Mike Mason Quotes

"so the best marriages and the deepest relationships with God grow out of the startling discovery that there is nothing one can do to earn love, and even more startling, that there is also nothing one can do to unlearn it, or to keep oneself from being loved. This is a religious awakening that is utterly different from any other religious experience, no matter how profoundly spiritual it may seem."

Bruce Glover Quotes

"Sometimes the best thing you could do is a real bad film... you could improvise all over the place and probably only improve the script."

John Van Dyke Quotes

"To speak of sparing anything because it is beautiful is to waste ones breath and incur ridicule in the bargain. The aesthetic sense- the power to enjoy through the eye, and the ear, and the imagination- is just as important a factor in the scheme of human happiness as the corporeal sense of eating and drinking; but there has never been a time when the world would admit it."

Mar Mai Quotes

"Ah, I do so love this charmingly rustic, elvin kingdom!-Baozhai"

Tom Franklin Quotes

"Well, sugar," she said, limping off, "dont be too hard on yourself. Now and again its okay to let yourself off the hook."But that was the trouble, wasnt it? Letting himself off the hook had been his way of life."

Hector Berlioz Quotes

"Fresh proof of the risks you run in writing about players, and of the advisability of not standing to leeward of their self-esteem when one has had the misfortune to wound it in the slightest degree. When you criticize a singer, you do not have his colleagues up in arms against you. Indeed, they generally feel that you have not been severe enough. But the virtuoso instrumentalist who belongs to a well-known musical organization always claims that in criticizing him you are insulting the whole institution, and though the contention is absurd he sometimes succeeds in making the other players believe it."

Jeremy Piven Quotes

"I relished the opportunity to be on Broadway... Its the holy grail for people like me."

Lena Olin Quotes

"Everyone is complicated one way or another. But its interesting to dig into a complicated character, to try to find that within yourself."

Adolf Guggenbhuhl Craig Quotes

"As soon as we confront concrete marriages with other foreign images-such as well-being, happiness, a home for children-marriage appears to be senseless, withered, moribund, and kept alive largely by a great apparatus of psychologists and marriage counselors. Marriage is dead. Long live marriage!"

Quotes About Rabbit Hunting

"When she came back minutes later with a great, fat, skinned rabbit, Po had built a fire. The flames cast orange light on the horses and on himself. "It was the least I could do," Po said, drily, "and I see youve already skinned the hare. Im beginning to think I wont have much responsibility as we travel through the forest together.""Does it other you? Youre welcome to do the hunting yourself. Perhaps I can stay by the fire and mend your socks, and scream if I hear strange noises." - Author: Kristin Cashore

Quotes About Odd Numbers

Quotes About Jenni Rivera

"I vowed that I would never tell anyone of my shame. They say that when you kept a secret, it eats you up inside, but I felt it was better that way. I wanted to appear strong in front of my children and my family. I didnt want anybody to know. And I would maintain my persona as Jenni, the Rivera Rebel who had never lost a fight. But deep down inside I knew I had lost a piece of myself that I would never recover. My soul had been shattered, but to the outside world I did just as I had been taught since I was a little girl; I kept my head up and continued forward. It is, after all, the Rivera way." - Author: Jenni Rivera

Quotes About Breeding Dogs

"So a dogs value came from the training AND the breeding. And by breeding, Edgar supposed he meant both the bloodlines - the particular dogs in their ancestry - and all the information in the file cabinets. Because the files, with their photographs, measurements, notes, charts, cross-references, and scores, told the STORY of the dog - what a MEANT as his father put it. (180)" - Author: David Wroblewski

Quotes About Not Returning Love

"And me, I got what I wanted.I died with my life around me."Isnt that what any of us would ask for, to be fully in our lives as we leave them, to have been ourselves all the way first? This is the gift that Phils love is giving to Bill. I know what the price of this is for Phil- the exhaustion, the continuous focus on another, the postponement of ones own needs, but he cant see himself the depth and magnitude of the gift; he is so far inside it he has no means to measure. What Im seeing is the kindest and sweetest mirror of the last of my life with Wally, and so rather than returning me to difficulty and pain, the visit is somehow restorative, bracingly genuine, consoling. Where could it be clearer, here in the heart of abandonment, what love achieves?" - Author: Mark Doty

Quotes About Booth And Rowntree

"Theyll be days like this" my momma said.When you open your hands to catch, and wind up with only blisters and bruises.When you try to step out of the phone booth and try to fly , and the very people you want to save, are the ones standing on your cape.When your boots will fill with rain, and youll be up to your knees with disappointmentAnd those are the very days you have all the more reason to say "Thank you"." - Author: Sarah Kay

Quotes About Anwar Sadat

"Im Verlaufe nicht nur der ökonomischen, sondern auch der politischen Globalisierung kann das kardinale völkerrechtliche Prinzip der Nichteinmischung in Gefahr geraten. Besonders gilt dies für dasVerhältnis des Westens zur islamischen Kultur. Vornehmlich von meinem toten muslimischen Freunde Anwar as-Sadat habe ich den Respekt gegenüber anderen Religionen gelernt. Ich habe von ihm gelernt die gleichen Wurzeln von Judentum und Christentum und Islam. Und inzwischen habe ich ausserdem gelernt, dass Konfuzius, Sokrates oder Lao Tse und ebenso Zarathustra und Gautama Buddha ein halbes Jahrtausend, Moses oder Echnaton ein ganzes Jahrtausend vor Jesus von Nazareth gelebt haben - und dass sie wahrscheinlich deswegen doch nicht unglücklicher gewesen sind als wir Heutigen. Unter den globalisierten Umständen der heutigen Menschheit geziemt jedermann Respekt und Toleranz gegenüber den Kulturen der anderen." - Author: Helmut Schmidt

Quotes About Taking Work Seriously
