Author Quotes

"An interesting contrast between the geology of the present day and that of half a century ago, is presented by the complete emancipation of the modern geologist from the controlling and perverting influence of theology, all-powerful at the earlier date. As the geologist of my young days wrote, he had one eye upon fact, and the other on Genesis; at present, he wisely keeps both eyes on fact, and ignores the pentateuchal mythology altogether. The publication of the Principles of Geology brought upon its illustrious author a period of social ostracism; the instruction given to our children is based upon those principles. Whewell had the courage to attack Lyells fundamental assumption (which surely is a dictate of common sense) that we ought to exhaust known causes before seeking for the explanation of geological phenomena in causes of which we have no experience."

"If prayer flew as quickly as gossip, all the saints in heaven could not keep up with it."

Gareth J Nelson Quotes

"The phrase the fossil record sounds impressive and authoritative. As used by some persons it becomes, as intended, intimidating, taking on the aura of esoteric truth as expounded by an elite class of specialists. But what is it, really, this fossil record? Only data in search of interpretation. All claims to the contrary that I know, and I know of several, are so much superstition."

Helen Nearing Quotes

"The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation."

Quotes About Transportation

"They didnt tell Miles what their destination was. He only knew they traveled south, and hed as soon have done so on a mode of transportation other than the camel.The creatures bore heavy inanimate burdens calmly enough. But his showed a marked aversion to being ridden. The camel made insulting noises as Miles circled it, looking for a place to get on. The animal complained loudly and cursed him bitterly in camel language when he was finally seated. It snarled and growled and turned around to give him venomous looks. Then, as youd expect, it flatly refused to obey him. When Miles tried to turn its head, it tried to bite his feet. When he snapped at the animal to behave, it promptly lay down. When at last the humor seized it to get up, it made sure to throw Miles back and forth violently in the process." - Author: Loretta Chase

Quotes About Spirited

"The summer ended. Day by day, and taking its time, the summer ended. The noises in the street began to change, diminish, voices became fewer, the music sparse. Daily, blocks and blocks of children were spirited away. Grownups retreated from the streets, into the houses. Adolescents moved from the sidewalk to the stoop to the hallway to the stairs, and rooftops were abandoned. Such trees as there were allowed their leaves to fall - they fell unnoticed - seeming to promise, not without bitterness, to endure another year. At night, from a distance, the parks and playgrounds seemed inhabited by fireflies, and the night came sooner, inched in closer, fell with a greater weight. The sound of the alarm clock conquered the sound of the tambourine, the houses put on their winter faces. The houses stared down a bitter landscape, seeming, not without bitterness, to have resolved to endure another year." - Author: James Baldwin

"I roll the covers back up over him and take his hand, noticing how well our palms fit together and thinking back to just after the last time he saved me—when he took my hand and told me that wed always be together.I lower my head to his chest and continue to squeeze his palm. Tears fall onto the bedsheets, dampening the fabric just above his heart. "Im so sorry," I tell him, over and over again.A few moments later, theres a twitching sensation inside my hand. Bens fingers glides over my thumb. ‘Sorry for what?" he breaths. His voice is raspy and weak.I lift my head to check his face. His eyelids flutter. The monitor starts beeping faster. And his lips struggle to move."Dont try to talk," I tell him, searching for the nurses call buzzer."Please," he whispers, his eyes almost fully open now. "Dont let go.""I wont," I promise, gripping his hand even harder." - Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz

Quotes About Melanoma

"In perhaps the most revealing of all the health-related studies, a group of subjects who had contracted malignant melanoma received traditional treatment and then were divided into two groups. One group met weekly for only six weeks; the other did not. Facilitators taught the first group of recovering patients specific communication skills. (When its your life thats at stake, could anything be more crucial?) After meeting only six times and then dispersing for five years, the subjects who learned how to express themselves effectively had a higher survival rate--only 9 percent succumbed as opposed to almost 30 percent in the untrained group." - Author: Kerry Patterson

Quotes About Feeling Gloomy

"But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they notpresent themselves every hour to our eyes? Do we not see a fair creationprepared to receive us the instant we are born —a world furnished toour hands, that cost us nothing? Is it we that light up the sun; that pourdown the rain; and fill the earth with abundance? Whether we sleep orwake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on. Are these things,and the blessings they indicate in future, nothing to, us? Can our grossfeelings be excited by no other subjects than tragedy and suicide? Or isthe gloomy pride of man become so intolerable, that nothing can flatter itbut a sacrifice of the Creator?" - Author: Thomas Paine
