Quotes About Number Pi

"The soul may not be destroyed. The soul goes on forever. Like the number pi, it is without cessation or conclusion. Like pi it is a constant. Pi is an irrational number, incapable of being made into a fraction, impossible to divide from itself. So, too, the soul is an irrational, indivisible equation that perfectly expresses one thing: you." - Author: Joe Hill

Quotes About Being Fully Present

"Though riches had charms, poverty had no terrors for an inexperiencedgirl like me. Indeed, to say the truth, there was something exhilaratingin the idea of being driven to straits, and thrown upon our own resources.I only wished papa, mamma, and Mary were all of the samemind as myself; and then, instead of lamenting past calamities we mightall cheerfully set to work to remedy them; and the greater the difficulties,the harder our present privations, the greater should be our cheerfulness to endure the latter, and our vigour to contend against the former." - Author: Anne Brontë

Quotes About The Daily Show

"The great joy of doing The Daily Show for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider.

Quotes About Ontwerp

"Er bestaat geen mogelijkheid om na te gaan welke beslissing beter is, want er is geen vergelijking. Wij maken alles zomaar voor het eerst en onvoorbereid mee, net als een acteur die voor de vuist een stuk speelt. Maar wat kan het leven waard zijn, als de eerste repetitie voor het leven al het leven zelf is? Het leven lijkt daarom altijd op een schets. Hoewel het woord schets evenmin juist is, want een schets is altijd een ontwerp voor iets, de voorbereiding voor een schilderij, terwijl de schets van ons leven een schets is voor niets, het ontwerp zonder een schilderij." - Author: Milan Kundera
