Martin Manley Quotes

"I never bought into the whole "second amendment" argument as it relates to the 21st century. Originally, it was put into place for the simple reason that our forefathers were fighting or had just fought off a government that threatened them with weapons. If those in the revolution had no weapons, there would be no United States of America, but rather New England of the New World. So, I understood why they thought it was so important."

Carla Speed McNeil Quotes

"The force of your gaze has a weight. Even sunlight resting on the ground weighs something. Your attention presses against its object, your eye projects it like a headlight.Theres a flip side to it. Learn to go down inside yourself, dim the force of your presence. Peoples eyes will skate right over you.Theyll see you; they just wontnotice you. This works even if theyre looking for you."

Quotes About Silently Waiting

"As they gently lowered it into the earth, all stared silently at the coffin but one: a young woman of twenty-five who glanced absentmindedly into the distance where an unknown figure stood – watching, waiting, his face buried in the shadow of his hat. Whether by intuition or paranoia she could not tell, but the presence of the man troubled her and her eyes were fixed on his motionless body and would not stir. Tourists rarely came to a town as small and uneventful as theirs, let alone to visit a funeral where they did not introduce themselves and only beheld the spectacle from afar." - Author: Renate Linnenkoper

Quotes About Horse Training

"The jeers that had risen as Baraks and Greldiks ships had been manoeuvred onto their wheeled carriages turned rather quickly into angry mutterings as the carriages, pulled by teams of Algar horses, rolled effortlessly toward the escarpment past men straining with every ounce of strength to move their ships a few inches at a time. To leave it all to artistry, Barak and Greldik ordered their men to lounge indolently on the decks of their ships, drinking ale and playing dice.King Anheg stared very hard at his impudently grinning cousin as the big ship rolled past. His expression was profoundly offended. "Thats going too far!" he exploded, jerking off his dented crown and throwing it down on the ground." - Author: David Eddings

Quotes About Driving Laws

"Does affirmative action place minority students in colleges where theyre likely to fail while depriving other applicants of the chance to attend the most challenging schools where they are capable of succeeding? Does rent control drive up the cost of housing, depriving property owners of the same opportunity to profit as any other investor while driving down the quality and quantity of the housing stock? Do minimum wage laws reduce the number of entry-level jobs, making it harder to escape from poverty? Because compassion, by its nature, subordinates doing good to feeling good, these are questions the warm-hearted rarely pursue." - Author: William Voegeli
