Renate Linnenkoper Quotes

"As they gently lowered it into the earth, all stared silently at the coffin but one: a young woman of twenty-five who glanced absentmindedly into the distance where an unknown figure stood – watching, waiting, his face buried in the shadow of his hat. Whether by intuition or paranoia she could not tell, but the presence of the man troubled her and her eyes were fixed on his motionless body and would not stir. Tourists rarely came to a town as small and uneventful as theirs, let alone to visit a funeral where they did not introduce themselves and only beheld the spectacle from afar."

Tad Williams Quotes

"Whats the light of Heaven look like on earth? Like sunlight streaming through clouds in the tackiest garage sale painting you ever saw. Really, its so beautiful its embarrassing. No subtlety whatsoever."

Shilpa Agarwal Quotes

"If only certain things had been preventable, his life would have unfurled in front of him as intended, like a lush Oriental carpet. No surprises, no detours. Just a thick tapestry of days and nights that at the end of his time on earth, he could roll up and proudly claim as his own."

Bone is…difficult."She ran her hands through her hair, feeling nervous. Yeah, thats whats keeping me fromdismembering him, pulling a muscle as I cut through bone."

Christie Hodgen Quotes

"This was the lesson we kept learning over and over and over, the lesson our mother was best capable of teaching us. Love—whatever else it might or might not be—was fleeting. Love stormed into your life and occupied it, it took over every corner of your soul, made itself comfortable, made itself wanted, then treasured, then necessary, love did all of this and then it did next the only thing it had left to do, it retreated, it vanished, it left no trace of itself. Love was horrifying."

David Berman Quotes

Johann Baptist Metz Quotes

"No mi kršćani upućeni smo po središtu našega Creda - mučen pod Poncijem Pilatom - u povijest u kojoj je bilo razapinjanja i mučenja, u kojoj se plakalo i tako rijetko ljubilo. I nikakav od povijesti udaljeni mit, nikakav Platonovi idejni Bog, nikakva gnostička soteriologija i nikakav apstraktni govor o povijesnosti naše egzistencije ne mogu nam vratiti onu nedužnost koju smo u toj povijesti izgubili."

Dave Marsh Quotes

"Daltrey was by all accounts the toughest man in the Who; maybe the toughest man in London. Filled with blue collar attitude, he strutted around the stage, screaming out the rage of a century of Londons dead end lives, roaring like a young lion trapped in a decadent, dying England. Townsend wrote prettily, daydreaming foolishly individualistic dreams of artistic expression, but it was Rogers sledghammer voice that smashed the skulls of the enemy."

Quotes About Warren G Harding

"He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.(writing about US President Warren G. Harding)" - Author: H.L. Mencken

Quotes About Psalms

"Wait on the Lord" is a constant refrain in the Psalms, and it is a necessary word, for God often keeps us waiting. He is not in such a hurry as we are, and it is not his way to give more light on the future than we need for action in the present, or to guide us more than one step at a time. When in doubt, do nothing, but continue to wait on God. When action is needed, light will come." - Author: J.I. Packer

Quotes About Tavasz

"… elvesztette csodálatos irrealitásérzékét, s végül mindannyiuknak azt tanácsolta, hogy hagyják ott Macondót, felejtsék el mindazt, amit a világról és az emberi szívről tanított nekik, szarjanak Horatiusra, és bárhová kerüljenek is, mindig jusson eszükbe, hogy a múlt hazugság, hogy az emlékezet nem ismer visszautat, hogy minden régi tavasz visszavonhatatlanul elveszett, s hogy végső soron a legőrjöngőbb és legmakacsabb szerelem sem egyéb, mint tűnő igazság." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Amygdala

"The quest for seizing that amygdala moment, those crushing seconds of unbearable, incapacitating shock, seizing these moments and not letting them go, dragging them out for as long as is operationally necessary, that, said Sid, is the aim of the Bucha effect." - Author: Jon Ronson

Quotes About Sewing Stitching

"Miss West is never idle. Below, in the big after-room, she does her own laundering. Nor will she let the steward touch her fathers fine linen. In the main cabin she has installed a sewing-machine. All hand-stitching, and embroidering, and fancy work she does in the deck-chair beside me. She avers that she loves the sea and the atmosphere of sea-life, yet, verily, she has brought her home-things and land-things along with her--even to her pretty china for afternoon tea." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Shar

"The idea...that our professional military men and women train for years without knowing whether they will ever have to actually carry out their missions to the fullest extent of their abilities is the very heart of what service is all about. Heroes arent designated in advance. Everyone must always be ready to execute.In my experience, its always the greatest heroes who claim they never did anything beyond what any of their buddies would have done in the same situation. Our training and our culture breed that response into us all, no matter what war we were part of. You train yourself to a standard and thereby make yourself interchangeable with others who share the same standard. And that gives everyone an equal claim to the pride that goes with having served your country." - Author: Marcus Luttrell

Quotes About Liberalism And Conservatism

"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals — if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is." - Author: Ronald Reagan
