Loreley Statue quotes by Ronald Reagan
#1. Directly down the lawn and accross the Ellipse from the White House are those ordered, classic lines of the Jefferson Memorial and the eyes of the 19-foot statue that gaze directly into the White House, a reminder to any of us who might occupy that mansion of the quality of mind and generosity of heart that once abided there and has been so rarely seen there again. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Loreley Statue quotes by Carol Ann Duffy
#2. Cold, I was, like snow, like ivory.
I thought "He will not touch me",
but he did.

He kissed my stone-cool lips.
I lay still
as though I'd died.
He stayed.
He thumbed my marbled eyes.

He spoke -
blunt endearments, what he'd do and how.
His words were terrible.
My ears were sculpture,
stone-deaf shells.
I heard the sea.
I drowned him out.
I heard him shout.

He brought me presents, polished pebbles,
little bells.
I didn't blink,
was dumb.
He brought me pearls and necklaces and rings.
He called them girly things.
He ran his clammy hands along my limbs.
I didn't shrink,
played statue, shtum.

He let his fingers sink into my flesh,
he squeezed, he pressed.
I would not bruise.
He looked for marks,
for purple hearts,
for inky stars, for smudgy clues.
His nails were claws.
I showed no scratch, no scrape, no scar.
He propped me up on pillows,
jawed all night.
My heart was ice, was glass.
His voice was gravel, hoarse.
He talked white black.

So I changed tack,
grew warm, like candle wax,
kissed back,
was soft, was pliable,
began to moan,
got hot, got wild,
arched, coiled, writhed,
begged for his child,
and at the climax
screamed my head off -
all an act.

And haven't seen him since.
Simple as that #Quote by Carol Ann Duffy
Loreley Statue quotes by Nizar Qabbani
#3. tell me even though lies soft words
it was about to kill me with you that statue

i still in the art of love a baby
between us seas and mountains

you still can't understand
that all men are babies

so if i stood before your love quietly
then quietness in the love is love

our words in love are killing our love
and letters are dying after they're said

love stories may drive you crazy
cause its all full of fantasies

love is not a story,my dear
where the stars marry each other by the end

its to get hot blooded for anything silly
it's our misery, it's our killing doubting

it's this hand that assassin us
and we accept that hand that assassin #Quote by Nizar Qabbani
Loreley Statue quotes by James Patterson
#4. Then the sun broke through for good and shone down on the giant white statue of Jesus that looked over virtually all of Rio from the summit of Corcovado Mountain. In the prior two months, I'd seen the statue from dozens of vantage points, but never like this, from a police helicopter hovering at the figure's eye level two hundred and fifty feet away, close enough for me to understand the immensity of the statue and its simple, graceful lines. I am a lapsed Catholic, but I tell you, I got chills up and down my spine. "That's incredible," I said as the helicopter #Quote by James Patterson
Loreley Statue quotes by Mario Alberto Zambrano
#5. And we just sat there, like a statue of two girls trying to do the right thing. #Quote by Mario Alberto Zambrano
Loreley Statue quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#6. Michelangelo was asked by the pope about the secret of his genius, particularly how he carved the statue of David, largely considered the masterpiece of all masterpieces. His answer was: "It's simple. I just remove everything that is not David. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Loreley Statue quotes by Mary Roach
#7. It's possible that the reason I've never experienced a ghostly presence is that my temporal lobes aren't wired for it. It could well be that the main difference between skeptics (Susan Blackmore notwithstanding) and believers is the neural structure they were born with. But the question still remains: Are these people whose EMF-influenced brains alert them to "presences" picking up something real that the rest of us can't pick up, or are they hallucinating? Here again, we must end with the Big Shrug, a statue of which is being erected on the lawn outside my office. #Quote by Mary Roach
Loreley Statue quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#8. Do you know how the naturalist learns all the secrets of the forest, of plants, of birds, of beasts, of reptiles, of fishes, of the rivers and the sea? When he goes into the woods the birds fly before him and he finds none; when he goes to the river bank, the fish and the reptile swim away and leave him alone. His secret is patience; he sits down, and sits still; he is a statue; he is a log. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Loreley Statue quotes by Virginia Woolf
#9. Her soliloquy crystallized itself into little fragmentary phrases emerging suddenly from the turbulence of her thought, particularly when she had to exert herself in any way, either to move, to count money, or to choose a turning. "To know the truth
to accept without bitterness"
those, perhaps, were the most articulate of her utterances, for no one could have made head or tail of the queer gibberish murmured in front of the statue of Francis, Duke of Bedford ... #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Loreley Statue quotes by Eileen Cook
#10. Mr. Winston and I had already discussed:
How what I'd done was vile and on par with kicking disabled kittens.
That I was on the path to becoming a criminal and likely would spend the rest of my life in jail giving myself homemade tattoos with a needle and Bic pen.
That the statue was a work of art, and would I dare to ear the arm off the Mona Lisa? He didn't think so.
That I was a disappointment to him, my family, my boyfriend, my fellow students, and likely all of Western civilization. #Quote by Eileen Cook
Loreley Statue quotes by Ricky Gervais
#11. It breaks your heart when you throw something away, but it's what left that counts. It's like worrying about the bits of rock you have knocked off in order to make a beautiful statue. You've wasted half the rock, yeah, but it's the Venus di Milo! #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Loreley Statue quotes by Rick Riordan
#12. Percy?" Annabeth gripped his arm.
"Oh, bad," he muttered. "Bad. Bad." He looked across the table at Frank and Hazel. "You guys remember Polybotes?"
"The giant who invaded Camp Jupiter," Hazel said. "The anti-Poseidon you whacked in the head with a Terminus statue. Yes, I think I remember #Quote by Rick Riordan
Loreley Statue quotes by Suzanne Collins
#13. A light was on in the kitchen. His mother sat at the kitchen table, as still as a statue. Her hands were clasped together, and she stared fixatedly at a small stain on the tablecloth. Gregor remembered seeing her that way so many nights after his dad had disappeared. He didn't know what to say. He didn't want to scare her or shock her or ever give her any more pain.
So, he stepped into the light of the kitchen and said the one thing he knew she wanted to hear most in the world.
Hey, Mom. We're home. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Loreley Statue quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#14. You can touch me. You care and I don't know why. You're kind to me and you don't have to be. My own mother didn't care enough to - t-to - " My voice catches and I press my lips together. Glue them shut. Force myself to be still.

