Beautiful products. Very friendly. Timely in execution of memorial. I was clueless going into this process but I was given clear direction and shown different styles and designs. It made the process a lot easier. Maria did an excellent job. Great experience from friendly sympathetic service to excellent technological advanced enabled communication experience.
Very good experience overall. Thank you very much!! It was a pleasure working with Kim and Maria. They were attentive to all of my questions and concerns. Their attention to detail was first class. My family was very pleased with the headstone. Thanks for making this experience pleasant. Customer Service was perfect. Keep doing what you are doing. I stopped by the day you called to see it. The monument is beautiful and very fitting. I am pleased. I want to thank Schlitzberger and Daughters Monument Co. My sisters and I went to her grave site in Anahuac this last weekend and everyone was very pleased with how the headstone looks.
I will definitely be recommending your company to others. Is it the deceased? A passerby? Forever dear, forever kind! All hope despair, that stands not on the Cross All that I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel mother All things are possible to him who believes All things change but God remains All things change, creeds, and philosophies and outward systems but God remains! All things change…but God remains the same All things to the glory of God All things work together for good to them that love God Romans 8: 28 All things work together unto good All things you ask for in prayer, believing, you shall receive All women become like their mothers.
That is their tragedy. No man does. Alone to thee, dear Lord, can we our well-beloved resign Along the cool sequestered vale of life they kept the noiseless tenor of their way Although she sleeps, her memory lives on Although your smile is gone forever and your hand I cannot touch, I still have so many memories of the one I loved so much. So, a toast to the past; a toast to the future… And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love 1 Corinithians And now cometh eternal rest and blessed tranquility And rove where angels love to dwell. Shine until tomorrow, let it be And with the morn those angel faces smile which I have loved long since, and lost awhile Angels guard you forever Angel, you were born to fly!
Artist As a family we are never apart loving memories keep you alive in our hearts As a wife-devoted, as a mother-affectionate, as a friend-our trust and love, in life-she exhibited all the graces of a Christian, in death-her redeemed spirit returned to God who gave it As a wife, she had no equal. As a mother, she had no superior As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord Jos.
As long as I live you will be loved As long as life and memory last I shall remember thee As the bird free of its cage seeks the heights, so the Christian soul in death flies home to God As we trust the sun will rise, so trust we the mystery will be explained As you are now so once was I As you danced in the light with joy, love lifted you.

With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you fade away, although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, your tender hands at rest.

And what I was learning is that it was never going to be the life I had before If I were to begin my life again, I should want it as it was. Let him pray James It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you, the day God took you home It distresses us to return work which is not perfect It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High.

Take me then, O Lord, I pray into thine arm unto my rest Take salutations, do not weep. Within this narrow house of clay. Until the resurrection day Take them, O great Eternity!

Perfect and easy and responsive. Everything was great. Great [experience], Sherree in La Marque was very helpful and polite. Keep up the great work. They take pride in helping their clients in making some of the hardest decisions of their life.
They were patient and kind, which was greatly appreciated. I believe I had the best experience possible. I was helped by Mr. Schlitzbergber; he shared stories of families and monuments that he had created. He is so talented and creative and has lived a very interesting life and I was lucky to get to share a small moment of it. We placed the order and felt confident that you would deliver, and you did. No improvement is needed. They were very helpful and kept in touch on the status of memorial. All went well. Thank you so much, we love it.
We could not be more pleased with the service we received, it was great. Everyone was helpful and professional. I was given the information I needed but not pressured to purchase anything.

My family cannot thank you enough for all your loving care. We are so grateful. It was a pleasure working with your employees. No improvements needed to improve experience.

