Currents quotes by Louis Bachelier

Currents quotes by Ted Cruz
#2. The proper way to make policy changes is for you to convince your fellow citizens that there is a better policy outcome than the current one. And then in state legislatures, for those state legislatures to vote that change. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Currents quotes by Shigeru Miyamoto
#3. The PSP will not be able to display anything that you cannot do on a current system. #Quote by Shigeru Miyamoto
Currents quotes by James Tooley

Currents quotes by Sarah Vowell

Currents quotes by Lynn Povich
#6. What led to our revolt? Why did our generation suddenly realize that our place in society was changing--and had to change? In part, we were carried by the social and political currents of our time...But even with the social winds in our sails and the women's movement behind us, each of us had to overcome deeply held values and traditional social strictures. The struggle was personally painful and professionally scary. What would happen to us? Would we win our case? Would we change the magazine? Or would we be punished? Who would succeed and who would not? And if our revolt failed, were our careers over--or were they over anyway? We knew that filing the suit legally protected us from being fired, but we didn't trust the editors not to find some way to do us in.

Whatever happened, the immediate result is that it put us all on the line. "The night after the press conference I realized there was no turning back," said Lucy Howard. "Once I stepped up and said I wanted to be a writer, it was over. I wanted to change Newsweek, but everything was going to change. #Quote by Lynn Povich
Currents quotes by Ai Weiwei
#7. I think art certainly is the vehicle for us to develop any new ideas, to be creative, to extend our imagination, to change the current conditions. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Currents quotes by Anonymous
#8. The surface level explanations of how things work, and the surface opinions and preferences, are created by the environment in which the person operates - like the waves on the surface of a lake. You're not after these explanations, nor preferences or opinions. You're interested in plumbing the depths to understand the currents flowing in her mind. #Quote by Anonymous
Currents quotes by Jim Rogers
#9. If the current birth rate, which is the lowest in the major developed countries, continues, there will be no Japanese. Who will pay the enormous debt? #Quote by Jim Rogers
Currents quotes by Jill Conner Browne
#10. If you are stuck sweating on a sandbar in the river of your life you've got to find a way back into those swift effervescent currents of joy that are your birthright. #Quote by Jill Conner Browne
Currents quotes by George MacDonald
#11. The claim that hung over him haunted his very life, turning the currents of his thought into channels of speculation unknown before.
One day when these questions were fighting in his heart, all at once it seemed as if a soundless voice in the depth of his soul replied, "Thy soul, however it became known to itself, is from the pure heart of God."
And with the thought, the horizon of his life began to clear. #Quote by George MacDonald
Currents quotes by Edward Forbes
#12. Who that has ever visited the borders of this classic sea, has not felt at the first sight of its waters a glow of reverent rapture akin to devotion, and an instinctive sensation of thanksgiving at being permitted to stand before these hallowed waves? All that concerns the Mediterranean is of the deepest interest to civilized man, for the history of its progress is the history of the development of the world; the memory of the great men who have lived and died around its banks; the recollection of the undying works that have come thence to delight us for ever; the story of patient research and brilliant discoveries connected with every physical phenomenon presented by its waves and currents, and with every order of creatures dwelling in and around its waters. The science of the Mediterranean is the epitome of the science of the world. #Quote by Edward Forbes
Currents quotes by Anonymous
#13. O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. 2 You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength,[*] silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. 3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers - the moon and the stars you set in place - 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?[*] 5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God[*] and crowned them[*] with glory and honor. 6 You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority - 7 the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, 8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. 9 O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! #Quote by Anonymous
Currents quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#14. Unfortunately, all life on earth - the only life we know - represents, for all its current variety, the results of a single experiment , for every earthly species evolved from the common ancestry of a single origin. We desperately need a repetition of the experiment (several would be better, but let's not be greedy!) in order to make a judgement. Mars represents our first real hope for a second experiment - the sine qua non - for any proper answer for the question of questions. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Currents quotes by Ken Watanabe
#15. The King struggles to work with other countries. It's a warrior's concern, and as current events [demonstrate], the challenges in working with international partners are very serious and far from comedic. #Quote by Ken Watanabe
Currents quotes by Lindsay Buroker
#16. Sespian opened his mouth, paused, closed it, then shook his head ruefully. "It's very easy to be drawn into what you're saying, and I catch myself wanting to nod and agree. Maybe I should take notes on your technique."
Amaranthe blushed and felt like she should stutter an apology, but she hadn't done anything to be embarrassed about, had she?
"It's her eyes", Sicarius said, startling her..
Yara glanced over her shoulder at him, apparently, surprised to hear him speak, but soon turned her attention back to the tracks. She seemed to be believe she should remain silent for the discussion.
Sespian scratched his jaw. "Yes, maybe so. They're like a doe's. Warm and earnest and ... "
"Wholesome. Sicarius's eyes glinted, and Amaranthe scowled at him. #Quote by Lindsay Buroker
Currents quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#17. The ocean's currents are a turbulent emotion which man has yet to come to terms with. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Currents quotes by Orlando Figes
#18. The currents of modern civilization had somehow passed it by, and as he returned to it now, fresh from the sides of England and France, Sergei Semenov saw only familiar signs of backwardness and decay. #Quote by Orlando Figes
Currents quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#19. I compare myself with my former self, not with others. Not only that, I tend to compare my current self with the best I have been, which is when I have been midly manic. When I am my present "normal" self, I am far removed from when I have been my liveliest, most productive, most intense, most outgoing and effervescent. In sort, for myself, I am a hard act to follow. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Currents quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#20. I'm convinced that after years of studying the phenomenon, global warming is not the real issue of temperature. That is the issue of a new ideology or a new religion. A religion of climate change or a religion of global warming. This is a religion which tells us that the people are responsible for the current, very small increase in temperatures. And they should be punished. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
Currents quotes by Keary Taylor
#21. Sam's eyes studied my lips and I studied hers. We each leaned in closer until our foreheads were touching. It felt like currents of electricity were running through the two of us, making me feel like I was going to melt from the intensity. #Quote by Keary Taylor
Currents quotes by Horace Binney Wallace
#22. Oh, sweet thy current by town and by tower, The green sunny vale and the dark linden bower; Thy waves as they dimple smile back on the plain, And Rhine, ancient river, thou'rt German again! #Quote by Horace Binney Wallace
Currents quotes by Sebastian Faulks
#23. Currents of desire and excitement that she had not known or thought about for years now flooded in her. She wanted him to bring alive what she had buried, and to demean, destroy, her fabricated self. #Quote by Sebastian Faulks
Currents quotes by Robert Pinsky
#24. The last thing a young artist should do in poetry or any other field is think about what's in style, what's current, what are the trends. Think instead of what you like to read, what do you admire, what you like to listen to in music. What do you like to look at in architecture? Try to make a poem that has some of those qualities. #Quote by Robert Pinsky
Currents quotes by Chrissy Costanza
#25. The line is "So we beat on, boats against the current, born back ceaselessly into the past." We've interpreted it as the meaning of us [when we] went against the current, against the grain and did what felt natural to us ... regardless of what we thought we were supposed to be doing. We threw all of that out the window. We existed how we wanted to. #Quote by Chrissy Costanza
Currents quotes by Michael McCaul
#26. The President of Iran has called for the destruction of Israel and the West and has even denied the holocaust took place. Iran and its terrorist arm Hezbollah are responsible for the current conflicts between Israel and Lebanon. #Quote by Michael McCaul
Currents quotes by Jesmyn Ward
#27. There's things that move a man. Like currents of water inside. Things he can't help. Older I got, the more I found it true. What's in Stag is like water so black and deep you can't see the bottom. #Quote by Jesmyn Ward
Currents quotes by Carsten Jensen
#28. War was like sailing. You could learn about clouds, wind direction, and currents, but the sea remained forever unpredictable. All you could do was adapt to it and try to return home alive. #Quote by Carsten Jensen
Currents quotes by Dave Hickey
#29. With the artists, I don't teach, I coach. I can't tell them how to make art. I tell them to make more art. I tell them to get up early and stay up late. I tell them not to quit. I tell them if somebody else is already making their work. My job is to be current with the discourse and not be an asshole. That's all I wanted in a professor. #Quote by Dave Hickey
Currents quotes by Jackee Harry
#30. I just remember lot of men running around in little tiny gold shorts! The format - it was kind of hard. You really have to know about pop culture and I'm not really knowledgeable about a lot of those things. I know what I like. They'd ask about Gwyneth Paltrow, and I don't know anything about her, except her mother. I know who her mother is. So you really have to be current and relevant. #Quote by Jackee Harry
Currents quotes by William Rehnquist
#31. Somewhere "out there," beyond the walls of the courthouse, run currents and tides of public opinion which lap at the courtroom door. #Quote by William Rehnquist
Currents quotes by Gail Carriger
#32. She sifted, sighed, and stared up at the ceiling, trying to think about anything but Lord Maccoon, her current predicament, or Lord Akeldama's safety. Which meant she could do nothing but reflect on the complex plight of her mama's more recent embroidery project. Thins, in itself, was a worse torture than any her captors could devise. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Currents quotes by Andy Stanley
#33. [God] wants you to go home, look at your bucket of seed, and determine in your heart how much you'd like to sow. He wants you to consider thoughtfully your current circumstances, your life, your potential, and your finances. He wants you to involve your family. He wants you to pray about it. And then He wants you to come up with a plan. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Currents quotes by Joe Bageant
#34. There, in the unconscious, we sleep upon the psyche's oceanic floor, together like some vast bed of kelp, each wavering strand an individual American, swaying in the currents of national suggestion. In the form of a giant Portuguese man-of-war, our government hovers, rippling above us, showering freshly produced national memory spores on the fertile bed of our forgetfulness. Schools of undulating corporate jellyfish pass over, sowing the brands of products and services ... followed by the octopi called media and marketing, issuing milky clouds of sperm to fertilise the seeds with the animating plasma of The Great Dream. #Quote by Joe Bageant
Currents quotes by John Muir
#35. We all flow from one fountain- Soul. All are expressions of one love. God does not appear, and flow out, only from narrow chinks and round bored wells here and there in favored races and places, but He flows in grand undivided currents, shoreless and boundless over creeds and forms and all kinds of civilizations and peoples and beasts, saturating all and fountainizing all. #Quote by John Muir
Currents quotes by Eric Alterman
#36. Three centuries after the appearance of Franklin's 'Courant', it no longer requires a dystopic imagination to wonder who will have the dubious distinction of publishing America's last genuine newspaper. Few believe that newspapers in their current printed form will survive. #Quote by Eric Alterman
Currents quotes by Heather Vogel Frederick
#37. But Aunt Anne has encouraged me to continue. In many regards, life itself is a voyage, she says. We never know where its winds and currents will carry us, she says, or what adventures lie ahead, and surely it's worth keeping record of this journey as well. #Quote by Heather Vogel Frederick
Currents quotes by Annette Vaillancourt
#38. When you, the lover, are ready, your SoulMate will inevitably come. The two currents of your life mission and purpose and their life mission and purpose are on a collision course. It is only a matter of time. #Quote by Annette Vaillancourt
Currents quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#39. Each nation has a main current in life; in India it is religion. Make it strong and the waters on either side must move along with it. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Currents quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#40. As a woman, a true loyal friendship is important. Truth be told, it takes patience and a lot of work. You will have some friendships that will be underestimated and tested. Most definitely, there will be some friendships that will come and go. However, there will be friendships and sisterhoods that will last a lifetime. A true sister will walk through the fire with you; and after she walks through the fire, she will stand against the rough currents with you. Nobody is perfect. True sisterhood is a gift that absolutely holds your love together. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Currents quotes by Milton Friedman
#41. In the current world, with the skills needed, dropouts [like no secondary education] are condemned to being members of the underclass. In my view, this is a fault of the American school system, which is a government monopoly. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Currents quotes by Reginald Hudlin
#42. Young filmmakers are supposed to be the young turks that advance the current state of filmmaking ideas. #Quote by Reginald Hudlin
Currents quotes by Esther Hicks
#43. Most people are rowing against the current of life. Instead of turning the boat around, all they need to do is let go of the oars. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Currents quotes by Alan W. Watts
#44. [T]he art of life is more like navigation than warfare, for what is important is to understand the winds, the tides, the currents, the seasons, and the principles of growth and decay, so that one's actions may use them and not fight them. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Currents quotes by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
#45. Oersted would never have made his great discovery of the action of galvanic currents on magnets had he stopped in his researches to consider in what manner they could possibly be turned to practical account; and so we would not now be able to boast of the wonders done by the electric telegraphs. Indeed, no great law in Natural Philosophy has ever been discovered for its practical implications, but the instances are innumerable of investigations apparently quite useless in this narrow sense of the word which have led to the most valuable results. #Quote by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
Currents quotes by David Brin
#46. History and geology show what an eyeblink it's been since our current, comfortable culture came about. And yet that culture is using up absolutely everything at a ferocious rate. #Quote by David Brin
Currents quotes by Chris Murray
#47. Each step of your current journey will take you to new and interesting worlds of opportunity and as every intrepid explorer knows, when one visits strange new lands one must be aware of their customs. #Quote by Chris Murray
Currents quotes by LeRoy Neiman
#48. It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few. Possibly the current favorite is titled 'Big Band' completed in 2005. It measures 13 feet x 9 feet. It has 18 nearly life size recognizable portraits of the biggest jazz stars that I knew and saw perform in the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s and includes Wynton Marsalis. #Quote by LeRoy Neiman
Currents quotes by Robert Brown
#49. These motions were such as to satisfy me, after frequently repeated observation, that they arose neither from currents in the fluid, nor from its gradual evaporation, but belonged to the particle itself.
[Summary of Brownian motion.] #Quote by Robert Brown
Currents quotes by Kathy Krajco
#50. In a very real way, attention is a drug. Like dope, attention makes people feel good by delivering a 'hit' of certain neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit, or block the transmission of electrochemical currents) in the brain. Like anything that does this (viz., sex, risk-taking, power), in excessive amounts it's addictive. And, simply because it works, nothing is as addictive as a pain killer. Hence Narcissus is well-named from the Greek word for narcosis.

