I miss your face. That big bright smile. You always had it, in any weather. It's hard for me to find one these days. These cold November days. Except when I think of you.Kellie Elmore Hard Days Sayings By Kellie Elmore: I miss your face. That big bright smile. You always had it, in any weather.
Are you angry? Punch a pillow. Was it satisfying? Not hardly. These days people are too angry for punching. What you might try is stabbing. Take an old pillow and lay it on the front lawn. Stab it with a big pointy knife. Again and again and again. Stab hard enough for the point of the knife to go into the ground. Stab until the pillow is gone and you are just stabbing the earth again and again, as if you want to kill it for continuing to spin, as if you are getting revenge for having to live on this planet day after day, alone.Miranda July Hard Days Sayings By Miranda July: Are you angry? Punch a pillow. Was it satisfying? Not hardly. These days people are
It's hard to have a relationship in this world. Other people are not the same from day to day. I might wake up next to a woman three days in a row, or three hundred, but I never know if she'll be there the next morning, or the next hour, or if the world will change completely while I'm not looking. She might even change into another person altogether. I might recognize something in her eyes, or she might not be a woman at all. She might turn into a man. Or a mailbox. Or a region of empty space. Or a feeling. Or a song. I might only recognize her as one recognizes someone in a dream, as in the way something is actually someone, and that someone is actually someone else.Charles Yu Hard Days Sayings By Charles Yu: It's hard to have a relationship in this world. Other people are not the same
One always has to remember these days where the garbage pail is, because it's so easy to make sounds, and to put sounds together into something that appears to be music, but it's just as hard as it always was to make good music.Robert Moog Hard Days Sayings By Robert Moog: One always has to remember these days where the garbage pail is, because it's so
Dig deep to finish what you start. Because no matter how hard it feels to push through adversity at the time, once your done, you'll own the experience for the rest of your life.Aaron Lauritsen Hard Days Sayings By Aaron Lauritsen: Dig deep to finish what you start. Because no matter how hard it feels to
Days and months of holding back. Being diplomatic. Trying to figure out which way was up, and how to right a series of mistakes that weren't meant to hurt anyone. At work and in my personal life. It was all a mess, and every time I tried to make things right, I made them worse. So maybe the answer was to stop trying so hard.Allyson Lindt Hard Days Sayings By Allyson Lindt: Days and months of holding back. Being diplomatic. Trying to figure out which way was
If you really like a movie these days, you don't watch it once, especially if you're a kid, because you have a different relationship with media. You expect that to be on your hard drive, and it will look just as good, any time you watch it. It's not like VHS, where you watched it a certain amount of times and it started fading away.Joseph M. Kahn Hard Days Sayings By Joseph M. Kahn: If you really like a movie these days, you don't watch it once, especially if
Decide" comes from the Latin word decidere, meaning "to cut off," which explains why decisions are so hard these days. We can't stand the thought of cutting off any of our options. If we choose A, we feel the sting of not having B and C and D. As a result, every choice feels worse than no choice at all.Kevin DeYoung Hard Days Sayings By Kevin DeYoung: Decide" comes from the Latin word decidere, meaning "to cut off," which explains why decisions
These days, the scientific community accepts me. But getting to that point was tremendously hard, and I think it required a big perception shift. When people have dedicated their lives to something - and spent eight years in college - they just expect that a kid wouldn't be up to doing it.Taylor Wilson Hard Days Sayings By Taylor Wilson: These days, the scientific community accepts me. But getting to that point was tremendously hard,
Although it's hard some days to wake up an hour earlier to do the gym workout as opposed to other skaters who just show up to the rink, I know that if I don't do it, my day will be much worse. I might as well not even skate, actually.Patrick Chan Hard Days Sayings By Patrick Chan: Although it's hard some days to wake up an hour earlier to do the gym
I had been working my first record really hard and toured the heck out of it. I didn't have anything to write about so touring with The Decemberists was what I needed. I could work and take in the world again. You're just the side man and don't need all the info. You're also less busy than when your name is on the ticket, so I had days free to read, watch movies, and just look up.Sara Watkins Hard Days Sayings By Sara Watkins: I had been working my first record really hard and toured the heck out of
Sorry!' Dave's friend yelled when he saw me. 'That was my-' But i wasn't listening as,instead,i took every bit of the anger and stress of the last few minutes and days put it behind the ball, throwing it overhead at the basket as hard as i could. It went flying, hitting the backboard and banging through the netless hoop at full speed before shooting back out and nailing Dave Wade squarely on the forehead. And just like that, he was down.Sarah Dessen Hard Days Sayings By Sarah Dessen: Sorry!' Dave's friend yelled when he saw me. 'That was my-' But i wasn't listening
Finally, two days ago, I succeeded - not on account of my hard efforts, but by the grace of the Lord. Like a sudden flash of lightning, the riddle was solved. I am unable to say what was the conducting thread that connected what I previously knew with what made my success possible.Carl Friedrich Gauss Hard Days Sayings By Carl Friedrich Gauss: Finally, two days ago, I succeeded - not on account of my hard efforts, but
Everything went well, we had a good first period. We wanted to win, and we did. We have a big game in two days, and it will be fun. We worked hard, and it is our ultimate goal. We are ready. There is always a big rivalry between Canada and the United States; it's always fun, and we are really motivated.Marie-Philip Poulin Hard Days Sayings By Marie-Philip Poulin: Everything went well, we had a good first period. We wanted to win, and we

Dachau Liberator, medical whistle-blower, award winning writer, college professor and world renowned garlic farmer, Chester Aaron, talks about the hard choices he's had to make, why he made them, and how it's changed his life.
