"In living this way, we discover new opportunities for comfort and enjoyment. Where the younger person may have tossed and turned throughout a sleepless night, the older man or woman can possibly feel the pleasure that comes from lying on a good mattress, resting ones weary bones and overcharged intellect, whether or not one sleeps throughout the hours of darkness."

Diriye Osman Quotes

"The God of Imagination lived in fairytales. And the best fairytales made you fall in love. It was while flicking through "Sleeping Beauty" that I met my first love, Ivar. He was a six-year-old bello ragazzo with blond hair and eyebrows. He had bomb-blue eyes and his two front teeth were missing.The road to Happily Ever After, however, was paved with political barbed wire. Three things stood in my way.1. The object of my affection didnt know he was the object of my affection.2. The object of my affection preferred Action Man to Princess Aurora.3. The object of my affection was a boy and I wasnt allowed to love a boy."

Agnes Elizabeth Nee Ernst Meyer Quotes

"The fatigue of the climb was great but it is interesting to learn once more how much further one can go on ones second wind. I think that is an important lesson for everyone to learn for it should also be applied to ones mental efforts. Most people go through life without ever discovering the existance of that whole field of endeavor which we describe as second wind. Whether mentally or physically occupied most people give up at the first appearance of exhaustion. Thus they never learn the glory and the exhilaration of genuine effort..."

Quotes About Brinca

"A cronologia da infância não segue uma linha reta, mas é feita de sobressaltos. A memória é um espelho opaco e estilhaçado, ou melhor, é feita de conchas intemporais de lembranças espalhadas numa praia de esquecimento. Sei que aconteceram muitas coisas naqueles anos, mas tentar recordá-las é tão desesperador como tentar lembrar um sonho, um sonho que deixou em nós uma sensação, mas nenhuma imagem, uma história sem história, vazia, da qual resta apenas um vago estado de espírito. As imagens se perderam. Os anos, as palavras, as brincadeiras, as carícias se apagaram, e no entanto, de repente, rememorando o passado, alguma coisa volta a se iluminar na sombria região do esquecimento [153]." - Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince

Quotes About Your Childhood Home

"LoveMy soul was a light-blue gown, sky-coloured;I left it on a cliff by the seaand naked I came to you, resembling a woman.And like a woman I sat at your tableand drank a toast with wine and breathed in the scent of several roses.You found me beautiful, resembling something youd seen dreaming,I forgot everything, I forgot my childhood and my homeland,I knew only that your caresses held me captive.And, smiling, you took up a mirror and bade me look.I saw that my shoulders were made of dust and crumbled away,I saw that my beauty was sick and had no desire other than to - disappear.Oh, hold me close in your arms, so tightly that I need nothing." - Author: Edith Södergran

Quotes About Ecstasy Drug

"The diaries of opium-eaters record how, during the brief period of ecstasy, the drugged persons dreams have a temporal scope of ten, thirty, sometimes sixty years or even surpass all limits of mans ability to experience time--dreams, that is, whose imaginary time span vastly exceeds their actual duration and which are characterized by an incredible diminishment of the experience of time, with images thronging past so swiftly that, as one hashish-smoke puts it, the intoxicated users brain seems "to have something removed, like the mainspring from a broken watch." - Author: Thomas Mann

But to get to the heart of the matter youve got to leap in and learn by doing." - Author: Nicholas Boothman
