Kelvin Quotes

"I came into the room, which was half dark, and presently spotted Lord Kelvin in the audience and realised that I was in for trouble at the last part of my speech dealing with the age of the earth, where my views conflicted with his. To my relief, Kelvin fell fast asleep, but as I came to the important point, I saw the old bird sit up, open an eye and cock a baleful glance at me! Then a sudden inspiration came, and I said Lord Kelvin had limited the age of the earth, provided no new source (of energy) was discovered. That prophetic utterance refers to what we are now considering tonight, radium! Behold! the old boy beamed upon me."

Davis Carlson Quotes

Quotes About Misunderstanding Love

"I was born to love - but none of you wanted to believe it, and that misunderstanding was crucial in forming my character. Its true that nature was strangely inconsistent in giving me a warm heart, but also a face that was like a stone mask and a tongue that was heavy and slow. She refused me what she bestowed freely on even the most loutish of my fellow men. . . . People judged my inner character by my outer covering, and like a sterile fruit, I withered under the rough husk I couldnt slough off." - Author: George Sand

Quotes About Harsh Winter

"On harsh, frigid January days, when the winds are relentless and the snow piles up around us, I often think of our small feathered friends back on the Third Line.

In the stark, white landscape they provided a welcome splash of colour and their songs gave us hope through the long, silent winter." - Author: Arlene Stafford Wilson

Quotes About Peeta And Gale

"Finally, Peeta turns to Pollux. "Well, then you just became our most valuable asset."

Peeta sounded like his old self, the one who could always think of the right thing to say when nobody else could... I glance back at him as he trudges along under his guards, Gale and Jackson, his eyes fixed on the ground, his shoulders hunched forward. So dispirited. But for a moment, he was really here." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About 1960s

"The Jetsons had them in the 1960s. They were the defining element of Knight Rider in the 1980s: cars that drive themselves. Self-driving cars appear in countless science fiction movies.
