Mozart eliminates the idea of haste from life. His airs could not lag as they make their journey through the listener’s attention; they are not the right shape for loitering. But it is as true that they never rush, they are never headlong or helter-skelter, they splash no mud, they raise no dust.

Zig Ziglar
Ninety-five percent of the eggs produced in America come from factory-farmed birds. Even if free-range farms were hugely more humane, the sheer number of animals raised to satisfy people’s desire for eggs, meat, and milk makes it impossible for us to raise them all on small, free-range farms.

People think that their vote counts. They go to college, and everything gets mixed up. People stop caring, … They raise the gas prices, but what the Everyman makes and welfare never seem to keep up.

Shia LaBeouf
Astronomy is useful because it raises us above ourselves; it is useful because it is grand; …. It shows us how small is man’s body, how great his mind, since his intelligence can embrace the whole of this dazzling immensity, where his body is only an obscure point, and enjoy its silent harmony.

I were the little trifler once again,
Who could be pleas’d so lightly.

Pat O’Shane
How could you let him do this? (Shahara) I know you’re not going to pin this on me, Shay. I didn’t raise the embryo. You did. It’s what you get for teaching him things like honor, love, courage, and loyalty. If you’d left him a scared little snot-nose, he’d still be living in your basement. (Vik)

Phil Robertson
I do think it’s getting more and more rare in this country to raise a kid with the attitude that creativity is something valuable.

Adrian Tomine
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.

Desmond Tutu
If you have credit card debt and credit card companies continue to close down the cards, what are you going to do? What are you going to do if they raise your interest rates to 32 percent?

Suze Orman
When I raise money for the veterans, and it’s a massive amount of money, find out how much Hillary Clinton’s given to the veterans. Nothing.
Donald Trump
Men and women are different, but if women are good enough to run homes and raise children, then their influence ought to be good for politics.
Teresa Wright
I have always examined closely the motives of any group for which I am asked to raise money.
Kate Smith
When I was kid, yeah, my family, my parents wanted me to marry a Jewish girl because that was what they taught their children, and thought it would be an easier life for me to raise a Jewish kid. And I have a Jewish wife, I have a Jewish kid. They seem pretty happy about it.
Adam Sandler
Oh! how near are genius and madness! Men imprison them and chain them, or raise statues to them.
Denis Diderot
We must raise and train an army of fighters for freedom.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I once had a letter from a man who asked to do something very weird. He told me he wanted to sit on my shoulders and for me to then walk around his town to raise money for charity. He described himself as being 6ft and I was thinking, ‘I’m only 5ft 4in, and you want to sit on my shoulders?’ How bizarre.
Nikki Sanderson
In the context of a question regarding what an artist might be, I would want to raise the question of what a theorist might be, to signal how inextricably linked these existences and practices might be.
James Elkins
But as a young kid, I never did, really have an ambition to be a farmer. I never thought, gee, I would like to farm, and I want to raise these crops. I didn’t quite know what I wanted to do.
Sam Donaldson
In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them.
Alexis de Tocqueville
I finally understand / for a woman it ain’t easy tryin to raise a man / You always was committed / A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it / There’s no way I can pay you back / But the plan is to show you that I understand / You are appreciated
Tupac Shakur
The only way to save Social Security is to raise the retirement age.
Rand Paul
Raise boys and girls the same way.
Jenny Holzer
If an autoimmune disease can create symptoms that look exactly like schizophrenia, that raises the question, what is schizophrenia? And are there forms of schizophrenia that are caused by other types of autoimmune disease?
Susannah Cahalan
I guess the biggest issue my husband and I are going to have is how do we raise the baby… because he’s Jewish and I’m Protestant and the baby’s father is Catholic.
Bonnie McFarlane
There is no appeasing Putin. Frankly, there is no directly stopping him, either. It is only possible to raise the costs to him of his war, including the military costs. If we won’ВЂВ™t provide military materiel to Ukraine now, we deserve the contempt with which Putin regards us.
Rich Lowry
We are the people and America is really nothing without the people. We have to take control and we have realize as young people that this is our future. We have to live here and this where we’ll one day raise our own children.
Zendaya
Even though [bullying] doesn’t actually raise your stature, it might make you feel that way.
Rib Hillis
Why has there been so much secrecy about AIDS? When you ask where did the virus come from, it raises a lot of flags. That makes me suspicious.
Wangari Maathai
It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor.
George Bernard Shaw
We want to raise the art of living well.
Robert Mondavi
Cursed be all those on land and sea who eat their fill, cursed be all those who starve yet raise no hand in protest, cursed be all the bread, the wine, the meat which day by day descends deep in the entrails of the exploited man and turns not into freedom’s cry, the murderer’s ruthless knife!
Nikos Kazantzakis
Never raise expectations in others that you cannot realize: promise is less pleasing than disappointment is vexatious.
Norm MacDonald
The values that I have are the values I was raised with, from where I’m from, which is a middle-class place. So that informs everything about me, my politics and all that stuff. I mean, politically, I vote against my own self-interest at every election. I actively ask these people to raise my taxes.
Matt Damon
As long as Republicans won’t – won’t raise taxes and as long as Democrats won’t in any way make entitlements based on need, rather than just across the board, I really think that we’re doomed to this deadlock.
Mark Shields
Before negotiating a raise, start collecting a file of evidence showing how you’ve impacted the bottom line. … Don’t believe there’s no money in the budget. Don’t assume your boss knows how great you’ve been doing. Don’t threaten to leave — you may be given the opportunity.
Pat Heim
I shall develop the thesis that anyone acting communicatively must, in performing any speech act, raise universal validity claims and suppose that they can be vindicated.
Jurgen Habermas
America must raise an empire of permanent duration, supported upon the grand pillars of Truth, Freedom, and Religion, encouraged by the smiles of Justice and defended by her own patriotic sons.
Nathanael Greene
The Congress will push me to raise taxes, and I’ll say no, and they’ll push, and I’ll say no, and they’ll push again and I’ll say to them, read my lips, no new taxes.
George H. W. Bush
Want to raise children who will be happy adults? Teach them not to whine.
Dennis Prager
He will also find that the high and independent spirit, which usually dwells in the breast of those who are deeply versed in scientific pursuits, is ill adapted for administrative appointments; and that even if successful, he must hear many things he disapproves, and raise no voice against them.
Charles Babbage
The president says we need to raise the debt ceiling because America pays its bills. No if we paid our bills we wouldn’t have all this debt. The reason we have to raise the debt ceiling is because we can’t pay our bills and we have to borrow money because we don’t have any money to pay our bills.
Peter Schiff
Every time you do something, make something, it’s final in a way, but it’s not. It immediately raises a great set of questions. And if you become a question addict, which I am, you immediately have something you need to pursue.
Robert Irwin
I believe in living a poetic life, an art full life. Everything we do from the way we raise our children to the way we welcome our friends is part of a large canvas we are creating.
Maya Angelou
Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.
Mia Hamm
Because God says that he raises up and places all people in places of authority, it is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down.
Paula White
I have advocated for rolling back regulations, simplifying the tax code and moving to zero-based budgeting – policies that will support small businesses and raise up the middle class.
Carly Fiorina
She that would raise a noble love must find Ways to beget a passion for her mind; She must be that which she to the world would seem, For all true love is grounded on esteem: Plainness and truth gain more a generous heart Than all the crooked subtleties of art.
Theresa Villiers
What good are you? What can you do? It has cost me a thousands of dollars to raise you, feed you, clothe you! Suppose I left you here on the street? Then what would you do?” “Catch butterflies
Charles Bukowski
Flattery is no more than what raises in a man’s mind an idea of a preference which he has not.
Edmund Burke
You can’t raise a child to believe the opposite of what you do.
Cassandra Clare
Believe me: The day [Barack] Obama goes off, and he leaves, and goes out to the golf course for the rest of his life to play golf, when they raise interest rates, you’re going to see some very bad things happen, because the Fed is not doing their job. The Fed is being more political than Secretary [Hillary] Clinton.
Donald Trump
Flowers rejoice when night is done, Lift their heads to greet the sun; Sweetest looks and odours raise, In a silent hymn of praise.
Henry Van Dyke
If you’re mad at your kid, you can either raise him to be a nose tackle or send him out to play on the freeway. It’s about the same.
Bob Golic
There is often a simplistic view that HDL is good, so that anything that raises HDL is good for you, and anything that lowers it is bad for you. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Dean Ornish
Whoever raises a righteous child, it is as if he did not die.
Rashi
I’m always trying to challenge everyone to raise the game on the artistic level. We are supposed to be the best. Make sure we don’t get complacent or comfortable, and always trying to push the limit on trying to write great songs. At the end of the day it’s why we do what we do.
Michael W. Smith
I would like to live to a ripe old age and raise watermelons in Wyoming.
Lou Reed
Each time we bring to routine activities an awareness of ‘now,’ we raise our vibratory frequency and cause the freshness of the moment to fall upon us.
Michael Beckwith
Mississippi is like my mother. I am allowed to complain about her all I want, but God help the person who raises an ill word about her around me, unless she is their mother too.
Kathryn Stockett
The Democrats believe that if God did not want them to raise taxes, He would not have created the Internal Revenue Service.
Dave Barry
I am climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa this Summer as a personal physical goal for myself, but also as a way to bring on sponsors and raise awareness and funds to help benefit the programs and initiatives of Chefs for Humanity.
Cat Cora
Where you raise your children isn’t as important as how you raise your children.
Ryan Phillippe
We must resist wandering thoughts in prayer. Raising our hands reminds us that we need to raise up our minds to God, setting aside all irrelevant thoughts.
John Calvin
If it was true that moss did not have roots, and maternal love could grow spontaneously, as if from nothing, perhaps I had been wrong to believe myself unfit to raise my daughter. Perhaps the unattached, the unwanted, the unloved, could grow to give love as lushly as anyone else.
Vanessa Diffenbaugh
It’s true that (many) are praying for a worldwide revival. But it would be more timely, and more scriptural, for prayer to be made to the Lord of the harvest, that He would raise up and thrust forth laborers who would fearlessly and faithfully preach those truths which are calculated to bring about a revival.
Arthur W. Pink
Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids, in fact it’s cold as hell.
Elton John
My mom was an opera singer, and she gave up her career to raise a family. But she also taught my sisters how to sing.
Tika Sumpter
Be a father, if not, why bother, son?
A boy can make ’em, but a man can raise one.
If you did it, admit it and stick with it.
Ed O.G.
You can raise good children in single parent households, and many of you perhaps here today come from that type of environment. It is possible and many do it in heroic situations, but it’s much more difficult and the numbers move against us in a broad society.
Sam Brownback
I’ve seen young people raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix a problem in their community. I’ve seen young people raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to dig wells in Africa. I’ve seen young people pass laws, largely impacting their communities. They do have the power to change the world.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Through lack of education, we’re not teaching kids to read and write. So there is the danger that you raise up a generation of morons.
Ray Bradbury
For one thing, I think that there are questions which philosophers raise which, although science bears on them, are not typically the central focus of those who work in the sciences. At the same time, I don’t have a view of philosophy which marks it out as different in kind from scientific work
Hilary Kornblith
I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.
Barack Obama
The death of chief justice Rehnquist and the president’s nomination of John Roberts raises the stakes for the court and the American people exponentially.
Ralph Neas
You cannot raise a man up by calling him down.
William J. H. Boetcker
A great deal has been said about my commitment not to raise taxes. It’s a core value – it’s common sense – it’s important to keeping and growing jobs – and it’s mainstream!
Tim Pawlenty
Let’s raise our glass and let the hammer fly, yeah, this is the long good-bye.
Bruce Springsteen
With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relative, my children, my home. I have, therefore, resigned my commission in the Army.
Robert E. Lee
The Trump administration’s assault against the FBI’s efforts to assess a national security threat posed by suspected foreign agents only raises more questions about what went on in 2016.
Asha Rangappa
I have written the little work that follows . . . in the role of one who strives to raise his mind to the contemplation of God and one who seeks to understand what he believes.
Anselm of Canterbury
A small group of people, they raise the price of oil and the whole world will suffer from this.
Ahmed Zaki Yamani
Live your life. Do the dishes. Do the laundry. Take your kids to kindergarten. Raise your children and your grandchildren. Take care of the community in which you live. Make all of that your path, and follow your path with heart.
Dipa Ma
Reading is important. Books are important. Librarians are important. (Also, libraries are not child-care facilities, but sometimes feral children raise themselves among the stacks.)
Neil Gaiman
You live and you learn, man. I’ve learned you can’t wait on anybody. You have to raise your awareness yourself.
Big Sean
Mr. Gonzales’ failure to respond to questions legitimately posed to him by the Senate raises grave doubts in my mind as to his fitness to serve the people of the United States as their Attorney General.
Daniel Inouye
Lee was too cool by nature to rage at fate; his manner was to raise an eyebrow and greet it laconically.
