I had a ’69 Road Runner when I was a kid. I had it for 13 days, came home one day, and my parents were in the driveway.

I think Hefner himself wants to go down in history as a person of sophistication and glamour. But the last person I would want to go down in history as is Hugh Hefner.
I believe that all is illusion and vanity outside the treasure of truths slowly accumulated, and which will never again be lost. I believe that the sum of these truths, always increasing, will at last confer on man incalculable power and peace, if not happiness. Yes, I believe in the final triumph of life.

I did this book ‘Harvest for Hope,’ and I learned so much about food. And one thing I learned is that we have the guts not of a carnivore, but of an herbivore. Herbivore guts are very long because they have to get the last bit of nutrition out of leaves and things.
We’re under some gross misconception that we’re a good species, going somewhere important, and that at the last minute we’ll correct our errors and God will smile on us. It’s delusion.
There’s one part of the forest in Wales, it’s like a natural bowl, and when we drove into it last time, it was getting dark. And as you came over the hill you could see fireworks being set off, the whole place was lit up and you could see this huge crowd all jumping up and down and cheering.

Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift.

Ribofunk indicates a focus on biology as the upcoming big science in the way that physics was for the last 50 or 100 years. If you look for a biological thread throughout science fiction, you can find it, but it’s a very small percentage of the total. That’s been changing in the last few years.
War should be the politics of last resort. And when we go to war, we should have a purpose that our people understand and support.

When I turned 59, I looked at that as the first day of my 60th year, so I’ve been 60 for the last 365 days, in my opinion. So I’ve been thinking all this year, I’m 60 – this is the time when I need to get some stuff done.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
Whooping cough is not a mild disease. Whooping cough, before the vaccination, could make you very, very sick. First of all, there was a chance you could die from it – small chance, not a big chance. You would be coughing and coughing. It wouldn’t last for a few days, like a cold.
My obsession is with technology and how it can improve human life. In my view, what we have seen in the last 300 years is only a trailer.

What do I see when I look in the mirror? One handsome man. No, I see the same person I have seen for the last 27 years: the person I believed I could be when I was a child, the person I have inspired and dreamed to be all my life, and that’s the person I have seen, from being that big to as big as the roof – the same guy.

My attitude is govern as if you’ve run your last race. That’s not to say I’ve run my last race, but govern with a liberation and a freedom; change your mind frame to operate that way.

I honestly believe you can never tell if a relationship is going to last. In my own marriage, which is going on 14 years, I don’t think of it as ‘I’m going to be with this person forever.’ Instead, I think of more like, ‘I’ll probably be with this person for the next six weeks. Then I’ll re-evaluate.’
Every day, every year, every new season is a reset from the last, and you are still hungry for success, to do things better and better.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?

Chefs are nutters. They’re all self-obsessed, delicate, dainty, insecure little souls and absolute psychopaths. Every last one of them.
The painter leaves his mark. And I just put in two statues in Rhode Island that I’m working on. And I think that’s going to make me last longer than me.
Shaving my head was a millennium ritual, to not let it pass as just another New Year’s Eve. A lot has happened to me in the last couple of years, personally and spiritually. I wanted to mark it for myself.

In Jenny Offill’s remarkable first novel, ‘Last Things,’ 7-year-old Grace Davitt watches her mother, Anna, descend into madness and tries to make sense of the claustrophobic world that Anna has created for her.

Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
Then I would have an occasional cigarette and then I started back dipping. I started dipping last year. My family has asked me again to stop, and I’m trying my best to do that.

You are graduating from college. That means that this is the first day of the last day of your life. No, that’s wrong. This is the last day of the first day of school. Nope, that’s worse. This is a day.
There’s an academic tradition called the ‘Last Lecture.’ Hypothetically, if you knew you were going to die and you had one last lecture, what would you say to your students? Well, for me, there’s an elephant in the room. And the elephant in the room, for me, it wasn’t hypothetical.
And if you don’t believe the sun will rise, stand alone and greet the coming night in the last remaining light.

