Lumbering Away quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#1. The letter had been crumpled up and tossed onto the grate. It had burned all around the edges, so the names at the top and bottom had gone up in smoke. But there was enough of the bold black scrawl to reveal that it had indeed been a love letter. And as Hannah read the singed and half-destroyed parchment, she was forced to turn away to hide the trembling of her hand.

- should warn you that this letter will not be eloquent. However, it will be sincere, especially in light of the fact that you will never read it. I have felt these words like a weight in my chest, until I find myself amazed that a heart can go on beating under such a burden.

I love you. I love you desperately, violently, tenderly, completely. I want you in ways that I know you would find shocking. My love, you don't belong with a man like me. In the past I've done things you wouldn't approve of, and I've done them ten times over. I have led a life of immoderate sin. As it turns out, I'm just as immoderate in love. Worse, in fact.

I want to kiss every soft place of you, make you blush and faint, pleasure you until you weep, and dry every tear with my lips. If you only knew how I crave the taste of you. I want to take you in my hands and mouth and feast on you. I want to drink wine and honey from you.

I want you under me. On your back.

I'm sorry. You deserve more respect than that. But I can't stop thinking of it. Your arms and legs around me. Your mouth #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Lumbering Away quotes by Rollo May
#2. What is important is not what is said, but that some talk be continually going on. Silence is the great crime, for silence is lonely and frightening. One shouldn't feel much, nor put much meaning into what one says: what you say seems to have more effect if you don't try to understand. One has the strange impression that these people are all afraid of something - what is it? It is as if the "yatata" were a primitive tribal ceremony, a witch dance calculated to appease some god. There is a god, or rather a demon, they are trying to appease: it is the specter of loneliness which hovers outside like the fog drifting in from the sea. One will have to meet this specter's leering terror for the first half-hour one is awake in the morning anyway, so let one do everything possible to keep it away now. #Quote by Rollo May
Lumbering Away quotes by Scot Armstrong
#3. Once I was in college, I was actually trying to write a comedy screenplay and I wrote basically the worst movie ever and just threw it away and never showed anybody. Everyone needs to get that first bad screenplay out of your system before you start writing other stuff. #Quote by Scot Armstrong
Lumbering Away quotes by Elizabeth George
#4. Don't give away to others what you have not first given away at home. #Quote by Elizabeth George
Lumbering Away quotes by Publilius Syrus
#5. Deliberando saepe perit occasio [The opportunity often slips away while we deliberate on it]. #Quote by Publilius Syrus
Lumbering Away quotes by Katie J. Davis
#6. We bend. I bend to sweep crumbs and I bend to wipe vomit and I bend to pick up little ones and wipe away tears ... And at the end of these days I bend next to the bed and I ask only that I could bend more, bend lower. Because I serve a Savior who came to be a servant. He lived bent low. And bent down here is where I see His face. He lived, only to die. Could I? Die to self and just break open for love. This Savior, His one purpose to spend Himself on behalf of messy us. Will I spend myself on behalf of those in front of me? And people say, "Don't you get tired?" and yes, I do. But I'm face to face with Jesus in the dirt, and the more I bend the harder and better and fuller this life gets. And sure, we are tired, but oh we are happy. Because bent down low is where we find fullness of Joy. #Quote by Katie J. Davis
Lumbering Away quotes by Liz Curtis Higgs
#7. Our love for people doesn't end when they pass away. More often our feelings deepen as we realize how much they mean to us and how dearly we miss them. #Quote by Liz Curtis Higgs
Lumbering Away quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#8. As he looked round, she too turned her head .Her shining gray eyes, that looked dark from the thick lashes, rested with friendly attention on his face, as though she were recognizing him, and then promptly turned away to the passing crowd, as though seeking someone. In that brief look Vronsky had time to notice the suppressed eagerness which played over her face, and flitted between the brilliant eyes and faint smile that curved her red lips. It was as though her nature were so brimming with something that against her will it showed itself now in the flash of her eyes, and now in her smile. Deliberately she shrouded the light in her eyes, but it shone against her will in that faintly perceptible smile. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Lumbering Away quotes by Bill Bryson
#9. The few surviving photographs of Childe certainly confirm that he was no beauty - he was skinny and chinless, with squinting eyes behind owlish spectacles, and a mustache that looked as if it might at any moment stir to life and crawl away - but whatever unkind things people might say about the outside of his head, the inside was a place of golden splendor. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Lumbering Away quotes by Thomas Hughes
#10. Don't be led away to think this part of the world important and that unimportant. Every corner of the world is important. No man knows whether this part or that is most so, but every man may do some honest work in his own corner. #Quote by Thomas Hughes
Lumbering Away quotes by Tiger Woods
#11. I'd gotten away from my Buddhism. And I quit meditating. #Quote by Tiger Woods
Lumbering Away quotes by Shelly Crane
#12. One day you'll get to fly, Soph, just like Pan and Wendy. Fly away home to a better place where everything is brighter, boys are never lost, and mothers don't ever leave. But right now? Don't mourn me, she #Quote by Shelly Crane
Lumbering Away quotes by Sophocles
#13. He who throws away a friend is as bad as he who throws away his life. #Quote by Sophocles
Lumbering Away quotes by Suzanne Wright
#14. You know," said Makenna, breaking into his thoughts, "I think I'd have a decent shot of surviving a zombie apocalypse. What about you guys?"
And just like that, the tension melted away.
"She does that a lot." Zac chuckled. "Ask weird questions, I mean." He twisted slightly in his seat to reply, "Um ... yeah, I think I could." Then he looked at Ryan. "You?"
Ryan opened and closed his mouth three times. "I don't know how to involve myself in this conversation. #Quote by Suzanne Wright
Lumbering Away quotes by Julie James
#15. Mom," Vaughn said. "I'm sure Sidney doesn't want to be interrogated about her personal life."

