Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

The Devil and Miss Prym

There is still something very important missing--a companion with whom to share all this beauty.

Profoundest changes take place within a very reduced time frame.

Challenge will not wait.

You shouldn't believe in promises. The world is full of them.

About the lies he had been obliged to believe because he could not accept reality.

Men take the oddest satisfaction in feeling superior without knowing that most of the time they are being utterly predictable.

She was all too familiar with the silence of this remote place which signified not peace and tranquility but a total absence of new things to say.

It was a wretched place in which everything was predictable, organized and reliable.

Everyday was another day spent waiting. Every night was a night when she might meet someone who would recognize her true worth.

She realized that there were 2 things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune when you least expected it. For at that moment, all our fears suddenly surface: fear of life full of new challenges, the fear of losing everything that is familiar.

People want to change everything and at the same time want it all to remain the same.

Good and evil have the same face. It all depends when they cross the path of each individual human being.

Rich men never waste a penny, only poor people do that.

They only think they have everything under their control, when in fact, they control nothing.

Dangerous men and women never make threats.

There are two kinds of idiots--those who don't take action because they have received a threat, and those who think they are taking action because they have issued a threat.

The best way to weaken ones enemy was to get them to believe that you were on his side.

Of all the days in our life, which is the one that never comes? Tomorrow.

I can almost touch your fear.

Even God has a hell: his love for mankind.

I was always a man of action.

Cowards--they never lose or win.

The answer is simple: chance.

It isn't the desire to abide by the law that makes everyone behave as society requires but they fear of punishment. Each one of us carries gallows inside.

Your not trying to find the answer to a question, your simply trying to confirm something you desperately want to believe: that everyone is evil.

Life is a reign of terror in the shadow of the guillotine.

Mankind is only virtuous because terror exists.

They were losing nothing by waiting.

An authority derived from terror leaving fear and suffering for later.

Man needs what is worst in him in order to achieve what is best in him.

Forgive God.

We have committed the sin of pride in believing ourselves to be better than we are and that is why we are suffering.

Death often frees us from a lot of senseless suffering.

Silence doesn't always mean consent--usually all it meant was that people were incapable of coming up with an immediate response.

They seek suffering in the most joyous of places because they think they are unworthy of happiness.

It was all a matter of control or choice.

Life can seem either very long or very short, according to how you lived it.

To follow our dreams and master the fear that prevents us from living.

Twilight

I ate breakfast without tasting the food.

It's too easy to be myself with you.

I can't stay with you. And I'm afraid that I'd like to stay with you, much more than I should.

So involved was I in my escapist daydreams, I lost all track of the seconds racing by.

To be perfectly honest, she'll be unavailable every night, as for as anyone besides myself is concerned.--Edward to Mike

He means well.

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.

It was nice to be alone, not to have to smile and look pleased; a relief to stare dejectedly out the window at the sheeting rain and let just a few tears escape.

I didn't struggle to forget.

Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget.

My temper was hardwired to my tear ducts.

"It's twilight, " Edward muttered..."The easiest to me. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night."

I was at a loss to know how.

My mind had too much free time.

You are exactly my brand of heroine.

My personal hell to ruin me.

Thank you, but no thanks.

Breaking Dawn

Each pain had a simple answer, a clear action to end that pain.

She's everything you want and everything you can't have.

Because you always want the very most what you can never have.

Pain so bad you'd take death a smile just to get away from it.

Reality was knowing there was something so much important than all this torture and not being able to remember what it was.

One infinite moment of pain.

Childhood is not birth to a certain age and at a certain age. The child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies. --St. Edna Vincent Millay

Bachelor parties are designed for those who are sad to see the passing of their single days. I couldn't be more eager to have mine behind me.

I'm sure about you. The rest I could live through.

Waste not, want not.You are officially perfect.

Always have, always will.

And yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays. --William Shakespeare

Fly on the Wall Vol 1-2

To pull ones punches is to do a disservice to oneself, as well as to ones opponent. It defies the value for excellence and the rule of fair play. To pull ones punch is to say that the other is unworthy of your best shot. It means you forfeit taking your best shot.

It has always fascinated me why others can't rein in their impulse to aggress against others for the most inane reasons--like, maybe they don't like your hair, the way you walk, or the fact that others like you. They don't realize that their feeling is their problem. Or if they do realize that, they don't want to be responsible for their problem, so they set out to make it yours.

Girls handicap themselves more often than boys. We are set early on the road of regulating the display of our ability and denying the best we can be in order to make relationships work.

She'll find that there will be roads that she will need to travel alone where others are ill-equipped to follow.

She is of generation that needed their parents in youth and graduated to adulthood compelled to need their children.

Regarding smoking--it takes courage to pick one's own poison rather than letting the world dis it out on you.

How could one person be more than another.

We are at our greatest human potential in childhood until the real world touches us.

So caught up we become in making the days speed past that sometimes we are jolted by the question of where the time has gone. And then we realize that we don't have the excuse of youth anymore to make crazy choices and take zany chances of life.

Until you allow time to touch you, you haven't lived.

But first, get to know the enemy. It might very well be yourself.

Morality plays that take center stage in our time are mostly about evil versus evil and that life, more often than not, is about learning to choose the lesser.

To blunt the blow when it comes

Life is a place we've never been.

The ignorant ones is not to be found only in the classrooms.

There's nothing like anonymity to bring out the wild side in many.

Sh*t happens.

Victory won through acts of aggression are empty.

That's what upstarts are for. They think they can achieve where others have failed.

One learns loud and clear that which he wants to hear but is likely to close those ears when the words run counter to his position.

We take offense when people say the truth because we'd rather take the lies.

They don't learn because they see learning as an external event that happens only on their seatmates' paper.

Logically, we could expect that given the amount of available knowledge out there and the relative ease with which the younger could access it, we should have in our midst a generation of walking encyclopedias.

Weapons were invented to compensate for male inarticulateness.

When did love mean having to be who we are not?

Only to discover that what we left behind is that which what we seek to find.

Fate of our own making is not a matter of opinion, argument or wishful thinking.

I was fascinated how a mind so sharp in most way could fail to grasp the obvious.

They took up the space in my heart that I didn't know could hold so much.


We are more likely to be abused by someone you know than by a stranger.

The abused becomes the abuser.

We remember very well the promise that was you.

What we love is what would most likely kill you.

People practicing the heresy called love.

Like knows like.

Within each of us resides a sort of alternate selves.

Actions speak and words just get in the way.

When something goes wrong with someone else, I really truly hope it isn't something that my silence on a previous occasion provided the precedence for someone else to get hurt in the same way and--God forbid--for the hurtful practice to be institutionalized where it would do no harm anymore.

To loosen its stranglehold / so much is possible

Kettle calling the pot dirty brown

People who react in anger generally react out of character.

Rape is not so much about the innocence of he accused until proven guilty, it is also about the integrity of the victim until proven a liar.

Have enough to make do when there'll be a need to.

The point of everyday is for us to prove ourselves worthy of breath.

Far be it for me

The measure of a people's character emerges when thing suddenly don't work as they should.

Never mind if the teacher disagreed with what grade my answer was good for.

We become what we do.

Intentions sometimes do not translate to action.

Never underestimate the power of the situation to affect behavior.

Who says we need bullets when looks could kill?

Overcome emotion with reason

You cannot make everything right to everyone.

We...must understand death. It often is ll that the world would let us have.

Justice is just a word that she has heard.

How much truth is sacrificed for convenience, pride and propaganda.

Apology will only be an issue with one of guilty conscience.

Same old, same old.

He who fights and runs away fights to run another day.

Better the devil that you don't know that the devil you do.

Time enough for things to get a little bit more complicated, as happens when one is just a text message away.

Those books look like they needs brains to work out.

Stop whining and kick ass.

Touch is a power thing.
