Samuel Crompton Quotes

"A man has a very insecure tenure of a property which another can carry away with his eyes. A few months reduced me to the cruel necessity either of destroying my machine, or of giving it to the public. To destroy it, I could not think of; to give up that for which I had laboured so long, was cruel. I had no patent, nor the means of purchasing one. In preference to destroying, I gave it to the public.[On his inability to keep for himself a profitable income from his invention of the Spinning Mule.]"

Chris Lester Quotes

"Misty bit her lip — or at least that was what it looked like with the glamour. Kate could only imagine what she was doing with that mouth full of fangs. How do I know I can trust him? Or you?Kate rose to her feet. You dont. You never do, with people. Some things, you have to take on faith. She turned and headed for the door, then paused and looked back. I dont know how much you know about humans. Im just guessing here, but we probably seem like a bunch of violent, paranoid, back-stabbing monkeys. ‘Cause we are. But the thing is … sooner or later, we all find ways to trust each other, even though we might get burned doing it.Mistys lip curled into a sneer. Because deep down inside, humans are all noble creatures that want to rise above their natures, right?Oh, hell no, Kate said. Its just better than facing the darkness alone.Then she turned and walked out, leaving the dumbstruck Misty behind her."

Quotes About Celebrate New Year

"But take heart: For every phalanx of nerds who die there are always a few who succeed. Not long after that horrific murder, a whole pack of revolutionary nerds ran aground on a sandbar on the southeast coast of Cuba. Yes, it was Fidel and Revolutionary Crew, back for a rematch against Batista. Of the eight-two revolutionaries who splashed ashore, only twenty-two survived to celebrate the New Year, including one book-loving argentino.

Quotes About Defects

"There was a proud Teapot, proud of being made of porcelain, proud of its long spout and its broad handle. It had something in front of it and behind it; the spout was in front, and the handle behind, and that was what it talked about. But it didnt mention its lid, for it was cracked and it was riveted and full of defects, and we dont talk about our defects - other people do that. The cups, the cream pitcher, the sugar bowl - in fact, the whole tea service - thought much more about the defects in the lid and talked more about it than about the sound handle and the distinguished spout. The Teapot knew this." - Author: Hans Christian Andersen
