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.]

George H Smith Quotes

"When conformity is required, as it is in Christianity, what are the results? To begin with, the sacrifice of truth inevitably follows. One can be committed to conformity or one can be committed to truth, but not both. The pursuit of truth requires the unrestricted use of ones mind--the moral freedom to question, to examine evidence, to consider opposing viewpoints, to criticize, to accept as true only that which can be demonstrated--regardless whether ones conclusions conform to a particular creed."

Quotes About Returning

"Readers will recall that the little evidence collected seemed to point to the strange and confusing figure of an unidentified Air Force pilot whose body was washed ashore on a beach near Dieppe three months later. Other traces of his ‘mortal remains were found in a number of unexpected places: in a footnote to a paper on some unusual aspects of schizophrenia published thirty years earlier in a since defunct psychiatric journal; in the pilot for an unpurchased TV thriller, ‘Lieutenant 70; and on the record labels of a pop singer known as The Him — to instance only a few.

Quotes About Clear Blue Water

"In the late summer of that year we lived in a house in a village that looked across the river and the plain to the mountains. In the bed of the river there were pebbles and boulders, dry and white in the sun, and the water was clear and swiftly moving and blue in the channels. Troops went by the house and down the road and the dust they raised powdered the leaves of the trees. The trunks of the trees too were dusty and the leaves fell early that year and we saw the troops marching along the road and the dust rising and leaves, stirred by the breeze, falling and the soldiers marching and afterward the road bare and white except for the leaves." - Author: Ernest Hemingway
