Gary Chapman
I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair… I think that was a good motivator.

Jimmy Dean
I have two rules when you come to my house on Halloween. Wear a costume – ’cause if you’ve manned your door at your own house, you know how many kids will roll up, 14 years old with no costume and an attitude. My other rule: don’t grab. Let me assess you and then design a candy situation for you.
Greg Behrendt

I come from a blue collar family, but my personal life isn’t. I didn’t get the gene that my grandfather had in spades. He was a local hero. Built the church that I went to.

Spending $1 for a brand new house would feel very, very good. Spending $1,000 for a ham sandwich would feel very, very bad.

I wanted to touch on how we look on each other. Good hair, light skin, you must be smart; if you’re black, you’re dark-skinned, you’re ugly. That really happens.

Usain Bolt
It was just how my parents treated me. It was the world they decided to show me. I was really sheltered. My grandmother kept me locked in the house when I was staying, you know, with the family in Soweto. And every household, for instance, had to have a registry of everyone who lived in that house.
Trevor Noah

J. R. R. Tolkien
I suppose I could understand it if men had simply forgotten unicorns, but not to see them at all, to look at them and see something else — what do they look to one another, then? What do trees look like to them, or houses, or real horses, or their own children?
Peter S. Beagle

Ellen Hopkins
I’m pretty good at remaining calm during an emergency. My house burned down when I was 12, which made me really pragmatic about what needed to be done. But I can be bad in that I compartmentalize a lot of emotions and push them away to deal with them at a later date.
Anne Hathaway
We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but non-being is what we use.
I came from an Italian house. The refrigerator was always full. I never knew you had to buy food. I thought there were food fairies that came at night.

Aisha Hinds
I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty. You don’t grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house; and so you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look!
I have never met a heavy heart that wasn’t a phone booth with a red cape inside Some people will never understand the kind of superpower it takes for some people to just walk outside Some days I know my smile looks like the gutter of a falling house But my hands are always holding tight to the ripchord of believing

Anne Tyler
I’m also honored to be here with the speaker of the House – just happens to be from the state of Illinois. I’d like to describe the speaker as a trustworthy man.

George W. Bush
I have moved to a smaller house in Paris, and I don’t fancy having so much staff now.

Eric Alterman
I’ve done enough for a while and people get fed up of seeing you, but apart from that, although I’m young, I need a bit of rest. You could say I have become a house husband. It’s not a new man thing, it’s just largely a boring man who doesn’t mind staying in the house thing.
James McAvoy
My whinstone house my castle is, I have my own four walls.

Sara Gideon
The houses people live in reflect their opinions of themselves.
Joseph Girzone
After college, I shot a pilot for a show on Lifetime, which was basically House of Style for a TV lover. I think I got paid $1,500, and I was like, “Mom, I’m moving out! I made it!” I did two seasons of that, but I felt like a talking head and wanted to do more.

Tony DiSanto
Everything in my house was either free or under 40 bucks, and people come to my house and can’t believe that I picked up everything on the street or in a thrift shop.
Elle Varner
Children are a house’s enemy. They don’t mean to be – they just can’t help it. It’s their enthusiasm, their energy, their naturally destructive tendencies.
Delia Ephron
Jace, on the other hand, looked like the sort of boy who’d come over to your house and burn it down for kicks.
Cassandra Clare
Would it be possible to stand still on one spot more majestically — while simulating a triumphant march forward — than it is done by the two English Houses of Parliament?
Alexander Herzen
Morrissey was my Mrs. Garrett, the house mother from the Facts of Life, a soothing adult figure giving me words of wisdom.
Rob Sheffield
I’m fed most by nature; going to the beach or lying in the grass are the greatest kinds of medicine. Cooking for other people. Kicking it with friends and family. And I love dancing – by myself in my house, with friends anywhere, or in a class.
Idara Victor
You walk into a restaurant when chefs are not there and it’s different. The magic isn’t there. Why pay top pounds when the chef is not in the house? I feel cheated. I don’t mind paying big money for food but if I go to Paul Bocuse’s restaurant I want Paul in the house.
Marco Pierre White
People don’t understand that you can actually lose your life going to jail. There’s more violence in the jail-house than there is on the streets.
Snoop Dogg
I wish I were less awkward around strangers. I never know what to say when someone asks me who I am and what the hell I’m doing in their house.
Andy Ihnatko
We believe the 36, nearly 40, billion pound discount given for a right to buy houses took a million houses out of the public housing sector which is desperately needed for rent.
John Prescott
I’m a crybaby, which means I barricade myself in my house and scream for awhile, and when it subsides enough that I can leave, I go for a run. Tears make great fuel. Night runs, or rainy days, are best for this as you don’t get as many questioning looks.
Allison McAtee
I remember being banned from other houses as a younger child during the winter holiday season; I was the only one who didn’t believe in Santa Claus, and I was ruining everyone’s Christmas.
Jami Attenberg
An old man in a house is a good sign.
Benjamin Franklin
I’m very superstitious about going on other people’s sets. You have to ask permission of the director; you shouldn’t just turn up and skulk about in the background. It’s very rude. You have to ask them personally. It’s like a vampire being invited into a house.
Ben Wheatley
Everything inspires me. It could be a movie. It could be a book. It could be a house. It could be one word – I’ll think for hours and hours about one word sometimes. It could be anything.
Franca Sozzani
Some guys run their house. Some guys run around their house. I’m a guy who runs my house!
Sam Cassell
When the president of the United States goes out at, you know, 8:00 o’clock in the morning and then his own party votes gets him 2 to 1 in the house, you know that somehow a message isn’t getting out. It takes real leadership.
Warren Buffett
I thought that I had a really healthy relationship with food, and I went home to my parents’ house for a week because I cut my foot, and was recovering. I just ate loads, ate family meals, went along with group activities. And I realized how unhealthy my relationship actually is with food.
Bryce Dallas Howard
It is taken care of. Nothing will not break into my Pit or the Far Reaches! I cannot speak for the other parts of the House, but we have Nothing well in hand here. I understand Nothing as no one else does! – Grim Tuesday
Garth Nix
I’m super organized, but a horrible house cleaner.
Angie Harmon
I take a lot of ladies’ vitamins, because I never buy my own and that’s what’s in the house. More iron.
Akiva Schaffer
Honestly, I’d prefer to live with gay guys. They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff. Because I’m always away, coming home to a clean house means a lot to me. Trust me, I’ve lived with a lot of roommates, and straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.
Kellan Lutz
First I wanted to be a veterinarian. And then I realized you had to give them shots to put them to sleep, so I decided I’d just buy a bunch of animals and have them in my house instead.
Paris Hilton
For just a few dollars registration, you got temporary possession of a good piece of land. Live on it for five years, build a house, and farm it, and it was yours. What a brilliant economic stimulus!
Charles R. Morris
By the time I was a teenager, when I went outside the house, it was about hip-hop all the time. Nothing but hip-hop, block parties.
Mary J. Blige
At my house I have a full-size time machine that I’ve built over a couple of years… I love looking at people’s faces when they walk into my office. They’re literally astounded.
Gregory Nicotero
The policy of the house of Austria, which aimed at destroying the independence of Hungary as a state, has been pursued unaltered for three hundred years.
Lajos Kossuth
If this universe is the House of God, then I must say it is quite a dark house despite several hundred billion suns!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
There are lots more people in the House. I don’t know exactly – I’ve never counted, but at least a couple hundred.
Dan Quayle
That is, I think that what I do, that democracy in Venezuela hasn’t really worked well since the [Ugo] ChГЎvez era and that it has gotten even worse since the last elections, in which the Maduro government lost control of the House, of the country’s legislature.
Marco Rubio
If I had never ventured beyond being a stand-up comic, then I would be sitting in my house today working on my Leonardo DiCaprio impression.
Jim Carrey
London is a city of clubs and private houses. You have to be a member.
Alec Waugh
I remember my father used to beg for a loan to buy a house. He had to beg the banks for a loan.
Sudha Chandran
Books are like blankets, the mere sight of them around the house provides warmth and comfort. They are like mirrors, too, reflecting places I’ve been, phases I’ve been through, people I’ve loved or thought I did.
Mary Schmich
The house shakes…with the roar of the cannon. No sleep for me tonight.
Abigail Adams
Nothing annoys a woman more than to have company drop in unexpectedly and find the house looking as it usually does.
Frank Dane
All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them.
Erma Bombeck
For, just as it has been said that there is no half-way house between Rome and Reason, so it may be said that there is no half-way house between State Socialism and Anarchism.
Benjamin Tucker
There are producers that have been my friends for many years that I’m still a big fan of, from Boyz Noize to solo acts. Justice. It really varies. All the way to like…sometimes I’ll just find some dude out of Chicago that makes a great house song. I’m feeling a lot of the deep house stuff, Jamie Jones.
I passed by the brothel as though
past the house of a beloved.
Franz Kafka
When I was a kid, we never heard of smog, ozone depletion, acid rain, green house gasses.
Dennis Weaver
I try to use my privilege to deconstruct from inside the racist, homophobic, heterocentric house, as an ally, while compatriot tools dismantle the patriarch’s house. I do this by pushing the boundaries of what makes a poem and what makes an essay. My tools are blur, cross, pulverize, confront, remember.
James Allen Hall
Man or woman in the White House. How about that?
Jedediah Bila
So long as all the increased wealth which modern progress brings goes but to build up great fortunes, to increase luxury and make sharper the contrast between the House of Have and the House of Want, progress is not real and cannot be permanent.
Henry George
London is the clearing-house of the world.
Joseph Chamberlain
Do you realize the responsibility I carry? I’m the only person standing between Richard Nixon and the White House.
John F. Kennedy
Your treasure house is within; it contains all you’ll ever need.
Baizhang Huaihai
It is true that when you’re in the White House alone, it is a lonely place. Big and lonely.
Nancy Reagan
The Obamas, especially Michelle, have radiated the sense that Americans do not appreciate what they sacrifice by living in a gilded cage. They’ve forgotten Rule No. 1 of politics: No one sheds tears for anyone lucky enough to live at the White House.
Maureen Dowd
[The Lord] has indicated that the greatest work we parents can do is performed in our homes, and our homes can be heaven, particularly when our marriages are sealed in the house of God.
Thomas S. Monson
When I moved into one of the worst inner-cities in America to do missionary work I had to do risk assessment, and It was a risk. My family could have been in danger, house could get robbed at any minute but I count it all as nothing compared to knowing Jesus it was all worth it at the end of the day.
Some would argue that the president himself benefited from a form of affirmative action because as a C student, he only got into Yale because his father was a wealthy alumnus. But the White House counters that Saddam is a menace and must be stopped.
Jon Stewart
President Obama invited John McCain to the White House to give his opinion on Egypt, specifically what it’s like to be a mummy.
Bill Maher
Beauty is all very well at first sight; but who ever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?
