I was elected by the women of Ireland, who instead of rocking the cradle, rocked the system. ~ Mary Robinson
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Robinson
Really, every woman is an example to me, because as women we go through so much pain. We have to live this perfect life when we are messed up inside. We all go through trials and tribulations. ~ Mary J. Blige
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary J. Blige
jealousy is the grave of affection ~ Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
The next morning Sam woke up feeling good. Not sensational or anything foolish but supremely okay. ~ Mary H.K. Choi
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary H.K. Choi
The unicorns, led by costumed grooms, were behaving well about their horns, and the painted rhapsodies all round the cart were more than flattering while the pseudo-king, sceptred in ermine, was positively handsome, as well as resembling the real one quite a lot. The small boy acting as the Dauphin, was obviously his son. It was easy to guess that the angel and the other three children, demure on tasselled cushions, were also related. Reminded by the red heads before her, the Queen Dowager spoke absently to Margaret Erskine. 'I must tell your mother to destroy that marmoset. Mary teases it, and it bites. ~ Dorothy Dunnett
Mary Stauffer quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
The Baby Boom has spawned an even bigger Grandma Boom. For every baby born, two women turn into grandmas. ~ Mary Margaret McBride
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Margaret McBride
It was, perhaps, the amiable character of this man that inclined me more to that branch of natural philosophy which he professed, than an intrinsic love for the science itself. ~ Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
I learned from Francis Ford Coppola to treat the company like your family. ~ Mary Stuart Masterson
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Stuart Masterson
Perhaps this very evening, if it rises in my heart; perhaps never. It's a fear that sometimes I can't abide to think about, and sometimes I don't like to think on anything else. Well, I was fretting about this fear, and Alice comes in for something, and finds me crying. I would not tell her no more than I would you, Mary; so she says, 'Well, dear, you must mind this, when you're going to fret and be low about anything - An anxious mind is never a holy mind.' O Mary, I have so often checked my grumbling sin'* she said that." *Sin ~ Elizabeth Gaskell
Mary Stauffer quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
And miss the final journey? Never! I wish to take notes on dying, my friend. To my knowledge I have never done it before. ~ Mary Victoria
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Victoria
his mind's like Alcatraz. once something's in, it never gets out ~ Mary Elizabeth Summer
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Elizabeth Summer
I have to ask you something." Stumbling over words, I described my encounter with Edward. "I have to meet him at the railroad trestle next week. I'm supposed to do something when I get there, but he didn't say what…" My voice trailed away. The expression on Andrew's face told me he knew exactly what I was talking about.
"Drat," he muttered. "That low-down skunk. I was hoping he'd forgotten."
Andrew hesitated. Without looking at me, he picked up a piece of chalk and started drawing a little train on the floor. Concentrating on his sketch, he said, "Before I got sick, Edward dared me to jump off the trestle."
My heart beat faster. "Is that what I'm supposed to do? Jump off?"
"Now, now, don't get all het up, Drew. It's not as bad as you think." Carefully, Andrew added a curlicue of smoke to his drawing. "You walk out on the trestle and jump in the river. Then you swim to shore. It's a simple as one two three." He tapped the chalk three times for emphasis.
My mouth was so dry I could hardly speak. Lying down between the rails or dynamiting the train might be better than this. "How high is the trestle?"
Instead of answering my question, Andrew said, "It's a test of manhood. Lots of boys have done it."
