"Live like a PRINCE and die like a WARRIOR."

TH Janabi Quotes

"All disciplines of science are built on the causality of the relationships governing related events. Yet the theory of evolution is built upon the idea of accidental changes that resulted in complex living systems. I was unable to comprehend how the notion that an infinite number of random accidents systematically happened to produce living species, and kept improving these beings, is justified."

Herbert Spencer Quotes

"Consumptive patients, with lungs incompetent to perform the duties of lungs, people with defective hearts that break down under excitement of the circulation, people with any constitutional flaw preventing the due fulfillment of the conditions of life are continually dying out and leaving behind those fit for the climate, food, and habits to which they are born....And thus is the race kept free from vitiation."

Tim Blake Nelson Quotes

David Eagleman Quotes

"Societies would _not_ be better off if everyone were like Mr Spock, all rationality and no emotion. Instead, a balance - a teaming up of the internal rivals - is optimal for brains. ... Some balance of the emotional and rational systems is needed, and that balance may already be optimized by natural selection in human brains."

Quotes About Advent Calendars

"God gave Moses a calendar that began in spring. (Ex 12:2) God Himself emphasized the importance of Israels new calendar at Ex 23:16; Le 23:34 and De 16:13. Gods calendar was for marking, and keeping, Gods holy days. Using a foreign calendar became illegal. Ignoring Israels new calendar could cost an Israelite their life. (Nu 15:32-35) Yet, the Jewish calendar is not the only calendar. There are plenty of calendars to choose from: Assyrian; Egyptian; Iranian; Armenian; Ethiopian; Hindu; Coptic; Mayan; Chinese; Julian; Byzantine; Islamic and Gregorian; just to mention a few. Has the Seventh Day Adventists settled on any one of these calendars? Which one?pg 5" - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Quotes About Not Thinking With Your Heart

"If you cant put magnolia on a wall then there are always a million other colors you can use, if you cant pay your phone bill then just write letters telling them. Im not playing down the importance of these things, yes you need money for food, yes you need food to survive, but you also need sleep to have energy, to smile to be happy, and to be happy so you can laugh, just so you dont keel over with a heart attack. People forget they have options. And they forget that those things really dont matter. They should concentrate on what they have and not what they dont have. And by the way, wishing and dreaming doesnt mean concentrating on what you dont have, its positive thinking that encourages hoping and believing, not whining and moaning." - Author: Cecelia Ahern

Quotes About Elaboration

"The years... when I pursued the inner images were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. It began at that time, and the later details hardly matter anymore. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything was then." - Author: C.G. Jung

Quotes About How To Treat Others

Quotes About Fractals

"Though blessed with the enviable properties of a mink coat—graceful, unreasonable, and impractical no matter what she was draped over—she was nevertheless one of those people whose personality proved to be the bane of modern mathematicians. She was neither a flat nor solid shape. She showed no symmetry at all. Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics all proved useless. Her Pie Chart was a muddle of arbitrary wedges, her Line Graph, the silhouette of the Alps. And just when one listed her under Chaos Theory—Butterfly Effects, Weather Predictions, Fractals, Bifurcation diagrams and whatnot—she showed up as an equilateral triangle, sometimes even a square." - Author: Marisha Pessl
