Marina Anderson Quotes

"There can be as much joy of giving pleasure as to receive it."

Andrew X Pham Quotes

"Nobody gives way to anybody. Everyone just angles, points, dives directly toward his destination, pretending it is an all-or-nothing gamble. People glare at one another and fight for maneuvering space. All parties are equally determined to get the right-of-way--insist on it. They swerve away at the last possible moment, giving scant inches to spare. The victor goes forwards, no time for a victory grin, already engaging in another contest of will. Saigon traffic is Vietnamese life, a continuous charade of posturing, bluffing, fast moves, tenacity and surrenders."

Willard Libby Quotes

"And yet the Nobel Prizes, in singling out individuals, have done a great deal of good in pointing up to the world as a whole and setting forth clearly goals for achievement."

Sir Sidney Lee Quotes

"I told you in the course of this paper that Shakespeare had a sister; but do not look for her in Sir Sidney Lees life of the poet. She died young--alas, she never wrote a word. She lies buried where the omnibuses now stop, opposite the Elephant and Castle. Now my belief is that this poet who never wrote a word and was buried at the crossroads still lives. She lives in you and in me, and in many other women who are not here tonight, for they are washing up the dishes and putting the children to bed. But she lives; for great poets do not die; they are continuing presences; they need only the opportunity to walk among us in the flesh."

Didier Sornette Quotes

"Economic theory dictates that the value of a company is basically the present value of its future profits. To estimate Facebooks value through its future profits, we need to have a view on its user growth and how this will evolve in the next 10 to 50 years."

Quotes About Accidents Happening

"It is true that going out on to the street implies the risk of accidents happening, as they would to any ordinary man or woman. But if the church stays wrapped up in itself, it will age. And if I had to choose between a wounded church that goes out on to the streets and a sick, withdrawn church, I would definitely choose the first one." - Author: Pope Francis

Quotes About Pout

"Yet this is life. For hardly have we mortals by long toilings extracted from this worlds vast bulk its small but valuable sperm; and then, with weary patience, cleansed ourselves from its defilements, and learned to live here in clean tabernacles of the soul; hardly is this done, when-There she blows!-the ghost is spouted up, and away we sail to fight some other world, and go through young lifes old routine again." - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Opportunity And Challenge

"If you view everything through the lens of fear, then you tend to stay in retreat mode. You can just as easily see a crises or problem as a challenge, an opportunity to prove your mettle, the chance to strengthen and toughen yourself, or a call to collective action. By seeing it as a challenge, you will have converted this negative into a positive purely by a mental process that will result in positive action as well." - Author: Robert Greene

Quotes About Loving One Girl

"The grandest ambition that any man can possibly have, is to so live, and so improve himself in heart and brain, as to be worthy of the love of some splendid woman; and the grandest ambition of any girl is to make herself worthy of the love and adoration of some magnificent man. That is my idea. There is no success in life without love and marriage. You had better be the emperor of one loving and tender heart, and she the empress of yours, than to be king of the world. The man who has really won the love of one good woman in this world, I do not care if he dies in the ditch a beggar, his life has been a success." - Author: Robert G. Ingersoll

Quotes About Questioning Society

"Those are life-and-death-type experiences he goes through in the mines. Eventually he gets out and goes back to his old life. But nothing in the novel shows he learned anything from these experiences, that his life changed, that he thought deeply now about the meaning of life or started questioning society or anything. You dont get any sense, either, that hes matured. You have a strange feeling after you finish the book. Its like you wonder what Soseki was trying to say. Its like not really knowing what hes getting at is the part that stays with you." - Author: Haruki Murakami
