Chuck Pulaski Quotes

"This is for all the people Ill never meet. This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadnt broken my mothers teenage heart. This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hasnt been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be. This is for you."

Mary Virginia Provines Quotes

"Someone has said of books that they are our amplest heritages of thought, and so they are. That doesnt necessarily mean that they must be learned or profound. They are food for the mind and different minds require different foods ; everyone is better for variety. Whatever stimulates the mind feeds it, be it fact, fiction or fable. That is where our responsibility lies ; in knowing what builds good mental blood and brawn, and in dispensing that only. Dont ever let yourself think you havent time to read."

Quotes About Venus And Mars

"Then they wondered if there were men in the stars. Why not? And as creation is harmonious, the inhabitants of Sirius ought to be huge, those of Mars middle-sized, those of Venus very small. Unless it is the same everywhere. There are businessmen, police up there; people trade, fight, dethrone their kings. Some shooting stars suddenly slid past, describing a course in the sky like the parabola of a monstrous rocket. ‘My Word, said Bouvard, ‘look at those worlds disappearing. Pecuchet replied: ‘If our world in its turn danced about, the citizens of the stars would be no more impressed than we are now. Ideas like that are rather humbling. ‘What is the point of it all? ‘Perhaps there isnt a point. ‘Yet… and Pecuchet repeated the word two or three times, without finding anything more to say." - Author: Gustave Flaubert

Quotes About Wanna Be

"They were worried about keeping military families strong. They were worried about the stress and strain of prolonged military service and how it would affect our military readiness the next time a Hitler-wannabe reared his ugly head. As they made a list of pros and cons for sending families overseas, they never imagined that DOD schools would be the best possible solution to nearly every problem they could envision. The most unpredictable phenomena occurred. The DOD literally created a culture of kids whose life experiences were so rich, yet so different from where theyd come from, that as they grew in years the people they most related to, the people they most wanted to be around, were other military kids who had the same shared experience. Military kids became military members—and theyve kept us strong, our families, armed forces, our country, all of us." - Author: Tucker Elliot