Attention is his pain killer. #Quote by Kathy Krajco
Currents quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#51. She had begun to bake to have her eyes looking at a bowl, a flour bin, an oven, a fire, a face, anything but water. Her hands shaped loaves like scallop shells, like moon shells, like starfish; she ate them as if she ate the sea, to make it part of her, to transform bone to shell and lose herself in it, eyeless, thoughtless, wrapped in memories and anchored on some hoary rock against the currents of the deep. #Quote by Patricia A. McKillip
Currents quotes by Dick Morris
#52. Obama does not believe in individual upward mobility. He would penalize it, tax it, regulate it, inveigh against it and disincentivize it. We will be like salmon swimming upstream to mate. We will overcome the currents, the waterfall, the rocks and the predators, and will grapple our way up the stream. Then, at the top of the waterfall will stand Obama the Bear, waiting to scoop us up and have us for dinner. The taxman cometh. #Quote by Dick Morris
Currents quotes by Christine Feehan
#53. Gregori was as still as a statue, his face a blank mask, his silver eyes as empty as death, yet Shea gave him a wide berth. There was something dangerous in his utter stillness. Shea felt she had no way to sorting out the complexity of the Carpathian male's nature. Gregori was watching Raven through narrowed, restless eyes, eyes that saw far too much. Suddenly he cursed, low and vicious, startling from someone of his stature and power. "She should not put herself at risk. She is with child."
His eyes met Jacques', silver lightning and black ice. Total understanding between the two men. Shea merged her mind with Jacues' quickly to try to understand the hidden currents. Raven's pregnancy, if she was pregnant, changed everything as far as the men were concerned. Shea could see no evidence of a child - Raven appeared as slim as ever - but she couldn't believe the healer would be wrong. He seemed so infallible, so completely invincible. The child was everything, all-important to the men. It surprised, even shocked her, the way they regarded the pregnancy. It was a miracle to both of them. The baby was more important than their lives. Shea was confused. Despite Jacques' fractured memories, his protective streak was extremely strong.
"He's aware of his surroundings, but he can't move. Even his mind is locked and still. He is paralyzed somehow." Raven's voice startled Shea, brought her back to the stormy weather and their rescue mission. Raven was clearly speaking of Byron. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Currents quotes by Seth Lloyd
#54. The amount of information that can be stored by the ultimate laptop, 10 to the 31st bits, is much higher than the 10 to the 10th bits stored on current laptops. #Quote by Seth Lloyd
Currents quotes by Charles Dickens
#55. The rippling of the river seemed to cause a correspondent stir in his uneasy reflections. He would have laid them asleep if he could, but they were in movement, like the stream, and all tending one way with a strong current. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Currents quotes by Sherrod Brown
#56. Anyone who's tried to pay a heating bill, fill a prescription, or simply buy groceries knows all too well that the current minimum wage does not cut the mustard. #Quote by Sherrod Brown
Currents quotes by James Clerk Maxwell
#57. One of the chief peculiarities of this treatise is the doctrine that the true electric current, on which the electromagnetic phenomena depend, is not the same thing as the current of conduction, but that the time-variation of the electric displacement must [also] be taken into account ... #Quote by James Clerk Maxwell
Currents quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#58. The life of action need not be renounced. If you meditate for an hour or two every day you can then carry on with your duties. If you meditate in the right manner then the current of mind induced will continue to flow even in the midst of your work. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Currents quotes by Thomas Southerne
#59. Words may be counterfeit, false coined, and current only from the tongue, without the mind; but passion is in the soul, and always speaks the heart. #Quote by Thomas Southerne
Currents quotes by Joseph L. Bast
#60. The scientists Heartland works with demanded we host a ninth conference this year to foster a much-needed frank, honest, and open discussion of the current state of climate science and we just couldn't refuse. The public, the press, and the scientific community will all benefit from learning about the latest research and observational data that indicate climate science is anything but 'settled. #Quote by Joseph L. Bast
Currents quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#61. I had often stood on the banks of the Concord, watching the lapse of the current, an emblem of all progress, following the same law with the system, with time, and all that is madeand at last I resolved to launch myself on its bosom and float whither it would bear me. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Currents quotes by Roy Keane
#62. I was a big fan of Maradona growing up and of the current crop Ronaldo is good but Messi is the best I've ever seen. I don't dish out praise lightly but Messi deserves it. I look for weaknesses in his game and I can't find them. #Quote by Roy Keane
Currents quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#63. For the current of our spiritual life creeds, rituals and channels that may thwart or help, according to their fixity or openness. When a symbol or spiritual idea becomes rigidly elaborate in its construction, it supplants the idea which it should support. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Currents quotes by Laurence Sterne
#64. Titles of honor are like the impressions on coins, which add no value to gold or silver, but only render brass current. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Currents quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#65. If the work of the city is the remaking or translating of man into a more suitable form than his nomadic ancestors achieved, then might not our current translation of our entire lives into the spiritual form of information seem to make of the entire. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Currents quotes by David Limbaugh
#66. Obama ran on a platform of unmitigated optimism - a promise to usher in a brighter day for America. But there could hardly be a greater contrast between his pledge and his performance in office, between his commitment to the nation and his current abandonment of all hope. #Quote by David Limbaugh
Currents quotes by Jon Corzine
#67. No family gets rich from earning the minimum wage. In fact, the current minimum wage does not even lift a family out of poverty. #Quote by Jon Corzine
Currents quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#68. It is a well-known fact that in countries in which the national debt is properly funded, and an object of established confidence, it answers most of the purposes of money. Transfers of stock, or public debt, are there equivalent to payments in specie; or, in other words, stock, in the principal transactions of business, passes current as specie. The same thing would, in all probability, happen here, under the like circumstances. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Currents quotes by Henry James
#69. The will, I believe, is the mystery of mysteries. Who can say beforehand that his will is strong? There are all kinds of indefinable currents moving to and fro between one's will and one's inclinations. People talk as if the two things were essentially distinct; on different sides of one's organism, like the heart and the liver. I believe there is a certain group of circumstances possible for every man, in which his will is destined to snap like a dry twig. #Quote by Henry James
Currents quotes by Don Edward Beck
#70. It's not that we need to form new organizations. It's simply that we have to awaken to new ways of thinking. I believe it makes no sense to spend a lot of time attacking the current realities. It is time to create the new models that have in them the complexity that makes the older systems obsolete. And to the extent that we can do that, and do that quickly, I think we can provide what will be necessary for a major breakthrough for the future. #Quote by Don Edward Beck
Currents quotes by John MacLachlan Gray
#71. One of the criteria by which we measure the worth of public figures is whether or not their brand of bull is in step with the current Zeitgeist. #Quote by John MacLachlan Gray
Currents quotes by Jose Rizal
#72. The batteries are gradually becoming charged, and if the prudence of the government does not provide an outlet for the currents that are accumulating, some day the spark will be generated. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Currents quotes by Steve Sailer
#73. Racism is to the current era what unAmericanism was to the Fifties: a curse word that provides a handy substitute for logical thought. #Quote by Steve Sailer
Currents quotes by John Holdren
#74. The whole climate is changing: the winds, the ocean currents, the storm patterns, snow packs, snowmelt, flooding, droughts. Temperature is just a bit of it. #Quote by John Holdren
Currents quotes by Edgar Mitchell
#75. We are creating the future. It is not determined. If we get our act together and solve our current problems, we could have a sustainable, abundant future. If we don't, we could wipe ourselves out. We are on the verge of doing it with our current politics. It is regressive, going back the other way. #Quote by Edgar Mitchell
Currents quotes by Jim Cooper
#76. While tax refunds amount to substantial income for many Americans, current IRS rules do not allow taxpayers to directly deposit their refund into more than one account. #Quote by Jim Cooper
Currents quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#77. Standing on the bare ground,
my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space,
all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or parcel of God. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Currents quotes by Simon Critchley
#78. The current situation with regard to theory is odd and maybe defined by a paradox. #Quote by Simon Critchley
Currents quotes by Jeb Hensarling
#79. What I'd like to do is be able to work with Democrats to reform current entitlement programs for future generations, grandfathering all the grandparents. #Quote by Jeb Hensarling
Currents quotes by Victor J. Stenger
#80. In fact, current cosmological observations indicate that the average density of matter and energy in the universe is equal, within measurement errors, to the critical density for which the total energy of the universe was exactly zero at the beginning. #Quote by Victor J. Stenger
Currents quotes by Vladimir Kovalyov
#81. After an orange cloud - formed as a result of a dust storm over the Sahara and caught up by air currents - reached the Philippines and settled there with rain, I understood that we are all sailing in the same boat. #Quote by Vladimir Kovalyov
Currents quotes by Freeman Dyson
#82. The fundamental reason why carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is critically important to biology is that there is so little of it. A field of corn growing in full sunlight in the middle of the day uses up all the carbon dioxide within a meter of the ground in about five minutes. If the air were not constantly stirred by convection currents and winds, the corn would stop growing. #Quote by Freeman Dyson
Currents quotes by Arianna Huffington
#83. Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Currents quotes by James Clerk Maxwell
#84. The experimental investigation by which Ampere established the law of the mechanical action between electric currents is one of the most brilliant achievements in science. The whole theory and experiment, seems as if it had leaped, full grown and full armed, from the brain of the 'Newton of Electricity'. It is perfect in form, and unassailable in accuracy, and it is summed up in a formula from which all the phenomena may be deduced, and which must always remain the cardinal formula of electro-dynamics. #Quote by James Clerk Maxwell
Currents quotes by Lydia Millet
#85. What was a face on television but a code, and what was the difference between these faces but a realignment of line and color to shift among signals? If he grasped deeply this language of symbols, grasped it beneath the surface, he could course through the currents of authority as they coursed through him like heat or the tremble of cold. #Quote by Lydia Millet
Currents quotes by Harriet Prescott Spofford
#86. What rending pains were close at hand! Death! and what a death! worse than any other that is to
be named! Water, be it cold or warm, that which buoys up blue icefields, or which bathes tropical
coasts with currents of balmy bliss, is yet a gentle conqueror, kisses as it kills, and draws you
down gently through darkening fathoms to its heart. Death at the sword is the festival of trumpet
and bugle and banner, with glory ringing out around you and distant hearts thrilling through yours.
No gnawing disease can bring such hideous end as this; for that is a fiend bred of your own flesh,
and this - is it a fiend, this living lump of appetites? What dread comes with the thought of
perishing in flames! but fire, let it leap and hiss never so hotly, is something too remote, too alien,
to inspire us with such loathly horror as a wild beast; if it have a life, that life is too utterly beyond
our comprehension. Fire is not half ourselves; as it devours, arouses neither hatred nor disgust; is
not to be known by the strength of our lower natures let loose; does not drip our blood into our
faces with foaming chaps, nor mouth nor slaver above us with vitality. Let us be ended by fire,
and we are ashes, for the winds to bear, the leaves to cover; let us be ended by wild beasts, and the
base, cursed thing howls with us forever through the forest. #Quote by Harriet Prescott Spofford
Currents quotes by Steven Erikson
#87. Some thoughts, possessing a frightening kind of self-awareness, knew to hide deep beneath others, riding unseen the same currents, where they could grow unchallenged, unexposed by any horrified recognition. One could always sense them, of course, but that was not the same as slashing through all the obfuscation, revealing them bared to the harsh light and so seeing them wither into dust. The mind ran its own shell-game, ever amused at its own sleight of hand misdirection – in truth, this was how one tended to live, from moment to moment, with the endless exchange of denials and deference and quick winks in the mirror, even as inner proclamations and avowals thundered with false willpower and posturing conviction. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Currents quotes by Raghuram Rajan
#88. Our actions will be at measured pace given the current market turmoil. #Quote by Raghuram Rajan
Currents quotes by Ian McEwan
#89. It troubles him to consider the powerful currents and fine-tuning that alter fate, the close and distant influences, the accidents of character and circumstance. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Currents quotes by Mark Helprin
#90. Somewhat unnerved by what he felt were Germanic currents in a man whom he had taken to be just an Italian intellectual who ate flowers, Strassnitzky cautiously argued that "the records are secret, part of the War Office. How do you expect to match the number with the man?" "I haven't the slightest idea," Alessandro said, almost arrogantly, "but God is directly in charge of all things relating to life and death. That I've learned in the war." "You think God is going to get you the operations records of the Austrian army?" "I don't know, but if He were, wouldn't you imagine that the first thing He'd do would be to have me conveyed to Vienna? #Quote by Mark Helprin
Currents quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#91. To attain to perfect purity one has to become absolutely passion-free in thought, speech and action; to rise above the opposing currents of love and hatred, attachment and repulsion. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Currents quotes by Matthew Mather
#92. For me, the flow of information was an apt metaphor. As surfing became my obsession at a young age, my innovation had been to remap my tactile sense into the water around me. Sitting on my surfboard, bobbing up and down between the swells, I could feel the pressure, shape, and temperature of the water's surface around me through my skin. The thousands of neurons attached to each hair follicle could sense even tiny subsurface eddies and water currents. After nearly twenty years of dedicated practice, my brain had neuroplastically reformatted to devote a large part of itself to my water-sense, and I now had the most highly attuned tactile array of any pssi-kid, or for that matter anyone else in the world. Sitting with my eyes closed, I could feel the water moving and undulating around me as a perfectly natural and integral part of my body. I was one with the water, and it was one with me. #Quote by Matthew Mather
Currents quotes by Trevanian
#93. The rope connecting two men on a mountain is more than nylon protection; it is an organic thing that transmits subtle messages of intent and disposition from man to man; it is an extension of the tactile senses, a psychological bond, a wire along which currents of communication flow. #Quote by Trevanian
Currents quotes by Patricia Engel
#94. We didn't yet know about undertows and rip currents, the many ways the ocean can turn on you. #Quote by Patricia Engel
Currents quotes by Eric Alterman
#95. Americans have always evinced some distrust of government, but the current situation has exacerbated this to a degree that may be unprecedented. #Quote by Eric Alterman
Currents quotes by Jamie Fellner
#96. Prisons are woefully ill-equipped for their current role as the nations primary mental health facilities. #Quote by Jamie Fellner
Currents quotes by Lisa Wingate
#97. Love skimmed over the surface like a sailboat, grabbing me up and carrying me along one minute, the speed dizzying, the view passing by so quickly I couldn't take it in. The next minute, my little love boat was swamped in a storm, overturned, the sail pointing toward the murky depths, everything upside down. I was trying to swim with legs of lead. I'd never thought of love this way - as something that moved with the ebb and flow of currents. Push and pull. Joy and pain. Fear and trust. Falling, and trying to balance, and falling again. #Quote by Lisa Wingate
Currents quotes by Muhammad Iqbal
#98. But the perception of life as an organic unity is a slow achievement, and depends for its growth on a people's entry into the main current of world-events. #Quote by Muhammad Iqbal
Currents quotes by Matthew Fontaine Maury
#99. It is a custom often practiced by seafaring people to throw a bottle overboard, with a paper, stating the time and place at which it is done. In the absence of other information as to currents, that afforded by these mute little navigators is of great value. #Quote by Matthew Fontaine Maury
Currents quotes by Amanda Palmer
#100. There's nothing more threatening than a powerful woman, and there's nothing more threatening to the current order of things than women powerfully owning their own narrative. It's so threatening to people, to women as well, and it's threatening the order of things. #Quote by Amanda Palmer
Currents quotes by Bonnie R. Paulson
#101. Deegan pushed once, twice, and rolled the body in. The current's fast fingers claimed Bobby and in less than two seconds he'd slipped beneath the rippling surface. About ten yards down, he bobbed up and then disappeared again. Oh, look, Bobby was bobbing. I chuckled. #Quote by Bonnie R. Paulson
Currents quotes by Michiko Kakutani
#102. The current memoir craze has fostered the belief that confession is therapeutic, that therapy is redemptive and that redemption equals art, and it has encouraged the delusion that candor, daring and shamelessness are substitutes for craft, that the exposed life is the same thing as an examined one. #Quote by Michiko Kakutani
Currents quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#103. I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part of God. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Currents quotes by Norman Douglas
#104. What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes? #Quote by Norman Douglas
Currents quotes by Bobby Scott
#105. Another example of the educational inequality is the current debate over publicly financed school vouchers which will provide educational opportunities to a privileged handful, but deprive public schools of desperately needed resources. #Quote by Bobby Scott
Currents quotes by Gil Courtemanche
#106. People, he told her, are shaped somehow by their climate and the land they live in. Those who live by the sea are like the currents and tides; they go and come, and discover many shores. Their words and loves are like water that slips between one's fingers and is never still. Mountain people have fought the mountain to win their place. Once they have conquered it they protect their mountain, and others coming from far below in the valley risk being seen as enemies. Hill people take some time before greeting each other. #Quote by Gil Courtemanche
