[As For Pictures And Museums, That Don't Trouble Me. The Worst Of Going Abroad Is That You've Always Got To Look At Things Of That Sort. To Have To Do It At Home Would Be Beyond A Joke.]

"When power narrows the areas of a mans concerns, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence"

Pascal Picq Quotes

"Primele încercări de predare a unei limbi, mă refer la engleză, cimpanzeilor datează abia din secolul XX. Toate au dat greş, inclusiv una dintre cele mai cunoscute, făcută pe la sfârşitul anilor 40 de o familie de cercetători americani, Hayes, care au crescut un cimpanzeu, pe Vicky, ca pe copilul lor. Degeaba. După luni şi luni de învăţare, Vicky bolborosea vag patru cuvinte: tata, mama, pahar, sus. «Tată, mamă, să ridicăm un pahar». Sigur, fraza e foarte utilă la aniversări, dar cam atât."

Cheryl Hersha Quotes

"The programme into which Cheryl was inducted combined all the different ways the intelligence community had learned could cause intense psychological change in adults and children. It had been learned through the use of both knowledgeable and unwitting volunteers. They were subjected to sensory overload, isolation, drugs and hypnosis, all used on bodies that had been weakened from mild hunger. The horror of the programme was that it would be like having an elementary school sex education class conducted by a paedophile rapist. It would have been banned had the American government signed the Helsinki Accords. But, of course, they hadnt. For the test that day and in those that followed, Cheryl Hersha was positioned so she faced a portable movie screen. A 16mm movie projector was on a platform, along with several reels of film. Each was a short pornographic film meant to make her aware of sexuality in a variety of forms..."

Barbara Hambly Quotes

"The music had ceased. Alex walked over to the gramophone, wound it up again, and put on more blues, a woman singing this time, gay and sad at once, like a stranded angel who had traded holiness for humanity but remembered what it used to be like to know God."

Shannon Lyndsy Quotes

"You wanna know why the world is f**ked? This is why, this is exactly why…right here. Get a pen, write this down, this is important…The world is f**ked up because I eat WonderBread preserved with formaldehyde that lasts three weeks and will never grow mold as long as its kept in its magic silver bag. The world is f**ked up because I know my cans of tuna have mercury in it. The world is f**ked up because I know my flake light tuna and WonderBread are poisonous, yet I still eat them!"

David Timms Quotes

"Our vision of the heavenly realm...can sustain us through the most difficult of days and circumstances. It births hope amidst hardship and nurtures faith amidst opposition."

"[L]uxury always comes at someone elses expense. One of the many advantages of civilization is that one doesnt generally have to see that, if one doesnt wish. Youre free to enjoy its benefits without troubling your conscience. (Ancillary Justice)"

Quotes About Unreliability

"It is not history. But I am beginning to wonder strongly what is the nature of history. Is it only memory in decent sentences, and if so, how reliable is it? I would suggest, not very. And that therefore most truth and fact offered by these syntactical means is treacherous and unreliable. And yet I recognise that we live our lives, and even keep our sanity, by the lights of this treachery and this unreliability, just as we build our love of country on these paper worlds of misapprehension and untruth. Perhaps this is our nature, and perhaps unaccountably it is part of our glory as a creature, that we can build our best and most permanent buildings on foundations of utter dust." - Author: Sebastian Barry

Quotes About Bubbles And Love

"A hidden mussel was blowing bubbles like a spring through the sand where his boot was teasing the water. It was the little pulse of bubbles and not himself or herself that was the moment for her then; and he could have already departed and she could have already wept, and it would have been the same, as she stared at the little fountain rising so gently out of the shimmering sand. A clear love is in the world - this came to her as insistently as the mussels bubbles through the water. There it was, existing there where they came and were beside it now. It is in the bubble in the water in the river, and it has its own changing and its mysteries of days and nights, and it does not care how we come and go." - Author: Eudora Welty

Quotes About Jet Life

"The Jetsons had them in the 1960s. They were the defining element of Knight Rider in the 1980s: cars that drive themselves. Self-driving cars appear in countless science fiction movies. By Hollywood standards, they are so normal we dont even notice them. But in real life, they still dont exist. What if you could buy one today?" - Author: Sebastian Thrun

Quotes About Loving That Special Person

"Please dont think so lightly of liking someone. Its terribly important. It is a kind of loving, you know, and one that frequently lasts a lot longer than romance. You can fall out of love, as well in. Most of us do, especially if you dont actually like the person as well. It doesnt always grow into love by any means, but sometimes it does." - Author: Anne Perry

Quotes About Moan

"Mrs. Dale was a good woman, Hollis will grant her that. A busybody and a pain in the neck, but she never judged what she didnt understand and that Hollis knows, is rare. Unlike Alan and the boys in the village, she treated him fairly, but that doesnt mean he has to moan and bellyache down at the funeral parlor. Ashes to ashes, thats all there is. If you cant change a fact of life, then be smart enough to walk away from it." - Author: Alice Hoffman

Quotes About Mothers And Their Sons

"Some mothers seem to have the capacity and energy to make their childrens clothes, bake, give piano lessons, go to Relief Society, teach Sunday School, attend parent-teacher association meetings, and so on. Other mothers look upon such women as models and feel inadequate, depressed, and think they are failures when they make comparisons... Sisters, do not allow yourselves to be made to feel inadequate or frustrated because you cannot do everything others seem to be accomplishing. Rather, each should assess her own situation, her own energy, and her own talents, and then choose the best way to mold her family into a team, a unit that works together and supports each other. Only you and your Father in Heaven know your needs, strengths, and desires. Around this knowledge your personal course must be charted and your choices made." - Author: Marvin J. Ashton
