[Louise Was An Urbanite, She Preferred The Gut-thrilling Sound Of An Emergency Siren Slicing Through The Night To The Noise Of Country Birds At Dawn. Pub Brawls, Rackety Roadworks, Mugged Tourists, The Badlands On A Saturday Night - They All Made Sense, They Were All Part Of The Huge, Dirty, Torn Social Fabric. There Was A War Raging Out There In The City And She Was Part Of The Fight, But The Countryside Unsettled Her Because She Didn't Know Who The Enemy Was. She Had Always Preferred North And South To Wuthering Heights. All That Demented Running Around The Moors, Identifying Yourself With The Scenery, Not A Good Role Model For A Woman.]

Quotes About Hating Everyone

"Mrs. Forbes said that hating yellow and borwn is just being silly. And Siobhan said that she shouldnt say things like that and everyone has favorite colors. And Siobhan was right. But Mrs. Forbes was a bit right, too. Because it is sort of being silly. But in life you have to take lots of decisions and if you dont take decisions you would never do anything because you would spend all your time choosing between things you could do. So it is good to have a reason why you hate some things and you like others. It is like being in a restaurant like when Father takes me out to a Berni Inn sometimes and you look at the menu and you have to choose what you are going to have. But you dont know if you are going to like something because you havent tasted it yet, so you have favorite foods and you choose these, and you have foods you dnot like and you dont choose these, and then it is simple." - Author: Mark Haddon

Quotes About Good Turtles

"Anyway.Im not allowed to watch TV, although I am allowed to rent documentaries that are approved for me, and I can read anything I want. My favorite book is A Brief History of Time, even though I havent actually finished it, because the math is incredibly hard and Mom isnt good at helping me. One of my favorite parts is the beginning of the first chapter, where Stephen Hawking tells about a famous scientist who was giving a lecture about how the earth orbits the sun, and the sun orbits the solar system, and whatever. Then a woman in the back of the room raised her hand and said, "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." So the scientist asked her what the tortoise was standing on. And she said, "But its turtles all the way down!"I love that story, because it shows how ignorant people can be. And also because I love tortoises." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About The External World

"We have learnt that the exploration of the external world by the methods of physical science leads not to a concrete reality but to a shadow world of symbols, beneath which those methods are unadapted for penetrating. Feeling that there must be more behind, we return to our starting point in human consciousness - the one centre where more might become known. There we find other stirrings, other revelations than those conditioned by the world of symbols... Physics most strongly insists that its methods do not penetrate behind the symbolism. Surely then that mental and spiritual nature of ourselves, known in our minds by an intimate contact transcending the methods of physics, supplies just that... which science is admittedly unable to give." - Author: Arthur Stanley Eddington
