[What We Get From This Adventure Is Just Sheer Joy. And Joy Is, After All, The End Of Life. We Do Not Live To Eat And Make Money.]

Quotes About Risk In Business

"I saw a moving sight the other morning before breakfast in a little hotel where I slept in the dusty fields. The young man of the house shot a little wolf called coyote in the early morning. The little heroic animal lay on the ground, with his big furry ears, and his clean white teeth, and his little cheerful body, but his little brave life was gone. It made me think how brave all living things are. Here little coyote was, without any clothes or house or books or anything, with nothing to pay his way with, and risking his life so cheerfully — and losing it — just to see if he could pick up a meal near the hotel. He was doing his coyote-business like a hero, and you must do your boy-business, and I my man-business bravely, too, or else we wont be worth as much as a little coyote." - Author: William James

Quotes About Ekonomi

"Ketiadaan budaya ilmu bersepadu dalam tamadun hari ini telah mengakibatkan peluasan bencana kehilangan adab. Kebiadaban ini telah melahirkan banyak kerosakan dalam pemikiran dan akhlak manusia serta alam tabii. Dalam pemikiran dan akhlak, kejahilan atau kebebalan dan kemalasan intelektual dikaitkan (sebagai alasan) dengan pengkhususan; kedayusan moral disebut sebagai toleransi dan kesederhanaan; pembaziran dimaknakan dengan rekreasi atau mempertahankan kedudukan; korupsi akhlak dan ekonomi atau kedua-duanya sekali dimaafkan sebagai lumrah kehidupan moden; dan penjahanaman alam sekitar disebut sebagai harga tabii kemajuan." - Author: Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud

Quotes About Timeless Music

"The embrace of present and past time, in which English antiquarianism becomes a form of alchemy, engenders a strange timelessness. It is as if the little bird which flew through the Anglo-Saxon banqueting hall, in Bedes Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum, gained the outer air and became the lark ascending in Vaughan Williamss orchestral setting. The unbroken chain is that of English music itself." - Author: Peter Ackroyd

Quotes About Huxley

"There was no sense to life, to the structure of things. D.H. Lawrence had known that. You needed love, but not the kind of love most people used and were used up by. Old D.H. had known something. His buddy Huxley was just an intellectual fidget, but what a marvelous one. Better than G.B. Shaw with that hard keel of a mind always scraping bottom, his labored wit finally only a task, a burden on himself, preventing him from really feeling anything, his brilliant speech finally a bore, scraping the mind and the sensibilities. It was good to read them all though. It made you realize that thoughts and words could be fascinating, if finally useless." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Neat Writing

"When strangers on a train or a plane ask what I do for a living, I say, "I kill people." This response makes for a short conversation. No eye contact and no sudden movement from my seat-mate. Only peace and quiet. Rare is the fellow passenger who asks why I do it.I suppose I got tired hanging out in a book all day waiting for a story to begin. I write the kind of novels I want to read. And why the theme of solving murders? Violent death is larger than life and its the great equalizer. By law, every victim is entitled to a paladin and a chase, else life would be cheapened.And the real reason I do this? My brain is simply bent this way. There is nothing else I would rather do. This neatly chains into my theory of the writing life. If you scratch an artist, under the skin you will find a bum who cannot hold down a real job. Conversely, if you scratch a bum... but I have never done that.The heart of my theory has puritan roots: if you love what you do, you cannot call it honest work." - Author: Carol OConnell

Quotes About Nine Eleven

"In a sexual double standard as to who receives consumer protection, it seems that if what you do is done to women in the name of beauty, you may do what you like. It is illegal to claim that something grows hair, or makes you taller, or restores virility, if it does not. It is difficult to imagine that the baldness remedy Minoxidil would be on the market if it had killed nine French and at least eleven American men. In contrast, the long-term effects of Retin-A are still unknown--Dr. Stuart Yusps of the National Cancer Institute refers to its prescription as "a human experiment"--and the Food and Drug Administration has not approved it yet dermatologists are prescribing it to women at a revenue of over $150 million a year." - Author: Naomi Wolf
