A lot of gaming and a lot of interaction is no longer physical; it’s all digital and at a distance.

Matthew Mercer
The imagination demands that life be told slant because of its need of distance.

Judith Butler
‘Mr. Peanut’ is not about a man who dreams of killing his wife; that’s jacket copy, to me. ‘Mr. Peanut’ is about the dynamism of marriage and the distances – some tragic, some redemptive – that marriages travel over time, and those travels ain’t always pretty.
Adam Ross
It’s about how you’re like a lighthouse, always searching far into the distance. But the thing you’re looking for is usually close to you and always has been. That’s why you have to look within yourself to find answers instead of searching beyond.
Susane Colasanti
As you put your sights on your goals — no matter how great and compelling they are — as you look into the distance, don’t forget what is right in front of you today.

Satellite communications connect television screens in Japan with television cameras in England, and the distance of half a world loses its meaning.

Bayern is a big club and a big brand, but on a daily basis, it’s a family club. You get to know the physios, the kit man, the chefs. It’s also a club that’s very close to the supporters.

I’m teaching energy and how to manage it, how to handle it, and how to heal with it.
Deborah King
Civilization is the distance man has placed between himself and his excreta.

Charlotte Bronte

I’ve seen a few wild grizzly bears, mostly in Alaska and British Columbia, and always from a distance. But each grizzly I’ve caught sight of was as fearsome and sublime as the last.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
The so-called new Russian man is characterized mainly by his complete exhaustion. You may find yourself wondering if he has the strength to enjoy his new-found freedom.

The event is placed at such a distance, and contained, that these images move beyond the context in which they were made, the geographic setting, and so on, and engage the viewer in a one-to-one relationship solely through their physical presence.
Jean-Marc Bustamante
A shortcut is the longest distance between two points.
Charles Issawi
Al Gore didn’t need to distance himself from Bill Clinton when he ran for president in 2000 because, when he ran, the country was in very good shape: strong economically and not at war. He did it anyway, and it was, in many people’s estimate, mine included, one of the reasons he lost.
Susan Estrich
The night is shattered, and the blue stars shiver in the distance.
Pablo Neruda
When you go to a World Cup, in midfield you need to have players who can score from distance, who can get in the box and obviously play-make.
Jill Ellis
Path presupposes distance; If He be near, no path needest thou at all. Verily it maketh me smile To hear of a fish in water athirst!
Kabir
As a species of animal that evolved to make connections and work together, it feels strange to suppress our desire for contact. People enjoy touching each other, and find joy in seeing each other in person – but now we have to keep our physical distance.
Rutger Bregman
London is a city that offers all kinds of temptations, and whenever I go for a walk I discover things that I would like to bring back as souvenirs. But my resources are very limited. I cannot buy anything, and I make a point of taking my walks a good distance from these riches.
Soseki Natsume
I run at least five miles a day, just long distance.
DeAndre Hopkins
People are like birds – from a distance, beautiful: from close up, those sharp beaks, those beady little eyes.
Richard J. Needham
Distance lasts a day. But Reality lasts a lifetime.
Laura Schlessinger
Now we’re like planets, holding to each other from a great distance. […] Now we’re hundreds of miles apart, our short arms keep us lonely, no one hears what’s in my head. […] It’s March, even the birds don’t know what to do with themselves.
Anne Michaels
The importance of a journey is not measured by the distance covered, but by the destination reached.
Narendra Modi
No, my first figure was a SLAYER eagle. And the dragons and the tribals are all I have got. I wish that I only would have done the SLAYER eagle and not the dragons Вґcoz I like tribals that stand out from a distance. Like you could be a snowblind in the concert and you are still gonna see it. ThatВґs why I like about it.
Kerry King
I close my eyes, thinking that there is nothing like an embrace after an absence, nothing like fitting my face into the curve of his shoulder and filling my lungs with the scent of him.
Jodi Picoult
A wise beautiful lake never desires to be famous, because fame dirty it! To remain pure, distance yourself from the reputation!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
If the submarines, the aerial torpedoes, the poison gas, the liquid fire, the long-distance guns, the hand grenades, the trench mortars, and all the other things injure without killing them, they are sent back again and again after being patched up until they are killed.
Evadne Price
The God of Israel is sometimes a God who hides Himself, but never a God who absents Himself; sometimes in the dark, but never at a distance.
Matthew Henry
Flint has the potential to produce fire, and gems have intrinsic value. We ordinary people can see neither our own eyelashes, which are so close, nor the heavens in the distance. Likewise, we do not see that the Buddha exists in our own hearts.
Nichiren
There are definitely parts of me in most of the protagonists I write, but I find a bit of distance can be useful, so I often find myself better able to write from a point of view that isn’t exactly my own.
John K. Samson
I had zero exposure to creative in WCW up until 1993, 1994. Even then, I was at a distance.
Eric Bischoff
Distance is the only cure for certain diseases.
Zora Neale Hurston
Absences are a good influence in love and keep it bright and delicate.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Cuba is only 90 miles from Florida, but for a long time, the distance between our two countries seemed a lot greater.
Ben Rhodes
The loser, the fool, is embraced in England because there is a recognition of silliness there that allows a person to keep his ambitions and desires at a certain distance. Just being in the race is enough.
Roger Rees
American stuntmen are smart – they think about safety. When they do a jump in a car, they calculate everything: the speed, the distance… But in Hong Kong, we don’t know how to count. Everything we do is a guess. If you’ve got the guts, you do it. All of my stuntmen have gotten hurt.
Jackie Chan
I’m far from immune to the American, perhaps historically male, prejudice toward practical and physical competence; I hope I’ve also considered that prejudice enough to have some distance from it.
Robert Pinsky
I mean, I think from the competitive side, especially as a defensive back, you don’t mind that pressure, going out there on fourth-and-15 or whatever the down and distance.
Jason McCourty
There are goods so opposed that we cannot seize both, but, by too much prudence, may pass between them at too great a distance to reach either.
Samuel Johnson
Our best selves tell us that ‘there but for the grace of God… ‘ and that, in the end, there is no distance, really, between us and them. It is just us. Our best and noble hope is to imitate the God we believe in. The God who has abundant room in God’s grief and heart for us all.
Greg Boyle
I’m not on Twitter. I feel like it has a purpose because there are fans around the world that want to have some sort of interaction with you. But I feel like it is important to still keep some space and some distance, which is why I don’t have a Twitter.
Megan Fox
It’s like why people read scary books or go see scary movies. Because it creates a distance. They’re scared, but they’re not going to get hurt.
Vincent D’Onofrio
One of the things about Fleetwood Mac is, when we’re not together, we don’t talk a lot or keep in touch. We keep a healthy distance.
