True Americanism is practical idealism. Its aims, instead of being materialistic and mechanical, are idealistic to the point of being Utopian. In this way, the U.S. can provide and express ideals that strike a chord in humans everywhere – a declaration of independence on behalf of all the peoples of the world.
Maurice Saatchi
The severity of punishments ought to be relative to the state of the nation itself. Stronger and more easily felt impressions have to be made on a people only just out of the savage state. A lightning strike is needed to stop a fierce lion who is provoked by a gunshot.
Cesare Beccaria
I love the game, it’s the greatest game on earth, that’s why I can’t understand all of this talk about trying to make the game better. People talk about the high strike zone and changing this and that. Why? To speed up the game? That’s the beauty of baseball. There is no time element.
Eric Davis
Your strike will not win. You cannot be allowed to succeed.

Tim Hudson
My parents got ahead in the news business with wits, guts, and a creative interpretation of ‘fair game.’ They leased their first helicopter in 1985, when KTLA news crews were on strike. Maybe the crews had good grievances, maybe not. Either way, my parents ignored the strike and went to work.
Katy Tur
Number one, from a tackling standpoint, we teach strike zone hits, and we want to hit absolutely as hard as we can in that strike zone, and that’s absolutely what we call a batter in the batters box from the chest all the way down to the knees.
Dan Quinn
The daily calendar seemed, to me, like a kind of cartoon black hole, and you didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that that couldn’t be sustained indefinitely. That’s why I pulled the plug on that one after the ’02 edition. Kind of a preemptive strike.
Gary Larson
My favorite growing up was Tino Martinez, so I think that would be cool to strike out your favorite player as a kid.

Stan Musial

James T. Walsh
When I’m training, I come to the gym twice a day and sometimes three times. My coach and I make our schedule: wrestle in the morning, strike and conditioning, jujitsu later. And we mix it up as well. I always move everything around. I don’t keep everything the same every day.
Amanda Nunes
I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people’s ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing.

Rahul Dravid
Can any nation claim, guarantee, that there will be no terror strike?

Miguel Cabrera

Chris Gethard
If workers are more insecure, that’s very ‘healthy’ for the society, because if workers are insecure, they won’t ask for wages, they won’t go on strike, they won’t call for benefits; they’ll serve the masters gladly and passively. And that’s optimal for corporations’ economic health.
Noam Chomsky
Success is like a lightning bolt. It’ll strike you when you least expect it, and you just have to keep the momentum going. You have to strike when the iron is hot. So for me, I just kept striking and striking to polish out the sword that I was making.

Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.

Daniel Lubetzky
Obviously, when I go in at No. 11 it stands to reason that we will have a better chance of scoring runs or batting out time if the batsman at the other end takes most of the strike. That’s because, as my place in the order suggests, he is a better batsman than me.

It’s difficult to mark Ronaldo. I think he has a lot of qualities. He has all the abilities a striker can possesses. He’s very good with the head, the right foot, the left foot. His strike is the same whatever the feet.

Helen Keller
What we need to do is strike the right balance in our teams for all three formats of the sport.

Willam Belli
I look at all my opponents, and they could be something else. They could go out and get a normal, regular job. I look at myself and I can’t do that. I have a strike on my back. I can’t have a normal job. So, I’ve got to fight for everything I’ve got.
Derrick Lewis
It is possible to lead astray an entire generation, to strike it blind, to drive it insane, to direct it towards a false goal. Napoleon proved this.

Gabe Kapler
My passion for gardening may strike some as selfish, or merely an act of resignation in the face of overwhelming problems that beset the world. It is neither. I have found that each garden is just what Voltaire proposed in Candide: a microcosm of a just and beautiful society.

Carry out the republican principle of universal suffrage, or strike it from your banners and substitute ‘Freedom and Power to one half of society, and Submission and Slavery to the other.’

John Sununu
When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired.

Noam Chomsky
Ultimately, very few people parent their kids in ways that strike anybody else as reasoned, appropriate or sane.
Adam Mansbach

James Comey
The topic of leadership is a touchy one. A lot of leaders fail because they don’t have the bravery to touch that nerve or strike that chord. Throughout my years, I haven’t had that fear.
Kobe Bryant
If there is no fundamental science then there is no basis for applied science. We have to strike a balance. 23 years ago the World Wide Web was born here. It has changed the world dramatically.

Mary Harris Jones
When I am playing baseball, I give it all that I have on the ball field. When the ball game is over, I certainly don’t take it home. My little girl who is sitting out there wouldn’t know the difference between a third strike and a foul ball. We don’t talk about baseball at home.

Mikis Theodorakis
I have been lucky to strike a balance between the off-beat and commercial films.

Krystal Ball
As far as inspiration is concerned, I only have one person – Madhubala. She was beautiful like a wax doll. And I just love her eye movement and those pure emotions which strike your heart.
Mawra Hocane
My strength is my unpredictablity. I can wrestle, I can strike, I can move fast, and I do a good job of covering up. And because of my experience, I’m able to put myself in good positions in the ring. The guys I fight, they have to be ready for anything.
Tyron Woodley
I’m not always trying to strike out guys. It just kind of happens sometimes.

I’d like to continue to reduce the amount of balls I swing at outside the strike zone. I’ve been told I have a really low number, one of the lowest percentages in the game, but there’s no reason it shouldn’t be the lowest.
Joey Votto
It would probably strike the average politician as absurd to argue that the best way to fix the economy is to stop trying to ‘fix it.’

Emily Thornberry
I’m trying to strike a balance between Bollywood and Hollywood.

Clare Short

Sun Tzu
The men whose manhood you have broken will loathe you, and will always be brooding and scheming to strike a fresh blow.

Because when they strike it can be that quick that if they’re within range, you’re dead, you’re dead in your tracks. And his head weighs more than my body so it’s WHACK!

Lynn Nottage
There is something that Governments care for far more than human life, and that is the security of property, and so it is through property that we shall strike the enemy. Be militant each in your own way. I incite this meeting to rebellion.
Emmeline Pankhurst
‘Salaryitis’ is when you become so accustomed to that salary that you no longer have the gumption to pull out of the rut and strike out on your own. It destroys the nerve of ambitious, imaginative men, and bowing to it has meant sure defeat for more people than any other sickness, mental or physical.
E. Joseph Cossman
I encourage young people to feel passionately about important issues including climate change. But to suggest that they should strike during school hours is grossly irresponsible.

Charles Sanders Peirce
Well, one thing’s very clear, that terrorism isn’t just a threat which is external to Western countries. It’s not simply a foreign menace that comes from overseas to strike our cities. It can and it does, as we now know, come from within our own countries and from inside our own populations.
Pauline Neville-Jones
Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.
Babe Ruth

