[In Baseball, Democracy Shines Its Clearest. The Only Race That Matters Is The Race To The Bag. The Creed Is The Rule Book. And Color, Merely Something To Distinguish One Team's Uniform From Another's.]

Carol Fragale Brill Quotes

Luther Burbank Quotes

"The chief trouble with religion has been too much dependence upon names or words. People fail to discriminate. They do not think. Generally people who think for themselves, instead of thinking according to the rules laid down by others, are considered unfaithful to the established order. In that respect I, too, differ with the established order and established designations."

Phillip Lopate Quotes

"As I go about my daily life, Im turning it into a story. If something peculiar happens to me at the grocery store or the dry cleaners, I already start shaping it into a narrative the moment Im out the door, and I bring it home to my wife the way a cat presents a captured mouse to its master. If my wife has news of her own she wants to tell first, I am very put out, though I try to hide it, because here is this gift of an anecdote nicely shaped, dripping from my mouth."

William R Manchester Quotes

"His effect on men is one of interest and curiosity, not of admiration and loyalty. His power is the power of gifts, not character. Men watch him, but do not follow him."

Quotes About Uncaring Person

"Because God is never cruel, there is a reason for all things. We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest. The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one." - Author: Dean Koontz

Quotes About Youre Gonna Miss Me Quotes

"He didnt touch me. He could have—he had the perfect reason to—but he didnt.Instead he bent to collect my papers before the breeze could whisk them away.

Quotes About Nell

"Me ne stavo rinchiuso nellinfanzia per balia asciutta avevo la stanzetta dove dormivo sotto i castelli di libri di mio padre.

Nellinfanzia ai piedi dei libri, gli occhi non conoscevano le lacrime." - Author: Erri De Luca

Quotes About Life From Video Games

"Ultimately, the main reasons why I will be chubby for life are (1) I have virtually no hobbies except dieting. I cant speak any non-English languages, knit, ski, scrapbook, or cook. I have no pets. I dont know how to do drugs. I lost my passport three years ago when I moved into my house and never got it renewed. Video games scare me because they all seem to simulate situations Id hate to be in, like war or stealing cars. So if I ever lost weight I would also lose my only hobby; (2) I have no discipline; Im like if Private Benjamin had never toughened up but, in fact, got worse; (3) Guys Ive dated have been into me the way I am; and (4) Im pretty happy with the way I look, so long as I dont break a beach chair." - Author: Mindy Kaling

Quotes About Etienne

"Eau, tu nas ni goût, ni couleur, ni arôme, on ne peut pas te définir, on te goûte sans te connaître. Tu nes pas nécessaire à la vie, tu es la vie ! Tu nous pénètres dun plaisir qui ne sexplique point par le sens. Avec toi rentrent en nous tous les pouvoirs auxquels nous avions renoncé. Par ta grâce, souvrent en nous toutes les sources taries de notre cœur. Tu es la plus grande richesse qui soit au monde, et tu es aussi la plus délicate, toi si pure au ventre de la Terre. On peut mourir sur une source deau magnésienne. On peut mourir à deux pas dun lac deau salée. On peut mourir malgré deux litres de rosée qui retiennent en suspend quelques sels. Tu nacceptes point de mélange, tu ne supportes point laltération, tu es une ombrageuse divinité. Mais tu répands en nous un bonheur infiniment simple." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry
