Alice Valdal Quotes

"You can stretch to your fullest in this land, Emma, and not touch any edges. Theres no dream too big for the wilderness. Id hate to see it tamed and carved up into little fiefdoms."

Wilson Rawls Quotes

"Id like to take a walk far back in the flinty hills and search for a souvenir, an old double-bitted ax stuck deep in the side of a white oak tree. I know the handle has long since rotted away with time. Perhaps the rusty frame of a coal-oil lantern still hangs there on the blade."

Jerry Kinard Quotes

"Just because I disagree with a person that doesnt make him my enemy."

Eleanor Keane Quotes

"He used to call vampires "the breathing ghosts"- for, as he put it, we existed in a kind of limbo-land between the living and the dead. We breathed, but we were not alive. We flitted through the air, but we still left foot prints on the ground. We were, and are, neither one nor the other, but something else entirely."

Marjorie M Liu Quotes

Helena Petrova Blavatsky Quotes

"To act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the tides. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other."

Zosia Mamet Quotes

"I think feminisms a bit misinterpreted. It was about casting off all gender roles. Theres nothing wrong with a man holding a door open for a girl. But we sort of threw away all the rules, so everybodys confused. And dating becomes a sloppy, uncomfortable, unpleasant thing."

Quotes About Love Wrong Time

"At the happy ending of the Tempest, Prospero brings the kind back togeter with his son, and finds Mirandas true love and punishes the bad duke and frees Ariel and becomes a duke himself again. Everyone - except Caliban - is happy, and everyone is forgiven, and everyone is fine, and they all sail away on calm seas. Happy endings. Thats how it is in Shakespeare. But Shakespeare was wrong. Sometimes there isnt a Prospero to make everything fine again. And sometimes the quality of mercy is strained." - Author: Gary D. Schmidt

Quotes About Radiation Therapy

"Thats a tumor. It goes across my liver, up through my lungs, all the way around my heart.

Quotes About Wool Sweaters

"But unvented - ahh! One un-vents something; one unearths it; one digs it up, one runs it down in whatever recesses of the eternal consciousness it has gone to ground. I very much doubt if anything is really new when one works in the prehistoric medium of wool with needles. The products of science and technology may be new, and some of them are quite horrid, but knitting? In knitting there are ancient possibilities; the earth is enriched with the dust of the millions of knitters who have held wool and needles since the beginning of sheep. Seamless sweaters and one-row buttonholes; knitted hems and phoney seams - it is unthinkable that these have, in mankinds history, remained undiscovered and unknitted. One likes to believe that there is memory in the fingers; memory undeveloped, but still alive." - Author: Elizabeth Zimmermann

Quotes About Amity

"I turn my head a little. The radios caroling "Tonight," velvety smooth and young and filled with plaintive desire. Marias song from West Side Story. I remember one beautiful night long ago at the Winter Garden, with a beautiful someone beside me. I tilt my nose and breathe in, and I can still smell her perfume, the ghost of her perfume from long ago. But where is she now, where did she go, and what did I do with her?Our paths ran along so close together they were almost like one, the one they were eventually going to be. Thin fear came along, fear entered into it somehow, and split them wide apart.Fear bred anxiety to justify. Anxiety to justify bred anger. The phone calls that wouldnt be answered, the door rings that wouldnt be opened. Anger bred sudden calamity.Now there arent two paths anymore; theres only one, only mine. Running downhill into the ground, running downhill into its doom.("New York Blues")" - Author: Cornell Woolrich

Quotes About Being Reunited In Heaven

"Whispers of a forgotten shoreWhen I die, throw my ashes to the wind…Let it carry me along as my heart will lead my soul,to the places that took my breath away.Let it blow me about to return to those places..That I swore were so magical I would return,But have not,Let those forgotten shores, forgotten places,Be reunited with my eyes,The splendour and the overwhelming feeling of sheer happiness,Etch into my soul as I pass through one heaven into the nextWhere I shall live for eternityKnowing I made a promise and kept it,I forgot nothing,I left nothing behind,My loved ones will greet me or follow me,My broken promises were fixed,And the screams in my ears of a conscience I couldnt escape,Faded to whispers,Till one day I shall return to Earth in a new vessel,Reborn to live and suffer and wish this wish of mine all over again,Knowing the fulfillment of being forever free…." - Author: Michelle Geaney
