Robert Fanney Quotes

"As an opener, Id like to state that elves are certainly NOT cliché. It doesnt matter if they all have pointy ears, or they all live a long time, or even if they all like forests. It doesnt matter if theyre short or tall or both. It doesnt matter if theyre related to forest spirits or even angels. Regardless of how many elves are like one another or how many elves appear in how many books, elves are NOT cliché.Why?Well, for one, an elf is a creature. How can a creature be a cliché? Is a human cliché? They certainly do appear in a lot of books! How about dragons? Now theres a popular subject! Are dragons cliché as well? Well what about vampires too? Or werewolves? Or bats? Or rabbits? Or mice? Or owls? Or crows? Cats??"

Michael Burawoy Quotes

"...I take as a point of departure the possibility and desirability of a fundamentally different form of society--call it communism, if you will--in which men and women, freed from the pressures of scarcity and from the insecurity of everyday existence under capitalism, shape their own lives. Collectively they decide who, how, when, and what shall be produced."

Dick Dale Quotes

Alex Scarrow Quotes

"She moans about everything anyway. Youre damned if you do, damned if you dont with a bitch like her."

Heinrich Harrer Quotes

"The country through which we had been travelling for days has an original beauty. Wide plains were diversified by stretches of hilly country with low passes. We often had to wade through swift running ice-cold brooks. It has long since we had seen a glacier, but as we were approaching the tasam at Barka, a chain of glaciers gleaming in the sunshine came into view. The landscape was dominated by the 25,000-foot peak of Gurla Mandhata; less striking, but far more famous, was the sacred Mount Kailash, 3,000 feet lower, which stands in majestic isolation apart from the Himalayan range."

Quotes About Playground

"An ideological movement is a collection of people many of whom could hardly bake a cake, fix a car, sustain a friendship or a marriage, or even do a quadratic equation, yet they believe they know how to rule the world. The university, in which it is possible to combine theoretical pretension with comprehensive ineptitude, has become the natural habitat of the ideological enthusiast. A kind of adventure playground, carefully insulated from reality in order to prevent absent-minded professors from bumping into things as they explore transcendental realms, has become the institutional base for civilizational self-hatred." - Author: Kenneth Minogue

Quotes About Devereaux

"In all honesty I really do like my name. Chase Alexander Devereaux. I think if theres one thing that my mom did right, it was picking out a unique, cool-sounding name for her kid. Sometimes I really wish I was as cool looking as my name though, or that I didnt always act like such a fag." - Author: Jeff Erno

Quotes About Yolo

"If i had a Gun and point it to your Head, you will Die because of Fear. If i had a Knife and point to your Neck, You will Die because of Fear Again. But When you are Smoking Cigaretts, when the Box itself says "Smoking Kills you", you say "No Problem, YOLO, or m Fine". Same goes for Drinking Alcohol, which Destroys youre Liver. So you are telling me its better to die from youre Own Hand rather than me Killing you?! Makes Sense?!" - Author: Abdul Bari Abdul Ghafoor.

Quotes About Bible Compromise

"The Bible is the weapon which enables us to join with our Lord on the offensive in defeating the spiritual hosts of wickedness. But is must be the Bible as the Word of God in everything it teaches- in matters if salvation, but just as much where it speaks of history and science and morality. If we compromise in any if these areas...we destroy the power of the Word and ourselves in the hands of the enemy." - Author: Francis August Schaeffer

Quotes About Internal Combustion Engines

"It is a mistake," he said, " to suppose that the public wants the environment protected or their lives saved and that they will be grateful to any idealist who will fight for such ends. What the public wants is their own individual comfort. We know that well enough from our experience in the environmental crisis of the twentieth century. Once it was well known that cigarettes increased the incidence of lung cancer, the obvious remedy was to stop smoking, but the desired remedy was a cigarette that did not cause cancer. When it became clear that the internal-combustion engine was polluting the atmosphere dangerously, the obvious remedy was to abandon such engines, and the desired remedy was to develop non-polluting engines." - Author: Isaac Asimov

Quotes About Experiments On Animals

"It was in the attempt to ascertain the interrelationships between species that experiments n genetics were first made. The words "evolution" and "origin of species" are now so intimately associated with the name of Darwin that we are apt to forger that the idea of common descent had been prominent in the mnds of naturalists before he wrote, and that, for more than half a century, zealous investigators had been devoting themselves to the experimental study of that possibility. Prominent among this group of experimenters may be mentioned Koelreauter, John Hunter, Herbert Knight, Gartner, Jordan. Naudin, Godron, Lecoq, Wichura--men whose names are familiar to every reader of Animals and Plants unders Domestication." - Author: William Bateson

Quotes About Desks

"Dont equate activity with efficiency. You are paying your key people to see the big picture. Dont let them get bogged down in a lot of meaningless meetings and paper shuffling. Announce a Friday afternoon off once in a while. Cancel a Monday morning meeting or two. Tell the cast of characters youd like them to spend the amount of time normally spent preparing for attending the meeting at their desks, simply thinking about an original idea." - Author: Harvey MacKay

Quotes About Motivational Synergy

"Sarai had treasured every stage of Rachels childhood, enjoying the day-to-day normalcy of things; a normalcy which she quietly accepted as the best of life. She had always felt that the essence of human experience lay not primarily in the peak experiences, the wedding days and triumphs which stood out in the memory like dates circled in red on old calendars, but, rather, in the unself-conscious flow of little things - the weekend afternoon with each member of the family engaged in his or her own pursuit, their crossings and connections casual, dialogues imminently forgettable, but the sum of such hours creating a synergy which was important and eternal." - Author: Dan Simmons
