Desert Mirage quotes by Elle Kennedy
#1. The house smells like an Italian restaurant when I walk through the door. I turn to Logan, who shoots me a WTF look, and I shrug as if to say fuck if I know, because I honestly don't know. I bend down to unlace my scuffed black boots, then follow the mouthwatering aroma to the kitchen. When I reach the doorway, I blink like I've just stumbled upon a desert mirage.

Hannah's sexy ass greets my eyes. She's angled over the oven door, wearing Tuck's pink oven mitts as she pulls a steaming pan of lasagna off the middle shelf. At the sound of my footsteps, she glances over her shoulder and smiles. "Oh, hey. Perfect timing. #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Desert Mirage quotes by Richard Engel
#2. Ethnically, Tuareg describe themselves as white. And they don't look Arab or black. Many Tuareg have light skin, light eyes and sharp angular noses and cheekbones. They are cousins of the Berbers of North Africa. Some legends say the Tuareg are the decedents of an ancient Roman legion that disappeared into the desert two millennia ago. #Quote by Richard Engel
Desert Mirage quotes by Edmund Spenser
#3. Vain-glorious man, when fluttering wind does blow
In his light wing's, is lifted up to sky;
The scorn of-knighthood and true chivalry.
To think, without desert of gentle deed
And noble worth, to be advanced high,
Such praise is shame, but honour, virtue's meed,
Doth bear the fairest flower in honourable seed. #Quote by Edmund Spenser
Desert Mirage quotes by Morton Hunt
#4. Being a good psychoanalyst, in short, has the same disadvantage as being a good parent: The children desert one as they grow up. #Quote by Morton Hunt
Desert Mirage quotes by Zane Grey
#5. With that they, and many others, left the hall and joined the moving crowd in the street. The night was delightfully cool. Stars shone white in a velvet sky. The dry wind from mountain and desert blew in their faces. Pan #Quote by Zane Grey
Desert Mirage quotes by Miller Williams
#6. For something to be useful to the spirit is not very valuable to get your covered wagon across the desert. We have adopted that attitude so thoroughly that any American father whose son tells him he wants to write poetry will be embarrassed. #Quote by Miller Williams
Desert Mirage quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#7. To a person who expects every desert to be barren sand dunes, the Sonoran must come as a surprise. Not only are there no dunes, there's no sand. At least not the sort of sand you find at the beach. The ground does have a sandy color to it, or gray, but your feet won't sink in. It's hard, as if it's been tamped. And pebbly. And glinting with
what else
mica. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Desert Mirage quotes by Rosita Forbes
#8. It is true there is a scent in the desert, though there may be no flower or tree or blade of grass within miles. It is the essence of the untrodden, untarnished earth herself! #Quote by Rosita Forbes
Desert Mirage quotes by Derrick Jensen
#9. Forests precede us and deserts dog our heels. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Desert Mirage quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#10. The heat of the incinerator wrapped around Inej like a living thing, a desert dragon in his den, hiding from the ice, waiting for her. She knew her body's limits, and she knew she had no more to give. She'd made a bad wager. It was as simple as that. The autumn leaf might cling to its branch, but it was already dead. The only question was when it would fall. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Desert Mirage quotes by Jovan Autonomašević
#11. Organised religion is the heroin of the masses. The unforgiving singularity of the desert allows for no deviance. #Quote by Jovan Autonomašević
Desert Mirage quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#12. Only resilient flowers flourish in the desert. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Desert Mirage quotes by T.L. Morganfield

