Greatness, once fallen out with fortune, must fall out with men too.

Ralph Raico
Realism hasn’t fallen out of favor with most people, who are interested in people’s lives rather than gymnastics of style or literary trends. It’s a certain kind of academic who undervalues realism, largely because it is not amenable to endless exegesis.

The snakeskin-titles of mining-claims,
The plumed war-bonnet of Medicine Hat,
Tucson and Deadwood and Lost Mule Flat.
Stephen Vincent Benet

Joanna Garcia

Smell is a fallen angel.
Helen Keller
I forever felt that I’ve fallen right between the crack of way too young for the first generation of classic rock ‘n’ roll and too old to be brand-new. It’s hard.

Blaise Pascal
As a country that does not belong to any power bloc, India cannot afford to put itself in the position of needing multilateral support – a trap into which even developed countries, like Portugal and Spain, have fallen.
Raghuram Rajan
In the richest country in the history of the world, this Obama economy has crushed the middle class. Family income has fallen by $4,000, but health insurance premiums are higher, food prices are higher, utility bills are higher, and gasoline prices have doubled. Today more Americans wake up in poverty than ever before.
Mitt Romney
Yes, she doesn’t really look like either of us, does she? Perhaps she’s a girl who’s fallen madly in love with me and persists in following me wherever I go.” “My talent is shape-shifting, Will, not acting,” said Tessa, and at that Jem laughed out loud.

So the books for the Englishman, as he listened intently or not, had gaps of plot like sections of a road washed out by storms, missing incidents as if locusts had consumed a section of tapestry, as if plaster loosened by the bombing had fallen away from a mural at night.
Michael Ondaatje
I praise CBS for taking a risk, which is always the price you pay for opportunity. This is not standard movie of the week storytelling. I think movies of the week have fallen into a niche and that isn’t my niche.
Tom Selleck
Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?’ Jace said, “Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself.” …”At least,” she said, “you don’t have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland.” “Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.

Michael N. Castle
The cynics, they can only speak of the dark, of the obvious, and this is not hard. For all it’s supposed sophistication, it’s cynicism that’s simplistic. In a fallen world, how profound is
to see the cracks?

Cassandra Clare
I have many, many editions of the books, and they are all rather different. In the end, the one I used was the most recent French translation. French suits the tales well, and it’s a beautiful translation. The Italian one is good as well… English has fallen short.

Words scatter
Are they fallen leaves?
Ruth Ozeki
The angles of my body show you an awful lot. I started doing coke to feel open, but by that time, the hole had opened so wide that I’d fallen through. The body language in those photos tells you everything.
George Carlin
I think I infuse the music with a new passion. Part of this is because I have fallen in love: I am in love with the New York Philharmonic. The chemistry has just been right. Beyond expectation.
Lorin Maazel
Is it my fault if I do not look like an English girl and I do not talk like a Nigerian? Well, who says an English girl must have skin as pale as the clouds that float across her summers? Who says a Nigerian girl must speak in fallen English…?
Chris Cleave
Everybody has fallen down or been disappointed in love. Where you truly shine is when you get back up. Use it as a learning experience and believe in all of the possibilities.
Sherry Argov
I’ve never fallen in love right off the bat. I get scared to say I love you too soon because it means so much. It means you’re not seeing an end to things.
Leighton Meester
Let us see whether it is the New Order or me who will be the loser before Indonesian history. I have won. The New Order has fallen and my writings have been translated into 40 languages.

Beatrice Sparks

The true, the wise, the beautiful, is sleeping in the dust.
George Stillman Hillard
In terms of sexual orientation I don’t really feel I’ve changed … I’d been with men all my life, and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.
Cynthia Nixon

Lucy Maud Montgomery
I’d fallen asleep thinking I was much too tired to go on working and if I went on working, I’d lose it. I’d get a better hold of it in the morning; feel stronger. But I looked and looked at it and it seemed to me there was nothing to do.
Milton Resnick
When I started out, there were many different companies… you could leave and go to a different territory, and there were so many different styles. What we have now is WWE has survived the test of time, and all the other companies have fallen off the face of the earth.

