Anna Cruise Quotes

"All Im saying is I think you deserve better," Case said. "From my point of view, anyway. You deserve better."I threw my head back on the sofa and laughed. It was a harsh laugh with no mirth. "Most of the time, I dont think I deserve better.""Everyone deserves better.""Not me." I didnt look at him. "No one else would want me. Ive royally fucked up. Everything. There isnt anything better out there. Anything or anyone.""Yeah, there is." "Oh, really?" I brought my eyes back to him. "And where exactly would I find better?" It was quiet for a moment. Then he said,"Well, you might start with me."

Wahida Clark Quotes

"We aint in the game to love these hoes, you suppose to hit it and pass it to the left. I didnt love that hoe, it was just something to do."

Mikita Brottman Quotes

"Should he give free reign to his desires, the bibliomaniac can ruin his life along with the lives of his loved ones. Hell often take better care of his books than of his own health; hell spend more on fiction than he does on food; hell be more interested in his library than in his relationships, and, since few people are prepared to live in a place where every available surface is covered with piles of books, hell often find himself alone, perhaps in the company of a neglected and malnourished cat. When he dies, all but forgotten, his body might fester for days before a curious neighbor grows concerned about the smell."

"She surrounded herself with closed-minded people, and then got mad when people were too closed-minded to get her. Eventually, it was just easier to surround herself with no one. Except me." - Author: Allie Burke

Quotes About Silent Cries

"I had many things to say, I did not have the words to say them. Painfully aware of my limitations, I watched helplessly and language became an obstacle. It became clear that it would be necessary to invent a new language... I would pause at every sentence, and start over and over again. I would conjure up other verbs, other images, other silent cries. It still was not right. But what exactly was "it"? "It" was something elusive, darkly shrouded for fear of being usurped, profaned. All the dictionary had to offer seemed meager, pale, lifeless." - Author: Elie Wiesel

Quotes About Insipid

"I too took the plunge - the vow to observe brahmacharya for life. I must confess that I had not then fully realized the magnitude and immensity of the task I undertook. The difficulties are even today staring me in the face. The importance of the vow is being more and more borne in upon me. Life without brahmacharya appears to me to be insipid and animal-like. The brute by nature knows no self-restraint. Man is man because he is capable of, and only in so far as he exercises, self-restraint. What formerly appeared to me to be extravagant praise of brahmacharya in our religious books seems now, with increasing clearness every day, to be absolutely proper and founded on experience." - Author: Mahatma Gandhi

Quotes About Ignite Me

"Cruelty is a mystery, and the waste of pain. But if we describe a world to compass these things, a world that is a long, brute game, then we bump against another mystery: the inrush of power and light…unless all ages and races of men have been deluded by the same mass hypnotist (who?), there seems to be such a thing as beauty, a grace wholly gratuitous…we dont know whats going on here. If these tremendous events are random combinations of matter run amok, the yield of millions of monkeys at millions of typewriters, then what is it in us, hammered out of those same typewriters, that they ignite? We must somehow take a wider view, look at the whole landscape, really see it, and describe whats going on here. Then we can at least wail the right question into the swaddling band of darkness, or, if it comes to that, choir the proper praise." - Author: Annie Dillard

Quotes About Skulde

"Ved kvældsmaten skulde familjen ha en dram, det var gammel takst, og Rinaldus var den som skulde skjænke i glassene. Det var ham et høitidelig øieblik han skulde holde karaflen med de store malte roser i sine små hænder. Alles øine vogtet på ham... Maten var den reneste fremmedmat, det var både lefse og sirup og et ægg til hver. Man kunde se at det var jul, for det var atpå kjøpet smør til lefserne. (Jul i Åsen, Stridende liv)" - Author: Knut Hamsun
