[From The Age Of 13, I Was Attracted To Physics And Mathematics. My Interest In These Subjects Derived Mostly From Popular Science Books That I Read Avidly. Early On I Was Fascinated By Theoretical Physics And Determined To Become A Theoretical Physicist. I Had No Real Idea What That Meant, But It Seemed Incredibly Exciting To Spend One's Life Attempting To Find The Secrets Of The Universe By Using One's Mind.]

Sandro Veronesi Quotes

"Heads will fly all over the place, others will explode by themselves, everyone will have their chance to betray, and those who dont betray will be betrayed."

Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson Quotes

"What struck me whenever I visited a farm was how much more sophisticated was the life the animals were capable of living than was assumed by those exploiting them. The more we are willing to see about their lives, the more we will see. Humans seem to take perverse pleasure in attributing stupidity to animals when it is almost always entirely a question of human ignorance."

Corazon Aquino Quotes

"It wasnt until we got over the self pity that we were able to accept suffering as apart of our life with Christ. A man or woman reaches this plane only when he or she ceases to be the hero."

Robert Remak Quotes

"The extracellular genesis of cells in animals seemed to me, ever since the publication of the cell theory [of Schwann], just as unlikely as the spontaneous generation of organisms. These doubts produced my observations on the multiplication of blood cells by division in bird and mammalian embryos and on the division of muscle bundles in frog larvae. Since then I have continued these observations in frog larvae, where it is possible to follow the history of tissues back to segmentation."

Jack Brickhouse Quotes

"I regard sports first and foremost as entertainment, so dry documentary narration is not for me."

Frank Tipler Quotes

"The first human-to-computer uploads of 2100 will prove that a perfect simulation is the thing being simulated - that a silicon soul doesnt need a physical body to inhabit. So eventually everybody who ever lived will be resurrected inside a living machine indistinguishable from God. Isnt it amazing what you can do with unlimited hard-disk space?"

Elliott ODonnell Quotes

"I think locality exercises strange influence over some minds. The peaceful meadow-scenery holds no lurking horrors in its bosom, but in the lonesome moorlands, full of curiously molded boulders, grotesque fancies must assail one there. Creatures seem to come, odd and ill-defined as their surroundings. As a child I had a peculiar horror of those tall, odd-shaped boulders, with seeming faces, featureless, it is true, but sometimes strangely resembling humans and animals. I believe the spinney may be haunted by something of this nature, terrible as the trees. ("The Haunted Spinney")"

Austin Ligon Quotes

"Private-equity and hedge-fund guys typically come into a situation of mediocrity, where rapid change may result in a profit."

George Zebrowski Quotes

"The finest SF comes to grips with lifes mysteries, with our resentments against our own natures and our limited societies. It does so by asking basic questions in the artful, liberating way that is unique to this form of writing. Echoes of it are found in other forms of fiction - in the novel of ideas, in the historical novel, in the writings of the great philosophers and scientists; but the best SF does this all more searchingly, by taking what is in most people only a moment of wonder and rebellion against the arbitrariness of existence and making of it an art enriched by knowledge and possibility, expressing our deepest human longing to penetrate into the dark heart of the unknown."

Greg Curtis Quotes

"And there shall come a kingdom in which the lion shall lie down with the lamb. Unfortunately for the lamb it shall be inside the lion!"

Quotes About Undergarments

"I choose my outfit, my undergarments with care, because I know from experience that a drink, with him, will lead to much, much more. In the bar, I bask in his attention, happy in this moment, knowing full well it will be fleeting. I lie in bed, his sleeping body curled around mine, his arm around my waist, marvelling that someone can be so close, skin against mine, but simultaneously seem so remote, so inaccessible.When we part the next day and I hear the words I fully expect to hear - well, I guess Ill see you when I get back - i feel a twinge of something I was determined not to feel. A brief pang of remorse that I may have been selling little pieces of myself to the lowest bidder." - Author: Catherine Sanderson

Quotes About Past Friends

"When this is over, society will need entertainment to get past it. Well make movies about it, hundreds of movies, and in every one of them, well be the heroes and the love interests and best friends and winners and well watch these movies until we are so far removed from our own history, well forget how it really felt to be here." - Author: Courtney Summers

Quotes About Hurt Feelings Of Love

"I realize its commonplace for parents to say to their child sternly, I love you, but I dont always like you. But what kind of love is that? It seems to me that comes down to, Im not oblivious to you - that is, you can still hurt my feelings - but I cant stand having you around. Who wants to be loved like that? Given a choice, I might skip the deep blood tie and settle for being liked. I wonder if wouldnt have been more moved if my own mother had taken me in her arms and said, I like you. I wonder if just enjoying your kids company isnt more important." - Author: Lionel Shriver

Quotes About Life Urdu

"It seemed a ruse that fear of death should be the sole motivation for living and, yet, to quell this fear made the prospect of living itself seem all the more absurd; to extend this further, the notion of living ones life for the purposes of pondering the absurdity of living was an even greater absurdity in and of itself, which thus, by reductio ad absurdum, rendered the fear of death a necessary function of life and any lack thereof, a trifling matter rooted in self-inflicted incoherence." - Author: Ashim Shanker

Quotes About Cowardice

"It wasnt courage that motivated this casual, impersonal manner of treating so much pain; it was a special brand of cowardice, a destructive defense mechanism, forcing others to listen to the most horrendous experiences and yet denying them the moment of empathy: dont feel sorry for me; nothing is too big for me to handle. This is nothing, nothing really." - Author: Azar Nafisi

Quotes About Federal Service

Quotes About Ekanje

"Zar ne vidiš koliko mi je važno...? Da zatrpaš sobom prazninu što me plaši, da me izdvojiš između svih ljudi, da zaboraviš predrasude i zamišljeno nepotrebno dostojanstvo, da pošalješ do đavola sve pametne postupke, jer nisu pametni, da me uvjeriš kako mi daješ sebe cijelu u zamjenu za ono što gubim, ili da se praviš da je tako, da me obmaneš dok se ne naviknem na život, jer ovo što je sad, to nije život, već sjećanje i čekanje" - Author: Meša Selimović

Quotes About Aureolus

"There were a great many other such tableaux. As Martial had predicted, bears featured prominently in most of them. A temple thief was made to reenact the role of the robber Laureolus, made famous by the ancient plays of Ennius and Naevius; he was nailed to a cross and then subjected to the attack of the bears. A freedman who had killed his former master was made to put on a Greek chlamys and go walking though a stage forest populated by cavorting satyrs and nymphs, like Orpheus lost in the woods; when one of the satyrs played a shrill tune on his pipes, the trees dispersed and the man was subject to an attack by bears. An arsonist was made to strap on wings in imitation of Daedalus, ascend a high platform, and then leap off; the wings actually carried him aloft for a short distance, a remarkable sight, until he plunged into an enclosure full of bears and was torn to pieces." - Author: Steven Saylor

Quotes About Avid

"The late Mr. David Hume, in his posthumous works, places the powers of generation much above those of our boasted reason; and adds, that reason can only make a machine, as a clock or a ship, but the power of generation makes the maker of the machine; ... he concludes, that the world itself might have been generated, rather than created ; that is, it might have been gradually produced from very small beginnings, increasing by the activity of its inherent principles, rather than by a sudden evolution of the whole by the Almighty fiat." - Author: David Hume