I am a rock. A statue. A movement frozen in time. Ice feels nothing at all. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Loreley Statue quotes by Roustam Tariko
#15. I launched Imperia at the Statue of Liberty because I wanted to use something symbolic. I like American society because it always wants to do something new and better. #Quote by Roustam Tariko
Loreley Statue quotes by Jarod Kintz
#16. My love is like the collision between a falling statue and still bird poop. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Loreley Statue quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#17. Pygmalion formed an ivory maid, and longed for an informing soul. She, on the contrary, combined all the qualities of a hero's mind, and fate presented a statue in which she might enshrine them. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Loreley Statue quotes by Sabrynne McLain
#18. Kate was about to protest when something caused her to look in her mother's direction. She was standing statue-like in front of the television with that brave, painted-on smile. Then Kate realized what had caught her attention: her mother's tear-filled eyes were reflecting the on-off motion of the blinkers like a watery mirror. Kate stared transfixed at the flashing points of light that betrayed her mother's pain. The urge to tell her father how much she wanted him to be proud of her and how much he had hurt her, faded in the dark depths of her mother's eyes. #Quote by Sabrynne McLain
Loreley Statue quotes by Nicole Jacquelyn
#19. She was as beautiful as the Madonna statue they kept in the church. Her beauty went so much deeper than her face or body; it was a manifestation of her innocence, the sweetness she showed everyone, the steadfast loyalty that she gave to others even though it had never been given to her. #Quote by Nicole Jacquelyn
Loreley Statue quotes by Seth Godin
#20. No one has ever built a statue to a critic, it's true. On the other hand, it's only the people with statues that get pooped on by birds flying by. #Quote by Seth Godin
Loreley Statue quotes by Erin Morgenstern
#21. This womens skin is shimmering and pale, her long black hair is tied with dozens of silver ribbons that fall over her shoulders. Her gown is white, covered in what to Bailey looks like looping black embroidery, but as he walks closer he sees that the black marks are actually words written across the fabric. When he is near enough to read parts of the gown, he realizes that they are love letters, inscribed in handwritten text. Words of desire and longing wrapping around her waist, flowing down the train of her gown as it spills over the platform.
The statue herself is still, but her hand is held out and only then does Bailey notice the young woman with a red scarf standing in front of her, offering the love letter-clad statue a sungle crimson rose.
The movement is so subtle that it is almost undetectable, but slowly, very, very slowly, the statue reaches to accept the rose.
Her fingers open, and the young woman with the rose waits patiently as the statue gradually closes her hand around the stem, releasing it only when it is secure.
....The statue is lifting the rose, gradually, to her face. Her eye lids slowly close. #Quote by Erin Morgenstern
Loreley Statue quotes by Anthony Burgess
#22. A work of art is somehow organic, and to slash a painting or smash a statue is not just an offence against property: it is an offence against life. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Loreley Statue quotes by Bryan Litfin
#23. The author sees Luke's loyalty to the apostle Paul "depicted architecturally in the great church at Rome known as St. Paul Outside the Walls. There, a statue of Luke holding a writing stylus commemorates not only his work as a Gospel author but his faithfulness to Paul. #Quote by Bryan Litfin
Loreley Statue quotes by Simon Hoggart
#24. Reagan was a flesh and blood version of any other mute national emblem, say the Statue of Liberty. Everyone knows what she represents, but no one would dream of asking her opinion. #Quote by Simon Hoggart
Loreley Statue quotes by Rachel Ingalls
#25. I bitterly resent all that wasted time. And what I resent most of all is that the ones I did get never, never looked like the Greek statues."
"The Greek-statue types may have been too busy going out with other boys to notice you. #Quote by Rachel Ingalls
Loreley Statue quotes by Hope Mirrlees
#26. A class struggling to assert itself, to discover its true shape, which lies hidden, as does the statue in the marble, in the hard, resisting material of life itself, be different from the same class when chisel and mallet have been laid aside, and it has actually become what it had so long been struggling to be. #Quote by Hope Mirrlees
Loreley Statue quotes by Leonard Peikoff
#27. Ayn Rand held that art is a 're-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgements.' By its nature, therefore, a novel (like a statue or a symphony) does not require or tolerate an explanatory preface; it is a self-contained universe, aloof from commentary, beckoning the reader to enter, perceive, respond. #Quote by Leonard Peikoff
