#4. You'll drive a saint into chaining you to the bed," Jack muttered, and then trying not to let his annoyance show, he continued, "The sex is good. No, wait. Sex with you blows my fucking mind. You're smart, sexy and sassy - you don't take shit from me - and I crave to be with you even when all my survival instincts tell me to run the other way. You're the most beautiful woman I've ever fucking laid eyes on." He grasped both her hands and brought them together over his chest. "Now, Miss Pierce, will you stay until Friday?"
Maia burst into laughter. "Okay, that will do. I'll stay until Friday."
Jack exhaled a breath of relief. "Thank God, I thought I'd have to start quoting fucking Byron. What time do you want me to take you to Baltimore? #Quote by Victoria Paige

Saint Assisi quotes by Erich Fromm
#6. The experience of humanism is that 'nothing human is alien to me'; that I carry within myself all of humanity; that nothing which exists in any human being does not exist in myself.

Saint Assisi quotes by John Lancaster Spalding

Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#13. What a space between men their spiritual natures create! A girl's reverie isolates her from me, and how shall I enter it? What can one know of a girl that passes, slow steps homeward, out of thoughts, she can form an empire, locked up in her language, in the singing echoes of her memory. Born yesterday of the volcanoes, of greenswards, of brine of the sea, she walks here already half divine. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery

#19. Immediately, and according to custom, the ramparts of Fort Saint-Jean were covered with spectators; it is always an event at Marseilles for a ship to come into port, especially when this ship, like the Pharaon, has been built, rigged, and laden at the old Phocee docks, and belongs to an owner of the city. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Saint Assisi quotes by Josemaria Escriva

Saint Assisi quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#22. The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint Assisi quotes by Anthony Of Sourozh
#23. It is not the constant thought of their sins, but the vision of the holiness of God that makes the saints aware of their own sinfulness. #Quote by Anthony Of Sourozh

Saint Assisi quotes by Eva Marie Saint
#25. Painters can study the masters can't they? Musicians can hear Beethoven. What will filmmakers do? #Quote by Eva Marie Saint
Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#26. The tender friendships one gives up, on parting, leave their bite on the heart, but also a curious feeling of a treasure somewhere buried. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery

#27. Self-interest is an ineffable feeling which shall follow us into God's very presence since they say there is a hierarchy even among the Holy Saints. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Saint Assisi quotes by Thomas Watson
#28. God's decree is the very pillar and basis on which the saint's perseverance depends. That decree ties the knot of adoption so fast, that neither sin, death, nor hell, can break it asunder. #Quote by Thomas Watson
Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#29. Perfection is not when there is no more to add, but no more to take away. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#30. Good morning," said the flower.
"Where are the men?" the little prince asked, politely. The flower had once seen a caravan passing.
"Men?" she echoed. "I think there are six or seven of them in existence. I saw them, several years ago. But one never knows where to find them. The wind blows them away. They have no roots, and that makes their life very difficult."
"Goodbye," said the little prince. "Goodbye," said the flower. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint Assisi quotes by Oswald Chambers

Saint Assisi quotes by Saint Augustine
#32. Try as they may to savor the taste of eternity, their thoughts still twist and turn upon the ebb and flow of things in past and future time. But if only their minds could be seized and held steady, they would be still for a while and, for that short moment, they would glimse the splendor of eternity, which is forever still. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint Assisi quotes by Robert Draper
#33. I don't want to paint myself as some kind of saint - that would be laughable - but I do think I've been able over the years to write humanely about subjects who are controversial and even contemptible. I've profiled pedophiles, stalkers, serial rapists, prison gang members and corrupt politicians. #Quote by Robert Draper
Saint Assisi quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#34. One cannot become a saint when one works sixteen hours a day. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Saint Assisi quotes by Jeet Thayil
#35. Then there are the addicts, the hunger addicts, the rage addicts, the poverty addicts , and power addicts, and the pure addicts who are addicted not to substances but to the oblivion and the tenderness the substances engender. An addict, if you don't mind me saying so, is like a saint. What is a saint but someone who has cut himself off, voluntarily, from the world's traffic and currency. #Quote by Jeet Thayil
Saint Assisi quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#36. Let us pass to the despotic part of the soul, spirit. We must not eliminate it utterly from the youth nor yet allow him to use it all the time. Let us train boys from earliest childhood to be patient when they suffer wrongs themselves, but, if they see another being wronged, to sally forth courageously and aid the sufferer in fitting measure. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Saint Assisi quotes by John Galliano
#37. McQueen was daring, original, exciting. He shook up the establishment with his creativity and understood what it takes to be a great British ambassador for fashion. I admired him very much. He was a fashion revolutionary that, like me, made the journey from [Central] Saint Martins to Paris where he put his own unique mark on the industry. He will not be forgotten. #Quote by John Galliano
Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#38. Here we are, condemned to death, and still the certainty of dying cannot compare with the pleasure I am feeling. The joy I take from this half an orange which I am holding in my hand is one of the greatest joys I have ever known. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint Assisi quotes by Frank Capra
#39. No saint, no pope, no general, no sultan, has ever had the power that a filmmaker has; the power to talk to hundreds of millions of people for two hours in the dark. #Quote by Frank Capra
Saint Assisi quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#40. Happiness! It is useless to seek it elsewhere than in this warmth of human relations. Our sordid interests imprison us within their walls. Only a comrade can grasp us by the hand and haul us free. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint Assisi quotes by Saint Augustine
#41. O Sacrament of Love! O sign of Unity! O bond of Charity! He who would have Life finds here indeed a Life to live in and a Life to live by. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint Assisi quotes by Saint Basil
#42. If every man took only what was sufficient for his needs, leaving the rest to those in want, there would be no rich and no poor. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint Assisi quotes by Saint Patrick
#43. Sufficient to say, greed is a deadly deed. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods. #Quote by Saint Patrick
Saint Assisi quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#44. I put my hands over Saint Cuthbert's fingers and I could feel the big ruby ring under my own fingers, and I gave the jewel a twitch just to see whether the stone was loose and would come free, but it seemed well fixed in its setting. "I swear to be your man," I said to the corpse, "and to serve you faithfully." I tried to shift the ring again, but the dead fingers were stiff and the ruby did not move. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Saint Assisi quotes by Maurice Sendak
#45. At the end of the forest the guardian angel pointed to the village and said: 'There you will find your mother. She is sitting outside the house, thinking of you. Go now. From here on, you won't be able to see me.'

The child went to the village, but it looked strange and unfamiliar to her. In among the houses she knew, there were others she had never seen before; the trees looked different, and there was no trace of damage the enemy had done. All was peaceful, the grain waved in the breeze, the meadows were green, the trees were laden with fruit. But she had no trouble recognizing her mother's house, and when she came close, she saw an old, old woman with bowed head, sitting on the bench outside the door, enjoying the last rays of the evening sun that hung low over the forest.

The old woman looked up, and when she saw the little girl she cried out in joyful amazement. 'Ah, dear child. God has granted my last wish, to see you once again before I die.' She kissed her and pressed her to her heart. And then the little girl heard that she had spent thirty years with Saint Joseph in the forest, though to her it had seemed like three days. All the fear and misery her mother had suffered during the great war had passed her by, and her whole life had been just one joyful moment. Her mother had thought wild beasts had torn her to pieces years ago, and yet deep in her heart she had hoped to catch at least a glimpse of her just as she was when she went away. And when #Quote by Maurice Sendak