George Bernard Shaw
I bought a house, and I’ve been decorating it
Charlie Hunnam
I married my Japanese wife Mayumi who I’m so happy with, she’s been so supportive. I live part time in Japan at her house, so I’ve been always very influenced by Japan. Since I guess the 70’s or so. I’ve come to appreciate so much of their culture.
Terry Bozzio
I did a lot of work on energy efficiency at the White House. By the time I left we had taken the equivalent of six hundred cars a year off the road in reduced greenhouse gas emissions just in the White House complex.
William J. Clinton
I grew up in a house where there were no taboos, so it came originally from a pretty innocent place, where I was shocked at the things that shocked people.
Sarah Silverman
The Israeli puppeteer travels to Washington and meets with the puppet in the White House. He then goes down Pennsylvania Avenue and meets with the puppets in Congress. The Israeli leader then ‘brings back millions of dollars’ in aid to Israel.
Ralph Nader
I actually graze at several of the homes while Im playing. There a lot of food going on. I drink and eat and use the restrooms in a lot of the houses. What better way to really get closer to the fans than to steal their soap from the restrooms as they allow you to enter their homes?
George Lopez
The New York Times reports that [Donald] Trump wants [Jared] Kushner in the White House, and he’s exploring whether he can take a position. It’s problematic, though, because even an unpaid job could fall under a law prohibiting nepotism.
Steve Inskeep
The spiritual path wrecks the body And afterwards restores it to health. It destroys the house to unearth the treasure, And with that treasure builds it better than before.
What’s this?” She pulled out a card and held it away from her face. “I can’t read what it says.” I took it from her and read it aloud. 1. Beeber Bifocal 2. Twenty Mile House 3. Bee 4. Your escape Fourteen miracles to go.
Maria Semple
The Amish like to live a very plain lifestyle, the way they think God intended. It sort of brings you back to, like, ‘Little House on the Prairie’ days or something.
Verne Troyer
The planets show what is happening, the signs how it is happening, and the houses where it is happening.
Howard Sasportas
I’m in a house where if the washing machine shuts off, it sings a song. If iPad gets a message, it sings a song. I’m living in a real postmodern time – every single thing sings to you to tell you it’s started, it’s stopped, you’ve got a message, you didn’t get a message.
Abel Ferrara
When you don’t have love, it’s like there’s a party going on, and everybody was invited, except for you. And you just happened to be walking by that house in the rain…
Dane Cook
It still strikes me as strange that anyone could have any moral objection to someone else’s sexuality. It’s like telling someone else how to clean their house.
River Phoenix
If you had an essentially happy childhood, that tends to dwell with you.
Tracy Kidder
The House okayed the gasoline tax cut, which will increase the deficit, line the pockets of the oil companies, and hurt the environment; Dole said that if there was just some way this could interfere with people’s sex lives, it would be perfect legislation.
Bill Maher
Ordinary people regard a man of a certain force and flexibility of character as they do a lion; they look at him with a sort of wonder, perhaps they admire him; but they will on no account house with him.
Angela Merkel
I sometimes think that the size of our happiness is inversely proportional to the size of our house.
Gregory David Roberts
You just realize that you have to be committed to this thing in this kind of world that we’re in the more your support group dwindles and you start seeing your peers buying houses and getting corporate jobs. So that can be discouraging.
J. Robbins
Many years ago I also bought a house in Provence for about 70,000 francs. It had no electricity or running water, and no road leading to the house, but gradually we made improvements. It’s my escape and I love it.
Eric Idle
One of the reasons that the Senate was structured and founded the way it is, as opposed to the House, it was designed for gridlock. It was designed to stop massive new laws being passed and voted on daily. It was designed to stop the growth of government.
Rush Limbaugh
No man who owns his own house and lot can be a Communist. He has too much to do.
William Levitt
Do not economize on the hymeneal rites; do not prune them of their splendor, nor split farthings on the day when you are radiant. A wedding is not house-keeping.
Victor Hugo
A man builds a house in England with the expectation of living in it and leaving it to his children; we shed our houses in America as easily as a snail does his shell.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
I always wanted to live in a haunted house.
Dick Cavett
I won $100,000 in Vegas, which buys furniture for my beach house. That takes nerves. You can’t think if I’m wrong I’ll blow $30,000.
Jennifer Tilly
When all else fails, cleaning house is the perfect antidote to most of life’s ills.
Sue Grafton
What you experience in the army, aged 18 to 21, is what you take through all your life. You cross invisible lines: you shoot someone, get shot, break into people’s houses. It’s naive to think you won’t carry anything into your life.
Etgar Keret
The trade magazine and all was banned in my house. The first time I read a film magazine was when I was 18.
Abhishek Bachchan
When I was a kid, being outside was the norm. Rain or shine, our parents would tell us to get out of the house.
David Suzuki
Curiosity ran unchecked through him, like the wind outside through the deserted streets, along the canal, around the little wooden houses, everywhere, as far as the mountain.
Gabrielle Roy
Good roads, good houses, adequate electricity, good schools or good hospitals in the village are indeed, the parameters of progress. However, in my view, 100 percent literate village is the true symbol of real progress.
Narendra Modi
No-one is going to sit down and read Bleak House to the family any more, but they can all huddle up happily in front of Charles Bronson.
Martin Amis
We are a generation of settlers, and without the steel helmet and gun barrel, we shall not be able to plant a tree or build a house.
Moshe Dayan
In the history of thought and culture the dark nights have perhaps in some ways cost mankind less grief than the false dawns, the prison houses in which hope persists less grief than the promised lands where hope expires.
Louis Kronenberger
The goodnesses you do will beautifully cover you like the beautiful flowers covering a country house!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
She dreams a lot. She dreams of Ondines and falling maidens and houses burning in the night. But search her dreams all you like and you’ll never find Prince Charming. No knight on a white horse gallops into her dreams to carry her away. When she dreams of love, she dreams of smashed potatoes.
Jerry Spinelli
I’ve had some wonderful times at the White House. I’ve been with Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton and Bush.
Dom DeLuise
I wanted it to be as multi-windowed as possible, so that the reader felt like they were seeing all the different ways in to a big haunted house.
Benjamin Percy
If a poor house is well kept, or a poor girl well groomed, there is elegance if not beauty. If good people should come upon hard times, why should they immediately give up on themselves?
Zicheng Hong
‘The prison’ begins well before its doors. It begins as soon as you leave your house – and even before.
Michel Foucault
I used to throw mad parties because I had all this damn money! Some of them got out of hand. People wanted to fight, steal necklaces off of people’s necks. A little weird. I had to have armed security at my house. I was young, 21, 22.
DJ Quik
Your body is the house you live in. If you destroy it…you have to leave!
Joyce Meyer
This house was our dream-the gardens, the study, even the swimming pool. Even though I can’t see John when I wake up in the morning, I can always feel him here with me.
Shirley Knight
For me, money is to use – it’s only to use. So I never have money because I always spend. That’s why in a way I protect myself in having houses. But if I had just cash or kept it in the bank, I’d spend it immediately. But not for stupid things. So I don’t like to have money. I never have money in my pocket.
Franca Sozzani
I do not worship the devil. But magic does intrigue me. Magic of all kinds. I bought Crowley’s house to go up and write in. The thing is, I just never get up that way. Friends live there now.
Jimmy Page
I got an idea: people like news why don’t we write the news down on a piece of paper, and we’ll gas them up and drive them to everyone’s house. I mean, if you were going to say that now, it doesn’t sound like a great idea, because there are other ways you can distribute the news.
Biz Stone
I don’t like to dwell all day over one scene as you do in a big feature.
Jerry Orbach
Most of the time when I’m in Australia I’m not really working, it seems. I’m just at home, getting on with renovating my house or writing music or whatever. So I get back to doing all the stuff that I naturally do. Whereas if I’m away working, that’s all there is to do, is to concentrate on the work.
Guy Pearce
… even in houses commonly held to be ‘booky’ one finds, nine times out of ten, not a library but a book-dump.
Edith Wharton
The house is a fine house, when good folks are within.
George Herbert
Sometimes I start doing the remix and I just can’t find anything good, so I just decline after trying. And I never give a remix if I don’t like it. That makes some people angry, but I’m not a production house making remixes, and I try to do them in an artistic way, not trying to repeat myself.
John Talabot
I really want to write a novel. A few years ago I went so far as to do the clichГ© thing and rent this house in upstate [New York]. I still have the story, but I got 15,000, 20,000 words in and it was like, This is falling apart. I can’t figure out.
Craig Finn
There should be less talk. . . . What do you do then? Take a broom and clean someone’s house. That says enough.
Mother Teresa
I wouldn’t run for President. I wouldn’t want to move to a smaller house.
We don’t know, ultimately, if we’ll end up in San Francisco, but we’re talking about keeping the house. It would be nice to always have a place here.
Matt Cain
If I could have enough money that I know I could buy a house someday, and if I want to have kids, I could raise them – I don’t need the money grab. I don’t need to have a mansion. I just need to be creative and happy.
Chris Gethard
You’ve got to keep a dog with you at all times. A dog cannot roam. You’ve got to keep him in the house with you. You can’t have a wild dog and expect days to go good.
George Foreman
Let’s pretend six people live in your house. And you propose that only four people get to eat every day, and you put it to a vote. If four people vote that only four people get to eat, two people don’t, that prevails. That’s what a democracy is. It’s strictly majority-minority rule.
Rush Limbaugh
That’s all there was in our house: poetry and choir rehearsal and duets and so forth; I listened to Dad and Mother discuss things about poetry and delivery and voice and diction – I don’t think anyone could know how much it really means.
Chuck Berry
We came from nothing really. One house. Ten people. Even days the lights was off. The worst days was not eating. Surviving off rice and toast.
Lil Durk
Our house was always filled with dogs… They helped make our house a kennel, it is true, but the constant patter of their filthy paws and the dreadful results of their brainless activities have warmed me throughout the years.
Helen Hayes
I really want to be governor when I have a partner in the White House.
Jennifer Granholm
‘Spectrum’ is in part a disco song. But we play it hard, and it’s a real euphoric, wailing tune. It’s kind of like a total house anthem, in a way, but it seems to be going down really well. We’ve got all the grunge kids going mad for disco house raves.
Florence Welch
Our Southern brethren have done grievously, they have rebelled and have attacked their father’s house and their loyal brothers. They must be punished and brought back, but this necessity breaks my heart.
Robert Anderson
My last trip to New Orleans was for the fifth anniversary of Katrina, and I had the awesome opportunity to bring my family down. We all worked on a house together and met some of the families.
AnnaLynne McCord
Death is not the master of the house, he is only the porter of the king’s lodge.
John Henry Jowett
If you’re a guest [at my $113 million house], you’ll be able to call up on screens throughout the house almost any image you like – presidential portraits, reproductions of High Renaissance paintings, pictures of sunsets, airplanes, skiers in the Andes, a rare French stamp, the Beatles in 1965.