Eric Clapton
‘Quantum of Solace’ was a bit of a different circumstance than a lot of my other films because you’re stepping into a franchise, and also in that particular film, we’re dealing with a script from the writer’s strike, which was difficult to handle because there was never time to really develop a finished script.
Marc Forster
A boycott is, inherently, a blunt instrument. It is an imperfect weapon, a carpet bomb, when all involved would prefer a surgical strike.
Conor Oberst
I have never made statements like, ‘I’m quitting TV’ or ‘I’m quitting Bollywood.’ I have always wanted to strike a balance between the two.
Mona Singh
When you’re in between the white lines, the game face is on. I was only focused on the task at hand – out, safe, ball, strike – leaving little time to think about how special a player, moment or game happened to be.
Doug Harvey
My advice to organizations I work with is always to be proactive rather than simply reactive when it comes to human rights issues. After all, the important process of improving company policies and practices must be carried out without having to be prompted by a labour strike, factory collapse or other crisis.
Cherie Blair
From the preemptive strike that destroyed Egypt’s air force during the Six-Day War, to the daring raid on Entebbe, to using all available means to slow the Iranian nuclear program, Israelis have combined strength with ingenuity to keep the country’s enemies at bay.
Ted Deutch
Rather than doing a hero-oriented film, I love being a part multi-starrer film, because such films always strike a chord with audience.
Biju Menon
Firefighters don’t go on strike.
Denis Leary
I’m not an abrasive person. I do speak my mind, but my goal is never to offend. I don’t intentionally want to strike a chord.
Trevor Noah
I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later.
Helena Christensen
So all the system was running down and collapsing. Mrs. Thatcher became the leader of the Conservative Party in February 1975, and she clearly wanted to strike out and do something different.
Kenneth Baker
It never surprises me how good Shaun is. Even the coaches are surprised by the things he does and I can understand why. He can strike the ball so hard, yet his legs are only about 12 inches long. But I’ve been watching him do things like that ever since we were kids. I know what he’s capable of.
Bradley Wright-Phillips
You gotta strike while the iron’s hot.
Josh Schwartz
It is often seen that in households where all members are exposed to the same danger, or again in schools or troops where everyone lives the same life, disease does not strike everyone indifferently.
Elie Metchnikoff
I’m always amazed when a pitcher becomes angry at a hitter for hitting a home run off him. When I strike out, I don’t get angry at the pitcher, I get angry at myself. I would think that if a pitcher threw up a home run ball, he should be angry at himself.
Willie Stargell
Speed is vital. You got to strike fast. Fads have short lives, and you got to get what you can – like the case of the Pet Rock.
Ken Hakuta
I got into a bad habit of dropping my elbow and pushing the ball to the plate instead of getting on top of it and using some leverage to get it down in the strike zone or get some depth with the ball.
Matt Cain
Typically, being under the strike zone with the sinker isn’t a big issue. I need to be a little bit higher with the strike zone earlier in the count. If you miss under with one here and there when you’re ahead, it’s really not an issue.
Jake Arrieta
In 1986, I had gone on a hunger strike with Anand Patwardhan rooting for an alternative land for slum dwellers. My mother got very nervous and told my father to tell me that, ‘what am I doing?’ He sent me a telegram that read: ‘Best of luck, comrade!’
Shabana Azmi
Sometimes, I think the best kind of poem is one in which there is an acute balance between what is humorous and that which is very serious. That balance is very hard to strike. But it can be done.
N. Scott Momaday
Propaganda is a soft weapon; hold it in your hands too long, and it will move about like a snake, and strike the other way.
Jean Anouilh
Unfortunately, terror is now linked to immigration, and anyone with dark skin or a beard or a Muslim name is suspect. Russia, France, then the United Kingdom, and now even Germany have no qualms about going far beyond their borders to strike at the enemies of their countries.
P. Chidambaram
I would argue that the next President, either Bush or Gore, should strike a ‘national’ posture, exhibiting generosity toward the defeated opponent, but proceeding with determination to implement an agenda.
Richard V. Allen
When I was at Stratford, the very first thing that I was commissioned to work on was trying to make a musical out of the documentary material about the General Strike, which was the next big historical event in England, after the First World War.
Trevor Nunn
When I arrived, I felt the spotlight shining brightly on me, and I knew the sharks were ready to strike if I did not pan out and prove myself to be the showman and the player the college ranks had labeled me to be.
Pete Maravich
Football has end zones and goal posts; basketball has the hoop, and hockey the goal cage. Baseball is the only game with an imaginary box: the strike zone, which the umpire determines at his own discretion.
Richard Corliss
The ‘Living-Wage Campaign’ at Harvard is like a Boston winter: you know it’s going to strike, but wonder only when and how hard.
Vivek Ramaswamy
Here’s the reality: There is always a credible threat, and terror can strike at any time, anywhere, especially as lone wolf attacks backed up by Islamic ideology become more prevalent.
Katie Pavlich
I think I’ve always been good so God wouldn’t strike me dead.
Heather Locklear
