Dirk Hayhurst Quotes

"We shared the same faith, which was big because she was worried about getting matched with an Internet-spawned psychopathic killing machine. I told her that, historically speaking, there have been several psychos who believed in Jesus, but she told me if I gave her any trouble shed kick me in the crotch and run - she told me it was what Jesus would do."

"Because of Lost, particularly, J.J. Abramss fans are all over his stuff."

Antonio Feio Quotes

"Se as pessoas começarem a parar por um momento para olhar paras os casos como o meu, ou, simplesmente para a sua própria vida com olhos de ver, talvez comecem a relativizar os seus próprios problemas e possam perceber o que de facto vale a pena na vida."

Jeremias Gotthelf Quotes

"Hard by the church stood the public house; so often the two are closely conjoined, honorably sharing both joys and sorrows."

Steve Merrick Quotes

"Being a hermit involves a lot of what we would call routine tasks taken to an extreme, even the morning flush of the toilet becomes a ritual."

Carol Oates Quotes

"Deep down under where his heart resided, strangled up in thorny vines of guilt, anger, fear and longing, there lay something deeper in him, something that he couldnt see but she could."

John Newcombe Quotes

Charles Boardman Hawes Quotes

"Shepherds, did they but know it, walk through greater halls than kings."

Pete Langman Quotes

"Zachary looked down into the swirling morass that was his beer as the man walked onto the stage and started to play a solo piece, the band respectfully allowing him to start off his set by staking his claim. Zachary would give him staking his claim. He had his guitar nestling close by his side, as always, the leather of the case gently touching his calf, sending an almost erotic charge through his body every time he moved like the less than innocent brush of a future lovers hand on a bare arm."

Quotes About Foolish Heart

"Foolish woman, will holding it secret in your heart make it any less true? Ifyou never tell, never speak of it, will it become only a dream, less than a dream, a nightmare half-remembered?" - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Protecting

"Our system was not set up to for the government to be able to do with a mans kingdom what they want. It was set up to protect that mans kingdom, to allow him to feel that his borders, no matter how great or small, would always be secure and that he would always be allowed to defend them. The Supreme Court took that right away with their eminent domain ruling back in 2005. The governments have taken advantage of that eminent domain ruling, and you, the media, have failed at protecting citizens." - Author: Tit Elingtin

Quotes About Authority And Responsibility

"Any government will work if authority and responsibility are equal and coordinate. This does not insure "good" government, it simply insures that it will work. But such governments are rare — most people want to run things, but want no part of the blame. This used to be called the "backseat driver" syndrome." - Author: Robert A. Heinlein

Quotes About African American Life

"In the American way of life pleasure involves comfort, convenience, and sexual stimulation. Pleasure, so defined, has little to do with the past and views the future as no more than a repetition of a hedonistically driven present. This market morality stigmatizes others as objects for personal pleasure or bodily stimulation. The reduction of individuals to objects of pleasure is especially evident in the culture industries--television, radio, video, music. Like all Americans, African Americans are influenced greatly by the images of comfort. These images contribute to the predominance of the market-inspired way of life over all others and thereby edge out nonmarket values--love, care, service to others--handed down by preceding generations. The predominance of this way of life among those living in poverty-ridden conditions, with a limited capacity to ward of self-contempt and self-hatred, results in the possible triumph of the nihilistic threat in black America." - Author: Cornel West

Quotes About Difficult Change

"Have you ever really wanted to be able to do something, but you came across a roadblock of some kind?You have a difficult choice. I made that choice once and it changed my whole life, by giving me experiences I never would have had if I took the easy street and had not tried." - Author: Deanie Humphrys Dunne

Quotes About Abandoned Buildings

"Religion, by its very nature as an untestable belief in undetectable beings and an unknowable afterlife, disables our reality checks. It ends the conversation. It cuts off inquiry: not only factual inquiry, but moral inquiry. Because Gods law trumps human law, people who think theyre obeying God can easily get cut off from their own moral instincts. And these moral contortions dont always lie in the realm of theological game-playing. They can have real-world consequences: from genocide to infanticide, from honor killings to abandoned gay children, from burned witches to battered wives to blown-up buildings." - Author: Greta Christina

Quotes About Funny Being Baked

"I could wish to spy the nakedness of their hearts, and through the different disguises of customs, climates, and religion, find out what is good in them, to fashion my own by. It is for this reason that I have not seen the Palais Royal - nor the facade of the Louvre - nor have attempted to swell the catalogues we have of pictures, statues, and churches - I conceive every fair being as a temple, and would rather enter in, and see the original drawings and loose sketches hung up in it, than the Transfiguration of Raphael itself." - Author: Laurence Sterne

Quotes About Sorcerers

"Malicious acts are performed by people for personal gain … Sorcerers, though, have an ulterior purpose for their acts, which has nothing to do with personal gain. The fact that they enjoy their acts does not count as gain. Rather, it is a condition of their character. The average man acts only if there is a chance for profit. Warriors say they act not for profit but for the spirit." - Author: Carlos Castaneda
