Lucy Larcom Quotes

"I remember how beautiful the Merrimac looked to me in childhood, the first true river I ever knew; it opened upon my sight and wound its way through my heart like a dream realized; its harebells, its rocks, and its rapids, are far more fixed in my memory than anything about the sea."

Andres Neuman Quotes

"Love and translation look alike in their grammar. To love someone implies transforming their words into ours. Making an effort to understand the other person and, inevitably, to misinterpret them. To construct a precarious language together."

Brigid Schulte Quotes

"What if not just women, but both men and women, worked smart, more flexible schedules? What if the workplace itself was more fluid than the rigid and narrow ladder to success of the ideal worker? And what if both men and women became responsible for raising children and managing the home, sharing work, love, and play? Could everyone then live whole lives?"

Quotes About Dare To Love

"If suddenly you do not exist,if suddenly you no longer live,I shall live on.I do not dare,I do not dare to write it,if you die.I shall live on.For where a man has no voice,there, my voice.Where blacks are beaten,I cannot be dead.When my brothers go to prisonI shall go with them.When victory,not my victory,but the great victory comes,even though I am mute I must speak;I shall see it come even though I am blind.No, forgive me.If you no longer live,if you, beloved, my love,if you have died,all the leaves will fall in my breast,it will rain on my soul night and day,the snow will burn my heart,I shall walk with frost and fire and death and snow,my feet will want to walk to where you are sleeping, butI shall stay alive,because above all things you wanted me indomitable,and, my love, because you know that I am not only a manbut all mankind." - Author: Pablo Neruda

Quotes About Sheri

"Mr. Buckley, let me explain it this way. And Ill do so very carefully & slowly so that even you will understand it. If I was the sheriff, I would not have arrested him. If I was on the grand jury, I would not have indicted him. If I was the judge, I would not try him. If I was the D.A., I would not prosecute him. If I was on the trial jury, I would vote to give him a key to the city, a plaque to hang on his wall, & I would send him home to his family. And, Mr. Buckley, if my daughter is ever raped, I hope I have the guts to do what he did." - Author: John Grisham

Quotes About Pretentious Person

"I just read this great quote by Junot Diaz, he was talking about true intimacy, and he was saying that it was the willingness to be vulnerable and to be found out. Thats what I felt that YA did. It wasnt pretentious, and it wasnt hiding its heart. It wanted to be found out...It felt like those moments when you go to a party and youre standing around for a long time, going, I dont fit in here, what am I going to talk to these people about? And everybodys getting drunk, and then you find this one person, and you end up sitting in some corner talking about all these arcane things.And then before you know it youre having a conversation about the meaning of life and its four oclock in the morning. That kind of feeling, that kind of intimacy — I felt like thats what I got from YA." - Author: Libba Bray

Quotes About Distant Friends

"Our friends - how distant, how mute, how seldom visited and little known. AndI, too, am dim to my friends and unknown; a phantom, sometimes seen, oftennot. Life is a dream surely." - Author: Virginia Woolf
