Brain Surgery quotes by Sarah Wright
#1. Everyone also needs to realize that business is not rocket science. Everything that you haven't done before, you don't know it because you haven't done it before. It's not brain surgery and you figure it out as you do it. #Quote by Sarah Wright
Brain Surgery quotes by H.M. Forester
#2. All you had to do was crack up and beg to see the Governor; grovel at his feet and admit to being a dissident; heartily repent your sins, and volunteer for elective brain surgery. #Quote by H.M. Forester
Brain Surgery quotes by Carla Gugino
#3. The interesting thing with acting, actually, is that you get to be so many different people that you get to do so much research on so many different things that I've learned so much about brain surgery and about astrophysicist-type of things and traveling to amazing parts of the world. #Quote by Carla Gugino
Brain Surgery quotes by Linda Ellerbee
#4. It's not brain surgery. It's not nuclear physics. It's television. It's only television. #Quote by Linda Ellerbee
Brain Surgery quotes by Peter Watts
#5. I know, I know: it can be frustrating as hell. But people have an unfortunate habit of assuming they understand the reality just because they understood the analogy. You dumb down brain surgery enough for a preschooler to think he understands it, the little tyke's liable to grab a microwave scalpel and start cutting when no one's looking. #Quote by Peter Watts
Brain Surgery quotes by George Saunders
#6. So let me just say this. There are ways. You already know that because, in your life, there have been High Kindness periods and Low Kindness periods, and you know what inclined you toward the former and away from the latter. Education is good; immersing ourselves in a work of art: good; prayer is good; meditation's good; a frank talk with a dear friend; establishing ourselves in some kind of spiritual tradition - recognizing that there have been countless really smart people before us who have asked these same questions and left behind answers for us. It would be strange and self-defeating to fail to seek out these wise voices from the past
as self-defeating as it would be to attempt to rediscover the principles of physics from scratch or invent a new method of brain surgery without having learned the ones that already exist. #Quote by George Saunders
Brain Surgery quotes by Henry Marsh
#7. When push comes to shove we can afford to lose an arm or a leg, but I am operating on peoples thoughts and feelings... and if something goes wrong I can destroy that persons character... forever. #Quote by Henry Marsh
Brain Surgery quotes by Bill Maher
#8. New Rule: Now that liberals have taken back the word "liberal," they also have to take back the word "elite." By now you've heard the constant right-wing attacks on the "elite media," and the "liberal elite." Who may or may not be part of the "Washington elite." A subset of the "East Coast elite." Which is overly influenced by the "Hollywood elite." So basically, unless you're a shit-kicker from Kansas, you're with the terrorists. If you played a drinking game where you did a shot every time Rush Limbaugh attacked someone for being "elite," you'd be almost as wasted as Rush Limbaugh.

I don't get it: In other fields--outside of government--elite is a good thing, like an elite fighting force. Tiger Woods is an elite golfer. If I need brain surgery, I'd like an elite doctor. But in politics, elite is bad--the elite aren't down-to-earth and accessible like you and me and President Shit-for-Brains.

Which is fine, except that whenever there's a Bush administration scandal, it always traces back to some incompetent political hack appointment, and you think to yourself, "Where are they getting these screwups from?" Well, now we know: from Pat Robertson. I'm not kidding. Take Monica Goodling, who before she resigned last week because she's smack in the middle of the U.S. attorneys scandal, was the third-ranking official in the Justice Department of the United States. She's thirty-three, and though she never even worked as a prosecutor, was tasked with overseeing #Quote by Bill Maher
Brain Surgery quotes by Alan Furst
#9. Let me put it this way: I don't plan to retire. What would I do, become a brain surgeon? I mean, a brain surgeon can retire and write novels, but a novelist can't retire and do brain surgery - or at least he better not. #Quote by Alan Furst
Brain Surgery quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#10. When you're younger you've got a lot of ideas and you're probably more insecure. I work with young actors now and I see their insecurities, and I make them laugh because I know exactly what they're going through. When you get older you think, it's only a movie after all, it's not brain surgery. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Brain Surgery quotes by Pandora Poikilos
#11. Any fool can write, we start learning it at school at the age of three ... #Quote by Pandora Poikilos
Brain Surgery quotes by Christopher Willard
#12. What makes you think painting is any less difficult than brain surgery? #Quote by Christopher Willard
Brain Surgery quotes by Walter Murch
#13. I believe every editor should stand to edit. That's just my particular soapbox. Some things are so delicate and depend on such fine, delicate work. One frame in one direction or another can make such a difference and it is, in that, like brain surgery. #Quote by Walter Murch
Brain Surgery quotes by Lake Bell
#14. Filmmaking is a huge privilege; it's not brain surgery. It's art, and art is supposed to be an enjoyable process, and it is an enjoyable experience for me. #Quote by Lake Bell
Brain Surgery quotes by Sam Kean
#15. Brain surgery couldn't happen without the patient's own active voice to guide the work. The patient is part of the surgical team here, perhaps the most important part, and above all, that's what makes neurosurgery different. #Quote by Sam Kean
Brain Surgery quotes by Ben Bernanke
#16. One might as well try to perform brain surgery with a sledgehammer. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Brain Surgery quotes by Jerry G. West
#17. Size Matters. A lot.
