Greg Brenneman Quotes

"I pass on any opportunity I see that I cant add value on."

Ferdinand Cohn Quotes

"The more formidable the contradiction between inexhaustible life-joy and inevitable fate, the greater the longing which reveals itself in the kingdom of poetry and in the self-created world of dreams hopes to banish the dark power of reality. The gods enjoy eternal youth, and the search for the means of securing it was one of the occupations of the heroes of mythology and the sages, as it was of real adventurers in the middle ages and more recent times. . . . But the fountain of youth has not been found, and can not be found if it is sought in any particular spot on the earth. Yet it is no fable, no dream-picture; it requires no adept to find it: it streams forth inexhaustible in all living nature."

Ann B Keller Quotes

Charles Sturridge Quotes

"Part of the power of all storytelling is reassurance, offering hope to those sat in the darkness, that good can succeed and wrongdoing fail."

Jenny Downham Quotes

"We said wed be friends.He looks confused. Yeah.I dont want to be.Theres space between us, and in that space theres darkness. I take another step, so close that we share a breath. The same one. In and out.Tess, he says. I know its a warning, but I dont care.Whats the worst thing that can happen?Itll hurt, he says.It already hurts.He nods very slowly. And its like theres a hole in time, as if everything stops and in this one minute, where we look at each other so close, is spread out between us. As he leans towards me, I feel a strange warmth filtering through me. I forget that my brain is full of every sad face at every window Ive ever passed."

Romy Schneider Quotes

"One can remain eternally young if, each day, one grows rich by marvelous moments."

Quotes About Because I Can

"Maud laughed, drily. Roland said, "And then, really, what is it, what is this arcane power we have, when we see that everything is human sexuality? Its really powerlessness."Impotence," said Maud, leaning over, interested.I was avoiding that word, because that precisely isnt the point. We are so knowing. And all weve found out, is primitive sympathetic magic. Infantile polymorphous perversity. Everything relates to us and were so imprisoned in ourselves - we cant see things." - Author: A.S. Byatt

Quotes About Eating Together With Family

"Love between women could take on a new shape in the late nineteenth century because the feminist movement succeeded both in opening new jobs for women, which would allow them independence, and in creating a support group so that they would not feel isolated and outcast when they claimed their independence. … The wistful desire of Clarissa Harlowes friend, Miss Howe, "How charmingly might you and I live together," in the eighteenth century could be realised in the last decades of the nineteenth century. If Clarissa Harlowe had lived about a hundred and fifty years later, she could have gotten a job that would have been appropriate for a woman of her class. With the power given to her by independence and the consciousness of a support group, Clarissa as a New Woman might have turned her back on both her family and Lovelace, and gone to live "charmingly" with Miss Howe. Many women did." - Author: Lillian Faderman

Quotes About Tree

"He knows that when she passes, a grief will rip through him unlike anything he has ever known. Preparing for it doesnt help. He just knows it will come. It is like realizing you are sailing a boat across an ocean and soon you will find the other shore- it will be just you and acres of dry, blinding white sand. There may be trees on that island, and sun, and food, but none of it will feel or taste right, because you will stand there and realize: I am alone." - Author: Rene Denfeld

Quotes About Sun Goddess

"The dark breaks wide in fragile rays. Dawn on Ithiss-Tor is more subtle than other sunrises. I have lost count of the worlds where I have stood and watched the light rise, peeling away the sky, sometimes in quiet colors, and sometimes in raw, violent slashes, as if the goddess I dont believe in has cut her veins. And sometimes, as on Gehenna, the sky changes not at all, just endless night, or endless brilliance--and after a time, the constant uniformity makes you feel as if you are the thing that must give way." - Author: Ann Aguirre

Quotes About Salty

"Dangerous as a lightning strike, as lethal as a pair of crisscrossing short swords, William whispered, "Youre about to find out how your liver tastes, my friend.""I have tasted it already," Zacharel said, his voice its usual monotone. The snowflakes began to fall in earnest, tiny at first, but growing in diameter. An arctic wind blustered around him. "It was a bit salty."How the hell was a guy supposed to respond to that?Apparently William didnt know, either, because he gaped at the angel. Then, "Maybe if you added a little pepper?"O-kay. It was official. William had an answer for everything." - Author: Gena Showalter

Quotes About Nowy

"Farrell had seen pure white drunkenness before, but not often enough to recognize it at sight. He knew the thing itself, however--the freight train rattling and lurching comically from hilarity to slobbering sorrow, picking up speed as it passed through wild, aimless anger straight on into wild sickness; and then, running smoothly and almost silently now, into a dark place of shaking and sweating and crying, and out again with no warning to where a dazzling snowy light made everything very still." - Author: Peter S. Beagle

Quotes About Socorro
