Susan Lynn Peterson Quotes

"When Americans find out I grew up in the tenements, the question they invariably ask me is "how did you end up there?" Americans, it seems, find comfort in reasons and explanations. They honestly believe that if they can find the reason for someone elses misfortune, they can avoid that misfortune themselves. If they could find out how I ended up in the tenements, they could assure themselves that it could never have happened to them."

Michael Paterniti Quotes

"At first, you fall in love. You wake in the morning woozy and your twilight is lit with astral violet light. You spelunk down into each other until you come to possess some inner vision of each other that becomes one thing. Us. Together. And time passes. Like the forming of Earth itself, volcanoes rise and spew lava. Oceans appear. Rock plates shift. Sea turtles swim half the ocean to lay eggs on the mother island; songbirds migrate over continents for berries from a tree. You evolve--cosmically and geologically. You lose each other and find each other again. Every day. Until love gathers the turtles and the birds of your world and encompasses them, too."

Mies Van Der Rohe Quotes

"Talent is only cream in your coffee. There is no reason to rest on your talent. If you dont present it, then it gets nowhere."

Peter Dawson Quotes

"You wait until the forest fire is on your front step before you step up."

"Fascinating ... The whole thing [the school dance] seems to work on a similar principle to a supercollider.

Quotes About Camouflage

"-so that for these few moments it actually seems that Ruprecht could be right, that everything, or at least the small corner of everything that is the Seabrook Sports Hall, is resonating to the same chord, the same feeling, the one that over a lifetime you learn a million ways to camouflage but never quite to banish - the feeling living in a world of apartness, of distances you cannot overcome; its almost as if the strange out-of-nowhere voice is the universe itself, some hidden aspect of it that rises momentarily over the motorway-roar of space and time to console you, to remind you that although you cant overcome the distances, you can still sing the song -- out into the darkness over the separating voids, towards a fleeting moment of harmony..." - Author: Paul Murray

Quotes About Babies Hands

"Young women are closer to the time when they were manipulative and childish and they dont let their babies manipulate them as much as older mothers do. These are only my conclusions from watching children in grocery stores. I love to watch them work on their mothers to get what they want, and, because I am always a child, Im pulling for them to get the candy and to get it NOW. The other day I watched a little blond beauty pull her mothers face to her and lay her hands on her mothers cheeks and kiss her nose. Needless to say they opened the bag of cookies then and there." - Author: Ellen Gilchrist

Quotes About Brownian Motion

"Fat Charlie was thirsty and his head hurt and his mouth tasted evil and his eyes were too tight in his head and all his teeth twinged and his stomach burned and his back was aching in a way that started around his knees and went up to his forehead and his brains had been removed and replaced with cotton balls and needles and pins which was why it hurt to try and think, and his eyes were not just too tight in his head but they must have rolled out in the night and been reattached with roofing nails; and now he noticed that anything louder than the gentle Brownian motion of air molecules drifting softly past each other was above his pain threshold. Also, he wished he were dead." - Author: Neil Gaiman
