The Sixth Extinction quotes by Rae Armantrout
#1. Like most of my poems, 'Lie' has several sources: I read a very troubling book called The Sixth Extinction. I took note of the way people, including me, enjoy talking knowledgeably about how the world will end. I drove to Tucson and saw the desert flowering on either side of the road. And I glanced at my spam to see what people wanted to sell me these days. #Quote by Rae Armantrout
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert
#2. The center of the American Museum of Natural History's Hall of Biodiversity, there's an exhibit embedded in the floor. The exhibit is arranged around a central plaque that notes there have been five major extinction events since complex animals evolved, over five hundred million years ago. According to the plaque, "Global climate change and other causes, probably including collisions between earth and extraterrestrial objects," were responsible for these events. It goes on to observe: "Right now we are in the midst of the Sixth Extinction, this time caused solely by humanity's transformation of the ecological landscape. #Quote by Elizabeth Kolbert
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Matthew Neill Null
#3. But the earth turns, and old ways are reexamined. The insurance companies say there are so many deer, so many wrecks. They have algorithms on their side. Kill more deer. Let all the predators live. #Quote by Matthew Neill Null
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Ignatius Of Loyola
#4. Up to his twenty-sixth year the heart of Ignatius was enthralled by the vanities of the world. His special delight was in the military life, and he seemed led by a strong and empty desire of gaining for himself a great name. #Quote by Ignatius Of Loyola
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Caroline Herschel
#5. My dear nephew was only in his sixth year when I came to be detached from the family circle. But this did not hinder John and I from remaining the most affectionate friends, and many a half or whole holiday he was allowed to spend with me, was dedicated to making experiments in chemistry, where generally all boxes, tops of tea-canisters, pepper-boxes, teacups, &c., served for the necessary vessels, and the sand-tub furnished the matter to be analysed. I only had to take care to exclude water, which would have produced havoc on my carpet. #Quote by Caroline Herschel
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Alistair Cooke
#6. When that happens [the demise of golf], old men will furtively beckon to their sons and, like fugitives from the guillotine recalling the elegant orgies at the court of Louis XV, will recite the glories of Portmarnock and Merion, of the Road Hole at St. Andrews, the sixth at Seminole, the eighteenth at Pebble Beach. They will take out this volume from its secret hiding place and they will say: "There is no question, son, that these were unholy places in an evil age. Unfortunately, I had a whale of a time." #Quote by Alistair Cooke
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Aly Raisman
#7. My school friends are really understanding and still want to hang out with me. Ever since I was in sixth grade, I was at the gym every day to work out while my friends were getting their nails done or going to the mall. I used to feel left out, but I don't anymore. #Quote by Aly Raisman
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Claudia Hammond
#8. I see the last two millennia as laid out in columns, like a reverse ledger sheet. It's as if I'm standing at the top of the twenty-first century looking downwards to 2000. Future centuries float as a gauzy sheet stretching over to the left. I also see people, architecture and events laid out chronologically in the columns. When I think of the year 1805, I see Trafalgar, women in the clothes of that era, famous people who lived then, the building, etc. The sixth to tenth centuries are very green, the Middle Ages are dark with vibrant splashes of red and blue and the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are brown with rich, lush colours in the furniture and clothing. #Quote by Claudia Hammond
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Andrea Laurence
#9. She's jealous of you. She has been since you got that solo in the sixth-grade Christmas pageant."
( ... ) "You're telling me I went through six years of drama from Lydia because she decided I didn't deserve to sing the verses of 'It Came Upon A Midnight Clear' instead of her? #Quote by Andrea Laurence
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Sarah E. Morin
#10. Arpien didn't like tears. On the few occasions he'd tried to ease a maiden's tears, she inexplicably started producing more. How to fix this? He assumed the Sixth Stance of Deep Mourning and flourished the Bow of Esteemed Members of Foreign Nation States. "My condolences on the loss of your-" "Pickle?" She offered him one from the clay crock. #Quote by Sarah E. Morin
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Jasper Carrott
#11. I want to do things I enjoy, and show business comes fifth or sixth down the line. #Quote by Jasper Carrott
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Danny Mekić
#12. People feel uncomfortable when they have to divulge personal information during a police interrogation. Isn't it strange that one-sixth of the world population spreads such information on social media? #Quote by Danny Mekić
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Tess Gerritsen
#13. You know that movie, where the little boy says 'I see dead people'?
The Sixth Sense.
