Derek Landy Quotes

"She turned to Skulduggery and held out her arms. "Come here, you." He tilted his head. "My hugs are for special occasions only." "Hug me." "I prefer the old tradition." "Hug.""Would a handshake do?" "Hug.""A pat on the back?" She stepped forward and wrapped her arms round him. "Hug," she said. He sighed, and his hands settled on her shoulders. The others were warm and their embraces strong – with Skulduggery the hug was cold, and there were areas on his jacket that gave way beneath her fingers, and she could feel the emptiness within. She didnt mind."

Kate Orman Quotes

"…before he left home, he broke his name. Broke it into thirty-eight tiny pieces… He swept up all the pieces of who he was and tucked them away in an inside pocket. And over the years, as he met people who ended up sharing the road with him, travelling with him for a while, he would quietly give each of them a piece of his name… with all the jigsaw pieces of his name scattered about, they wouldnt be able to get all of him when they came to take him away."

Laura Linney Quotes

"For me to have the opportunity to stay with one character for, God willing, a long period of time, is really exciting."

Jenna Maclaine Quotes

"There is darkness inside all of us, though mine is more dangerous than most. Still, we all have it—that part of our soul that is irreparably damaged by the very trials and tribulations of life. We are what we are because of it, or perhaps in spite of it. Some useit as a shield to hide behind, others as an excuse to do unconscionable things. But, truly, the darkness is simply a piece of the whole, neither good nor evil unless you make it so. Ittook a witch, a war, and a voodoo queen to teach me that."

Emma Willard Quotes

"His daughter returned from her boarding school, improved in fashionable airs and expert in manufacturing fashionable toys; but, in her conversation, he sought in vain for that refined and fertile mind which he had fondly expected."

Angelo M Swinson Quotes

Quotes About Englisch

"Am Schluß eines damals verfaßten, auch ins Englische übersetzten Lebensabrisses hatte ich im halb spielerischen Glauben an gewisse Symmetrien und Zahlenentsprechungen in meinem Leben die ziemlich bestimmte Vermutung geäußert, daß ich im Jahre 1945, siebzigjährig, im selben Alter also wie meine Mutter, das Zeitliche segnen würde. Das ins Auge gefaßte Jahr, sagte der Mann, sei so gut wie abgelaufen, ohne daß ich Wort gehalten hätte.

Quotes About Dub

"But its precisely in this cold, loathsome half-despair, half-belief, in this deliberate burying of yourself underground for forty years out of sheer pain, in this assiduously constructed, and yet somewhat dubious hopelessness, in all this poision of unfulfilled desires turned inward, this fever of vacillations, of resolutions adopted for eternity, and of repentances a moment later that you find the very essence of that strange, sharp pleasure." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Not Giving Up

"My life will be what I make it," he told her. "That is true for all of us all the time. We cannot know what the future will bring or how the events of the future will make us feel. We cannot even plan and feel any certainty that our most carefully contrived plans will be put into effect. Could I have predicted what happened to me in the Peninsula? Could you have predicted what happened to you in Cornwall? But those things happened to us nevertheless. And they changed our plans and our dreams so radically that we both might have been excused for giving up, for never planning or dreaming again, for never living again. That too is a choice we all have to make." - Author: Mary Balogh

Quotes About Richard Parker

"The meerkats looked away. They did it like one man, all of them turning in the same direction at exactly the same time. I pulled myself out to see what it was. It was Richard Parker. He confirmed what I had suspected, that these meerkats had gone for so many generations without predators that any notion of flight distance, of flight, of plain fear, had been genetically weeded out of them. He was moving through them, blazing a trail of murder and mayhem, devouring one meerkat after another, blood dripping from his mouth, and they, cheek to jowl with a tiger, were jumping up and down on the spot, as if crying, "My turn! My turn! My turn!" - Author: Yann Martel

Quotes About Mithril

"have tokens that I was bidden to show to thee - to thee in especial, if thou shouldst dare to come. He signed to one of his guards, and he came forward bearing a bundle swathed in black cloths.The Messanger put these aside, and there to the wonder and dismay of all the Captains he held up first the short sword that Sam had carried, and next a grey cloak with an elven-brooch, and last the coat of mithril-mail that Frodo had worn wrapped in his tattered garments. A blackness came before their eyes, and it seemed to them in a moment of silence that the world stood still, but their hearts were dead and their last hope gone." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Medico

"Quanti anni ha, Trentotto, Bene, allora andiamo ad esaminare questi occhi. Il cieco li spalancò, come per facilitare lesame, ma il medico lo prese per un braccio e lo fece sedere dietro un apparecchio che con un po di immaginazione si sarebbe potuto vedere come un nuovo modello di confessionale, dove gli occhi avessero preso il posto delle parole, con il confessore che scruta discretamente nellanima del peccatore" - Author: José Saramago
