#1. At some point, we all have to decide how we are going to fail: by not going far enough, or by going too far. The only alternative for the most successful (maybe even the most fulfilled) people is the latter. - Author: Harriet Rubin
Going Too Far quotes by Harriet Rubin
#2. Being a nerd, which is to say going too far and caring too much about a subject, is the best way to make friends I know. - Author: Sarah Vowell
Going Too Far quotes by Sarah Vowell
#3. Listen, I'm sorry to bother you when you're obviously busy with, uh, important things, " B. J. Says. He sounds sarcastic. "But you remember a few months ago, when we scored that pot for Brian Turner?"
"Sort of, " I say, wondering if it would be going too far to call B. J. "pookie" or "schmooper. " I want Courtney to be jealous, but I also don't want her thinking I'm a pussy. Which is really fucked up, since, you know, I'm the one that broke up with her. - Author: Lauren Barnholdt
Going Too Far quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
#4. After this Daisy was never at home, and Winterbourne ceased to meet her at the houses of their common acquaintances, because, as he perceived, these shrewd people had quite made up their minds that she was going too far. They ceased to invite her, and they intimated that they desired to express observant Europeans the great truth that, though Miss Daisy Miller was a young American lady, her behaviour was not representative - was regarded by her compatriots as abnormal. Winterbourne wondered how she felt about all the cold shoulders that were turned towards her, and sometimes it annoyed him to suspect that she did not feel at all. He said to himself that she was too light and childish, too uncultivated and unreasoning, too provincial, to have reflected upon her ostracism or even to have perceived it. Then at other moments he believed that she carried about in her elegant and irresponsible little organism a defiant, passionate, perfectly observant consciousness of the impression she produced. He asked himself whether Daisy's defiance came from the consciousness of innocence or from her being, essentially, a young person of the reckless class. It must be admitted that holding oneself to a belief in Daisy's "innocence" came to see Winterbourne more and more a matter of fine-spun gallantry. As I have already had occasion to relate, he was angry at finding himself reduced to chopping logic about this young lady; he was vexed at his want of instinctive certitude as to how far her ec - Author: Henry James
Going Too Far quotes by Henry James
#5. The eye is continually influenced by what it cannot detect; nay, it is not going too far, to say that it is most influenced by what it detects least. Let the painter define, if he can, the variations of lines on which depend the change of expression in the human countenance. - Author: John Ruskin
Going Too Far quotes by John Ruskin
#6. But you can't live your life worried about dying all the time. If you do, you're dead already. - Author: Jennifer Echols
Going Too Far quotes by Jennifer Echols
#7. I'm always a little cautious, there's a few amendments that are out there that I think could do some damage, so I've been more concerned about over regulating, going too far. - Author: Don Nickles
Going Too Far quotes by Don Nickles
#8. It little mattered whether my curiosity irritated him: I knew the pleasure of vexing and soothing him by turns; it was one I chiefly delighted in, and a sure instinct always prevented me from going too far: beyond the verge or provocation I never ventured; on the extreme brink I liked well to try my skill. Retaining every minute form of respect, every propriety of my station, I could still meet him in argument without fear of uneasy restraint: this suited both him and me. - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Going Too Far quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#9. I should have run away from you and started college and gone on without you. But I would always have regretted it if I didn't give this a shot.
- Tiffany - Author: Jennifer Echols
Going Too Far quotes by Jennifer Echols
#10. But at the same time, there must never be the least hesitation in giving up a position the moment it is shown to be untenable. It is not going too far to say that the greatness of a scientific investigator does not rest on the fact of his having never made a mistake, but rather on his readiness to admit that he has done so, whenever the contrary evidence is cogent enough. - Author: William Bayliss
Going Too Far quotes by William Bayliss
#11. The mentality of mankind and the language of mankind created each other. If we like to assume the rise of language as a given fact, then it is not going too far to say that the souls of men are the gift from language to mankind. The account of the sixth day should be written: He gave them speech, and they became souls - Author: Alfred North Whitehead
