Book Of Brin quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#4. Old and cold. High rates of suicide and prescription drug abuse. Look at the inbred faces at the grocery stores and coffee shops, the exercise-deficient kids, the routinized state workers, the sun-deprived adults and isolated third and fourth generation sad cases who've never experienced a meal outside of Lewis and Clark County. Make no mistake; Helena, Montana is old and cold and the rigid, sick antithesis of living. - Author: Brian D'Ambrosio
Book Of Brin quotes by Brian D'Ambrosio
#5. It's a tough one for me, politics. I grew up in a house where my father is a Christian book salesman and a Tory, and my mum's a social worker. So I can always see the benefits of both arguments. - Author: James Corden
Book Of Brin quotes by James Corden
#6. A few of the managers we spoke with for this book worried that the tour of duty framework might give employees "permission" to leave. But permission is not yours to give or to withhold, and believing you have that power is simply a self-deception that leads to a dishonest relationship with your employees. Employees don't need your permission to switch companies, and if you try to assert that right, they'll simply make their move behind your back. - Author: Reid Hoffman
Book Of Brin quotes by Reid Hoffman
#7. Black children need to see their lives reflected in the books they read. If they don't, they won't feel welcome in the world of literature. The lives of African-Americans are rich and diverse, and the books our children read should reflect that. - Author: Valerie Wilson Wesley
Book Of Brin quotes by Valerie Wilson Wesley
#8. Never judge the length of a book by it's spine! - Author: Stephanie Bates
Book Of Brin quotes by Stephanie Bates
#9. The Page awaits the Inspiration even as Inspiration roams the world of man, seeking a Page upon which to unfurl itself, body and soul, bare yet clothed in immortality if not immediacy.
And the gods said, "Let there be a Page, and many a Page," and there was a Book. And we saw that the Book was good. - Author: Chila Woychik
Book Of Brin quotes by Chila Woychik
#10. Deeply disturbing in a way that only the most honest stories are, YACCUB is a fiercely written, daring journey through America's urban wilderness and into the souls of our forgotten brothers. But Wrath James White hasn't forgotten about them
and after reading this book, neither will you. - Author: Brandon Massey
Book Of Brin quotes by Brandon Massey
#11. when you know that writing your own book of life is so difficult to begin with, the least you can do for someone else, is to try to read the pages of a person rather than skip through the chapters. - Author: Lauren Klarfeld
Book Of Brin quotes by Lauren Klarfeld
#12. Ah, it's my longing for whom I might have been that distracts and torments me! - Author: Fernando Pessoa
Book Of Brin quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#13. The best stories (whether book or movie) involve redemption. If you are someone who believes you have made too many mistakes or your life has been too "bad" for God to want you, think of it this way: God, the greatest story teller, has not yet finished your story, and He can make it a really great story by including a really great redemption. All of us, in truth, need a really great redemption, which means, through Jesus, all of us have a really great story. - Author: Donna E. Lane
Book Of Brin quotes by Donna E. Lane
#14. I want to see mountains again, Gandalf, mountains, and then find somewhere where I can rest. In peace and quiet, without a lot of relatives prying around, and a string of confounded visitors hanging on the bell. I might find somewhere where I can finish my book. I have thought of a nice ending for it: and he lived happily ever after to the end of his days. - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Book Of Brin quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#15. I remember wanting to write a book with someone, the someone being Kate [DiCamillo], and we decided to write about two friends. We had no idea how to begin this project - neither of us had ever collaborated with another writer - and I'm pretty sure that we began by giving our two friends a sock, just to see what they'd do with it. And it went from there. - Author: Kate DiCamillo
Book Of Brin quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#16. When I was released by the Americans I read historian Trevor Roper's book, 'The Last Days of Hitler'. Throughout the book like a red line, runs an eyewitness report by Hanna Reitsch about the final days in the bunker. I never said it. I never wrote it. I never signed it. It was something they invented. Hitler died with total dignity.. - Author: Hanna Reitsch
Book Of Brin quotes by Hanna Reitsch
#17. Thoughtfully I resume my patrolling to and fro between the benches. Now and again I catch a searching glance above the edge of a copy book. I stand still near the stove and look at the young faces. Most of them are good-natured and ordinary, some are sly, others stupid; but in a few there is a flicker of something brighter. For these life will not be so obvious and all things will not go so smoothly. Suddenly - Author: Erich Maria Remarque
Book Of Brin quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#18. The problem is there are people in this country - maybe 10%, I don't know what the number, maybe 20% on a bad day - who want this President to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn't President ... They can't stand the idea that he is President, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn't like somebody in another racial group. So what? It is the sense that the white race must rule. That's what racism is. And they can't stand the idea that a man who is not white is President. - Author: Chris Matthews
Book Of Brin quotes by Chris Matthews
#19. I allude to Back to the Future in the 1985 story to let folks know it was an inspiration and because it literally was the most time-travelly bit of pop culture we had in the mid 80's. I can talk about their tools for considering change. First, the book is metafictive in a traditional sense where I'm showing and telling the reader that the act of writing and reading is a reflexive way to push boundaries of real and literal time travel. Writers and readers are time travellers. The question is what we do with that time we traveled when we leave a book, leave a page. - Author: Kiese Laymon
Book Of Brin quotes by Kiese Laymon
#20. Billie turned back to Geroge. "He's an idiot."
