Malinda Lo Quotes

"(...) she knew this: She was falling for this girl, this beautiful, beautiful girl, and she wanted to fall. She wanted to leap right now, arms spread wide, gravity pulling her down, the wind tearing at her hair. She didnt care if she crashed, as long as Amber crashed with her."

Rhyannon Byrd Quotes

"With a hoarse curse on his lips, Ashe shuddered against her. The night felt warmer, the air heavier…richer, as it pressed in on them. Lust spilled through his veins in a thick, decadent slide, more potent than any narcotic as it poured through his system. His tongue flicked against the velvety softness of her lower lip, coaxing her to accept him…to kiss him back. She shivered, blinking, then relented, her lips parting with a sigh…inviting him in, and he couldnt resist, sliding his tongue against hers in an explicit kiss that was wet and deep and hungry."

Ray Hunt Quotes

"The horse does of two things. He does what he thinks hes supposed to do, or he does what he thinks he needs to do to survive."

Gavin Newsom Quotes

"City government can and must help San Franciscans prepare for emergencies in order to avoid tragedy where possible and minimize loss of life and property when emergencies occur."

Amitav Ghosh Quotes

"It was a single poppy seed...she rolled it between her fingers and raised her eyes past the straining sails, to the star-filled vault above. On any other night she would have scanned the sky for the planet she had always thought to be the arbiter of her fate - but tonight her eyes dropped instead to the tiny sphere she was holding between her thumb and forefinger. She looked at the seed as if she had never seen one before, and suddenly she knew that it was not the planet above that governed her life: it was this minuscule orb - at once bountiful and all-devouring, merciful and destructive, sustaining and vengeful. This was her Shani, her Saturn."

Michaela Watkins Quotes

"I get to do physical comedy! When do women get to do physical comedy? Very rarely."

Charles Kettering Quotes

"An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, hes in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots."

Ashlyn Macnamara Quotes

"In my day, husbands and wives showed each other a suitable level of indifference."

Elizabeth Kolbert Quotes

"Such is the economy of nature," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "that no instance can be produced, of her having permitted any one race of her animals to become extinct; of her having formed any link in her great work so weak as to be broken." When, as President, he dispatched Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to the Northwest, Jefferson hoped that they would come upon live mastodons roaming the region."

"We come to life in the middle of stories that are not ours."

Quotes About Pain Being Good

Quotes About Being Tough In Life

"People persuade themselves they deserve easy lives, that being human makes us somehow exempt from pain. The theory works fine until we face the inevitable challenges. Our conditioning of denial in no way equips us to deal with the difficult times that not one of us escapes.Cleos motto seemed to be: Lifes tough and thats okay, because life is also fantastic. Love it, live it - but dont be fooled into thinking its not harsh sometimes. Those whove survived periods of bleakness are often better at savoring good times and wise enough to understand that good times are actually great." - Author: Helen Brown

Quotes About Organisms

"Signs imply ways of living, possibilities of existence, they are the symptoms of an overflowing (jaillissante) or exhausted (épuisée) life. But an artist cannot be content with an exhausted life, nor with a personal life. One does not write with ones ego, ones memory, and ones illnesses. In the act of writing theres an attempt to make life something more personal, to liberate life from what imprisons it...There is a profound link between signs, the event, life, and vitalism. It is the power of nonorganic life, that which can be found in a line of a drawing, a line of writing, a line of music. It is organisms that die, not life. There is no work of art that does not indicate an opening for life, a path between the cracks. Everything I have written has been vitalistic, at least I hope so, and constitutes a theory of signs and the event." - Author: Gilles Deleuze

Quotes About Deliberately

"She is the woman that contradicts Simone de Beauvoirs saying "One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman." She is the woman that makes your tooth pain seem like a trivial matter in comparison to the heartaches she causes as she deliberately passes by your side. She is the woman that makes your throat feel swollen and your tie to suddenly seem too tight. She is the woman that is able to take you to the seven heavens with a whisper; straight to cloud number nine.. She is the woman that erases all other women unintentionally and becomes without demanding the despot of your heart. She is the woman that sends you back and forth to purgatory and resurrects you with each unintended touch. She is the woman that will ask of you to burn Rome just to collect for her a handful of dust." - Author: Malak El Halabi

Et on achète des députés aussi !Les gens qui nont ni suif, ni veau, ni chaussettes à vendre, ont leur conscience et leur votes, quand ilssont députés, on les leur achète." - Author: Paul Lafargue

Quotes About Already Knowing The Truth

"I dont wish for the red house back, not really, yet in a way, I wish for everything back that ever was, everything that once seemed like forever and yet has vanished . . . Standing here on an empty hilltop in New Hampshire, as a bulldozer slowly pushes the debris of a small red house into a neat pile, I allow, just for a moment, the past to push hard against the walls of my heart. Being alive, it seems, means learning to bear the weight of the passing of all things. It means finding a way to lightly hold all the places weve loved and left anyway, all the moments and days and years that have already been lived and lost to memory, even as we live on in the here and now, knowing full well that this moment, too, is already gone. It means, always, allowing for the hard truth of endings. It means, too, keeping faith in beginnings." - Author: Katrina Kenison
