Empty Quotes

Smoking dope and hanging up Che's picture is no more a commitment than drinking milk and collecting postage stamps. A revolution in consciousness is an empty high without a revolution in the distribution of power. We are not interested in the greening of Amerika except for the grass that will cover its grave.

Abbie Hoffman

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend

Bruce Lee

I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it's really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.

Agnetha Faltskog

An empty belly is the best cook

Estonian Proverb

It has been said that our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I wondered whether the scientific modern brain could not get to the stage of realising that Space is not an empty homogeneous medium, but full of intricate differences, intelligible and real, though not with our common reality.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

Time is the most precious gift in our possession, for it is the most irrevocable. This is what makes it so disturbing to look back upon the time which we have lost. Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering. Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

You can't build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery.

Norman Ernest Borlaug

To-morrow it seem Like the empty words of a dream Remembered on waking.

Robert Seymour Bridges

Let's dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues. Let's dance to the song they're playin' on the radio. Let's sway while colour lights up your face. Let's swa , sway through the crowd to an empty space.

David Robert Jones

Do not all charms fly at the mere touch of cold philosophy? There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: we know her woof, her texture; she is given in the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an angel's wings, conquer all mysteries by rule and line, empty the haunted air, and gnome mine unweave a rainbow.

John Keats

Philosophy! Empty thinking by ignorant conceited men who think they can digest without eating!

Iris Murdoch

Like those special afternoons in summer when you go to Yankee Stadium at two o'clock in the afternoon for an eight o'clock game. It's so big, so empty and so silent that you can almost hear the sounds that aren't there

Ray Miller

The difficulty with color is to go beyond the fact that it's color to have it be not just a colorful picture but really be a picture about something. It's difficult. So often color gets caught up in color, and it becomes merly decorative. Some photographers use it brilliantly to make visual statements combining color and content; otherwise it is empty.

Mary Ellen Mark

Despite our efforts to keep him out, God intrudes. The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: "a virgin's womb and an empty tomb". Jesus entered our world through a door marked,"No Entrance" and left through a door marked "No Exit."

Peter Larson

The soundest argument will produce no more conviction in an empty head than the most superficial declamation; a feather and a guinea fall with equal velocity in a vacuum

Charles Caleb Colton

Music without emotion is like an empty shell. Technique is, of course, essential, but the emphasis should be on bhava or emotional expression. For this, the vocalist has to make a deep and thought study of the nava-rasas. Classical musicians generally ignore this aspect and pay no attention to rasa-siddhant. That is why our shastriya sangeet fails to appeal to listeners who always prefer music which appeals to the heart, rather than the intellect.

Kishori Amonkar

Love, to be real, must cost - it must hurt - it must empty us of self.

Mother Teresa

Just as the absence of clouds does not mean the end of the sky, neither is an empty mind the end of knowing.

Guy Finley

Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill up its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors.

Joseph Addison

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance!

Robert Browning

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces between stars--on stars where no human race is. I have it in me so much nearer home to scare myself with my own desert places.

Robert Frost

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance

Robert Browning

In literature and art memory is a synonyme for invention. It is the life-blood of imagination, which faints and dies when the veins are empty.

Robert Aris Willmott
