#1. She climbs a tree
And scrapes her knee
Her dress has got a tear.
She waltzes on her way to mass
And whistles on the stair.
And underneath her wimple
She has curlers in her hair!
Maria's not an asset to the abbey.

She's always late for chapel,
But her penitence is real.
She's always late for everything!
Except for every meal.
I hate to have to say it
But I very firmly feel
Maria's not an asset to the abbey!

I'd like to say a word on her behalf.
Maria makes me laugh.

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
A flibbertigibbet!
A will o' the wisp!
A clown!

Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her,
Many a thing she ought to understand.
But how do you make her stay
And listen to all you say,
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?
Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

When I'm with her I'm confused
Out of focus and bemused,
And I never know exactly where I am.
Unpredictable as weather,
She's as flighty as a feather,
She's a darling,
She's a demon,
She's a lamb.

She'd out-pester any pest,
Drive a hornet from his nest,
She can throw a whirling dervish out of whirl.
She is gentle,
Author: Rodgers & Hammerstein
Nun Rejects quotes by Rodgers & Hammerstein
#2. I heard that someone asked Mother Teresa what was most important in her work. I thought she'd say the Rosary but she said, 'My nuns and I take very good care of ourselves so we can tend to the lepers and do whatever we need to assist.' If you're strong, or at least not hurting, you can inspire others. - Author: Valerie Harper
Nun Rejects quotes by Valerie Harper
#3. You've a perfect right to call me as impractical as a dormouse, and to feel I'm out of touch with life. But this is the point where we simply can't see eye to eye. We've nothing whatever in common. Don't you see. . . it's not an accident that's drawn me from Blake to Whitehead, it's a certain line of thought which is fundamental to my whole approach. You see, there's something about them both. . . They trusted the universe. You say I don't know what the modern world's like, but that's obviously untrue. Anyone who's spent a week in London knows just what it's like. . . if you mean neurosis and boredom and the rest of it. And I do read a modern novel occasionally, in spite of what you say. I've read Joyce and Sartre and Beckett and the rest, and every atom in me rejects what they say. They strike me as liars and fools. I don't think they're dishonest so much as hopelessly tired and defeated."

Lewis had lit his pipe. He did it as if Reade were speaking to someone else. Now he said, smiling faintly, "I don't think we're discussing modern literature."

Reade had an impulse to call the debater's trick, but he repressed it. Instead he said quietly, "We're discussing modern life, and you brought up the subject. And I'm trying to explain why I don't think that murders and wars prove your point. I'm writing about Whitehead because his fundamental intuition of the universe is the same as my own. I believe like Whitehead that the universe is a single organism that so - Author: Colin Wilson
Nun Rejects quotes by Colin Wilson
#4. Miles had sworn his officer's oath to the Emperor less than two weeks ago, puffed with pride at his achievement. In his secret mind he had imagined himself keeping that oath through blazing battle, enemy torture, what-have-you, even while sharing cynical cracks afterwards with Ivan about archaic dress swords and the sort of people who insisted on wearing them.

But in the dark of subtler temptations, those that hurt without heroism for consolation, he foresaw, the Emperor would no longer be the symbol of Barrayar in his heart.

Peace to you, small lady, he thought to Raina. You've won a twisted poor modern knight, to wear your favor on his sleeve. But it's a twisted poor world we were both born into, that rejects us without mercy and ejects us without consultation. At least I won't just tilt at windmills for you. I'll send in sappers to mine the twirling suckers, and blast them into the sky....

He knew who he served now. And why he could not quit. And why he must not fail. - Author: Lois McMaster Bujold
Nun Rejects quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#5. One would expect Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, who is said to have studied history, to know better and act better, but he too rejects all advice and criticism and runs around obliviously in a coach plastered with pictures of his grandmother abusing her captives, including women and children. You might imagine the bigoted Donald Trump to be riding a coach like that in a mock presidential parade in his dreams, but certainly not a twenty first century Dutch royal. I wonder if he ever considered how their Calvinist pomposity affected the psyche of black and white children. - Author: Dauglas Dauglas
Nun Rejects quotes by Dauglas Dauglas
#6. I always had a problem with original sin; I always had a problem with the exclusivity of the church and a lot of the things that the nuns taught me. - Author: Susan Sarandon
Nun Rejects quotes by Susan Sarandon
#7. If the new government rejects our urgent appeal, we will, next year, in solidarity with our people, intensify our struggle for self-determination, our struggle for national liberation to establish self-government in our homeland. - Author: Velupillai Prabhakaran
Nun Rejects quotes by Velupillai Prabhakaran
#8. There's a certain kind of lonely man who rejects love, because he believes that anyone who offers it wouldn't be a lover worth having. - Author: Gene Wolfe
Nun Rejects quotes by Gene Wolfe
#9. Innocence is innocent not because it rejects but because it accepts; is innocent not because it is impervious and invulnerable to everything, but because it is capable of accepting anything and still remaining innocent; innocent because it foreknows all and therefore doesn't have to fear and be afraid. - Author: William Faulkner
Nun Rejects quotes by William Faulkner
#10. The proudest, the most independent of women, if I can but succeed in communicating my passion to her, will follow me unreasoningly, unquestioningly, doing all I desire. Out of a nun I once made a nihilist who, I heard later, shot a policeman. In all my wanderings my wife never left me for an instant, and, like a weathercock, changed her faith with each of my changing passions.
- On the Way - Author: Anton Chekhov
Nun Rejects quotes by Anton Chekhov
#11. Well, OK then." He narrowed his eyes. "How about you? Do you have any ... romances I should know about?"
"Nope. Not one."
"Well, good. Excellent. There'll be plenty of time for boys when you leave college and become a nun."
She smiled. "I'm glad you have such ambitious dreams for me. - Author: Derek Landy
Nun Rejects quotes by Derek Landy
#12. It seems harsh to many to think that God chooses some and rejects others, and does not consider men's worth, that by his own free will he chooses whom he pleases and moreover rejects others. But what is this scruple except a desire to call God to order and subject him to their judgment? - Author: John Calvin
Nun Rejects quotes by John Calvin
#13. What the fuck is this rubbish supposed to be? Special treatment? Ha, it isn't fucking Halloween, you oddball pack of Addams family rejects. I told you Mini-Morticia was a fucking freak and here's the proof. Looks like the whole family spend a little too much time swimming around in the murky end of the gene pool. - Author: Jim Goforth
Nun Rejects quotes by Jim Goforth
#14. I've been a nun. A Catholic nun. - Author: JWoww
Nun Rejects quotes by JWoww
#15. Erasmus's Bible-saturated mind. His was a mind too broad for fundamentalism, which rejects reason, and too honest for intellectualism, which rejects revelation. - Author: John Mark Reynolds
Nun Rejects quotes by John Mark Reynolds
#16. a woman would have to be a blind lesbian nun to not be affected by him. - Author: Carol Maloney Scott
Nun Rejects quotes by Carol Maloney Scott
#17. He brings to naught, destroys and rejects all that is not His own work; how He draws everything to Himself and absorbs it, that at last He may live and work in us and through us and reign alone as king. Happy the soul who refuses nothing to love, but places everything at His disposal, for only thus may all our works be done more and more in God. - Author: Gerhard Tersteegen
Nun Rejects quotes by Gerhard Tersteegen
#18. As was the case for Nobel's own invention of dynamite, the uses that are made of increased knowledge can serve both beneficial and potentially harmful ends. Increased knowledge clearly implies increased responsibility. We reject the notion advocated in some quarters that man should stop eating from the tree of knowledge, as if that were humanly possible. - Author: Nicolaas Bloembergen
Nun Rejects quotes by Nicolaas Bloembergen
#19. The girls changing in the gym watched her from the other side of the room the first time she went in, and one of the nuns was sitting there as well, just because Stella was there. They took her into a meeting in school and she had to say in advance that she wasn't a lesbian, or they wouldn't have let her even try to use the girls' changing room. They asked her if she was still a Christian. She explained that her family are not religious. They asked her what she knew of damnation. She asked them what they knew of autonomy. They asked her how she knew that word. She asked if they had met her mother. They said they would pray for her. She said it was not necessary. They asked if she might feel different in a few months, or if perhaps she would simply change for gym in the janitor's cupboard. She said she'd felt like this her whole life and no amount of praying was going to change it and she could use the janitor's cupboard to change, but she was a person, not a broom. They said she needed to find Jesus. She asked if it was like finding Wally? Only one nun knew what she meant. That little drawing in those old comic strips her mum had, when you look for the dweeby guy in the stripy hat. - Author: Jenni Fagan
Nun Rejects quotes by Jenni Fagan
#20. Alive," Kimi interrupted. "I get you out of typhoon alive and you just yell and say bad things. I quit. You get new navigator. Roberto say you mean, nasty, Chevy-driving, milk-drinking, American dog f*cker."
I don't drink milk," Tuck said. Ha! Won that round. - Author: Christopher Moore
Nun Rejects quotes by Christopher Moore
#21. THE GAMBLER,THE NUN & THE RADIO

If I live long enough the luck will change. - Author: Ernest Hemingway,
Nun Rejects quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#22. I believe another one of the Song girls has a birthday coming up." He sings, "You are sixteen, going on seventeen…" I feel a strong surge of love for him, my dad who I am so lucky to have.
"What song are you singing?" Kitty interrupts.
I take Kitty's hands and spin her around the kitchen with me. "I am sixteen, going on seventeen; I know that I'm naïve. Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet; willingly I believe."
Daddy throws his dish towel over his shoulder and marches in place. In a deep voice he baritones, "You need someone older and wiser telling you what to do…"
"This song is sexist," Kitty says as I dip her.
"Indeed it is," Daddy agrees, swatting her with the towel. "And the boy in question was not, in fact, older and wiser. He was a Nazi in training."
Kitty skitters away from both of us. "What are you guys even talking about?"
"It's from The Sound of Music," I say.
"You mean that movie about the nun? Never seen it."
"How have you seen The Sopranos but not The Sound of Music?"
Alarmed, Daddy says, "Kitty's been watching The Sopranos?"
"Just the commercials," Kitty quickly says.
I go on singing to myself, spinning in a circle like Liesl at the gazebo. "I am sixteen going on seventeen, innocent as a rose…Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet, and willingly I believe…"
"Why would you just willingly believe some random fellows you don't even know?"
"It's the song, Kitty, not me! God!" I stop spinning. "Lies - Author: Jenny Han
Nun Rejects quotes by Jenny Han
#23. I know that when a door closes, it can feel like all doors are closing. A rejection letter can feel like everyone will reject us. But a closed door leads to clarity. It's really an arrow. Because we cannot go through that door, we will go somewhere else. That somewhere else is your true life. - Author: Tama J. Kieves
Nun Rejects quotes by Tama J. Kieves
#24. The terrorists do not speak for over a billion Muslims who reject their hateful ideology. - Author: Barack Obama
Nun Rejects quotes by Barack Obama
#25. In this age of the rule of brute force, it is almost impossible for anyone to believe that any one else could possibly reject the law of the final supremacy of brute force. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Nun Rejects quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#26. Anarchism is no patent solution for all human problems, no Utopia of a perfect social order, as it has often been called, since on principle it rejects all absolute schemes and concepts. It does not believe in any absolute truth, or in definite final goals for human development, but in an unlimited perfectibility of social arrangements and human conditions which are always straining after higher forms of expression, and to which for this reason one can assign no definite terminus nor set any fixed goal. - Author: Rudolf Rocker
Nun Rejects quotes by Rudolf Rocker
#27. THE GAMBLER,THE NUN,& THE RADIO

