Quotes About Funny Ece

"Whos straight? Im not. I am bent gouged pinched and tugged at, and squeezed into this funny shape. Each life is a game of chess that went to hell on the seventh move, and now the flukey play is cramped and slow, a dream of constraint and cross-purpose, with each move forced, all pieces pinned and skewered and zugzwanged... But here and there we see these figures who appear to run on the true lines, and they are terrible examples. Theyre rich, usually." - Author: Martin Amis

Quotes About Testemunho

"(...) compor meticulosamente o cadastro afetivo e o retrato fantástico-histórico de uma comunidade e de uma de suas remotas jornadas de meio século atras. E isso não com os instrumentos racionais, a ficha, o documento, o testemunho, caros ao arqueólogo do cotidiano, mas por meio de um sortilégio espontâneo de silhuetas que se esvaziaram gradativamente, uma depois da outra, numa parede: relicário de epifanias momentâneas, cinema de larvas dispersas; o insuficiente butim de um aprendiz de Noé que, depois do diluvio, para não esquecer o mundo, andasse a vasculhar os fosseis soterrados na areia (...)" - Author: Gesualdo Bufalino

Quotes About Cousins Fighting

"There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I and my brothers and my cousins against the world. That is jungle law. It is the way of the world when the world is thrown into chaos. It is our job to avert that chaos, to fight against it, to resist the urge to become savage. Because the problem with such law is that if you follow it, you are always fighting against someone." - Author: Nafisa Haji

Quotes About Adorable Girl

"P.39 - "Sor-ry," said Cassie, rolling her eyes and grinning at Damien. He grinned back, bonding away. I was taking a vague, unjustifiable dislike to Damien. I could see exactly why Hunt had assigned him to give the site tours—he was a PR dream, all blue eyes and diffidence—but I have never liked adorable, helpless men. I suppose its the same reaction Cassie has to those baby-voiced, easily impressed girls whom men always want to protect: a mixture of distaste, cynicism and envy." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About How Important She Is To Me

"How very important it is, to see the reflection of yourself and to keep that reflection in sight— despite how much you have been pushed and shoved, forgotten and ripped, lied to and deceived! It seems like the number one most valuable thing you can carry with you is the constant appearance of your own reflection for the beauty and wonder that you are and its a fight and a struggle to keep that. If you had a treasure box filled with magical things— this would be the one thing it seems like people want to destroy or to take away or in some cases to even make their own! But you must remember your reflection, you must see yourself illuminated and you must remember, against all odds, remember." - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About Across The Miles

"A PoemBy Max White is the color of little bunnies with pink noses. White is the color of fluffy clouds fluffing their way across the sky. White is the color of angels wings and Angels wings. White is the color of brand-new ankle socks fresh out of the bag. White is the color of crisp sheets in schmancy hotels. White is the color of every last freaking, gol-danged thing you see for endless miles and miles if you happen to be in Antarctica trying to save the world, which now you arent so sure you can do because you feel like if you see any more whiteness-Wonder Bread, someones underwear, teeth-you will completely and totally lose your ever-lovin mind and wind up pushing a grocery cart full of empty cans around New York City, muttering to yourself. That was my first poem ever. Okay, so its not Shakespeare, but I liked it." - Author: James Patterson
