Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, does not consider glory and fame to be of great account unless they are achieved through having my subjects respect Dhamma and practice Dhamma, both now and in the future. For this alone does Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, desire glory and fame. And whatever efforts Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, is making, all of that is only for the welfare of the people in the next world, and that they will have little evil. And being without merit is evil. This is difficult for either a humble person or a great person to do except with great effort, and by giving up other interests. In fact, it may be even more difficult for a great person to do.

An instant's visitor the godhead shone. On life's thin border awhile the Vision stood And bent over earth's pondering forehead curve.

Jim Morrison

I was honestly very nervous of Constance Wheatcroft. And I wasn't the only one. Her entire family was afraid of her. Dogs were afraid of her. Bindweed in the hedge would wither as she passed; birds would forget their nesting instincts and fly back to north Africa at the sound of her hideous cries.

It is better to deny God, than to defy God. Sometimes our weakness is considered strength, and we take delight in borrowed greatness.

Sophia Loren

Fearlessness may be a gift but perhaps more precious is the courage acquired through endeavour, courage that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one's actions, courage that could be described as "grace under pressure" grace which is renewed repeatedly in the face of harsh, unremitting pressure.

Bryant McGill

We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.

Christopher Columbus, as everyone knows, is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America.

Zig Ziglar

In the interests of research I have walked on many battlefields that once were liquid with pulped mens bodies and spangled with exploded shells and splayed bone.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

Difficulties are stepping stones to success.

Unknown

Everyone who achieves success in a great venture, solves each problem as they came to it. They helped themselves. And they were helped through powers known and unknown to them at the time they set out on their voyage. They keep going regardless of the obstacles they met.

W. Clement Stone

As I was writing about Grace Marks, and about her interlude in the Asylum, I came to see her in context the context of other people's opinions, both the popular images of madness and the scientific explanations for it available at the time. A lot of what was believed and said on the subject appears like sheer lunacy to us now. But we shouldn't be too arrogant how many of our own theories will look silly when those who follow us have come up with something better? But whatever the scientists may come up with, writers and artists will continue to portray altered mental states, simply because few aspects of our nature fascinate people so much. The so-called mad person will always represent a possible future for every member of the audience who knows when such a malady may strike? When "mad," at least in literature, you aren't yourself; you take on another self, a self that is either not you at all, or a truer, more elemental one than the person you're used to seeing in the mirror. You're in danger of becoming, in Shakespeare's works, a mere picture or beast, and in Susanna Moodie's words, a mere machine; or else you may become an inspired prophet, a truth-sayer, a shaman, one who oversteps the boundaries of the ordinarily visible and audible, and also, and especially, the ordinarily sayable. Portraying this process is deep power for the artist, partly because it's a little too close to the process of artistic creation itself, and partly because the prospect of losing our self and being taken over by another, unfamiliar self is one of our deepest human fears.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

Real obstacles don't take you in circles. They can be overcome. Invented ones are like a maze.

Barbara Sher

Conquering any difficulty always gives one a secret joy, for it means pushing back a boundary-line and adding to one's liberty.

Henri Frederic Amiel

Conquering any difficulty always gives one a secret joy, for it means pushing back a boundary-line and adding to one's liberty.

Henri Frederic Amiel

It's frightfully important for a writer to be his age, not to be younger or older than he is. One might ask, "What should I write at the age of sixty-four," but never, "What should I write in 1940."

Wystan Hugh Auden

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

Isak Dinesen

To know yet to think that one does not know is best; Not to know yet to think that one knows will lead to difficulty.

Lao Tzu

You wish to be great, begin from the least. You are thinking to construct some mighty fabric in height; first think of the foundation of humility. And how great soever a mass of building one may wish and design to place above it, the greater the building is to be, the deeper does he dig his foundation.

St. Augustine of Hippo

The apprenticeship of difficulty is one which the greatest of men have had to serve.

The wise one does not speak to one whom he fears he shall be belied, he does not ask anyone of anything if he fears he shall not give, and he does not repose hope on one whom he does not trust.

Husayn ibn ‘Al

The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.

One of the key qualities that you need to be a great hockey player is fantastic anticipation and feel for the game - if you know where the puck is going before it is hit, that is half the battle.

Wayne Gretzky

None are happy but by the anticipation of change. The change itself is nothing; when we have made it, the next wish is to change again.

Samuel Johnson

There is no great sport in having bullets flying about one in every direction, but I find they have less horror when among them than when in anticipation.

Umberto Eco

A great source of calamity lies in regret and anticipation; therefore a person is wise who thinks of the present alone, regardless of the past or future.

Oliver Goldsmith

Such is the state of life, that none are happy but by the anticipation of change; the change itself is nothing; when we have made it, the next wish is to change again

Samuel Johnson

To get into the best society nowadays, one has either to feed people, amuse people, or shock people

Oscar Wilde

True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one's self, and in the next, from the friendship and conversation of a few select companions.

Joseph Addison

The whole period has taught me that I enjoy being part of an ensemble rather than just a front man. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy that too, but I get more enjoyment out of really listening to everyone.

Damon Albarn

The right of conscience and private judgment is unalienable, and it is truly the interest of all mankind to unite themselves into one body for the liberty, free exercise, and unmolested enjoyment of this right.

Ezra Stiles

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.

