[My Eyes Went Blank, And I Stared Off, And The Music Started. It Was Raining, And The Sun Was Shining At The Same Time, And There Were These Big Bay Windows, And There Was The Blue In The Sky, And The Sun On The Trees, And It Was Drizzling.]

Quotes About Secret Identities

"Valuing names as they do, Realists are sparing with them. They are likely to be known only as Joe or Bill or Plato. And they dont smile much. Nominalists have more fun. They are known as Aristotle or Decimus-et-Ultimus Barziza, or as Edward John Barrington Douglas-Scott-Montague, or perhaps by one name in childhood and several others in the course of life. A firm Realist misses out on one of the most satisfying of all human activities -- the assumption of secret identities. A man who has lived and never been someone else has never lived. It is true that occasionally there can be embarrassment in secret identities, but only a Realist will take the whole thing seriously enough to hit you. So have your fun, and avoid Realists." - Author: Alexei Panshin

Quotes About Reality Checks

"Religion, by its very nature as an untestable belief in undetectable beings and an unknowable afterlife, disables our reality checks. It ends the conversation. It cuts off inquiry: not only factual inquiry, but moral inquiry. Because Gods law trumps human law, people who think theyre obeying God can easily get cut off from their own moral instincts. And these moral contortions dont always lie in the realm of theological game-playing. They can have real-world consequences: from genocide to infanticide, from honor killings to abandoned gay children, from burned witches to battered wives to blown-up buildings." - Author: Greta Christina

Quotes About Schell

"Remember the Duomo," he said. "Bruneschelli just proceeded brick by brick. He never knew what he would do from one day to the next. He worked in faith, and according to the legend he never doubted that the next step to creating the worlds first dome would be given to him in the moment that he needed it. He never saw the end from the beginning. None of us do." - Author: G.G. Vandagriff

Quotes About Beauty In Portuguese

"Kizzy was so busy wishing she was Sarah Ferris or Jenny Glass that she could scarcely see herself at all and she was certainly blind to her own weird beauty: her heavy spell-casting eyes too-wide mouth wild hair and hips that could be wild too if they learned how. No one else in town looked anything like her and if she lived to womanhood she was the one artists would want to draw not the Sarahs and Jennys. She was the one who would some day know a dozen ways to wear a silk scarf how to read the sky for rain and coax feral animals near how to purr throaty love songs in Portuguese and Basque how to lay a vampire to rest how to light a cigar how to light a mans imagination on fire." - Author: Laini Taylor

Quotes About Normalidad

"Tudo em volta induz à loucura, ao infantilismo, à exasperação imaginativa. Contra isso o estudo não basta. Tomem consciência da infecção moral e lutem, lutem, lutem pelo seu equilíbrio, pela sua maturidade, pela sua lucidez. Tenham a normalidade, a sanidade, a centralidade da psique como um ideal. Prometam a vocês mesmos ser personalidades fortes, bem estruturadas, serenas no meio da tempestade, prontas a vencer todos os obstáculos com a ajuda de Deus e de mais ninguém. Prometam SER e não apenas pedir, obter, sentir, desfrutar." - Author: Olavo de Carvalho

Quotes About Gambling On Horses

"Riding in the herd, the sound like one constant, endless sigh; some frantic and others calm, some remembering some wrong done to them while others wanted only to sleep, and each struggling with hunger and thirst; some horses pregnant, others desperate to copulate; and all moved forward as one body amid the heat and the dust." - Author: Amanda Coplin

Quotes About Emotional Abuse

"Since the 1980s, therapists have reported encountering clients or patients who had experienced extreme abuses featuring physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive aspects, along with a premeditated structure of torture-enforced lessons. The phenomena was first labeled "ritual abuse," and, later, as our understanding developed, "mind control." - Author: Alison Miller

Quotes About Beaches And Life

Your candidate won. Your home team won. Youre number one. But life is a tie. We all die." - Author: Jason Daniel Chaplin
