Jarheads Accident quotes by Yvonne Woon
#1. Why do we bury our dead?" His nose was dented in at the bridge like a sphinx; the cause of which I could only imagine had been a freak archaeological accident.
I thought about my parents. They had requested in their will that they be buried side by side in a tiny cemetery a few miles from our house. "Because it's respectful?"
He shook his head. "That's true, but that's not the reason we do it."
But that was the reason we buried people, wasn't it? After gazing at him in confusion, I raised my hand, determined to get the right answer. "Because leaving people out in the open is unsanitary."
Mr. B. shook his head and scratched the stubble on his neck.
I glared at him, annoyed at his ignorance and certain that my responses were correct. "Because it's the best way to dispose of a body?"
Mr. B. laughed. "Oh, but that's not true. Think of all the creative ways mass murderers have dealt with body disposal. Surely eating someone would be more practical than the coffin, the ceremony, the tombstone."
Eleanor grimaced at the morbid image, and the mention of mass murderers seemed to wake the rest of the class up. Still, no one had an answer. I'd heard Mr. B. was a quack, but this was just insulting. How dare he presume that I didn't know what burials meant? I'd watched them bury my parents, hadn't I? "Because that's just what we do," I blurted out. "We bury people when they die. Why does there have to be a reason for everything?"
"Exactly!" Mr. B. gr #Quote by Yvonne Woon
Jarheads Accident quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#2. It was a lovely autumn day with a blue sky: I made my way through a lead-coloured world, and I realized that my mother's accident was affecting me far more than I had thought it would. I could not really see why. It had wrenched her out of the framework, the role, the set of images in which I had imprisoned her: I recognized her in this patient in bed, but I did not recognize either the pity or the kind of disturbance that she aroused in me. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Jarheads Accident quotes by Jack London
#3. And all the while the four men lay beside me and watched and made no move. Nor did I move, and without shame I say it; though my reason was compelled to struggle hard against my natural impulse to rise up and interfere. I knew life. Of what use to the woman, or to me, would be my being beaten to death by five men there on the bank of the Susquehanna? I once saw a man hanged, and though my whole soul cried protest, my mouth cried not. Had it cried, I should most likely have had my skull crushed by the butt of a revolver, for it was the law that the man should hang. And here, in this gypsy group, it was the law that the woman should be whipped.

Even so, the reason in both cases that I did not interfere was not that it was the law, but that the law was stronger than I. Had it not been for those four men beside me in the grass, right gladly would I have waded into the man with the whip. And, barring the accident of the landing on me with a knife or a club in the hands of some of the various women of the camp, I am confident that I should have beaten him into a mess. But the four men were beside me in the grass. They made their law stronger than I. #Quote by Jack London
Jarheads Accident quotes by Jennifer McMahon
#4. I've lived here ... my whole life. It's where I lost all my baby teeth. Where tiny hamster, gerbil, and bird skeletons lie in rotted-out cardboard coffins beneath the oak tree in our backyard. Also where, if some future archaeologist goes digging, they'll find the remains of a plush toy: a gray terrier named Toto I buried after the accident. #Quote by Jennifer McMahon
Jarheads Accident quotes by Alice Hoffman
#5. You rescue something and you're responsible for it. But maybe that's what love is. Maybe it's like a hit-and-run accident; it smashes you before you can think. You do it no matter the cost and you keep on running #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Jarheads Accident quotes by Loretta Chase
#6. You did… that… on purpose," she said, fighting for breath.
„Assuredly. You could not think I kissed you by accident. #Quote by Loretta Chase
Jarheads Accident quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#7. Prince Andrei listened attentively to Bagration's colloquies with the commanding officers and the orders he gave them, and to his surprise found that no orders were really given but that Prince Bagration tried to make it appear that everything done by necessity, by accident, or by the will of subordinate commanders, was done, if not by his direct command at least in accord with his intentions. Prince Andrei noticed however that though what happened was due to chance and was independent of the commander's will, owing to the tact Bagration showed, his presence was very valuable.

Jarheads Accident quotes by Charles Dickens
#8. We must leave the discovery of this mystery, like all others, to time, and accident, and Heaven's pleasure. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Jarheads Accident quotes by Brittany Cavallaro
#9. I've got to find Holmes."
"I guess that means you haven't heard. Oh, Jamie, I didn't want to be the one to tell you. But there's been an accident. A horrible, horrible accident. #Quote by Brittany Cavallaro
Jarheads Accident quotes by Sierra DeMulder
#10. I loved you head over handles
like my first bicycle accident
before the mouthful of gravel and blood,
I swore we were flying.

