Stephanie Georgopulus Quotes

"Miss someone until they come back, or until you come back, until their absence in your life becomes something to be avoided at all costs. Miss them until you dont have to anymore, until youre reunited in your favorite booth in your favorite restaurant ordering your favorite meal, miss them until it feels like you never left. Or miss them until you cant anymore, until the things you miss are identified and cataloged as things and not a person, until you figure out that easy company and long talks and unblinking, all-knowing eye contact will find you again the way they found you the first time. Miss someone until you dont."

Hermann Boerhaave Quotes

"It were indeed to be wishd that our art had been less ingenious, in contriving means destructive to mankind; we mean those instruments of war, which were unknown to the ancients, and have made such havoc among the moderns. But as men have always been bent on seeking each others destruction by continual wars; and as force, when brought against us, can only be repelled by force; the chief support of war, must, after money, be now sought in chemistry."

Quotes About Robert Kennedy

"In advising the heads of state to learn from tragedy rather than perpetuate its existence Robert Kennedy excalimed, "Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom, not a guide by which to live."

Quotes About Devon Still

"Its not that fact of him telling me hes not going to kill me that assures me Ive got some time to breathe. Predo could look me in the eye and tell me whiskeys good and cigarettes are better and Id still need a drink and a Lucky to believe hes not lying. The man breeds lies. He spawns them asexually, with no need for any assistance. He exhales and lies fill the air. Alone in a room, he mutters lies to himself to keep from falling into the trap of truth-telling. In the day, sleeping in his bed, deep in the safest heart of Coalition headquarters, he dreams in lies. The better to keep his left hand from knowing what betrayals his right has planned.Stretched on the rack and burned with hot irons, Dexter Predo will be in no danger of revealing the truth. Living so far beyond its borders." - Author: Charlie Huston

Quotes About Thinking Bigger

"Advice? Fail constantly. Because the word doesnt mean what you think it means, especially when youre an artist. I use the word artist to mean everything from songwriting to writing a novel to even writing video games. Anything that tells a story, which is almost any medium. Gotta take risks, you gotta go through multiple drafts which means you have to FAIL, a lot. So you wont always get the reaction you always want from every single person, so when you lose that fear of failure, when you stop even thinking of it as failure, and you push yourself farther, youll take bigger risks, and eventually, after about six or seven hundred rejections, youll find success. And youll find a way of conveying what you really want to say, in the best manner." - Author: Victor Giannini

Quotes About The Ocean And Memories

"The ocean of the past, I still hide from so much of it and rely on all that I dont run from. Everything before him, I waited for the nightmare to end, and it did when he accepted me into his arms. It was a new birth, a new life, but it flashed too briefly and left me with only these rabid bits of time that eat me, these memories that haunt me, but he, the ghost I need, remains lost." - Author: Edward J. Rathke

Quotes About Ideas And Dreams

"Amory, sorry for them, was still not sorry for himself - art, politics, religion, whatever his medium should be, he knew he was safe now, free from all hysteria - he could accept what was acceptable, roam, grow, rebel, sleep deep through many nights...There was no God in his heart, he knew; his ideas were still in riot; there was ever the pain of memory; the regret for his lost youth - yet the waters of disillusion had left a deposit on his soul, responsibility and a love of life, the faint stirring of old ambitions and unrealized dreams...And he could not tell why the struggle was worth while, why he had determined to use to the utmost himself and his heritage from the personalities he had passed...He stretched out his arms to the crystalline, radiant sky."I know myself," he cried, "but that is all." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
