[..I Followed Her Out The Door And Watched Her Walk Down The Road Towards Home, Hers, And The Bright Yard Light, And Her Own Bed, And Our Parents, And I Stood There For A Long Time Because I Didn't Know Where Else To Go.I Stood There Long Enough To Feel The Chill Of The Night. The Sky Was A Blanket Of Stars.Indifferent. I Repeated The Ancient Song Of Nezahualcoytl. I Stood There Long Enough To Hear My Family Singing. Why Were They Singing At Two In The Morning? I Heard The Hight, Creaky Voice Of My Mother And The Off-key But Persistent Voices Of My Little Brothers.]

Lynn Hershman Leeson Quotes

"Invisibility--there are things we cant see now, that are there, that are embedded, that it really takes time in order to be able to see. There are many ghosts that are lurking around and lingering through us that takes the technology of another generation or so in order to uncover and show what those stains and strains and perceived flaws really were building towards"

"Through the judicious employment of symbols, diagrams, and calculations, mathematics enables us to acquire significant facts about extremely significant things (universal laws, even), not by first forging out into the cosmos with teams of scientists, but rather from the comforts and confines of coffee tables in our living rooms! p. 72"

Quotes About Engineering Mechanics

"Dictionaries, manuals, grammars, study guides and topic notes, classical authors and the entire book trade in de Viris, Quintus-Curtius, Sallust, and Livy peacefully crumbled to dust on the shelves of the old Hachette publishing house; but introductions to mathematics, textbooks on civil engineering, mechanics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, courses in commerce, finance, industrial arts- whatever concerned the market tendencies of the day - sold by the millions of copies." - Author: Jules Verne

Quotes About College Stress

"So, " Nathan said, attention focused on Adrian, "now that Vasilisas graduated, what are you going to do with yourself? You arent going to keep slumming with high school students, are you? Theres no point in you being there anymore. " "I dont know, " said Adrian lazily. "I kind of like hanging out with them. They think Im funnier than I really am. " "Unsurprising, " his father replied. "You arent funny at all. Its time you do something productive. If you arent going to go back to college, you should at least start sitting in on some of the family business meetings. Tatiana spoils you, but you could learn a lot from Rufus. " "True, " said Adrian deadpan."Id really like to know how he keeps his two mistresses a secret from his wife. " "Adrian!" snapped Daniella, a flush spilling over her pale cheeks" - Author: Richelle Mead

Quotes About Love Pain And Life

"Those who dont love themselves as they are rarely love life as it is either. Most people have come to prefer certain of lifes experiences and deny and reject others, unaware of the value of the hidden things that may come wrapped in plain or even ugly paper. In avoiding all pain and seeking comfort at all cost, we may be left without intimacy or compassion; in rejecting change and risk we often cheat ourselves of the quest; in denying our suffering we may never know our strength or our greatness. Or even that the love we have been given can be trusted. It is natural, even instinctive to prefer comfort to pain, the familiar to the unknown. But sometimes our instincts are not wise. Life usually offers us far more than our biases and preferences will allow us to have. Beyond comfort lie grace, mystery, and adventure. We may need to let go of our beliefs and ideas about life in order to have life." - Author: Rachel Naomi Remen

Quotes About Let Down

"Cant you just thank me and get over it?""Thank you." I waited, fuming and expectant."Youre not going to let it go, are you?""No.""In that case . . . I hope you enjoy disappointment."We scowled at each other in silence. I was the first to speak, trying to keep myself focused. I was in danger of being distracted by his livid, glorious face. It was like trying to stare down a destroying angel."Why did you even bother?" I asked frigidly.He paused, and for a brief moment his stunning face was unexpectedly vulnerable."I dont know," he whispered." - Author: Stephenie Meyer

Quotes About Mummy

"...the Beatles were hard men too. Brian Epstein cleaned them up for mass consumption, but they were anything but sissies. They were from Liverpool, which is like Hamburg or Norfolk, Virginia--a hard, sea-farin town, all these dockers and sailors around all the time who would beat the piss out of you if you so much as winked at them. Ringos from the Dingle, which is like the f***ing Bronx. The Rolling Stones were the mummys boys--they were all college students from the outskirts of London. They went to starve in London, but it was by choice, to give themselves some sort of aura of disrespectability. I did like the Stones, but they were never anywhere near the Beatles--not for humour, not for originality, not for songs, not for presentation. All they had was Mick Jagger dancing about. Fair enough, the Stones made great records, but they were always s**t on stage, whereas the Beatles were the gear." - Author: Lemmy Kilmister
