Quotes About Extras

"There you stand, lost in the infinite series of the sea, with nothing ruffled but the waves. The tranced ship indolently rolls; the drowsy trade winds blow; everything resolves you into languor. For the most part, in this tropic whaling life, a sublime uneventfulness invests you; you hear no news; read no gazettes; extras with startling accounts of commonplaces never delude you into unnecessary excitements; you hear of no domestic afflictions; bankrupt securities; fall of stocks; are never troubled with the thought of what you shall have for dinner - for all your meals for three years and more are snugly stowed in casks, and your bill of fare is immutable. (Moby Dick chap 35 p 153)" - Author: Herman Melville

Theres nothing between you and despair, and you dont seem a very desperate person. Too stupid. Youre not stupid. So why dont you ever put your head in the oven? I dont know. Theres always a new Nirvana album to look forward to, or something happening in NYPD Blue to make you want to watch the next episode. Exactly. Thats the point? NYPD Blue? Jesus. It was worse than he thought. No, no. The point is you keep going. You want to. So all the things that make you want to are the point. I dont know if you even realize it, but on the quiet you dont think lifes too bad. You love things. Telly. Music. Food." - Author: Nick Hornby

Quotes About Computer Teachers

"An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts, soul is neglected." - Author: Thomas Moore
