Quiet quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#1. Aya overflows with acheor power. When the accent is taken off it, achedescribes, in English, bone-deep pain. But otherwise acheis blood..fleeing and returning ... red momentum. Acheis, acheis is is, kin to fear
a frayed pause near the end of a thread where the clothe matters too much to fail. The kind of need that takes you across water on nothing but bare feet. Ache is energy, damage, it is constant, in Aya's mind all the time. She was born that way
powerful, half mad, but quiet about it. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Quiet quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#2. Remaining quiet is what is called wisdom-insight. To remain quiet is to resolve the mind in the Self. Telepathy, knowing past, present and future happenings and clairvoyance do not constitute wisdom-insight. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Quiet quotes by Paul Theroux
#3. I think most serious and omnivorous readers are alike- intense in their dedication to the word, quiet-minded, but relieved and eagerly talkative when they meet other readers and kindred spirits. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Quiet quotes by A.R. Cecil
#4. Within that quiet little girl with no apparent needs lived a person with a great imagination. In that shell I lived and grew and planned, until there emerged a way to pull all the loose threads of my life together. #Quote by A.R. Cecil
Quiet quotes by Christie Golden
#5. I am not your kind," Vos said, his voice thick. "I do not feed off vengeance." Truth was quiet. It did not need to shout or to demand. It simply existed. "I am a Jedi. #Quote by Christie Golden
Quiet quotes by Maggie Nelson
#6. One thing they don't tell you 'bout the blues when you got 'em, you keep on fallin' 'cause there ain't no bottom,' sings Emmylou Harris, and she may be right. Perhaps it would help to be told that there is no bottom, save, as they say, wherever and whenever you stop digging. You have to stand there, spade in hand, cold whiskey sweat beaded on your brow, eyes misshapen and wild, some sorry-ass grave digger grown bone-tired of the trade. You have to stand there in the dirty rut you dug, alone in the darkness, in all its pulsing quiet, surrounded by the scandal of corpses. #Quote by Maggie Nelson
Quiet quotes by Kristi Ann Hunter
#7. She was listening differently, now that she'd realized how important it was to seek God in the quiet times in order to know what to cling to in the chaos. #Quote by Kristi Ann Hunter
Quiet quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#8. I love you, Shadow. I want you to go now," Theo said quiet-ly. "You can go, Shadow. Walk with me. C'mon, I'm just ahead of you. Come on, climb away from that old body of yours. Walk with me. Do you see me? I'm just ahead of you on the beach. See? You can now run fast 'cause you have all your legs, again. Can you feel them, boy? #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Quiet quotes by Vir Das
#9. I am honestly very intimidated when I meet new people and they expect me to be the onscreen Vir. On stage, I say a lot of things I might never say in real life; I am never the life of the party. People are quite surprised to see that I am more of a quiet artiste off stage. #Quote by Vir Das
Quiet quotes by Brenna Aubrey
#10. Because oftentimes the quiet mind could see and hear things the busy mind could not. #Quote by Brenna Aubrey
Quiet quotes by Diane Watson
#11. Her legacy was her quiet dignity and instinctive rage against injustice, ... What she determined on the spot was that her dignity would not allow her to be treated unjustly. #Quote by Diane Watson
Quiet quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#12. It's nice to be able to control my smell environment, and I can hear myself think better when it's quiet. It wasn't easy to become a person who's OK being alone on a Saturday night, but I did the work, I got there... #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Quiet quotes by Thomas Davis
#13. Educate, that you might be free. We are most anxious to get the quiet, strong minded people who are scattered throughout the country to see the force of this great truth. #Quote by Thomas Davis
Quiet quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#14. The nations of the earth through the centuries of time have waged war to gain territory. I think ours is the only nation on the face of the earth which has not claimed territory gained out of conflict.

I have stood in the American Military Cemetery in Suresnes, France, where are buried some who died in the First World War. Among those was my eldest brother. It is a quiet and hallowed place, a remembrance of great sacrifice 'to make the world safe for democracy.' No territory was claimed by America as recompense for the sacrifices of those buried there.

I have stood in reverence in the beautiful American military cemetery on the outskirts of Manila in the Philippines. There marble crosses and the Star of David stand in perfect symmetry marking the burial places of some 17,000 Americans who lost their lives in the Second World War. Surrounding that sacred ground are marble colonnades on which are incised the names of another 35,000 who were lost in the battles of the Pacific during that terrible conflict. After so great a sacrifice there was victory, but there was never a claim for territory except for some small islands over which we have had guardianship.

I have been up and down South Korea from the 38th parallel in the North to Pusan in the South, and I have seen the ridges and the valleys where Americans fought and died, not to save their own land but to preserve freedom for people who were strangers to them but whom they acknowledged to be #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Quiet quotes by Pio Of Pietrelcina
#15. Walk in the way of the Lord with simplicity and do not torment your spirit. You must hate your defects, but with a quiet hate, not troublesome and restless. #Quote by Pio Of Pietrelcina
Quiet quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#16. All the quiet corners of the world are the great temples for the wise and for the wisdom! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Quiet quotes by Alexia Casale
#17. You're not listening. Like so many people, you think that the important moments in the story of a life are big and loud, where really they're small and quiet. Someone on the outside would think these moments unworthy of note, but you must recognise the important moments of your own life when they happen. It is very important. #Quote by Alexia Casale
Quiet quotes by Elena Mukhina
#18. I was injured because everyone around me was observing neutrality and keeping silent. After all, they saw that I wasn't ready to perform that element. But they kept quiet. #Quote by Elena Mukhina
Quiet quotes by Andrew Grey
#19. I know you've told me you love me, but what do I mean to you?" Dirk was quiet for a long time, and Lee wondered what Dirk was going to say. "Everything." Dirk answered, and Lee realized that sometimes a single word said it all. #Quote by Andrew Grey
Quiet quotes by Christopher Lilley
#20. Every day is still
A precious thing #Quote by Christopher Lilley
Quiet quotes by Celeste Ng
#21. Hannah, as if she understood her place in the cosmos, grew from quiet infant to watchful child: a child fond of nooks and corners, who curled up in closets, behind sofas, under dangling tablecloths, staying out of sight as well as out of mind, to ensure the terrain of the family did not change. #Quote by Celeste Ng
Quiet quotes by Alden Bell
#22. There is no pain - just travel.
On her knees, she stays still as a supplicant ready for communion. It is very quiet. All of a sudden there is no hurry. There will be time for everything. For the breezes that blow and for the rainwater drying in the gutters, for Maury to find a place of safety in the world, for Malcolm to come back from the dead and ask her about birds and jets. For the big things too, things like beauty and vengeance and honor and righteousness and the grace of God and the slow spilling of the earth from day to night and back to day again.
It is spread out before her, compressed into one single moment. She will be able to see it all -- if she can keep her sleepy eyes open.
It's like a dream where she is. Like a dream where you find yourself underwater and you are panicked for a moment until you realize you no longer need to breathe, and you can stay under the surface forever.
She feels her body falling sideways to the ground. It happens slow - and she expects a crash that never comes because her mind is jumping and it doesn't know which way is up anymore, like the moon above her and the fish below her and her in between floating, like on the surface of the river, floating between sea and sky, the world all skin, all meniscus, and she a part of it too.
Moses Todd told her if you lean over the rail at Niagara Falls it takes your breath away, like turning yourself inside out -- and Lee the hunter told her that one time people used to stu #Quote by Alden Bell
Quiet quotes by Napoleon Hill
#23. It is in quiet that our best ideas occur to us. Don't make the mistake of believing that by a frantic kind of dashing around you are being your most effective and efficient self. Don't assume that you are wasting time when you take time out for thought. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Quiet quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#24. The internet itself led him from one word to the next, giving links, pointing out. When it didn't know something it tactfully kept quiet or stubbornly showed him the same pages, ad nauseam. Then Kunicki had the impression that he had just landed at the border of the known world, at the wall, at the membrane of the heavenly firmament. There wasn't any way to break through it with his head and look through. The internet is a fraud. It promises so much - that it will execute your every command, that it will find you what you're looking for; execution, fulfillment, reward. But in essence that promise is a kind of bait, because you immediately fall into a trance, into hypnosis. The paths quickly diverge, double and multiply, and you go down them, still chasing an aim that will now get blurry and undergo some transformations. You lose the ground beneath your feet, the place where you started from just gets forgotten, and your aim finally vanishes from sight, disappears in the passage of more and more pages, businesses that always promise more than they can give, shamelessly pretending that under the flat plane of the screen there is some cosmos. But nothing could be more deceptive, dear Kunicki. What are you, Kunicki, looking for? What are you aiming at? You feel like spreading out your arms and plunging into it, into that abyss, but there is nothing more deceptive: the landscape turns out to be a wallpaper, you can't go any farther. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Quiet quotes by S.E. Jakes
#25. Come on - let's go back to bed," he told Tom. "What do you think will happen then?" "I'm going to fuck you." "Suppose I wanted to fuck you?" Prophet asked. Tom raised his eyebrow, and Prophet cursed softly, remembering. "You insisted on putting it in there," Tom reminded him with a smirk. "Fuck me." "Yeah, I'm trying, Proph." Tom's voice was quiet but firm. #Quote by S.E. Jakes
Quiet quotes by Bill Bradley
#26. Every time I have some moment on a seashore, or in the mountains, or sometimes in a quiet forest, I think this is why the environment has to be preserved. #Quote by Bill Bradley
Quiet quotes by Anagarika Govinda
#27. Sometimes a glance, a few casual words, fragments of a melody floating through the quiet air of a summer evening, a book that accidentally comes into hands, a poem or memory-laden fragrance may bring about the impulse which changes and determines our whole life. #Quote by Anagarika Govinda
Quiet quotes by Andy Grove
#28. So give me a turbulent world as opposed to a quiet world and I'll take the turbulent one. #Quote by Andy Grove
Quiet quotes by J.K. Rowling
#29. GINNY: After I came out of hospital - everyone ignored me, shut me out - other than, that is, the boy who had everything - who came across the Gryffindor common room and challenged me to a game of Exploding Snap. People think they know all there is to know about you, but the best bits of you are - have always been - heroic in really quiet ways. My point is - after this is over, just remember if you could that sometimes people - but particularly children - just want someone to play Exploding Snap with. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Quiet quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#30. I have lived through much and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet, secluded life in the country with possibility of being useful to people. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Quiet quotes by J.M.K. Walkow
#31. The women were quiet. Blazing Knight checked her computing jobs on the net. A plastic surgeon was found. She could go any time and offer him a chance to repair her rotten parts, to reconstruct her again to a beautiful young female. #Quote by J.M.K. Walkow
Quiet quotes by Melissa Jensen
#32. Leo!
Scusi, Nonna." But he still managed to get a good, quiet curse or two out as he backed his way gingerly through the swinging door.
"Here.I got it." Tina took the beer and glass from me. "Ya know them?"
I nodded.
"She looks like butter wouldn't melt.But her kid..." She pursed brilliantly pink lips. "All that and a bag of baked tofu chips?"
I had to smile a little at the image. "No.He's not...He doesn't act like..." I wasn't entirely sure why I was defending him.He hadn't exactly been the Prince Charming of Dinner Orders. Come to think of it, I couldn't completely vouch for Alex Bainbridge being Prince Charming of Anything. Except my own little Villink fantasy. "Maybe."
"Cute,though."
"Yeah."
"Yeah?" I have no idea what is was Tina saw in my face. Something. "Aw, sweetie." She sighed. "Want me to shake up Daddy's beer a little?"
"No," I answered. "but thanks for the offer. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Quiet quotes by Bryant McGill
#33. The master action to move forward, is a form of inaction; being still and quiet. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Quiet quotes by Brandon Speck
#34. if only you could see yourself now,

