AA Milne Quotes

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didnt know what it was called."

Orsov Quotes

"Defiant misery is never as rewarding as peaceful acceptance."

Hun Sen Quotes

G Arnell Williams Quotes

"Through the judicious employment of symbols, diagrams, and calculations, mathematics enables us to acquire significant facts about extremely significant things (universal laws, even), not by first forging out into the cosmos with teams of scientists, but rather from the comforts and confines of coffee tables in our living rooms! p. 72"

Vanessa Marano Quotes

"Everyone loves each other for the pilot. But once you start to do the show, you see everybodys true colors. If its successful, people start to change, and then if its not doing well, people start to change in other ways."

Patty Smith Quotes

"A lot of (childrens literature) beginners get bogged down by morals. A moral should never be driving the story. And a moral should never be confused with a plot. You cant preach to kids, and you cant talk down to them, either. Its amazing how they sense condescension."

JM Darhower Quotes

"Lifes a struggle, and it would be so easy if it came with an eraser, but it didnt. Whats done is done, as hard as that was to accept."

Peter Hart Quotes

"Its not just tougher out there. Its become a situation where the contest is how much you can destroy the system, rather than how much you can make it work. It makes no difference if you have a ‘D or an ‘R after your name. Theres no sense that this is about democracy, and after the election you have to work together, and knit the country together. The people in the game now just think to the first Tuesday in November, and not a day beyond it."

Robert Burton Quotes

"Every man hath a good and a bad angel attending on him in particular all his life long."

Quotes About Planet Venus

"Its all strange to me. I know I live on a fierce and magical planet, which sheds or surrenders rain or even flings it off in whipstroke after whipstroke, which fires out bolts of electric gold into the firmament at 186,000 miles per second, which with a single shrug of its tectonic plates can erect a city in half an hour. Creation … is easy, is quick. Theres also a universe, apparently. But I cannot bear to see the stars, even though I know theyre there all right, and I do see them, because Tod looks upward at night, as everybody does, and coos and points. The Plough. Sirius, the dog. The stars, to me, are like pins and needles, are like the routemap of a nightmare. Dont join the dots.… Of the stars, one alone can I contemplate without pain. And thats a planet. The planet they call the evening star, the morning star. Intense Venus." - Author: Martin Amis

Quotes About The Beaten Path

"That economics has a considerable conceptual apparatus with an appropriate terminology can not be a serious ground for complaint. Economic phenomena, ideas, instruments of analysis exist. They require names. Education in economics is, in considerable measure, an introduction to this terminology and to the ideas that it denotes. Anyone who has difficulties with the ideas should complete his education or, following an exceedingly well-beaten path, leave the subject alone. It is sometimes said that the economist has a special obligation to make himself understood because his subject is of such great and popular importance. By this rule the nuclear physicist would have to speak in monosyllables." - Author: John Kenneth Galbraith

Quotes About Even

"The woman at the desk was a university graduate, young, colourless, spectacled, and intensely disagreeable. She had a fixed suspicion that no one — at least, no male person — ever consulted works of reference except in search of pornography. As soon as you approached she pierced you through and through with a flash of her pince-nez and let you know that your dirty secret was no secret from HER. After all, all works of reference are pornographical, except perhaps Whitakers Almanack. You can put even the Oxford Dictionary to evil purposes by looking up words like —— and ——." - Author: George Orwell
