[Toddlers Were Running The Place Like Some Miniature Version Of Lord Of The Flies, Complete With Weapons Made From Blocks And Tinker Toys. One Of Them Came At Me, Charging My Knees And The Pink Pod That Held My Precious Baby. I Screamed And Made A Run For The Front Door, Flip-flops Sticking To Squelchy Dried Puddles Of Juice. I Let Out A Relieved Sigh When We Were Outside Breathing Fresh Air. The Near-deafening Roar Of The Highway Was A Lark Song Compared To The Screeching We'd Just Escaped.]

Ramsey Isler Quotes

"Their lives revolved around evil acts; some within their control, and some not. Some of them werent born with the capacity for kindness, and others found it better to spare no compassion for anyone in this cruel world because they felt none would be given to them. Fate deals a bad hand to some folks. Some people are just doomed to be no good."

Quotes About Worth Of Life

"From around the age of six, I had the habit of sketching from life. I became an artist, and from fifty on began producing works that won some reputation, but nothing I did before the age of seventy was worthy of attention. At seventy-three, I began to grasp the structures of birds and beasts, insects and fish, and of the way plants grow. If I go on trying, I will surely understand them still better by the time I am eighty-six, so that by ninety I will have penetrated to their essential nature. At one hundred, I may well have a positively divine understanding of them, while at one hundred and thirty, forty, or more I will have reached the stage where every dot and every stroke I paint will be alive. May Heaven, that grants long life, give me the chance to prove that this is no lie." - Author: Hokusai Katsushika

Quotes About Behalf

"Not long ago, having expressed some disagreements in print with an old comrade of long standing, I was sent a response that he had published in an obscure newspaper. This riposte referred to my opinions as ‘racist. I would obviously scorn to deny such an allegation on my own behalf. I would, rather, prefer to repudiate it on behalf of my former friend. He had known me for many years and cooperated with me on numerous projects, and I am quite confident that he would never have as a collaborator anyone he suspected of racial prejudice. But it does remind me, and not for the first time, that quarrels on the left have a tendency to become miniature treason trials, replete with all kinds of denunciation. Theres a general tendency—not by any means confined to radicals but in some way specially associated with them—to believe that once the lowest motive for a dissenting position has been found, it must in some way be the real one." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Breeding Horses

"If theres a zeppelin, its alternate history. If theres a rocketship, its science fiction. If there are swords and/or horses, its fantasy.

If a book has a rocketship in it, the only thing that can turn it back into fantasy is the Holy Grail." - Author: Debra Doyle

Quotes About Moving Offices

"Memory in these incomparable streets, in mosaics of pain and sweetness, was clear to me now, a unity at last. I remembered small and unimportant things from the past: the whispers of roommates during thunderstorms, the smell of brass polish on my fingertips, the first swim at Folly Beach in April, lightning over the Atlantic, shelling oysters at Bowens Island during a rare Carolina snowstorm, pigeons strutting across the graveyard at St. Philips, lawyers moving out of their offices to lunch on Broad Street, the darkness of reveille on cold winter mornings, regattas, the flash of bagpipers tartans passing in review, blue herons on the marshes, the pressure of the chinstrap on my shako, brotherhood, shad roe at Henrys, camellias floating above water in a porcelain bowl, the scowl of Mark Santoro, and brotherhood again." - Author: Pat Conroy
