[I Don't Have A Pet, But I Dream Of Someday Getting A Pug Dog Whom I Will Name Croque Monsieur So That I May Alternate Between Calling Him Croque, Monsieur Or His Full Name: Croque Monsieur. I'll More Than Likely Only Use His First And Last Name Most Often When He's Been Bad.]

"Too often, the Democratic Party has been split between its grass-roots activists on one side and its elected officials and party leaders on the other. Its important to remember: We need both wings to fly."

William Bernbach Quotes

"Nobody counts the number of ads you run; they just remember the impression you make."

Jim Harrison Quotes

"Perhaps swimming was dancing under the water, he thought. To swim under lily pads seeing their green slender stalks wavering as you passed, to swim under upraised logs past schools of sunfish and bluegills, to swim through reed beds past wriggling water snakes and miniature turtles, to swim in small lakes, big lakes, Lake Michigan, to swim in small farm ponds, creeks, rivers, giant rivers where one was swept along easefully by the current, to swim naked alone at night when you were nineteen and so alone you felt like you were choking every waking moment, having left home for reasons more hormonal than rational; reasons having to do with the abstraction of the future and ones questionable place in the world of the future, an absurdity not the less harsh for being so widespread."

"Belgium thinks that however great the peril which a country might have to undergo under the system which we seek to establish here, that country ought to do its duty."

Raymond Sokolov Quotes

"To the chefs who pioneered the nouvelle cuisine in France, the ancienne cuisine they were rebelling against looked timeless, primordial, old as the hills. But the cookbook record proves that the haute cuisine codified early in this century by Escoffier barely goes back to Napoleons time. Before that, French food is not recognizable as French to modern eyes. Europes menu before 1700 was completely different from its menu after 1800, when national cuisines arose along with modern nations and national cultures."

Quotes About Falling For Someone Quickly

"Love is fragile at best and often a burden or something that blinds us. Its fodder for poets and song writers and they build it into something beyond human capacity. Falling in love means enrolling yourself in the school of disappointment. Being human means failing each other often, and no two people fail each other more than two people who pledge to do things for each other that theyll never do because they are just incapable of it...Thats why art is enduring. The look of love or hope, or the look of compassion, bravery, whatever, is captured forever. We spend our lives trying to get someone to be as enduring as a painting or a sculpture and we cant because feelings crumble as quickly as the flesh." - Author: V.C. Andrews

Quotes About Animal Lovers

"Every animal is a tradition, and together they are a vast part of our heritage as human beings. No animal completely lacks humanity, yet no person is ever completely human. By ourselves, we people are simply balls of protoplasm. We merge with animals through magic, metaphor, or fantasy, growing their fangs and putting on their feathers. Then we become funny or tragic; we can be loved, hated, pitied, and admired. For us, animals are all the strange, beautiful, pitiable, and frightening things that they have ever been: gods, slaves, totems, sages, tricksters, devils, clowns, companions, lovers, and far more." - Author: Boria Sax

Quotes About Need Some Space

"As I wandered around the room, with Sachiko by my side, I began to think how much we need space in those we love, space enough to accommodate growth and possibility. Knowledge must leave room for mystery; intimacy, taken too far, was the death of imagination. Keeping some little distance from her was, I thought, a way of keeping an open space, a silence for the imagination to fill."At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things," Thoreau had written, "we require that all things be mysterious and unexplainable." - Author: Pico Iyer

Quotes About Trauma In Love

"Rather than a tale of greed, the history of luxury could more accurately be read as a record of emotional trauma. It is the legacy of those who have felt pressured by the disdain of others to add an extraordinary amount to their bare selves in order to signal that they too may lay a claim to love." - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About Perseverance For Students

"It was a harder days journey than yesterdays, for there were long and weary hills to climb; and in journeys, as in life, it is a great deal easier to go down hill than up. However, they kept on, with unabated perseverance, and the hill has not yet lifted its face to heaven that perseverance will not gain the summit of at last." - Author: Charles Dickens

Quotes About Watkin

"No, Mo," Miss Watkins said, turning to Nesta who was crying with laughter. "Nesta Williams, seeing as you clearly find it so funny. What do you think the name of God might be?""Er, not sure," said Nesta, looking caught out. "What do you think?""I dont think," said Miss Watkins."I know.""I dont think I know either," giggled Nesta. The whole class got detention, but it was worth it. I felt like id spent the whole morning laughing my head offWe never did get to know what Gods name was." - Author: Cathy Hopkins

Quotes About Biton

"They yoked themselves to a car and drew her all the long way through dust and heat. Everyone admired their filial piety when they arrived and the proud and happy mother standing before the statue prayed that Hera would reward them by giving them the best gift in her power. As she finished her prayer the two lads sank to the ground. They were smiling and they looked as if they were peacefully asleep but they were dead. (Biton and Cleobis)" - Author: Edith Hamilton

Quotes About The Armour Of God

"We are up against the unseen power that controls this dark world and the spiritual agents are from the very headquarters of evil. Therefore, we must wear the "whole armour of God," that we may be able to resist evil in its day of power, and that even when we have fought to a standstill, we may still stand our ground." - Author: Corrie ten Boom

Quotes About Intense Passion

"Jesus expressed intense anger toward those who where immoral, such as the self-righteous Pharisees, but he never suggested that they were demonized. Toward the demonized, however, he never expressed anger; rather he exhibited only compassion. As Langton notes, "Pity rather than anger characterizes the attitude of Jesus toward the possessed...He treats them as if they were the victims of an involuntary possession." Indeed, he treats them as though they are casualties of war. For, in his view, this is precisely what they are." - Author: Gregory A. Boyd
