Bessie Anderson Stanley Quotes

"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of ones self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded."

JA Baker Quotes

"Approach him across open ground with a steady unfaltering movement. Let your shape grow in size but do not alter its outline. Never hide yourself unless concealment is complete. Be alone. Shun the furtive oddity of man, cringe from the hostile eyes of farms. Learn to fear. To share fear is the greatest bond of all. The hunter must become the thing he hunts."

Berton Braley Quotes

"Success"If you want a thing bad enoughTo go out and fight for it,Work day and night for it,Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for itIf only desire of itMakes you quite mad enoughNever to tire of it,Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for itIf life seems all empty and useless without itAnd all that you scheme and you dream is about it,If gladly youll sweat for it,Fret for it,Plan for it,Lose all your terror of God or man for it,If youll simply go after that thing that you want.With all your capacity,Strength and sagacity,Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,Nor sickness nor painOf body or brainCan turn you away from the thing that you want,If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,Youll get it!"

Chris Campanioni Quotes

"And maybe I knew how to look at a person, that exact angle to display, the way to shift the light on my face, but now I looked vacant, empty, naked … and for a fraction of a second—maybe more, maybe even a full second—I gave them fear, and finally, like a reel of film had been removed and I had to wait for another to be inserted, I smiled again."

Quotes About Christmasa

"At ChristmasA man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;He is almost what he should be when the Christmas seasons here;Then hes thinking more of others than hes thought the months before,And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime." - Author: Edgar A.

Quotes About Feeding The Hungry

"That churchgoers do the lions share of the charitable work in our communities is simply untrue. They get credit for it because they do a better job of tying the good works they do to their creed. But according to a 1998 study, 82% of volunteerism by churchgoers falls under the rubric of "church maintenance" activities -- volunteerism entirely within, and for the benefit of, the church building and immediate church community. As a result of this siphoning of volunteer energy into the care and feeding of churches themselves, most of the volunteering that happens out in the larger community -- from AIDS hospices to food shelves to international aid workers to those feeding the hungry and housing the homeless and caring for the elderly -- comes from the category of "unchurched" volunteers." - Author: Dale McGowan

Quotes About A Boy Cheating On You

"Zulu!" I raced up to his side and stopped him. "I can explain my weird behavior.""So youre not just crazy?" His blond eyebrows rose as he grinned."Well, thats the point. I am crazy." I raked my fingers through my hair and blew out a long breath. "I set my ex-boyfriend and the two women he was cheating with on fire. They were all in the hospital for several months."He didnt say anything and just continued to stare.Feel like running away yet?"So," I said. "Im not the sanest person you could spend your time trying to be with."He flashed me a huge smile. "If someone touched you now, they would be lucky to have only one month in the hospital." Oh, my goodness."Okay. I dont think you understand me." I held my hands out to my sides. "What I am trying to say is Im insanely jealous and act on it in violent ways that are frankly detrimental—""You have a few more weeks." He tapped his watch. "And then Im coming for you."Coming for me?" - Author: Kenya Wright

Quotes About Meta

"When you write, its like braiding your hair. Taking a handful of coarse unruly strands and attempting to bring them unity. Your fingers have still not perfected the task. Some of the braids are long, others are short. Some are thick, others are thin. Some are heavy. Others are light. Like the diverse women of your family. Those whose fables and metaphors, whose similes and soliloquies, whose diction and je ne sais quoi daily slip into your survival soup, by way of their fingers." - Author: Edwidge Danticat

Quotes About Squirrel

"If Nightcloud were a gentle, loving cat like Leafpool, or feisty and warmhearted like Squirrelflight, it would be easier to feel sorry for her.

Quotes About Continued Excellence

"I love you, Savannah, and I always will," I breathed. "Youre the best thing thats ever happened to me. You were my best friend and my lover, and I dont regret a single moment of it. You made me feel alive again, and most of all, you gave me my father. Ill never forget you for that. Youre always going to be the very best part of me. Im sorry it has to be this way, but I have to leave, and you have to see your husband." As I spoke, I could feel her shaking with sobs, and I continued to hold her for a long time afterward. When we finally seperated, I knew that it would be the last time I ever held her. I backed away, my eyes holding Savannahs. "I love you, too, John," she said. "Good-bye." I raised a hand." - Author: Nicholas Sparks

They are as sharp as needles, too; all they want is organization." - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
