Buttermilks California quotes by Elizabeth Strout
#1. How can people in California have problems with their feet?" asks Molly moving around Olive with a plate of sandwiches. "Don't they drive everywhere? #Quote by Elizabeth Strout
Buttermilks California quotes by Taya Kyle
#2. Around Christmas 2003, we visited Chris's parents in Texas. I found myself exceptionally hungry, though I couldn't figure out why. When we came back to California, I just felt something was off.
Could I be…pregnant?
Nah.
I bought a pregnancy test just in case. Chris and I had always planned to have children, but we weren't in a rush about it. In fact, we had only recently decided to be "a little less careful." It was a compromise between our spontaneous impulses and our careful planning instincts, which we both shared. We figured, if it happens somewhere in the next year…
I was upstairs in the house working when I decided to take a break and check things out.
Wow.
WOW!!!
Chris happened to be home fiddling with something in the garage. I ran downstairs, holding the stick in my hand. When I got there, I held it up, waving.
"Hey, babe," he said, looking at me as if I were waving a sword.
"Come here," I said. "I have to show you something."
He came over. I showed him the stick.
"Okay?"
"Look!"
"What is it?"
"Look at this!"
Obviously, he wasn't familiar with home pregnancy tests. Maybe that's a guy thing-given that the tests reveal either your worst nightmare or one of the most exciting events of your life. I'd wager every woman in America knows what they are and how they work.
Slowly it dawned on him.
"Oh my God," he said, stunned. "Are you…?"
"Yes!"
We confirmed it at the doctor's soo #Quote by Taya Kyle
Buttermilks California quotes by Billy Bob Thornton
#3. I'll always consider myself a Southerner. A lot of people put California down, but my dreams were realized there. #Quote by Billy Bob Thornton
Buttermilks California quotes by Cesar Chavez
#4. Across the San Joaquin valley, across California, across the entire nation, wherever there are injustices against men and women and children who work in the fields - there you will see our flags - with the black eagle with the white and red background, flying. Our movement is spreading like flames across a dry plain. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Buttermilks California quotes by Mary J. Miller
#5. I don't revise a lot when writing short stories. As far as the novel, I definitely thought more about plot. Honestly, I'm still pretty confused about what "plot" means. I've been reading some of my Goodreads reviews and one reader noted that the The Last Days of California "reads like a short story stretched to the breaking point, padded and brought into novel range ... " I don't know what people want, really. #Quote by Mary J. Miller
Buttermilks California quotes by Alex Rocco
#6. I had to get out of the Boston area, so I flipped a coin and said, 'Heads - Miami, tails - California. I was in my mid-20s and came out here with no training. Acting wasn't even in my mind. #Quote by Alex Rocco
Buttermilks California quotes by Barry Lopez
#7. Every story is an act of trust between a writer and a reader: each story, in the end, is social. Whatever a writer sets down can help or harm a community of which he or she is a part. When I write I can imagine a child in California wishing to give away what he's just seen- a wild animal fleeing though creosote cover in the desert, casting a bright-eyed backward glance or three lines of overheard conversation that seem to contain everything we need understand to repair the gaping rift between body and soul. I look back at that boy turning in glee beneath his pigeons and know it can take a lifetime to convey what you mean, to find the opening. You watch, you set it down. Then you try again. #Quote by Barry Lopez
Buttermilks California quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#8. Los Angeles in 1912 was a sprawling flatland stretching between the ocean and the mountains. Within a thirty-five-mile radius, there were forty incorporated towns, and it was close to impossible to know where one ended and another began. While the southern California land boom of the 1880s had not brought the number of people who swarmed northern California in the Gold Rush, it had induced a variety of characters to seek out the sun and a new life. Families determined to create their own little utopias bought several hundred or thousands of acres at a time, primarily from the Spanish land grants that still dominated the area, infusing the new communities with their Midwestern values. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Buttermilks California quotes by Gary Miller
#9. California has the highest number of illegal immigrants residing in its borders. The estimated number of illegal alien residents in California was about 2.2 million, or nearly 32 percent of the total number of illegal immigrants in the United States. #Quote by Gary Miller
Buttermilks California quotes by Buan Boonaca
#10. Nothing was in walking distance, so the sidewalks stayed empty and clean, free from the discoloration dirty-shoed pedestrians cause. #Quote by Buan Boonaca
Buttermilks California quotes by Adam Rayner
#11. I certainly have a sliver of me, which is definitely American, and feels a great pull towards where I spent time when I was very young, which is in California. #Quote by Adam Rayner
Buttermilks California quotes by Arthur Laffer
#12. California is the highest-tax state in the nation and has been for a long time. It has the highest-paid teachers in the nation, by far - $400 a month more than New Jersey - and yet California is the third lowest state on test scores for fourth and eighth grade English and math in the nation, and has been at the low level for a long, long time. #Quote by Arthur Laffer
Buttermilks California quotes by Ann Coulter
#13. One more item for the delusional Miss Grundys still obtusely citing Reagan as their model of "niceness": As governor of California, Reagan gave student protesters at Berkeley the finger. Remember that next time you ask yourself: "What would Reagan do?" People who are afraid of ideas whitewash Reagan like they whitewash Jesus . Sorry to break it to you, but the Reagan era did not consist of eight years of Reagan joking about his naps. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Buttermilks California quotes by John Muir
#14. I was awakened by a tremendous earthquake, and though I hadn ever before enjoyed a storm of this sort, the strange thrilling motion could not be mistaken, and I ran out of my cabin, both glad and frightened, shouting, "A noble earthquake! A noble earthquake" feeling sure I was going to learn something. #Quote by John Muir
Buttermilks California quotes by Caroline C. Leighton
#15. The only way we know summer is coming is by the more chilling winds, the increased dust, the tawny color of the hills, and the general dying look of things. #Quote by Caroline C. Leighton
Buttermilks California quotes by Michael Moore
#16. If someone did this Fahrenheit 9/11 to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him! Boston, New York, D.C., and the planes' destination of California - these were places that voted AGAINST Bush! #Quote by Michael Moore
Buttermilks California quotes by Bernard DeVoto
#17. California was almost entirely a dream, a dream vague but deep in the minds of a westering people. #Quote by Bernard DeVoto
Buttermilks California quotes by Joan Didion
#18. The apparent ease of California life is an illusion, and those who believe the illusion real live here in only the most temporary way. #Quote by Joan Didion
Buttermilks California quotes by Madeline Howard

