[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]

"في المرَّةِ الأولى عندما متنالَمْ نَجِد سريراً يُلائم أجسادنا المُكتظَّة بأشياءٍ جميلةوبقينا بلا نومٍ لأيامٍ نُخفِّف حمولة داخلنا من رداءةِ ما عَلِق...طائرات ورقية رسمناها في صيف 2008بوسترات أفلام رخيصة كانت نتيجة خوفنا من أن نفشل في الإنجابقمصان زاهية نرتديها حينما تقهرنا الرغبة، نرتديها بدافع الضحكوالملل والعادة؛رسائل بريدية تحمل أُغنية، أخبار قديمة، قصائد نُمرِّرها عبر أيقونةسريعة، محادثة مرئية تُعيد لنا ملامحنا القديمةحزن بنفسجيّ كأخرِ وردة بينناذبحة صدريّة انغمست في أصابعنا فتوقّفنا عن الكتابة ؛المرّة الأولى كانت كافيةً جداً لإعادةِ الاختياروأنْ ننام ونوافذنا مفتوحة ليجِد الحبَّ مُتَّسعاً."

Pete Wilson Quotes

"I was right then, Im right now. I think time has proven me right."

Robbert Dijkgraaf Quotes

"I received comments on how extraordinary it was that I could keep up speaking for exactly 45 minutes. Indeed, in an age of soundbites lasting some seconds and of quick quotes in the news, all those minutes do seem like an eternity, easy to get lost in. Yet, wait a moment. Television is not the only place where speeches are given. Some hundred thousand teachers teach every day. They all speak 45 minutes, more times a day. They have been doing this for years. Every teacher knows exactly when the time will be over and that by then his speech will need to come to a natural end. It is this tension that determines the success of a lesson. It is a sign of the times that we forget these daily achievements in education. A million students daily attend several ‘live lectures and this in secondary education alone. These are high ratings!"

Sandra Byrd Quotes

"I felt free this time, knowing I had a job and that I wasnt going to be graded. I could simply experiment and create. The thought occurred to me that if I always lived under the certainty of Gods provision instead of the certainty of Lexis worry, I might always feel this free."

"The feel of arms around me, in comfort rather than as restraint or in harmful intent, undoes me.

Quotes About Benefits Of Dance

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
