Robert JA Gilbert Quotes

"A sword is only as good, or as evil, as its user. In good hands it defends the helpless and brings justice. In evil hands it leaves a swath of despair and suffering. The same goes for...laws--or anything, for that matter. Either good men use them for good, or evil men use them for evil, but they are not inherently good or evil in themselves."--Wenchel"

Neil Burger Quotes

"I know the movies that Ive liked, and I know the experience that theyve given me, so the goal is always to try to create a movie that I would like myself and that would knock me out, challenge me or intrigue me in some way.

Quotes About Not Always Smiling

"When I was five and Sarah seven, my mother went on a trip. She was gone from our home in Rochester, New York, for several days. But she was often gone — not always from the house but missing from our lives nonetheless. Then one day Sarah and I returned from school to find her standing at the door, a piñata in her hand, smiling her spellbinding, I-am-overjoyed-at-the-sight-of-you smile. Now when I imagine that scene, my minds eye puts a sombrero on her head, but I doubt she was wearing one. She had just come home from a trip to Juarez, Mexico, where she had obtained a quickie divorce. She told us she was taking us to live in Florida. We had no idea where – or what – Florida was. "There will be oranges there," she said. "Theyre everywhere. You can reach up and pull them off the trees." - Author: Katie Hafner

Quotes About Rays Of Sunlight

"Putting my hands on my hips, I sighed. "Okay, heres what were going to do. Were going to Unseelie territory, and youre all going to protect me with whatever faerie mojo you have, because Im pretty sure the Dark Queen will not be very excited to see me. And then Im going to talk to them.""Talk to them?" the Light Queen asked."Yes," I said, trying to compose a poem on her beauty comparing her to the light of the dawn, to the rays of sunlight piercing clouds after a thunderstorm, to . . . Evelyn. I shook my head, trying to clear it. "Gosh, cant you at least try to turn it down? Anyway. Were going to talk to them. If theyre anything like your court, a lot of them probably think their queen is a freaking idiot."The Light Queens side, white eyebrows rose like a question mark." - Author: Kiersten White

Quotes About Jehovah

"Did I exist before my birth? No. Shall I exist after death? No. What am I? A little dust collected in an organism. What am I to do on this earth? The choice rests with me: suffer or enjoy. Whither will suffering lead me? To nothingness; but I shall have suffered. Whither will enjoyment lead me? To nothingness; but I shall have enjoyed myself. My choice is made. One must eat or be eaten. I shall eat. It is better to be the tooth than the grass. Such is my wisdom. After which, go whither I push thee, the grave-digger is there; the Pantheon for some of us: all falls into the great hole. End. Finis. Total liquidation. This is the vanishing-point. Death is death, believe me. I laugh at the idea of there being any one who has anything to tell me on that subject. Fables of nurses; bugaboo for children; Jehovah for men. No; our to-morrow is the night. Beyond the tomb there is nothing but equal nothingness." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Lucy Westenra

"And then as we looked the white figure moved forwards again. It was now near enough for us to see clearly, and the moonlight still held. My own heart grew cold as ice, and I could hear the gasp of Arthur, as we recognized the features of Lucy Westenra. Lucy Westenra, but yet how changed. The sweetness was turned to adamantine, heartless cruelty, and the purity to voluptuous wantonness." - Author: Bram Stoker

Quotes About Attention In Relationships

"Changes in Relationship with others:It is especially hard to trust other people if you have been repeatedly abused, abandoned or betrayed as a child. Mistrust makes it very difficult to make friends, and to be able to distinguish between good and bad intentions in other people. Some parts do not seem to trust anyone, while other parts may be so vulnerable and needy that they do not pay attention to clues that perhaps a person is not trustworthy. Some parts like to be close to others or feel a desperate need to be close and taken care of, while other parts fear being close or actively dislike people. Some parts are afraid of being in relationships while others are afraid of being rejected or criticized. This naturally sets up major internal as well as relational conflicts." - Author: Suzette Boon

Quotes About Quality Craftsmanship

"Cheap objects resist involvement. We tend to invest less in their purchase, care, and maintenance, and thats part of what makes them so attractive. Cheap clothing lines—sold at discounters such as Target and H & M—are like IKEA emblems of the "cheap chic" where styles fills in for whatever quality goes lacking. There is nothing sinister in this, no deliberate planned obsolescence. These objects are not designed to fall apart, nor are they crafted not to fall apart. In many cases we know this and accept it, and have entered into a sort of compact. Perhaps we dont even want the object to last forever. Such voluntary obsolescence makes craftsmanship beside the point. We have grown to expect and even relish the easy birth and early death of objects." - Author: Ellen Ruppel Shell

Quotes About Valets

"The best servants of the people, like the best valets, must whisper unpleasant truths in the masters ear. It is the court fool, not the foolish courtier, whom the king can least afford to lose." - Author: Walter Lippmann

Quotes About Thrall

"Consider the whole thing as occupational therapy. Power as cottage industry for the mad. The shepherd is slave to the sheep. A gardener is in thrall to his carrots. Only a lunatic would want to be president. These lunatics are created deliberately by those who wish to be presided over. Youve seen it a thousand times. We create a leader by locating one in the crowd who is standing up. This may well be because there are no chairs or because his knees are fused by arthritis. It doesnt matter. We designate this victim as a stand-up guy by the simple expedient of sitting down around him." - Author: Katherine Dunn

Quotes About Pen Pals

"Charis sipped, smiling back. "...I saw God everywhere."Grif narrowed his eyes. "Really?"She nodded and leaned close. "We were actually pen pals. Id write Him letters in Latin and leave them in my closet.""Why the closet?"She shrugged. "Because He didnt appear after I set my front yards bushes on fire, so I decided He was shy." - Author: Vicki Pettersson
