Stahl Quotes

"About eight days ago I discovered that sulfur in burning, far from losing weight, on the contrary, gains it; it is the same with phosphorus; this increase of weight arises from a prodigious quantity of air that is fixed during combustion and combines with the vapors. This discovery, which I have established by experiments, that I regard as decisive, has led me to think that what is observed in the combustion of sulfur and phosphorus may well take place in the case of all substances that gain in weight by combustion and calcination; and I am persuaded that the increase in weight of metallic calyxes is due to the same cause... This discovery seems to me one of the most interesting that has been made since Stahl and since it is difficult not to disclose something inadvertently in conversation with friends that could lead to the truth I have thought it necessary to make the present deposit to the Secretary of the Academy to await the time I make my experiments public."

Quotes About Recovering Trust

"Recovering is a process of coming to experience a sense of self. More precisely, it is a process of learning to sense ones self, to attune to ones subjective physical, psychic, and social self- experience. These womans core sense of shame and their difficulty tolerating painful emotions had led them to avoid turning their attention inward to their internal sense of things. In recovering, they "came to their senses" and learned to trust their sensed experience, in particular their sense of "enoughness""." - Author: Sheila M. Reindl

Quotes About Nama

"Dati naman akong masaya bago pa siya dumating. Mas sumaya nga lang nung dumating siya. Pero bakit nung umalis siya, hindi na ako naging kasinsaya gaya ng dati bago pa siya dumating? Hindi kaya dahil imbes na isama ko siya sa daigdig ko, siya ang ginawa kong daigdig? Kung naging masaya ako bago siya dumating, pwede rin akong maging masaya kahit wala na siya. Hindi siya ang dahilan ng pag-inog ng mundo ko, hindi rin dapat siya ang dahilan ng pagtigil nito." - Author: Eros Atalia

Quotes About Funny Gummy Bears

"Writers are funny about reviews: when they get a good one they ignore it-- but when they get a bad review they never forget it. Every writer I know is the same way: you get a hundred good reviews, and one bad, andyou remember only the bad. For years, you go on and fantasize about the reviewer who didnt like your book; you imagine him as a jerk, a wife-beater, a real ogre. And, in the meantime, the reviewer has forgotten all about the whole thing. But, twenty years later, the writer still remembers that one bad review." - Author: Art Buchwald
