Quotes About Using Correct Grammar

"I had a real revelation. We were all in robes, and they made some Turkish coffee for us. The professor explained how the coffee was made very different from anywhere else, and I realized, So fucking what? Which kids even in Turkey give a shit about Turkish coffee? All day I had looked at young people in Istanbul. They were all drinking what every other kind in the world drinks, and they were wearing clothes that look like they were bought at the Gap, and they are all using cell phones. They were like kids everywhere else. It hit me that, for young people, this whole world is the same now. When were making products, there is no such thing as a Turkish phone, or a music player that young people in Turkey would want thats different from one young people elsewhere would want. Were just one world now." - Author: Walter Isaacson

Quotes About Being Alive Again

"Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.

Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment - an attitude that has never again left me.- Albert Einstein, Autobiographical Notes, edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp" - Author: Albert Einstein
