[Images Are Taking Over, And Writers Are A Dying Breed. The Norman Mailers Of Today Are Reduced To Writing Pun-filled Captions For Paparazzi Photos. Blogs--which Were Threatening Enough To Professional Writers--are Being Replaced By Video Blogs. We Writers Need To Embraced The Second Commandment As Our Rallying Cry For The Importance Of Words. In A Literally Biblical World, All Publications Would Look Like The Front Page Of The Wall Street Journal. Or The Way It Used To Look, Anyway.]

"I dont like actors, I like women."

Tirumalai S Srivatsan Quotes

"Now you see. We are all fugitives. We have always been fugitives from the void. Whatever comfort, whatever power we gain from outside of ourselves diminishes us -- because comfort and power, unless they are won from the void inside of us, are illusions that make us forget the emptyness that carries us. When we forget that, we believe we deserve comfort and power and so are capable of any evil. We deserve nothing but what we make of ourselves. We deserve nothing else. And when we understand that, then nothing is enough."

Debra Kaye Quotes

Rebeca Rus Quotes

"―Es solo una hora ―empezó a decir de nuevo, pero la rabia de las multitudes tiene efectos secundarios: enturbia la mente y ensordece a sus víctimas. Debía cambiar de táctica―. ¡Mirad, el Rey de España!Pero la rabia de las multitudes vuelve a las multitudes republicanas. Nadie miró.―¡Mirad, Isabel Pantoja!Pero la rabia de las multitudes vuelve a las multitudes aficionadas al jazz. Nadie miró.―¡Mirad, Batman!La rabia de las multitudes, naturalmente, no vuelve a las multitudes más crédulas. La pequeña y pizpireta azafata estaba a merced de las señoras con abanico. Ese es siempre el momento que elige el Séptimo de Caballería para llegar y salvar el día."

Quotes About Doing Whatever You Want

"If reconciling your feminist values with your sexual preferences is something youre struggling with, dont panic. But try to believe what Im about to tell you, because its true: Its healthy to want and seek pleasure. Its generous and kind to want to make your sexual partner(s) feel good. You should do stuff with someone because you want to, not because they expect or feel entitled to it, and the same should be true for them. Whatever you do during sexytimes is between you and your partner—not you, your partner, and feminism, and not you, your partner, and the Gender Roles Police Force. Everything doesnt always have to be equal—unless you want it to be. The only things that matter are that everyones having fun, and everyones feeling respected by and respectful of their partners the whole time youre doing whatever it is that you get up to. Because in the end, thats all that sex is: Two people who want to have sex, alone in a room. No judgy voices allowed." - Author: Krista Burton

Quotes About Rainbows And Angels

"I felt like there should have been rainbows and rose petals in their wake or something.Ugh.That was catty.Jenna deserved rainbows and rose petals, I reminded myself as I flopped back on my bed, Dads book bumping painfully against my sternum. After everything shed been through, Jenna had earned an eternity of nothing but good stuff. So why did seeing her with Vix make me want to brain myself with Demonologies: A History? I looked at the nightstand again and sighed. Then I opened the heavy book and tried to make myself read.For the next few hours I made a valiant attempt to get through Chapter One.For a book that was supposedly about fallen angels running around and creating havoc with their super-awesome dark "magycks," it was awfully boring, and all the weird spellings definitely didnt help." - Author: Rachel Hawkins
