Mary quotes by Mary Rowlandson

Mary quotes by M.C. Mary Kom
#2. What did I hope to gain from my game and from putting my parents through all this? The truth is that I loved to play. My body was fit and my mind raring to go. But I also hoped that I would get a government job through the sports quota. #Quote by M.C. Mary Kom
Mary quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#3. You do sometimes have to work on things where you love the cast and you love the filmmaker, and the role might not be great but it's fun. I'm totally down to do those things, and will continue to do those things, as well, but it at least has to be peppered with roles that are really interesting and that are hard. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Mary quotes by Mary Roach
#4. 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
Mary quotes by Mary Balogh

Mary quotes by Mary Renault
#10. Nothing will change, Alexias. No, that is false; there is change whenever there is life, and already we are not the two who met in Taureas' palaestra. But what kind of fool would plant an apple-slip, to cut it down at the season when the fruit is setting? Flowers you can get every year, but only with time the tree that shades your doorway and grows into the house with each year's sun and rain. #Quote by Mary Renault
Mary quotes by Mary Harron

Mary quotes by Mary Wibberley
#13. His grey eyes were shadowed, mysterious, and she sensed the power within him, saw the hard lines of his expressive mouth soften momentarily as he murmured:
"What a girl!" His free hand reached out to touch her face, and she could scarcely breathe. "Let me - go," but the last word was lost as his lips came down on hers in a brief hard kiss that held no passion, only insult. Incensed, she tried to push him away and was imprisoned within the circle of his arms instantly Helpless, overpowered, she jerked her head to escape further punishment and he took hold of her hair and held her completely helpless as he kissed her a second time. Harder still, ruthless - only this time something changed. Quite suddenly the kiss no longer hurt her. She found herself melting into a delirious response. found to her horror that she was enjoying it, discovered that the imprisoning arms that held her were not steel bands after all, but were warm and wonderful instead... #Quote by Mary Wibberley
Mary quotes by Mary Karr

Mary quotes by Karen Hawkins
#17. Bloody hell, what did he hit me with? An anvil?"
"His fist."
"You should put that fool in a bear-baiting pit. You'd make a fortune." Dougal struggled to rise.
Sophia helped him on one side, Mary slipping under his other arm.
The wind swirled a bit harder, sending dust into the air.
"Heavens!" Mary said, glancing over their heads at the sky. "That's the third thunderhead as has passed this way today."
Sophia turned. A huge bank of thunderclouds hung overhead, roiling as if alive.
"We should get inside," she said uneasily.
Dougal didn't even glance at the clouds as he held a hand over his bruised eye and cheek. "Bloody hell, I can barely see. #Quote by Karen Hawkins

Mary quotes by Mother Teresa

Mary quotes by Jodi Picoult
#22. Hunger, she often tells me, has nothing to do with the belly and everything to do with the mind. What Mary really runs isn't a bakery, but a community. #Quote by Jodi Picoult

that who seeks grace without recourse to you
would have his wish fly upward without wings. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Mary quotes by Danny Saunders
#24. In my end lies my beginning" Who said that? Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (1542-1587). #Quote by Danny Saunders
Mary quotes by Mary Roach
#25. The driving aesthetic of military style is uniformity. Whence the word uniform. From first inspection to Arlington National Cemetery, soldiers look like those around them: same hat, same boots, identical white grave marker. They are discouraged from looking unique, because that would encourage them to feel unique, to feel like an individual. The problem with individuals is that they think for themselves and of themselves, rather than for and of their unit. They're the lone goldfish on the old Pepperidge Farm bags, swimming the other way. They're a problem. #Quote by Mary Roach
Mary quotes by Mary Timony
#26. I will go through these style phases. I think it's confusing in some ways. People like bands to be really consistent. #Quote by Mary Timony
Mary quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#27. The use of knowledge in our sex (beside the amusement of solitude) is to moderate the passions and learn to be contented with a small expense, which are the certain effects of a studious life and, it may be, preferable even to that fame which men have engrossed to themselves and will not suffer us to share. #Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#28. You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary quotes by Mary J. Williams
#29. I made the first move. Now it's up to him."
"Telling him you should hit the sack and get it out of your system is not making the first move. #Quote by Mary J. Williams
Mary quotes by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
#30. Grounding is taking a conscious effort to retract oneself from the world's distractions, and then focusing on listening to isolate the voice of God within from the voice of the ego. The voice of God within is where all the answers lie. #Quote by Jacent Mary Mpalyenkana
Mary quotes by Mary Carroll Nelson
#31. Every artist who evolves a style does so from illusive elements that inhabit his or her visual storehouse. #Quote by Mary Carroll Nelson
Mary quotes by Mary Balogh
#32. - The idea that love conquers all may seem to be a foolishly idealistic one, but I believe in it nonetheless. How can I believe otherwise? If love cannot conquer all, what can? Hatred? Violence? Despair? #Quote by Mary Balogh
Mary quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#33. The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Mary quotes by Mary Roach
#34. Constipation ran Presley's life. Even his famous motto TCB -  'Taking Care of Business' -  sounds like a reference to bathroom matters. #Quote by Mary Roach
Mary quotes by Mary Quant
#35. I didn't get fat even when I was pregnant. You have to work very hard at staying slim, and it's a bore. But it's worth it. #Quote by Mary Quant

