Lynda K Scott Quotes

"The woman trembled, eyes wide as she stared at the bluff. Her teeth pressed against her lower lip hard enough he wouldnt have been surprised to see blood. Devyn recognized the building hysteria.

Quotes About Pliny

"In Pliny I read about the invention of clay modeling. A Sicyonian potter came to Corinth. There his daughter fell in love with a young man who had to make frequent long journeys away from the city. When he sat with her at home, she used to trace the outline of his shadow that a candles light cast on the wall. Then, in his absence she worked over the profile, deepening, so that she might enjoy his face, and remember. One day the father slapped some potters clay over the gouged plaster; when the clay hardened he removed it, baked it, and "showed it abroad" (63)." - Author: Annie Dillard

Quotes About Sown

"Weźmy twój rozum. Na pozór wydaje się, że myślisz w sposób uporządkowany, logiczny i sensowny. Ale wszyscy wiemy, że w twojej głowie kwitnie istna dżungla nonsensów. Twój umysł to poskręcany, chaotyczny zlepek przypadkowych informacji, które nie kleją się ze sobą z powodu elementarnego braku wiedzy, nie stosowania zasad logiki, niewiarygodnego zaniku zdolności wnioskowania oraz niczym nieuzasadnionego poczucia własnej wyższości. Chaos w płonącym włoskim burdelu podczas bombardowania w czasie II wojny światowej daje mniej więcej obraz tego, co dzieje się zazwyczaj w..." - Author: Martin Lechowicz

Quotes About Diet And Fitness

"All these commercials about health and diet and fitness. All of these ads for waistlines and libidos and teeth whiteners. If youre not taking care of yourself or eating right or exercising, if youre overweight or you have a small penis or you dont have bright enough teeth, then theres something wrong with you. Spiritually. Physically. Morally. Instead of being defined by your actions, youre defined instead by your smile. Your sexual performance. Your percentage of body fat." - Author: S.G. Browne

Quotes About Helplessness

"The irreducible, ultimate element in religious faith is the insistence that we are created things; male and female He created them; without God we are nothing. And yet, when men and women have children and become parents, they unmistakably become creators, incompetent, accidental and partial creators, no doubt, but creators none the less. It is their inescapable duty, and, with luck, their occasional delight to care and watch over their creations; even if this creative power is partly illusory because chromosomes and chance decide the whole business, parents cannot act as if it is illusory; they cannot sincerely believe in their ultimate helplessness. They must behave like shepherds, however clumsy, and not like sheep, however well trained.The Sermon on the Mount is a wonderful, intoxicating sermon. But it is a sermon for bachelors." - Author: Ferdinand Mount

Quotes About Hoes These Days

"I see you go bare-shod. This is most likely extremely sensible. Shoes are no end of trouble for girls. . . . How many have danced to death in slippers of silk and glass and fur and wood? Too many to count—the graveyards, they are so full these days. You are very wise to let your soles become grubby with mud, to let them grow their own slippers of moss and clay and calluses. This is far preferable to shoes which may become wicked at any moment." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente
