Matthus West quotes by Keith Carradine

Matthus West quotes by Kasie West
#4. Every sunset which I witness inspires me with the desire to go to a west as distant and as fair as that into which the Sun goes down. He appears to migrate westward daily and tempt us to follow him. He is the Great Western Pioneer whom the nations follow. We dream all night of those mountain ridges in the horizon, though they may be of vapor only, which were last gilded by his rays. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Matthus West quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#5. The contemporary Japanese directors who are well-known in the West - say, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Takeshi Kitano, Naomi Kawase - are mostly unknown to Japanese, particularly of the younger generation. - Author: Hirokazu Koreeda

Matthus West quotes by Nathanael West
#7. I fervently believe that people shouldn't stay in bad relationships just because of some artificial rom-com notion of true love being "forever." In fact, I think that the pressure of conforming to that framework ruins-literally RUINS-a lot of people's lives. - Author: Lindy West
Matthus West quotes by Lindy West
#8. It is not easy to get rid of weeds; but it is easy, by a process of neglect, to ruin your food crops and let them revert to their primitive state of wildness. [ ... ] In political civilization, the state is an abstraction and the relationship of men utilitarian. Because it has no roots in sentiments, it is so dangerously easy to handle. Half a century has been enough for you to master this machine; and there are men among you, whose fondness for it exceeds their love for the living ideals which were born with the birth of your nation and nursed in your centuries. It is like a child who in the excitement of his play imagines he likes his playthings better than his mother. - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Matthus West quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#9. My history was the Western. I grew up with the Lone Ranger, the Cisco Kid and Bonanza. I felt as much a child of the West as someone born in Montana or Wyoming. - Author: Clive Sinclair
Matthus West quotes by Clive Sinclair
#10. I'd love to try to sell a blank white canvas to an art dealer. And when he asks what it is, I'd tell him, "It's a landscape painting of Key West, from the perspective of an optimistic blind man. - Author: Jarod Kintz
Matthus West quotes by Jarod Kintz
#11. Aligning your body clock to the new environment requires a phase shift. It takes one day per time zone to shift. Advance or retard your body clock as many days before your trip as the number of time zones you'll be crossing. Before traveling east, get into sunlight early in the day. Before traveling west, avoid sunlight early by keeping the curtains drawn, and instead expose yourself to bright light in the evening, to simulate what would be late afternoon sun in your destination. Once you're on the plane, if you're westbound, keep the overhead reading lamp on, even if it is your home bedtime. When you arrive in the western city, exercise lightly by taking a walk in the sun. That sunlight will delay the production of melatonin in your body. If you're on an eastbound plane, wear eye shades to cover your eyes two hours or so before sunset in your destination city, to acclimate yourself to the new "dark" time. - Author: Daniel J. Levitin
Matthus West quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#12. Education is soul crafting. - Author: Cornel West
Matthus West quotes by Cornel West

Matthus West quotes by Cameron West
#14. Deep down, I'm just a West Virginia hillbilly. - Author: Brad Paisley
Matthus West quotes by Brad Paisley
#15. The communists have lost the cold war, but the west has not yet won it. - Author: Richard M. Nixon
Matthus West quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#16. Arosteguy poured more sake for both of them. "I love warm sake. How brilliant to create a drink at body temperature." He shook his head. "The Japanese. Feared by the West for so long, and now fading into their beloved sunrise. Or sunset. First militarily, then economically, and now, only gastronomically. And I need to become Japanese at a time when everyone wants to become Chinese. The Chinese call the Japanese 'the little people,' I've been told. That could have to do with the miniaturization of island species. I must do a study. - Author: David Cronenberg
Matthus West quotes by David Cronenberg
#17. There are not many places left in the United States where people can get off the computer, stop filing tax returns, and in effect become invisible. The rain forests in the Cascades and parts of West Montana come to mind, and perhaps the 'Glades still offer hope to those who wish to resign from modern times. The other place is the Atchafalaya Basin. - Author: James Lee Burke
Matthus West quotes by James Lee Burke
#18. The daemon wind died down, and the bloated, fungoid moon sank reddeningly in the west. - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Matthus West quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#19. If he's going to start coming around more, I need to find some flaws to focus on. I study him for a moment but come up empty. He's flawless. Not even a single zit. New strategy. I will not look at him. - Author: Kasie West
Matthus West quotes by Kasie West
#20. I read a lot of fantasy. I adored 'Anne of Green Gables'. But my favourite books as a child were probably Laura Ingalls Wilder's 'Little House' series, about a pioneer family in the mid-19th-century American west. I often thought of them as I was writing 'The Last Runaway'. - Author: Tracy Chevalier
Matthus West quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#21. A car, a blue convertible, sleek and desirable, came sweeping west out of Beverly Hills along the, as I understand it, gracious curves of Sunset Boulevard. Anybody seeing such a car would have wanted it. Obviously. It was designed to make you want it. If people had turned out not to want it very much, the makers would have redesigned it and redesigned it until they did. The world is now full of things like this, which is, of course, why everybody is in such a permanent state of want. - Author: Douglas Adams
Matthus West quotes by Douglas Adams
#22. I used to comb my hair back and do stupid stuff. - Author: Shane West
Matthus West quotes by Shane West
#23. Memories have to be our most painful blessing. - Author: Kanye West
