Milan Mare Quotes

"Než si řekneme něco o prostředí, ve kterém se [limity] vynořili, povíme si alespoň stručne, co si pod nimi představovat. Ne kvůli matematikům, ti se o limitách učí hned v prvním semestru vyšší matematiky a zůstanou s nimi po zbytek života. I ve stádiu klinické smrti jsou schopni deklamovat zaříkadlo, ve kterém sa dají zaslechnout úseky znějící "...k libovolnému epsilon kladnému existuje delta kladné tak, že..."

Linda Leaming Quotes

"Bhutan does seem a bit unreal at times. Hardly anybody in the U.S. knows where it is. I have friends who still think the entire country is a figment of my imagination.

"Its where all the disposable lighters come from."Theyd nod in understanding."

Quotes About Pain Makes You Stronger

"Not only do we all have magic, its all around us as well. We just dont pay attention to it. Every time we make something out of nothing, thats an act of magic. It doesnt matter if its a painting or a garden, or an abuelo telling his grandchildren some tall tale. Every time we fix something thats broken, whether its a car engine or a broken heart, thats an act of magic.And what makes it magic is that we *choose* to create or help, just as we can choose to harm. But its so easy to destroy and so much harder to make things better. Thats why doing the right thing makes you stronger.If we can only remember what we are and what we can do, nobody can bind us or control us." - Author: Charles de Lint

Quotes About Devouring

"Within five minutes of leaving the reunion, Id undone the double wrapping and eaten all six rugelach, each a snail of sugar-dusted pastry dough, the cinnamon-lined chambers microscopically studded with midget raisins and chopped walnuts. By rapidly devouring mouthful after mouthful of these crumbs whose floury richness - blended of butter and sour cream and vanilla and cream cheese and egg yolk and sugar - Id loved since childhood, perhaps Id find vanishing from Nathan what, according to Proust, vanished from Marcel the instant he recognized "the savour of the little madeleine": the apprehensiveness of death. "A mere taste," Proust writes, and "the word death ... [has] ... no meaning for him." So, greedily I ate, gluttonously, refusing to curtail for a moment this wolfish intake of saturated fat, but, in the end, having nothing like Marcels luck." - Author: Philip Roth

Quotes About Grieving A Child

"It was a strange lightness, a drifting feeling. Zero gravity. I understood that everything that once seemed solid and immovable might just float away. And that this was a truth of life, not an illusion in the grieving mind of a child.

Some things just go more quickly, more surprisingly, than others." - Author: Lisa Unger