How much you have and more importantly how much space it will take up in a movingtruck are the first things you need to know when planning a long distance move. Professional movers charge by weight because it is an easier and more uniform way to determine exactly how much you have. They literally drive the truck onto a large scale before loading your goods to get a light weight and return after loading your stuff to get a heavy weight, with the difference being the weight of your shipment. The moving company's estimate, however, is based on coming to your home and surveying the total cubic feet, or estimated size of all your household goods.
They then convert that figure into a weight estimate by multiplying the cubic feet (cubes) by the average density of 6.5 pounds per cubic foot. A small 2-bedroom house for example might have 1,000 cubic feet which when multiplied by a density of 6.5 (lbs) would equal 6,500 lbs. If this sounds like brain surgery then I would ask you to try and remember the last furniture mover you met who struck you as brain surgeon-ish. #Quote by Jerry G. West
Brain Surgery quotes by Joe McNally
#18. Unpredictability. Accidents. Not good when you're engaging in, say, brain surgery, but when lighting ... wonderful! #Quote by Joe McNally
Brain Surgery quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#19. I just want to sleep. The whole point of not talking about it, of silencing the memory, is to make it go away. It won't. I'll need brain surgery to cut it out of my head. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Brain Surgery quotes by Cindy Crawford
#20. Fashion and style is just that. Fashion and style. It's not brain surgery. #Quote by Cindy Crawford
Brain Surgery quotes by Carter Burwell
#21. If someone suddenly lost their director the day before shooting and wanted me to step in, I'd be willing to. But I'd do brain surgery the same way. I'm always up for something new. #Quote by Carter Burwell
Brain Surgery quotes by Rosanne Cash
#22. I couldn't listen to music with lyrics for the first few months after the brain surgery, because they were too complex and disturbing. So I listened to a lot of classical music. I didn't really want to read, either, so I listened to books on tape or watched movies. I also re-taught myself all of my childhood piano pieces. It helped me repair my brain. #Quote by Rosanne Cash
Brain Surgery quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#23. Self-criticism, like self-administered brain surgery, is perhaps not a good idea. Can the 'self' see the 'self' with any objectivity? #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Brain Surgery quotes by Lisa Rinna
#24. So long as I get some sleep and get to take care of myself and eat healthy and that sort of thing, I'm OK. I'm not out there digging ditches and it's not brain surgery. #Quote by Lisa Rinna
Brain Surgery quotes by Katie MacAlister
#25. Honestly, it's like trying to discuss brain surgery with tapioca. #Quote by Katie MacAlister
Brain Surgery quotes by Steve Carell
#26. People know where romantic comedies are going. It's not brain surgery to figure out the end of a romantic comedy. #Quote by Steve Carell
Brain Surgery quotes by John Powell
#27. There's the whole myth about rocket science. It's really not that hard. It's not brain surgery. #Quote by John Powell
Brain Surgery quotes by Philip Yancey
#28. There's a cardinal rule in book publishing that applies equally to brain surgery and auto mechanics: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Since people are still buying the original Where Is God When It Hurts? #Quote by Philip Yancey
Brain Surgery quotes by Hans Y. Tammemagi
#29. It is hardly surprising that the malodorous field of garbology has not attained the popularity of rocket science, oil exploration, or brain surgery. #Quote by Hans Y. Tammemagi
Brain Surgery quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#30. Acting's entertainment. It's not brain surgery. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Brain Surgery quotes by Mindy Kaling
#31. If you're Natalie Dormer, you can take big fashion risks and shave half your head, and it looks good. If you're a normal person and you try that, you just look like you had recent brain surgery. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Brain Surgery quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#32. If I wanted a circus ringmaster, I'd hire Trump. If I wanted advice on brain surgery or hospital management, I'd turn to Carson. Fiorina would make an articulate television pundit. But for president? #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Brain Surgery quotes by Harlan Ellison
