[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.]

Jacques Loeb Quotes

"Will it be possible to solve these problems? It is certain that nobody has thus far observed the transformation of dead into living matter, and for this reason we cannot form a definite plan for the solution of this problem of transformation. But we see that plants and animals during their growth continually transform dead into living matter, and that the chemical processes in living matter do not differ in principle from those in dead matter. There is, therefore, no reason to predict that abiogenesis is impossible, and I believe that it can only help science if the younger investigators realize that experimental abiogenesis is the goal of biology."

Jamie Canosa Quotes

"Soft and sweet, and burning like fire all at once, his lips clung to mine desperately. His large hand cupped the back of my head,pulling me even closer, and my arms wrapped around his neck holding him close. His kiss devoured me and left me aching for more."

Richard Rhodes Quotes

"If youre afraid you cant write, the answer is to write. Every sentence you construct adds weight to the balance pan. If youre afraid of what other people will think of your efforts, dont show them until you write your way beyond your fear. If writing a book is impossible, write a chapter. If writing a chapter is impossible, write a page. If writing a page is impossible, write a paragraph. If writing a paragraph is impossible, write a sentence. If writing even a sentence is impossible, write a word and teach yourself everything there is to know about that word and then write another, connected word and see where their connection leads."

Glenn Greenwald Quotes

"The purpose of whistleblowing is to expose secret and wrongful acts by those in power in order to enable reform."

Osman Bakar Quotes

"The sun symbolizes the Divine intelligence; the empty vastness of space symbolizes the Divine All-Possibility and also the Divine immutability; a bird symbolizes the soul; a tree symbolizes the grades of being; and water symbolizes knowledge and rain revelation."

Quotes About Demanding The Best

"I should understand the land, not as a commodity, an inert fact to be taken for granted, but as an ultimate value, enduring and alive, useful and beautiful and mysterious and formidable and comforting, beneficent and terribly demanding, worthy of the best of mans attention and care... [My father] insisted that I learn to do the hand labor that the land required, knowing--and saying again and again--that the ability to do such work is the source of a confidence and an independence of character that can come no other way, not by money, not by education." - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Neoplatonism

"If were stuck on one world, were limited to a single case; we dont know what else is possible. Then—like an art fancier familiar only with Fayoum tomb paintings, a dentist who knows only molars, a philosopher trained merely in NeoPlatonism, a linguist who has studied only Chinese, or a physicist whose knowledge of gravity is restricted to falling bodies on Earth—our perspective is foreshortened, our insights narrow, our predictive abilities circumscribed. By contrast, when we explore other worlds, what once seemed the only way a planet could be turns out to be somewhere in the middle range of a vast spectrum of possibilities. When we look at those other worlds, we begin to understand what happens when we have too much of one thing or too little of another. We learn how a planet can go wrong." - Author: Carl Sagan
