- Psalm 46:1
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Isaiah 49:13 Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on his afflicted. Deuteronomy 31:8 It is the LORD who goes before you.
I don't know why but I always feel very crappy when I wake up in the morning. It's not like there is something depressing or weird happening in my life, but I just feel so tired and sick of everything. This of course gets better throughout the day and I'm back to normal after a few hours, but I still think it's weird.
Well, the more you think negatively about a situation, the more chance there is of it being worse. Stand up high, think positively, and things will get better. Remember, everything happens for a reason and things will get better.

- The Vampire Diaries
I would write, Dear Diary, Today I convinced myself it's ok to give up. Stick with the status quo, now just isn't the time. But my reasons aren't reasons, they're excuses and the truth is, I'm scared Stefan. I'm scared that if I let myself be happy for one minute, that the my world's going to come crashing down and I don't know if I'll be able to survive that.
- Little Bee (2010)
I ask you right here to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must see all scars as beauty... because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived. Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means, this story teller is alive.
A monster is not such a terrible thing to be. From the Latin root monstrum, a divine messenger of catastrophe, then adapted by the Old French to mean an animal of myriad origins: centaur, griffin, satyr. To be a monster is to be a hybrid signal, a lighthouse: both shelter and warning at once.
- The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry
Then I met Al Dunlop, CEO of Sunbeam and a notorious down-sizer. He had this reputation that he was a man who seemed to enjoy firing people, not to mention the stories from his first marriage... Then you realize that because of this dysfunctional capitalistic society we live in, those things were positives. He was hailed and given high-powered jobs, and the more ruthlessly his administration behaved, the more his share price shot up.
- Tribute to Audrey Hepburn
There is no doubt that the princess did become a queen - not only on the screen. One of the most loved, one of the most skillful, one of the most intelligent, one of the most sensitive, charming actresses - and friends, in my life - but also in the later stages of her life, the UNICEF ambassador to the children of the world. The generosity, sensitivity, the nobility of her service to the children of the world and the mothers of the world will never be forgotten.
- The Princess Bride
I've been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn't listen. Every time you said 'Farm Boy do this' you thought I was answering 'As you wish' but that's only because you were hearing wrong. 'I love you' was what it was, but you never heard.

- The Street (1946)
Her voice had a thin thread of sadness running through it that made the song important, that made it tell a story that wasn't in the words - a story of despair, of loneliness, of frustration. It was a story that all of them knew by heart, and had always known because they had learned it soon after they were born and would go on adding to it until the day they died.
Paul Thomas Anderson
- Magnolia - OfficerJim Kurring
A lot of people think this is just a job that you go to. Take a lunch hour... job's over. But it's a 24-hour deal. And what most people don't see, is just how hard it is to do the right thing. People think if I make a judgment call, that it's a judgment on them, but that is not what I do. And that's not what should be done. I have to take everything and play it as it lays. Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes people need to go to jail.
- The Human Seasons
On mists in idleness-to let fair things, Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook. He has his Winter too of pale misfeature, Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
- I see this spark in you
Sometimes people drift apart Miles, and I don't want that to happen to us, okay? Look, I know I don't always do what you need me to do, or say what you need me to say, but I'm... I see this spark in you, it's amazing! It's why I push you, but it's yours. Whatever you choose to do with it, you'll be great.
- I Can
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, goes the little red caboose. This is how I feel trying to reach my goal of 70 words per minute. I know I can, I know I will. Just tell me I can't and watch me go!!!
- Art and Science
Where the world ceases to be the scene of our personal hopes and wishes, where we face it as free beings, admiring, asking and observing, there we enter the realm of art and science.
- Moby Dick
It was a terrific, most pitiable, and maddening sight. The whale was now going head out, and sending his spout before him in a continual tormented jet; while his one poor fin beat his side in an agony of fright. Now to this hand, now to that, he yawed in his faltering flight, and still at every billow that he broke, he spasmodically sank in the sea, or sideways rolled towards the sky his one beating fin.
D. H. Lawrence
- Fantasia of the Unconscious
There should be no effort made to teach children to think, to have ideas. Only to lift them and urge them into dynamic activity. Never have ideas about children - and never have ideas for them.
D. H. Lawrence
- Fantasia of the Unconscious
I warn the generality of readers, that this present book will seem to them only a rather more revolting mass of wordy nonsense than the last. I would warn the generality of critics to throw it in the waste paper basket without much ado.

What Is Active and Passive Vocabulary? Your passive vocabulary includes the words you can recognize and understand, but can't come up with on your own when writing and speaking. For its part, active vocabulary includes all words that you can think of and use right away when you're in the process of communicating. When learning a language, both your active and passive vocabularies change all the time. You use words, forget words, try out new words and review previously learned words.
