Marcela Paz Quotes

Christopher Harman Quotes

"The dream was floating off satisfactorily on an inner sea."

Dennis Gabor Quotes

"I do not know of anything in modern poetry as violently hostile to contemporary life as was the poetry of T. S. Eliot, which so perfectly fitted the mood of the young people between the two wars. I also find much more benevolence towards humanity in younger historians than there was in Spengler or in Toynbee. Still, it is not difficult to sense the disgust of the intellectuals at the new prosperous working class, with their eyes glued to the television screen, who have become indifferent to radical ideas."

Shakieb Orgunwall Quotes

"Even when were right, we may be wrong. If--in the process of debate--weve hurt the heart of another being, it matters not whether we issued a perfectly executed unbroken chain of logic.

Linwood Barclay Quotes

"My biggest complaint about drivers out in the country has tended to be that theyre not in a great hurry to get where theyre going. This is particularly true of old men wearing hats.

Quotes About Advancement

"Now that the wars are coming to an end, I wish you to prosper in peace. May all mortals from now on live like one people in concord and for mutual advancement. Consider the world as your country, with laws common to all and where the best will govern irrespective of tribe. I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do, both among Greeks and Barbarians. I am not interested in the descendance of the citizens or their racial origins. I classify them using one criterion: their virtue. For me every virtuous foreigner is a Greek and every evil Greek worse than a Barbarian. If differences ever develop between you never have recourse to arms, but solve them peacefully. If necessary, I should be your arbitrator." - Author: Alexander the Great

But Mary kept doing it anyway, begging him to let the world turn without him tonight because everything was all right—which it wasnt, because even his best friend, Judas, was acting weird." - Author: Jennifer Gooch Hummer

Quotes About Persuasive Advertising

"Everywhere, words are mixing. Words and lyrics and dialogue are mixing in a soup that could trigger a chain reaction.

The way rain dances called storms,the right combination of words might call down tornadoes. Too many advertising jingles commingling could be behind global warming. Too manytelevision reruns bouncing around might cause hurricanes. Cancer. AIDS." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk
