[Oh, Issyk-Kul, My Issyk-Kul--my Unfinished Song! Why Did I Have To Remember That Day When I Came Here With Asel And Stopped On The Same Rise, Right Above The Water? Everything Was The Same. The Blue-and-white Waves Ran Up The Yellow Shore Holding Hands. The Sun Was Setting Behind The Mountains, And At The Far End Of The Lake The Water Was Tinged With Pink. The Swans Wheeled Over The Water With Excited, Exultant Cries. They Soared Up And Dropped Down On Outspread Wings That Seemed To Hum. They Whipped Up The Water And Started Wide, Foaming Circles. Everything Was The Same, Only There Was No Asel With Me. Where Are You, My Slender Poplar In A Red Kerchief, Where Are You Now?]

Quotes About Bitterness In Friendship

"You cannot kill me here. Bring your soldiers, your death, your disease, your collapsed economy because it doesnt matter, I have nothing left to lose and you cannot kill me here. Bring the tears of orphans and the wails of a mothers loss, bring your God damn air force and Jesus on a cross, bring your hate and bitterness and long working hours, bring your empty wallets and love long since gone but you cannot kill me here. Bring your sneers, your snide remarks and friendships never felt, your letters never sent, your kisses never kissed, cigarettes smoked to the bone and cancer killing fears but you cannot kill me here. For I may fall and I may fail but I will stand again each time and you will find no satisfaction. Because you cannot kill me here." - Author: Iain S. Thomas

There was just a best friend and endless hours to fill with Pixy Stix and laughing so hard you couldnt breathe." - Author: Kathryn Williams

Quotes About Apelar

"Um príncipe deve ter o extremo cuidado de nunca deixar que saia de sua boca nada que não esteja repleto das cinco qualidades supracitadas [piedade, fé, integridade, humanidade e religião]; e que ele pareça, ao ser visto e ouvido, todo piedade, todo fé, todo integridade, todo humanidade, todo religião - de resto, parecer possuir esta última qualidade é o que há de mais necessário. Os homens em geral julgam mais com os olhos que com as mãos; porque todos são capazes de ver, mas poucos, de sentir; todos veem aquilo que você parece, poucos tocam aquilo que você é; e estes poucos não ousam opor-se à opinião de muitos, que contam com a majestade do Estado para defendê-los; enfim, nas ações de todos os homens, especialmente nas dos príncipes, quando não há juiz a quem apelar, o que vale é o resultado final." - Author: Niccolò Machiavelli