Going Too Far quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#12. We should never feel like we're going too far in breaking the law, because whatever laws you break to liberate animals or to protect the environment are very insignificant compared to the laws that are broken by that parliament of whores in Washington. They are the biggest lawbreakers, the biggest destroyers, the biggest mass-murderers on this planet right now. - Author: Paul Watson
Going Too Far quotes by Paul Watson
#13. Her mood was suddenly in free fall, a state she knew all too well. A heaviness inside. A hollow loneliness. A need to either quarrel or cry. A downward plunge that could only be escaped by huge loss of temper, howling for her mother, or what people like teachers called going too far.
Trouble on the way. - Author: Hilary McKay
Going Too Far quotes by Hilary McKay
#14. Since we were renamed, and now it feels like 80 percent of the African-American population has the name Washington or Jefferson or some president or slave owner's name. And, I almost wonder is this, like, is this part of a way of taking back the principle of naming your - I might be going too far into this - but naming your kids something of your choice? - Author: Jordan Peele
Going Too Far quotes by Jordan Peele
#15. She believes that going too far is wrong. Yet she's not trying to prove her point; she's just living it out. - Author: Travis Thrasher
Going Too Far quotes by Travis Thrasher
#16. The problem for Rome, then, is how and when the intervention should be done with a sense of the possibility of going too far in limiting the freedom of theologians. This is not an easy time - neither for Rome nor for the theologians. - Author: Godfried Danneels
Going Too Far quotes by Godfried Danneels
#17. I had no idea what I was doing, I had no idea where I was going, but at some point I stopped - when to keep going would seem like I was going too far. - Author: Chip Kidd
Going Too Far quotes by Chip Kidd
#18. The colleges and other institutions of learning are going too far, in my opinion. I think 50% of those attending educational institutions, having the professions in view, would be better off with a common school education that would enable them to earn a living, rather than sit around in offices and wait for clients.
W.A. Clark (MT Senator, 1901-1907) - Author: Bill Dedman
Going Too Far quotes by Bill Dedman
#19. Because if you take something you're a thief.' She nursed the silence a moment. Downed the balance of her drink and silently signaled for another. 'Sounds simple, but you'd be amazed how many people don't get it. They steal but they call themselves honest. They cheat on their spouses and lovers but they think they're good people. They lie but they'd never call themselves liars. Well, let me tell you something, Todd ... She pointed toward him with her right hand, with her lit cigarette. He leaned away slightly. She looked into the mirror of his eyes and saw herself going too far. 'You are what you do. That's what I'm trying to tell you. What we do defines us. However we behave, conduct our lives ... that's real. The rest is just a story for publication. - Author: Catherine Ryan Hyde
Going Too Far quotes by Catherine Ryan Hyde
#20. Chairs are public, and one only needs to seek permission to sit in another's chair if the owner of the room is present; once you were by yourself, any chair was fair game. Except the chairs of really important people - one should not sit on a throne when left unattended in a monarch's throne room; that really was going too far. And yet who would miss such an opportunity? There could surely be little doubt but that visitors - Author: Alexander McCall Smith
Going Too Far quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#21. When Clive stood from the piano and shuffled to the doorway to turn out the studio lights, and looked back at the rich, beautiful chaos that surrounded his toils, and had once more a passing thought, the minuscule fragment of a suspicion that he would not have shared with a single person in the world, would not have even have committed to his journal and whose key word he shaped in his mind only with reluctance ; the thought was, quite simply, that it might be going too far to say that he was ... a genius. A genius. Though he sounded it guiltily on his inner ear, he would not let the word reach his lips. - Author: Ian McEwan
Going Too Far quotes by Ian McEwan
#22. It would not be going too far to assert that ... conflict confronts every woman who ventures upon a career of her own and who is ... unwilling to pay for her daring with the renunciation of her femininity. - Author: Karen Horney
Going Too Far quotes by Karen Horney
#23. Imagination is a safety net that catches you. There is no going too far, no need for a safe word inside your mind. This world is your creation. - Author: K. Kiker
Going Too Far quotes by K. Kiker
#24. What you accomplish in life is limited only by your imagination and the fear of reprisal. Life is too fleeting and unrewarding to have to live with the added anus of indignity. The denial of one's inevitable demise is what causes most of the astringent blandness in the world. When your existence ends most certainly in death, there is no such thing as 'going too far'. There are no 'lines' you should fear to cross except the finish line. Playing it safe is the most dangerous thing you could do. - Author: Jim Goad
Going Too Far quotes by Jim Goad
#25. There is something soothing about working in the yard. Planting seeds and seeing them poke green out of the dirt. And it gets you out of the house with out going too far. - Author: Michael Lee West
Going Too Far quotes by Michael Lee West
#26. It's not okay to just make up false things about someone, especially in their personal life. Professionally, fine! Scrutinize me all you want. I know that I can't please everyone, but personally, let's just leave it alone. It's going too far. - Author: Keri Hilson
Going Too Far quotes by Keri Hilson
#27. I've had the best time! The spirit here is incredible. It's competitive, to be sure, but everyone supports each other. I was getting advice from men I was about to go against right up to the very moment the competitions began."
"That's wonderful," Joanna said and handed him a mug of lemonade. "You look absolutely awful."
"I showered," he replied, a bit defensively.
"She means the bruises," Kassandra said. She thought "awful" was going too far, for the truth was, he looked magnificent. He was a bit battered, however, as was to be expected. All the competitors were the same.
"These are nothing," he insisted, gesturing to the livid black-and-blue splotches with which he was adorned, and with the enthusiasm of a boy, added, "I won two silver bracelets. Here." He handed one to each of them and beamed as they put them on.
"Thank you," Joanna said sweetly and leaned over to kiss his cheek.
Kassandra stared at the bracelet, turning it round and round her wrist. In her quarters, there were chests fitted with silk-lined drawers that held precious jewels given to her because she was a princess. She wore them on occasion and enjoyed them. But never had she received anything so lovely as that simple silver bracelet won by sweat and skill in the Games.
"It's very nice," she said, and felt his gaze even as she refused to meet it. - Author: Josie Litton
Going Too Far quotes by Josie Litton
#28. Uncontrolled access to data, with no audit trail of activity and no oversight would be going too far. This applies to both commercial and government use of data about people. - Author: John Poindexter
Going Too Far quotes by John Poindexter
#29. In going too far, they [presidents] have taken away the individual rights of American citizens. - Author: Dick Durbin
Going Too Far quotes by Dick Durbin
#30. Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. - Author: T. S. Eliot
Going Too Far quotes by T. S. Eliot
#31. In Switzerland, we have a centuries-old tradition of living together in one confederation and one society. That holds us back from excesses. We are a civilized and enlightened community and, by practising multicultural tolerance, we manage to stop extreme developments from going too far. - Author: Klaus Schwab
Going Too Far quotes by Klaus Schwab
#32. I grew up in a Texas where people would say, 'I didn't leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me.' Now, the reverse is happening. People are leaving the Republican Party because the Republican Party is going too far to the right in Texas. And that's a source of great potential support for Democrats. - Author: Julian Castro
Going Too Far quotes by Julian Castro
#33. Oh, and the uniform. I've laid out some stuff for you to wear, and probably you'll think it's going too far, but, you know, if you're into it, it's traditional where they come from. I know it's a little skimpy, but we'll be altering the weather on this planet soon. I do have two-sided tape someplace. And the headpiece is adjustable. Totally one hundred percent optional. - Author: John Joseph Adams
Going Too Far quotes by John Joseph Adams
#34. As surely as I feel love and need for food and water, I feel love and need for God. But these feelings have nothing to do with Supramundane Males planning torments for those who don't abide by neocon "moral values." I hold the evangelical truth of our situation to be that contemporary politicized fundamentalists, including first and foremost those aimed at Empire and Armageddon, need us non-fundamentalists, mystics, ecosystem activists, unprogrammable artists, agnostic humanitarians, incorrigible writers, truth-telling musicians, incorruptible scientists, organic gardeners, slow food farmers, gay restaurateurs, wilderness visionaries, pagan preachers of sustainability, compassion-driven entrepreneurs, heartbroken Muslims, grief-stricken children, loving believers, loving disbelievers, peace-marching millions, and the One who loves us all in such a huge way that it is not going too far to say: they need us for their salvation. - Author: David James Duncan
