Wonder What Happened quotes by Tony Robbins
#1. Meanings don't just affect the way we feel; they affect all of our relationships and interactions. Some people think the first ten years of a relationship is just the beginning; that they're just now getting to know each other, and it's really exciting. It's an opportunity to go deeper. Other people could be ten days into a relationship, and the first time they have an argument, they think it's the end.
Now tell me, if you think this is the beginning of a relationship, are you going to behave the same way as if it were the end? That one slight shift in perception, in meaning, can change your whole life in a moment. In the beginning of a relationship, if you're totally in love and attracted, what will you do for the other person? The answer is: anything! If he or she asks you to take out the trash, you might leap to your feet and say, "Anything that lights you up, sweetheart!" But after seven days, seven years, or seventy years, people say things like, "What the hell do you think I am, your janitor?!" And they wonder what happened to the passion in their life. I've often shared with couples having trouble in their relationships that if you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship, there wont be an end! Because in the beginning of the relationship, you were a giver, not an accountant. You weren't weighing constantly the meaning of who was giving more. Your entire focus was just lighting up that person, and his or her happiness made you feel like your life was #Quote by Tony Robbins
Wonder What Happened quotes by David Mitchell
#2. I wonder what happened to him, I wonder what happened to all of them, this wondering is the nature of matter, each of us a loose particle, an infinity of paths through the park, probable ones, improbable ones, none of them real until observed whatever real means, and for something so solid matter contains terrible, terrible, terrible expanses of nothing, nothing, nothing ... #Quote by David Mitchell
Wonder What Happened quotes by Julia David Levithan
#3. Think about it. People in the sixteenth century - not to mention in Jesus's time - didn't look like this: perfect skin, perfect hairdos, spotless clothes. These are people who went to the bathroom in the street, for God's sake. There's no way they looked like this. But that's how we're going to remember them. Our alabaster past. When nothing else is left, art will become the truth of the time. Then people will get to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and wonder what happened - how we all became so imperfect. #Quote by Julia David Levithan
Wonder What Happened quotes by James Russell Lingerfelt
#4. It's okay if you feel like you must leave. But as the years pass and you remember our time together and you're at a place or with a person who makes you wonder what happened to the goodness in humanity, if you ask yourself if you were ever loved by someone other than those within your immediate family, the answer is yes. There was a boy you knew in college who loved you. A part of him will love you the rest of his life. No matter how much land or ocean or time separates the two of you, he will be there for you if you ever need him. #Quote by James Russell Lingerfelt
Wonder What Happened quotes by John Tottenham
#5. I had a feeling once. I wonder what happened to it. #Quote by John Tottenham
Wonder What Happened quotes by John Lee Hooker
#6. I been doing the same things as in my younger days, when I was coming up, and now here I am, an old man, up there in the charts. And I say, well, what happened? Have they just thought up the real John Lee Hooker, is that it? And I think, well, I won't tell nobody else! I can't help but wonder what happened. #Quote by John Lee Hooker
Wonder What Happened quotes by Dan Millman
#7. There are times to let things happen, and times to make things happen. Now is that time. You will either make things happen, watch what happens, or wonder what happened. #Quote by Dan Millman
Wonder What Happened quotes by Robert Goolrick
#8. Every week, when I change the sheets, I look at the half of the bed that has not been slept in, as pristine as the day the sheets were changed, and I wonder what happened to the possibilities of my youth. No one has ever slept in that bed but me, and I have only slept on one side of it. In the same chaste, deathlike position every night. All those years. All those years that have passed, in the utter silence of that apartment - silent except for the clink of a knife against a fork, the shutting of a cabinet door, the opening of an envelope. #Quote by Robert Goolrick
Wonder What Happened quotes by Zan Perrion
#9. Thoreau wrote, "the mass of men live lives of quiet desperation." This is as true today as it was back then. How many men stand on a balcony and wonder what happened?... He wanted adventure and he got two weeks' vacation. He wanted a mission and he got a lawn that needs mowing. He wanted purpose and he got a cubicle. He wanted a mighty steed and he got a minivan. He wanted a castle and he got a mortgage. He wanted a battle to fight and he got televised sports. He wanted wisdom and he got talking heads on TV. He wanted treasure and he got endless debt. He wanted every part of his life to be wonderful, and here he is... standing on a balcony, in bleak, ruminating hesitation. #Quote by Zan Perrion
Wonder What Happened quotes by Ruth Reichl
#10. Tommy and I put on a radio play to entertain everyone while they unpacked their cookies. It was about a girl who saves up money for a prom dress, but at the last minute she says, "It's only clothes," and buys war bonds instead. The play was a big success, and my whole school pledged to buy war bonds, which should have made me happy. But it gave me a queer feeling; it's easy to write propaganda when everyone agrees with you. Do you understand? I think I'd rather bake cookies; it feels more honest.
Your friend,
Lulu


