LaToya Hankins Quotes

"The hair on the back of Kiaras neck stood up. Did they know about Chris? Since becoming a couple last year, the two worked hard at keeping their relationship under wraps. She wasnt ashamed, just cautious. Copper Road University was a Southern school and certain types of relationships were frowned upon. She kept her love life under wraps out of a love of privacy. She also didnt want it to interfere with becoming a Kappa. While on the national level the organization prided itself on its diverse membership, on the local level everyone may not be so accepting."

Katie Robinson Quotes

"Fear holds us back from living the lives we want. Use your 20s to make bold decisions, follow different paths, learn from heartbreak, and figure out who you are. When youre 30, do you want to look back at the same boring job, the stale relationship that isnt working, and no stamps in your passport? If you want something different, if you want a life that is filled with experiences, if you want to learn and grow, if you want to make a difference…conquer the fears, believe in yourself, and just do it. You may be questioning something right now. You may be battling thoughts in your mind about taking a leap. Ask yourself what you have to lose if you leap. Ask yourself what kind of stories you want to have. Ask yourself if youre worth it, if you deserve it."

Jeanann Verlee Quotes

"Every morning I sit at the kitchen table over a tall glass of water swallowing pills. (So my hands wont shake.) (So my heart wont race.) (So my face wont thaw.) (So my blood wont mold.) (So the voices wont scream.) (So I dont reach for knives.) (So I keep out of the oven.) (So I eat every morsel.) (So the wine goes bitter.) (So I remember the laundry.) (So I remember to call.) (So I remember the name of each pill.) (So I remember the name of each sickness.) (So I keep my hands inside my hands.) (So the city wont rattle.) (So I dont weep on the bus.) (So I dont wander the guardrail.) (So the flashbacks go quiet.) (So the insomnia sleeps.) (So I dont jump at car horns.) (So I dont jump at cat-calls.) (So I dont jump a bridge.) (So I dont twitch.) (So I dont riot.) (So I dont slit a strange mans throat.)"

Jeffrey A White Quotes

"As the sun casts silver knives across the blue sky,tall pines throw cold shadows across my side of the street,and a late December chill pierces my body. I bury my hands into my pocketsand walk faster to beat off the bitterness, but I cant seem to keep my hands warm. I stop, cup my hands against my mouthand exhale. Vapor rises and hoversover my head like words we never say anymore. When you decided to forego a third round of a walking darkness,we sat together. Remember — we held hands. Your hands were cold, but I could always warm them up for you. When the nurse woke meto tell me that your time was near,we were together.Remember — I held your hand,but as much as I tried, I couldnt warm it up. (sigh)I pull down my hat,tighten the collar of my jacket,and start walking to the other side of the street,where strangers are standing sentry against sunlit wallsto ward off the cold."

It was no wonder shed reacted by pulling me closer, frcibly narrowing my world back to fit insider her own. Even now, as I finally saw this as the truth it was, a part of me wishing my mother would stand up straight, take command, be back in control.

All you need to be mighty in your generation is a shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit (the Word of God, Eph. 6:16–17). Through Christ you can absolutely, unequivocally do anything God places before you (Phil. 4:13)." - Author: Beth Moore
