Br Quotes By Madeleine L'Engle

The earth will never be the same again<br>Rock, water, tree, iron, share this greif<br>As distant stars participate in the pain.<br>A candle snuffed, a falling star or leaf,<br>A dolphin death, O this particular loss<br>A Heaven-mourned; for if no angel cried<br>If this small one was tossed away as dross,<br>The very galaxies would have lied.<br>How shall we sing our love's song now<br>In this strange land where all are born to die?<br>Each tree and leaf and star show how<br>The universe is part of this one cry,<br>Every life is noted and is cherished,<br>and nothing loved is ever lost or perished. — Madeleine L'Engle

Br Quotes By Christina Lauren

I love you," I said, gripping the back of her neck and bringing her mouth to mine. My hand trailed down her side, naked and smooth and covered in goose bumps.<br>"We're really doing this, aren't we?" she asked, pulling back just enough to meet my eyes.<br>"We're really doing this."<br>"Officially." <br>"A hundred percent. Dinners, dates, introducing you as my girlfriend. The whole thing."<br>"Think I like the sound of that," she said, her cheeks pink. — Christina Lauren

Great minds have sought you--lacking someone else.<br />You have been second always. Tragical?<br />No. You preferred it to the usual thing — Ezra Pound

Br Quotes By Holly Black

I'm not good at having friends. I mean, I can make myself useful to people. I can fit in. I get invited to parties and I can sit at any table I want in the cafeteria.<br>But actually trusting someone when they have nothing to gain from me just doesn't make sense.<br>All friendships are negotiations of power. — Holly Black

Br Quotes By Rudyard Kipling

There was a young man of Quebec<br>Who was frozen in snow to his neck,<br>When asked, 'Are you Friz?'<br>He replied, 'Yes I is,<br>But we don't call this cold in Quebec.' — Rudyard Kipling

Br Quotes By Molly Crabapple

Radicals often suspect beauty of corruption. Uptight fuckers though they sometimes are, they're right in one thing: art alone cannot change the world. Pens can't take on swords, let alone Predator drones. But as disappointment and violence spread, the antidote is a generosity that the best art can still inspire.<br /><br />Art is hope against cynicism, creation against entropy. To make art is an act of both love and defiance. Though I'm a cynic, I believe these things are all we have. — Molly Crabapple

Br Quotes By Charlaine Harris

Fiji, I'm betting you don't drink a lot," he said, trying to suppress a smile. <br>"I don't," she confessed. "How did you know?" <br>"Just a lucky guess." <br>"You think he'd like my phone number?" <br>"Feej, that guy is tough as nails, and he's not only been around the block, he's run a marathon. He could eat you for breakfast," Olivia said, half smiling. <br>"And wouldn't that be a great way to wake up?" Fiji said, with a broad wink. Manfred laughed; he couldn't help it. — Charlaine Harris

Br Quotes By John Blumenthal

One aspect of Samantha's personality that drove me nuts was her tendency to reveal herself via literary allusions. She called it a quirk, but it was more of a compulsion. Her mother was Lady Macbeth; her father, Big Daddy. An uncle she liked was Mr. Micawber, a favorite governess, Jane Eyre; a doting professor, Mr. Chips. <br /> This curious habit of hers quickly made the voyage from eccentric to bizarre when she began to invoke the names of literary characters to describe moments in our relationship. When she thought I was treating her rudely, she called me Wolf Larsen; if I was standoffish, I was Mr. Darcy; when I dressed too shabbily, I was Tom Joad.<br /> Once, in bed, she yelled out the name Victor as she approached orgasm. I assumed she was referring to Victor Hugo because she'd been reading 'Les Miserables.'. It didn't really bother me that much though it was a little odd being with a woman who thought she was having sex with a dead French author. — John Blumenthal

Br Quotes By Louise Erdrich

Love won't be tampered with, love won't go away. Push it to one side and it creeps to the other.<br> — Louise Erdrich

Br Quotes By Susan Ee

One second, we are surrounded by angels holding their swords. The next second, one of their arms drops and his sword thunks to the grass like a lead weight. The angel stares at his blade uncomprehendingly.<br>Another sword drops.<br>Then another.<br>Then a whole bunch, until all the other unsheathed swords fall, thudding on the grass like subjects bowing down to their queen.<br>The angels stare at the swords at their feet in utter shock.<br>Then everyone looks at me. Actually, it's probably more accurate to say they're looking at my sword.<br>"Whoa." That's about the most intelligent thing I can say right now. Did Raffe say something about an archangel sword intimidating other angel swords if she could gain their respect?<br>I swivel my eyes to look at the blade in my hands. Was that you, Pooky Bear? — Susan Ee

Br Quotes By Andy Carrington

IT'S NOT RACIST<br />TO BE PROUD<br />OF YOUR COUNTRY!'<br /><br />no, but it is fucking<br />stupid<br />to think it makes<br />you a better man. — Andy Carrington

Br Quotes By Karen Marie Moning

Why do you hate me?"<br>"I have no emotion about you at all, Mac. I take care of my own. You are not my own." He moved past me, pressed his palm to the door, and stood waiting for me to exit. "Barrons wants you to see your parents so as you go about your business you will remember they are here. With me."<br>"Lovely," I muttered.<br>"I suffer them to live, against my better judgment, as a favor to Barrons. He's running out of favors. Remember that. — Karen Marie Moning

Br Quotes By Darshana Suresh

The sky this evening bloomed<br />like a broken purple flower,<br />like a ripped-in-half and<br />colour-bleeding-everywhere<br />flower, like a lavender only<br />just discovering what it means<br />to be a lavender.<br /><br />Like a lavender only just discovering<br />how to fit into itself. Only just<br />discovering what it means<br />to be alive.<br /><br />We are like this, too. — Darshana Suresh

Br Quotes By Brad Warner

Consider this:<br>1. Would you ride in a car whose driver was on the consciousness-expanding "entheogenic" drug LSD?<br>And here's a bonus question:<br>2. Why does an "expanded consciousness" include the inability to operate a motor vehicle? — Brad Warner

Br Quotes By Gideon Defoe

Don't look so worried. I've sailed the seven seas, and I've never had an unsuccessful adventure yet!"<br>"Really? You've sailed all seven seas?" asked Darwin admiringly.<br>"Every last one!"<br>"What are the seven seas? I've always wondered."<br>"Aaarrr. Well, let's see ... " said the Pirate Captain, scratching his craggy forehead. "There's the North Sea. And that other one, the one near Mozambique. And ... what's that one in Hyde Park?"<br>"The Serpentine?"<br>"That's the one. How many's that then? Three. Um. There's the sea with all the rocks in it ... I think they call it Sea Number Four. Then that would leave ... uh ... Grumpy and Sneezy ... "<br>Darwin was starting to look a little less impressed.<br>"Would you look at that big seagull!" said the Pirate Captain, quickly ducking into a beach hut. — Gideon Defoe

Br Quotes By Tessa Dare

It's all right."<br>"It's not. Nothing's right. I've never done a right thing in my life, it seems."<br>"That makes a pair of us then." Her lips pressed against the spot under his ear. "But I believe we are right together, don't you? People like us ... we have no talent for following rules. We can only follow our hearts. I've wronged people as well, but is it horribly wicked that I can't bring myself to regret it? It brought me to you."<br>He took one of her hands and kissed it. "You're so young, you can't know the meaning of true regret. It's never what you've done, love, it's what you've left undone. — Tessa Dare

Br Quotes By Toni Aleo

Trades are happening, and I have two players that if they don't get their crap together I'm going to castrate them."<br /><br />He took in a sharp breath. "Don't castrate my teammates, sweetheart, it will affect how they play. — Toni Aleo

Br Quotes By Christina Rossetti

I wish I could remember the first day,<br>First hour, first moment of your meeting me;<br>If bright or dim the season it might be;<br>Summer or winter for aught I can say.<br>So, unrecorded did it slip away,<br>So blind was i to see and to forsee,<br>So dull to mark the budding of my tree<br>That would not blossom, yet, for many a May. — Christina Rossetti

Br Quotes By Vera Nazarian

Once upon a time, the Reindeer took a running leap and jumped over the Northern Lights.<br>But he jumped too low, and the long fur of his beautiful flowing tail got singed by the rainbow fires of the aurora.<br>To this day the reindeer has no tail to speak of. But he is too busy pulling the Important Sleigh to notice what is lost. And he certainly doesn't complain.<br>What's your excuse? — Vera Nazarian

Br Quotes By Tite Kubo

They say even death can't cure an idiot.<br />-Ririn — Tite Kubo

Br Quotes By Umberto Eco

And don't succumb too much to the spell of these cases. I have seen many other fragments of the cross, in other churches. If all were genuine, our Lord's torment could not have been on a couple of planks nailed together, but on an entire forest.'<br>'Master!' I said, shocked.<br>'So it is, Adso. And there are ever richer treasuries. Some time ago, in the cathedral of Cologne, I saw the skull of John the Baptist at the age of twelve.'<br>'Really?' I exclaimed, amazed. Then, siezed by doubt, I added, 'But the Baptist was executed at a more advanced age!'<br>'The other skull must be in another treasury,' William said, with a grave face. I never understood when he was jesting. — Umberto Eco

Br Quotes By Tom Lehrer

Counting in octal is just likst counting in decimal<br>if you don't use your thumbs. — Tom Lehrer

Br Quotes By Abraham Lincoln

You can complain because a rose has thorns, or you can rejoice<br /> Because the thorns have a rose. — Abraham Lincoln

Br Quotes By Alan W. Watts

The result of feeling that we are separate minds in an alien,<br>and mostly stupid, universe is that we have no common sense, no way of making sense of the world upon which we are agreed in common. It's just my opinion against yours, and therefore the most aggressive and violent (and thus insensitive) propagandist makes the decisions. A muddle of conflicting opinions united by force of propaganda — Alan W. Watts

Br Quotes By Richard House

So why are you here?" Watts asked Santo.<br />"Because, Paul, is it Paul? I'm here to put the f in freedom. — Richard House

Br Quotes By Kelley Armstrong

On that walk around the building, two sets of cops coming out stopped to tell our guys to hustle us inside so they could head back out on the road. Accidents everywhere. A pileup on<br>each of two major roads. "Welcome to winter," one said. "When fifty percent of drivers should have their licenses temporarily suspended. — Kelley Armstrong

Br Quotes By Karen Healey

No one can take your soul from you. You have to give it away.<br />Here's my soul. I'm giving it to you.<br />I hope you're listening. — Karen Healey

Br Quotes By Patricia MacLachlan

Sometimes, what people choose to write down on paper is more important than what they say.<br>Caleb didn't know what Sarah meant. But I knew. I wrote in my journal every night. And when I read what I had written, I could see myself there, clearer than when I looked in the mirror. I could see all of us: Papa, who couldn't always say the things he felt; Caleb, who said everything; and Sarah, who didn't know that she had changed us all. — Patricia MacLachlan

Br Quotes By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

In the elder days of Art,<br>Builders wrought with greatest care<br>Each minute and unseen part;<br>For the Gods are everywhere — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Br Quotes By Anne Sexton

From "Her Kind"<br>I have found the warm caves in the woods, <br>filled them with skillets, carvings, shelves, <br>closets, silks, innumerable goods; <br>fixed the suppers for the worms and the elves: <br>whining, rearranging the disaligned.<br>A woman like that is misunderstood.<br>I have been her kind. — Anne Sexton

Br Quotes By Melanie Dickerson

Except I was hoping someday to see you standing on a ship's deck in your shirtsleeves with a cutlass between your teeth."<br /><br />"Maybe it can be arranged — Melanie Dickerson

Br Quotes By Mike Dooley

Very often, when tides start turning, great gears start shifting, and gusting winds start blowing at the onset of a really wonderful dream's alignment with your present life, there is commotion, unpredictability, even turmoil. <br>So, hey, let's always assume that's the case whenever you experience commotion, unpredictability, even turmoil. K?<br>Let not your senses deceive, for even as the tempest may howl, just beyond it lies a serenity that could not otherwise find you. The storm before the calm, if you will. — Mike Dooley

Br Quotes By Malala Yousafzai

His sisters <br> my aunts <br> did not go to school at all, just like millions of girls in my country. Education had been a great gift for him. He believed that lack of education was the root of all of Pakistan's problems. Ignorance allowed politicians to fool people and bad administrators to be re-elected. He believed schooling should be available for all, rich and poor, boys and girls. The school that my father dreamed of would have desks and a library, computers, bright posters on the walls and, most important, washrooms. — Malala Yousafzai

Br Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Someone with a low degree of epistemic arrogance is not too visible, like a shy person at a cocktail party. We are not predisposed to respect humble people, those who try to suspend judgement. Now contemplate epistemic humility. Think of someone heavily introspective, tortured by the awareness of his own ignorance. He lacks the courage of the idiot, yet has the rare guts to say "I don't know." He does not mind looking like a fool or, worse, an ignoramus. He hesitates, he will not commit, and he agonizes over the consequences of being wrong. He introspects, introspects, and introspects until he reaches physical and nervous exhaustion.<br>This does not necessarily mean he lacks confidence, only that he holds his own knowledge to be suspect. I will call such a person an epistemocrat; the province where the laws are structured with this kind of human fallibility in mind I will can an epistemocracy. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Br Quotes By Alyxandra Harvey

My brothers are idiots.<br>Anyone can see that under the scars and the attitude, Isabeau is more fragile than she looks. And as a reclusive Hound princess, her first introduction to the royal family shouldn't be a dose of Hypnos and four idiots gawking at her.<br>If I'd managed not to gawk, they sure as hell could have. She was beautiful, fierce, and utterly unlike anyone I'd ever known.<br>It was really hard not to gawk.<br>Much better to pace outside her door with one of our Bouviers sitting at the top of the stairs watching me curiously.<br>"This sucks, Boudicca," I told her. "I don't think we inherited Dad's diplomacy."<br>She laid her chin on her paws. I could have sworn she rolled her eyes. — Alyxandra Harvey

Br Quotes By Rosalie Lario

To see the passion on your face as you come apart beneath my hands...there's no comparison."<br /><br />~Michael — Rosalie Lario

Br Quotes By Fall Out Boy

You can only blame your problems on the world for so long<br>Before it all becomes the same old song — Fall Out Boy

Br Quotes By Cassandra Clare

Isabelle!" he called again. "Let down your raven hair!'<br>"Oh my God," Clary muttered. "There was something in that blood Raphael gave you, wasn't there? I'm going to kill him. — Cassandra Clare

Br Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

Humankind's limited scope<br>of mercy was reserved for their own. — Stephenie Meyer

Br Quotes By G.M. Jackson

The claim of fine tuning is subjective. As I stated before, no measurement in physics is perfect. The amount of precision we demand can be increased or decreased at our whim. We could have an approximate measurement that has a huge margin of error and call it finely-tuned if we so desire. Theists, in particular, have a lot of such desire. They so badly want God to be an indispensable part of our universe's creation, so they see finely-tuned constants.<br>They also tend to sweep under the rug the following fact: the vast majority of our universe is hostile to life, and they fail to consider that another hand in the proverbial deck might yield a better universe than ours, one teaming with life on every planet throughout the cosmos. — G.M. Jackson

Br Quotes By Jasleen Kaur Gumber

So it became,<br />the law of universe,<br />to have the,<br />profoundest,<br />of the words,<br />cloaked in the,<br />darkest of the masks. — Jasleen Kaur Gumber

Br Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

Moved on ... " he said. "Rusted nuts! You can do that?"<br>"Certainly."<br>"Huh. You think ... I should ... you know ... Ranette ... "<br>"Wayne, if ever someone should have taken a hint, it was you. Yes. Move on. Really."<br>"Oh, I took the hint," he said, taking a swig of sherry. "Just can't remember which jacket I left it in." He looked down at the jug. "You sure?"<br>"She has a girlfriend, Wayne."<br>"'S only a phase," he mumbled. "One what lasted fifteen years. ... — Brandon Sanderson

Br Quotes By Nick Harkaway

Joe Spork opens the door. The man departs. Joe turns to Polly to say something about how they're obviously not going to Portsmouth, and finds an oyster knife balanced on his cheek, just under his eye.<br /><br />"Can we be very clear," Polly Cradle murmurs, "that I am not your booby sidekick or your Bond girl? That I am an independent supervillain in my own right?"<br /><br />Joe swallows. "Yes, we can," he says carefully.<br /><br />"There will therefore be no more 'Say hello, Polly'?"<br /><br />"There will not. — Nick Harkaway

Br Quotes By Chris Crutcher

Lion emits a low whistle as he spots Bo entering his fifth-period Journalism class. 'What happened to your face?'<br>Bo touches it tenderly and smiles. 'Nothing ... <br>'This wasn't your Dad.'<br>Bo smiles again. 'No. My dad leaves bruises on the inside. — Chris Crutcher

Br Quotes By Ottessa Moshfegh

The Weirdos<br /><br />On our first date, he bought me a taco, talked at length about the ancients' theories of light, how it streams at all angles to align events in space and time, that it is the source of all information, determines every outcome, how we can reflect it to summon aliens using mirrored bowls of water. — Ottessa Moshfegh

Br Quotes By Jill Shalvis

We could sit around and talk if you'd like."<br>"Okay." She crossed her arms and tried to look casual. "So what's up?"<br> "Considering what you're wearing beneath that sheet, and what we just heard in the hallway, you might want to rephrase that particular statement. — Jill Shalvis

Br Quotes By David Levithan

I worry<br>about you<br>and i tell him<br>don't<br>and he says<br>that's exactly<br>why — David Levithan

Br Quotes By T.J. Klune

Wait until you meet the therapist. <br>That bad?<br>Let's just say i can't believe he's a real person.<br>Like Santa Claus?<br>More like if Santa Claus and Ron Jeremy had a child and then that child had a child with Richard Simmons.<br>So, like a leprechaun?<br>Yes, Otter, exactly like a leprechaun.<br>I'm going to tell him I believe in Santa Claus, just to see what happens.<br>I dare you. — T.J. Klune

Br Quotes By Sophie Jordan

You're scared," he said quietly.<br>"Scared?" I scoffed. "Of what?"<br>"Of anything real. And what we have is real. You love me and it terrifies you."<br>"I don't love you," I lied.<br>He grabbed my face then, dragging me closer with both hands. "You love me. I know you do. I know it because I can see it in your eyes ... in the way you look at me." He inhaled. "It's the same way I look at you. — Sophie Jordan

Br Quotes By Scott Lynch

[T]he more we do this, the more I learn about what I think Chains was really training us for. And this is it. He wasn't training us for a calm and orderly world where we could pick and choose when we need to be clever. He was training us for a situation that was fucked up on all sides. Well, we're in it, and I say we're equal to it. I don't need to be reminded that we're up to our heads in dark water. I just want you boys to remember that we're the gods-damned sharks."<br>"Right on," cried Bug. "I knew there was a reason I let you lead this gang! — Scott Lynch

Br Quotes By George Orwell

It was only a hopeless fantasy,<br>it passed like an april day,<br>but a look and a word and the dreams they stirred<br>they have stolen my heart away. — George Orwell

Br Quotes By Lindsey Leavitt

They just change. Their body changes. Their abilities - the things they do that make them who they are - leave, sometimes temporarily, sometimes forever. Every day they wake up with that big what if?<br>And nothing is scarier than a life filled with what ifs - living by day without predictability and control. Some people end up losing feeling. Some have uncontrollable spasms. Some can't function. Some end up blind or in a wheelchair. Some end up bedridden and paralyzed.<br>It's hard to know who "some people" will be. — Lindsey Leavitt

Br Quotes By Si Robertson

Si, the speed limit sign said 35. Your Goin' 55." -Sadie Robertson<br>"Oh, that's just a suggestion. — Si Robertson

Br Quotes By Lucretius

How wretched are the minds of men, and how blind their understandings.<br>[Lat., O miseras hominum menteis! oh, pectora caeca!] — Lucretius

Br Quotes By Tracy McMillan

The good news is that I believe every woman who wants to can find a great partner. You're just going to need to get rid of the idea that marriage will make you happy. It won't. Once the initial high wears off, you'll just be you, except with twice as much laundry. <br>Because ultimately, marriage is not about getting something <br> it's about giving it. Strangely, men understand this more than we do. Probably because for them marriage involves sacrificing their most treasured possession <br> a free-agent penis <br> and for us, it's the culmination of a princess fantasy so universal, it built Disneyland. — Tracy McMillan

Br Quotes By Lewis Carroll

A loaf of bread, the Walrus said, Is what we chiefly need: Pepper and vinegar besides Are very good indeed<br> Now if you're ready, Oysters, dear, We can begin to feed! — Lewis Carroll

Br Quotes By Laozi

Knowing constancy, the mind is open.<br>With an open mind, you will be openhearted.<br>Being openhearted you will act royally.<br>Being royal, you will attain the divine.<br>Being divine, you will be at one with the Tao.<br>Being at one with the Tao is eternal. <br>Though the body dies, the Tao will never pass away. — Laozi

Br Quotes By Bernard Capes

Bully the jade, and she will love you.<br>("The Accursed Cordonnier") — Bernard Capes

Br Quotes By Avijeet Das

I don't settle down. I don't follow any path.<br />Because I am the wanderer and wandering is my destiny! — Avijeet Das

Br Quotes By N.K. Jemisin

J. R. R. Tolkien, the near-universally-hailed father of modern epic fantasy, crafted his magnum opus The Lord of the Rings to explore the forces of creation as he saw them: God and country, race and class, journeying to war and returning home. I've heard it said that he was trying to create some kind of original British mythology using the structure of other cultures' myths, and maybe that was true. I don't know. What I see, when I read his work, is a man trying desperately to dream.<br>Dreaming is impossible without myths. If we don't have enough myths of our own, we'll latch onto those of others - even if those myths make us believe terrible or false things about ourselves. Tolkien understood this, I think because it's human nature. Call it the superego, call it common sense, call it pragmatism, call it learned helplessness, but the mind craves boundaries. Depending on the myths we believe in, those boundaries can be magnificently vast, or crushingly tight. — N.K. Jemisin

Br Quotes By Henry Ford

The idea of gas engines was by no means new, but this was the first time that a really serious effort had been made to put them on the market. They were received with interest rather than enthusiasm and I do not recall any one who thought that the internal combustion engine could ever have more than a limited use. All the wise people demonstrated conclusively that the engine could not compete with steam. They never thought that it might carve out a career for itself. That is the way with wise people<br>they are so wise and practical that they always know to a dot just why something cannot be done; they always know the limitations. That is why I never employ an expert in full bloom. If ever I wanted to kill opposition by unfair means I would endow the opposition with experts. They would have so much good advice that I could be sure they would do little work. — Henry Ford

Br Quotes By Swami Muktananda

You are purer than the pure. Never manifold, you are individual Consciousness.<br>Unborn, unchanging, all-pervasive You are a mountain of joy. — Swami Muktananda

Br Quotes By Lexi Ryan

With a dreamy sigh, I prop my chin on my fists. "Who knew that one day I'd be on a date with the lead singer from a famous boy band?"<br>He scowls. "Infinite Gray was not a boy band."<br>"Were there any girls in the band?"<br>"No."<br>"That makes you a boy band."<br>"It made us an all-male rock group."<br>I bite back my smile. He's so cute when he's irritated. "Right, like 'N Sync."<br>He winces. "Not like 'N Sync. Jesus, watch where you hurl those things. Words hurt, Maggie. — Lexi Ryan

Br Quotes By Jen Lancaster

I don't care how happily married you are or how deeply enmeshed you are with your children and family and career <br> every woman needs a couple of chicks who'll break out the sangria just because you need to vent. — Jen Lancaster

Br Quotes By Debbie Mason

She heard a low laugh and glanced over her shoulder, meeting Gage's amused glaze. 'You're trouble', he mouthed.<br />'No,' Madison thought when she went all warm and gooey inside, 'I'm in trouble. — Debbie Mason

Br Quotes By Jiddu Krishnamurti

Desire is the outcome of sensation - the outcome with all the images that thought has built. And this desire not only breeds discontent but a sense of hopelessness. <br />Never suppress it, never discipline it but probe into the nature of it - what is the origin, the purpose, the intricacies of it? To delve deep into it is not another desire, for it has no motive; it is like understanding the beauty of a flower, to sit down beside it and look at it. — Jiddu Krishnamurti

Br Quotes By E. O. Wilson

The most dangerous of devotions, in my opinion, is the one endemic to Christianity: I was not born to be of this world. With a second life waiting, suffering can be endured<br>especially in other people. The natural environment can be used up. Enemies of the faith can be savaged and suicidal martyrdom praised. — E. O. Wilson

Br Quotes By Arthur Conan Doyle

I followed you.'<br>I saw no one.'<br>That is what you may expect to see when I follow you. — Arthur Conan Doyle

Br Quotes By Robert Jensen

People routinely assume that pornography is such a difficult and divisive issue because it's about sex. In fact, this culture struggles unsuccessfully with pornography because it is about men's cruelty to women, and the pleasure men sometimes take in that cruelty. And that is much more difficult for people<br> men and women<br> to face. — Robert Jensen

Br Quotes By Raymond I. Myers

If you seek creative ideas go walking.<br>Angels whisper to a man when he goes for<br>a walk. — Raymond I. Myers

Br Quotes By Rafe Esquith

That's the beauty of art<br>we strive for perfection but never achieve it. The journey is everything. — Rafe Esquith

Br Quotes By David Foster Wallace

Let me put it this way: You cannot live in the world without being in pain, spiritual and physical pain. We have developed mechanisms to deal with these pains, to overcome them somehow. Therapy, religion and spirituality, relationships, material success. All this can work, but also become a problem itself. <br>The pursuit of happiness has even been put into the American constitution a couple centuries ago. Today we're so rich, we own much more than we need, we have liberties unknown before, even though they are endangered in the current political climate in the US - and we forget how wonderful it nevertheless is, compared to most other political and economic systems. We have a saying that goes: Give a man enough rope and he hangs himself. — David Foster Wallace

Br Quotes By Allison Winn Scotch

The sun will sink lower soon enough, turning the fields into open black space, ushering another day out, another day in<br>one after the next. — Allison Winn Scotch

Br Quotes By Brent Crawford

EJ cries, "We've been best friends since kindergarten. You can't become a babe slayer and leave me in the dust! I don't have an older sister. I'm disadvantaged. All I got is Emmy, who can only drop preschool wisdom like, 'No pull Barbie's hair!'" <br>"That's probably some early girl wisdom. Nobody likes to get their hair pulled," I say. "Except this one chick in my porno; I think she's into it. I cant really tell, though. I wish they would slow down. — Brent Crawford

