We went through ten years of the Limp Bizkit thing, and I didn’t know what to do.
Courtney Love
I grew up in a family of ten. You had to have, like, a burst appendix to get the floor…. My brothers and sisters are very quick, intense, brilliant, very sarcastic people. And they were always right there with you, right there, missing not one little throat clearing.
Mary Robison
For the first ten years after I got out of graduate school, I studied success. I read every book I could get my hands on and took every training I could find, and that allowed me to become an expert in this area. I learned how to create high self-esteem and success in my own life and in the lives of others.
Jack Canfield
A right result, at this time, will be worth more to the world, than ten times the men, and ten times the money.
Abraham Lincoln
London was not designed for cars. Come to that, it wasn’t designed for people. It just sort of happened. This created problems, and the solutions that were implemented became the next problems, five or ten or a hundred years down the line.
Terry Pratchett
Nine people out of ten (in Germany and England, perhaps ten people) would rather wait for their rights than fight for their rights.
Sylvia Townsend Warner
When I grew up there wasn’t air-conditioning or anything of that nature, and this old car had a wall thickness of about ten inches. So we had a little warmer house in the winter and a little cooler in the summer.
Merle Haggard
I watch like, Steve Jobs interviews, I don’t really watch TV. I stopped watching TV when I turned like ten because my parents were like, ‘TV’s really bad for you.’
Jaden Smith
A wolf eats sheep but now and then, ten Thousands are devour’d by Men.
Benjamin Franklin
I figure I’ll be champ for about ten years and then I’ll let my brother take over – like the Kennedys down in Washington.
Muhammad Ali
Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking about all the dumb things I do every day… If I live to be eighty and I do ten dumb things each day… That would be about two hundred and ninety thousand dumb things… When you add up all the dumb things you do, it’s best to use round figures.
Charles M. Schulz
A beginning idea for a book might be: a boy emerges from a hole in the ground. He enters a house. The book will take place in the first ten minutes following his arrival.
Jesse Ball
Sexual freedom and liberation has to be of your own making. I’m stunned when I hear about friends’ children, ten or twelve years old giving blow jobs. I just don’t like the girls being used or exploited in that way. It’s just indiscriminate sexual relating. It’s just the isolated things.
Lily Tomlin
There’s something cathartic about swearing 150 times after spending ten hours in the editing room.
Liev Schreiber
I think having a good agent is key. I’ve been with mine for ten years now, and she’s very honest with me. There are a lot of times I’ve sent her books that were not so good because I was tired of writing, or panicked about money, and she’s told me flat out, “You don’t want this to be your next book. Trust me.”
Sarah Dessen
I look out the chair while eating my pillow. I open the wall, I walk with my ears. I have ten eyes to walk with and two fingers to look with. I put my head on the floor to sit down, I put my bottom on the ceiling. After eating the music box, I spread jam on the rug for a great dessert.
Eugene Ionesco
It’s one day at a time, that’s all there is to it, and so I don’t have to worry about it. All I do is, okay, I do not have to drink. And if I feel like it, I postpone it for ten minutes, and that way I find something else to do in the meantime.
Malachy McCourt
It takes ten years, usually, to make a dancer. It takes ten years of handling the instrument, handling the material with which you are dealing, for you to know it completely.
Martha Graham
Daughters can spend ten percent more than a man can make in any usual occupation. That’s a law of nature, to be known henceforth as ‘Harshaw’s Law.
Robert A. Heinlein
Do you resolve to do the right and to love the true, depend upon it you will get no assistance from this world. Of its maxims, nine out of ten are false, and the other one selfish; and even that which is selfish has a lie at the bottom of it.
Charles Spurgeon
I went to an exhibition at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum about Shanghai, about how courtesans had been influential in bringing western culture to Shanghai. I bought a book and in it saw this striking group of women in a photograph called ‘The Ten Beauties of Shanghai’.
Amy Tan
I’d never won the Stanley Cup so I asked Cournoyer right after the final if this was like winning the Cup. He said, ‘This is ten times better.’ I believed him.
Dennis Hull
There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
it’s a good idea to wait a few months before joining anything when you arrive at a village. A bookseller friend who retired to nearby Oxfordshire, and was worried he might be bored, got himself on to every village committee in the first six months, and spent the next ten years extricating himself.
Jilly Cooper
What makes women happy? Nothing, for more than ten minutes at a time, so stop worrying.
Fay Weldon
If there were a mile high mountain of granite, and once every ten-thousand years a bird flew past and brushed it with a feather, by the time that mountain was worn away, a fraction of a second would have passed in the context of eternity
Lois Duncan
I’m actually getting to the stage where places I travelled to for the first time in the early 1990s are now unrecognisable. I go to coral reefs that I went to ten years ago when they were swarming with fish and sharks, and now they are barren deserts.
Steve Backshall
Life is exponential. Two becomes four, becomes ten thousand, becomes a plague.
Paolo Bacigalupi
I get butterflies just like everyone else. So I meditate for at least ten minutes before I perform. I breathe in and out slowly for ten minutes, and that literally helps me slow my heart rate and relax.
Matthew Moy
A thank-you can be just as meaningful as a soulful ten-page message.
Drew Barrymore
The truth is, one can work for another ten years and be playing parts, pushing yourself as hard as you can, and you are still accused of that. You’re still tainted with that brush. I’m not called Jude Law, I have three names; I’m called ‘Hunk Jude Law’.
Jude Law
I was a lawyer for about ten years. The law teaches one to see things from all different angles.
Alex Flinn
Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Lower the bar. Actually spending ten minutes clearing off one shelf is better than fantasizing about spending a weekend cleaning out the basement.
Gretchen Rubin
Men!” I said. “You all a bunch of chauvinist morons” Stephanie Plum – Ten Big Ones
Janet Evanovich
Meditation does not mean just sitting quietly for five or ten minutes. It requires conscious effort. The mind has to be made calm and quiet; at the same time, it has to be vigilant so as not to allow any distracting thoughts or desires to enter.
Sri Chinmoy
Growing up as a girl is always traumatizing, especially when you have the deadly combination of greasy skin and getting your boobs at ten. But I think it’s good to grow up that way. It builds character.
Tina Fey
Nothing I do can’t be done by a ten-year-old…with fifteen years of practice.
Harry Blackstone, Jr.
Ten thousand men possess ten thousand hopes.
Resolved to live with all my might while I do live, and as I shall wish I had done ten thousand years hence.
Jonathan Edwards
When I was a young boy, I preferred cats to dogs. From the age of seven or eight onwards I just felt more comfortable with cats. And I felt more comfortable with girls, I didn’t really like hanging out with guys. When I was about ten or eleven, I was friendlier with the girls in my school than with the guys.
Ian Anderson
I know it sounds corny, but I’d love to improve people’s lives, especially socially… Making the world more open is not an overnight thing. It’s a ten-to-fifteen-year thing.
Mark Zuckerberg
Show me one couple unhappy merely on account of their limited circumstances, and I will show you ten who are wretched from other causes.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
What’s so seductive about the efficient markets hypothesis is that it applies nine years out of ten. A lot of the time it works. But when it stops working, you blow up.
Niall Ferguson
The Art of Elysium is a program I’ve volunteered with for close to ten years, and I work with Unicef and Young Storytellers. My passion is really working with children since they are the future.
Danielle Panabaker
The man in the coon skin cap in the pig pen wants eleven dollar bills, you’ve only got ten.
Bob Dylan
If you simply try to tell the truth you will, nine times out of ten, be original without ever having noticed it.
C. S. Lewis
A laborer might last ten years or so before expiring. But individual workers in the death camp of sugar were survived by their culture, which was constantly re-Africanized by fresh arrivals. To that plantation culture, the music of our hemisphere owes no small debt.
Ned Sublette
I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. I was very athletic, playing volleyball and softball. I did gymnastics for about ten years, too.
Jasmine Tookes
There were ten concentration camps in France from 1939 on.
Martha Gellhorn
The bigger budget films only shoot about a page or two a day, so there’s very specific amount of time spent on detail and getting each tidbit exactly how they want it. In a movie or TV show, you shoot eight or ten pages and you aren’t afforded as much time to do each scene.
Dan Payne
I’m appalled at how many people my age, or even five or ten years younger, have no tangible memories of important history that happened when we were growing up.
Jello Biafra
There are plenty of bands who never get in the charts and it doesn’t mean that they’re not any good. Actually, a lot of the top ten is filled with stuff that just sounds the same. I could guess what’s in there now – probably a bit of GaGa, Beyonce and some U.S. R&B males.
Ellie Goulding
Utopia lies at the horizon. When I draw nearer by two steps, it retreats two steps. If I proceed ten steps forward, it swiftly slips ten steps ahead. No matter how far I go, I can never reach it. What, then, is the purpose of utopia? It is to cause us to advance.
Eduardo Galeano
I’ve a theory that one can always get anything one wants if one will pay the price. And do you know what the price is, nine times out of ten? Compromise.
Agatha Christie
I made a big family when I was working at ‘Vogue’ for ten years, and I’m still friends with a lot of them.
Carine Roitfeld
When Darius offered him ten thousand talents, and to divide Asia equally with him, “I would accept it,” said Parmenio, “were I Alexander.” “And so truly would I,” said Alexander, “if I were Parmenio.” But he answered Darius that the earth could not bear two suns, nor Asia two kings.
Ten out of ten people die. You start thinking about that and it really makes you start to ask the big questions: Where did I come from? Where am I going when I die? What happens when we step out of here? What’s out there?
Kirk Cameron
To me marriage is for five or ten years.
My first was in 1994 and it’s ten years ago already. It’s been ten years and I’m still around. I won a stage again, like I did last year and the year before.
Richard Virenque
With five to ten hundred pure-minded young women threading the streets of the village every evening unattended, vice must slink away, like frost before the rising sun.
Anna Julia Cooper
Once colon cancer becomes symptomatic, nine times out of ten it is too late.
Kevin Richardson
Once you have mastered the ten thousand states of mind, it’s paranirvana, the absorption into the stillness forever.
Frederick Lenz
…ultimately it come down to, are you making or are you destroying? If you try very hard to create ways of living, create dreams of what is possible, then you win. If you don’t, you may make a fortune in ten years, but you’re not going to be read in twenty years, and that’s that.
John Gardner
One word of God can do more than ten thousand words of men to relieve a distressed soul.
John Flavel
If you take a book of a thousand pages on the Second World War, in which 50 million people died, the concentration camps occupy two pages and the gas chambers ten or 15 lines, and that’s what one calls a detail.
Jean-Marie Le Pen
Nine out of ten Americans believe that out of ten people, one person will always disagree with the other nine!
Colin Mochrie
There are so many musicians, friends of mine, who play shows for ten people a night, or always desperately wanted a record contract. So even if every person on the planet loathes me, I have nothing to complain about. My job is not a bad job, so I can’t complain.
Today the United States has the highest prison population in the world, over 2.1 million people. … We lock people up at a rate that is seven to ten times that of any other democracy.
Eve Ensler
High school taught me a valuable lesson about glasses: Don’t wear them. Contacts have always seemed like too much work, so instead I just squint, figuring that if something is more than ten feet away, I’ll just deal with it when I get there.
David Sedaris
One of the most successful men I have known never carried a watch until he began to earn ten thousand dollars a year.
Charles M. Schwab
Yes, about ten minutes.
Duke of Wellington
For every time we regret keeping still, there are about ten times we regret speaking up.
James Alexander Thom
That’s the secret of how to enjoy writing and how to make yourself meet high standards,” said Mrs. Berman. “You don’t write for the whole world, and you don’t write for ten people, or two. You write for just one person.
Kurt Vonnegut
I’m always at least ten minutes early.
Richelle Mead
Ten years ago I also had a very difficult decision to make when we had (Carlo) Cudicini giving fantastic performances in Chelsea’s goal for many years. I had in my hands a 22-year-old goalkeeper I thought could be in Chelsea’s goals for years and years and years and this situation is quite similar.
Jose Mourinho
I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.
Virginia Woolf
If I owe Smith ten dollars and God forgives me, that doesn’t pay Smith.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Popular women use positive, optimistic language in their online profiles, not buzzwords like “future thinker”. Here are the ten most often used words I found: easy-going, love, laugh, laid-back, optimistic, outgoing, fun, down-to-earth, pleasure, adventure.
Amy Webb
A Tory minister can sleep in ten different women’s beds in a week. A Labour minister gets it in the neck if he looks at his neighbour’s wife over the garden fence.
Clement Attlee
There’s something that happens in that delivery room, when a woman becomes ten times more a woman, and a guy becomes six times less a man. You feel really dopey and useless and like a spectator. I did, anyway.
Paul Reiser
Well, we’re just now seeing the reductions in mortgage rates. The mortgage rates are based on the ten-year rate and the Fed controls the overnight or the shorter rates.
Franklin Raines
If a hundred-foot oak tree had the mind of a human, it would only grow to be ten feet tall!
T. Harv Eker
I never get over feeling bad about tearing open a beautifully wrapped present. It takes ten seconds to destroy a work of art that took someone ten minutes to accomplish.
Andy Rooney
We are the same people as we were at three, six, ten or twenty years old. More noticeably so, perhaps, at six or seven, because we were not pretending so much then.
Agatha Christie
Say what you will about the ten commandments, you must always come back to the pleasant fact that there are only ten of them.
H. L. Mencken
Do that, and the best you can hope for is that people will ignore you. More realistically, you’d be skinned alive, or possibly sentenced to ten year hard labor writing microcode for waffle irons and toaster ovens.
Scott Meyers
Of course they remember. But it’s not gonna be about revenge; it’s gonna be about the Big Ten championship.
Shannon Brown
I swear the sparrows called us ten kinds of idiot when we did it.
Tamora Pierce
It usually takes me at least ten days and a number of snacks to go from feeling something to being able to articulate what I felt.
Paul Ford
I can find ten more who will die for the Bible for every one who will actually read it.
Charles Spurgeon
For a woman a man will do many things that he’d turn his back on in an instant when alone; things he’d back away from, nine times out of ten, even when drunk adn with a bunch of his friends egging him on.
Stephen King
The difference between a human being ten years of age and one fifty years of age lies altogether in the matter of toys.
Austin O’Malley
The 10,000-hours rule says that if you look at any kind of cognitively complex field, from playing chess to being a neurosurgeon, we see this incredibly consistent pattern that you cannot be good at that unless you practice for 10,000 hours, which is roughly ten years, if you think about four hours a day.
Malcolm Gladwell
It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune, and when you have it, it requires ten times as much skill to keep it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ten years ago, TV cookery shows were about a man or a woman following recipes. Now, it’s all about journeys and campaigns and less about the actual chopping and dicing. That’s what I’d like to do with magic.
Drummond Money-Coutts
The countdown reached ten seconds and I could almost hear an invisible crescendo of stirring background music. ‘Anchors aweigh!’ Five, four, three, two, one… and we had ignition!
Gene Cernan
Women are usually only interesting to studio executives when they are fecund, between the ages of 15 and 30. I decided to get through the really tough patch, around 50, by just cutting my price and playing ten years older. I didn’t want to have to wait until I was an old lady to play one.
Tyne Daly
We spent most of our life almost like street rats just running around the street until we were ten years old.
Quincy Jones
I think that most of my writer friends are really compulsive. I think that’s great. It’s wonderful for them. It’s just not my bag. It’s not the way I work. But again, it’s probably why my friend has ten books out and I have two.
Junot Diaz
WikiLeaks has been publishing for ten years, and in those ten years, we have published ten million documents, several thousand individual publications, several thousand different sources, and we have never got it wrong.
Julian Assange
The ten most powerful two-letter words in the English language are: If it is to be, it is up to me.
Harvey Mackay
Ten years is a pretty good run for anything.
Babatunde Adebimpe
In some parallel universe, there was a Gansey who could tell Blue that he found the ten inches of her bare calves far more tantalizing than the thirteen cubic feet of bare skin Orla sported. But in this universe, that was Adam’s job. He was in a terrible mood.
Maggie Stiefvater
Good nature is the cheapest commodity in the world, and love is the only thing that will pay ten percent to both borrower and lender.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Over the next ten years, everything that has a cord is going to have data in it.
Tony Fadell
No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally – and often far more – worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.
C. S. Lewis
Praise your kids. Inspire and motivate your players with praise. Ten years from now it won’t matter what your record was. Will your kids love you or hate you?
Jim Harrick
The occurrence of any event where the chances are beyond one in ten followed by 50 zeros is an event which we can state with certainty will never happen, no matter how much time is allotted and no matter how many conceivable opportunities could exist for the event to take place.
Emile Borel
Every good work should have at least ten meanings.
Walter De Maria
One bachelor is an irritation. Ten thousand bachelors are a war.
Orson Scott Card
It’s best to start the discipline of generosity when the amounts are small. It’s easy to give ten cents out of a dollar; it’s a little harder to give a hundred thousand out of a million.
Jim Rohn
I know you’re always supposed to want more of everything. But in truth, I’m having a nice ebb and flow of being in my daughter’s life every day and getting to keep my work life alive. I’m not nominated for ten thousand everythings every minute, but I am acting and telling stories I love.
Helen Hunt
A mule will labor ten years willingly and patiently for you, for the privilege of kicking you once.
William Faulkner
When I was ten, my pa told me never to talk to strangers. We haven’t spoken since.

Stands the Church clock at ten to three? And is there honey still for tea?
Rupert Brooke
If ten men are carrying a log – nine of them on the little end and one at the heavy end – and you want to help, which end will you lift on?
William Whiting Borden
We’ve found that frogs are counting the number of chemicals in the water. If you expose them to two chemicals, there’s a slight delay in metamorphosis; if you expose them to ten, there’s even more of a delay. No single compound will do this.
Tyrone Hayes
I want to make music that I know that ten years from now, you can put it on and say “This is a great record”.
