[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 Reflecting On Your Work

"Sometimes, most times, when I think back to the people that I loved, the person that I was... I feel like Im reading the pages of a book written about someone elses life.I cant believe that was me. I cant believe that was you. I cant believe there was an us.Its not that I regret it. It just doesnt feel like it happened to me and yet, I cant forget it. I feel like its still refracting and reflecting back on me, haunting me.Jesus intercepted my mind, my thoughts, my mistakes, my shame. Hes changed me from the inside out. But Im afraid you still see the stain.Lord, let them see my heart, look at You and Your still-in-progress work of art. Help us all to look beyond our burned bridges, charred reputations, scattered shards of memories, and gaze at the One who took on the weight of all the hate to find the freedom in redemption that we all crave." - Author: Katie Kiesler

Quotes About Goddess Hera

"The marriage of Zeus and Hera can hardly be reframed into a "happy one" and yet Hera is the Goddess of marriage. Hera and Zeus could be described as quarrelsome predecessors of the Holy Family. For the Greeks they symbolized marriage par excellence." - Author: Adolf Guggenbühl Craig

Quotes About Friendships Lasting Forever

"Nothing, in truth, can ever replace a lost companion. Old comrades cannot be manufactured. There is nothing that can equal the treasure of so many shared memories, so many bad times endured together, so many quarrels, reconciliations, heartfelt impulses. Friendships like that cannot be reconstructed. If you plant an oak, you will hope in vain to sit soon under its shade.For such is life. We grow rich as we plant through the early years, but then come the years when time undoes our work and cuts down our trees. One by one our comrades deprive us of their shade, and within our mourning we always feel now the secret grief of growing old.If I search among my memories for those whose taste is lasting, if I write the balance sheet of the moments that truly counted, I surely find those that no fortune could have bought me. You cannot buy the friendship of a companion bound to you forever by ordeals endured together." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Eua

"Wenn man von der Liebe oder der Ehe illusionäre Erwartungen hat und mehr fordert, als man selbst zu investieren bereit ist, muß man immer wieder enttäuscht werden; gewöhnlich erkennt man diesen Zusammenhang indessen nicht und bleibt auf der Suche nach der «großen Liebe». Man findet daher in den Partnerbeziehungen hysterischer Persönlichkeiten die häufigsten Trennungen und Neuanfänge; weil die letzteren jeweils für die vergangenen Enttäuschungen entschädigen sollen, werden neue Beziehungen von Beginn an überfordert, worin bereits wieder der Keim zum Scheitern liegt." - Author: Fritz Riemann

Quotes About Communicating Without Words

"Nick demonstrated twenty-three ways of communicating without words by fanning himself with a napkin. "This one means oops, your fly is open, sir, and if you lower the fan a little and look at someone over the top of it, it means wow, Id like to marry you. But if you do it the other way around, it means ha ha, we are now at war with Spain." - Author: Kerstin Gier

Quotes About Getting Committed

"In 1983 Colonel Burns wrote a poem in which he envisioned how his fledgling communications network might one day influence the world.Imagine the emergence of a new meta-culture.Imagine all kinds of people everywheregetting committed to human excellence,getting committed to closing the gapbetween the human conditionand the human potential...And imagine all of us hooked upwith a common high tech communications system.Thats a vision that brings tears to the eyes.Human excellence is an idealthat we can embedinto every formal human structureon our planet.And thats really why were going to do this.And thats also whyThe Meta Network is a creationwe can love.Notwithstanding Colonel Burnss failure to foresee that people would use the Internet mostly to access porn and look themselves up on Google, his prescience was admirable." - Author: Jon Ronson

Quotes About Drugs And Love

"Fireworks made of glass. An explosion of dew. Crescendo. Diminuendo. Silence.There are drugs that work the same, and while I am not suggesting that our founder purchased the glassworks to get more drops, it is clear that she had the seed planted, not once, but twice, and knew already the lovely contradictory nature of glass and she did not have to be told, on the day she saw the works at Darling Harbour, that glass is a thing in disguise, an actor, is not solid at all, but a liquid, that an old sheet of glass will not only take on a royal and purplish tinge but will reveal its true liquid nature by having grown fatter at the bottom and thinner at the top, and that even while it is as frail as the ice on a Parramatta puddle, it is stronger under compression than Sydney sandstone, that it is invisible, solid, in short, a joyous and paradoxical thing, as good a material as any to build a life from." - Author: Peter Carey

Quotes About Manhattan

"It was generally agreed that a coffin-size studio on Avenue D was preferable to living in one of the boroughs. Moving from one Brooklyn or Staten Island neighborhood to another was fine, but unless you had children to think about, even the homeless saw it as a step down to leave Manhattan. Customers quitting the island for Astoria or Cobble Hill would claim to welcome the change of pace, saying it would be nice to finally have a garden or live a little closer to the airport. Theyd put a good face one it, but one could always detect an underlying sense of defeat. The apartments might be bigger and cheaper in other places, but one could never count on their old circle of friend making the long trip to attend a birthday party. Even Washington Heights was considered a stretch. People referred to it as Upstate New York, though it was right there in Manhattan." - Author: David Sedaris

Quotes About New Love Found

"Lift not the painted veil which those who liveCall Life: though unreal shapes be pictured there,And it but mimic all we would believeWith colours idly spread,--behind, lurk FearAnd Hope, twin Destinies; who ever weaveTheir shadows, oer the chasm, sightless and drear.I knew one who had lifted it--he sought,For his lost heart was tender, things to love,But found them not, alas! nor was there aughtThe world contains, the which he could approve.Through the unheeding many he did move,A splendour among shadows, a bright blotUpon this gloomy scene, a Spirit that stroveFor truth, and like the Preacher found it not" - Author: Percy Bysshe Shelley
