[If There Was One Overriding Element To Faraday's Character, It Was Humility. His 'conviction Of Deficiency,' As He Called It, Stemmed In Part From His Deep Religiosity And Affected Practically Every Facet Of His Life. Thus Faraday Approached Both His Science And His Everyday Conduct Unhampered By Ego, Envy, Or Negative Emotion. In His Work, He Assumed The Inevitability Of Error And Failure; Whenever Possible, He Harnessed These As Guides Toward Further Investigation. Faraday Adhered To No Particular School Of Scientific Thought. Nor Did He Flinch When A Favored Hypothesis Fell To The Rigors Of Experiment.]

Quotes About Summertime Love

"He tasted like summertime - of wicked thunderstorms, fresh clover, and wild honeysuckle - and I had the sensation of falling, my stomach tumbling over and over again until calm finally reached in, rooting deep and stretching out to encompass everything: my mind, my body. And my soul - whatever that was. The same clean, almost scentless breeze whipped over us again, just like it had the first night wed met, and I could physically feel one chapter of my life closing and another beginning." - Author: Angela B.

Quotes About Mowing Grass

"It was that time of the year, the turning-point of summer, when the crops of the present year are a certainty, when one begins to think of the sowing for next year, and the mowing is at hand; when the rye is all in ear, though its ears are still light, not yet full, and it waves in gray-green billows in the wind; when the green oats, with tufts of yellow grass scattered here and there among it, droop irregularly over the late-sown fields; when the early buckwheat is already out and hiding the ground; when the fallow lands, trodden hard as stone by the cattle, are half ploughed over, with paths left untouched by the plough; when from the dry dung-heaps carted onto the fields there comes at sunset a smell of manure mixed with meadow-sweet, and on the low-lying lands the riverside meadows are a thick sea of grass waiting for the mowing, with blackened heaps of the stalks of sorrel among it." - Author: Leo Tolstoy
