James Gould Cozzens Quotes

"At Childerstown High School and at college he had never led his class nor taken prizes; but, without being aware that he did, he really blamed this on his failure to work hard, or any harder than he needed to. . . . What he did not know, what Paul Bonbright, among others, showed him, was that those abilities of his that got him, without distinction but also without much exertion, through all previous lessons and examinations, were not first rate abilities handicapped by laziness, but second rate, by no degree of effort or assiduity to be made the equal of abilities like Bonbrights."

Robin Silverman Quotes

"Because minds do blow and hearts do break. Those are not just sayings. And wolves and roaches are not the only creatures that chew off their legs to get out of traps—human beings do that, too."

Doris Ulmann Quotes

"A face that has the marks of having lived intensely, that expresses some phase of life, some dominant quality or intellectual power, constitutes for me an interesting face. For this reason the face of an older person, perhaps not beautiful in the strictest sense, is usually more appealing than the face of a younger person who has scarcely been touched by life."

Quotes About Governments

"O gouvernment francais, I think it was not very clever of You to put this terrible doll in La Ferte; for when Governments are found dead there is always a little doll on top of them, pulling and tweaking with his little hands to get back at the microscopic knife which sticks firmly in the quiet meat of their hearts." - Author: E.E. Cummings

Quotes About Love Philosophers

"Read for yourselves, read for the sake of your inspiration, for the sweet turmoil in your lovely head. But also read against yourselves, read for questioning and impotence, for despair and erudition, read the dry sardonic remarks of cynical philosophers like Cioran or even Carl Schmitt, read newspapers, read those who despise, dismiss or simply ignore poetry and try to understand why they do it. Read your enemies, read those who reinforce your sense of whats evolving in poetry, and also read those whose darkness or malice or madness or greatness you cant understand because only in this way will you grow, outlive yourself, and become what you are." - Author: Adam Zagajewski

Quotes About Fake Family

"Chemistry is one of these crazy things you cant teach or learn or you cant fake. You go in hoping it will work, hope that you will connect with the other actors. I was fortunate on Modern Family and The Procession. They are great people, very easy to like." - Author: Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Quotes About Howls

"I turned to Ren, dropping my head low to honor the fallen alpha. The circled wolves did the same. I lifted my muzzle first, my howl singing out the pain of Rens death, mourning him. One by one my packmates joined the song. Our howls filled the library, spilling into the winter night. The death song grew as the wolves still outside raised their voices to honor the lost young warrior. The chorus of wolf cries, full of heartache, swelled in the night, carrying Rens memory to the very stars." - Author: Andrea Cremer

Quotes About Tyrants

"During the next hundred years, the question for those who love liberty is whether we can survive the most insidious and duplicitous attacks from within, from those who undermine the virtues of our people, doing in advance the work of the Father of Lies. "There is no such thing as truth," they teach even the little ones. "Truth is bondage. Believe what seems right to you. There are as many truths as there are individuals. Follow your feelings. Do as you please. Get in touch with your self. Do what feels comfortable." Those who speak in this way prepare the jails of the twenty-first century. They do the work of tyrants." - Author: Michael Novak

Quotes About Inspirational Cliffs

Quotes About Bon Voyage

Quotes About Morning Walks

"It is 12:23 in the morning, and people are coming to be here, coming to help. They saw what happened, and they cant stay in their houses. Not just Harry and Craigs friends. But their friends parents, too. Jim from the tech crew has sped over with more lights from his basement. There have to be at least a dozen people. Then more than a dozen. Smitas mom is here. Two more police officers. And a man Harrys never seen before walks up and goes straight to Mr. Bellamy, saying, "Im staying right here with you." They wear matching rings." - Author: David Levithan
