[My Dearest Mary,Both My Words And My Conduct At Our Last Meeting Were Ungentlemanly - Born Of Haste And High Emotion, Rather Than Friendship And Good Judgement - And Yet I Cannot Find It Within Me To Apologize. I Am Glad I Kissed You; Glad To Have Revelled In Your Scent, Your Taste, The Touch Of Your Hands; Glad, Even, To Have Quarrelled With You Because During Those Moments Of Anger, I Was In Your Presence.Mary, You Are The Most Singular Woman I Know: Intelligent, Brave And Honest, And I Crave Your Friendship. I Confess To Only The Haziest Notion Of What I Ask, Having Never Been Friends With A Woman Before. My Friendships Are Male And Conventional; Pleasant And Without Distinction. But A Friendship With You Would Be A Bright, New, Rare Thing - If You Would Do Me The Honour.I Expect That What I Ask Is Impossible. But It Is Sweet To Dream, Mary, And Thus I Tender One Last, Insolent, Unapologetic Request: Write To Me Only If You Can Say Yes.Yours,James]

"There is a fear of voluptuousness that is itself voluptuous, just as a certain fear of death can itself be deadly."

"Artists can do whatever they want!"

Stefan Golaszewski Quotes

"You know those nights where the day has unfolded in such a way that now, in the night, you can feel all the gaps in your body and you can see all the reasons youre not who you wish you were - you know those nights where the only sound is of you drinking and the people outside who have each other to drink with - those nights when youre unable to think or be or do because of the paralyzing loneliness - it feels like a hundred of those nights - stitched together and squared - and they come to me in a blush."

Leonard J Arrington Quotes

"The statue of Justice, symbol of the law, as she holds aloft her balance scale, is blindfolded. Justice is blind to race, creed, color – and to personal eccentricity. If there were a comparable state of Clio, the Muse of history, she would have to be presented with the blindfold lying at her feet, because the balance of her scales must be weighed with a conscious awareness of the facts and interpretations she must weigh."

Itxa Bustillo Quotes

"—La gente creerá que somos pareja. —Tímidamente le dije.—Que lo piensen. Cómo nadie nos conoce, entonces no le rendiremos cuentas a nadie.—Algunas jóvenes no dejan de mirarte, no las desilusiones.—Igual, algunos caballeros no te quitan los ojos de encima. —Miraba a su alrededor un tanto serio —Bueno, también se habrán dado cuenta que no soy de aquí.—No, no solo es eso. Es que la belleza de una flor exótica, no puede pasar desapercibida en medio de un campo silvestre. —Murmuró mirándome fijamente a los ojos.Esa frase y su manera de decirlo, la suavidad y la sensualidad en sus palabras me habían idiotizado. Si Loui seguía por ese camino que se había trazado intentando seducirme, en cualquier momento más pronto que tarde lograría que sucumbiera a él. Mis barreras estaban cayendo a sus pies, al igual que mi voluntad y pronto, ante él no sólo desnudaría mi alma sino también mi cuerpo."

Gaiman Neil Quotes

"Adults follow paths. Children explore. Adults are content to walk the same way, hundreds of times, or thousands; perhaps it never occurs to adults to step off the paths, to creep beneath rhododendrons, to find the spaces between fences"

Quotes About Blessed Relationship

"How reprehensible it is when those blessed with commodities insist on ignoring the poor. Better to torment them, force them into indentured servitude, inflict compulsion and blows—this at least produces a connection, fury and a pounding heart, and these too constitute a form of relationship. But to cower in elegant homes behind golden garden gates, fearful lest the breath of warm humankind touch you, unable to indulge in extravagances for fear they might be glimpsed by the embittered oppressed, to oppress and yet lack the courage to show yourself as an oppressor, even to fear the ones you are oppressing, feeling ill at ease in your own wealth and begrudging others their ease, to resort to disagreeable weapons that require neither true audacity nor manly courage, to have money, but only money, without splendor: Thats what things look like in our cities at present" - Author: Robert Walser

Quotes About Thankless

"I mean, full stops are quite important, arent they? Yet by contrast to the versatile apostrophe, they are stolid little chaps, to say the least. In fact one might dare to say that while the full stop is the lumpen male of the punctuation world (do one job at a time; do it well; forget about it instantly), the apostrophe is the frantically multi-tasking female, dotting hither and yon, and succumbing to burn-out from all the thankless effort." - Author: Lynne Truss

Quotes About Acknowledge

"Sir, — Whether women are the equals of men has been endlessly debated; whether they have souls has been a moot point; but can it be too much to ask [for a definitive acknowledgement that at least they are animals?… Many hon. members may object to the proposed Bill enacting that, in statutes respecting the suffrage, wherever words occur which import the masculine gender they shall be held to include women; but could any object to the insertion of a clause in another Act that whenever the word "animal" occur it shall be held to include women? Suffer me, thorough your columns, to appeal to our 650 [parliamentary] representatives, and ask — Is there not one among you then who will introduce such a motion? There would then be at least an equal interdict on wanton barbarity to cat, dog, or woman… Yours respectfully, AN EARNEST ENGLISHWOMAN" - Author: Joanna Bourke