Philip Pullman
The greatest sweetener of human life is Friendship. To raise this to the highest pitch of enjoyment, is a secret which but few discover.
Joseph Addison
Heaven and earth, all the emperors, kings, and princes of the world, could not raise a fit dwelling-place for God; yet, in a weak human soul, that keeps His Word, He willingly resides.
Martin Luther
Usually I don’t think much in terms of interesting sounds. Although I think I want to get one of those whammy pedals, I forget what it’s called and who makes it. It’s got a whole bunch of different settings. You can play a note and it will raise the pitch when you push the pedal.
Mike Gordon
A sense of a wider meaning to one’s existence is what raises a man beyond mere getting and spending. If he lacks this sense, he is lost and miserable.
Carl Jung
Simple fairness dictates that government must not raise taxes on families struggling to pay their bills.
Ronald Reagan
I raise this objection to debate the process, and protect the integrity of the true will of the people.
Stephanie Tubbs Jones
Oprah is signed on to help, and a lot of celebrity friends have agreed to help me raise money for Make-A-Wish. We want to make the world a better place for innocent children. I cried my heart out when my father died from cancer. I wish I was smarter, wiser like a doctor, to save these children from dying.
Criss Angel
I adopt a very simple approach. I observe and reflect real life and ordinary people and sooner or later that raises a laugh.
Alberto Sordi
Discomfort levels in our societies are rising, or so it would seem. In theory, we invoke diversity and tolerance. But in real life, we raise our hackles and withdraw into ourselves.
Tariq Ramadan
The costs can’t be borne by smaller counties particularly, so if the crime occurs in a large county you might be charged with the death penalty, in a smaller county you’re not. That raises some significant questions about fairness.
Greg Zoeller
But why should not the New Englander try new adventures – not lay so much stress on his grain, his potato and grass crop, and his orchards – and raise other crops than these? Why concern ourselves so much about our beans for seed, and not be concerned at all about a new generation of men.
Henry David Thoreau
You love each other – anyone can see that, looking at you – that kind of love that can burn down the world or raise it up in glory.
Cassandra Clare
The hitter asks the owner to give him a big raise so he can go somewhere he’s never been, and the owner says “You mean third base?”
Henny Youngman
The technologies that raise the fewest ethical problems are those that work on a human scale, brightening the lives of individual people.
Freeman Dyson
You have to raise the bar. Give yourself a challenge. Ask yourself, ‘How can one make the impossible materialise?’
Tim Walker
Romantic love allows you to focus mating energy. Attachment sustains that relationship as long as necessary to raise your baby.
Helen Fisher
To be sure an artist wishes to raise his standard intellectually as much as possible, but the man must remain in obscurity. Pleasure must be found in the studying.
Paul Cezanne
Friends in the Midwest often ask me what it’s like to raise a family in Los Angeles. I say it’s just like where they are, but warmer and with more traffic. I also tell them people here seem a bit more tolerant of those who are different.
Steven Levitan
The objector and the rebel who raises his voice against what he believes to be the injustice of the present and the wrongs of the past is the one who hunches the world along.
Clarence Darrow
The Fed’s low-interest policy not only encourages spending and borrowing, it discourages the one thing that best helps people raise themselves into higher economic classes — saving.
Mark Thornton
There is nothing sadder in this world than the waste of human potential. The purpose of evolution is to raise us out of the mud, not have us grovelling in it.
Andrew Schneider
Who says you cannot hold the moon in your hand? Tonight when the stars come out and the moon rises in the velvet sky, look outside your window, then raise your hand and position your fingers around the disk of light. There you goВ .В .В . That was easy!
Vera Nazarian
The Mafia is a question every time an Italian raises his head.
Mario Cuomo
I think there are many ways to raise great kids. From what I can tell, Ayelet Waldman’s kids are interesting, strong, and happy, and if that’s the case, that’s good parenting.
Amy Chua
When I started modelling, I’d raise my arms and it was all muscle and all the other models had nothing. Really, everybody thought I was a man. I don’t have to do much to have muscles. It’s just genetic.
Grace Jones
A twinge of wonderment that might charm the most cynical of New York dance fans…They raise the bar, and then they jump over it.
Jennifer Dunning
I love the 3D revolution. I love the technology today that continues to push the envelope, continues break the new ground, and continues to raise the bar.
Dwayne Johnson
New Zealanders who leave for Australia raise the IQ of both countries
Robert Muldoon
There are a lot of people who worked extremely hard in the election who are still organized who know how to do door to door and phone canvassing, who know how to raise money.
Patricia Ireland
Wind and solar power, energy efficient buildings, cars that go farther on a tank of gas, and other solutions can fight climate change. I know America can get on a more sustainable path – we just have to raise our voices and demand it.
Frances Beinecke
Fear is implanted in us as a preservative from evil but its duty, like that of other passions, is not to overbear reason, but to assist it. It should not be suffered to tyrannize in the imagination, to raise phantoms of horror, or to beset life with supernumerary distresses.
Samuel Johnson
If I was in Congress, I would not vote to raise the debt ceiling.
Sean Hannity
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
John Petit-Senn
I’m not sure I have a role model per se, but I do deeply admire every woman who raises children and has to walk for water.
Anna D. Shapiro
I did a little bit to raise the dignity and recognition of the greatness of African-American music.
Ahmet Ertegun
In Arizona we have passed laws to free our people so that they can defend themselves and their loved ones. You cannot predict where evil will raise its head, but you can be prepared for it.
Russell Pearce
My sun sets to raise again.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Strive with all your hearts, raise up your voices and shout, until this dark world be filled with light.
Abdu’l-BahГЎ
But whither am I strayed? I need not raise Trophies to thee from other men’s dispraise; Nor is thy fame on lesser ruins built; Nor needs thy juster title the foul guilt Of Eastern kings, who, to secure their reign, Must have their brothers, sons, and kindred slain.
John Denham
The man who raises new issues has always been distasteful to politicians. He musses up what had been so tidily arranged.
Walter Lippmann
I love my nation, I cannot see you degraded, weakened any more than you are now. Therefore I am bound for your sake and for truth’s to cry, “Hold!” and to raise my voice against this degradation of my race. Give up these weakening mysticism and be strong.
Swami Vivekananda
I want a song that raises the hair on the back of my neck when I sing it live and I want to feel it every time.
Zach Condon
You’re a man, but the day you raise your voice to your mother, you’re not anymore.
Tariq Ramadan
We ring the bells and we raise the strain
We hang up garlands everywhere
And bid the tapers twinkle fair,
And feast and frolic – and then we go
Back to the same old lives again.
Sarah Chauncey Woolsey
Come! Let us lay a lance in rest,
And tilt at windmills under a wild sky!
For who would live so petty and unblest
That dare not tilt at something ere he die;
Rather than, screened by safe majority,
Preserve his little life to little end,
And never raise a rebel cry!
John Galsworthy
Obviously, the Night’s King is clearly a symbol of something very unpleasant in our psyche, and he even raises wights from the dead, which is probably everybody’s worst fear, being actually used after we’re dead.
Richard Brake
My biggest blast-off hit was “You Raise Me Up.” If you ever have a wedding or a funeral, it’s a good pick.
Josh Groban
There are different ways to raise capital that were not available when I was growing my business.
Joe Mimran
It is always esteemed the greatest mischief a man can do to those whom he loves, to raise men’s expectations of them too high by undue and impertinent commendations.
Thomas Sprat
I’ve done a contract with my district. I have term-limited myself. I am not taking the pension. I am not taking pay raises, and my family and I are bringing our own health care to Washington, D.C. And my dad taught me as a kid to lead by example – Congress should not have anything better than the American people.
Bobby Schilling
And certainly, the mistakes that we male and female mortals make when we have our own way might fairly raise some wonder that we are so fond of it.
George Eliot
It’s amazing how important your job is when you want the day off – and how unimportant it is when you want a raise.
Robert Orben
No silver saints, by dying misers giv’n, Here brib’d the rage of ill-requited heav’n; But such plain roofs as Piety could raise, And only vocal with the Maker’s praise.
Alexander Pope
You must open a little, or rather raise on high your corolla so that the Bread of Angels may come as divine dew to strengthen you, and to give you all that is wanting to you.
Therese of Lisieux
only kindness that raises its head from the crowd of the world to say it is I you have been looking for, and then goes with you everywhere like a shadow or a friend.
Naomi Shihab Nye
I’m always running around trying to raise money to make the films. Fortunately, I’ve been able to do that, but if I can’t, at this point, it’s not like I wanted to spend a lot of time putting together, you know, you spend a year of your life on something, you go, “What the hell am I doing that for?”
Rob Reiner
Sometimes I find myself exploring very different and new fields but I have a very clear vision of what I would like to do and the questions I would like to raise.
Dror Benshetrit
Every band always tells you to raise your middle finger.
Patrick Stump
When it comes to pay raises, Congress always plays the role of Grinch. The bill extends an existing pay freeze for Vice President Joe Biden, specifically, and senior political appointees broadly.
Susan Davis
It’s good to raise awareness that men and boys are struggling, at least many of them are. But why say men are finished? It’s too harsh, too sweeping, and it happens to not be true.
Christina Hoff Sommers
In this arid wilderness of steel and stone I raise up my voice that you may hear. To the East and to the West I beckon. To the North and to the South I show a sign proclaiming: Death to the weakling, wealth to the strong!
Anton Szandor LaVey
Liberal of cruelty are those who pamper with promises; promisers destroy while they deceive, and the hope they raise is dearly purchased by the dependence that is sequent to disappointment.
Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann
Sinclair Lewis may be ripe for a revival; his books raise several interesting issues of art and fashion.
Jane Smiley
Go, all of you poor people, in the name of God the Creator, and let him forever be your guide. And henceforth, do not be beguiledby these idle and useless pilgrimages. See to your families, and work, each one of you, in your vocation, raise your children, and live as the good Apostle Paul teaches you.
Francois Rabelais
The laboratory evidence that carbohydrate-rich diets can cause the body to reain water and so raise blood pressure, just as salt consumption is supposed to do, dates back well over a century
Gary Taubes
The meaning of this observation is unclear, but it raises the unfortunate possibility of ambiguous triplets; that is, triplets which may code more than one amino acid. However one would certainly expect such triplets to be in a minority.
Francis Crick
Makeup can give you the confidence to…change your job, move abroad, get a pay raise.
Charlotte Tilbury
Individuals have rights and there are things no person or group may do to them (without violating their rights). So strong and far-reaching are these rights that they raise the question of what, if anything, the state and its officials may do. How much room do individual rights leave for the state?
Robert Nozick
Lance Guest in The Last Starfighter had such integrity and held himself to such a high standard that I just wanted to raise your own standard to meet it. He is a hard-working, giving actor. He made me feel secure and better in my role opposite him.
Catherine Mary Stewart
Never lose hope
when the beloved
sends you away.
If you’re abandoned
if you’re left hopeless
tomorrow for sure
you’ll be called again.
If the door is shut
right in your face
keep waiting with patience
don’t leave right away.
Seeing your patience
your love will soon
summon you with grace
raise you like a champion.
Rumi
Faith actually moves no mountains, but instead raises them up where there were none before.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Just a small-scale cult of personality, maybe raise a geodetic dome out in western Massachusetts and make people wear jumpsuits and give all their possessions to me.
John Hodgman
Everyone seems to want more form me. I am a thoroughly disappointing girl around. I shall wear a scarlet ‘D’ upon my bosom for all to see so that they will know not to raise their expectations.
Libba Bray
How many times did we hear [Barack] Obama say, ‘You didn’t build that. You didn’t build that – no, you need government.’ We even saw Hillary Clinton say – remember her phrase – ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ In other words, your children are not your children – they belong to the community.
Rafael Cruz
If explicit metadata is a real problem, it raises problems that just can’t be solved. It’s not that we’re not good at it; it’s the problems cannot be solved because we’re not going to agree about these deep questions of how we organize.
David Weinberger
Tens of thousands of men and women with kids to raise, bills to pay, and dreams that won’t die. This is your campaign.
Hillary Clinton
Certainly science, because of its ability to increase our capacities to do things, raises terrible risks for us all. If it were possible to undiscover nuclear fission, I would be very happy to undiscover it, because of the risks that it puts us all under.
Steven Weinberg
There’s an imperative to make sure you distinguish fiction from the fact, because if the fact is doing the work, why did you do fiction? And once you raise the question of why – why do fiction? – then you have to answer it in your text as a kind of enactment of the answer.
Fred D’Aguiar
If, at the end of the day, we need to raise taxes, we should raise taxes.
Paul Volcker
I’m determined to raise a strong girl.
Lisa Ling
I want to raise a family and have a couple of small Dirks running around. But it will not be easy to win my heart.
Dirk Nowitzki
If you raise a child, there’s no time, you can’t be a great parent.
