[It Made Me Very Sad, That Question. Sad And Defeated. Because I Knew She Knew Why I Was Thinking About That Woman—I Was Thinking About My Own Tendencies Toward Aloneness And I Thought I Could End Up Like That Woman, With A Bird Perhaps, Or A Dog—probably A Dog, I Know Birds Are Supposed To Make Good Pets But I Think There's Something Creepy About Them—but Alone With A Life That Didn't Touch Or Overlap With Anyone Else's, A Sort Of Hermetically Sealed Life.]

Quotes About Foolish Behavior

Quotes About Supernatural Series

"Meditation is a mysterious method of self-restoration.It involves "shutting" out the outside world, and by that means sensing the universal "presence" which is, incidentally, absolute perfect peace.It is basically an existential "time-out"—a way to "come up for a breath of air" out of the noisy clutter of the world.But dont be afraid, there is nothing arcane or supernatural or creepy about the notion of taking a time-out. Ball players do it. Kids do it, when prompted by their parents. Heck, even your computer does it (and sometimes not when you want it to).So, why not you?A meditation can be as simple as taking a series of easy breaths, and slowly, gently counting to ten in your mind." - Author: Vera Nazarian

Quotes About Atheistic

"People are invariably surprised to hear me say I am both an atheist and an agnostic, as if this somehow weakens my certainty. I usually reply with a question like, "Well, are you a Republican or an American?" The two words serve different concepts and are not mutually exclusive. Agnosticism addresses knowledge; atheism addresses belief. The agnostic says, "I dont have a knowledge that God exists." The atheist says, "I dont have a belief that God exists." You can say both things at the same time. Some agnostics are atheistic and some are theistic." - Author: Dan Barker

Quotes About When You Know Its Over

"At first, when an idea, a poem, or the desire to write takes hold of you, work is a pleasure, a delight, and your enthusiasm knows no bounds. But later on you work with difficulty, doggedly, desperately. For once you have committed yourself to a particular work, inspiration changes its form and becomes an obsession, like a love-affair… which haunts you night and day! Once at grips with a work, we must master it completely before we can recover our idleness." - Author: Natalie Clifford Barney

Quotes About Wavering Faith

"And I think, OK. So a dog isnt the most important thing. But a dog like Honey loves one person completely, unwaveringly, with perfect faith. That has to be more important than most things.And Gabriel, I say. He has Gabriel too.Gil says nothing but I know the answer. The answer is that Gabriel cant save Matthew any more than Gil can, or Honey. Or Jake. But we are all woven together, like a piece of cloth, and we all support each other, for better or worse. Gabriel is just a baby but eventually he will see the world and his father as they are: imperfect, dangerous, peppered with betrayals and also with love." - Author: Meg Rosoff

Quotes About Music From Musicians

"Josie examined the booklet, candelabra on the cover, a program. Brahms, and then Psalm 16, Psalm 32, Bach. A prayer, the Mourners Kaddish, in the flamelike Hebrew, followed by an English pronunciation, a translation. At least she would not clap in the wrong part. She remembered that night at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Michael so handsome in his iridescent thrift-store suit and green silk tie, she in her Lana Turner black lace and spike heels. How they peered down from their seats in the top balcony at the horseshoe of musicians with their stands and instruments. When the music stopped, Michael caught hold of her hand. Lacing his fingers in hers, he tenderly bit her knuckles. She would have been the only one applauding." - Author: Janet Fitch
