Shannon Hale Quotes

"I keep thinking about a tale my nurse used to read to me about a bird whose wings are pinned to the ground. In the end, when he finally frees himself, he flies so high he becomes a star. My nurse said the story was about how we all have something that keeps us down."

Frank Robinson Quotes

"Its nice to come into a town and be referred to as the manager of the Cleveland Indians instead of as the first black manager."

Ryan C Thomas Quotes

"Hope is a cruel bitch."

Jim Tully Quotes

"Plundering and stealing, cheating and lying, laboring, fighting and loving; taking all we could and returning little, we went our careless and irresponsible ways, with laughter in our hearts and sneers on our lips - as anti-social as hyenas who howled at the changes in the weather."

James Enns Quotes

"Id rather laugh in a tent than cry in a palace."

Michael Munro Quotes

"In that light, philosophy is not so much--or not simply--the love of wisdom, but instead marks the passage from wonder as a noun to wonder as a verb. Philosophy is the love of wisdom to the extent that it remains an incitement to it."

Wendy McClure Quotes

"Sometimes, Laura World wasnt a realm of log cabins or prairies, it was a way of being. Really, a way of being happy. I wasnt into the flowery sayings, but I was nonetheless in love with the idea of serene rooms full of endless quiet and time, of sky in the windows, of a life comfortably cluttered and yet in some kind of perfect feng shui equilibrium, where all the days were capacious enough to bake bread and write novels and perambulate the wooded hills deep in thought (though truthfully, Id allow for the occasional Rose-style cocktail party as well)."

Nicholas A Christakis Quotes

"The reason we form networks is because the benefits of a connected life outweigh the costs. Its to our advantage as individuals and a species to assemble ourselves in this fashion."

Quotes About Ayah

"Aku hanya mencemaskan kesehatan Anda. Anda tak berhak menilaiku berdasarkan tindakan yang kuperbuat jika itu semua kulakukan demi Anda. Anda tak tahu kan, berapa banyak peraturan tak tertulis di sini yang sudah aku langgar untuk melindungi Anda? Jadi, dengarkan ini baik-baik, aku sudah bunuh dokter itu karena dia mengenali Anda, titik. Tidak usah dipertanyakan lagi. Dan karena aku sudah susah payah mendatangkan dokter itu demi Anda, sekaligus membunuhnya juga demi Anda, jadi Anda tak berhak menolak makanan, minuman, dan obat yang sudah aku persiapkan demi Anda." - Author: Ida R. Yulia

Quotes About And Life

"We ourselves have so long ceased to use it [the Christian worldview] except for the discussion of the moral, the liturgical, or the spiritual, that it is rusty and out of date. We have no Christian vocabulary to match the complexities of contemporary political, social, and industrial life. We have long ceased to bring Christian judgement to bear upon the secular public world." - Author: Harry Blamires

Quotes About Determinism

"A stubborn refusal of the conditions of 20th Century reality, surrealism has denied intransigently and consistently that modern man can live without a sense of wonder at the world that was once embodied in myth. In approaching literature, it has aimed at restoring to the word its magical qualities. And at giving back to language the elemental power it once had within society. This determinism lies at the heart of the surrealist attitude and distinguishes it radically from the modernism which took shape contemporaneously with it." - Author: Michael Richardson

Quotes About Being Tested In Life

"Even if these researchers do see the need to address the problem immediately, though they have obligations and legitimate interests elsewhere, including being funded for other research. With luck, the ideas discussed in Good Calories, Bad Calories may be rigorously tested in the next twenty years. If confirmed, it will be another decade or so after that, at least, before our public health authorities actively change their official explanation for why we get fat, how that leads to illness, and what we have to do to avoid or reverse those fates. As I was told by a professor of nutrition at New York University after on of my lectures, the kind of change Im advocating could take a lifetime to be accepted." - Author: Gary Taubes

Quotes About York Minster

"Perhaps I shall not write my account of the Paleolithic at all, but make a film of it. A silent film at that, in which I shall show you first the great slumbering rocks of the Cambrian period, and move from those to the mountains of Wales...from Ordovician to Devonian, on the lush glowing Cotswolds, on to the white cliffs of Dover... An impressionistic, dreaming film, in which the folded rocks arise and flower and grow and become Salisbury Cathedral and York Minster..." - Author: Penelope Lively

Quotes About Building Castles In The Sky

"She had been with her share of schemers and men who were forever building castles in the sky. All of those dreams made out of clouds; when it rained - and it always did - they were left with nothing but the soggy shirts on their backs." - Author: Ayana Mathis

Quotes About Transhumanism

"I believe in transhumanism: once there are enough people who can truly say that, the human species will be on the threshold of a new kind of existence, as different from ours as ours is from that of Peking man. It will at last be consciously fulfilling its real destiny." - Author: Julian Huxley

Quotes About Funny Homeland Security

"Eagleton has spent his life inside two mental boxes, Catholicism and Marxism, of both of which he is a severe internal critic—that is, he frequently kicks and scratches at the inside of the boxes, but does not leave them. Neither are ideologies that loosen their grip easily, and people who need the security of adherence to a big dominating ideology, however much they kick and scratch but without daring to leave go, hold on to it every bit as tightly as it holds onto them. The result is of course strangulation, but alas not mutual strangulation: the ideology always wins." - Author: A.C. Grayling

Quotes About Sister Friends

"I, who have no sisters or brothers, look with some degree of innocent envy on those who may be said to be born to friends." - Author: James Boswell