Sammy looked down at me. "A girl after your own heart!" he said. "In my experience it is a rare female who can say, 'It's only clothes,' and when the war came, you discovered who you really were. Women changed. Children grew up overnight. I wonder what happened to this one. #Quote by Ruth Reichl
Wonder What Happened quotes by Stephen Chbosky
#11. Sometimes, I look at my parents now and wonder what happened to make them the way they are. #Quote by Stephen Chbosky
Wonder What Happened quotes by Daniel J. Rice
#12. I often wonder what happened to those few I spent my youth in battle beside, those select individuals whom I was drawn to simply by coincidence, whom I joined forces with against an unknown future and a world so large that we depended upon each other because none of us knew a damn thing, and we were all so wise. #Quote by Daniel J. Rice
Wonder What Happened quotes by Jim Lovell
#13. There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen. #Quote by Jim Lovell
Wonder What Happened quotes by Nick Woodman
#14. I don't want to wake up and see my kids going off to college and wonder what happened. #Quote by Nick Woodman
Wonder What Happened quotes by Robert D. Hare
#15. He will choose you, disarm you with his words, and control you with his presence. He will delight you with his wit and his plans. He will show you a good time but you will always get the bill. He will smile and deceive you, and he will scare you with his eyes. And when he is through with you, and he will be through with you, he will desert you and take with him your innocence and your pride. You will be left much sadder but not a lot wiser, and for a long time you will wonder what happened and what you did wrong. And if another of his kind comes knocking on your door, will you open it?

-From an essay signed "A psychopath in prison #Quote by Robert D. Hare
Wonder What Happened quotes by Brandi Glanville
#16. Sure, it was scary as hell, and sometimes even now I wake up and wonder what happened to my picture-perfect life. But I'd rather struggle with my uncertainty and fear than continue to live a lie. It took me a while to figure that out, because the lie can be comfortable and easy. But I had to ask myself, What kind of life is that? #Quote by Brandi Glanville
Wonder What Happened quotes by Alex Bosworth
#17. Twenty years ago, chaos theory was all the rage. I wonder what happened with that. Maybe all the excitement over it become so organized that its initial entropy failed to fall apart and disintegrate into nothingness leaving its proponents re-illusioned in certainty. I remember seeing an employee at a local book store arranging a subsection for literature about chaos among the science books. "There's the problem." I thought. "How can there be a chaos section? Those books should be distributed randomly throughout the store... that is, if there was any real disorder to things. #Quote by Alex Bosworth
Wonder What Happened quotes by Paulo Coelho
#18. But every day we meet someone whose behavior suddenly changes from one moment to the next. And we wonder: what happened to this person I thought I knew? Why is he acting so aggressively? Is it stress at work?
And then the next day the person is normal again. You're relieved, but soon after the rug is pulled out from under you when you least expect it. And this time, instead of asking what's wrong with this person, you wonder what you did wrong. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Wonder What Happened quotes by C.S. Lewis
#19. In your life you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some that you wish you never have to think about again. But you do. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Wonder What Happened quotes by Neil Gaiman
#20. It's oneiric, a beautiful, formless sequence of silver nitrate shadows, and when it ends I wonder what happened, and then I begin to rebuild it in my head #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Wonder What Happened quotes by Carrie Ryan
#21. The living used to wonder what happened after death. She said that whole religions were born and evolved around this one simple uncertainty. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
Wonder What Happened quotes by Max Brooks
#22. So I put it out of its misery, if it really was miserable, and tried not to think about it. That was another thing they taught us at Willow Creek: don't write their eulogy, don't try to imagine who they used to be, how they came to be here, how they came to be this. I know, who doesn't do that, right? Who doesn't look at one of those things and just naturally start to wonder? It's like reading the last page of a book ... your imagination just naturally spinning. And that's when you get distracted, get sloppy, let your guard down and end up leaving someone else to wonder what happened to you. #Quote by Max Brooks
Wonder What Happened quotes by Ann Halam
#23. The plane blew up."
"I wonder what happened to all the other people?"
As soon as I'd spoken, I wished I hadn't said that. I decided shy people shouldn't try to make conversation, not even in an emergency. If I manage to talk to strangers at all, nervousness always makes me say the wrong thing. #Quote by Ann Halam
Wonder What Happened quotes by Brenna Aubrey
#24. Why would you introduce me to your family? Won't they wonder what happened, when we finally ... ?"
His eyes fixed on mine, serious, sincere. "Because you asked me and I wanted to show you."
"Asked you what?"
"You asked me who I love. They're who I love. #Quote by Brenna Aubrey
Wonder What Happened quotes by Mary Kay Ash
#25. There are four kinds of people in this world:

