[I Wasn't The Brightest Kid In School. I Was A Backbencher Troubling The Frontbencher, And Eventually I Failed In My 10th Grade. But Then In Higher Secondary, There Were Only Three People Who Got First Division In Arts, And I Was One Of Them. So This Tells You, Where You Put Your Mind And Heart Into, That's Where You Go.]

William Gerhardie Quotes

"No fiction is good fiction unless it is true to life, and yet no life is worth relating unless it be a life out of the ordinary; and then it seems improbable like fiction."

Helmut Newton Quotes

Leslie Ford Quotes

"If he hadnt been looking at Phil and had been looking at Viola Kersey he would have been a surprised young man. There was a look of startled dismay on her face as she realized what shed done. And she didnt like it. For one instant the appealing little woman looked for all the world like the household variety of virago whos sweet as all get out as long as guests are present and ready to snatch the family bald-headed as soon as the door is closed."

Swami Satchidananda Quotes

"[O]ur own bodies are changing every second. Yet we take the body to be our Self; and, speaking in terms of it, we say, "I am hungry" or "I am lame"; "I am black" or "I am white." These are all just the conditions of the body. We touch the truth when we say, "My body aches," implying the body belongs to us and that therefore we are not that. (87)"

Yusef Lateef Quotes

"When the soul looks out of its body, it should see only beauty in its path. These are the sights we must hold in mind, in order to move to a higher place."

Alvin Plantinga Quotes

"The Christian philosopher has a perfect right to the point of view and prephilosophical assumptions he brings to philosophic work; the fact that these are not widely shared outside the Christian or theistic community is interesting but fundamentally irrelevant."

Quotes About Everyone Else Being Happy

"It is of course perfectly natural to assume that everyone else is having a far more exciting time than you. Human beings, for instance, have a phrase that describes this phenomenon, ‘The other mans grass is always greener.The Shaltanac race of Broopkidren 13 had a similar phrase, but since their planet is somewhat eccentric, botanically speaking, the best they could manage was, ‘The other Shaltanacs joopleberry shrub is always a more mauvy shade of pinky-russet. And so the expression soon fell into disuse, and the Shaltanacs had little option but to become terribly happy and contented with their lot, much to the surprise of everyone else in the Galaxy who had not realized that the best way not to be unhappy is not to have a word for it." - Author: Douglas Adams

Quotes About Hardships Of War

"To her the earth was composed of hardships and insults. She felt instant admiration for a man who openly defied it. She thought that if the grim angel of death should clutch his heart, Pete would shrug his shoulders and say, "Oh, evryting goes."She anticipated that he would come again shortly. She spent some of her weeks pay in the purchase of flowered cretonne for a lambrequin. She made it with infinite care, and hung it to the slightly careening mantel over the stove in the kitchen. She studied it with painful anxiety from different points in the room. She wanted it to look well on Sunday night when, perhaps, Jimmies friend would come. On Sunday night, however, Pete did not appear.Afterwards the girl looked at it with a sense of humiliation. She was now convinced that Pete was superior to admiration for lambrequins." - Author: Stephen Crane

Quotes About Aislados

"El bohío de la loma, bajo sus alas de paja, siente el frescor mañanero y abre sus ojos al alba. Vuela el pájara del nido. Brinca el gallo de la rama. A los becerros, aislados de las tetas de las vacas, les corre por el hocico leche de la madrugada. Las mariposas pululan —rubí, zafir, oro, plata...—: flores huérfanas que rondan buscando a las madres ramas..." - Author: Esmeralda Santiago

Quotes About Buddhists

"Over and over these organizations tell America that family, above all, is what Christianity is about. Devotion to ones family is, indeed, a wonderful thing. Yet it is hardly something to brag about. For all except the most pathologically self-absorbed, love for ones parents, spouse, and children comes naturally. Jesus did not make it his business to affirm these ties; he didnt have to. Jews feel them, Buddhists feel them, Confucians and Zoroastrians and atheists feel them. Christianity is not about reinforcing such natural bonds and instinctive sentiments. Rather, Christianity is about challenging them and helping us to see all of humankind as our family. It seems clear that if Jesus had wanted to affirm the "traditional family" in the way that Pat Robertson claims, he would not have lived the way he did." - Author: Bruce Bawer

Quotes About Thrill

"The man who knelt before her would have sprung from her needles, even down the ghostly flecks of silver in his hair.

Valente
