[My Days I Devote To Reading And Experiments In Chemistry, And I Spend Many Of The Clear Nights In The Study Of Astronomy. There Is, Though I Do Not Know How There Is Or Why There Is, A Sense Of Infinite Peace And Protection In The Glittering Hosts Of Heaven. There It Must Be, I Think, In The Vast And Eternal Laws Of Matter, And Not In The Daily Cares And Sins And Troubles Of Men, That Whatever Is More Than Animal Within Us Must Find Its Solace And Its Hope.]

Michael Offutt Quotes

"Vibrations caused by powerful turbines stirred Kathy from a dream centered around a funeral. Her eyes flicked open, face dry, and she had no idea where she was. In her dream, she saw crystalline silver spiders again, weaving their way through the graveyard, leaving trails of silver webs over corpses, binding them for some unknown purpose in the cold dark earth."

Jill Bialosky Quotes

"As I listen to the stories about those who suffered and ended their lives it seems to me that it isnt as if they wanted to die, but more that they wished to feel better and didnt know how."

George Seferis Quotes

"My vantage point must have been somewhere between our little house and the steamer jetty. The sea was exceptionally calm. Lit up by a sun that you could have taken down and put in your knapsack. Everything: Mooring rings on the harbor wall, piles of timber, the arches of the houses, caiques, windows – all of them were faithful, in the way we describe a dog being faithful."

Alexander Schmemann Quotes

"Whether we "spiritualize" our life or "secularize" our religion, whether we invite men to a spiritual banquet or simply join them at the secular one, the real life of the world, for which we are told God gave his only begotten Son, remains hopelessly beyond our religious grasp."

Quotes About Flowers In Summer

"Now the day is done,Now the shepherd sunDrives his white flocks from the sky;Now the flowers restOn their mothers breast,Hushed by her low lullaby.Now the glowworms glance,Now the fireflies dance,Under fern-boughs green and high;And the western breezeTo the forest treesChants a tuneful lullaby.Now mid shadows deepFalls blessed sleep,Like dew from the summer sky;And the whole earth dreams,In the moons soft beams,While night breathes a lullaby.Now, birdlings, rest,In your wind-rocked nest,Unscared by the owls shrill cry;For with folded wingsLittle Brier swings,And singeth your lullaby." - Author: Louisa May Alcott

Quotes About Dogs As Companions

"By standard intelligence texts, the dogs have failed at the puzzle. I believe, by contrast that they have succeeded magnificently. They have applied a novel tool to the task. We are that tool. Dogs have learned this--and they see us as fine general-purpose tools, too: useful for protection, acquiring food, providing companionship. We solve the puzzles of closed doors and empty water dishes. In the folk psychology of dogs, we humans are brilliant enough to extract hopelessly tangled leashes from around trees; we can conjure up an endless bounty of foodstuffs and things to chew. How savvy we are in dogs eyes! Its a clever strategy to turn to us after all. The question of the cognitive abilities of dogs is thereby transformed; dogs are terrific at using humans to solve problems, but not as good at solving problems when were not around." - Author: Alexandra Horowitz

Quotes About Comfortable Life

"Squeezed against each other in the heavy heat, they were silent...looking toward the home that was expecting them--quiet, perspiring, resigned to this existence divided among a soulless job, long trips coming and going in an uncomfortable trolley, and at the end an abrupt sleep. On some evenings it would sadden Jacques to look at them. Until then he had only known the riches and the joys of poverty. But now heat and boredom and fatigue were showing him their curse, the curse of work so stupid you could weep and so interminably monotonous that it made the days too long and, at the same time, life too short." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Trois

"Après le décès de cette vieille dame, tous les dimanches, jallais au bord dun étang à lotus en banlieu de Hanoi, où il y avait toujours deux ou trois femmes au dos arqué, aux mains tremblantes, qui, assises dans le fond dune barque ronde, se déplaçaient sur leau à laide dune perche pour placer des feuilles de thé à lintérieur des fleurs de lotus ouvertes. Elles y retournaient le jour suivant pour les recueillir, unes à unes, avant que les pétales se fanent, après que les feuilles emprisonnées avaient absorbé le parfum des pistils pendant la nuit. Elles me disaient que chaque feuille de thé conservait ainsi lâme de ces fleurs éphémères." - Author: Kim Thúy
