Oliver Bullough Quotes

"[Father Dmitry] "lived through collectivization, the crushing of the 80 percent of Russians that were peasants. He served as a soldier in World War Two, when millions of peasants died defending the government that had crushed them. He spent eight years in the gulag, the network of labour camps created to break the spirit of anyone who still resisted. He rose again to speak out for his parishioners in the 1960s and 1970s, striving to help young Russians create a freer and fairer society."

Quotes About Progeny

"Until recently, most environmental organizations offered only token attention to children. Perhaps their lack of zeal stems from an unconscious ambivalence about children, who symbolize or represent overpopulation. So goes the unspoken mantra: We have met the enemy and it is our progeny." - Author: Richard Louv

Quotes About Wound

"Hatsumomos lovely smille grew... until her lips were as rich and full as drops of blood beading at the edge of a wound" - Author: Arthur Golden

Quotes About Pruning

"Down at the old house, Ive made a serious effort to rejuvenate what was once my garden and lawn. And Ive been rewarded with all sorts of forgotten and neglected plants making surprise appearances. Random daffodils and narcissus. A fairy rose that I thought was gone forever. And, despite some very enthusiastic pruning by the local deer population, the little plum trees look as if they will survive. There is one that is very battered as the deer used it to rub the velvet off their antlers, but it is sending up some shoots and it may yet live for another year. So. Spring. The most forgiving season of the year." - Author: Megan Lindholm

Quotes About Funny Exhausted

"Funny, he wasnt handsome, not in a Mr. Perfect kind of way, at least. The guy had a nose that had clearly been busted once or three times, and his hazel eyes were too shrewd and too exhausted to be classified as attractive. But he was like a cocked gun: He has a steely intelligence and a dangerous power about him that you respected. Because the combination was a flat-out killer, literally" - Author: J.R. Ward

Quotes About Bibles Death

"At Camp Don Bosco, there were Bibles all over the place, mostly 1970s hippie versions like Good News for Modern Man. They had groovy titles like The Word or The Way, and translated the Bible into "contemporary English," which meant Saul yelling at Jonathan, "You son of a bitch!" (I Samuel 20:30). Awesome! The King James version gave this verse as "Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman," which was bogus in comparison. Maybe these translations went a bit far. I recall one of the Bibles translating the inscription over the cross, "INRI" (Iesus Nazaremus Rex Iudaeorum), as "SSDD" (Same Shit Different Day), and another describing the Last Supper — the night before Jesus death, a death he freely accepted — where Jesus breaks the bread, gives it to his disciples, and says, "Its better to burn out than fade away," but these memories could be deceptive." - Author: Rob Sheffield

Quotes About 27th Birthday

"I did a cake for the 60th birthday of Elton John, for Britney Spears 27th birthday and for the Circus album she put out - the cake had circus themes. I prepared a cake for a surprise 82nd birthday event for the architect Frank Gehry; the cake was comprised of mini-replicas of his buildings." - Author: Ron Ben Israel

Quotes About Wedding Ceremony

"The wedding was in Monterey, a sombre boding ceremony in a little Protestant chapel. The church had so often seen two ripe bodies die by the process of marriage that it seemed to celebrate a mystic double death with its ritual." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Restless

"If you limit the search for truth and forbid men anywhere, in any way, to seek knowledge, you paralyze the vital force of truth itself.In the best sense of the word, Jesus was a radical. His religion has been so long identified with conservation -- often with conservatism of the obstinate and unyielding sort -- that it is almost startling for us sometimes to remember that all of the conservatism of his own times was against him; that it was the young, free, restless, sanguine, progressive part of the people who flocked to him." - Author: Phillips Brooks

Quotes About Structure In Life

"The "Appeal to Love" was an essential part of the very structure of the Shining Barrier. What it meant was simply this question: what will be best for our love? Should one of us change a pattern of behavior that bothered the other, or should the other learn to accept? Well, which would be better for our love? Which way would be better, in any choice or decision, in the light of our single goal: to be in love as long as life might last?" - Author: Sheldon Vanauken

Quotes About Bad Drivers

"Cant you do something for her?" his nephew finally asked, when several moments passed and her screaming anddidnt stop. "I already have. I didnt kill her," Lucian said dryly, then added, "Slow down. Youre as bad as taxi drivers." "And youre a backseat driver," Thomas muttered, then cursed under his breath. "Surely there are some drugs or something we could give her to settle her down?" Lucian glanced at him with interest. "Do you have any?" Thomas blinked. "No." "Hmm." He sat back in his seat. "Neither do I." Thomas stared for a moment, glanced back at the woman in the back of the car, then said, "Her screaming is rather loud, dont you think? Just a bit distracting for those of us trying to concentrate." "Yes, it is," Lucian agreed, and reached into his pocket for his earplugs. He popped them into his ears and closed his eyes, the shrieking in the car considerably muffled. Hed have killed the woman before the plane had landed without the earplugs. They were a blessing." - Author: Lynsay Sands
