Oscar Wilde
2Pac wrote about life threatening situations after being shot so often, it made it seem like he was obsessed with it.

But the main thing I don’t want to be is un-funny. That’s really the mandate. Just whatever we’re doing, make it as funny as we can possibly make it. And believe me, if the show starts going down, we’ll introduce a baby. We’ll do everything that they did on `Family Ties.’ I’m not afraid of that.

Family likeness has often a deep sadness in it. Nature, that great tragic dramatist, knits us together by bone and muscle, and divides us by the subtler web of our brains; blends yearning and repulsion; and ties us by our heart-strings to the beings that jar us at every movement.
George Eliot
Freedom so often means that one isn’t needed anywhere. Here you are an individual, you have a background of your own, you would be missed. But off there in the cities there are thousands of rolling stones like me. We are all alike; we have no ties, we know nobody, we own nothing.

The Americans speak so much about freedom in their sermons. Freedom as a possession is a doubtful thing for a church; freedom must be won under the compulsion of a necessity.

I was at a party, and some squiggly looking dude with a bow tie came up and said, ‘How’d you like to be on TV?’ Turns out he was the programming guy at the Food Network. They had me come into the office, and I did a ‘Ready, Set, Cook’ with Emeril Lagasse, I believe.
Mario Batali
I am crazy about time cuts. I have a theory that the audience tie everything together so they don’t see time cuts but the time cuts give us the possibility of jumping in time, which means a psychological evolution can be cut down.
Lars von Trier
What is better than to love and live with the loved? — But that must sometimes bring us to live with the dead; and this too turns at last into a very tranquil and sweet tie, safe from change and injury.
George Eliot

Colin Firth

Marley Dias
Ambition breaks the ties of blood, and forgets the obligations of gratitude.

Jared Leto
I’m not big on flak jackets and tie-dyed shirts. You know, that’s not me.

Jennifer Grant
Tie two birds together. They will not be able to fly, even though they now have four wings.
But this is inaccurate. A runaway train is an accident. Me, I’ll jump in front of the tracks. I’ll even tie myself down in front of the speeding engine. There’s some illogical part of me hat still believes if you want Superman to show up, first there’s got to be someone worth saving.
Jodi Picoult
One thing you have got to do politically is to identify the ties that bind society together and try to strengthen them.

Sherrilyn Kenyon
Many men I come across see women in an antagonistic way, and it’s always the basis for a bad relationship.

Matthew Hussey

[Adolf Hitler] would wear whatever what was put in front of him. He didn’t match his ties or his shoes with his clothes, it was as if he deliberately dressed in such a way as to get Eva to get upset. It was his form of teasing or perhaps of controlling [Eva Braun], manipulating her emotions.
Gretl Braun

Gentlemen prefer bonds.
Andrew Mellon

Edward Zwick
It’s only now that I see the bigger picture: Our ways to attain spirituality may be different – through diverse religious, customs and traditions – but they’re modeled on similar principles and ideologies. That’s what ties us all together.

Albert Einstein
-‘What do ties matter, Jeeves, at a time like this?’ There is no time, sir, at which ties do not matter

Adam Schlesinger
The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated media outlets in Egypt tried to sour the ties between our two countries, but our ties are very strong. No negative stance has been taken by either side against the other. Rumors are being spread by the enemies of our two countries. We pay no attention to them.

Centralized sounds good … but the reality is that the National Guard and Army don’t have the kind of ties with local organizations that ultimately deliver lots of service, your nonprofits, churches, humanitarian organizations. Those types of linkages get built up over time, in local communities.
Peter May
Having children with someone is the real bond.

