Quotes About Curiosity And Cat

"All children are curious and I wonder by what process this trait becomes developed in some and suppressed in others. I suspect again that schools and colleges help in the suppression insofar as they meet curiosity by giving the answers, rather than by some method that leads from narrower questions to broader questions. It is hard to satisfy the curiosity of a child, and even harder to satisfy the curiosity of a scientist, and methods that meet curiosity with satisfaction are thus not apt to foster the development of the child into the scientist. I dont advocate turning all children into professional scientists, although I think there would be advantages if all adults retained something of the questioning attitude, if their curiosity were less easily satisfied by dogma, of whatever variety." - Author: Marston Bates

Quotes About Sabedoria

"Era só isso?" _ Sim, só isso.Existe sabedoria na descoberta de que tudo é imperfeito e trivial.Quando fazemos as pazes com a imperfeição dos dias, das pessoas, de nós mesmos... deixamos de estar insatisfeitos; enfim relaxamos e aprendemos a contemplar o presente.Quem acreditou que o "só isso" não bastaria, comprou a falsa ideia de felicidade, a felicidade plastificada que só funciona no photoshop, mas que não é definitiva nem palpável.Altos e baixos hão de vir, mas o restante é simples. O restante é modesto. A maioria dos dias é comum, familiar, gratuito _ feito papel pardo atado com barbante..." - Author: Fabíola Simões

Quotes About Know Alls

"That is what they say I said when they found me in the blackness after three hours; found me crouching in the blackness over the plump, half-eaten body of Capt. Norrys, with my own cat leaping and tearing at my throat....When I speak of poor Norrys they accuse me of a hideous thing, but they must know that I did not do it. They must know it was the rats; the slithering, scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race behind the padding in this room and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats they can never hear; the rats, the rats in the walls." - Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Quotes About Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed

"I read Greek myths. I read about far off places, Venice and Paris. I read about men who searched for things they could not find at home, and women who fell in love with the wrong person and waited for the arrival of their beloved for so long that a year was no different from a single day. The same thing was happening to me. Years were passing. I was already a woman, and I still wasnt done reading." - Author: Alice Hoffman

Quotes About Rules In School

"I didnt know. I feel sometimes like…there are all these rules. Just to be a person. You know? Youre supposed to carry a shoulder bag, not a backpack. Youre supposed to wear headbands, or youre not supposed to wear headbands. Its okay to describe yourself as likeable, but its not okay to describe yourself as eloquent. You can sit in the front of the school bus, but you cant sit in the middle. Youre not supposed to be with a boy, even when he wants you to. I didnt know that. There are so many rules, and they dont make any sense, and I just cant learn them all" - Author: Leila Sales

Quotes About Strutting

"My theme is memory, that winged host that soared about me one grey morning of war-time. These memories, which are my life—for we possess nothing certainly except the past—were always with me. Like the pigeons of St. Marks, they were everywhere, under my feet, singly, in pairs, in little honey-voiced congregations, nodding, strutting, winking, rolling the tender feathers of their necks, perching sometimes, if I stood still, on my shoulder or pecking a broken biscuit from between my lips; until, suddenly, the noon gun boomed and in a moment, with a flutter and sweep of wings, the pavement was bare and the whole sky above dark with a tumult of fowl. Thus it was that morning." - Author: Evelyn Waugh
