GR Reader Quotes

"You wont believe this. 99% of reviews on GoodBetterBestReads are written by less than one percent of the members.Did you hear that? 99%! Lets repeat it. 99%. Lets repeat it. 99%.Now, the thing is, we thought that by getting one percent to do all the writing, we could sell to the 100%.We placed a lot of trust in the one percent. Can you see our dilemma?A lot of peoples welfare depended on the one percent.What would happen to our cocktails and our cars and our condos, if the one percent staged a strike?"

John Mighton Quotes

"If non-linear leaps in intelligence and ability are possible, why havent these effects been observed in our schools? I believe the answer lies in the profound inertia of human thought: when an entire society believes something is impossible, it suppresses, by its very way of life, the evidence that would contradict that belief."

Quotes About Marked

"But there is a fatality, a feeling so irresistible and inevitable that it has the force of doom, which almost invariably compels human beings to linger around and haunt, ghost-like, the spot where some great and marked event has given the colour to their lifetime; and, still the more irresistibly, the darker the tinge that saddens it." - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Quotes About Antevasin

"A Sanskrit word appeared in the paragraph: ANTEVASIN. It means, ‘one who lives at the border. In ancient times, this was a literal description. It indicated a person who had left the bustling center of worldly life to go live at the edge of the forest where the spiritual masters dwelled. The antevasin was not of the villagers anymore-not a householder with a conventional life. But neither was he yet a transcendent-not one of those sages who live deep in the unexplored woods, fully realized. The antevasin was an in-betweener. He was a border-dweller. He lived in sight of both worlds, but he looked toward the unknown. And he was a scholar." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Quotes About Eldredge

"I published that theory [of speciational evolution] in a 1954 paper…and I clearly related it to paleontology. Darwin argued that the fossil record is very incomplete because some species fossilize better than others... I noted that you are never going to find evidence of a small local population that changed very rapidly in the fossil record... Gould was my course assistant at Harvard where I presented this theory again and again for three years. So he knew it thoroughly. So did Eldredge. In fact, in his 1971 paper Eldredge credited me with it. But that was lost over time." - Author: Darwin

Quotes About Quality In The Workplace

"All of us—employers, parents, schools, government agencies, and interns themselves—are complicit in the devaluing of work, the exacerbation of social inequality, and the disillusionment of young people in the workplace that are emerging as a result of the intern boom. Informal, barely studied, and little regulated, internships demand our scrutiny. We need a view of the entire sprawling system and its history, a glimpse of its curious blend of privilege and exploitation; we need to hear from interns themselves, and also from those who proffer internships, the people who sell them, the few who work to improve them, an the many who are unable to access them at all. only then can we consider ethical, legal alternatives to a system that is broken, a practice that is often poisonous." - Author: Ross Perlin

Quotes About Emotional Barriers

"Despite our instinct to polarize ourselves in the name of survival, an indescribable connection - call it love or compassion - pervades and dissolves our apparent separation. This oneness transcends physical and emotional relationships; its a deep connection that surfaces only when the ego-laden barriers are lifted." - Author: Rajeev Kurapati
