Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes

"I shot an arrow into the air,It fell to earth, I knew not where;For, so swiftly it flew, the sightCould not follow it in its flight.I breathed a song into the air,It fell to earth, I knew not where;For who has sight so keen and strong,That it can follow the flight of song?Long, long afterward, in an oakI found the arrow, still unbroke;And the song, from beginning to end,I found again in the heart of a friend."

Sri Jibankrishna Or Diamond Quotes

"God is always eager to shower His grace on us. But our ‘Ego consciousness is always creates a barrier. When this ‘Ego consciousness will be eliminated He will manifest within ourselves. What happens in a dream? A man sleeps and then the ‘Ego consciousness does not exist and God manifests within him. Whatever you term then as God, Allah, Khoda, He will not be offended. Human beings have given him such nomenclature."

Terentianus Maurus Quotes

"Habent sua fata libelli. (Books have their own destinies.)"

Daniele Vare Quotes

"The verb to darn is explained in my pocket dictionary as follows: To mend by imitating the texture of the stuff, with thread and needle. But this definition does not correspond to the work accomplished by good Chinese housewives. When they mend a sock, they do not try to imitate the texture of the stuff. Their art makes no attempt at concealment: it even takes a certain pride in revealing itself."

Mark X Quotes

"Ah Buddha, you boastful charlatan. You may have learned nothing after 6 years of suffering, but then what of 7 years? What of 17? What might you have learned from a lifetime of pain? [...] From what I can tell, the wisest man in all these scriptures was the first person Buddha ever tried to teach - an Ajivika named Upaka. Buddha bragged to him of how he achieved nirvana, to which Upaka simply replied: "That may be so," and walked away."

Janice Mirikitani Quotes

"Autumn comeslike a buyer of cloth,her long fingerstouching,turning orange,yellow, brown.taking what she wants,stretchingthe bone taut air.Her skin crackles beneathour feet.I didnt think anyone wanted me,bruises pulled like a sweater aroundmy neck.We talkin the pore tightening air,branches bare,about the girl buried in the chillof prewinter.We show each otherour mutilated childrenin the guise of womenas autumn plucksat our lips.Each color, blue, black, ochrepopping like kisseson the rib lined flesh,the puberty soft things.And we musehow womenkeep bruiseshiddenbeneath deadleaves."

RC Sproul Quotes

"We want to be saved from our misery, but not from our sin. We want to sin without misery, just as the prodigal son wanted inheritance without the father. The foremost spiritual law of the physical universe is that this hope can never be realized. Sin always accompanies misery. There is no victimless crime, and all creation is subject to decay because of humanitys rebellion from God."

Quotes About Prawda

"Skoro tylko kot doprowadzony został do komisariatu, stwierdzono tam, że rzeczony obywatel intensywnie wonieje spirytusem, w związku z czym jego zeznań nie przyjęto za dobrą monetę. Tymczasem staruszka, dowiedziawszy się od sąsiadów, że jej kota przymknęli, popędziła do komisariatu i zdążyła na czas. Wystawiła kotu jak najpochlebniejsze świadectwo, zeznała, że zna go od pięciu lat, od małego kociaka, że ręczy za niego jak za samą siebie, udowodniła, że nigdy jeszcze się nie zdarzyło, by przyłapano go na czymś zdrożnym, oraz że nigdy nie wyjeżdżał do Moskwy. W Armawirze się urodził, tu się wychował, tu się kształcił w łowach na myszy.Kot został uwolniony z więzów i zwrócony właścicielce, acz, co prawda, ciężko doświadczony przez los – przekonał się bowiem na własnej skórze, co to znaczy fałszywe posądzenie i oszczerstwo." - Author: Mikhail Bulgakov

Quotes About Saying Sorry To Someone You Love

"What would he say to her, if he was going to speak truly? He didnt know. Talking was like throwing a baseball. You couldnt plan it out beforehand. You just had to let go and see what happened. You had to throw out words without knowing whether anyone woud catch them -- you had to throw out words you knew no one would catch. You had to send your words out where they werent yours anymore. It felt better to talk with a ball in your hand, it felt better to let the ball do the talking. But the world, the nonbaseball world, the world of love and sex and jobs and friends, was made of words." - Author: Chad Harbach

Quotes About Adventure And Nature

"The more formidable the contradiction between inexhaustible life-joy and inevitable fate, the greater the longing which reveals itself in the kingdom of poetry and in the self-created world of dreams hopes to banish the dark power of reality. The gods enjoy eternal youth, and the search for the means of securing it was one of the occupations of the heroes of mythology and the sages, as it was of real adventurers in the middle ages and more recent times. . . . But the fountain of youth has not been found, and can not be found if it is sought in any particular spot on the earth. Yet it is no fable, no dream-picture; it requires no adept to find it: it streams forth inexhaustible in all living nature." - Author: Ferdinand Cohn

"Why?" asked her companion. "Why do you love him when you ought not to?"Edna, with a motion or two, dragged herself on her knees before Mademoiselle Reisz, who took the glowing face between her two hands."Why? Because his hair is brown and grows away from his temples; because he opens and shuts his eyes, and his nose is a little out of drawing; because he has two lips and a square chin, and a little finger which he cant straighten from having played baseball too energetically in his youth. Because - ""Because you do, in short," laughed Mademoiselle." - Author: Kate Chopin
