She can't put two moves together. It's pathetic, really. Everybody is betting against her." "I see," said Butler, straightening. Mulch held the door.

That one's pretty much spot-on."

Author: Jesse Metcalfe
10. "Old friend, there are people—young and old—that I like, and people that I do not like. The former are always in short supply. I am turned off by humorless fanaticism, whether it's revolutionary mumbo-jumbo by a young one, or loud lessons from scripture by and old one.

Author: Julie James

Author: Ken Follett

Author: Kresley Cole
17. "They say that in D.C., all the museums and the monuments have been concessioned out and turned into a tourist park that now generates about 10 percent of the Government's revenue.The Feds could run the concession themselves and probably keep more of the gross, but that's not the point. It's a philosophical thing. A back-to-basics thing. Government should govern. It's not in the entertainment industry, is it? Leave entertaining to Industry weirdos -- people who majored in tap dancing. Feds aren't like that. Feds are serious people. Poli-sci majors. Student council presidents. Debate club chairpersons. The kinds of people who have the grit to wear a dark wool suit and a tightly buttoned collar even when the temperature has greenhoused up to a hundred and ten degrees and the humidity is thick enough to stall a jumbo jet. The kinds of people who feel most at home on the dark side of a one-way mirror."
Author: Neal Stephenson

More girls are killed in this routine gendercide in any one decade than people were slaughtered in all the genocides of the 20th century.The equivalent of 5 jumbo jets worth of women die in labor each day... life time risk of maternal death is 1,000x higher in a poor country than in the west. That should be an international scandal."
Author: Nicholas D. Kristof
20. "The equivalent of five jumbo jets' worth of women die in labor each day, but the issue is almost never covered."

"In an essay titled A View From the Front Line, Jencks described her experience with cancer as like being woken up midflight on a jumbo jet and then thrown out with a parachute into a foreign landscape without a map:"There you are, the future patient, quietly progressing with other passengers toward a distant destination when, astonishingly (Why me?) a large hole opens in the floor next to you. People in white coats appear, help you into a parachute and — no time to think — out you go."You descend. You hit the ground....But where is the enemy? What is the enemy? What is it up to?...No road. No compass. No map. No training. Is there something you should know and don't?"The white coats are far, far away, strapping others into their parachutes. Occasionally they wave but, even if you ask them, they don't know the answers. They are up there in the Jumbo, involved with parachutes, not map-making."
Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee

Today's Quote

A megértés különbözteti meg a kurtizánt a szajhától. Minden egyes férfinak, aki belép az ajtómon, a borébe bújok. Ha ismerem a férfit, tudom, hogyan tegyek a kedvére. Tudom, hogyan irányítsam úgy, hogy megpróbálja megvásárolni a szerelmemet, és versenyezzen a többiekkel, akik ugyanezt szeretnék, de ne legyen rájuk féltékeny."
