That’s all I’m saying.

Quentin S. Crisp
Shane looked faintly injured. “I make it my business to know everything about silver. And I saw your notes.

It was a silver cow. But when I say ‘cow’, don’t go running away with the idea of some decent, self-respecting cudster such as you may observe loading grass into itself in the nearest meadow.

Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream, have faith in its course. It will go on its own way, meandering here, trickling there. It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices. Just follow it. Never let it out of your sight. It will take you.
Yeah, Silver and his math are jokes, because math has a liberal bias. After all, math is the reason Mitt Romney’s tax plan doesn’t add up.
Stephen Colbert
I’m fortunate for where I come from because even though I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth, it allowed me to appreciate any little thing that I have.
Daniel Jacobs
I tend to look at the silver lining of things.
Erika Jayne

Maurice Setters
Cervantes shrewdly advises to lay a bridge of silver for a flying enemy.
Edwin Percy Whipple
Silver nitrate and water in a super soaker,” he told her. “My own invention. Ought to be good at twenty feet, kind of like wasp spray.” Oh. “You get me the nicest things.” “Anybody can get jewelry. Posers
Rachel Caine
I ‘d rather be handsome than homely; I ‘d rather be youthful than old; If I can’t have a bushel of silver I’ll do with a barrel of gold.
James Jeffrey Roche
Whatever it takes to get the image to reach that level is what that photographer needs to do. And for me, I just have such a love of the tactile and sensuous quality of a black and white silver gelatin print.
John Sexton
How many times do I love, again?
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain
Unravelled from the trembling main
And threading the eye of a yellow star:-
So many times do I love again.
Thomas Lovell Beddoes
There is already something like a Jewish monopoly in high finance… here is the same element of Jewish monopoly in the silver trade, and in the control of various other metals, notably lead, nickel, quicksilver. What is most disquieting of all, this tendency to monopoly is spreading like a disease.
Hilaire Belloc
Always open all gates and roads to your enemies, and rather make for them a bridge of silver, to get rid of them.
[Fr., Ouvrez toujours a vos ennemis toutes les portes et chemin, et plutot leur faites un pont d’argent, afin de les renvoyer.]
Francois Rabelais
N.Y. Chamber of Commerce Urges Passage of Silver For War Use.
Caryl Parker Haskins
The silver trump of freedom had roused my soul to eternal wakefulness. Freedom now appeared, to disappear no more forever. It was heard in every sound, and seen in every thing.
Frederick Douglass
Burned and squashed to death in a silver vat of soup. There must be worst ways to go. But not many.
Jonathan Stroud
Well, what? Sophie-” “I hit her on the head with a mirror,” Sophie said hopelessly. “One of those silver-backed ones, so it was quite heavy. She went down just like a stone, miss. So I…I tied her to the bed and I came looking for you.
Cassandra Clare
Courtesy is a silver lining around the dark clouds of civilization; it is the best part of refinement and in many ways, an art of heroic beauty in the vast gallery of man’s cruelty and baseness.
Bryant H. McGill
I like to see photographs: I like to see my family. To me, when I open a basic browser, and it’s that very elegant silver simple user interface, I am unhappy. I don’t need elegant and silver and simple!
Mitchell Baker
It is my soul that calls upon my name; How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night, like softest music to attending ears! -Romeo
William Shakespeare
I have no animus toward digital, though I still pretty much take everything on a silver-based negative, either a wet plate or just regular silver 8×10. But I’ve started messing a little bit with scanning the negative and then reworking it just slightly.
Sally Mann
Arthur’s fingers tighten on the silver-braided hilt: see how naturally it fits his hand! He pulls. The Sword of Britain slides from its stone sheath. The ease with which this is accomplished shines in the wonder in Arthur’s eyes. He truly cannot believe what he has done. Nor can he comprehend what it means.
Stephen R. Lawhead
I had removed my patent leather shoes after a while, for they foundered badly in the sand. It pleased me to think they would be perched there on the silver log, pointing out to sea, like a sort of soul-compass, after I was dead.
Sylvia Plath
The role of the opposition leader differs from that of the chancellor. If this government is to be successful, I have to take the emotional state of all partners into account. Besides, the Social Democrats didn’t exactly present me with the motto “Let us dare to have more freedom” on a silver platter.
Angela Merkel
What are we singers but the silver-voiced messengers of the poet and the musician?
Nellie Melba
Where the Tennessee River, like a silver snake, winds her way through the clay hills of Alabama, sits high on these hills, my home town, Florence.
William Christopher Handy
I’ve watched almost six shows at the LIFW, and I loved Ranna Gill for her flowing white skirts with silver coins, Manish Arora’s hot pink drain pipe trousers and Rohit Bal’s superb finish.
Rhea Pillai
Reputation is a hall-mark: it can remove doubt from pure silver, and it can also make the plated article pass for pure.
Mark Twain
I opened up to you and you judge me
Matthew Quick
November is chill, frosted mornings with a silver sun rising behind the trees, red cardinals at the feeders, and squirrels running scallops along the tops of the gray stone walls.
Jean Hersey
If I’m going to mix gold and silver, I make my accessories all match.
Jillian Hervey
Beauty attracts us men; but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power.
Jean Paul
One of my favourite movies is ‘Annie Hall’ because it’s about the silver lining of the break-up.
Mike Birbiglia
Practically and commercially speaking, a dollar is not necessarily a specific thing, made of silver, or gold, or any other single metal, or substance. It is only such a quantum of market value as exists in a given piece of silver or gold.
Lysander Spooner
And where the deepest current crawls/ Like thistledown the dainty fly falls./ Then from the depths a silver gleam/ Quick flashes, like a jewel bright./ Up through the waters of the stream/ An instant visible to sight/ As lightning cleaves to sombre sky/ A rainbow rises to the fly.
John Buchan
Celia laughs and a curl of her hair falls across her cheek. Marco tentatively moves to brush it off her face, but before his fingers reach her, she pushes herself off the ledge, her silver gown a billowing cloud as she falls onto the pile of jewel-toned cushions.
Erin Morgenstern
The overlap between Pavement’s fan base and people who liked Silver Jews was total. In my mind, even a local band with 20 fans had more unqualified support.
David Berman
I’ve got this silver necklace and silver cross that my mom got me that I always wear during games. I don’t know if it’s superstition as much as it’s the fact I wouldn’t even feel right not wearing it.
Kyler Murray
His eyes went soft and silver as she spoke. “Zhe shi jie shang, wo shi zui ai ne de,” he whispered. She understood it. In all the world, you are what I love the most.
Cassandra Clare
In the beginning, it was meant to be like a faceless art piece. Then I did the first record and it received enough notice to satisfy my needs. I questioned the procedure out of fear. The Silver Jews was never meant to be recreated live.
David Berman
The sea was our main entertainment. When company came, we set them before it on rugs, with thermoses and sandwiches and colored umbrellas, as if the water – blue, green, gray, navy or silver as it might be – were enough to watch.
Sylvia Plath
From 1994 to 1996, I turned over every rock in Little Rock, looking for a silver bullet that would take down the Clintons in time for the 1996 election.
David Brock
As I stepped on the moon, I looked around, dazed…magnifice nt. The vast, sandy silver surface was almost illusory.
Neil Armstrong
I’ve never felt like I was born with a silver spoon at all, although I’ve felt like howling at the moon a lot of times!
Van Morrison
The worst thing you can do to a child, and I’ve seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon.
Elton John
Seine and Piave are silver spoons,
But the spoonbowl-metal is thin and worn
Stephen Vincent Benet
I had a good chance when I went to Beijing and the guy who beat me, I’d beaten him three weeks before and he went on to win silver.
Billy Joe Saunders
There’s no doubt in my mind that we’ll have a mania in gold. And because the gold and especially silver markets are so tiny, the rush into them will be like trying to push the contents of Hoover Dam through a garden hose. Our positions will go absolutely ballistic.
Doug Casey
It is because the administration is hostile to silver; and thus it is surrendering this country to the Shylocks of the Old World who have made war upon it.
Richard Parks Bland
Damn it all you can’t have the crown of thorns and the thirty pieces of silver.
Aneurin Bevan
When night falls over Washington, D.C., memorials, public buildings, and broad avenues become ethereal shapes in soft light and shadow. Floodlights, piercing the darkness, etch familiar landmarks in silver against a velvet sky. Unsuspected definition of form and contour is revealed.
Volkmar Wentzel
I’ve never been jealous before I met you, it burns, luv. Like silver through my veins. Some nights, watching you with other men on your jobs, I think it will drive me mad. (Bones)
Jeaniene Frost
I flexed my wrist, popped a silver needle into my palm, and offered it to him. ‘What’s this?’ ‘A needle.’ ‘What should I do with it?’ He’d walked right into it. Too easy. ‘Please use it to pop your head. It’s obscuring my view of the room.’ – Kate & Saiman
