[I See The Last Two Millennia As Laid Out In Columns, Like A Reverse Ledger Sheet. It's As If I'm Standing At The Top Of The Twenty-first Century Looking Downwards To 2000. Future Centuries Float As A Gauzy Sheet Stretching Over To The Left. I Also See People, Architecture And Events Laid Out Chronologically In The Columns. When I Think Of The Year 1805, I See Trafalgar, Women In The Clothes Of That Era, Famous People Who Lived Then, The Building, Etc. The Sixth To Tenth Centuries Are Very Green, The Middle Ages Are Dark With Vibrant Splashes Of Red And Blue And The Sixteenth And Seventeenth Centuries Are Brown With Rich, Lush Colours In The Furniture And Clothing.]

"Either the future is subject to chance--in which case nobody, not even a god, can affect it one way or the other--or it is predestined, in which case foreknowledge cannot avert it." --Quintus Tullius Cicero"

Jeff Davidson Quotes

"A study at Cornell University found that low-level noise both lowered job motivation and increased stress levels. It appears as well that an open-office type of environment can contribute to musculoskeletal problems such as a stiff back or tense neck and even heart disease due to increased levels of epinephrine, a stress hormone."

Adolfo Bioy Casares Quotes

"-Ya me estás confundiendo pero sigamos. No bien te mueras vas a encontrarte en un sueño como el de cualquier noche.- Le digo la verdad: eso no me gusta. Pero usted ¿cómo lo sabe?- Habrás oído, quiero creer, que el alma es inmortal. Aunque entierren tu cuerpo el alma seguirá viviendo. Para prepararnos a esa vida soñamos. No busques. No hay otra explicación para los sueños. Son anticipos. Con una diferencia, es claro: Tienen despertar.- Casi nada la diferencia. Le juro que no le miento: lo que usted pinta no me gusta.- No temas. Todo depennde de tu voluntad. El sueño de la muerte no tiene por qué ser una pesadilla.- ¿Puede ser una pesadilla?- ¿Qué otra cosa es el infierno?"

"Young gentlemen, who are to display their knowledge to the world, should have every motive of emulation, should be formed into regular classes, should read and dispute together, should have all the honors, and, if one may say so, the pomp of learning set before them, to call up their ardor. It is their business, and they should apply to it as such."

Quotes About Cicatriz

"A lacerare e lacerarsi ci vuole un attimo.La pelle tira, leggermente arrossata dai cerotti. Mi accarezzo e affiora un sorriso. Calore. Pace interna o una cosa simile.

E allora, non guardatemi, vi prego non guardatemi, vi scongiuro non guardatemi.Non sono cose adatte a chi può respirare forte in un giorno di sole." - Author: Valentina Di Martino

Quotes About Natural Childbirth

"The desire to know the future gnaws at our bones. That is where it started, and might have ended, years ago.I had cast the stones, seeing their faces flicker and fall: Death, Love, Murder, Treachery, Hope. We are a treacherous people - half of our stones show betrayal and violence and death from those close, death from those far away. It is not so with other peoples. I have seen other sets that show only natural disasters: death from sickness, from age, the pain of a broken heart, loss in childbirth. And those stones are more than half full with pleasure and joy and plain, solid warnings like "You reap what you sow" and "Victory is not the same as satisfaction."Of course, we live in a land taken by force, by battle and murder and invasion. It is not so surprising that our stones reflect our history." - Author: Pamela Freeman

Quotes About Advertising Strategy

"IN THE WORLD OF advertising, every copywriter knows the power of two magic words: "Free!" and "New!" We see them in the supermarket, in the newspaper, on billboards. And consumers respond. In the church today, we are falling prey to the appeal of "New!" The old truths of the gospel dont seem spectacular enough. Were restless for the latest, greatest, newest teaching or technique. We pastors in particular seem to search for a shortcut or some dynamic new strategy that will fire up our churches." - Author: Jim Cymbala
