Diane Farr Quotes

"I look a little bit like Barbie and talk a little bit like Ken. Its easier for me to sit in the middle of the boys club than to be surrounded by people concerned about getting their hair and nails done."

Richard Powers Quotes

"He will love this music to death. In a few more years, hell snort at its sentiment and mock its stirring progressions. Once youve loved like that, the only safe haven is resentment."

Bree LG15 Quotes

"A person can become so comfortable with everything that they dont know, that they just stop asking questions altogether."

"Once Miramax gets involved, if they like your movie, theres a big machine that gets involved."

Robert Hass Twentieth Century Pleasures Prose On Poetry Quotes

"Images are not quite ideas, they are stiller than that, with less implication outside themselves. And they are not myth, they do not have the explanatory power; they are nearer to pure story. Nor are they always metaphors; they do not say this is that, they say this is."

Jiro Shirasu Quotes

"Todays politicians are like policemen on traffic duty. They are just dealing with traffic right in front of them. Yet they want to be the Superintendent based on that alone. The politicians and the bigwigs in finance have no ambition. There are too many who confuse the power that they got by their position as their own ability."

Matthew Tobin Anderson Quotes

"I write for teens partially to work out whatever it was that I needed to from my own teenage years."

Margaret D McGee Quotes

"In my return to church, I had learned the hard way to avoid assumptions about other peoples faith. For one thing, people kept surprising me. If I listened carefully to them, my conjectures about what they thought usually turned out to be wrong. For another thing, I was insecure enough about my own faith, such as it was, to resent other people telling me what they thought I believed and why they thought I believed it. So I tried to hear what my friends say about joining their loved ones after death without assuming I knew exactly what they meant."

Quotes About Tristan And Isolde

"Passion doesnt count the cost. Pascal said that the heart has its reasons that reason takes no account of. If he meant what I think, he meant that when passion seizes the heart it invents reasons that seem not only plausible but conclusive to prove that the world is well lost for love. It convinces you that honour is well sacrificed and that shame is a cheap price to pay. Passion is destructive. It destroyed Antony and Cleopatra, Tristan and Isolde, Parnell and Kitty OShea. And if it doesnt destroy it dies. It may be then that one is faced with the desolation of knowing that one has wasted the years of ones life, that ones brought disgrace upon oneself, endured the frightful pang of jealousy, swallowed every bitter mortification, that ones expended all ones tenderness, poured out all the riches of ones soul on a poor drab, a fool, a peg on which one hung ones dreams, who wasnt worth a stick of chewing gum." - Author: W. Somerset Maugham

Quotes About Being Deeply Rooted

"If we were taught to cook as we are taught to walk, encouraged first to feel for pebbles with our toes, then to wobble forward and fall, then had our hands firmly tugged on so we would try again, we would learn that being good at it relies on something deeply rooted, akin to walking, to get good at which we need only guidance, senses, and a little faith. We arent often taught to cook like that, so when we watch people cook naturally, in what looks like an agreement between cook and cooked, we think that they were born with an ability to simply know that an egg is done, that the fish needs flipping, and that the soup needs salt. Instinct, whether on the ground or in the kitchen, is not a destination but a path." - Author: Tamar Adler

Quotes About Bible Miscarriage

"Slowly, God is opening my eyes to needs all around me. In Scripture, God revisits this issue of caring for the poor- an echo that repeats itself from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible acknowledges that the poor will always be part of society, but God takes on their cause. The Mosaic law of the Old Testament is filled with regulations to prevent and eliminate poverty. The poor were given the right to glean- to take produce from the unharvested edges of the fields, a portion of the tithes, and a daily wage. The law prevented permanent slavery by releasing Jewish bondsmen and women on the sabbatical and Jubilee year and forbade charging interest on loans. In one of his most tender acts, God made sure that the poor- the aliens, widows, and orphans- were all invited to the feasts." - Author: Margaret Feinberg

Quotes About Conciencia

"Ambos siguieron atentos a los rumores crecientes sobre la gravedad de la peste, y aun contra sus deseos tuvieron que conversar otra vez sobre asuntos que les eran comunes, como en los tiempos en que se odiaban menos. Para él era claro. Siempre creyó que amaba a la hija, pero el miedo al mal de rabia lo obligaba a confesarse que se engañaba a sí mismo por comodidad. Bernarda, en cambio, no se lo preguntó siquiera, pues tenía plena conciencia de no amarla ni de ser amada por ella, y ambas cosas le parecían justas. Mucho del odio que ambos sentían por la niña era por lo que ella tenía del uno y del otro. Sin embargo, Bernarda estaba dispuesta a hacer la farsa de las lágrimas y a guardar un luto de madre." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Acres

"Rich Little Poor Girl: Alexandra Aldrich grew up being told that she lived in a "childs paradise": a largely deserted, 43-room, 200-year-old house on 420 acres in the Hudson River Valley, complete with woods, animals, interesting outbuildings and bohemian tenants who made giant puppets and staged elaborate pageants. The story it tells is so extraordinary, and Aldrichs tone is so baldly honest, that the readers attention will not flag." - Author: Laura Miller for Salon

Quotes About Socialised

"The principal advantages of living in your stations section house is that it is cheap, close to work and its not your parents flat. The disadvantages are that youre sharing your accommodation with people too weakly socialised to live with normal human beings, and who habitually wear heavy boots. The weak socialisation makes opening the fridge an exciting adventure in microbiology, and the boots mean that every shift change sounds like an avalanche." - Author: Ben Aaronovitch

Quotes About Obligation And Love

"Because you have no memory for things that happened ten or twenty years ago, youre still mouthing the same nonsense as two thousand years ago. Worse, you cling with might and main to such absurdities as race, class, nation, and the obligation to observe a religion and repress your love." - Author: Wilhelm Reich
