Quotes About Quiet

"Ill be able to forget you after that." A bald-faced lie. Even if I turned ninety, lost my mind and forgot everything else, the memory of the Winter prince would be a shining beacon that would never fade.Ash still wavered, looking torn. His eyes flicked to the door, and for a moment I thought he would walk away, leaving me to shrivel into a mortified heap. But then he let out a quiet sigh, and his shoulders slumped in resignation.Meeting my gaze, he took one step forward, drew me into his arms, and brushed his lips to mine.I think our last kiss was meant to be quick and chaste, but... There was nothing sweet or gentle in our last kiss; it was filled with sorrow and desperation, of the bitter knowledge that we couldve had something perfect, but it just wasnt meant to be. "Dont ask me this again," he rasped, and I was too breathless to answer." - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Environmental Change

"Planting trees, I myself thought for a long time, was a feel-good thing, a nice but feeble response to our litany of modern-day environmental problems.

Planting trees may be the single most important ecotechnology that we have to put the broken pieces of our planet back together." - Author: Jim Robbins
