Aspects of life here civility, courtesy, coziness have always bound Britons to their country . . . They are part of the British myth, along with lovely countryside, dogs and horses, rose gardens, the Armada, the Battle of Britain.
R. W. Apple
And the storm went on. It roared, it bellowed, and it screeched: it thumped and it kerwhalloped. The great seas would come bunt agin the rocks, as if they were bound to go right though to Jersey City, which they used to say was the end of the world.
Laura E. Richards
To the extent that animals continue to die needlessly, we are morally bound to speak.
Nathan Winograd
There are lots of bad things that can happen to a food economy that’s both extensive and centralized. There’s no substitute for petroleum. To have a growth economy based on a declining fuel supply is bound to be stressful.
Wendell Berry
I esteem it above all things necessary to distinguish exactly the business of civil government from that of religion and to settle the just bounds that lie between the one and the other.

How little room Do we take up in death, that, living, know No bounds!

Don Marquis
Life’s a voyage that’s homeward bound.
Herman Melville
The Aryan stock is bound to triumph.
Winston Churchill
Some find Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran’s poetry preachy and moralizing, but I find it plenty enlightening—it’s hard to object to the melodic, cosmic of mysticism of a line like ‘That which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.’
I’m duty-bound to follow the law and apply to the law to the facts as I find them.

D. H. Lawrence
The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on weaker than you. One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.
Shams Tabrizi
It just seduces you when you read a story and your brain relates to it. You recognize or connect with it. You identify with it; you’re bound to.
Danny Boyle
If any friend desire thee to be his surety, give him a part of what thou hast to spare; if he press thee further, he is not thy friend at all, for friendship rather chooseth harm to itself than offereth it. If thou be bound for a stranger, thou art a fool; if for a merchant, thou puttest thy estate to learn to swim.
Walter Raleigh

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
I laugh, mirthless, a mad laugh. I savor the scowl on her face, the hate in her eyes. She was like a machine; she was cold and emotionless, bound by logic alone. And I broke her.
Veronica Roth
I hold the gun out from my body, my arms straight, just as Four taught me, when that was his only name. I used a gun like this to defend my father and brother from simulation-bound Dauntless. I used it to stop Eric from shooting Tobias in the head. It is not inherently evil. It is just a tool.
Veronica Roth
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
These things, regrettably, are bound to occur when one is married and befriended.
Gail Carriger
For whatever reason, God has blessed me with the ability, put me in a position to make these leaps and bounds. I’m fulfilling my part of the bargain, which is to give back and be a positive influence on others.
Denzel Washington
Economic transactions between national bodies who are at the same time the supreme judges of their own behavior, who bow to no superior law, and whose representatives cannot be bound by any considerations but the immediate interest of their respective nations, must end in clashes of power.
Friedrich August von Hayek
We all have a thirst for wonder. It’s a deeply human quality. Science and religion are both bound up with it. What I’m saying is, you don’t have to make stories up, you don’t have to exaggerate. There’s wonder and awe enough in the real world. Nature’s a lot better at inventing wonders than we are.
Carl Sagan
Our image of happiness is indissolubly bound up with the image of the past.

Nicolaus Copernicus
In the midst of the happiness they brought there was always a lurking shadow. The shadow of incompatibility; of the impossibility of being at once bound and free. The garden breeds a longing for the wild; the wild a homesickness for the garden.
Dorothy Richardson
It’s bound to be one hell of a steel wheelin, railroadin good time…while the western country rolls by and the smoke rises blacker than musical notes pouring out of that stoked-up-and-chuggin iron chariot.
Ketch Secor
Every place but that in which one is born is equally strange and wondrous. Once beyond the bounds of the city walls, and none knows what may happen. We have stepped forth into the Land of Faerie, but at least we are in the open air.
Joseph Jacobs
People are timid. They don’t take chances. Naturally, they’re bound. They are afraid of the light. They are afraid of their own power. In the land of willpower, anything is possible.
Frederick Lenz
Man, he is constantly growing and when he is bound by a set pattern of ideas or way of doing things, that’s when he stops growing

Benito Mussolini
Chum was a British boy’s weekly which, at the end of the year was bound into a single huge book; and the following Christmas parents bought it as Christmas presents for male children.
A. E. van Vogt
The essence of chastity is not the suppression of lust, but the total orientation of one’s life towards a goal. Without such a goal, chastity is bound to become ridiculous. Chastity is the sine qua non of lucidity and concentration.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Public opinion sets bounds to every government, and is the real sovereign in every free one.

Kate Elliott
Any medical man who predicts exactly when a patient will die, or exactly how long he will live, is bound to make a fool of himself. The human factor is always incalculable. The weak have often unexpected powers of resistance, the strong sometimes succumb.
Agatha Christie
I feel a very, very strong bind, and really I’m bound to this country, we either have a border or we don’t. People can come into the country, we welcome people to come but they have to come in legally.

