Nicole Green Quotes

"Its so good to be loved by someone who knows how to live with the flaws. Who knows not to expect the world from you and how to be grateful for what you can give. And who knows that, like the people who give it, love is not perfect."

Pierre Louis Moreau De Maupertuis Quotes

"Might one not say that in the chance combination of natures production, since only those endowed with certain relations of suitability could survive, it is no cause for wonder that this suitability is found in all species that exist today? Chance, one might say, produced an innumerable multitude of individuals; a small number turned out to be constructed in such fashion that the parts of the animal could satisfy its needs; in another, infinitely greater number, there was neither suitability nor order: all of the later have perished; animals without a mouth could not live, others lacking organs for reproduction could not perpetuate themselves: the only ones to have remained are those in which were found order and suitability; and these species, which we see today, are only the smallest part of what blind fate produced."

Deirdre McCloskey Quotes

"One suspects that the conservatives of left and right dont much like the "mass" and its badly informed preferences. Let us take care of you, they cry.

(The ruling lords and the monopolists view the clerisys conservative theorizing with delight, resting assured that the elders and the planners will inadvertently shield their rents.)"

Quotes About Ostentation

"There, I said to myself, are the reasons for the silence and darkness that surround the library: it is the preserve of learning but can maintain this learning unsullied only if it prevents its reaching anyone at all, even the monks themselves. Learning is not like a coin, which remains whole even through the most infamous transactions; it is, rather, like a very handsome dress, which is worn out through use and ostentation. Is not a book like that, in fact?" - Author: Umberto Eco

Quotes About Dummies

"Do I have to do everything myself?" The cry was a soul-freezing mixture of rage and torment. "Aint there no one to stop asking questions and just do my bidding? By God, Ill kill and kill and kill and kill and never stop killing if people dont do what I say. Ill beat you dummies till the blood runs out of your eyes. Ill tie every man on this godforsaken island to a tree and hell bark like a dog for me to throw him a bone." - Author: Walter Kaylin

Quotes About Pursue Dream

"The very first role I ever played was as a 17-year old South African girl who dreamed of being a star and left home to meet her mother in the big city so that she could pursue that dream.

Quotes About Progressive Thinking

"Black progressives suffered major disillusionment with white progressives when our experiences of working with them revealed that they could want to be with us (even to be our sexual partners) without divesting of white supremacist thinking about blackness.

Quotes About Oeuvres

"Terre en vacance doeuvres dart. Je méprise ceux qui ne savent reconnaître la beauté que transcrite déjà et toute interprétée. Le peuple arabe a ceci dadmirable que, son art, il le vit, il le chante et le dissipe au jour le jour; il ne le fixe point et ne lembaume en aucune oeuvre. Cest la cause et leffet de labsence de grands artistes. Jai toujours cru les grands artistes ceux qui osent donner droit de beauté à des choses si naturelles quelles font dire après à qui les voit : Comment navais-je pas compris jusqualors que cela était aussi beau?..." - Author: André Gide