Ilona Andrews
It’s a truism in technological development that no silver lining comes without its cloud.
Bruce Sterling
When night hath set her silver lamp high, Then is the time for study.
Philip James Bailey
Does the Eagle know what is in the pit Or wilt thou go ask the Mole? Can Wisdom be put in a silver rod, Or Love in a golden bowl?
William Blake
A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin or when he sees silver he looks for the cloud it lines. A wise happy person does the exact opposite.
H. L. Mencken
There is a great silver lining to the 45th presidency, which is, it’s hard to swallow that he is existing, which gives us the silver lining, which is a great uncovering of the historical disenfranchisement and marginalization of so many people in this country for so long.
Asia Kate Dillon
To my great surprise, Twitter is not housed in a silver pod that orbits Earth at supersonic speeds, vacuuming up and then dispersing digital bits of worldwide chitchat; it’s in a big, bland office building in downtown San Francisco, near a bowling alley and an Old Navy.
Susan Orlean
Two gold medals and two silver, I don’t think is that bad… I think I still did a pretty good job.
Nadia Comaneci
I can’t live without my silver Marc Jacobs boots! They are a little bit cowboy, a little bit space alien. They go with everything.
Wynter Gordon
By never marrying, I ended up never divorcing, but I also failed to accumulate that brocade of civility and padlock of security – kids you do or don’t want, Tiffany silver you never use – that makes life complete.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
Today, medical devices such as catheters and stethoscopes use silver, and every hospital in the western world uses silver sulfadiazine to prevent infections.
Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve got an image of me at the bottom of my garden sitting under my silver birch tree reading, while everyone else had gone somewhere exotic.
Geri Halliwell
Without wishing to sound arrogant, when I was younger, I used to win every single martial arts tournament I ever entered. I used to enter the under 14s and under 16s, win both gold medals in those, and then go in the men’s tournament just for experience, and end up getting a silver medal.
Michael Bisping
Squirrel Girl is basically a Silver Age character in the modern age, and that makes her a fish out of water in a lot of ways. She likes being a superhero. She likes fighting crime. She doesn’t sit around brooding in the darkness of her Squirrel Hole trying to figure out new ways to make crime pay.
Ryan North
The Dove, on silver pinions, winged her peaceful way.
James Montgomery
From the inception of our nation our American ancestors intended for the United States to operate under a precious-metals monetary system or, more specifically, under a monetary system in which people used gold and silver coins rather than paper money as the media of exchange.
Jacob G. Hornberger
While you can fill every heart as your own full of laughter loud as gold and passion quick as silver.
Ryan Adams
Jatin Khanna and I both changed our names for the silver screen. He became known the world over as Rajesh Khanna and from Ravi Kapoor, I transformed into Jeetendra! A little known fact is that we were also school friends.
The moon was up, painting the world silver, making things look just a little more alive.
N.D. Wilson
The silver trump of freedom roused in my soul eternal wakefulness.
Frederick Douglass
I grew up in the GOP sandbox. My dad took me, age 7, to meet Herbert Hoover, in his apartment at the Waldorf Towers. He gave me a silver dollar. Being a young Republican, I spent it on comic books.
Christopher Buckley
Every silver lining has a cloud.
Mary Kay Ash
So far the biggest accomplishment I give myself is getting the silver in the Olympic Trials. Even though it’s kind of a defeat. Not too many people make it that far. I do see it as an accomplishment and one of my greatest.
Keith Thurman
There was no silver bullet that could have prevented the 11 September attacks. There was nothing demonstrating or showing that something was coming in the United States. If there had been something, we would have acted on it.
Condoleezza Rice
I used to surf up in Ventura County at Silver Strand; plus, I’ve played up there many times.
Dick Dale
One thing I liked about ‘Silver Bell’ is that I barely knew how to play in the tuning I was writing in, and I just went for it anyway.
Patty Griffin
There is a silver lining to every cloud and there’s some awesome songs that have come from some really like bad experiences, but they’re great experiences ’cause then I’ve got some good songs so it’s all good for me.
Joss Stone
Why, Yrael?” it said, as the last of the dark gave way to silver, and the shining sphere of metal sank slowly to the ground. “Why?” “Life,” said Yrael, who was more Mogget than it ever knew. “Fish and fowl, warm sun and shady trees, the field mice in the wheat, under the cool light of the moon.
Garth Nix
Murphy is a writer’s best friend, but you have to keep an eye on him, or he’ll steal the silver.
Patricia C. Wrede
What is Time… That you speak of it so subserviently? Are we to be the slaves of the sun, that second-hand, overrated knob of gilt, or of his sister, that fatuous circle of silver paper? A curse upon their ridiculous dictatorship!
Mervyn Peake
In a way, the sense of quality has improved, the status symbol of the small things is gone, and it is acceptable to use stainless steel, even if the neighbour uses silver.
Arne Jacobsen
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”
Oriah Dreamer
I don’t believe in nirvana. If nirvana was handed to us on a silver platter, this would be the first day of our struggle to keep it.
Holly Near
I thought of my father’s wisdom, as though it were buried in a box under a tree. As in the old song – a gold box with a silver pin. Some day I should be grown up, and I should dig up the box and turn the pin.
Mary Butts
Why does everyone think the future is space helmets, silver foil, and talking like computers, like a bad episode of Star Trek?
Tracey Ullman
Too elevated qualities often unfit a man for society. We do not go to market with ingots, but with silver and small change.
Nicolas Chamfort
Day-to-day I normally wear concealer and bronzer. For occasions, lots of eye make-up, a strong mascara and a smoky or glittery eye in gold or silver.
Lady Amelia Windsor
Puccini – silver macaroni, exquisitely tangled.
H. L. Mencken
Throw out the rule book. If you like wearing navy and black together, wear it; if you like mixing up gold and silver jewellery, mix it. If you like it, wear it – don’t care about what anyone else thinks.
Amber Le Bon
‘Silver Linings’ has proved a golden opportunity for me.
Anupam Kher
For the first time in our history, the winners of the White House Turkey Pardon were chosen through a highly competitive online vote. And once again, Nate Silver completely nailed it. The guy is amazing.
Barack Obama
End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Personally, I like those mystery shows. Ever since I was a kid I’ve been crazy about blood and detectives and murder. Maybe I was born with a silver knife in my back.
Jack Paar
I saw that the State was half-witted, that it was timid as a lone woman with her silver spoons, and that it did not know its friends from its foes, and I lost all my remaining respect for it, and pitied it.
Henry David Thoreau
I am silver and exact.I have no preconceptions.
Sylvia Plath
Nate Silver is now forecasting Oscar winners. The only area of life in which he has no expertise, ironically, is life itself.
Norman Chad
Like a falling star, he descended on the Tarbh CrГі, a Cassiline berserker, his sword biting and slashing like a silver snake.
Jacqueline Carey
My mockingjay pin now lives with Cinna’s outfit, but there’s the gold locket and the silver parachute with the spile and Peeta’s pearl. I knot the pearl into the corner of the parachute, bury it deep in the recesses of the bag, as if it’s Peeta’s life and no one can take it away as long as I guard it.
Suzanne Collins
EO 11110 did not order the printing of Silver Certificates. It ordered the amendment of a previous executive order so that the United States Code would authorize or ’empower’ the Secretary of the Treasury to issue Silver Certificates if the occasion should arise.
G. Edward Griffin
Like a lot of people, I sold my first script in graduate school at UCLA, a ‘Joan of Arc’ for producer Joel Silver.
Laeta Kalogridis
This is a very insulting tribute
But take it in good heart
Congratulations Mom and Dad
You’ve reached Silver together…apart
Lots of love etc
John Walter Bratton
So,” I (Percy) said glumly. “We’re going to get a ride from your brother, huh?” Artemis’s silver eyes gleamed. “Yes, boy. You see, Bianca di Angelo is not the only one with an annoying brother. It’s time for you to meet my irresponsible twin, Apollo.
Rick Riordan
When I was little, I used to think, ‘That’s the way people in the future are gonna dress! They’ll be wearing space suits, and it will be all silver, all the time. It’s gonna glitter.’
Kate Pierson
Our biggest learnings come only from the biggest blows, hence, I’d request one and all to look out for the silver linings and focus on positive thoughts and ideas, because as I always say, every cloud has a silver lining, and every sunset ends with a beautiful sunrise.
Rituparna Sengupta
Absolutely speaking, Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you is by no means a golden rule, but the best of current silver. An honest man would have but little occasion for it. It is golden not to have any rule at all in such a case.
Henry David Thoreau
But far, oh, far as passionate eye can reach, And long, ah, long as rapturous eye can cling, The world is mine: blue hill, still silver lake, Broad field, bright flower, and the long white road A gateless garden, and an open path: My feet to follow, and my heart to hold.

