Famous quotes containing the words types of, types, seismic and/or waves:

    Our children evaluate themselves based on the opinions we have of them. When we use harsh words, biting comments, and a sarcastic tone of voice, we plant the seeds of self-doubt in their developing minds.... Children who receive a steady diet of these types of messages end up feeling powerless, inadequate, and unimportant. They start to believe that they are bad, and that they can never do enough.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    The bourgeoisie loves so-called “positive” types and novels with happy endings since they lull one into thinking that it is fine to simultaneously acquire capital and maintain one’s innocence, to be a beast and still be happy.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    Most near, most dear, most loved and most far,
    Under the window where I often found her
    Sitting as huge as Asia, seismic with laughter,
    George Barker (b. 1913)

    Come unto these yellow sands,
    And then take hands.
    Curtsied when you have and kissed
    The wild waves whist,
    Foot it featly here and there;
    And, sweet sprites, the burden bear.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
