Margaret Weis Quotes

"He could hear himself screaming and he knew it was his death cry. Still he fought on, as he had fought all his life. I...will...control...The words came from his mouth, stained with his blood... I will control...Reaching out, his hands closed over the Staff on Magius. I will!"

Nick Webb Quotes

"long middle finger resembling a twig that it could use for probing for grubs. There is a telling example of convergent evolution when an unrelated species (the Long-Fingered Possum from Papua New Guinea) devised a similar strategy to address the same problem. (Douglas was very intrigued by the implications of convergence. What need is there to posit a designer if the operation of random forces, constrained by the reality of the world, produces the same elegant solution, as if there were no choice in the matter?) We monkeys have"

Quotes About What Makes You Who You Are

"A true thing about seeds is that they dont always stay seeds. In addition, most seeds grow up to be something. Some become plants or trees that then go about producing more seeds. Some seeds get popped and eaten and...well, you probably have a pretty good idea of what happens to things after they get eaten.Some seeds are dried, some are pressed for oil, and some simply end up in bean bags or as the rattle in a babys toy. Its probably fair to say that the life and times of a seed isnt necessarily the most exciting thing in the world, but what the seed lacks in excitement, it makes up for in miracles.Its a miracle that a tiny seed can change from a dot in your palm into a towering tree whose wood can be made into the home you live in or the paper books are printed on." - Author: Obert Skye

Quotes About State Constitutions

"Most Romans believed that their system of government was the finest political invention of the human mind. Change was inconceivable. Indeed, the constitutions various parts were so mutually interdependent that reform within the rules was next to impossible. As a result, radicals found that they had little choice other than to set themselves beyond and against the law. This inflexibility had disastrous consequences as it became increasingly clear that the Roman state was incapable of responding adequately to the challenges it faced. Political debate became polarized into bitter conflicts, with radical outsiders trying to press change on conservative insiders who, in the teeth of all the evidence, believed that all was for the best under the best of all possible constitutions (16)." - Author: Anthony Everitt

Quotes About Condoning

"As for the Republicans -- how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical American heritage...) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead." - Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Quotes About Nice Journalists

"Ever since the days when such formidable mediocrities as Galsworthy, Dreiser, Tagore, Maxim Gorky, Romain Rolland and Thomas Mann were being accepted as geniuses, I have been perplexed and amused by fabricated notions about so-called "great books." That, for instance, Manns asinine "Death in Venice," or Pasternaks melodramatic, vilely written "Dr. Zhivago," or Faulkners corn-cobby chronicles can be considered "masterpieces" or at least what journalists term "great books," is to me the sort of absurd delusion as when a hypnotized person makes love to a chair. My greatest masterpieces of twentieth century prose are, in this order: Joyces "Ulysses"; Kafkas "Transformation"; Belys "St. Petersburg," and the first half of Prousts fairy tale, "In Search of Lost Time." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Countdown

"The feeling I have reminds me of New Years Eve, when the countdown is coming and Im not quite sure whether to grab my camera or just live in the moment. Usually I grab the camera and later regret it when the picture doesnt turn out. Then I feel enormously let down and think to myself that the night would have been more fun if it didnt mean quite so much, if I werent forced to analyze where Ive been and where Im going." - Author: Emily Giffin

Quotes About Funny Secretary

"We cant lose you," she said after a few moments of awkward as hell silence. "You have to understand that we arent doing this because we dont care about Kat. Were doing this because we love you.""But I love her," I said without hesitation.Dees eyes widened, probably since it was the first time shed herd me say it out loud, well, about anyone other than my family. I wished I had said it more often, especially to Kat. Funny how that kind of shit always turns out in the end. While youre deep in something, you never say or do what you need to. Its always after the fact, when its too late that you realize what youve shouldve said or done/It couldnt be too late. I knew that. The fact that I was still alive was testament to that. Like Dee said, though, there were worse things than death." - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
