Quotes About Enamored

"I am not, as you will have observed, a man greatly enamored of his fellow human beings. I do not enter lightly into the foibles and whimsicalities of others, I do not suffer fools gladly, I seem able, in conversation, only to needle or be needled. My relationships, as a result, are few, and those few are tenuous, prickly sorts of arrangements, altogether lacking in the spontaneity and intimacy for which humans, Im told, have an instinctive need. I am aware of no such instincts myself." - Author: Patrick McGrath

Quotes About Abril

"El 10 de abril: <> Bueno, ¿y qué era? Todavía no lo sé.

Pero ninguno de estos rasgos bastaba para atraerme compulsiva, totalmente. Cada atractivo se apoyaba en otro. Ella me atraía como un todo, como una suma insustituible de atractivos, acaso sustituibles." - Author: Mario Benedetti

Quotes About Those Who Have Passed

"As we passed by on the stony causeway, women looked up at us from the fields, their faces furrowed with all known distresses.

Quotes About Ripred

"All of the creatures were staring fixedly at Boots. She was standing on the back of her loyal cockroach friend, Temp, smack in the middle of the octagon, singing "The Itsy-Bisty Spider" at the top of her lungs. The green spider, to whom the song principially was directed, seemed to be cringing. Boots was somewhat off-key, but Gregor was pretty sure it was the loudness that was making the arachnid hunch down and contract. "She has been going on like this for hours," whispered Nerissa. "Days more like it," said Ripred in disgust."Next I will sing one for you!" announced Boots, pointing at the bat, who actually flinched." - Author: Suzanne Collins
