Moments

Famous quotes containing the word moments:

    There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There are moments when the body is as numinous
    as words, days that are the good flesh continuing
    Such tenderness, those afternoons and evenings,
    saying blackberry, blackberry, blackberry.
    Robert Hass (b. 1941)

    Parenting is not logical. If it were, we would never have to read a book, never need a family therapist, and never feel the urge to call a close friend late at night for support after a particularly trying bedtime scene. . . . We have moments of logic, but life is run by a much larger force. Life is filled with disagreement, opposition, illusion, irrational thinking, miracle, meaning, surprise, and wonder.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)
