Silchas Ruin quotes by Steven Erikson
#1. He was asked, then, who was this Winged Grief? And Gallan said, 'There is but one left who would dare command me. One who would not weep and yet had taken into his soul a people's sorrow, a realm's sorrow. His name was Silchas Ruin. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Silchas Ruin quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#2. When Cath's eyes closed, her eyelids stuck. She wanted to open them. She wanted to get a better look at Levi's too-dark eyebrows, she wanted to admire his crazy, vampire hairline
she had a feeling this was never going to happen again and that it might even ruin what was left of her life, so she wanted to open her eyes and bear some witness. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Silchas Ruin quotes by David Hume
#3. It is not contrary to reason to prefer the destruction of the whole world to the scratching of my finger. It is not contrary to reason for me to choose my total ruin, to prevent the least uneasiness of an Indian, or person wholly unknown to me. It is as little contrary to reason to prefer even my own acknowledged lesser good to my greater, and have a more ardent affection for the former than the latter. #Quote by David Hume
Silchas Ruin quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#4. Focus, Wayne," Wax said. "How are we going to get in? Shall we try a Fat Belt?"
"Nah," Wayne said, "too loud. I think we should do Spoiled Tomato."
"Dangerous," Wax said, shaking his head. "I'd have to do the placement just right, between the lit perimeter and the shadowed part near the walls."
"You can do it. You make shots like that all the time. Plus, we got this shiny new metalmind, full o' health waitin' to be slurped up."
"A mistake could ruin the whole infiltration, healing power or no," Wax said. "I think we should do Duck Under Clouds instead."
"You kiddin'?" Wayne said. "Didn't you get shot last time we tried that?"
"Kinda," Wax admitted.
MeLaan stared at them, baffled. "Duck under Clouds?"
"They get like this," Marasi said, patting her on the shoulder. "Best not to listen too closely."
"Tube Run," Wayne said.
"No glue."
"Too dark."
"Blackwatch Doublestomp."
Wax hesitated. "… The hell is that?"
"Just made it up," Wayne said, grinning. "It's a nifty code name though, eh?"
"Not bad," Wax admitted. "And what type of plan is it?"
"Same as Spoiled Tomato," Wayne said. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Silchas Ruin quotes by Oscar Wilde
#5. At last, liveried in the costume of the age, reality entered the room in the shape of a servant to tell the duchess that her carriage was waiting. She wrung her hands in mock despair. "How annoying!" she cried. "I must go. I have to call for my husband at the club, to take him to some absurd meeting at Willis's Rooms, where he is going to be in the chair. If I am late he is sure to be furious, and I couldn't have a scene in this bonnet. It is far too fragile. A harsh word would ruin it. No, I must go, dear Agatha. Good-bye, Lord Henry, you are quite delightful and dreadfully demoralizing. I am sure I don't know what to say about your views. You must come and dine with us some night. Tuesday? Are you disengaged Tuesday? #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Silchas Ruin quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#6. As water downs ships but upholds leaves,
and as fires burn cities but refines gold,
so do life's troubles propel the meek to greatness
and the proud to ruin. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Silchas Ruin quotes by Elizabeth Scott
#7. Vitamins ruined my life.
Not that there was much left to ruin, but still.
I know that blaming vitamins for my horrible life sounds strange. After all, vitamins are supposed to keep people healthy. Also, they're inanimate objects. But thanks to them I was stuck in the Jackson Center Mall watching my father run around in a bee costume. #Quote by Elizabeth Scott
Silchas Ruin quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#8. Half the Christian churches of New York are trying to ruin the free public schools in order to replace them by religious dogma. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Silchas Ruin quotes by Daniel Handler
#9. I'd ruin any day, all my days, for those long nights with you, and I did. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Silchas Ruin quotes by Oscar Wilde
#10. There were opiates for remorse, drugs that could lull the moral sense to sleep. But here was a visible symbol of the degradation of sin. Here was an ever-present sign of the ruin men brought upon their souls. Three o'clock struck, and four, and the half-hour rang its double chime, but Dorian Gray did not stir. He #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Silchas Ruin quotes by Steve Goodier
#11. The only people I am aware of who don't have troubles are gathered in peaceful, little neighborhoods. There is never a care, never a moment of stress and never an obstacle to ruin a day. All is calm. All is serene. Most towns have at least one such worry-free zone. We call them cemeteries. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Silchas Ruin quotes by Justus Von Liebig
#12. If you want to become a chemist, you will have to ruin your health. If you don't ruin your health studying, you won't accomplish anything these days in chemistry.

