John Burnside Quotes

"He was someone who had to live alone, someone who found it difficult to be with others for any length of time, because he only had one mode - that discreet art of withdrawal which had, no doubt, taken him years to perfect. He had no other strategies for getting along with people and, though his colleagues probably saw this as the mark of a gentle, erudite, considerate soul, I was suddenly able to see right through it. Not because I was so very perceptive, but because I was so like him. He had been living in that one mode for so long, he had almost forgotten about it, but I was a near-beginner, and for me it was painfully obvious."

Reinaldo Arenas Quotes

"My sexual activity was all with animals. First there were the hens, then the goats and the sows, and after I had grown up some more, the mares."

Rebecca Bloom Quotes

"Jonah was cute and all before I left, but in Paris he became a God. It was a rather simple equation: loneliness + silly crush - reality check = full-blown obsession. "

Prentice Mulford Quotes

"In the spiritual life every person is his or her own discoverer, and you need not grieve if your discoveries are not believed in by others. It is your business to push on find more and increase individual happiness"

Wilt Chamberlain Quotes

"I guarantee you, if you could give me 10 points in all those seventh games against the Boston Celtics, instead of Bill Russell having 11 rings, I couldve at least had nine or eight."

Nicola Barker Quotes

"And it was that self-same summer—June 5th, if precision is your watchword—that I first set eyes on a stringy southern hemisphere home-boy, a man-boy, a prankish puck by the name of La Roux (with very bad skin and even worse instincts), who sailed into the slow-beating heart of our half-arsed, high-strung, low-bred family, then casually capsized himself, but left us all drowning (now they dont teach you that at the Sea Scouts, do they?)."

Paulette Goddard Quotes

"I am not temperamental. I just know what I want and if I dont have it, I try to get it."

Peter Thiel Quotes

"In a world where wealth is growing, you can get away with printing money. Doubling the debt over the next 20 years is not a problem."

Margaret Halsey Quotes

"Bulldogs have been known to fall on their swords when confronted by my superior tenacity."

Tavis Smiley Quotes

"I still think in this country, and this might surprise you, the one thing that George Bush said as president that I do agree with, I love that phrase, the soft bigotry of low expectations."

Quotes About Friends Become Strangers

"…food is capable of feeding far more than a rumbling stomach. Food is life; our well-being demands it. Food is art and magic; it evokes emotion and colors memory, and in skilled hands, meals become greater than the sum of their ingredients. Food is self-evident; plucked right from the ground or vine or sea, its power to delight is immediate. Food is discovery; finding an untried spice or cuisine is for me like uncovering a new element. Food is evolution; how we interpret it remains ever fluid. Food is humanitarian: sharing it bridges cultures, making friends of strangers pleasantly surprised to learn how much common ground they ultimately share." - Author: Anthony Beal

Quotes About Unhappy Workplace

"Among these temperamentally unhappy campers are "reactant" personalities, who focus on what they often wrongly perceive as others attempts to control them. In one experiment, some of these touchy individuals were asked to think of two people they knew: a bossy sort who advocated hard work and a mellow type who preached la dolce vita. Then, one of the names was flashed before the subjects too briefly to register in their conscious awareness. Next, the subjects were given a task to perform. Those who had been exposed to the hard-driving name performed markedly worse than those exposed to the easygoing name. Even this weak, subliminal attention to an emotional cue that suggested control was enough to get their reactant backs up and cause them to act to their own disadvantage. All relationships involve give-and-take and cooperation, so a person who habitually attends to ordinary requests or suggestions like a bull to a red flag is in for big trouble in both home and workplace." - Author: Winifred Gallagher

Quotes About White Wine

"First of all, lets get one thing straight. Your Italy and our Italia are not the same thing. Italy is a soft drug peddled in predictable packages, such as hills in the sunset, olive groves, lemon trees, white wine, and raven-haired girls. Italia, on the other hand, is a maze. Its alluring, but complicated. Its the kind of place that can have you fuming and then purring in the space of a hundred meters, or in the course of ten minutes. Italy is the only workshop in the world that can turn out both Botticellis and Berlusconis." - Author: Beppe Severgnini

Quotes About Baskin Robbins

"I harbor ill feelings toward a society, and a clergy, that allows marriage partners to split over the smallest incompatibility, where divorce comes in a multitude of flavors, like Baskin Robbins ice cream, where men and women can blame one another and everything except themselves for matrimonys mess. They look for externals over which they have no control and, fingering them, take no responsibility." - Author: Robert Dykstra

Quotes About Similarities And Differences

"No one ever really learns from history, because choices never present themselves in exactly the same way, and because you can always choose similarities and differences to fit current needs." - Author: James Fallows

Quotes About Pair

"Well, fortunately for me, Mouses windows are tinted far beyond the legal limit. Its like sitting inside a giant pair of sunglasses.

Quotes About Leaving My Family
