Kathy Kenney Marshall Quotes

"InsomniaI cannot get to sleep tonight.I toss and turn and flop.I try to count some fluffy sheepwhile oer a fence they hop.I try to think of pleasant dreamsof places really cool.I dont know why I cannot sleep -I slept just fine at school."

Alison Fell Quotes

"Hairspray and blusher, eyelash curlers, eye-shadow palettes the size of tea-trays. Even before they left school it was as if they were already rehearsing for some witless kind of womanhood."

E Fermi Quotes

"Some recent work by E. Fermi and L. Szilárd, which has been communicated to me in manuscript, leads me to expect that the element uranium may be turned into a new and important source of energy in the immediate future. Certain aspects of the situation seem to call for watchfulness and, if necessary, quick action on the part of the Administration. ...This new phenomenon would also lead to the construction of bombs, and it is conceivable—though much less certain—that extremely powerful bombs of a new type may thus be constructed. A single bomb of this type, carried by boat or exploded in a port, might well destroy the whole port altogether with some of the surrounding territory. However, such bombs might well prove to be too heavy for transportation by air."

Rainbow Rowell Quotes

"Sometimes she wondered if the shape of his eyes affected how he saw things. That was probably the most racist question of all time."

Camille Flammarion Quotes

"Men... have had the vanity to pretend that the world creation was made for them, whilst in reality the whole creation does not suspect their existence."

Nathanael Richmond Quotes

"Missing someone and not being able to see them is the worst feeling ever."

Anders Nilsen Quotes

"We are sorry about the way things turned out. We gave, in the phrasing of our words if not literally in the words themselves, the false impression that these pages might hold some small fragment, some slight fragrance of a greater truth. That there might be something here to be learned. Before we go any further the author of this cartoon wishes to make an apology. Such an impression was deliberately cultivated. It is a ruse. It is a lie. We are every bit as lost and afraid as children abandoned in a wood: every bit as lost as you."

His Highness The Aga Khan Quotes

"For too long some of our schools have taught too many subjects as subsets of dogmatic commitments...Too often, education made our students less flexible- confident to the point of arrogance that they now had all the answers- rather than more flexible- humble in their lifelong openness to new questions and new responses. An important goal of quality education is to equip each generation to participate effectively in what has been called the great conversation of our times. This means, on one hand, being unafraid of controversy. But, on the other hand, it also means being sensitive to the values and outlooks of others."

J A Jance Quotes

"I play golf - badly."

Gianluca Frangella Quotes

"– Io non potrò mai darti quel genere di sensazioni, mi dispiace.– Ed io non le voglio … perché ho capito che è facile innamorarsi di un mito. Chi non sinnamorerebbe di un attore bello e famoso? Chi rifiuterebbe unattrice bella e famosa? Chi non resterebbe senza parole se qualcuno che ha carisma, ed è amato da tutti, decidesse di dargli attenzione?– Chi sa amarsi per quello che è e non per quello che vorrebbe essere."

Quotes About Zero Waste

"Commerce is considered by classical economists to be a positive-sumgame. The act of selling and buying always benefits both the sellerand the buyer. It is unfortunate that popular culture has propagatedthe Marxist myth that one person gains in business at the expense ofanother, that capitalism is evil because it is a zero-sum game—somebodywins while someone else loses. When liberals make the argumentthat capitalism is the cause of all of our problems, they are eitherspeaking out of abject ignorance or being totally disingenuous toprotect their interests. We have not had true free-market capitalismin this country on any wide scale. Where we have had economicsuccesses in this nations history, it has been those times when peoplehave done something outside of the governments involvement. Everytime the federal government has been involved, it has created chaos,waste, and corruption." - Author: Ziad K. Abdelnour

Quotes About Growth And Time

"Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to a ceremony celebrating Blake Hartt and Livia McHugh. Today is not the start of their lives together. It will mark the day we all stood, clapped, and gave good wishes. But their fates were destined for each other long before they even met. True love, the kind that lasts forever, is very rare indeed. It takes compromise, continued growth, and trust."Cole paused to look from Blake to Livia and back again. "Livia and Blake have a head start on all those things," he continued. "Time has tested them already, asking a fresh love to face terrifying and life-changing tasks. These two had to find and hold onto their love, even when it felt like all was lost." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About Teologi

"Kesamaran yang jelas terdapat berkaitan perhubungan yaqin dan zann pada tahap ilmu manusia, walaupun jika ia berdasarkan sumber Ilahi, sepatutnya dilayani dan dihargai sebagai satu keresahan positif. Di sebelah pihak iaitu, pihak yang berkeyakinan, menekankan kemungkinan keputusan-keputusan yang dibuat oleh manusia dan mengelakkan keraguan yang tekal dan buruk padahnya amatlah penting. Pada pihak yang lain pula, aspek keraguan akan keresahan itu mesti sentiasa diingati demi mencegah kefanatikan dan kesombongan yang melampau sama ada berbentuk teologis, saintifik atau sejarah, yang telah mengakibatkan banyak penderitaan manusia, di samping menggalakkan penyelidikan lanjut dalam semangat ijtihad dan shura. Sikap ini akan menggalakkan kerjasama dan akan memajukan perkembangan sains, kemanusiaan dan tamadun bukan sahaja di kalangan orang Islam, tetapi seluruh kemanusiaan." - Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud

Quotes About Heading To College

"How dare you touch my cookies, you bastard!" Jason said in utter disgust before popping the cookie into his mouth and heading back to his house. "Damn those looked good, too," Brad grumbled. Haley sighed. "Dont worry I have a second plate on my counter." The words were barely out of her mouth when Jason abruptly changed course and headed towards her house. "Well, there was," she said, watching Jason walk into her house like he owned it. A minute later he walked out of her house, carrying both plates and the gallon of milk she had in her fridge. He headed back to his house, but not before he glared at Brad. "You cookie thieving bastard," they heard him mutter. Brad rolled his eyes, chuckling. "And people wonder how I lost weight rooming with him in college." - Author: R.L. Mathewson