Jarheads Accident quotes by James Redfield
#11. Because, again, very often your attitude about why an accident or illness has happened has an effect on your recuperation. #Quote by James Redfield

Jarheads Accident quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#13. It is no accident that stock exchange floors - in addition to bedroom floors - bring out the noisy blood, the flushed cheek, and the passionate cries of men. Most men are making love when they make 'magical' amounts of money. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Jarheads Accident quotes by M.R. Carey
#14. Parks waits a long while, until he's absolutely certain that Justineau's monologue is finished. The truth is, for most of the time he's been trying to figure out what it is exactly that she's trying to tell him. Maybe he was right the first time about where they were heading, and Justineau airing her ancient laundry is just a sort of palate-cleanser before they have sex. Probably not, but you never know. In any case, the countermove to a confession is an absolution, unless you think the sin is unforgivable. Parks doesn't.

"It was an accident," he tells her, pointing out the obvious. "And probably you would have ended up doing the right thing. You don't strike me as the sort of person who just lets shit slide." He means that, as far as it goes. One of the things he likes about Justineau is her seriousness. He frigging flat-out hates frivolous, thoughtless people who dance across the surface of the world without looking down.

"Yeah, but you don't get it," Justineau says. "Why do you think I'm telling you all this?"

"I don't know," Parks admits. "Why are you telling me?"

Justineau steps away from the parapet wall and squares off against him – range, zero metres. It could be erotic, but somehow it's not.

