Zollie Scales quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#1. The scales of equilibrium can be found in wilderness/ #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Zollie Scales quotes by Angel M.B. Chadwick
#2. I'm off the rails, tipping the scales, following the trail, delving into my own custom made form of outer space. #Quote by Angel M.B. Chadwick
Zollie Scales quotes by Anna Godbersen
#3. There was no pleasure like being envied on a mass scale. #Quote by Anna Godbersen
Zollie Scales quotes by Saul Bellow
#4. Anxiety destroys scale, and suffering makes us lose perspective. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Zollie Scales quotes by Caleb Scharf
#5. Our existence in this place, this microscopic corner of the cosmos, is fleeting. With utter disregard for our wants and needs, nature plays out its grand acts on scales of space and time that are truly hard to grasp. Perhaps all we can look to for real solace is our endless capacity to ask questions and seek answers about the place we find ourselves in. #Quote by Caleb Scharf
Zollie Scales quotes by Maimonides
#6. Every man should view himself as equally balanced: half good and half evil. Likewise, he should see the entire world as half good and half evil ... With a single good deed he will tip the scales for himself, and for the entire world, to the side of good. #Quote by Maimonides
Zollie Scales quotes by Steven Erikson
#7. Gather close, and let us speak of nasty little shits. Oh, come now, we are no strangers to the vicious demons in placid disguises, innocent eyes so wide, hidden minds so dark. Does evil exist? Is it a force, some deadly possession that slips into the unwary? Is it a thing separate and thus subject to accusation and blame, distinct from the one it has used? Does it flit from soul to soul, weaving its diabolical scheme in all the unseen places, snarling into knots tremulous fears and appalling opportunity, stark terrors and brutal self-interest? Or is the dread word nothing more than a quaint and oh so convenient encapsulation of all those traits distinctly lacking moral context, a sweeping generalization embracing all things depraved and breath takingly cruel, a word to define that peculiar glint in the eye - the voyeur to one's own delivery of horror, of pain and anguish and impossible grief?
Give the demon crimson scales, slashing talons. Tentacles and dripping poison. Three eyes and six slithering tongues. As it crouches there in the soul, its latest abode in an eternal succession of abodes, may every god kneel in prayer.
But really. Evil is nothing but a word, an objectification where no objectification is necessary. Cast aside this notion of some external agency as the source of inconceivable inhumanity - the sad truth is our possession of an innate proclivity towards indifference, towards deliberate denial of mercy, towards disengaging all that is moral within #Quote by Steven Erikson
Zollie Scales quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#8. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Zollie Scales quotes by Jennifer Michael Hecht
#9. A reasonable scale of probability-what is likely-forbids believing a whole range of imaginative possibilities, even though we do not know anything for sure. #Quote by Jennifer Michael Hecht
Zollie Scales quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#10. The idea is that of the earth not only becoming covered with myriad grains of thought, but becoming enclosed in a single thinking envelope so as to form, functionally, no more than a single vast grain of thought on the sidereal scale, the plurality of individual reflections grouping themselves together and reinforcing one another in the act of a single unanimous reflection ... A new domain of psychical expansion- that is what we lack. And it is staring us in the face if we would only raise our heads to look at it. #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Zollie Scales quotes by Jodi Kantor
#11. People who face too many demands - two careers, two children - often scale back somehow. The Obamas scaled up. #Quote by Jodi Kantor
Zollie Scales quotes by Salman Rushdie
#12. You don't just - you often have to defend the freedoms of people you don't like, you know, whose work you don't like, because freedom of speech is not just for serious people. It's also for trashy people. So, and, unfortunately, this is at the trashy end of the scale. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Zollie Scales quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#13. We only have to look around us to see how complexity ... and psychic "temperature" are still rising: and rising no longer on the scale of the individual but now on that of the planet. This indication is so familiar to us that we cannot but recognize the objective, experiential, reality of a directionally controlled transformation of the Noosphere "as a whole." #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Zollie Scales quotes by John Hodgman
#14. Just a small-scale cult of personality, maybe raise a geodetic dome out in western Massachusetts and make people wear jumpsuits and give all their possessions to me. #Quote by John Hodgman
Zollie Scales quotes by Jean Lorrain
#15. There were charming ones as well as terrible ones, that I must admit. The painter was particularly entranced by Japanese masks: warriors', actors' and courtesans' masks. Some of them were frightfully contorted, the bronze cheeks creased by a thousand wrinkles, with vermilion weeping from the corners of the eyes and long trails of green at the corners of the mouths like splenetic beards.

