We know that communication must be hampered, and its form largely determined, by the unconscious but inevitable influence of a transmitting mechanism, whether that be of a merely mechanical or of a physiological character.

– Oliver Joseph Lodge


In other cases, when the medium becomes entranced, the demonstration of a communicator’s separate intelligence may become stronger and the sophistication less.

The hypothesis of surviving intelligence and personality – not only surviving but anxious and able with difficulty to communicate – is the simplest and most straightforward and the only one that fits all the facts.

– Oliver Joseph Lodge


The properties which differentiate living matter from any kind of inorganic imitation may be instinctively felt, but can hardly be formulated without expert knowledge.

3 Quotes by Ozzy Osbourne

 

They say military have the so-called ‘secret intelligence’ – this amount of intelligence must be very secret, since I’ve never seen any intelligent military person, nor I have seen any sense in the bloody stupid wars.

– Ozzy Osbourne


Somebody said to me this morning, ‘To what do you attribute your longevity?’ I don’t know. I mean, I couldn’t have planned my life out better. By all accounts I should be dead! The abuse I put my body through: the drugs, the alcohol, the lifestyle I’ve lived the last 30 years!

– Ozzy Osbourne


All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don’t subscribe to any of that. It’s all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who’s to say what is and isn’t a certain type of music?

– Ozzy Osbourne

Octavia Spencer – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Octavia Spencer

 

I hope that in some way that I can be some sort of beacon of hope, especially because I am not the typical Hollywood beauty.

I was always a closet lover of acting. My mom was very practical. She never, ever restricted our dreams, always told us we could do or be anything. Then I said, ‘Maybe I want to be an actor’. And she said, ‘Maybe not that’.

You cannot live to please everyone else. You have to edify, educate and fulfill your own dreams and destiny, and hope that whatever your art is that you’re putting out there, if it’s received, great, I respect you for receiving it. If it’s not received, great, I respect you for not.

– Octavia Spencer

I began reading science fiction before I was 12 and started writing science fiction around the same time.

The thing about science fiction is that it’s totally wide open. But it’s wide open in a conditional way.

– Octavia Butler


What I’m working on now – I’m back to fantasy, although considering that it’s me, I’m turning it into a kind of science fantasy. It’s a vampire story – but my vampires are biological vampires. They didn’t become vampires because someone bit them they were born that way.

11 Quotes by Oliver Stone
