Quotes About Invocation

"Wanderess, Wanderess, weave us a story of seduction and ruse. Heroic be the Wanderess, the world be her muse....I jot this phrase of invocation in my old leather-bound notebook on a bright, cold morning at the Café **** in Paris, and with it Im inspired to take the reader back to the time I first met and became acquainted with the girl I call The Wanderess—as well as a famous adventurer named Saul, the Son of Solarus." - Author: Roman Payne

Quotes About Prolific Love

"To the untutored sage, the concentration of population was the prolific mother of all evils, moral no less than physical. He argued that food is good, while surfeit kills; that love is good, but lust destroys; and not less dreaded than the pestilence following upon crowded and unsanitary dwellings was the loss of spiritual power inseparable from too close contact with ones fellow-men." - Author: Charles Alexander Eastman

Quotes About Parenthood Joy

"Parenthood is shit, snot, slime, fear, tears, spit, and spills. Its as intense as combat, which is to say hours of tedium relieved by moments of alarm and flashes of joy to remind you that youre alive. It is intensely practical and profoundly square, even if youre not. Its feeding, wiping, and picking up." - Author: Scott Simon

Quotes About Hidden Truth

"The hidden well-spring of your soul must needs rise and run murmuring to the sea; And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes.But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure;And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line. For self is a sea boundless and measureless. Say not, I have found the truth, but rather, I have found a truth.Say not, I have found the path of the soul.Say rather, I have met the soul walking upon my path.For the soul walks upon all paths.The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals." - Author: Kahlil Gibran

Quotes About Introverted

"There were two books I remember changing my life as a introverted, bookish 14 year old. The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien. One was set in a fantastic world, populated by outlandish characters,tired prose, foul monsters, evil incarnate and a message about losing ones humanity. The other book was about hobbits." - Author: Christopher Odell Homsley

Quotes About Heading To Success

"She was heading for the piano, and something told me that it was her intention to sing old folk songs, a pastime to which, as I have indicated, she devoted not a little of her leisure. She was particularly given to indulgence in this nuisance when her soul had been undergoing an upheaval and required soothing, as of course it probably did at this juncture.My fears were realized. She sang two in rapid succession, and the thought that this sort of thing would be a permanent feature of our married life chilled me to the core." - Author: P.G. Wodehouse

Quotes About Short Beads

"As for the bracelet Mom wore to the funeral, what I did was I converted Dads last voice message into Morse code, and I used sky-blue beads for silence, maroon beads for breaks between letters, violet beads for breaks between words, and long and short pieces of string between the beads for long and short beeps, which are actually called blips, I think, or something. Dad would have known." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About Flower Blooming

"A daffodil bulb will divide and redivide endlessly. Thats why, like the peony, it is one of the few flowers you can find around abandoned farmhouses, still blooming and increasing in numbers fifty years after the farmer and his wife have moved to heaven, or the other place, Boca Raton. If you dig up a clump when no one is nearby and there is no danger of being shot, youll find that there are scores of little bulbs in each clump, the progeny of a dozen or so planted by the farmers wife in 1942. If you take these home, separate them, and plant them in your own yard, within a couple of years, youll have a hundred daffodils for the mere price of a trespassing fine or imprisonment or both. I had this adventure once, and I consider it one of the great cheap thrills of my gardening career. I am not advocating trespassing, especially on my property, but there is no law against having a shovel in the trunk of your car." - Author: Cassandra Danz
