Donald O. Hebb quotes

  • May God so fill us today with the heart of Christ that we may glow with the divine fire of holy desire.

  • From moment then to moment their desire Gained strength, and wisdom fled before love's fire; Passion engulfed them, and these lovers lay Entwined together till the break of day.

  • There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion, and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them the more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration.

  • My first book, 'The Age of Wire and String,' came out in 1995, and it was hardly reviewed at all.

  • An extra pressure, a silent rebuke, an unseen praising, a firm correction: all these passed between us as through telegraph wires.

  • If a literary man puts together two words about music, one of them will be wrong.

  • Geniuses come in many shapes and colors, and they often run in packs. If you can find one, it may lead you to others. Collaborate with geniuses. Send them your spells. Look carefully at theirs. What could you do together? Combination is creation.

  • Is it an original idea? Or is it something where you're literally a creative collagist? You're taking pieces of the world that you see around you and that are inside of you and put them together in a way that you see fit.

  • After a prosperous, but to me very wearisome, voyage, we came at last into port. Immediately on landing I got together my few effects; and, squeezing myself through the crowd, went into the nearest and humblest inn which first met my gaze.

  • Let the sky fall, when it crumbles - We will stand tall - Face it all together
