Stand Quotes

I don't like watching golf on TV. I can't stand whispering

"Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from oneís mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down."

Clarissa Pinkola EstÈs

Let no guilty man escape, if it can be avoided. No personal consideration should stand in the way of performing a public duty.

Ulysses Simpson Grant

I think the best friendships are those that can stand the test of time, where the friendship is based more on who you are than on what you do or what you have.

Steve Pavlina

We stand for a use of colour free from the imitation of objects and things as coloured objects. We stand for an aerial vision in which the material of colour is expressed in all of the manifold possibilities our subjectivity can create.

Carlo Carr

To fake it is to stand guard over emptiness

I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect.
