Dorothy M Kennedy Quotes

"According to Wallace, the expectation that art amuses is a poisonous lesson for a would-be artist to grow up with, since it places all of the power with the audience, sometimes breeding resentment on the part of the author. I can see it in myself and in other young writers, he told McCaffery: this desperate desire to please coupled with a kind of hostility to the reader. Wallace expressed his hostility by writing unwieldy sentences, refusing to fulfill readers expectations, and bludgeoning the reader with data--all strategies he used to wrestle back some of the power held by modern audiences."

John Wilbanks Quotes

"If a scientist is reading a paper online and clicks through to purchase material, theres value there. It might be a business model; it might be enough to defray the cost of open access. I just want to create the infrastructure that makes movement and sharing easier."

Ensan Case Quotes

"Like war, love - all kinds of love - is for men who can take it. If they dare."

Sue Atchley Ebaugh Quotes

"The process of living, for each of us, is pretty similar. For every gain there is a setback. For every success, a failure. For every moment of joy, a time of sadness. For every hope realized, one is dashed."

Sellapan Ramanathan Quotes

"You are slowly developing some multinationals of your own. We certainly hope that some of them will look in this direction when they look for opportunities because the progress of Southeast Asia is important to China, just as Chinas progress is important to us."

Herophilus Quotes

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied."

Gregory Maguire Quotes

"Thats the real power of art, I think. Not to chide but to provoke challenge. Otherwise why bother?"

Quotes About Play Dough

"Were living in a funny world kid, a peculiar civilization. The police are playing crooks in it, and the crooks are doing police duty. The politicians are preachers, and the preachers are politicians. The tax collectors collect for themselves. The Bad People want us to have more dough, and the good people are fighting to keep it from us. Its not good for us, know what I mean? If we had all we wanted to eat, wed eat too much. Wed have inflation in the toilet paper industry. Thats the way I understand it. Thats about the size of some of the arguments Ive heard." - Author: Jim Thompson

Quotes About Real Life Monsters

"As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcotts March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen Kings books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I dont write to protect them. Its far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed." - Author: Sherman Alexie

Quotes About Chia

"Tale è la potenza disgregatrice di un uragano: essa isola lindividuo dai suoi simili. Un terremoto, una frana, una valanga soverchiano luomo incidentalmente, per così dire senza passione. La furia delluragano invece lo attacca come un nemico personale, cerca di afferrargli le membra, gli sabbarbica alla mente, tenta di sradicare da lui perfino lanima." - Author: Joseph Conrad

Quotes About Soldiers Being Away From Home

"Grieving, like being blind, is a strange business; you have to learn how to do it. We seek company in mourning, but after the early bursts of tears, after the praises have been spoken, and the good days remembered, and the lament cried, and the grave closed, there is no company in grief. It is a burden borne alone." - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin

Quotes About Honoring Heroes

Quotes About Cytology

"As long as museums and universities send out expeditions to bring to light new forms of living and extinct animals and new data illustrating the interrelations of organisms and their environments, as long as anatomists desire a broad comparative basis human for anatomy, as long as even a few students feel a strong curiosity to learn about the course of evolution and relationships of animals, the old problems of taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution will gradually reassert themselves even in competition with brilliant and highly fruitful laboratory studies in cytology, genetics and physiological chemistry." - Author: William King Gregory

Quotes About Alpha Delta Pi

"Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because theyre so frightfully clever. Im awfully glad Im a Beta, because I dont work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I dont want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. Theyre too stupid to be able to read or write. Besides they wear black, which is such a beastly color. Im so glad Im a Beta." - Author: Aldous Huxley

Quotes About Being The Same As Everybody Else

"I never saw "being different" in and of itself as the point to "being Goth" -- dressing different from most others, maybe, but the point to me was to get together with people who liked the same music and clothes, or at least very similar music and clothes, and go to clubs, go to movies, go to coffee-houses and hold poetry readings and, in general, just have some good harmless fun. Did I look like a dork? Sure, but so did everybody else in the club. We werent "being different", at least not all of us, we just were different and the point was to stop bitching about being different and just have fun." - Author: Ruadhán J. McElroy

Quotes About Major And Minor

"This was the fall of 2004. The wider world was deeply fucked, and home also. Two American wars raging—bloodbaths each, bloodbath major and bloodbath minor, ugly, squirrelly hateful clandestine wars marked by betrayal, incompetence and corruption. Dont get me started." - Author: Claire Messud
