[The Greeks Were Smarter Than Us, And They Had Different Words For Different Kinds Of Love. There's Storge, Which Is Family Love. That's Not Us. There's Eros, Which Is Sexual Love. There's Philia, Which Is Brotherly Love. And Then There's The Highest Form. Agape." He Pronounced It 'aga-pay'. "Thats Transcendental Love, Like When You Place The Other Person Above Yourself.]

Quotes About Kaitlyn

"Asking Wolf to couples skate is like bungee jumping without a cord-it may be the bravest thing Ive ever done in my life.Or it could be the stupidest.Theres only one way to find out.I look him dead in the eyes, summoning up both my courage and my sense of reckless abandon, but before I can even speak one syllable-"Oh!" he says, looking over one shoulder and dropping his hands. "Kaitlyns free now. I gotta get over there!"He rushes off, blowing me an air kiss.My mouth should get used to falling open when hes around, either from his good looks or from his total lack of comprehension of all things polite. Did that just happen?My face in my palms, I lean on my elbows against the rail, invisible, and fall into an intoxicating state of self-pity." - Author: Alecia Whitaker

Quotes About Electromagnetic Force

"Widespread introduction of the process [of irradiating foods] has thus far been impeded, however, by a reluctance among consumers to eat things that have been exposed to radiation. According to current USDA regulations, irradiated meat must be identified with a special label and with a radura (the internationally recognized symbol of radiation). The Beef Industry Food Safety Council - whose members include the meatpacking and fast food giants - has asked the USDA to change its rules and make the labeling of irradiated meat completely voluntary. The meatpacking industry is also working hard to get rid of the word irradiation,; much preferring the phrase cold pasteurization....From a purely scientific point of view, irradiation may be safe and effective. But he [a slaughterhouse engineer] is concerned about the introduction of highly complex electromagnetic and nuclear technology into slaughterhouses with a largely illiterate, non-English-speaking workforce." - Author: Eric Schlosser

Quotes About Madame De Pompadour

"They could not help loving anything that made them laugh. The Lisbon earthquake was "embarrassing to the physicists and humiliating to theologians" (Barbier). It robbed Voltaire of his optimism. In the huge waves which engulfed the town, in the chasms which opened underneath it, in volcanic flames which raged for days in the outskirts, some 50,000 people perished. But to the courtiers of Louis XV it was an enormous joke. M. de Baschi, Madame de Pompadours brother-in-law, was French Ambassador there at the time. He saw the Spanish Ambassador killed by the arms of Spain, which toppled onto his head from the portico of his embassy; Baschi then dashed into the house and rescued his colleagues little boy whom he took, with his own family, to the country. When he got back to Versailles he kept the whole Court in roars of laughter for a week with his account of it all. "Have you heard Baschi on the earthquake?" - Author: Nancy Mitford