•those who make things happen
•those who watch things happen
•those who wonder what happened
•those who don't know that anything happened!

I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be first on that list. #Quote by Mary Kay Ash
Wonder What Happened quotes by Julianne Hough
#26. I'm actually pretty good at stripping, which makes me wonder what happened in my previous life. Funny enough, I don't wear a lot of clothes when I dance and it's very sexy, so it wasn't too hard to get into the motion of it. #Quote by Julianne Hough
Wonder What Happened quotes by Phil Harris
#27. Know what happened, wonder what happened or ignore what happened and i would not want to be 2 or 3 #Quote by Phil Harris
Wonder What Happened quotes by Douglas Adams
#28. Arthur Dent: What happens if I press this button?
Ford Prefect: I wouldn't-
Arthur Dent: Oh.
Ford Prefect: What happened?
Arthur Dent: A sign lit up, saying 'Please do not press this button again. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Wonder What Happened quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#29. The price of love doesn't come cheaply," she said. "But the cost is worth it."
(…)
Love should never, ever cost someone something. It should be a free exchange. What happened - she almost destroyed herself for me. I was not worth all that. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Wonder What Happened quotes by Margaret Atwood
#30. The world is being run by people my age, men my age, with falling-out hair and health worries, and it frightens me. When the leaders were older than me I could believe in their wisdom, I could believe they had transcended rage and malice and the need to be loved. Now I know better. I look at the faces in newspapers, in magazines, and wonder: what greeds, what furies drive them on? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Wonder What Happened quotes by Michael Winter
#31. A few years ago, I was trying to buy a piece of land next to a house I had in Newfoundland. I discovered that the plot had been owned by a family, and the son had gone off to World War I and been killed. It began to interest me: What would have happened on that land if the son had lived, had brought up his own family there? #Quote by Michael Winter
Wonder What Happened quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#32. You could not go back. If you did not go forward what happened? #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Wonder What Happened quotes by Iliza Shlesinger
#33. You know what happened the last time a group of people said, 'Screw it, we don't care what you think'? They got hung as witches. #Quote by Iliza Shlesinger
Wonder What Happened quotes by Shayna {Me}
#34. We can't expect life to stop for us, even though we all wish it could. We can't expect people to wait for us while we hide behind a sheet of glass, waiting until WE are ready for that boundary to be broken. What happened to taking a chance once in a while and simply hopping on board? Easier said than done, but it's true. So, the solution? Take someone on board with you. #Quote by Shayna {Me}
Wonder What Happened quotes by Sean Michael
#35. Rig looked over at Dick for a long minute and then shook his head and sighed, pushing the cake away. "I can't do this. Dick was right. I'm tearing us all apart and I hoped that... I wanted you two to be happy enough together that I wouldn't. All I could think in that ambulance was that I was losing you and it happened anyway. I'm sorry."
"No!" Dick shook his head and took Rigger's hand. "You only lose us if you keep pushing us away."
Rock didn't know what to say, he just knew he was more scared now than he had been when Julie had first called that night so many months ago now. He took Rigger's other hand and squeezed. "I'm a stubborn son of a bitch, Rig. I'm not going anywhere."
"I don't know if I can stay, Blue." Grey eyes landed on him, filled with tears. "I'm lost and can't seem to figure my way home." Rig's hand was trembling, holding him tight.
Rock thought it probably would have hurt less if Rigger had picked up the knife and stabbed him with it.
He slid from his chair and pulled Rig's so he could kneel between his lover's legs. His hands found their way into Rigger's shorn hair. "I will do anything, Rabbit. Anything. But I can't let you go. P-please don't ask me to let you go." His voice broke and he laid his head down against Rigger's belly, arms wrapping around the too-thin waist. #Quote by Sean Michael
Wonder What Happened quotes by Luke Hartwell
#36. That first Wednesday night alone the only thing of significance I discovered was just how wonderful it is to masturbate in an empty house. I was ashamed of myself, skipping church for that, but that's the sad truth. That's what happened.