Bill Gates
I think the house call is one of the ways I get an insight into the ways in which people live and the importance of environment in keeping people healthy.
Risa J. Lavizzo-Mourey
To wake up when the sun comes up and enjoy that and then, when the sun goes down, to have a nice property or house where I could watch it on my porch when I’m older. It would be peaceful.
Zack Greinke
I understand Jacqueline Kennedy has redone the White House in eighteenth-century style. Why, then, I’d fit in perfectly.
Barry Goldwater
I have a very tiny house in Burbank. I drive an 8-year-old car. I’m gonna drive it into the ground. I enjoy what I enjoy.
Patton Oswalt
Man lives in the house of nature. If he destroys the house, he shall be destroyed as well!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Love is a bridge over the sea of change. Do not build a house on it.
Sathya Sai Baba
It would clearly not be an improvement to build all houses exactly alike in order to create a perfect market for houses, and the same is true of most other fields where differences between the individual products prevent competition from ever being perfect.
Friedrich August von Hayek
When Wellington thrashed Bonaparte,
As every child can tell,
The House of Peers, throughout the war,
Did nothing in particular,
And did it very well
W. S. Gilbert
Time to plant tears, says the almanac. The grandmother sings to the marvelous stove and the child draws another inscrutable house.
Elizabeth Bishop
These White House scandals are not going away anytime soon. People in Kenya are now saying he’s 100 percent American. That’s how bad it’s gotten.
Jay Leno
At midnight every night, I would methodically leave the house for a couple hours’ walk, come back in, and record. And then the sun came up. If I had done something good, then I’d be happy and go to sleep.
Bill Callahan
Getting your house in order and reducing the confusion gives you more control over your life. Personal organization some how releases or frees you to operate more effectively.
Larry King
I grew up at my grandmother’s house, and she had a beautiful garden. I used to hate mowing the lawn and weeding, which is what you do when you’re a kid. I loathe gardening, but I love gardens, and I have two beautiful gardens.
Elton John
When I sing for God, I feel myself in accord with God, and the house of God, Mecca, is right in front of me. And I worship. When I sing for Mohammed, peace be upon him, our prophet, I feel like I am sitting right next to his tomb, Medina, and paying him respect and admitting to myself that I accept his message.
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
My house was bugged. They couldn’t find any information on me being a subversive because I happen to love America; I just don’t like some of the things the government is doing.
Eartha Kitt
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.
Ellen Goodman
If there’s cheesecake in the house, I’ll have some.
Kelly Ripa
A road to a friend’s house is never long.
Ann Richards
Goose neck is a delicacy. You have to at least try it. In fancy restaurants people pay up to fifty dollars a plate for this stuff.’ And at our house we were force-fed it for free. Just another irony of life.
Janette Rallison
I don’t know if Jared Leto or Leo [DiCaprio] would ever do Fuller House, but you never know.
Jodi Sweetin
The White House belongs to all Americans. It’s supposed to be something we’re proud of.
Nancy Reagan
Our family room, where we live, is about togetherness and ease. Nothing in my house is too formal. There are no coasters on tables; the kids can eat Popsicles on the couch if they want to. I let them ride these little cycles we got for them when they were 3 that have rubber wheels and no pedals.
Cindy Crawford
I think it really came down to two basic things, one, what General Mike Flynn did, and just what he discussed with the Russian ambassador, but, more significantly, how he misled senior officials at the White House, including Vice President Mike Pence, about the nature of those communications.
Greg Miller
I like to think of my house as nothing more than a glorified console for my television; the ultimate stereo cabinet.
Drew Carey
I would say – and paint doesn’t peel unless it’s acrylic paint, so maybe it is acrylic paint that they’re using, not oil paint. So let me say yes, it would be acrylic house paint, which, when it dries, peels very nicely. So let’s go with that.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
For a single path leads to the house of Hades.
Our world, like a charnel-house, is strewn with the detritus of dead epochs.
Le Corbusier
All people are meant to be creative in a certain way. What way? Perhaps I was cut out to be a wonderful housewife, with a marvelous sense of cooking, being with my friends, running a perfect house. But I am not ambitious towards anything.
Diana Vreeland
The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.
Khalil Gibran
Guantanamo Bay houses enemy combatants ranging from terrorist trainers and recruiters to bomb makers, would-be suicide bombers, and terrorist financiers.
Chris Chocola
I live in, literally, the same home when I was swiping my first bank card and wondering if I’d have to put back the Charmin. We still don’t have a dishwasher. My mom has done all these gardens so now my house looks like the garden shack in the middle of Versailles.
Rachael Ray
When a man says, “Get out of my house! what would you have with my wife?” there is no answer to be made.
Miguel de Cervantes
Do you know what you call those who use towels and never wash them, eat meals and never do the dishes, sit in rooms they never clean, and are entertained till they drop? If you have just answered, ‘A house guest,’ you’re wrong because I have just described my kids.
Erma Bombeck
From my time at the CIA to my time in the House, I’ve dedicated my career to protecting our democracy and ensuring it works for all of us.
Abigail Spanberger
I would rather be a serf in a poor man’s house and be above ground than reign among the dead.
I do not want my house to be rounded by walls and my windows to be closed to other cultures. I wish to become familiar with the culture of lands as much as possible but I will not permit them to affect me or shake me from my own status.
Mahatma Gandhi
When I was 6 years old, I was in a rock band that was horrible called ‘Dead End.’ The name kind of described us. People liked us; we would go and perform at coffee houses and stuff.
Aaron Carter
You always worry and you always fear what’s next. But you eventually just push forward knowing you can’t really do much about getting rid of the anxiety. You see people get pets after their kids leave the house because they’re so used to having something around to dote on and worry about.
Drew Magary
I got a naughty thrill out of listening to music that was that dirty, especially being that young and able to listen to it around my parents. Kids would come over to my house to listen to Too $hort records.
Moshe Kasher
If forced to choose between the penitentiary and the White House for four years, I would say the penitentiary, thank you.
William Tecumseh Sherman
When my daughter left for college, I lost my in-house consultant to youth culture. There’s just stuff I don’t get. And there’s something kind of pathetic about someone my age trying to pretend she gets it, so I don’t try to pretend.
Emily Yoffe
I think I’ve never left my house to take a plane without writing my will. There must be about 30 wills in my drawers, everywhere, in the kitchen. Everywhere, I have wills because I write wills more easily than I write love letters.
Sophie Calle
So if Hillary [Clinton] is elected president, it will make history in two ways. She’ll be the first woman president. And Bill Clinton, he’ll be the first man and the first former president to return to the White House in the capacity of spouse.
Terry Gross
I do feel that houses have faces – and feelings too.
Alanna Knight
One cat in a house is a sign of loneliness.
Edward Dahlberg
With the first money I ever made I bought my Mommy and Daddy a car, and helped them fix their house up.
Dolly Parton
President Bush said yesterday that it was appropriate for the White House to invoke Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers’s religion in making the case for her to skeptical conservatives, triggering a debate over what role, if any, her evangelical faith should play in the confirmation battle.
Peter Baker
If I could only remember that the days were not bricks to be laid row on row, to be built into a solid house, where one might dwell in safety and peace, but only food for the fires of the heart.
Edmund Wilson
I always wondered why the makers leave housekeeping and cooking out of their tales. Isn’t it what all the great wars and battles are fought for — so that at day’s end a family may eat together in a peaceful house?
Ursula K. Le Guin
The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
Khalil Gibran
If I thought there was some reason to be concerned about them, I wouldn’t be sleeping in this house tonight. (When asked about continued presence of Soviet nuclear submarines along US coastlines)
Ronald Reagan
I don’t need 15 houses. Owning real estate doesn’t mean much to me. I don’t like to think about things like that. I don’t need 12 boats, or even the world’s largest boat with a crew of 80. I’d have to take care of them, to worry about them. I get a lot more fun out of life without all the bells and whistles.
Warren Buffett
Frank Rich, Paul Krugman, Maureen Dowd, a whole host of brilliant, courageous critics say all kinds of things, and he [Barack Obama] treats them with respect. They get invited to the White House. I say the same thing, he talks to me like I’m a Cub Scout.
Cornel West
Once there had been joy, but now there was only sadness, and it was not, he knew, alone the sadness of an empty house; it was the sadness of all else, the sadness of the Earth, the sadness of the failures and the empty triumphs.
Clifford D. Simak
I started singing about three years ago, I entered a local singing competition called Stratford Idol. The other people in the competition had been taking singing lessons and had vocal coaches. I wasn’t taking it too seriously at the time, I would just sing around the house. I was only 12 and I got second place.
Justin Bieber
I had a dream about building a house on a dock, composed from 100 triangles. You’d have to sail from room to room. And maybe the entrance would be the mouth of a whale.
Henrik Vibskov
I wouldn’t change one thing about my professional life, and I make it a point not to dwell on my mistakes
Ethel Merman
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
The keeper of the keys was one of the most important roles a household servant could hold (Mark 13:32-34). A higher official held the keys in a royal kingdom (Is 22:22) and in God’s house, the temple.
Craig S. Keener
Go oft to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I never knew when I was gong to leave. I might be walking over to a kid’s house, then of all a sudden I would just stick out my thumb and hitchhike across three states.
Rickie Lee Jones
I’ve been going to Granada for many years and 12 years ago bought a house a few miles outside the city.
Alexei Sayle
I do house things. I paint. I do portraits. I also paint my house.
Willa Ford
I have a lot of mirrors around my house, not because I like to look at myself, but because I like the light and perspective they bring to a room.
Hayley Mills
Every member of Congress and every Senator kind of runs their own race with their own message because they don’t want to necessarily have dictated from the White House what that message should be.
Christopher Michael Cillizza
All reformers, however strict their social conscience, live in houses just as big as they can pay for.
Logan Pearsall Smith
beware the Lure of a handsome Face, the all too ready Assumption that the lovely Fa&#231ade must needs have lovely Chambers within; for as ’tis with Great Houses, so, too, with Great Men.
Erica Jong
Of course [the White House press corps] are a factor, and the reason is they’re not media. They happen to pretend or portray people running around finding out things nobody else knows and telling everybody, but that’s not what they do.
Rush Limbaugh
I had fun coming every day and playing in front of a packed house – it was exciting.
Jason Giambi
Whom God loves, his house is sweet to him.
Miguel de Cervantes
Soberity makes me write dull songs about reorganizing the knick knacks in my house.
Devin Townsend
My father left his piano at the house when he left, and I wasn’t allowed to play it when he was there because I wasn’t as good as him. So when he left, I was determined to get as good as him, and I taught myself how to play music, and I just stuck with it, and I did it all the time.
Man takes root at his feet, and at best he is no more than a potted plant in his house or carriage till he has established communication with the soil by the loving and magnetic touch of his soles to it.
John Burroughs
If we move away from either/or thinking, and if we think, okay, every day of my life that I walk out of my house I am a combination of race, gender, class, sexual preference and religion or what have you, what gets foregrounded?
