Dinah Maria Mulock Craik Quotes

"Forgotten? No, we never do forget:We let the years go; wash them clean with tears,Leave them to bleach out in the open day,Or lock them careful by, like dead friends clothes,Till we shall dare unfold them without pain,—But we forget not, never can forget."

Daniel Bell Quotes

"But in action, one defies ones character."

Kate Moses Quotes

"Later, when I was a new mother, I recognized her somewhat awestruck fascination with me. When you are fully immersed in the daily care and quirks and habits of a small, dependent child, an older kid who is articulate, civilized, and capable of moving around in the world without getting itself killed can seem as supernatural as a wizard."

Cy Young Quotes

"Gosh, all a kid has to do these days is spit straight and he gets forty-thousand dollars to sign."

Vanessa Carlton Quotes

"The women who dont feel that people think theyre sexy are the ones who seem to titillate in that way, because they dont feel like theyre getting that kind of approval."

Alice B Toklas Quotes

"The French approach to food is characteristic; they bring to their consideration of the table the same appreciation, respect, intelligence and lively interest that they have for the other arts, for painting, for literature, and for the theatre. We foreigners living in France respect and appreciate this point of view but deplore their too strict observance of a tradition which will not admit the slightest deviation in a seasoning or the suppression of a single ingredient. Restrictions aroused our American ingenuity, we found combinations and replacements which pointed in new directions and created a fresh and absorbing interest in everything pertaining to the kitchen."

Elizabeth Cadell Quotes

"Youll be happy if youll remember that men dont change much. Women do. Women adapt themselves, and if you think that means they lose their individuality, youre wrong. Show me a happy marriage and Ill show you a clever woman."

Cindy Margolis Quotes

"My bed is actually two king beds put together."

Phillip Cary Quotes

"We typically misunderstand whats wrong about consumerism. Its not that it makes us love material things too much. To be a good consumer, you have to desire to get lots of things, but you must not love any of them too much once you have them. Consumerism needs children who do not stay attached to their toys for very long and learn to expect the next round of presents as soon as possible. When consumerism succeeds, our attachments are shallow, easily broken, so we can move on to the next thing were supposed to get. Being a good consumer means desiring new things, not cherishing old ones. And the new things youre supposed to desire are not always material things. Spirituality is now a consumerist enterprise, too."

Quotes About Alther

"Dunkler Tannenwald dräute finster zu beiden Seiten des Wasserlaufs. Der Wind hatte kürzlich die weiße Schneedecke von den Bäumen gestreift, sodass sie aussahen, als drängten sie sich unheimlich finster in dem schwindenden Tageslicht aneinander. Tiefes Schweigen lag über dem Lande, das eine Wildnis war, ohne Leben, ohne Bewegung, so einsam, so kalt, dass die Stimmung darin nicht einmal traurig zu sein schien. Vielmehr lag ein Lachen darüber, ein Lachen schrecklicher als jede Traurigkeit, freudlos wie das Lächeln der Sphinx, kalt wie der Frost und grimmig wie die Notwendigkeit. Die unerbittliche, unerforschliche Weisheit des Lebens und seiner Anstrengungen. Es war die echte Wildnis, die ungezähmte, kaltherzige Wildnis des Nordens" - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Almost Breaking Up

"Most people who fall obsessively in love claim that it happens precipitously, unexpectedly [...]But I believe theres almost always a prerequisite. Falling in love in this way will usually occur at a time of transition. We may not be conscious of it, but something has ended and something new must begin. Romantic obsession is like a cataclysm breaking up the empty landscape. Like a strange exotic plant, it grows in arid soil. (pp. 27-28)" - Author: Rosemary Sullivan

Quotes About Existential Despair

"The entire range of human experience is present in a church choir, including, but not restricted to jealousy, revenge, horror, pride, incompetence (the tenors have never been on the right note in the entire history of church choirs, and the basses have never been on the right page), wrath, lust and existential despair." - Author: Connie Willis

Quotes About Getting Involved In School

"Progress is hardly ever dramatic; in fact, it is usually very slow. As every parent and teacher knows, education is never a matter of ten-step plans or quick formulas, but of faithful commitment to the mundane challenges of daily life: getting up from the sofa to spend time with our children, loving them and disciplining them, becoming involved in their lives at school and, most important, making sure they have a wholesome family life to return to at home. Maybe that is why Jesus teaches us to ask for strength little by little, on a daily basis - "Give us this day our daily bread" - and why he stresses the significance of even the smallest, humblest beginnings: "Wherever two of you agree about anything you ask for, it shall be done for you... For where two or three come together in my name, I shall be with them" (Mt. 18:19-20)." - Author: Johann Christoph Arnold

Quotes About European Imperialism

"In most of the European countries - France stands out in its resistance to this particular form of American cultural imperialism - the national film industries were forced onto the defensive after the war by such binding agreements." - Author: Fredric Jameson

Quotes About Ian

"There are a number of World War II historians I admire: Cornelius Ryan, Mark Stoler, Antony Beevor, to name a few. As for generals, there are those I admire as combat leaders and others I admire because theyre great fun to write about." - Author: Rick Atkinson

Quotes About Repeated Apologies

"If I were anyone else…your opera singer…the woman across the hall…would you have apologized?"He looked confused. "No…but you are neither of those women. You deserve better.""Better," she repeated, frustrated. "Thats just my point! You and the rest of society believe that its better for me to be set upon a pedestal of primness and propriety—which might have been fine if a decade on that pedestal hadnt simply landed me on the shelf. Perhaps unmarried young women like our sisters should be there. But what of me?" Her voice dropped as she looked down at the cards in her hands. "Im never going to get a chance to experience life from up there. All that is up there is dust and unwanted apologies. The same cage as hers"—she indicated the woman outside—"merely a different gilt." - Author: Sarah MacLean

Quotes About Enchantress

"Think of every fairy-tale villainess youve ever heard of. Think of the wicked witches, the evil queens, the mad enchantresses. Think of the alluring sirens, the hungry ogresses, the savage she-beasts. Think of them and remember that somewhere, sometime, theyve all been real.Mab gave them lessons." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About You Are Special For Me

"When you run with the Doctor, it feels like itll never end. But however hard you try you cant run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever for one moment, accepts it. Everybody knows that everybody dies. But not every day. Not today. Some days are special. Some days are so, so blessed. Some days, nobody dies at all. (In the library, the Doctor walks back to the TARDIS. He stops, looking at the doors. Then he raises his hand, and stands there poised like that for a long moment. Finally he snaps his fingers. The doors open. He smiles slowly and walks in, joining Donna. Then he snaps his fingers again, and the doors close. Rivers voice continues over this.) Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair, and the Doctor comes to call... everybody lives." - Author: Steven Moffat
