Quotes About Looking At Someone

"Time had ceased to feel linear. She looked up through the crisscrossing branches, thick with buds, into the night sky. The stars tugged at her gaze, trying to pull her up among them, or she was pulling them down to her. She was on the verge of some great discovery, she realized, but she had no idea what it was, what it related to, whether it even had anything to do with her at all. Was she a participant, or an observer? Did the world center around her, or could it carry on quite easily without her input? Looking up at those stars, feeling the embrace of their light as it enfolded her, she felt both small and large, as though everything mattered and nothing did. When someone crouched down beside her it took years for her to turn her head to see who it was. All she could make out was a dark shape, a vague outline of head and shoulders silhouetted against the stars, the rest of the body lost in the shadows of the rose bushes." - Author: Charles de Lint

Quotes About Bisphenol

"Your lifestyle may expose you to environmental estrogens that can disrupt your bodys natural balance or interfere with proper therapy. Here are some tips from Dr. LaValle to reduce your exposure: 1. Limit drinking out of plastic containers, and when you do, drink only from containers that are free of bisphenol A, better known as BPA. 2. Do not microwave food in plastic containers or covered in plastic. 3. Avoid using personal care items such as face creams, cosmetics, shampoos, tampons, and toiletries that contain environmental estrogens and particularly phthalates. Phthalates are synthetic substances found in many plastics. They have estrogenic properties and are banned as a toxic substance in Europe." - Author: Daniel G. Amen

Quotes About Jad

"No había dejado de desearla un solo instante. La encontraba en los oscuros dormitorios de los pueblos vencidos, sobre todo en los más abyectos, y la materializaba en el tufo de la sangre seca en las vendas de los heridos, en el pavor instantáneo del peligro de muerte, a toda hora y en todas partes. Había huido de ella tratando de aniquilar su recuerdo no sólo con la distancia, sino con un encarnizamiento aturdido que sus compañeros de armas calificaban de temeridad, pero mientras más revolcaba su imagen en el muladar de la guerra, más la guerra se parecía a Amaranta. Así padeció el exilio, buscando la manera de matarla con su propia muerte..." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Sud

"The theatre is a tragic place, full of endings and partings and heartbreak. You dedicate yourself passionately to something, to a project, to people, to a family, you think of nothing else for weeks and months, then suddenly its over, its perpetual destruction, perpetual divorce, perpetual adieu. Its like éternel retour, its a koan. Its like falling in love and being smashed over and over again.You do, then fall in love.Only with fictions, I love players, but actors are so ephemeral. And then theres waiting for the perfect part, and being offered it the day after youve committed yourself to something utterly rotten. The remorse, and the envy and the jealousy. An old actor told me if I wanted to stay in the trade I had better kill off envy and jealousy at the start." - Author: Iris Murdoch

Quotes About Caged

"Matter is lazy. It resists change. It wants to keep on doing whatever its doing, whether thats sitting still or moving. We call that laziness inertia, but that doesnt mean we understand it. For a thousand years weve labelled it, quantified it, caged it in equations, but weve still only scratched the surface of what it really is." - Author: Alastair Reynolds
