"But for their cries,The herons would be lostAmidst the morning snow."

Pat Walsh Quotes

"You have made some notes, read some writing books, and done some research. Mostly what youve done is talk about writing a book. An idea for a book is not a book; it is a waste of time. There is no singular thing that makes someone a writer, but there is one thing that makes someone a joke--talking about writing a book without doing any work."

Robyn Quaker Quotes

"You must be clever, Tracey to do these forgeries.""Shes not clever. I did them," yelled Frieda."Youll get five years.""She did them."From Halfpennies and Blue Vinyl"

Maria Renteria Quotes

"If you give yor work life, your work will give you life. Vise-versa"

Veronica Mist Quotes

"I somewhat understand now why He favored all of you so much. And why one of us had been jealous, led the quarter of the others, and had been casted down. Theres a little of Him in all of you," Sigrid uttered after a while, and then she rested her palm on Ryans chest. "In here, He gave all of you not only the power to choose but the authority to perceive things properly—with heart."

Michael J Gerson Quotes

"To restrict or legalize abortion, to allow or forbid gay marriage, a legislator would need to write and pass a law, get it signed by the president or a governor, and perhaps override a veto. A Supreme Court justice need only persuade four other people. If he or she is not internally constrained by the authority of a text, he or she is not constrained."

Carter Burwell Quotes

"Carefully execute every instruction given to you by the director, producer, and studio. But that would be a life not worth living."

CS Friedman Quotes

"The Tyr had tried. It had really tried. It must have gone over every element of human psychology, tried desperately to understand the nature of human aesthetic sense … and then failed, miserably, in every regard."

Andres Iniesta Quotes

"My father has made a museum with my cuttings and photographs."

Quotes About Dilly

"What is meant by "reality"? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable—now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech—and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Alphabets

"He looked past Chin toward streams of numbers running in opposite directions. He understood how much it meant to him, the roll and flip of data on a screen. He studied the figural diagrams that brought organic patterns into play, birdwing and chambered shell. It was shallow thinking to maintain that numbers and charts were the cold compression of unruly human energies, every sort of yearning and midnight sweat reduced to lucid units in the financial markets. "In fact data itself was soulful and glowing, a dynamic aspect of the life process. This was the eloquence of alphabets and numeric systems, now fully realized in electronic form, in the zero-oneness of the world, the digital imperative that defined every breath of the planets living billions. Here was the heave of the biosphere. Our bodies and oceans were here, knowable and whole." - Author: Don DeLillo

Quotes About Curse Words

"Damnú air." "Youre cussing!" "I refuse to admit to uttering bad words in any language." Patrick grinned and his teeth flashed white. "Jenny has been Googling German insults. I dont want her to look up Gaelic next." Oh Lord. I tried not to think about what kind of information Jenny discovered in her search. "You let her Google curse words?" "She said it was for educational purposes." "Yeah, right. You are so fired as the baby-sitter." - Author: Michele Bardsley

Quotes About Barbara Kingsolver

"Both vitamin pills and vegetables are loaded with essential nutrients, but not in the same combinations. Spinach is a good source of both vitamin C and iron. As it happens, vitamin C boosts iron absorption, allowing the body to take in more of it than if the mineral were introduced alone. When I first started studying nutrition, I became fascinated with these coincidences, realizing of course theyre not coincidences. Human bodies and their complex digestive chemistry evolved over millenia in response to all the different foods--mostly plants--they raised or gathered from the land surrounding them. They may have died young from snakebite or blunt trauma, but they did not have diet-related illnesses like heart disease and Type II diabetes that are prevalent in our society now, even in some young adults and children.

Quotes About A Mothers Stretch Marks

"Dont tell thin women to eat a cheeseburger. Dont tell fat women to put down the fork. Dont tell underweight men to bulk up. Dont tell women with facial hair to wax, dont tell uncircumcised men theyre gross, dont tell muscular women to go easy on the dead-lift, dont tell dark-skinned women to bleach their vagina, dont tell black women to relax their hair, dont tell flat-chested women to get breast implants, dont tell "apple-shaped" women whats "flattering," dont tell mothers to hide their stretch marks, and dont tell people whose toes you dont approve of not to wear flip-flops. And so on, etc, etc, in every iteration until the mountains crumble to the sea. Basically, just go ahead and CEASE telling other human beings what they "should" and "shouldnt" do with their bodies unless a) you are their doctor, or b) SOMEBODY GODDAMN ASKED YOU." - Author: Lindy West