There is no pattern the human mind can devise that does not exist already within the bounds of nature…Everything we do, see, write, notate, all are an echo of the deep seams of the universe. Music is the invisible world made visible through sound.
Kate Mosse
The torment that so many young women know, bound hand and foot by love and motherhood, without having forgotten their former dreams.
Simone de Beauvoir
I always think before an important shot: What is the worst that can happen on this shot? I can whiff it, shank it, or hit it out-of-bounds. But even if one of those bad things happens, I’ve got a little money in the bank, my wife still loves me, and my dog won’t bite me when I come home.
Cary Middlecoff
When every memory has been made and the pages start to fade. And every prayer you ever prayed is heaven bound. When you think the ride is over, you’re back at the beginning. Love is never-ending.
Brad Paisley
The only equitable manner in my opinion, of judging the character of a man is to examine if there are personal calculations in his conduct; if there are not, we may blame his manner of judging, but we are not the less bound to esteem him.

Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase ones taxes.
Learned Hand
Which is why I’d like to tip off law enforcement to an even larger child-abusing religious cult. Its leader also has a compound, and this guy not only operates outside the bounds of the law, but he used to be a Nazi and he wears funny hats. That’s right, the Pope is coming to America this week and ladies, he’s single!
Bill Maher
To go beyond the bounds of moderation is to outrage humanity.
Blaise Pascal

Louisa May Alcott
I was loved as a kid; I was raised with more love and emotional support than most folks could wish for my memories aged nought to ten are all bound up together in a mesh of innocence and fun.

Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next – and disappear.
Joshua Foer
The role of humankind is to use the cultural and social environment it has created to devise new global values…. Human relations with nature are intimately bound up in interpersonal relations and with the relation of the self and its inner life.

James Madison
Where there is love, there is bound to be heartache.

Ian Hart
If a person can build a fence around himself, he is bound to do it.

George F. Kennan
In history, she wasn’t there while we reenacted the Lincoln-Douglas Debate, and Mr. Lee tried to make me argue the Pro-Slavery side, most likely as punishment for some future liberally minded paper I was bound to write.

Lord Kelvin

Frederick Lenz
I know I’ve had an attitude that can explode, but I’m trying my best to not step out of bounds.
Jermell Charlo
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.
George Orwell
Coastal sailing as long as it is perfectly safe and easy commands no magic. Overseas expeditions are invariably bound up with ceremonies and ritual. Man resorts to magic only where chance and circumstances are not fully controlled by knowledge.
Bronislaw Malinowski
When you have too much faith in something, it’s bound to hurt you. Too much faith in anything will suck you dry. In this way, all the world is a vampire.
Poppy Z. Brite

John Locke
For we are all bound in stories, and as the years pile up they turn to stone, layer upon layer, building our lives.
Steven Erikson
The welfare system in this country has literally crippled millions. It has gotten people bound and gagged so that they cannot get off it. It is such a fouled-up system.
Shelton Smith
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children…
Wendell Berry
Give up the awful disease that is creeping into our national blood, that idea of ridiculing everything, that loss of seriousness. Give that up. Be strong and have this Shraddha, and everything else is bound to follow.
Swami Vivekananda
Because we are human, because we are bound by gravity and the limitations of our bodies, because we live in a world where the news is often bad and the prospects disturbing, there is a need for another world somewhere, a world where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers live.
Roger Ebert
When you let the wolves guard the hen house, there’s bound to be a few chicken dinners.
James St. James
Then sleep the seasons, full of might; While slowly swells the pod, And rounds the peach, and in the night The mushroom bursts the sod. The winter comes: the frozen rut Is bound with silver bars; the white drift heaps against the hut; and night is pierced with stars.
Coventry Patmore
Nowadays we don’t think much of a man’s love for an animal; we laugh at people who are attached to cats. But if we stop loving animals, aren’t we bound to stop loving humans too?

Charles M. Schwab
We have often been attracted to the story of the other, the outcast. And he and I just loved working together, so it just kept happening, and our relationship is completely bound up with our work. We enjoy each other’s art.
Julie Taymor
Our firmest convictions are apt to be the most suspect; they mark our limitations and our bounds. Life is a petty thing unless it is moved by the indomitable urge to extend its boundaries.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
When happiness gets into your system, it is bound to break out on your face. While money can’t buy happiness it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery. You always know, at this very moment, exactly what it would be to look, and feel, and be, and act completely Happy.
Adi Da
I think today the players are too nice to one another, but that might change with the unbalanced schedule, with teams playing each other more and more. When you face each other that much, with that much at stake, something’s bound to happen.
Dennis Eckersley
I’m glad I’ve been wrong enough to keep in practice. . . You can’t avoid it, you’ve got to learn to handle it. If you only come face to face with your own mistakes once or twice in your life it’s bound to be extra painful. I face mine every day–that way they ain’t usually much worse than a dry shave.
Larry McMurtry
Today I will go to wait for her again, because I cannot help it, because my whole being seems now to be bound up in the being of one so different from myself and yet so exquisitely familiar that I can scarely understand what has happened.
Elizabeth Kostova
To be bound by traditional martial art style or styles is the way of the mindless, enslaved martial artist. But to be inspired by the traditional martial art and to achieve further heights is the way of genius.
Bruce Lee
I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave.

Nowhere on the shore is the relation of a creature to its surroundings a matter of a single cause and effect; each living thing is bound to its world by many threads, weaving the intricate design of the fabric of life.
Rachel Carson
Don’t you realize that the sea is the home of water? All water is off on a journey unless it’s in the sea, and it’s homesick, and bound to make its way home someday.

