Quotes About Being Sorry For Hurting The One You Love

"Hardy studied me for another long moment. A smile curled one corner of his mouth. I can give you some pointers. Lord knows you couldnt get any worse. Mexicans cant play basketball, I said. I should be given a waiver because of my heritage. Without taking his eyes from mine, he reached for the ball and dribbled a few times. Smoothly he turned and executed a perfect jump shot. It was a show-off move, looking all the better for being done in a cowboy hat, and I had to laugh as Hardy glanced at me with an expectant grin. Am I supposed to praise you now? I asked. He retrieved the ball and dribbled slowly around me. Yeah, now would be a good time. That was awesome.-Hardy and Liberty" - Author: Lisa Kleypas

Quotes About Belt Buckles

"During the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, winds were past 200 miles per house and people caught outside were sandblasted to death. Rescue workers found nothing but their shoes and belt buckles… In 1938, the hurricane put downtown Providence, Rhode Island, under 10 feet of ocean. The waves generated by that storm were so huge that they literally shook the earth; seismographs in Alaska picked up their impact 5,000 miles away." - Author: Sebastian Junger

Quotes About Ashamed

"Chloe didnt have all the answers, either. I knew that now. But she had known something all along that I hadnt: that being ashamed of what you want or how you feel is pointless, and letting anyone else make you feel ashamed is a waste.

And I wasnt sure what I wanted, but I didnt want to make any decisions until I knew. And I was proud of that." - Author: Kody Keplinger

Quotes About Rare Flowers

"Here: an exercise in choice. Your choice. One of these tales is true.She lived through the war. In 1959 she came to America. She now lives in a condo in Miami, a tiny French woman with white hair, with a daughter and a grand-daughter. She keeps herself to herself and smiles rarely, as if the weight of memory keeps her from finding joy.Or thats a lie. Actually the Gestapo picked her up during a border crossing in 1943, and they left her in a meadow. First she dug her own grave, then a single bullet to the back of the skull.Her last thought, before that bullet, was that she was four months pregnant, and that if we do not fight to create a future there will be no future for any of us.There is an old woman in Miami who wakes, confused, from a dream of the wind blowing the wildflowers in a meadow.There are bones untouched beneath the warm French earth which dream of a daughters wedding. Good wine is drunk. The only tears shed are happy ones." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Driving

"Wilbur Larch knew that freedom was an orphans most dangerous illusion, and when he finally heard from Homer, he scanned the oddly formal letter, which was disappointing in its lack of detail.

But the right song with the right voice can be a weapon; anyone whos listened to music through headphones while riding the subway or plowing angrily through a rush-hour sidewalk knows how it can and separate you from them, allows you to say to the teeming masses that you are this and they are that." - Author: Dave Eggers

Quotes About A Bride On Her Wedding Day

"[she used to say that] each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world – like a bride wears on her wedding day—except this kind of veil is invisible. we walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. the world is kind of blurry. we like it that way. but sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments – like theres a wind blowing it from our faces – and when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. we see all the beauty and cruelty and sadness and love, but mostly we are happy not to. some people learn to lift the veils themselves. then they dont have to depend on the wind anymore. ...its just her way of saying that most of the time people get distracted by little stuff, and ignore the big stuff." - Author: Rebecca Stead
