Isaac Of Nenevah Quotes

"Silence will illuminate you in God... and deliver you from phantoms of ignorance. Silence will unite you to God.... In the beginning we have to force ourselves to be silent.

Karen Pryor Quotes

"In due course I would learn how to cover up for this event, but on that awful day I knew of nothing to say but: Well, I guess they arent going to do that either, heh, heh." FINALLY Hoku and Kiko stopped staring suspiciously through the glass long enough to go over the six bars, gracefully arcing in and out of the water against the glass, making the beautiful picture they were supposed to. I waved frantically at Chris to stop right there, to quit while we were ahead. I thanked the politely clapping audience and suggested they come back in a month and see what Hoku and Kiko could really do (I didnt have the courage to order them to KEEP clapping, and louder, please, so that Hoku and Kiko would do the applause jump). Then I yanked out the mike plug, raced down the ladder into the trainers little sitting room underneath the stage, and took up smoking again."

Phil Cooke Quotes

"Be ruthless in one important area: Yourself. Be ruthless about your commitment to Christ. Be ruthless about your intellectual growth. Be ruthless about finishing well. One of the biggest areas we should be ruthless about is our time. How much time do you spend complaining about your problems to people who cant help you solve them? How much time do you talk when you should be doing? When it comes to others, be gracious. But when it comes to you and your time, be ruthless."

Quotes About Being Blah

"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhhed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Dont let someone steal your tenderness. Dont allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things.

Give it and feel love." - Author: Zooey Deschanel

Quotes About Love For Your Husband

"I love you, Savannah, and I always will," I breathed. "Youre the best thing thats ever happened to me. You were my best friend and my lover, and I dont regret a single moment of it. You made me feel alive again, and most of all, you gave me my father. Ill never forget you for that. Youre always going to be the very best part of me. Im sorry it has to be this way, but I have to leave, and you have to see your husband." As I spoke, I could feel her shaking with sobs, and I continued to hold her for a long time afterward. When we finally seperated, I knew that it would be the last time I ever held her. I backed away, my eyes holding Savannahs. "I love you, too, John," she said. "Good-bye." I raised a hand." - Author: Nicholas Sparks

Quotes About City Lights

"The bag was a hybrid I had picked up at a store called Suitcase City while I was plotting my comeback. [...] It had a logo on it -- a mountain ridgeline with the words "Suitcase City" printed across it like the Hollywood sign. Above it, skylights swept the horizon, completing the dream image of desire and hope. I think that logo was the real reason I liked the bag. Because I knew Suitcase City wasnt a store. It was a place. It was Los Angeles." - Author: Michael Connelly

Quotes About The Highlands Of Scotland

"Some discussion of the nature and temperament of the fairies is necessary in view of its possible bearing on their origin. J. G. Campbell tells us that in the Highlands of Scotland they were regarded as "the counterparts of mankind, but substantial and unreal, outwardly invisible." They differ from mortals in the possession of magical power, but are strangely dependent in many ways on man. They are generally considered by the folk at large as of a nature between spirits and men. "They are," says Wentz, "a distinct race between our own and that of spirits." - Author: Lewis Spence
