Things I quotes by Aaron Hartzler
#1. That day, in the warm sun, surrounded by the solid proof of an ancient realm, I let go of forming theories. I only know that, given enough time, this wound would scar over. The layers of my life will slowly cover and fill the gulf cleft through my heart. But deep in the bedrock of who I am is a record of these things I will carry with me, a new map whose boundaries have forever altered the way I view the world. #Quote by Aaron Hartzler
Things I quotes by Linda Gray
#2. I need to live a long time to fulfil all the things I want to do. #Quote by Linda Gray
Things I quotes by Vir Das
#3. 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
Things I quotes by George Carlin
#4. I tried to believe that there is a God, who created each of us in His own image and likeness, loves us very much, and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize, something is fucked up. #Quote by George Carlin
Things I quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#5. So, we have an element newly prominent in American religious and political life, a new form of entitlement, a self-declared elect. What some have seen as a resurgence of Christianity, or at least a bold defense of American cultural tradition - even as another great awakening! - has brought a harshness, a bitterness, a crudeness, and a high-handedness into the public sphere that are only to be compared to the politics, or the collapse of politics, in the period before the Civil War. Its self-righteousness fuels the damnedest things - I use the word advisedly - notably the acquisition of homicidal weapons. I wonder what these supposed biblicists find in the Gospels or the Epistles that could begin to excuse any of it. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Things I quotes by Lauren Fleshman
#6. The Pre highlighted things I needed to tweak. I'm glad I ran there and found the things I needed to tweak and didn't find those things out here. #Quote by Lauren Fleshman
Things I quotes by James Patterson

-I love eating. I list it as a hobby. #Quote by James Patterson
Things I quotes by Zoe Sugg
#8. Ooh, let me see my one," Megan cries, grabbing the camera from him and pressing at it wildly. My whole body tenses. Normally, I don't mind sharing things - I even give half my advent-calendar chocolates to my brother, Tom - but my camera is different. It's my most prized possession. It's my safety net. #Quote by Zoe Sugg
Things I quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#9. I do not know how old I was when I learned to play chess. I could not have been older than eight, because I still have a chessboard on whose side my father inscribed, with a soldering iron, "Saša Hemon 1972." I loved the board more than chess - it was one of the first things I owned. Its materiality was enchanting to me: the smell of burnt wood that lingered long after my father had branded it; the rattle of the thickly varnished pieces inside, the smacking sound they made when I put them down, the board's hollow wooden echo. I can even recall the taste - the queen's tip was pleasantly suckable; the pawns' round heads, not unlike nipples, were sweet. The board is still at our place in Sarajevo, and, even if I haven't played a game on it in decades, it is still my most cherished possession, providing incontrovertible evidence that there once lived a boy who used to be me. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Things I quotes by Guido Palau
#10. I worked at a bunch of other salons, and at one, this girl was going out to do a photo shoot for a women's magazine and brought me along to assist her. I remember going on that shoot and thinking, "God, this is great. It's creative, and you get to work with all of these other creative people." At that point I decided that hair would be my in to fashion and all the things I thought I would enjoy - and did enjoy. #Quote by Guido Palau
Things I quotes by Isabel Allende
#11. Popo used to say, life is a tapestry we weave day by day with threads of different colors, some heavy and dark, others thin and bright, all the threads having their uses. The stupid things I did are already in the tapestry, #Quote by Isabel Allende
Things I quotes by CM Punk
#12. One of the things I want to find out is where the hell are the WWE ice cream bars?! #Quote by CM Punk
Things I quotes by Christina Baker Kline
#13. Something in his manner makes me want to confide things to him I've never told anyone. Even painful things, shameful things. I didn't know how badly I wanted to share them. #Quote by Christina Baker Kline
Things I quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#14. I want to honor Jesus with the things I say and the things I choose not to say. Lord, help us all be so careful with sharing opinions as if they are truth. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Things I quotes by John Woolman
#15. While I meditate on the gulf towards which I travelled, and reflect on my youthful disobedience, for these things I weep, mine eye runneth down with water. #Quote by John Woolman
Things I quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#16. At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: "I have to go to work - as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I'm going to do what I was born for - the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm? #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Things I quotes by Larry Hagman
#17. You know Hollywood is a weird and wonderful place, I didn't know I Dream of Jeanie had been cancelled after 5 years until I went back to go on the lot to pick up some clothes and things I had in my dressing room. #Quote by Larry Hagman

Things I quotes by Jeffrey Veen
#19. One of the things I firmly believe about seemingly risky decisions is that you can't fully imagine how things can be better while you're in the thing you don't quite like. #Quote by Jeffrey Veen
Things I quotes by M.A. George
#20. Me? ... Stupid?" I fluttered my eyes innocently. "When have I ever done anything stupid?"
"Don't get me wrong, you're the smartest person I know ... " She fought back a smile. "But you have done some of the dumbest things I ever thought possible."
"So you have a point ... " I shrugged. "Still not stopping me. #Quote by M.A. George
Things I quotes by Gwyneth Paltrow
#21. We do live in an unsafe world. That's the truth. I'm dealing with that now, with my seven-year-old. He's grappling with the fact that the world is unsafe, and that there are people who do harmful things. I don't think there's anything wrong with presenting that idea. We can't lie to our children and pretend that the world is perfect, and everybody's happy, and everybody's out there to do good. It's just part of a bigger conversation. #Quote by Gwyneth Paltrow
Things I quotes by Alexander Karp
#22. One of the things I find really hard and view as a massive drag ... is that I'm losing my ability to be completely anonymous. #Quote by Alexander Karp
Things I quotes by V. Theia
#23. God, the things I want to do to you, Paige."
"What - what things? Tell me."
"They're sinful things, Paige. Wicked and dirty. They're so bad, I want you to remember it every single day of your life. I want you begging me for more, to make you as sinful as I feel when I look at you. #Quote by V. Theia
Things I quotes by Julie Buntin
#24. We were already growing apart, in the weeks before she died - when I moved to New York, we almost certainly would have lost touch, become just another pair of girls who shared a brief and intense friendship that faded, as friendships usually do, with age and geography. But I believed every one of those old promises. I would have pitied any adult who told me that things would change. For you, I would have though, but not for us. I was going to leave, yes, but she was supposed to come, too. And didn't she? Those early days in New York, August, the city so hot I walked around drenched in its spit, she was with me all the time, in the things I did if not always in my thoughts. I got a job at a bar where all the waitstaff were Irish and wasn't it her who made me louder when I needed to be, who made me brave at night, walking home with all that cash? She's the way I swear and how I let men look at me or not, she's the bit of steel at my center, either her, herself, or the loss of her. Before that year I was nothing but a soft, formless girl, waiting for someone to come along and tell me who to be. #Quote by Julie Buntin
Things I quotes by Nancy Glynn
#25. How did you know what I was thinking?" Her body jolted at the touch of his hand, wanting more than his hand touching her.
"I know these things. I can read your mind."
"Oh." A heat singed her skin.
"I know about your husband, Richard. He's not good. #Quote by Nancy Glynn
Things I quotes by Penn Jillette
#26. I believe the fast track to atheism is reading the Bible. I've read it three times all the way through. It's a big part of our culture, a big part of our history. I don't just read things I agree with. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Things I quotes by John Glenn
#27. If there is one thing I've learned in my years on this planet, it's that the happiest and most fulfilled people I've known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their own self interest. #Quote by John Glenn
Things I quotes by Helen Macdonald
#28. In two months, I think, my college job will end. In two months I will have no office, no college, no salary, no home. Everything will be different. But, I think, everything already is. When Alice dropped down the rabbit-hole into Wonderland she fell so slowly she could take things from the cupboards and bookshelves on the walls, look curiously at the maps and pictures that passed her by. In my three years as a Cambridge Fellow there'd been lectures and libraries and college meetings, supervisions, admissions interviews, late nights of paper-writing and essay-marking, and other things soaked in Cantabrian glamour: eating pheasant by candlelight at High Table while snow dashed itself in flurries against the leaded glass and carols were sung and the port was passed and the silver glittered upon dark-polished refectory tables. Now, standing on a cricket pitch with a hawk on my hand, I knew I had always been falling as I moved past these things. I could reach out and touch them, pick them off their shelves and replace them, but they were not mine. Not really ever mine. Alice, falling, looked down to see where she was headed, but everything below her was darkness. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Things I quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#29. Well did I come to know the presiding dryads of those trees, and often have I watched their wild dances in the struggling beams of a waning moon - but of these things I must not now speak. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Things I quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#30. Tipping my head back, I screamed.
Unlocked from the depths of my soul, it kept coming and coming. I couldn't stop it. I couldn't comprehend what I'd become - the things I had done. And when I stopped, it was only because my throat was raw. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Things I quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#31. One of the most marvelous things I experienced was that you hold another one's hand in your hand, you feel the pulse, then it becomes slower and slower, then that's it. It's something enormous. Then you still hold that hand, then the nurse comes in, bringing with her the number for the corpse. The nurse wheels her out once more and says: "Come back later." Then you are immediately confronted with life again. You calmly get up and put things in order; in the meantime the nurse comes back and attaches the number to the corpse, you empty the bedside cabinet, the nurse says: "Don't forget the yogurt, you have to take it too." Outside you hear the crows -- it's like a theatrical play.

