Doug Bradley Quotes

"I found a brief piece of by Antonio Vivaldi around this time which became my ‘Pinhead Mood Music. Called Al Santo Sepolcro (At The Holy Sepulchre), it opens more like a piece of modern orchestral music, and although it it moves toward Vivaldis familiar harmonies, there is always the threat that it will fall back into dissonance. The piece progresses in an exquisite agony, poised on a knife edge between beauty and disfigurement, joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain. Perfect."

Frederick Hamilton Quotes

"Apropos of Eskimo, I once heard a missionary describe the extraordinary difficulty he had found in translating the Bible into Eskimo. It was useless to talk of corn or wine to a people who did not know even what they meant, so he had to use equivalents within their powers of comprehension. Thus in the Eskimo version of the Scriptures the miracle of Cana of Galilee is described as turning the water into blubber; the 8th verse of the 5th chapter of the First Epistle of St. Peter ran: ‘Your adversary the devil, as a roaring Polar bear walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. In the same way ‘A land flowing with milk and honey became ‘A land flowing with whales blubber, and throughout the New Testament the words ‘Lamb of God had to be translated ‘little Seal of God, as the nearest possible equivalent. The missionary added that his converts had the lowest opinion of Jonah for not having utilised his exceptional opportunities by killing and eating the whale."

Quotes About Pag

"My dad was a different person when he lectured: his eyes sparkled, his lips turned upward.... Think what it must have been like for Darwin, two hundred years ago. He took that voyage on the Beagle [1831] expecting to document the natural world and he stumbled across something impossible. A creature who could defy the laws of physics--straight out of the pages of mythology...In that one moment, the entire landscape of scientific investigation was drastically and irrevocably changed. The impossible became a widespread scientific reality, as omnipresent as gravity and in some cases, nearly as hard to see." - Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Quotes About Wilderness Thoreau

"...This is the arena in which a spiritualized disobedience means most. It doesnt mean a second New Deal, another massive bureaucratic attack on our problems. It doesnt mean taking to the streets, throwing bricks through the window at the Bank of America, or driving a tractor through the local McDonalds. It means living differently. It means taking responsibility for the character of the human world. Thats a real confrontation with the problem of value. In short, refusal of the present is a return to what Thoreau and Ruskin called "human fundamentals, valuable things," and it is a movement into the future. This movement into the future is also a powerful expression of that most human spiritual emotion, Hope.p.124" - Author: Curtis White

Quotes About Recompense

"As an unperfect actor upon the stageWho with much fear is put besides his partOr some fierce thing, replete with too much rageWhose strengths abundance weakens his own heartSo I, for fear of trust, forget to sayThe perfect ceremony of loves riteAnd in mine own loves strength seem to decayOercharged with burthen of my own loves mighto, let my books be then the eloquenceAnd dumb presagers of my speaking breastWho plead for love, and look for recompenseMore than that tongue that more hath expressd.O, learn to read what silent love hath writTo hear with eyes belongs to loves fine wit." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About Building Community In The Classroom

"I spent the last Friday of summer vacation spreading hot, sticky tar across the roof of George Washington High. My companions were Dopey, Toothless, and Joe, the brain surgeons in charge of building maintenance. At least they were getting paid. I was working forty feet above the ground, breathing in sulfur fumes from Satans vomitorium, for free.Character building, my father said.Mandatory community service, the judge said. Court-ordered restitution for the Foul Deed. He nailed me with the bill for the damage I had done, which meant I had to sell my car and bust my hump at a landscaping company all summer. Oh, and he gave me six months of meetings with a probation officer who thought I was a waste of human flesh.Still, it was better than jail.I pushed the mop back and forth, trying to coat the seams evenly. We didnt want any rain getting into the building and destroying the classrooms. Didnt want to hurt the school. No, sir, we sure didnt." - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Quotes About Loved Ones Lost

"No ones place in this world is guaranteed. Not everyone is going to get a happy ending. But life isnt about how it ends. Its about the moments between. Its about the small things. The way our loved ones laugh. The sight of a butterfly in the sunlight after a year or two in the darkness. The love and support of an old friend. They might not be with us in body, but they are with us in spirit. The feeling of something wed thought lost to us forever returned in a single, life-changing moment. Yes, that is simple, even though it might be momentous to us as individuals. Because every day, on this planet, people are born and people die and stranger things happen. But I know my place now, and my purpose. And no matter what trial you have to endure to find that out...Its worth it." - Author: Jennifer Armintrout

Quotes About Portugis

"Dia tahu, bahawa sultan dan pembesar negeri Melaka itu sudah maklum sejak tahun 1448, pasti Portugis akan datang kembali menyerang! Tetapi kenapa Melaka hanya sibuk menyediakan damak untuk racun pada anak panahnya, tetapi tidak menyediakan timah, untuk 38 pucuk meriam besarnya yang dibeli dari Turki? Kenapa Melaka mampu berbelanja untuk dayang-dayang istana, sultan dan pembesar negeri berlebihan waktu dan tenaga untuk menggiliri selir, tetapi tidak berbelanja membina armada? Kenapa Melaka begitu mudah beri gelar laksamana kepada pendekar silat, tetapi tidak membina kekuatan daya tempur angkatan laut?" - Author: Arena Wati
