I’m a Buckeye at heart. I spend more time giving concerts in Ohio than I do in any other state – perhaps more time than I spend performing anywhere else in the world. I have a great relationship with the people of Ohio, and it’s great to be near the OSU when I come to Columbus.

We’re not in cultures which support learning; we’re in cultures that give us the message consistently: “Don’t mess up, don’t make mistakes, don’t make the boss look bad, don’t give us any surprises.” So we’re asking for a kind of predictability, control, respect, and compliance that has nothing to do with learning.

It seems so long ago that he was last afraid of anything. Seventeen, was he then? Eighteen? Sometimes he thinks he’s missing a lot by being like this – fear gives life a fillip. He wonders how it is he lost it all, and what there is – if anything – ever to bring it back.

Rather than becoming obsessed with the evil around you, ask God to give you a fresh perspective to see how He can bring good out of it. Look for the hand of God in your difficult situations.

For me, there’s a lot of intrinsic mystery and power in folk music, but a lot of people don’t perceive that music from around the world as something that fits into their lives or their psyche in any way. So I tried to present it in a different way to give it more of a chance to sink into people’s heads.
Jeff Mangum
When you don’t give money, it shows that you have the devil’s nature.
Benny Hinn
I get to do a lot of things I don’t usually get to do with the boys. I love playing guitar and rocking out on stage, so I do a ton of that with my solo project. [Backstreet Boys] all give each other the freedom to do our own thing, which just makes the bond the five of us have stronger

It doesn’t matter if it’s in my class or around the world, anywhere, the first thing I say is “First of all guys, I want to give my Heavenly Father credit for all I do and the Lord Jesus Christ to give me the opportunity to go out and reach and save lives.” To me, that’s the most important thing.

William Kent Krueger

John Steinbeck
How much liberty do with want to give up for a false sense of security?

Cecily von Ziegesar
Running gives me a clearer perspective on the world, and it makes me feel special. I’ve never been a traditional tourist.

Grete Waitz
My God, give me neither poverty nor riches; but whatsoever it may be Thy will to give, give me with it a heart which knows humbly to acquiesce in what is Thy will.

I give boring people something to discuss over corn.
Aimee Bender
If you give up on politics, you’re giving up on democracy. And if you give up on democracy, you’re basically saying to the moneyed interests, the powerful people and institutions of society, take it all. That’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Then we give up. Then we are 100 percent plutocracy.

Everything starts from prayer. Without asking God for love, we cannot possess love and still less are we able to give it to others.

Mother Teresa
We call heaven our home, as the best name we know to give it.

Daniel Pinchbeck
Leadership is the art of giving people a platform for spreading ideas that work.

happy people have got something to give to the world.
Patricia Wentworth
It’s not what your parents give you. It’s what you do with your own stuff.
Jennifer Grant
The tragedy of journalism lies in its impermanence; the very topicality which gives it brilliance condemns it to an early death. Too often it is a process of flinging bright balloons in the path of the hurricane, a casting of priceless petals upon the rushing surface of a stream.
Vera Brittain
Some of the analysts were saying, Now you’re a cash cow, there’s no growth at all, pay it all out in dividends, give me it all, you can’t invest wisely.
Jim Cantalupo
Studing jewelry gives you an incredible technical background. If you can work on very, very small things, then, I think, typically you find it easier to go bigger rather than the other way around. I think a lot of architects have struggled with small things. Whereas if you start small, it’s easier to get bigger.
Marc Newson

Stephen King
We talk a lot on ‘Biggest Loser’ about how fitness is a natural antidepressant, how it burns off stress. What I like about running is that it gives me time alone. I’m always busy, with people at work, with my kids. I love getting out for a run by myself and just listening to my music.
Alison Sweeney

And if there is anybody out there who is crazy enough to want to become a writer, I’d say go ahead, spit in the eye of the sun, hit those keys, it’s the best madness going, the centuries need help, the species cry for light and gamble and laughter. Give it to them. There are enough words for all of us.
Charles Bukowski
I hate the idea that, when it comes to books and learning, hard is often seen as the opposite of fun. It’s strange to me that we should be so quick to give up on a book or a math problem when we are so willing to grapple, for centuries if necessary, with a single level of Angry Birds.
John Green
I think desire gives us – imagination – as well as actually often we pay a terrible price for it. Women are punished around their sexuality and perceived to be immoral if they practice a certain kind of promiscuous sexuality. It’s a very different thing still if you’re a guy, if you’re a woman and you’re straight.
Amber Hollibaugh
Xenial’ is a word which refers to the giving of gifts to strangers. . . . I know that having a good vocabulary doesn’t guarantee that I’m a good person. . . . But it does mean I’ve read a great deal. And in my experience, well-read people are less likely to be evil.
Daniel Handler
True beauty is a ray That springs from the sacred depths of the soul, and illuminates the body, just as life springs from the kernel of a stone and gives colour and scent to a flower.
Know what it is the emotional statement to convey, and use taste and judgement to help the actors give their best possible performance.
Stanley Kubrick
I always loved English because whatever human beings are, we are storytellers. It is our stories that give a light to the future. When I went to college I became a history major because history is such a wonderful story of who we think we are. English is much more a story of who we really are.
Nikki Giovanni
They [British people] told us to restore democratic control of immigration policy and to spend their money on national priorities such as health, education and science instead of giving it to Brussels.

Nigel Farage
I believe in taking care of myself and teaching other people who want to learn. I don’t believe in just printing money and giving money. I’m willing to teach those who are willing to learn. If you’re not willing to learn, then go vote for Obama. I’m not Republican or Democrat, so don’t get me wrong.
Robert Kiyosaki
Sigmund Freud already discovered that suffering gives us pleasure – in a strange masochistic way. The tyranny of choice exploits that weakness. Consumer culture exhausts us. We suffer. We destroy ourselves. And we just can’t stop.
Renata Salecl
In East Germany it was very normal for a woman to go out and work even if she had children. A few weeks after giving birth women would return to their normal working life. We never had housewives in East Germany.
Christian Schwochow
In a two-hour interview last Friday, Bruce Jenner told ABC’s Diane Sawyer, ‘For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.’ At which point, Joe Biden ran in and started giving Bruce a shoulder rub.
Jimmy Fallon
Publishers give you deadlines for those last phases of production that are perfectly comfortable for them. So, to whatever extent I can, I like to push those to give me a little more time, and make it so that they’re as uncomfortable as I am.
Charles Frazier
It is hard to know when we have done enough for the Atonement to change our natures and so qualify us for eternal life. And we don’t know how many days we will have to give the service necessary for that mighty change to come. But we know that we will have days enough if only we don’t waste them.
Henry B. Eyring
You’ve got to give people a fair chance of saying what they believe, and then you’ve got to decide, “Do you believe ’em?”

