Rodrigo Fresan Quotes

"Si hay algo que no tolero es a esa gente que, cansada de golpear a las puertas del sistema sin lograr entrar en él, ya sea por incapacidad, dejadez o justicia pura, se se autoproclaman voceros del anti-sistema y no cejan en la crítica feroz basada en nimiedades, de quienes traspasamos los umbrales por lo que ellos nunca dejarán de suspirar.Si hay algo que me da risa es el avasallamiento sin contenido intelectual válido. La retórica tomada como mera gimnasia o simple juego de niños.Si hay algo que no acepto es que comparen a Coldplay con U2."

Laren Grey Umphlett Quotes

"Human, you are a machine, an organism, an animal, a primate, an artist, an athlete, a thinker, a sponge, a spirit, a comedian, a connoisseur, a cycle of breath in and breath out, an inventor, an expressor, an orator, a lover, an explorer, a creator, evolved. Your mind paints the flowers and the sky using the minds eye as a paintbrush and light as paint. Splashing life across the blank canvas of reality. Thats what you do. Every moment of every day."

Carl M Tomlinson Quotes

"A circular plot structure, often seen in adventure novels and quest fantasies, is a narrative devise involving setting, character, and theme. Typically a protagonist ventures from home (or the starting place of the story), goes on a journey, often a dangerous one in which many challenges are overcome, and then returns home a changed person. The plot is usually chronological, with the events occurring in a setting that becomes a circle. By returning the character to the place where he started, the author can emphasize the characters growth or change while also highlighting the theme of the story."

Woody Quotes

"When people get hurt,they learn to hate...when people hurt others,they become hated and racked with guilt.But knowing that pain allows people to be kind.Pain allows people to grow...and how you grow is up to you."

Given flesh, a smile, swinging her sculpted legs off one side of the bed, this is Helen of Troy. Yawning and stretching, here is every beautiful woman across history." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk
