Cracks quotes by Matt Taibbi
#1. In the new American ghetto, the nightmare engine is bubble economics, a kind of high-tech casino scam that kills neighborhoods just like dope does, only the product is credit, not crack or heroin. It concentrates the money of the population in just a few hands with brutal efficiency, just like narco-business, and just as in narco-business the product itself, debt, steadily demoralizes the customer to the point where he's unable to prevent himself from being continually dominated. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Cracks quotes by Erin Hanson
#2. Do not hold your breath for anyone,
Do not wish your lungs to be still,
It may delay the cracks from spreading,
But eventually they will.
Sometimes to keep yourself together
You must allow yourself to leave,
Even if breaking your own heart
Is what it takes to let you breathe. #Quote by Erin Hanson
Cracks quotes by Norton Juster
#3. They walked for a while, all silent in their thoughts, until they reached the car and Alec drew a fine telescope from his shirt and handed it to Milo.
"Carry this with you on your journey," he said softly, "for there is much worth noticing that often escapes the eye. Through it you can see everything from the tender moss in a sidewalk crack to the glow of the farthest star - and, most important of all, you can see things as they really are, not just as they seem to be. It's my gift to you. #Quote by Norton Juster
Cracks quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#4. This," I say softly, "is going to change everything."
I don't mean it the way I usually do.
I don't mean that change is hard or scary, though it's definitely both.
I mean only to say this: that sometimes, through good luck or bad, through curses or fate, the world cracks itself open, and afterward nothing will ever be the same.
All I mean is that this seems like one of those times. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith
Cracks quotes by Caren Lissner
#5. There was all the time in the world now – plenty of time for self-analysis, for self-doubts, for regrets. Being part of a couple meant you fit somewhere, that your cracks and erosions were hidden to the rest of the world. When you suddenly had that ripped apart, the hidden blemishes were exposed like cross-sections of a log. #Quote by Caren Lissner
Cracks quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#6. Life cracks us into unrecognizable shards of former incarnations. Slivers of our hurt and our pain and our shame nestles next to fragments of our truth, our divinity, our fierce reclamation of power.

It is this very brokenness that allows us to knit together, kaleidoscope style. And we spin and shift and turn to the light until we appear brilliant, lit from within. Suddenly we are revealed; unexpected beauty born directly from brokenness.

We have to be willing to break in order to become. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Cracks quotes by Ken Wilber
#7. When the thunder roars, do you not hear your Self? When the lightening cracks, do you not see your Self? When clouds float quietly across the sky, is this not your very own limitless Being, waving back at you? #Quote by Ken Wilber
Cracks quotes by Jim Hightower
#8. Liberals want to manage the damage with government programs to take care of those who have fallen between the cracks. Populists want to fix the cracks so that people don't fall in the first place. #Quote by Jim Hightower
Cracks quotes by Julia Cameron
#9. And why are we supposed to be serious about God? Did God show up and crack the whip? "You there, Annie in Ohio, I see you laughing a lot and frankly it really pisses Me off ... " (50) #Quote by Julia Cameron
Cracks quotes by Neil Hilborn
#10. You told me once that you would break my heart.
I asked you not to be such a goddamn
cliché, but then you left me because part
of you was still broken. You say some man

pried open the cracks of you, dug holes where
once there were none, so now you just cannot
love me how I deserve, and darling, therein
lies the problem: you can you can you can

you can you can you can you can you can.
Your reasons why are no good reasons why.
We said we should not fall in love and then
we showed each other our most quiet

scars: my wrists, your upper thighs, and now you say
this too easily: you say you cannot stay. #Quote by Neil Hilborn
Cracks quotes by Tyler Knott Gregson
#11. Somewhere
someone
thinks they love
someone else
exactly like
I
love you.
Somewhere
someone shakes
from the ripple
of a thousand butterflies
inside a
single stomach.
Somewhere
someone
is packing their
bags
to see the world
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is reaching through
the most
terrifying few
feet of space
to hold the
hand
of someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is watching
someone else's
chest
rise and fall
with the
breath
of slumber.
Somewhere
someone
is pouring
ink like blood
onto pages
fighting
to say the truth
that has
no words.
Somewhere
someone
is waiting
patient
but exhausted
to just
be
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is opening
their eyes
to a sunrise
in someplace
they have never
seen.
Somewhere
someone
is pulling out
the petals
twisting the
apple stem
picking up
the heads up penny
rubbing the
rabbits foot
knocking on
wood
throwing
coins into
fountains
hunting for
the only clover
with only 4 leaves
skipping over
the cracks
snapping the
wishbone
crossing their
fingers
blowing out
the candles

Cracks quotes by D.R. Graham
#12. If they do have her are they going to kill her? Don't lie to me."

I study the cracks in the asphalt for a while before making eye contact. "If they do have her, we need to find her as soon as possible. #Quote by D.R. Graham
Cracks quotes by Suzanne Collins
#13. The pain over my heart returns, and from it I imagine tiny fissures spreading out into my body. Through my torso, down my arms and legs, over my face, leaving it crisscrossed with cracks. One good jolt ... and I could shatter into strange razor-sharp shards. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Cracks quotes by John Mark Green
#14. I am no blank slate for love to write on.
My heart has walls marred with cracks,
bloodstains, and bullet holes;
graffitied over by past lovers. #Quote by John Mark Green
Cracks quotes by Mary Karr
#15. I kept the fingers of my left hand crossed all the time, while on my right-hand fingers I counted anything at all - steps to the refrigerator, seconds on the clock, words in a sentence - to keep my head occupied. The counting felt like something to hang on to, as if finding the right numbers might somehow crack the code on whatever system ran the slippery universe we were moving through. #Quote by Mary Karr
Cracks quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#16. Guys kick friendship all over just like a soccer, nonetheless it does not appear to crack. Girls deal with it like glass and it goes to items. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Cracks quotes by Neil Gaiman
#17. The land is vast. Soon enough, our people abandoned us, remembered us only as creatures of the old land, as things that had not come with them to the new. Our true believers passed on, or stopped believing, and we were left, lost and scared and dispossessed, only what little smidgens of worship or belief we could find. And to get by as best as we could.

