Santiago Ramón y Cajal
“Heroes and scholars represent the opposite extremes... The scholar struggles for the benefit of all humanity, sometimes to reduce physical effort, sometimes to reduce pain, and sometimes to postpone death, or at least render it more bearable. In contrast, the patriot sacrifices a rather substantial part of humanity for the sake of his own prestige. His statue is always erected on a pedestal of ruins and corpses... In contrast, all humanity crowns a scholar, love forms the pedestal of his statues, and his triumphs defy the desecration of time and the judgment of history.”
Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Advice for a Young Investigator

Deena Metzger
“Write against patterns. Go against the devils. Write what you never write. Lie. Validate what you don’t validate. Indulge what you don’t like. Wallow in it. Write the opposite of what you always write, think, speak. Do everything against the grain!”
Deena Metzger

Toba Beta

Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Tim Crawshaw

“As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delights of presence best known by the torments of absence.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Dan Brown
“God created… light and
dark, heaven and hell—
science claims the same thing as religion, that the Big Bang created
everything in the universe with an opposite.
“Including matter itself, antimatter”
Dan Brown, Angels & Demons

Katie McGarry
“I bite the inside of my lip to conceal the smile forming. All right, so this is cool. Very cool. I’m well aware that I’m barely seventeen and in a bar because I’m hiding from the police, and the guy across from me is my opposite in more ways than I can calculate, but I can’t help but feel like a princess who has a knight pledging his loyalty.”
Katie McGarry, Crash into You

Israelmore Ayivor
“However, create a limit for your communications and interactions with the opposite sex and respect that limit, else you tear away your delicate moral fabrics.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Israelmore Ayivor
“The moment your dreams and your revelation take a special direction while your plans and actions take the opposite direction you commit yourself into a tight box for failure!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Israelmore Ayivor
“The vision of life is not a "discovery"; it's a "work" and whatever position you occupy demands work. Your life may not be built on your visions if you go high and find yourself doing the vice. Going higher should be a priority; but being aware of the reason for getting there should be the focus!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Nityananda Das
“The worst form of equality is to try to make equal things that are their reciprocal opposite complimentary.”
Nityananda Das, Divine Union

Dan Brown
“Energetically speaking, antimatter is the mirror image of matter, so the two instantly cancel each other out if they come in contact.
Keeping antimatter isolated from matter is a challenge, of course, because everything on earth is made of matter. The samples have to be stored without ever touching anything at all—even air.”
Dan Brown, Angels & Demons

Israelmore Ayivor
“Every idea, both good and bad will definitely have an opposition. The fact that someone mocks your ideas and dreams does not mean they are bad. Take note!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Do all the good you can while you still have the opportunity.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

“Too much of something can lead to the opposite”
Herbern Lebumfacil

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“The type he preferred was the opposite: those skinny little tadpoles that no one bothered to turn around and look at in the street, who seemed to disappear when they took off their clothes, who made you feel sorry for them when their bones cracked at the first impact, and yet who could leave the man who bragged the most about his virility ready for the trashcan.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Shannon L. Alder
“You always had it in you to create miracles, but you forgot that it required you to do the opposite of what you are doing now.”
Shannon L. Alder

Anne Lamott
“The opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns. Faith also means reaching deeply within, for the sense one was born with, the sense, for example, to go for a walk.”
Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith
