Duck tape works wonders - Author: Richard L. Ratliff
Demolition Derby quotes by Richard L. Ratliff

Demolition Derby quotes by Hugh Sidey

#7. Imagine a pantomime directed by Quentin Tarantino, where villains are booed, heroes are blood-stained, the body-count is high, the entertainment pulsating, the language filthy and the audience screamed behind you' as tackles hurtled in like boulders crashing down a mountain-side. Such was the epic drama that gripped the Emirates yesterday. A derby crammed with sound, fury and significance ended with everyone grasping for breath, with Arsenal regaining the high ground of the Premier League ... This was the Premier League at its raw, mistake-filled, mesmerising best. Utterly compelling. - Author: Henry Winter
Demolition Derby quotes by Henry Winter

Demolition Derby quotes by Esther Derby
#9. Derby described the incredible artificial weather that Earthlings sometimes create for other Earthlings when they don't want those other Earthlings to inhabit Earth any more. Shells were bursting in the treetops with terrific bangs, he said, showering down knives and needles and razorblades. Little lumps of lead in copper jackets were crisscrossing the woods under the shellbursts, zipping along much faster than sound.
A lot of people were being wounded or killed. So it goes. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Demolition Derby quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#10. I do not mean to imply that the good old days were perfect. But the institutions and structure
the web
of society needed reform,not demolition. To have cut the institutional and community strands without replacing them with new ones proved to be a form of abuse to one generation and to the next. For so many Americans, the tragedy was not in dreaming that life could be better; the tragedy was that the dreaming ended. - Author: Richard Louv
Demolition Derby quotes by Richard Louv
#11. Basketball would have been the natural sport to play, but it's a little too aggressive for me, so instead I dabbled in volleyball and some good old-fashioned Roller Derby. - Author: Jessica Williams
Demolition Derby quotes by Jessica Williams
#12. I'm hyper-aware of my last name and it's lack of Derby or Horowtiz-esque sonorousness. Moffett sounds like a type of couch cushion. I guess I'm hoping to start a wave of first-name usage. - Author: Kevin Moffett
Demolition Derby quotes by Kevin Moffett
#13. When harvests are exuberant, joy and health follow in their train; but let delusive prosperity draw industry from agriculture; let an insiduous disease attack one of its important products; let an insect, or a parasite, fasten on a single esculent, and mark the effect upon commerce and human life. Upon such an event all business is deranged. - Author: Elias Hasket Derby
Demolition Derby quotes by Elias Hasket Derby
#14. I went out to the Derby on Wednesday and think it is the most interesting thing I ever saw over here. - Author: Richard H. Davis
Demolition Derby quotes by Richard H. Davis
#15. A new building built on old foundation can't last. Maybe for a while; but when the earthquakes come and the floods flow in, it will wash out. A new building built on a new foundation, though, will be able to endure the ground shaking and the waves that come in. To build a new generation of people, a new foundation needs to be built - the old one destroyed. They once destroyed the foundations of old; but those can be built again. Do you seek comfort? Or do you seek Truth? Your comfort has done nothing for you. Funny how looking into a mirror can cause so much discomfort. I have held many mirrors up for you. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Demolition Derby quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#16. This western-front business couldn't be done again, not for a long time. The young men think they could do it but they couldn't. They could fight the first Marne again but not this. This took religion and years of plenty and tremendous sureties and the exact relation that existed between the classes. The Russians and Italians weren't any good on this front. You had to have a whole-souled sentimental equipment going back further than you could remember. You had to remember Christmas, and postcards of the Crown Prince and his fiancée, and little cafés in Valence and beer gardens in Unter den Linden and weddings at the mairie, and going to the Derby, and your grandfather's whiskers. - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Demolition Derby quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald
#17. He is as much a part of the Derby tradition as the Twin Spires themselves - Author: John Mallory Asher
Demolition Derby quotes by John Mallory Asher
#18. Chesterfield 1, Chester 1. Another score draw in the local derby - Author: Des Lynam
Demolition Derby quotes by Des Lynam
#19. She understood as never before that home wasn't a place but rather a place in the heart. In this troubled world, everything was transient except what we could carry with us in our minds and hearts. Every home ceased to be a home sooner or later, but not with its demolition. It survived destruction as long as just one person who had loved it still lived. Home was the story of what happened there, not the story of where it happened. - Author: Dean Koontz
Demolition Derby quotes by Dean Koontz
#20. Here a tower shining bright
Once stood gleaming in the night
Where now
There's just the rubble in the hole
from White City - Author: Shane MacGowan
Demolition Derby quotes by Shane MacGowan
