Kathleen Flinn Quotes

"You cant hurry love, and you cant rush puff pastry, either. You can knead too much, and you can be too needy. Always, warmth is what brings pastry to rise. Chemistry creates something amazing; coupled with care and heat, it works some kind of magic to create this satisfying, welcoming, and nourishing thing that is the base of life."

Hermann Maier Quotes

HM Forester Quotes

"Now, sorcery rules the world. Of course, most dont call it sorcery; indeed, many would be horrified by such a notion. Instead, they use words like ideology, politics, defence, security, patriotism, commerce, industry, marketing, consumerism and belief. But where there is power-seeking, especially power over others or for oneself, though also over oneself, and be it wittingly or unwittingly conjured up, make no mistake: there is sorcery afoot. It just comes in different shades and colours, thats all."

Karen White Quotes

"Me? Rebuild" I shook my head."First off, I dont know anything about construction or reconstruction. And second, have you been down there? Have you seen it? So many people havent moved back or rebuilt, and I totally get it. Why invest all that time and money when each hurricane season brings a new threat?"Aimee regarded me with a steady blue gaze. "Why build skyscrapers in San Francisco that might be knocked down by an earthquake? Or why build farms in Kansas and Oklahoma that might get blown away by a tornado?" She snorted, and it seemed so uncharacteristic for the elegant old woman that I almost laughed. "Where did they want us to go, anyway? I figure if were still breathing, then were meant to keep going. So we rebuild. We start over. Its just what we do."

Victor Salva Quotes

"When I was about 13 or 14, I had an English teacher who made a deal with me that I could get out of doing all of the years regular work if I would write a short story a week and on Friday read it to the class."

Quotes About The Art Of Weaving

"He played the opening bars again, opening a door for her, inviting her to join. She started quietly, almost voiceless, only a thin string of sound weaving herself into his tune, as if her voice were just another string on the guitar between his fingers. She had to be careful, so no one saw the changes on her face. But she didnt want to be careful; she couldnt be careful. He played and she sang to him, and inside her more and more blocks of ice began to melt, cracking and falling into the frozen sea between them. She sang of all the things that were happening to her and him, the world that collapsed over both of them, the things that might be in store, if only they dared to believe it was possible." - Author: David Grossman

Quotes About Character And Personality

"The old concept of chronological, orderly, symmetrical development of character died when it was discovered that the unconscious motivations are entirely at odds with fabricated conventions. Human beings do not grow in perfect symmetry. They oscillate, expand, contract, backtrack, arrest themselves, retrogress, mobilize, atrophy in part, proceed erratically according to experience and traumas. Some aspects of the personality mature, others do not. Some live in the past, some in the present. Some people are futuristic characters, some are cubistic, some are hard-edged, some geometric, some abstract, some impressionistic, some surrealistic!" - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Leaving Her Lonely

"They tried picturing leaving Uncle Monty and living by themselves, trying to find jobs and take care of each other. It was a very lonely prospect. The Baudelaire children sat in sad silence awhile, and they were each thinking the same thing: They wished that their parents had never been killed in the fire, and that their lives had never been turned topsy-turvy the way they had. If only the Baudelaire parents were still alive, the youngsters wouldnt even have heard of Count Olaf, let alone have him settling into their home and undoubtedly making evil plants" - Author: Lemony Snicket

Quotes About Faded Dreams

"The man of my dreams is almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of in her most secret and deepest part of her heart. I could almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? Forgive me, Ive never known this feeling. Ive lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder that I fail to recognize it? You brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way I can tell you how my life has changed? Anyway at all, to let you know what sweetness you have given me? Theres so much to say-- and I cant find the words-- except for these... I love you. That is what I would say to him if he were really here." - Author: Richard Matheson
