Quotes About Inclusive

"Judaism teaches us the sentence, "The Lord is One," is not exclusive to Adonai, but rather inclusive of everything, everything, everything! Did you get that? Everything is One.

I am talking about more than even the microscopic connection we all share. More than our DNA." - Author: Laura Weakley

Quotes About Opening A Restaurant

"Remember when I was obsessed with that little Lithuanian restaurant downtown? And it was only ever open when the grumpy old woman ran it felt like opening?

Almost never do I get the Chris I got the night of Kileys wedding--open sign, cold cucumber soup, rouladen, poppy seed kolaches." - Author: Rainbow Rowell

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 Malaysian Food

"Her fingers crawled upwards and touched the outer curve of her breast, and the fingers paused, quaking in fear; but after the moment, despite the panic trying to break out of its shadows and seize her mind, she told her fingers, go on. This is my body. I reclaim my body for myself: for my use, for my understanding, for my kindness and care. Go on. And the fingers walked cautiously on, over the curiously muscleless, faintly ridged flesh, cooler than the rest of the body, across the tender nipple, into the deep cleft between, and out onto the breast that lay limp and helpless and hardly recognizable as round, lying like a hunting trophy over her other arm. Mine, she thought. My body. It lives on the breaths I breathe and the food I eat; the blood my heart pumps reaches all of me, into all my hidden crevices, from my scalp to my heels." - Author: Robin McKinley

Quotes About Park Benches

"You spoke to strangers for hours. Afterward you walked the streets in search of other cafes, but they were closed. You stretched out on the park benches of a square near the Gare Saint-Lazare, and you remarked on the shape of the clouds. At six oclock you had breakfast. At seven you took the first train home. When, the next day, your friends repeated to you the words you had spoken to strangers in the cafe, you remembered nothing of them. It was as though someone else inside you had spoken. You recognized neither your words, nor your thoughts, but you liked them better than you would have if you had remembered saying them. Often all it took was for someone else to speak your own words back to you for you to like them." - Author: Édouard Levé
