Rebecca Solnit Quotes

"Hope is not a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch, feeling lucky. It is an axe you break down doors with in an emergency. Hope should shove you out the door, because it will take everything you have to steer the future away from endless war, from the annihilation of the earths treasures and the grinding down of the poor and marginal... To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable."

Anne Bartlett Quotes

"To make a lacy texture of holes and fills, turn around and purl. Pearl is also a kind of colour. Colours are all the colours of the rainbow and the colours between the rainbow colours between. I can never get indigo. Year after year, I wait for indigo, but even when the fashion is navy, you never get indigo, the glow, the long slow glow of indigo in the high night sky."

Quotes About Fiinta

"Iubirea nascuta din frumusetea adevarata nu era pentru mine - n-aveam nimic in comun cu asa ceva. [...] insa o astfel de iubire, trezita cu sfiala la viata dupa o atat de indelungata cunoastere, calita in flacara suferintei, pecetluita de consecventa, consolidata de focul pur si dainuitor al afectiunii, supusa de ratiune la toate incercarile intelectului si, in cele din urma, forjata prin insasi viata ei la aceasta desavarsire fara pata, aceasta iubire care dispretuieste pasiunea, frenezia si delirul ei si stingerea ei atat de grabnica, in iubirea aceasta crezusem cu toata fiinta mea." - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About No Such Thing As Perfection

"My whole life I wanted to be normal. Everybody knows theres no such thing as normal. There is no black-and-white definition of normal. Normal is subjective. Theres only messy, inconsistant, silly, hopeful version of how we feel most at home in our own lives. But when I think about what I have, what I strived to reach my whole life, its not the biggest or best or easiest or prettiest or most anything. Its not the Manor or the laundry closet. Not the multi-million dollar inheritance or the poorhouse. Its not superstardom or unemployment. Its family and love and safety. Its bravery and hope. Its work and laughter and imperfection. Its my normal." - Author: Tori Spelling

Quotes About Border Collies

"She lived upstairs in the farmhouse; guests and visitors occupied the B&B rooms downstairs. She kept crates tucked all over the house, in which herding dogs-border collies and shepherds-slept while waiting to work, exercise, or play. These working dogs, Id come to learn, led lives very different from my dogs. Carolyn let them out several times a day to exercise and eliminate, but generally, they were out of crates only to train or herd sheep. While they were out, Carolyn tossed a cup of kibble into their crates for them to eat when they returned. I asked her once if she left the lights on for the dogs when she went out, and she looked at me curiously. "Why? They dont read... Still, they were everywhere. If you bumped into a sofa it might growl or thump. Some of her crew were puppies; some were strange rescue dogs." - Author: Jon Katz
