Peter DeFazio Quotes

"Second, the resolution contains the blatantly false assertion that negotiating a timeline for bringing U.S. troops home with the Iraqi government undermines U.S. national security. Such a statement shows a misunderstanding of the enemy we face in Iraq."

Steve Prefontaine Quotes

"Nobody likes tainted victories."

Warren Heiti Quotes

"Mute, I stumble through the dry, verdigris aqueducts of your eye, thinking this prayer, formic acid, ant spit and sandpaper: blink and I will be expelled, sharpen the edge of the water, subtract me from eternity."

"Motivation doesnt come from empty words, because words fade over time. If persistance and perservance is what you live then what motivation do you need? Your dreams can turn into goals and your goals can turn into a reality. You are all the motivation you need to succeed."

Shilpi Somaya Gowda Quotes

"Then she rushes to pick up Asha from school, where she is known only as "Ashas mom" by the other mothers, who seem to all spend a lot of time together. Somer has no time for the PTA and bake sales. She has no time for herself. Her profession no longer defines her, but neither does being a mother. Both are pieces of her, and yet they dont seem to add up to a whole."

Quotes About Sat Scores

"I suspect the I.Q., SAT, and school grades are tests designed by nerds so they can get high scores in order to call each other intelligent...Smart and wise people who score low on IQ tests, or patently intellectually defective ones, like the former U.S. president George W. Bush, who score high on them (130), are testing the test and not the reverse." - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Quotes About Privacy And Social Networking

"I mean, all this stuff youre involved in, its all gossip. Its people talking about each other behind their backs. Thats the vast majority of this social media, all these reviews, all these comments. Your tools have elevated gossip, hearsay and conjecture to the level of valid, mainstream communication. And besides that, its fucking dorky." - Author: Dave Eggers

Quotes About Alcohol Withdrawal

"The idea that the creative endeavor and mind-altering substances are entwined is one of the great pop-intellectual myths of our time. ... Substance abusing writers are just substance abusers — common garden variety drunks and druggies, in other words. Any claims that the drugs and alcohol are necessary to dull a finer sensibility are just the usual self-serving bullshit. Ive heard alcoholic snowplow drivers make the same claim, that they drink to still the demons." - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Critical Thinking By Socrates

"Power as I possess is not, as many believe, given in exchange for a soul. To hear the ignorant speak, one would think it is merely a simple bargain, an exchange of vows, perhaps, and the power one seeks simply flows from the fingertips for the asking. But no, it is not so easy as that! The truly great gifts are not gifts at all, but treasures obtained after long and difficult searching, prizes won only through hard-fought victories over relentless, near-invincible adversaries. [...]The ignorant speak of hidden arts, but they are not hidden. Indeed, there is nothing secret about them at all; they are freely open and available to any who would pursue them. Ah, but the price! The price is nothing less than the devotion of an entire life. So perhaps the simple-minded are right, after all, in thinking of the acquisition of power as a pact in which the soul is bartered. There is no other way.- Morgian" - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead

Quotes About Extending

"Sebastian then turned to the redhead. I didnt want to know her name. I already had a perfectly fitting nickname for her in my head. "This is Selena Alvaro." "Please call me Lena," the girl smiled, extending a manicured hand. I shook it politely. Whatever Sebastians issue was, I wasnt going to give him the satisfaction of showing that I cared. "Do you know Bast well?" she asked me. Ugh. That nickname again. "I guess not," I replied curtly, shooting him a pointed look. "Hes just one of the vampires in town." - Author: Ada Adams

Quotes About Bite Marks

"Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle." - Author: Myla Goldberg

Quotes About Loving Someone Who Hurts You

"FEARLESS is not the absense of fear. Its not being completely unafraid. FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them.FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though youve been hurt before. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want all over again... even though every time youve tried before, youve lost. Its FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you cant breathe without them. Its FEARLESS to say "youre NOT sorry," and walk away.I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS." - Author: Taylor Swift

Quotes About Peace And Not War

"Annabeth," he said hesitantly, "in New Rome, demigods can live their whole lives in peace." Her expression turned guarded. "Reyna explained it to me. But, Percy, you belong at Camp Half-Blood. That other life—""I know," Percy said. "But while I was there, I saw so many demigods living without fear: kids going to college, couples getting married and raising families. Theres nothing like that at Camp Half-Blood. I kept thinking about you and me…and maybe someday when this war with the giants is over…"It was hard to tell in the golden light, but he thought Annabeth was blushing. "Oh," she said…"Im sorry," he said. "I just…I had to think of that to keep going. To give me hope. Forget I mentioned—""No!" she said. "Gods, Percy, thats so sweet." - Author: Rick Riordan