#33. Everybody has a talent, whether it's scrapbooking, or kite-flying, or brain surgery, or writing, everybody has a talent. And if they discover it, and they turn it to their purposes and make a living out of it, then they become not "that person," but they become "that writer" or "that doctor" or "that supervisor." #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Brain Surgery quotes by Amy Rankin
#34. After the brain surgery, I started the hard process of recovery. #Quote by Amy Rankin
Brain Surgery quotes by Gloria Steinem
#35. What I've learned is that unless it's an emergency, like a fire or brain surgery, hierarchy is not necessary and may be damaging. If you have a hierarchy, you're repeating the strengths and weaknesses of one person without allowing for the accumulative strength of a group. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Brain Surgery quotes by Kage Baker
#36. It wasn't all that different from any particularly demanding boarding school, except that of course nobody ever went home for the holidays and we had a lot of brain surgery. #Quote by Kage Baker
Brain Surgery quotes by Robert Solow
#37. The fact that there is no such thing as a perfect anti-sepsis does not mean that one might as well do brain surgery in a sewer. #Quote by Robert Solow
Brain Surgery quotes by Tom T. Hall
#38. Young kids are doing the same thing I did, but they're doing it differently. They don't do brain surgery the way they used to do it either. #Quote by Tom T. Hall
Brain Surgery quotes by Bikram Choudhury
#39. You cannot drive the car if you do not have a driver's license. You cannot do brain surgery if you are not a brain surgeon. You cannot even do a massage if you don't have a license. #Quote by Bikram Choudhury
Brain Surgery quotes by Chila Woychik
#40. Split your skull - a hatchet works well enough. Take a more delicate instrument - a scalpel, perhaps - and make a hand-sized slit; it doesn't matter where. Reach in (no glove needed), plunge down to the very bottom, pinch the inside layer of membrane and yank, hard.
If it feels like you've just turned your brain inside out, you have. Writing is brain surgery, pure and simple. #Quote by Chila Woychik
Brain Surgery quotes by Henry Marsh,
#41. Who can - do, who can not - teach, who can not teach - teach teachers. #Quote by Henry Marsh, "Do No Harm: Stories Of Life, Death And Brain Surgery"
Brain Surgery quotes by Anthony Marra
#42. I wanted to be a writer, but at the time, I spent my days working a retail job, my nights sleeping in my childhood bedroom, and while I had written short stories here and there, I didn't know how to write good fiction anymore than I knew how to perform good brain surgery. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Brain Surgery quotes by Lance Armstrong
#43. The night before brain surgery, I thought about death. I searched out my larger values, and I asked myself, if I was going to die, did I want to do it fighting and clawing or in peaceful surrender? What sort of character did I hope to show? Was I content with myself and what I had done with my life so far? I decided that I was essentially a good person, although I could have been better--but at the same time I understood that the cancer didn't care.

I asked myself what I believed. I had never prayed a lot. I hoped hard, I wished hard, but I didn't pray. I had developed a certain distrust of organized religion growing up, but I felt I had the capacity to be a spiritual person, and to hold some fervent beliefs. Quite simply, I believed I had a responsibility to be a good person, and that meant fair, honest, hardworking, and honorable. If I did that, if I was good to my family, true to my friends, if I gave back to my community or to some cause, if I wasn't a liar, a cheat, or a thief, then I believed that should be enough. At the end of the day, if there was indeed some Body or presence standing there to judge me, I hoped I would be judged on whether I had lived a true life, not on whether I believed in a certain book, or whether I'd been baptized. If there was indeed a God at the end of my days, I hoped he didn't say, 'But you were never a Christian, so you're going the other way from heaven.' If so, I was going to reply, 'You know what? You're right. Fine.'
