Edmond H Fischer Quotes

"It is commonly said that a teacher fails if he has not been surpassed by his students. There has been no failure on our part in this regard considering how far they have gone."

Ennio Morricone Quotes

"There was a theft! But, of course, if it was up to me, every two years I would win an Oscar."

Ralph Ellison Quotes

"I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids--and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination-- indeed, everything and anything except me."

Elisabeth Austin Quotes

"You drive on a PARKway and park on a DRIVEway"

Josh Waitzkin Quotes

"we cannot calculate our important contests, adventures, and great loves to the end. The only thing we can really count on is getting surprised. No matter how much preparation we do, in the real tests of our lives, well be in unfamiliar terrain. Conditions might not be calm or reasonable. It may feel as though the whole world is stacked against us. This is when we have to perform better than we ever conceived of performing. I believe the key is to have prepared in a manner that allows for inspiration, to have laid the foundation for us to create under the wildest pressures we ever imagined."

John Millington Synge Quotes

"A low line of shore was visible at first on the right between the movement of the waves and fog, but when we came further it was lost sight of, and nothing could be seen but the mist curling in the rigging, and a small circle of foam."

Eric Hobsbawm Quotes

"Utopianism is probably a necessary social device for generating the superhuman efforts without which no major revolution is achieved."

Dodi Prananda Quotes

"Seperti sungai yg mendamba lautan. Ujungnya, hanya tinggal aku, tenggelam dalam kesedihan"

Christopher Coe Quotes

"It was possible to love life, without loving your life."

Joesph Akselrod Quotes

"We are so blinded by technology that we often fail to see all the adventure and fun in life."

Quotes About Election Victory

"October is the cruelest month of any election year, but by then, the pain is so great that even the strong are like jelly and time has lost all meaning for anybody still involved in a political campaign. By that time, even candidates running unopposed have abandoned all hope of victory and live only for the day when they will finally be free to seek vengeance on all those treacherous bastards who once passed themselves off as loyal friends and allies and swore they were only in it because they all shared the same hopes and dreams...." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Dark Side

"London was a city of ghosts, some deader than others. Thorne knew that in this respect, it wasnt unlike any other major city - New York or Paris or Sydney - but he felt instinctively that London was .... at the extreme. The darker side of that history, as opposed to the parks, palaces and pearly kings side that made busloads of Japanese and American tourists gawk and jabber. The hidden history of a city where the lonely, the dispossessed, the homeless, wandered the streets, brushing shoulders with the shadows of those that had come before them. A city in which the poor and the plague-ridden, those long-since hanged for stealing a loaf or murdered for a shilling, jostled for position with those seeking a meal, or a score, or a bed for the night.A city where the dead could stay lost a long time" - Author: Mark Billingham

Quotes About Pools

"Tom gets by, Navidson succeeds. Tom just wants to be, Navidson must become. And yet despite such obvious differences, anyone who looks past Toms wide grin and considers his eyes will find surprisingly deep pools of sorrow. Which is how we know they are brothers, because like Tom, Navidsons eyes share the same water." - Author: Mark Z. Danielewski

Quotes About Alchol

"Sure, genetics do play a role in alcholism. Youre more likely to be an alcoholic if one or both of your parents are also alcoholics. But thats just one part of the equation; the other part is your behavior. You cant become an alcoholic if you never take a drink. So if you know youre predisposed to addiction because of your family history, then just dont get started, and youll never find yourself on that path. Same with any other type of family curse. If you parents smoke, dont pick up a cigarette. If your parents are obese, work hard to exercise and eat right so you dont follow in their foosteps. But some people find it easier to play the victim. They do whatever bad habits they want to because they think they have a built-in defense - "I grew up this way." - Author: Gaby Rodriguez

Quotes About Not Forgiving Yourself

"The reason to forgive ourselves is not because we feel like it or because we want to see ourselves as blameless but because we limit what we can receive from God when we hold on to our past. He wants to do so much more than we could ever imagine. Forgiving yourself starts with believing in Gods incredible love for you and accepting His amazing grace and mercy. If God Almighty can forgive us who are we to hold on to what He has not only forgiven but forgotten" - Author: Sue Augustine

Quotes About Dibenci

"Bolehkah menyatakan kerinduan? Perasaan kepada seseorang?Tentu saja boleh. Tapi jika kita belum siap untuk mengikatkan diri dalam hubungan yang serius, ikatan yang bahkan oleh negara pun diakui dan dilindungi, maka sampaikanlah perasaan itu pada angin saat menerpa wajah, pada tetes air hujan saat menatap keluar jendela, pada butir nasi saat menatap piring, pada cicak di langit-langit kamar saat sendirian dan tak tahan lagi hingga boleh jadi menangis.Dan jangan lupa, sampaikanlah perasaan itu pada yang maha menyayangi. Semoga semua kehormatan perasaan kita dibalas dengan sesuatu yang lebih baik. Semua kehati2an, menghindari hal-hal yang dibenci, akan membawa kita pada kesempatan terbaik. Semoga." - Author: Tere Liye