We have, let us face it and admit it, little influence. We prey on them, and we take from them, and we get by; we strip and we whore and and we drink too much; we pump gas and we steal and we cheat and we exist in the cracks at the edges of society. Old gods, here in this land without gods. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Cracks quotes by Amy Zhang
#18. She looked around and saw all of the broken things in her wake, and then she looked inside herself ans saw the spidering cracks from the weight of all the things she had done. #Quote by Amy Zhang
Cracks quotes by Jimmy Santiago Baca
#19. I sat back in my wooden chair as they signed the paperwork and stared down at the arm rests, studying the various layers of paint, the chips and cracks. How many hands had gripped them? I wondered. What lives were attached to those hands, what dreams were shattered, what sorrows were they trying to squeeze out of their souls? #Quote by Jimmy Santiago Baca
Cracks quotes by Guy Ritchie
#20. I suppose directing on set is the most fun because it's a good crack and you feel you're on the battlefield whereas writing is a fairly solitary undertaking. #Quote by Guy Ritchie
Cracks quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#21. When the shine is wearing off and the underlying cracks of a garlanded lifestyle become painfully apparent, reality may inexorably take its toll and gruelingly reveal the presence of a blatant and hideous gap of irrelevance and vanity. ("Could the milk man be the devil?" ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Cracks quotes by A.G. Howard
#22. Morpheus's gaze flashes to mine, then back to the chess piece wrapped in his magic. "Stop crying," his quirky voice scolds. "Queens don't cry. I taught you better than that."
I bite my quivering lip, and tiny Alice strokes the caterpillar's face. "But you're crying ... "
Morpheus lowers a wing and shades his cheek along with the transparent glimmer of his jeweled markings. "Well" - his shrill voice cracks slightly - "contrary to my preferences for lace and velvet, I'm not the queen. So I can cry all I like. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Cracks quotes by Katie McGarry
#23. Baseball isn't just a game. It's the smell of popcorn drifting in the air, the sight of bugs buzzing near the stadium lights,the roughness of the dirt beneath your cleats. It's the anticipation building in your chest as the anthem plays, the adrenaline rush when your bat cracks against the ball, and the surge of blood when the umpire shouts strike after you pitch. It's a team full of guys backing your every move, a bleacher full of people cheering you on. It's ... life #Quote by Katie McGarry
Cracks quotes by Dusty Rhodes
#24. I am the hit-maker, the record-breaker. I got style and grace, a pretty face. I'll make your back crack, your liver quiver. #Quote by Dusty Rhodes
Cracks quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#25. I've learned to stare at things. The walls. My hands. The cracks in the walls. The lines on my fingers. The shades of gray in the concrete. The shape of my fingernails. I pick one thing and stare at it for what must be hours. I keep time in my head by counting the seconds as they pass. I keep days in my head by writing them down. Today is day two. Today is the second day. Today is a day.
Today.
It's so cold. It's so cold. It's so cold.
Please please please
I started screaming today. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Cracks quotes by Jon Stewart
#26. New York City isn't Chuck E. Cheese. We don't have ball pits for the kids to play in. We have titty bars and crack. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Cracks quotes by S. Bear Bergman
#27. One bright pansy popping through a sidewalk crack will get weeded or stepped on; it's not until twenty fabulous flowers bust through and the pavement is ruined anyway that someone decides maybe it isn't a sidewalk at all, but a flower garden. So please, for the love of gender
go bloom. #Quote by S. Bear Bergman
Cracks quotes by Jodi Picoult
#28. Most people who offer their help do it to make themselves feel better, not us. To be honest, I don't blame them. It's superstition: If you give assistance to the family in need ... if you throw salt over your shoulder ... if you don't step on the cracks, then maybe you'll be immune. Maybe you'll be able to convince yourself that this could never happen to you. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Cracks quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#29. I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Cracks quotes by Robert Lowell
#30. September twenty-second, Sir, the bough cracks with unpicked apples, and at dawn the small-mouth bass breaks water, gorged with spawn. #Quote by Robert Lowell
Cracks quotes by Harry Browne
#31. When paper money systems begin to crack at the seams, the run to gold could be explosive. #Quote by Harry Browne
Cracks quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#32. In the absence of love, sex ceases to be an instrument of intimacy and turns into a weapon causing dents and cracks in the relationship. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Cracks quotes by Gwen Hayes
#33. As a young girl I thought, with fervent hope, that ten years was some kind of magic formula. That if I were seventeen instead of seven, I would know how to handle myself better in a situation. That a passing decade would fill in all the cracks where I ached, by adding wisdom or, at the very least, understanding. #Quote by Gwen Hayes
Cracks quotes by Mary Jo Putney
#34. Trees can grow from tiny cracks in stony cliffs, Kate. This may be a very small crack indeed - but it's a beginning. #Quote by Mary Jo Putney
Cracks quotes by Gayle Forman
#35. Except even at the start, when we were in that can't-get-enough-of-you-phase, there was like some invisible wall between us. At first I tried to take it down, but it took so much effort to even make cracks. And then I got tired of trying. Then I justified it. This was just how adult relationships were, how love felt once you had a few battle scars. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Cracks quotes by Colleen Hoover
#36. If you aren't on Goodreads, you should be. I've said it before, it's like Facebook for readers on crack. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Cracks quotes by Brene Brown
#37. We can't pack down hurt, nor can we off-load it to someone else while maintaining our authenticity and integrity. Most of us have been on the receiving end of one of these outbursts. Even if we have the insight to know that our boss, friend, colleague, or partner blew up at us because something tender was triggered and it's not actually about us, it still shatters trust and respect. Living, growing up, working, or worshipping on eggshells creates huge cracks in our sense of safety and self-worth. Over time, it can be experienced as trauma. #Quote by Brene Brown
Cracks quotes by The Notorious B.I.G.
#38. If I wasn't in the rap game,
I'd probably have a key knee-deep in the crack game.
Because the streets is a short stop:
Either you're slinging crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot. #Quote by The Notorious B.I.G.
Cracks quotes by V.E Schwab
#39. This is why I run.
Because caring was a thing with claws. It sank them in, and didn't let go. Caring hurt more than a knife to the leg, more than a few broken ribs, more than anything that bled or broke or healed again. Caring didn't break you clean. It was a bone that wouldn't set, a cut that wouldn't close.
It was better not to care - Lila tried not to care - but sometimes, people got in. Like a knife against armor, they found the cracks, slid past the guard, and you didn't know how deep they were buried until they were gone and you were bleeding on the floor. And it wasn't fair. #Quote by V.E Schwab
Cracks quotes by Jay Leno
#40. It's not called cocaine any more. It's now referred to as Crack Classic. #Quote by Jay Leno
Cracks quotes by Rob Ford
#41. I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine. #Quote by Rob Ford
Cracks quotes by J.A. Konrath
#42. The cab smelled like curry, cigarettes, and body odor, and the safety glass between me and the driver had cracks in it. #Quote by J.A. Konrath
Cracks quotes by Will Wilkinson
#43. The impulse to freeze the system, to try to tape all the cracks and staple all the cleavages, to ensure that nobody has to explain to their kid why Christmas this year is going to be a lousy Christmas, that is one of our greatest dangers. #Quote by Will Wilkinson
Cracks quotes by Amy Harmon
#44. My brain is already scrambled enough.""Cracked," I said, not thinking.
"Yeah." Moses scowled.
"Well, it's working for you." I turned and looked at my walls. "Cracks and all. In fact, if your brain wasn't cracked, none of the brilliance could spill out. Do you realize that? #Quote by Amy Harmon
Cracks quotes by RuPaul
#45. To this day it cracks me up to think that my debut on national British television as a reporter ends with me turning a trick. #Quote by RuPaul
Cracks quotes by T. S. Eliot
#46. The lamp hummed:
'Regard the moon,
La lune ne garde aucune rancune,
She winks a feeble eye,
She smiles into corners.
She smoothes the hair of the grass.
The moon has lost her memory.
A washed-out smallpox cracks her face,
Her hand twists a paper rose,
That smells of dust and old Cologne,
She is alone
With all the old nocturnal smells
That cross and cross across her brain.
The reminiscence comes
Of sunless dry geraniums
And dust in crevices,
Smells of chestnuts in the streets,
And female smells in shuttered rooms,
And cigarettes in corridors
And cocktail smells in bars. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Cracks quotes by Monica Holloway
#47. I'll always be damaged in a way. I had hoped that I could completely heal those cracks, but I'm starting to think the real trick is learning to live a full life in spite of them. Cracked people are everywhere, and so I can forgive myself for being overly anxious or easily frightened. But I will no longer allow myself to be swallowed by my past. I insist on having the happiest life I can muster, and I am in control of that now. #Quote by Monica Holloway
Cracks quotes by David Mitchell
#48. Did you not detect the hairline cracks in the plot? Such #Quote by David Mitchell
Cracks quotes by Lisa Scottoline
#49. Nobody was ever replaced in life, no hole completely filled or loss totally healed. You didn't need a medical degree to know that the human body really wasn't stronger in the broken places. Like any bone, the cracks would always show if you looked hard enough. #Quote by Lisa Scottoline
Cracks quotes by LL Cool J
#50. I think the key to working out is for people to think of water - just allow the workouts to fill out the cracks in your lives and seep into wherever you can fit it in. #Quote by LL Cool J
Cracks quotes by Gayle Forman
#51. It's okay,' he tells me. 'If you want to go. Everyone wants you to stay. I want you to stay more than I've ever wanted anything in my life.' His voice cracks with emotion. He stops, clears his throat, takes a breath, and continues. 'But that's what I want and I could see why it might not be what you want. So I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It's okay if you have to leave us. It's okay if you want to stop fighting.'

