Bob Benson Quotes

"A part of my appreciation for the good which moments bring has come from awareness and recognition. But it has also come from a correspnding sadness which arises from their passing. When something that can never quite be reenacted comes to an end (and all moments are that way), I feel a pensiveness within. This pensiveness gives my life a quality that might be best described as bittersweet. And those moments take on double meaning and richness - because they are here now - and because they will not always be."

Stanislav Andreski Quotes

"So long as authority inspires awe, confusion and absurdity enhance conservative tendencies in society. Firstly, because clear and logical thinking leads to a cumulation of knowledge (of which the progress of the natural sciences provides the best example) and the advance of knowledge sooner or later undermines the traditional order. Confused thinking, on the other hand, leads nowhere in particular and can be indulged indefinitely without producing any impact upon the world."

Beatrice Wood Quotes

"Over and over Im on the point of giving it up."

Navid Kermani Quotes

"Sich mit diesem oder jenem zu identifizieren, ist also ein normaler Vorgang. Gefährlich wird es, sobald eine einzige Identität bestimmend wird, sobald man nur noch Muslim ist oder Christ oder Deutscher, Iraner oder meinetwegen Anhänger eines bestimmten Fußballclubs oder eines Popstars. Dann wird aus der pragmatischen Einschränkung, die jede Art von Identifizierung bedeutet, eine reale Verstümmelung der Persönlichkeit."

Russian General Aleksander Lebed Quotes

"Have you ever dealt with people who have lost everything in just an hour? In the morning you leave the house where your wife, your children, your parents live. You return and you find a smoking pit. Then something happens to you - to a certain extent you stop being human. You do not need any glory, money anymore; revenge becomes your only joy. And because you no longer cling to life, death avoids you, the bullets fly past. You become a wolf."

Bono Quotes

"As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both."

Lisa Caputo Quotes

"Im happy to tell you that my debt is retired. That happened because I got a good financial adviser."

Joel Stein Quotes

"You have to live among rich liberals to understand what theyre saying. Youll never believe what they mean by middle class. They mean themselves."

Franco Nero Quotes

"If youre a big Hollywood star, you make one movie a year at the most. I can make five in Europe."

Quotes About The God Apollo

"The White GoddessAll saints revile her, and all sober menRuled by the God Apollos golden mean -In scorn of which we sailed to find herIn distant regions likeliest to hold herWhom we desired above all things to know,Sister of the mirage and echo.It was a virtue not to stay,To go our headstrong and heroic waySeeking her out at the volcanos head,Among pack ice, or where the track had fadedBeyond the cavern of the seven sleepers:Whose broad high brow was white as any lepers,Whose eyes were blue, with rowan-berry lips,With hair curled honey-coloured to white hips.The sap of Spring in the young wood a-stirWill celebrate with green the Mother,And every song-bird shout awhile for her;But we are gifted, even in NovemberRawest of seasons, with so huge a senseOf her nakedly worn magnificenceWe forget cruelty and past betrayal,Heedless of where the next bright bolt may fall." - Author: Robert Graves

Quotes About Smart Minds

"Nature is a hanging judge," goes an old saying. Many tragedies come from our physical and cognitive makeup. Our bodies are extraordinarily improbable arrangements of matter, with many ways for things to go wrong and only a few ways for things to go right. We are certain to die, and smart enough to know it. Our minds are adapted to a world that no longer exists, prone to misunderstandings correctable only by arduous education, and condemned to perplexity about the deepest questions we can ascertain." - Author: Steven Pinker

Quotes About Willing To Learn

Quotes About Melli

"We certainly dont wish to be the cause of any trouble in your home." Lucy smiled in response to the delicate insinuation."Please dont worry. You havent caused any trouble at all.""Theres not a word of truth in that," Raine said with a mellifluous laugh. "Unexpected companys always trouble.But Ill be leaving for England soon,and then youll have your home and your husband all to yourself again."Lucys spine stiffened at the implication that Raine had somehow undermined her position as Heaths wife. "Youre welcome in my home. And dont mind any of the time that my husband wishes to spend with either of his sisters." Lucy emphasized the last word lightly. After giving Raine a few seconds to digest that, she continued in a casual tone. "How exciting the prospect of living in England must be." - Author: Lisa Kleypas