Bell Hooks
And who knows? Somewhere out there in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president’s spouse. I wish him well!
Barbara Bush
In working class districts, you had several families living together in the one house, and it was very difficult to get a house, because the politicians who controlled housing were doing so in a very discriminatory fashion.
John Hume
Ive never been the type of guy thats ever needed a lot of things or any fancy things, but my lifelong goal has always been to have a piece of land and a house.
Tyler Farr
Interesting, he later reflected, was perhaps not the correct word.By the time he and Henry arrived back at the house for their midday meal-a scrumptious bowl of hot, sticky porridge-he had mucked out the stable stalls, milked a cow, been pecked by three separate hens, weeded a vegetable garden, and fallen into a trough.
Julia Quinn
I should say the leadership’s proposal in the Senate and the House are very unpopular. And when people realize it will raise taxes, raise their insurance premiums cost and explode the deficit, they think twice about it.
Rahm Emanuel
The fact was, Ford kept stumbling around. I didn’t want him in the White House. I wanted Carter in, and I had a forum of 20 million people watching.
Chevy Chase
I made enough money to buy a house. That’s crazy, but fame proved ephemeral.
Moon Unit Zappa
You never know how many friends you have until you rent a house on the beach.
Jim Steinman
The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Adolf Loos
Technology is usually fairly neutral. It’s like a hammer, which can be used to build a house or to destroy someone’s home. The hammer doesn’t care. It is almost always up to us to determine whether the technology is good or bad.
Noam Chomsky
The comfortable people in tight houses felt pity at first, and then distaste, and finally hatred for the migrant people.
John Steinbeck
If Thy dear home be fuller, Lord, For that a little emptier. My house on earth, what rich rewards. That guerdon were.
Amy Carmichael
A tragedy is a tragedy, and at the bottom, all tragedies are stupid. Give me a choice and I’ll take A Midsummer Night’s Dream over Hamlet every time. Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down, but it takes a genius to make people laugh.
Stephen King
I didn’t know my dad for a long time. My dad was on drugs and my dad was at the VA Hospital, my dad was off in his own world selling drugs or using them or there would be crack heads in the house or whatever it would be.
Shia LaBeouf
Such is the condition of organic nature! whose first law might be expressed in the words ‘Eat or be eaten!’ and which would seem to be one great slaughter-house, one universal scene of rapacity and injustice!
Erasmus Darwin
The first American insurance company was the Friendly Society for the Mutual Insurance of Houses Against Fire, founded in Charles Town in South Carolina, in 1735.
Andrew Tobias
The ideas of people in general are not raised higher than the roofs of the houses. All their interests extend over the earth’s surface in a layer of that thickness. The meeting-house steeple reaches out of their sphere.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Steve Bannon is the biggest threat to democracy that we’ve faced since the Civil War, but in the Civil War the champion of democracy was in the White House. So, even then, we were probably in less danger as a country than we are right now.
Van Jones
There is a house in New Orleans they call the Rising Sun, and it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy and God I know I’m one.
Bob Dylan
Good food and a warm kitchen are what makes a house a home.
Rachael Ray
She bent over me again. Blood began to move around in me, like a prospective tenant looking over a house.
Raymond Chandler
Keeping Crooked Hillary Clinton out of the White House!
Donald Trump
South Carolina put George H.W. Bush into the White House. But George W. Bush into the White House and sent Jeb Bush back to Miami.
Chuck Todd
As a member of the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, I am a firm believer in the American space program.
Randy Forbes
I want to see a Jew in the White house.
Kinky Friedman
Denna is a wild thing,” I explained. “Like a hind or a summer storm. If a storm blows down your house, or breaks a tree, you don’t say the storm was mean. It was cruel. It acted according to its nature and something unfortunately was hurt. The same is true of Denna.
Patrick Rothfuss
The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state’s sovereignty.
Bill McCollum
If past behavior is any indication, we’re in a lot of trouble with Hillary Clinton in the White House, as well, who has promised to start a no-fly zone in Syria, which amounts to a declaration of war against Russia.
Jill Stein
Obviously, David [Shore] probably has pressure because House was such an amazing show. But I try not to go into these jobs, thinking that I have to live up to people’s expectations.
Dean Winters
My father’s a musician and my mother’s a singer. My dad’s originally from Brooklyn and he was a Latin percussionist so I’ve always had instruments around the house. He used to have a show like a 1950s rock and roll show with Little Richard music. They would do doo-wop songs and stuff like that.
Bruno Mars
The measure of your quality as a public person, as a citizen, is the gap between what you do and what you say.
Ramsey Clark
I write pop songs. But I think it is sprinkled with a lot of counter-culture references. It ranged from rap to hip hop to trip hop, house, drum and bass, and experimental and improv and jazz.
Nelly Furtado
How often the Presidency has simply meant that a man shall be abused, distrusted, and worked to death while he is filling the great office, and that he should drop into unmerited oblivion when he has left the White House.
M. E. W. Sherwood
Her only thought was of getting away, as if she were carrying a live grenade from inside the house, so that when it exploded, it would destroy just herself.
Jennifer Egan
I think everybody is covering their [posteriors] with the Enron scandal and it was very convenient that Sept. 11 came along to deflect the fact that they should never have been in the White House in the first place. What happened in the election was completely corrupt.
Sandra Bernhard
If folly were griefe every house would weepe.
[If folly were grief, every house would weep.]
George Herbert
Beginning ‘Beloved’ with numerals rather than spelled out numbers, it was my intention to give the house an identity separate from the street or even the city.
Toni Morrison
Jump to the day we’ll all be dead and none of this will matter. Jump to the day another house will stand here and the people living there won’t know we ever happened.
Chuck Palahniuk
Mine is not a religion of the prison-house. It has room for the least among God’s creation.
Mahatma Gandhi
I think it is not only important that people go to the Anne Frank House to see the secret annex, but also that they are helped to realise that people are also persecuted today because of their race, religion or political convictions.
Otto Frank
I do love my Gucci slides. I wear them inside. I’m like an old Russian man who wears slides in his house.
Yung Lean
In our house we don’t use words like “despise” and ‘hate,’ we say “strongly dislike.”
Madonna Ciccone
Revolution? Unscrew the flag-staff, wrap the bunting in the oil covers, and put the thing in the clothes-chest. Let the old lady bring you your house-slippers and untie your fiery red necktie. You always make revolutions with your mugs, your republic–nothing but an industrial accident.
Alfred Doblin
Josh, my question to you is why you ran against a Republican and spent $100,000, wasted $100,000, that could have been spent on the west side of the state getting us a majority in the House of Representatives, especially since, at least in two of those swing districts we probably could win with that $100,00
Matt Shea
Many Democrats are in a reflective mood . They lost the White House this year [2016], which would not matter as much as it does, except they also failed to take back the Senate, remain out of power in the House and are out of power in most states.
Steve Inskeep
When I was a kid, we sat around the house. If I got bored, I’d have to figure out something to do.
Ben Falcone
When most people see the word “radical,” they think that it must refer to something left wing. Some people also may think of it as referring to far right-wing marginal groups. But here we have a president of the United States [George W. Bush] at the center of power, sitting in the White House, who is a radical.
Sidney Blumenthal
It’s good to remember the unburied dead and the uncollected rubbish. Most of it can now be seen on the Labour benches in the House of Commons.
Norman Tebbit
I was 8 years old when I went across the street from my house to a fair, and they always had a used book sale. For a quarter I bought a book called ‘Come On Seabiscuit.’ I loved that book. It stayed with me all those years
Laura Hillenbrand
My father never missed a drink in his life. Or a joint. Or a party. Or a chance to get laid. He also never missed a day of work, or a house payment, or a car payment. I never went hungry, although he did a couple of times so I wouldn’t.
Christopher Titus
Eric Peters’ music is at the top of what gets played around my house, in my car and while I am running. В I am a big fan. В He writes incredibly honest and poetic lyrics coupled with memorable pop melodies and I can think of no better combination.
Jill Phillips
There is nowhere in the world where sleep is so deep as in the libraries of the House of Commons.
Henry Channon
Remember, this thing is small. It’s not like the wolfships. It’ll ride over the waves, not crash through them. So we’re safe as houses.” He wasn’t sure about the last two statements, but they seemed logical to him.
John Flanagan
I would like to run for the mayor of the city of Chicago. That has always been an aspiration of mine even when I was in the House of Representatives.
Rahm Emanuel
Sleep is not, death is not; Who seem to die Live. House you were born in, Friends of your spring-time, old man and young maid, Day’s toil and it’s guerdon, They are all vanishing, Fleeing to fables, Cannot be moored
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her get within 10 miles of the White House again.
Chris Christie
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house?
Patrick Henry
Make the movies you want to make in Europe is much easier. Of course, you don’t have all the money you need, and if you go over budget, then you have to find the money, or you sell your house or something. But you have much more freedom.
The law says you cannot touch, but I see a lot of lawbreakers up in this house.
Matthew McConaughey
I’ll see a celadon green room in an 18th century New Hampshire house and just fall in love. Colors stay in my head.
Barbra Streisand
We do not need to burn down the house to kill the rats
Herbert Hoover
There is no normality in life. Having two houses means that we can get out of each other’s hair – which, let’s face it, we’ve both got a lot of.
Helena Bonham Carter
One reason that might motivate a worker to accept a riskier job at higher pay, for example, would be that doing so would enable him to bid more effectively for a house in a better school district. But if other workers did likewise, none would achieve the goal they were striving for.
Robert H. Frank
I would love to take an old space and restore it to exactly the way I want it. Like an old factory, just something with great bones and lots of character. I’d take an old house and flip it into something very modern inside, or the other way around.
Jason Wu
I connect with techno way more than house. I find it frustrating people call me a house artist because I think my music in general is more in the tradition of techno. House is celebratory and extroverted. I don’t connect with that sentiment.
Galcher Lustwerk
Oh, its big enough,” he said patronizingly, “but somehow I was expecting…you know.” He gestured with his hands, indicating something roughly the size of a house cat. “It’s the Mortal Cup, Jace, not the Mortal Toilet Bowl,” said Isabelle. -Jace & Isabelle, pg.349-
Cassandra Clare
If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.
Gaston Bachelard
Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse had signed a lease on a five-room apartment in a geometric white house on First Avenue when they received word, from a woman named Mrs. Cortez, that a four-room apartment in the Bramford had become available.
Ira Levin
The only time I’ve ever taken out a loan is for the building work I had done at our house and I did that by extending the mortgage.
Andrea McLean
Couture was only for rich people. Givenchy was for rich people. A bag cost 5,000 euro; a coat cost 10,000 euro. In the beginning, I couldn’t react. I was just working like a machine, because I wanted to make the house happy.
Riccardo Tisci
If the nails are weak, your house will collapse. If your verbs are weak and your syntax is rickety, your sentences will fall apart.
William Zinsser
To go to the White House is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In fact, the building is not that big.
