Jo Baker Quotes

"It was not that long ago that dinner had meant swallowing down whatever you could get your filthy hands on. . . Dinner meant something different here. It meant half a days work for two women. It mean polished crystal and silver, it meant a change of dress for the diners and a special suit of clothes for the servants to serve it up in. Here, dinner meant delay; it meant extending, with all the complexities of preparation and all those rituals of civility, the gap between hunger and its satisfaction. Here, now, it seemed that hunger itself might be relished, because its cessation was guaranteed; there always was - there always would be - meat and vegetables and dumplings and cakes and pies and plates and forks and pleases and thank yous, and endless plates of bread and butter."

Michael Gruber Quotes

"There are life events that can destroy the personality, which is a lot more fragile than most people imagine, constructed as it is from bits provided by others in the most haphazard way. People can be torn down to the core, "shattered," as the expression goes, and then they seek sleep. And dreams, which provide the ground for the construction of a new and more integrated self. Providing theres a core, and providing theyre willing to do the work."

Jamie Bamber Quotes

"Back in the Eighties, Id buy the biggest Benetton jumper I could find and would wear it long-sleeved, hanging off my shoulders, with a varsity jacket and a baseball cap on back to front with a quiff. I was the smallest boy in my class, and I looked like a reject from New Kids On The Block. Terrible."

John Geddes Quotes

"...writers, like priests, should have compassion...and a sensitivity to pain..."

Jacques Rigaut Quotes

"Mientras no haya superado el gusto al placer, seré sensible al vértigo del suicidio."

Vilem Flusser Quotes

"The task of a philosophy of photography is to reflect upon this possibility of freedom - and thus its significance - in a world dominated by apparatuses; to reflect upon the way in which, despite everything, it is possible for human beings to give significance to their lives in the face of the chance necessity of death. Such a philosophy is necessary because it is the only form of revolution left open to us."

Carre Otis Quotes

"I think that we cant deny the publics want for balancing out the images that are out there depicting women. Not all of us are 17 and a size two."

Elissa Schappell Quotes

"Dont be a fool, there is no such thing as just a girl."

Steven K Scott Quotes

"A VISION is a precise, clearly defined goal with a detailed plan and timetable for achieving that goal."

Sophie Littlefield Quotes

"...thats the true enemy of the future. Ignorance. Indifference. Failure to adapt."

Quotes About Brew

"Now, now," my father said. "Lets just get the bags."This was typical. My father, the lone male in our estrogen-heavy household, had always dealt with any kind of emotional situation or conflict by doing something concrete and specific. Discussion of cramps and heavy flow at the breakfast table? He was up and out the door to change oil on one of our cars. Coming home in tears for reasons you just didnt want to discuss? Hed go make you a grilled cheese, which hed probably end up eating. Family crisis brewing in a public place? Bags. Get the bags." - Author: Sarah Dessen

Quotes About Besmrtnost

"Tupo navikavanje, onošto je maleno i nisko, ispunjavajući sve kutove sveta, kao težak zemni vazduh dimeći se oko svega što je veliko, ometajući, obmanjujući, ublažavajući, gušeći, otežava put kojim ono što je veliko ima da ide ka besmrtnosti. Taj put, međutim, vodi kroz ljudske mozgove! Kroz mozgove zastrašenih i kratkovečnih životinja koje se stalno iznova pojavljuju radi istih nevolja i s naporom neznatno vreme odbijaju od sebe propast. Jer, one u prvom redu hoće samo jedno: da žive po svaku cenu. Ko bi kod njih naslutio onu tešku trku lučonoša monumentalne istorije zahvaljujući kojoj ono što je veliko dalje živi!" - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Grail

"His very first story, he told me as he was dying, was set in Camelot, the court of King Arthur in Britain: Merlin the Court Magician casts a spell that allows him to equip the Knights of the Round Table with Thompson submachine guns and drums of .45-caliber dumdums. Sir Galahad, the purest in heart and mind, familiarizes himself with this new virtue-compelling appliance. While doing so, he puts a slug through the Holy Grail and makes a Swiss cheese of Queen Guinevere." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

He stared at Shogo and realized that Noriko was holding her breath.Shogo said, "I was a student in Third Year Class C, Second District, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture." He added, "I survived the Program held in Hyogo Prefecture last year." - Author: Koushun Takami

Quotes About Breaking Up With A Loved One

"I hate it, all of this," I screamed, my voice breaking. "I even hate him, even him." A huge sob came up from my chest.And I did, right then. I hated you for everything; for making me feel so helpless everywhere I went, for making me lose control. I hated you for all the emotions in my head, for the confusion... for the way I was suddenly doubting everything. I hated you for turning my life upside down and then smashing it into shards. I hated you for making me stand with a whirring fan in my hand, screaming at my mum. But I hated you for something else, too. Right then, and at every moment since youd left me, all I could think about was you. I wanted you in that apartment. I wanted your arms around me, your face close to mine. I wanted your smell. And I knew I couldnt-shouldnt-have it. Thats what I hated most. The uncertainty of you. Youd kidnapped me, put my life in danger... but I loved you, too. Or thought I did. None of it made sense." - Author: Lucy Christopher

Quotes About Schmuck

"A guy cant be friends with a woman hes actively attracted to. Not really. Because at some point his dick will take over. Itll walk like him and talk like him, but—like one of the poor schmucks infected by those freaky face-sucking things in Alien—it wont be him. And from that point on, every move, every gesture will be geared toward accomplishing the dicks goal. Which sure as shit wont have anything to do with friendship." - Author: Emma Chase

Quotes About Baton Twirling

"New Rule: Stop asking Miss USA contestants if they believe in evolution. Its not their field. Its like asking Stephen Hawking if he believes in hair scrunchies.

If I cared about the uninformed opinions of some ditsy beauty queen, Id join the Tea Party." - Author: Bill Maher
