Nick Webb Quotes

"long middle finger resembling a twig that it could use for probing for grubs. There is a telling example of convergent evolution when an unrelated species (the Long-Fingered Possum from Papua New Guinea) devised a similar strategy to address the same problem. (Douglas was very intrigued by the implications of convergence. What need is there to posit a designer if the operation of random forces, constrained by the reality of the world, produces the same elegant solution, as if there were no choice in the matter?) We monkeys have"

Quotes About Advantages Of Science

"[L]uxury always comes at someone elses expense. One of the many advantages of civilization is that one doesnt generally have to see that, if one doesnt wish. Youre free to enjoy its benefits without troubling your conscience. (Ancillary Justice)" - Author: Anne Leckie

Quotes About Police Dogs

"As a southerner born after the epic events of the civil rights movement, Ive always wondered how on earth people of good will could have conceivably lived with Jim Crow - with the daily degradations, the lynchings in plain sight, and, as the movement gathered force, with the fire hoses and the police dogs and the billy clubs." - Author: Jon Meacham

Quotes About Toyla

"The adult world may seem a cold and empty place, with no fairies and no Father Christmas, no Toyland or Narnia, no Happy Hunting Ground where mourned pets go, and no angels - guardian or garden variety. But there are also no devils, no hellfire, no wicked witches, no ghosts, no haunted houses, no daemonic possession, no bogeymen or ogres. Yes, Teddy and Dolly turn out not to be really alive. But there are warm, live, speaking, thinking, adult bedf ellows to hold, and many of us find it a more rewarding kind of love than the childish affection for stuffed toys, however soft and cuddly they may be." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Melomani

"Chiar melomanii îl irită, oamenii aceia maceraţi de o singură patimă, neputincioşi să trăiască fără muzică, fără concupiscenţă fonică, palizi şi rafinaţi, cu ochii extatici sau orbi, injectaţi de voluptate, adunându-se unii lângă alţii şi abandonându-se viciului, fără pudoare, fără reculegere, juisând în public, probabil felicitându-se de sensibilitatea lor muzicală. Sunt afemeiaţi, invertiţi sau masochişti ai spiritului; spiritul, de obicei, e ponderat şi are iniţiativa asupra obiectelor, constrânge şi purifică senzaţiile, dar la ei spiritul e biciuit de voluptate, e posedat de inspiraţia vreunui sentiment uriaş (toţi compozitorii au fost sentimentali, pasionaţi şi abulici, chiar Beethoven)." - Author: Mircea Eliade

Quotes About Without You

"Clent, however, suppressed any sense of pity without the slightest difficulty. His brain was busy with the icy clockwork of calculation. If only this young womans fears were justified! Beamabeth Marlebourne would be unlikely to threaten anybody, locked away inside the Lucks cell for the rest of her life. Such a fate had a tempting poetry to it too, given that she really was the Luck of Toll, and had been all her life." - Author: Frances Hardinge

Quotes About Unique Gifts

"Because when I can believe in a villain, I can fear them. My pulse races, I worry about the heroes, I read through my fingers, and flinch when disaster strikes. I exhale my relief when all is well, and I really feel it when they fall in love. No matter how fantastic the world, how unique the magic thats written into it- I have to believe in the characters before I can believe in their gifts." - Author: Saundra Mitchell

Quotes About Car Crashes

"Gabbe stepped forward. "Cams right. Ive heard the Scale speak of these shifts." She was tugging on the sleeves of her pale yellow cashmere cardigan as if she would never get warm. "Theyre called timequakes. They are ripples in our reality.""And the closer he gets," Roland added, with his usual understated wisdom, "the closer we are to the terminus of his Fall, the more frequent and the more severe the timequakes will become. Time is faltering in preparation for rewriting itself.""Like the way your computer freezes up more and more frequently before the hard drive crashes and erases your twenty-page term paper?" Miles said. Everyone looked at him in befuddlement. "What?" he asked. "Angels and demons dont do homework?" - Author: Lauren Kate

Quotes About Resourcefulness

"Dick tried to rest - the struggle would come presently at home and he might have to sit a long time, restating the universe for her. A "schizophrêne" is well named as a split personality - Nicole was alternately a person to whom nothing need be explained and one to whom nothing could be explained. It was necessary to treat her with active and affirmative insistence, keeping the road to reality always open, making the road to escape harder going. But the brilliance, the versatility of madness is akin to the resourcefulness of water seeping through, over and around a dike. It requires the united front of many people to work against it." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Glass Shattering

"No glass slippers, just a glass heart shattering into a million slivers of regret." - Author: Donna Cooner

Quotes About Swallowing

"May the United Nations ever be vigilant and potent to defeat the swallowing up of any nation, at any time, by any means-by armies with banners, by force or by fraud, by tricks or by midnight treachery." - Author: Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.
