Liz Jensen Quotes

"Hangovers are a vivid form of vengeance. Last night my apartment became the venue for a small, introverted chardonnay festival. A melancholy choir of Bulgarians provided the entertainment, via a set of headphones that ended up irredeemably tangled beneath the bed. Part of me just watched. The other part was in charge."

Hofmann Quotes

"I hope that in due time the chemists will justify their proceedings by some large generalisations deduced from the infinity of results which they have collected. For me I am left hopelessly behind and I will acknowledge to you that through my bad memory organic chemistry is to me a sealed book. Some of those here, Hofmann for instance, consider all this however as scaffolding, which will disappear when the structure is built. I hope the structure will be worthy of the labour. I should expect a better and a quicker result from the study of the powers of matter, but then I have a predilection that way and am probably prejudiced in judgment."

Quotes About Roller Blades

"Roller Boogie is a relic from - when else? - the 70s. This is a tape I made for the eight-grade dance. The tape still plays, even if the cogs are a little creaky and the sound quality is dismal. Its a ninety-minute TDK Compact Cassette, and like everything else made in the 70s, its beige. It takes me back to the fall of 1979, when I was a shy, spastic, corduroy-clad Catholic kid from the suburbs of Boston, grief-stricken over the 78 Red Sox. The words "douche" and "bag" have never coupled as passionately as they did in the person of my thirteen-yer-old self. My body, my brain, my elbows that stuck out like switchblades, my feet that got tangled in my bike spokes, but most of all my soul - these formed the waterbed where douchitude and bagness made love sweet love with all the feral intensity of Burt Reynolds and Rachel Ward in Sharkeys Machine." - Author: Rob Sheffield

Quotes About Goriot

"However gross a man may be, the minute he expresses a strong and genuine affection, some inner secretion alters his features, animates his gestures, and colors his voice. The stupidest man will often, under the stress of passion, achieve heights of eloquence, in thought if not in language, and seem to move in some luminous sphere. Goriots voice and gesture had at this moment the power of communication that characterizes the great actor. Are not our finer feelings the poems of the human will?" - Author: Honoré de Balzac

Quotes About Cuba

"HECUBA: I had a knife in my skirt, Achilles. When Talthybius bent over me, I could have killed him. I wanted to. I had the knife just for that reason. Yet, at the last minute I thought, hes some mothers son just as Hector was, and arent we women all sisters? If I killed him, I thought, wouldnt It be like killing family?Wouldnt it be making some other mother grieve? So I didnt kill him, but if I had, I might have saved Hectors child. Dead or damned, thats the choice we make. Either you men kill us and are honored for it, or we women kill you and are damned for it. Dead or damned. Women dont have to make choices like that in Hades. There is no love there, nothing to betray." - Author: Sheri S. Tepper

"And you wont look at any of us!""Its you lot who wont look at me!" said Harry angrily."Maybe youre taking it in turns to look and keep missing each other," suggested Hermione, the corners of her mouth twitching." - Author: J.K. Rowling

Quotes About Change And Progress

"Wherever sufficiently numerous series of the remains of any given group, which has endured for a long space of time, are carefully examined, their morphological relations are never in discordance with the requirements of the doctrine of evolution, and often afford convincing evidence of it. At the same time, it has been shown that certain forms persist with very little change, from the oldest to the newest fossiliferous formations; and thus show that progressive development is a contingent, and not a necessary result, of the nature of living matter." - Author: Thomas Henry Huxley