Going Too Far quotes by David James Duncan
#35. Guys like him, the ones who grip the Bible so tight they leave fingernail grooves, they're the ones who are the most scared of their dark side. Always going too far the other way, fighting for the Lord, often just because it gives them an excuse to fight. - Author: David Wong
Going Too Far quotes by David Wong
#36. We must risk going too far to discover just how far we can go. - Author: Jim Rohn
Going Too Far quotes by Jim Rohn
#37. I'm often accused of 'going too far,' but I recognize that behind my desire to shock is an even stronger desire to evade the 'feminine' stereotype: 'You say women are afraid of mice? I'll show you! I'll eat the mouse! - Author: Anne Beatts
Going Too Far quotes by Anne Beatts
#38. It is impossible to fight bullies merely by saying they're going too far. - Author: Robert Reich
Going Too Far quotes by Robert Reich
#39. May ya have the hindsight ta know where you've been, the foresight ta know where where you're going, and the insight ta know when you're going too far... - Author: Shirley Bourget
Going Too Far quotes by Shirley Bourget
#40. To the pure geometer the radius of curvature is an incidental characteristic - like the grin of the Cheshire cat. To the physicist it is an indispensable characteristic. It would be going too far to say that to the physicist the cat is merely incidental to the grin. Physics is concerned with interrelatedness such as the interrelatedness of cats and grins. In this case the "cat without a grin" and the "grin without a cat" are equally set aside as purely mathematical phantasies. - Author: Arthur Eddington
Going Too Far quotes by Arthur Eddington
#41. If I feel like I'm going too far in one direction, I just can it. It's a weird thing. Some of my songs might be cheesy; I try and keep it light. It's hard to explain. - Author: Mac DeMarco
Going Too Far quotes by Mac DeMarco
#42. If you sincerely want to know if you're "going too far," don't ask yourself, "Is this bad?" Instead ask yourself, "Is this pure?" - Author: Jason Evert
Going Too Far quotes by Jason Evert
#43. They say it's the responsibility of the media to look at government - especially the President - with a microscope. I don't argue with that, but when they use a proctoscope, it's going too far. - Author: Richard M. Nixon
Going Too Far quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#44. Since middle-class Western women can best be weakened psychologically now that we are stronger materially, the beauty myth, as it has resurfaced in the last generation, has had to draw on more technological sophistication and reactionary fervor than ever before. The modern arsenal of the myth is a dissemination of millions of images of the current ideal; although this barrage is generally seen as a collective sexual fantasy, there is in fact little that is sexual about it. It is summoned out of political fear on the part of male-dominated institutions threatened by women's freedom, and it exploits female guilt and apprehension about our own liberation
latent fears that we might be going too far. - Author: Naomi Wolf
Going Too Far quotes by Naomi Wolf
#45. No tablecloths, silver cutlery, fine porcelain, sommeliers, or deep wine lists - that's fine. But no service or hospitality? That's going too far. - Author: Daniel Humm
Going Too Far quotes by Daniel Humm
#46. There was an assumption that I was personally attacking Sarah Palin by impersonating her on TV. No one ever said it was 'mean' when Chevy Chase played Gerald Ford falling down all the time. No one ever accused Dana Carvey or Darrell Hammond or Dan Aykroyd of 'going too far' in their political impressions. You see what I'm getting at here. I am not mean and Mrs. Palin is not fragile. To imply otherwise is a disservice to us both. - Author: Tina Fey
Going Too Far quotes by Tina Fey
#47. She read her way around the library, hungry for journeys, adventures, laughter and passion. She took each new book to bed like a lover, savouring every chapter, going too far some nights until the letters danced like insects and she was groggy next day at work. But still she'd sneak away for lunchtime trysts, her eager fingers fumbling for the bookmark. - Author: Cath Staincliffe
Going Too Far quotes by Cath Staincliffe
#48. Oh, I'm not just going too far, I've arrived. - Author: Jose Saramago
Going Too Far quotes by Jose Saramago
#49. Zhuangzi's wife died. When Huizu went to convey his condolences, he found Zhuangzi sitting with his legs sprawled out, pounding on a tub and singing. "You lived with her, she brought up your children and grew old," said Huizu. "It should be enough simply not to weep at her death. But pounding on a tub and singing - this is going too far, isn't it?"

