Aravind Adiga Quotes

"Me, and thousands of others in this country like me, are half-baked, because we were never allowed to complete our schooling. Open our skulls, look in with a penlight, and youll find an odd museum of ideas: sentences of history or mathematics remembered from school textbooks (no boy remembers his schooling like the one who was taken out of school, let me assure you), sentences about politics read in a newspaper while waiting for someone to come to an office, triangles and pyramids seen on the torn pages of the old geometry textbooks which every tea shop in this country uses to wrap its snacks in, bits of All India Radio news bulletins, things that drop into your mind, like lizards from the ceiling, in the half hour before falling asleep--all these ideas, half formed and half digested and half correct, mix up with other half-cooked ideas in your head, and I guess these half-formed ideas bugger one another, and make more half-formed ideas, and this is what you act on and live with."

Hyam Maccoby Quotes

"Theology is just not important in Judaism, or in any other religion, really. Theres no orthodoxy, as you have it in the Catholic Church. No complicated creeds to which everybody must subscribe. No infallible pronouncements by a pope. Nobody can tell Jews what to believe. Within reason, you can believe what you like... We have orthopraxy instead of orthodoxy. Right practice rather then right belief. Thats all. You Christians make such a fuss about theology, but its not important in the way you think. Its just poetry, really, ways of talking about the inexpressible."

Katherine Harmon Courage Quotes

"Octopuses are tough--and not just in the sense that they can take out sharks (both real and computer generated, as in Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus). Theyre almost pure muscle. With tridirectional muscles in the arms, theyre a tad less supple than a well-marbled sirloin, to say the least (though certainly a lot more healthful). So over the centuries, people have been finding ways to make them a little easier on the jaw.The classic tactic is beating the bejesus out of them on rocks."

Sage Cohen Quotes

"Id say that most of these [poems in Jason Mashaks book SALTY AS A LIP] are just straightforward enough, but not entirely explainable or attributable to a single cause/effect, which makes them the kind of poems I want to read many times… "Salty as a lip" is my favorite. Its so alive: strange and human / earthy and raw. Mysterious but grounded. Mashak has manifested paradox, it seems. Bravo!"

Robby Krieger Quotes

"We made some mistakes. We had some managers we didnt like and had to get rid of, and that cost some money. Stuff like that. But overall, we did really well."

Tiffanie DeBartolo Quotes

"I would have remembered the good stuff. Nobody ever remembers the good stuff."

Quotes About Embodied

"[T]he new weird represents a productive experiment in fantasy fiction. The New Wave of the 1960s and 1970s arguably embodied science fictions claim to literary seriousness.
