Quotes About Trees And Friendship

"Lets think about living some day in a world made of friendship, with hearts beating with duty and feeling, and people and animals and trees and birds and lawns. Well have a morality never written in a book. A morality that looks in surprise at what we do now and what well do in the future, what we think now and what we will think. Then well have a longer friendship, Bug-eyes. Then, dont worry. My friend Panço will agree. He wont talk about church morality. Hell tell his children about the extraordinary beauty of friendship." - Author: Sait Faik Abasıyanık

Quotes About Night Shifts

"I noticed how utterly indifferent the passengers were to what they were doing, namely, flying through the air. A glance out of the window would have revealed furrowed fields of cloud stained smoke-blue and violet as night and morning changed shifts –- but how were they passing time in First, Business and Coach? Crosswords. In-flight movies. Computer games. E-mail. Creation sprawls like a dewed and willing maiden outside your window awaiting only the lechery of your senses –- and what do you do? Complain about the dwarf cutlery. Plug your ears. Blind you eyes. Discuss Julia Robertss hair. Ah, me. Sometimes I think my work is done." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Lost Relatives

"When people are kids their parents teach them all sorts of stuff, some of it true and useful, some of it absurd hogwash (example of former: dont crap your pants; example of latter: Columbus discovered America). This is why puberty happens. The purpose of puberty is to shoot an innocent and gullible child full of nasty glandular secretions that manifest in the mind as confusion, in the innards as horniness, upon the skin as pimples, and on the tongue as cocksure venomous disbelief in every piece of information, true or false, gleaned from ones parents since infancy. The net result is a few years of familial hell culminating in the childs exodus from the parental nest, sooner or later followed by a peace treaty and the emergence of the postpubescent as an autonomous, free-thinking human being who knows that Columbus only trespassed on an island inhabited by our lost and distant Indian relatives, but who also knows not to crap his pants." - Author: David James Duncan
