[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]

Jane Pauley Quotes

"I envy people with dreams and passions, but I dont think that way. I still dont have a bliss to follow.

Amanda Bretz Quotes

"Justus tried to make an objective assessment of Miguel. What was the big deal with him, anyway? So he was easy on the eyes. Actually that was an understatement; he was for female eyes, a virtual feast. He was a perfect physical specimen, and very sensual. He seemed to positively ooze sex and eroticism with his every move, look, and touch. Justus turned her head toward him to steal a glance at his profile, but he caught her looking at him.His eyes were so arresting, they were a dark, fierce green, like beautiful shining emeralds. She also noticed flecks of gold laced through them, reminiscent of cats eyes. Not any ordinary house cat, these were the eyes of a wild predator.He was a panther; with his black hair and green eyes and the way he moved, so gracefully, yet with definite strength and agility. She sighed to herself, so much for her objectivity."

Quotes About Subtlety

"Was it not part of the secret black art of truly grand politics of revenge, of a farseeing, subterranean, slowly advancing, and premeditated revenge, that Israel must itself deny the real instrument of its revenge before all the world as a mortal enemy and nail it to the cross, so that all the world, namely all the opponents of Israel, could unhesitatingly swallow just this bait? And could spiritual subtlety imagine any more dangerous bait than this? Anything to equal the enticing, intoxicating, overwhelming, and undermining power of that symbol of the holy cross, that ghastly paradox of a God on the cross, that mystery of an unimaginable ultimate cruelty and self-crucifixion of God for the salvation of man?" - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Lucretius

"The popular conception of any philosophical doctrine is necessarily imperfect, and very generally unjust. Lucretius is often alluded to as an atheistical writer, who held the silly opinion that the universe was the result of a fortuitous concourse of atoms readers are asked to consider how long letters must be shaken in a bag before a complete annotated edition of Shakespeare could result from the process; and after being reminded how much more complex the universe is than the works of Shakespeare, they are expected to hold Lucretius, with his teachers and his followers, in derision. A nickname which sticks has generally some truth in it, and so has the above view, but it would be unjust to form our judgment of a man from his nickname alone, and we may profitably consider what the real tenets of Lucretius were, especially now that men of science are beginning, after a long pause in the inquiry, once more eagerly to attempt some explanation of the ultimate constitution of matter." - Author: Lucretius
