Quote of the Day
I think what is interesting in life is all the cracks and all the flaws and all the moments that are not perfect.
If you record the sound of bacon in a frying pan and play it back, it sounds like the pops and cracks on an old 33 1/3 recording. Almost exactly like that. You could substitute it for that sound.
Life has evolved to thrive in environments that are extreme only by our limited human standards: in the boiling battery acid of Yellowstone hot springs, in the cracks of permanent ice sheets, in the cooling waters of nuclear reactors, miles beneath the Earth's crust, in pure salt crystals, and inside the rocks of the dry valleys of Antarctica.
Too many children in foster care are falling through cracks. Be a hero, take the time learn about adoption today.
In any story, the villain is the catalyst. The hero's not a person who will bend the rules or show the cracks in his armor. He's one-dimensional intentionally, but the villain is the person who owns up to what he is and stands by it.
It's sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way - cracks you open to feeling.
Because women have been marginalised, they're more likely to behave like immigrants and continue to push themselves forward in order to avoid falling through the cracks, but I don't think a happy ending comes from matriarchy.
I have a great sensitivity to kids. I have a great sensitivity to the people that fall between the cracks.
I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don't quite know how to explain it but it's there. These can't be the only notes in the world, there's got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.
Kids are falling through the cracks and nobody notices it. That to me is what's wrong with the school system.
I think carrying moral baggage is very dangerous for an artist. If you have a duty, it's to be true and not cover up the cracks.
It is through the cracks in our brains that ecstasy creeps in.
Logan Pearsall Smith
I've always been interested in the idea of people who fell through the cracks.
I feel confidence in myself, but at the same time there's these cracks in the facade and those little things underneath that are unstable.
I grew up where, when a door closed, a window didn't open. The only thing I had was cracks. I'd do everything to get through those cracks - scratch, claw, bite, push, bleed. Now the opportunity is here. The door is wide open, and it's as big as a garage.
It cracks me up to see these ads for TV - for Depends or for glue for your dentures. The people in them look 55 with a hint of gray. Where are the people who are falling apart? We don't see that.
I let people see the cracks in my life. We can't be phony. We've got to keep it real.
Charles R. Swindoll
It's sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way - cracks you open to feeling. When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain.
You can tell when someone is putting on a role. If someone really believes in what they're saying, it's quite hard to find cracks.
Somehow, as a writer, you tend to use words to paper over structural cracks.
I see friends who are in different genres of music, and they say they're so burnt playing the same stuff every night. That's why you see a country act wanting to go out and play an old classic rock song. But what cracks me up is that they all want to be Jimmy Buffett. I can't figure that out.
I like characters who have strong facades and then have secrets. They have cracks.
Change, when it comes, cracks everything open.
Happiness, for you we walk on a knife edge. To the eyes you are a flickering light, to the feet, thin ice that cracks; and so may no one touch you who loves you.
I think I fall into a lot of cracks in terms of I'm too something. I'm too this, I'm too that. And my music has never really had a home. I've been this floating alternative. I'm too mainstream for alternative. I'm too alternative for mainstream. And I'm just kind of wandering.
K. D. Lang
The Classic games were Classic because, like classical music or architecture, they strove to give life and weight to ideals of order and proportion, to provide a vision of timelessness. In 'Double Dragon,' we can see the cracks in the brick, the mold growing on the drainage pipes, the unmistakable deterioration of the world we live in.
D. B. Weiss
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