#Quote by Lance Armstrong
Brain Surgery quotes by Michio Kaku
#44. For them, the last option was to have brain surgery, which involved removing parts of the skull and exposing the brain. (Since the brain has no pain sensors, a person can be conscious during this entire procedure, so Dr. Penfield used only a local anesthetic during the operation.) #Quote by Michio Kaku
Brain Surgery quotes by M.T Anderson
#45. I was thinking of how sometimes, trying to say the right thing to people, it's like some kind of brain surgery... #Quote by M.T Anderson
Brain Surgery quotes by Colson Whitehead
#46. The boys could have been many things had they not been ruined by that place. Doctors who cured diseases or perform brain surgery, inventing shit that saves lives. Run for president. All those lost geniuses - sure not all of them were geniuses, Chickie Pete for example was not solving special relativity - but they had been denied even the simple pleasure of being ordinary. Hobbled and handicapped before the race even began, never figuring out how to be normal. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Brain Surgery quotes by Alexander Eliot
#47. So-called restoration is at least as tricky as brain surgery. Most pictures expire under scalpel and sponge. #Quote by Alexander Eliot
Brain Surgery quotes by Miranda Hart
#48. I'm not saying writing comedy's brain surgery, but there is a certain pressure to it. It's the equivalent of doing homework that's going to end up on national television. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Brain Surgery quotes by Joanne Greenberg
#49. Don't cut bangs with a hatchet. Don't do brain surgery with a pickax. #Quote by Joanne Greenberg
Brain Surgery quotes by Rosanne Cash
#50. I was angry at my parents when I had to have brain surgery, that they weren't still around, because no matter how old you are you want you parents when you're going through something like that. #Quote by Rosanne Cash
Brain Surgery quotes by M T Anderson
#51. I wanted to say something to cheer her up. I had a feeling that cheering her up might be a lot of work. I was thinking of how sometimes, trying to say the right thing to people, it's like some kind of brain surgery, and you have to tweak exactly the right part of the lobe. Except with talking, it's more like brain surgery with old, rusted skewers and things, maybe like those things you use to eat lobster, but brown. And you have to get exactly the right place, and you're touching around in the brain but the patient, she keeps jumping and saying, Ow. #Quote by M T Anderson
Brain Surgery quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#52. I spot a little stranger standing across the room, my brain takes a vacation just to give my heart more room. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Brain Surgery quotes by V.S. Ramachandran
#53. The human brain, it has been said, is the most complexly organised structure in the universe and to appreciate this you just have to look at some numbers. The brain is made up of one hundred billion nerve cells or "neurons" which is the basic structural and functional units of the nervous system. Each neuron makes something like a thousand to ten thousand contacts with other neurons and these points of contact are called synapses where exchange of information occurs. And based on this information, someone has calculated that the number of possible permutations and combinations of brain activity, in other words the numbers of brain states, exceeds the number of elementary particles in the known universe. #Quote by V.S. Ramachandran
Brain Surgery quotes by Steve Pavlina
#54. When you go to bed whenever and allow yourself to get up whenever, you reward your brain for continued laziness and inefficiency. #Quote by Steve Pavlina
Brain Surgery quotes by Bernard Beckett
#55. Just listening to you makes my back hurt. Why do you think that is?"
"Your body is trying to distract your brain from things it doesn't want to hear. That's the problem with machines built by chance. Once a design flaw has become entrenched, it's so difficult to correct it. #Quote by Bernard Beckett
Brain Surgery quotes by John Dryden
#56. Dreams are but interludes that fancy makes ...
