Brigid Pasulka Quotes

"[The Pigeon had learned something about [women] from his eight sisters, and if over the years he had absorbed only this one thing, it would stand as vindication that a boy does not suffer needlessly from growing up in a house with eight sisters. That thing was that a womans heart is not bought by the currency of a mans emotion for her. A womans heart is won over by her own feelings for herself when he just happens to be around ..."

Stephanie Barron Quotes

"...the long blue shadows of afternoon advanced before me like cheerful ghosts of last summers growth, dancing past the withered flower borders and the stiff hedges to fall at the feet of a stone nymph, her cascade of water frozen in her urn."

Margaret Kim Peterson Quotes

"The trend in modern American culture is toward ever more individualized eating... and with every food added to the list of things one does not eat, the shorter becomes the list of people with whom one can enjoy table fellowship... for those of us whose health permits, partaking readily of whatever is offered can be a way of affirming that eating together is at least as important as whatever it is that is eaten."

"Engineer: You can wait over there, across the street at the Orpheum.Eli: No, Ill wait here.Engineer: Bar is about ready to open.Eli: Ill wait here.Engineer: You dont trust me, do you?Eli: Uh... Ill wait here."

Arnaud Desjardins Quotes

"Et ce qui est saisissant, quand on le voit avec des yeux ouverts, c´est à quel point nous autres, êtres humains, nous n´apprenons pratiquement rien dans l´existence. On n´en connaît pas plus long a soixante ans qu´à vingt. On peut "savoir" mais je ne parle pas du savoir. A force de lire des livres et de passer des diplômes, vous pouvez aquérir un immense savoir mais la Connaissance au vrai sens du mot est une fonction de l´être. On connaît une chose parce qu´on l´incarne, parce qu´on l´a dans le sang."

Samuel Jackson Quotes

"If you do not have courage, you may not have the opportunity to use any of your other virtues."

Quotes About Chinese Art

"The Italians and Spanish, the Chinese and Vietnamese see food as part of a larger, more essential and pleasurable part of daily life.

Quotes About So Called Best Friends

"So why havent you called?" I ask her now.She looks uncomfortable. "I told you," she says, twirling the end of her braid around her finger. "School stuff.""Bullshit." She looks at me and opens her mouth, probably to lie again. But then she changes her mind. "I didnt know what to say." Her voice catches, so I know shes telling the truth. "And besides, you didnt call me, either." "Because you didnt call me!" Doesnt she know that the person who got kicked out of school (me) doesnt have to call the one who didnt(her)? She should have called to check up on me, to see how I was doing. She should have come over with lemonades and ice cream, keeping me company, helping me nurse my broken heart. Thats what best friends do. Its so common its cliché." - Author: Lauren Barnholdt

Quotes About Taste And Smell

"Revere your senses; dont degrade them with drugs, with depression, with willful oblivion. Try to notice something new every day, Eustace said. Pay attention to even the most modest of daily details. Even if youre not in the woods, be aware at all times. Notice what food tastes like, notice what the detergent aisle in the supermarket smells like and recognize what those hard chemical smells do to your senses; notice what bare feet feel like; pay attention every day to the vital insights that mindfulness can bring. And take care of all things, of every single thing there is - your body, your intellect, your spirit, your neighbors, and this planet. Dont pollute your soul with apathy or spoil your health with junk food any more than you would deliberately contaminate a clean river with industrial sludge. You can never become a real man if you have a careless and destructive attitude, Eustace said, but maturity will follow mindfulness even as day follows night." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Not being a bitch means since Eve ate that apple, we will forever have to pay for her bitchiness with complacence, obedience, acceptance, closed eyes, and opened legs." - Author: Margaret Cho
