Andrew W Saul Quotes

"Good nutrition and vitamins do not directly cure disease, the body does. You provide the raw materials and the inborn wisdom of your body makes the repairs. Someday healthcare without megavitamin therapy will be seen as we today see childbirth without sanitation or surgery without anaesthetic."

Richard Armitage Quotes

"As far as this citizen is concerned, the decision to commit men and women, who are also sons and daughters, to combat is an extraordinarily important one, and not to be done to just feel good; to be done to absolutely accomplish a mission."

Larry Tanner Quotes

"We parents are an extension of our children, not the other way around. We are their conscience until it becomes their responsibility to tell themselves whats right and necessary. We are their butlers until they are fully able to get the items they need and can clean up after themselves. We are their cheerleaders until they learn how to develop their own confidence and motivation. We are their counselors until they are able to take the lead in making the tough decisions that affect them."

Edward Rocklin Quotes

"Family comes first" is indeed a powerful principle, but so is the imperative for your own development. It is not a self-explanatory or self-applying principle, and it can collide with other principles."

Phoenix Desmond Quotes

"Even the wise appear foolish before one who brings peace to another."

Colleen Haskell Quotes

"Comic timing... is how to have a relationship with the camera and deal with the camera without looking like you are."

Quotes About Voyage

"However, the balloon, lightened of heavy articles, such as ammunition, arms, and provisions, had risen into the higher layers of the atmosphere, to a height of 4,500 feet.

Quotes About Astro

"As a kid, I imagined lots of different scenarios for my life. I would be an astronaut. Maybe a cartoonist. A famous explorer or rock star. Never once did I see myself standing under the window of a house belonging to some druggie named Carbine, waiting for his yard gnome to steal his stash so I could get a cab back to a cheap motel where my friend, a neurotic, death-obsessed dwarf, was waiting for me so we could get on the road to an undefined place and a mysterious Dr. X, who would cure me of mad cow disease and stop a band of dark energy from destroying the universe." - Author: Libba Bray

Quotes About Linchi

"Ask me anything, Bailey challenged.What are you scared of? The question got out of Tibbys mouth before she meant to ask it. Bailey thought. Im afriad of time, she answered. She was brave, unflinching in the big Cyclops eye of the camera. There was nothing prissy or self-conscious about Bailey. I mean, Im afraid of not having enough time, she clarified. Not enough time to understand people, how they really are, or to be understood myself. Im afraid of the quick judgments and mistakes that eerybody makes. You cant fix them without time. Im afraid of seeing snapshots instead of movies. Tibby looked at her in disbelief. She was struck by this new side of Bailey, this philosophical-beyond-her-years Bailey. Did cancer make you wise? Did those chemicals and X rays supercharge her twelve-year-old brain?" - Author: Ann Brashares