Aleister Crowley

I believe we have a responsibility not only to our contemporaries but also to future generations a responsibility to preserve resources that belong to them as well as to us, and without which none of us can survive. That means we must do much more, and urgently, to prevent or slow down climate change. Everyday that we do nothing, or too little, imposes higher costs on our children and our childrens children. Of course, it reminds me of an African proverb the earth is not ours but something we hold in trust for future generations. I hope my generation will be worthy of that trust.

Kofi Atta Annan

The enjoyment of life would be instantly gone if you removed the possibility of doing something.

Chauncey Depew

The dynamics of capitalism is postponement of enjoyment to the constantly postponed future.

William Penn

Love grows. Lust wastes by Enjoyment, and the Reason is, that one springs from an Union of Souls, and the other from an Union of Sense.

William Penn

It is a common temptation of Satan to make us give up the reading of the Word and prayer when our enjoyment is gone; as if it were of no use to read the Scriptures when we do not enjoy them, and as if it were no use to pray when we have no spirit of prayer.

George Muller

I think of art as the highest level of creativity. To me, it is one of the greatest sources of enjoyment.

David Rockefeller

I believe the right question to ask, respecting all ornament, is simply this; was it done with enjoyment, was the carver happy while he was about it?

John Ruskin

For anyone who works in front of an audience there is no thrill quite like that of feeling and hearing the evidence of the audience members' enjoyment. Laughter and applause really are powerful.

Randy West

Education alone can conduct us to that enjoyment which is, at once, best in quality and infinite in quantity.

Horace Mann

And I used to assemble the family to hear because I thought that they were so good that even from the point of view of enjoyment people shouldn't miss them, and I got every word of his that I could, and I could see by hard argument there was only the one way for it.

Ruth Pitter

Since we think we understand when we know the explanation, and there are four types of explanation (one, what it is to be a thing; one, that if certain things hold it is necessary that this does; another, what initiated the change; and fourth, the aim), all these are proved through the middle term.

Aristotle

The one man who should never attempt an explanation on poetry is its author. If the poem can be improved by its author?s explanations, it never should have been published.

Archibald MacLeish

The persons of their world lived in an atmosphere of faint implications and pale delicacies, and the fact that he and she understood each other without a word seemed to the young man to bring them nearer than any explanation would have done.

Edith Wharton

Why need every honest poet be suspected of leading a quadruple life? Sometimes the second or third meaning is less interesting than the first, and the only really difficult thing about a poem is the critic's explanation of it

Frank Moore Colby

Somehow, the conversation mentioned your name. And someone asked if I knew you. Looking away I thought of all the times we had together; Sharing laughter, tears, jokes and tons more. And then, without explanation you were gone. I looked to where they

Elbert Hubbard

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink.

Epicurus

The only valid thing in art is the one thing that cannot be explained, to explain away the mystery of a great painting would do irreplaceable harm, for whenever you explain or define something you substitute the explanation or the definition for the

Simone de Beauvoir

The simplest and most psychologically satisfying explanation of any observed phenomenon is that it happened that way because someone wanted it to happen that way.

Thomas Sowell

The clearest explanation for the failure of any marriage is that the two people are incompatible; that is, that one is male and the other female.

Anna Quindlen

My explanation remains the same: It was an attempt to make the point that anyone who opposed the war can achieve their objective by working within their sphere of influence, whether their political party or community of faith.

James P. Moran

I have three degrees in history and only one in law, but since I came back to specialize in constitutional law where history is so essentially a part and an explanation of much that exists, the two disciplines blended very well.

Frank Scott

I have three degrees in history and only one in law, but since I came back to specialize in constitutional law where history is so essentially a part and an explanation of much that exists, the two disciplines blended very well.

Frank Scott

I have a kind of standard explanation why, which goes like this: Science fiction is one way of making sense out of a senseless world.

John Sladek

Don't confuse hypothesis and theory. The former is a possible explanation; the latter, the correct one. The establishment of theory is the very purpose of science.

Martin H. Fischer

Communism to me is one-third practice and two-thirds explanation.

Will Rogers

One of the most arrogant undertakings, to my mind, is to write the biography of a man which pretends to go beyond external facts and gives the inmost motives. One of the most mendacious is autobiography

Theodor Haecker

Only when one has lost all curiosity about the future has one reached the age to write an autobiography

Evelyn Waugh

In this one book are the two most interesting personalities in the whole world--God and yourself. The Bible is the story of God and man, a love story in which you and I must write our own ending, our unfinished autobiography of the creature and the Creator.

Fulton Oursler

In this one book are the two most interesting personalities in the whole world--God and yourself. The Bible is the story of God and man, a love story in which you and I must write our own ending, our unfinished autobiography of the creature and the Creator.

In this one book are the two most interesting personalities in the whole world - God and yourself. The Bible is the story of God and man, a love story in which you and I must write our own ending, our unfinished autobiography of the creature and the Creator.

Jeffrey Bernard

I believe there's only one autobiography you can do.

John McEnroe

Autobiography begins with a sense of being alone. It is an orphan form.

John Berger

Persecution was at least a sign of personal interest. Tolerance is composed of nine parts of apathy to one of brotherly love.

Time will come when one's safety lies in ten things: nine of which are in staying aloof from men, and the tenth in staying silent.

