The most complex object in the known universe: brain, only uses 20 watts of power. It would require a nuclear power plant to energize a computer the size of a city block to mimic your brain, and your brain does it with just 20 watts. So if someone calls you a dim bulb, that’s a compliment.

Andy Serkis
No matter how daring or cautious you may choose to be, in the course of your life, you are bound to come into direct physical contact with what’s known as Evil. I mean here not a property of the gothic novel but, to say the least, a palpable social reality that you in no way can control.

Very few people can write in a crowd. This is a very solitary occupation. I have known people more talented than me who never made it. And the primary reason was always that they couldn’t stand to be alone for several hours a day. Any writer worth anything has mastered the art. The art of solitude.

Anne Frank
I have known Tarell Alvin McCraney for ten years but the involvement with Moonlight came more with Barry Jenkins, the director. He was a fan of the show I did called The Knick. He was also with Plan B Entertainment, who produced Selma. That is how I got involved.

“Filipino” is the Spanish side of our history. The islands were named after King Felipe, so we became known as Filipinos. It’s a brand, it’s a name. But we’re Malays. Before colonizers came to our shores, we were Malays. My praxis is about being Malay – the struggle of the Malays before we became Filipinos.

William Howard Taft
Senator Paul Sarbanes really was a big help to me. He was so well known and so well respected, and he said, “Give her a chance here.” And he showed me the ways of power and the corridors of power, [as did] Bob Byrd. [They] helped with [my] committee assignments.