Buttermilks California quotes by Jerry Brown

Buttermilks California quotes by Harun Yahya
#22. If the information coded in DNA were written
down, it would make a giant library consisting of an estimated
900 volumes of encyclopedias consisting of 500
pages each.
A very interesting dilemma emerges at this point: DNA
can replicate itself only with the help of some specialized
proteins (enzymes). However, the synthesis of these
enzymes can be realized only by the information coded in
DNA. As they both depend on each other, they have to
exist at the same time for replication. This brings the scenario
that life originated by itself to a deadlock. Prof. Leslie
Orgel, an evolutionist of repute from the University of San
Diego, California, confesses this fact in the September
1994 issue of the Scientific American magazine:
It is extremely improbable that proteins and nucleic acids,
both of which are structurally complex, arose spontaneously
in the same place at the same time. Yet it also
seems impossible to have one without the other. And so,
at first glance, one might have to conclude that life could
never, in fact, have originated by chemical means.6
No doubt, if it is impossible for life to have originated
from natural causes, then it has to be accepted that life
was "created" in a supernatural way. This fact explicitly
invalidates the theory of evolution, whose main purpose is
to deny creation. #Quote by Harun Yahya
Buttermilks California quotes by Margot Livesey
#23. In How to Be an American Housewife Margaret Dilloway creates an irresistible heroine. Shoko is stubborn, contrary, proud, a wonderful housewife and full of deeply conflicted feelings. I wanted to shake her, even as I was cheering her on, and this cunningly structured novel allowed me to do both. It also took me on two intricate journeys, from post-war Japan and the shadow of Nagasaki to contemporary California, and from motherhood to daughterhood and back again. A profound and suspenseful debut. #Quote by Margot Livesey
Buttermilks California quotes by Sheila Ballantyne
#24. In California death is one of the most successfully kept secrets there is. If you doubt this, try to find a cemetery. #Quote by Sheila Ballantyne

Buttermilks California quotes by Edan Lepucki
#27. I am always worried that over-planning and outlining will kill the magic of writing; most of the world I created in 'California' occurred via good old sexy sentence-making. #Quote by Edan Lepucki
Buttermilks California quotes by Francine Rivers
#28. But strength alone, though of the Muses born, Is like a fallen angel: trees uptorn, Darkness, and worms, and shrouds, and sepulchers Delight it; for it feeds upon the burrs And thorns of life; forgetting the great end Of poesy, that it should be a friend To soothe the cares, and lift the thoughts of man. KEATS CALIFORNIA, 1850 #Quote by Francine Rivers
Buttermilks California quotes by Margaret Keane
#29. For many years, I had allowed my second husband to take credit for my paintings. But one day, unable to continue the deception any longer, I left him and my home in California and moved to Hawaii. #Quote by Margaret Keane
Buttermilks California quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#30. From the days of the Assyrians and the Qin, great empires were usually built through violent conquest. In 1914 too, all the major powers owed their status to successful wars. For instance, Imperial Japan became a regional power thanks to its victories over China and Russia; Germany became Europe's top dog after its triumphs over Austria-Hungary and France; and Britain created the world's largest and most prosperous empire through a series of splendid little wars all over the planet. Thus in 1882 Britain invaded and occupied Egypt, losing a mere fifty-seven soldiers in the decisive Battle of Tel el-Kebir. Whereas in our days occupying a Muslim country is the stuff of Western nightmares, following Tel el-Kebir the British faced little armed resistance, and for more than six decades controlled the Nile Valley and the vital Suez Canal. Other European powers emulated the British, and whenever governments in Paris, Rome or Brussels contemplated putting boots on the ground in Vietnam, Libya or Congo, their only fear was that somebody else might get there first.
Even the United States owed its great-power status to military action rather than economic enterprise alone. In 1846 it invaded Mexico, and conquered California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming and Oklahoma. The peace treaty also confirmed the previous US annexation of Texas. About 13,000 American soldiers died in the war, which added 2.3 million square kilometres to the "United S #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Buttermilks California quotes by Karen Thompson Walker
#31. Sometimes I think I might not have written 'The Age of Miracles' if I hadn't grown up in California, if I hadn't been exposed to its very particular blend of beauty and disaster, of danger and denial. #Quote by Karen Thompson Walker
Buttermilks California quotes by Thelma Houston
#32. When I joined, I was one of the first artists to sign on to the Motown West label when they opened their first studio in California. At the studio, you'd run into Stevie Wonder, you'd run into Marvin Gaye ... it was very special. #Quote by Thelma Houston
Buttermilks California quotes by Tasha Smith
