Jonathan Nolan Quotes

"Youre different. Youre more perfect. Time is three things for most people, but for you, for us, just one. A singularity. One moment. This moment. Like youre the center of the clock, the axis on which the hands turn. Time moves about you but never moves you. It has lost its ability to affect you. What is it they say? That time is theft? But not for you. Close your eyes and you can start all over again. Conjure up that necessary emotion, fresh as roses."

Laura Zigman Quotes

Said Nurs Quotes

"Worry is itself an illness, since worry is an accusation against Divine Wisdom, a criticism of Divine Mercy."

Kay Mills Quotes

"Time dims memory. But not that kind. Somewhere in a corner of the brain, one little cell never forgets. It keeps the song that, heard again, recreates the room, the person, the moment. It preserves the phrase or the laugh or the gesture that resurrects a friend long gone. It knows precisely where you were and what you were doing when you heard about Pearl Harbor if youre old enough, or Kennedys assassination, or Martin Luther Kings, or the Challenger explosion. Every detail is frozen in memory, despite all the years. It keeps the innocuous question, too. The question that sometime later, when all the synapses are working, produces the epiphany, the moment when youre driving along and you realize that finally you understand. And why did it take you so long?"

Charles Bass Quotes

"U.S. nuclear technology is one of this nations most valuable secrets, and it should have been protected."

"The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction."

Quotes About Unhappy Relationships

"Among these temperamentally unhappy campers are "reactant" personalities, who focus on what they often wrongly perceive as others attempts to control them. In one experiment, some of these touchy individuals were asked to think of two people they knew: a bossy sort who advocated hard work and a mellow type who preached la dolce vita. Then, one of the names was flashed before the subjects too briefly to register in their conscious awareness. Next, the subjects were given a task to perform. Those who had been exposed to the hard-driving name performed markedly worse than those exposed to the easygoing name. Even this weak, subliminal attention to an emotional cue that suggested control was enough to get their reactant backs up and cause them to act to their own disadvantage. All relationships involve give-and-take and cooperation, so a person who habitually attends to ordinary requests or suggestions like a bull to a red flag is in for big trouble in both home and workplace." - Author: Winifred Gallagher

Quotes About Political Unfairness

"Voters, activists, and political leaders of the present day are in the position of medieval doctors. They hold simple, prescientific theories about the workings of society and the causes of social problems, from which they derive a variety of remedies – almost all of which prove either ineffectual or harmful. Society is a complex mechanism whose repair, if possible at all, would require a precise and detailed understanding of a kind that no one today possesses. Unsatisfying as it may seem, the wisest course for political agents is often simply to stop trying to solve societys problems." - Author: Michael Huemer