For as a surfeit of the sweetest things The deepest loathing to the stomach brings, Or as tie heresies that men do leave Are hated most of those they did deceive, So thou, my surfeit and my heresy, Of all be hated, but the most of me!
William Shakespeare
On all levels primary, and secondary and undergraduate – mathematics is taught as an isolated subject with few, if any, ties to the real world. To students, mathematics appears to deal almost entirely with things whlch are of no concern at all to man.
Morris Kline
Oh, indeed there is a tie between Iraq and what happened on 9/11. It’s not that Saddam Hussein was somehow himself and his regime involved in 9/11, but, if you think about what caused 9/11, it is the rise of ideologies of hatred that lead people to drive airplanes into buildings in New York.
Condoleezza Rice
I did almost every job in the bank. It was real life, waking up in the morning, putting on a suit and tie and then having to go to work.
Romain Grosjean
I’m a good collaborative writer. I can usually come in and add a couple lines to something, and add a riff or a B-section, or a bridge that will tie things together. I can do stuff like that. But to write a whole song, I don’t have the patience for that, I guess.
James Young
The complete emancipation of women from the ties which held them back in the past, during the ages of despotism and ignorance, is a basic aim of the Party and the Revolution. Women make up one half of society. Our society will remain backward and in chains unless its women are liberated, enlightened and educated.
Saddam Hussein
I always love writing the third book in a series because you get to tie up all the threads that you put out in the first two books. You finally let people know what really happens and reveal all the secrets and bring certain characters together.
Trudi Canavan
I absolutely love Ireland. It’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and I have strong ties here. Both my grandmothers are from Ireland, and I have spent every summer in Bantry since my father, who is an artist, had the romantic idea 20 years ago to buy an old farmhouse on the west coast and renovate it.
Emily Ratajkowski
I tell you of all history the most beautiful product is the family tie.
Zona Gale
I’ve been hopping around in sitcom land. I did an episode of ‘Roseanne,’ ‘Family ‘Ties’ and ‘Who’s the Boss.’
Christina Pickles
Memory is this one attempt to not be erased by time. And I think that ties back to what I learned watching my grandmother lose her memories is, you know, we are all facing erasure eventually.
Anthony Doerr
Martial arts is the kind of action that does tie in well to the supernatural.
Scott Derrickson
It is easy to ignore responsibility when one is only an intermediate link in a chain of action.
Stanley Milgram
He that does a base thing in zeal for his friend burns the golden thread that ties their hearts together.
Jeremy Taylor
For years, I was often afraid to speak up when I didn’t fully understand a script. I’d tie myself in knots.
Michelle Dockery
The best thing about it is getting it all out there. Whatever you have on your chest, it just feels really good to talk to somebody who you have no ties to… so I think therapy is great. I think everyone should try it out.
Tyler Posey
Computer science … jobs should be way more interesting than even going to Wall Street or being a lawyer–or, I can argue, than anything but perhaps biology, and there it’s just a tie.
Bill Gates
I was also surprised by the alacrity and dedication we devote to the damaging exercise of remembering, which after all brings nothing good and serves only to hinder our normal functioning, like those bags of sand athletes tie around their calves for training.
Juan Gabriel
All spiritual strength for ourselves, all noble ties to one another, have their real source in that inner sanctuary where God denies His lonely audience to none. Its secrets are holy; its asylum, inviolate; its consolations, sure; and all are open to the simple heart-word, “Thou art my hiding-place.
James Martineau
In the multitude of middle-aged men who go about their vocations in a daily course determined for them much in the same way as the tie of their cravats, there is always a good number who once meant to shape their own deeds and alter the world a little.
George Eliot
Portugal. The Man, to me, doesn’t have any real ties. We try to change things up with every album, really progress, and let things happen.
John Gourley
While people out there on the spot certainly have to be held accountable for what they’ve done personally, the chain of command responsibility for this strikes me as just as important and should be dealt with.
William Eldridge Odom
Oh, darling, let your body in, let it tie you in, in comfort.
Anne Sexton
Racism and sexism are not “problems” or “topics.” They are ways of defining reality and living our lives that most of us learned along with learning how to tie our shoes and how to drink from a cup.
Paula Rothenberg
It is pandemonium backstage. I straighten ties, see if their shoes are laced – and I always have to remember to check their flies just before they walk out.
Joseph Abboud
At the end of the seven years, ‘Family Ties’ voluntarily went off the air. And, we went off as the #1 show on TV that week. We cut down the nets on stage 24 and moved on with the rest of our lives. Always to carry with us the blessing of what we had gone through together.
Gary David Goldberg
Read about a few men who wear (or wore) bow ties as an act of defiance, and check out a tie that makes a strong statement. Bow ties are cool.
Matt Smith
We must continue to deepen our ties to the Americas and the Caribbean, our common work to educate children, fight drugs, strengthen democracy, and increase trade.
William J. Clinton
The bond between a man and his profession is similar to that which ties him to his country; it is just as complex, often ambivalent, and in general it is understood completely only when it is broken: by exile or emigration in the case of one’s country, by retirement in the case of a trade or profession.
Primo Levi
Whoever uses force without Right … puts himself into a state of War with those, against whom he uses it, and in that state all former Ties are canceled, all other Rights cease, and every one has a Right to defend himself, and to resist the Aggressor.
John Locke
The FCO must help Turkey reinforce accountable state institutions, while also developing ties far beyond them: the UK needs a deeper and therefore more durable relationship with the Turkish people, whichever background they hold, while working to uphold the values of human rights and democracy that benefit them all.
Crispin Blunt
For the most part, it is true, ordinary men and women regard mathematics with energetic distaste, counting its concepts as rhapsodic as cauliflower. This is a mistake-there is no other word. Where else can the restless human mind find means to tie the infinite in a finite bow?
David Berlinski
My genes tie me to those that despised me.
Brother Ali
With an evening coat and a white tie, anybody, even a stockbroker, can gain a reputation for being civilized
Oscar Wilde
First of all, who’s your A&R?
A mountain climber who plays an electric guitar?
But he don’t know the meaning of dope,
When he’s lookin for a suit and tie rap
That’s cleaner than a bar of soap!
And I’m the dirtiest thing in sight,
Matter of fact, bring out the girls and let’s have a mud fight.
Acting school was summer camp, and I needed concentration camp. I had so many different ideas swirling between culture and how to tie things together.
Ajay Naidu
Actually, after the release of the Bond film, the producers came back to me to offer me another one, but I didn’t have any juice left for an immediate encore.
Roger Spottiswoode
The Senate is the big prize. Until recently, Democrats felt confident they could get the four seats they needed to take back control if [Hillary] Clinton is in the White House and Vice President Tim Kaine held the tie-breaking vote.
Mara Liasson
-You are on the verge of being truly mad. -No, not at all. Look at me. I can tie my shoelaces. See?
Anne Rice
My mother says men are different from us. She says we want to be in love, but only with the one we want; a man needs to be in love, but he will love the first woman to tie a string to his heart. – Egwene, speaking to Elayne
Robert Jordan
The most important principle of divine philosophy is the oneness of the world of humanity, the unity of mankind, the bond conjoining East and West, the tie of love which blends human hearts.
The genuine coherence of our ideas does not come from the reasoning that ties them together, but from the spiritual impulse that gives rise to them.
Nicolas Gomez Davila
You didn’t question – kind of like, you would go to college. You would wear a tie to work. You would, you know, you would work for 40 years. And then you would play golf for three years, and then you would die. That was how I was raised.
Jim Gaffigan
I was born with this bow tie made of celluloid on my collar.
Sergio Leone
It’s not the name that makes the player. It’s the player.
Barry Bonds
Ties of blood are not always ties of friendship; but friendship founded on merit, on esteem, and on mutual trust, becomes more vital and more tender when strengthened by the ties of blood.
Lord Chesterfield
I like to write scenes in the middle of the night. We could change every word of Family Ties between Monday and Friday.
Gary David
It’s been really fun to see with each album when I change to see the fans of the show emulate my style and with the first record a lot of the kids in the crowd were wearing neck ties like I was and now you’ll see a lot of girls with pink hair. It’s cool, it’s actually really neat.
Avril Lavigne
I’m of the opinion that life doesn’t always tie up neatly at the end of the episode.
Joshua Jackson
What can possibly be the common factor in a Kim Jee-woon film? I think what really ties a lot of my projects together is that there is always a character that believes his life is not exactly the way he wishes it to be. My regard for that character turns out to be a very sympathetic one.
Kim Jee-woon
Don’t open your diamonds in a vegetable market. Tie them in bundle and keep them in your heart, and go your own way.
Yet, upon the whole, the space I traversed is unlikely to become the haunt of civilized man, or will only become so in isolated spots, as a chain of connection to a more fertile country; if such a country exist to the westward.
Charles Sturt
A nicely fitted two-button suit is the best thing any guy can have. Guys are lucky: We can wear a suit over and over, just with different shirts and ties.
Ryan Reynolds
Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger links than common joys.
Alphonse de Lamartine
I believe that when you think of the negative, and you get up discouraged – ‘There’s nothing good in my future’ – I really believe it almost ties the hands of God. God works where there’s an attitude of faith. I believe faith is all about hope.
Joel Osteen
I am a personal advocate of strong ties between India and Israel, so I am very happy to see that our relations are progressing so well in all fields of our engagement.
Sushma Swaraj
It is chiefly in New York that I feel induced to urge this, because New York is, by innumerable ties, connected with Europe – more connected than several parts of Europe itself.
Lajos Kossuth
I created Punk for this day and age. Do you see Britney walking around wearing ties and singing punk? Hell no. That’s what I do. I’m like a Sid Vicious for a new generation.
Avril Lavigne
The sight of nature fascinates, the family tie has a sweet enchantment and patriotism gives the religious spirit a fiery devotion to the powers that it reveres.
Bruno Bauer
Growing up, my aunts would always put in hair ties and bows and all kinds of stuff, and I always hated it.
Zazie Beetz
