Massad Ayoob Quotes

"Those of us who have seen violent death up close, who have seen what high-powered bullets can do to living human tissue, have a horror of inflicting that nightmarish, never forgotten damage on a fellow human being. Perhaps the only more terrifying prospect is that such a fate should befall us or our loved ones. This is why we, a representative cross-section of Americas population, keep deadly weapons for personal defense."

Kathleen Edwards Quotes

"Youre reluctant to give too much away when youre going to put it out there for other people. Its harder writing your truest fears and loves and guilts, because youre not sure when youre writing the right story."

Mary Ann Shaffer Quotes

"The German officers said any soldier caught stealing food from our gardens would be shot. One poor soldier was caught stealing a potato. He was chased by his own people and climbed up a tree to hide. But they found him and shot him down out of the tree. Still, that did not stop them from stealing food. I am not pointing a finger at those practices, because some of us were doing the same. I figure hunger makes you desperate when you wake to it every morning."

Xavier Quotes

Quotes About Reassurance In Love

Quotes About Life The Universe And Everything

"When John left the band, I resented him for not being my friend and for abandoning our musical comradeship. But all the time that he was out of the band and going through his anguish, I prayed for him constantly. From going to meetings Id learned that one of the reasons that alcoholics get loaded is because they harbor resentments. One of the techniques they teach to get rid of a resentment toward somebody is to pray for him or her to get everything that you want for yourself in life-to be loved, to be successful, to be healthy, to be rich, to be wonderful, to be happy, to be alive with the light and the love of the universe. Its a paradox, but it works. You sit there and pray for the person you cant stand to get everything on earth that you would want for yourself, and one day youre like I dont feel anything bad toward this person." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Conducta

"Si dejas obra, muere tranquilo, confiando en unos pocos buenos amigos. Nunca permitas que te vuelvan persona mayor, hombre respetable.

Jamás ahorres. Nunca te vuelvas una persona seria. Haz de la irreflexión y de la contradicción tu norma de conducta. Elimina las treguas recoge tu hogar en el daño, el exceso y la tembladera.Todo es tuyo. A todo tienes derecho y cóbralo caro." - Author: Andrés Caicedo

Quotes About Reserved Love

"A man can be beautiful, I see that now. Its not just a womans term, not a word reserved for romantic, virtuous, elegant things. I dont think beauty is neat anymore. Its unordered. Its unbrushed hair and a torn back pocket. Its bright and strange and lovely, and if I were to paint him, Id use all the warm colours - ochre, gold, plum, terracotta, scarlet, burnt orange. I want him to see me as I saw him then, I want him to find me alone at the end of the day with the sun in my hair. I want his heart to buckle, too. I want him to stop someone out in the square and say, whos that? Do you know her? Where is she from?"— - from Eve Greens mothers account."It is written on a piece of thin, yellow paper, and is folded in half. I like this account. I like it because its true, shes right. We all want out lovers to see us that way - unaware, natural, serene. We want to change their world with one glance, to stop their breath at the sight of us." - Author: Susan Fletcher

They went on talkingEnglish every which way. They refused to read books they couldntunderstand" - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
