#1. After a few sips, he picked up his sax and started jamming with the storm.

Most days, Rivers meditated twice, when he awoke and again in the evening before writing or reading. But he still found a special relaxation and renewal in solitary playing. Contemplation through music was different from other reflective experiences, in part, because his visual associations were set free to mutate, morph, and meander; while the other senses were occupied in fierce concentraction on breathing, blowing, fingering, and listening. Within the flow of this activity, his awareness would land in different states of consciousness, different phases of time, and easily moved between revisualization of experience and its creation.

The playing dislodged hidden feelings, primed him for recognizing the habitually denied, sheathed the sword of lnaguage, and loosened the shield and armor of his character. His contemplative playing purged him of worrisome realities, smelted off from his center the dross of eperience, and on those rare and cherished days, left only the refinement of flickering fire. Although he was more aware of his emotions, the music and dance of thought kept them at arm's length, Wordsworth's "emotion recollected in tranquility." . . .

As he played, his mind's eye became the fisher's bobber, guided by a line of sound around the driftwood of thought, the residue of his life, which materialized from nowhere and sank back into nothingness without his weav - Author: Jay Richards

#2. Prose unfolds in time; and time contains both obstacles and revelations. Prose develops, the way characters and situations do. It requires a flow. A poem is an instant, lightning across the sky. Prose is before the storm, the storm, after the storm. - Author: Molly Peacock
Cristobal Storm quotes by Molly Peacock
#3. Years ago, I told myself that one day I would stop feeling this quiet but abiding rage about the things I have been through at the hands of others. I would wake up and there would be no flashbacks. I wouldn't wake up and think about my histories of violence. I wouldn't smell the yeasty aroma of beer and for a second, for several minutes, for hours, forget where I was. And on and on and on. That day never came, or it hasn't come, and I am no longer waiting for it.

A different day has come, though. I flinch less and less when I am touched. I don't always see gentleness as the calm before the storm because, more often than not, I can trust that no storm is coming. I harbor less hatred toward myself. I try to forgive myself for my trespasses. - Author: Roxane Gay
Cristobal Storm quotes by Roxane Gay
#4. The sea had changed. It was dark green now with white-horses, and the rocks shone yellow like phosphorus. Rumbling solemnly the thunder-storm came up from the south. It spread its black sail over the sea; it spread over half the sky and the lightning flashed with an ominous glint.
"It's coming right over the island," thought Snufkin with a thrill of joy and excitement. He imagined he was sailing high up over the clouds, and perhaps shooting out to sea on a hissing flash of lightning. - Author: Tove Jansson
Cristobal Storm quotes by Tove Jansson
#5. Because of my experience in Desert Storm I have permanent Insomnia but don't get me wrong I love sleep I can never get enough of it. - Author: Stanley Victor Paskavich
Cristobal Storm quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#6. The flocks fear the wolf, the crops the storm, and the trees the wind. - Author: Virgil
Cristobal Storm quotes by Virgil
#7. The stench of wolf - especially an Alpha - is very difficult to get out.
