Megan Abbott Quotes

"Running so hard, her breath stippled with pain to go faster, hit the grass harder, move forward faster, like she could break through something in front of her, something no one else saw."

Kevin James Moore Quotes

"Her honey-blonde hair is strewn across her face as she sways her head. Shes working a red sequined bikini separated by a tan, flat stomach, and a butterfly tattoo resting on her left hip. Her legs are clad in black fishnets that run into a pair of white-heeled boots—still a knockout."

Sheldon S Wolin Quotes

"democracy is about the conditions that make it possible for ordinary people to better their lives by becoming political beings and by making power responsive to their hopes and needs. What is at stake in democratic politics is whether ordinary men and women can recognize that their concerns are best protected and cultivated under a regime whose actions are governed by principles of commonality, equality, and fairness, a regime in which taking part in politics becomes a way of staking out and sharing in a common life and its forms of self-fulfillment. Democracy is not about bowling together but about managing together those powers that immediately and significantly affect the lives and circumstances of others and ones self."

Rebecca De Mornay Quotes

"I may be an optimist."

Robert Adams Quotes

"You cant talk about life without talking about politics. You have to have both. If youre just a political person, youre going to burn out. If you, as an artist, are just focused inward, youre going to eventually be irrelevant."

Joseph C Morecraft III Quotes

"Tyranny flourishes in those societies that reject the Reformed Faith. Tyranny is squelched and liberty flourishes in those societies that embrace the Reformed Faith in all its fullness."

"The media cause more problems than they do good."

Giorgio De Chirico Quotes

"Although the dream is a very strange phenomenon and an inexplicable mystery, far more inexplicable is the mystery and aspect our minds confer on certain objects and aspects of life."

Paula S Rothenberg Quotes

"Can people of color be racist?" I reply, "The answer depends on your definition of racism." If one defines racism as racial prejudice, the answer is yes. People of color can and do have racial prejudices. However, if one defines racism as a system of advantage based on race, the answer is no. People of color are not racist because they do not systematically benefit from racism. And equally important, there is no systematic cultural and institutional support or sanction for the racial bigotry of people of color. In my view, reserving the term racist only for behaviors committed by whites in the context of a white-dominated society is a way of acknowledging the ever-present power differential afforded whites by the culture and institutions that make up the system of advantage and continue to reinforce notions of white superiority. (Using the same logic, I reserve the word sexist for men. Though women can and do have gender-based prejudices, only men systematically benefit from sexism.)"

Charles Shaughnessy Quotes

"Soaps are great. You learn to work very fast - some say superficially, but thats not really true. You do some very serious character work. Ive never had any feelings about a stigma attached to it, and nowadays there seems to be less snobbery about what you do. More and more big names are doing TV and commercials and voiceovers."

Quotes About Done With Love

"And maybe love is terrifying. Im terrified now, but not in the way she would think.Im terrified because I hate who she is and what shes done, I do, and yet there is still something strong and powerful between us, some kind of deep, primal bond that wont end, wont snap or break or change, it just remains there inside me, as sold and factual as my blood and bones - she is my mother, I am her daughter - and I dont know what to call it because it doesnt feel like love, not the good kind I felt for Ellie, with all my heart, but instead an instinctual pull thats been there from the beginning, drawing me back to her again and again, the woman who has hurt me like no one else ever could, and now shes dying and the bond is still here, inside me, and I wont call it love or hate because emotions has nothing to do with the fact that she is my mother and I am her daughter, and we will be connected in that way forever." - Author: Laura Wiess

Quotes About He Will Always Be Mine

"He pulled back, but only enough to lock his eyes onto mine as he held my face in his hands. "It will always be you, Cassandra," he whispered against my lips. Then he kissed me again, much softer this time, as if gently transferring every ounce of love he had for me onto my lips. I didnt need any words, this was all I ever needed to know that he loved me.Everything around me faded. All my worries, all my fears disappeared when he touched me. We werent stuck in this Hell, we werent even in its realm. We were in our own world, no one around to save, or to slay. God, if only we could stay here. I didnt want to face reality, not when I had him here with me now, not after thinking Id lost him." - Author: L.J. Kentowski

Quotes About Beer Homer Simpson

"Stale beer sticks to wobbling tables. The cigarette machine flashes in the corner, mocking smokers who never have any change on them. Theres no natural light in this pub, so its dark and gloomy. The pain on the face of the staff tells its own story: overworked, underpaid, exploited and treated as expendable. I feel at home with them. Theyre so scared they will be fired from their terrible jobs, every time I order a beer they ask me if I want any peanuts or crisps, in case between drinks Ive turned into the dreaded mystery shopper. The air is chewy and weighs heavy on the skin. The fruit machines in the corners dont make a sound, aware this is the last stop saloon for the drunk few who cant afford to gamble properly. Everyone here is down to their last pint and pound." - Author: Craig Stone

Quotes About Confused Mind

"When you ride in a boat and watch the shore, you might assume that the shore is moving. But when you keep your eyes closely on the boat, you can see that the boat moves. Similarly, if you examine many things with a confused mind, you might suppose that your mind and nature are permanent. But when you practice intimately and return to where you are, it will be clear that there is nothing that has unchanging self." - Author: Dōgen