Hugh Bonneville
If a given combination of trees, mountains, water, and houses, say a landscape, is beautiful, it is not so by itself, but because of me, of my favor, of the idea or feeling I attach to it.
Charles Baudelaire
I had cars, houses, jewels, furs, and a husband who loved me, and a career I was happy with. But I found fulfillment in my relationship with Christ.
Gloria Gaynor
When I was 11, I realised that I did not have to live the life my mother had: school, marriage, children, apartment, summer house.
Maj Sjowall
The impact of the downturn is starting to feel very real. House prices and the housing market have been taking the knock for some time and that’s affecting people.
Lucy Powell
I think it was somewhere around age 3 when I fell down the stairs at my house, and I got up and did a Jerry Lewis impression and got a big laugh. And I thought, “Oooh, I like that. I think I need to do this for a living!”
Brent Spiner
To newspapers and publishing houses I urge the use of fact over fiction, freedom of the press, and responsibility at all times.
Joely Richardson
When I was born, some of our relatives came to our house and told my mother, ‘Don’t worry, next time you will have a son.’
Malala Yousafzai
Set the goal to harvest what’s in you rather than having a car, house or a relationship.
T. D. Jakes
I love paint. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
David Lynch
I strongly support the bipartisan immigration measure previously passed by the Senate, and when I served in Congress I was proud to have helped introduce the House version of the bill. I also strongly support the DREAM Act.
Brad Schneider
White House operatives went to great lengths to show Obama shifting focus from wars abroad to domestic issues at home.
Ron Fournier
We’ve got to stop crying and start sweating, stop talking and start walking, stop cursing and start praying. The strength we need will not come from the White House, but from every house in America.
Jimmy Carter
I grew up in a village of 12 houses. We had a well and a cow.
Olesya Rulin
For I cannot think that GOD Almighty ever made them [women] so delicate, so glorious creatures; and furnished them with such charms, so agreeable and so delightful to mankind; with souls capable of the same accomplishments with men: and all, to be only Stewards of our Houses, Cooks, and Slaves.
Daniel Defoe
Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.
Eliel Saarinen
The house had a name. The Banana House. It was carved onto a piece of sandstone above the front door. It made no sense to anyone.
Hilary McKay
Electing clean-energy leaders into the Senate, the House, and the Oval Office – and getting it done in the next few years – is the only real solution to climate stabilization at acceptable levels.
Eban Goodstein
You couldn’t even prove the White House staff sane beyond a reasonable doubt. When I was born I was so surprised I didn’t talk for a year and a half. I am not part of the problem. I am a Republican.
Dan Quayle
I personally regard all of the houses of the Lord as the work of Jehovah, initiated by him, built by him, designed by him, and dedicated to him and his program.
Spencer W. Kimball
The only opportunity you will ever have to live by faith is in the circumstances you are provided this very day: this house you live in, this family you find yourself in, this job you have been given, the weather conditions that prevail at the …moment.
Eugene H. Peterson
Nothin’ wrong with havin’ a cat in the house. They can see what most people can’t, like the folks in the Otherworld when they cross back over – the good ones and the bad. And they get rid a mice.
Kami Garcia
Maxine Waters is a Democrat from California in her 13th term. She is a former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee. She is among the six-dozen Democratic lawmakers who boycotted Donald’s Trump inauguration. She did participate in the women’s march.
Michel Martin
In big houses in which things are done properly, there is always the religious element. The diurnal cycle is observed with more feeling when there are servants to do the work.
Elizabeth Bowen
The house is made up of the spirits of our ancestors. Did you think they would lie idly by while we were under attack?” ‘Cuz, yeah, didn’t everybody’s ancestors rise up and destroy enemies.
Christine Feehan
There is an old American saying ‘He who lives in a glass house should not try to kill two birds with one stone.
Vladimir Nabokov
I write pretty much anywhere – on planes, in hotel rooms, anywhere in my house.
Jeffery Deaver
House prices just soared beyond – beyond reason in many places and they got financed in silly ways, and people lied about loans, all kinds of accesses entered into it. But that is what – that is the single biggest cause of why we’re here.
Warren Buffett
A house should look lived in, and I consider it clean as long as I don’t stick to it and it doesn’t give me cholera.
Jenny Lawson
Tragically, the White House Task Force on Disadvantaged Youth reported that one-quarter of our young people are at serious risk of not achieving productive adulthood.
Ruben Hinojosa
The older I got, the more apparent it became that my mother was losing control over me. She fought back fiercely with black moods, silent treatments and martyrdom. And, of course, all she did was run my ass out of the house even quicker. The pressure was unbearable.
George Carlin
Nudge threw her arms around my neck. ‘I love you Max! I love all of us too!’ Yeah, me too,’ Said the Gasman. ‘I don’t care if we have our house, or a cliff ledge, or a cardboard box. Home is wherever we all are, together.
James Patterson
I am Cersei of House Lannister, a lion of the Rock, the rightful queen of these Seven Kingdoms, trueborn daughter of Tywin Lannister. And hair grows back.
George R. R. Martin
It’s easy to say no, I’m not going to do that. I’m not leaving the house.
William Shatner
My job is to ensure the sanctity of this House. Ensuring the sanity of its Master seemed like a good start.
Chloe Neill
Maggie, we’re through with lies and liars in this house. Lock the door.
Tennessee Williams
I gave away two dogs years ago because I felt guilty at not being able to give them the time and attention they deserved. I now regularly feed an army of squirrels and wild birds around our house.
Mike Farrell
In my room I’d barely closed my eyes when the blonde from the movie house came along and sang her whole song of sorrow just for me. I helped her put me to sleep, so to speak, and succeeded pretty well… I wasn’t entirely alone… It’s not possible to sleep alone.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine
It was very hard for me to put my life on paper. It was a very intimate process, very psychological, but at the same time liberating. It was like cleaning the closet, like cleaning the house… It was very refreshing.
I know what’s best for the President. I put him in the White house. He does well when he listens to me and poorly when he does not.
Florence Harding
Is it harder having kids and working? It definitely is, but the payoff is you get to go home to your kids, and it all balances out. And I know I’m a better mother when I’m engaged in something outside of the house.
Edie Falco
People that marry can never part, but must go and keep house together. People that dance only stand opposite each other in a long room for half an hour.
Jane Austen
My dad worked – f – k if I know – seven jobs? He painted a house. He would deliver toilets. He drove a cab, delivered pizzas. Whatever he could do, he did.
Mila Kunis
I was protected behind the walls of my house, the walls of the mosque and later, walls of my school. I didn’t know that I was Palestinian. I knew that I was a girl, but the identity issues came later when I was 12 or 13 – then, they came in a very strong way.
Rula Jebreal
I get obsessed with decorations and decorating the house. I keep it tasteful outside, but when you get inside it is a bit like Blackpool illuminations, I go bonkers!
Johnny Vegas
A composer is not only an architect but also an inventor, and he should not build houses in which he cannot live.
Igor Stravinsky
There is virtue in country houses, in gardens and orchards, in fields, streams and groves, in rustic recreations and plain manners, that neither cities nor universities enjoy.
Amos Bronson Alcott
Yet in this my stars were not Mercury as morning star in the angle of the seventh house, in quartile with Mars, but they were Copernicus, they were Tycho Brahe, without whose books of observations everything which has now been brought by me into the brightest daylight would lie buried in darkness.
Johannes Kepler
As a result of the sacred ordinances performed in the holy house of God, no light need be permanently extinguished, no voice permanently stilled, no place in our heart permanently left vacant.
Thomas S. Monson
The White House is a strange place.
Marlin Fitzwater
I tell myself I use art to promote dissent, but maybe I am just using dissent to promote my art. I plead not guilty to selling out. But I plead it from a bigger house than I used to live in.
My daughter is just as obsessed with playing in my makeup as everyone’s daughter is. She paints our walls and herself and clothes and me. So I have to do makeup in 30 seconds or my whole house is covered in my makeup, because she’ll just take it and run.
Blake Lively
When I was growing up, there were two things that were unpopular in my house. One was me, and the other was my guitar.
Bruce Springsteen
You can look forward with hope, because one day there will be no more separation, no more scars, and no more suffering in My Fathers House. It’s the home of your dreams!
Anne Graham Lotz
Whenever you have to come to my house and convince me to leave my home and play football, deep down in my heart I really don’t want to play, but I really don’t want to let you down.
Deion Sanders
Since I came to the White House, I got two hearing aids, a colon operation, skin cancer, a prostate operation, and I was shot. The damn thing is, I’ve never felt better in my life.
Ronald Reagan
Six million Jews died in concentration camps, but six billion broiler chickens will die this year in slaughter houses.
Ingrid Newkirk
Heaven lies about us in our infancy! Shades of the prison-house begin to close upon the growing boy.
William Wordsworth
The body is the soul’s house. Shouldn’t we therefore take care of our house so that it doesn’t fall into ruin?
The court case against me was a dictate out of the White House. Richard Nixon instructed the Justice Department to prosecute pornography to the fullest extent. Now, at the same time, Watergate was going on, so I think he was trying to defer the press or take attention away from his own personal problems.
Harry Reems
While fathers are pleasant figureheads, there is a special bond between children and their mothers. ‘Do you help your mother clean up the house?’ I asked one girl of seven. ‘No,’ she sweetly replied, ‘I help make the mess.’ It’s a dirty job but somebody’s got to do it.
Bill Cosby
I was the chairman of the House Budget Committee and one of the chief architects the last time we balanced a budget, and it was the first time we had done it since man walked on the moon.
John Kasich
With all of their benefits, and there are many, one of the things I regret about e-books is that they have taken away the necessity of trawling foreign bookshops or the shelves of holiday houses to find something to read. I’ve come across gems and stinkers that way, and both can be fun.
J. K. Rowling
I felt quite at home, / As if it were mine sleeping lazily / In this house of fresh air.
Matsuo Basho
Suburbia is the insidious cartoon of the country house in a cartoon of the country.
James Howard Kunstler
I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.
Robert Frost
We are used to cleaning the outside house, but the most important house to clean is yourself – your own house – which we never do.
Marina Abramovic
All virtuous women, like tortoises, carry their house on their heads, and their chappel in their heart, and their danger in their eye, and their souls in their hands, and God in all their actions.
Jeremy Taylor
My husband is from Hawaii and his father who was also born in Hawaii was a teenager when Pearl Harbor happened, right before church and he ran up and got on the roof of his grandfather’s house and watched the planes go over.
Sigourney Weaver
I’m a father. It isn’t just my life any more. I don’t want my kid finding bottles in the house or seeing his father completely smashed.
Billie Joe Armstrong
Let us be honest: most of us rather like our cats to have a streak of wickedness. I should not feel quite easy in the company of any cat that walked around the house with a saintly expression.
Beverley Nichols
The house built on the sand may oftentimes be built higher, have more fair parapets and battlements, windows and ornaments, than that which is built upon the rock; yet all gifts and privileges equal not one grace.