Mr. Aaron was recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, and received the Huntington Hartford Foundation fellowship which was chaired by Aldous Huxley and Tomas Mann. He also inspired Ralph Nader to expose the over-radiation of blacks in American hospitals.
Now Mr. Aaron is a world-renowned garlic farmer who spends his days writing about the liberation of Dachau. He is 86 years old and he has a thousand stories to tell. Although he has published over 17 books, he is still writing more and looks forward to publishing again soon.

Rwandans have a funny relationship with God, which they convey through a story that anyone can tell you: "God worked very hard for six days creating the heavens and the earth. But on the seventh day, he needed a break, so he picked Rwanda as the place to take a much needed sleep. God sleeps in Rwanda, then keeps busy at work everywhere else."
This story has two meanings: The negative take is that God is not in Rwanda to protect you or answer your prayers, that He comes here only to shut His eyes. The other interpretation of "God sleeps in Rwanda" is that the country is a mile up, cooler and more beautiful than any other place, and so, naturally, this would be where God comes when He is not punching the clock. His favorite place. It was the second interpretation that we needed to believe.
Josh Ruxin Hard Days Sayings By Josh Ruxin: Rwandans have a funny relationship with God, which they convey through a story that anyone
(L)ife is like walking between two tall buildings on a tightrope. For some, the rope is wide enough and the walk is easy. For others, it's narrow and hard and maybe there's a strong wind blowing through their daysWalter Dean Myers Hard Days Sayings By Walter Dean Myers: (L)ife is like walking between two tall buildings on a tightrope. For some, the rope
It would've been easier to die. It's not that I want to be dead now. I don't. I have a lot in my life that I get satisfaction from, that I love. But some days, especially in the beginning, it was so hard. And I couldn't help but think that it would've been so much simpler to go with the rest of them. But you - you asked me to stay. You begged me to stay. You stood over me and you made a promise to me, as sacred as any vow.Gayle Forman Hard Days Sayings By Gayle Forman: It would've been easier to die. It's not that I want to be dead now.
The days began to fly now, and yet each one of them was stretched by renewed expectations and swollen with silent, private experiences. Yes, time is a puzzling thing, there is something about it that is hard to explain.Thomas Mann Hard Days Sayings By Thomas Mann: The days began to fly now, and yet each one of them was stretched by
It is hard to know when we have done enough for the Atonement to change our natures and so qualify us for eternal life. And we don't know how many days we will have to give the service necessary for that mighty change to come. But we know that we will have days enough if only we don't waste them.Henry B. Eyring Hard Days Sayings By Henry B. Eyring: It is hard to know when we have done enough for the Atonement to change
Turannius was an old man who, after he turned ninety, was released from his official duties by an act of Caesar. He had the idea to be laid out on his bed, surrounded by family, and to receive visitors as if he was dead. The entire household mourned the passing of its master and the sorrow was only lifted when the crazy loon returned to his normal routine of idle busy-ness. Hard to believe that a man could become so bored as to get a thrill out of being dead for a few days.Seneca. Hard Days Sayings By Seneca.: Turannius was an old man who, after he turned ninety, was released from his official
I don't know that you ever get over this kind of loss. The fact that Chris is gone is a sharp hurt I feel every single day. It's really hard. Some days are better than others, but it's going to be hard every day for the rest of my life.Jon Krakauer Hard Days Sayings By Jon Krakauer: I don't know that you ever get over this kind of loss. The fact that
It's a struggle. It's really, really hard. I'm already nervous for my next one. You have to put more and more movie stars in movies these days. And of course, I would like to have more than $3million to make it. But, again, if that's what I was offered I wouldn't turn it down. I guess studios know that. But I'm one of the lucky ones, I guess.Nicole Holofcener Hard Days Sayings By Nicole Holofcener: It's a struggle. It's really, really hard. I'm already nervous for my next one. You
I had just finished reading The Day of the Locust when this piece was brought to my attention, and I was like, "How do you create art in the system, the way it is?" Looking around the studio film landscape, there are all of these great superhero movies, which is fantastic, especially for my kids, but it's hard to find real art house films in the studio system, these days.Matt Bomer Hard Days Sayings By Matt Bomer: I had just finished reading The Day of the Locust when this piece was brought
If she had to choose which aspect of the suite she despised most, it would have been a hard call between the lock and the garden, though these days she nursed a particular grudge against the curtains.Marie Rutkoski Hard Days Sayings By Marie Rutkoski: If she had to choose which aspect of the suite she despised most, it would
The sun would still rise, the seasons would still come, life would continue. I was thankful to have been a part of it; I would take the memories and savor them for the life ahead. I had been given the components that would comprise the fate of my destiny; they had aged into my soul so that part of the past would always remain with me. They would be there for me to draw strength from on days in my future when death would seem a triumph and life too hard to live any more.Sara Niles Hard Days Sayings By Sara Niles: The sun would still rise, the seasons would still come, life would continue. I was
Sometimes it's hard to see the rainbow when there's been endless days of rain.Christina Greer Hard Days Sayings By Christina Greer: Sometimes it's hard to see the rainbow when there's been endless days of rain.
