#4. Breathing in Shepelevo was like hitting the right note on the piano. There was only one note. When I was young, Shepelevo was the smell of nettles, of salted smoked fish, of fresh water from the Gulf of Finland, and of burning firewood, all wrapped up in one Shepelevo. #Quote by Paullina Simons

Aph Finland quotes by Tom Of Finland
#8. I know my little 'dirty drawings' are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if - I would like to say 'when,' but I better say 'if' - our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms. #Quote by Tom Of Finland

Aph Finland quotes by Erika Christakis
#13. Do preschoolers need all the trappings of elementary school . . . ? The faux academic overstimulation? The enforced choices? The cult-like obsession with readiness? I would say, mostly, they do not. And I think some of these trappings, such as the notorious print-rich environments we encountered with their busy totems to industriousness, can actually interfere with the task of becoming a good communicator and a literate person. We spend a lot of energy on creating print-rich environments but that's not at all the same thing as creating a language-rich environment.

Consider again the hope that Finland offers; its guidelines for preprimary (preschool) education remind us that:

"The basis for emerging literacy is that children have heard and listened, they have been heard, they have spoken and been spoken to, people have discussed things with them, and they have asked questions and received answers."

For our young children, what else is there to wish for? #Quote by Erika Christakis
Aph Finland quotes by Paul Ryan
#14. Was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on electric cars in Finland, or on windmills in China? Was it a good idea to borrow all this money from countries like China and spend it on all these various different interest groups? #Quote by Paul Ryan
Aph Finland quotes by Noam Chomsky
#15. The country that consistently ranks among the highest in educational achievement is Finland. A rich country, but education is free. Germany, education is free. France, education is free. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Aph Finland quotes by Tarja Moles
#16. Free education, almost free healthcare, a generous benefits system and a better state pension than elsewhere, guarantee equal opportunities for all citizens. The only problem is that all these require a considerable amount of public revenue. This is why the common assertion that to be born in Finland is like winning the jackpot in the lottery is only applicable when you are at the receiving end. A far more common experience is that you need to win the lottery just to cover the tax bill. #Quote by Tarja Moles
Aph Finland quotes by Anonymous
#17. In some countries - Finland and Singapore and South Korea, for instance - future schoolteachers are recruited from the best college-bound students, whereas a teacher in the United States is more likely to come from the bottom half of her class. #Quote by Anonymous
Aph Finland quotes by Renny Harlin
#18. I loved movies and went to see every movie I could in Finland. #Quote by Renny Harlin
Aph Finland quotes by Tom Of Finland
#19. The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don't want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual. #Quote by Tom Of Finland
Aph Finland quotes by Adam Anderson
#20. 10) Donald Duck cartoons were banned in Finland because he doesn't wear any pants #Quote by Adam Anderson
Aph Finland quotes by Derek B. Miller
#21. There's also a possibility that the landlord is in there right now, wearing women's undergarments. Or a drug addict is inside stealing jewelry.Or a boatload of recent Chinese immigrants without a television watching Russia play Finland in hockey and placing bets over beer.
You have no idea what's behind that door. You can't just pick the options within your field of vision. Reality comes from everywhere. At best, you can narrow down the likelihoods. But in the end, it's not a matter of deduction. It's a matter of fact. One bullet will kill you if you're stupid or unlucky. So at least don't be stupid #Quote by Derek B. Miller
Aph Finland quotes by Anita B. Sulser PhD
#22. Islam will aim to establish itself as the majority in France, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Any country, in which they successfully establish themselves will serve as their primary base for the invasion of neighbouring countries (such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, Hungary and the Mediterranean) #Quote by Anita B. Sulser PhD
Aph Finland quotes by Trip Hawkins
#23. Digital Chocolate has 60% of its developers in Finland where the sun never sets in the summer and there is nothing to do outside in the winter, so we are very productive! #Quote by Trip Hawkins
Aph Finland quotes by Esa-Pekka Salonen
#24. You know, in some ways conducting is counter-intuitive. It's like winter driving in Finland - if you skid, the natural reaction is to fight with the wheel and jam on the brakes, which is the quickest way to get killed. What you have to do is let go, and the car will right itself. It's the same when an orchestra loses its ensemble. You have to resist the temptation to semaphore, and let the orchestra find its own way back to the pulse. #Quote by Esa-Pekka Salonen
Aph Finland quotes by Phil Schwarzmann
#25. PPROBLEM: You "forget" to take off your shoes in the house.

SOLUTION: There's no solution to this. She'll divorce you if you don't take off your shoes. #Quote by Phil Schwarzmann
Aph Finland quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#26. A Russian should rejoice if Poland, the Baltic Provinces, Finland, Armenia, should be separated, freed from Russia; so with an Englishman in regard to Ireland, India and other possessions; and each should help to do this, because the greater the state, the more wrong and cruel is its patriotism, and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded. Therefore, if we really wish to be what we profess to be, we must not only cease our present desire for the growth of the state, but we must desire its decrease, its weakening, and help this forward with all our might. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Aph Finland quotes by Kevin D. Mitnick
#27. Every time some [developer] says, 'Nobody will go to the trouble of doing that,' there's some kid in Finland who will go to the trouble. #Quote by Kevin D. Mitnick

