Don A Martinez Quotes

"As Ariel recounted the events of her dream, two magnificent, batlike wings grew from the backs of her shoulders, stretched as if preparing to fly, then retreated back into their host. The sound heard when the wings disappear is the giggling of Alanna, who watched the event much the same way I did, in rapt wonder."

John Galliano Quotes

Quotes About Staying Awake At Night

"The rules for reading yourself to sleep are easier to follow than are the rules for staying awake while reading. Get into bed in a comfortable position, make sure the light is inadequate enough to cause slight eyestrain, choose a book that is either terribly difficult or terribly boring—in any event, one that you do not really care whether you read or not—and you will be asleep in a few minutes. Those who are experts in relaxing with a book do not have to wait for nightfall. A comfortable chair in the library will do any time" - Author: Mortimer J. Adler

Quotes About Serbian War

"...while hiding in plain sight in Belgrade, undercover as a New Age mountebank, Karadžić frequented a bar called Mad House - Luda kuća. Mad House offered weekly gusle-accompanied performances of Serbian epic poetry; wartime pictures of him and General Ratko Mladić, the Bosnian Serbs military leader (now on trial in The Hague), proudly hung on the walls. A local newspaper claimed that, on at least one occasion, Karadžić performed an epic poem in which he himself featured as the main hero, undertaking feats of extermination. Consider the horrible postmodernism of the situation: an undercover war criminal narrating his own crimes in decasyllabic verse, erasing his personality so that he could assert it more forcefully and heroically." - Author: Aleksandar Hemon

Quotes About Miscommunication

"Most people are just too self-absorbed, well-meaning, and lazy to bother orchestrating Machiavellian plans to slight or insult us. Its more often a boring, complicated story of wrong assumptions, miscommunication, bad administration, and cover-ups—people trying, and mostly failing, to do the right thing, hurting each other not because thats their intention but because its impossible to avoid." - Author: Tim Kreider

Quotes About Whatsapp Last Seen

"You see, because [Norfolk is] stuck out here on the east, on this hump jutting into the sea, its not on the way to anywhere. People going north and south, they bypass it altogether. For that reason, its a peaceful corner of England, rather nice. But its also something of a lost corner.Someone claimed after the lesson that Miss Emily had said Norfolk was Englands lost corner because that was were all the lost property found in the country ended up.Ruth said one evening, looking out at the sunset, that when we lost something precious, and wed looked and looked and still couldnt find it, then we didnt have to be completely heartbroken. We still had that last bit of comfort, thinking one day, when we were grown up, and we were free to travel the country, we could always go and find it again in Norfolk." - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro

Quotes About Heron

"si tu examines mon empire tu ten iras voir les forgerons et les trouveras forgeant des clous et se passionnant pour les clous et te chantant les cantiques de la clouterie. Puis tu ten iras voir les bucherons et tu les trouveras abattant arbres et se passionnant pour labattage darbres, et se remplissant dune intense jubilation à lheure de la fête du bucheron, qui est du premier craquement, lorsque la majesté de larbre commence de se prosterner. Et si tu vas voir les astronaumes, tu les verras se passionnant pour les étoiles et nécoutant plus que leur silence. Et en effet chacun simagine être tel. Maintenant si je te demande: "Que se passe-t-il dans mon empire, que naîtra-t-il demain chez moi?" tu me diras: "On forgera des clous, on abattra des arbres, on observera les étoiles et il y aura donc des réserves de clous, des réserves de bois et des observations détoiles." Car myope et le nez contre, tu nas point reconnu la construction dun navire.(chapitre CXVII)" - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry
