Ogor Winnie Okoye Quotes

"practice only envisioning yourself at the finish line and be unrelenting and fervent in racing towards that finish line. Undue preoccupation and fixation with the hows, whens, and what ifs will not only derail and further distance you from your destination, but will also feed your mind with those fatal seeds of doubt that make failure inevitable" ~ Awaken and Unleash your Victor"

Tama Janowitz Quotes

"I felt my whole life was a facsimile of a life."

Chris Christie Quotes

"The rule for effective governance is simple. It is one Ronald Reagan knew by heart. And one that he successfully employed with Social Security and the Cold War. When there is a problem, you fix it. That is the job you have been sent to do and you cannot wait for someone else to do it for you."

Michel Onfray Quotes

"Socialists find me too far left; Trotskyites not far enough; ecologists say I am too happy eating foie gras, defending nuclear energy and GM plants; feminists find I am not enough of a woman; anarchists a petit-bourgeois who has sold out because I believe in universal suffrage."

Paul Nouge Quotes

"If words allow themselves to be handled, it is with the help of infinite carefulness. One has to welcome them, listen to the, before asking any service of them. Words are living things closely involved with human life."

Erik Larson Quotes

"In Germany, Dodd had noticed, no one ever abused a dog, and as a consequence dogs were never fearful around men and were always plump and obviously well tended. "Only horses seem to be equally happy, never children or the youth," he wrote. ... He called it "horse happiness" and had noticed the same phenomenon in Nuremburg and Dresden. In part, he knew this happiness was fostered by German law, which forbade cruelty to animals and punished violators with prison. "At a time when hundreds of men have been put to death without trial or any sort of evidence of guilt, and when the population literally trembles with fear, animals have rights guaranteed them which men and women cannot think of expecting." He added, "One might easily wish he were a horse!"

Edward Weston Quotes

"Photography suits the temper of this age - of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately."

"You snuck across my yard like a trained mercenary. Dressed in a black getup without so much as a pebble misplaced under your shoe or a crinkled leaf to make a sound.

Now youre sittin there all hunched around yourself like a rabbit in the grass. Definitely runnin I just hope its not from the law." - Author: Jocelyn Adams

Quotes About Unwanted Family

"What if all Id ever known was how it had been for the past three years - me being an unwanted outsider in my own family?I might have turned out like Aphrodite, and I might still be letting my parents control me because I was hoping desperately that I would be good enough, make them proud, so that some day they would really love me." - Author: P.C.

Quotes About Numbers And Math

"Once I dated a woman I only liked 43%.So I only listened to 43% of what she said.Only told the truth 43% of the time.And only kissed with 43% of my lips.Some say you cant quantify desire, attaching a number to passion isnt right, that the human heart doesnt work like that.But for me it does-I walk down the streetand numbers appear on the foreheadsof the people I look at. In bars, its worse.With each drink, the numbers go upuntil every woman in the joint has a blurryeighty something above her eyebrows, and the next day I can only remember 17%of what actually happened. Thats the problemwith booze-it screws with your math." - Author: Jeffrey McDaniel

Quotes About Competition In Family

"Certainly sand was not suitable for life. Yet, was a stationary condition absolutely indispensable for existence? Didnt unpleasant competition arise precisely because one tried to cling to a fixed position? If one were to give up a fixed position and abandon oneself to the movement of the sands, competition would soon stop. Actually, in the deserts flowers bloomed and insects and other animals lived their lives. These creatures were able to escape competition through their great ability to adjust--for example, the mans beetle family. While he mused on the effect of the flowing sands, he was seized from time to time by hallucinations in which he himself began to move with the flow." - Author: Kōbō Abe

Jennifer thought back when something came to mind. "Well, what was that great big building we went to the last time we visited? You know, we went all the way to the top.""That was the Empire State building.""No fooling? Huh, what do you know? Well you should move in there, it was beautiful as I recall." "You cant move into the Empire State building." "Oh, thats right," Jennifer soon realized, "those mean terrorists tore it down. My, that was just awful." - Author: Carroll Bryant

Quotes About Not Wearing Makeup

"But insensate Time is nothing if not cruel and heartless. It corrodes then destroys, so that the man you literally and figuratively looked up to with your chubby face, who scooped you up to cross the street and patted you on the head to laughter, will later look through you from a crooked hospital bed then blindly up at you while wearing makeup in a bargain casket. The people who now surround you generating warmth will disappear leaving only an empty chill; the body you own and the brain it houses will malfunction. And sometimes, especially in Boxing, a twenty four year old can become a man overnight." - Author: Sergio De La Pava

Quotes About Bad Mom

"I pause, examining her eyes, and then move forward with caution. "So if I kissed you right now, I wouldnt be taking advantage of you?" "No, but I might be taking advantage of you. Your breath smells about as bad as the bottle." She fans her nose with a smile. "Trust me. You can take advantage of me and I wont mind, even when I sober up." I press my lips to hers, feeling my heart thump in my chest as her breath catches. It grows silent as we lie with our foreheads touching and our breaths mingling. I place my hand on her hip, shutting my eyes, feeling the intensity of the moment like an open wound." - Author: Jessica Sorensen

"But did he go to heaven?" Katherine persisted. "Thats between him and God, not him and history," JB said.Alex started, jerking so spastically that he kicked the basketball and would have sent it spinning out into the street if Chip hadnt caught it. Amazingly, Chip still seemed to have a swordsmans quick reflexes."YOU believe in God?" Alex asked JB incredulously. "But you know how to travel through time. Youre a scientist." He hesitated. "Arent you?"JB rolled his eyes."It amazes me how people of your time set up such a false dichotomy between science and religion. Fortunately, that only lasts for another... well, I cant tell you that," he said, stopping himself just in time. "But I assure you, the more I travel through time, the more I witness, the more I realize that there are things that are both strange and wonderful, far beyond human comprehension."
