"I made a mistake and it was forgiven, but the damage done has been remarkable. Nothing comes easy after a typhoon cleared all property.

Because if this is the only way to prove how much I love you, then I will build a town for you..."

Nancy A Collins Quotes

"Thats when his job got tough. Since that night, his shift had yet to go by without one of the inmates waking up with the night horrors. They all claimed the woman in Room 7 walked into their dreams. They couldnt – or wouldnt – elaborate on the details. Claude described the dreams to Dr. Morial, the wards on-call psychiatrist. Morial asked him if he liked his job. Claude let it drop. Life was complicated enough without trying to figure out why a bunch of loonies should fixate on a fellow inmate they had never seen. Or how they could describe her so well."

Quotes About Admitting Defeat

"When I arrived at the house in the suburbs that night I seriously contemplated suicide for the first time in my life. But as I thought about it, the idea became exceedingly tiresome, and I finally decided it would be a ludicrous business. I had an inherent dislike of admitting defeat. Moreover, I told myself, theres no need for me to take such decisive action myself, not when Im surrounded by such a bountiful harvest of death—death in an air raid, death at ones post of duty, death in the military service, death on the battlefield, death from being run over, death from disease—surely my name has already been entered in the list for one of these: a criminal who has been sentenced to death does not commit suicide. No—no matter how I considered, the season was not auspicious for suicide. Instead I was waiting for something to do me the favor of killing me. And this, in the final analysis, is the same as to say that I was waiting for something to do me the favor of keeping me alive." - Author: Yukio Mishima

"On the one hand we are called to play the good Samaritan on lifes roadside; but that will be only an initial act.

Quotes About Illusions In Love

"The Kiss: Intimate with YouMy taste, my palettes, and honey suckles are sweet.You give me creative illusions.Its the realism of you.Sometimes rough. Yet, you evade my every smoothest thought.From head to toe, I see you in black and white. Your curves, your lines, oh you give me great endeavors. You peek my interest. My volume rises and nudity springs within the two sexes, and oh what the eye perceives. The contour, the edge, and flowing rhythmic lines, and look at that pretty smooth silky skin. We live rendering our thoughts of each other.I prefer the legs down, the ring of bone, and the tip of your foot down in perspective. You are ideal to me.I press in with my smoothing stick, oh what imagination.Landmarks! Mark that spot.The kiss of figure drawing.I love you, HB, 4B, and 6B" - Author: Edna Stewart
