Ghada Karmi Quotes

"...We never set eyes on Fatima or our dog or the city we had known ever again. Like a body prematurely buried, unmourned withpot coffin or ceremony, our hasty untidy exit from Jerusalem was no way to have said goodbye to our home, our country and all that we knew and loved."

Raudzah Roza Roslan Quotes

"Hidup ini ibarat batu giling. Perlu ada alu dan alas. Kedua-duanya perlu berganding bagi menggiling lada kering. Air pula peranannya bagi menjadikan gilingan lada ini lebih lembut dan halus. Lada pula mudah hancur. Tengok, Allah jadikan sesuatu itu ada gunanya (Travelog cinta abadi)"

Laura Z Hobson Quotes

"Any life hed ever heard of, his own included, was burdened with emotions - love, loss, jobs, jealousy, money, death, pain. But if you were jewish, always there was this extra one, the added pull at your endurance, the one more thing. There was that line in Thoreau about "quiet desperation" - that was indeed true of most men. But for some men and women, for some fathers and mothers and children, the world still contrived that one extra test, endless and unrelenting."

Lan Fang Quotes

"Waktu itu semua sudah tidak ada yang bisa kuingat. Karena waktu itu kata-kata sudah seakan tidak berarti lagi. Yang ada di memoriku hanyalahwarna pekat. Kucari warna-waran lain , tidak pernah ada. Bahkan putih pun sudah seperti jelaga."

Kimberly Giles Quotes

"Every day is a grand adventure into the great unknown and you cannot know what lies around the next corner. So, standing in this place, with the unknown before you, you have only two choices: you can live in trust (believing you are safe and that good things are coming) or you can live in fear (scared of the future and focused on you). Your choice will not change whats around that next corner, it will be what its meant to be, but it will have a big impact on the way you feel today. Do you want to experience today in fear, focused on yourself? Or do you want to experience trust and focus on love? Its up to you."

Quotes About Crime Genre

"For my money, noir boils down to bleak humanism – or, to put it more plainly: shit options, bad decisions, and direconsequences. The difference between Greek tragedy and noir aint the height of the fall, but the reason: those who fall in Greek tragedy do so because theyre destined to; those who fall in noir choose to their damn selves.In short, free wills a bitch.But regardless of whose definition you go with, youll notice somethings lacking: namely, any mention of genre. Thats because for as much as noirs assumed to be a subset of crime fiction, its more vibe than subgenre. And, as many an enterprising modern writer seems intent on proving, that vibe is one that plays just as well with fantasy and science fiction as it does with crime." - Author: Chris F. Holm

Quotes About Pictorial Life

"Traveling together into what the poet Adrienne Rich has called ‘the cratered night of female memory, they undertook a shared process of self-discovery, working together to probe the possibility of womans creative power.

Quotes About Cretins

"If there is a true measure of a persons soul, if there is a single gauge of real divinity, of how beautifully a fellow human honors this life, has genuine spiritual fire and is full of honest love and compassion, it has to be right there, in the eyes.The Dalai Lamas eyes sparkle and dance with laughter and unbridled love. The Popes eyes are dark and glazed, bleak as obsidian marbles. Pat Robertsons eyes are rheumy and hollow, like tiny potholes of old wax. Goldman Sachs cretins, well, they dont use their own eyes at all; they just steal someone elses." - Author: Mark Morford

Quotes About Going Easy On Yourself

"I hope they dont think were leaving. I want to tell them were coming back. And that were not going to hell. I mean, who are they to say? Its one thing to warn someone out of concern. Its another to take it upon yourself to make the damnation. The last time I checked, it was the Lords call whether or not we go to hell. I hope whenever a person tells another person he or she is going to hell that the Lord notices and decides to hold it against the hell-caller when his or her day of judgement comes. I hope heor she gets up to the gates and the Lord says, It was so easy for you to send people to hell in My name that Im afraid its going to be easy for Me to do the same." - Author: David Levithan