Lindsey Buckingham
In a few hours one could cover that incalculable distance; from the winter country and homely neighbours, to the city where the air trembled like a tuning-fork with unimaginable possibilities.
Willa Cather
It was a lone voice in the middle of the ocean, but it was heard at great depth and great distance.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Those old ages are like the landscape that shows best in purple distance, all verdant and smooth, and bathed in mellow light.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
The hand opens to the word, opens to distance.
Edmond Jabes
I think it’s important for one to take a certain distance from oneself.
Vaclav Havel
Having wandered some distance among gloomy rocks, I came to the entrance of a great cavern … Two contrary emotions arose in me: fear and desire–fear of the threatening dark cavern, desire to see whether there were any marvelous things in it.
Leonardo da Vinci
Now, I’m not suggesting we’re going to wait 40 years or even four years, but I think we have to put in perspective the fact that we’ve come quite a distance. We have quite a distance to come – go, as well.
Michael Chertoff
People haven’t seen enough of me. My fights haven’t gone the distance, and people have a lot of questions. I want to find out for myself as much as the people do. I want to find out what I can do.
Gerry Cooney
People always ask me, ‘Why do you only write about heartbreak?’ I think I only write when I’m broken, so that’s just what happens. It makes me feel better, but having some distance helps.
Sharon Van Etten
As much as I love and respect my brother, Im doing my best to distance myself from him and kind of show people that, even though we do look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different.
Dave Franco
The family unit is very interesting because these are people that you’re supposed to be the closest to in your life, and yet that’s where you find the greatest distances between people as well – especially between parents and kids.
Taika Waititi
I don’t see my movies. I think it’s healthier and safer to keep a bit of distance. I’m afraid to be disappointed.
Bernardo Bertolucci
Special teams get the shaft when most people talk football. Unless a kicker’s bombing a game-winner or a return man is going the distance, that important third of the game is all but forgotten.
Mark Schlereth
One minute we can be in a small club, the next minute we can be in a coliseum, and the next minute we can be in a small auditorium. It varies, depending on the promoter, the budget, and the travelling distance.
Ben E. King
My silver cord – the link between my body and my spirit – was extremely sensitive. It was what allowed me to sense dreamscapes at a distance. It could also snap me back into my skin.
Samantha Shannon
We all know that we Africans just win medals in middle and long distance, and walking in their footsteps makes me feel proud, you know.
Caster Semenya
I’m trying to focus on the 100 and 200 breaststroke now. There’s no point concentrating on the 50 when it’s not in the Olympics. I’m not going to quit the 50 but it’s not my priority any more. I’ll do it but as part of my bid for gold at the other distances.
Cameron van der Burgh
The secret at the heart of ‘The Memory Keeper’s Daughter’ is something everybody, except for some of the characters, knows in Chapter 1. Some of the narrative tension comes from that distance between what the readers know and what the characters know.
Kim Edwards
The number of medals on an officer’s breast varies in inverse proportion to the square of the distance of his duty from the front line.
Charles Edward Montague
Yet sometimes being a friend meant letting people do things that hurt, like putting distance between you, just because it made them happy.
Ann Aguirre
More of my songs are intended to be funny than almost anyone else. Sometimes maybe it cheers me up a bit. I’ve got a distance from it. Sometimes what I’m writing is more important to me than the rest of my life. It’s more important to me that I’m writing well than anything else.
Randy Newman
The distance we feel from our actions is proportionate to our ignorance of them; our ignorance, in turn, is largely a measure of the length of the chain of intermediaries between ourselves and our acts.
John Lachs
God is still on His throne, we’re still on His ‘footstool,’ and there’s only a knee’s distance between!
Jim Elliot
Distance, n. The only thing that the rich are willing for the poor to call theirs and keep.
Ambrose Bierce
Out of pure spite we pretty much always said the opposite of what the other said, no matter what they said, only to mark distance. That’s how we ended up calling ourselves Satanists, despite the fact that we absolutely were not. There was not a single Satanist in the whole Black Metal scene in Norway in 1991-92.
Varg Vikernes
You can write a radical Norwegian or a conservative Norwegian. And when I changed to a conservative Norwegian, I gained this distance or objectivity in the language. The gap released something in me, and in the writing, which made it possible for the protagonist to think thoughts I had never myself thought.
Karl Ove Knausgard
There will just always be a distance between you and the people around you. Now, [Hillary Clinton] can clearly emotionally connect with her intimates within the zone of trust. It’s just the wall outside the zone of trust is so impermeable.
David Brooks
Distance does not decide who is your brother and who is not. The church is going to have to become the conscience of the free market if it’s to have any meaning in this world – and stop being its apologist.
Bono
I’m exchanging molecules every 30 days with the natural world and in a spiritual sense I know I am a part of it and take my photographs from that emotional feeling within me, rather than from an emotional distance as a spectator.
Galen Rowell
Personalities are like impressionistic paintings. At a distance, each person is ‘all of a piece’; up close, each is a bewildering complexity of moods, cognitions, and motives.
Theodore Millon
George W. Bush is not preoccupied with his legacy – nor with his popularity. He never has been. He has always led based on core conviction and strong principles and has believed that time and distance would allow for context.
Mark McKinnon
It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the dog’s owner – and the distance you are from your car.
Demetri Martin
Sabbath is that uncluttered time and space in which we can distance ourselves from our own activities enough to see what God is doing.
Eugene H. Peterson
Running away from something doesn’t do anything except put distance.
Rob Halford
Melodrama is one of the most stunning art forms. These are stories where the emotions are big, and the situations are big, and the artists believe in the situation dramatically. There’s no irony or distance.
James Gray
Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.
John Spence
The straightest line between a straight distance is two points.
George Carlin
The occult sciences were simply ancient technologies for making the occult or unseen manifest in the world – whether that was the influence of the stars and planets, the mysterious meanings of lines inscribed in your palm, or forms of action at a distance like magic and spells.
Deborah Harkness
Who is moving in the distance? It is the clock’s pendulum, Hired by the god of death To measure life.
Gu Cheng
We live in an age of reproduction. Most of what makes up our personal picture of the world we have never seen with our own eyes–or rather, we’ve seen it with our own eyes, but not on the spot: our knowledge comes to us from a distance, we are televiewers, telehearers, teleknowers.
Max Frisch
It’s very easy, when we’re reading those articles on the 20th page of ‘The New York Times,’ to distance ourselves and say, ‘It’s someone else.’
Lynn Nottage
Aquarius is a miscellaneous set of stars all at different distances from us, which have no connection with each other except that they constitute a (meaningless) pattern when seen from a certain (not particularly special) place in the galaxy (here).
