"We are so dull that we rarely realize how much history lies hidden in marriage, and how the one word spoken by the bride makes all the difference between cattle-raising and a nations good breeding."

Prerna Varma Quotes

"Life is just like the game of poker, you never know what cards you will get. Sitting against the people, you can either win with the king or live on a joker. Many times in life you are forced to play the blind bet, and achieve overwhelming success, with loads of cash in your pocket or you may reach disastrous conclusions, losing everything you have got.Thats the reason I love playing poker."

Steve Almond Quotes

"Our job, then, is two-fold: to focus on our own failings as writers. But also to speak more forcefully as advocates for literature. Books are a powerful antidote for loneliness, for the moral purposelessness of the leisure class. Its our job to convince the 95 percent of people who dont read books, who instead medicate themselves in front of screens, that literary art isnt some esoteric tradition, but a direct path to meaning, to an understanding of the terror that lives beneath our consumptive ennui."

Sam Farr Quotes

Alyssa Reyans Quotes

"The doctors words made me understand what happened to me was a dark, evil, and shameful secret, and by association I too was dark, evil, and shameful. While it may not have been their intention, this was the message my clouded mind received. To escape the confines of the hospital, I once again disassociated myself from my emotions and numbed myself to the pain ravaging my body and mind. I acted as if nothing was wrong and went back to performing the necessary motions to get me from one day to the next. I existed but I did not live."

Westminster Shorter Catechism Quotes

"The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever"

Quotes About Feeling Cornered

"Why is someone telling you they loved you so awful? I ask.‘Its not just that he told me he loved me, its more about he expected me to say it back. I dont like feeling cornered into saying stuff I dont feel and doing stuff I dont want to do. And anyway, love at our age is ridiculous, Renee says, tapping her toe in a puddle of water.Putting it like that makes more sense. People live whole lives together pretending to be in love. I guess Mum and Dad did that for most of their relationship. Then they realised they couldnt pretend any more but they were stuck with each other, and look where that got them. Ive never really thought about love being such a big deal before. I just presumed that if someone was kind enough to say it to me, I would be kind enough to say it back, but maybe you shouldnt just say ‘I love you. You have to mean it." - Author: Dawn OPorter

"Anyway, now she thinks of Estha and Rahel as Them, because, separately, the two of them are no longer what They were or ever thought They would be.Ever.Their lives have a size and a shape now. Estha has his and Rahel hers.Edges, Borders, Boundaries, Brinks and Limits have appeared like a team of trolls on their separate horizons. Short creatures with long shadows, patrolling the Blurry End. Gentle half-moons have gathered under their eyes and they are as old as Ammu was when she died." - Author: Arundhati Roy

Quotes About Conversation And Love

"Imagine for a moment that we are nothing but the product of billions of years of molecules coming together and ratcheting up through natural selection, that we are composed only of highways of fluids and chemicals sliding along roadways within billions of dancing cells, that trillions of synaptic conversations hum in parallel, that this vast egglike fabric of micron-thin circuitry runs algorithms undreamt of in modern science, and that these neural programs give rise to our decision making, loves, desires, fears, and aspirations. To me, that understanding would be a numinous experience, better than anything ever proposed in anyones holy text." - Author: David Eagleman

Quotes About Injustices

"Yes, nitroglycerin," Simoun repeated slowly, with a frigid smile, staring at the glass flask with delight. "Its more than nitroglycerin, however. Its a concentration of tears, compressed, hatred, injustices, offenses. This is the supreme arbiter of weakness, force against force, violence against violence . . . a moment ago I was hesitating, but then you arrived and convinced me. Tonight those most dangerous of tyrants who have hidden behind God and the state, whose abuses remain unpunished because no one can take them to task. Tonight, the Philippines will hear an explosion that will convert into rubble the infamous monument whose rottenness I helped bring about." - Author: José Rizal
