[History Is But The Record Of The Public And Official Acts Of Human Beings. It Is Our Object, Therefore, To Humanize Our History And Deal With People Past And Present; People Who Ate And Possibly Drank; People Who Were Born, Flourished And Died; Not Grave Tragedians, Posing Perpetually For Their Photographs.]

James R Ball Quotes

"We cannot achieve more in life than what we believe in our heart of hearts we deserve to have."

Gail Caldwell Quotes

"The rest of the family tree had a root system soggy with alcohol... One aunt had fallen asleep with her face in the mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving dinner; anothers fondness for Coors was so unwavering that I can still remember the musky smell of the beer and the coldness of the cans. Most of the men drank the way all Texas men drank, or so I believed, which meant that they were tough guys who could hold their liquor until they couldnt anymore--a capacity that often led to some cloudy version of doom, be it financial ruin or suicide or the lesser betrayal of simple estrangement. Both social drinkers, my parents had eluded these tragic endings; in the postwar Texas of suburbs and cocktails, their drinking was routine but undramatic."

Chetan Bhagat Quotes

"Ive told you the four thunderstorms – disappointment, frustration, unfairness and isolation. You cannot avoid them, as like the monsoon they will come into your life at regular intervals. You just need to keep the raincoat handy to not let the spark die"

Abigail Reynolds Quotes

"The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the measure of a country isnt in how its richest citizens fare, but in how its poorest citizens live."

Elizabeth Munro Quotes

"Theres a lot of old shit on my shoes today."

"Let go, and let God."

Gary L Francione Quotes

"We cannot justify treating any sentient nonhuman as our property, as a resource, as a thing that we an use and kill for our purposes."

John William Heisman Quotes

"Is it or is it not a matter of importance that a young man starts out in life with an ability to shut his jaw hard and say "I will," or "I will not," and mean it?"

Isabella Irini Poretsis Quotes

"Fear is the bane of all creatures and bubbles inside all forming a rock of solidifying darkness, sucking all will power to act or to think or to say away. Fear is the bane of all creatures, it is our black hole we cannot live without."

Joan Bennett Quotes

"I might as well have pulled the trigger myself."

Quotes About Terrestres

"Ocasionalmente recibo una carta de alguien que está en «contacto» con extraterrestres. Se me invita a «preguntarles cualquier cosa». A lo largo de los años he preparado una lista de preguntas. No debemos olvidar que los extraterrestres están muy avanzados. Pregunto, por tanto, cosas como «Por favor, proporcióneme una prueba corta del último teorema de Fermat». O de la conjetura de Goldbach... Nunca recibo una respuesta. Por otro lado, si pregunto algo como «¿deberíamos ser buenos?», casi siempre recibo una respuesta. Estos alienígenas siempre están dispuestos a responder a cualquier cosa vaga, especialmente si involucra los clásicos juicios emocionales. Pero sobre algo específico, en lo que hay una oportunidad de descubrir si realmente saben algo más allá de lo que la mayoría de los humanos saben, solo hay silencio." - Author: Richard Dawkins
