Favorite Bora Bora Quotes

1. "The years... when I pursued the inner images were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. It began at that time, and the later details hardly matter anymore. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything was then."
Author: C.G. Jung
2. "I am a collaborator with everyone who agrees that I need to be in control. I happily collaborate with my loyalists."
Author: Dan Harmon
3. "In human studies, black cohosh has been found to decrease hot flashes associated with menopause. Unlike conventional estrogen effects on individuals predisposed to breast cancer, black cohosh has been shown in laboratory studies to inhibit cancer cells. Most studies used doses of 20–80 mg twice daily, providing 4–8 mg triterpene glycosides for up to six months. Melatonin—This hormone is produced in the pineal gland that, among other functions, helps sleep. Melatonin levels decline with age and may lead to the sleep disturbances common during menopause. Melatonin has been shown in laboratory studies to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. Melatonin acts as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in the brain and other tissues like the intestine. Studies show that low melatonin levels increase breast cancer risk in women. So if you are having trouble sleeping consider 3–6 mg of melatonin before bed. It may boost your immune system and help you sleep."

4. "As soon as he had disappeared Deborah made for the trees fringing the lawn, and once in the shrouded wood felt herself safe.She walked softly along the alleyway to the pool. The late sun sent shafts of light between the trees and onto the alleyway, and a myriad insects webbed their way in the beams, ascending and descending like angels on Jacob's ladder. But were they insects, wondered Deborah, or particles of dust, or even split fragments of light itself, beaten out and scattered by the sun?It was very quiet. The woods were made for secrecy. They did not recognise her as the garden did. ("The Pool")"
Author: Daphne Du Maurier
5. "French Polynesia embraces a vast ocean area strewn with faraway outer islands, each with a mystique of its own. The 118 islands and atolls are scattered over an expanse of water 18 times the size of California, though in dry land terms the territory is only slightly bigger than Rhode Island. The distance from one end of the island groups to another is four times further than from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Every oceanic island type is represented in these sprawling archipelagoes positioned midway between California and New Zealand. The coral atolls of the Tuamotus are so low they're threatened by rising sea levels, while volcanic Tahiti soars to 2,241 meters. Bora Bora and Maupiti, also high volcanic islands, rise from the lagoons of what would otherwise be atolls."
Author: David Stanley
6. "Because that was the problem, really, wasn't it, with being human? You couldn't just be, couldn't just live and exist without dragging your feet through the mud. You had to communicate, congregate, collaborate, cohabiate. You had to corroborate. Copulate. You had to co-this, co-that, co—bloody-everything, and if you weren't co-operating you were operating with the co, which was a declaration less of independence than of relativity. You could only really exist in relation to others."
Author: Deborah Copaken Kogan
7. "Once upon a time, about 10 years ago, I thought maybe I could write a mystery series about a midwife in Elizabethan England. I had an elaborately convoluted title and an elaborately convoluted plotline, and at that point I got stupendously bored."
Author: Deborah Harkness
8. "There's four main pillars to the bow tie - self-representation, service, collaboration and critical thought. You have to understand how to represent yourself and critically understand how to collaborate and serve others."
Author: Dhani Jones
9. "Collaboration is important not just because it's a better way to learn. The spirit of collaboration is penetrating every institution and all of our lives. So learning to collaborate is part of equipping yourself for effectiveness, problem solving, innovation and life-long learning in an ever-changing networked economy."
Author: Don Tapscott
10. "Mandela alikuwa hodari ndiyo maana akapelekwa jela. Alikuwa mvumilivu ndiyo maana akakaa jela kwa miaka ishirini na saba. Alivyotoka akawa kiongozi bora wa Afrika Kusini. Utu ukafanya awasamehe binadamu wenzake. Urithi wa Nelson Mandela kwetu ni uhodari, uvumilivu, uongozi bora, utu na msamaha kwa binadamu wenzetu. Mandela alikuwa baba kwa familia yake. Kwa Afrika Kusini alikuwa mlezi wa ndoto, ya amani na uhuru."
Author: Enock Maregesi

Author: Gilles Marini
13. "Finally, as the digestive canal is a complex system, a series of separate chemical laboratories, I cut the connections between them in order to investigate the course of phenomena in each particular laboratory; thus I resolved the digestive canal into several separate parts."
Author: Ivan Pavlov