Loreley Statue quotes by M T Anderson
#28. Jasper pointed out, "We've passed that statue seven times in the last hour."
"Very popular," said Bntno. "Who don't like that statue?"
"We're going in circles," said Jasper.
"Not circles," said Bntno. "Irregular polygons."
"Oh, come on!" complained Katie.
"No," said Jasper ruefully, "he's right. Maybe a trapezoid. #Quote by M T Anderson
Loreley Statue quotes by Federico Garcia Lorca
#29. I sing your restless longing for the statue, your fear of the feelings that await you in the street. I sing the small sea siren who sings to you, riding her bicycle of corals and conches. But above all I sing a common thought that joins us in the dark and golden hours. The light that blinds our eyes is not art. Rather it is love, friendship, crossed swords. #Quote by Federico Garcia Lorca
Loreley Statue quotes by Debbie Harry
#30. The word 'iconic' is used too frequently - an icon is a statue carved in wood. It was shocking at first, when I got that reference. It was a responsibility, and it's impossible to live up to - you're supposed to be dead, for one thing. #Quote by Debbie Harry
Loreley Statue quotes by George W. Bush
#31. For most of the world, there's no greater symbol of America than the Statue of Liberty. It has been an inspiration to generations of immigrants. One of these immigrants was a poet-writer named Ameen Rihani. Gazing at her lamp held high, he wondered whether her sister might be erected in the lands of his Arab forefathers. Here is how he put it: "When will you turn your face toward the East, oh Liberty?" #Quote by George W. Bush
Loreley Statue quotes by W. H. Auden
#32. A dead man who never caused others to die seldom rates a statue. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Loreley Statue quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#33. Lysandra flapped onto the top of a nearby statue and clicked her beak rather saucily. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Loreley Statue quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#34. Certain I am that every author who has written a book with earnest forethought and fondly cherished designs will bear testimony to the fact that much which he meant to convey has never been guessed at in any review of his work; and many a delicate beauty of thought, on which he principally valued himself, remains, like the statue of Isis, an image of truth from which no hand lifts the veil. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Loreley Statue quotes by Danielle O'Hara
#35. Wasn't Winston Churchill the first black president of America? There's a statue of him near me ... that's black ... #Quote by Danielle O'Hara
Loreley Statue quotes by Jesse Ball
#36. A statue in the center of a town: sometimes is a god, and other times, it is something upon which to hang laundry. #Quote by Jesse Ball
Loreley Statue quotes by Neal Shusterman
#37. It can be said, then, that Everlost is heaven ... for the places that deserve a share of forever.
Such places are few and far between ... The greatest of these stood near Manhattan's southern-most tip: the two gray brothers to the green statue in the bay. The towers had found their heaven ... held fast, and held forever by the memories of a mourning world, and by the dignity of the souls who got where they were going on that dark September day. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Loreley Statue quotes by Teju Cole
#38. From where I stood, the Statue of Liberty was a flourescent green fleck against the sky, and beyond her sat Ellis Island, the focus of so many myths; but it had been built too late for those early Africans - who weren't immigrants in any case - and it had been closed too soon to mean anything to the later Africans like Kenneth, or the cabdriver, or me. #Quote by Teju Cole
Loreley Statue quotes by Victor Hugo
#39. Dear God! how beauty varies in nature and art. In a woman the flesh must be like marble; in a statue the marble must be like flesh. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Loreley Statue quotes by Louis Markos
#40. salvation is less like a good man becoming a saintly man than it is like a statue coming to life. #Quote by Louis Markos
Loreley Statue quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#41. You revere me: but what if your reverence should some day collapse? Be careful lest a statue fall and kill you! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Loreley Statue quotes by Michelangelo Buonarroti
#42. As when, O lady mine,
With chiselled touch
The stone unhewn and cold
Becomes a living mould,
The more the marble wastes,
The more the statue grows. #Quote by Michelangelo Buonarroti
Loreley Statue quotes by Arthur Tappan Pierson
#43. A marble cutter, with chisel and hammer, was changing a stone into a statue. A preacher looking on said: "I wish I could deal such changing blows on stony hearts." The workman answered: "Maybe you could, if you worked like me, upon your knees." #Quote by Arthur Tappan Pierson
Loreley Statue quotes by Christina Daley
#44. You are organic, aren't you? Or am I talking to a statue again? #Quote by Christina Daley
