Hemingway Ernest Quotes

Aubrey Williams Quotes

"There exists a great uncertainty that comes with life. It is like a tree, its roots formed below the surface, its body penetrating a layer of top soil, its roots spreading outward, and affecting the domain it inhabits. With this natural uncertainty one feels lost, almost incapable of discovering his or her own true purpose. With all of this, one begins to search for that true purpose, always unsure if it is the right path. These feelings come from within, fueled by a catalyst that instills these doubts. However, with its great power, the catalyst is undefinable and unyielding. It is then within question if one can truly move away from the catalyst or really understand how one should feel when affected by it."

Quotes About I Gave It My All

"I slept and I woke. She gave me a ring made from a leaf, a cluster of golden berries, a flower that opened and closed at the stroking of a finger....And once, when I startled awake with my face wet and my chest aching, she reached out to lay her hand on top of mine. The gesture was so tentative, her expression so anxious, you would think she had never touched a man before. As if she was worried I might break or burn or bite. Her cool hand lay on mine for a moment, gentle as a moth. She squeezed my hand softly, waited, then pulled away.It struck me as odd at the time. But I was too clouded with confusion and grief to think clearly. Only now, looking back, do I realize the truth of things. With all the awkwardness of a young lover, she was trying to comfort me, and she didnt have the slightest idea how." - Author: Patrick Rothfuss

Quotes About Distress Tolerance

"Perhaps the perusal of such works may, without injustice, be compared with the use of opiates, baneful, when habitually and constantly resorted to, but of most blessed power in those moments of pain and of langour, when the whole head is sore, and the whole heart sick. If those who rail indiscriminately at this species of composition, were to consider the quantity of actual pleasure it produces, and the much greater proportion of real sorrow and distress which it alleviates, their philanthropy ought to moderate their critical pride, or religious intolerance." - Author: Walter Scott

Quotes About Amateurism

"Sometime Im going to do an essay called The Virtues of Amateurism for all of those people who wish they earned their living in the arts. The market kills more artistic people than anything else. Its a world of safety out there, for most people. They want safety, the magazines and manufacturers give them safety, give them homogeneity, give them the familiar and comfortable, dont challenge them." - Author: Robert James Waller

Quotes About Hockey Hair

"Sometimes parents dont find what theyre looking for it their child, so they plant seeds for what theyd like to grow there instead. Ive witnessed this with the former hockey player who takes his son out to skate before he can even walk. Or in the mother who gave up her ballet dreams when she married, but now scrapes her daughters hair into a bun and watched from the wings of the stage. We are not, as youd expect, orchestrating their lives; we are not even trying for a second chance. We are hoping that if this one thing takes root, it might take up enough light and space to keep something else from developing in our children: the disappointment weve already lived." - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Blowing Things Up

"Electricity," Purva said, rolling the strange new word around in her mouth, giving it at once an Australian and a French inflection."Sir William was playing around with it when we met, do you remember?" Jack said to Clare. "He was storing charges in boxes.""I remember he was blowing things up," Clare replied."Six of one..." Jack grinned. "Nobody really knows how it works, but down here it powers most of the lights in the big cities and parts of the automobiles and the stoves in the train kitchen. You can store the power in blocks, then hook it up to anything you might otherwise run on a boiler. Its cooler, and the blocks last longer than coal. I think I can reproduce it when we get home, if I can take enough schematics with me.""He is going to kill himself," Purva said, but her tone was casual, not overly worried."Im not going to kill myself," Jack answered, equally casual. "Just because it can cause your heart to stop doesnt mean it always does." - Author: Sam Starbuck

Quotes About Vitamine

"I must admit that when I chose the name, vitamine, I was well aware that these substances might later prove not to be of an amine nature. However, it was necessary for me to choose a name that would sound well and serve as a catchword, since I had already at that time no doubt about the importance and the future popularity of the new field." - Author: Casimir Funk

Quotes About A Gift From A Friend

"MT [Mother Teresa] was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God.

Quotes About Arcadia

"Well, I have to say its mighty nice of them Daimons to clean up after themselves when you kill them. Its much better than slaying an Arcadian. (He held his hands up to them.) Look, Ma, no mess.

Quotes About Lips By Shakespeare

"I have been right, Basil, havent I, to take my love out of poetry, and to find my wife in Shakespeares plays? Lips that Shakespeare taught to speak have whispered their secret in my ear. I have had the arms of Rosalind around me, and kissed Juliet on the mouth." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Feeling Withdrawn

"Which of my feelings are real? Which of the mes is me? The wild, impulsive, chaotic, energetic, and crazy one? Or the shy, withdrawn, desperate, suicidal, doomed, and tired one? Probably a bit of both, hopefully much that is neither." - Author: Kay Redfield Jamison