Mary quotes by Neal Stephenson
#38. Organizers had been able to find interpreters for. First up on the dais was Mary Bulinski, the United States secretary of the interior, an inveterate hiker and climber, spry at sixty. By training she was a wildlife #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Mary quotes by Mary Ann Shaffer
#39. The war is now the story of our lives, and there's no denying it #Quote by Mary Ann Shaffer
Mary quotes by Francis George
#40. Racism, whether personal, social, institutional or structural, contradicts the purpose of the incarnation of the Word of God in the womb of the Virgin Mary. Racism contradicts God's will for our salvation. #Quote by Francis George
Mary quotes by Mary Elizabeth
#41. Don't you get it, baby?"
"What's there to get?" she asks.
"That I love you."
"Well, you have a shitty way of showing it.
I smirk. "That doesn't make it any less true. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth
Mary quotes by Mary Wesley
#42. I was sent to a finishing school, which didn't last long when mother found out how badly chaperoned we were. Then I 'came out' before going to a domestic science school. #Quote by Mary Wesley
Mary quotes by Mary Stewart
#43. A story-book hero had by definition no place in life; he battered his way through twenty victorious chapters, faded out on a lustful kiss, and was gone for good. #Quote by Mary Stewart
Mary quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#44. Whereas the angel "came" to Mary (Lk 1:28), he merely appears to Joseph in a dream - admittedly a dream that is real and reveals what is real. Once again this shows us an essential quality of the figure of Saint Joseph: his capacity to perceive the divine and his ability to discern. Only a man who is inwardly watchful for the divine, only someone with a real sensitivity for God and his ways, can receive God's message in this way. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Mary quotes by Mary Pipher
#45. The protected place in space and time that we once called childhood has grown shorter. #Quote by Mary Pipher
Mary quotes by Mary Barnett Gilson
#46. It is my conviction that in general women are more snobbish and class conscious than men and that these ignoble traits are a product of men's attitude toward women and women's passive acceptance of this attitude. #Quote by Mary Barnett Gilson
Mary quotes by Mary Lambert
#47. Sylvia Plath, Rumi, there's a lot of spoken word poets who do a really incredible job putting their spoken work into page poetry - that's what I strive to do. #Quote by Mary Lambert
Mary quotes by Mary Beth McKenzie
#48. Sometimes working on one painting will help solve a problem in another painting. #Quote by Mary Beth McKenzie
Mary quotes by Karen Hawkins
#49. Though he may dally with loose women, he's been raised a gentleman. He would never touch me unless I gave him permission." He might use incredibly powerful seduction tactics, but that was her problem, not Angus's.
"Aye," Mary said. "Don't ye remember how the miss took care o' the squire's son when he tried to kiss her in the garden?" She beamed at Sophia. "That was well done."
Sophia grinned. "He limped for a week"
Angus grunted. "The squire's son isn't half the man this one is. This is no boy ye're dealin' with here. He's a man's man;ye can see it in his eyes."
She placed a hand on his arm. "Angus, if it will make you feel better, I promise to call for help if MacLean so much as looks askance at me. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Mary quotes by Richard Wurmbrand
#50. I said to myself if Christianity is dead, I will sit at its tomb and will weep until it arises again, just as Mary Magdalene sat at the tomb of Jesus and wept until Jesus showed Himself. Then when I came out of prison I saw Christianity is not dead. The number of practicing Christians in Rumania according to the figures given by the Communists themselves in 20 years of Communist dictatorship has grown 300 percent. #Quote by Richard Wurmbrand
Mary quotes by Mary Webb

