Nam Cao Quotes

"Một người đau chân có lúc nào quên được cái chân đau của mình để nghĩ đến một cái gì khác đâu? Khi người ta khổ quá thì người ta chẳng còn nghĩ gì đến ai được nữa. Cái bản tính tốt của người ta bị những nỗi lo lắng, buồn đau ích kỷ che lấp mất..."

Michelle Shocked Quotes

"I try to look at this music career thing as the means to an end. And really, at the end of it, I see myself on a sailboat, sailing off the edge of the world."

Arthur Henry King Quotes

"literature is a way in which we can learn to live deeper lives -- husband with wife, parent with child, brother with sister, fellow member with fellow member. Most good authors are better than we are. They are much better company than our own friends. What comes from good company? What comes from good company is better manners, greater sensitivity, greater sensibility, greater empathy, great sympathy. Reading good literature makes us more capable of understanding other people, of loving other people, those whom we dont particularly want to love, even our enemies, as well as those closest to us. How can we expect to have full marriages when we are not going into those marriages with full minds and fine sensibilities? We are ignoring the tremendous possibilities of a delicate, well-poised, rich, sensitive life if we ignore the literature of the past. There is no substitute."

Agnes Repplier Quotes

"It is not what we learn in conversation that enriches us. It is the elation that comes of swift contact with tingling currents of thought."

Ann Radcliffe Quotes

"Surely, said she, there is some magic in wealth, which can thus make persons pay their court to it, when it does not even benefit themselves. How strange it is, that a fool or a knave, with riches, should be treated with more respect by the world, than a good man, or a wise man in poverty!"

M Scott Peck Quotes

"Since the primary motive of the evil is disguise, one of the places evil people are most likely to be found is within the church. What better way to conceal ones evil from oneself as well as from others than to be a deacon or some other highly visible form of Christian within our culture"

Katherine Pancol Quotes

"deseo, esa «fuerza Misteriosa que hay detrás de cada cosa». ¡Cómo le gustaban esas palabras de Alfred de Musset! El deseo que hace que toda la superficie de la piel se alumbre y desee la superficie de otra piel de la que no se sabe nada. Antes de conocerse ya son íntimos. Ya no se puede vivir sin la mirada del otro, sin su sonrisa, sin su mano, sin sus labios. Se pierde el rumbo. Se vuelve uno loco. Se le seguiría al fin del mundo, mientras la razón dice: Pero ¿qué sabes tú de él? Nada, nada, ayer mismo no sabíamos ni su nombre. ¡Qué hermoso ardid inventado por la biología para el ser humano, que se creía tan fuerte! ¡Qué triunfo el de la piel sobre el cerebro! El deseo se infiltra en las neuronas y las embota. Nos encadenamos, nos privamos de libertad. En la cama, en todo caso…El último eslabón de vida primitiva"

Quotes About Spiritualitate

"Oricâtă pasiune ar exista între un bărbat şi o femeie, judecata îşi situează la un moment dat partenerul numai pe verticală. Acest moment nu poate fi evitat. Nici pasiunea cea mai mare nu absolvă pe nimeni de această poziţie esenţial umană. Ceea ce îţi rămâne dintr-un om e ceea ce-l abstrage din animalitate: gândirea lui, cuvintele, gesturile. Orizontalitatea erotică este cel mai perisabil element al unei legături. Ai să vezi, într-o zi, că numai spiritualitatea rămâne dintr-o iubire." - Author: Ileana Vulpescu

Quotes About Alberta Oil Sands

"Oil kindles extraordinary emotions and hopes, since oil is above all a great temptation. It is the temptation of ease, wealth, strength, fortune, power.

Quotes About Remaining A Child

"Lay your life down. Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away. You have hands, blister them while you can. You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter. With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the US (subtracting eight hours a day for sleep), I have around 250,00 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles. I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live. And, like Adam, I will still die in the end." - Author: N.D. Wilson

Quotes About Alcohol And Drugs

"The modern food and drug industry has converted a significant portion of the worlds people to a new religion—a massive cult of pleasure seekers who consume coffee, cigarettes, soft drinks, candy, chocolate, alcohol, processed foods, fast foods, and concentrated dairy fat (cheese) in a self-indulgent orgy of destructive behavior. When the inevitable results of such bad habits appear—pain, suffering, sickness, and disease—the addicted cult members drag themselves to physicians and demand drugs to alleviate their pain, mask their symptoms, and cure their diseases. These revelers become so drunk on their addictive behavior and the accompanying addictive thinking that they can no longer tell the difference between health and health care." - Author: Joel Fuhrman