I also watched TV. #Quote by Luke Hartwell
Wonder What Happened quotes by Bret Lott
#37. Tell the truth, but understand that it is not necessarily what happened," is one of the things she told him. "Every good story is a parable," is another. #Quote by Bret Lott
Wonder What Happened quotes by Hillary Clinton
#38. What happened in Flint is immoral. The children of Flint are just as precious as the children of any other part of America. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Wonder What Happened quotes by Larry Carlton
#39. It's the opportunity to play something completely different, responding to what happened just before you started to play, and I love that. #Quote by Larry Carlton
Wonder What Happened quotes by Anne Perry
#40. You start at the end, and then go back and write and go that way. Not everyone does, but I do. Some people just sit down at the page and start off. I start from what happened, including the why. #Quote by Anne Perry
Wonder What Happened quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#41. She's probably just tired of seeing you miserable.Like we all are," I add. "I'm sure...I'm sure she's as crazy about you as ever."
"Hmm." He watches me put away my own shoes and empty the contents of my pockets. "What about you?" he asks, after a minute.
"What about me?"
St. Clair examines his watch. "Sideburns. You'll be seeing him next month."
He's reestablishing...what? The boundary line? That he's taken, and I'm spoken for? Except I'm not. Not really.
But I can't bear to say this now that he's mentioned Ellie. "Yeah,I can't wait to see him again. He's a funny guy, you'd like him.I'm gonna see his band play at Christmas. Toph's a great guy, you'd really like him. Oh. I already said that,didn't I? But you would. He's really...funny."
Shut up,Anna. Shut.Up.
St. Clair unbuckles and rebuckles and unbuckles his watchband.
"I'm beat," I say. And it's the truth. As always, our conversation has exhausted me. I crawl into bed and wonder what he'll do.Lie on my floor? Go back to his room? But he places his watch on my desk and climbs onto my bed. He slides up next to me. He's on top of the covers, and I'm underneath. We're still fully dressed,minus our shoes, and the whole situation is beyond awkward.
He hops up.I'm sure he's about to leave,and I don't know whether to be relieved or disappointed,but...he flips off my light.My room is pitch-black. He shuffles back toward my bed and smacks into it.
"Oof," he says.
"Hey,there's a b #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
Wonder What Happened quotes by Robert Webb
#42. When I was 18, I was halfway up the Eiffel Tower with my friend, Tom, when we decided to stick our heads through the railings. The gap between the railings was exactly the right size to be able to put your head through and nearly get stuck. Which is exactly what happened. #Quote by Robert Webb
Wonder What Happened quotes by Gaylyn Williams
#43. More often than not, focusing on stress, pain and chaos in our lives creates even more stress, pain and chaos for us. Here's what I've experienced, and my guess is that it's happened to you as well: Whenever I am focused on how difficult my life is, I begin to feel overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, and worried. These emotions, in turn, influence my productivity, actions and choices. They may even change my sleeping patterns and compromise my immune system. Sooner or later they begin to interfere with my relationships with family and friends. They even hinder the way I worship or approach God. As these emotions continue to influence how I live, cope, function, and relate to those around me, they can even impact my finances and long-term security. #Quote by Gaylyn Williams
Wonder What Happened quotes by Melodie Ramone
#44. We were young. Love had a way of making us fearless because we knew that no matter what happened, if we fell on our face as we entered the ring or conquered the world in battle, in the end it would just be us, together. #Quote by Melodie Ramone
Wonder What Happened quotes by Yasunari Kawabata
#45. But this love would leave behind it nothing so definite as a piece of Chijimi. Though cloth to be worn is among the most short-lived of craftworks, a good piece of Chijimi, if it has been taken care of, can be worn quite unfaded a half-century and more after weaving. As Shimamura thought absently how human intimacies have not even so long a life, the image of Komako as the mother of another man's children suddenly floated into his mind. He looked around, startled. Possibly he was tired.