Warryn Campbell
I was a bouncer for ten years in New York City.
Vin Diesel
Cath couldn’t stop thinking about Levi and his ten thousand smiles.
Rainbow Rowell
Not whether we accomplish anarchism today, tomorrow, or within ten centuries, but that we walk towards anarchism today, tomorrow, and always.
Errico Malatesta
I used to love ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe,’ and I can still remember listening to them before I would fall asleep. I can remember the first ten minutes of the book perfectly, but whether I knew the rest of it was slightly more dicey.
William Moseley
I yawned and stretched luxuriously in the morning. I make noises when I stretch because it feels ten times better than stretching silently.
Kevin Hearne
Atheism, nine times out of ten, is born from the womb of a bad conscience. Disbelief is born of sin, not of reason.
Fulton J. Sheen
When I look at ‘Napoleon Dynamite”s style I’m reminded of how I spoke when I was an eight-year-old boy. It was just like capturing the essence of, ‘Duh!’ It was just like the stuff that I would say when I was like eight, nine, ten years old.
Jason Reitman
Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.
Bill Gates
The radiant sun sends from above ten thousand blessings down, nor is he set so high for show alone.
George Granville, 1st Baron Lansdowne
Our society is so abnormal that the normal man never dreams of having the normal occupation of looking after his own property. When he chooses a trade, he chooses one of the ten thousand trades that involve looking after other people’s property.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Over the last ten years, breaking into comics has changed so much. There used to be specific ways about how to do it … and now, just like there are so many different ways people are getting exposed to comics, there’s no single way that people are breaking in anymore.
C. B. Cebulski
One enemy can do more hurt than ten friends can do good.
Jonathan Swift
Hollywood’s two polar types are the cynically drunken writer aggressively nursing a ten-year-old reputation and the theatrically self-conscious hermit who strides the boulevard in sandals, home-made shorts and a prophetic beard, muttering against the Age of the Machines.
Christopher Isherwood
Within the next five years, I predict major changes in the art world and it will look nothing like it did ten years ago. Just like the sport of skateboarding, the new innovators will define the future. I believe the art world will become more vibrant and usher in a strong healthy market for new works.
Mark Edward
Who’s that new guy with the snooty accent who came out and talked to the police?” Evan persisted. “He looks like some kind of male model.” “That’s just my cousin Ian,” Amy explained. “Not much of a family resemblance,” Evan noted sourly. “He’s like a twenty-fifth cousin, ten times removed.” Evan was not satisfied.
Gordon Korman
Cherish the friend who tells you a harsh truth, wanting ten times more to tell you a loving lie.
Robert Breault
The doctor said I should do a lot of walking, so I walk to the mound nine or ten times a game.

Joe J. Christensen
For the information of young hunters, I will just say, in this place, that whenever a fellow gets bad lost, the way home is just the way he don’t think it is. This rule will hit nine times out of ten.
Davy Crockett
We are entitled to personal revelation, especially when it concerns our own or our children’s lives and what has been foreordained for them. This is true whether our children number one or ten, and whether the Lord sends them to us through natural means or adoption. This is a glorious knowledge.
Richard M. Eyre
Each year, the The U.S. Army & its contractors SHOOT, STAB, MUTILATE, & KILL more than TEN THOUSAND live animals in cruel training exercises.
Oliver Stone
We look on those approaching the banks of a river all must cross, with ten times the interest they excited when dancing in the meadow.
Hester Lynch Piozzi
Far be it for the public schools to teach this, but the U.S.A. was founded on basic Judeo-Christian principles. Don’t believe me – take a trip to Washington D.C. and tour the Supreme Court building. There you will see a sculpted copy of the Ten Commandments on the wall.
Bill O’Reilly
You can’t find an uglier urban environment than the centre of Hollywood, but then you go to Griffith Park, you go to the beach, you go to the mountains, and it’s rural. I live up in the Hollywood Hills and I have frogs, owls, coyotes, mountain lions – but I’m ten minutes from the centre of the city.
What writing ROOM taught me was that I know exactly how to be the perfect mother, but I’m not willing to do it for more than ten minutes at a time.
Emma Donoghue
All the children of America, up to age seven or eight or nine or ten – they’re really great artists. So here we’ve got this amazing work that very few people pay any attention to, and it’s not valued by the culture.
Chris Martin
I served with General Washington in die Legislature of Virginia…and…with Doctor Franklin in Congress. I never heard neither of them speak ten minutes at a time, nor to any but the main point.
Thomas Jefferson
Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.
Napoleon Bonaparte
I first came to London when I was 22 and working as a roadie. Having watched the ‘News At Ten’ all my life, I thought Big Ben was going to be massive, but I was underwhelmed.
Noel Gallagher
The thing with film is that it’s so wide-reaching compared to comedy. When I release my comedy special, half a million people will see it. If I release a movie, five to ten million people will see it.
Mike Birbiglia
The Law given from Sinai was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code.
John Quincy Adams
Travel is similar to therapy. You can go to the best psychologist in the world for ten years. If you don’t feel like actively shifting anything in your life, there is nothing that person can do to change you.
Elizabeth Gilbert
I genuinely haven’t really had a rebellious phase. I think it’s just because of the way I was brought up. I think it’s because I left home when I was ten years old.
Emma Watson
The fact that I have a little ten-megapixel camera with me all the time, is way better than having the greatest camera in the world sitting at home on a desk instead of on my shoulder.
David Burnett
Ten soldiers wisely led will beat a hundred without a head.
Mix salt and sand, and it shall puzzle the wisest of men, with his mere natural appliances, to separate all the grains of sand from all the grains of salt; but a shower of rain will effect the same object in ten minutes.
Thomas Huxley
You can follow the action, which gets you good pictures. You can follow your instincts, which will probably get you in trouble. Or, you can follow the money, which nine times out of ten will get you closer to the truth.
Jack Nicholson
Better to have one woman on your side than ten men.
Robert Jordan
I have enough money not to do pictures ever. I’m seventy years old. I don’t want to get up at 6:30 in the morning and learn ten pages of dialogue to do with a bunch of creeps I don’t like. It’s gotta be fun for me.
Michael Caine
I can tell if someone is talking to me because I’m on ‘Friends’ or cause they just think I’m neat. You know I don’t think I’ve ever spent more than five or ten minutes with somebody who was ogling me because they recognized me from the show.
Matthew Perry
What a gun does to a person who survives is devastating as well. Whether it`s the surgeries, I had over ten, the years of physical therapy, the emotional and physical scars that you endure and have to come to grips with the fact that you are different.
Jackie Speier
I’m going to brush my hair and change my clothes if we’re going out. That gives you two ten minutes to get it out of your system, so I’m not stuck with a couple of frustrated horndogs all day. But no pressure,” she added on a laugh as she swung out of the room and started upstairs.
Lynsay Sands
It is interesting to note that during the last ten years Washington’s ‘Farewell Address’ has begun to reappear in college textbooks – minus the four religious warnings.
David Barton
What is a constitution? It is a booklet with twelve or ten pages. I can tear them away and say that tomorrow we shall live under a different system. Today, the people will follow wherever I lead. All the politicians including the once mighty Mr. Bhutto will follow me with tails wagging.
Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq
Intelligence is ten million rules.
Douglas Lenat
True men” … are strong willed, have dignity in their demeanor, serenity in their expression. They are cool like autumn, warm like spring. Their passions arise like the four seasons, in harmony with the ten thousand creatures, and no one knows their limits.
There was one public school for boys, and one for girls, but Jewish children were admitted in limited numbers – only ten to a hundred; and even the lucky ones had their troubles.
Mary Antin
It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, we are going to legalize marijuana no matter what happens in ten years, because when 60% of the American public wants something, they’re going to get it.
Allen St. Pierre
In vain we call old notions fudge, And bend our conscience to our dealing; The Ten Commandments will not budge, And stealing will continue stealing.
James Russell Lowell
She wore white heirloom lace about her throat And in her hair a bright golden feather A pearl like a plum hung ripe from her neck But her smile fetched ten gold together
Shannon Hale
Do they allow tipping on the boat? – Yes, sir. Have you got two fives? – Oh, yes, sir. Then you won’t need the ten cents I was going to give you.
Groucho Marx
… even in houses commonly held to be ‘booky’ one finds, nine times out of ten, not a library but a book-dump.
Edith Wharton
For over ten years or so game music has developed into a very large market.
Nobuo Uematsu
My kids, they’re like nine or ten years old right now so you give ’em responsibilities just to keep them up on things. It ain’t just all about getting on the skateboard or putting your Heelys on, and swimming in the pool all the time. You gotta do stuff like wash dishes, take the trash out, feed the dog.
Big Boi
I think health-wise, pro-wrestling is probably ten times worse for you than MMA.
CM Punk
I never seemed to fit in. But it made me try to strive for things ten times harder.
Billy Corgan
For each illness that doctors cure with medicine, they provoke ten in healthy people by inoculating them with the virus that is a thousand times more powerful than any microbe: the idea that one is ill.
Marcel Proust
A real friend is someone you say a sentence to and they know ten thousand words behind that sentence.
Jackson Pollock
Corpse Pose sounds like no big deal, right? Then what’s so difficult about this spiritualized snooze? Forget about getting your feet behind your head. Just try lying still for ten minutes. With nothing left to do, you’re finally forced to come face to face with yourself.
Edward Vilga
I think Mike Gibbons was probably the greatest boxer that ever put a glove on. They called him The Wizard, The Phantom of the ring and he was that. I boxed with Mike about ten years and I never really hit him a hard punch during the time. Repeating again, Mike was one of the great boxers of the age.
Tommy Gibbons
I’ve been singing since I was nine or ten.
Kelli O’Hara
Hollywood movies of the Fifties, like The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, with their epic clash of pagan and Judeo-Christian cultures, tell more about art and society than the French-infatuated ideologues who have made a travesty of the “best” American higher criticism.
Camille Paglia
I believe I’ve still got lots and lots to do. When I left Herman’s Hermits in 1973, I said one day I’m gonna be in a Broadway show, and I thought it would be in 1974. Then, it took me ten years to do it, but I didn’t ever quit.
Peter Noone
For an everyday makeup look, I usually use Almay’s CC cream, then concealer, bronzer and maybe a bit of mascara. The whole thing takes me ten minutes. I apply everything with my hands and blend like crazy.
Kate Hudson
I am of a different mind ten times in the course of a day. But I resist the devil, and often it is with a fart that I chase him away. When he tempts me with silly sins I say, ‘Devil, yesterday I broke wind too. Have you written it down on your list?
Martin Luther
Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.
Ingrid Bergman
It always takes a man that never made much at any thing to tell you how to run your business, though. Like these college professors without a whole pair of socks to his name, telling you how to make a million in ten years, and a woman that couldn’t even get a husband can always tell you how to raise a family.
William Faulkner
Five or ten years ago, when it was clear the Internet was becoming a mainstream phenomenon, it was equally clear that a lot of people were being left out and could be left behind
Steve Case
Three of the ten principles governing the City of Joy are (a) tell the truth, (b) stop waiting to be rescued, and (c) give away what you want the most.
Eve Ensler
We had to depend on other institutions to do research on our behalf. We had to use the information that already existed to craft the best practices to distribute throughout the country. And we had to do all of that in ten months.
DeForest Soaries
A daughter is a mother’s gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of herself. -Author Unknown As long as a woman can look ten years younger than her own daughter, she is perfectly satisfied.
Oscar Wilde
You think publishing is tough but the music world is ten times tougher.
Jeffery Deaver
The Episcopalians don’t demand much in the way of actual religious belief. They have girl priests, gay priests, gay bishops, gay marriages? it’s much like the New York Times editorial board. They acknowledge the Ten Commandments? or “Moses’ talking points”? but hasten to add that they’re not exactly “carved in stone.”
Ann Coulter
The center of human nature is rooted in ten thousand ordinary acts of kindness that define our days.
Stephen Jay Gould
It’s up to the man to not be offended when she tells him what she needs. He shouldn’t say, “I know that!” And he shouldn’t say, “The woman that I had before you had ten orgasms without her telling me anything!”
Ruth Westheimer
Prince Asaka had joined the army only about ten days before its entry into Nanking and in view of the short time he was connected with this army I do not think he can be held responsible. I would say that the Division Commanders are the responsible parties.
Iwane Matsui
I got my first tennis racket on my seventh birthday. And because we had a tennis court in our backyard, I played every day. By ten I was playing competitively.
Tullian Tchividjian
If more than ten percent of the public likes a painting, it should be burned.
George Bernard Shaw
Cooking gives you the ability to grow as a person and to give yourself confidence. You can invite people around, you can sit down and eat together and it makes you feel about ten feet tall because you’ve done it with your own hands.
William Katt
Severe isn’t a word normally associated with a cold. Severe is for weather or third-degree burns…No one responds ‘severe’ when someone asks how her cold is.In fact, nine out of ten Americans respond to ‘How’s your cold’ with ‘It sucks.’ So there should be an It Sucks cold formula.
Celia Rivenbark
I haven’t dated anyone in the ten years since we lost Steve just because I feel a connection still with Steve.
Terri Irwin
But who is to decide who truly fears the Lord? The magistrate has no power to enforce religious demands. The laws of the First Table of the Ten Commandments are not regulations for a civil society or a political order. They belong to the realm of religion, not politics.
Roger Williams
I absolutely adore cows. They’re the most fascinating, gentle and beautiful animals. Their eyes are so amazing. I have ten that live on the land around my house. I love to talk to them. There are few things better than falling asleep in a field and being woken up by an inquisitive cow.
Mary Quant
My reputation as a ladies’ man was a joke that caused me to laugh bitterly through the ten thousand nights I spent alone.
Leonard Cohen
To a mathematician the eleventh means only a single unit: to the bushman who cannot count further than his ten fingers it is an incalculable myriad.
George Bernard Shaw
I actually think I’m more of a turtle than Verne is. Where Verne is up on two legs and moving at full speed and doesn’t pull his head into the shell very often, I in reality was five or ten minutes later to every recording session.
Garry Shandling
You can’t count on notoriety lasting very long, and there’s no way to predict whether anyone will care about your books or you in three years, let alone ten or twenty.
Dan Chaon
We are at our human finest, dancing with our minds, when there are more choices than two. Sometimes there are ten, even twenty different ways to go, all but one bound to be wrong, and the richness of the selection in such situations can lift us onto totally new ground.
Lewis Thomas
Ten million new millionaires will be created by 2016, and you can become one of them – especiall y if you are in direct selling, technology or home-based business.
Paul Zane Pilzer
Ten years into it, I can finally go, ‘Oh, I just want to make a record that’s fun to make and I don’t have to prove that I deserve to be here.
Michelle Branch
Why ask a question whose answer would demand ten more questions?
David Mitchell
A hundred struggle and drown in the breakers. One discovers the new world. But rather, ten times rather, die in the surf, heralding the way to that new world, than stand idly on the shore.
Florence Nightingale
…2009 saw the eighth ‘ten-year flood’ of Fargo, North Dakota, since 1989. In Iowa, Cedar Rapids was hit last year by a flood that exceeded the 500-year flood plain. All-time flood records are being broken in areas throughout the world.
Al Gore
After an acquaintance of ten minutes many women will exchange confidences that a man would not reveal to a lifelong friend
Page Smith
I-I am going to be a storm-a flame- I need to fight whole armies alone; I have ten hearts; I have a hundred arms; I feel too strong to war with mortals- BRING ME GIANTS!
Edmond Rostand
I pissed away over ten million dollars
On dope and crack
I passed away deader than a door knob
But now I’m back
Al Jourgensen
I’m dazzled by your facility. In ten days you’ll have written six stories! I don’t understand it… I’m like one of those old aqueducts: there’s so much rubbish cogging up the banks of my thought that it flows slowly, and only spills from the end of my pen drop by drop.
Gustave Flaubert
Ten, I thought, he’s definitely a ten
Elizabeth Chandler
It took me ten years and seven books to bag an agent – it took me that long to start writing good.
Jasper Fforde
Hollywood’s martyr-mythology leaves out the fact that the famed Hollywood Ten, for example, were in fact members of the Communist Party, which advocated the violent overthrow of the U.S. government in violation of the Smith Act and which took orders directly from Moscow.
Jonah Goldberg
If I don’t get at least one e-mail every ten minutes, I feel unloved. Even junk mail makes me feel seen. Sad, I know. Sigh.
Chris Abani
If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.
Will Harvey
It’s much less demanding to think about God’s will for your future than it is to ask Him what He wants you to do in the next ten minutes.
Francis Chan
Of the twelve companions of Thorin, ten remained. Fili and Kili had fallen defending him with shield and body, for he was their mother’s elder brother.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Here is a vocation that will bring you more satisfaction than if you became a millionaire ten times over: Develop the extraordinary skill for detecting the burdens of others and devote yourself daily to making them lighter.
John Piper
I’ve only been gone a week,” I reminded him. Well, a week’s a long time. It’s seven days. Which is one hundred and sixty-eight hours. Which is ten thousand, eighty minutes. Which is six hundred thousand, for hundred seconds.
Meg Cabot
It’s the weirdest thing. Evan [Goldberg] was just telling me how weird it is that we won’t be working on Sausage Party, to which I said, “Hopefully, we’ll be working on Sausage Party 2.” It was almost ten years ago when we came up with the idea.
Seth Rogen
When you’re in your early 20s your love life seems to explode every 20 minutes or so. By the time you’ve reached your thirties, it is every five or ten years.
Patrick Marber
You can never have enough trophies. If there were ten to be won a year I’d want to win them all! That’s not being greedy, it’s just a natural thing.
Thierry Henry
We have nine ships and in the next two years will have ten, eleven and twelve. So things are going very nicely and all because of that program that people thought was mindless and so forth.
