[We Believed That It Was Most Desirable That The North Should Win, We Believed In The Principle That The Union Is Indissoluable, We, Or Many Of Us At Least, Also Believed That The Conflict Was Inevitable, And That Slavery Had Lasted Long Enough. But We Equally Believed That Those Who Stood Against Us Held Just As Sacred Conviction That Were The Opposite Of Ours, And We Respected Them As Every Men With A Heart Must Respect Those Who Give All For Their Belief.]

Quotes About Husbands And Wives

"There it lies, I think, Damien … possession; not in wars, as some tend to believe; not so much; and very rarely in extraordinary interventions such as here … this girl … this poor child. No, I tend to see possession most often in the little things, Damien: in the senseless, petty spites and misunderstandings; the cruel and cutting word that leaps unbidden to the tongue between friends. Between lovers. Between husbands and wives. Enough of these and we have no need of Satan to manage our wars; these we manage for ourselves … for ourselves." - Author: William Peter Blatty

Quotes About Tough Weeks

"I used to wish I had an easier life," he mused. "Some families sail through years with nothing touching them. They have no tragedies. They go on about how lucky they are. Yet sometimes it seems to me theyre half alive. When something goes wrong for them, and it does for everyone sooner or later, their trauma is much worse. Theyve had nothing bad happen to them before. In the meantime, they think little problems, like losing a wallet, are big deals. They think its ruined their day. They have no idea what a hard days like. Its going to be incredibly tough for them when they find out."Hed also developed his own version of making the most of every minute. "Through Sam I found out how quickly things can change. Because of him Ive learned to appreciate each moment and try not to hold on to things. Lifes more exciting and intense that way. Its like the yogurt that goes off after three days. It tastes so much better than the stuff that lasts three weeks." - Author: Helen Brown

Quotes About Origem

"Ele assegurou-lhe de que a amava e pediu em troca aquele coração que talvez soubesse tão bem quanto ela que já lhe pertencia. Pois, embora Henry agora gostasse de verdade de Catherine, embora se deliciasse com todas as qualidades de sua personalidade e de fato adorasse sua companhia, devo confessar que sua afeição tivera origem na mera gratidão ou, em outras palavras, que aquilo que aprofundara seus sentimentos fora a certeza da natureza dos dela. É uma circunstância nova nos romances, reconheço, e terrivelmente aviltante para a dignidade de uma heroína; mas se for tão inédita assim na vida real, então ao menos o mérito de possuir uma imaginação fértil será todo meu." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Being Sharpened

"Arthur takes a seat beside her. The colored lights bounce off his eyeglasses and Louisa loses all interest in time-travel technology. The future and the past disappear. All she feels is the tension between two bodies. How his head had been in her lap. How her hand had been wrapped inside his. The tension leaks down her throat. The belly. The muscle. And something forged. A weld. A softness. A vagueness that is rather quickly being sharpened into a point aimed directly at Louisas heart." - Author: Samantha Hunt
