[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.]

"The day you give priority to bogus ethics over human reactions, you become a loser. Human reactions are priceless. Rules should never, ever stifle emotions. Tennis is a very human game facing a great danger that it will be strangulated in a cats cradle of unnecessary or inhumane rules."

Mark Gevisser Quotes

"Even if Zuma was to develop the authoritarian impulses of a Mugabe, he would be checked—not least by his own party, which set a continental precedent by ousting Thabo Mbeki in 2007, after it felt he had outstayed his welcome by seeking a third term as party president. The ANC appears to have set itself against that deathtrap of African democracy: the ruler for life."

Amy Layne Litzelman Quotes

"Do you find yourself in a dry place today? Dont look back toward the land of your bondage, or even to the place where God miraculously saved you from your enemies.

Quotes About Diviners

"People despair of love stupidly – I have despaired of it myself — they live in servitude to this idea that love is always behind them, never before them: bygone years, lies about forgetting after twenty years. They can bear to admit – and force themselves to – that love is not for them, with its procession of clarities, with this look it casts upon the world from all the eyes of diviners. They are limping with fallacious memories, for which they even invent the origin of an immemorial fall, so as not to find themselves too guilty. And yet for each, the promise of each coming hour contains lifes whole life secret, perhaps about to be revealed one day, possibly in another being." - Author: André Breton

Quotes About Forbidden City

"I had lost some of my naivete and gained strength. These women with their pointless scheming could not contain me, and I watched the volatile world of the gynaeceum with a detached eye. The Forbidden City had buried my youth, and in the monastery, I had died and come back to life. Friends, enemies and mistresses had all disappeared. I was a ghost from a lost world, still going from one season to the next and still living for one man alone." - Author: Shan Sa

Quotes About Louvre

"If I walked down by different streets to the Jardin du Luxembourg in the afternoon I could walk through the gardens and then go to the Musée du Luxembourg where the great paintings were that have now mostly been transferred to the Louvre and the Jeu de Paume. I went there nearly every day for the Cézannes and to see the Manets and the Monets and the other Impressionists that I had first come to know about in the Art Institute at Chicago. I was learning something from the painting of Cézanne that made writing simple true sentences far from enough to make the stories have the dimensions that I was trying to put in them. I was learning very much from him but I was not articulate enough to explain it to anyone. Besides it was a secret. But if the light was gone in the Luxembourg I would walk up through the gardens and stop in at the studio apartment where Gertrude Stein lived at 27 rue de Fleurus." - Author: Ernest Hemingway

Lots of potassium, which helps you shed water weight, right? And theres no trans fats in the pie crust. I can promise you that.""Yeah?" Her lips pursed, suppressing a smile.

Quotes About Transmetropolitan

"Ive enjoyed the comicbook writings of Warren Ellis since a friend introduced me to Transmetropolitan via the "holiday special" in collected volume three.

Quotes About Girl Strength

"Shame upon him who can look on calmly, and exclaim,‘The foolish girl! she should have waited; she should haveallowed time to wear off the impression; her despair wouldhave been softened, and she would have found another loverto comfort her.

Quotes About Singing Birds

"Night was falling. Birds were singing. Birds were, it occurred to me to say, enacting a frantic celebration of days end. They were manifesting as the earths bright-colored nerve endings, the suns descent urging them into activity, filling them individually with life nectar, the life nectar then being passed into the world, out of each beak, in the form of that birds distinctive song, which was, in turn, an accident of beak shape, throat shape, breast configuration, brain chemistry: some birds blessed in voice, others cursed; some squeaking, others rapturous." - Author: George Saunders
