Kaitlin Bevis Quotes

"No one fears death more than immortals. Humans adjust to their lot in life little bits at a time. Theyre introduced to the concept with goldfish, then move up to puppies, ancient relatives and reckless friends, each victim closer to them than the last. Death follows them through life, making itself known. Numbing them bit by bit until there is nothing left in them but resignation. We had no such preparation. We were never meant to die."

Jane March Quotes

Osayi Osar Emokpae Quotes

Lesley Anne Cowan Quotes

"Why do adults have to diminish everything by feeling they need to end meetings with a false positive? Its so selfish. They say it not because they believe it, but because it helps them feel some kind of accomplishment when they walk away. Like theyve done their job. But what do they leave behind?Its like when teachers tell Tyler that he should be a lawyer because hes good at arguing, but meanwhile he cant pass grade nine. No one wants to say hes stupid, or that hes probably going to end up in jail like his brother, so they fill his head with these stupid dreams until hes eighteen, with no credits and totally messed up for life. I say, tell the truth, squash the dream, and stop with the second chances."

Emily Rapp Quotes

"Ronan taught me that children do not exist to honor their parents; their parents exist to honor them. [...] Ronan was mine but he never belonged to me. This is not an issue of ownership. A child is not a couch."

Kamala Das Quotes

"It is I who drink lonely Drinks at twelve, midnight, in hotels of strange towns, It is I who laugh, it is I who make love And then, feel shame, it is I who lie dying With a rattle in my throat. I am sinner, I am saint. I am the beloved and the Betrayed. I have no joys that are not yours, no Aches which are not yours. I too call myself I."

Uwe Boll Quotes

"I am brave," Will said..."Yes, you are," Magnus said, and kissed him.

"Why cant we be friends now?" said the other, holding him affectionately. "Its what I want. Its what you want." But the horses didnt want it — they swerved apart: the earth didnt want it, sending up rocks through which riders must pass single file; the temple, the tank, the jail, the palace, the birds, the carrion, the Guest House, that came into view as they emerged from the gap and saw Mau beneath: they didnt want it, they said in their hundred voices "No, not yet," and the sky said "No, not there." - Author: E.M.

Quotes About Teleological

"The bold code of the transhumanist will rise. Thats an inevitable, undeniable fact. Its embedded in the undemocratic nature of technology and our own teleological evolutionary advancment. It is the future. We are the future like it or not. And it needs to molded, guided, and handled correctly by the strength and wisdom of transhumanist scientists with their nations and resources standing behind them, facilitating them. It needs to be supported in a way that we can make a successful transition into it, and not sacrifice ourselves—either by its overwhelming power or by a fear of harnessing that power. You need to put your resources into the technology. Into our education system. Into our universities, industries, and ideas. Into the strongest of our society. Into the brightest of our society. Into the best of our society So that we can attain the future." - Author: Zoltan Istvan
