Murky Water quotes by Lemony Snicket
#1. Like most fourteen-year-olds, she was right-handed, so the rocks skipped farther across the murky water when Violet used her right hand then when she used her left. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Murky Water quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#2. Mom frowned, and I wanted to give her a thumbs-up to let her know I was okay. All I could manage was raising my bound hands in her general direction, clocking Cal on the chin as I did so. "Sorry."
"No problem. Must be weird for you, having your mom here."
"Weird for me, weird for her, probably weird for you since you had to give up your swinging bachelor pad."
"Mrs. Casnoff let me install my heart-shaped Jacuzzi in my new dorm room."
"Cal," I said with mock astonishment, "did you just make a joke?"
"Maybe," he replied. We'd reached the end of the pier. I looked down at the water and tried not to shudder.
"I'll be pretending, of course, but do you have any advice on how I'm supposed to not drown?" I asked Cal.
"Don't breathe in water."
"Oh,thanks,that's super helpful."
Cal shifted me in his arms, and I tensed. Just before he tossed me into the pond, he leaned in and whispered, "Good luck."
And then I hit the water.
I can't say what my first thought was as I sunk below the surface, because it was mostly a string of four-letter words. The water was way too cold for a pond in Georgia in May, and I could feel the chill sinking all the way into my bones. Plus my chest started burning almost immediately, and I sunk all the way to the bottom, landing in the slimy mud.
Okay,Sophie,I thought. Don't panic.
Then I glanced over to my right, and through the murky water, made out a skull grinning back at me.
I panicked. #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Murky Water quotes by Liu Yiming
#3. Murky Water, Dusty Mirror

Murky water is turbid; let it settle and it clears. A dusty mirror is dim; clean it and it is bright.

What I realize as I observe this is the Tao of clarifying the mind and perceiving its essence.

The reason why people's minds are not clear and their natures are not stable is that they are full of craving and emotion. Add to this eons of mental habit, acquired influences deluding the mind, their outgrowths clogging up the opening of awareness - this is like water being murky, like a mirror being dusty. The original true mind and true essence are totally lost. The feelings and senses are unruly, subject to all kinds of influences, taking in all sorts of things, defiling the mind.

If one can suddenly realize this and change directions, wash away pollution and contamination, gradually remove a lifetime of biased mental habits, wandering thoughts and perverse actions, increasing in strength with persistence, refining away the dross until there is nothing more to be refined away, when the slag is gone the gold is pure. The original mind and fundamental essence will spontaneously appear in full, the light of wisdom will suddenly arise, and one will clearly see the universe as though it were in the palm of the hand, with no obstruction.

This is like murky water returning to clarity when settled, like a dusty mirror being restored to brightness when polished. That which is fundamental is as ever: without #Quote by Liu Yiming
Murky Water quotes by Sherman Alexie
#4. All of the Indians must have tragic features: tragic noses, eyes, and arms.
Their hands and fingers must be tragic when they reach for tragic food.

The hero must be a half-breed, half white and half Indian, preferably
from a horse culture. He should often weep alone. That is mandatory.

If the hero is an Indian woman, she is beautiful. She must be slender
and in love with a white man. But if she loves an Indian man

then he must be a half-breed, preferably from a horse culture.
If the Indian woman loves a white man, then he has to be so white

that we can see the blue veins running through his skin like rivers.
When the Indian woman steps out of her dress, the white man gasps

at the endless beauty of her brown skin. She should be compared to nature:
brown hills, mountains, fertile valleys, dewy grass, wind, and clear water.

If she is compared to murky water, however, then she must have a secret.
Indians always have secrets, which are carefully and slowly revealed.

Yet Indian secrets can be disclosed suddenly, like a storm.
Indian men, of course, are storms. The should destroy the lives

of any white women who choose to love them. All white women love
Indian men. That is always the case. White women feign disgust

