[Connection" Is The Triumphal Cry These Days. Connection Has Made People Arrogant, Impatient, Hasty, And Presumptuous. ...I Don't Doubt That Instant Communication Has Been Good For Business, Even For The Publishing Business, But It Has Done Nothing For Literature, And Might Even Have Harmed It. In Many Ways Connection Has Been Disastrous. We Have Confused Information (of Which There Is Too Much) With Ideas (of Which There Are Too Few). I Found Out Much More About The World And Myself By Being Unconnected.]

Betty Cross Quotes

"Now I now understand what I was fightin for, Zel. I was fightin for a world where Im free to try some things out, and find out what I really want. Im fightin for a world where people can be honest with each other. That even includes the people who cant be honest with others. People like me."

Quotes About Speech Delivery

"Written things are not for speech; their form is literary; they are stiff, inflexible, and will not lend themselves to happy and effective delivery with the tongue--where their purpose is to merely entertain, not instruct; they have to be limbered up, broken up, colloquialized and turned into common forms of premeditated talk--otherwise they will bore the house and not entertain it." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Mrs Reed

"Much of America is now in need of an equivalent of Mrs. Thatchers privatization program in 1980s Britain, or post-Soviet Eastern Europes economic liberalization in the early Nineties. Its hard to close down government bodies, but it should be possible to sell them off. And a side benefit to outsourcing the Bureau of Government Agencies and the Agency of Government Bureaus is that youd also be privatizing public-sector unions, which are the biggest and most direct assault on freedom, civic integrity, and fiscal solvency." - Author: Mark Steyn

Quotes About Mans Creation

"Life is unlikely to end with humans, even if we burn in a nuclear holocaust. The relentless wheel of evolution will pick up from where we leave off and roll to its predestined goal. If the human mind continues to evolve, enlarge, and expand, so that we are able to recognize our kinship with the creations around us, so that we are able to grasp our oneness with the cosmos, and so that we merge in yoga with the Divine, the long cosmic cycle will disclose its cryptic secret, and the long saga of billions of years of evolution will display its profound significance." - Author: Roy J. Mathew

Quotes About Working In Groups

"A survey of 348 male managers at twenty Fortune 500 companies found that fathers from dual-career families put in an average of two fewer hours per week – or about 4 percent less – than men whose wives were at home. That was the only difference between the two groups of men. But the fathers with working wives, who presumably had a few more domestic responsibilities, earned almost 20 percent less." - Author: Ann Crittenden
