[Neutrinos, They Are Very Small.They Have No Charge And Have No MassAnd Do Not Interact At All.The Earth Is Just A Silly BallTo Them, Through Which They Simply Pass,Like Dustmaids Down A Drafty HallOr Photons Through A Sheet Of Glass.They Snub The Most Exquisite Gas,Ignore The Most Substantial Wall,Cold Shoulder Steel And Sounding Brass,Insult The Stallion In His Stall,And, Scorning Barriers Of Class,Infiltrate You And Me. Like TallAnd Painless Guillotines They FallDown Through Our Heads Into The Grass.At Night, They Enter At NepalAnd Pierce The Lover And His LassFrom Underneath The Bed—you CallIt Wonderful; I Call It Crass.]

Kelly Rosati Quotes

"If every Christian family in the United States would simply commit to pray and ask God if HE wants to use them to bless a child without a family, well, wed change the world. If we can get the church to think about adoption not in terms of the desires of adults but in terms of the needs of children, I think wed see on a much grander scale how God sets the lonely in families."

Quotes About Thanksgiving To Friends

"On this thanksgiving, I would like to thank that one girl, who never lost hope despite all odds were against her, who always worked, and moved on, despite losing all friends just after leaving school, a time when you need friends the most! Who had immense strength and will-power and so much inspiration inside her that she ended up being happy, satisfied, and successful, all alone. That one girl who always smiles in the mirror, and says, Bitch, you have a long way to go, and you gotta travel all alone, depending upon anyone will make you weak, so buck up, theres a lot you gotta do! On this thanksgiving, I thank myself, my soul for being so majestically robust! I would have thanked other people, but sadly, nobody ever helped me, more than I helped myself..." - Author: Mehek Bassi

Quotes About Betrayal By Friends

"Jesus, who comes across in the Gospels as extraordinarily strong, begged in the garden, with drops of sweat like blood running down his face, that he might be spared the terrible cup ahead of him, the betrayal and abandonment by his friends, death on the cross. Because Jesus cried out in anguish, we may too. But our fear is less frequent and infinitely less if we are close to the Creator. Jesus, having cried out, then let his fear go, and moved on." - Author: Madeleine LEngle

Quotes About Spitting Game

"Cats have a sort of game they play when they meet. A player alternates between watching the strange cat and ignoring her, grooming or examining everything around herself - a dead leaf, a cloud - with complete absorption. It is almost accidental how the two cats approach, a sidelong step and then the sitting again. This often ends in a flurry of spitting and slashing claws, too fast to see clearly, and then one or the other (or both) of the cats leap out of range. The game can have one exchange or many - and is not so different from the first meetings of women." - Author: Kij Johnson

Quotes About Meg March

"-Tudom – mondta csöndesen Tracy –, de mégis meg fogsz változni, akár akarod, akár nem. Semmi nem marad ugyanaz. Semmi, gondolta Millicent.

Quotes About Equal Opportunity In Education

"Equality, citizens, is not the whole of society on a level, a society of tall blades of grass and small oaks, or a number of entangled jealousies. It is, legally speaking, every aptitude having the same opportunity for a career; politically all consciences having the same right. Equality has an organ, gratuitous and compulsory education. We must begin with the right to the alphabet." - Author: Victor Hugo
