History Of The Earth quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#1. Meanwhile the doctor in Kaitaia had made known to the Education Dept the behaviour patterns of the Rusts in Te Hapua. The Dept always interfered in the private lives of teachers. Break up in marriage was not to be tolerated and an intervention of this authority forced the Rusts to report to Parawera School in the Waikato. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
History Of The Earth quotes by Ken Robinson
#2. It's often said that we have to save the planet. I'm not so sure. The Earth has been around for almost five billion years, and it has another five billion years to run before it crashes into the sun. As far as we know, modern human beings like us emerged less than two hundred thousand years ago. If you imagine the whole history of the Earth as one year, we showed up at less than one minute to midnight on December 31. The danger is not to the planet, but to the conditions of our own survival on it. The Earth may well conclude that it tried humanity and is not impressed. Bacteria are much less trouble, which may be why they've survived for billions of years. #Quote by Ken Robinson
History Of The Earth quotes by Charlie Munger
#3. You could argue that [the decline of public schools] is one of the major disasters in our lifetimes. We took one of the greatest successes in the history of the earth and turned it into one of the greatest disasters in the history of the earth. #Quote by Charlie Munger
History Of The Earth quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#4. I can only tell where I feel most at home, which is in the erosional landscape of the red rock desert of southern Utah, where the Colorado River cuts through sandstone and the geologic history of the Earth is exposed: our home in Castle Valley. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
History Of The Earth quotes by Rachel Carson
#5. We have been troubled about the world, and had almost lost faith in man; it helps to think about the long history of the earth, and of how life came to be. And when we think in terms of millions of years, we are not so impatient that our own problems be solved tomorrow. #Quote by Rachel Carson
History Of The Earth quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#6. There's always one, isn't there? Stryker asked rhetorically. In every house, there was always one malcontent jealous prick out to destroy everyone else just for spite. The entire history of the earth was written in the blood of those betrayed by the very people they'd foolishly trusted. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
History Of The Earth quotes by Bernhard Von Cotta
#7. In the course of the history of the earth innumerable events have occurred one after another, causing changes of states, all with certain lasting consequences. This is the basis of our developmental law, which, in a nutshell, claims that the diversity of phenomena is a necessary consequence of the accumulation of the results of all individual occurrences happening one after another ... The current state of the earth, thus, constitutes the as yet most diverse final result, which of course represents not a real but only a momentary end-point. #Quote by Bernhard Von Cotta
History Of The Earth quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#8. In the history of the earth, the sun remains still. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
History Of The Earth quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#9. How wonderful it is that we believe in modern revelation. I cannot get over the feeling that if revelation were needed anciently, when life was simple, that revelation is also needed today, when life is complex. There never was a time in the history of the earth when men needed revelation more than they need it now. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
History Of The Earth quotes by Robert Fisk
#10. The cedars 'know the history of the earth better than history itself.' If this was so, it was little wonder that they had clung to life only here, up in these high altitudes where the mountains, ice and wind ensured that the Lebanese who so often took the name of the cedars in vain would rarely appear. #Quote by Robert Fisk
History Of The Earth quotes by Jean-Andre De Luc
#11. I am here tracing the History of the Earth itself, from its own Monuments. #Quote by Jean-Andre De Luc
History Of The Earth quotes by Theodosius Dobzhansky
#12. Evolution as a process that has always gone on in the history of the earth can only be doubted by those who are ignorant of the evidence or are resistant to evidence, owing to emotional blocks or plain bigotry. #Quote by Theodosius Dobzhansky
History Of The Earth quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#13. I'm absolutely convinced that the very small global warming we are experiencing is the result of natural causes. It's a cyclical phenomenon in the history of the Earth. The role of man is very small, almost negligible. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
History Of The Earth quotes by Bal Gangadhar Tilak
#14. The geologist takes up the history of the earth at the point where the archaeologist leaves it, and carries it further back into remote antiquity. #Quote by Bal Gangadhar Tilak
History Of The Earth quotes by James E. Faust
#15. We hear many persuasive voices demanding freedom from restrictions, particularly from moral restraints. However, we learn from the history of the earth that any successful society has had boundaries. #Quote by James E. Faust
History Of The Earth quotes by Georges Cuvier
#16. Why has not anyone seen that fossils alone gave birth to a theory about the formation of the earth, that without them, no one would have ever dreamed that there were successive epochs in the formation of the globe. #Quote by Georges Cuvier
History Of The Earth quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#17. We may affirm of Mr. Buffon, that which has been said of the chemists of old; though he may have failed in attaining his principal aim, of establishing a theory, yet he has brought together such a multitude of facts relative to the history of the earth, and the nature of its fossil productions, that curiosity finds ample compensation, even while it feels the want of conviction. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
History Of The Earth quotes by Neil Shubin
#18. Take the entire 4.5-billion-year history of the earth and scale it down to a single year, with January 1 being the origin of the earth and midnight on December 31 being the present. Until June, the only organisms were single-celled microbes, such as algae, bacteria, and amoebae. The first animal with a head did not appear until October. The first human appears on December 31. We, like all the animals and plants that have ever lived, are recent crashers at the party of life on earth. #Quote by Neil Shubin
History Of The Earth quotes by Jerry Bridges
