#1. This fellow is wise enough to play the fool;
And to do that well craves a kind of wit:
He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
The quality of persons, and the time,
And, like the haggard, check at every feather
That comes before his eye. This is a practise
As full of labour as a wise man's art
For folly that he wisely shows is fit;
But wise men, folly-fall'n, quite taint their wit. - Author: William Shakespeare
Practise quotes by William Shakespeare
#2. I started to practise shooting more seriously, more than once a week. I wasn't very good at it before, but I got a lot better. I've also become a little bit stronger on the tracks, too, which has increased my chances of success. - Author: Tora Berger
Practise quotes by Tora Berger
#3. From where we lived, to practise in St Louis was an hour-and-a-half drive each way, so that took a lot of the time. So really, our lives just took different paths. - Author: Jimmy Connors
Practise quotes by Jimmy Connors
#4. Though no participator in the joy of more vehement sport, I have a pleasure that I cannot reconcile to my abstract notions of the tenderness due to dumb creatures in the tranquil cruelty of angling. I can only palliate the wanton destructiveness of my amusement by trying to assure myself that my pleasure does not spring from the success of the treachery I practise toward a poor little fish, but rather from that innocent revelry in the luxuriance of summer life which only anglers enjoy to the utmost. - Author: Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Practise quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#5. Could we forbear dispute, and practise love, We should agree as angels do above. - Author: Edmund Waller
Practise quotes by Edmund Waller
#6. Religion is merely the law which binds man to his Creator: in purity it has but these elements
God, the Soul, and their Mutual Recognition; out of which, when put in practise, spring Worship, Love, and Reward. - Author: Lew Wallace
Practise quotes by Lew Wallace
#7. As concerning football, I protest unto you that it may rather be called a friendly kind of fight than a play or recreation - a bloody and murdering practise than a fellowly sport or pastime. - Author: Philip Stubbs
Practise quotes by Philip Stubbs
#8. First, Resolve upon, and daily endeavour to practise, a life of seriousness and strict sobriety. - Author: David Brainerd
Practise quotes by David Brainerd
#9. The techniques should not be practised simply so they can be performed in the kata. Since karate is a fighting art each technique and movement has its own meaning. The karateka must consider their meaning, how and why they are effective, and practise accordingly - Author: Shigeru Egami
Practise quotes by Shigeru Egami
#10. We all have a plan, those of us who love George Romero and Resident Evil. We all keep a sword under our bed, or a chainsaw in our garage. We know the quickest way to the mall, and we practise our stealthy moves when no-one else around is watching. We know where we'll get food, water and gasoline, and where we'll stay until society gets back on its feet. We know the zombies are coming. - Author: Hugh Howey
Practise quotes by Hugh Howey
#11. I know of no other practise which will make one more attractive in conversation than to be well-read in a variety of subjects. There is a great potential within each of us to go on learning. Regardless of our age, unless there be serious illness, we can read, study, drink in the writings of wonderful men and women. It is never too late to learn. - Author: Gordon B. Hinckley
Practise quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#12. So large a portion of those who hold much capital, instead of using their various advantages for the greatest good of those around them, employ the chief of them for mere selfish indulgences; thus inflicting as much mischief on themselves, as results to others from their culpable neglect. A great portion of the rich seem to be acting on the principle, that the more God bestows on them, the less are they under obligation to practise any self-denial, in fulfilling his benevolent plan of raising our race to intelligence and holiness. - Author: Catharine Beecher
Practise quotes by Catharine Beecher
#13. Given one has before oneself a strong, healthy, youth rich in spirited blood and a powerless, weak, cachectic old man scarcely capable of breathing. If now the physician wishes to practise the rejuvenating art on the latter, he should make silver tubes which fit into each other: open then the artery of the healthy person and introduce one of the tubes into it and fasten it into the artery; thereupon he opens also the artery of the ill person ... - Author: Andreas Libavius
Practise quotes by Andreas Libavius
#14. This is what works for me: I practise crop rotation with my creative endeavours. I've found that when the nitrogen runs out in the soil in one field, it's best to leave it fallow for a while and cultivate another. - Author: Andrew Macrae
Practise quotes by Andrew Macrae
#15. If you practise deceit it will burrow down into dark places and change you.

