Catherynne M Valente Quotes

"Because Im a cat. A big one, the Panther of Rough Storms, in fact. But still a cat. If theres a saucer of milk to spill, Id rather spill it than let it lie. If my mistress grows absent-minded and leaves a ball of yarn about, Ill bat it between my paws, and unravel it. Because its fun. Because its what cats do best."

Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes

"[The] persevering steadiness of my mother, her belief in seeing things through, and her great ability to love and learn, listen and change, helped keep me alive through all the years of pain and nightmare that were to come. She could not have known how difficult it would be to deal with madness; had no preparation for what to do with madness--none of us did--but consistent with her ability to love, and her native will, she handled it with empathy and intelligence. It never occurred to her to give up."

Denny A Quotes

Eric Bredesen Quotes

"Light — i.e. space — is the structure of time, the essence of existence. The stuff of physics does not involve time. Orthodox contemporary physics sadly refers to this fact as "the problem of time."

Kate Douglas Wiggin Quotes

"Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World,With the wonderful water round you curled,And the wonderful grass upon your breast,World, you are beautifully drest!"

Matt Dillahunty Quotes

"Either god exists or it doesnt exist. If a god does exist, it either interacts with the universe in some detectable way or it doesnt. If it doesnt, that god is indistinguishable from a non-existent god. That only leaves a god who interacts with the universe in some detectable way. But if science, which is the greatest realization of the use of our senses to, you know, detect things, hasnt found this god, that doesnt say much for individuals.In short, the god youve created is, in fact, undetectable by science. The limits of science are not the province of religious knowledge. Where science is ignorant, so is religion. The only difference is that religion lacks the integrity of science."

Leonard Bernstein Quotes

"Im no longer quite sure what the question is, but I do know that the answer is Yes."

Quotes About Alife

"For instance, supposing that the planet earth were not a sphere but a gigantic coffee table,how much difference in everyday life would that make? Granted, this is a prettyfarfetched example; you cant rearrange facts of life so freely. Still, picturing the planetearth, for convenience sake, as a gigantic coffee table does in fact help clear away theclutter—those practically pointless contingencies such as gravity and the internationaldateline and the equator, those nagging details that arise from the spherical view. I mean,for a guy leading a perfectly ordinary existence, how many times in the course of alifetime would the equator be a significant factor?" - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Insignificance Of Life

"How good is it to remember ones insignificance: that of a man among billions of men, of an animal amid billions of animals; and ones abode, the earth, a little grain of sand in comparison with Sirius and others, and ones life span in comparison with billions on billions of ages. There is only one significance, you are a worker. The assignment is inscribed in your reason and heart and expressed clearly and comprehensibly by the best among the beings similar to you. The reward for doing the assignment is immediately within you. But what the significance of the assignment is or of its completion, that you are not given to know, nor do you need to know it. It is good enough as it is. What else could you desire?" - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Swastikas

"Why does she always seem to think you drive like were holding up a bank?"Roswell grinned and rolled his eyes, "Because thats what teenagers do, right? They also carve swastikas into their arms, steal prescription drugs from old people, and freebase cocaine. I need to institute a policy where she stops watching 60 Minutes and pretty much all public service announcements." - Author: Brenna Yovanoff

Quotes About Elevator Music

Quotes About Years Of Experience

"Buffetts methodology was straightforward, and in that sense simple. It was not simple in the sense of being easy to execute. Valuing companies such as Coca-Cola took a wisdom forged by years of experience; even then, there was a highly subjective element. A Berkshire stockholder once complained that there were no more franchises like Coca-Cola left. Munger tartly rebuked him. Why should it be easy to do something that, if done well two or three times, will make your family rich for life?" - Author: Roger Lowenstein
