Dale Fife Quotes

"Many believe that they must discover their purpose for living, that life is about purpose. But, in truth, life is purpose. Meaning is found in the fact of life itself. So many people try to find fulfillment in what they do, instead of who they are and who I am."

Carrie Ann Inaba Quotes

"My mother, on Sundays, used to prepare things to use during the week, like freshly made broth. It wasnt chicken stock or pasta sauces. She always made her own homemade pasta.

Quotes About Logarithmic Functions

"Objects and their functions no longer had any significance. All I perceived was perception itself, the hell of forms and figures devoid of human emotion and detached from the reality of my unreal environment. I was an instrument in a virtual world that constantly renewed its own meaningless image in a living world that was itself perceived outside of nature. And since the appearance of things was no longer definitive but limitless, this paradisiacal awareness freed me from the reality external to myself. The fire and the rose, as it were, became one." - Author: Federico Fellini

Needed today: more Peters." - Author: Charles R. Swindoll

Quotes About All Black Outfits

"A green hunting cap squeezed the top of the fleshy balloon of a head. The green earflaps, full of large ears and uncut hair and the fine bristles that grew in the ears themselves, stuck out on either side like turn signals indicating two directions at once. Full, pursed lips protruded beneath the bushy black moustache and, at their corners, sank into little folds filled with disapproval and potato chip crumbs. In the shadow under the green visor of the cap Ignatius J. Reillys supercilious blue and yellow eyes looked down upon the other people waiting under the clock at the D.H. Holmes department store, studying the crowd of people for signs of bad taste in dress. Several of the outfits, Ignatius noticed, were new enough and expensive enough to be properly considered offenses against taste and decency. Possession of anything new or expensive only reflected a persons lack of theology and geometry; it could even cast doubts upon ones soul." - Author: John Kennedy Toole

Jesus, people!" - Author: Rob Sheffield

But Mr. Becker from Becker Funeral Homes had done a nice job fluffing Mr. Callahans face back out again so he ended up looking like one of those waxy mannequins that you pay a dime to see up at the Wisconsin state Fair." - Author: Lesley Kagen