John Owen
White House and State Department foreign-policy experts are overwhelmingly directed towards military and diplomatic issues, not development issues.
Jeffrey Sachs
It’s kind of hard to balance school and work sometimes. But sometimes, like, if I’m going to the White House and I’m in there doing a tour and stuff, that’s like school.
Justin Bieber
Any time you win you’re going to be happy. But any time it’s a great divisional opponent, when it’s a usual dog fight, to come out on top at their house is a really good feeling.
Aaron Donald
A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa.
Mark Zuckerberg
My eleven year old daughter mopes around the house all day waiting for her breasts to grow.
Bill Cosby
… where Solomon says that ‘Wisdom has built herself a house’ (Prov. 9:1), he refers darkly in these words to the preparation of the flesh of the Lord: for the true Wisdom did not dwell in another’s building, but built for Itself that dwelling-place from the body of the Virgin.
Gregory of Nyssa
He snarled. I showed him my teeth. A rolled-up newspaper landed on my head and then on Jim’s. “None of that in my house!” Oh my gods. The alpha of Clan Cat just got smacked with a rolled-up newspaper.
Ilona Andrews
What will your children remember? We can change the world inside our own houses. Take the gift of this moment and make something beautiful of it. Few worthwhile experiences just happen; memories are made on purpose.
Gloria Gaither
Those of us of a certain age grew up expecting that by now we would have Rosie the Robot from ‘The Jetsons’ in our house. And all we’ve got is a Roomba.
Juan Enriquez
Once, she made a boy come out of his house and kiss her under the streetlight. It was her first kiss. She thinks it was probably his, too. She never told him and she never, ever will.
Holly Black
I was born in Joliet, Illinois. It was totally Midwestern – small, little house, two great parents, and a sister and a beagle.
Paula Pell
I’m the minority in my house sometimes. My wife is Swedish, and we go to Sweden and everyone is rattling off in Swedish. It’s like, ‘OK, I can just read a book.’
Will Ferrell
In a rough way the short story writer is to the novelist as a cabinetmaker is to a house carpenter.
Annie Proulx
I’m very stodgy. I’m always looking at old photos of California and Los Angeles, knowing that what I’m looking at is now full of houses. There used to be vacant lots in Los Angeles, now all taken up by three-storey boxes – it’s all getting infilled.
Edward Ruscha
I love hiking in the hills not far from my house. I’m invested in my hikes. Sometimes kids go up there and spray-paint over the signs; I’ve found a biodegradable paint cleaner, and I’ll scrub the signs so they’re nice and clean.
Nathan Fillion
The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can’t help it – can’t help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.
Marguerite Duras
The pool was but a stone’s throw from the house, and I arrived there in a few minutes, only to find a boy disturbing the water by dredging it with a worm. Him I lured away with a cake of chocolate. . . . Every day I see the head of the largest trout I ever hooked, but did not land.
Theodore Gordon
We’re living in a time when parenting is not at all mirroring the way I was parented. For me, I just followed my parents around on their errands; when they were busy on the phone, I was quiet. It’s a different kettle of fish these days: They run the house, and you listen to their music, and you go to their appointments.
Edie Falco
There is no more striking illustration of the immobility of British institutions than the House of Commons.
H. H. Asquith
So much value has been lost in the housing market that people are now buying. If there’s any activity in the housing market, it’s because values have plummeted to such depths that the 47% can now afford to live in a government-purchased house, or something like that.
Rush Limbaugh
People watch more documentaries too now. These movies that would normally be shown in these little art houses, and unless you walked by the theater, or happened to read that tiny zine that contained the info for it, or went to a film festival, you might miss it.
Rosario Dawson
I like to deal with things I heard about, … People are always getting their house broken into around the holidays. That’s when the crime rate goes up.
Ice Cube
I was just kind of sour with the sport. I didn’t want anything to do with it. I went into a period of excessive partying and doing anything that wasn’t figure skating, really. I went and built a house with my brother. I shut the whole world out and shut everything down.
Scott Moir
Faith is like private capital, stored in one’s own house. It is like a public savings bank or loan office, from which individuals receive assistance in their days of need; but here the creditor quietly takes his interest for himself.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If there is on earth a house with many mansions, it is the house of words.
E. M. Forster
As an editor, I read Charlotte Rogan’s amazing debut novel, ‘The Lifeboat,’ when it was still in manuscript. I read it in one night, and I really wanted my company to publish it, but we lost it to another house. It’s such a wonderful combination of beautiful writing and suspenseful storytelling.
Karen Thompson Walker
We pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution, against this demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant. That demonic spirit is oppressing us.
Gordon Klingenschmitt
I remember being a kid and sleeping over at my friend’s house and staying up late and watching ‘Nosferatu.’ Vampire movies are supposed to be secret and bad. They should be rated R.
Ethan Hawke
There’s nothing ill can dwell in such a temple. If the ill spirit have so fair a house, Good things will strive to dwell with’t
William Shakespeare
If at age 10 I say there are monsters in the basement and they don’t believe it, I would have stayed in that house. My father would have said “Shut up and get to your room.” So I thought the only sanctioned tyranny in the world is parenthood and everybody goes “Yeah.” It’s a dictatorship – parenthood.
Guillermo del Toro
I lingered most about the fireplace, as the most vital part of the house.
Henry David Thoreau
President Trump is bringing a very candid – and direct type of leadership to the White House. And in conversations with leaders around the world, frankly, I think they all find it very refreshing.
Mike Pence
The gods tempt us. They offer us riches and sweet smelling women, tres leches, each milk sweeter than the one before. But you cannot beat the gods. The grander house and the bigger deal only mean more borrowed time, more risk. When you build your life on a house of cards, you never know when the joker will turn up.
Paul Levine
Ask a deeply religious Christian if he’d rather live next to a bearded Muslim that may or may not be plotting a terror attack, or an atheist that may or may not show him how to set up a wireless network in his house. On the scale of prejudice, atheists don’t seem so bad lately.
Scott Adams
What is a house but a bigger skin, and a neighborhood map but the world’s skin ever expanding?
Annie Dillard
I live a fairly simple life, and that didnt change much after I sold TechCrunch in 2010. I didnt buy a new house or even a new car. The one thing I did splurge on was a boat. Nothing too fancy or large.
Michael Arrington
In Vienna, when I was a year-and-a-half or two years-old. I remember it because I remember the little blue raincoat I used to wear, and how the buttons felt. I liked to walk on the street in front of our house when it was raining, and jump into all the puddles. That’s weird, but that’s my earliest memory.
Boris Kodjoe
A solitary maple on a woodside flames in single scarlet, recalls nothing so much as the daughter of a noble house dressed for a fancy ball, with the whole family gathered around to admire her before she goes.
Henry James
Any man who does not like dogs and want them about does not deserve to be in the White House.
Calvin Coolidge
I’m living out a childhood fantasy. Our house is in a historic district of a small town that I used to read about in storybooks
Patty Duke
Pulver’s skills as a post-Beat visionary are in rare form. A House of Hollow Wounds is a thrilling foray into the dark frontier of the weird.
Laird Barron
I like old people when they have aged well. And old houses with an accumulation of sweet honest living in them are good. And the timelessness that only the passing of Time itself can give to objects both inside and outside the spirit is a continuing reassurance.
M. F. K. Fisher
The recycling in my house was imposed by my kids.
Antonio Banderas
Britain is a parliamentary democracy. Power rests in Parliament, in the House of Commons, and the government – the executive – has to seek the consent of MPs for its legislation.
Caroline Lucas
Lives the man that can figure a naked Duke of Windlestraw addressing a naked House of Lords?
Thomas Carlyle
These are the beautiful people, who, befitting their rank as gods and goddesses of a powerful modern mythology, lead beautiful lives in beautiful houses, attired in beautiful clothes and, ostensibly, thinking only beautiful thoughts.
Helen Lawrenson
I sing around the house, in the shower
Aaron Neville
I can’t tell you how irritating it is to be an atheist in a haunted house.
Matthew Tobin Anderson
In our house, there was a lot of yelling. It was everyone walking in on each other and very few boundaries.
Adam F. Goldberg
More and more, I feel the need for a house and a garden.
Marie Curie
They crested a rise, and there it was, in the hollow between rolling hills—a low, square building, ghostly gray in the moonlight. “Is that it?” asked Hamilton. “It probably isn’t the local opera house,” groaned Ian.
Gordon Korman
Much of the character of everyman may be read in his house.
John Ruskin
I think for most guys, when we grow up we’re trying to establish what being a man means to us and so I think it’s pretty helpful and beneficial when there’s a role model in the house.
Jonathan McReynolds
I will be your friend,’ I said. ‘I will go home to my mother’s house the way I did when I skinned my knees as a little girl. I’ll go and let myself be consoled by my roses, my palm trees, my enormous volcanoes in San Salvador. When you are old, maybe you’ll come and see me someday.
Consuelo de Saint-ExupГ©ry
Something wild can happen to anybody and I caution anybody that walks out on the street, just settle your accounts before you leave the house every day.
Bill Murray
I was a little different. I still say I’m a little different, because success to me is not having the most money, or having the biggest car or the biggest house.
Herschel Walker
I ascribe to Mark Twain’s theory that the last person who should be President is the one who wants it the most. The one who should be picked is the one who should be dragged kicking and screaming into the White House.
Bill Hicks
A friend came over to the house
a few days ago and read one of my poems.
He came back today and asked to read the
same poem over again. After he finished
reading it, he said, It makes me want to write poetry.
Richard Brautigan
I really like looking at other people’s book collections when I’m at someone’s house. I think it is an amazing cross section of a person’s brain and lifestyle. I think everyone should photograph their book spines and make a website. Seriously.
Phil Elvrum
Sometimes he spent hours together in the great libraries of Paris, those catacombs of departed authors, rummaging among their hoards of dusty and obsolete works in quest of food for his unhealthy appetite. He was, in a manner, a literary ghoul, feeding in the charnel-house of decayed literature.
Washington Irving
When you have a brilliant sun, which is a source of vision, the light from the sun shines through every window of the house, and the brightness of its light inspires you to open all the curtains. In the vision of the Great Eastern Sun, no human being is a lost cause.
Chogyam Trungpa
With horns and a full rhythm section, the drums always looked like the best seat in the house.
Levon Helm
Divine right went out with the American Revolution and doesn’t belong to the White House aides. What meat do they eat that makes them grow so great?
Sam Ervin
If my house has collapsed at one blow, that is because it was a house of cards. The faith which ‘took these things into account’ was not faith but imagination.
C. S. Lewis
A massive power outage in Washington, D.C., today affected a number of federal buildings, including the White House. When asked when they could restore power to the White House, officials said, ‘2016?’
Jimmy Fallon
The upshot is that to send its children to a school of even average quality, a family must outbid half of other similar families who are pursuing the same goal. And that’s become dramatically more expensive because of the growth in median house size, which was in turn caused by higher spending at the top.
