Adam Berlin Quotes

"Like the line of love, I thought. Once crossed you cant go back. Like the line between past and future. Or maybe really the line between past and now. The now my father spoke of. When I raced ... I would cross the line and there was no more thinking about what was going to be because it was. It happened that fast."

Quotes About Attachment And Detachment

"Allowing attachments to people/things create a compulsive addiction in us to be controlling. This "control" (fueled by fear of loss) fools us into a false sense of security and love. At first glance, it is common to confuse the idea of Conscious Detachment with non-feeling or being cold, however learning this skill is a giant leap towards enlightenment. When you consciously detach from an object or a loved one, you empower them to exist at their potential. From this perspective, just being in their presence fosters feelings of love and admiration that far exceed any relationship that is limited with expectations, confinement and control" - Author: Gary Hopkins

Quotes About Not Being Loved By Parents

"I realize its commonplace for parents to say to their child sternly, I love you, but I dont always like you. But what kind of love is that? It seems to me that comes down to, Im not oblivious to you - that is, you can still hurt my feelings - but I cant stand having you around. Who wants to be loved like that? Given a choice, I might skip the deep blood tie and settle for being liked. I wonder if wouldnt have been more moved if my own mother had taken me in her arms and said, I like you. I wonder if just enjoying your kids company isnt more important." - Author: Lionel Shriver

Quotes About Delicate Flower

"I had not seen "Pride and Prejudice," till I read that sentence of yours, and then I got the book. And what did I find? An accurate daguerreotyped portrait of a common-place face; a carefully fenced, highly cultivated garden, with neat borders and delicate flowers; but no glance of a bright, vivid physiognomy, no open country, no fresh air, no blue hill, no bonny beck. I should hardly like to live with her ladies and gentlemen, in their elegant but confined houses." - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About Bloodline

"I saw Dads eyes widen just a fraction when he heard my voice catch. He glanced at me but quickly turned away. He didnt want me to see his reaction, but I did, and Ill never forget it. In that brief glimpse, I could see what he was thinking behind that fixed stare. There would be no grandkids, there would be no more Creed family bloodline, nothing else to look forward to. From that point on Id become the last, most devastating disappointment in what he thought his life had added up to--one overwhelming failure." - Author: Perry Moore