Bright pledge of peace and sunshine! the sure tie Of thy Lord’s hand, the object of His eye! When I behold thee, though my light be dim, Distinct, and low, I can in thine see Him Who looks upon thee from His glorious throne, And minds the covenant between all and One.
Henry Vaughan
The music is in the lead here, and a large part of this, I have no idea what I’m doing. I feel a closer bond with the craft of songwriting, stronger than I ever have.
Ben Harper
Appointing special counsel Robert Mueller to probe Russian meddling in the 2016 election (and any possible ties to President Trump’s campaign) was the only choice the Justice Department had. This is the best way to deal with the conflicts and potential conflicts of interest these matters posed.
Neal Katyal
I am offering you a real commitment— a place in my life forever. Even if our relationship ended, our tie to each other never would. Let me make you a vampire, Leila, and watch decades slide by like days while you’re by my side.
Jeaniene Frost
Disney is thrilling and informative and important and beautiful and suspect. Butts was a detail I observed later and definitely ties in. I suppose I was programmed, yeah.
Mark Morris
Ideology is not the product of thought; it is the habit or the ritual of showing respect for certain formulas to which, for various reasons having to do with emotional safety, we have very strong ties of whose meaning and consequences in actuality we have no clear understanding.
Lionel Trilling
Acting can be so much fun that it’s easy to forget that what you’re doing is a job. But if I’ve got my tie on, I’m going to work.
Ashton Kutcher
You know you’re getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you’re down there.
George Burns
I’m more or less skeptical about marriage, because of family ties, relations between children and parents – it’s all so depressing.
Michelangelo Antonioni
loosely bound
By countless silken ties of love and thought
To everything on earth the compass round
Robert Frost
Language is not an abstract construction of the learned, or of dictionary makers, but is something arising out of the work, needs, ties, joys, affections, tastes, of long generations of humanity, and has its bases broad and low, close to the ground
Noah Webster
In the early-’60s, when you look at that period of time – up to the mod time – when everybody was wearing skinnier suits and skinny lapels and skinny ties – that came out of the States, and that was quite cool.
Paul Weller
Releasing the invisible ties to those who have left you, betrayed you, disappointed you or hurt you, you open up to higher realms of love, peace and joy.
Debbie Ford
I remember when people actually wore coats and ties to theatre every night. They don’t anymore. It’s very different.
Harold Prince
My dad has sayings for days. ‘You bloom where you’re planted’ ties into farming, but it also sums up the ideals and morals that we have as a family by staying in Firebaugh.
Josh Allen
False teaching – anything that would weaken the believer’s ties to his Lord – must be confronted wherever it appears, even if that confrontation requires painful correction.
Max Anders
I’m sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I’m not going to start wearing ties, I’m also not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords.
Linus Torvalds
Do we settle on a regional team because we can go to its ballpark and see its games on television? Or do we choose a team as our favorite because it has an especially appealing player, a Barry Bonds or an Ichiro?
John Thorn
There are secret ties, there are sympathies, by the sweet relationship of which souls that are well matched attach themselves to each other, and are affected by I know not what, which cannot be explained
Pierre Corneille
And so, inevitably, one returns to the centre of Western culture, Greece, and we have never, in any sense, lost our ties with the architectural concepts that this country’s ancient civilization explored and demonstrated, nor with the political and social freedom that lay behind them.
Stephen Gardiner
You never want to tie your responsibility to another’s irresponsibility.
Bill Crawford
Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, they all have ties to Iranian money. I think they are the biggest exist – existential threat… Russia could be up there, but I think it would probably be to one of our NATO allies rather than the homeland.
Eric Bolling
It was the Law of the Sea, they said. Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.
Hunter S. Thompson
The perception of the comic is a tie of sympathy with other men.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Relying on someone else to be successful only ties you down and limits you.
Fabrizio Moreira
A lot of the buildings [in Toronto] around Yonge and Bloor is the architectural equivalent of Kipper Ties and 8″ collar points. It’s ghastly and no amount of street-level retail glitz can lift it.
William Gibson
DNA ties us all together; we share ancestry with barracuda and bacteria and mushrooms, if you go far enough back.
Spencer Wells
Who grasps with his fist one who has an arm of steel injures only his own powerless wrist. Wait till inconstant fortune ties his hand, then … pick out his brains.
Bill Vaughan
I think it’s a good idea to tie Peter Mandelson to a van. Such an act would be cruel and barbaric and inhuman. But it would at least cheer everyone up a bit.
Jeremy Clarkson
The worker can unionize, go out on strike; mothers are divided from each other in homes, tied to their children by compassionate bonds; our wildcat strikes have most often taken the form of physical or mental breakdown.
Adrienne Rich
If our moral attitudes are entirely the result of nonrational factors, such as gut feelings and the absorption of cultural norms, they should either be stable or randomly drift over time, like skirt lengths or the widths of ties. They shouldn’t show systematic change over human history. But they do.
Paul Bloom
I tend to move between turtlenecks and shirts and ties. I don’t really have a uniform in the sense that some people might.
Norman Foster
We do not trust the goodwill of the U.S. They have cut the ties.
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
there are things you mustn’t even try to explain. They either become trite or they tie you down to something that’s only half true.
Martha Albrand
Advertisers also know that humor can help bond us to their product.
Allen Klein
I would say about 90 per cent of drunken idiots in comedy clubs wear ties, particularly in London where I work most of the time.
Lee Mack
Creative capitalism takes this interest in the fortunes of others and ties it to our interest in our own fortunes in ways that help advance both. This hybrid engine of self-interest and concern for others can serve a much wider circle of people than can be reached by self-interest or caring alone.
Bill Gates
As far as the Ukraine is concerned, it’s a mess. And that’s under the Obama’s administration, with his strong ties to NATO.
Donald Trump
Here and gone. That’s what it is to be human, I think—to be both someone and no one at once, to hold a particular identity in the world (our names, our place of origins, our family and affectional ties) and to feel that solid set of ties also capable of dissolution, slipping away, as we become moments of attention.
Mark Doty
If you’re trying to get to the underworld of Berlin, it’s not suits and ties; it’s rock and roll.
David Leitch
I never stop looking for things to try and make myself better.
Barry Bonds
A clean tie attracts the soup of the day.
Paul Dickson
I got my first Charvet knit tie when I was 15. I actually stole it from my father. I love them because you can wear them day to night. They’re French and preppy and have been around since the 1800s.
Nate Berkus
Anyone that looked like that wouldn’t need to tie up girls and imprison them in order to get them to marry him
Cassandra Clare
To be a Bond villain, you only get to do that once in your life. You never get to come back.
Vincent Schiavelli
If an adversary didn’t target our power plants but they did target the core routers, the backbones that tie our internet connections together, entire parts of the United States could be cut off. That would have a tremendous impact on us as a society and it would have a policy backlash.
Edward Snowden
My family have been wool merchants since the 19th century. My first job, aged 18, was buying fabric from my father to produce and sell ties. But I was also at university in Milan.
Pier Luigi Loro Piana
In the earliest cultures any tie between the dancers is slight. In a higher level the choral dancers almost always touch one another and thus force themselves into the same stride and the same movement. The closer the contact, the stronger is the social character of the choral.
Curt Sachs
In 1995, sanctions led Sudan to cut its ties with terrorists and expel Osama bin Laden.
Tom Allen
I think people who are destined to be friends, that are best friends, that genuinely, truly are invested in each other as human beings – a fight won’t separate you forever. I’ve definitely had fights with my best friend, but it has never made us sever ties.
Lili Reinhart
Mafia is a process,not a thing. Mafia is a form of clan – cooperation to which it’s individual members pledge lifelong loyalty….Friendship, connections, family ties, trust, loyalty, obedience – this was the glue that held us together.
Joseph Bonanno
To be with the others, you have to have your hair short and wear ties. So we’re trying to make a third world happen, you know what I mean?
Jimi Hendrix
The rumors of Frank Sinatra’s violence and his ties to organized crime were such that journalists joked in print about me ending up in concrete boots and sleeping with the fishes if I proceeded to write his biography.
Kitty Kelley
Especially when there are difficulties in our relations, parties and statesmen in China and Japan should look over the situation from a higher point of view and preserve the political foundation of bilateral ties.
Wu Bangguo
The cat, covered in dust and standing on its hind legs, bowed to Margarita. Round its neck it was now wearing a made-up white bow tie on an elastic band, with a pair of ladies’ mother-of-pearl binoculars hanging on a cord. It had also gilded its whiskers.
Mikhail Bulgakov
There is no more sure tie between friends than when they are united in their objects and wishes.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Social ties are the cheapest medicine we have.
Shelley E. Taylor
Not conceding a goal at home is always important in a Cup tie. But despite that there is no doubt that this tie is still wide open.
Roberto Mancini
You don’t build a bond without being present.
James Earl Jones
Green business is not about tie-dyed T-shirts. It’s about transforming the industrial system itself into one that looks at all the connections.
Paul Hawken
Baseball is a great example of the cultural ties between the United States and Cuba and a powerful reminder of the shared experience between people that transcends our difficult history.
Ben Rhodes
The soil of friendship is worn out with constant use. Habit may still attach us to each other, but we feel ourselves fettered by it. Old friends might be compared to old married people without the tie of children.
William Hazlitt
My father hails from Shantigrama in Hassan, but my family moved to Bengaluru. Even though I was born and raised in Bengaluru, I have strong ties with my roots.
Pranitha Subhash
Prosperity too often has the same effect on a Christian that a calm at sea has on a Dutch mariner; who frequently, it is said, in those circumstances, ties up the rudder, gets drunk, and goes to sleep.
William Cornelius Van Horne
I can go all over the world with just three outfits: a blue blazer and gray flannel pants, a gray flannel suit, and black tie.
Pierre Cardin
Yet this corporate being, though so insubstantial to our senses, binds, in Burkes words, a man to his country with ties which though light as air, are as strong as links of iron. That is why young men die in battle for their countrys sake and why old men plant trees they will never sit under.
