Quotes About Loving Myself And Life

"It has made me better loving you... it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I cant think of anything better. Its just as when one has been trying to spell out a book in the twilight, and suddenly the lamp comes in. I had been putting out my eyes over the book of life, and finding nothing to reward me for my pains; but now that I can read it properly I see that its a delightful story." - Author: Henry James

Quotes About House Music

"I tried to sing Whats Going On with Amy Winehouse once at an old cinema in the West End.

Quotes About Poetry By Robert Frost

"The best answer I can give is that poetry is all about the effect it has on a reader, and Robert Frost was very, very good at that.

Quotes About Fake Items

"Inside the room there sat a rocker, which she sat on, and which had rocked her while she sipped the beer, because in spite of herself she had become so giddy to have so quickly relieved her heart that she allowed herself to lean backwards while in the rocker, which had made it possible for the rocker to rock her, although it was not her intention to be so rocked. Also there stood an ironing board with a still hot iron on it that was burning a yellow shift, and there was, among several items that were not as noticeable to the woman, and yet were noticeable enough to at least bear mention, a fake man."I hope you dont mind me asking," said the woman who lived in the room, but then while in her chair she nodded off." - Author: Justin Dobbs

Quotes About Divine Intervention

"One can say that Javert is our conscience. The ever lurking presence of the law and our own condemnation. The tension between who we were and who we are and who we can be. Javert represents that inescapable, shameful past that forever haunts and persues ones conscience. Javert is the man of the law, and... There are no surprises with the law. The principle of retribution is simple and monotonous, like Euclidean logic. Its closed to all alternatives and shut up against divine or human intervention... Indeed, Javert represents the merciless application of the law, the blind Justice that in the end is befuddled by hope and the possibility of redemption without punishment." - Author: Cristiane Serruya

Quotes About Gleam

"I recall this passage as the hour of its first fully coming over me that she was a beautiful liberal creature.

I heard the whole of the air, and it was sweet fresh music, which I was often to hum over.("Sir Edmund Orme")" - Author: Henry James