Matthus West quotes by Kanye West
#24. My commitment falters. "It comes out. Twenty-one washes." That's not what I intended to say. The plan was to put my hand on my hip and say, "It's my hair. I can do what I want with it." That's what brave, angsty teenagers say after they do something rebellious. But I'm pretty sure those teenagers didn't ever have to answer to someone like my mother. I'm also sure I'm neither brave nor angsty. - Author: Kasie West
Matthus West quotes by Kasie West
#25. I am happy making the films I make and I would like the West to be impressed with what we do from India. - Author: Shahrukh Khan
Matthus West quotes by Shahrukh Khan
#26. The daily disappearance and the subsequent rise of the sun appeared to many of the ancients as a true resurrection; thus, while the east came to be regarded as the source of light and warmth, happiness and glory, the west was associated with darkness and chill, decay and death. This led to the custom of burying the dead so as to face the east when they rose again, and of building temples and shrines with an opening toward the east. To effect this, Vitruvius, two thousand years ago, gave precise rules, which are still followed by Christian architects. - Author: Isaac Newton
Matthus West quotes by Isaac Newton
#27. If my chair collapses under me right now, people will assume it's because I'm fat. But if your chair collapses under you, it's because you sat in a broken chair. - Author: Lindy West
Matthus West quotes by Lindy West
#28. The history of the two halves of post-war Europe cannot be told in isolation from one another. The legacy of the Second World War - and the pre-war decades and the war before that - forced upon the governments and peoples of east and west Europe alike some hard choices about how best to order their affairs so as to avoid any return to the past. One option - to pursue the radical agenda of the popular front movements of the 1930s - was initially very popular in both parts of Europe (a reminder that 1945 was never quite the fresh start that it sometimes appears). In eastern Europe some sort of radical transformation was unavoidable. There could be no possibility of returning to the discredited past. What, then, would replace it? Communism may have been the wrong solution, but the dilemma to which it was responding was real enough.
In the West the prospect of radical change was smoothed away, not least thanks to American aid (and pressure). The appeal of the popular-front agenda - and of Communism - faded: both were prescriptions for hard times and in the West, at least after 1952, the times were no longer so hard. And so, in the decades that followed, the uncertainties of the immediate post-war years were forgotten. But the possibility that things might take a different turn - indeed, the likelihood that they would take a different turn - had seemed very real in 1945; it was to head off a return of the old demons (unemployment, Fascism, German militarism, war, revolution) - Author: Tony Judt
Matthus West quotes by Tony Judt
#29. Keep a diary, and someday it'll keep you. - Author: Mae West
Matthus West quotes by Mae West
#30. When the culture of the East, its chief characteristic, is added to the strength of body and the strength of mind of the agricultural center, its special contribution, and these two great characteristics are constantly imbued with the spirit of independence and love of liberty which lives in the hearts of the dwellers of the mountains, their main quality added to the national character, there is every reason to believe that we shall have a people and institutions such as will be permanent; with such wealth of resources, of such high education and intelligence, and of such vitality, of such longevity, of such devotion to freedom and hostility to centralization and tyranny as shall enable this Nation of ours to stand indefinitely; and to maintain in the future years its manifest destiny of leading the peoples and nations of earth in the principles of free government, constitutional security and individual liberty. Under these and under these alone, the faculties, the aspirations and inspirations of mankind may be unfolded into their full flowering to the fruition of an ever greater and more humane civilization. - Author: Charles Edwin Winter
Matthus West quotes by Charles Edwin Winter
#31. When she moved away from him now it didn't stink of retreat. Instead it felt as though she had seized the high ground as she sat gracefully on the ledge of the window. She crossed her long legs and her short dress hiked up another inch. The night sky - vast and open without any tall buildings blocking its reach - seemed to both swallow her and retreat from the immensity of her presence. - Author: Armada West
Matthus West quotes by Armada West
#32. If you're not very busy, a grown man in the uniform of a Western Union boy should make you feel a little sick. - Author: Nathanael West
Matthus West quotes by Nathanael West
#33. Perspective is a bitch when it slaps you in the face, after the fact - Author: Madeline Sheehan
Matthus West quotes by Madeline Sheehan
#34. Studentdom, he felt, must pass its own Examinations and define its own Commencement--a slow, most painful process, made the more anguishing by bloody intelligences like the Bonifacists of Siegfrieder College. Yet however it seemed at times that men got nowhere, but only repeated class by class the mistakes of their predecessors, two crucial facts about them were at once their hope and the limitation of their possibility, so he believed. One was their historicity: the campus was young, the student race even younger, and by contrast with the whole of past time, the great collegiate cultures had been born only yesterday. The other had to do with comparative cyclology, a field of systematic speculation he could not review for me just then, but whose present relevance lay in the correspondency he held to obtain between the life-history of individuals and the history of studentdom in general. As the embryologists maintained that ontogeny repeats phylogeny, so, Max claimed, the race itself--and on a smaller scale, West-Campus culture--followed demonstrably--in capital letters, as it were, or slow motion--the life-pattern of its least new freshman. This was the basis of Spielman's Law--ontogeny repeats cosmogeny--and there was much more to it and to the science of cyclology whereof it was first principle. The important thing for now was that, by his calculations, West-Campus as a whole was in mid-adolescence...
