Bruce Jay Friedman Quotes

Zora Neale Hurston Quotes

"Make the attempt if you want to, but you will find that trying to go through life without friendship, is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it."

Anders Nilsen Quotes

"We are sorry about the way things turned out. We gave, in the phrasing of our words if not literally in the words themselves, the false impression that these pages might hold some small fragment, some slight fragrance of a greater truth. That there might be something here to be learned. Before we go any further the author of this cartoon wishes to make an apology. Such an impression was deliberately cultivated. It is a ruse. It is a lie. We are every bit as lost and afraid as children abandoned in a wood: every bit as lost as you."

John Lilly Quotes

"In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true."

Quotes About The White Cliffs Of Dover

"Perhaps I shall not write my account of the Paleolithic at all, but make a film of it. A silent film at that, in which I shall show you first the great slumbering rocks of the Cambrian period, and move from those to the mountains of Wales...from Ordovician to Devonian, on the lush glowing Cotswolds, on to the white cliffs of Dover... An impressionistic, dreaming film, in which the folded rocks arise and flower and grow and become Salisbury Cathedral and York Minster..." - Author: Penelope Lively

Quotes About Unfair Love

"What I mean is, all the terrible things that happen in fairy tales seem real. Or not real, but genuine. Life is unfair, and the bad guys keep winning and good people die. But I like how thats not always the end of it...Evil is real, but so is good. They always say fairy tales are simplistic, black and white, but I dont think so. I think theyre complicated. Thats what I love about them." - Author: Polly Shulman

Quotes About Understandable

"He knew full well, from his Spencer, that man can never attain ultimate knowledge of anything, and that the mystery of beauty was no less than that of life - nay, more that the fibres of beauty and life were intertwisted, and that he himself was but a bit of the same nonunderstandable fabric, twisted of sunshine and star-dust and wonder." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Possessing Power

"Listen to me, Defecates-with-Pigeons. Long before any of you came here, we dreamd of you. All the people, even Nations far to the South and the West, dreamt you before ever we saw you,— we believd that you came from some other World, or the Sky. You had Powers and we respected them. Yet you never dreamd of us, and when at last you saw us, wishd only to destroy us. Then the killing started,— some of you, some of us,— but not nearly as many as wed been expecting. You could not be the Giants of long ago, who would simply have wipd us away, and for less. Instead, you sold us your Powers,— your Rifles,— as if encouraging us to shoot at you,— and so we did, tho not hitting as many of you, as you were expecting. Now you begin to believe that we have come from elsewhere, possessing Powers you do not— Those of us who knew how, have fled into Refuge in your Dreams, at last. Tho we now pursue real lives no different at their Hearts from yours, we are also your Dreams." - Author: Thomas Pynchon

Quotes About Recovering Trust

"Recovering is a process of coming to experience a sense of self. More precisely, it is a process of learning to sense ones self, to attune to ones subjective physical, psychic, and social self- experience. These womans core sense of shame and their difficulty tolerating painful emotions had led them to avoid turning their attention inward to their internal sense of things. In recovering, they "came to their senses" and learned to trust their sensed experience, in particular their sense of "enoughness""." - Author: Sheila M. Reindl

Quotes About Supportive Parents