For the first time since I realized that Teddy was gone, too, I feel something unclench. I feel myself breathe. I know that Gramps can't be that late-inning pinch hitter I'd hoped for. He won't unplug my breathing tube or overdoes me with morphine or anything like that. But this is the first time today that anyone has acknowledged what I have lost. I know that the social worker warned Gran and Gramps not to upset me, but Gramps's recognition, and the permission he just offered me--it feels like a gift.

Gramps doesn't leave me. He slumps back into the chair. It's quiet now. So quiet you can almost hear other people's dreams. So quiet that you can almost hear me tell Gramps, 'Thank you. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Cracks quotes by Brady Anderson
#52. What cracks me up is people who think I don't take baseball seriously. It's the most important thing in my life. They don't know how hard it is for me to get a bad game out of my mind. I still can't, but I'm getting better. #Quote by Brady Anderson
Cracks quotes by H.D.
#53. Pompeii has nothing to teach us,
we know crack of volcanic fissure,
slow flow of terrible lava,
pressure on heart, lungs, the brain
about to burst its brittle case
(what the skull can endure!) #Quote by H.D.
Cracks quotes by Jiang Rong
#54. Does that mean that the grass doesn't constitute a life? That the grassland isn't a life? Out here, the grass and the grassland are the life, the big life. All else is the little life that depends on the big life for survival. Even wolves and humans are little life. Creatures that eat grass are worse than creatures that eat meat. To you, the gazelle is to be pitied. So the grass isn't to be pitied, is that it? The gazelles have four fast-moving legs, and most of the time wolves spit up blood from exhaustion trying to catch them. When the gazelles are thirsty, they run to the river to drink, and when they're cold, they run to a warm spot on the mountain to soak up some sun. But the grass? Grass is the big life, yet it is most fragile, the most miserable life. Its roots are shallow, the soil is thin, and though it lives on the ground, it cannot run away. Anyone can step on it, eat it, chew it, crush it. A urinating horse can burn a large spot in it. And if the grass grows in sand or in the cracks between rocks, it is even shorter, because it cannot grow flowers, which means it cannot spread its seeds. For us Mongols, there's nothing more deserving of pity than the grass. If you want to talk about killing, the the gazelles kill more grass than any mowing machine could. When they graze the land, isn't that killing? Isn't that taking the big life of the grassland? When you kill off the big life of the grassland, all the little lives are doomed. The damage done by the gazelles far #Quote by Jiang Rong
Cracks quotes by Tom Wolfe
#55. Seven thousand of them were indicted and arraigned, and then they entered the maw of the criminal justice system - right here - through the gateway into Gibraltar, where the vans were lined up. That was about 150 new cases, 150 more pumping hearts and morose glares, every week that the courts and the Bronx County District Attorney's Office were open. And to what end? The same stupid, dismal, pathetic, horrifying crimes were committed day in and day out, all the same. What was accomplished by assistant D.A.'s, by any of them, through all this relentless stirring of the muck? The Bronx crumbled and decayed a little more, and a little more blood dried in the cracks. The Doubts! One thing was accomplished for sure. The system was fed, and those vans brought in the chow. #Quote by Tom Wolfe
Cracks quotes by Mary Kay Zuravleff
#56. Math-thinking, I would say, encourages flipping and substituting letters in words (in the novel, one of the boys double-majors in math and myth, for example, and his twin cracks a joke about the father's handwriting that morphs "cacography" into "dadography"). #Quote by Mary Kay Zuravleff
Cracks quotes by Lauren Oliver
#57. Step on a crack , you'll break your mama's back.
Step on a stone, you'll end up all alone.
Step on a stick, you're bound to get the Sick.
Watch where you tread, you'll bring out all the dead.
- A common children's playground chant, usually accompanied by jumping rope or clapping. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Cracks quotes by Holly Black
#58. Sam counts the money carefully. I watch him in the mirror. "You know what I wish?" he asks when he's done.
"What?"
"That someone would convert my bed into a robot that would fight other bed robots to the death for me."
That startles a laugh out of me. "That would be pretty awesome."
A slow, shy smile spreads across his mouth. "And we could take bets on them. And be filthy rich."
I lean my head against the frame of the stall, looking at the tile wall and the pattern of yellowed cracks there, and grin. "I take back anything I might have
implied to the contrary. Sam, you are a genius. #Quote by Holly Black
Cracks quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#59. The light is supposed to enter through your breaks, wounds, and cracks. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Cracks quotes by Carolyn Weber
#60. And there you are. In the ring. With The Terror. it's just tiny, feeble you, another student or two smarter than you, and your professor, far smarter than you. Oh sure, your professor civilly serves tea or sherry depending on the time of day, but The Terror remains.
Gradually, however, The Terror morphs into The Excitement as you being to lose yourself in the luxurious tendrils of a stimulating argument. Time always flies, the hour (or two or three) leaving you exhausted, happy, perturbed, and yet strangely satisfied by the end…. As a result, pursuing one's degree at Oxford becomes for most not a matter of prerequisite for a job, or to please one's parents, or to make minimum income bracket. Rather, the opportunity to study here seals an experience marked by intense personal growth resulting from a genuine desire to learn. A heady, hearty experience that changes you forever because it cracks you open ultimately to the humility of learning, which is where all of this wanted to take you in the first place." 56 #Quote by Carolyn Weber
Cracks quotes by Snoop Dogg
#61. A lot of people like to fool you and say that you're not smart if you
never went to college, but common sense rules over everything. That's
what I learned from selling crack #Quote by Snoop Dogg
Cracks quotes by K. Bromberg
#62. I accept you, I tell him. All of you. The broken parts. The bent parts. The ones filled with shame. The cracks where hope seeps through. The little boy cowering in fear and the grown man still suffocating in his shadow. The demons that haunt. Your will to survive. And your spirit that fights. Every single part of you is what I love. What I accept. What I want to help heal. #Quote by K. Bromberg
Cracks quotes by Jim Norton
#63. I hope you slip in a puddle of AIDS and crack your head open #Quote by Jim Norton
Cracks quotes by Kate Avery Ellison
#64. When people have more pressing things on their minds other things fall through the cracks with time. #Quote by Kate Avery Ellison
Cracks quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#65. I want to shake them for their ignorance and scream that their Sistine Chapel is filled with cracks. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin
Cracks quotes by Tara Brown
#66. How is he so rich and hot and normal?"
I shake my head, "He's rich and hot, but he's not normal. I see a sickness in his eyes. They're broken like mine. Like a mirror with cracks in it but none of the glass has fallen out of the frame. #Quote by Tara Brown
Cracks quotes by Elizabeth Winder
#67. Before New York, the cracks were already there, but now they began to split open and gape, and the difference between how a thing or a place or a person appears and the reality becomes alarmingly visible, garish. #Quote by Elizabeth Winder
Cracks quotes by J. Lynn
#68. It was a cookie, not a crack pipe. #Quote by J. Lynn
Cracks quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#69. Burn, burn tree and fern!
Shrivel and scorch! A fizzling torch
To light the night for our delight,
Ya hey!

Bake and toast 'em, fry and roast 'em!
till beards blaze, and eyes glaze;
till hair smells and skins crack,
fat melts, and bones black
in cinders lie
beneath the sky!
So dwarves shall die,
and light the night for our delight,
Ya hey!
Ya-harri-hey!
Ya hoy! #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Cracks quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#70. He
set the backpack down on the floor. "It's easy to look at people and make
quick judgments about them, their present and their pasts, but you'd be amazed
at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is
only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not,
it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their
soul." - Ash #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Cracks quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
#71. And that date, too, is far off?'

