Claire Garber Quotes

"Im not sure if youve noticed this yet, but Jenny Sullivan likes to overuse peoples first names. Its a technique she read about in a book called Own It - Take Life By The Bollocks. She once said my name so many times I disconnected from it entirely."

Melissa Checker Quotes

"Neither the cat nor I missed you while you were gone. Its worse than that. We danced the visitor-gone dance, flinging our feet (and paws) with particular glee. You remember the dance - the one you do after shutting the door behind a difficult visitor (like a family member)? You hold your breath for 120 seconds then deadbolt the door, race to the bed, leap on to it and jump, twirl, bell-kick and prance, singing all the while, "shes go-onnne, shes gooo-oonne."

Maximilien De Robespierre Quotes

"The most extravagant idea that can be born in the head of a political thinker is to believe that it suffices for people to enter, weapons in hand, among a foreign people and expect to have its laws and constitution embraced. No one loves armed missionaries; the first lesson of nature and prudence is to repulse them as enemies."

Quotes About Foul

"There was a loud shuffling above. A line of redcoats took their position at the edge of the ravine and aimed down at the rebels. "Present!" the British officer screamed to his men. "Present!" yelled the American officer. His men brought the butts of their muskets up to their shoulders and sighted down the long barrels, ready to shoot and kill. I pressed my face into the earth, unable to plan a course of escape. My mind would not be mastered and thought only of the wretched, lying, foul, silly girl who was the cause of everything. I thought of Isabel and I missed her. "FIRE!" - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Quotes About Being Stung

"I dont want to be a widow, I dont want Michael Bayning, and I dont want you to joke about such things, you tactless clodpole!"As all three of them stared at her openmouthed, Poppy leapt up and stalked away, her hands drawn into fists.Bewildered by the immediate force of her fury—it was like being stung by a butterfly—Harry stared after her dumbly. After a moment, he asked the first coherent thought that came to him. "Did she just say she doesnt want Bayning?""Yes," Win said, a smile hovering on her lips. "Thats what she said. Go after her, Harry."Every cell in Harrys body longed to comply. Except that he had the feeling of standing on the edge of a cliff, with one ill-chosen word likely to send him over. He gave Poppys sister a desperate glance. "What should I say?""Be honest with her about your feelings," Win suggested.A frown settled on Harrys face as he considered that.

Quotes About Phoenix Arizona

"I imagined the lies the valedictorian was telling them right now. About the exciting future that lies ahead. I wish shed tell them the truth: Half of you have gone as far in life as youre ever going to. Look around. Its all downhill from here. The rest of us will go a bit further, a steady job, a trip to Hawaii, or a move to Phoenix, Arizona, but out of fifteen hundred how many will do anything truly worthwhile, write a play, paint a painting that will hang in a gallery, find a cure for herpes? Two of us, maybe three? And how many will find true love? About the same. And enlightenment? Maybe one. The rest of us will make compromises, find excuses, someone or something to blame, and hold that over our hearts like a pendant on a chain." - Author: Janet Fitch

Quotes About Pogroms

"Consideremos la larga historia de las actividades inspiradas por el fervor moral: los sacrificios humanos, las persecuciones de herejes, las cazas de brujas, los pogroms, hasta que se llega al exterminio en gran escala por medio de gases venenosos, que al menos uno de los colegas episcopales del doctor Barnes parece patrocinar, ya que sostiene que el pacifismo es anticristiano. ¿Son estas abominaciones, y las doctrinas éticas que las inspiran, realmente prueba de un Creador inteligente? ¿Y podemos realmente desear que los hombres que las practicaron vivan eternamente? El mundo en que vivimos puede ser entendido como resultado de la confusión y el accidente; pero, si es el resultado de un propósito deliberado, el propósito tiene que haber sido el de un demonio. Por mi parte, encuentro el accidente una hipótesis menos penosa y más verosímil." - Author: Bertrand Russell

Quotes About Indian Suits

"Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant Indian Peoples League, and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie?" - Author: Gideon Haigh
