Quotes About Vote For Me

"Each cherry took about three seconds to eat. Three seconds to eat, but at least five years in the making. It seemed unfair to the hard-working cherry tree. The least I could do was to devote my attention to the cherry in those three seconds, really appreciate the tartness of the skin and the faint crunching sound when I bite down. I guess its called mindfulness. Or being in the moment, or making the mundane sacred. Whatever it is, Im doing it more. Like the ridiculously extended thank-you list for my hummus, the fruit taboo made me more aware of the whole cherry process, the seed, the soil, the five years of watering and waiting. Thats the paradox: I thought religion would make me live with my head in the clouds, but as often as not, it grounds me in this world." - Author: A.J. Jacobs

Quotes About Crushing On Him

"I usually make it a point not to cry in front of people, especially hot boys that Id been totally crushing on before theyd tried to choke me.But for some reason, hearing that there was yet another thing I didnt know just sent me right on over the edge.Archer,to his credit, didnt look exactly horrified by my sobbing, and he even reached out like he might grab hold of my shoulders.Or possibly smack me.But before he could either comfort me or commit further acts of violence upon my person,I spun away from him and made my drama queen moment complete by running away.It wasnt pretty." - Author: Rachel Hawkins

Quotes About Short Snowflakes

"Dangerous as a lightning strike, as lethal as a pair of crisscrossing short swords, William whispered, "Youre about to find out how your liver tastes, my friend.""I have tasted it already," Zacharel said, his voice its usual monotone. The snowflakes began to fall in earnest, tiny at first, but growing in diameter. An arctic wind blustered around him. "It was a bit salty."How the hell was a guy supposed to respond to that?Apparently William didnt know, either, because he gaped at the angel. Then, "Maybe if you added a little pepper?"O-kay. It was official. William had an answer for everything." - Author: Gena Showalter

Quotes About Stolen Pictures

"Roses work of art took her all day, including two playtimes, story time, and most of lunch.At the end of school it was stolen from her by the wicked teacher who had pretended to be so interested."Beautiful- what-is-it?" she asked as she pinned it high on the wall, where Rose could not reach."They take your pictures," said Indigo,... when he finally made out what all the roaring and stamping was about. "They do take them.... Why do you want that picture so much?" he asked Rose."It was my best ever," said Rose furiously. "I hate school. I hate everyone in it.

Quotes About Incomplete Day

"There is a delightful story which tells of Eostre finding an injured bird on the ground and, in order to save its life, she transformed it into a hare. The transformation however was incomplete and, although the bird looked like a hare, it still retained the ability to lay eggs. Regardless of this slight mishap, the hare was so grateful for the goddess saving her life that on Eostres festival the hare would lay eggs, decorate them and leave them as a token of thanks. In Germany today, many young children still believe that their Easter eggs are laid and delivered by the Easter hare." - Author: Carole Carlton

Quotes About Sojourn

"There is such a place as fairyland - but only children can find the way to it. And they do not know that it is fairyland until they have grown so old that they forget the way. One bitter day, when they seek it and cannot find it, they realize what they have lost; and that is the tragedy of life. On that day the gates of Eden are shut behind them and the age of gold is over. Henceforth they must dwell in the common light of common day. Only a few, who remain children at heart, can ever find that fair, lost path again; and blessed are they above mortals. They, and only they, can bring us tidings from that dear country where we once sojourned and from which we must evermore be exiles. The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland." - Author: L.M. Montgomery

Quotes About Sappy

"He wasnt the type for displays of affection, either verbal or not. He was disgusted by couples that made out in the hallways between classes, and got annoyed at even the slightest sappy moments in movies. But I knew he cared about me: he just conveyed it more subtly, as concise with expressing this emotion as he was with everything else. It was in the way hed put his hand on the small of my back, for instance, or how hed smile at me when I said something that surprised him. Once I might have wanted more, but Id come around to his way of thinking in the time wed been together. And we were together, all the time. So he didnt have to prove how he felt about me. Like so much else, I should just know." - Author: Sarah Dessen
