Harold Hobbs Quotes

"One wide-awake persistent enemy may be worth twenty friends. Friends point out all the good things you do. You know all about that. Your enemies point out your mistakes. Get yourself a first-class enemy, cultivate him, and when you achieve success thank him."

Muddy Waters Quotes

"Our little house was way back in the country. We had one house close to us, and hell the next one wouldve been a mile. If you got sick, you could holler and wouldnt nobody hear you."

Rowland Miller Quotes

"Moreover, in conversations with women, men do most of the talking (Haas, 1979), and despite hackneyed stereotypes about women being more talkative than men, were apparently used to this pattern. When people listen to record-ings of conversations, they think its more disrespectful and assertive for a woman to interrupt a m~ than vice versa (Lafrance, 1992)."

Ivan Pavlov Quotes

"It is clear to all that the animal organism is a highly complex system consisting of an almost infinite series of parts connected both with one another and, as a total complex, with the surrounding world, with which it is in a state of equilibrium."

Rodica Ojog Brasoveanu Quotes

"Vîrsta ne schimbă atît de mult, uneori uiţi că ai fost copil, ai impresia că te-ai născut aşa, bătrîn, şi totuşi sînt unele fleacuri care-ţi rămîn adînc înrădăcinate. Clişee unde adultul dă mîna cu puştiul care trăgea la fit şi tocea peste vară la teorema lui Pitagora. De cînd mă ştiu, prima ninsoare m-a scos din minţi... Îmi venea să urlu de bucurie... Ca şi mirosul ăla special din martie. Un miros de verde, de pămînt..."

Muhammad Yunus Quotes

"I am not a capitalist in the simplistic left/right sense. But I do believe in the power of the global free-market economy and in using capitalist tools. I believe in the power of teh free market and the power of capital in the marketplace. I also believe that providing unemployment benefits is not the best way to address poverty. The able-bodied poor dont wan tor need charity. The dole only increases their misery, robs them of incentive and, more important, of self-respect."

Quotes About Eggs And Life

"I tried to imagine what it would be like if Constantin were my husband.It would mean getting up at seven and cooking him eggs and bacon and toast andcoffee and dawdling about in my nightgown and curlers after hed left for work to wash up the dirty plates and make the bed, and then when he came home after a lively, fascinating day hed expect a big dinner, and Id spend the evening washing up even more dirty plates till I fell into bed, utterly exhausted. This seemed a dreary and wasted life for a girl with fifteen years of straight As, but I knew thats what marriage was like, because cook and clean and wash was just what Buddy Willards mother did from morning till night, and she was the wife of a university professor and had been a private school teacher herself." - Author: Sylvia Plath

Quotes About Paralyzed

"The great incestuous wish is to flow on, one with time, to merge the great image of the beyond with the here and now. A fatuous, suicidal wish that is constipated by words and paralyzed by thought." - Author: Henry Miller

Quotes About Reading Books

"Im never going to complain about receiving free early copies of books, because clearly theres nothing to complain about, but it does introduce a rogue element into ones otherwise carefully plotted reading schedule. ...Being a reader is sort of like being president, except reading involves fewer state dinners, usually. You have this agenda you want to get through, but you get distracted by life events, e.g., books arriving in the mail/World War III, and you are temporarly deflected from your chosen path." - Author: Nick Hornby

Quotes About Getting Kicked

"The simple and terrifying reality, forbidden from discussion in America, was that despite spending $600 billion a year on the military, despite having the best fighting force the world had ever known, they were getting their asses kicked by illiterate peasants who made bombs out of manure and wood." - Author: Michael Hastings

"Acting is ephemeral. You cant hang it on a wall. You cant throw it off. And you cant bring it out of a closet. Its there one night and its gone the next, at least with stage acting anyhow." - Author: Charles Durning

Quotes About Passen

"When counting on learning from innovation, there are great successes but also failures. The Wright Brothers invented the aircraft and started an amazing process of innovation, where we now have planes that carry 500 passengers. Along the way there were some silly looking vehicles that crashed early on." - Author: Sheldon Whitehouse

Quotes About Faces Expression

"Just consider a child who, absorbed in play, forgets himself—this is the moment to take a snapshot; when you wait until he notices that you are taking a picture, his face congeals and freezes, showing his unnatural self-consciousness rather than his natural graciousness. Why do most people have that stereotyped expression on their faces whenever they are photographed? This expression stems from their concern with the impression they are going to leave on the onlooker. It is "cheese" that makes them so ugly. Forgetting themselves, the photographer, and the future onlooker would make them beautiful." - Author: Viktor E. Frankl

Quotes About Wicked Stepmothers

"It is through hearing stories about wicked stepmothers, lost children, good but misguided kings, wolves that suckle twin boys, youngest sons who receive no inheritance but must make their own way in the world, and eldest sons who waste their inheritance on riotous living and go into exile to live with the swine, that children learn or mislearn both what a child and what a parent is, what the cast of characters may be in the drama into which they have been born and what the ways of the world are." - Author: Alasdair MacIntyre
