Larry Doyle Quotes

"Dennis had imagined that he and Beth would be one of those couples who never quarreled, that when they werent kissing they would be laughing or lying in each others arms, serenely, deliriously happy. He could never have imagined that she would make him so crazy angry he would scream at her in front of their friends. But in that instant, he learned a little about love."

"After forty years of selling wholesale industrial deodorizing supplies, one establishment is forced to open its doors to the public.In the lingo of the trade, a salesman explains why their large institution buyers have gone elsewhere.Who wants to stand downwind of the League o Nations every time some freshman with a bladder infection pulls a Nebuchadnezzar?"

Thomas Cathcart Quotes

"A traveling salesman was driving in the country when his car broke down. He hiked several miles to a farmhouse and asked the farmer if there was a place he could stay overnight. "Sure," said the farmer, "My wife died several years ago, and my two daughters are twenty-one and twenty-three, but theyre off to college, and Im all by myself, so I have lots of room to put you up." Hearing this, the salesman turned around and started walking back toward the highway.The farmer called after him, "Didnt you hear what I said? I have lots of room.""I heard you," said the salesman, "but I think Im in the wrong joke."

Quotes About Morgon

"I came back.""Suppose you hadnt?""I came back! Why cant you understand, instead of thinking as though your brains are made of oak. Athols son, with his hair and eyes and vision -""No!" Tristan said sharply. Eliards fist, raised and knotted, halted in midair. Morgon dropped his face again against his knees. Eliard shut his eyes."Why do you think Im so angry?" he whispered."I know.""Do you? Even - even after six months I still expect to hear her voice unexpectedly, or see him coming out of the barn, or in from the fields at dusk. And you? How will I know, now, that when you leave Hed, youll come back? You could have died in that tower for the sake of a stupid crown and left us watching for the ghost of you, too. Swear youll never do anything like that again.""I cant.""You can."Morgon raised his head, looked at Eliard. "How can I make one promise to you and another to myself? But I swear this: I will always come back.""How can you -""I swear it." - Author: Patricia A. McKillip

Quotes About Back Roads

"Quiet friend who has come so far,feel how your breathing makes more space around you.Let this darkness be a bell towerand you the bell. As you ring,what batters you becomes your strength.Move back and forth into the change.What is it like, such intensity of pain?If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.In this uncontainable night,be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,the meaning discovered there.And if the world has ceased to hear you,say to the silent earth: I flow.To the rushing water, speak: I am." - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

Quotes About Friends Teasing You

"There came an awful day when I picked up the phone and knew at once, as one does with some old friends even before they speak, that it was Edward. He sounded as if he were calling from the bottom of a well. I still thank my stars that I didnt say what I nearly said, because the good professors phone pals were used to cheering or teasing him out of bouts of pessimism and insecurity when he would sometimes say ridiculous things like: I hope you dont mind being disturbed by some mere wog and upstart. The remedy for this was not to indulge it but to reply with bracing and satirical stuff which would soon get the gurgling laugh back into his throat. But Im glad I didnt say, What, Edward, splashing about again in the waters of self-pity? because this time he was calling to tell me that he had contracted a rare strain of leukemia. Not at all untypically, he used the occasion to remind me that it was very important always to make and keep regular appointments with ones physician." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Flatlands

"In the Carolinas they say "hill people" are different from "flatlands people," and as a native Kentuckian with more mountain than flatlands blood, Im inclined to agree. This was one of the theories Id been nursing all the way from San Francisco. Unlike Porterville or Hollister, Bass Lake was a mountain community ... and if the old Appalachian pattern held, the people would be much slower to anger or panic, but absolutely without reason or mercy once the fat was in the fire. Like the Angels, they would tend to fall back in an emergency on their own native sense of justice -- which bears only a primitive resemblance to anything written in law books. I thought the mountain types would be far more tolerant of the Angels noisy showboating, but -- compared to their flatlands cousins -- much quicker to retaliate in kind at the first evidence of physical insult or abuse." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Tired Moms

"Here it is undeveloped, a roll of film with all its mysteries locked up. I never took it anyplace, just left it waiting in a drawer dreaming of stars. That was our time, to see if Lottie Carson was who we thought she was, all those shots we took, cracking up, kissing with our mouths open, laughing, but we never finished it. We thought we had time, running after her, jumping on the bus and trying to glimpse her dimple through the tired nurses arguing in scrubs and the moms on the phone with the groceries in the laps of the kids in the strollers. We hid behind the mailboxes and lampposts half a block away as she kept moving through her neighborhood, where Ive never been, the sky getting dark on only the first date, thinking all the while wed develop it later." - Author: Daniel Handler

Quotes About Point Fingers

"I believe in strong women. I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesnt need to hide behind her husbands back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you dont play victim, you dont make yourself look pitiful, you dont point fingers. You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart." - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About Inspirational Visions

"Weve been surrounded by images of space our whole lives, from the speculative images of science fiction to the inspirational visions of artists to the increasingly beautiful pictures made possible by complex technologies.