Real music is what I consider to be uncorporatized music, the music that just happens. I feel like that’s not a very well-known thing.
Frank Fairfield
I am myself a dissenter from all known religions, and I hope that every kind of religious belief will die out.
Bertrand Russell
I’m afraid Dr. Mondrick chose an unfortunate publicity device. After all, the theory of human evolution is no longer front page news. Every known detail of the origin of mankind is extremely important to such a specialist as Dr. Mondrick, but it doesn’t interest the man in the street – not unless it’s dramatized.
Jack Williamson
I have always known that writing fiction had little effect on the world; that if it did, young men would not have gone to war after The Iliad.
Andre Dubus
I have been tagged mischievous since childhood and was known as a prankster.
Siddharth Shukla
My paintings are not about what is seen. They are about what is known forever in the mind.
Agnes Martin
I tend to be known for different things. I mean, there are a lot of comics or sci-fi fans out there who sort of think of me doing that kind of work, but there are just as many people who like the CD covers I’ve done, or the children’s books I’ve done. So different people like different things.
Dave McKean
Lincoln was known to have walked miles to borrow books, to get the most rudimentary form of education. So what do we do on his birthday? We close the schools!
Robert Orben
In a few generations you can breed a racehorse. The recipe for making a man like Delacroix is less well known.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
As the National Football League and other pro sports increasingly reckon with the early dementia, mental health issues, suicides and even criminal behavior of former players, the risk of what’s known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), is becoming clear.
Jeffrey Kluger
As with all knowledge, once you knew it, you couldn’t imagine how it was that you hadn’t known it before.
Margaret Atwood
It’s interesting. I’ve known quite a few good athletes that can’t begin to play a beat on the drum set. Most team sport is about the smooth fluidity of hand-eye coordination and physical grace, where drumming is much more about splitting all those things up.
Neil Peart
He who doubts, knows – knows as much as can be known.
Giacomo Leopardi
I love you Max,”Fang said…”God, Max I love you so much.” I know. I thought. I’ve always known
James Patterson
Love is selflessness and self-fullness; it can only be known deeply with an open, vulnerable heart.
Emily Saliers
We’ve been proud of the fact that we were known for our music first and it has been what makes us work harder
A champion of the workingman has never been known to die of overwork.
Robert Frost
My kids are not known, and I think that is very important. So far they have lived a normal life, and will continue to do so. I feel they should have the possibility to live a free life without the burden of fame I have created.
Michael Schumacher
If Mormonism is able to endure, unmodified, until it reaches the third and fourth generation, it is destined to become the greatest power the world has ever known.
Leo Tolstoy
Once a thing is known,it can’t be UNknown.
Chris Crutcher
Sometimes the truth is arrived at by adding all the little lies together and deducting them from the totality of what is known.
Terry Pratchett
I am no historian, but Hungary is a country which has never known democracy – and by that, I mean not a democratic political system, but an organic process which has mobilised the entire country’s society. In the case of Hungary, this development was blocked by the growth of the Ottoman empire in the 16th century.
Imre Kertesz
There is a park that is known 4 the face it attracts colorful people whose hair On 1 side is swept back The smile on their faces It speaks of profound inner peace Ask where they’re going They’ll tell U nowhere They’ve taken a lifetime lease On Paisley Park.
I believe I’m a better authority than anybody else in America on my own wife. I have never known a person with a stronger sense of right and wrong in my life ever.
William J. Clinton
I have always known what I wanted, and that was beauty… in every form.
Joan Crawford
Without seeking, truth cannot be known at all. It can neither be declared from pulpits, nor set down in articles, nor in any wise prepared and sold in packages ready for use. Truth must be ground for every man by itself out of it such, with such help as he can get, indeed, but not without stern labor of his own.
John Ruskin
For me, when you’re casting known talent, you’re not just casting their performances. You’re casting the public’s relationship with them, their public images to a degree.
Jen McGowan
I was plunged into what was known as the debutante social whirl. This was one of the ways fathers justified their own hard work and sacrifices.
Gene Tierney
Here then is the truth about the Truth; the Truth is not bridge, sturdy to every step, a marvel of bound planks and supports from the known into the unknown, but a surging sea of smashed wood, flotsam and drowning sailors.
Julian Assange
Everyone knows nowadays that people ‘have complexes’. What is not so well known, though far more important theoretically, is that complexes can have us.
Carl Jung
When the atheist is told that God is unknowable, he may interpret this claim in one of two ways. He may suppose, first, that the theist has acquired knowledge of a being that, by his own admission, cannot possibly be known; or, second, he may assume that the theist simply does not know what he is talking about.
George H. Smith
It is better to be the builder of our own name than to be indebted by descent for the proudest gifts known to the books of heraldry.
Hosea Ballou
Fox News has learned some United States investigators believe that there are Israelis again very much engaged in spying in and on the United States, who may have known things they didn’t tell us before September 11, 2001.
Brit Hume
If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendency; if the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will.
Daniel Webster
What is a career, actually? Nobody can destroy my career. Only I can destroy my career, if I am a bad conductor. I’ve gone to lesser known orchestras in Scotland and Sweden, Detroit, but I have enjoyed the places I’ve been, and had success. I like the close community relations, and to solve problems.
Neeme Jarvi
The physicists have known sin; and this is a knowledge which they cannot lose.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
It is well known that, when two authors meet, they at once start talking about money-like everyone else.
V. S. Pritchett
For too long, Americans have been plagued by unwanted and unlawful robocalls. For too long, they’ve found unauthorized charges and changes to their phone service on their bills – practices commonly known as ‘slamming’ and ‘cramming.’ And for too long, some phone calls that are placed to rural residents have been dropped.
Ajit Pai
It’s well known there’s always two sides, if no more.
George Eliot
Tell the truth. Say what is happening. Allow what is, and allow it to be known. Bring your children up in a home that is clean and clear and honest. There is no greater legacy you can give them.
Vimala McClure
She freshens me up above a bit. Who’d ha thought that face – as bright and as strong as the angel I dream of – could have known the sorrow she speaks on? I wonder how she’ll sin. All on us must sing.
Elizabeth Gaskell
The silence wasn’t like the ones I’d known lately, though: it wasn’t empty as much as chosen. There’s a entirely different feel to quiet when you’re with some-one else, and at any moment it could be broken. Like the difference between a pause and an ending.
Sarah Dessen
Wolves? I should have known. Of course you have wolves. Doesn’t everybody?” She snapped her fingers. “The gun, Lucian. Hand it over. I’ve decided I have to shoot you after all. It’s the only way to preserve my sanity.
Christine Feehan
The line between what is known scientifically and what has to be assumed in order to support knowledge is impossible to draw. Memory itself is an internal rumour.
George Santayana
You can be known as Val or Babycakes.” His gaze darkened. “My name is Valerius and I will not answer to Val.” She shrugged. “Fine then, Babycakes, have it your way.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
With the most infinite tenderness I have ever known in my life, he put his arms around me, gently, gently, and I embraced him around the neck, and we touched.
Katherine Anne Porter
He had known several men who blew their heads off, and he had pondered it much. It seemed to him it was probably because they could not take enough happiness just from the sky and the moon to carry them over the low feelings that came to all men.
Larry McMurtry
Against all the opposition in the world, I make this statement -В that once I knew a magician. I was a witness of a performance that may some day be considered understandable, but that, in these primitive times, so transcends what is said to be the known that it is what I mean by magic.
Charles Fort
Jealousy means ego, jealousy means unconsciousness. Jealousy means that you have not known even a moment of joy and bliss; you are living in misery. Jealousy is a by-product of misery, ego, unconsciousness.
My biggest advice for girls – and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger – is to have thick skin. It’s something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs.
Kate Voegele
Liberty and personal independence in America are still a concept some here have never known.
John Longenecker
The excuse or toleration of cruelty upon any living creature by a woman is a deadly sin against the grandest force in nature – maternal love … In not a single instance known to science has the cure of any human disease resulted necessarily from this fallacious method of research.
Elizabeth Blackwell
I do like Christmas. I do understand that there are people who hate it, and there are other religions that resent it. So, I speak to everybody – I try to speak to every kind of minority and majority that cannot escape the steamroller known as Christmas.
John Waters
The greatest characters the world has known, have rose on the democratic floor. Aristocracy has not been able to keep a proportionate pace with democracy.
Thomas Paine
Christmas in the Underworld was NOT my idea. If I’d known what was coming, I would’ve called in sick. I could’ve avoided an army of demons, a fight with a Titan, and a trick that almost got my friends and me cast into eternal darkness. But no, I had to take my stupid English exam.
Rick Riordan
He belonged to that army known as invincible in peace, invisible in war.
William Tecumseh Sherman
I am blind — but I am able to read thanks to a wonderful new system known as ‘broil’ . . . I’m sorry, I’ll just feel that again.
Peter Cook
Happiness is the overcoming of not unknown obstacles toward a known goal.
L. Ron Hubbard
I’ve known him since 1954 and I’ve never taken Mujib Rahiman seriously – I understood from the very first moment that there was no depth to him, no preparation, that he was an agitator breathing a lot of fire and with an absolute lack of ideas.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
That text is known to them that have the patience to read it, possibly one one-hundredth of one percent of the denizens. They forget it, all save a few Western states. I think somebody in Dakota once read it. The Constitution.
Ezra Pound
We can only be faithful to what we remember, and we remember only what we have known.
Marcel Proust
To sum up all, let it be known that science and religion are two identical words. The learned do not suspect this, no more do the religious. These two words express the two sides of the same fact, which is the infinite. Religion-Science, this is the future of the human mind.
Victor Hugo
Uh, excuse me, sir, I, uh, don’t known how to uh, to uh, tell you this, but you were three minutes late. The schedule is a little, uh, bit off.” He grinned sheepishly. “That’s ridiculous!” murmured the Ticktockman behind his mask. “Check your watch.” And then he went into his office, going mrmee, mrmee, mrmee, mrmee.
Harlan Ellison
From him [Wilard Bennett] I learned how different a working laboratory is from a student laboratory. The answers are not known!
[While an undergraduate, doing experimental measurements in the laboratory of his professor, at Ohio State University.]
William M. Fowler
I have never known any distress that an hour’s reading did not relieve.
Keep what you have; the known evil is best.
Act! the wise are known by their actions; fame and immortality are ever their attendants. Mark with deeds the vanishing traces of swiftrolling time. Let us make happy the circle around us,–be useful as much as we may. For that fills up with soft rapture, that dissolves the dark clouds of the day!
Johann Gaudenz von Salis-Seewis
It must be quite difficult if you have a father who’s sort of known. On the other hand, you can get a job in his band.
Bryan Ferry
Always have something to say. The man who has something to say and who is known never to speak unless he has, is sure to be listened to.пїЅ
Dale Carnegie
I’m very proud of being persona non grata. I’ve never been that before in my life, and that suits me extremely wellI’m known for provocations, but I like provocations when they have a purpose. And this had no purpose whatsoever. Because I’m not Mel Gibson. I’m definitely not Mel Gibson.
Lars von Trier
I have known no experience more distressing than the discovery that Negroes didn’t love me. Unutterable loneliness claimed me. I felt without roots, like a man without a country.
Sarah-Patton Boyle
I love working with Liev [Schreiber]. I’ve known him for a long time. I just think he is a master. Few actors are so self-possessed and so focused and so confident.
Peter Jacobson
In the land of badass, you’ve just been trumped. If Dark-Hunters had inmates, these would be they. Known as the Dogs of War because that’s what they thrive on, they’re cold-blooded and intolerant. Congratulations, bud, these are your new protectors. (Acheron)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
All the people in Star Trek will always be known as those characters. And what characters to have attached to your name in life! The show is such a phenomenon all over the world.
Nichelle Nichols
It’s a mistake to suppose that capacities must evolve gradually. There are many known examples of sharp changes – slight genetic modification that yields substantial phenotypic effects, and much else.
Noam Chomsky
This knowledge I pursure is the finest pleasure I have ever known. I could no sooner give it up that I could the very air that I breath.
Paolo Uccello
‘Play It Again Sam’s opening shot is the same as ‘Purple Rose’s final one: a close-up of a face, rapt in a movie house. I’ve certainly felt that in my life. I’ve been known to cry watching Gene Kelly.
David Rakoff
Types really don’t matter. I have been accused of preferring blondes. But I have known some mighty attractive redheads, brunettes, and yes, women with grey hair. Age, height, weight haven’t anything to do with glamour.
Clark Gable
My books hold between their covers every story I’ve ever known and still remember, or have now forgotten, or may one day read; they fill the space around me with ancient and new voices.
Alberto Manguel
I feel sorry for the man who has never known the bracing thrill of taking a stand and sticking to it fearlessly. Moral courage has rewards that timidity can never imagine. Like a shot of adrenaline, it floods the spirit with vitality.
Billy Graham
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.

