Amber Rose Quotes

"I love to eat and I dont believe in denying myself, so I have to work out. Im not obsessed with it, I dont have a trainer or do any of the fancy classes, but I usually put on my iPod and run on the treadmill for an hour a few days a week."

Richard Proenneke Quotes

"Needs? I guess that is what bothers so many folks. They keep expanding their needs until they are dependent on too many things and too many other people... I wonder how many things in the average American home could be eliminated if the question were asked, "Must I really have this?" I guess most of the extras are chalked up to comfort or saving time.Funny thing about comfort - one mans comfort is another mans misery. Most people dot work hard enough physically anymore, and comfort is not easy to find. It is surprising how comfortable a hard bunk can be after you come down off a mountain."

Robert Conklin Quotes

"Resistance is thought transformed into feeling. Change the thought that creates the resistance, and there is no more resistance."

Weldon Kees Quotes

"But the room is cold, the words in the books are cold;And the question of whether we get what we ask forIs absurd, unanswered by the sound of an unlatched doorRattling in wind, or the sound of snow on roofs, or glareOf the winter sun. What we have learned is not what we were told.I watch the snow, feel for the heartbeat that is not there."

Sergio Troncoso Quotes

"Ill miss everybody too. But Ill be back for Christmas, and for the summer. Abuelita, its the best school in the United States.""Youll come back a different person. Worse, you wont want to come back after you see everything out there. Why would you want to come back to this horrible nada?""Abuelita, thats not true. Ill be back. Ill call you every week, on the weekends when its cheaper. Ill learn so much. Nobody at Ysleta has ever been to Harvard, at least no one the teachers can remember.""Its a great honor, mijo. We know that. Im sure everyone in Ysleta is proud of you. But this is who you are," she said, for a moment scanning the dark night air and the empty street. A cricket chirped in the darkness. "God help you when you go to this ‘Havid. You will be so far away from us, from everything you know. You will be alone. What if something happens to you? Whos going to help you? But you always wanted to be alone; you were always so independent, so stubborn.""Like you."

Martin Robinson Quotes

"A missionary church cannot rely on the professional ministry for the primary work of mission. The role of the laity is critical because it is the lay members of the church who have the greatest contact with those who are outside of the normal structures of church life. In such a situation the task of clergy is not so much to engage in mission themselves, as to support the laity in their mission."

Quotes About Sparkling Wine

"I ate the roll, and forced down some more sparkling wine. When your eyes closed against the sun again, and I had nothing else to look at I glanced quickly at your chest, curious, really. Id only seen chests like that in magazines. I wondered if thats how youd got all your money . . . modeling. I looked down at my stomach. I grabbed at it, seeing how much fat I could lift up in a roll. "Dont worry," you said, one eye open again like a crocodile, watching me. "Youre beautiful." You tipped your head back again "Beautiful," you murmured. "Perfect." "You wouldnt know. Youre built like some sort of supermodel." I bit my lip, wishing I hadnt complimented you like that. "Or a stripper," I added. "Prostitute." "I wouldnt want you to think Im repulsive," you said, half smiling. "Too late." You opened your other eye to squint at me. "Will you ever give me a break?" - Author: Lucy Christopher

Quotes About Extroversion

"An endless series of gambits backed by gigantic investments encouraged young people entering the online world for the first time to create standardized presences on sites like Facebook. Commercial interests promoted the widespread adoption of standardized designs like the blog, and these designs encouraged pseudonymity in at least some aspects of their designs, such as comments, instead of the proud extroversion that characterized the first wave of web culture.Instead of people being treated as the sources of their own creativity, commercial aggregation and abstraction sites presented anonymized fragments of creativity as products that might have fallen from the sky or been dug up from the ground, obscuring the true sources." - Author: Jaron Lanier

Quotes About Creepy Guys

"A lot of acting requires you to be a charming version of yourself. A lot of what happens in the industry is that you are cast based on other things that people have seen you do, or how you are perceived to look or sound. If everyone thinks youre bizarre and creepy, then you play bad guys." - Author: Matt Ross

Quotes About Square

"I have traveled widely. I have seen this country in its infancy. I tell you what it will become. The public squares will be occupied by an uneducated class who will not be able to quote a line of Shakespeare." - Author: Peter Carey

Quotes About Know Thy Enemy

"And we were taught to play golf. Golf epitomizes the tame world. On a golf course nature is neutered. The grass is clean, a lawn laundry that wipes away the mud, the insect, the bramble, nettle and thistle, an Eezy-wipe lawn where nothing of life, dirty and glorious, remains. Golf turns outdoors into indoors, a prefab mat of stultified grass, processed, pesticided, herbicided, the pseudo-green of formica sterility. Here, the grass is not singing. The wind cannot blow through it. Dumb expression, greenery made stupid, it hums a bland monotone in the key of the mono-minded. No word is emptier than a golf tee. No roots, it has no known etymology, it is verbal nail polish. Worldwide, golf is an arch act of enclosure, a commons fenced and subdued for the wealthy, trampling serf and seedling. The enemy of wildness, it is a demonstration of the absolute dominion of man over wild nature." - Author: Jay Griffiths

Quotes About Bible Lambs

"Charis herself gave up Christianity a long time ago. For one thing, the Bible is full of meat: animals being sacrificed, lambs, bullocks, doves. Cain was right to offer up the vegetables, God was wrong to refuse them. And theres too much blood: people in the Bible are always having their blood spilled, blood on their hands, their blood licked up by dogs. There are too many slaughters, too much suffering, too many tears.She used to think some of the Eastern religions would be more serene; she was a Buddhist for a while, before she discovered how many hells they had. Most religions are so intent on punishment." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Vento

"Johnson, who defines poetry as metrical composition, defines poet as An inventor; an author of fiction; a writer of poems; one who writes in measure. We can gauge how far we have traveled by comparing this with the Shorter Oxford Dictionary which, after a definition very like Johnsons, feels obligated to add A writer in verse (or sometimes in elevated prose) distinguished by imaginative power, insight, sensibility, and faculty of expression." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Improvement

"He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome." - Author: Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Quotes About Weakness And Love

"The dark is generous and it is patient and it always wins – but in the heart of its strength lies its weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.Love is more than a candle.Love can ignite the stars." - Author: Matthew Woodring Stover

Quotes About Thieves At Work

"In medieval times, contrary to popular belief, most knights were bandits, mercenaries, lawless brigands, skinners, highwaymen, and thieves. The supposed chivalry of Charlemagne and Roland had as much to do with the majority of medieval knights as the historical Jesus with the temporal riches and hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, or any church for that matter. Generally accompanied by their immoral entourage or servants, priests, and whores, they went from tourney to tourney like a touring rock and roll band, sports team, or gang of South Sea pirates. Court to court, skirmish to skirmish, rape to rape. Fighting as the nobles substitution for work." - Author: Tod Wodicka
