Split Quotes

“The scientists split the atom; now the atom is splitting us.”

Quentin Reynolds

When you think of the number of men in the world who hate each other, why, when two men love each other, does the church split?

Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn

I am not so different in my history of abandonment from anyone else after all. We have all been split away from the earth, each other, ourselves.

Andres Cibotti

Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

Society cannot share a common communication system so long as it is split into warring factions.

Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht

Global warming is too serious for the world any longer to ignore its danger or split into opposing factions on it.

TONY BLAIR

Dancing is like bank robbery. It takes split-second timing.

Twyla Tharp

At some point, on our way to a new consciousness, we will have to leave the opposite bank, the split between the two mortal combatants somehow healed so that we are on both shores at once and, at once, see through serpent and eagle eyes. Or perhaps we will decide to disengage from the dominant culture, write it off all together as a lost cause, and cross the border into a wholly new and separate territory. Or we might go another route. The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.

Gloria Evangelina Anzalda

In general I might agree with you: women should not contemplate war, should not weigh tactics impartially, or evade the word enemy, or view both sides and denounce nothing. Women should march for peace, or hand out white feathers to arouse bravery, spit themselves on bayonets to protect their babies, whose skulls will be split anyway, or, having been raped repeatedly, hang themselves with their own hair. These are the functions that inspire general comfort. That, and the knitting of socks for the troops and a sort of moral cheerleading. Also: mourning the dead. Sons, lovers, and so forth. All the killed children.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

Knowledge is indivisible. When people grow wise in one direction, they are sure to make it easier for themselves to grow wise in other directions as well. On the other hand, when they split up knowledge, concentrate on their own field, and scorn and ignore other fields, they grow less wise even in their own field.

Isaac Asimov

There is nothing finer in the world than the telling of tales. Split atoms if you wish, but splitting an infinitiveand getting away with itis far nobler. Lance boils if you wish, but pricking pretensions is often cleaner and always more fun.

Gregory Dale Bear

All the gang of those who rule us Hope our quarrels never stop Helping them to split and fool us So they can remain on top.

Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht

Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, And ate the cheeses out of the vats, And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles, Split open the kegs of salted sprats, Made nests inside men's Sunday hats, And even spoiled the women's chats By drowning their speaking With shrieking and squeaking In fifty different sharps and flats.

Robert Browning
