Refuelling Point quotes by Darynda Jones
#1. Carson," she said when she picked up. I liked it. Clear. Concise. To the point.
I decided to try it myself. "Davidson."
A loud sigh filtered to me. "Charley, you called me. You can't just say Davidson."
"What are you, the phone greeting police? #Quote by Darynda Jones
Refuelling Point quotes by Shaila M. Abdullah
#2. How do you end a story that's not yours? Add another sentence where there is a pause? Infiltrate the story with a comma when really there should have been a period? Punctuate with an exclamation point where a period would have sufficed? What if you kill something breathing and breathe life into something the author wanted to eliminate? How do you get inside the mind of a person who isn't there? Fill the shoes of someone who will never again fill his own? #Quote by Shaila M. Abdullah
Refuelling Point quotes by Holly Estil Cunningham
#3. …let us point out precisely the difficulties of empiricism as a theory of knowledge. First, it begins with two fixed, unchangeable ultimates--mind and matter. Second, it asserts that knowledge is the agreement of ideas with each other, in which case we are not dealing with nature or things at all, and consequently, have left out one of our ultimates. Third, it then asserts (for it is essential that knowledge should somehow or other be connected with things) that knowledge consists in the agreement between an idea and a thing; and in this case we can never tell when the agreement takes place; and furthermore, it is impossible for ideas and things to disagree, for, according to the theory, ideas are copies of things. This means that empiricism can not account for the fact of error. Every theory of knowledge must make a place for error, for, as is evident, error seems to be as industrious as truth.
Consequently, if knowledge actually does take place, if there is such an activity, thing, or relation as knowledge, empiricism fails to give an account of it which is free from contradictions. The moral is, as the stories in our school readers say, don't begin with fixed things, for they beguileth one into inconsistencies. #Quote by Holly Estil Cunningham
Refuelling Point quotes by John Oliver
#4. You don't really know when stand-up material is TV ready; it's just at what point you're willing to let it go and not work on it anymore. I'm not sure there is a point at which you think: 'And that is finished.' #Quote by John Oliver
Refuelling Point quotes by Jim Carrey
#5. My family kinda hit the skids. We were experiencing poverty at that point. We all got a job, where the whole family had to work as security guards and janitors. And I just got angry. #Quote by Jim Carrey
Refuelling Point quotes by Mara Wilson
#6. The idea of living forever makes me uncomfortable, and at this point I've lived long enough and seen enough Twilight Zone episodes to know that there's always a catch. #Quote by Mara Wilson
Refuelling Point quotes by Deirdre Golash
#7. For example, suppose that the pain of a nose-breaking punch is equivalent to the pain of six months in jail. If we can deter one in nine such punches with the threat of three months' imprisonment, and catch half the offenders, we will wind up imposing four three-month sentences to deter one punch - a bad bargain from the utilitarian point of view. #Quote by Deirdre Golash
Refuelling Point quotes by Shawna Yang Ryan
#8. Was it possible this one would be a son too? She hoped so, but not because she favored men. Her husband modeled the seriousness, the stoicism, that she hoped her sons would inherit, but she had nothing to teach a daughter. She could teach her to dream - say, to be a painter, as she herself had been trained - and then teach her to let it go. Teach her to cloister herself in dark hallways, admiring how the light fell through the rice-paper doors while knowing that there was no point in putting it on canvas. #Quote by Shawna Yang Ryan
Refuelling Point quotes by Mark Nepo
#9. The point of experience is not to escape life but to live it. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Refuelling Point quotes by Victor Hugo
#10. The book which the reader has under his eye at this moment is, from one end to the other, as a whole and in detail, whatever may be its intermittences, exceptions and faults, the march from evil to good, from the unjust to the just, from night to day, from appetite to conscience, from rottenness to life, from hell to heaven, from nothingness to God. Point of departure: matter; point of arrival: the soul. The hydra at the beginning, the angel at the end. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Refuelling Point quotes by Ryan Cabrera
#11. There's no point for me to party. I have a girl that I love. I don't need that. #Quote by Ryan Cabrera
Refuelling Point quotes by Nadia Bolz-Weber
#12. And then he went from Saul to Paul, from being the best at being a Jew to being the best at being a Christian. Only, at some point he realized that no one could really pull that off. That's when Paul finally understood grace. #Quote by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Refuelling Point quotes by David Grimm
#13. Pets, he says, are trapped in a state from which there is no escape. "Domestication has essentially created a mentally disabled child bred to be dependent on us. My dogs will never get to the point where they'll become wolves and live the way they're supposed to live." We wonder why our pets are neurotic, he says, why dogs chew themselves raw and cats shred the drapes. "It's because they're not supposed to be living with us. They exist in this netherworld between humans and animals. #Quote by David Grimm
Refuelling Point quotes by Samir Okasha
#14. From a philosophical point of view, Leibniz's most interesting argument was that absolute space conflicted with what he called the principle of the identity of indiscernibles (PII). PII says that if two objects are indiscernible, then they are identical, i.e. they are really one and the same object. What does it mean to call two objects indiscernible? It means that no difference at all can be found between them--they have exactly the same attributes. So if PII is true, then any two genuinely distinct objects must differ in at least one of their attributes--otherwise they would be one, not two. PII is intuitively quite compelling. It certainly is not easy to find an example of two distinct objects that share all their attributes. Even two mass-produced factory goods will normally differ in innumerable ways, even if the differences cannot be detected with the naked eye.