Ali al-Rida

Working in an office with an array of electronic devices is like trying to get something done at home with half a dozen small children around. The calls for attention are constant.

Marilyn vos Savant

The best way to forget ones self is to look at the world with attention and love.

Red Auerbach

The best way to forget ones self is to look at the world with attention and love.

Red Auerbach

Some signs of understanding are: clemency, knowledge, and silence. Silence is one of the doors to wisdom. It brings about love and is evidence for all good.

No man is lonely eating spaghetti; it requires so much attention.

Christopher Morley

Throughout my career, if I have done anything, I have paid attention to every note and every word I sing - if I respect the song. If I cannot project this to a listener, I fail.

Frank Sinatra

I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid.

Aldous Huxley

There isn't any formula or method. You learn to love by loving - by paying attention and doing what one thereby discovers has to be done.

Aldous Huxley

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

Paulo Coelho

It takes a big idea to attract the attention of consumers and get them to buy your product. Unless your advertising contains a big idea, it will pass like a ship in the night. I doubt if more than one campaign in a hundred contains a big idea.

David Ogilvy

A good advertisement is one which sells the product without drawing attention to itself.

David Ogilvy

Each bud flowers but once and each flower has but its minute of perfect beauty; so, in the garden of the soul each feeling has, as it were, its flowering instant, its one and only moment of expansive grace and radiant kingship. Each star passes but once in the night through the meridian over our heads and shines there but an instant; so, in the heaven of the mind each thought touches its zenith but once, and in that moment all its brilliancy and all its greatness culminate. Artist, poet, or thinker, if you want to fix and immortalize your ideas or your feelings, seize them at this precise and fleeting moment, for it is their highest point. Before it, you have but vague outlines or dim presentiments of them. After it you will have only weakened reminiscence or powerless regret; that moment is the moment of your ideal.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

You don't seem to realize that a poor person who is unhappy is in a better position than a rich person who is unhappy. Because the poor person has hope. He thinks money would help.

Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be lived.

Michael Jackson

There are people who can do all fine and heroic things but one: keep from telling their happiness to the unhappy

santiz

The poor, the unsuccessful, the unhappy, the unhealthy are the ones who use the word tomorrow the most

Robert Kiyosaki

We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, G-d gives us the sun-and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that.

Paulo Coelho

It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone - so far.

Marilyn Monroe

Bertrand Russell

When unhappy, one doubts everything; when happy, one doubts nothing

Joseph Roux

A large part of altruism, even when it is perfectly honest, is grounded upon the fact that it is uncomfortable to have unhappy people about one

Henry Louis Mencken

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

Woody Allen

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

Woody Allen

Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

Dale Carnegie

Let no one who loves be unhappy... even love unreturned has its rainbow.

James Matthew Barrie

Let no one who loves be unhappy... even love unreturned has its rainbow.

James Matthew Barrie

There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them

Anthony de Mello

Without laughter life on our planet would be intolerable. So important is laughter to us that humanity highly rewards members of one of the most unusual professions on earth, those who make a living by inducing laughter in others. This is very strange if you stop to think of it: that otherwise sane and responsible citizens should devote their professional energies to causing others to make sharp, explosive barking-like exhalations.

Stephen Valentine Patrick William Allen

Commend a fool for his wit, or a rogue for his honesty and he will receive you into his favor.

Henry Fielding

Comedy has to be done en clair. You can't blunt the edge of wit or the point of satire with obscurity. Try to imagine a famous witty saying that is not immediately clear.

James Thurber

But assuming the same premises, to wit, that all men are equal by the law of nature and of nations, the right of property in slaves falls to the ground; for one who is equal to another cannot be the owner or property of that other.

William H. Seward

A proverb is the wisdom of many and the wit of one.

Lord John Russell

The finest workers in stone are not copper or steel tools, but the gentle touches of air and water working at their leisure with a liberal allowance of time.

Stones are hollowed out by the constant dropping of water.

Epistoloe

The stone in the water knows nothing of the hill which lies parched in the sun.

African Proverb

Aquifer: a mysterious, magical and poorly defined area beneath the surface of the earth that either yields or withholds vast or lesser quantities of standing/flowing water, the quantity and/or quality of which is dependent on who is describing it or how much money may be at stake.

R. Radden

Solid stone is just sand and water...Sand and water and a million years gone by.

Byron

He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, while he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

In their efforts to provide a sufficiency of water where there was not one, men have resorted to every expedient from prayer to dynamite. The story of their efforts is, on the whole, one of pathos and tragedy, of a few successes and many failures

Walter Prescott Webb

Everyone understands that water is essential to life. But many are only just now beginning to grasp how essential it is to everything in life ñ food, energy, transportation, nature, leisure, identity, culture, social norms, and virtually all the products used on a daily basis.

World Business Council for Sustainable Development

We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.

Jacques Cousteau

In the Western United States, water flows uphill to money.

Glen Sanders

If you could tomorrow morning make water clean in the world, you would have done, in one fell swoop, the best thing you could have done for improving human health by improving environmental quality.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

D.H. LAWRENCE

From the body of one guilty deed a thousand ghostly fears and haunting thoughts proceed.

