Rita Murphy Quotes

"It is not real," he whispered. "This place is only a thought that has grabbed hold of you. It cannot harm you. You are not of this place, and it has no power over you. You do not need it, nor do you owe it your allegiance." I nodded, listening only to his words and not to the rattling of the windows, which had begun as soon as we stepped inside."

Elizabeth Coatsworth Quotes

"I say that almost everywhere there is beauty enough to fill a persons life if one would only be sensitive to it. but Henry says No: that broken beauty is only a torment, that one must have a whole beauty with man living in relation to it to have a rich civilization and art. . . . Is it because I am a woman that I accept what crumbs I may have, accept the hot-dog stands and amusement parks if I must, if the blue is bright beyond them and the sunset flushes the breasts of sea birds?"

Quotes About Conforto

"Mostraste-me agora o quão cruel tens sido. Cruel e falsa! Por que me desprezaste, Cathy? Por que traíste o teu próprio coração? Não tenho sequer uma palavra de conforto para dar. Tu mereces tudo aquilo por que estás passando. Mataste a ti própria. Sim, podes beijar-me e chorar o quanto quiseres. Arrancar-me beijos e lágrimas. Mas eles vão te queimar e serás amaldiçoada. Se me amavas, por que me deixaste? Com que direito? Responde-me! Por causa da mera inclinação que sentias pelo Linton? Pois não foi a miséria, nem a degradação, nem a morte, nem algo que Deus ou Satanás pudessem enviar, que nos separou. Foste tu, de livre vontade, que o fizeste. Não fui eu que despedacei teu coração, foste tu própria. E, ao despedaçares o teu, despedaçaste o meu também." - Author: Emily Brontë

Quotes About Profound Moments

"After years of falling into the same pattern of disappointments and heartbreak, I finally began to realize something profound. I had always thought that love of dunya meant being attached to material things. And I was not attached to material things. I was attached to people. I was attached to moments. I was attached to emotions. So I thought that the love of dunya just did not apply to me. What I didnt realize was that people, moments, emotions are all a part of dunya. What I didnt realize is that all the pain I had experienced in life was due to one thing, and one thing only: love of dunya." - Author: Yasmin Mogahed
