Sediments quotes by Rick Bass
#1. Buried him next to my cabin door, in that sunken, blissful spot where he had napped, always waiting for the next hunt: beneath the wild rose bushes. I buried him, as I had Ann, with bones and antlers and venison and dog food and a wreath of cedar and lupine. I buried him with shells, both 12- and 20-gauge, for whenever we went hunting again, and I put in extras because I knew I'd miss some shots. The bones and wings of his quarry. A whistle, a brass bell. Then the earth back in over him, and new grief in over old grief, like a mountain eroding to bury with its disintegrating sediments, disintegrating heart and body, something bright and valuable below. #Quote by Rick Bass
Sediments quotes by Maurice Merleau Ponty
#2. But the spectacle perceived does not partake of pure being. Taken exactly as I see it, it is a moment of my individual history, and since sensation is a reconstitution, it pre-supposes in me sediments left behind by some previous constitution, so that I am, as a sentient subject, a repository stocked with natural powers at which I am the first to be filled with wonder. #Quote by Maurice Merleau Ponty
Sediments quotes by Soumya V.
#3. Sediments of stones scatter as the ego hath crushed, weather of life changes every form , be it rock or a human! #Quote by Soumya V.
Sediments quotes by Harun Yahya
#4. Not only the iron on Earth, but also the iron in the entire Solar
System, comes from outer space, since the temperature in the Sun is
inadequate for the formation of iron. The Sun has a surface temperature
of 6,000 degrees Celsius (11,000oF), and a core temperature of approximately
20 million degrees (36 million degrees Fahrenheit). Iron can
only be produced in much larger stars than the Sun, where the temperature
reaches a few hundred million degrees. When the amount of iron
exceeds a certain level in a star, the star can no longer accommodate it,
and it eventually explodes in what is called a "nova" or a "supernova."
These explosions make it possible for iron to be given off into space.40
One scientific source provides the following information on this
There is also evidence for older supernova events: Enhanced levels of
iron-60 in deep-sea sediments have been interpreted as indications that a
supernova explosion occurred within 90 light-years of the sun about 5
million years ago. Iron-60 is a radioactive isotope of iron, formed in
Allah's Miracles in the Qur'an
supernova explosions, which decays with a half life of 1.5 million years.
An enhanced presence of this isotope in a geologic layer indicates the
recent nucleosynthesis of elements nearby in space and their subsequent
transport to the earth (perhaps as part of dust grains).41

Sediments quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#5. People who, out of an inborn moderation, leave every glass standing only half-emptied refuse to admit that everything in the world has its sediments and dregs. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Sediments quotes by Niles Eldredge
#6. Paleontologists ever since Darwin have been searching (largely in vain) for the sequences of insensibly graded series of fossils that would stand as examples of the sort of wholesale transformation of species that Darwin envisioned as the natural product of the evolutionary process. Few saw any reason to demur - though it is a startling fact that ... most species remain recognizably themselves, virtually unchanged throughout their occurrence in geological sediments of various ages. #Quote by Niles Eldredge
Sediments quotes by William Scott Home
#7. Become desert, the great silty gobs
Rise up in whirlwinds and subsist under miasma
Of sediments aloft: dust-storms inherit
The powerful cells of the old gorals:
The vacated seabed's stark unfinished frame
Roils with lightnings and thunders down to the trenches

Which despite centuries keep filling in
With an oily ooze pressed from corpse Sargassos
In a chain of trapdoor--bottom Dead Seas
By mile-deep muds laid down as secret essence
Of all the ingenuities fielded above.
In them the newest become most ancient mires.

Profound air clubs like a meteor-hammer
The misfits weaned more in shallows, but the bones,
The kraken carapaces, litter both
Guys-slope and plain, can yon and domdaniel
Rearing like cere brat ranges from the chat
Of midge-mollusks uncountable, minor life.. #Quote by William Scott Home
Sediments quotes by Bill Bryson
#8. 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
Sediments quotes by John Joly
#9. The sediments of the past are many miles in collective thickness: yet the feeble silt of the rivers built them all from base to summit. #Quote by John Joly
Sediments quotes by Ann Zwinger
#10. Unkar Delta at Mile 73
The layers of brick red sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone of the Dox formation deposited a billion years ago, erode easily, giving the landscape an open, rolling character very different that the narrow, limestone walled canyon upstream, both in lithology and color, fully fitting Van Dyke's description of "raspberry-red color, tempered with a what-not of mauve, heliotrope, and violet." Sediments flowing in from the west formed deltas, floodplains, and tidal flats, which indurated into these fine-grained sedimentary rocks thinly laid deposits of a restful sea, lined with shadows as precise as the staves of a musical score, ribboned layers, an elegant alteration of quiet siltings and delicious lappings, crinkled water compressed, solidified, lithified. #Quote by Ann Zwinger
Sediments quotes by Sergey Kadinsky
#11. The geology of Staten Island is the most complex of the city's boroughs, containing the terminal moraine of the last ice age, a fault line from 470 million years ago, the southern tail of the Palisades formation, and sediments collected over the millennia. #Quote by Sergey Kadinsky
Sediments quotes by Robert Macfarlane
#12. For deep time is measured in units that humble the human instant: millennia, epochs and aeons, instead of minutes, months and years. Deep time is kept by rock, ice, stalactites, seabed sediments and the drift of tectonic plates. Seen in deep time, things come alive that seemed inert. New responsibilities declare themselves. Ice breathes. Rock has tides. Mountains rise and fall. We live on a restless Earth. #Quote by Robert Macfarlane