Desert Mirage quotes by T.E. Lawrence
#14. Off the white town hung between the blazing sky and its reflection in the mirage that swept and rolled over the wide lagoon, then the heat of Arabia came to like a drawn sword and smote us speechless. #Quote by T.E. Lawrence
Desert Mirage quotes by Khalil Gibran
#15. Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country? If you are the first, then you are a parasite; if the second, then you are an oasis in the desert. #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Desert Mirage quotes by Stewart O'Nan
#16. She had a vision of the two of them trapped on a tiny raft surrounded by miles of open water. It would be a kind of test, like surviving on a desert island
but that's what a marriage was, wasn't it? They would have to help each other or die. #Quote by Stewart O'Nan
Desert Mirage quotes by Andrew Marvell
#17. And yonder all before us lie Deserts of vast eternity. #Quote by Andrew Marvell
Desert Mirage quotes by Tony Horwitz
#18. The first thing you notice, coming to Israel from the Arab world, is that you have left the most courteous region of the globe and entered the rudest. The difference is so profound that you're left wondering when the mutation in Semitic blood occurred, as though God parted the Red Sea and said: Okay, you rude ones, keep wandering toward the Promised Land. The rest of you can stay here and rot in the desert, saying 'welcome, most welcome' and drowning each other in tea until the end of time. #Quote by Tony Horwitz
Desert Mirage quotes by Bruce Dickinson
#19. You can sail in the desert with a ship of fools. You can smuggle in Moses and his book of rules. But you can't take a mother and give her back her son. What kind of freedom is bought with a gun? People like to build their prison walls when they're afraid to look inside ... a thousand points of light are the muzzle flashes in the night. And the freedoms you profess to hold won't bring the dead back from the cold. #Quote by Bruce Dickinson
Desert Mirage quotes by Paulo Coelho
#20. A woman of the desert knows that she must await her man. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Desert Mirage quotes by George MacDonald
#21. There are souls innumerable in the world, as dry as the Sahara desert - souls which, when they look most gay and summer-like, are only flaunting the flowers gathered from other people's gardens, stuck without roots into their own unproducing soil. Oh, the dreariness, the sandy sadness of such poor arid souls! They are hungry, and eat husks; they are thirsty, and drink hot wine; their sleep is a stupor, and their life, if not an unrest, then a yielded decay. Only when praised or admired do they feel as if they lived! But Joan was not yet of such. She had had too much discomfort to have entered yet into their number. There was water not yet far from the surface of her consciousness. #Quote by George MacDonald
Desert Mirage quotes by Roberto Bolano
#22. The diseased, anyway, are more interesting than the healthy. The words of the diseased, even those who can manage only a murmur, carry more weight than those of the healthy. Then, too, all healthy people will in the future know disease. That sense of time, ah, the diseased man's sense of time, what treasure hidden in a desert cave. Then, too the diseased truly bite, whereas the healthy pretend to bite but really only snap at the air. Then, too, then, too, then, too. #Quote by Roberto Bolano
Desert Mirage quotes by Louis L'Amour
#23. You can't fight the desert ... you have to ride with it. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Desert Mirage quotes by Wolfgang Puck
#24. If you're cooking for a woman, make a good risotto and a salad. If you don't have time to make desert you can go and buy some macaroons to have afterwards. #Quote by Wolfgang Puck
Desert Mirage quotes by C.S. Lewis
#25. To get even near humility, even for a moment, is like a drink of cold water to a man in a desert. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Desert Mirage quotes by John Fante
#26. Please God, please Knut Hamsun, don't desert me now. I started to write and I wrote:
The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes - and ships - and sealing-wax
Of cabbages - and kings - #Quote by John Fante
Desert Mirage quotes by T.E. Lawrence
#27. The common base of all the Semitic creeds, winners or losers, was the ever present idea of world-worthlessness. Their profound reaction from matter led them to preach bareness, renunciation, poverty; and the atmosphere of this invention stifled the minds of the desert pitilessly. #Quote by T.E. Lawrence
Desert Mirage quotes by Sigmund Freud
#28. Scientific knowledge has taught [humans] much since the days of the Deluge, and it will increase their power still further. And, as for the great necessities of Fate, against which there is no help, they will learn to endure them with resignation. Of what use to them is the mirage of wide acres in the moon, whose harvest no one has ever yet seen? As honest smallholders on this earth they will know how to cultivate their plot in such a way that it supports them. By withdrawing their expectations from the other world and concentrating all their liberated energies into their life on earth, they will probably succeed in achieving a state of things in which life will become tolerable for everyone and civilization no longer oppressive to anyone. Then, with one of our fellow-unbelievers, they will be able to say without regret: 'We leave Heaven to the angels and the sparrows. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Desert Mirage quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#29. As Oliver and Freddy pulled away from the Blue Swan, Oliver paid little heed to the lad's chatter about his spectacular meal. All he could hear was Maria calling him my lord, as if she hadn't just been trembling in his arms.
And the look on her face! Had she been insulted? Or just ashamed? How the devil had she stayed so collected, when he'd felt ready to explode after seeing her find her pleasure so sweetly in his arms? He'd actually come in his trousers, like a randy lad with no control over his urges. Now he had to keep his cloak buttoned up until he could reach Halstead Hall and change his clothes.
She'd made light of their encounter, damn her. Though I thank you for the lesson in passion…Had it meant nothing more to her? Apparently not, since she'd said, It isn't something we should repeat.
Though the idea grated, she was right. They should stay apart, for his sake as well as hers. He'd actually offered to make her his mistress! He, who'd never kept a mistress in his life, who'd joked to his friends that mistresses were more trouble than they were worth since one woman was as good as another.
He'd always been driven by the fear that a mistress might tempt him to let down his guard and reveal his secrets. Then even his family would desert him, and he couldn't bear that.
Even with his friends, he kept the strongbox of his secrets firmly closed. But with Maria…
He stared out the window, trying to figure out at what point in their conversation h #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Desert Mirage quotes by Aron Ralston
#30. Desert dawn Rise up early, lift your song On the breath of life that rises from the Glowing stone Feel the rock of ages, smooth against your skin Smell the breath of flowers dancing on the wind Dancing on the Wind #Quote by Aron Ralston
Desert Mirage quotes by Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio
#31. I thought that to get to know a desert it was enough to have been there. I thought that to have seen the dogs dying along the Cholula road, or to have seen the eyes of the lepers at Chiengmai gave me the right to talk about it. To have seen! To have been there! Rubbish! The world is not a book, it proves nothing. The spaces one has crossed were dark corridors with closed doors. The faces of the women to whom one gave oneself up completely: did they speak for anyone but themselves? The cities of man are secret. One walks along their streets, one sees them shine under one's feet, but one is not there, one never enters them. The dusty fields inhabited by people who are hungry, who wait patiently, are paradises of luxury and nourishment; shining at a vast distance from intelligence, at a vast distance from reason. They are not to be subjugated. #Quote by Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio
Desert Mirage quotes by Paulo Coelho
#32. He felt the urge to go into the desert, to see if it's silence held the answers to his questions. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Desert Mirage quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#33. If you choose not to live self-responsibly, you count on others to make up your default. No one abjures self-responsibility on a desert island. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Desert Mirage quotes by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
#34. The Cat
The cat licks its paw and lies down in the bookshelf nook. She can lie in a sphinx position without moving for so many hours and then turn her head to me and rise and stretch and turn her back to me and lick her paw again as if no time had passed. It hasn't and she is the sphinx with all the time in the world in the desert of her time the cat knows where flies die wees ghosts in the motes of air and shadows in sunbeams. She hears the music of the spheres and the hum in the wires of houses and the hum of the universe in interstellar spaces but prefers domestic places and the hum of the heater. #Quote by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Desert Mirage quotes by Elizabeth Peters
#35. Bucolic peace is not my ambience, and the giving of tea parties is by no means my favorite amusement. In fact, I would prefer to be pursued across the desert by a band of savage Dervishes brandishing spears and howling for my blood. I would rather be chased up a tree by a mad dog, or face a mummy risen from its grave. I would rather be threatened by knives, pistols, poisonous snakes, and the curse of a long-dead king. Lest I be accused of exaggeration, ... Emerson once remarked that if I should encounter a band of Dervishes, five minutes of my nagging would unquestionably inspire even the mildest of them to massacre me ... #Quote by Elizabeth Peters
Desert Mirage quotes by S.W. Southwick
#36. Want me to say it? Want me to confess what makes me an actual felon and reserves me a choice spot in hell?"

