I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet - lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little - if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course.

It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, you'll eat slower and you will get more nutrients.

The lecturer should give the audience full reason to believe that all his powers have been exerted for their pleasure and instruction. Michael Faraday quotes

Water is to me, I confess, a phenomenon which continually awakens new feelings of wonder as often as I view it. Michael Faraday quotes

My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of. Jodie Foster
