Ukamaka Olisakwe Quotes

"They said growing up was watching your breasts grow, your waist widen and hairs sprout on your erogenous ones. You became aware of the warmness that spread in circles in your stomach when that fine boy smiled at you. But that was not growing to me. Growing up was watching Papa drift away from us, and Mama grow drastically older from frying Akara balls just to cater for our home."

Lewis Buzbee Quotes

"A bran new book is a beautiful thing, all promise and fresh pages, the neatly squared spine, the brisk sense of a journey beginning. But a well-worn book also has its pleasures, the soft caress and give of the papers edges, the comfort, like an old shawl, of an oft-read story."

Kevin Skeens Quotes

"Easy is not an option! Everything is hard! We get negative and give up! dont give up! you have a dream you protect it and cherish it, You find it achieve it and stare failure in the face and show them why you can! Happiness, and the feel good things of life are all fun and games but its never the things that make the person you want to be! The person you want to be is only in your mind and never leaves! Most of you are afraid to show it or share it or afraid of losing a friend because you chose to be something different! What about you? what about your dreams and your goals? where do you stand in your own life? we lose concious of the fact that we actually matter, Think of your own well being for once, goals or no goals still no matter what be yourself!https://www.facebook.com/CreatingNewL..."

Brendan Halpin Quotes

"But here, Ms. Pelletier, is the thing. Without infinitesimals, the calculus as we know and love it simply wouldnt exist. It is these nearly-zero, sort-of-zero, sometimes-zero quantities that allow us to understand the world. Something which seems to be nearly nothing turns out to be crucial to everything. So though I, or for you that matter, or any of us, may be, as a collection of atoms, practically indistinguishable from zero, this does not necessarily mean we are insignificant. Indeed, it may be that we are actually crucially important."

Bernardo Atxaga Quotes

"I think of the memory as being rather like a dam," he said, after a pause for thought. "It irrigates and gives life to our whole spirit. But, like a dam, it needs overflow channels if its not to burst its banks. Because if it ever does overflow or burst, its waters will destroy everything in its path."

William Weld Quotes