Rodger Ward
Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon.
Mitt Romney
Things that make me laugh range from a wonderful stand-up like Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K. and Chris Rock to my son Gabe, who does great improv work. I also look backwards to the great comedic actors like Jackie Gleason, Paul Lynde and Phil Silvers.
Jason Alexander
A Styrofoam egg carton caught his eye. He opened it and found a single silver orb with little blinking red lights. “This is cool, too!” He dropped it into his backpack. “Dan, no!” “What? They’ve got plenty of other stuff, and we need all the help we can get!” “It could be dangerous.” “I hope so.
Rick Riordan
I believe that there’s a cloud for every silver lining,’ I said.
Jim Butcher
In Italy, everybody buys silver for every special occasion. Baptisms, weddings, you get silver.
Debi Mazar
The Union, and the Constitution, are the picture of silver, subsequently framed around it. The picture was not made to conceal or destroy the apple, but to adorn and preserve it. The picture was made for the apple-not the apple for the picture.
Abraham Lincoln
Coming out in a bedazzled tank top and silver jeans and singing ‘Superstar’ with a 36-piece band and 28 dancers around me is one of the dopest things I’ve ever had the opportunity to do.
Brandon Victor Dixon
I expect to see trade wars, foreign policy disasters, a few race riots, a decrease in personal liberty, higher taxes, higher inflation and probably, economic collapse. The silver lining is, secession will probably become more feasible.
Charley Reese
Baby’s fishing for a dream, fishing near and far. His line a silver moonbeam is, his bait a silver star.
Alice Riley

