Quotes About Muc

"Sumire was a hopeless romantic, a bit set in her ways - innocent of the ways of the world, to put a nice spin on it. Start her talking and shed go on nonstop, but if she was with someone she didnt get along with - most people in the world, in other words - she barely opened her mouth. She smoked too much, and you could count on her to lose her ticket every time she took the train. Shed get so engrossed in her thoughts at times shed forget to eat, and she was as thin as one of those war orphans in an old Italian film - like a stick with eyes. Id love to show you a photo of her but I dont have any. She hated having her photograph taken - no desire to leave behind for posterity a Portrait of the Artist as a Young (Wo)Man." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Spartans

"The revolt in Asia Minor was snugged out in 494, and the Athenians realized that they had acquired a dangerous enemy. Darius Is first attempt at invasion in 492 was abortive: a huge storm wrecked his fleet. In 491 the Persians demanded earth and water --signs of submission--from the Aegean islands and mainland cities. Many submitted. Athens and Sparta not only stood firm but murdered the Persian ambassadors. The Athenians put them on trial and killed both the ambassadors and their translator for offenses against the Greek language; the Spartans simply thew them down a well." - Author: Alan Ryan

Quotes About Feeling Sad And Blue

"Once upon a raindrop, I landed on Depression. My umbrella broke and broke me with its bones. It hurt but didnt, and it eased my rain. Curious a little afraid, I tried it once again. Bitter feeling, my starburst shrunk with fear. Sadness filled me up and now Im here. Repeat, repeat, feeling numb and blue. Cutting became my flight from Depression to Okay and I pushed through. Though a bad solution, it became the one. Its lasted years, its never done. Once upon a raindrop, I smile and blink a tear. Sometimes my plane flies me back to Depression and cutting then appears. I try and try to stop, but I always round the bend. I can stay on Okay for months, but then I reach an end. Its been a rough road, maybe it will end. Its been a rough road, I know cuttings not my friend. So my starburst searches for solutions, not sure which to choose. And once upon a raindrop, I might land in Happys shoes." - Author: Alysha Speer
