"Its hard to look at it like that, isnt it? Because if you can be a better parent than the ones you had, you have to face the fact that your parents had that choice too. If youre not fated to be an awful parent, they werent either. And," I said feeling my throat tighten, "its easier to believe that were all just [f*d] than it is to know there are choices." I rubbed my hands together to try to get my fingers to warm up. "It hurts less to think they couldnt have done any better than they did, doesnt it?"

Liebig Quotes

"Liebig was not a teacher in the ordinary sense of the word. Scientifically productive himself in an unusual degree, and rich in chemical ideas, he imparted the latter to his advanced pupils, to be put by them to experimental proof; he thus brought his pupils gradually to think for themselves, besides showing and explaining to them the methods by which chemical problems might be solved experimentally."

Quotes About Rules And Love

"This too to remember. If a man writes clearly enough any one can see if he fakes. If he mystifies to avoid a straight statement, which is very different from breaking so-called rules of syntax or grammar to make an efffect which can be obtained in no other way, the writer takes a longer time to be known as a fake and other writers who are afflicted by the same necessity will praise him in their own defense. True mysticism should not be confused with incompetence in writing which seeks to mystify where there is no mystery but is really only the necessity to fake to cover lack of knowledge or the inability to state clearly. Mysticism implies a mystery and there are many mysteries; but incompetence is not one of them; nor is overwritten journalism made literature by the injection of a false epic qulaity. Remember this too: all bad writers are in love with the epic." - Author: Ernest Hemingway

"Yes, nitroglycerin," Simoun repeated slowly, with a frigid smile, staring at the glass flask with delight. "Its more than nitroglycerin, however.

Tonight those most dangerous of tyrants who have hidden behind God and the state, whose abuses remain unpunished because no one can take them to task. Tonight, the Philippines will hear an explosion that will convert into rubble the infamous monument whose rottenness I helped bring about." - Author: José Rizal