Walter Lippmann
There is more than a verbal tie between the words common, community, and communication…. Try the experiment of communicating, with fullness and accuracy, some experience to another, especially if it be somewhat complicated, and you will find your own attitude toward your experience changing.
John Dewey
I’m kind of a chatty person and the props guys would have to handcuff me and tie me up and sometimes I’d just be chatting and they’d just pop it back in… like: “OK now, shut up!”
Gemma Arterton
Moderate Republicans are reverse Houdinis. They tie themselves up in knots and then tell you they can’t do anything because they’re tied up in knots.
Barney Frank
Pretty mundane closet, but a lot of ties. And I tend not to throw anything out, so I have a lot of clothes from all times from my life. I can be a little sentimental with things like that.
Jeff Koons
In the different voice of women lies the truth of an ethic of care, the tie between relationship and responsibility, and the origins of aggression in the failure of connection.
Carol Gilligan
My dad used to say, ‘Just because you dress up in a coat and tie, it doesn’t influence your intelligence.’
Tiger Woods
I criticized Nawaz Sharif’s personal friendship with Modi, but my point has been that there should be good and friendly ties between India and Pakistan at state level. But friendship between these two leaders hasn’t turned into a friendly relationship between the two states.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
Live with a man forty years. Share his house, his meals, speak on every subject. Then tie him up and hold him over the volcano’s edge, and on that day, you will finally meet the man.
Xiang Yu
Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to the result.
Bob Proctor
Once you let yourself grow close to someone, cutting the ties could be painful.
Haruki Murakami
…home lies in the things you carry with you everywhere and not the ones that tie you down.
Pico Iyer
To reach a port, we must sail – sail, not tie at anchor – sail, not drift.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The United States and Israel have enjoyed a friendship built on mutual respect and commitment to democratic principles. Our continuing search for peace in the Middle East begins with a recognition that the ties uniting our two countries can never be broken.
George W. Bush
A Boy Should Know How to Tie a Tie and Other Lessons for Succeeding in Life.
Antwone Fisher
Immigration reform doesn’t impact me personally; nothing my foundation works on does. But the truth is I have a long history of ties to Latin America. Some of my best friends are in Latin America.
Howard Graham Buffett
A name is precious; it carries inside it a language, a history, a set of traditions, a particular way of looking at the world. Losing it meant losing my ties to all those things too.
Laila Lalami
I do think in this film [Captain America] we try to tie together that their relationship has gotten stronger – that their friendship has gotten stronger from the last film, sure.
Elizabeth Olsen
The spider’s most attenuated thread Is cord, is cable, to man’s tender tie On earthly bliss; it breaks at every breeze.
Edward Young
I like a basic uniform for guys. Steve Jobs is my fashion icon, because he wears the same outfit every day. If you always wear the same thing, you make a statement. Then put a bow tie on and really stand out.
Dhani Jones
The laws of nature are the skeleton of the universe. They support it, give it shape, tie it together. Taken as a whole, they embody a vision of our world that is both breathtaking and awe-inspiring.
James Trefil
I do not mean to suggest for a moment that all it takes to be a top executive is a custom-tailored European suit. You also need the correct shirt and tie.
Dave Barry
If [people] place such things as friendship and family ties above their own productive work, yes, then they are immoral. Friendship, family life and human relationships are not primary in a man’s life. A man who places others first, above his own creative work, is an emotional parasite.
Ayn Rand
I think some of the pressure comes from the expectations of other people. Like if your father played baseball, they expect you to be the big lifesaver or something when you play a sport.
Barry Bonds
I don’t want to be carried out of a club wearing a tie-dye T-shirt and a cap on the wrong way around when I am 70, but I would like to settle down a bit. Maybe with a partner.
Rupert Everett
I don’t like top hats, white ties, and tails.
Fred Astaire
Problems occur when we tie our peace of mind to another’s state of mind.
Bill Crawford
With everything that you can imagine at our fingertips, many of the social interactions that help tie people together in a community have faded away. Are communities traditionally built on relationships, trust and familiarity a thing of the past?
Dean Ornish
The U.S. – E.U. economic relationship dwarfs America’s economic ties with China.
John Bruton
People of conscience need to break their ties with corporations financing the injustice of climate change.
Desmond Tutu
The bonds that unite another person to our self exist only in our mind.
Marcel Proust
With Jack Abramoff under indictment, a number of readers have suggested that now he might flip and try to offer the feds some figures higher up the food-chain.
Josh Marshall
I told my dentist my teeth are going yellow. he told me to wear a brown tie.
Rodney Dangerfield
In America, a metrical poem is likely to conjure up the idea of the sort of poet who wears ties and lunches at the faculty club. In Russia it suggests the moral force of an art practiced against the greatest personal odds, as a discipline, solitary and intense.
Joseph Brodsky
By [the] operations [of public improvement] new channels of communication will be opened between the States; the lines of separation will disappear, their interests will be identified, and their union cemented by new and indissoluble ties.
Thomas Jefferson
Bob Dylan tends not to have geographical or chronological markers that tie a song to any specific context, so they stay alive, stay relevant.
Richard F. Thomas
It’s actually four, because the fifth state they get the advantage with a tie. It’s literally four states out of 50, 57 if you’re [Barack] Obama.
Rush Limbaugh
I like that: a little pressure on the understood boundaries of yourself. Sounded like something out of a self-awareness class, probably with yoga. See what kind of a pretzel you can tie yourself into and press on the understood… I was raving, if only to myself.
Robin McKinley
We are bound together by the most powerful of all ties, our fervent love for freedom and independence, which knows no homeland but the human heart.
Gerald R. Ford
These are important markers in our engagement with South East Asia, in enhancing our strategic ties with ASEAN across 3 Cs. These 3 Cs are commerce, connectivity, and culture.
Sushma Swaraj
Technically, Japan and South Korea normalized their diplomatic ties 50 years ago, but this wasn’t included in the Normalization Treaty because forced prostitution, coerced sex just was taboo to even talk about.
Elise Hu
I was very attracted to the way that Zen did not go into the imagination land. And now I’ve forgotten what your first question was and how we were going to tie this together.
Brad Warner
I used to tell young preachers, in order to preach you’ve got to have the power of God on your life. Now I tell them, in order to tie your shoes you’ve got to have the power of God on your life.
Paul Washer
Sooner or later we’ve got to tie the saving of the natural world to our own public welfare.
Jim Fowler
And the meek shall inherit the earth.
Geddy Lee
Presumably there is indeed no purpose in the ultimate fate of the cosmos, but do any of us really tie our life’s hopes to the ultimate fate of the cosmos anyway? Of course we don’t; not if we are sane. Our lives are ruled by all sorts of closer, warmer, human ambitions and perceptions.
Richard Dawkins
A difference in self loathing? Please. The only difference between a gun and a rope is the time it takes to tie the knot.
Justine Larbalestier
I could’ve died because you had to tie your shoelace?
Derek Landy
I’ve been back to the Kansas City area a lot in the past. My sisters went to college in the area. My brother went to college in the area. I’ve got friends there, so there’s some ties to the area.
Ben Zobrist
Our civilisation has lost this bond between times, and tends to measure time with a yardstick, bit by bit, from one point to another.
Lennart Meri
Austin sounds a little bit like Aston Martin, which is the type of car James Bond would drive.
Mike Myers
Habit is not mere subjugation, it is a tender tie; when one remembers habit it seems to have been happiness.
Elizabeth Bowen
Thoughtfulness is like a glue that hold a married couple together. Be creative and consistent in finding thoughtful ways to show your spouse that you love them and they are always on your mind.
Dave Willis
I write what I want to write. Period. I don’t write novels-for-hire using media tie-in characters, I don’t write suspense novels or thrillers. I write horror. And if no one wants to buy my books, I’ll just keep writing them until they do sell–and get a job at Taco Bell in the meantime.
Bentley Little
Rules and responsibilities: these are the ties that bind us. We do what we do, because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves. I will do what I have to do. And I will do what I must.
Neil Gaiman
[Donald] Trump continues to dismiss those concerns though, even as some Republicans, like Lindsay Graham, are making the case that Trump`s business ties deserve the scrutiny.
Chuck Todd
I’d rather feel empathy for a character that’s fictional, so it doesn’t quite tie into personal experience as much.
Henry Cavill
Your socks should match your tie
David G. Hartwell
There is, nevertheless, a certain respect and a general duty of humanity that ties us, not only to beasts that have life and sense, but even to trees and plants.
Michel de Montaigne
New ties between Russia and Japan would mark not only a breakthrough in their relations but also a significant shift in Northeast Asia’s political dynamic.
Fiona Hill
I worry that there are financial ties between the Trumps and the Saudi royal family.
Chris Murphy
Family dinner. Seven-thirty sharp. Tie optional. Straight-jacker required.
Alyson Noel
Never, never, never should the pocket square be of the same pattern as your ties. You are not ‘Reverend Ike.’
Roger Stone
When you tie [Donald] Trump supporters to those groups [the American Nazi party and the KKK ] that is a slur.
Tucker Carlson
You might be a redneck if you have a color coordinating rope that ties down your car hood.
Jeff Foxworthy
God, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours.
David Livingstone
Rescue the drowning and tie your shoestrings.
Henry David Thoreau
Because of my voice, speaking words which had been carefully chosen, women had used money they had set aside for other purposes to buy war bonds.
Kate Smith
Like Love, Art ties together all the great sacred traditions because they all used creative expression, or we wouldn’t know about them.
Alex Grey
Had I been more responsible I might have made something of myself as a junk bond trader, long-haul trucker or perhaps a plumbing contractor.
Brock Yates
The Spirit of man is like a kite, which rises by means of those very forces which seem to oppose its rise; the tie that joins it to the earth, the opposing winds of temptation, and the weight of earth-born affections which it carries with it into the sky.
Coventry Patmore
Our ties are deep and long-standing. We are dependent on each other. And no matter what the issue of the day, whether it be softwood lumber, whether it be a war in Iraq, we need to continue to work together.
Paul Cellucci
