Larry Tanner Quotes

"We parents are an extension of our children, not the other way around. We are their conscience until it becomes their responsibility to tell themselves whats right and necessary. We are their butlers until they are fully able to get the items they need and can clean up after themselves. We are their cheerleaders until they learn how to develop their own confidence and motivation. We are their counselors until they are able to take the lead in making the tough decisions that affect them."

Quotes About Cans Of Worms

"(...) to think that worms and slugs are neurologically simple is another blunder of contemporary, scientifically uninformed philosophy. To take as an example the current "superstar" nematode worm --superstar, because it was the first multicellular organism to have its genome completely sequenced, by 1998, and is widely used as a model organism-- the 1 mm long Caenorhabditis elegans, it exhibits a nervous system of 302 neurons and a sensorimotor system with very complex connectivity patterns." - Author: Istv

Quotes About Metaphorically

"(W.D.) Howells asserted that the Americans love of the supernatural is their common inheritance from no particular ancestry. Their fiction, he added, often gathers in the gray twilight of the reason, on the borderland between experience and illusion." Howellss geographical metaphor was derived, of course, from Hawthornes idea of a moonlit neutral territory, somewhere between the real world and fairy-land, where the Actual and the Imaginary may meet, and each imbue itself with the nature of the other. Whether literally, as in Coopers The Spy, or metaphorically, as in Hawthornes works, the neutral territory/borderland was the familiar setting of the American romance. As American writers came to realize, not only was there a borderland between East and West, civilization and wilderness, but also between the here and the hereafter, between conscious and unconscious, experience and illusion - psychic frontiers on the edge of territories both enticing and terrifying." - Author: Howard Kerr

Quotes About Hard To Let You Go

"-Please, Anita, go home, and dont freak. Just go home, and be happy. Be happy, and let everyone around you be happy. Is that so hard?When Jason said it like that, it didnt seem hard.

To just let go and enjoy what you had. To just let go and not make everybody around you miserable with your own internal dialogue. To just let go and be happy. So simple. So difficult. So terrifying." - Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
