Denis quotes by Denis Diderot

Denis quotes by Denis Johnston
#3. I support a very active programme on disarmament and arms control for Iraq, and of course every other country in the world ... That does not require economic sanctions ...

Denis quotes by Denis Halliday

Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#5. I'm sure we were all feeling blessed on this ferryboat among the humps of very green
in the sunlight almost coolly burning, like phosphorus
islands, and the water of inlets winking in the sincere light of day, under a sky as blue and brainless as the love of God, despite the smell, the slight, dreamy suffocation, of some kind of petroleum-based compound used to seal the deck's seams. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson

Denis quotes by Denis Boyles
#8. I pushed through the door into Kelly's. Inside they sat with their fat hands around their beers while the jukebox sang softly to itself. You'd think they'd found out how, by sitting still and holding their necks just so, to look down into lost worlds. - Author: Denis Johnson

Denis quotes by Claire Denis

Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#15. The traveling salesmen fed me pills that made the lining of my veins feel scraped out, my jaw ached ... I knew every raindrop by its name, I sensed everything before it happened. Like I knew a certain oldsmobile would stop even before it slowed, and by the sweet voices of the family inside, I knew we'd have an accident in the rain. I didn't care. They said they'd take me all the way. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson

Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#19. Now he slept soundly through the nights, and often he dreamed of trains, and often of one particular train: He was on it; he could smell the coal smoke; a world went by. And then he was standing in that world as the sound of the train died away. A frail familiarity in these scenes hinted to him that they came from his childhood. Sometimes he woke to hear the sound of the Spokane International fading up the valley and realized he'd been hearing the locomotive as he dreamed. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#20. I'm sick and tired of our generation being called the TV generation. What do you expect? We watched Lee Harvey Oswald get his brains blown out all over. How could we change the channel after that? - Author: Denis Leary

Denis quotes by DENIS DONOGHUE (EDITOR)
#28. The philosopher forms his principles on an infinity of particular observations ... He does not confuse truth with plausibility ... he takes for truth what is true, for false what is false, for doubtful what is doubtful, and probable what is probable ... The philosophical spirit is thus a spirit of observation and accuracy. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot

Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#33. Our goal is to turn solar electric technologies into a commodity business like computer chips, and make them ubiquitous in the built environment. I'd couple this with a huge commitment to fundamental research in nanostructure to goose the next generation of more efficient, cheaper, dematerialized cells. And if I'm truly czar, I'd emphasize silicon technologies, as that approach is the one least likely to encounter material constraints in supplying an explosive global demand. - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes

Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#37. I try to work out six days a week, you know, weights two days a week, and I try to run those six days, so I get good cardio. - Author: Denis McDonough
Denis quotes by Denis McDonough
#38. forming the "hydrogen bond"... is dynamic, with the exchange occurring in a few billionths of a billionth of a second. Since water molecules can "lose" two hydrogen atoms and "win" two by way of their oxygen atom, they are on average regrouped in fours, and the network of water, whether in our glass or in our cells is tetrahedral. All the same, this arrangement is not perfect in liquid water (otherwise the water would be a solid crystal), and locally there are many defects in the network. Although the motif of four water molecules is the most common in "linear" hydrogen bonds, the water molecule sometimes has a "forked tongue" with bifurcated liaisons, which creates arrangements of three or five, or even two or six molecules. This variability prevents water from being structured over a great distance and enables it to remain in a liquid state at the ambient temperature. - Author: Denis Le Bihan
Denis quotes by Denis Le Bihan
#39. The amazing thing, when she came to do the long-postponed Egypta in 1910, after she had won international fame, was that she did indeed do a work which was not only a day in the life of Egypt but the life of the nation itself, starting with dawn, with prayer, with the river Nile (she was the river itself), with the labors of the working people of Egypt, with temple ceremonies, with entertainment of the pharaoh, and with the final judgment when, before the god Osiris, the heart of Egypt is weighed against the feather of truth. - Author: Walter Terry
Denis quotes by Walter Terry
#40. Everything that is past is either a learning experience to grow on, a beautiful memory to reflect on, or a motivating factor to act upon. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#41. Do I strike you as a frivolous man, Kelly?"
I look at him, sitting there in another thousand dollar suit. Pompous? Yes. Self-centered? Yes. Careless? "No. - Author: Bill Blais
Denis quotes by Bill Blais
#42. Dumbing down takes many forms: art that is good for you, museums that flatter you, universities that increase your self-esteem. Culture, after all, is really about you. - Author: Denis Dutton
Denis quotes by Denis Dutton
#43. The French Revolution, which is nothing more nor less than the ideal armed with the sword, rose abruptly, and by that very movement, closed the door of evil and opened the door of good.
It released the question, promulgated truth, drove away miasma, purified the century, crowned the people.
We can say it created man a second time, in giving him a second soul, his rights. Page 997 Saint-Denis chapter 7 Argot part III - Author: Victor Hugo
Denis quotes by Victor Hugo
#44. The Gods have meant
That I should dance
And in some mystic hour
I shall move to unheard rhythms
Of the cosmic orchestra of heaven
And you will know the language
Of my wordless poems
And will come to me
For that is why I dance. - Author: Ruth St. Denis
Denis quotes by Ruth St. Denis
#45. F the government is going to put money into the automobile sector, it should break up GM and Chrysler as a condition of financial aid, and it should be even-handed in its treatment of start-up firms like Tesla, Miles, Fisker, and others. It would be terrible to kill the entrepreneurs who have taken great risks to bring new automotive technologies to market by pumping tax dollars into the behemoths that have done everything wrong for the last years. - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes

The four most important are - 'What is your opinion?'
The three most important are - 'If you please'
The two most important are - 'Thank You'
And the most important single word of all is - 'You' - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#49. Wearing Deni's huge vicuna coat with the si cap over my ears, in cold biting winds of December New York, Irwin and Simon led me up to the Russian Tea Room to meet Salvador Dali.
He was sitting with his chin on a finely decorated tile headed cane, blue and white, next to his wife at the Cafe table. He had a cane, blue and white, next to his wife at the Cafe table. He had a little wax moustache, thin. When the waiter asked him what he wanted he said 'One grapefruit...peenk!' and he had big blue eyes like a baby, a real or Spaniard. He told us no artist was great unless he made money. Was he talking about Uccello, Ghianondri, Franca? We didn't even know what money really was or what to do with it. Dali had already read an article about the 'insurgent' 'beats' and was interested. When Irwin told him (in Spanish) we wanted to meet Marlon Brando (who ate in this Russian Tea Room) he said, waving three fingers at me, 'He is more beautiful than M. Brando.'
I wondered why he said that but he probably had a tiff with old Marlon. But what he meant was my eyes, which were blue, like his, and my hair, which is black, like his, and when I looked into his eyes, and he looked into my eyes, we couldn't stand all that sadness. In fact, when Dali and I look in the mirror we can't stand all that sadness. To Dali sadness is beautiful. - Author: Jack Kerouac
Denis quotes by Jack Kerouac
#50. We've got to have a dream if we are going to make a dream come true. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#51. I didn't finish the stories until we went to the Philippines and I got malaria. I couldn't work and I didn't have any money, but I had seven stories. So I wrote three or four more. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#52. People praise virtue, but they hate it, they run away from it. It freezes you to death, and in this world you've got to keep your feet warm. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#53. America has the technology and resources to meet all its energy needs while safeguarding the earth's climate. The urgent question now is, 'Do we have the will?' At least one city does, and I'm proud to live in it. - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes
#54. I was probably 35 when I wrote the first story. The voice is kind of a mix in that it has a young voice, but it's also someone who's looking back. I like that kind of double vision. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#55. Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us; concentrate our energy. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#56. I suppose I am interested in the variety of human life - how people live. I am most interested in individuals and how they respond to challenges or to difficulties or just to each other. I am curious about people. - Author: Claire Denis
Denis quotes by Claire Denis
#57. Happiness is indeed a Eurydice, vanishing as soon as gazed upon. It can exist only in acceptance, and succumbs as soon as it is laid claim to. - Author: Denis De Rougemont
Denis quotes by Denis De Rougemont
#58. I love to smoke. I smoke seven thousand packs a day! - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#59. As long as the centuries continue to unfold, the number of books will grow continually, and one can predict that a time will come when it will be almost as difficult to learn anything from books as from the direct study of the whole universe. It will be almost as convenient to search for some bit of truth concealed in nature as it will be to find it hidden away in an immense multitude of bound volumes. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#60. Ignorance is less remote from the truth than prejudice. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#61. Scholes was playing tiki-taka football when nobody in England knew what it was. He was another of those players, like Denis Law or Bobby Moore, who at 15 probably looked as if he wouldn't make it. Too small, you would think - can't run, dumpy little ginger nut - but then the ball would come to him and he would dazzle you. He was the best footballer in that Manchester United midfield, better than Ryan Giggs and Roy Keane. - Author: Harry Redknapp
Denis quotes by Harry Redknapp
#62. Choose a career you love and you will never have to go to work. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#63. Ann Romney talking about middle class moms is like Chris Christie talking about a salad - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#64. Obama wants to build such things as smart electrical grids and high-speed rail lines, which will offer big environmental improvements. Another obvious thing is that large-scale project financing is virtually frozen, so a lot of renewable energy projects are on hold. If the system doesn't get unclogged before the developers run out of cash, they will be cancelled. Money matters, and we are racing against time. - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes
#65. Steve Paikin : Can you imagine evolution being unproved someday ?
Jerry A. Coyne : It's possible, there are some facts that could disprove evolution, for example if I dug down into rocks say.. a billion years old and found a fossil of human or a fossil of rabbit and you did that and you were certain enough that these rocks were old, that would completely overthrow darwinism but the fact is, you know, over a 150 years of digging we haven't found a fossil out of place.
[Evolution and Religion - Paul Nelson vs. Jerry Coyne/Denis Lamoureux, 16m40] - Author: Jerry A. Coyne
Denis quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#66. After a noticeable silence, he'd recently published a book of technically baffling poems, with line breaks so arbitrary and frequent as to be useless, arrhythmic. On the page they look like some of Charles Bukowski's skinny, chatty, muttering-stuttering antiverses. Impossibly, Mark's words make music, the faraway strains of an irresistible jazz. It's plain to any reader, within a few lines - well, go read the poems and see, Marcus Ahearn traffics with the ineffable. He makes the mind of the speaker present, in that here-and-now where the reader actually reads - that place. Such a rare thing. Samuel Beckett. Jean Follain, Ionesco - the composer Billy Strayhorn. Mark calls his process "psychic improvisation" and referred me to the painter Paul Klee; the term was Klee's. "You just get out a pen and a notebook and let your mind go long," he told me. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#67. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#68. I think it was 1987 - something like that - or '86, and I thought, 'When you go equity and you're gonna get paid, you'll finally be able to make a living.' But it was not to be so. I always bartended and waited tables so I ended up not doing theater for about a year because nobody would hire me. - Author: Denis O'Hare
Denis quotes by Denis O'Hare
#69. If you have real, internal value, you don't need a loud, expensive imitation. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley

Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#72. I'm still pretty self-centered, greedy and angry. - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#73. From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#74. Indeed, the purpose of an encyclopedia is to collect knowledge disseminated around the globe; to set forth its general system to the men with whom we live, and transmit it to those who will come after us, so that the work of preceding centuries will not become useless to the centuries to come; and so that our offspring, becoming better instructed, will at the same time become more virtuous and happy, and that we should not die without having rendered a service to the human race in the future years to come. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#75. If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#76. When you're in a hole, stop digging. - Author: Denis Healey
Denis quotes by Denis Healey
#77. Self-esteem is felt even though you may not have done anything yet, but just feel the capability for it. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley

Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#79. The first best-kept secret of total success is that we must feel love inside ourselves before we can give it to others. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#80. The whole of the situation of the Conservative Party today springs from that night when they dismissed the best prime minister the country had had since Churchill. - Author: Denis Thatcher
Denis quotes by Denis Thatcher
#81. In contrast, "community property" states have no inheritance requirements for spouses. Instead, spouses are protected by the rule that each spouse owns one-half of all property acquired by either spouse during marriage. There are, of course, some exceptions. For example, property owned by one spouse before marriage and kept separate during the marriage remains the separate property of that spouse, as does property inherited by or gifted to one spouse. - Author: Denis Clifford
Denis quotes by Denis Clifford
#82. I doubt if many of my contemporaries, especially the older ones, did many exercises. I have often tried to picture (Godfrey) Evans and (Denis) Compton doing press-ups in the out field before the days play, but so far have failed miserably. - Author: Peter May
Denis quotes by Peter May
#83. Julieanne Smolinksi has a history in rock journalism and she's a huge rock 'n' roll fan, and she was a huge fan of Ava (Elaine Hendrix) and Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) and of the actresses. I was really lucky to get her, in between seasons on Grace and Frankie. - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#84. Environmentally, business in America in 1970 was very similar to business in China today. Even if a CEO wanted to be a responsible corporate citizen, he (and they were all "he's" then) simply couldn't invest a billion dollars in pollution controls to produce a product that was indistinguishable from those of his competitors. His products would be priced out of the market. Passing laws that created a clean, level playing field for whole industries had to be a core focus of the 1970s. - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes
#85. I picture the vast realm of the sciences as an immense landscape scattered with patches of dark and light. The goal towards which we must work is either to extend the boundaries of the patches of light, or to increase their number. One of these tasks falls to the creative genius; the other requires a sort of sagacity combined with perfectionism. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#86. Trying to influence another person without first establishing a relationship is like trying to boil water outside of a kettle. Trust, like the kettle, is the vessel in which all things work together to generate powerful action - Author: Denis G. McLaughlin
Denis quotes by Denis G. McLaughlin
#87. Now we had a stupid silence, the kind that always descends on people who are half in the bag. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#88. He got right down in the dark between heartbeats, and rested there. And then he saw that another one wasn't going to come. That's it. That's the last. He looked at the dark. I would like to take this opportunity, he said, to pray for another human being. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#89. Gladys had seen all of this, and she made it his to know. She'd lost her future to death, and lost her child to life. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#90. Your attitude is either the lock on or key to your door of success. - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley

Denis quotes by Denis Diderot

Denis quotes by Denis Leary

Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#96. Recycle the body through fire; scatter the remains back into the earth. - Author: Denis Hearn
Denis quotes by Denis Hearn

Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#98. You're not good or bad
You're just on your way at your own speed - Author: Denis Gorce-Bourge
Denis quotes by Denis Gorce-Bourge
#99. I feel very privileged to hear how somebody used to run around stickin' people up and stealing cars, and now they're gettin' their life back together ... I just love the stories. The stories of the fallen world, they excite us. That's the interesting stuff. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#100. Understand that you, yourself, are no more than the composite picture of all your thoughts and actions. In your relationships with others, remember the basic and critically important rule: If you want to be loved, be lovable. If you want respect, set a respectable example! - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#101. He didn't like having to start the fire again, that was the source of this small sadness. You get tired of these endless beginnings. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#102. Big actions, in our system of checks and balances, require approval by Congress and have to pass constitutional muster by the Supreme Court, and some powers are reserved to the states. So this overused "czar" word is a little misleading. But the things America ought to do should include the following: - Author: Denis Hayes
Denis quotes by Denis Hayes
#103. This peculiar connexion between a certain view of woman and the European conception of war has had profound consequences for morality, education, and politics. - Author: Denis De Rougemont
Denis quotes by Denis De Rougemont
#104. I think all the characters in 'American Horror Story,' which is why I love it, are looking for some sense of meaning, and also it's their form of happiness. - Author: Denis O'Hare
Denis quotes by Denis O'Hare
#105. Being attacked by him is like being savaged by a dead sheep. - Author: Denis Healey
Denis quotes by Denis Healey
#106. Habits start out as off-hand remarks, magazine advertisements, friendly hints, experiments - like flimsy cobwebs with little substance. They grow with practice, layer by layer - thought on thought - fused with imagination and emotion until they become like steel cables - unbreakable. Habits are attitudes which grow from cobwebs into cables that control your everyday life. Self-discipline alone can make or break a habit. Self discipline alone can effect a permanent change in your self image and in you. Self-discipline achieves goals. Self discipline is not 'doing without,' it is 'doing within.' - Author: Denis Waitley
Denis quotes by Denis Waitley
#107. I hope you slept well," he said. "Yes, isn't it lovely?" Jenny replied, giving two rapid little nods. "But we had such awful thunderstorms last week." Parallel straight lines, Denis reflected, meet only at infinity. He might talk for ever of care-charmer sleep and she of meteorology till the end of time. Did one ever establish contact with anyone? We are all parallel straight lines. Jenny was only a little more parallel than most. "They - Author: Aldous Huxley
Denis quotes by Aldous Huxley
#108. Palestinian children deserve the same right to be free in their own land as Israeli children in their land. A two-state solution will finally bring Israelis the security and normalcy to which they are entitled, and Palestinians the sovereignty and dignity they deserve. - Author: Denis McDonough
Denis quotes by Denis McDonough
#109. My goal is to leave this planet with the biggest carbon footprint I can possibly leave. - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#110. It was only when you left it alone that a tree might treat you as a friend. After the blade bit in, you had yourself a war. - Author: Denis Johnson
Denis quotes by Denis Johnson
#111. I'm learning more and more to share creativity with the crew and actors. A film crew is more powerful if you listen to them, but it does make my job more tough because I have to listen. - Author: Denis Villeneuve
Denis quotes by Denis Villeneuve
#112. It seems to me that if one had kept silence up to now regarding religion, people would still be submerged in the most grotesque and dangerous superstition ... regarding government, we would still be groaning under the bonds of feudal government ... regarding morals, we would still be having to learn what is virtue and what is vice. To forbid all these discussions, the only ones worthy of occupying a good mind, is to perpetuate the reign of ignorance and barbarism. - Author: Denis Diderot
Denis quotes by Denis Diderot
#113. Some say that to struggle in life is the point of it all. Wisdom says that it is not in the struggling that life's creative process precedes, but in the deep knowing that your victory is already won. - Author: Denis John George
Denis quotes by Denis John George
#114. I think it's a shame when you come across young actors and musicians who haven't had the time to learn their craft. It doesn't matter if it's acting or music; you really have to learn how to do it from the bottom up because unless you have a great work ethic ... fame is a terrible thing to have. - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary
#115. Sometimes 'great acting' is just showing off - chewing up scenery and dialogue and other actors - the equivalent of a theatrical sugar rush. - Author: Denis Leary
Denis quotes by Denis Leary

Denis quotes by Denis O'Hare

Denis quotes by Denis Leary

#120. The more a man is given to sentiment ,the more likely is he to be wordy and to speak well. - Author: Denis De Rougemont
Denis quotes by Denis De Rougemont
#121. What I don't like so much is to give explanations about people's behaviour ... I'm not interested in making conclusions. I would never think about myself or anyone else, 'Well, this happened, this happened, this happened, so this must be the result.' It doesn't work like that with me. - Author: Claire Denis

The protagonist of Fourteen Stories, None of Them Are Yours doesn't make it easy for us, channeling as he does Barry Hannah and Denis Johnson by way of Rick Bass and Dennis Hopper, and self-presenting as yet another damaged romantic who thinks it's always time to play the cowboy, skating in and out of sense. He can't see right, and he's haunted by nearly everything. He's trying to open up or shut himself down or at least get a hold of himself. He's trying to make do with what he's done, while he reminds us that we're all, one way or another, in that position. - Author: Jim Shepard

#150. Not all the people living at Beverly Home were old and helpless. Some were young but paralyzed. Some weren't past middle age but were already demented. Others were fine, except that they couldn't be allowed out on the street with their impossible deformities. They made God look like a senseless maniac.

His hands were eighteen inches long. His head was like a fifty-pound Brazil nut with a face.
