The Marvel Is That The Synapses Don't Touch. There Is Always A Gap — There Must A Gap, Otherwise Consciousness Would Not Exist. The Bosphorus Is That Synaptic Cleft.

Quotes About Wet Dogs

"He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered. It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish, and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doodle. It is balder and dash.(writing about US President Warren G. Harding)" - Author: H.L. Mencken

Quotes About Grown Man

You see all the people he has ever been all rolled up into one.I look at him and see the baby I held in my arms, dewing besotted, unable to believe that Id created another human being. I see the toddler, reaching for my hand, the schoolboy weeping tears of fury after being bullied  by some other child. I saw the vulnerabilities, the love, the history." - Author: Jojo Moyes

Quotes About Offender

"Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past.

You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go." - Author: Rick Warren
