[Neutrinos, They Are Very Small.They Have No Charge And Have No MassAnd Do Not Interact At All.The Earth Is Just A Silly BallTo Them, Through Which They Simply Pass,Like Dustmaids Down A Drafty HallOr Photons Through A Sheet Of Glass.They Snub The Most Exquisite Gas,Ignore The Most Substantial Wall,Cold Shoulder Steel And Sounding Brass,Insult The Stallion In His Stall,And, Scorning Barriers Of Class,Infiltrate You And Me. Like TallAnd Painless Guillotines They FallDown Through Our Heads Into The Grass.At Night, They Enter At NepalAnd Pierce The Lover And His LassFrom Underneath The Bed—you CallIt Wonderful; I Call It Crass.]

Quotes About Duck Calling

"As they started across the road, a boy biked by,shooting Grant a quick look before he ducked his chin on his chest and pedaled away."One of your admirers?" Gennie asked dryly."I chased him and three of his friends off the cliffs a few weeks back.""Youre a real sport."Grant only grinned, remembering his first reaction had been fury at having his peace interrupted, then fear that the four careless boys would break their necks on the rocks. "Ayah," he said, recalling with pleasure the acid tongue-lashing hed doled out."Do you really kick sick dogs?" she asked as she caught the gleam in his eye."Only on my own land." - Author: Nora Roberts

Quotes About Greed And Pride

"The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility...According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride.

Lewis

Quotes About Rights And Duties

"Our Negro problem, therefore, is not of the Negros making. No group in our population is less responsible for its existence. But every group is responsible for its continuance.... Both races need to understand that their rights and duties are mutual and equal and their interests in the common good are idential.... There is no help or healing in apparaising past responsibilities or in present apportioning of praise or blame. The past is of value only as it aids in understanding the present; and an understanding of the facts of the problem--a magnanimous understanding by both races--is the first step toward its solution." - Author: Isabel Wilkerson