Mary prays - prays together with the community of disciples, and teaches us to have full faith in God, in his mercy. This is the power of prayer! #Quote by Pope Francis

Mary quotes by Mary Higgins Clark

Mary quotes by Mary Lambert
#61. Before I got on full-time medication, I believed that my mental disorder was the reason I could create so much and create well, because it made me crazy. I could go to these dark places and then come out of it and just be human again. #Quote by Mary Lambert

Mary quotes by Mary Roach

Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#69. Ten times a day something happens to me like this - some strengthening throb of amazement - some good sweet empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Renault

Mary quotes by Mary Roach
#72. I guess I feel the same way about being a corpse. Why lie around on your back when you can do something interesting and new, something useful? #Quote by Mary Roach
Mary quotes by Lorrie Moore
#73. I felt sorry for Mary-Emma and all she was going through, every day waking up to something new. Though maybe that was what childhood was. But I couldn't quite recall that being the case for me. And perhaps she would grow up with a sense that incompetence was all around here, and it was entirely possible I would be instrumental in that. She would grow up with love, but no sense that the people who loved her knew what they were doing - the opposite of my childhood - and so she would become suspicious of people, suspicious of love and the worth of it. Which in the end, well, would be a lot like me. So perhaps it didn't matter what happened to you as a girl: you ended up the same. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#74. Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Mary quotes by Mary Eva Swatek
#75. I sort of kind of said something a little like that but maybe not clearly enough to sound like that ... But it's what I meant. #Quote by Mary Eva Swatek
Mary quotes by Mary Elizabeth Ellis
#76. It's fun to be debaucherous and the worst version of yourself. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Ellis
Mary quotes by Mary Balogh
#77. There is nothing worse, is there," she said, "than a past that has never been fully dealt with. One can convince oneself, that it is all safely in the past and forgotten about, but the very fact that we can tell ourselves that it is forgotten proves that it is not. #Quote by Mary Balogh
Mary quotes by Mary Stobie
#78. A memoir emerges from facts and dreams, and tells the story we have almost forgotten.

by Mary Stobie #Quote by Mary Stobie
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#79. But I also say this: that light is an invitation to happiness, and that happiness, when it's done right, is a kind of holiness, palpable and redemptive. #Quote by Mary Oliver

#83. Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead. #Quote by Mary Pierce
Mary quotes by Mary Karr
#84. Gary Shteyngart has written a memoir for the ages. I spat laughter on the first page and closed the last with wet eyes. Un-put-down-able in the day and a half I spent reading it, Little Failure is a window into immigrant agony and ambition, Jewish angst, and anybody's desperate need for a tribe. Readers who've fallen for Shteyngart's antics on the page will relish the trademark humor. But here it's laden and leavened with a deep, consequential, psychological journey. Brave and unflinching, Little Failure is his best book to date #Quote by Mary Karr
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#85. You are still, as you ever were, lovely, beautiful beyond expression. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#86. The being who discharges the duties of its station, is independent; and, speaking of women at large, their first duty is to themselves as rational creatures, and the next, in point of importance, as citizens, is that, which includes so many, of a mother. The rank in life which dispenses with their fulfilling this duty, necessarily degrades them by making them mere dolls. Or, should they turn to something more important than merely fitting drapery upon a smooth block, their minds are only occupied by some soft platonic attachment; or, the actual management of an intrigue may keep their thoughts in motion; for when they neglect domestic duties, they have it not in their power to take the field and march and counter-march like soldiers, or wrangle in the senate to keep their faculties from rusting. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Mary quotes by Alistair MacLean
#87. They'll be coming for you, Mr. Jones. They'll be coming any moment now. I hate to say this, but I must. It is my duty to warn you what will happen to you, an enemy spy. You'll be tortured, Mr. Jones - not simply everyday tortures like pulling out your teeth and toe-nails, but unspeakable tortures I can't mention with Miss Ellison here - and then you'll finish in the gas chambers. If you're still alive.'

