[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 Wild Love

"Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell, Holly advised him. That was Docs mistake. He was always lugging home wild things. A hawk with a hurt wing. One time it was a full-grown bobcat with a broken leg. But you cant give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until theyre strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. Thats how youll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. Youll end up looking at the sky.""Shes drunk," Joe Bell informed me. "Moderately," Holly confessed....Holly lifted her martini. "Lets wish the Doc luck, too," she said, touching her glass against mine. "Good luck: and believe me, dearest Doc -- its better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear." - Author: Truman Capote

Quotes About Moving Onto A New Job

"Doris was getting No. 4 ready for a new guest. The floor did not trouble her much, but she spent quite a long time on the taps and the veneered top of the dressing-table. Dusting and polishing she liked—things that showed—but those bits of fluff and dried mud at the bottom of the wardrobe she just pushed back into a corner. There was no means of getting them out, anyway, with that ridge at the front. Furniture was always made as inconvenient as possible. Doris was used to that." - Author: Monica Dickens

Quotes About Rimbaud

"All writers are, somewhere or other, mad. Not les grands fous, like Rimbaud, but mad, yes, mad. Because we do not believe in the stability of reality. We know that it can fragment, like a sheet of glass or a cars windscreen. but we also know that reality can be invented, reordered, constructed, remade. Writing is, in itself, an act of violence perpetrated against reality." - Author: Patricia Duncker
