Ted Hughes Quotes

"One day God felt he ought to give his workshop a spring clean... It was amazing what ragged bits and pieces came from under his workbench as he swept. Beginnings of creatures, bits that looked useful but had seemed wrong, ideas hed mislaid and forgotten... There was even a tiny lump of sun. He scratched his head. What could be done with all this rubbish?"

Po Bronson Quotes

"But Id rather help than watch. Id rather have a heart than a mind. Id rather expose too much than too little. Id rather say hello to strangers than be afraid of them. I would rather know all this about myself than have more money than I need. Id rather have something to love than a way to impress you."

Jess C Scott Quotes

"Drug addicts had their drugs. Alcoholics had their bottles. Serial killers had their murders."

Cheryl Ladd Quotes

"Two things I take very seriously in life. My golf game and my relationship with God. Neither one is simple."

Peter Higgs Quotes

"That name was a kind of joke, and not a very good one. An author, Leon Lederman, wanted to call it that goddamn particle because it was clear it was going to be a tough job finding it experimentally. His editor wouldnt have that, and he said, okay, call it the God particle, and the editor accepted it. I dont think he shouldve have done, because its so misleading."

Herman Melville Quotes

"And I, you, and he; and we, ye, and they, are all bats; and Im a crow, especially when I stand atop of this pine tree here. Caw! caw! caw! caw! caw! caw! Aint I a crow? And wheres the scare-crow? There he stands; two bones stuck into a pair of old trowsers, and two more poked into the sleeves of an old jacket."

Albus Dumbledore Quotes

"It is not our abilities that show who we truly are, it is our choices."

Gabriel Ba Quotes

"A vida é como um livro, filho. E todo livro tem um fim. Não importa o quanto você goste do livro você vai chegar na última página e ele vai terminar. Nenhum livro é completo sem o fim. E quando você chega lá somente quando você lê as últimas palavras é que você vê como o livro é bom. Ele parece mais real."

Martin Gayford Quotes

"When you are drawing, you are always one or two marks ahead. Youre always thinking, After what Im doing here Ill go there, and there. Its like chess or something. In drawing Ive always thought economy of means was a great quality - not always in painting, but always in drawing."

Quotes About Immobility

"On moonlight nights the long, straight street and dirty white walls, nowhere darkened by the shadow of a tree, their peace untroubled by footsteps or a dogs bark, glimmered in the pale recession. The silent city was no more than an assemblage of huge, inert cubes, between which only the mute effigies of great men, carapaced in bronze, with their blank stone or metal faces, conjured up a sorry semblance of what the man had been. In lifeless squares and avenues these tawdry idols lorded it under the lowering sky; stolid monsters that might have personified the rule of immobility imposed on us, or, anyhow, its final aspect, that of a defunct city in which plague, stone, and darkness had effectively silenced every voice." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Palavras

"As palavras em si mesmas não são nada. São apenas letrinhas agrupadas ou um monte de sons combinados de uma certa maneira, mas que não fazem nenhum sentido por si mesmos. É a gente que dá sentido às palavras. Está tudo em nossa cabeça, nos pequenos detalhes de como as coisas funcionam dentro dela. É só uma questão de como as coisas se processam no cérebro de uma pessoa e de outra, entende?" - Author: Camilo Gomes Jr.

Quotes About Trail Rides

"A dozen or more boats on the lake swung their rosy and moon–like lanterns low on the water, that reflected as from a fire. In the distance, the steamer twanged and thrummed and washed with her faintly–splashing paddles, trailing her strings of coloured lights, and occasionally lighting up the whole scene luridly with an effusion of fireworks, Roman candles and sheafs of stars and other simple effects, illuminating the surface of the water, and showing the boats creeping round, low down. Then the lovely darkness fell again, the lanterns and the little threaded lights glimmered softly, there was a muffled knocking of oars and a waving of music.Gudrun paddled almost imperceptibly. Gerald could see, not far ahead, the rich blue and the rose globes of Ursulas lanterns swaying softly cheek to cheek as Birkin rowed, and iridescent, evanescent gleams chasing in the wake. He was aware, too, of his own delicately coloured lights casting their softness behind him." - Author: D.H. Lawrence

Quotes About Friendship Better Than Love

"… Damned is the soul that dies while the evil it committed lives on. And the most damned of allare those who see the evil coming for others and refuse to confront it. For it is not out of fear thatheroes are born, but rather out of their selfless love that will not allow them safety bought fromthe torture, death, and degradation of others. It is better to die in defense of another than to livewith the knowledge that you could have saved them but chose to do nothing.And to those who think that one person cannot make a difference, I say this … the deadliest tidalwave begins as an unseen ripple in a vast ocean. Live your life so that your integrity will motivateothers to strive for excellence long after youve passed on, and know that no good deed orsacrifice, or offer of sincere friendship or love, is ever forgotten by the one who receives it." - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Stale Relationships

"Love alone is not enough. Without imagination, love stales into sentiment, duty, boredom. Relationships fail not because we have stopped loving but because we first stopped imagining." - Author: James Hillman

Quotes About Cowgirls

"A little boy, he can play like hes a fireman or a cop--although fewer and fewer are pretending to be cops, thank God--or a deep-sea diver or a quarterback or a spaceman or a rock n roll star or a cowboy, or anything else glamorous and exciting (Authors note: What about a novelist, Jellybean?), and although chances are by the time hes in high school hell get channeled into safer, duller ambitions, the great truth is, he can be any of those things, realize any of those fantasies, if he has the strength, nerve and sincere desire...But little girls? Podner, you know that story as well as me. Give em doll babies, tea sets and toy stoves. And if they show a hankering for more bodacious playthings, call em tomboy, humor em for a few years and then slip em the bad news...And the reality is, we got about as much chance of growing up to be cowgirls as Eskimos have got being vegetarians." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Kangaroos

"If God meant for us to carry baggage around, he would have made our skin have little pouches like kangaroos. Or maybe he would have just made it so that each and every one of us were born with huge- ass shoulders to carry the load. Clearly, we werent made to carry the weight of the world, kinda makes you wonder why we do it anyway, huh?" - Author: Rachel Van Dyken

Quotes About Seekers Of Truth

"They decided now, talking it over in their tight little two-and-quarter room flat, that most people who call themselves truth seekers - persons who scurry about chattering of Truth as though it were a tangible seperable thing, like houses or salt or bread - did not so much desire to find Truth as to cure their mental itch. In novels, these truth-seekers quested the secret of life in laboratories which did not seem to be provided wtih Bunsen flames or reagents; or they went, at great expense and much discomfort from hot trains and undesirable snakes, to Himalayan monasteries, to learn from unaseptic sages that the Mind can do all sorts of edifying things if one will but spend thirty or forty years in eating rice and gazing on ones navel.To these high matters Martin responded, Rot! He insisted that there is no Truth but only many truths; that Truth is not a colored bird to be chased among the rocks and captured by its tail, but a skeptical attitude toward life. (260)" - Author: Sinclair Lewis

Quotes About Weekend Enjoyment

"We keep quiet about what we read. Our enjoyment of a book remains a jealously guarded secret. Perhaps because there`s no need to talk, or because it takes time to distill what weve read before we can say anything. Silence is our guarantee of intimacy. We might have finished reading but we`re still livingthe book." - Author: Daniel Pennac