Leibniz asks us to imagine two different universes, both containing exactly the same objects. In Universe One, each object occupies a particular location in absolute space.In Universe Two, each object has been shifted to a different location in absolute space, two miles to the east (for example). There would be no way of telling these two universes apart. For we cannot observe the position of an object in absolute space, as Newton himself admitted. All we can observe are the positions of objects relative to each other, and these would remain unchanged--for all objects are shifted by the same amount. N #Quote by Samir Okasha
Refuelling Point quotes by Melissa Jensen
#15. We'd reached the parking lot. Alex stopped.
"You drive to school?" I demanded.
He gestured me ahead of him through the break in the chain fence. "We don't all live five blocks away," he shot back.
"It's eight, actually."
"Fine,eight. And sometimes I walk."
I pictured the stretch between Willing and Society Hill, where I knew he lived somewhere near Sadie. It was quite a distance, and not a particularly scenic one, especially at seven thirty in the morning. "Yeah? When was the last time?"
He didn't answer immediately, leading the way now between the parked cars. He passed a big Jeep that still had its dealer plates, a low-slung-two-door Lexus, and a sick black BMW that all looked like just the sort of cars he would own. "April of last year," he admitted finally. "But it pissed rain on me the whole time, so that's gotta count for something." He stopped by the dented passenger door of an old green Mustang. "Your carriage, my lady."
"Really? This is your car?"
The door made a very scary sound when he opened it. "It's clean," he snapped, and I realized he'd totally missed my point.
"It's amazing. #Quote by Melissa Jensen

Refuelling Point quotes by Jim Wendler
#17. I remember thinking to myself that if I ever reached a point in my life where I had to walk to get exercise, it might be time to clean out my ears with a gun. #Quote by Jim Wendler
Refuelling Point quotes by Celine Jeanjean
#18. Yes, yes, I won't touch anything. More to the point, someone wants to kill me and take your place as the Viper, right, so do you really think the state of your moustache is important right now?" "You have a lot to learn about the world," he called back as he climbed the stairs. "The state of my moustache has never been more important. #Quote by Celine Jeanjean
Refuelling Point quotes by Connie Willis
#19. Movie Cliche #12: The Moral. A character states the obvious and everybody gets the point. #Quote by Connie Willis
Refuelling Point quotes by Massimo Vignelli
#20. There are people that thinks that type should be expressive. They have a different point of view from mine. #Quote by Massimo Vignelli
Refuelling Point quotes by Mary Roach
#21. People can't anticipate how much they'll miss the natural world until they are deprived of it. I have read about submarine crewmen who haunt the sonar room, listening to whale songs and colonies of snapping shrimp. Submarine captains dispense 'periscope liberty'- a chance to gaze at clouds and birds and coastlines and remind themselves that the natural world still exists. I once met a man who told me that after landing in Christchurch, New Zealand, after a winter at the South Pole research station, he and his companions spent a couple days just wandering around staring in awe at flowers and trees. At one point, one of them spotted a woman pushing a stroller. 'A baby!' he shouted, and they all rushed across the street to see. The woman turned the stroller and ran. #Quote by Mary Roach
Refuelling Point quotes by Elizabeth Nicole
#22. Men don't know when to stop, she's told me over and over. You
have to cut them off or they'll eat 'til their bellies ache - just like a
baby or Mr. Davis's dog.