Daniel Ellsberg
Sometimes I’ll fall off the wagon, but you learn that there’s a time and a place. I’m young and I wanna have fun and go crazy, but then you go home and you’re a mom and you have to give all that time to your family. It’s just finding out when to do what and where.
You can’t give up until the finish line, that’s something I’ve learned.
Gwen Jorgensen
It’s not what we eat but what we digest that makes us strong; not what we gain but what we save that makes us rich; not what we read but what we remember that makes us learned; and not what we profess but what we practice that gives us integrity.
Francis Bacon
History is almost always written by the victors and conquerors and gives their view. Or, at any rate, the victors’ version is given prominence and holds the field.
Jawaharlal Nehru
God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed.
Reinhold Niebuhr
The more you do for others without expectation of return, the more you’ll get back from the most unexpected sources.
Brian Tracy
Do not dash if you only have the strength to walk, and do not waste your time pushing on the walls that will not give. More importantly, don’t shove where a pat would be sufficient.
Brandon Sanderson
God never witholds from His child that which His love and wisdom call good. God’s refusals are always merciful — “severe mercies” at times but mercies all the same. God never denies us our hearts desire except to give us something better.
Elisabeth Elliot
Some men are tempted to violate secrecy from the uneasiness secrecy gives them, and others, merely to impress you with the extent of their confidence.
Norm MacDonald
Fear of what other people will think is the single most paralyzing dynamic in business and in life. The best moment of my lifewas the day I realized that I know longer give a damn what anybody thinks. That’s enormously liberating and freeing, and it’s the only way to live your life and do your business.
Cindy Gallop
Give us an intense distaste for things that displease You and a renewed pleasure in things that bring You honor and magnify Your truth.
Charles R. Swindoll
I recommend a balance between the therapies that are available, the medicines that are available but not to give up on the body as a result.
Linda Hamilton
It would be a great advantage to some schoolmasters if they would steal two hours a day from their pupils and give their own minds the benefit of the robbery.
John Frederick Boyes
The relinquishing of the lesser is the gaining of the greater. Give up all and you gain all.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The most complex challenge for an actor is the ability to give dimension to the story from the time that it happened, not from the present.
Benjamin Avila
You are very kind in planning presents for me to make, and my mother has shown me exactly the same attention; but as I do not choose to have generosity dictated to me, I shall not resolve on giving my cabinet to Anna till the first thought of it has been my own.
Jane Austen
If they give you ruled paper, write the other way.
Juan Ramon Jimenez
There is a new bill in the Senate that is upsetting a lot of people. This bill would give the President the power to shut off the Internet. Al Gore is strongly opposed to it. Not because he invented the Internet. Because he did. But because he just signed up for
Craig Ferguson
When you feel far from God and far from everything that you wanted to be for Him, realize that you still have your whole future to give Him.
Jason Evert
The more men you make free, the more freedom is strengthened, and the more men you give an interest in the welfare and safety of the State, the greater is the security of the State.
Frederick Douglass
Sustainable development is not an option! It is the only path that allows all of humanity to share a decent life on this, one planet. Rio+20 gives our generation the opportunity to choose this path.
Sha Zukang
If you can write (and don’t kid yourself that you can, if you can’t) and you have ideas that are commercially viable and will engage the reader’s interest, go for it. Make sure you have something unique to offer. I enjoy the work of writers who give you something you won’t find anywhere else.
Joel McIver
A healthy society is life-affirming. Homosexuality is the metaphysical negation of life. Incapable of reproduction (giving life), it can replenish its numbers only by seduction.
Don Feder
My mission is to communicate, to wake people up, to give them my energy and accept theirs. We’re all in it together, and I respond emotionally as a worker, a mother, an artist, and a human being with a voice. We all have a voice. We have the responsibility to exercise it, to use it.
Patti Smith
Many readers judge of the power of a book by the shock it gives their feelings.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We talk about, you know, diet and that we shouldn’t give our kids big things and obesity and fast food. Well, you know there are people who don’t have that problem because they’re not getting any food! We have so many deep problems and issues facing humanity.
Chris Noth
Not to give too big of a spoiler, but I never find myself thinking, for example, Oh, remember that crazy time I stumbled on that closeted Republican candidate’s sex tape?
Kathleen Rooney
The more people they can give us upfront the harder we play.
Bon Scott
Egil Olsen should have gone six games ago. He was totally useless. I’d like to give him a right-hander!
Vinnie Jones
… organized religion, in a dominating business society, can do only one of two things. It can either assure the communicant with uneasy bluster that God Himself likes money — a theory which convinces nobody — or it can give him an apologetic, halfhearted invitation to go out and get himself crucified.
Margaret Halsey
I’ve lost her. Can you give me any guidance?” – Sundown “On what? A new personality? Car buying? I’m a Wolf, cowboy, not a life counselor.” – Sasha
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Something is swelling up among our athletes. Many of them are frustrated, everywhere in the world, and they are looking for a way out. Either they start doping themselves, or they give up the sport. Or else they stand up and demand that those who have the power to should change the system.
Travis Tygart
Let’s acknowledge that America’s increasing decadence is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. When we tolerate trash on television, permit pornography to invade our homes via the Internet, and allow babies to be killed at the point of birth, we are inflaming radical Islam.
Charles Colson
Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself and all it contains, rather than do an immoral act.
Thomas Jefferson
Young guys should focus on maintaining their football position. Coaches always say the lowest guy wins. I’m a taller guy and a bigger guy, but because I’m always in a great football position is why I think I’m able to get away from guys still. It gives me a chance to recover.
Brandon Spikes
Writing isn’t about the destination-writing is the journey that transforms the soul and gives meaning to all else.
Sue Grafton
To concede that there are social problems that cannot be corrected without the state is to give up the entire argument over the future of liberty itself.
Llewellyn Rockwell
If you’re going to play strength, you’ve got to marry that with a vulnerability and give your character some relatable qualities.
Katee Sackhoff
I love him whose soul is lavish, who wanteth no thanks and doth not give back: for he always bestoweth, and desireth not to keep for himself.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Human thought by its nature is capable of giving, and does give, absolute truth, which is compounded of a sum-total of relative truths.
Vladimir Lenin
The reason why I’m here today is to explain why I am running and what I will do if you give me the honor and the privilege of representing you in the United States Senate. Now I’m running for the United State Senate for a simple reason, and that is…I want to win a Nobel Peace prize.
Marco Rubio
I have the same attitude with work – I like to go to work, I like to work really hard I, like to give everything my all, I like to try things that are new, you know.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.
Matter can never give you joy. It’s the Spirit that gives you joy.
Nirmala Srivastava
Never be diplomatic and careful about the treasure God gives. This is poverty triumphant.
Oswald Chambers
We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
Max De Pree
Give me good digestion, Lord, And also something to digest; but where and how that something comes I leave to Thee, who knoweth best.
Mary Webb
On a personal note I want to gain more confidence and give back in any way I can.
Skylar Laine
We need to have faith in the people who are giving this movement direction to be smart enough to stay one step ahead of what’s coming up next.
Joan Baez
We’re not going to have Medicare for all.if we at least we can take a step in that direction by giving people 50 – age 55 to 64 a chance to buy in, then we’re reconnecting with some of those ideals that go back to the great days of FDR.
Dennis Kucinich
The market is a brilliant system for the exchange of goods and services, but it doesn’t protect the environment unless it’s regulated, it doesn’t train your workforce unless it’s regulated, and it doesn’t give you the long-term investment you want.
Ken Livingstone
The main barrier between East and West today is that the white man is not willing to give up his superiority and the colored man is no longer willing to endure his inferiority.
Pearl S. Buck
For all the toll the desert takes of a man it gives compensations, deep breaths, deep sleep, and the communion of the stars.
Mary Hunter Austin
If you want to be holy then you must give time to God and not just intend to.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Thank god I’m in England, because if I lived in any other country, it’d probably be the Philippines. Because with Rodrigo Duterte as the leader they couldn’t really give me attitude on Donald Trump.
David Sedaris
If expecting something in return is your reason for giving, you are really not giving- you’re swapping. If you receive something in return for your gift, what you receive is a bonus – not a repayment of a debt.
David Cottrell
I was looking for Quincy Jones, that’s who I was obsessed with. Watching Mike [Jackson], I always knew that I had to be a showman on stage, because when people come to you live you always want them to come back. You gotta give them something to remember.
Wyclef Jean
Scandal often does as much harm to the listeners as to those who devise it, even if it were to do no other harm than disturb the mind, as it does, and give rise to temptations to speak or write about it to others.
Vincent de Paul
God, of thy goodness, give me Thyself; for Thou art enough for me, and I can ask for nothing less that can be full honor to Thee. And if I ask anything that is less, ever Shall I be in want, for only in Thee have I all.
Julian of Norwich
It is easy to give advice from a port of safety.
Friedrich Schiller
Compassion gives us a common ground to stand on regardless of your faith background. It gives us a chance to stand shoulder-to-shoulder rather than go fist-to-fist with somebody.
Max Lucado
Thinking to get at once all the gold the goose could give, he killed it and opened it only to find-nothing.