One of the greatest foes of the Christian is religious complacency.. Orthodox Christianity has fallen to its present low estate from lack of spiritual desire. Among the many who profess the Christian faith, scarcely one in a thousand reveals any passionate thirst for God.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The Europeans have fallen away from religion and the church while the rest of the world is seemingly more religious. I don’t know how to explain it.
Sally Quinn

Cassandra Clare
Do you want to go back to Vienna?” he said. Alec didn’t answer, just stared into space. “Or we could go somewhere else,” said Magnus. “Anywhere you want. Thailand, South Carolina, Brazil, Peru – Oh, wait, no, I’m banned from Peru. I’d forgotten about that. It’s a long story, but amusing if you want to hear it.
Cassandra Clare
But you can’t kill humans It’s– Evil? The world is evil Risika. Wolves hunt the stragglers in a group of deer. Vultures devour the fallen.Hyenas destroy the weak. Humans kill that which they fear. Survive and be strong, or die, cornered by your prey, trembling because the night is dark.
Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
A sensation must have fallen very low to deign to turn into an idea.
Emile M. Cioran

Ray LaHood
Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. Some of us have ventured out nevertheless, and so far we have not fallen off. It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.
Andrea Dworkin
I tell people that anything that could ever happen to you on stage has happened to me. My clothes have fallen off. I’ve fallen off the stage. I’ve gotten sick – anything.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Once you’ve fallen in love, it’s turned around your whole life. You keep thinking about this girl all the time instead of thinking about other things. Since the object of love is that particular person, being separated brings about a longing and pain.
Seyyed Hossein Nasr
The election of Donald Trump is, to me, this very clownish personality with no political experience, who had literally been using fascist slogans in his campaign. It had seemed so impossible. Even after he was elected, and even now, it still feels impossible. It felt like we had fallen into this wormhole of history.
Ben H. Winters
Many have died; you also will die. The drum of death is being beaten. The world has fallen in love with a dream. Only sayings of the wise will remain.

Walter Lippmann
The U.S. has fallen behind with tax policies that haven’t been updated in a half-century.
Rob Portman
Rap and spoken word have reawakened the country to poetry in itself. Texting and Twitter encourage creative uses of casual language, in ways I have celebrated widely. But we’ve fallen behind on savoring the formal layer of our language.
John McWhorter
Darkness had fallen upon everything for him; but just because of this darkness he felt that the one guiding clue in the darkness was his work, and he clutched it and clung to it with all his strength.

Richard Phillips
I love technology – yes, I have fallen in love with older cars, but I’m all for new technology.

Ann Patchett
Every new stroke of civilization has cost the lives of countless brave men, who have fallen defeated by the dragon, in their efforts to win the apples of the Hesperides, or the fleece of gold.

D. H. Lawrence
I’ve fallen in love with Los Angeles, and I love to explore it myself.

Fulton J. Sheen

Margaret Mitchell
You can definitely tell the record was made for the time that it was and on the budget that it was. ‘Waking the Fallen,’ I mean. We think that it is cool. It serves its purpose. It serves its time. We don’t want to remaster it or anything like that.
Johnny Christ
Trouble is, I don’t get to play a lot at the moment because I’ve just signed a contract where I’ve got to do 200 shows a year in pubs, so the golf’s fallen away a bit.

Are ye the ghosts of fallen leaves,
O flakes of snow,
For which, through naked trees, the winds
A-mourning go?
John B. Tabb
Arab civilizations had been of an abstract nature, moral and intellectual rather than applied; and their lack of public spirit made their excellent private qualities futile. They were fortunate in their epoch: Europe had fallen barbarous; and the memory of Greek and Latin learning was fading from men’s minds.
T. E. Lawrence
Pressed against her I can hear eternity — hollow, lonely spaces and currents that churn ceaselessly, and the fallen snow welcomes the falling snow with a whispered “Hush”.
Craig Thompson
Penguin is this interesting figure within the city of Gotham. He’s this guy who has worked in the shadows and publicly. He’s skirted the line between lawful and completely chaotic or villainous. He’s risen and fallen multiple times in the ways that pretty much no other character can dream of.
Cameron Monaghan
An eldery fallen angel travelling incognito.
Peter Quennell
Still, despite all our noise, this universe hinges on a melody, that’s the dismal truth of it. Oh, we can propagandize all we wish, it doesn’t change the fabric of things. This universe was not made for the fallen, only the redeemed.
Geoffrey Wood
It’s okay, girl, we’ll make it till the sun goes down forever. And until then what you got to lose but the losing? We’re fallen angels who didn’t believe that nothing means nothing.
Jack Kerouac

I tell girls all the time that the men that have fallen in love with me, have all fallen during a man repeller stage funny how life works out like that.

Her eyes take on that suspicious, wounded look girls get when they know they’ve fallen off the top rung of friendship and someone else has passed them, but they don’t know when or how the change took place.
Libba Bray

Howard Jacobson
Every accusation against a fallen man gains credence.
Publilius Syrus
Our neighbors who have fallen on hard times can use basic sanitary items, such as soap, socks and undergarments; when we go shopping for ourselves, how about adding an extra item for someone in need?
