Most Of The Buildings Here Had Gone Up In The 1960s, And Rebus Hated Them: Blocks Of Sand-colored Concrete Replacing The Square's Original Eighteenth-century Town Houses. Rows Of Treacherous Steps, And A Notorious Wind-tunnel Effect Which Could Blow Over The Unwary On The Wrong Day. Students Walked Between The Buildings, Hugging Books And Folders In Front Of Them. Some Stood And Chatted In Groups."Bloody Students," Was Wylie's Concise Summing-up Of The Situation.]

Gangaji Quotes

"We have tried everything to get rid of suffering. We have gone everywhere to get rid of suffering. We have bought everything to get rid of it. We have ingested everything to get rid of it. Finally, when one has tried enought, there arises the possibility of spiritual maturity with the willingness to stop the futile attempt to get rid of it and, instead, to actually experience suffering. In that momentous instant, there is the realization of that which is beyond suffering, of that which is untouched by suffering. There is the realization of who one truly is."-Gangaji"

Quotes About Powerful

"And maybe love is terrifying. Im terrified now, but not in the way she would think.Im terrified because I hate who she is and what shes done, I do, and yet there is still something strong and powerful between us, some kind of deep, primal bond that wont end, wont snap or break or change, it just remains there inside me, as sold and factual as my blood and bones - she is my mother, I am her daughter - and I dont know what to call it because it doesnt feel like love, not the good kind I felt for Ellie, with all my heart, but instead an instinctual pull thats been there from the beginning, drawing me back to her again and again, the woman who has hurt me like no one else ever could, and now shes dying and the bond is still here, inside me, and I wont call it love or hate because emotions has nothing to do with the fact that she is my mother and I am her daughter, and we will be connected in that way forever." - Author: Laura Wiess

Quotes About Car Maintenance

"The sooner we associate long hours and multitasking with incompetence and carelessness the better. The next time you hear boasts of executives pulling an all-nighter or holding conference calls in their cars, be sure to offer your condolences; its grim being stuck in sweatshops run by managers too ignorant to understand productivity and risk. Working people like this is as smart as running your factory without maintenance.

In knowledge-based economies, that machinery is the mind." - Author: Margaret Heffernan
