Quotes About Strobe Lights

"Youth leaders, are you holding aloft our standards, or have you compromised them for the lowest common denominator in order to appease the deceived or vile within the Church? Are the dances and music in your cultural halls virtuous, lovely, praiseworthy, and of good report (Articles of Faith 13), or do they represent a modern Sodom with short skirts, loud beat, strobe lights, and darkness?" - Author: Ezra Taft Benson

Quotes About Borrowing Things

"When the clock stops on a life, all things emanating from it become precious, finite, and cordoned off for preservation. Each aspect of the dead person is removed from the flux of the everyday, which, of course, is where we miss him most. The quarantine around death makes it feel unlucky and wrong--a freakish incursion--and the dead, thus quarantined, come to seem more dead than they already are.... Borrowing from the dead is a way of keeping them engaged in lifes daily transactions--in other words, alive." - Author: Jennifer Egan

Quotes About Fascination And Love

"The potion drunk by lovers is prepared by no one but themselves. The potion is the sum of ones whole existence. Every word spoken in the past accumulated forms and color in the self. What flows through the veins besides blood is the distillation of every act committed, the sediment of all the visions, wishes, dreams, and experiences. All the past emotions converge to tint the skin and flavor the lips, to regulate the pulse and produce crystals in the eyes.The fascination exerted by one human being over another is not what he emits of his personality at the present instant of encounter but a summation of his entire being which gives off this powerful drug capturing the fancy and attachment.No moment of charm without long roots in the past, no moment of charm is born on bare soil, a careless accident of beauty, but is the sum of great sorrows, growths, and efforts.But love, the great narcotic, was the hothouse in which all the selves burst into their fullest bloom . . ." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Being Reckless

"...I had grown accustomed to life being interesting and adventure ridden and, rather childishly, I refused to believe that this must necessarily come to an end and that the rest of my life should be a sort of penance for all the reckless, irresponsible, and immensely fun things Id done before." - Author: J. Maarten Troost

Quotes About Miss Emily

"You see, because [Norfolk is] stuck out here on the east, on this hump jutting into the sea, its not on the way to anywhere. People going north and south, they bypass it altogether. For that reason, its a peaceful corner of England, rather nice. But its also something of a lost corner.Someone claimed after the lesson that Miss Emily had said Norfolk was Englands lost corner because that was were all the lost property found in the country ended up.Ruth said one evening, looking out at the sunset, that when we lost something precious, and wed looked and looked and still couldnt find it, then we didnt have to be completely heartbroken. We still had that last bit of comfort, thinking one day, when we were grown up, and we were free to travel the country, we could always go and find it again in Norfolk." - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
