Ray Attiyah Quotes

"Without growth, organizations struggle to add talented people. Without talented people, organizations struggle to grow."

Pyotr Kropotkin Quotes

"We hold further that Communism is not only desirable, but that existing societies, founded on Individualism, are inevitably impelled in the direction of Communism. The development of Individualism during the last three centuries is explained by the efforts of the individual to protect himself from the tyranny of Capital and of the State. For a time he imagined, and those who expressed his thought for him declared, that he could free himself entirely from the State and from society. "By means of money," he said, "I can buy all that I need." But the individual was on a wrong tack, and modern history has taught him to recognize that, without the help of all, he can do nothing, although his strong-boxes are full of gold."

HC Nicholas Quotes

"Plainly it is not every error made by a witness which affects his credibility. In each case the trier of fact has to make an evaluation; taking into account such matters as the nature of the contradictions, their number and importance, and their bearing on other parts of the witnesss evidence."

Jan Krause Greene Quotes

"Life on earth can never be fully understood. Life and all it holds is too big for humans to understand. There is the possibility for more joy than they ever comprehend and there is the same possibility of pain and suffering. Humans have embraced pain and sorrow much more fully than they have embraced joy. This why the world suffers."

Quotes About Bold Moves

"Her hands continued their burning climb up my arm and onto my chest. Bold moves for her. Echos breasts rose and fell at a faster rate. "I want to stay with you tonight." "Are you sure?" "Yes." Tender hands move into my hair, guiding my head to hers. I inhaled her delicious, warm scent: cinnamon rolls, straight out of the oven. The first taste of her lips didnt disappoint. Sweet sugar teased my tongue, heightening my awareness of the gift Echo offered to me. This girl owned my soul and stole my heart.

Quotes About Recursion

"Evolution has no foresight. Complex machinery develops its own agendas. Brains — cheat. Feedback loops evolve to promote stable heartbeats and then stumble upon the temptation of rhythm and music. The rush evoked by fractal imagery, the algorithms used for habitat selection, metastasize into art. Thrills that once had to be earned in increments of fitness can now be had from pointless introspection. Aesthetics rise unbidden from a trillion dopamine receptors, and the system moves beyond modeling the organism. It begins to model the very process of modeling. It consumes evermore computational resources, bogs itself down with endless recursion and irrelevant simulations. Like the parasitic DNA that accretes in every natural genome, it persists and proliferates and produces nothing but itself. Metaprocesses bloom like cancer, and awaken, and call themselves I." - Author: Peter Watts

Quotes About Ospreys

"From his bedroom window on the Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Nathaniel Dixon watched in awe at the four-ship formation of V-22 Ospreys chewing up the Virginia air with their massive, wingtip-mounted tilt rotors as they made a pass over the flight line. The aircraft grew in his window as they approached the small bungalow he lived in with his mother and father on base. Just before they flew out of sight, Nathaniel clapped his hands together over the window and imagined smashing each Osprey like a dragonfly. Then, he imagined each falling to earth in flames, smashing in a great ball of fire in his backyard." - Author: Jonathan Marker

Quotes About Dove Bird

"As were leaving the Kings Arms Hotel after Sunday lunch, I watch a beautiful white dove walking down the wet road. A car approaches and the bird accidentally turns into the wheel rather than away from it. A gentle crunch. The car passes. A shape like a discarded napkin left in the road. Still perfectly white, no red stains, but bearing no relation anymore to the shape of a bird. A trail of white feathers flutter down the road after the car. The suddeness is very upsetting. That gentle crunch." - Author: Antony Sher

Quotes About Jlo

"Am încercat într-o mare tăcere şi într-o mare singurătate, în mijlocul naturii, departe deoameni şi aproape de mine, o senzaţie de tumult nesfîrşit, în care lumea, ca un torentirezistibil, m-a năpădit, a trecut prin mine asemenea unui fluid transparent şi insesizabil.Închizînd ochii, întreaga lume pare că s-a topit în creierul meu, prin care ea trece într-unelan torenţial, de un farmec indefinibil şi de un avînt impetuos, curgînd apoi din mine înforme şi înălţări de valuri, ca în visurile de înec de o groază voluptuoasă. Am simţit atuncinu numai cum un om poate trăi, în anumite clipe, toată esenţa misterioasă a destinului uman,dar şi cum în el se poate concentra universalitatea lumii, absorbită în extazurile singurătăţii." - Author: Emil Cioran

Quotes About Gavrilo

"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
