Neal Shusterman Quotes

"In the end, blame didnt shine on an individual. It was a floodlight cast on all of us. And all because we longed for healing and happiness- as if happiness is a state of being. But its not. Happiness is a vector. Its movement. Like my own momentum across the pool, joy can only be defined by the speed at which youre moving away from pain."

Quotes About Time Marching On

"The whole crazy business seemed to pull out of my guts the very worst in me—my worst fears—the worst aspects of my character—my worst insecurities and feelings of shame and guilt. I didnt know it at the time, but that was exactly what was supposed to be happening. Thats what Solomonic magick is all about. The worst in me was my problem. The worst in me was the demon. When it finally dawned on me that I had successfully evoked the demon, and I had the worst of me trapped in that magick Triangle, I had no alternative but to harness and redirect its monstrous power and give it new marching orders. From then on, that particular demon would be working for me rather than against me." - Author: Lon Milo DuQuette

Quotes About Referido

"Me preguntó entonces si no me interesaba un cambio de vida. Contesté que no se cambia nunca de vida, que en cualquier caso todas valían lo mismo y que la mía aquí estaba lejos de disgustarme. Pareció descontento, me dijo que nunca respondía directamente, que no tenía ambición y que eso era desastroso en los negocios. Hubiera preferido no decepcionarlo, pero no veía razón alguna para cambiar de vida. Pensándolo bien, no me sentía desgraciado. Cuando era estudiante, tenía yo muchas ambiciones de ese tipo. Luego, cuando tuve que abandonar mis estudios, comprendí muy pronto que todo eso carecía de importancia." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Hesitations

"And I thought of the Transit of Venus: that though the bodies be vast and distant, and their motions occult, their hesitations retrograde, one could, I thought, with exceeding care and preparation, observe, and in their distance, know them, triangulate to arrive at the ambits of their motivation; and that in this calculation alone, one might banish uncertainty, and know at last what constituted other bodies, and how small the gulf that lies between us all." - Author: M.T. Anderson

Quotes About Tiny Miracles

"And I couldnt take my eyes off Pete. He ate dinner like he always did, in three or four huge, whoofing bites, before heading back out front to his cone of warmth, his coffee, his cigarettes, and ghostly tunes piping from his little transistor radio. And most important, to whatever thoughts drowned out the voices of his own family saying "hello" and "happy holidays."I watched him because I couldnt believe that could be anyones comfortable horizon. A tiny porch on a dark corner near a highway. We lucked out living on a planet made thrilling by billions of years of chance, catastrophe, miracles, and disaster, and hed rejected it. Youre offered the world every morning when you open your eyes. I was beginning to see Pete as a representative of all the people who shut that out, through cynicism, religion, fear, greed, or ritual." - Author: Patton Oswalt

Quotes About Looking For True Love

Quotes About Grope

"They knew where they were headed but they didnt know where they were going. Retina shrugged the thought. Roma complained about the possibility they were walking into a trap. After all, he was one of the scientists that decided Solstices fate. Retina was adamant no one knew him. Lorenzo didnt care about anything much but reaching Zharfar after Retina surgically removed his Unicell Groper. They were headed to Africa in what seemed a semi commercial private plane. Eight people including the pilots travelled. They werent supposed to know any more particulars. But Lorenzos watch placed the coordinates in both numbers and words. They were in West Africa, country Nigeria, state Osun, and township Isura. None of them had ever heard of it, the town, but they were there. And they had travelled for miles, over highly forested nonresidential areas and mountain peaks before they stopped. Wherever they were going was greatly isolated, Roma thought." - Author: Dew Platt

One-Eye knows; you should ask him.""But Loki died," she said, shaking her head. "He died on the field at Ragnarok.""Not quite." He pulled a face. "You know theres rather a lot the Oracle didnt foretell, and old tales have a habit of getting twisted.""But in any case, that was centuries ago," Maddy said bewildered. "I mean - that was the End of the World, wasnt it?""So?" said Loki impatiently. "This isnt the first time the world has come to an end, and it wont be the last either." - Author: Joanne Harris
