[The Men Laugh At The Witty Line, But It Is Not A Belly Laugh. Beasley's Mouth Is In A Wide Smile, But His Eyes Do Not Laugh, For There Is Little Reason For Joy. And If Eyes Are Indeed Mirrors Of The Soul, Then They Reflect An Infinite Sadness. I Look Away, Afraid Of What Mine Might Reflect]

Joyce Johnson Quotes

"Id learned myself by the age of sixteen that just as girls guarded their virginity, boys guarded something less tangible which they called Themselves."

Amelia Josephine Burr Quotes

"Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.My cheek like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed.Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I have kissed young love on the lips, I have heard his song to the end.I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal hand of a friend.I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort of work done well.I have longed for death in the darkness and risen alive out of hell.Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I give a share of my soul to the world where my course is run.I know that another shall finish the task I must leave undone.I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod.As one looks on a face through a window, through life I have looked on God.Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die."

Soujourner Truth Quotes

"Then that little man in black there, he says women cant have as much rights as men, cause Christ wasnt a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them."

Quotes About Urgent

"I know what the majority of you think about all this. All this sex and money and drugs. You think: people who live like that never end up happy. You need to think that in just the way men with small penises need to think size doesnt matter. Its understandable. The rich, the famous, the big-dicked, the slim-and-gorgeous - they can incite an envy so urgent that you can escape it only by translating it into pity. People who live like that never end up happy. Yes, youre right. But neither do you. And in the meantime, theyve had all the sex and drugs and money." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Ignored Love

"The principals are quite simple. We can love people who treat us well. We cannot love people who treat us badly because, treating someone badly is not a virtue and we can only love virtue. I dont think thats controversial. I mean, there is no marriage therapist that I can imagine in the world who would say to a woman being beaten, humiliated, verbally abused, or completely ignored by her husband, "You just need to love him more. You need to work at making him happier." That would be sadistic in the extreme to say to someone. So, in the same way I say, if anyone, I dont care if they are your priest, god, father, mother, or your Siamese twin cousin coming out of your elbow or ass. I dont care. If someone is treating you badly, that is not good for you. The solution is not you being so great that you both become better. Thats not a realistic solution." - Author: Stefan Molyneux

Quotes About Best Life Moments

"I had as yet no notion that life every now and then becomes literature—not for long, of course, but long enough to be what we best remember, and often enough so that what we eventually come to mean by life are those moments when life, instead of going sideways, backwards, forward, or nowhere at all, lines out straight, tense and inevitable, with a complication, climax, and, given some luck, a purgation, as if life had been made and not happened." - Author: Norman Maclean
