Denise Domning Quotes

"I know nothing of being a wife, but I have learned much about the running and maintenance of an estate. It may be that you will find my manner too straightforward for your tastes, but, my lord, it is just that - my manner. Would that I die before I give up that part of me."

Jhene Aiko Quotes

"You know how a lot of people say, I lose myself in music, or I like to escape, but I want my music to be more of an awakening. I want it to make people to be aware of life; I dont want my music to be a distraction. I want to light a path."

Tony Jones Quotes

"One of our group said that a lot of people in church spend a lot of time correcting each other these days, but in order to correct another person in love, you really have to know that person. Only then, she told us, can you practice the kind of community that the Didache teaches."

Stephen Parrish Quotes

"An old book was a time capsule. When you opened the front cover, you opened a door to another world—a world accessible through a kind of looking glass made of hard-board and cloth. The authors voice resonated in the readers head with the same words that had resonated in his own as he wrote them. He spoke to the reader from the past. What he had witnessed, experienced, learned, and discovered would live forever. You only had to turn a page to travel in time."

Grant Tinker Quotes

Quotes About Illusion Vs Reality

"But like a boat with a twisted rudder, I kept coming back to the same place. I wasnt going anywhere. I was myself, waiting on the shore for me to return. Was that so depressing?Who knows? Maybe that was despair. What Turgenev called disillusionment. Or Dostoyevsky, hell. Or Somerset Maugham, reality. Whatever the label, I figured it was me." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Manly Drinking

"All boys wish to be manly; but they often try to become so by copying the vices of men rather than their virtues. They see men drinking, smoking, swearing; so these poor little fellows sedulously imitate such bad habits, thinking they are making themselves more like men. They mistake rudeness for strength, disrespect to parents for independence. They read wretched stories about boy brigands and boy detectives, and fancy themselves heroes when they break the laws, and become troublesome and mischievous. Out of such false influences the criminal classes are recruited. Many a little boy who only wishes to be manly, becomes corrupted and debased by the bad examples around him and the bad literature which he reads. The cure for this is to give him good books, show him truly noble examples from life and history, and make him understand how infinitely above this mock-manliness is the true courage which ennobles human nature." - Author: James Clarke

Quotes About Gisbourne

"A horse broke through beside her, nearly knocking the mare over. At first Marian thought the horse unmounted, possibly Gisbournes, running from the boar, because she saw no rider—and then she did see him and realized he was clad in the colors of the forest, nearly invisible, almost indistinguishable against the emerald, olive, and jade. It was the shock of white-blond hair that betrayed his identity, and the grimness of his features." - Author: Jennifer Roberson

Quotes About Italian Mothers

"And all those boys of Europe born in those times, and thereabouts those times, Russian, French, Belgian, Serbian, Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Italian, Prussian, German, Austrian, Turkish – and Canadian, Australian, American, Zulu, Gurkha, Cossack, and all the rest – their fate was written in a ferocious chapter in the book of life, certainly. Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mothers milk, millions of instances of small talk and baby talk, beatings and kisses, ganseys and shoes, piled up in history in great ruined heaps, with a loud and broken music, human stories told for nothing, for ashes, for deaths amusement, flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls, all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the millstones of a coming war." - Author: Sebastian Barry

Quotes About Misspelled

"My fathers name is Dee, so when I was born they named me Katherine Dee and they took the K from Katherine and put it with his name, sort of to give me my dads namesake. But its hysterical how often it gets misspelled. I used to be like, No one capitalizes my D!" - Author: KaDee Strickland
