John B Muciaccia Quotes

Mary Johnson Quotes

"A person could last a long while without touch, but once someone had experienced the comfort, joy, and sheer relief of another human body close, the desire to experience that again was hard to deny."

Steve Grand Quotes

"Consider yourself. I want you to imagine a scene from your childhood. Pick something evocative... Something you can remember clearly, something you can see, feel, maybe even smell, as if you were really there. After all, you really were there at the time, werent you? How else would you remember it? But here is the bombshell: you WERENT there. Not a single atom that is in your body today was there when that event took place. Every bit of you has been replaced many times over... The point is that you are like a cloud: something that persists over long periods, whilse simultaneously being in flux. Matter flows from place to place and momentarily comes together to be you. Whatever you are, therefore, you are not the stuff of which you are made."

Quotes About Idiot

"Maldita sea. ¿Crees que no me arrepiento de actuar como un idiota contigo? Me he disculpado por eso —Se quedó allí, imponente sobre mí—. No lo entiendes. Todo esto no es fácil para mí. Y sé que es difícil para ti. Tienes mucho con lo que tratar. Pero yo tenía a mi hermana y a toda una raza contando conmigo. No quería que te acercaras a mí. No quería otra persona por quien preocuparme, otra persona a quien perder." - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Quotes About Supporting Actors

"Wanting to be liked means being a supporting character in your own life, using the cues of the actors around you to determine your next line rather than your own script.

Quotes About Belonging To A School

"The key to activating maturation is to take care of the attachment needs of the child. To foster independance we must first invite dependance; to promote individuation we must provide a sense of belonging and unity; to help the child separate we must assume the responsibility for keeping the child close. We help a child let go by providing more contact and connection than he himself is seeking. When he asks for a hug, we give him a warmer one than he is giving us. We liberate children not by making them work for our love but by letting them rest in it. We help a child face the separation involved in going to sleep or going to school by satisfying his need for closeness." - Author: Gordon Neufeld

Quotes About Weird Things In Life

"And thats why Ive been talking only about you and the tension within you, because you are—not in a clichéd sense, but in a weirdly literal sense—the future. After you walk up here and walk back down, youre going to be the present. You will be the broken world and the act of changing it, in a way that you havent been before. You will be so many things, and the one thing that I wish Id known and want to say is, dont just be yourself. Be all of yourselves. Dont just live. Be that other thing connected to death. Be life. Live all of your life. Understand it, see it, appreciate it. And have fun." - Author: Joss Whedon

Quotes About Muscles

"While the bodies of young children are usually relaxed and flexible, if experiences of fear are continuous over the years, chronic tightening happens. Our shoulders may become permanently knotted and raised, our head thrust forward, our back hunched, our chest sunken. Rather than a temporary reaction to danger, we develop a permanent suit of armor. We become, as Chogyam Trungpa puts it, "a bundle of tense muscles defending our existence." We often dont even recognize this armor because it feels like such a familiar part of who we are. But we can see it in others. And when we are meditating, we can feel it in ourselves—the tightness, the areas where we feel nothing." - Author: Tara Brach