you're settling back into a quiet autumn
and you've missed the smell of must, rain, and tobacco
kissed into the corners and couches
of the same house you share with seven others.

you miss the girl who used to sleep on your couch
who had the skull of the bird she is named after
tattooed across her arm.
you are glad you stopped drinking.

it's 2am and you're staying up far too late.
you have an interview for a job in the morning
that you will come to hate in 2 months.
you're not in love the way you expected.

some memories turned into broken drawers
that you chose to store all your knives in,
every time you open them, they always come spilling out towards you.
you miss having sex with people you also love.

precariousness is now the pillow you sleep upon,
and you no longer have such structured repeating romance.
you no longer have such a structured repeating life,
and I know it killed you that you knew it wasn't forever.

i know i can't stop you from panicking,
but it will all make sense.
you repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat repeat
until you realized it was too early to build such a life based on repetition.

you're settling back into a quiet autumn,
and you're stone sober at 4am after a Friday night
while the world starts to makes a strange kind o #Quote by Brandon Speck
Quiet quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#35. Sometimes, it's important to turn off the noise from the outside world. Sometimes, it's critical to stop the banter even within oneself. Intentional solitude and quiet can make us strong for tomorrow. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Quiet quotes by Jen Meyers
#36. Let me tell you something," Marc said. "I'm done with you. I've lost everything because of you." He got to his feet and waved his arms around in the air. "I have no family, no friends-"
"You have us," Sera said in a quiet voice.
"-no life." Marc looked at Sera and shook his head. "I don't want you. I want my old life back. #Quote by Jen Meyers
Quiet quotes by David Small
#37. Mama had her little cough. Once or twice, some quiet sobbing, out of sight ... Or the slamming of kitchen cupboard doors. That was her language. #Quote by David Small
Quiet quotes by William J. Clinton
#38. Throughout the Middle East, there is a great yearning for the quiet miracle of a normal life. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Quiet quotes by Michael McGirr
#39. Perhaps we are yet to feel the full impact of the Y2K bug but so far it's been quiet. #Quote by Michael McGirr
Quiet quotes by Connie Brockway
#40. Why did you refuse to marry me then?" he demanded.
She should be quiet; she should just stay mute. But she was angry and hurt. Only moments before he'd been saying such lovely things; now he was being horrible. "Why can't you help yourself?" she countered, shouting back.
"What?"
"Why are you compelled to come after me?" she demanded, setting her hands on her hips.
For a moment, he just stared at her as if she was daft.
"Because I love you," he finally said, as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.
"What?" She'd waited to hear him say those words for what seemed like an eternity, and now he'd said them just as casually and unconcernedly as he might have said, "I like that dress" or "Spot is a good name for a dog."
"Because I love you," he repeated. "Why else would I?"
"I don't know. Because you're mad?" she suggested. How dare he say he loved her here, in such a manner, with so little fanfare?
He was watching her carefully. "You seem upset."
"Oh. Do I?" she asked sweetly. Behind her, the horse shifted uneasily. Smart horse. "Perhaps it's because I do not believe you. #Quote by Connie Brockway
Quiet quotes by Jonathan Culver
#41. It's just so quiet out here. Not like the quiet in the house. This is different. This is a quiet you can‟t fight, you can't change. This silence is bigger than you and me, we don‟t cause it. It's like Gods refusal to speak. #Quote by Jonathan Culver
Quiet quotes by Katherine Ewell
#42. Volatile repose. The words just kept occurring to me. It was a perfect description of me -quiet, calm, but on the edge of something vast and dark and dangerous and explosive. #Quote by Katherine Ewell
Quiet quotes by Ashley Poston
#43. On your left!" my bodyguard shouts again, skirting around me. "Looks like you only got two speeds - slow and slower!"

I glare after him. "Excuse me?"

Lonny spins around and begins jogging backward. "Prove me wrong, pretty boy."

That is it.

