Boys [should be] inured from childhood to trifling risks and slight dangers of every possible description, such as tumbling into ponds and off of trees, etc., in order to strengthen their nervous system ... They ought to practice leaping off heights into deep water. They ought never to hesitate to cross a stream over a narrow unsafe plank for fear of a ducking. They ought never to decline to climb up a tree, to pull fruit merely because there is a possibility of their falling off and breaking their necks. I firmly believe that boys were intended to encounter all kinds of risks, in order to prepare them to meet and grapple with risks and dangers incident to man's career with cool, cautious self-possession ...R.M. Ballantyne Tumbling Sayings By R.M. Ballantyne: Boys [should be] inured from childhood to trifling risks and slight dangers of every possible
All the details of my life were in exact order and yet I was tumbling in them-out of order like a tremendous wave had hit me and I was thrown off the ship and I awoke or dreaming, or dead I knew not-no I couldn't speak.Eileen Myles Tumbling Sayings By Eileen Myles: All the details of my life were in exact order and yet I was tumbling
It felt terrific. It felt deeper and richer than laughter. It felt like opening a door and tumbling headfirst into a pile of feathers.Leslea Tash Tumbling Sayings By Leslea Tash: It felt terrific. It felt deeper and richer than laughter. It felt like opening a
And yet they acquired. They built scaffolds of debt, and just when it seemed the pile would come tumbling down from the weight, they bought a living room set on layaway, tossed it up on top. And as they needed to acquire, they seemed to need to discard in equal or larger measure. There was an almost violent addiction in the piles of trash he saw, the sense it gave him of shitting out food you shouldn't have eaten in the first place.Dennis Lehane Tumbling Sayings By Dennis Lehane: And yet they acquired. They built scaffolds of debt, and just when it seemed the
As she spoke, the dice started tumbling inside his head.Robert Jordan Tumbling Sayings By Robert Jordan: As she spoke, the dice started tumbling inside his head.
The world doesn't really change, does it? We come and we go, and we think we're so important, we can't possibly comprehend how the world doesn't come tumbling down when our lives do. It's so cold, so heartless. So beautiful. It doesn't matter how many of us walk across the surface of the planet. The sun will still rise when we've finished rising with it. The earth is no less warmer for our absence on it.Rose Christo Tumbling Sayings By Rose Christo: The world doesn't really change, does it? We come and we go, and we think