Contrast that with the call of the Liberal Democrats in April, when they were prepared to call upon the British people to participate in a 24-hour strike. It shows how far to the right the Labour Party’s gone.
Arthur Scargill
If the adjustment made by a court can be accepted or not, it will be refused whenever the men can gain more by continuing the strike, with whatever of violence that involves.
John Bates Clark
You get annoyed about things in real life, and then the tragic thing is that while you are moaning on the awful injustice and suffering of something, something grimly comic will then strike you about it, like a parasite feeding off the misery of the world.
Stewart Lee
Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil.
J. Paul Getty
The hate and scorn showered on us Negro officers by our fellow Americans convinced me that there was no sense in my dying for a world ruled by them. I made up my mind that if I got through this war I would study law and use my time fighting for men who could not strike back.
Charles Hamilton Houston
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
John D. Rockefeller
What is the highest secret to victory and peace? To will what God wills, and strike a league with destiny.
William R. Alger
Over the years, I’ve learnt how to strike a balance between both my lives and give quality time to my passion as well as to my family. Yes, it is tiring at times, and every working woman goes through the phase.
Malaika Arora Khan
I would say that if you really wished to be a working member of the community, don’t go out on strike because then there’s no work and no potential of work.
Dick Wolf
To stop terrorists before the strike, we must do three things: deny them entry into the country, curtail their freedom of action inside the country, and deprive them of material and moral support from within the country.
Richard Perle
According to the FBI and the director of national intelligence, Syria’s becoming a perfect platform to strike our nation. I’ve got a very simple strategy as your president against ISIL. Whatever it takes, as long as it takes, to defeat them.
Lindsey Graham
Now is the time for us to strike. We must strengthen our foothold in Asia, to ensure no nation overtakes us.
Lawrence Summers
It would be a tragedy if the remarkable international coalition against terrorism, successfully marshalled in the aftermath of 11 September, were to fragment over a unilateral U.S. strike against Baghdad.
Charles Kennedy
It’s hard to strike that balance: to tell a kid that life isn’t fair, but also recognize and enforce in them the reality that their choices matter.
J. D. Vance
The human element and human judgment around understanding the physics of machines and the process, and how those come together, I think there’s going to be a balance we all need to figure out how to strike.
Jamie S. Miller
The owners said that they wanted the salary cap and refused to promise that they would abide by the rules of the just-expired contract after the season ended. Believing we had no choice, the players went on strike in August of 1994.
David Cone
Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.
Oliver Cromwell
I don’t really watch video, but I see the replay; like when I do strike out, and I’m walking back to the dugout, I look up and see if they do show the replay of me swinging and missing.
Freddie Freeman
Anything you strike, anything you shake or rattle, or just anything that can be picked up, and you can create a sound.
Evelyn Glennie
What we know is that probably the face of tennis post Covid-19 will not be the same anymore. The economic crisis probably is going to strike us really hard. All the business in general, but also the tennis business.
Patrick Mouratoglou
There was a time when content could be manipulated with money, but today we have surpassed that. Now, only good content will create ripples and strike a chord because the artistes are connecting directly with their listeners through social media.
Jubin Nautiyal
At the end of the day, all we’re trying to do is get the hitter off balance. Get him in a position where he’s not strong in the strike zone.
Jake Arrieta
How that works is our first season was the year we had a threatened writers’ strike, so what we did was that instead of doing 22 episodes, we did 30. We put 10 in the bank.
Christopher Meloni
My mother listened to all the news from the camp during the strike. She said little, especially when my father or the men who worked for him were about I remember her instinctive and unhesitating sympathy for the miners.
Agnes Smedley
Since January 2003, at the height of the debate on the possible unilateral strike against Iraq, I have advocated for a reinstatement of the military draft to ensure a more equitable representation of people making sacrifices in wars in which the United States is engaged.
Charles B. Rangel
Poetry should surprise by a fine excess and not by singularity, it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
John Keats
In ‘The General Strike,’ we celebrate those who bring a new vision for the world to the table. People who stand for workers rights, human rights, a just representative political system, and a new mode of doing business where sustainability is the norm not the exception.
Justin Sane
Traditional arguments for the existence of God and contemporary attempts to use fine-tuning and cosmology to back up the case for his existence always strike me as kinds of games, since hardly anyone believes on the basis of these arguments at all.
Julian Baggini
While I had no intention of ending the series after ‘The Spellmans Strike Again,’ I did close many doors in that book and, with the fifth one, I was opening a lot of doors and not finding anything behind them and then opening another door and another until I found something. It was a while before I found my stride.
Lisa Lutz
