Quotes About Bride Beauty

"He wondered if he would live to see the blossom on his apple trees and felt an answering pop inside himself. Ah, so it would not be long now. It began to snow lightly, the last flakes to fall before the spring. He put on his wedding finery, the clothes he had worn so long ago when he married his beloved Pamposh, and which he had kept all this time wrapped in tissue paper in a trunk. As a bridegroom he went outdoors and the snowflakes caressed his grizzled cheeks. His mind was alert, he was ambulatory and nobody was waiting for him with a club. He had his body and his mind and it seemed he was to be spared a brutal end. That at least was kind. He went into his apple orchard, seated himself cross-legged beneath a tree, closed his eyes, heard the verses of the Rig-Veda fill the world with beauty and ceased upon the midnight with no pain." - Author: Salman Rushdie

Then you have those like my father. The kind of man who could walk into an antiwar monastery and in ten minutes have the monks at each others throats." - Dancer Hauk" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Arbus

"Incluso la peor de las situaciones, si en tal nos hallamos, se descompone en elementos simples entre los cuales habrá algunos a los que asirse, como las ramas de un arbusto que creciese en la costa, para oponer resistencia a los remolinos que nos tiran hacia el fondo. Esa grieta, ese islote y esa rama nos mantienen en la superficie de la existencia." - Author: Ryszard Kapuściński