He held up his hands. "You will find no argument here."
"The plight of the younger son," Andrew said with a sigh.
Billie rolled her eyes, tipping he read toward Andrew as she said to George, "Don't encourage him."
"To be ganged up upon," Andrew went on, "never respected..."
George crane his neck, trying to read the title of Billie's book. "What are you reading?"
"And," Andrew continued, "apparently ignored as well. - Author: Julia Quinn
Book Of Brin quotes by Julia Quinn
#21. Almost as remarkable as the hoax itself, and indicative of the enormous cultural power of its perpetrators, is the fact that the revelation of Rigoberta's mendacity has changed almost nothing. The Nobel committee has already refused to take back her prize, many of the thousands of college courses that make her book a required text for American college students will continue to do so, and the editorial writers of the major press institutions have already defended her falsehoods on the same grounds that supporters of Tawana Brawley's parallel hoax made famous: even if she's lying, she's telling the truth. - Author: David Horowitz
Book Of Brin quotes by David Horowitz
#22. There's a lot of people that need these stories, and they can't come to my book, so I'm going to be the bookmobile and I'm going to come to them. - Author: Sandra Cisneros
Book Of Brin quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#23. Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined? - Author: Italo Calvino
Book Of Brin quotes by Italo Calvino
#24. I have always loved the big, brick house in Iowa where my mother grew up. From its windows, you can look out and see beautiful fields and pastures. But when I was young, I was always ignoring what was in front of me and wishing for something more exciting, and from those windows I could imagine the ocean stretching out to the Iowa horizon. -Kristin Kladstrup - Author: Kristin Kladstrup
Book Of Brin quotes by Kristin Kladstrup
#25. A book is the only true land of the free: within its borders, anything is possible - Author: Agona Apell
Book Of Brin quotes by Agona Apell
#26. I have said, and I repeat, at the risk of appearing sacrilegious, that the gas chambers are a detail of the history of the Second World War ... If you take a book of a thousand pages on the Second World War, in which 50 million people died, the concentration camps occupy two pages and the gas chambers ten or 15 lines, and that's what's called a detail. - Author: Jean-Marie Le Pen
Book Of Brin quotes by Jean-Marie Le Pen
#27. If I ever wrote a book on preaching, it would contain three words: Preach the Word. Get rid of all the other stuff that gets you sidetracked; preach the Word. - Author: Charles R. Swindoll
Book Of Brin quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#28. Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is 'The Book of British Birds,' and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology. - Author: Terry Eagleton
Book Of Brin quotes by Terry Eagleton
#29. In reading we must become creators. Once the child has learned to read alone, and can pick up a book without illustrations, he must become a creator, imagining the setting of the story, visualizing the characters, seeing facial expressions, hearing the inflection of voices. The author and the reader "know" each other; they meet on the bridge of words. - Author: Madeleine L'Engle
Book Of Brin quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#30. People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.
[in review of a book] - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Book Of Brin quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#31. I prefer the honest jargon of reality to the outright lies of books. - Author: Jean Rostand
Book Of Brin quotes by Jean Rostand
#32. I've carried on, in that same tradition, with my kids. Aside from just his brilliance, in my estimation, I think he had one of the great imaginations of the 20th century. One of the reasons why the tradition carries on, all these years later, is because, as a parent, those are the books that you go to and pull off the shelf because they never stop delighting you. - Author: Christopher Meledandri
Book Of Brin quotes by Christopher Meledandri
#33. I was a litigation lawyer. That's all very logical. Become a litigation lawyer. Become successful. Have a nice office. But there was some pull inside of me saying, self-publish this book. I followed that intuition and it's been a great choice for me in my life. - Author: Robin S. Sharma
Book Of Brin quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#34. While a book has got to be worthwhile from the point of view of the reader it's got to be worthwhile from the point of view of the writer as well. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Book Of Brin quotes by Terry Pratchett
#35. We have all sorts of conditions of booksellers: one is fanatic on the subject of libraries. He thinks that every public library should be dynamited. Another thinks that moving pictures will destroy the book trade. What rot! Surely everything that arouses people's minds, that makes them alert and questing, increases their appetite for books. - Roger Mifflin - Author: Christopher Morley
Book Of Brin quotes by Christopher Morley
#36. The first time I read an excellent work, it is to me just as if I gained a new friend; and when I read over a book I have perused before, it resembles the meeting of an old one. - Author: James Goldsmith
Book Of Brin quotes by James Goldsmith
#37. Another Kilgore Trout book there in the window was about a man who built a time machine so he could go back and see Jesus. It worked, and he saw Jesus when Jesus was only twelve years old. Jesus was learning the carpentry trade from his father.
