[She Knows About Men, Knows A Good Deal Of The World's Character. But It Is Hard, Whatever You Have Endured, To Give Up On Love. Hard To Stop Thinking Of It As A Home You Might One Day Find Again. More Than Hard.]

Tammy Kling Quotes

"...none of us knows anything. We think we know, then it turns out that we dont. The universe has a way of intervening. Of changing you. In the end, you dont know what youre seeking, and you dont know what youll find."

Tim Ray Quotes

"Ik wilde niet aan haar denken en me op de mantra concentreren: MAAA, zei ik bij het inademenen en OEEMMM bij het uitademen. MAAA... het was vast al bijna twee uur... OEEMMM. MAAA... je zou het niet zeggen, maar die lotushouding zat niet echt lekker...OEEMMM. MAAAA... als ik Jakob en Janus eens over Ticha vertelde? OEEMMMM. Nee, eerst maar eens zien wat er ging gebeuren... MAAAA... wat rook die wierook vreselijk...OEEMMM. MAAA... komt Ticha alleen of neemt ze een paar van die wezens mee met wie ze werkt? OEEMMM. MAAAA... au, au, au ik heb kramp in mijn rechterbeen!"

Emily Auerbach Quotes

"Eudora Welty singles out for praise Austens "habit of seeing both sides of her own subject - of seeing it indeed in the round". ... Both men and women can be vain about their appearances, selfish about money, overawed by rank, and limited by parochialism; both men and women can function capably, think profoundly, feel deeply, create imaginatively, laugh wittily, and love faithfully. Without vindicating the rights of anyone directly, Austen posits a humanism far ahead of her time. "How really modern she is, after all," Welty concludes of Austen."

Henry Ward Beecher Quotes

"There are joys which long to be ours. God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away."

Quotes About Lions Hunting

"Why, thats like being told to go up in the hills to find lions, only you do not know whether there are any lions, but if there are, they may be hunting you, and they may be disguised as bushes. Oh, and if you find any lions, try not to let them eat you before you can tell where they are. -Elayne" - Author: Robert Jordan

Quotes About Creator And Creation

"God first appeared on the scene of human history in the role of a matchmaker. What a profound and exciting revelation!Is it too much to suggest that Eve came to Adam on the arm of the Lord Himself in the same way that a bride today walks down the aisle of the church on her fathers arm? What human mind can fathom the depth of love and joy that filled the heart of the great Creator as He united the man and woman in this first marriage ceremony?Surely this account is one among countless indications that the Bible is not a work of merely human authorship. Moses is generally accepted as the author of the creation record. But apart from supernatural inspiration, he would never have dared to open human history with a scene of such amazing intimacy—first between God and man, and then between man and woman." - Author: Derek Prince

Quotes About Mental Institutions

"America today is a "save yourself" society if there ever was one. But does it really work? The underdeveloped societies suffer from one set of diseases: tuberculosis, malnutrition, pneumonia, parasites, typhoid, cholera, typhus, etc. Affluent America has virtually invented a whole new set of diseases: obesity, arteriosclerosis, heart disease, strokes, lung cancer, venereal disease, cirrhosis of the liver, drug addiction, alcoholism, divorce, battered children, suicide, murder. Take your choice. Labor-saving machines have turned out to be body-killing devices. Our affluence has allowed both mobility and isolation of the nuclear family, and as a result, our divorce courts, our prisons and our mental institutions are flooded. In saving ourselves we have nearly lost ourselves." - Author: John Piper

Then he wondered at his bravado.No masturbation at all?That was impossible." - Author: Upamanyu Chatterjee

Quotes About Edsa Revolution

"If men lived like men indeed, their houses would be temples -- temples which we should hardly dare to injure, and in which it would make us holy to be permitted to live; and there must be a strange dissolution of natural affection, a strange unthankfulness for all that homes have given and parents taught, a strange consciousness that we have been unfaithful to our fathers honor, or that our own lives are not such as would make our dwellings sacred to our children, when each man would fain build to himself, and build for the little revolution of his own life only." - Author: John Ruskin

Quotes About Diabo

"The more civilized a nation, the more conformed its population, until that civilizations last age arrives, when multiplicity wages war with conformity. The former grows ever wilder, ever more dysfunctional in its extremities; whilst the latter seeks to increase its measure of control, until such efforts acquire diabolical tyranny.- Traveller" - Author: Steven Erikson

Quotes About Stagnant

"Anger is like flowing water; theres nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human." - Author: C. JoyBell C.
