Quotes About Something Being Yours

"We who are here to-night are here as the servants of the guests of a great University, a University of knowledge, scholarship, and intellect. You do well to be proud of it. But I have wondered whether there may not be colleges and faculties of other experiences than yours, and whether even now in the far corners of the continents powers not yours are being brought to fruition. I have myself been something of a traveller, and every time I return to England I wonder whether the games of those children do not hold more intense life than the talk of your learned men-- a more intense passion for discovery, a greater power of exploration, new raptures, unknown paths of glorious knowledge; whether you may not yet sit at the feet of the natives of the Amazon or the Zambesi: whether the fakirs and the herdsmen, the witch-doctors may not enter the kingdom of man before you" - Author: Charles Williams

Quotes About Media Stereotypes

"Here is your law enforcement and media question of the day: Was the TV show COPS real or BS?It might have been real incidents, but it wasnt really all that real. They edited the episodes to make it appear as if black people were committing fewer crimes. That is what the show creator John Langley said in a 2009 interview in response to people who were unhappy his long-running reality show, COPS, was showing too many black people getting arrested. What irritates me sometimes is critics still watch and say, Oh look, they misrepresent people of color. Thats absolutely not true. To the contrary, I show more white people than statistically what the truth is in terms of street crime..Its just the reverse. And I do that intentionally, because I do not want to contribute to negative stereotypes, said Langley, the shows producer, in 2009." - Author: Colin Flaherty

Quotes About Rocky Times

"He sits aloof from the rest of the family, an inaccessible island with a rocky shoreline. You cannot make landfall on your own. You must first take my mother on board as the pilot to guide you through the treacherous channel. And her MO depends on the nature of the mission. Sometimes when we had infuriated him, she was like one of those little grooming fish swimming right up to the great white shark in an apparently suicidal approach an nibbling at the menacing snout. And we would hold our breath, waiting for her to be gobbled up in a flash of fish fangs, but the great white wld exhibit some instinctive override, some primal understanding of emotional symbiosis, and would tolerate her proximity. And so the pattern had been established over decades." - Author: Peter Godwin

Quotes About Nobody Knowing Me

"I wish I could go back and rewrite my first book, You Bright and Risen Angels; I could do a better job. But in the meantime, nobody knows as much about my books as I do. Nobody has the right but me to say which words go into my books or get deleted or edited. When Im dying, Ill smile, knowing I stood up for my books. If I die with more money, that wouldnt bring a smile to my face. Unless I got better drugs or more delicious-looking nurses." - Author: William T. Vollmann
