Philip Plait Quotes

"If a little kid ever asks you just why the sky is blue, you look him or her right in the eye and say, "Its because of quantum effects involving Rayleigh scattering combined with a lack of violet photon receptors in our retinae."

Jonalyn Fincher Quotes

"So although in Genesis 2, ezer is often translated "helper" or "helpmeet," its meaning includes far more. Woman is Mans ezer- she is a delivering, warring, supporting, shielding, capable, and vibrant female image bearer of God."

Philip Van Munching Quotes

"IT helps to think of the whole development thing as a process; you go in looking like a girl, and youll come out at the other end looking like a woman. The stuff in the middle is just what everyone goes through, it;s almost never much fun."

Thomm Quackenbush Quotes

Ann Marlowe Quotes

"Addiction is a bargain with the cosmos: only stay time, and Ill remain in this holding pattern, too. The uncrossable gap between now and the past is given tangible form and conquered, daily, in the real but bridgeable gap between what I need and what I can get. Addiction creates a god so that time will stop--why all gods are created. God might be another story."

Jose Panate Aceves And John Hayes Quotes

"In the mainstream, with its illusion of unlimited relational possibilities, we can counter dissatisfaction in relationships by simply moving on in search of the "right people." But community...demands we cultivate friendships with people we might not choose ordinarily. Founding friendship on commitment rather than "chemistry" often requires adjustment...At the end of the day, however, we have found that any loss of chemistry in relationships is more than made up for with gains in meaning."

Quotes About Sown

"Weźmy twój rozum. Na pozór wydaje się, że myślisz w sposób uporządkowany, logiczny i sensowny. Ale wszyscy wiemy, że w twojej głowie kwitnie istna dżungla nonsensów. Twój umysł to poskręcany, chaotyczny zlepek przypadkowych informacji, które nie kleją się ze sobą z powodu elementarnego braku wiedzy, nie stosowania zasad logiki, niewiarygodnego zaniku zdolności wnioskowania oraz niczym nieuzasadnionego poczucia własnej wyższości. Chaos w płonącym włoskim burdelu podczas bombardowania w czasie II wojny światowej daje mniej więcej obraz tego, co dzieje się zazwyczaj w..." - Author: Martin Lechowicz

Quotes About Scuffle

"Your sister," I say evenly, "is incredibly sick. Im sorry if that interferes with your dentists appointment or your plan to go buy a pair of cleats. But those dont rate quite as high in the grand scheme of things right now. Id think that since youre ten, you might be able to grow up enough to realize that the whole world doesnt always revolve around you." Jesse looks out the window, where Kate straddles the arm of an oak tree, coaching Anna in how to climb up. "Yeah, right, shes sick," he says. "Why dont you grow up? Why dont you figure out that the world doesnt revolve around her?" ... There is a scuffle on the other side of the door, and then it swings open. Blood covers Jesses mouth, a vampires lipstick; bits of wire stick out like a seamstresss pins. I notice the fork he is holding, and realize this is what he used to pull off his braces. "Now you never have to take me anywhere," he says." - Author: Jodi Picoult

Quotes About Umberto

"And Belen?""Yes, Your Majesty?"Maybe I do want to talk about him. A little. "Humberto would be proud of you, too. He always believed youd come back to us." Saying his name aloud doesnt hurt as much as I thought it would. Humberto, I practice silently. Humberto.A soft catch of breath. Then: "He had a way of believing in people long before they believed in themselves, didnt he?"The entrance to my tent flaps closes, and he is gone." - Author: Rae Carson

Quotes About Mans Intelligence

"Dogs (like rats) are multitalented but they are also not very smart the way humans are. A recent book, devoted to the intelligence of dogs, is 250+ pages long (Stanley Coren, The Intelligence of Dogs: A Guide to the Thoughts, Emotions, and Inner Lives of Our Canine Companions, 1994). Interestingly, despite careful qualifications by Coren regarding definitions, the ranking of breeds by intelligence literally made newspaper headlines. We are obviously fascinated by the notion that dogs - or at least certain breeds of dog - might, just might, be really, really smart. It all makes as much sense as evaluating humans on our ability to sniff for bombs or echo-locate." - Author: Jean Donaldson

Quotes About Cheering For Football

"Autumn. Its crispness, its anticipation, its melancholia, its cool breezes replacing summers heat. Its long days in the field, a harvest festival when works done, a cheering crowd in a football stadium, chrysanthemums punctuating a somber landscape. Its Halloween highjinx, pumpkins grinning toothy smiles, the crack of pecan pressed against pecan. Its the first curls of woodsmoke, fresh blisters from pushing a rake. Its crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And its very, very welcome." - Author: Good Housekeeping Magazine

Quotes About Cell Phone Usage

"Out of respect for the love of liberty shown by the Chinese people, and also in the belief that the future of the world lies with the yellow man and the brown man now that our erstwhile master, the white-skinned man, has wasted himself through buggery, cell phone usage, and drug abuse, I offer to tell you, free of charge, the truth about Bangalore."By telling you my lifes story."See, when you come to Bangalore, and stop at a traffic light, some boy will run up to your car and knock on your window, while holding up a bootlegged copy of an American business book wrapped carefully in cellophane and with a title like:TEN SECRETS OF BUSINESS SUCCESS!orBECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR IN SEVEN EASY DAYS!"Dont waste your money on those American books. Theyre so yesterday."I am tomorrow." - Author: Aravind Adiga

Quotes About Buddha Mindfulness

"Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred." - Author: Thích Nhất Hạnh
