"Mostly I have felt myself becoming a servant of sadness. I am still looking for the beauty in that."

Christine OKeeffe Lafser Quotes

"I am not functioning very well. Living with the knowledge that the baby is dead is painful. I feel so far away from you, God. I can only try to believe that you are sustaining me and guiding me through this. Please continue to stand by my side."

Richard Lange Quotes

"I like the way we talk to each other. It feels honest. It was different with Manuel. One of us always had to win. Husbands and wives do that, worry more about being right than being truthful."

Gerald Schroeder Quotes

"Now if there is anything in this universe for which we do not have an "inkling," it is the ultimate goal of the Creator. Erroneous notions regarding this goal often stem from the misconception that all existence exists for man alone. The foible in this perception of the universe is the failure to realize that existence itself is good. The Five Books of Moses are bracketed by explicit statements of the worth of being. At the start we are told: "And God saw all that was made and behold it was very good" (Gen. 1:31)"

Andrew Piper Quotes

Alexander Fleming Quotes

"One sometimes finds what one is not looking for."

Victoria Finlay Quotes

"Human life is fragile: we live in the space between one breath and the next. We often try to maintain an illusion of permanence, through what we do, say, wear, buy, and how we enjoy ourselves and who and how we love. Yet it is an illusion that is constantly being undermined by change and death. We can use diamonds in whatever way we like. They are empty things, pretty as water, yet within them—if we want to see it—there is blood, dust, love, curses, and suffering. There is desire to make someone happy, there is admiration, there is ostentation…and there is a companys profit curve."

Quotes About Being Realistic In Life

"Just as we all like love tales because there is an instinct of sex, we all like astonishing tales because they touch the nerve of the ancient instinct of astonishment. This is proved by the fact that when we are very young children we do not need fairy tales: we only need tales. Mere life is interesting enough. A child of seven is excited by being told that Tommy opened a door and saw a dragon. But a child of three is excited by being told that Tommy opened a door. Boys like romantic tales; but babies like realistic tales -- because they find them romantic. In fact, a baby is about the only person, I should think, to whom a modern realistic novel could be read without boring him." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

"Sex is the strongest force in the universe. Forget about the Grand Unifying Theory, Stephen Hawking, Ill tell you what it is: women. Arent women the strongest sex?

Im gonna go kill me a saber-toothed woolly mammoth anbring it on home to eat tonight. Wa-haaaaaa!" We dont have tits; we couldnt nourish a gnat." - Author: Steven Tyler
