Susan Hubbard Quotes

"He said that academia reminded him of a badly run circus. The faculty members were like underfed animals -- weary of their cages, which were never large enough to begin with -- and they responded sluggishly to the whip. The trapeze artists fell with monotonous regularity into poorly strung nets. The clowns looked hungry. The tent leaked. The crowd was inattentive, shouting incoherently at inappropriate moments. And when the show was over, no one cheered."

"Anon from the castle wallsThe crescent banner falls,And the crowd beholds instead,Like a portent in the sky,Iskanders banner fly,The Black Eagle with double head;And a shout ascends on high,For mens souls are tired of the Turks,And their wicked ways and works,That have made of Ak-HissarA city of the plague;And the loud, exultant cryThat echoes wide and farIs: "Long live Scanderbeg!" - Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Quotes About Gods Masterpiece

"...when the Gods finished creating woman, they stood back and looked at what theyd done. They had given her a body strong enough to run a marathon, a mind fast enough to do six things at once, a heart big enough to love even while it was breaking, hands that could paint a masterpiece or feed a family or write a symphony. And they were afraid, because they saw that what they made was stronger than they were. They knew they had to create a secret weapon, one thing they could use to destroy her. So they gave her children." - Author: Donna Ball

Quotes About Cowards

"You fight them, his father had said. You dont trust them. His father had been right. And his father had been ready. Rabatians were cowards and deceivers, they should have scattered when their duplicitous attack met the full force of the Akielon army. But for some reason they hadnt fallen at the first sign of a real fight, they had stood firm, and shown metal, and, for hour upon hour, they had fought, until the Akielon lines had begun to slip and falter.And their general wasnt the king, it was the twenty-five year old prince, holding the field. Father, I can take him, hed said.Then go, his father had said, and bringus back victory." - Author: C.S. Pacat

As a nation, weve been through too many fights to preserve our rights of free thought to let them go just because some prude with a highlighter doesnt approve of them."[Bangor Daily News, Guest Column of March 20, 1992]" - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Credo

"Il problema principale era che non mi piace la gente, e in particolare non mi piacciono i miei coetanei, cioè quelli che popolano luniversità. Ci andrei volentieri se ci studiassero persone più grandi. Non sono uno psicopatico (anche se non credo che gli psicopatici si definiscano tali), è solo che non mi diverto a stare con gli altri. Le persone, almeno per quel che ho visto fino adesso, non si dicono granché di interessante. Parlano delle loro vite, e le loro vite non sono interessanti. Quindi mi secco. Secondo me bisognerebbe parlare solo se si ha da dire qualcosa di interessante o di necessario." - Author: Peter Cameron

Quotes About News Channels

"When a man died, there had to be blame. Jimmy Cross understood this. You could blame the war, You could blame the idiots who made the war. You could blame Kiowa for going to it. You could blame the rain. You could blame the river. You could blame the field, the mud, the climate. You could blame the enemy. You could blame the mortar rounds. You could blame people who were too lazy to read a newspaper, who were bored by the daily body counts, who switched channels at the mention of politics. You could blame whole nations. You could blame God. You could blame the munitions makers or Karl Marx or a trick of fate of an old man in Omaha who forgot to vote." - Author: Tim OBrien

Quotes About Waste

"Crying had made her want a shoulder on which to rest her head, arms to hold her. Shed wasted too many tears alone in her room, her garden, walking along the shore, praying for God to send her someone to share her sorrows along with her joys." - Author: Laurie Alice Eakes