#21. The Manchester Derby is bigger and more important than El Classico. - Author: Diego Maradona
Demolition Derby quotes by Diego Maradona
#22. First, the probability of fire causing the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise building is exceedingly low. Such an event has never occurred prior to or since September 11, 2001. On the other hand, every total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise building in history has been caused by controlled demolition. - Author: Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth
Demolition Derby quotes by Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth
#23. No longer to be compelled to betray one's own feelings and senses, no longer to allow oneself to be deflected from the truth of facts by ideologies of any kind, is already to lend a hand in the demolition of the inhuman, destructive wall of silence - the wall that we were forced to respect as children and which has again and again resulted in fascist behavior. - Author: Alice Miller
Demolition Derby quotes by Alice   Miller
#24. As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system, and regrettably your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Earth minutes. Thank you. - Author: Douglas Adams
Demolition Derby quotes by Douglas Adams
#25. But before Derby go, would they mind telling the rest of the Premier League - the league which it has debased with its pathetically-inadequate presence for the past 12 months - where the money has gone? You know, the £30m or so in prize money that every team, even the one at the bottom of the table from August to May, automatically receives by being in the Premier League ... So what happened to that money? Or put another way, why was such a meaningless fraction of it spent on recruiting new players? It's one thing not to compete; it's quite another not to even attempt to do so. - Author: Pete Gill
Demolition Derby quotes by Pete Gill
#26. And then it developed that Campbell was not going to go unanswered after all. Poor old Derby, the doomed high school teacher, lumbered to his feet for what was probably the finest moment in his life. There are almost no characters in this story, and almost no dramatic confrontations, because most of the people in it are so sick and so much the listless playthings of enormous forces. One of the main effects of war, after all, is that people are discouraged from being characters. But old Derby was a character now. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Demolition Derby quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#27. If sharks could smile, they'd smile like he was now. - Author: Kathleen Peacock
Demolition Derby quotes by Kathleen Peacock
#28. The role of smart, radical activists is to encourage, protract, organize, and multiply the chipping away not only at the mythology of presumed supremacy, but at power and its social and physical infrastructure. To find weak points within scriptures and structures of the system, as one might examine an old block wall before demolition, seeking out crumbling mortar lines and cracked blocks. Then, to strike, and recruit more help - more and more - and strike, and strike, and bring it down. - Author: Michael Carter
Demolition Derby quotes by Michael Carter
#29. The people, they need someone to live through. Trust me, I used to be in roller derby back in the day. People need a hero. - Author: Mat Johnson
Demolition Derby quotes by Mat Johnson
#30. I was a 'Laurel and Hardy' nut. I got to know Laurel at the end of his life, and it was a great thrill for me. He left me his bow tie and derby and told me that if they ever made a movie about him, he'd want me to play him. - Author: Dick Van Dyke
Demolition Derby quotes by Dick Van Dyke
#31. Pride of place in my wardrobe is an Edwardian-style Norfolk Jacket in Derby Tweed. It is silk-lined with leather-clad buttons and has a smell that reminds me of wet moss and fallen leaves. - Author: Fennel Hudson
Demolition Derby quotes by Fennel Hudson
#32. Remember the people in the back streets of Derby. - Author: Arthur Christiansen
Demolition Derby quotes by Arthur Christiansen
#33. Man made one grave mistake: in answer to vaguely reformist and humanitarian agitation he admitted women to politics and the professions. The conservatives who saw this as the undermining of our civilisation and the end of the state and marriage were right after all; it is time for the demolition to begin. - Author: Germaine Greer
Demolition Derby quotes by Germaine Greer
#34. Unless you work in demolition, don't burn bridges. - Author: Harvey MacKay
Demolition Derby quotes by Harvey MacKay
#35. A lesson will keep repeating itself until it is learned. Life first will send the lesson to you in the size of a pebble; if you ignore the pebble, then life will send you a brick; if you ignore the brick, life will send you a brick wall; if you ignore the brick wall, life will send you a demolition truck. - Author: Oprah Winfrey
Demolition Derby quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#36. In this life many demolitions are actually renovations. - Author: Rumi
Demolition Derby quotes by Rumi
#37. Your frequent claim that we must understand religious belief as a "social construct," produced by "societal causes," dependent upon "social and cultural institutions," admitting of "sociological questions," and the like, while it will warm the hearts of most anthropologists, is either trivially true or obscurantist. It is part and parcel of the double standard that so worries me - the demolition of which is the explicit aim of The Reason Project.

