Cyndi Lauper Quotes

"You know, I do speak the Queens English. Its just the wrong Queens thats all. Its over the 59th Street Bridge. Its not over the Atlantic Ocean."

Mirra Ginsburg Quotes

"One of the most brilliant Russian writers of the twentieth century, Yevgeny Zamyatin belongs to the tradition in Russian literature represented by Gogol, Leskov, Bely, Remizov, and, in certain aspects of their work, also by Babel and Bulgakov. It is a tradition, paradoxically, of experimenters and innovators. Perhaps the principal quality that unites them is their approach to reality and its uses in art - the refusal to be bound by literal fact, the interweaving of reality and fantasy, the transmutation of fact into poetry, often grotesque, oblique, playful, but always expressive of the writers unique vision of life in his own, unique terms."

Kimberly Kincaid Quotes

"A loud, purposeful knock on the front door froze him in place with his fist over the fabric. "Hey, dude, its me. I brought you all four Bloodsport movies. Open up!" Jasons voice filtered past the front door, and he and Violet flew apart like teenagers at a party raid. No way. This wasnt happening. He had not just gotten cock-blocked by his best friend and partner, AKA the only living relative of the woman hed very nearly stripped naked in his front hallway."

PJ Parker Quotes

"I have created something and let it loose upon the world. Whether it was my right to do so or not, I cannot say. At times I am filled with love for my creation. At others I am filled with regret and horror. But it is done. It has been created."

Josh Hamilton Quotes

"The history of horror movies goes back a long way... of people trying to convincingly be terrified when looking at a piece of tape on the side of the camera box. I have a whole new respect for it."

"...al corazón no se le dan órdenes, decía, el corazón se rompe, y si se le dice que no se rompa se rompe igualmente, como el mío..."

Carol Vorderman Quotes

"Once you have children its love without bounds. You would die for them in an instant, without question. How can you better that?"

Ray Charles Quotes

"My version of Georgia became the state song of Georgia. That was a big thing for me, man. It really touched me. Here is a state that used to lynch people like me suddenly declaring my version of a song as its state song. That is touching."

Quotes About Morning Sunlight

"It was the cool gray dawn, and there was a delicious sense of repose and peace in the deep pervading calm and silence of the woods. Not a leaf stirred; not a sound obtruded upon great Natures meditation [...] Gradually the cool dim gray of the morning whitened, and as gradually sounds multiplied and life manifested itself. The marvel of Nature shaking off sleep and going to work unfolded itself to the musing boy [...] All Nature was wide awake and stirring, now; long lances of sunlight pierced down through the dense foliage far and near, and a few butterflies came fluttering upon the scene." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Selflessness In Divergent

"There were no formerly heroic times, and there was no formerly pure generation. There is no one here but us chickens, and so it has always been: A people busy and powerful, knowledgeable, ambivalent, important, fearful, and self-aware; a people who scheme, promote, deceive, and conquer; who pray for their loved ones, and long to flee misery and skip death. It is a weakening and discoloring idea, that rustic people knew God personally once upon a time-- or even knew selflessness or courage or literature-- but that it is too late for us. In fact, the absolute is available to everyone in every age. There never was a more holy age than ours, and never a less." - Author: Annie Dillard

Quotes About Organ Grinders

"In the country, spring is a time of small happenings happening quietly, hyacinth shoots thrusting in a garden, willows burning with a sudden frosty fire of green, lengthening afternoons of long flowing dusk, and midnight rain opening lilac; but in the city there is the fanfare of organ-grinders, and odors, undiluted by winter wind, clog the air; windows long closed go up, and conversation, drifting beyond a room, collides with the jangle of a peddlers bell." - Author: Truman Capote

Quotes About Warhead
