William Shockley Quotes

"Frequently, I have been asked if an experiment I have planned is pure or applied science; to me it is more important to know if the experiment will yield new and probably enduring knowledge about nature. If it is likely to yield such knowledge, it is, in my opinion, good fundamental research; and this is more important than whether the motivation is purely aesthetic satisfaction on the part of the experimenter on the one hand or the improvement of the stability of a high-power transistor on the other."

Quotes About Passion For Education

"Each of us is a product of our family, environment, friends, education, culture, and society. These conditions lead to a certain way of seeing things and a certain way of responding to things. When we see this, we have compassion for everyone, including ourselves. We see that if we want something to change, we also have to help change his or her family, environment, friends, education, culture, and society. We are responsible, directly or indirectly, for each persons consciousness attitudes." - Author: Thích Nhất Hạnh

Quotes About Humor And Stress

"Humor is a developed sense, stemming basically from cruelty. The more primitive a mind, the less selectivity exists. … A man slips on a banana peel and breaks his back. The adult stops laughing at that point, the child does not. And a civilized ego finds embarrassment as acutely distressing as physical pain. A baby, a child, a moron is incapable of practicing empathy. He cannot identify himself with another individual. He is regrettably autistic; his own rules are arbitrary" - Author: Lewis Padgett

Quotes About Artists Inspiration

"The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody wholl listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If youre sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find thats almost never the case." - Author: Chuck Close

Quotes About Kangaroos

"If God meant for us to carry baggage around, he would have made our skin have little pouches like kangaroos. Or maybe he would have just made it so that each and every one of us were born with huge- ass shoulders to carry the load. Clearly, we werent made to carry the weight of the world, kinda makes you wonder why we do it anyway, huh?" - Author: Rachel Van Dyken

Quotes About The Sun On Your Face

"After all, these were not topics you could discuss with someone else; what was there to say to another person about how it felt? You could concoct things you wanted but in certain moments the light shifted or time slowed – on Sundays in particular, time slowed, and occasionally on Saturday afternoons, if you didnt have a game – and you saw that it was all really nothing. It was just endlessness and what you got or didnt get would hardly make a difference, and then what was there? The loathsomely familiar room where you lived, your horrible face and body, and the rebuke of other people, how they were unbothered, how you would seem, if you tried to explain, kind of weird and kind of boring and not even original. Why did their lives proceed so easily? Why was it that you needed to convince them and they needed to be convinced and not the other way around? Not, of course, that you would actually succeed if you tried." - Author: Curtis Sittenfeld

Quotes About Prosjak

"...A onda sam se sapleo o to „pobeći". Kad odeš, bežiš; kad bežiš, smatraš sebe slabijim. Kad se smatraš slabijim, ili uzmeš da ojačaš ili će tvoj život uvek biti nekakvo bežanje. I onda mi sine: sve je do ugla kamere. Ako si pesimista, uvek ćeš da nađeš nekog tužnog violinistu što svira rekvijem boljem sutra i demaskira ga u „malo sutra". Uvek ćeš da nađeš ubedljiv dokaz da smo propali i da ništa ne vredi ni trud, ni talenat, ni vera u svoju zemlju. Ali, sa druge strane, ako gurneš ruku u gaće i napipaš ono ispod falusa, naći ćeš ne samo žargonski sinonim za hrabrost, nego i sidro koje će te zadržati ovde. Lakim pogledom oko sebe, videćeš ljude koji su uspešni i vredni svojoj zemlji, a nisu lopine. Samo ako si voljan da tako usmeriš kameru. Sve se bira. Ja sam tada odabrao tako, i nikad više nisam razmišljao da odem. (...) I dalje mi je žao prosjaka s violinom, ali sam uveren da takav postoji i u Americi." - Author: Marko Šelić