Richard Dawkins
Opportunistic relationships can hardly be kept constant. The acquaintance of honorable people, even at a distance, does not add flowers in times of warmth and does not change its leaves in times of cold: it continues unfading through the four seasons, becomes increasingly stable as it passes through ease and danger.
Zhuge Liang
Distance is the soul of beauty.
Simone Weil
Anarcharsis, on learning that the sides of a ship were four fingers thick, said that “the passengers were just that distance from death.
Diogenes Laertius
Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that
Michael Leunig
Long-distance relationships are another way of avoiding intimacy.
Danielle Steel
Absence is to love as wind is to fire: it extinguishes the little flame, it fans the big.
Umberto Eco
The best mark of a player is to beat him over a long distance.
Adrian Lewis
I am best viewed from a distance… and at night.
Jenny Eclair
I remembered watching the film from Alfred Hitchcock, ‘Dial M for Murder,’ and he shot almost all of that movie in one room. There was a genius in what Hitchcock did by manipulating things in that room so that you could see the distances between things like the tables and the vases because of how he used perspective.
Dario Argento
I needed targets, different things to go for on a daily basis—a distance on the treadmill or a weight goal. Without them, I wasn’t celebrating myself enough, and I got really good at beating myself up.
Ali Vincent
We have food deserts in our cities. We know that the distance you live from a supplier of fresh produce is one of the best predictors of your health. And in the inner city, people don’t have grocery stores. They have to get on a bus and take a long ride to get to a source of fresh produce.
Michael Pollan
When I was a lieutenant in Special Forces many many years ago, I thought I was getting fat. And I started running, and I started running distance, which I enjoyed.
Stanley A. McChrystal
…and the distance between them, millimeters only, the space of a breath, opened up and deepened, became a cavern at whose edge he stood.
Kim Edwards
The Founders of the U.S. gave the senators a term of office three times longer than that of a representative precisely to encourage a reflective frame of mind, a distance from the passions of the voters, and a capacity for deliberative consideration.
Al Gore
A short distance away from thriving city centres in virtually all of our cities, you will find areas of endemic worklessness, alienation, crime and antisocial behaviour.
Chris Grayling
We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.
Alan Turing
The introduction of optical fiber systemswill revolutionize the communications network. The lowtransmission loss and the large bandwidth capability of the fibersystems allow signals to be transmitted for establishingcommunications contacts over large distances with few or noprovisions of intermediate amplification.
Charles K. Kao
I love to believe that there’s one god but there’s many different religions so there’s just the question of which long distance company you pick.
Adam Ferrara
I had used my sense of humor; I had called it proportion, perspective. But perspective is distance.
Bel Kaufman
Every time a confident, successful woman like Marissa Meyer distances herself from feminism, I think of Athena. Athena women, with all their brilliance and strategy, are the ones smashing up through layers of glass. They tend to identify with men, keeping femininity at a distance.
Justine Musk
Like all things in the universe, we are destined from birth to diverge. Time is simply the yard-stick of our separation. If we are particles in a sea of distance, exploded from an original whole, then there is a science to our solitude. We are lonely in proportion to our years.
Ian Caldwell
The stars are not so strange as the mind that studies them, analyzes their light, and measures their distance.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Sometimes it’s easier to love people when there is a healthy distance between us.
Marianne Williamson
For authoritarians such as Lenin and ЕЅiЕѕek, the dichotomy in politics is state power or no power, but I refuse to concede that these are the only options. Genuine politics is about the movement between these poles, and it takes place through the creation of what I call “interstitial distance” within the state.
Simon Critchley
At age 22 I set what I insist is an all-time record for distance hitchhiking in Bermuda shorts: 3,700 miles in three weeks.
Hunter S. Thompson
The car resembles a dragon fly or any other jumping animal that moves shorter distances in straight lines and then changes its direction at different points.
Fritz Todt
Maybe that’s what you got when you stood over your grief, facing it finally. A sense of its depths, its area, the distance across, and the way over or around it, whichever you chose in the end.
Sarah Dessen
To me, wearing glasses is no pleasure, but once I conceded that I simply couldn’t properly judge distance without them, I began to experiment. I tried glasses and found them uncomfortable. I switched to contact lenses, and they also bothered me.
Arnold Palmer
As far as exercise, I play a lot of lacrosse and rugby, and I’m an avid distance swimmer. Nope, none of that is true. I do walk a lot, though.
Joshua Malina
You look for the way something is built. You see a Prada bag and you look at the stitching at the back. If it’s a fake one, then they make it really cheap. If it’s a real Prada bag and I will look at it, I will count every single stitch and make sure they are exact distance apart.
Corey Harrison
In a social context, digital technology introduces you to neighbours of the mind – people who are separated by distance, but close to you in thought and interest.
Nick Harkaway
I was in my early thirties writing about my early twenties, so there was this way of seeing my younger self from enough of a distance to have perspective but also not to feel that I had to protect myself. My dreams for myself then would have undersold myself in a way.
Dani Shapiro
Humor is the healthy way of feeling “distance” between one’s self and the problem, a way of standing off and looking at one’s problem with perspective.
Rollo May
The people I see from my window. In the huts, in the distance. They’re all dressed the same.’ ‘Ah, those people,’ said Father, nodding his head and smiling slightly. ‘Those people…well, they’re not people at all, Bruno.’ Bruno frowned. ‘They’re not?’ he asked, unsure what Father meant by that.
John Boyne
Liberalism seems to be related to the distance people are from the problem.
Whitney M. Young
Feminists are now being vilified in politics, erdogan used to speak more embracingly, saying he was the leader of everyone, whether they voted for him or not. He sounds as if he puts a distance between himself and half the nation.
Elif Safak
Distance sometimes lets you know who’s worth keeping and who’s worth letting go.
Frank Ocean
We’re living in a literary age, at least in America, that is marked by a sense of distance, a coolness, in all senses of that word. To be too obviously, unapologetically emotional is to risk being considered foolish, or at the very least not serious.
Hanya Yanagihara
With Hyperloop One, we are on the brink of the first great breakthrough in transportation technology of the 21st century, eliminating the barriers of time and distance and unlocking vast economic opportunities.
Shervin Pishevar
Philosophy is the art and law of life, and it teaches us what to do in all cases, and, like good marksmen, to hit the white at any distance.
Seneca the Younger
Only poetry can measure the distance between ourselves and the Other.
Charles Simic
You never know what’s going to happen en route to the airport or station and the last thing you want is to get there just as your train or plane is disappearing into the distance. Get there early, read a book, have a coffee and don’t get stressed.
Vera Lynn
I don’t want to leave New York and leave my family. I don’t like the distance. I just did a movie in California and it’s kind of excruciating to be away from them so I think there is that sense.
