Andrew Marr Quotes

"In the end, does it really matter if newspapers physically disappear? Probably not: the world is always changing. But does it matter if organisations independent enough and rich enough to employ journalists to do their job disappear? Yes, that matters hugely; it affects the whole of life and society."

Gauss Quotes

"The best that Gauss has given us was likewise an exclusive production. If he had not created his geometry of surfaces, which served Riemann as a basis, it is scarcely conceivable that anyone else would have discovered it. I do not hesitate to confess that to a certain extent a similar pleasure may be found by absorbing ourselves in questions of pure geometry."

Ben Mitchell Quotes

"I wouldnt have minded school if they taught you important things like how to have good sex and what brand of wine is the best… But for some reason they were hell bent on teaching me algebra"

Judge Dennis D Yule Quotes

"Dr. Ofshe characterizes plaintiffs memories as progress toward ritual, satanic cult images,which he states fits a pattern he has observed of false memories. It appears to the Court,however, that in this regard, he is engaging in the same exercise for which he criticizes therapists dealing with repressed memory. Just as he accuses them of resolving at the outset defining repressed memories of abuse and then constructing them, he has resolved at the outset to find a macabre scheme of memories progressing toward a satanic cult ritual and then creates them. (p. 27)Proceedings before the HONORABLE DENNIS D.YULE, Superior Court Judge, in and for the County of Benton, on the 4th day of March 1994,at Kennewick, Washington(commenting on Lynn S. Crooks and her sisters successful case against their father, after successfully suing for incest)."

"I sighed and deleted the message, imagining the dirty clothes multiplying like rabbits, because thats what they do when Im not around."

Ben Affleck Quotes

"My mother taught public school, went to Harvard and then got her masters there and taught fifth and sixth grade in a public school. My dad had a more working-class lifestyle. He didnt go to college. He was an auto mechanic and a bartender and a janitor at Harvard."

Philip Chen Quotes

"If doesnt kill you outright, it just puts you into intensive care for months."

Eric Bischoff Quotes

Quotes About Western Pleasure

"In the world of animals, pain serves an equivocal role. Parental nips and swipes are common tools in upbringing. And socially, pain is sometimes used to maintain hierarchies of dominance. But this animal use of pain seems somewhat restrained, at least in contrast with the human situation. Here the capacity for pain is often used to systematically exploit and oppress at intensities often far beyond those seen in the behaviour of our nearest primate relatives. At the same time, at least in western culture, pain is rarely used for pleasure. Is it little wonder that all pain is viewed as intrinsically evil? Or that the pain-pleasure of leatherspace has been labelled torture?" - Author: Geoff Mains

Quotes About Themselves

"Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves." - Author: Charles Stanley

Quotes About Seek

"Faith is first of all not attachment to a body of doctrines but a process of responding in obedience and trust to Gods Word. God has given us the possibility of hearing the Word, since it was spoken in the humanity of Jesus, which we share, and since it continues to be spoken through the Holy Spirit, which dwells in us. So also theology is first of all not the study of doctrines, but a process of reflection on this response in faith. The classic definition of theology, "faith seeking understanding", remains always valid. Faith seeks to understand the one to whom it responds. It also, thereby, seeks to understand itself, and the implications of being so called and so gifted to respond. … Who, then, is qualified for theology? The theological task is implied by the very life of faith itself. Every Christian is therefore called to do theology in this sense. Every Christian must seek an understanding of his or her response to God and the implications of that response for the rest of life." - Author: Luke Timothy Johnson

Quotes About Growing Up Peter Pan

"But how can you be Peter Pan? You? The Boy Who Never Grew Up? Thats not you. You have egg on your collar. You cant fly. Youre not Alice. Alice was a blond little girl, I know it. Youre lying to me. And then they remember. What growing up really is: when they learned that boys cant fly and mermaids dont exist and White Rabbits dont talk and all boys grow old, even Peter Pan, as youve grown old. Theyve been deceived. As if youve somehow been lying to them. So following hard on the smile of remembrance is the pain in the eyes, which youve caused, everytime you meet someone." - Author: John Logan
