Rest Quotes

Always do right. This will gratify some people, and astonish the rest.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

If someone kisses a woman and goes no further once they are alone together, then in my opinion it's his own fault. A woman who freely surrenders her lips gives the rest very readily.

Crestens de Troies

My responsibility as an artist is to turn up at the page or the piano or the microphone. The rest is up to God.

Nick Cave

Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

Ovid

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

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.

Amelia Earhart

Characteristic of sickness: to stay awake when everything sleeps, when everything is at rest, even the sick man.

Emil Cioran

Racism is one of the biggest taboos in our culture, yet most discrimination against Asian-Americans goes largely unnoticed...its blown off by the rest of the media as a joke, as in "Look at them. They get all up in arms over nothing".

Moran Margaret Cho

And the rising sun shall rise yet higher, destroying with its flaming fire the evil will of the wicked West, but smiling warmly on the rest.

Anthony Burgess

I can hear you, the rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.

George Walker Bush

Sometimes the cure for restlessness is rest.

Colleen Wainwright,

My waking thoughts are all of thee. Your portrait and the remembrance of last night's delirium have robbed my senses of repose. Sweet and incomparable Josephine, what an extraordinary influence you have over my heart. Are you vexed? Do I see you sad? Are you ill at ease? My soul is broken with grief, and there is no rest for your lover.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Thomas Paine was kind of the oh, I don't know. My apologies to Thomas Paine, but kind of the me of the genera I mean, I can't think of anybody else. A guy just saying, "Hey, really, stand up. Come on. We can do it." He was kind of the he was the media guy, really. He just did pamphlets, the rest of us just do TV.

Glenn Beck

It is well known to researchers of nature that one cannot perform even the slightest movement without motivation, meaning without somehow benefiting oneself. When, for example, one moves ones hand from the chair to the table it is because one thinks that by putting ones hand on the table one will thus receive greater pleasure. If one would not think so, one would leave one's hand on the chair for the rest of one's life without moving it an inch, all the more so concerning greater efforts.

Yehuda Ashlag

You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

St. Augustine of Hippo

We are all electric creatures floating in the electric sea of this electric universe. Every electric thing in the entire universe breathes electrically into itself from the rest of the electric universe which is outside of itself. It also breathes out of itself into the rest of the universe.

Walter Russell

Strength of mind is exercise, not rest.

Alexander Pope

With the exception of the New York Times, Fox news, and Lou Dobbs of CNN, and talk radio, the rest of the mainstream media has basically been silenced like a bunch of dumb monkeys.

Curt Weldon

Swallow a toad in the morning and you will encounter nothing more disgusting the rest of the day.

Nicolas de Chamfort

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent, unspeakable memories.

George Eliot

The sword outwears its sheath, and the soul wears out the breast. And the heart must pause to breathe, and love itself have rest.

Lord Byron

For whom he means to make an often guest, One dish shall serve; and welcome make the rest.

Bishop Joseph Hall

Parents: People who spend half their time wondering how their children will turn out, and the rest of the time when they will turn in.

Eleanor Graham Vance

Let no failure, disappointments, death or despair bow down your head. When you experience any of these, take a rest, reflect and find a way around them. Draw strength from your pain and pursue your dreams until you reach glory and happiness.

Dr Joel Akande
