"I dont need a lot of money. Simplicity is the answer for me."

Edward Bunker Quotes

"My letters seeking a job, though truthful, diminished the full truth. Face would blanch if the facts had been complete: "Dear Sir," I thought. "Do you have a position for a journeyman burglar, con man, forger and car thief; also with experience as armed robber, pimp, card cheat and several other things. I smoked marijuana at twelve (in the 40s) and shot heroin at sixteen. I have no experience with LSD and methedrine. They came to popularity since my imprisonment. Ive buggered pretty young boys and feminine homosexuals (but only when locked up away from women). In the idiom of jails, prisons and gutters (some plush gutters) Im a motherfucker! Not literally, for I dont remember my mother. In my world the term, used as I used it, is a boast of being hell on wheels, outrageously unpredictable, a virtuoso of crime. Of course by being a motherfucker in that world Im a piece of garbage in yours. Do you have a job?"

Jeff Noon Quotes

"There is a room in England somewhere, but its nowhere to be seen. It exists only in the mind, and only in the mind of those that have been there."

Roger Starr Quotes

"Money is the most egalitarian force in society. It confers power on whoever holds it."

Emily Alyn Lind Quotes

"You can have fun, but when it is time to work, work hard and be focused."

Nancy McKenzie Quotes

"She felt her future close upon her but unseen, like the sea behind the blowing veil of snow... She would follow Llyrs advice and face it a little every day...Day by day, step by step life would go forward. Eventually, the veil would lift, the cold would yield to the suns warmth, and the world would be reborn. This dark time would pass."

Robert K Greenleaf Quotes

"On an important decision one rarely has 100% of the information needed for a good decision no matter how much one spends or how long one waits. And, if one waits too long, he has a different problem and has to start all over. This is the terrible dilemma of the hesitant decision maker."

Jean Bernard Leon Foucault Quotes

"Science gains from it [the pendulum] more than one can expect. With its huge dimensions, the apparatus presents qualities that one would try in vain to communicate by constructing it on a small [scale], no matter how carefully. Already the regularity of its motion promises the most conclusive results. One collects numbers that, compared with the predictions of theory, permit one to appreciate how far the true pendulum approximates or differs from the abstract system called the simple pendulum."

Sara Quin Quotes

"This week or last week, I dont really care about it anymore. I write myself this later, I tell myself you let me go."

Steven Hatfill Quotes

"After reviewing the polygraph charts in private, the polygraph examiner told me that I had passed and that he believed I had nothing to do with the anthrax letters."

Quotes About Skeptical Life

"It is this idea decency should be attached to wealth -and indecency to poverty - that forms the core of one strand of skeptical complaint against the modern status-ideal. Why should failure to make money be taken as a sign of an unconditionally flawed human being rather than of a fiasco in one particular area if the far larger, more multifaceted, project of leading a good life?Why should both wealth and poverty be read as the predominant guides to an individuals morals ?" - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About Apprehensiveness

"Within five minutes of leaving the reunion, Id undone the double wrapping and eaten all six rugelach, each a snail of sugar-dusted pastry dough, the cinnamon-lined chambers microscopically studded with midget raisins and chopped walnuts. By rapidly devouring mouthful after mouthful of these crumbs whose floury richness - blended of butter and sour cream and vanilla and cream cheese and egg yolk and sugar - Id loved since childhood, perhaps Id find vanishing from Nathan what, according to Proust, vanished from Marcel the instant he recognized "the savour of the little madeleine": the apprehensiveness of death. "A mere taste," Proust writes, and "the word death ... [has] ... no meaning for him." So, greedily I ate, gluttonously, refusing to curtail for a moment this wolfish intake of saturated fat, but, in the end, having nothing like Marcels luck." - Author: Philip Roth

Quotes About Scrambling

"Stigmata of LoveA light which lives on what the flames devour,a grey landscape surrounding me with scorch,a crucifixion by a single wound,a sky and earth that darken by each hour,a sob of blood whose red ribbon adornsa lyre without a pulse, and oils the torch,a tide which stuns and strands me on the reef,a scorpion scrambling, stinging in my chest--this is the wreath of love, this bed of thornsis where I dream of you stealing my rest,haunting these sunken ribs cargoed with grief.I sought the peak of prudence, but I foundthe hemlock-brimming valley of your heart,and my own thirst for bitter truth and art." - Author: Federico García Lorca

Quotes About Petit

"Things are continually beginning again; theyre never really resolved, you know. They are only resolved temporarily. We live in a society that peddles solutions, whether its solutions to those extra pounds youre carrying, or to your thinning hair, or to your loss of appetite, loss of love. We are always looking for solutions, but actually what we are engaged in is a process throughout life during which you never get it right. You have to keep being open, you have to keep moving forward. You have to keep finding out who you are and how you are changing, and only that makes life tolerable." - Author: Jeanette Winterson

Quotes About Vitriol

"[As part of Camus refusal to debate his political enemies publicly after their vitriolic responses to the publication of The Rebel] At this point, the least sentence I might say will be used in a way that disgusts me in advance. ... It would be impossible for me in that case to continue expressing myself with academic politeness. I am mistaken for a deliberately polite man whom one may insult in all safety." - Author: Olivier Todd

Quotes About Moral Development

"There is increasing social concern about our use of nonhumans for experiments, food, clothing and entertainment. This concern about animals reflects both our own moral development as a civilization and our recognition that the differences between humans and animals are, for the most part, differences of degree and not of kind." - Author: Gary L. Francione

Quotes About Free Stuff

"There are 500 reasons I write for children.... Children read books, not reviews. They dont give a hoot about the critics.... They dont read to free themselves of guilt, to quench their thirst for rebellion, or to get rid of alienation. They still believe in God, the family, angels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other such obsolete stuff.... They dont expect their beloved writer to redeem humanity. Young as they are, they know that it is not in his power. Only the adults have such childish illusions." - Author: Isaac Bashevis Singer

Quotes About Education And Technology

"In a world where education is predominantly verbal, highly educated people find it all but impossible to pay serious attention to anything but words and notions. There is always money for, there are always doctrines in, the learned foolery of research into what, for scholars, is the all-important problem: Who influenced whom to say what when? Even in this age of technology the verbal humanities are honoured. The non-verbal humanities, the arts of being directly aware of the given facts of our existence, are almost completely ignored." - Author: Aldous Huxley

Quotes About Forgetting Your Family

"I dont want you forgetting how different our circumstaces are. If you die, and I live, theres no life for me at all back in District Twelve. Youre my whole life." Peeta says. "I would never be happy again. Its different for you. Im not saying it wouldnt be hard. But there are other people whod make your life worth living.""No one really needs me," he says, and theres no selfpity in his voice. Its true his family doesnt need him. They will mourn him, as will a handfull of friends. But they will get on.... I realise only one person will be damaged beyond repair if Peeta dies. Me."I do," I say. "I need you." - Author: Suzanne Collins
