Marc Acito Quotes

"So I kept reading, just to stay alive. In fact, Id read two or three books at the same time, so I wouldnt finish one without being in the middle of another -- anything to stop me from falling into the big, gaping void. You see, books fill the empty spaces. If Im waiting for a bus, or am eating alone, I can always rely on a book to keep me company. Sometimes I think I like them even more than people. People will let you down in life. Theyll disappoint you and hurt you and betray you. But not books. Theyre better than life."

Jimmy Spithill Quotes

Quotes About My Best Friend Getting Married

"Perhaps it would sound too paradoxical to say that these two saints saved us from Spirituality; a dreadful doom. Perhaps it may be misunderstood if I say that St. Francis, for all his love of animals, saved us from being Buddhists; and that St. Thomas, for all his love of Greek philosophy, saved us from being Platonists. But it is best to say the truth in its simplest form; that they both reaffirmed the Incarnation, by bringing God back to earth." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Placid

"Tina sognava acque placide e un sole nascosto da fronde e nuvole che non esistevano. Il sole dimprovviso si è fatto notte, una notte guasta e pesante. Lacqua si è infettata, agitandosi torbida intorno a lei, trasformando un lieve nuotare in un isterico annaspare in cerca daria. I riflessi sono diventati tenebre e la solitudine minaccia. Presenze ovunque intorno a lei, dietro ombre che prima nemmeno esistevano. Centinaia di occhi la scrutano malevoli, centinaia di ansiti, tutti appartenenti ad un unico padrone. Lei lunico oggetto della sua attenzione." - Author: Paolo Ferrara