He has followed me. He has towered over me with that serious, terrifyingly calm face of his. He's been a quiet, stalking Weeping Angel for as long as he's been around. But Hades'll freeze over before I let him throw shade like that. #Quote by Ashley Poston
Quiet quotes by Jane Austen
#44. She saw only that he was quiet and onubtrusive, and she liked him for it. He did not disturb the wretchedness of her mind by ill-timed conversation. #Quote by Jane Austen
Quiet quotes by Meister Eckhart
#45. Jesus went into the temple and boldly drove out those that bought and sold. And when all was cleared, there was nobody left but Jesus. Observe this, for it is the same with us: when he is alone he is able to speak in the temple of the soul.
If anyone else is speaking in the temple of your soul, Jesus will keep still, as if he were not at home. And he is not at home wherever there are strange guests-guests with whom the soul holds conversation, guests who are seeking to bargain. If Jesus is to speak and be heard, the soul must be alone and quiet. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Quiet quotes by Ben Marcus
#46. Maybe this was the quiet before the real fucking quiet. #Quote by Ben Marcus
Quiet quotes by Gayle Forman
#47. I wait for the fist of devestation, the collapse of a year's worth of hopes, the roar of sadness. And I do feel it. The pain of losing him. Or the idea of him. But along with that pain is something else, something quiet at first, so I have to strain for it. but when I do, I hear the sound of a door quietly clicking shut. And then the most amazing thing happens: The night is calm, but I feel a rush of wind, as if a thousand other doors have just simultaneously flung open.
I give one last glance towards Willem. Then I turn to Wolfgang. "Finished," I say.
But I suspect the opposite is true. That really, I'm just beginning. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Quiet quotes by Josie Litton
#48. Do you not think you could share this with Dragon?"
"Dragon,who was reluctant enough for this marriage and who now finds himself with a wife he can never hide anything from. Who will always know whether he is telling the truth or not. You think he would welcome such a wife?"
Cymbra thought for a moment. "Well...I don't know...Perhaps if you rubbed his feet."
Rycca stared at her in shock, saw the look of pure deviltry in Cymbra's eyes, and burst out laughing at the same moment as her new sister-in-law-and friend-did the same.They laughed and laughed, not quieting until Lion stirred, gazed at them reproachfully, and opened his mouth to unleash a bellow that reverberated off the nearby hills and sent the sea birds scattering to safety.
"Oh,my heavens," Rycca said when it was finally quiet enough to say anything at all.
Cymbra sighed.She rose, picked up her son, and tried to settle his head back against her shoulder. "It has been ever such.He almost brought the rafters down in the chapel at Hawksforte where he was christened."
"It is most impressive," Rycca said as she, too,stood. "I suppose that accounts for his name."
"It's actually Hakon,to honor Wolf and Dragon's father,but he is called Lion and I suspect he always will be."
Just as he would be satisfied only to be set down. On his own two feet, he toddled off determinedly toward the top of the hill, leaving the bemused women to follow. #Quote by Josie Litton
Quiet quotes by Laozi
#49. Weapons are not proper instruments for gentle people; they use them only when they have no other choice. Peace and quiet are what they value. They do not glory in victory. #Quote by Laozi
Quiet quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#50. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Quiet quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#51. Being silent for me doesn't require being in a quiet place and it doesnt mean not saying words. It means, "receiving in a balanced, noncombative way what is happening." With or without words, the hope of my heart is that it will be able to relax and acknowledge the truth of my situation with compassion. #Quote by Sylvia Boorstein
Quiet quotes by Patti Stanger
#52. I'm very quiet and shy in my personal life, as hard as that is to believe. #Quote by Patti Stanger
Quiet quotes by Colleen Hoover
#53. I stare at the houses, each of them immaculate and manicured to the point of irritation. It makes me want to shoot a gun into the air, just to see all the quiet people inside scramble out. This neighborhood needs a little life breathed into it. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Quiet quotes by Susan May Warren

Quiet quotes by Richelle Mead
#55. We studied our angels for a few moments more, looking at where we had lain side by side in that sweet, quiet moment. I wished what I'd said was true, that we had truly left our mark on the mountain. But I knew that after the next snowfall, our angels would disappear into the whiteness and be nothing more than a memory. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Quiet quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#56. There have always existed three ways of keeping the people loving and loyal. One is to leave them alone, to trust them and not to interfere. This plan, however, has very seldom been
practised, because the politicians regard the public as a cow to be milked, and something must be done to make it stand quiet. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Quiet quotes by John Corey Whaley
#57. When I asked him the meaning of life, Dr. Webb got very quiet and then told me life has no one meaning, it only has whatever meaning each of us puts on our own life. I'll tell you now that I still don't know the meaning of mine. And Lucas Cader, with all his brains and talent, doesn't know the meaning of his, either. But I'll tell you the meaning of all this. The meaning of some bird showing up and some boy disappearing and you knowing all about it. The meaning of this was not to save you, but to warn you instead. To warn you of confusion and delusion and assumption. To warn you of psychics and zombies and ghosts of your lost brother. To warn you of Ada Taylor and her sympathy and mothers who wake you up with vacuums. To warn you of two-foot-tall birds that say they can help, but never do. #Quote by John Corey Whaley
Quiet quotes by Ray Bradbury
#58. They felt the wings on their fingers and elbows flying, then, suddenly plunged in new sweeps of air, the clear autumn river flung them headlong where they must go. Up steps, three, six, nine, twelve! Slap! Their palms hit the library door. Jim and Will grinned at each other. It was all so good, these blowing quiet October nights and the library waiting inside now with its green-shaded lamps and papyrus dust. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Quiet quotes by Oswald Chambers
#59. He . . . rebuked them, and said, 'You do not know what manner of spirit you are of'" (Luke 9:55). The spirit of our Lord in His followers is described in 1 Corinthians 13. Have I been persecuting Jesus by an eager determination to serve Him in my own way? If I feel I have done my duty, yet have hurt Him in the process, I can be sure that this was not my duty. My way will not be to foster a meek and quiet spirit, only the spirit of self-satisfaction. We presume that whatever is unpleasant is our duty! Is that anything like the spirit of our Lord - "I delight to do Your will, O my God . . ." (Psalm 40:8). #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Quiet quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#60. I prefer to live in the country where it's quiet. Woody Allen movies there are dubbed into Italian. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Quiet quotes by Josh McDermitt
#61. For my mind, I try to reduce stress by finding quiet time and meditating. #Quote by Josh McDermitt
Quiet quotes by Susan Bernhardt
#62. In the quiet of the morning
You only have to rise
To feel something's wrong.
Uncontrollable circumstances
Tense the air and you know
Something's going to happen.

--Susan Bernhardt #Quote by Susan Bernhardt
Quiet quotes by Brock Clarke
#63. There's nothing as quiet as that moment before one person is about to tell another something neither of them wants to hear. #Quote by Brock Clarke
Quiet quotes by Lynn Austin
#64. Everyone had forgotten her. But that's the way Penny was
so quiet and unimportant that you could look right at her and never see her. Esther had no idea why Penny always showed up at Grandma's house on Sunday afternoons when they came to visit. She was just one of those nosy neighbors with no life of her own, who watched other people's lives as if watching a movie. #Quote by Lynn Austin
Quiet quotes by T. S. Eliot
#65. What was to be the value of the long looked forward to,
Long hoped for calm, the autumnal serenity
And the wisdom of age? Had they deceived us
Or deceived themselves, the quiet-voiced elders,
Bequeathing us merely a receipt for deceit?
The serenity only a deliberate hebetude,
The wisdom only the knowledge of dead secrets
Useless in the darkness into which they peered
Or from which they turned their eyes. There is, it seems to us,
At best, only a limited value
In the knowledge derived from experience.
The knowledge imposes a pattern, and falsifies,
For the pattern is new in every moment
And every moment is a new and shocking
Valuation of all we have been. We are only undeceived
Of that which, deceiving, could no longer harm. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Quiet quotes by Veronica Rossi
#66. We moved in bursts, with me on point and Marcus at the rear, everyone moving quietly except Sebastian, who was about as stealthy as a giraffe.

"Get quiet and low," I whispered to him.

He ducked his head, taking him to an almost invisible six-foot-two. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Quiet quotes by J.R. Ward
#67. But every once in a while, from out of the blue, someone reaches the quiet place where you spend your private time and changes the way you see yourself #Quote by J.R. Ward
Quiet quotes by Drew Myron
#68. Last night your thin walls invited me to the party next door / reminded me I am a quiet person in a quiet life. #Quote by Drew Myron
Quiet quotes by Jack Heath
#69. Lesson 1: Don't trust anybody.
Lesson 2: Be confident.
Lesson 3: Nothing is ever what it seems.
Lesson 4: When you're outgunned, stay quiet. #Quote by Jack Heath
Quiet quotes by Robert Ludlum
#70. I loathe him. He stands for everything I hate in Washington. The right schools, houses in Georgetown, farms in Virginia, quiet meetings at their clubs. They've got their tight little world and you don't break in
they run it all. The bastards. The superior, self-inflated gentry of Washington. They use other men's intellects, other men's work, wrapping it all into decisions bearing their imprimaturs. And if you're on the outside, you become part of that amorphous entity, a 'damn fine staff.' (Alfred Gillette) #Quote by Robert Ludlum
Quiet quotes by Anne Rice
#71. Ah! I had been screaming. I realized it. Lots of mortals around me, high up in the night, were telling me to be quiet. #Quote by Anne Rice
Quiet quotes by Elizabeth Lim
#72. All they could do was flutter their fans and bat their eyes. The matchmaker Mother hired bragged that they were perfect porcelain dolls. What she didn't say was they had no minds of their own." Shang grimaced at the memory without looking at her. "They'd say anything to make me like them."
How familiar that sounds. Mulan put her hands on her hips. "Not all girls are like that. You have to look at it from their perspective, too. Girls are raised to be pretty and graceful, and quiet." She made a face. "They aren't allowed to speak their minds, and they don't have a choice in who they marry. My parents were lucky that they fell in love, but their marriage was arranged, too. And my mother, she doesn't even belong to her family anymore after they got married. It wasn't my mother's decision, but her family's. They told her that a woman's only role in life is to bear sons."
Shang leaned forward. "You sound quite passionate about this."
His closeness made Mulan hunch back. Remembering who she was pretending to be, she felt her cheeks burn. "I just... I mean, I bet there are some girls who'd make better soldiers than boys. If they were given the chance."