'These are the masks of demons,' said the Englishman, caressing the long black swept-back tresses of one of them. 'The Samurai wore them in battle, to terrify the enemy. The one which is covered in green scales, with two opal pendants between the nostrils, is the mask of a sea-demon. This one, with the tufts of white fur for eyebrows and the two horsehair brushes beside the lips, is the mask of an old man. These others, of white porcelain - a material as smooth and fine as the cheeks of a Japanese maiden, and so gentle to the touch - are the masks of courtesans. See how alike they all are, with their delicate nostrils, their round faces and their heavy slanted eyelids; they are all effigies of the same goddess. The black of their wigs is rather beautiful, isn't it? Those which bubble over with laughter even in their immobility are the masks of comic actors.'

That devil of a man pronounced the names of demons, gods and goddesses; his erudition cast a spell. Then: 'Bah! I have been down there too long!'

Now he took up the light edifices of gauze and painted silk #Quote by Jean Lorrain
Zollie Scales quotes by Kevin Hearne
#16. On a Creep Scale from Hello Kitty to Cthulhu, I award it a Freddy
Granuaile MacTiernan #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Zollie Scales quotes by Scarlett Johansson
#17. People are fed up - and I think quite rightfully so. But what are they proposing as an alternative to just being upset or feeling disillusioned or abandoned? That kind of protest movement really needs to happen on a much bigger scale, but there needs to be a clearer message. #Quote by Scarlett Johansson
Zollie Scales quotes by Kristin Cashore
#18. You cannot measure love by a scale of degrees. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Zollie Scales quotes by Vandana Shiva
#19. I think the American people should see that the corporations abandoned them long ago. That people will have to build their own economies and rebuild democracy as a living democracy. The corporations belong to no land, no country, no people. They have no loyalty to anything apart from their profits. And the profits today are on an unimaginable scale; it has become illegitimate, criminal profit - profits extracted at the cost of life. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Zollie Scales quotes by Mark Hopkins
#20. But for us there are moments, O, how solemn, when destiny trembles in the balance and the preponderance of either scale is by our own choice. #Quote by Mark Hopkins
Zollie Scales quotes by Alison Sweeney
#21. I was never obese, but I felt 'less than' because I wasn't as thin as other actresses. I totally fell for that low-fat craze. My goal was to be X jeans size or a specific number on the scale. #Quote by Alison Sweeney
Zollie Scales quotes by Dale Mayer
#22. She grinned. Lifted herself up on her elbow so she could look down at him, and said, "Now that you've recovered, ready to go again? #Quote by Dale Mayer
Zollie Scales quotes by Ray Harmony
#23. Theory is a six-letter dirty word to most musicians, but hey, musicians love dirty words, right? And just like all the other dirty words, theory is easy to learn and fun to use! #Quote by Ray Harmony
Zollie Scales quotes by Terry Goodkind
#24. Truth has advocates who seek understanding," Richard said. "Corrupt ideas have miserable little fanatics who attempt to enforce their beliefs through intimidation and brutality ... through faith. Savage force is faith's obedient servant. Violence on an apocalyptic scale can only be born of faith because reason, by its very nature, disarms senseless cruelty. Only faith thinks to justify it. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Zollie Scales quotes by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
#25. God weighs a soul on a pair of scales. In one of the dishes is the soul, and in the other, the tears of those who weep for it. If nobody cries, the soul goes down to Hell. If there are enough tears, and they are sufficiently heartfelt, it rises up to Heaven...People who are missed by other people, they are the ones who go to Paradise. Paradise is the space we occupy in other people's hearts. #Quote by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
Zollie Scales quotes by Samantha Shannon
#26. Cloud steamed from its scales - scales of moonstone, so bright they seemed to glow from within. A crust of gem-like droplets glistened on each one. Each eye was a burning star, and each horn was quicksilver, agleam under the pallid moon. #Quote by Samantha Shannon