Swami Vivekananda
Personally, I had no confines: there were no bounds, no boundaries that I felt when I got in the ring.
Mark Henry

W. Earl Brown
As you go into light for longer and longer periods, as you progress in your meditation practice, you transform, you become illumined, you overcome all limitation, all sorrow, and all pain. You learn not to be bound by desire, and eventually you transcend death itself.
Frederick Lenz
But I shall give less thought to the future, I shall work in the present. I feel such work is within my power. For I only succeed in small things, and when I am tried by anxiety, I am bound to say it is the small joys that release me.
Georges Bernanos
Science, philosophy and religion are bound to converge as they draw nearer to the whole.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
He who asserts he is free, shall be free. He who says he is bound, bound he shall remain.
Swami Vivekananda
Beings are owners of their actions, heirs of their actions; they originate from their actions, are bound to their actions, have their actions as their refuge. It is action that distinguishes beings as inferior and superior.
Gautama Buddha
Some are bound to die young. By dying young a person stays young in people’s memory. If he burns brightly before he dies, his brightness shines for all time.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Internal and external nature, mind and matter, are in time and space, and are bound by the law of causation.
Swami Vivekananda

Kevin Shields
I’m not sure if you can blame everything on the American way of life, but the United States are big. So, if you have a lot of people there, the percentage of stupid people is bound to be higher.
Stephen Malkmus
Any man who makes a speech more than six times a year is bound to repeat himself, not because he has little to say, but because he wants applause and the old stuff gets it.
William Feather

Je Tsongkhapa
Just because I am wheelchair-bound doesn’t mean I don’t get around.
Maya Angelou

Cassandra Clare
Ballet is the repetitive training of the body for the purpose of executing steps in traditional fashion. It is tied to and bound by the past. It is a disciplined beauty consciously preserved in the image of the old days in societies that were class-conscious and appreciative of elitist physical expertise.
Shirley MacLaine
What is gained through ignorance is bound to be lost through ignorance
Siddharth Katragadda
The ability to know one’s limitations, to recognize the bounds of one’s own comprehension—this is a kind of knowing that approaches wisdom.
Leah Hager Cohen
Let us say your wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend makes you happy. If they leave, you’re bound to be unhappy. You are the slave of the thing that makes you happy. You are a junkie and human relationships can be expensive habits.
Frederick Lenz
I must for myself insist that when finished, that is when all the parts are in place and are working, that now it has become an object and will therefore have its boundaries as definite as the prow, the stern, the sides, and bottom bound as a boat.
John Marin
If you’re in enough places at enough times, then some of them are bound to be the right ones.
Guy Kawasaki
I start with a concern about the growth of federal government. I start with a perspective concerned about the growth of that power, and containing it within the bounds of the Constitution.
Ken Cuccinelli
A LAW, by the very meaning of the term, includes supremacy. It is a rule which those to whom it is prescribed are bound to observe. This results from every political association.
Alexander Hamilton