I simply haven’t the nerve to imagine a being, a force, a cause which keeps the planets revolving in their orbits and then suddenly stops in order to give me a bicycle with three speeds.
Quentin Crisp
If you take from the rich you give the rich less incentive. If you give what you have taken from the rich to the poor, you make the poor more dependent. Nobody wins.
Josh Bernstein
In one way, I suppose, I have been ‘in denial’ for some time, knowingly burning the candle at both ends and finding that it often gives a lovely light.
Christopher Hitchens
Jesus, take the wheel Take it from my hands ‘Cause I can’t do this on my own I’m letting go So give me one more chance To save me from this road I’m on Jesus, take the wheel
Carrie Underwood
Material civilization, nay, even luxury, is necessary to create work for the poor. Bread! Bread! I do not believe in a God who cannot give me bread here, giving me eternal bliss in heaven!
Bill Vaughan
Gerard Way
Social media gives one a family to share ones life with.
Sonu Nigam
You’ve gotten drunk on so many kinds of wine. Taste this. It won’t make you wild. It’s fire. Give up, if you don’t understand by this time that your living is firewood.
The only gift is giving to the poor;
All else is exchange.
Pain and suffering are the dark strands through the tapestry of your life, providing the shadows that give depth and dimension to the masterpiece God is fashioning within you.
Joseph Girzone
You know all of my fears. There’s nothing your eyes can’t see. When I tried to give up Lord, you never gave up on me.
Peter Furler
I always give the example, if you turn on the radio today, black radio, Lenny Kravitz is not black. Bob Marley wasn’t black: in the beginning, only white college stations played Bob Marley.
Spike Lee
Whatever someone did to you in the past has no power over the present. Only you give it power.
Oprah Winfrey
I’m not a fan of giving to charities. I have a few I support, but the overhead and inefficiencies really bother me. Instead, I pay people’s bills and help solve problems.
Mark Cuban
No other health disparity is so stark; virtually every woman who dies giving birth lives in a poor country.
Liya Kebede
The problem was, I was labeled as trouble – so I was like, ‘Trouble? I’ll show you trouble. You want trouble, well here it is!’ No matter what label they give you, the best thing you can do is prove them wrong.
And how could anyone consent to give up the smell of open books, old or new?
Elizabeth Kostova
Prayer reveals to souls the vanity of earthly goods and pleasures. It fills them with light, strength and consolation; and gives them a foretaste of the calm bliss of our heavenly home.
Rose of Viterbo
And Donald Trump is not going to give in to the special interests in this country, like the teachers’ union, who say that substandard education in our urban areas can only be fixed by giving it more money and that that’s all they’re going to do about it and not change the underlying problems that we have on violence.
Chris Christie
Don’t take advice from single people. No shade to everybody in here that’s single, but I say that from one point, being the single girl that just knew it all. In the long run, I had to learn. I had to be able to give that chance.
By giving every American access to quality, affordable health care, they will create a more competitive, a stronger and more secure America!
Tom Allen
If I had to give advice about parents, it would be this: Value your relationships with them. Those relationships are what you stand for. Not only are we blessed to wear a uniform that says PHILLIES on the front, but we have our names on the back. That name means you’re playing for your family.
Jim Thome
I’m afraid that we all make mistakes. One of the things that defines our character is how we handle mistakes. If we lie about having made a mistake, then it can’t be corrected and it festers. On the other hand, if we give up just because we made a mistake, even a big mistake, none of us would get far in life.
Terry Goodkind
Our God of Grace often gives us a second chance, but there is no second chance to harvest a ripe crop.
Kurt von Schleicher
Every time we give a musician the advice to give away the music and sell the T-shirt, we’re saying, “Don’t make your living in this more elevated way. Instead, reverse this social progress, and choose a more physical way to make a living.” We’re sending them to peasanthood, very much like the Maoists have.
Jaron Lanier
I don’t give a damn, laddie. Until the actual moment, when they cut me down, I shall still be looking to win. And the gods of war are fickle at best.
David Gemmell
Diversity gives our city a competitive edge.
Thomas Menino
This is one of my favorite pick up strategies: I’m constantly giving women my keys. So far, none of them have shown up. Matter of time. And I’ve been robbed twice.
Aziz Ansari
The one thing that gives you faith is the fact that people can be apart physically but they can still have an emotional connection.
Steve Coogan
We give people a taste of different eras of us, it’s kind of like a mix-tape of us.
Mikey Way
Satan has no power over us except as we give it to him. God never forces us to do right, and Satan has no power to force us to do wrong.
Sterling W Sill
An honest private man often grows cruel and abandoned when converted into an absolute prince. Give a man power of doing what he pleases with impunity, you extinguish his fear, and consequently overturn in him one of the great pillars of morality.
Joseph Addison
Self-censorship as a result of intimidation or social pressures, sometimes referred to as “political correctness”, constitutes a serious obstacle to the proper functioning of democracy. It is important to hear the views of all persons,including the “silent majority”, and to give heed to the weaker voices.
Alfred-Maurice de Zayas
I obviously prefer writing novels but I take my journalism very seriously, and I enjoy doing it between novels. It gives me an opportunity to move in the outside world.
Mordecai Richler
Some of the men and women who will not say in so many words the thing which is not, will deliberately give a false impression. They are not the servants of truth; they are the parasites of truth.
Katharine Fullerton Gerould
All saints give testimony to the truth that without real effort, no one ever wins the crown.
Thomas Becket
I wish I knew exactly who I was. I was talking to a friend earlier about the advice people give each other, advice like “just be yourself,” and how this is particularly awful because it presumes we know who we are. As if people are static and unchanging.
Mary J. Miller
We would give anything for what we have.
Tony Hoagland
The trick is to realize that after giving your best, there’s nothing more to give… Win or lose the game is finished.В  It’s over.В  It’s time to forget and prepare for the next one.
Sparky Anderson
Each one of these bodies (art-works Arp made) certainly signifies something, but it is only once there is nothing left for me to change that I begin to look for its meaning, that I give it a name.
Hans Arp
Sometimes, you need different things in life, you need different challenges that will give you that little boost.
Robbie Keane
Look. You all do things that are beautiful and magical and… and important. But me… there’s gotta be more to my life than just pots and kettles. All I’m asking you is that you give me a chance.
Open your hands, ye whose hands are full! The world is waiting for you! The whole machinery of the Divine beneficence is clogged by your hard hearts and rigid fingers.
Give and spend,
and be sure that God will send;
for only in giving and spending
do you fulfill the object of His sending.
Bill Vaughan
How is MS-DOS like MSG? Both raise your blood pressure and give you a tightening sensation around your forehead.
Ted Nelson
Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
George Orwell
Prayer gives us a pure heart and a pure heart can do much.
Mother Teresa
I used to sell marijuana to my son’s mom’s new husband. And then I would take that money and give it to her as child support.
Felipe Esparza
If Allah wants for a people ill, he gives them debates and takes away from them actions.
Real courage is not to give up hope, even in the most terrible darkness, and to carry on. That if courage and love is deep as despair, deeper, then light may come again
David Clement-Davies
Often culture gets stuck in static, traditional narratives. Contemporary ideas give culture elasticity, flexibility, which is always a breath of fresh air. But these ideas shouldn’t only be for people who can afford to go to a museum or a symposium in the “better part of town.”
Mark Bradford
However we pass Time, he passes still,
Passing away whatever the pastime,
And, whether we use him well or ill,
Some day he gives us the slip for the last time.
Robert Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton
If there’s a national-team player, he has to do extra work. He has to do extra weeks, and he can’t go on vacation even if he says: ‘Well, but I’m supposed now to have six weeks off.’ If he comes and says that, then I give him a hug and say: ‘Have fun the six weeks, but don’t come back here.’
Jurgen Klinsmann
Bending his head over hers, Leo murmured, “When I give you away at the altar, Bea, I want you to remember something. I’m not really giving you away. I’m merely allowing him the chance to love you as much as the rest of us do.
Lisa Kleypas
Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
With photography, I like to create a fiction out of reality. I try and do this by taking society’s natural prejudice and giving this a twist.
Martin Parr
Life is a labor pain; we are here to give birth to ourself.
Bernie Siegel
Dating is a give and take. If you only see it as “Taking,” you are not getting it.
Henry Cloud
The idea that He would take his attention away from the universe in order to give me a bicycle with three speeds is just so unlikely I can’t go along with it.
Quentin Crisp
When you fix something with your hands it gives you a sense of accomplishment and a sense of self worth.
Jay Leno
Before you can express love, you must find love. You must know love within yourself before you can give it to another. When you recognize or experience the truth about yourself you automatically feel love, because love is a quality of your true consciousness and true ideas.
Tae Yun Kim
One glance, one word from you gives more pleasure than all the wisdom of this world.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In the day-to-day, farm work is stress relief for me. At the end of the day, I love having this other career – my anti-job – that keeps me in shape and gives me control over a vegetal domain.
Barbara Kingsolver
My approach with actors is to try and give them whatever it is they need from me. Direction to me is about listening and responding and realizing how much they need to know from me and how much they have figured out for themselves, really.
Christopher Nolan
To be rich is to give a smile with no expectation of return.
Sri Chinmoy
You get out what you put in. If you want more, give more.
Jeanette Jenkins
They do not abuse the king that flatter him. For flattery is the bellows blows up sin; The thing the which is flattered, but a spark To which that blast gives heat and stronger glowing.
William Shakespeare
There are Depeche Mode parties around the world where people listen to our music all night long. The more remixes we can give them, the more interesting those nights have got to be.

