Yishan Wong Quotes

"I think that building any product that has a lot of user loyalty is a bit like making a sequel to a great movie or video game - people generally want more of the same thing, except better and different."

Jason Epstein Quotes

"Editors and their authors seldom form deep friendships for the same reason that psychiatrists and their patients keep their distance: The relationship requires candor that mixes poorly with intimacy."

Conor Cruise OBrien Quotes

"في المرَّةِ الأولى عندما متنالَمْ نَجِد سريراً يُلائم أجسادنا المُكتظَّة بأشياءٍ جميلةوبقينا بلا نومٍ لأيامٍ نُخفِّف حمولة داخلنا من رداءةِ ما عَلِق...طائرات ورقية رسمناها في صيف 2008بوسترات أفلام رخيصة كانت نتيجة خوفنا من أن نفشل في الإنجابقمصان زاهية نرتديها حينما تقهرنا الرغبة، نرتديها بدافع الضحكوالملل والعادة؛رسائل بريدية تحمل أُغنية، أخبار قديمة، قصائد نُمرِّرها عبر أيقونةسريعة، محادثة مرئية تُعيد لنا ملامحنا القديمةحزن بنفسجيّ كأخرِ وردة بينناذبحة صدريّة انغمست في أصابعنا فتوقّفنا عن الكتابة ؛المرّة الأولى كانت كافيةً جداً لإعادةِ الاختياروأنْ ننام ونوافذنا مفتوحة ليجِد الحبَّ مُتَّسعاً."

Quotes About Strangers And Friends

"This has been the century of strangers, brown, yellow and white. This has been the century of the great immigrant experiment. It is only this late in the day that you can walk into a playground and find Isaac Leung by the fish pond, Danny Rahman in the football cage, Quang ORourke bouncing a basketball, and Irie Jones humming a tune. Children with first and last names on a direct collision course. Names that secrete within them mass exodus, cramped boats and planes, cold arrivals, medical checks. It is only this late in the day, and possibly only in Willesden, that you can find best friends Sita and Sharon, constantly mistaken for each other because Sita is white (her mother liked the name) and Sharon is Pakistani (her mother thought it best — less trouble)." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Phenomenology

"But enough of phenomenology; it is nothing more than the solitary, endless monologue of consciousness, a hard-core autism that no real cat would ever importune." - Author: Muriel Barbery

Quotes About For Better Or Worse

"In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. Ones standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to." - Author: Theodore Dalrymple

Quotes About Bosom Friends

"At the times in my life when I was feeling the most gregarious and looking for bosom friendships, I couldnt find any takers, so that exactly when I was alone was when I felt the most like not being alone... I became a loner in my own mind... I decided Id rather be alone." - Author: Andy Warhol

Quotes About Criminal Minds Psychopaths

"Because you have seen something doesnt mean you can explain it. Differing interpretations will always abound, even when good minds come to bear. The kernel of indisputable information is a dot in space; interpretations grow out of the desire to make this point a line, to give it direction. The directions in which it can be sent, the uses to which it can be put by a culturally, professionally, and geographically diverse society are almost without limit. The possibilities make good scientists chary." - Author: Barry López

Quotes About Falling For Wrong Guy

"Jacey, I can never give you what you want. You want someone who can open up and discuss feelings, someone who will be an active participant in your life. Thats not me and it never will be. We need to pull the plug on this thing now, because once again, youre falling for the wrong guy." - Author: Courtney Cole

Quotes About Wrong Assumptions

"Even when alternative views are clearly wrong, being exposed to them still expands our creative potential. In a way, the power of dissent is the power of surprise. After hearing someone shout out an errant answer, we work to understand it, which causes us to reassess our initial assumptions and try out new perspectives. "Authentic dissent can be difficult, but its always invigorating," [Charlan] Nemeth [a professor of psychology at the University of California at Berkeley] says. "It wakes us right up." - Author: Jonah Lehrer

Quotes About Ajivika

"Ah Buddha, you boastful charlatan. You may have learned nothing after 6 years of suffering, but then what of 7 years? What of 17? What might you have learned from a lifetime of pain? [...] From what I can tell, the wisest man in all these scriptures was the first person Buddha ever tried to teach - an Ajivika named Upaka. Buddha bragged to him of how he achieved nirvana, to which Upaka simply replied: "That may be so," and walked away." - Author: Mark X.

Quotes About Alteration

"An occupying power has no right to make significant alterations in the character of the occupied society, to change the laws all around, without a strong security reason and so forth." - Author: Juan Cole
