Street Quotes

I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex.

Bertrand Russell

The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer.

John Madden

Grab your coat, and get your hat, Leave your worry on the doorstep Just direct your feet, To the sunny side of the street

Dorothy Fields

Worry compounds the futility of being trapped on a dead-end street. Thinking opens new avenues.

Cullen Hightower

Remember the street car cannot turn out.

Charles M. Hayes

Remember folks, street lights timed for 35 mph are also timed for 70 mph.

Jim Samuels

Worry compounds the futility of being trapped on a dead-end street. Thinking opens new avenues

Cullen Hightower

Great things are done when men and mountains meet. This is not done by jostling in the street.

William Blake

Sports are positively essential. It is healthy to engage in sports, they are beautiful and liberal, liberal in the sense that nothing serves quite as well to integrate social classes, etc., than street or public games.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Water Quote:I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes -- and the stars through his soul

Victor Hugo

English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education -- sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street.

E. B. White

In a state-run society the government promises you security. But it's a false promise predicated on the idea that the opposite of security is risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. The opposite of security is insecurity, and the only way to overcome insecurity is to take risks. The gentle government that promises to hold your hand as you cross the street refuses to let go on the other side

Theodore Forstmann

The street is noisy and the men and women are not perfect in the technique of their expression as the statues are. They are ugly and imperfect, incomplete even as human beings, and where they come from and where they go cannot be known. But they are people and therefore infinitely to be preferred to those who stand upon the pedestals of art.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

As Shakespeare himself knew, the peace, the reconciliation that he created on the stage would not last an hour on the street.

Edward Bond

People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better.

Ray Douglas Bradbury

The simplest surrealist act consists in going into the street with revolvers in your fist and shooting blindly into the crowd as much as possible. Anyone who has never felt the desire to deal thus with the current wretched principle of humiliation and stultification clearly belongs in this crowd himself with his belly at bullet height.

Andr Breton

I usually quite like women, but this advert makes me want to kill about 900 of them with my bare hands. It ends with the tiresome ladettes marching down a high street triumphantly singing the Here Come the Girls song out loud, like an invading squadron tormenting the natives with its war cry. Next year they'll probably be armed. Fear this.

Charlton

At ten o'clock every night, we'd hear (he bangs his fist against the wall) and that was our alarm, so we almost ended up naming the band 'Ten PM Stocker', 'cause we recorded on Stocker Street every night and at 10 PM, we had to stop.

Chester Bennington

Many a man's reputation would not know his character if they met on the street.

Elbert Hubbard

Leadership is a two-way street, loyalty up and loyalty down. Respect for one's superiors; care for one's crew.

Grace Murray Hopper

Most of life is routine dull and grubby, but routine is the momentum that keeps a man going. If you wait for inspiration youll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.

Ben Nicholas

A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won't cross the street to vote in a national election.

Bill Vaughan

Each hamlet or village or town should be a place, its own place. This is not a matter of fake historicism or artsy-craftsy architecture. It is a matter of respect for things existing, subtle patterns of place woven from vistas and street widths and the siting and color and scale of stores, houses, and trees.... If the countryside is to prosper, it must be different from city or suburb.... The difference is in part the simple business of containing our towns and giving them boundaries.

Robert Riley

What we have are good gray ballplayers, playing a good gray game and reading the good gray Wall Street Journal. They have been brainwashed, dry-cleaned and dehydrated!... Wake up the echoes at the Hall of Fame and you will find that baseball's immortals were a rowdy and raucous group of men who would climb down off their plaques and go rampaging through Cooperstown, taking spoils.... Deplore it if you will, but Grover Cleveland Alexander drunk was a better pitcher than Grover Cleveland Alexander sober
