Quotes About Free Like A Bird

He thought there should have been something sad about how little he was tied up with the place, but instead it felt like freedom. He was free because it wasnt his water here, and they werent his fish." - Author: Maile Meloy

Quotes About Myself And My Life

"Why should I keep myself so safe?" he asked her, but he was almost asking himself. What is there in my life worth preserving? With a good wife back there in the mountains, serviceable as an old spoon, dry in the heart from having been scared of marriage since she was six? With three children so shy of their father, the Prince of the Arjikis, that they will hardly come near him? With a careworn clan moving here, moving there, going through th same disputes, herding the same herds, as thy have done for five hundred years? And me, with a shallow and undirected mind, no artfulness in word or habit, no especial kindness toward the world? What is there that makes my life worth preserving?"I love you," said Elphaba."So thats that then, and thats it," he answered her and himself. "And I love you. So I promise to be careful." - Author: Gregory Maguire

Quotes About Jigsaw Puzzles

"In so far as I listen with interest to a record, its usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. Its a bit like jigsaw puzzles.
