[The Woman Who Refuses To Object, Who Doesn't Yell And Scream—there's Strength In That, And Power. The Way She Overrides Sentiment, Won't Enter Into Blaming Or Bickering, Never Gives Him An Opening, Doesn't Allow Him To Turn It Back On Her. She Knows That Her Refusal Leaves Him Alone With His Choices.]

Charles Herbert Best Quotes

"The situation with regard to insulin is particularly clear. In many parts of the world diabetic children still die from lack of this hormone. ... [T]hose of us who search for new biological facts and for new and better therapeutic weapons should appreciate that one of the central problems of the world is the more equitable distribution and use of the medical and nutritional advances which have already been established. The observations which I have recently made in parts of Africa and South America have brought this fact very forcible to my attention."

Michelle Latiolais Quotes

"She wished it were evening now, wished for the great relief of the calendar inking itself out, of day done and night coming, of ice cubes knocking about in a glass beneath the whisky spilling in, that fine brown affirmation of need."

Konrad Bloch Quotes

"I would not be among you to-night (being awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine) but for the mentors, colleagues and students who have guided and aided me throughout my scientific life. I wish I could name them all and tell you their contributions. More, however, than anyone else it was the late Rudolf Schoenheimer, a brilliant scholar and a man of infectious enthusiasm, who introduced me to the wonders of Biochemistry. Ever since, I have been happy to have chosen science as my career, and, to borrow a phrase of Jacques Barzun, have felt that Science is, in the best and strictest sense, glorious entertainment."

Quotes About Foolishness In Love

"He could not tell her that he was angry because she did not love him. Even he could not utter such foolishness. Certainly, he did not love her. He did not love anyone except perhaps Isaac and a very few of his other children. Yet he wanted Anyanwu to be like his many other women and treat him like a god in human form, competing for his attention no matter how repugnant his latest body nor even whether he might be looking for a new body. They knew he took women almost as readily as he took men. Especially, he took women who had already given him what he wanted of them--usually several children. They served him and never thought they might be his next victims. Someone else. Not them." - Author: Octavia E. Butler

Quotes About Pyro

"I toppled off my pyrotechnic tiger and, as I plunge downwards, endlessly as Lucifer, I ask myself: "What is the most miraculous event in the world?" And I answer myself: "I am going to fall into my own arms. They stretch out to me from the bottom of the pit." - Author: Angela Carter

Quotes About Deepest Love

"So, Belle, whats new today?"Dad," I said, grasping his hands and looking directly into his eyes. "Im in the deepest love that has ever occurred in the history of the world."Gosh, Belle. When someone asks you Whats new? the correct answer is Not much. Besides, isnt it a little soon to cut yourself off from the rest of your peers, depending on a boyfriend to satisfy your social needs as opposed to making friends? Imagine what would happen if something forced that boy to leave! Im imagining pages and pages would happen - with nothing but the names of the months on them." - Author: The Harvard Lampoon

Quotes About Nita

"Lespressione infantile del viso, unitamente alla delicata bellezza del busto, componevano il suo particolare incanto, che lui ben ricordava; ma quello che in lei lo coglieva sempre di sorpresa era lespressione degli occhi, miti, tranquilli e sinceri, e in particolare il suo sorriso, che trasportava sempre Levin in un mondo incantato, dove lui si sentiva ingentilito e intenerito, come poteva ricordare di essere lui stesso in rari giorni della sua prima infanzia" - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Patriarchal Society

"What we require is not a formal return to tradition and religion, but a rereading, a reinterpretation, of our history that can illuminate the present and pave the way to a better future. For example, if we delve more deeply into ancient Egyptian and African civilisations we will discover the humanistic elements that were prevalent in many areas of life. Women enjoyed a high status and rights, which they later lost when class patriarchal society became the prevalent social system." - Author: Nawal El Saadawi

Quotes About Shot Put And Discus

"I did volleyball, basketball, and track all through high school. And then I went to junior college and I stuck with track because I was good at shot put and discus. And then I got a full ride to Fresno State for their track program. Shot put was my main thing. I was the five-time All-American, and I set a couple records." - Author: Dot Jones

Quotes About Osama Bin Laden Jihad

"It can certainly be misleading to take the attributes of a movement, or the anxieties and contradictions of a moment, and to personalize or objectify them in the figure of one individual. Yet ordinary discourse would be unfeasible without the use of portmanteau terms—like Stalinism, say—just as the most scrupulous insistence on historical forces will often have to concede to the sheer personality of a Napoleon or a Hitler. I thought then, and I think now, that Osama bin Laden was a near-flawless personification of the mentality of a real force: the force of Islamic jihad. And I also thought, and think now, that this force absolutely deserves to be called evil, and that the recent decapitation of its most notorious demagogue and organizer is to be welcomed without reserve. Osama bin Ladens writings and actions constitute a direct negation of human liberty, and vent an undisguised hatred and contempt for life itself." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Passion And Inspiration

"She was a passionate reader, and she thought that reading was one of the noblest efforts of all; in contrast, she found writing to be a great waste of time—a childish self-indulgence, even messier than finger painting—but she admired reading, which she believed was an unselfish activity that provided information and inspiration. She must have thought it a pity that some poor fools had to waste their lives writing in order for us to have sufficient reading material. (page 236)" - Author: John Irving
