[The Thought Of Only Being A Creature Of The Present And Past Was Troubling. I Longed For A Future Too, With Hope In It. The Desire To Be Free, Awakened My Determination To Act, To Think, And To Speak.]

Hans Matheson Quotes

"Playing characters who are wonderful and beautiful is hard because you dont feel like that most of the time... well, I dont. Its like this whole heart-throb nonsense. Its flattering, but thats not how I feel in the morning. Its something that goes with the job."

William H Calvin Quotes

"It takes a heavy commitment to quality education for all to avoid that stratification of society, those needless degrees of separation. But even the present-day United States has lost what commitment it used to have to free education of high quality. Anyone reading the annual surveys of science literacy (another example: fewer than half of Americans know that the earth orbits the sun once a year) has to wonder how badly most people are going to be left behind, further along into the 21st century, whether they too will become "stubborn, apathetic, and perverse" toward a scientific and technological world they must view as magical, beyond their comprehension, accessible only via the right incantations."

Quotes About Misunderstood Friends

"The High Cost of ServanthoodJesus warned, however, that this life of servanthood is not lived without cost. He said, "The servant is not greater than his Lord" (John 13:16) and, if the persecuted and hated Him, we can expect no better treatment. In 2 Timothy 3:12 Paul wrote, " All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persectution," so this is also the cost we as servants must be willing to pay. This is so difficult for us to accept in our world of man-pleasing, "Im OK, youre OK" Christianity. No one wants to be disliked, hated or misunderstood---especially by family, friends and loved ones. But this of often exactly the price to be paid by anyone seriously wanting to follow Jesus into a life of servanthood." - Author: K.P. Yohannan

Quotes About Enfants

"Le serpent qui danseQue jaime voir, chère indolente,De ton corps si beau,Comme une étoffe vacillante,Miroiter la peau!Sur ta chevelure profondeAux acres parfums,Mer odorante et vagabondeAux flots bleus et bruns,Comme un navire qui séveilleAu vent du matin,Mon âme rêveuse appareillePour un ciel lointain.Tes yeux où rien ne se révèleDe doux ni damer,Sont deux bijoux froids où se mêlentLor avec le fer.A te voir marcher en cadence,Belle dabandon,On dirait un serpent qui danseAu bout dun bâton.Sous le fardeau de ta paresseTa tête denfantSe balance avec la mollesseDun jeune éléphant,Et ton corps se penche et sallongeComme un fin vaisseauQui roule bord sur bord et plongeSes vergues dans leau.Comme un flot grossi par la fonteDes glaciers grondants,Quand leau de ta bouche remonteAu bord de tes dents,Je crois boire un vin de bohême,Amer et vainqueur,Un ciel liquide qui parsèmeDétoiles mon coeur!" - Author: Charles Baudelaire

Quotes About Being Successful And Having Haters

"Among the beliefs I held about the world was that being beautiful should not matter to a woman, because it was one of those things that would go away-- your beauty would go away,and there wouldnt be anything you could do to bring it back." - Author: Jamaica Kincaid

Quotes About Taken

"Before being taken to the Morgue, the body is left for a while on the embankment so they can try reviving it. A massive crowd gathers round the body. Those unable to see because they are at the back jostle those in front as best they can. Each thinks: "I wouldnt be drowning myself, not I." They pity the young suicide, admire him, but do not imitate him. He, however, found it quite natural to give himself death, deeming nothing on earth able to content him, and aspiring higher." - Author: Comte de Lautréamont

Quotes About Soup And Love

"Inside the narrow skull of the miner pinned beneath the fallen timber, there lives a world. Parents, friends, a home, the hot soup of evening, songs sung on feast days, loving kindness and anger, perhaps even a social consciousness and a great universal love, inhabit that skull. By what are we to measure the value of a man? His ancestor once drew a reindeer on the wall of a cave; and two hundred thousand years later that gesture still radiates. It stirs us, prolongs itself in us. Mans gestures are an eternal spring. Though we [may] die for it, we shall bring up that miner from his shaft. Solitary he may be, universal he surely is." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Silly Love

"Inspiration do not come and cannot be found, it has to exist - somewhere, somehow. Do believe that what you are doing is the most important thing in this world, and do believe that your words can be magical. Because I know they can be and I know they are. If you feel that you are lost in your own mind, dont think, just write. Sometimes we have to erase our thoughts and memories to gain enough strength to be able to write down our inner thoughts. If you dont know what it is, if you think its ridiculous or silly, youre definitely on the right way. Sometimes you will hate your words and sometimes you will love them. This is the fun part of greatness in which the other part definitely will be your devil. Remember; with greatness comes obstacles." - Author: Liv Christine Hoem