{Liebig's advice to August Kekulé.} #Quote by Justus Von Liebig
Silchas Ruin quotes by Lora Mathis
#13. You make out with a boy because he's cute, but he has no substance, no words to offer you. His mouth tastes like stale beer and false promises. When he touches your chin, you offer your mouth up like a flower to to be plucked, all covered in red lipstick to attract his eye. When he reaches his hand down your shirt, he stops, hand on boob, and squeezes, like you're a fruit he's trying to juice. He doesn't touch anything but skin, does not feel what's within. In the morning, he texts you only to say, "I think I left the rest of my beer at your place, but it's cool, you can drink it. Last night was fun."
You kiss a girl because she's new. Because she's different and you're twenty two, trying something else out because it's all failed before. After spending six weekends together, you call her, only to be answered by a harsh beep informing you that her number has been disconnected. You learn that success doesn't come through experimenting with your sexuality, and you're left with a mouth full of ruin and more evidence that you are out of tune.
You fall for a boy who is so nice, you don't think he can do any harm. When he mentions marriage and murder in the same sentence, you say, "Okay, okay, okay." When you make a joke he does not laugh, but tilts his head and asks you how many drinks you've had in such a loving tone that you sober up immediately. He leaves bullet in your blood and disappears, saying, "Who wants a girl that's filled with holes?"
You find out that a #Quote by Lora Mathis
Silchas Ruin quotes by Perry Moore
#14. I caught myself thinking about falling in love with someone who I hoped was out there right now thinking about the possibility of me, but I quickly banished the notion. It was that kind of thinking that landed me in this situation to begin with. Hope can ruin you. #Quote by Perry Moore
Silchas Ruin quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#15. By the delusions of seeming good the people are often misled to desire their own ruin; and they are frequently influenced by great hopes and brave promises. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Silchas Ruin quotes by Carolyn Brown
#16. Don't worry about tomorrow or let the past ruin today. #Quote by Carolyn Brown
Silchas Ruin quotes by Laura Kaye
#17. Perfection is the absolute right word. And you could never ruin it," she said in a low, calm voice. "Not when it was perfect because of you. #Quote by Laura Kaye
Silchas Ruin quotes by Rachel Dratch
#18. If you have an impulse, not if you're going to ruin someone elses' scene, if you have an impulse of a funny little add-on or taking something in a weird direction, try it. #Quote by Rachel Dratch
Silchas Ruin quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#19. I have you fast in my fortress, And will not let you depart, But put you down into the dungeon, In the round-tower of my heart, And there will I keep you forever, Yes, forever and a day, Till the walls shall crumble to ruin, And moulder in the dust away! #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Silchas Ruin quotes by Bob Dylan
#20. Can you please crawl out your window? Use your arms and your legs, it won't ruin you #Quote by Bob Dylan
Silchas Ruin quotes by Rick Roderick
#21. The real question I am asking here is the one Marcuse asked in the sixties. How does a way of life break down? How does it break down. And Marcuse doesn't give the pat Marxist answer, which means economically, and we ought to be glad that that pat Marxist answer is false because if a society could be driven to ruin by debt, you know, the way a lot of people said the Russians – the Soviet Union – fell because it was broke. Let's hope that's not true [laughs] since we are broke, let's hope that's false. As a generalisation, we had better hope it is false.

