Decomposition Sayings By Ann Coulter: By the time the girls' corpses were found four days later, their bodies were so By the time the girls' corpses were found four days later, their bodies were so badly decomposed that dental records were required for identification. The decomposition was especially pronounced in the head, neck, and genital areas.8 Jennifer's father, tipped off that bodies had been found, rushed to the scene, but the police held him back, as he shouted, "Does she have blond hair? Does she have blond hair?" Activist Ralph Reed tells the New York Times that Republicans should take a more "charitable" view of immigration.9 When he's a fourteen-year-old American girl being raped and murdered by Mexicans, we'll be more interested in his ideas on charity. — Ann Coulter

Decomposition Sayings By Okakura Kakuzo: Much has been said of the aesthetic values of chanoyu- the love of the subdued Much has been said of the aesthetic values of chanoyu- the love of the subdued and austere- most commonly characterized by the term, wabi. Wabi originally suggested an atmosphere of desolation, both in the sense of solitariness and in the sense of the poverty of things. In the long history of various Japanese arts, the sense of wabi gradually came to take on a positive meaning to be recognized for its profound religious sense ... the related term, sabi, ... It was mid-winter, and the water's surface was covered with the withered leaves of the of the lotuses. Suddenly I realized that the flowers had not simply dried up, but that they embodied, in their decomposition, the fullness of life that would emerge again in their natural beauty. — Okakura Kakuzo

Decomposition Sayings By Antoine Lavoisier: In every combustion there is disengagement of the matter of fire or of light. A In every combustion there is disengagement of the matter of fire or of light. A body can burn only in pure air [oxygen]. There is no destruction or decomposition of pure air and the increase in weight of the body burnt is exactly equal to the weight of air destroyed or decomposed. The body burnt changes into an acid by addition of the substance that increases its weight. Pure air is a compound of the matter of fire or of light with a base. In combustion the burning body removes the base, which it attracts more strongly than does the matter of heat, which appears as flame, heat and light. — Antoine Lavoisier

Decomposition Sayings By Miriam Toews: I was beginning to understand something I couldn't articulate. It was a jazzy feeling in I was beginning to understand something I couldn't articulate. It was a jazzy feeling in my chest, a fluttering, a kind of buzzing in my brain. Warmth. Life. The circulation of blood. Sanguinity. I don't know. I understood the enormous risk of telling the truth, how the telling could result in every level of hell reigning down on you, your skin scorched to the bone and then bone to ash and then nothing but a lingering odour of shame and decomposition, but now I was also beginning to understand the new and alien feeling of taking the risk and having the person on the other end of the telling, the listener, say:
Bad shit at home? You guys are running away?
Yeah, I said.
I understand, said, Noehmi. — Miriam Toews

Decomposition Sayings By Dean Koontz: Power is living while others inevitably perish. Power is cool indifference to their suffering. Power Power is living while others inevitably perish. Power is cool indifference to their suffering. Power is taking nourishment from the deaths of others, just as the mighty redwoods draw sustenance from the perpetual decomposition of what once lived, but lived only briefly, around them. This is also part of the philosophy of Edgler Foreman Vess. — Dean Koontz

Decomposition Sayings By Wojciech Jaruzelski: There were three causes that accounted for the proclamation of martial law in Poland. First There were three causes that accounted for the proclamation of martial law in Poland. First it was the progressing economic ruin of the country. Second, it was the decomposition of the functioning of the state. And third, a threat of a civil war. — Wojciech Jaruzelski

Decomposition Sayings By Dan Wells: Cavity embalming has the same general purpose as arterial embalming: you take the old fluids Cavity embalming has the same general purpose as arterial embalming: you take the old fluids out and put new fluids in, to kill bacteria and halt decomposition long enough for a viewing and a funeral. But whereas arterial embalming used the body's natural circulatory system to make the job easy, cavity embalming involved a lot of individual organs and unconnected spaces that had to be dealt with one by one. We accomplished this with a tool called a trocar - basically a long, bladed nozzle attached to a vacuum. We used the trocar to puncture a body and suck out the gunk, a process called 'aspiration', and then once we'd sucked everything out we cleaned the trocar and attached it to a different tube, so it could drizzle in another chemical cocktail similar to the one we put in the arteries. — Dan Wells

Decomposition Sayings By Swami Vivekananda: In the primal state before any manifestation, when there was no motion but perfect balance, In the primal state before any manifestation, when there was no motion but perfect balance, this Prakriti was indestructible, because decomposition or death comes from instability or change. — Swami Vivekananda

Decomposition Sayings By Empedocles: There are forces in nature called Love and Hate. The force of Love causes elements There are forces in nature called Love and Hate. The force of Love causes elements to be attracted to each other and to be built up into some particular form or person, and the force of Hate causes the decomposition of things. — Empedocles

