[In The Four Decades After World War II, Manufacturing Jobs Paid More Than Other Jobs For Given Skills. But That Is Much Less True Today.

Quotes About Sparks

"As we walk back, it feels like the city is engulfing us. Adrenalin still pours through our veins. Sparks flow through to our fingers. Weve still been running in the mornings, but the citys different then. Its filled with hope and with bristles of winter sunshine. In the evening, its like it dies, waiting to be born again the next morning." - Author: Markus Zusak

Quotes About This Is Your Life

"At this point in the story, I feel obliged to interrupt and give you one last warning. As I said at the very beginning, the book you are holding in your hands does not have a happy ending. It may appear now that Count Olaf will go to jail and that the three Baudelaire youngsters will live happily ever after with Justice Strauss, but it is not so. If you like, you may shut the book this instant and not read the unhappy ending that is to follow. You may spend the rest of your life believing that the Baudelaires triumphed over Count Olaf and lived the rest of their lives in the house and library of Justice Strauss, but that is not how the story goes." - Author: Lemony Snicket

Quotes About Jelaous

"And he wondered, suddenly, what sort of divide it created between them, that he knew pieces of her that she had never shared with him - facts and stories and moments and memories to which she had no idea he was privy. He had collected them for so long, denying to himself that this acquisition was anything more than casual amusement, when in fact it was zealous, and jelaous besides; diwowning as accidental the fact that he never forgot a single remark she made, or that others made about her, and that he approved of these other people, or disdained them, according to their treatment of her. Such a lopsided intimacy existed between him and her. Inevitably, it created a chasm whose depth neither of them could know until they tried to chart it. Would this chasm prove impossible to bridge?" - Author: Meredith Duran

Quotes About Brinca

"A cronologia da infância não segue uma linha reta, mas é feita de sobressaltos. A memória é um espelho opaco e estilhaçado, ou melhor, é feita de conchas intemporais de lembranças espalhadas numa praia de esquecimento. Sei que aconteceram muitas coisas naqueles anos, mas tentar recordá-las é tão desesperador como tentar lembrar um sonho, um sonho que deixou em nós uma sensação, mas nenhuma imagem, uma história sem história, vazia, da qual resta apenas um vago estado de espírito. As imagens se perderam. Os anos, as palavras, as brincadeiras, as carícias se apagaram, e no entanto, de repente, rememorando o passado, alguma coisa volta a se iluminar na sombria região do esquecimento [153]." - Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince
