Prisms Quotes By Mike Jackson

Military operations cannot be tidy or free of friction - particularly in a coalition whose contributing nations see the campaign through national prisms. — Mike Jackson

Prisms Quotes By A.G. Howard

I'm about to berate his tactics, to deny any feelings for him, when he cups the nape of my neck and presses his lips to mine, velvety soft. It's nothing but a peck, yet the flavor of the tart he sampled lingers like a warm, savory bruise - an irresistible torment to the netherling within.
He draws back and my skin glistens, radiant prisms reflected off his face and the cushions. I'm gripping his jacket lapels, yet I don't even remember reaching for him.
"No more denials," he says as he presses his left hand over one of mine. "I've seen the love in your eyes and in your actions. I felt it yesterday when I held you in my arms, and today, when you came to save me." — A.G. Howard

Prisms Quotes By Cathryn Louis

Your actions are viewed by observers through prisms shaped by their own interpretations, and sometimes misinterpretations. All you can do is strive to be your best self. Let the chips fall where they may. — Cathryn Louis

Prisms Quotes By Jennifer Murphy

Prisms Quotes By Siri Mitchell

Why do you always talk like that? With a hand in front of your mouth?" "Because it's too large." And I could not remember to think of peas and prunes and prisms. "Who told you that?" "My aunt." "And what else has she told you?" "That I'm much too tall." "Has she?" "Yes." I said it in a whisper because Harry had come so very close and his lips were hovering just above mine. "I'm afraid that . . . I might just . . . kiss you. If that's all right." "Oh, Harry . . ." What a strange sensation, to feel Harry's lips upon mine. So warm and gentle and giving. Especially when Franklin's had been so hard and urgent and demanding. He broke away with a sigh. Placed a hand to either side of my neck and stared at me for a long moment . . . just stood there looking deeply into my eyes. And then he slid his hands down to my shoulders and clasped me to himself. "It seems just fine to me." The words were whispered into my ear. "What does?" "Your mouth. And you. You're perfect just the way you are. — Siri Mitchell

Prisms Quotes By L.M. Montgomery

And then the petty jealousy of these small prunes-and-prisms places - if you do anything the people you went to school with can't do some of them will never forgive you. — L.M. Montgomery

Prisms Quotes By Robert Barron

The holiness of God is like a white light: pure, simple, complete. But when that light shines, as it were, through the prisms of individual human lives, it breaks into an infinite variety of colors ... each one reveals a unique dimension of the divine holiness. — Robert Barron

Prisms Quotes By Ray Bradbury

There was a crash like the falling parts of a dream fashioned out of warped glass, mirrors, and crystal prisms. — Ray Bradbury

Prisms Quotes By Greg Weisman

The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast adrift, neither teaching nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflected all possible futures. Books are lighthouses erected on the dark sea of time. — Greg Weisman

Prisms Quotes By Denis Johnson

English words are like prisms. Empty, nothing inside, and still they make rainbows. — Denis Johnson

Prisms Quotes By H.G.Wells

The Vicar stood aghast, with his smoking gun in his hand. It was no bird at all, but a youth with an extremely beautiful face, clad in a robe of saffron and with iridescent wings, across whose pinions great waves of colour, flushes of purple and crimson, golden green and intense blue, pursued one another as he writhed in his agony. Never had the Vicar seen such gorgeous floods of colour, not stained glass windows, not the wings of butterflies, not even the glories of crystals seen between prisms, no colours on earth could compare with them. Twice the Angel raised himself, only to fall over sideways again. Then the beating of the wings diminished, the terrified face grew pale, the floods of colour abated, and suddenly with a sob he lay prone, and the changing hues of the broken wings faded swiftly into one uniform dull grey hue. Oh! — H.G.Wells

Prisms Quotes By Amish Tripathi

There are many realities. There are many versions of what may appear
obvious. Whatever appears as the unshakeable truth, its exact opposite
may also be true in another context. After all, one's reality is but
perception, viewed through various prisms of context. — Amish Tripathi

Prisms Quotes By Henry Rollins

I live my life through the prism of capitalism and physiological limits and eventualities. — Henry Rollins

Prisms Quotes By Archibald MacLeish

If you commit yourself to the art of poetry, you commit yourself to the task of learning how to see, using words as elements of sight and their sounds as prisms. And to see means to see something worth all the agony of learning how to see. — Archibald MacLeish