Zhuangzi said, "You're wrong. When she first died, do you think I didn't grieve like anyone else? But I looked back to her beginning and the time before she was born. Not only the time before she was born, but the time before she had a body. Not only the time before she had a body, but the time before she had a spirit. In the midst of the jumble of wonder and mystery a change took place and she had a spirit. Another change and she had a body. Another change and she was born. Now there's been another change and she's dead. It's just like the progression of the four seasons, spring, summer, fall, winter.

"Now she's going to lie down peacefully in a vast room. If I were to follow after her bawling and sobbing, it would show that I don't understand anything about fate. So I stopped. - Author: Zhuangzi
Going Too Far quotes by Zhuangzi
#50. The truth is I was addicted to being beautiful, and that's not something you just walk away from. Being addicted to all that attention, I had to quit cold turkey. I could shave my head, but hair grows back. Even bald, I might still look too good. Bald, I might get even more attention. There was the option of getting fat or drinking out of control to ruin my looks, but I wanted to be ugly, and I wanted my health. Wrinkles and aging looked too far off. There had to be some way to get ugly in a flash. I had to deal with my looks in a fast, permanent way or I'd always be tempted to go back. - Author: Chuck Palahniuk
Going Too Far quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#51. All experience is great providing you live through it.
If it kills you, you've gone too far. - Author: Alice Neel
Going Too Far quotes by Alice Neel
#52. I know that I've pushed him too far, but I don't care. As far as I'm concerned, I can't push him far enough, because right then, all I want is to break him. To break through that goddamned stubbornness and somehow get it through his head that the only way to save himself - to save us - is to put forward a defense. - Author: J. Kenner
Going Too Far quotes by J. Kenner
#53. Players have an in-season playing weight, and we have to be careful not to stray too far from it when we're not under the watchful eye of the nutritionist. This can be a problem when the food isn't being prepared and regulated by our cooking staff. - Author: D'Brickashaw Ferguson
Going Too Far quotes by D'Brickashaw Ferguson
#54. If you're not a race driver, stay the hell home. Don't come here and grumble about going too fast. Get the hell out of the race car if you've got feathers on your legs or butt. Put a kerosene rag around your ankles so the ants won't climb up and eat that candy ass. - Author: Dale Earnhardt
Going Too Far quotes by Dale Earnhardt
#55. When you're free from the shackles of solitude you never get the sense any mountain is too high to scale, or any horizon is too far to conquer. - Author: Saim .A. Cheeda
Going Too Far quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda
#56. I don't want to look too far ahead. The journey is what's happening right now, not what's on the finishing line. - Author: Sabirul Islam
Going Too Far quotes by Sabirul Islam
#57. Usually when you're steering a boat, it's like steering a car – you aim yourself in the right direction and move the tiller a little this way or that way on keep on course. Occasionally a stronger puff of wind or a sudden wave pushes you off – like a bump in the road or a car that swings too far into your lane. But you correct. You get back on course. And you start again with the little movements. It's easy. Anyone can do it. - Author: M.H. Herlong
Going Too Far quotes by M.H. Herlong
#58. Models walking down the street are very rarely recognized as such. It is often the same as it was for me: models were the school freaks. Way too thin and their eyes way too far apart. They were not the ideal. But then they put on fantastic clothes, have their make up done and you have this special beauty. It's a creation. - Author: Crystal Renn
Going Too Far quotes by Crystal Renn
#59. The past, boxed up and stacked out of sight. But never too far away - Author: Megan Miranda
Going Too Far quotes by Megan Miranda
#60. I really hope that we'll have a sustainable future on this planet, I really do. So I probably geek out mostly about learning more about how potentially we can hopefully make that happen, hopefully we're not too far lost. - Author: Ellen Page
Going Too Far quotes by Ellen Page
#61. I began to notice from the cars a tree with handsome rose-colored flowers. At first I thought it some variety of thorn; but it was not long before the truth flashed on me, that this was my long-sought Crab-Apple. It was the prevailing flowering shrub or tree to be seen from the cars at that season of the year, - about the middle of May. But the cars never stopped before one, and so I was launched on the bosom of the Mississippi without having touched one, experiencing the fate of Tantalus. On arriving at St. Anthony's Falls, I was sorry to be told that I was too far north for the Crab-Apple. Nevertheless I succeeded in finding it about eight miles west of the Falls; touched it and smelled it, and secured a lingering corymb of flowers for my herbarium. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Going Too Far quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#62. They put up the walls with no more to say,
Nobody stopped to ask why it was done.
The stream was too far and the rain was too high,
So into the city the river did run.
Because of the architect the buildings fell down,
Smothered or drowned all the seeds which were sown.
I wish I were somewhere, but not in this town.
Maybe the ocean next time around.