"Please, Alexandria Patra," Preton said, "tell me all your regrets."

Her eyes narrowed. "I taught children to surrender their developing minds to concepts like the greater good or the good of society which can't exist in any form in this world without actual kids being trampled underneath their untouchable banners."

Pointing at her own chest, she added, "I taught children that in order to live up to those 'higher' ideals they must be obedient - to others, must sacrifice their dreams - to the needs of others. I taught them it was more important to be a part of a group than to stand on their own judgment. I told the non-conforming kids they should feel guilty for wanting to live on their own terms."

Alexa swept a hand forward, pointing it at Preton. "I then delivered every ego-stripped, dream-crushed child to the power mongers of the world like you, who will use this universally accepted mirage of morality to control them. #Quote by S.W. Southwick
Desert Mirage quotes by Brian Friel
#37. ...It drifts in from somewhere far away - a mirage of sound - a dream music that is both heard and imagined; that seems to be both itself and its own echo; a sound so alluring and so mesmeric that the afternoon is bewitched, maybe haunted, by it. And, what is so strange about that memory is that everybody seems to be floating on those sweet sounds , moving rhythmically, languorously, in complete isolation; responding more to the mood of the music than to its beat. When I remember it, I think of it as dancing. Dancing with eyes half closed because to open them would break the spell. Dancing as if language had surrendered to movement - as if this ritual, this wordless ceremony, was now the way to speak, to whisper private and sacred things, to be in touch with some otherness. dancing as if the very heart of life and all its hopes might be found in those assuaging notes and those hushed rhythms and in those silent and hypnotic movements. Dancing as if language no longer existed because words were no longer necessary... #Quote by Brian Friel
