[In This World, There Are Two Times. There Is Mechanical Time And There Is Body Time.""They Do Not Keep Clocks In Their Houses. Instead, They Listen To Their Heartbeats. They Feel The Rhythms Of Their Moods And Desires.""Then There Are Those Who Think Their Bodies Don't Exist. They Live By Mechanical Time. They Rise At Seven O'clock In The Morning. They Eat Their Lunch At Noon And Their Supper At Six. They Arrive At Their Appointments On Time, Precisely By The Clock.]

Tarja Moles Quotes

"The Swedes have coined the term management by perkele to portray the Finnish managerial approach. Instead of collectively pondering all the possible alternatives and letting every member of the staff from the cleaner to the MD voice their views, as the Swedes do, the Finns act swiftly and dont waste time on the decision-making process. If something isnt happening quickly enough, it is necessary for the top managers to slam their fists on the table and yell, Perkele! Repeatedly, if necessary."

Quotes About Rough Pasts

"My family sat in their pool courtyard," Harah said, "in air bathed by the moisture that arose from the spray of a fountain. There was a tree of portyguls, round and deep in color, near at hand.

Quotes About Police Detectives

"How miserably hypocritical, you might say, but no sooner am I offered a chance to flee Hell than I yearn to stay. Few families hold their relations as closely as do prisons.
