Chris Matthews Quotes

"I cant find a reason to be for this war. Ive looked, and I cant, so Im not."

Timothy Schaffert Quotes

"Desiree the child bride, and her sister Miranda, had gone grave-robbing for a wedding gown. In the north end of the cemetery, among the palatial mausoleums with their broken windows of stained glass where the ivy crept in, was the resting place of a young woman whod been murdered at the altar while reciting her marital vows. The decaying tombstone, among the cemeterys most envied, was a limestone bride in despair, shoulders as slumped as a mules, a bouquet of lilies strewn at her feet. Though her murder, by her grooms jealous mother, had been long in the past, everyone knew that her father had had her buried in her gown of lace and silk."

Fermat Quotes

"It is a matter for considerable regret that Fermat, who cultivated the theory of numbers with so much success, did not leave us with the proofs of the theorems he discovered. In truth, Messrs Euler and Lagrange, who have not disdained this kind of research, have proved most of these theorems, and have even substituted extensive theories for the isolated propositions of Fermat. But there are several proofs which have resisted their efforts."

Ben Michaelis Quotes

"Adults play in many of the same ways that kids do: by using our minds eyes to see ourselves in new and different ways, by considering who we are, and imagining who and what we can be."

Tony Robbins Quotes

Quotes About Jennings

"Jennings saw this and held the gun up with his fingers splayed placatingly as if to show her that he wasnt planning on using it. Not yet, anyway. "I dont want to hurt you again, Lily," he told her. "So just make sure you dont do anything stupid, and I wont." At that moment, he reminded her of John Cusack in Grosse Pointe Blank. He acted like he was making a reasonable request. As if there was justification for shooting someone thirty times." - Author: Heather Killough Walden

Quotes About Wasted Youth

"Not only to myself or before the mirror or at the hour of my death, which I hope will be long in coming, but in the presence of my children and my wife and in the face of the peaceful life Im building, I must acknowledge: (1) That under Stalin I wouldnt have wasted my youth in the gulag or ended up with a bullet in the back of my head. (2) That in the McCarthy era I wouldnt have lost my job or had to pump gas at a gas station. (3) That under Hitler, however, I would have been one of those who chose the path of exile, and that under Franco I wouldnt have composed sonnets to the caudillo or the Holy Virgin like so many lifelong democrats. One thing is as true as the other. My bravery has its limits, certainly, but so does what Im willing to swallow. Everything that begins as comedy ends as tragicomedy." - Author: Roberto Bolaño

Quotes About Love Voltaire

"Tolerance, which is one form of love of neighbor, must manifest itself not only in our personal relations, but also in the arena of society as well. In the world of opinion and politics, tolerance is that virtue by which liberated minds conquer the evils of bigotry and hatred. Tolerance implies more than forbearance or the passive enduring of ideas different from our own. Properly conceived, tolerance is the positive and cordial effort to understand anothers beliefs, practices, and habits without necessarily sharing or accepting them. Tolerance quickens our appreciation and increases our respect for our neighbors point of view. It goes even further; it assumes a militant aspect when the rights of an opponent are assailed. Voltaires dictum, "I do not agree with a word that you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it," is for all ages and places the perfect utterance of the tolerant ideal." - Author: Joshua Loth Liebman

Quotes About Ranching

"There is titillating pleasure in looking back at the past and asking oneself, What would have happened if... and substituting one chance occurrence for another, , observing how, from a gray, barren, humdrum moment in ones life, there grows forth a marvelous rosy even that in reality had failed to flower. A mysterious thing, this branching structure of life: one senses in every past instant a parting of ways, a thus and an otherwise, with innumerable dazzling zigzags bifurcating and trifurcating against the dark background of the past." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Broken Hearts And God

"I did not know where I belonged or if there was a place on earth for children who had broken hearts and shattered trustI could not fathom a place where those who were not loved would feel safe from the hands of predators and the leering eyes of those whod lost a love for innocenceI walked close to walls and never slept, held my breath during long nights of ticking clocks and creaking floors hoping that the monsters in the closet would be too tired to whisper secrets worse than nightmaresuntil a fragment of Truth unlocked the door to a kingdom with air so rarified and pure that demons cannot breathe there and monsters wither in the lightyou do not live in the world it promised you live in the space where God and men do meet, you live in a kingdom undivided, inviolate, a place where you can close your eyes and rest your hopes upon His Love... in this place there is only peace...rest sweet child rest,rest, rest..." - Author: Kate Mullane Robertson

His [Murtagh] eyes widened and his grimace relaxed, as if his pain was forgotten, and an inner light seemed to illuminate his features. I understand-we understand." - Author: Christopher Paolini

Quotes About Neighbours And Friends

"She was bedridden falling a fall which broke her hip. X-rays showed that she had cancer of the colon which had already spreed. To my surprise I found her cheerful and free of pain, perhaps because of the small doses of morphine she was being given. She was surrounded by neighbours and friends who congregated at her bedside day and night. In this cosy, noisy, gregarious world of the "all-chinese" sickbed, so different from the stark, sterile solitude of the American hospital room, her life had assumed the astounding quality of a continuous farewell party." - Author: Adeline Yen Mah