He thought of himself not as something heavy that left tracks behind it, but if anything, as a speck upon the surface of an earth too deeply asleep to notice the scratch of ant feet, the rasp of butterfly teeth, the tumbling of dustJ.M. Coetzee Tumbling Sayings By J.M. Coetzee: He thought of himself not as something heavy that left tracks behind it, but if
He splashed into the water, his whole body, not with the reverent attitude of prayer, but with a desperate thirst; he buried his head under the water and drank deep, with his cheek against the cold stone of the riverbed, the water tumbling over his back, his calves. He drank and drank, lifted his head and shoulders above the water to gasp in the evening air, and then collapsed into the water again, to drink as greedily as before.
It was a kind of prayer, though, he realized as he emerged, freezing cold as the water evaporated from his skin in the breeze of the dark morning.
I am with you, he said to the Oversoul. I'll do whatever you ask, because I long for you to accomplish your purpose here.
Orson Scott Card Tumbling Sayings By Orson Scott Card: He splashed into the water, his whole body, not with the reverent attitude of prayer,
How unutterably sweet is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows us completely. No talebearer can inform on us; no enemy can make an accusation stick; no forgotten skeleton can come tumbling out of some hidden closet to abash us and expose out past; no unsuspected weakness in our characters can come to light to turn God away from us, since He knew us utterly before we knew him and called us to Himself in the full knowledge of everything that was against us.Aiden Wilson Tozer Tumbling Sayings By Aiden Wilson Tozer: How unutterably sweet is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows us completely. No talebearer
Tell me what to do," he said. "Tell me what to do to help you."
Rhys kept the plate beyond reach. He spoke again, and as if the words tumbling out loosened his grip on his power, talons of smoke curled over his fingers and great wings of shadow spread from his back. "Months and months, and you're still a ghost. Does no one there ask what the hell is happening? Does your High Lord simply not care?"
He did care. Tamlin did care. Perhaps too much. "He's giving me space to sort it out," I said, with enough of a bite that I barely recognized, my voice.
"Let me help you," Rhys said. "We went through enough Under the Mountain - -"
I flinched.
"She wins," Rhys breathed. "That bitch wins if you let yourself fall apart.
Sarah J. Maas Tumbling Sayings By Sarah J. Maas: Tell me what to do," he said. "Tell me what to do to help you."
The balance and patience factors are much more critical in surfing than they are in snowboarding ... if you're out surfing serious waves and you wipe out, you don't land on soft snow. It's usually either very sharp coral, or you get raked across the beach gravel and sand while you're tumbling underwater.Frederick Lenz Tumbling Sayings By Frederick Lenz: The balance and patience factors are much more critical in surfing than they are in
If liberty sang a song, little,
as the larynx of a bird,
nowhere would there remain a tumbling wall.
Ahmad Shamlou Tumbling Sayings By Ahmad Shamlou: If liberty sang a song, little,as the larynx of a bird,nowhere would there remain a
And is there any reason, we ask as we shut the book, why the perspective that a plain earthenware pot exacts should not satisfy us as completely, once we grasp it, as man himself in all his sublimity standing against a background of broken mountains and tumbling oceans with stars flaming in the sky?Virginia Woolf Tumbling Sayings By Virginia Woolf: And is there any reason, we ask as we shut the book, why the perspective
To be born again," sang Gibreel Farishta tumbling from the heavens, "first you have to die.Salman Rushdie Tumbling Sayings By Salman Rushdie: To be born again," sang Gibreel Farishta tumbling from the heavens, "first you have to
Listening (had there been any one to listen) from the upper rooms of the empty house only gigantic chaos streaked with lightning could have been heard tumbling and tossing, as the winds and waves disported themselves like the amorphous bulks of leviathans whose brows are pierced by no light of reason, and mounted one on top of another, and lunged and plunged in the darkness or the daylight (for night and day, month and year ran shapelessly together) in idiot games, until it seemed as if the universe were battling and tumbling, in brute confusion and wanton lust aimlessly by itself.Virginia Woolf Tumbling Sayings By Virginia Woolf: Listening (had there been any one to listen) from the upper rooms of the empty
I always try to appreciate the most fleeting moments. The idea of the acrobats constantly tumbling and trying to adjust - I think that is what we do with aesthetics. It is a cyclical rhythmPhillip Lim Tumbling Sayings By Phillip Lim: I always try to appreciate the most fleeting moments. The idea of the acrobats constantly
I sit, but I'm still stiff as a board. My hands are clenched tight, as if I'm holding my tears in my palms and if I loose my grip, they'll come tumbling out.Lauren Morrill Tumbling Sayings By Lauren Morrill: I sit, but I'm still stiff as a board. My hands are clenched tight, as
I probably have less revision than those who have that wonderful rush of story to tell - you know, I can't wait to tell you what happened the other day. It comes tumbling out and maybe then they go back and refine. I kind of envy that way of working, but I just have never done it.Amy Hempel Tumbling Sayings By Amy Hempel: I probably have less revision than those who have that wonderful rush of story to
There was a certain liberation in talking to a man who didn't have a full grasp of English. She could tell him anything and half of it would fly right past him, especially if the words came tumbling out fast enoughAnne Tyler Tumbling Sayings By Anne Tyler: There was a certain liberation in talking to a man who didn't have a full
Nothing could be seen whole or read from start to finish. What was seen begun - like two friends starting to meet each other across the street - was never seen ended. After twenty minutes the body and mind were like scraps of torn paper tumbling from a sack and, indeed, the process of motoring fast out of London so much resembles the chopping small of identity which precedes unconsciousness and perhaps death itself ...Virginia Woolf Tumbling Sayings By Virginia Woolf: Nothing could be seen whole or read from start to finish. What was seen begun
She had softened at his concern for her, but his tone was back to being scathing. She deduced that his concern was not for her safety. Dealing with the dead bodies of guests who broke their necks tumbling down his staircase in too long skirts would have disturbed his schedule.Anya Wylde Tumbling Sayings By Anya Wylde: She had softened at his concern for her, but his tone was back to being
David O. Russell's best films are thrilling high wire acts that run the moment to moment risk of tumbling to the ground. In his latest, "Joy," Russell has more trouble than usual keeping his balance on the wire.David O. Russell Tumbling Sayings By David O. Russell: David O. Russell's best films are thrilling high wire acts that run the moment to
They turned on themselves, like a feverish wheel, all tumbling spokes. Margot stood alone. She was a very frail girl who looked as if she had been lost in the rain for years and the rain had washed out the blue from her eyes and the red from her mouth and the yellow from her hair. She was an old photograph dusted from an album, whitened away, and if she spoke at all her voice would be a ghost. Now she stood, separate, staring at the rain and the loud wet world beyond the huge glass.Ray Bradbury Tumbling Sayings By Ray Bradbury: They turned on themselves, like a feverish wheel, all tumbling spokes. Margot stood alone. She
It was wild and dark and grand and tall and fierce and haunting all at once. And it thrilled me to the core. It thrilled me and it frightened me, for it whipped at my carefully closeted heart, much as the wind had whipped at my hair and skirts and sent my bonnet tumbling.Julianne Donaldson Tumbling Sayings By Julianne Donaldson: It was wild and dark and grand and tall and fierce and haunting all at
It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her: the two beds in their double room that could comfortably sleep three people each; the throaty clunking of the machine down the corridor that ejected fat glinting ice cubes, tumbling like coins from a jackpotting fruit machine; the toothache temperature of the Cokes from the mini bar (she had never known drinks to be so cold); the improbable proportions of the cars on the freeway; the sleek gleefulness of the morning TV presenters with drawls so sassy they sounded put on; the enormity of the breakfasts and the people who ate them. America seemed souped-up to JoAnne, as though it had to be bigger, better, colder, hotter, cheerier, louder, just all-round "er" than everywhere else.Tina Seskis Tumbling Sayings By Tina Seskis: It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her:
Give in to it, angel."
"Give in to what?"
"The hunger," he said, his tongue slowly running across his bottom lip. "The need. Give in to the craving. Give in to me."
"Never," she whispered, the word impulsively tumbling from her lips, no conviction in her feeble voice.
"I know you feel it, deep inside of you, screaming out to be acknowledged, to be satiated," he continued as if she hadn't spoken. "I can sense it, clawing underneath your skin, begging to be let loose, begging to be invited out to play.
J.M. Darhower Tumbling Sayings By J.M. Darhower: Give in to it, angel.""Give in to what?""The hunger," he said, his tongue slowly running
I twist away, pulling her with me, and the battle begins. We roll over each other, tumbling, wrestling, tangling in the sand until my hands find her hands and my lips find her lips and then we slow. We slow and slow and slow until we move together as one.Veronica Rossi Tumbling Sayings By Veronica Rossi: I twist away, pulling her with me, and the battle begins. We roll over each
We have seen some of the greatest athletes fall because they have tried to take shortcuts. I'm not going to call any names but we talk about guys that was like at the top of their game that people just idolized. They looked in awe and all of a sudden you see them just come tumbling down because they want to take shortcuts. I think it's more rewarding when you do it the old fashioned way.Jerry Rice Tumbling Sayings By Jerry Rice: We have seen some of the greatest athletes fall because they have tried to take
The pools had been written onto the fields by the rain. The pools were a magic worked by the rain, just as the tumbling of the black birds against the grey was a spell that the sky was working and the motion of grey-brown grasses was a spell that the wind made. Everything had meaning.Susanna Clarke Tumbling Sayings By Susanna Clarke: The pools had been written onto the fields by the rain. The pools were a
Silence? What can New York-noisy, roaring, rumbling, tumbling, bustling, story, turbulent New York-have to do with silence? Amid the universal clatter, the incessant din of business, the all swallowing vortex of the great money whirlpool-who has any, even distant, idea of the profound repose ... of silence?Walt Whitman Tumbling Sayings By Walt Whitman: Silence? What can New York-noisy, roaring, rumbling, tumbling, bustling, story, turbulent New York-have to do
But sometimes things happen that no one hopes for. Events that cause everything you've worked towards, the life you've carefully constructed piece by piece, to come tumbling down all around you. No one is to blame, but you're left with a wound you can't heal on your own and can't believe you'll ever learn to accept, so you struggle to escape the pain. Only time can heal wounds as deep as that - a lot of time - and all you can really do is place yourself in its hands and try to consider the passing of each day a victory. You tough it out moment by moment, hour by hour, and after some weeks or months you begin to see signs of recovery. Slowly the wound heals into a scar.Ryu Murakami Tumbling Sayings By Ryu Murakami: But sometimes things happen that no one hopes for. Events that cause everything you've worked

