[For His Part, Mendeleev Scanned Lecoq De Boisbaudran's Data On Gallium And Told The Experimentalist, With No Justification, That He Must Have Measured Something Wrong, Because The Density And Weight Of Gallium Differed From Mendeleev's Predictions. This Betrays A Flabbergasting Amount Of Gall, But As Science Philosopher-historian Eric Scerri Put It, Mendeleev Always "was Willing To Bend Nature To Fit His Grand Philosophical Scheme." The Only Difference Between Mendeleev And Crackpottery Is That Mendeleev Was Right: Lecoq De Boisbaudran Soon Retracted His Data And Published Results That Corroborated Mendeleev's Predictions.]

Quotes About Never Ending War

"They understand death, they stand there in the church under the skies that have a beginningless past and go into the never-ending future, waiting themselves for death, at the foot of the dead, in a holy temple. - I get a vision of myself and the two little boys hung up in a great endless universe with nothing overhead and nothing under bbut the Infinite Nothingness, the Enormousness of it, the dead without number in all directions of existence whether inward into the atom-worlds of your own body or outward to the universe which may only be one atom in an infinity of atom-worlds and each atom-world only a figure of speech - inward, outward, up and down, nothing but emptiness and divine majesty and silence for the two little boys and me." - Author: Jack Kerouac

Quotes About Different Poses

"Wild animals, like wild places, are invaluable to us precisely because they are not us. They are uncompromisingly different. The paths they follow, the impulses that guide them, are of other orders. The seals holding gaze, before it flukes to push another tunnel through the sea, the hares run, the hawks high gyres : such things are wild. Seeing them, you are made briefly aware of a world at work around and beside our own, a world operating in patterns and purposes that you do not share. These are creatures, you realise that live by voices inaudible to you." - Author: Robert Macfarlane

Quotes About Looking Good For Yourself

"USURY: Everybodys looking for the job in which you never have to pay anyone their pound of flesh. Self-employed nirvana. A lot of artists like to think of themselves as uncompromising; a lot of management consultants wont tell you what they do until theyve sunk five pints. I dont think anybody should give themselves air just because they dont have to hand over a pound of flesh every day at 5pm, and I dont think anyone should beat themselves with broken glass because they do. If youre an artist, well, good for you. Thank your lucky stars every evening and dance in the garden with the fairies. But dont fool yourself that you occupy some kind of higher moral ground. You have to work for that. Writing a few lines, painting a pretty picture - that just wont do it." - Author: Zadie Smith
