"Quickly, the dragon came at him, encouragedAs Beowulf fell back; its breath flared,And he suffered, wrapped around in swirlingFlames -- a king, before, but nowA beaten warrior. None of his comradesCame to him, helped him, his brave and nobleFollowers; they ran for their lives, fledDeep in a wood. And only one of themRemained, stood there, miserable, remembering,As a good man must, what kinship should mean."

Samuel Anders Quotes

The beauty the physics you know the wonder of mathematics. The elations of action and reaction and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to."

Quotes About Bullet Train

"Olson sat up. He put his hands against his belly and stared calmly at the poised soldiers on the deck of the squat vehicle. the soldiers stared back. You bastards! McVries sobbed. You bloody bastards! Olson began to get up. Another volley of bullets drove him flat again. Now there was a sound from behind Garraty. He didnt have to turn his head to know it was Stebbins. Stebbins was laughing softly. Olson sat up again. The guns were still trained on him, but the soldiers did not shoot. Their silhouettes on the halftrack seemed almost to indicate curiosity. Slowly, reflectively, Olson gained his feet, hands crossed on his belly. He seemed to sniff the air for direction, turned slowly in the direction of the Walk, and began to stagger along." - Author: Richard Bachman

Quotes About Boll

"Prijatelji moji, kao mladici imali smo tezak zivot, mi smo patili od mladosti kao da je to neka teska bolljka. To je dolazilo od veka u koji smo bili baceni, veka ogromnog unutrasnjeg opadanja i raspadanja, koji se sa svima svojim slabostima, pa cak i svojom najboljom snagom suprotstavlja duhu mladosti. Raspadanje, to jest neizvesnost, svojstveno je ovom veku, nista ne stoji na sigurnim nogama i tvrdoj veri u sebe, zivi se za sutra, jer je prekosutra neizvesno. Sve je klizavo i opasno na nasem putu, a uz to se jos otanjio led na kome stojimo, svi osecamo kako dise stravican, topao jug - gde mi jos sada gazimo, doskora niko vise nece moci da stane nogom." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Grandma Dying

"Grandmaster games are said to begin with novelty, which is the first move of the game that exits the book. It could be the fifth, it could be the thirty-fifth. We think about a chess game as beginning with move one and ending with checkmate. But this is not the case. The games begins when it gets out of book, and it end when it goes into book..And this is why Game 6 [between Garry Kasparov and Deep Blue] didnt count...Tripping and falling into a well on your way to the field of battle is not the same thing as dying in it...Deep Blue is only itself out of book; prior to that it is nothing. Just the ghosts of the game itself." - Author: Brian Christian
