Quotes About Tano

"Con le macchine pensano di far miracoli: ma quali? Di Dio non sentono più bisogno; ma che sortii di miracolo saranno? Per esempio, non si deve più parlare di alto e di basso: a loro non serve più. Aristotele, che per tutto il resto considerano alla stregua di una vecchia ciabatta, ha detto (e questo lo citano): «Se la spola del telaio girasse da sola, se il plettro della cetra suonasse da sé, i maestri non avrebbero più bisogno di aiutanti, né i padroni di servi». Ed è quello che sta avverandosi mi sa." - Author: Bertolt Brecht

Quotes About Being Fantastic

"Theres a kind of theology at work here. The bombs are a kind of god. As his power grows, our fear naturally increases. I get as apprehensive as anyone else, maybe more so. We have too many bombs. They have too many bombs. Theres a kind of theology of fear that comes out of this. We begin to capitulate to the overwhelming presence. Its so powerful. It dwarfs us so much. We say let the god have his way. Hes so much more powerful than we are. Let it happen, whatever he ordains. It used to be that the gods punished men by using the forces of nature against them or by arousing them to take up their weapons and destroy each other. Now god is the force of nature itself, the fusion of tritium and deuterium. Now hes the weapon. So maybe this time we went too far in creating a being of omnipotent power. All this hardware. Fantastic stockpiles of hardware. The big danger is that well surrender to the sense of inevitability and start flinging mud all over the planet." - Author: Don DeLillo

Quotes About Comments

"You give too much attention to things that make you unhappy, Allison says. No doubt she is right. And yet attending to things that make Hannah unhappy--its such a natural reflex. It feels so intrinsic, it feels in some ways like who she is. The unflattering observations she makes about other people, the comments that get her in trouble, arent these truer than small talk and thank-you notes? Worse, but truer. And underneath all the decorum, isnt most everyone judgmental and disappointed? Or is it only certain people, and can she choose not to be one of them--can she choose this without also, like her mother, just giving in?" - Author: Curtis Sittenfeld

Quotes About Reality Check

"According to Benedicts scheme, the community reads through... the entire book of Psalms every week. The monks are therefore exposed... to all the despairing, doubtful, bitter, vindictive, jingoistic, nationalistic, and seemingly racist passages in the Psalter. It is not that every sentiment expressed by a psalmist is admirable, but that in praying the Psalms, we confront ourselves as we really are. The Psalms are a reality check to keep prayer from becoming sentimental, superficial, or detached from the real world." - Author: Richard H. Schmidt

Quotes About 327

"I tried to dig out of the computer a call directory for Luna. But it was still sulking. I could not get it to list its own directory. So I tried some test problems on it.

So I gave up." - Author: Robert A. Heinlein
