Jerome Flynn Quotes

John D MacDonald Quotes

"Old friend, there are people—young and old—that I like, and people that I do not like. The former are always in short supply. I am turned off by humorless fanaticism, whether its revolutionary mumbo-jumbo by a young one, or loud lessons from scripture by and old one. We are all comical, touching, slapstick animals, walking on our hind legs, trying to make it a noble journey from womb to tomb, and the people who cant see it all that way bore hell out of me."

"Quel che abbiamo letto di più bello lo dobbiamo quasi sempre a una persona cara. Ed è a una persona cara che subito ne parleremo. Forse proprio perché la peculiarità del sentimento, come del desiderio di leggere, è il fatto di preferire. Amare vuol dire, in ultima analisi, far dono delle nostre preferenze a coloro che preferiamo. E queste preferenze condivise popolano linvisibile cittadella della nostra libertà. Noi siamo abitati da libri e da amici." - Author: Daniel Pennac

Quotes About Death Quran

"Death was sweetened for the martyrs by the promise of 72 virgins waiting in paradise. She had researched the 72 virgins. The number wasnt actually in the Quran but in the Hadith 2687, collected in the Book of Sunan. The Quran, in Sura 56, was vague on the point. And theirs shall be the dark-eyed houris, chaste as hidden pearls … A new analysis translated houris from the Aramaic dialect Syriac as "white raisins", which put everything in a very different light." - Author: Leslie Cockburn

Quotes About Zinc

"She had dispersed. She was the garden at Prem Nivas (soon to be entered into the annual Flower Show), she was Veenas love of music, Prans asthma, Maans generosity, the survival of some refugees four years ago, the neem leaves that would preserve quilts stored in the great zinc trunks of Prem Nivas, the moulting feather of some pond-heron, a small unrung brass bell, the memory of decency in an indecent time, the temperament of Bhaskars great-grandchildren. Indeed, for all the Minsisster of Revenues impatience with her, she was his regret.And it was right that she should continue to be so, for he should have treated her better while she lived, the poor, ignorant, grieving fool." - Author: Vikram Seth

Quotes About Leaving Your Wife

"We certainly dont wish to be the cause of any trouble in your home." Lucy smiled in response to the delicate insinuation."Please dont worry. You havent caused any trouble at all.""Theres not a word of truth in that," Raine said with a mellifluous laugh. "Unexpected companys always trouble.But Ill be leaving for England soon,and then youll have your home and your husband all to yourself again."Lucys spine stiffened at the implication that Raine had somehow undermined her position as Heaths wife. "Youre welcome in my home. And dont mind any of the time that my husband wishes to spend with either of his sisters." Lucy emphasized the last word lightly. After giving Raine a few seconds to digest that, she continued in a casual tone. "How exciting the prospect of living in England must be." - Author: Lisa Kleypas

Liz rolled her eyes and trudged off, calling back as she vanished from view, "I want the results of pregnancy tests from both of you by the time I get out of the shower!" - Author: Hayden Thorne
