Famous quotes with Gemstones

  • Outer Beauty can only please the Eye, but the Inner Beauty conquers the Heart. Inner Beauty is best seen in Diamonds, the most precious gemstones, which sparkle and shine when the Sun is out; but when the darkness sets in, they reveal their true beauty with illuminating light from within. No matter what others say or do, you must remember that you are a Diamond, and you must preserve your Divine Spark of Inner Beauty to illuminate the world.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • The earth, he'd say, is just a big machine. A big processing plant. A factory. That's your big answer. The big truth. Think of a rock polisher, one of those drums, goes round and round, rolls twenty-four/seven, full of water and rocks and gravel. Grinding it all up. Round and round. Polishing those ugly rocks into gemstones. That's the earth. Why it goes round. We're the rocks. And what happens to us--the drama and pain and joy and war and sickness and victory and abuse--why, that's just the water and sand to erode us. Grind us down. To polish us up, nice and bright.
    Chuck Palahniuk