Gavin MacLeod
Every fool becomes a philosopher after ten days of rain, so I spare you the inside view of my heart.
Marian Hooper Adams
The more I see of the country, the less I feel I know about it. There is a saying that after five years in the north every man is an expert; after ten years, a novice.
Pierre Berton
America, where thanks to Congress, there are forty million laws to enforce the Ten Commandments.
Anatole France
The ideals of the party were close to me, and I have tried to adhere to those principles all my life. In essence, they are the same as in the Ten Commandments in the Bible. I will never change my convictions
Valentina Tereshkova
…within ten years 80% of our economic legislation, perhaps even fiscal and social as well’ would come from the EU.
Jacques Delors
The lowest budget U.S. films are ten times times better (than shooting in Tibet).
Joan Chen
It takes approximately forty years for innovative thought to be incorporated into mainstream thought. I expect and hope that orthomolecular medicine, within the next five to ten years, will cease to be a specialty in medicine and that all physicians will be using nurition as an essential tool in treating disease.
Abram Hoffer
If the Richter scale could measure human calamities, the loss of a child would register a ten.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin
A strong, brave man is born each month, each year God gives a sage to men, A poet each ten years, perhaps, but an unselfish person,—when?
Ridgely Torrence
In a wood they call the Rouge Bouquet,
There is a new-made grave today,
Built by never a spade nor pick,
Yet covered with earth ten meteres thick.
There lie many fighting men.
Dead in their youthful prime.
Joyce Kilmer
The Ten Commandments have never been replaced as the moral basis upon which society rests.
Edwin Louis Cole
The biggest opportunity in 2013 is in Africa. It has seven out of the ten fastest-growing economies in the world. In Nigeria alone there are 100 million people with mobile phones. In total, 300 million Africans – five times the population of Britain – are in the middle class.
David Miliband
There is no man so good that if he placed all his actions and thoughts under the scrutiny of the laws, he would not deserve hanging ten times in his life.
Michel de Montaigne
Hall of Love has ten thousand swords. Don’t be afraid to use one.
As long as you’re moving forward whether it be one step or ten feet man, you got to keep going.
Josh Barnett
I think that what kids watch now a days is different than what kids watch when I was young so I don’t know. I think that it’s up to the parents to decide. That’s the truth. I’m not a parent. I have no idea, but I think some parents let a ten year old watch it and some parents wouldn’t.
Mila Kunis
The dead cannot speak. But hitherto unknown information has emerged from the confidential archives of the Syrian presidency and foreign ministry, published in a new book by Bouthaina Shaaban, who spent ten years as Hafez’s interpreter and is still an adviser to his son Bashar.
Robert Fisk
I found that part of it towards San Salvador extending from north to south five leagues, and the other side which we coasted along, ran from east to west more than ten leagues.
Christopher Columbus
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
Decades have a delusive edge to them. They are not, of course, really periods at all, except as any other ten years may be. But we, looking at them, are caught by the different name each bears, and give them different attributes, and tie labels on them, as if they were flowers in a border.
Rose Macaulay
For lack of a few pinches of ordinary iodised table salt in the diet of a third world pregnant mother, a child can lose up to ten IQ (Intelligence Quotient) points.
Sheryl WuDunn
I understand that these people are all there to see me ride, that that’s why they’re in the building, and whether I have ten people, or a thousand people come out to see me, they still came out to see me, and I take that to heart.
Mike Vallely
I can count on one hand the number of instrumental hits there have been over the last ten years.
Chuck Mangione
I just want my songs to be memorable, and for people to hear my songs in ten year’s time and remember the great times they had while listening to ’em.
Cher Lloyd
I’m a homebody times ten.
Charlie Puth
After ten years of word processing, I can’t even do hand writing anymore.
Douglas Adams
Research tells us that fourteen out of any ten individuals like chocolate.
Sandra Boynton
When I go to the cinema, I’m often frustrated because I can guess exactly what is going to happen about ten minutes into the screening. So, when I’m working on a subject, I’m always looking for the element of surprise.
Sergio Leone
It could not have been ten seconds, and yet it seemed a long time that their hands were clasped together. He had time to learn every detail of her hand.
George Orwell
We only need to walk or bike ten percent of the time to make a significant change in society. That is just two days of walking, bicycling or taking transit per month for a typical commuter.
Jeff Olson
He took a step toward her, than another, tentatively, gathering all his strength, as though about to throw a heavy switch that would, if his calculations were correct, bring light to a hundred cities and ten thousand darkened rooms. He was going to ask her to dance – that was all.
Michael Chabon
You think maybe if you just work harder and faster, you can hold off the chaos, but then one day you’re changing a patio light bulb with a five-year life span and you realize how you’ll only be changing this light maybe ten more times before you’ll be dead.
Chuck Palahniuk
There are a lot of things I might be good at, such as competitive figure skating, window washing from ten stories up, and being an open heart surgeon. I might also make an excellent Kamikaze pilot – except for the fact that I don’t want to learn how to fly and have no interest in taking my own life on behalf of Japan.
Jen Kirkman
Sensations are the great things, after all. Should you ever be drowned or hung, be sure and make a note of your sensations; they will be worth to you ten guineas a sheet.
Edgar Allan Poe
It is true that many Americans find the Commandments in accord with their personal beliefs. But we do not count heads before enforcing the First Amendment.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I come from television where I feel like I’m in people’s living rooms every day so it’s not crazy for me to think that like a ten year old would know, but, I don’t know.
Mila Kunis
Conventional names define a person’s past: ancestry, ethnicity, nationality, religion. I am not who I was ten years ago and certainly not who I will be in twenty years
I haven’t slept for ten days, because that would be too long.
Mitch Hedberg
After ten years in therapy, my psychologist told me something very touching, he said, “no hablo ingles.”
Dennis Wolfberg
To put to rest any doubts you might have… I’m jealous of every man who comes within ten feet of you. I’m jealous of the clothes on your skin and the air you breathe. I’m jealous of every moment you spend out of my sight
Lisa Kleypas
The mail amazes me. I sometimes get these letters that are ten pages, and handwritten, from women pouring their hearts out and, for security reasons, I can only respond with a headshot and ‘Dear so and so, be good. WM.’ It never feels like enough.
Wentworth Miller
As for critics, one mediocre writer is more valuable than ten good critics. They are like haughty, barren spinsters lodged in a maternity ward.
Peter Greenaway
Bullhorns are overrated: having ten times as many Twitter followers generates approximately zero times as much value.
Seth Godin
That depends on the man. I like breasts myself. A nice rack goes a long way in getting me to do just about anything. Even stupid things. (Phobos) You are so offensive! (Delphine) Oh, please, I’m ten thousand years old. You’re lucky I’m not more chauvinistic than I am. Babe, I’ve come a long way. (Phobos)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Ten masts make not the altitude
Which thou hast perpendicularly fell.
Thy life’s a miracle.
William Shakespeare
I visited my father for the full ten years that he was in prison, so we already had a deep and loving relationship, and remembered our mother at those times.
Sam Sheppard
In baseball, even the best hitters fail seven of ten times, and of those seven failures there are different reasons why. Some are personal failures, others are losses to the pitcher. You just get beat. In those personal failures, I felt I could have done better.
Ichiro Suzuki
Ten truths must you find during the day; otherwise will you seek truth during the night, and your soul will have been hungry.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Gazzy: “Just Ten?” Angel: “No.” Gazzy: “Five?” Angel: “No.
James Patterson
I’m pretty caring, loyal and loving to those who are close to me. Two of my friends are from school, so I’ve known them for more than 30 years. My best friend, Paul Fisher, sat next to me in English when I was ten or 11. If you asked him, he’d say I was loyal. I don’t think I’ve changed over the years.
Marc Warren
If a man is a fool, you don’t train him out of being a fool by sending him to university. You merely turn him into a trained fool, ten times more dangerous.
Desmond Bagley
I enjoyed being in ‘The Ten Commandments.’ That was a great experience – to suddenly become one of those holy people. I was holier than thou.
Yvonne De Carlo
Sometime over the past generation we became less likely to object to something because it is immoral and more likely to object to something because it is unhealthy or unsafe. So smoking is now a worse evil than six of the Ten Commandments, and the word sinful is most commonly associated with chocolate.
David Brooks
Go home and say to yourself, ‘I am a wayward, foolish child. But He loves me! I have disobeyed and grieved Him ten thousand times. But He loves me! I have lost faith in some of my dearest friends and am very desolate. But He loves me! I do not love Him, I am even angry with Him! But He loves me!
Elizabeth Prentiss
I want to make guys put the ball in play. If I give up ten hits, then I give up ten hits. But I want to work on making them earn it.
Dontrelle Willis
It costs ten times more to govern us than it used to, and we are not governed one-tenth as good.
Will Rogers
With each investment you make, you should have the courage and the conviction to place at least ten per cent of your net worth in that stock
Warren Buffett
I don’t think I can put my finger exactly on when remission occurred, because from that moment on, I left Western medicine and never looked back. I practiced every day for ten to twelve hours a day – spiritual studies, meditation, pranayama, yoga postures, Ayurvedic studies, deep, deep, powerful cleansings and fasting.
Brad Willis
There’s nothing a teacher likes better than ten minute videos. It’s not the whole class, but it’s not too short, it’s enough to wrap a lesson plan around.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Pilates introduced me to muscles I never even knew I had. Soon I started to feel longer and leaner. Ten years of Pilates has really changed my body for the better.
Lucy Liu
Movie theaters barely make any money. A movie can make a couple of thousand dollars, or could get lucky and make ten or fifteen thousand dollars, but theatrical releases don’t really sustain the work. For me, it’s the best sort of advertisement for anything else you’d want to do.
Robert Greene
there is ten times more in the world than would maintain all in yet unknown luxury. Yet how much misery there is in our midst; not because there is not enough, but owing to the misdirection of it.
Ernestine Rose
‘All in the Family’ took ten weeks to take off in 1971, and we were lucky to start in January, because if it had started in the regular fall season of 1970, I don’t know if we would have lasted. The ratings didn’t take off until the end of that fall season, when the other two networks ran out of fresh shows.
Norman Lear
You reached your level, you don’t want any more. We asked ten years ago, we were askin’ with the Panthers, we were askin’ in the Civil Rights Movement. Now those who were askin’ are all dead or in jail, wo what are we gonna do? And we shouldn’t be angry!?
Tupac Shakur
Ten years from now, I would like to see myself successful as a brand, like Jessica Simpson, with babies running around and a beautiful husband and my own reality show.
Nicole Polizzi
I’ve tried wearing more than one ring on one hand and it doesn’t look good. It’s overkill, I think. So I think a ring on either hand. Nine times out of ten I’ll go for pinky rings, but not always.
Tom Jones
The best anti-aging advice I’ve ever received? Drink a lot of water and have a plant-based diet. I also do mindful meditation with my daughter every day. It takes ten minutes. I think reducing stress plays a big part in anti-aging.
Carolyn Murphy
I really liked ‘Starter For Ten’ because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’ and I’ve always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.
James McAvoy
It is to be regretted that domestication has seriously deteriorated the moral character of the duck. In a wild state, he is a faithful husband…..but no sooner is he domesticated than he becomes polygamous, and makes nothing of owning ten or a dozen wives at a time.
Isabella Beeton
The first book that they gave me was Jeannie, a young teenager. I went on with her maybe ten books.
Dan DeCarlo
…(that) any general system of conveying passengers would … go at a velocity exceeding ten miles an hour, or thereabouts, is extremely improbable.
Thomas Tredgold
If you have the door to your office closed, you get more work done today and tomorrow, and you are more productive than most. But ten years later somehow, you dont quite know what problems are worth working on.
Richard Hamming
It has been nine years since the Supreme Court decision outlawing segregated schools, yet less than ten per cent of the Negro students in the South are in integrated schools. That isn’t integration, that’s tokenism!
Malcolm X
If you’re going to make a movie for ten thousand you can talk everybody into doing it for free. You could make a really good-looking movie right for ten grand, if you have an idea.
Steven Soderbergh
Morally considered, laughter is next to the Ten Commandments.
Josh Billings
I was ten when I got my first serious beating. It was rough.
David Bailey
Bill Viola is worth ten Scorseses.
Peter Greenaway
As the show’s executive producer, I envisioned something akin to “Gilligan’s Island” meets Lord of the Flies meets Ten Little Indians mets “The Real World.” “Survivor” marks a return to a core element of adventure: staying alive.
Mark Burnett
All these people I interview are worth ten times what I’m worth.
Graham Norton
What success I achieved in the theatre is due to the fact that I have always worked just as hard when there were ten people in the house as when there were thousands. Just as hard in Springfield, Illinois as on Broadway.
Bill Robinson
I worked with him for ten years until he died and it was the most wonderful time of my life.
Mark Oliphant
And how many hours a day did you do lessons?’ said Alice, in a hurry to change the subject. Ten hours the first day,’ said the Mock Turtle: ‘nine the next, and so on.’ What a curious plan!’ exclaimed Alice. That’s the reason they’re called lessons,’ the Gryphon remarked: ‘because they lessen from day to day.
Lewis Carroll
Ten minutes of a smartphone in front of your nose is about the equivalent of an hour long walk in bright daylight. Imagine going for an hour long walk in bright daylight and then thinking, “Now I’ll get some sleep.” It ain’t going to happen.
Daniel Kahneman
Imagine how a Teddy Kennedy or a Bill Clinton would take the news that one woman in ten, say, has the power to resist his blandishments by deadly force, and you’ll get a perfect idea of how a Charles Schumer or a George Bush feels about armed taxpayers.
L. Neil Smith
Donald Trump would never belong to a church that required a ten percent hit. He’s too smart.
Gene Weingarten
I think I might have been a more interesting actor, had more of a career earlier on, if I had more formal preparation. When I see something ten years later that I was in I think, ‘Boy, would I love to do that over.
Sam Elliott
Often, my central challenge is figuring out how do I build trust, how do I acquaint people who’ve just endured some terrible event – losing their child to murder, say, or being sexually assaulted – with the bizarre and sometimes invasive nature of in-depth interviews that aren’t just a quick list of ten questions?
Sarah Stillman
I bet you can’t eat ten bananas!” “I bet you’re right.
Sarah Dessen
There are two things that have been true throughout history in big hunks. You can find differences in ten years, but in 50 year hunks, 100 years hunks, you’ll find two things to be true. One, the world is always getting better. Two, people always think it’s getting worse.
Penn Jillette
My New Year’s Resolution List usually starts with the desire to lose between ten and three thousand pounds.
Nia Vardalos
I’d like to be a bigger and more knowledgeable person ten years from now than I am today. I think that for all of us as we grow older, we must discipline ourselves to continue expanding, broadening, learning, keeping our minds active and open.
Clint Eastwood
I decline to buy repentance at the cost of ten thousand drachmas.
Some authorities believe that one prosperous thought is more powerful than a thousand failure thoughts; and that two prosperous attitudes steadily held and expressed are more powerful than ten thousand failure attitudes!
Catherine Ponder
I suppose I’m led to do so by the fact of what happened to my contemporaries – people whom I’ve admired, people who I thought were ten times better than me when I was in my twenties and early thirties. I may have been right.
George Woodcock
Matisse makes a drawing, then he makes a copy of it. He copies it five times, ten times, always clarifying the line. He’s convinced that the last, the most stripped down, is the best, the purest, the definitive one; and in fact, most of the time, it was the first. In drawing, nothing is better than the first attempt.
Pablo Picasso
The things you’re crying about today, you might be laughing about in ten years … and then again … maybe not.
Mark Lowry
And if ten percent of men are gay and twenty percent of men are Chinese, what are the odds that a men chosen at random spends his free time and mealtime while on his knees.
Bo Burnham
The lives of most men are patchwork quilts. Or at best one matching outfit with a closet and laundry bag full of incongruous accumulations. A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.
Jesse Owens
I don’t know what I’m doing in the next five minutes and she has the next ten years figured out. I’ll worry about making it out of ninth grade alive. Then I’ll think about a career path.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Ten thousand people died, an entire town destroyed.
Barack Obama
In the past, war was confined for the most part to men in uniform, but with increased mechanization of armies and the introduction of air forces, there is an increased dependence on the home country, and eight to ten people working at home are now required to keep one man in the fighting line.
Frederick Banting
Men go into marriage with virtually no expectations whatsoever. Ten years later, the men are delightfully surprised to find out that it’s actually kind of nice, and the women have sort of had to take a nose dive from what they thought it was going to be.
Elizabeth Gilbert
After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over.
Alfred E. Perlman
The great difficulty about keeping the Ten Commandments is that no man can keep them and be a gentleman.
H. L. Mencken
I can never read this book, just like I can never see a movie that I wrote a screenplay for. I can read it and see it physically, but I can’t accurately judge it. I’m too close to it. If I read it ten times I’ll have ten different reactions.
Richard Price
Women work overtime, do double triple duty, juggle ten balls at once — children, careers, husbands, schoolwork, housework, church work, and more work — and when one of the balls drops, we think something is wrong with us.
Susan L. Taylor
You can not entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought.
Charles F. Haanel
I go through a thousand songs to find ten for a new record.
Conway Twitty
Directing is to fill anyone with a yearning to get back at ten o’clock next morning.
Tyrone Guthrie
When the new country came out ten to 15 years ago, people my age were almost too old. But it never stopped me. I never stopped writing. I never stopped recording.
Dolly Parton
Good evening and welcome to Have I Got News for You, the show that’s done for Friday and Saturday nights what ten pints of lager does for Sunday mornings, although I wouldn’t know, being more partial to cocaine personally. Allegedly.
Angus Deayton
I studied classical percussion for ten years. At one point I was thinking about going to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, but then I realized it’s actually not what I wanted to do.
