"Keep God within His and anothers arms reach."

Willis R Whitney Quotes

"Necessity is not the mother of invention. Knowledge and experiment are its parents. It sometimes happens that successful search is made for unknown materials to fill well-recognized and predetermined requirements. It more often happens that the acquirement of knowledge of the previously unknown properties of a material suggests its trial for some new use. These facts strongly indicate the value of knowledge of properties of materials and indicate a way for research."

Bruce Weigl Quotes

"For the Wife Beaters WifeWith blue irises her face is blossomed. BlueCircling to yellow, circling to brown on her cheeks.The long bone of her jaw untrackedShe hides in our kitchen.He sleeps it off next door.Her chicken legs tucked under herShes frantic with lies, animatedBefore the swirling smoke.On her cigarette she leaves red prints, redLike a cut on the white cup.Like a skin she pulls her sweater around her.Shes cold,She brings the cold in with her.In our kitchen she hides.He sleeps it off next door, his greatBelly heaving with booze.Again and again she tells the storyAs if the details ever changed,As if blows to the face were somehowDifferent beating to beating.We reach for her but cant help.She retreats into her cold love of himAnd looks across the table at usAs if across a sea.Next door he claws out of sleep.She says she thinks shell do somethingAfter all, with her hair tonight."

Heidi Heitkamp Quotes

"Congressman Berg will repeatedly talk about Harry Reid and Barack Obama, and I find it interesting, because this morning, when I woke up and brushed my teeth, I looked in the mirror and I did not see a tall, African-American, skinny man. So lets make it clear that my priorities are North Dakota priorities."

Christine Aziz Quotes

"Desire overwhelmed me once she had gone. But it was not a desire for Homer. I had to return to the library. I could already smell the books muskiness and in my mind turned over pages with as many differing textures as a forest; pages that were brittle and fragile which had to be coaxed to turn; pages that were soft and scented, presenting their words as if the were a gift in the palm of a hand, and pages that fell open heavily of their own accord as if weighted by the importance of their message. But more than anything else I was compelled by their mystery, by all the stories they had yet to tell me.I have to go to the library, Homer. I have to be with the books."

Alice Thomas Ellis Quotes

"Men love women, women love children; children love hamsters– its quite hopeless."

Hermann Boerhaave Quotes

"It were indeed to be wishd that our art had been less ingenious, in contriving means destructive to mankind; we mean those instruments of war, which were unknown to the ancients, and have made such havoc among the moderns. But as men have always been bent on seeking each others destruction by continual wars; and as force, when brought against us, can only be repelled by force; the chief support of war, must, after money, be now sought in chemistry."

William Everson Quotes

"Poetry, like sanctity, is the orchestration of multiple attributes into vast, compelling wholes."

Quotes About Modernist Poetry

"Beowulf stands out as a poem which makes extensive use of this kind of figurative language. There are over one thousand compounds in the poem, totalling one-third of all the words in the text. Many of these compounds are kennings. The word to ken is still used in many Scottish and Northern English dialects, meaning to know. Such language is a way of knowing and of expressing meanings in striking and memorable ways; it has continuities with the kinds of poetic compounding found in nearly all later poetry but especially in the Modernist texts of Gerard Manley Hopkins and James Joyce." - Author: Ronald Carter

Quotes About Accountability In Business

"I crossed a line by making his familys personal business my own. But isnt that what friendship is? Isnt that what love is? Its more than caring and laughing and inspiring. Its about taking hurt and anger off peoples shoulders and helping to carry the weight. Its more important to love people on the worst days than their best." - Author: Katie Kacvinsky

Quotes About Loving Grandparents

"I was sitting in this small coffee shop a couple days ago and I saw this old man sitting at a table across from me. He looked so lonely, so sad. I was too, but it suddenly occurred to me that some people go through their whole lives never being loved or loving as deeply as I love you. Theres always going to be the chance that I could lose you in this lifetime. Theres nothing any of us can do about the possibility of loss. But in that moment, I decided that I was more interested in focusing on the great privilege Ive been given in having you at all. Ch. 32" - Author: Mia Sheridan

"Become a worry-slapper. Treat frets like mosquitoes. Do you procrastinate when a bloodsucking bug lights on your skin? Ill take care of it in a moment. Of course you dont! You give the critter the slap it deserves. Be equally decisive with anxiety." - Author: Max Lucado

Quotes About Blinded

"I believe having a vision in mind, a goal lets say, is a good thing. Unfortunately, so many of us are blinded by the greatness of our vision that paralysis and inaction sets in. What I try to do is focus on the individual steps, the moments if you will, and let them lead one to the next. The vision that eventually appears may not be exactly what you had in mind, but it will be the right one for you, because you did the work and you took the necessary action." - Author: Charles F. Glassman

Quotes About Philosophical Time

"Even those novelists most commonly deemed "philosophical" have sometimes answered with an emphatic no. Iris Murdoch, the longtime Oxford philosopher and author of some two dozen novels treating highbrow themes like consciousness and morality, argued that philosophy and literature were contrary pursuits. Philosophy calls on the analytical mind to solve conceptual problems in an "austere, unselfish, candid" prose, she said in a BBC interview broadcast in 1978, while literature looks to the imagination to show us something "mysterious, ambiguous, particular" about the world. Any appearance of philosophical ideas in her own novels was an inconsequential reflection of what she happened to know. "If I knew about sailing ships I would put in sailing ships," she said. "And in a way, as a novelist, I would rather know about sailing ships than about philosophy." - Author: Iris Murdoch

Quotes About Betrayal And Heartbreak

Quotes About The 19th Hole

"I must say a few words about memory. It is full of holes. If you were to lay it out upon a table, it would resemble a scrap of lace. I am a lover of history . . . [but] history has one flaw. It is a subjective art, no less so than poetry or music. . . . The historian writes a truth. The memoirist writes a truth. The novelist writes a truth. And so on. My mother, we both know, wrote a truth in The 19th Wife– a truth that corresponded to her memory and desires. It is not the truth, certainly not. But a truth, yes . . . Her book is a fact. It remains so, even if it is snowflaked with holes." - Author: David Ebershoff
