[I Was A Woman In A Man's World. I Was A Democrat In A Republican Administration. I Was An Intellectual In A World Of Bureaucrats. I Talked Differently. This May Have Made Me A Bit Like An Ink Blot.]

Fabiola Simoes Quotes

"Então você cresce, amadurece, e aprende_ a duras penas_ que o mundo não é feito de açúcar, que os adultos nem sempre detêm a verdade_ quase nunca detêm..._ que algumas coisas não saem do jeito que a gente quer. Mas a dor do crescimento aparece mesmo quando você descobre que algo em que você acreditava deixou de existir. É assustador ter que reformular tudo aquilo que te constituía e não constitui mais.Temos que estar dispostos a abrir mão de nossas crenças, de nossos planos tão reais, palpáveis, terrenos... para acreditar numa nova realidade.E vamos descobrindo que nada é tão real, palpável ou terreno. Que tudo pode mudar num piscar de olhos, enquanto nos apegamos ao que é conhecido.Percebemos que vivemos, mas não pertencemos. Amamos, mas não controlamos. Temos fé no invisível, mas nunca estamos prontos..."

Quotes About My Newborn Son

"I got the idea from our familys plant book. The place where we recorded things you cannot trust to memory. The page begins with the persons picture. A photo if we can find it. If not, a sketch or a painting by Peeta. Then, in my most careful handwriting, come all the details it would be a crime to forget. Lady licking Prims cheek. My fathers laugh. Peetas father with the cookies. The colour of Finnicks eyes. What Cinna would do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poised on her toes, arms slightly extended, like bird about to take flight. On and on. We seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count. Haymitch finally joins us, contributing twenty-three years of tributes he was forced to mentor. Additions become smaller. An old memory that surfaces. A late promise preserved between the pages. Strange bits of happiness, like the photo of Finnick and Annies newborn son." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Clarity And Confusion

"You are so terribly nimble, so clever. I distrust your cleverness. You make a wonderful pattern, everything is in its place, it looks convincingly clear, too clear. And meanwhile, where are you? Not on the clear surface of your ideas, but you have already sunk deeper, into darker regions, so that one only thinks one has been given all your thoughts, one only imagines you have emptied yourself in that clarity. But there are layers and layers -- youre bottomless, unfathomable. Your clearness is deceptive. You are the thinker who arouses most confusion in me, most doubt, most disturbance." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Disfigurement

"I found a brief piece of by Antonio Vivaldi around this time which became my ‘Pinhead Mood Music. Called Al Santo Sepolcro (At The Holy Sepulchre), it opens more like a piece of modern orchestral music, and although it it moves toward Vivaldis familiar harmonies, there is always the threat that it will fall back into dissonance. The piece progresses in an exquisite agony, poised on a knife edge between beauty and disfigurement, joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain. Perfect." - Author: Doug Bradley

Quotes About Abcs

"designer can inject the most artistic flair. The word "ampersand" didnt come into being until the nineteenth century.

Quotes About Muslim Prayer

"Every time I saw Muslim masses bowed in prayer or the Catholic faithful gathered all I saw was fear. Moronically nodding Hasidim, paint-throwing Hindus, shimmying and jabbering Evangelicals, they were all scared shitless this was all there was. Even the Buddhists (whose crinkled tee-heeing lamas always made me want to slap them) were terrified of their own flesh and blood, needed some disembodied desire-free fairyland to shoot for." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Homophobic Bullying

"...the first murmurings from the liberal part of the U.S.A. that we were somehow in the wrong, brutal killers, bullying other countries; that we who put our lives on the line for our nation at the behest of our government should somehow be charged with murder for shooting our enemy. Its an insidious progression, the criticisms of the U.S. Armed Forces from politicians and from the liberal media, which knows nothing of combat, nothing of our training, and nothing of the mortal dangers we face out there on the front line." - Author: Marcus Luttrell
