"Its only a story. As if such words made it less real. But I did not believe him even then, for stories were written down, and the words on the page were proof enough. Fixed and permanent in time, the words, if anything, made the people and places more real than the everchanging world."

Jojo Moyes Quotes

"Liv runs. Every morning, and some evenings too. Running has taken the place of thinking, of eating, sometimes of sleeping. She runs until her shins burn and her lungs feel as if they will explode...She plugs in her iPod earphones, closes the door of the block, rams her keys into the pocket of her shorts, and sets off at a pace. She lets her mind flood with the deafening thumping beat, dance music so relentless that it leaves no room for thought."

"To the Parcae" A single summer grant me, great powers, anda single autumn for fully ripened songthat, sated with the sweetness of myplaying, my heart may more willingly die.The soul that, living, did not attain its divineright cannot repose in the nether world.But once what I am bent on, what isholy, my poetry, is accomplished:Be welcome then, stillness of the shadows world!I shall be satisfied though my lyre will notaccompany me down there.

Alberto Alvaro Rios Quotes

"We live in secret citiesAnd we travel unmapped roads.We speak words between us that we recognizeBut which cannot be looked up.They are our words.They come from very far inside our mouths.You and I, we are the secret citizens of the cityInside us, and inside usThere go all the cars we have drivenAnd seen, there are all the peopleWe know and have known, thereAre all the places that areBut which used to be as well. This is whereThey went. They did not disappear.We each take a piece Through the eye and through the ear.Its loud inside us, in there, and when we speakIn the outside worldWe have to hope that some of that soundDoes not come out, that an armNot reach outIn place of the tongue."

Quotes About Smile And Nature

"Cambodian dust whipped up in the wind and stuck to my clothes like clay. I put a hand between my face and the sun and blinked Phnom Penn dust from my tired eyes. One idea, drink, beamed light in all directions across my dark consciousness.A slim lady walked toward me with a big smile and a bigger head. Her left hand rested on her waggling hips and her right hand rose above her head, limp-wristed, like shed just thrown a winning ball toward a basket and was leaving her hand in the shot position.

Quotes About Livrar

"Contudo, o mais corajoso dentre nós tem medo de si mesmo. A mutilação do selvagem tem a sua trágica sobrevivência na própria renúncia que corrompe as nossas vidas. Somos todos castigados por nossas renúncias. Cada impulso que tentamos aniquilar germina em nossa mente e nos envenena. Pecando, o corpo se liberta de seu pecado, porque a ação é um meio de purificação. Nada resta então a não ser a lembrança de um prazer ou a volúpia de um remorso. O único meio de livrar-se de uma tentação é ceder a ela. Se lhe resistirmos, as nossas almas ficarão doentes, desejando as coisas que se proibiram a si mesmas, e, além disso, sentirão desejo por aquilo que umas leis monstruosas fizeram monstruoso e ilegal. Já se disse que os grandes acontecimentos têm lugar no cérebro. É no cérebro e somente nele que têm tambem lugar os grandes pecados do mundo." - Author: Oscar Wilde
