"Every pound of muscle burns approximately 50 calories every day, just doing nothing."

Ernst Cassirer Quotes

"There is no remedy against this reversal of the natural order. Man cannot escape from his own achievement. He cannot but adopt the conditions of his own life. No longer in a merely physical universe, man lives in a symbolic universe. Language, myth, art, and religion are parts of this universe. They are the varied threads which weave the symbolic net, the tangled web of human experience. All human progress in thought and experience refines and strengthens this net. No longer can man confront reality immediately; he cannot see it, as it were, face to face. Physical reality seems to recede in proportion as mans symbolic activity advances. Instead of dealing with the things themselves man is in a sense constantly conversing with himself...."

Me and my boy toy are trying that one out tonight."

Gauss Quotes

"The best that Gauss has given us was likewise an exclusive production. If he had not created his geometry of surfaces, which served Riemann as a basis, it is scarcely conceivable that anyone else would have discovered it. I do not hesitate to confess that to a certain extent a similar pleasure may be found by absorbing ourselves in questions of pure geometry."

Staceyann Chin Quotes

Wanda Lea Brayton Quotes

"My earliest poems appear almost skeletal to me now - it seems Ive learned to add meat, muscle and a nice suit of clothes."

Lynn Hershman Leeson Quotes

"Invisibility--there are things we cant see now, that are there, that are embedded, that it really takes time in order to be able to see. There are many ghosts that are lurking around and lingering through us that takes the technology of another generation or so in order to uncover and show what those stains and strains and perceived flaws really were building towards"

Quotes About Offender

"Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past.

You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go." - Author: Rick Warren

Quotes About Aegean

"During the persecutions under the Emperor Domitian, John was summoned to Rome, where he was tortured by immersion in a pot of boiling oil and subsequently banished to the island of Patmos in the Aegean sea. It was there he wrote his Apocalypse. It was only after the death of Domitian, in A.D. 96, that he returned to Ephesus, where he was still living during the reign of the Emperor Trajan (A.D. 98-117). He became so old and frail that he could no longer walk and had to be carried to meetings and services. All he could manage to say was, "My little children, love one another." He repeated this over and over." - Author: Gilles Quispel
