Quotes About Improvements

"Henry had never felt so happy. Freshperson year had been one thing, an adventure, an exhilaration, all in all a success, but it had also been exhausting, a constant struggle and adjustment and tumult. Now he was locked in. Every day that summer had the same framework, the alarm at the same time, meals and workouts and shifts and SuperBoost at the same times, over and over, and it was that sameness, that repetition, that gave life meaning. He savored the tiny variations, the incremental improvements--tuna fish on his salad instead of turkey; tow extra reps on the bench press. Every move he made had purpose." - Author: Chad Harbach

Quotes About Being Toned

"And then Harry Potter had launched in to a speech that was inspiring, yet vague. A speech to the effect that Fred and George and Lee had tremendous potential if they could just learn to be weirder. To make peoples live surreal, instead of just surprising them with the equivalents of buckets of water propped above doors. (Fred and George had exchanged interested looks, theyd never thought of that one.) Harry Potter had invoked a picture of the prank theyd pulled on Neville - which, Harry had mentioned with some remorse, the Sorting Hat had chewed him out on - but which must have made Neville doubt his own sanity. For Neville it would have felt like being suddendly transported into an alternate universe. The same way everyone else had felt when theyd seen Snape apologize. That was the true power of pranking." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Quotes About Entering Heaven

"Much I marvelled at the sagacity evinced by waiters and chamber-maids in proportioning the accommodation to the guest. How could inn-servants and ship-stewardesses everywhere tell at a glance that I, for instance, was an individual of no social significance, and little burdened by cash? They did know it evidently: I saw quite well that they all, in a moments calculation, estimated me at about the same fractional value. The fact seemed to me curious and pregnant: I would not disguise from myself what it indicated, yet managed to keep up my spirits pretty well under its pressure.Having at last landed in a great hall, full of skylight glare, I made my way somehow to what proved to be the coffee room.It cannot be denied that on entering this room I trembled somewhat; felt uncertain, solitary, wretched; wished to Heaven I knew whether I was doing right or wrong; felt convinced that it was the last, but could not help myself." - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About Not Texting

"Whats not so great is that all this technology is destroying our social skills. Not only have we given up on writing letters to each other, we barely even talk to each other. People have become so accustomed to texting that theyre actually startled when the phone rings. Its like we suddenly all have Batphones. If it rings, there must be danger. Now we answer, "What happened? Is someone tied up in the old sawmill?""No, its Becky. I just called to say hi.""Well you scared me half to death. You cant just pick up the phone and try to talk to me like that. Dont the tips of your fingers work?" - Author: Ellen DeGeneres

Quotes About Kuili

"Usalama wa Taifa ni akili si ukali. Kazi yake, au wajibu wake; ni kukusanya, kuchanganua, kudurusu na kuunganisha kwa makini, taarifa nyeti za kijasusi za ndani na nje ya nchi kuilinda Tanzania na watu wake. Ukitaka kuwa na akili kuwa kawaida. Ukitaka kuwa na nguvu kuwa mkarimu. Ukitaka kuwa tajiri kuwa tajiri wa unyenyekevu." - Author: Enock Maregesi

Quotes About Homeschooling Mom

"Pauls story is good news for those of us who are tempted to put our trust in ourselves, in our own ability to work hard enough to merit Gods favor. Grace is so surprising! Its surprising because while it may seem likely that a prostitute would recognize her need for rescue, the homeschooling, bread-baking, devotion-reading mom who attends her local church faithfully (while trusting in her own goodness) will choke on the humiliating message of gospel rescue. Rescue? Why would she need rescuing?" - Author: Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
