Mark McGuinness Quotes

"Coveys solution is to prioritise work that is important but not urgent (the blue square in thediagram). Though this is hard to do on any given day, it is the only way to ensure you are makingprogress towards your own goals and dreams, instead of merely reacting to what other peoplethrow at you. And over time, the more you are dealing with important things before they becomeurgent, the fewer ‘urgent and important tasks you will have to deal with.The most obvious way to do this is to work on your own projects first every day, even if its onlyfor half an hour. Whatever interruptions come along later, you will at least have the satisfaction ofhaving made some progress towards your own goals."

Michael Wood Quotes

"Home is what we know we ought to want but cant really take. America is not so much a home for anyone as a universal dream of home, a wish whose attraction depends upon its remaining at the level of a wish. The movies bring the boys back but stop as soon as they get them back; for home, that vaunted, all-American ideal, is a sort of death, and an oblique justification for all the wandering that kept you away from it for so long."

Susan Waterfield Quotes

Tracy Brogan Quotes

"We cant control events in our life, Sadie. Sometimes we cant even control our reactions. But the harder we fight against the waves, the more exhausted we become. Control is an illusion, you know."

Kurt Vonnegut Quotes

"In the year Ten Million, according to Koradubian, there would be a tremendous house-cleaning. All records relating to the period between the death of Christ and the year One Million A.D. would be hauled to the dumps and burned. This would be done, said Koradubian, because museums and archives would be crowding the living right off the Earth. The million-year period to which the burned junk related would be summed up in history books in one sentence, according to Koradubian: Following the death of Jesus Christ, there was a period of readjustment that lasted for approximately one million years."

Quotes About Narrow Escape

"A fight like this was stunning, revealing not just how much he was on the lookout for enemies, but how she too was unable to abandon argument which escalated into rage. Neither of them would back off, they held bitterly to principles.Cant you tolerate people being different, why is this so important?If this isnt important, nothing is.The air seemed to grow thick with loathing. All over a matter that could never be resolved. They went to bed speechless, parted speechless the next morning, and during the day were overtaken by fear - hers that he would never come home, his that when he did she would not be there. Their luck held, however. They came together in the late afternoon pale with contrition, shaking with love, like people who had narrowly escaped an earthquake and had been walking around in naked desolation." - Author: Alice Munro

Quotes About Weave

"I felt my way up the cliffs to the south until I found a patch of machair a few yards long and a few wide, where I pitched my tent and settled to sleep. The stars stood sharp above. It felt odd to be on rock again, not sea, to think of the ground on which I lay extending down to the floor of the Minch. Lying there, I could still feel the day at sea, blood and water slopping about in my bag of skin, the tidal churn of my liquid body, a roll and sway in the skull. My mind beat back north against the current, thinking of the puffins flight, the lines we leave behind us, the spacious weave, our wake, then sleep." - Author: Robert Macfarlane

Quotes About Demonstration

"Sorweel: „Then how can we hope to resist him?"Harweel: „With our swords and our shields. And when those fail us, with spit and curses."But the spit and the curses, Sorweel would learn, always came first, accompanied by bold gestures and grand demonstrations. War was an extension of argument, and swords were simply words honed to a blood-letting edge. Only the Sranc began with blood. For Men, it was always the conclusion." - Author: R. Scott Bakker

To struggle and fight for the ones you love today. And then do it all over again the next day. Every day. For your whole life. Its not as romantic, I admit. But it takes a lot of courage to live for someone, too." - Author: Victor LaValle