Then the bad conscience comes. A dead person leaves you with an immense guilt. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Things I quotes by Suzanne Vega
#32. I wasn't afraid of going places or doing new things. I would do just about anything or go anywhere. I'd get a notion in my mind and just follow it. #Quote by Suzanne Vega
Things I quotes by Roald Dahl
#33. I think the reason I do not want to die is because of the things I hope will happen. Yes, that's right. I'm sure that's right. Point a revolver at a tramp, at a wet shivering tramp on the side of the road and say, "I'm going to shoot you", and he will cry, "Don't shoot. Please don't shoot." The tramp clings to life because of the things he hopes will happen. #Quote by Roald Dahl
Things I quotes by James Bobin
#34. It doesn't matter if you're good at anything, just try your best. Then there's the idea that individually they're flawed but together they can do amazing things. I think that's a very nice message and it's not something you hit people over the head with. It just comes with The Muppets; it's what they're about. It's that kind of innocent try, try, try quality. And it also makes them underdogs. You can't help but support the underdog. #Quote by James Bobin
Things I quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#35. But what do I have? The things I'm told and the things I tell, that's all. And as far as I know, that never yet made anyone fly. #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Things I quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#36. Of all the things I found puzzling about Sam, this one was always the most puzzling: his sudden, self-deprecating mood swings ... Was this what it meant to be creative? #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Things I quotes by Chade-Meng Tan
#37. I was always very different from the other kids. I have an I.Q. of 156. I didn't play sports. I thought big. I thought I could achieve great things. I don't want to sound megalomaniac, but my whole life is about doing something for the world, from as far back as I can remember. #Quote by Chade-Meng Tan
Things I quotes by Stephen Colbert
#38. They think I'm silly. I do silly things. I fall down and run into things. I talk to inanimate objects. I'll hold a pickup stick to my ear and say, What? What's that? I can't hear you #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Things I quotes by Nichole Chase
#39. A group of older women walked past, wearing fanny packs and large cameras around their necks.


"I think I'm going to get one of those." Weylin's voice was thoughtful as he watched the women jaywalk.

"One of what?" Ree cocked an eyebrow and smiled at her friend.

"I don't know, Wey-mand. I think they might be too much woman for you." Paden flashed a crooked grin.

"Har, har. I meant a fanny pack." Looking thoughtful, Weylin ignored thier expressions of disbelief.

"A...fanny pack?" Sophie was looking at Weylin as if he had lost his mind, but Ree noticed the corners of her mouth twitching.

"Yeah. Think about all the cool things I could carry in one." Completely unperturbed, Weylin stopped at the crosswalk and hit the button on the light post. "I could carry knives and some of those collapsible swords that Roland uses. Oh and snacks!"

Unable to control her laughter anymore, Ree leaned over and clutched her sides. "Snacks? Weylin, I think you might need to lie down. You obviously have a fever or something."

"You won't be saying that the next time we're out and you get a hankering for a pizza or some popcorn. I could even carry bottled water and little sanitizer wipes."

"How big of a fanny pack are you planning on getting? Paden raised an eyebrow.


"Oh, hell no! I am not eating food you've been carrying near your man-pickle. That is so not going to #Quote by Nichole Chase