I have nothing more to give you than my heart. Spanish saying Hearts are not to be had as a gift hearts are to be earned.
William Butler Yeats
At the end of your life, do you give a concession speech?
Jon Stewart
There is a particular hapiness in giving a man whom you like very much, good food that you have cooked yourself.
Isak Dinesen
I’m careful not to give into theatrics when times are tough, I don’t like it when somebody gives into outside pressure and puts on a show for others.
Tony La Russa
Sometimes, you are going to give up a bucket, but defense is the key. That’s the most important thing.
Terry Rozier
Sometimes you give birth to something or you’re part of a team that gives birth to an idea, and it grows and has a whole life of its own, and you feel grateful. It’s just so humbling.
Glen Hansard
I practice selfless giving not because I’m remarkable but just because I find that its terrifically fun!
Frederick Lenz
Would I employ you if you were obese? No I would not. You would give the wrong impression to the clients of my business. I need people to look energetic, professional and efficient. If you are obese you look lazy.
Katie Hopkins
There’s an invisible army of woman and men who really don’t get why we give so much of ourselves to football. And they need to SPEAK UP.
Steve Almond
We love those people who give with humility, or who accept with ease.
Freya Stark
If I’ve been hurt, I’m not one of those people who can hide it or bury it deep within. I give myself time to work through it, cry, journal, pray, call my best friends. Then I try to take a step back and get perspective. I try to remind myself of all the positive things in my life and do my best to let it go.
Kelly Stables
To give up another person’s love is a mild suicide; like a very bad inoculation as compared to the full disease.
Wyndham Lewis
I think that trying to invest through 535 people is a tough job, you know, and so I would give more latitude.
Warren Buffett
The fantasy gives you the courage to feel things.
Andrew Dominik
Your prayers are your light;
Your devotion is your strength;
Sleep is the enemy of both.
Your life is the only opportunity that life can give you.
If you ignore it, if you waste it,
You will only turn to dust.