Deep down, Sidney knew that Vaughn - who'd obviously deduced that she'd been burned in the past - was only trying to be polite. But that was the problem, she didn't want him to be polite, as if she needed to be shielded from such questions. That wasn't any better than the damn "Poor Sidney" head-tilt.

"It's okay, I don't mind answering." She turned to Kathleen. "I was seeing someone in New York, but that relationship ended shortly before I moved to Chicago."

"So now that you're single again, what kind of man are you looking for? Vaughn?" Kathleen pointed. "Could you pass the creamer?"

He did so, then turned to look once again at Sidney. His lips curved at the corners, the barest hint of a smile. He was daring her, she knew, waiting for her to back away from his mother's questions.

She never had been very good at resisting his dares.

"Actually, I have a list of things I'm looking for." Sidney took a sip of her coffee.

Vaughn raised an eyebrow. "You have a list?"


"Of course you do."

Isabelle looked over, surprised. "You never told me about this."

"What kind of list?" Kathleen asked interestedly.

"It's a test, really," Sidney said. "A list of characteristics that indicate whether a man is ready for a serious relationship. It helps weed out the commit #Quote by Julie James
Lumbering Away quotes by Seth Godin
#16. Given the choice between building a thriving, profitable business with a niche and a really boring product and putting your life savings into an intensely competitive business where youʼre likely to fail but the product is cool, the experienced bootstrapper will pick the former every time. If you find an industry filled with wannabe entrepreneurs with a dollar and a dream, run away and look for something else! #Quote by Seth Godin
Lumbering Away quotes by Peggy Jaeger
#17. I remember being little and wondering if I smoothed this line away would I be able to see inside you, like it was a door or some kind of opening to your insides. Dumb, huh?"
"Sweet," he said, softly. "Little girl sweet. Never dumb."
Her eyes traveled up to his and locked there.
"When I got older I wondered what it would be like to kiss it. #Quote by Peggy Jaeger
Lumbering Away quotes by Mary Oliver
#18. Turned away from the sooty sill and the dark city-
turned away forever
from the factories, the personal strivings,
to a life of the imagination. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Lumbering Away quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#19. No one notices, no one even cares, when I fade away again. I'm a shadow, and no one remembers shadows. #Quote by Victoria Aveyard
Lumbering Away quotes by Steven Spielberg
#20. She wanted to go over and hug his tears away, but she was too frightened. #Quote by Steven Spielberg