Carl Sandburg
The cricket’s gone, we only hear machines In erg and atom they exact their pay. And life is largely lived on silver screens.
David McCord
When we see the shameful fortunes amassed in all quarters of the globe, are we not impelled to exclaim that Judas’ thirty pieces of silver have fructified across the centuries?
Sophie Swetchine
The real reason Jews don’t have more Hanukkah music is that, historically, American Jewish singer-songwriters were too busy making Christmas music. ‘White Christmas,’ ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ ‘Silver Bells’ and ‘The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)’ were all written by Jews.
The moon of a bright silver, which dazzles by its shining, illumines a world which surely is no longer ours; for it resembles in nothing what may be seen in other lands.
Pierre Loti
I don’t think the Democrats need a silver bullet.
Jonathan Chait
I remember the Silver Jubilee clearly because we had a fancy dress street party in Sheffield. I dressed up as a Japanese girl with a too-big red kimono – cultural appropriation hadn’t been invented in 1977. I was six.
Emily Maitlis
The early mist had vanished and the fields lay like a silver shield under the sun. It was one of the days when the glitter of winter shines through a pale haze of spring.
Edith Wharton
Book tours are really kind of fun. You get to stay in nice hotels, you are driven everywhere in big silver cars, you are treated as if you are much more important than you are, you can eat steak three times a day at someone else’s expense, and you get to talk endlessly about yourself for weeks at a stretch.
Bill Bryson
I don’t think that there is anything unreal when it comes to romance onscreen. It’s just a little more glorifying. But whatever you feel in real life about love, is just what we try to show on the silver screen as well.
Pulkit Samrat
DISOBEDIENCE, n. The silver lining to the cloud of servitude.
Ambrose Bierce
The metallic silver coating found on fast-food game cards.
Rich Hall
There are lots of things in the folklore, like they can only be killed by a silver bullet, that don’t realistically work, if you’re trying to say they have existed for hundreds of years, unknown.
Kelley Armstrong
I learned something, when you have Nazi uniform on, why people were so evil and used their power. Because it’s a very powerful uniform, it’s like boots and black and silver and skeletons everywhere, on your hat, on your shoulder.
Udo Kier
I love my story. I wouldn’t change it. It gives it character. It’s never been on a silver spoon.
J. D. Martinez
We belles always look for the silver lining.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies, and all the things that can be compared unto her.
Every silver lining has a touch of grey.
Jerry Garcia
Be content to be what you are; shiny stones and silver bangles only make you look what you really are.
Tiny Tim
Who can fear
Too many stars, though each in heaven shall roll-
Too many flowers, though each shall crown the year?
Say thou dost love me, love me, love me-toll
The silver iterance!-only minding, Dear,
To love me also in silence, with thy soul.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The winter will be short, the summer long, The autumn amber-hued, sunny and hot, Tasting of cider and of scuppernong; All seasons sweet, but autumn best of all. The squirrels in their silver fur will fall Like falling leaves, like fruit, before your shot.
Elinor Wylie
It’s always great to perform, make the podium, and yeah, gold, silver, and bronze, will also encourage other nations, Asia, America to do better.
Caster Semenya
I remember watching the ‘Iron Man’ cartoons when I was younger. I remember reading the origin stories and some of the Silver Age stuff, and I read ‘The Avengers’ – ‘The Defenders’ and then ‘The Avengers’ – and that sort of brought me into ‘Iron Man.’
Jon Favreau
I didn’t think I would have an Olympic medal at 21, but I knew I would give my best and play my game. I just viewed it as my first Olympics and that I would take it one match at a time, but to bring a silver home made me very, very happy.
P. V. Sindhu

I like to see the silver linings in things.
Emily Hampshire
Since I have already connected with fans on TV, I don’t fear losing out on my movie fans, even if I am away from the silver screen for a long time.
Siddharth Shukla
The ‘crownd’ is still the unit, the favourite coin of the labourers, especially the elder folk. They use the word something in the same sense as the dollar, and look with regret upon the gradual disappearance of the broad silver disc with the figure of ‘St. Gaarge’ conquering the dragon.
Richard Jefferies
I have neither silver nor gold, but I bring with me the most precious thing given to me: Jesus Christ.
Pope Francis
The night was clear and frosty, all ebony of shadow and silver of snowy slope; big stars were shining over the silent fields; here and there the dark pointed firs stood up with snow powdering their branches and the wind whistling through them.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
The descendants of those who crucified Christ… have taken ownership of the riches of the world, a minority has taken ownership of the gold of the world, the silver, the minerals, water, the good lands, petrol, well, the riches, and they have concentrated the riches in a small number of hands.
Hugo Chavez
The man who never in his life Has washed the dishes with his wife Or polished up the silver plate – He still is largely celibate.
Christopher Morley
I have a problem with that silver medal. It’s like, ‘Congratulation s, you almost won. Of all the losers, you’re the number one loser. No one lost ahead of you.’
Jerry Seinfeld
I opened up a frozen-yogurt business out of college. I didnt finish college; I went halfway, and then I worked for Joel Silver, the producer, as a driver for a year.
Greg Grunberg
Physics says: go to sleep. Of course you’re tired. Every atom in you has been dancing the shimmy in silver shoes nonstop from mitosis to now. Quit tapping your feet. They’ll dance inside themselves without you.
Albert Goldbarth
Winning gold and three silver medals at the Paralympic games is something I’ll never forget, but I knew deep down there was still more work to do. I had to continue to redefine what was possible and get back everything that was taken away from me.
Victoria Arlen
I personally have a silver idol of Lord Ganesh that I reuse every year. Don’t measure your devotion with the size of the idol.
Amrita Rao
I don’t want to stay in the bad place, where no one believes in silver linings or love or happy endings.