Geoffrey Canada
I do a fair bit for children’s charities. The big ones I support in Liverpool are Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, and Claire House Children’s Hospice. I donate money and time but the time is what they value the most. If my inclusion at any event they’re doing, helps them to raise more money, then of course I’ll be there.
Robbie Fowler
Hillary Clinton are going to raise taxes and Donald Trump and I are going to cut them.
Mike Pence
If I Had My Child to Raise Over Again
Diana Loomans
Financial transaction tax raises problems of competition.
Jose Manuel Barroso
It is an axiom of political life that you never raise expectations, whether in a political or military campaign, because your defeats are then magnified and your victories discounted.
Charles Krauthammer
There’s a great deal of disturbance in this country and how black feel about what happened in Katrina, and, you know, many of the comics, many of performers are in Las Vegas and New Orleans trying to raise money for what happened there
Michael Richards
I have been extremely pleased to support the Trust’s work in the Lupus Unit ever since. Personal experience also motivated me to become involved to help raise the awareness of the disease and hopefully thereby improve the speed of diagnosis.
Elaine Paige
Conflict exists strictly as an opportunity to raise our consciousness.
Carl Jung
So, little by little, time brings out each several thing into view, and reason raises it up into the shores of light.
Lucretius
Love may be the answer, but even though you’re watching for the solution, intercourse raises some rather interesting thoughts.
Woody Allen
Brevity is the soul of command. Too much talking suggests desperation on the part of the leader. Speak shortly, decisively and to the point–and couch your desires in such natural logic that no one can raise objections. Then move on.
Cyrus the Great
Fear owns me because I let it. Because I obsess over it, name it, raise it, and nurture it to become perfect. It is one of the few things in my life that I can control.
Pete Wentz
The right answer on raises is you have to be formal. You have to be formal to save your own culture.
Ben Horowitz
Much of what candidates have to do is raise money and appeal to constituencies or interest groups that can provide that money.
Robert Scheer
Since there is no place large enough
to contain so much happiness,
you shrug, you raise your hands, and it flows out of you
into everything you touch. You are not responsible.
You take no credit, as the night sky takes no credit
for the moon, but continues to hold it, and share it,
and in that way, be known.
Naomi Shihab Nye
If you do not raise your eyes you will think that you are the highest point.
Antonio Porchia
I think the perception of wealth and power is that things just become easier and easier when in reality as you raise the stakes things become more stressful.
Sean Parker
I want to raise my kids, I want to get them through their teenage years. … I do love my work with the UN and with PSVI so if I can do more of that and be more effective I will do whatever I can.
Angelina Jolie
I feel privileged to be a U.N. ambassador. It gives me an opportunity to use my voice to help raise awareness about important social and environmental issues.
Gisele Bundchen
He who owns a wood of proper land in this country, and, in the face of all the personal riches of the day, only raises crabs and choke pears, deserves to lose the respect of all sensible men.
Andrew Jackson Downing
When we raise one hand to say “bye-bye” we are gesturing that we are going apart from each other, whereas when we join our palms and bow our head, our hearts become closer.
Mata Amritanandamayi
Any father whose son raises his hand against him is guilty of having produced a son who raised his hand against him.
Charles Peguy
Alexander Pope once wrote that the theater aspires to wake the soul by gentle strokes of art – to raise the genius and to mend the heart.
Kelsey Grammer

Carl Lewis
As soon as you raise a thought and begin to form an idea of it, you ruin the reality itself, because you then attach yourself to form.
D.T. Suzuki
These too are of a burning color–not orange, not gold, but if pure gold were liquid and could raise a cream, that golden cream might be like the color of the poppies.
John Steinbeck
There are two ways to be rich: to have more or need less. It’s estimated that we squander about 30 percent of our energy leaving the lights on, the refrigerator door open, and so on. Then there is the enormous amount of food that we expend huge amounts of energy to raise and then throw away.
Bill Nye
The sculptor must paint with his chisel; half his touches are not to realize, but to put power into, the form. They are touches of light and shadow, and raise a ridge, or sink a hollow, not to represent an actual ridge or hollow, but to get a line of light, or a spot of darkness.
John Ruskin
If dandelions were rare and fragile, people would knock themselves out to pay $14.95 a plant, raise them by hand in greenhouses, and form dandelion societies and all that. But, they are everywhere and don’t need us and kind of do what they please. So we call them weeds and murder them at every opportunity
Robert Fulghum
Flattery and insults raise the same question: What do you want?
Mason Cooley
This is the defining issue of our time. This is a make-or-break moment for the middle class and for all those who are fighting to get into the middle class.
Barack Obama
Socialists cry “Power to the people”, and raise the clenched fist as they say it. We all know what they really mean – power over people, power to the State.
Margaret Thatcher
My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That’d be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags.
Danica Patrick
My mama didn’t raise any fools and she didn’t raise any heroes.
Amanda Hocking
There’s weight on me to raise the bar, to carry on that legacy. But that’s what drives me. Making sure that no one ever forgets who the Wallendas are.
Nik Wallenda
My mission is to raise incomes for hard working middle class families. If you work hard and do your part you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead.
Bernie Sanders
Religion-freedom-vengeance-what you will, A word’s enough to raise mankind to kill.
Lord Byron
The point is to raise your voice and be heard to God. You really are just celebrating being in the presence of other people that believe the same things you believe.
Valerie June
Museums should be places where you raise questions, not just show stuff.
William Thorsell
Erotic practices have become diversified. Sex used to be a single-crop farming, like cotton or wheat; now people raise all kinds of things.
Saul Bellow
Crowdsourcing aid is a cunning way to work around the do-nothing corridors of official Washington. But it also raises complicated questions about the nature of humanitarianism and what it means for a ‘nation’ to help.
Anand Giridharadas
We live in a culture of a big me. We’re encouraged – we raise our kids to think how great they are, where we have to market ourselves to get through life. We’re in social media, where we broadcast highlight – highlight reels of our own lives on Facebook.
David Brooks
I think a Donald Trump presidency raises a new kind of version of conservatism which more closely resembles a kind of Father Coughlin, America first populism and nativism and isolationism, than the confident, modern, cosmopolitan, thoughtful, engaged conservatism of Ronald Reagan and Paul Ryan.
Bret Stephens
men are attracted to beauty because it indicates health and youth—no point mating with a sickly woman who won’t be around to raise the children.
Becca Fitzpatrick
What I’d love to do is work with kids in the U.S. to raise their awareness and encourage them to be global citizens. We’re all connected these days; we can listen to the same music as kids all around the world and share our ideas.
Jason Mraz
If you raise the bar and offer your best to others then you deserve the same or better. Sometimes you have to divorce people who add no value to your life because they have nothing to offer but drama.
Bindu
Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.
William Faulkner
To write music is to raise a ladder without a wall to lean it against. There is no scaffolding: the building under construction is held in balance only by the miracle of a kind of internal logic, an innate sense of proportion.
Arthur Honegger
For girls it raises your testosterone, so I try to have as much sex as possible before I fight.
Ronda Rousey
I did not come to Washington to raise the electricity rates by as much as $40 per month as this plan would do.
Greg Walden
There is something particularly appealing about teaching a subject that seems to deal with the lowest kind of relationships-accidents, ambulance chasing-because you can show students that these raise the most fundamental questions about the structure of society.
Guido Calabresi
Every time the good giants try to cut back on salt, sugar, fat calories, inevitably Wall Street raises its hand and is looking at the sales figures and the revenue and saying, ‘Thou shalt not result in any loss of profit.’ There’s huge continuing pressure on the food companies.
Michael Moss
What polluters do is raise the standards of living for themselves, while lowering the quality of living for everybody else, and they do that by escaping the disciplines of the free market.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
China should bury head to work diligently for 10 years and then raise head to face Japan.
Yuan Shikai
A good piece of art raises questions.
Rebecca Hall
Editors of conservative magazines aren’t out trying to raise money. The money is there; the cash reserves are in the bank.
David Brock
You have only one chance to raise your child.
Jackie Kennedy
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s gubernatorial campaign raises a series of fascinating questions, the most perplexing of all being why an international star of his stature would ever want to run in the first place
Michael Medved
Advertising prods people into wanting more and better things. Of course advertising makes people dissatisfied with what they have – makes them raise their sights. Mighty good thing it does. Nothing could be worse for the United States than 200,000,000 satisfied Americans.
Bernice Fitz-Gibbon
I love fiction. I like reading short stories. Cupcakes, pop songs, Polaroids, and short stories. They all raise and answer questions in a short space. I like Lorrie Moore. Amy Hempel. Tim O’Brien. Raymond Carver. All the heartbreakers.
Laurel Nakadate
In the third month, the sun rising, the Boar and the Leopard on the field of Mars to fight; The tired Leopard raises its eye to the heavens, sees an eagle playing around the sun.
Nostradamus
Jay Z got Cano a big raise, but he got him an extra 30-day vacation – and it’s called October.
Pete Rose
A mother’s got to be there to raise the children. That’s all there is to it. I feel badly for those mothers who work hard, and can’t do it all the time.
Eric Braeden
I plan to write more songs of my own, especially on behalf of the animals we needlessly raise for food, at their great expense, and at great expense to our precious, deteriorating planet.
Susan Schneider
When things get really bad, just raise your glass and stamp your feet and do a little jig. That’s about all you can do.
Leonard Cohen
An ‘almost gospel’ doesn’t raise a corpse.
Russell D. Moore
The ability to speak is a short cut to distinction. It puts a man in the limelight, raises him head and shoulders above the crowd.
Lowell Thomas
If we raise taxes on corporations, what incentive will they have to make money other than the fact that it’s the sole reason they exist.
Stephen Colbert
My doctors say the more I continue to push, the more I can continue to raise that bar, the better I can get.
Chris Pronger
An enlightened person raises the level of the consciousness of the entire community.
Phyllis Grissim-Theroux
We had a $10 billion budget deficit when we got here in January of 2003. We cut that budget deficit; we did not raise taxes; we came back in ’05, and we had an $8 billion surplus. That’s how fast it can happen.
Rick Perry
Alcohol raises the risk for cancer, and so drinking wine or hard liquor should be done in moderation, if at all.
Margaret Cuomo
The Bible itself is a book that constantly must be wrestled with and re-interpreted. … Bible interpretation is colored by historical context, the reader’s bias and current realities. The more you study the Bible, the more questions it raises. It is not possible to simply do what the Bible says.
Rob Bell
It always takes a man that never made much at any thing to tell you how to run your business, though. Like these college professors without a whole pair of socks to his name, telling you how to make a million in ten years, and a woman that couldn’t even get a husband can always tell you how to raise a family.
William Faulkner
We have to raise the status of girls and women in every country.
Gillian Anderson
Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.”
[Address at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg, South Africa, 23 November 2004]
Desmond Tutu
I’d love it if every company could give raises to the average worker for doing good work.
Shawn Achor
If our children are going to walk away from Christ, we need to raise them in such a way that they understand that to walk away from Jesus is to walk away from a life of faith, risk and adventure and to choose a life that boring, mundane and ordinary
Erwin McManus
True Love comes into being when you practice the highest possible love in the lowest possible place. There you deal with impossible people and try to raise them into the highest possible people by showing them the highest possible standard. There is where True Love can be found and can start.
Sun Myung Moon
We’re talking about should we increase taxes? Why not put a tax on carbon emissions. It would raise a lot of money, it would reduce the environmental damages in the future, it would solve so many problems, and it would be a much more constructive thing to do than to think about raising the income tax.
Robert F. Engle
[I]n order to raise a soul to the highest perfection, He allows it to pass through dryness, brambles, and combats, causing it thereby to honor the times of weariness in the life of His Son, Our Lord, who suffered various kinds of anguish and abandonment.
Vincent de Paul
To the sun Rome owes its underlying glow, and its air called golden – to me, more the yellow of white wine; like wine it raises agreeability to poetry.
Elizabeth Bowen
The American people want to raise the minimum wage. Every poll tells us that. That bill will not get to the floor of the Senate. The American people want to ask the rich to pay more in taxes. But the legislation that will get to the floor is tax breaks for billionaires.
Bernie Sanders
It’s not my business to raise anybody else’s kids. Mom and Dad got to do all that.
Juicy J
Each soul has its appointed doom. How is it you dare to raise a mortal boy so high – high enough to flout the gods? Bring godhead where a man may reach out and take it? growls Enlil, and lightning splits a clear blue sky.
Janet Morris
Jobs that cannot be delivered must never be promised. It’s unfair to raise people’s hopes that way.
Bill O’Reilly
I can believe a miracle because I can raise my own arm. I can believe a miracle because I can remember. I can believe it because I can speak and be understood by you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Too many people are setting up ways to raise money that are questionable.
Joe Vitale
The end of lower art is to please, the end of average art is to raise the top, the end of superior art is to free.
