Michael Korda Quotes

"Ask a book publisher how many copies a book has sold, and he or she, presuming youre not the author, will probably try to remember the size of the first printing, then double it.

"The voice of the people has been said to be the voice of God; and, however generally this maxim has been quoted and believed, it is not true to fact. The people are turbulent and changing, they seldom judge or determine right." - Author: Alexander Hamilton

Quotes About Meeting Obligations

"More and more, I felt that I was meeting people like Lee who didnt at all seem part of this modern world and this moment in time - the world of petty aggravations and obligations and boundaries, a time of bored cynicism - because how they lived and what they lived for was so optimistic. They sincerely loved something, trusted in the perfectibility of some living thing, lived for a myth about themselves and the idea of adventure, were convinced that certain things were really worth dying for, believed that they could make their lives into whatever they dreamed." - Author: Susan Orlean

Quotes About Whispers In The Wind

"You told me trees could speak and the only reason one heard silence in the forestwas that they had all been born knowing different languages.That night I went into the forestto bury dictionaries under roots,so many books in so many tonguesas to insure speech.and now this very moment,the forest seems alivewith whispers and murmurs and rumblings of soundwind-rushed into my ears.I do not speak any languagethat crosses the silence around mebut how soothing to knowthat the yearning and grasping embodiedin trees convoluted and startling shapesis finally being fulfilledin their wind shouts to each other.Yet we who both speak Englishand have since we were bornare moving ever farther aparteven as branch tips touch." - Author: Carol Goodman

Quotes About Bettering The World

"I know the world seems terrifying right now and the future seems bleak. Just remember human beings have always managed to find the greatest strength within themselves during the darkest hours. When faced with the worst horrors the world has to offer, a person either cracks and succumbs to ugliness, or they salvage the inner core of who they are and fight to right wrongs. Never Let hatred, fear, and ignorance get the best of you. Keep bettering yourself so you can make the world around you better, for nothing can improve without the brightest, bravest, kindest, and most imaginative individuals rising above the chaos." - Author: Cat Winters

Quotes About Friends True Colors

"Friends: Its not the quantity, but the quality that matters. You will meet a lot of people throughout your life, not everyone will be your friend. Thats ok. Youll know when you meet a true friend.

The inside is where you find their quality." - Author: Alison G. Bailey

"Putting my hands on my hips, I sighed. "Okay, heres what were going to do.

And then Im going to talk to them.""Talk to them?" the Light Queen asked."Yes," I said, trying to compose a poem on her beauty comparing her to the light of the dawn, to the rays of sunlight piercing clouds after a thunderstorm, to . . . Evelyn. I shook my head, trying to clear it. "Gosh, cant you at least try to turn it down? Anyway. Were going to talk to them. If theyre anything like your court, a lot of them probably think their queen is a freaking idiot."The Light Queens side, white eyebrows rose like a question mark." - Author: Kiersten White

Quotes About Greatest Moments In Life

"The Hour-Hand of Life --- Life consists of rare, isolated moments of the greatest significance, and of innumerably many intervals, during which at best the silhouettes of those moments hover about us. Love, springtime, every beautiful melody, mountains, the moon, the sea – all these speak completely to the heart but once, if in fact they ever do get a chance to speak completely. For many men do not have those moments at all, and are themselves intervals and intermissions in the symphony of real life." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