'Look how we been acting,' he invited me, referring to intercollegia - Author: John Barth
Matthus West quotes by John Barth
#35. I quite enjoy fame, especially when you go to conventions in America where they treat you like a god with stretch limos and the whole fame thing, but then when you come back to Britain, you end up changing in a toilet in a theatre off West End and that's really good, because that is what it's about. - Author: Sylvester McCoy
Matthus West quotes by Sylvester McCoy
#36. Most good art is left wing. It's a moot point whether there is any good right-wing art. - Author: Samuel West
Matthus West quotes by Samuel West
#37. The very first hit factory was T.B. Harms, a Tin Pan Alley publishing company overseen by Max Dreyfus. With staff writers like Jerome Kern, George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Richard Rodgers, T.B. Harms was the dominant publisher of popular music in the early twentieth century. Dreyfus called his writers "the boys" and installed pianos for them to compose on around the office on West Twenty-Eighth, the street that gave Tin Pan Alley its name, allegedly for the tinny-sounding pianos passersby heard from the upper-story windows of the row houses. The sheet-music sellers also employed piano players in their street-level stores, who would perform the Top 40 of the 1920s for browsing customers. - Author: John Seabrook
Matthus West quotes by John Seabrook
#38. We are those fools who could not rest
In the dull earth we left behind,
But burned with passion for the West,
And drank strange frenzy from its wind.
The world where wise men live at ease
Fades from our unregretful eyes,
And blind across uncharted seas
We stagger on our enterprise - Author: Anonymous
Matthus West quotes by Anonymous
#39. When Janie looked out of her door she saw the drifting mists gathered in the west
that cloud field of the sky
to arm themselves with thunders and march forth against the world. Louder and higher and lower and wider the sound and motion spread, mounting, sinking, darking. - Author: Zora Neale Hurston
Matthus West quotes by Zora Neale Hurston
#40. Amin knew that neither West nor East would criticize him for fear that he would support the other side. He felt he was untouchable and he said so openly. - Author: Ryszard Kapuscinski
Matthus West quotes by Ryszard Kapuscinski
#41. I must say that the United States, of all the countries of the West, is the least guilty and has done the most in order to prevent it. The United States has helped Europe to win the First and the Second World Wars. It twice raised Europe from postwar destruction - twice - for ten, twenty, thirty years it has stood as a shield protecting Europe while European countries counted their nickels to avoid paying for their armies (better yet, to have none at all), to avoid paying for armaments, thinking about how to leave NATO, knowing that in any case America would protect them. These counties started it all, despite their thousand year old civilization and culture, even though they are closer to the danger and should have seen it more clearly. - Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Matthus West quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#42. I have been told that I'm easy to work with because I have an easy personality. - Author: Cameron West
Matthus West quotes by Cameron West
#43. Oh am I late? No, I already graduated
And you can live through anything if Magic made it
They say I talk with so much emphasis
Ooh they so sensitive - Author: Kanye West
Matthus West quotes by Kanye West
#44. LOOK back on time with kindly eyes, He doubtless did his best; How softly sinks his trembling sun In human nature's west! - Author: Emily Dickinson
Matthus West quotes by Emily Dickinson
#45. The plan is to engineer events, real and staged, that will create enormous fear in the countdown years to 2012. This includes a plan to start a third world war either by stimulating the Muslim world into a "holy war" against the West or by using the Chinese to cause global conflict. Maybe both. - Author: David Icke
Matthus West quotes by David Icke
#46. The true solitary ... will feel that he is himself only when he is alone; when he is in company he will feel that he perjures himself, prostitutes himself to the exactions of others; he will feel that time spent in company is time lost; he will be conscious only of his impatience to get back to his true life. - Author: Vita Sackville-West
Matthus West quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#47. Gamal Abdal Nasser, the nationalist leader of Egypt, was described by British Prime Minister Anthony Eden as an Egyptian Hitler. Then it carried on like that. Saddam Hussein became Hitler when he was no longer a friend of the West. Then Milosevic became Hitler. - Author: Tariq Ali
Matthus West quotes by Tariq Ali