There wasn’t a lot of music in the home when I was growing up. We didn’t have a piano or anything like that but my grandmother, had been a well-known piano teacher.
George Brandis
I was well known to African Americans before Bill Clinton discovered me. He was like Christopher Columbus riding up on something he didn’t understand.
Sister Souljah
We learn that it is not the rays which bodies absorb, but those which they reject, that give them the colours they are known by; and in the same way people are specialized by their dislikes and antagonisms, whilst their goodwill is looked upon as no attribute at all.
Thomas Hardy
Defense. That’ the thing I’m known for.
Tyson Chandler
To have passed through life and never experienced solitude is to have never known oneself. To have never known oneself is to have never known anyone.
Joseph Wood Krutch
[It is nice] to explore someone’s will to survive, the ferocity of loyalty, how far you would go to protect the ones you love… I believe women have more power than we give ourselves credit for… We have been known to lift cars off of babies! That’s incredible.

As the horsepower in modern automobiles steadily rises, the congestion of traffic steadily lowers the average possible speed of your car. This is known as Progress.
Sydney J. Harris
More and more, there were no revelations, but simply the uncovering of truths long known but dimly remembered. Everything had been written long ago. There was nothing truly new in the world, but only the slow, circular march of time that revealed the old things once again.
Cinda Williams Chima
Oh, do the Overlords of Life and Death always provide some obstacle to prevent what all of us have known in youth was possible from ever coming true?
James Branch Cabell
Good intentions can often lead to unintended consequences. It is hard to imagine a law intended for the workforce known to Henry Ford can serve the needs of a workplace shaped by the innovations of Bill Gates.
Tim Walberg
In every case, the environmental hazards were made known only by independent scientists, who were often bitterly opposed by the corporations responsible for the hazards.
Barry Commoner
He was definitely known as the foremost man killer in the West; however there’s controversy about virtually every killing that he was known to have been involved in.
Keith Carradine
Obama is not the messiah any longer. He is now your standard, ordinary, everyday politician who lies, who breaks promises, who’s in it for himself, who can’t do anything on his own. He’s not qualified. All of this is becoming known, sadly, too late.
Rush Limbaugh
We hold that the reckless disregard for human life implicit in knowingly engaging in criminal activity known to carry a grave risk of death represents a highly culpable mental state that may be taken into account in making a capital sentencing judgment not inevitable, lethal result.
Sandra Day O’Connor
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
Philibert Joseph Roux
If you have never known the power of God’s love, then maybe it is because you have never asked to know it – I mean really asked, expecting an answer.
Frederick Buechner
If we pick recognition over influence we’ll be known for all the wrong stuff.
Bob Goff
Because I think in order to get famous you have to be known for something. Like ‘You’re the romantic comedy girl’ or ‘You’re the Oscar-winning whatever girl.’
Rachel Weisz
Seek not to know what must not be reveal, for joy only flows where fate is most concealed. A busy person would find their sorrows much more; if future fortunes were known before!
John Dryden
When fairy tales are written in the west, they’re known as folklore. In the east, fairy tales are called religions.

William Gibson
Terrorism isn’t insanity. It grows out of social conditions that are well known: poverty, social oppression, dictatorship, and a void of meaning in the lives of ordinary people.
Deepak Chopra
I think if you were known for playing something other than being a nice guy then people might be a little less likely to take liberties with you. If you are Ray Winstone, and people have seen you kick a few people to death, then they are a little less likely to approach you or whatever.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Greyface and his followers took the game of playing at life more seriously than they took life itself and were known even to destroy other living beings whose ways of life differed from their own.
Malaclypse the Younger

Billy Graham
My first mentor and inspiration was my Irish Dancing teacher Patricia Mulholland. She created her own form of dance known as Irish ballet and created stage productions of old Irish myths and legends.

Some books seem to have been written, not to teach us anything, but to let us know that the author has known something.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Life is there ahead of you and either one tests oneself in its challenges or huddles in the valleys of a dreamless day-to-day existence whose only purpose is the preservation of a illusory security and safety. The latter is what the vast majority of people choose to do, fearing the adventure into the known.
Saul Alinsky
I think that public grieving is a good thing. People need to be grieved; loss needs to be acknowledged publicly, because it helps to confer a sense of reality on the loss but also because it makes it known that this was a real life.

If a person is A) poorly, B) receives treatment intended to make him better, and C) gets better, then no power of reasoning known to medical science can convince him that it may not have been the treatment that restored his health.
Peter Medawar
One of the most prevalent and undermentioned genres of music is what is known as noise. You can find it all over the world happening in basements, small venues and even some festivals. Often blown off or belittled by critics, the form for the most part goes unheard and unnoticed.
Henry Rollins
I really love to act; I love everything about it. I’ve never had this addiction to being known. I mean, sure, if you go into acting, there’s part of you that is saying, ‘I want attention’ but I was brought up to work to deserve attention, and it is the work, not the trappings that are important

But yet creation’s neither crammed nor blocked
About by body: there’s in things a void-
Which to have known will serve thee many a turn,
Nor will not leave thee wandering in doubt,
Forever searching in the sum of all,
And losing faith in these pronouncements mine.
It’s no secret that I’ve become known for my strong political views.

Give me, for my life, all lives, give me all the pain of everyone, I’m going to turn it into hope. Give me all the joys, even the most secret, because otherwise how will these things be known? I have to tell them, give me the labors of everyday, for that’s what I sing.
Pablo Neruda
I went to what is known as, and was at that time, too, Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina. In fact, because of the lack of public school facilities, I began there. I began boarding school at the high school level; in fact, a year below the high school level.
Ella Baker
The excitement about independent filmmaking is that they’re a little more open to taking chances. The studios are a little more careful, as far as who they choose for their film and what they’re known for and staying in the genre because they know what works.

Being known primarily for their well-knownness, celebrities intensify their celebrity images simply by becoming widely known for relations among themselves. By a kind of symbiosis, celebrities live off one another.

My mother was the greatest example to me of anyone I’ve ever known. She didn’t have an easy life. I adored her. She worked hard all her life, and she was the one who set my values. She was quite an amazing woman, although she wasn’t tough at all.