The vision I see in the mirror is me, who I am, supposedly, but that vision does not express the way my mind works or the way I feel inside. A realization creeps over me, the words tumbling into my head quietly like falling leaves.
I.
Am.
Crazy.
This is my new shameful truth. Something changed yesterday. A door has been opened that I can never close again. I touch my reflection, the glass smooth and cold, not really believing that the girl I see is me.
Victoria Sawyer Tumbling Sayings By Victoria Sawyer: The vision I see in the mirror is me, who I am, supposedly, but that
What's the most critical factor in any business decision you'll ever have to make? Basically, it boils down to this question: If this all crashes, will it bring the whole house tumbling down like a pack of cards? One business matra remains embedded in my brain - protect the downside.Richard Branson Tumbling Sayings By Richard Branson: What's the most critical factor in any business decision you'll ever have to make? Basically,
Why did it take so long for a Darwin to arrive on the scene? What delayed humanity's tumbling to that luminously simple idea which seems, on the face of it, so much easier to grasp than the mathematical ideas given us by Newton two centuries earlier - or, indeed, by Archimedes two millennia earlier?Richard Dawkins Tumbling Sayings By Richard Dawkins: Why did it take so long for a Darwin to arrive on the scene? What
Here's to loving for that long, too, and loving perfectly, without error or sorrow, held forever on the edge of madness by our desire, but never tumbling over. Salud.Ron Currie Jr. Tumbling Sayings By Ron Currie Jr.: Here's to loving for that long, too, and loving perfectly, without error or sorrow, held
He tasted like summertime - of wicked thunderstorms, fresh clover, and wild honeysuckle - and I had the sensation of falling, my stomach tumbling over and over again until calm finally reached in, rooting deep and stretching out to encompass everything: my mind, my body. And my soul - whatever that was.
The same clean, almost scentless breeze whipped over us again, just like it had the first night we'd met, and I could physically feel one chapter of my life closing and another beginning.
Angela B. Wade Tumbling Sayings By Angela B. Wade: He tasted like summertime - of wicked thunderstorms, fresh clover, and wild honeysuckle - and
Something inside him shifted and came to rest, as if it had found its proper place. It was like one of his sister's wooden tumbling puzzles, like the satisfying click it made when all its many turning pieces were perfectly aligned.Lena Goldfinch Tumbling Sayings By Lena Goldfinch: Something inside him shifted and came to rest, as if it had found its proper
I am falling, tumbling through the air, but this time the darkness is alive around me, full of beating things, and I realize that I'm not surrounded by dark but have only had my eyes closed all this time. I open them, feeling silly, and at the same time a hundred thousand butterlies take off around me, so many of them in so many brilliant colors they are like a solid rainbow, temporarily obscuring the sun. But as they wing higher and higher they reveal a landscape below us, all green and gold and sun-drenched fields and pink-tinged clouds drifting underneath me, and the air around me is clear and blue and sweet smelling, and I'm laughing, laughing, laughing as I spin through the air because, of course, I haven't been falling all the time.
I've been flying.
Lauren Oliver Tumbling Sayings By Lauren Oliver: I am falling, tumbling through the air, but this time the darkness is alive around
Bay stood there, red hair curling around her face and the mass tumbling down her back and over her shoulders. Her green eyes were bright with the fear she probably thought she'd hidden so well. ENFORCER'S REDEMPTIONCarrie Ann Ryan Tumbling Sayings By Carrie Ann Ryan: Bay stood there, red hair curling around her face and the mass tumbling down her
You could not presume that people were healthy. You could not presume that they would welcome the little nudges and jostlings of life. You had to behave as though everyone you met was walking a thin wire far above the earth, where the slightest wind might rock them off their balance and send them tumbling to the ground.Kevin Brockmeier Tumbling Sayings By Kevin Brockmeier: You could not presume that people were healthy. You could not presume that they would
I came up with the best pastime in the history of man. What you do is find an aerosol tin of spray adhesive, such as you would use to stick posters to a wall. You then lie in wait and when a wasp flies by, you leap out and give it a squirt. Bingo. One minute it's flying; the next it's tumbling silently out of the sky with a confused look on its stupid little face.Jeremy Clarkson Tumbling Sayings By Jeremy Clarkson: I came up with the best pastime in the history of man. What you do
I do tumbling and flips; there's a gym I go to for that.Jake Short Tumbling Sayings By Jake Short: I do tumbling and flips; there's a gym I go to for that.