I used to get made fun of in the minor leagues. I’d be 0 for 2, and then in my last at-bat I’d hit a chopper that wouldn’t even reach the shortstop, and I’d get a hit out of it. The guys would be all over me, but a hit’s a hit. I’ll take 3,000 of ’em.
My wife and I tried two or three times in the last 40 years to have breakfast together, but it was so disagreeable we had to stop.

There is no training, classroom or otherwise, that can prepare for trading the last third of a move, whether it’s the end of a bull market or the end of a bear market.
We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world or to make it the last.
This isn’t meant to last. This is for right now.
The mobile phone is used from when you get up in the morning and is often the last thing you interact with at night.
Can you think of anything more permanently elating than to know that you are on the right road at last?
There may be as much nobility in being last as in being first, because the two positions are equally necessary in the world, the one to complement the other.
I rewrote the ending to ‘Farewell to Arms,’ the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied.
The last thing they want is a revitalized economy now. I’m not saying the Democrats don’t want a strong economy. Don’t misunderstand. They just don’t want it now.
I decide my future. I decide what I want to do. Nobody else. If I decide this will be my last year, maybe it is. If I decide it will be my last contract, I decide that. Nobody else. So I will decide when the moment is there.
What I’m always trying to say to the consumer is: buy less, choose well, make it last.
It is a pleasant thing to reflect upon, and furnishes a complete answer to those who contend for the gradual degeneration of the human species, that every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.
My last divorce was in ’68. What made it come to a head was a promise. See, I had promised her that the next year I wouldn’t work as much. But then I got in trouble with the IRS, and I had to continue working just as much to pay the government. So she said I lied, which is something I never did.
When I got married to my ex-wife, Jemma, I took my vows very, very seriously. I’ve been brought up with good values and I don’t go into anything thinking: this is just for the sake of it – it’s not going to last.
Coffee and smoking are the last great addictions.
We want Quora to last forever, and in order to last forever, it’s going to need to have revenue. One of the best things about ads is that you don’t need to exclude anyone.
If you’ve climbed the first 140 meters it doesn’t mean that you’ve succeeded; you are going to succeed by climbing the last 10 meters.
I’d rather be two strokes ahead going into the last day than two strokes behind. Having said that, it’s probably easier to win coming from behind. There is no fear in chasing. There is fear in being chased.
The average GOP presidential vote in these last five elections was 44.5 percent. In the last three, it was 48.1 percent. Give Romney an extra point for voter disillusionment with Obama, and a half-point for being better financed than his predecessors. It still strikes me as a path to narrow defeat.
I try to play every play like it’s my last.
I think I would have done very well as a writer in the Forties. I think the last time America was a great country was then or not long after. It was before Vietnam, before Watergate.
To go to the world below, having a soul which is like a vessel full of injustice, is the last and worst of all the evils.
The average man does not know what to do with this life, yet wants another one which will last forever.
Always remember the last words of my grandfather, who said: ‘A truck!’
We shall fight to the last to free our Motherland.
If it doesn’t reach the last poor man, your constitution is wrong.
I have friends who don’t even know I’m diabetic. I don’t hide it, but it’s the last thing I need to tell someone. I take my insulin with every meal and have kidney drugs twice a day, but that is, like, habit. That’s how I deal with it.
World War II was the last government program that really worked.
I’m happy to report you still get nothing you don’t need at Motel 6, and, therefore, you don’t have to pay for it. I don’t need valet parking. If I can drive the old crate 300 miles to the hotel all by myself, I can certainly handle the last nine feet to the parking space.
As a company, we have to be very transparent. We are in a business very related to finance, and I want this company to last long, and I want this company to be audited by everyone.
The entire North Polar ice cap is disappearing before our very eyes. It’s been the size of the continental United States for the last 3 million years and now 40 percent is gone and the rest of it is going.
Today we no longer regard the universe as the cause of our own undeserved troubles but perhaps, on the contrary, as the last refuge from the mismanagement of our earthly affairs.
The five warmest years over the last century occurred in the last eight years.
The longer a man’s fame is likely to last, the longer it will be in coming.
Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
