Tom Miller Quotes

"Great travel writing consists of equal parts curiosity, vulnerability and vocabulary. It is not a terrain for know-it-alls or the indecisive. The best of the genre can simply be an elegant natural history essay, a nicely writ sports piece, or a well-turned profile of a bar band and its music. A well-grounded sense of place is the challenge for the writer. We observe, we calculate, we inquire, we look for a link between what we already know and what were about to learn. The finest travel writing describes whats going on when nobodys looking."

Shon Hopwood Quotes

"A computer search would have given me a list of pertinent cases, but without that I had to read everything. That is harder by far, but you end up learning a lot more. I was forced to remember cases because making copies of everything was too expensive. Keeping cases in your head is good, too, because cases are like puzzle pieces floating around in your mind, and sometimes, in moments of creativity, they fall into place and form a picture. If they were words on a screen that you could pull up anytime you wished, that phenomenon wouldnt happen as easily."

Jennifer Snyder Quotes

"Le había dicho una vez que nunca sería demasiado tarde para dejarlo y yo me lo creí. Ahora, sosteniendo su cuerpo sin vida en mis brazos, supe que había sido una mentira. Existió su "demasiado tarde". Ahora. En este momento."

Hector Torres Quotes

"Pero la vida tiene el engañoso ritmo del stop motion. Crees asistir al laborioso paso de los días, tomados foto a foto, cuesta arriba en la producción, y cuando te das cuenta en realidad estaba corriendo la película. Y te ves de pronto leyendo los créditos."

Charlotte Whitton Quotes

"Big words seldom accompany good deeds."

Quotes About Bridesmaid Dresses

"I thought bridesmaids dresses were supposed to be horrid and ugly to make the bride more stunning," I joked to her in a whisper."Yeah right, you marry a gorgeous actor and you want me to show up in a Goodwill special? No way sister! There are bound to be other single, gorgeous actors around, and I intend to land one of them for myself. Or get laid at the very least."..." - Author: Chasta Schneider

Quotes About The United Nations Security Council

"Why should a great and powerful nation like the United States allow its relationship with more than a billion Muslims around the world to be defined by the narrow hatred and nihilistic actions of an exceptionally small minority of Muslims?" - Author: John O. Brennan

Quotes About Deer

"Down at the old house, Ive made a serious effort to rejuvenate what was once my garden and lawn. And Ive been rewarded with all sorts of forgotten and neglected plants making surprise appearances. Random daffodils and narcissus. A fairy rose that I thought was gone forever. And, despite some very enthusiastic pruning by the local deer population, the little plum trees look as if they will survive. There is one that is very battered as the deer used it to rub the velvet off their antlers, but it is sending up some shoots and it may yet live for another year. So. Spring. The most forgiving season of the year." - Author: Megan Lindholm

Quotes About Mclachlan

"Ive known pain my whole life, but this is a new kind for me. It isnt born of something wrong or ugly. This pain is conceived out of beauty— my love for Jack Henry McLachlan. I embrace it.

Quotes About Drummond

"He weighs the volume in his hand; this one has been the center of the whirlwind. Then DRUMMOND notices the Bible on the JUDGEs bench. He picks up the Bible in his other hand; he looks from one volume to the other, balancing them thoughtfully, as if his hands were scales. He half-smiles, half-shrugs. Then DRUMMOND slaps the two books together and jams them in his brief case, side by side. Slowly, he climbs to the street level and crosses the empty square." - Author: Jerome Lawrence

Quotes About Caring For The Earth

"Walk in kindness toward the Earth and every living being. Without kindness and compassion for all of Mother Natures creatures, there can be no true joy; no internal peace, no happiness. Happiness flows from caring for all sentient beings as if they were your own family, because in essence they are. We are all connected to each other and to the Earth." - Author: Sylvia Dolson

Quotes About Secret Love Affairs

"I m not about to tell him that I am just like Anna and Emma, an adulteress. My books are my secret lovers, the friends I run to to get away from the daily drudgeries of life, to try out something new, and yes, to get away, for a few hours, from him. He doesnt need to know that my books are the affairs I dont have." - Author: Sara Nelson

Quotes About Journeys In The Bible

"While some dismiss the Bible as a dusty old book, I view its pages as portals to adventure. Not only is the book chock-full of clever plots and compelling stories, but its laced with historical insights and literary beauty. When I open the Scripture, I imagine myself exploring an ancient kingdom . . . With every encounter, I learn something new about their life journeys and am reminded that the Bible is more than a record of the human quest for God: its the revelation of Gods quest for us." - Scouting the Divine" - Author: Margaret Feinberg

Quotes About Moms Funny

"Brooding is more something I do when Im working. I know so much more about sitting around worrying about a work project than I do about worrying about kids. This could just be a fact of life for older moms. Weve worked and worked and worked and if we are lucky enough to finally have a child or two, we find ourselves suddenly catapulted into a most alien kind of chaos. Work is so much easier. Anyone will tell you that. To have a desk, where you have everything all lined up, and a schedule you more or less get to agree to. Work. I am a worker. This is so funny because I never really think of my work as work. I certainly never though of myself as having a career. Writing, work, this is just who I am. I am a person who sits at a desk and makes phone calls and taps at a computer keyboard and sips coffee and calls her mom at five. That I am anything better or smaller than that has come as sudden news to me. Brand new.News." - Author: Jeanne Marie Laskas