#19. Had sin never entered the world it still would be fitting for us to fear God - to bow in reverential awe before Him. We would gladly join the seraphs in calling out, "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." But sin did enter the world - and because of His holiness, God now reveals Himself as the hater of sin and the just punisher of sinners. But He also reveals Himself in the person of His Son as a merciful and gracious Savior. Our awe of His holiness can be joined with amazement at His love. Reflect on these words from John #Quote by Jerry Bridges
History Of The Earth quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#20. The number of people in the world engaged in this search for catastrophic impactors totals one or two dozen. How long into the future are you willing to protect Homo sapiens on Earth? Before you answer that question, take a detour to Arizona's Meteor Crater during your next vacation. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
History Of The Earth quotes by Henrietta Newton Martin
#21. History has been witness to heart wrenching barbaric violations from time immemorial throughout the world where battles and wars have been fought, not just among States but even the Big Powers, megalomania, 'folie de grandeur' .All this lead us only to understand of the meager contribution to the subject of International Humanitarian Laws, and all these failures have built and would continue to lay precedents and build the laws. #Quote by Henrietta Newton Martin
History Of The Earth quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#22. ...but there were four things I taught Walter to consider: 1) That it was Cain who built the first City, 2) That there is a true Science in the World called Scientia Umbrarum which, as to the publick teaching of it, has been suppressed but which the proper Artificer must comprehend, 3) That Architecture aims at Eternity and must contain the Eternal Powers: not only our Altars and Sacrifices, but the Forms of our Temples, must be mysticall, 4) That the miseries (If the present Life, and the Barbarities of Mankind, the fatall disadvantages we are all under and the Hazard we run of being eternally Undone, lead the True Architect not to Harmony or to Rationall Beauty but to quite another Game. Why, do we not believe the very Infants to be the Heirs of Hell and Children of the Devil as soon as they are disclos'd to the World? I declare that I build my Churches firmly on this Dunghil Earth and with a full Conception of Degenerated Nature. I have only room to add: there is a mad-drunken Catch, Hey ho! The Devil is dead! If that be true, I have been in the wrong Suit all my Life. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
History Of The Earth quotes by Helene Cixous
#23. It is because of this sea between us. The earth has never, up to now, separated us. But, ever since yesterday, there has been something in this nonetheless real, perfectly Atlantic, salty, slightly rough sea that has cast a spell on me. And every time I think about Promethea, I see her crossing this great expanse by boat and soon, alas, a storm comes up, my memory clouds over, in a flash there are shipwrecks, I cannot even cry out, my mouth is full of saltwater sobs. I am flooded with vague, deceptive recollections, I am drowning in my imagination in tears borrowed from the most familiar tragedies, I wish I had never read certain books whose poison is working in me. Has this Friday, perhaps, thrown a spell on me? But spells only work if you catch them. I have caught the Tragic illness. If only Promethea would make me some tea I know I would find some relief. But that is exactly what is impossible. And so, today, I am sinning.
I am sinking beneath reality. I am weighted down with literature. That is my fate. Yet I had the presence of mind to start this parenthesis, the only healthy moment in these damp, feverish hours.
All this to try to come back to the surface of our book...
Phone me quickly, Promethea, get me out of this parenthesis fast!) #Quote by Helene Cixous
History Of The Earth quotes by Frances Beinecke
#24. Instead of going to the ends of the Earth - and plumbing the depths of the oceans - to squeeze out every last drop of oil, we need, instead, to do everything we can to reduce the risks of offshore oil and gas production. #Quote by Frances Beinecke
History Of The Earth quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#25. Is it not peculiar that nearly all of the great philosophers and psychologists have always paid attention to the earth and nothing but the earth? Would it not be more sublime to lift our eyes from this crumb, and instead of considering a speck of dust in the universe, to turn our attention to space itself? #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
History Of The Earth quotes by Barack Obama
#26. For all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate. Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice. #Quote by Barack Obama
History Of The Earth quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#27. Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first, the most basic, expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God's help, it will continue to be. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
History Of The Earth quotes by Dita Von Teese
#28. The prosecutor uttered the party line that would distinguish revue from burlesque for the next thirty years. The difference is movement. On Broadway, unadorned female figures are used to artistic advantage in tableaux. They do not move. #Quote by Dita Von Teese
History Of The Earth quotes by Heidi Montag
#29. A lot of miracles have happened in my life to take me here, and to me, the reason why we're all on this earth is for God, and that's the way I live my life. #Quote by Heidi Montag
History Of The Earth quotes by Dean Koontz
#30. People have lost their history, the what and how and why of things. They know so little of the places where they live. #Quote by Dean Koontz
History Of The Earth quotes by N. T. Wright
#31. the story the Psalms tell is the story Jesus came to complete. It is the story of the creator God taking his power and reigning, ruling on earth as in heaven, delighting the whole creation by sorting out its messes and muddles, its injuries and injustices, once and for all. #Quote by N. T. Wright
History Of The Earth quotes by Joan Fontaine
#32. Being a woman, I have found the road rougher than had I been born a man. Different defenses, different codes of ethics, different approaches to problems and personalities are a woman's lot. I have preferred to shun what is known as feminine wiles, the subterfuge of subtlety, reliance on tears and coquetry to shape my way. I am forthright, often blunt. I have learned to be a realist despite my romantic, emotional nature. I have no illusions that age, the rigors of my profession, disappointments, and unfulfilled dreams have not left their mark.