at the savage in blue jeans and T-shirt, but secretly lust after him.
White women dream about half-breed Indian men from #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Murky Water quotes by Harold B. Lee
#5. Wouldn't it be a great thing if all who are well schooled in secular learning could hold fast to the "iron rod," or the word of God, which could lead them, through faith, to an understanding, rather than to have them stray away into strange paths of man-made theories and be plunged into the murky waters of disbelief and apostasy? #Quote by Harold B. Lee
Murky Water quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#6. myself have seen the bodies of schoolgirls who were boiled alive in a water tower by my own countrymen, who were proud of fighting pure evil at the time." This #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Murky Water quotes by Peter Arvo
#7. Most of our body is made of water, and we should aspire to be more like waters middle state. Seek not to be rigid, cold, and unchanging like ice, nor like water vapor with no direction or substance. Instead we should seek to be like that of flowing water; fluid, dynamic, able to float heavy burdens with ease, changing course with gentle guidance and adaptable. #Quote by Peter Arvo
Murky Water quotes by Mark Adam Kaplan
#8. Elaine's lows were low, but her highs were...well her highs were magic that transformed mere earth, air, and water into the breath of life. #Quote by Mark Adam Kaplan
Murky Water quotes by Sengcan
#9. When thought is in bondage the truth is hidden, for everything is murky and unclear, and the burdensome practice of judging brings annoyance and weariness. What benefit can be derived from distinctions and separations? #Quote by Sengcan
Murky Water quotes by Rob Brezsny
#10. Now try these Drivetime talismans on for size: organized chaos ... wild discipline ... reverent blasphemy ... self-effacing grandiosity ... fanatic moderation ... selfish gifts ... twisted calm ... garish elegance ... insane poise ... ironic sincerity ... blasphemous prayers ... orgiastic lucidity ... aggressive sensitivity ... convoluted simplicity ... macho feminism. Homework Discuss what is wetter than water, stronger than love, and more exotic than trust. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Murky Water quotes by Emily Murdoch
#11. Snow begins to fall, this boneless water turned mighty. #Quote by Emily Murdoch
Murky Water quotes by Paulo Coelho
#12. There are probably other things in the world that the sheep can't teach me, thought the boy as he regarded the old merchant. All they ever do, really, is look for food and water. And maybe it wasn't that they were teaching me, but that I was learning from them. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Murky Water quotes by Mary Oliver
It isn't very far as highways lie.
I might be back by nightfall, having seen
The rough pines, and the stones, and the clear water.
Friends argue that I might be wiser for it.
They do not hear that far-off Yankee whisper:
How dull we grow from hurrying here and there!
Many have gone, and think me half a fool
To miss a day away in the cool country.
Maybe. But in a book I read and cherish,
Going to Walden is not so easy a thing
As a green visit. It is the slow and difficult
Trick of living, and finding it where you are. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Murky Water quotes by George Singleton
#14. Think about all the selfish non-smokers out there, driving around on asphalt, drinking water out of the tap, not even thinking about how smokers' taxes help pay for it all. #Quote by George Singleton
Murky Water quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#15. It required some rudeness to disturb with our boat the mirror-like surface of the water, in which every twig and blade of grass was so faithfully reflected; too faithfully indeed for art to imitate, for only Nature may exaggerate herself. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Murky Water quotes by Nancy Reagan
#16. A woman is like a teabag. It's only when she's in hot water that you realize how strong she is. #Quote by Nancy Reagan
Murky Water quotes by Phillip Andrew Bennett Low
#17. The angel being interrogated paced back and forth, anxiously running his fingers through his hair. Of course, being an angel, he didn't really do any of those things - being a fearsome creature, all wings and feathers and eyes. You might say, rather, that he fluttered about in a vaguely serpentine fashion, straightening out and smoothing one half of his wings with the other. But then, that would be difficult to envision, and probably meaningless, in terms of effectively interpreting his peculiar range of emotion; so we're just going to go ahead and say that he paced,
because these are angels, and poetic license is the only kind of license that holds any water with them. #Quote by Phillip Andrew Bennett Low
Murky Water quotes by Erin Hunter
#18. I would like to choose my own warrior name. If it is all right, I wish to be known as Crowfeather." Crowpaw spoke so quietly, his voice was almost lost in the pounding water. "I wish to keep alive the memory of . . . of the cat who did not return from the first journey. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Murky Water quotes by W. H. Auden
#19. Water is the soul of the Earth. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Murky Water quotes by Saul Williams
#20. We claim the present as the pre-sent, as the hereafter. We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun.
We are not afraid of the darkness, we trust that the moon shall guide us.
We are determining the future at this very moment. We now know that the heart is the philosophers' stone. Our music is our alchemy. We stand as the manifested equivalent of 3 buckets of water and a hand full of minerals, thus realizing that those very buckets turned upside down supply the percussion factor of forever ... #Quote by Saul Williams
Murky Water quotes by Elin Hilderbrand
#21. The sun was a juicy pink as it sank toward the water. Rex played "As Time Goes By." The foie gras was good enough to shift Adrienne's mood from despondent to merely poor. It was deliciously fatty, a heavenly richness balanced by the sweet roasted figs. Who wanted to be married and have children when she could be eating foie gras like this with a front-row seat for the sunset? Adrienne forgot her manners. She devoured her appetizer in five lusty bites, and then she helped herself to more caviar. She was starving. #Quote by Elin Hilderbrand
Murky Water quotes by Karen Ranney
#22. The room smelled of lemon wax and the perfume she wore, something delicate and unassuming, not truly mirroring the complex woman she was. She would wear something hinting of roses, or more exotic blooms, a scent that teased the senses.
She hated the mirrors, so he had them removed. He found another desk in the attics, one more suited for a study, but she'd been overjoyed when first viewing it. There was enough space in the sitting room, and that's where it rested, beneath the window looking out over Huntly's glen.
He wished this view of the lake. She would have liked the sight of the birds soaring over the trees or the pale light of dawn reflected in the water. #Quote by Karen Ranney
Murky Water quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#23. Our practice is to water the flower in our loved one, and not bring them more garbage. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Murky Water quotes by Saundra Mitchell
#24. Could you have possibly put more water between us? #Quote by Saundra Mitchell
Murky Water quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#25. No one can know the infinite importance of a tiny drop of water better than a thirsty bird or a little ant or a man of desert! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Murky Water quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#26. Can a broken cistern hold water? #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Murky Water quotes by Matsuo Basho
#27. The old pond, ah! A frog jumps in: The water's sound. #Quote by Matsuo Basho
Murky Water quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#28. The soul is swayed by the waters. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Murky Water quotes by Meg Rosoff
#29. It might cause considerable surprise to the informed observer (who does not exist) to note that Mr B's eyes begin to fill with tears. They overflow and spill down along the deep soft creases of his careworn face as he sits very still in the centre of the unstill world and weeps rivers of salty water for all the lost souls, including his own. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Murky Water quotes by Arshad Ahmad
#30. At last

