Jean Webster Quotes

"Half of the time I dont know what theyre talking about; their jokes seem to relate to a past that everyone but me has shared. Im a foreigner in the world and I dont understand the language."

Michael Stuhlbarg Quotes

"My mom and my dad are ebullient people, and I think I carry that with me."

Dean F Wilson Quotes

"Stories serve multiple purposes. At a basic level they are great entertainment, which is essential for living a happy and healthy life, but on a deeper level stories help us explore issues that are otherwise difficult to address. On one hand a good book helps us escape our troubles, and on the other hand it can help us face up to those troubles by bringing real issues to the fore, often in a more manageable way, since the problems are experienced vicariously through the eyes of another."

Dallas Willard Quotes

"What is truly profound is thought to be stupid and trivial, or worse, boring, while what is actually stupid and trivial is thought to be profound. That is what it means to fly upside down."

Elaine Seiler Quotes

"Nothing is static, Energetic frequencies are changing all the time. We, and everything in our world, are made of energy and as such, we too are changing---with or without our awareness."

Kurt Andersen Quotes

"I think we tend to be kind of ahistorical, and think that life as we are living it in the moment is all we know."

Michael Perez Quotes

"The experiences, the lessons, and the defeats,They were all necessary for me to be me,took me a while being blind before i could see,had to crawl on my knees before i stood on my feet,once i stood on my feet i found out i had wings,the flight is amazing, i felt like a king,and when no one is listening, i found out i can sing, what happy times and thoughts does it bring,whatever it takes just make sure you are free,free to live, and grow like a tree,The people you love are the branches you need,its not about the type, the color, or breed,Live life with ambition, ambition indeed,Thats what it took, and thats what i need."

Laszlo Krasznahorkai Quotes

"There is an intense relationship between proximate objects, a much weaker one between objects further away, and as for the really distant ones there is none at all, and that is the nature of God."

Justin Sane Quotes

"We are simply human beings. So it is important for us to treat each other in that capacity."

"He who doesnt lose his wits over certain things has no wits to lose."

Quotes About Inequality

"The territorial aristocracy of former ages was either bound by law, or thought itself bound by usage, to come to the relief of its serving-men and to relieve their distress. But the manufacturing aristocracy of our age first impoverishes and debases the men who serve it and then abandons them to be supported by the charity of the public. This is a natural consequence of what has been said before. Between the workman and the master there are frequent relations, but no real association.I am of the opinion, on the whole, that the manufacturing aristocracy which is growing up under our eyes is one of the harshest that ever existed in the world; but at the same time it is one of the most confined and least dangerous. Nevertheless, the friends of democracy should keep their eyes anxiously fixed in this direction; for if ever a permanent inequality of conditions and aristocracy again penetrates into the world, it may be predicted that this is the gate by which they will enter." - Author: Alexis de Tocqueville

Quotes About Alfredo

"If we put a gun to her head she would sing all day. Try it first with a bird, General Benjamin said gently to Alfredo. Like our soprano, they have no capacity to understand authority. The bird doesnt know enough to be afraid and the person holding the gun will only end up looking like a lunatic." - Author: Ann Patchett

Quotes About Aunt And Niece

"I tell my seven-year-old son about his remarkable forefathers. I leave out the bloody details. (For him these people are like knights, which sounds better than hangmen or executioners.) In his bedroom hangs a collage made up of photos of long-dead family members--great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, their aunts, their uncles, their nephews and nieces..Sometimes at night he wants to hear stories about these people, and I tell him what I know about them. Happy stories, sad stories, frightening stories. For him the family is a safe refuge, a link binding him to many people whom he loves and who love him. I once heard that everyone on this earth is at least distantly related to everyone else. Somehow this is a comforting idea." - Author: Oliver Pötzsch

Quotes About Disciplined

"One has this image of the Soviet state and the Red Army as being extremely disciplined but in the first four months of 1945 their soldiers were completely out of control." - Author: Antony Beevor

Quotes About Ariel The Little Mermaid

"I BET YOU DIDNT KNOW THIS, but lots of guys have a thing for Ariel. You know, from The Little Mermaid? Ive never been into her myself, but I can understand the attraction: she fills out her shells nicely, shes a redhead, and she spends most of the movie unable to speak. In light of this, Im not too disturbed about the semi Im sporting while watching Beauty and the Beast—part of the homework Erin gave me. I like Belle. Shes hot. Well…for a cartoon, anyway. She reminds me of Kate. Shes resourceful. Smart. And she doesnt take any shit from the Beast or that douchebag with the freakishly large arms. I stare at the television as Belle bends over to feed a bird. Then I lean forward, hoping for a nice cleavage shot… Im going to hell, arent I?" - Author: Emma Chase

Quotes About Shave

"I get a glimpse of my assailants face. Hard, with deep lines, a cruel mouth. Gray hair shaved almost to nonexistence, eyes so black they seem all pupils, a long, straight nose reddened by the freezing air. The powerful arm lifts again, his sights set on me. My hand flies to my shoulder, hungry for an arrow, but, of course, my weapons are stashed in the woods. I grit my teeth in anticipation of the next lash." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Blue Shirts

No, no, You cant go around naming people other things because you dont like their real name. "I like Blue just fine,"Gansey said. He didnt believe she was really offended; her face didnt look like it had at Ninos when theyd first met, and her ears were turning pink. He thought possibly, he was getting a little better at not offending her, although he couldnt seem to stop heading her. "Some of my favorite shirts are blue. However, I also like Jane." "Im not answering to that." - Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Quotes About North Carolina Mountains

"From the photo albums, every single print of her had been peeled away. Shots of the both of us together had been cut, the parts with her neatly trimmed away, leaving my image behind. Photos of me alone or of mountains and rivers and deer and cats were left intact. Three albums rendered into a revised past. It was as if Id been alone at birth, alone all my days, and would continue alone." - Author: Haruki Murakami
