Karen Maitland Quotes

"The day that I left my home, I had prayed that my children would forget me. I wanted to spare them the pain of remembering. But that night, as I crouched in the white mist, waiting, I knew more than anything that I wanted them to remember, I wanted desperately to go on living in someones memory. If we are not remembered, we are more than dead, for it is as if we had never lived."

Vaunda Micheaux Nelson Quotes

"So Ive got five books, a building, and a hundred bucks. Im starting my business tomorrow."

David Michie Quotes

"The main shift, you see, is from placing self at the center of our thoughts to putting others there. It is-what do you say?-a paradox that the more we can focus our thoughts on the well-being of others, the happier we become. The first one to benefit is oneself. I call this being wisely selfish."

Eric Wareheim Quotes

"When I was 15, I wore combat boots with a fluorescent Columbia ski jacket. I was trying to find myself."

Caesar J B Squitti Quotes

"The Truth is different than human truths; they are like LIGHT.Truths are like a color, absolute and true, while THE TRUTH is all colors and still colorless; the duality of Truth."

Quotes About Deserted Beaches

"The name Alaska is probably an abbreviation of Unalaska, derived from the original Aleut word agunalaksh, which means "the shores where the sea breaks its back." The war between water and land is never-ending. Waves shatter themselves in spent fury against the rocky bulwarks of the coast; giant tides eat away the sand beaches and alter the entire contour of an island overnight; williwaw winds pour down the side of a volcano like snow sliding off a roof, building to a hundred-mile velocity in a matter of minutes and churning the ocean into a maelstrom where the stoutest vessels founder." - Author: Corey Ford

Quotes About Retraite

"De trois à dix-huit ans, les Japonais étudient comme des possédés. De vingt-cinq ans à la retraite, ils travaillent comme des forcenés. De dix-huit à vingt-cinq ans, ils sont très conscients de vivre une parenthèse unique : il leur est donné de sépanouir. Même ceux qui ont réussi le terrible examen dentrée de lune des onze universités sérieuses peuvent un peu souffler : seule la sélection première importait vraiment" - Author: Amélie Nothomb

Quotes About Story Tagalog

"I suppose the best way to tell the story is simply to narrate it, without an effort to carry belief. The thing did not require belief. It was not a feeling of horror in ones bones, or a misty outline, or anything that needed to be given actuality by an act of faith. It was as solid as a wardrobe. You dont have to believe in wardrobes. They are there, with corners. (The Troll)" - Author: T.H. White

Quotes About Mad Hatter

"If the beginning of wisdom is in realizing that one knows nothing, then the beginning of understanding is in realizing that all things exist in accord with a single truth: Large things are made of smaller things. Drops of ink are shaped into letters, letters form words, words form sentences, and sentences combine to express thought. So it is with the growth of plants that spring from seeds, as well as with walls built from many stones. So it is with mankind, as the customs and traditions of our progenitors blend together to form the foundation for our own cities, history, and way of life. Be they dead stone, living flesh, or rolling sea; be they idle times or events of world-shattering proportion, market days or desperate battles, to this law, all things hold: Large things are made from small things. Significance is cumulative--but not always obvious. --Gaius Secondus" - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Messianic

"...nothing that is historical can relate itself, from its own ground, to anything messianic. Therefore, the Kingdom of God is not the telos of the historical dynamic; it cannot be established as a goal. From the standpoint of history, it is not the goal but the terminus [Ende]. Therefore, the secular order cannot be built on the idea of the Divine Kingdom, and theocracy has no political but only a religious meaning." - Author: Walter Benjamin

Quotes About Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God

"Lincoln was raised in the thick of Old School Calvinism. In Kentucky and Indiana, his parents belonged to a fire-breathing sect called Separate Baptism, in which congregants heard—in the tradition of Jonathan Edwards famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"—that they were bound for eternal hellfire, and nothing they could do or say or think would change their fate. Preachers did allow that a chosen few were ordained for grace and would be saved, but these fortunate ones had been selected by God before time began. As one Baptist preacher in Lincolns Kentucky explained it, "Long before the morning stars sang together . . . the Almighty looked down upon the ages yet unborn, as it were, in review before him, and selected one here and another there to enjoy eternal life and left the rest to the blackness of darkness forever." Such Baptist ministers were so intense that it has been said that they "out-Calvined Calvin." - Author: Joshua Wolf Shenk

Quotes About Saladin

"He was weary. Used up. He had been weary for months, for more than a year. In that weariness, in the exhaustion of his spirit, lay the seed of what he was; of what he had become. Of what they had made him, Saladins men, and all the others as well. Even his own kind. She had cried out for him to beware, when his horse had been hurt, and fallen. And again when hed stabbed into the boars throat. He recalled it clearly: "Be careful!" she had cried. "Oh my lord, take care!" But nothing else, past that. Because with the cries of his horse in his head, and the stench of blood in his nostrils, what he killed was no longer a boar. What he was, was no longer a man, but a body, mind, and spirit remade on the anvil of war, remixed in the terrible crucible of a holy insanity." - Author: Jennifer Roberson

Quotes About Kurtz In Heart Of Darkness

"It had been a bad trip ... fast and wild in some moments, slow and dirty in others, but on balance it looked like a bummer. On my way back to San Francisco, I tried to compose a fitting epitaph. I wanted something original, but there was no escaping the echo of Mistah Kurtz final words from the heart of darkness: "The horror! The horror! ... Exterminate all the brutes!" - Author: Hunter S.