don't be anything for me
be something which is
Clear as ocean water
Be cloud , but don't rain on me
Be sun, but don't shine for me
Be moon, but don't enlighten me
But be lucid, in what
You are to me
So that I can think, where do you exist #Quote by Arshad Ahmad
Murky Water quotes by Stephen King
#31. Stephen King's not the water, Susannah - he's only the pipe the water runs through. #Quote by Stephen King
Murky Water quotes by Wendelin Van Draanen
#32. I start paying attention to all my movements. How one arm complements the other. And I start thinking about everything I do with two hands. Driving. Golfing. Keyboarding. Even writing really takes two hands. The pen's held in one; the paper's anchored with the other. My mind wanders all over everyday things. Opening a water bottle. Getting dressed. Making a sandwich. Washing dishes. I imagine life with only one hand and realize that it would be hard. In a different way, but still hard ... I rub my hands together, spreading out the soap. And as I massage both sides of my head, I'm thankful for my hands. Thankful to have both of them. #Quote by Wendelin Van Draanen
Murky Water quotes by John Constable
#33. The sound of water escaping from mill-dams, etc., willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts, and brickwork.those scenes made me a painter and I am grateful. #Quote by John Constable
Murky Water quotes by David Wolfe
#34. Every organism exists as a vehicle for the ennoblement of water into consciousness. #Quote by David Wolfe
Murky Water quotes by Holly Black
#35. It's too early for there to be any coffee. I stare dully at the empty pot in the common room, while Sam picks up a jar of instant grounds.
"Don't," I warn him.
He scoops up a heaping spoonful and, heedlessly, shovels it into his mouth. It crunches horribly. Then his eyes go wide.
"Dry," he croaks. "Tongue ... shriveling."
I shake my head, picking up the jar. "It's dehydrated. You're supposed to add water. Good thing you're mostly made of water."
He tries to say something. Brown powder dusts his shirt.
"Also," I tell him, "that's decaf. #Quote by Holly Black
Murky Water quotes by Nicole  Williams
#36. Grant and I were meant to be together … Trying to deny that was like trying to deny a person's thirst for water. It was in my very makeup - he was in my very makeup. I'd love Grant until my last breath, and I knew he'd love me until his last. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Murky Water quotes by Jennie Garth
#37. I'm just taking care of myself: Eating less, exercising more, drinking a lot of coconut water. #Quote by Jennie Garth
Murky Water quotes by Maddy Malhotra
#38. The greatest pollution problem is not found in the atmosphere, water, or soil; but in the minds of 90% of the population, which are contaminated with negative thoughts and beliefs. #Quote by Maddy Malhotra
Murky Water quotes by Chinelo Okparanta
#39. Happiness is like water,' she says. 'We're always trying to grab onto it, but it's always slipping between our fingers. #Quote by Chinelo Okparanta
Murky Water quotes by Christina Stead
#40. men call it the tyranny of tears, it is an iron tyranny- no man could be so cruel, so devishlish,as a woman with her weakness, recrimination, convenient ailments, nerves and tears. We men are all weak as water before the primitive devices of Eve. I was patient at first, many years. ' #Quote by Christina Stead
Murky Water quotes by Jim Dietz
#41. If you want to know why you didn't make a boat
I'll tell you. You're just out there hammering the water. You're killing fish, not rowing. #Quote by Jim Dietz

