"Sometimes running for Congress is a four-year strategy in terms of getting out there and building a network."

Charles H Best Quotes

"A story about the Jack Spratts of medicine [was] told recently by Dr. Charles H. Best, co-discoverer of insulin. He had been invited to a conference of heart specialists in North America. On the eve of the meeting, out of respect for the fat-clogs-the-arteries theory, the delegates sat down to a special banquet served without fats. It was unpalatable but they all ate it as a duty. Next morning Best looked round the breakfast room and saw these same specialists—all in the 40-60 year old, coronary age group—happily tucking into eggs, bacon, buttered toast and coffee with cream."

Knut Hamsun Quotes

"The poet must always, in every instance, have the vibrant word... that by its trenchancy can so wound my soul that it whimpers.... One must know and recognize not merely the direct but the secret power of the word; one must be able to give ones writing unexpected effects. It must have a hectic, anguished vehemence, so that it rushes past like a gust of air, and it must have a latent, roistering tenderness so that it creeps and steals ones mind; it must be able to ring out like a sea-shanty in a tremendous hour, in the time of the tempest, and it must be able to sigh like one who, in tearful mood, sobs in his inmost heart."

Joe Mantegna Quotes

"I mean, its the life lessons that I suppose you learn that nobody gets a free ride and that you do the best you can with the means that you can and try to open yourself to as much knowledge and all that that you can."

Alexa Davalos Quotes

"My normal life is, I love to travel and I travel as often as I can. I dont stay in one place too long. But Im an avid reader; I guess you could say Im a bit of a bookworm."

Wayne C Booth Quotes

"We may exhort ourselves to read tolerantly, we may quote Coleridge on the willing suspension of disbelief until we think ourselves totally suspended in a relativistic universe, and still we will find many books which postulate readers we refuse to become, books that depend on beliefs or attitudes...which we cannot adopt even hypothetically as our own."

James Truslow Adams Quotes

"As we look over the list of the early leaders of the republic, Washington, John Adams, Hamilton, and others, we discern that they were all men who insisted upon being themselves and who refused to truckle to the people. With each succeeding generation, the growing demand of the people that its elective officials shall not lead but merely register the popular will has steadily undermined the independence of those who derive their power from popular election. The persistent refusal of the Adamses to sacrifice the integrity of their own intellectual and moral standards and values for the sake of winning public office or popular favor is another of the measuring rods by which we may measure the divergence of American life from its starting point."

Bear Bryant Quotes

"I plan on staying at Alabama for the rest of my career. I guarantee that Ill be here for you through it all, regardless of what happens."

Quotes About King Josiah

"As soon as Joe was done feeding Ira Kenbys fucking dog, he was going to call social services again, and Casey would be taken to a home that would be more appropriate for a runaway. So really, Joe would say, they owed much of their lives together to a senile old man and a dog tortured by hunger to the point it didnt know better. (Casey would always reply that they would have met again, because there was just no way they could have lived without each other, but Joes faith didnt run that deep. Casey would say that was because Joe didnt have a Josiah Daniels in his life, and Joe would shake his head and walk off, but that was later in their story.)" - Author: Amy Lane

Quotes About Oblivious Love

"Bedding her could be anything from tenderness to riot, but to take her when she was a bit the worse for drink was always a particular delight.Intoxicated, she took less care for him than usual; abandoned and oblivious to all but her own pleasure, she would rake him, bite him - and beg him to serve her so, as well. He loved the feeling of power in it, the tantalizing choice between joining her at once in animal lust, or of holding himself-for a time- in check, so as to drive her at his whim." - Author: Diana Gabaldon

"Im worried that students will take their obedient place in society and look to become successful cogs in the wheel - let the wheel spin them around as it wants without taking a look at what theyre doing. Im concerned that students not become passive acceptors of the official doctrine thats handed down to them from the White House, the media, textbooks, teachers and preachers." - Author: Howard Zinn

Quotes About Mindless Violence

"War as a moral metaphor is limited, limiting, and dangerous. By reducing the choices of action to "a war against" whatever-it-is, you divide the world into Me or Us (good) and Them or It (bad) and reduce the ethical complexity and moral richness of our life to Yes/No, On/Off. This is puerile, misleading, and degrading. In stories, it evades any solution but violence and offers the reader mere infantile reassurance. All too often the heroes of such fantasies behave exactly as the villains do, acting with mindless violence, but the hero is on the "right" side and therefore will win. Right makes might." - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin

But Bathsheba Winngate, the most notorious woman in all of England, he noticed.""We notorious women tend to stand out," she said." - Author: Loretta Chase

Quotes About Joyce

"I never asked Tolstoy to write for me, a little colored girl in Lorain, Ohio. I never asked [James] Joyce not to mention Catholicism or the world of Dublin. Never. And I dont know why I should be asked to explain your life to you. We have splendid writers to do that, but I am not one of them. It is that business of being universal, a word hopelessly stripped of meaning for me. Faulkner wrote what I suppose could be called regional literature and had it published all over the world. Thats what I wish to do. If I tried to write a universal novel, it would be water. Behind this question is the suggestion that to write for black people is somehow to diminish the writing. From my perspective there are only black people. When I say people, thats what I mean." - Author: Toni Morrison
