"When youve experienced the real Marilyn, its difficult to watch a movie about her. I didnt want to have the memories of my experience tarnished in any way."

Tim Challies Quotes

"By giving us control, our new technologies tend to enhance existing idols in our lives. Instead of becoming more like Christ through the forming and shaping influence of the church community, we form, and shape, and personalize our community to make it more like us. We take control of things that are not ours to control. Could it be that our desire for control is short-circuiting the process of change and transformation God wants us to experience through the mess of real world, flesh and blood, face-to-face relationships?"

Hazel Osmond Quotes

"Theyve read too many of those romances with alpha males striding their way through them. They think that beneath all that granite theyre going to find a tender, injured soul crying out for their healing touch. Whereas I see someone whose mother didnt tell him to "make nice" enough when he was little. If he ever was little."

Quotes About Destruction And Rebirth

"Inside him, twenty years dissolved and mixed into one complex, swirling whole. Everything that had accumulated over the years-- all he had seen, all the words he has spoken, all the values he had held-- all of it coalesced into one solid, thick pillar in his heart, the core of which was spinning like a potters wheel. Wordlessly, Tengo observed the scene, as if watching the destruction and rebirth of a planet." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Miserable Friends

"I knew what I had to do. I had to find some way to make us not hate ourselves or each other for what wed done. If we slunk away, miserable and ashamed, the wrong was all we would remember for the rest of our lives. We would never remember the kindness and gentle affection of those first few weeks of slowly building friendship that had sprung up between us, and suddenly it seemed imperative that we not lose sight of that. We, together, were more than this one mistake. Yes, this was a category-5 shitstorm, a disaster of behemoth proportions, and it was going to leave a metric fuck-ton of emotional debris scattered in its wake, but before everything had gone off the rails, there had been some good, too, and I didnt want that obliterated by the bad." - Author: Amelia C.

Quotes About Quickness

"Poetry is the perpetual endeavor to express the spirit of the thing, to pass the brute body and search the life and reason which causes it to exist;—to see that the object is always flowing away, whilst the spirit or necessity which causes it subsists. Its essential mark is that it betrays in every word instant activity of mind, shown in new uses of every fact and image, in preternatural quickness or perception of relations. All its words are poems. It is a presence of mind that gives a miraculous command of all means of uttering the thought and feeling of the moment. The poet squanders on the hour an amount of life that would more than furnish the seventy years of the man that stands next him." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
