Jerry A Coyne Quotes

Whatever you call us? Maybe were Chapter Fifteen or Sixteen on the East Coast, but were the preface in the West."

Quotes About Roy Orbison

"I like Roy Orbisons video for I Drove All Night because its so literal. It is just a man driving throughout the night. I like that silliness. To be in a video is a ridiculous thing. Its almost impossible to do it without any humour." - Author: Richard Ayoade

Quotes About Diversity And Equality

"Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who get it! We need judges who understand what discrimination feels like.

Quotes About Emunim

"I went to interview some of these early Jewish colonial zealots—written off in those days as mere fringe elements—and found that they called themselves Gush Emunim or—it sounded just as bad in English—The Bloc of the Faithful. Why not just say Party of God and have done with it? At least they didnt have the nerve to say that they stole other peoples land because their own home in Poland or Belarus had been taken from them. They said they took the land because god had given it to them from time immemorial. In the noisome town of Hebron, where all of life is focused on a supposedly sacred boneyard in a dank local cave, one of the worlds less pretty sights is that of supposed yeshivah students toting submachine guns and humbling the Arab inhabitants. When I asked one of these charmers where he got his legal authority to be a squatter, he flung his hand, index finger outstretched, toward the sky." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About December And Christmas

"Last December I saw an advertisement outside an electronics store. There was a little boy, delirious with delight, surrounded by computers, stereos, and other gadgets. The text read: "We know what your child wants for Christmas." I stared at the poster, then said to no one in particular, "What your child wants for Christmas is your love, but if he cant get that, hell settle for a bunch of electronic crap." - Author: Derrick Jensen

Quotes About Forjan

"Así es como se va forjando la intimidad. Uno entrega primero su mejor retrato, un producto resplandeciente y muy bien acabado, retocado con fanfarronadas, falsedades y sentido del humor. Luego se necesitan más detalles y entonces se pinta un segundo retrato, y luego un tercero... antes de que pase mucho tiempo los mejores rasgos han desaparecido, y finalmente se revela el secreto; los diferentes niveles de los sucesivos retratos se mezclan y nos delatan, y aunque seguimos pintando y pintando ya no conseguimos vender la mercancía. Tenemos que darnos por satisfechos con la esperanza de que nuestras mujeres, nuestros hijos y nuestros socios acepten como buenas esas fatuas descripciones que les hacemos de nosotros mismos.—Hermosos y malditos, Scott Fitzgerald—" - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Destin

"Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience." - Author: Anthon St. Maarten

Quotes About Silent Killers

"Remember how it feels, Silent One. That murderous rage, and how it makes your blood boil. Remember, and let it carry you the rest of the way—only, learn to freeze it, as well, because the best killers are those who can put their desires on ice." - Author: Nenia Campbell
