"It is what we know already that often prevents us from learning."

Alexandra Katehakis Quotes

"To develop emotional and erotic intelligence we need to practice enlarging our inner passion at every moment. It doesnt matter whats going on in our world, or even how we feel about ourselves in the moment. In fact, the best time to accomplishing something may be when we least feel like trying, because the hopeless part of ourselves most needs the light."

Edward Bach Quotes

"The main reason for the failure of the modern medical science is that it is dealing with results and not causes. Nothing more than the patching up of those attacked and the burying of those who are slain, without a thought being given to the real strong hold."

Hermione Jean Granger Weasley Quotes

"im going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed or worse expelled"

Don Paterson Quotes

"A poetic form is essentially a codified pattern of silence. We have a little silence at the end of a line, a bigger one at the end of a stanza, and a huge one at the end of the poem. The semantic weight of the poem tends to naturally distribute itself according to that pattern of silence, paying especial care to the sounds and meanings of the words and phrases that resonate into the little empty acoustic of the line-ending, or the connecting hallway of stanza-break, or the big church of the poems end."

Naomi Klein Quotes

"It is eminently possible to have a market-based economy that requires no such brutality and demands no such ideological purity. A free market in consumer products can coexist with free public health care, with public schools, with a large segment of the economy -- like a national oil company -- held in state hands. Its equally possible to require corporations to pay decent wages, to respect the right of workers to form unions, and for governments to tax and redistribute wealth so that the sharp inequalities that mark the corporatist state are reduced. Markets need not be fundamentalist."

"When hes late for dinner, I know hes either having an affair or is lying dead in the street. I always hope its the street."

Phillip Done Quotes

"The main reason I became a teacher is that I like being the first one to introduce kids to words and music and people and numbers and concepts and idea that they have never heard about or thought about before. I like being the first one to tell them about Long John Silver and negative numbers and Beethoven and alliteration and "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" and similes and right angles and Ebenezer Scrooge. . . Just think about what you know today. You read. You write. You work with numbers. You solve problems. We take all these things for granted. But of course you havent always read. You havent always known how to write. You werent born knowing how to subtract 199 from 600. Someone showed you. There was a moment when you moved from not knowing to knowing, from not understanding to understanding. Thats why I became a teacher."

Edward Livingston Quotes

"It means that through knowledge have come responsibility and hope, and through both, action."

Quotes About Charlie And Sam

"For one brief, never-ending second, an entirely different path expanded behind the lids of my tear-wet eyes. As if I were looking through the filter of Jacobs thoughts, I could see exactly what I was going to give up, exactly what this new self-knowledge would not save me from losing. I could see Charlie and Renée mixed into a strange collage with Billy and Sam and La Push. I could see years passing, and meaning something as they passed, changing me. I could see the enormous red-brown wolf that I loved, always standing as protector if I needed him. For the tiniest fragment of a second, I saw the bobbing heads of two small, black-haired children, running away from me into the familiar forest. When they disappeared, they took the rest of the vision with them." - Author: Stephenie Meyer

Quotes About Performing Poetry

"Mr. ODonnell was at the library counter, performing the sort of grim rituals librarians perform with index cards and stumpy pencils and those rubber stamps with columns of rotating numbers. "Ms. Auerbach! What will it be today? Camus? Cervantes?" "Actually Im looking for a book of poetry by Emily Dickinson"He paused somberly, toying with the twirled tip of his mustache. No matter how seriously librarians are engaged in their work, they are always glad to be interrupted when the theme is books. It makes no difference to them how simple the search is or how behind on time either of you might be running - they consider all queries scrupulously. They love to have their knowledge tested. They lie in wait, they will not be rushed." - Author: Hilary Thayer Hamann

Quotes About Ares God Of War

"O, the fierce wretchedness that glory brings us! Who would not wish to be from wealth exempt, Since riches point to misery and contempt? Who would be so mockd with glory? or to live But in a dream of friendship? To have his pomp and all what state compounds But only painted, like his varnishd friends? Poor honest lord, brought low by his own heart, Undone by goodness! Strange, unusual blood, When mans worst sin is, he does too much good! Who, then, dares to be half so kind again? For bounty, that makes gods, does still mar men. My dearest lord, blessd, to be most accursed, Rich, only to be wretched, thy great fortunes Are made thy chief afflictions. Alas, kind lord! Hes flung in rage from this ingrateful seat Of monstrous friends, nor has he with him to Supply his life, or that which can command it. Ill follow and inquire him out: Ill ever serve his mind with my best will; Whilst I have gold, Ill be his steward still." - Author: William Shakespeare

Coming back to your center, and approaching life from that center-to-line place...
