Norman Sondheimer quotes by Bill Bryson
#6. This is a world where things move at their own pace, including a tiny lift Fortey and I shared with a scholarly looking elderly man with whom Fortey chatted genially and familiarly as we proceeded upwards at about the rate that sediments are laid down.

When the man departed, Fortey said to me: "That was a very nice chap named Norman who's spent forty-two years studying one species of plant, St. John's wort. He retired in 1989, but he still comes in every week."

"How do you spend forty-two years on one species of plant?" I asked.

"It's remarkable, isn't it?" Fortey agreed. He thought for a moment. "He's very thorough apparently." The lift door opened to reveal a bricked over opening. Fortey looked confounded. "That's very strange," he said. "That used to be Botany back there." He punched a button for another floor, and we found our way at length to Botany by means of back staircases and discreet trespass through yet more departments where investigators toiled lovingly over once-living objects. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Norman Sondheimer quotes by John Norman

#8. In the interests of truth, however, I want to make it clear that Norman Bowker was in no way responsible for what happened to Kiowa. Norman did not experience a failure of nerve that night.

Norman Sondheimer quotes by Peter Gellatly
#14. We find the library world, like the real world, impossible to understand on a rational basis. We turn then to the outer reaches of our mind and treat librarianship with the irrationality that it deserves. While we most often turn to humour merely to enjoy ourselves, we do sometimes do so to make a point. That point is simply that the world of librarianship is ridiculous and that we should all take a far less serious view of our work. What we accomplish as librarians is not, after all, likely to change the world."
~ Norman D. Stevens #Quote by Peter Gellatly
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Mailer
#15. The final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Norman Sondheimer quotes by John Norman
#16. It is generally my thesis then to insist on the importance of imagination in sex, to insist that the practice of sex, as performed among human beings, be accorded the same deliberate and playful application of fancy, imagination and intelligence as any other significant human activity. #Quote by John Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by A. Norman Jeffares
#17. How beautiful, how beautiful you streamed upon my sight, In glory and in grandeur, as a gorgeous sunset-light!
How softly, soul-subduing, fell your words upon mine ear, Like low aerial music when some angel hovers near!
What tremulous, faint ecstasy to clasp your hand in mine, Till the darkness fell upon me of a glory too divine!
The air around grew languid with our intermingled breath, And in your beauty's shadow I sank motionless as death.
I saw you not, I heard not, for a mist was on my brain--I only felt that life could give no joy like that again.

And this was love--I knew it not, but blindly floated on, And now I'm on the ocean waste, dark, desolate, alone;
The waves are raging round me-- I'm reckless where they guide; No hope is left to lighten me, no strength to stem the tide.
As a leaf along the torrent, a cloud across the sky, As dust upon the whirlwind, so my life is drifting by. The dream that drank the meteor's light--the form from Heav'n has flown--
The vision and the glory, they are passing--they are gone.
Oh! Love is frantic agony, and life one throb of pain; Yet I would bear its darkest woes to dream again. #Quote by A. Norman Jeffares
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#18. Four things for success: work and pray, think and believe. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale

Grant McKingsley #Quote by Samuel L. Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Jewison
#22. When the small independent film, which depends on its artistic appeal rather than wide commercial distribution by an MPAA member, is now denied access, the playing field becomes unfair and uneven. #Quote by Norman Jewison

Norman Sondheimer quotes by David Wolfe
#30. The raw-foodist Dr. Norman Walker had two series of six colon cleanses done every year in the second half of his life - he lived to be at least 109 (some say older). I've found that one colonic every four to six months has been effective for me - although I am sure that more would do me good. I always recommend starting with a series of four to six sessions even if you think you do not need it. The primary goal of colon hydrotherapy is to empty the bowels completely in order for the lymph system to drain. The secondary goal is to remove encrusted mucus (which feeds unwanted parasites and poisons the system) from the inner intestinal lining. The third goal is to allow the liver to flush and release. #Quote by David Wolfe
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Jessye Norman
#31. My parents said to us, practically on a daily basis, that we were as good as anyone else on this earth, and that we would simply have to work harder in order to show that. #Quote by Jessye Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Jessye Norman
#32. If you send up a weather vane or put your thumb up in the air every time you want to do something different, to find out what people are going to think about it, you're going to limit yourself. That's a very strange way to live. #Quote by Jessye Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman F. Cantor
#33. The Church [in the Middle Ages] was a congeries of ideas, practices, personnel, and artistic and literary forms that were central to the environment he lived in, part of the air he breathed. Just so do we accept Wall Street brokers and Harvard professors, in spite of their corruptions and limitations and defects, as overwhelmingly admirable groups to which we would be happy to belong. #Quote by Norman F. Cantor
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Doidge
#34. To my mind, every emergency room should have a low-intensity laser for people with stroke or head trauma. This therapy would be especially important for head injuries, because there is no effective drug therapy for traumatic brain injury. Uri Oron has also shown that low-intensity laser light can reduce scar formation in animals that have had heart attacks; perhaps lasers should be used in emergency rooms for cardiac #Quote by Norman Doidge
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Victor Hugo
#35. Letter