"I killed that boy, Parks. If you turn my life into an equation, the number that comes out is minus one. That's my lifetime score, you understand me? And you … you and Caldwell, and Private Ginger f**king Rogers … my God, whe #Quote by M.R. Carey
Jarheads Accident quotes by Joshua Harris
#15. Purity doesn't happen by accident; it requires obedience to God. #Quote by Joshua Harris
Jarheads Accident quotes by Kresley Cole
#16. While she was enjoying this heady control, she decided to test a few minor spells on the werewolf - because it would be good practice, and by good practice she meant amusing for her.
She caused a root to hike up directly in front of his feet. When he tripped, she folded her lips in, biting back a laugh.
Magick . . . good.
For the next hour, whenever his boots came untied just in time for the laces to collect bullet ants, or limbs whacked him across the face, or he scarcely dodged bird and monkey droppings, he always regarded her with narrow-eyed suspicion. She would casually glance over at him with a "Whaaa . . . ?" expression.
But he hadn't said anything, and as for her, well, she could do this all day -
Out of the corner of her eye she spied movement. What looked like a vine suddenly uncoiled from the ground and came flying toward her. With a shriek, she attempted a pulse of energy to ward it off. But MacRieve had already snatched the snake; her magick caught him and sent him flying, his body crashing through the brush, felling the trees in his way.
After landing one hundred feet away and angrily tossing the snake, he shot to his feet, charging back to her, eyes ice blue with fury. "Goddamn it, witch, no' again!"
"It was an accident!" the witch cried, and she might have been truthful, but Bowe was beyond caring.
"All morning you've toyed with me, have you no'?" He stalked closer to her, letting her see a good glimpse of the beast wi #Quote by Kresley Cole
Jarheads Accident quotes by Celia Rivenbark
#17. If you buy an SUV, you're buying your safety at the expense of someone else's." ... If you're driving a Hyundai, which basically runs on air and tofu, and you get in an accident with an SUV, are you going to say, "Well, at least I have the courage of my convictions?" Hell, no. You're going to say: "Soon's I get outta this hospital bed and find my legs, I'm gonna get me a Suburban. Loaded. #Quote by Celia Rivenbark
Jarheads Accident quotes by N.D. Wilson
#18. Three postcards await our perusal, yea, three visions of a world.
One: I see a theme park where there are lots of rides, but there is nobody who can control them and nobody who knows how the rides end. Grief counseling, however, is included in the price of admission.
Two: I see an accident. An explosion of some kind inhabited by happenstantial life forms. A milk spill gone bacterial, only with more flame. It has no meaning or purpose or master. It simply is.
Three: I see a stage, a world where every scene is crafted. Where men act out their lives within a tapestry, where meaning and beauty exist, where right and wrong are more than imagined constructs. There is evil. There is darkness. There is the Winter of tragedy, every life ending, churned back into the soil. But the tragedy leads to Spring. The story does not end in frozen death. The fields are sown in grief. The harvest will be reaped in joy. I see a Master's painting. I listen to a Master's prose. When darkness falls on me, when I stand on my corner of the stage and hear my cue, when I know my final scene has come and I must exit, I will go into the ground like corn, waiting for the Son. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Jarheads Accident quotes by Ernest Becker
#19. Socially, too, we have seen a defiant Promethianism that is basically innocuous: the confident power that can catapult man to the moon and free him somewhat of his complete dependence and confinement on earth-at least in his imagination. The ugly side of this Promethianism is that it, too, is thoughtless, an empty-headed immersion in the delights of technics with not thought to goals or meaning; so man performs on the moon by hitting golf balls that do not swerve in the lack of atmosphere. The technical triumph of a versatile ape, as the makers of the film 2001 so chillingly conveyed to us. On more ominous levels, as we shall develop later on, modern man's defiance of accident, evil, and death takes the form of sky-rocketing production of consumer and military goods. Carried to its demonic extreme this defiance gave us Hitler and Vietnam: a rage against our impotence, a defiance of our animal condition, our pathetic creature limitations. If we don't have the omnipotence of gods, we at least can destroy like gods. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Jarheads Accident quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#20. Tony had spent a great deal of time dwelling on whoever this poor Disney hostess must have been, not as a casualty but as a person. She never got to be an adult, he'd told himself in horror. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Jarheads Accident quotes by Maya Angelou
#21. To make a difference is not a matter of accident, a matter of casual occurrence of the tides. People choose to make a difference. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Jarheads Accident quotes by Christopher Moore
#22. Sorry. Accident. Couldn't be helped. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Jarheads Accident quotes by Al Hirschfeld
#23. You know, it's no accident that the great painters came from areas like Europe where there is a lot of clouds and rain, which begets color and subtle washes of tone. Most great graphic artists come from areas with prevalent sun, where line and shadow are paramount. #Quote by Al Hirschfeld
Jarheads Accident quotes by Denis McDonough
#24. In my case, I played sports my whole life. I got out of college, and I didn't bother to get health care coverage because I just figured I didn't need it. But you know that if you blow out your knee on a basketball court or you get in a car accident, and you're uninsured, it can bankrupt you. #Quote by Denis McDonough
Jarheads Accident quotes by Judith Lothian
#25. You are not an accident.
Even at the moment of your conception,
out of many possibilities,
only certain cells combined,
survived, grew to be you.
You are unique, created for a purpose.
Go confidently into the days ahead. #Quote by Judith Lothian
Jarheads Accident quotes by Anonymous
#26. Science proclaims that Planet Earth and its inhabitants are a meaningless speck in the grand scheme. A cosmic accident." He paused. "Even the technology that promises to unite us, divides us. Each of us is now electronically connected to the globe, and yet we feel utterly alone. We are bombarded with violence, division, fracture, and betrayal. Skepticism has become a virtue. Cynicism and demand for proof has become enlightened thought. Is it any wonder that humans now feel more depressed and defeated than they have at any point in human history? Does science hold anything sacred? Science looks for answers by probing our unborn fetuses. Science even presumes to rearrange our own DNA. It shatters God's world into smaller and smaller pieces in quest of meaning ... and all it finds is more questions. #Quote by Anonymous
Jarheads Accident quotes by Ernest K. Gann
#27. My mind held fast to that hot morning and the moment of coolness in the cabin. I could so easily re-enact every moment. Again-why had I gone back to exchange the beautiful charts at that precise moment? How many times would I, in whatever innocence, be compelled to choose the right time? #Quote by Ernest K. Gann
Jarheads Accident quotes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
#28. Ouch!' The cry escaped before I could stop it, and on either side of me, Chase and Devon leapt to their feet.
'Problem?' Ali asked mildly, amusement dancing in the corners of her eyes. Given the whole Casey thing, I didn't think she had to call to be in such a good mood, but what did I know?
'No problem,' I said darkly, rubbing my shin 'Somebody just accidentally kicked me under the table.' I narrowed my eyes at lake, and she helped herself to another T-bone And smothered it in stake sauce.
'Wasn't an accident' She said cheerfully.
'Lake' Mitch didn't say any more than his daughters name and she rolled her eyes.
'It's not like I shot her'. #Quote by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Jarheads Accident quotes by Adrian Bejan
#29. Serendipity is the way to make discoveries, by accident but also by sagacity, of things one is not in quest of. Based on experience, knowledge, it is the creative exploitation of the unforeseen. #Quote by Adrian Bejan
Jarheads Accident quotes by Natalie Babbitt
#30. Pretty' doesn't mean 'good,' you know, Geneva. Real life isn't like fairy tales. 'Pretty' simply means that by accident you've got things arranged on your outside in an extra-pleasing manner. It doesn't tell a thing about your inside. #Quote by Natalie Babbitt
Jarheads Accident quotes by Leo Lionni
#31. In our everyday garden grow the rosemary, juniper, ferns and plane trees, perfectly tangible and visible. For these plants that have an illusory relationship with us, which in no way alters their existentiality, we are merely an event, an accident, and our presence, which seems so solid, laden with gravity, is to them no more than a momentary void in motion through the air. Reality is a quality that belongs to them, and we can exercise no rights over it. #Quote by Leo Lionni
Jarheads Accident quotes by Michael Lewis
#32. By accident, some traders had stumbled across a route controlled by Verizon that took 14.65 milliseconds. "The Gold Route," the traders called it, because on the occasions you happened to find yourself on it you were the first to exploit the discrepancies between prices in Chicago and prices in New York. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Jarheads Accident quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#33. It's not by accident that the pristine wilderness of our planet disappears as the understanding of our own inner wild nature fades. #Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

#34. I spit on you by accident #Quote by Yuan Hung-Tao
