Robin York Quotes

"I could feed you a line about how I want that because I think you need somebody to show you youre not broken, how youre beautiful and sexy and if youre dirty its only in the good way, the way everybody is dirty. I could tell you that, and it would be true, but whats really true is that Im selfish and I want you. I dont know how to stop wanting you. Im just really fucking tired of trying."

Quotes About Borgias

"Through neglect, ignorance, or inability, the new intellectual Borgias cram hairballs down our throats and refuse us the convulsion that could make us well. They have forgotten, if they ever knew, the ancient knowledge that only by being truly sick can one regain health. Even beasts know when it is good and proper to throw up. Teach me how to be sick then, in the right time and place, so that I may again walk in the fields and with the wise and smiling dogs know enough to chew sweet grass." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About My Life Getting Better

"For a long time before I met you, I felt my life was this kind of test. I was in deep, cold water, swimming for shore, and my arms were getting tired,my skin numb. On the shore was everything I thought I wanted: a better job, a house, a family."He swallowed, his throat cording with tension. "But I could barely keep my head above water. Eventually I stopped seeing the shore. Only cold dark blue, in all directions. I know its cliché, but when I met you, my eyes opened. I looked around, and realized I could stand up whenever I wanted. There was firm ground under my feet." - Author: Leah Raeder

Quotes About Occurred

"And now, indeed, everything began to look new, unexpected, full of surprises. I had a book in my hands to while away the time, and it occurred to me that in a way a landscape is not unlike a book--a compilation of pages that overlap without any two ever being the same. People open the book according to their taste and training, their memories and desires: for a geologist the compilation opens at one page, for a boatman at another, and still another for a ships pilot, a painter and so on. On occasion these pages are ruled with lines that are invisible to some people, while being for others as real, as charged and as volatile as high-voltage cables." - Author: Amitav Ghosh

Quotes About Merlin

"Merlins eyes narrowed. "We require heroes of wit and cleverness, unafraid to foil convention in order to defend a higher allegiance. Battle skills matter not. What we need at this moment, James Potter, are scoundrels with honor." - Author: G. Norman Lippert

Quotes About Dogs And Naps

"The Prologue to TERRITORY LOST"Of cats first disobedience, and the heightOf that forbidden tree whose doomd ascentBrought man into the world to help us downAnd made us subject to his moods and whims,For though we may have knockd an apple looseAs we were carried safely to the ground,We never said to eat thaccursed thing,But yet with him were exiled from our placeWith loss of hosts of sweet celestial miceAnd toothsome baby birds of paradise,And so were sent to stray across the earthAnd suffer dogs, until some greater CatRestore us, and regain the blissful yard,Sing, heavenly Mews, that on the ancient banksOf Egypts sacred river didst inspireThat pharaoh who first taught the sons of menTo worship members of our feline breed:Instruct me in thunfolding of my tale;Make fast my grasp upon my themes dark threadsThat undistracted save by naps and snacksI may oercome our native reticenceAnd justify the ways of cats to men." - Author: Henry N. Beard

Quotes About Lost Friends Found

"The anticipation and dread he felt at seeing her was also a kind of sensual pleasure, and surrounding it, like an embrace, was a general elation--it might hurt, it was horribly inconvenient, no good might come of it, but he had found out for himself what it was to be in love, and it thrilled him." - Author: Ian McEwan

Quotes About Allen

"The only other person I have fallen in love with that way is Jesus, and I hope that goes more smoothly. I hope I remember, when Im bored with Him, and antsy, and sick of brushing my teeth next to the same god every morning, I hope I remember not to leave Him. I am not so worried that He will leave me. The Bible, after all, is full of stories about God sticking with His Bride, no matter how stiff-necked and prideful and unfaithful she may be." - Author: Lauren F. Winner

Quotes About Ite

"What are Christians known for? Outsiders think our moralizing, our condemnations, and our attempts to draw boundaries around everything. Even if these standards are accurate and biblical, they seem to be all we have to offer. And our lives are a poor advertisement for the standards. We have set the gameboard to register lifestyle points; then we are surprised to be trapped by our mistakes. The truth is we have invited the hypocrite image." - Author: David Kinnaman

Quotes About Mental Illness And Hope

"Tempting as it may be to draw one conclusion or another from my story and universalize it to apply to anothers experience, it is not my intention for my book to be seen as some sort of cookie-cutter approach and explanation of mental illness, It is not ab advocacy of any particular form of therapy over another. Nor is it meant to take sides in the legitimate and necessary debate within the mental health profession if which treatments are most effective for this or any other mental illness.            What it is, I hope, is a way for readers to get a true feel for what its like to be in the grips of mental illness and what its like to strive for recovery." - Author: Rachel Reiland
