Famous quotes containing the words annual, thirteenth, collection, science and/or year:

    Time that scatters hair upon a head
    Spreads the ice sheet on the shaven lawn;
    Signing an annual permit for the frost....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    The thirteenth fairy,
    her fingers as long and thin as straws,
    her eyes burnt by cigarettes,
    her uterus an empty teacup,
    arrived with an evil gift.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Psychobabble is ... a set of repetitive verbal formalities that kills off the very spontaneity, candor, and understanding it pretends to promote. It’s an idiom that reduces psychological insight to a collection of standardized observations, that provides a frozen lexicon to deal with an infinite variety of problems.
    Richard Dean Rosen (b. 1949)

    The present war having so long cut off all communication with Great-Britain, we are not able to make a fair estimate of the state of science in that country. The spirit in which she wages war is the only sample before our eyes, and that does not seem the legitimate offspring either of science or of civilization.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    The three practical rules, then, which I have to offer, are,— 1. Never read any book that is not a year old. 2. Never read any but famed books. 3. Never read any but what you like.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
