Nicolette Day Quotes

"The next three hours went by in a mind-numbing haze. By the time the cab pulled up to the airport terminal, she was pissed. Not at him though. She wanted to be-shed fallen back in love with him, and he couldnt even stick around to have a waffle and say good-bye?-but she couldnt."

Jean Claude Killy Quotes

"To win you have to risk loss."

Alex Shearer Quotes

"Mrs Chadwick used to say the same about my English, about going round the houses. But to be honest, I like going round the houses. And as for beginning at the beginning, the reason I never start there is that I dont know where the beginning is, and thats the honest truth. And anyway, Ive never known anything in my whole life that ever started at the beginning. Things arent like that. They usually start about halfway through, or near the end, and then work their way backwards, thats how must things are."

Susan Shapiro Barash Quotes

"Although previous studies had suggested that friendship--male and female--could be a powerful antidote to stress, more recent research indicates that broken promises, dashed expectations, and other side effects of friendship gone wrong can actually raise the level of stress in our lives, often to disastrous effect."

Carolina Lozano Quotes

"Somos dos mundos ajenos que, por razones que no comprendo, han tenido la suerte de gozar de un acercamiento. Que seguramente no se repetirá, y por tanto debo aprovechar."

Lynne McTaggart Quotes

"People can not be separated from their environment. Living consciousness is not an isolated unit. Human consciousness is increasing the order of the rest of the world and has an incredible power to heal ourselves and the world: in a certain sense we make the world as such, as we wish."

Albie Sachs Quotes

"Severability is an important concept in the context of the relations between this Court and Parliament; like reading down, it is an instrument of judicial restraint which reduces the danger of producing an overbroad judicial reaction to overbroad legislation."

Vanessa Wu Quotes

"Perhaps writing a story or a novel was not something that should be done for money, or to win praise, but for the sheer sensual pleasure of it. I liked that idea. It made me want to write lots of stories, to give myself that pleasure."

Kipling Swehla Quotes

"Discomfort it temporary. A photo is forever."

Quotes About Imaginary Life

"We have inhabited both the actual and the imaginary realms for a long time. But we dont live in either place the way our parents or ancestors did.

Quotes About Uncomfortable Silence

"The door smiled. It was the first time Id seen it do that. Pierre Anthon left the door ajar like a grinning abyss that would swallow me up into the outside with him if only I let myself go. Smiling at whom? At me, at us. I looked around the class. The uncomfortable silence told me the others had felt it too.We were supposed to amount to something." - Author: Janne Teller

Quotes About Despise

"Let no man despise the secret hints and notices of danger, which sometimes are given him, when he may think there is no possibility of its being real. That such hints and notices are given us, I believe few that have made any observations of things can deny; that they are certain discoveries of an invisible world, and a converse of spirits, we cannot doubt; and if the tendency of them seems to be to warn us of danger, why should we not suppose they are from some friendly agent, whether supreme, or inferior, or subordinate, is not the question; and that they are given for our good?" - Author: Daniel Defoe

Quotes About Pecuchet

"Then they wondered if there were men in the stars. Why not? And as creation is harmonious, the inhabitants of Sirius ought to be huge, those of Mars middle-sized, those of Venus very small. Unless it is the same everywhere. There are businessmen, police up there; people trade, fight, dethrone their kings. Some shooting stars suddenly slid past, describing a course in the sky like the parabola of a monstrous rocket. ‘My Word, said Bouvard, ‘look at those worlds disappearing. Pecuchet replied: ‘If our world in its turn danced about, the citizens of the stars would be no more impressed than we are now. Ideas like that are rather humbling. ‘What is the point of it all? ‘Perhaps there isnt a point. ‘Yet… and Pecuchet repeated the word two or three times, without finding anything more to say." - Author: Gustave Flaubert

Quotes About The Human Spine

"Other anatomical changes associated with long-duration space flight are definitely negative: the immune system weakens, the heart shrinks because it doesnt have to strain against gravity, eyesight tends to degrade, sometimes markedly (no ones exactly sure why yet). The spine lengthens as the little sacs of fluid between the vertebrae expand, and bone mass decreases as the body sheds calcium. Without gravity, we dont need muscle and bone mass to support our own weight, which is what makes life in space so much fun but also so inherently bad for the human body, long-term." - Author: Chris Hadfield

Quotes About Meat Pies

"It was not that long ago that dinner had meant swallowing down whatever you could get your filthy hands on. . . Dinner meant something different here. It meant half a days work for two women. It mean polished crystal and silver, it meant a change of dress for the diners and a special suit of clothes for the servants to serve it up in. Here, dinner meant delay; it meant extending, with all the complexities of preparation and all those rituals of civility, the gap between hunger and its satisfaction. Here, now, it seemed that hunger itself might be relished, because its cessation was guaranteed; there always was - there always would be - meat and vegetables and dumplings and cakes and pies and plates and forks and pleases and thank yous, and endless plates of bread and butter." - Author: Jo Baker
