Quotes About Hazy Days

"The fog turned a strange yellow, then orange, then black. The gilded winged statue Victory at Buckingham Palace retreated into mist. St. Pauls was a hazy outline, ghostlike in the gloom. La Traviata at the Sadlers Wells theatre was terminated midway because the audience could no longer see the singers on stage. Pedestrians noticed how everything below the waist disappeared. Knees, shoes, dogs became indistinguishable. The Great Smog was days and nights of people and things passing out of sight and existence. It seemed a fitting time for a mother to evaporate." - Author: Kyo Maclear

Quotes About Godly Woman

"We hear about every other kind of women- beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career women, talented women, divorced women. But so seldom do we hear of a godly woman - or of a godly man for that matter.....It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America......it is a far, far better thing in the realms of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultra modern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith..... the world has enough woman who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The World had enough woman who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct. " Quote from Peter Marshall in the book Un Compromising" - Author: Hannah Farver

I always hoped that after the prince found Cinderella and they rode away in their magnificent carriage, after a few miles she turned to him and said, "Could you drop me off down the road please? Now that Ive finally escaped my life of horrific abuse, Id like to see something of the world, you know?... Ill catch back up with you later, Prince, once Ive found my own way." - Author: Rachel Cohn

Quotes About Having A Blast

"I say, White-Jacket, dye mind me? there never was a very great man yet who spent all his life inland. A snuff of the sea, my boy, is inspiration; and having been once out of sight of land, has been the making of many a true poet and the blasting of many pretenders; for, dye see, theres no gammon about the ocean; it knocks the false keel right off a pretenders bows; it tells him just what he is, and makes him feel it, too. A sailors life, I say, is the thing to bring us mortals out. What does the blessed Bible say? Dont it say that we main-top-men alone see the marvellous sights and wonders? Dont deny the blessed Bible, now! dont do it! How it rocks up here, my boy!" holding on to a shroud; "but it only proves what Ive been saying—the sea is the place to cradle genius! Heave and fall, old sea!" - Author: Herman Melville
