Karen Russell Quotes

"Blah! Oglivy yells, pushing Emma and me into a pile of wet leaves. We roll around, a red flail of limbs and hysterical laughter. We are all raccoon-drunk on moonlight and bloodshed and the heady, under blossom smell of the forest. I breathe in the sharp odor of cold stars and skunk, thinking, This is the happiest I have ever been. I wish somebody would murder a sheep every night of my life. It feels like we are all embarking on a nightmare together. And will stop it in progress! I think, yanking Emma and Ogli to their feet and hurting towards the lake. We will make sure that the rest of the herd escapes Heimdalls fate, we will...."

Joao Ricardo Pedro Quotes

"Dona Laura, ao ver a casa encher-se de bocas - e pressentido que isso de golpes de Estado era coisa para levar o seu tempo -, apressou-se, de faca e alguidar, em direcção às capoeiras, donde regressou com as duas primeiras vítimas da revolução. E ainda não tinha soado as duas da tarde quando, num exercício ostensivo de poder, como se quisesse deixar bem claro o que quer que estivesse a acontecer no País, ali em casa tudo permanecia na mesma, desligou o rádio e a televisão, abriu as portadas que davam para o jardim e anunciou que a canja estava na mesa."

Quotes About Sunday Lunch

"She remembered one of her boyfriends asking, offhandedly, how many books she read in a year. "A few hundred," she said."How do you have the time?" he asked, gobsmacked.She narrowed her eyes and considered the array of potential answers in front of her. Because I dont spend hours flipping through cable complaining theres nothing on? Because my entire Sunday is not eaten up with pre-game, in-game, and post-game talking heads? Because I do not spend every night drinking overpriced beer and engaging in dick-swinging contests with the other financirati? Because when I am waiting in line, at the gym, on the train, eating lunch, I am not complaining about the wait/staring into space/admiring myself in reflective surfaces? I am reading!"I dont know," she said, shrugging." - Author: Eleanor Brown

Quotes About Conformity

"We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; its an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish." - Author: Ken Robinson

I just needed more sleep." - Author: Alyxandra Harvey

Quotes About Mother And Son Relationships

"The fog turned a strange yellow, then orange, then black. The gilded winged statue Victory at Buckingham Palace retreated into mist. St. Pauls was a hazy outline, ghostlike in the gloom. La Traviata at the Sadlers Wells theatre was terminated midway because the audience could no longer see the singers on stage. Pedestrians noticed how everything below the waist disappeared. Knees, shoes, dogs became indistinguishable. The Great Smog was days and nights of people and things passing out of sight and existence. It seemed a fitting time for a mother to evaporate." - Author: Kyo Maclear

Quotes About Needs Of Others

"First we must understand that all of the worlds deceptions flow from the belief that love is primarily for the fulfillment and comfort of the self.

True love is selfless. It gives; it sacrifices; it dies to its own needs." - Author: Joshua Harris
