[I Saw Dad's Eyes Widen Just A Fraction When He Heard My Voice Catch. He Glanced At Me But Quickly Turned Away. He Didn't Want Me To See His Reaction, But I Did, And I'll Never Forget It. In That Brief Glimpse, I Could See What He Was Thinking Behind That Fixed Stare. There Would Be No Grandkids, There Would Be No More Creed Family Bloodline, Nothing Else To Look Forward To. From That Point On I'd Become The Last, Most Devastating Disappointment In What He Thought His Life Had Added Up To--one Overwhelming Failure.]

Hal Brady Quotes

"Some very hungry people gathered to discuss how to distribute a small amount of food. It was understood that each church was supposed to take care of its own. The local Episcopal rector said, "My church, follow me." The Presbyterian minister said, "Mine, follow me." And the other denominations did the same. There were a lot of folks left. Then, William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, stepped forward and said: "All of you who belong to nobody, you follow me."

Quotes About Bastian

"When Sebastian reached his room, the Black Earl stood by his bed. Sebastian turned away, fingering the cufflink in his pocket. He didnt need the Black Earls help in debauching Olivia anymore, he had apparently at last managed that well enough all on his own. He threw himself onto a chair, full of his memory of his hands on Olivia. Cold air sent a prickle along the backs of his arms. He opened his eyes and saw the Black Earl again. In one hand, he gripped a sword of unearthly silver, but held downward so that the point of the weapon touched the floor. He wept as if his heart were broken. "Aidez-la" Help her.Sebastian heard nothing but the roar of those words tearing through his soul. Help her.The Black Earl, weeping still, turned to the stone wall. A rent marred his crimson tunic, the edges jagged and blackened, and then he, too, vanished and left behind him nothing but an aching, unfillable emptiness.Help her." - Author: Carolyn Jewel

Quotes About Punishment For Love

"The sign of a good leader is easy to recognize, though it is hardly ever seen. For the greatest leaders are those who share as equals in the trials and struggles, the demands and expectations, the hills and trenches, the laws and punishments placed upon the backs of those governed. A great leader is motivated not by power but by compassion. Therefore he can do nothing but make himself a servant to those whom he rules. Such a leader is unequivocally respected, and loved for loving." - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich

Quotes About Coming Back Home

"I knew something as I watched almost everyone was saying goodbye to me. I was becoming one of many little girl-losts. They would go back to their homes and put me to rest, a letter from the past never reopened or reread. And I could say goodbye to them, wish them well, bless them somehow for their good thoughts. A handshake in the street, a dropped item picked up and retrieved and handed back, or a friendly wave from a distant window, a nod, a smile, a moment when the eyes lock over the antics of a child." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Making Bold Moves

"In ancient Rome, when a victorious general paraded through the streets, legend has it that he was sometimes trailed by a servant whose job it was to repeat to him, " Memento Mori": Remember you will die. A reminder of mortality would help the hero keep things in perspective, instill some humility. Jobs memento mori had been delivered by his doctors, but it did not instill humility. Instead he roared back after his recovery with even more passion. The illness reminded him that he had nothing to lose, so he should forge ahead full speed. " He came back on a mission," said Cook. " Even though he was now running a large company, he kept making bold moves that I dont think anybody else would have done." - Author: Walter Isaacson