I am proud that I have carved my path on earth almost entirely by my own efforts, proud that I have compromised in my career only when I had no other recourse, when financial or contractual commitments dictated. Proud that I have never been involved in a physical liaison unless I was deeply attracted or in love. Proud that, whatever my worldly goods may be, they have been achieved by my own labors. #Quote by Joan Fontaine
History Of The Earth quotes by Patrice Lumumba
#33. History will have its say one day.
Not the history they teach in Brussels, Paris, Washington or the United Nations but the history taught in the country set free from colonialism and its puppet rulers.
Africa will write her own history and it will be a history of glory and dignity. #Quote by Patrice Lumumba
History Of The Earth quotes by Steve Yzerman
#34. Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings. #Quote by Steve Yzerman
History Of The Earth quotes by Abdu'l- Baha
#35. We ask God to endow human souls with justice so that they may be fair and may strive to provide for the comfort of all that each member of humanity may pass his life in the utmost comfort and welfare. Then this material world will become the very paradise of the Kingdom this elemental earth will be in a heavenly state and all the servants of God will live in the utmost joy happiness and gladness. We must all strive and concentrate all our thoughts in order that such happiness may accrue to the world of humanity. #Quote by Abdu'l- Baha
History Of The Earth quotes by Victor Hugo
#36. Love, the future is thine. Death, I make use of thee, but I hate thee. Citizens, in the future there will be neither darkness nor thunderbolts; neither ferocious ignorance, nor bloody retaliation. As there will be no more Satan, there will be no more Michael. In the future no one will kill any one else, the earth will beam with radiance, the human race will love. The day will come, citizens, when all will be concord, harmony, light, joy and life; it will come, and it is in order that is may come that we are about to die. #Quote by Victor Hugo
History Of The Earth quotes by Marvin Perry
#37. The New Testament was not written by historians with the critical spirit of a Thucydides or a Polybius, but by men moved by the fervor of faith. Under these circumstances, it is understandable that it contains discrepancies, some non historical legends, and polemics. #Quote by Marvin Perry
History Of The Earth quotes by Franklin D. Richards
#38. At Christmastime, the whole Christian world stands still to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Christmas cannot be cut out of the calendar nor out of the heart of the world - it is the supreme festive season of mirth and gladness. Love for God and one another should be the Christmas theme. Such was the divine announcement by the heavenly host that first heralded the good tidings of great joy, 'Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men. #Quote by Franklin D. Richards
History Of The Earth quotes by Gregory Schrempp
#39. Long a topic of interest for history and philosophy of science, the Copernican Revolution more recently has become a favorite symbol for popular science writers. This symbol is used in two main ways, both of which shade easily into the mythic. First, the Copernican Revolution is invoked to mark a point of grand transformation between anthropocentric and objective thinking. Second, many portrayals of the Copernican Revolution heroize its protagonist and ritualize his deed. The Copernican Revolution designates an alleged shift in worldview that took place in the past, but also a sort of personal microcosm of that event - a rite of passage that any mind aspiring to science must undergo. The term "myth" in some usages becomes a near-synonym for pre-Copernican thought - a definition that is maddeningly inadequate even though refreshingly concise. #Quote by Gregory Schrempp
History Of The Earth quotes by Gavin Schmidt
#40. You can get good science out of stupid questions. If someone says the world is flat, maybe in proving them wrong you can calculate the curvature of the Earth more precisely. #Quote by Gavin Schmidt
History Of The Earth quotes by James H. Cone
#41. To sing about freedom and to pray for its coming is not enough. Freedom must be actualized in history by oppressed peoples who accept the intellectual challenge to analyze the world for the purpose of changing it. #Quote by James H. Cone
History Of The Earth quotes by David Hallberg
#42. I love the dancers in the Bolshoi, but all of my Moscow friends are outside the company. A friend introduced me to Vika Gazinskaya, a well-known Russian designer. I met her group. The rest is history. #Quote by David Hallberg
History Of The Earth quotes by Sy Safransky
#43. For what are most of our stories but cartoon versions of the past? Our personal history is the well-worn version of ourselves we've settled for, in which we come across as pitiful stick figures, "bored to death with ourselves and with the world," as don Juan said. #Quote by Sy Safransky
History Of The Earth quotes by Alain De Botton
#44. After 40 (old age for most of man's history), one should strive to be more or less packed and ready to go were the end call to come. #Quote by Alain De Botton
