Quentin R Bufogle Quotes

"Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesnt return my phone calls; the itch Im unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; elevator music for a narcoleptic. Writing is the hope of lifting all boats by pissing in the ocean. Writing isnt something that makes me happy like a good cup of coffee. Its just something I do because not writing, as Ive found, is so much worse."

Randy Russell Quotes

"Mars knew that love wasnt all red-paper valentines and candy hearts. Love wasnt always joy. Love could be hot-blooded pain down to the bone. Sometimes love was despair. And sometimes love was wrong."

Mawde Royden Quotes

"Muhammad introduced the concept of such Glorious and Omnipotent God in Whose eyes all worldly systems are pieces of straw. Islamic equality of mankind is no fiction as it is in Christianity. No human mind has ever thought of such total freedom as established by Muhammad."

"Maybe the Americans should have brought baseballs instead of bombs."

Kevin Malarkey Quotes

"Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow. Awareness of others is a healthy antidote to this self-focus."

Henri Frederic Amiel Quotes

"Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart."

William H Armstrong Quotes

Quotes About Marriages Ending

"I read old novels. The reason is simple: I prefer proper endings. Marriages and deaths, noble sacrifices and miraculous restorations, tragic separations and unhoped-for reunions, great falls and dreams fulfilled; these, in my view, constitute an ending worth the wait. They should come after adventures, perils, dangers and dilemmas, and wind everything up nice and neatly. Endings like this are to be found more commonly in old novels than new ones, so I read old novels." - Author: Diane Setterfield

Quotes About The Flower Of Life

"Something he knew he had missed: the flower of life. But he thought of it now as a thing so unattainable and improbable that to have repined would have been like despairing because one had not drawn the first prize in a lottery." - Author: Edith Wharton

Quotes About Happen For A Reason

"But if Ive heard this saying once, Ive heard it a thousand times- everything happens for a reason. And possibly it does. I just havent found the reason that this all happened yet." - Author: Jerry Lawler

Quotes About Withered Tree

"He had black fingernails and drove a hearse. Everything about him cried out, Look at me, look at me, and when you looked at him, he would snap, Who the fuck are you looking at? If you subscribe to the idea that addiction is a disease, it is startling to see how many of these children- paranoid, anxious, bruised, tremulous, withered, in some cases psychotic - are seriously ill, slowly dying. Wed never allow such a scene if these kids had any other disease. They would be in a hospital, not on the streets." - Author: David Sheff

Quotes About Being A Mother And Wife

"Only a woman can carry in her body an eternal being which bears the very image of God. Only she is the recipient of the miracle of life. Only a woman can conceive and nurture this life using her own flesh and blood, and then deliver a living soul into the world. God has bestowed upon her alone a genuine miracle — the creation of life, and the fusing of an eternal soul with mortal flesh. This fact alone establishes the glory of motherhood.Despite the most creative plans of humanist scientists and lawmakers to redefine the sexes, no man will ever conceive and give birth to a child. The fruitful womb is a holy gift given by God to women alone. This is one reason why the office of wife and mother is the highest calling to which a woman can aspire.This is the reason why nations that fear the Lord esteem and protect mothers. They glory in the distinctions between men and women, and attempt to build cultures in which motherhood is honored and protected." - Author: Douglas W. Phillips

Quotes About Conversa

"Beside him a tiny elderly woman was leaning on a cane, studying him with curiosity. Since good manners seemed to require that he speak to her, Jon cast about for some sort of polite conversation pertinent to the occasion. "I hate funerals, dont you?" He said."I rather like them," she said smugly. "At my age, I regard each funeral I attend as a personal triumph, because I was not the guest of honor." - Author: Judith McNaught

Quotes About Interiority

"We have become victims of our own art. We touch people on the outsides of their bodies, and they us, but we cannot get to their insides and cannot reveal our insides to them. This is one of the great tragedies of our interiority-it is utterly personal and unrevealable. Often we want to say something unusually intimate to a spouse, a parent, a friend, communicate something of how we are really feeling about a sunset, who we really feel we are-only to fall strangely and miserably flat. Once in a great while we succeed, sometimes more with one person, less or never with others. But the occasional break-through only proves the rule. You reach out with a disclosure, fail, and fall back bitterly into yourself." - Author: Ernest Becker

Quotes About Welt

"Wenn wir nicht wüssten, wieviele Millionen von außerordentlichen Talenten an jedem Tage in aller Welt verkümmern müssen, weil sie von keinem aufgehoben und angepackt und entwickelt und schließlich zu den höchsten Höhen hinauf entwickelt werden!" - Author: Thomas Bernhard

Quotes About Figure Drawing

"Cold men destroy women," my mother wrote me years later. "They woo them with something personable that they bring out for show, something annexed to their souls like a fake greenhouse, lead you in, and you think you see life and vitality and sun and greenness, and then when you love them, they lead you out into their real soul, a drafty, cavernous, empty ballroom, inexorably arched and vaulted and mocking you with its echoes—you hear all you have sacrificed, all you have given, landing with a loud clunk. They lock the greenhouse and you are as tiny as a figure in an architects drawing, a faceless splotch, a blur of stick limbs abandoned in some voluminous desert of stone." - Author: Lorrie Moore