Kobo Abe
Anyone who is popular is bound to be disliked.
Yogi Berra
But our minds are bound to the yardstick of yesterday, today and tomorrow, and with that yardstick we try to inquire into the unknown, to measure that which is not measurable.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
I see you over there, just clinging to the wall. Because they told you like ivy you were bound to crawl. But you kept looking up, girl, and I know why. You knew someday you were gonna touch the sky.
John Hiatt
Oh yes!’ and suddenly the wintry frost-bound look of care had left Mr. Thornton’s face, as if some soft summer gale had blown all anxiety away from his mind; and, though his mouth was as much compressed as before, his eyes smiled out benignly on his questioner.
Elizabeth Gaskell
The family. We are a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms. . . and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
Erma Bombeck
I think they must mix blood, otherwise the human race is bound to degenerate. Mixing blood is marvelous. It makes strong and intelligent men. It takes away tired spirits.
Josephine Baker
The regional tags are often pejorative and dismissive. Don’t think of place-bound stories, in other words, but of stories with a strong sense of place.
John Dufresne
The Conservative Party is not honouring the commitment to Lords reform and, as a result, part of our contract has now been broken. Clearly I cannot permit a situation where Conservative rebels can pick and choose the parts of the contract they like, while Liberal Democrat MPs are bound to the entire agreement.
Nick Clegg
Gaming is a kind of tacit confession that the company engaged therein do in general exceed the bounds of their respective fortunes, and therefore they cast lots to determine upon whom the ruin shall at present fall, that the rest may be saved a little longer.
William Blackstone
Any man who preaches real love is bound to beget hate. It is as true of democratic fraternity as a divine love; sham love ends in compromise and common philosophy; but real love has always ended in bloodshed.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
We had a word with him about diving and since then the lad’s come on leaps and bounds.
Billy Dodds
MMA has improved my life leaps and bounds.
Jimi Manuwa
The problem with promises is that once you’ve made one, it’s bound to be broken. It’s like an
unspoken cosmic rule.
Bree Despain
I think we’re all sort of imprisoned by – or at least bound to – the choices we make… You want to say no at the right time and you want to say yes more sparingly.
Bill Murray
Berlin is the place to which I am most closely bound by human and scientific ties.
Albert Einstein
The man who has the largest capacity for work and thought is the man who is bound to succeed.
Henry Ford
It is fatal to decide, intellectually, what good poetry is because you are then in honour bound to try to write it, instead of the poems that only you can write.
Philip Larkin
Brave people add up to an aristocracy. The democracy of thou-shalt-not is bound to be a collection of weak men.
D. H. Lawrence
It is bound to come a moment when what seems close is still very far away.
Paulo Coelho
A satyagrahi is sometimes bound to use language which is capable of two meanings, provided both the meanings are obvious and necessary and there is no intention to deceive anyone.
Mahatma Gandhi
A universe with a God would look quite different from a universe without one. A physics, a biology where there is a God is bound to look different. So the most basic claims of religion are scientific. Religion is a scientific theory.
Richard Dawkins
If you play divine music, spiritual music, then you are bound to give and get satisfaction.
Sri Chinmoy
When you are with everyone but me, you’re with no one. When you are with no one but me, you’re with everyone. Instead of being so bound up with everyone, be everyone. When you become that many, you’re nothing. Empty.
Atoms have a nucleus, made of protons and neutrons bound together. Around this nucleus shells of electrons spin, and each shell is either full or trying to get full, to balance with the number of protons-to balance the number of positive and negative charges. An atom is like a human heart, you see.
Kim Stanley Robinson
The master of a single trade can support a family. The master of seven trades cannot support himself. The wind is never for the sailor who knows not to what port he is bound.
Og Mandino
The individual who violates the rules in a zealous search for an answer to the problem may overstep the bounds and thereby suffer the loss of his relationships to the organized medical profession.
Morris Fishbein
The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley of ties that bound man to his “natural superiors,” and left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than callous “cash payment.
Karl Marx
I think one of the geniuses of Bound and The Matrix and Memento is the complete collaboration of the effort. There were no rotten apples.
Joe Pantoliano
The price of being oneself is so high and involves so much ruthlessness toward others (or what looks like ruthlessness in our duty-bound culture) that very few people can afford it.
May Sarton
When Bridget [Jones] does finally get pregnant, she ‘s bound to mess it up, but what I tried to show is the importance of love and kindness rather than perfection, and the importance of support from friends who help you to laugh at your mistakes and pick yourself up afterwards.
Helen Fielding
There is a certain freedom in giving up all hope. One is no longer bound by the cords of dread or fear; you simply move toward the inevitable without thinking on the consequences.
Rachel Caine
Literature is by definition opinionated. It is bound to provoke the arguments in many quarters, not excluding the hometown or even the family of the author.
Kurt Vonnegut
Ford Fairlane was one of those movies that was so much fun to make that it was bound not to be a big hit.
Renny Harlin
