[When You Chopped Logs With The Ax And They Split Open They Smelled Beautiful, Like Christmas. But When You Split Someone's Head Open It Smelled Like Abattoir And Quite Overpowered The Scent Of The Wild Lilacs You'd Cut And Brought Into The House Only This Morning, Which Was Already Another Life.]

Jenn LeBlanc Quotes

"Samsons grace and surefootedness at breakneck paces was the closest Roxleigh had ever come to some semblance of peace in his life. His head was never clearer, his nerves were never calmer, and his mind was never more unbound than when he rode Samson. He listened to the horses steady breathing, the exertion of his exhalations, and the steady beat of his hooves, punctuated by the swift silence of the jumps and the exclamation of the landing, like a staccato symphony. His mind unfurled its stressed tethers with the smooth action of Samson at full speed."

Stephen J Gould Quotes

"Our planet is not fragile at its own timescale and we, pitiful latecomers in the last microsecond of our planetary year, are stewards of nothing in the long run."

Jeffrey Tate Quotes

"In Hamburg, there are three major orchestras, an opera house, and one of the great concert-hall acoustics in Europe at the Laeiszhalle, in a town a fifth the size of London. And thats not unusual. In Germany, there are dozens of towns with two or three orchestras. The connection with music goes very, very deep."

Tulsidas Quotes

"Lord Ram gave Hanuman a quizzical look and said, "What are you, a monkey or a man?" Hanuman bowed his head reverently, folded his hands and said, "When I do not know who I am, I serve You and when I do know who I am, You and I are One."

Larry Crabb Quotes

"I find it much easier to counsel than to be counseled, to reach out to a friend in my small group who is feeling insercure than to reveal my own inseurity. The truth is we dont much like being dependent. We dont enjoy admitting how depeately we long for someones kindness and involvement. Its so humbling."

Lorena Bathey Quotes

"You have been given a second chance to start your life over. You cant throw this opportunity away. If you do you will be a colossal fool. If you get the chance to do something and dont do it then youll simply live with regret. Thats a worse situation than trying something daring and maybe not succeeding. At least you tried. Isnt that what you want to show your kids?"

Ka Hancock Quotes

"Il medico di Mickey mi guardò per qualche istante poi fece un profondo respiro. « Lucy, ogni matrimonio è una danza; a volte complicata, a volte deliziosa, il più delle volte senza eventi rilevanti. Ma con Mickey ci saranno momenti in cui la vostra danza sarà sui vetri rotti. Sarà dolorosa. O fuggirete da questo dolore o vi terrete ancora più stretti e danzerete su questi vetri fino a un punto meno accidentato. »"

Shaun Jeffrey Quotes

"His whole life was a sham, a fairy tale. The truth hidden behind a wall of lies, each lie another brick in the wall until he probably couldnt see the truth anymore."

Quotes About Interfering

"Packard wrestles off his jacket and shirt. He ignores me, leaning far over to the side, reaching down into the rocks. He comes back with a handful of slime, which he swipes across his chest, smearing it over the solid planes of his muscles. "What the hell are you doing?""Interfering with his concentration. Vulnerability and a lack of logic will disturb him. And the bricks exert a pull…""Hold up!" he calls out. "I have to tell you something! Midcity is purchasing the Great Wall of China!" What? Has he gone insane? "Midcity is importing the wall, brick by brick, right now!"He strides, totally unprotected, toward where the Brick Slinger hides.

Quotes About Pebble Beach

"And even as this old guide-book boasts of the, to us, insignificant Liverpool of fifty years ago, the New York guidebooks are now vaunting of the magnitude of a town, whose future inhabitants, multitudinous as the pebbles on the beach, and girdled in with high walls and towers, flanking endless avenues of opulence and taste, will regard all our Broadways and Bowerys as but the paltry nucleus to their Nineveh. From far up the Hudson, beyond Harlem River where the young saplings are now growing, that will overarch their lordly mansions with broad boughs, centuries old; they may send forth explorers to penetrate into the then obscure and smoky alleys of the Fifth Avenue and Fourteenth Street; and going still farther south, may exhume the present Doric Custom-house, and quote it as a proof that their high and mighty metropolis enjoyed a Hellenic antiquity." - Author: Herman Melville

Dee said, flapping a hand dismissively."Shes the best storyteller, too," Annabelle added. "Or she was before she dropped off the face of the earth. Whereve you been hiding, woman?"The woman drew a deep breath and her golden eyes dampened. "Actually, I fell in love.""Oh, Dee!" Annabelle crooned, clasping the womans hand. "How wonderful.""Otto Z. Otto." The woman sniffed. "May he rest…""Dr. Otto," Daniel said, stepping out of the doorway. "You knew Dr. Otto?""Backwards and forwards." - Author: Lauren Kate
