Inoperable Brain quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#1. What I mean is this: Prozac has rather minimal side effects, the lithium has a few more, but basically the pair keep me functioning as a sane human being, at least most of the time. And I can't help feeling that anything that works so effectively, that's so transformative, has got to be hurting me at another end, maybe sometime further down the road. I can just hear the words inoperable brain cancer being whispered to me by some physician twenty years from now. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Inoperable Brain quotes by David Mitchell
#2. Ayrs let long moments fall away. 'You're young, Frobisher, you're rich, you've got a brain, and by all accounts you're not wholly repugnant. I'm not sure why you stay on here.'…
…Couldn't say if Ayrs felt humor, pity, nostalgia or scorn…Jocasta seemed angry with me. 'What?' I hissed.
'My husband loves you,' said the wife, dressing. #Quote by David Mitchell
Inoperable Brain quotes by Dylan Thomas
#3. In the beginning was the secret brain.
The brain was celled and soldered in the thought #Quote by Dylan Thomas
Inoperable Brain quotes by Alice Sebold
#4. Her brain was a storm, her usual insight gone. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Inoperable Brain quotes by Jill Bolte Taylor
#5. As information processing machines, our ability to process data about the external world begins at the level of sensory perception. Although most of us are rarely aware of it, our sensory receptors are designed to detect information at the energy level. Because everything around us - the air we breathe, even the materials we use to build with, are composed of spinning and vibrating atomic particles, you and I are literally swimming in a turbulent sea of electromagnetic fields. We are part of it. We are enveloped within in, and through our sensory apparatus we experience what is.
Each of our sensory systems is made up of a complex cascade of neurons that process the incoming neural code from the level of the receptor to specific areas within the brain. Each group of neurons along the cascade alters or enhances the code, and passes it on to the next set of cells in the system, which further defines and refines the message. By the time the code reaches the outermost portion of our brain, the higher levels of the cerebral cortex, we become conscious of the stimulation. However, if any of the cells along the pathway fail in their ability to function normally, then the final perception is skewed away from normal reality. #Quote by Jill Bolte Taylor
Inoperable Brain quotes by Mervyn Peake
#6. The crags of the mountain were ruthless in the moon; cold, deadly and shining. Distance had no meaning. The tangled glittering of the forest roof rolled away, but its furthermost reaches were brought suddenly nearer in a bound by the terrifying effect of proximity in the mountain that they swarmed. The mountain was neither far away nor was it close at hand. It arose starkly, enormously, across the lens of the eye. The hollow itself was a cup of light. Every blade of the grass was of consequence, and the few scattered stones held an authority that made their solid, separate marks upon the brain - each one with its own unduplicated shape: each rising brightly from the ink of its own spilling. #Quote by Mervyn Peake
Inoperable Brain quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#7. What I do know is I've got a brain filled with jokes I can't forget - like a tumor the size of a grapefruit inside of my skull. And I know that eventually even dog shit turns white and stops stinking, but I have this permanent head filled with crap I've been trained my whole life to think is funny. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Inoperable Brain quotes by Nicholas G. Carr
#8. The book, I think, like the map before it, like the clock, created or help create a revolution in the human mind in the way our habits of mind and ultimately the way we use our brains. #Quote by Nicholas G. Carr
Inoperable Brain quotes by R.U. Sirius
#9. All the information in the universe, plus several bits from other dimensions that I'm still trying to sort out, have just been mainlined into my nervous system. The shards from a googleplex of infobits seem to be stuck in the part of my brain just above the pineal gland. Yes, I've just been reading Kenji Siratori again. This is my idea of a good time. #Quote by R.U. Sirius
Inoperable Brain quotes by Aysha Taryam
#10. What social-media really becomes after years of use is a constant stream of information both verbal and visual that at first drenches the mind, quenching its thirst for knowledge, and subduing its curiosity slowly but surly transforms into a torrent that renders the brain heavy and the mind restless. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Inoperable Brain quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#11. Like everybody else in the cocktail lounge, he was softening his brain with alcohol. This was a substance produced by a tiny creature called yeast. Yeast organisms ate sugar and excreted alcohol. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Inoperable Brain quotes by Richard Foth
#12. When Scripture says, "As a man thinks, so is he," it is raw truth. How we approach life and react to its vagaries determines the bulk of our character. How we love is locked into how we think about it. What angers us is triggered by how we think. It is between our ears that we decide how easily offended we will be. When it comes to harsh words from others, whether my skin absorbs like cotton or deflects like Teflon is a decision I make. All of that happens in a three-pound organ five-and-a-half inches across called my brain. In a very real sense, my world begins and ends between my ears. I don't have to be brain-dead to be brain-defeated. #Quote by Richard Foth
Inoperable Brain quotes by Alice Rachel
#13. And she's crying so hard. And I'm still blinking, but I've stopped breathing. My hands are clenched with hatred, so much hatred! Like poison in my veins, coursing to my brain, rotting everything, everything on its way. All the good feelings rotting away." - Stephen Richards #Quote by Alice Rachel
Inoperable Brain quotes by Rachael Lucas
#14. And I think for a moment, because people don't actually ask that very often. They tell me what they think I feel because they've read it in books, or they say incredible things like "autistic people have no sense of humour or imagination or empathy" when I'm standing right there beside them (and one day I'm going to point out that that is more than a little bit rude, not to mention Not Even True) or they -- even worse -- talk to me like I'm about five, and can't understand.
"It's like living with all your senses turned up to full volume all the time," I say. "And it's like living life in a different language, so you can't ever quite relax because even when you think you're fluent it's still using a different part of your brain so by the end of the day you're exhausted. #Quote by Rachael Lucas
Inoperable Brain quotes by Murray Pura
#15. Why may you not kiss me?" she had demanded. "Am I a corpse?"

