[It Is Very Desirable To Have A Word To Express The Availability For Work Of The Heat In A Given Magazine; A Term For That Possession, The Waste Of Which Is Called Dissipation. Unfortunately The Excellent Word Entropy, Which Clausius Has Introduced In This Connexion, Is Applied By Him To The Negative Of The Idea We Most Naturally Wish To Express. It Would Only Confuse The Student If We Were To Endeavour To Invent Another Term For Our Purpose. But The Necessity For Some Such Term Will Be Obvious From The Beautiful Examples Which Follow. And We Take The Liberty Of Using The Term Entropy In This Altered Sense ... The Entropy Of The Universe Tends Continually To Zero.]

Kristen Schaal Quotes

"I think growing up on a farm in a certain amount of isolation, with not a lot of friends nearby, makes you entertain yourself and kind of grows your imagination - being alone is quite good for all that. You make up stories, talk to the animals, let them be an audience, a bunch of cows."

Abe Kobo Quotes

"The dial of the clock wears out unevenly; Most worn Is the area round eight. As it is stared at with abrasive glancesunfailingly twice a day, It is weathered away. On the other side The area at two Is only half as worn, For closed eyes at nightPass without stopping. If there is one who possesses a flat watch evenly worn, It is he who, failing at the start, is running one lap behind. Thus the world is always A lap fast--The world he thinks he sees Has not yet begun. Illusory time, When the hands stand vertically on the dial; Without the bell announcing the raising of the curtain, The play has come to an end."
