Vladimir S Soloviev Quotes

"Suicides also involuntarily prove that life has a meaning, for their despair is due to the fact that life does not fulfill their arbitrary and contradictory demands. These demands could only be fulfilled if life were devoid of meaning; the non-fulfillment proves that life has a meaning which these persons, owing to their irrationality, do not wish to know (instances: Romeo, Cleopatra)."

Grant Bowler Quotes

Ronald A Fisher Quotes

"The value for which P=0.05, or 1 in 20, is 1.96 or nearly 2; it is convenient to take this point as a limit in judging whether a deviation ought to be considered significant or not. Deviations exceeding twice the standard deviation are thus formally regarded as significant. Using this criterion we should be led to follow up a false indication only once in 22 trials, even if the statistics were the only guide available. Small effects will still escape notice if the data are insufficiently numerous to bring them out, but no lowering of the standard of significance would meet this difficulty."

Laura Linney Quotes

"For me to have the opportunity to stay with one character for, God willing, a long period of time, is really exciting."

Viv Grigg Quotes

Quotes About Testimony

"Witness testimony is always flawed. Its better than circumstantial evidence, sure, but people arent camcorders; they dont record every action and reaction, and the very act of remembering involves chosing words, actions and images. In other words, any witness who was supposed to be giving a court facts is really just giving them a version of fiction." - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Simply Sitting

"As it happens, Im a terrible dancer. Bears are simply not made for dancing. Were much better at sitting and sleeping and singing. But there are humans who catch bears and force us to dance. Its agony. And there are other humans who pay to watch us.Hannah sighed. ‘I suppose youre right to distrust humans.‘And that is why I must eat you, said the bear forlornly. ‘For the benefit of the entire bear population of the world. Im awfully sorry about this.‘Thats all right. Hannah shrugged her shoulders. ‘Is there any point in my trying to run away?‘None. We bears may not be able to dance but we are experts when it comes to chasing things.‘What if I climb a tree?‘Ill climb up after you, or push the tree over. It all depends on what sort of tree you choose to climb. Either way, youll end up eaten.‘So be it, said Hannah. ‘How should I prepare myself?‘I beg your pardon?‘Will you eat me with my clothes on?‘Of course. Otherwise it would be bad manners." - Author: Doug MacLeod

Quotes About Cardiac

"The radiance of which he speaks is the scholastic quidditas, the whatness of a thing. The supreme quality is felt by the artist when the esthetic image is first conceived in his imagination. The mind in that mysterious instant Shelley likened beautifully to a fading coal. The instant wherein that supreme quality of beauty, the clear radiance of the esthetic image, is apprehended luminously by the mind which has been arrested by its wholeness and fascinated by its harmony is the luminous silent stasis of esthetic pleasure, a spiritual state very like to that cardiac condition which the Italian physiologist, Luigi Galvani, using a phrase almost as beautiful as Shelleys, called the enchantment of the heart." - Author: Shelley
