Brian Alan Ellis Quotes

"You fall into thought while staring at the green foliage back here—so much damn green that it envelops you in its cruddy fist—and the thoughts arent too good, either—thoughts of sitting on the toilet—eating a sandwich—standing in line at a grocery store—watching an episode of Cheaters—doing laundry—staring at your face in a mirror—shaving it—snorting crushed pills—falling in love—death—all death—and the green shrubbery carries you away with it."

Knut Hamsun Quotes

"The poet must always, in every instance, have the vibrant word... that by its trenchancy can so wound my soul that it whimpers.... One must know and recognize not merely the direct but the secret power of the word; one must be able to give ones writing unexpected effects. It must have a hectic, anguished vehemence, so that it rushes past like a gust of air, and it must have a latent, roistering tenderness so that it creeps and steals ones mind; it must be able to ring out like a sea-shanty in a tremendous hour, in the time of the tempest, and it must be able to sigh like one who, in tearful mood, sobs in his inmost heart."

"A big thing will remain a big thing until a bigger thing will occur."

His Highness The Aga Khan Quotes

"For too long some of our schools have taught too many subjects as subsets of dogmatic commitments...Too often, education made our students less flexible- confident to the point of arrogance that they now had all the answers- rather than more flexible- humble in their lifelong openness to new questions and new responses. An important goal of quality education is to equip each generation to participate effectively in what has been called the great conversation of our times. This means, on one hand, being unafraid of controversy. But, on the other hand, it also means being sensitive to the values and outlooks of others."

Sunny John Quotes

"Vision without an Action is Illusion. Action without a Vision is Confusion."

Louis De Broglie Quotes

"Science itself, no matter whether it is the search for truth or merely the need to gain control over the external world, to alleviate suffering, or to prolong life, is ultimately a matter of feeling, or rather, of desire-the desire to know or the desire to realize."

American Proverb Quotes

"Better late than ever."

Bill Terry Quotes

"I had great control, I never missed hitting the others fellow bat."

Quotes About The First Automobile

"Death is a personal matter, arousing sorrow, despair, fervor, or dry-hearted philosophy. Funerals, on the other hand, are social functions. Imagine going to a funeral without first polishing the automobile. Imagine standing at a graveside not dressed in your best dark suit and your best black shoes, polished delightfully. Imagine sending flowers to a funeral with no attached card to prove you had done the correct thing. In no social institution is the codified ritual of behavior more rigid than in funerals. Imagine the indignation if the minister altered his sermon or experimented with facial expression. Consider the shock if, at the funeral parlors, any chairs were used but those little folding yellow torture chairs with the hard seats. No, dying, a man may be loved, hated, mourned, missed; but once dead he becomes the chief ornament of a complicated and formal social celebration." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Focusing On God

"JANUARY 19 Expect the Blessings of God Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. PSALM 27:14 Sometimes you may feel discouraged, miserable, and depressed. In those times you need to take a close look at whats been going on in your mind. Isaiah 26:3 tells you when you keep your mind on the Lord you will have "perfect and constant peace." By focusing on the goodness of God and waiting, hoping, and expecting Him to encourage you and fill you with His peace and joy, you can overcome negative thoughts that drag you down. Think and speak positively. Begin believing right now that you are about to see Gods goodness in your life. Wait, hope, and expect His blessings to be abundant in your life." - Author: Joyce Meyer

Quotes About Crazy Hair

"To be fair, you can tell me what you think of me," Max offered. "I didnt mean to offend you. I was just making a few observations.""How could I possibly know enough about you to make a proper judgment?" His tone was harsher than hed anticipated. "Youve taken a stranger into your home without so much as a second thought and offered everything but your bed. Crazy comes to mind. Suicidal maybe."Max leaned forward in her chair, readying her defenses. "Excuse me?""I dont mean to sound ungrateful here but please remember that you dont know me. I appreciate all that youve done but that doesnt entitle you to judge me.""I wasnt judging you," she bit back. "But maybe youre right. I dont think I thought this through at all." - Author: Shawn Kirsten Maravel

Quotes About Desir

"As he watched Joe stand, blazing, on the fire escape, Sammy felt an ache in his chest that turned out to be, as so often occurs when memory and desire conjoin with a transient effect of weather, the pang of creation. The desire he felt, watching Joe, was unquestionably physical, but in the sense that Sammy wanted to inhabit the body of his cousin, not possess it. It was, in part, a longing--common enough among the inventors of heroes--to be someone else; to be more than the result of two hundred regimens and scenarios and self-improvement campaigns that always ran afoul of his perennial inability to locate an actual self to be improved. Joe Kavalier had an air of competence, of faith in his own abilities, that Sammy, by means of constant effort over the whole of his life, had finally learned only to fake." - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Unbelievable Love

"Aladdin was probably my favorite Disney animation when I was a kid. The animation was great and Robin Williams was unbelievable as the Genie. Aladdin was an amazing adventure and the lead character was a hero for guys, which I loved. It wasnt a princess or a girl beating the odds; it was a street rat. That seemed really cool to me." - Author: Zachary Levi

Quotes About Interviewers

"Many interviewers when they come to talk to me, think theyre being progressive by not mentioning in their stories any longer that Im black. I tell them, Dont stop now. If I shot somebody youd mention it." - Author: Colin Powell

Quotes About Night Melody

"The music enchanted the air. It was like the south wind, like a warm night, like swelling sails beneath the stars, completely and utterly unreal... It made everything spacious and colourful, the dark stream of life seemed pulsing in it; there were no burdens any more, no limits; there existed only glory and melody and love, so that one simply could not realize that, at the same time as this music was, outside there ruled poverty and torment and despair." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Quotes About Traditional Music

"Mine is not a traditional music, but it comes from a tradition." - Author: Tom Chapin

Quotes About Enclose

"The Sea Still Sounds (Già da più notti sode ancora il mare)Even more so at night the sea still sounds, Lightly, up and down, along the smooth sands. Echo of an enclosed voice in the mind, that returns in time; and also that assiduous lament of the gulls; birds perhaps of the summits that April drives towards the plain; already you are near to me in that voice; and I wish there might yet come to you from me, an echo of memory, like this dark murmur of the sea." - Author: Salvatore Quasimodo
