Tanigawa Nagaru Quotes

"Wisdom, ambition, sadness, joy, malice, grief, amazement, all the emotions which blaze within the human soul may be recorded on a page. Nestled in a sheaf of paper sleeps an infinity beyond the limits of the universe. Just by opening a single page, we may fly into that infinity."

Edward Bach Quotes

"The main reason for the failure of the modern medical science is that it is dealing with results and not causes. Nothing more than the patching up of those attacked and the burying of those who are slain, without a thought being given to the real strong hold."

John Leeson Quotes

"Dick Mills was in charge of sound effects and all the rest then, and he put the voice through a ring modulator or whatever gizmos hed got at the time to make it sound a little more electronic."

Jean Bethke Elshtain Quotes

"There is much: recognition of the fact that human beings live indeterminate and incomplete lives; recognition of the power exerted over and upon us by our own habits and memories; recognition of the ways in which the world presses in on all of us, for it is an intractable place where many things go awry and go astray, where one may all-too-easily lose ones very self. The epistemological argument is framed by faith, but it stands on its own as an account of willing, nilling, memory, language, signs, affections, delight, the power and the limits of minds and bodies. To the extent that a prideful philosophy refuses to accept these, Augustine would argue, to that extent philosophy hates the human condition itself."

David E Kelley Quotes

"When I really have to push and grope and scratch and claw to make a story work, thats a telltale sign that maybe something conceptually isnt right."

Wouldnt world history be rewritten if just a few people had actually acted like individual free agents rather than mindless lemmings?" - Author: Joel Salatin

Quotes About Degrees And Education

"The critical habit of thought, if usual in society, will pervade all its mores, because it is a way of taking up the problems of life. Men educated in it cannot be stampeded by stump orators ... They are slow to believe. They can hold things as possible or probable in all degrees, without certainty and without pain. They can wait for evidence and weigh evidence, uninfluenced by the emphasis or confidence with which assertions are made on one side or the other. They can resist appeals to their dearest prejudices and all kinds of cajolery. Education in the critical faculty is the only education of which it can be truly said that it makes good citizens." - Author: William Graham Sumner