Mary clutched his arm. 'Would they - would they really do that?'

'Good God, no!' Smith stared at her in genuine surprise.

'What on earth would they want to do that for?' He raised his voice again: 'You'll die in a screaming agony, Mr. Jones, an agony beyond your wildest nightmares. And you'll take a long time dying. Hours. Maybe days. And screaming. Screaming all the time.'

'What in God's name am I to do?' The desperate voice from above was no longer quavering, it vibrated like a broken bed-spring. 'What can I do?'

'You can slide down that rope,' Smith said brutally. 'Fifteen feet. Fifteen little feet, Mr. Jones. My God, you could do that in a pole vault.'

'I can't.' The voice was a wail. 'I simply can't.'

'Yes, you can,' Smith urged. 'Grab the rope now, close your eyes, out over the sill and down. Keep your eyes closed. We can catch you.'

'I can't! I can't!'

'Oh God!' Smith said despairingly. 'Oh, my God! It's too late now.'

'It's too - what in heaven's name do you me #Quote by Alistair MacLean
Mary quotes by Mary Renault
#88. In hatred is love, we grow like the thing we brood upon. What we loathe, we graft into our very soul. #Quote by Mary Renault
Mary quotes by Mary Ann Shaffer
#89. I sometimes think I prefer suitors in books rather than right in front of me. How awful, backward, cowardly, and mentally warped that will be if it turns out to be true. #Quote by Mary Ann Shaffer
Mary quotes by Mary Parker Follett
#90. The best leader does not ask people to serve him, but the common end. The best leader has not followers, but men and women working with him. #Quote by Mary Parker Follett
Mary quotes by Mary Norton
#91. As people, other people, living in a house who ... borrow things?"
Mrs. May laid down her work. "What do you think?" she asked.
"I don't know," Kate said, pulling hard at her shoe button. "There can't be. And yet"-she raised her head-"and yet sometimes I think there must be."
"Why do you think there must be?" asked Mrs. May.
"Because of all the things that disappear. Safety pins, for instance. Factories go on making safety pins, and every day people go on buying safety pins and yet, somehow, there never is a safety pin just when you want one. Where are they all? Now, at this minute? Where do they go to? Take needles," she went on. "All the needles my mother ever bought-there must be hundreds-can't just be lying about this house."
"Not lying about the house, no," agreed Mrs. May.
"And all the other things we keep on buying. Again and again and again. Like pencils and match boxes and sealing-wax and hairpins and drawing pins and thimbles- #Quote by Mary Norton
Mary quotes by Mary MacLane
#92. I Don't Know whether lust is a human coarseness or a human fineness: I don't know why death holds a so sweet lure since it would take away my Body: I don't know that I wouldn't deny my Christ, if I had one, three times before a given cockcrow: I don't know on the other hand that I would: I don't know whether honor is a reality in human beings or a pose: I don't know that I mayn't be able to think with my Body when it is in its coffin. #Quote by Mary MacLane
Mary quotes by Mary Balogh
#93. Pain is not insignificant. Neither is bewilderment or fear. Or conditions like poverty or homelessness. But somewhere - somewhere - there is peace. It is not even far off. It is somewhere deep inside us, in fact, ever present, just waiting for us to look inward to find it. She #Quote by Mary Balogh
Mary quotes by Mary C. Lamia
#94. Volatile expressions of anger and hostility combined with a tendency to blame others often result from feeling shame ... If you are shame-prone, any accusation directed at you, regardless of how mildly it may be delivered, has the potential to make you feel that you have failed or that you are inadequate. Rather than simply admit wrongdoing, you get angry and accusatory in order to hold yourself blameless. Using anger or hostility for self-protection hides your vulnerability and needs. Unfortunately, since most people are repelled by an angry response, this method may be effective.
Your anger may drive away the very people who should know your real feelings, and it may deprive you of the opportunity to allow others to be aware of your needs. Behaving in an offensive or frightening way toward others can cause them to retreat out of fear. But, actually, the fear is your own, which you have turned against someone else in the form of anger. #Quote by Mary C. Lamia
Mary quotes by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
#95. Conscience is the name which the orthodox give to their prejudices. #Quote by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#96. Various ambitions to complete the poem, to see it in print, to enjoy the gratification of someone's comment about it - serve in some measure as incentives to the writer's work. Though each of these is reasonable, each is a threat to the other ambition of the poet, which is to write as well as Keats, Yeats, or Williams - or whoever it was who scribbled onto a page a few lines whose force the reader once felt and has never forgotten. Every poet's ambition should be to write as well. Anything else is only a flirtation. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#97. Literary commercialism is lowering the intellectual standard to accommodate the purse and to meet a frivolous demand for amusement instead of for improvement. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Mary quotes by Mary Todd Lincoln
#98. I don't think I'm allowed to talk about that. It is definitely not me. The role has been cast. #Quote by Mary Todd Lincoln
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#99. I could not be a poet without the natural world. Someone else could. But not me. For me the door to the woods is the door to the temple. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#100. In ballet, I felt that no matter how good I was, if I didn't have the right body type or if I didn't fit a certain mold there was nothing I could do. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Mary quotes by Mary Robinson
#101. We must understand the role of human rights as empowering of individuals and communities. By protecting these rights, we can help prevent the many conflicts based on poverty, discrimination and exclusion (social, economic and political) that continue to plague humanity and destroy decades of development efforts. The vicious circle of human rights violations that lead to conflicts-which in turn lead to more violations-must be broken. I believe we can break it only by ensuring respect for all human rights. #Quote by Mary Robinson
Mary quotes by Mary Wells Lawrence
#102. If you're not satisfied with your life, it's time to invent a new one. #Quote by Mary Wells Lawrence
Mary quotes by George Eliot
#103. There were intervals in which she could sit perfectly still, enjoying the outer stillness and the subdued light. The red fire with its gently audible movement seemed like a solemn existence calmly independent of the petty passions, the imbecile desires, the straining after worthless uncertainties, which were daily moving her contempt. Mary was fond of her own thoughts, and could amuse herself well sitting in the twilight with her hands in her lap; for, having early had strong reason to believe that things were not likely to be arranged for her peculiar satisfaction, she wasted no time in astonishment and annoyance at that fact. And she had already come to take life very much as a comedy in which she had a proud, nay, a generous resolution not to act the mean or treacherous part. Mary might have become cynical if she had not had parents whom she honoured, and a well of affectionate gratitude within her, which was all the fuller because she had learned to make no unreasonable claims.