It’s so much work to make a movie, and for me it has to get me off my butt. To get me actually writing you have to strike something inside, you have to hit a power main to get the energy. You have to strike something you care about.
Rian Johnson
The sixth move of doom? Yeah. So John Cena went to China, took some lessons, and all of a sudden, now he’s got a bad palm strike. Listen, I’ve been traveling the world for years and I’ve been beating up people with martial arts techniques from far superior styles and techniques. So, I ain’t worried about that.
Samoa Joe
If you think back to the beginning of the label, we knew we had to strike quickly and aggressively and go for the brass ring.
Scott Borchetta
We will build in Britain a cyber strike capability so we can strike back in cyber space against enemies who attack us, putting cyber alongside land, sea, air and space as a mainstream military activity.
Philip Hammond
I have a very unsatisfactory and incomplete knowledge of Brooklyn and cannot discuss specifically either what you can do here or what possibilities the city shows in an artistic way. I am not a foreigner but coming here as I do after a long stay abroad, I think things here strike me much as they strike a foreigner.
Gutzon Borglum
I like sports, and swimming is my favorite. Doing physical exercises keeps one fit and healthy and helps one work more efficiently. I think we all need to strike a balance between work and relaxation. This can keep us energetic and help us do our job better.
Xi Jinping
I remember the ’70s constantly being winter in Manchester and the Irish community in Manchester closing ranks because of the IRA bombings in Birmingham and Manchester, and you know the bin-workers’ strike, all wrapped up in it… They were violent times. Violence at home and violence at football matches.
Noel Gallagher
If you’re going to vote on a television contract, there is a certain rationality to saying that the same structures that are applied to Health Plan participation should be placed on the right to vote on a strike.
Dick Wolf
If the U.S. and its allies can invade a weaker country on the excuse it is abetting terrorism, then why should not India, say, launch a pre-emptive strike against Pakistan on the self-same grounds?
Linda Colley
A great deal of what is presumed to be intractable or inevitable in this world doesn’t strike me that way at all.
Katherine Boo
I think that if you can work and travel, that is the best deal you can strike.
Brian Gleeson
The power to stay your hand is far greater than the power to strike with your hand and hinsa has no place in the society.
Ram Nath Kovind
I know when I get to 0-2, 1-2, when I’m ahead in the count, that I hold a distinct advantage over every single hitter. I have so many options because I don’t have to work within the strike zone anymore.
Max Scherzer
If ISIS strikes, it’s going to strike Americans – not Republicans or Democrats. This is not partisan politics.
Ryan Zinke
The late brilliant actions in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas divided and weakened the enemy on the Rappahannock, and the auspicious moment seems to have arrived to strike a great and mortal blow at the Rebellion, and to gain that decisive victory which is due to the country.
Ambrose Burnside
Good character consists of recognizing the selfishness that inheres in each of us and trying to balance it against the altruism to which we should all aspire. It is a difficult balance to strike, but no definition of goodness can be complete without it.
Alan Dershowitz
When you step away from doing something that you have always been doing and then you return to it, you have a different perspective. You get that desire and the will to strike at everything.
Preity Zinta
Strike rates depend on the surfaces you play on.
Gautam Gambhir
But Freedom Strike was actually quite cool.
Tone Loc
Silicon Valley is actually a prime target for an ICBM missile strike. It occurred to me as I has touring Apple Park that if I was concerned about Americans’ safety and the symbol of America’s future I would think that those is Silicon Valley as the most vulnerable. That’s where you would be attacking the future economy.
Ro Khanna
The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.
Sun Tzu
You’ve probably never thought about it before unless you happen to write for a living, but professional writers are doomed to spend most of their waking hours sitting by themselves at a desk, staring at a blank computer screen and waiting for lightning to strike.
Terry Teachout
I try and strike a balance between being sensible and sensitive.
Rana Daggubati
Laughter is a Trojan horse to enter into direct contact with the unconscious, strike the imagination, and trigger visceral reactions.
Maurizio Cattelan
Today we are united, strong and on the move. Today we have a strong strike fund. Today we have the resources to run large-scale organizing campaigns against global employers. Today we have $100 million in the bank.
James P. Hoffa
Kim Jong Un, like all totalitarian leaders, wants above all to ensure his survival. He is convinced that a nuclear strike capability is necessary to deter the United States and South Korea from threatening his regime, and to extract concessions that might prolong its life.
Tom Malinowski
The euro zone must strike for a better governance structure, and there is no alternative to that. Euro zone countries must either develop an exit mechanism for troubled members, or it should embrace a closer political union: an effective governance structure that is capable of enforcing rules.
Lou Jiwei
Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil.
J. Paul Getty
I’m a very jovial guy. I like to laugh, and when things strike me as funny, I don’t hide the fact that it’s humorous to me. It almost doesn’t matter where I’m at: I will burst out and laugh if it’s funny to me.
Michael Rooker
