Mama Day quotes by C.S. Lewis
#1. They had expected to see the grey, heathery slope of the moor going up and up to join the dull autumn sky. Instead, a blaze of sunshine met them. It poured through the doorway as the light of a June day pours into a garage when you open the door. It made the drops of water on the grass glitter like beads and showed up the dirtiness of Jill's tear-stained face. And the sunlight was coming from what certainly did look like a different world- what they could see it. They saw smooth turf, smoother and brighter than Jill had ever seen before, and blue sky and, darting to and fro, things so bright that they might have been jewels or huge butterflies. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Mama Day quotes by Thomas Harris
#2. Mischa, we take comfort in knowing there is no God. That you are not enslaved in Heaven, made to kiss God's ass forever. What you have is better than Paradise. You have blessed oblivion. I miss you every day. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Mama Day quotes by Cesare Pavese
#3. You will be loved the day when you will be able to show your weakness without the other person using it to assert his strength. #Quote by Cesare Pavese
Mama Day quotes by Joan Didion
#4. I need you to write something down, he said. It was, he said, for his new book, not for mine, a point he stressed because I was at the time researching a book that involved sports ... When I gave him the note the next day he said "You can use it if you want to."
What did he mean?
Did he know he would not write the book?
Did he have some apprehension, a shadow? Why had he forgotten to bring note cards to dinner that night? Had he not warned me that the ability to make a note when something came to mind was the difference between being able to write and not being to write? #Quote by Joan Didion
Mama Day quotes by Sylvia Day
#5. You're looking at it the wrong way." His grip tightens. "You're broken. I'm broken. We don't throw the pieces away. We fit them together until they make something new #Quote by Sylvia Day
Mama Day quotes by Leslie Bibb
#6. I like day dates. On night dates, you just go somewhere and start drinking. But if you really want to see if a girl is worth your time, go to a museum or for coffee. #Quote by Leslie Bibb
Mama Day quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#7. Or maybe just apologize, Barrons, for being too young to have my priorities refined, like you, because I haven't suffered whatever the hell it is you suffered, and then shove you up against a wall and kiss you until you can't breathe, do what I wanted to do the first day I saw you there in your bloody damned bookstore. Disturb you like you disturbed me, make you see me, make you want me--pink me! - shatter your self-control, bring you crashing to your knees in front of me, even though I told myself I'd never want a man like you, that you were too old, too carnal, more animal than man, with one foot in the swamp and no desire to come all the way out, when the truth was that I was terrified by what you made me feel. It wasn't what guys make girls feel, dreams of a future with babies and picket fences, but frantic, hard, raw loss of self, like you can't live without that man inside you, around you, with you all the time, and it only matters what he thinks of you, the rest of the world can go to hell, and even then I knew you could change me! #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Mama Day quotes by Shelby Pontius
#8. A good book is a book you want to read all in one day but to last forever #Quote by Shelby Pontius

#9. Just as a good rain clears the air, a good writing day clears the psyche. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Mama Day quotes by Carrie Ann Inaba
#10. My grandmother used to cook for eight every day - sitting down lunches and dinner, the way you do it in Italy, you sit down. And when my parents could afford their own place, I went with them but still my mother used to work but used to come back from work to cook lunch for my father, come back from work, cook dinner for my father and me. #Quote by Carrie Ann Inaba
Mama Day quotes by Terry Pratchett
#11. Quezovercoatl squirmed. The King swiveled the throne back and forth a bit. "Now, I want you to go straight back down there and tell them you're sorry," he said. "Pardon?" "Tell them you've changed your mind. Tell them that what you really wanted them to do was strive day and night to improve the lot of their fellow men. It'll be a winner. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Mama Day quotes by Kirsty Logan
#12. The day after I met Grace – her pierced little mouth, her shitkicker boots, her hands as small as goosebumps writing numbers on my palm. The day after I met her, I went to the heart rental place. #Quote by Kirsty Logan
Mama Day quotes by Gregory Maguire
#13. 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
Mama Day quotes by Sabaa Tahir
#14. When Hel and I were Fivers, a Barbarian raiding party took us prisoner. I was trussed like a festival-day goat, but they tied Helene's hands in front of her with twine and propped her on the back of a pony, assuming she was harmless. That night, she used the twine to garrote three of our jailers and broke the necks of the other three with her bare hands.
"They always underestimate me," she said afterward, sounding puzzled. #Quote by Sabaa Tahir
Mama Day quotes by Royal Robbins
#15. When it's been a long day of climbing, and I feel like I can't go any farther, I concentrate on the next three feet. And then the next three feet; and then the next three feet. Pretty soon, I'm at the top. #Quote by Royal Robbins
Mama Day quotes by Steve Toltz
#16. ... she gave me a look that deftly combined tenderness with revulsion. To this day the memory of that look still visits me like a Jehovah's Witness: uninvited and tireless. #Quote by Steve Toltz
Mama Day quotes by Mark Kloss
#17. Well, all I can say is that sheep are content, day after day in the field munching, minding their own business, not hurting anyone, having babies, being good animals. However, look how they end up! No happy ending. #Quote by Mark Kloss
Mama Day quotes by Daniel Modell
#18. Society makes a peculiar offer to its citizenry: we have a job, if you want it. Here it is.

