Quotes About Shriek

"Harl whirled round, all his attention ... on Skulker. "What is that on your carapace?""What?" Skulker tried to peer back... A tinny voice issued from somewhere...

Quotes About Chains And Freedom

How would I be there underground without God? Rakitins lying: if God is driven from the earth, well meet him underground! Its impossible for a convict to be without God, even more impossible than for a non-convict! And then from the depths of the earth, we, the men underground, will start singing a tragic hymn to God, in who there is joy! Hail to God and his joy! I love him!" - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Distance Between Friends And Family

"To most of society being crazy is like a virus. If were out and about in public people think they can catch the craziness from us or something. Its much easier for them to separate us and forget we ever existed. Almost like being quarantined. I used to see a psychiatrist before I was brought here. I remember the way my mothers friends used to gossip about it. They wouldnt let me play with their children. Its kind of like women who are divorced nowadays. Other women dont talk to them. Theyre usually shunned."A dull ache throbs in my side and I clench my fists."Its like were tossed out trash." Aurora smiles. "Thats a great analogy, Adelaide." - Author: Lauren Hammond

Quotes About Abundance And Prosperity

"Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience." - Author: Anthon St. Maarten

Quotes About Proof Of God

"A mans women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them; they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition. The marks of that so-called intuition are simply a sharp and accurate perception of reality, a habitual immunity to emotional enchantment, a relentless capacity for distinguishing clearly between the appearance and the substance. The appearance, in the normal family circle, is a hero, a magnifico, a demigod. The substance is a poor mountebank." - Author: H.L. Mencken
