Douglas Petrie Quotes

"Glory: I look around at this world youre so eager to be a part of and all I see is six billion lunatics looking for the fastest ride out. Whos not crazy? Look around, everyones drinking, smoking, shooting up, shooting each other, or just plain screwing their brains out cause they dont want em anymore. Im crazy? Honey, Im the original one-eyed chicklet in the kingdom of the blind, cause at least I admit the world makes me nuts."

Michael Caine Quotes

"Do you know that the harder thing to do and the right thing to do are usually the same thing? Nothing that has meaning is easy,"Easy" doesnt enter into grown-up life."

Mark Mossa Quotes

"What our closest friends do for us is to teach us true selflessness. We learn that while it might be safer for them if we keep them out, true friendship means letting them in. We cannot decide for them what they are willing to suffer with us and for us. While we certainly dont want to see our friends suffer, friendship isnt about protecting each other from pain so much as it is about helping each other to become what God has called us to be."

Quotes About Being Too Efficient

"The people who hanged Christ never, to do them justice, accused him of being a bore - on the contrary, they thought him too dynamic to be safe. It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality and surround him with an atmosphere of tedium. We have efficiently pared the claws of the Lion of Judah, certified him "meek and mild" and recommended him as a fitting household pet for pale curates and pious old ladies." - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

Quotes About Debit Cards

"Fraud is common when you give away billions. Fraud related to Hurricane Katrina spending is estimated to top $2 billion. In addition, debit cards provided to hurricane victims were used to pay for Caribbean vacations, NFL tickets, Dom Perignon champagne, Girls Gone Wild videos, and at least one sex change operation." - Author: Mark Skousen

Quotes About Fundament

"Financial capacity and political perspicacity are inversely correlated. Long-run salvation by men of business has never been highly regarded if it means disturbance of orderly life and convenience in the present. So inaction will be advocated in the present even though it means deep trouble in the future. Here, at least equally with Communism, lies the threat to Capitalism. It is what causes men who know that things are going quite wrong to say that things are fundamentally sound." - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith

Quotes About Eona

"Like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake and Robert B. Parker and oh so many others, I want to die with my boots on, facedown on my keyboard if possible, in the middle of a sentence." - Author: Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Quotes About Comun

"Los hombres que comparten los mismos dormitorios, ya sean soldados o prisioneros, contraen un lazo extraño como si, al quitarse las armaduras con la ropa, se hermanaran cada noche, por encima de sus diferencias, en la vieja comunidad del sueño y del cansancio" - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Missy

"Its appealing to imagine that if we can just get that one thing in our life to work out-- [...] that everything will be solved, absolved, good to go for good. I slipped into that way of thinking way too often, I admitted to Missy, even though I knew that sometimes in life all of a sudden there you were--standing with your Technics turntables just across the Canadian border, and youre not a new you, youre just you, but in Canada." - Author: Davy Rothbart

Quotes About Officials

"We have too much technological progress, life is too hectic, and our society has only one goal: to invent still more technological marvels to make life even easier and better. The craving for every new scientific discovery breeds a hunger for greater comfort and the constant struggle to achieve it. All that kills the soul, kills compassion, understanding, nobility. It leaves no time for caring what happens to other people, least of all criminals. Even the officials in Venezuelas remote areas are better for theyre also concerned with public peace. It gives them many headaches, but they seem to believe that bringing about a mans salvation is worth the effort. I find that magnificent." - Author: Henri Charrière

Quotes About Ips

"And maybe one winter it will get too cold and Ill forget about the summers we once shared. My family portrait mightfold in too, producing the same horrific effect as Jeremys: that I, all along, had another sibling who eclipsed and became me—a prosperous sibling, an imposturous sibling, who outgrew a sense of time and place in which the three of us were everything to one another. Then only my blood in the sea could unfold and lead me back out of the origami." - Author: Nicholaus Patnaude

Quotes About Magico

"Per tutti questi secoli le donne hano avuto la funzione di specchi, dal potere magico e delizioso di riflettere raddoppiata la figura delluomo. [...]Perciò Napoleone e Mussolini insistono tanto enfaticamente sullinferiorità delle donne, perché se esse non fossero inferiori cesserebbero di ingrandire loro. Questo serve in parte a spiegare la necessità che gli uomini spesso sentono delle donne. E serve a spiegare come li fa sentire inquieti la critica femminile; come a lei sia impossibile dir loro che il libro è brutto o il quadro difettoso, o cose del genere, senza provocare assai più dolore e suscitare assai più rabbia di quanta potrebbe suscitarne un uomo con la stessa critica. Perché se la donna comincia a dire la verità, la figura nello specchio rimpicciolisce; luomo diventa meno adatto alla vita." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About London Weather

"The heavy spacesuits are spectacular to look at but very hot. Putting one on was like going from chilly London winter weather to the Bahamas in just minutes." - Author: Kathleen Quinlan
