George Gordon Lord Byron Quotes

"Time and Nemesis will do that which I would not, were it in my power remote or immediate. You will smile at this piece of prophecy - do so, but recollect it: it is justified by all human experience. No one was ever even the involuntary cause of great evils to others, without a requital: I have paid and am paying for mine - so will you."

Christopher Peter Grey Quotes

"The Duke would not pay for the works. He says that the Castle can never be taken. That is called hubris, Giacomo, the belief that you are never wrong. Believing you are never wrong is an error that afflicts great men. I have learned that to be right you must first be wrong many times. Without making errors--and learning from them--a man cannot find the truth."

Marian Bendeth Quotes

"Conflicts like competitive races are zero sum games, meaning that there is one winner and one loser. This also means that the winner will win at theexpense of the loser.

Quotes About Robots

"Robots are important also. If I don my pure-scientist hat, I would say just send robots; Ill stay down here and get the data. But nobodys ever given a parade for a robot. Nobodys ever named a high school after a robot. So when I don my public-educator hat, I have to recognize the elements of exploration that excite people. Its not only the discoveries and the beautiful photos that come down from the heavens; its the vicarious participation in discovery itself." - Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quotes About Nihilistic

"My view of writing "Coldest Girl in Coldtown" was to take every single thing that I loved from every vampire book I had ever read and dump it into one book--everything I like--trying to evoke some of the decadence… Vampires are a high-class monster: They want to dress up. They want to drink a lot of absinthe, or force their victims to drink a lot of absinthe. They have big parties and have elegant rituals. I think thats a thing we associate with vampires--they are the royalty of our monsters. We expect them to be rich, we expect them to be well-dressed. I wanted to have some of that be true because I like it, and have some of it not be true because its kind of weird.I wanted to put in the idea of infection, which I was really interested in and which was a big feature of the vampire books I read growing up. And, the fear and desire for infection--the way in which our urge towards loving vampires is nihilistic. Our fear of them is our survival instincts kicking in." - Author: Holly Black

Quotes About Nacion

"Sí, de repente lo ví así: la mayoría de la gente se engaña mediante una doble creencia errónea: cree en el eterno recuerdo (de la gente, de las cosas, de los actos, de las naciones) y en la posibilidad de reparación (de los actos, de los errores, de los pecados, de las injusticias.Ambas creencias son falsas. La realidad es precisamente al contrario: todo será olvidado y nada será reparado. El papel de la reparación (de la venganza y el perdón) lo lleva a cabo el olvido. Nadie reparará las injusticias que se cometieron, pero todas las injusticias serán olvidadas"." - Author: Milan Kundera
