[It Is Not What The Man Of Science Believes That Distinguishes Him, But How And Why He Believes It. His Beliefs Are Tentative, Not Dogmatic; They Are Based On Evidence, Not On Authority Or Intuition.]

Quotes About Mitigate

"Another quirk of Dads was that although he could remember an infinite number of intricate surgical maneuvers and enough random details and trivia to run any Jeopardy! champion under the table, he found it patently impossible to remember basic things like phone numbers, appointments, or what in the world he had actually walked into the room to do. To mitigate this flaw, he wrote everything down, usually on whatever was handiest. This left his office looking like the heavens had opened and rained leaves of paper for forty days and forty nights." - Author: Hilary Duff

Quotes About No Cares

"The donkey nibbled on his butt. "What the hell!" Leaping a foot, Ozzie jerked around. The donkey was right THERE, not two inches from him, his ears laid back and his big brown eyes soulful. How had the damned thing moved so silently? "Hes just being friendly." Marci shared that special smile that felt like a caress. "He likes you." Appalled, Ozzie said, "He likes my ass." And he backed out of the donkeys reach. "I do, too." No, no, no. He wasnt about to touch that one. "Itd help if youd just be quiet, Marci." Unaffected by his dark mood, she laughed. "Lighten up, Osbourne. Its not my fault, or the donkeys that you have such an irresistible bod."-Osbourne and Marcie" - Author: Lori Foster

Quotes About Smisao

"Ali upamti da strah nije ništadrugo doli osjećaj - nije stvaran. Nikada nemoj bježati od svojih strahova; uvijek hrli premanjima. Mjesto na kojemu prebivaju tvoji najveći strahovi ujedno je i mjesto najvećeg razvoja.A budući da je razvoj smisao ljudskog života, prihvati sjajnu mogućnost koju ti nudi strah.Kao što sam već rekao, ono čega se plašiš nudi ti vrlo plodno tlo za samospoznaju." - Author: Robin S. Sharma

Quotes About The Search For Meaning

"I must talk, and you must listen, for we are engaged here in the most important pursuit in history: the search for meaning. What is the nature of being a person? What is the best way to go about being a person? How did we come to be, and what will become of us when we are no longer? In short: What are the rules of this game, and how might we best play it?" - Author: John Green

Quotes About Devoutness

"To babble unintelligible prayers, to read masses, to recite rosaries, to practice ceremonies of religious worship empty of meaning, this is the conduct of the dead. Man tries to turn completely into an object, to subject himself entirely to the rule of what is alien. Such service is called devoutness. PHARISEES!" - Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Quotes About Waking Up Another Day

"The day of democracy is past," he said. "Past for ever. That day began with the bowmen of Crecy, it ended when marching infantry, when common men in masses ceased to win the battles of the world, when costly cannon, great ironclads, and strategic railways became the means of power. To-day is the day of wealth. Wealth now is power as it never was power before—it commands earth and sea and sky. All power is for those who can handle wealth...." - Author: H.G. Wells

Quotes About Liberal Intolerance

"Liberal attitudes towards the other are characterized both by respect for otherness, openness to it, and an obsessive fear of harassment. In short, the other is welcomed insofar as its presence is not intrusive, insofar as it is not really the other. Tolerance thus coincides with its opposite. My duty to be tolerant towards the other effectively means that I should not get too close to him or her, not intrude into his space—in short, that I should respect his intolerance towards my over-proximity. This is increasingly emerging as the central human right of advanced capitalist society: the right not to be ‘harassed, that is, to be kept at a safe distance from others." - Author: Slavoj Žižek

Quotes About Turcotte

"A text by a minority writer is effective only if it succeeds in making the minority point of view universal. (The Universal and the Particular)" ... In claiming the lesbian point of view as universal, she overturns the concepts to which we are accustomed. For up to this point, minority writers had to add "the universal" to their points of view if they wished to attain the unquestioned universality of the dominant class. Gay men, for example, have always defined themselves as a minority and never questioned, despite their transgression, the dominant choice. This is why gay culture has always had a fairly wide audience. [From the Foreword "Changing the Point of View" by Louise Turcotte]" - Author: Monique Wittig

Quotes About Artistic License

"In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research. Its a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In Robin Hood, you have more artistic license - its all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable." - Author: Joanne Froggatt
