There are a lot of people who call themselves teachers or leaders, but they're really just propagandists. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Abstruse speculations contain vertigo. ~ Victor Hugo
Abstruse Def quotes by Victor Hugo
I stretched my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass
The sun beat between my shoulders like carnival drums
I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings grow
So then I could really be fly
And then she arrived
Like day break inside a railway tunnel
Like the new moon, like a diamond in the mines
Like high noon to a drunkard, sudden
She made my heart beat in a now-now time signature
Her skinny canvas for ultraviolet brushstrokes
She was the sun's painting
She was a deep cognac color
Her eyes sparkled like lights along the new city
She lips pursed as if her breath was too sweet
And full for her mouth to hold
I said, "You are the beautiful, the stress of mathematics."
I said, "For you, I would peel open the clouds like new fruit
And give you lightning and thunder as a dowry
I would make the sky shed all of it's stars, light and rain
And I would clasp the constellations across your waist
And I would make the heavens your cape
And they would be pleased to cover you
They would be pleased to cover you
May I please, cover you, please ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
I don't care about what brand you are, I'm concerned what type of man you are, what your principles and standards are. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
I feel like being into the beat of your own drum has become too prominent in the culture. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
To me, it's like happiness is about happiness, but happiness is a fight. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Across from the famous jewelry store on Fifth Avenue at Fifty-Seventh Street, we sat in the back of a graffiti-covered white box truck watching the world go by on the surveillance vehicle's hidden high-def camera. So far there had been no sign of the thieves. Or even Audrey Hepburn. ~ James Patterson
Abstruse Def quotes by James Patterson
Books were cities I'd never visited, filled with pillars of great thoughts and streets of phrases, mazes of abstruse sentence structures and alleys of complicated syllables. They were stores that displayed a wide range of things, punctuation twinkling like the crest of a venerable family, sentences breathing peacefully, words whispering. ~ Jung-Myung Lee
Abstruse Def quotes by Jung-Myung Lee
...If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.

"The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? ~ Mark Twain
Abstruse Def quotes by Mark Twain
Hip-hop is a beautiful culture. It's inspirational, because it's a culture of survivors. You can create beauty out of nothingness. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Being black and speaking properly are not mutually exclusive. My father was an African, and he spoke beautifully at home. Nelson Mandela speaks beautifully. Should Mandela put his hat on backwards and say, 'Yo, homey, this is Nelson. Yo, Winnie, yo, this is def'? ~ Franklyn Ajaye
Abstruse Def quotes by Franklyn Ajaye
I guess something that you love to do, you gotta ease up off it and give it a little space, come back and be fresh to it. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Like drugs and alcohol, stairs take you up and stairs bring you down. Stairs are neither in one place nor another. They bridge the vertical. Stairs have no allegiance. Stairs live in a private world of the abstruse and mystical. Don't thrust them. More people die falling down stairs than on airplanes. ~ Chloe Thurlow
Abstruse Def quotes by Chloe Thurlow
This thing called rhymin' is no different than coal minin';
We both on assignment to unearth the diamond. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Joshua said nothing, for his mind was even now limning the vacancy. Lincoln would no more be seated on the far side of the dining table. He would no more ride his horse into town or let his huge hands rove through the library of stroll past the hemp house or listen to Eliza gabble or applaud Mary's nocturnes or argue some abstruse point of law with James or scratch behind Growler's ears as the dog lay stretched around his feet. From henceforth, there would be only space where Lincoln used to be.
And in Joshua's mind, that space began to expand and deepen until it became a vast nullity, blanketing everything around him until it seemed the night itself had been swallowed up by it. ~ Louis Bayard
Abstruse Def quotes by Louis Bayard
To me, the job of the artist is to provide a useful and intelligent vocabulary for the world to be able to articulate feelings they experience everyday, and otherwise wouldn't have the means to express in a meaningful and useful way. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
It's difficult to really be an artist nowadays. People are just on another page. You have a society that needs you to say something, but they don't want to give you the environment to be able to be just a functioning, happy, normal person. It's like, the industry is at odds with you, the society is at odds with you. You start to live in this very confined box where it's like, It's "me" and "them." ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Man's life as commentary to abstruse [940] Unfinished poem. Note for further use. Dressing ~ Vladimir Nabokov
Abstruse Def quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
My radio's loud like a fire alarm:
The floor vibrates, the walls cave in,
The bass makes my eardrums seem thin.
Def sounds in my ride, yes the front and back ...
You would think it was a party, not a Cadillac! ~ LL Cool J
Abstruse Def quotes by LL Cool J
Men of Science would do well to talk plain English. The most abstruse questions can very well be discussed in our own tongue ... I make a particular appeal to the botanists, who appear to delight in troublesome words. ~ Oliver Lodge
Abstruse Def quotes by Oliver Lodge
And remember don't high post when you're far from home, and high posting when you're all alone. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
All the things that are worth doing, take time. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
I'm a little different from the average dude because I'm on high-def TV now. ~ Ray Romano
Abstruse Def quotes by Ray Romano
Scriptural doctrine contains not abstruse speculation or philosophic reasoning, but very simple matters able to be understood by the most sluggish mind. ~ Baruch Spinoza
Abstruse Def quotes by Baruch Spinoza
I'm retiring the Mos Def name after 2011. I'm actually doing it. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
There was a time when hip-hop was its own musical principle, aside from sampling. Like the entire Wild Style break is instrumental. Kurtis Blow's earliest stuff was studio musicians playing. Whodini had a real clear sound, things like "five minutes of funk," stuff that you could write really beautiful, lush string and horn arrangements around, stuff that was just music. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
There's probably a bunch of Power Stripe floating through the Def Jam offices right now. ~ Method Man
Abstruse Def quotes by Method Man
It wouldn't be fair to cast aspersions on an entire cultural movement based on the actions of a few. To quote my grandfather, 'One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch.' ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
I just didn't wanna put the pressure on myself to be in there [Def Jam South] to work as an artist and to have the hat as the executive with other projects. ~ DJ Khaled
Abstruse Def quotes by DJ Khaled
I ain't no perfect man I'm tryna do the best that I can with what it is I have. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Beef is not what Jay said to Nas;
Beef is when the working folks can't find jobs. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Aging on camera is just very hard. I love my age. I feel good about myself but high definition television is not kind. You don't even look like yourself in high-def. It just makes every little line on your face more exaggerated so it ends up aging you. It's like you're watching yourself seven years older. ~ Lisa Edelstein
Abstruse Def quotes by Lisa Edelstein
The test in life nowadays is just trying to keep yourself charged up with enough good feeling. It's like, "OK what am I going to do to feel really good today?" Not like, some chick or a drink ... ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Omit a few of the most abstruse sciences, and mankind's study of man occupies nearly the whole field of literature. The burden of history is what man has been; of law, what he does; of physiology, what he is; of ethics, what he ought to be; of revelation, what he shall be. ~ George Finlayson
Abstruse Def quotes by George Finlayson
Life is a great big beautiful three-ring circus. There are those on the floor making their lives among the heads of lions and hoops of fire, and those in the stands, complacent and wowed, their mouths stuffed with popcorn.

