Kristin Armstrong Quotes

"I think, as most of us do, I put such high expectations on myself that this spills over onto other people. And not everyone is wired this way. Some people can shrug expectations off their shoulders like a cardigan, remaining cool and breezy. Others wear them like a parka with a stuck zipper, hot and stifling."

"Ill miss everybody too. But Ill be back for Christmas, and for the summer. Abuelita, its the best school in the United States.""Youll come back a different person. Worse, you wont want to come back after you see everything out there. Why would you want to come back to this horrible nada?""Abuelita, thats not true. Ill be back. Ill call you every week, on the weekends when its cheaper. Ill learn so much. Nobody at Ysleta has ever been to Harvard, at least no one the teachers can remember.""Its a great honor, mijo. We know that. Im sure everyone in Ysleta is proud of you. But this is who you are," she said, for a moment scanning the dark night air and the empty street. A cricket chirped in the darkness. "God help you when you go to this ‘Havid. You will be so far away from us, from everything you know. You will be alone. What if something happens to you? Whos going to help you? But you always wanted to be alone; you were always so independent, so stubborn.""Like you."

Aldo Leopond Quotes

"I now suspect that just as a deer herd lives in mortal fear of its wolves, so does a mountain live in mortal fear of its deer. And perhaps with better cause, for while a buck pulled down by wolves can be replaced in two or three years, a range pulled down by too many deer may fail for replacement in as many decades"

Quotes About Seeing Clearer

"And me, I got what I wanted.I died with my life around me."Isnt that what any of us would ask for, to be fully in our lives as we leave them, to have been ourselves all the way first? This is the gift that Phils love is giving to Bill. I know what the price of this is for Phil- the exhaustion, the continuous focus on another, the postponement of ones own needs, but he cant see himself the depth and magnitude of the gift; he is so far inside it he has no means to measure. What Im seeing is the kindest and sweetest mirror of the last of my life with Wally, and so rather than returning me to difficulty and pain, the visit is somehow restorative, bracingly genuine, consoling. Where could it be clearer, here in the heart of abandonment, what love achieves?" - Author: Mark Doty

Quotes About Magazine Publishing

"New York was packed with writers, real writers, because there were magazines, real magazines, loads of them. This was back when the Internet was still some exotic pet kept in the corner of the publishing world--throw some kibble at it, watch it dance on its little leash, oh quite cute, it definitely wont kill us in the night." - Author: Gillian Flynn

Quotes About Metacognition

"How do we regulate our emotions? The answer is surprisingly simple: by thinking about them. The prefrontal cortex allows each of us to contemplate his or her own mind, a talent psychologists call metacognition. We know when we are angry; every emotional state comes with self-awareness attached, so that an individual can try to figure out why hes feeling what hes feeling. If the particular feeling makes no sense—if the amygdala is simply responding to a loss frame, for example—then it can be discounted. The prefrontal cortex can deliberately choose to ignore the emotional brain." - Author: Jonah Lehrer

Quotes About Math Addition

"The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations, describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work - that is correctly to describe phenomena from a reasonably wide area. Furthermore, it must satisfy certain esthetic criteria - that is, in relation to how much it describes, it must be rather simple." - Author: John von Neumann

Quotes About Fear And Foresight

"Today is a new day! Let today be the day you free your mind from the prison of self doubt. Your thoughts can either hinder you or propel you to the next level.

Do what makes you happy in order to satisfy the core of your existence. Fear: to be afraid of something or someone whether the threat is real or imaginedPrecaution: a measure taken in advance to prevent something from happening, prudent foresightDoubt:a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction" - Author: Amaka Imani Nkosazana

Quotes About Keeping A Clean House

"I will be very careful the next time I fall in love, she told herself. Also, she had made a promise to herself that she intended on keeping. She was never going to go out with another writer: no matter how charming, sensitive, inventive or fun they could be. They werent worth it in the long run. They were emotionally too expensive and the upkeep was complicated. They were like having a vacuum cleaner around the house that broke all the time and only Einstein could fix it. She wanted her next lover to be a broom." - Author: Richard Brautigan

Quotes About Completing Something

"You have given me something ... I didnt even know I needed. Its the greatest gift I will ever receive--its, like, completing me already in places I wasnt aware were empty. And yet ... in spite of all that? I dont love you one bit more. You are as important to me as youve always been." He curled down and pressed a kiss to the loose shirt she was wearing--it was one of his, actually, and wasnt that great. "I was wholly bonded to you before this, and will be after this--and forevermore.""Youre going to make me cry again.""So cry. And let me take care of you. I got this." - Author: J.R. Ward

Quotes About Ruling With Fear

"True Christian fortitude consists in strength of mind, through grace, exerted in two things; in ruling and suppressing the evil and unruly passions and affections of the mind; and in steadfastly and freely exerting and following good affections and dispositions, without being hindered by sinful fear or the opposition of enemies... Though Christian fortitude appears in withstanding and counteracting the enemies that are without us; yet it much more appears in resisting and suppressing the enemies that are within us; because they are our worst and strongest enemies and have greatest advantage against us. The strength of the good soldier of Jesus Christ appears in nothing more than in steadfastly maintaining the holy calm, meekness, sweetness, and benevolence of his mind, amidst all the storms, injuries, strange behaviour, and surprising acts and events of this evil and unreasonable world." - Author: Jonathan Edwards
