"The boy took a step toward her. Lex jumped back, her contentious instincts kicking in. "Stop right there," she warned.

"And I feel compelled to warn YOU that the bathroom we now share has a leaky ceiling," he said, pointing up. "Theres an umbrella under the sink, if youre going to be in here for a while."

John Talmage Mathis Quotes

"Is it really necessary to reward the CEO with several million dollars? Why isnt it logical or common sense to pay the minimum-wage employee another quarter, give a quarterly fifty-dollar bonus, or even provide a two-hundred-dollar gas gift card?"

Lewis Spence Quotes

"In my view the study of fairy origins assumes a greater degree of importance than popular opinion is wont to concede to it. Indeed, the ideas associated with it strike at the very roots of human belief and primitive methods of reasoning. It is scarcely to be questioned that the explanation of fairy origins is of the utmost value to the better comprehension of primitive religion. Later it will be made clear that, for the writer at least, the whole tradition of Faerie reveals quite numerous and excellent proofs of its former existence as a primitive and separate cult and faith, more particularly as regards its appearance and tradition in these islands."

Chet Williamson Quotes

In the meantime, look about for clues, only dont disturb anything."[...]I knew only too well who that great man was whom he spoke of. Camber Fosrick. I had committed the quote to memory as well. So Lindavar, one of the War Wizards of Cormyr, was addicted to trashy literature too. I would have chuckled had I not been so scared."

Quotes About Terrain

"the past is now barely present in my thoughts. I believe the main reason for that is our children, since life with them in the here and now occupies all the space. They even squeeze out the most recent past: Ask me what I did three days ago and I cant remember. Ask me what Vanja was like two years ago, Heidi two months ago, John two weeks ago, and I cant remember. A lot happens in our little everyday life, but it always happens within the same routine, and more than anything else it has changed my perspective of time. For, while previously I saw time as a stretch of terrain that had to be covered, with the future as a distant prospect, hopefully a bright one, and never boring at any rate, now it is interwoven with our life here and in a totally different way." - Author: Karl Ove Knausgård

Quotes About Creeping

"Autumnal -- nothing to do with leaves. It is to do with a certain brownness at the edges of the day ... Brown is creeping up on us, take my word for it ... Russets and tangerine shades of old gold flushing the very outside edge of the senses... deep shining ochres, burnt umber and parchments of baked earth -- reflecting on itself and through itself, filtering the light. At such times, perhaps, coincidentally, the leaves might fall, somewhere, by repute. Yesterday was blue, like smoke." - Author: Tom Stoppard
