[In Spite Of The String Of Magazine Covers Announcing The Contrary, We All Know That Ten Simple Things Will Not Save The Earth. There Are, Rather, Three Thousand Impossible Things That All Of Us Must Do, And Changing Our Light Bulbs, While Necessary, Is The Barest Beginning. We Are Being Called Upon To Act Against A Prevailing Culture, To Undermine Our Own Entrenched Tendency To Accumulate And To Consume, And To Refuse To Define Our Individuality By Our Presumed Ability To Do Whatever We Want.]

Kolbe Quotes

"Not one of them [formulae] can be shown to have any existence, so that the formula of one of the simplest of organic bodies is confused by the introduction of unexplained symbols for imaginary differences in the mode of combination of its elements... It would be just as reasonable to describe an oak tree as composed of blocks and chips and shavings to which it may be reduced by the hatchet, as by Dr Kolbes formula to describe acetic acid as containing the products which may be obtained from it by destructive influences. A Kolbe botanist would say that half the chips are united with some of the blocks by the force parenthesis; the other half joined to this group in a different way, described by a buckle; shavings stuck on to these in a third manner, comma; and finally, a compound of shavings and blocks united together by a fourth force, juxtaposition, is joined to the main body by a fifth force, full stop."

Zoe Archer Quotes

"Theres always truth in seduction. Thats why it works."

Louis Colaianni Quotes

"Sound has a profound effect on the senses. It can be both herd and felt. It can even be seen with the minds eye. It can almost be tasted and smelled. Sound can evoke responses of the five senses. Sound can paint a picture, produce a mood, trigger the senses to remember another time and place. From infancy we hear sound with our entire bodies. When I hear my own name, I have as much a sense of it entering my body through my back or my hand or my chest as through my ears. Sound speaks to the sensorium; the entire system of nerves that stimulates sensual responce."

Leon Foucault Quotes

"The phenomenon develops calmly, but it is invisible, unstoppable. One feels, one sees it born and grow steadily; and it is not in ones power to either hasten or slow it down."

Eric Foner Quotes

"Look, Mrs. McGillicuddy, its not my fault your son jumped out a dorm room window on Christmas eve. Ive written over fifty books as a Columbia professor, all right? You dont do that by holding hands with every at-risk undergraduate who says hes homesick, or hes turning gay, or the dog ate his term paper. I write about Lincoln, and freedom, and great ideas. I dont always have time for students. Its like Dean Martin used to say: if you want to talk, go to a priest. Hey -- whats the gun for?"

Quotes About Bruna

"Impari lentamente, mio amato, ma impari. E ciò che si impara lentamente scende più nel profondo. Voi uomini e i vostri Dei! Vi beffate della Madre per la sua lentezza da lumaca, perché crea ciecamente al buio. Tuttavia quando create senza di Lei, in fretta e alla luce, create davvero ciecamente, dando forma, magari, alla morte di un mondo! Ebbene, avvelenate il mare e il cielo, laria che respirate, e persino la dolce pelle bruna del suo seno, che Essa vi ha sempre permesso di lacerare per darvi le messi. Uccidete e uccidete finché non rimane più niente se non ossa nude su una terra squallida e contaminata. La Madre è potente; Essa ha molti corpi, e il vostro mondo è solo uno di quelli. Nella Sua potenza Essa può tuttavia guarire le vostre ferite e far rifiorire la terra, sì: allevare voi uomini, anche se deve partorire di nuovo tutta la vostra razza. Perché una buona madre è paziente; sa che un bambino inciampa più volte prima dimparare a camminare..." - Author: Evangeline Walton

Quotes About Delicious Chicken

"The humans were sitting cross-legged on the floor in a circle of soldiers, pointing at things and learning more Chimaera words: salt, rat, eat, which unfortunate combination led to Zuzana rejecting the meat on her plate."I think its chicken," Mik said, taking a bite."Im just saying there were a lot more rats around here earlier.""Circumstantial evidence." Mik took another bite and said, in passable Chimaera and to guffaws of laughter, "Salty delicious rat.""Its chicken," insisted one of the Shadows That Live. Karou wasnt sure which it was, but she was flapping her arms like wings, and even producing chicken bones to prove it." - Author: Laini Taylor