Author: Ivo Andric
15. "My laboratory is interested in the related challenges of understanding the origin of life on the early earth, and constructing synthetic cellular life in the laboratory. Focusing on artificial life frees us to explore novel chemical systems, but what we learn from these systems helps us to understand possible pathways leading to the origin of life. Our basic design for a synthetic cell involves the encapsulation of a spontaneously replicating nucleic acid, which acts as the genetic material, within a spontaneously replicating membrane vesicle, which provides spatial localization. We are using chemical synthesis to make nucleic acids with modified nucleobases and sugar-phosphate backbones."
Author: Jack W. Szostak
16. "Ele assegurou-lhe de que a amava e pediu em troca aquele coração que talvez soubesse tão bem quanto ela que já lhe pertencia. Pois, embora Henry agora gostasse de verdade de Catherine, embora se deliciasse com todas as qualidades de sua personalidade e de fato adorasse sua companhia, devo confessar que sua afeição tivera origem na mera gratidão ou, em outras palavras, que aquilo que aprofundara seus sentimentos fora a certeza da natureza dos dela. É uma circunstância nova nos romances, reconheço, e terrivelmente aviltante para a dignidade de uma heroína; mas se for tão inédita assim na vida real, então ao menos o mérito de possuir uma imaginação fértil será todo meu."
Author: Jane Austen
17. "Faceci sa jak niektóre radioaktywne pierwiastki: maja bardzo krótki czas polowicznego rozpadu. Potem juz promieniuja sladowo. I przewaznie tylko w innych laboratoriach. Chociaz niekoniecznie. Wystarczy, ze laborantka jest obca i mlodsza."
Author: Janusz Leon Wisniewski
18. "To become a collaborative team player . . . •Think win-win-win. King Solomon of ancient Israel observed, "Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."3 Usually when you collaborate with others, you win, they win, and the team wins. Find someone on the team with a similar role whom you have previously seen as a competitor. Figure out ways you can share information and work together to benefit both you and the team."
Author: John Maxwell
19. "Another guy came in, and he said he was quitting his job at the Research Laboratory; said anything a scientist worked on was sure to wind up as a weapon, one way or another. Said he didn't want to help politicians with their fugging wars anymore. Name was Breed. I asked him if he was any relation to the boss of the fugging Research Laboratory. He said he fugging well was. Said he was the boss of the Research Laboratory's fugging son."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
20. "Who, in the midst of passion, is vigilant against illness? Who listens to the reports of recently decimated populations in Spain, India, Bora Bora, when new lips, tongues and poems fill the world?"
Author: Lauren Groff
21. "Znate li što je najveca pogreška Hrvata? Zaboravljivost. Slabo sjecanje. Nitko na svijetu tako brzo i savršeno ne zaboravlja zloce što ih je netko pocinio na Hrvatima kao oni sami."
Author: Marija Jurić Zagorka
22. "Narodi se likvidiraju tako da im se najprije oduzme sjecanje. Unište im se knjige, obrazovanje, povijest. Netko drugi im napiše druge knjige, da im drugo obrazovanje i izmisli drugu povijest. I narod onda postupno pocne zaboravljati što je bio i što je sada, a svijet oko njega to zaboravi još mnogo brže."
Author: Milan Kundera
23. "Na Mirnu bijaše gotovo prestao misliti. Velovi zaborava polako su maglili jedno ovalno lice, kosu. Ponekad, nocu, kao nejako svjetlo iz duboke tame zaiskrile bi oci sa zlacanim tackicama na dužicama, dušom se zakotrljali biseri nekog davnog smijeha. Nasmiješio bi se u mraku, ni sretno ni tužno, s gotovo zaboravljenom sjetom. Ne dopuštajuci mislima da se otmu i pohrle zaraslim stazama, promijenio bi položaj, ponekad pomislio- laku noc, uspomeno, i nastavio spavati."
Author: Nura Bazdulj Hubijar
24. "But it's a curse, a condemnation, like an act of provocation, to have been aroused from not being, to have been conjured up from a clot of dirt and hay and lit on fire and sent stumbling among the rocks and bones of this ruthless earth to weep and worry and wreak havoc and ponder little more than the impending return to oblivion, to invent hopes that are as elaborate as they are fraudulent and poorly constructed, and that burn off the moment they are dedicated, if not before, and are at best only true as we invent them for ourselves or tell them to others, around a fire, in a hovel, while we all freeze or starve or plot or contemplate treachery or betrayal or murder or despair of love, or make daughters and elaborately rejoice in them so that when they are cut down even more despair can be wrung from our hearts, which prove only to have been made for the purpose of being broken. And worse still, because broken hearts continue beating."
Author: Paul Harding