Bob Frank
Gambling houses are temples where the most sordid and turbulent passions contend; there no spectator can be indifferent. A card or a small square of ivory interests more than the loss of an empire, or the ruin of an unoffending group of infants, and their nearest relatives.
Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann
Public service does not necessarily mean service in the House of Commons, and public service is not synonymous with partisan political activity. It comes in a thousand colours, but the common denominator is: it’s not about me – it’s about we.
Michael Ignatieff
My favourite shows of the year are House of Cards, the Scandinavian versions of The Killing and The Bridge, and my guilty pleasure is everything MMA. Ultimate Fighter is amazing.
Ricky Gervais
I think I’ve been a great citizen.
O. J. Simpson
If my house was on fire, I can’t compromise about which part of the house I’m going to save. You save the whole house or it will all burn down. We either save this country or we do not.
Marco Rubio
Neil Young and Barry Friedman had stolen a Buffalo Springfield sign off the steamroller for Barrys house. They put it up. We all looked at it on the wall and a light went off. That’s how we came up with the name
Stephen Stills
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you in the United States House of Representatives. Together, we will continue fighting to protect our Texas conservative values and the preservation of the America we know and love for future generations to come.
Mike Conaway
For my very first movie, ‘Roger and Me,’ I made it as part of my deal with Warner Brothers that the four people that were evicted in that film, that Warner Brothers would house – would pay their mortgage or their rent for the next two years to give them a chance to get on their feet.
Michael Moore
What is… disturbing to me is that many of these pro-Israeli lawmakers sit on the House International Relations Committee despite the obvious conflict of interest that their emotional attachments to Israel cause… The Israeli occupation of all territories must end, including Congress.
Cynthia McKinney
I’m a middle-bracket person with a middle-bracket spouse / And we live together gaily in a middle-bracket house. / We’ve a fair-to-middlin’ family; we take the middle view; / So we’re manna sent from heaven to internal revenue.
Phyllis McGinley
For every time she shouted “Fire!” They only answered “Little liar!” And therefore when her aunt returned, Matilda, and the house, were burned.
Hilaire Belloc
To enjoy freedom … we have of course to control ourselves. We must not squander our powers, helplessly and ignorantly, squirting half the house in order to water a single rose.
Virginia Woolf
Now that doctors have stopped making house calls, lots of patients now have to die without their help.
Milton Berle
I reached Ghazipur three days ago. Here I am putting up in the house of Babu Satish Chandra Mukherji, a friend of my early age. The place is very pleasant. Close by flows the Ganga, but bathing there is troublesome, for there is no regular path, and it is hard work wading through sands.
Swami Vivekananda
I’m of the mind that life is a risk. Every time you leave your house it’s a risk, and I see no reason to go through life with my hands tied behind my back for any reason. I’d be foolish to let something stop me from doing what I love to do.
Thomas Jane
The dining room is a building; the bathroom is a building. If we scatter this single-program architecture inside of a domestic environment, we can link an interior urbanism in a way similar to a village or a township of tiny houses.
Jimenez Lai
Fang can’t stand to see trash & garbage lying around the house. He can’t stand the competition.
Phyllis Diller
You know how you either grow up in a Michael Jackson house or a Prince house? For me it was Michael Jackson. I could never decide whether I wanted to be Michael Jackson or marry him.
Amy Winehouse
We just bought this house. It’s too big. It’s like 400,000 square feet, or something. We got an indoor lake and ski slope in the house! It’s just too big.
Adam Sandler
After years in white theaters I dreaded working in colored houses. The noise, the stomping, whistling, and cheering that hadn’t annoyed me when I was young was now something I dreaded.
Ethel Waters
If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.
Henry David Thoreau
There’s a lot of stress involved when your house is underwater.
Scott McCallum
Steve Hadley is an interesting option as secretary of state because he is somebody that is, you know, familiar to power, served in the White House, and did not oppose Donald Trump the way a lot of the Republican foreign policy establishment did. But his name was not on that list, at least at the moment.
Susan Page
I’m going to do everything I can to get myself elected, but that’s not enough. I’m going to try to help move the Senate to be a Democratic majority. I’m going to try to help pick up House seats. I’m going to try to elect Democratic governors, Democratic legislators, and all the way down the line.
Hillary Clinton
In the very next election, the American people elected 63 new Republicans to the House of Representatives – the largest sweep of Congress for any party since 1948. Even liberal Massachusetts elected a Republican senator solely because of his vow to vote against Obamacare.
Ann Coulter
I believe that white frame house is worthy of more than a nod of nostalgia, because the values President Clinton learned there and in Hope formed the core of his political philosophy.
Mack McLarty
I felt it was my duty to praise all of God’s works with fervent enthusiasm. At the same time I killed flies in my house in a spirit of hatred, exasperation and contempt. My praise to God for all his works was dishonest, the act of killing the fly was honest.
Mark Twain
Meditation is a half-way house between thinking and contemplating.
Evelyn Underhill
I grew up with a lot of Hollywood films. Cozy farm houses, cowboys, nice flats in New York. Especially as a kid, those things have a huge impression on you.
Andrea Arnold
If you try to break into my house, you will be severely lacerated and possibly electrocuted, and I’m fine with that. Because if you’re breaking into my house, you’re on your own.
Paget Brewster
I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out.
Sarah Palin
What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?
Henry David Thoreau
Next time you pray any kind of prayer, whether it be for the resolution of healing, or for a house, or for a car, or for a husband, or for a family conflict, or for a solution to a problem, tell Him he can say yes or no. Because in the end, you’re a winner. Every time.
Bo Sanchez
The Daryls House thing has made me into a live musician even more than I ever was, and even in the way I record.
Daryl Hall
I dropped my hoe and ran into the house and started to write this poem, ‘End of Summer.’ It began as a celebration of wild geese. Eventually the geese flew out of the poem, but I like to think they left behind the sound of their beating wings.
Stanley Kunitz
Growing up in a house with six brothers and sisters is a lot like being on a tour bus. There’s not a whole lot of private space, so you figure out how to make it work.
Michael Timmins
A critic in my house sees some paintings. Greatly perturbed, he asks for my drawings. My drawings? Never! They are my letters, my secrets.
Paul Gauguin
Always discriminate-your body, your house, the people and the world are all absolutely unreal like a dream. Always think that the body is only an inert instrument. And the Atman within is your real nature.
Swami Vivekananda
Every house is a mad-house at some time or another.
Edith Wharton
Do you remember when we picketed the White House in 1965?
Barbara Gittings
The only critic is a full house.
Rudolf Nureyev
If it’s really so wonderful that both partners have to work to make a living to pay for their house, for health insurance, someone is obviously going to get the short end of the stick.
Eric Braeden
I know I looked skinnier in The House Bunny, but thanks to my diet of beer and doughnuts, I’m back to my fightin’ weight!’
Anna Faris
I mean, we’ve had Republican majorities in the House and even the Senate for a couple of years. How has that worked out, stopping [Barack] Obama, hmm? Seriously.
Rush Limbaugh
Apart from life, a strong constitution, and an abiding connection to the Thembu royal house, the only thing my father bestowed upon me at birth was a name, Rolihlahla.
Nelson Mandela
But inspiration? – That’s when you come home from abroad and are asked: Well, have you found inspiration? – and fortunately you haven’t. But the impressions sink in, of course, and may emerge later: None of us has invented the house; that was done many thousands of years ago.
Arne Jacobsen
If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm, then perhaps there are other things that our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society.
Sarah Palin
I have more faith in doing something creative for a cable station or something like Yahoo or Google or Amazon. What Netflix did with ‘House of Cards’ and David Fincher was brilliant. That is inspiring to me. I think there is more chance for creativity in animation, it just hasn’t happened there yet.
Henry Selick
Reporters are always supposed to be demanding more access and more transparency. So the day that there isn’t some friction between the White House press corps and the White House is the day that somebody in the press corps is not doing their job.
Josh Earnest
I think of Twitter as a messaging system that you didn’t know you needed until you had it. Think about when cell phones first started coming out. People said, “Why would I carry my phone around?” And now you’ll drive back to your house thirty miles if you forget your cell phone.
Biz Stone
NYU Film School was the way to learn about film, to be exposed to film, to go to repertory houses, to be exposed to New York and see films. I would go to the library and see one, two or three movies a day.
Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
Man is made of the wholly common, and custom is his nurse; woe then to them who lay irreverent hands on his old house-furniture, the dear inheritance from his forefathers: For time consecrates, and what is gray with age becomes religion.
Friedrich Schiller
As a child I had no toys; our house was bombed, but there were lots of bricks. Ruins are wonderful because they are the beginning of something new, you can do something with them.
Anselm Kiefer
Like a Passover Poet gliding from house to house and from trembling soul to trembling soul the wind scribbled sonnets of first time love and weeping haikus of last hours on earth.
For a house to be successful, the objects in it must communicate with one another, respond to and balance one another
Andree Putman
I haven’t got a car or a house. I’ve got a wife, but I didn’t pay for her! I spend all my money on my glorious wife. She’s here with a knife at my throat!
Mackenzie Crook
Wherever God erects a house of prayer
the Devil always builds a chapel there;
And ‘t will be found, upon examination,
the latter has the largest congregation.
Daniel Defoe
I was living in a house with five guys, eating their leftovers when they weren’t watching. I went from that to having $1-billion-plus on paper.
Jeffrey Skoll
Here’s the latest from the Pentagon — the generals are worried that the White House is spreading itself thin by trying to fight a war on two fronts; Afghanistan and Fox News.
Jay Leno
I wanted a NBA basketball gym at my house and that’s what I worked hard for and I was able to achieve that.
Terrell Owens
I live in a kind of gay bubble. I live in a gay house, I drive a gay car. I eat gay food.
Julian Clary
I have noticed that there is no dissatisfaction like that of the rich. Feed a man, clothe him, put him in a good house, and he will die of despair.
John Steinbeck
I’ve already bought another house in Tangier and the one in Deauville has been for sale for some time. As for Yves’s Saint Laurent apartment, it is being sold because he’s dead. But I won’t be furnishing my home from Ikea.
Pierre Berge
On a royal birthday every house must fly a flag, or the owner would be dragged to a police station and be fined twenty-five rubles.
Mary Antin
Poetry is certainly something more than good sense, but it must be good sense, at all events, just as a palace is more than a house, but it must be a house, at least.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
When the sun is shining, think of the time it won’t be, because even when you’re sitting in your house with the doors shut, misfortune can fall from above. Page 279
Lisa See
There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emtional, and a spiritual . Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.
Rumer Godden
We are one people with one family. We all live in the same house… and through books, through information, we must find a way to say to people that we must lay down the burden of hate. For hate is too heavy a burden to bear.
John Lewis
Are you crazy? Flirting with Eli Stock in front of Belissa Norwood, in Belissa Norwood’s house, while eating Belissa Norwood’s cupcakes?