How do they break down? Well, here there is an analogy – for me – between the social and the self under siege, in many ways. In many ways, not in a few, and some of the symptoms we see around us that our own lives are breaking down and the lives of our society is a generalised cynicism and scepticism about everything. I don't know how to characterise this situation, I find no parallel to it in human history. The scepticism and cynicism about everything is so general, and I think it's partly due to this thing I call banalisation, and it's partly due to the refusal and the fear of dealing with complexity. Much easier to be a cynic than to deal with complexity. Better to say everything is bullshit than to try to look into enough things to know where you are. Better to say everything is just… silly, or pointless, than to try to look into systems of this kind of complexity and into situations of the kind of complexity an #Quote by Rick Roderick
Silchas Ruin quotes by Avijeet Das
#22. She wants me to ruin her
And my pen makes her into poetry! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Silchas Ruin quotes by David Levithan
#23. I think the idea of a 'mental health day' is something completely invented by people who have no clue what it's like to have bad mental health. the idea that your mind can be aired out in twenty-four hours is kind of like saying heart disease can be cured if you eat the right breakfast cereal. mental health days only exist for people who have the luxury of saying 'i don't want to deal with things today' and then can take the whole day off, while the rest of us are stuck fighting the fights we always fight, with no one really caring one way or another, unless we choose to bring a gun to school or ruin the morning announcements with a suicide. #Quote by David Levithan
Silchas Ruin quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#24. I do not believe that, in order to be religious in the good and genuine sense of the word, one has to ruin one's love life and has to become rigid and shrunken in body and soul. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Silchas Ruin quotes by Charles Baxter
#25. When you break the heart of the philosopher, you must apply great force and cunning strategy, but when the deed is completed, the heart lies in great stony ruin at your feet. If you succeed in breaking it, the job is done once and for all. It will not be repaired. #Quote by Charles Baxter
Silchas Ruin quotes by Edward Wortley Montagu
#26. [T]here cannot be a more certain symptom of the approaching ruin of a State than when a firm adherence to party is fixed upon as the only test of merit, and all the qualifications requisite to a right discharge of every employment, are reduced to that single standard. #Quote by Edward Wortley Montagu
Silchas Ruin quotes by Jane Goldman
#27. I think when you really adore something and you've grown up with it you almost don't want to be part of it. I want to enjoy it as a fan and don't want to ruin the magic. #Quote by Jane Goldman
Silchas Ruin quotes by Cassandra Clare
#28. Jules: I should never have touched you. I never thought what we had could break so easily.
Emma: It's not broken. We made a mistake - but being together wasn't the mistake.
Jules: Most people get to make mistakes, Emma. It doesn't have to ruin their whole lives. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Silchas Ruin quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#29. You couldn't get more original than Laura. Laura. Yes, she was an original, all right. One of a kind. Did they break her mold or what, pal? Or ... or did it self-destruct? Still, Laura. The one and the only. Such a plain name for a unique cutie. But perhaps my acuity is not without its problems. I ruin everything: a stupid story to be tapped out on my tomb's stone. I ruined even Laura. And an original ruin is rare. Just ask the archaeologist, "Egypt, again?" Just ask me, "Laura, again?" and we'll both respond: "Yes, again and again. And again. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Silchas Ruin quotes by Chang-rae Lee
#30. For sometimes you can't help but crave some ruin in what you love. #Quote by Chang-rae Lee
Silchas Ruin quotes by Francesco Guicciardini
#31. Few revolutions succeed, and when they do, you often discover they did not gain what you hoped for, and you condemn yourself to perpetual fear, as the parties you defeated may always regain power and work for your ruin. #Quote by Francesco Guicciardini
Silchas Ruin quotes by BikeSnobNYC
#32. Some of the more smug cyclists live in eternal hope that humanity will somehow realize the error of its ways and reject the automobile altogether ... This is not going to happen ... never in the history of the world has humanity forfeited an invention that makes our lives profoundly easier, as the car does. Nobody ever said, "This newsprint is making my fingers filthy. I'm going back to smoke signals." TV was supposed to rot your brain and ruin your eyes, but instead of going away it only got bigger and flatter, and we now have like four hundred channels instead of three. And airplanes are still the world's preferred mode of very-long-distance travel, even though terrorists still try to fly them into buildings and we now have to be dismantled into our component atoms, sifted through, and reassembled in order to board them. So if we have yet to jettison these abominations, why would people give up their cars either? #Quote by BikeSnobNYC
