JH Trumble Quotes

"Ill never understand why some people cant just let others live their lives, you know," Danial said. "You dont have to understand. You dont have to agree. Just leave people alone. When I look at the moon and planets and stars, all that narrow-mindedness and hate seem so petty. The universe is such a big place. One hundred thousand light years just from one end of the Milky Way to the other. One hundred. Thousand. Light years. In the time its taken for light to travel from one end of our galaxy to the other, thousands of generations have passed. It really makes you realize how small we are, doesnt it? How short our time on earth is."

Quotes About Gottes

"Das Ufer des Flusses und der vielen glitzernden Bächlein, die ihm auf allerlei Umwegen zuströmten, und ebenso alle Flächen, die von den Ufern sich ans Wasser hinuntersenkten, waren von kurzem, dichten, gleichmäßigen Rasen bedeckt, der lieblich duftete. Und weiter noch dehnte sich dieser sanfte grüne Teppich, durchs ganze Tal, vom Fluß bis an den Fuß der Höhen, die es umgürteten. Diese wundervolle weite Grasfläche war über und über mit gelben Butterblumen, weißen Gänseblümchen, blauen Veilchen und rubinroten Asphodelen besprenkelt, und ihre unbeschreibliche Schönheit redete laut zu unsern Herzen von der Liebe und der Herrlichkeit Gottes." - Author: Edgar Allan Poe

Quotes About Democratic Process

"Hed [Cork] learned early not to invest a lot of emotion in thinking about the truth in a crime. As a cop, hed gathered evidfence that had been used to guess at the truth, but in the end responsibility for assembling the pieces and nailing truth to the wall was in the hands of others - lawyers, judges, and juries. Truth became a democratic process, the will of twelve. Hed been burned when he cared too deeply. As a result, hed trained himself to remain a little distant in his emotional involvement on a case. In the end, the outcome was out of his hands, and to allow himself to believe too strongly in the absoluteness of a thing he couldnt control was useless. He felt different now. Desperate in a way. This time he had to hold the truth in his own hands like a beating heart." - Author: William Kent Krueger
