Quote of the Day
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.
A smart girl leaves before she is left.
The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.
Saint Francis de Sales
Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.
A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long.
e. e. cummings
Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
Moving on, is a simple thing, what it leaves behind is hard.
Logic is the last scientific ingredient of Philosophy; its extraction leaves behind only a confusion of non-scientific, pseudo problems.
Anorexia is a response to cultural images of the female body - waiflike, angular - that both capitulates to the ideal and also mocks it, strips away all the ancillary signs of sexuality, strips away breasts and hips and butt and leaves in their place a garish caricature, a cruel cartoon of flesh and bone.
The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes.
I have two homes, like someone who leaves their hometown and/or parents and then establishes a life elsewhere. They might say that they're going home when they return to see old friends or parents, but then they go home as well when they go to where they live now. Sarajevo is home, Chicago is home.
The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.
I've got a woman's ability to stick to a job and get on with it when everyone else walks off and leaves it.
Travelers repose and dream among my leaves.
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree.
George H. W. Bush
Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves practically nothing unsaid.
I don't think it ever does any harm in any business to feel that there is someone there who cares about it. If you look at any business, fashion being the most obvious, the aura, or the reality of the designer, is part of what creates it. It's true in luxury goods stores and in good food stores. It leaves a palpable sense that someone cares.
What though youth gave love and roses, Age still leaves us friends and wine.
That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.
In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider's web. It shows that the truth sticks inside.
Confession of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and clearer. I feel stronger for confession.
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
C. S. Lewis