But you can always justify killing animals on the grounds that you want to eat them, or wear them, or that they smell bad, look funny, bother you, threaten you, and have the bad luck of being in your way. What about killing humans? Well aside from a few die-hard individualists on the fringe, the general consensus among people these days seems to be that eating and wearing other people is just not on. Wearing a suit which costs as much as a farmer will make in his lifetime is acceptable, but actually putting his eyeballs on a string and letting them dangle above tastefully exposed cleavage is bad form.Mohsin Hamid Hard Days Sayings By Mohsin Hamid: But you can always justify killing animals on the grounds that you want to eat
The boy was the sun in Coriane's sky. On hard days, he split the darkness. On good days, he lit the world. When Tibe went away to the front, for weeks at a time now that the war ran hot again, Cal kept her safe. Only a few months old and better than any shield in the kingdom.Victoria Aveyard Hard Days Sayings By Victoria Aveyard: The boy was the sun in Coriane's sky. On hard days, he split the darkness.
Technology is at the forefront of everything these days - communication, work. It's amazing and scary at the same time how robots have evolved, but I find it hard to believe that robots will completely rule the world. Not in my lifetime anyway.Graham McTavish Hard Days Sayings By Graham McTavish: Technology is at the forefront of everything these days - communication, work. It's amazing and
The ways of living have been rendered vastly easier by a multitude of inventions, by the increasing wealth of the country, by better and more intelligent service; and yet life is by no means easier, but indeed hard. The demands on time, whether real or imagined, have increased in a greater ratio than the supply of facilities for answering them, and as the earth provokingly continues to revolve on its axis just as rapidly as of old, the days are never long enough for all the duties which they bring.Anna Brackett Hard Days Sayings By Anna Brackett: The ways of living have been rendered vastly easier by a multitude of inventions, by
And that was the way it was in the old days before the country grew up and men put their guns away. Someday, and I hope it never comes, there may be a time when the Western hills are empty again and the land will go back to wilderness and the old, hard ways. Enemies may come into our country and times will have changed, but then the boys will come down from the old high hills and belt on their guns again. They can do it if they have to. The guns are hung up, the cows roam fat and lazy, but the old spirit is still there, just as it was when the longhorns came up the trail from Texas, and the boys washed the creeks for gold.Louis L'Amour Hard Days Sayings By Louis L'Amour: And that was the way it was in the old days before the country grew
One would have thought that in the days of peace the progress of women to an ever larger share in the life and work and guidance of the community would have grown, and that, under the violences of war, it would be cast back. The reverse is true. War is the teacher, a hard, stern, efficient teacher. War has taught us to make these vast strides forward towards a far more complete equalisation of the parts to be played by men and women in society.William Manchester Hard Days Sayings By William Manchester: One would have thought that in the days of peace the progress of women to
The strange days of summer. There is no here, no there, the days are incredibly still, the light is brightly muted--it's hard to know if that's the passing of the season or poor air quality.A.M. Homes Hard Days Sayings By A.M. Homes: The strange days of summer. There is no here, no there, the days are incredibly
Writing fiction is not a profession that leaves one well-disposed toward reading fiction. One starts out loving books and stories, and then one becomes jaded and increasingly hard to please. I read less and less fiction these days, finding the buzz and the joy I used to get from fiction in ever stranger works of non-fiction, or poetry.Neil Gaiman Hard Days Sayings By Neil Gaiman: Writing fiction is not a profession that leaves one well-disposed toward reading fiction. One starts
In a startup, in the early days, it can be hard to explain what you do.Trip Adler Hard Days Sayings By Trip Adler: In a startup, in the early days, it can be hard to explain what you
The New Testament is an invaluable book, though I confess to having been slightly prejudiced against it in my very early days by the church and the Sabbath-school, so that it seemed, before I read it, to be the yellowest book in the catalogue. Yet I early escaped from their meshes. It is hard to get the commentaries out of one's head and taste its true flavor ... It would be a poor story to be prejudiced against the Life of Christ because the book has been edited by Christians. In fact, I love this book rarely, though it is a sort of castle in the air to me, which I am permitted to dream.Henry David Thoreau Hard Days Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: The New Testament is an invaluable book, though I confess to having been slightly prejudiced
I train five days a week hard - but it is short and sharp - 30 to 40 minutes of functional and pretty dynamic body-strength circuits, then I do a good yoga session on the sixth day, then I rest.Bear Grylls Hard Days Sayings By Bear Grylls: I train five days a week hard - but it is short and sharp -
When you are rowing well and hard, the rhythm of the stroke takes over. It drives your days and restores your nights. It imparts cadence and direction. You feel like you and the boats are one, you feel that no obstacle will put up any more resistance than the water does to your oars, you feel that hard work and grit and mental toughness will always win it for you in the end.Barry S. Strauss Hard Days Sayings By Barry S. Strauss: When you are rowing well and hard, the rhythm of the stroke takes over. It
We all have our down days, but it's not hard to smile and say, 'Thank you.'Yvette Nicole Brown Hard Days Sayings By Yvette Nicole Brown: We all have our down days, but it's not hard to smile and say, 'Thank
Voroshilov was a hard-riding, hard-drinking military crony of civil-war days.Kliment Voroshilov Hard Days Sayings By Kliment Voroshilov: Voroshilov was a hard-riding, hard-drinking military crony of civil-war days.