People are too durable, that’s their main trouble. They can do too much to themselves, they last too long.
Let’s make a deal with the Serbs. Neither history nor emotion in the Balkans will permit multinationalism. We have to give up on the illusion of the last eight years… Dayton isn’t working. Nobody – except diplomats and petty officials – believes in a sovereign Bosnia and the Dayton accords.
They say I live a fast life. Maybe I just like a fast life. I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world. It won’t last forever, either. But the memories will.
Love is the last relay and ultimate outposts of eternity.
Treaties, you see, are like girls and roses; they last while they last.
Designs of purely arbitrary nature cannot be expected to last long.
From the beginning, Mandela and Tambo was besieged with clients. We were not the only African lawyers in South Africa, but we were the only firm of African lawyers. For Africans, we were the firm of first choice and last resort.
Fashion is harder than the film industry. You have to constantly be able to crank out hit after hit after hit on demand and on a very tight calendar. I’ve come back, I’ve lost it, I’ve come back again. It’s really as good as your last collection.
I think that burnout happens because of resentment. That notion that, ‘Wow, I worked 100 hours last week, and I couldn’t even have this thing that I really wanted.’
Honestly, I feel like I spent the last 10 years just trying to work, just get my hands on the best material I could. I’d like to say that it was quite calculated and genius, my ability to take one step forward and two steps back.
In my next life, I’m going to be a rock star. I was a ballerina in my last life.
I miss England. I miss the weather. I’ve spent moss of the last 25 years on tour. I’m ready to come home.
I like to keep things classic, not lavish or blinged out. I don’t even say that word. The last thing I want to be is over the top.
I was in Kashmir last weekend. Went to visit one of my sweaters.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
The last book I read was Noam Chomsky on anarchism; maybe I will become an anarchist.
In the 1980s America reacted to the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. We supported a war that left a nation torn to pieces. And as the last Soviet tank left the country, so did we.
I start where the last man left off.
Judgments, value judgments concerning life, for or against, can in the last resort never be true: they possess value only as symptoms, they come into consideration only as symptoms – in themselves such judgments are stupidities.
Publishers give you deadlines for those last phases of production that are perfectly comfortable for them. So, to whatever extent I can, I like to push those to give me a little more time, and make it so that they’re as uncomfortable as I am.
There’s a difference between being a comic and a comedian. A comic is a guy who says funny things, and a comedian is a guy who says things funny, and he has a style and point of view that will last much longer.
The trends that last and the trends that are relevant are the ones that make you look pretty.
Dad’s Jewish and Irish, Mom’s German and Scotch. I couldn’t say I was anything. My last name isn’t even Downey. My dad changed his name when he wanted to get into the Army and was underage. My real name is Robert Elias. I feel like I’m still looking for a home in some way.
Romania, which had the worst dictator in Eastern Europe, Ceausescu, he was a darling of the West. The United States and Britain loved him. He was supported until the last minute.
I recently took up ice sculpting. Last night I made an ice cube. This morning I made 12, I was prolific.
I’m always the last person in the world who would ever try to predict a trend.
A large social-media presence is important because it’s one of the last ways to conduct cost-effective marketing. Everything else involves buying eyeballs and ears. Social media enables a small business to earn eyeballs and ears.
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.
Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you’re in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad.
In this age of specialization, I sometimes think of myself as the last ‘generalist’ in economics, with interests that range from mathematical economics down to current financial journalism. My real interests are research and teaching.
Great loves, to the last, have pulses red; All great loves that have ever died dropped dead.
You are only as good as your last book, and so there has to be a book.
I did a film in Nairobi, Kenya called ‘The Last Elephant,’ with John Lithgow, Isabella Rosallini, and James Earl Jones. So I was in seventh heaven, alright? About a year later I get a call from my agent and he says they want to see you for this project called Candyman. I thought he was joking so I hung up.
I was on stage last night, and I gave a medical report about Donald Trump. I said he was hospitalized for an attack of modesty.
I’ve seen my mom confined to a wheelchair in the last three years of her life. Both her knees had given way, and there was no way she could undergo surgery at her age. Even though I was concerned for her, I didn’t know at that time what she had to go through.