'Far off; when it comes, think your end in this world is at hand!'

'How and what is the end? Look east, west, south and north.'

'In the north, where you never yet trod, towards the point whence your instincts have warned you, there a spectre will seize you. 'Tis Death! I see a ship - it is haunted - 'tis chased - it sails on. Baffled navies sail after that ship. It enters the regions of ice. It passes a sky red with meteors. Two moons stand on high, over ice-reefs. I see the ship locked between white defiles - they are ice-rocks. I see the dead strew the decks - stark and livid, green mold on their limbs. All are dead, but one man - it is you! But years, though so slowly they come, have then scathed you. There is the coming of age on your brow, and the will is relaxed in the cells of the brain. Still that will, though enfeebled, exceeds all that man knew before you, through the will you live on, gnawed with famine; and nature no longer obeys you in that death-spreading region; the sky is a sky of iron, and the air has iron clamps, and the ice-rocks wedge in the ship. Hark how it cracks and groans. Ice will imbed it as amber imbeds a straw. And a man has gone forth, living yet, from the ship and its dead; and he has clambered up the spikes of an iceberg, and the two moons gaze down on his form. That man is yourself; and terror is on you - terror; and terror has swallowed your will. And I see swarming up the ste #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
Cracks quotes by Leonard Holton
#72. He could judge with reasonable accuracy the amount of use a book had had. The first item to show any sign of wear was the dust jacket at the top and bottom of the spine. Little tears or cracks in the paper appeared here if a book had been taken off a shelf as much as three or four times. #Quote by Leonard Holton
Cracks quotes by Georges Bataille
#73. We want to decipher skies and paintings, go behind these starry backgrounds or these painted canvases and, like kids trying to find a gap in a fence, try to look through the cracks in the world. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Cracks quotes by Beth Moore
#74. The moment we decide to throw more energy into fighting for our mate than with him, the crack of a fist on the enemy's jaw splits the ears of angels. #Quote by Beth Moore
Cracks quotes by Charlotte Stein
#75. I love you, Quade," she says, once the kiss is done and with his warmth still in her. "Always have."
"See, I knew - "
She cracks him one on the arm before he can finish. It can't always be kisses and dancing, after all. Sometimes you've got to keep things zesty. Sharp. Tough, like love is. She's pretty sure her love for him is tough all right.
It let her run to him, after all.
"Okay, maybe I didn't know. But I knew this much - I've loved you since the first day you punched me in the face. And I'll love you 'til the last. #Quote by Charlotte Stein
Cracks quotes by Sophia Carey
#76. If love looks anything like a flower, then it is the small wildflowers that bloom between the cracks in walls, streets, graves, houses, people. Thriving in the most unlikely places. #Quote by Sophia Carey
Cracks quotes by Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
#77. If we aren't intersectional, some of us, the most vulnerable, are going to fall through the cracks. #Quote by Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
Cracks quotes by Helen Prejean
#78. I keep thinking of the gifts of my own upbringing, which I once took for granted: I can read any book I choose and comprehend it. I can write a complete sentence and punctuate it correctly. If I need help, I can call on judges, attorneys, educators, ministers. I wonder what I would be like if I had grown up without such protections and supports. What cracks would have turned up in my character? #Quote by Helen Prejean
Cracks quotes by Green Day
#79. She smashes her knuckles into winter
As autumn's wind fades into black
She is the saint of all the sinners,
the one whose fallen through the cracks ...

Cracks quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#81. God only knew what ran underneath the fierce self-discipline and emotional control that had come with my upbringing. But the cracks were there, I knew it, and they frightened me. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Cracks quotes by Bernard Crick
#82. One of the symptoms of a declining social order is that its members have to give most of their time to politics, rather than to the real tasks of economic production, in an attempt to patch up the cracks already appearing from the 'inner contradictions' of such a system. #Quote by Bernard Crick
Cracks quotes by Tupac Shakur
#83. I can't give up. It's a rap thang. And I ain't goin back to the crack game. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Cracks quotes by Diana Peterfreund
#84. Sometimes you met someone that changed the pattern, who wormed their way past the cracks in your heart, caulked them up, sealed themselves in, and stayed there. Sometimes they did it by insisting you meet them at every step, as Jamie had done to me. #Quote by Diana Peterfreund
Cracks quotes by Seneca.
#85. The minds of the preoccupied, as if harnessed in a yoke, cannot turn round and look behind them. So their lives vanish into an abyss; and just as it is no use pouring any amount of liquid into a container without a bottom to catch and hold it, so it does not matter how much time we are given if there is nowhere for it to settle; it escapes through the cracks and holes of the mind. #Quote by Seneca.
Cracks quotes by William Shakespeare
#86. I'll take thy word for faith, not ask thine oath; Who shuns not to break one will sure crack both. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Cracks quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#87. Everything has a past, a voice, existed at some point, even things as small and seemingly meaningless as a house in a huge suburb. It's a house like every other house ... but at some point a family lived there, made it theirs, made it important. When people forget that history, that somebody at some point thought the house mattered, it just becomes an empty pile of nailed wood and brick and concrete that gets torn down for some strip mall or chain store to take its place ... and that's what happens more and more now, everything is disposable, always replaced with no thought at all. That's where things get lost, memories get lost, humanity slips through the cracks, because when we all fail to pay attention to the things that make up our lives, we're no longer human at all, not really. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Cracks quotes by T.J. Klune
#88. The big kid hasn't said anything yet. 'I do like hearing myself talk,' I say, 'only because I have a lot of neat things to say, but eventually the conversation will run out in, like, four or five years, and then where will we be?'
Wonder of all wonders, he cracks a little smile. I don't blame him. I am pretty funny. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Cracks quotes by Walter M. Miller Jr.
#89. Centuries old, but recently widened, the highway was the same road used by pagan armies, pilgrims, peasants, donkey carts, nomads, wild horsemen out of the east, artillery, tanks, and ten-ton trucks. Its traffic gushed or trickled or dripped, according to the age and season. Once before, long ago, there had been six lanes and robot traffic. Then the traffic had stopped, the paving had cracked, and sparse grass grew in the cracks after an occasional rain. Dust had covered it. Desert dwellers had dug up its broken concrete for the building of hovels and barricades. Erosion made it a desert trail, crossing wilderness. But now there were six lanes and robot traffic, as before. #Quote by Walter M. Miller Jr.
Cracks quotes by Anne Lamott
#90. It is a violation of trust to use your kids as caulking for the cracks in you. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Cracks quotes by L.H. Cosway
#91. I glanced at the man beside me and fell in love even deeper, because he'd flicked the switch. He'd turned on the light bulb in my mind, shown me a new way of thinking just like he did when we were teenagers. Only this time, I didn't hate the world. I didn't see the cracks. I saw all the beautiful, flawed and wonderful parts that held them all together. #Quote by L.H. Cosway
Cracks quotes by Dorothy Allison
#92. Change, when it comes, cracks everything open. #Quote by Dorothy Allison
Cracks quotes by Carly Anne West
#93. When you're little, you can't see all the walls, you know? You just see acres and acres of space, and it's all yours to run. You can do cartwheels and build forts and bury treasure to find later. But something happens when you get older. You start to see the walls. Maybe it's because you get taller or something. And then you see the cracks, you see how unstable it all is. And you try to test the walls' strength, and you pull a little chunk of it out, and pretty soon, all the sides tumble down, and then you're buried under all of it. #Quote by Carly Anne West
Cracks quotes by Jandy Nelson
#94. The sunset has turned the sky into a carnival of color as Noah and Brian walk out of the forest, hand in hand. Brian notices Dad and me first and shrugs his hand away, but Noah immediately finds it again. At this, Brian's eyes squint up and his face cracks open in a heart-crushing smile. Noah, like always around Brian, can barely keep his head on his neck, he's so happy. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Cracks quotes by Padma Lakshmi
#95. Perhaps I didn't voice my unhappiness soon enough; rather, I spent more time feeling like a disappointment and scrambling to patch our cracks than I did considering whether he required an unreasonable level of tending. #Quote by Padma Lakshmi
Cracks quotes by Lauren Blakely
#96. He's heart-stoppingly handsome, and he has this brooding sense about him whenever I see his pictures. As if he rarely cracks a smile, so when he does you know it must be special ... #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Cracks quotes by Hillary Clinton
#97. From her concession speech: Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it ... You can be so proud that, from now on, it will be unremarkable for a woman to win primary state victories, unremarkable to have a woman in a close race to be our nominee, unremarkable to think that a woman can be the President of the United States. And that is truly remarkable. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Cracks quotes by Charles Dickens
#98. (a specially oily old gentleman in a blanket, with a swan's-down tippet for a beard, and a web of cracks all over him like rich pie-crust), #Quote by Charles Dickens
Cracks quotes by Louis Kahn
#99. Even a room which must be dark needs at least a crack of light to know how dark it is. #Quote by Louis Kahn
Cracks quotes by Kristin Hannah
#100. Love rips the shit out of you and puts you back together like a broken toy, with all kinds of cracks and edges. It's not about the falling in love. It's about the landing, the staying where you said you'd be and working to keep the love strong. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Cracks quotes by Jessica N. Watkins
#101. Trust is like a mirror; once its broken, you can glue it back together, but you can still see the cracks in that motherfucker's reflection. #Quote by Jessica N. Watkins
Cracks quotes by Anne Carson
#102. Girls are cruelest to themselves.
Someone like Emily Brontë,
who remained a girl all her life despite her body as a woman,
had cruelty drifted up in all the cracks of her like spring snow. #Quote by Anne Carson
Cracks quotes by Nancy B. Brewer
#103. The wind blowing through the cracks in the walls was fitting for this isolated and lonely place. #Quote by Nancy B. Brewer
Cracks quotes by Neil Hilborn
#104. I will whisper your name
From the cracks in the canyon rocks