William Wordsworth

More than one-half of the world's major rivers are being seriously depleted and polluted, degrading and poisoning the surrounding ecosystems, thus threatening the health and livelihood of people who depend upon them for irrigation, drinking and industrial water

Ismail Serageldin

Water is essential for all dimensions of life. Over the past few decades, use of water has increased, and in many places water availability is falling to crisis levels. More than eighty countries, with forty percent of the worldís population, are already facing water shortages, while by year 2020 the worldís population will double. The costs of water infrastructure have risen dramatically. The quality of water in rivers and underground has deteriorated, due to pollution by waste and contaminants from cities, industry and agriculture. Ecosystems are being destroyed, sometimes permanently. Over one billion people lack safe water, and three billion lack sanitation; eighty per cent of infectious diseases are waterborne, killing millions of children each year.

World Bank Institue

Water flows uphill towards money.

Ivan Doig

Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.

Lao Tzu

He who has one-hundred friends has no friends to lose, he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Lack of friends means, stranger in one's own country.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

There are six components of wellness: proper weight and diet, proper exercise, breaking the smoking habit, control of alcohol, stress management and periodic exams.

Kenneth H. Cooper

It is not about weight, it is about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.

Deborah Bull

A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.

Oscar Wilde

Ivan Doig

There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.

Aldous Huxley

There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.

Deepak Chopra

Why are women immobile? Because so many feel like theyíre waiting for someone to say, ëYouíre good, youíre pretty, I give you permission.

Eve Ensler

It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people don't care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done.

Robert South

When you take charge of your life, there is no longer need to ask permission of other people or society at large. When you ask permission, you give someone veto power over your life.

Abert F. Geoffrey

So basically the understanding on these so-called reissues is that they were done behind my back, without my permission, and the band informed me that I would no longer be paid on them at all.

Jello Biafra

Richard Hugo taught me that anyone with a desire to write, an ear for language and a bit of imagination could become a writer. He also, in a way, gave me permission to write about northern Montana.

James Welch

Others, amounting to four novels and a mess of short stories which I did not think worth preserving, I have done my best to eliminate from the record by refusing all requests for permission to reprint them, and I hope I have done a good job of making them hard to unearth.

Leslie Charteris

It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people don't care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done.

Wynonna Judd

I told him there was one city that they must not bomb without my permission and that was Kyoto.

Henry L. Stimson

Liberalism does not preclude an organisation of the flow of money in which some channels are used in decision making while others are only good for the payment of debts.

Jean-Francois Lyotard

I hated Chris, my brother. I would pull his hair and kick him, until one day my father gave him permission to fight back. I'll be apologizing to him for the rest of my life.

Stevie Nicks

Don't be afraid of showing affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men are more helped by sympathy than by service. Love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present.

Sir John Lubbock

Don't be afraid of showing affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men are more helped by sympathy than by service. Love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present.

Sir John Lubbock

I don't think any one person, whether artist or not, has been given permission by anyone to put the responsibility of the way things are on anyone else.

Robert Rauschenberg

Going to the library was the one place we got to go without asking for permission. And they let us choose what we wanted to read. It was a feeling of having a book be mine entirely.

Rita Dove

The public wishes itself to be managed like a woman; one must say nothing to it except what it likes to hear

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.

Francesca Lia Block

In the silence of night I have often wished for just a few words of love from one man, rather than the applause of thousands of people.

Judy Garland

Walter Bagehot

What then is freedom? The power to live as one wishes.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

We belong to the camp of peace. We believe in peace. We believe that our one God wishes us to live in peace and wishes peace upon us, for these are His teachings to all the followers of the three great monotheistic religions, the Children of Abraham.

King Hussein I

The horse knows how to be a horse if we will leave him alone... but the riders don't know how to ride. What we should be doing is creating riders and that takes care of the horse immediately.

Charles de Kunffy

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.

Oscar Wilde

Pretexts are not wanting when one wishes to use them.

Carlo Goldoni

Plenty of people wish to become devout, but no one wishes to be humble.

Joseph Addison

People wish to be poets more than they wish to write poetry, and that's a mistake. One should wish to celebrate more than one wishes to be celebrated.

Lucille Clifton

You can be a French Canadian or an English Canadian, but not a Canadian. We know how to live without an identity, and this is one of our marvellous resources.

Marshall McLuhan

One of the great attractions of patriotism - it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.

Aldous Huxley

One cannot with impunity try to transfer this task entirely to mechanical assistants if one wishes to figure something, even though the final result is often small indeed.

Max Webber

Of course the other and more serious way in which it all happens is that one finds in poems and language some quality one appropriates for oneself and wishes to reproduce.

Robert Fitzgerald

No poet or novelist wishes he were the only one who ever lived, but most of them wish they were the only one alive, and quite a number fondly believe their wish has been granted.

W. H. Auden

Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes and seeing them gratified.

Samuel Johnson

Journalism wishes to tell what it is that has happened everywhere as though the same things had happened for every man. Poetry wishes to say what it is like for any man to be himself in the presence of a particular occurrence as though only he were alone there.

Archibald MacLeish

It's so hard to know what to do when one wishes earnestly to do right.

George Bernard Shaw

It is one of the most effective attitudes of the neurotic to measure thumbs down, so to speak, a real person by an ideal, since in doing so he can depreciate him as much as he wishes.

Alfred Adler

God has made Canada one of those nations which cannot be conquered and cannot be destroyed, except by itself.