Zollie Scales quotes by John Knowles
#27. He's imagining himself Justice incarnate, balancing the scales. He's forgotten that Justice incarnate is not only balancing the scales but also blindfolded. #Quote by John Knowles
Zollie Scales quotes by David Harvey
#28. The net effect of increasing scale, centralization of capital, vertical integration and diversification within the corporate form of enterprise has been to replace the 'invisible hand' of the market by the 'visible hand' of the managers. #Quote by David Harvey
Zollie Scales quotes by Neil LaBute
#29. First I would probably place men at the bottom of the food chain. On a grander scale, I would say they're reacting to change. Feminism has got to be part of that. #Quote by Neil LaBute
Zollie Scales quotes by John Niven
#30. I returned from my last L.A. visit to find myself tipping the scales like Homer Simpson when he tries to gain enough weight to qualify as disabled to be allowed to work from home. All I was missing was his kaftan and Fat Guy Hat. So, I decided it was time to diet. #Quote by John Niven
Zollie Scales quotes by Adam  Becker
#31. Nonetheless, the appeal of Copenhagen makes some sense, seen in this light. Quantum physics drove much of the technological and scientific progress of the past ninety years: nuclear power, modern computers, the Internet. Quantum-driven medical imaging changed the face of health care; quantum imaging techniques at smaller scales have revolutionized biology and kicked off the entirely new field of molecular genetics. The list goes on. Make some kind of personal peace with Copenhagen, and contribute to this amazing revolution in science . . . or take quantum physics seriously, and come face-to-face with a problem that even Einstein couldn't solve. Shutting up never looked so good. #Quote by Adam Becker
Zollie Scales quotes by Robert Reed
#32. A community is a small group working together. Community scales by adding groups, and building connections between them, not enlarging them. #Quote by Robert Reed
Zollie Scales quotes by J.K. Rowling
#33. Crouching low over the beast's neck, he clung tight to the metallic scales, and the cool breeze was soothing on his burned and blistered skin, the dragon's wings beating the air like the sails of a windmill. Behind him, whether from delight or fear he could not tell, Ron kept swearing at the top of his voice, and Hermione seemed to be sobbing. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Zollie Scales quotes by Phil Cousineau
#34. Reading old travel books or novels set in faraway places, spinning globes, unfolding maps, playing world music, eating in ethnic restaurants, meeting friends in cafes ... all these things are part of never-ending travel practice, not unlike doing scales on a piano, shooting free-throws, or meditating. #Quote by Phil Cousineau
Zollie Scales quotes by Og Mandino
#35. Never has there been a map, however carefully executed to detail and scale, which has carried its owner over even one inch of ground. Never has there been a parchment of law, however fair, which prevented one crime. Never has there been a scroll, even such as the one I hold, which so much as a penny or produced a single word of acclamation. Action, alone, is the tinder which ignites the map, the parchment, this scroll, my plans, my goals, into a living force. Action is the food and drink which will nourish my success. I will act now. #Quote by Og Mandino
Zollie Scales quotes by William Shakespeare
#36. God is our fortress, in whose conquering name
Let us resolve to scale their flinty bulwarks. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Zollie Scales quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#37. The wild worship of lawlessness and the materialist worship of law end in the same void. Nietzsche scales staggering mountains, but he turns up ultimately in Tibet. He sits down beside Tolstoy in the land of nothing and Nirvana. They are both helpless - one because he must not grasp anything, and the other because he must not let go of anything. The Tolstoyan's will is frozen by a Buddhist instinct that all special actions are evil. But the Nietzscheite's will is quite equally frozen by his view that all special actions are good; for if all special actions are good, none of them are special. They stand at the crossroads, and one hates all the roads and the other likes all the roads. The result is - well, some things are not hard to calculate. They stand at the cross-roads. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