Silchas Ruin quotes by Jonathan Swift
#33. I enjoyed perfect health of body, and tranquillity of mind; I did not feel the treachery or inconstancy of a friend, nor the injuries of a secret or open enemy. I had no occasion of bribing, flattering, or pimping, to procure the favour of any great man, or of his minion; I wanted no fence against fraud or oppression: here was neither physician to destroy my body, nor lawyer to ruin my fortune; no informer to watch my words and actions, or forge accusations against me for hire: here were no gibers, censurers, backbiters, pickpockets, highwaymen, housebreakers, attorneys, bawds, buffoons, gamesters, politicians, wits, splenetics, tedious talkers, controvertists, ravishers, murderers, robbers, virtuosos; no leaders, or followers, of party and faction; no encouragers to vice, by seducement or examples; no dungeon, axes, gibbets, whipping-posts, or pillories; no cheating shopkeepers or mechanics; no pride, vanity, or affectation; no fops, bullies, drunkards, strolling whores, or poxes; no ranting, lewd, expensive wives; no stupid, proud pedants; no importunate, overbearing, quarrelsome, noisy, roaring, empty, conceited, swearing companions; no scoundrels raised from the dust upon the merit of their vices, or nobility thrown into it on account of their virtues; no lords, fiddlers, judges, or dancing-masters. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Silchas Ruin quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#34. The social prestige of wine at table and at the club must be destroyed through lofty example and polite ridicule; forces which are not always available, and for whose successful operation much time will be required. But the outstanding fact remains, that the world has come to regard liquor in a new and clearer light. Our next generation of poets will contain but few Anacreons, for the thinking element of mankind has robbed the flowing bowl of its fancied virtues and fictitious beauties. The grape, so long permitted to masquerade as the inspirer of wit and art, is now revealed as the mother of ruin and death. The wolf at last stands divested of its sheep's clothing. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Silchas Ruin quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#35. For some reason Miss Jenner had seen fit to come uninvited to Sebastian's home at a scandalously late hour. To make the situation even more compromising, she was unaccompanied - and spending more than a half minute alone with Sebastian was sufficient to ruin any girl. He was debauched, amoral, and perversely proud of it. He excelled at his chosen occupation - that of degenerate seducer - and he had set a standard few rakes could aspire to. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Silchas Ruin quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#36. Generally speaking a view of the available economic systems
that have been tested historically must acknowledge the immense
power of capitalism to generate living standards food housing
education the amenities to a degree unprecedented in human
civilization. The benefits of such a system while occasionally
random and unpredictable with periods of undeniable stress
and misery depression starvation and degradation are
inevitably distributed to a greater and greater percentage
of the population. The periods of economic stability also
ensure a greater degree of popular political freedom
and among the industrial Western democracies today despite
occasional suppression of free speech quashing of dissent
corruption of public officials and despite the tendency of
legislation to serve the interests of the ruling business
oligarchy the poisoning of the air water the chemical adulteration
of food the obscene development of hideous weaponry the
increased costs of simple survival the waste of human resources
the ruin of cities the servitude of backward foreign populations
the standards of life under capitalism by any criterion are
far greater than under state socialism in whatever forms
it is found British Swedish Cuban Soviet or Chinese. Thus
the good that fierce advocacy of personal wealth accomplishes
in the historical run of things outweighs the bad. And while
we may not #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Silchas Ruin quotes by Libba Bray
