Laura Moriarty Quotes

"Shooting stars are not really stars at all but meteorites, burning their way through our atmosphere, sometimes landing in the oceans and in the middle of farms...you could make wishes on them if you like, but they are really just pieces of rock falling down from the sky, and they could land on your head and kill you just as you look up to make a wish. Really, theyre just rocks. They dont care about your wishes at all."

A Grace Martin Quotes

"That is why the stone is so dangerous, Nabrie," said Dart. "I would not see you too fall victim to its powers. Let us only hope that Fireskin has truly purified the stone, and not merely intensified the potential for evil that is in it. I fear the fire may only have fuelled the power of the spirits in its heart."

Quotes About Movie Underdogs

"Yet this wasnt like sports, let alone sports movies. The roles werent fixed, nor the meaning of the scaffolding. It didnt have to be this way. They might have, for instance, all felt stronger. They might have felt stronger and come together. They might have decided that, rather than now, as theyd been mistaken before: that if their enemies cheered the same damage as they, then they werent their enemies after all. They might have concluded their interests were mutual, that some other force, earlier—some other enemy—had confused and divided them, and that all those who cheered were thus allies unmasked.Instead they felt bitter, tricked by each other, last-strawed underdogs, suckers on the mend. Their enmity swelled and they fought even harder." - Author: Adam Levin

Quotes About Becoming 18 Years Old

Quotes About Economic Development

"Moderates in every faith are obliged to loosely interpret (or simply ignore) much of their canons in the interests of living in the modern world. No doubt an obscure truth of economics is at work here: societies appear to become considerably less productive whenever large numbers of people stop making widgets and begin killing their customers and creditors for heresy. The first thing to observe about the moderates retreat from scriptural literalism is that it draws its inspiration not from scripture but from cultural developments that have rendered many of Gods utterances difficult to accept as written." - Author: Sam Harris

Quotes About Global Learning

"Richard Felder is co-developer of the Index of Learning Styles. He suggests that there are eight different learning styles. Active learners absorb material best by applying it in some fashion or explaining it to others. Reflective learners prefer to consider the material before doing anything with it. Sensing learners like learning facts and tend to be good with details. Intuitive learners like to identify the relationships between things and are comfortable with abstract concepts. Visual learners remember best what they see, while verbal learners do better with written and spoken explanations. Sequential learners like to learn by following a process from one logical step to the next, while global learners tend to make cognitive leaps, continuously taking in information until they "get it." - Author: Ken Robinson

Quotes About Tyrannie

"At the round earths imagined corners blowYour trumpets, angels, and arise, ariseFrom death, you numberless infinitiesOf souls, and to your scattered bodies go ;All whom the flood did, and fire shall oerthrow,All whom war, dea[r]th, age, agues, tyrannies,Despair, law, chance hath slain, and you, whose eyesShall behold God, and never taste deaths woe.But let them sleep, Lord, and me mourn a space ;For, if above all these my sins abound,Tis late to ask abundance of Thy grace,When we are there. Here on this lowly ground,Teach me how to repent, for thats as goodAs if Thou hadst seald my pardon with Thy blood. " - Author: John Donne

Quotes About Bill Hicks

"Whenever I tell people Im a misanthrope they react as though thats a bad thing, the idiots. I live in London, for Gods sake. Have you walked down Oxford Street recently? Misanthropys the only thing that gets you through it. Its not a personality flaw, its a skill.Its nothing to do with sheer numbers. Move me to a remote cottage in the Hebrides and Id learn to despise the postman, even if he only visited once a year. I cant abide other people, with their stink and their noise and their irritating ringtones. Bill Hicks called the human race a virus with shoes, and if you ask me he was being unduly hard on viruses; Id consider a career in serial killing if the pay wasnt so bad." - Author: Charlie Brooker

Quotes About Annals

"Werewolves are not a subject for academe," she said, "but you know what the professors would be saying if they were. ‘Monsters die out when the collective imagination no longer needs them. Species death like this is nothing more than a shift in the aggregate psychic agenda. In ages past the beast in man was hidden in the dark, disavowed. The transparency of modern history makes that impossible: Weve seen ourselves in the concentration camps, the gulags, the jungles, the killing fields, weve read ourselves in the annals of True Crime. Technology turned up the lights and now theres no getting away from the fact: The beast is redundant. Its been us all along." - Author: Glen Duncan