He loved, beneath all this summer transiency, to feel the earth's spine beneath him; for such he took the hard root of the oak tree to be; or, for image followed image, it was the back of a great horse that he was riding, or the deck of a tumbling ship
it was anything indeed, so long as it was hard, for he felt the need of something which he could attach his floating heart to; the heart that tugged at his side; the heart that seemed filled with spiced and amorous gales every evening about this time when he walked out.
Virginia Woolf Tumbling Sayings By Virginia Woolf: He loved, beneath all this summer transiency, to feel the earth's spine beneath him; for
The trick is to ride the wave,
Fast, wide-open and
in deep Now-magic.
Free, burning fear for fuel
Generous, knowing there is always more where that came from.
Cresting, spray of liquid jewels hanging, shining in the sun and wind.
Flying down the wave in graceful slices.
Rolling, tumbling under, over
Breathless falling, floating into the deep dark beneath.
Rising, face breaks the surface
Laughing
Kneeling, standing
Riding again.
Sunset waits behind the horizon
But daylight begs us to swim
Out beyond
Where our feet can't touch bottom.
Into the deep wild
Where the next wave can
sweep us higher,
Show us what else is possible
In this marvelous place.
Jacob Nordby Tumbling Sayings By Jacob Nordby: The trick is to ride the wave,Fast, wide-open and in deep Now-magic.Free, burning fear for

