Lola Jaye Quotes

"Best friends are a bit special and a bit rare - like sand made out of gold - and when you find a good one, keep her. Treat her the way you like to be treated. And always be loyal."

John R Perry Quotes

"All procrastinators put off things they have to do. Structured procrastination is the art of making this negative trait work for you. The key idea is that procrastinating does not mean doing absolutely nothing. Procrastinators seldom do absolutely nothing; they do marginally useful things, such as gardening or sharpening pencils or making a diagram of how they will reorganize their files when they get around to it. Why does the procrastinator do these things? Because they are a way of not doing something more important. If all the procrastinator had left to do was to sharpen some pencils, no force on earth could get him to do it. The procrastinator can be motivated to do difficult, timely, and important tasks, however, as long as these tasks are a way of not doing something more important."

Ferdinand Ebner Quotes

"To talk about God, except in the context of prayer, is to take His name in vain.One may, indeed, talk to a child about God, but this is on a par with telling him that he was brought to his mother by a stork."

Paul Mooney Quotes

"I am very concerned about Barbara Streisand using the H word - honkey. Thats what I am concerned about. I am worried about Barbara."

G K Chesterton Quotes

"The Saint is medicine because he is an antidote. Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr; he is mistaken for a poison because he is an antidote. He will generally be found restoring the world to sanity by exaggerating whatever the world neglects, which is by no means always the same element in every age. Yet each generation seeks its saint by instinct; and he is not what the people want, but rather what the people need."

Magali Pool Quotes

Autumn Christian Quotes

"Remember that if I were born of the underworld, you were born of flowers. You are the blood the forest feeds upon, and it is you who gave the woods their dark magic. Time doesnt exist, and in another world I never left you. Ive transformed your wounds into a scepter for a queen. The nightcatcher may think that shes had her victory - but your veins are buried in the map of the earth and she can never have you. She thinks she can own the universe because shes enslaved gods and eaten stars, but she couldnt even kill me, living here in her tunnels, because you protected me with your love."

Edwin Edwards Quotes

KT Bryan Quotes

"So whats Pakistan like?" she asked. I told her Pakistan was many things, from seaside to desert to farmland stretched between rivers and canals; I told her that I had driven with my parents and my brother to China on the Karakoram Highway, passing along the bottoms of valleys higher than the tops of the Alps; I told her that alcohol was illegal for Muslims to buy and so I had a Christian bootlegger who delivered booze to my house in a Suzuki pickup." - Author: Mohsin Hamid

Quotes About Excluding Yourself

"When a man asserts his independence and feels that now at last hes on his own. When you felt like that, then the very air seemed too crowded to breathe; a complete fulness seemed to be excluding you from a place which, nevertheless, you were unable to leave. But when you gave in to the thing, gave yourself up to it, there was no burden to be borne. It became not a load but a medium, a sort of splendour as of eatable, drinkable, breathable gold, which fed and carried you and not only poured into you but out from you as well." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Faded Flowers

"Dangerous and indifferent ground: against its fixed mass the tragedies of people count for nothing although the signs of misadventure are everywhere. No past slaughter nor cruelty, no accident nor murder that occurs on the little ranches or at the isolate crossroads with their bare populations of three or seventeen, or in the reckless trailer courts of mining towns delays the flood of morning light. Fences, cattle, roads, refineries, mines, gravel pits, traffic lights, graffitid celebration of athletic victory on bridge overpass, crust of blood on the Wal-Mart loading dock, the sun-faded wreaths of plastic flowers marking death on the highway are ephemeral. Other cultures have camped here a while and disappeared. Only earth and sky matter. Only the endlessly repeated flood of morning light. You begin to see that God does not owe us much beyond that." - Author: Annie Proulx

"My husband is such a healthy eater. Except when it comes to sweets. He never consumes anything except fruit until noon.

Quotes About Nonsense Relationship

"I got him is nonsense in terms of love relationships, and so is I lost him. If we could stop thinking in terms of capture, we would not have to fear the loosening of the captives bonds and our failing beauty, and he would not have ulcers about being outsrtipped or belittled." - Author: Germaine Greer

Quotes About Test Scores

"When you fear you will confirm a negative stereotype, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy not because the stereotype is true, but because you cant stop worrying that you could become an example proving it.This self-fulfilling prophecy, being only a matter of perception, can be easily sublimated. Another study by Steele measured the math abilities of men versus women. When the questions were easy, the women and men performed the same. When they were difficult, the womens scores plummeted lower than did those of their male peers. When they ran the tests again with new participants, but this time before handing out the problems told the subjects that men and women tended to perform equally on the exam, the scores leveled out. The women performed just as well as did the men. The power of the stereotype--women are bad at math--was nullified." - Author: David McRaney