I’ve come to give you your gift back, Mordeth,” Cauthon whispered. “I consider our debt paid in full.
Robert Jordan
You have to give people the opportunity to prove themselves.
Richard Masur
Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
Victor Hugo
Gaiety is to good-humor as animal perfumes to vegetable fragrance. The one overpowers weak spirits, the other recreates and revives them. Gaiety seldom fails to give some pain; good-humor boasts no faculties which every one does not believe in his own power, and pleases principally by not offending.
Samuel Johnson
The reality is there is only each present moment: You are called to give a talk. You get out of a building and into a car. You look out of the window. You arrive at the venue. You sit in the chair; you wait; you step out onto the stage. Every movement is simple. There is only that.
Eckhart Tolle
If you aren’t willing to face your demons-if you can’t find the courage to take on your fear and hurt and anger-you might as well wrap them up with a bow and give them to your children. Because they will be carrying the same thing…unless you are willing to do the work
R.A. Dickey
If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.
I hate the idea that you have to give up anything. I think you can be powerful and still be provocative, you can be smart and have a softness, you can have all of it.
Michael Kors
Art and psychoanalysis give shape and meaning to life and that is why we adore them, but life as it is lived has no shape and meaning.
Iris Murdoch
I have been very fortunate to be successful in business, and I believe that it is right that people who have this type of wealth should give something back into society.
Alisher Usmanov
“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things which are God’s.” One would like to add: Give unto man things which are man’s; give man his freedom and personality, his rights and religion.
Pope Pius XII
The people of Britain want a Home Secretary who will give them back their streets. They want a Home Secretary who will speak up for the victim, not the criminal.
William Hague
While we should never give up our principles, we must also realize that we cannot maintain our principles unless we survive.
Henry A. Kissinger
Riches are always over estimated; the enjoyment they give is more in the pursuit than the possession.
Sarah Josepha Hale
He who gives only what he would as readily throw away, gives without generosity; for the essence of generosity is in self-sacrifice.
Henry Taylor
Government! Government! What do I get for all I give, I’d like to know! Potholes and bombs!
Cecil Dawkins
…as man under pressure tends to give in to physical and intellectual weakness, only great strength of will can lead to the objective.
Carl von Clausewitz
Questioning my spiritual life has always been germane to what I was writing. Always. It’s because I’m not quite an atheist and it worries me. There’s that little bit that holds on: ‘Well, I’m almost an atheist. Give me a couple of months.’
David Bowie
I took acting classes in college, and once I graduated, I decided to give acting a shot when I couldn’t really think of anything else to do. It took me a couple of years to get an agent, and my first big break was The Fanelli Boys, which was a sitcom on NBC. Then I did a few television movies.
Christopher Meloni
If things are really overwhelming and you need to talk, you can give me a call at 347-273-2044.
Eugene Mirman
As a means of subsidizing lawyers the present nuclear regulation system is well designed – but is there not perhaps a cheaper way of rewarding legal diligence? It would probably be cheaper to give each law school graduate a guaranteed salary of $50,000 a year on the condition that he (or she) not practice law.
Jerry Pournelle
Some men mistake generosity for charity: these flatter themselves that they are giving gratuitously, whilst they are merely rewarding secret services offered their vanity.
Norm MacDonald
Every violent storm will eventually give way to sunshine; every dark night will finally fade into dawn.
Steve Goodier
It is high time to compel man by the might of right to give woman her political, legal and social rights. She will find her own sphere in accordance with her capacities, powers and tastes; and yet she will be woman still.
Ernestine Rose
I think there are some people who don’t have dreams so much – they have a job and money they earn. That sounds sort of condescending, but I think having a dream just makes you more happy and hopeful and gives you a reason to have the next day.
Marcy Dermansky
I just think that this whole issue of creating potential human life, not to give life, but to give the scientists a bit more of a leg-up, is fraught with danger.
Tony Abbott
I’ve made it clear in my reporting that we need a rational, effective and humane system. I don’t support amnesty, and for that reason amnesty groups attack me. That’s fine, it’s a free country. Their attacks don’t give me too much concern.
Lou Dobbs
Numberless marks does man bear in his soul, that he is fallen and estranged from God; but nothing gives a greater proof thereof, than that backwardness, which every one finds within himself, to the duty of praise and thanksgiving.
George Whitefield
Out of your whole life give but a moment! All of your life that has gone before, All to come after it, -so you ignore, So you make perfect the present, condense, In a rapture of rage, for perfection’s endowment, Thought and feeling and soul and sense.
Robert Browning
I have serious concerns about whether it’s prudent to give any foreign country substantial leverage over the U.S. economy. Instead of spending $80 billion on important programs here at home, we’re sending this money overseas just to pay interest on our debt.
Tim Johnson
Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility.
Peter Drucker
Law may prescribe that the male nipples be made equal to the female ones, but they still will not give milk.
Allan Bloom
Mind is knowledge, meditation is non-knowledge. Mind knows, meditation experiences. Mind can only give you a certain acquaintance but not the taste. If you want the taste of the Tao you have to move to no-mind, to Meditation.
What the Super Bowl did for us was give us a sense of urgency.
George Jackson
We respond to healing grace by giving it away.
Philip Yancey
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and sell it to all of those who get thirsty from complaining.
Napoleon Hill
I want to be remembered as a ballplayer who gave all he had to give.
Roberto Clemente
Penetration seems a kind of inspiration; it gives me an idea of prophecy.
Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke
When you are too specific on a target, it can drain you. Ask me where I will be when I am 60, and I will have no answer to give.
Christian Louboutin
I’ll never give up my Dior mascara.
Jessica Capshaw
Being independent gives me freedom to creatively be great. Standing on your own doesn’t always get major exposure or support, but because I make music from a pure place, I am more so excited and relieved that it actually gets out into the universe.
If you see something that you feel is familiar it gives you an important kind of emotional connection.
Marc Newson
A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his.