Well, I see them all the time, and I'm getting tired of it. That's what's ruined my mood. Here it is, almost Christmas, and I didn't even think about putting up a tree, because I'm still seeing the autopsy lab in my head. I'm still smelling it on my hands. I come home on a day like this, after two postmortems, and I can't think about cooking dinner. I can't even look at a piece of meat without thinking of muscle fibers. All I can deal with is a cocktail. And then I pour the drink and smell the alcohol, and suddenly there I am, back in the lab. Alcohol, formalin, they both have that same sharp smell. #Quote by Tess Gerritsen
The Sixth Extinction quotes by David Elkind
#14. It makes little sense to spend a month teaching decimal fractions to fourth-grade pupils when they can be taught in a week, and better understood and retained, by sixth-grade students. Child-centeredness does not mean lack of rigor or standards; it does mean finding the best match between curricula and children's developing interests and abilities. #Quote by David Elkind
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Jim Krusoe
#15. What has prepared Heather for her life in the Burrow?
Sleep, being hit over the head once in sixth grade and losing consciousness for a minute, waking up to find out someone had pushed her off the swings.
A life made of air #Quote by Jim Krusoe
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Brooke Astor
#16. If I go up to Harlem or down to Sixth Street, and I'm not dressed up or I'm not wearing my jewelry, then the people feel I'm talking down to them. People expect to see Mrs. Astor, not some dowdy old lady, and I don't intend to disappoint. #Quote by Brooke Astor
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Meredith Duran
#17. Shocking you? No. But here's a promise: if I get you beneath me again, you'll enjoy it even more. It'll only get better, Kitty. Why, the fifth or sixth time, I expect I'll make you come just by kissing your sweet little nipples. I'll suck them slow and soft, and then hard. And when I use my teeth on you, the slightest scrape - " "Stop. #Quote by Meredith Duran
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#18. There is no absurdity so palpable that one could not fix it firmly in the head of every man on earth provided one began to imprint it before his sixth year by ceaselessly rehearsing it before him with solemn earnestness. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Kristi Cook
#19. You remember that documentary they showed us in sixth grade? The one about Hurricane Katrina?"
"Yeah." I shrug, remembering how we'd all piled into the media center to watch it on the big, pull-down screen. I don't recall much about the movie itself, but I'm pretty sure Brad Pitt had narrated it. "What about it?"
"I had nightmares for weeks. I have no idea why it affected me the way it did."
"Seriously?"
He nods. "Ever since, well…let's just say I don't do well in storms. Especially hurricanes."
I just stare at him in stunned silence.
"You're going to have fun with this, aren't you?"
"No, I…of course not. Jeez." How big of a bitch does he think I am? "I'm not going to tell a soul. I promise. Okay? What happens in the storm shelter stays in the storm shelter," I quip, trying to lighten the mood.
His whole body seems to relax then, as if I've taken a weight off him.
"Did you seriously think I was going to rag on you for this? I mean, we've been friends forever."
He quirks one brow. "Friends?"
"Well, okay, not friends, exactly. But you know what I mean. Our moms used to put us in a crib together. Back when we were babies."
He winces. "I know."
"When we were little, things were fine. But then…well, middle school. It was just…I don't know…awkward. And then in eighth grade, I thought maybe…" I shake my head, obviously unable to form a complete sentence. "Never mind."
