Anatole Broyard Quotes

"For him that stealeth, or borroweth and returneth not, this book from its owner, let it change into a serpent in his hand and rend him. Let him be struck with palsy, and all his members blasted. Let him languish in pain, crying aloud for mercy, and let there be no surcease to this agony till he sing in dissolution. Let bookworms gnaw his entrails…and when at last he goeth to his final punishment, let the flames of Hell consume him forever."— Anonymous Curse on Book Theives from the Monaster of San Pedro, Barcelona, Spain"

Quotes About Ready For Spring

"Corbulo: a name to conjure with, a name to follow into battle, wherever he led; a name to have a man marching to the gates of Rome, crying Imperator! until the crowds and the idiot senate and the corrupt wax-brains of the Praetorian Guard and every other man with voting powers in the city came to understand what we already knew: that this man should be our emperor, that Rome would thrive under his rule, in place of the fool who presently held the throne.Corbulo, who stood before us that bright, brisk spring afternoon and watched as our centurions bawled us through our paces, and then as Cadus took charge and marched us through the display that we had been practising, if we were honest, for the last four years, just for this moment." - Author: M.C. Scott

Quotes About Bragging About Material Things

"I see what grief does, how it strips you bare, shows you all the things you dont want to know. That loss doesnt end, that there isnt a moment where you are done, when you can neatly put it away and move on." - Author: Elizabeth Scott

Quotes About Universe And Stars

"Remember that if I were born of the underworld, you were born of flowers. You are the blood the forest feeds upon, and it is you who gave the woods their dark magic. Time doesnt exist, and in another world I never left you. Ive transformed your wounds into a scepter for a queen. The nightcatcher may think that shes had her victory - but your veins are buried in the map of the earth and she can never have you. She thinks she can own the universe because shes enslaved gods and eaten stars, but she couldnt even kill me, living here in her tunnels, because you protected me with your love." - Author: Autumn Christian

Quotes About Being His Last Love

"His desperation and misery swept her up like a storm capturing the sea. She turned her mind to even these feelings, because they were his, like his terrified rage in the lift when they had first met, being wrapped in his arms in the cold well, being dazzled by his wonder at the woods and her home and her. Like being a child, awareness of him the morning chorus that woke her and the lullaby that sent her to sleep, his thoughts always her first and last song.I love you, Kami told him, and cut." - Author: Sarah Rees Brennan

Quotes About Gave Up

"About the same time I came in contact with another Christian family. At their suggestion I attended the Wesleyan church every Sunday. For these days I also had their standing invitation to dinner. The church did not make a favourable impression on me. The sermons seemed to be uninspiring. The congregation did not strike me as being particularly religious. They were not an assembly of devout souls; they appeared rather to be wordly-minded people, going to church for recreation and in conformity to custom. Here, at times, I would involuntarily doze. I was ashamed, but some of my neighbours, who were in no better case, lightened the shame. I could not go on long like this, and soon gave up attending the service." - Author: Mahatma Gandhi

Quotes About Troubled Daughters

"No one was ever good enough for anybodys precious sons. No one ever called daughters precious, and why was that? Things had not changed very much. In the end women like Emily and Ingrid and Freya and Joanna only had one another to lean on. The men were wonderful when they were around, but their fires burned too bright, they lived too close to the sun - look what happened to her boy, and to her man. Gone. Women only had one another in the end." - Author: Melissa de la Cruz
