W C Fields Quotes

"No doubt exists that all women are crazy; its only a question of degree."

Chris Hadfield Quotes

"Thats how I approach just about everything. I spend my life getting ready to play "Rocket Man." I picture the most demanding challenge; I visualize what I would need to know how to do to meet it; then I practice until I reach a level of competence where Im comfortable that Ill be able to perform. Its what Ive always done, ever since I decided I wanted to be an astronaut in 1969, and that conscious, methodical approach to preparation is the main reason I got to Houston. I never stopped getting ready. Just in case."

I took him by his arm, my face burning, and dragged him back to the field."

Quotes About Having Enough Sleep

"All of the myths of mankind are nothing but show business, the other man said to me during our initial meeting. Everything that we supposedly live by and supposedly die by — whether its religious scriptures or makeshift slogans — all of it is show business. The rise and fall of empires — show business. Science, philosophy, all of the disciplines under the sun, and even the sun itself, as well as all those other clumps of matter wobbling about in the blackness up there — he said to me, pointing out the window beside the coffee-shop booth in which we sat, show business, show business, show business. And what about dreams? I asked, thinking I might have hit upon an exception to his dogmatic view, or at least one that he would accept as such. You mean the dreams of the sort we are having at this moment or the ones we have when were fortunate enough to sleep?" - Author: Thomas Ligotti

Quotes About Litany

"Planting trees, I myself thought for a long time, was a feel-good thing, a nice but feeble response to our litany of modern-day environmental problems. In the last few years, though, as I have read many dozens of articles and books and interviewed scientists here and abroad, my thinking on the issue has changed. Planting trees may be the single most important ecotechnology that we have to put the broken pieces of our planet back together." - Author: Jim Robbins

Quotes About Sometimes All You Need

"He clears his throat, "Have you considered he sees you as a girl at school? Not all girls are whole when you meet them. Sometimes you have to help them get there. Right now, you are a broken girl. That doesnt mean that youll always be broken. That doesnt make you less of a girl." He clears his throat again, "Ill call the doc. Shell want to talk to you."The tears in my eyes dont come out. They stay in there like tiny kaleidoscopes, trying to make the world the way I need it to be. My words dont come right away either. I dont hear the click on his end when I whisper, "Im not broken." But he isnt there. He never really is. He is the master of not being there." - Author: Tara Brown

Quotes About California Sun

"It was there that I wanted, out there somewhere, when I sat elbow-to-elbow with my giggling friends and let my thoughts swirl up and away from the three-mile radius of our small town lives. In my head, I careened out of town and across state lines, until the landscape became strange and unfamiliar. I wanted to see all of it. Everything. The vast expanses of the flat Midwest, miles of horizontal earth with the curving horizon at its end. Strange, stunted trees and driftwood skeletons on the lonely windswept beaches of the farthest coasts. Towering oaks hung thick with the gray lace of Spanish moss, looming like hovering parents over shaded southern dirt. The California sun, dipping and disappearing into the ocean, tipping the waves with orange light." - Author: Kat Rosenfield
