Sydney Salter Quotes

"Sure, the Americans want to joke about sacrifice, but then they want to go back to their hotels and sip fancy drinks by the pool. They like to climb the pyramid, take their photos, but they never think about the people who built such amazing temples. They never want to learn about the culture behind the climb."

Harvey A Bookstein Quotes

"To me, the term Therapeutic Accounting means truly working with my heart. My work is like a machine in some ways: it functions smoothly, it runs with precision, its reliably successful."

Trish Feehan Quotes

"The past is always with us. It echoes through every living moment, giving it depth and meaning beyond itself. Sometimes the past is so powerful, those echoes threaten to overwhelm the present."

Niyi Osundare Quotes

"One hasnt become a writer until one has distilled writing intoa habit, and that habit has been forced into an obsession.Writing has to be an obsession. It has to be something as organic,physiological and psychological as speaking or sleeping or eating."

Katherine Moennig Quotes

"I like stories that are not normal, everyday lives. I dont personally seek them out, but they find me."

Marie Hall Quotes

"Love is the cruelest myth of all."

Hans Zinsser Quotes

"Swords, Lances, arrows, machine guns, and even high explosives have had far less power over the fates of nations than the typhus louse, the plague flea, and the yellow-fever mosquito. Civilizations have retreated from the plasmodium of malaria, and armies have crumbled into rabbles under the onslaught of cholera spirilla, or of dysentery and typhoid bacilli. Huge areas have bee devastated by the trypanosome that travels on the wings of the tsetse fly, and generations have been harassed by the syphilis of a courtier. War and conquest and that herd existence which is an accompaniment of what we call civilization have merely set the stage for these more powerful agents of human tragedy."

Viktor Mayer Schonberger Quotes

"Sometimes the constraints that we live with, and presume are the same for everything, are really only functions of the scale in which we operate."

Tenessee Williams Quotes

"Security is a kind of death."

Kathy Baker Quotes

"I did not see myself as a leading lady. I thought I was really funny-looking and I would never be the lead, and I certainly would never do film or television. I wanted to do theater. I wanted to be the grand dame of the American stage."

Quotes About Email Communication

"In those years before mobile phones, email and Skype, travelers depended on the rudimentary communications system known as the postcard. Other methods--the long-distance phone call, the telegram--were marked "For Emergency Use Only." So my parents waved me off into the unknown, and their news bulletins about me would have been restricted to "Yes, hes arrived safely,"and "Last time we heard he was in Oregon," and "We expect him back in a few weeks." Im not saying this was necessarily better, let alone more character-forming; just that in my case it probably helped not to have my parents a buttons touch away, spilling out anxieties and long-range weather forecasts, warning me against floods, epidemics and psychos who preyed on backpackers." - Author: Julian Barnes

Quotes About Ideal Partner

"Wir alle machen unsere ersten Erfahrungen am anderen Geschlecht an unseren Eltern und Geschwistern. Die Beziehung der Eltern zueinander, die an ihnen erlebte Ehe oder sonstige Gemeinschaft, die Erfahrungen mit unseren Geschwistern formen unsere Erwartungen von Partnerschaft, Liebe und Sexualität. Hatten wir das Glück, unsere Eltern auch als Paar lieben zu können, ohne sie idealisieren zu müssen, ohne sie andererseits bedauern oder verachten, ja vielleicht hassen zu müssen; konnten wir ihre Begrenztheit, ihre Sorgen und Probleme, ihr Bemühen miterleben, aber auch ihre Freuden, ihr Zueinander-Stehen, ihr Verständnis für und ihr Vertrauen zueinander, haben wir mehr Aussichten, einen Partner zu finden, der solchen Erwartungen entspricht, und haben zugleich für unser eigenes Partner-Sein ein realisierbares Bild vorschweben." - Author: Fritz Riemann

Quotes About General Woundwort

"At that moment, in the sunset on Watership Down, there was offered to General Woundwort the opportunity to show whether he was really the leader of vision and genius which he believed himself to be, or whether he was no more than a tyrant with the courage and cunning of a pirate. For one beat of his pulse the lame rabbits idea shone clearly before him. He grasped it and realized what it meant. The next, he had pushed it away from him." - Author: Richard Adams

Quotes About Zookeeper

"The seals stupidly dive off rocks into swirling black water, barking mindlessly. The zookeepers feed them dead fish. A crowd gathers around the tank, mostly adults, a few accompanied by children. On the seals tank a plaque warns: COINS CAN KILL——IF SWALLOWED, COINS CAN LODGE IN AN ANIMALS STOMACH AND CAUSE ULCERS, INFECTIONS AND DEATH. DO NOT THROW COINS IN THE POOL. So what do I do? Toss a handful of change into the tank when none of the zookeepers are watching. Its not the seals I hate——its the audiences enjoyment of them that bothers me." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Boards Of Directors

Quotes About Heavenly Love

"I am feeling a deep sense of immense and immeasurable love within my heart for all things divine. This love is so much bigger and greater than I am. It is all encompassing and all unconditional. As I bask in this love, my heart, and love goes out to each and everyone, and to all of Gods creation. I humbly pray that we all can feel this love, and, can share this love, and apply this kind of love to our daily lives. I knee in gratitude, and with full purpose and sincerity of heart, to my most Beloved Father in heaven and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ as I submit all of me – all that I AM – and all that I will ever be, to have Divine Love to be present each and every minute, of every day for the rest of my life. I AM ALL THAT I AM because I AM DIVINE LOVE! My Heavenly Father, Please let me always be, Divine Love in action! Let each and every one of us, be Divine Love in Action." - Author: Sean D. Hamilton

Quotes About Schaffen

"Für mich besteht die Photographie im gleichzeitigen blitzschnellen Erkennen der inneren Bedeutung der Tatsache einerseits, und auf der anderen Seite des strengen und rückhaltlosen Aufbaus der optisch erfaßbaren Formenwelt, die jede Tatsache zum Ausdruck bringt. Indem wir leben, entdecken wir uns selbst und gleichzeitig die Außenwelt, die auf uns einwirkt, auf die wir aber auch unsererseits einwirken können. Zwischen dieser inneren und äußeren Welt muß ein Gleichgewicht geschaffen werden, die beiden Welten bilden in einem immerwährenden Dialog ein einziges Ganzes, und den Begriff davon müssen wir mitzuteilen suchen." - Author: Henri Cartier Bresson