He had stayed so long that one might wonder whether he had forgotten his wife and children. He stayed not because he could not leave Komako nor because he did not want to. He had simply fallen into the habit of waiting for those frequent visits. And the more continuous the assault became, the more he began to wonder what was lacking in him, what kept him from living as completely. He stood gazing at his own coldness, so to speak. He could not understand how she had so lost herself. All of Komako came to him, but it seemed that nothing went out from him to her. He "heard in his chest, like snow piling up, the sound of Komako, an echo beating against empty walls. And he knew that he could not go on pampering himself forever.

He leaned against the brazier, provided against the coming of the snowy season, and thought how unlikely it was that he would come again once he had left. The innkeeper had lent him an old Kyoto teakettle, skillfully inlaid in silver with flowers and bi #Quote by Yasunari Kawabata
Wonder What Happened quotes by Emily Gould
#46. As a child I was a little bit disgusted and embarrassed to learn about the facts of life, and did not immediately connect the idea of "sex" to the feelings I got when I lay on the carpet on my stomach,idly humping a stuffed animal while watching Sesame Street. The realization that sex could be something to anticipate happily rather than to dread as another unpleasant grown-up duty came to me in a dream. Nothing overtly sexual even happened in this dream - it was a dream about lying in bed on a sunny afternoon with sun streaking the sheets, surrounded by warmth, feeling satisfied. It took life a long time for life to catch up with what this idealized version of sex could be like; it's still not like that every time, but when it is, I notice. #Quote by Emily Gould
Wonder What Happened quotes by John Knowles
#47. I had to be right in never talking about what you could not change, and I had to make many people agree that I was right. None of them ever accused me of being responsible for what had happened to Phineas, either because they could not believe it or because they could not understand it. I would have talked about that, but they would not, and I would not talk about Phineas in any other way. #Quote by John Knowles
Wonder What Happened quotes by Arianne Cohen
#48. Heights plummeted because of a little disaster called civilization. "Heights go way down when we go into state society," says Bogin. "When Egypt conquered the Nile area, the height of peasants fell dramatically. They moved from having access to a wide variety of foods to growing what the Egyptian state demanded. Their bones show lots of deficiencies in minerals and iron." The same stunting happened repeatedly throughout history. As late as the 1800s, male Cheyenne Indians, who hunted bison and collected berries, averaged a whopping 5'10", towering above even today's Americans, not to mention General Custer's cavalry, which averaged 5'7", and the period's wealthy European monarchies. #Quote by Arianne Cohen
Wonder What Happened quotes by Mary A. Wasowski
#49. I was ready to give up when my eyes find someone who wasn't familiar to me. For some reason, I feel drawn to her. What the hell? That's never happened to me before, not even with Jennifer.
"Hey, Sam, do you know that girl?"
Sam took the binoculars from me to take a look.
"No, never seen her before." I scaled my way down the wall, jumping onto the sand, as Sam called out to me.
"Hey! Where are you going dude?"
"To meet someone new. #Quote by Mary A. Wasowski
Wonder What Happened quotes by John Callaghan
#50. The UFO was bouncing around the 747. It was a huge ball with lights running around it ... Well, I've been involved in a lot of cover-ups with the FAA. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. But they never had me swear it never happened. I can tell you what I've seen with my own eyes. I've got a videotape. I've got the voice tape. I've got the reports that were filed that will confirm what I've been telling you. #Quote by John Callaghan
Wonder What Happened quotes by Missy Johnson
#51. It's amazing how quickly your life can chance, for the better or worse. That was the thing about life: you never knew what was waiting for you around the corner. Everyone faces obstacles, but it's how you deal with them that makes you the person you are. I treat everything that has happened to me thus far in life as a challenge that is there to help me be a better person. #Quote by Missy Johnson
Wonder What Happened quotes by Arnold Bennett
#52. Always behave as if nothing had happened, no matter what has happened. #Quote by Arnold Bennett
Wonder What Happened quotes by Richelle Mead
#53. That's not what I meant! What happened?"
He shrugged. "I told the truth."
"Adrian!"
"I'm serious. She asked me what my greatest strength was. I said getting along with people."
"That not bad," I admitted.
"Then she asked me what my greatest weakness was. And I said, 'Where should I start.'"
"Adrian! #Quote by Richelle Mead
Wonder What Happened quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#54. Thank you." After rounding the couch, the young queen sat her hip on the cushy armrest. Her thoughts went back to the impromptu party in the commissary the night before. "I assume no Mishmorats or Viiduns are missing. Do you know if any real mischief took place last night after we left?"

