[She Should Have Done Science, Not Spent All Her Time With Her Head In Novels. Novels Gave You A Completely False Idea About Life, They Told Lies And They Implied There Were Endings When In Reality There Were No Endings, Everything Just Went On And On And On.]

Jancee Dunn Quotes

"It hit me that being hip was a full-time job, and I was only a part-timer. I couldnt hide forever that I liked county fairs, particularly the goat booth at the 4-H tent, or that I once spent a week with my grandmother at her house in the giant retirement community of Sun City, Arizona, and it was one of the most carefree times of my life."

Stacey Marie Brown Quotes

"Youre fucking kidding me, right?" "I dont kid about fucking."

Farid Al Din Attar Quotes

"The home we seek is in eternity;The Truth we seek is like a shoreless sea,Of which your paradise is but a drop.This ocean can be yours; why should you stopBeguiled by dreams of evanescent dew?The secrets of the sun are yours, but youContent yourself with motes trapped in its beams.Turn to what truly lives, reject what seems --Which matters more, the body or the soul?Be whole: desire and journey to the Whole."

Matthew Loop Quotes

Brian Greene Quotes

"Since the familiar particles and the objects they compose—stars, planets, people, etc.—amount to less than 5 percent of the mass of the universe, such a disruption would not affect the vast majority of the universe, at least as measured by mass."

James Webb Quotes

"In such a wild, uncharted place the book of God was vital, for it nourished their spirit and laid boundaries for their conduct. Other subjects simply had no relevance. Trigonometry and calculus would not help them find their way among the mountain trails. Adam Smiths economics were of no consequence in the matter of planting corn and breeding cattle. Nor did they need the essays of Plato or the plays of Shakespeare to teach them how to shoot a rifle, or to make clothes from animal skins, or to clear away the wilderness with their own bare hands."

Robert Wilson Quotes

"I usually stay in on Sunday nights. Im not much of a party person."

Quotes About Levitt

"Still, one could argue—and many did—that Greenspan, at least, had no business being quite so shocked. Over the years, countless people had challenged his deregulatory dogma, including (to name just a few) Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, both Nobel Prize–winning economists, and Brooksley Born, who was head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1996 to 1999. Born eventually became something of a Cassandra figure for the crisis, since she repeatedly called for regulating the market for derivatives, those ultracomplex financial products that eventually helped bring down the economy. Those calls were silenced when Greenspan, along with then-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and then-Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Arthur Levitt, took the extraordinary step of convincing Congress to pass legislation forbidding Borns agency from taking any action for the duration of her term." - Author: Kathryn Schulz

Quotes About Vincere

"Offri al popolo gare che si possono vincere ricordando le parole di canzoni molto popolari, o il nome delle capitali dei vari Stati dellUnione o la quantità di grano che lo Iowa ha prodotto lanno passato. Riempi loro i crani di dati non combustibili, imbottiscili di "fatti" al punto che non si possano più muovere tanto son pieni, ma sicuri dessere "veramente bene informati". Dopo di che avranno la certezza di pensare, la sensazione del movimento, quando in realtà sono fermi come un macigno. E saranno felici, perché fatti di questo genere sono sempre gli stessi." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Green Color

"My sisters and I stand, arms around each other, laughind and wiping the tears from each others eyes. The flash of the Polaroid goes off and my family hands me the snapshot. My sisters and I watch quietly together, eager to see what develops. Ghe grey-greensurface changes to the bright colors of our three images, sharpening and deepening all at once. And although we dont speak, I know we all see it: Together we look like our mother. Her same eyes, her same mouth, open in suprise to see, her long-cherished wish." - Author: Amy Tan
