"Just eat some chex mix and have a glass of milk and youll be fine."

PW Bridgman Quotes

"I believe it to be of particular importance that the scientist have an articulate and adequate social philosophy, even more important than the average man should have a philosophy. For there are certain aspects of the relation between science and society that the scientist can appreciate better than anyone else, and if he does not insist on this significance no one else will, with the result that the relation of science to society will become warped, to the detriment of everybody."

JH Glaze Quotes

Alberto Manguel Quotes

"Ive never really understood attachment to a place for reasons of birth. That my mother happened to give birth to me in a certain place doesnt, to my mind, justify any thankfulness towards that place. It could have been anywhere."

"Istnieje bolesny brak odpowiedniości między moją myślą i jej słownym wyrazem."

Charles Coulson Quotes

"One is almost tempted to say... at last I can almost see a bond. But that will never be, for a bond does not really exist at all: it is a most convenient fiction which, as we have seen, is convenient both to experimental and theoretical chemists."

Quotes About The Edge In Life

"The hatred I feel for him, for the phantom girl, for everything, is so real and immediate that it chokes me. Gale is mine. I am his. Anything else is unthinkable. Why did it take him being whipped within an inch of his life to see it? Because Im selfish. Im a coward. Im the kind of girl who, when she might actually be of use, would run to stay alive and leave those who couldnt follow to suffer and die. This is the girl Gale met in the woods today. No wonder I won the Games. No decent person ever does. You saved Peeta, I think weakly. But now I question even that. I knew good and well that my life back in District 12 would be unlivable if I let that boy die. I rest my head forward on the edge of the table, overcome with loathing for myself." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Clarity Of Mind

"Holmes had cultivated the ability to still the noise of the mind, by smoking his pipe and playing nontunes on the violin. He once compared this mental state with the sort of passive seeing that enables the eye, in a dim light or at a great distance, to grasp details with greater clarity by focusing slightly to one side of the object of interest. When active, strained vision only obscures and frustrates, looking away often permits the eyes to see and interpret the shapes of what it sees. Thus does inattention allow the mind to register the still, small whisper of the daughter of the voice." - Author: Laurie R. King

"You just look so scared, like Im going to disappear any minute. Were stuck on a spaceship, Wolf. Im not going anywhere." His lips twitched, his nervousness beginning to ease away, though his hand stayed tense over hers."Alpha female," he murmured. "I sort of like that."Beaming, Scarlet gave a mild shrug. "It could grow on me." - Author: Marissa Meyer

Quotes About Homophobia

"My grandmothers greatest gift was tolerance. Now, in the old days, Indians used to be forgiving of any kind of eccentricity. In fact, weird people were often celebrated. Epileptics were often shamans because people just assumed that God gave seizure-visions to the lucky ones. Gay people were seen as magical too. I mean, like in many cultures, men were viewed as warriors and women were viewed as caregivers. But gay people, being both male and female, were seen as both warriors and caregivers. Gay people could do anything. They were like Swiss Army knives! My grandmother had no use for all the gay bashing and homophobia in the world, especially among other Indians. "Jeez," she said, Who cares if a man wants to marry another man? All I want to know is whos going to pick up all the dirty socks?" (155)" - Author: Sherman Alexie