Sigourney Weaver
The Pride of ancestry increases in the ratio of distance.
George William Curtis
Once there is a distance between you and your thought process, a new freedom is born. With this freedom, a new perception arises.
Jaggi Vasudev
Souls bound together can’t be forever torn apart by distance and neither by death.
Patti Callahan Henry
My dad used to travel for a long distance from our house for work. I wanted to gift him an automatic car, so that he does not have much stress. I was able to buy it and I was very happy.
Smriti Mandhana
I love long-range rifle shooting. I like anything that deals with precision. I also find that with archery. On my ranch, I have my own range with 3-D targets of animals and hay bales from different distances.
Paul Walker
If you decide on your direction, God will give you the energy for the distance.
T. B. Joshua
Light belongs to the heart and spirit. Light attracts people, it shows the way, and when we see it in the distance, we follow it.
Ricardo Legorreta
The reason I’m in San Diego is not because I want distance from South Africa but because I want proximity to the people I love. But I don’t envy growing up in America. As ugly as aspects of it were, my biggest blessing was to be born a South African.
Athol Fugard
Receive no satisfaction for premeditated impertinence – forget it, forgive it – but keep him inexorably at a distance who ofв€Јfered it.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
The distance between taking social action and having the knowledge is as wide as the mouth of the Mississippi.
Mort Sahl
I learned some invaluable lessons in Nashville that apply to both farming and show business: Do not corner something you know is meaner than you; keep skunks of all kinds at a distance; if you forgive your enemies, it messes up their heads.
Willie Nelson
The idea of a ‘happening’ is that there is little distance between the viewer and it, whatever ‘it’ is. It’s an experience that’s on-going and evolving.
Doug Aitken
It is easy to sympathize at a distance,’ said an old gentleman with a beard. ‘I value more the kind word that is spoken close to my ear.
E. M. Forster
My dad taught us that there’s no greater distance than that between first and second place.
Janet Jackson
Error increases with distance. It’s true with bowling, and it’s true with families.
Steve Farrar
Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.
Gary Ryan Blair
Music is one of the toughest industries, so I respect everybody who has travelled any distance, come far in this music business and achieved anything because it is so hard, and there are so many people out there these days.
G-Eazy
One movement toward light becomes a clear signpost on a long road.
Mary Anne Radmacher
The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still small voice of conscience.

Dave Franco
To regain our liberty (and our distance), we must slow the images down.

Tate Donovan
I miss you even more than I could have believed; and I was prepared to miss you a good deal.
Vita Sackville-West
Women and people of low birth are very hard to deal with. If you are friendly to them, they get out of hand, and if you keep your distance, they resent it.
Confucius
No daughter and mother ever live apart, no matter what the distance between them.
Christie Watson
Our senses will not admit anything extreme. Too much noise confuses us, too much light dazzles us, too great distance or nearness prevents vision, too great prolixity or brevity weakens an argument, too much pleasure gives pain, too much accordance annoys.
Blaise Pascal
If you’ve never stared off into the distance, then your life is a shame.
Adam Duritz
All great artists know that part of their task is to light up the distance between two human beings.
Nadeem Aslam
If you ever think about giving up, remember why you held on for so long.
Hayley Williams
There were two free public libraries within walking distance of my home; I remember taking six books home from every visit, the limit set by the library.
Martin Lewis Perl
The great commander, who seemed by expression of his visage to be always on the look-out for something in the extremest distance, and to have no ocular knowledge of anything within ten miles, made no reply whatever.
Charles Dickens
I do intend to achieve my education goals and obtain my college degree through distance programs.
Gerald Green
I like the storytelling and reading the letters, the long-distance dedications.
Casey Kasem
There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday.
Robert Nathan
While in a vintage restaurant…”the past isn’t quaint while you’re in it. Only at a safe distance, later, when you see it as decor, not as the shape your life’s been squeezed into.
Margaret Atwood
It is very possible that I could have ended up on 80 acres of land by myself, and fallen in love at a distance with a gorgeous woman I could never have been with.
Peter Sarsgaard
It goes against the grain for me to do what so often happens, to speak inhumanly about the great as if a few millennia were an immense distance. I prefer to speak humanly about it, as if it happened yesterday, and let only the greatness itself be the distance.
Soren Kierkegaard
I’m used to short distances and short bursts of energy; it was just fastest.
Shannon Miller
The virtuous woman must be treated like a relic – adored, but not handled; she should be guarded and prized, like a fine flower-garden, the beauty and fragrance of which the owner allows others to enjoy only at a distance, and through iron walls.
Miguel de Cervantes
Distance was a dangerous thing, she knew. Distance changed people.
Rohinton Mistry
Nature is like a beautiful woman that may be as delightfully and as truly known at a certain distance as upon a closer view; as to knowing her through and through; that is nonsense in both cases, and might not reward our pains.
George Santayana
I’m at my best when there’s distance between me and a man.
Nell Carter
Messi doesn’t have to do it in the Premier League to prove himself. The Champions League is the ultimate club competition. If he was in the Premier League, he’d be the best player by some distance.
Gary Lineker
In Jesus Christ, there is no distance or separation between the medium and the message: it is the one case where we can say that the medium and the message are fully one and the same.
Marshall McLuhan
Balzac, you know, our great Balzac, he wrote interesting things about how in literature you keep distance in order to express great feelings. You have to keep a distance – and it’s exactly the same with acting.
Isabelle Huppert
Love songs come in many guises and are seemingly written for many reasons – as declarations or to wound – I have written songs for all of these reasons – but ultimately the love songs exist to fill, with language, the silence between ourselves and God, to decrease the distance between the temporal and the divine.
Nick Cave
Distance of Time and Place do really cure what they seem to aggravate; and taking Leave of our Friends resembles taking Leave of the World, concerning which it hath been often said, that it is not Death but Dying which is terrible.
Henry Fielding
The car is not a rabbit or a deer that jumps around in sweeping lines, but it is a man-made work of technology in need of an appropriate roadway. Rather, the car resembles a dragon fly or any other jumping animal that moves shorter distances in straight lines and then changes its direction at different points.
Fritz Todt
The shortest distance between two jokes makes a perfect speech.
Orlando Aloysius Battista
I’ve rarely kept my distance from kind of – I don’t know if we can call it politics, but kind of, civic engagement and that kind of thing, except I tended to think, ‘Well, do it yourself before you start telling other people what they should be doing.’
David Byrne
To those who view the voyage of life from the port of departure the bark that has accomplished any considerable distance appears already in close approach to the farther shore.
Ambrose Bierce
The hardest thing about being a woman is different for everyone. For me, it’s the mirage of ‘having it all’ somewhere off in the distance. I think in many ways you do have to choose.