Norman Angell

If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another.

Winston Churchill

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

Gilles Villeneuve

If God wants us to do a thing, he should make his wishes sufficiently clear. Sensible people will wait till he has done this before paying much attention to him.

Samuel Butler

I write journals and would recommend journal writing to anyone who wishes to pursue a writing career. You learn a lot. You also remember a lot... and memory is important.

Judy Collins

He who receives money in trust to administer for the benefit of its owner, and uses it either for his own interest or against the wishes of its rightful owner, is a thief.

Jose Marti

An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens . . . There has never been a moment of my life in which I should have relinquished for it the enjoyments of my family, my farm, my friends and books.

Thomas Jefferson

Exercise is done against one's wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse.

Everyone wishes to have truth on his side, but not everyone wishes to be on the side of truth.

Nikita Khrushchev

Early to bed and early to rise is a bad rule for anyone who wishes to become acquainted with our most prominent and influential people.

George Ade

Art is about expressing the true nature of the human spirit in whatever way one wishes to express it. If it is honest, it is beautiful. If it is not honest, it is obvious.

Corin Nemec

Although one may fail to find happiness in theatrical life, one never wishes to give it up after having once tasted its fruits.

Anna Pavlova

A wise unselfishness is not a surrender of yourself to the wishes of anyone, but only to the best discoverable course of action.

David Seabury

A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, - a mere heart of stone.

Charles Darwin

Aspiration sees only one side of every question; possession many

James Russell Lowell

For me, commerce is of trivial import; love, faith, truth of character, the aspiration of man, these are sacred; nor can I detach one duty, like you, from all other duties, and concentrate my forces mechanically on the payment of moneys

Ralph Waldo Emerson

For me, commerce is of trivial import; love, faith, truth of character, the aspiration of man, these are sacred; nor can I detach one duty, like you, from all other duties, and concentrate my forces mechanically on the payment of moneys

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Living in cities is an art, and we need the vocabulary of art, of style, to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living. The city as we imagine it, then, soft city of illusion, myth, aspiration, and nightmare, is as real, maybe more real, than the hard city one can locate on maps in statistics, in monographs on urban sociology and demography and architecture.

Jonathan Raban

The government is good at one thing...it knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say 'see if it weren't for the government you wouldn't be able to walk

Harry Browne

Am I going home to idleness? No, no. My feet and hands may be still, not so the mind--that has its aspirations yet, and it will work, for it has a law unto itself. Idleness is one thing, doing is another.

Lew Wallace

When you look at a city, it's like reading the hopes, aspirations and pride of everyone who built it.

Hugh Newell Jacobsen

It takes a certain level of aspiration before one can take advantage of opportunities that are clearly offered.

Michael Harrington

I stand on the shoulders of countless people, yet there is one extraordinary person who is my life aspiration - that person is my mother, Celina Sotomayor.

Sonia Sotomayor

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.

Marcus Aurelius

When you look at a city, it's like reading the hopes, aspirations and pride of everyone who built it.

Hugh Newell Jacobsen

Remember what being an adult is: It has nothing to do with money or awards

Frank Abagnale

If we have reason to believe someone is preparing an attack against the U.S., has developed that capability, harbours those aspirations, then I think the U.S. is justified in dealing with that, if necessary, by military force.

Dick Cheney

Everyone desires health, happiness, security, peace of mind and true expression.

Joseph Murphy

I have no aspirations of world domination through the pop charts. None at all.

Anne Hathaway

God has never ceased to be the one true aim of all right human aspirations.

As a result of the World War and of a peace whose imperfections and risks are no longer denied by anyone, are we not even further away from the great aspirations and hopes for peace and fraternity than we were one or two decades ago?

Hjalmar Branting

There has been only a civil rights movement, whose tone of voice was adapted to an audience of liberal whites.

Stokely Carmichael

Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president's spouse. I wish him well!

Barbara Bush

And who knows? Somewhere out there in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president's spouse. I wish him well!

Barbara Bush

The appreciative smile, the chuckle, the soundless mirth, so important to the success of comedy, cannot be understood unless one sits among the audience and feels the warmth created by the quality of laughter that the audience takes home with it.

James Thurber

A writer is someone who can make a riddle out of an answer.

Karl Kraus

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.

Charlie Chaplin

Absolutely lonely people have few personal interactions of any kind.

Martha Beck

Booksellers are the most valuable destination for the lonely, given the numbers of books that were written because authors couldn't find anyone to talk to.

Alain de Botton

A lonely man is a lonesome thing, a stone, a bone, a stick, a receptacle for Gilbey's gin, a stooped figure sitting at the edge of a hotel bed, heaving copious sighs like the autumn wind.

John Cheever

Not content to have the audience in the palm of his hand, he goes one further and clinches his fist.

Alfred Jarry

If I am a legend, then why am I so lonely?

Judy Garland

It is usually expensive and lonely to be principled.

Paul Theroux

An ideal museum show would be a mating of Brideshead Revisited with House & Garden. provoking intense and pleasurable nostalgia for a past that none of its audience has had.

Robert Hughes

Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?

Haruki Murakami

Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?

Haruki Murakami

My biggest fear is that I will become too comfortable with the idea of being lonely for the rest of my life.

Unknown

I know the night is not the same as the day: that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist, and the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started.