It was seven o'clock of a very warm evening in the Seeonee hills when Father Wolf woke up from his day's rest, scratched himself, yawned, and spread out his paws one after the other to get rid of the sleepy feeling in their tips. Mother Wolf lay with her big gray nose dropped across her four tumbling, squealing cubs, and the moon shone into the mouth of the cave where they all lived. "Augrh!" said Father Wolf. "It is time to hunt again." He was going to spring down hill when a little shadow with a bushy tail crossed the threshold and whined: "Good luck go with you, O Chief of the Wolves. And good luck and strong white teeth go with noble children that they may never forget the hungry in this world.Rudyard Kipling Tumbling Sayings By Rudyard Kipling: It was seven o'clock of a very warm evening in the Seeonee hills when Father
Patient endurance permits us to cling to our faith in the Lord and our faith in His timing when we are being tossed about by the surf of circumstance. Even when a seeming undertow grasps us, somehow, in the tumbling, we are being carried forward, though battered and bruised.Neal A. Maxwell Tumbling Sayings By Neal A. Maxwell: Patient endurance permits us to cling to our faith in the Lord and our faith
There was something soul-burningly about being on the brink of losing control, tumbling over into the unknown, and I wanted to fall and never resurface.

The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there ...Stephen King Tumbling Sayings By Stephen King: The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down
Who else would think to take running notes? With your nose rubbing constantly against the pages of scribbled life, while life, the real McCoy, lifted two fingers at you and went tumbling into the surf with a flock of Tahitian girls. Flowers in their hair and laughter on their lips.

Words move, turning over like tumbling clowns; like certain books and like fleas, they possess activity. All men equally have the right to say, 'This word shall bear this meaning,' and see if they can get it across. It is a sporting game, which all can play, only all cannot win.Rose Macaulay Tumbling Sayings By Rose Macaulay: Words move, turning over like tumbling clowns; like certain books and like fleas, they possess

...the world is tumbling with innocent-seeming objects ready to declare themselves, slippery and obliging.Alice Munro Tumbling Sayings By Alice Munro: ...the world is tumbling with innocent-seeming objects ready to declare themselves, slippery and obliging.
What people had had shed and left
a pair of shoes, a shooting cap, some faded skirts and coats in wardrobes
those alone kept the human shape and in the emptiness indicated how once they were filled and animated; how once hands were busy with hooks and buttons; how once the looking-glass had held a face; had held a world hollowed out in which a figure turned, a hand flashed, the door opened, in came children rushing and tumbling; and went out again. Now, day after day, light turned, like a flower reflected in water, its sharp image on the wall opposite. Only the shadows of the trees, flourishing in the wind, made obeisance on the wall, and for a moment darkened the pool in which light reflected itself; or birds, flying, made a soft spot flutter slowly across the bedroom floor.
Virginia Woolf Tumbling Sayings By Virginia Woolf: What people had had shed and lefta pair of shoes, a shooting cap, some faded
[He]
Spoke and rose to full height, sword in air,
Then cleft the man's brow square between the temples
Cutting his head in two
a dreadful gash
Between the cheeks all beardless. Earth resounded
Quivering at the great shock of his weight
As he went tumbling down in all his armor,
Drenched with blood and brains; in equal halves
His head hung this and that way from his shoulders.
Virgil Tumbling Sayings By Virgil: [He]Spoke and rose to full height, sword in air,Then cleft the man's brow square between