Teaching is a very habit-bound endeavor. We’re unsettled by the unfamiliar. We’re creatures of habit too.
Carol Ann Tomlinson
Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: I shall try again and again, and I am bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but I have to defy the obstacles.
Sri Chinmoy
Fear is bound to disappear when you realize that failure is not something shameful, damaging, destructive, or painful, but something natural.
Sri Chinmoy
Baseball people are generally allergic to new ideas; it took years to persuade them to put numbers on uniforms, and it is the hardest thing in the world to get Major League Baseball to change anything—even spikes on a new pair of shoes—but they will eventually…they are bound to.
Branch Rickey
The immortality of great art seems bound up with the inevitable loss of its original surface meaning and its rebirth in the spirit of every new age.
Anton Ehrenzweig
The morning drips her dew for me, Noon spreads an opal canopy. Home-bound, the drifting cloud-crafts rest Where sunset ambers all the west…
Robert Loveman
Turns out, the enjoyment I receive from growing the game through content creation and collaborations, and the work I do with the Cybersmile Foundation around cyberbullying, is leaps and bounds above what I got out of playing competitively.
Paige Spiranac
He who is too busy to pray will be too busy to live a holy life. Satan had rather we let the grass grow on the path to our prayer chamber than anything else.
Edward McKendree Bounds
The wise man sets bounds even to his innocent desires.
Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time.
Grace Abbott
This is all you have to do. Sit down once a day to the novel and start working without internal criticism, without debilitating expectations, without the need to look at your words as if they were already printed and bound. The beginning is only a draft. Drafts are imperfect by definition.
Walter Mosley
I felt I was duty-bound under contract to stick with Cleveland, and I can truthfully say, in all my playing days there and everywhere, I never shirked a duty to baseball.
In art, as long as you have ideas and think, you are bound to deform nature. Art is deformation.
Fernando Botero
Punctuality is a quality the need of which is bound up with social co-operation. It has nothing to do with the relation of the soul to God, or with mystic insight, or with any of the matters with which the more elevated and spiritual moralists are concerned.
Bertrand Russell
I believe that in public worship we should do well to be bound by no human rules, and constrained by no stereotyped order.
Charles Spurgeon
If you are a person this world will seem full of persons. When you are the being you will not feel bound. You will know every being, look in the eyes of every being, and you know, you will recognize yourself. These things are not poetry. They are simple truths. You will experience them. In your heart they will be confirmed.
Once we are bound together to our brothers by a common good that is outside us, then we can breathe. Experience teaches us that love is not to gaze at one another but to gaze in the same direction. There is no comradeship except through unity on the same rope, climbing towards the same peak.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
One of the nicest things about living in America is the fact that sooner or later you are practically bound to get an award of some sort or other.
Hermione Gingold
Elvis is bound to be dead. Look at all the vultures in his vicinity.
Sharyn McCrumb
The possibilities of prayer are found in its allying itself with the purposes of God, for God’s purposes and man’s praying are the combination of all potent and omnipotent forces.
Edward McKendree Bounds
Paleontologists have tried to turn Archaeopteryx into an earth-bound, feathered dinosaur. But it’s not. It is a bird, a perching bird. And no amount of ‘paleobabble’ is going to change that.
Alan Feduccia
What is love? From the spiritual and inner point of view, love is self-expansion. Human love binds and is bound. Divine Love expands, enlarges itself.
Sri Chinmoy
The ingredients for another Palestinian uprising are always there because as long as there is so much violence it is bound to explode. How, I cannot tell. But people will not accept it forever.
Amira Hass
The intellectual, the moral, the religious seem to me all naturally bound up and interlinked together in one great and harmonious whole.
Ada Lovelace
Nirvikalpa Samadhi means that you’ve gone off the board; you’ve gone off the map. There is no way to describe it. You have attained liberation and are no longer bound by the cycle of existence. You just are, and yet you’re not, at the same time.
Frederick Lenz
Men seem more bound to the wheel of success than women do. That women are trained to get satisfaction from affiliation rather thanachievement has tended to keep them from great achievement. But it has also freed them from unreasonable expectations about the satisfactions that professional achievement brings.
Phyllis Rose
Could the best and kindest of us who depart from the earth have an opportunity of revisiting it, I suppose he or she (assuming that any Vanity Fair feelings subsist in the sphere whither we are bound) would have a pang of mortification at finding how soon our survivors were consoled.
William Makepeace Thackeray
In all their jollity in this world, the wicked are but as a book fairly bound, which when it is opened is full of nothing but tragedies. So when the book of their consciences shall be once opened, there is nothing to be read but lamentations and woes.
Richard Sibbes
We are bound by nothing except belief.
Ernest Holmes
Those who know God the best are the richest and most powerful in prayer. Little acquaintance with God, and strangeness and coldness to Him, make prayer a rare and feeble thing.
Edward McKendree Bounds
Couple in the next room bound to win a prize, they’ve been going at it all night long.
Paul Simon
Europe was founded as a community bound together by solidarity.
Martin Schulz
