Abigail Padgett Quotes

"The way black women say "girl" can be magical. Frankly, I have no solid beliefs about the survival of consciousness after physical death. But if its going to happen I know what I want to see after my trek toward the light. I want to see a black woman who will smile and say, "Girl...."

Quotes About Simple Solutions

"Television screens saturated with commercials promote the utopian and childish idea that all problems have fast, simple, and technological solutions. You must banish from your mind the naive but commonplace notion that commercials are about products. They are about products in the same sense that the story of Jonah is about the anatomy of whales." - Author: Neil Postman

Quotes About A Typical Day

"A person functioning exclusively in the Cartesian mode may be free from manifest symptoms but cannot be considered mentally healthy. Such individuals typically lead ego-centred, competitive, goal-oriented lives. Overpreoccupied with their past and their future, they tend to have a limited awarenessof the present and thus a limited ability to derive satisfaction from ordinary activities in everyday life. They concentrate on manipulating the external world and measure their living standard by the quantity of material possessions, while they become ever more alienated from their inner world and unable to appreciate the process of life. For people whose existence is dominated by this mode of experience no level of wealth, power, or fame will bring genuine satisfaction" - Author: Fritjof Capra

Quotes About Wise Decisions

"Teenage girls today need strong, positive role models that can show them how to be independent thinkers and confident decision-makers. Dana is proud and self-confident, which is good, but she does not always make wise decisions. Rather than make her a super woman, I balanced her with difficult situations that could have been handled better. Her strength, however, shines through. This way, a young woman can read the book, discuss Danas actions, and reflect on the decision-making in her own life." - Author: Sharon M. Draper

Quotes About Psychic Powers

"Seances occur only in darkened rooms, where the ghostly visitors can be seen dimly at best. If we turn up the lights a little, so we have a chance to see whats going on, the spirits vanish. Theyre shy, were told, and some of us believe it. In twentieth-century parapsychology laboratories, there is the ‘observer effect: those described as gifted psychics find that their powers diminish markedly whenever sceptics arrive, and disappear altogether in the presence of a conjuror as skilled as James Randi. What they need is darkness and gullibility." - Author: Carl Sagan

Quotes About Freeze

"Like a cord between us, it binds me to you, where you go I must then follow. If you go too far, I am compelled to search for you until I find you. If I try to run, I would freeze in my own steps and be made to turn back. I am anything but free. Im your slave. I intend to see this to its finality and end it." He snickered then and let her go.

Quotes About Your Dad Leaving

"Change is the nature of life, Cassidy. Some of its good, like new babies being born and children growing up and leaving home and all the new adventures that both of those things bring. And sometimes change is more difficult - like when your dad died. But its nothing to fear. Good or bad, when we rise up to meet it, change can make us stronger. Its what moved us farther along down the road ahead." - Author: Heather Vogel Frederick

Quotes About Grow Old With You

"Finally, the last point that can kill your spark is Isolation. As you grow older you will realize you are unique. When you are little, all kids want Ice cream and Spiderman. As you grow older to college, you still are a lot like your friends. But ten years later and you realize you are unique. What you want, what you believe in, what makes you feel, may be different from even the people closest to you. This can create conflict as your goals may not match with others. And you may drop some of them. Basketball captains in college invariably stop playing basketball by the time they have their second child. They give up something that meant so much to them. They do it for their family. But in doing that, the spark dies. Never, ever make that compromise. Love yourself first, and then others." - Author: Chetan Bhagat

Quotes About Cheerleading Captains

"Hey, yourself." I beamed at the cheerleading squads captain and then leaned down to whisper to La La. "Whats her name again?""Jackie." La La slung her jean satchel on her right shoulder and exhaled noisily. "I cant wait until you get out of your Shapeshifter horny phase.""The proper name is Season." I drank in Jackies image as she jumped around, doing a cheer. Those round melons bounced with each movement. "And it usually takes Shifters seven to ten years to mature out of it, so buckle up and enjoy the ride."La La snorted." - Author: Kenya Wright
