James Bowman Quotes

"A great many grown-up and intelligent people believe, or pretend to believe, that by behaving in a friendly and accommodating way to our attackers, we will show them that they have nothing to fear from us and so defuse their wrath. The idea that such behavior would be taken by a ruthless and implacable enemy only as a sign of weakness is as foreign to them as the idea of honor itself."

Josh Weil Quotes

"All was still: dark crawlers with their frozen treads, bulldozers motionless as boulders, backhoes with bent necks and sleeping hearts and shove-mouth jaws pillowed on gravel. And tractors. An antique Case Model DEX in signature flambeau red, last years twenty-foot-tall New Holland TV140 gleaming like a groomed thoroughbred, Minneapolis-Molines and John Deeres and Steigers and Fords and still, among them all, nothing quite like the Deutz."

Antoine De Rivarol Quotes

"Ima ljudi koji od svog bogatstva nemaju ništa osim straha da ga ne izgube."

Quotes About Nobel Prize Winners

"They were both going to the big country where there were more psychiatrists than anywhere else in the world. We could just as well say more swimming pools, more Nobel prizewinners, more strategic bombers, more apple pies, more computers, more natural parks, more libraries, more cheerleaders, more serial killers, more newspapers, more raccoons, many of many more things, because it was the country of More. No doubt because the people who lived there had left their own countries precisely because they wanted more, especially more freedom."

Quotes About Pesky

Quotes About Loving Fiercely

"I saw these passionate people reel about and drift haphazardly as if driven by a storm, the man filled with desire today, satiated on the morrow, loving fiercely and discarding brutally, sure of no affection and happy in no love; then there were the women who were drawn to him, suffering insults and beatings, finally rejected and yet still clinging to him, degraded by jealousy and despised love, but still remaining faithful." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Changes At Work

"I think as the world changes, we have to keep up. We have to note what is happening, and I think writing has always had a powerful corrective influence and possibility. We have to write about whats good, and we also have to write about parts of our culture that are not good, that are not working out. I think it takes a new eye." - Author: Lee Smith

Quotes About Sudden Love

"New York may end up being no more than a scrim, a spectral film that is none other than our craving for romance—romance with life, with masonry, with memory, sometimes romance with nothing at all. This longing goes out to the city and from the city comes back to us. Call it narcissism. Or call it passion. It has its flare-ups, its cold nights, its sudden lurches, and its embraces. It is our life finally revealed to us in the most lifeless hard objects well ever cast eyes on: concrete, steel, stonework. Our need for intimacy and love is so powerful that well look for them and find them in asphalt and soot." - Author: André Aciman

Quotes About 1960s

"The Jetsons had them in the 1960s. They were the defining element of Knight Rider in the 1980s: cars that drive themselves. Self-driving cars appear in countless science fiction movies. By Hollywood standards, they are so normal we dont even notice them. But in real life, they still dont exist. What if you could buy one today?" - Author: Sebastian Thrun

Quotes About Fighter

"Fight Master is a proving ground for young, aspiring fighters who want a chance to play on a bigger stage. Thats something it has in common with The Ultimate Fighter, which has always been like a farm league for the UFC, a place to develop new talent." - Author: Randy Couture