#73. She was so quiet, but she noticed everything. Her eyes tracked the world like it was a book written in a language she could not understand #Quote by Karin Slaughter
Quiet quotes by Scott O'Dell
#74. Below me Rontu was running along the cliffs barking at the screaming gulls. Pelicans were chattering as they finished the blue water. But suddenly I thought of Tutok, and the island seemed very quiet. #Quote by Scott O'Dell
Quiet quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#75. She was less frightened also because life had taken on the quality of a dream, a dream too terrible to be real. It wasn't possible that she, Scarlett O'Hara, should be in such a predicament, with the danger of death about her every hour, every minute. It wasn't possible that the quiet tenor of life could have changed so completely in so short a time. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Quiet quotes by Lionel Shriver
#76. We have explicit expectations of ourselves in specific situations–beyond expectations; they are requirements. Some of these are small: If we are given a surprise party, we will be delighted. Others are sizable: if a parent dies, we will be grief-stricken. But perhaps in tandem with these expectations is the private fear that we will fail convention in the crunch. That we will receive the fateful phone call and our mother is dead and we feel nothing. I wonder if this quiet, unutterable little fear is even keener than the fear of the bad news itself: that we will discover ourselves to be monstrous. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Quiet quotes by Jordan Sara Weatherhead
#77. She has a quiet confidence that screams loud. She is humble, but strong. She is stable, but rebellious. She is giving, but not naive. She chooses her battles wisely. She'll stay silent until it's time to fight...and when that time comes; FIGHT, she does. #Quote by Jordan Sara Weatherhead
Quiet quotes by Jerrel C. Thomas
#78. On A Cold Day, Of A Cold Walking

The day is cold, but clouds are gray.
The grass is white with frost, and may I say?
The sun is coming up, over the hill.
It's so quiet, and so steal.
In the midst of all the trees, by the broke I see.
Something moving in the bush; what could it be?
The frost falls from the dead leaves, as he hops about in the breeze.
It's a bunny, all bundled up with fur, so he will not freeze.
Life keeps on going, even when we think not.
Where are you going, and what is your lot?
Looking for God's Love, from up above?
Jesus will fly to you, like a dove.
He is there; just start talking.
On a cold day, of I called walking. #Quote by Jerrel C. Thomas
Quiet quotes by Jennifer Arnett
#79. Given that media has become fast-paced, readers now want books that show the action and don't just tell you what is happening. Modern readers don't want three pages of descriptions of a farmhouse. They want to hear the door's creak quiet the chirping of crickets out in the cornfield, they want to feel the cool air drift through the house, then they want to see the shadow of a man, gun drawn, standing over the bed of his disloyal lover. #Quote by Jennifer Arnett
Quiet quotes by Melissa Pearl
#80. Not bold, son, convinced, passionate, unable to stay quiet because the fire of truth burns within him. He cannot contain it. That is a faith to aspire to. #Quote by Melissa Pearl

Quiet quotes by Anis Mojgani
#82. When I go, bury me with nothing but my own skin. I spent far too many days trying to outrun this thing called mine. So, if I set myself into your arms would you hold me like the earth, quietly? I am yours. Give me a field, give me a big sky. A mountain. Give me your mouth. I'm just looking for a quiet place that I could die inside of. #Quote by Anis Mojgani
Quiet quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#83. Go in all simplicity; do not be anxious to win a quiet mind, and it will be all the quieter. Do not examine so closely into the progress of your soul. Do not crave too much to be perfect, but let your spiritual life beformed by your duties, and by the actions which are called forth by circumstances. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Quiet quotes by Meister Eckhart
#84. A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him ... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Quiet quotes by George L. Ayers
#85. It wasn't the high thin mountain air that took our breath away. Those stone steps led us up to a place unlike any other on earth. We were overcome by the vision spread out before us; a purely mystical embodiment of space, time, setting, and silence. Up here the noise of our fellow travelers was strangely absent, muffled beneath a mantle of quiet that permeated the mountaintop city. No one was immune. In that first view, in that first moment, every visitor absorbed the essence of Machu Picchu in reverent stillness. #Quote by George L. Ayers
Quiet quotes by Georgette Heyer
#86. I don't know what you may have seen fit to tell her, Venetia, but so far as I understand it you could think of nothing better to do than to beguile her with some farrago about wishing Damerel to strew rose-leaves for you to walk on!"
Damerel, who had resumed his seat, had been staring moodily into the fire, but at these words he looked up quickly. "Rose-leaves?" His eyes went to Venetia's face, wickedly quizzing her. "But my dear girl, at this season?"
"Be quiet, you wretch!" she said, blushing. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Quiet quotes by Samuel Butler
#87. I don't care," he answered, "whether I make the most of my strength or not; I don't know whether I have any strength, but if I have I dare say it will find some way of exerting itself. I will live as I like living, not as other people would like me to live; thanks to my aunt and you I can afford the luxury of a quiet unobtrusive life of self-indulgence," said #Quote by Samuel Butler
Quiet quotes by Marina Keegan
#88. She had the rare combination of being quiet and popular, a code that made her intimidating to younger, fashionable girls and mysterious to older, confident boys. #Quote by Marina Keegan
Quiet quotes by Esther Hizsa
#89. Whenever my mind is muddied by fears, longings, and unsolved problems and my body poised to fight or flee, I try to picture that jar of pond water. As I 'quiet myself' my anxieties sink and clarity emerges: there is no place that God is not, no calamity to be faced without Jesus by my side, and nothing in all creation that can separate me from God's love. #Quote by Esther Hizsa
Quiet quotes by Terry Pratchett
#90. - "Surely you have considered terrorist activity?"
There was another pause. Then the spokesman said, in the quiet tones of someone who has had enough and who is going to quit after this and raise chickens somewhere, "Yes, I suppose we must. All we need to do is find some terrorists who are capable of taking an entire nuclear reactor out of its can while it's running and without anyone noticing. It weighs about a thousand tons and is forty feet high. So they'll be quite strong terrorists. Perhaps you'd like to ring them up, sir, and ask them questions in that supercilious, accusatory way of yours."

Quiet quotes by Andre Dubus III
#91. The house was quiet, my room dark and still. I lay awake and thought of all the good men on TV who'd been shot in the head. I saw again the dead soldiers lying on the ground , and until Pop had cried over us, I hadn't thought much about Jeb and me having to go and fight, too. But in only nine years I'd be as old as the dead, and it'd be my turn, wouldn't it? #Quote by Andre Dubus III
Quiet quotes by John Keats
#92. Four seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of Man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring's honeyed cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness -to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook: -
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forgo his mortal nature. #Quote by John Keats
Quiet quotes by Angie Thomas
#93. When I was twelve, my parents had two talks with me.

One was the usual birds and bees. Well, I didn't really get the usual version. My mom, Lisa, is a registered nurse, and she told me what went where, and what didn't need to go here, there, or any damn where till I'm grown. Back then, I doubted anything was going anywhere anyway. While all the other girls sprouted breasts between sixth and seventh grade, my chest was as flat as my back.

The other talk was about what to do if a cop stopped me.

Momma fussed and told Daddy I was too young for that. He argued that I wasn't too young to get arrested or shot.

"Starr-Starr, you do whatever they tell you to do," he said. "Keep your hands visible. Don't make any sudden moves. Only speak when they speak to you."

I knew it must've been serious. Daddy has the biggest mouth of anybody I know, and if he said to be quiet, I needed to be quiet.

