Steve Pemberton Quotes

"... a man could build whatever monuments he wanted in the worlds of politics, sports, entertainment, and business, but if they come at the expense of his children, then he has failed. Once the attention fades and the crowds stop cheering his name and his accomplishments are little more than fine print in a history book, the only thing that truly survives him is his child. That is his legacy. That is what defines him. All else is but a footnote."

Juan Gabriel Vasquez Quotes

"Adulthood brings with it the pernicious illusion of control, perhaps even depends on it. I mean that mirage of dominion over our own life that allows us to feel like adults, for we associate maturity with autonomy, the sovereign right to determine what is going to happen to us next."

So my catering partner and I - we were both struggling actresses at the time - thought, instead of getting a waitressing job, lets do what we love.

Priscilla Stuckey Quotes

"And here lies the crux of the matter: to say that nature is personal may mean not so much seeing the world differently as acting differently -- or, to state it another way, it may mean interacting with more-than-human others in nature as if those others had a life of their own and then coming to see, through experience, that these others are living, interactive beings."When nature is personal, the world is peopled by rocks, trees, rivers, and mountains, all of whom are actors and agents, protagonists of their own stories rather than just props in a human story. When Earth is truly alive, the world is full of persons, only some of whom are human."

Henri Poincare Quotes

"Intuition is more important to discovery than logic."

Gilles Villeneuve Quotes

Quotes About 162

"Robert Burtons The Anatomy of Melancholy (1621) was a profoundly important analysis of human states of mind - a kind of early philosophical/ psychological study. He sees melancholy as part of the human condition, especially love melancholy and religious melancholy. His concerns are remarkably close to those which Shakespeare explores in his plays. Ambition, for example, Burton describes as a proud covetousness or a dry thirst of Honour, a great torture of the mind, composed of envy, pride and covetousness, a gallant madness - words which could well be applied to Macbeth." - Author: Ronald Carter

Quotes About Macarthur Japan

"Listen--God only exists in peoples minds. Especially in Japan, Gods always been kind of a flexible concept. Look at what happened after the war. Douglas MacArthur ordered the divine emperor to quit being God, and he did, making a speech saying he was just an ordinary person. So after 1946 he wasnt God anymore. Thats what Japanese gods are like--they can be tweaked and adjusted. Some American comping on a cheap pipe gives the order and presto change-o--Gods no longer God. A very postmodern kind of thing. If you think Gods there, He is. If you dont, He isnt.~pages 286-287" - Author: Haruki Murakami
