Kryssie Fortune Quotes

"She stared at the bullwhip coiled Indiana Jones-style at his narrow waist, then at the black-handled dagger sheathed on his right hip. An obsidian rapier--Fae-forged and unbreakable--almost merged with one of the taped seams that ran down the sides of his pants. He even wore a dagger gunslinger-style at his hip. Dear Goddess, the man was a walking arsenal, but he was sexy as hell."

Kit Frazier Quotes

Quotes About Juneteenth

"It is notorious that the news of the Emancipation Proclamation was kept from the people of Texas and not celebrated until Juneteenth. There may be those in Texas now who believe they can insulate their state—a state that had its own courageous revolution—from the news of evolution and from the writing in 1786 of a Constitution that refuses to mention religion except when demarcating and limiting its role in the public square. But we promise them today that they will join their fore-runners in the flat-earth community, and in the mad clerical clique of those who believed that the sun revolved around the earth. Yes, they will be in schoolbooks—as a joke on the epic scale of William Jennings Bryan. We shall be fair, and take care to ensure that their tale is told." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Small Groups In Church

"In a number of workshops, I have asked people whether they have had one or more experiences that they would identify as an experience of God and, if so, to share them in small groups. On average, 80 percent of the participants identify one or more and are eager to talk about them. They also frequently report that they had never before been asked that question in a church setting or given an opportunity to talk about it." - Author: Marcus J. Borg

Quotes About Wendy

"None of them knew. Perhaps it was best not to know. Their ignorance gave them one more glad hour; and as it was to be their last hour on the island, let us rejoice that there were sixty glad minutes in it. They sang and danced in their night-gowns. Such a deliciously creepy song it was, in which they pretended to be frightened at their own shadows, little witting that so soon shadows would close in upon them, from whom they would shrink in real fear. So uproariously gay was the dance, and how they buffeted each other on the bed and out of it! It was a pillow fight rather than a dance, and when it was finished, the pillows insisted on one bout more, like partners who know that they may never meet again. The stories they told, before it was time for Wendys good-night story! Even Slightly tried to tell a story that night, but the beginning was so fearfully dull that it appalled not only the others but himself, and he said happily:" - Author: J.M. Barrie

Quotes About Small Waist

"Tanned, toned, curves in the right places and that small waist…lips, hair, eyes all packaged up like a siren. If shes a siren, I heard her call, and Im diving in hook, line, and sinker. - Drew Donovan" - Author: Kailin Gow

Quotes About Stars And Constellations

"Above, the stars were unwinking, also constant. Suns and worlds by the million. Dizzying constellations, cold fire in every primary hue. As he watched, the sky washed from violet to ebony. A meteor etched a brief, spectacular arc and winked out. The fire threw strange shadows ... not ideograms but a straightforward crisscross vaguely frightening in its own no-nonsense surety. ... The fire burned its steady, slow flame, and phantoms danced in its incandescent core." - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Destruction In The Book Thief

"I had always insisted that a good education was a synthesis of book learning and involvement in social action, that each enriched the other.

Quotes About Thinking Differently

"I remember it so well. Dying. It was the most painful thing Ive ever experienced. I couldnt scream because my lungs were torn apart or full of blood. I dont know. I just had to lie there, trying to breathe, hoping to drop dead as quickly as possible. And the whole time, the whole time I kept thinking about how Id spent my entire life being a coward, and how it got me nowhere. And I knew that if I had the chance to do it all again, Id do it differently. I promised myself Id finally stop being afraid." - Author: Tahereh Mafi
