[Just Ignore Him And He'll Go Away, My Mother Used To Say To Gillian When We Were Young And I Bugged Her. Just Ignore Him. All He Wants Is Attention. In Retrospect There Seems To Be Something Almost Cruel About That—to Simultaneously Acknowledge And Refuse Someone's Desire For Attention—especially A Child's. All He Wants Is Attention, As If It's Bad To Want Attention, Like Wanting Money Or Power Or Fame.]

Lucy Larcom Quotes

"I remember how beautiful the Merrimac looked to me in childhood, the first true river I ever knew; it opened upon my sight and wound its way through my heart like a dream realized; its harebells, its rocks, and its rapids, are far more fixed in my memory than anything about the sea."

Quotes About Church Friends

"In my return to church, I had learned the hard way to avoid assumptions about other peoples faith. For one thing, people kept surprising me. If I listened carefully to them, my conjectures about what they thought usually turned out to be wrong. For another thing, I was insecure enough about my own faith, such as it was, to resent other people telling me what they thought I believed and why they thought I believed it. So I tried to hear what my friends say about joining their loved ones after death without assuming I knew exactly what they meant." - Author: Margaret D. McGee

Quotes About Loving Our Bodies

"We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because its talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, its easy for the other to take that person for granted. Thats what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationship with your own body." - Author: Joshua Rosenthal

Quotes About Colour And Life

"I used to rush into strange dreams at night: dreams many-coloured, agitated, full of the ideal, the stirring, the stormy--dreams where, amidst unusual scenes, charged with adventure, with agitating risk and romantic chance, I still again and again met Mr. Rochester, always at some exciting crisis; and then the sense of being in his arms, hearing his voice, meeting his eye, touching his hand and cheek, loving him, being loved by him--the hope of passing a lifetime at his side, would be renewed, with all its first force and fire. Then I awoke. Then I recalled where I was, and how situated. Then I rose up on my curtainless bed, trembling and quivering; and then the still, dark night witnessed the convulsion of despair, and heard the burst of passion." - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About Talking Bad About Your Spouse

"The past is a curious thing. Its with you all the time. I suppose an hour never passes without your thinking of things that happened ten or twenty years ago, and yet most of the time its got no reality, its just a set of facts that youve learned, like a lot of stuff in a history book. Then some chance sight or sound or smell, especially smell, sets you going, and the past doesnt merely come back to you, youre actually IN the past. It was like that at this moment." - Author: George Orwell

Quotes About Evangelical

"Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on.I dont see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isnt that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat?" - Author: Hemant Mehta
