Julian Jaynes Quotes

"O, what a world of unseen visions and heard silences, this insubstantial country of the mind! What ineffable essences, these touchless rememberings and unshowable reveries! And the privacy of it all! A secret theater of speechless monologue and prevenient counsel, an invisible mansion of all moods, musings, and mysteries, an infinite resort of disappointments and discoveries. A whole kingdom where each of us reigns reclusively alone, questioning what we will, commanding what we can. A hidden hermitage where we may study out the troubled book of what we have done and yet may do. An introcosm that is more myself than anything I can find in a mirror. This consciousness that is myself of selves, that is everything, and yet is nothing at all - what is it?And where did it come from?And why?"

Julie Cross Quotes

"Were a symphony--our limbs and lips and skin making up the instruments, working together to create a beautiful piece of music."

Stanislaw Lem Quotes

"Do not trust people. They are capable of greatness."

Fred Savage Quotes

"Id like to see myself married with a child and hopefully still involved in the entertainment business as an actor who is also able to write a bit and direct some projects."

Fredrick Douglass Quotes

"Everybody has asked the question. . ."What shall we do with the Negro?" I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by natures plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!"

Lady Bird Johnson Quotes

"Any committee is only as good as the most knowledgeable, determined and vigorous person on it. There must be somebody who provides the flame."

Andrew Niccol Quotes

"The U.S. is by far the biggest exporter of arms in the world. It was true during the Clinton administration, and its true during the Bush administration. Its bipartisan."

Zan Tyler Quotes

"Education - The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations." (1828 Edition of Noah Webster)"

David Gaider Quotes

"Perhaps this was what Queens did. Perhaps they held their Kings in the darkness, deep within their castles and allowed them that moment of weakness they could never show to anyone else. Perhaps they gave strength to their Kings, because everyone else only took it from them."

Quotes About Sweeping Off Your Feet

"By the time Im through sweeping you off your feet, you will be bursting at the seams, begging me to fuck you, never wanting another man inside you again." - Author: T.K. Leigh

Quotes About Defended

"Honour is kind of what you get when you weaponise manners, but if youre brought up in a system where honour is valued more than life itself it makes a lot more sense. Some. A bit. Anyway: they attacked me as they were honour bound to do, and I defended myself as I was bound to do, but killed them in self-defence. I think it was what Gareth had planned. He had dishonoured himself by kidnapping Perkins in the first place and causing our tribes to fall out, then been the cause of me dishonouring myself, which then brought dishonour upon himself. By attacking me, he allowed me to restore my lost honour by killing him, and, odd as it might seem, his honour as well. He died with honour, and I thank and respect him for it. We didnt leave them to the slugs at all, and instead buried them with tribal honours, which is why we were kind of delayed. The ground was hard and we had to ride for miles to find a shovel." - Author: Jasper Fforde

Quotes About Scottish Kilts

"Stark looked strong and healthy and totally gorgeous. I was distracting myself by wondering what exactly Scottish guys did, or didnt, wear under those kilts when he turned to face me.His smile lit up his eyes. "I can practically hear you thinking." - Author: Kristin Cast

Quotes About Temptation

"In such times as we are in, whether the threats be global or local or in individual lives, I too pray for the children. Some days it seems that a sea of temptation and transgression inundates them, simply washes over them before they can successfully withstand it, before they should have to face it. And often at least some of the forces at work seem beyond our personal control. Well, some of them may be beyond our control, but I testify with faith in the living God that they are not beyond His." - Author: Jeffrey R. Holland

Quotes About Feeling Stupid In Love

"Wow," he muttered, his voice choked with tears. "Here we are, the last night and all, and I cant think of anything to say."I pressed my palm to his cheek, feeling the moisture beneath my fingers, and smiled at him. "How about goodbye?""Nah." Puck shook his head. "I make a point of never saying goodbye, princess. Makes it sound like youre never coming back.""Puck—"He bent down and kissed me softly on the lips. Ash stiffened, arms tightening around me, but Puck slid out of reach before either of us could react. "Take care of her, ice-boy," he said, smiling as he backed up several paces. "I guess I wont be seeing you, either, will I? It was...fun, while it lasted.""Im sorry we didnt get to kill each other," Ash said quietly.Puck chuckled and bent to retrieve his fallen dagger. "My one and only regret. Too bad, that would have been an epic fight." Straightening, he gave us that old, stupid grin, raising a hand in farewell. "See you around, lovebirds." - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Difficult Times In Marriage

"Mothers are odd things. Were quick to think of their nurturing aspects, but there is also some sort of strange darkness there. It tends to be much stronger in connection with sons than with daughters. Its easy for a mother to cross an invisible line and enslave a son with kindness. Theres nothing more revolting than a man incapable of slipping his mothers apron strings. He will always revert back to a boy in her presence. I see boys with unnatural attachments to their mothers all the time. Its a sign of the times in which no one ever grows up. We live in soft times." - Author: Damien Echols

Quotes About Famous Feasts

"The famous courtesan Clarimonde died recently, as the result of an orgy which lasted eight days and eight nights. It was something infernally magnificent. They revived the abominations of the feasts of Belshazzar and Cleopatra. Great God! what an age this is in which we live! The guests were served by swarthy slaves speaking an unknown tongue, who to my mind had every appearance of veritable demons; the livery of the meanest among them might have served as a gala-costume for an emperor. There have always been current some very strange stories concerning this Clarimonde, and all her lovers have come to a miserable or a violent end. It has been said that she was a ghoul, a female vampire; but I believe that she was Beelzebub in person." - Author: Théophile Gautier

Quotes About Healthcare

"Any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must - must - redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent healthcare is by definition re-distributional." - Author: Donald Berwick

Quotes About Going Out

"Ill never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didnt know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time." - Author: Al Kaline

Quotes About Lotus Flower

"Because people learn from their mistakes, Danger. Pain and failure are a natural part of life. Its kind of like a parent who watches their child fall down while learning to walk. Instead of coddling the child, you set them back on their feet and let them try again. They have to stumble before they can run. (Alexion)Do you really believe that we need to have our hearts ripped out? (Danger)A flower cant grow without rain. (Alexion)Too much rain and it drowns. (Danger)And yet the most beautiful of the lotus flowers are the ones that grow in the deepest mud. (Alexion)" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
