David Nevins Quotes

"I sold Time Life books on the telephone. Its probably the only pure skill job Ive ever had. When youre on and youre good, you get yes after yes. When youre slightly off, you get rejection after rejection. It was one of the greatest jobs I ever had. It was brutal."

Drew Barrymore Quotes

"I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows."

Mark Jeffrey Quotes

". . . and together youre what, the Super Friends?"

St Vincent De Paul Quotes

"You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket. But you will keep your gentleness and your smile. It is not enough to give soup and bread. This the rich can do. You are the servant of the poor, always smiling and good-humored. They are your masters, terribly sensitive and exacting master you will see. And the uglier and the dirtier they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them. It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them."

David Strorm Quotes

"But the main reason you should read this is that I dont see why I should have to know all these terrible, terrible things and you should get off scot free."

KT Bryan Quotes

Michelle Cooper Quotes

"And Ill gaze across the chasm to the other side of the island, where I can still sometimes catch sight of a curly-haired urchin running joyously through the tall purple grass, her faithful dog at her heels."

Alan K Simpson Quotes

Quotes About Wand

"This tremendous event is still on its way, still wandering; it has not yet reached the ears of men. Lightning and thunder require time; the light on the stars requires time; deeds though done, still require time to be seen and heard. This deed is still more distant from them than the most distant stars - and yet they have done it themselves." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Feelings Not Being The Same

"It is no more natural and no less conventional to shout in anger or to kiss in love than to call a table a table. Feelings and passional conduct are invented like words. Even those which like paternity seem to be part and parcel of the human make-up are in reality institutions. It is impossible to superimpose on man a lower layer of behavior which one chooses to call natural followed by a manufactured cultural or spiritual world. Everything is both manufactured and natural in man as it were in the sense that there is not a word, not a form of behavior which does not owe something to purely biological being and which at the same time does not elude the simplicity of animal life and cause forms of vital behavior to deviate from their pre-ordained direction through a sort of leakage and through a genius for ambiguity which might serve to define man." - Author: Maurice Merleau Ponty

Quotes About Banquete

"Mortal, what hast thou of such grave concernThat thou indulgest in too sickly plaints?Why this bemoaning and beweeping death?For if thy life aforetime and behindTo thee was grateful, and not all thy goodWas heaped as in sieve to flow awayAnd perish unavailingly, why not,Even like a banqueter, depart the hall,Laden with life?" - Author: Lucretius

Quotes About Holes In Life

"We are focusing on the small details and hiding the misery in the world. Look at the smoker and we miss global warming, war, and the crap we eat--not the bad guys but smoking. I smoke and they talk about cancer, I eat and they talk about cholesterol, I make love, its AIDS. Before AIDS and cholesterol and cancer theres the pleasure of making love and eating and smoking. I have to die someday, so if the thing that gave me pleasure all of my life kills me instead of me going under a truck, thats fine. Besides, why should I live so that when I die I give fresh meat to the worms? I hope that I am rotted and they dont want to eat me. F@#$ck the worms." - Author: Marjane Satrapi

Quotes About Everyday Learning

".....listening means learning to hear someones inner world and deepest feelings with far greater attention in order that we dont let our own assumptions get in the way. The dying may speak in images far more akin to dreamland than the world of everyday reality. In order to understand them we have to make adjustments to comprehend a poetic form of expression that is sometimes elusive but actually far more expressive than the world of facts." - Author: Robert L. Wise

Quotes About Addition And Subtraction

"Because this, after all, was the basic truth they all chose to live by: that love was no finite commodity. That it was not subject to the cruel reckoning of addition and subtraction, that to give to one did not necessarily mean to take from another; that the heart, in its infinite capacity-even the confused and cheating heart of the man in front of her, even the paltry thing now clenched and faltering inside her own chest-could open itself to all who would enter, like a house with windows and doors thrown wide, like the heart of God itself, vast and accommodating and holy, a mansion of rooms without number, full of multitudes without end." - Author: Brady Udall
