Antonio Feio Quotes

"Se as pessoas começarem a parar por um momento para olhar paras os casos como o meu, ou, simplesmente para a sua própria vida com olhos de ver, talvez comecem a relativizar os seus próprios problemas e possam perceber o que de facto vale a pena na vida."

Ava Zavora Quotes

"An endless scream pierced the frigid night air and shook the world with its rage and sorrow. The aged stone and brick that had withstood the great quake over a hundred years ago now trembled before its pain, and even the austere grimace of the lonely grotesque, its only witness, softened in pity."

Aya Kanno Quotes

"...What awaits at the end is light......And at the same time, darkness."

Arthur Nersesian Quotes

"I had grazed along the surface of her actions and made deep judgments. Rejecting someone because you couldnt understand their love, that was a new one. The more I thought about it the longer the shadow of doubt stretched over all my conclusions. More often than not, things were as they seemed. But as I stared at her, she wasnt as bad looking as I had once thought. I realized how all this time I had seen her the wrong way, and how ones character affects ones appearance. Although she wasnt my type she was attractive. As I thought about her - the vulnerable intelligence, the violent honesty, and the fact that in the entire city she was the only one who took me in and fed me - she became more and more irresistible. Baited by an obscure beauty, trapped by an intense sorrow - all prior definitions had been overruled: this was love."

George H W Bush Quotes

"You couldnt get that much under someones skin, that much in their blood, and not know exactly how to hurt them, even without trying."

Tristan Taormino Quotes

"Sex-positive feminism embraces the entire range of human sexuality and is based on the idea that sexual freedom is an essential component of womens freedom. - Madison Young"

Quotes About Cellar Door

"A real problem only occurs when there are admittedly disadvantages in all courses that can be pursued. If it is discovered just before a fashionable wedding that the Bishop is locked up in the coal-cellar, that is not a problem. It is obvious to anyone but an extreme anti-clerical or practical joker that the Bishop must be let out of the coal-cellar. But suppose the Bishop has been locked up in the wine-cellar, and from the obscure noises, sounds as of song and dance, etc., it is guessed that he has indiscreetly tested the vintages round him; then indeed we may properly say that there has arisen a problem; for upon the one hand, it is awkward to keep the wedding waiting, while, upon the other, any hasty opening of the door might mean an episcopal rush and scenes of the most unforeseen description." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Improving

"Its a lot to live up to. These pressures of achieving. From the moment youre born, youre pounded with the expectations of what you need to actualize in order to become a success. Go to college. Get married. Raise a family. Its what youre supposed to do. The plans youre supposed to make. The life youre supposed to live. Diverge from the norm and youre frowned upon. Questioned. Shunned. Theres something wrong with you if youre not interested in improving yourself. If you cant make a commitment of marriage. If you dont want to have children. So people earn a college degree so they can get a good job. They work at a job they hate just to earn a living. They spend two months salary on an engagement ring. They pop out a couple of kids they dont really want just so they can fit in. Because its what their parents did. Because its what society expects you to do. Because its safer to take the same path everyone else has traveled. Truth is, no ones listening to Robert Frost." - Author: S.G. Browne

Quotes About Couple Shirts

"I am not that attached to material things. And the good thing is I can make choices. I have very few possessions. Luckily, as a man you dont need much... a few papers, a couple of books, and a few shirts, jackets, sweaters. It fits in a little thing, in a paper bag, so its very easy." - Author: Nicolas Berggruen

Quotes About Rochester

Quotes About Holy Spirit

"In the legends that males have invented to explain life, the first human creature is a man named Adam. Eve arrives later, to give him pleasure and cause trouble. In the paintings that adorn churches, God is an old man with a beard, never an old woman with white hair. And all the heroes are males: from Prometheus who discovered fire to Icarus who tried to fly, on down to Jesus whom they call the Son of God and of the Holy Spirit, almost as though the woman giving birth to him were an incubator or a wetnurse." - Author: Oriana Fallaci

Quotes About Texas Bbq

"Youre going to be a famous artist." His voice is deep velvet - soothing and sure. "Youll live in one of those artsy, upscale apartments in Paris with your rich husband. Oh, who just happens to be a world-renowned exterminator. Hows that for a twist of fate? You wont even have to catch your own bugs anymore. Thatll give you more time to spend with your five brilliant kids. And Ill come visit every summer. Show up on the doorstep with a bottle of Texas BBQ sauce and a French baguette. Ill be weird Uncle Jeb." - Author: A.G. Howard

Quotes About Promoted

"Im sure that if woman laid out the rules- requirements- early on, and let her intended know that he could either rise up to those requirements, or just move on. A directive like that signals to a man that you are not a plaything-someone to be used and discarded. It tells him that what you have- your benefits- are special, and that you need time to get to know him and his ways to decide if he DESERVES them. The man who is willing to put in the time and meet the requirments is the one you want to stick around, because tthat guy is making a conscious decision that he, too, has no interest in playing games and will do what it takes to not only stay on the job, but also get promoted and be the proud beneficiary of your benefits. And you, in the meantime, win the ultimate prize of maintaing your dignity and self-esteem, and earning the respect of the man who recognized that you were worth the wait." - Author: Steve Harvey

Quotes About Seeking Validation

"I dont live my life seeking validation from people on social media." - Author: Ricki Lee Coulter

Quotes About Bible Authority

"The first grand federalist design...was that of the Bible, most particularly the Hebrew Scriptures or Old Testament... Biblical thought is federal (from the Latin foedus, covenant) from first to last--from Gods covenant with Noah establishing the biblical equivalent of what philosophers were later to term Natural Law to the Jews reaffirmation of the Sinai covenant under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah, thereby adopting the Torah as the constitution of their second commonwealth. The covenant motif is central to the biblical world view, the basis of all relationships, the mechanism for defining and allocating authority, and the foundation of the biblical political teaching." - Author: Daniel J. Elazar

Quotes About Unexpected Surprises

"Always I find when I begin to write there is one character who obstinately will not come alive...He never does the unexpected thing, he never surprises me, he never takes charge. Every other character helps, he only hinders. And yet one cannot do without him. I can imagine a God feeling in just that way about some of us. The saints, one would suppose, in a sense create themselves. They come alive. They are capable of the surprising act or word. The stand outside the plot, unconditioned by it. But we have to be pushed around. We have the obstinancy of non-existence. We are inextricably bound to the plot, and wearily God forces us, here and there, according to his intention, characters without poetry, without free will, whose only importance is that somewhere, at some time, we help to furnish the scene in which a living character moves and speaks, perhaps the saints with the opportunities for their free will." - Author: Graham Greene
