Eckhart Tolle Quotes

Fuyumi Soryo Quotes

"The things that really shake the human soul arent beauty or kindness. Although such things are certainly moving, but those feelings dont last long. But... anger or sadness are different. They leave an undelible mark. Even after the wound heals... you can never forget the pain completely."

Joyce Hollyday Quotes

"I ponder the rhythms of letting go and embracing whatever is around the corner, trusting that the empty spaces will be filled. And knowing that sometimes community can happen only in the gaps where mystery resides."

Michael Law Quotes

"Face it: as much as youd like to be, youre not perfect. Mistakes will be made in both your freelance career and life. Instead of fearing mistakes, remind yourself that theres plenty to learn from them. If nothing else, youll learn that a mistake doesnt mean the end of the world. In fact, it might be the beginning of a new one."

Laurence Cosse Quotes

"Literature is a source of pleasure, he said, it is one of the rare inexhaustible joys in life, but its not only that. It must not be disassociated from reality. Everything is there. That is why I never use the word fiction. Every subtlety in life is material for a book. He insisted on the fact. Have you noticed, hed say, that Im talking about novels? Novels dont contain only exceptional situations, life or death choices, or major ordeals; there are also everyday difficulties, temptations, ordinary disappointments; and, in response, every human attitude, every type of behavior, from the finest to the most wretched. There are books where, as you read, you wonder: What would I have done? Its a question you have to ask yourself. Listen carefully: it is a way to learn to live. There are grown-ups who would say no, that literature is not life, that novels teach you nothing. They are wrong. Literature performs, instructs, it prepares you for life."

Jenny Uglow Quotes

"Before the battle they had been discussing whether there might be life after death, and Windham and Rochester had made a pact that if there was, the first to die would come back and tell the other. But, said Rochester, he [Windham] never did."

Wendy Wax Quotes

"She read novels. One book after another, sometimes at the rate of one a day, for a solid year. An acceptable form of escape that didnt leave a hangover."

Quotes About Relationships Not Working

"But I know I didnt love school for schools sake. I had never really been what people call an academic person, nor did I see myself becoming one. Instead, I took pleasure in the fact that my work existed in a social setting, one that was based on the promise of a brighter future. I knew that what I adored about school was that each of my assignments - readings, essays, or in-class presentations - was inseparable from my relationships [...] If I loved school at all, I loved it for what it provided me access to: bonds with people I grew to cherish. And nothing was better than working toward my dreams alongside people I loved who were doing the same." - Author: Liz Murray

Quotes About Guys Broken Heart

"When we say to people, I will pray for you, we make a very important commitment. The sad thing is that this remark often remains nothing but a well-meant expression of concern. But when we learn to descend with our mind into our heart, then all those who have become part of our lives are led into the healing presence of God and touched by him in the center of our being. We are speaking here about a mystery for which words are inadequate. It is the mystery that the heart, which is the center of our being, is transformed by God into his own heart, a heart large enough to embrace the entire universe. Through prayer we can carry in our heart all human pain and sorrow, all conflicts and agonies, all torture and war, all hunger, loneliness, and misery, not because of some great psychological or emotional capacity, but because Gods heart has become one with ours." - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen

Quotes About Fanny

"Tell it, Fanny. About the crowds, streets, buildings, lights, about the whirligig of loneliness, about the humpty-dumpty clutter of longings. And then explain about the summer parks and the white snow and the moon window in the sky. Throw in a poignantly ironical dissertation on life, on its uncharted aimlessness, and speak like Sherwood Anderson about the desire that stir in the heart. Speak like Remy de Gourmont and Dostoevsky and Stevie Crane, like Schopenhauer and Dreiser and Isaiah; speak like all the great questioners whose tongues have wagged and whose hearts have burned with questions. He will listen bewilderedly and, perhaps, only perhaps, understand for a moment the dumb pathos of your eyes." - Author: Ben Hecht

Quotes About Grindstone

"Oh! But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner!

Quotes About Adolescents

"Our young people think about nothing more than love affairs and pleasure. They spend more time attempting to seduce and dishonor young women than in thinking about their countrys welfare. Our women, in order to take care of the house and family of God, forget their own. Our men limit their activities to vice and their heroics to shameful acts. Children wake up in a fog of routine, adolescents live out their best years without ideals, and their elders are sterile, and only serve to corrupt our young people by their example." - Author: José Rizal
