David Yarrow quotes by Rebecca Makkai
#1. I refused to have bookshelves, horrified that I'd feel compelled to organise the books in some regimented system - Dewey or alphabetical or worse - and so the books lived in stacks, some as tall as me, in the most subjective order I could invent.
Thus Nabokov lived between Gogol and Hemingway, cradled between the Old World and the New; Willa Cather and Theodore Dreiser and Thomas Hardy were stacked together not for their chronological proximity but because they all reminded me in some way of dryness (though in Dreiser's case I think I was focused mainly on his name): George Eliot and Jane Austen shared a stack with Thackeray because all I had of his was Vanity Fair, and I thought that Becky Sharp would do best in the presence of ladies (and deep down I worried that if I put her next to David Copperfield, she might seduce him). #Quote by Rebecca Makkai
David Yarrow quotes by David Bowie
#2. And I don't care what anybody says; I like doing it, and it's what I shall continue to do #Quote by David Bowie
David Yarrow quotes by David Levithan
#3. You said before that you were tired. Well, I'm tired, too. Tired of letting everything stay unsaid. We spend all our time together, and we do it because we want to, right? And I guess I think a lot about that, and about us. And about … well, more. Us having more. It's not about lust or sex or whatever you want to call it. I mean, some of it is that. But mostly it's about belonging. When I'm with you, I belong. It just naturally felt like that. And I think it felt like that for you. But I don't know where that leaves us, or even what that is. I'm just tired of trying to figure it out myself. I need the other half of the equation. #Quote by David Levithan
David Yarrow quotes by David     James
#4. Sometimes being brave just means falling in love. #Quote by David James
David Yarrow quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#5. My life more civil is and free
Than any civil polity
Ye princes, keep your realms
And circumscribed power
Not wide as are my dreams
Nor rich as is this hour #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
David Yarrow quotes by David Nalbandian
#6. Sometimes the ATP puts a lot of pressure on the players and sometimes you get injured because you play on a dangerous surface. Nothing happens, no one pays for that. #Quote by David Nalbandian
David Yarrow quotes by David Foster Wallace
#7. What Cantor's Diagonal Proof does is generate just such a number, which let's call R. The proof is both ingenious and beautiful-a total confirmation of art's compresence in pure math. First, have another look at the above table. We can let the integral value of R be whatever X we want; it doesn't matter. But now look at the table's very first row. We're going to make sure R's first post-decimal digit, a, is a different number from the table's a1. It's easy to do this even though we don't know what particular number a1 is: let's specify that a=(a1-1) unless a1 happens to be 0, in which case a=9. Now look at the table's second row, because we're going to do the same thing for R's second digit b: b=(b2-1), or b=9 if b2=0. This is how it works. We use the same procedure for R's third digit c and the table's c3, for d and d4, for e and e5, and so on, ad inf. Even though we can't really construct the whole R (just as we can't really finish the whole infinite table), we can still see that this real number R=X.abcdefhi... is going to be demonstrably different from every real number in the table. It will differ from the table's 1st Real in its first post-decimal digit, from the 2nd Real in its second digit, from the 3rd Real in its third digit,...and will, given the Diagonal Method here, differ from the table's Nth Real in its nth digit. Ergo R is not-cannot be-included in the above infinite table; ergo the infinite table is not exhaustive of all the real numbers; ergo (by the rules o #Quote by David Foster Wallace
David Yarrow quotes by David Graeber
#8. if you really care about getting something done, the most efficient way to go about it is obviously to allocate tasks by ability and give people whatever they need to do them. #Quote by David Graeber
David Yarrow quotes by David Talbot
#9. I have enormous respect for Steve Johnson, and as I've told him, Feed was one of the inspirations for Salon. They were up there before we were. And also for Joey and the Suck people. #Quote by David Talbot
David Yarrow quotes by David Hockney
#10. With watercolour, you can't cover up the marks. There's the story of the construction of the picture, and then the picture might tell another story as well. #Quote by David Hockney
David Yarrow quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#11. I did not know that mankind were suffering for want of gold. I have seen a little of it. I know that it is very malleable, but not so malleable as wit. A grain of gold will gild a great surface, but not so much as a grain of wisdom. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
David Yarrow quotes by David McCullough
#12. Of those who had been eyewitnesses at Kill Devil Hills the morning of the 17th, John T. Daniels was much the most effusive about what he had felt. "I like to think about it now," he would say in an interview years later. "I like to think about that first airplane the way it sailed off in the air . . . as pretty as any bird you ever laid your eyes on. I don't think I ever saw a prettier sight in my life." But it would never have happened, Daniels also stressed, had it not been for the two "workingest boys" he ever knew. It wasn't luck that made them fly; it was hard work and common sense; they put their whole heart and soul and all their energy into an idea and they had the faith. #Quote by David McCullough
David Yarrow quotes by David Quammen
