Joy Casey Quotes

"Charlotte hadnt seen or heard anyone approaching, so she yelped when the stranger hoisted her into his arms. All she could do was stare blankly at the absolute strinking male who had just scooped her up and now held her in his arms. She thought she was hallucinating, because this mysterious guy was seriously cute. She wasnt usually at a loss for words, but she had completely lost her ability to think straight, so she decided to keep her mouth shut."

Shannon Dermott Quotes

"Luke captured my gaze again and said, "If beauty were time, youd be eternity." My heart stopped. I was paralysed to look away from him(...)Thankfully, another senior boy who apparently wasnt dating anyone spoke. And when the words came out of his mouth, I understood why he was girlfriendless. "If you were a booger, Id pick you first."A lot of yuck and thats gross penetrated the tables atmosphere. A rain of crumpled napkins showered over the boy. Of course, all the guys laughed at him, including Luke, who was finally looking away from me.I was never so grateful for such a tactless comment."

Quotes About Flying Away Together

"Do not think that time simply flies away. Do not understand "flying" as the only function of time. If time simply flew away, a separation would exist between you and time. So if you understand time as only passing, then you do not understand the time being.   To grasp this truly, every being that exists in the entire world is linked together as moments in time, and at the same time they exist as individual moments of time. Because all moments are the time being, they are your time being." - Author: Ruth Ozeki

Quotes About Not Being Forthright

"Allow me to presume upon this new friendship of ours by telling you that denying your fiance your company in order to gain whatever it is you want, is not only foolish but risky. It was obvious to me that his grace has a great affection for you, and I truly think he would give you anything you want if you simply gave him that lovely smile of yours and asked him for it. Deceit and deviousness do you no credit, my child, and whats more, they will get you absolutely nowhere with the duke. He has known females far more skilled in deception and trickery than you, and all those ladies ever got from him was the opportunity to amuse him for a very brief time. While you, by being direct and forthright as I sense that you are, have gained the very thing those other females most desired. You have gained the offer of his graces hand in marriage."-Dr. Whitticomb" - Author: Judith McNaught

Quotes About Left Handers

"In an area so reliant on opinion there is also the matter of received opinion to consider. The old turkey of the innate beauty of left handers is probably a result of the rarer days for ‘cack-handers when Frank Woolley bestrode the shires on both sides of World War I. After a long gap, his mantle was languidly accepted in England by David Gower. But for every Woolley there was a Mead and for every Gower a Trescothick as if to balance the equation and bury the turkey." - Author: Patrick Ferriday