Whenever a people are bound together in loyalty to a story that includes something as strange as the Sermon on the Mount, we are put at odds with the world.
Stanley Hauerwas
The law of love knows no bounds of space or time.
Mahatma Gandhi
I love the idea of stepping out of the band situation into a solo world with no boundaries, no expectations, where nothing is out of bounds.
Tommy Shaw
To worry is to become accessible, unwittingly accessible. And once you worry you cling to anything out of desperation; and once you cling you are bound to get exhausted or to exhaust whoever or whatever you are clinging to.
Carlos Castaneda
I came from nothing. I came from the projects and welfare and ended up a millionaire with no frame of reference. I was bound to hit a wall sooner or later.
Iyanla Vanzant
Love was a feeling completely bound up with color, like thousands of rainbows superimposed one on top of the other.
Paulo Coelho
Fashion is the abortive issue of vain ostentation and exclusive egotism … tied to no rule, and bound to conform to every whim of the minute.
William Hazlitt
The important thing to understand about American history, wrote Mr. Ibis, in his leather-bound journal, is that it is fictional, a charcoal-sketched simplicity for the children, or the easily bored.
Neil Gaiman
Qualityless simply means there is no way to discuss it. There is no way to pin it down. It could be anything at any given moment since infinity is not bound even by itself, nor the words that human beings choose to try and talk around it.
Frederick Lenz
Especially in the last 10 years, the writing on animated shows has jumped by leaps and bounds.
Will Friedle
To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it’s trivial or not time-bound, you won’t engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
If you tell people enough times that they are unhappy, incomplete, possibly insane and definitely selfish there is bound to come a grey morning when they wake up with the beginning of a nasty cold and wonder if they are lonely rather than simply “alone.”
Sara Maitland
Those who mistake their good luck for their merit are inevitably bound for disaster.
J. Christopher Herold
Christ made the bread the sacrament of his body only: wherefore as the bread is no similitude of his blood, so am I not bound or ought to affirm, that his blood is there present.
William Tyndale
All June I bound the rose in sheaves, Now, rose by rose, I strip the leaves.
Robert Browning
The Destiny of every Nation is bound to the Destiny of all Others.
Carlo Azeglio Ciampi
How had it happened, Simon thought, that he was bound to these people—to people who thought of him as nothing more than a Downworlder, half human at best?
Cassandra Clare
Like Spain, I am bound to the past.
William S. Burroughs
Healing the self means committing ourselves to a wholehearted willingness to be what and how we are-beings frail and fragile, strong and passionate, neurotic and balanced, diseased and whole, partial and complete, stingy and generous, twisted and straight, storm-tossed and quiescent, bound and free.
Paula Gunn Allen
But you know it’s hard to tell When you’re in the spell if it’s wrong or if it’s real But you’re bound to lose If you let the blues get you scared to feel
Joni Mitchell
A holy life does not live in the closet, but it cannot live without the closet.
Edward McKendree Bounds
To begin with myself, then, the utterances of men concerning me will differ widely, since in passing judgment almost every one is influenced not so much by truth as by preference, and good and evil report alike know no bounds.
Praying which does not result in pure conduct is a delusion. We have missed the whole office and virtue of praying if it does not rectify conduct. It is in the very nature of things that we must quit praying, or quit bad conduct.
Edward McKendree Bounds
If I am to constrain you by any law, it must be one by which I am also bound.
Immanuel Kant
Ubuntu is very difficult to render into a Western language… It is to say, ‘My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours.’
Desmond Tutu
When you think of the huge uninterrupted success of a book like Don Quixote, you’re bound to realize that if humankind have not yet finished being revenged, by sheer laughter, for being let down in their greatest hope, it is because that hope was cherished so long and lay so deep!
Georges Bernanos
Primarily, God is not bound to punish sin; he is bound to destroy sin. The only vengeance worth having on sin is to make the sinner himself its executioner.
George MacDonald
I felt exactly like the man in the advertisement who has not devoted fifteen minutes a day to the study of the classics. If only (I thought) I had devoted fifteen minutes a day to the cultivation of the aesthetic attitude! I could bound Afghanistan.
Burton Rascoe
Whatever your personal political feelings are, if you become involved in them publicly you’re bound to come out the loser.
Dusty Springfield
…one exploiting sect, one people of leeches, one single devouring parasite closely and intimately bound together not only across national boundaries, but also across all divergences of political opinion … [Jews have] that mercantile passion which constitutes one of the principle traits of their national character
Mikhail Bakunin
It may be that no life is found, Which only to one engine bound Falls off, but cycles always round.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Mercy is the golden chain by which society is bound together.
William Blake
Study to do another’s will rather than thine own. Choose ever to have less rather than more. Seek ever the lower place and to be subject to all; ever wish and pray that the will of God may be perfectly done in thee and in all. Behold such a man enters the bounds of peace and calm.
Thomas a Kempis
A prolonged war in which a nation takes part is bound to impoverish the breed, since the character of the breed depends on the men who are left.
J. Arthur Thomson
Any revolution which denies the right to criticize is bound to wallow in stagnation and backwardness.

