Aditi Shankardass Quotes

"Far too often, children with developmental disorders are diagnosed solely on the basis of their observable behavior, slotted into broad diagnostic pigeonholes and provided generalized treatments that may not always meet their specific needs."

Arne Garborg Quotes

"For money you can have everything it is said. No, that is not true. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; soft beds, but not sleep; knowledge but not intelligence; glitter, but not comfort; fun, but not pleasure; acquaintances, but not friendship; servants, but not faithfulness; grey hair, but not honor; quiet days, but not peace. The shell of all things you can get for money. But not the kernel. That cannot be had for money."

Quotes About Wet

"I never told anyone about waking in the night to him standing over me with a knife. It was small, one of my switchblades, chosen for carving.His seeping dick twitched as he bent toward me, his slick left hand went down on my sternum, the other holding the knife like a scapel. "Whatre you gonna do?" I asked, reaching for him, my fingers closing around his hard, wet length."Carve my name on your skin so everyone knows youre mine." - Author: Mary Calmes

Quotes About Cloaked

"Id forgotten how enlivening it could feel, seeing clearly and far. Aridity frees light. It also unleashes grandeur. The earth here wasnt cloaked in forest, nor draped in green. Green was pastoral, peaceful, mild. Desert beauty was "sublime" in the way that the romantic poets had used the word- not peaceful dales but rugged mountain faces, not reassuring but daunting nature, the earths skin and haunches, its spines and angles arching prehistorically in sunlight." - Author: Julene Bair

Quotes About Contest Prep

"we cannot calculate our important contests, adventures, and great loves to the end. The only thing we can really count on is getting surprised. No matter how much preparation we do, in the real tests of our lives, well be in unfamiliar terrain. Conditions might not be calm or reasonable. It may feel as though the whole world is stacked against us. This is when we have to perform better than we ever conceived of performing. I believe the key is to have prepared in a manner that allows for inspiration, to have laid the foundation for us to create under the wildest pressures we ever imagined." - Author: Josh Waitzkin

Quotes About Learning To Forgive And Forget

"To become fully human means learning to turn my gratitude for being alive into some concrete common good. It means growing gentler toward human weakness. It means practicing forgiveness of my and everyone elses hourly failures to live up to divine standards. It means learning to forget myself on a regular basis in order to attend to the other selves in my vicinity. It means living so that "Im only human" does not become an excuse for anything. It means receiving the human condition as blessing and not curse, in all its achingly frail and redemptive reality." - Author: Brené Brown

Quotes About Dogs Comforting

"The revelation that there was nothing "special" about humanity didnt shock her. Not specifically. Shed always been cynical about that sort of thing. The idea that reality was all too big to even quantify in any meaningful way didnt disturb her much either. Except, deep down, shed assumed there was some inherent logic at work. Like ricocheting molecules congealing into planets and stars, dogs and cats. At least the made sense, even if it wasnt very comforting. At least it put things in neat little boxes with neat little labels that she didnt always understand but could rely on in terms of familiarity." - Author: A. Lee Martinez

Quotes About Being Too Dependent

"Bjarne Møller, my former boss, says people like me always choose the line of most resistance. Its in what he calls our accursed nature. Thats why we always end up on our own. I dont know. I like being alone. Perhaps I have grown to like my self-image of being a loner, too....I think you have to find something about yourself that you like in order to survive. Some people say being alone is unsociable and selfish. But youre independent and you dont drag others down with you, if thats the way youre heading. Many people are afraid of being alone. But it made me feel strong, free and invulnerable." - Author: Jo Nesbø

Quotes About Bourbon Whiskey

"Moving on was always the end plan.New York,he remembered, was a fair distance away.It should be far enough. As for tonight, he was going to have a shot of whiskey in his tea to help smooth out the edges. Then by God, he was going to sleep if he had to bash himself over the head to accpmplish it.And he wasnt going to give Keeley another thought.The knock on the door had him cursing under his breath.Though shed been doing well,his first worry was that the mare with bronchitis had taken a bad turn.He was already reaching for the boots hed shed when he called out."Come in,its open.Is it Lucy then?""No,its Keeley." One brow lifted, she stood framed in the door. "But if youre expecting Lucy,I can go."The boots dangled from his fingertips, and those fingertips had gone numb. "Lucys a horse," he managed to say. "She doesnt often come knocking on my door." - Author: Nora Roberts

Quotes About Vegan Food

"Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. Its healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter Ive worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold. Oh, Ill accomodate them, Ill rummage around for something to feed them, for a vegetarian plate, if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine." - Author: Anthony Bourdain

Quotes About World Aids Day

"We are focusing on the small details and hiding the misery in the world. Look at the smoker and we miss global warming, war, and the crap we eat--not the bad guys but smoking. I smoke and they talk about cancer, I eat and they talk about cholesterol, I make love, its AIDS. Before AIDS and cholesterol and cancer theres the pleasure of making love and eating and smoking. I have to die someday, so if the thing that gave me pleasure all of my life kills me instead of me going under a truck, thats fine. Besides, why should I live so that when I die I give fresh meat to the worms? I hope that I am rotted and they dont want to eat me. F@#$ck the worms." - Author: Marjane Satrapi

Quotes About Colonel Brandon

"But I must object to your dooming Colonel Brandon and his wife to the constant confinement of a sick chamber, merely because he chanced to complain yesterday (a very cold damp day) of a slight rheumatic feel in one of his shoulders." "But he talked of flannel waistcoats," said Marianne; "and with me a flannel waistcoat is invariably connected with the aches, cramps, rheumatisms, and every species of ailment that can afflict the old and the feeble." - Author: Jane Austen
