Hermione Ranfurly Quotes

"14 July 1942—Jerusalem - ...A magnificent parcel, covered in tape and seals, arrived for me from India. Inside were two pairs of old fashioned corsets with bones and laces. They were sent by HRH The Duke of Gloucester. Nick and I had an argument as to how one should thank one of the Royal Family for a present of corsets. Whichever way we put it looked disrespectful. Finally we sent a telegram saying: ‘Reinforcements received. Positions now held. Most grateful thanks."

Patrik Ouednik Quotes

"Dyk měl ve zvyku pronášet sentence z vlastního kadlubu, které krášlil podvodnými, zpravidla biblickými zdroji. Už dávno pochopil, že v Česku se za nejzazší projev inteligence považuje opakování toho, co už někdo někdy řekl. Kdysi, v dobách, kdy sbíral po parcích brouky, se ke svým sentencím hlásil („…jak já vždycky říkám") a nikdy se mu nedostalo jiné reakce než rozpačitého úsměvu. Jednou ho napadlo dodat: „Kniha Rút, 4,6" – a hle, pohledy vůkol zazářily, ženské uznale, mužské závistivě. Od té doby tak činil pokaždé. „Noc je předzvěstí jitra. Leviticus 2, 10," pravil zvedaje se ze židle a opouštěje podnikový večírek. „Kopej v písku a nalezneš sebe sama. Kazatel 17, 5," nabádal kolegyni v práci, na niž si dělal zálusk. „Otec mocným hlasem volá, běda, syn jej neslyší. Gilgameš, zpěv třetí," utěšoval souseda, který si stěžoval na chování pubescentního potomka."

Kathy Dunnehoff Quotes

"No, it wasnt aging that made someone brittle, it was disappointment that did. It was allowing the world to make you smaller and smaller until you couldnt hold yourself upright anymore. That, that made a woman break."

Quotes About Over Achievers

"The text says that when the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, _he_ loved her. God was saying, I am the real bridegroom. I am the husband of the husbandless. I am the father of the fatherless. This is the God who saves by grace. The gods of moralistic religions favor the successful and the overachievers. THe are the ones who climb the moral ladder up to heaven. But the God of the Bible is the one who comes down into this world to accomplish a salvation and give us a grace we could never attain ourselves." - Author: Timothy Keller

Not this the world, Nor these the universes, they the universes, Purport and end, ever the permanent life of life, Eidolons, eidolons..." - Author: Walt Whitman
