Even in college, were still just a bunch of children sometimes."Whats so... eew!" gasps Maria as she finally gets it. Her face turns red as she covers her mouth with her hands to stifle her giggling."

Howard Kerr Quotes

"But the recurrent ambiguity of the American tale of the supernatural reveals both a fascination with the possibility of numinous experience and a perplexity about whether there was, in fact, anything numinous to be experienced. Writers often delighted in leading readers into, but not out of, the haunted dusk of the borderland."

"Samantha turned on a coy smile and the wily charm of a coquettish girl. A little shiver went through me. The one thing she wasnt was coy or coquettish. More like a cold hearted killer who only smiled at the thought of violence."

Quotes About Wind Blowing In Your Hair

"There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge." - Author: Raymond Chandler

Quotes About Objectivity In Journalism

"It should be apparent that the belief in objectivity in journalism, as in other professions, is not just a claim about what kind of knowledge is reliable. It is also a moral philosophy, a declaration of what kind of thinking one should engage in, in making moral decisions. It is, moreover, a political commitment, for it provides a guide to what groups one should acknowledge as relevant audiences for judging ones own thoughts and acts." - Author: Michael Schudson

Quotes About Fallen Trees

"Bran knew. "Shes a child. A child of the forest." He shivered, as much from wonderment as cold. They had fallen into one of Old Nans tales. "The First Men named us children," the little woman said. "The giants called us wok dak nag gran, the squirrel people, because we were small and quick and fond of trees, but we are no squirrels, no children. Our name in the True Tongue means those who sing the song of the earth. Before your Old Tongue was ever spoken, we had sun our songs ten thousand years." Meera said, "You speak the Common Tongue now." "For him. The Bran boy. I was born in the time of the dragon, and for two hundred years I walked the world of men, to watch and listen and learn. I might be walking still, but my legs were sore and my heart was weary, so I turned my feet for home." "Two hundred years?" said Meera. The child smiled. "Men, they are the children." - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Sacred Body

"The symbol of Goddess gives us permission. She teaches us to embrace the holiness of every natural, ordinary, sensual dying moment. Patriarchy may try to negate body and flee earth with its constant heartbeat of death, but Goddess forces us back to embrace them, to take our human life in our arms and clasp it for the divine life it is - the nice, sanitary, harmonious moment as well as the painful, dark, splintered ones.If such a consciousness truly is set loose in the world, nothing will be the same. It will free us to be in a sacred body, on a sacred planet, in sacred communion with all of it. It will infect the universe with holiness. We will discover the Divine deep within the earth and the cells of our bodies, and we will lover her there with all our hearts and all our souls and all our minds." - Author: Sue Monk Kidd

Quotes About Economic Collapse

"Another myth of necessity is that killing is an economic imperative. While an economic motive has driven many violent ideologies--the economy of the New World was largely buttressed by slavery, and the plundering of gold and other assests as well as the unpaid labor of Nazi victims financed the German war machine--that doesnt mean the economy would collapse were the killing to cease. It is far more likely that the economic status quo would break down; the carnistic-corporate power structure, rather than the citizenry, would suffer were carnism abolished." - Author: Melanie Joy

Quotes About The Home You Grow Up In

"engaged," he said bitterly. "Everybodys engaged. Everybody in a small town is engaged or married or in trouble. Theres nothing else to do in a small town. You go to school. You start walking home with a girl-- maybe for no other reason than that she lives out your way. You grow up. She invites you to parties at her home. You go to other parties-- eople ask you to bring her along; youre expected to take her home. Soon no one else takes her out. Everybody thinks shes your girl and then...well, if you dont take her around, you feel like a heel. And then, because theres nothing else to do, you marry. And it works out all right if shes a decent girl (and most of the time she is) and youre a halfway decent fellow. No great passion but a kind of affectionate contentment. And then children come along and you give them the great love you kind of miss in each other. And the children gain in the long run." - Author: Betty Smith
