Lloyd Biggle Jr Quotes

"Beauty he loved for its own sake; ugliness, which more often than not was a form of inverted beauty, fascinated him. Life offered far too little of either, and far too much appalling mediocrity, which he thought hideous."

Li Bai Quotes

"Green mountains rise to the north;white water rolls past the eastern city.Once it has been uprooted,the tumbleweed travels forever.Drifting clouds like a wanderers mind;sunset, like the heart of your old friend.We turn, pause, look back and wave,Even our ponies look back and whine."

Lauren Gilley Quotes

"I know." Her smile twitched, wry. "Its taken me a while to figure out that love turns some men into shitheads every so often." Her green eyes were too knowing. "Ben cares. Ben is freaking the hell out that a dead body turned up at you and Claras doorstep. That spells – " "Dont say ‘love." Jess almost smiled. "Its Bens shriveled, mutant, parasitic brand of love. But its still love."

Gian Carlo Rota Quotes

"The apex of mathematical achievement occurs when two or more fields which were thought to be entirely unrelated turn out to be closely intertwined. Mathematicians have never decided whether they should feel excited or upset by such events."

Louis MacNeice Quotes

"September has come, it is hersWhose vitality leaps in the autumn,Whose nature prefersTrees without leaves and a fire in the fireplace.So I give her this month and the nextThough the whole of my year should be hers who has rendered alreadySo many of its days intolerable or perplexedBut so many more so happy.Who has left a scent on my life, and left my wallsDancing over and over with her shadowWhose hair is twined in all my waterfallsAnd all of London littered with remembered kisses."

Rahm Emanuel Quotes

"There was no blueprint or how-to manual for fixing a global financial meltdown, an auto crisis, two wars and a great recession, all at the same time."

Quotes About Grandpa Death

"Some team! The Chief was doing so many jobs alone. Id fix on the Chiefs raw, rope-burned palms or all the gray hairs collected in his sink, and Id suffer this terrible side pain that Kiwi said was probably an ulcer and Ossie diagnosed as lovesickness. Or rather a nausea produced by the "black fruit" of love—a terror that sprouted out of your love for someone like rotting oranges on a tree branch. Osceola knew all about this black fruit, she said, because shed grown it for our mother, our father, Grandpa Sawtooth, even me and Kiwi. Loving a ghost was different, she explained—that kind of love was a bare branch. I pictured this branch curving inside my sister: something leafless and complete, elephantine, like a white tusk. No rot, she was saying, no fruit. You couldnt lose a ghost to death." - Author: Karen Russell

Quotes About Chrysler Building

"Anyone can buy a car or a night on the town. Most of us shell our days like peanuts. One in a thousand can look at the world with amazement. I dont mean gawking at the Chrysler Building. Im talking about the wing of a dragonfly. The tale of the shoeshine. Walking through an unsullied hour with an unsullied heart" - Author: Amor Towles

Quotes About Binding Love

"At the root of the tree at the heart of the world,With a chain round his neck, the Wolf lies curled. His gleaming teeth and jaws are furled,And the sun shall rise in the morning. His chain, it is forged of the nerve of a bear,Of the voice of a fish, and a girls chin-hair. His chain, it is light and strong and fair,And the sun shall rise in the morning. With a mountains root, and a cats foot-fall,And the spit of a bird, he is held in thrall, Though iron could bind him never at all, And the sun shall rise in the morning. The sun shall rise, the stars shall fade,For the binding which the good gods madeStill loops the Wolf in its lovely braid, And the sun shall rise in the morning." - Author: Maculategiraffe

Quotes About Financial Breakthrough

"I never will forget this. I went and threw myself across my daughters bed, and I cried and I cried and I cried and I cried, because I felt like that I had been so faithful and that there was no financial breakthrough for us. You ever have one of those days where you are tired of hearing everybody elses testimony? But, I made a decision that day, and I think we all have to come to this point in many different areas of our life. And, as I lay across that bed and cried, when I finally got done crying I said this out loud, it was like my declaration, "God, I am going to tithe and give offerings until the day I die whether I ever see anything from it or not!" And, you know what, from that day forward we began to prosper and increase. And, I believe with all of my heart that was a test for me." - Author: Joyce Meyer

Quotes About Becoming Young Parents

"By the time the sixties hit their home bases, we the kids, were already born, and our parents found themselves stuck between an entrenched belief that children needed to be raised in a traditional household, and a new sense that anything was possible, that the alternative lifestyle was out there for the asking. There they were in marriages they once thought were a necessity and with children theyd had almost by accident in a world that was suddenly saying, No necessities! No accidents! Drop Everything! A little too old to take full advantage of the cultural revolution, our parents just got all the fallout. Freedom hit them obliquely, and invidiously, rather than head-on. Instead of waiting longer to get married, our parents got divorced; Instead of becoming feminists, our mothers were left to become displaced homemakers. A lot of unhappy situations were dissolved by people who were not quite young or free enough to start again." - Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
