Quotes About Pairar

"Meu caro amigo (...), a vida é infinitamente mais estranha que qualquer coisa que a mente do homem possa inventar. Não nos atreveríamos a conceber coisas que são, afinal, lugares-comuns da existência. Se pudéssemos sair a voar de mão dada por aquela janela, pairar sobre esta cidade, tirar cuidadosamente os telhados e espreitar as coisas esquisitas que estão a passar-se , as estranhas coincidências, as maquinações, os objectivos cruzados, as maravilhosas cadeias de acontecimentos que vão funcionando durante gerações e levam aos resultados mais outrés, a ficção tornar-se-ia, com os seus convencionalismos e conclusões previstas, muito cediça e sem interesse." - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

Quotes About Glamour Models

"The mantle of glamour has been taken from the women and given to the men. The women toil in their shadows, plain and ordinary-looking. So that transition has left a void. It is a void for drop-dead, impossible, over-the-top glamour. Supermodels fill that void. The only thing they have to do is work the runway, sweetie, and refuse to get out of bed for less than ten thousand dollars." - Author: RuPaul

Und wenn du glühenden Herzens Ermengard umarmst, bist du – aus Gründen, die dir dereinst im Himmel geoffenbart werden sollen – deines Gelübdes an Eleonora entbunden.«" - Author: Edgar Allan Poe

For example, James Watt developed the first efficient steam engine long before science established the equivalence between mechanical heat and energy." - Author: James Watt

Quotes About Articles

"In every single scenario that you step into, in life, it is like stepping into a body of water and you need to stop and really stand there to feel whats going on in that water— the temperature, the direction of the current, the particles in the water that brush up onto your skin, you need to close your eyes and inhale deeply to distinguish the scents that come from it. I have always done this, since I was a small girl, being aware of and feeling every atom thats in there. Im a Water Bender. I bend the water; the water does not bend me." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