#40. If The Savior Stood Beside Me, Would I Wear the Things I Wear? #Quote by Carol F. McConkie
Things I quotes by Myra McEntire
#41. I'm never going to see him again. There were so many things I didn't say, and after my parents ... I swore I'd never leave anything unsaid. But I did. Now he's gone. #Quote by Myra McEntire
Things I quotes by Bill Gates
#42. I like my job because it involves learning. I like being around smart people who are trying to figure out new things. I like the fact that if people really try they can figure out how to invent things that actually have an impact. #Quote by Bill Gates
Things I quotes by Margaret Sherry
#43. I confess to being a compulsive list maker- everything gets ordered into one of these categories: 1) Things I Must Do, 2) Things I Have To Do Or I'm A Dead Woman and 3) The Scary List. #Quote by Margaret Sherry
Things I quotes by Aleister Crowley
#44. I am only sipping the second glass of that "fascinating, but subtle poison, whose ravages eat men's heart and brain" that I have ever tasted in my life; and as I am not an American anxious for quick action, I am not surprised and disappointed that I do not drop dead upon the spot. But I can taste souls without the aid of absinthe; and besides, this is magic of absinthe! The spirit of the house has entered into it; it is an elixir, the masterpiece of an old alchemist, no common wine. And so, as I talk with the patron concerning the vanity of things, I perceive the secret of the heart of God himself; this, that everything, even the vilest thing, is so unutterably lovely that it is worthy of the devotion of a God for all eternity. What other excuse could He give man for making him? In substance, that is my answer to King Solomon. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Things I quotes by Veronica Roth
#45. So this is where you grew up. Did you like it here? I guess you couldn't have, if you wanted to leave.' CHRISTINA
'I liked some things and hated some things. And there were some things I didn't know I had until I lost them.' TRIS #Quote by Veronica Roth
Things I quotes by Tad Williams
#46. It's amazing the stupid things I say sometimes. I mean, you could start an entire branch of scientific research about the stuff I say that gets proved wrong while I'm still busy saying it. #Quote by Tad Williams
Things I quotes by Kate Forsyth
#47. Fairy tales are stories of triumph and transformation and true love, all things I fervently believe in. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Things I quotes by Rosario Castellanos
#48. Writing has been a way of explaining to myself the things I do not understand. #Quote by Rosario Castellanos
Things I quotes by Marc Bolan
#49. I personally believe that I was ... a previous life or something ... a previous reincarnation, a bard of some sort, because most of the things I write about are descriptions of places I've never been to. #Quote by Marc Bolan
Things I quotes by Nicki Minaj
#50. I think one of the things I was shocked about was how interested the world is in 'American Idol' and how people, writers, they write about 'Idol' all the time, and I guess I didn't expect that. #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Things I quotes by Chris Reifert
#51. I'm always interested in new things. I don't go seeking out every band I can hear because there are too many, especially now with the Internet. There's no way you can collect everything. #Quote by Chris Reifert
Things I quotes by Anna Banks
#52. The list of correlations to that night is as long as the Jersey coast.
And so is the list of reasons I shouldn't be looking forward to seeing him at school. But I can't help it. He's already texted me three times this morning: Can I pick you up for school? and Do u want 2 have breakfast? and R u getting my texts? My thumbs want to answer "yes" to all of the above, but my dignity demands that I don't answer at all. He called my his student. He stood there alone with me on the beach and told me he thinks of me as a pupil. That our relationship is platonic. And everyone knows what platonic means-rejected.
Well, I might be his student, but I'm about to school, him on a few things. The first lesson of the day is Silent Treatment 101.
So when I see him in the hall, I give him a polite nod and brush right by him. The zap from the slight contact never quite fades, which mean he's following me. I make it to my locker before his hand is on my arm. "Emma." The way he whispers my name sends goose bumps all the way to my baby toes. But I'm still in control.
I nod to him, dial the combination to my locker, then open it in his face. He moves back before contact. Stepping around me, he leans his hand against the locker door and turns me around to face him. "That's not very nice."
I raise my best you-started-this brow.
He sighs. "I guess that means you didn't miss me."
There are so many things I could pop off right now. Things like, "But at least I had Toraf #Quote by Anna Banks
Things I quotes by Claire North
#53. I am frightened now. I am frightened that when he fades from my memory, a piece of me will die too. The feelings, the things I have learned, the ideas I have had today, so many ideas, so many feelings, they will die with my memory. I fear that loss. But more, a terror that I must share with my future self. I fear what this means for me. If you forget the joy of this day, then what joy you give to others will also be forgotten, and your life has no consequence, no meaning, no worth. I am a shadow, blasted away by the sun, a meaningless occlusion of light that fades with the day. #Quote by Claire North
Things I quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#54. Above all things I hope the education of the common people will be attended to; convinced that on their good sense we may rely with most security for the preservation of a due degree of liberty. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Things I quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#55. I just want to know...if I am special,' finished September, halfway between a whisper and a squeak. 'In stories, when someone appears in a poof of green clouds and asks a girl to go away on an adventure, it's because she's special, because she's smart and strong and can solve riddles and fight with swords and give really good speeches, and . . . I don't know that I'm any of those things. I don't even know that I'm as ill-tempered as all that. I'm not dull or anything, I know about geography and chess, and I can fix the boiler when my mother has to work. But what I mean to say is: Maybe you meant to go to another girl's house and let her ride on the Leopard. Maybe you didn't mean to choose me at all, because I'm not like storybook girls. I'm short and my father ran away with the army and I wouldn't even be able to keep a dog from eating a bird. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Things I quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#56. In the past, the thought of being in my present situation had been a comfort, but now I did not even have this to look forward to, and so I lay down on my bed and dreamt I was eating a bowl of pink mullet and green figs cooked in coconut milk, and it had been cooked by my grandmother, which was why the taste of it pleased me so, for she was the person I liked best in all the world and those were the things I like best to eat also. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Things I quotes by Mindy Kaling
#57. There's a whole list of things I would probably change about myself. For example, I'm always trying to lose fifteen pounds. But I never need to be skinny. I don't want to be skinny. I'm constantly in a state of self-improvement but I don't beat myself up over it. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Things I quotes by Genna Rulon
#58. There is nothing I wouldn't do to see you smile or hear you laugh. No distance I wouldn't travel to be by your side, no war I wouldn't wage to protect you. Being with you, loving you, knowing you love me... that's my definition o heaven. I get to spend every day in heaven because of you, so all those little things I do, they're only glimpses of everything you give me. #Quote by Genna Rulon
Things I quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#59. Sometimes I did things I didn't want to do,or said things I didn't want to say. Sometimes I felt like crying for no reason, or snapped at people I cared about for less. I'd been so worried for so long that I was losing my mind, but now it felt like I was losing my body. I felt like a stranger. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin
Things I quotes by Alison Sweeney
#60. One of the things I like best about 'Biggest Loser' is being around people who are trying to make the right choices. When you feel defeated about your weight and your health, like there's no hope, and you still make the choice to fight for it, to make the change happen no matter what people say or think, that's inspiring to me. #Quote by Alison Sweeney
Things I quotes by Hannah Kent
#61. 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
Things I quotes by Bobby Jindal
#62. I'm so tired of the left trying to divide us by race. One of the things I said today in my speech, we're not Indian-Americans, African-Americans, Irish-Americans, rich Americans, poor Americans. We're all Americans. #Quote by Bobby Jindal
Things I quotes by Kristi Cook
#63. I've got an idea," he says. "Let's pretend we've got to do a school project together. You know, say that we've been paired up against our will. We can make a big fuss about it--complain about having to spend so much time together."
"While we secretly do lots of naughty things?" I offer.
He nods. "Exactly. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Things I quotes by Charles Manson
#64. You live the lifestyle you were trained and conditioned to live. I create me own lifestyle, my own world. You live in the world that was created for you. You accept the things you were taught to accept because you don't know any different. I don't accept the things I was taught. I don't accept the trees being cut down. I don't accept the water being polluted. You people accept that. #Quote by Charles Manson
Things I quotes by Robert Sexton
#65. Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away; and all the things I want to say can find no voice. Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak my heart. #Quote by Robert Sexton
Things I quotes by Christian Slater
#66. I do have a Twitter account, and there's a woman at my agency who got that all set up for me. I don't know how many followers I have. It's not one of those things I check on a regular basis. #Quote by Christian Slater
Things I quotes by Duff McKagan
#67. On March 31, 1994, I went to LAX to catch a flight from L.A. to Seattle. Kurt Cobain was waiting to take the same flight. We started talking. He had just skipped out of a rehab facility. We were both fucked up. We ended up getting seats next to each other and talking the whole way, but we didn't delve into certain things: I was in my hell and he was in his, and we both seemed to understand. #Quote by Duff McKagan
Things I quotes by Christopher Buckley
#68. Fiction, for me, is sort of a protracted way of saying all the things I wished I said the night before. #Quote by Christopher Buckley
Things I quotes by Flula Borg
#69. I think many people are finding things I do very funny and strange. #Quote by Flula Borg
Things I quotes by Alice Walker
#70. I write not only what I want to read ... I write all the things I should have been able to read. #Quote by Alice Walker
Things I quotes by Joan Didion
#71. On the flight to LaGuardia I remember thinking that the most beautiful things I had ever seen had all been seen from airplanes. The way the American west opens up. The way in which, on a polar flight across the Arctic, the islands in the sea give way imperceptibly to lakes on the land. The sea between Greece and Cyprus in the morning. The Alps on the way to Milan. I saw all those things with John. How could I go back to Paris without him, how could I go back to Milan, Honolulu, Bogotá? I couldn't even go to Boston. #Quote by Joan Didion
Things I quotes by Dick Schaap
#72. I just can't believe all the things I did that decade. #Quote by Dick Schaap
Things I quotes by Richard Coyle
#73. I never like to judge the character. I just have to leave my feelings of pity, or fear, about a character - whatever I feel towards the character, I try to leave to one side. It's good to have them, but it doesn't help me. I can't act those things. I just to play the character as truthfully as I can. #Quote by Richard Coyle
Things I quotes by Lauren Myracle
#74. I've written a lot of novels for teens and tweens ... but I'd never really tackled the North Carolina side of me. And it's so strong and so important, and yet I hadn't acknowledged it. And so one of the things I wanted to do in "Shine" is take that on. #Quote by Lauren Myracle
Things I quotes by Shane Carruth
#75. I had a really generic upbringing, I think, when it comes to viewing movies as a kid. I didn't really know what was out there or what was being tried. I was, like, 'E.T.' and 'Indiana Jones.' Those were the only things I knew existed. #Quote by Shane Carruth
Things I quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#76. As you grow older and young people come up to you with their history books, you realize that some of the things I have been able to do have been impactful. But for me, I try to keep everything in perspective and stay humble. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Things I quotes by Eve Langlais
#77. In her eyes, he could see the fear, but also the love. The need. Time to show her, that to him, she meant everything.
"Before you shower me with kisses for saving you –"
"I think it could be argued that I played a part."
"Not when I retell the story you won't. But we can argue about that later, naked. As I was saying, I have something for you." Remy pulled the sheet of paper out of his back pocket and unfolded it.
Initially he'd worried about it being too short. But as Lucifer assured him when he made the contract and binding, the less clauses he put in, the more his promise would stick out. Handing it to her, he waited.
Fidgeted when she didn't say a word. Almost tore it from her grasp. Then stumbled back as she threw herself at him.