I wasn't interested in testing my manhood or hearing about other boys. I just wanted to know what was going to happen to me. Me--a boy who was scared to jump off a diving board into eight feet of crystal-clear chlorinated water. ~ Mary Downing Hahn
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Downing Hahn
So when he asked about getting high, I didn't think, I agreed. We smoked some good California green. Took three tries to put me in the place he said I should be. ~ Ellen Hopkins
Mary Stauffer quotes by Ellen Hopkins
The social custom of calling on people when they are unwell has always mystified me. By definition, you're not feeling or looking your best. Why on earth do people assume you might want visitors? ~ Mary Louise Kelly
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Louise Kelly
If everyone used the Internet to share the things they created themselves, what would that look like? I think it makes objects special again. I guess I'm not really advocating for no objects in the world, but rather the idea of creating within our present means. ~ Mary Mattingly
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Mattingly
Sometimes I have a hard time distinguishing between faith and hope. ~ Mary Szybist
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Szybist
Compulsions are intricate survival systems that we create because we don't know how to be there for ourselves. ~ Mary O'Malley
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary O'Malley
He asked me not to kill myself - asked, not told. His wife had done that, he told me, and it was in a sense the ultimate act of selfishness since it left behind untold and endless suffering for those who had witnessed it and been unable to do anything to prevent it. And so I remained alive. ~ Mary Balogh
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Balogh
Every morning when I pick up the newspaper and read about an earthquake in Japan or problems in European financial institutions, the first question I ask our staff is 'What is money-market-fund exposure?' ~ Mary Schapiro
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Schapiro
I persuaded myself that when they should become acquainted with my admiration of their virtues, they would compassionate me, and overlook my personal deformity. Could they turn from their door one, however monstrous, who solicited their compassion and friendship? ~ Mary Shelley
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Shelley
Death by starvation is slow. ~ Mary Hunter Austin
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Hunter Austin
So what is your star sign?' Said Mary Ellen 'Cunnilingus' Katz answered looking profoundly unhappy. ~ Bill Bryson
Mary Stauffer quotes by Bill Bryson
Another morning Diana and I sat together on the window seat in our second-floor living room, looking out at a chilly, gray November day. She cleared her throat gently and asked, "Mrs. Robertson, I wonder if I might ask your advice on something, since you're so much . . . er, older and . . . wiser, I mean." She said that her grandmother had suggested to Diana that she seek help from Buckingham Palace in dealing with the press. Diana did not tell me that her grandmother was Lady Ruth Fermoy, a lady-in-waiting to the Queen Mother. Diana wanted to use our telephone to discuss this further with her grandmother. In the meantime, "Do you think I should ask Charles for help, Mrs. Robertson?" She was quite calm and in control; she simply wanted another opinion.
I thought for a minute, then told her, "I wouldn't ask for help if I could possibly manage without it. If the palace thinks you can't handle the pressure now, they might think you couldn't handle it once you're part of the royal family. If you're serious about this romance, you should try to struggle along on your own." That conversation took place in early November on the day that the photograph of Diana pushing Patrick up the mews in his stroller was taken. It is my favorite photograph of the two of them because it reminds me of the trust she demonstrated that day.
I clearly recall thinking at that point, "This child needs a mother for guidance. ~ Mary Robertson
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Robertson
I just get to go to work with such great actors who are so talented, especially Elizabeth (Perkins). You are so wonderful and kind and good and wonderful and sexy and great, and I just want to make out with all of you. ~ Mary-Louise Parker
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary-Louise Parker
Now, if Mary has an egg cell, then Jesus gets 50 percent of his genetic make up from his mother. And if his mother is a child of Adam, she, too,is fallen so Jesus is not perfect. ~ John Shelby Spong
Mary Stauffer quotes by John Shelby Spong
I do not know,' said the man, 'what the custom of the English may be; but it is the custom of the Irish to hate villains. ~ Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
There are fast chewers and slow chewers, long chewers and short chewers, right-chewing people and left-chewing people. Some of us chew straight up and down, and others chew side-to-side, like cows. Your oral processing habits are a physiological fingerprint. ~ Mary Roach
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Roach
It has a supernatural grandeur which expands the soul and unites it with God. I say an Our Father or a Hail Mary when I feel so spiritually barren that I cannot summon up a single worth while thought. These two prayers fill me with rapture and feed and satisfy my soul. ~ Therese Of Lisieux
Mary Stauffer quotes by Therese Of Lisieux
I wanted someone to follow, I wanted him to be brave. But he wants to be brave for me; and no one can do that. ~ Mary Renault
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Renault
Emotion is the unseen transported on the unseen effecting everything". ~ Mary-Ellen Peters
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary-Ellen Peters
When I was in college, I did a semester on AI theory. There was a thought experiment they gave us. It's called "Mary in the Black and White Room." Mary is a scientist, and her specialist subject is color. She knows everything there is to know about it. The wavelengths. The neurological effects. Every possible property that color can have. But she lives in a black and white room. She was born there and raised there. And she can only observe the outside world on a black and white monitor. And then one day someone opens the door. And Mary walks out. And she sees a blue sky. And at that moment, she learns something that all her studies couldn't tell her. She learns what it feels like to see color. ~ Alex Garland
Mary Stauffer quotes by Alex Garland
I read your diary. I KNOW. ~ Mary Papas
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Papas
You see the suffering of children all the time nowadays. Wars and famines are played out before us in our living rooms, and almost every week there are pictures of children who have been through unimaginable loss and horror. Mostly they look very calm. You see them looking into the camera, directly at the lens, and knowing what they have been through you expect to see terror or grief in their eyes, yet so often there's no visible emotion at all. They look so blank it would be easy to imagine that they weren't feeling much.
