What silence falls upon us then, the sad silence of our envy.John Banville Sifts Sayings By John Banville: Of all the things we fashioned for them that they might be comforted, dawn is
Even skeptical Dan prayed, his skepticism falling away from him like a discarded garment in this valley of the shadow, which sifts out hearts and tries souls, until we all, grown-up or children, realize our weakness, and, finding that our own puny strength is as a reed shaken in the wind, creep back humbly to the God we have vainly dreamed we could do without.L.M. Montgomery Sifts Sayings By L.M. Montgomery: Even skeptical Dan prayed, his skepticism falling away from him like a discarded garment in

When the cold comes to New England it arrives in sheets of sleet and ice. In December, the wind wraps itself around bare trees and twists in between husbands and wives asleep in their beds. It shakes the shingles from the roofs and sifts through cracks in the plaster. The only green things left are the holly bushes and the old boxwood hedges in the village, and these are often painted white with snow. Chipmunks and weasels come to nest in basements and barns; owls find their way into attics. At night,the dark is blue and bluer still, as sapphire of night.Alice Hoffman Sifts Sayings By Alice Hoffman: When the cold comes to New England it arrives in sheets of sleet and ice.

Yes, yes, I'm coming. Right up the top of the house. One moment I'll linger. How the mud goes round in the mind - what a swirl these monsters leave, the waters rocking, the weeds waving and green here, black there, striking to the sand, till by degrees the atoms reassemble, the deposit sifts itself, and a gain through the eyes one sees clear and still, and there comes to the lips some prayer for the departed, some obsequy for the souls of those one nods to, the one never meets again.Virginia Woolf Sifts Sayings By Virginia Woolf: Yes, yes, I'm coming. Right up the top of the house. One moment I'll linger.
I do not know what inspires the image of a fish but it comes to me, wide eyed, open mouthed and gaping, glimmering, swimming towards me as though a creature of the darkness come to claim me. I imagine it in a twinkling blue pool. It swims through the dark currents of the sea, gliding above sea weed, beneath sunlight, augmenting and shying away from the surface. It belongs to this element between land and sky, sifts through it, a creature of the deep. My mind drifts, fades, but then comes back to the fish: its glimmering scales, its strange beady eyes. Its body is contained within the water. It opens its mouth, moving it open and closed as though it's trying to speak a language I never learned. I think about the fish's lungs, full of water. Is not the sea contained within the fish, too?Annie Fisher Sifts Sayings By Annie Fisher: I do not know what inspires the image of a fish but it comes to

The desire for sudden change and the thought of their realization by force often appears among men like a disease and gains ground mainly in young brains; only these brains do not think as they should, do not amount to anything in the end and the heads that think thus do not remain long on their shoulders. For it is not human desires that dispose and administer the things of this world. Desire is like a wind, it sifts the dust from one place to another, sometimes darkens the whole horizon, but in the end calms down and leaves the old and eternal picture of the world. Lasting deeds are realized on this earth only by God's will, and man is only His humble and blind tool.Ivo Andric Sifts Sayings By Ivo Andric: The desire for sudden change and the thought of their realization by force often appears
Time doesn't click on and on at the stroke. It comes and goes in waves and folds like water; it flutters and sifts like dust, rises, billows, falls back on itself. When a wave breaks, the water is not moving. The swell has traveled great distances but only the energy is moving, not the waves. Perhaps time moves through us and not through it.Tim Winton Sifts Sayings By Tim Winton: Time doesn't click on and on at the stroke. It comes and goes in waves
Like sheaves of corn it gathers you unto itself. It threshes you to make you naked. It sifts you to free you from your husks. It grinds you to whiteness. It kneads you until you are pliant. And then it assigns you to its sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast. All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's Heart.Khalil Gibran Sifts Sayings By Khalil Gibran: Like sheaves of corn it gathers you unto itself. It threshes you to make you

Wherever it hits, it crystallizes into a granulated coating of ice.Margaret Atwood Sifts Sayings By Margaret Atwood: The freezing rain sifts down, handfuls of shining rice thrown by some unseen celebrant. Wherever
In the most basic way, writers are defined not by the stories they tell, or their politics, or their gender, or their race, but by the words they use. Writing begins with language, and it is in that initial choosing, as one sifts through the wayward lushness of our wonderful mongrel English, that choice of vocabulary and grammar and tone, the selection on the palette, that determines who's sitting at that desk. Language creates the writer's attitude toward the particular story he's decided to tell.Donald E. Westlake Sifts Sayings By Donald E. Westlake: In the most basic way, writers are defined not by the stories they tell, or
When one sifts place, ka-lyrra, one comes out on top of whatever currently occupies that space. Which isn't much of a problem if one also has all one's powers. But I don't. We hit a lake somewhere around the ninety-seventh hop. And, contrary to popular belief, I don't walk on water."

~Adam to Gabby

Agony does not vanish with time. Time does not heal. Time may wear away the sharper pangs of torment and it may be that the agony is a remembered agony, but the littlest remembrance brings vividly alive the reality of pain. Time sifts a little dust over the wounds that is blown away by the simplest reminder. Agony remains.Manning Norvil Sifts Sayings By Manning Norvil: Agony does not vanish with time. Time does not heal. Time may wear away the
