"Its funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home. But then you come home, and of course its not the same. You cant live with it, you cant live away from it. And it seems like from then on theres always this yearning for some place that doesnt exist. I felt that. Still do. Im never completely at home anywhere."

Quotes About Refurbishing

"The old must be torn down for the new to be raised; to have a resurrection you must have a crucifixion, but God wastes nothing, not even the wrong we have imagined into existence.

It is the refurbishing of the soul." - Author: Wm. Paul Young

Quotes About Love Good And Bad

"Like most girls, I want a lot. Fame and fortune. Equal rights. Shoes no one else has. But Id trade all that in for the perfect guy. (Dont tell me theres something wrong with that.

Anyway, ever since I could think, I have been imagining and reimagining the exact sort of boy I want to love and who would love me back.

Quotes About Sartori

"A capacity for inferiority in the growing adult is threatened by the temptation by squander that capacity ruthlessly, to revel in hallowness. The syndrom especially plaques anyone who lives behind a mask. An elephant in her disquise as a human princess, a scarecrow with painted features, a glittering tiara under which to glow and glide in anonymous glamour. A witchs hat, a wizards stole, a scholars gown, a soldiers dress sartorials. A hundred ways to duck the question: how will I live with myself now that I nkow what I know." - Author: Gregory Maguire

Quotes About Doing Good

"Today you are encouraged to take action. Thinking and doing are two very different things. Success never comes to look for you while you wait around thinking about it. You are what you do, not what you say youll do. Knowledge is basically useless without action. Good things dont come to those who wait; they come to those who work on meaningful goals. Ask yourself whats really important and then have the courage to build your life around your answer. Prune nonessential commitments. Eliminate as much as you possibly can of everything else. No wasted time, no fluff, no regrets. And remember, if you wait until you feel 100% ready to begin, youll likely be waiting the rest of your life.So challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being. Challenge yourself to follow through – to live what you preach, to walk your talk!" - Author: The Angel Affect
