"Indians love to reduce the prosaic to the mystic."

Caprice Crane Quotes

"One moment follows another. Next comes from previous. So you have to stay on your toes. Protect yourself. Listen to that little voice inside you that says, "Dont do that! You wont like the consequences." Look at all the stuff thats happened to you along the twisting road of your life—good and bad"

Tommy Cooper Quotes

"Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off."

Sorin Suciu Quotes

"What makes the Arctic VarChar so unusual and popular is that each bite has a different taste. As you carve your way into the ersatz fillet, you might find yourself chewing on smoked salmon, tender tuna, marinated mackerel, seared snapper, raw roe, baked barracuda, grilled goldfish, or even pickled perch, to alliterate just a few."

Brenda Ueland Quotes

"The tragedy of bold, forthright, industrious people is that they act so continuously without much thinking, that it becomes dry and empty."

Janice Thompson Quotes

"1 Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral May you have no frost on your spuds, No worms on your cabbage. May your goat give plenty of milk. If you inherit a donkey, may she be in foal. Irish saying Theres no denying the fact that my grandpa Aengus shaped the way I look at life. The man had a saying for everything. If I fell and scraped my knee, he mended it with an Irish proverb: "For every storm, a rainbow, for every tear, a smile." If I woke up with a head cold, he had an Irish"

Nicci French Quotes

"It made me realize how unimaginative I had always been about battered wives. Disaster creeps up, a tidal wave on the tourist beach. By the time you can see it, you are powerless or unable to resist it and it rolls you up and away."

Alain Fournier Quotes

"This evening, which I have tried to spirit away, is a strange burden to me. While time moves on, while the day will soon end and I already wish it gone, there are men who have entrusted all their hopes to it, all their love and their last efforts. There are dying men or others who are waiting for a debt to come due, who wish that tomorrow would never come. There are others for whom the day will break like a pang of remorse; and others who are tired, for whom the night will never be long enough to give them the rest that they need. And I - who have lost my day - what right do I have to wish that tomorrow comes?"

DA Carson Quotes

"In the moral realm, there is very little consensus left in Western countries over the proper basis of moral behavior. And because of the power of the media, for millions of men and women the only venue where moral questions are discussed and weighed is the talk show, where more often than not the primary aim is to entertain, even shock, not to think. When Geraldo and Oprah become the arbiters of public morality, when the opinion of the latest media personality is sought on everything from abortion to transvestites, when banality is mistaken for profundity because [its] uttered by a movie star or a basketball player, it is not surprising that there is less thought than hype. Oprah shapes more of the nations grasp of right and wrong than most of the pulpits in the land. Personal and social ethics have been removed from the realms of truth and structures of thoughts; they have not only been relativized, but they have been democratized and trivialized."

Jiang Rong Quotes

"The grassland is a big life, but its thinner than peoples eyelids. If you rupture its grassy surface, you blind it, and dust storms are more lethal than the white-hair blizzards. If the grassland dies, so will the cows and sheep and horses, as well as the wolves and the people, all the little lives."

Quotes About Dancing Together

"[M]an has been accustomed, ever since he was a boy, to having a dozen incompatible philosophies dancing about together inside his head. He doesnt think of doctrines as primarily "true" or "false," but as "academic" or "practical," "outworn" or "contemporary," "conventional" or "ruthless." Jargon, not argument, is your best ally in keeping him from the Church. Dont waste time trying to make him think that materialism is true! Make him think it is strong or stark or courageous—that it is the philosophy of the future. Thats the sort of thing he cares about." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Qualita

"Reconciliation means that those who have been on the underside of history must see that there is a qualitative difference between repression and freedom. And for them, freedom translates into having a supply of clean water, having electricity on tap; being able to live in a decent home and have a good job; to be able to send your children to school and to have accessible health care. I mean, whats the point of having made this transition if the quality of life of these people is not enhanced and improved? If not, the vote is useless.-archbishop Desmond Tutu, chair of South Africas Truth and Reconciliation Committee, 2001" - Author: Naomi Klein
