Frank Bidart Quotes

"Horrible the fate of the advice-giver in our culture: to repeat oneself in a thousand contexts until death, or irrelevance.            *I abjure advice-giver."

Mick Cochrane Quotes

"Molly stood up. You made an error! She felt like saying. A bad throw. So what? Its a baseball game. A game. Who really cares? A bad throw? In the great scheme of things? A bad throw? Of course she didnt say that. She understood that your own errors always feel tragic."

MC Humphreys Quotes

"Quotes aint all that useful. Fact is, theres more concise ways to express what youre feelin, like screams and moans."

Scott Sigler Quotes

"This isnt D.C., Murrary, this is Ann Arbor, Michigan. This is a long-haired, pot-smoking little college town."

Isabel Belmonte Quotes

"Quien quiera hacer de Rembrandt un pensador, un rebelde enfrentado a su época, al encontrarse ante estas obras maestras deberá admitir que la verdad más convincente para definirlo es la furia creadora, una necesidad constante e irreprimible de representar con toda libertad y de consumir la vida en esta obsesión liberadora."

Vincent Ameh Quotes

"God does not deal with denomination, He deals with nomination and conformation for a higher life."

Wendy Rose Quotes

"I have always swung back and forth between alienation and relatedness. As a child, I would run away from the beatings, from the obscene words, and always knew that if I could run far enough, then any leaf, any insect, any bird, any breeze could bring me to my true home. I knew I did not belong among people. Whatever they hated about me was a human thing; the nonhuman world has always loved me. I cant remember when it was otherwise. But I have been emotionally crippled by this. There is nothing romantic about being young and angry, or even about turning that anger into art. I go through the motions of living in society, but never feel a part of it. When my family threw me away, every human on earth did likewise."

Michael Rubens Quotes

"At some level, Cole knew that Runk would kill his own grandmother if she looked at him wrong. He knew that because Runk HAD killed his own grandmother, although in fairness several witnesses testified that said grandmother had indeed looked at him wrong."

Quotes About Higher Thinking

"When we are tired or preoccupied - what psychologists call resource-depleted - we start to economise, to conserve those resources. Higher-order thinking is more expensive. So too is doubt, scepticism, arugment. Resource depletion specifically disables cognitive elaboration, wrote Harvard psychologist Daniel Gillbert...Because it takes less brain power to believe than to doublt, we are, when tired or distracted, gullible. Because we are all biased, and biases are quick and effortless, exhaustion tends to make us prefer the information we know and are comfortable with. We are too tired to do the heavier lifting of examining new or contradictory information, so we fall back on our biases the opinions and the people we already trust" - Author: Margaret Heffernan

Quotes About Extraterrestrials

"Occasionally, I get a letter from someone who is in "contact" with extraterrestrials. I am invited to "ask them anything." And so over the years Ive prepared a little list of questions. The extraterrestrials are very advanced, remember. So I ask things like, "Please provide a short proof of Fermats Last Theorem." Or the Goldbach Conjecture. And then I have to explain what these are, because extraterrestrials will not call it Fermats Last Theorem. So I write out the simple equation with the exponents. I never get an answer. On the other hand, if I ask something like "Should we be good?" I almost always get an answer." - Author: Carl Sagan

Quotes About Fangirl Tagalog

"It was the fangirl code for every book geek: read, chat, squeal. Re-read, chat, and squeal again, until its all over and the dreaded book funk sets in. Find the next best thing to fill the void, then repeat steps one through three as necessary." - Author: Rachael Wade

Quotes About Kabul

"Biyoloji tarafından destekelnen kuramsal kabuller temelinde, organik hayatı cansız duruma geri döndürme görevi verilen bir ‘ölüm güdüsü varsayımı ileri sürmüştük, öte yandan Eros; hayatı, parçacıklara bölünmüş canlı maddeyi karmaşıklaştırmak ve durmaksızın bir araya getirmek, bu arada, tabii ki onu korumak hedefine yönelir. Her iki güdü de yaşamın ortaya çıkmasıyla bozulmuş bir durumun yeniden oluşturulmasına çalışırken, kelimenin en dar anlamıyla tutucu davranırlar. O halde yaşamın ortaya çıkışı, yaşamayı sürdürmenin ve aynı zamanda ölüme yönelen çabanın sebebi olmaktaydı; yaşamın kendisi de bu iki çaba arasındaki mücadele ve uzlaşma idi. Böylece yaşamın kökenine ilişkin soru kozmolojik bir soru olarak kalırken, hayatın hedefi ve amacı sorunu ikili bir şekilde yanıtlanmış oluyor."Sigmund Freud, ‘Ben ve O, sayfa 72" - Author: Sigmund Freud
