Rhonda Riley Quotes

"I tried to turn my heart to the living, to the place I was, but putting seed in land not owned by me or my family seemed alien. The sandy, gray-white soil looked like dirty beach sand, not fit for growing anything. It smelled like dust. Yet weeds and trees and wildflowers grew along the roads. When we drove into town, we passed dense, impenetrable woods and fields of corn, peas, and peppers. Such new combinations of seemingly poor soil and happy flora puzzled me. Everywhere I went, I picked up the dirt, examining it for clues. Bringing anything out of such soil would require a whole new language on my part. I imagined there must be something richer and darker under the gray sand, or some trick the farmers all knew. Trick or no trick, what I had always been able to do well now seemed inaccessible. Still, I searched the yard around our house for the best spot to plant my fall garden."

Marie Osmond Quotes

Quotes About Cunninghams

"Golly Moses," Jem said reverently. "One minute theyre tryin to kill him and the next theyre tryin to turn him loose . . . Ill never understand those folks as long as I live." Atticus said you just had to know ‘em. He said the Cunninghams hadnt taken anything from or off anybody since they migrated to the New World. He said the other thing about them was, once you earned their respect they were for you tooth and nail. Atticus said he had a feeling, nothing more than a suspicion, that they left the jail that night with considerable respect for the Finches. Then too, he said, it took a thunderbolt plus another Cunningham to make one of them change his mind. "If wed had two of that crowd, wedve had a hung jury." - Author: Harper Lee

Quotes About Blotto

"I am thinking of one woman and the rest is blotto. I say I am thinking of her, but the truth is I am dying a stellar death. I am lying there like a sick star waiting for the light to go out. Years ago I lay on this same bed and I waited and waited to be born. Nothing happened. Except that my mother, in her Lutheran rage, threw a bucket of water over me. My mother, poor imbecile that she was, thought I was lazy. She didnt know that I had gotten caught in the stellar drift, that I was being pulverized to a black extinction out there in the farthest rim of the universe." - Author: Henry Miller

You dont have time to carry grudges; you dont have time to cling to the need to be right." - Author: Anne Lamott