Sarah Dessen
The men may be the head of the house, but the women are the neck and they can turn the head any way they want.
Lainie Kazan
I was at La Fenice opera house back in 1991 with friends, and we started talking about a conductor whom none of us liked. Somehow there was an escalation, and we started talking about how to kill him, where to kill him. This struck me as a good idea for a book.
Donna Leon
Look, I’m a member of the House of Lords and I’m the first to admit that I don’t understand how one gets new laws through.
Alan Sugar
Comfort comes into your house first as guest, then as a host, then finally as the master.
David Bowie
It is a bizarre thought that in this [U.S. 2008] presidential cycle we could have had a woman in the White House we might have a black man in the White House but if either of them had said they were atheists neither of them would have had a hope in hell.
Julian Barnes
Moving [to the White House], whatever stresses would be on my husband and me, we could handle; we are grown-ups. But it wouldn’t be until the day that my kids came home and said to me, “I like it here,” that I’d feel like I could breathe and know that we’re all going to be okay here.
Michelle Obama
It should be a law. Everybody should legally own a gun. In fact, if you’re caught outside your house without your gun, you get a ticket. And you get shot in the leg. Just to prove my point.
Christopher Titus
I live in a Spanish-style hillside home in Los Angeles, California. I paid $900,000 in 1995. It’s perhaps worth about $3m now. Thankfully, I paid off my mortgage before the crash because I could see it coming. I worried that I would be caught having to pay off a very high mortgage for a house I couldn’t sell.
Eric Idle
Designing a house is like doing a movie: Once you’re done, you want to say, ‘I hope you all enjoy it.’
Jennifer Aniston
But there was more, as there always is when the love goes. She was haunted, naturally. Otherwise what is the point, why leave your rickety house, and why this yo-yo world giving us things and yanking them back?
Daniel Handler
The name of my ailment was longing, and it was not cured till I finally went to the department store and counted out the money in small coins before the dismayed clerk. When I came to the house, I held up the instrument before the eyes of the astonished household.
William Christopher Handy
Each morning I face her window and pray that our love can be, cause that brownstone house where my baby lives is Mecca.
Gene Pitney
My parents were not poor, I mean we were a very average middle-class family of academics, but my grandfather happened to have built house literally next to one of Kolkata’s largest slum.
Abhijit Banerjee
A house is a compressed territory where our basic needs can be fulfilled close by and safely.
Yann Martel
I don’t like to work in an office. I like to work in my house, to be among my own thoughts. The idea is for an editor to let his artist alone, let them be themselves, let them exchange their own ideas and you’ll come up with something salable.
Jack Kirby
We in this House are role models. People all over the world watch us and study us. When we fall short, they lose hope. When we fail, they despair.
Newt Gingrich
The act of reading is a partnership. The author builds a house, but the reader makes it a home.
Jodi Picoult
Just the other day, it seems, the kids were running through the house, slamming doors, breaking glass, making noise. Time goes by so quickly. Sometimes everything seems so fleeting.
Perry Como
Divorce is a fire exit. When a house is burning, it doesn’t matter who set the fire. If there is no fire exit, everyone in the house will be burned!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Imagine yourself as a living house.
C. S. Lewis
The glass ceiling doesn’t apply when you’re building your own house
Heidi Roizen
but you were a fool to bring that pider into this house
Darren Shan
I am in favour of leaving people alone, however imperfect their polity may seem. It appears to me that you must not tell other nations how to set their house in order; nor must you compel them to be happy.
Patrick O’Brian
House of the Dead 2 I gave away. Alone in the Dark 2 I will also not do; even if the DVD movie made money. BloodRayne 2 in the Wild West is what I really want to do.
Uwe Boll
Gracie: You have an unusual house. Have you lived here long? Bobby Tom: A couple of years. I don’t much like it myself, but the architect is real proud of it. She calls it urban Stone Age with a Japanese Tahitian influence. I sort of just call it ugly.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
She had been sharing a house with him for a week, and he had not once flirted with her. He had worked with her, asked her opinion, slapped her on the knuckles figuratively speaking when she was on the wrong track, and acknowledged that she was right when she corrected him. Dammit, he had treated her like a human being.
Steig Larsson
My favorite brand I have ever artistically collaborated, entertained, and supported over the years is the huge house that Coco Chanel built: Chanel.
Theophilus London
[Andrew Jackson] was actually 70 years old when he left the White House
Ronald Reagan
And [now] I think I’ll probably write a lot about birds. My new house has a deck that wraps around my writing room; my writing room has many windows, and outside the windows I’ve hung bird feeders … for enticing different species. So I imagine I will be writing about that.
Julia Cameron
When I was knowingly misled but only learned that much later, that’s really when I started to become disillusioned at the White House.
Scott McClellan
I’m not the boss of my house. I don’t know how I lost it, I don’t know when I lost it, I don’t really think I ever had it. But I’ve seen the boss’s job…and I don’t want it!
Bill Cosby
Being the father of girls is a kind of illness, in its own way – since any guy who has tried to live in a house with a wife and two daughters is, without any doubt, going to go certifiably nuts.
Steve Schirripa
If you live in a good neighborhood, you drive home and there’s a bank. There’s grocery stores and big houses – but no motels. What that tells you psychologically is you protect your money and buy good things for your family to eat in your nice big house.
Stuff has become the enemy. There always seems to be more of it than I have storage in my house!
Rick Riordan
[Describing his house:] It is a library with living rooms attached.
Bernard Berenson
It is not doubted, and you know it, that Ireland and all those islands which have received the faith, belong to the Church of Rome; if you wish to enter that Island, to drive vice out of it, to cause law to be obeyed and St Peter’s Pence to be paid by every house, it will please us to assign it to you.
Pope Adrian IV
Like building a house, travel always costs more than you estimate.
Ilka Chase
For some people, the better route for finding like-minded parents is just to get out of your house with your baby and frequent baby-friendly places.
Carolyn Hax
Now if you went to someone’s house to look for them, you would be a psychopath.
Lena Dunham
I know your lives are busy. I know that you have much to do. But I make you a promise that if you will go to the house of the Lord, you will be blessed; life will be better for you.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Both Kennedy and Obama exuded a dash of glamour in their roles as commander-in-chief and became the darlings of Hollywood. As president, each brought to the White House a fashionable and accomplished First Lady, two adorable young children and scene-stealing pets.
Kitty Kelley
I eat about two meals a day vegan, is my rule of thumb. When I’m traveling, all bets are off, but I don’t cook meat in the house. I rarely cook eggs. I never use milk. But when I go out to eat for a special treat, I’ll have some meat. But I know, personally, that’s the best I’m ever going to do in my life.
Adam Conover
I have a good memory for early life. My visual memory is good about childhood and adolescence, and less good in the last 10 years. I could probably tell you less what happened in the last 10 years. I remember what houses looked like, sometimes they just pop into my head.
Jeffrey Eugenides
American politics is a struggle, not of men but of forces. The men become every year more and more creatures of force, massed about central power houses.
Henry Adams
Bluebell,” she said, remembering from Erotique. “Pretty name.” “I call Dmitri Dark Overlord.” “Shae,” Dmitri said and the female vampire rose at once to walk quickly into the house. “Now, pretty Bluebell” another languid stroke across her skin “tell the Overlord what you discovered.
Nalini Singh
In my house, it is always a scramble from paycheck to paycheck.
Tim Cahill
The men who start out with the notion that the world owes them a living generally find that the world pays its ‘debt’ in the penitentiary or the poor house.
William Graham Sumner
I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.
Coco Chanel
No matter what name we give it or how we judge it, a candidate’s character is central to political reporting because it is central to a citizen’s decision in voting.
Roger Mudd
If you put Sen. Kerry in the White House, I think you are going to see that another terrorist attack happen … and I don’t want to see another Sept. 11.
Bernard Kerik
A house does not need a wife any more than it needs a husband.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
I’ve never had the Lord say, ‘Jesse, I think that car is a little bit too nice.’ I’ve had vehicles and the Lord said, ‘Would you please go park that at your house. Don’t put that in front of my house. I don’t want people to think that I’m a poor God.’
Jesse Duplantis
He burst into the house and ate Grandma, an entirely valid course of action for a carnivore such as himself.
James Finn Garner
I met my new partner [in Indiana] and she asked if I wanted to move out of New York. I said yeah, and we got a house that’s way cheaper than renting a closet in New York.
Shaun Fleming
The proper form of economy must be observed in building houses for each and every class.
Marcus Vitruvius Pollio
I feel as if I am an ad for the sale of a haunted house: 18 rooms $37,000 I’m yours ghosts and all.
Richard Brautigan
Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living in better conditions.
In our town there was a Gestapo officer who loved to play chess. After the occupation began, he found out that my father was the chess master of the region, and so he had him to his house every night.
Bruno Schulz
The purpose of establishing different houses of legislation is to introduce the influence of different interests or different principles.
Thomas Jefferson
I never heard my mom say, “Not now, I’m busy.” But I did have extraordinary experiences that I’m very aware were extraordinary. I mean, I traveled Europe before I was 12 years old, had been to the White House numerous times. Andy Warhol photographed me; Michael Jackson called our house.
Tracee Ellis Ross
I live in the house bad reviews built.
Paul Stanley
I don’t think God is a gender. He presents himself as a father but he comes to us with the tenderness of a mother. In some of the parables, he is the housewife who cleans the house looking for the lost coin. So I think we can miss the point if we get too concerned about the gender of God.
Max Lucado
[Rock ‘n’ roll] is still a primitive form and there’s no way you can get away from that. It’s one of the primitive art forms and that’s why it’s good and that’s why it’s lasted…you know, it hasn’t become sophisticated and it’s not in the opera house.
Van Morrison
For whatever reason I just remembered being six years old and my parents leaving the house and trusting me to be alone. I had an older sister, I think she was supposed to babysit me but she immediately ran across the street to her friend’s house.
Kathleen Hanna
My house is small, but you are learned men And by your arguments can make a place Twenty foot broad as infinite as space.
Geoffrey Chaucer
The price of tapping water into every house is that no one values water any more.
John Fowles
A moderately honest man with a moderately faithful wife, moderate drinkers both, in a moderately healthy house: that is the true middle class unit.
George Bernard Shaw
This is a racist and imperialist war. The warmongers who stole the White House have hijacked a nation’s grief and turned it into a perpetual war on any non-white country they choose to describe as terrorist.
Woody Harrelson
I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.
Andrew Jackson
Mount Tamalpais became my house. For Cezanne, Sainte-Victoire was no longer a mountain. It was an absolute. It was painting.
Etel Adnan
I’m influenced by the music of the ’60s. It’s a mishmash of everything. To me, psychedelic can be all the way to a DJ. House music can be very psychedelic. ‘Flying Lotus’ is very psychedelic. Even though it’s urban and technological, it’s also mind-expanding, anything-can-go mishmash.
Anton Newcombe
Pfft, who wants to make a movie about a guy in a house?
Alex Pettyfer