You can see it already: chalks and ochers;
Country crossed with a thousand furrow-lines;
Ground-level rooftops hidden by the shrubbery;
Sporadic haystacks standing on the grass;
Smoky old rooftops tarnishing the landscape;
A river (not Cayster or Ganges, though:
A feeble Norman salt-infested watercourse);
On the right, to the north, bizarre terrain
All angular--you'd think a shovel did it.
So that's the foreground. An old chapel adds
Its antique spire, and gathers alongside it
A few gnarled elms with grumpy silhouettes;
Seemingly tired of all the frisky breezes,
They carp at every gust that stirs them up.
At one side of my house a big wheelbarrow
Is rusting; and before me lies the vast
Horizon, all its notches filled with ocean blue;
Cocks and hens spread their gildings, and converse
Beneath my window; and the rooftop attics,
Now and then, toss me songs in dialect.
In my lane dwells a patriarchal rope-maker;
The old man makes his wheel run loud, and goes
Retrograde, hemp wreathed tightly round the midriff.
I like these waters where the wild gale scuds;
All day the country tempts me to go strolling;
The little village urchins, book in hand,
Envy me, at the schoolmaster's (my lodging),
As a big schoolboy sneaking a day off.
The air is pure, the sky smiles; there's a constant
Soft noise of children spelling things alou #Quote by Victor Hugo
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Borlaug
#36. Man seems to insist on ignoring the lessons available from history. #Quote by Norman Borlaug
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Schwarzkopf
#37. I can't say enough about the two Marine divisions. If I use words like 'brilliant,' it would really be an under description of the absolutely superb job that they did in breaching the so-called 'impenetrable barrier.' It was a classic- absolutely classic- military breaching of a very very tough minefield, barbed wire, fire trenches-type barrier. #Quote by Norman Schwarzkopf
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Davies
#38. the Entente Powers, far from aiding Poland, regarded her activities with irritation. Poland won her independence for twenty years by her own efforts under the leadership of Pilsudski. #Quote by Norman Davies
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Reilly Raine
#39. An artist should remain true. Otherwise his talent, like his stomach, grows fat and stuffy. #Quote by Norman Reilly Raine
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Donald Norman
#40. Isn't one of your first exercises in learning how to communicate to write a description of how to tie your shoelaces? The point being that it's basically impossible to use text to show that. #Quote by Donald Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Foster
#41. Architecture is an expression of values. #Quote by Norman Foster
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Reedus
#42. I love smashing stuff. #Quote by Norman Reedus
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Donald A. Norman
#43. A story tells of Henry Ford's buying scrapped Ford cars and having his engineers disassemble them to see which parts failed and which were still in good shape. Engineers assumed this was done to find the weak parts and make them stronger. Nope. Ford explained that he wanted to find the parts that were still in good shape. The company could save money if they redesigned these parts to fail at the same time as the others. #Quote by Donald A. Norman
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Doidge
#44. As we age and plasticity declines, it becomes increasingly difficult for us to change in response to the world, even if we want to. We find familiar types of stimulation pleasurable; we seek out like-minded individuals to associate with, and research shows we tend to ignore or forget, or attempt to discredit, information that does not match our beliefs, or perception of the world, because it is very distressing and difficult to think and perceive in unfamiliar ways. Increasingly the aging individual acts to preserve the structures within, and when there is a mismatch between his internal neurocognitive structures and the world, he seek to change the world. In small ways he begins to micromanage his environment, to control it, and make it familiar. But this process, writ large, often leads whole cultural groups to try to impose their view of the world on other cultures, and they often become violent, especially in the modern world, where globalization has brought different cultures closer together, exacerbating the problem. Wexler's point, then, is that much of the cross-cultural conflict we see is a product of the relative decrease in plasticity.

One could add that totalitarian regimes seem to have an intuitive awareness that it becomes hard for people to change after a certain age, which is why so much effort is made to indoctrinate the young from an early age. #Quote by Norman Doidge
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Lear
#45. But you know, my dad called me the laziest white kid he ever met. When I screamed back at him that he was putting down a race of people to call me lazy, his answer was that's not what he was doing, and that I was also the dumbest white kid he ever met. #Quote by Norman Lear
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Spinrad
#46. It ain't power that corrupts, it's the changes you put your head through getting it. #Quote by Norman Spinrad
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Norman Lewis
#47. I am looking for the people who have always been there, and belong to the places they live. The others I do not wish to see. #Quote by Norman Lewis
Norman Sondheimer quotes by Marsha Norman
#48. I feel that I speak the musical language. #Quote by Marsha Norman
