Millard Drexler Quotes

"I was once fired as opening act for Seals and Crofts because I got loaded and introduced them as Arts and Crafts."

Gerald Schroeder Quotes

"Now if there is anything in this universe for which we do not have an "inkling," it is the ultimate goal of the Creator. Erroneous notions regarding this goal often stem from the misconception that all existence exists for man alone. The foible in this perception of the universe is the failure to realize that existence itself is good. The Five Books of Moses are bracketed by explicit statements of the worth of being. At the start we are told: "And God saw all that was made and behold it was very good" (Gen. 1:31)"

Quotes About Soon To Be Mother

"Ive started dreaming in Spanish, which has never happened before. I wake up feeling different, like something inside me is changing, something chemical and irreversible. Theres a magic here working its way through my veins. Theres something about the vegetation, too, that I respond to instinctively - the stunning bougainvillea, the flamboyants and jacarandas, the orchids growing from the trunks of the mysterious ceiba trees. And I love Havana, its noise and decay and painted ladyness. I could happily sit on one of those wrought-iron balconies for days, or keep my grandmother company on her porch, with its ringside view of the sea. Im afraid to lose all this, to lose Abuela Celia again. But sooner or later Id have to return to New York. I know now its where I belong - not instead of here, but more than here. How can I tell my grandmother this?" - Author: Cristina García

Quotes About Bending The Truth

"When you are awake, your mind is limited. When you are dreaming, your mind is unlimited. Creation is a genius. The mind is a powerful aspect to reality, but no one can truly tell you what reality is, or how reality should be. You can only tell yourself. However, what if you can tap into your mental functions, and truly blur the line to the point, that whether you are awake or asleep, your mind makes the world real? Whats the difference between bending the world in your dream, and bending the world in reality? The truth is, there is no difference, when you live in imagination." - Author: Lionel Suggs

Quotes About Leftovers Food

Quotes About Closed Hands

"It was a good death. A very good death. She closed her eyes, and an hour later she gasped twice and let out one long exhale, as if her body were sighing in relief as her soul flew free of its corporeal cage. And it was strange... Nalla woke up at that moment and the young focused not on her granhmen, but above the bed. Her little chubby hands reached high, and she smiled and cooed as if someone had just stroked her cheek.Rehv stared down at the body. His mother had always believed she would be reborn unto the Fade, the roots of her faith planted in the rich soil of her Chosen upbringing. He hoped that was true. He wanted to believe she lived on somewhere.It was the only thing that eased the pain in his chest even slightly." - Author: J.R. Ward

Quotes About Nostalgia And Time

"The danger of restorative nostalgia lies in its belief that the mutilated wholeness of the body politic can be repaired. But the reflective nostalgic understands deep down that loss is irrecoverable: Time wounds all wholes. To exist in Time is to suffer through an endless exile, a successive severing from those precious few moments of feeling at home in the world. In pop terms, Morrissey is the supreme poet of reflective nostalgia." - Author: Simon Reynolds

Quotes About Crime Fiction Genre

"For my money, noir boils down to bleak humanism – or, to put it more plainly: shit options, bad decisions, and direconsequences. The difference between Greek tragedy and noir aint the height of the fall, but the reason: those who fall in Greek tragedy do so because theyre destined to; those who fall in noir choose to their damn selves.In short, free wills a bitch.But regardless of whose definition you go with, youll notice somethings lacking: namely, any mention of genre. Thats because for as much as noirs assumed to be a subset of crime fiction, its more vibe than subgenre. And, as many an enterprising modern writer seems intent on proving, that vibe is one that plays just as well with fantasy and science fiction as it does with crime." - Author: Chris F. Holm

Quotes About Unqualified

"To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour." - Author: Winston Churchill

Quotes About Ocean Views

"An ancient statement declares that "God is no respecter of persons." What this means at the mystical level is that Spirit/The Universe doesnt know or see separate "people" any more than the sun sees separate sunbeams, the ocean recognizes separate waves, or a tree views the branches as separate from each other. All of Life is a unity, expressing fully at every point in the universe. Nowhere is it more or less. Nowhere is it withholding anything. In other words, the only thing blocking your good is your lack of acceptance." - Author: Derek Rydall
