Quotes About Making Phone Calls

"Well, I spent six or seven years after high school trying to work myself up. Shipping clerk, salesman, business of one kind or another. And its a measly manner of existence. To get on that subway on the hot mornings in summer. To devote your whole life to keeping stock, or making phone calls, or selling or buying. To suffer fifty weeks of the year for the sake of a two-week vacation, when all you really desire is to be outdoors, with your shirt off. And always to have to get ahead of the next fella. And still — thats how you build a future." - Author: Arthur Miller

Quotes About Trapeze Artists

"He said that academia reminded him of a badly run circus. The faculty members were like underfed animals -- weary of their cages, which were never large enough to begin with -- and they responded sluggishly to the whip. The trapeze artists fell with monotonous regularity into poorly strung nets. The clowns looked hungry. The tent leaked. The crowd was inattentive, shouting incoherently at inappropriate moments. And when the show was over, no one cheered." - Author: Susan Hubbard

Quotes About Solving A Mystery

"I tried to look at writing a song almost like solving a mystery. The song was there, buried somewhere in my brain. All I had to do was follow the clues until I figured it out." - Author: Jon Skovron

Quotes About Surmounting

"In the preachers words the Heavenly City has risen up, surmounting their lives, the house, the town -- the final hope, in which all the riddles and ends of the world are gathered, illuminated, and bound. This is the preachers hope, and he has moved to it alone, outside the claims of time and sorrow, by the motion of desire which he calls faith. In it, having invoked it and raised it up, he is free of the world. But it is this hope -- this last simplifying rest-giving movement of the mind -- Mat realizes he is not free, and never has been. He is doomed to hope in the world, in the bonds of his own love. He is doomed to take every chance and desperate hope of hope between him and death, Virgils, Margarets, his. His hope of Heaven must be the hope of a man bound to the world that his life is not ultimately futile or ultimately meaningless, a hope more burdening than despair." - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Beauties

"...he would tell stories about the Holy City, about Solomon, a just king, a poet-king, a monarch with a thousand concubines. We werent quite sure what concubines were, but we guessed: a concubine ... Concubines! One thousand! One thousand women in all colours and shapes - but all of them sexy, of course - one thousand - one thousand raving beauties lying side by side on a bed (what a bed! How wide it must have been!), all of them smiling, all of them reaching out their arms, all of them saying something in Hebrew - but the meaning was unmistakeable - "Come here, sweety." One thousand women. If one were to spend twenty, or fifteen minutes with each one of them, how long would it take to...? A problem that our math teacher never assigned us for homework...!" - Author: Moacyr Scliar

Quotes About Afternoon Coffee

"Rain is the last thing you want when youre chasing someone in Miami. They drive shitty enough as it is, but on top of that, snow is a foreign concept, which means they never got the crash course in traction judgment for when pavement slickness turns less than ideal. And because of the land-sea temperature differential, Florida has regular afternoon rain showers. Nothing big, over in a jiff. But minutes later, all major intersections in Miami-Dade are clogged with debris from spectacular smash-ups. In Northern states, snow teaches drivers real fast about the Newtonian physics of large moving objects. I havent seen snow either, but I drink coffee, so the calculus of tire-grip ratio is intuitive to my body." - Author: Tim Dorsey

Quotes About Time And Past

"We didnt try to force Gods hand or do the "I just heard a sermon about David and Goliath so I need to quit my job right this second" leap of faith thats so popular in Christian circles. We took our time with the decision, like another guy in the Bible, named Jesus. He spent thirty years in obscurity before he started his adventure. Often, were not willing to spend thirty minutes in preparation, never mind thirty years, especially when we come home from a conference and find our day jobs waiting for us on Monday morning. Im not sure why Christians sometimes think the maturation of our own missions will be radically shorter than that of Jesus. But it happens and in the past Ive certainly wanted to take wild, unplanned, possibly-not-inspired-by-God leaps of faith." - Author: Jon Acuff

Quotes About Early Death

"It was the first genuinely shining day of summer, a time of year which brought Eleanor always to aching memories of her early childhood, when it seemed to be summer all the time; she could not remember a winter before fathers death on a cold wet day." - Author: Shirley Jackson

Quotes About Extended Family

"...I also have an extended family. The people who stayed. The people who became more than friends; the people who open the door when I knock. Thats what it all boils down to. The people who have to open the door, not because they always want to but because they do." - Author: Diane Keaton
