Otis Y Chandler Quotes

"I agree that its a shame some books have to suffer ratings that clearly are invalid. However I cant think of a way to prevent it, and I didnt see any ideas in the thread either (I did skim though). I hope youll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that weve gone down a censorship road that doesnt take us to a good place."

This may seem like a ponderous weight of wisdom to descend upon the soul of a young woman of twenty-eight - perhaps more wisdom than the Holy Ghost is usually pleased to vouchsafe to any woman." - Author: Kate Chopin

Quotes About Reflections In Mirror

"Why are all reflections lovelier than what we call reality? -- not so grand or so strong, it may be, but always lovelier? Fair as is the gliding sloop on the shining sea, the wavering, trembling, unresting sail below is fairer still...All mirrors are magic mirrors. The commonest room is a room in a poem when I turn to the glass...There must be a truth involved in it, though we may but in part lay hold of the meaning." - Author: George MacDonald

Quotes About Whatsapp Last Seen

"You see, because [Norfolk is] stuck out here on the east, on this hump jutting into the sea, its not on the way to anywhere. People going north and south, they bypass it altogether.

Quotes About Rosario

"Ser Frodo, ser un ciudadano participativo, requerirá hacer una "declaración de fe" como la frase que acuñó Rosario Castellanos. Una filosofía personal basada en la premisa que la acción individual y colectiva sí sirve. Una lista de reglas para ver y andar, vivir y cambiar, exigir y no sólo presenciar. Un conjunto de creencias que son tregua contra el pesimismo, antídoto para la apatía, recordatorio del destino imaginado. Un ideario con el cual combatir el desconsuelo que deja leer los periódicos o ver los noticieros de manera cotidiana." - Author: Denise Dresser

Quotes About Technocracy

"Take now the clockworks... The clockworks, being genuine and not much to look at, dont generate the drama of an Earth-tilt or a flying saucer, nor do they seem to offer any immediate panacea for humanitys fifty-seven varieties of heartburn. But suppose that youre one of those persons who feels trapped, to some degree, trapped matrimonially, occupationally, eductionally or geographically, or trapped in something larger than all those; trapped in a system, or what you might descrbie as an "incresingly deadening technocracy" or a "theater of paranoia and desperation" or something like that. Now, if you are one of those persons... wouldnt the very knowledge that there are clockworks ticking away behind the wallpaper of civilization, unbeknownst to leaders, organizers and managers (the President included), wouldnt that knowledge, suggesting as it does the possibility of unimaginable alternatives, wouldnt that knowledge be a bubble bath for your heart?" - Author: Tom Robbins