You must stand between the predators and the innocents of the world and hold the line with your blood.

Pay is modest - and rendered grudgingly.

You will labor across hours, long and ungodly, that will test the limits of exhaustion and tedium.

Family will suffer your absence. You will miss many meaningful moments.

You will find yourself shipped to places far away, forbidding, forgotten or assigned to patrol streets savaged by violence, poverty, madness. Your presence will not be welcomed.

You will see tragedy, hopelessness and evil at depths that will rend your soul. You will be expected somehow, some way, to keep yourself whole as you drown in these so that you may confront them again the next day.

You will be called filthy names. In the course of your duties, you will be attacked, targeted, challenged. Some will try to kill you. They may succeed.

The antipathy of the press and the animosity of the public will flank you without end until your final tour of duty. Your every action, every decision, every remark will be the subject of unremitting - and unforgiving - scrutiny.

Politicians will exploit you - for good and ill - and sacrifice you to expediency once the exploitation is done.

Your mistakes, though honest, will never be forgiven - ever.

Mama Day quotes by Max Schneider
#19. I started playing piano; I picked up a ukulele, and I loved it and kept playing that. I play a bit of guitar, and some African drums from back in the day. #Quote by Max Schneider
Mama Day quotes by Andrew Sean Greer
#20. You cannot go around in grief and panic every day; people will not let you, they will coax you with tea and tell you to move on, bake cakes and paint walls. [ ... ] So what you do is you let them coax you. You bake the cake and paint the wall and smile; you buy a new freezer as if you now had a plan for the future. And secretly
in the early morning
you sew a pocket in your skin. At the hollow of your throat. So that every time you smile, or nod your head at a teacher meeting, or bend over to pick up a fallen spoon, it presses and pricks and stings and you know you've not moved on. You never even planned to. #Quote by Andrew Sean Greer
Mama Day quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#21. Punctuation! We knew it was holy. Every sentence we cherished was sturdy and Biblical in its form, carved somehow by hand-dragged implement or slapped onto sheets by an inky key. For sentences were sculptural, were we the only ones who understood? Sentences were bodies, too, as horny as the flesh-envelopes we wore around the house all day. Erotically enjambed in our loft bed, Clea patrolled my utterances for subject, verb, predicate, as a chef in a five-star kitchen would minister a recipe, insuring that a soufflé or sourdough would rise. A good brave sentence ("I can hardly bear your heel at my nape without roaring") might jolly Clea to instant climax. We'd rise from the bed giggling, clutching for glasses of cold water that sat in pools of their own sweat on bedside tables. The sentences had liberated our higher orgasms, nothing to sneeze at. Similarly, we were also sure that sentences of the right quality could end this hideous endless war, if only certain standards were adopted at the higher levels. They never would be. All the media trumpeted the Administration's lousy grammar. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Mama Day quotes by Ouida
#22. Fame! it is the flower of a day, that dies when the next sun rises. #Quote by Ouida
Mama Day quotes by Mark Batterson
#23. When you see life as an adventure, your hopes and dreams are never more than a day away! #Quote by Mark Batterson
Mama Day quotes by Jane Austen
#24. Happy for all her maternal feelings was the day on which Mrs. Bennet got rid of her two most deserving daughters. With what delighted pride she afterwards visited Mrs. Bingley, and talked of Mrs. Darcy, may be guessed. I wish I could say, for the sake of her family, that the accomplishment of her earnest desire in the establishment of so many of her children produced so happy an effect as to make her a sensible, amiable, well-informed woman for the rest of her life; though perhaps it was lucky for her husband, who might not have relished domestic felicity in so unusual a form, that she still was occasionally nervous and invariably silly. #Quote by Jane Austen
Mama Day quotes by Hiro Fujiwara
#25. I'm actually a hardcore otaku who likes maids more than having three meals a day. And I only read books related to maids. Also, I only visit maid cafes. Of course, I also collect maid figurines. I play games which feature female maids and it turns me on so much. Then I'll wear the maid uniforms and jump in joy. I'll take my leave now. #Quote by Hiro Fujiwara
Mama Day quotes by Michael Clifford
#26. I'm a pretty big pizza enthusiast so I could talk about pizza all day if you want #Quote by Michael Clifford
Mama Day quotes by Samuel Johnson
#27. To wipe all tears from off all faces is a task too hard for mortals; but to alleviate misfortunes is often within the most limited power: yet the opportunities which every day affords of relieving the most wretched of human beings are overlooked and neglected with equal disregard of policy and goodness. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Mama Day quotes by Marcel Proust
