Jennifer Steil Quotes

Steve Pemberton Quotes

"... a man could build whatever monuments he wanted in the worlds of politics, sports, entertainment, and business, but if they come at the expense of his children, then he has failed. Once the attention fades and the crowds stop cheering his name and his accomplishments are little more than fine print in a history book, the only thing that truly survives him is his child. That is his legacy. That is what defines him. All else is but a footnote."

Joe Mitchell Chapple Quotes

"To live well, to laugh often, to love much, to gain the respect of intelligent people, to win the love of little children. To fill ones niche and accomplish ones task, to leave the world better than one finds it whether by an improved flower, a perfect poem or another life ennobled. to never lack appreciation of earths beauty or fail to express it, to always look for the best in others, to give the best one has. To make ones life an inspiration and ones memory a benediction. This is success."

Thomas Henry Huxley Quotes

I touched the wet little drops and held them toward her. See, Im not a robot. This is proof."

Quotes About My Crew

"The fan was spinning and as the shadows passed over the white ceiling I let my eyes unfocus until all of it looked like a universe being born or a planet unraveling, some creation or catastrophe depending on which way gravity was going and where you were standing. So instead of Elizabeth Taylor I thought about stars and how little I knew about them, and how if I was an explorer and I had to sail a boat across the ocean without rador or an electronic compass Id be screwed because the only constellations I knew were the Big Dipper and Little Dipper and I always got them confused. And even though I knew Id never have to sail that boat I still wished I knew more about stars and other things. And I wished I could remember lying in the back yard as a kid with my hands locked behind my head, looking up at the night sky and dreaming. But I couldnt, because it wasnt something I ever did. It would have been a nice memory though" - Author: Paul Neilan

Quotes About Our Forests

"I made these sonnets out of wood; I gave them the sound of that opaque pure substance, and that is how they should reach your ears. Walking in forests or on beaches, along hidden lakes, in latitudes sprinkled with ashes, you and I have picked up pieces of pure bark, pieces of wood subject to the comings and goings of water and the weather. Out of such softened relics, then, with hatchet and machete and pocketknife, I built up these lumber piles of love, and with fourteen boards each I built little houses, so that your eyes, which I adore and sing to, might live in them. Now that I have declared the foundations of my love, I surrender this century to you: wooden sonnets that rise only because you gave them life." - Author: Pablo Neruda

Quotes About Variance

"The Soviets were not 50% right, they were entirely wrong. They werentquantitatively wrong about the amount of variance due to the environment,they were qualitatively wrong about what environmental manipulationscould do in the face of built-in universal human machinery. Having said this,though, I now feel no particular impulse to vote Republican.Also, its quite possible that someday you could create perfectly unselfishpeople… if you used sufficiently advanced neurosurgery, drugs, and/orbrain-computer interfaces to engineer their brains into a new state that nocurrent human brain occupies. Whether or not this is in fact possible isntsomething that ideology gets to decide. The reasoning errors of pastcommunists cant prohibit any particular future technological advance frombeing possible or practical. Having said that, I feel no particular impulse toturn "liberal." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Quotes About Felicidad

"O amor é a concordância da necessidade com o sentimento, e a felicidade no casamento resulta de um entendimento perfeito das almas entre os esposos Disso decorre que, para ser feliz, um homem é obrigado a respeitar certas regras de honra e da delicadeza. Depois de se ter valido da lei social que consagra a necessidade, deve obedecer às leis secretas da natureza que fazem eclodir os sentimentos. Se coloca a sua felicidade em ser amado, é preciso que ame sinceramente: nada resiste a uma paixão verdadeira. Mas ser apaixonado é desejar sempre. Pode-se desejar sempre a própria mulher? Sim.b" - Author: Honoré de Balzac