She sat to-night revolving, as she was wont, the scenes of the day, her lips often curling with amusement at the oddities to which her fancy added fresh drollery: people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools' caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else's were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy. #Quote by George Eliot
Mary quotes by Carolyn Meyer
#104. Love overcame reason...I had rather beg my bread with him than to be the greatest queen christened. #Quote by Carolyn Meyer
Mary quotes by Mary Shelley
#105. The possessions most esteemed by your fellow-creatures were high and unsullied descent united with riches. A man might be respected with only one of these advantages; but, without either, he was considered, except in very rare instances, as a vagabond and a slave, doomed to waste his powers for the profits of the chosen few! #Quote by Mary Shelley
Mary quotes by Mary Badham
#106. I didn't know anything about movies or movie stars or the Academy or anything. I was just a blank sheet of paper. I was totally ignorant of all that stuff. I never went to the movies, didn't know anything about the movies. #Quote by Mary Badham
Mary quotes by Mary-Louise Parker
#107. I couldn't get life loud enough. #Quote by Mary-Louise Parker

Mary quotes by Mary Jo Bang
#109. You are reduced / To the after-sorrow / That will last my lifetime. The hair-tearing / Grief of the mother / Whose child has been swept away. #Quote by Mary Jo Bang
Mary quotes by Deborah Harkness
#110. She will have reason in future to thank you for it," said Mary. Her face was serious. "We women own nothing absolutely, save what lies between our ears. Our virtue belongs first to our father and then to our husband. We dedicate our duty to our family. As soon as we share our thoughts with another, put pen to paper or thread a needle, all that we do and make belongs to someone else. So long as she has words and ideas, Annie will always possess something that is hers alone." "If #Quote by Deborah Harkness

