John Bates Clark Quotes

"The market tends to pay as a wage what an individual laborer is worth. But the case last studied suggests the question how accurately the law operates in practice. May it not be an honest law, but be so vitiated in its working as to give a dishonest result?"

Scott Abel Quotes

"If you work and do pure research in this industry as long as I have – and you actually pay attention and do your homework, then this naked and raw truth stands out -> The supplement world of cancer-fighters, CAD-preventers, health-promoters, magic-water – AND/OR - muscle-builders, fat-burners and weight-loss agents – all of them – already have an over-crowded mass grave-yard of previous magic bullets that would supposedly make your life and/or body better – Yes, so promising and heavily promoted "this" era – but so dead and gone the next – leaving in their wake a trail of mass-consumer confusion – but also leaving their actual intention -> a new generation of passive consumers – those who cant differentiate the sizzle from the steak. Or as W.C. Fields put it so long ago – "Theres a sucker born every minute." -> There isnt a supplement on the planet that marks the difference between ‘health or ill-health – or between ‘fit or fat. - or between ‘results and stagnation."

Dick Van Dyke Quotes

Quotes About Not Blending In

"See now, for a good blade, one that will not betray the man in battle, rods of hard and soft iron must be heated and braided together. Then is the blade folded over and hammered flat again, and maybe yet again, many times for the finest blades... So the hard and soft iron are mingled without blending, before the blade is hammered up to its finished form and tempered, and ground to an edge that shall draw blood from the wind. So comes the pattern, like oil and water that mingle but do not mix. Yet it is the strength of the blade, for without the hard iron the blade would bend in battle, and without the soft iron it would break." - Author: Rosemary Sutcliff

Quotes About Fierce Friends

"O, the fierce wretchedness that glory brings us! Who would not wish to be from wealth exempt, Since riches point to misery and contempt? Who would be so mockd with glory? or to live But in a dream of friendship? To have his pomp and all what state compounds But only painted, like his varnishd friends? Poor honest lord, brought low by his own heart, Undone by goodness! Strange, unusual blood, When mans worst sin is, he does too much good! Who, then, dares to be half so kind again? For bounty, that makes gods, does still mar men. My dearest lord, blessd, to be most accursed, Rich, only to be wretched, thy great fortunes Are made thy chief afflictions. Alas, kind lord! Hes flung in rage from this ingrateful seat Of monstrous friends, nor has he with him to Supply his life, or that which can command it. Ill follow and inquire him out: Ill ever serve his mind with my best will; Whilst I have gold, Ill be his steward still." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About That Boy You Like

"Uh… not sure buying the entire store for that boy is good, Chace. If hes living on the street, the rest of the homeless population in Carnal will fall on him like vultures," I remarked.Then he turned to me. "Got one homeless guy in town, darlin. He calls himself Outlaw Al. He celebrated his seven hundredth birthday this year and looks it. You talk to him, hell swear he was the one who shot Billy the Kid. Every feral cat in Carnal will claw you soon as look at you but of any day or night, one or a dozen of ‘em will be curled into Al like hes their Momma. He has two teeth. And I dont see good things for his dental future since Shambles and Sunny built a small lean-to behind La-La Land so hell have some protection from exposure. He was much obliged for this effort. Moved in while Shambles was still hammering in the nails. He mostly stays there except when its his time to howl at the moon. And Shambles gives him baked goods he doesnt sell. I think our kidll be good." - Author: Kristen Ashley

Quotes About Painting The World

"But didnt everyone get everything? Hadnt they had enough yet? Everything on earth is tailored for this everyone. Everyone gets all the TV programs, damn near all the cinema, and about eighty percent of all music. After that come the secondary medium of painting and those other visual arts that do not move. Those are generally just for someone and although you always hear people moaning that there isnt enough of them, in truth someone does all right. Galleries, museums, basements in Berlin, studio flats, journals, bare walls in urban centers—someone gets what they want and deserve, most of the time. But where are the things that no one wants? Every now and then Alex would see or hear something that appeared to be for no one but soon enough it turned out to be for someone and, after a certain amount of advertising revenue had been spent, would explode into the world for everyone. Who was left to make stuff for no one?" - Author: Zadie Smith
