Olusegun Obasanjo Quotes

"Nigeria has no business with poverty. With our human and material resources, we shall strive to eradicate poverty from our country."

Ursula K Le Guin Quotes

"In its silence, a book is a challenge: it cant lull you with surging music or deafen you with screeching laugh tracks or fire gunshots in your living room; you have to listen to it in your head. A book wont move your eyes for you the way images on a screen do. It wont move your mind unless you give it your mind, or your heart unless you put your heart in it ... To read a story well is to follow it, to act it, to feel it, to become it--everything short of writing it, in fact. Reading is not interactive with a set of rules or options, as games are; reading is actual collaboration with the writers mind. No wonder not everyone is up to it."

Laura Gilfillan Quotes

"People dont handle reality very well and prefer the story we make of our lives instead."

Irving R Kaufman Quotes

"The judicial system is the most expensive machine ever invented for finding out what happened and what to do about it."

JF Hermann Quotes

"Having books standing on a shelf in a room is like having completely different worlds at the ready, waiting to be explored."

Oliver Platt Quotes

"People start to act very unusually when they find out that theyre dying, that they dont have that many years left."

Sasha Alexander Quotes

"I really love the process, with stage, of rehearsal, you get to create a character, and you have a beginning, a middle, and an end of story. And in television, you dont."

Adam Hammond Quotes

"The next time you feel yourself giving in to the sometimes overwhelming urge to panic about the fate of literature in the digital age, follow this simple remedy: remember that you dream. For that is ironclad proof . . . that literature—that narrative art in whatever form—will never die. Humans, strange creatures that we are, make sense of our lives by telling stories. In the space between each day and the next, we refresh our minds by concocting the most fantastic and elaborate fictions. We spend roughly a third of our lives thus, re-arranging our scattered experiences into stories. That we do it at all is bizarre and inexplicable. But as long as we do it, we will crave stories—human stories, stories that speak to us—in our waking life. The Internet, powerful as it is, cannot change that."

Emily Deschanel Quotes

"I was a hostess in a restaurant in New York when I was 21, and I was too good of an employee. I was putting most of my energy into that instead of acting. But my father told my sister and me to look at whatever needed to be done and do that job well, no matter what it was."

Thomas Sprat Quotes

"A great proportion of the wretchedness which has embittered married life, has originated in a negligence of trifles."

Quotes About Destiny And Success

"Destiny had decreed that the Gauls were still to feel the true meaning of Roman valor, for when the raiders started on their mission Romes lucky star led them to Ardea, where Camillus was living in exile, more grieved by the misfortunes of his country than by his own. Growing, as he felt, old and useless, filled with resentment against gods and men, he was asking in the bitterness of his heart where now were the men who had stormed Veii and Falerii - the men whose courage in every fight had been greater even than their success, when suddenly he heard the news that a Gallic army was near. The men of Ardea, he knew, were in anxious consultation, and it had not been his custom to assist at their deliberations; but now, like a man inspired, he burst into the Council chamber." - Author: Titus Livy
