[Two Men Who Had Never Seen Each Other Before And Would Not Likely See Each Other Again. But Their Sincerity And Sweetness, Their Sharing An Instant In A Fleeting Life. It Was Almost As If A Secret Had Passed Between Them. Was This Some Kind Of Love? I Wanted To Follow Them, To Touch Them, To Tell Them Of My Happiness. I Wanted To Whisper To Them: 'This Is It. This Is It'".]

John Berger Quotes

"Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasnt changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman."

Robert J Furey Quotes

"Those who make compassion an essential part of their lives find the joy of life. Kindness deepens the spirit and produces rewards that cannot be completely explained in words. It is an experience more powerful than words. To become acquainted with kindness one must be prepared to learn new things and feel new feelings. Kindness is more than a philosophy of the mind. It is a philosophy of the spirit."

Quotes About Sombrios

"Mas vamos vivendo nossos belos dias, sem percebê-los; só quando chegam os ruins é que os desejamos de volta. Milhares de horas serenas e agradáveis deixamos passar por nós, sem fluí-las e mostrando má vontade, para depois, em tempos sombrios, dirigirmos em vão o nosso anelo para elas." - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

Quotes About Recovering From Surgery

"Real faith, however, is required to endure this necessary but painful developmental process. As things unfold, sometimes in full view, let us be merciful with each other. We certainly do not criticize hospital patients amid intensive care for looking pale and preoccupied. Why then those recovering from surgery on their souls? No need for us to stare; those stitches will finally come out. And in this hospital, too, it is important for everyone to remember that the hospital chart is not the patient. Extending our mercy to someone need not wait upon our full understanding of their challenges! Empathy may not be appreciated or reciprocated, but empathy is never wasted." - Author: Neal A. Maxwell

Until then, I will not wash my hands nor let them hang useless." - Author: Roger Zelazny

Quotes About Noli Me Tangere

Quotes About Unfamiliar Territory

Quotes About Transferring Home

"When I was in eighth grade, I used a self-timing camera to take nude pictures of myself in various stages of erection. I then exchanged my biology teachers slides with the images. The teacher, in a state of panic, kept rapidly pressing the ‘next button. It was like a pornographic flip-book. That was the last straw in a very heavy pile of straws. I was expelled, and I ended up transferring mid-year from boarding school to a public school near home." - Author: Dani Alexander