I, Remy, the most awesome demon in Hell, do declare to love the witch Ysabel, fiery temper and all, for an eternity. I will never stray. Never betray her trust. Never do anything to cause her pain upon penalty of permanent death.
This I do swear in blood,

A simple contract, which in its very lack of clauses and sub items, awed her. "You love me that much?"
He peered at her with incredulity on his face. "Of course I love you that much. Would I have done all the things I did if I didn't?"
"Well, you are related to a mad woman."
"Yes, and maybe it's madness for me to love you, but I do. Do you think just any woman would inspire me enough to take on a bloody pai #Quote by Eve Langlais
Things I quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#78. I rebel at the notion that I can't be part of other groups, that I can't construct identities through elective affinity, that race must be the most important thing about me. Is that what I want on my gravestone: Here lies an African American? #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Things I quotes by J.R. Johansson
#79. I can't look at everything I've already done wrong, only the things I can choose to do right from here on out. #Quote by J.R. Johansson
Things I quotes by Greta Garbo
#80. I don't like to talk to people, because I can't express myself satisfactorily. I don't say the things I mean. #Quote by Greta Garbo
Things I quotes by Goswami Kriyananda
#81. But surrender also means your back's to the wall and saying, "Okay, I give up." But rather it's a joyful self-offering. When you come to the point of realizing that "I never get it right. I always make a mess of things; I can't do anything right. Let him do it." And then you ask his power to do it through you and you find suddenly that it works that way. #Quote by Goswami Kriyananda
Things I quotes by Jacqueline Carey
#82. When I started really writing fantasy, one of the things I noticed was a real absence of sexuality in the genre at all. And it's such a profound part of the human experience that it's a really big thing to leave out. #Quote by Jacqueline Carey
Things I quotes by Juan Pablo Di Pace
#83. I have five, six, seven things I do before those lines are in my brain. I say them like I'm a robot; I sing them. I put a pencil in my mouth, and I say them. I cook. I play with a cushion and say them - so they really are inside of me. #Quote by Juan Pablo Di Pace
Things I quotes by Elizabeth Joan Smith
#84. It's just so hard sometimes to work out where people stand on these things. I mean, isn't the Pope a feminist? #Quote by Elizabeth Joan Smith
Things I quotes by Deborah Blake
#85. God and Goddess, I greet you at the start of another day and ask that you send me the best day possible. Help me to feel my best so I might do my best for myself and for others. Send me the strength and energy to do the things I need to do, and the focus and creativity to do them well. Help me to let go of all those things that no longer work for my benefit so I might move in the direction of perfect health and perfect balance. Help the world move in a better direction, and watch over me and those I love. Please send me prosperity and healing, patience and wisdom, serenity and faith. ... So mote it be. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Things I quotes by Seth Meyers
#86. The first time I had disposable income, the two things I cared most about were a television and a couch. #Quote by Seth Meyers
Things I quotes by Chanel Iman
#87. I'm thinking of slowing down on modeling and branching out to other things. I want to pursue some new and old dreams and start making them happen. #Quote by Chanel Iman
Things I quotes by Adrian Peterson
#88. I came back from my ACL injury and won MVP. So, what's a groin? What's an adductor? That's how I look at things. I feel like if you just continue to take care of your body, working out, making sure you're in shape and you stay on top of your game, you can play as long as you want. #Quote by Adrian Peterson
Things I quotes by Dick Latvala
#89. I don't have an agenda. I don't have things I want to get to or something. I have like a broad, slim grasp of certain periods and certain shows within that period, an awareness of them, but they demand re-listening. I have a flimsy grasp of all the eras and ideas within each period of what would be a good show to think of. #Quote by Dick Latvala
Things I quotes by Karl Pilkington
#90. I love nature - it's probably my most favorite thing. I don't watch much telly, the telly hardly goes on, but the things I do watch are sort of nature programs, and something about the oceans and the amount of weird fish that's in there. #Quote by Karl Pilkington
Things I quotes by Robert Asprin
#91. Between you and me, I think that may be one of the things that will help with the collaboration, because there are things Eric thinks I'm moving too quickly on, and there are things I think he's dragging out. When it gets to the editor they can arbitrate. #Quote by Robert Asprin
Things I quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#92. The freedom of saying anything to him, telling all, relieved a burden I hadn't even realized I'd been carrying. In my relentless push to keep moving forward, there had been so many emotions I hadn't let myself inhabit fully, so many things I hadn't talked about. Now I couldn't quite catch up to myself. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Things I quotes by Ben Mendelsohn
#93. I have an intensive relationship with the thing that I'm working on, and I hope that comes through. It's better for me to not worry about the things I can't fix once they're done. #Quote by Ben Mendelsohn
Things I quotes by David J. Anderson
#94. There are two things I enjoy most about my work. First, I get to work with interesting and enthusiastic people who are also fired up about science. Second, every once in a while I have moments in which I suddenly understand the solution to a problem that I've been working on - those are great moments. #Quote by David J. Anderson
Things I quotes by Jim Butcher
#95. I'm never really comfortable at parties. Maybe I'm just not the partying type.
... I think it's because I'm never sure what to do with myself.
I mean, there're drinks, but I don't like being drunk ... There's music, but I never really learned to dance to anything that involved an electric guitar. There are people to talk to ... but once you put all the stupid things I do aside, I'm really not that interesting. I like reading, staying home, going on walks with my dog ... Who wants to hear about that? Especially when I would have to scream it over music to which no one dances.
So I'm there but not drinking, listening to music but not dancing, and trying to have conversations with near-strangers about anything other than my own stupid life ... Leads to a lot of awkward pauses. And then I start wondering why I showed up in the first place.
Cold Days (The Dresden Files Book 14), pg. 33 #Quote by Jim Butcher
Things I quotes by Stormie O'martian
#96. Lord, I wait on You and listen for Your voice. Speak to my heart about the things I need to hear. Teach me all I need to know. Thank You for the great blessings that await anyone who waits at Your door and listens for Your voice. In these times of waiting on You, may the character of Christ be formed in me and my faith be increased. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Things I quotes by Nicholson Baker
#97. The Pop-Tarts page is often aflutter. Pop-Tarts, it says as of today (February 8, 2008), were discontinued in Australia in 2005. Maybe that's true. Before that it said that Pop-Tarts were discontinued in Korea. Before that Australia. Several days ago it said: "Pop-Tarts is german for Little Iced Pastry O' Germany." Other things I learned from earlier versions: More than two trillion Pop-Tarts are sold each year. George Washington invented them. They were developed in the early 1960s in China. Popular flavors are "frosted strawberry, frosted brown sugar cinnamon, and semen." Pop-Tarts are a "flat Cookie." No: "Pop-Tarts are a flat Pastry, KEVIN MCCORMICK is a FRIGGIN LOSER notto mention a queer inch." No: "A Pop-Tart is a flat condom." Once last fall the whole page was replaced with "NIPPLES AND BROCCOLI!!!!! #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Things I quotes by Riley Redgate
#98. Sometimes you go a long time having fooled yourself into thinking that you're as grown-up as you'll ever be, or that you're more mature than the rest of the world thinks you are, and you live in this state of constant self-assurance, and for a while nothing can upset you from this pedestal you've built for yourself, because you imagine yourself to be so capable. And then somebody does something that takes a golf club to your ego, and suddenly you're nine years old again, pieced together from humiliation and gawky youthfulness and childlike ideas like, Somebody please tell me what to do, nobody taught me how to handle this, God, just look at all the things I still don't understand, and you can't muster up the presence of mind to do anything but stand there, stare, silent, sorry. #Quote by Riley Redgate
Things I quotes by Phil Keoghan
#99. After more than twenty-five years in television, there are days when I feel like I'm just beginning, because I'm learning new things. I want to be better all the time. #Quote by Phil Keoghan
Things I quotes by Harpo Marx
#100. Many years ago a very wise man named Bernard Baruch took me aside and put his arm around my shoulder. "Harpo my boy," he said, "I'm going to give you three pieces of advice, three things you should always remember." My heart jumped and I glowed with expectation. I was going to hear the magic password to a rich, full life from the master himself. "Yes sir?" I said. And he told me the three things. I regret that I've forgotten what they were. #Quote by Harpo Marx
Things I quotes by Tina Roth-Eisenberg
#101. I started a list of things I want to teach my children, and that list is eight points long. The first one is, do what you love. #Quote by Tina Roth-Eisenberg
Things I quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#102. I was an economist now turning into a human being - as if these are two different things. I don't know but I did that and then I had no vision. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Things I quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#103. I determine nothing; I do not comprehend things; I suspend judgment; I examine. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Things I quotes by R.K. Lilley
#104. I have many regrets, many bad things I must take credit for, but believe me when I say that the negative impact that all of my actions have had on your life is my biggest one. #Quote by R.K. Lilley
Things I quotes by Ben Hewitt
#105. Of all the things I want for them, connection to this place and a sense of knowing how they fit into this world usurps all others. I want this for them more than happiness, because I think mere happiness is a shallow elucidation of the human experience, and by itself is not a particularly sturdy emotional foundation upon which to build a fulfilling life. I want this for them more than success, at least insofar as our culture has come to define success as being a product of money and power and recognition. I want this for them more than physical vitality, because I believe that good health--and not just health of body, but also of emotion and spirit--is only possibly when one feels connected to and secure in their place. #Quote by Ben Hewitt
Things I quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#106. Mother, why are you breaking your beautiful things?' I asked ...
'Because I love them so much. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Things I quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#107. I lose things. I write things and they disappear from my desk, my life. I move a lot. I wanted to gather them and put them under one roof, under one cover, so I could document my life in a series of snapshots. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Things I quotes by Todd Akin
#108. I stand up for the things I believe in. #Quote by Todd Akin
Things I quotes by David Beckham
#109. I always wanted kids I could take to work, and for them to experience the things I experience. So, having three boys as a footballer was a dream. #Quote by David Beckham
Things I quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#110. What use is care? What good is watching for that matter? People are forever watching things. They should be seeing. I see the things I look at. I am a see-er. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Things I quotes by Pamela Anderson
#111. I do a lot for PETA. I do a lot of things I think are really important, I volunteer at school and I'm still amazed I can pay my bills because I feel like I don't work that much, I really don't. #Quote by Pamela Anderson
Things I quotes by Mark Haddon
#112. I think I would make a very good astronaut.
To be a good astronaut you have to be intelligent and I'm intelligent. You also have to understand how machines work and I'm good at understanding how machines work. You also have to be someone who would like being on their own in a tiny spacecraft thousands and thousands of miles away from the surface of the earth and not panic or get claustrophobia or homesick or insane. And I really like little spaces, so long as there is no one else in them with me. Sometimes when I want to be on my own I get into the airing cupboard outside the bathroom and slide in beside the boiler and pull the door closed behind me and sit there and think for hours and it makes me feel very calm.
So I would have to be an astronaut on my own, or have my own part of the space craft which no one else could come into.
And also there are no yellow things or brown things in a space craft, so that would be okay too.
And I would have to talk to other people from Mission Control, but we would do that through a radio linkup and a TV monitor, so they wouldn't be like real people who are strangers, but it would be like playing a computer game.
Also I wouldn't be homesick at all because I'd be surrounded by things I like, which are machines and computers and outer space. And I would be able to look out of a little window in the spacecraft and know that there was no one near me for thousands and thousands of miles, which is what I sometimes preten #Quote by Mark Haddon
Things I quotes by Joan Biskupic
#113. [Sonia Sotomayor] maintained tight bonds with her Hispanic community. On the May 25, 2009, evening that President Obama had called to offer her the nomination, he had asked her to promise him two things: 'The first,' she recalled, 'was to remain the person I was and the second was to stay connected to my community. I said to him that those were two easy promises to make, because those two things I could not change. #Quote by Joan Biskupic
Things I quotes by River Phoenix
#114. I sometimes lie, especially about personal things, because what does it matter? I am a kind of minute commodity, my name is no longer my own. #Quote by River Phoenix
Things I quotes by Lindy West
#115. I hate being fat. I hate the way people look at me, or don't. I hate being a joke; I hate the disorienting limbo between too visible and invisible; I hate the way that complete strangers waste my life out of supposed concern for my death. I hate knowing that if I did die of a condition that correlates with weight, a certain subset of people would feel their prejudices validated, and some would outright celebrate. I also love being fat. The breadth of my shoulders makes me feel safe. I am unassailable. I intimidate. I am a polar icebreaker. I walk and climb and lift things, I can open your jar, I can absorb blows - literal and metaphorical - meant for other women, smaller woman, breakable women women who need me. My bones feel like iron - heavy, but strong. I used to say that being fat in our culture was like drowning (in hate, in blame, in your own tissue), but lately I think it's more like burning. After three decades in the fire, my iron bones are steel. #Quote by Lindy West
Things I quotes by Georgia O'Keeffe
#116. It is really so nice here-country-busy-busy with so many different kinds of things- ... I must say I feel far away in another world here- ... always we go to a new place ... the people have a kind of gentleness that isn't usual on the mainland. #Quote by Georgia O'Keeffe
Things I quotes by Marsha Linehan
#117. I honestly didn't realize at the time that I was dealing with myself. But I suppose it's true that I developed a therapy that provides the things I needed for so many years and never got. #Quote by Marsha Linehan
Things I quotes by Noel Coward
#118. I'm over-educated in the things I shouldn't have known at all. #Quote by Noel Coward
Things I quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#119. I don't feel I write fast. I write in longhand and do so much revision. On the page, it's so old-fashioned. I could write a whole novel on scrap paper, scribbles and things. I keep looking at it and something develops. For me, using a word processor would mean staring at a screen for too many hours. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Things I quotes by W.S. Merwin
#120. Trees"