A dog will recognize his master in whatever way he dresses. The master may dress in robes, suit and tie, or stand naked, but the dog will always recognize his master. If we cannot recognize God, our beloved master, when he comes in a different dress from another religion, then we are less than that dog.
Radhanath Swami
The space industry is developing and delivering benefits that tie into our immediate needs and priorities here on Earth-for example, medical and materials research, and satellite communications.
Marc Garneau
But the life that no longer trust another human being and no longer forms ties to the political community is not a human life any longer.
Martha C. Nussbaum
You have to look at each tie and look at what your options are.
Jim Courier
There is nothing better than walking out and hitting a home run.
Barry Bonds
For we must be one thing or the other, an asset or a liability, the sinew in your wing to help you soar, or the chain to bind you to earth.
Countee Cullen
The other matter to which we beg leave to refer in candor has been the anxiety shown for the Constitution and civil liberВ­ties because of alleged dictatorial, impatient and vindictive tendencies on our part. This concern is without basis in fact.
Diosdado Macapagal
I don’t understand why James Bond has to be a man all the time. When Pierce Brosnan retires, why not one of us?
Sarah Michelle Gellar
I don’t wear ties to work. And I don’t shave.
Mark T Bertolini
Every pitcher can beat you, it doesn’t matter how good you are.
Barry Bonds
Abandon benevolence, discard duty, and people will return to the family ties.
When I’d go to Israel, I felt like a tourist. My social and professional ties had started to dissolve, and it confused me. I didn’t know whether I should stay here in Paris or go back to Israel, or even cut off all my ties with Israel so I could really plant roots here. Or maybe go somewhere else altogether.
Yael Naim
What does tamed mean? It’s something that’s been too often neglected. It means to create ties.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I think, then, that man, after having satisfied his first longing for facts, wanted something fuller – some grouping, some adaptation to his capacity and experience, of the links of this vast chain of events which his sight could not take in.
Alfred de Vigny
My music is so often like a lullaby I write to myself to make sense of things I can’t tie together, or things I’ve lost, or things I’ll never have.
Stephan Jenkins
Mel is nuts. He puts on a suit and a tie and acts like a normal person so people think he’s okay. He’s definitely out in left field. He’s got the ambition of a boy.
Dom DeLuise
I hate The Police so much I’d probably assassinate Sting,
My System of a Down Rages Against the Machine.
Tie you up in a Slipknot and hold Alice In Chains inside her dreams.
Chino XL
Sexual fidelity is more important in a homosexual relationship than in any other. In other relationships there are a variety of ties. But here, fidelity is the only bond.
W. H. Auden
The most satisfactory thing in all this earthly life is to be able to serve our fellow-beings-first, those who are bound to us by ties of love, then the wider circle of fellow-townsmen, fellow-countrymen, or fellow-men. To be of service is a solid foundation for contentment in this world.
Charles William Eliot
The infinite variety in the properties of the solid materials we find in the world is really the expression of the infinite variety of the ways in which the atoms and molecules can be tied together, and of the strength of those ties.
William Henry Bragg
The suit-and-tie job is very nice, but it’s not really who I am in my heart.
Boris Becker
I don’t suppose I can wear the flamingo tie,” he said as he pulled on black socks. “It’s a bit festive, given the occasion,” I responded. “Can’t wear it to the opera,” said the Colonel, almost smiling. “Can’t wear it to a funeral. Can’t use it to hang myself. It’s a bit useless, as ties go.” I gave him a tie.
John Green
James Bond is quite serious about his drinks and clothing and cigarettes and food and all that sort of thing. There is nothing wry or amused about James Bond.
Ken Follett
Religion is the tie that binds one to one’s Creator, and whilst the body perishes, as it has to, religion persists even after death.
Mahatma Gandhi
This is our true tie,” he whispered, his breath falling hotly onto my lips. “You’re meant for me, and I will have you.
Jeaniene Frost
British people still wear clothes. By clothes I mean actual clothes: jackets and shirts and ties and suits. The spirit of Beau Brummell is still visible. English men make an effort. We’ve lost that in the US. Everyone is more concerned with being comfortable.
Tom Ford
I think that artists and musicians can do as much harm as good for causes if they tie their names to lots of things, especially if they aren’t really doing much to meaningfully push their causes forward.
Damian Kulash
It is only reasonable that our laws do not force our country to provide safe harbor to those individuals that are being sought out by their governments due to their terrorist ties.
Bill Shuster
He loves his bonds who, when the first are broke, Submits his neck into a second yoke.
Robert Herrick
Disbelief in futurity loosens in a great measure the ties of morality, and may be for that reason pernicious to the peace of civil society.
David Hume
My father, Ronald Reagan, held the presidency in such honor and reverence that he was never in the Oval Office without a coat and tie. Bill Clinton has such disrespect for the presidency that he was often in the Oval Office without his pants. Behold the leader of ‘the most ethical administration in history’.
Michael Reagan
The more ties you wear, the higher rank you are.
Vermin Supreme
When you walk around the property, everything ties up together and looks good. That is the main goal as a designer.
Sussanne Khan
God’s children are God’s children anywhere and everywhere, and shall be even unto the end. Nothing can sever that sacred tie, or divide us from his heart.
Charles Spurgeon
I can change. I can live out of my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past
Stephen Covey
San Diego is living proof that a healthy economy, low unemployment rate and strong international ties are not mutually exclusive.
Kevin Faulconer
In the next couple of years, part of every film’s process is going to be to adjust the images. And it’ll be to change the color of an actor’s tie or change the little smirky thing he’s doing with his mouth. Or you can put in more clouds or move the tree a little bit.
Robert Zemeckis
I have nothing to say of my working life, only that a tie is a noose, and inverted though it is, it will hang a man nonetheless if he’s not careful.
Yann Martel
I do have a blurred memory of sitting on the stairs and trying over and over again to tie one of my shoelaces, but that is all that comes back to me of school itself.
Roald Dahl
Just take them rascals [rapists, killers, child abusers] out in the swamp / Put ’em on their knees and tie ’em to a stump / Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest.
Charlie Daniels
One single gift acknowledged in gratefulness has the power to dissolve the ties of our alienation.
David Steindl-Rast
In truth, every American administration since that of Franklin D. Roosevelt has maintained close ties with the Saudi rulers, and for a single, simple reason: oil.
Michael Mandelbaum
The bond with a dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth can ever be.
Konrad Lorenz
But there is scant evidence to tie Saddam to terrorist organizations, and even less to the Sept. 11 attacks.
Brent Scowcroft
I went to an all-boys Catholic school, and not only were we not allowed to wear pajamas, we had to wear dress shirts, dress pants, a tie, dress shoes… they stopped making us wear blazers, like, two years before I started there, so pajamas… you wouldn’t even get in the front door wearing pajamas at my school.
John C. Reilly
All my heroes wore coats and ties to work. What happened to men wearing hats? Maybe I should bring back hats.
Aaron Sorkin
I hate wearing suits and ties.
Rob Delaney
You’re never happy with a tie you’re trying to win. The reality is we have to come back and play tomorrow, and whatever the outcome tomorrow is, we have to come back and play again.
Walt Kyle
I have always done my bit to improve Indo-Pak ties, but sometimes you say something, and it is interpreted the other way.
Shahid Afridi
It’s my job, it’s my role, it’s my mission, it’s my dream to have everyone who has Michigan ties – whether you went to college in Michigan, whether you grew up in Michigan, if you’ve ever heard of the state of Michigan – to do what you can to influence the students of the Detroit metropolitan area.
Jalen Rose
I refused then like I do now to let anybody tie me down
Ray LaMontagne
It was my mustache that landed jobs for me. In those silent-film days it was the mark of a villain. When I realized they had me pegged as a foreign nobleman type I began to live the part, too. I bought a pair of white spats, an ascot tie and a walking stick.
Adolphe Menjou
I always get jealous when I’m in London because the men are so well put together. They wear suits with shoes and ties that have splashes of colour here and there.
Paul Wesley
Well, it’s a tie and jacket and I just don’t travel with one, … You’re not going to put a coat and tie on me for dinner. I’m just being honest. Plus, the wives can’t go and I’d rather see the wives be able to go instead of just all the guys. That makes it fun.
John Daly
I will not let a political party tell me how to live, when to die or what to believe in. Our souls are linked to the universe, but we can never see heaven, because our flesh ties us to the earth and the people around us. But when the people around you have lost their will to be free, then earth becomes a hell.
Ma Jian
No matter what she did with her hair it took about three minutes for it to tangle itself up again, like a garden hosepipe in a shed [Which, no matter how carefully coiled, will always uncoil overnight and tie the lawnmower to the bicycles].
Terry Pratchett
It is obvious to any observer that in every western country the increase of importance of public schools has been at least coincident with the relaxation of older family ties.
John Dewey
She wanted to lose herself in him. To tie his arms around her like a tourniquet. If she showed him how much she needed him, he’d run away.
Rainbow Rowell
The fact that everybody in the world dreams every night ties all mankind together.
Jack Kerouac
There should be no cricket and Bollywood ties with Pakistan till Pakistan stops cross-border terrorism.
Gautam Gambhir
Life isn’t like a Full House episode. There isn’t going to be an easy out to every conflict. There is no milkman, paperboy, or evening TV. There are good moments and bad moments and not everything will tie together nicely in the end. But that’s life, and I think I’m finally starting to get it.
Jodi Sweetin
Always underdress. The goal is not to look as if you made an effort for the particular event. If you can dress for a different party (i.e., wear black tie to a cocktail party, or tennis clothes for lunch), so much the better. You give the impression of being much in demand.
Lisa Birnbach
Even the greatest idea can become meaningless in the rush to judgement. To gauge an idea as feasible we must cut our ties to the status quo and find the balance between constructive criticism and judgment. Within that balance we will uncover crucial input for making our ideas a reality.
Shigeo Shingo
Before the Beatles, America was musically a very conservative country. You can see film footage of people at a baseball game, they all had hats and ties on, and the women were dressed up like they were going to church. That was the America that I started getting interested in musically.
Don McLean
Even now, I’m very superstitious, in silly ways. I always put my left boot on first. Or on set, I always tie my bow tie from right to left.