And you will know that this is heaven,
Knowing that someone will always remember

Your irises and where you hid your love
Letters and why you could never speak

In anything but short sentences. #Quote by Neil Hilborn
Cracks quotes by Bono
#105. I think carrying moral baggage is very dangerous for an artist. If you have a duty, it's to be true and not cover up the cracks. #Quote by Bono
Cracks quotes by Eugenio Montale
#106. Happiness, for you we walk on a knife edge. To the eyes you are a flickering light, to the feet, thin ice that cracks; and so may no one touch you who loves you. #Quote by Eugenio Montale
Cracks quotes by Jessica Marie Gilliland
#107. The cracks in the ground opened wider like hungry mouths with jagged teeth. They were eager for the soul that sat disconnected and unprotected in my meager body.
This time I would let the fire have me. #Quote by Jessica Marie Gilliland
Cracks quotes by Vera Nazarian
#108. Being smart as a whip includes knowing when not to crack it. #Quote by Vera Nazarian
Cracks quotes by Meda Chesney-Lind
#109. When some of the gangs got involved with the drug trade, particularlythe crack cocaine trade, and the lethal violence started to flare up in the '80s, then there was a great deal of public attention on gangs and a great deal of concern about what was going on in these social groups. #Quote by Meda Chesney-Lind
Cracks quotes by Michael Phelps
#110. When we got in the race, we knew what we had to do and knew what we wanted to do. Having three of four guys from the American record 800 free relay is a pretty solid relay, so we thought we could take a crack at the U.S. Open record tonight. We're all a little tired, but that's fifth-fastest American relay ever, so it's not a bad time. We ended tonight on a great note. #Quote by Michael Phelps
Cracks quotes by Alex Turner
#111. There have always been jokes all over our songs; I originally started writing lyrics to make my friends crack a smile, which is difficult. #Quote by Alex Turner
Cracks quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#112. I don't have much interest in writing if there are not opportunities to crack open the inherited forms. The writing I love to read most does this as well. I'm a form junkie. #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Cracks quotes by Reba Riley
#113. This is why being broken is so beautiful: being broken means you have cracks for love and light to shine through, gaps for the Godiverse to burrow and bloom, space to move from who you are to who you will become. #Quote by Reba Riley
Cracks quotes by Douglas Coupland
#114. I find people who prejudge reality TV to be annoying. Art comes from anywhere. Culture can ooze out of any crack. Prejudging is the death of creativity. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Cracks quotes by Thisuri Wanniarachchi
#115. As the doctors told him, he wanted to scream out loud and cry. He held his heavy head up
and clenched his teeth and fists. "Men don't cry," his grandpa used to say. "Men don't cry." �8
But he cried. Like a baby. He cried till he could feel cracks in his heart as he breathed. He
cried till he knew he would never love again. #Quote by Thisuri Wanniarachchi
Cracks quotes by Stephanie Kallos
#116. Her heart was finished. It bore, perhaps, records of life, but it wasn't alive. Too late for decoration. Too late for effects. Further handling could only result in cracks and fractures. People could cut themselves on the edgesof her heart, she was sure of it. #Quote by Stephanie Kallos
Cracks quotes by Shea Ernshaw
#117. It starts as a low croon that rolls in with the tide, a sound so faint it might just be the wind blowing through the clapboard shutters, through the portholes of docked fishing boats, and into narrow cracks along sagging doorways. But after the first night, the harmony of voices become undeniable. An enchanting hymn sailing over the water's surface, cool and soft and alluring. The Swan sisters have awakened. #Quote by Shea Ernshaw
Cracks quotes by Dan Rather
#118. I got addicted. News, particularly daily news, is more addictive than crack cocaine, more addictive than heroin, more addictive than cigarettes. #Quote by Dan Rather
Cracks quotes by Colleen Hoover
#119. Look at us. Two lonely kids who slipped through all the cracks, but then climbed right back up to the top of the world. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Cracks quotes by Bjork
#120. If you wake up / And the day feels broken / Just lean into the crack #Quote by Bjork
Cracks quotes by Micah J. Murray
#121. But then, you see the cracks in the system. You begin to question. You realize that some of the answers you spent your young life memorizing were simply wrong.You realize that those who had promised to lead you to Jesus had left you stranded in the desert instead (Relevant Magazine). #Quote by Micah J. Murray
Cracks quotes by Steven Pinker
#122. The mind is more comfortable in reckoning probabilities in terms of the relative frequency of remembered or imagined events. That can make recent and memorable events - a plane crash, a shark attack, an anthrax infection - loom larger on one's worry list than more frequent and boring events, such as the car crashes and ladder falls that get printed beneath the fold on page B14. And it can lead risk experts to speak one language and ordinary people to hear another. In hearings for a proposed nuclear waste site, an expert might present a fault tree that lays out the conceivable sequences of events by which radioactivity might escape. For example, erosion, cracks in the bedrock, accidental drilling, or improper sealing might cause the release of radioactivity into groundwater. In turn, groundwater movement, volcanic activity, or an impact of a large meteorite might cause the release of radioactive wastes into the biosphere. Each train of events can be assigned a probability, and the aggregate probability of an accident from all the causes can be estimated. When people hear these analyses, however, the are not reassured but become more fearful than ever. They hadn't realized there are so many ways for something to go wrong! They mentally tabulate the number of disaster scenarios, rather than mentally aggregating the probabilities of the disaster scenarios. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Cracks quotes by Liu Cixin
#123. Some of the fragments bore clear scratches, reminding him that those things had indeed taken place. The details were vivid, but the feelings had vanished without a trace. The past was like a handful of sand you thought you were squeezing tightly, but which had already run out through the cracks between your fingers. Memory was a river that had run dry long ago, leaving only scattered gravel in a lifeless riverbed. He had lived life always looking out for the next thing, and whenever he had gained, he had also lost, leaving him with little in the end. He #Quote by Liu Cixin
Cracks quotes by Tim Kang
#124. A lot of people are actually surprised when I do open up my mouth and smile a little bit, and crack a joke and drink a beer. #Quote by Tim Kang
Cracks quotes by Logan Pearsall Smith
#125. It is through the cracks in our brains that ecstasy creeps in. #Quote by Logan Pearsall Smith
Cracks quotes by Atul Gawande
#126. Teamwork may just be hard in certain lines of work. Under conditions of extreme complexity, we inevitably rely on a division of tasks and expertise - in the operating room, for example, there is the surgeon, the surgical assistant, the scrub nurse, the circulating nurse, the anesthesiologist, and so on. They can each be technical masters at what they do. That's what we train them to be, and that alone can take years. But the evidence suggests we need them to see their job not just as performing their isolated set of tasks well but also as helping the group get the best possible results. This requires finding a way to ensure that the group lets nothing fall between the cracks and also adapts as a team to whatever problems might arise. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Cracks quotes by Melinda Gates
#127. Kids are falling through the cracks and nobody notices it. That to me is what's wrong with the school system. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Cracks quotes by John Green
#128. I don't know the word for the feeling if there is one, but it's that feeling you get - or I hope you get it, anyway - when you realize the smallness of you, and the largeness of Everything Else. I'm not saying God necessarily. I'm saying you're outside at night and it's raining and you don't have an umbrella and you're running to get inside but then you stop and maybe you hold your hands palms up and feel the rain pound against your fingerprints and soak through your clothes and your wet hair against your neck and you realize how amazing it is while the thunder cracks. #Quote by John Green
Cracks quotes by Pam Godwin
#129. They both carried a million cracks beneath the skin. Even under the stark light of the fluorescents, it was hard to see which of them was more broken. But for the first time, she felt like she had to vanquish her mental illness not for herself but for someone else. Because she was broken with him, and if she fixed herself, maybe she could make him a little less broken, too. #Quote by Pam Godwin
Cracks quotes by Janet Mock
#130. Trans women of color dangerously fall in between the cracks of racial justice, feminist and LGbt movements. #Quote by Janet Mock
Cracks quotes by Frances Hardinge
#131. She could find no purchase on the older woman's marble-smooth countenance. There were no cracks to give her a view into her soul. #Quote by Frances Hardinge