"Then you should keep your distance," she shot back. - Author: Franca Storm
Cristobal Storm quotes by Franca Storm
#8. Where can we hide in fair weather, we orphans of the storm? - Author: Evelyn Waugh
Cristobal Storm quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#9. The earthly father is a God-given mnemonic device to remind us of the glory of the heavenly Father. The shepherd is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's care for his own. The snow is meant to remind us of the Lord's purity and holiness. The storm is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's power and wrath. The daily rising sun is a mnemonic device to remind us of God's faithfulness. We're literally surrounded by gracious reminders of the presence, power, authority, and character of God because he designed created things to function mnemonically. He knows how quickly and easily we forget and how vital it is for us to remember, so he embedded reminders everywhere we look in his creation. - Author: Paul David Tripp
Cristobal Storm quotes by Paul David Tripp
#10. While parents should always provide shelter from a storm, they should sometimes allow children to play in the rain. - Author: Wes Fesler
Cristobal Storm quotes by Wes Fesler
#11. It is the stillest words that bring the storm. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Cristobal Storm quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#12. Every powerful storm will help us to make a stronger shelter! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Cristobal Storm quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#13. It has been said that men carry on a kind of coasting trade with religion. In the voyage of life, they profess to be in search of heaven, but take care not to venture so far in their approximations to it, as entirely to lose sight of the earth; and should their frail vessel be in danger of shipwreck, they will gladly throw their darling vices overboard, as other mariners their treasures, only to fish them up again when the storm is over. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Cristobal Storm quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#14. All I want is to make her feel the same storm that's raging inside me. I want her to feel this addiction. Fuck. I want to keep her. - Author: Meghan March
Cristobal Storm quotes by Meghan March
#15. The minister paused in his narrative. At that moment there came a tremendous blast of wind which shook the windows of the manse, and burst open the hall door, and caused the candles to flicker and the fire to go roaring up the chimney. It is not too much to say that, what with the uncanny story, and the howling storm, we all felt that creeping sort of uneasiness which so often seems like the touch of something from another world - a hand stretched across the boundary-line of time and eternity, the coldness and mystery of which make the stoutest heart tremble. ("Sandy The Tinker") - Author: Charlotte Riddell
Cristobal Storm quotes by Charlotte Riddell
#16. Initially the snow had been beautiful, but not so much now. The softness and sparkle still charmed, but the storm occluded the sky, denying us the stars. At the moment, I needed to see a firmament of stars, needed to gaze past the moon and through the constellations, needed to see what can't be seen
infinity. - Author: Dean Koontz
Cristobal Storm quotes by Dean Koontz
#17. And we're in the middle of a 'perfect storm.' These days, government social services are being bad-mouthed and defunded. The non-profit world is looking more and more like the for-profit world. The growing gap between rich and poor makes most of us very anxious about where we stand. - Author: Arlie Russell Hochschild
Cristobal Storm quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#18. Here is a fundamental difference between the man of faith and the man of unbelief. The unbeliever is 'of the world', judges everything by worldly standards, views life from the standpoint of time and sense, and weighs everything in the balances of his own carnal making. But the man of faith brings in God, looks at everything from His standpoint, estimates values by spiritual standards, and views life in the light of eternity. Doing this, he receives whatever comes as from the hand of God. Doing this, his heart is calm in the midst of the storm. Doing this, he rejoices in hope of the glory of God. - Author: Arthur W. Pink
Cristobal Storm quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#19. Skin. Blue sparks writhed across his hands like tiny snakes. Rain washed his face. "This is the best," he shouted, over the roar of the storm. As if it understood him, the bird began to rise higher, every wing-beat a clap of thunder, and it swooped and dove and tumbled through the dark clouds. "In my dream, I was hunting you," said Shadow, his words ripped away by the wind. "In my dream. I had to bring back a feather." Yes. The word was a static crackle in the radio of his mind. They - Author: Neil Gaiman
Cristobal Storm quotes by Neil Gaiman
#20. I wish I could blame the solar storm
that blitzed the earth with electromagnetic rays,
rerouted several commercial airlines,
and caused all the geese to mistakenly fly west,
the secret compass needles in their heads
playing spin the bottle over a rowdy Pacific.
Satellite communications were disrupted,
electric eels in Peru forgot how to sing,
and for a few seconds all the iPhones in the world
flickered to black, during which time
everyone raised their eyes and noticed
moths shivering like tiny chandeliers.