I am looking at trees
they may be one of the things I will miss
most from the earth
though many of the ones I have seen
already I cannot remember
and though I seldom embrace the ones I see
and have never been able to speak
with one
I listen to them tenderly
their names have never touched them
they have stood round my sleep
and when it was forbidden to climb them
they have carried me in their branches #Quote by W.S. Merwin
Things I quotes by Jeff Kinney
#121. My office doubles as a karaoke den for the neighborhood. There are strobe lights and Rock Band plastic guitars, a disco ball and a fog machine and some other things. I have a really long work day, and you might find me doing karaoke by myself late at night. #Quote by Jeff Kinney
Things I quotes by Larry Flynt
#122. Being in a wheelchair for 30 years. I'm not whining about it because I don't dwell on things I can't do anything about, you know. I never really think about until somebody mentions it. I did take a bullet. #Quote by Larry Flynt
Things I quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#123. And speaking of scary things, I need to leave. My guides are fading even as we speak. (Talon)
I hate when you commune with the dead in front of me. (Kyrian)
Are you the asshole who sent the 'I See Dead People' T-shirt to me? (Talon)
That would be Wulf. (Kyrian) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Things I quotes by Tim McGraw
#124. I didn't want to play a rancher. I didn't want to have a cowboy hat on; I wanted to get away from that in the things I do. But I read the script and fell in love with it. As hard as I tried to say no, I couldn't. #Quote by Tim McGraw
Things I quotes by Ovid
#125. I hate, and yet must love the thing I hate. #Quote by Ovid
Things I quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#126. There were things I wanted to tell him. But I knew they would hurt him. So I buried them, and let them hurt me. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Things I quotes by Maria Menounos
#127. One of the first things I did was interview the President of the United States. Some people work their whole lives and can't interview someone of that stature. #Quote by Maria Menounos
Things I quotes by Kaori Yuki
#128. I see now ... The most important things I have ... I lose them, no matter how much I care for them. #Quote by Kaori Yuki
Things I quotes by Ron Jaworski
#129. One of the things I noticed more in this draft than in any recent drafts was the importance of the character issue. Players who had baggage, like Justice, fell much farther than his talent dictated. But a lot of coaches didn't want to take the chance. #Quote by Ron Jaworski
Things I quotes by Jackee Harry
#130. I just remember lot of men running around in little tiny gold shorts! The format - it was kind of hard. You really have to know about pop culture and I'm not really knowledgeable about a lot of those things. I know what I like. They'd ask about Gwyneth Paltrow, and I don't know anything about her, except her mother. I know who her mother is. So you really have to be current and relevant. #Quote by Jackee Harry
Things I quotes by Taylor Swift
#131. I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I've just added more things to my list. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Things I quotes by Katie Holmes
#132. I really can't deny it, I am who I am. I'm pretty normal. I'm not that smooth type of girl. I run into things, I trip, I spill food. I say stupid things ... I really don't have it all together. #Quote by Katie Holmes
Things I quotes by Amy Chua
#133. When my kids wanted to give up on things, I wouldn't let them, and those are lifelong lessons. #Quote by Amy Chua
Things I quotes by Catie Curtis
#134. I want to convey that there is hope? that we're a world that is in turmoil but there is hope. I'm always amazed at how much love is in people's hearts even when they disagree about things. I think it's important for people to come together in music. It reminds me of the Margaret Mead saying, 'Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. ' I think that's really true. #Quote by Catie Curtis
Things I quotes by Christina Hendricks
#135. I have classic and feminine taste. I'm definitely drawn to vintage-inspired and ladylike things. I like an accentuated waist, and a strong shoulder works well with my figure. #Quote by Christina Hendricks
Things I quotes by Michelle Pfeiffer
#136. Where I came from, the idea of going into show business was just ridiculous; in fact I didn't tell anybody because I knew people would laugh at me. So I sort of snuck around and got some pictures and got a resume together and, of course, lied and said I did all kinds of things I didn't do. #Quote by Michelle Pfeiffer
Things I quotes by Josh Hartnett
#137. I want to experiment; I want to keep growing. I didn't want to just sit back and rest on my haunches and do the things I knew I could do for a while. #Quote by Josh Hartnett