Currents quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#107. I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it's just too much. The current's too strong. They've got to let go, drift apart. That's how it is with us. It's a shame, Kath, because we've loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can't stay together forever. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Currents quotes by Philip Pullman
#108. Just as she was unaware of the hidden currents of politics running below the surface of College affairs, so the Scholars, for their part, would have been unable to see the rich seething stew of alliances and enmities and feuds and treaties which was a child's life in Oxford. Children playing together: how pleasant to see! What could be more innocent and charming? #Quote by Philip Pullman
Currents quotes by Julian Casablancas
#109. Greed is the inventor of injustice as well as the current enforcer. #Quote by Julian Casablancas
Currents quotes by Mark Nepo
#110. We often move away from pain, which is helpful only before being hurt. Once in pain, it seems the only way out is through. Like someone falling off a boat, struggling to stay above the water only makes things worse. We must accept we are there and settle enough so we can be carried by the deep. The willingness to do this is the genesis of faith, the giving over to currents larger than us. Even fallen leaves float in lakes, demonstrating how surrender can hold us up. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Currents quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#111. One who can learn to flow with the current as well as manage the current is the successful one. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Currents quotes by Annie Besant
#112. Man peoples his current living space with a world of his own, crowded with the offspring of his fancies, desires, impulses, and passions. #Quote by Annie Besant
Currents quotes by William Walker Atkinson
#113. The use of the Will as the projector of Mentative Currents is the real base of all Mental Magic. #Quote by William Walker Atkinson
Currents quotes by Richard Bach
#114. But one creature said at last, I am tired of clinging. Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom. #Quote by Richard Bach
Currents quotes by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
#115. If you know which way the current is going, you can use it to your advantage. #Quote by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Currents quotes by Martin Walker
#116. So perhaps the most worrying single remark made by a responsible banking official during the current crisis came from Jochen Sanio, the head of Germany's banking regulator BaFin. He warned on Aug. 1 that his country could be facing the worst banking crisis since 1931 - a reference to the collapse of Austria's Kredit Anstalt, which provoked a wave of bank failures across Europe. #Quote by Martin Walker
Currents quotes by Wendell Phillips
#117. It is only liquid currents of thought that move men and the world #Quote by Wendell Phillips
Currents quotes by Patri Friedman
#118. Democracy is the current industry standard political system, but unfortunately it is ill-suited for a libertarian state. #Quote by Patri Friedman
Currents quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#119. Philosophers have often held dispute
As to the seat of thought in man and brute
For that the power of thought attends the latter
My friend, thy beau, hath made a settled matter,
And spite of dogmas current in all ages,
One settled fact is better than ten sages. (O,Tempora! O,Mores!) #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Currents quotes by T.S. Eliot
#120. Yet if the only form of tradition, of handing down, consisted in following the ways of the immediate generation before us in a blind or timid adherence to its successes, "tradition" should positively be discouraged. We have seen many such simple currents soon lost in the sand; and novelty is better than repetition. Tradition is a matter of much wider significance. It cannot be inherited, and if you want it you must obtain it by great labour...the historical sense involves a perception, not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence; the historical sense compels a man to write not merely with his own generation in his bones, but with a feeling that the whole of the literature of Europe from Homer and within it the whole of the literature of his own country has a simultaneous existence and composes a simultaneous order. This historical sense, which is a sense of the timeless as well as of the temporal and of the timeless and of the temporal together, is what makes a writer traditional. And it is at the same time what makes a writer most acutely conscious of his place in time, of his contemporaneity. #Quote by T.S. Eliot
Currents quotes by Annie Fisher
#121. I do not know what inspires the image of a fish but it comes to me, wide eyed, open mouthed and gaping, glimmering, swimming towards me as though a creature of the darkness come to claim me. I imagine it in a twinkling blue pool. It swims through the dark currents of the sea, gliding above sea weed, beneath sunlight, augmenting and shying away from the surface. It belongs to this element between land and sky, sifts through it, a creature of the deep. My mind drifts, fades, but then comes back to the fish: its glimmering scales, its strange beady eyes. Its body is contained within the water. It opens its mouth, moving it open and closed as though it's trying to speak a language I never learned. I think about the fish's lungs, full of water. Is not the sea contained within the fish, too? #Quote by Annie Fisher
Currents quotes by Robin Hahnel
#122. Recognizing that the current form of globalization is nothing more than a generalized downward leveling in which global corporations are extracting more and more of the wealth, power, and productive energies from communities and the environment is the right approach ... And knowing that in every specific battle, what we are fighting for is merely the substitution of the human agenda for the corporate agenda is what can guide and sustain us. #Quote by Robin Hahnel
Currents quotes by Washington Irving
#123. There's nothing like being in fashion. A man that has once got his character up for a wit is always sure of a laugh, say what he may. He may utter as much nonsense as he pleases, and all will pass current. No one stops to question the coin of a rich man; but a poor devil cannot pass off either a joke or a guinea without its being examined on both sides. Wit and coin are always doubted with a threadbare coat. #Quote by Washington Irving
Currents quotes by Kary Mullis
#124. Science has not been successful by making up explanations of things that fit with the current social fabric. #Quote by Kary Mullis
Currents quotes by Taylor Dayne
#125. My current mantra is that sometimes we need teachers in our lives. I never had that in my life, parents and stuff like that; I tried to stay on the outside of them or anybody that had that kind of influence. #Quote by Taylor Dayne
Currents quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#126. Life's fulfillment finds constant obstacles in its path; but those are necessary for the sake of its advance. The stream is saved from the sluggishness of its current by the perpetual opposition of the soil through which it must cut its way. The spirit of fight belongs to the genius of life. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Currents quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#127. Maybe i would become a mermaid ... i would live in the swirling blue-green currents, doing exotic underwater dances for the fish, kissed by sea anemones, caressed by seaweed shawls. I would have a doliphin friend. He would have merry eyes and thick flesh of a god. My fingernails would be tiny shells and my skin would be like jade with light shining through it I would never have to come back up
#Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Currents quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#128. Unpremeditated music is the true gauge which measures the current of our thoughts; the very undertow of our life's stream. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Currents quotes by Jeremy Siegel
#129. The current financial crisis calls out for new products and services as well as more, not less, information about what is safe and profitable in the future environment. #Quote by Jeremy Siegel
Currents quotes by Sara Teasdale
#130. My theory is that poems are written because of a state of emotional irritation. It may be present for some time before the poet is conscious of what is tormenting him. The emotional irritation springs, probably, from subconscious combinations of partly forgotten thoughts and feelings. Coming together, like electrical currents in a thunder storm, they produce a poem ... the poem is written to free the poet from an emotional burden. #Quote by Sara Teasdale
Currents quotes by Harry Reid
#131. The Supreme Court would benefit from the addition of a justice who has real experience as a practicing lawyer. The current justices have all been chosen from the lower federal courts. A nominee with relevant non-judicial experience would bring a different and useful perspective to the court. #Quote by Harry Reid
Currents quotes by Nick Offerman
#132. My wife, the actress Megan Mullally, was an English major at Northwestern University and loves fiction. Like so many things in my life, she curates things for me. For example, I have the daunting prospect of Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch" waiting for me when I get through my current reading pile. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Currents quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#133. One of the most popular current errors, and the one out of which springs most of the noisy, blustering religious activity in evangelical circles, is the notion that as times change the church must change with them. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Currents quotes by William Shakespeare
#134. The native hue of resolution is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought; and enterprises of great pitch and moment, With this regard, their currents turn awry, and lose the name of action. #Quote by William Shakespeare

