[Later That Evening I Lay Down In Min's Empty Bed Upstairs And Pulled Her White Sheet Up Over My Head. I Felt For My Kneecaps And Hip Bones. I Lay Perfectly Still, Arms Down, Palms Up. I Closed My Eyes And Pretended I Was Floating In Space, Then At Sea, Then Not Floating At All.I Hummed An Old Beach Boys Tune. In My Room... Min Had Taught Me How To Play It On Her Guitar When We Were Kids.]

Meryl Gordon Quotes

"DisciplineI am old and I have hadmore than my share of good and bad.Ive had love and sorrow, seen sudden deathand been left alone and of love bereft.I thought I would never love againand I thought my life was grief and pain.The edge between life and death was thin, but then I discovered discipline.I learned to smile when I felt sad, I learned to take the good and the bad, I learned to care a great deal morefor the world about me than before.I began to forget the "Me" and "I"and joined in life as it rolled by: this may not mean sheer ecstasybut is better by far than "I" and "Me."

Liv Christine Hoem Quotes

"Inspiration do not come and cannot be found, it has to exist - somewhere, somehow. Do believe that what you are doing is the most important thing in this world, and do believe that your words can be magical. Because I know they can be and I know they are. If you feel that you are lost in your own mind, dont think, just write. Sometimes we have to erase our thoughts and memories to gain enough strength to be able to write down our inner thoughts. If you dont know what it is, if you think its ridiculous or silly, youre definitely on the right way. Sometimes you will hate your words and sometimes you will love them. This is the fun part of greatness in which the other part definitely will be your devil. Remember; with greatness comes obstacles."

Steve Chabot Quotes

"Theres so much mudslinging going on, and people get so turned off by that. It seems like neither party is aware of that. Theyre too concerned with blasting each other."

Quotes About Being Unscrupulous

"Music makes me forget myself, my true condition, it carries me off into another state of being, one that isnt my own: under the influence of music I have the illusion of feeling things I dont really feel, of understanding things I dont understand, being able to do things Im not able to do (...) Can it really be allowable for anyone who feels like it to hypnotize another person, or many other persons, and then do what he likes with them? Particularly if the hypnotist is the first unscrupulous individual who happens to come along?" - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Passion And Love

"I ask the impossible: love me forever.Love me when all desire is gone.Love me with the single mindedness of a monk.When the world in its entirety,and all that you hold sacred advise youagainst it: love me still more.When rage fills you and has no name: love me.When each step from your door to our job tires you--love me; and from job to home again, love me, love me.Love me when youre bored--when every woman you see is more beautiful than the last,or more pathetic, love me as you always have:not as admirer or judge, but withthe compassion you save for yourselfin your solitude.Love me as you relish your loneliness,the anticipation of your death,mysteries of the flesh, as it tears and mends.Love me as your most treasured childhood memory--and if there is none to recall--imagine one, place me there with you.Love me withered as you loved me new.Love me as if I were forever--and I, will make the impossiblea simple act,by loving you, loving you as I do" - Author: Ana Castillo

Quotes About Appraisal

"As I see it, a persons culture represents his appraisal of the things that make up his life. And a fellow becomes cultured, I believe, by selecting that which is fine and beautiful in life and throwing aside that which is mediocre or phony. Sort of a series of free, very personal choices, you might say. If this is true, then I think it follows that ‘freedom is the most precious word to culture. Freedom to believe what you choose and read, think and say and be with what you choose. In America, we are guaranteed these freedoms. It is the constitutional privilege of every American to become cultured or to grow up like Donald Duck. I believe that this spiritual and intellectual freedom, which we Americans enjoy, is our greatest cultural blessing. Therefore, it seems to me, that the first duty of culture is to defend freedom and resist all tyranny." - Author: Walt Disney Company
