Quotes About Sappy Life

"Remember him, April. Even when you cant picture his face anymore, you owe each other prayers. And Im not talking about sappy, sentimental stuff. Or fantasy, either.

No one escapes calamity, but a kiss like that can last you your whole life. She looks up at April. Im not saying that you think about it all the time. It just leaves you different than it found you." - Author: Tess Callahan

Quotes About Ripple

"To experience thinking outside the brain is to enter a world of instantaneous connections that make ordinary thinking (i.e those aspects limited by the physical brain and the speed of light_ seem like some hopelessly sleepy and plodding event.

It comprehends that it has no need to fear the earthly world, and therefore, it has no need to build itself up through fame or wealth or conquest." - Author: Eben Alexander
