Ernie Harwell Quotes

"Baseball is a spirited race of man against man, reflex against reflex. A game of inches. Every skill is measured. Every heroic, every failing is seen and cheered, or booed. And then becomes a statistic."

Simon Sinek Quotes

"AUGUST 5, 1981. Thats the date it became official. Its rare that we can point to an exact date when a business theory or idea becomes an accepted practice. But in the case of mass layoffs, we can. August 5, 1981, was the day President Ronald Reagan fired more than 11,000 air traffic controllers."

Jon Gordon Quotes

"While your company has had other leaders stir the pot, they have never had you lead the way. The past is the past. The leaders before you made decisions that resulted in bad soup. But you can make new soup, and, remember, the most important ingredient is you. Who stirs the pot matters, and you, my dear, matter a lot."

Khaled Hosseini Quotes

"Its a funny thing, Markos, but people mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really what guides them is what theyre afraid of. What they dont want."

Kathleen ONeal Gear Quotes

"Life moved, as inconstant and fickle as Wind Baby, frolicking, sleeping, weeping, but never truly still. Never solid or finished. Always like water flowing from one place to the next. Seed and fruit. Rain and drought, everything traveled in a gigantic circle, an eternal process of becoming something new. But we rarely saw it. Humans tended to see only frozen moments, not the flow of things."

Herbert Butterfield Quotes

"History is not the study of origins; rather it is the analysis of all the mediations by which the past was turned into our present."

Evan Peters Quotes

"If you get an audition and youre out of work, you just say, Ive gotta go on this."

Yuko Arisawa Quotes

"Kekaguman lebih baik hanya tetap sebagai kekaguman. Kalau terlalu dekat.. Bisa seperti ikarus yang jatuh ke bumi karena sayapnya terbakar matahari.."

Sven Birkerts Quotes

"What reading does, ultimately, is keep alive the dangerous and exhilarating idea that a life is not a sequence of lived moments, but a destiny...the time of reading, the time defined by the authors language resonating in the self, is not the worlds time, but the souls. The energies that otherwise tend to stream outward through a thousand channels of distraction are marshaled by the cadences of the prose; they are brought into focus by the fact that it is an ulterior, and entirely new, world that the reader has entered. The free-floating self--the self we diffusely commune with while driving or walking or puttering in the kitchen--is enlisted in the work of bringing the narrative to life. In the process, we are able to shake off the habitual burden of insufficient meaning and flex our deeper natures."

Evel Knievel Quotes

"If Im out trailriding, I have a favorite motorcycle. Riding on the road, Ive got a favorite. If Im jumping, I have a favorite, and if Im racing, I have a favorite."

Quotes About Houses

"My birthplace was California, but I couldnt forget Armenia, so what is ones country? Is it land of the earth, in a specific place? Rivers there? Lakes? The sky there? The way the moon comes up there? And the sun? Is ones country the trees, the vineyards, the grass, the birds, the rocks, the hills and summer and winter? Is it the animal rhythm of the living there? The huts and houses, the streets of cities, the tables and chairs, and the drinking of tea and talking? Is it the peach ripening in summer heat on the bough? Is it the dead in the earth there?" - Author: William Saroyan

Quotes About Professionalism

"The corporate reform movement has co-opted progressive themes and language in the service of radical purposes. Advocating the privatization of public education is deeply reactionary. Disabling or eliminating teachers unions removes the strongest voice in each state to advocate for public education and to fight crippling budget cuts. In every state, classroom teachers are experts in education; they know what their students need, and their collective voice should be part of any public decision about school improvement. Stripping teachers of their job protections limits academic freedom. Evaluating teachers by the test scores of their students undermines professionalism and encourages teaching to the test. Claiming to be in the forefront of a civil rights movement while ignoring poverty and segregation is reactionary and duplicitous." - Author: Diane Ravitch

Quotes About Racing Horses

"There is a sociology of horses, as well as a psychology. It is most evident in the world of horse racing, where many horses are gathered together, where year after year, decade after decade, they do the same, rather simple thing - run in races and try to win." - Author: Jane Smiley

Quotes About No Condition Is Permanent

"So, in the end, above ground you must have the Haves, pursuing pleasure and comfort and beauty, and below ground the Have-nots, the Workers getting continually adapted to the conditions of their labour. Once they were there, they would no doubt have to pay rent, and not a little of it, for the ventilation of their caverns; and if they refused, they would starve or be suffocated for arrears. Such of them as were so constituted as to be miserable and rebellious would die; and, in the end, the balance being permanent, the survivors would become as well adapted to the conditions of underground life, and as happy in their way, as the Upper-world people were to theirs." - Author: H.G. Wells

Quotes About Nightingales

"No guinea of earned money should go to rebuilding the college on the old plan just as certainly none could be spent upon building a college upon a new plan: therefore the guinea should be earmarked "Rags. Petrol. Matches." And this note should be attached to it. "Take this guinea and with it burn the college to the ground. Set fire to the old hypocrisies. Let the light of the burning building scare the nightingales and incarnadine the willows. And let the daughters of educated men dance round the fire and heap armful upon armful of dead leaves upon the flames. And let their mothers lean from the upper windows and cry, "Let it blaze! Let it blaze! For we have done with this education!" - Author: Virginia Woolf
