11th Doctor Quotes

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things dont always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things dont always spoil the good things or make them unimportant."

Ruth Harris Quotes

"... he preferred being stimulated to being bored."

H Rider Haggard Quotes

"Think then what it is to live on here eternally and yet be human; toage in soul and see our beloved die and pass to lands whither we maynot hope to follow; to wait while drop by drop the curse of the longcenturies falls upon our imperishable being, like water slow drippingon a diamond that it cannot wear, till they be born anew forgetful ofus, and again sink from our helpless arms into the void unknowable."

Margaret J Wheatley Quotes

"Even though worker capacity and motivation are destroyed when leaders choose power over productivity, it appears that bosses would rather be in control than have the organization work well."

Nicolas Lemery Quotes

"A demonstrative and convincing proof that an acid does consist of pointed parts is, that not only all acid salts do Crystallize into edges, but all Dissolutions of different things, caused by acid liquors, do assume this figure in their Crystallization; these Crystalls consist of points differing both in length and bigness from one another, and this diversity must be attributed to the keener or blunter edges of the different sorts of acids."

Quotes About Role

"Perhaps that was the point; life, if you did it right, meant learning and changing. If you didnt, you died- or stopped growing - which amounted to more or less the same thing. So I would slide in and out of different roles until I discovered the one that fit me best.-Deuce, (183)" - Author: Ann Aguirre

Quotes About Collateral Damage

"A common strand appeared to unite these conflicts, and that was the advancement of a small coteries concept of American interests in the guise of the fight against terrorism, which was defined to refer only to the organized and politically motivated killing of civilians by killers not wearing the uniforms of soldiers. I recognized that if this was to be the single most important priority of our species, then the lives of those of us who lived in lands in which such killers also lived had no meaning except as collateral damage. This, I reasoned, was why America felt justified in bringing so many deaths to Afghanistan and Iraq, and why America felt justified in risking so many more deaths by tacitly using India to pressure Pakistan." - Author: Mohsin Hamid

Quotes About Wolves And Humans

"Wolves regularly attacked their rivals in power, so the idea of killing to gain position was neither alien nor repulsive to her. The use of assassins she had filed as yet another of the curious tools - like swords and bows — that humans created to make up for their lack of personal armament. What she still had to puzzle through was the subtle strategies involved in killing those who were expected to inherit power rather than those who held the power itself." - Author: Jane Lindskold

Quotes About Gasoline Prices

"America experienced its first oil shock. Within days of the cutoff, oil prices rose from $2.90 to $11.65 a barrel; gasoline prices soared from 20 cents to $1.20 a gallon, an all-time high. Across America, fuel shortages forced factories to close early and airlines to cancel flights. Filling stations posted signs: Sorry, No Gas Today. If a station did have gasoline, motorists lined up before sunrise to buy a few gallons; owners limited the amount sold to each customer. Motorists grew impatient. Fistfights broke out, and occasionally, gunfire. President Nixon called for America to end its dependence on foreign oil. Let us set as our national goal. . . that by the end of this decade we will have developed the potential to meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign energy source, he said. We have still not met this goal." - Author: Albert Marrin

Quotes About Money

"Barbara is on what is called the womans trip to the exclusion of almost everything else. When she and Tom and Max and Sharon need money, Barbara will take a part-time job, modeling or teaching kindergarten, but she dislikes earning more than ten or twenty dollars a week. Most of the time she keeps house and bakes. "Doing something that shows your love that way," she says, "is just about the most beautiful thing I know." Whenever I hear about the womans trip, which is often, I think a lot about nothin-says-lovin-like-something-from-the-oven and the Feminine Mystique and how it is possible for people to be the unconscious instruments of values they would strenuously reject on a conscious level, but I do not mention this to Barbara." - Author: Joan Didion

Quotes About Finding Out Love

"Love isnt about finding the perfect person. A perfect person does not exist. Love is about accepting someone for who they are completely, good and bad. Its about seeing their flaws and understanding that it makes them who they are. Love isnt always going to be easy, in fact it really shouldnt be. If love is easy, it isnt love." - Author: Crystal A. Cordero

Quotes About Painful Decisions

"Were only given one life, and its the one we live, she thought; how painful now, to realize that wasnt true, that you would have different lives, depending on how brave you were, and how ready. Love came to her that day - she was twenty-two - and wanted to take her, and she said no.Why are we asked to make the most important decisions of our lives when we are so young, and so prone to mistakes? Happiness came that day - she knew nothing - and asked her to say yes and she did not. Why did she assume it would come back again, when there were so many others waiting for it to visit?" - Author: Samuel Park

Quotes About Stopping Cutting

"Any do-gooder can save one life or a dozen by spending x dollars, but that doesnt demonstrate anything unless youve got x dollars multiplied by the total number of lives that need saving. Stopping poverty one victim at a time is like mowing a lawn one blade at a time. The problem grows faster than the cure can be applied, the only people who profit are the agencies who claim to be cutting grass while theyre actually applying fertilizer." - Author: Sheri S. Tepper
