Quotes About Thirsty Hoes

"Spring flew swiftly by, and summer came; and if the village had been beautiful at first, it was now in the full glow and luxuriance of its richness. The great trees, which had looked shrunken and bare in the earlier months, had now burst into strong life and health; and stretching forth their green arms over the thirsty ground, converted open and naked spots into choice nooks, where was a deep and pleasant shade from which to look upon the wide prospect, steeped in sunshine, which lay stretched out beyond. The earth had donned her mantle of brightest green; and shed her richest perfumes abroad. It was the prime and vigour of the year; all things were glad and flourishing." - Author: Charles Dickens

Quotes About Hidden Emotions

"Dear God, what she saw in that look! How he had hidden these many years behind the guise of a simple schoolmaster, she didnt know. Anger, passion, lust, and surging hunger swirled in his stormy eyes. Emotions so stark, so strong, she didnt understand how he kept them under control. He looked as if he were about to attack her, ravish her, and conquer London and the world itself. He couldve been a warrior, a statesman, a king." - Author: Elizabeth Hoyt

Quotes About Footsteps In Life

"On moonlight nights the long, straight street and dirty white walls, nowhere darkened by the shadow of a tree, their peace untroubled by footsteps or a dogs bark, glimmered in the pale recession. The silent city was no more than an assemblage of huge, inert cubes, between which only the mute effigies of great men, carapaced in bronze, with their blank stone or metal faces, conjured up a sorry semblance of what the man had been. In lifeless squares and avenues these tawdry idols lorded it under the lowering sky; stolid monsters that might have personified the rule of immobility imposed on us, or, anyhow, its final aspect, that of a defunct city in which plague, stone, and darkness had effectively silenced every voice." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Life From Video Games

"Ultimately, the main reasons why I will be chubby for life are (1) I have virtually no hobbies except dieting. I cant speak any non-English languages, knit, ski, scrapbook, or cook. I have no pets. I dont know how to do drugs. I lost my passport three years ago when I moved into my house and never got it renewed. Video games scare me because they all seem to simulate situations Id hate to be in, like war or stealing cars. So if I ever lost weight I would also lose my only hobby; (2) I have no discipline; Im like if Private Benjamin had never toughened up but, in fact, got worse; (3) Guys Ive dated have been into me the way I am; and (4) Im pretty happy with the way I look, so long as I dont break a beach chair." - Author: Mindy Kaling

Quotes About Yelling

"I dreamt that I took William Burroughs penis and tied it up with piano wire. I hung him like a Chagall painting…In the next part J.G. Ballard swam through streets of female urine. The girls read his book Crash and then mowed him down with their Volkswagen, crushing his chest slowly against a brick wall. As he screamed in agony larger than representation can accommodate, they referred to his text and had orgasms. Later, they jumped up and down yelling, ‘Youre not a hero. Youre not a hero. Youre not. Youre not. Youre not. ""How do you analyze that part of the dream, Anna?"…"I guess Im nervous about my birthday." - Author: Sarah Schulman

Quotes About Good Music Taste

"Belize: Hell or heaven? [Roy indicates "Heaven" through a glance]Belize: Like San Francisco.Roy Cohn: A city. Good. I was worried... itd be a garden. I hate that shit.Belize: Mmmm. Big city. Overgrown with weeds, but flowering weeds. On every corner a wrecking crew and something new and crooked going up catty corner to that. Windows missing in every edifice like broken teeth, fierce gusts of gritty wind, and a gray high sky full of ravens.Roy Cohn: Isaiah.Belize: Prophet birds, Roy. Piles of trash, but lapidary like rubies and obsidian, and diamond-colored cowspit streamers in the wind. And voting booths.Roy Cohn: And a dragon atop a golden horde.Belize: And everyone in Balencia gowns with red corsages, and big dance palaces full of music and lights and racial impurity and gender confusion. And all the deities are creole, mulatto, brown as the mouths of rivers. Race, taste and history finally overcome. And you aint there.Roy Cohn: And Heaven?Belize: That was Heaven, Roy." - Author: Tony Kushner
