Philip Levine Quotes

"My temperament is not geared to that of a novelist."

Warren G Bennis Quotes

"Neoteny is more than retaining a youthful appearance, although that is often part of it. Neoteny is the retention of all those wonderful qualities that we associate with youth: curiosity, playfulness, eagerness, fearlessness, warmth, energy. Unlike those defeated by time and age, our geezers have remained much like our geeks – open, willing to take risks, hungry for knowledge and experience, courageous, eager to see what the new day brings. Time and lost steal the zest from the unlucky, and leave them looking longingly at the past. Neoteny is a metaphor for the quality – and the gift – that keeps the fortunate of whatever age focused on all marvelous undiscovered things to come."

Timothy Spall Quotes

"Imagination is a beast that has to be put in a cage."

Youka Nitta Quotes

"Fate is but a dying wish... Of a world that is beyond control. Like a single lotus flower, the future blossoms; Upon its petals, two people shall be free."

Eric Frank Russell Quotes

"You seem to fit the part all right. Your technical record is first-class. Your disciplinary record stinks to high heaven. He eyed his listener blank faced. Two charges of refusing to obey a lawful order. Four for insolence and insubordination. One for parading with your cap on back to front. What on earth made you do that?I had a bad attack of what-the-hell, sir, explained Leeming."

Barbara Frediani Quotes

"I versi partono da una testa e arrivano ad unaltra su una traiettoria invisibile e producono la vita impalpabile delle emozioni: graffi sullanima prodotti da sogni lucidi che lanciano una solida gomena fra quello che siamo e quello che siamo stati, fra noi e noi a ricordarci che la via più breve, dalla testa al cuore, è sempre unarabesco."

Fiona Apple Quotes

"Because for whatever reason, even though I want to stay home all the time and be left alone, I want to tell the world who I am now."

Olafur Eliasson Quotes

"Every city is always changing, on its own trajectory."

Paul R Halmos Quotes

"The spectacular thing about Johnny [von Neumann] was not his power as a mathematician, which was great, or his insight and his clarity, but his rapidity; he was very, very fast. And like the modern computer, which no longer bothers to retrieve the logarithm of 11 from its memory (but, instead, computes the logarithm of 11 each time it is needed), Johnny didnt bother to remember things. He computed them. You asked him a question, and if he didnt know the answer, he thought for three seconds and would produce and answer."

Brianna Wiest Quotes

"Its a great privilege to not know where youll end up, just where youre headed. Its the only way to get there."

"If theres any guy crazy enough to attack me, Im going to show him the end of the world -- close up. Im going to let him see the kingdom come with his own eyes. Im going to send him straight to the southern hemisphere and let the ashes of death rain all over him and the kangaroos and the wallabies." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Riding Horses

"...Orlando, to whom fortune had given every gift--plate, linen, houses, men-servants, carpets, beds in profusion--had only to open a book for the whole vast accumulation to turn to mist. The nine acres of stone which were his house vanished; one hundred and fifty indoor servants disappeared; his eighty riding horses became invisible; it would take too long to count the carpets, sofas, trappings, china, plate, cruets, chafing dishes and other movables often of beaten gold, which evaporated like so much sea mist under the miasma. So it was, and Orlando would sit by himself, reading, a naked man." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Eisenhower

"Eisenhower had about the most expressive face I ever painted, I guess. Just like an actors. Very mobile. When he talked, he used all the facial muscles. And he had a great, wide mouth that I liked. When he smiled, it was just like the sun came out." - Author: Norman Rockwell

Quotes About Heathcliffs Revenge In Wuthering Heights

"YESTERDAY afternoon set in misty and cold. I had half a mind to spend it by my study fire, instead of wading through heath and mud to Wuthering Heights. On coming up from dinner, however, (N.B. - I dine between twelve and one oclock; the housekeeper, a matronly lady, taken as a fixture along with the house, could not, or would not, comprehend my request that I might be served at five) - on mounting the stairs with this lazy intention, and stepping into the room, I saw a servant-girl on her knees surrounded by brushes and coal-scuttles, and raising an infernal dust as she extinguished the flames with heaps of cinders. This spectacle drove me back immediately; I took my hat, and, after a four-miles walk, arrived at Heathcliffs garden-gate just in time to escape the first feathery flakes of a snow-shower." - Author: Emily Brontë

Quotes About Abolitionists

"What created democracy was Thomas Paine and Shays Rebellion, the suffragists and the abolitionists and on down through the populists and the labor movement, including the Wobblies. Tough, in your face people... Mother Jones, Woody Guthrie... Martin Luther King and Caesar Chavez. And now its down to us." - Author: Jim Hightower

Quotes About Lotus

"And so it came about that the demon king Mara found himself staring at a most unwelcome intruder. He glared at the naked old man sitting in lotus position before his throne. Nothing like it had happened in a long while."Go away," Mara growled. "Just because you got here doesnt mean you cant be destroyed." The old man didnt move. His yogic concentration must have been strong, because his lean brown body, as tough as the sinew showing under its skin, grew sharper in out-line. Mara would have commanded some lesser demons to torment the intruder, but these hermits werent so easily dismissed, so Mara bided his time." - Author: Deepak Chopra

Quotes About Love Languages

"And though he continued never to express a single word of love for me, not in any way of his several languages, I could not take a hint. Let the hint be written across the heavens in skywriting done by several planes - I was dense. Even skywriting, well, it wasnt always certain: it might not cover the whole entire sky, or some breeze might smudge it, so who could really say for sure what it said? Even skywriting wouldnt have worked! Several years later, I would wonder why I had thought my feelings for this man were anything but a raw, thrilling, vigilant infatuation. But I still had called them love. I was in love. I had learned the Portuguese and the Arabic for love, but all for naught." - Author: Lorrie Moore

Quotes About Retornar

"Hay realidades que difícilmente podrán ser probadas por la ciencia o por las deducciones de la razón pura. Nadie puede concebir esas verdades mientras permanezca en el reino de la experiencia humana. Cuando hayáis acabado aquí abajo, cundo completéis vuestro recorrido de prueba en la carne, cuando el polvo que forma el tabernáculo mortal sea devuelto a la tierra de donde procede, entonces, sólo entonces, el Espíritu que os habita retornará al Dios que os lo ha regalado y tu pregunta quedará plenamente satisfecha. Caballo de Troya 3" - Author: J.J. Benítez

Quotes About Presentation Of Food

"Dana daydreamed of one day being able to set her agenda at B.Altman with the same courage and tenacity as the woman who was now driving the VW while speaking animatedly about her travel plans for the near future.