"Of course not."

"Do you find me less attractive now that weather and wind have scoured the bloom from my cheeks?"

"Skaytha, it's nothing like that. If anything you are more beautiful now than when we lived on Skyrl. Often enough I have no breath when I look at you. You rob me of any other thoughts."

"So you're afraid my kisses will take what little brain you have left?"

"I'm afraid the angels will do something I don't want them to do if I fly in the face of their commands, commands I can only assume are divine as well as angelic."

"Did you ever think to ask them the reasons behind their demands?"

"When it is an angel I just want to get out of the conversation alive or at least without being struck dumb. So I don't prolong the chat."

"You might have wanted my kisses more than that. If you had any romance in you you'd have told them you were ready to fight ten legions of angels for my love."

Hawk had reached out to hold her. "If I'd told them that they might have taken me up on it. Angels are not just useful for gallant flourishes the moment you declare your intention to battle all comers for the woman you love. Angels burn like fire and blaze like a hundred suns – they strike fear in my heart."

She had pulled away from his embrace and jumped to her feet. "Oh, no, you don't. If I'm not good enough to kiss I'm #Quote by Murray Pura
Inoperable Brain quotes by Greg Carlson
#16. No other species flees from boredom with as much urgency as we do. We are far more eager to do brain work than we are to do physical labor. #Quote by Greg Carlson
Inoperable Brain quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#17. Being torn apart by far too many loyalties that could not possibly live together in the same brain. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Inoperable Brain quotes by Felicity Jones
#18. I'm too much left brain. I very much have an emotional response to things; I love literature and films and storytelling. I need to nourish my right side, it doesn't get a lot of exercise. #Quote by Felicity Jones
Inoperable Brain quotes by Regina Carlysle
#19. She'd best get the hell outta here pretty damn quick.
Finally he stood and tossed some cash on the littered table then glanced at the pretty lady shifter. He frowned and gave Joe a look. "With the hunt going down tonight, it might be a good idea to give the little blonde a heads up. She needs to hit the road."
When Joe nodded, Mad shrugged, determined to put some distance between himself and the sexy stranger. "Best take off and see what's what, Joe. You take care now."
He felt the woman's eyes on him as he made his way to the door and stopped to return her stare.
A sound similar to white noise buzzed in his ears and fairly rattled his brain then stopped almost as soon as it started. Chills raced over his arms.
What the fuck? #Quote by Regina Carlysle
Inoperable Brain quotes by G. Frank Lawlis
#20. According to a recent study, depression is described as being the disease most destructive to humankind, largely because of the devastation it wreaks on our lives ... Yes, we could set up our minds to ignore our feelings and barricade ourselves from the winds and dust of the brain pattern. And we could become like robots, refusing to consider the passion and joys that could be ours. But then, we also might as well be dead. #Quote by G. Frank Lawlis
Inoperable Brain quotes by Micalea Smeltzer
#21. But matters of that heart aren't easily won by the brain. In fact, they're never won. #Quote by Micalea Smeltzer
Inoperable Brain quotes by Delia Ephron
#22. To the night version of her (mother) I owe free-floating anxiety. I am no longer a child in an unsafe home, but anxiety became habit. My brain is conditioned. I worry. I recheck everything obsessively. Is the seat belt fastened, are the reservations correct, is my passport in my purse? Have I done something wrong? Have I said something wrong? I'm sorry - whatever happened must be my fault. Is everyone all right, and if they aren't, how can I step in? That brilliant serenity prayer: God give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. To all the children of alcoholics I want to say, Good luck with that. If I don't do it myself, it won't get done (this belief is often rewarded in this increasingly incompetent world). Also, I panic easily. I am not the person you want sitting in the exit row of an airplane. And distrust. Just in general, distrust. Irony.
Irony, according to the dictionary, is the use of comedy to distance oneself from emotion. I developed it as a child lickety-split. Irony was armor, a way to stick it to Mom. You think you can get me? Come on, shoot me, aim that arrow straight at my heart. It can't make a dent because I'm wearing irony. #Quote by Delia Ephron
Inoperable Brain quotes by Ray Kurzweil
#23. By the time we get to the 2040s, we'll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that's singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter. #Quote by Ray Kurzweil
Inoperable Brain quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#24. Nature even on the most local of scales made a mockery of information technology. Even augmented by tech, the human brain was paltry, infinitesimal, in comparison to the universe. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Inoperable Brain quotes by Tom Holt
#25. In his dream, George Stetchkin was in the dock at the Central Criminal Court, accused of the murder of nine million innocent brain cells. The usher was showing the jury the alleged murder weapon, an empty Bison Brand wodka bottle. Then the judge glared at him over the rims of his spectacles and sentenced him to the worst hangover of his life. #Quote by Tom Holt
