Quotes About College Costs

Quotes About Feel Free

"Dread of returning to Iraq equals the direst poverty, and thats how he feels right now, poor, like a shabby homeless kid suddenly thrust into the company of millionaires. Mortal fear is the ghetto of the human soul, to be free of it something like the psychic equivalent of inheriting a hundred million dollars.

Quotes About Growth And Success

"I would hesitate to use the word success in the way many people do. I dont know that I would apply it to what Ive done as though I have now reached the ultimate goal.

Success comes as you have confidence in yourself. Self-confidence is built by succeeding, even if the success is small. It is the believing that makes it possible." - Author: Walter Knott

Quotes About Giving Value To Others

"It is clear that something is seriously lacking in the way we humans are going about things. But what is it that we lack? The fundamental problem, I believe, is that at every level we are giving too much attention to the external, material aspects of life while neglecting moral ethics and inner values. By inner values, I mean the qualities that we all appreciate in others, and toward which we all have a natural instinct, bequeathed by our biological nature as animals that survive and thrive only in an environment of concern, affection, and warm-heartedness-or in a single word, compassion. The essence of compassion is a desire to alleviate the suffering of others and to promote their well-being. This is the spiritual principle from which all other positive inner value emerge." - Author: Dalai Lama XIV

Quotes About How Much You Love Your Baby

I wish I could put into words the part of my heart that has your name written on it. That part hurts right now. You have to be here. You love life too much. Youre so important. I wish I could make you understand this." He tried to smile at her valiant efforts. "I would keep you if I could. You can sleep here, right on this couch. Beckett, I will let you hold this baby when it comes." She touched her stomach. "Does that tell you how much you mean to me? Its the only thing I can come up with." He shrugged. "Mouse would be disappointed. Hed feel like he didnt do his job if you died…Eve loves you. Wherever she is—in this strip club—is that what youve been wishing for?" Beckett shook his head. "No, right? She loves you. You cant kill someone she loves. You just cant." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About Lantern Yard

"We love WWII because the cause was so obviously just, because you cant be a good person and say you wouldnt fight against an evil like that. It was so black and white on our side, and on our side so few died. (Our side meaning the lantern-jawed John Wayne Greatest Generation constantly canonized soldiers who strode in late to the graveyard that was Europe. Compared to Jewish, Russian, Roma, and other casualties, our losses were minimal.) We felt so strong. In some ways I think were always trying to recapture that feeling of being a country of superheroes. With every war we invoke that one, we hope it will be that good. -from her blog" - Author: Catherynne M. Valente
