Pekka Himanen Quotes

"This primary question of life organization is immensely important. If making money is the main goal, a person can often forget what his or her true interests are or how he or she wants to deserve recognition from others. It is much more difficult to add on other values to a life that started out with just making money in mind than it is to make some personally interesting endeavor financially possible or even profitable."

Janice Hanna Quotes

"What would be the purpose of having an imagination and not using it?"

Robin Briggs Quotes

"To be the child of a conficted or reputed witch was inherently dangerous; in one pathetic case in Lorraine a young couple were both accused, and it emerged that they had decided to marry after attending an execution at the stake of their respective parents, so that they would have nothing to reproach one another with."

Shanna Swendson Quotes

"Ik begreep plotseling waarom de schaars geklede filmheldinnen altijd in katzwijm vielen in hun redders armen: niet omdat ze zulke slappe troelas waren, maar omdat je blijkbaar slappe knieën krijgt als een man iets heel bijzonders doet om jou te redden, en dat was, merkte ik nu, een plezierig gevoel."

R David Lankes Quotes

"To be a librarian is not to be neutral, or passive, or waiting for a question. It is to be a radical positive change agent within your community."

Diane Ackerman Quotes

"The idea of safety had shrunk into particles - one snug moment, then the next. Meanwhile, the brain piped fugues of worry and staged mind-theaters full of tragedies and triumphs, because unfortunately, the fear of death does wonders to focus the mind, inspire creativity, and heightens the senses. Trusting ones hunches only seems gamble if one has time for seem; otherwise the brain goes on autopilot and trades the elite craft of analysis for the best rapid insights that float up from its danger files and ancient bag of tricks."

Quotes About Stepping Stones

"Desire demands only a constant attention to the unknown gravitational field which surrounds us and from which we can recharge ourselves every moment, as if breathing from the atmosphere of possibility itself. A lifes work is not a series of stepping-stones onto which we calmly place our feet, but more like an ocean crossing where there is no path, only a heading, a direction, which, of itself, is in conversation with the elements." - Author: David Whyte

Quotes About Polygons

"2. The news was prioritized in a way I could not understand. For instance, there was nothing on new mathematical observations or still-undiscovered polygons, but quite a bit about politics, which on this planet was essentially all about war and money. Indeed, war and money seemed to be so popular on the news, it should more accurately have been titled The War and Money Show." - Author: Matt Haig

Quotes About Beach Hair

"Ultimately, the main reasons why I will be chubby for life are (1) I have virtually no hobbies except dieting. I cant speak any non-English languages, knit, ski, scrapbook, or cook. I have no pets. I dont know how to do drugs. I lost my passport three years ago when I moved into my house and never got it renewed. Video games scare me because they all seem to simulate situations Id hate to be in, like war or stealing cars. So if I ever lost weight I would also lose my only hobby; (2) I have no discipline; Im like if Private Benjamin had never toughened up but, in fact, got worse; (3) Guys Ive dated have been into me the way I am; and (4) Im pretty happy with the way I look, so long as I dont break a beach chair." - Author: Mindy Kaling

Quotes About The Duff

"Calling Vikki a slut or a whore was just like calling somebody the Duff. It was insulting and hurtful, and it was one of those titles that just fed off the inner fear every girl must have from time to time. Slut, bitch, prude, tease, ditz. They were all the same. Every girl felt like one of these sexist labels described her at some point." - Author: Kody Keplinger

Quotes About Christian Fanatics

"Many [Tudor-era religious radicals] believed then, exactly as Christian fundamentalists do today, that they lived in the last days before Armageddon and, again just as now, saw signs all around in the world that they took as certain proof that the Apocalypse was imminent. Again like fundamentalists today, they looked on the prospect of the violent destruction of mankind without turning a hair. The remarkable similarity between the first Tudor Puritans and the fanatics among todays Christian fundamentalists extends to their selective reading of the Bible, their emphasis on the Book of Revelation, their certainty of their rightness, even to their phraseology. Where the Book of Revelation is concerned, I share the view of Guy, that the early church fathers released something very dangerous on the world when, after much deliberation, they decided to include it in the Christian canon."[From the authors concluding Historical Note]" - Author: C.J. Sansom

Quotes About Proposing

"Exactly," Lightsong said, "Ive actually considered expanding the theory. I am now proposing to believe that God-or the universe, or time, or whatever you think controls all of this-is all really just a drunk monkey."She leaned over, squeezing her arms together, seriously threatening to pop her bosom out the front of her dress. "And, you think my title was chosen by happenstance? Goddess of honesty and imterpersonal relations. Seems to fit, wouldnt you say?"He hesitated. Then he smiled. "My dear, did you just try to prove the existence of God with your cleavage?"She smiled. "Youd be surprised what a good wriggle of the chest can accomplish.""Hum, Id never considered the theological power of your breasts, my dear. If there were a Church devoted to them, perhaps youd make a theist out of me after all." - Author: Brandon Sanderson

Quotes About What You Want To Be In Life

"You once told me you could stand many things." My voice was raspy from all the emotions battering against those well-honed inner defenses."So can I. I can stand whatever Apollyon dishes out, can take the bigotry from others over what I am, the freaky ghost juju from Marie, all thecraziness my mother can throw at me, and even the pain of my uncle dying. But the one thing that I would never, ever recover from would be losingyou. You made me promise before to go on if that happened, but Bones"—here my words broke and tears spilled down my cheeks—"I wouldntwant to."Hed been near the side of the bed when I started talking, but was in my arms before the first tear fell. Very softly, his lips brushed over those wetstreaks, coming back pink from the drops still shimmering on them."No matter what happens, you will never lose me," he whispered. "I am forever yours, Kitten, in this life or the next." - Author: Jeaniene Frost
