[Hillingham First Saw The Women By The Dwile Flonkers. He Had Spent The Day Walking Around Dover's Hill, The Shallow Amphitheatre Where The Cotswold Olimpick Games Took Place And Had Taken, He Thought, Some Good Photographs So Far. The Place Was Heaving And He Had Captured Some Of That, He Hoped; The Shifting Bustle As People Flocked From Event To Event And Laughed And Shouted And Ate And Drank. The Sound Of Cymbals And Mandolins And Violins And Guitars Filled The Air About The Crowd, Leaping Around The Brightly Costumed Figures And The Smells Of Roasting Meat And Open Fires.("The Cotswold Olimpicks")]

Walter Isaacson Quotes

"Jobs also used the meetings to enforce focus. At Robert Friedlands farm, his job had been to prune the apple trees so that they would stay strong, and that became a metaphor for his pruning at Apple. Instead of encouraging each group to let product lines proliferate based on marketing considerations, or permitting a thousand ideas to bloom, Jobs insisted that Apple focus on just two or three priorities at a time. " There is no one better at turning off the noise that is going on around him," Cook said. " That allows him to focus on a few things and say no to many things. Few people are really good at that."

Quotes About American Presidents

"Tolstoy went on to observe,"This little incident proves how largely the name of Lincoln is worshipped throughout the world and how legendary his personality has become. Now, why was Lincoln so great that he overshadows all other national heroes? He really was not a great general like Napoleon or Washington; he was not such a skillful statesman as Gladstone or Frederick the Great; but his supremacy expresses itself altogether in his peculiar moral power and in the greatness of his character."Washington was a typical American. Naopoleon was a typical Frenchmen, but Lincoln was a humanitarian as broad as the world. He was bigger than his country--- bigger than all the Presidents t,ogether. We are still too near to his greatness, " Tolstoy concluded, "but after a few centuries more our posterity will find him considerably bigger than we do. His genius is still too strong and too powerful for the common understanding, just as the sun is too hot when its light beams directly on us." - Author: Doris Kearns Goodwin

Quotes About Kurry

"I can call back the solemn twilight and mystery of the deep woods, the earthy smells, the faint odors of the wild flowers, the sheen of rain-washed foliage, the rattling clatter of drops when the wind shook the trees, the far-off hammering of wood-peckers and the muffled drumming of wood-pheasants in the remotenesses of the forest, the snap-shot glimpses of disturbed wild creatures skurrying through the grass, — I can call it all back and make it as real as it ever was, and as blessed. I can call back the prairie, and its loneliness and peace, and a vast hawk hanging motionless in the sky, with his wings spread wide and the blue of the vault showing through the fringe of their end-feathers." - Author: Mark Twain

Quotes About Uragano

"Quanto a Emma, non si chiedeva se lo amasse.

Ella non sapeva che sulle terrazze delle case la pioggia forma laghetti quando le grondaie sono ingorgate, e avrebbe continuato a credersi al sicuro, quando a un tratto scoprì una crepa nel muro." - Author: Gustave Flaubert
