“A boomerang returns back to the person who throws it.

But first, while moving in a circle, it hits its target.

So does gossip.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“Some fail to bear in mind that everyone is sentenced to death. Death is a treacherous virus that strikes randomly. The only truth is that nobody is going to make it out alive. We are all living on probation and our expiry date is indefinite. ( “Living on probation” )”
Erik Pevernagie

A.J. Darkholme
“It’s true what they say, that words are the true weapons. Those who fight with steel are limited to the strength of their arm, the reach of their blade, and the timing of their strike; but those who fight with persuasion know no limits – not time, nor status, nor chance.”
A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

Alan Paton
“In the meantime the strike is over, with a remarkably low loss of life. All is quiet, they report, all is quiet.

In the deserted harbour there is yet water that laps against the quays. In the dark and silent forest there is a leaf that falls. Behind the polished panelling the white ant eats away the wood. Nothing is ever quiet, except for fools.”
Alan Paton, Cry, the Beloved Country

Robin Hobb
“Assassins take no pride in fighting fairly. We take pride in winning.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Quest

Soke Behzad Ahmadi

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don't give up! It seems difficult to you, right? Why not do something little about it every? A little strike each day can chop down big trees. Give it a try!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Joe Abercrombie

Joe Abercrombie, Best Served Cold

Anthony Liccione
“She knows her timing, always knows. The time to strike or the time to starve. Her eyes as a clock, she watches she waits she learns, and in the second she blinks, she changes her mind just like that.”
Anthony Liccione

Israelmore Ayivor
“No struggle, no success! The strongest thunder strikes often bring the heaviest rainfall! The weight of your fulfillment depends on how wide you cast your nets!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Anthony Liccione
“Please don´t drown into his fears, his concrete fists don´t let him again, break the bridge of your nose with his cruel born hits. Then disappear into that mask of misery.”
Anthony Liccione

Robert Galbraith
“Can I ask who you are, sir?"

"Yeah, I expect so," said Strike, walking past him and ringing the doorbell. Anstis's dinner invitation notwithstanding, he was not feeling sympathetic to the police just now. "Should be just about within your capabilities.”
Robert Galbraith, The Silkworm

Robert Galbraith
“One of the earliest and most vivid memories of Robin’s childhood was of the day that the family dog had been put down. She herself had been too young to understand what her father was saying; she took the continuing existence of Bruno, her oldest brother’s beloved Labrador, for granted. Confused by her parents’ solemnity, she had turned to Stephen for a clue as to how to react, and all security had crumbled, for she had seen, for the first time in her short life, happiness and comfort drain out of his small and merry face, and his lips whiten as his mouth fell open. She had heard oblivion howling in the silence that preceded his awful scream of anguish, and then she had cried, inconsolably, not for Bruno, but for the terrifying grief of her brother.”
Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo's Calling

Israelmore Ayivor
“Give a try; give a shot. Sometimes, you must not only expect the way to be too clear; strike when you can!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Soke Behzad Ahmadi
“To react, is to be A slave to someone else's actions. Sometimes, A warrior is faced with the decision to strike pre-emptively, trusting his intuition, wisdom and years of training”
Soke Behzad Ahmadi

Israelmore Ayivor
“I observed that when a footballer is about to make a threatening strike to score a goal, there comes a big shout from spectators at the field. He could either get detracted to miss the opportunity or motivated to make it happen. Such is life!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Israelmore Ayivor
“Remember no matter how fast you run, you can't be the winner if you don't finish. As someone said, to be the first to finish, you must finish first! Go, take the strike!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“When you are suffering from sexual starvation, a spank or even a hug seems like a porn scene.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Israelmore Ayivor
“Never become proud within yourself when you are seen as the one to cause that great effect. Never become timid if you know you can while others dare to prove otherwise! Mind your business and make the strike.”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Jean Baudrillard
“So, there is no longer striking, nor work, but both simultaneously, that is to say something else: a magic of work, a trompel'oeil, a scenodrama (so as not to say a melodrama) of production, a collective dramaturgy on the empty stage of the social.”
Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation

Conn Iggulden
“For the khan, we will take their cities, their women, and their lands. This is the great raid, the farthest strike in the history of the nation of Genghis. We will not be stopped.”
Conn Iggulden, Khan: Empire of Silver

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don't say you won't strike now. "Not now" is what brings forth "never done". Strike it early, strike it now... But remember to strike it hard! Go and make the strike!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Kit Habianic
“Beneath Albright’s office, the colliery sprawled across the hillside, red brick buildings scattered as though hurled from a great height, a hotchpotch of mismatched structures spattered on the valley floor. At the bottom stood the winding house, wheels motionless, above it, the engineering sheds and workshops, canteen and bath house. All lay empty. No buzz and hum of machinery. No voices raised in laughter or dispute. Gwyn found it unsettling: his lads had been out a month and a half and already the power had drained from the place. In the stillness, he caught the echo of footsteps. The crunch of boots on gravel. Generations of long-gone Pritchards clocking in and out. He was bound to Blackthorn by the coal that clogged his veins and by a bond of duty. The strike left him as diminished as his pit, day dragging after idle day.”
Kit Habianic, Until Our Blood is Dry

“It seems that now is the time to take risks and strike.”
Roger Parkinson, The War in the Desert

Jacob Wren
“An objection was made that judging what had already been done to me, if we proceeded some of us would most certainly be killed. And several others, each in their own language, countered that the way we were living here, the way we were treated, we might as well be dead already, that things couldn't get worse. Things can always get worse, someone yelled from the back, when you reach hell there is always another hell underneath.”
Jacob Wren, Rich and Poor

Israelmore Ayivor
“Goals are easily scored with either a skillful strike or a strong one. If you make a strong strike, it's impossible for it to be defended by obstacles in your goal!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“When I write sometimes I strike gold, sometimes I labor in vain and keep producing rubbish”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity

Israelmore Ayivor
“Plan strategically and strike it once to win. You can achieve maximum dues with minimum dice if only you are willing to clearly calculate and throw your efforts with optimism!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Criss Jami
“Those small moments of pleasure men get from sin, from defying God, are perhaps grace - His final gift still to those who hard-heartedly choose to deny Him. Godless men may blatantly enjoy offending God not because they are free-spirited, but on the whole because He moves them to enjoy it. Sin is, in a sense, still touching God: for a strike involves a touch. Perhaps this is His divine kindness. Faithful men find everlasting fulfillment in His good company; but godless men who strike at the Author of Joy, who are completely ignorant of the greater, for them - and by God's love for His enemies - there is yet this small recoil known as 'pleasure' before the fall.”
Criss Jami, Healology