Things I quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#139. Damn it." He hauled me into his arms and held me close, breathing hard. "I've got about ten things I want to say to you right now. But at least nine of them would make me sound like a psycho."
In spite of the seriousness of the situation, I nearly smiled. "What's the tenth thing?" I asked his shirtfront.
He paused, considering it. "Never mind," he grumbled. "That one would make me sound like a psycho, too."
-Jack & Ella #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Things I quotes by Brene Brown
#140. I thought I'd find that Wholehearted people were just like me and doing all of the same things I was doing: working hard, following the rules, doing it until I got it right, always trying to know myself better, raising my kids exactly by the books ... #Quote by Brene Brown
Things I quotes by Jarod Kintz
#141. I collect the most valuable thing in the world - free time. But unlike other priceless things, I don't need a safe to keep it safe, because I keep all my free time in the past, where nobody can touch it - not even me. My collection grows larger every day. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Things I quotes by Neige
#142. What excites me is to know I don't have any limits, that it's quite an open project, more open than I thought it could be. To have this freedom to try very different things. I listen to lots of music from every genre. #Quote by Neige
Things I quotes by Rahki

Things I quotes by Harry Belafonte
#145. When I was 40 and looking at 60, it seemed like a thousand miles away. But 62 feels like a week and a half away from 80. I must now get on with those things I always talked about doing but put off. #Quote by Harry Belafonte
Things I quotes by Michelle M. Pillow
#146. Out of all the things I do, I think being a mom is the most important and satisfying. #Quote by Michelle M. Pillow
Things I quotes by Mark Manson
#147. In my life, I have given a fuck about many people and many things. I have also not given a fuck about many people and many things. And like the road not taken, it was the fucks not given that made all the difference. #Quote by Mark Manson
Things I quotes by Biz Stone
#148. The two things I use the most are the MacBook Air and my iPhone. Those are my two most-used gadgets that are dented, scratched and smashed. #Quote by Biz Stone
Things I quotes by Jonathan Meades
#149. I like irrational things. I like scenarios where I can think, 'It would be great if at this point we could do x.' And there doesn't have to be a reason for 'x'. #Quote by Jonathan Meades
Things I quotes by Meghan Daum
#150. I started my professional career before the blogosphere existed in any sort of meaningful way. I think that my approach as a writer was certainly freer because I wasn't worried, I didn't have commenters on me right from the get-go. I didn't have this instant-reaction culture that young writers have to deal with now. I had different things - I was listed in the phone book and people would look me up and call me and yell at me, but that was about as bad as it got. #Quote by Meghan Daum
Things I quotes by Catherine Lacey
#151. information that my husband had archived - things I had done, he had done, words I had said, he had said, verbatim sentences he could remember spoken by himself or others or me, things we'd seen or done or places we'd been, verbatim places, verbatim people, exactly precisely factually factual things he could remember that I could not or could not quite, completely, remember. So my husband was this constant fact-checker of my life and the idea of him making things up, intentionally or not, had occurred to me, that maybe many of the things he had told me had happened, had, perhaps, never happened - Elyria, when did it occur #Quote by Catherine Lacey
Things I quotes by Warren Buffett
#152. Talking to Time Magazine a few years back, Peter Drucker got to the heart of things: "I will tell you a secret: Dealmaking beats working. Dealmaking is exciting and fun, and working is grubby. Running anything is primarily an enormous amount of grubby detail work . . . dealmaking is romantic, sexy. That's why you have deals that make no sense. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Things I quotes by George MacDonald
#153. Above all things, I delight in listening to stories, and sometimes in telling them. #Quote by George MacDonald
Things I quotes by Stephen Chow
#154. Why do I use the same actors in different movies? One of the things I really stress in casting is I need to find someone who is suitable for the role in the movie. That's always the main reason. #Quote by Stephen Chow
Things I quotes by Elliott Smith
#155. There are lots of things I like about playing in a band, the things I can't do by myself you know. #Quote by Elliott Smith

Things I quotes by Carey Mulligan
#157. It was my dream for years ... to train. Dominic [Cooper] went and he's doing alright. But some people don't go and do brilliantly. Although I think there are things I missed from not having trained. I think I'd be more confident on stage had I gone because I think it means you're equipped with better vocal training and things like that. #Quote by Carey Mulligan
Things I quotes by Eve Ensler
#158. One of the things I think about when we talk about a violence,and relationship to spirituality is that it seems to me when you take something from someone that isn't yours or you hurt someone else, fundamentally, you actually do that to yourself. You actually unmake yourself, you work against your own being and your own matter. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Things I quotes by Wayne Dyer
#159. In the retail business, many people are too consumed with the bottom line. How much am I going to be selling? Am I going to be able to do all the things I need to get done? Instead, if they are at peace and feeling good about themselves - if they are treating customers with love and acting as statesmen and stateswomen and people who are connected to God in a spiritual sense - then every day for them is a real joy. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Things I quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#160. The cheapest way to travel, and the way to travel the farthest in the shortest distance, is to go afoot, carrying a dipper, a spoon, and a fish line, some Indian meal, some salt, and some sugar ... Any one of these things I mean, not all together. I have traveled thus some hundreds of miles without taking any meal in a house, sleeping on the ground when convenient, and found it cheaper, and in many respects more profitable, than staying at home. So that some have inquired why it would not be best to travel always. But I never thought of traveling simply as a means of getting a livelihood. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Things I quotes by Herman Koch
#161. We shouldn't want to force anyone to read, just as little as we should want to force people to go to the movies, listen to music, have sex, or consume alcoholic beverages. Literature doesn't belong in a secondary school. No, it belongs more on the list of things I just mentioned. The list that includes sex and drugs, all the things that give us pleasure without any external coercion. A required reading list? How dare we! #Quote by Herman Koch
Things I quotes by Pamela Adlon
#162. One of the things I learned in animation is that you never, ever want to start doing a voice that you can't sustain for four straight hours. #Quote by Pamela Adlon
Things I quotes by Rachel Gibson
#163. He lifted his gaze to hers. "I have a lot of other things I should be doing, but I'm here." He stared into her eyes for several heartbeats before he returned his attention to the big box. "I've tried to stay away. After you threw me out of the house, I thought it was probably for the best. You're a distraction, and I don't need a distraction right now." He handed the screwdriver back to her and ripped the box open with his big hands. "I've got tapes I need to review, and plays I need to go over in my head before today's practice, yet here I am. Putting baby furniture together for you because I can't get you out of my head. I plug in a tape, and all I do is think about you." He peeled back the cardboard and reached for the instruction sheet that had fallen to the floor. "But the thing is, Adele, I'm not really sure whether you want me to be here or not." His polo shirt pulled out of the waistband of his Levi's and slid up the tan muscles of his back. He straightened and looked at her over the top of the instructions. "I don't know what you want. #Quote by Rachel Gibson