Thank so much for such professional service! Sherree did a great job, very professional, polite and a sweet person. Thank you so much for everything! Looks great! I love the marker. The stone and the curbing are lovely, and very well done. As much if not more than I expected. I am very pleased with the service that I received, and the willingness to make changes that I requested after placing my initial order, and for going the extra mile to verify the color that I was wanting to match.
I thank you for the beautiful job — the marker turned out exactly as I had hoped for. The only thing that could have been better is if the completion time could have been sooner, but I understand that with the volume of business that you do, that was not possible. But the marker was still installed a little ahead of what I expected. No improvement needed. It was great having one on one customer service. Great job!!
It is so beautiful! Thank you for the beautiful marker you have made for my husband. I have been to see the marker and it is lovely. I saw the stone yesterday. It was so beautiful that it made me cry. From beginning to end — excellent customer service. Lea and Kimberly were wonderful!!!! Thank You Very Much!!! Thank you for all of your help! Salesperson was very courteous and helpful. You are perfect how you are. Thank you Lea and Maria for your help. The footstone looks very nice. I was able to stop by and see it today.
There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope. What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder. We need to be reminded sometimes that a sunrise last but a few minutes. But its beauty can burn in our hearts eternally. This morning the sun made me adore it. It had, behind the dripping pine trees, the oriental brightness, orange and crimson, of a living being, a rose and an apple, in the physical and ideal fusion of a true and daily paradise.
Life is a great sunrise. I do not see why death should not be an even greater one. My sun sets to rise again. Every sunrise is a poem written on the earth with words of light, warmth, and love. Sad soul, take comfort, nor forget That sunrise never failed us yet. We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness. There is always a way and always hope in the next sunrise, and in the next second, and in the next minute. Rest but never quit.
Even the sun has a sinking spell each evening. But it always rises the next morning. At sunrise, every soul is born again. It also gives a chance to make amends. Use it wisely before sunset. The darkness that follows a sunset is never so dark that it can change the inevitability of a sunrise. Get outside. Watch the sunrise. Watch the sunset. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel big or tiny? You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area.
There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure. Beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sound. A dimension of sight. A dimension of mind. You are moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.
You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.
It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone! Shedd "Faint heart never won fair lady. It is inevitable. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Hang your hat over that chandelier-- it hurts my eyes. Call that a nose? Na na-- I be no fool like what you think I be--That there's a blue cucumber!

A kiss, when all is said, what is it?

You only use it when you travel. I knew the record would stand until it was broken.
By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations, describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work. Some are useful. Box "The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful.
If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living. Fishing is extremely poor, especially in August.