Cracks quotes by Marlen Komar
#133. And me, standing under the splintered night,
catching fractured glimpses into the black behind the black,
hearing the prayers of stars, the angry whispers of the dark summer night.

Its voice cracks,
on your name.

My eyes close,
on your name. #Quote by Marlen Komar
Cracks quotes by Alexa Vega
#134. People are expecting me to still be fourteen years old. It cracks me up, especially when people see me walk by with my husband. They're like, 'What? You're married? You're not old enough to be married.' Thank you. I'm glad that you think that. #Quote by Alexa Vega
Cracks quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#135. Be informed, also, that this good and savoury Parish is the home of Hectors, Trapanners, Biters who all go under the general appelation of Rooks. Here are all the Jilts, Cracks, Prostitutes, Night-walkers, Whores, Linnen-lifters, who are like so many Jakes, Privies, Houses of Office, Ordures, Excrements, Easments and piles of Sir-reverence: the whores of Ratcliffe High-way smell of Tarpaulin and stinking Cod from their continuall Traffick with seamen's Breeches. There are other such wretched Objects about these ruined Lanes, all of them lamentable Instances of Vengeance. And it is not strange (as some think) how they will haunt the same Districts and will not leave off their Crimes until they are apprehended, for these Streets are their Theatre. Theft, Whoredom and Homicide peep out of the very Windows of their Souls; Lying, Perjury, Fraud, Impudence and Misery are stamped upon their very Countenances as now they walk within the Shaddowe of my Church. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Cracks quotes by Douglas M. Laurent
#136. d.laurent
I, Prayer: A Poem

I, Prayer, know no hour. No season, no day, no month nor year.
No boundary, no barrier or limitation–no blockade hinders Me.
There is no border or wall I cannot breach.
I move inexorably forward; distance holds Me not.
I span the cosmos in the twinkling of an eye.
I knowest it all.
I am the most powerful force in the Universe.
Who then is My equal?
Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook?
None is so fierce that dare stir him up.
Surely, I may'st with but a Word.
Who then is able to stand before Me?
I am the wind, the earth, the metal.
I am the very empyrean vault of Heaven Herself.
I span the known and the unknown beyond
Eternity's farthest of edges.
And whatsoever under Her wings is Mine.
I am a gentle stream, a fiery wrath
penetrating; wearing down mountains
–the hardest and softest of substances.
I am a trickling brook to fools of want
lost in the deserts of their own desires.
I am a Niagara to those who drink in well.
I seep through cracks. I inundate.
I level forests kindleth unto a single burning bush.
My hand moves the Universe by the mind of a child.
I withhold treasures solid from the secret stores
to they who would wrench at nothing.
I do not sleep or eat, feel not fatigue, nor hunger.
I do not feel the cold, nor rain or wind.
I transcend the heat of the summer's day.
#Quote by Douglas M. Laurent
Cracks quotes by Ranata Suzuki
#137. Your heart is a mosaic of everyone you have ever loved. It's cracks are not flaws…
They are what holds you together. #Quote by Ranata Suzuki
Cracks quotes by Margo Lanagan
#138. You are pure-hearted, Branza, and lovely, and you have never done a moment's wrong. But you are a living creature, born to make a real life, however it cracks your heart. However sweet that other place was, it was not real. It was an artifact of your mam's imagination; it was a dream of hers and a desire; you could not have stayed there forever and called yourself alive. Now you are in the true world, and a great deal more is required of you. Here you must befriend real wolves, and lure real birds down from the sky. Here you must endure real people around you, and we are not uniformly kind; we are damaged and impulsive, each in our own way. It is harder. It is not safe. But it is what you were born to. (357) #Quote by Margo Lanagan
Cracks quotes by Al Gore
#139. Tobacco addiction sinks its claws in deeply, it's just as powerful of [sic] an addiction as heroin or crack cocaine ... #Quote by Al Gore

Cracks quotes by Atul Gawande
#141. In the horrible places, the battle for control escalates until you get tied down or locked into your Geri-chair or chemically subdued with psychotropic medications. In the nice ones, a staff member cracks a joke, wags an affectionate finger, and takes your brownie stash away. In almost none does anyone sit down with you and try to figure out what living a life really means to you under the circumstances, let alone help you make a home where that life becomes possible. This is the consequence of a society that faces the final phase of the human life cycle by trying not to think about it. We end up with institutions that address any number of societal goals - from freeing up hospital beds to taking burdens off families' hands to coping with poverty among the elderly - but never the goal that matters to the people who reside in them: how to make life worth living when we're weak and frail and can't fend for ourselves anymore. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Cracks quotes by Nina Lane
#142. So pretty with her long hair and bright eyes. And so pure and damaged at the same time, like a priceless vase threaded with cracks. #Quote by Nina Lane
Cracks quotes by Van Morrison
#143. If I ventured in the slipstream between the viaducts of your dreams, where immobile steel rims crack and the ditch in the back roads stop. Could you find me? #Quote by Van Morrison
Cracks quotes by John Lydon
#144. If my leg falls off, I'll get a prosthetic. There'd be no deep sadness about. I'd just get on with it! It's called life, and I love life. You have to be positive, and you have to crack on no matter what. #Quote by John Lydon
Cracks quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#145. Mahler was a poor yea-sayer. His voice cracks, like Nietzsche's, when he proclaims values, speaks from mere conviction, when he himself puts into practice the abhorrent notion of overcoming on which the thematic analyses capitalise, and makes music as if joy were already in the world. His vainly jubilant movements unmask jubilation; his subjective incapacity for the happy end denounces itself. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Cracks quotes by Paulo Coelho
#146. But love is much like a dam; if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current. #Quote by Paulo Coelho

