[It Was Getting Dark By The Time I Went Out, And Nobody Who Knows The Country Will Need To Be Told How Black Is The Darkness Of A November Night Under High Laurel Bushes And Yew-trees. I Walked Into The Heart Of The Shrubberies Two Or Three Times, Not Seeing A Step Before Me, Till I Came Out Upon The Broader Carriage-road, Where The Trees Opened A Little, And There Was A Faint Grey Glimmer Of Sky Visible, Under Which The Great Limes And Elms Stood Darkling Like Ghosts; But It Grew Black Again As I Approached The Corner Where The Ruins Lay. ("The Open Door")]

Charlie Savage Quotes

"According to James Manns Rise of the Vulcans, once a year in the 1980s, the Reagan administration flew Cheney to a secret bunker to practice rebuilding the government if the Soviets destroyed Washington. Cheneys role, Mann reported, was to use his White House chief of staff experience to run the government in the name of any surviving cabinet member who made it to the bunker. The Reagan plan ignored the Presidential Succession Act, a 1947 law that put two top congressional leaders higher in the line of succession than cabinet secretaries. The program also made no plan for reconstituting Congress, because "it would be easier to operate without them," a participant told Mann."

William Author Ward Quotes

"Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes the solutions, knows about difficulties, but believes they can be overcome, sees the negatives but accentuates the positives, is exposed to the worst but exceeds the best, has reason to complain but chooses to smile."

William Jones Quotes

"Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility."

Drew Curtis Quotes

"On the Internet, news is consumed a la carte. If someone shows up on the main page of a website and doesnt see anything of interest, they leave. This negatively impacts ad revenues. The solution on the Internet is to pack news websites full of things that will draw people in, regardless of whether they are news or not."

John M Ford Quotes

"I long for the simplicity of theatre. I want lessons learned, comeuppances delivered, people sorted out, all before your bladder gets distractingly full. Thats what I want. What I know is what we all know, whether well admit it or not: every attempt to impose the roundness of a well-made play on reality produces a disaster. Life just isnt so, nor will it be made so."

Quotes About Confined

"Ms Finney shared an office on the third floor with several other court reporters. Their software system was called Veritas. Theo had hacked into it before when he had been curious about something that happened in court. It was not a secure system because the information was available in open court. Anyone could walk into the courtroom and watch the trial. Anyone, of course, who was not confined by the rigors of middle school." - Author: John Grisham

Quotes About School Rivalries

"An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts, soul is neglected." - Author: Thomas Moore

Quotes About Sun Kissed

"On the day Contessa Carolina Fantoni was married, only one other living person knew that she was going blind, and he was not her groom.This was not because she had failed to warn them."I am going blind," she had blurted to her mother, in the welcome dimness of the family coach, her eyes still bright with tears from the searing winter sun. By this time, her peripheral vision was already gone. Carolina could feel her mother take her hand, but she had to turn to see her face. When she did, her mother kissed her, her own eyes full of pity."I have been in love, too," she said, and looked away." - Author: Carey Wallace

Quotes About Being Strong For Yourself

"My friends, ask gladness from God. Be glad as children, as birds in the sky. And let mans sin not disturb you in your efforts, do not feat that it will dampen your endeavor and keep it from being fulfilled, do not say, "Sin is strong, impiety is strong, the bad environment is strong, and we are lonely and powerless, the bad environment will dampen us and keep our good endeavor from being fulfilled." Flee from such despondency, my children! There is only one salvation for you: take yourself up, and make yourself responsible for the sins of men." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Feeling Blamed

"Id been feeling like this for a while, the continual looking back, the stuckness of it all.

The world would be the same, just a little bit worse." - Author: Sarah Winman

Quotes About Woodwinds

"I play trumpet. And I took all the music courses in college, so I can also play the string instruments, keyboard, the brass and woodwinds - but only well enough to teach them.