John laughed. "Out here, any cake is a treat."
"But everyone has a favorite." Her eyes smiled at Nick. "Well?"
"Chocolate, ma'am." The words surprised him by tumbling out of his mouth.
"Chocolate, it is," she said gaily. "Good thing I brought cocoa powder with me."
John winked at Nick before turning to his wife. "You practically brought all of Boston with you.

I blushed. You haven't seen a bald man in his sixties blush? Oh, it happens, just as it does to a hairy, spotty fifteen-year-old. And because it's rarer, it sends the blusher tumbling back to that time when life felt like nothing more than one long sequence of embarrassments.Julian Barnes Tumbling Sayings By Julian Barnes: I blushed. You haven't seen a bald man in his sixties blush? Oh, it happens,
Much of life, fatherhood included, is the story of knowledge acquired too late: if only I'd known then what I know now, how much smarter, abler, stronger, I would have been. But nothing really prepares you for kids, for the swells of emotion that roll through your chest like the rumble of boulders tumbling downhill, nor for the all-enveloping labor of it, the sheer mulish endurance you need for the six or seven hundred discrete tasks that have to be done each and every day. Such a small person! Not much bigger than a loaf of bread at first, yet it takes so much to keep the whole enterprise going. Logistics, skills, materiel; the only way we really learn is by figuring it out as we go along, and even then it changes on us every day, so we're always improvising, which is a fancy way of saying that we're doing things we technically don't know how to do.Ben Fountain Tumbling Sayings By Ben Fountain: Much of life, fatherhood included, is the story of knowledge acquired too late: if only
The whole social structure is now tumbling down, dethroning its God, undermining all its certainties. All this, wonderfully enough, is being done in the name of the health, wealth, and happiness of all mankind.Malcolm Muggeridge Tumbling Sayings By Malcolm Muggeridge: The whole social structure is now tumbling down, dethroning its God, undermining all its certainties.
I had seen stars in such numbers that they filled the sky. It almost seemed as if the sky would break under the weight of all those things and come tumbling down. Never had I seen such an amazing skyful of stars.Haruki Murakami Tumbling Sayings By Haruki Murakami: I had seen stars in such numbers that they filled the sky. It almost seemed
And I think I kind of break him just a little bit because suddenly he's begging and begging and begging, the words catching and then tumbling from his mouth like pearls on a broken string. AndAlexis Hall Tumbling Sayings By Alexis Hall: And I think I kind of break him just a little bit because suddenly he's
Travis let his knees give way, sending her tumbling to the floor.

