Anthony Kolos Quotes

Ian Stewart Quotes

"Barzellette matematiche I (*)Un biologo, uno statistico e un matematico sono seduti un caffè e guardano alla gente che passa.Un uomo e una donna entrano in un palazzo dallaltra parte della strada. Dieci minuti dopo ne escono accompagnati da un bambino."Si sono riprodotti" dice il biologo."No" ribatte lo statistico. "È un errore nellosservazione. In media sono sia entrate sia uscite due persone mezza"."No, no, no" interviene il matematico. "È del tutto ovvio. Se adesso entra qualcuno, il palazzo sarà vuoto".(*) Lo scopo principale di queste barzellette non è farvi ridere, ma mostrarvi che cosè che fa ridere i matematici e consentirvi di sbirciare in un angolo oscuro del loro ambiente culturale."

Quotes About Disadvantage

Quotes About Sobriety And Love

"I have no other passion to keep me in breath. What avarice, ambition, quarrels, law suits do for others who, like me, have no particular vocation, love would much more commodiously do; it would restore to me vigilance, sobriety, grace, and the care of my person; it would reassure my countenance, so that the grimaces of old age, those deformed and dismal looks, might not come to disgrace it; would again put me upon sound and wise studies, by which I might render myself more loved and esteemed, clearing my mind of the despair of itself and of its use, and redintegrating it to itself; would divert me from a thousand troublesome thoughts, a thousand melancholic humours that idleness and the ill posture of our health loads us withal at such an age; would warm again, in dreams at least, the blood that nature is abandoning; would hold up the chin, and a little stretch out the nerves, the vigour and gaiety of life of that poor man who is going full drive towards his ruin." - Author: Michel de Montaigne

Quotes About Blackberry Fruit

"Our rocky ledge overlooking the valley. Perhaps a little less green than usual, but the blackberry bushes hang heavy with fruit.

This was the doorway to both sustenance and sanity. And we were each others key." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Only Talking To One Person

"She was staring at the low ceiling, and I had the feeling that there was another Severian there, the kind and even noble Severian who existed only in Dorcass mind. All of us, I suppose, when we think we are talking most intimately to someone else, are actually addressing an image we have of the person to whom we believe we speak." - Author: Gene Wolfe

Quotes About Importance

"For us of course the shared activity and therefore the companionship on which Friendship supervenes will not often be a bodily one like hunting or fighting. It may be a common religion, common studies, a common profession, even a common recreation. All who share it will be our companions; but one or two or three who share something more will be our Friends. In this kind of love, as Emerson said, Do you love me? means Do you see the same truth? - Or at least, "Do you care about the same truth?" The man who agrees with us that some question, little regarded by others, is of great importance can be our Friend. He need not agree with us about the answer." - Author: C.S. Lewis
