Antoine De Saint Exupery Quotes

"A los mayores les encantan las cifras. Si les hablas de un nuevo amigo tuyo, nunca te preguntarán por lo esencial. Nunca te dirán: "¿Cuál es el timbre de su voz? ¿Cuáles son los juegos que más le gustan? ¿Colecciona mariposas?" Te preguntarán: "¿Qué edad tiene? ¿Cuántos hermanos tiene? ¿Cuánto pesa? ¿Cuánto gana su padre?" Sólo entonces creerán conocerlo. Si dices a los mayores: "He visto una bonita casa de ladrillos color rosa, con geranios en las ventanas y palomas en el tejado...", no conseguirán imaginarse esa casa. Hay que decirles: "He visto una casa de cien mil francos". Entonces exclaman: "¡Qué fabuloso!"

Naoki Higashida Quotes

"We do take pleasure in one thing that you probably wont be able to guess. Namely, making friends with nature. ... nature is always there at hand to wrap us up, gently: glowing, swaying, bubbling, rustling. Just by looking at nature, I feel as if Im being swallowed up into it, and in that moment I get the sensation that my bodys now a speck, a speck from long before I was born, a speck that is melting into nature herself. This sensation is so amazing that I forget that Im a human being, and one with special needs to boot. Nature calms me down when Im furious, and laughs with me when Im happy. You might think that its not possible that nature could be a friend, not really. But human beings are part of the animal kingdom too, and perhaps us people with autism still have some left-over awareness of this, buried somewhere deep down. Ill always cherish that part of me that thinks of nature as a friend."

Quotes About Extremes In Life

"Manila is a city of extremes. The poor are very poor and the rich very rich. They live side by side. The rich live in sprawling houses in residential subdivisions with fancy names like Green Meadows, White Plains, Corinthian Plaza, Bel Air, San Lorenzo, Magallanes and the very exclusive Forbes Park, a leafy enclave that was home to the famous Manila Polo Club. The poor are not far from sight. They live in little pockets on the periphery of these affluent subdivisions. A constant reminder to the rich that there is another side to life." - Author: Arlene J.

Quotes About Snowe

"And again it snowed, and again the sun came out. In the mornings on the way to the station Franklin counted the new snowmen that had sprung up mysteriously overnight or the old ones that had been stricken with disease and lay cracked apart--a head here, a broken body and three lumps of coal there--and one day he looked up from a piece of snow-colored rice paper and knew he was done. It was as simple as that: you bent over your work night after night, and one day you were done. Snow still lay in dirty streaks on the ground but clusters of yellow-green flowers hung from the sugar maples." - Author: Steven Millhauser

Quotes About Pursuing Goals

"alentines Day is coming up and many persons will feel bothered by the fact that theyre still single. At one point I was also there and I know how it feels, but my advice to you is no to allow the spirit of this season to spoil your inner peace. Valentines is not so much about love and relationships as it is about money and creating a false sense of worth for those unable to fully indulge themselves.A relationship is no measure of a persons worth, as a matter of fact many professional and driven persons of sound character and strength are single for the very reason that relationships are very difficult to focus on while pursuing goals. In whatever circumstance you are, while you do have life, be thankful because you are free to be as happy as you make your mind up to be." - Author: Calvert Jones
