Benjamin Ford Crouch Quotes

"A part of you feels lost and not at home, while another part just wants to be home. Inside you feel its better to be lost then to be home where you think you belong. Theres a battle inside of you, but you dont know which side to fight on. Is it better to be lost or is it better to be home? When youre lost, you have freedom from yourself. When your lost youre not yourself, you dont know what to do or who you are anymore. When youre home, you feel safe, but "home is a battlefield. Back home theyre all tying to ‘get you. Get you to open up, be somebody youre not sure you are anymore. Or I could be wrong." Maybe its better to be lost then to be home, but sometimes you just got to come home for awhile! Sometimes home is where you should be even when you want to be lost."

Quotes About Alf Cats

"Contentment has learned how to find out what she needs to know. Last year she went on a major housecleaning spree. First she stood on her head until all the extra facts fell out. Then she discarded about half her house. Now she knows where every thing comes from—who dyed the yarn dark green and who wove the rug and who built the loom, who made the willow chair, who planted the apricot trees. She made the turquoise mugs herself with clay she found in the hills beyond her house. When Contentment is sad, she takes a mud bath or goes to the mountains until her lungs are clear. When she walks through an unfamiliar neighborhood, she always makes friends with the local cats." - Author: J. Ruth Gendler

He loved with single heart and refused to cheapen himself or his love." - Author: Jack London

She jerked and stared and barely knew where she was, dream pieces floating like iceberg shards across her half-waking mind." - Author: Frances Hardinge