You intend to keep me confined in here with you for three days?" His voice was low and ominous.
"It doesn't have to take three days," she said, "It just depends how long it takes for you to come to your senses."
"My senses?" he shook her so hard she thought her teeth would rattle. "It is you whose mind is disordered if you think you can tame me like some pet! Is that what you think, Vesta? That you can somehow turn a man like me into your little lap dog?"
"No," she said, as earnest as she had ever been in her life. "I could never imagine you as a lap dog. Ever. You are a Mastiff. Big, powerful, dignified, brave, and yet gentle." She nodded with a look of self satisfaction. "Yes. Most definitely a Mastiff."

May walked slowly around the body, studying it. Putrefaction had been halted in its advance, but the corpse's skin had turned green and black, producing an acrid odour. He found it hard to imagine that this man had recently been walking around, eating in restaurants, watching TV. He was someone's lover, someone's son, but there was almost nothing human left. Without a head his trunk bore an unsettling similarity to something you would find in a meat locker. How would his loved ones feel if they could see him like this? 'Get anything else?' 'It's tricky because the usual decay process has been interrupted by the relatively sterile storage of the body. Usually, after two to three days you get staining on the abdomen. The discolouration spreads, veins grow dark, the skin blisters after a week, tissue starts softening and nails fall off at around the three-week stage, and finally the face becomes unrecognisable as the skin liquefies - Christopher Fowler Hard Days Sayings By Christopher Fowler: May walked slowly around the body, studying it. Putrefaction had been halted in its advance,
Never underestimate the power of kindness. It is very contagious. A person whose heart is saddened by the troubles of this world, the loss of a friend or family member, a hard days work, or the struggle of provision can experience joy through a simple act of kindness. Romans 12: 10-12, Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continually steadfastly in prayer.Amaka Imani Nkosazana Hard Days Sayings By Amaka Imani Nkosazana: Never underestimate the power of kindness. It is very contagious. A person whose heart is
Football has always been violent. In the early days of the game, they didn't wear hard helmets. They wore soft helmets, which were just designed to protect the ears. In the '40s and '50s they began to introduce hard helmets, which provided much more protection against things like skull fractures.Greg Ip Hard Days Sayings By Greg Ip: Football has always been violent. In the early days of the game, they didn't wear
The thing about being an artist is that you evolve so quickly, you grow, you learn, you change, you find yourself hating work that you made months prior. That's the hard part about making an album, but every couple days I fall asleep listening to my album front to back and I lay there feeling so proud of what I did.Halsey Hard Days Sayings By Halsey: The thing about being an artist is that you evolve so quickly, you grow, you
I really worked very hard to bring my voice back because I used to have a good voice, and to try to do my exercises that I remember from Yale and all the things in the olden days, clearing your sinuses and all that.Meryl Streep Hard Days Sayings By Meryl Streep: I really worked very hard to bring my voice back because I used to have
To call me in, I'm thinking I don't own a suit, a ring, a watch, a cellphone. I'm dragging up out of the woods here. You boys must be hard up these days.Phil Robertson Hard Days Sayings By Phil Robertson: To call me in, I'm thinking I don't own a suit, a ring, a watch,
I found myself suddenly jealous of the time when things were simple, when days centered on creek walks and tetherball, and your biggest worry was whether you'd have riding or sailing. There were no boys, there were no secrets or rumors, and there were no regrets. Not even fear of regret. There was just a best friend and endless hours to fill with Pixy Stix and laughing so hard you couldn't breathe.Kathryn Williams Hard Days Sayings By Kathryn Williams: I found myself suddenly jealous of the time when things were simple, when days centered
Often at shelters, we hear, 'I told my child she could get a pet, but she will have to take care of him.' That is an unrealistic expectation and often results in the pet being returned days, weeks, or months later. It is hard for pets to go in and out of a home. They bond with their humans and when they find themselves at a shelter, they become stressed at being taken away from home and the people they love. When an 'easy-way-out' decision is made to give up a pet, we are teaching our children that animals can be given away, turned away, and gotten rid of at the drop of a hat. If you are considering getting a cat or kitten, go into it fully aware that the adults in the home will have to help with the care of the pet.Carol Griglione Hard Days Sayings By Carol Griglione: Often at shelters, we hear, 'I told my child she could get a pet, but
WORK, SOMETIMES
I was sad all day, and why not. There I was, books piled
on both sides of the table, paper stacked up, words
falling off my tongue.
