Anne Thomas Quotes

"Ive been taking it easy on you, kid, can tell youre having fun. But its all sensation to you so far. I havent pushed you, taken you out of yourself, looked for that place inside where you give yourself to your top. Sometimes pleasure can take a bottom there, but more often its pain that does."

Quotes About Netas

"Eis a sublime estupidez do mundo; quando nossa fortuna está abalada - muitas vezes pelos excessos de nossos próprios atos - culpamos o sol, a lua e as estrelas pelos nossos desastres; como se fôssemos canalhas por necessidade, idiotas por influência celeste; escroques, ladrões e traidores por comando do zodíaco; bêbados, mentirosos e adúlteros por forçada obediência a determinações dos planetas; como se toda a perversidade que há em nós fosse pura instigação divina. É a admirável desculpa do homem devasso - responsabiliza uma estrela por sua devassidão. Meu pai se entendeu com minha mãe sob a Cauda do Dragão e vim ao mundo sob a Ursa Maior; portanto devo ser lascivo e perverso. Bah! Eu seria o que eu sou, mesmo que a estrela mais virginal do mundo tivesse iluminado a minha bastardia." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About The Last Thing You Say To Someone

"Youve come to give me a piece of your mind, I repeated, looking at her. "You know that phrase is really beautiful. The mind is the most powerful thing in the body, you know, whatever the mind believes, the body can achieve. So to give someone a piece of it...well, thank you, Elizabeth. Funny how people are always intent on giving it to the people they dislike when it really should be for the ones they love. Theres another funny thing. But a piece of your mind...what a gift that would be." I looped the last stalk and formed a chain. "Ill give you a daisy chain in return for a piece of your mind." I slid the bracelet onto her arm.She sat on the grass. Didnt move, didnt say anything, just looked at her daisy chain. Then she smiled and when she spoke her voice was soft. "Has anyone ever been mad at you for more than five minutes."I looked at my watch. "Yes. You, from the oclock this morning until now." - Author: Cecelia Ahern

Quotes About College Parties

"High school parties exhausted me because I always felt like I was the only thinking person in a room mostly full of morons obliterating precious IQ points with every gulp of whatever booze they managed to steal out of their parents liquor cabinets. College parties are exhausting in a diametrically opposite way. They are full of smart, funny people who are all used to being the smartest, funniest person in the room, so they spend the whole party talking over one another, overlapping and overtaking the conversation to prove that they are the smartest, funniest person in the room, if not the entire planet." - Author: Megan McCafferty

Quotes About Racehorses

"Human beings are ultimately nothing but carriers-passageways- for genes. They ride us into the ground like racehorses from generation to generation. Genes dont think about what constitutes good or evil. They dont care whether we are happy or unhappy. Were just means to an end for them. The only thing they think about is what is most efficient for them." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Disagreement In A Relationship

"Nobody can define what exactly true love is. Some believe in it and many others dont. If somebody tries to define it, there will be many agreements and disagreements. Especially since nowadays marriages dont even last long anymore which encourages many to stay single. Faith and understanding in relationships is what many lack because it seems weve forgotten nothing and no one is perfect." - Author: Jonathan Anthony Burkett

Quotes About Ruling An Empire

"Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy." - Author: Frank Herbert

Quotes About Lying Repeatedly

"Now keep in mind that the typical Greek myth goes something like this: innocent shepherd boy is minding his own business, an overflying god spies him and gets a hard-on, swoops down and rapes him silly; while the victim is still staggering around in a daze, that gods wife or lover, in a jealous rage, turns him–the helpless, innocent victim, that is–into lets say an immortal turtle and e.g. power-staples him to a sheet of plywood with a dish of turtle food just out of his reach and leaves him out in the sun forever to be repeatedly disemboweled by army ants and stung by hornets or something. So if Arachne had dissed anyone else in the Pantheon, she would have been just a smoking hole in the ground before she knew what hit her." - Author: Neal Stephenson

Quotes About Forks And Spoons

"This table is a pigeon trap. A dozen different forks and knives and spoons. Four different goblets. All of them just waiting to be knocked over or misapplied and mishandled. Its a wonder anyone is ever tempted to eat." - Author: Siri Mitchell