Sometimes forgotten things, long cast behind
Rush forward in the brain, and come to mind. #Quote by John Dryden
Brain Surgery quotes by Joe Navarro
#57. Because the neocortex (the thinking brain) is capable of dishonesty, it is not a good source of reliable or accurate information (Ost, 2006, 259 #Quote by Joe Navarro
Brain Surgery quotes by J.K. Rowling
#58. Longbottom, if brains were gold, you'd be poorer than Weasley, and that's saying something. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Brain Surgery quotes by Colin Cotterill
#59. The woman's brain has two hemispheres," she slurred. "One for loving, one for hating. They can operate quite competently at the same time. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Brain Surgery quotes by Abdi Nazemian
#60. And I wish she knew that her ability to even utter all these doubts out loud means she thinks highly enough of herself to respect the emotions inside her. I would never let my doubts leave the prison of my brain. #Quote by Abdi Nazemian
Brain Surgery quotes by William Faulkner
#61. Eating the business of eating inside of you space too space and time confused Stomach saying noon brain saying eat oclock #Quote by William Faulkner
Brain Surgery quotes by Tyler Hamilton
#62. We got through it. Haven made excuses for me to friends, and made an appointment with a terrific doctor, who put me on Effexor, 150 milligrams a day, enough to get my brain straightened out. #Quote by Tyler Hamilton
Brain Surgery quotes by Robert Fulghum
#63. In that moment of educational ennui, a freshman girl says, "I can bring a human brain to school if you want–my father has lots of them." (Talk about a full-scale class alert: "She's going to do WHAT?!") #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Brain Surgery quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#64. The reality is, we don't know the reality. Our brains are not equipped with the biological tools to have a proper understanding of reality whatsoever. We only have a taste of it through the virtual reality that our brain creates to make us live through space and time for an insignificant duration. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Brain Surgery quotes by John Eccles
#65. I decided, as a medical student, to devote myself to a study of the brain. #Quote by John Eccles
Brain Surgery quotes by J.K. Rowling
#66. Why had he never appreciated the miracle that he was, brain and nerve and bounding heart? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Brain Surgery quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#67. They said I had to get fatter.
I told them my goal was 080.00 and if they wanted my respect, they'd better stop lying to me.
When my brain started working again, I checked their math. Someone had made a mistake because they didn't figure in the snakes in my head and the thick shadows hiding inside the cage of my ribs. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Brain Surgery quotes by Michelle Tea
#68. Coming of queer age in the 1990s, to love queers was to love damage. To love damage was a path to loving yourself. ...Queers do not come out of the minefield of homophobia without scars. We do not live through out families' rejection of us, our stunted life options, the violence we've faced, the ways in which we've violated ourselves for survival, our harmful coping mechanisms, our lifesaving delusions, the altered brain chemistry we have sustained as a result of this, the low income and survival states we've endured as a result of society's loathing, unharmed. Whatever of theses wounds I didn't experience firsthand, my lovers did, and so I say that, for a time, it was not possible to have queer love that was not ins some way damaged or defined by damage sustained, even as it desperately fought through that damage to access, hopefully, increasingly frequent moments of sustaining, lifesaving love, true love, and loyalty, and electric sex. #Quote by Michelle Tea
Brain Surgery quotes by James Rollins
#69. Bristol-Meyers Squibb has reported success with monatomic ruthenium to correct cancer cells. Same with platinum and iridium, according to Platinum Metals Review. These atoms actually make the DNA strand correct itself, rebuilding without drugs or radiation. Iridium has been shown to stimulate the pineal gland and appears to fire up 'junk DNA,' leading to the possibility of increased longevity and reopening aging pathways in the brain. #Quote by James Rollins
Brain Surgery quotes by Peter Shotwell
#70. Besides the simple logic involved in trying to find the next move, Go deals with shapes, so some scientists think the artistic power of our right brain is called in to help make decisions when we can't read out all the possibilities (see page 160). This sets up a possible conflict between the hemispheres so that what looks or feels good to one might not be what the other thinks. Thus, besides the sheer excitement of competition and the basic inability for humans to ever be able to completely read out long sequences, this ongoing debate between the two halves of our brain can bring our emotions into play to a high degree. #Quote by Peter Shotwell
