Joshua Rosenthal Quotes

"We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because its talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, its easy for the other to take that person for granted. Thats what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationship with your own body."

Philip Schaff Quotes

"It is more than a book, it is an institution which rules the Christian world."

Bill Plotkin Quotes

"Remember that self-doubt is as self-centered as self-inflation. Your obligation is to reach as deeply as you can and offer your unique and authentic gifts as bravely and beautifully as youre able."

Naoki Higashida Quotes

"We do take pleasure in one thing that you probably wont be able to guess. Namely, making friends with nature. ... nature is always there at hand to wrap us up, gently: glowing, swaying, bubbling, rustling. Just by looking at nature, I feel as if Im being swallowed up into it, and in that moment I get the sensation that my bodys now a speck, a speck from long before I was born, a speck that is melting into nature herself. This sensation is so amazing that I forget that Im a human being, and one with special needs to boot. Nature calms me down when Im furious, and laughs with me when Im happy. You might think that its not possible that nature could be a friend, not really. But human beings are part of the animal kingdom too, and perhaps us people with autism still have some left-over awareness of this, buried somewhere deep down. Ill always cherish that part of me that thinks of nature as a friend."

Robert Redford Quotes

Louise Penny Quotes

"Hed shoved his toque and mitts into the sleeve of his parka when hed come in the night before, and now, thrusting his right arm into the armhole, he hit the blockage. At a practiced shove the pompom of the toque crowned the cuff followed by his mitts, like a tiny birth."

Hugo Pratt Quotes

"Minä olen tuhkimus! Raivoisa tuhkimus!"

Alberto Sordi Quotes

"Take care, these Italians, full of failings, are neither you, nor me; they are your neighbors, the ones you meet on the staircase and whom you do not like to greet."

Quotes About Words Spoken In Anger

"So I heard on the news that the Tard died and your house burnt down. I bet secretly youre relieved you dont have to live with him anymore in that dump."The whole commotion in the hallway immediately stopped, as if her words had been spoken over the intercom. It became so quiet that you could hear Minas and Nans sharp intakes of breath. Mina wasnt prone to violence and was about to think of something mean to say back to Savannah, but she didnt have the chance to, because Nan Taylor, perky, happy-go-lucky Nan Taylor, pulled back her fist and punched Savannah in the face. Savannah wasnt prepared, and fell to the floor. Nan stood over her shocked face and yelled, "No way was he handicapped, or different. He was the most special, coolest and smartest kid ever. And the world is a much sadder place because hes not here. And dont you ever, EVER, insult him again!" Nan shook with anger.The hall was full of students and teachers, and one by one they started to clap." - Author: Chanda Hahn

Quotes About Micawber

"My dear Copperfield," he replied. "To a man possessed of the higher imaginative powers, the objection to legal studies is the amount of detail which they involve.

Quotes About Immigrant Workers

"People might feel sorry for a man whos fallen on hard times, but when an entire nation is poor, the rest of the world assumes that all its people must be brainless, lazy, dirty, clumsy fools. Instead of pity, the people provoke laughter. Its all a joke: their culture, their customs, their practices. In time the rest of the world may, some of them, begin to feel ashamed for having thought this way, and when they look around and see immigrants from that poor country mopping their floors and doing all the other lowest paying jobs, naturally they worry about what might happen if these workers one day rose up against them. So, to keep things sweet, they start taking an interest in the immigrants culture and sometimes even pretend they think of them as equals." - Author: Orhan Pamuk

Quotes About Shelter

"In all my life, I have only had one haven that sheltered me from my hell. One woman whose smile made me fly even after Id hit the ground so hard that I didnt think I could ever stand again. There is nothing in this universe that could destroy me, except you, Zarya. You have taken a monster and made him human. My wounded soul was healed because of your smile. So long as I live and even beyond this life, I am and will always be ever yours." - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Wright Brothers

"Before the Wright brothers flew, flying was fantasy. Before the civil rights movement, people getting along together and the races being equal was a fantasy. Things change because we imagine a different world, a world that is not. And I think that imagination is one of the most important and defining aspects of human existence: our ability to imagine a world that is not." - Author: Brandon Sanderson
