"I dont want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am?

Im a machine, and I can know much more.—John Cavil, Cylon Model Number One, "No Exit"

Quotes About Juventude

"É que a história, no progresso do tempo, faz o historiador muito mais do que é feita por ele. Se saiu de mim em primeiro lugar, da minha tempestade (ainda perturbada) de juventude, deu-me muito mais em força e em luz, mesmo em calor fecundo, em força real de ressuscitar o passado.

Quotes About Complexity Of Love

"Id write and read and let myself, a little at a time, step down into myself- like a stairway down into a dark, intimate kiva- where the work of vigil is taking place, the necessary attending. I imagine theres a little fire burning in there, a few steadily glowing embers, and a quiet chant going on, from me, from some singer in me, honoring and accompanying Ws soul, which is with him as he is making his passage. ..theres a leavetaking in process, a movement towards increasing simplicity, away from complexity, activity, expectation. The bout of paranoia, with a childlike quality of being threatened, seems part of that-like a day or two when he couldnt just let go and float on the energies of other people, who are bearing him up-but had to doubt them, struggle. So much better when he can trust and float. Theres enough love around him to carry him now…" - Author: Mark Doty

Quotes About Folly Of Youth

"But arent all great quests folly? El Dorado and the Fountain of Youth and the search for intelligent life in the cosmos-- we know whats out there. Its what isnt that truly compels us. Technology may have shrunk the epic journey to a couple of short car rides and regional jet lags-- four states and twelve hundred miles traversed in an afternoon-- but true quests arent measured in time or distance anyway, so much as in hope. There are only two good outcomes for a quest like this, the hope of the serendipitous savant-- sail for Asia and stumble on America-- and the hope of scarecrows and tin men: that you find out you had the thing you sought all along." - Author: Jess Walter

Quotes About Classes College

"Any of you would go around the world for the sealing ordinance if you knew its importance, if you realized how great it is. No distance, no shortage of funds, no situation would ever keep you from being married in the holy temple of the Lord.There is no bias nor prejudice in this doctrine. It is a matter of following a certain program to reach a definite goal. If you fail in following a program, you fail in attaining the goal.

Certainly you cannot expect the eternal program to be less exacting." - Author: Spencer W. Kimball