I hope somebody had the talk with Khalil. #Quote by Angie Thomas

#94. I always thought love was about the showstopper moments. No dialogue, no filler. But if the quiet parts are filler, maybe filler's underrated. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Quiet quotes by Haruki Murakami
#95. What I feel for Naoko is a tremendously quiet and gentle and transparent love, but what I feel for Midori is a wholly different emotion. It stands and walks on its own, living and breathing and throbbing and shaking me to the roots of my being. I don't know what to do. I'm confused. I'm not trying to make excuses for myself, but I do believe that I have lived as sincerely as I knew how. I have never lied to anyone, and I have taken care over the years not to hurt other people. And yet I find myself having been tossed into this labyrinth. How #Quote by Haruki Murakami

Quiet quotes by Abigail George
#97. Like water our ideals for writing what seems at first to be a calling to pen a masterpiece, it at first can be pure, fluid even (words can come easily) but we also have to learn to work with what our eyes glaze over as weak substitutes, words that we think have no substance to what we are learning towards. What is every poet's intention? Their intention is to forge, nullify, create, defend, fill the reader with the awe and inspiration that every poet themselves craves. They want to carve a name for themselves in the annals of history, leave a not so quiet legacy behind. Poets want immortality or rather they want their words to become immortal. Perhaps even Marlowe and Shakespeare had discussions about this. #Quote by Abigail George
Quiet quotes by Deb Caletti
#98. We are all a volume on a shelf of a library, a story unto ourselves, never possibly described with one word or even very accurately with thousands. A person is never as quiet or unrestrained as they seem, or as bad or good, as vulnerable or as strong, as sweet or as fiesty; we are thickly layered, page upon lying page, behind simple covers. And love - it is not the book itself, but the binding. It can rip us apart or hold us together. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Quiet quotes by Jill Shalvis

Quiet quotes by E.J. Kirk
#100. With me the process is much more like bird-watching than like either talking or building. I see pictures. Some of the pictures have a common flavour, almost a common smell, which groups them together. Keep quiet and watch and they will begin joining themselves up.(quoting C.S. Lewis) #Quote by E.J. Kirk
Quiet quotes by Daniel Tammet
#101. I've got a quiet voice. I think it's because as a child I didn't speak very much. I used to put my fingers in my ears to feel the silence, which was like a lovely trickling motion in my head. #Quote by Daniel Tammet
Quiet quotes by David Foster Wallace

Quiet quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#103. They went Indian file. First came the scouts, clever, graceful, quiet. They had rifles. Next came the antitank gunner, clumsy and dense, warning Germans away with a Colt .45 automatic in one hand and a trench knife in the other.
Last came Billy Pilgrim, empty-handed, bleakly ready for death. Billy was preposterous - six feet and three inches tall, with a chest and shoulders like a box of kitchen matches. He had no helmet, no overcoat, no weapon, and no boots. On his feet were cheap, low-cut civilian shoes which he had bought for his father's funeral. Billy had lost a heel, which made him bob up-and-down, up-and-down. The involuntary dancing, up-and-down, up-and-down, made his hip joints sore. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Quiet quotes by Sonali Dev
#104. But how could you have been so calm when that cop was treating you that way?" She hadn't been able to keep the question inside.
He had laughed then, as though she'd made the most tasteless of jokes. A sound so harsh it had gouged out everything she had been up until that moment. "Maybe because I don't have a 'U.S. Attorney brother' card to pull."
She'd deserved that. "So you just let them do what they want?"
"Yes! I'm not keen on the idea of a bullet in my head, or finding my arse dumped in jail. I have a sister who needs medical care and has absolutely no one to take care of her if I disappear. So, yes, they can do whatever the bloody hell they want."
After that she'd stayed quiet. #Quote by Sonali Dev
Quiet quotes by Jane Harper
#105. The the street was quiet again. Country quiet.

That's partly what took city natives like the Whitlams by surprise, Falk thought: the quiet. He could understand them seeking out the idyllic country lifestyle, a lot of people did. The idea had an enticing, wholesome glow when it was weighed out from the back of a traffic jam, or while crammed into a gardenless apartment. They all had the same visions of breathing fresh clean air and knowing their neighbors. The kids would eat home-grown veggies and learn the value of an honest day's work.

On arrival, as the empty moving truck disappeared form sight, they looked around and were always taken aback by the crushing vastness of the open land. The space was the thing that hit them first. There was so much of it. There was enough to drown in. To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.

Soon, they discovered that the veggies didn't grow as willingly as they had in the city window box. That every single green shoot had to be coaxed and prized from the reluctant soil, and the neighbors were too busy doing the same on an industrial scale to muster much cheer in their greetings. There was no daily bumper-to-bumper commute, but there was also nowhere much to drive to.

Falk didn't blame the Whitlams, he'd seen it many times before when he was a kid. The arrivals looked around at the barrenness and the scale and the sheer bloody hardne #Quote by Jane Harper
Quiet quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#106. There were people thrice her size on the Trenton platform and she looked admiringly at one of them, a woman in a very short skirt. She thought nothing of slender legs shown off in miniskirts
it was safe and easy, after all, to display legs of which the world approved
but the fat woman's act was about the quiet conviction that one shared only with oneself, a sense of rightness that others failed to see. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Quiet quotes by Elaine Paige

Quiet quotes by Neil Hilborn
#109. You told me once that you would break my heart.
I asked you not to be such a goddamn
cliché, but then you left me because part
of you was still broken. You say some man

pried open the cracks of you, dug holes where
once there were none, so now you just cannot
love me how I deserve, and darling, therein
lies the problem: you can you can you can

you can you can you can you can you can.
Your reasons why are no good reasons why.
We said we should not fall in love and then
we showed each other our most quiet

scars: my wrists, your upper thighs, and now you say
this too easily: you say you cannot stay. #Quote by Neil Hilborn

Quiet quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#111. Yet there is no gainsaying but that it must have been somewhat sweeter in that dewy morning of creation, when it was young and fresh, when the feet of the tramping millions had not trodden its grass to dust, nor the din of the myriad cities chased the silence forever away. Life must have been noble and solemn to those free-footed, loose-robed fathers of the human race, walking hand in hand with God under the great sky. They lived in sunkissed tents amid the lowing herds. They took their simple wants from the loving hand of Nature. They toiled and talked and thought; and the great earth rolled around in stillness, not yet laden with trouble and wrong. Those days are past now. The quiet childhood of Humanity, spent in the far-off forest glades and by the murmuring rivers, is gone forever; and human life is deepening down to manhood amid tumult, doubt, and hope. Its age of restful peace is past. It has its work to finish and must hasten on. What that work may be - what this world's share is in the great design - we know not, though our unconscious hands are helping to accomplish it. Like the tiny coral insect working deep under the dark waters, we strive and struggle each for our own little ends, nor dream of the vast fabric we are building up for God. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome

#114. I remain quiet. I am determined to close myself to the world, to tighten my heart and hold what has not yet been stolen from me. I cannot let myself slip away. I will hold what I am inside, and keep my hands tight around all the things I have seen and heard, and felt. #Quote by Hannah Kent

Quiet quotes by Sandra Brown
#116. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown

Quiet quotes by Cassandra Clare
#123. James had thought he wanted a friend like himself, a parabatai who was shy and quiet and would enter in on James's feelings about the terror of parties. Instead here was Matthew, who was the life and soul of every party, who made dreadful hairbrush decisions, who was unexpectedly and terribly kind. Who had tried to be his friend and kept trying, even though James did not know what trying to be a friend looked like. Who could see James, even when he was a shadow. Yes, #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Quiet quotes by J.R. Ward
#124. The pause that followed was one she couldn't interpret. Maybe he was pissed she was interfering?
"I just want to make sure you're okay."
"Do you do this with patients a lot?"
"Yes," she lied.
"Havers know you're checking his work?"
"Did he even look at your veins?"
Rehvenge's laugh was low. "I would rather you had called for a different reason."
"I don't understand," she said tightly.
"What? That someone might want to have something to do with you outside of work? You're not blind. You've seen yourself in mirrors. And surely you know you're smart, so it's not all just pretty window dressing."
As far as she was concerned, he was speaking in a foreign language. "I don't understand why you're not taking care of yourself."
"Hmmm." He laughed softly, and she felt the purr as well as heard it in her ear. "Oh…so maybe this is a pretense just so I can see you again."
"Look, the only reason I called was - "
"Because you needed an excuse. You shut me down in the exam room, but really wanted to talk to me. So you called about my arm to get me on the phone. And now you have me." That voice dropped even lower. "Do I get to pick what you do with me?"
She stayed quiet. Until he said, "Hello?"
"Are you finished? Or do you want to run around in circles a little longer, reading into what I'm doing here?"
There was a beat of silence, and then he broke out in a rich baritone belly laugh. "I knew there was m #Quote by J.R. Ward
Quiet quotes by Ann Petry
#125. The snow fell softly on the street. It muffled sound. It sent people scurrying homeward, so that the street was soon deserted, empty, quiet. And it could have been any street in the city, for the snow laid a delicate film over the sidewalk, over the brick of the tired, old buildings; gently obscuring the grime and the garbage and the ugliness. #Quote by Ann Petry

