Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Brent Weeks
#1. As the Strategist had said, if you want your enemy to fight to the death, cut off all escape; if you want your enemy to retreat, leave a path open. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Edward Gibbon
#2. In the reign of the emperor Caracalla, an innumerable swarm of Suevi appeared on the banks of the Main, and in the neighbourhood of the Roman provinces, in quest either of food, of plunder, or of glory. The hasty army of volunteers gradually coalesced into a great and permanent nation, and, as it was composed from so many different tribes, assumed the name of Alemanni, or Allmen, to denote at once their various lineage and their common bravery.31 The latter was soon felt by the Romans in many a hostile inroad. The Alemanni fought chiefly on horseback; but their cavalry was rendered still more formidable by a mixture of light infantry selected from the bravest and most active of the youth, whom frequent exercise had enured to accompany the horsemen in the longest march, the most rapid charge, or the most precipitate retreat.32 #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Daniel Gray
#3. Being a football fan entitles us to a temporary, recurring retreat, a short holiday from real existence. Our lives can be in chaos and nothing seem fixed. Nothing except how we feel on a Saturday at 3pm, when we are elevated into blissful and infuriating distraction. What a privilege that is. #Quote by Daniel Gray
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Chris Brogan
#4. What you don't do is surrender. You might retreat occasionally, but you don't give up. #Quote by Chris Brogan
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#5. His mood is one of strenuous weariness; he does his duty as a good soldier, waiting for the sound of the trumpet which shall sound the retreat; he has not that cheerful confidence which led Socrates through a life no less noble, to a death which was to bring him into the company of gods he had worshipped and men whom he had revered. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Roland Barthes
#6. There is only one way left to escape the alienation of present day society: to retreat ahead of it. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Oswald Chambers
#7. To live a distant, withdrawn, and secluded life is diametrically opposed to spirituality as Jesus Christ taught it. The true test of our spirituality occurs when we come up against injustice, degradation, ingratitude, and turmoil, all of which have the tendency to make us spiritually lazy. While being tested, we want to use prayer and Bible reading for the purpose of finding a quiet retreat. We use God only for the sake of getting peace and joy. We seek only our enjoyment of Jesus Christ, not a true realization of Him. This is the first step in the wrong direction. All these things we are seeking are simply effects, and yet we try to make them causes. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Channing Tatum
#8. In wrestling, there is no retreat. No way to slow things down. In wrestling, you advance and advance, and being tired is just a lie to make the other guy think he can relax. It's so hard - harder than anything I've ever done. #Quote by Channing Tatum
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#9. She had hope in her heart but after a while, with each step forward, hope stepped back. And for the first time in months, the first time ever, she began to weep, and as she did she knew that with the retreat of hope her heart had finally caught up with her head. And as each tear spilled over she let them go, she was letting go. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Michael Denton
#10. In a very real sense, therefore, advocacy of the doctrine of continuity [i.e evolutionism] has always necessitated on retreat from pure empiricism [i.e., logic an observation], and contrary to what is widely assumed by evolutionary biologists today, it has always been the anti-evolutionists [i.e creationist], not the evolutionists, in the scientific community who have struck rigidly to the facts and adhered to a more strictly empirical approach ... It was Darwin the evolutionist who was retreating from the facts. #Quote by Michael Denton
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#11. A masterful retreat is itself a victory. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by William Gaddis
#12. Say a word, say a thousand to me on the telephone and I shall choose the wrong one to cling to as though you had said it after long deliberation when only I provoked it from you, I will cling to it from among a thousand, to be provoked and hurl it back with something I mean no more than you meant that, something for you to cling to and retreat clinging to. #Quote by William Gaddis
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#13. Retreat itself is often a plan of resistance and may be a precursor of great bravery and sacrifice. Every retreat is not cowardice which implies fear to die. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Sun Tzu
#14. When the enemy's envoy's speak in humble terms, but continues his preparations, he will advance. When their language is deceptive but the enemy pretentiously advances, he will retreat. When the envoys speak in apologetic terms, he wishes a respite. When without a previous understanding the enemy asks for a truce, he is plotting. When the enemy sees an advantage but does not advance to seize it, he is fatigued. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Max Delbruck
#15. The books of the great scientists are gathering dust on the shelves of learned libraries ... While the artist's communication is linked forever with its original form, that of the scientist is modified, amplified, fused with the ideas and results of others and melts into the stream of knowledge and ideas which forms our culture. The scientist has in common with the artist only this: that he can find no better retreat from the world than his work and also no stronger link with the world than his work. #Quote by Max Delbruck
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Daryl Gregory
#16. Drive safe, dress safe, live safe. Retreat to the safest place of all. #Quote by Daryl Gregory
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#17. Standing safely on the opposite bank with her dry maid, her dry escort, and a company of streaming horsemen, Philippa said scathingly, 'That's men for you. Cover the lady's retreat, the book says. A hundred years ago, maybe. And what stopped you from coming with me just now? I can swim, you know. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Mao Tse-tung
#18. This protracted war will pass through three stages. The first stage covers the period of the enemy's strategic offensive and our strategic defensive. The second stage will be the period of the enemy's strategic consolidation and our preparation for the counter-offensive. The third stage will be the period of our strategic counter-offensive and the enemy's strategic retreat. #Quote by Mao Tse-tung
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#19. Children learn what they live. Put kids in a class and they will live out their lives in an invisible cage, isolated from their chance at community; interrupt kids with bells and horns all the time and they will learn that nothing is important or worth finishing; ridicule them and they will retreat from human association; shame them and they will find a hundred ways to get even. The habits taught in large-scale organizations are deadly. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#20. I am a nice young girl here to pick up your granddaughter for the weekend ... We're going to a Bible retreat to scare the devil out of her. - Bones to Cat's grandparents #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Haylen Beck
#21. Margaret took Patrick's hand in hers. "Now you two," she said, "isn't it time you gave me another grandchild? We can't have Sean growing up an only child, like Patrick."
Patrick blushed and smiled as Margaret squeezed his knee. And Audra caught a glimpse of her function in the marriage, then. She shivered and counted the minutes until she could go home and retreat to the haze. #Quote by Haylen Beck
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#22. She was a flower that has been tempted forth into blossom, and has no retreat. He had her nakedness in his power. And who was he, what was he? A blind thing, a dark force, without knowledge. She wanted to preserve herself.