Fernando Pessoa
All of the western world raises its children uncircumcised and it seems logical that, with the extent of health knowledge in those countries, such a practice must be safe.
C. Everett Koop
I don’t care what job you get. I care about if you put people down or raise people up.
Nick Vujicic
Almost no one raises the real issue of tax avoidance, right? And of the rich just not paying their fair share.
Rutger Bregman
Forests in the tropics are cut to make pasture to raise beef for the American market. Our distance from the source of our food enables us to be superficially more comfortable, and distinctly more ignorant.
Gary Snyder
When our eyes are set on eternity, the news that someone has come to know the Savior means a great deal more than the news of a salary raise or the prospect of getting the latest high-tech gadget.
Randy Alcorn
Massachusetts became the first state to marry gay couples, though lawmakers say allowing gay couples to get married raises a lot of questions. You know, such as: does that best man invite both guys to the bachelor party?
Jay Leno
Newt Gingrich said that this executive producer is weird and it raises – does raise questions about possible conflicts. The FCC regulates NBC corporations can try to curry favor with the president by placing their products on the show [Celebrity Apprentice].
George Stephanopoulos
The realms of light exist everywhere forever. But it is up to an individual to raise their mind to a level of stillness at which they can perceive these most beautiful realms of light.
Frederick Lenz
the mother’s first job is to raise a daughter strong enough to outlast her.
Gail Caldwell
No matter how hard it is to raise the capital to do that, do everything in your power to buy every property you have occupied if you can. In the end, that will be worth quite a bit of money.
Joe Mimran
Do I walk? Have I feet still? I raise my eyes, I let them move round, and turn myself with them, one circle, one circle, and I stand in the midst. All is as usual. Only the Militiaman Stanislaus Katczinsky has died. Then I know nothing more.
Erich Maria Remarque
To be first in the Middle East is not enough. We must raise ourselves to the level of a great world power.
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Polo, racing and horse shows all are doing great work to help the farmer and rancher to raise better horses.
Will Rogers
In the face of this approaching disaster, it behooves men and women not yet overcome by war madness to raise their voice of protest, to call the attention of the people to the crime and outrage which are about to be perpetrated on them.
Emma Goldman
The man in ecstasy and the man drowning: both raise their arms.
Franz Kafka
The old notion that children are the private property of parents dies very slowly. In reality, no parent raises a child alone. How many of us nice middle-class folk could make it without our mortgage reduction
Marian Wright Edelman
All that is necessary to raise imbecility into what the mob regards as profundity is to lift it off the floor and put it on a platform.
George Jean Nathan
He’s a better person when she’s around, and isn’t that what friends are for, to raise you up and keep you at your best?
David Nicholls
Here we grow the flax and grain; here we raise the meat they eat, and the wool to keep them warm; we cut trees to build their houses and firewood to heat their stoves.
Ernest Poole
It’s not easy for me to raise my hand and send a boy off to die without talking about it first
Reginald Rose
The psychological pain–and the ethical shame–of American poverty are made greater by the fact that this country possesses the wealth and the energy to raise all children to a minimally decent standard of living.
Kenneth Keniston
It’s scary to make major changes, but we usually have enough courage to take the next right step. One small step and then another. That’s what it takes to raise a child, to get a degree, to write a book, to do whatever it is your heart desires.
Regina Brett
Have we not all about us forms of a musical expression which we can take and purify and raise to the level of great art?.
Ralph Vaughan Williams
You can raise her up a lady but there’s one thing you just can’t avoid.
Trace Adkins
The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science.
Albert Einstein
Take a yoga class, study different forms of self-discovery. Some people are crazy and fanatical, avoid them. People who are balanced and calm and introspective, associating with them will raise your energy level.
Frederick Lenz
Keep up the old standards, and day by day raise them higher.
John Wanamaker
If you really put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price. Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic.
Jean Sibelius
It’s such an honor to be representing the USA in an international beauty contest in spite of all the tragedy that’s happened in this country lately. I really hope that this this will raise everybody’s spirits a little.
Olivia Culpo
I grew up with heroes, people who made me aspire to raise my game, to dream bigger and I like to keep it that simple.
Mike Vallely
Let me tell you, it’s a lot easier to raise money for a governor. They have all kinds of business to hand out, road contracts, construction jobs, you name it.
Terry McAuliffe
Too much work, and no vacation, Deserves at least a small libation. So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses, Work’s the curse of the drinking classes.
Oscar Wilde
The policy that can strike only while the iron is hot will be overcome by that perseverance, which … can make that iron hot by striking and he that can only rule the storm must yield to him who can both raise and rule it.
Charles Caleb Colton
I will not raise taxes on anyone making $250,000 or less.
Hillary Clinton
Wars, however frequent and destructive they may be, have never been able to kill entirely the intellectual and moral sense which raises man above the beast.
Elie Ducommun
When you know you are of worth, you don’t have to raise your voice, you don’t have to become rude, you don’t have to become vulgar; you just are. And you are like the sky is, as the air is, the same way water is wet. It doesn’t have to protest.
Maya Angelou
If you are spending too much, you cut back on spending and you raise your revenues. And that’s it.
Charles Rangel
It is easier to raise the performance of one leader than it is to raise the performance of a whole mass.
Peter Drucker
The capitalist has this over the politician and the clergyman; he has in practice done more to raise the standard of living of the poor than all the government and church programs in history….Monsanto and the Archer Daniels Midland Company have fed more hungry people than all the…soup kitchens combined.
Dinesh D’Souza
The Globe reports that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il raises money by selling fake Viagra pills. What it is about this guy? None of his missiles seem to launch.
Jay Leno
The euro will raise the citizens’ awareness of their belonging to one Europe more than any other integration step to date.
Gerhard Schroder
As far as innovation goes, I can tell you that Korean students are reluctant to step out of line. If I ask questions, nobody raises their hands – not because they don’t know the answers, but because they don’t want to step out of line.
Dan Shechtman
Raise the roof, that I might see the stars
To gain wisdom, to see things for what they are
Please, I need proof
Barry Privett
My father always used to say, “Don’t raise your voice. Improve your argument.”
Desmond Tutu
Taxes are like abortion, and not just because both are grotesque procedures supported by Democrats. You’re for them or against them. Taxes go up or down; government raises taxes or lowers them. But Democrats will not let the words “abortion” or “tax hikes” pass their lips.
Ann Coulter
The man I am will always raise a protest against the man I wanted to be and the two will live together to the end, but the man I wanted to be will be the one on whom judgement will be passed.
Julien Green
There is no reason, in a free society, that farmers shouldn’t be allowed to raise hemp. Hemp is a good product.
Ron Paul
I believe that companies, doing business in a responsible and sustainable way, can help raise the quality of life and standards of living in some of the poorest parts of the world
Antony Burgmans
Philosophy cannot raise the commonalty up to her level: so, if she is to become popular, she must sink to theirs.
Augustus William Hare
I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m not going to raise a child to do that.
Clay Aiken
Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor.
Adam Smith
Fasting cures diseases, dries up bodily humors, puts demons to flight, gets rid of impure thoughts, makes the mind clearer and the heart purer, the body sanctified, and raises man to the throne of God.
Athenaeus
Things are very rudimentary as far as women’s rights really go here, and it seems fine, but once you start scraping the surface, you start to see the ripple effect of how not having equal rights is so detrimental and how many mothers are single parents trying to raise their families.
Patricia Arquette
The big discoveries raise questions that make astronomers work feverishly and argue with an agitation that verges on rudeness.
Nigel Calder
One of the topics that [Pope Francis] wants to raise, according to many Vatican analysts, is given the shortage of – worldwide shortage of priests is the possibility of a married priesthood. But he needs more backing from his bishops right now.
Sylvia Poggioli
When Donald Trump raises money for the party, raises money, a lot of that money goes to the party, and that’s fine. If you’re doing a door-knocking program, for example, in Wisconsin, it also helps Ron Johnson who’s running for senate. It helps the congressional candidates.
Kellyanne Conway
Don’t raise the bar and narrow the gap, but narrow the gap to raise the bar.
Andy Hargreaves
The most interesting thing in the world is another human being who wonders, suffers and raises the questions that have bothered him to the last day of his life, knowing he will never get the answers.
Will Durant
Take a stand for what’s right. Raise a ruckus and make a change. You may not always be popular, but you’ll be part of something larger and bigger and greater than yourself. Besides, making history is extremely cool.
Samuel L. Jackson
When you raise the price of employment, guess what happens? You get less of it. Why do we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people?
John Boehner
While his history of depression is compatible with suicide… and the location and direction of the stab wounds are consistent with self-infliction, several aspects of the circumstances (as they are known at this time) are atypical of suicide and raise the possibility of homicide.
Elliott Smith
If Stephen Harper took off his shirt in public, I’m not sure he’d raise any money for charity.
Margaret Trudeau
We want to raise our children so that they can take a sense of pleasure in both their own heritage and the diversity of others.
Fred Rogers
The nice thing about money is that you can do good things with it. I still feel like if something needs to be done or we need to raise money for someone on death row, we can find ways to do it.
Eddie Vedder
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
Rumi
In 1980, a well-meaning fundraiser came to see me and said, “Miss Graham, the most powerful thing you have going for you to raise money is your respectability.” I wanted to spit. Respectable! Show me any artist who wants to be respectable.
Martha Graham
The key to maintaining your inspiration in the day-to-day work of meditation practice is to approach it as play—a happy opportunity to master practical skills, to raise questions, experiment, and explore.
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Theatre within theatre, when characters sees themselves on stage, always raises philosophical questions of choice and free will.
Mark Ravenhill
I’m trying to raise the awareness of the troops that, when they deploy and go to war, it’s not just them at war – it’s also their family. Their family is having to go through all the hardships and the stresses.
Chris Kyle
Even though I’m a hype man myself, I like the practicality of it all. People who understand how to turn a profit. At the end of the day, this is still business so I’m looking for real practical knowledge of how to actually make money, not necessarily raise it.
Gary Vaynerchuk
On the farm, I had chores. I had a calf. We had a herd of cattle in the pasture. We’d go and get me a calf at a cow auction with Amish people, which I would raise. I gave it a bottle every day, in this cute little coop, like a giant dog coop almost. I’ve always been a big animal person.
Krysten Ritter
To try and raise a budget for a film that is strictly for adults and both strong and graphic in content is not easy, especially when there is pressure to spend serious money on good special effects.
Dario Argento
I didn’t raise Todd to be a writer, but he happened to be one anyway
Anne McCaffrey
When they talk about raising your taxes, I think raise the taxes on some of these countries that are taking advantage of the United States.
Donald Trump
If you don’t raise the bar, how will you ever know your potential?
L. Tom Perry
While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos.
Barack Obama
Average leaders raise the bar on themselves; good leaders raise the bar for others; great leaders inspire others to raise their own bar.
Orrin Woodward
In all fairness to the auction companies ? most companies are not car experts, they are marketers. I caution buyers to make sure that they have done their homework before they raise their hand and not after.
Mark Hyman, M.D.
When you’ve seen a lot of bad stuff and just want to enjoy your life and be happy and have your kids happy and have your friends happy, you just have a value system where it raises the bar on what’s important.
Bob Saget
Question authority; but, raise your hand first.
Alan Dershowitz
Singular indeed the people should be writhing under oppression and injury, and yet not one among them to be found, to raise the voice of complaint.
Abraham Lincoln
Don’t let anybody raise you. You’ve been raised.
Maya Angelou
We really are at the crossroads and [disarmament] will happen if people of goodwill all over the world raise their voices and take action to let the governments of the world know that’s what they want.
Jody Williams
As I’ve often said, Wisconsin’s greatest strength continues to be the dedicated, hardworking people of our state. They go to work everyday, pay their taxes, and raise their kids with good, Midwestern values.
Jim Doyle
My first job as a kid was going from door to door selling Christmas cards, to raise money for my grandmother’s hip replacement. Because, you know… You break it, you buy it.
Emo Philips
Dreadful experiences raise the question whether he who experiences them, is not something dreadful also.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Vast, colossal destiny, which raises man to fame, though it may also grind him to powder!
Friedrich Schiller
At home in South Africa I have sometimes said in big meetings where you have black and white together: ‘Raise your hands!’ Then I have said: ‘Move your hands,’ and I’ve said ‘Look at your hands – different colors representing different people. You are the Rainbow People of God.’
Desmond Tutu
High heels can literally raise your
status because you’re taller when you wear them.
Helen Fisher
Philosophy, though unable to tell us with certainty what is the true answer to the doubts which it raises, is able to suggest many possibilities which enlarge our thoughts and free them from the tyranny of custom.
Bertrand Russell
We have a lot of evidence on what happens when you raise the minimum wage. And the evidence is overwhelmingly positive: Hiking the minimum wage has little or no adverse effect on employment while significantly increasing workers’ earnings.
Paul Krugman
Oh God, if you want women to never again raise their voices, then create an adult man!
