Joanna Fay Quotes

"His gaze ran over her body again, resting on the deepest of the fracture lines in her shields. Come here.Purple feathers fanned around Rianas sides. Sudden tears moistened her eyes at the unexpectedness of what Sier was offering. She sank against him, and his arms folded around her back. Her weight supported, Riana let herself float on the night and tucked her face into his neck. Siers power closed around her in a violet wave, running into her halo, slipping though her opened shields."

It contains principles of salvation. And if you will walk by its light and obey its precepts you will be saved in the everlasting kingdom of God."

Cheryl Hersha Quotes

"The programme into which Cheryl was inducted combined all the different ways the intelligence community had learned could cause intense psychological change in adults and children. It had been learned through the use of both knowledgeable and unwitting volunteers. They were subjected to sensory overload, isolation, drugs and hypnosis, all used on bodies that had been weakened from mild hunger. The horror of the programme was that it would be like having an elementary school sex education class conducted by a paedophile rapist. It would have been banned had the American government signed the Helsinki Accords. But, of course, they hadnt. For the test that day and in those that followed, Cheryl Hersha was positioned so she faced a portable movie screen. A 16mm movie projector was on a platform, along with several reels of film.

Quotes About Red Nail Polish

"He sat on the edge of my bed. He didnt say anything at first, just stared at my toenails. I curled them under instinctively and immediately was worried that Id messed up my painting job. I let them uncurl. Only one was marred. I used my thumb to rub most of the polish off of it and then I stared at my foot, which suddenly looked so vulnerable and imperfect with the one toe ringed in hot pink polish but bare on the inside of the nail. Like Id started but had forgotten to finish being beautiful." - Author: Jennifer Brown

Quotes About Doubt And Uncertainty

"With our limited senses and consciousness, we only glimpse a small portion of reality. Furthermore, everything in the universe is in a state of constant flux. Simple words and thoughts cannot capture this flux or complexity. The only solution for an enlightened person is to let the mind absorb itself in what it experiences, without having to form a judgment on what it all means. The mind must be able to feel doubt and uncertainty for as long as possible. As it remains in this state and probes deeply into the mysteries of the universe, ideas will come that are more dimensional and real than if we had jumped to conclusions and formed judgments early on." - Author: Robert Greene
