Quotes About Irak

"You havent lost Iraki, you know. I dont know if it helps to say that. I lost a friend once myself, and I know how it goes.Hell find his way inside you, and youll carry him onward. Behind your heartbeat, youll hear another one, faint and out of step. People will say you are speaking his opinions, or your hair has turned like his.There are no more facts about him, that part is over. Now is the time for essential things. Youll see visions of him wherever you go. Youll see his eyes so moist, his intentions so blinding, youll think he is more alive than you. You will look around and wonder if it was you who died.Gradually youll grow older than him, and love him as your son. In the future, youll live astride the line separating life from death. Youll become experienced in the wisdom of grief. You wont wait until people die to grieve for them. Youll give them their grief while they are still alive, for then judgement falls away, and there remains only the miracle of being." - Author: Rana Dasgupta

Quotes About Salt Lake City

"Balanced atop the highest spire of the Salt Lake Temple, gleaming in the Utah sun, a statue of the angel Moroni stands watch over downtown Salt Lake City with his golden trumpet raised. This massive granite edifice is the spiritual and temporal nexus of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), which presents itself as the worlds only true religion. Temple Square is to Mormons what the Vatican is to Catholics, or the Kaaba in Mecca is to Muslims. At last count there were more than eleven million Saints the world over, and Mormonism is the fastest-growing faith in the Western Hemisphere. At present in the United States there are more Mormons than Presbyterians or Episcopalians. On the planet as a whole, there are now more Mormons than Jews. Mormonism is considered in some sober academic circles to be well on its way to becoming a major world religion--the first such faith to emerge since Islam." - Author: Jon Krakauer

Quotes About Healed Scars

"I am in awe of the perpetual tumult of the sea. I am moved by the still place on the horizon where the sky begins. I am stirred by the soaring and dipping fields that make the landscape into a rumpled green counterpane. I thought I would never have such powerful feelings again. I thought I would live through the rest of my life having experiences, and thoughts, but I never thought I would again feel deeply-- I was convinced that my wounds had healed and become thick scars, essentially numb." - Author: Katharine Weber

Quotes About Developmental Psychology

"Then again, itd taken more than two hundred years after the invention of the scientific method before any Muggle scientists had thought to systematically investigate which sentences a human four-year-old could or couldnt understand. The developmental psychology of linguistics couldve been discovered in the eighteenth century, in principle, but no one had even thought to look until the twentieth. So you couldnt really blame the much smaller wizarding world for not investigating the Retrieval Charm." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Quotes About Challenge Yourself

"So the challenge, as you contemplate your next opportunity to be boring or remarkable, is to answer these two questions: (1) "If I get criticized for this, will I suffer any measurable impact? Will I lose my job, get hit upside the head with a softball bat, or lose important friendships?" If the only side effect of the criticism is that you will feel bad about the criticism, then you have to compare that bad feeling with the benefits youll get from actually doing something worth doing. Being remarkable is exciting, fun, profitable, and great for your career. Feeling bad wears off.And then, once youve compared the bad feeling and the benefits, and youve sold yourself on taking the remarkable path, answer this one: (2) How can I create something that critics will criticize?" - Author: Seth Godin
