Utah Phillips Quotes

"Frying-Pan Jack and I were in that camp, thats where he said to me, hed been tramping since 1927, I told myself in 27, if I cannot dictate the conditions of my labor, I will henceforth cease to work. You dont have to go to college to figure these things out, no sir. He said, I learned when I was young that the only true life I had was the life of my brain. But if its true that the only real life I had was the life of my brain, what sense does it make to hand that brain to someone for eight hours a day, for their particular use, on the presumption that at the end of the day they will give it back in an unmutilated condition? Fat chance!"

Chris Baty Quotes

"If you have a million things to do, adding item number 1,000,001 is not such a big deal. When, on the other hand, you have nothing to do, getting out of bed and washing yourself before 2:00 P.M. feels like too much work to even contemplate."

William R Inge Quotes

"The world as it is is the world as God sees it, not as we see it. Our vision is distorted, not so much by the limits of finitude as by sin and ignorance. But the more we raise ourselves in the scale of being, the more will our ideas about God and the world correspond to reality."

Quotes About Giving Birth Naturally

"Giving Birth by Marcus Amaker do you remember when the earth was just a baby, settling in its skin,safe in the arms of mother naturewith fire breathing from within.you were not shackled by timeand life roamed around your heartwith the weight of dinosaurs,leaving footprints in your lungs.and the first time you saw the sunyou could barely breathebecause the possibility of endless lightplanted a seedso you admire the strength of trees,who naturally grew into unwavering beauty, staring down the mouth oftime. do you remember being 11 years oldwhen your mother told you"birth is more painful than dying"and you burst with dreamswithout even trying, seeking light in your heart, where shadows now restcomfortably next to fear.but you come out of the woods clear,with natures breathunder your tongue, and a weightless bliss, no longer scared of death." - Author: Marcus Amaker

Quotes About Undergarments

"I choose my outfit, my undergarments with care, because I know from experience that a drink, with him, will lead to much, much more. In the bar, I bask in his attention, happy in this moment, knowing full well it will be fleeting. I lie in bed, his sleeping body curled around mine, his arm around my waist, marvelling that someone can be so close, skin against mine, but simultaneously seem so remote, so inaccessible.When we part the next day and I hear the words I fully expect to hear - well, I guess Ill see you when I get back - i feel a twinge of something I was determined not to feel. A brief pang of remorse that I may have been selling little pieces of myself to the lowest bidder." - Author: Catherine Sanderson

Quotes About Insecurities In Relationships

"Acceptance. We want someone to look at us, and really see us—our physical flaws, our personality quirks, our insecurities. And we want them to be okay with every square inch of who we are. Were always afraid we might be too needy or too much work. We put all these limitations on ourselves and our relationships because were afraid that were not really loved. That were not really accepted. We hide little pieces of ourselves because we think that might be the one thing that finally drives away the person whos supposed to love us." - Author: Michele Bardsley

Quotes About Vjetra

"Pijesak, kamenje, vjetar, još narančastije nebo, gomila plosnatih oblaka prema kojima je padalo sunce...Potom duge sjene, umiranje vjetra, mir...Samo zvuk kopita na kamenju i zvuci našeg disanja... Prigušeno svjetlo kad se sunce sudarilo s oblacima... Zidovi dana potresani grmljavinom...Neprirodno jasni obrisi udaljenih predmeta... Hladan, električno plavi osjećaj u zraku...Opet grmljavina...Sad - uzbiban, staklasti zastor kiše koja mi se približava zdesna... Plave pukotine u oblacima... Temperatura pada, naš korak i dalje stalan, svijet sad posve jednobojan..." - Author: Roger Zelazny
