Diego De Silva Quotes

"E curioso il modo che ha il destino di venire sotto forma di tempo. Anzi lo sarebbe, se non fosse che ce lha per vizio. Se uno, al momento del fatto che gli cambia la vita, buttasse locchio allorologio, vedrebbe le lancette che ripartono da uno zero fatto apposta per lui. Una risposta, una notizia, un incontro, un certo particolare squillo del telefono, arrivano con lanteprima. Si fanno vedere e scappano in avanti, mostrando la sequenza fin dove locchio la segue. Tutto il futuro non lo conosciamo. Quello più in là soprattutto. Ma il primo si. Lo vediamo benissimo."

Laurence Fox Quotes

"Youre an actor - people judge you and criticize you, and praise you and say youre great in equal measure."

Michael R Kitay Quotes

"So I was just thinking about how something happened today and it was quite insightful, humbling and puts things into perspective. If you look at anything, everything has its story so to speak. For instance, for me to even write this status requires an obscene amount of processes (essentially limitless). Just the biological processes that have to take place are in the trillions. Then you add the technological component, the psychology behind it(self-awareness/consciousness). Then you start looking at the macro factors behind it which include how I came into existence, how life came to be for that to occur, how earth came to be, the sun, the solar system, the galaxy, universe...etc. So the odds for all those things to occur for me to write a simple (or not so simply) status like this....is pretty fucking incredible to say the least."

Graceanne A Decandido Quotes

"If librarianship is the connecting of people to ideas – and I believe that is the truest definition of what we do – it is crucial to remember that we must keep and make available, not just good ideas and noble ideas, but bad ideas, silly ideas, and yes, even dangerous or wicked ideas."

Lisa Ann Sandell Quotes

"Oh my gosh, he smells good, like some exotic but comforting spice, nutmeg or cardamom. Slowly Damian lowers his head to mine and I think my chest might explode, my heart is tap-dancing so quickly. Hes going to kiss me. Ive imagined this and now its really happening, I am like a block of wood. I cant move. I cant breathe. I close my eyes as the lightest feather of a breath , then lips, brushing over my lips. His breath is sweet and the taste of coffee barely lingers in his mouth. I feel as though my whole body has turned to liquid, into a river of millions of droplets, rushing apart and then back together. "You have the softest lips," he whispers as he pulls back to look at me. "So do you," I murmur. Oh, was that a stupid thing to say? I turn my face into his jacket and breathe in his scent."

Will Rogers Quotes

"Never miss a good chance to shut up."

Dennis Crowley Quotes

"I learned early on not to feel badly about reaching out for help, and not to feel embarrassed about saying that youre in over your head."

Quotes About Information And Data

"The Cop. She has a steel grid in front of her mind, and for anything in the outer world to reach her it first has to squeeze through the bars of that grid. Information has to be broken into small cubes; information and data packaged in two-dimensional squares are preferable to three-dimensional cubes however: they pass through the grid more quickly and once they reach the Cops mind take up less space there." - Author: Russell Banks

Quotes About Keeping It Trill

"And there it is! Bravo! I knew it was only a matter of time before Byron realized he had an audience. That man is simply incapable of keeping his shirt on when there are spectators. One Christmas Eve, he stripped his shirt off right in the middle of the choirs rendition of Oh Child of Bethlehem. Coincidentally, the next song was Come Let Us Adore Him and the imbecile actually launched into some interpretive dance." - Author: Kirt J. Boyd

"And now the minister prayed. A good, generous prayer it was, and went into details: it pleaded for the church, and the little children of the church; for the other churches of the village; for the village itself; for the county; for the State; for the State officers; for the United States; for the churches of the United States; for Congress; for the President; for the officers of the Government; for poor sailors, tossed by stormy seas; for the oppressed millions groaning under the heel of European monarchies and Oriental despotisms; for such as have the light and the good tidings, and yet have not eyes to see nor ears to hear withal; for the heathen in the far islands of the sea; and closed with a supplication that the words he was about to speak might find grace and favor, and be as seed sown in fertile ground, yielding in time a grateful harvest of good. Amen." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Losing The Remote

"See, seeing him and how much he loved his wife, his daughter, how much he missed them, I changed. I was careful about letting people in my life. People I could lose.

Quotes About Life Star Wars

"In the context of the English language, there were many more important words than "in." There were fancy words, historic words, words that meant life or death. There were multi-syllabic tongue-twisters that required a sort out before speaking, and mission-critical pivotals that started wars or ended wars…and even poetic nonsensicals that were like a symphony as they left the lips. Generally speaking, "in" did not play with the big boys. In fact, it barely had much of a definition at all, and, in the course of its working life, was usually nothing but a bridge, a conduit for the heavy lifters in any given sentence. There was, however, one context in which that humble little two-letter, one-syllable jobbie was a BFD. Love. The difference between someone "loving" somebody versus being "in love" was a curb to the Grand Canyon. The head of a pin to the entire Midwest. An exhale to a hurricane." - Author: J.R. Ward