Douglas Adams
The faint old man shall lean his silver head To feel thee; thou shalt kiss the child asleep, And dry the moistened curls that overspread His temples, while his breathing grows more deep.
Bear Bryant
We served Twinkies and Sno Balls at our wedding. We put them on silver trays so they looked elegant – but they were the real deal!
Dylan Lauren
Many a night I saw the Pleiads,
Rising thro’ the mellow shade,
Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies,
Tangled in a silver braid.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
After the golden age of Latinity, we gradually slide into the silver, and at length precipitately descend into the iron.

W. S. Gilbert
Papa was a man with silver eyes, not dead ones. Papa was an accordion! But his bellows were all empty. Nothing went in and nothing came out.

Mick Hucknall
I feel like a Gold surrounded by Silver!
Carlos P. Romulo

Erin O’Toole
Silver is less valuable than gold, gold than virtue.
[Lat., Vilius argentum est auro virtutibus aurum.]
My signature look is an eighties baby doll dress, combat boots with colorful socks sticking out, and then mounds of jewelry. I love silver and turquoise. I go to Montana every winter, so I hunt around for cool pieces there.
Zoey Deutch
When daisies pied and violets blue And lady-smocks all silver-white And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue Do paint the meadows with delight, The cuckoo then, on every tree, Mocks married men; for thus sings he, Cuckoo; Cuckoo, cuckoo; O, word of fear, Unpleasing to a married ear.
William Shakespeare

Juan Martin del Potro
We want and expect to win the silver or gold. A bronze would be a step back. In fact, we think it would be a put-down if we don’t win the silver or gold.
Betty Okino
You see, Aslan didn’t tell Pole what would happen. He only told her what to do. That fellow will be the death of us once he’s up, I shouldn’t wonder. But that doesn’t let us off following the signs. – The Silver Chair
C. S. Lewis
The trees were full of silver-white sunlight and the meanest of them sparkled.
Flannery O’Connor
Humanity appreciates truth about as much as a squirrel appreciates silver.
Vernon Howard
I think ‘Horace Silver’ was actually the first live jazz group I ever heard back when I was a kid in St. Louis. So along with most players of my generation, I have a real affection for the music of ‘Horace Silver.’
David Sanborn

Ben Horowitz
You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.

Nancy Tellem
Wisdom is better than silver and gold
Lauryn Hill
All the world lies warm in one heart, yet the Sierra seems to get more light than other mountains. The weather is mostly sunshine embellished with magnificent storms, and nearly everything shines from base to summit – the rocks, streams, lakes, glaciers, irised falls, and the forests of silver fir and silver pine.
John Muir
I don’t know what I was thinking, coming out here. There are no silver bullets in life, there’s just the long, messy climb out of the pit you’ve dug youself.
Jodi Picoult
The pleasant’st angling is to see the fish Cut with her golden oars the silver stream And greedily devour the treacherous bait.
William Shakespeare
But let me see thee stoop from heaven on wings That fill the sky with silver glitterings!
John Keats
If a seperate personal Paradise exists for each of us mine must irreparably be planted with trees of words which the wind silvers like poplars, by people who see their confiscated justice given back, and by birds that even in the midst of the truth of death insist on singing in Greek and saying, eros, eros, eros.
Odysseas Elytis
Melted down, silver is worth a little more than four dollars an ounce. But carved, inlaid, and engraved, and identified with a particular year, it becomes the direct reflection, often the literal record, of human history, our movement through time.
Peter Landesman
Just for a handful of silver he left us, Just for a riband to stick in his coat.
Robert Browning
This was a voice that drew out memories stretched thin by years of recollection, like paper unfolded and refolded too many times. A voice that brought back, like a wave, the memory of another time on this bridge, a night so long ago, everything black and silver and the river rushing away under her feet.
Cassandra Clare
Let heart and voice, like bells of silver, ring, the comfort that this day doth bring.
Alexander Moody Stuart
As with any difficult challenge that the public and policymakers face, there is no single solution or silver bullet that will serve as the answer to how the United States works to reduce carbon emissions.
Evan Bayh
Labour was the first price, the original purchase – money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased.
Adam Smith
Quotations are the gold mine of human mind, the silver pearls of the wisdom ocean, and the cool drops of the rain of intelligence.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I guess on all Silver Jews records, it’s extremely male-centric.
David Berman

