Quotes About Hot Wheels

"My letters seeking a job, though truthful, diminished the full truth. Face would blanch if the facts had been complete: "Dear Sir," I thought. "Do you have a position for a journeyman burglar, con man, forger and car thief; also with experience as armed robber, pimp, card cheat and several other things. I smoked marijuana at twelve (in the 40s) and shot heroin at sixteen. I have no experience with LSD and methedrine. They came to popularity since my imprisonment. Ive buggered pretty young boys and feminine homosexuals (but only when locked up away from women). In the idiom of jails, prisons and gutters (some plush gutters) Im a motherfucker! Not literally, for I dont remember my mother. In my world the term, used as I used it, is a boast of being hell on wheels, outrageously unpredictable, a virtuoso of crime. Of course by being a motherfucker in that world Im a piece of garbage in yours. Do you have a job?" - Author: Edward Bunker

Quotes About New Month March

"Wolfgang Pauli, in the months before Heisenbergs paper on matrix mechanics pointed the way to a new quantum theory, wrote to a friend, "At the moment physics is again terribly confused. In any case, it is too difficult for me, and I wish I had been a movie comedian or something of the sort and had never heard of physics." That testimony is particularly impressive if contrasted with Paulis words less than five months later: "Heisenbergs type of mechanics has again given me hope and joy in life. To be sure it does not supply the solution to the riddle, but I believe it is again possible to march forward." - Author: Wolfgang Pauli Thomas S. Kuhn

Quotes About Trigon