Lumbering Away quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#22. Why do you think you deserve happily ever after? You were offered it before and tossed it away. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Lumbering Away quotes by Criss Jami
#23. Imagine a personality so taking that others would pay their last simply to be in its presence. Then of course a number of people go for the polar opposite, too (the one not 'as well'): the one so toxic, others would rather pay their last for it to go away. #Quote by Criss Jami
Lumbering Away quotes by Hasan Minhaj
#24. The movies 'Dope' and 'Straight Outta Compton' blew me away. I love seeing directors and writers of color make amazing slices of pop culture. #Quote by Hasan Minhaj
Lumbering Away quotes by Thomas Merton
#25. Useless
Hui Tzu said to Chuang Tzu:
"All your teaching is centred on what has no use."
Chuang Tzu replied:
"If you have no appreciation for what has no use,
You cannot begin to talk about what can be used.
The earth for example, is broad and vast,
But of all this expanse a man uses only a few inches
Upon which he happens to be standing.
Now suppose you suddenly take away
All that he actually is not using,
So that all around his feet a gulf
Yawns, and he stands in the Void
With nowhere solid except under each foot.
How long will he be able to use what he is using?
Hui Tzu said: "It would cease to serve any purpose."
Chuang Tzu concluded:
"This showsThe absolute necessity
Of what has ' no use. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Lumbering Away quotes by S.C. Langgle
#26. Some things you just couldn't change, or transform, or wish away. Sometimes the path you were on only went one way. Sometimes, the truth wasn't what you wanted to hear. #Quote by S.C. Langgle
Lumbering Away quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#27. I walked away from his offer. From him. I was torn apart by another betrayal - Cal's betrayal, but also mine. I love you is a promise we both made, and we both broke. It should mean I choose you above all else. I want you more. I need you always. I cannot live without you. I will do anything to keep our lives from parting.
But he wouldn't. And I won't. #Quote by Victoria Aveyard
Lumbering Away quotes by Tamara Agha-Jaffar
#28. It happened so quickly. One minute I was plucking the flower, and the next I was in his chariot immersed in darkness. I struggled to wrench myself free from his grasp and run away. I twisted as far as I could, hoping to see mother chasing after me. But ahead of me, behind me, on either side of me, everywhere I looked, all I could see was darkness. #Quote by Tamara Agha-Jaffar
Lumbering Away quotes by Kirsten Miller
#29. I've always found that one of the biggest benefits of being a girl is that most people refuse to take you seriously. While boys must be constantly monitored and are always the first suspects when anything goes wrong, everyone expects girls to do what they're told. It may seem a little insulting at first, but low expectations can be a blessing in disuise. If you're smart, you can use people's foolishness to your own advantage. It's amazing what you can get away with when no one bothers watching. #Quote by Kirsten Miller
Lumbering Away quotes by Robert Wilson
#30. At the end of the 1960s, I was part of the downtown theatrical movement in New York that was making work in alleyways, garages, gyms, churches, non-traditional spaces. The idea was to get away from the illusion of the conventional theatre. But then I thought, what's wrong with illusion? #Quote by Robert Wilson
Lumbering Away quotes by Richard Peck
#31. Stay away from people who don't know who they are but want you to be just like them. People who'll want to label you. People who'll try to write their fears on your face. #Quote by Richard Peck
Lumbering Away quotes by Russell Edson
#32. Perhaps I should kiss the face of the kitchen clock for luck. Perhaps its little hands with rapture would encircle my neck and we might be happy. I am sure happiness is not too far away #Quote by Russell Edson
Lumbering Away quotes by Holly Black
#33. Holly is the bestselling author and co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles series and won a Newbery Honor for her novel Doll Bones. Cassie is the author of bestselling YA series, including The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. They both live in Western Massachusetts, about ten minutes away from each other. #Quote by Holly Black
Lumbering Away quotes by Brittany L. Engels
#34. Maybe it's not about being worthy, or what you have to offer. If it was, wouldn't everyone be turned away?" -Niall #Quote by Brittany L. Engels
Lumbering Away quotes by Alice Munro
#35. Juliet knew that, to many people, she might seem to be odd and solitary - and so, in a way, she was. But she had also had the experience, for much of her life, of feeling surrounded by people who wanted to drain away her attention and her time and her soul. And usually, she let them. Be available, be friendly (especially if you are not popular) - that was what you learned in a small town and also in a girls' dormitory. Be accommodating to anybody who wants to suck you dry, even if they know nothing about who you are. She looked straight at this man and did not smile. He saw her resolve, there was a twitch of alarm in his face. #Quote by Alice Munro