Davos is an extravagant bun-fight of the vanities, where the ‘haves’ gather to strike deals with the ‘have-mores.’
Richard Quest
My dad was not someone who you would strike with a billy club and he wouldn’t strike back. It just wasn’t in him.
Condoleezza Rice
God as my witness, may He strike me down if this allegation is true.
Paul Crouch
Every time I’d read about the stone circles, it would describe how they worked as an astronomical observance. For example, some of the circles are oriented so that at the winter solstice, the sun will strike a standing stone.
Diana Gabaldon
Our nation will have 50 percent less ability to do whatever our bidding is because the joint strike fighter program was canceled. There is nothing that is going to be a replacement besides the Joint Strike Fighter.
James F. Amos
There are men who strike at liberty under the term licentiousness.
Jonathan Mayhew
Environmental policy must strike a balance between the earth’s best interests and our citizen’s pressing needs.
Jim Clyburn
Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
Alexander Pope
I had a lovely time growing up. But I was very aware of the miners’ strike going on, friends’ families collapsing, and people being unemployed.
John Tiffany
Propaganda is a soft weapon; hold it in your hands too long, and it will move about like a snake, and strike the other way.
Jean Anouilh
In the early 70s I was offered a job on a newspaper. At the last minute the offer was withdrawn because there was a strike on. I bought a nightclub and turned it into a restaurant instead.
Rick Stein
I was a part of the planning and attack package intelligence team for the strike against Syria in 1983 – in which we lost a pilot and had another one captured until Jesse Jackson got him out – and numerous other operations against Syria both before the Iraq war and during the insurgency.
Malcolm Nance
As far back as 2008, the Canadian Forces brass was explicit: drones with ‘all-weather precision strike capabilities’ were a ‘requirement’ for Canada’s overseas operations.
Terry Glavin
Judges who take the law into their own hands, who make up constitutional ‘rights’ in order to strike down laws they oppose, undermine the people’s right to have their values shape public policy and define the culture.
Orrin Hatch
Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart.
Henry Clay
I strike up conversations all the time and it is very interesting, finding out about things I know nothing about.
Peter Ackroyd
The Time to Succeed Coalition brings together an unprecedented group of leaders from education and business, communities and academia to say that it is time to strike the shackles of an outdated school calendar from our disadvantaged schools.
Chris Gabrieli
I’m going to continue to try to strike a balance, because I really, really do love doing stand-up, and I don’t see why it should affect the acting.
Patton Oswalt
If you strike out or look bad on the field, we’d get on each other. If you can’t take the heat, you gotta get out of the kitchen.
Mickey Rivers
As a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Congressional Joint Strike Fighter Caucus, I have been a staunch supporter of the production of the F-35 since day one and understand the importance of its production for my fellow Texans and our nation’s security.
Marc Veasey
I would have thought that if you’re going to try to punish the Syrians and prevent them from using chemical weapons again, the thing to do is a one-time strike. Maybe a cruise missile strike at one or two of their air bases just so they know what they’re going to gain from using chemical weapons on the battlefield.
Elliott Abrams
Feeling has as much to say as the words do. You can have the greatest words in the world and if they’re not believable, they don’t strike a chord and they’re not said convincingly, it’s not a great song.
Sam Phillips
A fast is not a hunger strike. Fasting submits to God’s commands. A hunger strike makes God submit to our demands.
Edwin Louis Cole
The Labor Department’s Hall of Honor recognizes men and women – like Cesar Chavez, Helen Keller and the Workers of the Memphis Sanitation Strike – who have made invaluable contributions to the welfare of American workers.
Tom Perez
With the newspaper strike on, I wouldn’t consider dying.
Bette Davis
Knowing the strike zone is very important, but I think the first thing is knowing yourself, knowing what things you do well.
Tony Gwynn
Poetry should surprise by a fine excess and not by singularity, it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
John Keats
For all your days be prepared, and meet them ever alike. When you are the anvil, bear – when you are the hammer, strike.
Edwin Markham
Rockefeller once explained the secret of success. ‘Get up early, work late – and strike oil.’
Joey Adams
With shorter clubs, your ball position should be just back of middle, to really promote hitting the ball first on a downward strike.
Ernie Els
Plus the public’s attention span is so short right now, if a skater doesn’t strike while the iron is hot… well it’s not like people will forget you, but they just won’t care anymore.
Brian Boitano
Obama learned from Ronald Reagan that it helps to strike an optimistic tone. But genuine optimism deriving from American exceptionalism, it turns out, does not come naturally to him.
John Podhoretz
How often are the perpetrators of hate-crimes discovered to be self-loathing? Valued individuals do not strike out against strangers.
Harvey Fierstein
Israel’s decision on whether to strike or not is dictated not from the atmosphere and not from American or European promises but is based on the Iranian project. And I don’t think the Iranians would agree to anything that would satisfy Israel.
Ronen Bergman