Alycia Debnam Carey
Of course, one of the most disturbing features is the fact that while we have had roughly a ten year pause in the arms race where a lot of good work was done, this has now come to an end. For what we are seeing at the present time are new developments in anti-missile weaponry, drones, and so on.
Paul Virilio
In the common run of mankind, for one that is wise and good you find ten of a contrary character.
Joseph Addison
If Ansel Adams gets a thousand dollars a print, I want ten thousand.
Paul Strand
I did extensive, extensive recordings and made a classical CD-ROM set, which is still on the market. For ten years, it was by itself as the cream of the crop of samples.
Miroslav Vitous
The great Pacific Railway is commenced… Immigration will soon pour into these valleys. Ten millions of emigrants will settle in this golden land in twenty years… This is the grandest enterprise under God!
George Francis Train
In mind’s special processes, a ten-mile run takes far longer than the 60 minutes reported by a grandfather clock. Such time, in fact, hardly exists at all in the real world; it is all out on the trail somewhere, and you only go back to it when you are out there.
John L. Parker Jr.
I didn’t want to say anything. I liked Star Wars when I was ten.
Gerard Way
Maybe if you and ten of your friends could pool your savings and borrow some money and actually buy some obscure station in Sonoma, and then take some chances and have some fun.
Robert McChesney
Walking around with less than ten thousand dollars is completely unacceptable. It’s a necessity of life. It gives you freedom. The most important thing in life is a sense of possibility, and you simply can’t have it with less than ten thousand dollars in your pocket.
Rocco Landesman
Cars are like rolling diaries, metal and plastic and paint tableaux of the last ten years of their drivers’ lives … every dent, every drooping slice of chrome, has a story behind it.
Jim Atkinson
One of the first things they teach you in Driver’s Ed is where to put your hands on the steering wheel. They tell you put ’em at ten o’clock and two o’ clock. Never mind that . I put mine at 9:45 and 2:17. Gives me an extra half hour to get where I’m goin’.
George Carlin
Another thing I recall was falling in love with Shirley Temple when I was nine or ten.
Clint Walker
In the case Stone v. Graham, the Supreme Court ruled that – under ‘separation of church and state’ – it was unconstitutional for a student in school to even see a copy of the Ten Commandments.
David Barton
I’ve been in New York for 15 months. Winning two stars in the Zagat number one best newcomer within ten months of opening in New York has taught me a big lesson.
Gordon Ramsay
Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch the rain You are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today And then one day you find, ten years has got behind you No one told you where to run, you missed the starting gun.
David Gilmour
If Moses had been paid newspaper rates for the Ten Commandments, he might have written the Two Thousand Commandments.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed, Mr. President, but I do say not more than ten to twenty million dead depending upon the breaks.
Stanley Kubrick
If you’re only ten feet above, then you’re better than when you’re on the ground.
Robert Greene
Learning, like traveling and all other methods of improvement, as it finishes good sense, so it makes a silly man ten thousand times more insufferable by supplying variety of matter to his impertinence, and giving him an opportunity of abounding in absurdities.
Joseph Addison
Nobody’s sex life is such that every experience is a ten. You may have to be satisfied with regular eights or sixes and even an occasional three.
Kevin Leman
There isn’t a dearth of it, but I will confess that it’s harder for me to find songs on which I’m willing to invest anything from ten to fifteen hours writing an arrangement than it was in times past.
Mel Torme
I’m the kind of person to wait until I’ve gained ten pounds to start exercising.
Yasmine Bleeth
Because people have read those things in the newspapers, they think it is true. Ten years ago all these things I have just mentioned would have upset me.
Ruud van Nistelrooy
I’m proud of my family, very proud – I have ten grandchildren, four children, and one wife.
Dan Shechtman
If your plan is for one year plant rice. If your plan is for ten years plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years educate children.
I was born fat and have always been, which was just fine and even healthy and cute until I turned ten or so. Puberty hit like a hurricane and brought a new set of rules. All of a sudden it was my fault I was chubby.
Beth Ditto
A contest was held in 1994 to rename the Los Angeles Convention and Exhibition Center after an extensive renovation and expansion. The winning name, chosen from over ten thousand entries, was the Los Angeles Convention Center.
James Frey
Ten minutes in a video store should convince any impartial observer that we live in a police state of consciousness, far more pervasive than the Nazis.
Hakim Bey
I love doing Pilates and dance. It’s fun to mix things up and change your program every ten days.
Lily Aldridge
It’s true that I have very little idea what I shall be writing next, but at the same time I have a powerful premonition of everything that lies ahead of me, even ten years ahead.
J. G. Ballard
I’ve been working my way to doing my first feature film for about ten years. So I went through the commercials route and some people come from a theatrical background and some people come from a writing background, but I directed commercials
Duncan Jones
For one crime which is expiated in prison ten thousand are committed thoughtlessly by those who condemn.
Henry Miller
Hypersegregated inner-city schools – in which one finds no more than five or ten white children, at the very most, within a student population of as many as 3,000 – are the norm, not the exception, in most northern urban areas today.
Jonathan Kozol
I’m not saying that all American men are this way, but nine out of ten are breast-fixated, wham-bam-thank-you-rna’am cretins who just don’t give a damn about anyone’s gratification but their own.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
In the hurdles you have ten opportunities to improve; that’s what’s so cool about it.
Ron Bramlett
The Ting Tings have been a huge hit in my family. I have two young daughters, and both of them love that record, so I pretty much have to listen to that ten times a day.
Adam Schlesinger
Journalism consists in buying white paper at two cents a pound and selling it at ten cents a pound.
Charles A. Dana
I figure that that has a ten year cycle. At the end of that ten years, I began to get worried that I would run into what is known as the writer’s block, the feeling of not being able to do these things.
A. E. van Vogt
I believe that the physical effect, the physical set, whenever you can, is ten times better than the digital effect.
Guillermo del Toro
Ten minutes? That’s the women. It’s not for the men; not for the real game, mate.
Lleyton Hewitt
One has to completely humiliate oneself to be what the Beatles were . . . . It happened bit by bit, until . . . you’re doing exactly what you don’t want to do with people you can’t stand — the people you hated when you were ten.
John Lennon
I’m getting very sorry for the Devil and his disciples such as the good Le Chiffre. The devil has a rotten time and I always like to be on the side of the underdog. We don’t give the poor chap a chance…the Devil had no prophets to write his Ten Commandments and no team of authors to write his biography.
Ian Fleming
One thing I really want to do is – I spent ten years in New York doing theater before I moved to L.A. to do TV and film. I’d really like to go to back New York and do some theater.
Rainn Wilson
The fact that, in the United States, there are people serving ten-year prison terms for growing marijuana plants in their backyards while Wall Street racketeers, who have defrauded millions of people and destroyed the global economy, walk free is a kind of bizarre hypocrisy that boggles my mind.
Mark Haskell Smith
When I do research, I have done – 90 percent of my time is the research, the other ten percent is the writing. So I don’t have to face a blank piece of paper. I can look at this as a quote that I have from somewhere.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Of course, my father was a soccer player. He used to play very good. Then, when I was young, eight or nine years old, ten years old, I just want to be like my father.
When I was ten, I wrote an essay on what I would be when I grew up and said I would be a professional soccer player and a comedian in off season.
Will Ferrell
I have found that you have only to take that one step toward the gods, and they will then take ten steps toward you. That step, the heroic first step of the journey, is out of, or over the edge of, your boundaries, and it often must be taken before you know that you will.
Joseph Campbell
It was the usual sort of academic battle: footnotes at ten paces, bolstered by snide articles in academic journals and lots of sniping about methodology, a thrust and parry of source and countersource. My sources had to be better.
Lauren Willig
I’m all for getting together with men and women in small groups around Scripture and letting it just wash over us, but for me, I’ve been meeting with the same ten guys for like 15 years now, but we don’t have a Bible study every Friday, we have a Bible doing.
Bob Goff
I wrote when I was a young teen, but I didn’t put an eye on the available markets until I was seventeen. The next ten years felt like a self-centered experiment in personal abuse.
Robert Reed
Every fairy child may keep Two strong ponies and ten sheep; All have houses, each his own, Built of brick or granite stone; They live on cherries, they run wild I’d love to be a Fairy’s child.
Robert Graves
The cool parts – the parts that have won Dubai its reputation as ‘the Vegas of the Middle East’ or ‘the Venice of the Middle East’ or ‘the Disney World of the Middle East, if Disney World were the size of San Francisco and out in a desert’ – have been built in the last ten years.
George Saunders
I think it’s very important that whatever you’re trying to make or sell, or teach has to be basically good. A bad product and you know what? You won’t be here in ten years.
Martha Stewart
Sometime in the last ten years the best brains of the Occident discovered to their amazement that we live in an Environment. This discovery has been forced on us by the realization that we are approaching the limits of something.
Gary Snyder
I was just thrilled to get the gig to begin with. Ten years later to still have it is not only thrilling but also somewhat of a puzzlement.
Al Roker
My dad read the Bible ten times, and I want to do it in my lifetime. But it’s definitely tough getting through.
Pamela Anderson
There’s a certain cruelty to being on a big screen as your eyelids start to sag and your hair falls out and turns gray that you either have to be able to handle or not. What you can’t do is try to force yourself into roles that you could have played or would have played ten years earlier.
George Clooney
A friend of mine, the most innocuous dreamer who ever lived, once set a forest on fire to see, as he said, if it would catch as easily as people said. The first ten times the experiment was a failure; but on the eleventh it succeeded all too well.
Charles Baudelaire
Are your kids learning the right lessons about 9/11? Ten years after Osama bin Laden’s henchmen murdered thousands of innocents on American soil, too many children have been spoon-fed the thin gruel of progressive political correctness over the stiff antidote of truth.
Michelle Malkin
I regard irreligious people as pioneers. If there had been no priesthood the world would have advanced ten thousand times better than it has now.
Anandi Gopal Joshi
I like the evening in India, the one magic moment when the sun balances on the rim of the world, and the hush descends, and ten thousand civil servants drift homeward on a river of bicycles, brooding on the Lord Krishna and the cost of living.
James Cameron
A Wolf eats sheep but now and then; Ten thousands are devour’d by men. An open foe may prove a curse, but a pretend friend is worse.
John Gay
In one survey, respondents listed Princeton as one of the country’s top ten law schools. The problem? Princeton doesn’t have a law school
Alexandra Robbins
I’ve heard that while the show was on there were no reported crimes, or very few. When The Beatles were on Ed Sullivan, even the criminals had a rest for ten minutes.
George Harrison
Perhaps these Ten Commandments cases will be the turning point in the legal war against religion.
Cliff Stearns
If it costs ten years, and ten to recover the general prosperity, the destruction of the South is worth so much.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I remember being in a comic shop with my son, with my ten year-old son and he put his hand over my eyes. He was embarrassed about me seeing the comics at Forbidden Planet.
Francoise Mouly
It’s very difficult for a black man to get out of South-Central Los Angeles, and get out civilized….The only men I know who have escaped, all began reading Robert Heinlein at age ten.
Larry Niven
I wrote a great deal during the next ten [early] years,but very little of any importance; there are not more than four or five papers which I can still remember with some satisfaction.
G. H. Hardy
Well I think in all the thirty years I’ve been doing this now and being gone from home and all that stuff it’s really, it’s not about what I’ve achieved and if I’ve become a better player, or played better ten years ago than I do today.
Vince Gill
Pride is as loud a beggar as want, and a great deal more saucy. When you have bought one fine thing, you must buy ten more, that your appearance may be all of a piece; but it is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow it.
Benjamin Franklin
A manager should stay as far away as possible from his players. I don’t know if I said ten words to Frank Robinson while he played for me.
Earl Weaver
I wrote about a bird that cleaned a crocodile’s teeth. The story was so good that my teacher could not believe that a ten-year-old could write that well. I was even punished because my teacher thought I’d lied about writing it! I had always loved to write, but it was then that I realized that I had a talent for it.
Brian Jacques
Last night I dreamt I ate a ten pound marshmallow. When I woke up the pillow was gone.
Tommy Cooper
Problems are like toilet paper. You pull on one and ten more come.
Woody Allen
There’s no “magic secret”; writing is like everything else; ten percent inspiration or talent, and ninety percent hard work. Persistence; keeping at it till you get there. As Agnes de Mille said, it means working every day—bored, tired, weary, or with a fever of a hundred and two.
Marion Zimmer Bradley
Three score and, and ten has always been something that I never thought I’d make. So when I made it, I wanted to celebrate it and I did.
Lindsay Fox
A good solution applied with vigor now is better than a perfect solution applied ten minutes later.
George S. Patton
Most speakers speak ten minutes too long.
James Humes
Ten years before Matrix, ten years before Crouching Tiger – I wanted to do a Hong Kong action movie.
Robert Mark Kamen
There are times when one cannot accept facts for fear of shattering one’s being. As I listened to Ian’s news, all of Digit’s life, since my first meeting with him as a playful little ball of black fluff ten years earlier, passed through my mind. From that moment on, I came to live within an insulated part of myself.
Dian Fossey
I’ve seen attack ships on fire on the shoulder of Orion, I’ve seen moon beams glisten at the Ten hauser gate, all those memories, lost like tears in the rain.
Rutger Hauer
Ten minutes praying is better than a year’s murmuring.
Charles Spurgeon
Roses are red, violets are blue, they got ten, we only got two.
Gerry Cheevers
About ten years ago, I knew three chords on the guitar. Now, in 1982, I know three chords on the guitar.
Freddie Mercury
When I was a boy, the Sioux owned the world. The sun rose and set on their land; they sent ten thousand men to battle. Where are the warriors today? Who slew them? Where are our lands? Who owns them?
Sitting Bull
I generally find that comparison is the fast track to unhappiness. No one ever compares themselves to someone else and comes out even. Nine times out of ten, we compare ourselves to people who are somehow better than us and end up feeling more inadequate.
Jack Canfield
Be patient? That’s all you’ve got for me?” Steve complained ten minutes later. Kylie glanced up at Perry, circling them as they sat behind the office, and then frowned at Steve. “I don’t know why everyone thinks I’m the love guru.
C.C. Hunter
The second stage set in ten or fifteen days after the bombing. Its first symptom was falling hair. Diarrhea and fever, which in some cases went as high as 106, came next.
John Hersey
n case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died – an entire town destroyed.
Barack Obama
I wanted to be on ‘Saturday Night Live’ since I was ten.
Olivia Wilde
Perhaps we’ll realize that each of us has not one vote but ten thousand or a million.
David R. Brower
I’ve been writing a lot, I’ve a few projects I’m trying to finance, I do some acting, I do some directing… Apart from that, if I could get lower than a 10 handicap on my golf game, I’d be thrilled.
Paul Michael Glaser
Ten thousand pounds is the legal value of a negligently taken life, of a child or a parent. A cold and somewhat mean-spirited calculation: you would do better if you slipped on a paving-stone and broke a front tooth.
Nina Bawden
I meet people at book signings. My record now, for signing, is ten and a half hours in one sitting.
David Sedaris
One, two, three four five,
All is well I am alive,
Six,seven,eight nine ten,
All is well, no whining then!
Eugene Sue
We only went to the moon for military reasons. The space enthusiasts of the day kept saying, “Oh, we’re on the moon; we should be on Mars in ten years.” That’s if it was driven by exploration, but it’s never been driven by exploration.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Here’s the thing: life is now. It’s not ten pounds from now, it’s not twenty pounds from now, it’s not a million dollars from now. It’s right now. And you just have to take a chance.
Jillian Michaels
Resolve to pay any price or make any sacrifice to get into the top ten percent of your field. That payoff is incredible!
Brian Tracy
It was my fear of failure that first kept me from attempting the master work. Now, I’m beginning what I could have started ten years ago. But I’m happy at least that I didn’t wait twenty years.
Paulo Coelho
I keep saying the sexy job in the next ten years will be statisticians. People think I’m joking, but who would’ve guessed that computer engineers would’ve been the sexy job of the 1990s?
Hal Varian
My soul is of more value than ten thousand worlds.
John Flavel
Now at 47, 48 I am expected to do ten times better work that I did when I was 24.
Salman Khan
They took a survey: Why do men get up in the middle of the night? Ten percent get up to go to the bathroom and 90 percent get up to go home.
Rodney Dangerfield
The minute a thing is long and complicated, it confuses. Whoever wrote the Ten Commandments made ’em short. They may not always be kept, but they are understood.
Will Rogers
In the struggle for existence, it is only on those who hang on for ten minutes after all is hopeless, that hope begins to dawn.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
If there’s one thing for which I admire you, it’s your original discovery of the Ten Commandments.
Thomas Reed
Tel-Aviv airport is still the only airport in the world where each passenger is met by ten relatives.
George Mikes
The majority of the Big Ten towns are college towns. The colleges are kind of what run the towns.
Steve Alford
I didn’t run into racism until we moved to Nassau when I was ten and a half, but it was vastly different from the kind of horrendous oppression that black people in Miami were under when I moved there at 15. I found Florida an antihuman place.
Sidney Poitier
A safe rule where Jewish propaganda is concerned is to multiply or divide their figures by ten, at least, before accepting them as the basis for discussion.
Arnold Leese
I suppose that every time there is difficulty. I remember about Space Mountain: It took us ten years before we found the technology that would allow such a ride. And during these ten years, I had a model that I kept, waiting for the technology we needed.
John Hench
Material advancement has its share in moral and intellectual progress. Becky Sharp’s acute remark that it is not difficult to be virtuous on ten thousand a year has its applications to nations; and it is futile to expect a hungry and squalid population to be anything but violent and gross.
Thomas Huxley
To me marriage is for five or ten years
I started taking music lessons and singing when I was about ten.
Alex Winston
Let those who think that the Church pays too much attention to Mary give heed to the fact that Our Blessed Lord Himself gave ten times as much of His life to her as He gave to His Apostles.
