Pierre Ceresole Quotes

"If the gooseberry said: I havent the heart to be a real proper gooseberry because if everyone were a gooseberry the world wouldnt continue to exist this would be a stupid argument and the world would be deprived of a useful fruit. If you are called upon to be a gooseberry in all the senses--pleasant or ludicrous--of the word, you should be one with all your heart and soul, without a backward glance."

Lawrence Crane Quotes

"To become desireless, to not want anything external to ourselves, means we rest in ourselves, whole, joyous and happy. In this state, our true nature is constant love, unending love, giving love."

Quotes About Lamentation

"Here again, the difference between the effective and the virtual, between mourning and its possibility, seems fragile and porous. The anguished apprehension of mourning (without which the act of friendship would not spring forth in its very energy) insinuates itself a priori and anticipates itself; it haunts and plunges the friend, before mourning, into mourning. This apprehension weeps before the lamentation, it weeps death before death, and this is the very respiration of friendship, the extreme of its possibility. Hence surviving is at once the essence, the origin and the possibility, the condition of possibility of friendship; it is the grieved act of loving. This time of surviving thus gives the time of friendship." - Author: Jacques Derrida

Quotes About Tooth

"I was not in the bathroom, in the tub, or in the spigot; I did not hold court in the mirror above her head or stand in miniature at the tip of every bristle on Lindseys or Buckleys toothbrush. In some way I could not account for- had they reached a state of bliss? were my parents back together forever? had Buckley begun to tell someone his troubles? would my fathers heart truly heal?- I was done yearning for them, needing them to yearn for me. Though I still would. Though they still would. Always." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Thinking Freely

"I wont desecrate beauty with cynicism anymore.

I will breathe fresh air while I learn, all over again, grace freely given and wisdom honored; and when my fingers fumble, whenI sound flat or sharp, I will simply try again." - Author: Sarah Bessey