Decomposition Sayings By Joel Salatin: The cycle of life is death, decomposition and regeneration, and a person who wants to The cycle of life is death, decomposition and regeneration, and a person who wants to stop killing animals is actually anti-life because it's only in death that life can be regenerated. — Joel Salatin
Decomposition Sayings By Marcellin Berthelot: Do these fuels result always and necessarily in one way from the decomposition of a Do these fuels result always and necessarily in one way from the decomposition of a pre-existing organic substance? Is it thus with the hydrocarbons so frequently observed in volcanic eruptions and emanations, and to which M. Ch. Sainte-Claire Deville has called attention in recent years? Finally, must one assign a parralel origin to carbonaceous matter and to hydrocarbons contained in certain meteorites, and which appear to have an origin foreign to our planet? These are questions on which the opinion of many distinguished geologists does not as yet appear to be fixed. — Marcellin Berthelot
Decomposition Sayings By Dieter Appelt: White is the color of decomposition. White is also no color. White is nothing. In White is the color of decomposition. White is also no color. White is nothing. In photography, the paper is white, next comes the light, which is also white, then the shadow is created, the apparition. — Dieter Appelt
Decomposition Sayings By Sara Sheridan: I remember calling the council's cemetery department to ask about body decomposition in different soil I remember calling the council's cemetery department to ask about body decomposition in different soil types. Once they had verified that I was a novelist and not a sicko, they were extremely helpful. — Sara Sheridan
Decomposition Sayings By Natalie Goldberg: Our bodies are garbage heaps: we collect experience, and from the decomposition of the thrown-out Our bodies are garbage heaps: we collect experience, and from the decomposition of the thrown-out eggshells, spinach leaves, coffee grinds, and old steak bones out of our minds, come nitrogen, heat, and very fertile soil. Out of this fertile soil bloom our poems and stories. But this does not come all at once. It takes time. Continue to turn over and over the organic details of your life until some of them fall through the garbage of discursive thoughts to the solid ground of black soil. — Natalie Goldberg
Decomposition Sayings By Steve McConnell: Avoid duplicate code. Undoubtedly the most popular reason for creating a routine is to avoid Avoid duplicate code. Undoubtedly the most popular reason for creating a routine is to avoid duplicate code. Indeed, creation of similar code in two routines implies an error in decomposition. Pull the duplicate code from both routines, put a generic version of the common code into a base class, and then move the two specialized routines into subclasses. — Steve McConnell
Decomposition Sayings By Samuel Beckett: But it is only since I have ceased to live that I think of these But it is only since I have ceased to live that I think of these things and the other things. It is in the tranquillity of decomposition that I remember the long confused emotion which was my life, and that I judge it, as it is said that God will judge me, and with no less impertinence. To decompose is to live too, I know, I know, don't torment me, but one sometimes forgets. — Samuel Beckett
Decomposition Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: In fact their strength, as with over-specialized athletes, is the result of a deformity. I In fact their strength, as with over-specialized athletes, is the result of a deformity. I thought it was the same with people who were selected for trying to get high grades in a small number of subjects rather than follow their curiosity: try taking them slightly away from what they studied and watch their decomposition, loss of confidence, and denial. (Just like corporate executives are selected for their ability to put up with the boredom of meetings, many of these people were selected for their ability to concentrate on boring material.) I've — Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Decomposition Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Do we smell nothing as yet of the divine decomposition? Gods, too, decompose. God is Do we smell nothing as yet of the divine decomposition? Gods, too, decompose. God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. — Friedrich Nietzsche
Decomposition Sayings By Mary Roach: When you get right down to it, there is no dignified way to go, be When you get right down to it, there is no dignified way to go, be it decomposition, incineration, dissection, tissue digestion, or composting. They're all, bottom line, a little disagreeable. It takes the careful application of a well-considered euphemism - burial, cremation, anatomical gift-giving, water reduction, ecological funeral - to bring it to the point of acceptance. — Mary Roach
Decomposition Sayings By Neil DeGrasse Tyson: I remain unconvinced that anything other than rapid decomposition is the fate of my body I remain unconvinced that anything other than rapid decomposition is the fate of my body and mind after death. — Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Decomposition Sayings By Justus Von Liebig: I will now direct the attention of scientists to a previously unnoticed cause which brings I will now direct the attention of scientists to a previously unnoticed cause which brings about the metamorphosis and decomposition phenomena which are usually called decay, putrefaction, rotting, fermentation and moldering. This cause is the ability possessed by a body engaged in decomposition or combination, i.e. in chemical action, to give rise in a body in contact with it the same ability to undergo the same change which it experiences itself. — Justus Von Liebig
Decomposition Sayings By Charles Dickens: It is known, to the force of a single pound weight, what the engine will It is known, to the force of a single pound weight, what the engine will do; but, not all the calculators of the National Debt can tell me the capacity for good or evil, for love or hatred, for patriotism or discontent, for the decomposition of virtue into vice, or the reverse. — Charles Dickens
Decomposition Sayings By Joseph Alois Schumpeter: Capitalism Survive? - I have tried to show that a socialist form of society will Capitalism Survive? - I have tried to show that a socialist form of society will inevitably emerge from an equally inevitable decomposition of capitalist society. — Joseph Alois Schumpeter