#135. The only way out of the current crisis is to amend the Constitution. #Quote by Abhisit Vejjajiva
Currents quotes by Dorothea Lasky
#136. Beachy Head brims with electrical currents flying backwards and forwards, with the force of poems that have been well fought out and felt. I hear the currents of Alice Notley, of Bernadette Mayer, of Eileen Myles, and Sylvia Plath #Quote by Dorothea Lasky
Currents quotes by Andrew Thomas
#137. Michael Faraday demonstrated that if you push a magnet through a coil of wire, an electric current flows. Conversely, if you pass an electric current through a wire it can deflect a nearby magnetic compass. From this, Faraday deduced that electric currents create magnetic fields, and moving magnetic fields create electric currents. Thus was electromagnetism discovered, unifying electricity and magnetism. #Quote by Andrew Thomas
Currents quotes by Roger Ebert
#138. 3-D is a waste of a perfectly good dimension. Hollywood's current crazy stampede toward it is suicidal. It adds nothing essential to the moviegoing experience. For some, it is an annoying distraction. For others, it creates nausea and headaches. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Currents quotes by Benedict XVI
#139. How many winds of doctrine we have known in recent decades, how many ideological currents, how many ways of thinking. The small boat of thought of many Christians has often been tossed about by these waves - thrown from one extreme to the other: from Marxism to liberalism, even to libertinism; from collectivism to radical individualism; from atheism to a vague religious mysticism; from agnosticism to syncretism, and so forth. Every day new sects are created and what Saint Paul says about human trickery comes true, with cunning which tries to draw those into error (cf Ephesians 4, 14). Having a clear Faith, based on the Creed of the Church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism. Whereas, relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and 'swept along by every wind of teaching', looks like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards. We are moving towards a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires. However, we have a different goal: the Son of God, true man. He is the measure of true humanism. Being an 'Adult' means having a faith which does not follow the waves of today's fashions or the latest novelties. A faith which is deeply rooted in friendship with Christ is adult and mature. It is this friendship which opens us up to all that is good and gives us the knowledge to judge true from false, and deceit from truth. #Quote by Benedict XVI
Currents quotes by Mira Grant
#140. Global climate change had been impacting the world's oceans since the early 1980s, although most people hadn't noticed the transformation until the mid-2010s, when the reduced surface temperatures, increased ferocity of storms, and seemingly endless blooms of toxic algae had become severe enough to make headline news. As the glaciers melted, they dumped their runoff into the deep currents that warmed much of the world. The sudden freshwater influx lowered the ocean's temperature and overall salinity even as temperatures on land continued to climb. Fish were dying. Whales and other large sea mammals were changing their ancient migration patterns, following the food into waters where they had never been seen before. Sharks were doing the same, sending scientists into tizzies and panicking the public. #Quote by Mira Grant
Currents quotes by John Locke
#141. There cannot be greater rudeness than to interrupt another in the current of his discourse. #Quote by John Locke
Currents quotes by Margaret Sanger
#142. Some lives drift here and there like reeds in a stream, depending on changing currents for their activity. Others are like swimmers knowing the depth of the water. Each stroke helps them onward to a definite objective. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Currents quotes by L.R. Knost
#143. She is fragile as the morning dew
melting in the warmth of a child's smile;
stirring at the lonely, lovely waft
of a butterfly's wings;
tender as the curve
of a wildflower petal.
She is fierce as a summer storm
now raging against the fiery sky;
now raining tears to soothe
the sun-scorched earth.
She is soft as a midnight breeze
swaying to the sound of waves breaking
on distant shores;
whispering comfort to a world
steeped in the dark night of inhumanity.
She is brilliant as the rising Phoenix
lifting the suffering from the ashes;
her own suffering woven into wings of fire
in the long watches of the night.
She is serene and turbulent as the silvered water
hiding currents unknown beneath the gentle gaze
of a human who has walked a thousand miles and still has more to go. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Currents quotes by Adrienne Rich
#144. Well,
she's long about her coming, who must be
more merciless to herself than history.
Her mind full to the wind, I see her plunge
breasted and glancing through the currents,
taking the light upon her
at least as beautiful as any boy
or helicopter,
poised, still coming,
her fine blades making the air wince

