Linus Pauling Quotes

"Science is the search for truth, that is the effort to understand the world: it involves the rejection of bias, of dogma, of revelation, but not the rejection of morality."

Rene Crevel Quotes

"Straight lines go too quickly to appreciate the pleasures of the journey. They rush straight to their target and then die in the very moment of their triumph without having thought, loved, suffered or enjoyed themselves. Broken lines do not know what they want. With their caprices they cut time up, abuse routes, slash the joyous flowers and split the peaceful fruits with their corners. It is another story with curved lines. The song of the curved line is called happiness."

Edward Bunker Quotes

"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?"

Quotes About Jaguar Animal

"Japan and Hong Kong are steadily whittling away at the last of the elephants, turning their tusks (so much more elegant left on the elephant) into artistic carvings. In much the same way, the beautiful furs from leopard, jaguar, Snow leopard, Clouded leopard and so on, are used to clad the inelegant bodies of thoughtless and, for the most part, ugly women. I wonder how many would buy these furs if they knew that on their bodies they wore the skin of an animal that, when captured, was killed by the medieval and agonizing method of having a red-hot rod inserted up its rectum so as not to mark the skin." - Author: Gerald Durrell

Quotes About Amanah

"Penduduk Malaysia mudah teruja oleh pilihan raya kecil atau besar kerana politik sudah menjadi budaya bagi kebanyakan orang, dan profesion bagi sesetengah orang. Tidak semua rakyat memahami pilihan raya sebagai satu proses demokrasi bagi memilih pemimpin yang amanah untuk berkorban memperjuangkan kesejahteraan rakyat dan negara. Orang lebih tertarik pada peristiwa perdebatan kempen, hujah menjatuhkan lawan, dan lebih-lebih lagi apabila ada tanda-tanda kemungkinan calon pembangkang menewaskan calon parti kerajaan." - Author: Baharuddin Zainal

Quotes About Cardinal

"Other priests, he knew, found an intense pleasure in the raw, salty dialect of peasant conversation. They picked up pearls of wisdom and experience over a farmhouse table or a cup of wine in a workingmans kitchen. They talked with equal familiarity to the rough-tongued whores of Trastevere and the polished signori of Parioli. They enjoyed the ribald humor of the fish market as much as the wit of a Cardinals dinner table. They were good priests too, and they did much good for their people, with a singular satisfaction to themselves." - Author: Morris L. West

Quotes About Comradeship In War

"When John left the band, I resented him for not being my friend and for abandoning our musical comradeship. But all the time that he was out of the band and going through his anguish, I prayed for him constantly. From going to meetings Id learned that one of the reasons that alcoholics get loaded is because they harbor resentments. One of the techniques they teach to get rid of a resentment toward somebody is to pray for him or her to get everything that you want for yourself in life-to be loved, to be successful, to be healthy, to be rich, to be wonderful, to be happy, to be alive with the light and the love of the universe. Its a paradox, but it works. You sit there and pray for the person you cant stand to get everything on earth that you would want for yourself, and one day youre like I dont feel anything bad toward this person." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Vast

"We live in a vast and awesome universe in which, daily, suns are made and worlds destroyed, where humanity clings to an obscure clod of rock. The significance of our lives and our fragile realm derives from our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of lifes meaning." - Author: Carl Sagan

Quotes About Users In Life

"You can neither lie to a neighbourhood park, nor reason with it. Artists conceptions and persuasive renderings can put pictures of life into proposed neighbourhood parks or park malls, and verbal rationalizations can conjure up users who ought to appreciate them, but in real life only diverse surroundings have the practical power of inducing a natural, continuing flow of life and use." - Author: Jane Jacobs

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
