[What I Remembered Most Clearly About This Jinja Road Was That On Portions Of It, For Reasons No One Could Explain, Butterflies Settled In Long Fluffy Tracts. There Might Be Eighty Feet Of Road Carpeted By White Butterflies, So Many Of Them That If You Drove Too Fast Your Tires Lost Their Grip, And Some People Lost Their Lives, Skidding On Butterflies.]

Ramana Maharishi Quotes

"If one knows the truth that all that one gives to others is giving only to oneself, who indeed will not be a virtuous person and perform the kind act of giving to others? Since everyone is ones own Self, whoever does whatever to whomever is doing it only to himself."

Steve Antin Quotes

"I love actors. I love working with actors. I really enjoy the process. I love having those in-depth discussions about the interior of their character, and actors really love to discuss that, too. I could talk about that for days with them. They love that, and I love that."

Linda Lavin Quotes

"Once you have the pattern of life of this person, the choreography, so to speak, you have the canvas that you present eight times a week, not without feeling underneath it, but its not as churning as the discovery process was."

Sengcan Quotes

Quotes About Anklets

"WHEN I GO ALONE AT NIGHTWHEN I go alone at night to my love-tryst, birds do not sing, the wind does not stir, the houses on both sides of the street stand silent.It is my own anklets that grow loud at every step and I am ashamed.When I sit on my balcony and listen for his footsteps, leaves do not rustle on the trees, and the water is still in the river like the sword on the knees of a sentry fallen asleep.It is my own heart that beats wildly -- I do not know how to quiet it.When my love comes and sits by my side, when my body trembles and my eyelids droop, the night darkens, the wind blows out the lamp, and the clouds draw veils over the stars.It is the jewel at my own breast that shines and gives light. I do not know how to hide it." - Author: Rabindranath Tagore

Quotes About Looks In A Relationship

"But what is the sense in forever speculating what might have happened had such and such a moment turned out differently? One could presumably drive oneself to distraction in this way. In any case, while it is all very well to talk of turning points, one can surely only recognize such moments in retrospect. Naturally, when one looks back to such instances today, they may indeed take the appearance of being crucial, precious moments in ones life; but of course, at the time, this was not the impression one had. Rather, it was as though one had available a never-ending number of days, months, years in which to sort out the vagaries of ones relationship with Miss Kenton; an infinite number of further opportunities in which to remedy the effect of this or that misunderstanding. There was surely nothing to indicate at the time that such evidently small incidents would render whole dreams forever irredeemable." - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro

Quotes About Materialism

"I talk about love, forgiveness, social justice; I rage against American materialism in the name of alturism, but have I even controlled my own heart? The overwhelming majority of time I spend thinking about myself, pleasing myself, reassuring myself, and when I am done there is nothing to spare for the needy. Six billion people live in this world, and I can only muster thoughts for one. Me." - Author: Donald Miller

Quotes About Wives

"Never has God given waivers to family members, just because they had bad leaders. In Jonahs time, the entire family of Israel had become unacceptable, but never has any Israelite administration been without some injustice, intolerance and alienation from God--much less todays earthly family. Even during the celebrated reign of Solomon, Solomon was multiplying wives and horses--against Gods written counsel. It has always been so.Regardless, Israel was one family. They were expected to stick together whether they were in exile, or at home living in abundance. No deserters, or pious arm-folders were allowed. As Jonah discovered, no quitters were allowed.