Matt Smith
A few years ago, I bought an old red bicycle with the words Free Spirit written across its side – which is exactly what I felt like when I rode it down the street in a tie-dyed dress.
Drew Barrymore
The fundamental point in fabricating a chain reacting machine is of course to see to it that each fission produces a certain number of neutrons and some of these neutrons will again produce fission.
Enrico Fermi
Turkey knows the importance of its ties with Israel; it knows it’s in the same moderate camp with Israel, the moderate Palestinians and other Muslim countries, and the threat to Turkey is not from us.
Tzipi Livni
The ties of blood,” said Spider, “are stronger than water.” Water’s not strong,” objected Fat Charlie.
Neil Gaiman
I’m not a fan of religion. Religion ties people up and binds them and puts them back in chains but faith – true relationship – releases us to be all what God ever intended us to be. That’s what I’m interested in.
Kathie Lee Gifford
I believe in literature which ties people together, that highlights what people have in common, despite the differences – color, sexual orientation, or anything which may separate us on the surface.
Olga Tokarczuk
Our nations are so close yet such a visit took 17 years. This will change & we will strengthen India-Nepal ties.
Narendra Modi
When I was younger and women first started to get in public positions, in my case the law, we went through a period where we wore those little ribbon ties, little bows. We tried to figure out what was our appropriate dress.
Hillary Clinton
The main thing in a cup tie is to get through.
Walter Smith
My wife and I had an argument last week that was so stupid, that it bears repeating. My wife collects twist ties…welcome to my world.
Bill Engvall
Trust in Allah, but tie up your camel.’ Sign in Skardu
Greg Mortenson
In the same way that men wear ties to add personality to their clothing, so too should women wear their accessories.
Kate Spade
There is something fearfully strengthening about cutting free even if the ties bandage the heart itself.
Agnes de Mille
There is a certain oddity to Larry Fink having problems in Washington. He is a strong Democrat who has close ties to President Obama and has often been rumored as set to take a big administration job, such as Secretary of the Treasury.
Carol Loomis
The first thing I bought that was really stylish was in 1969 when I was eleven. I saved up for a black, grey and white tie-dye grandad vest. It was too big – they weren’t catering for kids my age – and hung off me, but I loved it.
Paul Weller
I feel a strong relationship with God and I feel my ties are with him. That’s how I honestly feel.
Lana Del Rey
Life wanted faces that would express what we wanted to tell. Not just the unusual or striking face, but the face that would speak out the message from the printed page. I am always looking for some typical person or face that will tie the picture essay together in a human way.
Margaret Bourke-White
You ache with loneliness one night so much you weep and I say ‘here is a rope tie it around me Hafiz will be your companion for life’.
And I wonder, among all the tangles of this mortal coil, which one contains tighter knots to undo, & consequently suggests more tugging, & pain, & diversified elements of misery, than the marriage tie.
Edith Wharton
Funny how we take it for granted that we know all there is to know about another person, just because we see them frequently or because of some strong emotional tie.
Robert Bloch
The secret of the world is the tie between person and event. Person makes event and event person.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Even though you tie a hundred knots, the string remains one.
Never take advice from anyone in a tie. They’ll bankrupt you. Don’t ask a general for advice on war, and don’t ask a broker for advice on money.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
It will free man from the remaining chains, the chains of gravity which still tie him to this planet.
Wernher von Braun
The work I prefer to do are the smaller budget pictures, television can be great but it ties you up for quite a long time.
Jeremy Irons
I know of no realm of life that can provide more companionship in a lonely world or greater feelings of security and purpose in chaotic times than the close ties of a family.
Charles R. Swindoll
True love’s the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven.
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie,
Which heart to heart, and mind to mind,
In body and in soul can bind.
Walter Scott
I know exactly what I want to buy and I spend very little time, maybe 15 hours a year, buying stuff. I’ll go in and out of Dunhill in 45 minutes and pick out a few suits. Boom. And I’m gone. I get my shirts at Charvet. I go in there – woosh – and buy 12 shirts and some ties; once a year and that’s it.
Edward N. Ney
The actual, the forming of ties with a group of people around you where they help you grow as a professional, solve problems, get opportunities, and you help them, is actually the constitutive base of the foundation of a strong, modern career.
Reid Hoffman
The increasing remoteness of consanguinity is everyday diminishing the force of the family compact between France and Spain. And politicians have ever with great reason considered the ties of blood as feeble and precarious links of political connection.
Alexander Hamilton
Ronald Reagan, when he was campaigning for President, said that he would break relations with Communist China and re-establish diplomatic relations with Taiwan. But when he got into office, he pursued a very different policy of engagement with China and of increasing trade and business ties with China.
Rebecca MacKinnon
I’ve always been fascinated with the strong emotional ties that music can have. A song can bring you back to a place or a season of life like no other art form can.
Jon Foreman
Our lives are bound by physical limits, familial ties, political conditions, and geographical restrictions. Individual freedom takes us beyond them all.
Ai Weiwei
The people who illegally cross into the country are from countries that have very close ties to al Qaeda, whether it’s Yemen or Afghanistan, Pakistan, China. It is an absolute national disgrace.
Rick Perry
…love is the sum of our choices, the strength of our commitments, the ties that bind us together.
Emily Giffin
Democracy is no solution – it’s just 51% bossing the other 49% around. For God’s sake, Hitler was democratically elected! Democracy is just mob rule dressed up in a coat and tie.
Doug Casey
It is interesting that [James Comey] is not doing investigations about the possible – possible ties between [Donald] Trump’s campaign and the Russians.
John Lewis
The secret of happiness lies in the mind’s release from worldly ties.
Gautama Buddha
The harmony of the nation is promoted and the whole Union is knit together by the sentiments of mutual respect, the habits of social intercourse, and the ties of personal friendship formed between the representatives of its several parts in the performance of their service at this metropolis.
John Quincy Adams
The question is… How did a girl like Annabelle manage to talk a man like you into joining our silly little family party?” Annabelle smiled sweetly. “I promised he could tie me up afterward and spank me.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
In the intermission, between group one and group two, you go to your dressing-room and change every stitch you have on you: underwear, shirt, tie, socks, pants and tails. Your other clothes are soaking wet.
George Antheil
The word “religion” beautifully defines itself, of course. It translates “to bind” from the Latin–“re” means back and “ligare” means to tie up. All religions are straightjackets, jackets for the straight.
Timothy Leary
Nationalism is the love which ties me to the blockheads of my country, to the insultors of my way of life, and to the desecrators of my language.
Karl Kraus
Americas largest trade deficit is with China, a nation that enjoys Permanent Normal Trade Relations with the U.S. and ties its currency to the dollar to make it a more competitive trading partner.
Jo Ann Emerson
The ties that bind us to life are tougher than you imagine, or than any one can who has not felt how roughly they may be pulled without breaking.
Anne Bronte
We’ll build new ties of trade and of commerce, culture and education that unleash the potential of the Iraqi people.
Barack Obama
I did not have a van, or wear Birkenstocks and tie-dyes.
Rachel Zoe
Guys are lucky: We can wear a suit over and over, just with different shirts and ties.
Ryan Reynolds
A great poet has seldom sung of lawfully wedded happiness, but of free and secret love; and in this respect, too the time is coming when there will no longer be one standard of morality for poetry and another for life. To anyone tender of conscience, the ties formed by a free connection are stronger than the legal ones.
Ellen Key
We have new developing ties with Japan whom always supports our democratic process and economic development.
Ali Abdullah Saleh
Three more saves and he ties John the Baptist.
Hank Greenwald
I double-knot my shoe laces. It’s a pain untying your shoes afterward-particularly if you get them wet-but so is stopping in the middle of a race to tie them.
Hal Higdon
In personal life, the warm glow of nostalgia amplifies good memories and minimizes bad ones about experiences and relationships, encouraging us to revisit and renew our ties with friends and family. It always involves a little harmless self-deception, like forgetting the pain of childbirth.
Stephanie Coontz
My father grew up with no money. He was raised in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the U.S. My mother helped him sew labels into his ties. My life has been very comfortable, sure, but they instilled into us the importance of the work ethic.
David Lauren
We were equals once when we lay new-born babes on our nurse’s knees. We will be equal again when they tie up our jaws for the last sleep.
Olive Schreiner
Dieting is our last tie with asceticism.
Mason Cooley
Ties were always my thing. When I was 18, on Sunday, when everyone was taking off for a casual day, I’d wear a suit to go have brunch.
Albert Hammond, Jr.
India should not have any ties with Pakistan, be it Bollywood or cricket. I am shocked that Bollywood is saying that cricket and movies should be kept ahead of national sentiments.
Gautam Gambhir
Trudeau’s obsession with China should not come as a surprise. For decades, many Canadian corporate and financial insiders were espousing deeper and closer ties with China at all costs.
Erin O’Toole
Junk bonds prove there’s nothing magical in a Aaa bond rating.
Merton Miller
The positive emotions that arise in…unpromising circumstances demonstrate that social ties and meaningful work are deeply desired, readily improvised, and intensely rewarding. The very structure of our economy and society prevent these goals from being achieved.
Rebecca Solnit
Political parties depend for existence and success, not so much on the holding of identical views, as on a shared philosophy and ties of loyalty and respect between members. So there are good reasons to try to find compromises when differences emerge on a specific matter.
Dominic Grieve
Clambering up the Cold Mountain path, The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on: The long gorge choked with scree and boulders, The wide creek, the mist-blurred grass. The moss is slippery, though there’s been no rain The pine sings, but there’s no wind. Who can leap the world’s ties And sit with me among the white clouds?
Gary Snyder
I should tie myself to no particular system of society other than of socialism.
Nelson Mandela
I never learned how to tie my shoes, and I was mocked for that. I still don’t know how to.
Hari Kondabolu