Tufte "Power corrupts.
Powerpoint corrupts absolutely. Tufte "Treat a virus with antibiotics and you get better in 7 days. Do nothing and you are better in a week. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. Can't a man alive mistreat me, 'cause I know who I am. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of Habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the slavery of Home, man feels once more happy.
It isn't always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that's okay. The journey changes you; it should change ou. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present. In the pursuit of the Way, everyday something is dropped. You are on Pandora, ladies and gentlemen.
Respect that fact every second of every day. Out there beyond that fence every living thing that crawls, flies, or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes for jujubes. We have an indigenous population of humanoids called the Na'vi. They're fond of arrows dipped in a neurotoxin that will stop your heart in one minute - and they have bones reinforced with naturally occurring carbon fiber.
They are very hard to kill. As head of security, it is my job to keep you alive. I will not succeed. Not with all of you.
If you wish to survive, you need to cultivate a strong, mental aptitude. You got to obey the rules: Pandora rules. Rule number one Quaritch from movie Avatar "This is the mark of a perfect character - to pass through each day as though it were the last, without agitation, without torpor, and without pretense. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that! Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. There goes the shawl again!
All I know is that when I consider the way they go about attaining it, I see them carried away headlong, grim and obsessed, in the general onrush of the human herd, unable to stop themselves or to change their direction. All the while they claim to be just on the point of attaining happiness. When I knew the wind was strong, I attacked myself to make the race as hard as possible. But I'm not talking about a lactate threshold or anything like that; this threshold is harder to define because it's really a combination of physiological, psychological, and environmental factors.
At the same time, every racer who's broken through what I refer to as the "Competitive Threshold" knows what it is, even if they can't really describe it. When your fitness is below a given point relative to your competition you're racing to survive and holding on to a slight hope that if you survive long enough you might be able to launch one all-or-nothing bid for victory.
But when improve beyond your Competitive Threshold, survival is no longer an issue and a whole new world of opportunities opens up. Instead of fighting for wheels so you don't get dropped, you're fighting for wheels based on strategy. Instead of viewing the peloton as a place to find shelter, you start viewing it as a tool you can use to increase your chances of winning. You start acting like a hunter instead of a scavenger. The farther you pedal, the heavier he feels. The harder you push, the tighter he squeezes your chest. The steeper the climb, the deeper he digs his jagged, sharp claws into your muscles.
It doesn't matter if you're sprinting for an Olympic medal, a town sign, a trailhead, or the rest stop with the homemade brownies. If you never confront pain, you're missing the essence of the sport. Without pain, there's no adversity. Without adversity, no challenge. Without challenge, no improvement. No improvement, no sense of accomplishment and no deep-down joy.
Might as well be playing Tiddly-Winks. I'm alive. I'm looking. I'm looking around. I'm feeling good. I'm so happy. I've got so many gold medals and ribbons and stuff, and that doesn't count. What counts is getting out there and doing the best I can do and show people what they can do. It never forgives weakness and extracts an unfair tribute of suffering.
The most important factor you can keep in your own hands is yourself. I always placed the greatest emphasis on that. Jane Kelly, The Anchorage Daily News in July "The wonderful things in life are the things you do, not the things you have" -- Reinhold Messner, alpinest "It's always further than it looks. It's always taller than it looks. It's always harder than it looks. Now I have only good days or great days. They are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. I you give her sperm she will give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she will give you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give you her heart. She multiples and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit! I have children. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything. Several new science papers suggest that getting away is an essential habit of effective thinking. When we escape from the place we spend most of our time, the mind is suddenly made aware of all those errant ideas we'd previously suppressed.
We start thinking about obscure possibilitiebsthat never would have occurred to us if we'd stayed home. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" " Who steals my purse, steals trash; 'tis something, nothing; 'twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands: but he that filches from me my good name robs me of that which not enriches him, and makes me poor indeed.
To die: to sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause: there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life; For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all; And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action. The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons Be all my sins remember'd. He that shall live this day, and see old age, Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours, And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:' Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day. Familiar in his mouth as household words Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester, Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd. This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remember'd; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man That ever lived in the tide of times. Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood! Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,-- Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips, To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue-- A curse shall light upon the limbs of men; Domestic fury and fierce civil strife Shall cumber all the parts of Italy; Blood and destruction shall be so in use And dreadful objects so familiar That mothers shall but smile when they behold Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war; All pity choked with custom of fell deeds: And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge, With Ate by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war; That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With carrion men, groaning for burial.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard. It seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come. Good morrow, Kate; for that's your name, I hear. Katharina: Well have you heard, but something hard of hearing: They call me Katharina that do talk of me. Petruchio: You lie, in faith; for you are call'd plain Kate, And bonny Kate and sometimes Kate the curst; But Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom Kate of Kate Hall, my super-dainty Kate, For dainties are all Kates, and therefore, Kate, Take this of me, Kate of my consolation; Hearing thy mildness praised in every town, Thy virtues spoke of, and thy beauty sounded, Yet not so deeply as to thee belongs, Myself am moved to woo thee for my wife.
Katharina: Moved! Come on, and kiss me, Kate. It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear; Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear! So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows, As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows. The measure done, I'll watch her place of stand, And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand. Did my heart love till now? For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night. It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she: Be not her maid, since she is envious; Her vestal livery is but sick and green And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love! O, that she knew she were! She speaks yet she says nothing: what of that? Her eye discourses; I will answer it. I am too bold, 'tis not to me she speaks: Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, Having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres till they return. What if her eyes were there, they in her head? The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars, As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven Would through the airy region stream so bright That birds would sing and think it were not night.
See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand! O, that I were a glove upon that hand, That I might touch that cheek! That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more: it is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.
Voice: The Village. Number 6: What do you want? Voice: Information. Number 6: Whose side are you on? Voice: Now that would be telling. We want information. Number 6: You won't get it. Voice: By hook or crook we will. Number 6: Who are you? Voice: The new number 2. Number 6: Who is number 1? Voice: You are number 6. Number 6: I am not a number.
I am a free man! Open, locks, Whoever knocks! Second Witch: Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. ALL: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble. Third Witch: Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf, Witches' mummy, maw and gulf Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark, Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark, Liver of blaspheming Jew, Gall of goat, and slips of yew Silver'd in the moon's eclipse, Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips, Finger of birth-strangled babe Ditch-deliver'd by a drab, Make the gruel thick and slab: Add thereto a tiger's chaudron, For the ingredients of our cauldron.
Second Witch: Cool it with a baboon's blood, Then the charm is firm and good. Give thy thoughts no tongue, Nor any unproportioned thought his act. Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar. Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatch'd, unfledged comrade.
Beware Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in, Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee. Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment. Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy; For the apparel oft proclaims the man, And they in France of the best rank and station Are of a most select and generous chief in that.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend, And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. This above all: to thine ownself be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. An host of tongues; but let ill tidings tell Themselves when they be felt. He does not seem to know where the center of the earth is. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
The intelletual life of man consists almost wholly in his substitution of a conceptual order for the persceptual order in which his experience originally comes. If it's in my mouth, it's mine. If I can take it from you, it's mine. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine. If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way. If I'm chewing something, all the pieces are mine. If it looks just like mine, it is mine. If I saw it first, it's mine. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.
Sometimes she wished she were sleeping with the right man instead of with her dog, but she never felt she was sleeping with the wrong dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion" -- anon In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.
Murtogg: No. Mullroy: No. Murtogg: But I have seen a ship with black sails. Is that what you're telling me? Mullroy: Like I said, there's no real ship as can match the Interceptor. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the Pirate's Code to apply, and you're not. And thirdly, the Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner. But there's no ship as can match the Interceptor for speed. Rooney And now to all the good dogs-- the special ones you loved best, those of ours we still miss -- good-bye, until, on some brighter day, in some fairer place, they run out again to greet us.
What we call each other ultimately becomes what we think of each other, and it matters. It was snowing And it was going to snow. The blackbird sat In the cedar limbs. The dog has long been bemused by the singular activites and the curious practices of men, cocking his head inquiringly to one side, intently watching and listening to the strangest goings-on in the world. He has seen men sing together and fight one another in the same evening. He has watched them go to bed when it is time to get up, and get up when it is time to go to bed.
He has observed them destroying the soil in vast areas, and nurturing it in small patches. He has stood by while men built strong and solid houses for rest and quiet and then filled them with lights and bells and machinery. His sensitive nose, which can detect what's cooking in the next township, has caught at one and the same time the bewildering smells of the hospital and the munitions factory. He has seen men raise up great cities to heaven and then blow them to hell.
Show him you remember that he is Mr. Well, you know where he is. Confront the problem! Stowe "Man will occasionally stumble across the truth, but will usually pick himself up and carry on. Then YOU feel successful about it; that's how success is measured. Save lives and you are a nurse. Ride to live. Robert Langdon: Father, I simply believe that religion I asked if you believe in God. Robert Langdon: I'm an academic. My mind tells me I will never understand God. Camerlengo Patrick McKenna: And your heart? Robert Langdon: Tells me I'm not meant to. Faith is a gift that I have yet to receive.
The language also serves as a framework within which we organize our ideas about processes. So twice five miles of fertile ground With walls and towers were girdled round: And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills, Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree; And here were forests ancient as the hills, Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. Dalberg Acton "Human beings The fact of the matter is that the 'real world' is to a large extent unconsciously built up on the language habits of the group. Dijkstra "The question of whether computers can think is just like the question of whether submarines can swim.
Dijkstra "Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. Dijkstra "Computers are dull and boring; humans are clever and imaginative. We humans make computers exciting. Equipped with computing devices, we use our cleverness to tackle problems we would not dare take on before the age of computing and build systems with functionality limited only by our imaginations. Horning "The traditional mathematician recognizes and appreciates mathematical elegance when he sees it. I propose to go one step further, and to consider elegance an essential ingredient of mathematics: if it's clumsy, it's not mathematics".
Dijkstra "For me, the first challenge for Computer Science is to discover how to maintain order in a finite, but very large, discrete universe that is intricately intertwined. And a second, but not less important challenge is how to mould what you have achieved in solving the first problem, into a teachable discipline: it does not suffice to hone your own intellect that will join you in your grave , you must teach others how to hone theirs.
The more you concentrate on those two challenges, the more you will see that they are only two sides of the same coin: teaching yourself is discovering what is teachable". Dijkstra "We must organize the computation in such a way that our limited powers are sufficient to guarantee that the computation will establish the desired effect. Dijkstra "Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not.

