"What was I, then? I hadntbecome a European either, not in France and certainly not inEngland. So what were you, Ricardito? Maybe what Mrs. Richardsoncalled me in her fits of temper: a little pissant, nothing but aninterpreter, somebody, as my colleague Salomon Toledano liked todefine us, who is only when he isnt, a hominid who exists when hestops being what he is so that what other people think and say canpass through him more easily."

Quotes About Pledging

"Kenny is a drug, and Ive just had the best hit of my life. Im not losing this addiction. Im in, all the way, pledging my voluntarily servitude to the gateway of my desire. Kenny was the freedom I was longing for. Love and all this wild pent up desire, proved to be the combination that set me free. But only Kenny had the power to unleash me. She scrubbed the impurity from my life and washed clean the world, so I could see it stark and clear for the very first time. Kenny perfumed my existence with her regal charm, her sovereign splendor. Kenny is in everyway sublime." - Author: Addison Moore

Quotes About Shells

"You are being suffocated by tradition... Why dont you say, I am going to build a life for myself, for my time, and make it a work of art?

Quotes About Funny Eyeballs

"But you can always justify killing animals on the grounds that you want to eat them, or wear them, or that they smell bad, look funny, bother you, threaten you, and have the bad luck of being in your way. What about killing humans? Well aside from a few die-hard individualists on the fringe, the general consensus among people these days seems to be that eating and wearing other people is just not on. Wearing a suit which costs as much as a farmer will make in his lifetime is acceptable, but actually putting his eyeballs on a string and letting them dangle above tastefully exposed cleavage is bad form." - Author: Mohsin Hamid

Quotes About Happy Life Without Him

"If a man prefers nothing I can give him nothing. But nearly all people I have ever met in this western society in which I live would agree to the general proposition that we need this life of practical romance; the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure. We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome. We need to be happy in this wonderland without once being merely comfortable. It is this achievement of my creed that I shall chiefly pursue in these pages." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Idiot Proof

"There are now a million templates anddecision trees and practice guidelines,the underlying intent of which is tomake medical care idiot-proof. Anyonewith half a brain can check off boxes,and the pattern of the checked boxestells you what the patient has and whatto do about it. The problem with templates and clinical guidelines is that patients without asthma get crammed into asthma templates. Providers are rewarded financially and otherwise for small lies that make the templates and guidelines come out right." - Author: Testy McTesterson

Quotes About Balance In Love

"As she was working out the calculations in her head, she forgot to really worry about all the physical things that were getting in the way--the balancing of the bow, the aiming, the fear she wasnt going to get it right--and suddenly it all just clicked. She felt it come into sudden, sharp focus, like a spotlight had suddenly focused on her, and she let go of the arrow. That instant, she knew it would hit the target. She let the bow rock gracefully forward on the balance point, watching the arrow, and it smacked into the exact center of her crudely drawn paper circle. Physics. She loved physics. Shane arrived just as she put the arrow into the center, and slowed down, staring from the target to Claire, standing straight and tall, bow still held loosely in one hand and ready to shoot again. "You look so hot right now," he said." - Author: Rachel Caine

Quotes About Pout

"Yet this is life. For hardly have we mortals by long toilings extracted from this worlds vast bulk its small but valuable sperm; and then, with weary patience, cleansed ourselves from its defilements, and learned to live here in clean tabernacles of the soul; hardly is this done, when-There she blows!-the ghost is spouted up, and away we sail to fight some other world, and go through young lifes old routine again." - Author: Herman Melville