One of the things I’ve always loved about queer culture is the openness and passionate curiosity about love, desire and the myriad forms of affectionate ties.
Stacey D’Erasmo
For me, wearing a tie is a pleasure, a recherche one but a pleasure nonetheless. You could say that I’m avoiding tie avoidance. My own gorgeous collection runs into hundreds and I buy them the way I buy books – I simply can’t pass a shop. I have loved them since I could spend my own money on them.
Peter York
Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?
Alexis de Tocqueville
Justice and truth are the common ties of society
John Locke
Just as people have long believed that strengthening ties of trade improves the prospects for peace and the free exchange of ideas, Facebook friendships or Twitter followings already transcend national borders.
Douglas Alexander
I was born to hit a baseball. I can hit a baseball.
Barry Bonds
Every year, millions of people from Iran and Iraq travel to each other’s countries, and we also have marriages between Iraqis and Iranians. Many Iranians were born in Iraq, and many Iraqis were born in Iran. This is a kind of special, cordial amicable ties.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
If you take a bale of hay and tie it to the tail of a mule and then strike a match and set the bale of hay on fire, and if you then compare the energy expended shortly thereafter by the mule with the energy expended by yourself in the striking of the match, you will understand the concept of amplification.
William Shockley
Obviously the highest pressure scene, I guess it might’ve been a tie – what was the bigger death, Tyrion with Shae, Tyrion wth Twyin, and then Joffrey were all scenes where I wanted to deliver what was in the script married to what fans will be expecting, and it was a lot of pressure and I’m really glad it’s over.
Alex Graves
What does the artist do? He draws connections. He ties the invisible threads between things. He dives into history, be it the history of mankind, the geological history of the Earth or the beginning and end of the manifest cosmos.
Anselm Kiefer
Hale looked at Macey, who added, “Seven minutes since shots fired.” “Kat what’s the emergency response tie in Midtown Manhattan?” “Not long enough if they want a clean exit,” she told him. Macey hadn’t heard Kat’s words, but she looked at Hale like she’d read his mind.
Ally Carter
Hope is an echo, hope ties itself yonder, yonder.
Carl Sandburg
If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing you grandmother with her teeth out.
George Brett
But that’s not enough: To maintain energy security, one needs a supply system that provides a buffer against shocks. It needs large, flexible markets. And it’s important to acknowledge the fact that the entire energy supply chain needs to be protected.
Daniel Yergin
I rarely saw people sitting at computers producing real code wearing ties.
Philippe Kahn
The stockbrokers, their hair isn’t long and full of leaves and stuff like that, so they don’t catch your eye. They’re wearing the tie-dye, so they don’t stick out, but you don’t see them. The ones you see are the ones with the leaves in their hair, the matted hair and all that kind of stuff.
Bob Weir
The only good thing about fame that I’ve gotten is I’ve gotten out of a couple of speeding tickets. I’ve gotten into a restaurant when I didn’t have a suit and tie on. That’s really about it.
Bill Murray
All the principles of heaven and earth are living inside you.
Morihei Ueshiba
I’m a promoter of the people for the people and by the people and my magic lies in my people ties. I’m a promoter of America. I’m American people. You know what I mean? So therefore, uh, do not send for who the bell tolls ’cause the bell tolls for thee.
Don King
I wear white or pale-blue shirts and black knit ties: They don’t draw attention to me in any kind of peacockish way.
Charlie Siem
I have drawn a very close bond to all the military people.
Toby Keith
A commuter tie-up consists of you — and people who for some reason won’t use public transit.
Robert Breault
Supply chains cannot tolerate even 24 hours of disruption. So if you lose your place in the supply chain because of wild behavior you could lose a lot. It would be like pouring cement down one of your oil wells.
Thomas Friedman
It’s extreme. The character comes back from the dead, and, at first he doesn’t know where he is, how he got there…. How does that tie in with the physicality? I just didn’t think he should be too healthy-looking, so I lost some weight for the role.
Brandon Lee
I am an organization freak. I am such a freak that in my closet, shoes, belts, ties – everything is color-coded and organized that way. Not a shoelace is out of place.
Drew Scott
Love is a chain of love as nature is a chain of life.
Truman Capote
I closed my eyes and listened carefully for the descendants of Sputnik, even now circling the earth, gravity their only tie to the planet. Lonely metal souls in the unimpeded darkness of space, they meet, pass each other, and part, never to meet again. No words passing between them. No promises to keep.
Haruki Murakami
I love jokes that come out of nowhere. The ones where people look at the screen and go, What the Hell was that. As long as it somehow ties back into the story, somehow.
Allen Covert
You expect a basketball player to come with a white button-down, Balmain jeans, and Balenciagas. You expect that. But when I come with an extended button-down, camos, no socks, Louboutins that have spikes on them, and a bow tie with diamonds, you’ll be like, “What? Who dressed him?”
Iman Shumpert
You know, back when I was a kid who wanted to be in show business, everybody on TV wore nice clothes. They were very glamorous when they would be on the ‘Tonight Show.’ All the dudes wore suits and ties and that just seemed like real show business to me.
Paul F. Tompkins
It was my friend Frank, a writer in San Francisco, who finally set me straight. When asked about my new look he put down his fork and stared at me for a few moments. “A bow tie announces to the world you can no longer get an erection.”
David Sedaris
Once that was over, I knew that my ties to a football organization would be over because I never wanted to coach or be in the front office.
Franco Harris
You only have to glance at the daily news to see how passions are stirred by claims of exclusive loyalty to one’s own kin, one’s own clan, one’s own country, and one’s own church. These ties that bind are vital to our communities and our lives, but they can also be twisted into a noose.
Bill Moyers
The rest of the world needs the US economy and financial system to recover in order for it to revive. We remain at the center of global economic activity with financial and trade ties to every region of the globe.
Timothy Geithner
No might nor greatness in mortality Can censure ‘scape; back- wounding calumny The whitest virtue strikes. What king so strong Can tie the gall up in the slanderous tongue?
William Shakespeare
If the great Government of the United States were a private corporation no bank would take its name on a piece of paper, because it has cynically repudiated the words engraved upon its bonds.
Garet Garrett
The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.
Konrad Lorenz
Monofilament is what you use to go fishing. The line on your fishing rod is probably going to be black. You get to the end of the line and you tie on this clear plastic, thin thread called monofilament.
John Badham
I began to be impressed by what made a good book-how you needed to have a sensible story, a plot that developed, with a beginning, a middle, and an end that would tie everything together.
Dorothy Fields
Whenever I go to work I wear a jacket and a tie, because I’m inherently quite lazy, and my books take so long to do, and my publishers don’t bug me, so it’s so easy to fool yourself into thinking you’re working harder than you really are.
Robert Caro
My relationship with Moratti goes beyond the normal ties between a president and a captain. I was an unknown and he believed in me. It’s something that I will never forget. Indeed, I will always thank him for that.
Javier Zanetti
When I got ‘Family Ties’, I wasn’t even thinking about being an actress. I thought I might become a window dresser.
Justine Bateman
Friendship, of itself a holy tie, is made more sacred by adversity.
Charles Caleb Colton
I’m not afraid to be lonely at the top.
Barry Bonds
There’s an undeniable tradition of sexism in this country that ties into the move westward by people of European descent and different ways of looking at Manifest Destiny on the west side of the Mississippi River.
Tommy Lee Jones
I am not a yachting person, by nature, but I have just enough experience on the sea under sail to feel a certain nostalgia for it when I see a big white racing yacht heeled over at cruising speed on the ocean, and I can still tie a mean bowline knot on just about anything in less than 10 seconds.
Hunter S. Thompson
A careless shoe string, in whose tie I see a wilde civility.
Robert Herrick
Via the squares on the chessboard, the Indians explain the movement of time and the age, the higher influences which control the world and the ties which link Chess with the human soul
We celebrate the birth of one who told us to give everything to the poor
by giving each other motorized tie racks.
Bill McKibben
Things don’t always tie up in a nice bow. Even when you make strides with people and relationships, it’s complicated.
Aaron Tveit
Where the electron behaves and misbehaves as it will, where the forces tie themselves up into knots of atoms and come united.
D. H. Lawrence
I don’t want to be a Major League coach.
Barry Bonds
Black women sharing close ties with each other, politically or emotionally, are not the enemies of Black men.
Audre Lorde
Not too long ago, my opponent made a prediction. He said I would probably win Pennsylvania, he would win North Carolina, and Indiana would be the tiebreaker. Well, tonight we’ve come from behind, we’ve broken the tie, and, thanks to you, it’s full speed on to the White House.
Hillary Clinton
Traditional investment vehicles such as IRAs, CDs, stocks and bonds do have their place, but for the rich, they are used more as temporary storage facilities rather than life-long homes.
Robert Foster Bennett
I don’t get back as much as I’d like to, so I don’t have a lot of close ties [Pittsburgh], but I’ll bleed black and gold until I die.
Anthony Jeselnik
[Photography] ties back into this feeling of wanting to watch things fall and the moment before they break. Fireworks are that way for me – this lovely thing that blows up and is gone. It all goes back to this desire to record things before they disappear – the original reason we take pictures, right?
Laurel Nakadate
You think that the heads of state only have serious conversations, but they actually often begin really with the weather or, ‘I really like your tie.’
Madeleine Albright
Later I would come to believe that erotic ties were all a spell, a temporary psychosis, even a kind of violence, or at least they coexisted with these states.
Lorrie Moore
All the people at university were very aristocratic – except me, because I was on scholarship. And everyone there voluntarily wore suits and ties every day. And this was in the ’60s!
Genesis P-Orridge
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; when man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
Anna Letitia Barbauld
Tourism is a very big economic benefit to the Sherpa people, and also, they have very strong ties to their own social attitudes and their own religion, so fortunately, they’re not too influenced by many of our Western attitudes.
Edmund Hillary
There are certain parts of chords that resolve things and tie a bow, and others that keep things open and unanswered.
At the age of twenty six I am in the condition of an aged person – all my old friends are gone… & my heart fails when I think by how few ties I hold to the world.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