Daniel Handler

I just think, as women, we have to give ourselves room to be individuals. So when a woman makes a decision for herself, we as women shouldn’t set those hardcore boundaries for another woman. Just like we don’t want men setting hardcore boundaries for us.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Time and experience have taught me that fame and money very rarely go to the worthy, by the way – hence we shouldn’t ever be too impressed by either of those impostors. Value folk for who they are, how they live and what they give – that’s a much better benchmark.
Bear Grylls
The fact that order and creativity are complementary has been basic to man’s cultural development; for he has to internalize order to be able to give external form to his creativity.

John Wooden
It felt natural. That is what I remember most about becoming a father halfway through my 20s. As if Mother Nature was giving me the big thumbs up.
Tony Parsons
Treat other animals as friends and they become friends. Treat other animals as family and they become family. Give other animals your love and they will love you in return.

Trouble is a part of life, and if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you enough chance to love you enough.
Dinah Shore

It is the treating of the commonplace with the feeling of the sublime that gives to art its true power.
Jean-Francois Millet
Boxing kept me out of the streets, by giving me something to do. And it gave me a father figure in the coach that was there for me. I just reiterated what my mother was trying to teach me about focusing and getting my life together.
Martin Lawrence
Never give in, never give in, never give in.
Winston Churchill
In your Salvation shelter I saw poverty, misery, cold and hunger. You gave them bread and treacle and dreams of heaven. I give from thirty shillings a week to twelve thousand a year. They find their own dreams; but I look after the drainage.

Here and there even in our world, and now and then, even in ourselves, we catch glimpeses of a New Creation, which, fleeting as those glipmses are apt to be, give us hope both for this life and for whatever life may await us later on.
Frederick Buechner
One of the things that I love to do is travel around the world and look at archaeological sites. Because archaeology gives us an opportunity to study past civilizations, and see where they succeeded and where they failed. Use science to, you know, work backwards and say, ‘Well, really, what were they thinking?’
Nathan Myhrvold
Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Dino Kartsonakis
Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.

The ideas of the classics, so far as living, are our commonplaces. It is the modern books that give us the latest and most profound conceptions. It seems to me rather a lazy makeshift to mumble over the familiar.

Robert Fortune
Respect is what we owe; love, what we give.

Tavis Smiley
I don’t understand why prostitution is illegal, Selling is legal, f***ing is legal. So why isn’t it legal to sell f***ing? Why should it be illegal to sell something that’s legal to give away?

Going to where the silence is. That is the responsibility of a journalist: giving a voice to those who have been forgotten, forsaken, and beaten down by the powerful.

John Ruskin
Give your child a spanking once a day. If you don’t know why, he does.

Miley Cyrus
Don’t waste your time in the race looking back to see what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do. You just need to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got, all the time, for yourself.

Bobby Flay
I can’t imagine anyone ever again being able to make a film like, say, Summer Holiday, for instance, to give a British example, actually. And there will never be another Annette Funicello. I suppose it’s the slight starchiness of the innocence that makes it unrepeatable.
Quentin S. Crisp
I’d like somebody to get rid of the death tax. That’s what I want. I don’t want to get taxed just because I died. I just don’t think it’s right. If I give something to my kid, I already paid the tax. Why should I have to pay it again because I died?
Whoopi Goldberg
I would give no thought of what the world might say of me, if I could only transmit to posterity the reputation of an honest man.

I just hold it down for my side, I just hold it down for my set. I just give everybody a piece of this and make do with what’s left.
On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.
Yehuda Berg
I’m not really a job-type person, where I go do a nine-to-give. I have to be with the work at all times and experiencing it.
I think that God gives you your own will and choices. I don’t believe that we’re supposed to drag ourselves through life defeated and not see God’s blessings. But you have to make the right choices and follow that still, small voice within you. Because I think that’s how God leads us.
Joel Osteen
There is no better way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark.

Daniel Webster
Pure generosity emerges when we give without the need for our offering to be received in a certain way. That’s why the best kind of generosity comes from inner abundance, rather than from feeling deficient and hollow, starved for validation.

Rainbow Rowell
The steamship whose machinery is broken may be brought into port and made fast to the dock. She is safe, but not sound. Repairs may last a long time. Christ designs to make us both safe and sound. Justification gives the first – safety; sanctification gives us the second – soundness.
Agatha Christie
Guys who dress up like Santa Claus, see, and give presents away do it because when they was young they must have did something bad and they feel guilty about it. So now they do something they think is good to make up for it, see?
George Seaton
…often, stepping outside your comfort zone is not careless irresponsibility, but a necessary act of obedience.
Andy Stanley
When I got hit I went from having 37-year-old eyes to having 65-year-old eyes. That’s why I’ve got the glasses on – so my eye isn’t constantly trying to focus and giving me headaches. But they also help me see better: my right eye is blurry.

Mark Burnett
It’s hard to appreciate success in modeling, because it’s not something you feel like you’ve earned, so there is a little bit of bread of shame that comes with that. It’s like somebody giving you a puzzle that’s already put together.
Ashton Kutcher
It is more important to find out what you are giving to society than to ask what is the right means of livelihood.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Any man will admit if need be that his sight is not good, or that he cannot swim or shoots badly with a rifle, but to touch upon his sense of humour is to give him mortal affront.

It’s a lot of power to give the director to edit his own stuff. It’s also a time thing: you don’t want to have to wait for the guy to finish shooting before he starts editing.
Joe Dante
Give me the boy who rouses when he is praised, who profits when he is encouraged and who cries when he is defeated. Such a boy will be fired by ambition; he will be stung by reproach, and animated by preference; never shall I apprehend any bad consequences from idleness in such a boy.
More than ever I’m proud to be an American, to live in a country that respects the rights of all to marry whomever they love. The Supreme Court decision gives new meaning to the freedoms we cherish.

John Prescott
Politics may be the art of the possible; but, at least in life, give the impossible a go.
Tony Blair
If believers feel that their faith is trivialized and their true selves compromised by a society that will not give religious imperatives special weight, their problem is not that secularists are antidemocratic but that democracy is antiabsolutist.

I’ve been moved in recent days by Psalm 104:34-35: “I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will give praise to my God while I have my being. My meditation of him will be sweet. I will be glad in the Lord.” And with my song I want to praise Him.
Cliff Barrows

Let’s not give the electoral process so much importance. We have to be cynical about it. Let’s give importance to the real democracy that’s constructed on a day-to-day basis. That’s my hopeful perspective on it.

Katy Butler
I don’t want your lying kindness. Sure, you’ll smile and be so sweet to me that I’ll trust you, but the minute I don’t give you everything you want the instant you demand it, you’ll turn on me and try to crush me. You’re just like everyone else in the world. No one matters but you. (Aiden)

Gold Panda
Like Mahmoud Abbas. He is not gaining anything. He puts conditions and Israel ignores them. Israel doesn’t give him any hint that they will accept a single one of his conditions. Let me tell you. Arafat went to Oslo and signed [the agreement]. What did Israel do? They confined him in Muqata in one room and killed him.
Leila Khaled
Not even the deepest sleep will give you such a rest as meditation can. The mind goes on jumping even in deepest sleep.

