Quotes About Country Dirt Roads

"The night was aromatic with the smell of autumn and the steely fragrance of freshly dampened blacktop. How she loved the smell of road: asphalt baking and soft in July, dirt roads with their dust-and-pollen perfume in June, country lanes spicy with the odor of crushed leaves in sober October, the sand-and-salt smell of the highway, so like an estuary, in February." - Author: Joe Hill

Quotes About Equality In Race

"What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages." - Author: Frederick Douglass

Quotes About Thy

"For many have but one resource to sustain them in their misery, and that is to think, "Circumstances have been against me, I was worthy to be something much better than I have been. I admit I have never had a great love or a great friendship; but that is because I never met a man or a woman who were worthy of it; if I have not written any very good books, it is because I had not the leisure to do so; or, if I have had no children to whom I could devote myself it is because I did not find the man I could have lived with. So there remains within me a wide range of abilities, inclinations and potentialities, unused but perfectly viable, which endow me with a worthiness that could never be inferred from the mere history of my actions." But in reality and for the existentialist, there is no love apart from the deeds of love; no potentiality of love other than that which is manifested in loving; there is no genius other than that which is expressed in works of art." - Author: Jean Paul Sartre

Quotes About Defence Mechanism

Quotes About Mondo

"Per tutta la vita sono vissuta come un pesce in un acquario, dentro la frontiera rassicurante di una vasca di vetro, dietro una barriera tanto impenetrabile quanto trasparente. Sono libera di osservare il mondo che balugina allesterno e di immaginare di farne parte, se mi fa piacere. Ma da sempre vivo come una reclusa, accerchiata dai rigidi, inflessibili confini dellesistenza che mio padre ha costruito per me, dapprima coscientemente, quando ero una ragazza, e poi involontariamente ora che si va spegnendo di giorno in giorno. Penso di essermi abituata alla vasca di vetro e sono terrorizzata allidea che, quando si romperà, quando sarò sola, precipiterò nellignoto che mi si spalancherà davanti, impotente, sperduta, annaspando nel tentativo di respirare." - Author: Khaled Hosseini

Quotes About Hearing Your Voice

"If you arent hearing your inner voice, it could mean youre overburdened or not stimulated enough, or that youve learned to shut it off because the people around you have refused to engage it. Perhaps youve had a hardening of the arteries around your soul. I believe the choices we make in our lives and the people and places surrounding us increase the volume of our inner voice, decrease it, or annihilate it entirely." - Author: Kelly Cutrone

Quotes About Not Being Good Enough

"We do not have to be ashamed of what we are. As sentient beings we have wonderful backgrounds. These backgrounds may not be particularly enlightened or peaceful or intelligent. Nevertheless, we have soil good enough to cultivate; we can plant anything in it." - Author: Chögyam Trungpa

Quotes About Elves Lord Of The Rings

"It wasnt that we didnt know history. Even if you only count the real world, we knew more history than most people. Wed been taught about cavemen and Normans and Tudors. We knew about Greeks and Romans. We knew masses of personal stories about World War II. We even knew quite a lot of family history. It just didnt connect to the landscape. And it was the landscape that formed us, that made us who we were as we grew in it, that affected everything. We thought we were living in a fantasy landscape when actually we were living in a science fictional one. In ignorance, we played our way through what the elves and giants had left us, taking the fairies possession for ownership. I named the dramroads after places in The Lord of the Rings when I should have recognized that they were from The Chrysalids." - Author: Jo Walton