Inoperable Brain quotes by Lara Adrian
#26. Maybe she should cut the guy a little slack, [ ... ] Maybe Thorne had been a no-show because something bad happened to him on the job.
What if he'd been injured in the line of duty and didn't come by as promised because he was incapacitated in some way? Maybe he hadn't called to apologize or to explain his absence because he physically couldn't.
Right. And maybe she had checked her brain into her panties from the second she first laid eyes on the man. #Quote by Lara Adrian
Inoperable Brain quotes by E. Jean Carroll
#27. Libraries are the latest fashion for the brain. #Quote by E. Jean Carroll
Inoperable Brain quotes by Antonio Damasio
#28. In 'Self Comes to Mind' I pay a lot of attention to simple creatures without brains or minds, because those 'cartooned abstractions of who we are' operate on precisely the same principles that we do. #Quote by Antonio Damasio
Inoperable Brain quotes by Russell Simmons
#29. I don't use my brain about the creative thing. From a business standpoint, I instinctively do things: when I get something right, it's never because I use my brain. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Inoperable Brain quotes by George Lakoff
#30. You can't understand Twenty-first-Century Politics with an Eighteenth-Century Brain. #Quote by George Lakoff
Inoperable Brain quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#31. Science literacy is less about what you know and more about how your brain is wired for asking questions. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Inoperable Brain quotes by Ashley Mardell
#32. Once upon a time, there was a princess. All of her life the king and queen told her that princesses behaved like ladies, wore beautiful dresses, trained in proper manners and elegance, and were to always wait for a handsome prince to come and save them if ever needed. Princes behaved like gentlemen, wore the finest suites, trained in swordsmanship and sailing, and were always ready to save a princess. This was the perfect formula for a "happily ever after", or at least that's what her parents always told her. What if they were wrong? Could her "happily ever after" look different? One day, this particular human found herself to be in a bit of a pickle. She somehow ended up in the den of a vicious, multi-headed, fire-breathing dragon. She was not about to wait around for a prince to save her, partly because she didn't have time, and partly because she didn't need a prince. She had no sword, no shield, and no idea what to do. (...) She behaved with nobility, wore the most impenetrable armor, wielded her weapon with stength, trained her brain and her body, and never ever waited to be saved. She could slay dragons and fo to afternoon tea with the queen in the same day. She could marry a princess. She was herself, and she lived happily ever after. #Quote by Ashley Mardell
Inoperable Brain quotes by Kody Keplinger
#33. Don't ask where I got this idea, because I couldn't tell you, but I knew precisely where we were going, and I was sure that this might officially make me a slut. But when we reached the door of the unused janitor's closet, I had no feeling of shame… not yet, at least.
I grasped the doorknob and noticed Wesley's eyes narrow with suspicion. I yanked open the door, checked that no one was watching, and gestured for him to go inside. Wesley walked into the tiny closet, and I followed, shutting the door stealthily behind us.
"Something tells me this isn't about The Scarlet Letter," he said, and even in the dark I knew he was grinning.
"Be quiet."
This time he met me halfway. His hands tangled in my hair and mine clawed at his forearms. We kissed violently, and my back slammed against the wall. I heard a mop-or maybe a broom-topple over, but my brain barely registered the sound as one of Wesley's hands moved to my hip, holding me closer to him. He was so much taller than me that I had to tilt my head back almost all the way to meet his kiss. His lips pressed hard against mine, and I let my hands explore his biceps.
The smell of his cologne, rather than the lonely, stale air of the closet, filled my senses.
We wrestled in the darkness for a while before I felt his hand insistently lifting the hem of my T-shirt. With a gasp, I pulled away from the kiss and grabbed his wrist. "No… not now."
"Then when?" Wesley asked in my ear, still pinning me to the #Quote by Kody Keplinger
Inoperable Brain quotes by Winifred Gallagher
#34. Recently, the search for what he calls "the splinters that make up different attention problems" has taken Castellanos in a new direction. First, he explains that your brain is far less concerned with your brilliant ideas or searing emotions than with its own internal "gyroscopic busyness," which consumes 65 percent of its total energy. Every fifty seconds, its activity fluctuates, causing what he calls a "brownout." No one knows the purpose of these neurological events, but Castellanos has a thesis: the clockwork pulses enable the brain's circuits to stay "logged on" and available to communicate with one another, even when they're not being used. "Imagine you're a cabdriver on your day off," Castellanos says. "You don't need to use your workday circuits on a Sunday, but to keep those channels open, your brain sends a ping through them every minute or so. The fluctuations are the brain's investment in maintaining its circuits online. #Quote by Winifred Gallagher
Inoperable Brain quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#35. If the Romans could have fortified their cities the way the human brain fortifies itself, we'd still be wearing togas. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
