"Its not our place to judge the guilt or innocence of the prisoners, Nurse Webster. The sooner you learn that the better.

Quotes About Laughing With Your Love

"You guys know I love you, right?" I glance between them, knowing theyll freak, but it has to be said. They look at each other, exchanging a look of alarm, both of them wondering what couldve possibly happened to the girl they once pegged as the Ice Queen. "Um, okay..." Haven says, shaking her head. But I just smile and grasp them both to me, squeezing them tightly as I whisper to Miles, "Whatever you do dont stop acting or singing, its going to bring you great happiness." And before he can respond, Ive moved on to Haven, knowing I have to get this over with and quick, so I can get Damen to Avas, but determined to find a way to urge her to love herself more, and that Josh is worth hanging on to for however long it lasts.

Quotes About Turnpike

"If youre from New Jersey," Nathan had said, "and you write thirty books, and you win the Nobel Prize, and you live to be white-haired and ninety-five, its highly unlikely but not impossible that after your death theyll decide to name a rest stop for you on the Jersey Turnpike. And so, long after youre gone, you may indeed be remembered, but mostly by small children, in the backs of cars, when they lean forward and tell their parents, Stop, please, stop at Zuckerman—I have to make a pee.

Quotes About Czeslaw

"Materialism is a conviction based not upon evidence or logic but upon what Carl Sagan (speaking of another kind of faith) called a "deep-seated need to believe." Considered purely as a rational philosophy, it has little to recommend it; but as an emotional sedative, what Czeslaw Milosz liked to call the opiate of unbelief, it offers a refuge from so many elaborate perplexities, so many arduous spiritual exertions, so many trying intellectual and moral problems, so many exhausting expressions of hope or fear, charity or remorse. In this sense, it should be classified as one of those religions of consolation whose purpose is not to engage the mind or will with the mysteries of being but merely to provide a palliative for existential grievances and private disappointments. Popular atheism is not a philosophy but a therapy." - Author: David Bentley Hart

(Alexion)Do you really believe that we need to have our hearts ripped out? (Danger)A flower cant grow without rain. (Alexion)Too much rain and it drowns. (Danger)And yet the most beautiful of the lotus flowers are the ones that grow in the deepest mud. (Alexion)" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