I figure all this sweet, cutesy stuff works about the same as
dessert - except if you don't cut them off from the cutesy stuff
you end up with a whole different kind of tummy ache. At any rate,
I'm pretty sure Logan Kilgore doesn't know when to quit. Case
in point, Barney Fife and the speeding ticket debacle. #Quote by Elizabeth Nicole
Refuelling Point quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#23. Oh, well. I don't mind helping you to feel guilty if you must. On the other hand, I should point out that of all our various encounters, today is the only time you have favoured me with two civil words in sequence. I found it quite worrying. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Refuelling Point quotes by Pico Iyer
#24. [The Dalai Lama] told me some years ago, "I've made every concession to China, and I've been as open and tolerant as I could, and still things get worse in Tibet." If you look at it from one point of view, as he himself says, his monastic position of forbearance and nonviolence hasn't reaped any benefits. And yet, he's thinking in terms of the long term, of centuries. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Refuelling Point quotes by Charles Darwin
#25. It is certain that there may be extraordinary mental activity with an extremely small absolute mass of nervous matter: thus the wonderfully diversified instincts, mental powers, and affections of ants are notorious, yet their cerebral ganglia are not so large as the quarter of a small pin's head. Under this point of view, the brain of an ant is one of the most marvelous atoms of matter in the world, perhaps more so than the brain of a man. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Refuelling Point quotes by Kyle Idleman
#26. Here's the point: idolatry is the tree from which our sins and struggles grow. #Quote by Kyle Idleman
Refuelling Point quotes by Tom Robbins
#27. The most important thing in life is style. That is the style of one s existence the characteristic mode of one s actions is basically ultimately what matters. For if man defines himself by doing then style is doubly definitive because style describes the doing. The point is this happiness is a learned condition. And since it is learned and self generating it does not depend upon external circumstances for its perpetuation. This throws a very ironic light on content. And underscores the primacy of style. It is content or rather the consciousness of content that fills the void. But the mere presence of content is not enough. It is style that gives content the capacity to absorb us to move us it is style that makes us care. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Refuelling Point quotes by John Niven
#28. If I hadn't had that decade in the music industry and, perhaps more importantly, time to reach the point of being sick and disgusted with it, I wouldn't have written 'Kill Your Friends.' That book gave me my whole career. #Quote by John Niven
Refuelling Point quotes by Neal Boortz
#29. Let me tell you something. You win life's lottery when you're born--especially if you're born in the United States, hands down the best place in the world to begin and live your life. You're an American, the envy of people around the globe. From that point on everything else is gravy--and it's all up to you. #Quote by Neal Boortz
Refuelling Point quotes by Will Smith
#30. I try to speak my points of view about black America, and how I feel about black men and the role that black men should play in their lives with their children and in their lives with their women. #Quote by Will Smith
Refuelling Point quotes by Joseph Conrad
#31. This is why the attainment of proficiency, the pushing of your skill with attention to the most delicate shades of excellence, is a matter of vital concern. Efficiency of a practically flawless kind may be reached naturally in the struggle for bread. But there is something beyond - a higher point, a subtle and unmistakable touch of love and pride beyond mere skill; almost an inspiration which gives to all work that finish which is almost art - which is art. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Refuelling Point quotes by Usama Fayyad
#32. The brain has a good error rate. But, the point is, you can function with that error rate. Animals do a lot of guesswork. #Quote by Usama Fayyad
Refuelling Point quotes by Noel 'Razor' Smith
#33. Gratitude is not a spiritual or moral dessert which we may take or push away according to the whims of the moment, and in either case without material consequences. Gratitude is the very bread and meat of spiritual and moral health, individually and collectively. What was the seed of disintegration that corrupted the heart of the ancient world beyond the point of divine remedy ... ? What was it but ingratitude? #Quote by Noel 'Razor' Smith
Refuelling Point quotes by Sophie Heyman Uliano
#34. Goodness is also about interacting with people, brands, companies and organizations who are invested in sustainable and ethical practices. What's the point of using products that are ruining our Earth? It doesn't make sense. #Quote by Sophie Heyman Uliano
Refuelling Point quotes by Leisa Rayven
#35. Isn't that the point of living? To find the one person in all the world who's your perfect match?" "Actually, Taylor, the point of living is not dying. Romeo and Juliet failed at that part. #Quote by Leisa Rayven
Refuelling Point quotes by Isaac Asimov
#36. That is beside the point. If we only obey those rules that we think are just and reasonable, then no rule will stand, for there is no rule that some will not think is unjust and unreasonable. And if we wish to push our own individual advantage, as we see it, then we will always find reason to believe that some hampering rule is unjust and unreasonable. What starts, then, as a shrewd trick ends in anarchy and disaster, even for the shrewd trickster, since he, too, will not survive the collapse of society." Trevize #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Refuelling Point quotes by Meg Meeker Md
#37. Every one of our sons leaves home at some point. They become men who can return to help us mothers in ways that no other human can. They can teach us how to live our lives better. If we hold on long enough, and love them always, they come back to us. #Quote by Meg Meeker Md
Refuelling Point quotes by Daniel Ehrenhaft
#38. Somehow, at some point, I'd developed a serious problem. I'd started handling every single situation exactly the way it shouldn't be handled. #Quote by Daniel Ehrenhaft
Refuelling Point quotes by Christopher McDougall
#39. You've got enough fat stored to run to California, so the more you train your body to burn fat instead of sugar, the longer your limited sugar tank is going to last.
The way to activate your fat-burning furnace is by staying below your aerobic threshold
your hard-breathing point
during your endurance runs. Respecting that speed limit was a lot easier before the birth of cushioned shoes and paved roads; diet, and those tumors may never appear in the first place. Eat like a poor person, as Coach Joe Vigil likes to say, and you'll only see your doctor on the golf course. #Quote by Christopher McDougall
