[Outside, With Labor Day Having Come And Gone, Summer Is Fighting A Dying Battle Against The Fall Air. The Leaves Are Hanging Perilously On The Trees, Knowing Full Well They're Going To Make The Plunge, Clinging On As If They Stand A Chance Not To. The Garbage Smell That Has Wafted Around Us For The Better Part Of August Is Dissipating, Ushered Out With The Humidity, And In Its Place A Briskness Is Filtering In, Like Something You'd Smell From A Bottle Of Tide.]

Quotes About Assuming Too Much

"If you should rise from Nowhere up to Somewhere, From being No one up to being Someone, Be sure to keep repeating to yourself You owe it to an arbitrary god Whose mercy to you rather than to others Wont bear to critical examination.

Quotes About Hunched

"I have been seeing dragons again.Last night, hunched on a beaver dam,one held a body like a badly held cocktail;his tail, keeping the beat of a waltz,sent a morse of ripples to my canoe.They are not richly brightbut muted like dawnsor the vague sheen on a flys wing.Their old flesh drags in foldsas they drop into grey pools,strain behind a tree.Finally the others saw one today, trapped,tangled in our badminton net.The minute eyes shuddered deep in the creased facewhile his throat, strangely fierce, stretchedto release an extinct burning inside:pathetic loud whispers as four of usand the excited spaniel surrounded him." - Author: Michael Ondaatje

Quotes About Miserable People

"And so a miserable but possible scenario is that countries in the bottom billion oscillate between the traps and limbo, perhaps switching in the process from one trap to another..Let me be clear: we cannot rescue them. The societies of the bottom billion can only be rescued from within. In every society of the bottom billion there are people working for change, but usually they are defeated by the powerful internal forces stacked against them. We should be helping the heroes. So far, our efforts have been paltry: through inertia, ignorance, and incompetence, we have stood by and watched them lose.Let me be clear: we cannot rescue them. These societies of the bottom billion can only be rescued from within." - Author: Paul Collier

Quotes About Kissing Her Lips

"As to my mouth, of all my features, I wish I could possess my mouth again, just as it had been before the fire. I had my mothers lips, generous below and above; and what kissing I had practiced, mainly on my hand or on a lonely pig, had convinced me that my lips would be the source of my good fortune. I would kiss with them, and lie with them, I would make victims and willing slaves of anyone my eyes desired, simply by talking a little, and following the talk with kisses, and the kisses with demands. And theyd melt into compliance, everyone of them, happy to perform the most demeaning acts as long as I was there to reward them with a long, tongue-tied kiss when they were done. But the fire didnt spare my lips; it took them too, erasing them utterly." - Author: Clive Barker

Quotes About Theory Of Development

"I recently asked more than seventy eminent researchers if they would have done I their work differently if they had thought Darwins theory was wrong. The responses were all the same: no. I also examined the outstanding biodiscoveries of the past century: the discovery of the double helix; the characterization of the ribosome: the mapping of genomes; research on medications and drug reactions: improvements in food production and sanitation; the development of new surgeries; and others. I even queried biologists working in areas where one would expect the Darwinian paradigm to have most benefited research, such as the emergence of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides. Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwins theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss." - Author: Philip S. Skell
