#1. True love doesn't grow on you, feed on you, drain you and spoil your heart. It nourishes, waters the soul and intensifies in absenses long and short. - Author: C. Nzingha Smith
Short Spine quotes by C. Nzingha Smith
#2. My grandfather used to say, "Learn to like art, music and literature deeply and passionately. They will be your friends when things are bad". It is true: at this time of year, when days are short and dark, and one hardly dares to open the newspapers, I turn, not vainly either, to the great creators of the past for distraction, solace and help. - Author: Paul Johnson
Short Spine quotes by Paul Johnson
#3. I still read Hemingway. I still read his short stories because they're so good. He doesn't waste any words. - Author: Elmore Leonard
Short Spine quotes by Elmore Leonard
#4. How vainly men themselves amaze To win the palm, the oak, or bays; And their uncessant labours see Crown'd from some single herb or tree. Whose short and narrow verged shade Does prudently their toils upbraid; While all flow'rs and all trees do close To weave the garlands of repose. - Author: Andrew Marvell
Short Spine quotes by Andrew Marvell
#5. We crave nothing less that the perfect story; And while we chatter or listen all our lives to a din of craving – jokes, anecdotes, novels, dreams, films, plays, songs, half the words of our days – We are satisfied only by the one short tale we feel to be true; History is the will of a just God who knows us. - Author: Reynolds Price
Short Spine quotes by Reynolds Price
#6. I'm more thrilled by the short fiction than I expected to be. I've found more pleasure in reading short fiction than I used to. By seeing what kinds of thinking are going on in short fiction. I was also surprised by the panic I've felt, especially at first, when we'd put an issue to bed and then realized we had to put another one together. - Author: Lorin Stein
Short Spine quotes by Lorin Stein
#7. We need to find ways to elevate the expectations, particularly of those individuals who may start off on a lower socioeconomic rung, who might be seen as disadvantaged. But, you know, the reason I say be seen as disadvantaged, it's because life is so short, and there's so much that can change. - Author: Ben Carson
Short Spine quotes by Ben Carson
#8. Self-pity is not a pleasant emotion and is a fruitless one as well, for its point of no return is an onset of black despair in very short order. - Author: Moss Hart
Short Spine quotes by Moss Hart
#9. When one becomes a liberal, he or she pretends to advocate tolerance, equality and peace, but hilariously, they're doing so for purely selfish reasons. It's the human equivalent of a puppy dog's face: an evolutionary tool designed to enhance survival, reproductive value and status. In short, liberalism is based on one central desire: to look cool in front of others in order to get love. Preaching tolerance makes you look cooler, than saying something like, 'please lower my taxes.' - Author: Greg Gutfeld
Short Spine quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#10. I'm short and curvy, but I think people want to work with me for reasons other than what I look like. - Author: Josephine De La Baume
Short Spine quotes by Josephine De La Baume
#11. Modern dynamical systems theory has a relatively short history. It begins with Poincare (of course) ... [to whom] a global understanding of the gross behavior of all solutions of the system was more important than the local behavior of particular, analytically-precise solutions. - Author: Robert L. Devaney
Short Spine quotes by Robert L. Devaney
#12. She laughed, and drank more beer. Take a long trace off a short bridge, vampire. - Author: Kresley Cole
Short Spine quotes by Kresley Cole
#13. If you've never failed, you've never tried anything new. - Author: Albert Einstein
Short Spine quotes by Albert Einstein
#14. The despicable North Korean attack in Rangoon deprived us of trusted advisers and friends. So many of those who died had won admirers in America as they studied with us or guided us with their counsel. I personally recall the wisdom and composure of Foreign Minister Lee, with whom I met in Washington just a few short months ago. To the families and countrymen of all those who were lost, America expresses its deep sorrow. - Author: Ronald Reagan
Short Spine quotes by Ronald Reagan
#15. For Hillary, gangsterism is not merely a matter of means; it is also her end. Hillary wants to be the crime boss of America. That is the only way to satisfy her unquenchable desire for money, power, and social control. As we will see in this book, Hillary is a criminal who found the criminal practices of Saul Alinsky to be too weak-kneed for her taste, and Alinsky was a gangster who found the criminal practices of the Al Capone gang to be a tad sentimental. In short, Hillary is the true Democrat, the gangster par excellence. I suspect this is why the Democratic establishment lined up so quickly behind her. While the Republicans had a real primary, hotly contested, the Democrats had a primary in which Bernie seemed to win again and again but never seemed to make a dent in Hillary's lead. That's because the Democratic super-delegates were uniformly in her camp, even though there was throughout the campaign the risk that she would be indicted. - Author: Dinesh D'Souza
