"The purpose of poetry is to remind ushow difficult it is to remain just one person,for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors, and invisible guests come in and out at will."

Mark Kendrick Quotes

"Its funny how we think life works a certain way because of TV and movies. Most people dont really think about how scripts are edited and how people get to practice their lines and rehearse. If one doesnt get it right they get to redo the scene until they do. In real life whats missing or not working only comes up when were going along full blast. We end up being the editors of our lives only while were running in real time."

Quotes About Veil

"As Blake leaned down to accept her hug she whispered, "Remember when you and Livia tried to hog the spotlight at my wedding? Just when you and Livia get to the good part, Cole and I are going to have porno sex right there."She and John took one small step at a time. She was obviously much more concerned about tripping than Kyle had been. During her descent, Blake just looked. Her white gown fit her frame perfectly, and the strapless dress revealed the gentle, tempting curves of her shoulders. Her bouquet contained the paper-napkin roses hed made for her, combined with babys breath. A flowing train cascaded down the stairs behind Livia, and an even longer veil billowed in the gentle breeze like a blown wish." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About 17th Birthday

"Im an old man, now. Ive been alone since my 17th birthday. Id wanted to marry, have a bunch of kids, and maybe be a grandpa. The big family around the Thanksgiving table, laughing and pouring wine and cracking jokes and harmlessly teasing the missus—I wanted that. I wanted to do something good with my life—something right. I didnt want what happened to Danny, my best childhood friend, to be the only mark Id ever make in this world. But I thought it best not to fancy such hopes and dreams: a family, love. Id been cursed by my best friend, and I thought it right not to inflict that curse on anyone whod be foolish enough to love me." - Author: J. Tonzelli

Quotes About Team Outing

"[T]his readiness to assume the guilt for the threats to our environment is deceptively reassuring: We like to be guilty since, if we are guilty, it all depends on us. We pull the strings of the catastrophe, so we can also save ourselves simply by changing our lives. What is really hard for us (at least in the West) to accept is that we are reduced to the role of a passive observer who sits and watches what our fate will be. To avoid this impotence, we engage in frantic, obsessive activities. We recycle old paper, we buy organic food, we install long-lasting light bulbs—whatever—just so we can be sure that we are doing something. We make our individual contribution like the soccer fan who supports his team in front of a TV screen at home, shouting and jumping from his seat, in the belief that this will somehow influence the games outcome." - Author: Slavoj Žižek

Quotes About The Goodness Of The Lord

"JANUARY 19 Expect the Blessings of God Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. PSALM 27:14 Sometimes you may feel discouraged, miserable, and depressed. In those times you need to take a close look at whats been going on in your mind. Isaiah 26:3 tells you when you keep your mind on the Lord you will have "perfect and constant peace." By focusing on the goodness of God and waiting, hoping, and expecting Him to encourage you and fill you with His peace and joy, you can overcome negative thoughts that drag you down. Think and speak positively. Begin believing right now that you are about to see Gods goodness in your life. Wait, hope, and expect His blessings to be abundant in your life." - Author: Joyce Meyer

Quotes About Being Positive And Moving On

"I am learning everyday to see the silver lining on every dark cloud. To see the life lesson in every situation; to feel joy and peace in every circumstance; to hear and speak only positive, uplifting, kind and caring words; to touch hearts in a positive and meaningful way; to be inspired by others and to be inspirational for others. To truly make a significant difference in my life and the lives of others by becoming my best self and being the best I can be in service to them. I still have a long way to go, but I feel life becoming more enriched as I keep climbing upwards and moving forward in my quest to create a more Loving, Peaceful, Joyous and Beautiful world." - Author: Sean D.

Quotes About Second Coming Of Jesus

"I want us all to have real clarity about the principles of the gospel that unite us. I want us to understand to the marrow of our bones that Jesus is the Christ, that his atonement releases us from the bondage of sin and error, that the covenants we make are eternally honored by our Heavenly Father, and that the ordinances of the gospel exist to perfect us as individuals, to purify us as a community, and to prepare us as a people for the second coming of our Lord. I want those principles to lead us the way the pillar of fire by night led the children of Israel in the wilderness. I want them to dominate our mental landscapes as the pillar of the cloud towered over them by day. I want singleness of vision when it comes to principles." - Author: Chieko N. Okazaki
