Ben Rattray Quotes

"In college, I was always disappointed by lectures that covered social problems but failed to identify what I could do to change them. Part of the problem was that many professors simply didnt believe they had a role in converting awareness to action."

Jan Kaplicky Quotes

Mary Wollstonecraft Quotes

"True sensibility, the sensibility which is the auxiliary of virtue, and the soul of genius, is in society so occupied with the feelings of others, as scarcely to regard its own sensations."

Donald McKay Quotes

"I do not write by any set time schedule. I realize there are many writers who follow a daily regime where they arise at 6:00 a.m., do some sort of exercise, eat breakfast and then sit down and produce words for a three to four hour period."

Caryl Chessman Quotes

"My soul is not for sale."

Giovanni Papini Quotes

"A ciência é uma sucessão de hipóteses que se contradizem, de teorias que se contrapõem, de concepções caducas e de esperanças mortas. E a Ciência, tal como soterrou a Magia, poderá um dia ser morta e substituída por um modo de conhecimento superior.Vangloria-se de reduzir as fadigas e as infelicidades dos homens e, com a a ajuda proporcionada à indústria, multiplicou as necessidades e, portanto, o trabalho e a escravidão, aumentando com os conhecimentos inúteis e a vida mais insaciável, a nossa carga de dores.Pretende substituir-se ao sacerdote e não consegue responder às exigências mais desesperadas acerca do destino e da morte, pelo que os homens, após uma longa embriaguez de cientismo, regressam, pouco a pouco, às revelações da fé."

George Gershwin Quotes

"I want to say at once that I frankly believe that Irving Berlin is the greatest songwriter that has ever lived.... His songs are exquisite cameos of perfection, and each one of them is as beautiful as its neighbor. Irving Berlin remains, I think, Americas Schubert."

Leo Batic Quotes

"-He leído muchos libros sobre gente con viviones, capacidades extra sensoriales o poderes desconocidos para el resto, y he sacado dos conclusiones.-¿Cuáles?-Una es que los hombres tenemos muchas capacidades pero les tenemos miedo.Preferimos ser todos iguales antes que poseer un poder que el resto no comprenda. Un talento no es algo peligroso. Por el contrario. Todos tenemos un don particular, único. Este mundo está hecho por la gente que no se conformó con lo establecido. Ingenieros, médicos, artistas, siempre aparece alguien que logra captar algo que para el resto es inaccesible..."

Henry Rollins Quotes

"I get tired of talking when I want to be silent."

Julie Roberts Quotes

"My Christmases have always just been very simple and about family."

Quotes About Pampas

"There was just one moon. That familiar, yellow, solitary moon. The same moon that silently floated over fields of pampas grass, the moon that rose--a gleaming, round saucer--over the calm surface of lakes, that tranquilly beamed down on the rooftops of fast-asleep houses. The same moon that brought the high tide to shore, that softly shone on the fur of animals and enveloped and protected travelers at night. The moon that, as a crescent, shaved slivers from the soul--or, as a new moon, silently bathed the earth in its own loneliness. THAT moon." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Girl Hunters

"The Babar the Elephant book is sitting in front of me. I pick it up and start reading it.

He fought Tomb Raiders in Egypt, I fought alongside him. He rescued his elephant girlfriend from Ivory Hunters on the Savanna, I coordinated the getaway.

Me and Babar, kicking some motherfucking ass." - Author: James Frey