The robins had been a long time singing, and now it
was beginning to rain.
What are we sure of? Happiness isn't a town on a map,
or an early arrival, or a job well done, but good work
ongoing. Which is not likely to be the trifling around
with a poem.
Then it began raining hard, and the flowers in the yard
were full of lively fragrance.
You have had days like this, no doubt. And wasn't it
wonderful, finally, to leave the room? Ah, what a
moment!
As for myself, I swung the door open. And there was
the wordless, singing world. And I ran for my life.
Mary Oliver Hard Days Sayings By Mary Oliver: WORK, SOMETIMESI was sad all day, and why not. There I was, books piledon both
But Dexter blinked hard, shook his head then nudged her hand with his. 'So what I thought we'd do for the next couple of days is, you can show me the sights, and I'll just mope about and make stupid remarks.'
She smiled and nudged his hand back. 'It's hardly surprising what you've been through, are going through,' and she covered his hand with her own.
David Nicholls Hard Days Sayings By David Nicholls: But Dexter blinked hard, shook his head then nudged her hand with his. 'So what
Time. There seems to be vast quantities of the stuff spooling around me in all directions, everywhere i look. Days and hours. Weeks and minutes. Years. The hard part, ive discovered, is filling it.Melissa Bank Hard Days Sayings By Melissa Bank: Time. There seems to be vast quantities of the stuff spooling around me in all
It is almost impossible to understand the extent to which upheaval agitated, and by that very fact had temporarily enriched, the mind of M. de Charlus. Love in this way produces real geological upheavals of thought. In the mind of M. de Charlus, which only several days before resembled a plane so flat that even from a good vantage point one could not have discerned an idea sticking up above the ground, a mountain range had abruptly thrust itself into view, hard as rock
but mountains sculpted as if an artist, instead of taking the marble away, had worked it on the spot, and where there twisted about one another, in giant and swollen groupings, Rage, Jealousy, Curiosity, Envy, Suffering, Pride, Astonishment, and Love.
Marcel Proust Hard Days Sayings By Marcel Proust: It is almost impossible to understand the extent to which upheaval agitated, and by that
It's hard to carry a weight of news with none to tell and days ahead before you can release it. Good news weighs just as heavy as bad.Mark Lawrence Hard Days Sayings By Mark Lawrence: It's hard to carry a weight of news with none to tell and days ahead
From the beginning of my days, it comes right back down to my parents. Raising all the kids. They really taught me principles of hard work, honesty and integrity. Those are the things that will always carry with you. My brother and I carry on those qualities that my parents have taught us. It helps keep me in check.Charlie Brenneman Hard Days Sayings By Charlie Brenneman: From the beginning of my days, it comes right back down to my parents. Raising
Harry looked around; there was Ginny running toward him; she had a hard blazing look in her face as she threw her arms around him. And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her. After several long moments, or it might have been half an hour-or possibly several sunlit days- they broke apart.J.K. Rowling Hard Days Sayings By J.K. Rowling: Harry looked around; there was Ginny running toward him; she had a hard blazing look
Film work is hard work. It's long days, and quite often quite dismaying locations you have to be in.Joanna Lumley Hard Days Sayings By Joanna Lumley: Film work is hard work. It's long days, and quite often quite dismaying locations you
There are so many things to say; so many things that can't really be said.
So much has happened; so little has changed.
We have so many words prepared; so many words are too hard to actually say.
A few days have passed; this pain has been here for years.
We don't know where to go from here; our future has always been in our minds.
Moments of peace with those who constantly argue; fights with those that usually bring peace.
There are so many things to say; so many things that can't really be said.
Alysha Speer Hard Days Sayings By Alysha Speer: There are so many things to say; so many things that can't really be said.
I have become more successful in my forties, but that pales in comparison with the other gifts of my current decade
how kind to myself I have become, what a wonderful, tender wife I am to myself, what a loving companion. I prepare myself tubs of hot salt water at the end of the day, and soak my tired feet. I run interference for myself when I am working, like the wife of a great artist would
'No, I'm sorry, she can't come. She's working hard these days, and needs a lot of down time.' I live by the truth that 'No' is a complete sentence. I rest as a spiritual act.