I’ve known no better teacher than hunting. And what hunting has taught me is hardly restricted to the ways of wildings and woods.
David Petersen
If you find a series of linear shapes in the same alignment as known archaeological features, and they match excavated examples, you still need to excavate to confirm, but you can be fairly sure that the imagery is accurate.
Sarah Parcak
I love my country very dearly, and I greatly resent the implication that some of the places I have sung and some of the people that I have known, and some of my opinions, whether they are religious or philosophical, or I might be a vegetarian, make me any less of an American.
Pete Seeger
Religion, like all things, begins with self, And naught is known, until one knows himself.
George Eliot
A really great man is known by three signs: generosity in the design, humanity in the execution, moderation in success.
Otto von Bismarck
I’m trying to write poems that involve beginning at a known place, and ending up at a slightly different place. I’m trying to take a little journey from one place to another, and it’s usually from a realistic place, to a place in the imagination.
Billy Collins
China cares about its reputation and doesn’t want to be known as the nation whose preferences drove the extinction of elephants.
Wayne Pacelle
In all things seek to know God’s Will and when known obey at any cost.
Jonathan Goforth
I just don’t want to be known as the actress who can sing. I want to be known as the singer who can act, too. It’s great cross-promotion.
Mandy Moore
The spot where we intend to fight must not be made known; for then the enemy will have toВ prepare against a possible attack at several different points; and his forces being thus distributed inВ many directions, the numbers we shall have to face at any given point will be proportionately few.
Sun Tzu
The beaver, which has come to represent Canada as the eagle does the United States and the lion Britain, is a flat-tailed, slow-witted, toothy rodent known to bite off it’s own testicles or to stand under its own falling trees.
June Callwood
You don’t want to be photographed? You don’t want to be known? Then you don’t need to be out there peddling movies.
Cameron Diaz
It seems that a lot of people, who haven’t known of me as a pianist, think I’ve just started off as a comedian. And so for them the piano was something extra. But, of course, playing the piano was something that came before all of what’s happened now.
Dudley Moore
A Christian is the dwelling place of the living God. He created me, he chose me, He came to dwell in me, because he wanted me. Now that you have known how much God is in love with you it is but natural that you spend the rest of your life radiating that love.
Mother Teresa
Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.
Lord Chesterfield
I am Retired Leisure. I am to be met with in trim gardens. I am already come to be known by my vacant face and careless gesture, perambulating at no fixed pace nor with any settled purpose. I walk about; not to and from.
Charles Lamb
My loathings are simple. stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music. My pleasures are the most intense known to man: writing and butterfly hunting.
Vladimir Nabokov
My dad’s sense of humor was direct and sometimes surreal – his quick wit is well known amongst our family and friends. He raised me on Spike Jones records and W.C. Fields movies, and his sense of humor fell somewhere in between.
Tony Visconti
There was a nuisance in the service known as the army correspondent.
Daniel Harvey Hill
A perfect mind comes from a perfect heart, not the heart known by a doctor’s stethoscope but the heart which is the seat of God.
Mahatma Gandhi
I think certain people may make it to sexual; and then others will offset that with the depth of R & B and all of its substance it has to have, in order to be called R & B or, known for an looked at to be called R & B and I kind of straddle the fence on that one because in my earlier years I was the ‘Nasty Man,’.
Sex is the … tremulous and bewildering and nerve-racking and delicious and myriad-adjectived soul-condition … generally known as love. Ninety-nine point nine repeater percent of the world’s literature has been devoted to its analysis. It’s therefore of some importance.
William John Locke
Because you aren’t who you think you are. You aren’t what everyone else believes. You might have delivered countless deaths but you love more fiercely than anyone I’ve ever known.
Gena Showalter
I’ve never been ready to do a single thing I’ve ever done in my life. I haven’t been prepared enough, haven’t studied enough, haven’t known enough. You can never be ready. There’s just so much to know.
Lyle Lovett
Past and present, it is all the same, books are necromancers, they exercise an influence more varied, more lasting, than any magic known to man.
Holbrook Jackson
Those comfortably padded lunatic asylums which are known, euphemistically, as the stately homes of England.
Virginia Woolf
I’m probably one of the four or five best known Americans in the world.
Rudy Giuliani
American culture has always known success, not suffering, so we’ve never known what to do with this part of the Bible. The more we succeed, the more we’re seduced into thinking we can control everything. We dissect Revelation to get a sense of control over the future.
Bill Vaughan
A man is known to be mortal by two things, Sleep and Lust.
George Herbert
By honoring the lives of those we admire, we make our own values known.
Steve Jobs
There’s one thing I’ve always known: You can let people suspect anything else about you, but you must never let them suspect you of knowing what you’re doing.
Kathleen Winsor
It is rather a problem of how to secure the best use of resources known to any of the members of society, for ends whose relative importance only those individuals know.
Friedrich August von Hayek
Maybe we’re the fools, for thinking we know things. Maybe humans are the only ones who can deal with the fact that nothing can ever be known at all.
Orson Scott Card
In my younger days, when I was painted by the half-educated, loose and inaccurate ways women had, I used to say, “How much women need exact science” But since I have known some workers in science, I have now said, “How much science needs women”
Maria Mitchell
You can’t brace yourself for famine if you’ve never known hunger.
David Sedaris
The development of mathematics towards greater precision has led, as is well known, to the formalization of large tracts of it, so that one can prove any theorem using nothing but a few mechanical rules.
Kurt Gödel
Adrien, people get killed all the time. Since when is it your job to find out what happened to them?” “I’m not usually suspected of murdering them.” “You have been as long as I’ve known you.
Josh Lanyon
perhaps all this modern ferment of what’s known as ‘social conscience’ or ‘civic responsibility’ isn’t a result of the sense of duty, but of the old, old craving for beauty.
Dorothy Canfield Fisher
I tend to only read comics written by friends or people I’ve known. And I’m not a great comic reader.
Grant Morrison
I am sure you will be guided right in your decision, to place implicit faith in his integrity and honesty. Best wishes from one who has known Richard longer than anyone else. His mother
Hannah Milhous Nixon
I love nice things – I consider Ralph Lauren sheets to be a necessity, not a luxury – but I’ve known what it’s like to be poor.
Martine McCutcheon
I’ve known Nicholas Parsons for a fairly long time and his geniune pleasures are in rubber tubes, metal clips
Clement Freud
We’ve had Muslims in America since George Washington. And we’ve had many successful Muslims. We just lost a particular well-known one with Muhammad Ali.
Hillary Clinton
What corporations fear is the phenomenon now known, rather inelegantly, as ‘commoditization.’ What the term means is simply the conversion of the market for a given product into a commodity market, which is characterized by declining prices and profit margins, increasing competition, and lowered barriers to entry.
James Surowiecki
I always like the idea of doing interviews with somebody but completely seriously not ever mentioning what that person is generally known for.
Dave Eggers
Once the travel bug bites, there is no known antidote.
Michael Palin
The aim of art, the aim of a life can only be to increase the sum of freedom and responsibility to be found in every man and in the world. It cannot, under any circumstances, be to reduce or suppress that freedom, even temporarily.
Albert Camus
Some of the players are known as scorers or assists. I guess what I am known as being is an ironwoman.
Heather Mitts
Don’t cry for me, Grace. I’m not worth it. (Julian) Yes you are! (Grace) You are my saving Grace. Without you, I would never have known love. And I would never have known me again. (Julian)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I’ve taken my fun where I’ve found it, An’ now I must pay for my fun, For the more you ‘ave known o’ the others The less will you settle to one.
Rudyard Kipling
Kandinsky in Munich uttered the well known words: ‘Everything is permitted!’ In 1961; we still live by this heritage, which in truth is inexhaustible.
Michel Seuphor
There’s a reason I’m known – to bring people to Allah, to God.
Muhammad Ali
But 40 told me to do me and don’t listen to anybody that knew me. Cause to have known me would mean that there’s a new me and if you think I’ve changed, then the slightest could have fooled me.
The process of unleashing worms on organic waste such as food scraps and grass clippings is known as ‘vermicomposting.’ Amateur horticulturists and hippies have been doing it on a small scale for decades.
Tahl Raz
We give a lot of others significance in our lives even when they don’t deserve it. It doesn’t matter if they’re family or if you’ve known them forever. If they’re not good for you, they’ve got to go.
Gabrielle Union
Except when war is waged in a desert, noncombatants, also known as civilians or “the people,” constitute the great majority of those affected.
Martin Van Creveld
If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
James Thurber
The spiritual life is first of all a life. It is not merely something to be known and studied, it is to be lived.
Thomas Merton
Something I’ve always known about the screen is that if it’s anything in the world, it’s literal. It’s so literal that there’s a whole lot you can’t do because you’re stuck with the literalness of the screen. The stage is not literal.
Joan Didion
[Misquotation; not by Einstein.] If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker. [Apparently remorseful for his role in the development of the atom bomb.]
Albert Einstein
