Jose Maria Merino Quotes

"He clung to the story as to a vow whose abandonment might bring down on his head all kinds of grief and misfortune. He felt very alone, on an interminable day full of evil omens, and the story, though resistant to some of his intentions, was at least a testimony to reality and coherence"

Carson Brown Quotes

"The sex-positive brigade thinks my [virgin-until-married] friend is doomed to a lifetime of unsatisfying sex, shell never have an orgasm, shes ashamed of her body, shes repressed, shes scarred, shes guilt-ridden, shell never masturbate, she needs to see a shrink, she wants attention, shes a lesbian, her husbands gay, its my responsibility to educate her, her father or priest molested her, shes been brainwashed by evil forces. Hmm. Sounds to me like shes pretty deviant--these are the sorts of comments usually reserved for queers, trannies, prostitutes, porn aficionados, S&M enthusiasts, and the rest of the freaks. Sounds like a Christian good girl just became "alternative." And where does that leave all the formulas?"

Quotes About Failing Businesses

"Instead of going back and looking at the question, people tinker with the solution, trying to make it fit."-Claude Legrande..."The consequences of failing to do that [in our personal lives] are the same as those facing businesses - even more dire, perhaps, because whats being squandered isnt just the potential for profits. Its the potential for happiness. We miss opportunities to innovate and to make positive changes in our lives when we arent willing to question ourselves." - Author: Amanda Lang

Quotes About Ocean Water

"Driftglass," I said. "You know all the Coca-Cola bottles and cut-crystal punch bowls and industrial silicon slag that goes into the sea?" I know the Coca-Cola bottles." They break, and the tide pulls the pieces back and forth over the sandy bottom, wearing the edges, changing their shape. Sometimes chemicals in the glass react with chemicals in the ocean to change the color. Sometimes veins work their way through in patterns like snowflakes, regular and geometric; others, irregular and angled like coral. When the pieces dry, theyre milky. Put them in water and they become transparent again." - Author: Samuel R. Delany

Quotes About Business And Finance

"I basically see two reasons for a going public: Glencore gets access to more money. It is a way of funding your business and to finance growth. Plus: You have more liquid shares. It is easier to leave the company and redeem your shares. The going public may also be an exit strategy for the top management." - Author: Marc Rich

Quotes About Fake Items

"Inside the room there sat a rocker, which she sat on, and which had rocked her while she sipped the beer, because in spite of herself she had become so giddy to have so quickly relieved her heart that she allowed herself to lean backwards while in the rocker, which had made it possible for the rocker to rock her, although it was not her intention to be so rocked. Also there stood an ironing board with a still hot iron on it that was burning a yellow shift, and there was, among several items that were not as noticeable to the woman, and yet were noticeable enough to at least bear mention, a fake man."I hope you dont mind me asking," said the woman who lived in the room, but then while in her chair she nodded off." - Author: Justin Dobbs

Quotes About Drone Strikes

"Language is a powerful thing, and it changes the way we view ourselves, and other people, in delightful and horrifying ways. Anyone with any knowledge of the military, or who pays attention to how the media talks about war, has likely caught on to this.We dont kill "people." We kill "targets." (Or japs or gooks or ragheads). We dont kill "fifteen year old boys" but "enemy combatants" (yes, every boy 15 and over killed in drone strikes now is automatically listed as an enemy combatant. Not a boy. Not a child.)." - Author: Kameron Hurley

Quotes About Told Ya So

"I told you it would be difficult! If I were you I would just not bother trying these tasks! They are great challenges, clearly too great for you." said Guya, but there was a certain sparkle in his eye as he said it. "I shall complete your tasks, " said Yoshiko firmly. "And Ill be back sooner than you think!" With that he spread his wings to head for Fire School. "Oh and one more thing Guya" Yoshiko added. Perhaps when I return you will be so kind as to stop calling me a little dragon!" As Yoshiko flew off Guya chuckled to himself." - Author: Julia Suzuki

Quotes About Family Strength And Love

"Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank You for this place in which we dwell, for the love accorded us this day, for the hope with which we expect the morrow; for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies that make our lives delightful; for our friends in all parts of the earth. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind. Spare us to our friends, soften us to our enemies. Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors; if it may not, give us strength to endure that which is to come that we may be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving to one another. We beseech of you this help and mercy for Christs sake." - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Quotes About Hareton

"The guest was now the master of Wuthering Heights: he held firm possession, and proved to the attorney, who, in his turn, proved it to Mr. Linton, that Earnshaw had mortaged every yard of land he owned for cash to supply his mania for gaming; and he, Heathcliff, was the mortgagee.In that manner, Hareton, who should now be the first gentleman in the neighbourhood, was reduced to a state of complete dependence on his fathers inveterate enemy; and lives in his own house as a servant deprived of the advantage of wages, and quite unable to right himself, because of his friendlessness, and his ignorance that he has been wronged." - Author: Emily Brontë
