Jim Taylor Quotes

"True and lasting motivation cant, unfortunately, come from outside. It must arise from a very deep place within us. This life-changing motivation verily forces its way out of us, demanding that we take action. That is the motivation that propels people to monumental acts of courage, willpower, perseverance, and, ultimately, change."

Joanna Newsom Quotes

"I am always trying to write."

Bilal Tanweer Quotes

"These stories, I realized, were lost. Nobody was going to know that part of the city but as a place where a bomb went off. The bomb was going to become the story of this city. Thats how we lose the city - thats how our knowledge of what the world is is taken away from us - when what we know is blasted into rubble and what is created in its place bears no resemblance to what there was and we are left strangers in a place we knew, in a place we ought to have known."

Quotes About Tanka

"Widzenie i tak jest w większości oszustwem. Tak naprawdę nie widzimy nic, w wysokiej rozdzielczości jest tylko parę stopni tam, gdzie skupia się oko. Reszta pola to mgła – tylko światło i ruch. Ruch powoduje zogniskowanie. A nasze oczy cały czas latają. To się nazywa „ruchy sarkadyczne". Obraz się rozmazuje, bo ruch jest za szybki, żeby mózg nadążył z integrowaniem klatek, więc między przystankami oko po prostu się wyłącza. Rejestruje tylko te izolowane stop-klatki, ale mózg wycina puste kadry i montuje materiał, dając mózgowi... złudzenie ciągłości. (…) I wiesz co jest naprawdę niesamowite? Jeśli coś porusza się tylko podczas tych przerw, mózg po prostu to ignoruje. To coś jest niewidzialne." - Author: Peter Watts

Quotes About Mandrake

"Monsters can help us by giving a tangible form to our secret fears. It is less widely appreciated today that ‘wonders such as the unicorn legitimize our hopes. But all imaginary animals, to some degree all animals, are ultimately both monsters and wonders, which assist us by deflecting and absorbing our uncertainties . It is hard to tell ‘imaginary animals from symbolic, exemplary, heraldic, stylized, poetic, literary, or stereotypical ones. What is reality? Until we answer that question with confidence, a sharp differentiation between real animals and imaginary ones will remain elusive. There is some yeti in every ape, and a bit of Pegasus in every horse. Men and women are not only part angel and part demon, as the old cliché goes; they are also part centaur, part werewolf, part mandrake, and part sphinx." - Author: Boria Sax

Quotes About Polyester

"One lesson I got from Gandhi, Be the change you want to see, haunts me. I just feel like I cant keep stomping around pointing the finger at BP when I am supporting the oil industry with my very own dollars and actions by buying their products, helping to pay their mortgage - plastic is from oil... polyester, shower curtains." - Author: Kristin Bauer van Straten

Quotes About Death Of A Friends Child

"You know, there was a time when childbirth was possibly the most terrifying thing you could do in your life, and you were literally looking death in the face when you went ahead with it. And so this is a kind of flashback to a time when thats what every woman went through. Not that they got ripped apart, but they had no guarantees about whether they were going to live through it or not. You know, I recently read - and I dont read nonfiction, generally - Becoming Jane Austen. Thats the one subject that would get me to go out and read nonfiction. And the authors conclusion was that one of the reasons Jane Austen might not have married when she did have the opportunity...well, she watched her very dear nieces and friends die in childbirth! And it was like a death sentence: You get married and you will have children. You have children and you will die. (Laughs) I mean, it was a terrifying world." - Author: Stephenie Meyer

Quotes About The Importance Of Knowing Your History

"The convoluted wording of legalisms grew up around the necessity to hide from ourselves the violence we intend toward each other. Between depriving a man of one hour from his life and depriving him of his life there exists only a difference of degree. You have done violence to him, consumed his energy. Elaborate euphemisms may conceal your intent to kill, but behind any use of power over another the ultimate assumption remains: "I feed on your energy." - Author: Frank Herbert

Quotes About Rain And Sun

"The new country lay open before me: there were no fences in those days, and I could choose my own way over the grass uplands, trusting the pony to get me home again. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had a sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do not confirm Jakes story but, insist that the sunflower was native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom." - Author: Willa Cather
