The Renaissance is a period in European history, covering the span between the 14th and 17th centuries. It is an extension of the Middle Ages and is bridged by the Age of Enlightenment to modern history. It grew in fragments, with the very first traces found seemingly in Italy, coming to cover much of Europe, for some scholars marking the beginning of the modern age.
The only time we as humans can truly be alive is when all of our thoughts are in order and we are on top of everything. Stress is the main reasons certain humans never want to be alive. Be stress-free, be one with the world.
- The Final Two
The radar unit was telling me the last player was in a room down the hall. It was barricaded on the outside with wooden crates to make it look like there was nothing behind them. I carefully moved the crates one by one until the door was accessible. I must've made enough noise to alert the person inside however because I could hear a girl crying quietly within. She probably didn't want to be in this sick, twisted game either.
Kody Keplinger, The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend
He was sweet and charming and smart... but my feelings for Wesley were way beyond that. I'd skipped the crush kiddie pool and jumped right into the deep, shark-infested ocean of emotions. And, if you'll forgive the dramatic metaphor, I was a lousy swimmer.
Ilf and Petrov
- The Twelve Chairs
There were so many hairdressing establishments and funeral homes in the regional center of N. that the inhabitants seemed to be born merely in order to have a shave, get their hair cut, freshen up their heads with toilet water and then die.
- Pride and Prejudice
You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.
Calvin and Hobbes
If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they'd live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.
- The mouse
I saw today, on the platform of a small hot air balloon I noticed on the street, a tiny mouse playing a tiny piano. I realised its music was causing all the joy and sadness in the world.
- On sacrifice
Sacrifice is the sole criterion of worth. Love cries out for blood. In some measure, a nation is something worth dying for because it is something for which people have died.
- On English
I love the twist and agility of English sentences, and their capacity to quickly jump and fall, like flying swallows, between pews of Saxon plainness and Latinate vaults of abstraction.
George R. R. Martin
- The Kingsmoot--Theon Greyjoy
I am Theon Greyjoy. Last living son of Balon Greyjoy. And she is your rightful ruler. Those of you who have sailed under her, and there are many of you here: you know what she is. She is a reaver! She is a warrior! She is iron born! You will find no better ruler. This is our queen.
I like random and loud noises and also the fact that schools almost over for the day and the year, because as you probably know I do not like school. School is boring and none for me.
Who do you like more
- Pac-Man or Q*bert
Put a coin in the slot for Who Do You Like More. Today's is retro and old school. Pac-Man or Q*bert? Leave a comment saying who you like more, and tell me why you picked that one. Happy Picking.
Never quit. If you stumble, get back up, what happened yesterday no longer matters. Today is another day... so set back on track and move closer to your dream and goals. Push harder than yesterday if you want a different Tomorrow, I know you can do it.
- Good/bad people
As human, we are trying so hard to see the best in people even when they have done worst things. We even tend to fix their mess just so for them to realize they are wrong and still we fail. All we should know is being good or bad is a choice you can not force someone to be good or bad, they have to decide from their hearts.