Then she gathered him to herself again and was satisfied for a moment. But as time went on, she began to realize more and more that he did not alter, that he was something dark, alien to herself. She had thought him just the bright reflex of herself. As the weeks and months went by she realized that he was a dark opposite to her, that they were opposites, not complements.

He did not alter, he remained separately himself, and he seemed to expect her to be part of himself, the extension of his will. She felt him trying to gain power over her, without knowing her. What did he want? Was he going to bully her? #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Kristen Proby
#23. Wasn't bothering you, I respond, happy that my voice is stronger with my anger, and retreat back another step. #Quote by Kristen Proby
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by James Baldwin
#24. There is an illusion about America, a myth about America to which we are clinging which has nothing to do with the lives we lead and I don't believe that anybody in this country who has really thought about it or really almost anybody who has been brought up against it
and almost all of us have one way or another
this collision between one's image of oneself and what one actually is is always very painful and there are two things you can do about it, you can meet the collision head-on and try and become what you really are or you can retreat and try to remain what you thought you were, which is a fantasy, in which you will certainly perish. #Quote by James Baldwin
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#25. At college, I was told there were four great women novelists in the 19th century – Jane Austen, George Eliot, Charlotte and Emily Brontë. Not one of them led an enviable life – all of them had to sacrifice ludicrously in order to be writers. I wasn't prepared to do that.

You could become ill so that you could retreat to the bedroom, avoid your domestic responsibilities and write like Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti. You had to forget about writing if you weren't prepared to sacrifice any other things you might want from life, like kids or lovers. It's not like that now. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by D.F. Monk
#26. Wynter's Pass was a picturesque region in the north of Vohlfhein, where the Bleak Hills eventually collapsed into the Frozen Sea. From the back of Mr. Buckles, who had been on a slow trot since sunrise, Monch watched the light glisten off of the frozen branches of the evergreens. As the sun warmed the frozen ground, sending the evening's frost into retreat, Monch absorbed the splendor of it all and wondered how expensive the local real estate must be around here. He then contemplated attempting to find an agent that would represent his interests well.