Spoken by Boaz to his daughter, Star. - Author: Rona V Flynn
Practise quotes by Rona V Flynn
#16. Cows are exceptionally gentle, loving beings who form strong bonds with their family and friends. Separating any mother from her child, as is routine practise within the dairy industry, inflicts upon both a cruelty beyond words. - Author: Mango Wodzak
Practise quotes by Mango Wodzak
#17. The painter who draws by practise and judgment of the eye without the use of reason is like the mirror which reproduces within itself all the objects which are set opposite to it without knowledge of the same. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Practise quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#18. Try to see the world as a great education in Love and do not quarrel with your lot in life. Do not complain because of your unending cares and anxieties, your mean surroundings, the small and sordid souls you are obliged to live with. That is God's way of making you practise. - Author: Paulo Coelho
Practise quotes by Paulo Coelho
#19. South Africa was to evolve into the most pernicious example of the criminal practise of colonial and white minority domination. - Author: Thabo Mbeki
Practise quotes by Thabo Mbeki
#20. Outwardly we should practise the shravakayana, inwardly the bodhisattvayana and secretly the vajrayana. - Author: Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse
Practise quotes by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse
#21. We must limit the running to and fro which most men practise, rambling about houses, theatres, and marketplaces. They mind other men's business, and always seem as though they themselves had something to do. If you ask one of them as he comes out of his own door, "Whither are you going?" he will answer, "By Hercules, I do not know: but I shall see some people and do something." They wander purposelessly seeking for something to do, and do, not what they have made up their minds to do, but what has casually fallen in their way. They move uselessly and without any plan, just like ants crawling over bushes, which creep up to the top and then down to the bottom again without gaining anything. Many men spend their lives in exactly the same fashion, which one may call a state of restless indolence. - Author: Seneca.
Practise quotes by Seneca.
#22. The big bankers of the world, who practise the terrorism of money, are more powerful than kings and field marshals, even more than the Pope of Rome himself. They never dirty their hands. They kill no-one: they limit themselves to applauding the show. - Author: Eduardo Galeano
Practise quotes by Eduardo Galeano
#23. Prema (love): practise that; develop that; spread that; and all the hatreds and jealousies of today will disappear. That is the duty of the Divine Life Society, here as well as elsewhere. - Author: Sathya Sai Baba
Practise quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#24. I maintain, then, that scientific psychology (and, it may be added, the psychology of the same kind that we all unconsciously practise when we try to "figure to ourselves" the stirrings of our own or others' souls) has, in its inability to discover or even to approach the essence of the soul, simply added one more to the symbols that collectively make up the Macrocosm of the culture-man. Like everything else that is no longer becoming but become, it has put a mechanism in place of an organism. We miss in its picture that which fills our feeling of life (and should surely be " soul " if anything is) the Destiny-quality, the necessary directedness of existence, the possibility that life in its course actualizes. I do not believe that the word "Destiny" figures in any psychological system whatsoever - and we know that nothing in the world could be more remote from actual life-experience and knowledge of men than a system without such elements. Associations, apperceptions, affections, motives, thought, feeling, will - all are dead mechanisms, the mere topography
of which constitutes the insignificant total of our "soul-science." One looked for Life and one found an ornamental pattern of notions. And the soul remained what it was, something that could neither be thought nor represented, the secret, the ever-becoming, the pure experience. - Author: Oswald Spengler
Practise quotes by Oswald Spengler
#25. Too many people start their day like a five-alarm fire. Instead, I teach people to start their day a little earlier than they usually do, and urge them to take the time to prepare, to practise, so when you get to work, it's show time and you're at your best. - Author: Robin S. Sharma
Practise quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#26. Long practise in driving a racing car at a hundred miles an hour or so gives first-class training in control and judging distances at high speed and helps tremendously in getting motor sense, which is rather the feel of your engine than the sound of it, a thing you get through your bones and nerves rather than simply your ears. - Author: Eddie Rickenbacker
Practise quotes by Eddie Rickenbacker
#27. Running alone can allow you to hit the mute button on the world ... and take full advantage of exercise's stress-busting benefits. 'Running alone can be a meditative experience where you get to really think and concentrate or completely clear your mind and zone out,' a psychotherapist Michelle Maidenberg says, ... 'You have to practise letting go of the inner chatter that can get in the way of what you want to accomplish,' sports psychologist Cindra Kamphoff says, 'And that's something you have to do on your own. - Author: Sara Maitland
Practise quotes by Sara Maitland
#28. There are only two sorts of doctors; those who practise with their brains, and those who practise with their tongues. - Author: William Osler
Practise quotes by William Osler
#29. When dealing with the excessively rich and privileged, you've got your two basic approaches. One is to go in hard and deliberately working class. A regional accent is always a plus in this. Seawoll has been known to deploy a Mancunian dialect so impenetrable that members of Oasis would have needed subtitles, and graduate entries with double firsts from Oxford practise a credible Estuary in the mirror and drop their glottals with gay abandon when necessary.

That approach only works if the subject suffers from residual middle-class guilt – unfortunately the properly posh, the nouveau riche and senior legal professionals are rarely prey to such weaknesses. For them you have to go in obliquely and with maximum Downton Abbey.

Fortunately for us we have just the man. - Author: Ben Aaronovitch
Practise quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#30. Practise makes perfect. - Author: Anonymous
Practise quotes by Anonymous
#31. If you wish to become significantly better at something, you can. - Author: ANDERS ERICSSON, ROBERT POOL
#32. You know the question: 'How do you get to Carnegie Hall?' Answer: 'Practise?' Well, in my case, I got there by not practising. I didn't finish my music degree. And when I got into the pop world, I decided not to conform because I figured that the point of being an artist was that you shouldn't be like anyone else. - Author: Rufus Wainwright
Practise quotes by Rufus Wainwright
#33. I always practise penalties, but what people don't understand is that you can never recreate that pressure situation that you're under. - Author: Alan Shearer
Practise quotes by Alan Shearer
#34. Now that a full flood of music has swept over our country, let Nikhil practise his scales, while we rouse the land with our cracked voices[.] - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Practise quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#35. Practise your knowledge, for knowledge without practice is a body without life - Author: Idries Shah
Practise quotes by Idries Shah
#36. A principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practise perfection, we devise every moment limits of its compromise in practice. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
Practise quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#37. His woolly grey hair, short thick body, air of perpetual busyness, suggested an industrious gnome conscripted into the service of the army; a gnome who also liked to practise considerable malice against the race of men with whom he mingled, by making as complicated as possible every transaction they had to execute through himself. - Author: Anthony Powell
Practise quotes by Anthony Powell
#38. When I'm given a role, the first thing I do is read the play over and over again. I scour the script and write down everything the character says about himself and everything that everyone else says about him. I immerse myself in my character and imagine what it might be like to be that person.
When I played Cassio in Othello I imagined what it would be like to be a lieutenant in the Venetian navy in 1604. I sat down with Ewan McGregor and Chiwetel Ejiofor and together we decided that Othello, Iago and Cassio had soldiery in their bones.
I took from the script that Cassio was talented and ambitious, with no emotional or physical guard - and that's how I played the part.
For me, acting is about recreating the circumstances that would make me feel how my character is feeling. In the dressing room, I practise recreating those circumstances in my head and I try to not get in the way of myself. For example, in act two of Othello, when Cassio is manipulated to fight Roderigo and loses his rank, some nights I would burst into tears; other nights I wouldn't but I would still feel the same emotion, night after night. Just as in life, the way we respond to catastrophe or death will be different every time because the process is unconscious.
By comparison, in Chekhov's Ivanov I played the young doctor, Lvov. Lvov was described as "a prig and a bigot … uprightness in boots … tiresome … completely sincere". His emotions were locked away. I worked around the key phrase: - Author: Tom Hiddleston
Practise quotes by Tom Hiddleston
#39. Writing is like a religion to those who don't practise, an act of faith for those who do. - Author: Chloe Thurlow
Practise quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#40. What do you always think about? What do you think you can do easily? What do you find peace in your heart to do? Watch those things carefully because among them is something on which you can turn the entire environment surrounding you for your success. - Author: Israelmore Ayivor
Practise quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#41. Goodwill. If anyone maintain that men ought to be compelled by fire and sword to profess certain doctrines, and conform to this or that exterior worship, without any regard had unto their morals; if anyone endeavour to convert those that are erroneous unto the faith, by forcing them to profess things that they do not believe and allowing them to practise things that the Gospel does not permit, it cannot be doubted indeed but such a one is desirous to have a numerous assembly joined in the same profession with himself; but that he principally intends by those means to compose a truly Christian Church is altogether incredible. - Author: John Locke
Practise quotes by John Locke
#42. Regular practise of yoga can help you face the turmoil of life with steadiness and stability - Author: B.K.S. Iyengar
Practise quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#43. We have limited time in our life, therefore we should try to teach ourselves, not to teach others. We should conquer ourselves, rather than conquer others. Whether coming or going, standing, sitting or lying down, our mind should be focused in this way. If we practise like this and develop mindfulness continuously, wisdom arises quickly and this is a fast way of practice. - Author: Ajahn Chah
Practise quotes by Ajahn Chah
#44. Jupiter will try to practise temperance but can - Author: Komilla Sutton
Practise quotes by Komilla Sutton