A Sense of Humor was provided to console him for what he is. It is the measles of mankind. Malcolm Reynolds: But it ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of flying is? Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I'm about to say. River Tam: I do. But I like to hear you say it. Malcolm Reynolds: Love. You can learn all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens.
Makes her a home. River Tam: Storm's getting worse. Malcolm Reynolds: We'll pass through it soon enough. Everything goes somewhere, and I go everywhere. The noise is what distracts us from the the truth. To many it appears barren, hostile, repellent - a fearsome mostly waterless land of rock and heat, sand dunes and quicksand, cactus, thornbrush, scorpion, rattlesnake, and agaraphobic distances.
To those who see our land in that manner, the best reply is, yes, you are right, it is a dangerous and terrible place. Enter at your own risk. Carry water. Avoid the noonday sun. Try to ignore the vultures. Pray frequently. What do I believe in? I believe in sun. In rock. In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock. I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers, eagles, storm, drums, flutes, banjos, and broom-tailed horses Lost in time and lost in space See androids fighting. Brad and Janet.
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet. We sat on a high esplanade and looked far over the countless chimneys of northern Manchester to the horizon. On the skyline, green and aloof, the Pennines rose like the ramparts of paradise. King Hubbert "There is no better test of a man's integrity than his behavior when he is wrong.
Boorstin "If ignorance is bliss, why aren't there more happy people? It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle Also less likely to live. Eliot "Ultimately, however, conflict lies not in objective reality, but in people's heads. Truth is simple one argument - perhaps a good one, perhaps not - for dealing with the difference.
The difference itself exists because it exists in their thinking. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
Inspirations for Headstone Quotes and Epitaphs
But I heard Rosa Parks. I met Rosa Parks in when I was In , I met Dr. King, and these two individuals inspired me to get into trouble, and I've been getting in good trouble, necessary trouble, ever since. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children.
Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance. I just watch what they do. Until they make that first turn. That's what it is to be a slave. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain.
Emily Dickinson Poems
Time to die. Deckard: I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments, he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life, anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going?
