J M Coetzee Quotes

"My response, a dubious and hesitant one, is that it has been and may continue to be, in the time that is left to me, more productive to live out the question than to try to answer it in abstract terms."

Rolf Peterson Quotes

"Wolves directly affect the entire ecosystem, not just moose populations, their main prey, because less moose equals more tree growth"

Michael Coren Quotes

"People actually occupy around 3 per cent of the earths land surface. If 1,200 square feet was given to every person in the world, they would still all fit into an area the size of Texas - whether the Texans would object is an altogether different issue!"

Nathan Reese Maher Quotes

"I rouse Emily to our guests, as she finishes off our fifteenth snowman by setting the head atop its torso. She stands limp at my direction, pointing out the coming shadows and I cannot help but hear a muffled sigh as she decapitates her latest creation with a single push of her hand."

Sylvia Day Quotes

"Me moriría si perdía a Gideon, pero me moriría de todos modos si me perdía a mí misma."

Franz Rosenzweig Quotes

"Love is only surpassing sweet when it is directed toward a mortal object, and the secret of this ultimate sweetness only is defined by the bitterness of death. Thus the white peoples of the world foresee a time when their land with its rivers and mountains still lies under heaven as it does today, but other people dwell there; when their language is entombed in books, and their laws and customs have lost their living power."

John C Maxwell Quotes

"Enlightenment writer and philosopher Voltaire likened life to a game of cards. Players must accept the cards dealt to them. However, once they have those cards in hand, they alone choose how they will play them. They decide what risks and actions to take."

Gregg Allman Quotes

Sylvia Ashton Warner Quotes

"Love has the quality of informing almost everything - even ones work."

Quotes About Being The One For Me

"I feel all agitated, like one of those snow globes you see resting peacefully on shop counters. I was perfectly happy being an ordinary, dull little Swiss village. But now Jack Harpers come and shaken me up, and there are snowflakes all over the place, whirling around until I dont know what I think anymore. And bits of glitter, too. Tiny bits of shiny, secret excitement." - Author: Sophie Kinsella

Quotes About Edvard

"My son, Sam, at three and a half, had these keys to a set of plastic handcuffs, and one morning he intentionally locked himself out of the house. I was sitting on the couch reading the newspaper when I heard him stick his plastic keys into the doorknob and try to open the door. Then I heard him say, "Oh, shit." My whole face widened, like the guy in Edvard Munchs Scream. After a moment I got up and opened the front door."Honey," I said, "whatd you just say?""I said, Oh, shit," he said."But, honey, thats a naughty word. Both of us have absolutely got to stop using it. Okay?"He hung his head for a moment, nodded, and said, "Okay, Mom." Then he leaned forward and said confidentially, "But Ill tell you why I said shit." I said Okay, and he said, "Because of the fucking keys!" - Author: Anne Lamott

Quotes About Four Elements

"Ignorance, Arrogance, Fear and Laziness are the biggest hurdles to success. From what I have seen in my twenty-plus years in and around the business, those who continue to learn, watch for the changes and trends, never get too cocky, push through with courage, and truly commit to their goals, always succeed. This went for me as well. Every time I failed, one of those first four elements played a role in the failure." - Author: Loren Weisman

Quotes About Every Girl Being Beautiful

"It was the gift that every girl dreams of, to be dead long enough for your parents to realize how meaningless their lives were without you, how they were suddenly and at once deeply sorrowed at all of the horrible injustices they caused you, how they had truly never appreciated your natural gifts of beauty and grace, being that their beautiful angel would have such a short time on earth and should have spent that time driving the restored 1965 convertible Mustang she had openly AND PUBLICLY desired. But nope, she spent her last, short, fleeting moments driving a 1980 Chevy Citation, every so clearly a GRANDMA car, with fake red-velvet upholstery, a hatchback, and an interior that smelled like spoiled milk and sometimes meat. Being temporarily run over by a car was the best present I had ever received, and I didnt even have to do anything dramatic to get it, like write a note or buy some rope." - Author: Laurie Notaro

Quotes About United States

"If the USA doesnt start learning how to put personal egos aside for the sustainability of a nation, then these "mighty" United States will be no better than the politically divided commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Where progress is slowed because each party thinks any idea from the other party must be stupid or without validity and Independence has become a distant dream squashed by corruption. I suggest politicians go back to kindergarten to learn the basics in decent humanity. The notions of sharing and respect obviously didnt stick the first time." - Author: Cristina Marrero

Quotes About Spell Check

"Normal is over rated, and so is spelling.You want perfection? Go out and buy a spell check, but know this: Spellcheck wont keep you warm at night or love you unconditionaly. I will stick to being abnormal and a bad speller. Makes life more interesting. After all, what fun is there in being normal or perfect?" - Author: Cristina Marrero
