"Chances are if you find yourself caught up in a political foofaraw at work, or in some family squabble at home, its because someone else is succeeding in convincing you that his problem is your problem.

Quotes About Sheri

"Mr. Buckley, let me explain it this way. And Ill do so very carefully & slowly so that even you will understand it. If I was the sheriff, I would not have arrested him. If I was on the grand jury, I would not have indicted him. If I was the judge, I would not try him. If I was the D.A., I would not prosecute him. If I was on the trial jury, I would vote to give him a key to the city, a plaque to hang on his wall, & I would send him home to his family. And, Mr. Buckley, if my daughter is ever raped, I hope I have the guts to do what he did." - Author: John Grisham

Quotes About Moeder

"Uit hoeveel verdriet is ons leven opgebouwd?Uit hoeveel verdriet dat te vermijden is?Soms denk ik wel eens dat we wanneer we doodgaan niet, zoals je altijd hoort, ons hele leven weer voorbij zien komen, maar slechts een klein deel: de uitgebleven blijken van liefde, de niet-gegeven knuffels, het medeleven dat we een ander hebben onthouden, de te lang volgehouden, nutteloze boosheid, de alleen door zichzelf gevoede boosheid. In de laatste momenten van haar leven had mijn moeder, dat weet ik zeker, mijn vader wel een complete kennel willen schenken. Maar toen was het te laat. Te laat. Pas als we ouder worden realiseren we ons de ernst van sommige dingen die we hebben gezegd, en alles waarin we tekortgeschoten zijn - uit oppervlakkigheid, egoïsme, haast - begint dan op ons hart te drukken. Maar onze tijd is al vervlogen en we kunnen niet meer terug." - Author: Susanna Tamaro

Quotes About Freer

"As you grow in true spiritual power and understanding you will actually find that many outer rules and regulations will become unnecessary; but this will be because you have really risen above them; never, never, because you have fallen below them. This point in your development, where your understanding of Truth enables you to dispense with certain outer props and regulations, is the Spiritual Coming of Age. When you really are no longer spiritually a minor, you will cease to need some of the outer observances that formerly seemed indispensable; but your resulting life will be purer, truer, freer, and less selfish than it was before; and that is the test." - Author: Emmet Fox

Quotes About Willows

"One does not argue about The Wind in the Willows. The young man gives it to the girl with whom he is in love, and, if she does not like it, asks her to return his letters. The older man tries it on his nephew, and alters his will accordingly. The book is a test of character. We cant criticize it, because it is criticizing us. But I must give you one word of warning. When you sit down to it, dont be so ridiculous as to suppose that you are sitting in judgment on my taste, or on the art of Kenneth Grahame. You are merely sitting in judgment on yourself. You may be worthy: I dont know, But it is you who are on trial." - Author: A.A. Milne

Quotes About Harvest Festival

"Autumn. Its crispness, its anticipation, its melancholia, its cool breezes replacing summers heat. Its long days in the field, a harvest festival when works done, a cheering crowd in a football stadium, chrysanthemums punctuating a somber landscape. Its Halloween highjinx, pumpkins grinning toothy smiles, the crack of pecan pressed against pecan. Its the first curls of woodsmoke, fresh blisters from pushing a rake. Its crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And its very, very welcome." - Author: Good Housekeeping Magazine