Brain Surgery quotes by Michio Kaku
#71. THE SPLIT-BRAIN PARADOX One way in which this picture, based on the corporate hierarchy of a company, deviates from the actual structure of the brain can be seen in the curious case of split-brain patients. One unusual feature of the brain is that it has two nearly identical halves, or hemispheres, the left and right. Scientists have long wondered why the brain has this unnecessary redundancy, since the brain can operate even if one entire hemisphere is completely removed. No normal corporate hierarchy has this strange feature. Furthermore, if each hemisphere has consciousness, does this mean that we have two separate centers of consciousness inside one skull? #Quote by Michio Kaku
Brain Surgery quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#72. To me, it doesn't matter if your scapegoats are the Jews, the homosexuals, the male sex, the Masons, the Jesuits, the Welfare Parasites, the Power Elite, the female sex, the vegetarians, or the Communist Party. To the extent that you need a scapegoat, you simply have not got your brain programmed to work as an efficient problem-solving machine. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Brain Surgery quotes by Ian Neath
#73. Asking where memory is "located" in the brain is like asking where running is located in the body. There are certainly parts of the body that are more important (the legs) or less important (the little fingers) in performing the task of running but, in the end, it is an activity that requires complex coordination among a great many body parts and muscle groups. To extend the analogy, looking for differences between memory systems is like looking for differences between running and walking. There certainly are many differences, but the main difference is that running requires more coordination among the different body parts and can be disrupted by small things (such as a corn on the toe) that may not interfere with walking at all. Are we to conclude, then, that running is located in the corn on your toe? #Quote by Ian Neath
Brain Surgery quotes by Suzy Kassem
#74. Always praise your kid even if he/she is unresponsive to learning. By insulting them and putting them down, you will only push them away and make them feel inadequate around other kids. Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. Be patient. Just as there are ugly ducklings that turn into swans, there are rebellious kids that turn into serious innovators and hardcore intellectuals. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Brain Surgery quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#75. The families of many athletes - incensed at the sports leagues and hoping to make games safer overall - are increasingly making the brains of players who die prematurely and suspiciously available for study. Some athletes are even making the bequest themselves. #Quote by Jeffrey Kluger
Brain Surgery quotes by Cindi Madsen
#76. I haven't done anything you're supposed to do. Like get so drunk you puke and don't remember the rest of the night."
"Overrated, I swear."
She looked at me, that deadly look on her face, and I held up my hands. "Fine. You wanna get drunk and puke, I'm not gonna stop you."
"But I want to do, like more than just drinking." Her brow furrowed and I could practically see the wheels in her brain spinning. "I should make a list and outline a plan."
I was going to point out that list-making wasn't the best way to let loose, but I decided to let it go. #Quote by Cindi Madsen
Brain Surgery quotes by King James I
#77. A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and in the black, stinking fume thereof nearest resembling the horrible Stygian smoke of the pit that is bottomless. #Quote by King James I
Brain Surgery quotes by Oliver Sacks
#78. The power of music and the plasticity of the brain go together very strikingly, especially in young people. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Brain Surgery quotes by Rob Buyea
#79. It's tough when your brain and heart don't seem to agree. But I've found it's easier to change your mind than it is your heart. You should follow your heart, because a good heart makes a good person, whereas a good brain can still make a bad person. The Recruits all have good hearts - that's what makes us special. #Quote by Rob Buyea
Brain Surgery quotes by Stephen King
#80. Teaching school is like having jumper cables hooked to your brain, draining all the juice out of you. #Quote by Stephen King
Brain Surgery quotes by John Piper
#81. When people think about 'thinking,' they often think 'academia;' they think 'threat.' They think 'coldness.' I want to reverse all those images and say, 'No, the brain God gave you is intended to throw fuel on the fire of your affections for God. It's really good at it if you let it.' #Quote by John Piper
Brain Surgery quotes by Dennis Vickers