from "Next Time Around - Author: Sandy Denny
Going Too Far quotes by Sandy Denny
#63. Patrick shakes his head and we're both on the verge of tears then, like we've finally destroyed each other, finally eaten each other alive. We're never coming back from this; I know it. Both of us have finally gone too far. - Author: Katie Cotugno
Going Too Far quotes by Katie Cotugno
#64. When you first looked at me
I forgot to breathe
that moment marked my hardened heart
I vowed to never leave

And the touch of your skin
healed something deep within
that left me wanting more of you
the less I got the more it grew

Oh I couldn't help from falling, falling for you

So I'm standing here, oh girl you know
After all that we've been through we couldn't let it go
and as long as I'm alive, in your eyes I'll stare
holding you so close I'll solemnly swear
that I have fallen too far
that I have fallen too far, too far for you.
For you

When I finally found you
I finally found me
that day I won't soon forget
the reason for it all

I'll give you a new name
nothing in life will be the same
the story is now complete
our life and love is all we need

'Cause I couldn't help from falling
falling for you

So I'm standing here oh girl you know
After all we've been through we couldn't let it go
and as long as I'm alive, in your eyes I'll stare
holding you so close I'll solemnly swear
that I have fallen too far, that I have fallen too far
too far for you

My heart is beating
begging for you
this night will be
a dream come true
so fall, fall, fall into my arms

So I'm standing here oh girl you know
After all that we've been through we couldn't let it - Author: Abbi Glines
Going Too Far quotes by Abbi Glines
#65. I could see that troubling the waters was occasionally necessary to bring attention to the urgency of some problem. But this style of political expression sometimes becomes an end in itself and can lose potency if used routinely. If you shout too loudly and too often, people tend to cover their ears. Take it too far and you risk that nothing will be heard over the report of rifles and hoofbeats. - Author: Sonia Sotomayor
Going Too Far quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#66. Personal freedom and interpersonal relationships in marriage are positive aspects of growth in marriage. At the same time they can pose a serious danger in family harmony and degradation of some of the fundamental values if carried too far. - Author: Anonymous
Going Too Far quotes by Anonymous
#67. Should we use code names?" Hi popped up from the steps on which he'd been sitting. "Of course we should. Inside, refer to me as Rex Condor."
Hi winced in surprise as Shelton smacked the back of his head. "You?"
Shelton shrugged. "Had to be done. Ben's too far away."
Ben gave Shelton a thumbs-up. My eyes rolled skyward. - Author: Kathy Reichs
Going Too Far quotes by Kathy Reichs
#68. Everything was going too well. Something had to be wrong. - Author: Kim Harrison
Going Too Far quotes by Kim Harrison
#69. Apple"

Sometimes when eating an apple
I bite too far
and open the little room
the lovers have prepared,
and the seeds fall out
onto the kitchen floor
and I see
that they are tear-shaped. - Author: Jay Leeming
Going Too Far quotes by Jay Leeming
#70. A drunken party girl and her equally drunken escort got onto the elevator at that moment. The girl spotted Drake and lurched toward him, an inviting smile on her face as she thrust her barely concealed breasts at him. "Hello, handsome. Would you hold me against you if I told you it was beautiful?"

I pushed myself between her and Drake. "He's very handsome, isn't he? And verytaken."

"Fat bitch," she snapped, sulking for a moment until she spotted Pál. Her companion slouched against the wall of the elevator, too far gone to care, I guess.

The door opened at our floor and we exited, leaving the drunken woman to pout as Pál avoided her grasp. I stopped just outside the door, pulled on Drake's fire, and set alight a ring at her feet. She shrieked and flapped her arms wildly as the doors started to close. I drew a quick ward on them, and before the outer doors blocked my way, mentally stamped out the fire. I turned to find Drake watching me with crossed arms and a cocked eyebrow.

