"What about the Symmetry?!"

Nelson Goodman Quotes

"My title "The Fabrication of Facts," has the virtue not only of indicating pretty clearly what I am going to discuss but also of irritating those fundamentalists who know very well that facts are found not madder, that facts constitute the one and only real world, and that knowledge consists of believing the facts. These articles of faith so firmly possess most of us, they so bind and blind us, that "fabrication of fact" has a paradoxical sound. "Fabrication" has become a synonym for "falsehood" or "fiction" as contrasted with "truth" or "fact." Of course, we must distinguish falsehood and fiction from truth and fact; but we cannot, I am sure, do it on ground that fiction is fabricated and fact found. - 91"

Quotes About Charlotte Corday

"Curiously I was unmoved by my work. Unaffected by the act of murder, I had become entirely numb. I couldnt understand how such detachment was possible-- but I did some digging.What I discovered would have horrified me... if I was capable of being horrified. My augmentation had included the binding of my DNA to some of historys most notorious assassins. Are you not getting this? Ill say it in plain English--- I am the perfect killer in every sense of the word--- ---because--- ---I--- ---am--- ---every--- killer.Im the act of change possessed in a revolver. I am revolution packed into a suitcase bomb. I am ever Mark David Chapman and every Charlotte Corday. I am Luigi Lucheni slow-dancing with Balthasar to the tune of semi-automatics, while Gavrilo Princip masturbates in the corner with bath-tub napalm. I am all of them and so much more... because I am going to live forever." Number Five" - Author: Gerard Way

Quotes About Prayer For Family

"Eventually I took a square of white chocolate out of the box, and unwrapped it, and then I did something I had never done before. I put the chocolate in my mouth, letting it soften until the last possible moment, and then as I chewed it slowly, I prayed that Mr. Pirzadas family was safe and sound. I had never prayed for anything before, had never been taught or told to, but I decided, given the circumstances, that it was something I should do. That night when I went to the bathroom I only pretended to brush my teeth, for I feared that I would somehow rinse the prayer out as well. I wet the brush and rearranged the tube of paste to prevent my parents from asking any questions, and fell asleep with sugar on my tongue." - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri

Quotes About Equilibrium In Life

"Any game where the goal is to build territory has to be beautiful. There may be phases of combat, but they are only means to an end, to allow your territory to survive. One of the most extraordinary aspects of the game of go is that it has been proven that in order to win, you must live, but you must also allow the other player to live. Players who are too greedy will lose: it is a subtle game of equilibrium, where you have to get ahead without crushing the other player. In the end, life and death are only the consequences of how well or how poorly you have made your construction. This is what one of Taniguchis characters says: you live, you die, these are consequences. Its a proverb for playing go, and for life." - Author: Muriel Barbery

Quotes About Genesis Bible

"In the beginning (Yeah, Im quoting Genesis), God created man. God then recognized that it was not good for man to be alone. We can all agree on that one I think. No one likes being alone, its no fun – but what did He do about it? He created marriage. He didnt create dating, He didnt create courting – He created marriage. So where did dating come from? Well, not The Bible." - Author: Cole Ryan
