EF Benson Quotes

"...vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else, and because bathing and basking on the shore cannot be considered an employment but only an apotheosis of loafing. ("Expiation")"

Bob Schieffer Quotes

"If you get asked a really tough question and you give a really good answer, you come off looking really good."

SL Jennings Quotes

"This is not a story for the faint of heart; this is the story of one womans very real struggle through a world against her, the people who hurt her, her real life demons and the people who showed her that every gray sky, no matter how dark, has a sun waiting to break through."

"Age brings maturity, experience ripens it."

Laplace Quotes

"The genius of Laplace was a perfect sledge hammer in bursting purely mathematical obstacles; but, like that useful instrument, it gave neither finish nor beauty to the results. In truth, in truism if the reader please, Laplace was neither Lagrange nor Euler, as every student is made to feel. The second is power and symmetry, the third power and simplicity; the first is power without either symmetry or simplicity. But, nevertheless, Laplace never attempted investigation of a subject without leaving upon it the marks of difficulties conquered: sometimes clumsily, sometimes indirectly, always without minuteness of design or arrangement of detail; but still, his end is obtained and the difficulty is conquered."

Legs McNeil Quotes

"I remember my favorite nights were just getting drunk and walking around outside the East Village kicking over garbage cans. Just the night. Just that it would be night again. And you could go out, you know? It just seemed glorious. (Please Kill Me.)"

NN Light Quotes

"Happiness surrounds those who are happy."

Carmen Renee Berry Quotes

"I continue to experience my faith in God as a personal relationship between the two of us. However, having admitted my commonality with the human race, I find that my faith does not flourish in isolation. As much as I hate to admit it, my faith is enhanced and enlarged when in relationship to other less-than-perfect human beings. Even though at times other Christians can be quite annoying, I feel very fortunate to have found my way back to a spiritual community that puts up with me even when Im a bit annoying myself."

Doris Lilly Quotes

Quotes About Going Off The Grid

"Andras went through the Sortie doors and walked out into a city that no longer contained his brother. He walked on benumbed feet in the new black Oxfords his brother had brought him from Hungary. He didnt care who passed him on the street or where he was going. If he had stepped off the curb into the air instead of down into the gutter, if he had climbed the void above the cars and between the buildings until he was looking down at the rooftops with their red-clay chimney pots, their irregular curving grid, and if he had then kept climbing until he was wading through the slough of low-lying clouds in the winter sky, he would have felt no shock or joy, no wonder or surprise, just the same leaden dampness in his limbs." - Author: Julie Orringer

Quotes About Lose

"And some go the other way, the most lethal way of all: when the pressure gets to be too much, its not their nerve that breaks, its their fear. They lose the capacity to be afraid, even when they should be. These cant ever go home again. Theyre like those First World War airmen, the finest ones, shining in their recklessness and invincible, who got home and found that home had no place for what they were. Some people are undercovers all the way to the bone; the job has taken them whole." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About Eye Twitching

"Jeeves," I said, "listen attentively. I dont want to give the impression that I consider myself one of those deadly coves who exercise an irresistible fascination over one and all and cant meet a girl without wrecking her peace of mind in the first half-minute. As a matter of fact, its rather the other way with me, for girls on entering my presence are mostly inclined to give me the raised eyebrow and the twitching upper lip." - Author: P.G. Wodehouse

Quotes About Drinking And Life

"One thing Ive noticed since I quit drinking is that a person usually has two or three sets of impulses scratching away at some internal door at any given time. If youre sober--if youre alert, and paying attention to those impulses, and not yielding to the instinct to anesthetize them--you can receive a lot of guidance about where to go, what to do next in life." - Author: Caroline Knapp

Quotes About Burla

"Era un placer nuevo e intenso. Alguna vez se habían de imponer los pobres y quedar los ricos debajo.