MO
Farewells can be shattering, but returns are surely worse. Solid flesh can never live up to the bright shadow cast by its absence. Time and distance blur the edges; then suddenly the beloved has arrived, and it’s noon with its merciless light, and every spot and pore and wrinkle and bristle stands clear.
Margaret Atwood
9 saw the first direct-dialed long-distance telephone call, between New York and San Francisco. Of course, back in that primitive era the parties had to speak to each other manually; today one or both ends of the conversation would be carried on by a machine.
Dave Barry
I would not presume from this distance, nor would America presume to say who should be the leader of the Iraqi nation.
Colin Powell
I play disturbed people a lot, but always with a bit of distance or tongue-in-cheek. Most of the villains I play are essentially harmless.
Christopher Walken
Intelligence is what you use when you don’t know what to do.
Jean Piaget
Some actors can distance themselves from the parts they play, but I fall into the category who use bits of themselves.
James Nesbitt
We have said that Israel has had a very bad history with the United Nations, and whoever cares for himself in Israel distances himself from that Organization.
Yitzhak Shamir
At lunch Francis [Crick] winged into the Eagle to tell everyone within hearing distance that we had found the secret of life.
James D. Watson
Women’s marathoning was not added as an Olympic medal event until 1984 due to unfounded and bizarre concerns among Olympic organizers about women’s ability to run longer distances. It was finally added after much campaigning.
Mary Pilon
I am constantly preoccupied with how to remove distance so that we can all come closer together, so that we can all begin to sense we are the same, we are one.
David Hockney
I know people have embraced Donald Trump. He may not have embraced them. But he has every – he should distance himself. This sort of alt-right movement is very disturbing.
Donna Brazile
The variety of colour in objects cannot be discerned at a great distance, excepting in those parts which are directly lighted up by the solar rays.
Leonardo da Vinci
of all the weapons of destruction that man could invent, the most terrible-and the most powerful-was the word. Daggers and spears left traces of blood; arrows could be seen at a distance. Poisons were detected in the end and avoided. But the word managed to destroy without leaving clues.
Paulo Coelho
In this age of communications that span both distance and time, the only tool we have that approximates a ‘whisper’ is encryption. When I cannot whisper in my wife’s ear or the ears of my business partners, and have to communicate electronically, then encryption is our tool to keep our secrets secret.
John McAfee
Love doesn’t think twice, it comes all at once, or whispers from a distance.
Celine Dion
Sometimes a bit of distance can be very healthy. You can go away by yourself on a trip and come back very glad to be with your partner because you’ve cleared your head out of all the negativity.
Jack Nicholson
Most centrist Democrats… try to distance themselves from controversies that recall the 1960s. There are journalistic centrists as well, who avoid hard truths for the sake of acceptance and legitimacy.
Tom Hayden
Carol Guess’s poems are sexy, intuitive, angry, and hopeful. These lyrical narratives measure the impossibly small distance between love and fear. They are a reminder that we’re all vulnerable little vessels filled by the people who can break us.
Zachary Schomburg
The night below. We two. Crystal of pain. You wept over great distances. My ache was a clutch of agonies over your sickly heart of sand.
Federico Garcia Lorca
Between highway sounds I heard waves and thought how the curve of the coastline here had sheltered and nurtured live-born sharks, humans, and migrating whales. Here, at the edge of the continent, time and distance stopped; in the lull between sets of waves I could get a fresh start.
Gretel Ehrlich
For the first time, he heard something that he knew to be music. He heard people singing. Behind him, across vast distances of space and time, from the place he had left, he thought he heard music too. But perhaps, it was only an echo.
Lois Lowry
Contemplate the wonders of creation, the Divine dimension of their being, not as a dim configuration that is presented to you from a distance, but as the reality in which you live.
Abraham Isaac Kook
The way to heaven out of all places is of length and distance.
Thomas More
Earth is going to lose its oceans in the future, just as Venus did in the past. How long planets retain their oceans is a function of distance from the sun, all other things being equal.
David Grinspoon
She has her own glamour, Willy lad. All poets do, all the bards and artists, all the musicians who truly take the music into their own hearts. They all straddle the border of Faerie, and they see into both worlds. Not dependably into either, perhaps, but that uncertainty keeps them honest and at a distance.
Emma Bull
The technology, called near-field communication, involves a microchip that can send and receive data across very short distances, about four inches. Instead of swiping a credit card, you hold your phone near a reader and let the data zip between the two devices.
Daniel Lyons
The voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks. See the line from a sufficient distance and it straightens itself to the average tendency.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The only thing that lives beyond the grave is the wake you have created by the way you have lived your life; the goals you have set; the distance away from the normal you dared to tread.
Gerry Lindgren
While human space travel is daunting, machines – with their indefinitely long lifetimes – could travel the galaxy. It might make little difference to them that bridging the distance from one star to the next could take hundreds of thousands of years or more.
Seth Shostak
I don’t know what’s the matter with me, why I’m so adept at distance, why I feel so remote from things, why life feels like a rumor.
David Shields
I do have some books, but in all the distance flights I’ve made I’ve never opened the books. I’ve been too busy.
Steve Fossett
All scenery in California requires distance to give it its highest charm.
Mark Twain
Somewhere we know that without silence words lose their meaning, that without listening speaking no longer heals, that without distance closeness cannot cure.
Henri Nouwen
The strongest affection and utmost zeal should, I think, promote the studies concerned with the most beautiful objects, most deserving to be known.
Nicolaus Copernicus
The Russians imitate French ways, but always at a distance of fifty years.
Stendhal
Thus, the distance between any two galaxies increases in time, creating the illusion of mechanical motion. But in reality, galaxies just sit there, contemplating the spectacle of the universe creating more and more space in between them.
Joao Magueijo
A lot of journalists like to suck up to celebrities, and then as soon as they’re a safe distance away at their computers, they take shots. But that’s the way society has become, especially in pop culture.
Scott Weiland
It’s amazing how much distance one truth can create between two people.
Colleen Hoover
To converse at the distance of the Indes by means of sympathetic contrivances may be as natural to future times as to us is a literary correspondence.
Joseph Glanvill
Slow-twitch muscle fibers are mostly used for long endurance exercises like aerobics, swimming, and distance running. Fast-twitch muscle fibers are generally more powerful and are activated during maximum exertion exercises like heavy weightlifting and intensive, short bursts of sprints.
David Kirsch
Europe must not distance itself from Africa’s universal ambitions.
Jean-Claude Juncker
Romance takes place in the middle distance. Romance is looking in at yourself through a window clouded with dew. Romance means leaving things out: where life grunts and shuffles, romance only sighs.
