[In Collegium It Had Been The Fashion, While He Had Been Resident There, To Paint Death As A Grey-skinned, Balding Beetle Man In Plain Robes, Perhaps With A Doctor's Bag But More Often An Artificer's Toolstrip And Apron, Like The Man Who Came In, At The Close Of The Day, To Put Out The Lamps And Still The Workings Of The Machines.Among His Own People, Death Was A Swift Insect, Gleaming Black, Its Wings A Blur - Too Fast To Be Outrun And Too Agile To Be Avoided, The Unplumbed Void In Which He Swam Was But The Depth Of A Single Facet Of Its Darkly Jewelled Eyes.]

Tucker Elliot Quotes

"Big Papi placed among the top five in Most Valuable Player balloting during his first five seasons with the Red Sox.

Quotes About Nykyrian

Quotes About Elephants In The Room

"The world rides through space on the back of a turtle. This is one of the great ancient world myths, found wherever men and turtles were gathered together; the four elephants were an Indo-European sophistication. The idea has been lying in the lumber rooms of legend for centuries. All I had to do was grab it and run away before the alarms went off.There are no maps. You cant map a sense of humour. Anyway, what is a fantasy map but a space beyond which There Be Dragons? On the Discworld we know There Be Dragons Everywhere. They might not all have scales and forked tongues, but they Be Here all right, grinning and jostling and trying to sell you souvenirs." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Mount Rushmore

"When I was extremely young and shockingly stupid, I thought you werent supposed to ever get angry at anybody you cared about (lest you suspect Im exaggerating the "shockingly stupid" part, I also thought Mount Rushmore was a natural phenomenon). I honestly believed that people who were truly in love would never dream of having a good, old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out fight. I guess when youre the type of girl who walks around thinking that the wind just sort of sculpted Teddy Roosevelt into the side of a mountain, the concept of a fairy-tale relationship makes total sense." - Author: Lisa Kogan

Quotes About Troubled Souls

"As I thought of these things, I drew aside the curtains and looked out into the darkness, and it seemed to my troubled fancy that all those little points of light filling the sky were the furnaces of innumerable divine alchemists, who labour continually, turning lead into gold, weariness into ecstasy, bodies into souls, the darkness into God; and at their perfect labour my mortality grew heavy, and I cried out, as so many dreamers and men of letters in our age have cried, for the birth of that elaborate spiritual beauty which could alone uplift souls weighted with so many dreams." - Author: W.B. Yeats

Quotes About Clairsentient

"Some people are highly empathic, some people are telempathic, or telepathic, some are clairempathic, while others are claircognizant, clairvoyant, clairaliant, clairaudient, clairgustant, clairsentient; and a very few are all of the above.
