Sten F Odenwald Quotes

"Quantum fluctuations are, at their root, completely a-causal, in the sense that cause and effect and ordering of events in time is not a part of how these fluctuations work. Because of this, there seem not to be any correlations built into these kinds of fluctuations because law as we understand the term requires some kind of cause-and-effect structure to pre-exist. Quantum fluctuations can precede physical law, but it seems that the converse is not true. So in the big bang, the establishment of law came after the event itself, but of course even the concept of time and causality may not have been quite the same back then as they are now."

Quotes About Monday

"How hard it is, to be forced to the conclusion that people should be, nine tenths of the time, left alone! - When there is that in me that longs for absolute commitment. One of the poem-ideas I had was that one could respect only the people who knew that cups had to be washed up and put away after drinking, and knew that a Monday of work follows a Sunday in the water meadows, and that old age with its distorting-mirror memories follows youth and its raw pleasures, but that its quite impossible to love such people, for what we want in love is release from our beliefs, not confirmation in them. That is where the courage of love comes in - to have the courage to commit yourself to something you dont believe, because it is what - for the moment, anyway - thrills your by its audacity. (Some of the phrasing of this is odd, but it would make a good poem if it had any words...)" - Author: Philip Larkin

Quotes About Dead Actors

"We know the original relation of the theater and the cult of the Dead: the first actors separated themselves from the community by playing the role of the Dead: to make oneself up was to designate oneself as a body simultaneously living and dead: the whitened bust of the totemic theater, the man with the painted face in the Chinese theater, the rice-paste makeup of the Indian Katha-Kali, the Japanese No mask ... Now it is this same relation which I find in the Photograph; however lifelike we strive to make it (and this frenzy to be lifelike can only be our mythic denial of an apprehension of death), Photography is a kind of primitive theater, a kind of Tableau Vivant, a figuration of the motionless and made-up face beneath which we see the dead." - Author: Roland Barthes

Quotes About Accept Me As I Am

"I dont accept the currently fashionable assertion that any view is automatically as worthy of respect as any equal and opposite view. My view is that the moon is made of rock. If someone says to me "Well, you havent been there, have you? You havent seen it for yourself, so my view that it is made of Norwegian Beaver Cheese is equally valid" - then I cant even be bothered to argue. There is such a thing as the burden of proof, and in the case of god, as in the case of the composition of the moon, this has shifted radically. God used to be the best explanation wed got, and weve now got vastly better ones. God is no longer an explanation of anything, but has instead become something that would itself need an insurmountable amount of explaining. So I dont think that being convinced that there is no god is as irrational or arrogant a point of view as belief that there is. I dont think the matter calls for even-handedness at all." - Author: Douglas Adams

Quotes About The Name Amy

"A bronze plaque read: GAIUS PLINIUS CAECILIUS SECUNDUSDan made a face. "Get a load of the guy with the funny name.""I think thats Pliny the younger, the famous Roman writer," Amy supplied.

Its one of the earliest eyewitness accounts of a major disaster."Dan yawned. "Doesnt this remind you of the clue hunt? You know–you telling me a bunch of boring stuff, and me not listening?" - Author: Gordon Korman
