Raymond S Moore Quotes

"Parents should also question much of the contemporary emphasis on special materials and equipment for learning in a childs environment. A clutter of toys can be more confusing than satisfying to a child. On the other hand, natural situations, with opportunieties to explore, seldom overstimulate or trouble a small child. Furthermore, most children will find greater satisfaction and demonsstrate greater learning from things they make and do with their parents or other people than from elaborate toys or learning materials. And there is no substitute for solitude - in the sandpile, mud puddle, or play area - for a yound child to work out his own fantasies. Yet this privilege is often denied in our anxiety to institutionalize children."

Leo Baekeland Quotes

Kevin Dutton Quotes

"Da wir heute jedoch in einer zunehmend säkularisierten Gesellschaft leben und das virtuelle Universum sich immer weiter ausdehnt, haben wir es mit einer völlig anderen Spezies zu tun: mit Popstars und Schauspielern sowie Medien- und Videospielmonguln, die statt Würde auszustrahlen, diese nun auf dem Altar der kreativen Schizophrenie opfern."

John Romero Quotes

"You have to design and program differently. Combat action in an MMO is so different to combat in a first-person shooter."

Karen Davis Quotes

"I have been impressed by the realization that a few men have virtually decided what experiences count and even exist in the world. The language of Western science--the reigning construct of male hegemony--precludes the ability to express the experiential realities it talks about. Virtually all the actual experiences of this world, expressed through the manifest and mysterious characteristics of all the different beings, are unrepresented in the stainless steel edicts of experts. Where is the voice of the voiceless in the scientific literature, including the literature of environmental ethics?"

Eduardo Halfon Quotes

"O perigo de penetrar apaixonadamente no mundo dos livros é o de nos tornarmos, nós próprios, no aglomerado de pequenos excertos literários."

Gary Hart Quotes

"Follow me around. I dont care. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. Theyd be very bored."

Jeremy C Shipp Quotes

"Soapy paced back and forth on his soap dish. "Life is a strange thing. I get rubbed, massaged, every day of my life. And it feels really, really good, you know? But... but I cant ignore the fact that eventually Ill be massaged into nothingness. How can something that feels so good be the cause of something so bad?"

Quotes About Knowing People

"Quentin Schultze says that we have become like tourists who are so enamored by our mode of transportation that we cruise through nation after nation largely indifferent to the people and the cultures around us. We have our passports filled with the little stamps telling people just how many places weve been, but what is the purpose of being in places if we have not experienced them? And what is the purpose of knowing people if we do not care to know them on anything more than a surface level? The trend today is toward these fleeting, surface-level interactions" - Author: Tim Challies

Quotes About Zion

"Che fantasmagoria è mai il nostro spirito, luogo di convegno di tante cose dissimili!

Quotes About One Sidedness

"Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology.
