Quotes About Confusing Guys

"Id been traveling in Asia long enough to know that monkeys there are nothing like their trombone-playing, tambourine-banging cousins Id seen on TV as a kid. Free-living Asian primates possess a characteristic I found shocking and confusing the first time I saw it: self-respect. If you make the mistake of holding the gaze of a street monkey in India, Nepal, or Malaysia, youll find youre facing a belligerently intelligent creature whose expression says, with a Robert DeNiro–like scowl, "What the hell are you looking at? You wanna piece of me?" Forget about putting one of these guys in a little red vest." - Author: Christopher Ryan

But when you join eternity, you will not feel the sting of this life with such intensity.""You mean I wouldnt feel at all?""I feel, my love. Simply not in the same way you do. And thank heavens for that, because you are quite an embarrassment at times. Your inconsistent and flailing passions will no longer be a concern."Leave it to Reth to go from comforting me to insulting me in the course of one short conversation." - Author: Kiersten White

Quotes About Cam Newton

"One day at Fenners (the university cricket ground at Cambridge), just before the last war, G. H. Hardy and I were talking about Einstein. Hardy had met him several times, and I had recently returned from visiting him. Hardy was saying that in his lifetime there had only been two men in the world, in all the fields of human achievement, science, literature, politics, anything you like, who qualified for the Bradman class. For those not familiar with cricket, or with Hardys personal idiom, I ought to mention that "the Bradman class" denoted the highest kind of excellence: it would include Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Newton, Archimedes, and maybe a dozen others. Well, said Hardy, there had only been two additions in his lifetime. One was Lenin and the other Einstein." - Author: C.P. Snow
