Felix DHerelle Quotes

"...on opening the incubator I experienced one of those rare moments of intense emotion which reward the research worker for all his pains: at first glance I saw that the broth culture, which the night before had been very turbid was perfectly clear: all the bacteria had vanished... as for my agar spread it was devoid of all growth and what caused my emotion was that in a flash I understood: what causes my spots was in fact an invisible microbe, a filterable virus, but a virus parasitic on bacteria. Another thought came to me also, If this is true, the same thing will have probably occurred in the sick man. In his intestine, as in my test-tube, the dysentery bacilli will have dissolved away under the action of their parasite. He should now be cured."

Tatiana De Rosnay Quotes

Buddha Quotes

Frazier Glenn Miller Quotes

"I spent much of my prison time reading. I must have read over 200 large books, mostly fictional stories about the American pioneers, the Vikings, Mafia, etc. As long as I was engrossed in a book, I was not in prison. Reading was my escape."

Kalman Mikszath Quotes

"Olyan gyönyörű, mintha nem is anyjától lett volna, mintha maga szülte volna a költők szilaj, csapongó képzelete, mely átrepül a mindenség fölött, tündérvirágoktól válogat színeket az archoz és ajkhoz, a mennybolttól kölcsönzi a homlok alakját, a suhogó nádtól a termet délcegségét, gyémánttól a szemek ragyogását, mandolától az alakjukat, sötét éjszakától a színüket, és ami szépet kölcsön kér a rózsától, a rubinttól, a harmattól, napsugártól, mindazt vétkes vakmerőséggel öt betűvel fejezi ki "ideál"-nak.(Az arany-kisasszony)"

Antonio Tabucchi Quotes

"I dont want to promote my own image either. I dont like going on television or mixing in literary circles."

Carl Trueman Quotes

"Heresy is usually quite sophisticated, actually has a meaning, and is to be taken very seriously. It is therefore to be carefully distinguished from turgid, pretentious, badly-written Bullsgeshichte, to use the technical German theological term."

Quotes About Your Dad Leaving

"Change is the nature of life, Cassidy. Some of its good, like new babies being born and children growing up and leaving home and all the new adventures that both of those things bring. And sometimes change is more difficult - like when your dad died. But its nothing to fear. Good or bad, when we rise up to meet it, change can make us stronger. Its what moved us farther along down the road ahead." - Author: Heather Vogel Frederick

Quotes About Disaffection

"For a patrimonial state to be stable over time, it is best ruled with consent, at least with consent from the largest minority, if not from the majority. Instinctive obedience must be the norm, otherwise too much effort needs to be put into suppressing disaffection for the regimes wider aims to be achievable. Consent is, however, not always easy to obtain. The collective view of most societies is rather conservative: in the main people prefer to see the social arrangements of their youth perpetuated into their old age; they prefer that things be done in the time-honoured way; they are suspicious of novelty and resistant to change. Thus when radical action must be taken, for whatever reason, a great burden falls on the ruler, the father-figure, who has to overcome this social inertia and persuade his subjects to follow his lead. In order that his will shall prevail, he needs to generate huge respect, preferably adulation, and if at all possible sheer awe among his people." - Author: Paul Kriwaczek

Quotes About Choosing Your Battles

Cummings wrote, "To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself—means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight—and never stop fighting." "Staying real" is one of the most courageous battles that well ever fight." - Author: Brené Brown

Quotes About Containing

"He leaned up a little and watched her face. Her face would now be, forever, more mysterious and impenetrable than the face of any stranger. Strangers faces hold no secrets because the imagination does not invest them with any. But the face of a lover is an unknown precisely because it is invested with so much of oneself. It is a mystery, containing, like all mysteries, the possibility of torment." - Author: James Baldwin

Quotes About Population Control

"The progressive Left can be in favor of Big Government or population control but not both. The mutual incompatibility is about to plunge Europe into societal collapse. There is no precedent in human history for economic growth on declining human capital - and thats before anyone invented unsustainable welfare systems." - Author: Mark Steyn

Quotes About Wagner

"It always makes me sad when I think of how I saw Wagner wasting his vitality, not only by singing their parts to some of his artists, but acting out the smallest details, and of how few they were who were responsive to his wishes." - Author: Anton Seidl

Quotes About Running Like A Girl

"HIDEOUS! Sorry, Mom, but vomit green is NOT my colour. And that dress is impossible to walk in! Its so tight around my legs that it looks like a giant fish tail.

It was getting late and I was running out of time! The last thing I wanted to do was to traumatise Brandon by showing up at the dance looking like a MUTANT FISH GIRL or something. Right now Im SO frustrated that Im seriously considering just NOT going to the dance. Why is my life so hopelessly CRUDDY?!" - Author: Rachel Renée Russell

"Uncle Joe used to spend a fair amount of time in the loony bin. My family wasnt bothered by his regular trips to and from the facility--theyd shrug and say, There goes Joe, and theyd put him in the car and take him in. One day Uncle Frank...was driving Uncle Joe to the crazy place. When they got there, Joe asked Frank to drop him off at the door while Frank went and parked the car. Frank didnt think much of it, and dropped him off.Joe went inside, smiled at the nurse, and said, Hi. Im Frank Hornbacher. Im here to drop off Joe. He likes to park the car, so I let him do that. Hell be right in. The nurses nodded knowingly. The real Frank walked in. The nurse took his arm and guided him away, murmuring the way nurses always do, while Frank hollered in protest, insisting that he was Frank, not Joe. Joe, quite pleased with himself, gave Frank a wave and left." - Author: Marya Hornbacher
