Katherine Easer Quotes

"A few weeks ago I had a dream. I dreamed I was back at the house, in the red room, reading my microeconomics textbook. Maddy outside playing with Hope, and Agnes was preparing dinner. It was just like old times. I was elated. I knew all along that they werent really dead. It was all just a terrible mistake. Maddy joined me in the library. Strangely, she didnt smell like anything. Not her usual crème brulee or green apples or candy. Thats when I realized she was dead, though I didnt know I was dreaming. She apologized for everything and then proceeded to explain why things had turned out the way they had. Her story made complete sense. It was what I needed to hear. Finally I had an answer. Finally I could let go. And then she vanishedWhen I woke up, in a pool of sweat, I couldnt remember a thing Maddy had said."

Linda Lee Chaikin Quotes

Kate Morgenroth Quotes

"When I was feeling more secure, I started to see his insecurities. Arent relationships like that? Its like being on a seesaw. There are those precious moments when youre just even with each other, but you move through that, and then one person being down by definition means the other person is up. I knew he loved me, and I knew he was afraid. I discovered that, if you look, you can actually see everything. All you have to do is clear away your own fears. The things you think are so well hidden: we can all see them. Thats the secret. Everyone can see everything."

Quotes About Fat Shaming

"Fat-bashing in all its varied forms–criticism, exclusion, shaming, fat talk, self-deprecation, jokes, gossip, bullying–is one of the last acceptable forms of prejudice.

Quotes About Flourishing Love

"Ive come to think that flourishing consists of putting yourself in situations in which you lose self-consciousness and become fused with other people, experiences, or tasks. It happens sometimes when you are lost in a hard challenge, or when an artist or a craftsman becomes one with the brush or the tool. It happens sometimes while youre playing sports, or listening to music or lost in a story, or to some people when they feel enveloped by Gods love. And it happens most when we connect with other people. Ive come to think that happiness isnt really produced by conscious accomplishments. Happiness is a measure of how thickly the unconscious parts of our minds are intertwined with other people and with activities. Happiness is determined by how much information and affection flows through us covertly every day and year." - Author: David Brooks

Quotes About Speakeasies

"And the City, in its own way, gets down for you, cooperates, smoothing its sidewalks, correcting its curbstones, offering you melons and green apples on the corner. Racks of yellow head scarves; strings of Egyptian beads. Kansas fried chicken and something with raisins call attention to an open window where the aroma seems to lurk. And if thats not enough, doors to speakeasies stand ajar and in that cool dark place a clarinet coughs and clears its throat waiting for the woman to decide on the key. She makes up her mind and as you pass by informs your back that she is daddys little angel child. The City is smart at this: smelling and good and looking raunchy; sending secret messages disguised as public signs: this way, open here, danger to let colored only single men on sale woman wanted private room stop dog on premises absolutely no money down fresh chicken free delivery fast. And good at opening locks, dimming stairways. Covering your moans with its own." - Author: Toni Morrison

Quotes About Dressing To Impress

"As awesome as it is to be with a big act and get three catered meals a day and get a dressing room with an actual shower in it, its hard sometimes as a new artist to come across in 25 minutes.

Quotes About Giuseppe Arcimboldo

"But why was the room suddenly becoming so dark? It was the middle of the afternoon.

He turned his head in the other direction and saw that the shutters, in obedience to some mysterious command, were closing slowly, blocking the passage of light." - Author: Dino Buzzati

Hope you understand my perspective of life, that I assume is right." - Author: Cesar
