Christina Romer Quotes

"I think where I differ a little bit, we absolutely have to think about the deficit looking down the road. And certainly thats something the president has said that we need to, as the economy recovers, have a plan in place for getting it down."

Prem Prakash Quotes

"A yogi is much more disciplined in his speech. Yogic tradition has it that speech must pass before three barriers prior to being uttered aloud. These barriers come in the form of three questions: Is it kind? Is it true? Is it necessary? (112-113)"

Qaisar Iqbal Janjua Quotes

"I miss your fragrance, sometimes I miss it this much that I can clearly smell you in the air."

Lucian Boia Quotes

"Țăranii, în orice caz cei cu oarecare stare, nu aveau niciun motiv să se lase atrași de ideologia comunistă: doreau să-și rotunjească proprietățile, nicidecum să le piardă; țăranii săraci, pe de altă parte, erau și teribil de incluți, mulți dintre ei analfabeți, așa încât prea puțini aveau tentații ideologice, comuniste sau de orice altă natură. [...] Nici n-aveau un nivel intelectual de natură să contracareze impactul ideologic al comunismului; „învățătura" comunistă s-a așezat la ei pe un teren virgin. Au fost ușor captați de comunism. Li s-a oferit o promovare socială aproape instantanee la care nici n-ar fi visat. Au avut și satisfacția de a vedea cum în timp ce ei urcă, alții, care față de ei fuseseră până atunci atât de sus, coboară sau se prăbușesc (e și asta o delectare care ține de latura mai puțin lăudabilă a psihologiei umane). S-ar zice că egalitarismul comunist a fost pedeapsa primită de România pentru inegalitarismul anterior."

Myrtle Reed Quotes

"The hearts seasons seldom coincide with the calendar. Who among us has not been made desolate beyond all words upon some golden day when the little creatures of the air and meadow were life incarnate, from sheer joy of living? Who among us has not come home, singing, when the streets were almost impassable with snow, or met a friend with a happy, smiling face, in the midst of a pouring rain?"

Andrew Miller Quotes

"Why are there no handsome priest in Paris? One has no inclination to confess anything to an ugly man."

John Sloan Quotes

"Though a living cannot be made from art, art makes life worth living. It makes starving, living."

Alistair Cooke Quotes

"As always, the British especially shudder at the latest American vulgarity, and then they embrace it with enthusiasm two years later."

Marshall Nicholas Rosenbluth Quotes

"I studied calculus for the first time, which to me was an amazingly empowering experience which I could really see how you could understand all sorts of things, and I decided that chemistry and biology just had too much memory for me to be interested. Physics was very easy."

Quotes About Apples And Knowledge

"The range of the human mind, the scale and depth of the metaphors the mind is capable of manufacturing as it grapples with the universe, stand in stunning contrast to the belief that there is only one reality, which is mans, or worse, that only one culture among the many on earth possesses the truth.To allow mystery, which is to say to yourself, "There could be more, there could be things we dont understand," is not to damn knowledge. It is to take a wider view. It is to permit yourself an extraordinary freedom: someone else does not have to be wrong in order that you may be right." - Author: Barry López

Quotes About Striving For A Goal

"Ego-identification with things creates attachment to things, which in turn creates our consumer society and economic structures where the only measure of progress is always more. The unchecked striving for more, for endless growth, is a dysfunction and a disease. It is the same dysfunction the cancerous cell manifests, whose only goal is to multiply itself, unaware that it is bringing about its own destruction by destroying the organism of which it is a part. Some economists are so attached to the notion of growth that they cant let go of that word, so they refer to recession as a time of "negative growth"." - Author: Eckhart Tolle

Quotes About Codes

"Here is Menards own intimate forest: Now I am traversed by bridle paths, under the seal of sun and shade...I live in great density...Shelter lures me. I slump down into the thick foliage...In the forest, I am my entire self. Everything is possible in my heart just as it is in the hiding places in ravines. Thickly wooded distance separates me from moral codes and cities." - Author: Gaston Bachelard

Quotes About For Her

"In this world, time has three dimensions, like space. Just as an object may move in three perpendicular directions, corresponding to horizontal, vertical, and longitudinal, so an object may participate in three perpendicular futures. Each future moves in a different direction of time. Each future is real. At every point of decision, the world splits into three worlds, each with the same people, but different fates for those people. In time, there are an infinity of worlds." - Author: Alan Lightman
