Tom Cardamone Quotes

"Most species of dragons had retired or, mistaken for dinosaurs, collectively hung their bones in museums, waiting in the wings for just the right time to reemerge, to scorch schools and char church parking lots."

Steve Earle Quotes

WNP Barbellion Quotes

"An appetite for knowledge is apt to rush one off ones feet, like any other appetite if not curbed.

Sarah Monette Quotes

"Consider the stars. Among them are no passions, no wars. They know neither love nor hatred. Did man but emulate the stars, would not his soul become clear and radiant as they are? But mans spirit draws him like a moth to the ephemera of this world, and in their heat he is consumed entire."

Quotes About India Gate

"Being a woman in India is an altogether different experience. You cant always see the power women hold, but it is there, in the firm grasp of the matriarchs who still rule most families. It has not been easy for Sarla to navigate the female path: she has become a master traveler, but one with no pupil. She thought she might develop this relationship with one of her daughters-in-law, but the others, like Somer, didnt quite fill the role. And when they had babies, they relied on their own mothers, leaving her once again in the company of men. But now, Sarla muses as she glances at the clock, anticipating Krishnans arrival, she will finally get her granddaughter." - Author: Shilpi Somaya Gowda

Quotes About Lost Wallet

"Holocausts do not amaze me. Rapes and child slavery do not amaze me. And Franklin, I know you feel otherwise, but Kevin does not amaze me. I am amazed when I drop a glove in the street and a teenager runs two blocks to return it. I am amazed when a checkout girl flashes me a wide smile with my change, though my own face had been a mask of expedience. Lost wallets posted to their owners, strangers who furnish meticulous directions, neighbors who water each others houseplants - these things amaze me." - Author: Lionel Shriver

Quotes About Sailors And The Sea

"And now the minister prayed. A good, generous prayer it was, and went into details: it pleaded for the church, and the little children of the church; for the other churches of the village; for the village itself; for the county; for the State; for the State officers; for the United States; for the churches of the United States; for Congress; for the President; for the officers of the Government; for poor sailors, tossed by stormy seas; for the oppressed millions groaning under the heel of European monarchies and Oriental despotisms; for such as have the light and the good tidings, and yet have not eyes to see nor ears to hear withal; for the heathen in the far islands of the sea; and closed with a supplication that the words he was about to speak might find grace and favor, and be as seed sown in fertile ground, yielding in time a grateful harvest of good. Amen." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Short Crowns

"What is man—and of course the writer means all of us puny little insignificant creatures—what is a mere human being that God who made the immense universe should ever notice? She chuckled. The sky does take you down to size.Not even big as bugs. Not even a speck of dust to the nearest star, Angel agreed.But the psalmist answers his own question. "Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor..." What? Angel asked, not sure she had heard right.A little lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor.The real angels? Do you believe that?Yes, Angel, I do. When people look down on me, and these days—she laughed shortly—these days everyone over the age of five does. When people look down on me, I remember that God looks at this pitiful, twisted old thing that I have become and crowns me with glory." - Author: Katherine Paterson

Quotes About Cliff Burton

Quotes About Loving Faithfully

"Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. Whats one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully." - Author: Jon Katz

Quotes About Shaky

"Meaning is a shaky edifice we build out of scraps, dogmas, childhood injuries, newspaper articles, chance remarks, old fillms, small victories, people hated, people loved; perhaps it is because our sense of what is the case is constructed from such inadequate materials that we defend it so fiercely, even to death." - Author: Salman Rushdie

Quotes About Melodie

"Singing in Spanish is much more honest, much closer to my roots. For me, Spanish is essential. I still think in Spanish, dream in Spanish. Its the melodies and arrangements that transmit meaning." - Author: Juanes

Quotes About Spiritual Deliverance

"I believe the message in the hymn "Rise Up, O Men of God" (Hymns, no. 324) is a plea, a call, a divine invitation for us to rise above the telestial tinsel of our time; to deny ourselves of ungodliness and clothe ourselves in the mantle of holiness; to reach and stretch and grasp for that spiritual direction and sacred empowerment promised to the Lords agents, to those charged to act in the name of our Principal, Jesus Christ; and to point the way to salvation and deliverance and peace in a world that finds itself enshrouded in darkness, a world that yearns for spiritual leadership." - Author: Robert L. Millet

Quotes About Jesus The Saviour

"Stained-glass windows glowed faintly in the moonlight streaming through, illuminating the sculpture of Christ on the cross that hung above the altar. It was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. Then the sculpture seemed to move, and Christs body twisted on the cross to look directly at him. ...Jesus, the son of God and his saviour, seemed be smiling at him." - Author: Phillip W. Simpson