Margaret Atwood
Commitment. Someone who’ll go the distance. I need somebody with staying power who’ll make me go weak in the knees. Commitment. And everything that goes with it. I need honor and love in my life from somebody who’s playing for keeps.
LeAnn Rimes
“I’m going back!” I shouted, standing to put some distance between us in case I was yanking her chain too hard and she came after me. “I’ll show him,” I said, waving an arm. “I’ll sneak in. I’ll steal his freaking glasses and mail them back to him in a freaking birthday card!”
Kim Harrison
The strongest signals leaking off our planet are radar transmissions, not television or radio. The most powerful radars, such as the one mounted on the Arecibo telescope (used to study the ionosphere and map asteroids) could be detected with a similarly sized antenna at a distance of nearly 1,000 light-years.
Seth Shostak
Pies were invented 12,000 years ago by the Egyptians. It was an easy way to preserve food that would be carried over long distances. They were like ancient Slim Jims.
Craig Ferguson
Turner – whether on canvas or paper – can create almost measurable distances of space and air – air that you can draw, in which you can work out what the section through it would be. The space he creates is not emptiness; it is filled with ‘solid’ atmosphere.
Henry Moore
But what seems like a reasonable distance to one person might feel too far to somebody else.
Haruki Murakami
One kind kiss before we part,
Drop a tear and bid adieu;
Though we sever, my fond heart
Till we meet shall pant for you.
Robert Dodsley
In general people experience their present naively, as it were, without being able to form an estimate of its contents; they have first to put themselves at a distance from it – the present, that is to say, must have become the past – before it can yield points of vantage from which to judge the future.
Sigmund Freud
Everyone who’s in America spends the first few years not experiencing it. The person is frightened by the newness of the place and doesn’t see things. Her emotional universe becomes the entire universe. And then when she thinks of home, her distance in space can seem like a distance in time.
Colm Toibin
When dawn comes, that memory gradually distances…Tonight, I will bring it to sleep with me, so that will not be taken away by the waves of the night.
Ai Yazawa
As love is union, it knows no extremes of distance.
Juana InГ©s de la Cruz
I never knew a man go for an honest day’s walk for whatever distance, great or small, and not have his reward in the repossession of his soul.
G. M. Trevelyan
Long-distance runners have to be very strange people. You have to really want to do it. You don’t have to win or beat someone, you just have to get through the thing. That’s the sense of victory. The sense of self-worth.
Ted Corbitt
We have food deserts in our cities. We know that the distance you live from a supplier of fresh produce is one of the best predictors of your health. And in the inner city, people don’t have grocery stores. So we have to figure out a way of getting supermarkets and farmers markets into the inner cities.
Michael Pollan
At a distance from the theatre of action, truth is not always related without embellishment, and sometimes is entirely perverted, from a misconception of the causes which produce the effects that are the subjects of censure.
George Washington
Can you love someone you don’t trust?” “Absolutely,” he said. “I have a sister I wouldn’t lend two copper lengths if I wanted them back. The problem with loving someone you don’t trust is finding the right distance.
Daniel Abraham
The distance between Evil and Good is a vast expanse in which many can exist without being either.
Amish Tripathi
In the space between our bodies there is a cup holder filled with pennies a distance which can often take years to cross.
Mira Gonzalez
Editors and their authors seldom form deep friendships for the same reason that psychiatrists and their patients keep their distance: The relationship requires candor that mixes poorly with intimacy.
Jason Epstein
Twenty years is, after all, a long time. We are not the same people we were. Old friends, lovers, even family members: they are strangers who happen to wear a familiar face. We have no right to claim to know anyone after such a distance.
Graham Joyce
You do realize that the cost of that bracelet is within spitting distance of my going rate as an assassin, right?” “You mean your going rate back when you were actually killing people for money,” Finn said. “Or as I like to call them— the good ole days.
Jennifer Estep
Research into manned spaceflight is shifting from low-Earth orbit to destinations much further away, like Mars and the asteroid belt. But society will have to invent many new technologies before it can plausibly send people to those distances.
Andy Weir
I suggested that we might compare earthquakes in terms of the measured amplitudes recorded at these stations, with an appropriate correction for distance.
Charles Francis Richter
Tuna pie has been a comfort food for me. Back in high school, when I was still studying at ABS-CBN’s Distance Learning Center, I remember buying it every day from the Jollibee kiosk in our building.
Pia Wurtzbach
I’m used to short distances and short bursts of energy; it was just fastest
Shannon Miller
Not that running away’s going to solve everything. I don’t want to rain on your parade or anything, but I wouldn’t count on escaping this place if I were you. No matter how far you run. Distance might not solve anything.
Haruki Murakami
The land of literature is a fairy land to those who view it at a distance, but, like all other landscapes, the charm fades on a nearer approach, and the thorns and briars become visible.
Washington Irving
Then something occurred to me. “Get closer,” I told Blackjack. He whinnied in protest. “Just within shouting distance,” I said. “I need to talk to the statue.” Now I’m sure you’ve lost it, boss, Blackjack said
Rick Riordan
The law of dislike for the unlike will always prevail. And whereas the unlike is normally situated at a safe distance, the Jews bring the unlike into the heart of every milieu, and must there defend a frontier line as large as the world.
Israel Zangwill
I’d entirely forgotten about Pass The Distance, and then I went to Japan in 2000, and was asked to do interviews with all these journalists, who were showing up with bootlegs of this record, asking me to talk about it. I was astonished. It kind of gained momentum.
David Toop
In truth, I am nothing but a plodding mediocrity — please observe, a plodding mediocrity — for a mere mediocrity does not go very far, but a plodding one gets quite a distance. There is joy in that success, and a distinction can come from courage, fidelity and industry.
Benjamin Cardozo
The two-piece ball I switched to spun too much. One shot would go the distance I thought it should, then the next one would fall short, and then the next one would go long.
Payne Stewart
The dark shadow we seem to see in the distance is not really a mountain ahead, but the shadow of the mountain behind – a shadow from the past thrown forward into our future. It is a dark sludge of historical sectarianism. We can leave it behind us if we wish.
David Trimble
Difficult is a far cry from impossible. The distance between these two lies hope.В  Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay.
Maya Angelou
Every man, in judging of himself, is his own contemporary. He may feel the gale of popularity, but he cannot tell how long it will last. His opinion of himself wants distance, wants time, wants numbers, to set it off and confirm it.
William Hazlitt
The difference between charity and philanthropy is the distance of the soul… To be philanthropic is to give something, to be charitable is to give one’s own heart.
Maya Angelou
Distance is a great promoter of admiration.
Denis Diderot
I wear a pedometer, a little device that counts every step. It works as a goad, because you walk additional distances to pile up the numbers. The average person walks 2,000 to 3,000 steps a day. I walk 10,000 steps a day. I have lost a lot of weight as a result.
