[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.]

Quotes About Drunken Memories

"After a long night at a tropical beach and bar,I helped a drunken couple find their cabin in the early morning darkness. The husband remarked that he is only happy when he is drunk. (I am not sure what to make of that.)When I hear birds serenading the gift of a new day,When I watch the trees sway like fields of wheat,and feel a warm wind ruffle my hair and caress my face,When I see clouds slowly drift and turn like leaves floating on a meandering stream,I know joy. When I hear your sweet voice and see your generous smile, When I gently pull you closer and inhale your perfume,which harks back wonderful memories of love and joy,When I gaze into your eyes, azure pools that draw me in,and gently kiss your crimson lips, When you are lying next to me with your hand on my chest and we feel intimately connected, as if your body is my body, your heart is my heart and our souls are intermingled,I know happiness,I know love." - Author: Jeffrey A. White

Quotes About Kayp

"O gün kapkaranlık sokaklarda dolaştım sokaklarda.İçimde, bu şölen sofrasına çıkarıp "bu da benden!" diye koyacak birşey yoktu.Renkli giysileri içinde güzel bacaklarını,muhallebi karınlarını,göğüslerini gösteren,saçlarından ışıltılar saçılan kızlar bende yalnızca ve yalnızca bir keşiş olma isteği uyandırıyordu.Bu istek de öfkelendiriyordu beni.İnsanın en temel meselelerinden birine, "Arzu etme acı çekersin!" kaypak bilgeliğiyle karşılık verenlere,insanları gömdükleri gibi meselelerini de gömebileceklerini düşünen kazma-kürek erbabına öfke duyuyordum." - Author: Barış Bıçakçı
