Ed Lynskey Quotes

"I cadged a complimentary green matchbook with a gold bird icon from the Bell canning jar. Later wed use the matches to light our spliffs. My fingertips tapped the stem to the gizmo that dinged a bell. Nobody came out. Wrong signal, so I did two bell rings. No response prompted me to tap out a series of bell rings."

Mac MacKenzie Quotes

"I may distance myself from God from time to time, wandering off in the ignorance of my self-absorbed preoccupations and attitudesBut God is never far off. Never distant. Never remote.He is close enough to hear the raw, unbridled "fuck" in my silent prayer of anguish.Close enough to feel the groaning angst and tension in my gut that oft threatens to rend me to pieces. Close enough to hear my heart slam itself in abandon against the walls of this temple of skin in holy desperation; clutching at the veil that dulls and distorts my vision. Close enough to catch me as I stumble in my blind and weary state yet again and again and again.Yes, He is close. She is never far off. God is my faithful friend and traveling companion, though I see Him not yet with these orbs of flesh."

Bellamy Young Quotes

I had a lot going on, as you do when youre 17, and didnt necessarily capitalize on all of it, but it made me see possibility in a way that I hadnt before."

Quotes About Recalling Memories

"We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams; we are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost." - Author: Gaston Bachelard

Quotes About Wanting More Romance

"Stuff designed to make them sound clever and make us part with our money. Which is fine, but their shtick isnt the whole story. Buzzwords are not the word of God. The Internet doesnt work the way it does because some clever person in New York or Shanghai has decided she needs your money. No, its something far more universal and egalitarian. The Internet works best when were all trying to share stuff. Not just the corporations and the Internet millionaires, but you, me, everybody else on this planet." - Author: Hugh MacLeod

Quotes About Being Tattered

"It is a well-worn truth that cops grow callous, a cliché so tattered that it is even common on television. All cops face things every day that are so gruesome, brutal, and bizarre that no normal human being could deal with them on a daily basis and stay sane. And so they learn not to feel, to grow and maintain a poker-faced whimsy toward all the surprising things their fellow humans find to do to each other. All cops practice not-feeling, and it may be that Miami cops are better at it than others, since they have so many opportunities to learn." - Author: Jeff Lindsay