The truth is your glance shortcuts every traffic light
in my heart and now no one's in charge,
I'm accelerating down the expressway
of a tuba's gold dream. With one outburst
from your hair, I sputter like a firefly drowning
in champagne. Just imagining the charged particles
of your lips colliding with mine
and I'm watching the northern lights,
those bodies flaring across midwinter sheets of sky - Author: Katherine Rauk
Cristobal Storm quotes by Katherine Rauk
#21. My entire demeanor is displaying confusion, guilt, shame, pain, pleasure, and a yearning need for him. Lying beneath this huge man, I feel so very helpless and pinned like a butterfly on a plaque. Lucas's - Author: Erotic Storm
Cristobal Storm quotes by Erotic Storm
#22. If only a horrible storm can demolish the castle of the devil, then let the storm be victorious! It is not uncommon that heaven comes after hell! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Cristobal Storm quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#23. But [sorrows] won't get the better of you if you face 'em together with love and trust. You can weather any storm with them two for compass and pilot. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Cristobal Storm quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#24. Too many families and homes remain unnecessarily vulnerable to natural disasters like hurricanes. While mitigation will never eliminate the risk to homeowners, it could reduce loss and, in many cases, save a family's home. For every $1 spent on mitigation, $4 in post-storm cleanup and rebuilding is saved. - Author: Tom Rooney
Cristobal Storm quotes by Tom Rooney
#25. In Europe, war is a disease which has been in the family for generations: no one is surprised when it makes another leap. Even the patient only attends to it with part of his mind. - Author: Storm Jameson
Cristobal Storm quotes by Storm Jameson
#26. I also felt a storm in the air. It prickled on the horizon. I felt it on my skin. The skies were clear, I could not wish for clearer. But I could feel the clouds massing against me, somewhere over the horizon. - Author: Philippa Gregory
Cristobal Storm quotes by Philippa Gregory
#27. Those who walk in radical obedience have made themselves ready for the storm, and they will overcome. - Author: Bob Sorge
Cristobal Storm quotes by Bob Sorge
#28. His eyes found hers in the dark. They were a storm of blue and grey, at times bright and at others almost colorless. He tipped his head wordlessly in the direction of his chambers, and she followed. - Author: Victoria Schwab
Cristobal Storm quotes by Victoria Schwab
#29. The commercial storm leaves its path strewn with ruin. When it is over there is calm, but a dull, heavy calm. - Author: Alfred Marshall
Cristobal Storm quotes by Alfred Marshall
#30. She'd heard people talk about electricity and butterflies; being with Royce was like a lightning storm and hummingbirds. - Author: Cindi Madsen
Cristobal Storm quotes by Cindi Madsen
#31. Winter near the shore is cold. The wind kicks up a salty mist and elephant seals come to shore to trumpet and rut and birth their pups. Retired people put sweaters on their lap dogs and drag them down the street on retractable leashes in a nightly parade of doggy humiliation. Surfers don their wetsuits against the chill of storm waves and white sharks adjust their diets to include shrink-wrapped dude-snacks on fiberglass crackers. - Author: Christopher Moore
Cristobal Storm quotes by Christopher Moore
#32. Emma was doing something nice for Simon? Hell must be enjoying the snow day. - Author: E.J. Stevens
Cristobal Storm quotes by E.J. Stevens

Cristobal Storm quotes by Henryk Sienkiewicz
#34. Too often we take notes on writing, we think about writing but never do it. I want you to walk into the heart of the storm, written words dripping off hair, eyelids, hanging from hands. - Author: Natalie Goldberg
Cristobal Storm quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#35. We've tried as hard as we can into keep the ideas intact in the hail storm that is Hollywood, so, whether he is or not, I'm personally proud of what I've been able to jam down their throats. - Author: Zack Snyder
Cristobal Storm quotes by Zack Snyder
#36. She understood now that knowing when to walk away and when to hunker down and refuse to leave were equally difficult decisions to make in a marriage; that going back didn't have to mean settling; and that the most fulfilling times weren't always before a storm, but sometimes long after the dust had settled, when you were able to lift your chin and see what was left standing so you could wrap yourself around it with all of the wonder it deserved. - Author: Holly Kennedy
Cristobal Storm quotes by Holly Kennedy
#37. Have you ever been so blindsided by a kiss you had to hold on for dear life to avoid toppling over like a sapling in a fierce storm? Yeah, me either. This was a first. It was no ordinary kiss. This felt like a revelation. Like a thunderclap accompanied by the soulful voices of a Greek chorus. - Author: Lane Hayes
Cristobal Storm quotes by Lane Hayes
#38. Life is indeed a storm and while there are times you can sit and watch from the safety of a window pane there are moments you need to grit your teeth and take on the wind and the rain. - Author: Ken Scott
Cristobal Storm quotes by Ken Scott
#39. Paxton
If happiness is the end result, if it's that single want that matters, if we had to through that to get here, I'd do it all over again. If it's the love that matters, then why does it matter how we got there? We were the perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. - Author: Jettie Woodruff
Cristobal Storm quotes by Jettie Woodruff
#40. He was sunk beneath seas of silence; and his name, which would once have caught his notice above the howling of a storm, had become and empty sound. - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Cristobal Storm quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#41. Desert Storm was seen by the military establishment and by some politicians as avenging Vietnam, but it left behind dangerous illusions. The victory was so decisive, and information about it so carefully managed, that the American public was never clearly informed that it was purchased at the price of approximately 100,000 Iraqi lives. - Author: Michael Ignatieff
Cristobal Storm quotes by Michael Ignatieff
#42. Do you believe in ghosts, Maester?" [Jaime] asked Qyburn.
