Muhammad Yunus Quotes

"I am not a capitalist in the simplistic left/right sense. But I do believe in the power of the global free-market economy and in using capitalist tools. I believe in the power of teh free market and the power of capital in the marketplace. I also believe that providing unemployment benefits is not the best way to address poverty. The able-bodied poor dont wan tor need charity. The dole only increases their misery, robs them of incentive and, more important, of self-respect."

Beck Sherman Quotes

Kimberly Derting Quotes

"I was just waiting for you to want me as much as I wanted you." His words were quiet but carried one hell of an impact. "I knew we were going to be together; it was just a matter of time. I kept hoping that you would figure it out. But for a smart girl, youre a little dense, Vi. I kept bringing up Lissie Adams, and showing you the notes she was leaving me, hoping that youd get pissed enough to finally admit how you felt about me."

Landsteiner Quotes

"During the time that Landsteiner gave me an education in the field of immunology, I discovered that he and I were thinking about the serologic problem in very different ways. He would ask, What do these experiments force us to believe about the nature of the world? I would ask, What is the most. simple and general picture of the world that we can formulate that is not ruled by these experiments? I realized that medical and biological investigators were not attacking their problems the same way that theoretical physicists do, the way I had been in the habit of doing."

Quotes About Not Hooking Up

"Not so much for Carnival?" I asked Ben playfully, hooking my arm through his."Not so much for driving through Carnival," Ben amended."Too tough for you?""I travel with you. Nothings too tough for me.""Not even that guy?"He turned to look, and the minute his attention was diverted, I raced to the elevators."Hey!" Ben cried, and ran after me, but I dove and pressed the button first."Yes!" I cheered."Loser," Ben said."Actually, I just won. Lets go up and change, then we can hit the Samba Parade.""Change? But I like you just the way you are.""You are such a dork."Ben nodded, accepting the title with grace as the elevator arrived." - Author: Hilary Duff

Quotes About Outright

"Can we really put Ben (hereby representing all men) on such a pedestal? Having tamed those beasts set aside for him, is it not like Ben to seek out that which has historically (regardless of how brief a history) been set aside for women? Woolf criticizes the masculine in her work with the repetition of the phrases uttered by that inconsiderate individual who makes the claim that women cannot paint or write. Is Ben not committing the same crime as that unfortunate character?In stating "[b]etter like this, bitch," Ben employs a word that I would consider to be demasculinizing, rather than feminine. In using the word bitch, he seizes this scholarly investigation and, if you will, pisses on it, claiming it as his own. His statement is an outright challenge. This is a book I stole from women, and I urinated on it. Youd better appreciate my conquest or I will also urinate on you." - Author: Caris OMalley

Quotes About Company Culture

"One of Romanas particularly important discoveries during this period had been the extent of the Doctors fascination for a planet in the Mutters Spiral galaxy — Sol 3, known to its inhabitants as Earth. [...] The Doctor had spent so much time there, and so much time in the company of its people, that it was hard to interact with him on any meaningful level without at very least a working knowledge of the planets history, social structure and idioms.And so one afternoon she plucked a computer tablet from the TARDIS library and read up on it all, history and culture, from the birth of the planet from drifting clouds of cosmic dust, through the Stone Age, the Trojan War, Homer, Shakespeare, the Freat Break-Out into Space, right up to its eventual immolation in the 57th segment of time. (Been there, seen it, done it, wrote most of that, caused that, the Doctor kept saying over her shoulder, irritatingly.)" - Author: Gareth Roberts

Quotes About Oblivious Love

"Bedding her could be anything from tenderness to riot, but to take her when she was a bit the worse for drink was always a particular delight.Intoxicated, she took less care for him than usual; abandoned and oblivious to all but her own pleasure, she would rake him, bite him - and beg him to serve her so, as well. He loved the feeling of power in it, the tantalizing choice between joining her at once in animal lust, or of holding himself-for a time- in check, so as to drive her at his whim." - Author: Diana Gabaldon