Practise quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Practise quotes by Lynn Davies
#52. I practise selective deafness to hurtful remarks. - Author: Scott Lynch
Practise quotes by Scott Lynch

Practise quotes by Bertrand Russell

She: I keep smiling even when I am tearing.

He: That is so difficult to do. Please tell me how to do it.

She: You already have that talent. You just need a little more practise! - Author: Avijeet Das
Practise quotes by Avijeet Das

Practise quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#56. We know that a large majority of the Australian society is extremely comfortable with a multicultural society, that we accept that living in a democracy means having a freedom to practise your religion within the limits of the law. - Author: Tim Soutphommasane
Practise quotes by Tim Soutphommasane
#57. desk simply to say: "Would you be willing to be parachuted into Greece next week?"' Woodhouse thought about it for a moment. 'There seemed no reason to say No, so I said Yes.'5 He reasoned that it would be a good opportunity to practise his Greek. - Author: Giles Milton
Practise quotes by Giles Milton
#58. If the nobles of the country really have the welfare of the people at heart, they should prevent and forbid music wherever it makes an appearance. For the fact that the people practise music has four disadvantages. The hungry are not fed, the cold are not clothed, the homeless are not sheltered and the desperate find no consolation. - Author: John Tilbury
Practise quotes by John Tilbury
#59. How Fortune piles her sports when she begins to practise them! - Author: Ben Jonson
Practise quotes by Ben Jonson
#60. No one can control their results. We can, however, control our attitude. When we practise compassion, it is most effective when it is unconditional and free from seeking an outcome – compassion is a matter of choice rather than a self-seeking action. And so, if we assist another human being from a place of presence and compassion, we are not looking to find our happiness off the back of others' suffering. Nor are we trying to control them. Compassion is a conscious choice rather than an emotional knee-jerk reaction. - Author: Christopher Dines
Practise quotes by Christopher Dines
#61. Essence Of Love"

Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, whether you are praying, working, driving, cooking, sleeping, eating, lying and even breathing or whatever, learn to be mindful of your thoughts, actions and speech.

Make it a natural way of life and realise the calmness within; feel the happiness that arises and know that anyone can attain this state of calmness. It is a practise that everyone should be with more awareness and see the difference in one self. It gives you hope and happiness when one is more calm, have more patience and tolerance towards others' behaviour and not being judgmental of them, thus creating a situation of harmony between one another.

From pettiness to nothing, from pride to humble, from ignorance to wisdom. Do this daily and you ease your suffering and cause happiness to yourself and others too.

