Nick Drake Quotes

PT Barnum Quotes

"Young men starting in life should avoid running into debt. There is scarcely anything that drags a person down like debt. It is a slavish position to get ill, yet we find many a young man, hardly out of his "teens," running in debt. He meets a chum and says, "Look at this: I have got trusted for a new suit of clothes." He seems to look upon the clothes as so much given to him; well, it frequently is so, but, if he succeeds in paying and then gets trusted again, he is adopting a habit which will keep him in poverty through life. Debt robs a man of his self-respect, and makes him almost despise himself."

Denis Johnson Quotes

"Animals had returned to what was left of the forest...clusters of orange butterflies exploded off the blackish purple piles of bear sign and winked and fluttered magically like leaves without trees. More bears than people traveled the muddy road, leaving tracks straight up and down the middle of it..."

Hemant Mehta Quotes

"Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on.I dont see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isnt that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat?"

Fr James Groenings Quotes

"Christ has come into the world to lay out a garden wherein, amid splendor and abundance, there should thrive the violet of humanity, the myrtle of mortification, the rose of love, the lily of virginal souls, the laurel of confessors and the palm of martyrs."

It is through the pain of confronting and resolving problems that we learn." - Author: M. Scott Peck

Quotes About Scarlet

"Its a shadowy world, skies are slippery grey. A woman just gave birth to a prince today and dressed him in scarlet. Hell put the priest in his pocket, put the blade to the heat, take the motherless children off the street and place them at the feet of a harlot." - Author: Bob Dylan

Quotes About Beneath

"People who were only ever half right about things drove me mad.

Quotes About Journeys

"The passion for travelling is, I believe, instinctive in some natures. We have seen men persevere in their enterprises against the most formidable obstacles; and, without means or friends, and even ignorant of the languages of the various countries through which they passed, pursue their perilous journeys into remote places, until, like the knight in the Arabian tale, they succeeded in snatching a memorial from every shrine they visited." - Author: James Holman
