Paul Reiser Quotes

"When two people live in one place, their individual habits get amplified.For example: Im not lazy. But I dont like to move a whole lot. I mean, if I am doing something, Ill do it. Im as active as the next guy. But if Im sitting, I dont like to get up. Even if Im facing the wrong way.If Im talking to someone whose chair isnt quite facing me, Ill talk to the side of their head. If I sit down and realize the TV is angled wrong, I wont get up to adjust. Ill watch it like that. Ill sit there and wait til someone walks by and ask them to move the TV."

Mark Haskell Smith Quotes

Allen Anderson Quotes

"Animals are divine messengers of miracles that go far beyond emotional comfort and practical assistance. Talk to those who have been transported to a heavenly place by the gentle purring of a kitten or whose broken hearts, burdened by worry and pain, have been mended by a dog licking their hand. They will tell you that animals connect them with the River of Life in ways poets imagine and mystics contemplate. They will tell you that their deepest and most sincere relationships with animals are spiritual partnerships."

Delia Parr Quotes

Quotes About Jfk Berlin Wall

"I gave up trying to establish where progress lay, and where revolution, or to see the plot -- as Amparos [Brazilian] comrades expressed it -- of capitalism. How could I continue to think like a European once I learned that the hopes of the far left were kept alive by a Nordeste bishop suspected of having harbored Nazi sympathies in his youth but who now faithfully and fearlessly held high the torch of revolt, upsetting the wary Vatican and the barracudas of Wall Street, and joyfully inflaming the atheism of the proletarian mystics won over by the tender yet menacing banner of a Beautiful Lady who, pierced by seven sorrows, gazed down on the sufferings of her people?" - Author: Umberto Eco

Quotes About Reasoning And Emotion

"He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer- excellent for drawing the veil from mens motives and actions. But for the trained observer to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his." - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
