"How can you think that? How can you believe God would let us go through this hell?" "Because you have to think of the alternative. If it hadnt happened the way it did, youd have been on that plane. Youd really be gone now. Thered be no second chances. Thered be no Reed."

Eddie Lenihan Quotes

"Thus Betty scraped through a second bitter crisis, one that might have shattered a character more brittle. But she had grown sharp as bile from this, her latest shock, and each passing day increased her edge. Worse, there was no one now to notice her shrinking humanity and cry halt...by turns she would become lightheaded, cackling away like one insane. It was the lightness of one who has nothing more to lose."

Quotes About Cute Mississippi

"For all this talk about us being a nation at war with child abuse, and for all the media hype about witch-hunts and false allegations — and dont ever let anyone use the word witch-hunts about this; there were no witches — the fact remains that in 1994, it is extremely difficult to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse. And the external forces of denial are almost overwhelming. If a case as verified as mine meets with denial, I dread to think about the experience of people who dont have the kind of corroboration that I do. And I really worry that were getting close to a point where its going to be impossible to prosecute child molesters, because we dont believe children, and now we dont believe adults.

Quotes About Human Extinction

"The reductio ad absurdum of M.D.s view, I argued, was that science devises ever bloodier means of war until humanitys powers of destruction overcome our powers of creation and our civilization drives itself to extinction. M.D. embraced my objection with mordant glee. Precisely. Our will to power, our science, and those v. faculties that elevated us from apes, to saves, to modern man, are the same faculties thatll snuff out Homo Sapiens before this century is out! Youll probably live to see it happen, you fortunate son. What a symphonic crescendo thatll be, eh?" - Author: David Mitchell

Quotes About Seeing The World Clearly

"The positivists have a simple solution: the world must be divided into that which we can say clearly and the rest, which we had better pass over in silence. But can anyone conceive of a more pointless philosophy, seeing that what we can say clearly amounts to next to nothing? If we omitted all that is unclear, we would probably be left completely uninteresting and trivial tautologies." - Author: Werner Heisenberg
