"whether the psychological problem is big or little, the cure comes when one learns to quit drawing negative form ones memory bank and withdraws positive instead"

Stephen King Quotes

"Sometimes shed go a whole day without thinking of him or missing him. Why not? She had quite a full life, and really, hed often been hard to deal with and hard to live with. A project, the Yankee oldtimers like her very own Dad might have said. And then sometimes a day would come, a gray one (or a sunny one) when she missed him so fiercely she felt empty, not a woman at all anymore but just a dead tree filled with cold November blow. She felt like that now, felt like hollering his name and hollering him home, and her heart turned sick with the thought of the years ahead and she wondered what good love was if it came to this, to even ten seconds of feeling like this."

Sir Walter Scott Quotes

"Those who remarked in the countenance of this young hero a dissolute audacity mingled with extreme haughtiness ... could not yet deny to his countenance that sort of comeliness which belongs to an open set of features, well formed by nature, modeled by art to the usual rules of courtesy, yet so far frank and honest, that they seemed as if they disclaimed to conceal the natural working of the soul."

Phil Plait Quotes

"Im tired of ignorance held up as inspiration, where vicious anti-intellectualism is considered a positive trait, and where uninformed opinion is displayed as fact."

David Wellington Quotes

"Hey." He glanced away from her, instead looking down at the coffin. He looked back at her and raised his eyebrows. "Want a peek?"

Quotes About Myles

"Myles kisses me back, almost hesitating before he does.But I dont give him the chance to stop me. Its like its not me doing these things, but some piece of myself thats been hidden away until now and has taken advantage of my current mental state to emerge. A part of my brain, or heart, or soul that needs to keep my lips moving against his, thats running my hands through his smooth, soft hair, thats pressing my body against his.And it wants more.For a second, Im sure Myles is going to pull away, but I push my body harder into him, circling my arms around his waist as his hands stroke my hair gently, like hes not sure what else hes supposed to do with them. Hes close. So close I can feel every muscle in his chest, every whisper of a breath he lets in or out.I dont know how we end up on the bed..." - Author: Nikki Rae

Quotes About Cherishing Loved Ones Before They Are Gone

"If you do not want what I want, please try not to tell me that my want is wrong. Or if my beliefs are different from yours, at least pause before you set out to correct them. Or if my emotion seems less or more intense than yours, given the same circumstances, try not to ask me to feel other than I do. Or if I act, or fail to act, in the manner of your design for action, please let me be. I do not, for the moment at least, ask you to understand me. That will come only when you are willing to give up trying to change me into a copy of you." - Author: David Keirsey

Quotes About Pre Med Students

"To make someone an icon is to make him an abstraction, and abstractions are incapable of vital communication with living people.1010 One has only to spend a term trying to teach college literature to realize that the quickest way to kill an authors vitality for potential readers is to present that author ahead of his time as "great" or "classic." Because then the author becomes for the students like medicine or vegetables, something the authorities have declared "good for them" that they "ought to like," at which point the students nictitating membranes come down, and everyone just goes through the requisite motions of criticism and paper-writing without feeling one real or relevant thing. Its like removing all oxygen from the room before trying to start a fire." - Author: David Foster Wallace

Quotes About Japanese Temples

"I like the relaxed way in which the Japanese approach religion. I think of myself as basically a moral person, but Im definitely not religious, and Im very tired of the preachiness and obsession with other peoples behavior characteristic of many religious people in the United States. As far as I could tell, theres nothing preachy about Buddhism. I was in a lot of temples, and I still dont know what Buddhists believe, except that at one point Kunio said If you do bad things, you will be reborn as an ox.This makes as much sense to me as anything I ever heard from, for example, the Reverend Pat Robertson." - Author: Dave Barry

Quotes About Proyectos

"Cuando hayamos aliviado lo mejor posible las servidumbres inútiles y evitado las desgracias innecesarias, siempre tendremos, para mantener tensas las virtudes heroicas del hombre, la larga serie de males verdaderos, la muerte, la vejez, las enfermedades incurables, el amor no correspondido, la amistad rechazada o vendida, la mediocridad de una vida menos vasta que nuestros proyectos y más opaca que nuestros ensueños - todas las desdichas causadas por la naturaleza divina de las cosas." - Author: Marguerite Yourcenar

Quotes About Kano

"Eh, Nikanor Ivanovich! the unknown man exclaimed soulfully. What are official and unofficial persons? It all depends on your point of view on the subject. Its all fluctuating and relative, Nikanor Ivanovich. Today Im a unofficial person, and tomorrow, lo and behold, Im an official one! And it happens the other way round -oh, how it does!" - Chapter 9" - Author: Mikhail Bulgakov
