Utah Phillips Quotes

"Frying-Pan Jack and I were in that camp, thats where he said to me, hed been tramping since 1927, I told myself in 27, if I cannot dictate the conditions of my labor, I will henceforth cease to work. You dont have to go to college to figure these things out, no sir. He said, I learned when I was young that the only true life I had was the life of my brain. But if its true that the only real life I had was the life of my brain, what sense does it make to hand that brain to someone for eight hours a day, for their particular use, on the presumption that at the end of the day they will give it back in an unmutilated condition? Fat chance!"

David Darling Quotes

"No one, from pontiffs to professors, has a monopoly on the truth. In the end, we are all just travelers--not scientists or mystics or any one brand of thinker. By nature, we are scientists and mystics, reductionists and holists, left-brained and right-brained, mixed up creatures trying to catch an occasional glimpse of the truth. The best we can do is to be tolerant of both sides of our nature--knowing that these reflect the twin aspect of the universe--and learn from whatever wisdom is offered."

Larry Tanner Quotes

"We parents are an extension of our children, not the other way around. We are their conscience until it becomes their responsibility to tell themselves whats right and necessary. We are their butlers until they are fully able to get the items they need and can clean up after themselves. We are their cheerleaders until they learn how to develop their own confidence and motivation. We are their counselors until they are able to take the lead in making the tough decisions that affect them."

Quotes About Nilsen

"Ive been quoting the book [on Peter Sutcliffe] constantly in rehearsals. Some members of the cast have stated their disapproval that it should even have been written. Some of the women have expressed more - disgust and anger. What are they saying? Theyd prefer not to know, not to understand? Theyd prefer certain areas of life to be censored?

Quotes About Monopoly Game

"Buffetts uncommon urge to chronicle made him a unique character in American life, not only a great capitalist but the Great Explainer of American capitalism. He taught a generation how to think about business, and he showed that securities were not just tokens like the Monopoly flatiron, and that investing need not be a game of chance. It was also a logical, commonsensical enterprise, like the tangible businesses beneath. He stripped Wall Street of its mystery and rejoined it to Main Street -- a mythical or disappearing place, perhaps, but one that is comprehensible to the ordinary American." - Author: Roger Lowenstein

Quotes About Setting

"Knowledge equals power...The string was important. After a while the Librarian stopped. He concentrated all his powers of librarianship.Power equals energy...People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.Energy equals matter...He swung into an avenue of shelving that was apparently a few feet long and walked along it briskly for half an hour.Matter equals mass.And mass distorts space. It distorts it into polyfractal L-space.So, while the Dewey system has its fine points, when youre setting out to look something up in the multidimensional folds of L-space what you really need is a ball of string." - Author: Terry Pratchett
