[Maybe If We Both Wish Hard Enough, I Will Become Invisible, With Watery Veins And Glass Bones. My Translucent Heart Will Beat On But My Father Will Not Notice Me. He Sees Only My Mother In The Spaces Around Him.]

Quotes About Deprecatory

"Matthew had sheepishly unfolded the dress from its paper swathings and held it out with a deprecatory glance at Marilla, who feigned to be contemptuously filling the teapot, but nevertheless watched the scene out of the corner of her eye with a rather interested air.Anne took the dress and looked at it in reverent silence. Oh, how pretty it was--a lovely soft brown gloria with all the gloss of silk; a skirt with dainty frills and shirrings; a waist elaborately pintucked in the most fashinable way, with a little ruffle of filmy lace at the neck. But the sleeves--they were the crowning glory! Long elbow cuffs, and above them two beautiful puffs divided by rows of shirring and bows of brown-silk ribbon." - Author: L.M. Montgomery

Quotes About Power And Authority

"There is one aspect of the change in moral values brought about by the advance of collectivism which at the present time provides special food for thought. It is that the virtues which are held less and less in esteem and which consequently become rarer and precisely those on which the British people justly prided themselves and in which they were generally agreed to excel. The virtues possessed by Anglo-Saxons in a higher degree than most other people, excepting only a few of the smaller nations, like the Swiss and the Dutch, were independence and self-reliance, individual initiative and local responsbility, the successful reliance on voluntary activity, noninterference with ones neighbor and tolerance of the different and queer, respect for custom and tradition, and a healthy suspicion of power and authority." - Author: Friedrich Hayek

Quotes About Baring It All

"I added pieces the same way Id constructed my body, from the inside out: boy-cut panties first (lacy), bra (sheer), stockings (thigh high), knee-length leather skirt (black), lime green midriff-baring shirt (polyester). David leaned against the wall and watched this striptease-in-reverse with fabulously expressive eyebrows slowly climbing toward heaven, I finished it off with a pair of strappy lime green three-inch heels, something from the Manolo Blahnik spring collection that Id seen two months ago in Vogue.He looked me over, blinked behind the glasses, and asked, "Youre done?"I took offense, "Yeah. You with the fashion police?""I dont think Id pass the entrance exam." The eyebrows didnt come down. "I never knew you were so…""Fashionable?""Not really the word I was thinking."I struck a pose and looked at him from under my supernaturally lustrous eyelashes. "Come on, you know its sexy.""And thats sort of my point." - Author: Rachel Caine

Quotes About Dreams Failing

"Sunday morning came – next day the battalions would leave for the front; the church was filled; the volunteers were there, their young faces alight with martial dreams – visions of the stern advance, the gathering momentum, the rushing charge, the flashing sabers, the flight of the foe, the tumult, the enveloping smoke, the fierce pursuit, the surrender! Then home from the war, bronzed heroes, welcomed, adored, submerged in golden seas of glory! With the volunteers sat their dear ones, proud, happy, and envied by the neighbors and friends who had no sons and brothers to send forth to the field of honor, there to win for the flag, or, failing, die the noblest of noble deaths. The service proceeded; a war chapter from the Old Testament was read; the first prayer was said; it was followed by an organ burst that shook the building, and with one impulse the house rose, with glowing eyes and beating hearts, and poured out that tremendous invocation" - Author: Mark Twain