Jean Giraudoux
I would like to raise my glass to friendship between Russia and the United States.
Richard Lugar
When you raise girls, you’re raising children for strangers.
Maxine Hong Kingston
You want to know the way to raise money? Put a transaction fee on Wall Street, so maybe we can curb some of the speculation and raise some money.
Bernie Sanders
We find that Good and Evil happen alike to all Men on this Side of the Grave; and as the principle Design of Tragedy is to raise Commiseration and Terror in the Minds of the Audience, we shall defeat this great End, if we always make Virtue and Innocence happy and successful.
Joseph Addison
As a concept [androgyny] raise[s] anxiety levels by conjuring up a conformist, unisex vision, the very opposite of the individuality and uniqueness that feminism actually has in mind.
Gloria Steinem
A raise is like a martini: it elevates the spirit, but only temporarily.
Daniel Seligman
I found that the death penalty  –  and I’m not a hot-button issue person, you know, I’m not a single issue person  –  but what I think drew me to the death penalty is because it raises some very deep, fundamental questions like: Is anybody beyond redemption?
Shane Claiborne
I wish all critics, no matter their color, were more sophisticated when it comes to the moral questions a film like ‘St. Anna’ is trying to raise.
James McBride
But finding these 16 warheads just raises a basic question: Where are the other 29,984? Because that is how many empty chemical warheads the U.N. Special Commission estimated he had – and he has never accounted for.
Richard Armitage
I think, as women, we have to stop being scared to be the women we want to be and we have to raise our daughters to be the women they want to be – not the women we think they should be.
Jada Pinkett Smith
There is certainly the intention of efforts like the Common Core to raise education standards and make sure that every student masters advanced math concepts – algebra, geometry, statistics and probability.
Anya Kamenetz
No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.
Simone de Beauvoir
If four years of university can increase your effectiveness of what you can do for others in the name of Christ, it is the best investment that you can make. But if the education is simply to get a job to make a lot of money, you have to raise the question of why you’re doing it.
Tony Campolo
Your virtue raises your glory above your crime.
Pierre Corneille
Give us this day our daily taste. Restore to us soups that spoons will not sink in and sauces which are never the same twice. Raise up among us stews with more gravy than we have bread to blot it with… Give us pasta with a hundred fillings.
Robert Farrar Capon
The act of getting married, stripped of the necessity to have a secure setting to raise children, seems to me no less grim than registering your emotions with the government.
Harry Shearer
In speech after speech on his health care plan, the President has tried to convince us that what he is proposing will be good for America. But, how can it be good for America if it raises taxes by a half trillion dollars and costs a trillion dollars or more to implement?
Scott Brown
Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.
Ralph Marston
Take those kids and raise them up, teach them how to drink out of a righteous cup.
James Brown
If you have birds, or if you’re a herpetologist and raise reptiles – you look in those eyes, and there is nothing there that’s human. I mean, they don’t think like us, they don’t see the world like us.
Stephen R. Bissette
These days people don’t search for the Truth. People study simply in order to find knowledge necessary to make a living, raise families and look after themselves, that’s all. To them, being smart is more important than being wise!
Ajahn Chah
I felt like you can write forever, but you have a short time to raise a family. And I think a family is a lot more important than writing.
Ken Kesey
I came to realize that we don’t raise boys to be men, we raise them not to be women.
Don McPherson
Oftentimes when you have the federal government or others step in and start to raise minimum wage, what happens is you take away or reduce some people’s opportunity to grab the bottom rung of the economic ladder to get the opportunities and the skills that you need to move up that economic ladder.
Kevin Madden
It is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back. We need more than a plan for the big banks. The middle class needs a raise. And we need more jobs.
Hillary Clinton
The Bankers’ New Clothes makes a simple, powerful argument: that banks need to raise more capital. It is entirely persuasive that the extent of their leverage makes the financial system fragile, and it clearly and patiently demolishes all the counter-arguments made by the banks and their lobbyists.
Diane Coyle
To be human is to have one’s little modicum of romance secreted away in one’s composition. One never ceases to make a hero of one’s self, (in private,) during life, but only alters the style of heroism from time to time as the drifting years belittle certain gods of his admiration and raise up others in their stead.
Mark Twain
Enduringly successful people, many of whom live a life that’s a gift to the world, don’t raise balance as a major issue-not because they had it masterfully handled, but because they were all busy doing what mattered to them.
Jerry I. Porras
There are more obese people in the world than starving people. As China and India start to develop our eating habits – and not by accident but because agribusiness is going over there and imposing our habits on them – if the population doesn’t increase at all, we’ll have to raise twice as many animals as we do.
Jonathan Safran Foer
An adversarial family law system raises the stakes unnecessarily high, exacerbates the antagonism of the couples concerned, and is directly responsible for making it impossible for couples who would otherwise have reconciled to do so.
Louis de Bernieres
It is incumbent upon us all to raise the bar, whether you are a multibillion-dollar international corporation or a mom-and-pop selling blackberry jam.
Howard Schmidt
My God, I could raise a family of six children and hold down a full-time job with all the energy I expend on depression!
Elizabeth Wurtzel
In today’s global economy, however, it is important to raise the bar of excellence even higher. Today’s students must be prepared to compete effectively on an international level.
Kenny Marchant
Our family has been honored to serve our state and nation. Like many American families, we have been fortunate and blessed to raise three wonderful children and put them through college while doing work that we love.
Mike Pence
It’s hard for a black man to raise a family.
Snoop Dogg
There is a Japanese proverb that literally goes ‘Raise the sail with your stronger hand,’ meaning you must go after the opportunities that arise in life that you are best equipped to do.
Soichiro Honda
Everything that you do or say that raises the self-esteem of another raises yours as well.
Brian Tracy
I’m ambitious in the sense that I raise the bar high for myself.
Darren Criss
A mere copier of nature can never produce any thing great, can never raise and enlarge the conceptions, or warm the heart of the spectator.
Joshua Reynolds
I will raise up prophets to make conflicting pronouncements that inevitably will be garbled in transcription, resulting in mutually exclusive definitions of orthodoxy from which the open-minded will flee in dismay.
Sheri S. Tepper
Life is not an easy matter… You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.
Leon Trotsky
If a tax on malt would raise the price of beer, a tax on bread must raise the price of bread.
David Ricardo
Father, show me how to praise Thee When I seek Thy courts to-day; Guide me by Thy love, and raise me — Let me feel the words I say. Bless me on this hallowed morning, Bid my soul to Thee draw near; Teach me, and my heart shall listen — Speak, Lord, and Thy child shall hear.
Sarah Doudney
I want my permanent address to be in Oklahoma. Someday, when I get married and I have kids, that’s where I want to raise my kids.
Carrie Underwood
Humanity and Immortality consist neither in reason, nor in love; not in the body, nor in the animation of the heart of it, nor in the thoughts and stirrings of the brain of it;–but in the dedication of them all to Him who will raise them up at the last day.
John Ruskin
How often have I actually discovered in myself that enthusiasm raises the artist above himself, how in an ordinary mood one would not have been able to accomplish many of the things for which enthusiasm lends one everything, energy, fire.
Clara Schumann
Article 50 is very poorly written and raises more questions more answers.
Gina Miller
Perfect prayer does not consist in many words, but in the fervor of the desire which raises the heart to Jesus.
Mother Teresa
Beauty is not the divine in a cloak of physical reality; no, it is physical reality in a cloak that is divine. The artist does not bring the divine on to the earth by letting it flow into the world; he raises the world into the sphere of the divine.
Rudolf Steiner
If government could create jobs and raise children, socialism would have worked.
George Gilder
I can’t raise the bar of others if I haven’t raised the bar for myself.
John C. Maxwell
We seldom get into trouble when we speak softly. It is only when we raise our voices that the sparks fly and tiny molehills become great mountains of contention.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.
Evita Peron
I am aware that I am extremely fortunate that I was born to parents who had the personal resources to raise me in a relatively safe environment and that I have some social supports that keep me from the streets. I’m aware that I could easily be in their stead, but there by the grace of luck go I.
Marilyn Dumont
Everything about me is so odd: I look weird. I have a nasal voice. I’m arrogant. my singing raises the dead from the grave. I am inspired by Altaf Raja, as one report mentioned, and so much more. I have stopped fighting all these rumours and remarks.
Himesh Reshammiya
[On Alfred Hitchcock:] Hitch is a gentleman farmer who raises goose flesh.
Ingrid Bergman
Dementia is often regarded as an embarrassing condition that should be hushed up and not spoken about. But I feel passionately that more needs to be done to raise awareness, which is why I became an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Kevin Whately
Mother is the first word that occurs to politicians and columnists and popes when they raise the question, ‘Why isn’t life turning out the way we want it?
Mary Blakely
The reason that minorities and women dont have a better shot at getting elected to the Senate or to statewide office is because the campaign finance rules are so skewed as to make it very difficult for non-traditional candidates to raise the money necessary to get elected.
Carol Moseley Braun
Ignorant men raise questions that wise men answered a thousand years ago.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Abortion raises moral and spiritual questions over which honorable persons can disagree sincerely and profoundly. But those disagreements did not then and do not now relieve us of our duty to apply the Constitution faithfully.
Harry A. Blackmun
I want to make all kinds of movies. I do want to make big movies that are a lot of fun to go to, but I also want to make movies that are going to stimulate some thought and maybe raise some awareness.
Nicolas Cage
we raise them for us; that means we owe them some respect. nature is creul but we dont have to be. i wouldnt want to have my guts ripped out by a lion. i’d much rather die in a slaughter house if it were done right.
Temple Grandin
Come ye thankful people, come, Raise the song of Harvest-home!
Henry Ford
Destroy it. There may be a redistribution of the land, but the natural inequality of men soon re-creates an inequality of possessions and privileges, and raises to power a new minority with essentially the same instincts as the old.
Will Durant
When you raise taxes on small business, from 35% to 40%, you will kill jobs.
Mitt Romney
If I thought that raising the minimum wage was the best way to help people increase their pay, I would be all for it, but it isn’t. If you raise the minimum wage, you’re going to make people more expensive than a machine. And that means all this automation that’s replacing jobs and people is only going to be accelerated.
Marco Rubio
I’m not a tough boss in that I don’t raise my voice, I don’t freak out, and I don’t have a temper most of the time.
Rachel Zoe
The thirst for equality can express itself either as a desire to draw everyone down to one’s level, or to raise oneself and everyone else up.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The artist must try to raise the level of taste of the masses, not debase himself to the level of unformed and impoverished taste.
Diego Rivera
Sometimes I just wanted to raise my hands and stop. But stop what? Maybe just growing up.
Patti Smith
When you strike a blow, do not let your mind dally on it, not concerning yourself with whether or not it is a telling blow; you should strike again and again, over and over, even four or five times. The thing is not to let your opponent even raise his head.
Yagyu Munenori
You see, we’ll never be able to compete in the 21st century unless we have an education system that doesn’t quit on children, an education system that raises standards, an education that makes sure there’s excellence in every classroom.
George W. Bush
The artist must raise the cup of his vision aloft to the gods in the high hope that they will pour into it the sweet mellow wine of inspiration.
Paul Brunton
What Cable is up to is not something that can be done quietly. It will raise the interest of some pretty important people and leaders in the X-Men community will have to step in at some point in the storyline.
Jeph Loeb
It is vital that we raise awareness of the risks faced by drug misusers.
Ian McCartney
I know that if I say something that’s considered outrageous, a group will take it, create an email blast, and use me to raise money or to do whatever, to build their profile.
Greg Gutfeld
Now you ask a group of young women on the college campus, ‘How many of you are feminists?’ Very few will raise their hands because young women don’t want to be associated with it anymore because they know it means male-bashing, it means being a victim, and it means being bitter and angry.
Christina Hoff Sommers
What kind of crops do they raise in the towns? Only Grand Dukes, Bolsheviks and drunkards!
Ernest Poole
Each succeeding generation of Gods follow the example of the preceding ones: each generation have their wives, who raise up from the fruit of their loins immortal spirits: when their families become numerous, they organize new worlds for them. [T]hey place their families upon the same.
Orson Pratt
All my life I have worked to be able to earn my living, but I thought that one could do good painting without attracting attention to one’s private life. Certainly, an artist wishes to raise himself intellectually as much as possible, but the man must remain obscure. The pleasure must be found in the work.
Paul Cezanne
He who blinded by ambition, raises himself to a position whence he cannot mount higher, must thereafter fall with the greatest loss.
Niccolo Machiavelli
It may at first appear strange, but I believe it is true, that I cannot by means of money raise a poor man and enable him to live much better than he did before, without proportionably depressing others in the same class.
Thomas Malthus
There’s a standard of songwriting that, when you start immersing yourself in those types of songs, it raises your own bar as a songwriter. There’s also simplicity in the songwriting. It’s much harder to be simple than it is to be complicated.
