Quotes About Fluid Mechanics

Quotes About Alcoholism Addiction

"Depression is about anger, it is about anxiety, it is about character and heredity. But it is also about something that is in its way quite unique. It is the illness of identity, it is the illness of those who do not know where they fit, who lose faith in the myths they have so painstakenly created for themselves. [...] It is a plague - especially if you add in its various forms of expression, like alcoholism, anorexia, bulimia, drug addiction, compulsive behaviour of one kind or another. Theyre all the same things: attempts to avoid disappearance, or nothingness, or chaos." - Author: Tim Lott

Blossom, trees; ripen, fields; be warm for them, suns; be fertile for them, planets: they are our adopted daughters, and they have come home." - Author: Orson Scott Card
