Mishka Shubaly Quotes

"If you talk to little kids about drugs, they tell you that drugs make you feel weird and act crazy and hang around with strange people. Getting sober and running long distances has been deeply bizarre, weirder than any drug or combination of drugs Ive tried.

"The Thai people are pathologically shy. Combine that with a reluctance to lose face by giving a wrong answer, and it makes for a painfully long [ESL] class. Usually I ask the students to work on exercises in small groups, and then I move around and check their progress. But for days like today, when Im grading on participation, speaking up in public is a necessary evil. "Jao," I say to a man in my class. "You own a pet store, and you want to convince Jaidee to buy a pet." I turn to a second man. "Jaidee, you do not want to buy that pet. Lets hear your conversation."They stand up, clutching their papers. "This dog is reccommended," Jao begins."I have one already," Jaidee replies."Good job!" I encourage. "Jao, give him a reason why he should buy your dog.""This dog is alive," Jao adds.Jaidee shrugs. "Not everyone wants a pet that is alive."Well, not all days are successes..." - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Lizzy In Pride And Prejudice

"The first time Mr. Darcy asked Lizzy to marry him in Pride and Prejudice, he went about it all wrong," I started, smiling at the connection Id just made in my mind. "He insulted her and herfamily. But after her refusal, he made a conscious effort to change for the better, and everything worked out for them the second time he proposed. Its the same with us. You learned from your past mistakes, and everythings different now. Just as Lizzy gave Mr. Darcy a second chance, Im going to do the same for you.""Im glad that Lizzy gave Mr. Darcy a second chance." He smiled at the comparison. "She was the only one for him. He would have been miserable without her.""And she would have been miserable without him." I laughed.

Quotes About Scope

"think when its all over it just comes back in flashes, you know? Its like a kaleidoscope of memories; it just all comes back. But he never does. I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. Its not really anything he said, or anything he did ― it was the feeling that came along with it. Crazy thing is, I dont know if Im ever going to feel that way again. But I dont know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright, but I just thought, How can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasnt losing him. It was losing me." - Author: Taylor Swift