Two Roman soldiers came into the shop with a mechanical drawing on papyrus of a device they wanted built by sunrise the next morning. It was a cross to be used in the execution of a rabble-rouser.
Jesus and his father built it. They were glad to have the work. And the rabble-rouser was executed on it. So it goes. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Book Of Brin quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#38. I raise my hand; I take a book from the other side of this desk; I hear the boys playing ball outside my window; I see the clouds blown away beyond the neighboring woods:-in all these I am practicing Zen, I am living Zen. No worldly discussion is necessary, or any explanation. - Author: D.T. Suzuki
Book Of Brin quotes by D.T. Suzuki
#39. For serenity, it is best to use a combination of crystals in your environment and carry crystals with you. - Author: Amy Leigh Mercree
Book Of Brin quotes by Amy Leigh Mercree
#40. Ever since Aristotle described three different kinds of friends - friends of utility, of pleasure, and of virtue - we have known that a set of friends can be a diverse lot. We can have friends we only see at basketball games or book club, friends we see nearly every day at work, and friends who are our confidants. Specialization is fine - we do not expect to like all of our friends in the same way or for the same reasons. At - Author: Bella DePaulo
Book Of Brin quotes by Bella DePaulo
#41. A good book is hard to read, on account of how often it makes you stop and think. - Author: Chris Brady
Book Of Brin quotes by Chris Brady
#42. I had written short stories that were thought worthy of preservation! Was it the same insignificant I that I had always known? Any one walking along the streets might go into any bookshop, and say: 'Please give me Edith Wharton's book'; and the clerk, without bursting into incredulous laughter, would produce it, and be paid for it, and the purchaser would walk home with it and read it, and talk of it, and pass it on to other people to read! - Author: Edith Wharton
Book Of Brin quotes by Edith Wharton
#43. One way an author dies a little each day is when his books go out of print. - Author: William Goldman
Book Of Brin quotes by William Goldman
#44. There are times when the human face and body can express the yearning of the heart so accurately that you can, as they say, read them like a book. Do not abandon me. - Author: Diane Setterfield
Book Of Brin quotes by Diane Setterfield
#45. I became interested in librarians while researching my first book, about obituaries. With the exception of a few showy eccentrics, like the former soldier in Hitler's army who had a sex change and took up professional whistling, the most engaging obit subjects were librarians. An obituary of a librarian could be about anything under the sun, a woman with a phenomenal memory, who recalled the books her aging patrons read as children - and was also, incidentally, the best sailor on her stretch of the Maine coast - or a man obsessed with maps, who helped automate the Library of Congress's map catalog and paved the way for wonders like Google Maps. - Author: Marilyn Johnson
Book Of Brin quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#46. A matter, as the famous book intoned, of finding the shade of the parachute that best complemented you. But really: With no parachute at all you'd hit the pavement so hard it probably wouldn't even hurt, and you'd unleash a whole new color palate-bone, blood, muscle-in the process. - Author: Elisa Albert
Book Of Brin quotes by Elisa Albert
#47. O my darling books…how dear to me are they all! For have I not chosen them one by one, gathered them in with the sweat of my brow? I do love you all! It seems as if, by long and sweet companionship, you had become part of myself. - Author: Antoine Issac, Baron Silvestre De Sacy
Book Of Brin quotes by Antoine Issac, Baron Silvestre De Sacy
#48. I didn't write my book, 'I Don't Care About Your Band,' in order to give women a brand-new set of dating rules they need to feel terrible about not abiding. I wrote my book to make the women who read it feel good about themselves, and a little more entitled to be treated well by the guys they go out with. - Author: Julie Klausner
Book Of Brin quotes by Julie Klausner
#49. American-made genuine book. Each component of this book was selected to provide you with maximum book performance, whatever your reading needs may be. If you are a woman and you bought this book for practical - Author: Tina Fey
