Rob Thomas Matchbox Twenty From Mad World Quotes

"From Mad World: An Oral History of the New Wave Artists and Songs That Defined the 1980s: Michael [Hutchence] is hands down one of the greatest frontmen in music. The style, the voice—all of it. Any way that I was ever influenced by him really comes down to small, pale imitations compared to the real thing. There is a fearlessness about him. Watching him at Wembley Stadium with 70,000 people, he looks as comfortable as if he were in his own living room."

Ken Sande Quotes

"It is easier to accept your limits if you have a biblical view of success. The world defines success in terms of what a person possesses, controls, or accomplishes. God defines success in terms of faithful obedience to his will. The world asks, What results have your achieved? God asks, Were you faithful to my ways?"

Quotes About Challenges And Faith

"To commit herself to becoming "an apostle of Joy" when humanly speaking she might have felt at the brink of despair, was heroic indeed. She could do so because her joy was rooted in the certitude of the ultimate goodness of Gods loving plan for her. And though her faith in this truth did not touch her soul with consolation, she ventured to meet the challenges of life with a smile. Her one lever was her blind trust in God." - Author: Brian Kolodiejchuk

Quotes About Azazael

"« Ecco, cè una cosa che devo dirti », cominciai guardandolo in quegli occhi cristallini, « io ti amo Azazael, non ho mai amato così nessuno prima dora. Sei arrivato come un fulmine a ciel sereno nella mia vita e lhai stravolta. Mi hai cambiata, mi hai fatto tornare a credere in quel sentimento che mai avrei pensato facesse per me », dissi tutto dun fiato, il cuore che batteva forte. Non dovetti attendere molto la risposta: alzandosi di scatto, con due falcate mi raggiunse prendendomi fra le braccia. « Per millenni ho atteso che queste parole venissero pronunciate, pensavo che non le avrei mai sentite da parte di nessuno ed invece eccomi qui », stringendomi ancora più forte, « ti amo, mia piccola Aurora splendente », disse prima di baciarmi dolcemente sulle labbra, beh, almeno inizialmente, in fin dei conti stiamo sempre parlando di Azazael no?" - Author: Diletta Brizzi

Quotes About Puppet Government

"How about this? Hong Kong had been appropriated by British drug pushers in the 1840s. We wanted Chinese silk, porcelain, and spices. The Chinese didnt want our clothes, tools, or salted herring, and who can blame them? They had no demand. Our solution was to make a demand, by getting large sections of the populace addicted to opium, a drug which the Chinese government had outlawed. When the Chinese understandably objected to this arrangement, we kicked the fuck out of them, set up a puppet government in Peking that hung signs on parks saying NO DOGS OR CHINESE, and occupied this corner of their country as an import base. Fucking godawful behavior, when you think about it. And we accuse them of xenophobia. It would be like the Colombians invading Washington in the early twenty-first century and forcing the White House to legalize heroin. And saying, "Dont worry, well show ourselves out, and take Florida while were at it, okay? Thanks very much." - Author: David Mitchell
