Kokkotas Air quotes by Gregory Maguire
#1. The fatal day rarely announces itself, but comes disguised as midsummer. Our private lives are like a colony of worlds expanding, contracting, breathing universal air into separate knowledges. Or like several packs of cards shuffled together by an expert anonymous hand, and dealt out in a random, amused or even hostile way. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Kokkotas Air quotes by George Oppen
#2. Ultimately the air
Is bare sunlight where must be found
The lyric valuable. #Quote by George Oppen
Kokkotas Air quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#3. Bells Screamed all off key, wrangling together as they collided in midair, horns and whistles mingled shrilly with cries of human distress; sulphur-colored light ex-ploded through the black windowpane and flashed away in darkness. Miranda waking from a dreamless sleep asked without expecting an answer, "What is happening?" for there was a bustle of voices and footsteps in the corridor, and a sharpness in the air; the far clamour went on, a furious exasperated shrieking like a mob in revolt.

The light came on, and Miss Tanner said in a furry voice, "Hear that? They're celebrating . It's the Armistice. The war is over, my dear." Her hands trembled. She rattled a spoon in a cup, stopped to listen, held the cup out to Miranda. From the ward for old bedridden women down the hall floated a ragged chorus of cracked voices singing, "My country, 'tis of thee…"

Sweet land… oh terrible land of this bitter world where the sound of rejoicing was a clamour of pain, where ragged tuneless old women, sitting up waiting for their evening bowl of cocoa, were singing, "Sweet land of Liberty-"

"Oh, say, can you see?" their hopeless voices were asking next, the hammer strokes of metal tongues drowning them out. "The war is over," said Miss Tanner, her underlap held firmly, her eyes blurred. Miranda said, "Please open the window, please, I smell death in here. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Kokkotas Air quotes by Nora Roberts
#4. You walked in, and the air changed. It gives you an advantage and you're enough of a challenge.

I'm not trying to be a challenge.