Fulton J. Sheen
If I live for another ten years I shall probably have written all that I want to write.
Laurence Housman
What was a slap for ten pages of escapism, ten pages far from everything that made him unhappy, ten pages of real life instead of the monotony that other people called the real world?
Cornelia Funke
Give me a chance, says Stupid, and I will show you. Ten to one he has had his chance already, and neglected it.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton
It is the rule in war, if ten times the enemy’s strength, surround them; if five times, attack them; if double, be able to divide them; if equal, engage them; if fewer, defend against them; if weaker, be able to avoid them.
Sun Tzu
In New York City, one suicide in ten is attributed to a lack of storage space.
Judith Stone
I’m usually woken by a vibration on my up-band. It’s the gradual vibration for about ten seconds, and then the chimes of my blue light. It’s just a way to wake gently. It all gently puts me into awake-mode. I play music off of my Sonos playlist. ‘The Rachmaninoff Concerto 3 in D-minor’, 1st movement.
Amy Tan
I quit drinking, and I figure if I go to ten Yankee games this year without drinking I’ll save $32,000.
Artie Lange
So what if Brian made me feel like fireworks were going off inside me. He could also make me feel like a big fat clod of heartsick dirt. It was like he could take any emotion I had and make it ten times stronger. Which is great when it’s happiness but pretty darn awful if it’s anything sad.
Catherine Gilbert Murdock
When I look at ‘Napoleon Dynamite’s style I’m reminded of how I spoke when I was an eight-year-old boy. It was just like capturing the essence of, ‘Duh!’ It was just like the stuff that I would say when I was like eight, nine, ten years old.
Jason Reitman
I’m pretty much right on schedule. Start off slow, finish up strong. I don’t know why everyone panics. I’ve been doing this for ten years now. Why change?
Albert Belle
If god had meant us to use the metric system he would have given us ten finger and ten toes.
Judith Stone
Splitting the atom is like trying to shoot a gnat in the Albert Hall at night and using ten million rounds of ammunition on the off chance of getting it. That should convince you that the atom will always be a sink of energy and never a reservoir of energy.
Ernest Rutherford
It’s okay if it takes two or three years for something really good to come along, but I don’t want to wait ten years for something great to come along.
Geena Davis
I saw my husband in his cell for ten minutes. During the interview the cell was packed with officers and a sergeant, who kept a watch in his hand and closed the interview by saying, ‘Your ten minutes is now up.’
Grace Gifford
As a ten-year-old boy, the Thief of Eddis could stop a grown man in his tracks with a single look. Where had that look gone?
Megan Whalen Turner
The Director of the Laboratory, George Reynolds, was most supportive of my efforts to work independently. There followed for ten years a glorious time for research.
James Cronin
When the ‘weaker’ of the two brains (right and left) is stimulated and encouraged to work in cooperation with the stronger side, the end result is a great increase in overall ability and … often five to ten times more effectiveness.
Robert E. Ornstein
In ten phrases, the ten commandments express the essential of life. And these three words–liberty, equality, and fraternity–do just as much. Millions of people have died for those ideals.
Krzysztof Kieslowski
My first exploration through art was really through music – I’ve trained classically with piano for about ten years.
Condola Rashad
People accuse me of going overboard preparing for my first ten million years in eternity; in my opinion, people go overboard in worrying about their last ten on earth.
Francis Chan
A public relations firm said that rock star David Lee Roth owes them over $110,000. The strange thing is that it’s the first time that David Lee Roth has had any publicity in ten years.
Conan O’Brien
We go from birth to death. Three out of ten follow life. Three out of ten follow death. People who rush from birth to death are also three out of ten. Why is that so? Because they want to make too much of life.
A singer can quit once he or she has made ten great songs; a director can finish once he or she has made five amazing films; a writer just needs to write three great books.
Alber Elbaz
I value science–none can prize it more,
It gives ten thousand motives to adore:
Be it religious, as it ought to be,
The heart it humbles, and it bows the knee.
Abraham Coles
Laughter is good for you. Nine out of ten stand-up comedians recommend laughter in the face of intense stupidity.
Jim Butcher
What a childhood I had – I was ten years old when I
found out Alpo was dog food.
Rodney Dangerfield
A page of Addison or of Irving will teach more of style than a whole manual of rules, whilst a story of Poe’s will impress upon the mind a more vivid notion of powerful and correct description and narration than will ten dry chapters of a bulky textbook.
H. P. Lovecraft
The belief that you have a great idea is not worth cuckoo spit. Ideas are ten a penny while the ability to execute counts for a great deal more.
Felix Dennis
At about the age of ten, during a late summer visit to Sears to buy school clothes, I became aware of the concept of candy by the pound.
Steve Almond
Startup CEOs should not play the odds. When you are building a company, you must believe there is an answer and you cannot pay attention to your odds of finding it. You just have to find it. It matters not whether your chances are nine in ten or one in a thousand; your task is the same.
Ben Horowitz
Ninety percent of metabolic oxygen comes from breathing. Ten percent comes from food.
Gabriel Cousens
My reaction to porno films is as follows: After the first ten minutes, I want to go home and screw. After the first twenty minutes, I never want to screw again as long as I live.
Erica Jong
In college, my wife did a study abroad in Nairobi, and I did the exact same program in Cape Town. For me, the experience of being in that other culture really set up a longing. When I’m traveling, things seem really sharp. You learn things ten times faster.
Rosecrans Baldwin
Sometimes one day in a difference place gives you more than ten years of a life at home.
Anatole France
I’ve been collecting articles on extremophile bacteria for at least the last ten years. I find them fascinating, whether they live in boiling pools at Yellowstone, around thermal vents at the floors of the oceans, or on Mars, where NASA has been searching for them as the first evidence of life beyond Earth.
Will Hobbs
The sins we do, people behold with optics,
Which shew them ten times more than common vices,
And often multiply them.
John William Fletcher
People reside within qi and qi resides within people. From heaven and earth down to the ten thousand things, each one requires qi to live.
Ge Hong
On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12. I have also recently returned from New York, and while I was there, I saw Daniel singing and dancing (brilliantly) on Broadway. A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes.
Alan Rickman
The legendary Buddhist flower udumbara is believed to blossom once every three millennia! What about the Flower of Peace? In every ten million years?
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Dedication and time management are two of the biggest things. I hate being late for anything. If anything, I prefer to be ten minutes early rather than thirty seconds late. I’m also very dedicated and I want to do my best in everything I do. I believe swimming has helped transfer that into my life as well.
Liam Tancock
Because you have no memory for things that happened ten or twenty years ago, you’re still mouthing the same nonsense as two thousand years ago. Worse, you cling with might and main to such absurdities as ‘race,’ ‘class,’ ‘nation,’ and the obligation to observe a religion and repress your love.
Wilhelm Reich
I think that, by comparison with $2,000 bottles of grand cru Burgundies, first-rate barolos, which sell for under $100, are undervalued ten-fold.
Joe Bastianich
Ten years into it, I can finally go, ‘Oh, I just want to make a record that’s fun to make and I don’t have to prove that I deserve to be here.’
Michelle Branch
When I was about ten my favourite article in the huge and mouldering Encyclopedia Britannica we owned (the ninth edition) was the one on Lycanthropy. (Yes, I had a favourite 1890s Britannica article when I was ten. I am now aware this is not entirely usual.)
Neil Gaiman
AIG would be doing fine today. It was one of the ten largest companies in the United States in terms of market value, over 200 billion, the most respected insurer and everything in the world.
Warren Buffett
Those who would send out thousands of questionnaires asking the unconverted what they would desire most in a worship service should realize that ten thousand unanimous opinions of carnal men do not carry the authority of one jot or tittle of God’s Word.
Paul Washer
after several months of probation work, standing on my feet some ten to twelve hours a day, I decided that as a nurse I was a pretty good entertainer.
Kate Smith
Scientology is the science of knowing how to know answers. It is a wisdom in the tradition of ten thousand years of search in Asia and Western civilization. It is the Science of Human Affairs which treats the livingness and beingness of Man and demonstrates to him a pathway to greater freedom.
L. Ron Hubbard
Ten strong horses could not pull an empty baby carriage if they worked independently of each other.
John Wooden
If you made me the national commissioner of football, I’d tell you one thing that I would mandate. The second Saturday in September, we’re going to have conference day. Everybody from the SEC plays a Big 12 team. Everybody from the Big Ten is going to play the ACC. Everybody from the Big East is going to play the Pac-10.
Lou Holtz
Nine times out of ten it’s a minor shift in your focus and your attitude that makes the difference.
Brenda Strong
Ten percent of the American population thinks that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Those are the people that have not learned the skill of filtering information from the vast barrage of inaccurate information that we’re all faced with everyday. I think that’s a very 21st century skill.
Michael Azerrad
I worked with him for years. I still think Kanye [West] is one of the most important people in music in the last ten years.
Ten comics can say the same joke, and I’m the one who gets called a thief.
Carlos Mencia
Genius is the capacity to see ten things where the ordinary man sees one, and the man of talent sees two or three, plus the ability to register that multiple perception in the material of his art.
Ezra Pound
Every month I look through some ten thousand games, so not as to miss any new ideas and trends.
Vladimir Kramnik
How do you tell somebody how to find what they’re looking for when ten years ago you came from the same place, and have yet to find it yourself?
Tony Earley
I started boxing when I was eight. I enjoyed when I could hit someone and they couldn’t hit me back. It was like a game for me. The feeling of knocking someone out. My first knockout victory was when I was ten. He went down and his nose started to bleed, so they stopped it.
Emanuel Steward
Ten builders rear an arch, each in turn lifting it higher; but it is the tenth man, who drops in the keystone, who hears our huzzas.
George Iles
I mean, I think it’s hard enough to find somebody you can stand for more than ten minutes, so, like, you shouldn’t narrow your options.
Ani DiFranco
In my house you have to talk to cats because, being ten of them, there are a lot of important things you have to say to them-like ‘Get off’ and ‘Shut up’ and things like that.
Beryl Reid
As far as feeling like I need to prove myself or this or that, I don’t feel that way anymore. I’ve been in this business for ten years, so I’m kind of past all that. I was there where, as a female, you always feel like you have to prove yourself; you have to outwork them. But all I worry about now is being prepared.
Molly Qerim
With the rise of the Internet, fashion did become part of the global entertainment industry in the last ten years, and will follow the digital evolution of the music or film industry.
Hedi Slimane
I wanted to be a teacher. I love children, so I wanted to deal with children. Then I wanted to be a veterinarian. But by the age of ten or eleven, when I opened my mouth and said, ‘Oh, God, what’s this?’ I kind of knew teaching and being a veterinarian were gonna have to wait.
Whitney Houston
Every day kill just one, rather than today five, tomorrow ten . . . that is enough for you. Then your nerves are calm and you can sleep good, you have your drink in the evening and the next morning you are fit again.
Erich Hartmann
It’s very healthy for a young girl to be deterred from promiscuity by fear of contracting a painful, incurable disease, or cervical cancer, or sterility, or the likelihood of giving birth to a dead, blind or brain-damaged baby (even ten years later when she may be happily married).
Phyllis Schlafly
Whoever, in middle age, attempts to realize the wishes and hopes of his early youth, invariably deceives himself. Each ten years of a man’s life has its own fortunes, its own hopes, its own desires.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Photography and photographers have an inevitable development. They progress more or less by steps. Every five or ten years some new point of view is developed and young people are inclined to follow it.
Ansel Adams
My parents were married for sixty-five years, and I was married for about ten minutes, my first year at Yale Drama School. Something, somehow, didn’t get passed on to my generation.
Lewis Black
Democrats lead in all the polls by at least ten points, except one.. Fox News. That is with a margin of error of plus or minus the facts.
Stephen Colbert
If you have someone falling out of the boat, you’d have to drag the boat up the river and film the same scene ten times, every time, dragging the boat exactly where it was up the river.
Bonnie Jo Campbell
It’s been amazing to watch, because for Thor, which was always a mid-selling book, to be in the top ten for every single issue since the reboot is just a great compliment.
J. Michael Straczynski
Stamford Bridge holds 42,000. So ten per cent of that would be about 4.1 thousand
Mike Parry
You should be happy to spend ten to twelve hours a day wherever you work.
Miguel McKelvey
In this room I have picked which gun was unloaded out of ten options. And then they pulled the trigger on me. I have picked stocks that went on to skyrocket. I have picked which pencil I would shove into Ms. Robertson’s ear until she kicked me out for thinking about it.
Kiersten White
George had taken off all ten of his fingers and tied them into a bundle with what appeared to be either his own small intestines, or a guitar string; as I walked into the room, he lovingly placed the bundle on his head.
Alan Goldsher
If a person has ten habits out of which nine are good and one bad, that bad one will destroy the good ones.
The poor yield to the rich, the common people to the upper ten, the servants to their masters, the ignorant to the scholars; but there is nobody who does not imagine that he is really better than others.
John Calvin
By the time a man gets to be presidential material, he’s been bought ten times over.
Gore Vidal
There are some beings who reach a point where they no longer want to move through the ten thousand states of mind. There is something else. It is beyond subject and object. That is nirvana.
Frederick Lenz
Fears are a complete waste of your time. Nine times out of ten, whatever you’re afraid of is not dangerous or life threatening. In fact, it’s probably not even real.
Sean Stephenson
I’d like to make you laugh for about ten minutes though I’m gonna be on for an hour.
Richard Pryor
I always wanted and enjoyed sex, but I never put much importance on scoring or having an athletic sex life. I guess I define myself more by my career and my commitment to a relationship than by my ability to have a lot of chicks or achieve ten orgasms in an evening.
George Carlin
What better proof of love can there be than money? A ten-shilling note shows incontrovertibly just how mad about you a man is.
Quentin Crisp
Okay,” Kincaid said. “Anyone have any questions?” “Why do they sell hot dogs in packages of ten but hot dog buns in packages of eight?
Jim Butcher
People who are offended by the Ten Commandments have a deeper problem than the stone that it’s written on, I think.
Judy Martz
I was lying ten and had a thirty-five foot putt. I whispered over my shoulder: “How does this one break?” And my caddie said, “Who cares?”
Jack Lemmon
It’s very important in a restaurant to really do the right hiring because there’s no restaurant that you have one cook and one chef and nobody else in the kitchen. Generally you have five, ten, 15 people with you. So that’s really important is to train them right, but first you have to hire the right people.
Wolfgang Puck
Sometimes I think that Darwin made a mistake and that in fact man is descended from the pig, because eight out of every ten members of the human race are swine, and as crooked as a hog’s tail.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
A battle goes on in the stock market and the tape is your telescope. You can depend upon it seven out of ten cases.
Edwin Lefevre
If you make believe that ten guys in pin-striped suits are back in a kindergarten class playing with building blocks, you’ll get a rough picture of what life in a corporation is like.
Lee Iacocca
I distrust the perpetually busy; always have. The frenetic ones spinning in tight little circles like poisoned rats. The slower ones, grinding away their fourscore and ten in righteousness and pain. They are the soul-eaters.
Mark Slouka
Grief makes one hour ten.
William Shakespeare
The great commander, who seemed by expression of his visage to be always on the look-out for something in the extremest distance, and to have no ocular knowledge of anything within ten miles, made no reply whatever.
Charles Dickens
Ten minutes after you lose that last game, you start working on next season.
Don Meyer
Michael Jordan on his worst day is ten times better than Kobe Bryant on his best day.
Reggie Miller
When I was nine, ten, I was super young, but I installed a program on my computer so I could start producing music.
Martin Garrix
Remember that no piece of honestly conducted research is ever wasted, even if it seems so at the time. Put it away in a drawer, and ten, twenty or thirty years down the road, it will come back and help you in ways you never anticipated.
Anthony James Leggett
You learn more from ten days of agony than from ten years of content.
Sally Jessy Raphael
Osama bin Laden has ten look-alikes to fool us Americans. Ten look-alikes, and he’s married to five of them.
David Letterman
What is so inspiring about [Louis] Brandeis’s writing is he saw it as a tool for democratic education. He would say things like the opinion is now convincing, now can we make it more instructive, after he’d gone through ten drafts.
Jeffrey Rosen
Fear of danger is ten thousand times more terrifying than danger itself.
Daniel Defoe
Either you will do now what it takes or ten years from now you wish that you had.
Marshall Sylver
I cannot find it in me to fear a man who took ten years a learning of his alphabet.
Elizabeth I
Nine times out of ten, talking is a way of avoiding doing things.
Patricia C. Wrede
There is no waiting and no delayed gratification because yoga is both the means and the result, and the seed of all that is possible is present at the very beginning. This experience of stillness is possible in the first ten minutes of your first yoga class. It is possible in this very breath.
Donna Farhi
There’s nothing more vulnerable than just standing in front of a thousand people, or ten thousand people, and doing your best to entertain them, touch them in some way.
Jason Mraz
Not far from the meeting’s venue, at one of the famed Observatory Club tea meetings, Fred once started a talk by saying, ‘Oh, Ooh, basically a star is a pretty simple thing.’ And from the back of the room was heard the voice of R. O. Redman, saying, ‘Well, Fred, you’d look pretty simple too, from ten parsecs!
Fred Hoyle
Sex may be a little more factual than love. You know whether it’s good or bad. You know whether you liked it or not. You’re not going to change your mind about it ten years later.
Iggy Pop
The one thing I remember about Christmas was that my father used to take me out in a boat about ten miles offshore on Christmas Day, and I used to have to swim back. Extraordinary. It was a ritual. Mind you, that wasn’t the hard part. The difficult bit was getting out of the sack.
John Cleese
You’ve changed,” he said. “You’re-uh-” “Yes?” “Taller.” “I hope so. I was ten the last time you saw me.” “And your hair’s really dark now-and short,” he added.
