Flannery OConnor Quotes

"One of the awful things about writing when you are a Christian is that for you the ultimate reality is the Incarnation, the present reality is the Incarnation, and nobody believes in the Incarnation; that is, nobody in your audience. My audience are the people who think God is dead. At least these are the people I am conscious of writing for."

James Roday Quotes

"I was a strange, dark little dude. I fell in love with horror movies, at a very early age. Somehow, as a first grader, I was able to convince my parents to let me go see stuff like An American Werewolf in London in theaters, so I was headed in that direction anyway."

Ricardo Antonio Chavira Quotes

"My sons the most precious thing to me; hes changed me from being selfish to selfless."

Joy Katz Quotes

"Writing the poems, I came to think that regarding is a form of love, but the regarding is not necessarily accurate. In the poems, people are always misperceiving one another. But misperceptions are a part of being alive to others. You dont need truth or beauty. All you do is perceive. Thats all you need to have loved and lived fully."

Lockes Quotes

"When once we quit the basis of sensation, all is in the wind. To talk of immaterial existences, is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, God, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no God, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise. But I believe that I am supported in my creed of Materialism by the Lockes, the Tracys, and the Stewarts (Letter to John Adams Monticello, Aug. 15, 1820)."

Adolph S Ochs Quotes

Lisa Unger Quotes

"It was fear. Fear that, after all the years of protecting his health, his heart, his mind, setting bedtimes and boundaries, giving warnings about strangers and looking both ways before crossing the street, it wouldnt be enough. Fear that, as he stood on the threshold of adulthood, forces beyond their control would take him down a path where they could no longer reach him. Fear that hed be seduced by something ugly and would choose it. And that there would be nothing they could do but let him go."

Norman O Brown Quotes

"The view only changes for the lead dog."

Chris Burke Quotes

"Being a son, brother, uncle and brother-in-law is all I care about."

Jerry A Coyne Quotes

"...supernatural explanations always mean the end of inquiry: thats the way God wants it, end of story. Science, on the other hand, is never satisfied: our studies of the universe will continue until humans go extinct."

Quotes About Carton

"Its a stark thought that when we die most of us will leave behind uneaten biscuits, unused coffee, half toilet rolls, half cartons of milk in the fridge to go sour; that everyday functional things will outlive us and prove that we werent ready to go; that we werent smart or knowing or heroic; that we were just animals whose animal bodies stopped working without any sort of schedule or any consent from us." - Author: Steven Hall
