[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.]

Ted Tinling Quotes

"The day you give priority to bogus ethics over human reactions, you become a loser. Human reactions are priceless. Rules should never, ever stifle emotions. Tennis is a very human game facing a great danger that it will be strangulated in a cats cradle of unnecessary or inhumane rules."

Quotes About Othello Sexism

"Coleridges description of Iagos actions as "motiveless malignancy" applies in some degree to all the Shakespearian villains. The adjective motiveless means, firstly, that the tangible gains, if any, are clearly not the principal motive, and, secondly, that the motive is not the desire for personal revenge upon another for a personal injury. Iago himself proffers two reasons for wishing to injure Othello and Cassio. He tells Roderigo that, in appointing Cassio to be his lieutenant, Othello has treated him unjustly, in which conversation he talks like the conventional Elizabethan malcontent. In his soliloquies with himself, he refers to his suspicion that both Othello and Cassio have made him a cuckold, and here he talks like the conventional jealous husband who desires revenge. But there are, I believe, insuperable objections to taking these reasons, as some critics have done, at their face value." - Author: W.H. Auden

Quotes About Reality And Fiction

"How often do you ignore a dream, dismiss it as fantasy and then see echoes of the dream around you the following day? What if a dream were the forewarning of what will become your reality; if you are being told within the world of a dream what may occur in the near or distant future, but your mind mangles the truth and information so much that you discard it as fiction?" - Author: Samantha Robertson

Quotes About Deductive

"Theologians, and religionists in general, start with a fantasy premise and then proceed to apply rigorous formal logic to tease out its implications. Stark himself points out that "theology consists of formal reasoning about God." This is admirably exact. Theologians, beginning with a wished-for creation of their own minds, analyze that creations characteristics by rigorous application of the principles of formal—that is, deductive—logic." - Author: Andrew Bernstein

Quotes About Sumo Wrestling

"Spaces devoted to Hannibal Lecters earliest years differ from the other archives in being incomplete. Some are static scenes, fragmentary, like painted attic shards held together by blank plaster. Other rooms hold sound and motion, great snakes wrestling and heaving in the dark and lit in flashes. Pleas and screaming fill some places on the grounds where Hannibal himself cannot go. But the corridors do not echo screaming, and there is music if you like." - Author: Thomas Harris
