[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.]

"The only person you resent is yourself."

Maureen OHara Quotes

"Comedy is difficult, especially slapstick. The trick is to have fun while you are performing it."

Phillip Adams Quotes

"Ive spent a life-time attacking religious beliefs and have not wavered from a view of the universe that many would regard as bleak. Namely, that it is a meaningless place devoid of deity.However Im unwilling simply to repeat the old arguments of the past when, in fact, God is a moving target and is taking all sorts of new shapes and forms. The arguments used against the long bow are not particularly useful when debating nuclear weapons, and the simple arguments against the old model gods are not sufficient when dealing with the likes of Davies et al.For example, the notion that God didnt exist, doesnt exist but may come into existence through the spread of consciousness throughout the universe is too clever to be pooh-poohed along Bertrand Russell lines. And if I had the time I could give you half a dozen other scientific theologies that will need snappier footwork from the atheist of the future."

Allison Winn Scotch Quotes

"That you can look back fondly or even wistfully on pieces of your life and hound yourself with endless what-ifs, but nothing will change. The present will still be the present. The future will still unfold as its meant to."

JR Stone Quotes

"Excerpt from "The Long Road from Perdition" for the day:"...Ive always been drawn to the ocean. It is here that I now feel peaceful and can lose my thoughts while immersed in the deafening sounds of waves crashing around me. The spray and mist of the oceans past seem to be a living, breathing yet wounded animal. The fury of the waves never settled and the spew of the foam touched all that dared to sit near it.There is no reason to flinch as the waves spray and crash against the shore. It is a natural progression I have learned to endure. However, it is the rescinding of the waves and fluid release of fury that I struggle to understand and coexist with peacefully. I hope one day to master it."

Trey Anastasio Quotes

"Im not trying to pull the rug out from under anybody, but the music really does tell you where to go."

Quotes About Field Artillery

"Think you a little din can daunt mine ears?Have I not in my time heard lions roar?Have I not heard the sea, puffed up with winds,Rage like an angry boar chafed with sweat?Have I not heard great ordinance in the field,And Heavens artillery thunder in the skies?Have I not in a pitched battle heardLoud larums, neighing steeds, and trumpets clang?And do you tell me of a womans tongue, That gives not half so great a blow to hearAs will a chestnut in a farmers fire?Tush! tush! fear boys with bugs.Grumio: For he fears none." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About The Liberation Of Holland

"It is in the capacity to love, that is to SEE, that the liberation of the soul from fantasy consists. The freedom which is a proper human goal is the freedom from fantasy, that is the realism of compassion. What I have called fantasy, the proliferation of blinding self-centered aims and images, is itself a powerful system of energy, and most of what is often called will or willing belongs to this system. What counteracts the system is attention to reality inspired by, consisting of, love." - Author: Iris Murdoch

Quotes About Family Exclusion

"But birth control can also be compelled by sinful motivations. These can include putting lesser priorities like career above higher priorities like family or greedily wanting to make as much income as possible to the exclusion of everything else, and not incur the costs of child raising; being selfish and not wanting to have to care for a child; or immaturely not wanting to take on the responsibility that good parenting requires." - Author: Mark Driscoll

Quotes About Apes

"In so far as I listen with interest to a record, its usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. Its a bit like jigsaw puzzles. Emptied out of the box, theres a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colours, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything--intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Musics like that."From "Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation" by Ben Watson, Verso, London, 2004, p. 440." - Author: Derek Bailey

Quotes About Dil

"The train swung around the curve, the engine puffing with short, heavy blasts, and they passed smoothly from sight that way, with that quality about them of shabby and timeless patience, of static serenity: that blending of childlike and ready incompetence and paradoxical reliability that tends and protects them it loves out of all reason and robs them steadily and evades responsibility and obligations by means too barefaced to be called subterfuge even and is taken in theft or evasion with only that frank and spontaneous admiration for the victor which a gentleman feels for anyone who beats him in a fair contest, and withal a fond and unflagging tolerance for whitefolks vagaries like that of a grandparent for unpredictable and troublesome children, which I had forgotten." - Author: William Faulkner

Quotes About Beer Mugs

"Evening prayerI spend my life sitting, like an angel in a barbers chair,Holding a beer mug with deep-cut designs,My neck and gut both bent, while in the airA weightless veil of pipe smoke hangs.Like steaming dung within an old dovecoteA thousand Dreams within me softly burn:From time to time my heart is like some oakWhose blood runs golden where a branch is torn.And then, when I have swallowed down my DreamsIn thirty, forty mugs of beer, I turnTo satisfy a need I cant ignore,And like the Lord of Hyssop and of MyrrhI piss into the skies, a soaring streamThat consecrates a patch of flowering fern." - Author: Arthur Rimbaud

Quotes About Late Father
