Joseph ONeill Quotes

"It used to be the case that for an Irishman to come to the U.S. involved a perilous journey on a ship. It involved singing lots of songs before you left saying goodbye, and once you were in the U.S., it involved singing lots of songs about how you were never going to set foot in Ireland again."

"my unexpected trip to the light may have been cancelled, but here I was, still paying the cost of the return ticket"

"Rationality will not save us."

Shauna Cross Quotes

"And I know Im sarcastic and defensive and I make a joke out of everything and am highly resistant to anything that reeks of sentimental corniness, but Im giving you my heart anyway because being with you feels like home, and I know you wont break it."

Louise Lawrence Quotes

"Homo sapiens! The name itself was an irony. They had not been wise at all, but incredibly stupid. Lords of the Earth with their great gray brains, their thinking minds had placed them above all other forms of life. Yet it had not been thought that compelled them to act, but emotion. From the dawn of their evolution they had killed, and conquered, and subdued. They had committed atrocities on others of their kind, ravaged the land, polluted and destroyed, left millions to starve in Third World countries, and finished it all with a nuclear holocaust. The mutants were right. Intelligent creatures did not commit genocide, or murder the environment on which they were dependent."

Adelia Prado Quotes

"Amor violetaO amor me fere é debaixo do braço,de um vão entre as costelas.Atinge meu coração é por esta via inclinada.Eu ponho o amor no pilão com cinzae grão de roxo e soco. Macero ele,faço dele cataplasmae ponho sobre a ferida."

Jean Sibelius Quotes

"Music is, for me, like a beautiful mosaic which God has put together. He takes all the pieces in his hand, throws them into the world, and we have to recreate the picture from the pieces."

NT Wright Quotes

"Unless a person can give reasons, there is, literally, no reason why anyone else should take that person seriously. But without reasons, all we are left with is emotional blackmail. We sometimes call it moral blackmail, but it has nothing to do with morals, only with the implied juvenile threat of having a tantrum unless everyone else gives in."

Johann Baptist Metz Quotes

"No mi kršćani upućeni smo po središtu našega Creda - mučen pod Poncijem Pilatom - u povijest u kojoj je bilo razapinjanja i mučenja, u kojoj se plakalo i tako rijetko ljubilo. I nikakav od povijesti udaljeni mit, nikakav Platonovi idejni Bog, nikakva gnostička soteriologija i nikakav apstraktni govor o povijesnosti naše egzistencije ne mogu nam vratiti onu nedužnost koju smo u toj povijesti izgubili."

Murray Kempton Quotes

"No great scoundrel is ever uninteresting."

Quotes About Smell Of Perfume

"He (Michael) was gone in a whisper of air, hardly making any sound at all, and Claire shivered and leaned against Shanes solid, very human warmth. His arms went around her, and he touchedhis lips lightly to the back of her neck. "How can you smell this good after the kind of crappy day weve had?""I sweat perfume. Like all girls." - Author: Rachel Caine

Quotes About Freud Sexuality

"Freud expressed the opinion—not quite in earnest, though, it seemed to me—that philosophy was the most decent form of sublimation of repressed sexuality, nothing more. In response I put the question, What then is science, particularly psychoanalytic psychology? Whereupon he, visible a bit surprised, answered evasively: At least psychology has a social purpose." - Author: Freud

Quotes About Short Castles

"I recall those beautiful summer mornings with my parents by the sandy beach of Belek. My father used to teach me how to ride waves. I remember him constantly emphasizing the fact that no wave, no matter how big it is should stir enough fear inside me to keep me glued to the shore. He used to repeat those words while glancing at my mother with a smile that could set the whole sea on fire. My mother, sitting on the beach, too afraid of the deep blue sea, contented herself with building sand castles, ones my father would step on trying to drag her hopelessly into water. Step on your sand castle and dive deep. Dive deep into the unknown. Life is damn too short for building sand castles." - Author: Malak El Halabi

Quotes About Effortlessness

"Amazing how the most obvious things escape your notice. Maybe the truth is exactly the things you dont notice. Maybe the aim to see and tell the truth is inherently futile, a contradiction in terms, and its exactly those things about oneself and the world that are invisible because they are woven into ones fabric that are the truth. Just like a person cant see his own eyes. You search and search and search, and the truth, by definition, is exactly that which you dont find. You dont see the truth, you are the truth. "Habits of attention are reflexes of the complete character of an individual." And how could you notice your own habits of attention? By writing. Well, at their most profound level? It doesnt make any difference. That is the point. Its like Zen. The truth is not straining for the truth, the truth is in effortlessness. The truth is in being, not trying. Aw hell, that doesnt leave much too chew on." - Author: Richard Hell

Quotes About Empty Beds

"My daughter is seven, and some of the other second-grade parents complain that their children dont read for pleasure. When I visit their homes, the childrens rooms are crammed with expensive books, but the parents rooms are empty. Those children do not see their parents reading, as I did every day of my childhood. By contrast, when I walk into an apartment with books on the shelves, books on the bedside tables, books on the floor, and books on the toilet tank, then I know what I would see if I opened the door that says PRIVATE--GROWNUPS KEEP OUT: a child sprawled on the bed, reading." - Author: Anne Fadiman

Quotes About Us Navy Seals

"We know about bad guys, what they do, and often, who they are. The politicians have chosen to send us into battle, and thats our trade. We do whats necessary. And in my view, once those politicians have elected to send us out to do what 99.9 percent of the country would be terrified to undertake, they should get the hell out of the way and stay there.This entire business of modern war crimes, as identified by the liberal wings of politics and the media, began in Iraq and has been running downhill ever since. Everyones got to have his little hands in it, blathering on about the publics right to know.Well, the view of most Navy SEALs, the public does not have that right to know, not if it means placing our lives in unnecessary peril because someone in Washington is driving himself mad worrying about the human rights of some cold-hearted terrorist fanatic who would kill us as soon as look at us, as well as any other American at whom he could point that wonky old AK of his." - Author: Marcus Luttrell

Quotes About Early Summer

"The man said that a portion of track just up into the mountain pass had been damaged by a rockslide early that morning, and they had shut down the whole system for maybe as long as the rest of the summer. The man shook his head, incredulous, disgusted, but also delighted in the way that people are often delighted by bad news, or the opportunity to discuss bad news that does not immediately affect them." - Author: Amanda Coplin

Quotes About Building A Future

"The most exemplary nature is that of the topsoil. It is very Christ-like in its passivity and beneficence, and in the penetrating energy that issues out of its peaceableness. It increases by experience, by the passage of seasons over it, growth rising out of it and returning to it, not by ambition or aggressiveness. It is enriched by all things that die and enter into it. It keeps the past, not as history or as memory, but as richness, new possibility. Its fertility is always building up out of death into promise. Death is the bridge or the tunnel by which its past enters its future." - Author: Wendell Berry