I don’t care about people kissing my ass or telling me how great I am. I don’t really give a damn. I read the bad stuff a whole lot more than I read the good stuff. I read that because there are always going to be critics who are going to say how good you aren’t.
Richard Sherman
My parents are very hard working people who did everything they could for their children. I have two brothers and they worked dog hard to give us an education and provide us with the most comfortable life possible. My dad provided for his family daily. So, yes, that is definitely in my DNA.

I’ve never been someone who’s been given work because of the way I look or because I have some box office appeal. I get work because people know I’m swinging as hard as I can, trying to connect, giving it my level best. I have a face for radio, but here I am doing what I do.
John C. Reilly
The easier you make it look, the more difficult it is. Creating characters out of nothing, and making them interesting – and that’s another advice I would give to writers.
Jackie Collins
On social networking sites, we may expose ourselves, but we choose to do so. We are in control and, often wrongly, we do not feel we are giving away tradable data.
Julian Baggini
I get up every morning and thank God for giving me the opportunity to play football.
Memphis Depay
We cannot live as Christians separate from the rock who is Christ. He gives us strength and stability, but also joy and serenity.
Pope Francis
Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit. Enthusiasm is natural; it is being alive, taking the initiative, seeing the importance of what you do, giving it dignity and making what you do important to yourself and to others.
Gordon Parks
She would buy magic every day of the week. Love me, that face said. I’m so lonely, so desperate. I’ll give you whatever you want.
Janet Fitch
They give unconditional love and undying loyalty in return for regular meals and an occasional pat on the head.
Jon Winokur
You can’t give up. Sometimes you get knocked down, but you have to get back up, fighting. You have to think about the others who come behind you as well. And you have to think of the example that you set for others.
Shirley Sherrod
Everyone works hard when they want to, when they get quick results, when it’s convenient to put forth effort. The best work hard when they don’t want to, when it’s inconvenient to give it that little extra effort… and that extra effort might be just what they need to place them on top.
Peter Vidmar
Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
The Tao doesn’t take sides; it gives birth to both good and evil. The Master doesn’t take sides; she welcomes both saints and sinners. The Tao is like a bellows: it is empty yet infinitely capable. The more you use it, the more it produces; the more you talk of it, the less you understand. Hold on to the center.
Oprah Winfrey’s global influence is unparalleled. Not only has her generosity and firm belief that education is the key to a better life benefited countless women and children around the world, but her example has also inspired millions of people to give back in ways big and small.
Eli Broad
The best way to control cow and sheep is to give them a big grazing field.
Shunryu Suzuki
Just when we most need to be clearheaded, in order to face the hard facts before us, there is all too frequently a very real inclination to give way to dangerous tendencies merely as an escape from realities.
William Lyon Mackenzie King
I just got to a point where I was lying to myself constantly, so I had to face up to that. It was a lot of… I don’t want to use the words ‘self sacrifice,’ but that’s what it felt like. It was giving up who I thought I was and starting over from scratch and realizing the man that I am was good enough.
Ivan Moody
I have to admit that Christina is good—though I don’t like giving credit to Candor smart-mouths—and so is Peter—though I don’t like giving credit to future psychopaths.
Veronica Roth
This is my prayer for all of us — ‘Lord, increase our faith.’ Increase our faith to bridge the chasms of uncertainty and doubt. Grant us faith to look beyond the problems of the moment to the miracles of the future. Give us faith to do what is right and let the consequence follow.
Gordon B. Hinckley
If today you don’t have time for those who gave all their time for you yesterday then tomorrow they will not have time to give to you who has no time today
Amit Abraham
Sabbath’s golden rule: Cease from what is necessary. Embrace that which gives life.
Mark Buchanan
The Gospel gives human suffering deep, personal, and cosmic meaning, by connecting our pain to the pain of others and, finally, by connecting us to the very “pain of God”.
Richard Rohr
When you love people, you give them a priority. You have a sense of urgency about their pain.
Cornel West
To give oneself is the only way of becoming oneself.
Earl Nightingale
Give us a world where half our homes are run by men and half our institutions are run by women. I’m pretty sure that would be a better world.
Sheryl Sandberg
God nowhere tells us to give up things for the sake of giving them up. He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing worth having – viz., life with Himself. It is a question of loosening the bonds that hinder the life.
Oswald Chambers
I think it’s a huge mistake. I think regime change in Syria, and this is what – I’ve been saying this for several years now. In 2013 when we first went in, I said, you are going to give arms to the allies of al Qaida, to radical jihadists? That’s crazy.
Rand Paul
For someone who wears makeup so much all the time, it’s really important to take it off and give your skin some time to breath.
Shay Mitchell
I sail with you on the ocean of my dreams
to a far away distant Place of great beauty and tranquility.
where suffering and pain do not exist,
where we give praises for our joy and happiness,
where our Love interwines with Love for all things.
The eighties turned the whole system upside down. They would sign three groups and give them five or ten million dollars each to make three records. Out of those three records maybe one would be a hit. The economy changed, and that’s why the music changed.
Tony Visconti
The gods give to mortals not everything at the same time.
Never underestimate someone’s potential when you give them the gift of trust and faith.
Robin Crow
The wealth that increases by giving, That wealth is knowledge and is supreme of all possessions.
Narendra Modi
I try to be kind and generous, and to give to people, and to do what I think God wants me to do.
Michael Jackson
Isn’t it ironic that pay, perks, and benefits all cost your company at the bottom line, but authentic recognition, especially when it’s most unexpected, costs very little and gives the most impressive return on investment.
Chip Conley
The crowd, still shouting, gives way before us. We plough our way through. Women hold their aprons over their faces and go stumbling away. A roar of fury goes up. A wounded man is being carried off.
Erich Maria Remarque
There’s the kind of love where being around someone makes you feel energized. Just being around them gives you more energy than less.
Mason Jennings
We’re all human. After 10, 15 years you get tired, you run out of steam and ideas, you have to give a chance to somebody else. And whether you yourself are inclined to stay on, all those around you are pushing you to stay on for what they will gain.
Kofi Annan
I love giving gifts and I love receiving them. I really like giving little kids extravagant gifts. You see their little faces light up and they get excited. If it’s a really good gift, I love receiving it, like jewels, small islands.
Gina Gershon
I do think the author ought to be able to give a good reason for the way things are in his poem. Not a bad question to ask oneself.
James Dickey
In my day, we didn’t have the cocaine, so we went out and knocked somebody over the head and took the money. But today, all this cocaine and crack, it doesn’t give kids a chance.
Barry White
