Liam McGrath Quotes

"You try hard, but you dont succeed.. So you try harder, and harder... But you still just dont succeed, you give it a try once more; only realising its never going to work out the way you want it to. But then again, you remember; youve tried so much. Youve tried to please, youve tried to love and youve tried to care. You think to yourself, "Why should I keep on going?" You try so hard, whats the point.. No one accepts you for who you are, no one sees you for who you are, no one takes the time to ask how you feel, no one takes the time to bother.. But then theres you... You try, and try. And you just give up hope, because its just so much easier!"

"[Professor Kinnerton] Has the fact that we have about 97 percent of our DNA in common with chimpanzees escaped you? How can you still argue we are special and have a soul when we are so obviously animals? ... [Al Gleeson] With due respect sir, the 97 percent is precisely the problem.

Quotes About Open Mouths

"We open our mouths and out flow words whose ancestries we do not even know. We are walking lexicons. In a single sentence of idle chatter we preserve Latin, Anglo-Saxon, Norse; we carry a museum inside our heads, each day we commemorate people of whom we have never heard. More than that, we speak volumes – our language is the language of everything we have read. Shakespeare and the Authorised Version surface in supermarkets, on buses, chatter on radio and television. I find this miraculous. I never cease to wonder at it. That words are more durable than anything, that they blow with the wind, hibernate and reawaken, shelter parasitic on the most unlikely hosts, survive and survive and survive." - Author: Penelope Lively

Let librarians be free to do what they do best: encourage a lifelong love of reading in every child, even the ones without a hope of ever getting an A star." - Author: Sally Gardner