Many of us rely on our own illusion of control. But when God makes it known to you that you’re not the one steering the ship, be thankful. He has removed the illusion, and forced you to rely only on Him.
Yasmin Mogahed
The man who can get believers to praying would, under God, usher in the greatest revival that the world has ever known.
Leonard Ravenhill
When I was thin, I had no notion of what being fat is like. When I worked in a department store, I had sold clothes to women of most sizes, so I should have known; but perhaps you have to experience the state from the inside, to understand what fat is like.
Hilary Mantel
One of the things that would steer me away from a franchise is that I’m playing the same character all the time and I wouldn’t want to be known for that.
Saoirse Ronan
I prefer to be known as a leader for all the communities.
Though perhaps less universally known than such figures as Einstein or Gandhi (who became symbols of our time) Daisetz Suzuki was no less remarkable a man than these. And though his work may not have had such resounding and public effect, he contributed no little to the spiritual and intellectual revolution of our time.
D.T. Suzuki
For it is said, you know, that a letter will always seek a reader; that sooner or later, like it or not, words have a way of finding the light, of making their secrets known.
Kate Morton
It’s a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where.
James Clavell
On Saturday, I was a surgeon in South Africa, very little known. On Monday, I was world renowned.
Christiaan Barnard
I worked on local papers, before taking a job as a webmaster with a very well known telecommunications company in London, as I thought the internet was the future.
Neil Oliver
I should have known that if any girl was going to disobey an order, it would be you.
Kiera Cass
Persons are not known by intellect alone, not by principles alone, but only by love. It is when we love the other, the enemy, that we obtain from God the key to an understanding of who he is, and who we are. It is only this realization that can open to us the real nature of our duty, and of right action.
Thomas Merton
Though my heart may be left of centre, I have always known that the only economic system that works is a market economy… This is the only natural economy, the only kind that makes sense, the only one that can lead to prosperity, because it is the only one that reflects the nature of life itself.
Vaclav Havel
And if, to be sure, sometimes you need to conceal a fact with words, do it in such a way that it does not become known, or, if it does become known, that you have a ready and quick defense.
Niccolo Machiavelli
I have known good and evil,В  sin and virtue, right and wrong;В  I have judged and been judged;В  I have passed through birth and death,В  Joy and sorrow, heaven and hell;В  And in the end I realizedВ  that I AM in everythingВ and everything is in me.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.
Mark Twain
On religion in particular, the time appears to me to have come, when it is a duty of all who, being qualified in point of knowledge, have, on mature consideration, satisfied themselves that the current opinions are not only false, but hurtful, to make their dissent known.
John Stuart Mill
It was a miracle; it was all a miracle: and one ought to have known, from the sufferings of saints, that miracles are horror.
Nadine Gordimer
Do you want to tear your life apart and get rid of everything you’ve known as a lifestyle? Like seeing your family? Being with your friends? A fishing trip? A hunting trip? A night’s sleep?
Walter F. Mondale
I think chemistry is being frittered away by the hairsplitting of the organic chemists; we have new compounds discovered, which scarcely differ from the known ones and when discovered are valueless-very illustrations perhaps of their refinements in analysis, but very little aiding the progress of true science.
Michael Faraday
I’ve always known I would be a success, but I was surprised at the way it came.
Eva Gabor
It was joy, joy, happy joy. Happy, happy joy. A big fat smiley sun rose above the rooftops and beamed down its blessings onto the borough known as Brentford.
Robert Rankin
Some types of environmental restoration projects are well-known; restored wetlands, for instance, or coal mine reclamation projects. Recently though, larger dam removal projects have started, a number of them in Washington state.
Matt Gonzalez
I also grew to love Nancy Reagan in a certain way. I learned more – certainly I learned more bad stuff that I had known about in greater detail, but I also got a lot of empathy.
Cynthia Nixon
Thanks to a hacker known as Guccifer who wormed into the computer of the 43rd president’s sister, the world has learned that George W. Bush is an amateur – I would say serious amateur – painter.
Roberta Smith
The biggest one [trade deal], a multinational one known as CAFTA, I voted against. And because I hold the same standards as I look at all of these trade deals.
Hillary Clinton
I’m not a religious man… I find I am a fan of science. I believe in science. A humility before the facts. I find that a moving and beautiful thing. And belief in the unknown I find less interesting. I find the known and the knowable interesting enough.
Hugh Laurie
From the point of view of literature Mr. Kipling is a genius who drops his aspirates. From the point of view of life, he is a reporter who knows vulgarity better than any one has ever known it.
Oscar Wilde
I’ve known Ben Stiller for a minute. One of my first movies was ‘Along Came Polly.’
Kevin Hart
It was decided almost two hundred years ago that English should be the language spoken in the United States. It is not known, however, why this decision has not been carried out.
George Mikes
Obedience to truth known, is the king’s highway to that which is still beyond us.
Francis Quarles
It is because Humanity has never known where it was going that it has been able to find its way.
Oscar Wilde
What innocence, may I ask, is being played here when it is known that this virtuous damsel has already got a dozen illegitimate children?
Nikita Khrushchev
Humanity has known for a long time what fractals are. It is a very strange situation in which an idea which each time I look at all documents have deeper and deeper roots, never (how to say it), jelled.
Benoit Mandelbrot
Harman International’s dedication to research and development, as well as its strict adherence to quality manufacturing, are well known throughout the corporate world. The opportunity to lead a company with such high standards, worldwide reputation, and outstanding growth potential is extremely appealing.
Dinesh Paliwal
I first met Myra Henshawe when I was fifteen, but I had known her about ever since I could remember anything at all.
Willa Cather
Many of them have accomplished a lot before they ever get to ‘Top Chef’ although they’re not well known. The show just provides them with a platform. There’s just one winner and on some seasons you can get numerous chefs that are really good. Even if they don’t win, they’re all talented.
Tom Colicchio
I’ve been working since I was 9, and I’ve never known a life without a film set.
Daniel Radcliffe
I don’t want to be known as Gary Coleman’s wife.
Gary Coleman
Your Majesty would have a perfect right to strike off his head,” said Peridan. “Such an assault as he made puts him on a level with assassins.” “It is very true,” said Edmund. “But even a traitor may mend. I have known one that did.” And he looked very thoughtful.
C. S. Lewis
Nothing is hidden that will not be made known; nothing is secret that will not come to light.
Dan Brown
A state of war or anarchy, in which law has little force, is so far valuable, that it puts every man on trial. The man of principle is known as such, and even in the fury of faction is respected.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.
Pat Buchanan
Alone you’re refinding a glittering, a clarity, you’re finding your distilled self. …You think of the two types of aloneness you’ve known recently: this wonderful, sparkly, soul-refreshing type, and the despairing loneliness that sucks the breath from your life.
Nikki Gemmell
Buck did not read the newspapers, or he would have known that trouble was brewing, not alone for himself, but for every tide-water dog, strong of muscle and with warm, long hair, from Puget Sound to San Diego.
Jack London
If only Al Sharpton were around, Lincoln would have known he was a victim of racism.
Ann Coulter
He was going to live in New York, and be known at every restaurant and cafГ©, wearing a dress suit from early evening to early morning, sleeping away the dull hours of the forenoon.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Nothing can be rightly known, if God be not known; nor is any study well managed, nor to any great purpose, if God is not studied. We know little of the creature, till we know it as it stands related to the Creator.
Richard Baxter
I never meant to hurt you, Isabel. Had I known what I would find when I came north, I would never have agreed to Leighton’s request… That is a lie. Had I known that I would find you when I came north, I would have come years ago.
Sarah MacLean
[Melania Trump] was always the highest quality that you’ll ever find and the things they say, I’ve known her for a long time.
Donald Trump
If one harbours anywhere in one’s mind a nationalistic loyalty or hatred, certain facts, although in a sense known to be true, are inadmissible.
George Orwell
…and rout the magical mystical moonlight with fierce proof of its own greater power to light, to heat, to make everything known.
Irving Stone
I shall go on some last wilderness trip, to a place I have known and loved. I shall not return.
Everett Ruess
Everyone seems to think I’m very ladylike. That I’m very cultured and intelligent. I drink alot of Diet Coke and belch. I’ve been known to use the F-word. I’ve told a few dirty jokes. I arm-wrestle.
Helena Bonham Carter
No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger.
Rainer Maria Rilke
I have the instruments, ideas, technology, computer techniques. We try to create or see something, which has not been known before – just to discover something together. This is always my dream.
Lennart Nilsson
One hardly dares to say that love is the core of the relationship, though love is sought for and created in relationship; love is rather the marvel when it is there, but it is not always there, and to know another and to be known by another – that is everything.
Florida Scott-Maxwell
Muhammad Ali is a combination of personality and athlete who is probably better known around the world than any other. He became a great hero.
Will McDonough
It is well-known what a middleman is: he is a man who bamboozles one party and plunders the other.
Benjamin Disraeli
