Quotes About Racing Thoughts

"Every single iceberg filled me with feelings of sadness and wonder. Not thoughts of sadness and wonder, mind you, because thoughts require a thinker, and my head was a balloon, incapable of thoughts. I didnt think about Dad, I didnt think about you, and, the big one, I didnt think about myself. The effect was like heroin (I think), and I wanted to stretch it out as long as possible.Even the simplest human interaction would send me crashing back to earthly thoughts. So I was the first one out in the morning, and the last one back. I only went kayaking, never stepped foot on the White Continent proper. I kept my head down, stayed in my room, and slept, but, mainly, I was. No racing heart, no flying thoughts." - Author: Maria Semple

Quotes About Tirar

"Tú me echabas una mirada con un gris signo de interrogación en tus ojos. "Oh, no, no empecemos de nuevo" (incredulidad, exasperación). Pues nunca te dignabas a creer que yo pudiera sentir el deseo -sin intenciones específicas- de hundir mi cara en tu falda tableada, amor mío. La fragilidad de tus brazos desnudos... Cómo anhelaba envolver esos brazos, y tus cuatro miembros límpidos, encantadores -un potrillo acurrucado-, y tomar tu cabeza entre mis manos indignas y estirar hacia atrás la piel de tus sienes y besar tus ojos achinados y... "Por favor, déjame en paz, ¿quieres?", decías. "Dios mío, déjame tranquila". Y yo me levantaba del suelo, mientras tú me mirabas crispando el rostro en una imitación deliberada de mi tic nerveux. Pero no importa, no importa, soy un miserable, no importa, sigamos con mi desgraciada historia." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Becoming Who You Want To Be

"I mean, I dont know how the world broke. And I dont know if theres a God who can help us fix it. But the fact that the world is broken - I absolutely believe that. Just look around us. Every minute - every single second - there are a million things you could be thinking about. A million things you could be worrying about. Our world - dont you just feel were becoming more fragmented? I used to think that when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, the more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is. Harder. Youd think wed be getting better at it. But theres just more and more chaos. The pieces - theyre everywhere. And nobody knows what to do about it. I find myself grasping, Nick. You know that feeling? That feeling when you just want the right thing to fall into the right place, not only because its right, but because it would mean that such a thing is still possible? I want to believe that." - Author: Rachel Cohn

"I find you too charming by half.""And I find you too annoying by far. If you do not release me, I cannot be held responsible for your well-being."He chuckled at that. "A fiery little bundle,arent you? Ill wager you like-"She brought her foot down hard on his instep.He yelped and released her, his face contorted in pain.Sophia stepped past him, but he grabbed her arm and yanked her back toward him. "You tease!" he gasped.She used her forward motion to shove him back against the settee.One moment, he was standing before her; the next, he was lying upside down on the rug behind the setee, his legs in the air.Sophia gathered her skirts and ran for the door.