Elizabeth Chandler
I’d play the same character for ten years if the words and the moments that I’m playing are authentic.
David Walton
Always had a passion for acting since I could remember, but I started when I was ten going for short film and commercial auditions in Los Angeles with my mom’s help!
Megan Lee
You must always work not just within but below your means. If you can handle three elements, handle only two. If you can handle ten, then handle only five. In that way the ones you do handle, you handle with more ease, more mastery, and you create a feeling of strength in reserve.
Pablo Picasso
I went to a 7-11 and asked for a 2×4 and a box of 3×5’s. The clerk said, “ten-four.”
Steven Wright
There’s always a high school jerk, isn’t there? But I didn’t date much in high school, because I went to an all-girls’ private school for ten years.
Emmanuelle Vaugier
I’ve traveled all over the country for years speaking in churches, teaching the Ten Commandments. It’s amazing if 2 percent of any congregation knows the Ten Commandments.
Randall Terry
Time was a film run backward. Suns fled and ten million moons fled after them.
Ray Bradbury
Drink a bottle of French water and then step into the shower for ten minutes and you’ve just received the exposure equivalent of drinking a half gallon of tap water. We enjoy the most intimate of relationships with our public drinking water, whether we want to or not.
Sandra Steingraber
As soon as I landed at Malta I found that though I could go to Tunis I could not go away without being quarantined for ten days and if I remained in Malta I must stay a week.
Richard Harding Davis
If Im honest, the reason I got into acting is not the reason Im still doing it, and if Im still doing it in ten years time, Im sure Ill find something else.
Harry Lloyd
One picture in ten thousand, perhaps, ought to live in the applause of mankind, from generation to generation until the colors fade and blacken out of sight or the canvas rot entirely away.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Ten minutes before you go onstage and you begin singing that torchy blues song, you may just be drinking a glass of water and brushing your teeth and doing some deep breathing.
Ronee Blakley
The great thing about theater is that when it’s great, you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. But if you go see ten shows, you’ll only get five – if you’re lucky – that’ll give you that experience. But the rest, at the very least, will be interesting.
Cate Blanchett
We used to wrestle every night, 385 times a year. For ten years. 365 days. Never had any holidays off, ever. Holidays were always two-day venues. Two event venues. Afternoon and night.
Ric Flair
I’ve had this reoccurring dream for the last ten to fifteen years.
Tommy Tune
I probably haven’t even seen ten of the films I’ve done. I don’t get a joy out of it, and I don’t go to the movies.
Robert Sean Leonard
I envisage the prinicles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community.
Mikhail Gorbachev
On a scale of one to ten, how punk am I? Apple. I don’t use your scale.
Eugene Mirman
If someone hacks your password, you can change it – as many times as you want. You can’t change your fingerprints. You have only ten of them. And you leave them on everything you touch; they are definitely not a secret.
Al Franken
If Moses had gone to Harvard Law School and spent three years working on the Hill, he would have written the Ten Commandments with three exceptions and a saving clause.
Charles Morgan
I remember when Ronald Reagan was president he said ‘if the American people obeyed the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule we wouldn’t have any problems.’ The first time I heard him say it I thought, ‘That’s too simplistic.’ There are complicated problems back there. But you analyze it, he’s right.
Bill Bright
An enlightened person lives in the world, passes through the ten thousand states of mind, but they are not bound by them. They can go beyond perception.
Frederick Lenz
Ten long trips around the sun since I last saw that smile, but only joy and thankfulness that on a tiny world in the vastness, for a couple of moments in the immensity of time, we were one.
Ann Druyan
Mac [Barnett ] and I have been friends for more than ten years. We met working at an educational nonprofit. And we have been pranking each other the whole time. It’s our own version of a prank war. We thought we would channel some of that energy into writing a book.
Jory John
The only thing that’s really riled me up in the last ten years has been the White Stripes. That’s the one band that’s gotten me competitive, and that’s good.
Courtney Love
The important thing is the 80/20 rule: 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. This means that if you’re doing ten tasks, two are going to be vastly more important than others.
Brian Tracy
You have ten minutes. Tops. (Carlos) I have been knocked overboard, shot at, kidnapped, handcuffed, terrified, and held prisoner. I will not be told how long to take in the loo. (Gabrielle)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
How you feel right now is about equally genetic and circumstantial, but how you will feel
on average over the next ten years is fully 80 percent because of your genes.
Dean Hamer
Shoe Suede Blues is ten years old this year. The Band consists of four members.
Peter Tork
As an actor, you’ll have ten parts in 2015 – eight of them will go to the other actors above you and two of them you might be close to, and you try to make them as good as you can.
Matt Smith
I went to a Presbyterian college, you know, I was in… all the way, and so I remember doing my first sermon when I was 17, I was in high school. It wasn’t a full twenty-five minute sermon, but for like ten minutes I got up and they let me do that, and it was on faith.
Woody Harrelson
I’ve always wanted to work with Cameron Crowe. I’ve auditioned for him several times for various projects over the last ten years, and I’ve always admired the way he worked with me.
Scarlett Johansson
I met my wife and, for the next ten years, we did no films at all. She did the first movie and then I did several after. My first movie was written by Tennessee Williams and directed by Kazan and was called Baby Doll.
Eli Wallach
I favor candidates who are biblically oriented, who hold the views of the Ten Commandments.
Bill Bright
The average American worker gets something like 14 days of paid vacation. In my school, you’d use up ten of those taking care of your kids on teacher professional days, then tack on a couple more for kids getting sick.
Hanna Rosin
Prayer is like Thanksgiving dinner. It takes one hour to eat it and ten hours to prepare it.
Peter Kreeft
After ten years of toiling away in Hollywood, I realized that there’s no better place for new ideas than comics.
Brian K. Vaughan
He who creates three to five haiku poems during a lifetime is a haiku poet. He who attains to completes ten is a master.
Matsuo Basho
Over the years I attempted to make my style a bit more relaxed ’cause the initial style you couldn’t watch for more than ten minutes without wanting to kill me.
Jo Brand
Ten years from now I will tell you how I feel about umpires.
Carlos Zambrano
Every single person in the world could be a genius at something, if they practiced it daily for at least ten years (as confirmed by the research of Anders Ericsson and others).
Robin Sharma
What are you listening to?” “I picked up a DVD for Luke while I was out. Something with Mozart and sock puppets.” A grin rose to my lips. “At this stage I don’t think Luke can see more than ten inches beyond his face.” “That explains his lack of interest. I thought maybe he preferred Beethoven.
Lisa Kleypas
No one can write perfect English and keep it up through a stretch of ten chapters. It has never been done.
Mark Twain
In war the heroes always outnumber the soldiers ten to one.
H. L. Mencken
BASICS OF DIET AND HEALTH The basic principles of good diets are so simple that I can summarize them in just ten words: eat less, move more, eat lots of fruits and vegetables. For additional clarification, a five-word modifier helps: go easy on junk foods.
Marion Nestle
People will always want more immersive ways to express themselves. So if you go back ten years ago on the internet, most of what people shared and consumed was text. Now a lot of it is photos. I think, going forward, a lot of it is going to be videos, getting richer and richer.
Mark Zuckerberg
One often learns more from ten days of agony than ten years of contentment.
Merle Shain
Considering what Americans have been confronted with in the last ten years, domestically and internationally, it’s clear that we need emotional outlets; we have to have some peace from our problems
Pete Rozelle
Even then, our family was extraordinary, with ten kids.
Mink Stole
Over ten thousand people have signed a petition to recall Governor Schwarzenegger. I’m sorry, that is next year’s joke.
Craig Kilborn
Today, tomorrow,” she said. “A day is nothing. A day is just a match you strike after the ten thousand matches before it have gone out.
Adam Johnson
If you develop rules, never have more than ten.
Donald Rumsfeld
A deranged person is supposed to have the strength of ten men. I have the strength of one small boy… with polio.
Woody Allen
And then there was my mate who’d just been fitted with a brand new hearing aid. “It’s the best in the world”, he said. “What type is it?”, I asked and he said “ten past twelve”.
Billy Connolly
Hatebreed is a fantastic band. They’ve been around for ten years and they’re going really strong. But Hatebreed — when you compare them to Agnostic Front, we’re two completely different bands. There are a few similarities, but Hatebreed is a lot heavier.
Roger Miret
There’s like ten minutes when it’s like, ‘Okay, wait, who is this guy again?’ And then, you know, I just put on the calculator watch and the glasses, and just be all, you know, inappropriate. And then it just works out fine.
Rainn Wilson
At the moment, for example, maybe ten percent of money in the world is related to goods and services. Ninety percent of money is just moving around the world, chasing money. So, money has become the ruler. And we have become the servant.
Satish Kumar
Some people have a team of ten people – Waste of money, waste of time. I do it on my own when I’m in the ring.
Carl Froch
I was in the top ten percent of my law school class. I am a Doctor of Juris Prudence. I have an honorary Doctor of Laws. So, would somebody please tell me why I spent four mortal hours today conversing with a person named Dizzy Dean.
Branch Rickey
A good idea is about ten percent and implementation and hard work, and luck is 90 percent.
Guy Kawasaki
I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone.
Edmund Burke
It takes two years on the stage for an actor or an actress to learn how to speak correctly and to manage his voice properly, and it takes about ten years to master the subtle art of being able to hold one’s audience.
D. W. Griffith
Whatever happens in Washington, Wall Street, Hollywood or Silicon Vally in the next ten years, it will be irrelevant if our families don’t come together at a much higher level. Without a renaissance of family, no new candidate can rise to save us. No new legislation, policy or program will heal our land.
Oliver DeMille
I see nothing wrong in sterilizing a man who has already brought eight or ten children into the world. Especially if it helps those eight or ten children to live better.
Indira Gandhi
I would rather have one man with enthusiasm working with me than ten who are complacent.
Thomas A. Edison
[Barack] Obama has betrayed Israel, gutted the military, and apologized on ten world tours.
Marco Rubio
I smoke ten to fifteen cigars a day. At my age I have to hold on to something.
George Burns
I started ballet in my early 20s. I studied for about ten years. Ballet is probably the one of the hardest things I’ve done, almost like MMA. People don’t give it a lot of credit and think it’s easy but it’s very difficult. For an athlete, you use muscles you really don’t use and ballet is something I really respect.
Herschel Walker
If you have the door to your office closed, you get more work done today and tomorrow, and you are more productive than most. But ten years later somehow, you don’t quite know what problems are worth working on.
Richard Hamming
I don’t know where Hank Aaron will break (Babe) Ruth’s record but I can tell you one thing – ten years from the day he hits it three million people will say they were there.
Eddie Mathews
The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.
Maynard James Keenan
I wasn’t one of the ones voted most likely to succeed when I was at drama school, but I persevered and concentrated on the acting rather than going to the right parties and getting the right agent. Eventually, after ten years, it paid off.
Eddie Marsan
An overnight success is ten years in the making.
Tom Clancy
I’m only waiting for Lindsay Lohan’s fashion collection to come out. Ten years from now, there may be no real designers left.
Vera Wang
If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is no barking dog to be tethered on a ten-foot chain.
Adlai Stevenson I
If a man or woman is born ten years sooner or later, their whole aspect and performance shall be different.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In general don’t start a startup you’re not willing to work on for ten years.
Sam Altman
You may reasonably expect a man to walk a tightrope safely for ten minutes; it would be unreasonable to do so without accident for two hundred years.
Bertrand Russell
I wear jeans and a T-shirt sometimes. I just like clothes – since the first time I can remember, like age ten or eleven; I was just obsessed with music and clothes. Just like a lot of people in England from my generation.
Paul Weller
Could I get mansions covering ten thousand miles, I’d house all the poor scholars and make them beam with smiles
Du Fu
What if you have seen it before, ten thousand times over? An apple tree in full blossom is like a message, sent fresh from heaven to earth, of purity and beauty.
Henry Ward Beecher
It seems like songwriting for most songwriters is only one season in their life, a five or ten year period. For me, I don’t worry about it, but I know there might come a day when I can’t write anymore, or don’t have good song ideas or the fire to do it anymore.
Rodney Clawson
Being five-foot-ten at fourteen years old was a little bit scary.
Bonnie Jo Campbell
The danger of the Web is that you can go from idea to public announcement in under ten minutes.
Seth Godin
Studies of older Americans find that one of the best predictors of happiness is whether a person considers his or her life to have a purpose. Without a clearly defined purpose, seven in ten individuals feel unsettled about their lives; with a purpose, almost seven in ten feel satisfied!
Mark Lepper
Overall, our population is in the worst shape it’s ever been. Children are in terrible shape. We have absolutely unprecedented numbers of obese and overweight children – one in three now. A generation ago it was something like one in ten.
Neal Barnard
I do get very angry at things. My wife has to count to ten because if she gets annoyed at me being annoyed, then I get annoyed at her being annoyed at me being annoyed.
Simon Pegg
The amazing exhibition of oil which has characterized the last twenty years, and will probably characterize the next ten or twenty years, is nevertheless, not only geologically but historically, a temporary and vanishing phenomenon.
Peter Lesley
Be about ten times more magnanimous than you believe yourself capable of. Your life will be a hundred times better for it.
Cheryl Strayed
While our world is shaking and crumbling, we need to realize that one thing will never change, and that is God. He is the same today as he was ten million years ago, and will be the same ten million years from today.
Billy Graham
“I won’t apologize for my past. A man is supposed to have experience.” “From all indications, you’ve acquired enough for ten men”.
Lisa Kleypas
I did not plan to have such a career in the fashion world. All that I wanted, was to have ten kids and raise them!
Sonia Rykiel
The ending is really the most important part of the movie. If the first hour and 20 minutes is terrific and the last ten minutes stinks, everybody walks out of the theatre and says: ‘That was a lousy movie!’
Larry Cohen
A man’s wealth must be determined by the relation of his desires and expenditures to his income. If he feels rich on ten dollars, and has everything else he desires, he really is rich.
John D. Rockefeller
The interests of the employers and the employed are the same nine times out of ten-I will even say ninety-nine times out of ten.
George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon of Kedleston
In nine times out of ten, the slanderous tongue belongs to a disappointed person.
George Bancroft
Considering what Americans have been confronted with in the last ten years, domestically and internationally, it’s clear that we need emotional outlets; we have to have some peace from our problems.
Pete Rozelle
Being a decathlete is like having ten girlfriends. You have to love them all, and you can’t afford losing one.
Daley Thompson
Now let you and me buy wine today! Why say we have not the price? My horse spotted with five flowers, My fur-coat worth a thousand pieces of gold, These I will take out, and call my boy To barter them for sweet wine. And with you twain, let me forget The sorrow of ten thousand ages!
Li Bai
Who that has plodded on to middle age would take back upon his shoulders ten of the vanished years, with their mingled pleasures and pains? Who would return to the youth he is forever pretending to regret?
Agnes Repplier
I do the final fitting because the client wants me there. They’re not spoilt, they really understand that you’re very busy, but they just want you to say what you think – for just ten minutes. They really want to know your opinion because it really is a service at the end of the day, a luxury service.
Riccardo Tisci
She’s cute, I thought, but you don’t need to like a girl who treats you like you’re ten: You’ve already got a mom.
John Green
The Sugar Frosted Nutsack is fantastic. It’s volcanic and sexy and utterly unlike anything I’ve read before. It feels like the future in a dazzling way that has nothing to do with looking backward. It’s been a long wait for a new novel from Mark Leyner, but worth it. Ten out of ten from me.
Douglas Coupland
If you compromise in the first five, ten hires it might kill the company.
Sam Altman
Ten guards and the warden couldn’t have torn me out of those books. Months passed without even thinking about being imprisoned….I had never been so truly free in my life.
Malcolm X
If you do not worship God, you worship something, and nine times out of ten it will be yourself. You have a duty to worship God, not because He will be imperfect and unhappy if you do not, but because you will be imperfect and unhappy.
Fulton J. Sheen
I have many times essayed thoroughly to investigate the ten commandments, but at the very outset, “I am the Lord thy God,” I stuck fast; that very one word, I, put me to a non-plus. He that has but one word of God before him, and out of that word cannot make a sermon, can never be a preacher.
Martin Luther
Ten years ago in Nairobi we said that the participation of women in the decision-making and appraisal processes of the United Nations was essential if the organization was to effectively serve women’s interests.
Jenny Shipley
Like every artist that comes out, you want to make a mark; you want to be a household name and you want to be someone that people are going to look back in ten years/fifteen years’ time and go, ‘I love this guy Olly Murs. He was brilliant back in the day; he was someone I really, really liked.’
Olly Murs
We often hear of people breaking down from overwork, but in nine out of ten they are really suffering from worry or anxiety.
John Lubbock
Do you advocate the Ten Commandments as a guide to the good life? Then I can only presume that you don’t know the Ten Commandments.
Richard Dawkins
When men see how relevant the ten commandments are for economics, they should gain new respect for the importance of the laws of God for all of life, but especially for the life of dominion man, the man redeemed by grace through faith in the one true Dominion Man, Jesus Christ.
Gary North
I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won’t matter. If I’m wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won’t make a difference.
Abraham Lincoln
You’re on your own out there with ten mates.
Michael Owen
That was one of the bravest, stupidest things you’ve ever done,” he said into my hair. “You just scared ten years off my life.” I let out a little laugh, adrenaline still pumping through my system. “You’re immortal, dummy.” “I was before I met you,” he quipped.
Jenna Black
When a man sends you an impudent letter, sit right down and give it back to him with interest ten times compounded, and then throw both letters in the wastebasket.
Elbert Hubbard
I did six series for the BBC and that was enough. I’ve been writing for ten years, which is more challenging artistically.
Alexei Sayle
Each of the seventeen tribunals during a long period burned annually, on an average, ten miserable beings!
John Foxe
If one were to bring ten of the wisest men in the world together and ask them what was the most stupid thing in existence, they would not be able to discover anything so stupid as astrology.
David Hilbert
Grief hath two tongues; and never woman yet
Could rule them both without ten women’s wit.
William Shakespeare
A photograph is worth a thousand words, provided it is accompanied by only ten words.
Edward Steichen
I believe myself to be writing a book on economic theory which will largely revolutionize – not, I suppose, at once but in the course of the next ten years – the way the world thinks about economic problems.
John Maynard Keynes
Ali’s got a left, Ali’s got a right – when he knocks you down, you’ll sleep for the night; and when you lie on the floor and the ref counts to ten, hope and pray that you never meet me again.
Muhammad Ali
A cynic is just a man who found out when he was about ten that there wasn’t any Santa Claus, and he’s still upset. Yes, there’ll be more war ; and soon, I don’t doubt. There always has been. There’ll be deaths and disappointments and failures. When they come, you meet them.
James Gould Cozzens
A cynic is just a man who found out when he was ten that there wasn’t any Santa Claus, and he’s still upset.
James Gould Cozzens
I’ve been sort of traveling around the country for ten years talking about independent features.
Brian De Palma
The less people that are on the stage, there’s more drama. You start living the music with each individual. When you see a band with ten people on stage, just a huge ensemble, you don’t know who’s doing what.
Greg Lake
I told personal stories the way [Bill] Cosby would spin a yarn for ten minutes. I think in hindsight it works better as a long story than as a condensed monologue.
Ed Helms
I’ve met people who will go to a movie that I can’t stand and they say that they saw that movie ten times. There’s something they like and identified in that movie, and I don’t see it.
Oliver Stone
I like to be in bed by nine and asleep by ten. I like to wake up early, go to the gym at 7am, that’s my regime.
A. J. Pritchard
What is this world?–A term which men have got,
To signify not one in ten knows what;
A term, which with no more precision passes
To point out herds of men than herds of asses;
In common use no more it means, we find,
Than many fools in same opinions joined.
Charles Churchill
My theory is that nine times out of ten, if there’s a depression, more a social depression than anything, it brings out the best art in black people. The best example is, Reagan and Bush gave us the best years of hiphop.
Stuart Pearce will be a massive influence but we also need ten others to be
massive influences
Kevin Keegan
I lived with them in my studio in New York. And of course if I were doing that book today or even ten years, fifteen years later, I would have gone to where the wild ducks were and where I could study them – I would have gone to the country somewhere.
Robert McCloskey
No one is talking about occupying Iraq for five to ten years.
Richard Perle
My big dream back then was to buy an IBM Selectric. I still have that dream. I really ought to buy a word-processor. Half the cabbies at Rocky own computers. They tell me they can write failed novels ten times faster on a PC.
Gary Reilly
I’ve been a New Yorker for ten years, and the only people who are nice to us turn out to be Moonies.
P. J. O’Rourke
On a scale of one to ten, I’m probably a six when it comes to flirting. I’m quite shy.
Liam Payne
Beginning with the first bite, and for every bite after, that try to chew ten times.
Aaron Hoopes
If I make my window ten days for stand-up, the conclusion is that I failed and that I’m not good at stand-up. If I make it ten years – if I just wait – the conclusion might be something totally different. I think it’s so cool to do things in which you discover the malleability of your own mind.
Demetri Martin
In the sick room, ten cents’ worth of human understanding equals ten dollars’ worth of medical science.
Martin H. Fischer
It wasn’t until the movie came out that it all changed for us. Some people say it was the start of Ten Years After, but in another way, it was the beginning of the end.
Alvin Lee
You only need a few good stocks in your lifetime. I mean how many times do you need a stock to go up ten-fold to make a lot of money? Not a lot.
Peter Lynch
Mondays I sleep. I go in at ten, do my lift, watch the game from the day before. Tuesday is off, but I go in, lift, watch film. Then I have French toast with my sister.
Ndamukong Suh
Everybody expects the fairy tale – you’re going to be together forever with somebody. I don’t really subscribe to that. I’d love that to happen if that happened, but ten years is enough. Ten years is a good thing with somebody, I think. It’s a nice thing. A lot of good love can happen in ten years.
Jim Carrey
Mister, I don’t want no trouble. I just came downtown here to get some hard rock candy for my kids, some gingham for my wife. I don’t even know what gingham is, but she goes through about ten rolls a week of that stuff. I ain’t looking for no trouble, Mister.
Bill Hicks
A low view of God is the cause of a hundred lesser evils. A high view of God is the solution to ten thousand temporal problems.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
FACE A SINGLE FOE as if you are facing ten thousand enemies; face ten thousand enemies as a single foe.
Morihei Ueshiba
My oldest sister was an actress living in NYC by the time I was ten, and desperately wanted to be the one in charge of the words.
Julianna Baggott
[The kidnapping] happened 14 years ago, and I didn’t talk about it for ten years because I was too embarrassed. I was too scared. I thought, People are gonna judge me, they’re gonna pity me, and I don’t want that. Because I’m not a victim – I’m a survivor.
Frida Farrell
I stopped playing the drums when I was ten, and I picked up Rubik’s Cubes. I was doing that for a while, and then I got into cinematography.
Rich Brian
Nine English traditions out of ten date from the latter half of the nineteenth century.
C.P. Snow
Nine times out of ten, I’m trying to meet someone else’s expectations, whether it’s the director or the writer or the animator, when I go back in to re-record a line. I’m the icing on the cake, but the cake is the thing. I’m really just a hood ornament on a very solid vehicle.
Adrian Pasdar
My parents got divorced when I was about ten years old, but I saw my mom go work two and three jobs to make sure we didn’t miss a beat.
LeToya Luckett
Rumor with her ten thousand tongues is diffusing her uncertain sounds in almost every ear.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
Yeah, I was in the phase for the last ten years or so where every record I made I said OK, that’s the last one, I don’t want to record anymore, I don’t want to do this any more, I don’t want to have a public life.
Rosanne Cash
The Ten Commandments are the divinely revealed law.
Roy Moore
Evolved? As a dancer? Me? I don’t fall down as much, unless it’s part of the scripted dance. I don’t step on other people’s toes anymore. I think if I started the show a one out of ten dancer, now I am a two and a half.
Cory Monteith
Singers can also get away with a lot based on youth, strength and enthusiasm, only to find ten years later that what was once just a niggling problem has brought their careers to an end.
Renee Fleming
I am finished with cities. I spent four years in New York, ten in Paris, and I was in Belgrade for a while. To me now they are just airports.
Emir Kusturica
The one great exception to the apathy on reunification is, naturally enough, Berlin. Encircled by the hostile Soviet Zone for ten years, at times blockaded and constantly at the Russians’ mercy, Berliners are committed to this one goal with a unique urgency.
J. Anthony Lukas
When the sea goes down, there will come from the mainland boats and men. And they will find ten dead bodies and an unsolved problem on Indian Island.
Agatha Christie
During the ten years I lived in the U.K., I frequently attended an Anglican church just outside of London. I enjoyed the energetic singing and the thoughtful homilies. And yet, I found it easy to be a pew warmer, a consumer, a back row critic.
Gary Hamel
One horse-laugh is worth ten thousand syllogisms. It is not only more effective; it is also vastly more intelligent.
H. L. Mencken
The Ten Commandments are the most visible symbol because these commandments are recognized by Christians and Jews alike as being the foundation of our system of public morality.
Pat Robertson
Every morning as I read the scripture, every night, I quote the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule.
Bill Bright
Writers write these male stereotypes, and it makes it ten times more interesting if a woman says the lines.
Sigourney Weaver
One should travel as light as possible. I can organize myself to go on a ten-day trip with just hand luggage.
Oscar de la Renta
I have seldom written a story, long or short, that I did not have to write and rewrite. There are single stories of mine that have taken me ten or twelve years to get written.
Sherwood Anderson
Wayne’s World’ is my all time favorite comedy. I used to watch it on VHS on repeat with my brother when I was ten years old.
James Lafferty
Northern Ireland are ten minutes away from their finest victory. There’s 15 minutes to go here.
John Motson
I did a couple of films, I was very lucky at the beginning of my career… and then, I never had another job here for ten years probably and I moved to Europe.
Rupert Everett
Ransack the history of revolutions, and it will be found that every fall of a regime has been presaged by a defiance which went unpunished. It is as true today as it was ten thousand years ago that a Power from which the magic virtue has gone out, falls.
Bertrand de Jouvenel
The Ten Commandments being taken out of the public schools. I want them back.
Kinky Friedman
Ten thousand casks, Forever dribbling out their base contents, Touch’d by the Midas finger of the state, Bleed gold for ministers to sport away. Drink, and be mad then; ’tis your country bids!
William Cowper
What a fine-looking thing is war!
Yet, dress it as we may, dress and feather it, daub it with gold, huzza it, and sing swaggering songs about it,–what is it, nine times out of ten, but murder in uniform!
Douglas William Jerrold
I lack the skill to hold a story line for the length required for a novel or even a short story. I have never had an idea that could withstand a hundred thousand words, or even ten thousand words of rubber meeting the road.
Henry Rollins
In your training, do not be in a hurry, for it takes a minimum of ten years to master the basics and advance to the first rung. Never think of yourself as an all-knowing, perfected master; you must continue to train daily with your friends and students and progress together in the Art of Peace.
Morihei Ueshiba
Nuclear power generation has been given a thrust by the use of uranium-based fuel which US is set to supply to India if the deal comes through. However, there would be a requirement for ten-fold increase in nuclear power generation even to attain a reasonable degree of energy self-sufficiency for our country.
Abdul Kalam
When I look at my career, the bulk of it has been television, and I love working in television. But there’s a speed at which you do it. You’re doing seven to ten pages a day on a series, and it’s hard to feel like you’re doing the detail-oriented work that I like to do.
Sarah Paulson
Ten years ago, I still feared loss enough to abandon myself in order to keep things stable. I’d smile when I was sad, pretend to like people who appalled me. What I now know is that losses aren’t cataclysmic if they teach the heart and soul their natural cycle of breaking and healing.
Martha Beck
If this were a fantasy world, there would be ten of me and we would each be doing what we wanted to do.
George Lucas
I can’t rate myself, but if you ask Russell I’m sure he’d give me a ten out of ten.
Katy Perry
I feel sure that the police are helping us more than I could do in ten years. They are making more anarchists than the most prominent people connected with the anarchist cause could make in ten years. If they will only continue I shall be very grateful; they will save me lots of work.
Emma Goldman
I was never a Boy Scout, but oh, I wanted to be one when I was a kid about ten or eleven years old. But there wasn’t anyplace where I could ever join the Boy Scouts.
Carl Barks
When I was ten, I went to seven schools in one year in Nova Scotia. Me and my mum moved there so that I could be closer to my dad, who is an ice-truck driver, but it didn’t work out.
Mia Goth
The ten thousand states of mind are hallucinatory. Hallucinations are real. Dreams are real. But there are some things more real.
Frederick Lenz
We’re sharing things in our lives everyday that we wouldn’t have picked up the phone to talk about ten years ago.
Gary Vaynerchuk
– Oh no, The Collective Farm policy was a terrible struggle… Ten million (he said holding up his hands). It was fearful. Four years it lasted. It was absolutely necessary.
Joseph Stalin
Ten cooks’ shops! …and all within three minutes’ driving! one would think that all the cooks in the world …had said – Come, let us all go live at Paris: the French love good eating – they are all gourmands – we shall rank high.
Laurence Sterne
I don’t think fashion has to change every five minutes. I’d like these to be clothes you can wear for a long time – ten, 20 years; pass on to your daughter. Why buy vintage when you can open your own closet!
Tom Ford
There seems to be an increasing awareness of something we Americans have known for some time – that the ten most dangerous words in the English language are “Hi, I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
Ronald Reagan
I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions.
Vaclav Havel
What matters it that man should have a little more knowledge of the universe? If he has it, he gets little higher. Is he not always infinitely removed from the end, and is not the duration of our life equally removed from eternity, even if it lasts ten years longer?
Blaise Pascal
I think Hollywood has always, you know, there’s always been glamour associated to it. And especially in the last ten years there has been a growing sort of obsession with celebrity life and celebrity culture.
Debra Messing
I’m counting to ten in my head.” “Is it helping?” “No.” “It doesn’t help me with you either. I used to life weights to alleviate frustration, but someone blowtorched my weight bench. How did you do it, by the way?” “I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you.
Ilona Andrews
We at the Big Ten don’t want to be like the SEC … in any way, shape or form.
Bret Bielema
Aldous Huxley took the drug mescaline and then chronicled his experience in the book The Doors of Perception. Now, I don’t actually think that’s the first thing he wrote: he probably wrote ‘my brain is melting’ ten thousand times, but it was the book that the critics latched on to.
Bill Bailey
I’ve been writing a lot, I’ve a few projects I’m trying to finance, I do some acting, I do some directing… Apart from that, if I could get lower that a ten handicap on my golf game I’d be thrilled.
Paul Michael Glaser
The distance from nothing to a little, is ten thousand times more, than from it to the highest degree in this life.
John Donne
You can’t give up something you really believe in for financial reasons. If you die by the roadside – so be it. But at least you know you’ve tried. Ten minutes in the music scene was the equal of one hundred years outside of it.
Robert Plant
I’m sure most of us remember being a kid and you have all of this endless time where two weeks before Christmas feels like ten years. I used to go to bed to try and go to sleep to try and make it go faster.
Andrea Arnold
A good leader for instance is somebody like Nelson Mandela. I do not have seen such people coming every generation, maybe every ten generations, every hundred generations. People who are miracle workers.
Chinua Achebe
We have believed at CA that consolidation of this industry is something that was required ten years ago.
Sanjay Kumar
About the use of language: it is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. It is equally vain to try to do it with ten blunt axes instead.
Edsger Dijkstra
Tawny,” I barked. My voice held the authority of a drill sergeant. She jumped. “I am NOT making out with you until the end of time. You want to do this, then you’ve got to work for it. Now, TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES.” “Oh,” said Hugh. “I’ve waited ten years to hear you say that to another woman.
Richelle Mead
Nine times of ten an army has been destroyed because its supply lines have been severed
Douglas MacArthur
All men are born with a nose and ten fingers, but no one was born with a knowledge of God.
Everone has a pain thermometer that goes from zero to ten. No one will make a change until they reach ten. Nine won’t do it. At nine you are still afraid. Only ten will move you, and when you’re there, you’ll know. No one can make that decision for you.
Vicki Myron
My dad used to take my younger sister Whitney and I to the firing range, and he’d stand behind us as we shot. We were tiny, tiny girls, only about ten years old at the time, so the recoil when we pulled the trigger would send us flying backwards. But he’d stand behind us and make sure we were safe.
Amber Heard
Our goal must be simple. We must have a Christian nation built on God’s law, on the ten Commandments. No apologies.
Randall Terry
To me, it’s just not that important whether someone climbs the Eigerwand in ten hours or in three.
Reinhold Messner
You asked my opinion and I gave it. Of course you have to remember that if I’d been on the island with Gilligan, he’d have been killed ten minutes into the first episode. Where I come from, incompetence and stupidity are reasons for justifiable homicide. (Varyk)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
When there’s not ten feet of snow on the ground I ride my bike down the streets of New York, and I literally hear two things out of car windows as cabs pass by me: They either yell, “Hey, dummy,” or “Hey, Mayhem.”
Dean Winters
Unfortunately, manipulation and defamation are part of the bad manners that have been prevailing in Poland’s politics for ten years now.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski
I went to a very militantly Republican grammar school and, under its influence, began to revolt against the Establishment, on thesimple rule of thumb, highly satisfying to a ten-year-old, that Irish equals good, English equals bad.
Bernadette Devlin
I joined the air force. I took to it immediately when I arrived there. I did three years, eight months, and ten days in all, but it took me a year and a half to get disabused of my romantic notions about it.
Morgan Freeman
My earliest memory is seeing Michael Jackson in Melbourne with my sister when I was about ten. I still have this souvenir stick with a glove that would light up and make a peace sign in a bunch of different colors. I’m so happy my mom didn’t throw that out.
Emilie de Ravin
Another ten points from Gryffindor,” said Snape. “I would expect nothing more sophisticated from you, Ronald Weasley, the boy so solid he cannot Apparate half an inch across a room.
J. K. Rowling
Well, I’ve been happily supporting myself for ten years now on the hustle and trade of live entertainment. I guess my breakthrough moment was when I decided to go for it once and for all.
Jason Mraz
The question is not, could Utah compete week in and week out in the ACC, SEC, Big Ten, whatever, .. The question is, in a one- game setting, can Utah compete, can Utah get the market share, sell the tickets of one of those more familiar institutions. Nobody knows that answer.
Craig Thompson
Name ten songs you want to hear again before you die, get all of your friends together and scream them. Because right now all you have is time, but someday that time will run out. That’s the only thing you can be absolutely certain about.
Paul Baribeau
If you have ten thousand regulations you destroy all respect for the law.
Winston Churchill
Monty Python paid me ВЈ20,000 to write, direct and assemble them – the cheapskates! I told them I’d never earned less in a year since leaving Cambridge. The first show sold out in 43 seconds and we ended up performing ten in total. We had no idea there would be such demand.
Eric Idle
All told, she owned fourteen books, but she saw her story as being made up predominantly of ten of them. Of those ten, six were stolen, one showed up at the kitchen table, two were made for her by a hidden Jew, and one was delivered by a soft, yellow-dressed afternoon.
Markus Zusak
That was the change in her from ten years ago; that, indeed, was her reward, this haunting, magical sadness which spoke straight to the heart and struck silence; it was the completion of her beauty.
Evelyn Waugh
The difficulty of explaining ‘why I am a Catholic’ is that there are ten thousand reasons all amounting to one reason: that Catholicism is true.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
A few men own from ten thousand to two hundred thousand acres each. The poor Laborer can find no resting place, save on the barren mountain, or in the trackless desert.