Roger Ebert
The civilizing process has increased the distance between behavior and the impulse life of the animal body.
Shoshana Zuboff
My first years on tour, I tried to be super professional by considering the yardages to every feature and hazard. Over time my caddie and I noticed I play better when we keep it simple. Think about the distance you want the ball to fly, and only that number.
Rickie Fowler
Even though I’ve been an avid consumer of contemporary music since my early teens, the world of rock music has always been at something of a distance – I listen to it, read about it, I talk about it, but I’ve had little or no contact with its denizens.
William Boyd
I’ve thrown or broken a few clubs in my day. In fact, I guess at one time or another I probably held distance records for every club in the bag.
Tommy Bolt
I have to listen to my body – and it’s telling me not to run long distances. So how do you train for a race when you know you won’t have the same result as before? And should you even join if you know you can’t run the whole race? Absolutely – just run-walk it.
Ginger Zee
Of course, long-distance running has to do with the fact that we’re hunters.
Freeman Dyson
If you want to know how much darkness there is around you, you must sharpen your eyes, peering at the faint lights in the distance.
Italo Calvino
Come here. I need to hold on to you.” She felt the same way. And when there was no distance between them, it was like coming home.
J.R. Ward
Because no other could do it, he himself went to the greatest possible distance, the infinite distance. This infinite distance between God and God, this supreme tearing apart, this incomparable agony, this marvel of love, is the crucifixion. Nothing can be further from God than that which has been made accursed.
Simone Weil
There are people who observe the rules of honor as one observes the stars, from a great distance.
Victor Hugo
Everybody in life is struggling for power, and some people use morality and righteousness as a weapon, while others use different means, even passive aggression. From a distance, we are all fighting, and I am looking at this from a distance.
Robert Greene
Love makes us similar, it creates equality, it breaks down walls and eliminates distances. God did this with us.
Pope Francis
Actually, the curious thing is that the more you become a subject of admiration or loathing, the more you’re examined under a microscope, the distance seems to open up between who you really are and the portrayals that people impose on you.
Nick Clegg
This is a regional fair that attracts people from the surrounding counties and from further distances. The fair draws people from as far away as Albert Lea, Owatonna and the Twin Cities.
Eddie Murphy
But Ash, I can’t continue to want you from a distance. To love you and not have you. I’d end up in jail if anyone tried to touch you and God forbid you tried to date someone.
Abbi Glines
I’ve learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Unknown
I can see lights in the distance trembling in the dark cloak of night Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing a waltz on All Souls Night.
Loreena McKennitt
Invoking Nature always measures the distance we have yet to travel to achieve real progress on environmental issues.
Timothy Morton
The decision to join Stripe and run ‘Increment’ was a pretty easy one for me: It was an opportunity to be impactful, to collect and share best practices from the most effective engineering teams in the world. ‘Increment’ is a step toward flattening the distance between the Silicon Valley elite and developers everywhere.
Susan Fowler
Affectation naturally counterfeits those excellences which are placed at the greatest distance from possibility of attainment, because, knowing our own defects, we eagerly endeavor to supply them with artificial excellence.
Samuel Johnson
When I say the grace of wildness, what I mean is its autonomy, its self-possession, the fact that it has nothing to do with us. The grace is in the separation, the distance, the sense of a self-sustaining way of life.
Verlyn Klinkenborg
The world tends to trap you in the role you play and it is always extremely hard to maintain a watchful, mocking distance between oneself as one appears to be and oneself as one actually is.
James A. Baldwin
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.
Henry David Thoreau
When the dog is repeatedly teased with the sight of objects inducing salivary secretion from a distance, the reaction of the salivary glands grows weaker and weaker and finally drops to zero.
Ivan Pavlov
I grew up acutely aware of the exile and distance caused by war.
Hiam Abbass
True friends are like bright sunflowers that never fade away, even over distance and time
Unknown
No dignity without distance.
Mason Cooley
Respect the gods and the devils but keep them at a distance
Confucius
Long distance is the next best thing to being there. But a dove in love would rather reach out and touch someone. Spring is in the air and all lines are busy with local calls as the wooing and cooing commences.
Charley Harper
It took me a long time to realize that distance can ruin even the best of intentions.
Nicholas Sparks
Tis distance lends enchantment to the view, and robes the mountain in its azure hue.
Thomas Campbell
If you have distance from the events, then your story can work as an analogy or parable rather than its literal narrative.
Peter Morgan
No terrain is too bleak, no distance too far that it will stop God from rescuing His own.
Lynn Austin
Distance yourself from negative people who try to lower your motivation and decrease your ambition. Create space for positive people to come into your life. Surround yourself with positive people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.
Roy T. Bennett
Pop and metal aren’t friends. Each knows exactly where the other lives and tries to keep its distance. They choose different streets, neighborhoods, zip codes.
Dave Mustaine
Distance cannot matter – ours is a friendship of the heart.
Mary Anne Radmacher
I used to date Kellan Lutz. We were together for two and a half years, but the distance and travel really kept us apart. In the end, we decided it wouldn’t work, but we’re still good friends.
Kayla Ewell
I want to run a marathon in the immediate future. In the future future, I want to do ironmans. I cycle long distances. The only thing I have to work on is the swimming. I’m a good swimmer, but I’ve never done long distances like that.
Ray Allen
I lived within walking distance of Harvard Square, and that’s where I discovered my love of cinema. I saw a lot of foreign and independent films there.
Rachel Morrison
I am lost if I attempt to take count of chronology. When I think over the past, I am like a person whose eyes cannot properly measure distances and is liable to think things extremely remote which on examination prove to be quite near.
Andre Gide
I just want the pleasure of noticing these things at a safe distance.
John Green
I had to travel long distances to train on a synthetic track, which added to residual fatigue.
P. T. Usha
The height of the pulleys from the ground was twelve yards, and consequently, when the weights had descended through that distance, they had to be wound up again in order to renew the motion of the paddle.
James Prescott Joule
I usually kept everybody at arm’s distance.
Charles Haley
Skeptical doesn’t have to necessarily be a negative thing. I think if you allow yourself to second guess things and look at things from a distance you don’t immediately run into things blindfolded, so that’s a positive.
Aleister Black
The twin guardian angels whose eyes and hands and wings had focused protective attention on the souls that lay there no longer faced each other. They stared blindly into a random middle distance. The scroll they held between them proclaiming eternal resurrection was broken in two.
Claire Morgan
But Hopes are Shy Birds flying at a great distance seldom reached by the best of Guns.
John James Audubon
I’ve never found that getting physical is ever the best response in a bar. You just have to make sure you keep your distance, and if it gets to a point where it gets aggressive then the best thing to do is go get a bouncer and get the situation resolved intelligently.
