"Uh… not sure buying the entire store for that boy is good, Chace.

He calls himself Outlaw Al. He celebrated his seven hundredth birthday this year and looks it. You talk to him, hell swear he was the one who shot Billy the Kid. Every feral cat in Carnal will claw you soon as look at you but of any day or night, one or a dozen of ‘em will be curled into Al like hes their Momma. He has two teeth. And I dont see good things for his dental future since Shambles and Sunny built a small lean-to behind La-La Land so hell have some protection from exposure. He was much obliged for this effort.

I think our kidll be good." - Author: Kristen Ashley

Quotes About Blindness In Othello

"Compare with such a one the common rabble of mankind, stupid and mean-spirited, servile, instable, and continually floating with the tempest of various passions, that tosses and tumbles them to and fro, and all depending upon others, and you will find a greater distance than betwixt heaven and earth; and yet the blindness of common usage is such that we make little or no account of it; whereas if we consider a peasant and a king, a nobleman and a vassal, a magistrate and a private man, a rich man and a poor, there appears a vast disparity, though they differ no more, as a man may say, than in their breeches." - Author: Michel de Montaigne

Quotes About Venus And Mars

Ideas like that are rather humbling. ‘What is the point of it all? ‘Perhaps there isnt a point. ‘Yet… and Pecuchet repeated the word two or three times, without finding anything more to say." - Author: Gustave Flaubert

Quotes About Media Bias

"[Seeing clearly] is not so difficult to achieve, and yet it is rather unusual. To my mind, it is less a question of an exalted or shrewd intelligence than of good sense, goodwill and a certain sort of courage to enable one to rise above both the pressures of ones environment and the natural inclination to close ones eyes to facts, a temptation that arises from our immediate interests and from the fear which problems inspire in us. A French essayist has said: What is terrible when you seek the truth, is that you find it. You find it, and then you are no longer free to follow the biases of your personal circle, or to accept fashionable cliches." - Author: Victor Serge