It is necessary to be very strong against something - Author: Ernest Hemingway,
Nun Rejects quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#28. He who rejects the Bible has nothing to live by. Neither does he have anything to die by. - Author: Greg Laurie
Nun Rejects quotes by Greg Laurie
#29. There's nothing you could really avoid about giving yourself to somebody who ultimately rejects you. That's just life. - Author: Madeline Zima
Nun Rejects quotes by Madeline Zima
#30. Well, that episode was the last straw, as my mom explains it, and the Nun Boss basically fired my mom, but even though she was a failed nun and never got to marry God, she went home feeling as if a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders. - Author: Judy Greer
Nun Rejects quotes by Judy Greer
#31. My patriotism is not an exclusive thing. It is all embracing. The conception of my patriotism is nothing if it is not always, in every case, without exception, consistent with the broadest good of humanity at large. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Nun Rejects quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#32. This doctor had no point whatsoever. Medicine was just to make money and never for love of his profession or of the sick. He was careless and thought poverty was ugly. He worked for the poor while hating having to deal with them. For him they were the rejects of a very high society to which he too didn't belong. He knew he was out-of-date with medicine and clinical novelties but it was good enough for poor people. His dream was to have money to do exactly what he wanted: nothing. - Author: Clarice Lispector
Nun Rejects quotes by Clarice Lispector
#33. In the contemporary world there are two classes of bad plans-the plans invented and put into practice by men who do not accept our ideal postulates, and the plans invented and put into practice by the men who accept them, but imagine that the ends proposed by the prophets can be achieved by wicked or unsuitable means. Hell is paved with good intentions, and it is probable that plans made by well-meaning people of the second class may have results no less disastrous than plans made by evil-intentioned people of the first class. Which only shows, yet once more, how right the Buddha was in classing unawareness and stupidity among the deadly sins. Let us consider a few examples of bad plans belonging to these two classes. In the first class we must place all Fascist and all specifically militaristic plans. Fascism, in the words of Mussolini, believes that "war alone brings up to its highest tension all human energy and puts the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to meet it." Again, "a doctrine which is founded upon the harmful postulate of peace is hostile to Fascism." The Fascist, then, is one who believes that the bombardment of open towns with fire, poison and explosives (in other words, modern war) is intrinsically good. He is one who rejects the teaching of the prophets and believes that the best society is a national society living in a state of chronic hostility towards other national societies and preoccupied with ideas of rapine and slaughter. He is - Author: Aldous Huxley
Nun Rejects quotes by Aldous Huxley
#34. When we do not reject our suffering, or add anything to it, pain is simply pain. It is what we add to our pain that turns it into suffering. - Author: Brenda Shoshanna
Nun Rejects quotes by Brenda Shoshanna
#35. I really dislike it when women reject feminism; that's ridiculous. I am a product of feminism. Without feminism I would not be making films. - Author: Mary Harron
Nun Rejects quotes by Mary Harron
#36. We call bad one who rejects the fruit he is given for the fruit he is expecting or the fruit he was given last time. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Nun Rejects quotes by C.S. Lewis
#37. We don't have to take rejection as a reflection of our self-worth. If somebody who is important (or even someone unimportant) to you rejects you or your choices, you are still real, and you are still worth every bit as much as you would be if you had not been rejected. Feel any feelings that go with rejection; talk about your thoughts; but don't forfeit your self-esteem to another's disapproval or rejection of who you are or what you have done. Even if the most important person in your world rejects you, you are still real, and you are still okay. If you have done something inappropriate or you need to solve a problem or change a behavior, then take appropriate steps to take care of yourself. But don't reject yourself, and don't give so much power to other people's rejection of you. It isn't necessary - Author: Melody Beattie
Nun Rejects quotes by Melody Beattie
#38. Yet if I told you you are born of God-that you are pure Gods and Goddesses at birth-pure love-you would reject me. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Nun Rejects quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#39. Jesus," I prayed silently, "please fix it so that my turn to read won't come around."
And then the nun called my name, but before I stood I thought, "I'll bet you think this is funny, huh, Jesus?"
I stood and stared at the sentence assigned to me and believed that, through some miracle, I would suddenly be able to read it and not be humiliated. I stood there and stared at it until the children started giggling and snickering and Sister told me to sit down. - Author: John William Tuohy
Nun Rejects quotes by John William Tuohy
#40. I had me one sharp knife, a throwback to my glory days of the swans, and it's sharp as a nun on her second sherry. - Author: Ken Bruen
Nun Rejects quotes by Ken Bruen
#41. We have to be able to reject disproportionate and unjustified responses in the cyber domain just as we do in the physical domain. - Author: Edward Snowden
Nun Rejects quotes by Edward Snowden
#42. This life is a gift, and to reject that gift or abuse that gift is not human and not worthy of us. - Author: Michael Moore
Nun Rejects quotes by Michael Moore