Anne Lamott Hard Days Sayings By Anne Lamott: I have become more successful in my forties, but that pales in comparison with the
War is fought in mystery. The truth can take days to travel, and ahead of truth flies rumor, and it is ever hard to know what is really happening, and the art of it is to pluck the clean bone of fact from the rotting flesh of fear and lies.Bernard Cornwell Hard Days Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: War is fought in mystery. The truth can take days to travel, and ahead of
it often takes a long time for women to "get into" taking care of themselves, and that her need for autonomy was as much about basking in her hard-won self-actualization as it was a reaction to the exhaustion that comes with tending to a child's every need. These days, as I enter my forties, I find that I am only now beginning to feel comfortable in my own skin, to find the wherewithal to respect my own needs as much as others', to know what my emotional and physical limits are, and to confidently, yet kindly, tell others no. (No, I cannot perform that job; no, I cannot meet you for coffee; no, I cannot be in a relationship in which I feel starved for emotional and physical connection.)Meghan Daum Hard Days Sayings By Meghan Daum: it often takes a long time for women to "get into" taking care of themselves,
Ah, in those earliest days of love how naturally the kisses spring into life! So closely, in their profusion, do they crowd together that lovers would find it as hard to count the kisses exchanged in an hour as to count the flowers in a meadow in May.Marcel Proust Hard Days Sayings By Marcel Proust: Ah, in those earliest days of love how naturally the kisses spring into life! So
And all day long, it was hard not to walk around, thinking about the lastness of it all: The last time I stand in a circle outside the band room in the shade of this oak tree that has protected generations of band geeks. The last time I eat pizza in the cafeteria with Ben. The last time I sit in this school scrawling an essay with a cramped hand into a blue boo. The last time I glance up at the clock. The last time I see Chuck Parson prowling the halls, his smile half a sneer. God. I was becoming nostalgic for Chuck Parson. Something sick was happening inside of me.John Green Hard Days Sayings By John Green: And all day long, it was hard not to walk around, thinking about the lastness
Tamlin didn't stop apologizing for days. He made love to me, morning and night. He worshipped my body with his hands, his tongue, his teeth. But that had never been the hard part. We just got tripped up with the rest.Sarah J. Maas Hard Days Sayings By Sarah J. Maas: Tamlin didn't stop apologizing for days. He made love to me, morning and night. He
Bilbo almost stopped breathing, and went stiff himself. He was desperate. He must get away, out of this horrible darkness, while he had any strength left. He must fight. He must stab the foul thing, put its eyes out, kill it. It meant to kill him. No, not a fair fight. He was invisible now. Gollum had no sword. Gollum had not actually threatened to kill him, or tried yet. And he was miserable, alone, lost. A sudden understanding, a pity mixed with horror, welled up in Bilbo's heart: a glimpse of endless unmarked days without light or hope of betterment, hard stone, cold fish, sneaking and whispering.J.R.R. Tolkien Hard Days Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: Bilbo almost stopped breathing, and went stiff himself. He was desperate. He must get away,
There were days when I still put on make up
in case you'd come back,
but I wear the same clothes and shower in the rain
and eat when I can and sleep when I can,
which is rare and not often,
so if you'd see me now
on these streets
where I once imagined walking with you
you'd have a hard time recognising me.
I takes a lot to run away.
Charlotte Eriksson Hard Days Sayings By Charlotte Eriksson: There were days when I still put on make up in case you'd come back,but
Your voice I know. It had me terrified. When I hear it in dreams, from time to time all my life, it sounds like a taunt - but dreams distort sound, for they send it over many waters. During these hard days, I, a pilgrim, am giving my consideration to this. I trudge along the bottom of the river and the questioning goes on in me. What are we made of but hunger and rage? His heels rise and fall in front of me. How surprised I am to be entangled in the knowledge of some other animal.Anne Carson Hard Days Sayings By Anne Carson: Your voice I know. It had me terrified. When I hear it in dreams, from
Develop resilience and be brave. There are days when it is very discouraging. You have to develop personal resilience to environmental things that come along. If you let every single environmental challenge knock you off your game, it's going to be very, very hard.Renee James Hard Days Sayings By Renee James: Develop resilience and be brave. There are days when it is very discouraging. You have
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't angry some days. But I really have worked hard to put a lot of the anger and disappointment in the past.Monica Lewinsky Hard Days Sayings By Monica Lewinsky: I'd be lying if I said I wasn't angry some days. But I really have
Many days passed before we could speak to the Golden One again. But then came the day when the sky turned white, as if the sun had burst and spread its flame in the air, and the fields lay still without breath, and the dust of the road was white in the glow. So the women of the field were weary, and they tarried over their work, and they were far from the road when we came. But the Golden One stood alone at the hedge, waiting. We stopped and we saw that their eyes, so hard and scornful to the world, were looking at us as if they would obey any word we might speak.Ayn Rand Hard Days Sayings By Ayn Rand: Many days passed before we could speak to the Golden One again. But then came

Another year passed on . The waves of time seemed long since to have swept away all trace of poor Mary Barton. But her husband still thought of her, although with a calm and quiet grief, in the silent watches of the night :And Mary would start from her hard-earned sleep,and think in her half dreamy, half awakened state, she saw her mother stand by her bed-side ,as she used to do 'in the days of long-ago'; with shaded candle and an expression of ineffable tenderness, while she looked on her sleeping child.Elizabeth Gaskell Hard Days Sayings By Elizabeth Gaskell: Another year passed on . The waves of time seemed long since to have swept
I am not particularly religious. But I think we do face the question of where God is, why we are created and where does life go, why we exist. That sort of thing. And it is very hard to talk about it these days, because it cannot be proven. It is hard to discuss it rationally.Ang Lee Hard Days Sayings By Ang Lee: I am not particularly religious. But I think we do face the question of where
The last five or six days, I've been running. The last two days, I've been running pretty hard. Everybody's got to be someplace.Bill Russell Hard Days Sayings By Bill Russell: The last five or six days, I've been running. The last two days, I've been
A lot of my stories about the old days, they're delicious and funny. But every time I recall the early days, it's painful. With every anecdote, it's painful because you're summoning up the terribly, terribly difficult life of my parents. And it's painful because I didn't realize at the time how hard it was for them.Mario Cuomo Hard Days Sayings By Mario Cuomo: A lot of my stories about the old days, they're delicious and funny. But every
There were hard days but I never felt sorry for myself.Chris Bosh Hard Days Sayings By Chris Bosh: There were hard days but I never felt sorry for myself.