"You thought what? C'mon, don't stop now. You' #Quote by Kristi Cook
The Sixth Extinction quotes by James Patterson
#20. It's hard to believe, but before manufacturing went to Asia, New York City was an industrial powerhouse. In the thirties and forties, seventy-five percent of women's clothes in the country were made right here between Sixth and Ninth Avenues, from Forty-Second down to Thirtieth. They were stitched up and put on racks and then rolled over to Macy's on Thirty-Fourth for sale. Everything was centered around Penn Station, so people from out of town could come in and shop. The garment district here is why New York's fashion industry still leads the world and Seventh Avenue means fashion. #Quote by James Patterson
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Meg Cabot
#21. You know in sixth grade, when they made all of us girls go into this other room and watch a video about getting our periods and stuff? I bet while we were gone, the boys were watching a video about how to look at each other in that infuriating way. #Quote by Meg Cabot
The Sixth Extinction quotes by John Wayne
#22. And so he plays his part; the sixth age shifts'... I usually have trouble with that phrase. #Quote by John Wayne
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#23. The Russian empire, it is estimated, grew by fifty-five square miles (142 square kilometres) per day after the Romanovs came to the throne in 1613, or 20,000 square miles a year. By the late nineteenth century, they ruled one sixth of the earth's surface - and they were still expanding. Empire-building was in a Romanov's blood. #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Angie Karan
#24. Our feelings are our guidance.The most powerful energy on this planet is our thought. It creates our reality. What we focus on, we attract to us. Our feelings are guidance that tells us whether what we are in the process of attracting will please us when it shows up in our life. In other words, if a thought feels good, it is; if it doesn't feel good, it isn't. Our feelings are our sixth and most powerful sense! #Quote by Angie Karan
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Henry Reed
#25. We each have a sixth sense that is attuned to the oneness dimension in life, providing a means for us to guide our lives in accord with our ideas. #Quote by Henry Reed
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
#26. You may go over the world and you will find that every form of religion which has breathed upon this earth has degraded woman... I have been traveling over the old world during the last few years and have found new food for thought. What power is it that makes the Hindoo woman burn herself upon the funeral pyre of her husband? Her religion. What holds the Turkish woman in the harem? Her religion. By what power do the Mormons perpetuate their system of polygamy? By their religion/ Man, of himself, could not do this; but when he declares, 'Thus saith the Lord,' of course he can do it. So long as ministers stand up and tell us Christ is the head of the church, so is man the head of woman, how are we to break the chains which have held women down through the ages? You Christian women look at the Hindoo, the Turkish, the Mormon women, and wonder how they can be held in such bondage...

Now I ask you if our religion teaches the dignity of woman? It teaches us the abominable idea of the sixth century--Augustine's idea--that motherhood is a curse; that woman is the author of sin, and is most corrupt. Can we ever cultivate any proper sense of self-respect as long as women take such sentiments from the mouths of the priesthood? #Quote by Elizabeth Cady Stanton
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Marie Daulne
#27. A man in Mali told me that there are seven senses. Everyone has five, some can use their sixth. But not everyone has the seventh. It is the power to heal with music, calm with color, to soothe the sick soul with harmony. He told me that I have this gift, and I know what I have to do with it. #Quote by Marie Daulne
The Sixth Extinction quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#28. And now I will tell of the revels that went on for three nights and two days in the brothel on West Seventy-sixth Street between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Estelle Morris
#29. I was head of the Sixth Form Centre when I left the school. #Quote by Estelle Morris
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Lorrie Moore
#30. By about the sixth week the smallness of the class, and whatever makeshift intimacy had sprung up there, became suddenly oppressive to me ... suddenly I wanted the anonymity of a large class, where class members did not really have faces and names and problems. In six weeks with Susan, Lodeme, Betty, Valerie, Ellen, Frances, Pat, Marie, Bridget, and Barney, ( ... ) brought to the stubborn limits of our knowability, we were now left with the jagged scrape of our differences. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Robin Wasserman
#31. Under the best of circumstances, middle school is a sixth-circle-of-hell situation, sandwiched somewhere between flaming tombs and flesh-eating harpies. It's the kind of situation that doesn't need gasoline on the fire, especially when said gasoline comes in the form of your older brother murdering the older sister of the third-most popular girl in school. #Quote by Robin Wasserman
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#32. Seven times have I despised my soul: The sixth time when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
The Sixth Extinction quotes by Derek Hough
#33. They read the names out from sixth place to first. We were standing backstage behind a huge curtain, and Rachael and Evgeni were right next to us. Swell. I thought maybe we stood a chance of coming in fourth. But they didn't call us. "This is crazy!" I whispered to Aneta. "We're top three?" Then they called a German couple. We were in the top two!
Rachael smiled at me. "Oh, Derek! Great job!" she said. What she really meant was, "We're going to take first place and you can have our sloppy seconds." Then we heard, "In second place, from England…" Rachael's face went white as a ghost. She and Evgeni were second! That left only one place for us…
"Derek Hough and Aneta Piotrovska are world champions!"
I started screaming, "What? What?" and jumping up and down. So much for my neck pain. This wasn't real; it couldn't be! I ran out from behind the curtain, pumping my fists in the air. I caught a glimpse of Rachael's face. She was beyond pissed.
"We did it! We did it!" I yelled. The rest happened in slow motion: I ran out and jumped off the stage and the floor. While I was midair, I remember thinking, " I'm wearing these Cuban heels. This isn't gonna be good." Then I hit the floor and my legs buckled. I fell into a roll, then stood straight up--as if I meant to do it all along. I limped over to Aneta to collect our trophy and we hugged. I didn't give a crap about anything else. Not my neck or my knees or Rachael fuming as they snapped pictures of all of us. It was #Quote by Derek Hough
