"Instinct is a makeshift, an admission of helplessness before the problem of reality."

Guy P Harrison Quotes

"I suggest we embrace the phrase, "I dont know." It seems to get a bad rap, but "I dont know" is a respectable answer when one "doesnt know"

Natalie Dormer Quotes

"Famously, Anne Boleyn was not a beauty: she was more about quirkiness and an innate sensuality, and there are a lot of references to her eyes. Which sends out a great message for women, because life is not about the aesthetic all the time."

Guy T Simpson Jr Quotes

"Your memories dont possess you, you possess your memories."

Moritz Schlick Quotes

"Philosophy is that activity by which the meaning of propositions is established or discovered; it is a question of what the propositions actually mean. The content, soul, and spirit of science naturally consist in what is ultimately meant by its sentences; the philosophical activity of rendering significant is thus the alpha and omega of all scientific knowledge.[Moritz Schlick interpreting Ludwig Wittgensteins position]"

Pete Hautman Quotes

"We sit on the floor in front of his oscillating fan and talk sci-fi, and I am thinking how strange this is that I should be sitting peacefully with Henry Stagg in his bedroom when only a week or so ago he punched me in the face for no reason whatsoever."

Shaun F Messick Quotes

"Almost two hundred sixty-six years ago on my home world, Earth, my forefathers did the same thing. They declared their independence and free agency from an enemy that oppressed them. No one at that time expected this rebellion force to win the war. They were severely outnumbered, and they were extremely inexperienced compared to their enemy. Despite those odds, they succeeded in winning the war, giving them their independence and freewill to choose. (Adrian Palmer, Worlds Without End: The Mission)"

Kerry Cohen Quotes

"I begin to learn there are certain things I shouldnt tell her. Like when we meet boys at Dorrians and I give mine a blow job, or the time I messed around with a boy in the back near the bathrooms. Amy wants to be intimate with boys too, but to her this kind of conduct is slutty. I suppose it is. She, like most girls, including the Jennifers, has a different relationship to boys than I do. She engages in sexual acts with them if she wants, but from my vantage point it looks like she can take them or leave them if they are not just right. She considers whether she actually likes someone before she jumps into bed with him. She isnt wracked with anxiety when there arent any boys around. And she doesnt need them to live, which is what it feels like for me."

Marat Safin Quotes

"If I was the type of person who had tennis, tennis, tennis all the time and I went to bed and ended up dreaming about tennis, I would go nuts."

Nina Bawden Quotes

"I dislike the word victim. I dislike being told that I lost my husband - as if I had idly abandoned you by the side of the railway track like an unwanted pair of old shoes."

Quotes About Drunken Nights

"A gaggle of sophomore girls wavered by in their heels, en route from Bartlebys to some house party. No two of their tube tops or flouncy miniskirts were precisely alike, in cut or in color, and these slight variations made the outfits look all the more carefully orchestrated as they linked arms and passed by, pretending not to listen. Schwartz tried to comfort himself with a long look at their ten slender thighs turned pink by the cold, the good odds hed been between four or six of those thighs on oblivious drunken nights, but it was useless, the girls looked absurd to him now, and it no longer seemed that the universe contained an endless supply of anonymous pink thighs to which he could escape from his troubles. Pella would never dress like that." - Author: Chad Harbach

Quotes About Office Space

"How could you live somewhere so icy cold and imposing, so clearly in conflict with the rest of the city, the rest of the human population, and stay in love? As far as I can tell, love takes place in townhouses and cozy cottages and cramped studio apartments and rundown guest houses. This place might as well be an office building or a spaceship." - Author: Corey Ann Haydu

Quotes About Decebel

"Have you wondered what our babies would have looked like?" Jen asked absently as she frowned inwardly trying to picture the future she might have had with her wolf."Baby this isnt really the time to discuss our babies. Lets focus on who is carrying you so that I can get you back so that we can make babies."Jen groaned and felt the arms around her tighten which brought a gasp from her. Decebel must have sensed her pain as she felt his worry."Im okay, just hurts." Jen actually felt a smile spread across her face, "So you want to make babies with me?"This time when Decebel laughed she swore she could feel his hands run down her sides to her waist."Only you would want to discuss making babies at a time like this.""Well you have to admit that its a better topic than my nearly being killed and now being kidnapped. Seriously Dec, Id much rather think about us making babies." - Author: Quinn Loftis

Quotes About Tacit Knowledge

"Resolved, to study the Scriptures so steadily, constantly and frequently, as that I may find, and plainly perceive myself to grow in the knowledge of the same." - Author: Jonathan Edwards

Quotes About Modern Gadgets

"It is always difficult to make the transition to a modern world. I moved from the world of faith to the world of reason - from the world of excision and forced marriage to the world of secual emancipation. Having made that journey, I know that one of those worlds is simply better than the other. Not because of its flashy gadgets, but fundamentally, because of its values. The message of this book, if it must have a message, is that we in the West would be wrong to prolong the pain of that transition unnecessarily, by elevating cultures full of bigotry and hatred toward women to the stature of respectable alternative ways of life." - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Quotes About Saddness

"True saddness is when someone still thinks your the same person after all these years. They brand you because of their own ego, fear and lack of spirituality. Whats sadder is when they are Christian." - Author: Shannon L. Alder

Quotes About Subliminal Relationships

"Among these temperamentally unhappy campers are "reactant" personalities, who focus on what they often wrongly perceive as others attempts to control them. In one experiment, some of these touchy individuals were asked to think of two people they knew: a bossy sort who advocated hard work and a mellow type who preached la dolce vita. Then, one of the names was flashed before the subjects too briefly to register in their conscious awareness. Next, the subjects were given a task to perform. Those who had been exposed to the hard-driving name performed markedly worse than those exposed to the easygoing name. Even this weak, subliminal attention to an emotional cue that suggested control was enough to get their reactant backs up and cause them to act to their own disadvantage. All relationships involve give-and-take and cooperation, so a person who habitually attends to ordinary requests or suggestions like a bull to a red flag is in for big trouble in both home and workplace." - Author: Winifred Gallagher

Quotes About Dressing Nicely

"Far as I knew, closest shed gotten to art was a drafting table and dressing mannequins in store windows, and the closest Id gotten to saving the world was my name on some petitions, for everything from recycling aluminum cans to saving the whales. I put my cans in the trash now, and I didnt know how the whales were doing." - Author: Joe R. Lansdale

Quotes About Proust Death

"What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? (Just to give you an idea, Prousts reply was To be separated from Mama.) I think that the lowest depth of misery ought to be distinguished from the highest pitch of anguish. In the lower depths come enforced idleness, sexual boredom, and/or impotence. At the highest pitch, the death of a friend or even the fear of the death of a child." - Author: Christopher Hitchens
