Madeline Claire Franklin Quotes

"But memories were fragile and not to be trusted. They were a weight that Faolin did not need to carry with him when he set out that morning. Things of the past, like the fragile boy he had been, had no place on a mans journey towards his future."

Donella H Meadows Quotes

"People dont need enormous cars; they need admiration and respect. They dont need a constant stream of new clothes; they need to feel that others consider them to be attractive, and they need excitement and variety and beauty. People dont need electronic entertainment; they need something interesting to occupy their minds and emotions. And so forth. Trying to fill real but nonmaterial needs-for identity, community, self-esteem, challenge, love, joy-with material things is to set up an unquenchable appetite for false solutions to never-satisfied longings. A society that allows itself to admit and articulate its nonmaterial human needs, and to find nonmaterial ways to satisfy them, world require much lower material and energy throughputs and would provide much higher levels of human fulfillment."

SR Grey Quotes

"He kisses me hard, tells me between frenzied kisses, `You feel so good, beautiful, beautiful, sweet girl. Feel how much I want you. He circles his hips against mine. `I want you like this all the fucking time."

Ken Petti Quotes

"Every flower blooms in its own time."

Hermann Kolbe Quotes

"The weeds of a seemingly learned and brilliant but actually trivial and empty philosophy of Nature which, after having been replaced some 50 years ago by the exact sciences, is now once more dug up by pseudo scientists from the lumber room of human fallacies, and like a trollop, newly attired in elegant dress and make-up, is smuggled into respectable company, to which she does not belong."

JL Bryanyan Quotes

"I love you, Esmeralda," he said."I love you, too," she whispered back, and he couldnt help smiling. At least he would die with those words in his ears."

Lesley Stahl Quotes

"I dont know of anybodys political bias at CBS News. We try very hard to get any opinion that we have out of our stories, and most of our stories are balanced."

Robert Morrissette Quotes

"A credit card allows you transcend time. For it allows you to put off until tomorrow what you bought today, while you are still paying what you bought yesterday."

Karan Johar Quotes

"I grew up as the only child, and we did not have a large family. So for me and my mother, our friends tend to become our family."

Quotes About Tirades

"With copious evidence ranging from Platos haughtiness to Beethovens tirades, we may conclude that the most brilliant people of history tend to be a prickly lot." - Author: Stephen Jay Gould

Quotes About Happiness And Contentment

"Tradition whispers that in the sky is a bird, blue as the sky itself, which brings to its finders happiness. But everyone cannot see it; for mortal eyes are prone to be blinded by the glitter of wealth, fame, and position, and deceived by the mocking Will-o-Wisp of empty honors. But for the fortunate ones who seek with open eyes and hearts, with the artlessness, simplicity, and faith which are richest in childhood, there is an undying promise; and to them the Blue Bird lives and carols, a rejoicing symbol of Happiness and Contentment unto the end." - Author: Venice J. Bloodworth

Quotes About Conviction

"Orthodox Marxism, therefore, does not imply the uncritical acceptance of the results of Marxs investigations. It is not the ‘belief in this or that thesis, nor the exegesis of a ‘sacred book. On the contrary, orthodoxy refers exclusively to method. It is the scientific conviction that dialectical materialism is the road to truth and that its methods can be developed, expanded and deepened only along the lines laid down by its founders. It is the conviction, moreover, that all attempts to surpass or ‘improve it have led and must lead to over-simplification, triviality and eclecticism." - Author: György Lukács

Quotes About Build Up

"I saw huge buildings rise up faint and fair, and pass like dreams." - Author: H.G. Wells

Quotes About Famous Buildings

"But I do remember this thing that this famous rabbi wrote once about how Christians build cathedrals, these gorgeous impressive structures, but Jews, with a long history of watching their buildings get destroyed, build their cathedrals in time. The High Holidays. Shabbat. Cathedrals carved out of time that can never be worn down. I know youre no Jew but I kind of think thats what you did with your summer down here." - Author: Dana Reinhardt

Quotes About Empire State

"Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf any of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World; we ride railroad tracks that do not follow faithfully the curvature of the earth, for the train would jump the tracks if they were level. We pass skyscrapers whose stress and strain are figured to the millionth of an inch, yet take for granted that the Empire State Building actually sways constantly many feet. If we are religiously inclined, we take going to the church of our choice for granted; if we are non believers, we give no second thought to the fact that we do not have to attend religious services if we do not choose. Yet the very privilege of non-belief represents the victory of philosophy; otherwise the non-churchgoer would still face the lions or the stake." - Author: Kahlil Gibran

Quotes About Regret

"Football spectators appreciate a bit of loyalty, and were seeing that less and less. There are echelons of football, as in society, where some players are clearly mercenaries. I regret in a way that somehow the local identification, the local bonding between the community and its football team has been commercialised to such an extent." - Author: Vincent Nichols

Quotes About The Feminine Body

"If art is not to be life-enhancing, what is it to be? Half the world is feminine--why is there resentment at a female-oriented art? Nobody asks The Tale of Genji to be masculine! Women certainly learn a lot from books oriented toward a masculine world. Why is not the reverse also true? Or are men really so afraid of womens creativity (because they are not themselves at the center of creation, cannot bear children) that a woman writer of genius evokes murderous rage, must be brushed aside with a sneer as irrelevant?" - Author: May Sarton

Quotes About Being Startled

"Stupid deer," I said, embarrassed about being startled. "We need a ladder.""I think theyre easier to shoot with a rifle.""Im not talking about the deer," I said, hitting Milo on the back of his shoulder. "We need a ladder to look over the wall.""Or a catapult," Milo said seriously." - Author: Obert Skye

Quotes About Stomach Pain

"Compassion is a wonderful thing. Its what one feels when one looks at a squashed caterpillar. An elevating experience. One can let oneself go and spread--you know, like taking a girdle off. You dont have to hold your stomach, your heart or your spirit up--when you feel compassion. All you have to do is look down. Its much easier. When you look up, you get a pain in the neck. Compassion is the greatest virtue. It justifies suffering. Theres got to be suffering in the world, else how would we be virtuous and feel compassion?... Oh, it has an antithesis--but such a hard, demanding one... Admiration, Mrs. Jones, admiration. But that takes more than a girdle... So I say that anyone for whom we cant feel sorry is a vicious person. Like Howard Roark." - Author: Ayn Rand
