Quotes About Tolerable

"It is perhaps because of the Iranian concept of the home and garden (and not the city or town it is in) as the defining center of life that Iranians find living in a society with such stringent rules of public behavior somewhat tolerable. Iranian society by and large cares very little about what goes on in the homes and gardens of private citizens, but the Islamic government cares very much how its citizens behave once they venture outside their walls." - Author: Hooman Majd

Quotes About Hair Change

"We wanted to take Polaroids of her and all the kids, about eight of them, of all ages, several photos, so we could give some to the family. She grabbed her youngest and asked us to wait. And then like any mother, anywhere in the world—do not let anyone tell you that people are fundamentally different—she combed the childs hair and changed his shirt before letting him pose for the pictures. The second shirt was slightly less dirty than the first. She wanted him to look his best. That mother could have been in Greenwich, Connecticut, as easily as on the steppes of Mongolia." - Author: Jim Rogers

Quotes About Syphilis

"Freneuse is an oddball, an idler, without any aim in life! If you ask me, he has smoked too much opium in the East, and that explains his somnolence, his morbid lethargies. Its the hazardous legacy of bad habits! He has been comprehensively undone; the heavy influence of poisonous opiates never ceases to oppress him. Besides which, his steel-blue eyes are surely the eyes of a smoker of opium. He carries the drunken burden of hemp in his veins. Opium is like syphilis - le Mazel released the word carelessly - it is a thing which stays for years and years in the blood, because the body is unable to purge itself. It must be absorbed, in the long run, by iodide." - Author: Jean Lorrain

Quotes About Funny Guy Friends

"God, could that dopey girl dance. Buddy Singer and his stinking band was playing Just One of Those Things and even they couldnt ruin it entirely. Its a swell song. I didnt try any trick stuff while we danced--I hate a guy that does a lot of show-off tricky stuff on the dance floor--but I was moving her around plenty, and she stayed with me. The funny thing is, I thought she was enjoying it, too, till all of a sudden she came out with this very dumb remark. "I and my girl friends saw Peter Lorre last night," she said. "The movie actor. In person. He was buyin a newspaper. Hes cute.""Youre lucky," I told her. "Youre really lucky. You know that?" She was really a moron. But what a dancer." - Author: J.D. Salinger

Quotes About Hyenas

"If you refuse to entertain a baby cousin, the baby cousin may get bored and entertain itself by wandering off and falling down a well. If you refuse to entertain a pack of hyenas, they may become restless and entertain themselves by devouring you." - Author: Lemony Snicket

Quotes About Capitalism In America

"We must expose to the light of public inquiry those forces which would destroy our country and our way of life. We should pay no attention to the recommendations of men who call the Constitution an eighteenth-century agrarian document-who apologize for capitalism and free enterprise. We should refuse to follow their siren song of increasingly concentrating the powers of government in the chief executive, of delegating American sovereign authority to non-American institutions of the United Nations and pretending that it will bring peace to the world by turning our armed forces over to a United Nations worldwide police force. (Title of Liberty, p. 16.)" - Author: Ezra Taft Benson

Quotes About Me Sms

"For a minute I was convinced she must have handed me the wrong schedule, so I checked the top of the paper. No, thats me. I wasnt sure what the right reaction was in that situation. You know the one, where the universe decides to put its steel-toed boot up your ass yet again. Crying was out of the question and a screaming hissy-fit laced with maniacal laughter and profanity was, most definitely, off the table, which left me with my only other option‌—‌stunned silence." - Author: Katja Millay

Quotes About Leather Boots

"He was wearing brown leather trousers, a darker brown leather vest, and a silk shirt that matched my dress. The sleeves were almost piratical in style, and the collar was unlaced. His boots were the same shade as his vest, a few shades lighter than his hair."Uh," I said again, before managing. "Werent you wearing that the last time you came to Court?""She always dresses me in some variation of this attire," said Tybalt. "I cant tell whether she likes the look of it, or whether shes trying to make a point. This would have been a stagehands garb, once upon a time, and nothing suited for a King.""Uh," I said for a third time.Seeing my distress, Tybalt smirked, leaned in, and murmured in my ear, "I have a disturbing assortment of leather trousers, thanks to her. Id be happy to show you, if you like." - Author: Seanan McGuire
