"In nature, there is less death and destruction than death and transmutation."

Diane Wood Middlebrook Quotes

Justin Bienvenue Quotes

"There is but a gentle stillness inside every cerebral. Tiny waterfalls of blood vessels rushing, becoming lethal."

Connie Brockway Quotes

"How can you love me?" she asked, forcing herself to say the words that would kill the tenderness in his eyes. "You dont even know me. You know ‘Lady Agatha, a composite, a character, a role I played."He shook his head, his negation gentle but certain. "I didnt fall in love with a character, a title, or an occupation. I didnt fall in love with you because of your past or despite it."I love you because of your intensity and passion, because you make me want to be better than I am, because seeing my reflection in your eyes makes me better than I am. I love you because you laugh easily and honestly. I love you because you carried an ugly mutt into a drawing room as though it were a prince and because you gave an old soldier a strawberry trifle. I love you, Letty."

Wendy Lichtman Quotes

Elizabeth Kim Quotes

"People said things to me like "Theyre just animals. Theyre here for our use." I had a visceral reaction to that phrase, maybe because I was told countless times during my growing-up years that I was "just like an animal." I had suffered much of my life because I was considered less than human. Animals were suffering because they were less than human. And it seemed to me that human didnt have much to be proud of, if they treated other living things with such blind cruelty."

"Insisting that his writing did not offer a philosophy of life, Hardy claims that each poem was an ‘impression, intensely subjective and evanescent."

Quotes About See The Light

"Three hours later they watched the Ile de France slip out toward the flat blue distance of the open sea and sky. How astouding, Andras thought, that a ship that size could shrink to the size of a house, and then to the size of a car; the size of a desk, a book, a shoe, a walnut, a grain of rice, a grain of sand. How astounding that the largest thing hed ever seen was still no match for the diminishing effect of distance. It made him aware of his own smallness in the world, his insignificance in the face of what might come, and for a moment his chest felt light with panic." - Author: Julie Orringer

"Well, my personal mission statement is that we want marriage equality in all 50 states. We want it not to be a state-by-state issue. We dont want it to be something the majority is voting on.

Quotes About Sisterhood

"When death comes….I want to step through the door full of curiosity, wondering:what its going to be like, that cottage of darkness?And therefore I look upon everythingas a brotherhood and a sisterhood,and I look upon time as no more than an idea,and I consider eternity as another possibility,and I think of each life as a flower, as commonas a field daisy, and as singular,and each name a comfortable music in the mouth,tending, as all music does, toward silence,and each body as a lion of courage, and somethingprecious to the earth.[from the poem "When Death Comes"]" - Author: Mary Oliver

Quotes About Aging Population

"Over the years, the British had strategically pitted the Muslims against the Hindus, supporting the All India Muslim League and encouraging the notion that the Muslims were a distinct political community. Throughout British India, separate electorates had been offered to Muslims, underscoring their separateness from Hindus and sowing the seeds of communalism. Teh Morley-Minto reforms in 1908 had allowed direct election for seats and separate or communal representation for Muslims. This was the harbinger for the formation of the Muslim League in 1906. In 1940, the Muslim League, representing one-fifth of the total population of India, became a unifying force. They were resentful that they were not sufficiently represented in Congress and feared for the safety of Islam." - Author: Prem Kishore

Quotes About Time In Life Of Pi

"It is the highest activity of the human soul, and therefore it is at the same time the ultimate test of a mans true spiritual condition. There is nothing that tells the truth about us as Christian people so much as our prayer life.… Ultimately, therefore, a man discovers the real condition of his spiritual life when he examines himself in private, when he is alone with God.… And have we not all known what it is to find that, somehow, we have less to say to God when we are alone than when we are in the presence of others? It should not be so; but it often is. So that it is when we have left the realm of activities and outward dealings with other people, and are alone with God, that we really know where we stand in a spiritual sense.3" - Author: John F. MacArthur Jr.

Quotes About Investing In Love

"Modern amorists are sometimes taken aback at the prospect of investing in a relationship with no guarantee of reward. It is precisely that absence, however, that separates gift from shrewdness. Love cannot be extracted, commanded, demanded, or wheedled. It can only be given. (208)" - Author: Thomas Lewis

Quotes About Itching

"Yes there were two great groups of dogs wrangling for the bitching-goddess: the group of the flatterers, those who offered her amusement, stories, films, plays: and the other, much less showy, much more savage breed, those who gave her meat, the real substance of money. The well-groomed showy dogs of amusement wrangled and snarled among themselves for the favors of the bitch-goddess. But it was nothing to the silent fight-to-the-death that went on among the indispensables, the bone-bringers." - Author: D.H. Lawrence

Quotes About Spending Time With Grandchildren

"Some people center the universe around themselves; while making other people nothing but decorations to their existence. "I will do this and then I will do that and then people will think this about me and then people will think that about me, and then I will add that person to my life when the convenient time arrives, and this person over here would make a very convenient addition as well..." They build their own thrones for themselves, and add decorations all around their thrones. The problem with that is: it does not bring happiness. A throne must be built for you; it must not be you who builds your own throne. If so, everything that you think you are is only an illusion! And illusions dissolve one day. Poof!" - Author: C.
