Ken Robinson Quotes

"I asked a professor of nanotechnology what they use to measure the unthinkable small distances of nanospace? He said it was the nanometre. This didnt help me very much. A nanometre is a billionth of a metre. I understood the idea but couldnt visualise what it meant. I said, "What is it roughly?" He thought for a moment and said, "A nanometre is roughly the distance that a mans beard grows in one second". I had never thought about what beards do in a second but they must do something. It takes them all day to grow about a milllimetre. They dont leap out of your face at eight oclock in the morning. Beards are slow, languid things and our language reflects this. We do not say "as quick as a beard" or "as fast as a bristle". We now have a way of grasping of how slow they are - about a nanometre a second."

Quotes About Roman Catholic Church

"Martin Luther called the church building the "Mundhaus" (lit. "mouth house" or "speech house") because he believed that the Graeco-Roman "pagan lecture" of the sophist entertainers who took over the Catholic church should be the focus of "the service". Sermons might have been helpful in the later Middle Ages when even many Catholic priests couldnt read. However, modern research has repeatedly proven that lecturing is the worst possible way to educate others because its so boring. Might traditional, so-called-inspired preaching still be the best way to communicate Gods Word?" ~ © gfp 42™" - Author: Gary Patton

Quotes About You Not Caring

"He stepped close to her; she could feel his breath on her neck. "Eve, you make me not want to die."She turned to see his face. "I didnt want to be this, and now its all I am."He put his hands on her cheeks. The look on his face did her in. He was kind, caring, and mourning her losses. Tears wet his cheeks. Eve felt a very deep sob choke her. If he was mourning, so could she.He pulled her into his arms. "Cry. Its okay. Cry."Eve felt her knees give. He caught her and carried her to his couch. He petted her hair and let her empty her pain and guilt onto his chest. He kissed the top of her head. For the first time, his actions toward her seemed to have no sexual intent whatsoever.Eve let go of a rope shed clung to for too long. And she fell. She fell right into him. Wrong or right, she gave up judging. Her lips found his, and he kissed her gently, not demanding any more than she was willing to offer." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About What You Think You Know

"My point is this — you dont know. When I was first here, people looked at my hair, noticed apples on my tray, and thought hippie. Then, from hippie they thought druggie. From there it went to will get me in trouble and not worth my time, and then they stopped thinking at all. No one bothered to find out if what they thought about me was true. No one wanted to hear what I thought. No one cared what I believed in. No one cared about talking to me or asking what my plans were for the day or night. And then came you. Dont let what you think you know make him into what I could have been. Dont become someone who doesnt think, just because you dont like him for some reason. Because, quite frankly, I like how you think. Except for now, of course." - Author: Rebecca McKinsey
