Andrew John Wiles Quotes

"Some mathematics problems look simple, and you try them for a year or so, and then you try them for a hundred years, and it turns out that theyre extremely hard to solve. Theres no reason why these problems shouldnt be easy, and yet they turn out to be extremely intricate. [Fermats] Last Theorem is the most beautiful example of this."

Paul Evdokimov Quotes

"The East is unfamiliar with those confessions, memoirs, and autobiographies so beloved in the West. There is a clear difference in tonality. Ones gaze never lingers on the suffering humanity of Christ, but penetrates behind the kenotic veil. To the Wests mysticism of the Cross and its veneration of the Sacred Heart corresponds the eastern mysticism of the sealed tomb, from which eternal life eternal wells up."

Quotes About Dopey

"I spent the last Friday of summer vacation spreading hot, sticky tar across the roof of George Washington High. My companions were Dopey, Toothless, and Joe, the brain surgeons in charge of building maintenance. At least they were getting paid. I was working forty feet above the ground, breathing in sulfur fumes from Satans vomitorium, for free.Character building, my father said.Mandatory community service, the judge said. Court-ordered restitution for the Foul Deed. He nailed me with the bill for the damage I had done, which meant I had to sell my car and bust my hump at a landscaping company all summer. Oh, and he gave me six months of meetings with a probation officer who thought I was a waste of human flesh.Still, it was better than jail.I pushed the mop back and forth, trying to coat the seams evenly. We didnt want any rain getting into the building and destroying the classrooms. Didnt want to hurt the school. No, sir, we sure didnt." - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Quotes About Developers

"In the 1954 Internal Revenue Code, a Republican Congress changed forty-year, straight-line depreciation for buildings to permit accelerated depreciation of greenfield income-producing property in seven years. By enabling owners to depreciate or write off the value of a building in such a short time, the law created a gigantic hidden subsidy for the developers of cheap new commercial buildings located on strips. Accelerated depreciation not only encouraged poor construction, it also discouraged maintenance...After time, the result was abandonment." - Author: Dolores Hayden

Quotes About Being In Love With Yourself

"From the time I learned to love Jade and was drawn into the life of the Butterfield house, straight through to the wait for my case to come before the judge, there was nothing in my life that wasnt alive with meaning, that wasnt capable of suggesting weird and hidden significances, that didnt carry with it the undertaste of what for lack of anything better to call it Ill call The Infinite. If being in love is to be suddenly united with the most unruly, the most outrageously alive part of yourself, this state of piercing consciousness did not subside in me, as Ive learned it does in others, after a time. If my mind could have made a sound, it would have burst a row of wineglasses. I saw coincidences everywhere; meanings darted and danced like overheated molecules. Everything was terrifyingly complex; everything was terrifyingly simple. Nothing went unnoticed and everything carried with it a kind of drama." - Author: Scott Spencer
