Quotes About Yourself And Love

"I wish I could say we all lived happily ever after. I cant. But I can say we lived. Our love for Nate lives, and hes left us this piece of himself in his art; it was his gift to us. We know him through his art, and I can take comfort in that. I guess the thing about high school is, its the moment when you start to cross from a being a kid to being an adult, and this journey to know yourself begins. Nates journey ended to early, and I thought I had to run away to some far-off land to start mine. But, for now, it seems to me that I have enough to explore right here. Theres a whole continent to discover in myself, and I know that its love - love for my parents, my friends, my brother, and my art - that will guide me. Love will be my map." - Author: Lisa Ann Sandell

The faces of famous statues are preserved like intaglios...." - Author: Leonard Cohen

Quotes About Classical Greece

"With the rise of classical Greece, the soul debate evolved into the more familiar heart-versus-brain, the liver having been demoted to an accessory role. We are fortunate that this is so, for we would otherwise have been faced with Celine Dion singing "My Liver Belongs to You" and movie houses playing The Liver Is a Lonely Hunter. Every Spanish love song that contains the word corazon, which is all of them, would contain the somewhat less lilting higado, and bumper stickers would proclaim, "I [liver symbol] my Pekingese." - Author: Mary Roach