Denis Kearney
If you approached people with trust and affection you would have ten-fold trust and thousand-fold.
Mahatma Gandhi
If you hide information from people, don’t want people to see the Ten Commandments or don’t want people to hear about Darwin, aren’t we hiding things that we know from our future generations? I just think that that’s incorrect.
John Mellencamp
For ‘The Big Wander,’ I probably had ten different outlines before I made myself start writing. I would sleep on each one, thinking it was wonderful, but I would always awake perceiving some flaw.
Will Hobbs
The reflections on a day well spent furnish us with joys more pleasing than ten thousand triumphs.
Thomas a Kempis
The economic insecurity of the past ten to 15 years, the 2008 Wall Street crash, NAFTA, and the loss of millions of good jobs – these directly grow out of Democratic Party neo-liberal policies.
Jill Stein
The ten thousand things flourish and then each returns to the root from which it came. Returning to the root is stillness. Through stillness each fulfils its destiny.
Not every woman is obsessed with shoes. But every woman is more obsessed with shoes than her husband is (although that’s not too difficult to accomplish, since your husband has exactly two pairs–black shoes that are ten years old and barely broken in and sneakers that are so dirty they classify as a biohazard).
Peter Scott
Earrings are the same as sneezes: Two is okay, but ten in a row is annoying. If you have two then, God bless you.
Demetri Martin
Most of my painting is done sitting in a chair with a book. I’d say it’s 80 per cent sitting and reading, 10 per cent eating and ten per cent painting.
Susan Rothenberg
All lovers swear more performance than they are able, and yet reserve an ability that they never perform; vowing more than the perfection of ten, and discharging less than the tenth part of one.
William Shakespeare
It is finer to bring one noble human being into the world and rear it well… than to kill ten thousand.
Olive Schreiner
I’m making some of the greatest art being made now. It’ll take the art world ten years to get around to it.
Jeff Koons
One of the books that has guided me in the last ten years of my life to help me to be that leader is the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh’s Being Peace. He’s a Vietnamese monk. He was nominated for a Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King.
Sandra Cisneros
Better to die ten thousand deaths than wound my honor.
Joseph Addison
Oh-do be careful with that! That’s my Buddha hand grenade. Twist the head twice and throw it and anyone within ten yards can say their prayers.
Anthony Horowitz
One eye-witness is of more weight than ten hearsays. Those who hear, speak of shat they have heard; whose who see, know beyond mistake.
[Lat., Pluris est oculatus testis unus, quam auriti decem.
Qui audiunt, audita dicunt; qui vident, plane sciunt.]
When a woman thinks her husband is a fool, her marriage is over. They may part in one year or ten; they may live together until death. But if she thinks he is a fool, she will not love him again.
Philippa Gregory
The hardest part about being an entrepreneur is that you’ll fail ten times for every success.
Adam Horowitz
I don’t pretend to understand him, but I can enjoy him as a poet and comedian. I liked the idea of the eternal return. Sometimes I think that being on tour year after year is an eternal return; you play a certain club in Copenhagen and then ten years later you are back again, traveling the same roads year after year.
Dean Wareham
In the next ten years, one of the things you’re bound to hear is that animal protein is one of the most toxic nutrients of all that can be considered. Quite simply, the more you substitute plant foods for animal foods, the healthier you are likely to be.
T. Colin Campbell
Yeah, well, I’ll be glad to birth it if it means I can name him something normal. (Zarek) Yeah, yeah. This from a man who whines like a two-year-old when he stubs his toe. I’d like to see you survive ten hours of childbirth. (Astrid)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
No, I always wanted to be a singer. It was kind of funny that I took this road, started acting, then-almost ten years later-in Wayne’s World people finally got to see me sing. And everyone thought it was dubbed in.
Tia Carrere
When I’m really involved or getting towards the end of a novel, I can write for up to ten hours a day. At those times, it’s as though I’m writing a letter to someone I’m desperately in love with.
Joyce Carol Oates
No creaking gates, no gothic towers, no shuttered windows. Yet for the past ten months this house has been the focus of an astonishing barrage of supernatural activity.
Michael Parkinson
Each of the ten thousand states of mind presents you with a different view of essence and experience.
Frederick Lenz
We sought justice because equal pay for equal work is an American value. That fight took me ten years. It took me all the way to the Supreme Court. And, in a 5 – 4 decision, they stood on the side of those who shortchanged my pay, my overtime, and my retirement just because I am a woman.
Lilly Ledbetter
A lie does not become truth just because ten people are telling it.
Nadeem Aslam
Many, if not most, of the best and most lasting children’s books have multiple levels, some of which are not fully accessible to their most likely readers…at least, not on their first read-through at age eight or ten or fifteen.
Patricia C. Wrede
I counted to ten slowly, using binary notation.
Robert A. Heinlein
Better the illusions that exalt us than ten thousand truths.
Alexander Pushkin
Metallica's the only band i've ever been in. I'm not su

Metallica’s the only band i’ve ever been in. I’m not sure that when it ends in five, ten years, I’m going to put an ad in the paper saying, ‘stupid drummer looking for stupid people to play music with,’ Metallica is it and I think when that ceases, that’s it.
Lars Ulrich
Personally, I do not believe that it is the duty of any man or woman to write a novel. In nine cases out of ten, there would be greater merit in leaving it unwritten.
Agnes Repplier
I’ve got four lovely children, ten lovely grandchildren, and I left parliament to devote more time to politics, and I think that what is really going on in Britain is a growing sense of alienation. People don’t feel anyone listens to them.
Tony Benn
If only Heaven will give me just another ten years… Just another five more years, then I could become a real painter.
He knew. I could see it in his face. Look, if someone gets infected you’ve got between ten and twenty seconds to kill them. It might be your brother or your sister or your oldest friend. It makes no difference. And just so you know where you stand – if it happens to you, I’ll do it in a heartbeat.
Better to die ten thousand deaths, Than wound my honour.
Joseph Addison
I played the cello from when I was ten, and then I bought a guitar from the father of some friends of mine and played that for a while. And then when I was fourteen or so, I bought a guitar – a real nice one – in Durham, North Carolina, that I worked with up until I was about twenty-five.
James Taylor
Philosophers have often held dispute As to the seat of thought in man and brute For that the power of thought attends the latter My friend, thy beau, hath made a settled matter, And spite of dogmas current in all ages, One settled fact is better than ten sages. (O,Tempora! O,Mores!)
Edgar Allan Poe
A typical neuron makes about ten thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given the billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
David Eagleman
Women, despite the fact that nine out of ten of them go through life with a death-bed air either of snatching-the-last-moment or with martyr-resignation, do not die tomorrow–or the next day. They have to live on to any one of many bitter ends.
Zelda Fitzgerald
If you have a good idea, get it out there. For every idea I’ve realized, I have ten I sat on for a decade till someone else did it first. Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.
Joss Whedon
Over the last ten years, technological advances have dramatically lowered the financial bar for starting a new company, but the courage bar for building a great company remains as high as it has ever been.
Ben Horowitz
Two days ago we waded through the mud out to this grave beneath the pines at the foot of the hill to place a Christmas wreath on it, hoping he would look down from the Paradise of Ten Billion Trees and Unrationable Dog Biscuits and pity us.
Eugene O’Neill
In a spiral galaxy, the ratio of dark-to-light matter is about a factor of ten. That’s probably a good number for the ratio of our ignorance-to-knowledge. We’re out of kindergarten, but only in about third grade.
Vera Rubin
That an error made on your own is safer than ten truths accepted on faith, because the first leaves you the means to correct it but the second destroys your capacity to distinguish truth from error.
Ayn Rand
A terrible thing about getting oldish is that your friends start dying, and in the last ten years I have lost seven or eight of my closest.
Norman MacCaig
There were also horror shows on the radio. Very terrifying and thrilling to me as a kid. They had all these creepy sound effects. They would come on at ten o’clock at night, and I just would scare myself to death.
Jessica Hagedorn
Flight out of the atmosphere is a simple thing to do and should have been available to the public twenty years ago. Ten years from now, we will have space tourism where you will be able to see the black sky and the curvature of the earth. It will be the most exciting roller coaster ride you can buy.
Burt Rutan
She was wearing a canary-yellow two-piece bathing suit, one piece of which she would not actually be needing for another nine or ten years.
J. D. Salinger
I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach.
Charles Spurgeon
I’ve never voted. I’ve never voted yet although I could have voted for the last ten years.
John Lennon
No second chances in the land of a thousand dances, the valley of ten million insanities.
Ry Cooder
Flying is always an unpleasant experience. You wait an hour for every ten minutes you actually spend getting anywhere.
Andy Rooney
One and one is two, and two and two is four, and five will get you ten if you know how to work it.
Mae West
Yes, well, let me tell you that if nobody had ever learned to quote, very few people would be in love with La Rochefoucauld. I bet you I don’t know ten souls who read him without a middleman.
Dorothy Parker
If you’re in jazz and more than ten people like you, you’re labeled commercial.
Herbie Mann
When angry count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred.
Thomas Jefferson
I was very close to my father. At the age of ten I wanted to do plays, and my father was very encouraging. When I applied to different acting schools, he was right there and very supportive.
Kim Cattrall
It seemed to Scobie that life was immeasurably long. Couldn’t the test of man have been carried out in fewer years? Couldn’t we have committed our first major sin at seven, have ruined ourselves for love or hate at ten, have clutched at redemption on a fifteen-year-old deathbed?
Graham Greene
We are fifty or a hundred years behind the advanced countries. We must make good this distance in ten years. Either we do it, or they will crush us.
Joseph Stalin
Nine times out of ten we find reasons for everything going on that aren’t paranormal.
Brian Robertson
We stand at a moment in history without precedent. Decisions that are ours to make over the next ten years will have a sweeping impact on the future direction of life on the planet.
Eban Goodstein
When I did ‘Parent Trap,’ I was ten. I was thrown off by the whole fame thing.
Lindsay Lohan
For many years, Messi and Ronaldo will be the two best. After them, there is Xavi, Andres Iniesta, and others. I hope to be in the top ten.
Andrea Pirlo
Just ten of the Jewish billionaires on this Earth have more than enough to transform the occupied territories into heaven. We can put the ‘pal’ back in Palestinian.
Roseanne Barr
God put me on this earth to bring souls back to the Kingdom of God. You don’t need to pray ten times a day – you just need hope. My music is going to stop war; it’s the healing music. I see myself in Brazil, in Syria, in Darfur, and places where they really need hope.
Tory Lanez
Any man whose errors take ten years to correct is quite a man.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
People want to be bowled over by something special. Nine times out of ten you might strike out, but that tenth time, that peak experience, is what people want. That’s what can move the world. That’s art.
Haruki Murakami
This is ten percent luck, Twenty percent skill, Fifteen percent power of will, Five percent pleasure, Fifty percent pain, and a hundred percent reason to remember the name
Mike Shinoda
I have little patience with people who take the Bill of Rights for granted. The Bill of Rights, contained in the first ten amendments to the Constitution, is every American’s guarantee of freedom.
Harry S. Truman
Before my accidents, there were ten thousands things I could do. I could spend the rest of my life dwelling on the things that I had lost, but instead I chose to focus on the nine thousand I still had left.
W Mitchell
One in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a wage.
R. Buckminster Fuller
I always loved animals. And when I was ten, I decided I had to go to Africa and live with animals and write books about them.
Jane Goodall
When I finished [writing it], I was crying. I knew at long last, after ten years of trying, I had written something good.
Ray Bradbury
Human beings only use ten percent of their brains. Ten percent! Can you imagine how much we could accomplish if we used the other sixty percent?
Ellen DeGeneres
I had more trouble than I had a sense of utility or satisfaction. But it served to occupy me and to keep me occupied in a field that I love – which was cinema – while I was waiting to realize the film that I wanted to do, which was Once Upon a Time in America, which took ten years of thinking and working to realize.
Sergio Leone
Advil has a candy coating. It’s delicious. Then it says on the bottle, do not have more than two. Then why do they have a candy coating? I cannot help myself. Let me have ten Advil, I have a sweet tooth.
Mitch Hedberg
If 10 people see my movie and all ten really love it, then that means a lot to me, rather than ten million people go and see it and most of them hate it.
Aamir Khan
What the ten commandments set forth is a strategy. This strategy is a strategy for dominion.
Gary North
I request reason for your golden rule and ask the why and wherefore of your ten commandments.
Anton Szandor LaVey
You have a wonderful organization. I understand you have ten thousand here. And if you count the ones in the various federal prisons, it brings your total membership up to around thirty thousand.
Will Rogers
It may not happen in the first instant, but within ten minutes of meeting a man, a woman has a clear idea of who he is, or at least who he might be for her, and her heart of hearts has already told her whether or not she’s going to fall in love with him.
Orhan Pamuk
The wisest man I have ever known once said to me: ‘Nine out of every ten people improve on acquaintance,’ and I have found his words true.
Frank Arthur Swinnerton
He has come to the most dreadful conclusion a literary man can come to, the conclusion that the ordinary view is the right one. It is only the last and wildest kind of courage that can stand on a tower before ten thousand people and tell them that twice two is four.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I will definitely start in small venues, as I want to find my feet as a performer; the first shows that Westlife did was ten dates at Wembley, which was just crazy. We didn’t have a clue what we were doing because it was so big.
Shane Filan
I was ten. I had noticed something was weird earlier in the day, but I knew from commercials that one’s menstrual period was a blue liquid that you poured like laundry detergent onto maxi pads to test their absorbency. This wasn’t blue, so… I ignored it for a few hours.
Tina Fey
Shockingly, the Bidens donated under $1,000 to all charities combined every year for the ten years prior to 2008.
Larry J. Sabato
I’ve already lived the lives of ten people. My father’s 87 and still going strong. I think there’s a lovely angel watching over me.
David Hasselhoff
When an actor even after ten years of experience puts in effort and treats every day of her work as the first day in her career, she becomes an asset.
Vignesh Shivan
When I was 15, and I just stepped on the A-team, I believed in myself, but I wasn’t cocky in any way. I just wanted something so badly that I could tell people around me that were ten years older that they had to play and perform. I would still say that I had respect.
Ada Hegerberg
I took a course in speed waiting. Now I can wait an hour in only ten minutes.
Steven Wright
Accuse a person of breaking all Ten Commandments, and you’ve written the promo blurb for the dust cover of his tell-all memoir.
P. J. O’Rourke
I was a novelist first. But in the mid 80s, I did work in television for ten years. And yes, that was frequently the reaction to my scripts. People would say, you know, George, this is great. We love it, a terrific script, but it would cost five times our budget to shoot this.
George R. R. Martin
I don’t trust a man who uses the word evil eighteen times in ten minutes. If you’re half evil, nothing soothes you more than to think the person you are opposed to is totally evil.
Norman Mailer
From Nature’s chain whatever link you strike,
Tenth or ten thousandth, breaks the chain alike.
Alexander Pope
For me there is something primitively soothing about this music, and it went straight to my nervous system, making me feel ten feet tall.
Eric Clapton
Ten out of ten people die, so don’t take life too seriously.
Henry Winkler
Alas! how little can a moment show Of an eye where feeling plays In ten thousand dewy rays: A face o’er which a thousand shadows go!
William Wordsworth
For the first time in history it is now possible to take care of everybody at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. Only ten years ago the ‘more with less’ technology reached the point where this could be done. All humanity now has the option to become enduringly successful.
R. Buckminster Fuller
Everyone wants a piece of land. It’s the only sure investment. It can never depreciate like a car or a washing machine. Land will double its value in ten years. In less than that. Land is going up every day.
Sam Shepard
Now you mustn’t think that I don’t have any ideas for novels in my head. I’ve got ideas for ten novels in my head. But with every idea I have, I already foresee the wrong novels I would write, because I also have critical ideas in my head; I’ve got a full theory of the perfect novel, and that’s what stumps me.
Italo Calvino
Regarding Christianity: Ten thousand difficulties do not make one doubt.
John Henry Newman
Children from ten to twenty don’t want to be understood. Their whole ambition is to feel strange and alien and misinterpreted so that they can live austerely in some stone tower of adolescence, their privacies unviolated.
Phyllis McGinley
You take somebody that cries their goddam eyes out over phoney stuff in the movies, and nine times out of ten they’re mean bastards at heart.
J. D. Salinger
My first ten years in Hollywood were really tough. I’d be coaching friends who came to me for acting advice, and then they’d make it before I did. I’d still be helping them while they were on movie sets and I had four lines on a TV show.
Michael Pena
You were about five feet short of a ten feet jump?
Johnny Knoxville
In seven to ten years video traffic on the Internet will exceed data and voice traffic combined.
Robert Metcalfe
The architect must be a prophet… a prophet in the true sense of the term… if he can’t see at least ten years ahead don’t call him an architect.
Frank Lloyd Wright
I swear I have at least one good song idea a day. But if I don’t get pen to paper in ten seconds, it’s gone forever.
Cary Ann Hearst
We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.
Bill Gates
We’ve ceased making progress at the top in any industry anywhere in the world . In the United States, women have had 14% of the top corporate jobs and 17% of the board seats for 10 years. Ten years of no progress.
Sheryl Sandberg
Be grateful for the love you have to share-share it, and it will return to you ten times over.
James Van Praagh
You may have married her, but she is mine. Do you think I shall let you take her? She may be ten times your wife, but, by God, you shall never have her.
Georgette Heyer
We are not really privy to all that crazy stuff that goes on in the show. I go to work, eat, and talk about food. The wild things happen when we aren’t around. I expected Top Chef to last three or four seasons and we are now shooting season ten.
Tom Colicchio
I’ve probably bought ten CDs in my whole life.
Jon Lech Johansen