History Of The Earth quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#45. We do not by any means think it desirable that the kingdom of righteousness and peace should be established on earth (because under any circumstances it would be the kingdom of the profoundest mediocrity and Chinaism); we rejoice in all men, who like ourselves love danger, war and adventure, who do not make compromises, nor let themselves be captured, conciliated and stunted; we count ourselves among the conquerors; we ponder over the need of a new order of things, even of a new slavery for every strengthening and elevation of the type "man" also involves a new form of slavery. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
History Of The Earth quotes by Gary Wolf
#46. The history of using mice to stand in for humans in medical experiments is replete with failures. #Quote by Gary Wolf
History Of The Earth quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#47. The Sun, the hearth of affection and life, pours burning love on the delighted earth. #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
History Of The Earth quotes by Edward Gibbon
#48. The sectaries of a persecuted religion, depressed by fear, animated with resentment, and perhaps heated by enthusiasm, are seldom in a proper temper of mind calmly to investigate, or candidly to appreciate, the motives of their enemies, which often escape the impartial and discerning view even of those who are placed at a secure distance from the flames of persecution. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
History Of The Earth quotes by Ray Bradbury
#49. Intuited novels are far more 'true' than all your scribbled data-fact reportage in the history of the world! #Quote by Ray Bradbury
History Of The Earth quotes by Penelope Lively
#50. The question is, shall it or shall it not be linear history. I've always thought a kaleidoscopic view might be an interesting heresey. Shake the tube and see what comes out. Chronology irritates me. There is no chronology inside my head. I am composed of myriad Claudias who spin and mix and part like sparks of sunlight on water. The pack of cards I carry around is forever shuffled and re-shuffled; there is no sequence, everything happens at once. The machines of the new technology, I understand, perform in much the same way: all knowledge is stored, to be summoned up at the flick of a key. They sound, in theory, more efficient. Some of my keys don't work; others demand pass-words, codes, random unlocking sequences. The collective past, curiously, provides these. It is public property, but it is also deeply private. We all look differently at it. My Victorians are not your Victorians. My seventeenth century is not yours. The voice of John Aubrey, of Darwin, of whoever you like, speaks in one tone to me, in another to you. #Quote by Penelope Lively
History Of The Earth quotes by Cat Hellisen
#51. That's all Mother needs to say. Our estate and House Malker's are built on the high cliffs along Pelim's Tooth. The Tooth, like its mirror the Claw, is a pincer of land that juts around the mouth of the Casabi river, making a protected bay.

But the cliff isn't called the Tooth all the time. In fact, most people call it Pelim's Leap.

Not to our faces, of course.

They don't like to remind us that our House has brought the Red Death to Pelimburg's shores before, that we have a history of suicides and ill luck. #Quote by Cat Hellisen
History Of The Earth quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#52. But you know if God should stamp eternity or even judgment on our eyeballs, or if you'd like on the fleshy table of our hearts I am quite convinced we'd be a very, very different tribe of people, God's people, in the world today. We live too much in time, we're too earth bound. We see as other men see, we think as other men think. We invest our time as the world invests it. We're supposed to be a different breed of people. I believe that the church of Jesus Christ needs a new revelation of the majesty of God. We're all going to stand one day, can you imagine it- at the judgment seat of Christ to give an account for the deeds done in the body. This is what- this is the King of kings, and He's the Judge of judges, and it's the Tribunal of tribunals, and there's no court of appeal after it. The verdict is final. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
History Of The Earth quotes by David Spangler
#53. At the heart of world time is the momentum of history. At the heart of personal time is the mystery and wonder of individuality. At the heart of deep, new time is the creative spirit. But at the heart of our time is love. #Quote by David Spangler
History Of The Earth quotes by David Puttnam
#54. In the U.K., the history of regulation, certainly regulation of the media, is one in which, time and again, successive governments lacked the 'bottle' to enforce the powers that were available to them. #Quote by David Puttnam
History Of The Earth quotes by Pierce Brown
#55. Don't you find it peculiar? The human conviction that we are the heirs of history instead of paragraphs that are almost over. #Quote by Pierce Brown
