Marc Acito Quotes

"So I kept reading, just to stay alive. In fact, Id read two or three books at the same time, so I wouldnt finish one without being in the middle of another -- anything to stop me from falling into the big, gaping void. You see, books fill the empty spaces. If Im waiting for a bus, or am eating alone, I can always rely on a book to keep me company. Sometimes I think I like them even more than people. People will let you down in life. Theyll disappoint you and hurt you and betray you. But not books. Theyre better than life."

Frank Lautenberg Quotes

"Should those whose actions lead to the death or injury of a child get a free pass?"

Wendy Steiner Quotes

"In the course of aesthetic experience, the perceiver may be overwhelmed by this mere object, overcome with emotion, altered to the very roots of his being.[...] The experience of beauty involves an exchange of power, and as such, it is often disorienting, a mix of humility and exaltation, subjugation and liberation, awe and mystified pleasure.[...] Many people, fearing a pleasure they cannot control, have vilified beauty as a siren or a whore. Since at one time or another though, everyone answers to her call, it would be well if we could recognize the meaning of our succumbing as a valuable response, an opportunity for self-revelation rather than defeat.[...] It entails a flexibility and empathy toward Others in general and the capacity to see ourselves as both active and passive without fearing that we will be diminished in the process."

June Squibb Quotes

"I always made a decent living."

Marianne Morea Quotes

"Close your mouth Lily, you look like a codfish.""I cant help it. This place looks like something out of medieval times. Im surprised there arent rushes on the floor or half-dressed serving wenches carrying trenchers of food.""Read Harlequin much?""Shut up. Theres nothing wrong with romance novels. You could learn something from them you know."Seans mouth curved into a slow, seductive grin. He let his fingers drift casually along the side of her arm, deliberately grazing the edge of her breast. "Could I now?"

Marc Norman Quotes

"I - will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all."

Sarah MacLean Quotes

"When you father dies! What then?"Lord Needham looked up from his pheasant. "I beg your pardon?"Lady Needham waved one hand in the air as though she hadnt time to think of her husbands feelings, instead prodding, "He shant live forever, Penelope! What then?"Penelope could not think of why this was in any way relevant. "Well, that shall be very sad, I imagine."Lady Needham shook her head in frustration. "Penelope!""Mother, I honestly have no idea what you are implying.""Who will take care of you? When your father dies?""Is Father planning to die soon?""No," her father said."One never knows!" Tears were welling in the marchioness eyes. "Oh, for Gods-" Lord Needham had had enough. "Im not dying. And I take no small amount of offence in the fact the thought simply rolled off your tongue."

Dorothy Parker Quotes

"I dont know," she said. "We used to squabble a lot when we were going together and then engaged and everything, but I thought everything would be so different as soon as you were married. And now I feel so sort of strange and everything. I feel so sort of alone."

Miko Sebastienz Quotes

Quotes About Nine Eleven

"In a sexual double standard as to who receives consumer protection, it seems that if what you do is done to women in the name of beauty, you may do what you like. It is illegal to claim that something grows hair, or makes you taller, or restores virility, if it does not. It is difficult to imagine that the baldness remedy Minoxidil would be on the market if it had killed nine French and at least eleven American men. In contrast, the long-term effects of Retin-A are still unknown--Dr. Stuart Yusps of the National Cancer Institute refers to its prescription as "a human experiment"--and the Food and Drug Administration has not approved it yet dermatologists are prescribing it to women at a revenue of over $150 million a year." - Author: Naomi Wolf

Quotes About Dryness

"Repetition and familiarity work. What is repeated becomes familiar, and this becomes a part of us. Our own culture understands this, but alas, not always the church. Far too many equate ritual with spiritual dryness. True, ritual and liturgy can be dead--even using the terms can raise hackles--but only when the significance and power of those rituals are forgotten. Spiritual death is not a property of ritual itself. To the contrary, ritual has always been and will always be a means of securing for future generations the power and reality of the gospel." (Peter Enns, Exodus, page 262)." - Author: Peter Enns

Quotes About Being Hollow

"His emotion on entering the room, in seeing her altered looks, and in receiving the pale hand which she immediately held out to him, was such as, in Elinors conjecture, must arise from something more than his affection for Marianne, or the consciousness of its being known to others; and she soon discovered, in his melancholy eye and varying complexion as he looked at her sister, the probable recurrence of many past scenes of misery to his mind, brought back by that resemblance between Marianne and Eliza already acknowledged, and now strengthened by the hollow eye, the sickly skin, the posture of reclining weakness; and the warm acknowledgment of peculiar obligation." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Glitter And Love

"She let the relaxing song waft over and through her as she lost herself in everything around her: the millions of stars glittering above, the soft quilt beneath her, the man whose hand slipped warmly into hers. And she began to understand something she hadnt only a few short minutes before; she began to feel a certain, undeniable truth seeping into her skin, her muscles, her very bones. And when the song came to its sweet, peaceful conclusion, she continued peering up at the sky even as she leaned her head over to rest it on Luckys shoulder. And she whispered, "You love me." He kept gazing upward, too, his answer coming softly. "Yeah, I do." And it sounded ... like it wasnt a surprise to him at all. The new knowledge made Tessas skin tingle even as her body filled with warmth. And she pulled back just slightly to peer over at him, this man who loved her. He hadnt put it into words, but he hadnt needed to---because hed shown her, in so many sweet ways." - Author: Toni Blake
