Quotes About Frogs And Princes

"Gavin stood within the trees, observing her from the shadows. He watched the basket rise to her nose as she closed her eyes to sniff at its contents. A smile told him it smelled delicious, but she didnt open the container to pinch off a sample. Instead, the basket lowered to swing at her side as it had previously done. All at once the air was filled with soft singing--a sweet, merry tune comprised of ludicrous lyrics. It was impossible not to grin at the words."Rainbows paint the sky ‘til the sun melts their colors. Swinging in the wind, whiskered cattails purr. The pigs gallop by and snort at the moon, While frogs kiss the lizards and princesses too."" - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich

Quotes About Baca

"O gün kapkaranlık sokaklarda dolaştım sokaklarda.İçimde, bu şölen sofrasına çıkarıp "bu da benden!" diye koyacak birşey yoktu.Renkli giysileri içinde güzel bacaklarını,muhallebi karınlarını,göğüslerini gösteren,saçlarından ışıltılar saçılan kızlar bende yalnızca ve yalnızca bir keşiş olma isteği uyandırıyordu.Bu istek de öfkelendiriyordu beni.İnsanın en temel meselelerinden birine, "Arzu etme acı çekersin!" kaypak bilgeliğiyle karşılık verenlere,insanları gömdükleri gibi meselelerini de gömebileceklerini düşünen kazma-kürek erbabına öfke duyuyordum." - Author: Barış Bıçakçı

Quotes About Life From Songs And Movies

"Why did popular songs always focus on romantic love? Why this preoccupation with first meetings, sad partings, honeyed kisses, heartbreak, when life was also full of childrens births and trips to the shore and longtime jokes with friends? Once Maggie had seen on TV where archaeologists had just unearthed a fragment of music from who knows how many centuries B.C., and it was a boys lament for a girl who didnt love him back. Then besides the songs there were the magazine stories and the novels and the movies, even the hair-spray ads and the pantyhose ads. It struck Maggie as disproportionate. Misleading, in fact." - Author: Anne Tyler
