Lois Lenski Quotes

"A new respect for Nature had been learned, a new kinship with sun and water and soil....They had learned that while Nature is often beautiful and kind, her laws must be respected, for they are ruthless and inexorable as well. Man must accept these laws and adjust his way of living to them. Then only can he prosper."

Ann Voscamp Quotes

"With memories of gravestones, of combing fingers through tangled hair, I wonder too ... If the rent in the canvas of our life backdrop, the losses that puncture our world, and our own emptiness, might actually become places to see.To see through to God.That which tears open our souls, those holes which splatter sight, they actually become the thin, open places to see through the mess of this place to the heart aching beauty beyond. To him. To the god whom we endlessly crave.But how? How do we choose to allow the holes to become seeing through to collect places? How do I give up resentment for gratitude, anger for spilling joy, so focus for God communion. To fully live to fully live grace enjoy with all that is beauty internal it is possible"

Patrick Somerville Quotes

"In the end nothing matters but the work. You cant control how its taken, and the act of telling a story always involves a gap. Sometimes confusion is the risk of ambiguity–I say that to students all the time. Its true at the fireside and its true in the parlor, and its true in made-up towns and New York. Two humans face one another, words come out of one, words go into the other mind through the ears and eyes of the listener. Its a story. Its simple. The gap is the thing. Make sure you build the bridge."

Quotes About Game Theory

"To the average mathematician who merely wants to know his work is securely based, the most appealing choice is to avoid difficulties by means of Hilberts program. Here one regards mathematics as a formal game and one is only concerned with the question of consistency ... . The Realist position is probably the one which most mathematicians would prefer to take. It is not until he becomes aware of some of the difficulties in set theory that he would even begin to question it. If these difficulties particularly upset him, he will rush to the shelter of Formalism, while his normal position will be somewhere between the two, trying to enjoy the best of two worlds." - Author: Hilbert

"I find me life is not as quiet as it used to be afore ye came to me palace, Mrs. Hollingbrook."Silence lifted her chin. "Youre a pirate, Mr. OConnor. I cannot believe your life was ever very quiet."He gave her an ironic look. "Aye, amazin, isnt it? Yet since yer arrival me servants no longer obey me and I return home to find me kitchen flooded." He crossed to a cupboard and took down a china teapot, a tin of tea, and a teacup. "And me dog smells like a whorehouse."Silence glanced guiltily at Lad.

Quotes About Wrongdoing

"Right now I feel guilty to be alive. Why? Because Im wasting it. Ive been given this life and all I do is mope it away.Whats worse is, I am totally aware of how ridiculous I am.

I know how small my problems are, yet that doesnt stop me from obsessing about them.I have to stop doing this.How do other people get happy? I look at people laughing and smiling and enjoying themselves and try to get inside their heads. How do Bridget, Manda, and Sara do it? Or Pepe?

Why cant I just move on and make the best of what Ive got?I wish I knew." - Author: Megan McCafferty
