Quotes About Bartering

"No, you are not worthy of the love which I have devoted to you. I knew all along that the prize I had set my life on was not worth the winning; that I was a fool, with fond fancies, too, bartering away my all of truth and ardour against your little feeble remnant of love. I will bargain no more: I withdraw." - Author: William Makepeace Thackeray

Quotes About Summer Fun

"Im completely library educated. Ive never been to college. I went down to the library when I was in grade school in Waukegan, and in high school in Los Angeles, and spent long days every summer in the library. I used to steal magazines from a store on Genesee Street, in Waukegan, and read them and then steal them back on the racks again. That way I took the print off with my eyeballs and stayed honest. I didnt want to be a permanent thief, and I was very careful to wash my hands before I read them. But with the library, its like catnip, I suppose: you begin to run in circles because theres so much to look at and read. And its far more fun than going to school, simply because you make up your own list and you dont have to listen to anyone. When I would see some of the books my kids were forced to bring home and read by some of their teachers, and were graded on—well, what if you dont like those books?" - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Indian Summer

"The West Indian is not exactly hostile to change, but he is not much inclined to believe in it. This comes from a piece of wisdom that his climate of eternal summer teaches him. It is that, under all the parade of human effort and noise, today is like yesterday, and tomorrow will be like today; that existence is a wheel of recurring patterns from which no one escapes; that all anybody does in this life is live for a while and then die for good, without finding out much; and that therefore the idea is to take things easy and enjoy the passing time under the sun. The white people charging hopefully around the islands these days in the noon glare, making deals, bulldozing airstrips, hammering up hotels, laying out marinas, opening new banks, night clubs, and gift shops, are to him merely a passing plague. They have come before and gone before." - Author: Herman Wouk

Quotes About First Kiss

"My face breaks into a huge smile and i start walking in Peetas direction. Then, as if i cant stand it another second, I start running.He catches me and spins me around and then he slips-he still isnt entirely in command of his artificial leg-and we fall into the snow, me on top of him, and thats where we have our first kiss in months.Its full of fur and snowflakes and lipstick, but underneath all that, I can feel the steadiness that Peeta brings to everything. And I know Im not alone.As badly as Ive hurt him, he wont expose me in front of the cameras. Wont condemn me with a halfhearted kiss. Hes still looking out for me. Just as he did in the arena. Somehow the thought makes me want to cry. Instead I pull him to his feet, tuck my glove through the crook of his arm, and merrily pull him on our way." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Oncology Nurses

"An oncology ward is a battlefield, and there are definite hierarchies of command. The patients, theyre the ones doing the tour of duty. The doctors breeze in and out like conquering heroes, but they need to read your childs chart to remember where theyve left off from the previous visit. It is the nurses who are the seasoned sergeants -- the ones who are there when your baby is shaking with such a high fever she needs to be bathed in ice, the ones who can teach you how to flush a central venous catheter, or suggest which patient floor might still have Popsicles left to be stolen, or tell you which dry cleaners know how to remove the stains of blood and chemotherapies from clothing. The nurses know the name of your daughters stuffed walrus and show her how to make tissue paper flowers to twine around her IV stand. The doctors may be mapping out the war games, but it is the nurses who make the conflict bearable." - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Being Imprisoned

"The resentment I felt inside was not hatred for being imprisoned or for Victor who had betrayed me but something deeper: a rebellion against the very way of things that condemned men to be imprisoned inside their own identities." - Author: MacDonald Harris

Quotes About Marlena In Water For Elephants

"You ever watch a football game and get totally into it? Why? Its not a real battle. Its just a game somebody made up. So how can you take it seriously? Or, you ever see a movie that made your heart about jump out of your chest? Or one that made you cry? Why? It wasnt real. You ever look at a photo of food that made your mouth water? Why? You cant eat the picture.. . . . .Same thing with water towers and God. I dont have to be a believer to be serious about my religion." - Author: Pete Hautman

Quotes About Clive

"The two real leads in Children of Men are Clive Owen and the social environment. You know, this same movie without the social environment maybe is just like a generic chase movie." - Author: Alfonso Cuaron

Quotes About Placid

"Tina sognava acque placide e un sole nascosto da fronde e nuvole che non esistevano. Il sole dimprovviso si è fatto notte, una notte guasta e pesante. Lacqua si è infettata, agitandosi torbida intorno a lei, trasformando un lieve nuotare in un isterico annaspare in cerca daria. I riflessi sono diventati tenebre e la solitudine minaccia. Presenze ovunque intorno a lei, dietro ombre che prima nemmeno esistevano. Centinaia di occhi la scrutano malevoli, centinaia di ansiti, tutti appartenenti ad un unico padrone. Lei lunico oggetto della sua attenzione." - Author: Paolo Ferrara
