Nicolas Cage Quotes

"If I could have been a marine biologist I would have, but I didnt have that kind of intelligence. Numbers were never my strong point."

Marc Acito Quotes

"So I kept reading, just to stay alive. In fact, Id read two or three books at the same time, so I wouldnt finish one without being in the middle of another -- anything to stop me from falling into the big, gaping void. You see, books fill the empty spaces. If Im waiting for a bus, or am eating alone, I can always rely on a book to keep me company. Sometimes I think I like them even more than people. People will let you down in life. Theyll disappoint you and hurt you and betray you. But not books. Theyre better than life."

Jose Antonio Abreu Quotes

"No hay nada más sublime en la vida que dar, y cuanto más das, más recibes, y esa es la felicidad que uno tiene, con la que cuenta, y es mucha. Ahí reside el auténtico sentido, todo el sentido."

Douglas Petrie Quotes

"Glory: I look around at this world youre so eager to be a part of and all I see is six billion lunatics looking for the fastest ride out. Whos not crazy? Look around, everyones drinking, smoking, shooting up, shooting each other, or just plain screwing their brains out cause they dont want em anymore. Im crazy? Honey, Im the original one-eyed chicklet in the kingdom of the blind, cause at least I admit the world makes me nuts."

Eavan Boland Quotes

"I began to watch places with an interest so exact it might have been memory. There was that street corner, with the small newsagent which sold copies of the Irish Independent and honeycomb toffee in summer. I could imagine myself there, a child of nine, buying peppermints and walking back down by the canal, the lock brown and splintered as ever, and boys diving from it. It became a powerful impulse, a slow intense reconstruction of a childhood which had never happened. A fragrance or a trick of light was enough. Or a house I entered which I wanted not just to appreciate but to remember, and then I would begin."

Pauline Kael Quotes

"Really, its not people who dont understand us who drive us nuts—its when those who shouldnt, do."

MA Bookout Quotes

"Nothing will have a greater impact on a childs life than his or her ability to read."

Iris Eshel Quotes

Quotes About Hellhound

"Aiden smirked. "Wonder what this one is called?" The hellhounds ears twitched as the massive body lowered preparing for attack. I slid my hand to the middle of the blade, feeling my heart pound and the adrenaline kick my system into overdrive. In the pit of my stomach, the cord started to unravel. I swallowed. "Lets call this one... Toto." Three mouths opened in a growl that sent a cold chill down my spine, and a wave of hot, fetid breath smacked into us. Bile burned the back of my throat. "I guess it doesnt like the name," I said, moving slowly to the right. Aidens powerful body tensed. "Here, Toto..." One head snapped in his direction. "Thats a good Toto." I slipped around the ancient cross, creeping up on the hellhound from the right. The middle and left head focused on me, snapping and growlying. Aiden clucked his tongue. "Come on, Toto, Im pretty tasty." - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Quotes About Being Empathic

"On the whole, were a murderous race. According to Genesis, it took as few as four people to make the planet too crowded to stand, and the first murder was a fratricide. Genesis says that in a fit of jealous rage, the very first child born to mortal parents, Cain, snapped and popped the first metaphorical cap in another human being. The attack was a bloody, brutal, violent, reprehensible killing. Cains brother Abel probably never saw it coming. As I opened the door to my apartment, I was filled with a sense of empathic sympathy and intuitive understanding. For freaking Cain." - Author: Jim Butcher

He pulled back from me and grinned." - Author: R.K. Lilley

Quotes About Judgement Of Appearance

"Finding The Man. Keeping The Man. Not scaring The Man, building up The Man, following The Man, soothing The Man, flattering The Man, deferring to The Man, changing your judgement for The Man, changing your decisions for The Man, polishing floors for The Man, being perpetually conscious of your appearance for The Man, being romantic for The Man, hinting to The Man, losing yourself in The Man. I never had a thought that wasnt yours. Sob, sob. Whenever I act like a human being, they say, What are you getting upset about? They say: of course youll get married. They say: of course youre brilliant. They say: of course youll get a PhD and then sacrifice it to have babies. They say: if you dont, youre the one wholl have two jobs and you can make a go of it if youre exceptional, which very few women are, and if you find a very understanding man. As long as you dont make more money than he does. How do they expect me to live all this junk?" - Author: Joanna Russ

Quotes About Oak Leaves

"Stories are a kind of thing, too. Stories and objects share something, a patina. I thought I had this clear, two years ago before I started, but I am no longer sure how this works. Perhaps a patina is a process of rubbing back so that the essential is revealed, the way that a striated stone tumbled in a river feels irreducible, the way that this netsuke of a fox has become little more than a memory of a nose and a tail. But it also seems additive, in the way that a piece of oak furniture gains over years and years of polishing, and the way the leaves of my medlar shine." - Author: Edmund de Waal
