"People have a tendency to see country life through rose-colored glasses."

Jean Klein Quotes

"The root of all desires is the one desire: to come home, to be at peace. There may be a moment in life when our compensatory activities, the accumulation of money, learning and objects, leaves us feeling deeply apathetic. This can motivate us towards the search for our real nature beyond appearances. We may find ourselves asking, Why am I here? What is life? Who am I? Sooner or later any intelligent person asks these questions. What you are looking for is what you already are, not what you will become. What you already are is the answer and the source of the question. In this lies its power of transformation. It is a present actual fact. Looking to become something is completely conceptual, merely an idea. The seeker will discover that he is what he seeks and that what he seeks is the source of the inquiry."

Stephanie Georgopulus Quotes

"Miss someone until they come back, or until you come back, until their absence in your life becomes something to be avoided at all costs. Miss them until you dont have to anymore, until youre reunited in your favorite booth in your favorite restaurant ordering your favorite meal, miss them until it feels like you never left. Or miss them until you cant anymore, until the things you miss are identified and cataloged as things and not a person, until you figure out that easy company and long talks and unblinking, all-knowing eye contact will find you again the way they found you the first time. Miss someone until you dont."

Georges Braque Quotes

"There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain."

Judith Martin Quotes

"It is, indeed, a trial to maintain the virtue of humility when one cant help being right."

Quotes About Hated By Someone

"I have to figure out why I worked at a job I hated for years. I have to find out why I cant see what everyone else sees in me. I dont feel beautiful.

I cant see me and I need to be able to do that. I need to find out what Im like and what I want.

Quotes About Neglected By Someone

"We still (sometimes) remember that we cannot be free if our minds and voices are controlled by someone else.

One reason to eat responsibly is to live free. (pg. 323, The Pleasures of Eating)" - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Inattention

"I dont think science is hard to teach because humans arent ready for it, or because it arose only through a fluke, or because, by and large, we dont have the brainpower to grapple with it. Instead, the enormous zest for science that I see in first-graders and the lesson from the remnant hunter-gatherers both speak eloquently: A proclivity for science is embedded deeply within us, in all times, places, and cultures. It has been the means for our survival. It is our birthright. When, through indifference, inattention, incompetence, or fear of skepticism, we discourage children from science, we are disenfranchising them, taking from them the tools needed to manage their future." - Author: Carl Sagan