but her cargo
no promise then:
ours. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Currents quotes by Naomi Wolf

Currents quotes by Nikola Tesla
#147. Alternate currents, especially of high frequencies, pass with astonishing freedom through even slightly rarefied gases. The upper strata of the air are rarefied. To reach a number of miles out into space requires the overcoming of difficulties of a merely mechanical nature. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Currents quotes by Paulo Coelho
#148. But love is much like a dam; if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Currents quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#149. Evie felt queer and light-headed as she stood facing St. Vincent. The moment he slid the ring onto her finger, her heart began beating much too fast, setting off reckless currents of something that was neither eagerness or fear, but a new emotion that heightened her senses unbearably. There was no word for it, this feeling. Tension gripped her while the pounding of her pulse refused to abate. Their hands flattened together, his fingers much longer than hers, his palm smooth and hot.
His head inclined slightly, his face covering hers. Although he was expressionless, a hint of color had glazed the high planes of his cheekbones and crossed the bridge of his nose. And his breath was faster than usual. Surprised by the realization that she had already come to know something as intimate as the normal rhythm of his breathing, Evie averted her gaze. She saw the blacksmith taking a length of white ribbon from one of his daughters, and she flinched a little as he looped it firmly around their joined wrists.
A wordless murmur tickled her ear, and she felt St. Vincent's free hand come up to the side of her neck, stroking her as if she were a nervous animal. She relaxed at his touch, while his fingertips moved over her skin with sensitive lightness. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Currents quotes by Charles S. Faddis