Quiet quotes by Martin Scorsese
#132. I'm in a different chapter of my life. As time goes by and I grow older, I find that I need to just be quiet and think. There have been periods when I've locked myself away for days, but now it's different - I'm married and we have a daughter who is in my office the whole time. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Quiet quotes by Ree Drummond
#133. Once the wedding gift was out of the way, Marlboro Man and I had to check one last item off our list before we entered the Wedding Zone: premarital counseling. It was a requirement of the Episcopal church, these one-hour sessions with the semiretired interim priest who led our church at the time. Logically, I understood the reasoning behind the practice of premarital discussions with a man of the cloth. Before a church sanctions a marriage union, it wants to ensure the couple grasps the significance and gravity of the (hopefully) eternal commitment they're making. It wants to give the couple things to think about, ideas to ponder, matters to get straight. It wants to make sure it's not sending two young lovers into what could be an avoidable domestic catastrophe. Logically, I grasped the concept.
Practically, however, it was an uncomfortable hour of sitting across from a sweet minister who meant well and asked the right questions, but who had clearly run out of juice in the zest-for-marriage department. It was emotional drudgery for me; not only did I have to rethink obvious things I'd already thought about a thousand times, but I also had to watch Marlboro Man, a quiet, shy country boy, assimilate and answer questions put to him by a minister he'd only recently met on the subject of love, romance, and commitment, no less. Though he was polite and reverent, I felt for him. These were things cowboys rarely talked about with a third party. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Quiet quotes by George Eliot
#134. Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them: it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in. Even idleness is eager now - eager for amusement; prone to excursion-trains, art museums, periodical literature, and exciting novels; prone even to scientific theorizing and cursory peeps through microscopes. Old Leisure was quite a different personage. He only read one newspaper, innocent of leaders, and was free from that periodicity of sensations which we call post-time. He was a contemplative, rather stout gentleman, of excellent digestion; of quiet perceptions, undiseased by hypothesis; happy in his inability to know the causes of things, preferring the things themselves. He lived chiefly in the country, among pleasant seats and homesteads, and was fond of sauntering by the fruit-tree wall and scenting the apricots when they were warmed by the morning sunshine, or of sheltering himself under the orchard boughs at noon, when the summer pears were falling. He knew nothing of weekday services, and thought none the worse of the Sunday sermon if it allowed him to sleep from the text to the blessing; liking the afternoon service best, because the prayers were the shortest, and not ashamed to say so; for he had an easy, jolly conscience, broad-backed like himself, and able to carry a great deal of beer or port-wine, not being made squeamish by doubts and qualms and lofty aspirations. #Quote by George Eliot
Quiet quotes by Chelsea Bieker
#135. I decided then to tell Artichoke to be ugly. To make herself as ugly as possible and not worry too much about beauty or what anyone thought of her. To be unpainted, to live in the breeze and stand under waterfalls and not be worried over the height of mountains, of quiet trails deep in the woods. To not be scared of roads slick with rain, of valleys dry in drought. I'd tell her 'no fear' and she'd know it was the deepest truth and she would be everything I was not. She would be wild and free. And I wouldn't worry because I knew the secret. That through all of her ugliness, all her hiking and running and jumping and falling and getting back up and saying no and saying what she wanted, her scraped hands, her freckled skin, her smart brain, she would of course be beautiful. #Quote by Chelsea Bieker
Quiet quotes by Heron Carvic
#136. Quite. Well., I haven't met the lady myself, but before she came we just had nice quiet larcenies, dopings, muggings, and the like. But since her arrival, it's been shootings, abductions, and now murders--the lot. I suppose you wouldn't like to take her back to London with you and give us all a rest? #Quote by Heron Carvic

#141. It is the attitude of some leaders of God's people; they continually scold others, hurl reproaches at them, tell them to be quiet ... 'Madam, take your crying child out of the church as I am preaching.' As if the cries of a child were not a sublime homily. #Quote by Pope Francis
Quiet quotes by Laura Z. Hobson
#142. Any life he'd ever heard of, his own included, was burdened with emotions - love, loss, jobs, jealousy, money, death, pain. But if you were Jewish, always there was this extra one, the added pull at your endurance, the one more thing. There was that line in Thoreau about 'quiet desperation' - that was indeed true of most men. But for some men and women, for some fathers and mothers and children, the world still contrived that one extra test, endless and unrelenting. #Quote by Laura Z. Hobson
Quiet quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#143. [Janco] paused. His eyes held a distant gleam as if seeing into his past. 'My first practice was a shock. I was a cocky smart aleck
'
[Opal] 'Was?'
[J] 'Be quiet. I'm telling a story here. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Quiet quotes by William Hazlitt
#144. One of the pleasantest things in the world is going on a journey; but I like to go by myself. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Quiet quotes by Debbie Ford
#145. To get past your ego and its defenses you need to get quiet, be brave, and listen to your inner voices ... When you embrace the messages of each aspect of your shadow, you begin to take back the power you've given to others and form a bond of trust with your authentic self. The voices of your unembraced qualities, when allowed into your consciousness, will bring you back into balance and harmony with your natural rhythms. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Quiet quotes by Aurora A. Ambrose
#146. Be Sure to Take Time Take time to think: it is the source of great ideas. Take time to read: it is the foundation of wisdom. Take time to joke and play: it is the secret of staying young. Take time to be quiet: it is the opportunity to hear God. Take time to pray: it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to see others' needs: it is the opportunity to help others. Take time to love and be loved: it is God's greatest gift. Take time to praise God: It is the road to worship. Take time to laugh: it is the music of the soul. #Quote by Aurora A. Ambrose

