"Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lost"

Dave Davies Quotes

Daniel Burnham Quotes

"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir mens blood."

Kerry Cohen Quotes

"I begin to learn there are certain things I shouldnt tell her. Like when we meet boys at Dorrians and I give mine a blow job, or the time I messed around with a boy in the back near the bathrooms. Amy wants to be intimate with boys too, but to her this kind of conduct is slutty. I suppose it is. She, like most girls, including the Jennifers, has a different relationship to boys than I do. She engages in sexual acts with them if she wants, but from my vantage point it looks like she can take them or leave them if they are not just right. She considers whether she actually likes someone before she jumps into bed with him. She isnt wracked with anxiety when there arent any boys around. And she doesnt need them to live, which is what it feels like for me."

Frank Rich Quotes

"Up in the Air is not a political movie. It wont be mistaken for either a Michael Moore or Any Rand polemic on capitalism."

"She was staring at the low ceiling, and I had the feeling that there was another Severian there, the kind and even noble Severian who existed only in Dorcass mind. All of us, I suppose, when we think we are talking most intimately to someone else, are actually addressing an image we have of the person to whom we believe we speak." - Author: Gene Wolfe

Quotes About Pushes

"I kiss her and she finds the light switch and turns it off, and were just lit in Pepsi-can colors and its like weve finally found this other kind of conversation, this conversation in gestures and pulls and pushes and breaths and grasps and teases and glimmers and rubs and expectation." - Author: David Levithan

Quotes About Superstitious

"But neither Europe nor Africa can show any such desolation as America. The proudest, stubbornest, bitterest peasant of deserted Spain, the most primitive and superstitious Arab of the remotest oases, are a little more than kin and never less than kind at their worst; whereas in the United States one is almost always conscious of an instinctive lack of sympathy and understanding with even the most charming and cultured people." - Author: Aleister Crowley

Quotes About Brightness Of Light

"If thou indeed derive thy light from Heaven,Then, to the measure of that heaven-born light,Shine, Poet! in thy place, and be content: --The stars pre-eminent in magnitude,And they that from the zenith dart their beams,(Visible though they be to half the earth,Though half a sphere be conscious of their brightness)Are yet of no diviner origin,No purer essence, than the one that burns,Like an untended watch-fire on the ridgeOf some dark mountain; or than those which seemHumbly to hang, like twinkling winter lamps,Among the branches of the leafless trees.All are the undying offspring of one Sire:Then, to the measure of the light vouchsafed,Shine, Poet! in thy place, and be content." - Author: William Wordsworth