Currents quotes by Janusz Korwin-Mikke

Currents quotes by Ramon Novarro
#154. I was always the hero with no vices, reciting practically the same lines to the leading lady. The current crop of movie actors are less handicapped than the old ones. They are more human. The leading men of silent films were Adonises and Apollos. Today the hero can even take a poke at the leading lady. In my time a hero who hit the girl just once would have been out. #Quote by Ramon Novarro
Currents quotes by Pat Conroy
#155. If any writer in this country has collected as fine and passionate a group of readers as I have, they're fortunate and lucky beyond anyone's imagination. It remains a shock to me that I've had a successful writing career. Not someone like me; Lord, there were too many forces working against me, too many dark currents pushing against me, but it somehow worked. Though I wish I'd written a lot more, been bolder with my talent, more forgiving of my weaknesses, I've managed to draw a magic audience into my circle. They come to my signings to tell me stories, their stories. The ones that have hurt them and made their nights long and their lives harder. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Currents quotes by Mya Robarts
#156. Among the fluctuation of the river currents, an abyss as green as the sea, its extension and profundity as immense as the ocean opened before me: the eyes of a beautiful girl.
I succumbed into that abyss instantly, like a man who falls from the highest cliff into the ocean …
… and I drowned. #Quote by Mya Robarts
Currents quotes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
#157. The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself, carry you away. It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion; it is the current which he puts forth which sweeps you along in his passion. #Quote by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Currents quotes by Keith Olbermann
#158. At Current, television is all we do - that's our business. We don't have amusement parks I have to worry about, we don't have environmental cases against us, we don't have a series of outdoor-advertising companies. #Quote by Keith Olbermann
Currents quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#159. The difference between talent and genius is this: while the former usually develops some special branch of our faculties, the latter commands them all. When the former is combined with tact, it is often more than a match for the latter. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Currents quotes by John Dewey

Currents quotes by Bette Midler
#166. I think the essence of humor has not changed. It's all about surprise, facilitating follows. But the context of humor has changed. Previously, the jokes were more related to current issues, political. Today people make about each other either funny or about people like Kim Kardashian. It's brutal. Everything is so much vielschmutziger. #Quote by Bette Midler
Currents quotes by Jami Attenberg
#167. In its current incarnation in my life touring is a lot of airports and hotels and car services and only OK food. #Quote by Jami Attenberg
Currents quotes by Mikhail Lomonosov
#168. Nature uncovers the inner secrets of nature in two ways: one by the force of bodies operating outside it; the other by the very movements of its innards. The external actions are strong winds, rains, river currents, sea waves, ice, forest fires, floods; there is only one internal force-earthquake. #Quote by Mikhail Lomonosov
Currents quotes by Robert Trabold
#169. We are all in the same boat,

Perhaps my words may find a

river of life.
-River of Life #Quote by Robert Trabold
Currents quotes by Sophocles
#170. Nothing so evil as money ever grew to be current among men. This lays cities low, this drives men from their homes, this trains and warps honest souls till they set themselves to works of shame; this still teaches folk to practise villainies, and to know every godless deed. But all the men who wrought this thing for hire have made it sure that, soon or late, they shall pay the price. #Quote by Sophocles
Currents quotes by David Brazier
#171. The challenge for us is to realise our unity with all life, and even with the inanimate world around us. The seas with their currents, the atmosphere and the continents of the earth are all in motion, stirring with their own kinds of life. Our malaise as a civilised people comes in large measure from our ability to distance ourselves from nature and from one another. A real therapy is one with a vision, not only of the individual person, but also of how the whole planet is to be healed. #Quote by David Brazier
Currents quotes by Richard Lindzen
#172. In the long run, the replacement of the precise and disciplined language of science by the misleading language of litigation and advocacy may be one of the more important sources of damage to society incurred in the current debate over global warming. #Quote by Richard Lindzen
Currents quotes by Jerzy Kosinski
#173. When I saw them in Africa, I thought these birds were the greatest fliers of all. Hardly beating their wings, they fly for hours, swooping upwards on air currents with no sign of physical effort. But when they land, they pitch forward on their stubby legs without stopping. They skid along on their bellies, their necks straining to absorb the shock of the landing. Their beaks dig into the sand and they collide with anything in their path. Quite often they break their wings or beaks or spines and remain for the rest of their lives in the scrubby thickets not far from where they crash. The crippled birds sit there blind, paralyzed or in shock, and struggle slowly back and forth to their nests. Some hop on one leg, some drag their crippled wings behind them like broken umbrellas. I wonder whether they ever envy their brothers soaring in the air or if they're glad to be grounded and past their trial. #Quote by Jerzy Kosinski
Currents quotes by Saul Landau

