Agnes Martin Quotes

"To progress in life you must give up the things you do not like. Give up doing the things that you do not like to do. You must find the things that you do like. The things that are acceptable to your mind."

Titus Flavius Clemens Quotes

Evanescence Quotes

"I like to use two basic elements for my clothing: rock... you know, metal and chains and stuff - mixed with fairies and drama and Victorian clothing - fantasy."

Emma Bull Quotes

"It occurs to me to wonder: do I believe in any god, or even positively not believe, as James does? I believe in systems and methods. I believe in the beauties of philosophy and poetry. I believe that the work we do and leave behind us is our afterlife; and I believe that history lies, but sometimes so well that I cant bring myself to resent it. I believe that truth is beauty, but not, Im afraid, the reverse. It doesnt seem sufficient to sustain one in lifes rigorous moments. Perhaps I shall embrace Islam. Its standards for poetry seem very high."

Quotes About Grandparents Birthday

"How stupid. My mom and dad had lost each other, and for what? So they could fit better at their parents tables at Christmas and Passover? So their brothers and sisters could be comfortable? The families who had worked so hard to tear them apart had gone smugly back to their own lives after it was over. I didnt see any of my grandparents more than once a year. I got colorful birthday cards with twenty-­dollar bills in them from my aunts and uncles on my birthday.Meanwhile, my parents spent their lives so lonely. Dad wandered, seeking home in a mistresss Mimmy-­canted face. Mimmy waited, her lamp trimmed, for a day that never came.Meanwhile, all theyd ever wanted was alive inside the other." - Author: Joshilyn Jackson

Quotes About God With Verses

"In my tradition, God revealed Himself in words and lives in stories and, no, you cannot touch or even see Him. The Word, in Judaism, was never made flesh. The closest God came to embodiment was in the Temple in Jerusalem...But the Temple was destroyed. In Judaism, the flesh became words. Words were the traditional refuge of the Jewish people - Yochanan ben Zakkai led a yeshiva, my father became a professor. And little boys, in the Middle Ages, ate cakes with verses inscribed on them, an image I find deeply moving and, somehow, deeply depressing. This might help explain a certain melancholy quality books in general, for all their bright allure, have always had for me. As many times as I went down to my parents library for comfort, I would find myself standing in front of the books and could almost feel them turning back into trees, failing me somehow." - Author: Jonathan Rosen