Quiet quotes by Sara Winters
#148. He could never know how beautiful he was in these moments, and Devin couldn't bring himself to say anything. What would he say? "I've always noticed you, but never thought I deserved someone like you?"
That wasn't right. It was cheesy and over-the-top, and still somehow inadequate to describe the maelstrom of emotions he felt when he was around Sam. Mike made it seem simple, but it wasn't. This wasn't like hooking up with a hot guy he'd met on the dance floor, it was Sam. The sweet, cerebral, quiet man who'd been his friend for nearly two years and somehow managed to sneak out of the friend box into this no man's land where every word, every gesture was a promise Devin wasn't sure he could keep. #Quote by Sara Winters
Quiet quotes by Richard E. Byrd
#149. At the end only two things really matter to a man, regardless of who he is; and they are the affection and understanding of his family. Anything and everything else he creates are insubstantial; they are ships given over to the mercy of the winds and tides of prejudice. but the family is an everlasting anchorage, a quiet harbor where a man's ships can be left to swing to the moorings of pride and loyalty. #Quote by Richard E. Byrd
Quiet quotes by James S.A. Corey
#150. Oh shit, I can see Gomez," Alex said over the comm. "He's down. Aw, you goddammed bastards! They're shootin' him while he's down! Son of a bitch!" The ship stopped moving, and Alex said in a quiet voice, "Suck on this, asshole." The ship vibrated for half a second, then paused before continuing toward the lock. "Point defense cannons?" Holden asked. "Summary roadside justice," Alex grunted back. Holden #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Quiet quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
#151. There is a quiet humor in Yiddish and a gratitude for every day of life, every crumb of success, each encounter of love ... In a figurative way, Yiddish is the wise and humble language of us all, the idiom of a frightened and hopeful humanity. #Quote by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Quiet quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#152. The nation, taken as a whole, will be less brilliant, less glorious, and perhaps less strong; but the majority of the citizens will enjoy a greater degree of prosperity, and the people will remain quiet, not because it despairs of amelioration, but because it is conscious of the advantages of its condition. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Quiet quotes by Lao-Tzu
#153. Express yourself completely. Then keep quiet. Be like the forces of nature; When it blows, there is only wind; When it rains, there is only rain; When the clouds pass, the sun shines through. #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Quiet quotes by K.M. Alexander
#154. The spectacle shop was old, long, and narrow, with a glass front and a small thin door that opened onto a somewhat busy avenue in the antiques district on the South side of Lovat. It was a quiet enough area, away from the rougher warrens, but not particularly elevated. Across the cramped street hawkers sold vases, while up the road outside a rug merchant's shop a man sold antique suits. There was also Dubois' new storefront to the East; he dealt in religious artifacts and trinkets. The shopkeep hadn't liked when he had moved in; it had somehow changed the feel of the warren. Odd folks had started showing up shortly after Saint Olmstead Religious Antiques opened: black-clad priests, Hasturians in yellow robes, and a few Deeper cultists dressed in their gray sackcloth rags. It had set the entire warren on edge. #Quote by K.M. Alexander
Quiet quotes by Lord Dunsany
#155. O gods, rob not the earth of the dim hush that hangs round all Your temples, bereave not all the world of old romance, take not the glamour from the moonlight nor tear the wonder out of the white mists in every land; for, O ye gods of the childhood of the world, when You have left the earth You shall have taken the mystery from the sea and all its glory from antiquity, and You shall have wrenched our hope from the dim future. There shall be no strange cities at night time half understood, nor songs in the twilight, and the whole of the wonder shall have died with last year's flowers in little gardens or hill-slopes leaning south; for with the gods must go the enchantment of the plains and all the magic of dark woods, and something shall be lacking from the quiet of early dawn. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Quiet quotes by Katy Evans
#156. Have you ever been anyone's?" I ask, a feathery whisper in the quiet bedroom. He lifts his head to mine, and I want him so bad I feel consumed inside, like he's already possessed my soul, and now my soul aches for him to possess my body. A powerful emotion tightens his features as he reaches out to cradle my cheek in his big hand, and there's an unexpected fierceness in his eyes, in his touch, as he cups me. "No. And you?" The calluses in his palm rasp on my skin, and I find myself tucking my cheek deeper into them. "I've never wanted to." "Neither have I." The moment is intimate. #Quote by Katy Evans
Quiet quotes by David Mitchell
#157. On bad days you wonder, 'Why not just back off from the war and lead a quiet metalife? #Quote by David Mitchell
Quiet quotes by Mooji
#158. Don't be too quick to interpret the moment. Just keep quiet. My encouragement would always be: never think anything is against you, everything is blessing. Why should it be different? Just be quiet. Let it all work itself out. #Quote by Mooji
Quiet quotes by Sara Zarr
#159. I don't yell back at my mother. When I'm angry or scared or upset, I don't yell. I stay quiet. I've seen how she is, how she would get with Kent and with me and with other people, life if someone at the pharmacy got in the wrong line or asked too long a question, or if someone on the bus accidentally bumped her. I've watched her my whole life, the way people react to her. It doesn't actually help you get what you want, yelling and being like that. It only makes people think bad of you. #Quote by Sara Zarr
Quiet quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#160. The woods decay, the woods decay and fall, The vapours weep their burthen to the ground, Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath, And after many summer dies the swan. Me only cruel immortality Consumes: I wither slowly in thine arms, Here at the quiet limit of the world. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Quiet quotes by Shannon Messenger
#161. The right road is rarely the easy road. And no war is ever fought without casualties."
"Is that what this is?" Sophie asked. "A war?"
"Unfortunately, yes. A quiet war to stop a louder one from raging. You may hate me for asking this of him, but this is the cold reality we all face. We cannot control the actions of others, nor stop them from disappointing us. We can only use the anger and pain to fuel us. To help us rise above. #Quote by Shannon Messenger
Quiet quotes by Dean Koontz
#162. There's something you need to understand, Jonah. For every person who's stealing and setting fires and turning over police cars, there are three or four others in the same neighborhood who want no part of it, who're more afraid of lawbreakers than they are of the law." "Doesn't look that way." "Because the TV only shows you the ones who're doing it. The news isn't all the news, Jonah. Not by a long shot. It's just what reporters want to tell you about. Riots come and go, wars come and go, but under the tumult, day after day, century after century, millions of people are doing nice things for one another, making sacrifices, mostly small things, but it's all those little kindnesses that hold civilization together, all those people who live quiet lives and never make the news. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Quiet quotes by Ken Bruen
#163. Friday night, I resolved to have a quiet time. Two pints and a chips carry-home. Alas, the pints got away from me and I hit the top shelf. #Quote by Ken Bruen
Quiet quotes by Gayle Forman
#164. Mia, Mia, Mia," he said, stroking the tendrils of my hair that had escaped from the wig. "This is the you I like. You definitely dressed sexier and are, you know, blond, and that's different. But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I'll be in love with tomorrow. I love that you're fragile and tough, quiet and kick-ass. Hell, you're one of the punkest girls I know, no matter who you listen to or what you wear. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Quiet quotes by Frederick The Great
#165. The cruel man is of misanthropic temperament, and is a man of moods, oscillating from quiet brooding to sudden explosions. If a man like this does not fight this unhappy provision of his soul during his youth, under no circumstances could he a void becoming furious - and foolish. There are those who would leave it up to God, but to ensure justice on the earth, and not fob it off to the Divinity, it is mandatory that people know both virtue and its benefits, since the virtues lead to unity among them, not the war of all against all. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to conserve them, and show that crime can only return misfortunes and destruction, including of the criminal himself. Who is the last victim of his crimes. #Quote by Frederick The Great
Quiet quotes by Winston O. Abbott
#166. Beauty gathered in the brightness of the sunny hours - is often best remembered in the quiet dark. #Quote by Winston O. Abbott
Quiet quotes by Rick Riordan
#167. I wish you'd be quiet," I muttered. "I also wish we had snowshoes." "You'd need Uller for that," said the goat. "Who?" "The god of snowshoes," said Otis. "He invented them. Also archery and ... I don't know, other stuff. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Quiet quotes by Rikki De La Vega
#168. So I'm guessing," he went on, pointing with his fork, "that you're in a pretty good position to answer the question of where to draw the line between seduction and sexual harassment. Is it how you say things, or what you say?"
She pondered with a quiet hum for a few seconds before explaining: "Some think it has to do with the artistry of delivery, but in fact you can have an eloquent harasser and a clumsy flirt. The difference is the message. Both begin with the same basic premise: 'I desire you.' Where they diverge is in what follows that premise. The harasser says: 'I desire you, and I'm going to keep at you until you give in.' But the seducer's message puts the power into the hands of the person being desired, with the message being: 'I desire you, and if the feeling is mutual, come and get it.' The harasser demands, the seducer invites. That's the difference. #Quote by Rikki De La Vega
Quiet quotes by Conor McPherson
#169. I would love to make a 1830's period piece, a house in the country, a classic atmospheric haunted house movie, visually it would be so beautiful, the costumes, the candles, the darkness, and the quiet, no radio, to TV, the clock ticking away. #Quote by Conor McPherson
Quiet quotes by Confucius
#170. Wisdom delights in water; love delights in hills. Wisdom is stirring; love is quiet. Wisdom is merry; love grows old. #Quote by Confucius

#172. Below a certain point, if you keep too quiet, people no longer see you as thoughtful or deep; they simply forget you. #Quote by Douglas Coupland

#173. The air was so quiet he could hear the broken pieces of the sun knocking in the water. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Quiet quotes by Billy Graham
#174. There is going on in the world today a quiet, bloodless revolution. It has no fanfare, no newspaper coverage, no propaganda; yet it is changing the course of thousands of lives. It is restoring purpose and meaning to life as men of all races and nationalities are finding peace with God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Quiet quotes by Terry Pratchett
#175. The Death of the Disc was a traditionalist who prided himself on his personal service and spent most of the time being depressed because this was not appreciated. He would point out that no one feared death itself, just pain and separation and oblivion, and that it was quite unreasonable to take against someone just because he had empty eye sockets and a quiet pride in his work. He still used a scythe, he'd point out, while the Deaths of other worlds had long ago invested in combine harvesters. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Quiet quotes by Frances Hardinge
#176. Ordinary life did not stop just because kings rose and fell, Mosca realized. People adapted. If the world turned upside down, everyone ran and hid in their houses, but a very short while later, if all seemed quiet, they came out again and started selling each other potatoes. #Quote by Frances Hardinge