Murky Water quotes by Haruki Murakami
#44. Being all alone is like the feeling you get when you stand at the mouth of a large river on a rainy evening and watch the water flow into the sea. Have you ever done that? Stand at the mouth of a large river and watch the water flow into the sea? #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Murky Water quotes by Jason Priestley
#45. I miss my boats, and I miss having the ability to be out on the water during the daytime and then go skiing at night. #Quote by Jason Priestley
Murky Water quotes by Carol Guess
#46. Swirled tight, trussed, manic, most trusted. You love hills, swells, waves of sand, waves of water. You love traffic on bridges that might split in two. You love stairs leading to stairs leading to ice cream stands. Shards of pottery as good as a map. You love fractured control towers and the very broken Alaskan Way Viaduct. You love squat corner stores and barber-pole signs. You love the idea of privacy in a city of windows, the idea of light in a city of shadows. #Quote by Carol Guess
Murky Water quotes by Lao-Tzu
#47. There is nothing in the world more soft and weak than water, and yet for attacking things that are firm and strong there is nothing that can take precedence of it; - for there is nothing (so effectual) for which it can be changed. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Murky Water quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#48. What batters you becomes your strength. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Murky Water quotes by Tom Dreesen
#49. We were so poor we had no hot water. But it didn't matter because we had no bathtub to put it in anyway. #Quote by Tom Dreesen

#50. It was reported today that the machine on board the International Space Station that turns urine into drinking water has been fixed. After hearing this, an astronaut said, 'Wait. You mean that wasn't lemon Tang?' #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Murky Water quotes by Christopher McDougall
#51. Iskiate is otherwise known as chia fresca - "chilly chia." It's brewed up by dissolving chia seeds in water with a little sugar and a squirt of lime. In terms of nutritional content, a tablespoon of chia is like a smoothie made from salmon, spinach, and human growth hormone. As tiny as those seeds are, they're superpacked with omega-3S, omega-6S, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants. #Quote by Christopher McDougall
Murky Water quotes by John Green
#52. I liked Augustus Waters. I really, really, really liked him. I liked the way his story ended with someone else. I liked his voice. I liked that he took existentially fraught free throws. I liked that he was a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin. And I liked that he had two names. I've always liked people with two names, because you get to make up your mind what you call them: Gus or Augustus? #Quote by John Green
Murky Water quotes by Jim Harrison
#53. Perhaps swimming was dancing under the water, he thought. To swim under lily pads seeing their green slender stalks wavering as you passed, to swim under upraised logs past schools of sunfish and bluegills, to swim through reed beds past wriggling water snakes and miniature turtles, to swim in small lakes, big lakes, Lake Michigan, to swim in small farm ponds, creeks, rivers, giant rivers where one was swept along easefully by the current, to swim naked alone at night when you were nineteen and so alone you felt like you were choking every waking moment, having left home for reasons more hormonal than rational; reasons having to do with the abstraction of the future and one's questionable place in the world of the future, an absurdity not the less harsh for being so widespread. #Quote by Jim Harrison
