"Tell me have you ever wanted someone so much it hurts?Your lips keep trying to speak, but you just cant find the words.Well I had this dream once, I held it in my hand...You had me dim the lights, you danced just like a child.The wine spilled on your dress and all you did was smile.Yeah, it was perfect.I hold it in my mind.When we owned the night."

Jesse Metcalfe Quotes

"I dont think Im destined to be the eternal bachelor."

Milissa R Bailey Quotes

"True writers know that writing is not something they feel required to do,or to make a living they must do, it is quite frankly like breathing. Somecan breathe often and fluently, some short breaths, some a long exhaleand for many of us it is the patient steady breathing surrounding life."

Sean Gabler Quotes

"This morning could have been perfect. The cruel truth is they have never been. Give us loneliness or give us death."

Marybeth Lorbiecki Quotes

"But it was Aldos pen that became his most forceful tool. He started a newsletter for rangers called the Carson Pine Cone. Aldo used it to "scatter seeds of knowledge, encouragement, and enthusiasm." Most of the Pine Cones articles, poems, jokes, editorials, and drawings were Aldos own. His readers soon realized that the forest animals were as important to him as the trees. His goal was to bring back the "flavor of the wilds."

JM Coetzee Quotes

"That was why, later on, he began to lose interest in photography: first when colour took over, then when it became plain that the old magic of light-sensitive emulsions was waning, that to the rising generation the enchantment lay in a techne of images without substance, images that could flash through the ether without residing anywhere, that could be sucked into a machine and emerge from it doctored, untrue. He gave up recording the world in photographs then, and transferred his energies to saving the past."

"Thanks to Scoop, Ive learned a lot about how the male mind works, and as a result Ive been having nightmares for months."

Olga Lengyel Quotes

"Yo no soy entendida en política ni economista. Soy simplemente una mujer que padeció, que perdió a su marido, a sus padres, a sus hijos y a sus amigos. Yo sé que el mundo tendrá que compartir colectivamente la responsabilidad. Los alemanes pecaron criminalmente, pero lo mismo hicieron las demás naciones aunque sólo sea por negarse a creer y a afanarse día y noche en salvar a los desventurados y desposeídos, por cuantos medios estuviesen a su alcance. Sé que si la gente de todo el mundo se propone que de ahora en adelante reine una justicia indivisible y que no haya más Hitlers, algos se conseguirá. Indudablemente, todos aquellos cuyas manos se hayan manchado con sangre nuestra, bien sea directa bien indirectamente, tienen que pagar por los crímenes que han cometido, lo mismo si son hombres que si son mujeres."

Quotes About Boasting In The Bible

"Thinking is indispensable on the path to passion for God. Thinking is not an end in itself. Nothing but God himself is finally an end in itself. Thinking is not the goal of life. Thinking can be the ground for boasting. Thinking, without prayer, without the Holy Spirit, without obedience, without love, will puff up and destroy (1 Cor. 8:1).But thinking under the mighty hand of God, thinking soaked in prayer, thinking carried by the Holy Spirit, thinking tethered to the Bible, thinking in pursuit of more reasons to praise and proclaim the glories of God, thinking in the service of love--such thinking is indispensable in a life of fullest praise to God." - Author: John Piper

Quotes About Sun Shades

"The great hall was shimmering in light, sun streaming from the open windows, and ablaze with colour, the walls decorated with embroidered hangings in rich shades of gold and crimson. New rushes had been strewn about, fragrant with lavender, sweet woodruff, and balm... the air was... perfumed with honeysuckle and violet, their seductive scents luring in from the gardens butterflies as blue as the summer sky." - Author: Sharon Kay Penman

Quotes About Clarity In Relationships

"If every mother in the United States could wrap her mind around her true value as a woman and mother, her life would never be the same. We would wake up every morning excited for the day rather feeling as though wed been hit by a truck during the night. We would talk differently to our kids, fret less about our husbands annoying habits, and speak with greater tenderness and clarity. We would find more contentment in our relationships, let means remarks roll off our backs, and leave work feeling confident in the job we performed. And best of all - we wouldnt obsess about our weight (can you imagine?), physical fitness, or what kind of home we live in. We would live a kinda of home we live in. We would live free from superficial needs because we would know deep in our hearts what we need and more importantly, what we dont need. Each of us would live a life of extraordinary freedom." - Author: Meg Meeker

Quotes About Aristophanes

"In the end, it seems to me that forgiveness may be the only realistic antidote we are offered in love, to combat the inescapable disappointments of intimacy. We humans come into this world—as Aristophanes so beautifully explained—feeling as though we have been sawed in half, desperate to find somebody who will recognize us and repair us. (Or re-pair us.) Desire is the severed umbilicus that is always with us, always bleeding and wanting and longing for flawless union." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Quotes About Empowering Yourself

Quotes About Best Love Ever

"It was the end and he couldnt decide if the truth had been worth telling. All he knew was that it was time to go. Because sometimes doing what was best for someone you loved was more important than taking care of yourself. Because sometimes the things that were never meant to last were what ended up mattering the most. Because sometimes even a door thats always been open has to close." - Author: Megan Hart

Quotes About Honky

"Čím déle zůstávala o samotě, tím neurčitější a méně ohraničená si připadala. Jako tekutina vylitá z nádoby. Viděla sama sebe, jak klouže z lavičky na zem a nabvá podobu zvířete. Po čtyřech doběhla na hranici mokrého asfaltu a přehoupla se do trávy a mokré hlíny. Hnala se dál, nyní ještě rychleji, protože už zjistila, jak ovládat dva páry nohou naráz, hbitě uháněla přes trávník a umělá návršíčka, přes Zahradní zátiší a květinové záhonky do křoví, přes ulici a na železniční vlečku, a doprovázela to vytím." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Awareness Of Surroundings

"In other words, Hitlers soul life was not mature enough at that moment to maintain an awareness of himself and his surroundings when this alien entity entered him. During the following six months during a series of irregular meetings and discussions with Hitler, Walter Stein was to witness a maturing soul development in this enigmatic character through which he became more and more a conscious and responsive tool of the world-shattering purposes of the demonic Spirit which overshadowed him. I move like a sleep-walker where Providence dictates, said Adolf Hitler at a press interview." - Author: Trevor Ravenscroft