That’s a nice tie… Do you have any knickers in that material?
Prince Philip
Life is very difficult. It seems right to me sometimes that we should follow our strongest feelings; but then such feelings continually come across the ties that all our former life has made for us,–the ties that have made others dependent on us,–and would cut them in two.
George Eliot
Wearing a scrap of colored cloth around your neck, even though it serves no useful purpose, but which answers to the name of “tie.”
Paulo Coelho
A gentleman can never have too many bow ties.
Justin Timberlake
Often dismissed or underestimated by political opponents, President Reagan had the most valuable weapon in the political arsenal: a bond with the people.
Bill Jenkins
Family jokes, though rightly cursed by strangers, are the bond that keeps most families alive.
Stella Benson
The modern world is a meritocracy where you earn your own luck, old school ties count for nothing, and inherited privilege can even lose a guy a clear parliamentary majority.
Kate Reardon
I think that food ties us to our community and our traditions, and it’s the thing that makes us feel good and connected.
Kathy Freston
I had to, … Tie my suit up, tie my tie and just get downstairs to my car as fast as I could, so nobody could see me.
Nate Robinson
As the novelty of wearable tech gives way to necessity – and, later, as wearable tech becomes embedded tech – will we be deprived of the chance to pause, reflect, and engage in meaningful, substantive conversations? How will our inner lives and ties to those around us change?
Klaus Schwab
I like stories. I like to figure out how history ties to the present.
Jim Nantz
There’s a friendly tie of some sort between music and eating.
Thomas Hardy
What an enthusiastic devotion is that which sends a man from the attractions of home, the ties of neighbourhood, the bonds of country, to range plains, valleys, hills, mountains, for a new flower.
Dorothea Dix
When you go to a Japense wedding, make sure that you tie the ribbon on the present tightly because if you don’t, you may imply that you don’t think the marriage will last.
Kabir Sehgal
Masonry superadds to our other obligations the strongest ties of connection between it and the cultivation of virtue, and furnishes the most powerful incentives to goodness.
Joseph Fort Newton
Reconciliation is what takes place, of course, at higher levels. President Karzai has been very clear about the red lines for reconciliation, accept the constitution, lay down their weapons, cut their ties with al Qaeda and essentially become productive or at least participating members of society in that regard.
David Petraeus
​To go where you’re wishing you could go, first you must tie your shoes and step off the porch.
John Avery
I’ve lived all my life in the U.S., but to be brutally honest, I don’t really have any ties to the country apart from my mum and dad. Most of the rest of my family live in the Stockport area, and I’ve always related more to that side of my background.
Karen Bardsley
Today, credit rating agencies rate companies, countries and bonds.
Mike Fitzpatrick
I tend to take [ to Bridget Jones Diaries] something that nearly happened, or might have happened, and then exaggerate it to make it funny and to make it tie into the themes.
Helen Fielding
After I had this idea to be Bill Nye the Science Guy, I wore straight ties the first couple times, and then I got this thing going and I started wearing bow ties.
Bill Nye
The ties of virtue ought to be closer than the ties of blood, since the good man is closer to another good man by their similarity of morals than the son is to his father by their similarity of face.
Madeleine de Souvre, marquise de Sable
I personally don’t think that blood ties should be something that signifies so much more than anything else. I understand perfectly when somebody leaves their family for good.
Luca Guadagnino
All knots that lovers tie Are tied to sever. Here shall your sweetheart lie, Untrue for ever.
A. E. Housman
It’s very easy to confuse Sean Connery with James Bond. Sometimes in the entertainment industry, people believe the cake is more real than the baker.
Judd Nelson
Elective office and public service are obviously something that have long ties with my family, and something I’m definitely interested in.
Joe Kennedy III
I believe that one becomes stronger emotionally by taking life less personally. If your employer criticizes your report, don’t take it personally. Instead, find out what’s needed and fix it. If your girlfriend laughs at your tie, don’t take it personally. Find another tie or find another girlfriend.
Marilyn vos Savant
Everything I know about the FBI came from movies! Right? The idea of these kind of uptight, conservative guys whose ties are tied too tight.
Leslie Hope
It’s no wonder that America’s engagement in the region has strong, sustained, bipartisan support. So I’ll be handing my successor a strong foundation – including closer ties with Singapore – on which to continue building, and I’m optimistic that will happen.
Barack Obama
John Barry was my hero when I was about 13. His scores to the James Bond movies were the scores of my life back then.
Carter Burwell
My idea of family is not dominated by blood ties. Families are fragile things, and I think it is social pressure and emotional attachments that keep them together.
Jeremy Hardy
No farmer-sportsman group is stronger than the ties of mutual confidence and enthusiasm which bind its members.
Aldo Leopold
We’re ganna we like to actually um, kidnap them in a van, and tie them up, and leave them somewhere dangerous…that’s the SUPRISE!
Gerard Way
Music is still the one thing that ties people together.
People can come together from all different religions,
walks of life, colours, creeds and enjoy the same song.
That’s still the most incredible thing to me about performing live.
Dave Gahan
Even I like to go to certain restaurants and places where you have to wear a jacket, a suit and a tie, and I like that sort of old world style. I am sure it will come back in many ways, if it hasn’t already. It’s kind of nice and it breaks it up.
Robert De Niro
If I get too comfortable, I will wake one morning and everything around me will have shifted overnight. All I knew? I know no longer. And all I had? Vanished in an instant.
Rebecca Lim
People often ask us what we get by our frequent travel to countries. I want to tell them we do not travel to have fun; we travel to build our relationship with other countries, and it is because of our ties with these countries that we were able to rescue 7,000 people from Yemen.
Sushma Swaraj
To those of you who are wearing ties, I think my dad would appreciate it if you took them off.
Robert Moog
The enactment of the Homestead Act would create the strongest tie between the citizen and the Government-he would with cheerfulness contribute his proportionable part of the taxes to defray the expenses of the political system under which he lived.
Andrew Johnson
While President Obama raised the hopes of Americans and Cubans alike with a forward-looking opening in diplomatic, commercial and people-to-people ties, President Trump is turning back the clock to a tragically failed Cold War mindset by reimposing restrictions on those activities.
Ben Rhodes
They want to be tied up, I tie them up. They want to be spanked, I spank them. They want to be called names, I call them names. But try and drink a little of their blood, and they scream like babies. What about my needs?
Christopher Moore
The U.S. should not continue to ignore Latin America. Our nation shares regional and cultural ties with these neighboring countries.
Mercedes Schlapp
It is sad to see a woman sacrificing the ties of the affections even to do good.
Maria Mitchell
It is time to change our policy of appeasement toward the Palestinians, to strengthen our ties with the nation of Israel.
Rick Perry
If you have a counterculture band, you put a name on it, you call them beatniks, and you can sell something – books or bebop. Or you label them as hippies and you can sell tie-dyed T-shirts.
Jim Jarmusch
People look at you differently if you wear a bow tie, as opposed to a necktie.
Dhani Jones
If I spray it on the seat, lady gonna tie a big knot in the meat.
Alice Cooper
I’m putting on a suit and tie when I go see The Great Gatsby.
J. B. Smoove
I love wearing bow ties for no particular reason.
Brad Goreski
The principle of subordination is the great bond of union and harmony through the universe.
Catharine Beecher
The pension system ties you to companies much longer in Japan.
Masayoshi Son
Pot is like a gang of Mexican bandits in your brain. They wait for thoughts to come down the road, then tie them up and thrash them.
Kevin Rooney
Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it. It would be a nightmare if we started to really think about it; it would tie our hands, it would tie everyone elses hands.
Rem Koolhaas
“So you’re a dom, huh? Nice.” I stabbed my pancakes again. “Kinky.” “You’re the one who ties people up, babe.”
Lilith Saintcrow
Macy’s has severed ties with Donald Trump and no longer will carry his men’s wear collection. From now on, men who want to look like Donald Trump will have to hunt and kill their own hair piece.
Conan O’Brien
There are situations where I’m uncomfortable saying, “I’m a hip-hop artist.” In some circles, the response is like, “Oh, OK, so… you have whores and your ties are shiny?”
Pharoahe Monch
If you’re going to hold someone down you’re going to have to hold on by the other end of the chain. You are confined by your own repression.
Toni Morrison
A China that trades extensively with the U.S. and its Asian neighbors will think twice before it pursues any policy that would place those relationships at risk. Likewise, trade between India and Pakistan could contribute to the normalization of ties between these long-estranged neighbors.
Richard N. Haass
They say a tie is like kissing your sister. I guess that is better than kissing your brother.
Lou Holtz
Parents and teachers alike are alarmed by this top-down approach to education that wrongly ties education money for states to the adoption of academic standards that do not fully reflect the values of South Carolina.
Jeff Duncan
I’m a Democrat because I want every American to have a fair shot at the American Dream. That’s what ties it all together for me, and in my experience, that means recognizing that no one is dealing with life one ‘issue’ at a time.
Jason Kander
Borg’s won Wimbledon four straight times and out there he has just lost an 18-16 tie breaker. You’d think maybe once he’d let up and say forget it. But oh, no way.
John McEnroe
You pray for good health and a body that will be strong in old age. Good-but your rich foods block the gods’ answer and tie Jupiter’s hands.
Aulus Persius Flaccus
The making of an American begins at the point where he himself rejects all other ties, any other history, and himself adopts the vesture of his adopted land.
James A. Baldwin
Black folks never bungie jump. That’s too much like lynching for us. I’m gonna let you tie a rope around me and push me off a bridge? You must be out your damn mind.
D. L. Hughley
For good reasons, there are no ties during the Stanley Cup season. Somebody needs to win so the lads can get out to their cottages on the lakes, where all hockey players spend their summers, or so I have been told.
George Vecsey
If the Chinese can’t buy U.S. products, they’ll buy them from European countries and then develop stronger economic ties with France and Germany and perhaps side more with those countries when international issues flare up.
Gary Locke
I have a dresser, who literally is a guy who makes sure the tie is right. It’s a little bit of a process. I could probably do it by myself, but it would take me three times as long.
Steve Buscemi
Nonfiction ties your hands a bit, and just like writing poetry in rhyme, it can force you to make more brutal decisions in terms of word choice, plot, etc.
Emily Susan Rapp