Ernest Hemingway

Georg Trakl

Freedom is a lonely battle, but if the United States doesn't lead it - sometimes imperfectly, but mostly with honor - who will?

There are wonderful things in real jazz, the talent for improvisation, the liveliness, the being at one with the audience.

Henri Matisse

There are wonderful things in real jazz, the talent for improvisation, the liveliness, the being at one with the audience.

Henri Matisse

Economics is a subject profoundly conducive to cliche, resonant with boredom. On few topics is an American audience so practiced in turning off its ears and minds. And none can say that the response is ill advised.

John Kenneth Galbraith

Honestly, you always have to put the teams with tradition up there, ... It's always a big rivalry for us.

Aaron Williams

No President has ever done more for human rights than I have.

George Walker Bush

Sometimes one is without the pleasure of playing. But when the silence of the audience is perfect, we recover that.

Andre Segovia

Gardening, I told myself, is the most sociable of hobbies. The very nature of one's field of activities demands an audience. No one wants flowers to blush unseen or waste their sweetness.

Barbara Cheney

There is no such thing as a Mass Mind. The Mass Audience is made up of individuals, and good advertising is written always from one person to another. When it is aimed at millions it rarely moves anyone.

Fairfax Cone

Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president's spouse. I wish him well.

Barbara Bush

Advertising practitioners are interpreters. But unlike foreign language interpreters, adpeople must constantly learn new languages. They must understand the language of each new product, and speak the language of each new target audience.

Jef I. Richards

I have been told that one of the reasons the astronomers of the world cooperate is the fact that there is no one nation from which the entire sphere of the sky can be seen. Perhaps there is in that fact a parable for national statesmen, whose political horizons are all too often limited by national horizons.

Adlai Stevenson

When a subject is highly controversial... one cannot hope to tell the truth. One can only show how one came to hold whatever opinion one does hold. One can only give one's audience the chance of drawing their own conclusions as they observe the limitations, the prejudices, the idiosyncrasies of the speaker.

Virginia Woolf

One of my chief regrets during my years in the theater is that I could not sit in the audience and watch me

John Barrymore

A touchstone to determine the actual worth of an "intellectual", find out how he feels about astrology.

Robert Heinlein

Standing ovations have become far too commonplace. What we need are ovations where the audience members all punch and kick one another.

George Carlin

Write while the heat is in you. The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience.

Henry David Thoreau

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done the zest of creating things new.

Antoine de Saint

Association with one's fellows is essential to the renewal of the zest for life and is indispensable to the maintenance of the courage to fight those battles consequent upon the ascent to the higher levels of human living

Midwayer Commission

I feel like one / Who treads alone / Some banquet-hall deserted, / Whose lights are fled, / Whose garlands dead / And all but he departed!

Thomas Moore

When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned

Herbert Clark Hoover

There are four types of persons, the dead, who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist, independent and self-directed, the sick, who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the unusual source of succor, the dull, who know that God is the eternal companion and watchman, but who remember it only off and on when the idea is potent and powerful, and lastly the healthy, who have steady belief in the Lord and who live in His Comforting Creative Presence always.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

When I saw what a mess everything was in I asked for my money back on the ticket. I would have felt I was deserting. If everyone of any value leaves France, what will remain of France?

Henri Matisse

Our enemy sees us clearly. ... They will not start a war. They're worried about one thing: If democracy develops here, if we succeed, we will win

Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev

No one invites him to come in and sit down he is like a crow in a deserted house. Caught in birth and death, separated from God for such a long time, the whole world is wasting away.

Guru Nanak

To be conscious means not simply to be, but to be reported, known, to have awareness of one's being added to that being.

William James

There is an increasing awareness of the interrelatedness of things. We are becoming less prone to accept an immediate solution without questioning its larger implications.

Arthur Erickson

A nice pop star would do you nice on one of those deserted islands.

Tom Felton

One of the most important accomplishments of the Caucus is raising awareness with law enforcement and communities nationwide on the issues of child safety and Internet safety.

Nick Lampson

An intelligent, energetic, educated woman cannot be kept in four walls even satin-lined, diamond-studded walls without discovering sooner or later that they are still a prison cell.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

An intelligent, energetic, educated woman cannot be kept in four walls even satin-lined, diamond-studded walls without discovering sooner or later that they are still a prison cell.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

Most people don't have the money to spend on advertising to create awareness among readers, nor do they have the contacts at newspapers or magazines to get their books reviewed.

Sara Paretsky

A girl in a convertible is worth five in the phonebook.

Warren Edward Buffett

I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it

Dwight David Eisenhower

As much experience, education and awareness as one can attain is important for a comedian.

Shelley Berman

As I stand here today and tell you about these, I am heavy with an awareness of the fact that I am in more than one sense a product of both the Chinese and Western cultures, in harmony and in conflict.

Chen Ning Yang

The mind fixed in the awareness of the ONE is line a rock; unaffected by doubt, stable, secure

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The mind fixed in the awareness of the ONE is line a rock; unaffected by doubt, stable, secure

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

There is one awareness among all created beings. None have been created without this awareness.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Even when no one is seeing, God is watching your actions always. Do everything with this awareness.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

He placed the soul in the body which He had fashioned. He protects the Creation which He has created. With their eyes, they see, and with their tongues, they speak; with their ears, they bring the mind to awareness. With their feet, they walk, and with their hands, they work; they wear and eat whatever is given.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Doing one's duty, however small, in an unattached manner gives rise to the awakening of self-awareness.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

What is a demanding pleasure that demands the use of ones mind! Not in the sense of problem solving, but in the sense of exercising discrimination, judgment, awareness.