Amitabha Buddha (Amituofo) - Author: Amitabha Buddha
Practise quotes by Amitabha Buddha
#62. I come from an alcoholic Irish background - I know where I was going! But I met my wife and started to practise Buddhism, which is a levelling experience for me, and there hasn't been a day I've missed in 40 years. I apply it to everything - to my work and relationships. I try to be a compassionate person. - Author: Patrick Duffy
Practise quotes by Patrick Duffy
#63. Do you wonder then that this man's behaviour used to puzzle me tremendously? He was an ordinary clergyman at that time as well as being Headmaster, and I would sit in the dim light of the school chapel and listen to him preaching about the Lamb of God and about Mercy and Forgiveness and all the rest of it and my young mind would become totally confused. I knew very well that only the night before this preacher had shown neither Forgiveness nor Mercy in flogging some small boy who had broken the rules.
So what was it all about? I used to ask myself.
Did they preach one thing and practise another, these men of God?
And if someone had told me at the time that this flogging clergyman was one day to become the Archbishop of Canterbury, I would never have believed it.
It was all this, I think, that made me begin to have doubts about religion and even about God. If this person, I kept telling myself, was one of God's chosen salesmen on earth, then there must be something very wrong about the whole business. - Author: Roald Dahl
Practise quotes by Roald Dahl
#64. Still our old question of the comparative advantage of justice and injustice has not been answered: Which is the more profitable, to be just and act justly and practise virtue, whether seen or unseen of gods and men, or to be unjust and act unjustly, if only unpunished and unreformed? In my judgment, Socrates, the question has now become ridiculous. We know that, when the bodily constitution is gone, life is no longer endurable, though pampered with all kinds of meats and drinks, and having all wealth and all power; and shall we be told that when the very essence of the vital principle is undermined and corrupted, life is still worth having to a man, if only he be allowed to do whatever he likes with the single exception that he is not to acquire justice and virtue, or to escape from injustice and vice; assuming them both to be such as we have described? - Author: Plato
Practise quotes by Plato
#65. You should know, my son, that that's what heroism is all about. No one's ever ready to be a hero - there's no way to prepare for it. Of course, you can practise till you're really good at running up to the gunport and have the knack of falling neatly across it on your chest - we teach all of that. But you can't teach anyone the actual inner act of heroism, it can only be performed. The more you wanted to live before, the better for the act of heroic sacrifice. - Author: Victor Pelevin
Practise quotes by Victor Pelevin
#66. If you were to show a piece of intelligible writing to a reasonable person and say to him: 'do you know its writer?' and he said 'no', he would be speaking truly. But if he said 'yes: its writer is a man living and powerful, hearing and seeing, sound of hand and knowledgeable in the practise of writing, and if I know all this from [the sample] how can I not know him?-he too would be speaking truly. Yet the saying of the one who said 'I do not know him' is more correct and true, for in reality he has not known him. Rather he only knows that intelligible writing requires a living writer, knowing, powerful, hearing, and seeing; yet he does not know the writer himself. Similarly, every creature knows only that this ordered and precisely disposed world requires an arranging, living, knowing, and powerful maker. - Author: Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
Practise quotes by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
#67. To repay evils with kindness is the religion I was taught to practise, and this will forever be my rule. - Author: John James Audubon
Practise quotes by John James Audubon
#68. I horse ride. I find it is the best way to maintain my fitness and stay physical. I have to practise anyway for my equestrian front. I do dressage and schooling too. I also do physical training where I work on my neck and upper body strength. Racing is a high endurance sport and you are in the car for a long time so this area is crucial. - Author: Liz Halliday
Practise quotes by Liz Halliday
#69. i woke up thinking the work was done
i would not have to practise today
how naive to think healing was that easy
when there is no end point
no finish line to cross
healing is everyday work - Author: Rupi Kaur
Practise quotes by Rupi Kaur
#70. Nothing consumes itself so much as generosity, because while you practise it you're losing the wherewithal to go on practising it. - Author: Niccolo Machiavelli
Practise quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#71. All my life I'd woken up to tennis, tennis, tennis. Even if I don't go to practise, I'm thinking about it all day. - Author: Serena Williams
Practise quotes by Serena Williams
#72. The people of Lancre wouldn't dream of living in anything other than a monarchy. They'd done so for thousands of years and knew that it worked. But they'd also found that it didn't do to pay too much attention to what the King wanted, because there was bound to be another king along in forty years or so and he'd be certain to want something different and so they'd have gone to all that trouble for nothing. In the meantime, his job as they saw it was to mostly stay in the palace, practise the waving, have enough sense to face the right way on coins and let them get on with the ploughing, sowing, growing and harvesting. It was, as they saw it, a social contract. They did what they always did, and he let them. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Practise quotes by Terry Pratchett
#73. Nothing so evil as money ever grew to be current among men. This lays cities low, this drives men from their homes, this trains and warps honest souls till they set themselves to works of shame; this still teaches folk to practise villainies, and to know every godless deed. But all the men who wrought this thing for hire have made it sure that, soon or late, they shall pay the price. - Author: Sophocles
Practise quotes by Sophocles
#74. Let every man practise the trade which he best understands. - Author: Marcus Tullius Cicero
Practise quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#75. Still at the table, engaged no doubt in some kind of arcane flirtation, she for practise, he in pathetic earnest. Toby - Author: Margaret Atwood
Practise quotes by Margaret Atwood
#76. Some know, but to know. Some know, to be known. Some know, to practise what they know. Now, to know, but to know - that is curiosity. To know, to be known - that is vain glory. But to know, to practise what we know - that is gospel duty. - Author: Matthew Mead
Practise quotes by Matthew Mead
#77. If we want to really see the Buddha, we should observe his virtuous qualities. Whatever he taught, we should practise it. Only bowing to him is not enough. We need to renounce, give up, stop, so that we may see the Buddha. - Author: Ajahn Chah
Practise quotes by Ajahn Chah
#78. Their heart does not allow them to practise duplicity: if they see their friend straying from the road, or committing any faults, they will speak to her about it; they cannot allow themselves to do anything else. - Author: Teresa Of Avila
Practise quotes by Teresa Of Avila
#79. It's important, according to me, to train in small doses so as to not lose the joy of playing chess. I personally think too many coaching and training classes may take away a child's interest in the game itself. The essential thing to do is practise often and, in case of a doubt, to consult a trainer. - Author: Viswanathan Anand
Practise quotes by Viswanathan Anand
#80. And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds?

Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)."

And the answer of his people was only that they said: "Drive them out of your town, these are indeed men who want to be pure (from sins)!"

Then We saved him and his family, except his wife; she was of those who remained behind (in the torment).