A new report shows that medicare and Medicaid made more than $50 Billion in bad payments during fiscal year 2011. Under Obamacare, that’ll become known as ‘Tuesday.’
Fred Thompson
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Corrie Ten Boom
Change the emphasis, turn your attention around. If you become concerned with death, your life comes to be revealed to you for the first time, because the moment you become at ease with death you have gained a life that cannot die. The moment you have known death, you have known that life which is eternal.
We are known to our friends by a look in our eyes that we never see in a mirror.
Robert Breault
When I finally gathered, invented, stole, simplified, borrowed, and found a publisher for a clutch of reasonably foolproof recipes, I learned I had friends I hadn’t known about – more proof that a mutual dislike can be quite as sound a basis for friendship as a mutual devotion.
Peg Bracken
Love that has been tested is far more awe-inspiring than love that has never known anything but bliss.
Po Bronson
I make things of my own that aren’t that glam, but I’m not known for that, which has always been a bit of a frustration for me.
Vera Wang
That we are surrounded by deep mysteries is known to all but the incurably ignorant.
Chinua Achebe
You can receive Christ into your heart, and he can bring joy, and a thrill, and glory such as you have never known – if you will give your life to him.
Billy Graham
Some people don’t understand that it is the nature of the eye to have seen forever, and the nature of the mind to recall anything that was ever known.
Alice Walker
It’s an ancient technique known as lying, Khouri.
Alastair Reynolds
Dodge v. Ford still stands for the legal principal that managers and directors have a legal duty to put the shareholders’ interests above all others and no legal authority to serve any other interests – what has come to be known as “the best interests of the corporation” principal.
Joel Bakan
The grand solid merit of jury trial is that the jurors … are selected at the last moment from the multitude of citizens. They cannot be known beforehand, and they melt back into the multitiude after each trial.
John Henry Wigmore
Its hard in the firehouse to avoid the dessert thing. At 3 in the morning after some emergency, I have been known to eat an ice cream sandwich.
Caroline Paul
The way to get ahead is to start now. If you start now, you will know a lot next year that you don’t know now and that you would not have known next year if you had waited.
William Feather
I guess there are some things that are so gross you just have to forget, or it’ll destroy something within you. Perl is the first such thing I have known.
Erik Naggum
I am a fool. That is well known.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Farewell, too little, and too lately known, Whom I began to think and call my own.
John Dryden
I like men who have known the best and the worst, whose life has been anything but a smooth trip. Storms have battered them, they have lain, sometimes for months on end, becalmed. There is a residue even if they fail. It has not been all tinkling; there have been grand chords.
James Salter
Thirty-six years after coming to America, the man once known by fellow bodyВ­builders as the Austrian Oak was elected governor of California, the seventh largest economy in the world.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
You want to know whether I believe in ghosts? Of course I do not believe in them. If you had known as many of them as I have, you would not believe in them either.
Don Marquis
What we need is an electronic encyclopedia of life, with one page for each species. On each page is given everything known about that species.
E. O. Wilson
Even if it meant that she had failed, she was glad. And if what she’d wanted had been impossible from the start, still there was a certain lonely comfort in the fact that she’d known it was impossible and had gone ahead and done it anyway.
Donna Tartt
From a mathematical standpoint it is possible to have infinite space. In a mathematical sense space is manifoldness, or combinations of numbers. Physical space is known as the 3-dimension system. There is the 4-dimension system, the 10-dimension system.
Charles Proteus Steinmetz
So, you see, it’s a real chore for me to write a book review because it’s like a contest. It’s like I’m writing that book review for every bad book reviewer I’ve ever known and it’s a way of saying [thrusts a middle finger into the air] this is how you ought to do it. I like to rub their noses in it.
John Irving
Golden rule: Made of hard metal so it could stand severe wear, it not being known at that time that butter would answer.
Mark Twain
I was taken off from plane and interrogated by U.S. Immigration in Canada on my views on drones. My stance is known. Drone attacks must stop.
Imran Khan
Imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.
Napoleon Hill
Human affairs are so obscure and various that nothing can be clearly known. This was the sound conclusion of the Academic sceptics, who were the least surly of philosophers.
Desiderius Erasmus
in politics as in life, what is known is not necessarily what is believed, what is shown is not necessarily what is seen, and what is said is not necessarily what is heard.
Kathleen Hall Jamieson
Form is emptiness, emptiness is form” states the Heart Sutra, one of the best known ancient Buddhist texts. The essence of all things is emptiness.
Eckhart Tolle
There are no instances known to me of cultures having forsaken Truth or renounced the understanding in its widest sense.
Johan Huizinga
I have a fantastic husband. Here’s the honeymoon part: I still think he’s the funniest, wittiest, most clever man I’ve ever known.
Sarah Jessica Parker
If I’d known it was going to be the last time he’d ever hold me, I’d have paid better attention.
Megan Hart
Chuck Norris has been known to throw a baseball 100 mph. I’ve been known to throw Chuck Norris 100 mph.
Brian Wilson
I’m best known as a stand-up comedian, but I’m a good actor in the right role.
Marcus Brigstocke
How long can we maintain? I wonder. How long before one of us starts raving and jabbering at this boy? What will he think then? This same lonely desert was the last known home of the Manson family. Will he make that grim connection.
Hunter S. Thompson
What really alarms me about President Bush’s ‘War on Terrorism’ is the grammar. How do you wage war on an abstract noun? How is ‘Terrorism’ going to surrender? It’s well known, in philological circles, that it’s very hard for abstract nouns to surrender.
Terry Jones
Powerful women intimidate men. If she’s a really well-known woman, she has a career, she’s famous – in that case, men are really afraid.
Donatella Versace
You cannot have 300-some million Americans – and really, right, the global citizenry be at risk of having their phone conversations intercepted with a known flaw, simply because some intelligence agencies might get some data. That is not acceptable.
Ted Lieu
Cradles are the most powerful pinning combination known to man
Wade Schalles
Consciousness … is the phenomenon whereby the universe’s very existence is made known.
Roger Penrose
I think empathy is a beautiful thing. I think that’s the power of film though. We have one of the most powerful, one of the greatest communicative tools known to man.
Michelle Rodriguez
When I received my first paycheck from my now known day job, I spent it on a period Craftsman chair and a Frank Lloyd Wright-wannabe lamp. With my second paycheck, I bought a stereo.
Brad Pitt
In this world one must have a name; it prevents confusion, even when it does not establish identity. Some, though, are known by numbers, which also seem inadequate distinctions.
Ambrose Bierce
If you find your sustenance in Christ, my dear young people, and if you live profoundly in him as did the Apostle Paul, you will not be able to resist speaking about him and making him known and loved by many of your friends and contemporaries.
Pope Benedict XVI
The age of credulity is every age the world has ever known. Men have always turned from the ascertained, which is limited and discouraging, to the dubious, which is unlimited and full of hope for everybody.
Agnes Repplier
When you allow yourself to be unpredictable, you step from the known into the unknown, where anything is possible
Deepak Chopra
In the 1970s and 1980s there was so little decent fiction for young people, but we’re now in a golden age that shows no sign of fading. Philip Pullman, J. K. Rowling, Lemony Snicket are only three of the best known among a good number of equals.
David Mitchell
The Democrats have always been known as the party that’s negative and look at everything wrong.
Rush Limbaugh
Although I’m known for my long, colorful locs, I still don’t take my hair too seriously. I experiment a lot, dyeing it and constantly switching styles to grab attention. My hair is one of my best accessories and changing it helps express who I am.
She had always known that all lives are in common, rejoicing in her kinship to the fish in the tanks of her laboratories, seeking the experience of existences outside the human boundary.
Ursula K. Le Guin
It was a country . . . that he and his people had known how to use and abuse, but not how to preserve.
Wendell Berry
Verily, I do not like them, the merciful who feel blessed in their pity: they are lacking too much in shame. If I must pity, at least I do not want it known; and if I do pity, it is preferably from a distance.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I can always tell when a girl comes from a good family because she’s what’s known as not at all attracted to me.
Dov Davidoff
I have every magazine known to mankind. I just love home decor and travel magazines, and I’m inspired to go visit places I’ve never been. That’s what I really want to do – travel.
Jillian Barberie
I’ve never known a time when the in-fighting in the Labour Party was so bitter.
Roy Hattersley
I want to be known for what I am, black and white, because I’m proud of both.
I think, as a comedian, the funniest you can be is with people you know, and [whom] you’ve known for years, in a pub. That’s as funny as you get, and so the aim [while stand-up] is to get that funny on stage with 5,000 strangers, to get that funny in a room where people shouldn’t be listening but they are.
Ricky Gervais
Stones have been known to move and trees to speak.
William Shakespeare
Except when war is waged in a desert, noncombatants, also known as civilians or ‘the people,’ constitute the great majority of those affected.
Martin Van Creveld
As we look out into the Universe and identify the many accidents of physics and astronomy that have worked together to our benefit, it almost seems as if the Universe must in some sense have known that we were coming.

