[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.]

Lagrange Quotes

"When one day Lagrange took out of his pocket a paper which he read at the Académe, and which contained a demonstration of the famous Postulatum of Euclid, relative to the theory of parallels. This demonstration rested on an obvious paralogism, which appeared as such to everybody; and probably Lagrange also recognised it such during his lecture. For, when he had finished, he put the paper back in his pocket, and spoke no more of it. A moment of universal silence followed, and one passed immediately to other concerns."

Michelle Gagnon Quotes

"For most people, home we represented by four walls and a roof. Not for Noa. She preferred a motherboard to a mother, a keyboard to house keys. Nothing was more comforting than the hum of a spinning hard drive."

Quotes About Respect For Self And Others

"Above all, dont lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Constantly Thinking

"Im constantly thinking about design, shapes, patterns and colors, so I just want to be more of a blank canvas. But there is a comfort in knowing what youre going to wear, and that probably comes from Catholic school, where I wore a uniform for 10 years." - Author: Prabal Gurung

Quotes About Bible Scriptures

"We dont exhaust the Bible even after reading it hundreds of times. Each time we read it we see it in a new light. That is the greatness of the holy scriptures.

Quotes About Beric

"Und erzählen tat er, denn in seinen Adern floss der Wein des Berichtens, und der Himmel hatte gewollt, dass es seine Gewohnheit war, die Dinge der Welt zuerst sich selbst darzulegen, um sie zu verstehen, und danach den anderen kundzutun, in die Musik und das Licht der Literatur gekleidet, denn er erahnte, dass das Leben, wenn schon kein Traum, so doch zumindest eine Pantomime war, wo die grausame Ungereimtheit der Geschichte immer hinter den Kulissen floss, und zwischen Himmel und Erde gab es keine größere und wirksamere Rache, als die Schönheit und den Geist mit der Macht des Wortes zu meißeln, um hinter der Sinnlosigkeit der Dinge den Sinn zu finden." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About New Year Resolutions

"The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Realization

"The diversity of sounds rule my ever presence with their highs and blows, encompassing the totality of sensual experience. Im a child of the sirens of knowledge, a warrior for the truth in a world of washed perspectives and harsh realities. My voice cries the initial cry of the unborn into the perplexing illusion. I long for the realization of the human drama, the defeat of the dogs war, and the unity of existence. The beloved Gods of virtue have been undersold for the bleeding bread of empathy. I now awaist the triumphant roar of destiny, dressed in the inviting hand of a mother, perplexed by discovering, aroused by spirit. The door is open, the road transformed. The exit code to civilization is hacked beyond dispair, chased but the moon toward the freeing sun, on our journey to light. This is an open plea to the beautiful insanity of your hearts. It is time to consummate the kiss of oblivion into the obsidian of love!" - Author: Serj Tankian

Quotes About Pole

"To many people I have no doubt that it appears merely silly. I once found it expressed in a rather amusing way in a Russian Book called Dal Zoviet, which means the lure of far horizons. The author is Galinischev Kutuzoff [Golenischev-Kutuzov], and he tells of a man in Northern Mongolia who goes out of his yurt every morning to breathe the free air of the steppes and enjoy the immensity and the solitude. But one day he feels an uncomfortable sense of oppression, almost as if he could not breathe. He looks about to find the reason. And there, across the undulating grasslands, is a line of telegraph poles. And after the place never the same to him again." - Author: Daniele Varè

Quotes About Juiced

"All around, grown men were getting out of cars and shoving at each other like fifteen-year-olds, the bunch of juiced-up, armchair quarterbacks ready to peanut-gallery it up: The closest they were going to get to the octagon was standing on the outside of the chicken wire looking in." - Author: J.R. Ward

Quotes About Great Pretender

"Your father has done me a great service, planting that garden. I hope he is not fool enough to think he is its master.The words snake through my head, slow and inexorable, like oil spreading over water.If so, he will pay the price someday, for that garden already has a master. One who will allow no pretenders to the throne.There is a rap at the door.I startle. Am I losing my mind? Is the dark prince of my nightmares standing outside my cottage this instant?A charming thought, lovely. But I have no need of doors. All the locked gates in the world could not contain me. I enter when and where I wish. I hold the key to every poisoned heart." - Author: Maryrose Wood
