Michael Denton Quotes

"To grasp the reality of life as it has been revealed by molecular biology, we must magnify a cell a thousand million times until it is twenty kilometers in diameter and resembles a giant airship large enough to cover a great city like London or New York. What we would then see would be an object of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design. On the surface of the cell we would see millions of openings, like the port holes of a vast space ship, opening and closing to allow a continual stream of materials to flow in and out. If we were to enter one of these openings we would find ourselves in a world of supreme technology and bewildering complexity."

Sherwin B Nuland Quotes

"That enormously complex biological interactions are so flawlessly coordinated as to result in such obvious manifestations as human thought or the electrical activity that dries the heartbeat is as exciting to me -- actually more exciting -- than such phenomena were when I was a small boy and thought them divinely (in the supernatural sense) driven."

Quotes About Stefan Katherine

"You always were selfish. Your one fault. Not willing to share anything, are you?" Suddenly, Damons lips curved up in a singularly beautiful smile. But fortunately the lovely Elena is more generous. Didnt she tell you about our little liaisons? Why? The first time we met she almost gave herself to me on the spot.""Thats a lie!""Oh, no, dear brother, I never lie about anything important. Or do I mean unimportant? Anyway, your beauteous damsel nearly swooned into my arms. I think she likes men in black." As Stefan stared at him, trying to control his breathing, Damon added, almost gently, "Youre wrong about her, you know, You think shes sweet and docile like Katherine. She isnt. Shes not your type at all, my saintly brother. She has a spirit and a fire in her that you wouldnt know what to do with.""And you would, I suppose."Damon uncrossed his arms and slowly smiled again. "Oh, yes." - Author: L.J. Smith

Quotes About Your Inner Demons

"I do think your brother grows more peculiar every day, I complain to Edward when he comes to my rooms in Whitehall Palace to escort me to dinner.Which one? he asks lazily. For you know I can do nothing right in the eyes of either. You would think they would be glad to have a York on the throne and peace in Christendom, and one of the finest Christmas feasts we have ever arranged; but no: Richard is leaving court to go back north as soon as the feast is over, to demonstrate his outrage that we are not slogging away in a battle with the French, and George is simply bad tempered." - Author: Philippa Gregory

Quotes About Bram

"O gato de Schröndinger é preso numa caixa com um mecanismo de morte acionado por um evento de mecânica quântica. Antes de abrirmos a tampa da caixa, não sabemos se o gato está vivo ou morto. O bom senso diz que, de qualquer jeito , o gato tem de estar ou vivo ou morto dentro da caixa. A interpretação de Copenhague contradiz o bom senso: tudo que existe antes de abrirmos a caixa é uma probabilidade. Assim que abrimos a caixa, a função de onda colapsa e ficamos com um evento isolado: o gato está morto ou o gato está vivo. Até que abramos a caixa, ele não estava nem morto nem vivo." - Author: Richard Dawkins

But I want to stay here." - Author: John Ashbery

Quotes About Fun Times In Life

"Its a fact...that in societies like ours sex truly represents a second system of differentiation, completely independent of money; and as a system of differentiation it functions just as mercilessly. The effects of these two systems are, furthermore, strictly equivalent. Just like unrestrained economic liberalism, and for similar reasons, sexual liberalism produces phenomena of absolute pauperization . Some men make love every day; others five or six times in their life, or never. Some make love with dozens of women; others with none. Its whats known as the law of the market...Economic liberalism is an extension of the domain of the struggle, its extension to all ages and all classes of society. Sexual liberalism is likewise an extension of the domain of the struggle, its extension to all ages and all classes of society." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

Quotes About Lighting The Lamp

"A: Absorbed in our discussion of immortality, we had let night fall without lighting the lamp, and we couldnt see each others faces. With an offhandedness or gentleness more convincing than passion would have been, Macedonio Fernandez voice said once more that the soul is immortal. He assured me that the death of the body is altogether insignificant, and that dying has to be the most unimportant thing that can happen to a man. I was playing with Macedonios pocketknife, opening and closing it. A nearby accordion was infinitely dispatching La Comparsita, that dismaying trifle that so many people like because its been misrepresented to them as being old... I suggested to Macedonio that we kill ourselves, so we might have our discussion without all that racket. Z: (mockingly) But I suspect that at the last moment you reconsidered. A: (now deep in mysticism) Quite frankly, I dont remember whether we committed suicide that night or not." - Author: Jorge Luis Borges

Quotes About Aids Epidemic

"What a horrible feeling that is, to know that if the disease [AIDS] had primarily affected PTA presidents, or priests, or white teenage girls, the epidemic would have been ended years earlier, and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved." - Author: David Levithan
