"You know that first night when we stayed together here in the cabin? As sick as we were, there was no place on earth I would have rather been then here with you."

Bo Brown Quotes

"We are not past racism. It took us 500 and however many years to get us where we are; its not gonna change in one day or in one election. We made a step maybe, which theyll try and take away from us as soon as they can. But I mean what the fuck is the Tea Party about? Its not about "tea"; it aint about "trans", either."

Carolyn Mahaney Quotes

"In fact, you get the feeling nowadays that doing anything outside of the home is more honorable than working in the home. Dorothy Patterson characterizes the current mind-set in this way: Much of the world would agree that being a housekeeper is acceptable as long as you are not caring for your own home; treating men with attentive devotion would also be right as long as the man is the boss in the office and not your husband; caring for children would even be deemed heroic service for which presidential awards could be given as long as the children are someone elses and not your own."

"Someone asked me about the difference between love and lust. Hmmm. That will take a little thought. How to tell the difference? Well, for guys, if she looks better AFTER youve made love to her than before, that might be love. If you find yourself itching to get out the door afterward, probably just lust, yknow?"

Quotes About The Nature Of Time

"The first words that are read by seekers of enlightenment in the secret, gong-banging, yeti-haunted valleys near the hub of the world, are when they look into The Life of Wen the Eternally Surprised.The first question they ask is: Why was he eternally surprised?And they are told: Wen considered the nature of time and understood that the universe is, instant by instant, recreated anew. Therefore, he understood, there is in truth no past, only a memory of the past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. Therefore, he said, the only appropriate state of the mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.The first words read by the young Lu-Tze when he sought perplexity in the dark, teeming, rain-soaked city of Ankh-Morpork were: Rooms For Rent, Very Reasonable. And he was glad of it." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Gyro

"Recently, the search for what he calls "the splinters that make up different attention problems" has taken Castellanos in a new direction. First, he explains that your brain is far less concerned with your brilliant ideas or searing emotions than with its own internal "gyroscopic busyness," which consumes 65 percent of its total energy. Every fifty seconds, its activity fluctuates, causing what he calls a "brownout." No one knows the purpose of these neurological events, but Castellanos has a thesis: the clockwork pulses enable the brains circuits to stay "logged on" and available to communicate with one another, even when theyre not being used. "Imagine youre a cabdriver on your day off," Castellanos says. "You dont need to use your workday circuits on a Sunday, but to keep those channels open, your brain sends a ping through them every minute or so. The fluctuations are the brains investment in maintaining its circuits online." - Author: Winifred Gallagher

Quotes About Signage

"For a brief period of time the American electric-sign industry looked beyond its most immediate market and collaborated with store designers and architects in creating a style which became known as stream-line. Later it became known as American Déco. Whatever it was called or will be called in the future, it represents in terms of neon a thrust away from isolated signage toward an area of architectural ornamentation in which signage is but one element in an overall plan. — Rudi Stern" - Author: Philip Di Lemme

Quotes About Challenge Yourself

"So the challenge, as you contemplate your next opportunity to be boring or remarkable, is to answer these two questions: (1) "If I get criticized for this, will I suffer any measurable impact? Will I lose my job, get hit upside the head with a softball bat, or lose important friendships?" If the only side effect of the criticism is that you will feel bad about the criticism, then you have to compare that bad feeling with the benefits youll get from actually doing something worth doing. Being remarkable is exciting, fun, profitable, and great for your career. Feeling bad wears off.And then, once youve compared the bad feeling and the benefits, and youve sold yourself on taking the remarkable path, answer this one: (2) How can I create something that critics will criticize?" - Author: Seth Godin