Mary quotes by Mary Alice Monroe
#112. I thought of my mother and her wise advice. She'd always been there for me. Even when I was at my worst. She made me want to be a better son. #Quote by Mary Alice Monroe
Mary quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#113. If anything is scary about my writing, it's that it's the product of a very particular vision and doesn't reference common speech that heavily. By 'common speech,' I don't mean language as much as an agreed-on way of seeing, or a shorthand. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Mary quotes by Mary Fisher
#114. I appeal: Learn with me the lessons of history and of grace, so my children will not be afraid to say the word 'AIDS' when I am gone. Then, their children and yours may not need to whisper it at all. #Quote by Mary Fisher
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#115. Now the fire rises and offers a dozen, singing, deep-red roses of flame. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Daly
#116. Hags live. Women traveling into feminist time/space are creating Hag-ocracy, the place we govern. To govern is to steer, to pilot. #Quote by Mary Daly
Mary quotes by Mary Blakely
#117. Mothers are likely to have more bad days on the job than most other professionals, considering the hours: round-the-clock, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year ... You go to work when you're sick, maybe even clinically depressed, because motherhood is perhaps the only unpaid position where failure to show up can result in arrest. #Quote by Mary Blakely
Mary quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#118. It's not an easy thing to tell the girl that you love more than life itself that you're going to marry someone else. #Quote by Mary E. Pearson

Mary quotes by Mary Doria Russell

Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#122. But the palace of knowledge is different from the palace of discovery, in which I am, truly, a Copernicus. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#123. Praying
It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Wesley
#124. A lot of people stop short. They don't actually die but they say, 'Right I'm old, and I'm going to retire,' and then they dwindle into nothing. They go off to Florida and become jolly boring. #Quote by Mary Wesley
Mary quotes by Mary-Louise Parker
#125. I don't think anyone honestly would hire me, so I don't think I have to worry but, if it was well written I would do it. I would do anything #Quote by Mary-Louise Parker

Mary quotes by Rick Perlstein
#129. One of the ladies asked about that awful Bobby Kennedy, and Goldwater responded by speaking about the attorney general with touching affection. (Mary) McGrory recalled how Jack Kennedy behaved at a similar stage in his campaign: spouting statistics, attacking carefully chosen enemies and puffing all the right friends, quoting dead Greeks, never cracking a joke lest he remind the voters how young he was. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Mary quotes by Mary Anna King
#130. But in life, no one is spared, no one is let off the hook. Those buried sensations had to come out, be felt, addressed, and lived through.
I wish I could say I let it all out that night. All of the tears, all of the screams, all of the bullshit. But I didn't. I couldn't. It would take something much stronger to bring all that out of me. Still. By the time the sun rose the next morning, one thing had changed: I was no longer full of shit... I drove west; needing to escape the gravitational pull of both of my families and anyone who knew them. I needed to wallow in uncertainty, without the balancing effects of religion or school, or friends, or family to cling to. If I was ever going to figure out who I was, I needed to be a stranger again. #Quote by Mary Anna King
Mary quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#131. We need to gather everyone we can.
Damien scoffed. Uh, boss, hate to be a pall, but I think everyone we can gather is currently in this room.
Sin paused to look at Simi, Xirena, Damien, Kat, Kish, and Xypher. It was a pitiful number of defenders. But it was all the world had. In that case, we need to seriously arm ourselves.
Damien crossed himself. Hail Mary, full of grace-
What are you doing? Kish asked. You're not Catholic.
Yeah but I'm feeling really religious all of a sudden and it seemed like a good idea. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Mary quotes by Mary Roach
#137. I spend a lot of my time on the phone, pestering people. 'What's new in your lab? Can I come visit your lab? When can I come visit your lab?' I'm basically a professional pesterer. #Quote by Mary Roach
Mary quotes by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
#138. maternal love, the most successful object of the religious imagination of romantic art. For the most part real and human, it is yet entirely spiritual, without the interest and exigency of desire, not sensuous and yet present: absolutely satisfied and blissful spiritual depth. It is a love without craving, but it is not friendship; for be friendship never so rich in emotion, it yet demands a content, something essential, as a mutual end and aim. Whereas, without any reciprocity of aim and interests, maternal love has an immediate support in the natural bond of connection. But in this instance the mother's love is not at all restricted to the natural side. In the child which she conceived and then bore in travail, Mary has the complete knowledge and feeling of herself; and the same child, blood of her blood, stands all the same high above her, and nevertheless this higher being belongs to her and is the object in which she forgets and maintains herself. The natural depth of feeling in the mother's love is altogether spiritualized; it has the Divine as its proper content, but this spirituality remains lowly and unaware, marvellously penetrated by natural oneness and human feeling. It is the blissful maternal love, the love of the one mother alone who was the first recipient of this joy. Of course this love too is not without grief, but the grief is only the sorrow of loss, lamentation for her suffering, dying, and dead son, and does not, as we shall see at a later stage,[9] res #Quote by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
Mary quotes by Liz Cheney
#139. I love Mary very much. I love her family very much. This is just an issue in which we disagree. #Quote by Liz Cheney
Mary quotes by Mary B. Harris
#140. Unless we maintain correctional institutions of such character that they create respect for law and government instead of breeding resentment and a desire for revenge, we are meeting lawlessness with stupidity and making a travesty of justice. #Quote by Mary B. Harris

