"Never dance in a puddle when theres a hole in your shoe (its always best to take your shoes off first)."

David Leonhardt Quotes

"When you assume you make a you-know-what out of U and me. Yep, so lets stop assuming so much. We are often quick to explain details to strangers, who we understand might not be reading our minds, but we often assume that those people closest to us, those who share our household such as spouses, children parents and siblings, can read our minds. And we get upset with them when they dont go figure.I wonder how many angry words are directed not at an action or inaction as would at first appear, but simply at the fact that somebody did not read our minds.So lets give those people we care most about the benefit of the doubt and do a little less assuming and a little more explaining."

Melvin Burgess Quotes

"Anarchy loves theatre. Thats the whole point. People forget that. You have to laugh at the devil, not fight him. Theyll always have more guns, theyll always have more bombs that go off with a bigger bang. No matter how revolting you become theyll always be willing to be more revolting to you. Theyve had so much more practice."

"Lifes true value and meaning can only be known if we speak for the truth, not for our advocacy, but for the truth itself."

Sara Blakely Quotes

"I think failure is nothing more than lifes way of nudging you that you are off course. My attitude to failure is not attached to outcome, but in not trying. It is liberating. Most people attach failure to something not working out or how people perceive you. This way, it is about answering to yourself."

Lauren Oliver Quotes

"Now Id rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie."

Quotes About Male Species

"But if you didnt have more urgent things to do after supper [in boot camp], you could write a letter, loaf, gossip, discuss the myriad mental shortcomings of sergeants and, dearest of all, talk about the female of the species (we became convinced that there was no such creatures, just mythology created by inflamed imaginations - one boy in our company claimed to have seen a girl, over at regimental headquarters; he was unanimously judged a liar and a braggart)." - Author: Robert A. Heinlein

"It took several minutes, and when Butters woke up, Andi and Marci, both naked, both rather pleasant that way, were giving him CPR.

"Subtract the horrible pain in my chest, and all the mold and mildew, and Im living the dream."Then he passed out." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Praise Jesus

"...the people at the top know what they have to do to stay there, and in a pinch they can easily overlook the sweaty piety of the new Republican masses, the social conservatives who raise their voices in praise of Jesus but cast their votes for Caesar." - Author: Thomas Frank

Quotes About Tennyson

"Crossing the Bar"Sunset and evening star,And one clear call for me!And may there be no moaning of the bar,When I put out to sea,But such a tide as moving seems asleep,Too full for sound and foam,When that which drew from out the boundless deepTurns again home.Twilight and evening bell,And after that the dark!And may there be no sadness of farewell,When I embark;For tho from out our bourne of Time and PlaceThe flood may bear me far,I hope to see my Pilot face to faceWhen I have crossed the bar." Lord Tennyson" - Author: Ally Condie

Quotes About Personajes

"Conoces ese sentimiento, cuando estás leyendo un libro, y sabes que va a haber una tragedia; puedes sentir que viene el frío y la oscuridad, ver como se dibuja una red apretadamente al rededor de los personajes que viven y respiran en las páginas. Pero estas amarrado a la historia, como si estuvieras siendo arrastrado detrás de un carruaje y no puedes dejarlo ir o alterar el curso hacia algún lado.Siento ahora, como que está sucediendo lo mismo, solo que no con personajes de las páginas sino con mis queridos amigos y compañeros. No quiero quedarme sentada mientras la tragedia viene por nosotros. Lo haré a un lado, solo yo lucharé para descubrir la forma en que ha de hacerse." - Author: Cassandra Clare

Quotes About Crunch

"It was an excellent coat. It was long, grey, suspiciously blotched, smelt faintly of dust and old curries, went all the way down to my knees and overhung my wrists even when I stretched out my arms. It had big, smelly pockets, crunchy with crumbs, it boasted the remnants of a waterproof sheen, was missing a few buttons, and had once been beige. It was the coat that detectives down the ages had worn while trailing a beautiful, dangerous, presumably blond suspect in the rain, the coat that no one noticed, shapeless, bland and grey - it suited my purpose perfectly." - Author: Kate Griffin

Quotes About Fat Shaming

"Fat-bashing in all its varied forms–criticism, exclusion, shaming, fat talk, self-deprecation, jokes, gossip, bullying–is one of the last acceptable forms of prejudice. From a very young age, before they can walk away or defend themselves, women are taught that they are how they look, not what they do or what they know. (1)" - Author: Robyn Silverman

Quotes About Cozy Sweaters

"(…) met the owner of this cozy book-and-candle Apt. G, a tall, leggy, striking girl named Bea or maybe just the letter B or maybe the insect Bee, not sure, her long blond hair pulled in a ponytail, her no-doubt banging body effortlessly buried beneath a pile of tights and sweaters and scarves – she is a walking coat rack – and as we shook hands, Bea fixed me with the most alarming blue-eyed stare of my life, the kind of stare in which you think some potent subliminal message is being passed along (Run away with me or maybe just Run away), (…)" - Author: Jess Walter
