[I Said I Didn't Think It Would Be A Collectivist State So Much As A Wilderness In Which Most People Lived Hand To Mouth, And The Rich Would Live Like Princes - Better Than The Rich Had Ever Lived, Except That Their Lives Would Constantly Be In Danger From The Hungry Predatory Poor. All The Technology Would Serve The Rich, But They Would Need It For Their Own Protection And To Assure Their Continued Prosperity.]

Willie Nelson Quotes

"I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?"

Suzannah Dunn Quotes

"...some days [Thomas] and I had almost no time at all, but still we did it. Knowingly, unapologetically, quick in the pursuit of something that seemed quite separate from ourselves. I had to have him inside me every day; a missed day was a missing day, the world crumpled. My blood was different in my veins now, luxuriously silty, peppered and precious. My body was a different body and knew what it needed. There was a sense of fit between us: not merely physical, although there definitely was that. I didnt know how I lived the minutes when he wasnt inside me, when there was no glittery rub of him inside me. I crammed him into me, hauled him in. My urgency shocked and delighted me."

Martin Booth Quotes

Luke Harding Quotes

"My four years in Russia end, then, in dramatic fashion: with a textbook Soviet-style expulsion. I am the first western staff correspondent to suffer this fate since the end of the Cold War. Im stunned. But my expulsion is not, I reflect, a surprise. Its something I have always accepted as a real, if far-fetched, possibility."

Barbra Streisand Quotes

"Doubt can motivate you, so dont be afraid of it. Confidence and doubt are at two ends of the scale, and you need both. They balance each other out."

Laurent Quotes

"Both died, ignored by most; they neither sought nor found public favour, for high roads never lead there. Laurent and Gerhardt never left such roads, were never tempted to peruse those easy successes which, for strongly marked characters, offer neither allure nor gain. Their passion was for the search for truth; and, preferring their independence to their advancement, their convictions to their interests, they placed their love for science above that of their worldly goods; indeed above that for life itself, for death was the reward for their pains. Rare example of abnegation, sublime poverty that deserves the name nobility, glorious death that France must not forget!"

Quotes About Managing Relationships

"Many aspects of our screen-bound lives are bad for our social skills simply because we get accustomed to controlling the information that comes in, managing our relationships electronically, deleting stuff that doesnt interest us. We edit the world; we select from menus; we pick and choose; our social group focuses on us and disintegrates without us. This makes it rather confusing for us when we step outdoors and discover that other peoples behaviour cant be deleted with a simple one-stroke command or dragged to the trash icon." - Author: Lynne Truss

Quotes About Steve

"I was in love with the British The Office, so even though I love Steve Carell, when they were going to remake it, I was like, This is not going to work. Im going to completely veto this show. I am not going to watch this show. But now, I love it." - Author: Sam Huntington

Quotes About Citizens Of The World

"Ask questions, no, screech questions out loud - while kneeling in front of the electric doors at Safeway, demanding other citizens ask questions along with you - while chewing up old textbooks and spitting the words onto downtown sidewalks - outside the Planet Hollywood, outside the stock exchange, and outside the Gap. Grind questions onto the glass on photocopiers. Scrape challenges onto old auto parts and throw them off bridges so that future people digging in the mud will question the world, too. Carve eyeballs into tire treads and onto shoe leathers so that your every trail speaks of thinking and questioning and awareness. Design molecules that crystallize into question marks. Make bar codes print out fables, not prices. You cant even throw away a piece of litter unless it has a question mark stamped on it - a demand for people to reach a finer place" - Author: Douglas Coupland

Quotes About Attachment

"Justine, you may remember, was a great favourite of yours; and I recollect you once remarked that if you were in an ill humour, one glance from Justine could dissipate it, for the same reason that Ariosto gives concerning the beauty of Angelica —she looked so frank-hearted and happy. My aunt conceived a great attachment for her, by which she was induced to give her an education superior to that which she had at first intended. This benefit was fully repaid; Justine was the most grateful little creature in the world: I do not mean that she made any professions I never heard one pass her lips, but you could see by her eyes that she almost adored her protectress. Although her disposition was gay and in many respects inconsiderate, yet she paid the greatest attention to every gesture of my aunt. She thought her the model of all excellence and endeavoured to imitate her phraseology and manners, so that even now she often reminds me of her." - Author: Mary Shelley

Quotes About Colloquialisms

"So. You in?" Niccolo looked from side to side. "In? In what?" "Yes. In. Are you onboard? Ready to throw down. Roll the dice. Ride that crazy cow called life and make her your bitch?" Niccolo frowned. Her colloquialisms were simply offensive. And this coming from a ruthless vampire. "You are asking if I am committed. Sì?" "Siii." She rolled her eyes." - Author: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
