RC Robertson Glasgow Quotes

"Don Bradman will bat no more against England, and two contrary feelings dispute within us: relief, that our bowlers will no longer be oppressed by this phenomenon; regret, that a miracle has been removed from among us. So must ancient Italy have felt when she heard of the death of Hannibal."

Michael Johnston Quotes

"There was a new simplicity to what I did, a door that had opened before me to worlds I had not imagined. From where I sat, if you watched carefully you could marvel at it, like the impossible birth of a cottonseed or the slow rise of a wooden house: the steady construction of a man, built brick by brick from the shadow of a boy."

Gary Paulsen Quotes

"All the luck in the world has to come every year, in every part of every year, or there is not a harvest and then the luck, the bad luck will come and everything we are, all that we can ever be, all the Einsteins and babies and love and hate, all the joy and sadness and sex and wanting and liking and disliking, all the soft summer breezes on cheeks and first snowflakes, all the Van Goghs and Rembrandts and Mozarts and Mahlers and Thomas Jeffersons and Lincolns and Ghandis and Jesus Christs, all the Cleopatras and lovemaking and riches and achievements and progress, all of that, every single damn thing that we are or ever will be is dependent on six inches of topsoil and the fact that the rain comes when its needed and does not come when it is not needed; everything, every...single...thing comes with that luck."

Quotes About Courage And Strength Cancer

The trust, courage and strength one develops through the practice of yoga will set anyone up to face lifes most challenging experiences. Ive heard folks say «Oh, I dont do yoga.» Give yoga a chance, and you will find that its so much more than pretzel poses. Yoga is about finding your own balance in our crazy, tempestuous times. Its about standing tall with confidence even when the winds of your world are swirling around you." - Author: Kathryn E. Livingston

Quotes About Renewal Of Spirit

"I was trying to discover examples of a living restoration, trying to go beyond discussions about correct historic colors, materials, and techniques. I looked to the past for guidance, to find the graces we need to save. I want to be an importer. This is not nostalgia; I am not nostalgic. I am not looking for a way back. "From where will a renewal come to us, to us who have devastated the whole earthly globe?" asked Simone Weil. "Only from the past if we love it."What I am looking for is the trick of having the same ax twice, for a restoration that renews the spirit, for work that transforms the worker. We may talk of saving antique linens, species, or languages; but whatever we are intent on saving, when a restoration succeeds, we rescue ourselves.-- Howard Mansfield, The Same Ax Twice: Restoration and Renewal in a Throwaway Age" - Author: Howard Mansfield

Quotes About Pices

"There was a peculiar fascination for Dorothea in this division of property intended for herself, and always regarded by her as excessive. She was blind, you see, to many things obvious to others - likely to tread in the wrong places, as Celia had warned her; yet her blindness to whatever did not lie in her own pure purpose carried her safely by the side of precipices where vision would have been perilous with fear." - Author: George Eliot

Quotes About Neigbors

"My dear," said my mother suddenly, "take the money and run on. I am going to faint." This was certainly the end for us both, I thought. How I cursed the cowardice of the neigbors; how I blamed my poor mother for her honesty and her greed, for her past foolhardiness and present weakness! We were just at the little bridge, by good fortune, and I helped her, tottering as she was, to the edge of the bank, where, sure enough, she gave a sigh and fell on my shoulder. I do not know how I found the strength to do it all, and I am afraid it was roughly done, but I managed to drag her down to the bank and a little way under the arch. Farther I could not mover her, for the bridge was too low to let me do more than crawl below it. So there we had to stay--my mother almost entirely visible and both of us within earshot of the inn." - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Quotes About Captain Nemo

"You would never do anything like that, would you?" my wife asked him. "You would never hurt animals."Our son shook his head, looking offended by the question. He might have been lying, but my knowledge of his belief system, composed of equal parts off-kilter Far Side animal-centrism and a dark Captain Nemoesque contempt for humanity, inclined me to think he was telling the truth. Gigantic fish pulling the limbs from cruel little boys, that might be something you could get him to sign on for." - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Motor Neuron Disease

"If my dramatic career doesnt work out, I will go on to research and find cures for Alzheimers or Parkinsons and other motor neuron diseases. Its a very exciting field of research. But Id like to continue in drama, so it wouldnt be very smart of me if I blew this amazing opportunity with an inappropriate lifestyle." - Author: Freddie Stroma

Quotes About Butting Out

"I went after Beau Sunday. I knew Id find him at the bar shooting pool. Its where he always goes to unwind. When I got there we said a few things and threw a few punches." Sawyer glanced over at me and smirked. "Id like to say Beau looked worse but we both know Id be lying. I might have the throwing arm when it comes to football, but he has me beat when it comes to throwing punches. Fact is, he could have really put a hurting on me. He spent most of the time blocking my punches." Sawyer stopped and let out a frustrated sigh." - Author: Abbi Glines
