Stopping Quotes

I can now see to the bottom of my own depths, there is nothing stopping my gaze, no obstacle is in the way. And there is nothing there.

Georges Bernanos

Let me tell you this: They shut me down on radio, that's fine, I'll do TV. They shut me down on TV, that's fine, I'll do Internet. They shut me down on the Internet, that's fine, I'll do stage shows. They shut me down on stage shows, that's fine, I'll go door to door. You will have to shoot me in the head. We are not stopping.

Glenn Beck

Everybody’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s a really easy way: stop participating in it.

Noam Chomsky

If you are idle, you are on the road to ruin; and there are few stopping-places upon it. It is rather a precipice than a road

Henry Ward Beecher

While I am proud of a number of accomplishments, there are real costs to being unreasonable. Long hours. Too little time with family. A near incapacity for, as they say, stopping and smelling the roses

Eli Broad

The most obvious and condescending tell-tale sign that manipulation is taking place is that no one takes responsibility for the actions of the administration, itís always some other department who is to blame and never the people who have authority, itís always some nameless foot-soldiers, a ìfew bad apples,î when we all know that such excuses donít hold water, we know who gave the order for soldiers to engage in the abhorrent techniques of torture, we know who told subordinates in the corporation(s) to ìfudge the numbersî and ìbe creative,î we know full well who makes these decisions. President Truman said, ìThe buck stops here,î now the buck effectively floats over many people never stopping anywhere, so thereís no one to blame

Teresa Stover

To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.

Aaron Copland

Those who have taken upon them to lay down the law of nature as a thing already searched out and understood, whether they have spoken in simple assurance or professional affectation, have therein done philosophy and the sciences great injury. For as they have been successful in inducing belief, so they have been effective in quenching and stopping inquiry; and have done more harm by spoiling and putting an end to other men's efforts than good by their own. Those on the other hand who have taken a contrary course, and asserted that absolutely nothing can be known whether it were from hatred of the ancient sophists, or from uncertainty and fluctuation of mind, or even from a kind of fullness of learning, that they fell upon this opinion have certainly advanced reasons for it that are not to be despised; but yet they have neither started from true principles nor rested in the just conclusion, zeal and affectation having carried them much too far.... Now my method, though hard to practice, is easy to explain; and it is this. I propose to establish progressive stages of certainty. The evidence of the sense, helped and guarded by a certain process of correction, I retain. But the mental operation which follows the act of sense I for the most part reject; and instead of it I open and lay out a new and certain path for the mind to proceed in, starting directly from the simple sensuous perception.

Francis Bacon