And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). Then see what was the end of the Mujrimun (criminals, polytheists, sinners, etc.)."
( A translation of Quran,7;80-84) - Author: Qur'an
Practise quotes by Qur'an
#81. What is the use of knowing everything, if you never actually practise it? They are forever cooking and never eating - Author: Anne Perry
Practise quotes by Anne Perry
#82. The mind of one who practises doesn't run away anywhere, it stays right there. Good, evil, happiness and unhappiness, right and wrong arise, and he knows them all. The meditator simply knows them, they don't enter his mind. That is, he has no clinging. He is simply the experiencer. - Author: Ajahn Chah
Practise quotes by Ajahn Chah
#83. Playing half court or even organising a practise game against another team is a great way to train. It ensures a tough session and is often the best way to learn what works and what doesn't - Author: Catherine Cox
Practise quotes by Catherine Cox
#84. Then, if women are to have the same duties as men, they must have the same nurture and education? Yes. The education which was assigned to the men was music and gymnastic. Yes. Then women must be taught music and gymnastic and also the art of war, which they must practise like the men? That is the inference, I suppose. I - Author: Plato
Practise quotes by Plato
#85. We certainly wouldn't practise carrying it now: that would be a bit like practising being wet, cold and hungry, which wouldn't achieve anything. - Author: Andy McNab
Practise quotes by Andy McNab
#86. Practise things you're good at. Keep on top of things you're not so good at, but be world-class at your best. Never think, 'I'm very good at this and that, I can leave those for a bit.' - Author: Brian O'Driscoll
Practise quotes by Brian O'Driscoll
#87. They only babble who practise not reflection. - Author: Edward Young
Practise quotes by Edward Young
#88. Be grateful to him who curses you, for he gives you a mirror to show what cursing is, also a chance to practise self-restraint; so bless him and be glad. Without exercise, power cannot come out; without the mirror, we cannot see ourselves. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Practise quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#89. In Australia we can take a playbook back to California from people who have actually adopted best practises, who have seen those practises play out over the years and plan for future droughts. - Author: Marc Levine
Practise quotes by Marc Levine
#90. And to forget one's own sharp absurd little personality, reputation and the rest of it, one should read; see outsiders; think more; write more logically; above all be full of work; and practise anonymity. Silence in company; or the quietest statement, not the showiest; is also "medicated" as the doctors say. It was an empty party, rather, last night. Very nice here, though. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Practise quotes by Virginia Woolf
#91. Take what you have learned, practise it, adapt it as necessary, and make it work for you. - Author: Lorraine Clissold
Practise quotes by Lorraine Clissold
#92. Witness the surprise of the average American: 'How is it possible that these people display and practise such a disregard for their own lives?' Is not the obverse of this surprise the rather sad fact that we, in First World countries, find it more and more difficult even to imagine a public or universal Cause for which we would be ready to sacrifice our life? - Author: Slavoj Zizek
Practise quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#93. If I stop practising, I will be an average singer. There are a lot of singers I know who hardly practise, yet sing well. - Author: Sonu Nigam
Practise quotes by Sonu Nigam
#94. Peace is something tangible. It silences the outgoing energy of the mind and feeds the aspiring heart. Peace is not merely the absence of quarreling and fighting. True peace is not affected by the roaring of the world, outer or inner. This sea of peace is at our command if we practise the spiritual life. - Author: Sri Chinmoy
Practise quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#95. Of him that hopes to be forgiven it is indispensably required that he forgive. It is, therefore, superfluous to urge any other motive. On this great duty eternity is suspended, and to him that refuses to practise it, the throne of mercy is inaccessible, and the Saviour of the world has been born in vain. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Practise quotes by Samuel Johnson
#96. Most men are more willing to indulge in easy vices than to practise laborious virtues. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Practise quotes by Samuel Johnson
#97. Common men talk bagfuls of religion but do not practise even a grain of it. The wise man speaks a little, even though his whole life is religion expressed in action. - Author: Ramakrishna
Practise quotes by Ramakrishna
#98. Each of us is leading a difficult life, and when we meet people we are seeing only a tiny part of the thinnest veneer of their complex, troubled existences. To practise anything other than kindness towards them, to treat them in any way save generously, is to quietly deny their humanity. - Author: Derren Brown
Practise quotes by Derren Brown
#99. Effort makes you. You will regret someday if you don't do your best now. Don't think it's too late but keep working on it. It may take time, but there's nothing that gets worse due to practising. So practise. You may get depressed, but its evidence that you are doing good. - Author: Jeon Jungkook
Practise quotes by Jeon Jungkook
#100. If you are seeking liberation, my son, shun the objects of the senses like poison. Practise tolerance, sincerity, compassion, contentment and truthfulness like nectar. - Author: Ashtavakra
Practise quotes by Ashtavakra
#101. Use sarcasm. This is a favourite weapon of mine ever since my PGCE (teacher training) days when, naturally, we were expressly forbidden to use it. The key, as with most things, is the manner of delivery. Practise until you can deliver the remarks with the utmost sincerity - Author: Frank Chalk
Practise quotes by Frank Chalk

#104. Such efforts show the truth of the remark of St. Ambrose: that the saints were no less liable than ourselves to fall into faults; but that they had greater care to practise virtue, and to correct the faults into which they fell. - Author: Candide Chalippe
Practise quotes by Candide Chalippe
#105. In short, devotion is simply a spiritual activity and liveliness by means of which Divine Love works in us, and causes us to work briskly and lovingly; and just as charity leads us to a general practice of all God's Commandments, so devotion leads us to practise them readily and diligently. And therefore we cannot call him who neglects to observe all God's Commandments either good or devout, because in order to be good, a man must be filled with love, and to be devout, he must further be very ready and apt to perform the deeds of love. And forasmuch as devotion consists in a high degree of real love, it not only makes us ready, active, and diligent in following all God's Commands, but it also excites us to be ready and loving in performing as many good works as possible, even such as are not enjoined upon us, but are only matters of counsel or inspiration. - Author: Francis De Sales
Practise quotes by Francis De Sales
#106. I'd had years of practise looking dumb when people threw out Greek names I didn't know. It's a skill of mine. Annabeth keeps telling me to read a book of Greek myths, but I don't see the need. It's easier just to have folks explain stuff. - Author: Rick Riordan
Practise quotes by Rick Riordan
#107. It's vital always to bear in mind that we practise for the sake of all other beings, and that the enormity of this aspiration is what makes dharma practice both extremely powerful and inexhaustible, virtually guaranteeing that the result will be infinitely beneficial. - Author: Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse
Practise quotes by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse
#108. Women decide the larger questions of life correctly and quickly, not because they are lucky guessers, not because they are divinely inspired, not because they practise a magic inherited from savagery, but simply and solely because they have sense. They see at a glance what most men could not see with searchlights and telescopes ... They are the supreme realists of the race. - Author: H.L. Mencken

#110. Aristotle insists that habituation, not teaching, is the route to moral virtue (II. 1). We must practise doing good actions, not just read about virtue. - Author: Aristotle.
Practise quotes by Aristotle.
#111. I haven't seen anyone for years," he said, "not anyone. I can hardly remember how to speak. I keep forgetting words. I practise, you see. I practise by talking to ... talking to ... what are those things people think you're mad if you talk to? Like George the Third."
"Kings?" suggested Ford.
"No, no," said Arthur. "The things he used to talk to. We're surrounded by them for Heaven's sake. I've planted hundreds myself. They all died. Trees! I practise by talking to trees. What's that for?"
Ford still had his hand stuck out. Arthur looked at it with incomprehension.
"Shake," prompted Ford. - Author: Douglas Adams

