[This Is What The Sabbath Should Feel Like. A Pause. Not Just A Minor Pause, But A Major Pause. Not Just Lowering The Volume, But A Muting. As The Famous Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Put It, The Sabbath Is A Sanctuary In Time.]

David Krumholtz Quotes

"Its really cool to know that youve put something together that isnt for a particular audience. Its so often that a TV show can really only speak to one sect of the population, and this really is something that appeals to a worldwide fan base. People who are into the pursuit of knowledge. Their reaction has meant the world to us."

James McAvoy Quotes

"As an actor sometimes you can be a bit emotional and forceful, and thats not always the way to be."

Anna Timofeeva Egorova Quotes

"I was amongst them – the first female pilot who had got admission to the Sturmoviks…Since my childhood Id been lucky enough to meet good people. Wherever I studied, wherever I worked I would meet loyal friends, kind-hearted tutors. I was trained at the factory school by the old craftsman Goubanov, I was assisted by the engineer Aliev, who was the shift boss, in my transfer to the most important sector of operations – the tunnel. I was trained by the superb instructor Miroevskiy in the aeroclub, the secretary of the Ulyanovsk District Comsomol Committee gave me a hand at a very hard moment of my life, then there was Maria Borek from Leningrad, the Secretary of the Smolensk District Comsomol Committee, the Commissar of the Smolensk aeroclub…Was it really possible to count all those who had warmed my soul with their sympathy and human kindness and helped me to realize my dream!"

Quotes About Hula Hoops

"Smoke was a person with a sense of history. Do you know what I mean?" ...in truth, I DID know what she meant. Da Vinci, Martin Luther King, Jr., Genghis Kahn, Abraham Lincoln, Bette Davis - if you read their definitive biographies, you learned even when they were a month old, cooing in some wobbly crib in the middle of nowhere, they already had something historic about them. The way other kids had baseball, long division, Hot Wheels, and hula hoops, these kids had History and thus tended to be prone to colds, unpopular, sometimes plagued with a physical deformity (Lord Byrons clubfoot, Maughams severe stutter, for example), which pushed them into exile in their heads. It was there they began to dream of human anatomy, civil rights, conquering Asia, a lost speech and being (within a span of four years) a jezebel, a marked woman, a little fox and an old maid." - Author: Marisha Pessl

Quotes About Things You Love To Do

"If you think of exercise as a 60-minute commitment 3 times a week at the gym, youre missing the point completely.

I know it sounds cliche, but you have to find things you love to do." - Author: Brett Hoebel

Quotes About Carl Yastrzemski

"The ballpark is the star. In the age of Tris Speaker and Babe Ruth, the era of Jimmie Foxx and Ted Williams, through the empty-seats epoch of Don Buddin and Willie Tasby and unto the decades of Carl Yastrzemski and Jim Rice, the ballpark is the star. A crazy-quilt violation of city planning principles, an irregular pile of architecture, a menace to marketing consultants, Fenway Park works. It works as a symbol of New Englands pride, as a repository of evergreen hopes, as a tabernacle of lost innocence. It works as a place to watch baseball" - Author: Martin F. Nolan

Quotes About Easier Times

"Armies have spent a lot of time and effort training their soldiers not to think of the enemy as human beings. Its so much easier to kill them if you think of them as dangerous animals. The trouble is, war isnt about killing. Its about getting the enemy to stop resisting your will. Like training a dog not to bite. Punishing him leaves you with a beaten dog. Killing him is a permanent solution, but youve got no dog. If you can understand why hes biting and remove the conditions that make him bite, sometimes that can solve the problem as well. The dog isnt dead. He isnt even your enemy." - Author: Orson Scott Card

Quotes About Being Right All Along

"To err is to wander and wandering is the way we discover the world and lost in thought it is the also the way we discover ourselves. Being right might be gratifying but in the end it is static a mere statement. Being wrong is hard and humbling and sometimes even dangerous but in the end it is a journey and a story. Who really wants to stay at home and be right when you can don your armor spring up on your steed and go forth to explore the world True you might get lost along get stranded in a swamp have a scare at the edge of a cliff thieves might steal your gold brigands might imprison you in a cave sorcerers might turn you into a toad but what of what To fuck up is to find adventure: it is in the spirit that this book is written." - Author: Kathryn Schulz