I woke up today and said today is not like other days. I have no reason to believe this is true. Everything has gone as it ever does for me. But if you consider a day hard enough, you can make it different. The trick is that you can't think about any other day. If I accept a normal day as being thoughtless, this one has been like no other.Unknown Hard Days Sayings By Unknown: I woke up today and said today is not like other days. I have no
I think it is hard to find happiness, as a whole, in anything. The days of tender youth are gone. I think you can be delirious in your youth, but as you get older, things happen.Robert Hilburn Hard Days Sayings By Robert Hilburn: I think it is hard to find happiness, as a whole, in anything. The days
Mostly, in song writing, my experience is that there isn't so much inspiration as hard work. You sit there for hours, days and weeks with a guitar and piano until something good comes. But the urge to write is something you have to have. A conviction, an ambition to write and never stop until you think, 'This is the best I can do.'Bjorn Ulvaeus Hard Days Sayings By Bjorn Ulvaeus: Mostly, in song writing, my experience is that there isn't so much inspiration as hard
What we have is a great number of people working extremely hard to make sure that death number stays where it is and the people that have to go to shelters are taken care of tonight and for as many days as it takes and that we support our first responders that are out there keeping security.Jay Nixon Hard Days Sayings By Jay Nixon: What we have is a great number of people working extremely hard to make sure
And I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that because the days are long, the road is hard, the trials are there and I never know when, I have this little gray cloud that's over my head, when it's gonna start raining on me again. And I do need everyone's prayers. But I also believe that we're here for a purpose, and Mitt is prepared.Ann Romney Hard Days Sayings By Ann Romney: And I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that because the days are long,
We find it hard to picture to ourselves the state of mind of a man of older days who firmly believed that the Earth was the centre of the Universe, and that all the heavenly bodies revolved around it. He could feel beneath his feet the writhings of the damned amid the flames; very likely he had seen with his own eyes and smelt with his own nostrils the sulphurous fumes of Hell escaping from some fissure in the rocks. Looking upwards, he beheld ... the incorruptible firmament, wherein the stars hung like so many lamps.Anatole France Hard Days Sayings By Anatole France: We find it hard to picture to ourselves the state of mind of a man
Some days I hit that wall really hard, and I have to tell myself that I don't believe that stuff anymore. That all the things in my brain, all the little voices whispering that I'm Doing It Wrong, this is just how hegemonies work: by continuous reinforcement; by convincing people that there is only one true way (or a handful of such); by promoting and valuing, over and over, the same narratives without thought to how harmful they can be.Nalo Hopkinson Hard Days Sayings By Nalo Hopkinson: Some days I hit that wall really hard, and I have to tell myself that
I know that my success comes from hard work, help from others, and being at the right place at the right time. I feel a deep and enduring sense of gratitude to those who have given me opportunities and support. I recognize the sheer luck of being born into my family in the United States rather than one of the many places in the world where women are denied basic rights. I believe that all of us - men and women alike - should acknowledge good fortune and thank the people who have helped us. No one accomplishes anything all alone.
But I also know that in order to continue to grow and challenge myself, I have to believe in my own abilities. I still face situations that I fear are beyond my capabilities. I still have days when I feel like a fraud. And I still sometimes find myself spoken over and discounted while men sitting next to me are not. But now I know how to take a deep breath and keep my hand up. I have learned to sit at the table.

These days it seems the lyric impulse, so seemingly fragile, comes in for a lot of abuse-or simply a lot of mistrust. What's it for, anyway, in this hard-edged, worried world? Into this cultural uncertainty Gregory Orr's spirited meditation on the surprisingly tensile strength of poetry in the face of profound suffering and grief presents a welcome fresh view of the ancient human instinct to cry out and to praise.Patricia Hampl Hard Days Sayings By Patricia Hampl: These days it seems the lyric impulse, so seemingly fragile, comes in for a lot
My father, father!' - she might pray to the winds;
no innocence moves her judges mad for war.
Her father called his henchmen on,
on with a prayer,
'Host her over the alter
like a yearling, give it all your strength!
She's fainting - lift her,
sweep her robes around her,
but slip this strap in her gentle curving lips...
here, gag her hard, a sound will curse the house'-
and the bridle chokes her voice... her saffron robes
pouring over the sand
her glance like arrows showering
wounding every murderer through with pity
clear as a picture, live,
she strains to call their names...
I remember often the days with father's guests
when over the feast her voice unbroken,
purees the home her loving father
bearing third libations, sang to Saving Zeus -
transfixed with joy, Atreus' offspring
throbbing out their love.