Br Quotes By Martha Cooley

Books never cease to astonish me. When I was a child, I knew<br>in the incontestable way that children know things<br>that God was an author who'd imagined me, which is why I (and everyone else) existed: to populate His narrative. My task was to imagine God in return: this was all He and I owed each other. — Martha Cooley

Br Quotes By Jaye Wells

What?" my partner asked suddenly.<br>I jumped, guilty at having been caught staring. But, hell, I thought, might as well ask. "Are you two<br>you know?" I made a vaguely obscene gesture with my fingers.<br>He stopped walking so fast I was shocked he didn't get whiplash. "What?"<br>I waved toward the building. "You and Shandi."<br>Instead of answering, he threw his head back and brayed like the jackass he was. — Jaye Wells

Br Quotes By Yehuda Amichai

Like a butcher sharpening knife on knife <br>I sharpen heart on heart inside me. — Yehuda Amichai

Br Quotes By Miranda Lambert

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it <br />this brokenness inside me might start healing. <br />Out here its like I'm someone else, <br />I thought that maybe I could find myself <br />if I could just come in I swear I'll leave. <br />Won't take nothing but a memory <br />from the house that built me. — Miranda Lambert

Br Quotes By Richelle Mead

Whoa." Adrian leapt up and rushed to Jill's side. "You need to let this go. What, are you going to start a fight with some girl?" <br>Reed turned his glare on Adrian. "Stay out of this." <br>"The hell I will! You're crazy." <br>If anyone had asked me to make up a list of people most likely to risk a fight in defense of a lady's honor, Adrian Ivashkov would have been low on that list. Yet there he stood, face hard and hand sitting protectively on Jill's shoulder. I was in awe. And impressed. — Richelle Mead

Br Quotes By Beryl Markham

The Old Days, the Lost Days <br> in the half-closed eyes of memory (and in fact) they never marched across a calendar; they huddled round a burning log, leaned on a certain table, or listened to those certain songs. — Beryl Markham

Br Quotes By Edna St. Vincent Millay

Well, I have lost you; and I lost you fairly;<br>In my own way, and with my full consent.<br>Say what you will, kings in a tumbrel rarely<br>Went to their deaths more proud than this one went.<br>Some nights of apprehension and hot weeping<br>I will confess; but that's permitted me;<br>Day dried my eyes; I was not one for keeping<br>Rubbed in a cage a wing that would be free.<br>If I had loved you less or played you slyly<br>I might have held you for a summer more,<br>But at the cost of words I value highly,<br>And no such summer as the one before.<br>Should I outlive this anguish, and men do,<br>I shall have only good to say of you. — Edna St. Vincent Millay

Br Quotes By Marissa Meyer

What," Scarlet breathed, clutching the bouquet, "is this?"<br>Wolf smiled around his canine teeth. "You are the most beautiful sight I have ever laid eyes on."<br>Scarlet cocked her head. "And you look like you're about to get married." There was blatant amusement in her tone. — Marissa Meyer

Br Quotes By Ali Smith

Daniel is asleep. A care assistant, a different one today is swishingaroundthe room with a mop that smells of pine cleaner.<br /><br />Elisabeth wonders what's doing to happen to all the care assistants. She realizes she hasn't so far encountered a single care assistant here who isn't from somewhere else in the world. That morning on the radio she;d heard a spokesperson say, but it's not just that we;ve been rhetorically and practically encouraging the opposite of integration for immigrants to this country. It's that we've been rhetorically and practically encouraging ourselves not to integrate. We've been doing this as a matter of self-policing since Thatcher taught us to be selfish and not just to think but to believe that there's no such thing as society.<br /><br />Then the other spokesperson in the dialogue said, well, you would say that. Get over it. Grow up. Your time's over. Democracy. You lost. — Ali Smith

Br Quotes By T. S. Eliot

I an old man, <br />A dull head among windy spaces. — T. S. Eliot
