[When We Got Back To The House Logan Grabbed His Basketball, Threw It Really Hard Against The Hallway Wall, Knocked The Framed Family Photo To The Floor-it Didn't Break, He Didn't Pick It Up-and Left With A Couple Of His Friends. Thebes Picked Up The Photo, Hung It Back On The Wall, Sighed Heavily Like She'd Travelled To Every Corner Of The World, On Her Knees, With A Knife In Her Back And A Boa Constrictor Wrapped Around Her Chest, And Then Made Us A Couple Of Blueberry Smoothies.]

Peter Loptson Quotes

"[On Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz]The answer is unknowable, but it may not be unreasonable to see him, at least in theological terms, as essentially a deist. He is a determinist: there are no miracles (the events so called being merely instances of infrequently occurring natural laws); Christ has no real role in the system; we live forever, and hence we carry on after our deaths, but then everything — every individual substance — carries on forever."

Jerry Stahl Quotes

"Theres no deodorant for desperation."

Casey Abrams Quotes

"If I shave, I dont have a chin anymore."

Oli Hille Quotes

"You only get one body; it is the temple of your soul. Even God is willing to dwell there. If you truly treat your body like a temple, it will serve you well for decades. If you abuse it you must be prepared for poor health and a lack of energy."

Selma Dabbagh Quotes

"We cant just run away. Its our land. Our people. We have a duty."

Maryse Holder Quotes

"That was the next-to-last time I felt any desire. And he was pale and tall (how disgusting tall men are, such a waste of space and flesh, so uncompact). (I am hideous myself now. Discovered in new, M.C., mirror that skin is a jungle of pearly stretch marks all over. Face sags too. Always new awful discoveries. If could only vomit up age like the food I relentlessly wolf.)"

Susan Lynn Peterson Quotes

"When Americans find out I grew up in the tenements, the question they invariably ask me is "how did you end up there?" Americans, it seems, find comfort in reasons and explanations. They honestly believe that if they can find the reason for someone elses misfortune, they can avoid that misfortune themselves. If they could find out how I ended up in the tenements, they could assure themselves that it could never have happened to them."

Verity Louise Marshall Quotes

"If just one person has done it, it can be done. by V.L. Marshall"

Peter Jackson Quotes

"A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to."

Quotes About Clouded Vision

"Why am I so drawn to you?" He muttered, almost to himself. "Why is it so hard to let go? I thought... at first... it was Ariella, that you remind me of so much. But its not." Though he didnt smile, his eyes lightened a shade. "Youre far more stubborn than she ever was." I sniffed. "Thats like the pot calling the kettle black," I whispered, and a faint, tiny grin finally crossed his face, before his expression clouded and he lowered his head, touching his forehead to mine. "What do you want of me, Meghan?" he asked, a low thread of anguish flickering below the surface. Tears blurred my vision, all the fear and heartache of the past few days rising to the surface. "Just you," I whispered. "I just want you."-Ash and Meghan" - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Lasting Influence

"[T]his readiness to assume the guilt for the threats to our environment is deceptively reassuring: We like to be guilty since, if we are guilty, it all depends on us. We pull the strings of the catastrophe, so we can also save ourselves simply by changing our lives. What is really hard for us (at least in the West) to accept is that we are reduced to the role of a passive observer who sits and watches what our fate will be. To avoid this impotence, we engage in frantic, obsessive activities. We recycle old paper, we buy organic food, we install long-lasting light bulbs—whatever—just so we can be sure that we are doing something. We make our individual contribution like the soccer fan who supports his team in front of a TV screen at home, shouting and jumping from his seat, in the belief that this will somehow influence the games outcome." - Author: Slavoj Žižek

Quotes About The Futility Of War

"Suddenly the clouds seem high above us. Theyre moving over us in an arch, circling the planet. They have seen abysmal oceans and charred, scorched islands. They have seen how we destroyed the world. If I could see everything, as the clouds do, would I swirl around this remaining continent, still so full of color and life and seasons, wanting to protect it? Or would I just laugh at the futility of it all, and meander onward, down the earths sloping atmosphere?" - Author: Lauren DeStefano

Quotes About Not Needing God

"God comes right out and tells us why he gives us more money than we need. Its not so we can find more ways to spend it. Its not so we can indulge ourselves and spoil our children.

Quotes About Scoring Points

"I think my personal minimum score for anything Im thinking about doing--knitting or not--is about a seven on the interest scale. If somethings scoring a five, like a movie, then I need to add at least two points of knitting to do it for me to be able to hang in.If its something gripping, like a conversation with a charming and entertaining friend, I may not need to add much knitting at all. If my friend scores a nine, I might only toss in a plain sock, with no patterning or anything, just round and round on autopilot while we visit. (I can only think of one thing I do with another person that really has no room to add any sort of knitting to, but lets not discuss it here.)" - Author: Stephanie Pearl McPhee

Quotes About Risky

"By seeing the multitude of people around it, by being busied with all sorts of worldly affairs, by being wise to the ways of the world, such a person forgets himself, in a divine sense forgets his own name, dares not believe in himself, finds being himself too risky, finds it much easier and safer to be like the others, to become a copy, a number, along with the crowd. Now this form of despair goes practically unnoticed in the world. Precisely by losing oneself in this way, such a person gains all that is required for a flawless performance in everyday life, yes, for making a great success out of life. Here there is no dragging of the feet, no difficulty with his self and its infinitizing, he is ground smooth as a pebble, as exchangeable as a coin of the realm. Far from anyone thinking him to be in despair, he is just what a human being ought to be. Naturally, the world has generally no understanding of what is truly horrifying." - Author: Søren Kierkegaard
