Rosamund Lupton Quotes

"Im a sliver-thin light, diamond sharp, that can slip through gaps in the world we know. I will come into your dreams and speak soft words when you think of me. There is no happy ever after - but there is an afterwards.This isnt our ending."

James Van Praagh Quotes

"As a spirit having a human experience, you can choose to not merely exist but to be fully conscious and aware of living in a limited world. When you take a conscious part in life and its multitudes of choices, you wont let life happen to you - you will make life happen for you."

Martha V Parravano Quotes

"Consider a small child sitting on his mothers lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the center of a closed circle - that of mothers body, arms, and the picture book... That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart form the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our societys technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic."

Quotes About Checking Your Work

"Why is networking not working? My answer is simple. Many business owners dont have a system in place to leverage their networking. Their time, effort and money spirals down the drain because they lack follow up. Instead of returning to your office, checking the email, and losing that business card in a graveyard box of business cards, continue connecting with your new acquaintance. One basic tip: Connect on social media within two days of meeting them. Personalize your message to them reminding them where you met. When you add this step, watch as your network expands exponentially." - Author: Lisa A. Mininni

Quotes About Medical Healing

"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship.

Quotes About Fake Ads

"Andrew just shrugged, and I fiddled with the napkin in my lap while glancing idly around the restaurant. The obligatory mirrors hung on the walls, and there was one of those fountains with fake lily pads in the entryway. The restaurant was also lit like a mine shaft. Ive never understood why dim lighting is supposed to be so romantic. Night vision belongs into a Paris Hilton sex tape - not in a restaurant that could potentially poison me with peanut sauce." - Author: Alicia Thompson

Quotes About Plain And Simple

"Shane knew this wasnt love, at least not any kind of love that extended beyond the desires of two selfish bodies. No future, only fleeting pleasure. This was addiction, plain and simple...irresistible need coupled with painful consequences and regret, moments of pure happiness like islands, spread out in a thrashing sea of insecurity and interminable waiting." - Author: Cara McKenna

Quotes About Users And Liars

"Evidence indicates that cats were first tamed in Egypt. The Egyptians stored grain, which attracted rodents, which attracted cats. (No evidence that such a thing happened with the Mayans, though a number of wild cats are native to the area.) I dont think this is accurate. It is certainly not the whole story. Cats didnt start as mousers. Weasels and snakes and dogs are more efficient as rodent-control agents. I postulate that cats started as psychic companions, as Familiars, and have never deviated from this function." - Author: William S. Burroughs