Things I quotes by Manolo Blahnik
#165. You'd see extraordinary-looking people around in the '70s. It was so exciting! You'd have mad people, like Gerlinde [Kostiff] riding around on her bicycle with a huge hat. Everybody was doing things. I don't have any bad memories of that period. #Quote by Manolo Blahnik
Things I quotes by Yi Sun-sin
#166. My life is simple, my food is plain, and my quarters are uncluttered. In all things, I have sought clarity. I face the troubles and problems of life and death willingly. Virtue, integrity and courage are my priorities. I can be approached, but never pushed; befriended but never coerced; killed but never shamed. #Quote by Yi Sun-sin
Things I quotes by Teddy Pendergrass
#167. I don't ever feel that it's necessary to say certain things. I think we can be very suggestive. I think we can allude to certain things. #Quote by Teddy Pendergrass
Things I quotes by Lorraine Toussaint
#168. As a modern woman, there are things I take for granted, and that shows up in the way I sit, the way I walk, the way I think, and what I know to be possible. #Quote by Lorraine Toussaint
Things I quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#169. I wish you were a mind-reader. I want you to know everything but I don't want to have to tell you. Because there are some things I don't want to say out loud. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Things I quotes by Gena Showalter
#170. You speak what you believe, and you believe you're doomed. If there's one thing I've learned throughout the years, it's that what you believe is the impetus for your entire life. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Things I quotes by Daniel Gottlieb
#171. Last month, on a very windy day, I was returning from a lecture I had given to a group in Fort Washington. I was beginning to feel unwell. I was feeling increasing spasms in my legs and back and became anxious as I anticipated a difficult ride back to my office. Making matters worse, I knew I had to travel two of the most treacherous high-speed roads near Philadelphia – the four-lane Schuylkill Expressway and the six-lane Blue Route.

You've been in my van, so you know how it's been outfitted with everything I need to drive. But you probably don't realize that I often drive more slowly than other people. That's because I have difficulty with body control. I'm especially careful on windy days when the van can be buffeted by sudden gusts. And if I'm having problems with spasms or high blood pressure, I stay way over in the right hand lane and drive well below the speed limit.

When I'm driving slowly, people behind me tend to get impatient. They speed up to my car, blow their horns, drive by, stare at me angrily, and show me how long their fingers can get. (I don't understand why some people are so proud of the length of their fingers, but there are many things I don't understand.) Those angry drivers add stress to what already is a stressful experience of driving.

