"There was a modeling agency in my little town where I got my start, but the opportunity came to work in Japan when I was fourteen. My mom went with me until I was seventeen. Her only stipulation was that I had to keep my schoolwork up. My mom was great. She is still my best friend."

Walter Houser Brattain Quotes

"I would like to start by emphasizing the importance of surfaces. It is at a surface where many of our most interesting and useful phenomena occur. We live for example on the surface of a planet. It is at a surface where the catalysis of chemical reactions occur. It is essentially at a surface of a plant that sunlight is converted to a sugar. In electronics, most if not all active circuit elements involve non-equilibrium phenomena occurring at surfaces. Much of biology is concerned with reactions at a surface."

Quotes About Daughter In Laws

"Scripture is wrought with a clear message of Jesus utter disregard for appearance and social rank. In Judean society, it was a major taboo for a man to even speak to a woman who was not his own wife or daughter; yet Jesus interacted regularly with foreign women, He taught women, ignored ritual impurity laws, and readily accepted women into His inner circle of followers." - Author: Matt Litton

Quotes About Military Readiness

"They were worried about keeping military families strong. They were worried about the stress and strain of prolonged military service and how it would affect our military readiness the next time a Hitler-wannabe reared his ugly head. As they made a list of pros and cons for sending families overseas, they never imagined that DOD schools would be the best possible solution to nearly every problem they could envision. The most unpredictable phenomena occurred. The DOD literally created a culture of kids whose life experiences were so rich, yet so different from where theyd come from, that as they grew in years the people they most related to, the people they most wanted to be around, were other military kids who had the same shared experience. Military kids became military members—and theyve kept us strong, our families, armed forces, our country, all of us." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Version

"This kind of renunciation, in fact, has often been the strength, born of necessity, of the worlds disinherited, of those who do not fit in with their surroundings or with their own body or with their own race or tradition and who hope, by means of renunciation, to assure for themselves a future world where, to use a Nietzschean expression, the inversion of all values will occur." - Author: Julius Evola

Quotes About Becoming A Young Woman

"When did you first feel like a grown woman and not a girl?" We wrote down our answers and shared them, first in pairs, then in larger groups. The group of women was racially and economically diverse, but the answers had a very similar theme. Almost everyone first realized they were becoming a grown woman when some dude did something nasty to them. "I was walking home from ballet and a guy in a car yelled, ‘Lick me!" "I was babysitting my younger cousins when a guy drove by and yelled, ‘Nice ass." There were pretty much zero examples like "I first knew I was a woman when my mother and father took me out to dinner to celebrate my success on the debate team." It was mostly men yelling shit from cars. Are they a patrol sent out to let girls know theyve crossed into puberty? If so, its working." - Author: Tina Fey

Quotes About Thinking At Night

"I thought of my father, alone and elsewhere, his head cradled in his hands. I thought of the day hed punched a hole straight through the kitchen wall, thinking shed be tucked away inside. All those places hed looked and never found. Inside their mattress. In stained-glass windows. How hed scoured the carpet for her stray hair and strung them all together with a ribbon; how hed slept with that one lock swathed across his nostrils, hugging a pillow fitted with a nightshirt. How hed dug up the backyard, stripped and sweating. How hed played her favorite album on repeat and loud, a lure. How when we took up the carpet in my bedroom to find her, under the carpet was wood. Under the wood there was cracked concrete. Under the concrete there was dirt. Under the dirt there was a cavity of water. I swam down into the water with my nose clenched and lungs burning in my chest but I could not find the bottom and I couldnt see a thing." - Author: Blake Butler