Decomposition Sayings By David Quammen: Most bacteriologists were trained as medical men - Burnet himself had been, before going into Most bacteriologists were trained as medical men - Burnet himself had been, before going into bacteriological research - and "their interest in general biological problems was very limited." They cared about curing and preventing diseases, which was well and good; less so about pondering infection as a biological phenomenon, a relationship between creatures, equal in fundamental importance to such other relationships as predation, competition, and decomposition. — David Quammen
Decomposition Sayings By David Maraniss: There was a precarious balance during those crucial months between composition and decomposition - what There was a precarious balance during those crucial months between composition and decomposition - what the world gained and what a great city lost. Even then, some part of Detroit was dying, and that is where the story begins. — David Maraniss
Decomposition Sayings By Bernard Stiegler: The genuine object of debate raised by the [2008 financial] crisis ought to be how The genuine object of debate raised by the [2008 financial] crisis ought to be how to overcome the short-termism to which we have been led by a consumerism intrinsically destructive of all genuine investment in the future, a short-termism which has systematically, and not accidentally, been translated into decomposition of investment into speculation. — Bernard Stiegler

Decomposition Sayings By Charles Dickens: Such a staircase, with its accessories, in the older and more crowded parts of Paris, Such a staircase, with its accessories, in the older and more crowded parts of Paris, would be bad enough now; but, at that time, it was vile indeed to unaccustomed and unhardened senses. Every little habitation within the great foul nest of one high building - that is to say, the room or rooms within every door that opened on the general staircase - left its own heap of refuse on its own landing, besides flinging other refuse from its own windows. The uncontrollable and hopeless mass of decomposition so engendered, would have polluted the air, even if poverty and deprivation had not loaded it with their intangible impurities; the two bad sources combined made it almost insupportable. Through such an atmosphere, by a steep dark shaft of dirt and poison, the way lay. — Charles Dickens
Decomposition Sayings By Ambrose Bierce: EMBALM, v.i. To cheat vegetation by locking up the gases upon which it feeds. By EMBALM, v.i. To cheat vegetation by locking up the gases upon which it feeds. By embalming their dead and thereby deranging the natural balance between animal and vegetable life, the Egyptians made their once fertile and populous country barren and incapable of supporting more than a meagre crew. The modern metallic burial casket is a step in the same direction, and many a dead man who ought now to be ornamenting his neighbour's lawn as a tree, or enriching his table as a bunch of radishes, is doomed to a long inutility. We shall get him after awhile if we are spared, but in the meantime, the violet and rose are languishing for a nibble at his gluteus maximus. — Ambrose Bierce
Decomposition Sayings By Malcolm Muggeridge: What is called Western Civilization is in an advanced state of decomposition, and another Dark What is called Western Civilization is in an advanced state of decomposition, and another Dark Ages will soon be upon us, if, indeed, it has not already begun. With the Media, especially television, governing all our lives, as they indubitably do, it is easily imaginable that this might happen without our noticing ... by accustoming us to the gradual deterioration of our values. — Malcolm Muggeridge
Decomposition Sayings By Joseph Lister: But when it has been shown by the researches of Pasteur that the septic property But when it has been shown by the researches of Pasteur that the septic property of the atmosphere depended not on the oxygen, or any gaseous constituent, but on minute organisms suspended in it, which owed their energy to their vitality, it occurred to me that decomposition in the injured part might be avoided without excluding the air, by applying as a dressing some material capable of destroying the life of the floating particles. Upon this principle I have based a practice. — Joseph Lister
Decomposition Sayings By Jons Jacob Berzelius: This new force, which was unknown until now, is common to organic and inorganic nature. This new force, which was unknown until now, is common to organic and inorganic nature. I do not believe that this is a force entirely independent of the electrochemical affinities of matter; I believe, on the contrary, that it is only a new manifestation, but since we cannot see their connection and mutual dependence, it will be easier to designate it by a separate name. I will call this force catalytic force. Similarly, I will call the decomposition of bodies by this force catalysis, as one designates the decomposition of bodies by chemical affinity analysis. — Jons Jacob Berzelius
Decomposition Sayings By Aldous Huxley: Then came the discovery that adrenochrome, which is a product of the decomposition of adrenalin, Then came the discovery that adrenochrome, which is a product of the decomposition of adrenalin, can produce many of the symptoms observed in mescalin intoxication. But adrenochrome probably occurs spontaneously in the human body. In other words, each one of us may be capable of manufacturing a chemical, minute doses of which are known to cause profound changes in consciousness. Certain — Aldous Huxley
