David Trimble Quotes

"The dark shadow we seem to see in the distance is not really a mountain ahead, but the shadow of the mountain behind - a shadow from the past thrown forward into our future. It is a dark sludge of historical sectarianism. We can leave it behind us if we wish."

Dr Ava Cadell NeuroLoveology The Power To Mindful Love Sex Quotes

"Like all things that are truly ‘worth it, love isnt easy or stress-free. Each new challenge offers an opportunity to strengthen or destroy a couples bond, and it takes real effort to choose the path that leads to success. The only difference between relationships that fly and ones that die is the way in which challenges are faced. Like a good workout, you can only get out of it what you put in. If you want to get strong, you have to do the heavy lifting, gain endurance, test your limits, and earn your sweat. A strong relationship requires the same elements as a strong body – a commitment to push forward when things get difficult, and the flexibility to adapt to new moves. If you dont stretch first, you could get hurt. And if you dont maintain the passion in your relationship, the bond will wither."

Roger B Chaffee Quotes

"The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way - the way God intended it to be - by giving everyone, eventually, that new perspective from out in space."

Kolbrin BIble Quotes

"The seeming imperfections of Earth, the hazards and inequalities of life, the cruelty, harshness and apparent indifference to suffering and affliction are not what they seem; as it is Earth is perfect for its purpose. It is ignorance of that purpose which makes it appear imperfect."

Emma Anderson Quotes

"We had so much press, and then they get bored... I think weve done well to keep going."

Quotes About The Ocean And Love

"Out of the rolling ocean the crowd came a drop gently to me,Whispering I love you, before long I die,I have traveld a long way merely to look on you to touch you,For I could not die till I once lookd on you,For I feard I might afterward lose you. Now we have met, we have lookd, we are safe,Return in peace to the ocean my love,I too am part of that ocean my love, we are not so much separated,Behold the great rondure, the cohesion of all, how perfect!But as for me, for you, the irresistible sea is to separate us,As for an hour carrying us diverse, yet cannot carry us diverse forever;Be not impatient--a little space--know you I salute the air, theocean and the land,Every day at sundown for your dear sake my love." - Author: Walt Whitman

Quotes About Frankenstein Felix

"Maybe the real problem wasnt that she had nothing to write about, but that she had too much. Maybe she wasnt afraid of her finiteness after all, but rather Infinity and how it called her to begin somewhere, anywhere. To begin might be an acceptance that indeed she was some kind of creator, with tremendous powers. It might mean taking peoples lives into her hands–her own life, her friends, even her fathers or mothers. And maybe she was afraid they would think she had animated a wandering Frankenstein no one wanted to hold." - Author: L.L. Barkat

Quotes About Broder

"Hear this now. Nothing, not even death, will keep me from loving you. Though this body may wither and become a dry shell, my spirit will pursue you until the end of time. We will never be apart." He covered her mouth with his and tasted her blood. Trailing tender kisses across her cheek and jawline, he nestled against her neck. "Eternally yours," he whispered. She clutched his head and offered her throat. "Together forever," she responded. Broderick hesitated, her erratic pulse beating against his tongue. "Give me peace," she whispered in a tortured breath. "Do this for me." "I will love you forever, Davina." His fangs pierced her cool skin and Broderick drank the life from his wife, granting her wish…and tormenting his already damned soul." - Author: Arial Burnz
