Quotes About Assurance In A Relationship

"How sweet is the assurance, how comforting is the peace that come from the knowledge that if we marry right and live right, our relationship will continue, notwithstanding the certainty of death and the passage of time. Men may write love songs and sing them. They may yearn and hope and dream. But all of this will be only a romantic longing unless there is an exercise of authority that transcends the powers of time and death." - Author: Gordon B. Hinckley

Quotes About Prospers

"Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Self Descriptions

"he shewed himself so intimately acquainted with all the tenderest songs of the one poet, and all the impassioned descriptions of hopeless agony of the other; he repeated, with such tremulous feeling, the various lines which imaged a broken heart, or a mind destroyed by wretchedness, and looked so entirely as if he meant to be understood, that she ventured to hope he did not always read only poetry; and to say, that she thought it was the misfortune of poetry, to be seldom safely enjoyed by those who enjoyed it completely; and that the strong feelings which alone could estimate it truly, were the very feelings which ought to taste it but sparingly...she ventured to recommend a larger allowance of prose in his daily study." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Age Difference

"It is generally recognized that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multitasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics. It is not politically correct to say such things....But it cannot be denied that there are differences between men and women. Of course, these are differences between the averages only. There are wide variations about the mean." - Author: Stephen Hawking

Quotes About Beating Fear

"She had never paid much attention to the heart beating in her own chest. As she watched the pattern traced by Korsaks, she became aware of her own pulse. She had always taken her heartbeat for granted, and she wondered what it would be like, to hang on every beat, fearful that the next might not come. That the throb of life in her chest would suddenly go still." - Author: Tess Gerritsen

Quotes About Allende

"Die Schönheiten dieser neuen Gegenden setzten mich über die Maßen in Erstaunen. Prachtvolle Gestaltungen, Lagen und Stellungen der Eisblöcke. Hier sahen sie aus wie eine orientalische Stadt mit zahllosen Minaretts und Moscheen; dort wie eine durch Erdbeben zerfallene Stadt. Ansichten, die in den schief fallenden Sonnenstrahlen unaufhörlich wechselten oder inmitten der Schneestürme sich in graue Nebel verloren. Dann allerwärts polterndes Zusammenstürzen hinpurzelnder Eisberge mit wechselnden Dekorationen wie in einem Diorama." - Author: Jules Verne

Quotes About Friends Become Strangers

"…food is capable of feeding far more than a rumbling stomach. Food is life; our well-being demands it. Food is art and magic; it evokes emotion and colors memory, and in skilled hands, meals become greater than the sum of their ingredients. Food is self-evident; plucked right from the ground or vine or sea, its power to delight is immediate. Food is discovery; finding an untried spice or cuisine is for me like uncovering a new element. Food is evolution; how we interpret it remains ever fluid. Food is humanitarian: sharing it bridges cultures, making friends of strangers pleasantly surprised to learn how much common ground they ultimately share." - Author: Anthony Beal