Currents quotes by Muhammad Yunus

Currents quotes by Justin Torres
#180. The water was tripping over itself, splashing and hypnotizing, and I tried to fix my mind on a chunk of it, like each little ripple was a life that began far away in a high mountain source and had traveled miles pushing forward until it arrived at this spot before my eyes, and now without hesitation that water-life was hurling itself over the cliff. I wanted my body in all that swiftness; I wanted to feel the slip and pull of the currents and be dashed and pummeled on the rocks below ... #Quote by Justin Torres
Currents quotes by Abbey Lincoln
#181. There are men and women still on the streets, and that's all they are saying Can you spare a quarter? I come from a crowd of people who were current on the outlook on life, who were social and knew where they were and had some input into how things seemed to be. #Quote by Abbey Lincoln
Currents quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#182. There is an inherently minimum set of essential concepts and current information, cognizance of which could lead to our operating our planet Earth to the lasting satisfaction and health of all humanity. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Currents quotes by Pope Francis
#183. Have the courage to go against the tide of this culture of efficiency, this culture of waste. Encountering and welcoming everyone, [building] solidarity - a word that is being hidden by this culture, as if it were a bad word - solidarity and fraternity: these are what make our society truly human. #Quote by Pope Francis
Currents quotes by Gordon Moore
#184. The technology at the leading edge changes so rapidly that you have to keep current after you get out of school. I think probably the most important thing is having good fundamentals. #Quote by Gordon Moore
Currents quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#185. I fear that, with our current veneration for the natural and the real, we have arrived at the opposite pole to all idealism, and have landed in the region of the waxworks. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Currents quotes by Bertrand Meyer
#186. C++ is the only current language making COBOL look good #Quote by Bertrand Meyer
Currents quotes by Viktor Schauberger
#187. I can generate suctional forces, which act indirectly and are entirely undetectable. No current of air can be noticed; only an almost imperceptible cooling, as occurs when air is sucked in strongly with the back of the hand held in front of the mouth. It is therefore incorrect to say that I have copied the cyclones and typhoons of the tropics. #Quote by Viktor Schauberger
Currents quotes by Kenneth Cook
#188. When you travel by road in the west you travel with a cohort of dust which streams up from your tyres and rolls away in a disintegrating funnel, defining the currents of air your vehicle sets in motion ... And the heat is unthinkable, no matter how widely the windows are open, and the sweat streams off your body and into your socks, and if there are a number of people in the car their body stenches mingle disagreeably #Quote by Kenneth Cook
Currents quotes by Iain M. Banks
#189. I once visited a place where they killed people by putting them in a chair. Not torture - that was common enough; beds and chairs were very much the par when it came to getting people helpless and confined, to inflict pain upon them - but actually set it up to kill them while they sat. They - get this - they either gassed them or they passed very high electric currents through them. A pellet dropped into a container beneath the seat, like some obscene image of a commode, producing a fatal gas; or a cap over their head, and their hands dipped in some conducting fluid, to fry their brains.
You want to know the punch line? Yeah, [...] give us the punch line. This same state had a law that forbade - and I quote - "cruel and unusual punishments!" Can you believe that? #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Currents quotes by R. Mark Liebenow
#190. Along the Merced River there's a deep sense of peace, yet it coexists with danger. No matter how sedate the river may appear, it's as wild as the other creatures of Yosemite. Strong currents run underneath the surface. If I were to jump in, the snowmelt cold would induce hypothermia within minutes and, with a little more volume, this calm-looking river would sweep me to my death. People have drowned when it's looked quiet like this, trying to wade across. Someone died here last year, and Sadie Schaeffer, who's buried in the Pioneer Cemetery, died doing that more than a hundred years ago just a short way downriver toward El Capitan. Nature doesn't stop and make exceptions for people who get in its way. #Quote by R. Mark Liebenow
Currents quotes by Louise Gann
#191. The sea was endless, even the man made structures that interfered with the currents hardly prevented it from ceasing its function. For the first time in my life, I didn't feel trapped in some form of bubble, it was the first time that I felt like I could truly breathe without being crushed by societies demands. #Quote by Louise Gann
Currents quotes by Otto Robert Frisch
#192. Today we no longer ask what really goes on in an atom; we ask what is likely to be observed-and with what likelihood-when we subject atoms to any specified influences such as light or heat, magnetic fields or electric currents. #Quote by Otto Robert Frisch
Currents quotes by John Ramsay
#193. The current market ecosystem is not sustainable, and significant changes are coming one way or another, #Quote by John Ramsay
Currents quotes by Eliot Spitzer
#194. While their fiscal views aren't mine, the moderates are the last reasonable voice in the current Republican Party. #Quote by Eliot Spitzer
Currents quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#195. Advice, the smallest current coin. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Currents quotes by Umberto Eco
#196. The Templars realized that the secret lay not only in possessing the global map of the currents, but also in knowing the critical point, the Omphalos, the Umbilicus Telluris, the Navel of the World, the Source of Command. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Currents quotes by Sylvia Plath
#197. It is as if my life were magically run by two electric currents: joyous positive and despairing negative
which ever is running at the moment dominates my life, floods it. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Currents quotes by Esther Hicks
#198. When that which I have chosen to focus upon in this moment evokes love or joy or appreciation, I am, in that moment, offering my greatest value to myself, to my current object of attention and to All-That-Is. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Currents quotes by Pattiann Rogers
#199. The Congregating of Stars

They often meet in mountain lakes,
No matter how remote, no matter how deep
Down and far they must stream to arrive,
Navigating between the steep, vertical piles
Of broken limestone and chert, through shattered
Trees and dry bushes bent low by winter,
Across ravines cut by roaring avalanches
Of boulders and ripping ice.

Silently, the stars have assembled
On the surface of this lost lake tonight,
Arranged themselves to match the patterns
They maintain in the highest spheres
Of the surrounding sky.

And they continue on, passing through
The smooth, black countenance of the lake,
Through that mirror of themselves, down through
The icy waters to touch the perfect bottom
Stillness of the invisible life and death existing
In the nether of those depths.

Sky-bound- yet touching every needle
In the torn and sturdy forest, every stone,
Sharp, cracked along the ragged shore- the stars
Appear the same as in ancient human ages
On the currents of the old seas and the darkened
Trails of desert dunes, Orion's belt the same
As it shone in Galileo's eyes, Polaris certain above
The sails of every mariner's voyage. An echoing
Light from the Magi's star, that bacon, might even
Be shining on this lake tonight, unrecognized.

The stars are congregating, perhaps
in celebration, p #Quote by Pattiann Rogers
Currents quotes by Lia Habel
#200. The air currents must have steered me wrong, for I ended up far off course, and by "far off course" I mean "headed in the opposite direction entirely. #Quote by Lia Habel