The man's face grew strange. "Once, at the Citadel, I came into an empty room and saw an empty chair. Yet I knew a woman had been there, only a moment before. The cushion was dented where she'd sat, the cloth was still warm, and her scent lingered in the air. If we leave our smells behind us when we leave a room, surely something of our souls must remain when we leave this life? - Author: George R R Martin
Cristobal Storm quotes by George R R Martin
#43. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person that walked in. That's what the storm is all about. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Cristobal Storm quotes by Haruki Murakami
#44. Let a man attain the highest and broadest culture that any American has possessed, then let him die by sea-storm, railroad collision, or other accident, and all America will acquiesce that the best thing has happened to him; that, after the education has gone far, such is the expensiveness of America, that the best use to put a fine person to is to drown him to save his board. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Cristobal Storm quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#45. That was true, Iris would sometimes think, about marriage: it was only a boat, too. A wooden boat, difficult to build, even more difficult to maintain, whose beauty derived at least in part from its unlikelihood. Long ago the pragmatic justifications for both marriage and wooden-boat building had been lost or superseded. Why invest countless hours, years, and dollars in planing and carving, gluing and fastening, caulking and fairing, when a fiberglass boat can be had at a fraction of the cost? Why struggle to maintain love and commitment over decades when there were far easier ways to live, ones that required no effort or attention to prevent corrosion and rot? Why continue to pour your heart into these obsolete arts? Because their beauty, the way they connect you to your history and to the living world, justifies your efforts. A long marriage, like a classic wooden boat, could be a thing of grace, but only if great effort was devoted to its maintenance. At first your notions of your life with another were no more substantial than a pattern laid down in plywood. Then year by year you constructed the frame around the form, and began layering memories, griefs, and small triumphs like strips of veneer planking bent around the hull of everyday routine. You sanded down the rough edges, patched the misunderstandings, faired the petty betrayals. Sometimes you sprung a leak. You fell apart in rough weather or were smashed on devouring rocks. But then, as now, in the teeth of a storm, - Author: Ayelet Waldman
Cristobal Storm quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#46. The future is only grim because people see it that way. It's unpredictable. Life is a summer storm of insecure thoughts. There's an umbrella of precautions to prevent insecurity, but it doesn't always keep the rain out of your face. - Author: Julian Winters
Cristobal Storm quotes by Julian Winters
#47. A tree with strong roots can withstand the most violent storm, but the tree can't grow roots just as the storm appears on the horizon. - Author: Dalai Lama
Cristobal Storm quotes by Dalai Lama
#48. The eternal silence of the great white desert. Cloudy columns of snow drift advancing from the south, pale yellow wraiths, heralding the coming storm, blotting out one by one the sharp-cut lines of the land. - Author: Robert Falcon Scott
Cristobal Storm quotes by Robert Falcon Scott
