[I Could Smack Her, Punch Her In The Face, But Then I See What She Can't Hide From Me. I've Seen It Before-the Desperation, The Agony, The Need To Find A Reason To Go On, And The Inability To Find It.]

"What does not kill you makes you stronger but sticks and stones can break your bones AND words do hurt"

Rush Limbaugh Quotes

"The worst of all of this is the lie that condoms really protect against AIDS. The condom failure rate can be as high as 20 percent. Would you get on a plane — or put your children on a plane — if one of five passengers would be killed on the flight? Well, the statistic holds for condoms, folks."

John Stilgoe Quotes

"The whole concatenation of wild and artificial things, the natural ecosystem as modified by people over the centuries, the build environment layered over layers, the eerie mix of sounds and smells and glimpses neither natural nor crafted- all of it is free for the taking, for the taking in. Take it, take it in, take in more every weekend, every day, and quickly it becomes the theater that intrigues, relaxes, fascinates, seduces, and above all expands any mind focused on it. Outside lies utterly ordinary space open to any casual explorer willing to find the extraordinary. Outside lies unprogrammed awareness that at times becomes directed serendipity. Outside lies magic."

Bei Dao Quotes

"the bouquetBetween me and the worldyou are a bay, a sailthe faithful ends of a ropeyou are a fountain, a wind, a shrill childhood cry.Between me and the worldyou are a picture frame, a windowa field covered in wildflowersyou are a breath, a bed,a night that keeps the stars company.Between me and the world, you are a calendar, a compassa ray of light that slips through the gloomyou are a biographical sketch, a book marka preface that comes at the end.between me and the worldyou are a gauze curtain, a mista lamp shining in my dreamsyou are a bamboo flute, a song without wordsa closed eyelid carved in stone.Between me and the worldyou are a chasm, a poolan abyss plunging downyou are a balustrade, a walla shields eternal pattern."

"Books, and only books, give me a chance to escape the realms of reality."

Sebastian Haffner Quotes

"A única coisa que várias vezes tirou Churchill do bom caminho foram paixões políticas e aventuras militares - jamais eróticas. Enquanto político, Churchill nunca foi um calculista frio, mas antes caloroso e apaixonado como poucos. É provável que isso acontecesse porque todo o calor, paixão e mesmo delicadeza que os outros consumiam nas suas vidas privadas acumulavam-se, no caso de Churchill, de forma concentrada e genuína na sua pessoa e acções públicas."

Marina Tsvetaeva Quotes

"The forbidden cabinet. The forbidden fruit. That fruit is—a volume, a huge blue-lilac volume with a gold inscription slantwise: Collected Works of A.S. Pushkin. I read the fat Pushkin in the cabinet with my nose in the book and on the shelf, almost in darkness and almost right up against it and even a little bit suffocated by his weight that came right into the throat, and almost blinded by the nearness of the tiny letters. I read Pushkin right into the chest and right into the brain."

Rodolphe Kasser Quotes

"Look, you have been told everything. Lift up your eyes and look at the cloud and the light within it and the stars surrounding it. And the star that leads the way is your star." So Judas lifted up his eyes and saw the luminous cloud, and he entered it."

Rius Quotes

"Todos los esfuerzos--que no son pocos--hechos por el gobierno, en materia educativa, se diluyen en el mar de porquería de los medios de comunicación monopolizados por la iniciativa privada."

"But anything worth doing is worth doing badly. Like being there by that summer ocean on the other side of the island while love was fading out of her, the stars burning so extravagantly those nights that anyone could tell you they would never last." - Author: Jack Gilbert

Quotes About Laying Down Thinking

"Lying on her side, the warm fire at her feet, Helens laughter died away as Lucas suddenly went from tuning to playing. It was like an orchestra in an instrument.He played with both hands-not one hand picking and the other holding down strings-but with both hands so that it sounded like more than one guitar was playing. Sometimes he hit the strings to make them hum like a harp, and sometimes he hit the body of the guitar like a drum to add bass and keep time. It was the most fascinating thing Helen had ever watched, like Lucas had a dozen voices in his head, all singing the same song, and hed figured a way to make them come out of ten fingers.Helen looked at his face and could tell why he loved it. It was like thinking for him, only this was a puzzle that he could share with her as he solved it.Hed walked into her head when hed come to her world. And shed walked into his when she finally heard him play.It was heaven." - Author: Josephine Angelini

Quotes About Managing Pain

"I lit a fire and sat there in my rocking chair. We lit a candle for him. It was as simple as that. I knew that what I had done may have been a catalyst in Dannys death, but I also knew that there was really nothing else I could have done. I can never really lose that feeling. I wasnt guilty, but I felt responsible in a way. Its part of what I do. Managing the band and taking care of the music is very painful at times. Its a sad story. A moment I will never forget, years I can never replace, music the world will never hear, all gone in the turning of a second." - Author: Neil Young

Quotes About Rainy Nights

"My bed was pushed up hard against the wall just below the window. I loved to sleep with the windows open. Rainy nights were the best of all: I would open my windows and put my head on my pillow and close my eyes and feel the wind on my face and listen to the trees sway and creak. There would be raindrops blown onto my face, too, if I was lucky, and I would imagine that I was in my boat on the ocean and that it was swaying with the swell of the sea. I did not imagine that I was a pirate, or that I was going anywhere. I was just on my boat." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Going Back To Your Old Ways

"Inigo was in despair.Hard to find on the map (this was after maps) not because cartographers didnt know of its existence, but because when they visited to measure its precise dimensions, they became so depressed they began to drink and question everything, most notably why anyone would want to be something as stupid as a cartographer. It required constant travel, no one ever knew your name, and, most of all, why bother? There grew up, then, a gentlemans agreement among mapmakers of the period to keep the place as secret as possible, lest tourists flock there and die. (Should you insist on paying a visit, its closer to the Baltic States than most places.)" - Author: William Goldman

Quotes About Bridge Of Love

"You who never arrived in my arms, Beloved, who were lost from the start, I dont even know what songs would please you. I have given up trying to recognize you in the surging wave of the next moment. All the immense images in me -- the far-off, deeply-felt landscape, cities, towers, and bridges, and un-suspected turns in the path, and those powerful lands that were once pulsing with the life of the gods-- all rise within me to mean you, who forever elude me. You, Beloved, who are all the gardens I have ever gazed at, longing. An open window in a country house-- , and you almost stepped out, pensive, to meet me. Streets that I chanced upon,-- you had just walked down them and vanished. And sometimes, in a shop, the mirrors were still dizzy with your presence and, startled, gave back my too-sudden image. Who knows? Perhaps the same bird echoed through both of us yesterday, separate, in the evening..." - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