For the liver, what’s so interesting is that there’s no stem cell in the liver. So the normal liver actually can regenerate. It’s one of the only organs in the human body that can do this, and we’ve known this since the time of Greek mythology.
Sangeeta N. Bhatia
The development of beings with minds is probably the highest individuation the world has ever known, and its prehistory is the history of life on earth.

Dennis Weaver
There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. Cast about, and see if this feeling has not injured every person you have ever known to fall into it.
Abraham Lincoln

Soren Kierkegaard
To create the reality of space with this sense of suspension: nothing’s happening, it’s endless; we’re traveling at 28,000 kilometers an hour but nothing’s happening. Nothing! And you have to do that! There are all these rules you have to follow, I’ve never known anything like it.
Danny Boyle
Once again, through myself, the Church, in the words of the well-known declaration Nostra Aetate, ‘deplores the hatred, persecutions and displays of anti-Semitism directed against the Jews at any time and by anyone.’ I repeat, ‘By anyone.’

Marilyn Monroe
I wondered why I hadn’t loved that day more, why I hadn’t savored every bit of it…why I hadn’t known how good it was to live so normally, so everyday. But you only know that, I suppose, after it’s not normal and every day any longer.
Anna Quindlen
Well, He had known what love was-a sharp pang, a fierce experience, in the midst of whose flames he was struggling! but, through that furnace he would fight his way out into the serenity of middle age,-all the richer and more human for having known this great passion.

I have known Ori Kam for several years and have always regarded him as an extraordinarily talented young mucisian.
Isaac Stern
I think ‘SNL’ is so well-known for its musical performances, as well, and people really breaking into America through a really great performance on there. So I think me and Gotye are both really excited to be amongst such company. You know, it’s great.
When my kids were in preschool, I was part of a carpooling group. One mother sometimes showed up with bruises on her body. She always had an excuse. Then one morning, she didn’t show up. Later, I learned she’d fled a violent marriage. I’ve always thought, If only I’d known, maybe I could have helped.
Patty Murray
…it is not possible to create the opposite of what one has always known, simply because the opposite is believed to be desired. Human beings need what they already know, even horrors.
A. S. Byatt

Ben Horowitz
The great writers of aphorisms read as if they had all known each other well.
Elias Canetti
A person who is obsessed with Jesus knows that the sin of pride is always a battle. Obsessed people know that you can never be “humble enough,” and so they seek to make themselves less known and Christ more known (Mt 5:16).
Francis Chan
The writer who is a mother should, I think, record everything she can: make notes, keep journals, take photographs, use a tape recorder, and remind herself that there is a subject so incalculably vast significance to humanity, about which virtually nothing is known because writers have not been mothers.
Alicia Ostriker
My first name – I have no middle name – was chosen by my father, as he told me, on that solitary walk in the forested hills. He selected it from a verse of the seventh chapter of Isaiah; there was no Immanuel among our ancestors known to him.
Immanuel Velikovsky

Paul Engle
Beauty is merely the Spiritual making itself known sensuously.

Jane Austen
You’re my dream, Alaric McCabe. And I love you. I’ve loved you from the moment your horse dumped you at my cottage. I spent so much time being resentful and lamenting the circumstances of my life, but ’tis true that I wouldn’t change a single thing because then I would have never known your love.
Maya Banks
A tough woman. That lady has touched more people than I’ve ever known.
Ray Allen
Moreover, the works already known are due to chance and experiment rather than to sciences; for the sciences we now possess are merely systems for the nice ordering and setting forth of things already invented; not methods of invention or directions for new works.
Francis Bacon
I am an actress, I earn money, I am well-known. I don’t think it is altruism to become engaged in humanitarian work. It’s the least one can do.
Emmanuelle Beart
Had I known but yesterday what I know today, I’d have taken out your two grey eyes and put in eyes of clay. And had I known but yesterday you’d be no more my own, I’d have taken out your heart of flesh and put in one of stone.
Carolyn Parkhurst
Art is the inheritance of every individual, it activates evolutionary growth, it is an intellectual virtue, and the fostering principle for all that is made, done, or known.
Alonzo King
I’ve always known I could write. I have an ear for production and melody. It was just that, in those early years, I let everyone do it for me. To be honest, I was a little lazy!
Belinda Carlisle
How does one stay mindful? Where feelings are known as they arise, known as they persist, known as they pass away. Thoughts are known as they arise, known as they persist, known as they pass away. Perceptions are known they arise, known as they persist, known as they pass away. This is how a monk stays awake.
Gautama Buddha
The modern day anarchists known as the Tea Party, they believe in no government.
Harry Reid
I wished I’d known weeks ago that we didn’t have to be chaperoned. I remembered my old daydreams: the prince and I, alone together, cuddling and whispering… I probably would have wised up and brocken the engagement sooner.
Margaret Haddix
I don’t think many writers like their best-known piece of work, particularly when it was written a long time ago.
Lillian Hellman

