James Carlos Blake Quotes

"Men tend to remember the best things about the women theyve loved and to forget the worst, which is why so many men make the same mistakes with women again and again. Women tend to forget the best things about the men theyve loved and to remember the worst, which is why so many women become bitter about men."

Michael J Kannengieser Quotes

"The average author hawks their books at many events. They are vigilant promoters, waiting for a breakthrough. They do this, or else watch their novel wither away."

Rudolf Flesch Quotes

"What are we after when we open one of those books? What is it that makes a classic a classic? ... in old-fashioned terms, the answer is that it wll elevate your spirit. And thats why I cant take much stock in the idea of going through a list of books or covering a fixed number of selections, or anyway striving for the blessed state of having read this, or the other. Having read a book means nothing. Reading a book may be the most tremendous experience of your life; having read it is an item in your memory, part of your receding past... Why we have that odd faith in the magic of having read a book, I dont know. We dont apply the same principle elsewhere: We dont believe in having heard Mendelssohns violin concerto...I say, dont read the classics -- try to discover your own classics; every life has its own."

James T Walsh Quotes

"Our soldiers have done a valiant effort in fighting terrorism and bringing a semblance of law and order to the chaos in the region and it would be shortsighted to lay out a specific timetable to bring U.S. troops home prematurely before their mission is accomplished."

Dwayne Johnson Quotes

"I love the 3D revolution. I love the technology today that continues to push the envelope, continues break the new ground, and continues to raise the bar."

Garik Israelian Quotes

"Connection between life and radioactive nuclei is straightforward. No life without tectonic activity, without volcanic activity. And we know very well that geothermal energy is mostly produced by decay of uranium, thorium, and potassium."

Kim Yannayon Quotes

"Why stand around and wait for life to find you. Go out and search it."

Charles Lapworth Quotes

"Nothing perhaps has so retarded the reception of the higher conclusions of Geology among men in general, as ... [the] instinctive parsimony of the human mind in matters where time is concerned."

Ilse Aichinger Quotes

"The distance to the corner shops of childhood becomes unfathomable, immeasurable; the candy bars have changed. And change has changed."

Angel Haze Quotes

"I can choose to be happy, or choose to be miserable every day - waiting until I die."

Quotes About Parents And Children Fighting

"We never replace Jesus in our childrens lives. We dont even do the work of Jesus in our childrens lives. We do the work of parents, which is to point our children to Jesus. And then Jesus does his own work--with or without us." - Author: Leslie Leyland Fields

Quotes About Degrees

"Think how nature makes things compared to how we humans make things." We talked about how animals dont just preserve the next generation; they typically preserve the environment for the ten-thousandth generation. While human industrial processes can produce Kevlar, it takes a temperature of thousands of degrees to do it, and the fiber is pulled through sulfuric acid. In contrast, a spider makes its silk - which per gram is several times stronger than steel - at room temperature in water." - Author: William Powers

Quotes About Lent Catholic

"No doubt they all Got What Was Coming To Them. All those pathetically eager acid freaks who thought they could buy Peace and Understanding for three bucks a hit. But their loss and failure is ours too. What Leary took down with him was the central illusion of a whole life-style that he helped create...a generation of permanent cripples failed seekers who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of the Acid Culture: the desperate assumption that somebodyor at least some force is tending that Light at the end of the tunnel. This is the same cruel and paradoxically benevolent bullshit that has kept the Catholic Church going for so many centuries." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Adorable Things

"Hey, pal," Matthew whispered. He was the only person who could get away with calling Ronan pal. Matthew Lynch was a bear of a boy, square and solid and earnest. His head was covered with soft, golden curls completely unlike any of his other family members. And in his case, the perfect Lynch teeth were framed by an easy, dimpled smile. He had two brands of smile: the one that was preceded by a shy dip of his chin, a dimple, and then BAM, smile. And the one that teased for a moment before BAM, an infectious laugh. Females of all ages called him adorable. Males of all ages called him buddy. Matthew failed at many more things than either of his older brothers, but unlike Declan or Ronan, he always tried his hardest.Ronan had dreamt one thousand nightmares about something happening to him." - Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Quotes About Theatre

"Gus is the Cat at the Theatre Door.His name, as I ought to have told you before,Is really Asparagus. Thats such a fussTo pronounce, that we usually call him just Gus.His coats very shabby, hes thin as a rake,And he suffers from palsy that makes his paw shake.Yet he was, in his youth, quite the smartest of Cats —But no longer a terror to mice or to rats.For he isnt the Cat that he was in his prime;Though his name was quite famous, he says, in his time.And whenever he joins his friends at their club(which takes place at the back of the neighbouring pub)He loves to regale them, if someone else pays,With anecdotes drawn from his palmiest days.For he once was a Star of the highest degree —He has acted with Irving, hes acted with Tree.And he likes to relate his success on the Halls,Where the Gallery once gave him seven cat-calls.But his grandest creation, as he loves to tell,Was Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell." - Author: T.S. Eliot