Epidemiology is also a "social construct" with "societal causes," etc. - but this doesn't mean that the germ theory of disease isn't true or that any rival "construct" - like one suggesting that child rape will cure AIDS - isn't a dangerous, deplorable, and unnecessary eruption of primeval stupidity. We either have good reasons or bad reasons for what we believe; we can be open to evidence and argument, or we can be closed; we can tolerate (and even seek) criticism of our most cherished views, or we can hide behind authority, sanctity, and dogma. The main reason why children are still raised to think that the universe is 6,000 years old is not because religion as a "social institution" hasn't been appropriately coddled and cajoled, but because polite people (and scientists terrified of losing their funding) haven't laughed this belief off the face of the earth.

We did not lose a decade of progress on stem-cell research in the United States because of religion as a "social construct"; we lost it because of the be - Author: Sam Harris
Demolition Derby quotes by Sam Harris
#38. During the same hours of 1993 when the chopper crews in Somalia were slowly being overpowered and gunned down, there were twenty-four young boys back in the United States who would grow up to be future players in that African struggle. They had no way to know anything yet about the unique fighting group every one of them would eventually strive with all his determination to join. They also couldn't know, though they would one day find out in person, that this particular battle corps is so elite, the candidate must first be a Navy SEAL just to attempt to get through the training - and even then, three out of four of those superb warrior-athletes fail to qualify.
The group has had numerous military names during its long rise from the murky history of the early "frogmen" swimmers, to the black operations of the Underwater Demolition Teams whose only calling card was to render their targets dead, to the latest appellation as the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - or DEVGRU, for those who prefer names ugly and short. But the group is better known to the general public as the near-mythical warriors of "SEAL Team Six." Their complex training supports a brilliantly simple task: to be the very last thing their opponents see, if they are ever seen at all. - Author: Anthony Flacco
Demolition Derby quotes by Anthony Flacco
#39. Derby born and bred, mate. - Author: Lauren Socha
Demolition Derby quotes by Lauren Socha
#40. There are friends with whom we share neither interests nor any particular experiences, friends with whom we never correspond, whom we seldom meet and then only by chance, but whose existence nonetheless has for us a special if uncanny meaning. For me the Eiffel Tower is just such a friend, and not merely because it happens to be the symbol of a city, for Paris leaves me neither hot nor cold. I first became aware of this attachment of mine when reading in the paper about plans for its demolition, the mere thought of which filled me with alarm. - Author: Stanislaw Lem
Demolition Derby quotes by Stanislaw Lem
#41. How many people want to read about three disreputable pigs and a dopey wolf with a disposition towards house demolition? - Author: Jasper Fforde
Demolition Derby quotes by Jasper Fforde
#42. (My youngest sister, Antimony, is still trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. For the moment, it mostly seems to be roller derby, the occasional monster hunting job, and getting pissed at our parents.) - Author: Seanan McGuire