"None you need to worry about," Ian told her. She could see he was hiding something by the twinkle in his eye.

"What happened?" she asked, certain he had a story to tell.

"Let's just say there may be an influx of soldiers visiting your garden."

Her eyes scrunched, unable to guess what he was talking about. "Okay, and why?"

Ian's shoulders jostled with a snicker. "Efren showed off your garden to Kira last night. She discovered the warm pond. You know how your sisters have a fondness for swimming in their underclothes."

"Oh great," Eena groaned.

"But don't worry about it too much, Queenie, there is a deterrent." Ian let go a laugh he couldn't quite stifle.

"What deterrent?" she asked, grinning at his amusement.

"Shanks likes to swim too."

"Oh?"

"Actually, he prefers skinny dipping."

"Ew! Ew, Ian, like I need that image in my head!"

(Now you know how I feel on a regular basis,) he said, cracking up.

After a moment of grossing out, Eena all but begged Ian, "Please, can we change the subject. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Wonder What Happened quotes by Jacky Ickx
#55. In this kind of situation, we tend to cling to his convictions, we believe that, by magic, we are going to recover. Then we agree to drive less good cars and we are fatally more exposed. It is what finally happened to me with Ensign. #Quote by Jacky Ickx
Wonder What Happened quotes by Cambria Hebert
#56. We never really had a beginning. For months, we fought and insulted each other. Then we combusted into bed. We pretended what happened didn't matter, but it did, Blondie. You matter." "Braeden," I whispered and took a step farther into the room. He shook his head. "All the shit with Missy, and Zach ... hell, even with my father, it got in our way. I let it. This is me swearing I won't let it again. This is me swearing this is our beginning. You're it for me." He took a breath, and I watched his chest rise with it. His dark, chocolate eyes latched onto mine. "Because I still don't like you, Blondie." I started to roll my eyes. "I love you." My heart stopped. Everything stopped. That place deep down inside me burned and tingled. "I don't like you either." My voice wobbled. The intensity of his stare drilled right into me, like he was seating desperately for my reply. "I love you so damn much," I confessed.
-Braeden & Ivy #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Wonder What Happened quotes by Julia Quinn
#57. Did you wonder?" he whispered. "Did you leave me and wonder what I hadn't told you?" He leaned in, just so she'd feel his lips move whisper-light against her ear.
"Did you want to know what I did when I was wicked? Do you want me to tell you?" he murmured. He felt her jerk slightly in surprise, and he chuckled. "Not about them, Francesca. You. Only you."
-Michael Stirling #Quote by Julia Quinn
Wonder What Happened quotes by Walter F. Otto
#58. A man who is awake in the open field at night or who wanders over silent paths experiences the world differently than by day. Nighness vanishes, and with it distance; everything is equally far and near, close by us and yet mysteriously remote. Space loses its measures. There are whispers and sounds, and we do not know where or what they are. Our feelings too are peculiarly ambiguous. There is a strangeness about what is intimate and dear, and a seductive charm about the frightening. There is no longer a distinction between the lifeless and the living, everything is animate and soulless, vigilant and asleep at once. What the day brings on and makes recognizable gradually, emerges out of the dark with no intermediary stages. The encounter suddenly confronts us, as if by a miracle: What is the thing we suddenly see - an enchanted bride, a monster, or merely a log? Everything teases the traveller, puts on a familiar face and the next moment is utterly strange, suddenly terrifies with awful gestures and immediately resumes a familiar and harmless posture.