Sinead O’Connor
Pneumococcus is a fairly common cause of pneumonia and [raises the] risk of death in older adults.
Paul A. Offit
I’m proud that I was able to use my recognition to, maybe, raise the awareness of skateboarding and help grow it, and to help fund public skateparks. That’s the legacy, just trying to grow the entire sport.
Tony Hawk
A lot of people in the media say that Donald Trump goes golfing too much, which raises a very important question: Why do you care? Do you want to know what he’s not doing when he’s golfing? Being president. Let the man putt-putt!
Hasan Minhaj
There are so many people, so many artists, so many magazines, so many theater companies, so many people trying to raise money for so many things that it’s easy to look around and just feel powerless or helpless, because even if you have some resources, you can’t help everybody.
Amanda Palmer
It’s silly for me to raise expectations too much, but I think I’m right on the basic trend, which is shifting power to consumers.
Steve Case
Philosophy may raise us above grandeur, but nothing can elevate us above the ennui which accompanies it.
Francoise d’Aubigne, Marquise de Maintenon
I don’t know that there is a, quote, ‘hip-hop lifestyle.’ I think the music responds to complex social issues and injustices; I think it also raises complex social questions.
Ilyasah Shabazz
Which always raises the interesting question of whether redheads pursue other redheads in a narcissistic way, or simply, because they have no other choice, as nonredheads aren’t interested.
Emily Giffin
Money follows mission, not the reverse. This is a shorthand way of saying that the stronger the congregation’s relational characteristics, the easier it is to raise money. The stronger the congregation’s mission, visitation, groupings, leadership, and decision making, the stronger the giving.
Kennon Callahan
If you raise your gaze, you don’t see the boundaries anymore.
Thomas Muller
President Obama wants to raise taxes on the country’s richest people. And you thought Donald Trump hated him before.
Jay Leno
Mothers – especially single mothers – are heroic in their efforts to raise our nation’s children, but men must also take responsibility for their children and recognize the impact they have on their families’ well-being.
Evan Bayh
To try to raise a son from inside the prison walls is a very difficult thing. But I want to say to the world my son at 16 was the one who tried the most to get me out of prison.
Jim Bakker
Let our information and social technologies raise awareness and not propaganda, build connections and not passive-aggression.
Criss Jami
Societies raise their grandest monuments to what their cultures value most highly. As the tallest buildings in a city noted for tall buildings, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were certainly monumental.
Michael Mandelbaum
Hope is the most sensitive part of a poor wretch’s soul; whoever raises it only to torment him is behaving like the executioners in Hell who, they say, incessantly renew old wounds and concentrate their attention on that area of it that is already lacerated.
Marquis de Sade
I wish my parents had raised me in Manhattan because I think it’s the greatest thing you can do for a kid is to raise them in New York City. I can see this with my own children.
Woody Allen
If we are not peaceful, if we are not feeling well in our skin, we cannot demonstrate real peace, and we cannot raise our children well either.
Nhat Hanh
I go farther, and say, that it is plainly our duty to desire pastors and teachers to take the care of such congregations, and that God did raise up such in the church as we see it in the word.
John Nelson Darby
Silence is a beautiful fresh water tank to raise the trout of thought.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
There are glimpses of heaven to us in every act, or thought, or word, that raises us above ourselves.
Robert Quillen
In order to deal with all the medical cost demands and other challenges in the U.S., as we look to raise that revenue, the rich will have to pay slightly more. That’s quite clear.
Bill Gates
Everything starts with prayer. Love to pray-feel the need to pray often during the day and take the trouble to pray. If you want to pray better, you must pray more. The more you pray, the easier it becomes. Perfect prayer does not consist of many words but in the fervor of the desire which raises the heart to Jesus.
Mother Teresa
I asked one retailer, I said, “Let me ask you, are you going to raise prices next year?” They looked at me and said, “Not only are we not going to raise prices, we’re going to have to lower prices, increase the quality of the goods, and turn the inventory quicker.”
Ken Moelis
Anything that we can do to raise personal savings is very much in the interest of this country.
Alan Greenspan
Most troublesome is the legalization of ‘crowd funding,’ the ability of start-up companies to raise capital from small investors on the Internet.
Steven Rattner
I can take $15,000 a year and raise kids on that. Later, they’ll figure out I’ve got millions, but hopefully they’ll have the values to say, ‘So what?
Bode Miller
The Go Red for Women campaign raises awareness of the risk of heart disease. I think a lot of people don’t realize that heart disease is the number one killer of women. So what we’re doing is encouraging women to tell five other women to learn more about heart disease and how they can prevent it.
Cheryl Hines
MoMA is doubling its space, and I decided to raise the money for it.
David Rockefeller
Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.
Kurt Vonnegut
In manufacturing, where mechanization and the use of chemical processes are much easier, it is easier to raise productivity than in services. In contrast, by their very nature, many service activities are inherently impervious to productivity increase without diluting the quality of the product.
Ha-Joon Chang
India has progressed to a stage where a divorcee status hardly matters. What matters is that you raise a positive, independent, well-behaved and intelligent child.
Karisma Kapoor
The bottom line is that five million low-income Americans working full time for minimum wage, deserve a raise.
Jim Clyburn
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s gubernatorial campaign raises a series of fascinating questions, the most perplexing of all being why an international star of his stature would ever want to run in the first place.
Michael Medved
My advice to seniors – and I consider myself one – is to first and foremost take care of your body. Secondly, find something where you could say, “I’m helping somebody else.” And it may be just helping raise a grandkid. Or teaching a child to read – one child to read.
George W. Bush
At a time of massive inequality, I think we can raise substantial sums of revenue to address the needs of working families, the elderly, and the children, by asking those people who are doing phenomenally well to start paying their fair share.
Bernie Sanders
Prayer is not designed to inform God, but to give man a sight of his misery; to humble man’s heart, to excite his desire, to inflame his faith, to animate his hope, to raise his soul from earth to heaven.
Adam Clarke
Never raise your hand menacingly, but only in a friendly gesture!
Sophie von La Roche
How many of you believe in telekinesis? Raise my hand.
Mark Twain
Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Guess what? Yes we do.
Joe Biden
Its always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out.
Lindi Ortega
A man loves a woman so much, he asks her to marry – to change her name, quit her job, have and raise his babies, be home when he gets there, move where his job is. You can hardly imagine what he might ask if he didn’t love her.
Gabrielle Burton
Mama and Papa are more to blame (for delinquency) than the kids; parents should stay home and raise their children and spend less time in taverns.
Harry S. Truman
If I can raise attention to a cause, I will.
Booboo Stewart
Anyone who supported Bernie Sanders who thinks we should raise the minimum wage, who thinks that we should have universal health care coverage, who thinks that the wealthy have not paid their fair share, and I could go on and on, would certainly not find that Donald Trump’s views are in line with theirs.
Hillary Clinton
I think we really feel like Crowdrise could be something that, 20 years from now, people take for granted because that’s just how you do it, like if you’re going to raise money for something, that’s how you do it.
Edward Norton
I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we need to do not just to raise the debt limit. Raising the debt limit is the easiest thing. That’s one vote away. The hard thing is to show the world we are serious about putting our spending in order so we can show people we’ll able to pay our bills down the road.
Marco Rubio
Without danger I cannot be great. That is how I pay for Abel’s blood. Danger and fear follow my steps everywhere. Without them courage would have no sense. And it is courage, courage, courage that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor.
George Bernard Shaw
If I want to pursue the art of painting – or music or writing or sculpture – it requires only my time and a few dollars for materials. If, however, I want to produce a motion picture I have to go out and raise a million dollars!
Orson Welles
I should like to elbow aside the established pieties and raise my martini glass in salute to the mortal arts of pleasure.
Bob Shacochis
How many people here have telekenetic powers? Raise my hand.
Emo Philips
The legislator is like the navigator of a ship on the high seas. He can steer the vessel on which he sails, but he cannot alter its construction, raise the wind, or stop the waves from swelling beneath his feet.
Alexis de Tocqueville
You want to raise your child in such a way that you don’t have to control him, so that he will be in full possession of himself at all times. Upon that depends his good behavior, his health, his sanity.
L. Ron Hubbard
There is nothing that so raises a young man’s self-esteem, that so contributes to the formation of his character as for him to find himself unexpectedly confronted with a task which he has to accomplish entirely on his own initiative and by his own efforts.
Stefan Zweig
Whenever a conscious Black woman raises her voice on issues central to her existence, somebody is going to call her strident, because they don’t want to hear about it, nor us. I refuse to be silenced and I refuse to be trivialized, even if I do not say what I have to say perfectly.
Audre Lorde
Growing up in Georgia, I used to think people up north or out west were so different. They’re really not. They’re just regular people who live in small towns. They grow up and try to raise families and have a job and go to church and play softball. It’s that way everywhere.
Alan Jackson
The thing that fascinates me is that the way I came to film and television is extinct. Then there were gatekeepers, it was prohibitively expensive to make a film, to be a director you had to be an entrepreneur to raise money.
Tom Hooper
Here’s to new beginnings,” Stuart says and raises his bourbon. I nod, sort of wanting to tell him that all beginnings are new.
Kathryn Stockett
Though builders may build, in the main they follow the plans of architects. Teachers teach, but they must have a text. Politicians govern, but only upon the flow of commentary that raises them up or casts them down.
Mark Helprin
My mom raise me so wonderfully. She gave me self esteem and made me appreciate my flaws, as well as my strengths.
Kirsten Dunst
I would love to continue in music, with writing… but I am not the kind of person who will hang around if I start to become irrelevant. If that happens, I will bow down gracefully, raise my kids, and have a garden. And I am going to let my hair go gray when I am older. I don’t need to be blonde when I’m 60!
Taylor Swift
The Islamic State is able to raise finances through taxation, through theft of banks, and certainly through oil sales from the Omar oilfields in eastern Syria. So right now the question of funding isn’t of the essence.
Vijay Prashad
Artists raise their kids differently. We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love. So I think you can see how artists in some way raise other artists.
Angelina Jolie
Freedom consists not in refusing to recognize anything above us, but in respecting something which is above us; for by respecting it, we raise ourselves to it, and, by our very acknowledgment, prove that we bear within ourselves what is higher, and are worthy to be on a level with it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Don’t cry Don’t raise your eye Its only teenage wasteland.
Pete Townshend
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
Sebastian [ Vettel] can also learn to be more laid-back. It’s never too late to learn. He’s got some way to go. He’s young and will turn out well. I’m not worried about that. He’ll raise the bar ever higher.
Niki Lauda
I cannot raise my worth too high; Of what vast consequence am I! “Not of the importance you suppose,” Replies a Flea upon his nose; “Be humble, learn thyself to scan; Know, pride was never made for man.
John Gay
Local tax increases can cause high-net-worth individuals to move, tax experts said; tax avoidance and tax arbitrage are multitrillion-dollar affairs, and rich people are sensitive to tax rates. But many of the people who move when their home state raises taxes are close to retirement anyway.
Annie Lowrey
I believe that love is the choice we make to raise ourselves and others to the highest planes of existence.
Richard Paul Evans
Knock, And He’ll open the door Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.
Rumi
Gentlemen lacking substantial sympathy with their leader found it to be comfortable to deceive themselves, and raise their hearts at the same time by the easy enthusiasm of noise.
Anthony Trollope
There are hardly any apprenticeships in care; hardly any schools preparing teenagers for jobs in care; and few signs that politicians know what to do to raise the status and rewards for what will soon be one of our most important industries.
Geoff Mulgan
Trade has played a vital role in the social evolution of humankind. It allowed people to specialise, which raises both skill levels and efficiency. It brought people from different lands together, co-operating rather than competing over resources.
Julian Baggini
People don’t take you seriously if you scream, if you raise your voice, especially when you’re a 19-year-old girl.
Taylor Swift
By giving our audience intimate access to the lives of musicians, we hope to raise awareness of the region’s beautiful cultural heritage and present a more nuanced portrait of its people.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
The only way to increase it is to cultivate your own garden. And the only thing that will help you is poetry, which is the most concentrated form of style…. I don’t care how clever the other professor is, one can’t raise a discussion of modern prose to anything above tea-table level.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Any nominations a movie gets helps to raise the level of curiosity in the public, so in that sense awards and nominations are important.
Viggo Mortensen
Warfare has been marvelously developed. It will soon be impossible to raise it to further heights.
Fredrik Bajer
Some pretences daunt and discourage us, while others raise us to a brisk assurance.
Joseph Glanvill
I think that you try to raise the bar on whatever you do because you know, in this day of having to deal with a lot of reality TV, people say that scripted programming is dying, so you have to try to create something that can live in people’s minds, long after they see it.
Kevin Costner
If God should desire to raise us to the position of one who is an intimate and shares his secrets, we ought to accept this gladly.
Teresa of Avila
If we increase spending, we have got to raise taxes or any combination.