Ayn Rand

The euro will raise the citizens' awareness of their belonging to one Europe more than any other integration step to date

Gerhard Schroeder

Although it is difficult to pinpoint the physical base or location of awareness, it is perhaps the most precious thing concealed within our brains. And it is something that the individual alone can feel and experience. Each of us cherishes it highly, yet it is private

Dalai Lama

The greatest religious problem today is how to be both a mystic and a militant; in other words how to combine the search for an expansion of inner awareness with effective social action, and how to feel one's true identity in both

Ursula K. LeGuin

Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Let the spirit out - Discard all thoughts of reward, all hopes of praise and fears of blame, all awareness of one's bodily self. And, finally closing the avenues of sense perception, let the spirit out, as it will

Bruce Lee

If there is pain, use it as an awareness, as meditation, as a sharpening of the soul. And when pleasure is there, use it as a droning, as a forgetfulness. Both are ways to reach God. One is to remember yourself totally, and one is to forget yourself totally.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one

M. Scott Peck

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.

W. Eugene Smith

I've made all my money on my own without my family and I work very hard, ... Just listening to my father . . . So just basically following that and following my heart.

Paris Hilton

The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.

Thomas Merton

Praying without ceasing is not ritualized, nor are there even words. It is a constant state of awareness of oneness with God.

Peace Pilgrim

A pas de deux is a dialogue of love. How can there be conversation if one partner is dumb?

Rudolf Nureyev

A pas de deux is a dialogue of love. How can there be conversation if one partner is dumb?

Rudolf Nureyev

You are a king by your own fireside, as much as any monarch in his throne

Miguel de Cervantes

Heaven is going to be like this life, only better. It will be like this life with all its joys and beauties and pleasures, but without the drawbacks -- with all the assets but none of the liabilities.

David Brandt Berg

It is a useless life that is not consecrated to a great ideal. It is like a stone wasted on the field without becoming a part of any edifice.

Jose Rizal

If two men on the same job agree all the time, then one is unnecessary. If they disagree all the time, then both are useless.

Darryl Zanuck

If two men on a job agree all the time, then one is useless. If they disagree all the time, then both are useless.

Darryl F. Zanuck

If everyone were clothed with integrity, if every heart were just, frank, kindly, the other virtues would be well-nigh useless.

Moliere

I like being 35, I like having a bit of money to spend on music and useless gadgets. The net is providing new ways to communicate and cooperate that just didn't exist in the 80s.

Malcolm Wilson

I have departed from this planet and I have left behind my poor earthly ones with their occupations which are as many as they are useless; at last I am living in the scintillating splendor of the stars, each of which used to seem to me as large as millions of suns.

Jules Massenet

I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace, that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a congress.

Peter Stone

I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us. There is one God looking down on us all. We are all the children of one God. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.

Geronimo

How can a doctor judge a woman's sanity by merely bidding her good morning and refusing to hear her pleas for release? Even the sick ones know it is useless to say anything, for the answer will be that it is their imagination.

Nellie Bly

Facts, according to my ideas, are merely the elements of truths, and not the truths themselves; of all matters there are none so utterly useless by themselves as your mere matters of fact.

Henry Mayhew

Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.

Arthur Conan Doyle

Considered now as a possession, one may define culture as the residuum of a large body of useless knowledge that has been well and truly forgotten.

Albert J. Nock

The more one gets to know of men, the more one values dogs.

Alphonse Toussenel

Life is not fair...Anyone who says it is, or even that it ought to be, is a fool or worse.

William M. Kucmierowski

The president overstepped his authority when he asked the NSA to eavesdrop on Americans' international phone calls without obtaining a warrant.

Sherrod Brown

Mr. Truman studiously avoided giving power to his White House staff that has been characteristic of recent administrations. Staff people in the White House, with no responsibility but incredible authority is one of the reasons we're now in so much trouble.

Stuart Symington

That's why editors and publishers will never be obsolete: a reader wants someone with taste and authority to point them in the direction of the good stuff, and to keep the awful stuff away from their door.

Walter Jon Williams

The Church, during the apostolic age, did not consist of isolated, independent congregations, but was one body, of which the separate churches were constituent members, each subject to all the rest, or to an authority which extended over all.

Charles Hodge

The whole basis of the Constitution was a restriction of power, and the whole basis of the federalist system was that there was not one sovereign centralized power from which all authority flows.

Roy Moore

The two principles referred to are Authority and Liberty, and the names of the two schools of Socialistic thought which fully and unreservedly represent one or the other of them are, respectively, State Socialism and Anarchism.

Benjamin Tucker

Now they call in all of the authority figures they can find and hire them - the cost has gone up. The picture may or may not get better, but definitely, it gets more cumbersome.

Don Bluth

Every one of our greatest national treasures, our liberty, enterprise, vitality, wealth, military power, global authority, flow from a surprising source: our ability to give thanks.

Tony Snow

One of the things that is wrong with America is that everybody who has done anything at all in his own field is expected to be an authority on every subject under the sun.