#115. When? At this time, while you have all the opportunities, if you do not do your best to achieve the pure, stainless path to enlightenment when will you do it? If you don't meditate, don't practise the graduated path to enlightenment, especially bodhicitta, in this life, then when? When will you practise? When will you have this realization? If, in this life, you don't achieve renunciation, bodhicitta and sunyata, as well as the two stages of tantra, when will you? When will you have these attainments? When will you become enlightened? When will you perform perfect work for sentient beings? - Author: Thubten Zopa Rinpoche
Practise quotes by Thubten Zopa Rinpoche
#116. Those whose lives have been an exercise in the pitting of their wits, or the selling of their talents, time and strength, to those who pay the piper, can even in their old age, even with their wits partially gone, automatically practise defences, and appeal for aid. But not so those who have never asked, who have never bargained. - Author: Norah Hoult
Practise quotes by Norah Hoult

Practise quotes by Danika Stone
#121. This body is the boat which will carry us to the other shore of the ocean of life. It must be taken care of. Unhealthy persons cannot be Yogis. Mental laziness makes us lose all lively interest in the subject, without which there will neither be the will nor the energy to practise. Doubts will arise in the mind about the truth of the science, however strong one's intellectual conviction may be, until certain peculiar psychic experiences come, as hearing or seeing at a distance, etc. These glimpses strengthen the mind and make the student persevere. Falling away ... when obtained. Some days or weeks when you are practicing, the mind will be calm and easily concentrated, and you will find yourself progressing fast. All of a sudden the progress will stop one day, and you will find yourself, as it were, stranded. Persevere. All progress proceeds by such rise and fall. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Practise quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#122. It is difficult to uproot fully grown plants; they become diseased and often perish. In Russia now they practise winter transplanting: a tree is dug up while it is in a dormant condition. In spring it comes back to life in a new place. A good method, especially as a tree has no memory. - Author: Ilya Ehrenburg
Practise quotes by Ilya Ehrenburg
#123. When an evil-doer, seeing you practise goodness, comes and maliciously insults you, you should patiently endure it and not feel angry with him, for the evil-doer is insulting himself by trying to insult you. - Author: Gautama Buddha

Practise quotes by Idries Shah
#125. There are but three beings worthy of respect: the priest, the warrior and the poet. To know, to kill and to create. The rest of mankind may be taxed and drudged, they are born for the stable, that is to say, to practise what they call professions. - Author: Charles Baudelaire

#127. Jellicle Cats are black and white
Jellicle Cats are rather small
Jellicle Cats are merry and bright
And pleasant to hear when they caterwaul.
Jellicle Cats have cheerful faces,
Jellicle Cats have bright black eyes;
They like to practise their airs and graces
And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise. - Author: T. S. Eliot
Practise quotes by T. S. Eliot
#128. Cecy," he said, and closed the distance between them, though it was not much, and then he was kissing her-his hands awkward around her shoulders at first, slipping on the stiff taffeta of her gown before his fingers slipped behind her head, tangling in her soft, warm hair. She stiffened in surprise before softening against him, the seam of her lips parting as he tasted the sweetness of her mouth. When she drew away at last, he felt light-headed. "Cecy?" He said again, his voice hoarse. "Five," she said. Her lips and cheeks were flushed, but her gaze was steady. "Five?" He echoed blankly. "My rating," she said, and smiled at him. "Your skill and technique may, perhaps, require work, but the native talent is certainly there. What you require is practise." "And you are willing to be my tutor?" "I should be very insulted if you chose another," she said, and leaned up to kiss him again. - Author: Cassandra Clare

#130. It is through this practise of gratitude that I discovered something quite profound: shyness doesn't survive when your cup is overflowing with gratitude. It doesn't matter if you're grateful for things that have happened or things that have yet to come to fruition, gratitude grows Quiet Confidence. - Author: Joel Annesley
Practise quotes by Joel Annesley
#131. All live by seeming.
The beggar begs with it, and the gay courtier
Gains land and title, rank and rule, by seeming;
The clergy scorn it not, and the bold soldier
Will eke with it his service.
All admit it,
All practise it; and he who is content
With showing what he is, shall have small credit
In church, or camp, or state.
So wags the world. - Author: Walter Scott
Practise quotes by Walter Scott
#132. I have learned from Jesus Christ Himself what charity is, and how we ought to practise it; for He says: "By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye love one another." Never can I, therefore, please myself in the hope that I may obtain the name of a servant of Christ if I possess not a true and unfeigned charity within me. - Author: Saint Basil
Practise quotes by Saint Basil
#133. Ages of prolonged uncertainty, while they are compatible with the highest degree of saintliness in a few, are inimical to the prosaic every-day virtues of respectable citizens. There seems no use in thrift, when tomorrow all your savings may be dissipated; no advantage in honesty, when the man towards whom you practise it is pretty sure to swindle you; no point in steadfast adherence to the cause, when no cause is important or has a chance of stable victory; no argument in favour of truthfulness, when only supple tergiversation makes the preservation of life and fortune possible. The man whose virtue has no source except a purely terrestrial prudence will in such a world, become an adventurer if he has the courage, and, if not, will seek obscurity as a timid time-server. - Author: Bertrand Russell
Practise quotes by Bertrand Russell

Practise quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#136. Everyone in your life is a 'practise person.' How you react to them allows you to see what you have to work on within yourself. - Author: Susan Jeffers
Practise quotes by Susan Jeffers
#137. But virtue, by the bare statement of its actions, can so affect men's minds as to create at once both admiration of the things done and desire to imitate the doers of them. The goods of fortune we would possess and would enjoy; those of virtue we long to practise and exercise. We are content to receive the former from others, the latter we wish others to experience from us. Moral good is a practical stimulus; it is no sooner seen, than it inspires an impulse to practice, and influences the mind and character not by a mere imitation which we look at, but by the statement of the fact creates a moral purpose which we form. - Author: Plutarch
Practise quotes by Plutarch
#138. There is a quiet, open place in the depths of the mind, to which we can go many times in the day and lift up our soul in praise, thankfulness and conscious unity. With practise this God-ward turn of the mind becomes an almost constant direction, underlying all our other activities. - Author: Kenneth E. Boulding
Practise quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding

Practise quotes by Gautama Buddha
#140. While performing the great majority of the actions in their life, people are totally unaware. We tend to go through our daily activities mechanically. We talk without real purpose. We do things without even knowing that we do them. We are not really present to what we are doing. Even if we practise being aware, entire portions of our days can elapse before we retrieve our thread of awareness. In short, we are not living our life, we are sleeping it. - Author: Samuel Sagan
Practise quotes by Samuel Sagan

Practise quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#142. When you speak of the favour of the gods, we may as fairly hope for that as yourselves; neither our pretensions nor our conduct being in any way contrary to what men believe of the gods, or practise among themselves. Of the gods we believe, and of men we know, that by a necessary law of their nature they rule wherever they can. And it is not as if we were the first to make this law, or to act upon it when made: we found it existing before us, and shall leave it to exist for ever after us; all we do is to make use of it, knowing that you and everybody else, having the same power as we have, would do the same as we do. Thus, as far as the gods are concerned, we have no fear and no reason to fear that we shall be at a disadvantage. But when we come to your notion about the - Author: Thucydides
Practise quotes by Thucydides
#143. Keep his mind on the inner life. He thinks his conversion is something inside him, and his attention is therefore chiefly turned at present to the state of his own mind--or rather to that very expurgated version of them which is all you should allow him to see. Encourage this. Keep his mind off the most elementary duties of directing it to the most advanced and spiritual ones. Aggravate the most useful human characteristics, the horror and neglect of the obvious. You must bring him to a condition in which he can practise self-examination for an hour without discovering any of those facts about himself which are perfectly clear to anyone who has ever lived in the same house with him or worked in the same office.

2. It is, no doubt, impossible to prevent his praying for his mother, but we have means of rendering the prayers innocuous. Make sure that they are always very 'spiritual', that is is always concerned with the state of her soul and never with her rhuematism. Two advantages will follow. In the first place, his attention will be kept on what he regards are her sins, by which, with a little guidance from you, he can be induced to mean any of her actions which are inconvenient or irritating to himself. Thus you can keep rubbing the wounds of the day a little sorer even while he is on his knees; the operation is not at all difficult and you will find it very entertaining. In the second place, since his ideas about her soul will be very crude and often erroneous, - Author: C.S. Lewis

#147. How long shall we sit in our porticoes practising idle and musty virtues, which any work would make impertinent? As if one were tobegin the day with long-suffering, and hire a man to hoe his potatoes; and in the afternoon go forth to practise Christian meekness and charity with goodness aforethought! - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Practise quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#148. I have already explained to you that what is out of the common is usually a guide rather than a hindrance. In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backwards. That is a very useful accomplishment, and a very easy one, but people do not practise it much. In the every-day affairs of life it is more useful to reason forwards, and so the other comes to be neglected. There are fifty who can reason synthetically for one who can reason analytically. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Practise quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#149. Moved by their selfish desires, people seek after fame and glory. But when they have acquired it, they are already stricken in years. If you hanker after worldly fame and practise not the Way, your labors are wrongfully applied and your energy is wasted. It is like unto burning an incense stick. However much its pleasing odor be admired, the fire that consumes is steadily burning up the stick. - Author: Gautama Buddha
Practise quotes by Gautama Buddha

Practise quotes by Richard Bandler
#151. Yet Poe was a drunkard, and Coleridge an addict, and Byron a rake, and Verlaine a degenerate. You have to separate the man from the thing. The genius has to pay a ransom for his genius in the instability of his temperament. A great medium is even more sensitive than a genius. Many are beautiful in their lives. Some are not. The excuse for them is great. They practise a most exhausting profession and stimulants are needed. Then they lose control. But their physical mediumship carries on all the same. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Practise quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle

#154. he should accept with patience the tribulation which has actually been dealt out to him - the present anxiety and suspense. It is about this that he is to say 'Thy will be done', and for the daily task of bearing this that the daily bread will be provided. It is your business to see that the patient never thinks of the present fear as his appointed cross, but only of the things he is afraid of. Let him regard them as his crosses: let him forget that, since they are incompatible, they cannot all happen to him, and let him try to practise fortitude and patience to them all in advance. For real resignation, at the same moment, to a dozen different and hypothetical fates, is almost impossible, - Author: C.S. Lewis
Practise quotes by C.S. Lewis
#155. Now you see for yourself that all those who do not at at all times trust God and do not in all their works or sufferings, life and death, trust in His favor, grace and good-will, but seek His favor in other things or in themselves, do not keep this Commandment, and practise real idolatry, even if they were to do the works of all the other Commandments, and in addition had all the prayers, fasting, obedience, patience, chastity, and innocence of all the saints combined. - Author: Martin Luther

Practise quotes by Erin O'Connor
#165. Faith, hope and charity go together. Hope is practised through the virtue of patience, which continues to do good even in the face of apparent failure, and through the virtue of humility, which accepts God's mystery and trusts him even at times of darkness. Faith tells us that God has given his Son for our sakes and gives us the victorious certainty that it is really true: God is love! It thus transforms our impatience and our doubts into the sure hope that God holds the world in his hands and that, as the dramatic imagery of the end of the Book of Revelation points out, in spite of all darkness he ultimately triumphs in glory. Faith, which sees the love of God revealed in the pierced heart of Jesus on the Cross, gives rise to love. Love is the light - and in the end, the only light - that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practise it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world - this is the invitation I would like to extend with the present Encyclical. - Author: Benedict XVI
Practise quotes by Benedict XVI
#166. He who the sword of heaven will bear
Should be as holy as severe;
Pattern in himself to know,
Grace to stand, and virtue go;
More nor less to others paying
Than by self-offences weighing.
Shame to him whose cruel striking
Kills for faults of his own liking!
Twice treble shame on Angelo,
To weed my vice and let his grow!
O, what may man within him hide,
Though angel on the outward side!
How may likeness made in crimes,
Making practise on the times,
To draw with idle spiders' strings
Most ponderous and substantial things!
Craft against vice I must apply:
With Angelo to-night shall lie
His old betrothed but despised;
So disguise shall, by the disguised,
Pay with falsehood false exacting,
And perform an old contracting. - Author: William Shakespeare

#168. As for my own religious practice, I try to live my life pursuing what I call the Bodhisattva ideal. According to Buddhist thought, a Bodhisattva is someone on the path to Buddhahood wo dedicates themselves entirely to helping all other sentient beings towards release from suffering. The word Bodhisattva can best be understood by translating the Bodhi and Sattva separately: Bodhi means the understanding or wisdom of the ultimate nature of reality, and a Sattva is someone who is motivated by universal compassion. The Bodhissatva ideal is thus the aspiration to practise infinite compassion with infinite wisdom. releasing sentient beings from suffering. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV

Your children will never believe you are in earnest, and really wish them to obey you, so long as your actions contradict your counsel ...

