[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.]

Kay Whitlock Quotes

"Sentencing enhancements wont get police to investigate crimes they dont take seriously to begin with. They wont stop police from harassing trans women on the street because they assume all trans women are sex workers. They wont have any effect against police officers who believe they wont be held accountable. They wont sway the minds of jurors who think I killed her because she was trans is an adequate excuse. Sentencing enhancements will allow them to dole out harsher punishments against the people they think are more deserving. And we already know that the legal system sees people of color, women, sex workers, immigrants, and the homeless as more deserving of punishment.

Leo Durocher Quotes

"I made a game effort to argue but two things were against me: the umpires and the rules."

Keith Donohue Quotes

"Its only a story. As if such words made it less real. But I did not believe him even then, for stories were written down, and the words on the page were proof enough. Fixed and permanent in time, the words, if anything, made the people and places more real than the everchanging world."

A Grace Martin Quotes

"That is why the stone is so dangerous, Nabrie," said Dart. "I would not see you too fall victim to its powers. Let us only hope that Fireskin has truly purified the stone, and not merely intensified the potential for evil that is in it. I fear the fire may only have fuelled the power of the spirits in its heart."

AH Scott Quotes

"Never let a red line become the cage from which there is no escape. Constricting yourself in statements without any actions coming forth in the future in not engaging in compromise or negotiation will hang you on a tightrope by your own tongue. More talk, less squawk may just be the key to grace in unlocking a sense of mutual respect. Thumping a chest and making a threat from many a mile away from a situation is good for an ability to show off how well one can speak in broad tones. Yet, to sit down across from someone and speak to them as an equal, would go a lot further in balancing the plateau of respect shown. Maybe the red line will fly away and the need to always cling to it shall diminish with ears that truly listen to one another" - A.H. Scott 3/3/14"

Linda Ty Casper Quotes

"He was the old breed of Filipino, almost extinct, who required that he deserve what he received; who would feel guilt, not only shame or embarrassment; who accounted for each day in the office and observed public trust as if it were a word of God. But even God was nowhere. The new theology proclaimed him dead. Long live Man! Love live Me!"

Quotes About Humours

"There he was. The infant Titus. His eyes were open but he was quite still. The puckered-up face of the newly-born child, old as the world, wise as the roots of trees. Sin was there and goodness, love, pity and horror, and even beauty for his eyes were pure violet. Earths passions, earths griefs, earths incongruous, ridiculous humours - dormant, yet visible in the wry pippin of a face." - Author: Mervyn Peake

Quotes About Church Folk

"Mrs. Levesque will put me to use as witness, as crutch, as Kleenex, as proxy for Jean-Pierre -- a temporary substitute for all the neighbors, church folk, friends, and family members who will soon come bursting through her door to share her grief. I am a transitional love object, an objet damour; I am Rab-Rab, Blankie, Jesus, Mama. What a strange privilege it is to be so used." - Author: Kate Braestrup

"-La amo tanto que cuando me aseguró que ella sería feliz contigo, me juré a mí mismo que nunca volvería a hablar de mis deseos jamás, que nunca indicaría mi cariño ni por palabra o gesto y nunca por acción o discurso que violaran su felicidad. Mis sentimientos no han cambiado, y sin embargo me importan lo suficiente ella y tú como para no decir ni una palabra que pueda amenazar lo que ustedes han encontrado." - Author: Cassandra Clare

Čovek se zapita kako se to onda zove, to što mi biramo da živimo: beskrajna hrabrost ili beskrajni kukavičluk? Čini mi se, Hamlet je poreklom bio iz naših krajeva." - Author: Marko Šelić

Quotes About Stout

"Since brass, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundless sea,But sad mortality oer-sways their power, How with this rage shall beauty hold a plea, Whose action is no stronger than a flower? O, how shall summers honey breath hold out Against the wreckful siege of battering days, When rocks impregnable are not so stout, Nor gates of steel so strong, but Time decays?O fearful meditation! where, alack, Shall Times best jewel from Times chest lie hid?Or what strong hand can hold his swift foot back? Or who his spoil of beauty can forbid? O, none, unless this miracle have might, That in black ink my love may still shine bright" - Author: William Shakespeare
