"You can always try another approach; even change your subject when a scientific strategy or experiment fails."

Alvaro Mutis Quotes

"On land I have too much time, Im overwhelmed by a boredom that eventually paralyzes me. But this isnt really the main reason for my suicide. Even if I had another chance to go to sea, I know that for a long time Ive been storing up something I can only define as a weariness with being alive, with having to choose between one thing and another, with listening to people around me talk about things that basically dont interest them, that they really know nothing about. The foolishness of our fellow humans knows no bounds, my dear Gaviero. If it didnt sound absurd, Id say Im leaving because I cant stand the noise the living make."

William Sheldon Quotes

"Continued observations in clinical psychological practice lead almost inevitably to the conclusion that deeper and more fundamental than sexuality, deeper than the craving for social power, deeper even than the desire for possessions, there is a still more generalized and universal craving in the human make-up. It is the craving for knowledge of the right direction - for orientation."

Kevin J Vanhoozer Quotes

"Sola scriptura means at least this: that the churchs proclamation is always subject to potential correction from the canon. It is for this reason that we resist simply collapsing the text into the tradition of its interpretation and performance."

Rachel Abbott Quotes

"She searched her mind for a single day when it had felt good to be alive. There must have been one, surely?"

Anna Jeffrey Quotes

"Instinct caused a woman who had once been so attractive to still attempt makeup and hairdos, Marisa guessed, but more often than not, the effort came off with Mama looking like a clown. Seeing it broke Marisas heart, but she didnt interfere. Her mother didnt know the difference and these days, it was rare for anyone but Marisa to see her. What little family they had seldom came and Mamas friends in Agua Dulce, out of respect, were reluctant to gawk at her decline."

Quotes About Limitations

"If the meaning of life has become doubtful, if ones relations to others and to oneself do not offer security, then fame is one means to silence ones doubts. It has a function to be compared with that of the Egyptian pyramids or the Christian faith in immortality: it elevates ones individual life from its limitations and instability to the plane of indestructability; if ones name is known to ones contemporaries and if one can hope that it will last for centuries, then ones life has meaning and significance by this very reflection of it in the judgments of others." - Author: Erich Fromm

Quotes About Heartless Parents

"A thousand times today Ive started to open my mouth, started to squeak out, "Can you tell me...?

Assault and battery, a question mark used like a club. My parents are old and fragile. Id have to heartless to want to hurt them." - Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix

Quotes About Being Done Trying

"What drove me? I think most creative people want to express appreciation for being able to take advantage of the work thats been done by others before us. I didnt invent the language or mathematics I use. I make little of my own food, none of my own clothes. Everything I do depends on other members of our species and the shoulders that we stand on. And a lot of us want to contribute something back to our species and to add something to the flow. Its about trying to express something in the only way that most of us know how—because we cant write Bob Dylan songs or Tom Stoppard plays. We try to use the talents we do have to express our deep feelings, to show our appreciation of all the contributions that came before us, and to add something to that flow. Thats what has driven me." - Author: Walter Isaacson
