Geoffrey Vickers Quotes

"Every contact you make with a human being (or even an animal) is an experiment and a dangerous and therefore important experiment. It is dangerous because it can never be repeated. However serious, however trivial it may be, though you will afterwards make many others, perhaps more unusual, more intimate or more complete - that chance will not come again.Human contacts are dangerous, too, because they matter so much, and no one knows how much they matter. Even the most trivial meeting makes a difference, slight but lasting, to one or both. Intimate contacts make heaven and hell, they can heal and tear, kill and raise from the dead.These contacts are the fields on which we succeed or fail. I believe that they matter far more than anything else in life. What we are is written on the people whom we have met and know, touched, loved, hated and passed by. It is the lives of others that testify for or against us, not our own."

Ann Demeulemeester Quotes

Allie Burke Quotes

"Elias could not have prepared himself for the moment that he walked into that cottage and laid his eyes on her. Her emerald green eyes--the way they gazed upon him like there were no surroundings or time or sounds to distract her, like he was all that existed."

Steen Eiler Rasmussen Quotes

"..(larchitecte) il compose la musique que dautres vont jouer. De plus, afin de vraiment comprendre ce quest larchitecture, il faut se rappeler que les gens qui linterprètent ne sont pas des musiciens sensibles qui jouent la partition de quelquun dautre, lui donnant un phrasé particulier, accentuant lun ou lautre trait de loeuvre. Au contraire, cest une multitude de gens ordinaires qui, comme des fourmis travaillant ensemble à la construction de la fourmilière, contribuent de manière tout à fait impersonnelle à lensemble, souvent sans comprendre ce quils aident à créer. Derrière eux il y a larchitecte qui organise le travail, et lon pourrait vraiment dire que larchitecture est un art dorganisation. Le bâtiment est produit comme un film sans vedettes, une sorte de documentaire avec des gens ordinaires qui jouent tous les rôles."

Sally Clarkson Quotes

"I often must sacrifice my own needs and desires for the purpose of giving my children what they need and modeling for them the depths of Christs love."...make myself available in the routine tasks and myriad interruptions of daily life b/c I believe it is Gods will for me to serve my family through them."

Tom A Watson Quotes

"I have to say obviously it is not illegal for people to go to dinner and to socialise and take hospitality off members of the media organisations, but it was the scale and the timing and the frequency of contact that I thought was shocking."


"This Jesus of Nazereth without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caeser, Muhammad and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on matters human and divine than all philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such words of life as were never spoke before or since and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times."

Quotes About Dun

"Pani Dunwiddy była stara i tak też wyglądała. Istniały epoki geologiczne młodsze od pani Dunwiddy.

Quotes About Heart Shaped Lips

"But truth be told, Im not as dour-looking as I would like. Im stuck with this round, sweetie-pie face, tiny heart-shaped lips, the daintiest dimples, and apple cheeks so rosy I appear in a perpetual blush. At five foot four, I barely squeak by average height. And then theres my voice: straight out of second grade. I come across so young and innocent and harmless that I have been carded for buying maple syrup. Tourists feel more safe approaching me for directions, telemarketers always ask if my mother is home, and waitresses always, always call me Hon." - Author: Sarah Vowell
