Half Quotes

A lie can make it half way around the world before the truth has time to put its boots on.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Country acquaintances are charming only in the country and only in the summer. In the city in winter they lose half of their appeal.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Average people didn't analyze what they thought: they thought they thought, and half of it was gut reaction.

C. J. Cherryh

Think about this, the people gave birth to me cannot stop hating each other enough. What does that tell you about me? Half of my genes must be fighting with other half, no wonder I am so fucking messed up.

Chetan Bhagat

But you know, it isn't designed. Love just shows up and you go, "Oh, wow, this is going to be a hayride and a half."

Jennifer Joanna Aniston

A century and a half after its birth, the modern business corporation, an artificial person made in the image of a human psychopath, now is seeking to remake real people in its image.

Joel Conrad Bakan

Some material things make my life more enjoyable; many, however, would not. I like having an expensive private plane, but owning a half-dozen homes would be a burden. Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends. My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest. Both my children and I won what I call the ovarian lottery. (For starters, the odds against my 1930 birth taking place in the U.S. were at least 30 to 1. My being male and white also removed huge obstacles that a majority of Americans then faced.) My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that sometimes produces distorted results, though overall it serves our country well. Ive worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions. In short, fates distribution of long straws is wildly capricious. The reaction of my family and me to our extraordinary good fortune is not guilt, but rather gratitude. Were we to use more than 1% of my claim checks on ourselves, neither our happiness nor our well-being would be enhanced. In contrast, that remaining 99% can have a huge effect on the health and welfare of others. That reality sets an obvious course for me and my family: Keep all we can conceivably need and distribute the rest to society, for its needs. My pledge starts us down that course.

Warren Edward Buffett

I see that a man cannot give himself up to drinking without being miserable one half his days and mad the other.

Anne Bront

"In God We Trust." It is the choicest compliment that has ever been paid us, and the most gratifying to our feelings. It is simple, direct, gracefully phrased: it always sounds well In God We Trust. I don't believe it would sound any better if it were true. And in a measure it is true half the nation trusts in Him. That half has decided it.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.

Jacques Prévert

Half the confusion in the world comes from not knowing how little we need.

Richard Evelyn Byrd

Self-knowledge can be painful, but not half so damaging as self-ignorance.

Orson Scott Card

This is the makeup process. Ive been here since half past five this morning. So would you say youre bringing out a beauty thats already there? How does it work? How do we hide the bald patch?

Derren Victor Brown

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people half way.

Henry Boyle

Democracy is a constant tension between truth and half-truth and, in the arsenal of truth, there is no greater weapon than fact.