Lumbering Away quotes by Laura Resnick
#36. Poor Superman is about a married man who, much to his own surprise, enters into a passionate love affair - with another man. The experimental theatre which hosted the play here is a small place, and we happened to wind up sitting in the front row. Practically on the stage. The actors were often within a few feet of us. So, during the big love scene, when the two male leads start passionately stroking and kissing each other's stark naked bodies... and doing this so close to me that I could have touched them both with only a little effort... I sat there in mute panic, thinking, "Please don't either of you fellows get an erection. Just don't. Should I look away? Should I close my eyes? Should I just keep watching as if I'm not obsessing about your genitals? Aren't you done kissing and touching yet? Because if this goes on any longer, one of you could have an involuntary reaction, if you get my drift! And I am a total stranger sitting within four damn feet of you, in case you hadn't NOTICED!"
Though my seat wasn't as dark as usual, the writing lesson was very memorable: Don't ever pull your reader out of the frame.
Bad research. Anachronistic writing. Self-serving polemics and lectures barely disguised as narrative. Incongruity and lack of continuity. Weak characterization, leaden pacing, lack of motivation, stiff dialogue, lazy plotting... There are a thousand ways for novelist to wind up naked onstage while an appalled audience obsesses about her exposed genitals at a #Quote by Laura Resnick
Lumbering Away quotes by Courtney Love
#37. My daughter is an angel on earth, so when I see her it all goes away. I see her and - phew! - all that dark goes away pretty much. #Quote by Courtney Love
Lumbering Away quotes by Milton Friedman
#38. Italy may well be the main problem. It has benefited most from the euro by having been able to get the euro interest rate instead of what otherwise would have been its own. That would be much higher because Italy has been accumulating so much debt. In the past, Italy has inflated away its debt. The virtue of the euro is that Italy can't do it alone. A tight ECB policy wouldn't permit that to happen again. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Lumbering Away quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#39. here was no great personal tragedy to shake my foundations, no injustice or betrayal to justify my falling away- just a few pesky questions that unraveled my faith like twine and left me standing here unable to sing a song I know by heart, chilled by a shadow no one else can see. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Lumbering Away quotes by Harry Styles
#40. Swallow you fears, wipe off your tears, let go of you darkest years. Chin up. Smile. Walk away #Quote by Harry Styles
Lumbering Away quotes by Alan Bean
#41. I feel like there's too many paintings left unpainted that I just don't want to take the time away. #Quote by Alan Bean
Lumbering Away quotes by Albert Camus
#42. That is love, to give away everything, to sacrifice everything, without the slightest desire to get anything in return.3 #Quote by Albert Camus
Lumbering Away quotes by Archimedes
#43. Fellow, stand away from my diagram. #Quote by Archimedes
Lumbering Away quotes by Naomi Alderman
#44. Tunde tries to imagine what it'd be like to have one. A power you can't give away or trade. He feels himself yearning for it, repulsed by it. He reads online forums where men say that if all the men in the world had one everything would be back to the way it ought to be. They're angry and afraid. He understands that. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Lumbering Away quotes by James Cameron
#45. The snake kills by squeezing very slowly. This is how the civilized world slowly, slowly pushes into the forest and takes away the world that used to be. #Quote by James Cameron
Lumbering Away quotes by Erin Watt
#46. Steve's downstairs. He showed up at the door just as Reed was taken away."
"Steve," Easton echoes, slightly dazed. "Uncle Steve?"
Sebastian makes a croaky sound. "Dead Uncle Steve? #Quote by Erin Watt
Lumbering Away quotes by Kurt Sutter
#47. I'm a storyteller ... I haves a God-given gift that I can share with you and perhaps entertain you and bring you along for the ride ... So when anybody tries to take that away from me, or impede that, I get defensive. #Quote by Kurt Sutter
Lumbering Away quotes by Ronald Knox
#48. The motor-car, in brining us all closer together, by making it easy to have luncheon two counties away, has driven us all further apart, by making it unnecessary for us to know the people in the next bungalow. And so, once again, we have to thank civilization for nothing. #Quote by Ronald Knox