I know less now than ever about life, but I do know its size. Life is enormous. Much grander than what we've taken for ourselves, so far.

When the show is over and the tent is packed, the elephants, lions and dancing poodles are caged and mounted on trucks to caravan to the next town. The clown's makeup has worn, and his bright, red smile has been washed down a sink. All that is left is another performance, another tent and set of lights. We rest in the knowledge: the show must go on.

Somewhere, behind our stage curtain, a still, small voice asks why we haven't yet taken up juggling. My seminars were like this. Only, instead of flipping shiny, black bowling balls or roaring chainsaws through the air, I juggled concepts.

The world is intrinsically tied together. All things march through time at different intervals but move ahead in one fashion or another.

Though we may never understand it, we are all part of something much larger than ourselves - something anchoring us to the spot we have mentally chosen. We sniff out the rules, through spiritual quests and the sciences. And with every new discovery, we grow more confused.

Our inability to connect what seems illogical to unite and to def ~ Christopher Hawke
Abstruse Def quotes by Christopher Hawke
The Britons (say historians) were naked, civilized men, learned, studious, abstruse in thought and contemplation; naked, simple, plain in their acts and manners; wiser than after ages. ~ William Blake
Abstruse Def quotes by William Blake
I find no quality so easy for a man to counterfeit as devotion, though his life and manner are not conformable to it; the essence of it is abstruse and occult, but the appearances easy and showy. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Abstruse Def quotes by Michel De Montaigne
Know verily that the purpose underlying all these symbolic terms and abstruse allusions, which emanate from the revealers of Gods holy cause, hath been to test and prove the peoples of the world; that thereby the earth of the pure and illuminated hearts may be known from the perishable and barren soil. ~ Bahaullah
Abstruse Def quotes by Bahaullah
Mos Def is a name that I built and cultivated over the years it's a name that the streets taught me a figure of speech that was given to me by the culture and by my environment and I feel I've done quite a bit with that name and it's time to expand and move on. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
The tendency has always been strong to believe that whatever received a name must be an entity or being, having an independent existence of its own. And if no real entity answering to the name could be found, men did not for that reason suppose that none existed, but imagined that it was something peculiarly abstruse and mysterious. ~ John Stuart Mill
Abstruse Def quotes by John Stuart Mill
I'm an independent thinker. And I'm not the poster child for any movement. I'm trying to support whatever's right no matter where it is. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
Most of the time the concept of globalization ends up sounding unnecessarily abstruse - even the name itself sounds clunky and highfalutin. ~ Franklin Foer
Abstruse Def quotes by Franklin Foer
I am as a speck of dust in the sun, and not even so much, in this solemn, mysterious, unknowable universe. ~ Andrew Carnegie
Abstruse Def quotes by Andrew Carnegie
I began to fear that Mos Def was being treated as a product, not a person, so I've been going by Yasiin since '99. At first it was just for friends and family, but now I'm declaring it openly. ~ Mos Def
Abstruse Def quotes by Mos Def
They say that when a man faces his destiny, the destiny ends and he becomes the man that he really is. ~ Mos Def