And though I do not for a moment equate what I went through with the suffering of those children, I do remember feeling as they look. I remember Matt talking to me
others as well, but mostly Matt
and I remember the enormous effort required even to hear what he said. I was so swamped by unmanageable emotions that I couldn't feel a thing. It was like being at the bottom of the sea. ~ Mary Lawson
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Lawson
Mary was an odd, determined person, and now she had something interesting to be determined about, she was very much absorbed, indeed. ~ Alice Ozma
Mary Stauffer quotes by Alice Ozma
It is harder to kill a whisper than even a shouted calumny. ~ Mary Stewart
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Stewart
Emerge gently from matter into Spirit. ~ Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
[I]t is really the ponderous books which I envy. How easy merely to put down everything you think or imagine. No holding back, no telling oneself that this does not belong, or that. No hewing to the line. No cutting. No fear of letting the interest die. No wastebasket. How wonderful. And how dull! ~ Mary Roberts Rinehart
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Instead of taking the reader by the hand and running him down the hill, I want to lead him into a house of many rooms, and leave him alone in each of them. ~ Mary Oliver
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Oliver
Had she read any good books lately? At all? She could tell him that she was going to take out a subscription at the library tomorrow because she was feeling starved of good reading material and could he recommend anything that she might not already have read? ~ Mary Balogh
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Balogh
I hope that in its richness, as well as in its incompleteness, Gyn/Ecology will continue to be a Labrys enabling women to learn from our mistakes and our successes, and cast our Lives as far as we can go, Now, in the Be-Dazzling Nineties. ~ Mary Daly
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Daly
Nurturing is not complex. It's simply being tuned in to the thing or person before you and offering small gestures toward what it needs at that time. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Anne Radmacher
Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. JOHN 12:3 ~ Anne Graham Lotz
Mary Stauffer quotes by Anne Graham Lotz
Among the people, it was believed, as late as the present century, that spirits were imprisoned in statues. The statue of Neptune by Ammanati in the fountain of the Piazza della Signoria is called 'Il Biancone' or 'The Great White Man' by the poor people, who used to say that he was the mighty river god of the Arno tuned into statue because, like Michelangelo, he spurned the love of women. When the full moon shines on him, so the story goes, he comes to life and walks about the Piazza conversing with the other statues. Michelangelo's 'David', before it became a statue, used to be known as 'The Giant'. It was a great block of marble eighteen feet high that had been spoiled by Agostino di Duccio; personified by popular fancy, it lay for forty years in the workshops of the Cathedral, until Michelangelo made the Giant-Killer, that is, into a patriotic image of a small country defeating its larger foes. Giants, it was related, had built the great Etruscan stone wall of Fiesole, and many stories were told in Florence of beautiful maidens being turned into pure white marble statues. ~ Mary MacCarthy
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary MacCarthy
We have to believe that a creative being lives within ourselves, whether we like it or not, and that we must get out of its way, for it will not give us peace until we do. ~ Mary Caroline Richards
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Caroline Richards
Nothing is real unless people agree that it is. ~ Mary Gergen
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Gergen
There is a point at which curiosity becomes unbearable, when it becomes an obsession, like hunger. ~ Mary Roberts Rinehart
Mary Stauffer quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Never refuse any who ask you for help; if your pockets are empty, give them hope. Your every action must be born of kindness, your every word spoken with love. Live as God would have you live, and others will be inspired to do the same. ~ Immaculee Ilibagiza
Mary Stauffer quotes by Immaculee Ilibagiza
And why had those prayers focused heavenward? Well, kind of made sense, didn't it? Even when there were no more options for the body, the heart's wishes find a way out, ans as with all warmth, love rises. Besides, the will to fly was in the nature of the soul so its home had to be up above. And gifts did come from the sky, like spring rain and summer breezes and fall sun and winter snow. ~ J.R. Ward
Mary Stauffer quotes by J.R. Ward
A disgruntled reflection on my own life as a sort of desperate improvisation in which I was constantly trying to make something coherent from conflicting elements to fit rapidly changing settings. ~ Mary Catherine Bateson