Give peace a chance, yes, but why not get serious and give it a place in the curriculum: peace courses in every school, every grade, every nation. Unless we teach our children peace, someone else will teach them violence.
Colman McCarthy
If the history of science teaches us anything, it is that what conquers our ignorance is research, not giving up and attributing our ignorance to the miraculous work of a creator.
Jerry A. Coyne
An artist cannot be responsible for what people make of their art. An audience loathe giving up preconceived images of an artist
Stephen Stills
The fight for reform comes down to a simple goal: giving our citizens the confidence that government serves the people first and the people only.
Bob Riley
The vision is always to point one to God and to Christ our Savior and to give Him the glory for our actions. We are encouraged to see the hope that Christ brings into our lives and to share the encouragement with our friends and neighbors.
Mike Reese
I’m a Southerner. We dream of having the family and the kids, and the parents want grandkids, that’s all they care about, give me some grandbabies.
Lance Bass
Well, any love makes us vulnerable. Whatever we love will give the gift of pain somewhere along the road. But who would live sealed in spiritual cellophane just to keep from ever being hurt? There are a few people like that. I’m sorry for them. I think they are as good as dead.
Gladys Taber
There are long periods when life seems a small, dull round, a petty business with no point, and then suddenly we are caught up in some great event which gives us a glimpse of the solid and durable foundations of our existence.
Queen Elizabeth II
Giving up something that no longer serves a purpose, or protects you, or helps you, isn’t giving up at all, it’s growing up.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Tolerance is just a makeshift, suitable for an overcrowded and overheated planet. It carries on when love gives out, and love generally gives out as soon as we move away from our home and our friends.
E. M. Forster
A surprising number of government committees will make important decisions on fundamental matters with less attention than each individual would give to buying a suit.
Herman Kahn
A lot of the people in San Francisco think of themselves as healers – not just as people delivering this base service, but giving their clients spiritual help. It’s almost like being an actor, playing a different part for each trick.
James Franco
You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes.
Ernst Haas
… as a slow-witted human being I have a very small head and I had better learn to live with it and to respect my limitations and give them full credit, rather than to try to ignore them, for the latter vain effort will be punished by failure.
Edsger Dijkstra
No one has died from giving a bad presentation. Well, at least one person did, President William Henry Harrison, but he developed pneumonia after giving the longest inaugural address in U.S. history. The easy lesson from his story: keep it short, or you might die.
Scott Berkun
What is courage? Let me tell you what I think it is. An indefinable quality that makes a man put out that extra something, when it seems there is nothing else to give. I dare you to be better than you are. I dare you to be a thoroughbred.
Herb Brooks
My dear, be a good man be virtuous be religious be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when you come to lie here. …God bless you all.
Walter Scott
I think it’s really important for the audience to feel connected, and when it’s good it’s this amazing, symbiotic relationship. I try to give as much as they can give. We’re not avant garde and we make no claim to be revolutionary, but I think we are sincere.
Thao Nguyen
Even when Krishna gives you strength, maya will delude you to think it is your strength.
Radhanath Swami
If the great Western experiment fails and we end up living in totalitarian war-on-terrorism states, one day someone’s going to say, ‘Well democracy doesn’t work because they had to give it up’.
Martin Firrell
Unused talents gives you no advantage over someone who has no talent at all.
Mark Twain
I’ve learned that if you wait long enough, you might get a second chance at something you gave up on. And sometimes you’ll be the one to give the second chance to someone else.
Wendy Mass
Everyone who gives up a serious childhood dream – of becoming an artist, a doctor, an engineer, an athlete – lives the rest of their life with a sense of loss, with nagging what ifs.
Glenn Kurtz
And yet we are but tenants. Let us assure ourselves of this, and then it will not be so hard to make room for the new administration; for shortly the great Landlord will give us notice that our lease has expired.
Joseph Jefferson
My students sometimes ask: what is a fundamentalist? I give them a very simple definition. A fundamentalist is no fun, too much damn, and not enough mental.
Bart D. Ehrman
We invented our computers in the ’80s. We networked them together in the ’90s. Now we’re giving them eyes, ears and sensory organs. And we’re asking them to observe and manipulate the world on our behalf.
Esther Dyson
You don’t help a depressed economy by giving control of its resources to politicians.
Robert P. Murphy
The real problem, both in discussions of mass shootings and in discussions of gun control, is that too many people are too committed to a vision to allow mere facts to interfere with their beliefs, and the sense of superiority that those beliefs give them.
Thomas Sowell
The first glance from the eyes of the beloved is like the spirit that moved upon the face of the waters, giving birth to heaven and earth.
Khalil Gibran
The film industry gives you the opportunity to meet interesting people.
Betty White
An example I often use to illustrate the reality of vanity, is this: look at the peacock; it’s beautiful if you look at it from the front. But if you look at it from behind, you discover the truth… Whoever gives in to such self-absorbed vanity has huge misery hiding inside them.
Pope Francis
Breastfeeding is an unsentimental metaphor for how love works, in a way. You don’t decide how much and how deeply to love – you respond to the beloved, and give with joy exactly as much as they want.
Marni Jackson
It’s connectivity that really makes the industrial Internet work: it’s giving the right information at the right time to the right person or right machine to make the right decision.
John T. Chambers
Anything the government gives you is just another link in the chains that destroy your liberty.
Alan Keyes
It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?
Jim Carrey
I give up a personal life… to pursue what I love and make my fans happy.
Justin Bieber
Meditation is like giving a hug to our ourselves, getting in touch whith that awesome reality in us. While meditating we feel a deep sense of intimacy with God, a love that is inexplicable.
Paramahansa Yogananda
The fact must never be forgotten that no magazine publisher in the United States could give what it is giving to the reader each month if it were not for the revenue which the advertiser brings the magazine.
Edward Bok
Some artists approach their ‘why?’ intuitively, and work toward giving it a voice through their technical skill. Others begin as technicians, and develop, or discover, their ‘why?’ as they become stronger communicators.
Sara Genn
I pray to God to give me perseverance and to deign that I be a faithful witness to Him to the end of my life for my God.
Saint Patrick
the various earth odors all have a separate tale to tell, and the leaf mold of the woods bears a wholly different fragrance from that of the soil under pasture turf, or the breath that the garden gives off in great sighs of relief when it is relaxed and refreshed by a summer shower.
Mabel Osgood Wright
I believe that the polling data that shows people give Obama 53% approval, I happen to think the polls are right. I just think people are not being honest with the pollster.
Rush Limbaugh
Integrity gives. It is not a taker.
Johnny Hunt