Bobby Scott
I thank God, that if I am gifted with little of the spirit which is able to raise mortals to the skies, I have yet none, as I trust, of that other spirit which would drag angels down.
Daniel Webster
You’re a monster. Thanks. Does this mean I get a raise? No, just a medal. The budget isn’t inexhaustable.
Orson Scott Card
When everybody has got money they cut taxes, and when they’re broke they raise them. That’s statesmanship of the highest order.
Will Rogers
For, in the language of Heraclitus, the virtuous soul is pure and unmixed light, springing from the body as a flash of lightning darts from the cloud. But the soul that is carnal and immersed in sense, like a heavy and dank vapor, can with difficulty be kindled, and caused to raise its eyes heavenward.
Plutarch
What is capable of restoring enthusiasm and confidence, what can encourage the human spirit to rediscover its path, to raise its eyes to the horizon, to dream of a life worthy of its vocation – if not beauty?
Pope Benedict XVI
РЎertainly to the extent that we talk about not just procurement in the sense of acquiring goods from the rest of the economy, even to the extent that it is possible to bring Black players in areas where we say we need to raise the capacity of these organisations to deliver services, it is a very important part.
Thabo Mbeki
In some remote regions of Islam it is said, a woman caught unveiled by a stranger will raise her skirt to cover her face.
Raymond Mortimer
A man without ambition is worse than dough that has no yeast in it to raise it.
Henry Ward Beecher
What is it with you today?” says Christina on the way to breakfast. Her eyes are still swollen from sleep and her tangled hair forms a fuzzy halo around her face. “Oh, you know,” I say. “Sun shining. Birds chirping.” She raises an eyebrow at me, as if reminding me that we are in an underground tunnel.
Veronica Roth
I play to lift a city, and raise a banner.
Prince Fielder
I believe in giving rewards and positive reinforcement for a job well done, but can we raise ourselves a little higher than the dogs and give rewards that have longer-term benefits? How can a poor food choice be a true reward anyway?
Jill Johnson
The question I hate the most is “How did you DO it – write novels and raise your children simultaneously!” I mean, do MALE authors get asked that??
Jodi Picoult
You’ve got to nip things that can be detrimental in the bud, even if this raises a few eyebrows or invites some opposition.
Ravi Shastri
Let’s tell the truth. Mr. Reagan will raise taxes, and so will I. He won’t tell you. I just did.
Walter F. Mondale
Most firms are hierarchical in nature, with everyone getting different slices of the economic pie. The problem is those slices are negotiated every time a firm raises a new fund, so in between funds, which is most of the time, the partners are trying to outgun one another to make a stronger case for themselves.
Bill Gurley
As democracy modifies our conception of life, it constantly raises the value and function of each member of the community, however humble he may be.
Jane Addams
Remember this Saying, ‘That the good Paymaster is Lord of another Man’s Purse.’ He that is known to pay punctually and exactly to the Time he promises, may at any Time, and on any Occasion, raise all the Money his Friends can spare.
Benjamin Franklin
The mercy of Jesus is not just sentiment: indeed it is a force that gives life, that raises man up!
Pope Francis
If you cut a thing up, of course it will smell. Hence, nothing raises such an infernal stink at last, as human psychology.
D. H. Lawrence
I’m very much for making everything safe. The more natural the means we use to raise our vegetables and get rid of bugs, the better.
Julia Child
Smee! Raise the Ladies!
Dave Barry
Of all the questions about the future of leadership that we can raise for ourselves, we can be certain in our answer to only one: ‘Who will lead us?’ The answer, of course, is that we will be lead by those we have taught, and they will lead us as we have shown them they should.
William C. Richardson
The hapless wit has his labors always to begin, the call for novelty is never satisfied, and one jest only raises expectation of another.
Samuel Johnson
What’s missing in the musical theater is producers willing to nurture new work, raise the money and put it on.
Harold Prince
I think you have to be a little bit strict. You can’t be friend and their parent in a lot of situations, especially in this day and age where it’s so dangerous for kids. So there’s a bit of sternness, I guess, in the way I raise my kids.
Tim McGraw
I think when guys watch me play, I think that raises the level of other guys because of the way I play the game.
Charles Woodson
The need to raise itself above humanity is humanity’s main characteristic.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
I’m going to cut taxes big league, and you’re going to raise taxes big league, end of story.
Donald Trump
Horses raise what the farmer eats and eats what the farmer raises. You can’t plow the ground and get gasoline.
Will Rogers
The soul helps the body, and at certain moments raises it. It is the only bird that sustains its cage.
Victor Hugo
What are you grateful for right now? Gratitude can shift your energy, raise your vibration, and make all your next moments even better.
Joe Vitale
So small, so blue, in grassy places / My flowers raise / Their tiny faces.
Cicely Mary Barker
To holy people the very name of Jesus is a name to feed upon, a name to transport. His name can raise the dead and transfigure and beautify the living.
John Henry Newman
It is a thing of no great difficulty to raise objections against another man’s oration, it is a very easy matter; but to produce a better in it’s place is a work extremely troublesome.
Plutarch
Well, we certainly need to raise the retirement age. I’ve told my 19-year-old and my 22-year-old that they’re not going to be getting retirement benefits at age 62.
Ken Buck
The healthy spirit of self-help created among working people would, more than any other measure, serve to raise them as a class; and this, not by pulling down others, but by levelling them up to a higher and still advancing standard of religion, intelligence, and virtue.
Samuel Smiles
If you raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires, you’ll do nothing to address the debt and the deficit. And the thing you might do is you might finally put this economy over another cliff. These millionaires and billionaires are the folks that try to create jobs and help grow the economy.
Joe Walsh
I have a feeling that being in love sometimes means the projection of your desires onto another person. The important thing is that you like the other person, respect the other person and want to raise children with the other person.
Eric Braeden
Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found.
Bill Nye
We learned not to meet anymore, We don’t raise our eyes to one another, But we ourselves won’t guarantee What could happen to us in an hour.
Anna Akhmatova
We need to in this country begin again to raise civil discourse to another level. I mean, we shout and scream and yell and get very little accomplished, but you can disagree very much with the next guy and still be friends and acquaintances.
Leah Ward Sears
Yeah, sometimes life really sucks. But you know what I’m holding on for? The moments that don’t suck. The trick is to notice them when they come around.
Veronica Roth
Action helps you think and raises your self-esteem. Good luck happens when you’re in action. Ask yourself, “Does this go toward or away from what I want?” There’s an animal in us, and it has great instincts. Scan for a desire and follow it. Set a goal, any goal, and start doing everything you can think of to achieve it.
Barbara Sher
The growth that we want is one that brings real benefits to the people, raises quality and efficiency of development, and contributes to energy conservation and environmental protection.
Li Keqiang
When a child is given to his parents, a crown is made for that child in Heaven, and woe to the parents who raise a child without consciousness of that eternal crown!
Fulton J. Sheen
You can imagine thistle-down so light that when you run after it your running motion would drive it away from you, and that the more you tried to catch it the faster it would fly from your grasp. And it should be with every man, that, when he is chased by troubles, they, chasing, shall raise him higher and higher.
Henry Ward Beecher
Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work and raise our families-or whether we do these things at all.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
We want to raise a generation of kids who have a mouse in one hand and a book in the other.
Henry Jenkins

Tim Gunn
It may take a village to raise a baby, but hell! it takes an army to produce a book.

Zig Ziglar
I didn’t raise my kids with the fear of God.
Denis Leary
An artist is someone who should raise questions rather than give answers. I have no message.
Michael Haneke
I was raised by my grandmother. She instilled everything into me. She taught me right from wrong from day one. I remembered everyday, being 4 or 5 years old, and walking to school, she would be like, Raise your right hand and stay on the right side of the street and make sure you do the right thing in school.
Nick Cannon
If you can raise money, you’re never going to have trouble getting a job.

Alexander Pope
There’s something in life that’s a curtain, and I keep trying to raise it.
Maxine Hong Kingston
Much certainly of the happiness and purity of our lives depends on our making a wise choice of our companions and friends. If our friends are badly chosen they will inevitably drag us down; if well they will raise us up.
Eric Lubbock, 4th Baron Avebury
Before Elijah could raise a nation from the dead, he raised just one dead child.
Lou Engle
My hope is that I can somehow raise the level of consciousness about world events.
Lisa Ling
See nations slowly wise, and meanly just, to buried merit raise the tardy bust.
Samuel Johnson
Let us not esteem worldly prosperity or adversity as things real or of any moment, but let us live elsewhere, and raise all our attention to Heaven; esteeming sin as the only true evil, and nothing truly good, but virtue which unites us to God.
Gregory of Nazianzus
The biggest revenue target is the preferential rate for long-term capital gains, which raises a perennial question: Why should capital income be taxed at a much lower rate than ordinary income? Capital assets are owned overwhelmingly by the rich.
James B. Stewart
He who wishes to exert a useful influence must be careful to insult nothing. Let him not be troubled by what seems absurd, but concentrate his energies to the creation of what is good. He must not demolish, but build. He must raise temples where mankind may come and partake of the purest pleasure.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’ll be a nun, raise my daughter, and make albums.
Brandy Norwood
And it raises a fundamental question: How long can we move the world in one direction while we move in another direction, and do we want to backslide into an era that we finally emerged from where we had a nuclear weapon for every tactical mission?
John Spratt
Creating breathing room financially may lower your standard of living but raise your quality of life.
Andy Stanley
Typically the person who raises the money, or puts up the money to start the business, owns the lion’s share of the business. So learn how to sell and keep learning. It will usually be your own fear that you have to overcome.
Robert Kiyosaki
I think there’s a number of pillars to success. One is you’ve got to have a great idea. The other is you’ve got to have a constituency, you’ve got to have finance, and you’ve got to be able to raise awareness.
Jeremy Gilley
Man is born a barbarian, and only raises himself above the beast by culture.
Baltasar Gracian
Past experience with fiscal austerity at home and overseas strongly suggests that it is best for the economy’s long-run performance to restrain government spending rather than raise taxes.
Mark Zandi
Equity capital is expensive. Every time you do a raise, you dilute.
Fred Wilson
Peace is only possible if men cease to place their happiness in the possession of things “which cannot be shared,” and if they raise themselves to a point where they adopt an abstract principle superior to their egotisms. In other words, it can only be obtained by a betterment of human morality.
Julien Benda
If Mr. [Donald] Trump is up 10 or 15 points on Election Day and ends up losing, then, you know, maybe he can raise some questions. That doesn’t seem to be the case at that moment.
Barack Obama
Superstition always inspires littleness, religion grandeur of mind; the superstitious raises beings inferior to himself to deities.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
Americans tend not to be too enthusiastic about having their taxes raised again….But if the American people aren’t going to accept it, if the politicians don’t have the courage to raise taxes, what are we facing down the road?
Judy Woodruff
I’ve always felt that improv looks and feels more clever when you’re there to experience it live than when you have the degree of separation that television creates. Television raises expectations.
Alan Thicke
At that point the child is eligible for adoption and can be placed with a family that can love the child and can raise the child.
Henry Ford
Helping raise money for kids – there’s nothing better than that.
Tim Tebow
It is a general maxim that all governments find a use for as much money as they can raise. Indeed, they have commonly demands for more…I take this as a settled truth, that they will all spend as much as their revenue; that is, will live up to their income.
James Smith
Do not give a war cry, do not raise your voices, do not say a word until the day I tell you to shout. Then shout!
Joshua
John Kerry is busy trying to raise money right now for his campaign. It was reported today that Kerry’s hoping to raise $80 million before the Democratic convention. That’s a lot of money. Yeah, Kerry has two ways to raise the $80 million: soliciting Democratic donors and going through his wife’s purse.
Conan O’Brien
Nebraskans are known for giving of themselves and that quality is part of what makes our state such a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.
Dave Heineman
I had a party to raise money, spent 15 grand on the party alone. People ate, drank and left. I thought all these bigwig ballplayers would give; you know I had all the big players come. Nothing, I lost money on that party. I think maybe someone put like $400 in the pot or something. I was like come on, throw me a bone!
Terry Crews
If you want a significant man, with absolutes, morality, and meaning, then you must have what the Bible insists upon – that God will judge men justly, and they will not be able to raise their voices because of the base upon which He judges them.
Francis Schaeffer
All those who believe in psychokinesis – raise my hand.
Steven Wright
Only passions, and great passions, can raise the soul to great things. Without them there is no sublimity, either in morals or in creativity. Art returns to infancy, and virtue becomes small-minded.
Denis Diderot
The idea of eternity lives in all of us. We thirst to live in a belief which raises our small personality to a higher coherence – a coherence which is human and yet superhuman, absolute and yet steadily growing and developing, ideal and yet real.
Christian Lous Lange
When you become very ill – raise your head. You will definitely see the sunlight.
Drew Barrymore
I love working with children and this young boy, Thomas Sangster, is quite a remarkable young actor. He raises your game, you know. He certainly raised mine.
