Chang Rae Lee Quotes

"Fan would have expected that one or two of the Girls would have long rebelled at spending a life in a room, would have begged, say, the dentist, to help them steal away, but the funny thing about this existence is that once firmly settled we occupy it with less guard than we know. We watch ourselves routinely brushing our teeth, or coloring the wall, or blowing off the burn from a steaming yarn of soup noodles, and for every moment there is a companion moment that elides onto it, a secret span that deepens the originals stamp. We feel ever obliged by everyday charges and tasks. They conscript us more and more. We find world enough in a frame. Until at last we take our places at the wheel, or wall, or line, having somewhere forgotten that we can look up."

SP Wayne Quotes

Madison Thorne Grey Quotes

"There was no mistaking what the feeling of fullness in his heart meant. They were mates and were bound together. Forever. Wharicks green eyes closed for a moment as he absorbed the feeling of completeness their bond provided his spirit."

Alex Shakar Quotes

Caitlen Rubino Bradway Quotes

"There was an outburst of noise and protests, and Jeremy announced I wasnt being logical, of course they wouldnt sell me, because it was illegal, for heavens sake. Alexa gave him a look that said youre not helping, and Gil smacked him on the back of the head, and Olivia said, yes, that was the only reason they werent going to sell me."

Dean Smith Quotes

"I do believe in praising that which deserves to be praised."

Quotes About Seemed

"In Egypt, I loved the perfume of the lotus. A flower would bloom in the pool at dawn, filling the entire garden with a blue musk so powerful it seemed that even the fish and ducks would swoon. By night, the flower might wither but the perfume lasted. Fainter and fainter, but never quite gone. Even many days later, the lotus remained in the garden. Months would pass and a bee would alight near the spot where the lotus had blossomed, and its essence was released again, momentary but undeniable." - Author: Anita Diamant

Quotes About Intestines

"At the last minute, she bobbed left so that he stabbed the wall shed hit, trapping the blade in the Sheetrock.

Meeting his shocked stare, she said, "What, like you didnt think Id have a second knife? Fucking idiot." - Author: J.R. Ward

Quotes About Translators

"Andrew Moraviscik, one of the best American scholars of Europe, points out that once you exclude translators and clerical workers, the European Commission employs 2.500 officials, "fewer than any moderately sized European city and less than 1 percent of the number employed by the French state alone". As for its undemocratic nature, any new law it wishes to pass needs more than 71 percent of the weighted national-government votes - "a larger proportion than the required to amend the American Constitution"." - Author: Fareed Zakaria

Quotes About Shame And Love

"Your highest patriotism today is to respect the memory of those who have died in the uniform of their country by vowing that it will never happen again. The basest treason is to permit yourself to shamefully and cowardly follow the false patriots into another war, one surely bringing in its wake even greater disasters for our beloved America than any before." - Author: Willis Carto

Quotes About Mass Murders

"It is tragic to see how the religious sentiment of the West has become so individualized that concepts such as "a contrite heart," have come to refer only to the personal experiences of guilt and willingness to do penance for it. The awareness of our impurity in thoughts, words and deeds can indeed put us in a remorseful mood and create in us the hope for a forgiving gesture. But if the catastrophical events of our days, the wars, mass murders, unbridled violence, crowded prisons, torture chambers, the hunger and the illness of millions of people and he unnamable misery of a major part of the human race is safely kept outside the solitude of our hearts, our contrition remains no more than a pious emotion." - Author: Henri J.M.
