Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu Quotes

"I have devoted my whole life to Physical Culture. I shall devote the rest too for the same. I have seen the degradation in which we are at present. I have travelled extensively and all that I have remarked here is from experience; and my suggestions are to meet the situation. I know they would, if adapted remedy the evil; for, I have studied carefully the position. If we in all seriousness wish to call ourselves the descendants of the mighty Yoddhas of past, if we wish not to cast a blot on the fair name of India, if we wish that India should have a future vying with its glorious past, if we wish that we should gain an honorable and equal place among the peoples of the world it should be our sacred resolve from now to wake up from the sleep as a lion; we should muster muscle and steel the body. For all greatness lies in Culture and 1 should only be too gratified if my scheme could put the youth of the country on the right track to achieve our most cherished Ideals."

Quotes About Vincere

"Offri al popolo gare che si possono vincere ricordando le parole di canzoni molto popolari, o il nome delle capitali dei vari Stati dellUnione o la quantità di grano che lo Iowa ha prodotto lanno passato. Riempi loro i crani di dati non combustibili, imbottiscili di "fatti" al punto che non si possano più muovere tanto son pieni, ma sicuri dessere "veramente bene informati". Dopo di che avranno la certezza di pensare, la sensazione del movimento, quando in realtà sono fermi come un macigno. E saranno felici, perché fatti di questo genere sono sempre gli stessi." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Extraordinary Service

"We have this extraordinary conceit in the West that while weve been hard at work in the creation of technological wizardry and innovation, somehow the other cultures of the world have been intellectually idle. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nor is this difference due to some sort of inherent Western superiority. We now know to be true biologically what weve always dreamed to be true philosophically, and that is that we are all brothers and sisters. We are all, by definition, cut from the same genetic cloth. That means every single human society and culture, by definition, shares the same raw mental activity, the same intellectual capacity. And whether that raw genius is placed in service of technological wizardry or unraveling the complex thread of memory inherent in a myth is simply a matter of choice and cultural orientation." - Author: Wade Davis

Quotes About Shriek

"Harl whirled round, all his attention ... on Skulker. "What is that on your carapace?""What?" Skulker tried to peer back... A tinny voice issued from somewhere... It took Skulker a moment to recognize it as that of the human male he earlier encountered. "Its CTD gecko mine - yield of about five kilotones." Skulkers shriek terminated in a blast that peeled back four square kilometers of jungle canopy and sunk a crater down to the bedrock." - Author: Neal Asher