It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.
Galileo Galilei
The most important of your affairs in my view is prayer; whoever prays regularly has protected his faith, but whoever neglects it, is bound to be more negligent in other issues of faith.
The king is as much bound by his oath not to infringe the legal rights of the people, as the people are bound to yield subjection to him. From whence it follows that as soon as the prince sets himself above the law, he loses the king in the tyrant. He does, to all intents and purposes, un-king himself.
Jonathan Mayhew
Even if the effort is bound to fail you still commit completely. It is the commitment that counts for something.
Dario Robleto
When one jumps over the edge, one is bound to land somewhere.
D. H. Lawrence
if one really does try to find out why it is that people don’t leave each other, one discovers a mystery. It is because they can’t; they are bound. And nobody on earth knows what are the bonds that bind them except those two.
Katherine Mansfield
Where loyalty bound creatures together, they became something larger, something new and whole and inexplicable.
Orson Scott Card
The worst effect of tutelage is that it negates self-discipline, and therefore people suddenly released from it are almost bound to make fools of themselves.
Suzanne La Follette
Oft in the stilly night, Ere slumber’s chain has bound me, Fond memory brings the light Of other days around me; The smiles, the tears, Of boyhood’s years, The words of love then spoken; The eyes that shone Now dimmed and gone, The cheerful hearts now broken.
Charles Lamb
All is bound by the law of causation
Swami Vivekananda
Photographs are still being taken but aren’t being shown. There’s one of a skeleton bound at the wrists with pants still around its ankles; if it was a woman, she was likely raped; if it was a man, he was possibly castrated.
Nicholas D. Kristof
You are digging for the answers until your fingers bleed, to satisfy the hunger, to satiate the need…. And as you pray in your darkness for wings to set you free, you are bound to your silent legacy.
Melissa Etheridge
Friends, companions, lovers, are those who treat us in terms of our unlimited worth to ourselves. They are closest to us who best understand what life means to us, who feel for us as we feel for ourselves, who are bound to us in triumph and disaster, who break the spell of our loneliness.
Henry Alonso Myers
[On leaving the U.S. for Italy:] I ought to be accomplishing thrice as much as now, and feel that I am soul-bound and thought-bound in this land of dollars and cents.
Harriet Hosmer
Anything Can Happen, on the other hand, is not only about the atrociousness of the September 11 attack, it is also a premonition of the deadly retaliation that was bound to come.
Seamus Heaney
I think it’s fun to play with worlds that you can add a lot of your own imagination to. With ‘True Blood,’ you’re not limited by anything, there are just leaps and bounds of the imagination you can take with these characters.
Deborah Ann Woll
In meditation, whatever happens is bound to be expressed in creativity.
There is no sphere in which a human being can be supposed to act where one mode of reasoning will not, in every given instance, be more reasonable than any other mode. That mode the being is bound by every principle of justice to pursue.
William Godwin
A monetary order created and managed by politicians and officials is bound to disappoint.
Hans F. Sennholz
At my aunt’s funeral, I promised myself that I wouldn’t be bound by the belief that I’m supposed to stay in anything – whether it’s a relationship, a job, a house, or a circumstance – if it makes me miserable. She gave me the courage to find my own happiness.
Jill Scott
Some artists are bound to an image: Bob Marley has dreadlocks, Matisyahu has a beard. But that’s a reminder that the whole thing is not about style. It’s about music.
SONG You bound strong sandals on my feet, You gave me bread and wine, And sent me under sun and stars, For all the world was mine. Oh, take the sandals off my feet, You know not what you do, For all my world is in your arms, My sun and stars are you.
Sara Teasdale
Human beings, in their thinking, feeling and acting are not free agents but are as causally bound as the stars in their motion.
Albert Einstein
After watching films of Jim Brown, I noticed that he never ran out of bounds. He always ran North and South and that’s what I turned my style into. I was a North and South runner.
Earl Campbell
Nixon’s attempts to order subversion of various departments was bound to come out in some form.
Bob Woodward
The particular phraseology of the Constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the Constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.
John Marshall
I think there are bound to be obstacles in any path to success. I mean, I’m Jewish, and there’s nothing I can do about that. Instead of sitting around and feeling sorry for myself, I got over it and did something with my life.
Zach Braff
He keeps this up, he’s bound to be caught, she thought. And this time they’ll dangle him for certain.
Cinda Williams Chima
I watch a lot of sport on television. I only watch certain sports, and I only watch them live – I don’t think I’ve ever been able to watch a replay of a match or game of which the result was already decided. I feel bound to cheat and look up what can be looked up.
A. S. Byatt
The transfer society is forever testing the bounds of patience of taxpayers. Having reached the limit and still facing loud demands for more benefits, it resorts to deficit financing.
Hans F. Sennholz
If Satan has blinded and bound men and women, how can we ever see souls saved? This is where you and I enter the picture. Spoiling the goods of the strong man has to do with liberating those whom Satan has blinded and is keeping bound. . . . This is where prayer comes in.
Theodore Epp
You cannot force things apart that are bound at the heart.
Ashly Lorenzana
That was the rule. Break one of my rules once, and I’m bound to break many more.

