Call Quotes

Safe from temptation, safe from sin's pollution, She lives whom we call dead.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It's really easy to blow. Other call-makers, it takes a lot of breath to finish a long routine, and you run out of breath before the end.

Andrew Boston

I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot.

Gary Hart

If you give food to the poor, they call you a saint. If you ask why the poor have no food, they call you a Communist.

Manuel Alcántara

Cynthia Nelms

When her name is mentioned in the opera history books we will recall that vibrant, soaring tone-that and the blinding, high-beam-headlight smile that she flashed on her fans at each curtain call.

Donal Henahan

Much that we call evil is really good in disguises; and we should not quarrel rashly with adversities not yet understood, nor overlook the mercies often bound up in them.

Horace Mann

How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

Arthur C. Clarke

Many times I am asked why the suffering of animals should call forth more sympathy from me than the suffering of human beings; why I work in this direction of charitable work more than toward any other. My answer is that because I believe that this work includes all the education and lines of reform which are needed to make a perfect circle of peace and goodwill about the Earth.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. I will not call you children, -- for parents sometimes chide their children too severely; nor brothers only, -- for brothers differ. The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man's body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood.

William Penn

Make money and the whole world will conspire to call you a gentleman.

Twain Mark

Test every work of intellect or faith, And everything that your own hands have wrought And call those works extravagance of breath That are not suited for such men as come proud, open-eyed and laughing to the tomb.

William Butler Yeats

HAG, n. An elderly lady whom you do not happen to like; sometimes called, also, a hen, or cat. Old witches, sorceresses, etc., were called hags from the belief that their heads were surrounded by a kind of baleful lumination or nimbus --hag being the popular name of that peculiar electrical light sometimes observed in the hair. At one time hag was not a word of reproach: Drayton speaks of a "beautiful hag, all smiles," much as Shakespeare said, "sweet wench." It would not now be proper to call your sweetheart a hag --that compliment is reserved for the use of her grandchildren.

Ambrose Bierce

It is just like man's vanity and impertinence to call an animal dumb because it is dumb to his dull perceptions.

Mark Twain