25. "It's beautiful," I said for what had to be the third time. "It's just awfully...elaborate."Lysander made a disgusted sound and threw up his hands. "It should be elaborate! You're meant to be a goddess!"I had no idea how to reply to that, but Nick saved me. Leaping to his feet, he said, "And you do look like a goddess, Sophie." He took my hand and pulled me off the platform, spinning me. "See? Embrace your goddessness."Nick may have been a weirdo and a half, but I chuckled."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
26. "All great inventions emerge from a long sequence of small sparks; the first idea often isn't all that good, but thanks to collaboration it later sparks another idea, or it's reinterpreted in an unexpected way. Collaboration brings small sparks together to generate breakthrough innovation."
Author: Scott Belsky
27. "No Geologist worth anything is permanently bound to a desk or laboratory, but the charming notion that true science can only be based on unbiased observation of nature in the raw is mythology. Creative work, in geology and anywhere else, is interaction and synthesis: half-baked ideas from a bar room, rocks in the field, chains of thought from lonely walks, numbers squeezed from rocks in a laboratory, numbers from a calculator riveted to a desk, fancy equipment usually malfunctioning on expensive ships, cheap equipment in the human cranium, arguments before a road cut."
Author: Stephen Jay Gould
28. "Vi er alt krek som lever langs breddene, langs elvestrendene. Vi fyller nettene. Vi er alle svarte små skjolddyr lenger inne på land – vi som har små hol å krype inn i når steinane over oss blir vende rundt. Vi er alle som borar i slammet når straumen botnfell. Vi borar i sakene og lever uendeleg. Vi er der nede og der inne som lyset ikkje når, vi har vårt eige lys, vi kravlar forbi einannan med lysa våre, og kravlar vidare einsame i stort mørker."
Author: Tarjei Vesaas
29. "Every collaboration I do, I feel like I've benefitted in so many different ways; it all depends on the organization. With Moncler, there is such a heritage to the brand and to the way that they work. With Brooks Brothers, in the same way, having the heritage to draw from in that collaboration is invaluable."
Author: Thom Browne
30. "I view the whole thing as a collaboration. As an actor, I always found that to be the most freeing thing, when the director would collaborate with you, so that together you'd come up with something exponentially better."
Author: Tony Goldwyn
31. "I love being in a band. I love that collaborative spirit, although some would suggest that I don't get involved in the collaborative spirit, but it's not true."
Author: Trevor Rabin
32. "Hoy en día no nos damos cuenta que la cualidad única de una obra de arte no hay que buscarla en una idea concebida por acto de gracia e independiente de la experiencia de la naturaleza: en el arte convergen todas nuestras experiencias vividas, elaboradas y resumidas según los normales procesos imaginativos, salvo que lo que hace única la obra es el modo en el que esta elaboración se vuelve concreta y se ofrece a la percepción, a través de un proceso de interacción entre experiencia vivida, voluntad de arte y legalidad autónoma del material sobre el que se trabaja."
Author: Umberto Eco
33. "So [Steve Jobs] had the Pixar building designed to promote encounters and unplanned collaborations ... "to make people get out of their offices and mingle in the central atrium with people they might not otherwise see." The front doors and main stairs and corridors all led to the atrium, the cafe and the mailboxes were there, the conference rooms had windows that looked out onto it, and the six-hundred-seat theater and two smaller screening rooms all spilled into it. "Steve's theory worked from day one, "Lasseter recalled. "I kept running into people I hadn't seen for months. I've never seen a building that promoted collaboration and creativity as well as this one."
Author: Walter Isaacson
34. "We could say that the human race is a great coauthorship in which we are collaborating with God and nature in the making of ourselves and one another. From this there is no escape. We may collaborate either well or poorly or we may refuse to collaborate, but even to refuse to collaborate is to exert an influence and to affect the quality of the product. This is only a way of saying that by ourselves we have no meaning and no dignity; by ourselves we are outside the human definition, outside our identity."
Author: Wendell Berry
35. "At my urgent request the Curie laboratory, in which radium was discovered a short time ago, was shown to me. The Curies themselves were away travelling. It was a cross between a stable and a potato-cellar, and, if I had not seen the worktable with the chemical apparatus, I would have thought it a practical joke.(Wilhelm Ostwald on seeing the Curie's laboratory facilities.)"
Author: Wilhelm, Ostwald

Today's Quote

We've learned that some of our favorite things like DDT and the propellants in aerosol cans were rapidly unraveling the structure and substance of our biosphere. We gave them up, and reversed the threats. Now the reforms required of us are more systematic, and nobody seems to want to go first. (To be more precise, the U.S.A. wants to go last.)"
