Charles Jencks Quotes

"Science is a victim of its own reductive metaphors: Big Bang, selfish gene and so on. Richard Dawkins selfish gene fitted with the Thatcherite politics of the time. It should actually be the altruistic gene, but hed never have sold as many books with a title like that."

Charles H Best Quotes

"A story about the Jack Spratts of medicine [was] told recently by Dr. Charles H. Best, co-discoverer of insulin. He had been invited to a conference of heart specialists in North America. On the eve of the meeting, out of respect for the fat-clogs-the-arteries theory, the delegates sat down to a special banquet served without fats. It was unpalatable but they all ate it as a duty. Next morning Best looked round the breakfast room and saw these same specialists—all in the 40-60 year old, coronary age group—happily tucking into eggs, bacon, buttered toast and coffee with cream."

Sarah Diemer Quotes

"She was prisoner to an old, forgotten god, kept from her home, probably never to see it again, and yet... the way she sat, poised, calm, clear like a full moon night, she seemed much happier than me, the witch who contained them all, the jailer with the magic key."

Peter Perret Quotes

"Our musicians in residence carry this belief into the classroom. They dont think of childrens self-esteem as so fragile that it will be shattered by the suggestion that the child guessed wrong or jumped to an invalid conclusion. They make corrections matter-of-factly, with no feeling that a chid is a failure because she has made an error, but with ocnfidence that the feedback will help the child learn and be accurate the next time."

Quotes About Iubirea

"Uneori, îmi aduc aminte, pe vremea când o făceam pe craiul, părăseam o femeie din cauza unei pete pe ciorap, din cauza unui cuvânt stupid...și acum iert orice: mestecatul, ..., lipsa de îngrijire, discuțiile lungi despre oul pe care l-a mâncat. Și eu iert astea aproape inconștient, fără a-mi silui voința, de parca greșelile Sașei sunt ale mele, iar multe dintre cele care odinioară mă chinuiau, mă fac acum să mă înduioșez sau să cad în extaz.Motivul acestei iertări complete se află în iubirea mea pentru Sașa, dar unde sunt motivele iubirii înseși, asta nu mai știu..." - Author: Anton Chekhov

Quotes About Insane Friends

"Some leave our life with tears, others with an insane frigidity; Mrs. Wilcox had taken the middle course, which only rarer natures can pursue. She had kept proportion. She had told a little of her grim secret to her friends, but not too much; she had shut up her heart--almost, but not entirely. It is thus, if there is any rule, that we ought to die--neither as victim nor as fanatic, but as the seafarer who can greet with an equal eye the deep that he is entering, and the shore that he must leave." - Author: E.M. Forster

Quotes About Oh

"A woman with super long platinum blonde hair, a fake tan, injected bubble gum pink lips, and a large boob job came in. Phoebe showed her where to set up in front of us and we all sat patiently."Hello, Im Tandy" I almost rolled my eyes at her name, given her appearance. She placed a case on the coffee table in front of us, opened it, and pulled out rubber penises. I almost shot my drink out of my nose, again. "I will be instructing you on proper blow job technique.""Oh my God, Phoebe." I shouted at her."Yeah," Viola clapped her hands and reached out to be the first to get a rubber practice penis." - Author: Sadie Grubor

Quotes About Rousseau Democracy

"I am a democrat [proponent of democracy] because I believe in the Fall of Man.I think most people are democrats for the opposite reason. A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that every one deserved a share in the government.The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that theyre not true. . . . I find that theyre not true without looking further than myself. I dont deserve a share in governing a hen-roost. Much less a nation. . . .The real reason for democracy is just the reverse. Mankind is so fallen that no man can be trusted with unchecked power over his fellows. Aristotle said that some people were only fit to be slaves. I do not contradict him. But I reject slavery because I see no men fit to be masters." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Okinawa

"Japans alliance with the U.S. will only grow in importance amid the increasingly difficult security situation surrounding our country, thus I think it is necessary to keep the marines in Okinawa, a geographically strategic location from the standpoint of maintaining deterrence." - Author: Yoshihiko Noda

Quotes About Rap Lyrics

"I let that swim around in my aching head for a few minutes - "the arsenal of megadeath...the arsenal of megadeath" - and then, for some reason I cant quite explain, I began to write. Using a borrowed pencil and a cupcake wrapper, I wrote the first lyrics of my post-Metallica life. This song was called "Megadeth" (I dropped the second "a"), and though it would never find its way onto an album, it did serve as the basis for the song "Set the World Afire." It hadnt occured to me then that Megadeth-as used by Senator Cranston, megadeath referred to the loss of one million lives as a result of nuclear holocaust-might be a perfectly awesome name for a thrash metal band." - Author: Dave Mustaine
