Fast Quotes

There is nothing more nervous than a million dollars - it moves very fast, and it doesn't speak any language.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

No cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love can do with a twined thread.

Robert Burton

I have the right to do whatever I wish with my property. If I own a pile of wood, I can set fire to it even if it is currently nailed together in the shape of a barn. Cigarettes may not be healthy for me in the long run, but I have the freedom to smoke them anyway. Drinking alcohol may or may not have negative side effects, but even if it does, the government has no authority to prohibit you from consuming it, even if it is "in your own best interest." Since when do we let the government decide what is or isn't good for us? What the hell does Congress know about nutrition, anyway? (For that matter, what does Congress know about the Constitution?) If the government can use force whenever something is "in our best interest" then government should force everyone to wake up at 6am every morning for calisthenics in the front yard. Fast food establishments should be torn down and replaced with bars that serve carrot juice and alfalfa sprouts, since - "it's in your best interest." This paternalistic attitude that "the government knows best" and that you are merely a helpless child is insulting and reprehensible. Hitler used the same attitude to persuade the Germans to subjugate themselves to the "Fatherland."

Michael J. Badnarik

Among these treasures of our land is water--fast becoming our most valuable, most prized, most critical resource. A blessing where properly used--but it can bring devastation and ruin when left uncontrolled.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

Madness is to think of too many things in succession too fast, or of one thing too exclusively.

Voltaire

You dont burn out from going too fast. You burn out from going too slow and getting bored.

Clifford Lee Burton

Break the fast, and you will be stronger to confront the enemy.

Habib Bourguiba

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.

Lily Tomlin

In all the work we do, our most valuable asset can be the attitude of self-examination. It is forgivable to make mistakes, but to stand fast behind a wall of self-righteousness and make the same mistake twice is not forgivable.

Dale E. Turner

When it comes to football, God is prejudiced - toward big, fast kids.

Chuck Mills

Those who spend too fast never grow rich.

Honor de Balzac

Fanatic faith, once wedded fast to some dear falsehood, hugs it to the last.

Thomas Moore

We are very pleased to have secured the exploration rights to this interesting block and to be participating in Madagascars fast growing exploration effort. This is our first joint project with Mocoh since a recent agreement for co-operation in African exploration ventures.

Brian Hall

Maybe thats what hell is. You go mad, and all your demonds come and get you just as fast as you can think them up.

Anne Rice

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

Ayn Rand

How fast we learn in a day of sorrow! Scripture shines out in a new effulgence; every verse seems to contain a sunbeam, every promise stands out in illuminated splendor; things hard to be understood become in a moment plain.

H. Bonar

The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven't thought of yet.

Ann Landers

Bill Holman

It takes a long time to make me beautiful, but it goes fast to make me ugly.

Stellan Skarsgard

Oh, why should the spirit of mortal be proud? Like a fast-flitting meteor, a fast-flying cloud, A flash of the lightning, a break of the wave, He passes from life to his rest in the grave.

William Knox

Of the gladest moments in human life, methinks is the departure upon a distant journey to unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the Slavery of Home, man feels once more happy. The blood flows with the fast circulation of childhood....afresh dawns the morn of life...

Sir Richard Francis Burton

In Hollywood you can see things at night that are fast enough to be in the Olympics in the day time.

Will Rogers

Maybe that's what Hell is. You go mad. And all your demons come and get you just as fast as you can think them up.

ANNE RICE

Other people snap up the riskless profits pretty fast and bid the price of calculable risk opportunities to near their fair values. Things get a lot less crowded if you go for the incalculable risks, leaps of faith that cannot be inspected carefully before takeoff. So that is where you find extraordinary opportunities.

Aaron C. Brown