Chuck Liddell
Only one in five children in the U.S. lives within walking distance of a park. Many more lack access to a quality early childhood education that provides ample time and space to play.
Darell Hammond
It’s very hard from a distance to figure out who has lost their minds. One party, the other party, all of us, the president.
Claire McCaskill
If you’re trying to cut down the distance travelled from the farm to your plate, it makes sense to do the same for your pet. If we all shifted our bias towards sustainable pet food, we would be helping more than just our faithful friends.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
A player’s ability to rebound is inversely proportional to the distance between where he was born and the nearest railroad tracks. The greater distance you live from the poor side of the railroad tracks, the less likely that you will be a good rebounder.
Pete Carril
Universities won’t survive. The future is outside the traditional campus, outside the traditional classroom. Distance learning is coming on fast.
Peter Drucker
Science no longer is in the position of observer of nature, but rather recognizes itself as part of the interplay between man and nature. The scientific method … changes and transforms its object: the procedure can no longer keep its distance from the object.
Werner Heisenberg
The minimum necessary structuring ingredient of every ideology is to distance itself from another ideology, to denounce its other as ideology.
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
If you perform on a stage or you sing a song, it’s like you sing your song, and then the words go into the air, and then they go into somebody’s body through their ears, so it’s kind of like penetrating somebody. It’s kind of like having sex with somebody – but, obviously, from a great distance.
Jarvis Cocker
Much of romantic relationships today have to do when the people are not in the same room. Whether it’s texting or emailing or Facebooking, there’s a kind of distance between the participants.
Ivan Reitman
A mountain seen in the haze of distance must nevertheless look a solid heavy mountain.
Robert Henri
Reflecting on the past, where the film industry became united with ‘national interest’ and ‘national policy,’ I tend to think that keeping a clear distance from government authority is the right thing to do.
Hirokazu Kore-eda
To edit someone from your life must be a properly evaluated decision. After all, the act of distancing yourself is difficult and, if executed improperly, could prove even more troublesome than if you were to have done nothing at all. The key is to create the distance gradually – a ‘fade out’ as I like to call it.
Dan Levy
Laughter is the closest distance between two people.
Victor Borge
Were this world an endless pain, and by sailing eastward we could forever reach new distances, and discover sights more sweet and strange than any Cyclades or Islands of King Solomon, then there were promise in the voyage.
Herman Melville
People who live at a distance are naturally less faulty than those immediately under our own eyes.
George Eliot
When someone writes a book review, they obviously already self-identify as a writer. I mean, they are. They’re writers, they’re critics, and they’re writing about a book about a writer who’s a critic. So I think it’s really hard for people to distance themselves from what they’re criticizing.
Chuck Klosterman
For the cause that lacks assistance, The wrong that needs resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that I can do.
George Linnaeus Banks
Distance sometimes endears friendship, and absence sweeteneth it.
James Howell
At the same time, you have to find the right distance between people. Too close, and they overwhelm you, too far and they abandon you. How to hold them in the right relation?
Hanif Kureishi
I am too far away from what I love and my distance is without remedy.
Albert Camus
Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.
Rudyard Kipling
In philosophy, as in politics, the longest distance between two points is a straight line.
Will Durant
The vast army of McClellan spread out before me. The marching columns extended back as far as eye could see in the distance. It was a grand and glorious spectacle, and it was impossible to look at it without admiration.
Daniel Harvey Hill
To me, the concept of distance is not important. Distance doesn’t exist, in fact, and neither does time. Vibrations from love or music can be felt everywhere, at all times.
Yoko Ono
Already, viral contamination offers an initial response to the question of the downside of electronic circuits, but another area of research beckons the area of ecological pollution. The pollution not only of air, water, and other substances, but also the unperceived pollution of distances.
Paul Virilio
Iain didn’t go back to sleep for a long while. He continued to think about all the logical reasons he would never allow himself to be turned into a lovesick weakling like Patrick, and when he finally fell asleep, he had convinced himself that he would distance his heart from his mind. He dreamed about her.
Julie Garwood
The natural formation of the country is the soldier’s best ally; but a power of estimating the adversary, of controlling the forces of victory, and of shrewdly calculating difficulties, dangers and distances, constitutes the test of a great general.
Sun Tzu
When you watch some old sitcoms, however charming they are, they have often lost speed over the years. The speed of ‘Fawlty Towers’ has lasted the distance.
Prunella Scales
Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.
Isaac Newton
You could hear the wind in the leaves, and on that wind traveled the screams of the kids on the playground in the distance, little kids figuring out how to be alive, how to navigate a world that wasn’t made for them by navigating a playground that was.
John Green
This weakening is worsened by the widening distance between the governed and their governments.
Jacques Delors
I fell in love with her when we were together, then fell deeper in love with her in the years we were apart.
Nicholas Sparks
Marco moves to close the distance between them, kissing away her tears before catching her lip with his own. As he kisses her, the bonfire glows brighter. The acrobats catch the light perfectly as they spin. The entire circus sparkles, dazzling every patron.
Erin Morgenstern
I got a brother who calls me Hollywood. Sisters kind of keep their distance. Even my mom is kind of like ahhh with me. Yeah dude, it really sucks. And I wish things were different. Unfortunately, they don’t understand everything I go through on a day to day basis to be able to maintain what I’m doing.
Gabriel Iglesias
Haven’t you ever known someone rejected by a lover, who, consumed by rage and jealousy, never lets go? They look on from a distance, unseen but boiling inside. The emotion never seems to tire, this hatred mixed with intense obsession, even with a kind of twisted love.
Scott Westerfeld
From a distance it is something; and nearby it is nothing.
Jean de La Fontaine
What we call people so often distances us from them, and makes them little.
Jacqueline Novogratz
It takes discipline and compassion to awaken the divine in ourselves long enough to recognize the divine in another.
Mary Anne Radmacher
If I go away What would still remain of me? The ghost within your eyes? The whisper in your sighs? You see…Believe And I’m always there.
Jon Oliva
If your eyes are far apart, bringing the brow shape closer together gives the illusion of shorter distance between the eyes.
Anastasia Soare
Our daily existence requires both closeness and distance, the wholeness of self, the wholeness of intimacy.
Judith Viorst
What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I am ashamed of you. They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance.
John Sedgwick
The mountain at a given distance In amber lies; Approached, the amber flits a little,– And that’s the skies!
Emily Dickinson
All religions will pass but this will remain: simply sitting in a chair and looking into the distance.
Vasily Rozanov
If you are situated at a great distance from the enemy, and the strength of the two armies is equal, it is not easy to provoke a battle, and fighting will be to your disadvantage.
Sun Tzu
