Raul Gutierrez Quotes

"Lies Ive told my 3 year old recently Trees talk to each other at night.All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.Tiny bears live in drain pipes. If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.Everyone knows at least one secret language.When nobody is looking, I can fly.We are all held together by invisible threads.Books get lonely too.Sadness can be eaten.I will always be there."

Emma Shane Quotes

"Only in hindsight can we see the moments where our lives skewed off-course, where we traveled down the wrong path, where the worst lies we told were the ones we told ourselves."

Richard Rhodes Quotes

"If youre afraid you cant write, the answer is to write. Every sentence you construct adds weight to the balance pan. If youre afraid of what other people will think of your efforts, dont show them until you write your way beyond your fear. If writing a book is impossible, write a chapter. If writing a chapter is impossible, write a page. If writing a page is impossible, write a paragraph. If writing a paragraph is impossible, write a sentence. If writing even a sentence is impossible, write a word and teach yourself everything there is to know about that word and then write another, connected word and see where their connection leads."

Alfred Brendel Quotes

"If I belong to a tradition, it is a tradition that makes the masterpiece tell the performer what to do, and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the composer what he ought to have composed."

Debra Messing Quotes

"I come from the New York theatre world, and I have a lot of gay male friends, so this friendship of Will and Graces isnt such a stretch."

Janine Shepherd Quotes

"I think aerobatic pilots make the best pilots because you know, youre just so confident in an aeroplane. If youre gonna get into trouble, Id rather be with someone thats a skilled aerobatic pilot."

Edward Guest Quotes

"The Gentle GardenerId like to leave but daffodils to mark my little way,To leave but tulips red and white behind me as I stray;Id like to pass away from earth and feel Id left behindBut roses and forget-me-nots for all who come to find.Id like to sow the barren spots with all the flowers of earth,To leave a path where those who come should find but gentle mirth;And when at last Im called upon to join the heavenly throngId like to feel along my way Id left no sign of wrong.And yet the cares are many and the hours of toil are few;There is not time enough on earth for all Id like to do;But, having lived and having toiled, Id like the world to findSome little touch of beauty that my soul had left behind."

Sue Miller Quotes

"You might have thought Id worry about him, about causing him pain or at least embarrassment. I simply didnt. I felt the kind of desperation, I think, that cancels the possibility of empathy. That makes you unkind. When I described myself as I was at that time to Daniel, I often said to him, "You wouldnt have liked me then."

Richard S Prather Quotes

"She was a full lipped and hipped italian tomato with Rome burning in her eyes. She had the look of a carnival in Rio, or Mardi Gras in New Orleans, or bullfights in Spain, or Saturday night in my apartment."

Michael Emerson Quotes

"There are roles that are terrifying because theyre large or you may feel that theyre out of your line, but Im never terrified once the actual work begins. Once you begin rehearsal, then its small building blocks. Its solving little problems one at a time."

Quotes About Evelina

"Young, animated, entirely off your guard, and thoughtless of consequences, Imagination took the reins; and Reason, slow-paced, though sure-footed, was unequal to the race of so eccentric and flighty a companion.

Quotes About Leaves Falling Off Trees

"Sometimes fate or life or whatever you want to call it, leaves a door a little open and you walk through it. But sometimes it locks the door and you have to find the key, or pick the lock, or knock the damn thing down. And sometimes, it doesnt even show you the door, and you have to build it yourself. But if you keep waiting for the doors to be opened for you... I think youll have a hard time finding single happiness, let alone that double portion." - Author: Gayle Forman

Quotes About Criminal Defense

"For a lawyer to do less than his utmost is, I strongly feel, a betrayal of his client. Though in criminal trials one tends to focus on the defense attorney and his client the accused, the prosecutor is also a lawyer, and he too has a client: the People. And the People are equally entitled to their day in court, to a fair and impartial trial, and to justice." - Author: Vincent Bugliosi

Quotes About Immobility

"On moonlight nights the long, straight street and dirty white walls, nowhere darkened by the shadow of a tree, their peace untroubled by footsteps or a dogs bark, glimmered in the pale recession. The silent city was no more than an assemblage of huge, inert cubes, between which only the mute effigies of great men, carapaced in bronze, with their blank stone or metal faces, conjured up a sorry semblance of what the man had been. In lifeless squares and avenues these tawdry idols lorded it under the lowering sky; stolid monsters that might have personified the rule of immobility imposed on us, or, anyhow, its final aspect, that of a defunct city in which plague, stone, and darkness had effectively silenced every voice." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Random

And because happiness does not consist in benefits of this kind, it is within everyones reach. moreover, having once been attained, it can never be lost." - Author: Jostein Gaarder

Quotes About Existence Universe

"The Universe was a damned silly place at best . . . but the least likely explanation for its existence was the no-explanation of random chance, the conceit that some abstract somethings "just happened" to be some atoms that "just happened" to get together in configurations which "just happened" to look like consistent laws and then some of these configurations "just happened" to possess self-awareness and that two such "just happened" to be the Man from Mars and the other a bald-headed old coot with Jubal himself inside. No, Jubal would not buy the "just happened" theory, popular as it was with men who called themselves scientists. Random chance was not a sufficient explanation of the Universe--in fact, random chance was not sufficient to explain random chance; the pot could not hold itself." - Author: Robert A. Heinlein