You are their model picture, and they will copy what you are ... will seldom learn habits which they see you despise, or walk in paths in which you do not walk yourself. - Author: J.C. Ryle

Practise quotes by Steve Hagen
#177. The main problem for women trying to emulate male sexuality is that as a ruling-class sexuality, it is constructed around the fact that they have a subordinate class on whom to act sexually. Women are that subordinate class. The elements that constitute male sexuality depend upon the possession of ruling-class status such as objectification, aggression, and the separation of sex from loving emotion. Women are bound to be unsuccessful in seeking to acquire a form of sexuality which depends upon the possession of ruling-class power. It might be possible for some lesbians to seek a close emulation of ruling-class sexuality because they are able to practise on other women. Heterosexual women cannot practise ruling-class sexuality on men because they are not the ruling class. All that heterosexual women are in a position to do is to accommodate male sexual interests... In male supremacy men's sexual access to women gives them power and status. It does not make much difference who initiates the act, the men still gain the advantage. - Author: Sheila Jeffreys
Practise quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#178. If a man who has committed many a misdemeanor does not repent and cleanse his heart of the evil, retribution will come upon his person as sure as the streams run into the ocean which becomes ever deeper and wider. If a man who has committed a misdemeanor come to the knowledge of it, reform himself, and practise goodness, the force of retribution will gradually exhaust itself as a disease gradually loses its baneful influence when the patient perspires. - Author: Gautama Buddha
Practise quotes by Gautama Buddha
#179. One day you too may experience what I have experienced. So right away go and practise. - Author: B.K.S. Iyengar
Practise quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#180. If some people want to believe in Jesus, or Mohammed, or Buddha, or their ancestors, who is to say which is right and which wrong? It seems to me that most of the religions in the world are too dogmatic. They preach the 'live and let live' philosophy, but rarely do they practise it. - Author: Gerald Durrell
Practise quotes by Gerald Durrell
#181. Do not let us suppose that if we weep a great deal we have done everything that matters; let us also work hard and practise the virtues, for these are what we most need. Let the tears come when God is pleased to send them: we ourselves should make no efforts to induce them. They will leave this dry ground of ours well watered and will be of great help in producing fruit; but the less notice we take of them, the more they will do, because they are the water which comes from Heaven. When we ourselves draw water, we tire ourselves by digging for it, and the water we get is not the same; often we dig till we wear ourselves out without having discovered so much as a pool of water, still less a wellspring. - Author: Padma Aon Prakasha
Practise quotes by Padma Aon Prakasha
#182. He who is the real tyrant, whatever men may think, is the real slave, and is obliged to practise the greatest adulation and servility, and to be the flatterer of the vilest of mankind. He has desires which he is utterly unable to satisfy, and has more wants than any one, and is truly poor, if you know how to inspect the whole soul of him: all his life long he is beset with fear and is full of convulsions and distractions, even as the State which he resembles: and surely the resemblance holds? Very true, he said. Moreover, as we were saying before, he grows worse from having power: he becomes and is of necessity more jealous, more faithless, more unjust, more friendless, more impious, than he was at first; he is the purveyor and cherisher of every sort of vice, and the consequence is that he is supremely miserable, and that he makes everybody else as miserable as himself. No man of any sense will dispute your words. Come - Author: Plato

#185. Thus, all sane moralists admit that one may sometimes tell a lie; but no sane moralist would approve of telling a little boy to practise telling lies, in case he might one day have to tell a justifiable one. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Practise quotes by G.K. Chesterton

Practise quotes by Wayne McGregor
#187. The only way to get back the confidence is to play and win matches. You can practise as much as you like, but you need confidence that comes from playing and winning matches. - Author: Greg Rusedski
Practise quotes by Greg Rusedski
#188. Everything about his character and manners was forcible and violent; there never was any moderation; many a day did he fast, many a year did he refrain from wine; but when he did eat, it was voraciously; when he did drink wine, it was copiously. He could practise abstinence, but not temperance. - Author: James Boswell
Practise quotes by James Boswell

Practise quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#191. Let us desire that not our wills, but His will, be done.74 If we have not progressed as far as this, then, as I have said, let us practise humility, which is the ointment for our wounds; if we are truly humble, God, the Physician,75 will come in due course, even though He tarry, to heal us. - Author: Teresa Of Avila

Practise quotes by Max Stirner
#194. Pooh went into a corner and tried saying 'Aha!' in that sort of voice. Sometimes it seemed to him that it did mean what Rabbit said, and sometimes it seemed to him that it didn't. "I suppose it's just practice," he thought. "I wonder if Kanga will have to practise too so as to understand it. - Author: A.A. Milne

So live and like, that I may know Thy ways,

#199. No sinful word, nor deed of wrong, Nor thoughts that idly rove; But simple truth be on our tongue, And in our hearts be love. ST. AMBROSE. Let us all resolve,--First, to attain the grace of SILENCE; Second, to deem all FAULT-FINDING that does no good a SIN, and to resolve, when we are happy ourselves, not to poison the atmosphere for our neighbors by calling on them to remark every painful and disagreeable feature of their daily life; Third, to practise the grace and virtue of PRAISE. HARRIET B. STOWE. - Author: Mary W. Tileston
Practise quotes by Mary W. Tileston
#200. I have discovered a universal rule which seems to apply more than any other in all human actions or words: namely, to steer away from affectation at all costs, as if it were a rough and dangerous reef, and (to use perhaps a novel word for it) to practise in all things a certain nonchalance [sprezzatura] which conceals all artistry and makes whatever one says or does seem uncontrived and effortless. - Author: Baldassare Castiglione
