Benjamin Silliman Quotes

Shirley A Stave Quotes

"However, Hardys relationship with nature is a dialectical one. While he indicates that he recognizes how human perception shapes nature, he nevertheless accepts nature as possessed of its own agency, as working through its cycle regardless of human perception, understanding, or attempted control. In essence, it claims a power apart from that with which humans may have imbued it. Even when humanity has lost faith in the possibility of renewal through nature, nature as Hardy describes it fights back, attempting to force human consciousness to acknowledge her power, her ability to transform life."

Steve Holt Quotes

"What you believe determines the way you feel and act... but it doesnt change the truth."

Gail Giles Quotes

Quotes About Scientific Discoveries

"What is it with science these days? Everyone is so quick to believe in it, in all these new scientific discoveries, new pills for this, new pills for that. Get thinner, grow hair, yada, yada, yada, but when it requires a little faith in something you all go crazy.

Quotes About Admiration Tumblr

"I have no admiration for culture. I have no reserve knowledge, no provisional knowledge. And everything that I learn, I learn for a particular task, and once its done, I immediately forget it, so that if ten years later, I have to get involved with something close to or directly within the same subject, I would have to start again from zero, with some few exceptions." - Author: Gilles Deleuze

Quotes About Melaka

"Dia tahu, bahawa sultan dan pembesar negeri Melaka itu sudah maklum sejak tahun 1448, pasti Portugis akan datang kembali menyerang! Tetapi kenapa Melaka hanya sibuk menyediakan damak untuk racun pada anak panahnya, tetapi tidak menyediakan timah, untuk 38 pucuk meriam besarnya yang dibeli dari Turki? Kenapa Melaka mampu berbelanja untuk dayang-dayang istana, sultan dan pembesar negeri berlebihan waktu dan tenaga untuk menggiliri selir, tetapi tidak berbelanja membina armada? Kenapa Melaka begitu mudah beri gelar laksamana kepada pendekar silat, tetapi tidak membina kekuatan daya tempur angkatan laut?" - Author: Arena Wati

Each and every one of us has and important role to play in completing that task." - Author: Joan Biskupic

Quotes About Wanting A Relationship Tumblr

"People talk a lot about all the homosexuals there are to see in Greenwich Village, but it was all the neuters that caught my eye that day. These were my people -- as used as I was to wanting love from nowhere, as certain as I was that almost anything desirable was likely to be booby-trapped." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Sorrow And Pain

"In the past I had often tried to escape the grown-up world of sorrow through my imagination- dreaming that a handsome young lieutenant would ride to my rescue or that a great empresario would discover my musical talents and whisk me away. I had envisioned knights in shining armor and happily ever after scenes to escape from rules or boredom or pain; including a vision of my mother walking through our front door whole and well again. Now I knew that a lifetime of escape led to a life like Aunt Berties. My imagination was a gift, but I had to live in the real world. My eyes had been opened this summer to poverty and crime and abuse and I needed to use my imagination not to escape, but to help people like Irina and Katya, to make my own contribution as the women in the womens pavilion had done. I couldnt do it in the same way Jane Adams and my grandmother and Aunt Mat were, but I would find my own way and my own time." - Author: Lynn Austin

Quotes About Ancient Ruins

"On the heights above the river Xzan, at the site of certain ancient ruins, Iucounu the Laughing Magician had built a manse to his private taste: an eccentric structure of steep gables, balconies, sky-walks, cupolas, together with three spiral green glass towers through which the red sunlight shone in twisted glints and peculiar colors." - Author: Jack Vance

Quotes About Catchwords

"All significant truths are private truths. As they become public they cease to become truths; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst, catchwords." - Author: T. S. Eliot

Quotes About Untenable

"The relevant question is not whether back then a few extraordinary individuals could overcome a system strongly weighted against them or whether today an admittedly far greater number requiring far less talent can succeed. The real question is whether its harder for the people in this audience to succeed be they extraordinary, average, or below average. If it is, and I think it obvious that it is, then thats untenable in a country that purports to provide equal opportunity for all. Now of course youll dispute my claim that it is more difficult to succeed for them. You say the battles over. I say not only is it not over but you yourself are stationed on the frontline of the battle and have been all these years. This room and the criminal justice system as a whole is the frontline. This is where modern-day segregation lives on." - Author: Sergio De La Pava

Quotes About Fugacidad

"Cada hora del hombre es un lugar vivo de nuestra existencia que ocurre una sola vez, irremplazable para siempre. Aquí reside la tensión de la vida, su grandeza, la posibilidad de que la inasible fugacidad del tiempo se colme de instantes absolutos, de modo que al mirar hacia atrás, el largo trayecto se nos aparece como el desgranarse de días sagrados, inscriptos en tiempos o en épocas diferentes." - Author: Ernesto Sabato