"This land is such a spectacular wonder," the Lion of Ahriman declared. "It would be very much sought after if they could just do something about the bears, the White Orts, the wolves, the bloodthirsty cannibals, the snow manapés, the frost wizards, the northern bandit gangs, the dire lynxes, the similarly sounding but not related pygmy bloodthirsty cannibals, the demon possessed yaks, the dead-soul animated trees, the..." Monch paused for a moment.

"It just occurred to me that this land is really not safe at all. It seems almost everything in it wants to kill me," the Templar admitted. #Quote by D.F. Monk
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Lori Foster
#27. Gathering her bags, Alani started around the side of her house to the front door.
She drew up short at the sight of Jackson sprawled on her porch steps, a cowboy hat on his head, mirrored sunglasses hiding his eyes.
He didn't move, and neither did she.
He had an utterly relaxed look about him. But then, Jackson had perfected a deceptively indolent pose that hid razor-sharp reflexes and phenomenal speed.
Last night, all night, he'd been far from indolent.
Breathing fast, Alani studied him. His continued stillness suggested sleep. Even when she inched closer, he didn't move.
He was now clean-shaven. A white T-shirt was pulled across his wide chest and shoulders, and hung looser around his taut abs.
Awareness stiffened her knees.
Memories of touching his body, tasting hit hot flesh, sent a tide of sensation through her veins. She swallowed audibly - and stared some more.
He sat with his long legs loose, one foot braced on a step, the other stretched out, his elbows back, his breathing deep and even.
Alani licked her lips and started to slowly, silently retreat.
"Don't make me chase you, darlin'."
Shock snapped her shoulders back. The big faker! He'd been watching her watch him. Teeth set, Alani asked, "What are you doing here?"
He gave a slow smile. "Whatever it takes . . . #Quote by Lori Foster
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#28. The nocturnal glory of being great without being
anything! The sombre majesty of splendours no one
knows ... And I suddenly experience the sublime feeling
of a monk in the wilderness or of a hermit in his retreat,
acquainted with the substance of Christ in the sands and
in the caves of withdrawal from the world. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Anna Banks
#29. I should have had Rachel write a note or something before we left. But knowing Rachel, she might have already thought of that.
In fact, knowing Rachel, she can probably make the absences disappear.
Am I really thinking about school when my mom and Galen are in trouble? Yes, yes I am. Because this is the life bequeathed to me. Part human, part fish. Part straight-A student, part possessor of the Gift of Poseidon. Yep, I'm a natural-born overachiever.
Fan-flipping-tastic.
Behind me, I hear the most obnoxious belch in history. "Excuse me," Toraf says. I hear him wrestle with his buckle and make a hasty retreat to the bathroom. And I'm officially glad I'm not sitting next to him. Let's face it. He's a loud puker.
Syrena were not meant to fly.
When we land, Toraf is asleep. He doesn't even wake up despite the wobbly landing and the giggling girls and the announcement of "Aloha" by the captain. When everyone has disembarked I make my way back to Toraf and shake him until he wakes up. His breath smells like slightly microwaved death.
"We're in Hawaii," I tell him. "Time to swim. #Quote by Anna Banks
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Conn Iggulden
#30. Keep a line of retreat,' Warwick ordered. To his disgust, his voice trembled and he cleared his throat loudly before going on with his orders.
'They are traitors all. We go in, kill as many as we can in the surprise, then pull back into …'
He looked around, seeing a small wooden signpost. He leaned closer to read it and for an instant raised his eyes to heaven. 'Back into Shiteburn Lane.'

It helped to explain what he had sunk ankle-deep into, at least. He spent a moment longing for wooden overshoes to raise him up above the slop, though he could hardly have fought in those. His boots would just have to be burned afterwards. #Quote by Conn Iggulden
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Napoleon Hill
#31. and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by George Washington
#32. I anticipate with pleasing expectations that retreat in which I promise myself to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my fellow citizens, the benign influence of good laws under a free government, the ever favorite object of my heart, and the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers. #Quote by George Washington
Vallombrosa Retreat quotes by Adyashanti
#33. Retreat is a response to the call of the heart-that call which beckons us toward reality, to the truth of our being, to that which is truly sane, really real and liberating ... When a group of people come together as a response to that kind of inward call, it creates a very powerful environment, where truth is held in the highest esteem and the reality of our being responds to that deepest intention. #Quote by Adyashanti