Aph Finland quotes by Christopher Titus
#30. The United States ranks 14th in the world in education. Even if we subtract Sarah Palin's test scores, it only bumps us to third. Damn you, Finland! #Quote by Christopher Titus
Aph Finland quotes by Michelle Paver
#31. To experience the northern forest in the raw, I went to northern Finland and Lapland, travelling on horseback, and sleeping on reindeer skins in the traditional open-fronted Finnish laavu. I ate elk heart, reindeer and lingonberries, and tried out spruce resin: the chewing gum of the Stone Age. #Quote by Michelle Paver
Aph Finland quotes by Kaija Saariaho
#32. When you travel from your own country to another country for a long period, you do become aware of the differences. For example, verbal expression is much more important in France - in Finland people don't speak so much. Also, Finnish people say things directly; that kind of direct honesty would be very impolite in France. #Quote by Kaija Saariaho
Aph Finland quotes by Renny Harlin
#33. I did some film reviews for small papers in Finland and things like that to be able to keep living here. #Quote by Renny Harlin
Aph Finland quotes by Harri Holkeri
#34. Finland had a civil war less than 100 years ago, just like in Ireland. If you look at the history of newly independent nations, civil war is almost every time present, even in the United States. #Quote by Harri Holkeri
Aph Finland quotes by Nico Rosberg
#35. People in Finland have also adopted me because of my dad, and that's great, but it's the one language I can't speak. #Quote by Nico Rosberg
Aph Finland quotes by Ben Goldacre
#36. Two large trials of antioxidants were set up after Peto's paper (which rather gives the lie to nutritionists' claims that vitamins are never studied because they cannot be patented: in fact there have been a great many such trials, although the food supplement industry, estimated by one report to be worth over $50 billion globally, rarely deigns to fund them). One was in Finland, where 30,000 participants at high risk of lung cancer were recruited, and randomised to receive either ß-carotene, vitamin E, or both, or neither. Not only were there more lung cancers among the people receiving the supposedly protective ß-carotene supplements, compared with placebo, but this vitamin group also had more deaths overall, from both lung cancer and heart disease. The results of the other trial were almost worse. It was called the 'Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial', or 'CARET', in honour of the high p-carotene content of carrots. It's interesting to note, while we're here, that carrots were the source of one of the great disinformation coups of World War II, when the Germans couldn't understand how our pilots could see their planes coming from huge distances, even in the dark. To stop them trying to work out if we'd invented anything clever like radar (which we had), the British instead started an elaborate and entirely made-up nutritionist rumour. Carotenes in carrots, they explained, are transported to the eye and converted to retinal, which is the molecule that detects light in the #Quote by Ben Goldacre
Aph Finland quotes by Suzy Davies
#37. How insightful of Finland to devise a topic-based curriculum in their schools! This means that dicreet "subjects" that are taught may cross-fertilise each other, and the possibilities in this are amazing! #Quote by Suzy Davies
Aph Finland quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
#38. But why should you wish to leave a state of society which you so politely allow to be more felicitous than your own?" "Oh, Aph-Lin! My answer is plain. Lest in naught, and unwittingly, I should betray your hospitality; lest, in the caprice of will which in our world is proverbial among the other sex, and from which even a Gy is not free, your adorable daughter should deign to regard me, though a Tish, as if I were a civilised An, and - and - and - -" "Court you as her spouse," put in Aph-Lin, gravely, and without any visible sign of surprise or displeasure. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
Aph Finland quotes by Hidekaz Himaruya
#39. Don't worry, I can hander it! #Quote by Hidekaz Himaruya
Aph Finland quotes by Bernie Sanders
#40. In Finland, where 80 percent of workers belong to unions, all employees enjoy at least 30 days paid vacation, and the gap between the rich and poor is far more equitable than in the United States. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Aph Finland quotes by Paavo Nurmi
#41. I ran for myself, not Finland. #Quote by Paavo Nurmi
Aph Finland quotes by Tom Of Finland
#42. I almost never draw a completely naked man. He has to have at least a pair of boots or something on. To me, a fully dressed man is more erotic than a naked one. A naked man is, of course beautiful, but dress him in black leather or a uniform - ah, then he is more than beautiful, then he is sexy! #Quote by Tom Of Finland
Aph Finland quotes by Renny Harlin
#43. In Finland, getting a university degree is the first thing that you expect your kids to do. #Quote by Renny Harlin
Aph Finland quotes by Peter Singer
#44. Several countries - among them Austria, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel and Sweden - ban or severely restrict the use of wild animals in circuses. In Brazil, a movement to ban wild animals from circuses started after hungry lions managed to grab and devour a small boy. #Quote by Peter Singer
Aph Finland quotes by Frans De Waal
#45. Females avoid conflict. They are afraid of violence. The males, on the other hand, are less averse to strife. But once conflict breaks out, the males are much better at reconciling. In a study done in Finland, children who had quarreled were asked how much longer they intended to be angry at one another. The boys proudly said: "Oh, at least one or two days." The girls said "forever". #Quote by Frans De Waal
Aph Finland quotes by Hassan Blasim
#46. I live in a small country in Europe - Finland - and I don't speak English well and I had nothing to do with publishing houses in the West. I lived in complete isolation. #Quote by Hassan Blasim
Aph Finland quotes by Groucho Marx
#47. The trouble with writing a book about yourself is that you can't fool around. If you write about someone else, you can stretch the truth from here to Finland. If you write about yourself the slightest deviation makes you realize instantly that there may be honor among thieves, but you are just a dirty liar. #Quote by Groucho Marx
