[I Fell Asleep. But Later That Night I Woke Up. There Was Moonlight Coming Through The Window, And Shadows Of Tree Branches Fell Onto The Bed, Waving Gently In The Breeze.""And Then You Saw The Ghost?"James Laughed. "Dear Chap, The Branches WERE The Ghost. There Weren't Any Trees Within A Hundred Yards Of That House. They'd All Been Cut Down Years Before. I Saw The Ghost Of A Tree.]

"―Es solo una hora ―empezó a decir de nuevo, pero la rabia de las multitudes tiene efectos secundarios: enturbia la mente y ensordece a sus víctimas.

Nadie miró.―¡Mirad, Isabel Pantoja!Pero la rabia de las multitudes vuelve a las multitudes aficionadas al jazz.

Quotes About Opportunity And Doors

"Why say "yes"? "Yes" means opportunity. "Yes" makes the dots in your life appear. And if youre willing and open, you can connect these dots. You dont know where these dots are going to lead, and if you dont invest yourself fully, the dots wont connect. The lives you make with those dots always lead to interesting places. "No" closes doors. "Yes" kicks them wide open.....As long as youre able to say "yes", the opportunities keep coming, and with them, the adventures. Say "no" to fear and complacency. Keep saying "yes" and the journey will continue." - Author: William Shatner

Quotes About Decisive Action

"Speaking of the capitulation of Bulgaria, an event decisive to the outcome of the First World War and therefore to the end of a civilisation, Count Karolyi writes that while he was living through it he did not realise its importance, because "at that moment, that moment had not yet become that moment". The same is true in fiction for Fabrizio del Dongo, concerning the battle of Waterloo: while he is fighting it, it does not exist. In the pure present, the only dimension, however, in which we live, there is no history. At no single instant is there such a thing as the Fascist period or the October revolution, because in that fraction of a second there is only the mouth swallowing saliva, the movement of a hand, a glance at the window." - Author: Claudio Magris

Quotes About Smart Boards

"She was a very small girl with a face as lovely and fresh as her sons face—a very small girl. Most of the time she knew she was smarter and prettier than anyone else. But now and then a lonely fear would fall upon her so that she seemed surrounded by a tree-tall forest of enemies. Then every thought and word and look was aimed to hurt her, and she had no place to run and no place to hide. And she would cry in panic because there was no escape and no sanctuary. Then one day she was reading a book—brown, with a silver title, and the cloth was broken and the boards thick. It was Alice in Wonderland. But it was the bottle which said, "Drink me" that had changed her life." - Author: John Steinbeck

It runs through all our folklore, all human religions, all our literature--a racial conviction that when one human needs rescue, others should not count the price." - Author: Robert A. Heinlein

Quotes About Value Of Human Life

Quotes About Not Being His Only Girl

"Nick continued, unable to keep the smug smile form his lips. "Shall I tell you what I would do if I discovered Id been a royal ass and had lost the only woman Id ever really wanted?"Ralstons eyes narrowed on his brother. "I dont imagine I could stop you." Indeed not," Nick said, "I can tell you I wouldnt be standing in this godforsaken field in this godforsaken cold waiting for that idiot Oxford to shoot at me. I would walk away from this ridiculous, antiquated exercise, and I would find that womand tell her that I was a royal ass. And then I would do whatever it takes to convince her that she should take a chance on me despite my being a royal ass. And once thats done, I would get her, immediatley, to the nearest vicar and get the girl married. And with child." - Author: Sarah MacLean

Quotes About Ani

"I hope I am not for the killing, Anselmo was thinking. I think that after the war there will have to be some great penance done for the killing. If we no longer have religion after the war then I think there must be some form of civic penance organized that all may be cleansed from the killing or else we will never have a true and human basis for living. The killing is necessary, I know, but still the doing of it is very bad for a man and I think that, after all this is over and we have won the war, there must be a penance of some kind for the cleansing of us all." - Author: Ernest Hemingway
