"True treasure is inside your heart - its a soul that is at peace with God. So live your life for God. Not for your parents or yourself. Streets of gold are for the next life."

Dava Sobel Quotes

"[John] Harrison [could not] express himself clearly in writing.... No matter how brilliantly ideas formed in his mind, or crystallized in his clockworks, his verbal descriptions failed to shine with the same light.... The first sentence [of his last published work] runs on, virtually unpunctuated, for twenty-five pages." Dava Sobel, Longitude, p66"

Dana Fox Quotes

"Audiences know exactly whats coming and they know from the beginning of the movie that everythings going to be OK and there will be high jinks that will get you from the beginning to the end, and eventually all the misunderstandings will be worked out and everyone will be in love."

Anna Staniszewski Quotes

Niki Taylor Quotes

"My goal is to spread the word about the need for more blood donors."

Faith Ford Quotes

"Usually when youre working is when people want you to work. They dont want you as much when youre not working. Thats the frustrating nature of our business."

Michael S Kimmel Quotes

"To be white, or straight, or male, or middle class is to be simultaneously ubiquitious and invisible. Youre everywhere you look, youre the standard against which everyone else is measured. Youre like water, like air. People will tell you they went to see a "woman doctor" or they will say they went to see "the doctor." People will tell you they have a "gay colleague" or theyll tell you about a colleague. A white person will be happy to tell you about a "Black friend," but when that same person simply mentions a "friend," everyone will assume the person is white. Any college course that doesnt have the word "woman" or "gay" or "minority" in its title is a course about men, heterosexuals, and white people. But we call those courses "literature," "history" or "political science."This invisibility is political."

Jolie Du Pre Quotes

"I can smell your blood now. I can smell it in every room of the house."

Abraham Pais Quotes

"Of course, relative citation frequencies are no measure of relative importance. Who has not aspired to write a paper so fundamental that very soon it is known to everyone and cited by no one?"

Kevin Max Quotes

"I dont believe art is meant to be economical. Art is adventurous, sloppy and hugely imaginative. What I look at is hitting the jackpot. I dont even think about the intermediate levels of getting paid. What I want to create is something that revolutionizes ideas and it just so happens that Im not good at it enough yet to become the next William Blake, but Im trying. Im not interested in trying - and it might sound weird to hear a guy say this - to become popular for a certain marketplace. Id rather create something that has its own light and people have to pick it up because they feel its going to wake them up or inspire them to move forward."

Quotes About Measuring Yourself

"Pen realized it: Sometimes there is nothing to do but surrender yourself to wonder... You must stop measuring - over and over - the line between loving and being in love. You must offer yourself, whole, to the cobalt starfish (and the orange one and the pale pink one and the biscuit-colored one with the raised, chocolate-brown art deco design) and to the clear, clear water and to the sweep of shining sky and to the silver scattershot of leaping fish (an entire school skipping across the ocean like a stone.)" - Author: Marisa de los Santos

Quotes About Feeling Haunted

"You are the person that I should have had out there.....right out in front for eveyone to see. To be able to say to the world; Look at who it is that I love! Look how wonderful she is. To be proud of who it is that I am with. That person was you. In my self-absorbed and selfish ways, I didnt celebrate or regard you in the way I should have. I will always have regrets about that and those are the types of thoughts and feelings that have haunted me as I have sat alone in my quiet." - Author: John Britton

Quotes About Destiny And Free Will

"But destiny will be accomplished, and the best man will hold his ground while the undeserving one will vanish into his back-alley for ever - his filthy back-alley, his beloved back-alley, where he is at home and where he will sink in filth and stench at his own free will with enjoyment." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Baccalaureate

"After my baccalaureate, I signed up for acting lessons; there followed some inglorious years, during which I grew nastier and nastier and, as a consequence, more and more caustic; thanks to this, success finally arrived—on a scale that surprised me." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

Quotes About Feels

"Many writing texts caution against asking friends to read your stuff, suggesting youre not apt to get a very unbiased opinion[.] ... Its unfair, according to this view, to put a pal in such a position. What happens if he/she feels he/she has to say, "Im sorry, good buddy, youve written some great yarns in the past but this one sucks like a vacuum cleaner"?The idea has some validity, but I dont think an unbiased opinion is exactly what Im looking for. And I believe that most people smart enough to read a novel are also tactful enough to find a gentler mode of expression than "This sucks." (Although most of us know that "I think this has a few problems" actually means "This sucks," dont we?)" - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Dibs

"I was pure, before you defiled me, and dont you forget it. As though the concept of purity is anything more than the construct of selfish, competitive men stampeding toward the women to call dibs. Ill be damned if Im not worth stampeding toward, but the prize had better be me, hymen or no hymen." - Author: Thomm Quackenbush