Cracks quotes by Amy A. Bartol
#155. Okay, so when is the mother ship coming to pick us up?" I ask worriedly. "The what?" Reed asks with confusion clouding his eyes. "The mother ship, you know, aliens?" I ask tensely. He gives me an impatient look. "Aliens?" he scoffs. "We're not aliens then?" I reply, not even trying to keep the relief out of my voice. "No!" he says emphatically as he searches my face - probably for other signs of mental illness. Sighing, I ask, "Then what are we, Reed? Because seriously, if some big alien bug cracks me open from the inside and starts wiggling out, I'm going to be really ticked off that you didn't warn me. #Quote by Amy A. Bartol
Cracks quotes by Chaim Weizmann
#156. We are one people despite the ostensible rifts, cracks, and differences between the American and Soviet democracies. We are one people and it is not in our interests that the West should liberate the East, for in doing this and in liberating the enslaved nations, the West would inevitably deprive Jewry of the Eastern half of its world power. #Quote by Chaim Weizmann
Cracks quotes by Groucho Marx
#157. Celebrate the cracks, because that's how the light comes in. #Quote by Groucho Marx
Cracks quotes by Anthony Marra
#158. The idea that fiction can capture the stories that fall through the cracks of history informed 'A Constellation of Vital Phenomena,' which progresses across the two Chechen Wars of the 1990s and early 2000s. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Cracks quotes by Nick Cannon
#159. I'd love to do a film with Mariah. But it would have to be a comedy. She's the funniest woman in the world, she just cracks me up all the time. #Quote by Nick Cannon
Cracks quotes by Laozi
#160. When life begins we are tender and weak When life ends we are stiff and rigid All things, including the grass and trees, are soft and pliable in life and dry in brittle in death So the soft and supple are the companion of life While the stiff and unyielding are the companions of death An army that cannot yield will be defeated A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind Thus by Nature's own decree the hard and strong are defeated while the soft and gentle are triumphant #Quote by Laozi
Cracks quotes by Abraham Kuyper
#161. The holy art of "giving for Jesus' sake" ought to be much more strongly developed among us Christians. Never forget that all state relief for the poor is a blot on the honor of your savior. The fact that the government needs a safety net to catch those who would slip between the cracks of our economic system is evidence that I have failed to do God's work. The government cannot take the place of Christian charity. A loving embrace isn't given with food stamps. The care of a community isn't provided with government housing. The face of our Creator can't be seen on a welfare voucher. What the poor need is not another government program; what they need is for Christians like me to honor our savior. #Quote by Abraham Kuyper
Cracks quotes by Kelly Moran
#162. I look at you and my heart pounds, when for years, I don't think it beat at all. You fill the cracks and crevices, take away the emptiness. And when you're not by my side, the loss is unimaginable. #Quote by Kelly Moran
Cracks quotes by Dennis Lehane
#163. The mind ... It's an engine essentially. That's what it is. A very delicate, intricate motor. And it's got all these pieces, all these gears and bolts and hinges. And we don't even know what half of them do. But if just one gear slips, just one ... Have you thought about that?
It's just like a car. No different. One gear slips, one bolt cracks, and the whole system goes haywire. Can you live knowing that?" He tapped his temple. "That it's all trapped in here and you can't get to it and you don't really control it. But it controls you, doesn't it? And if it decides one day that it doesn't feel like coming to work?" He leaned forward and they could see tendons straining in his neck. "Well, then you're pretty much good and fucked, aren't you? #Quote by Dennis Lehane

Cracks quotes by Jay McLean
#166. What do you want?"
He looks up now, his eyes locked on mine. "You, Ava. I want you. On your good days and your bad days - especially your bad days. I want you to let me in. I want you to come to me and look at me the way you're looking at me now, and know that I'm all in. I just want you." His voice cracks. "God, Ava. I want you so fucking bad, it's killing me. #Quote by Jay McLean

