Troy Jollimore Quotes

"But I will confess 
that I began as an astronomer—a liking
for bright flashes, vast distances, unreachable things,
a hand stretched always toward the furthest limit—
and that my longing for you has not taken me
very far from that original desire
to inscribe a comets orbit around the walls
of our city, to gently stroke the surface of the stars."

Jan Siegel Quotes

"Once people needed heaven and hell, Elysium and Faerie. They believed. Belief is the great creative force, the faith that moves mountains. If Someone had not believed in us, so they say, we would never have been born. I have spent my darkest hours wondering what kind of a Creator would have believed in me." Kal"

Quotes About Arguing With Mom

"I read once that it takes fourteen miles for an oil tanker to change course. The same change for mothers and daughters must take a nearly equal number of years. But in all those miles and years there does come one precise moment, one discrete point in an infinite vastness, when you start heading in an entirely new direction. I know that, for better or for worse, Aubrey and I have hit that moment when instead of arguing with me, fighting to convince me to accept what she wants, she states in a steady, even way that doesnt ask for my permission or seem ready to bristle when I dont offer it, "Mom, I have to go." - Author: Sarah Bird

Quotes About Round World

"The fire had burned to coals and he lay looking up at the stars in their places and the hot belt of matter that ran the chord of the dark vault overhead and he put his hands on the ground at either side of him and pressed them against the earth and in that coldly burning canopy of black he slowly turned dead center to the world, all of it taut and trembling and moving enormous and alive under his hands.Whats her name? said Rawlins in the darkness.Alejandra. Her name is Alejandra." - Author: Cormac McCarthy

Quotes About Oeuvres

"Terre en vacance doeuvres dart. Je méprise ceux qui ne savent reconnaître la beauté que transcrite déjà et toute interprétée. Le peuple arabe a ceci dadmirable que, son art, il le vit, il le chante et le dissipe au jour le jour; il ne le fixe point et ne lembaume en aucune oeuvre. Cest la cause et leffet de labsence de grands artistes. Jai toujours cru les grands artistes ceux qui osent donner droit de beauté à des choses si naturelles quelles font dire après à qui les voit : Comment navais-je pas compris jusqualors que cela était aussi beau?..." - Author: André Gide

Quotes About Allah Mercy

"Allah, Most High, has truly blessed us. He has created just for us the mysterious spirit that He has breathed into us and by so doing distinguished us from all other physical creation. He has adorned us with our incomparable intellect, which further distinguishes us from all else in this creation. What other creature on this planet -another gift He has blessed us with- can even begin to create the likes of this Internet? Will we not stop, give thanks to our Merciful and Generous Lord? Will we not stop and realize how precious our lives are and begin to show each other more love, mercy, kindness and empathy? Will we not stop, take time, and reflect?" - Author: Imam Zaid Shakir

Quotes About Reward And Recognition

"At their core, Tiger Eyes, Forever..., and Sally J. Freeman are all books about teenage issues, but to an adult reader, the parents story lines seem to almost overshadow their daughters. Im bringing an entirely new set of experiences to these novels now, and my reward is a fresh set of story lines that i missed the first time around. Im sure that in twenty or thirty years Ill read these books again and completely identify with all the grandparent characteristics. Thats the wonderful thing about Judy Blume - you can revisit her stories at any stage in life and find a character who strikes a deep chord of recognition. Ive been there, Im in the middle of this, someday thatll be me. The same characters, yet somehow completely different. (Beth Kendrick)" - Author: Jennifer OConnell

Quotes About Terrorism In Pakistan

"A common strand appeared to unite these conflicts, and that was the advancement of a small coteries concept of American interests in the guise of the fight against terrorism, which was defined to refer only to the organized and politically motivated killing of civilians by killers not wearing the uniforms of soldiers. I recognized that if this was to be the single most important priority of our species, then the lives of those of us who lived in lands in which such killers also lived had no meaning except as collateral damage. This, I reasoned, was why America felt justified in bringing so many deaths to Afghanistan and Iraq, and why America felt justified in risking so many more deaths by tacitly using India to pressure Pakistan." - Author: Mohsin Hamid

Quotes About Nilsen

"Ive been quoting the book [on Peter Sutcliffe] constantly in rehearsals. Some members of the cast have stated their disapproval that it should even have been written. Some of the women have expressed more - disgust and anger. What are they saying? Theyd prefer not to know, not to understand? Theyd prefer certain areas of life to be censored? Isnt that partly what breeds the Sutcliffes and the Nilsens?" - Author: Antony Sher

Quotes About Incredible Experiences

"I never look at fashion magazines. I find them incredibly boring. To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. Ive got books I need to read. More people should read books. Its the most concentrated experience you can have. You know, all those incredible geniuses concentrated their lifetimes experiences in books. Its much better than chattering away to somebody whos never read anything and knows nothing at all." - Author: Vivienne Westwood
