"An enemy is defeated by keeping quite, a demon by a prayer."

Bruce Ames Quotes

"Almost all the world is natural chemicals, so it really makes you re-think everything. A cup of coffee is filled with chemicals. Theyve identified a thousand chemicals in a cup of coffee. But we only found 22 that have been tested in animal cancer tests out of this thousand. And of those, 17 are carcinogens. There are ten milligrams of known carcinogens in a cup of coffee and thats more carcinogens than youre likely to get from pesticide residues for a year!"

Henry Petroski Quotes

"I emphasize that virtually every engineering calculation is ultimately a failure calculation, because without a failure criterion against which to measure the calculated result, it is a meaningless number."

Andrej Nikolaidis Quotes

"Svakako vam je neko, barem jednom u životu, postavio pitanje: The Beatles ili The Rolling Stones? Odgovorite mi na to pitanje dok ste još mladi i reći ću vam sve što želite znati o svojoj budućnosti. Znam mnoge darovite i dobre ljude, koji su propali, razmišljajući godinama kasnije: gdje sam pogriješio? A odgovor leži tamo gdje nikome ne pada na pamet da ga traže: u mladosti, kada ste birali izmeđi Beatlesa i Stonesa. I molim vam, nemojte mi sada reći: pa ne moram da biram - može oboje. Takvi prođu najgore."

Almudena Grandes Quotes

"Cuando pasa algo malo, pero malo de verdad, por mucho que llores, lo peor no es llorar, que eso a veces está bien, porque te quedas nuevo, lo peor empieza cuando no puedes llorar más, y entonces te das cuenta de que la tristeza es algo sucio, como un grumo gris, espeso, una pelota de barro dentro de los pulmones, que pesa, y la notas al respirar, todo el tiempo."

Quotes About Speed Boats

"Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, at high speed, her eyes fixed on the road, Abigail asked, a little loudly above the hum, Do you think that neurosis is when you lie to yourself so much that other people start to notice? Christopher, whod been looking through the blurred bridge railing down to the boats on the bay, turned and responded, I think its when your past is like a floor set on water and it wont right itself, so youre shifting your weight and contorting yourself in ways that only make sense to you because no one else can see how youre trying to balance yourself, how youre trying just to stand." - Author: Lindsay Hill

Quotes About Dubious

"The story is that while a child named Servius Tullius lay sleeping, his head burst into flames in the sight of many. The general outcry which so great a miracle called forth brought the king and queen to the place. One of the servants fetched water to quench the fire, but was checked by the queen, who stilled the uproar and commanded that the boy should not be disturbed until he awoke of himself. Soon afterwards sleep left him, and with it disappeared the flames. Then, talking her husband aside, Tanaquil Said: Do you see this child whom we are bringing up in so humble a fashion? Be assured he will one day be a lamp to our dubious fortunes, and a protector to the royal house in the day of its distress. Let us therefore rear with all solicitude one who will lend high renowen to the state and to our family. It is said that from that moment the boy began to be looked upon as a son, and to be trained in the studies by which men are inspired to bear themselves greatly." - Author: Titus Livy

Quotes About Roda

"Kakvo sam to govno bio ja? Umeo sam ocigledno da igram neke prljave, nestvarne igre. Šta me je teralo na to? Yar sam pokušavao da proturim svejedno kao nešto? Da li sam mogao i dalje da govorim sebi kako je to u suštini stvar istrazivanja, prosto jedna studija zenskog roda? Jednostavno sam pustio da se stvari dešavaju, bez razmišljanja o njima. Nije me bilo briga ni za šta osim za svoje sebično, jeftino uzivanje. Pravi razmazeni srednoškolac." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Achtung

"Die Einsamkeit des Künstlers, überhaupt des begabten Menschen, halte ich für unvermeidlich, einerlei, ob einer Glück und Erfolg hat oder nicht. Ebenso begreiflich und im Grund richtig scheint mir, daß der Begabte, der Mensch mit Phantasie, diese Einsamkeit möglichst dissimuliert. Denn so unvermeidlich es ist, daß der Mann mit Talent früher oder später die öde, traurige Beschränktheit des Durchschnittsmenschen bemerkt, so sehr muß er sich gegen diese Einsicht wehren, weil sie am Ende zu einer Lieblosigkeit und Menschenverachtung führen würde, die er auch nicht ertrüge. Aber die große, oft eisige Einsamkeit des Künstlers oder Denkers inmitten der Dutzendmenschen ist, ob verheimlicht oder nicht, immer da, sie ist der Preis, den wir dafür zahlen, daß wir vor jenen manches voraus haben." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Rubber Bands

"Well... I had braces and I had to wear headgear! I loved my braces, actually. For me, they were like a piece of jewelry! Instead of the silver or pewter I had gold braces. It was so much fun, I loved them. I got to change the colors and stuff and I had the rubber bands." - Author: Jordin Sparks

Quotes About The Beach And Sun

"Translate into words for me the sighings of the wind through the forest and the withdrawal of the sea down the pebbly beach and the string of sunlight playing on the hyacinth-strewn grass. You cannot! Then you know why the apostle described his experiences in Paradise as unspeakable." - Author: F.B. Meyer

Quotes About Planting A Garden

"I love planting. I love digging holes, putting plants in, tapping them in. And I love weeding, but I dont like tidying up the garden afterwards." - Author: Jamaica Kincaid

Quotes About Unchanging

"The best approach to religious codes that have become rigid and absolute is to acknowledge their arbitrariness and use them, if we use them at all, as a private discipline for ordering our own chaos. When they are proclaimed as the bearer of absolute and unchanging truth, defended in the traditional way, they enslave the human spirit rather than protect it from its own excesses. Jesus vision burned through the external systems to the anxious human heart that lay beneath them and called for its transformation into a perfection of love." - Author: Richard Holloway

Quotes About Being Cautious In Life

"If you are forced to confront your fears on a daily basis, they disintegrate, like illusions when viewed up close. Maybe being always protected made me more fearful, and I would later dip cautiously into the outside world, never allowing myself to be submerged completely, and always jerking back into the familiarity of my own life when my senses were overwhelmed. For years I would stand with a foot in each sphere, drawn to the exotic universe that lay on the other side of the portal, wrenched back by the warnings that sounded like alarm bells in my mind." - Author: Deborah Feldman