I grew up in a family that despised displays of strong emotion, rage in particular. We stewed. We sulked. When arguments did occur, they were full-scale conniptions, and we regarded them as family failings. Afterward, we withdrew from one another and tried our best to strike the event from our memories.
Koren Zailckas
Going into a room and saying, ‘I’m a black lesbian’ – it’s a strike against you.
Dee Rees
It is just as cowardly to judge an absent person as it is wicked to strike a defenseless one. Only the ignorant and narrow-minded gossip, for they speak of persons instead of things.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
There’s not a single strike that good preparation can’t negate.
Eddie Alvarez
The General Strike has taught the working class more in four days than years of talking could have done.
Arthur Balfour
What reader wants to be told what attitude to strike?
Ian Mcewan
And what could be a hotter ticket than the improbable triumph of ‘The Book of Mormon,’ the musical-comedy moon shot of the season? Its creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, of Comedy Central’s ‘South Park,’ are the most unlikely Rodgers and Hammerstein team ever to bowl a thundering strike.
James Wolcott
Some guys, first pitch of the at-bat gets called a strike – maybe it’s a ball off or below their knees, and it gets called a strike – and then the next two pitches, they swing at balls in the dirt, and all of a sudden, they’re yelling at the umpire about that first pitch. You just swung at two balls in the dirt, buddy.
Aaron Judge
I’m from a working-class background, and I’ve experienced that worry of not having a job next week because the unions are going on strike. I know that because I don’t come from a wealthy background.
Annie Lennox
It’s easy for people to strike if they’re not working on a regular basis.
Kate Flannery
The buried talent is the sunken rock on which most lives strike and founder.
Frederick William Faber
I love the look of books published by the firm of Rupert Hart-Davis: They strike me as handsome, elegant, and inviting. I’ll pick up almost anything with that imprint, especially if it’s in a jacket or priced low.
Michael Dirda
For my diet, I choose mostly organic. But in general, I am a big believer in trying to strike a balance with everything.
Liya Kebede
I wouldn’t have supported invoking Taft-Hartley to help George Bush end a strike.
Kevin de Leon
The – the sort of thing that I want to do is to strike a resonant chord of universality in other people, which is best done by fiction.
Joyce Carol Oates
Life’s so unpredictable. You never know when the next high or low will strike you. The trick is just to flow with the tide.
Zeenat Aman
Strike the right balance between your outfit and makeup. Make a statement with one, not both.
Madeline Zima
Environmental policy must strike a balance between the earth’s best interests and our citizen’s pressing needs.
Jim Clyburn
We have our great days and our bad days. No matter what bad day I go through or strike out four times in a row, I still want to have that great attitude and go after the game and go talk to the kids and not worry about the game and let them know that this is what matters.
Anthony Rendon
For all your days be prepared, and meet them ever alike. When you are the anvil, bear – when you are the hammer, strike.
Edwin Markham
Facebook’s position with rival tech companies boils down to this: if you want access to all the information we’ve collected, strike a deal with us.
Daniel Lyons
Wouldn’t it be exciting if all women just went on strike? Just a woman’s strike. Everything would fall apart pretty quickly then, wouldn’t it?
Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Veterans report that service dogs help break their isolation. People will often avert their eyes when they see a wounded veteran. But when the veteran has a dog, the same people will come up and say, ‘Hi’ to pet the dog and then strike up a conversation.
Al Franken
I mean everyone’s always spoken about fast bowlers and especially myself as a strike bowler, but I look at myself as somebody who could hold down the runs, you know, over 200 games, I’ve taken a lot of wickets but I’ve got a pretty decent economy rate.
Dale Steyn
When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired.
Cesar Chavez
You just don’t turn your back on a going business and strike out in a new one if you don’t think it has a chance.
George Mikan
I just don’t do much social media. No, it is more important to strike a balance between ballet and real life.
Yuan Yuan Tan
You don’t have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger – where they can’t afford to be second to strike – the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high.
Dennis Ross
I truly find inspiration everywhere. I always tell students, and young people starting out, that the single most important skill, next to listening, is to pay attention. You never know where inspiration will strike.
Nick Wooster
Maybe it’s due to my west coast liberal upbringing, but, the idea of parallel universes doesn’t strike me as being too far out there.
Joshua Jackson
It will sometimes strike a scientific man that the philosophers have been less intent on finding out what the facts are, than on inquiring what belief is most in harmony with their system.
Charles Sanders Peirce
Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.
H. L. Mencken
I had a style before I was signed, but now I’m developing my commercial sound as well as trying to strike a balance between authentic music and music that the masses will love.
James Arthur
Every now and then, I strike something that just goes click, you know, in my head. As Gertrude Stein used to say, it rings the bell, and I feel, this is great.
James Laughlin
Rockefeller once explained the secret of success. ‘Get up early, work late – and strike oil.’
Joey Adams
