Quotes About Flying Wings

"A good pilot knows her skills, has confidence in the machine she is flying, and is aware of what actions are required in case of a hurricane, or in case the wings ice over. Therefore she is confident in her ability to cope with whatever weather conditions may arise—not because she will force the plane to obey her will, but because she will be the instrument for matching the properties of the plane to the conditions of the air." - Author: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Quotes About Billboard Advertising

"At the casting sessions it was all boys and though I wasnt exactly bored I didnt need to be there, and songs constantly floating in the car keep commenting on everything neutral encased within the windshields frame ( … one time you were blowing young ruffians … sung over the digital billboard on Sunset advertising the new Pixar movie) and the fear builds into a muted fury and then has no choice but to melt away into a simple and addictive sadness." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Life Quote Garden

"It was only vanity and discouragement that sometimes made me feel alone with my endless love, but now that I was taking one of the risks my heart had urged upon me I could also feel I was not alone. If endless love was a dream, then it was a dream we all shared, even more than we all shared the dream of never dying or of traveling through time, and if anything set me apart it was not my impulses but my stubbornness, my willingness to take the dream past what had been agreed upon as the reasonable limits, to declare that this dream was not a feverish trick of the mind but was an actuality at least as real as that other, thinner, more unhappy illusion we call normal life. After all, the intimations of endless love were the same now as they were thousands of years before, while normal life had changed a thousand times and in a thousand different ways. Which then, was more real?" - Author: Scott Spencer

Quotes About Keeping It Real

"That goes for old wounds, too, you know. I really wish wed had the chance to talk before this," he says, cracking the window so the smoke can escape. "Theres a Longfellow quote I have stuck on my bulletin board at the church office- There is no grief like the grief that does not speak- and its true. Ive found that keeping pain inside doesnt give it a chance to heal, but bringing it out into the light, holding it right there in your hands and trusting that youre strong enough to make it through, not hating the pain, not loving it, just seeing it for what it really is can change how you go on from there. Time alone doesnt heal emotional wounds, Sayre, and you dont want to live the rest of your life bottled up with anger and guilt and bitterness. Thats how people self-destruct." - Author: Laura Wiess
