Quotes About Funny Witchcraft

"You see, the future is a kind of stew, a soup, a vichyssoise of the present and the past. Thats how you get the future: You mix up everything you did today with everything you did yesterday and all the days before and everything everyone you ever met did and anyone they ever met, too. And salt and lizard and pearl and umbrellas and typewriters and a lot of other things Im not at liberty to tell you, because I took vows, and a witchs vows have teeth. Magic is funny like that. Its not a linear thinker. The point is if you mash it all up together and you have a big enough pot and youre very good at witchcraft, you can wind up with a cauldron full of tomorrow." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente

Quotes About Gratitude Pinterest

"But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they notpresent themselves every hour to our eyes? Do we not see a fair creationprepared to receive us the instant we are born —a world furnished toour hands, that cost us nothing? Is it we that light up the sun; that pourdown the rain; and fill the earth with abundance? Whether we sleep orwake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on.

Or isthe gloomy pride of man become so intolerable, that nothing can flatter itbut a sacrifice of the Creator?" - Author: Thomas Paine

Quotes About Monitoring

"A few days later, Tuesday quietly crossed our apartment as I read a book and, after a nudge against my arm, put his head on my lap. As always, I immediately checked my mental state, trying to assess what was wrong. I knew a change in my biorhythms had brought Tuesday over, because he was always monitoring me, but I couldnt figure out what it was. Breathing? Okay. Pulse? Normal. Was I glazed or distracted? Was I lost in Iraq? Was a dark period descending? I didnt think so, but I knew something must be wrong, and I was starting to worry...until I looked into Tuesdays eyes. They were staring at me softly from under those big eyebrows, and there was nothing in them but love." - Author: Luis Carlos Montalván

Quotes About Past Memories

"For all the pain you suffered, my mama. For all the torment of your past and future years, my mama. For all the anguish this picture of pain will cause you. For the unspeakable mystery that brings good fathers and sons into the world and lets a mother watch them tear at each others throats. For the Master of the Universe, whose suffering world I do not comprehend. For dreams of horror, for nights of waiting, for memories of death, for the love I have for you, for all the things I remember, and for all the things I should remember but have forgotten, for all these I created this painting—an observant Jew working on a crucifixion because there was no aesthetic mold in his own religious tradition into which he could pour a painting of ultimate anguish and torment." - Author: Chaim Potok
