Helen Oyeyemi Quotes

"Pops says he loves me just the way I am, but not everyone in the world is like my father. Maman, for example. A difficult and dissatisfied woman. She made me learn flower arranging and how to walk properly -- books on my head, the whole bit. These things ruined me for life. Now it sets my teeth on edge when I see flowers carelessly flung into a vase, and Im forever looking at other women in the street and thinking, [I]Sloppy...sloppy[/I]. And I know I shouldnt care, and I want to poke myself in the eye for caring, but I care anyway, so thanks for that, Maman."

Mary Timony Quotes

"Im much more of a musician than a poet. I just feel much more confident about my musical abilities."

Planck Quotes

"In the temple of science are many mansions, and various indeed are they that dwell therein and the motives that have led them thither. Many take to science out of a joyful sense of superior intellectual power; science is their own special sport to which they look for vivid experience and the satisfaction of ambition; many others are to be found in the temple who have offered the products of their brains on this altar for purely utilitarian purposes. Were [someone to] drive all the people belonging to these two categories out of the temple, the assemblage would be seriously depleted, but there would still be some men, of both present and past times, left inside. Our Planck is one of them, and that is why we love him."

Ryan Field Quotes

"Just when I think youve hit bottom you continue to amaze me," Kyle said. "Or, does this get worse? Nothing would surprise me after this. Are you sleeping with a married man whose wife is dying of cancer?"Elroy didnt think hed done anything wrong. "I know nothing about his wife, or his husband for that matter. I dont ask and Im not out to break up his home. Lighten up, man. Everybody does it. Its not like Im going to freaking marry this dude. Im only having a little fun with him. You wanna come with me? Well have a three-way. You should see the way this guy moves. It will blow your mind."With that remark Kyle shoved his hands into his pockets and walked faster. "No, thank you. Thats not something Im interested in doing. Meeting nice, decent people is the only thing that blows my mind. I just hope youre using condoms, you goddman asshole."

Quotes About Laughing At Life

"I remember the woman who marched up to the front of a church where I was doing a meeting, put her hands on her hips, and she said, "I want my money back." I said, "What are you talking about?" She said, "Ive been doing this two weeks, and it doesnt work. I want my money back!" It was actually all that I could keep from doing to keep from laughing in her face, but she was serious. She actually was, like, giving almost to buy some kind of a new lifestyle that she wanted. Didnt understand a thing about commitment and dedication and discipline. Two weeks!

Quotes About Flight 93

"As to rocket ships flying between America and Europe, I believe it is worth seriously trying for. Thirty years ago persons who were developing flying were laughed at as mad, and that scorn hindered aviation. Now we heap similar ridicule upon stratoplane or rocket ships for trans-Atlantic flights.

Quotes About Loneliness And Isolation

"All of us, whether vivisector or vegan, have been subject to mechanisms undercutting sympathy for animals. How long and to what extent we submit to these mechanisms is not a matter of rationality: to cut off our feelings and support animal exploitation is rational, given societal expectations and sanctions; but to assert our feelings and oppose animal exploitation is also rational, given the pain involved in losing our natural bonds with animals. So our task is not to pass judgment on others rationality, but to speak honestly of the loneliness and isolation of anthropocentric society, and of the damage done to every person expected to hurt animals." - Author: Brian Luke

Quotes About Mentors In Life

"Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them. Even Muggles feel their presence, though they cant see them. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself — soul-less and evil. Youll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life." - Author: J.K. Rowling

Quotes About Utter

"The choice between Jamess vision of a Jewish religion anchored in the Law of Moses and derived from a Jewish nationalist who fought against Rome, and Pauls vision of a Roman religion that divorced itself from Jewish provincialism and required nothing for salvation save belief in Christ, was not a difficult one for the second and third generations of Jesuss followers to make.Two thousand years later, the Christ of Pauls creation has utterly subsumed the Jesus of history. The memory of the revolutionary zealot who walked across Galilee gathering an army of disciples with the goal of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth, the magnetic preacher who defied the authority of the Temple priesthood in Jerusalem, the radical Jewish nationalist who challenged the Roman occupation and lost, has been almost completely lost to history." - Author: Reza Aslan