Decomposition Sayings By Amber Sparks: Eventually decomposition strips you bare, even in that solid oak you've taken the shape of. Eventually decomposition strips you bare, even in that solid oak you've taken the shape of. You've helped, finally, to enrich something around you, by feeding the soil with your skin and fat and muscle. Now the soil is full of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and especially nitrogen. Now the soil is supremely satisfied, and you'd be okay with that. You always did like growing things. You always were better with plants than people. — Amber Sparks
Decomposition Sayings By Stephen King: Dead fields under a November sky, scattered rose petals brown and turning up at the Dead fields under a November sky, scattered rose petals brown and turning up at the edges, empty pools scummed with algae, rot, decomposition, dust ... — Stephen King
Decomposition Sayings By James Joyce: Imagine some foul and putrid corpse that has lain rotting and decomposing in the grave, Imagine some foul and putrid corpse that has lain rotting and decomposing in the grave, a jelly-like mass of liquid corruption. Imagine such a corpse a prey to flames, devoured by the fire of burning brimstone and giving off dense choking fumes of nauseous loathsome decomposition. And then imagine this sickening stench, multiplied a millionfold and a millionfold again from the millions upon millions of fetid carcasses massed together in the reeking darkness, a huge and rotting human fungus. Imagine all this, and you will have some idea of the horror of the stench of hell. — James Joyce
Decomposition Sayings By Robert Neelly Bellah: While there are practical and sometimes moral reasons for the decomposition of the family, it While there are practical and sometimes moral reasons for the decomposition of the family, it coincides neither with what most people in society say they desire nor, especially in the case of children, with their best interests. — Robert Neelly Bellah
Decomposition Sayings By Henri Marie Ducrotay De Blainville: Life is the twofold internal movement of composition and decomposition at once general and continuous. Life is the twofold internal movement of composition and decomposition at once general and continuous. — Henri Marie Ducrotay De Blainville
Decomposition Sayings By Selman Waksman: The soil is not a mass of dead debris, merely resulting from the physical and The soil is not a mass of dead debris, merely resulting from the physical and chemical weathering of rocks; it is a more or less homogeneous system which has resulted from the decomposition of plant and animal remains. It is teeming with life. — Selman Waksman
Decomposition Sayings By Claes Oldenburg: A life cycle can be imposed on an object. An object can be very energetic A life cycle can be imposed on an object. An object can be very energetic and active, and then it has a dying phase and a phase of decomposition. — Claes Oldenburg
Decomposition Sayings By Theodor Adorno: Newness only becomes mere evil in its totalitarian format, where all the tension between individual Newness only becomes mere evil in its totalitarian format, where all the tension between individual and society, that once gave rise to the category of the new, is dissipated. Today the appeal to newness, of no matter what kind, provided only that it is archaic enough, has become universal, the omnipresent medium of false mimesis. The decomposition of the subject is consummated in his self-abandonment to an ever-changing sameness. — Theodor Adorno
Decomposition Sayings By Otto Von Bismarck: Even the most favorable outcome of the war will never lead to the decomposition of Even the most favorable outcome of the war will never lead to the decomposition of the main forces of Russia, which is based on millions of Russian ... The latter, even if they break up international treaties, just as quickly re-connect with each other, like pieces of a particle of mercury ... — Otto Von Bismarck
Decomposition Sayings By Jeff Lindsay: I stepped toward the car, trying to plan what to do, which was impossible because I stepped toward the car, trying to plan what to do, which was impossible because I did not know what they wanted, or even who they were. It was no longer believable that it was merely a random crazy - not if he knew where I lived. But who was it? Who had any reason to act like this? Among the living, I mean, because there were plenty of former victims who might have loved to come after me, but they were all far beyond any sort of action at all, other than decomposition. I — Jeff Lindsay

Decomposition Sayings By Dave Goulson: It is the threat of extinction of large mammals such as tigers or rhinoceros that It is the threat of extinction of large mammals such as tigers or rhinoceros that tends to capture the public's attention, but arguably it is the loss of the smaller creatures that should give us most concern. Insects are responsible for delivering numerous 'ecosystem services' such as pollination and decomposition, and there is no doubt that little life on earth (including ourselves) could survive without them. — Dave Goulson
