CS Pacat Quotes

"They are surely gods who speak to himWith steady voicesA glance from him drives men to theirkneesHis sigh brings cities to ruinI wonder if he dreams of surrenderOn a bed of white flowersOr is that the mistaken hopeOf every would-be conqueror?The world was not made for beauty likehis."

Robert Farrar Capon Quotes

"Lord, please restore to us the comfort of merit and demerit. Show us that there is at least something we can do. Tell us that at the end of the day there will at least be one redeeming card of our very own. Lord, if it is not too much to ask, send us to bed with a few shreds of self-respect upon which we can congratulate ourselves. But whatever you do, do not preach grace. Give us something to do, anything; but spare us the indignity of this indiscriminate acceptance."

Quotes About Robert Kiyosaki

Quotes About Parable

"Its a most peculiar psychology—this business of "Science is based on faith too, so there!" Typically this is said by people who claim that faith is a good thing. Then why do they say "Science is based on faith too!" in that angry-triumphal tone, rather than as a compliment? And a rather dangerous compliment to give, one would think, from their perspective. If science is based on faith, then science is of the same kind as religion—directly comparable. If science is a religion, it is the religion that heals the sick and reveals the secrets of the stars. It would make sense to say, "The priests of science can blatantly, publicly, verifiably walk on the Moon as a faith-based miracle, and your priests faith cant do the same." Are you sure you wish to go there, oh faithist? Perhaps, on further reflection, you would prefer to retract this whole business of "Science is a religion too!" - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Quotes About Twisted Truth

"What is the nature of the border between truth and lies? It is permeable and blurred because it is planted thick with rumour, confabulation, misunderstandings and twisted tales. Truth can break the gates down, truth can howl in the street; unless truth is pleasing, personable and easy to like, she is condemned to stay whimpering at the back door." - Author: Hilary Mantel

Quotes About Griegos

"...ustedes que, al igual que yo, saben lo que es tocar una pinga bien al palo y hacerle caramelo con la boquita. (y no es que le quiera hacer propaganda a la mariconada, pero es una verdad que ya sabían los antiguos griegos cuando se metían todos calatos al jacuzi: que rico hacer mañoserías con una hembrita joven y deseosa de carnosidades, pero es mucho más rico entregarse al cuerpo joven, durito, musculoso, de un chiquillo atlético y de espíritu liviano. ay qué rico, se me hace agüita la boca, cómo te envidio, sócrates, desgraciado, bien hecho que te hayas chupado todita la cicuta, mamón.)" - Author: Jaime Bayly

Quotes About Existir

"Depende de como você entende essa palavra, "esotérico" significa interno. O esoterismo encerra a idéia da existência de um círculo interno da humanidade. Lembra-se de como a humanidade foi descrita como constituída de quatro círculos - o esotérico, o mesotérico e o exotérico, que formam o círculo interior, e o círculo exterior no qual vivemos? A idéia de esoterismo implica a idéia de transmissão do conhecimento; presume a existência de um grupo de pessoas a quem pertence um certo conhecimento. Não se deve compreender isso de alguma forma mística, porém mais precisamente, de forma concreta. Há muitas diferenças entre os círculos interno e externo. Por exemplo, muitas coisas que queremos descobrir ou criar só podem existir no círculo interno." - Author: P.D. Ouspensky

Quotes About Granny

"How can I ever make you understand Cassie and me? I would have to take you there, walk you down every path of our secret shared geography. The truism says its against all odds for a straight man and woman to be real friends, platonic friends; we rolled thirteen, threw down five aces and ran away giggling. She was the summertime cousin out of storybooks, the one you taught to swim at some midge-humming lake and pestered with tadpoles down her swimsuit, with whom you practiced first kisses on a heather hillside and laughed about it years later over a clandestine joint in your grannys cluttered attic. She painted my fingernails gold and dared me to leave them that way for work…We climbed out her window and down the fire escape and lay on the roof of the extension below, drinking improvised cocktails and singing Tom Waits and watching the stars spin dizzily around us.No." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About Flavour

"Cooking is like playing a violin. The bow is a tool used to play, as is the knives and other tools you use to prepare. (a chefs knife is even held in the same manner) Spices are the notes used in the score. The way the food is cooked and prepared is the rhythm and tempo. The ingredients are the violin themselves, ready to be played upon. The finished dish is the music played to its best melody. All of these things must be applied together at the right pace, manner, and time in order to create a flavourful rush of artwork and beauty." - Author: Jennifer Megan Varnadore
