Lois McMaster Bujold Quotes

"Im not getting it all sorted, she worried. Im not getting it right.You are brilliant, the Voice reassured her.It is imperfect.So are all things trapped in time. You are brilliant, nonetheless. How fortunate for Us that We thirst for glorious souls rather than faultless ones, or We should be parched indeed, and most lonely in Our perfect righteousness. Carry on imperfectly, shining Ista."

SA McAuley Quotes

"Your lingering presence erodes me. Heartbeat by heartbeat. Cell by aging cell. Washing away any sense of self I ever had. Intruding into a nothingness Ive struggled to find the pieces to fill. A jar filled with stones, piled with pebbles, topped with sand, only to be left with the knowledge that water, with enough time and persistence, has the power to wash it all away.Your name is on my lips. Frozen. A familiar cadence of syllables that once soothed me. A name I cant speak. Cant think of.Not on this shore, at our lake. Not on this day. When only a year ago, with a foreshadowing that is now ice in my veins, you stood next to me, in this jacket, your hand in mine, so warm, and stared out at this expanse and whispered in awe, "This is what a cold lake looks like."

Mohammed Ali Muhiyaddin Quotes

"There is yet another class that, having found that their own religion not only prevents free thinking but that some of its philosophies are also against some basic social, economic and scientific concepts of life as required by the progressive society, comes to the illogical conclusion that all religions similarly thwart the growth of progressive societies... Such people fall easy prey to materialism and denounce all religions without having any definite idea of any religion at all."

Quotes About Adolin

"Kaladin followed [Shallan]. What else could he do? Explain to Adolin? Yes, princeling. I let your betrothed wander off alone in the darkness to get eaten by a chasmfiend. No, I didnt go with her. Yes, Im a coward." - Author: Brandon Sanderson

Quotes About Hungry For Knowledge

"I walk in the sprinkling rain like a lion. Pretty soon there wont be lions anymore. If I have to die to be a lion Ill die. Im roaring, but in the language of rain and sand: I am invisible, I blend in, and Im not hungry so everyone is safe. I can just observe them, join them, I can admire them, I can pity them and love them. Theyre so pathetically beautiful I could cry. How could I ever forget that this world is gorgeous and interesting? Every little detail is a gateway to huge canyons of knowledge and understanding. And its all so sexy. Nothing is restrained, everything is perfectly, ripely, ravishingly itself, and swollen with signs and information that link it in the web." - Author: Richard Hell

Quotes About Bongs

"But try as Phoebe might to blend with her peers, it felt like bluffing, mouthing the words to a song shed never been taught, always a beat late. At best, she fooled them. But the chance to distinguish herself, impress them in the smallest way, was lost. At her vast public high school Phoebe had felt reduced to a pidgin version of herself, as during "conversations" in French class - Where is the cat? Have you seen the cat? Look! Pierre gives the cat a bath - such was her level of fluency while discussing bongs or bands or how fucked-up someone was at a party." - Author: Jennifer Egan

Quotes About Painting Flowers

"Is there a relative value of beauty? Is evanescence - fleetingness - a necessary element of the thing that most moves us? A shooting star dazzles more than the sun. A child captivates like an elf, but grows into grossness, an ogre, a harpy. A flower splays itself into color - the lilies of the field! - more treasured than any painting of a flower. But of all these things, womens grace, shooting stars, flowers, and paintings, only a painting endures." - Author: Gregory Maguire

Quotes About Admitting Mistakes

"Stop agreeing with everything I say! Its not as if youre going to solve everything by admitting your mistakes. Whether or not you admit then or not, mistakes are mistakes.""Its true," I said. It -was- true." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Demanding Excellence

"There were profound reasons for his attachment to the sea: he loved it because as a hardworking artist he needed rest, needed to escape from the demanding complexity of phenomena and lie hidden on the bosom of the simple and tremendous; because of a forbidden longing deep within him that ran quite contrary to his lifes task and was for that very reason seductive, a longing for the unarticulated and immeasurable, for eternity, for nothingness. To rest in the arms of perfection is the desire of any man intent upon creating excellence; and is not nothingness a form of perfection?" - Author: Thomas Mann

Quotes About Yeshua

"Justification by grace through faith is the theologians learned phrase for what Chesterton once called the furious love of G-d. He is not moody or capricious; He knows no seasons of change. He has a single relentless stance toward us: He loves us. He is the only G-d man has ever heard of who loves sinners. False gods- the gods of human manufacturing- despise sinners, but the Father of (Yeshua) loves all, no matter what they do." - Author: Brennan Manning

Quotes About Easy Life

"In life, everybody faces choices between doing whats popular, easy, and wrong vs. doing whats lonely, difficult, and right. These decisions intensify when you run a company, because the consequences get magnified 1,000 fold. As in life, the excuses for CEOs making the wrong choice are always plentiful." - Author: Ben Horowitz

Quotes About Having Patience

"For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice - no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service." - Author: John Burroughs
