Brad Barkley Quotes

"I pu my finger to her lips. "You have to hush a minute so that I can tell you something.""What?" she says, bites my finger.I look at her. "I love you."She gets quiet, the kind of quiet that sinks into her, softens her. "Well that works out," she finally says, her voice deeper and breathless, her eyes moist, "because I love you too." She turns, leans against my arm, and settles into me."

Quotes About Knowledge Sharing

"So I ask you: whose job is it in this country to wake up comatose parents?

Quotes About Searching For God

"Id like to suggest that when we search for truth, we search among those books and in those places where truth is most likely to be found. Ive often referred to a simple couplet: "You do not find truth groveling through error. You find truth by searching the holy word of God." There are those who for direction and inspiration turn to the philosophies of man. There a smattering of truth may be found, but not the entire spectrum. Sometimes the truth of such philosophies is based upon a shallow foundation. . . . We need to turn to the truth of God." - Author: Thomas S. Monson

Quotes About Greek Architecture

"The so-called Christian nations are the most enlightened and progressive ... but in spite of their religion, not because of it. The Church has opposed every innovation and discovery from the day of Galileo down to our own time, when the use of anesthetic in childbirth was regarded as a sin because it avoided the biblical curse pronounced against Eve. And every step in astronomy and geology ever taken has been opposed by bigotry and superstition. The Greeks surpassed us in artistic culture and in architecture five hundred years before Christian religion was born." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About A Girl Not Talking To You

"Im thinking we ought to rethink the whole self-esteem thing. It should almost be a dirty word. I mean, look at Kayla. She has the intelligence of a tree stump, and its sense of humour. Shes less about real attractiveness than she is about advertising... Shes the kind of girl who shows how hot she is because she has nothing else to offer, who doesnt realise that hotness has an expiration date. Yet, Im still a little nervous talking to her like shes holding a lottery ticket she just might or might not decide to hand over to me. It is nuts, if you stop to think about it. I give give her this power, and its kind of like voting some idiot into office. But hey, were good at that, too." - Author: Deb Caletti

Quotes About Boring Person

"Gods are boring creatures, Bet. Most are nosthing more than spoiled children with powers they never hesitate to use against those weaker. And while your father can be juvenile at times, there is a danger to him. He understands his power ans hes fierce with it. More than that, he doesnt prey on those weaker, he only attacks those who are stronger/ That was what dreq me to him and why i agreed tp be the mother of his daugher. His strength, and the fact that he never once did he use it against me. Your father is like having a lion for a pet. You know that its a creature of utter and supreme violence whose mere nature and talent is murder, and yet it lies down at your side and purrs for your touch alone. There is nothing more titillating.But more than that was hpw you father made me feel. He awoke something inside me that had never lived before. He breathed life into my soul and I was a better person for having known him" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