Elmer Davis

The fate of every democracy, of every government based on the sovereignty of the people, depends on the choices it makes between these opposite principles, absolute power on the one hand, and on the other the restraints of legality and the authority of tradition.

John Acton

Authority pisses me off. I think everyone should be able to drink and get loud whenever they want.

James Hetfield

Senior development specialists in the Treasury can be counted on one hand. America's government is not even aware of the gap between its commitments and action, because almost nobody in authority understands the actions that would be needed to meet the commitments.

Jeffrey Sachs

If there be one principle more deeply rooted than any other in the mind of every American, it is, that we should have nothing to do with conquest

Thomas Jefferson

But I recognize no infallible authority, even in special questions; consequently, whatever respect I may have for the honesty and the sincerity of such or such an individual, I have no absolute faith in any person.

Mikhail Bakunin

I am a liberated woman. And I do believe if a woman does equal work she should be paid equal money. But personally I am feminine and I do like male authority to lean on.

Julie Andrews

We have one authority and one law and everyone has the responsibility to follow that law and that authority.

Mahmoud Abbas

If one sticks too rigidly to one's principles,one would hardly see anybody,

Agatha Christie

The improver of natural knowledge absolutely refuses to acknowledge authority, as such. For him, skepticism is the highest of duties; blind faith the one unpardonable sin.

Thomas Huxley

To be free in an age like ours, one must be in a position of authority. That in itself would be enough to make me ambitious.

Hannah Arendt

The defiance of established authority, religious and secular, social and political, as a world-wide phenomenon may well one day be accounted the outstanding event of the last decade.

Hannah Arendt

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.

Marlene Dietrich

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.

Marlene Dietrich

You can believe in God without believing in immortality, but it is hard to see how anyone can believe in immortality and not believe in God

Ernest Dimnet

One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.

Robert A. Heinlein

The state produced in the laboratory may be likened to a light doze, compared to the profound slumber induced by the preponent authority system of a national government.

Stanley Milgram

Understand that all battles are waged on an unconscious level before they are begun on the conscious one, and this battle is no different. The power structure wishes us to believe that the only options available are those which they present to us, we know this is simply not true, and therefore we must redefine the terrain of this conflict, and clearly, it is a conflict of worldviews and agendas.

Teresa Stover

The single most important thing that anyone can do in this world is to marry the right person, in the right place, with the right authority.

Bruce R. McConkie

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administrationís duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.

Senator John Kerry

New faces have more authority than accustomed ones.

Euripides

The love of fame is almost another name for the love of excellence; or it is the ambition to attain the highest excellence, sanctioned by the highest authority, that of time.

William Hazlitt

The love of fame is almost another name for the love of excellence; or it is the ambition to attain the highest excellence, sanctioned by the highest authority, that of time.

William Hazlitt

The current state of the news media is partially to blame for the publicís general lack of information vital for responsible citizenship in a democracy. The news media has become an aspect of show business, offering merely infotainment. It has evolved into an entity that tends to function as a public relations agency for wealthy and powerful multinational corporations, members of Congress, the current Presidential Administration including the administrations that preceded it. The news media is being utilized as a political tool of suppression and propaganda by those in power, and propaganda is psychological in nature. Full of half-truths and utter misinformation, itís an arrogant and very commercial strategy that is implemented because it appeals to emotions, fear being the main one relentless talk of national security, personal and community safety, can trigger childhood insecurities and indoctrinated views of authority.

Teresa Stover

A leading authority is anyone who has guessed right more than once.

Frank A. Clark

It is wholly wrong to blame Marx for what was done in his name , as it is to blame Jesus for what was done in his

Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn

The insolence of authority is endeavoring to substitute money for ideas

Frank Lloyd Wright

We are all hungry and thirsty for concrete images. Abstract art will have been good for one thing: to restore its exact virginity to figurative art

Salvador Dali

One should choose a wife with the ears, rather than with the eyes.

French Proverb

Religion is the possibility of the removal of every ground of confidence except confidence in God alone. Piety is the possibility of the removal of the last traces of a firm foundation upon which we can erect a system of thought.

Karl Barth

At first a woman doesn't want anything but a husband, but just as soon as she gets one, she wants everything else in the world.

Elbert Hubbard

One good husband is worth two good wives, for the scarcer things are, the more they are valued.

Benjamin Franklin

Sadder than the beggar is the man who eats alone in public.

Jean Baudrillard

I bought a ticket on Airline Bizarre ... a one-way round-trip ticket.... You leave any Monday and they bring you back the previous Friday.... that way, you still have the†weekend.

You are more powerful than you can possibly imagine. And it is incumbent upon you to use that power--not only for yourself, but for everyone else around you.

Jennifer Beals

The great medical facilities are a relief for the parents, too, who do not have to think about caring for their young ones on their own for a weekend. They have a great time.

Jami Gertz†

The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty, and truth. To make a goal of comfort or happiness has never appealed to me; a system of ethics built on this basis would be sufficient only for a herd of cattle

Albert Einstein

Middle age is when you are sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it is not for you.

Ogden Nash

One may be better than his reputation or his conduct, but never better than his principles.

Niocolas Valentin de Latena

Money is like muck, not good except it be spread.

Francis Bacon

Associate with men of good quality, if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