#28. In other words each of those calm and melancholy days on which I did not see her, coming one after the other without interruption, continuing too without prescription (unless some busy-body were to meddle in my affairs), was a day not lost but gained. Gained to no purpose, it might be, for presently they would be able to pronounce that I was healed. Resignation, modulating our habits, allows certain elements of our strength to be indefinitely increased. Those - so wretchedly inadequate - that I had had to support my grief, on the first evening of my rupture with Gilberte, had since multiplied to an incalculable power. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Mama Day quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#29. At the end of the day we want to bring stability and hope to Iraq. That's the only way to defeat terrorism. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Mama Day quotes by Penn Badgley
#30. I guess I never really had a high school experience. I went for about a month, and on the first day one of my friends got punched in the eye. It was Southern California Public High School. Needless to say, I wasn't there for long. #Quote by Penn Badgley
Mama Day quotes by Nancy Reagan
#31. What can you say about a man, who on Mother's Day sends flowers to his mother-in-law, with a note thanking her for making him the happiest man on Earth? #Quote by Nancy Reagan
Mama Day quotes by Felicia Day
#32. Now that we've transitioned to more Smart TVs, where people are broadcasting their cable box, I hope that Geek & Sundry is something that people will click on in the future, knowing that they're going to get content that they love. #Quote by Felicia Day
Mama Day quotes by Mary Manin Morrissey
#33. Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God. #Quote by Mary Manin Morrissey
Mama Day quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#34. I get home at the end of the day and I don't want to talk. All I want to do is lay on the floor and pet my dogs and my cats. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Mama Day quotes by Donald Trump
#35. It's a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens. #Quote by Donald Trump
Mama Day quotes by James Otis
#36. And I take this opportunity to declare, that ... I will to my dying day oppose, with all the powers and faculties God has given me, all such instruments of slavery on the one hand, and villainy on the other, as this writ of assistance is. It appears to me ... the worst instrument of arbitrary power, the most destructive of English liberty, and the fundamental principles of the constitution, that ever was found in an English law-book. #Quote by James Otis
Mama Day quotes by Joan Cusack
#37. You're curious about someone, or why they're doing what they're doing. Because everyone who gets to work in this field is so lucky, and it's such a rarified world, I understand that. At the end of the day, I'm interested in demystifying it. #Quote by Joan Cusack
Mama Day quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#38. Alas, madame!" exclaimed Athos, "to-day love is like war
the breastplate is becoming useless. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Mama Day quotes by Patrick Anderson Jr.
#39. Sean looks up at her, and he wants to explain it all to her. Explain what it's like to be rubbed so raw, to have your emotional threshold exceeded day after day, your psyche beaten so completely that you have no choice but to turn inward, shunning any and everything that's ever brought you comfort. He wants to explain that - up until the past month or so - he'd been existing in a black hole, a mental abyss that he only recently realized he put himself in.
But watching Lauren's face - the concern in her expression, so pure and complete, considering he's technically still a complete stranger - he realizes he doesn't have to explain anything. She knows what it's like. Everybody does. #Quote by Patrick Anderson Jr.
Mama Day quotes by Ryan Gosling
#40. I did this scene in 'Lars and the Real Girl' where I was in a room full of old ladies who were knitting, and it was an all-day scene, so they showed me how. It was one of the most relaxing days of my life. #Quote by Ryan Gosling
Mama Day quotes by Elizabeth Acevedo
#41. Maybe, the only thing that has to make sense
about being somebody's friend
is that you help them to be their best self
on any given day. That you give them a home
when they don't want to be in their own.
-Xiomara #Quote by Elizabeth Acevedo
Mama Day quotes by Yasmina Khadra
#42. Run after her… One day, man will surely be able to catch a comet, but all the glories of this world will not console the man who allows the real opportunity in his life to slip away. #Quote by Yasmina Khadra
Mama Day quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#43. As far as we are concerned, there is no dislike, no personal tension, no disunity or strife that cannot be overcome by intercessory prayer. Intercessory prayer is the purifying bath into which the individual and the community must enter every day. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Mama Day quotes by Lori Nawyn
#44. A heartfelt smile triumphs over a bad hair day. #Quote by Lori Nawyn