#13. One further factor, possibly the most crucial, was inherent to the way SARS-CoV affects the human body: Symptoms tend to appear in a person before, rather than after, that person becomes highly infectious. The headache, the fever, and the chills - maybe even the cough - precede the major discharge of virus toward other people. Even among some of the superspreaders, in 2003, this seems to have been true. That order of events allowed many SARS cases to be recognized, hospitalized, and placed in isolation before they hit their peak of infectivity. The downside was that hospital staff took the first big blasts of secondary infection; the upside was that those blasts generally weren't emitted by people still feeling healthy enough to ride a bus or a subway to work. This was an enormously consequential factor in the SARS episode - not just lucky but salvational. #Quote by David Quammen
David Yarrow quotes by David Hume
#14. There is an inconvenience which attends all abstruse reasoning. that it may silence, without convincing an antagonist, and requires the same intense study to make us sensible of its force, that was at first requisite for its invention. When we leave our closet, and engage in the common affairs of life, its conclusions seem to vanish, like the phantoms of the night on the appearance of the morning; and 'tis difficult for us to retain even that conviction, which we had attain'd with difficulty. #Quote by David Hume
David Yarrow quotes by David Gilmour
#15. I've been in The Who, I've been in The Beatles and I've been in Pink Floyd! Top that! #Quote by David Gilmour
David Yarrow quotes by David Platt
#16. And ultimately, If you sin against an infinitely holy and eternal God, you are infinitely guilty and worthy of eternal punishment. #Quote by David Platt
David Yarrow quotes by David Livingstone
#17. Death alone will put a stop to my effort! #Quote by David Livingstone
David Yarrow quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#18. If you are cheated out of a single dollar by your neighbor, you do not rest satisfied with knowing that you are cheated, or with saying that you are cheated, or even with petitioning him to pay you your due; but you take effectual steps at once to obtain the full amount, and see that you are never cheated again. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
David Yarrow quotes by David Brinkley
#19. In the nineteenth century, government agencies in Washington had, almost without exception, flatly refused to hire even one female. #Quote by David Brinkley
David Yarrow quotes by David J. Lieberman
#20. The fields of clinical psychology and psychiatry exist specifically to help the emotionally unstable become more stable and lead happier, healthier lives. Unlike in the eras of Vincent Van Gogh and Abraham Lincoln, there is now professional help available for those who suffer from emotional illness. Treatment may require therapy or even medication, but hope is now available every single day in practically every city in the civilized world. #Quote by David J. Lieberman
David Yarrow quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#21. I think the fall from the farmer to the operative as great and memorable as that from the man to the farmer. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
David Yarrow quotes by David Brudnoy
#22. Condemnatory conservatism isn't anything I'm interested in. #Quote by David Brudnoy
David Yarrow quotes by David Mack
#23. Don't tell me," Burnham cut in. "It's fascinating." Spock said nothing in response, but he could not help but appear mildly put out. #Quote by David Mack
David Yarrow quotes by David Roberts
#24. I went to the Grand Canyon with my family when I was about 8 years old, and I had a very blah experience. I think the scale of it is too huge - you don't appreciate it. #Quote by David Roberts
David Yarrow quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#25. I have heard of many going astray even in the village streets, when the darkness was so thick you could cut it with a knife, as the saying is ... #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
David Yarrow quotes by Paul McCartney
#26. My record producer [David Kahne] said the major record labels these days are like dinosaurs sitting around discussing the asteroid. They know it's going to hit. They don't know when, they don't know where it's coming from. But it's sort of hit already. With iTunes, and all of that. #Quote by Paul McCartney
David Yarrow quotes by Kiersten White
#27. Anything I can do to help?"
"Convince the entire Dark Court to abandon their queen's plan and join Team Leave Now?"
"I was thinking more along the lines of recording tonight's Easton Heights rerun so that hour was freed up for you." She held up her hands at my outraged look of horror. "Kidding. Kidding. I've been helping David and Raquel set up emergency places for all the faerie land transplants and IPCA refugees who aren't leaving. We'll get everything ready here. You focus on the faerie stuff."
"Can't I be in charge of the DVR, instead?" I stood and turned around. Arianna swatted my butt as I walked away. I wanted to laugh, but it was all I could do not to hyperventilate. Everything was finally happening.
I hadn't made it very far back up the path when Reth stepped out of the woods, scaring me half to death. "Way to make an entrance," I said, my hand over my rapidly beating heart.
"You need to come with me."
"Did you know I have to open the gate tonight? Never mind. Don't answer. If you did know, I'll want to kick you in the nuts for not telling me, and I don't have time to do it. Good news is I'm going to save your life. #Quote by Kiersten White

David Yarrow quotes by David Angell
#33. On the most basic level, men and women are the same. We both need to love and be loved, to have someone we feel we matter to, and who matters to us. #Quote by David Angell