Through the confessional system the Catholic church spied upon the lives of its congregants. While Latin mass excluded most people who could not speak Latin from an understanding of the very system of thought that bound them.
Julian Assange
An editor is bound to avoid the meshes of the law, which are always infinitely more costly to companies, or things, or institutions, than they are to individuals.
Anthony Trollope
Man is free in his imagination, but bound by his reason.
Yisroel Salanter
You must be born for your physician, otherwise you are bound to perish because of your physician.
Friedrich Nietzsche
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace. They swore, if we gave Them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease. But when we disarmed They sold us, and delivered us, bound, to our foe, And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”
Rudyard Kipling
Other duties become pressing and absorbing and crowd our prayer. “Choked to death” would be the coroner’s verdict in many cases of dead praying if an inquest could be secured on this dire, spiritual calamity.
Edward McKendree Bounds
Only bad golfers are lucky. They’re the ones bouncing balls off trees, curbs, turtles and cars. Good golfers have bad luck. When you hit the ball straight, a funny bounce is bound to be unlucky.
Lee Trevino
Do not allow your sorrow or your rage to become hostility toward people on the basis of their ethnicity or their religious views. That is unacceptable; it is out of bounds, and if you break the law, we will prosecute you for it.
John Ashcroft
Imagination, on the contrary, which is ever wandering beyond the bounds of truth, joined to self-love and that self-confidence we are so apt to indulge, prompt us to draw conclusions which are not immediately derived from facts.
Antoine Lavoisier
No matter how you look at it, all the emotions connected with love are not really immortal; like all other passions in life, they are bound to fade at some point. The trick is to convert love into some lasting friendship that overcomes the fading passion.
Harold Pinter
There is no fair wind for one who knows not whither he is bound.
Seneca the Younger
A more secret, sweet, and overpowering beauty appears to man when his heart and mind open to the sentiment of virtue. Then he is instructed in what is set above him. He learns that his being is without bound; that to the good, to the perfect, he is born, low as he now lies in evil and weakness.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The very fact that God has placed a certain soul in our way is a sign that God wants us to do something for him or her. It is not chance; it has been planned by God. We are bound by conscience to help him or her.
Mother Teresa
In the end, robots do things that people can do. So there is a cost above which you can hire somebody to do it, and that bounds the opportunity.
Colin Angle
And in this silence of the dumb and these speeches of the blind, in this medly of people bound together by the same grief, terror and hope, in this hatred and lack of understanding between men who spoke the same tongue, you could see much of the tragedy of the twentieth century.
Vasily Grossman
We are all bound thither; we are hastening to the same common goal. Black death calls all things under the sway of its laws.
[Lat., Tendimus huc omnes; metam properamus ad unam. Omnia sub leges mors vocat atra suas.]
When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.
Catherine Ponder
If you stay in the running-if you have endurance-you are bound to win over those who haven’t.
Glenn Cunningham
the ocean, under the pulsation of lighthouses and noise of bell
advances as usual, looking as if it were not that ocean in which
dropped things are bound to sink–
in which if they turn and twist, it is neither with volition nor
Marianne Moore
To go beyond the bounds of moderation is to outrage humanity. The greatness of the human soul is shown by knowing how to keep within proper bounds. There are two equally dangerous extremes- to shut reason out, and not to let nothing in.
Blaise Pascal
Remember the lessons of history – if we don’t learn from history, we’re bound to repeat it.
Ted Cruz
It all goes back, of course, to Adam and Eve – a story which shows among other things, that if you make a woman out of a man, you are bound to get into trouble.
Carol Gilligan
We have committed ourselves to pursue joint policies, but then national governments say, “We aren’t bound by that.” That is a dramatic situation, because solidarity is a basic principle that cannot be had on an Г  la carte basis. If we have rules that nobody adheres to, then the community will break apart.
Martin Schulz
There will be no future without forgiveness. Any process of peace is bound to collapse if this is missing. There is no way peace and stability can come through the gun of vengeance.
Desmond Tutu
I have a list of titles that I leave at the [library] desk, because they are bound to be written some day, and it’s best to be ahead of the queue.
Jeanette Winterson
When you go into the world today, before you leave your home, promise yourself that you’ll find at least one miracle. Without any limits or bounds on what you think it should look like, simply state for yourself your clear intention that of the many miracles that cross your path, you’ll recognize one of them.
Gregg Braden
My God! I thank Thee for the bath of sleep, That wraps in balm my weary heart and brain, And drowns within its waters still and deep My sorrow and my pain. I thank Thee for my dreams, which loose the bond That binds my spirit to its daily load, And give it angel wings, to fly beyond Its slumber-bound abode.
J. G. Holland
Prayer breaks all bars, dissolves all chains, opens all prisons, and widens all straits by which God’s saints have been held.
Edward McKendree Bounds
There must be a new world if there is to be any world at all!… These days of universal death must be days of universal new birth, if the ruin is not to be total and final! It is Time to make the dullest man consider; and ask himself, Whence he came? Whither he is bound?
Thomas Carlyle
Whenever one does extraordinary things, someone is bound to try to repeat them for themselves. It’s the way of the world.
Catherynne M. Valente
Courts are an aristocratic institution in a democracy. That’s the dilemma for an institution that has the function of reviewing the will of the people. We’re bound to be “anti-majoritarian.”
Rose Bird
Violence is bound sooner or later to exhaust itself but peace cannot issue out of such exhaustion.
Mahatma Gandhi
Nature has introduced great variety into the landscape, but man has displayed a passion for simplifying it. Thus he undoes the built-in checks and balances by which nature holds the species within bounds.
No pleasure here on earth I find
For in this world I’m bound to ramble.
Ralph Stanley
In most good stories, it is the character’s personality that creates the action of the story. If you start with real personality, a real character, then something is bound to happen.
Flannery O’Connor
Yet we met; and fate bound us together at the alter,and I never spoke of passion nor thought of love. She, however shunned society, and, attaching herself to me alone rendered me happy. It is a happiness to wonder; it is a happiness to dream.
Edgar Allan Poe
The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the easy life of the gods would be a lifeless life.
Hannah Arendt
Keep to the middle if you wish to keep moderation. The mid way is the safe way. Moderation abides in the mean, and moderation is virtue. Every abiding place outside the bounds of moderation is only exile to the wise man.
Saint Bernard
Being free means “being free for the other,” because the other has bound me to him. Only in relationship with the other am I free
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
It’s all bound to end in tears.
Wolfgang Paul
There’s bound to be a recovery in [capital spending] sometime soon. We have had basically no capital investment for about year. At some point, machinery wears out, and you’ve got to replace it.
Bruce Bartlett
Thinking that the next person, the next relationship, the next experience will free you – these are foolish thoughts of people who are bound again and again to birth, death and rebrith for thousands and thousands of incarnations.
Frederick Lenz
Enough. Sudden enough. Sudden all far. No move and sudden all far. All least. Three pins. One pinhole. In dimmost dim. Vasts apart. At bounds of boundless void. Whence no farther. Best worse no farther. Nohow less. Nohow worse. Nohow naught. Nohow on.
Samuel Beckett
Think of it like running down a slope. If you attempt to slow down and choose your steps, you’re bound to trip up and stumble.
Tessa Dare
A company is stronger if it is bound by love rather than by fear.
Herb Kelleher
Even after they had stopped modeling for Playboy and had settled down with other men to raise families of their own, Hugh Hefner still considered them his women, and in the bound volumes of his magazine he would always possess them.
Gay Talese
Climate change is not an excuse for the EPA to ignore the bounds of law and issue illegal regulations that will cost jobs, shutter industries, and have little to no positive impact on the environment.
Luther Strange
I have done what I could do in life, and if I could not do better, I did not deserve it. In vain I have tried to step beyond what bound me.
Maurice Maeterlinck
One has to take a somewhat bold and dangerous line with this existence: especially as, whatever happens, we are bound to lose it.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Our lives are bound by physical limits, familial ties, political conditions, and geographical restrictions. Individual freedom takes us beyond them all.
Ai Weiwei
People are bound to get excited when they see a ten-million-ton starship trying to fly down the street.
Terry Pratchett
I’m not strong-willed enough or unkind enough… or maybe simply not wise enough to tell a journalist that a subject is out of bounds.
James Nesbitt
A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end it was never bound to be, and you just have to let go.
Will Smith