Someday we’ll learn the whole story of why George W. Bush brushed off that intelligence briefing of Aug. 6, 2001, ‘Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.’ But surely a big distraction was the major speech he was readying for delivery on Aug. 9, his first prime-time address to the nation.
Frank Rich
Never seem wiser, nor more learned, than the people you are with. Wear your learning, like your watch, in a private pocket: and do not merely pull it out and strike it; merely to show that you have one.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
I have to give importance to my personal life, my family, parents, and sisters. I hope I can strike the right balance.
Ram Charan
I mean, hunger strike is almost a ritual in a Russian prison colony. It actually has been going back to Soviet times. It’s a way of protesting.
Masha Gessen
The symbolism of the climate strike is that if you adults don’t give a damn about my future, I won’t either.
Greta Thunburg
It’s much more likely that an asteroid will strike the Earth and annihilate life as we know it than AI will turn evil.
Oren Etzioni
In a leadership role in Iraq and in running my own business, what I’ve learned is if you don’t listen, you’re going to strike out. You’re going to fail miserably. The people you work with have got to know you’re engaged and you’re listening.
Brad Wenstrup
Actually, because I’m so small, when I strike an open A chord I get physically thrown to the left, and when I play an open G chord I go right. That’s how hard I play, and that’s how a lot of my stage act has come about. I just go where the guitar takes me.
Angus Young
Players are ready to play, We’re not on strike. It’s a lockout.
Dwyane Wade
We know from the material that was recovered from the bin Laden compound that bin Laden was looking at the 10th anniversary of 9/11 as an opportunity to strike yet again at the U.S. homeland.
John O. Brennan
When you have the opportunity, you strike.
Rod Laver
Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
Alexander Pope
And almost every one, when age, Disease, or sorrows strike him, Inclines to think there is a God, Or something very like him.
Arthur Hugh Clough
There shall be no solution to this race problem until you, yourselves, strike the blow for liberty.
Marcus Garvey
The England I write about doesn’t strike me as the real one.
Martha Grimes
I went West and took part in the strike of the machinists – the Southern Pacific Railroad, the corporation that swung California by its golden tail, that controlled its legislature, its farmers, its preachers, its workers.
Mary Harris Jones
You get annoyed about things in real life, and then the tragic thing is that while you are moaning on the awful injustice and suffering of something, something grimly comic will then strike you about it, like a parasite feeding off the misery of the world.
Stewart Lee
I like the sound of a Silvertone amp for myself. It’s kind of cleaner guitar sounds when necessary, maybe a little less metal-sounding. But it really doesn’t matter what amp I play through; it’s really the way I voice chords and play guitar, how I strike the strings.
Brian Bell
There are a lot of subtle things that are harder to stamp out of a culture in terms of male entrepreneurs being mentored more than female entrepreneurs… male entrepreneurs getting several strikes against them before they’re kind of let go, whereas female entrepreneurs, it’s kind of one strike and you’re out.
Jennifer Hyman
I went to jail for residential burglary. I got a strike, and I was 19 years old.
YG
I think it is wrong that we went against The U.N. and that we have alienated our allies and invaded a country that hasn’t threatened us, that it is a pre-emptive strike.
Rosanne Cash
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Ludwig van Beethoven
Korea remains in a very difficult position, politically, diplomatically and economically. Thus, it is very important to strike a balance with global powers. How well balanced Korea will be will determine what kind of roles we could play in the future.
Park Won-soon
I really do try hard to be a good teammate. I can’t run very fast, but I try to always run hard. I may strike out a lot, but I try to walk to set up the guys who are hitting after me.
Jim Thome
If you walk through life in a fighting pose with your fists balled up and ready to strike, someone, someday, somewhere, is going to want to test your mettle.
Neal Boortz
Although we must be prepared for a catastrophic large-scale strike, a cyber armageddon, the reality is that we have been living with a constant barrage of cyberattacks for some time. The trend, I believe, will continue.
James Clapper
We were brothers off the field, but there was no love lost on it. We fought like cats and dogs. Wes was always trying to strike me out, and meantime, I was always trying to hit a home run off him.
Rick Ferrell
We never know when or where harm may strike but, we can take proactive steps to protect ourselves.
John Bel Edwards
I used to be a teacher, and I know how difficult it is to strike a balance between focused conversation and an atmosphere which prevents creativity and thought.
Nick Hornby
The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.
Ulysses S. Grant
Balls and strikes are the basic tenet to everything in baseball. From the perspective of hitting, pitching, offense and defense, it’s all about the strike zone and how the battle is waged there between the pitcher and hitter.
Doug Harvey
If workers are more insecure, that’s very ‘healthy’ for the society, because if workers are insecure, they won’t ask for wages, they won’t go on strike, they won’t call for benefits; they’ll serve the masters gladly and passively. And that’s optimal for corporations’ economic health.
Noam Chomsky
It is just as cowardly to judge an absent person as it is wicked to strike a defenseless one. Only the ignorant and narrow-minded gossip, for they speak of persons instead of things.
