Patrick Harpur Quotes

"What you knew in your childhood is true; the Otherworld of magic and enchantment is real, sometimes terribly real - and certainly more real than the factual reality which our culture has built up, brick by brick, to shut out colour and light and prevent us from flying."

1 Kings 19 1113 Quotes

"11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?"

Ally Condie Quotes

"think of him risking everything each time he slips one napkin into his pocket. All these years hes been so careful, but now hes willing to take a chance. Because hes found someone who wants to know. Someone he wants to tell."

Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

"Whats not so great is that all this technology is destroying our social skills. Not only have we given up on writing letters to each other, we barely even talk to each other. People have become so accustomed to texting that theyre actually startled when the phone rings. Its like we suddenly all have Batphones. If it rings, there must be danger. Now we answer, "What happened? Is someone tied up in the old sawmill?""No, its Becky. I just called to say hi.""Well you scared me half to death. You cant just pick up the phone and try to talk to me like that. Dont the tips of your fingers work?"

Paul Erdos Quotes

A Philip Randolph Quotes

"At the banquet table of nature, there are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can hold. If you cant take anything, you wont get anything, and if you cant hold anything, you wont keep anything. And you cant take anything without organization."

Davidji Quotes

"When we surrender, we allow the universe to work its magic; we say yes to infinite possibilities; we trust that things will work out as they are meant to; and we give ourselves permission to let go of the outcome. This can be liberating, intimidating, blissful, scary, and a swirl of so many other emotions. But in the end, if we are true to our heart, life unfolds with magnificence…and we get to celebrate"

Natalie Dykstra Quotes

"There, Clover found the "gardens and great trees and old cottages...so beautiful" that seeing them exhausted her. It was as if, she joked with her husband, "this English world is a huge stage-play got up only to amuse Americans. It is obviously unreal, eccentric, and taken out of novels."

Quotes About Conflicts Of Interest

"A common strand appeared to unite these conflicts, and that was the advancement of a small coteries concept of American interests in the guise of the fight against terrorism, which was defined to refer only to the organized and politically motivated killing of civilians by killers not wearing the uniforms of soldiers. I recognized that if this was to be the single most important priority of our species, then the lives of those of us who lived in lands in which such killers also lived had no meaning except as collateral damage. This, I reasoned, was why America felt justified in bringing so many deaths to Afghanistan and Iraq, and why America felt justified in risking so many more deaths by tacitly using India to pressure Pakistan." - Author: Mohsin Hamid

Quotes About To Be Continued

"...a new day was starting, the things of the garden were not concerned with our troubles. A blackbird ran across the rose-garden to the lawns in swift, short rushes, stopping now and again to stab at the earth with his yellow beak. A thrush, too, went about his business, and two stout, little wagtails, following one another, and a little cluster of twittering sparrows. A gull poised himself high in the air, silent and alone, and then spread his wings wide and swooped beyond the lawns to the woods and the Happy Valley. These things continued, our worries and anxieties had no power to alter them." - Author: Daphne du Maurier

Quotes About Ips

"And maybe one winter it will get too cold and Ill forget about the summers we once shared. My family portrait mightfold in too, producing the same horrific effect as Jeremys: that I, all along, had another sibling who eclipsed and became me—a prosperous sibling, an imposturous sibling, who outgrew a sense of time and place in which the three of us were everything to one another. Then only my blood in the sea could unfold and lead me back out of the origami." - Author: Nicholaus Patnaude