Mary quotes by Damian Barr
#144. Mary the Canary lives in a cloud of perfume and colours. She's an auxiliary nurse by day and a country and western singer by night: bed pans and power ballass. She's so glamorous she makes Mrs Hart look plain. She is the other woman and I'm bring trained to hate her even though I've never met her. #Quote by Damian Barr
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#145. The sentiment of immediate loss in some sort decayed, while that of utter, irremediable loneliness grew on me with time. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary quotes by Gena Showalter
#146. He turned, throwing over hi shoulder, "And if he growls at you, even once, he's out. He looks wild."
I am, Riley snapped inside her head.
Do not laugh, she thought to herself.
Her dad paused at the door. "Where does it stay while you're at school?"
It. Nice. "Outside."
"You could be inviting flees into our home, Mary Ann."
No. Laughing. "He's clean, Dad. I swear. But if I spot a single little bug, I'll bathe him."
That could prove interesting, Riley said. #Quote by Gena Showalter

Mary quotes by Kate Mulgrew
#153. They loved her because she was an independent spirit, unafraid to speak her mind, passionate, impetuous, and brave. Seldom lauded for her beauty, Mary Ryan had something else to offer, something women could grab ahold of and understand. She had a powerful sense of self, and this proved more magnetic and more relatable than any other single quality. #Quote by Kate Mulgrew
Mary quotes by Mary McGarry Morris

Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft

Mary quotes by Mary Kingsley
#158. The grim, grand African forests are like a great library, in which, so far, I can do little more than look at the pictures, although I am now busily learning the alphabet of their language, so that I may some day read what these pictures mean. #Quote by Mary Kingsley

#169. I leave you love. I leave you hope. I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in one another. I leave you a thirst for education. I leave you a respect for the use of power. I leave you faith. I leave you racial dignity. I leave you a desire to live harmoniously with your fellow men. I leave you finally, a responsibility to our young people. #Quote by Mary McLeod Bethune

Mary quotes by Mary Abigail Dodge

Mary quotes by Mary Jane Hathaway
#177. Her face crumpled and he felt her pain as if it was his own. He wanted to take it back, but just like that memory, it was always going to be there.
She worked to get control over her features, then said, "I'm sorry I didn't defend you. I'm sorry I didn't tell them you were my guest."
Jem hadn't thought he cared anymore, not really, but her words were tugging loose the hard, painful knot in his chest. "It's okay."
She shook her head. "It's not. It wasn't."
He reached out and cupped her cheek in his hand. He didn't know what else to say and all he wanted was to touch her skin, let her know that he wasn't that boy anymore and that she wasn't that girl. #Quote by Mary Jane Hathaway
Mary quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#178. Or more important, I an a Christian (which can be deduced from my stories), and in fact a Roman Catholic. The latter "fact" perhaps cannot be deduced; though one critic (by letter) asserted that the invocations of Elbereth, and the character of Galadriel as directly described (or through the words of Gimli and Sam) were clearly related to Catholic devotion to Mary. Another saw in waybread (lembras)=vaticum and the reference to its feeding the will (vol. III, p. 213) and being more potent when fasting, a derivation from the Eucharist. (letter 213) #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien

