Adam Hall Quotes

"A gun is psychologically a penis-substitute and a symbol of power: the age-range of toy-shop clientele begins at about six or seven, rises sharply just before puberty and declines soon after the discovery of the phallus and its promise of power. From then on, guns are for kids and for the effete freaks and misfits who must seek psycho-orgasmic relief by shooting pheasants."

Quotes About Milk

"The racial problems that consumed Guitar were the most boring of all. He wondered what they would do if they didnt have black and white problems to talk about. Who would they be if they couldnt describe the insults, the violence, and oppression that their lives (and the television news) were made up of? If they didnt have Kennedy or Elijah to quarrel about? They excused themselves for everything. Every job of work undone, every bill unpaid, every illness, every death was The Mans fault. And Guitar was becoming just like them—except he made no excuse for himself—just agreed, it seemed to Milkman, with every grievance he heard." - Author: Toni Morrison

Quotes About Coraje

"Quiero esperar en silencio la séptima ola. Si, aquí cuentan la historia indómita de la séptima ola. Las primeras seis son previsibles y equilibradas. Se condicionan unas a otras, no deparan sorpresas. Mantienen la continuidad. Pero, !cuidado con la séptima ola¡ La séptima es imprevisible. Durante mucho tiempo pasa inadvertida, participa en el monótono proceso, se adapta a sus predecesoras. Pero a veces estalla. Siempre ella, siempre la séptima. Porque es despreocupada, inocente, rebelde, barre con todo, lo cambia todo. Para ella no existe el antes, solo el ahora. Y después todo es distinto. ¿Mejor o peor? Eso solo pueden decirlo quienes estuvieron arrastrados por ella, quienes tuvieron el coraje de enfrentarla, de dejarse cautivar..." - Author: Daniel Glattauer

Quotes About Love And Time Spent Together

"And shed also found Logan again. Now he was her … what? New-old boyfriend? Lover? Skype buddy? Pen pal with benefits? Whatever his title, his e-mails filled her inbox. Sometimes he sent five a day, short and quipping. Other times he sent longer, more serious ones. She kept her tone light when she replied. Thatd always been her MO—a joke, a jab. A way to deflect from what she was really feeling. A way to keep the nonstop ache of missing him from becoming too painful to survive. And honestly, what was there to say that would come close to what she felt? The moments theyd spent together before hed shipped out on his latest naval tour had been the most peaceful she could remember—even with her anxiety about her dad. Itd been the first time shed felt complete in a long time. And then, just like that, he was gone again." - Author: Rob Thomas

Quotes About Richesse

"Eau, tu nas ni goût, ni couleur, ni arôme, on ne peut pas te définir, on te goûte sans te connaître. Tu nes pas nécessaire à la vie, tu es la vie ! Tu nous pénètres dun plaisir qui ne sexplique point par le sens. Avec toi rentrent en nous tous les pouvoirs auxquels nous avions renoncé. Par ta grâce, souvrent en nous toutes les sources taries de notre cœur. Tu es la plus grande richesse qui soit au monde, et tu es aussi la plus délicate, toi si pure au ventre de la Terre. On peut mourir sur une source deau magnésienne. On peut mourir à deux pas dun lac deau salée. On peut mourir malgré deux litres de rosée qui retiennent en suspend quelques sels. Tu nacceptes point de mélange, tu ne supportes point laltération, tu es une ombrageuse divinité. Mais tu répands en nous un bonheur infiniment simple." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Therefore do not consider thy capacity and merit, but rely upon the infinite Bounty and trust to His Highness the Almighty." - Author: Baháulláh