"What?" I asked, trying unsuccessfully to bat my eyelashes at him.

"You locked them in there with fire?"

"There was a fire extinguisher," I said. "Of course, she's probably too drunk to notice it or know how to use it, but that's hardly my problem."

Drake continued to give me the Eyebrow of Much Displeasure.

"There were sprinklers as well. They're sure to go off at some point…oh, for heaven's sake, Drake! What sort of p - Author: Katie MacAlister
Going Too Far quotes by Katie MacAlister
#71. The white man had invented glasses which made objects too near or too far, cameras, telescopes, spyglasses, objects which put glass between living and vision. It was the image he sought to possess, not the texture, the living warmth, the human closeness. - Author: Anais Nin
Going Too Far quotes by Anais Nin
#72. As it happens" said my uncle," I intended to make an appearance at the met today anyway. Inspector Lestrade has been bumbling through another investigation, and I decided it would be best to offer my assistance before he travels too far down an incorrect deductive path- and note that I use the term deductive liberally. I don`t belive Lestrade could deduce in which direction a horse crossed the street even if he came upon a pile of its dung!"

Going Too Far quotes by Colleen Gleason
#73. To come up short when you reach too far is not such a bad thing rather than not to reach at all, right? - Author: David Twohy
Going Too Far quotes by David Twohy
#74. Our party may have swung too far right at various times. - Author: Ed Gillespie
Going Too Far quotes by Ed Gillespie
#75. There's no such thing as too far. If it works it's funny, if it doesn't work it's too far, it's stupid. Really there's no such thing as "too far." You're joining the politically correct when you use words like "too far." You don't want to join the army of politically correct. - Author: Mel Brooks
Going Too Far quotes by Mel Brooks
#76. The art of life is to deal with one's problems as they arise; rather than destoy your spirit by worrying about them too far in advance. - Author: Robert Harris
Going Too Far quotes by Robert Harris
#77. His church is the old one at the edge of town, and I now realize why he's chosen to live here. The church is too far away for him to really help anyone, so this is the best place for him. It's everywhere, on all sides and angles. This is where the father needs to be. Not in some church, gathering dust. - Author: Markus Zusak
Going Too Far quotes by Markus Zusak
#78. Here's the truth: No matter what happened on the stage tonight, no matter where you went when you drove out of here, no matter where you end up, no matter what happens, what you become, what you gain, what you lose, whether you succeed or fail, stand or fall, no matter what you dip your hands into...no gone is too far gone.

You can always come home.

And when you do, you'll find me standing right here, arms wide, eyes searching for your return.

I love you. - Author: Charles Martin

#79. I am too old to fawn upon a nurse,
Too far in years to be a pupil now. - Author: William Shakespeare
Going Too Far quotes by William Shakespeare
#80. If two lives join, there is oft a scar. They are one and one, with a shadowy third; One near one is too far. - Author: Robert Browning
Going Too Far quotes by Robert Browning
#81. I love weights, but it's too far to get to the gym. So I make the farm my gym: I split wood and haul tires and do work on the farm, and that's sort of my weight training portion. - Author: Ann Bancroft
Going Too Far quotes by Ann Bancroft
#82. Indeed, when God's glory dwells in me, there is nothing too far away, nothing too painful, nothing too strange or too familiar that it cannot contain and renew by its touch. Every time I recognize the glory of God in me and give it space to manifest itself to me, all that is human can be brought there and nothing will be the same again. - Author: Henri Nouwen
Going Too Far quotes by Henri Nouwen
#83. When the world begins to overwhelm you, it is because you are looking too far from your own path. Do not grieve for those you do not know. Do not suffer for those you cannot help. Do not take into your heart the millions around the world. Compassion is learned in the context of your individual life. Respond fully and openly to those who present themselves to you. They are the guardians and guideposts of your unique lessons. - Author: Zoe Nicholson
Going Too Far quotes by Zoe Nicholson
#84. At sea, sometimes, if you take a ship too far from land and the wind rises and the tide sucks with a venomous force and the waves splinter white above the shield-pegs, you have no choice but to go where the gods will. - Author: Bernard Cornwell