#37. In Chinatown, a large rock painted with a message - CHINESE GO HOME! - shattered the front window of Chong & Sons, Jewellers. An arsonist's fire gutted the Wing Sing restaurant overnight; Mr. Wing stood in the softly falling wisps of soot-flecked snow, his sober face backlit by the orange glow as he watched everything he'd built burn to the ground. […] Fear was everywhere. At a eugenics conference in the elegant ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, genteel men in genteel suits spoke of "the mongrel problem - the ruin of the white race." They pointed to drawings and diagrams that proved most disease could be traced to inferior breeding stock. They called this science. They called it fact. They called it patriotism. People drank their coffee and nodded in agreement. #Quote by Libba Bray
Silchas Ruin quotes by Confucius
#38. It is the way of the superior man to prefer the concealment of his virtue, while it daily becomes more illustrious, and it is the way of the mean man to seek notoriety, while he daily goes more and more to ruin. #Quote by Confucius
Silchas Ruin quotes by Cynthia Hand
#39. She's one too," I say simply, mostly because I know Angela wanted to spring it on him herself, and it makes me feel better to ruin her plans. "And she's crazy, obviously." Christian nods, like this revelation comes as no surprise. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Silchas Ruin quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#40. 8. It can ruin your life only if it ruins your character. Otherwise it cannot harm you - inside or out. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Silchas Ruin quotes by Chris Lilley
#41. If you over-think, it affects things too much; I work instinctively, like painting in a way. Think too much, and you ruin everything. #Quote by Chris Lilley
Silchas Ruin quotes by Jenn Lyons
#42. Don't insult me by suggesting that the only way I'd be welcome in your bed is by removing all rivals. #Quote by Jenn Lyons
Silchas Ruin quotes by Francis Frangipane
#43. The very quality of your life, whether you love it or hate it, is based upon how thankful you are toward God. It is one's attitude that determines whether life unfolds into a place of blessedness or wretchedness. Indeed, looking at the same rose bush, some people complain that the roses have thorns while others rejoice that some thorns come with roses. It all depends on your perspective.

This is the only life you will have before you enter eternity. If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness. Indeed, the one who is thankful for even a little enjoys much. But the unappreciative soul is always miserable, always complaining. He lives outside the shelter of the Most High God.

Perhaps the worst enemy we have is not the devil but our own tongue. James tells us, "The tongue is set among our members as that which . . . sets on fire the course of our life" (James 3:6). He goes on to say this fire is ignited by hell. Consider: with our own words we can enter the spirit of heaven or the agonies of hell!

It is hell with its punishments, torments and misery that controls the life of the grumbler and complainer! Paul expands this thought in 1 Corinthians 10:10, where he reminds us of the Jews who "grumble[d] . . . and were destroyed by the destroyer." The fact is, every time we open up to grumbling and complaining, the quality of our life is reduced proportionally -- a destroyer is bringing our life to ruin!

People often ask me, #Quote by Francis Frangipane
Silchas Ruin quotes by James A. Garfield
#44. A nation is not worthy to be saved if, in the hour of its fate, it will not gather up all its jewels of manhood and life, and go down into the conflict however bloody and doubtful, resolved on measureless ruin or complete success. #Quote by James A. Garfield
Silchas Ruin quotes by Aleister Crowley
#45. What is it in absinthe that makes it a separate cult? The effects of its abuse are totally distinct from those of other stimulants. Even in ruin and in degradation it remains a thing apart: its victims wear a ghastly aureole all their own, and in their peculiar hell yet gloat with a sinister perversion of pride that they are not as other men. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Silchas Ruin quotes by Tom Stoppard
#46. A genuine love of learning is one of the two delinquencies which cause blindness and lead a young man to ruin. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Silchas Ruin quotes by David Ssembajjo
#47. A sane person who dwells among the mad will become insane because they will act like the mad. One who cares and treats the insane will have mad traits. A sane man who lives among the mad will be made mad by virtue of his associations and dealings. No sane person can dwell among the mad unless if that person is mad himself/herself. A mad person percieves madness and has no clear object or picture that can come out of his mind. Remember sore grapes can ruin good tasty grapes when taken together.You can't live amongst pigs if you are not a pig yourself. Therefore how can the mad treat their fellow mad. That is vanity too be treated by a mad physician who thinks he is sane. The treatment of a mad person speaks volumes and appears to suggest and show that they are treated in a haphazard way without a clear path in regard to recovering their sanity. #Quote by David Ssembajjo
