[Vendors Still Shivering In The Still-cool Air Gathered Around Me, Pushing Their Wares-chewing Gum, Biscuits, Baby Rattles, Cigarettes, Sold Individually Or By The Pack. I Didn't Want Anything, But They Kept Standing There; They Had Nothing Else To Do. A White Man Is Such An Anomaly, A Foundling From Another Planet, That Is It Possible To Stare At Him With Interest Almost Forever.]

"Change will lead to insight more often than insight will lead to change."

Emily H Sturgill Quotes

"I hide myself behind, a cloud of smoke; the smoke screen varies, dependent on the variable. The variable consists of: stress, anguish, boredom, madness, anger, depression, apathy, negativity, sex, violence & a little chunk of chaos."

Kate Reed Quotes

"Courage is an angel which makes the difference between a good life and a great life."

Adalbert Stifter Quotes

"Everyone is out for himself. Not everyone will say so but everyone behaves so. And those that dont say so often behave in an even more grossly selfish way."

Gabby Bess Quotes

"If originality is a "sense of novelty and freshness" then, in the act of constructing ourselves, originality is not the goal. We construct a self-portrait, relying on existing objects – books, quotes from authors and artists, images, art – that we are more than happy to show off to others for them to use as masturbation material or for the material by which they align themselves. This is the new action painting – the curational archive. The referential self portrait. The portrait of any other artist could be readily used to explain yourself, just reblog it and caption it with "same." The past consistently becomes the present, not through linear time, but through the constant reconstruction and relabeling of it."

William Wycherley Quotes

"Mistresses are like books; if you pore upon them too much, they doze you and make you unfit for company; but if used discreetly, you are the fitter for conversation by em."

Mona Adnan Quotes

"Remember when we didnt know that colours can mix and form other colours. When we were not introduced to strokes that brushes can form, when light and dark were not necessary for the picture to be completed, and when it was a matter of lines that were not suppose to be connected. When feelings crashed on a white heart unintentionally and when our soul was not held in captive. Remember?"

Jean Teule Quotes

"Che follia! Tu sei il padrone del tuo destino e credi di esserne la vittima!"

Julie Bowen Quotes

"I love my job."

Gary Allen Quotes

"But the struggles make you stronger and the changes make you wise... And happiness has its own way of taking its sweet time."

Quotes About Looks And Beauty

"you met me, flattered me, and taught me to be vain of my good looks. One day you introduced me to a friend of yours, who explained to me the wonder of youth, and you finished a portrait of me that revealed to me the wonder of beauty. In a mad moment that, even now, I dont know whether I regret or not, I made a wish, perhaps you would call it a prayer… ." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Lestrade

"My friend opened a small box which Lestrade had produced.

Quotes About Youth Exchange

"Limbic pursuits sink slowly and steadily lower on Americas list of collective priorities. Top-ranking items remain the pursuit of wealth, physical beauty, youthful appearance, and the shifting, elusive markers of status. There are brief spasms of pleasure to be had at the end of those pursuits – the razor-thin delight of the latest purchase, the momentary glee of flaunting this promotion or that unnecessary trinket – pleasure here, but not contentment. Happiness is within range only for adroit people who give the slip to Americas values. These rebels will necessarily forgo exalted titles, glamorous friends, exotic vacations, washboard abs, designer everything – all the proud indicators of upward mobility – and in exchange, they may just get a chance at a decent life.

Quotes About Spa Days

"If death is like a sonnet then life would be a haiku. The sonnet, a lyrical poem, the beauty and magic with the last breath~ love, words fading and floating off into the abyss that is space whilst our everyday lives or days more important than normal become just a mere whisper in only a few short syllables through which we convey with our hearts the truth of the universe in a single moment briefly." - Author: R.M. Engelhardt

Quotes About Friends That Argue

"I shrugged uncomfortably, leaning my head against hers, almost forgetting Mr. Gardners presence as Mo and I fell into that sort of exclusionary, near-telepathic best-friends communion. She knew that I would argue that I wasnt ashamed, but that I hadnt quite figured out how to truly mean it when I held my head up high. My entire life, people had been telling me to keep it down and stop being an embarrassment. So, I was still in that "fake it til you make it" stage, hoping genuine pride would come if I pretended confidence long enough. For now, I was relying on bravado and a complete lack of give-a-fuck to carry me through." - Author: Amelia C. Gormley

Quotes About Disruptive Innovation

"We need a wireless mobile device ecosystem that mirrors the PC/Internet ecosystem, one where the consumers purchase of network capacity is separate from their purchase of the hardware and software they use on that network.