Danger lurks everywhere. Out of the dark jaws of the night which gape beside the traveller, any moment a robber may emerge without warning, or some eerie terror, or the uneasy ghost of a dead man - who knows what may once have happened at that very spot? Perhaps mischievous apparitions of the fog seek to entice him from the right path into the desert where horror dwells, where wanton witches dance their rounds which no #Quote by Walter F. Otto
Wonder What Happened quotes by Toni Morrison
#59. They held hands and knew that only the coffin would lie in the earth; the bubbly laughter and the press of fingers in the palm would stay aboveground forever. At first, as they stood there, their hands were clenched together. They relaxed slowly until during the walk back home their fingers were laced in as gentle a clasp as that of any two young girlfriends trotting up the road on a summer day wondering what happened to butterflies in the winter. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Wonder What Happened quotes by Anna Banks
#60. So…it wasn't love at first sight then? With Dad? You fell in love later?" I don't know why I feel disappointed. I don't even believe in love at first sight. Except where it applies to my parents being perfect for each other. And anyways, isn't that a kind of child-myth that all kids want to believe?
"Sweetie…It was never love."
Screw disappointment. Now I feel gut-kicked. "What do you mean? But you had to…Then how did I…?"
Mom sighs. "You were…the result of a moment of…weakness on my part." But she takes too long to choose her words. I wonder what she thought of first, instead of "weakness." Pity? Stupidity? She dabs her napkin at some imaginary syrup at the corner of her mouth. "The only weak moment we ever had, which is kind of extraordinary. Not that I regret it at all," she says quickly. "I wouldn't trade you for anything. You know that, right?"
I wonder if "I wouldn't trade you for anything" is also a child-myth. "So I was an accident. Not even the normal kind of accident. Like, a one-night stand, or a oops-I-didn't-take-my-pill accident. I was an oops-I-accidentally-mated-with-my-first-experiment accident." I put my head in my hands. "Lovely."
"That man loved you, Emma, from the moment you were born. He'd be very upset to hear you talking like that right now. Frankly, I am, too. I was not some experiment."
I bite my lip. "I know. It's just…a lot, don't you think?"

Wonder What Happened quotes by J.K. Rowling
#61. What does Mad-Eye say happened?" asked Mr. Weasley, unscrewing the ink bottle, loading up his quill, and preparing to take notes. Mr. Diggory's head rolled its eyes. "Says he heard an intruder in his yard. Says he was creeping toward the house, but was ambushed by his dustbins." "What did the dustbins do?" asked Mr. Weasley, scribbling frantically. "Made one hell of a noise and fired rubbish everywhere, as far as I can tell," said Mr. Diggory. "Apparently one of them was still rocketing around when the please-men turned up - " Mr. Weasley groaned. "And what about the intruder?" "Arthur, you know Mad-Eye," said Mr. Diggory's head, rolling its eyes again. "Someone creeping into his yard in the dead of night? More likely there's a very shell-shocked cat wandering around somewhere, covered in potato peelings. But if the Improper Use of Magic lot get their hands on Mad-Eye, he's had it - think of his record - #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Wonder What Happened quotes by Ronald Reagan
#62. It would seem that not only is religion lacking in the schools - so is common sense. I wonder what a teacher is supposed to say if a kid asks about those four words on a dime - 'In God We Trust.' Or maybe that's why they aren't being taught how to read these days. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Wonder What Happened quotes by Paul W. S. Anderson
#63. What happened with Final Destination was that the movie was in post-production for a long time and I think they changed a lot of the deaths, so a lot of those things were last-minute additions. Everything we shot is in the movie and it's all been designed. We didn't change anything. It's been a year of making those things happen, exactly as we had pictured them. #Quote by Paul W. S. Anderson
Wonder What Happened quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#64. ...when I say "I am filled with rage," the criminal says, "But why?"And when I blow things up and make life generally unlivable for the criminal (is my life not unlivable too?) the criminal is shocked, surprised. But nothing can erase my rage- not an apology, not a sum of money, not the death of the criminal- for this wrong can never be made right, and only the impossible can make me still: can a way be found to make what happened not have happened? #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Wonder What Happened quotes by Mary Lou Williams
#65. I wonder what an agent would do if he had to travel with the band he's booking. #Quote by Mary Lou Williams
Wonder What Happened quotes by Kristin Scott Thomas
#66. I mean, if you're being directed very precisely by somebody who has admiration and who's really smart, it's great. If you're being told what to do by a nincompoop - and luckily that hasn't happened very often - it can be very frustrating. #Quote by Kristin Scott Thomas
