"People who expect too much are always disappointed. You would do well to remember that, my boy."

Sarah Hall Quotes

"I lost the ability to fear and panic. Instead I felt practical and causal. I had never known time to pass so acutely before. I sat out through the night with the patrol, watching the bitter glow of stars overhead, listening as the season exhaled and the layers of vegetation shrugged and compressed, like the ashes of burnt wood. On the hills I was aware of every corporeal moment, every cycle of light. I felt every fibre of myself conveying energy, and I understood that it was finite, that the chances I had in life would not come again."

Shinji Moon Quotes

"There is a shipwreck between your ribs and it took eighteen yearsfor me to understand how to understand your kind of drowning.There are people who cannot be held quietly. There are screamsthat are never externalized. If I looked at the photo albums of yourpast twenty years, all I would find are decibel meter graphs ofphone calls and the intensity of your silence as you sat smoking cigarettes in the garage.There is a shipwreck between your ribs. You are a box withfragile written on it, and so many people have not handled youwith care.And for the first time, I understand that I will never knowhow to apologize for beingone of them."

Quotes About Grandma Love

"Please dont hate you??!! I hate that I love you. Loving you made me waste a year of my life. Lovingyou made me be passionate about nothing but you.

Loving you made me turn out bitter andhopeless like her. Loving you made me hate myself for being dumped by you. Loving you made medeluded, irrational, inconsiderate, and a liar. And because I love you, youre always going to haunt me." - Author: Daria Snadowsky

Quotes About Disabled Parents

"Parents early responses to and interactions with a child determine how that child comes to view himself. These parents are also profoundly changed by their experiences. If you have a child with a disability, you are forever the parent of a disabled child; it is one of the primary facts about you, fundamental to the way other people perceive and decipher you. Such parents tend to view aberrance as illness until habituation and love enable them to cope with their odd new reality—often by introducing the language of identity. Intimacy with difference fosters its accommodation." - Author: Andrew Solomon

Quotes About Responsible Person

"Affairs are like a seventh day. They are a break from all duties and obligations and responsibilities. Im not saying this is right and Im not saying it lightly. This is just how they are. You cant be responsible when youre with your lover. And since you already know youre way out of line, you go the extra distance. You throw yourself in headfirst. You become the very personification of irresponsible. You are way alive. Every detail sings. It would be a great way to live if it werent so ruinous." - Author: Wendy Plump

Quotes About Porter Beer

"Weve been told that with regard to seduction, "candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker," but in truth, rather, properly selected: "candy makes randy; liquor makes desire flicker"; or, as Shakespeares porter said to Macduff: "[drink] provokes the desire but it takes away the performance." The wines and beers of antiquity, however, which were potent infusions of innumerable psychoactive plants, often requiring dilution with water and in which alcohol served rather as preservative then inebriating active principle." - Author: Rick Doblin

Quotes About Someone Insulting You

"At first glance it seems strange that the attitude of the anti-Semite can be equated with that of the negrophobe. It was my philosophy teacher from the Antilles who reminded me one day: "When you hear someone insulting the Jews pay attention; he is talking about you." And I believed at the time he was universally right, meaning that I was responsible in my body and my soul for the fate reserved for my brother. Since then, I have understood that what he meant quite simply was the anti-Semite is inevitably a negrophobe." - Author: Frantz Fanon

Quotes About Rosas

"Fui acusado de ser um utópico, de querer eliminar o desprazer do mundo e defender apenas o prazer. Contudo, tenho declarado claramente que a educação tradicional torna as pessoas incapazes para o prazer encouraçando-as contra o desprazer. Prazer e alegria de viver são inconcebíveis sem luta, experiências dolorosas e embates desagradáveis consigo mesmo. A saúde psíquica não se caracteriza pela teoria do nirvana dos iogues e dos budistas, nem pela hedonismo dos epicuristas, nem pela renúncia monástica; caracteriza-se, isso sim, pela alternância entre a luta desprazerosa e a felicidade, o erro e a verdade, o desvio e a correção da rota, a raiva racional e o amor racional; em suma, estar plenamente vivo em todas as situações da vida. A capacidade de suportar o desprazer e a dor sem se tornar amargurado e sem se refugiar na rigidez, anda de mãos dadas com a capacidade de aceitar a felicidade e dar amor." - Author: Wilhelm Reich

Quotes About Becoming A Manager

"Give serious thought to why your company should care about your strategy. Specifically, find problems that the board wants to be solved. What are senior managers scared of? Part of becoming a credible strategic thinker is learning effective approaches to selling ideas for your situation. Youll know that youre getting better at selling (or pitching) strategy when managers start coming to you when there is strategic thinking to be done." - Author: Max McKeown

Quotes About Learned Helplessness

"J. R. R. Tolkien, the near-universally-hailed father of modern epic fantasy, crafted his magnum opus The Lord of the Rings to explore the forces of creation as he saw them: God and country, race and class, journeying to war and returning home. Ive heard it said that he was trying to create some kind of original British mythology using the structure of other cultures myths, and maybe that was true. I dont know. What I see, when I read his work, is a man trying desperately to dream.Dreaming is impossible without myths. If we dont have enough myths of our own, well latch onto those of others — even if those myths make us believe terrible or false things about ourselves. Tolkien understood this, I think because its human nature. Call it the superego, call it common sense, call it pragmatism, call it learned helplessness, but the mind craves boundaries. Depending on the myths we believe in, those boundaries can be magnificently vast, or crushingly tight." - Author: N.K. Jemisin
