Ronald Blythe Quotes

"Death used to announce itself in the thick of life but now people drag on so long it sometimes seems that we are reaching the stage when we may have to announce ourselves to death. It is as though one needs a special strength to die, and not a final weakness."

John H Carroll Quotes

"The flowers like me back."

Nick Webb Quotes

"long middle finger resembling a twig that it could use for probing for grubs. There is a telling example of convergent evolution when an unrelated species (the Long-Fingered Possum from Papua New Guinea) devised a similar strategy to address the same problem. (Douglas was very intrigued by the implications of convergence. What need is there to posit a designer if the operation of random forces, constrained by the reality of the world, produces the same elegant solution, as if there were no choice in the matter?) We monkeys have"

Pauline Clarke Quotes

"It did not seem odd to Max that what he had imagined about Stumps was really true, because this was exactly how games you made up worked. Of course they were true. In your mind."

JM Pierce Quotes

"When daylight is here i dream of the night,The stars of a country sky that shine so bright.A night sky without clouds, for the moon to hide under,Revealing every twinkle and every beam, of the Milky Ways wonder.I grow sad in the morning, And i pay the day no mind.Every time i see the light coming, I know the sunsets not far behind."

Miles Walser Quotes

"On my days off I leave my apartment explore the city or grab coffee with a friend. The grocery stores here dont make my hands sweat. I havent had the urge since I moved. I know who to call if Im feeling sad. No, I havent even thought of it. I hurt myself once in high school, but not since.I have enough money to make it. Im not nervous about moving. Yes, I ate dinner.I run five miles because I like it. I only hurt myself the one time in middle school, but thats it. No, sex never scares me.I can tell my mom anything. I dont really feel sad, I guess. I dont care. I dont need her. I never fight with my girlfriend.Yeah, I mustve been. It was kind of an accident. Everyone in seventh grade. Im friends with everyone.I know what that means. No, I didnt read that in a book. I like having two bedrooms cause I have lots of toys. Yes, I understand why Im here."

Damon Suede Quotes

John Agyekum Kufuor Quotes

"There has been enough suffering in our country, there has been enough of children whose dreams die before they have a chance to grow and there has been enough of our elders who, having served their nation, are forced into indignity in their old age."

Quotes About Beheading

"Her constant orders for beheading are shocking to those modern critics of childrens literature who feel that juvenile fiction should be free of all violence and especially violence with Freudian undertones. Even the Oz books of L. Frank Baum, so singularly free of the horrors to be found in Grimm and Andersen, contain many scenes of decapitation. As far as I know, there have been no empirical studies of how children react to such scenes and what harm if any is done to their psyche. My guess is that the normal child finds it all very amusing and is not damaged in the least, but that books like Alices Adventures in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz should not be allowed to circulate indiscriminately among adults who are undergoing analysis." - Author: Martin Gardner

Quotes About Dying From A Broken Heart

"In this brief transit where the dreams crossThe dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying(Bless me father) though I do not wish to wish these thingsFrom the wide window towards the granite shoreThe white sails still fly seaward, seaward flyingUnbroken wings And the lost heart stiffens and rejoicesIn the lost lilac and the lost sea voicesAnd the weak spirit quickens to rebelFor the bent golden-rod and the lost sea smellQuickens to recoverThe cry of quail and the whirling ploverAnd the blind eye createsThe empty forms between the ivory gatesAnd smell renews the salt savour of the sandy earth This is the time of tension between dying and birth The place of solitude where three dreams cross Between blue rocks But when the voices shaken from the yew-tree drift away Let the other yew be shaken and reply." - Author: T.S. Eliot

Quotes About Evolution Of Self

"Evolution has no foresight. Complex machinery develops its own agendas. Brains — cheat. Feedback loops evolve to promote stable heartbeats and then stumble upon the temptation of rhythm and music. The rush evoked by fractal imagery, the algorithms used for habitat selection, metastasize into art. Thrills that once had to be earned in increments of fitness can now be had from pointless introspection. Aesthetics rise unbidden from a trillion dopamine receptors, and the system moves beyond modeling the organism. It begins to model the very process of modeling. It consumes evermore computational resources, bogs itself down with endless recursion and irrelevant simulations. Like the parasitic DNA that accretes in every natural genome, it persists and proliferates and produces nothing but itself. Metaprocesses bloom like cancer, and awaken, and call themselves I." - Author: Peter Watts

Quotes About Olam

"Bu manasız ve yabancı hayatta bir tek şeye hakikaten sarılmış, hakikaten inanır gibi olmuştu. Bu da karısı idi. Muazzezin varlığı Yusuf için büyük, boşlukları dolduracak mahiyette bir şey değildi, fakat onun yokluğu müthişti. Onun bu kadar sebepsiz yere, bu kadar insafsızca Yusufun hayatından koparılması çıldırtacak kadar acı idi. Hayatında asıl aradığı şeyin Muazzez olmadığını biliyordu, fakat Muazzez olmadan bunu aramaya muktedir olamayacağını sanıyordu." - Author: Sabahattin Ali

Quotes About Skill

"Just think of the opportunities we can unlock by making education as addictive as a video game.
