Neil Ansell Quotes

"One late-autumn day I opened the back door to fetch some water, and there was a young hare sat on my back step. Save for the twitching of its nose, it froze in position as if I had surprised it as it was about to knock. It was already the size of a full-grown rabbit, and its black-tipped ears were longer than any rabbits would ever be. I stood there and waited for it to flush. After a while I began to doubt that it would, and squatted down to its level for a closer look, eye to eye. It stared at me apparently unconcerned, chewing silently, with bulging eyes that were such a rich golden colour they were almost orange, with black depths like the keyhole of a door to another world."

Bob Considine Quotes

"Call it vanity, call it arrogant presumption, call it what you wish, but I would grope for the nearest open grave if I had no newspaper to work for, no need to search for and sometimes find the winged word that just fits, no keen wonder over what each unfolding day may bring."

Vincent Torres Quotes

"Youve captured my flag but I captured your imagination. Its true you regulate what I grow, regulate what i know, and to pray or to play I got to pay you a fee, pero we both know that you wish you could dance like me."

James Donald Quotes

"Back then when Chomsky and Herman wrote, the left, myself among them, all knew that something terrible was happening in Vietnam, though most now claim to remember otherwise."

Quotes About Background Noise

"Eventually the consumer will come to appreciate the editorial point of view of every different brand. User-generated content without editorial oversight will simply be background noise." - Author: Michael Eisner

Quotes About Breathing Easy

"Country jakes are always whining about the sanctity of states rights and individual freedoms. Yet when a couple of queers want to get married in Massachusetts, half the South goes apeshit with homemade posters and fire-breathing sermons. And when a few million concerned residents of states thousands of miles away decide they want to stop destroying their landscape in the name of corporate mammon and consumer stupidity, the South sends out its greasy merchants of avarice to cajole, bribe, hector, lie, intimidate, and "lobby" until the seed of their plantation mentality is protected and their gluttonous mouths are once again filled with the jizz of the master caste before whom they kneel like Bourbon Street whores on Navy payday." - Author: Chuck Thompson

Quotes About Energia

"Os homens de espírito livre, que vivem só para o conhecimento, em breve acharão ter alcançado a sua definitiva posição relativamente à sociedade e ao Estado e, por exemplo, dar-se-ão de bom grado por satisfeitos com um pequeno emprego ou com uma fortuna que chegue à justa para viver; pois arranjar-se-ão para viver de maneira que uma grande tansformação dos bens materiais, até mesmo um derrube da ordem política, não deite também abaixo a sua vida. Em todas essas coisas eles gastam a menor energia possível, de modo a poderem imergir, com todas as forças reunidas e, por assim dizer, com um grande fôlego, no elemento do conhecimento. Podem, assim, ter esperança de mergulhar profundamente e também de, talvez, verem bem até ao fundo." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Fuse

"In the case of Michel Angelo we have an artist who with brush and chisel portrayed literally thousands of human forms; but with this peculiarity, that while scores and scores of his male figures are obviously suffused and inspired by a romantic sentiment, there is hardly one of his female figures that is so,—the latter being mostly representative of woman in her part as mother, or sufferer, or prophetess or poetess, or in old age, or in any aspect of strength or tenderness, except that which associates itself especially with romantic love. Yet the cleanliness and dignity of Michel Angelos male figures are incontestable, and bear striking witness to that nobility of the sentiment in him, which we have already seen illustrated in his sonnets." - Author: Edward Carpenter

Quotes About Southern Dialect

"I find standard American the hardest. It really fits in a different place in your mouth. Southern, I find the easiest. If you talk to a dialect coach and you get sort of technical, where an English person keeps their voice in their throat, a Southern person does the same, and its got the same sort of music to talking." - Author: Juno Temple

Quotes About Sidewalk

"A boy trudged down the sidewalk dragging a fishing pole behind him. A man stood waiting with his hands on his hips. Summertime, and his children played in the front yard with their friend, enacting a strange little drama of their own invention. It was fall, and his children fought on the sidewalk in front of Mrs. Duboses. . . . Fall, and his children trotted to and fro around the corner, the days woes and triumphs on their faces. They stopped at an oak tree, delighted, puzzled, apprehensive. Winter, and his children shivered at the front gate, silhouetted against a blazing house. Winter, and a man walked into the street, dropped his glasses, and shot a dog. Summer, and he watched his childrens heart break. Autumn again, and Boos children needed him. Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough." - Author: Harper Lee

Quotes About Good Night Dreams

"A broken heart in real life isnt half as dreadful as it is in books. Its a good deal like a bad tooth, though you wont think THAT a very romantic simile. It takes spells of aching and gives you a sleepless night now and then, but between times it lets you enjoy life and dreams and echoes and peanut candy as if there were nothing the matter with it." - Author: L.M. Montgomery

Quotes About Hajime

"Hajime," she began, "the sad truth is that some things cant go backwards. Once they start going forward, no matter what you do, they cant go back to the way they were. If one little thing goes awry, then thats how it will stay forever." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Nurturing A Child

"A stable and nurturing childhood is essential for the healthy psycho-emotional and spiritual development of a human being. While we may understand what is supposed to happen to us physically, we must begin to better understand what happens to children mentally, emotionally and spiritually as a result of the families into which they are born." - Author: Iyanla Vanzant