Paul Caponigro
Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
William Butler Yeats
A Hebrew knelt in the dying light, His eye was dim and cold; The hairs on his brow were silver white, And his blood was thin and old.
Thomas Kibble Hervey
Indeed, I thought, slipping the silver into my purse, it is remarkable, remembering the bitterness of those days, what a change of temper a fixed income will bring about.
Virginia Woolf
Education is the silver bullet to improve this Nation’s standing worldwide… and our teachers know that.
Solomon Ortiz
The silver-leaved birch retains in its old age a soft bark; there are some such men.
Berthold Auerbach
For me, the goal of a reading is fundamentally to help the person get closure or insight, and so sharing negative information without any positive silver lining or any potential resolution is pointless.
Tyler Henry
Alas! for that accursed time They bore thee o’er the billow, From love to titled age and crime, And an unholy pillow! From me, and from our misty clime, Where weeps the silver willow!
Edgar Allan Poe
We’re on a collision course for disaster. All we can do, all your viewers can do is brace for impactBuy gold. Buy silver Get as far away as you can from U.S. currency and the U.S. economy.
Peter Schiff
Oh say, can you see, it’s really such a mess. Every inch of earth is a fighting nest. Giant pencial and lipstick tube shaped things, continue to rain and cause scream and pain, and the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red.
Jimi Hendrix
Our plenteous streams a various race supply, The bright-eyed perch with fins of Tyrian dye, The silver eel, in shining volumes roll’d, The yellow carp, in scales bedropp’d with gold, Swift trouts, diversified with crimson stains, And pikes, the tyrants of the wat’ry plains.
Alexander Pope
My dad was a wonderful, wonderful person. Sadly, he had some demons. There is a silver lining in all of that. You live and learn, and it has brought my family closer together, so I’m grateful for that.
Katie Cassidy
It is true that from a behavioral economics perspective we are fallible, easily confused, not that smart, and often irrational. We are more like Homer Simpson than Superman. So from this perspective it is rather depressing. But at the same time there is also a silver lining. There are free lunches!
Dan Ariely
But it is never over;
nothing ends until we want it to.
Look, in shattered midnights,
On black ice under silver trees,
We are still dancing, dancing.
Gwendolyn MacEwen
My mother taught me to believe in silver, to believe in things, but I think it’s more important to believe in me.
Elizabeth Scott
I’m staying with film, and with silver prints, and no Photoshop. That’s the way I learned photography: You make your picture in the camera. Now, so much is made in the computer… I’m not anti-digital; I just think, for me, film works better.
Mary Ellen Mark
Earlier we used to enjoy films for 25 weeks, Silver jubilee, and Golden jubilee; but now it takes only 3 days to recover the cost.
Himani Shivpuri
You have to earn money the hard way. Because no-one will serve it up to you on a silver platter.
Gordon Wu
If there’s a silver bullet in the battle to recapture Albany, it is the re-engagement of our citizens. This capital has become a physical metaphor for the isolation and alienation of our people.
Andrew Cuomo
I went to a fashion show, and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes. It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future.
Tom Ford
All gold and silver rather turn to dirt, An ’tis no better reckoned but of these Who worship dirty gods.
William Shakespeare
Cinema immortalizes ordinary people. Not just the ones we watch on the silver screens, but also the behind the scene heroes.
Shweta Basu Prasad
So the days pass, and I ask myself whether one is not hypnotized, as a child by a silver globe, by life, and whether this is living.
Virginia Woolf
Surrounded and absorbed, we tread like Etruscans on the edge of useless law; we pray to the giver of prayer, we give the cane whistle in ceremony, we swing the heavy silver chain of incense burners. Migration makes new citizens of Rome.
Elizabeth Cook-Lynn
I wouldn’t say I grew up with a silver spoon. Yeah, I was very fortunate. I have a great family.
T.J. Dillashaw
The regrets I have are so minor. You know, would I leave my Keith Richards hat, with the silver skull on it, on the stool at the coffee shop at LaGuardia? I wouldn’t do that again. But overall, no, I don’t have any regrets.
Hunter S. Thompson
‘Silver Street’ was a very happy time for me.
Anita Dobson
While paralyzed, I won a gold and three silver medals as a competitive swimmer.
Victoria Arlen
Remember when the music Came from wooden boxes strung with silver wire And as we sang the words, it would set our minds on fire, For we believed in things, and so we’d sing.
Harry Chapin
I also have in mind that seemingly wealthy, but most terribly impoverished class of all, who have accumulated dross, but know not how to use it, or get rid of it, and thus have forged their own golden or silver fetters.
Henry David Thoreau
The people of Nebraska are for free silver and I am for free silver. I will look up the arguments later.
William Jennings Bryan
I thought it might be fun to set my books in Nevada, which is in the West and still pretty Wild. You can still gamble, carry a loaded pistol and go into a silver-mine and they still have saloons with swinging doors, boardwalks, and horses.
Caroline Lawrence
Go to sleep, baby,Mama will sing. Of blue butterflies, and dragonfly wings. Moonlight and sunbeams, raiments so fine. Silver and gold, for baby of mine. Go to sleep, baby. Sister will tell, of wolves and of lambs, and demons who fell.-Pierce’s Lullaby Kim Harrison (Black Magic Sanction)
Kim Harrison
Guess that’s thirty-one pieces of silver you’ve got now, huh? Sleep well, Judas.
Mark Millar
The Church of the Apostles was a Church of the poor; of silver and gold it had none.
Henry Parry Liddon
Titles are relatively arbitrary to me; they take on meanings that aren’t really my meanings. ‘Sound Of Silver’ was just, like, I made the studio silver, and I wanted the record to sound ‘more silver.’
James Murphy
I don’t want an angry song with no silver lining ending up on my album. Then I’d have to play, or feel obliged to play, that song every night in repetition as a mantra of anger.
Alex Ebert
His smile is like the silver plate on a coffin.
John Philpot Curran
Evening had fallen. A rim of the young moon cleft the pale waste of sky line, the rim of a silver hoop embedded in grey sand: and the tide was flowing in fast to the land with a low whisper of her waves, islanding a few last figures in distant pools.
James Joyce
Most orgies that you go to, I have found, most of it is sad. All that wildness, all those laughs were like the shining silver and gold paper on packages, but there was nothing inside.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
Silver is of less value than gold, gold than virtue.
Her godmother simply touched her with her wand, and, at the same moment, her clothes were turned into cloth of gold and silver, all decked with jewels.
Charles Perrault
Love should be the silver thread that runs through all your conduct.
J. C. Ryle
It is important to realize that gold and silver are international commodities and that, therefore, when not prohibited by government decree, foreign coins are perfectly capable of serving as standard moneys.
Murray Rothbard
He was rewarded with a silver-and-red can of soda. He brandished it at the dolphin warriors as if spraying them with bug repellant. “Behold!” Percy shouted. “The god’s chosen beverage. Tremble before the horror of Diet Coke!” The dolphin-men began to panic. They were on the edge of retreat. Percy could feel it.
Rick Riordan
I’m glad to be partnered with Orgullosa because I feel that now that I’m able to win a gold medal at the Olympics, win a silver medal, I feel little girls will be able to look up to me, and Hispanics will kind of rise a little more.
Laurie Hernandez
Ned was clad in a white linen doublet with the direwolf of Stark on the breast; his black wool cloak was fastened at the collar by his silver hand of office. Black and white and grey, all the shades of truth.
