Abel Quotes

"In his wretched life of less than twenty-seven years Abel accomplished so much of the highest order that one of the leading mathematicians of the Nineteenth Century (Hermite, 1822-1901) could say without exaggeration, Abel has left mathematicians enough to keep them busy for five hundred years. Asked how he had done all this in the six or seven years of his working life, Abel replied, By studying the masters, not the pupils."

Quotes About Meaning The World To Me

"The greatest guilt of today is that of people who accept collectivism by moral default; the people who seek protection from the necessity of taking a stand, by refusing to admit to themselves the nature of that which they are accepting; the people who support plans specifically designed to achieve serfdom, but hide behind the empty assertion that they are lovers of freedom, with no concrete meaning attached to the word; the people who believe that the content of ideas need not be examined, that principles need not be defined, and that facts can be eliminated by keeping ones eyes shut. They expect, when they find themselves in a world of bloody ruins and concentration camps, to escape moral responsibility by wailing: "But I didnt mean this!" - Author: Ayn Rand

Quotes About Ending A Relationship

"Why is someone telling you they loved you so awful? I ask.‘Its not just that he told me he loved me, its more about he expected me to say it back. I dont like feeling cornered into saying stuff I dont feel and doing stuff I dont want to do. And anyway, love at our age is ridiculous, Renee says, tapping her toe in a puddle of water.Putting it like that makes more sense. People live whole lives together pretending to be in love. I guess Mum and Dad did that for most of their relationship. Then they realised they couldnt pretend any more but they were stuck with each other, and look where that got them. Ive never really thought about love being such a big deal before. I just presumed that if someone was kind enough to say it to me, I would be kind enough to say it back, but maybe you shouldnt just say ‘I love you. You have to mean it." - Author: Dawn OPorter

That was it. "You know, youre right. How wrong of me to call you a douchebag. Because a douchebag is too nice of a word for you," I said, smiling sweetly. "Youre a dickhead.""A dickhead?" he repeated. "How charming."I flipped him off." - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Quotes About Famous Solar System

"Anyway.Im not allowed to watch TV, although I am allowed to rent documentaries that are approved for me, and I can read anything I want. My favorite book is A Brief History of Time, even though I havent actually finished it, because the math is incredibly hard and Mom isnt good at helping me. One of my favorite parts is the beginning of the first chapter, where Stephen Hawking tells about a famous scientist who was giving a lecture about how the earth orbits the sun, and the sun orbits the solar system, and whatever. Then a woman in the back of the room raised her hand and said, "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." So the scientist asked her what the tortoise was standing on. And she said, "But its turtles all the way down!"I love that story, because it shows how ignorant people can be. And also because I love tortoises." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About Amazons

"And now my old dog is dead, and another I had after him, and my parents are dead, and that first world, that old house, is sold and lost, and the books I gathered there lost, or sold- but more books bought, and in another place, board by board and stone by stone, like a house, a true life built, and all because I was steadfast about one or two things: loving foxes, and poems, the blank piece of paper, and my own energy- and mostly the shimmering shoulders of the world that shrug carelessly over the fate of any individual that they may, the better, keep the Niles and Amazons flowing." - Author: Mary Oliver

Just for an hour or so?"Of course. Dagmar would never be one of the whores … she must be selling the whores."Five coppers for an hour," she replied. "Any more than that and itll cost you.""An hour will do." He reached into his pocket and handed her five copper pieces. She dropped them into her satchel, tapped Gwenvael on the shoulder, and said, "Hes bought you for an hour of sex. Enjoy." - Author: G.A. Aiken
