Anirudh Arun Quotes

"Its only now that I realize that voicing out your alternative goals isnt really a sound idea. Dont get me wrong here - Im not saying one mustnt dream for oneself. Im just saying that one mustnt give it voice, at least until it has been acted upon. If they dont know your dreams, then they cant shoot them down."

Juan Rulfo Quotes

"There youll find the place I love most in the world. The place where I grew thin from dreaming. My village, rising from the plain. Shaded with trees and leaves like a piggy bank filled with memories. Youll see why a person would want to live there forever. Dawn, morning, mid-day, night: all the same, except for the changes in the air. The air changes the color of things there. And life whirs by as quiet as a murmur...the pure murmuring of life."

Quotes About Tender Kisses

"He puts up with a lot from me, and he never gets irritated.""Yeah, cause you can be so darn irritating..."

He paused, his mouth a mere breath away from mine, and he kissed me softly. "And those irritating, luscious lips..." The green of his eyes darkened as he gazed down at my mouth. "God, those lips..." he sighed, and his warm breath drifted lightly across my mouth as his arms tightened around me more. He kissed me long and hard." - Author: Tess Oliver

Quotes About Heist

"I was barked at by numerous dogs who are earning their food guarding ignorance and superstition for the benefit of those who profit from it. Then there are the fanatical atheists whose intolerance is of the same kind as the intolerance of the religious fanatics and comes from the same source. They are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who—in their grudge against the traditional "opium of the people"—cannot bear the music of the spheres. The Wonder of nature does not become smaller because one cannot measure it by the standards of human moral and human aims." - Author: Albert Einstein

Quotes About Plasticity

Quotes About Niece Love

"I tell my seven-year-old son about his remarkable forefathers. I leave out the bloody details. (For him these people are like knights, which sounds better than hangmen or executioners.) In his bedroom hangs a collage made up of photos of long-dead family members--great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, their aunts, their uncles, their nephews and nieces..Sometimes at night he wants to hear stories about these people, and I tell him what I know about them. Happy stories, sad stories, frightening stories. For him the family is a safe refuge, a link binding him to many people whom he loves and who love him. I once heard that everyone on this earth is at least distantly related to everyone else. Somehow this is a comforting idea." - Author: Oliver Pötzsch

Quotes About Filling The Void

"By journeys end the brides were much better acquainted with their grooms and more or less pleased with the matches.

Having read his insufferable memoir, "A Residence of Twenty-one Years in the Sandwich Islands", all I can say is: Im happy for her?" - Author: Sarah Vowell