It's one of the things that makes you one. #Quote by Nora Roberts

Kokkotas Air quotes by Donna Tartt
#6. I missed her so much I wanted to die: a hard, physical longing, like a craving for air underwater. Lying awake, I tried to recall all my best memories of her - to freeze her in my mind so I wouldn't forget her - but instead of birthdays and happy times I kept remembering things like how a few days before she was killed she'd stopped me halfway out the door to pick a thread off my school jacket. For some reason, it was one of the clearest memories I had of her: her knitted eyebrows, the precise gesture of her reaching out to me, everything. Several times too - drifting uneasily between dreaming and sleep - I sat up suddenly in bed at the sound of her voice speaking clearly in my head, remarks she might conceivably have made at some point but that I didn't actually remember, things like Throw me an apple, would you? and I wonder if this buttons up the front or the back? and This sofa is in a terrible state of disreputableness. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Kokkotas Air quotes by Jennifer Aniston
#7. If I programmed my own TV network, it would air good news! Just positive stories. Heroic stories. Cute puppy dogs doin' stuff. #Quote by Jennifer Aniston
Kokkotas Air quotes by W. H. Auden
#8. Swans in the winter air
A white perfection have #Quote by W. H. Auden
Kokkotas Air quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#9. The rain comes through their thin cotton clothes against their muscles. Alice sweeps back her wet hair. A sudden flinging of sheet lighting and Clara sees Alice subliminal in movement almost rising up into the air, shirt removed, so her body can meet the rain, the rest of her ascent lost to darkness till the next brief flutter of light when they hold a birch tree in their clasped hands, lean back and swing within the rain.
They crawl delirious together in the blackness. There is no moon. There is the moon flower in its small power of accuracy, like a compass, pointing to where the moon is, so they can bay towards its absence. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Kokkotas Air quotes by Ed Bradley
#10. That's when I hit the ground. So in the instant that that round landed and blew me in the air, I had those separate and distinct thoughts. The guy who was standing right next to where I had been standing had a hole in his back I could put my fist into. #Quote by Ed Bradley
Kokkotas Air quotes by Virginia Woolf
#11. The way to rock oneself back into writing is this. First gentle exercise in the air. Second the reading of good literature. It is a mistake to think that literature can be produced from the raw. One must get out of life ... one must become externalised; very, very concentrated, all at one point, not having to draw upon the scattered parts of one's character, living in the brain. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Kokkotas Air quotes by David Walliams
#12. I don't have a fear factor. Well, not much of one. And I'm willing to risk quite a lot - as a comedian, you're always risking a lot. You're risking failure, especially if you're improvising and going on TV shows trying to make comedy out of thin air. That is quite a risky business. #Quote by David Walliams
Kokkotas Air quotes by E.B. White
#13. Wilbur burst into tears. "I dont want to die," he moaned. "I want to stay alive, right here in my comfortable manure pile with all my friends. I want to breathe the beautiful air and lie in the beautiful sun." #Quote by E.B. White
Kokkotas Air quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#14. ... the extraordinary autumn weather that always comes as a surprise, when the sun hangs low and gives more heat than in spring, when everything shines so brightly in the rare clear atmosphere that the eyes smart, when the lungs are strengthened and refreshed by inhaling the aromatic autumn air, when even the nights are warm, and when in those dark warm nights, golden stars startle and delight us continually by falling from the sky. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Kokkotas Air quotes by Laurent Brancowitz
#15. The bands you like and know that are French are always outsiders in the French music industry - Daft Punk, Air. #Quote by Laurent Brancowitz
Kokkotas Air quotes by Bobby Underwood
#16. How do I begin to tell you about Dana and all that she meant to my life? A writer can describe spring in technical terms; the scent of cherry blossoms awakening from their long winter's sleep; the first whiff of honeysuckle in the air; and the bright cool promise of the sun before it turns harsh in summer. Through some gift from God, perhaps he is able to imbue it so vividly for the reader that they can envision spring in all its loveliness. But can he ever truly capture on paper that feeling of spring in his heart? How could he find words to describe the rush of joy his heart feels at discovering life can be beautiful? Could the poetry of his prose ever paint a feeling, or recount his soul's wistfulness that when this moment passes, life will never be as beautiful again? All I can say is that is how I felt the first time I saw her. #Quote by Bobby Underwood
Kokkotas Air quotes by Ron Paul
#17. The most sinister of all taxes is the inflation tax and it is the most regressive. It hits the poor and the middle class. When you destroy a currency by creating money out of thin air to pay the bills, the value of the dollar goes down, and people get hit with a higher cost of living. It's the middle class that's being wiped out. It is most evil of all taxes. #Quote by Ron Paul
Kokkotas Air quotes by Rick Riordan
#18. The coffee shops were doing a brisk business, and street musicians filled the air with the sounds of guitar, lyre, panpipes, and armpit noises. (Percy didn't get that last one. Maybe it was an old Roman musical tradition.) #Quote by Rick Riordan
Kokkotas Air quotes by Sherwood Smith
#19. So they sit like overfed fowl and watch Galdran Merindar break the Covenant by making secret pacts to sell our woods overseas?" I retorted.
He paused in the act of reaching for the camp jug. "Break the Covenant? How do you know about that? I don't recall you've ever been to Court."
Tell him about Azmus, and the intercepted letter, and have him send minions to make certain both disappeared? No chance. "I just know. That's all you need to know. But even if it weren't true, Debegri would still go up to take the County of Tlanth by force. Can't any of you Court people see that if it happens to us, it can happen to you? Or are you too stupid?"
"Possibly," he said, still with that dispassionate amusement. "It's also possible your…somewhat misguided actions are inspired by misguided sources, shall we say?"
"Say what you want," I retorted. "It's not like I can duff off in a huff if you're impolite."
He laughed softly, then shook his head. "I ought not to bait you. I apologize."
The implication seemed pretty clear: Soon enough I'd have a hard time of it. The prospect silenced me.
He didn't seem to notice as he brought out the jug and then poured two mugs of steaming water. A moment later he opened a little bag and brought out dried leaves, which he cast into one mug. Another bag provided leaves for the other mug. The wonderful scent of tea wafted through the air. I did not recognize the blend--or blends. Instinct made me sigh; then I realized I'd d #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Kokkotas Air quotes by Maryrose Wood
#20. Plants make the air! Do you understand what that means? Our food, our air, our very lives come from the plants. How could they not be of divine origin, of divine intelligence? How can we deny that, in some essential way, they are no less than you or I? #Quote by Maryrose Wood
Kokkotas Air quotes by Gary Snyder
#21. Revolutionary consciousness is to be found among the most ruthlessly exploited masses: animals, trees, water, air, grasses #Quote by Gary Snyder
Kokkotas Air quotes by Donna Air
#22. So, how did you all meet? #Quote by Donna Air
Kokkotas Air quotes by Lev Grossman
#23. He had an air of magnificent melancholy sophistication, as if his proper place were elsewhere, somewhere infinitely more compelling even than Brakebills, and he'd been confined to his present setting by a grotesque divine oversight, which he tolerated with as much good humor as could be expected. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Kokkotas Air quotes by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
#24. How marvellously lie our anxieties, in filmy layers, one over the other! Take away that which has lain on the upper surface for so long - the care of cares - the only one, as it seemed to you, between your soul and the radiance of Heaven - and straight you find a new stratum there. As physical science tells us no fluid is without its skin, so does it seem with this fine medium of the soul, and these successive films of care that form upon its surface on mere contact with the upper air and light. #Quote by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
Kokkotas Air quotes by Brad Goreski
#25. Being a celebrity stylist, there are many tricks of the trade that I use in my house and with my clients. #Quote by Brad Goreski
Kokkotas Air quotes by Paloma Picasso
#26. Personal style is not something that is just in the air. It is something you have and that you apply to yourself. #Quote by Paloma Picasso
Kokkotas Air quotes by Diyar Harraz
#27. You know, when you talked about good days and bad days, do you think right now counts as the good days?"
"It depends. How do you feel right now?"
Rania closed her eyes when she said, "I feel strange. I haven't felt like this for a long time."
Zaheed took a deep breath. "How so?"
She shrugged. "Perhaps, it's because I'm in a whole new place, where I haven't set my foot before; the air smelt different and I'm talking to a stranger. It made me feel like I've just had all my memories erased and replaced with new ones. #Quote by Diyar Harraz
Kokkotas Air quotes by William Shakespeare
#28. Have I not reason, beldams as you are,
Saucy and overbold? How did you dare
To trade and traffic with Macbeth
In riddles and affairs of death;
And I, the mistress of your charms,
The close contriver of all harms,
Was never call'd to bear my part,
Or show the glory of our art?
And, which is worse, all you have done
Hath been but for a wayward son,
Spiteful and wrathful, who, as others do,
Loves for his own ends, not for you.
But make amends now: get you gone,
And at the pit of Acheron
Meet me i' the morning: thither he
Will come to know his destiny:
Your vessels and your spells provide,
Your charms and every thing beside.
I am for the air; this night I'll spend
Unto a dismal and a fatal end:
Great business must be wrought ere noon:
Upon the corner of the moon
There hangs a vaporous drop profound;
I'll catch it ere it come to ground:
And that distill'd by magic sleights
Shall raise such artificial sprites
As by the strength of their illusion
Shall draw him on to his confusion:
He shall spurn fate, scorn death, and bear
He hopes 'bove wisdom, grace and fear:
And you all know, security
Is mortals' chiefest enemy.
Music and a song within: 'Come away, come away,' & c
Hark! I am call'd; my little spirit, see,
Sits in a foggy cloud, and stays for me. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Kokkotas Air quotes by Colleen Hoover
#29. I love you, Holder!" I yell after him. "Best friends forever!" He keeps walking forward, but lifts his hand in the air and flips me off. It's almost as cool as a fist bump. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Kokkotas Air quotes by Charles Frazier
#30. Bleak as the scene was, though, there was growing joy in Inman's heart. He was nearing home; he could feel it in the touch of thin air on skin, in his longing to see the lead of hearth smoke from the houses of people he had known all his life. People he would not be called upon to hate or fear. He rose and took a wide stance on the rock and stood and pinched down his eyes to sharpen the view across the vast propect to one far mountain. It stood apart from the sky only as the stroke of a poorly inked pen, a line thin and quick and gestural. But the shape slowly grew plain and unmistakable. It was to Cold Mountain he looked. He had achieved a vista of what for him was homeland. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Kokkotas Air quotes by Suzy Davies
#31. Oh my boy, you are so huggable and snuggable, is that why they call
you Snugs Bear?"
"I've simply always been Snugs," Snugs said, with an unusual, mysterious air, for it was nearly time to go to bed. #Quote by Suzy Davies
Kokkotas Air quotes by Will Darbyshire
#32. You're my moon, my stars, you're my sunrises and sunsets. You're the crisp mountain air, the first layer of snow, and that steady rainfall after a humid day. You're just everything. #Quote by Will Darbyshire
Kokkotas Air quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#33. [E]very plot, worth the name, must be elaborated to its dénouement before anything be attempted with the pen. It is only with the dénouement constantly in view that we can plot its indispensable air of consequence, or causation, by making the incidents, and especially the tone at all points tend to the development of the intention. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Kokkotas Air quotes by Krista Ritchie
#34. He tries to open his mouth for air.
If I could give him mine, I would. #Quote by Krista Ritchie
Kokkotas Air quotes by Julie Mulhern
#35. None of this was part of the plan all the girls I'd grown up with had been given. Not a written plan, unless the book about Cinderella counted. The plan was in the water we drank, the air we breathed. It was poured into the pavement on the streets we called home. Marry a nice man, one who was a good provider, and live happily, or at least comfortably, ever after.

Safe to say I'd followed the plan. I'd married a banker. Had a baby. But the plan had failed me. It left me alone huddled in a window seat with every emotion I'd refused to let myself feel seeping through my pores until the air in my bedroom was heavy with sadness and angst and confusion. (p. 235) #Quote by Julie Mulhern
Kokkotas Air quotes by Karen Engelmann
#36. But there was change in the air, and whether for good or ill, change always quickens the pulse and sharpens the senses. #Quote by Karen Engelmann
Kokkotas Air quotes by Robert Kennedy
#37. If we want to meet the obligations of our civilization and our culture which are to create communities for our children that provide them with the same opportunities for dignity and enrichment as the communities that our parents gave us, we've got to start by protecting that infrastructure; the air that we breathe, the water that we drink, the landscapes that enrich us. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Kokkotas Air quotes by Doris Duke
#38. In my Indian bedroom, the carved, cut-out marble jalis, or screens, which were formerly used by Indian princes to keep their wives from other eyes, have a new purpose: they are not only decorations, but a means of security, for they can be locked without shutting off the air. #Quote by Doris Duke