Everyone looks so conservative, but once you crack the first joke, they are so appreciatively loud that they will hit you with a laugh that will scare you stiff and yet give you energy. Chennaiites give me the loudest laughs; it's the coolest crowd to perform for. #Quote by Vir Das
Cracks quotes by L.A. Meyer
#169. I can smell the smoke now. I can see tendrils of it comin' up between the cracks in the shrikin' floorboards. There she is, calmly taking down the framed examples of fine embroideries, samplers, and needlework from teh hallway wall and tucking them under her arm.
"Mistress! Come on! You've got to leave!"
She calmly turns and faces me. "Why?" she asks. "The British are coming?"
"Only one, Mistress," I say #Quote by L.A. Meyer
Cracks quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#170. There's a crack (or cracks) in everyone ... that's how the light of God gets in. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Cracks quotes by George Saunders
#171. I hold the biscuits in front of his face and he stands up.
"What do I have to do?" he says.
"Nothing," I say. "They're for you."
"Are they poisoned?" he says.
"No," I say.
"Eat one," he says.
So I do.
"Probably the others are poisoned," he says. "Eat a fraction of each."
I eat a corner off each biscuit. He looks at the reminders suspiciously, then sniffs them.
"I'm not sure it's worth it," he says. "How I wish you'd never come. Perhaps you've left the poison off of just those corners."
I begin to realize I'll doubt whatever information he gives me.
"Lick the entire biscuit," he says. "Then give them to me."
So I lick each biscuit.
"Both sides," he says.
I lick both sides of each biscuit. I give him the wet biscuits and he cracks them open and sniffs them. Then he puts them in his pocket.
"What do you want?" he says. "Now that you've failed to poison me to death. #Quote by George Saunders
Cracks quotes by Danilo Kis
#172. The flickering shadows dissolve the outlines of things and break up the surfaces of the cube, the walls and ceiling move to and fro to the rhythm of the jagged flame, which by turns flares up and dies down as though about to go out. The yellow clay at the bottom of the cube rises like the floorboards of a sinking boat, then falls back into the darkness, as though flooded with muddy water. The whole room trembles, expands, contracts, moves a few centimeters to the right or left, up or down, all the while keeping its cubical shape. Horizontals and verticals intersect at several points, all in vague confusion, but governed by some higher law, maintaining an equilibrium that prevents the walls from collapsing and the ceiling from tilting or falling. This equilibrium is due no doubt to the regular movement of the crossbeams, for they, too, seem to glide from right to left, up and down, along with their shadows, without friction or effort, as lightly as over water. The waves of the night dash against the sides of the roomboat. Gusts of wind blow soft flakes and sharp icy crystals by turns against the windowpane. The square, embrasure-like window is stuffed with a disemboweled pillow; bits of cloth stick out and dangle like amorphous plants or creepers. It is hard to say whether they are trembling under the impact of the wind blowing through the cracks, or whether it is only their shadow that sways to the rhythm of the jagged flame. #Quote by Danilo Kis
Cracks quotes by Dax Shepard
#173. There's like a shift in the paradigm about every 15 years in movies because one would slip through the cracks. I think if they were more inexpensive you would see many more eclectic comedies being made. #Quote by Dax Shepard
Cracks quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#174. There are eighteen-million cracks in the ceiling. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Cracks quotes by Kate O'Grady
#175. We all have a trigger build into our head... Not aware of its existence whatsoever. But a single word can pull the trigger. Forcing us to feel numb, allowing the shadows to sip through the cracks in our build up shell. #Quote by Kate O'Grady
Cracks quotes by R.S. Grey
#176. Sometimes I got so lost in the cynical side of life that remembering to feel extremely freaking lucky about certain things just slipped through the cracks. #Quote by R.S. Grey
Cracks quotes by John Green
#177. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. #Quote by John Green
Cracks quotes by May Sarton
#178. We saw the strong trees struggle and their plumes do down, The poplar bend and whip back till it split to fall, The elm tear up at the root and topple like a crown, The pine crack at the base - we had to watch them all. The ash, the lovely cedar. We had to watch them fall. They went so softly under the loud flails of air, Before that fury they went down like feathers, With all the hundred springs that flowered in their hair, and all the years, endured in all the weathers - To fall as if they were nothing, as if they were feathers. #Quote by May Sarton
Cracks quotes by Harlan Coben
#179. Every relationship has fissures and cracks. That doesn't mean it's meaningless or bad or even wrong. We know that everything in our lives is complex and gray. Yet we somehow expect our relationships to never be anything but simple and pure. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Cracks quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#180. If you ever want to know how functional Canada's criminal justice system is, just know this: we released Vince Li, a man who stabbed, killed and ate body parts of a total stranger on a Greyhound bus, after only a few brief years, because he was deemed mentally ill. We have Karla Homolka, a woman convicted of aiding in the murders and rapes of multiple girls, including her own sister - Karla now volunteers at a public school around minor children. We also have Ashley Smith, a mentally ill and troubled minor child, arrested for throwing crab apples at somebody in what was more or less a stupid joke. Ashley Smith choked herself to death in prison after relentless isolation, torment and abuse. Canada is kind of tragically funny in this way - monsters walk among us on the streets, while kids have their childhoods eaten away by cracks in the system. Not a uniquely Canadian problem, but still a big problem. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Cracks quotes by Sarah Pinborough
#181. Growing up is about realising the cracks in the pavement are nothing to worry about. It's the cracks inside that count. #Quote by Sarah Pinborough
Cracks quotes by Tina Fey
#182. Will Ferrell is a dangerous man. If he thinks you're in his way in show business, he will crack your head open. He's the Jeff Gillooly of comedy. #Quote by Tina Fey
Cracks quotes by David Weber
#183. I can't say for certain. I can paper over the cracks for a while, maybe even maintain a facade of affluence, by robbing Peter to pay Paul #Quote by David Weber
Cracks quotes by Rachel Vincent
#184. Eastlake High makes Buffy's hellmouth look like a crack in the sidewalk. #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Cracks quotes by Rebecca Wells
#185. I try to believe," she said, "that God doesn't give you more than one little piece of the story at once. You know, the story of your life. Otherwise your heart would crack wider than you could handle. He only cracks it enough so you can still walk, like someone wearing a cast. But you've still got a crack running up your side, big enough for a sapling to grow out of. Only no one sees it. Nobody sees it. Everybody thinks you're one whole piece, and so they treat you maybe not so gentle as they could see that crack. #Quote by Rebecca Wells
Cracks quotes by Tupac Shakur
#186. The people made me from the littlest crack head to the biggest baller so if i am bad its because of the bay and if i am good its because of the bay #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Cracks quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#187. If we would accept heaven's life, we need by all means to live in the world and to participate in its duties and affairs. In this way, we accept a spiritual life by means of our moral and civic life; and there is no other way a spiritual life can be formed within us, no other way our spirits can be prepared for heaven. This is because living an inner life and not an outer life at the same time is like living in a house that has no foundation, that gradually either settles or develops gaping cracks or totters until it collapses. #Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg
Cracks quotes by Bruce Willis
#188. Too many children in foster care are falling through cracks. Be a hero, take the time learn about adoption today. #Quote by Bruce Willis
Cracks quotes by Andrew Flintoff
#189. A lot of the lads have a bat for the nets, a bat for facing the bowling machine and a separate bat for the match. I'll just crack on with a bat until it breaks - then crack on with another one. #Quote by Andrew Flintoff
Cracks quotes by Hope Edelman
#190. Rachel Resnick's story of love lost and love sought cracks open the timeworn addiction narrative to release something raw, probing, brave, and redemptive. The courage it took to write this story is challenged only by the courage it must have taken to live it. I sit in awe of such unflinching honesty. LOVE JUNKIE is memoir at its very best. #Quote by Hope Edelman

#191. Beauty can help fill the cracks in people's hearts and comfort their souls." There #Quote by Lesley Kagen
Cracks quotes by Wale
#192. Initially, I felt like my duty was to just keep it positive and be positive and sometimes I crack in that. We're human. I'm imperfect at times and that was just me being imperfect at that one point. #Quote by Wale
Cracks quotes by Grace Willows
#193. The heavy rain dripped off his thick leather hat and sloshed on the dry hard ground. To someone with a soul, it might have been peaceful, pretty, even to watch the drops bounce and form graceful puddles before they disappeared into the cracks in the Earth.

Daniel Marlin merely cursed. He only saw the weather as another delay before they could rescue their brother from jail. He turned the horse back into the copse of trees, hating to admit defeat. #Quote by Grace Willows
Cracks quotes by Charles Bukowski
#194. we were in her big oak
bed
facing south
so much of the rest of the
time
that I memorized
each wrinkle in the
drapes
and especially
all the cracks in the
ceiling.

I used to play games with
her with that ceiling.

"see those cracks up
there?"

"where?"

"look where I'm pointing..."

"o.k."

"now, see those cracks, see the
pattern? it forms and image. do you see
what it is?"

"umm, umm ..."

"go on, what is it?"

"I know! It's a man on top of a woman!"

"wrong. it's a flamingo standing
by a stream."

. . .

we finally got free of
one another.
it's sad but it's
standard operating procedure
(I am constantly confused by
the lack of durability in human
affairs).

I suppose the parting was
unhappy
maybe even ugly.
it's been 3 or 4
years now
and I wonder if she
ever thinks of
me, of what I am doing? #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Cracks quotes by Raneem Kayyali
#195. Thou doth not know the tragedy of a tale between two hearts till the tears of a forgotten love dissolve into the scars of yearning and seep through the cracks of the broken, leaving behind a trail of crimson for all but one to see. #Quote by Raneem Kayyali
Cracks quotes by Denise Levertov
#196. It's when we face for a moment the worst our kind can do, and shudder to know the taint in our own selves, that awe cracks the mind's shell and enters the heart. #Quote by Denise Levertov
Cracks quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#197. Along the rough cobbled streets that had served so well in surprise attacks and buccaneer landings, weeds hung from the balconies and opened cracks in the whitewashed walls of even the best-kept mansions, and the only signs of life at two o'clock in the afternoon were languid piano exercises played in the dim light of siesta. Indoors, in the cool bedrooms saturated with incense, women protected themselves from the sun as if it were a shameful infection, and even at early Mass they hid their faces in their mantillas. Their love affairs were slow and difficult and were often disturbed by sinister omens, and life seemed interminable. At nightfall, at the oppressive moment of transition, a storm of carnivorous mosquitoes rose out of the swamps, and a tender breath of human shit, warm and sad, stirred the certainty of death in the depths of one's soul. And #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Cracks quotes by Ruby Dixon
#198. I do not wish you to be in danger, pretty Kate. You should leave me."

"Quit saying that - "

"It grows dark soon - "

"Are there predators on the ice?"

He shifts - or tries to - and winces. "No. Not at night. Too many dangerous cracks in the ice."

"You mean, the animals are too smart to cross, but we did it? Are you fucking serious?"

"It was safe until you pushed me."

I bite back my hysterical response, because okay, I did push him. It's not solving anything to bicker right now. I'll murder him when we're both nice and safe. #Quote by Ruby Dixon
Cracks quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#199. because what if one day i slip? what if one day i fall through the cracks and no one is willing to pull me back? What happens to me then? #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Cracks quotes by Ruth Reichl
#200. The thing I like most in my kitchen is my marble counters. Everybody said not to use marble because it's fragile, it stains, it cracks, and it doesn't remain beautiful. But I love marble. #Quote by Ruth Reichl