Quiet quotes by Joyce DiDonato
#179. You ... are now servants to the ear that needs quiet solace, and the eye that needs the consolation of beauty, servants to the mind that needs desperate repose or pointed inquiry, to the heart that needs invitation to flight or silent understanding, and to the soul that needs safe landing, or fearless, relentless enlightenment. #Quote by Joyce DiDonato
Quiet quotes by Katy Evans
#180. And my brain goes quiet and my heart is calm and my life is at a standstill, and the pendulum that I am, all the swinging to and fro, finally stops and I feel like I finally found my center. #Quote by Katy Evans
Quiet quotes by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
#181. Crazy Horse was a new kind of leader to emerge after the Civil War, at the beginning of the army's wars of annihilation in the northern plains and the Southwest. Born in 1842 in the shadow of the sacred Paha Sapa (Black Hills), he was considered special, a quiet and brooding child. Already the effects of colonialism were present among his people, particularly alcoholism and missionary influence. Crazy Horse became a part of the Akicita, a traditional Sioux society that kept order in villages and during migrations. It also had authority to make certain that the hereditary chiefs were doing their duty and dealt harshly with those who did not. #Quote by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
Quiet quotes by Kevin Hearne
#182. Meditating and getting to a quiet place when alone was somehow much different from feeling the Force in combat or while piloting or practicing against drones. When I opened myself to the Force in those situations, it was more of an instinctive process, and I felt guided and warned in an almost effortless way, perhaps owing to a combat-ready state of action and reaction where there is no time for thought, and a profound sense of personal danger. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Quiet quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#183. You can go back to blacksmithing in Hintindar and live a quiet happy life. Do me a favor and marry some pretty farm girl and train your son to beat the crap out of imperial knights."
"Sure," Hadrian told him. "And with any luck he'll make friends with a cynical burglar who'll do nothing but torment him. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Quiet quotes by Bonnie Burnard
#184. The magnificent houses, the three old-money brick houses, each with a small turret and a wraparound porch, had been built uptown near the churches when the town was younger and smaller, before the Great War. The wraparound porches were there to hold rainy-day children and morning tea carts and quiet late-evening converstion, cosy, discreet conversation which could not easily take place in front rooms or kitchens or bedrooms, certainly not on the street. #Quote by Bonnie Burnard
Quiet quotes by Rachel Neumeier
#185. It is poor solace to speak of the passing of time and grief," the master said. His quiet voice had gone somehow bleak, though Araene could not decide where in his unchanging tone the difference lay. "We do not wish our grief to fade, for it marks the love and honor in which we held our lost kinsmen. Nevertheless, permit me to assure you that while you may find peace a barren desert, yet eventually it may bloom. #Quote by Rachel Neumeier
Quiet quotes by Etty Hillesum
#186. Sometimes my day is crammed full of people and talk and yet I have the feeling of living in utter peace and quiet. And the tree outside my window, in the evenings, is a greater experience than all those people put together. #Quote by Etty Hillesum
Quiet quotes by Amie Kaufman
#187. But we have seen how brightly light shines in the dark, how sweetly music fills the quiet. All these years you have known only shadow and silence, and we have so much to show you. To save you.
I am not worth saving.
We are all worth saving.
How can you know?
We cannot ever know, not truly.
But we have faith. #Quote by Amie Kaufman
Quiet quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#188. Rockton is no more Oliver than Churchgrove is Lord Kirkwood," Lady Minerva said stoutly.
"Then why did you steal my name for him?" Oliver asked.
"It's not quite your name, old chap," Lord Gabriel said. "And you know perfectly well that Minerva likes to tweak your nose from time to time."
"Stop calling me 'old,' blast it," Oliver grumbled. "I'm not some doddering fool."
"How old are you, anyway?" Maria asked him, amused by his vanity.
"Thirty-five." Mrs. Plumtree had said little until now, but apparently the conversation had piqued her interest. "That's long past the age when a man should marry, don't you think, Miss Butterfield?"
Aware of Oliver's gaze on her, Maria chose her words carefully. "I suppose it depends on the man. Papa didn't marry until he was nearly that age. He was too busy fighting in the Revolutionary War to court anyone."
When the blood drained from Mrs. Plumtree's face, Oliver's eyes held a glint of triumph. "Ah, yes, the Revolutionary War. Did I forget to mention, Gran, that Mr. Butterfield was a soldier in the Continental Marines?"
The table got very quiet. Lady Minerva focused on eating her soup. Lady Celia took several sips of wine, one after another, and Lord Jarret stared into his soup bowl as if it contained the secret to life. The only real sound punctuating the silence was Lord Gabriel's muttered "bloody hell."
Clearly, there was some undercurrent here that Maria didn't understand. Oliver was watching hi #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Quiet quotes by Samuel Beckett
#189. Morning is the time to hide. They wake up, hale and hearty, their tongues hanging out for order, beauty and justice, baying for their due. Yes, from eight or nine till noon is the dangerous time. But towards noon things quiet down, the most implacable are sated, they go home, it might have been better but they've done a good job, there have been a few survivors but they'll give no more trouble, each man counts his rats. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Quiet quotes by Jane Austen
#190. Nothing was so likely to do her good as a little quiet cheerfulness at home. #Quote by Jane Austen
Quiet quotes by Gautam Gambhir
#191. Yes, I'm the same grumpy Gautam who smiles very less on the field. I go very quiet before going into the match. I guess it works for me, though my team-mates keep telling me it is just a game. #Quote by Gautam Gambhir
Quiet quotes by G.A. Aiken
#192. Adjusting her frames, Dagmar said, "It's time for you to stop talking."
"I don't want to."
"But you will stop talking."
"We're on my territory now, Beast. You can't strut around here and pretend you rule all - "
"Quiet."
"But - "
She raised her right forefinger.
"She - "
Dagmar raised that damn forefinger higher.
"It's just - "
Now she brandished both forefingers. "Stop."
He gave Dagmar his best pout, which she completely ignored, turning her back on him to again face Annwyl. "Think there might be some place private we can talk, my lady?"
Gwenvael's mouth dropped open. "Did you just dismiss - "
Dagmar held up that damn forefinger again but didn't even bother to look at him when she did.
Annwyl's grin was wide and bright. A smile Gwenvael hadn't seen from her in far too long. "Right this way, Lady Dagmar."
"Thank you." Dagmar brusquely snapped her fingers at Gwenvael. "And don't forget to bring my bags up once I get a room, Defiler."
Annwyl fairly glowed as she followed Dagmar from the room, her smile growing by the second. Gwenvael faced his sister. "It's Ruiner, which is a vast difference.So get it right!" he yelled at the empty doorway. #Quote by G.A. Aiken
Quiet quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#193. On Generosity

On our own, we conclude:
there is not enough to go around

we are going to run short
of money
of love
of grades
of publications
of sex
of beer
of members
of years
of life

we should seize the day
seize our goods
seize our neighbours goods
because there is not enough to go around

and in the midst of our perceived deficit
you come
you come giving bread in the wilderness
you come giving children at the 11th hour
you come giving homes to exiles
you come giving futures to the shut down
you come giving easter joy to the dead
you come – fleshed in Jesus.

and we watch while
the blind receive their sight
the lame walk
the lepers are cleansed
the deaf hear
the dead are raised
the poor dance and sing

we watch
and we take food we did not grow and
life we did not invent and
future that is gift and gift and gift and
families and neighbours who sustain us
when we did not deserve it.

It dawns on us – late rather than soon-
that you "give food in due season
you open your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing."

By your giving, break our cycles of imagined scarcity
override our presumed deficits
quiet our anxieties of lack
transform our perceptual field to see
the abundance………mercy upon mercy
#Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Quiet quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#194. A spiritual desert is spreading - an interior emptiness, an unnamed fear, a quiet sense of despair. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI

#196. Introverts understand; the loneliest human in history was just happy to have a few minutes of peace and quiet. #Quote by Randall Munroe
Quiet quotes by Joseph A. Schumpeter
#197. Those revolutions are not strictly incessant; they occur in discrete rushes which are separated from each other by spans of comparative quiet. The process as a whole works incessantly however, in the sense that there always is either revolution or absorption of the results of revolution, both together forming what are known as business cycles. #Quote by Joseph A. Schumpeter
Quiet quotes by Karen Ann Hopkins
#198. I waited for my body to respond to her nearness. Hoping that my heart would beat wildly or that wonderful tingling feeling would begin to surge from my groin. But my insides were quiet, almost ... bored. #Quote by Karen Ann Hopkins
Quiet quotes by Jillian Hunter
#199. You look even better than you did before," he added in a quiet voice. "I'm the one returning to the party with his rhubarb at full rise. #Quote by Jillian Hunter
Quiet quotes by Vasily Grossman
#200. Byerozkin knew very well that the man with no quiet at the bottom of his soul was unable to endure for long, however courageous he might be in combat. He thought of fear or cowardice, on the other hand, as something temporary, something that could be cured as easily as a cold. #Quote by Vasily Grossman
