Quotes About Stability In Life

"Nothing had been the same; and this slight, all-pervading instability, had given her greater pain than if all had been too entirely changed for her to recognise it. I begin to understand now what heaven must be-and, oh! the grandeur and repose of the words-"The same yesterday, to-day, and for ever." Everlasting! "From everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God." That sky above me looks as though it could not change, and yet it will. I am so tired-so tired of being whirled on through all these phases of my life, in which nothing abides by me, no creature, no place; it is like the circle in which the victims of earthly passion eddy continually. I am in the mood in which women of another religion take the veil. I seek heavenly steadfastness in earthy monotony." - Author: Elizabeth Gaskell

Quotes About Not Agreeing With Family

"I live on an island called Ireland where most of the music is shite. I grew up listening to "Danny Boy"; I grew up hating Danny Boy, and all his siblings and his granny. "The pipes, the pipes are caw-haw-hawing." Anything with pipes or fiddles or even - forgive me, Paul - banjos, I detested. Songs of loss, of love, of going across the sea; songs of defiance and rebellion - I vomited on all of them." - Author: Roddy Doyle

Quotes About Allowing Change

"Its definitely difficult being a woman and growing up a girl. When youre graceful, people say you lack personality; when youre serene, people say youre boring; when youre confident, people say youre arrogant; when youre feminine, people say youre too girly; and when you climb trees, people say youre too much of a tomboy! As a woman, you really need to develop a very strong sense of self and the earlier you can do that, the better! You have to be all the things that you are, without allowing other peoples ignorance change you! I realized that they dont know what grace is, they cant identify serenity, they have inferiority complexes, they are incapable of being feminine, and they dont know how to climb trees!" - Author: C.

Quotes About Tea Kettles

"What about a teakettle? What if the spout opened and closed when the steam came out, so it would become a mouth, and it could whistle pretty melodies, or do Shakespeare, or just crack up with me? I could invent a teakettle that reads in Dads voice, so I could fall asleep, or maybe a set of kettles that sings the chorus of "Yellow Submarine," which is a song by the Beatles, who I love, because entomology is one of my raisons detre, which is a French expression that I know." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About Human Euthanasia

"If man is not made in the image of God, nothing then stands in the way of inhumanity. There is no good reason why mankind should be perceived as special. Human life is cheapened. We can see this in many of the major issues being debated in our society today: abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, the increase of child abuse and violence of all kinds, pornography ... , the routine torture of political prisoners in many parts of the world, the crime explosion, and the random violence which surrounds us." - Author: Francis August Schaeffer

Quotes About Ideia

"Porque é o máximo ser uma ideia que agrada a todos. Mas eu nunca poderia ser aquela ideia para mim, não totalmente." - Author: John Green

Quotes About Salt March

"The stuff of nightmare is their plain bread. They butter it with pain. They set their clocks by deathwatch beetles, and thrive the centuries. They were the men with the leather-ribbon whips who sweated up the Pyramids seasoning it with other peoples salt and other peoples cracked hearts. They coursed Europe on the White Horses of the Plague. They whispered to Caesar that he was mortal, then sold daggers at half-price in the grand March sale. Some must have been lazing clowns, foot props for emperors, princes, and epileptic popes. Then out on the road, Gypsies in time, their populations grew as the world grew, spread, and there was more delicious variety of pain to thrive on. The train put wheels under them and here they run down the log road out of the Gothic and baroque; look at their wagons and coaches, the carving like medieval shrines, all of it stuff once drawn by horses, mules, or, maybe, men." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Strata

"Daca ea ar fi fost o femeie buna si nobila, inzestrata cu forta, blandete pasiune si bun-simt, as fi purtat o singura lupta decisiva cu doi tigri-gelozia si disperarea; si apoi, cu inima smulsa din piept si sfasiata, as fi admirat-o..i-as fi recunoscut perfectiunea si as fi ramas tacuta pentru tot restul vietii mele; si cu cat mai impecabila ar fi fost superioritatea ei, cu atat mai adanca ar fi fost admiratia mea si cu atat mai adanca linistea mea. Dar asa cum stau de fapt lucrurile, sa privesc eforturile ei de a-l seduce, sa fiu martora esecului lor repetat, iar ea sa nu fie constienta de acest esec, inchipuindu-si, in vanitatea ei, ca fiecare sageata lansata isi nimerea tinta si falindu-se plina de ea cu cu succesul obtinut, in timp ce trufia si multumirea ei de sine indeparta tot mai mult ceea ce dorea ea sa atraga- sa vad toate acestea insemna sa ma aflu in aceslasi timp intr-o provocare permanenta si o constrangere nemiloasa" - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About Chipmunks

"When the cold comes to New England it arrives in sheets of sleet and ice. In December, the wind wraps itself around bare trees and twists in between husbands and wives asleep in their beds. It shakes the shingles from the roofs and sifts through cracks in the plaster. The only green things left are the holly bushes and the old boxwood hedges in the village, and these are often painted white with snow. Chipmunks and weasels come to nest in basements and barns; owls find their way into attics. At night,the dark is blue and bluer still, as sapphire of night." - Author: Alice Hoffman

Quotes About Retirement

"We go to school so that when we grow up we can make lots of money, and we make lots of money so we can provide for our children, and we have children to provide for our retirement (because we dont have any money left)." - Author: R.M. ArceJaeger