George R. R. Martin
I am honored to have had two Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions made from my novels – ‘Silver Bells’ and ‘Follow the Stars Home.’
Luanne Rice
They resumed walking. Alex felt an ache in his eyes and throat. “I don’t know what happened to me,” he said, shaking his head. “I honestly don’t.” Bennie glanced at him, a middle-aged man with chaotic silver hair and thoughtful eyes. “You grew up, Alex,” he said, “just like the rest of us.
Jennifer Egan
Genius is a bend in the creek where bright water has gathered, and which mirrors the trees, the sky and the banks. It just does that because it is there and the scenery is there. Talent is a fine mirror with a silver frame, with the name of the owner engraved on the back.
Edgar Lee Masters
Hammer the iron that lies on your anvil instead of daydreaming about working silver.
Robert Jordan
Global poverty is a complex web of interlinked problems. There is no one ‘silver bullet’ that will solve global inequality. Multiple contributing factors must be tackled in parallel. Yes, education alone is unlikely to lead to employment without economic reform to address the demand side in much of the developing world.
Adam Braun
What is the effect of unlimited coinage of silver in this country? and I invite your attention to this particularly, because it is a question of vital importance.
Richard Parks Bland
It’s really cool. I don’t know how many people in the world have a silver medal. Maybe a thousand?
Nikola Jokic
I was on a beach in Hawaii for a video shoot once, and it was incredibly beautiful. It had very fine black sand with a silver sparkle running through it.
Louise Nurding
I live in a grey world, rather like the silver screen world. But yellow stands out.
Jorge Luis Borges
Do you remember Barbara Bush? I call her the silver douchebag.
George Carlin
I remember lying on the floor of my room, staring at a black-and-white television for most of the ’80s – watching ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ ‘Facts of Life,’ ‘Silver Spoons,’ Saturday morning cartoons, and ‘Murder, She Wrote’ while eating an insane amount of Stouffer’s French bread pizza. I was sucked into it all.
Jim Rash
Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite,
All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon’s silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play.
Joel Benton
Most of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouth, but if life dealt you all the wrong cards, you still have to play.
Ivan Moody
I wouldn’t call it a silver lining, but with more women speaking up, online harassment is beginning to be taken more seriously.
Anita Sarkeesian
This discipline and rough treatment are a furnace to extract the silver from the dross. This testing purifies the gold by boiling the scum away.
Nature also forges man, now a gold man, now a silver man, now a fig man, now a bean man.
In the night the cabbages catch at the moon, the leaves drip silver, the rows of cabbages are a series of little silver waterfalls in the moon.
Carl Sandburg
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go; Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again. With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
Meredith Willson
We periodically note that there are no silver bullets, there are no magic formulas, there’s no single action or component of the overall… comprehensive civil-military approach.
David Petraeus
If I have cash and I can’t figure a way to put it into real estate or my business, I hold it in gold and silver.
Robert Kiyosaki
I don’t care if you’re purple. If you’re making a catch or going to go down, you could be silver. I couldn’t care less, if you’re making those plays for the team. If you’re a selfless player, nobody pays attention to that at all. White, black, silver, pink, it doesn’t matter to me.
Jimmy Graham
For years I study. I look long at olive trees, all gray and silver, and watch the sunlight. Ah, yes, I am ver’ lazy, but I see after I look long that it is perspective that give it this quality. Perspective, and absolute faith to the subject.
Ugo Mochi
Liesel observed the strangeness of her foster father’s eyes. They were made of kindness, and silver.
Markus Zusak
I suppose there were moonless nights and dark ones with but a silver shaving and pale stars in the sky, but I remember them all as flooded with the rich indolence of a full moon.
Willa Cather
The only vocal training I had was playing with a tape recorder as a kid, and you know, doing the beginning of the ‘Lone Ranger’ show, with a hearty hi-o silver, and just having fun, never really thinking I would be an announcer.
Michael Buffer
There’s a time for casting silver; a time for casting cannon. If that isn’t in the red, it should be!
Paul Revere
Still and pale
Thou movest in thy silver veil,
Queen of the night! the filmy shroud
Of many a mild, transparent cloud
Hides, yet adorns thee.
Winthrop Mackworth Praed
There is a flower, a little flower With silver crest and golden eye, That welcomes every changing hour, And weathers every sky.
James Montgomery
I think most people gain some sense of how to look at a painting, but no one ever teaches you how to look at a piece of silver.
Mary Beard
This is what I learned at the hospital. You have to do everything you can, you have to work your hardest, and if you do, if you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining.
Bradley Cooper
I want to take you to a place of pure magic… It’s the place athletes call the “zone”. Buddhists call “satori” and ravers call “trance”. I call it the Silver Desert. It’s a place of pure light that holds the dark within it. It’s a place of pure rhythm.
Gabrielle Roth
Knowledge is silver. Outlook is gold. IQ is a lead weight.
Alan Kay
I wanted someone a little more approachable,” I explained. “What, like Captain McTropicalShorts back there? Where on earth did you find him anyway?” “Just did an Internet search.” Feeling a need to defend my research, I added, “He comes highly recommended.” “By who? Long John Silver?
Richelle Mead
If the quality of professional materials continues to erode or even dries up, then many of us silver photographers would have to follow the digital tidal wave. It certainly wouldn’t be the end of the world, but in my opinion, having no silver material available would be a huge loss to photography.
Michael Kenna
Every crowd has a silver lining.
P. T. Barnum
We’re becoming so much better at destigmatizing all sorts of things, including mental illness in ‘Silver Linings’.
Jacki Weaver
The reason we need to have a gold and silver based currency is to bring discipline to the financial system so the government can’t go out and do all sorts of bad things.
Bernard von NotHaus
I am delighted that I have found a new reaction to demonstrate even to the blind the structure of the interstitial stroma of the cerebral cortex. I let the silver nitrate react with pieces of brain hardened in potassium dichromate. I have already obtained magnificent results and hope to do even better in the future.
Camillo Golgi
When I sell liquor, it’s bootlegging. When my patrons serve it on a silver tray on Lakeshore Drive, it’s hospitality.
Al Capone
[Beauty is] a delicate bait with a deadly hook; a sweet panther with a devouring paunch, a sour poison in a silver pot.
John Lyly
Finally Beiderbecke came out with a silver cornet. He put it to his lips and blew a phrase. The sound came out like a girl saying ‘yes’.
Eddie Condon
There are silver ships
There are gold ships,
But there are no ships
Like friendships.
W Mitchell
There was still gold and silver in the mountains,
And hunger was a more immediate sorrow
W. H. Auden
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
To gold and silver nature hath given no use that we may not well lack.
Thomas More
I know what the important things are in life. I know that just because I pretend to be someone else for two hours on the silver screen doesn’t make me a better person than the next man. So, I mind all those things. Simple things.
Colin Farrell
There is no disgrace in working. There was no silver spoon around at the time I was born.

