S Evan Townsend Quotes

"All governments, even these precious "democracies," derive all their power by force.

Steve Goodier Quotes

"I believe a family can be like that sports team. A successful family wins as a team. But if its members are intent upon winning their own individual battles with one another, the team loses. A winning solution is to work out the differences and, when its over, let it be over. Then they can get back in the game as a team."

Brian Roberts Quotes

Quotes About Letterpress

"I returned to my book—Bewicks History of British Birds: the letterpress thereof I cared little for, generally speaking; and yet there were certain introductory pages that, child as I was, I could not pass quite as a blank.

Quotes About Try Hards

"Trying every day to tell the truth is hard. There are harder things, of course—arguably, living with lies and meaninglessness, living in despair is harder, but its hardship disguised as luxury and easier perhaps to grow accustomed to, since truth is usually the enemy of custom. There are harder things than writing, being President Obama, for instance, and having to deal with House Republicans, or trying to fix the leak at the Fukushima reactor, these are harder, but writing is hard." - Author: Tony Kushner

Quotes About Saving Girl Child

"In this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania, quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked. Yet a childs need for quietness is the same today as it has always been--it may even be greater--for quietness is an essential part of all awareness. In quiet times and sleepy times a child can dwell in thoughts of his own, and in songs and stories of his own." - Author: Margaret Wise Brown

Quotes About Nasrudin

"Instant Reading. A certain famous Fakir was claiming in the village that he could teach an illiterate person to read by a lightning technique. Nasrudin stepped out of the crowd: Very well, teach me – now. The Fakir touched the Mullas forehead, and said: Now go home immediately and read a book. Half an our later Nasrudin was back in the market-place, clutching a book. The Fakir had gone on his way. Can you read now, Mulla? the people asked him. Yes, I can read – but that is not the point. Where is that charlatan? How can he be a charlatan if he has caused you to read without learning? Because this book, which is authoritative, says: "All Fakirs are frauds"." - Author: Idries Shah

Quotes About Inspirational Promotions

"Most inspirational writers were born as driftwood and will say they have been beaten against every shoreline during their life. We understand storms. We understand drowning. We understand being devalued. We understand being stranded alone on a beach. God made us this way so we would know where every lighthouse can be found and tell others how to find them. We were never meant to stand on the beach with you because every rescue we do rescues ourselves. We always go back to the sea because that is where driftwood belongs--forever searching for answers to our endless questions and sharing what we learned...(2012, Writers Conference)" - Author: Shannon L. Alder

"Amie blinked through the haze of her thoughts and the constant drum of the rains. A golden light swung back and forth in the distance like a pendulum and every second drew closer.
