Ingri DAulaire Quotes

"They spell-caught the sounds of cat paws, the breath of fish, the spittle of birds, the hairs of a womans beard, and the roots of a mountain, and spun them around the sinews of a bear. That made a bond that looked as fine as a ribbon of silk, but, since it was made of things not in this world, it was so strong nothing in the world could break it."

Quotes About Inner Evil

"In the use of force, one simplifies the situation by assuming that the evil to be overcome is clear-cut, definite, and irreversible. Hence there remains but one thing: to eliminate it. Any dialogue with the sinner, any question of the irreversibility of his act, only means faltering and failure. Failure to eliminate evil is itself a defeat. Anything that even remotely risks such defeat is in itself capitulation to evil. The irreversibility of evil then reaches out to contaminate even the tolerant thought of the hesitant crusader who, momentarily, doubts the total evil of the enemy he is about to eliminate. p. 21" - Author: Thomas Merton

Quotes About Feeling Very Sad

"Well, obviously, shes feeling very sad, because of Cedric dying. Then i expect shes feeling confused because she liked Cedric and now she likes Harry, and she cant work out who she likes best. Then shell be feeling guilty, thinking its an insult to Cedrics memory to be kissing Harry at all, and shell be worrying about what everyone else might say about her if she starts going out with Harry . And she probably cant work out what her feelings towards Harry are anyway, because he was the one who was with Cedric when Cedric died, so thats all very mixed up and painful. Oh, and shes afraid shes going to be thrown off the Ravenclaw Quidditch team because shes flying so badly."

Quotes About Bitter Truth

"Fool! The Ideal is in thyself, the impediment too is in thyself: thy Condition is but the stuff thou art to shape that same Ideal out of: what matters whether such stuff be of this sort or that, so the Form thou give it be heroic, be poetic? O thou that pinest in the imprisonment of the Actual, and criest bitterly to the gods for a kingdom wherein to rule and create, know this of a truth: the thing thou seekest is already with thee, ‘here or nowhere, couldst thou only see!" - Author: Thomas Carlyle

Quotes About Pieces Of Me

"Gradually, the night stumbled as if stunned and wandering aimlessly into an overcast day -- limped through the wilderland of transition as though there were no knowing where the waste of darkness ended and the ashes of light began. The low clouds seemed full of grief -- tense and uneasy with accumulated woe -- and yet affectless, unable to rain, as if the air clenched itself too hard for tears. And through the dawn, Atiaran and Covenant moved heavily, unevenly, like pieces of a broken lament." - Author: Stephen R. Donaldson

Quotes About Lobo

"¡Los ángeles del sexo! Son maravillosos precisamente por lo mucho que sorprenden, por lo mucho que cambian. Tú por ejemplo, con tu aspecto de que nunca te han tocado, puedo imaginarte mordiendo y arañando. Estoy seguro que te cambiaría hasta la voz. He visto cambiar tanto... Hay voces de mujer que suenan como ecos poéticos y sobrenaturales. Luego, cambian. Los ojos cambian. Creo que todas esas leyendas sobre personas que por la noche se transforman en animales -como la historia del hombre lobo, por ejemplo- fueron inventadas por hombres que vieron transformarse por la noche a las mujeres, a las criaturas idealizadas y veneradas, en animales, y las creyeron endemoniadas." - Author: Anaïs Nin
