Megan Wilson Quotes

"In the long run - everyone is different, but we are all human. Everyone deserves love no matter what they look like, everyone needs faith in their life, hope in their heart, and love to give for otherwise life will be terrible. Everyone makes mistakes, NO ONE is perfect (yes that means YOU reading this and it means ME as well). I believe we all need to be more accepting, less judgmental, more loving, less bitter, and more willing to look past the flaws at the person inside."

Quotes About Confronting Reality

"Supernatural fiction contains its own generic borderland: a neutral territory, which Tzvetan Todorov calls the fantastic, between the marvelous and the uncanny. According to Todorov, The fantastic is that hesitation experienced by a person who knows only the laws of nature, confronting an apparently supernatural event. Once the event is satisfactorily explained (and sometimes it is never explained), we have left the fantastic for an adjacent genre - either the uncanny, where the apparently supernatural is revealed as illusory, or the marvelous, where the laws of ordinary reality must be revised to incorporate the supernatural. As long as uncertainty reigns, however, we are in the ambiguous realm of the fantastic." - Author: Howard Kerr

Quotes About Pregnancy And Birth

"Beyond the immediate risks to her health and the health of her baby, when a woman chooses c-section, she decreases the chance that she will be able to get pregnant again and increases the chance that if she does get pregnant, the pregnancy will occur outside the uterus, a situation that never results in a live baby and is life-threatening to the woman. Furthermore, the risk of having an unexplained stillbirth doubles when a woman has had a previous c-section." - Author: Marsden Wagner

Quotes About Divan

"If she ever got fat, she thought, or if she ever said anything fat, she would lock herself in a bathroom and stay there until she died," thinks the young protagonist Molly Fawcett. "Often she thought how comfortably you could live in a bathroom. You could put a piece of beaver board on top of the tub and use it as a bed. In the daytime, you could have a cretonne spread on it so that it would look like a divan. You could use the you-know-what as a chair and the lavatory as a table. You wouldnt have to have anything else but some canned corn and marshmallows. . . ." - Author: Jean Stafford

Quotes About Enjoying Each Day

"As you take a few minutes each day to quiet your mind, you will discover a nice benefit: your everyday, "ordinary" life will begin to seem far more extraordinary. Little things thatpreviously went unnoticed will begin to please you. Youll be more easily satisfied, and happier all around. Rather than focusing on whats wrong with your life, youll find yourself thinking about and more fully enjoying whats right with your life. The world wont change, but your perception of it will. Youll start to notice thelittle acts of kindness and caring from other people rather than the negativity and anger." - Author: Jack Canfield

Quotes About Duror

"Cu siguranta, nu-l ura. Nu, ura trecuse cu mult timp in urma si cam tot de atunci se nascuse senzatia de rusine pentru ca avusese fata de el un sentiment care s-ar fi putut numi astfel. Respetul fata de el, generat de credinta ca avea calitati de pret, desi cu greu acceptat la inceput, incetase de la un timp a-l mai considera in neconcordanta cu simtamintele ei, iar acum respectul acesta crescuse, se modificase, devenise un soi de prietenie, datorita marturiilor ce-i fusesera atat de favorabile si datorita luminii atat de bune in care se plasase in ziua aceea. [...] Il respecta, il stima, ii era recunoscatoare, ii dorea numai binele, ar fi vrut doar sa stie cat dorea el ca binele acela sa fie legat de ea si in ce masura ar fi fost spre fericirea amandurora sa-si foloseasca puterile, pe care-si imagina ca inca le mai are, pentru a-l face sa-si reinnoiasca cererea." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Heuristics

"When heuristics dont yield the results we expect, youd think we would eventually realize that somethings wrong. Even if we dont locate the biases, we should be able to see the discrepancy between what we wanted and what we got, right? Well, not necessarily. As it turns out, we have biases that support our biases! If were partial to one option—perhaps because its more memorable, or framed to minimize loss, or seemingly consistent with a promising pattern—we tend to search for information that will justify choosing that option. On the one hand, its sensible to make choices that we can defend with data and a list of reasons. On the other hand, if were not careful, were likely to conduct an imbalanced analysis, falling prey to a cluster of errors collectively known as "confirmation biases." - Author: Sheena Iyengar
