Its becauseGod wears blue suede shoes."

Quotes About Swat Valley

"Indeed, Gabriel knew it wasnt all just empty green fields of moorland grass for miles around. Tucked within the wide landscapes of these uplands was an unpredictability that a less observant person might never be aware of. There were waterfalls concealed in swaths of wilderness, rocky stream beds ramblings in deep valleys, and...knotted sheets?" - Author: Olivia Parker

Quotes About Computer Storage

"Ricci created memory palaces in his mind. Each item in the palace represented a series of concepts. The rooms and locations within the palace served as directories and files, similar to computer data storage. Ricci instantaneously learned, retained and retrieved hundreds of new Chinese kanji, to the astonished delight of Chinese nobles." - Author: Janet M. Tavakoli

Quotes About Subway Restaurant

"Then he explains Chinese food in Manhattan to me: See the way it works is, theres one central location out on Long Island where all this stuff is made. Then its piped into the city through a series of underground pipes that run parallel to the train and subway tracks. The restaurants then just pull a lever. One lever for General Tsos chicken, another for beef with broccoli sauce. Its like beer; its on tap. Its amazing how convincing he is when he says this. Theres no pause in his description, nowhere for him to stop and think, to make this up as he goes along. Its as though hes simply repeating something he read in the Times yesterday. This makes me love him more than I did just five minutes ago." - Author: Augusten Burroughs

Quotes About Nerves Funny

"This will not do, he said to himself. If I go on like this I shall become a crazy fool. This must stop! I promised the doctor I would not take tea. Faith, he was pretty right! My nerves must have been getting in a queer state. Funny I did not notice it. I never felt better in my life. However it is all right now, and I shall not be such a fool again. Then he mixed himself a good stiff glass of brandy and water and resolutely sat down to his work." - Author: Bram Stoker

Quotes About Budget Deficit

"...small government gives you big freedoms--and Big Government leaves you with very little freedom. The opposite of Big Government is not small government, but Big Liberty. The bailout and the stimulus and the budget and the trillion-dollar deficits are not merely massive transfers from the most dynamic and productive sector to the least dynamic and productive. When governments annex a huge chunk of the economy, they also annex a huge chunk of individual liberty. You fundamentally change the relationship between the citizen and the state into something closer to that of junkie and pusher--and you make it very difficult ever to change back." - Author: Mark Steyn

Quotes About Christmas Parties

"Thirty- eight years old and he was finished. He sipped at the coffee and remembered where he had gone wrong -- or right. Hed simply gotten tired -- of the insurance game, of the small offices and high glass partitions, the clients; hed simply gotten tired of cheating on his wife, of squeezing secretaries in the elevator and in the halls;hed gotten tired of Christmas parties and New Years parties and birthdays, and payments on new cars and furniture payments -- light, gas, water -- the whole bleeding complex of necessities.Hed gotten tired and quit, thats all. The divorce came soon enough and the drinking came soon enough, and suddenly he was out of it. He had nothing, and he found out that having nothing was difficult too. It was another type of burden. If only there were some gentler road in between. It seemed a man only had two choices -- get in on the hustle or be a bum." - Author: Charles Bukowski
