Quotes About Paranoid In Love

"Moneys like poison, Anna. Too much of it kills anything thats worth having. Too much dough makes you paranoid, always wondering who―if anybody―loves you, and whos just trying to get a piece of you. Truth be told, no one loved your Ma, not even Granny." - Author: H.M. Ward

Quotes About The Name Amanda

"1."Ahem. I know you hate Mondays, madam, but you picked the absolutely wrong one to play hooky. Or be sick. Yes, I suppose its vaguely possible that you are actually sick. Anyway, here we are at lunch, Sadie and I, witnessing total social disorder. Your friend Alexander Bainbridge is sitting at the usual table, but facing the room. Amanda Alstead is sitting at Table One. Or, should I say,sitting more or less on a Phillite senior boy, whose name is unimportant, at Table One. A very nice young lady at the next table over-you know, the one who writes about Mr. Darcy-has just informeed us that Amanda dumpled Alex over the break. On Thanksgiving Day,no less. By e-mail. No telling how much truth is there, but a lot more than a kernal, I would say. We have a large, seven-dollar bag o movie popcorn here. Thought youd like to know. Call me." - Author: Melissa Jensen

Quotes About Bright Smiles

"She walks in beauty, like the nightOf cloudless climes and starry skies;And all thats best of dark and brightMeet in her aspect and her eyes:Thus mellowd to that tender lightWhich heaven to gaudy day denies.One shade the more, one ray the less,Had half impaired the nameless graceWhich waves in every raven tress,Or softly lightens oer her face;Where thoughts serenely sweet expressHow pure, how dear their dwelling-place.And on that cheek, and oer that brow,So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,The smiles that win, the tints that glow,But tell of days in goodness spent,A mind at peace with allA heart whose love is innocent!" - Author: George Gordon Byron

Quotes About Death After Long Illness

"My husbands personality was filled with serenity and sunlight. Not even the incurable illness which fell upon him soon after our marriage could long cloud his brow. On the very night of his death he took me in his arms, and during the many months when he lay dying in his wheel chair, he often said jokingly to me: Well, have you already picked out a lover? I blushed with shame. Dont deceive me, he added on one occasion, that would seem ugly to me, but pick out an attractive lover, or preferably several. You are a splendid woman, but still half a child, and you need toys." - Author: Leopold von Sacher Masoch

Quotes About About Death

"I also know that not everyone will like what I do, and that there are many people who do love my work, and so I write for them, and for my own pleasure, and try not to brood too much over those who have different tastes. And I have written enough books now that I know the self-doubt and the anxiety are part of the creative process, and drive me to keep trying to do better, and keep me from becoming too cocksure about my writing, which is a form of creative death." - Author: Kate Forsyth

Quotes About Being Well Traveled

"I wish I could protect you from the world. Its a cold, dark place. It has very little light, where it used to abound in it, but alas, I am one lone candle. I cannot speak for the world. Just for what Ive seen and felt. Being in the world means you could very well realize how lost you are. You find out, you cannot find yourself all alone. However, as long as a light shines, all hope is not lost. One day well all know for certain which paths are best traveled, and which were left narrow." - Author: Jennifer Megan Varnadore

Quotes About Personhood

"When a traveler from the future must talk, he does not talk but whimpers. He whispers tortured sounds. He is agonized. For if he makes the slightest alteration in anything, he may destroy the future. At the same time, he is forced to witness events without being part of them, without changing them. He envies the people who live in their own time, who can act at will, oblivious of the future, ignorant of the effects of their actions. But he cannot act. He is an inert gas, a ghost, a sheet without soul. He has lost his personhood. He is an exile of time." - Author: Alan Lightman

Quotes About Getting Job

"I loved getting my M. B. A., and I really enjoyed being an accountant and financial analyst before I quit my day job twenty-five years ago to write full time. I just liked writing more…plus, I knew even then that as a full-time writer, Id get plenty of chances to do business-type stuff, while as an accountant, I probably wouldnt get a lot of opportunities to write about dragons." - Author: Patricia C.
