Leroy Paige Quotes

"Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.Go very lightly on vices such as carrying on in society. The social ramble aint restful.Avoid running at all times.Dont look back. Something may be gaining on you."

Quotes About Homeschooling

"This book is not about "homeschooling" at all. School is an artificial institution contrived by man. This book is about educating a child in the heart of the family given to that child by his Creator." - Author: Elizabeth Foss

Quotes About Food And Beverages

"I can think of no sadder example of our food paradigm than two posters taped to the window of a California IHOP. One is a colorful photo of pancakes heaped with bananas, strawberries, nuts, syrups and whipped cream with the caption, Welcome to Paradise. Lower down, an 8x10 photocopy states: Chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm may be present in food or beverages sold here. Such signs are posted on many fast-food outlets. Heaven isnt a place on earth, at least not at these drive-throughs." - Author: Adam Leith Gollner

Quotes About Niece Love

"I tell my seven-year-old son about his remarkable forefathers. I leave out the bloody details. (For him these people are like knights, which sounds better than hangmen or executioners.) In his bedroom hangs a collage made up of photos of long-dead family members--great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, their aunts, their uncles, their nephews and nieces..Sometimes at night he wants to hear stories about these people, and I tell him what I know about them. Happy stories, sad stories, frightening stories. For him the family is a safe refuge, a link binding him to many people whom he loves and who love him. I once heard that everyone on this earth is at least distantly related to everyone else. Somehow this is a comforting idea." - Author: Oliver Pötzsch

Quotes About Rancor

"Mas a explicação solitária já requer uma outra altitude - utilizemos esta palavra - da inteligência. Qualquer instinto criativo começa com esta necessidade antiga que a memória colectiva faz por esquecer: somos criativos porque queremos encontrar uma explicação solitária, uma explicação individual, uma explicação que não tenha par, que não tenha duplo, que não seja possível acompanhar, uma explicação egoísta, dirão alguns, sim, egoísta, claro. Mais que isso: rancorosa. Uma explicação que odeia as outras, que as combate, mas combate não para vencer somente as outras explicações, mas para vencer, derrotar, eliminar os próprios homens portadores de outras explicações solitárias. A explicação solitária, a ciência individual por excelência, no limite, quer eliminar todas as outras existências, porque as odeia; e odeia-as simplesmente porque outra inteligência e outra possibilidade de solidão são a prova de que sozinhos não ocupamos o mundo." - Author: Gonçalo M. Tavares

Quotes About Dora

"Now, its undeniably true that male writers (including yours truly) are generally and commercially allowed to write about "girl stuff" without being penalized for doing so. In part this is the same old shit its always been ... Ive said before that men who write mostly about men win prizes for revealing the human condition, while women who write about both men and women are filed away as writing "womens issues." Likewise, in fantasy, the imprimatur of a dude somehow makes stuff like romance, relationship drama, introspection, and adorable animal companions magically not girly after all.In a sense, we male fantasists are allowed to be like money launderers for girl cooties."[Game of Thrones and Invisible Cootie Vectors (blog post, March 30, 2014)]" - Author: Scott Lynch
