[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.]

Quotes About Survivalist

"I think if I were to express my wish, it would be that we are more regionally self-reliant. And I dont mean people being survivalists, I mean regionally self-reliant.

Quotes About Blazing Trails

"So thats how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing thats stolen from us--thats snatched right out of our hands--even if we are left completely changed, with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence. We draw ever nearer to the end of our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails off behind. Repeating, often adroitly, the endless deeds of the everyday. Leaving behind a feeling of immeasurable emptiness." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Hidden Truth

"The hidden well-spring of your soul must needs rise and run murmuring to the sea; And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes.But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure;And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line. For self is a sea boundless and measureless. Say not, I have found the truth, but rather, I have found a truth.Say not, I have found the path of the soul.Say rather, I have met the soul walking upon my path.For the soul walks upon all paths.The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals." - Author: Kahlil Gibran

Quotes About Fate And Destiny And Love

"Love has no middle term; either it destroys, or it saves. All human destiny is this dilemma. This dilemma, destruction or salvation, no fate proposes more inexorably than love. Love is life, if it is not death. Cradle; coffin, too. The same sentiment says yes and no in the human heart. Of all the things God has made, the human heart is the one that sheds most light, and alas! most night." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Loving While You Can

"And of course Brian was far more upset about separation from those two blond moppets than about leaving Louise. There shouldnt be any problem loving both, but for some reason certain men choose; like good mutual-fund managers minimizing risk while maximizing portfolio yield, they take everything they once invested in their wives and sink it into their children instead. What is it? Do they seem safer, because they need you? Because you can never become their ex-father, as I think I might become your ex-wife?" - Author: Lionel Shriver

Quotes About Emotional Walls

"The strongest drive inside of a submissive, underneath all their emotional wounds, is for the Master to push aside any curtains or walls they may have erected to separate them from their true self, the naked, vulnerable soul. Because that soul wants only one thing. Do you want to know what that is?" <…> "I dont want to know. Thats not what the trainings about." "Wrong. Thats what submissive training is all about. Getting past those shields so she feels truly bound to her Master, a part of him as hes a part of her. The ultimate connection, where thought isnt necessary. Theyre together in the most elemental and perfect way there is. She stared at him. "Let me go, Tyler. I cant do this." "You can. You will." - Author: Joey W. Hill

Quotes About Manley

"Beowulf stands out as a poem which makes extensive use of this kind of figurative language. There are over one thousand compounds in the poem, totalling one-third of all the words in the text. Many of these compounds are kennings. The word to ken is still used in many Scottish and Northern English dialects, meaning to know. Such language is a way of knowing and of expressing meanings in striking and memorable ways; it has continuities with the kinds of poetic compounding found in nearly all later poetry but especially in the Modernist texts of Gerard Manley Hopkins and James Joyce." - Author: Ronald Carter

Quotes About Hadits

"Satu kekuatan kursus tamadun Islam di IPT Barat - jika kita ketepikan sikap prejudis dan perkiraan strategiknya - ialah kesungguhan ilmiahnya.... Setiap pelajar diwajibkan membaca keseluruhan terjemahan al-Quran, berpuluh-puluh hadits pilihan daripada pelbagai kitab-kitab hadits, terjemahan sirah Ibn Ishaq, serta terjemahan karya-karya agung Islam yang lain. Setiap pelajar diwajibkan membaca hampir 50 mukasurat setiap hari dan diwajibkan menulis kertas kerja serta ujian yang meletihkan. Kita juga diberikan peta dunia lama yang kosong di mana pelajar diwajibkan menanda nama bandar, sungai, laut, teluk, gunung, dan daerah, negara yang kini sudah tiada lagi atau sudah berubah nama!!! Ini perlu kerana apabila pelajar membaca karya-karya terdahulu, mereka boleh memastikan tempat dan kawasan yang dimaksudkan itu dengan tepat dan lebih bermakna." - Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
