Quotes About Being Mugged

"Prior to being mugged I did not feel I had to carry a gun. However, I knew how to shoot a gun very proficiently. As a boy, I used to play cowboys and Indians all the time." - Author: Bernhard Goetz

Quotes About Painted Sky

"The office Halloween party was at the Royalton last week and I went as a mass murderer, complete with a sign painted on my back that read MASS MURDERER (which was decidedly lighter than the sandwich board I had constructed earlier that day that read DRILLER KILLER), and beneath those two words I had written in blood Yep, thats me and the suit was also covered with blood, some of it fake, most of it real. In one fist I clenched a hank of Victoria Bells hair, and pinned next to my boutonniere (a small white rose) was a finger bone Id boiled the flesh off of. As elaborate as my costume was, Craig McDermott still managed to win first place in the competition. He came as Ivan Boesky, which I thought was unfair since a lot of people thought Id gone as Michael Milken last year. The Patty Winters Show this morning was about Home Abortion Kits." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Tomboy

"The charitable thing to do would be to make myself as homely looking as possible, which would probably make it much easier on him, but I didnt want his parting memories of me to be that I was a frumpy mess dressed in tomboy clothes.I do have some feminine pride after all. I still want him to squirm. At least a little." - Author: Colleen Houck

Quotes About Taunting

"So Im all, "Owned! Bee-yatch! Dog fucking owned you!" Doing a minor booty dance of ownage, perhaps, in retrospect, a bit prematurely. (I believe hip-hop to be the apprpriate language for taunting, at least until I learn French.)" - Author: Christopher Moore

Quotes About Massacre

"We feel sorry for the poor people who died, one soldier said. But how are we to know who is a terrorist and who isnt? said another. They mingle with the people, with the civilians, and we cannot question each one of them individually. It is either them or ourselves. But in war who has time for pity? We see our men blown up in landmines. The flesh has to be scraped off the Claymores. They are shot by snipers. Reprisals and massacres take place - are these happenings not inevitable in a time of war? Killings will go on. The civilians will always suffer." - Author: Jean Arasanayagam

Quotes About Mean Guys

"As a kid, Vix had had some warped idea that grownup meant having a job and living on your own. It meant no one could tell you what to eat, or what to wear, or how to behave. It meant that it was okay to have sex with guys. What a joke!" - Author: Judy Blume

Quotes About Crowe

"Not your weapons," Agrona sneered. "Your artifacts. Sigyns bow. The Horn of Roland. The Swords of Ruslan. And, of course, Vic.""Well, naturally," the sword crowed, his voice swelling with pride. "I do put the art in artefact."I looked down on him. "Really?" I whispered. "Youre really going to talk about how awesome you are at a time like this?""Certainly," Vic said. "Why wouldnt I?" - Author: Jennifer Estep

Quotes About Tab

"And here, right at the start, one encounters a new difficulty. For the task of reestablishing the notion of Gods authority is obstructed not only by the depreciation of authority itself, but also by a false, pre-established picture of God- found even within the church. Certainly, the church has preserved the concept of a loving God, a merciful God, a compassionate God. But have Christians generally themselves any vivid sense of Gods power and dominion? Do we, when we worship God, or when we reflect on His nature, catch a clear echo of His resounding and indomitable majesty?... It cannot be denied that this is the God we are supposed to worship- not just a companionable God who is to be sidled up to and nestled against, but and awesome God before whom the worshipper prostrates himself, a wrathful God whose raised right arm can shake the universe." - Author: Harry Blamires

Quotes About The Shot Heard Round The World

"But Bachmanns efforts to strut her IQ were undermined by gaffes galore. In New Hampshire, she hailed the state for being "where the shot was heard round the world in Lexington and Concord." (That blast emanated from Massachusetts.) On June 27, the day of her official announcement in her hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, Bachmann proclaimed in a Fox News interview that "John Wayne was from Waterloo." (Wayne was in fact from Winterset, Iowa; serial killer John Wayne Gacy was from Waterloo.) From now on, her son Lucas razzed his mother, "you cant say George Washington was the first president unless we Google that shit first." - Author: Mark Halperin

Quotes About Roman Senate

"The unwholesome-looking little moral agent of destruction exulted silently in the possession of personal prestige, keeping in check this man armed with the defensive mandate of a menaced society. More fortunate than Caligula, who wished that the Roman Senate had only one head for the better satisfaction of his cruel lust, he beheld in that one man all the forces he had set at defiance: the force of law, property, oppression, and injustice. He beheld all his enemies and fearlessly confronted them all in a supreme satisfaction of his vanity. They stood perplexed before him as if before a dreadful portent. He gloated inwardly over the chance of this meeting affirming his superiority over all the multitude of mankind." - Author: Joseph Conrad
