Hiromi Goto Quotes

"A child isnt born bitter. I point no fingers as to who tainted the clean, pure pool of my childhood. Lets just say that when I realized that I didnt want to grow up, the damage was already done. Knowing that being grown up was no swell place to be means that you are grown up enough to notice. And you cant go back from there. You have to forge another route, draw your own map."

Karen Swallow Prior Quotes

"What good literature can do and does do—far greater than any importation of morality—is touch the human soul."

Margie Warrell Quotes

"Your "everybody" probably represents even a smaller proportion of the population than your Rolodex. Psychologists have documented that our typical everybody— to which they refer as the "generalized other"—is usually a collection of about five or six people."

Quotes About Word Of God

"Id like to suggest that when we search for truth, we search among those books and in those places where truth is most likely to be found. Ive often referred to a simple couplet: "You do not find truth groveling through error. You find truth by searching the holy word of God." There are those who for direction and inspiration turn to the philosophies of man. There a smattering of truth may be found, but not the entire spectrum. Sometimes the truth of such philosophies is based upon a shallow foundation. . . . We need to turn to the truth of God." - Author: Thomas S. Monson

Quotes About Funny Death

"Funny how Boris wasnt the monster who came alive in her scariest night terrors. No, the title of Nightmare King belonged to the male looming like a death sentence in front of her, a gorgeous sandy-haired vampire in worn, bloodstained jeans and a loaded weapons harness beneath a long leather coat. A male named Riker who, twenty years ago, had killed Terese. His own mate." - Author: Larissa Ione

Quotes About Retiring

Quotes About Not Being The Same Girl

"Till now, I could not have supposed it possible to be mistaken as to a girls being out or not. A girl not out, has always the same sort of dress: a close bonnet, for instance; looks very demure, and never says a word. You may smile, but it is so, I assure you; and except that it is sometimes carried a little too far, it is all very proper. Girls should be quiet and modest. The most objectionable part is, that the alteration of manners on being introduced into company is frequently too sudden. They sometimes pass in such very little time from reserve to quite the opposite - to confidence! That is the faulty part of the present system." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Inherit The Wind

"Displaced Persons SongIf you see a train this evening,Far away, against the sky,Lie down in your woolen blanket,Sleep and let the train go by.Trains have called us, every midnight,From a thousand miles away,Trains that pass through empty cities,Trains that have no place to stay.No one drives the locomotive,No one tends the staring light,Trains have never needed riders,Trains belong to bitter night.Railway stations stand deserted,Rights-of-way lie clear and cold,What we left them, trains inherit,Trains go on, and we grow old.Let them cry like cheated lovers,Let their cries find only wind,Trains are meant for night and ruin,And we are meant for song and sin." - Author: Thomas Pynchon

Quotes About Teatro

"Depose sul tavolo la cartella in cui teneva i risguardi da inserire prima del frontespizio e prese a sfogliarli con aria assente. «Ogni libro dovrebbe cominciare con una pagina vuota» aveva detto una volta a Meggie. «Meglio se scura: rosso scuro, blu scuro, a seconda del colore della copertina. Quando apri il libro, è come se fossi a teatro. Il sipario copre il palcoscenico. Tu lo tiri da parte e ha inizio la rappresentazione.»" - Author: Cornelia Funke

Quotes About Celebrity Status

"I think its very dangerous, the idea of celebrity - you have to be constantly controversial to maintain the status of celebrity. Reality TV is the death of entertainment - its just mindless TV but popular because of its voyeuristic nature, and people are very voyeuristic." - Author: David Suchet

Quotes About Conflict And Fear

"My psycho-analytic work has convinced me that when in the babys mind the conflicts between love and hate arise, and the fears of losing the loved one become active, a very important step is made in development." - Author: Melanie Klein