On this particular day, I was driving by myself. At first, I drove slowly along back roads. Whenever someone approached, I pulled over and let them pass. But as I neared the Blue Route, #Quote by Daniel Gottlieb
Things I quotes by Frank Miller
#172. I think most things I read on the Internet and in newspapers are propaganda. Everyone from the 'New York Times' to Rupert Murdoch has a point of view and is putting forth their own propaganda. They're stuck with the facts as they are, but the way they interpret and frame them is wildly different. #Quote by Frank Miller
Things I quotes by Rick Riordan
#173. Call me close-minded, but hearing my girlfriend talk like a five-thousand-year-old male god was not on my top ten list of Things I Find Attractive. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Things I quotes by Liz Reinhardt
#174. You make me believe in a lot of things I never thought I would #Quote by Liz Reinhardt
Things I quotes by Jimmy Dean
#175. A lot of things I am, and a lot of things I am not. But I think I'm about as good an American as there is. I love this country. It's been very, very good to me. And it will be good to anybody if they are willing to give of themselves. #Quote by Jimmy Dean
Things I quotes by Tony Stewart
#176. I'm going to live my life. It's nobody else's decision, but mine. I think there are a lot worse things I could be doing with my life than what I choose to do ... #Quote by Tony Stewart
Things I quotes by Nenia Campbell
#177. Why me?"
"Because I lie awake at night, dreaming of all the things I want to do to your body, of leaving marks on your skin so that everyone knows that you are mine. And only mine." He leaned back against one of the larger metal tables. "But you fight yourself even as you fight me, and I love that, too. I love watching you squirm, because it gives me some idea of how you'll look when I'm inside you. I want to be your last thought at night, and your first taste at dawn. I want to teach you, own you, control you. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Things I quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#178. If I had not had so much ambition and not tried to do so many things, I probably would have been happier, but less useful. #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Things I quotes by Thomas Sowell
#179. Looking at old photographs makes it hard for me to believe that I was ever that thin physically. And remembering some of the things I did in those days makes it hard to believe that I was ever that thin mentally. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Things I quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#180. Logic is the science not of external forms of thought, but of the laws of development "of all material, natural and spiritual things", i.e., of the development of the entire concrete content of the world and of its cognition, i.e., the sum-total, the conclusion of the History of knowledge of the world. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Things I quotes by Dan Fouts
#181. When you work with a legend as I do, it's wonderful. There's so many things I've learned working with Keith. He's so patient, not only with me, but with everyone in our crew and with the audience and with the game. He has a style that is so easy and will never be copied. #Quote by Dan Fouts
Things I quotes by Sheila Heti
#182. There's so much writing I could have done and so many ideas that I had and so many things I wanted to work on that I didn't. I like too much having things in my head rather than doing the work. #Quote by Sheila Heti
Things I quotes by Lisa J. Shultz
#183. I felt that days, weeks, months, and years of my life were wasted by the removal of stuff. There were more important things I would rather have been doing. But I continued, and eventually, I felt lighter and freer than I had ever felt in the years of big houses with each room filled to the brim. #Quote by Lisa J. Shultz
Things I quotes by Neil Gaiman
#184. God who knows all things, I have no prayer book and I do not know any prayers by heart. But you know all the prayers. You are God. So this is what I am going to do. I am going to say the alphabet, and I will let you put the words together. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Things I quotes by Nick Miller
#185. Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part - sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety ... Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex becomes a chore, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness ... The worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things ... that's when you know - that's when you know you're good at love. #Quote by Nick Miller
Things I quotes by Daniel Keyes
#186. Thank God for books and music and things I can think about. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Things I quotes by David Duchovny
#187. As names that can mean things, I prefer spiritual to a lot of other things. #Quote by David Duchovny
Things I quotes by Jason Medina
#188. Hey, I knows things. I can take you places, but you gots to be willin' to do certain... things. #Quote by Jason Medina
Things I quotes by Lex Martin
#189. I don't show a lot of things. I don't know if that's good or bad. #Quote by Lex Martin
Things I quotes by KRS-One
#190. I make intelligence cool. I make spirituality cool. If we can make one's devotion to God cool, then I think I did a great thing. I can rest in peace. #Quote by KRS-One
Things I quotes by Anonymous
#191. I love you," he says as he stares into my eyes; I fight not to look away. "You may not hear me say this much, and you might even question it because of the way I am, or the things I do, but when you do, think back to this moment and know that it will never change. #Quote by Anonymous
Things I quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#192. Years ago a friend and fellow writer, Nick Antosca, once made a remark about it being best not to threaten, but to simply act. An effective way of going about things, I think. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Things I quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#193. What was in the bags?" she asked softly.
"Florida mud," he answered. "That was one of two true things I told you. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Things I quotes by Philip Guston
#194. The things I felt ... about certain painters of the past that ... inspired me, like Cezanne and Manet ... that complete losing of oneself in the work to such an extent that the work itself ... felt as if a living organism was posited there on the canvas, on this surface ... That's truly ... the act of creation. #Quote by Philip Guston
Things I quotes by Nadair Desmar
#195. Things I hate comes with a pain. #Quote by Nadair Desmar
Things I quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#196. I could not separate the Bird Refuge from my family. Devastation respects no boundaries. The landscape of my childhood and the landscape of my family, the two things I had always regarded as bedrock, were now subject to change. Quicksand. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Things I quotes by Andy Weir
#197. The thing that is really hard about adaptation is that I try to only pick things I love because if it is something where you think, "Oh, that sounds like an interesting idea but I don't love it," then I can't do my job well. #Quote by Andy Weir
Things I quotes by Roy Lichtenstein
#198. But when I worked on a painting I would do it from a drawing but I would put certain things I was fairly sure I wanted in the painting, and then collage on the painting with printed dots or painted paper or something before I really committed it. #Quote by Roy Lichtenstein
Things I quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#199. I might appear confident and chatty, but I spend most of my time laughing at jokes I don't find funny, saying things I don't really mean - because at the end of the day that's what we're all trying to do: fit in, one way or another, desperately trying to pretend we're all the same. #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Things I quotes by Mat Kearney
#200. I love creating. I am addicted to the drug of creation and creating things. I get a little depressed when I am struggling to find what I know is locked inside. If it's a lyric or something that is challenging me, I can be very depressed, but when it's like heaven opens up and it gives you a song, it's amazing. There's nothing else that I enjoy more probably. #Quote by Mat Kearney
Things I quotes by Babbie Mason
#201. Are you discouraged by burdens that weigh heavily on your heart? The key to victory is found in the words you speak. You can bring yourself down by speaking negative words. Or you can let your own words pull you up... Go into your prayer closet and ask God to help you see things from His point of view... #Quote by Babbie Mason
Things I quotes by John Kehoe
#202. If we work for social change - and it is good to do such things - let us always do it with an awakened heart big enough for all. There is no enemy; there is only ignorance. There is no one to hate, only many to love. #Quote by John Kehoe
Things I quotes by Osho
#203. Start meditating. Start putting off the constant chattering of the head. Slowly, the mind becomes quiet. Get into things where the mind is not needed - for example, dancing. Dance, and dance to abandon, because in dance the mind is not needed. You can lose yourself in a dance. In losing yourself in a dance, the heart will start functioning again. Drown yourself in music. And slowly you will see that there is a totally different world of the heart. And in the heart there is always trust. The heart does not know how to doubt, just as the mind does not know how to trust. #Quote by Osho
Things I quotes by Francis Thompson
#204. Spring is come home with her world-wandering feet, And all things are made young with your desires. #Quote by Francis Thompson
Things I quotes by Susanna Kaysen
#205. A thought is a hard thing to control. #Quote by Susanna Kaysen
Things I quotes by Ishmael
#206. If you can't even manage to to force your own presumably democratic governments to allow you to do good things for yourselves, then you probably deserve to become extinct. #Quote by Ishmael
Things I quotes by Ann Howard Creel
#207. makes us no promises, no guarantees. Things move toward us whether we want them or not. Accidents occur, illnesses strike, and bombs fall. One street can be pulverized, the next one over not even scratched. Chance is so shifty and arbitrary. #Quote by Ann Howard Creel
Things I quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#208. The wise man will follow a star, low and large and fierce in the heavens, but the nearer he comes to it the smaller and smaller it will grow,
till he finds it the humble lantern over some little inn or stable. Not till we know the high things shall we know how lowly they are. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Things I quotes by Nicola Yoon
#209. It's not decent to be good at everything. Three or four things at the most. Even that is pushing the bounds of good taste. #Quote by Nicola Yoon
Things I quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#210. There is in certain ancient things a trace
Of some dim essence --
More than form or weight;
A tenuous aether, indeterminate,
Yet linked with all the laws of time and space.
A faint, veiled sign of continuities
That outward eyes can never quite descry;
Of locked dimensions harboring years gone by,
And out of reach except for hidden keys. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Things I quotes by Debra Webb
#211. There are few things in life as precious to us as our children. Rare is the woman or the man who wouldn't readily die for his or her offspring. #Quote by Debra Webb
Things I quotes by Frederick Lenz
#212. Within silence all things are contained. What appears to our eyes to be life is but a thin curtain, a gauze penumbra, which stultifies our vision, which prevents us from seeing the truth. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Things I quotes by Ariana Franklin
#213. The scar, and her indifference to it, did something extraordinary for her, just as damage to some art object threw into relief how beautiful it had once been, tarnishing and tempering her face with the reminder of what humanity did to lovely things and how they bore it. #Quote by Ariana Franklin
Things I quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#214. In the world even the best things are worthless without those who represent them: those representers, the people call great men. Little #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Things I quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#215. It never ocurred to him that he was a passive thing, acted upon by an influence above and beyond Gloria, that he was merely the sensitive plate on which the photograph was made. Some gargantuan photographer had focused the camera on Gloria and Snap! - the poor plate could but develop, confined like all things to its nature. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Things I quotes by Saji Ijiyemi
#216. Innovation is finding a better way to make things a little better. #Quote by Saji Ijiyemi
Things I quotes by Joan Didion
#217. All of these things we do without children, and suddenly we don't do them anymore, and it comes home to us in a real way, that it's very different to have the responsibility of a child. #Quote by Joan Didion
Things I quotes by Victoria Finlay
#218. The probable reason that nobody at Mikimoto wanted a writer to go to the pearl farms of Ago…was because something terrible was happening in that bay. Since the 1990s, pollution has been pouring into the water, partly as a result of careless husbandry but also from untreated sewage from all the hotels that bring people in to enjoy the 'unspoiled wilderness'. No wonder the Japanese farmers were pulling out their oysters after just nine months: any longer than that and they risked losing most of their stock to the effluent in the water - it was killing the akoya oysters… Similar things are happening in Lake Biwa… Thanks to the pollution in the area, production at Lake Biwa has now declined almost to the point of nonexistence. #Quote by Victoria Finlay
Things I quotes by Donald Miller
#219. And that's the tricky thing about life, really, that the things we want most will kill us. #Quote by Donald Miller
Things I quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#220. Satan will tempt you with many things in life, but the most powerful is the temptation to be grateful for what you have, when it is not the best life God had to offer you. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Things I quotes by Robert Lanza
#221. But perhaps we can grant that something happens when the thinking mind takes a vacation. Absence of verbal thought or day-dreaming clearly doesn't mean torpor and vacuity. Rather, it's as if the seat of consciousness escapes from its jumpy, nervous, verbal isolation cell and takes residence in some other section of the theater, where the lights shine more brightly and where things feel more direct, more real. On what street is this theater found? Where are the sensations of life? #Quote by Robert Lanza
Things I quotes by Holly Bourne
#222. The true test of life isn't how you cope when everything is going in your favour; it's how you deal with things that could destroy you, if you let them. #Quote by Holly Bourne
Things I quotes by Alister E. McGrath
#223. The stories of Narnia seem childish nonsense to some. But to others, they are utterly transformative. For the latter group, these evocative stories affirm that it is possible for the weak and foolish to have a noble calling in a dark world; that our deepest intuitions point us to the true meaning of things; that there is indeed something beautiful and wonderful at the heart of the universe; and that this may be found, embraced, and adored. #Quote by Alister E. McGrath
Things I quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#224. The solution to depression, among other things, is to go within and see if you can tune into more of what might want to come forth out of you. Then take action to follow the path of what attracts you. Reach out, read a book, call a friend, join an organization. Go toward that which attracts you. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Things I quotes by Jeremy Robert Johnson
#225. The standard freak show chic bullshit which had beset the generation after mine thanks to a string of wildly successful reality shows centering on competitive body modification. I'd had fun watching Manual Mutants and Oddfellas when they first started, but then The League of Zeroes came along and made things too grotesque. They lost me when Rectal Rachelle died on the table during her ass-neck implant surgery. #Quote by Jeremy Robert Johnson
Things I quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#226. That night, after Gansey had gone to meet Blue, Ronan retrieved one of Kavinsky's green pills from his still-unwashed pair of jeans and returned to bed. Propped up in the corner, he stretched out his hand to Chainsaw, but she ignored him. She had stolen a cheese cracker and now was very busily stacking things on top of it to make sure Ronan would never take it back. Although she kept glancing back at his outstretched hand, she pretended not to see it as she added a bottle cap, an envelope, and a sock to the pile hiding the cracker. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Things I quotes by Teju Cole
#227. In a Transtromer poem, you inhabit space differently; a body becomes a thing, a mind floats, things have lives, and even non-things, even concepts, are alive. #Quote by Teju Cole
Things I quotes by Paul Walker
#228. I'm one of those people that think certain things happen at certain times for all the right reasons. #Quote by Paul Walker
Things I quotes by Richard Rodriguez

Things I quotes by John Calvin
#232. Faithful is the Lord, who has made himself our debtor, not by receiving any thing from us, but by promising us all things, (August. in Ps. 32, 109, et alibi). #Quote by John Calvin
Things I quotes by Mark Galli
#233. This is part of what it means to become holy, to be refined by fire. Difficulties and sufferings are God's form of hazing. Sometimes it gets so hard, we think Him cruel. But He's only looking for men and women who will keep their cool when things go horribly wrong, a people prepared to dash into burning rooms to rescue those about to be engulfed in flames. #Quote by Mark Galli
Things I quotes by Ian Rush
#234. You've got to have a dream ... if you don't have any big dreams, nothing happens. #Quote by Ian Rush