Aeschylus Hard Days Sayings By Aeschylus: My father, father!' - she might pray to the winds;no innocence moves her judges mad
YOUR BEST ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH.
That sounds harsh, and indeed it is. But having worked with the best of the best over the last two decades, I've learned what it takes to be the best.
Anyone can hit excellence for a day, even a week or a month. That's easy. But a high performer is one who does it consistently for years over the course of a career.
You can be talented, work hard, and do all the right things, and it might not be enough. Not anymore. These days, performance is about results. It's not just showing up every day, working hard, and doing the right things. That's great. That's expected. Performance is about showing up every day and hitting the bull's eye regardless of the situation.
Mark Verstegen Hard Days Sayings By Mark Verstegen: YOUR BEST ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH.That sounds harsh, and indeed it is. But having worked with
Three days ago, I was fired from my job teaching at a college because one of my students
bet me that you don't cum when you get a prostate exam and it took me seven minutes
to prove that dumb fucking kid wrong. It was hard to touch my own prostate, but
ultimately, I was correct. I came onto the floor and onto the person in the desk up front.
I said, "Kids, that is what is known as 'empirical evidence'.

Merton. Gethsemani required a vow of silence, and at dinner if you wanted salt, you had to stare hard at the shaker until another brother noticed. One day, cutting down a tree, Jack couldn't contain himself. He held his head back and roared, "Timber." After that, his days at the monastery were numbered. Within a couple of years, he had married, and he and his young wife, Fran, who herself had just spent a year in a nunnery, opened a Catholic Worker farm in eastern Missouri for recovering alcoholics.Alex Kotlowitz Hard Days Sayings By Alex Kotlowitz: Merton. Gethsemani required a vow of silence, and at dinner if you wanted salt, you
We have had a hard and somewhat dangerous but very successful trip. No less than six weeks were spent... forcing our way down through what seemed a literally endless succession of rapids and cataracts. For forty-eight days we saw no human being. In passing these rapids we lost five of the seven canoes... One of our best men lost his life in the rapids. Under the strain one of the men went completely bad... and when punished by the sergeant he... murdered the sergeant and fled into the wilderness... We have put on the map a river about 1500 kilometres in length... Until now its upper course has been utterly unknown to every one, and its lower course... unknown to all cartographers.Theodore Roosevelt Hard Days Sayings By Theodore Roosevelt: We have had a hard and somewhat dangerous but very successful trip.

Three days later, just as I set off for work, the postman handed me a letter. I opened it on the bus, thinking it might be an early birthday card from some distant cousin. It read, in computer- ized text:
Dear Clark,
This is to show you that I am not an entirely selfish arse. And I do appreciate your efforts.
Thank you.
Will
I laughed so hard the bus driver asked me if my lottery numbers had come up.

To a shameful extent, the charm of marriage boils down to how unpleasant it is to be alone. This isn't necessarily our fault as individuals. Society as a whole appears determined to render the single state as nettlesome and depressing as possible: once the freewheeling days of school and university are over, company and warmth become dispiritingly hard to find; social life starts to revolve oppressively around couples; there's no one left to call or hang out with. It's hardly surprising, then, if when we find someone halfway decent, we might cling.Alain De Botton Hard Days Sayings By Alain De Botton: To a shameful extent, the charm of marriage boils down to how unpleasant it is
You have not slept for many days together, Legna. Why do you assume you might have success today?
Legna turned around sharply, driving her gaze and attention out the window, trying to use the sprawling lawn as a slate with which to fill her mind. Mind Demon he was not, but she knew he was capable of seeing far enough into her emotional state by just monitoring her physiological reactions to his observations. Legna bit her lip hard, furious that she should feel like the child he always referred to her as in their conversations. Young one, indeed. How would he like it if she referred to him as a decrepit old buzzard?

The Darkling will hunt you for the rest of your days."
"Then you and I will have something in common, won't we? Besides, I like to have powerful enemies. Makes me feel important."
Mal crossed his arms and considered the privateer. "I can't decide if you're crazy or stupid."
"I have so many good qualities," Sturmhond said. "It can be hard to choose.

He has reverted, in other words, back into a pure balls-to-the-wall nerdism rivaled only by his early game-coding days back in Seattle. The sheer depth and involution of the current nerdism binge would be hard to convey to anyone. Intellectually, he is juggling half a dozen lit torches, Ming vases, live puppies, and running chainsaws. In this frame of mind he cannot bring himself to give a shit about the fact that this incredibly powerful billionaire has gone to a lot of trouble to come and F2F with him.Neal Stephenson Hard Days Sayings By Neal Stephenson: He has reverted, in other words, back into a pure balls-to-the-wall nerdism rivaled only by
Boys normally attended the school for seven or eight years, beginning at the age of seven. The schoolday was long and characterized by an extreme devotion to tedium. Pupils sat on hard wooden benches from six in the morning to five or six in the evening, with only two short pauses for refreshment, six days a week.Bill Bryson Hard Days Sayings By Bill Bryson: Boys normally attended the school for seven or eight years, beginning at the age of
