Gerald Howard Quotes

"Work—especially the sort of work that gets your hands dirty and that brands you as a member of the working class—no longer seems germane to our novelists apprenticeships and, not coincidentally, is no longer easy to find in the fiction they produce. Whether one finds this scarcity something to worry about or simply a fact to be noted probably says a lot about ones class origins and prejudices."

Quotes About Astronomy And Universe

"What I aim to do is not so much learn the names of the shreds of creation that flourish in this valley, but to keep myself open to their meanings, which is to try to impress myself at all times with the fullest possible force of their very reality. I want to have things as multiply and intricately as possible present and visible in my mind. Then I might be able to sit on the hill by the burnt books where the starlings fly over, and see not only the starlings, the grass field, the quarried rock, the viney woods, Hollins pond, and the mountains beyond, but also, and simultaneously, feathers barbs, springtails in the soil, crystal in rock, chloroplasts streaming, rotifers pulsing, and the shape of the air in the pines. And, if I try to keep my eye on quantum physics, if I try to keep up with astronomy and cosmology, and really believe it all, I might ultimately be able to make out the landscape of the universe. Why not?" - Author: Annie Dillard

Science will bring, not a sword, but peace." - Author: Robert G. Ingersoll

Quotes About Repeated

"The voice came from the night all around him, in his head and out of it."What do you want? it repeated.He wondered if he dared to turn and look, realised he did not.Well? You come here every night, in a place where the living are not welcome. I have seen you.Why?I wanted to meet you, he said, without looking around. I want to live for ever. His voice crackedas he said it.He had stepped over the precipice. There was no going back. In his imagination, he could alreadyfeel the prick of needle-sharp fangs in his neck, a sharp prelude to eternal life.The sound began. It was low and sad, like the rushing of an underground river. It took him severallong seconds to recognise it as laughter.This is not life, said the voice.It said nothing more, and after a while the young man knew he was alone in the graveyard." - Author: Neil Gaiman