I've taken a lot of time to build up the name Flavor Flav, but this could come tumbling down in 30 seconds. If you want to keep what you worked for hard all your life, then you got to do the right thing in your life.Flavor Flav Tumbling Sayings By Flavor Flav: I've taken a lot of time to build up the name Flavor Flav, but this
There's a huge difference between I screwed up (guilt) and I am a screwup (shame). The former is acceptance of our imperfect humanity. The latter is basically an indictment of our very existence. It's always helpful to remember that when perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not healthy striving. It is not asking, How can I be my best self? Instead, it's asking, What will people think? When looking at our own stories, we can benefit from wondering: Did something happen in this story that left me feeling like my cover was blown, revealing that I'm really not what I want people to think I am? Did my pretend/please/perfect/perform/prove house of cards come tumbling down? For those of us who struggle with perfectionism, it's not difficult to find ourselves in a situation similar to Andrew's, one where we look back and think, I got sucked into proving I could, rather than stepping back and asking if I should - or if I really even wanted to.Brene Brown Tumbling Sayings By Brene Brown: There's a huge difference between I screwed up (guilt) and I am a screwup (shame).
This wine makes me feel like I'm bathed in amnion, breathless, fed by the motherbloodflow in the umbilical vein, fetal, slippery and tumbling over and over in the warmth of the beating womb, warm amnion, warmnion.Samuel Shem Tumbling Sayings By Samuel Shem: This wine makes me feel like I'm bathed in amnion, breathless, fed by the motherbloodflow
Theoretically, I knew, Sholokov's design for the hawking mat allowed it to fly vertically, the incipient containment field keeping the passenger - theoretically, his beloved niece - from tumbling off backward.Dan Simmons Tumbling Sayings By Dan Simmons: Theoretically, I knew, Sholokov's design for the hawking mat allowed it to fly vertically, the
Plunge a sponge into Lake Erie. Did you absorb every drop? Take a deep breath. Did you suck the oxygen out of the atmosphere? Pluck a pine needle from a tree in Yosemite. Did you deplete the forest of foliage? Watch an ocean wave crash against the beach. Will there never be another one? Of course there will. No sooner will one wave crash into the sand than another appears. Then another, then another. This is a picture of God's sufficient grace. Grace is simply another word for God's tumbling, rumbling reservoir of strength and protection. It comes at us not occasionally or miserly but constantly and aggressively, wave upon wave. We've barely regained our balance from one breaker, and then, bam, here comes another.Max Lucado Tumbling Sayings By Max Lucado: Plunge a sponge into Lake Erie. Did you absorb every drop? Take a deep breath.
Even though Mr. Dalton gave millions of dollars for Negro education, he would rent houses to Negroes only in this prescribed area, this corner of the city tumbling down from rot. In a sullen way Bigger was conscious of this. Yes; he would send the kidnap note. He would jar them out of their senses. WhenRichard Wright Tumbling Sayings By Richard Wright: Even though Mr. Dalton gave millions of dollars for Negro education, he would rent houses

A messenger? Who is it? Is Lord Shigeru expecting a message? Do we know what it's about?" George's questions came tumbling out before Horace had a chance to begin answering. He shook his head and smiled at his old childhood companion. "I don't know. I don't know. And ... I don't know," he said. He saw George's shoulders relax as he realized his questions had been unreasonable. "I imagine we'll find out when he comes up to us." "OfJohn Flanagan Tumbling Sayings By John Flanagan: A messenger? Who is it? Is Lord Shigeru expecting a message? Do we know what
Finally there came a perfect storm of drafts from uptown and downtown, a big humid uric wind that swept the platform and then reversed itself, and reversed itself again, so that the dollar bills came levitating out of the guitar case and drifted up and down the platform like leaves in autumn, tumbling and skidding, while the band played on. It was perfectly beautiful and perfectly sad, and everybody on the platform knew it, nobody bent down to touch the money.Jonathan Franzen Tumbling Sayings By Jonathan Franzen: Finally there came a perfect storm of drafts from uptown and downtown, a big humid
In the halls of heaven it was now dark enough for the Aurora Borealis sisters to begin their lively dance of the veils. With an enchanting play of colors they flitted light and quick about the great stage of the heavens, in fluttering golden dresses, their tumbling pearl necklaces scattering here and there in their wild caperings.Sjon Tumbling Sayings By Sjon: In the halls of heaven it was now dark enough for the Aurora Borealis sisters
The pre-dawn air was quiet and cool; the sky showed the colors of citron, pearl, and apricot, which were reflected from the sea. Out from the Tumbling River estuary drifted the black ship Smaadra, propelled across the water by its sweeps. A mile offshore, the sweeps were shipped. The yards were raised, sails sheeted taut and back-stays set up. With the sunrise came breeze; the ship glided quickly and quietly into the east, and presently Troicinet had become a shadow along the horizon.Jack Vance Tumbling Sayings By Jack Vance: The pre-dawn air was quiet and cool; the sky showed the colors of citron, pearl,
All my tips and tricks and woes and worries are gong to come tumbling out before you. I'm going to divulge them. What a juicy work that is, 'divulge.' Truth opening its petals.

I'm unsure why one trifling incident this afternoon has moved me to write to you. But since we've been separated, I may most miss coming home to deliver the narrative curiosities of my day, the way a cat might lay mice at your feet: the small, humble offerings that couples proffer after foraging in separate backyards. Were you still installed in my kitchen, slathering crunchy peanut butter on Branola though it was almost time for dinner, I'd no sooner have put down the bags, one leaking a clear vicious drool, than this little story would come tumbling out, even before I chided that we're having pasta tonight so would you please not eat that whole sandwich.Lionel Shriver Tumbling Sayings By Lionel Shriver: I'm unsure why one trifling incident this afternoon has moved me to write to you.
We are here, Fitz, you and I, to change the future of the world. To reach out and hold in place the tiny pebble that could trigger the boulder's tumbling.Robin Hobb Tumbling Sayings By Robin Hobb: We are here, Fitz, you and I, to change the future of the world. To

The boarded-up homes, the decaying storefronts, the aging church rolls, kids from unknown families who swaggered down the streets - loud congregations of teenage boys, teenage girls feeding potato chips to crying toddlers, the discarded wrappers tumbling down the block - all of it whispered painful truths.Barack Obama Tumbling Sayings By Barack Obama: The boarded-up homes, the decaying storefronts, the aging church rolls, kids from unknown families who

When heavy cloud decks enveloped the planet, they created a whole new surface that had never before existed, of high mountain ranges, tumbling ravines. Sometimes the clouds would create huge cliffs, sheer walls miles high into which shadows fell to give them a startling sense of solidity, as though the whiteness below was some Antarctic winter mountain scene now spread across all the visible world. No oceans, no land surface, only that startling, shifting panorama, and then, suddenly, it became something else. Ethereal clouds. Some were misty, others wispy, but most were ghostlike. They appeared everywhere or strangely vanished, then showed up again, brushing the edges of islands and the shores of continents. They were members of the cloud family, a living race dancing and floating above the planetary surface. Astonished, awed, he had the strangest thought that perhaps this is what the angels could see . . . Deke gloriedAlan Shepard Tumbling Sayings By Alan Shepard: When heavy cloud decks enveloped the planet, they created a whole new surface that had
. . . they beheld its atlas-familiar snowy poles, its blue land-locked seas, its green forests and yellow plains and wide red deserts. They looked down upon Mount Olympus, so tall her summit rose about the highest snow, and the bustling lands of the Grand Valley, thick with cities and towns. As their earth loomed closer, they saw the glittering moonring and here the oracle-eye rested, filling the room with incomprehensible drifting shapes. Some were so huge they took minutes to cross the room, some were tiny and tumbling, some were busy as insects, flitting through the spectators intent upon their small errands; all of them bore the name ROTECH somewhere upon them.Ian McDonald Tumbling Sayings By Ian McDonald: . . . they beheld its atlas-familiar snowy poles, its blue land-locked seas, its green
Just before the Clear Air Turbulence went back into warp and its crew sat down at the table, the ship expelled the limp corpse of Zallin. Where it had found a live man in a suit, it left a dead youth in shorts and a tattered shirt, tumbling and freezing while a thin shell of air molecules expanded around the body, like an image of departing life.Iain Banks Tumbling Sayings By Iain Banks: Just before the Clear Air Turbulence went back into warp and its crew sat down

Writing when perched along a ledge of conscious awareness while simultaneously giving voice to the unconscious voice tumbling within allows a writer to tap into the external world of the known while also exploring the unconscious world of the unknown and the unknowable. For as long as I can stand the mounting pressure, I dance along this tremulous thin line separating sanity and insanity, mediating the conflicts between a lucid intellect and an impulsive, instinctual nature. Captivated in this submerged psyche space, disengaged from conscious tether of personal identity, and free from the jaundiced constraints and dictatorial commands of rational logic, I operate unencumbered by preconceived limitations.Kilroy J. Oldster Tumbling Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: Writing when perched along a ledge of conscious awareness while simultaneously giving voice to the
I think of the pastness of the past: how the moment I am alive in, prisoned in, moves like a slowly tumbling form through darkness, the underground river. Not only ancient history - the mythical age of the brothers' feud - but my own history one second ago, has vanished utterly, dropped out of existence.John Gardner Tumbling Sayings By John Gardner: I think of the pastness of the past: how the moment I am alive in,

I would not have Drool reading Cicero or crafting clever riddles, but under my tutelage he had become more than fair at tumbling and juggling, could belch a song, and was, at court, at least as entertaining as a trained bear, with slightly less proclivity for eating the guests. With guidance, he would make a proper fool.Christopher Moore Tumbling Sayings By Christopher Moore: I would not have Drool reading Cicero or crafting clever riddles, but under my tutelage
