Frantiek Koukolik Quotes

"Počet synapsí v mozku je příliš vysoký na to, aby všechny mohly být určeny geneticky. Nové synapse vznikají (ale i zanikají) denně, v obrovském počtu, vlivem prostředí."

Kathleen Norris Quotes

"Laundry, liturgy and womens work all serve to ground us in the world, and they need not grind us down. Our daily tasks, whether we perceive them as drudgery or essential, life-supporting work, do not define who we are as women or as human beings."

PC Hodgell Quotes

"A face stared up at her from the mirror beside her hand. Was that really what she looked like? Was that really what she looked like, all sharp lines and huge silver-grey eyes? Certainly, no one would ever call those features beautiful, Jame thought ruefully; but were they really enough like a boys to have fooled that old man the alley? Well, maybe with that long black hair out of sight under a cap. It was a very young face and a defiant one, she thought with a odd sense of detachment, but frightened, too. And those extraordinary eyes... what memories lived in them that she could not share? Stranger, where have you been she asked silently. What have you seen? The thin lips locked in their secrets."Ahhh!" Jame said in sudden disgust, tossing away the mirror. Fool, to be obsessed with a past she couldnt even remember. But it was all behind her now."

Quotes About Surviving A Hard Life

"Didnt matter how much love you gave them. How good you treated them. How you gave them everything you wish to the gods youd had, including respect. It didnt matter how much you hated the life youd been forced against your will to live or how hard youd try to put the past behind you. They cursed you for surviving and judged you on a past you despised even more than they did. He and Nykyrian were the ones whod lived in hell, and these assholes who had no understanding of the world dared to look down on them for it." - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

Quotes About Sams

"Antisemitismus ist vom Anfang bis zum Ende das wirksamste Propagandamittel der Partei, ist die wirksamste und populärste Konkretisierung der Rassendoktrin, ja ist für die deutsche Masse mit der Rassenlehre identisch. Denn was weiß die deutsche Masse von den Gefahren der "Verniggerung", und wie weit reicht ihre persönliche Kenntnis von der behaupteten Minderwertigkeit der Ost- und Südostvölker? Aber einen Juden kennt jeder. Antisemitismus und Rassendoktrin sind für die deutsche Masse Synonyma." - Author: Victor Klemperer

Quotes About Weight Off Your Shoulders

"When slow songs do play, people joke that you should be able to fit "the standard works" between you and your partner. The standard works is a Mormon term referring to all of the religious books we study. So when youre slow dancing, the Old Testament, New Testament, The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price should be able to fit in the space between you and your dance partner -- or youre dancing too close." - Author: Elna Baker

Quotes About Pushing Yourself In Sports

"Teachers, parents, guidance counselors... all of them are always pushing this crap about how its okay to be different, just be yourself. Dont give in to peer pressure, blah, blah, blah. The truth is, its really only okay to be yourself if that self is within an accepted range of "normal." You like soccer instead of basketball, Johnny? Well, okay, I guess, so long as you still like sports. Whats that, Susie, you want to wear the blue sweater instead of the red? You know were all about expressing individuality here... so long as its still a sweater." - Author: Stacey Kade

Quotes About Bootleggers

"Good art can come out of thieves, bootleggers, or horse swipes. People really are afraid to find out just how much hardship and poverty they can stand. They are afraid to find out how tough they are. Nothing can destroy the good writer. The only thing that can alter the good writer is death. Good ones dont have time to bother with success or getting rich. Success is feminine and like a woman; if you cringe before her, she will override you. So the way to treat her is to show her the back of your hand. Then maybe she will do the crawling." - Author: William Faulkner
