[A World In Which Time Is Absolute Is A World Of Consolation. For While The Movements Of People Are Unpredictable, The Movement Of Time Is Predictable. While People Can Be Doubted, Time Cannot Be Doubted. While People Brood, Time Skips Ahead Without Looking Back. In The Coffee Houses, In The Government Buildings, In Boats Of Lake Geneva, People Look At Their Watches And Take Refuge In Time. Each Person Knows That Somewhere Is Recorded The Moment She Was Born, The Moment She Took Her First Step, The Moment Of Her First Passion, The Moment She Said Goodbye To Her Parents.]

Quotes About Matrix Love

"Where do I come from?We are the children of the Great Explosion of Love that begot the whole Universe.

Quotes About Students Success

"One thing has not changed: to doubt the worth of minority students achievement when they succeed is really only to present another face of the prejudice that would deny them a chance to even try.
