JM Reep Quotes

"Leah looked at her parents, lost in their own fantasies, and decided that the three of them were a pretty pathetic family - but she wasnt sure who was more pathetic: the dateless girl spending the night of the big dance by herself in her bedroom, or the parents who foolishly believed a boy would arrive on their doorstep with flowers, a limo, and a promise to rescue their daughter from her solitude."

Bindu Quotes

"My new focus is SELF-LOVE! If you pay attention you will notice that the love flowing from me has nothing to do with you. It is simply my joy in living this gift called life. I loved you when you werent worthy of it or maybe just not ready for it, but you taught me not to settle for it. I finally get the lesson in it!"

Cami Ostman Quotes

"When you undertake a daunting task, an adventure bigger than you ever thought youd take on, you dont get to know what challenges the universe will present to you on the way. You can decide where you will go and how much money youll spend and what your activities will be, but there will always be something unexpected, a hurdle of sorts, that offers you an opportunity to learn something about yourself if you take it in stride."

Melvin Konner Quotes

"At the conclusion of all our studies we must try once again to experience the human soul as soul, and not just as a buzz of bioelectricity; the human will as will, and not just a surge of hormones; the human heart not as a fibrous, sticky pump, but as the metaphoric organ of understanding. We need not believe in them as metaphysical entities -- they are as real as the flesh and blood they are made of. But we must believe in them as entities; not as analyzed fragments, but as wholes made real by our contemplation of them, by the words we use to talk of them, by the way we have transmuted them to speech. We must stand in awe of them as unassailable, even though they are dissected before our eyes."

Rebecca Barry Quotes

"Heartache, to her, coursed through everything--which was as it should be, since people needed it to make them kind.pg. 4"

John Banville Quotes

"It seems to me a work of art is the evidence offered by a fantastically observant witness"

Julia Kristeva Quotes

"The other that will guide you and itself through this dissolution is a rhythm, text, music, and within language, a text. But what is the connection that holds you both together? Counter-desire, the negative of desire, inside-out desire, capable of questioning (or provoking) its own infinite quest. Romantic, filial, adolescent, exclusive, blind and Oedipal: it is all that, but for others. It returns to where you are, both of you, disappointed, irritated, ambitious, in love with history, critical, on the edge and even in the midst of its own identity crisis; a crisis of enunciation and of the interdependence of its movements, an instinctual drive that descends in waves, tearing apart the symbolic thesis."

Quotes About Sticking Together In A Relationship

"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I may know Him better. I want to know and rely on the love You have for me, Jesus, and live in that love. You say that whoever lives in love lives in You, and You in him. In this way, love is made complete in me, so that I can have confidence today and forever. I want an up close and personal relationship with You, one where I dont have to pretend or hide. When I feel insecure, insignificant, or unloved, remind me of Your perfect love that has the power to cast out my fear. Thank You for Your love that is patient, is kind, and keeps no record of my wrongs. I trust that because Your love is perfect, I dont have to be. I will remain in Your love and be confident of this: that He who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. In Jesus name I pray, Amen." - Author: Renee Swope

Quotes About Becomes

"At first, when an idea, a poem, or the desire to write takes hold of you, work is a pleasure, a delight, and your enthusiasm knows no bounds. But later on you work with difficulty, doggedly, desperately. For once you have committed yourself to a particular work, inspiration changes its form and becomes an obsession, like a love-affair… which haunts you night and day! Once at grips with a work, we must master it completely before we can recover our idleness." - Author: Natalie Clifford Barney