Kenneth Noland
Forces of nature act in a mysterious manner. We can but solve the mystery by deducing the unknown result from the known results of similar events.
Mahatma Gandhi
I sense that, without sensitivity to physical pain and pleasure, man would not have known self-interest, and consequently know just or unjust acts. Thus, physical sensitivity and self-interest are the authors of all justice.
Jonathan Balcombe
The one thing I do not want to be called is First Lady. It sounds like a saddle horse. Would you notify the telephone operators and everyone else that I’m to be known simply as Mrs. Kennedy and not as First Lady.
Jackie Kennedy
[My vision of America is] a good vision. Actually the best is on TV. I wanted to shoot all the pictures off the TV. No one would have known the difference.
Andy Warhol
Inside you there’s an artist you don’t know about… say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.
As a movie actor, once you’ve become known, you’re observed all the time so you don’t get the chance to observe anymore. You still get a taste of life but it’s not quite the same and there’s something to be said for a more anonymous life.
Clint Eastwood
Reputation being essentially contemporaneous, is always at the mercy of the Envious and the Ignorant. But Fame, whose very birth is posthumous, and which is only known to exist by the echo of its footsteps through congenial minds, can neither be increased nor diminished by any degree of wilfulness.
Anna Brownell Jameson
We can all be stimulated to greater generosity by the known generosity of others.
John Stott
A priori Logical propositions are such as can be known a priori without study of the actual world.
Bertrand Russell
Women who have understood fashion and style for so long have always known it’s not about having more pieces. It’s about having the right pieces and having the pieces that are of a great quality and look like you know what you’re doing. You don’t have to have a million things on.
Meghan Markle
I was raised with the idea that I was born dying. That with every breath you take, you get closer to your last. It’s something I’ve always known.

I’ve known the panic of financial struggle. I didn’t grow up with money at all, and my family has certainly known the panic of, ‘Oh, gosh, where’s the next bit of money coming from?’
Cate Blanchett
God knew we would make mistakes. Life is all about mistakes. It is constant change and growth. Our greatest challenges in life will one day be known to us as our greatest teachers.

Shigeru Miyamoto
I hope you don’t get known for nothing crazy, cause no man ever wants to hear those stories bout his lady.

Mike Birbiglia

Jesse Helms
I think when someone who’s known for doing drama does a comedy but just tries to be funny, that’s a mistake.
Steve Carell

Will Cuppy
Very few of my characters are based on people I’ve known. It is too constricting.
Julian Barnes
My father is one of the few men I’ve known who has genuine humility, and it lends him a natural dignity. He has absolutely no ego drive, and so he is one of the most beloved men in this part of the state.
Harper Lee
The ‘fires’n that produce thick, rarely innocent, often strategic smoke should therefore be scrutinized. they should be known and identified; and when they involve dishonesty, lies, or manipulation, they they should be ignored.
Tariq Ramadan
Aeneas carried his aged father on his back from the ruins of Troy and so do we all, whether we like it or not, perhaps even if we have never known them.
Angela Carter

It’s a human instinct to be known.
Natasha Leggero
There’s a personality trait known as agreeableness. Agreeable people are compassionate and polite. And agreeable people get paid less than disagreeable people for the same job. Women are more agreeable than men.

Buzz Bissinger
Don’t make yourself so special,” the dwarf said with a snort. “As if getting lost was some trick that only women knew. I’ve known men who could get lost in their own bedrooms. The only difference is that men with no sense of direction don’t brag about it, the way women do.
Gerald Morris
But, in truth, it had not exactly been gold, or even the promise of gold, but more like the fantasy of gold, the fairy dream that the gold is there, at the end of the rainbow, and will continue to be there forever – provided, naturally, that you don’t go and look. This is known as finance.
Terry Pratchett
When I saw all of the people I have known all these years, when we got together, it was scary because B.B King and I lived in the same place in Nevada.
Ruth Brown
You look back on some little decision you made and realize all the things that happened because of it, and you think to yourself “if only I’d known,” but, of course, you couldn’t have known.
Mary Downing Hahn
I’ve known Donald forever, and I know the bad things they say about Donald Trump is not true because I’ve known him as a friend for so long. I’ve seen what he’s done for all types of people. I know how many people call him a racist and all this, and it just makes me sick because he’s not.
John Daly
It has long been known that the chemical atomic weight of hydrogen was greater than one-quarter of that of helium, but so long as fractional weights were general there was no particular need to explain this fact, nor could any definite conclusions be drawn from it.
Francis William Aston

Anthony Burgess

The internet seems to be what a lot of independent bands are doing these days. They’re bypassing the studio – the big studios, EMI and all the record companies – and just doing it themselves, online, selling their stuff, getting known through that medium.
David Gilmour
Even child abuse specialists do not routinely screen for domestic violence. This shows how much more education we need to do, even among experts, to understand the known links between violence of the child and the parent.

Napoleon Bonaparte
Governments have ever been known to hold a high hand over the education of the people. They know, better than anyone else, that their power is based almost entirely on the school. Hence, they monopolize it more and more.
Francesc Ferrer i Guardia
It’s a little-known linguistic curiosity that the name Jehovah or Jaweh is the same name as Eve; Havva, the counterpart name in Farsi, the language spoken by the Persians, means either Jaweh or Eve.

Milan Kundera
It was my duty to have loved the highest; It surely was my profit had I known: It would have been my pleasure had I seen. We needs must love the highest when we see it, Not Lancelot, nor another.

William Cowper
I’ve known for quite a while that I was a funny girl.
Niecy Nash
Whatever we refuse to recognize about ourselves has a way of rearing its head and making itself known when we least expect it.
Debbie Ford
Writing about someone well known removes that obligation of defending it as a subject, but it also means that some of the surprise and freshness is already gone. It’s so different – in some ways much harder for me.
Susan Orlean
My mother wasn’t rich, and I never seen my father. I was a street performer. I’ve been shot. And now I’m known around the world, and I’ve touched a lot of people with my music. That’s one of the great testimonies that’s gonna go down in history.
R. Kelly
The sweetest thing I’ve ever known was like the kiss on the collarbone, the soft caress of happiness, the way you walk, your style of dress, I wish I didn’t get so weak, oh baby just to hear you speak, makes me argue just to see how much your in love with me

Thomas Jefferson
Because I am known in the horror genre now, I try and do at least one horror movie a year for my fans, my fans have been so good to me.
Robert Englund
It drops us into a vigorous current, a constant state of misguided control. The doomed generation takes a final step forward, ignoring all the signs that state the obvious, and leaps into a trip no drug known to man could ever encompass.
Hunter S. Thompson
Here’s how bizarre the war is that we’re in Iraq, and we should have known this right from the get-go: When we first went into Iraq, Germany didn’t want to go. Germany. The Michael Jordan of war took a pass.
Jon Stewart
My love for traveling to islands amounts to a pathological condition known as nesomania, an obsession with islands. This craze seems reasonable to me, because islands are small self-contained worlds that can help us understand larger ones.
Paul Theroux
