"My secret world of bosom sculpting is crashing down around me. Im destined for bra-stuffing rehab in a distant boobicus minimus land. I just know it."

Janalyn Voigt Quotes

"He dismounted and lifted his arms to Shae. Light as she was, he had to step backward when she leaned into him. He steadied them both, and then turned to instruct the groom. When Kai looked for her again, Shae was gone. A smile touched his mouth as he went through an archway in the inner curtain wall. He would keep his knowledge of Shaes morning activities to himself. (from DawnSinger)"

Darnell Lamont Walker Quotes

"If they knew how much you kept inside to keep from hurting them, but hurting yourself instead, maybe theyd love you more."

Leonid Andreyev Quotes

"Look at us, Lazarus, and share our joy. Is there anything stronger than love?"And Lazarus looked. And for the rest of their life they kept on loving each other, but their passion grew gloomy and joyless, like those funeral cypresses whose roots feed on the decay of the graves and whose black summits in a still evening hour seek in vain to reach the sky. Thrown by the unknown forces of life into each others embraces, they mingled tears with kisses, voluptuous pleasures with pain, and they felt themselves doubly slaves, obedient slaves to life, and patient servants of the silent Nothingness. Ever united, ever severed, they blazed like sparks and like sparks lost themselves in the boundless Dark."

Quotes About Yearning For The Past

"Although I admired scholarship so much in Cleric, I was not deceived about myself; I knew that I should never be a scholar. I could never lose myself for long among impersonal things. Mental excitement was apt to send me with a rush back to my own naked land and the figures scattered upon it. While I was in the very act of yearning toward the new forms that Cleric brought up before me, my mind plunged away from me, and I suddenly found myself thinking of the places and people of my own infinitesimal past." - Author: Willa Cather

Quotes About Group Discussions

"The fatal misconception behind brainstorming is that there is a particular script we should all follow in group interactions.... [W]hen the composition of the group is right—enough people with different perspectives running into one another in unpredictable ways—the group dynamic will take care of itself. All these errant discussions add up. In fact, they may even be the most essential part of the creative process. Although such conversations will occasionally be unpleasant—not everyone is always in the mood for small talk or criticism—that doesnt mean that they can be avoided. The most creative spaces are those which hurl us together. It is the human friction that makes the sparks." - Author: Jonah Lehrer

Quotes About Religion And Government

"Protestantisms evolution away from hierarchy and authority has enormous consequences for America and the world. On the one hand, the democratization of religion runs parallel to political democratization. The king of England, questioning the pope, inspires English subjects to question the king and his Anglican bishops. Such dissent is backed up by a Bible full of handy Scripture arguing for arguing with ones kIng. This is the root of self-government in the English-speaking world." - Author: Sarah Vowell

Quotes About Tolerance And Love

"People thought tolerance was the opposite of intolerance. Whereas in fact it was some meaningless neutrality. A child, any child, growing up, discovering herself and the nature of her deepest, most native desires - what use was tolerance to a child? It was encouragement she needed, encouragement first to be, then to love, herself. Or himself, whichever." - Author: Jamie ONeill

"Gets it for the recipes."Hermione looked sadly at her tiny egg." - Author: J.K. Rowling