Neil Sedaka
No tablecloths, silver cutlery, fine porcelain, sommeliers, or deep wine lists – that’s fine. But no service or hospitality? That’s going too far.
Daniel Humm
The boat was so old; it must have been launched when Long John Silver had two legs and an egg on his shoulder.
Chic Murray
Everything within a half-a-minute or a half-an-inch is gold, silver, bronze or nothing.
Nancy Pelosi
I completely understand why people are concerned about immigration. There’s no silver bullet, no one thing you can do to suddenly deal with all the problems and concerns with immigration, and that includes leaving the E.U.
Theresa May
No lower can a man descend than to interpret his dreams into gold and silver.
Khalil Gibran
I am obsessed with silver jewellery, so I visited the Johri Bazar, which is famous for it and bought a lot of silver rings, earrings and pendants.
Amyra Dastur
Commodities such as gold and silver have a world market that transcends national borders, politics, religions, and race. A person may not like someone else’s religion, but he’ll accept his gold.
Robert Kiyosaki
‘Silver Spoons’ was great memories – absolutely the best.
Ricky Schroder
In the pathway of the sun, In the footsteps of the breeze, Where the world and sky are one, He shall ride the silver seas, He shall cut the glittering wave. I shall sit at home, and rock; Rise, to heed a neighbor’s knock; Brew my tea, and snip my thread; Bleach the linen for my bed. They will call him brave.
Dorothy Parker
Gold and silver are no doubt subject to fluctuations, from the discovery of new and more abundant mines; but such discoveries are rare, and their effects, though powerful, are limited to periods of comparatively short duration.
David Ricardo
In a world of war, pain and suffering, all I want for Christmas is an underwater watch and a silver clutch rod for my dirt bike.
Dana Gould
I see the moon like a clipped piece of silver. Like gilded bees the stars cluster round her.
Oscar Wilde
There are several silver linings on the horizon. The current account deficits in Spain and Portugal are declining because they have become more competitive and they’re exporting more.
Wolfgang Schauble
A harvest mouse goes scampering by, With silver claws and silver eye; And moveless fish in the water gleam, By silver reeds in a silver stream.
Walter de La Mare
The harvest moon has no innocence, like the slim quarter moon of a spring twilight, nor has it the silver penny brilliance of the moon that looks down upon the resorts of summer time. Wise, ripe, and portly, like an old Bacchus, it waxes night after night.
Donald C. Peattie
To the one who delights in the sovereignty of God the clouds not only have a ‘silver lining’ but they are silver all through, the darkness only serving to offset the light!
Arthur W. Pink
Our group has been in Asia since 1981 in mining, oil and gas. Now we want to mine not silver and gold, but great stories and people, and change the world of cinema, and we want to do that by walking in the footsteps of Wu Tianming.
Robert Friedland
When I was a kid in the ’60s, I went shopping in downtown Silver Spring. Hecht’s, JCPenney, the little retailers – they sponsored all my sports teams.
George Pelecanos
We once employed a girl in Texas to produce a fanzine, and after meeting her there she seemed fine. Then the letters started and they got strange and she began to claim we were an item. She also sent me a rhinestone cow bone sprayed silver and mounted on a plinth. Don’t ask me why.
Paul Young
Berlin was the first, the very first to give me an award. I am eternally grateful to them. It sits on my desk – the Silver Bear. All the others are stored away. It’s the only one I look at. It watches me while I work.
Alexandre Desplat
To be born in Wales, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but, with music in your blood and with poetry in your soul, is a privilege indeed.
Brian Harris
Almost nothing is presented to you on a silver platter. You have to really work for it.
Katarina Witt
It has therefore been justly observed that however honestly the coin of a country may conform to its standard, money made of gold and silver is still liable to fluctuations in value, not only to accidental, and temporary, but to permanent and natural variations, in the same manner as other commodities.
David Ricardo
I never thought that the possession of money would make me feel rich: it often does seem to have an opposite effect. But then, I have never had the opportunity of knowing, by experience, how it does make one feel. It is something to have been spared the responsibility of taking charge of the Lord’s silver and gold.
Lucy Larcom
Connie drove a silver Camry with rosary beads hanging from her rearview mirror and a Smith& Wesson stuck under the seat. No matter whatwent down, Connie was covered.
Janet Evanovich
Illium, with his wings of silver-kissed blue and a face designed to seduce both males and females, not to mention his ability to do the most impossible acrobatics in the air, would provide a worthy diversion. The fact that he’d decided to ditch half his clothing was just icing on the cake.
Nalini Singh
The primary reason I’m in real estate, oil, gold, and silver is because the U.S. dollar has become the peso the world. It’s becoming more and more worthless as the U.S. is the world’s biggest debtor nation.
Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve not found ! one single mutual fund, one single real estate investment, any gold, silver or anything else that has given me higher returns than: me investing in myself.
