Quotes About Smashing

"I sunk down onto the bench in the middle of the car. So Alex had loved me the whole time, from the moment wed seen each other again? All that time Id been freaking out about Rachel?

Wed wasted all that time when we could have been kissing? And hed had to wait until two seconds before leaving me until he told me? If the Unit didnt kill him, I was going to." - Author: Sarah Alderson

"The Wickans know that the gift of power is never free. They know enough not to envy the chosen among them, for power is never a game, nor are glittering standards raised to glory and wealth. They disguise nothing in trappings, and so we all see what wed rather not, that power is cruel, hard as iron and bone, and thrives on destruction. ~ Deadhouse Gates" - Author: Steven Erikson

Quotes About Through The Storm

"I pushed her shiny blond hair away from her face and leaned down, our faces only inches apart. She inhaled softly, our lips so close I could feel her breath and the scent of her skin, like honeysuckle in springtime. She smelled like sweet tea and old books, like she had always been here.I pulled my fingers through her hair and held it at the back of her neck. Her skin was soft and warm, like a Mortal girls. There was no electric current, no shocks. We could kiss for as long as we wanted. If we had a fight, there wouldnt be a flood or a hurricane, or even a storm. I wouldnt find her on the ceiling of her bedroom. No windows would shatter. No exams would catch fire.Liv held up her face to be kissed.She wanted me." - Author: Kami Garcia

Quotes About Eyes In Spanish

"That Spanish woman who lived three hundred years ago, was certainly not the last of her kind. Many Theresas have been born who found for themselves no epic life wherein there was a constant unfolding of far-resonant action; perhaps only a life of mistakes, the offspring of a certain spiritual grandeur ill-matched with the meanness of opportunity; perhaps a tragic failure which found no sacred poet and sank unwept into oblivion. With dim lights and tangled circumstance they tried to shape their thought and deed in noble agreement; but after all, to common eyes their struggles seemed mere inconsistency and formlessness; for these later-born Theresas were helped by no coherent social faith and order which could perform the function of knowledge for the ardently willing soul. Their ardor alternated between a vague ideal and the common yearning of womanhood; so that the one was disapproved as extravagance, and the other condemned as a lapse." - Author: George Eliot

Quotes About Together Forever

"I go downstairs and the books blink at me from the shelves. Or stare. In a trick of the light, a row of them seems to shift very slightly, like a curtain blown by the breeze through an open window. Red is next to blue is next to cream is adjacent to beige. But when I look again, cream is next to green is next to black. A tall book shelters a small book, a huge Folio bullies a cowering line of Quartos. A childs nursery rhyme book does not have the language in which to speak to a Latin dictionary. Chaucer does not know the words in which Henry James communicates but here they are forced to live together, forever speechless." - Author: Susan Hill