Liam Neeson
The people who tend to raise antiwar slogans will do so generally when it’s American or British interests involved.
Christopher Hitchens
Ireland is a little country which raises all the great questions.
Gustave de Beaumont
The Jews’ guilt of the crucifixion of Jesus consigned them to perpetual servitude, and, like Cain, they are to be wanderers and fugitives. The Jews will not dare to raise their necks, bowed under the yoke of perpetual slavery, against the reverence of the Christian faith.
Pope Innocent III
One hundred thousand dollars was the bridge that enabled me to go on TV, not miss a beat or miss an opportunity, and raise then my own money to carry me forth. And that’s how I got to be the first Democratic woman in the United States Senate’s history.
Barbara Mikulski
I always say that a successful parent is one who raises a child so that they can pay for their own psychoanalysis.
Nora Ephron
Among the many acts of gratitude we owe to God, it may be accounted one to study and contemplate the perfections and beauties of His work of creation. Every new discovery must necessarily raise in us a fresh sense of the greatness, wisdom, and power of God.
Jonathan Edwards
If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a whole agency to make a successful campaign.
David Guerrero
The Fed wants to raise rates because they’ve been yelling and screaming about it. They’ve been crying wolf for so long that their credibility is shot, and I think they feel they need to.
Gary Shilling
When life is so harsh that a man loses all hope in himself, then he raises his eyes to a shining rock, worshipping it, just to find hope again, rather than looking to his own acts for hope and salvation. Yes, atheism IS a redemptive belief. It is theism that denies man’s own redemptive nature.
Isaac Asimov
Everyone who believes in telekinesis, raise my hand.
James Randi
People who tend to invest are either going to invest in something where you’re raising $5 million or they’re going to invest in something where you’re raising $1 million, but if you’re trying to raise $2.5 million it’s kind of a weird amount.
David Plotz
By enlivening this most basic level of life, Transcendental Meditation is that one simple procedure which can raise the life of every individual and every society to its full dignity, in which problems are absent and perfect health, happiness, and a rapid pace of progress are the natural features of life.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
The most important thing … is the name of the Lord. The name of the Lord will be glorified. I want to let the people know that there is a God who can raise people from nothing into something. And that’s me. I came from nothing into something.
Manny Pacquiao
Money is a wonderful invention. It lets us save, it lets us specialize, right? I couldn’t be a professor if there wasn’t any money. Every day I would have to raise chicken and bread and broccoli and go ahead and spend all my time trading. So, money is a wonderful mechanism.
Dan Ariely
Whatever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves… how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.
Leigh Hunt
And so I wait. I wait for time to heal the pain and raise me to me feet once again – so that I can start a new path, my own path, the one that will make me whole again.
Jack Canfield
No man can ever raise above that that which he aims.
Archibald Alexander Hodge
There’s nothing that can’t be done if we raise our voice as one.
Michael Jackson
It is more important for Labour to raise the reputation of politics than for the Tories, who are only in politics for the money.
Frank Dobson
Christianity is not a law of bondage; and if it respect the hand of God which sometimes raises up tyrants, it draws up where obedience degenerates into guilty cowardice.
Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire
The CEO era gave rise to the CFO (not certified flying object, as you might imagine, but chief financial officer) and, most recently, the CIO, chief investment officer, a nice boost for the bookkeeper you can’t afford to give a raise . . .
William Safire
Abstract work, if one wishes to do it well, must be allowed to destroy one’s humanity; one raises a monument which is at the same time a tomb, in which, voluntarily, one slowly inters oneself.
Bertrand Russell
Covertly invest into non-White areas, invest in ghetto abortion clinics. Help to raise
money for free abortions, in primarily non-White areas. Perhaps abortion
clinic syndicates throughout North America, that primarily operate in
non-White areas and receive tax support, should be promoted.
Margaret Sanger
That which is to be most desired in America is oneness and not sameness. Sameness is the worst thing that could happen to the people of this country. To make all people the same would lower their quality, but oneness would raise it.
Stephen Samuel Wise
You must rouse into people’s consciousness their own prudence and strength, if you want to raise their character.
Luc de Clapiers
I can tell you that solitude Is not all exaltation, inner space Where the soul breathes and work can be done. Solitude exposes the nerve, Raises up ghosts. The past, never at rest, flows through it.
May Sarton
My icons do not raise up the blessed savior in elaborate cathedrals. They are constructed concentrations celebrating barren rooms. They bring a limited light.
Dan Flavin
Most of the major increases in the debt ceiling have been accompanied by structural changes in the way we raise and spend money.
Charles Bass
We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown.
John Calvin
Materialism has cast man into such depths that a mighty concentration of forces is necessary to raise him again. He is subject to illnesses of the nervous system which are veritable epidemics of the life of the soul.
Rudolf Steiner
Demanding abrupt and expensive changes in public policy raises fair questions about ideological intentions.
Bret Stephens
I had to put the company through a reorg, raise a new round of financing, and sort of press the restart button. But my feeling was that I wasn’t going to be bullied. I wasn’t going to let them take me down. I had to pull myself together and move forward.
Tamara Mellon
Let’s also, my friends, let’s raise the minimum wage and support the 5 for 15 so you don’t live in poverty.
Hillary Clinton
But music raises a lot of issues. Music is something that matters to people a lot, and they put a lot of passion into it. And I think when you have an area like that, you’re gonna find a lot of issues coming up.
Kurt Loder
One of the happiest days of my life is when I made five or six hundred pesos from a crop of watermelons I raise all on my own.
Emiliano Zapata
Nothing raises the national temperature more than a VACANCY sign hanging from the colonnaded front of the Supreme Court.
Christopher Buckley
Look well to the characters and qualifications of those you elect and raise to office and places of trust.
Matthias B. Tallmadge
It’s so important to raise people to grow up to be who they are and not be forced to be who they’re not. What an awful thing to do to people – it’s like being in prison.
Marlo Thomas
Having been an educator for so many years I know that all a good teacher can do is set a context, raise questions or enter into a kind of a dialogic relationship with their students.
Godfrey Reggio
President Obama’s proposal to raise the top rate to 39 percent is equal to the rate under President Clinton in the 1990s when Wall Street reached record high levels and the economy produced lots of jobs.
Juan Williams
And why does this same God tell me how to raise my children when he had to drown his?
Robert Green Ingersoll
Every pleasure raises the tide of life; every pain lowers the tide of life.
Herbert Spencer

Rib Hillis
The whole dream of democracy is to raise the proletarian to the level of stupidity attained by the bourgeois.
Gustave Flaubert
Religion is for the man in humble life, and to raise his nature, and to put him in mind of a state in which the privileges of opulence will cease, when he will be equal by nature, and may be more than equal by virtue.
Edmund Burke
I am on record as saying that we need to put more money into the Social Security Trust Fund. That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy.
Hillary Clinton
The only way to stop a rebellion is to crush it with blood and fire, and to wound them so they’ll never dare to raise a hand again.
Rachel Caine
You will do the greatest service to the state if you shall raise, not the roofs of the houses, but the souls of the citizens: for it is better that great souls should dwell in small houses rather than for mean slaves to lurk in great houses.
Epictetus
Creative Arts raise a person to another level of consciousness as if you could imagine life before words.
Charlie Haden
Most mother-women give up whatever ghost of a unique and human self they may have when they ‘marry’ and raise children.
Phyllis Chesler
Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn’t tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly.
James Surowiecki
Concept is what makes actors raise their game.
Joe Dempsie
The only thing that looks good is the stock market, but if you raise interest rates even a little bit, that’s going to come crashing down.
Donald Trump
We should raise the national minimum wage.
Hillary Clinton
Our seniors have worked long and hard to better the economy, raise families and serve their communities. They deserve to live independent and active lives in their golden years.
Christopher Dodd
I want your sun to reach my raindrops, so your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
Rumi
A man unattached and without wife, if he have any genius at all, may raise himself above his original position, may mingle with the world of fashion, and hold himself on a level with the highest; this is less easy for him who is engaged; it seems as if marriage put the whole world in their proper rank.
Jean de la Bruyere
[Michael Hastings] has composed a dirge to incompatibility, which, because it raises expectations only to defeat them, leaves a taste of exhumed ashes.
Richard Corliss
The greatest issue is to raise the question of birth control out of the gutter of obscenity … into the light of intelligence and human understanding.
Margaret Sanger
When we advocate a thing which we believe will be successful we are not compelled to raise a doubt as to our own sincerity by trying to show what we will do if we are wrong.
William Jennings Bryan
The call of God does what the call of man cannot. It raises the dead.
John Piper
The actual growth in a person’s life is the rise in his wisdom and not the raise in his pay or income.
Anuj
As Speaker of the North Carolina House, I’ve proven I’m a problem-solver, balancing budgets, cutting wasteful spending, and providing teachers with historic pay raises.
Thom Tillis
If no other knowledge deserves to be called useful but that which helps to enlarge our possessions or to raise our station in society, then Mythology has no claim to the appellation.
Thomas Bulfinch
If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Western countries allow no freedom of expression, which they claim to advocate, with regard to the myth of the massacre of Jews known as the holocaust, and nobody in the West enjoys the freedom of expression to deny it or raise doubts about it.
Ali Khamenei
Ice in the West Antarctic and over Greenland, i.e., ice that’s over a rock at the moment, that will raise the level of the sea as it slides into the ocean, putting at risk everyone and everything that lives on the coasts, and that includes an enormous percentage of the world’s people.
Bill McKibben
I escaped London in 1997 because it was hard to raise capital.
Keith Teare
I don’t think we have any choice. I think we have an obligation to change the rules, to raise the bar, to play a different game, and to play it better than anyone has any right to believe is possible.
Seth Godin
Nintendo DS is not standing still. As a tenth serious competitor decides to make a run at Game Boy, DS raises the bar on portable gaming, before they even get started.
Reggie Fils-Aime
Don’t raise your expectations too high. It’s the surest way of being disappointed.
Mary Louisa Molesworth
If, to expose the fraud and imposition of monarchy . . . to promote universal peace, civilization, and commerce, and to break the chains of political superstition, and raise degraded man to his proper rank; if these things be libellous . . . let the name of libeller be engraved on my tomb
Thomas Paine
As more and more women, men and young people raise their voices and become active in local government, and more local leaders take action for the safety of women and girls, change happens.
Michelle Bachelet
When we were at peace, Democrats wanted to raise taxes. Now there’s a war, so Democrats want to raise taxes. When there was a surplus, Democrats wanted to raise taxes. Now that there is a mild recession, Democrats want to raise taxes.
Ann Coulter
A god who is both self-sufficient and content to remain so could not interest us enough to raise the question of his existence.
W. H. Auden
If I had used the term “guardian angels” or spoke of our “guides,” a lot fewer eyebrows would raise. So it’s just a matter of terminology here. The main idea is that we are always recipients of God’s help, whether it is through other of God’s beloved creatures, or directly from the Divine Itself.
Neale Donald Walsch
Only since the Industrial Revolution have most people worked in places away from their homes or been left to raise small children without the help of multiple adults, making for an unsupported life.
Martha Beck
I have so many themes I want to explore, so many questions I’d like to raise and develop, and hopefully, I’ll get to do just that.
Catherine McCormack
From a producer’s point of view, of course, ‘Law & Order’ presents an ideal – a show that is almost entirely actor-proof, that can keep going and going no matter what happens to the cast or how many actors demand raises.
Tom Shales
There are many people who don’t do well on a vegetarian or vegan diet, that for them, meat is a very nutritious food. So, I’m not prepared to give up meat. I don’t think we need to give up meat, but we certainly need to change the way we raise meat and diminish the amount of it in our diet.
Michael Pollan
Some members of Congress now are complaining they are underpaid. They want to propose a pay raise. You can’t blame them. A lot of them took a big income hit when Enron folded.
Jay Leno
Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesn’t just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.
Dick Costolo
The national debt is totally unlike a family budget for about a gazillion reasons, not the least of which being that families cannot raise money by fiat or deflate the size of their debt unilaterally and that family members die instead of existing infinitely.
Matt Taibbi
People tell me I’m a perfectionist. They tell me I’m too extreme and that I work too hard. I tell them, that is all I know how to do. I was taught to give my best effort in everything I do and demand perfection and raise the standard of excellence to a whole new level.
Robert Cheeke
Trouble comes looking for you. Lots of times I just stay in the house and enjoy my family. I try to be a father to my child, I’ll stay out of trouble if I can, because I have lots to do. Other folks have different hardships. It’s hard for a black man to raise a family.
Snoop Dogg
Alec looked merely irritated by this comment. “The only way you could raise enough money to hire Magnus by selling lemonade is if you put meth in it.
Cassandra Clare
The sinner can no more raise himself from the deadness of sin than Lazarus, who had been dead four days, until Jesus came.
George Whitefield
