Judith Krantz Quotes

"Did she make you laugh? Did she love you as much as you loved her? Did she protect you and warm you and keep you from suffering? Valentine turned her eyes away from him, unable to face the empty answer in his face but not wanting to stop saying what she had thought for so long. "I saw how fascinating her mystery was to you. For my part, I think that the mystery is always greatest where there is the most-emptiness. A person full of life is never mysterious, on the contrary."

Quotes About Unfitting

Quotes About Senior Living

"Now, I am living out my life in my corner, taunting myself with the spiteful and useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot become anything seriously, and it is only the fool who becomes anything. Yes, a man in the nineteenth century must and morally ought to be pre-eminently a characterless creature; a man of character, an active man is pre-eminently a limited creature. That is my conviction of forty years. I am forty years old now, and you know forty years is a whole lifetime; you know it is extreme old age. To live longer than forty years is bad manners, is vulgar, immoral. Who does live beyond forty? Answer that, sincerely and honestly. I will tell you who do: fools and worthless fellows. I tell all old men that to their face, all these venerable old men, all these silver-haired and reverend seniors! I tell the whole world that to its face! I have a right to say so, for I shall go on living to sixty myself. To seventy! To eighty!... Stay, let me take breath..." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Friends Stupidity

"They say that "true love" doesnt mean being inseparable; it means being separated and nothing changes. This quote holds water if youre supporting a spouse with their life mission or educational pursuits. However, if your significant other wants to go get drunk with his or her friends without you, hang out at strip shows, get arrested or has friends that are as tasteless as the Pinterest and Facebook quotes they post, then by all means enjoy. Stupidity loves company." - Author: Shannon L. Alder

Quotes About Being Willing To Try

"Global citizenship means simply being willing to focus on the game, to notice the world and the people in it. It does not mean noticing your world, but the world. It means being conscious of the fact that you, and your country, are not the center of Gods universe. It is the recognition that the world is made up of people with similar needs, desires, responsibilities, and dreams. It is the willingness to connect to people all over the world, realizing that the choices you make each day affect them and that their decisions affect you. It is noticing that the world is your family." - Author: Holly Sprink

Quotes About Coppia

"E proprio perché gli abitanti delle città vanno in giro con un pugnale al fianco che non scoppiano mai risse o litigi. Se ottemperassero alla legge, che concede solo ai samurai di uscire armati, accaderebbe che gli uomini piu deboli verrebbero sempre sopraffatti dalla forza di quelli più imponenti. Invece, grazie al timore che un pugnale incute, anchessi possono tranquillamente inoltrasi da soli nelle più oscure tenebre della notte." - Author: Saikaku Ihara

Quotes About Hagia Sophia

"Like most Istanbul Turks I had little interest in Byzantium as a child. I associated the word with spooky, bearded, black-robed Greek Orthodox priests, with the aqueducts that still ran through the city, with the Hagia Sophia and the red brick walls of old churches. To me, these were remnants of an age so distant there was little need to know about it. Even the Ottomans who conquered Byzantium seemed very far away." - Author: Orhan Pamuk