Mary quotes by Osamu Dazai
#182. I never could think of prostitutes as human beings or even as women. They seemed more like imbeciles or lunatics. But in their arms I felt absolute security. I could sleep soundly. It was pathetic how utterly devoid of greed they really were. And perhaps because they felt for me something like an affinity for their kind, these prostitutes always showed me a natural friendliness which never became oppressive. Friendliness with no ulterior motive, friendliness stripped of high-pressure salesmanship, for someone who might never come again. Some nights I saw these imbecile, lunatic prostitutes with the halo of Mary. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Mary quotes by Mary Daly
#183. I know that I will be punished just as much for being an itty-bitty feminist as for going the whole way. And so I go the whole way. #Quote by Mary Daly
Mary quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#184. I don't mean you should despise people for being weak, if it's a kind of weakness they can't help. But when they're weak on purpose, it's another thing. When they don't even try. When they let people hurt them and don't fight back. It's gross. It's letting down the whole human race. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Mary quotes by Mary Crosby

Mary quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#186. You have the great gift of understanding, beloved Mary. You are a life-giver, Mary. You are like the Great Spirit, who befriends man not only to share his life, but to add to it. My knowing you is the greatest thing in my days and nights a miracle quite outside the natural order of things.
I have always held, with my Madman, that those who understand us enslave something in us. It is not so with you. Your understanding of me is the most peaceful freedom I have known. And in the last two hours of your last visit you took y heart in your hand and found a black spot in it. But just as soon as you found the spot it was erased forever, and I became absolutely chainless. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Mary quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#187. Close to the Cross was the only Apostle present, John, whose face was like a cast moulded out of love; Magdalen was there too, like a broken flower, a wounded thing. But foremost among all-God pity her!-was His own mother. Mary, Magdalen, John; innocence, penitence, and priesthood; the three types of souls forever to be found beneath the Cross of Christ. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Mary quotes by Mary Quast
#188. Believe in yourself, believe in love. #Quote by Mary Quast
Mary quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#189. The man who can be contented to live with a pretty and useful companion who has no mind has lost in voluptuous gratifications a taste for more refined pleasures; he has never felt the calm and refreshing satisfaction ... of being loved by someone who could understand him. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Mary quotes by Mary Augusta Ward
#190. The only thing which can keep journalism alive - journalism, which is born of the moment, serves the moment, and, as a rule, dies with the moment - is - again the Stevensonian secret! - charm. #Quote by Mary Augusta Ward
Mary quotes by Mary Balogh
#191. It was the challenge of life too, was it not? People could never be fully understood. They were ever changing, different people at different times and under different circumstances and influences. And always growing, always creating themselves anew.
How impossible it was to know another human being.
How impossible to know even oneself. #Quote by Mary Balogh
Mary quotes by Mary Oliver
#192. How many mysteries have you seen in your lifetime? How many nets pulled full over the boat's side, each silver body ready or not falling into submission? How many roses in early summer uncurling above the pale sands then falling back in unfathomable willingness? And what can you say? Glory to the rose and the leaf, to the seed, to the silver fish. Glory to time and the wild fields, and to joy. And to grief's shock and torpor, its near swoon. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Mary quotes by Mary Kay Ash
#193. Criticize the act, not the person. #Quote by Mary Kay Ash
Mary quotes by Mary Pope Osborne
#194. When I was four years old, my father, who was a colonel in the army, was stationed in Salzburg, Austria. Across the street from our house was an ancient castle on a cliff. So when I first heard fairy tales, I felt as if the magic of 'Cinderella' or 'Sleeping Beauty' was taking place right in my own neighborhood. #Quote by Mary Pope Osborne
