[It Seemed Like He Could Never Figure Out Which Trudie He Loved The Best, The Docile Church Basement Lady In The Moon Boots Or The Rebellious Chick With The Sexy Lingerie. I Imagine That Both Of Those Extremes Were Just Poses And That The Real Trudie Fell Somewhere In Between. But That's The Thing About This Town - There's No Room For In Between. You're In Or You're Out. You're Good Or You're Bad. Actually, Very Good Or Very Bad. Or Very Good At Being Very Bad Without Being Detected.]

Socrates Quotes

"I was attached to this city by the god—though it seems a ridiculous thing to say—as upon a great and noble horse which was somewhat sluggish because of its size and needed to be stirred up by a kind of gadfly. It is to fulfill some such function that I believe the god has placed me in the city. I never cease to rouse each and every one of you, to persuade and reproach youall day long and everywhere I find myself in your company."

Quotes About Properties Of Matter

"Though blessed with the enviable properties of a mink coat—graceful, unreasonable, and impractical no matter what she was draped over—she was nevertheless one of those people whose personality proved to be the bane of modern mathematicians. She was neither a flat nor solid shape. She showed no symmetry at all. Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics all proved useless. Her Pie Chart was a muddle of arbitrary wedges, her Line Graph, the silhouette of the Alps. And just when one listed her under Chaos Theory—Butterfly Effects, Weather Predictions, Fractals, Bifurcation diagrams and whatnot—she showed up as an equilateral triangle, sometimes even a square." - Author: Marisha Pessl

Quotes About Heartbreaking Love

"Music is storming, driving, relentless, devotional, slinky, subtle, heartbreakingly-beautiful sounds that, lyrically, switch from the cynical to the sanguine, the defeated to the defiant, dealing in love, war, beauty, children, romance, rejection, Pethedine, poetry, panties, God, Auden, Johnny Cash, cold potatoes, too-much-money, not enough money, writers block, flowers, animals and more flowers. But maybe Im projecting here." - Author: Nick Cave

Quotes About Vineyard

"And yet surely to alchemy this right is due, that it may be compared to the husbandman whereof Aesop makes the fable, that when he died he told his sons that he had left unto them gold buried under the ground in his vineyard: and they digged over the ground, gold they found none, but by reason of their stirring and digging the mould about the roots of their vines, they had a great vintage the year following: so assuredly the search and stir to make gold hath brought to light a great number of good and fruitful inventions and experiments, as well for the disclosing of nature as for the use of mans life." - Author: Aesop

Quotes About Functions

"If the estimated age of the cosmos were shortened to seventy-two years, a human life would take about ten seconds. But look at time the other way. Each day is a minor eternity of over 86,000 seconds. During each second, the number of distinct molecular functions going on within the human body is comparable to the number of seconds in the estimated age of the cosmos. A few seconds are long enough for a revolutionary idea, a startling communication, a babys conception, a wounding insult, a sudden death. Depending on how we think of them, our lives can be infinitely long or infinitely short." - Author: Robert Grudin

Quotes About Racconti

"Incenerire i sogni. Bruciare i sogni è il segreto per abbattere definitivamente i propri nemici, perché non trovino più la forza di rialzarsi e ricominciare. Non sognino le cose belle delle loro città, delle vite altrui, non sognino i racconti di altri, così pieni di libertà e di amore. Non sognino più nulla. Se non permetti alle persone di sognare, le rendi schiave." - Author: Alessandro DAvenia

Quotes About Pinwheels

"This is what you remember about him: not much, but then you have been assiduous in your forgetting. His red sweater, v-neck, cashmere; the clink of ice-cubes in a glass. He is shadow and voice, but you cannot recall his face. He is behind a closed door, in a forbidden room. He is asleep in his armchair, he is asleep in the driveway, asleep in your sandpit, face down, snoring but not harmless, even then. He is shouting, he is whispering, he is close but also remote as if at the end of a long hallway and you cannot hear him. His words never make any sense, he speaks some other language. His hands sometimes spin away from him like windmills, like pinwheels and Catherine wheels, snapping like firecrackers. There must be pain, but you cannot feel it.Your skin bruises like apples." - Author: Melanie Finn

Quotes About Good Singers

"I was a good sight reader and I could sing two or three of these jingles a day. An orchestra would come in for half an hour, and then the singers would come in and knock em out, and go on to the next one. I was the voice of Budweiser and Almond Joy." - Author: Valerie Simpson
