Quotes About Calling It Quits

"The meanings that God calls us to in our lives are never abstract.  Though the call may ask us to redefine, or refine what we know as life,  it does not demand a renunciation of life in favor of something beyond it.  Moreover, the call itself is always composed of life.   That is, it is not some hitherto unknown voice to which we respond;  it is life calling to life."" - Author: Christian Wiman

Quotes About Mastering

"The time we need in order to heal our wounds and finally manifest our deepest dreams is only as long as the gap between two thoughts. These are thoughts in polarity, such as separation and unity, conflict and peace, misery and joy, hate and love, etc. Since as human beings we are all capable of experiencing both thoughts, the only skill we need to develop involves mastering the GAP." - Author: Franco Santoro

Quotes About Conversing

"Darcy: I certainly have not the talent which some people possess, of conversing easily with those I have never seen before. I cannot catch their tone of conversation, or appear interested in their concerns, as I often see done.Elizabeth:My fingers do not move over this instrument in the masterly manner which I see so many womens do. They have not the same force or rapidity, and do not produce the same expression. But then I have always supposed it to be my own fault -- because I would not take the trouble of practicing. It is not that I do not believe my fingers as capable as any other womans of superior execution." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Bronte Family

"I know more about Emily Bronte than anyone I know. I know enough about her family to have been a part. Ive walked with her on her damp luscious lonely moors, watched her strain to write on miniscule scraps of paper, seen her hide her works from prying eyes. Ive brooded alongside her and participated in her taciturnity. Before her death at the ripe old age of 30, I nursed her from the things that ultimately killed her: tuberculosis with a side order of Victorian thinking." - Author: Chila Woychik

Quotes About Traditional Food

"We have almost all had the experience of gazing at the full moon. But those of us who are neither astronomers nor astronauts are unlikely to have scheduled moongazing appointments. For Zen Buddhists in Japan, however, every year, on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese lunisolar calendar, followers gather at nightfall around specially constructed cone-shaped viewing platforms, where for several hours prayers are read aloud which use the moon as a springboard for reflections on Zen ideas of impermanence, a ritual known as tsukimi. Candles are lit and white rice dumplings (tsukimi dango) are prepared and shared out among strangers in an atmosphere at once companionable and serene, a feeling thereby supported by a ceremony, by architecture, by good company and by food." - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About National Anthems

"Sure, politicians rob from us, the people—but only because its in our best interest. If they didnt rob from us, somebody else would, and this other scoundrel wouldnt even bother to wrap the theft in an American flag. So really we should rejoice in being swindled, and group together as patriots, and sing national anthems, and smile because were being looted by men and women who know the best thing for us is to have us believe they are the best thing for us—and that they are the best among us, and as such they deserve special privileges that we, the huddling masses, have no right to demand." - Author: Jarod Kintz

Quotes About Au Pairs

"The thinking man often rebuked his girlfriend because of her extravagance. Once he discovered four pairs of shoes in her room. "I also have four different kinds of feet," she excused herself. The thinking man laughed and asked: "So what do you do, when one pair is worn out?" At that, she realized he was not yet quite in the picture and said, "I made a mistake, I have five different kinds of feet." With that the thinking man was finally in the picture." - Author: Bertolt Brecht
