Michael O Tunnell Quotes

"Suddenly, out of the mist came a parachute with a fresh Hershey chocolate bar from America. It took me a week to eat that candy bar. I hid it day and night. The chocolate was wonderful, but it wasnt the chocolate that was most important. What it meant was that someone in America cared. That parachute was something more important than candy. It represented hope. Hope that someday we would be free. Without hope the soul dies."

Richard Prestons Quotes

"I placed some of the DNA on the ends of my fingers and rubbed them together. The stuff was sticky. It began to dissolve on my skin. Its melting -- like cotton candy. Sure. Thats the sugar in the DNA, Smith said. Would it taste sweet? No. DNA is an acid, and its got salts in it. Actually, Ive never tasted it. Later, I got some dried calf DNA. I placed a bit of the fluff on my tongue. It melted into a gluey ooze that stuck to the roof of my mouth in a blob. The blob felt slippery on my tongue, and the taste of pure DNA appeared. It had a soft taste, unsweet, rather bland, with a touch of acid and a hint of salt. Perhaps like the earths primordial sea. It faded away.Page 67, in Richard Prestons biographical essay on Craig Venter, "The Genome Warrior" (originally published in The New Yorker in 2000)."

Quotes About Oturu

"Ah siz akıllı insanlar! Tutku! Sarhoşluk! Delilik! Empati kurmadan, orada öyle rahat rahat oturun, alkoliği eleştirin, aklını kaçırmıştan nefret edin, bir rahip gibi yanından geçip gidin ve sizi onlardan biri yapmadığı için Ferisi gibi Tanrıya şükredin. Ben birçok kez sarhoş oldum, tutkularım delilikten hiç uzak değildi, her ikisinden de pişman değilim: Zira olanaksız görünen önemli şeyler yapan ve eskiden beri alkolik ve deli diye damgalanan tüm sıra dışı insanları kendi ölçülerimle anlamayı öğrendim. Ama az çok özgür, soylu, beklenmedik bir iş yapan hemen hemen herkesin arkasından şöyle söylendiğini duymak, sıradan yaşamda bile katlanılmazdır: Bu insan alkolik, bu insan deli! Utanın siz ayıklar! Utanın siz akıllılar!" - Author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Quotes About Little Baby Hands

"The old clock on the kitchen wall still clicked its minutes with fussy punctuality. A life had come and gone and nature had not paused a second for it. The machine of time and space grinds on, and people are fed through it like grist through the mill. Isabel had managed to sit up a little against the wall, and she sobbed at the sight of the diminutive form, which she had dared to imagine as bigger, as stronger – as a child of this world. ‘My baby my baby my baby my baby, she whispered like a magic incantation that might resuscitate him. The face of the creature was solemn, a monk in deep prayer, eyes closed, mouth sealed shut: already back in that world from which he had apparently been reluctant to stray. Still the officious hands of the clock tutted their way around. Half an hour had passed and Isabel had said nothing." - Author: M.L. Stedman

Quotes About Chameleon

"Compassion is a chameleon: it can wear the face of fear, anger, sadness, joy or even dispassion, depending on whats needed at the time. The compassionate Buddha has a smile in one eye and a tear in the other, and our Buddha mission is to lead people to true freedom, not to hold their hand and tell them that everything is going to be all right. In teaching, compassion means doing whatever needs to be done to get to the next phase." - Author: Gabrielle Roth
