Cousins Quotes

"CREATIONThe library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where ones devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life.— Cited in ALA Bulletin, Oct. 1954, p.475Norman COUSINS (1915- )"

Li Bingbing Quotes

"I got into the Shanghai Drama Institute because my parents, like all parents, want their children to have good grades and to go to a good college. I became a college student because of them."

"Our deepest wounds surround our greatest gifts."

Philip S Skell Quotes

"I recently asked more than seventy eminent researchers if they would have done I their work differently if they had thought Darwins theory was wrong. The responses were all the same: no. I also examined the outstanding biodiscoveries of the past century: the discovery of the double helix; the characterization of the ribosome: the mapping of genomes; research on medications and drug reactions: improvements in food production and sanitation; the development of new surgeries; and others. I even queried biologists working in areas where one would expect the Darwinian paradigm to have most benefited research, such as the emergence of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides. Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwins theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss."

Ibn Masud Quotes

"Anyone who has learned the Quran and holds it lovingly in his heart will value his nights when people are asleep, his days when people are given to excess, his grief when people are joyful, his weeping when peoplelaugh, his silence when people chatter and his humility when people are arrogant. In other words every moment of life will be precious to him, and he should therefore be gentle, never harsh nor quarrelsome, nor one who makes a clamour in the market nor one who is quick to anger."

Hank Green Quotes

"Being silly is still allowed, not excluded by adulthood. Whats excluded by adulthood is thoughtlessness, so be thoughtful and silly"

Wilfred Thesiger Quotes

"I had learnt the satisfaction which comes from hardship and the pleasure which derives from abstinence; the contentment of a full belly; the richness of meat; the taste of clean water; the ecstasy of surrender when the craving of sleep becomes a torment; the warmth of a fire in the chill of dawn."

Quotes About Germany Travel

"It is very odd to be standing in a locked room in the Penitentiary, speaking with a strange man about France and Italy and Germany. A travelling man. He must be a wanderer, like Jeremiah the peddler. But Jeremiah travelled to earn his bread, and these other sorts of men are rich enough already. They go on voyages because they are curious. They amble around the world and stare at things, they sail across the oceans as if theres nothing to it at all, and if it goes ill with them in one place they simply pick up and move along to another." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Masking

"Man is an onion made up of a hundred integuments, a texture made up of many threads. The ancient Asiatics knew this well enough, and in the Buddhist Yoga an exact technique was devised for unmasking the illusion of the personality. The human merry-go-round sees many changes: the illusion that cost India the efforts of thousands of years to unmask is the same illusion that the West has labored just as hard to maintain and strengthen." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Caverna

"La televisión amigo Daniel, es el Anticristo y le digo yo que bastarán tres o cuatro generaciones para que la gente ya no sepa tirarse pedos por su cuenta y el ser humano vuelva a la caverna, a la barbarie medieval, y a estados de imbecilidad que ya superó la babosa allá por el pleistoceno. Este mundo no se morirá de una bomba atómica como dicen los diarios, se morirá de risa, de banalidad, haciendo un chiste de todo, y además un chiste malo"-Fermin Romero de Torres" - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About 26 Letters

"I want to invent a word that means "to stand tall, even when you feel small and frail." That word, as I envision it, will be "Buqz" (pronounced Bucks). And then, with my newly created word, I can formulate a sentence that ties the record for the shortest sentence that uses all 26 letters of the alphabet. That sentence is, "Flyph Wax, a starving midget jock, buqz." - Author: Jarod Kintz

Quotes About Punching Someone

"I still cant wrap my mind around crossing that line of human behavior – civilized people punching and fighting, making violence their communication of choice. Is it because Im a woman, Ive never considered hitting someone who acted inappropriately? Even one of my best male friends, a gentle man, a believer in spirit and mankind, has thrown a few punches in his time. As a writer, my weapons are words. The thought of hurting someone physically to prove my point has never and will never be an option for me. Well, let me amend that: if someone hurt my child in front of me, tiger-mothers claws would come out." - Author: Rachel Thompson
