Ian Tattersall Quotes

"For over a century, an evolving microcosm of Anthropologys turbulent history has hidden behind the staid façade of the American Museum of Natural History. From an insiders perspective, the well-known ethnologist Stan Freed engagingly introduces us to an amazing cast of explorers, eccentrics, idealists, pranksters and forbidding intellectual - an unlikely mix that played a key role in establishing the science of Anthropology as we know it today."

Stuart Appleby Quotes

"I didnt really get into golf until I was about 14. My mom and dad were taking lessons from a pro an hour and a half from our farm in Cohuna, Australia. When they got home, Id ask my mom to explain everything they learned - drills and all."

Lou Doillon Quotes

"Blanche opened a new door for me without really making me more famous. Blanche was a risk, but that is the only thing that excites me in this profession. The knowledge that I am an actress who takes risks lifts my soul."

Dagny Scott Barrios Quotes

"Every run is a work of art, a drawing on each days canvas. Some runs are shouts and some runs are whispers. Some runs are eulogies and others celebrations. When youre angry, a run can be a sharp slap in the face. When happy, a run is your song. And when your running progresses enough to become the chrysalis through which your life is viewed, motivation is almost beside the point. Rather, its running that motivates you for everything else the day holds."

Deborah Bull Quotes

"I think its useful to experience other types of dance and other cultures, and the life of a classical dancer these days is certainly not all tutus! So experience of other dance forms is a good idea."

Philip Kitcher Quotes

"Thomas Kuhns book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions has probably been more widely read—and more widely misinterpreted—than any other book in the recent philosophy of science. The broad circulation of his views has generated a popular caricature of Kuhns position. According to this popular caricature, scientists working in a field belong to a club. All club members are required to agree on main points of doctrine. Indeed, the price of admission is several years of graduate education, during which the chief dogmas are inculcated. The views of outsiders are ignored. Now I want to emphasize that this is a hopeless caricature, both of the practice of scientists and of Kuhns analysis of the practice. Nevertheless, the caricature has become commonly accepted as a faithful representation, thereby lending support to the Creationists claims that their views are arrogantly disregarded."

Quotes About Virute

"If he had but a little more brains, she thought to herself, I might make something of him; but she never let him perceive the opinion she had of him; listened with indefatigable complacency to his stories of the stable and the mess; laughed at all his jokes...When he came home, she was alert and happy; when he went out she pressed him to go; when he stayed at home, she played and sang for him, made him good drinks, superintended his dinner, warmed his slippers, and steeped his soul in comfort. The best of women {I have heard my grandmother say) are hypocrites. We dont know how much they hide from us: how watchful they are when they seem most artless and confidential: how often those frank smile which they wear so easily are traps to cajole or elude or disarm--I dont mean in your mere coquettes, but your domestic models and paragons of female virute." - Author: William Makepeace Thackeray

Quotes About Internet Funny

"Thanks is part to our education system, we tend to think that were smarter than the stupid guys in funny wigs who came before us. But thats because we are mistaking technology, progress, and access to information for intelligence. We think that because we know how to use iPhones (but not build them), browse the Internet (but not understand how it works), and use Google (but not really know anything), our educational system is working just great. By the same token, we think that those dumb aristocrats who used horses to get around and didnt have electricity were neanderthals." - Author: Glenn Beck