Prisms Quotes By Laura Kreitzer

Death and his scythe do not come. No sweeping black capes or ethereal escapes. There's no pearly gate, no prisms of colors as his soul slips away. The stillness is cold steel. The silence is empty with no memory to mend it. — Laura Kreitzer

Prisms Quotes By Kare Anderson

Remember the many compartments of the heart, the seed of what is possible. So much of who we are is defined by the places we hold for each other. For it is not our ingenuity that sets us apart, but our capacity for love, the possibility our way will be lit by grace. Our hearts prisms, chiseling out the colors of pure light. — Kare Anderson

Prisms Quotes By M. L. Stedman - The Light Between Oceans

The isolation spins its mysterious cocoon, focusing the mind on one place, one time, one rhythm - the turning of the light. The island knows no other human voices, no other footprints. On the Offshore Lights you can live any story you want to tell yourself, and no one will say you're wrong: not the seagulls, not the prisms, not the wind. — M. L. Stedman - The Light Between Oceans

Prisms Quotes By Drew Gilpin Faust

As we have sought through the centuries to define ourselves as human beings and as nations through the prisms of history and literature, no small part of that effort has drawn us to the subject of war. We might even say that the humanities began with war and from war, and have remained entwined with it ever since. — Drew Gilpin Faust

Prisms Quotes By Truman Capote

She took off her dark glasses and squinted at me. It was as though her eyes were shattered prisms, the dots of blue and gray and green like broken bits of sparkle. — Truman Capote

Prisms Quotes By Donna Tartt

Walking into the library, I took in my breath sharply and stopped: glass fronted bookcases and Gothic panels, stretching fifteen feet to a frescoed and plaster-medallioned ceiling. In the back of the room was a marble fireplace, big as a sepulchre, and a globed gasolier
dripping with prisms and strings of crystal beading
sparkled in the dim.
There was a piano, too, and Charles was playing, a glass of whiskey on the seat beside him. He was a little drunk; the Chopin was slurred and fluid, the notes melting sleepily into one another. A breeze stirred the heavy, moth-eaten velvet curtains, ruffling his hair. — Donna Tartt

Prisms Quotes By Marilyn Manson

I am the ism, my hate's a prism. — Marilyn Manson

Prisms Quotes By Rush Limbaugh

I don't think looking at things through the prism of fear is going to accomplish anything. — Rush Limbaugh

Prisms Quotes By Jorge Luis Borges

Two aesthetics exist: the passive aesthetic of mirrors and the active aesthetic of prisms. Guided by the former, art turns into a copy of the environment's objectivity or the individual's psychic history. Guided by the latter, art is redeemed, makes the world into its instrument, and forges, beyond spatial and temporal prisons, a personal vision. — Jorge Luis Borges

Prisms Quotes By A.A. Attanasio

You are consciousness itself
not the objects of consciousness. They used clear-color prisms and waterdrums to help him relax. You have a body, but you are not your body. You are the awareness of your body. You have thoughts, but you are not your thoughts. You have feelings, but you are not they. Who are you? — A.A. Attanasio

Prisms Quotes By Isabella Rossellini

That is the great pleasure of working with great directors. You get to look at the world through many different prisms. I guess I love talent, whatever form it takes. — Isabella Rossellini

Prisms Quotes By Karen Swan

It was dusk and the light had an ultra-violet quality to it, a final burst of pigmentation as night and day rushed at each other in a clash of colour prisms before darkness finnaly, inevitably won out. — Karen Swan

Prisms Quotes By Jim Gaffigan

Well my chocolate is so good I could sell it in an obnoxious prism shape. — Jim Gaffigan

Prisms Quotes By Tana French

Julia doesn't like James Gillen, but that's not the point, not out here. In the Court, back in the Court any eye you catch could be Love peal-of-bells-firework-burst Love, all among the sweet spray of the music and the rainbowing prisms of the lights, this could be the one huge mystery every book and film and song is sizzling with; could be your one-and-only shoulder to lean your head on, fingers woven with yours and lips gentle on your hair and Our Song pouring out of every speaker. This could be the one heart that will open to your touch and offer up its never-spoken secrets, that has spaces perfectly shaped to hold all of yours. — Tana French

Prisms Quotes By Louis Fischer

Biography is history seen through the prism of a person. — Louis Fischer

Prisms Quotes By Harry Shearer

I think the British learn their history through the prism of this gallery of grotesques known as the royals. — Harry Shearer

Prisms Quotes By Charles R. Brown

The white light streams down to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow. Take your own color in the pattern and be just that. — Charles R. Brown