#82. Since these words went into William's fermenting little brain not as word memories, but as circuitry for storing word memories, bricks used to build the kiln for firing bricks, he has no recollection of the rhyme, yet the ideas in it are axioms of his mental geometry. #Quote by Dennis Vickers
Brain Surgery quotes by The Inkslinger
#83. For me, stories are like WD-40 for the brain: they keep all the wheels and gears and clicky-things running smoothly. Without them, cognitive function becomes a bore. #Quote by The Inkslinger
Brain Surgery quotes by G. Frank Lawlis
#84. According to a recent study, depression is described as being the disease most destructive to humankind, largely because of the devastation it wreaks on our lives ... Yes, we could set up our minds to ignore our feelings and barricade ourselves from the winds and dust of the brain pattern. And we could become like robots, refusing to consider the passion and joys that could be ours. But then, we also might as well be dead. #Quote by G. Frank Lawlis
Brain Surgery quotes by Bram Stoker
#85. Friend John, to you with so much experience already, and you too, dear Madam Mina, that are young, here is a lesson. Do not fear ever to think. A half thought has been buzzing often in my brain, but I fear to let him loose his wings. Here now, with more knowledge, I go back to where that half thought come from and I find that he be no half thought at all. That be a whole thought, though so young that he is not yet strong to use his little wings. Nay, like the 'Ugly Duck' of my friend Hans Andersen, he be no duck thought at all, but a big swan thought that sail nobly on big wings, when the time come for him to try them. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Brain Surgery quotes by Marilyn Quayle
#86. I'd like to dispel the myth that when you put a wedding ring on a woman, her brain stops. #Quote by Marilyn Quayle
Brain Surgery quotes by Kyousuke Motomi
#87. Haha, I can't hit you. If I did, I'd feel sorry for the person who'd have to clean up the mess of your splattered brain. #Quote by Kyousuke Motomi
Brain Surgery quotes by Ted Leo
#88. Most of the time I wind up with a sleepily mumbled melodic line, sometimes with words, sometimes not. But then with my waking brain I have to decide whether it's worth ... I mean, sometimes it's not worth it. #Quote by Ted Leo
Brain Surgery quotes by Douglas Adams
#89. After a fairly shaky start to the day, Arthur's mind was beginning to reassemble itself from the shell-shocked fragments the previous day had left him with.
He had found a Nutri-Matic machine which had provided him with a plastic cup filled with a liquid that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.
The way it functioned was very interesting. When the Drink button was pressed it made an instant but highly detailed examination of the subject's taste buds, a spectroscopic analysis of the subject's metabolism and then sent tiny experimental signals down the neural pathways to the taste centers of the subject's brain to see what was likely to go down well. However, no one knew quite why it did this because it invariably delivered a cupful of liquid that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Brain Surgery quotes by Kevin Kelly
#90. A brain is a society of very small, simple modules that cannot be said to be thinking, that are not smart in themselves. But when you have a network of them together, out of that arises a kind of smartness. #Quote by Kevin Kelly
Brain Surgery quotes by Rene Redzepi
#91. If you see someone in the kitchen that has good hands and a quick brain, then you need that person to be in the front of everything. #Quote by Rene Redzepi
Brain Surgery quotes by Zadie Smith
#92. All novels attempt to cut neural routes through the brain, to convince us that down this road the true future of the novel lies. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Brain Surgery quotes by Michael Frank
#93. The brain is like a massive LEGO set, where each of the individual pieces is quite simple (like a single LEGO piece), and all the power comes from the nearly infinite ways that these simple pieces can be recombined to do different things. #Quote by Michael Frank
Brain Surgery quotes by George Orwell
#94. For if in careless summer days
In groves of Ashtaroth we whored,
Repentant now, when winds blow cold,
We kneel before our rightful lord;
The lord of all, the money-god,
Who rules us blood and hand and brain,
Who gives the roof that stops the wind,
And, giving, takes away again;
Who spies with jealous, watchful care,
Our thoughts, our dreams, our secret ways,
Who picks our words and cuts our clothes,
And maps the pattern of our days;
Who chills our anger, curbs our hope,
And buys our lives and pays with toys,
Who claims as tribute broken faith,
Accepted insults, muted joys;
Who binds with chains the poet's wit,
The navvy's strength, the soldier's pride,
And lays the sleek, estranging shield
Between the lover and his bride. #Quote by George Orwell
Brain Surgery quotes by Stephen Amell
#95. When I get time off, my brain is just, that's it. I sit. I veg. People will think that I'm upset or not happy, but I'm just exhausted. I'm just zoned out. #Quote by Stephen Amell
