"A child isnt born bitter. I point no fingers as to who tainted the clean, pure pool of my childhood. Lets just say that when I realized that I didnt want to grow up, the damage was already done. Knowing that being grown up was no swell place to be means that you are grown up enough to notice. And you cant go back from there. You have to forge another route, draw your own map."

Bri Justine Quotes

"I do not possess the ability to draw or paint.I cant sing or dance.I cant knit or sew. But I am an artist. I have the ability to put onto paper, words that tell an intriguing story. I am a writer. A writer is someone who, with just words, can paint a beautiful picture. A writer can open up a world of imagination you didnt realize was possible. When you open up a book and become so consumed in the story, you feel like youre a part of it… youre standing next to that character and feeling the same way that character feels, Thats the art of a writer. I am an artist. My inspiration is the world around me.My paintbrush is my words.My easel is my computer.My canvas is the mind of my reader."

Thomas Metzinger Quotes

"The illusion is irresistible. Behind every face there is a self. We see the signal of consciousness in a gleaming eye and imagine some ethereal space beneath the vault of the skull, lit by shifting patterns of feeling and thought, charged with intention. An essence. But what do we find in that space behind the face, when we look? The brute fact is there is nothing but material substance: flesh and blood and bone and brain…You look down into an open head, watching the brain pulsate, watching the surgeon tug and probe, and you understand with absolute conviction that there is nothing more to it. Theres no one there."

Isabel Abedi Quotes

"No tiene ningún sentido hacerse ahora esas preguntas, lo sé. Pero las preguntas no lo saben. Ellas llegan sin avisar, sin informarse antes de si lo hacen en el momento adecuado. Quieren que uno se ocupe de ellas, sea cual sea el momento en que se presentan. Yo ya me he acostumbrado a tratarlas bien. Les contesto que no sé. A veces les digo también que creo que no, que no habría cambiado nada. Tal vez lo hubiera hecho otro, y a lo mejor –o incluso probablemente –habría salido todo pero si yo hubiera salido corriendo. Eso siempre las tranquiliza un poco."

Fulton J Sheen Quotes

"Why are those who are notoriously undisciplined and unmoral also most contemptuous of religion and morality? They are trying to solace their own unhappy lives by pulling the happy down to their own abysmal depths."

Quotes About Friend Hoppers

"Some of the most memorable, and least regrettable, nights of my own youth were spent in coon hunting with farmers. There is no denying that these activities contributed to the economy of farm households, but a further fact is that they were pleasures; they were wilderness pleasures, not greatly different from the pleasures pursued by conservationists and wilderness lovers. As I was always aware, my friends the coon hunters were not motivated just by the wish to tree coons and listen to hounds and listen to each other, all of which were sufficiently attractive; they were coon hunters also because they wanted to be afoot in the woods at night. Most of the farmers I have known, and certainly the most interesting ones, have had the capacity to ramble about outdoors for the mere happiness of it, alert to the doings of the creatures, amused by the sight of a fox catching grasshoppers, or by the puzzle of wild tracks in the snow." - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Emerging From Darkness

"One night they walked while the moon rose and poured a great burden of glory over the garden until it seemed fairyland with Amory and Eleanor, dim phantasmal shapes, expressing eternal beauty and curious elfin love moods. Then they turned out of the moonlight into the trellised darkness of a vine-hung pagoda, where there were scents so plaintive as to be nearly musical." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Aegean Sea

"During the persecutions under the Emperor Domitian, John was summoned to Rome, where he was tortured by immersion in a pot of boiling oil and subsequently banished to the island of Patmos in the Aegean sea. It was there he wrote his Apocalypse. It was only after the death of Domitian, in A.D. 96, that he returned to Ephesus, where he was still living during the reign of the Emperor Trajan (A.D. 98-117). He became so old and frail that he could no longer walk and had to be carried to meetings and services. All he could manage to say was, "My little children, love one another." He repeated this over and over." - Author: Gilles Quispel

Quotes About Unperfect Love

"As an unperfect actor upon the stageWho with much fear is put besides his partOr some fierce thing, replete with too much rageWhose strengths abundance weakens his own heartSo I, for fear of trust, forget to sayThe perfect ceremony of loves riteAnd in mine own loves strength seem to decayOercharged with burthen of my own loves mighto, let my books be then the eloquenceAnd dumb presagers of my speaking breastWho plead for love, and look for recompenseMore than that tongue that more hath expressd.O, learn to read what silent love hath writTo hear with eyes belongs to loves fine wit." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About The Future Of Our World

"I know the world seems terrifying right now and the future seems bleak. Just remember human beings have always managed to find the greatest strength within themselves during the darkest hours. When faced with the worst horrors the world has to offer, a person either cracks and succumbs to ugliness, or they salvage the inner core of who they are and fight to right wrongs. Never Let hatred, fear, and ignorance get the best of you. Keep bettering yourself so you can make the world around you better, for nothing can improve without the brightest, bravest, kindest, and most imaginative individuals rising above the chaos." - Author: Cat Winters
