"Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era - its a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good."

Anya Seton Quotes

"Elizabeth squirmed on the hard wooden bench, and tried to ignore both her sore backside and her rumbling stomach. Why did the ministers sermons last so long? And why did the talk of sin always give her such a hearty appetite?"

Patrick McGuinness Quotes

"In diplomacy there are two kinds of problems: small ones and large ones. The small ones will go away by themselves and the large ones you will not be able to do anything about. The biggest challenges in your career will come from the temptation to act. The test of your mettle will be how nobly you surmount it."

Brendan McGinley Quotes

"(K)ids are savages who havent learned to lie to themselves yet, and they dont flinch from the truth."

"I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within."

Bede Griffiths Quotes

"I was suddenly made aware of another world of beauty and mystery such as I had never imagined to exist, except in poetry. It was as though I had begun to see and smell and hear for the first time. The world appeared to me as Wordsworth describes with "the glory and freshness of a dream." The sight of a wild rosegrowing on a hedge, the scent of lime-tree blossoms caught suddenly as I rode down a hill on a bicycle, came to me like visitations from another world. But it was not only my sensesthat were awakened. I experienced an overwhelming emotionin the presence of nature, especially at evening. It began to have a kind of sacramental character for me. I approached it with a sense of almost religious awe and , in a hush that comes before sunset, I felt again the presence of an almost unfathomable mystery. The song of the birds, the shape of the trees, the colors of the sunset, were so many signs of the presence, which seemed to be drawing me to itself."

Quotes About Shallow Thinking

"Death seems to be a long way off. Is this not shallow thinking? It is worthless and is only a joke within a dream. It will not do to think in such a way and be negligent. Insofar as death is always at ones door, one should make sufficient effort and act quickly." - Author: Yamamoto Tsunetomo

Quotes About Corroborate

"For his part, Mendeleev scanned Lecoq de Boisbaudrans data on gallium and told the experimentalist, with no justification, that he must have measured something wrong, because the density and weight of gallium differed from Mendeleevs predictions. This betrays a flabbergasting amount of gall, but as science philosopher-historian Eric Scerri put it, Mendeleev always "was willing to bend nature to fit his grand philosophical scheme." The only difference between Mendeleev and crackpottery is that Mendeleev was right: Lecoq de Boisbaudran soon retracted his data and published results that corroborated Mendeleevs predictions." - Author: Sam Kean

Quotes About Bothered Mind

"Whenever an occasion arose in which she needed an opinion on something in the wider world, she borrowed her husbands. If this had been all there was to her, she wouldnt have bothered anyone, but as is so often the case with such women, she suffered from an incurable case of of pretentiousness. Lacking any internalized values of her own, such people can arrive at a standpoint only by adopting other peoples standards or views. The only principle that governs their minds is the question "How do I look?" - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Unpredictability

"The possible redemption from the predicament of irreversibility──of being unable to undo what one has done──is the faculty of forgiving. The remedy for unpredictability, for the chaotic uncertainty of the future, is contained in the faculty to make and keep promises. Both faculties depend upon plurality, on the presence and acting of others, for no man can forgive himself and no one can be bound by a promise made only to himself." - Author: Hannah Arendt

Quotes About Narava

"Čutim, da je lahko človek srečen na tem svetu. In vem, da je ta svet svet domišljije in vizije. Vsaka stvar, ki jo naslikam, je od tega sveta, vendar je vsi ljudje ne vidijo tako. Skopuhovim očem je zlatnik veliko lepši od sončne oble in mošnja, vsa zlizana od denarja, veliko lepše oblikovana kakor vinska trta, ki se šibi pod grozdi. Drevo, ki v oči nekoga zvabi solze sreče, je v očeh nekoga drugega samo nekakšna zelena stvar, ki stoji ob poti. Nekateri vidijo v naravi samo smešnost in in popačenost, a po teh se ne bom zgledoval; samo nekaj redkih ljudi je, ki zares vidijo naravo. Očem človeka z imaginacijo, je narava imaginacija sama. Kakršen je človek, tako tudi vidi. Kakor je oko ustvarjeno, takšna je njegova moč. Prav gotovo se motite, ko trdite, da fantazijske vizije niso od tega sveta. Meni je ves svet ena sama neskončna vizija fantazije ali domišljije…" - Author: William Blake