Short Spine quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#16. Because you can make decisions for yourself even if they're wrong. Mistakes can be corrected. Life is too short to have everyone else tell you how to live. Make a few mistakes, and learn from them. At least they'll be real, and you'll be living, not just existing. - Author: Carolyn Brown
Short Spine quotes by Carolyn Brown
#17. Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. - Author: Alfred Tennyson
Short Spine quotes by Alfred Tennyson
#18. The cheapest sort of pride is national pride; for if a man is proud of his own nation, it argues that he has no qualities of his own of which he can be proud; otherwise he would not have recourse to those which he shares with so many millions of his fellowmen. The man who is endowed with important personal qualities will be only too ready to see clearly in what respects his own nation falls short, since their failings will be constantly before his eyes. But every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud adopts, as a last resource, pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and glad to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Short Spine quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#19. What rendered it all acceptable was that government won the war, in astonishingly short order. Had the war dragged on or ended badly, the trust reposed in government might have been withdrawn. But the greatest conflict in human history was brought to a victorious conclusion for the United States only three and a half years after American entry. America's unprecedentedly large government defeated fascism; America's big government placed the United States at the pinnacle of world power. In the process, big government restored the nation's economic vitality and self-confidence. By 1945 most Americans found big government thoroughly acceptable, even necessary, and they had ample reason for feeling the way they did. - Author: H.W. Brands
Short Spine quotes by H.W. Brands
#20. She was mined for the children
in her, one daughter, then another,
a short seam, quick to clay,
and not a single son to save them. - Author: Robert Wrigley
Short Spine quotes by Robert Wrigley
#21. Ned seemed so different from any other man of her acquaintance, and, certainly, the antithesis of the rake she had set her sights on. She had chosen DeVere as her best prospect, yet after only this short time in Ned's company, she couldn't help fervently wishing that he was DeVere. She should feel triumphant that her goal was within easy reach ... In truth, it was as if her appetite had been whetted for beefsteak ... only to be served liver instead.
-A WILD NIGHT'S BRIDE - Author: Victoria Vane
Short Spine quotes by Victoria Vane
#22. The market for short stories is hard to break into, but a magazine editor isn't always looking for big names with which to sell his magazine - they're more willing to try stories by newcomers, if those tales are good. - Author: Eric Brown
Short Spine quotes by Eric Brown
#23. It was not in my nature to be an assertive person. I was used to looking to others for guidance, for influence, sometimes for the most basic cues of life. And yet writing stories is one of the most assertive things a person can do. Fiction is an act of willfulness, a deliberate effort to reconceive, to rearrange, to reconstitute nothing short of reality itself. Even among the most reluctant and doubtful of writers, this willfulness must emerge. Being a writer means taking the leap from listening to saying, Listen to me. - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri
Short Spine quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#24. While teaching a course on global development at Uppsala University in Sweden, I realized our students didn't have a fact-based worldview. They talked about 'we' and 'them.' They thought there were two groups of countries: the Western world, with small families and long lives, and the Third World, with large families and short lives. - Author: Hans Rosling
Short Spine quotes by Hans Rosling
#25. Most fish require a short cooking time, but cephalopods are the exception to this fishy rule. As with some cuts of larger land beasts, the longer they're cooked, the more tender they get. - Author: Yotam Ottolenghi
Short Spine quotes by Yotam Ottolenghi
#26. Life is too short to read books that I'm not enjoying. - Author: Melissa Marr
Short Spine quotes by Melissa Marr
#27. You always try to be perfect, he says, and you always fall short, and it fucks with your head. Your confidence is shot, and perfectionism is the reason. - Author: Anonymous
Short Spine quotes by Anonymous
#28. Kelly Link's prose is conveyed in details so startling and fine that you work up a sweat just waiting for the next sentence to land. This is why we read, crave, need, can't live without short stories. - Author: Tea Obreht
Short Spine quotes by Tea Obreht
#29. Never regret anything that makes you smile. - Author: Audrey Hepburn
Short Spine quotes by Audrey Hepburn
#30. They say that true love always brings with it great and generous acts. Sometimes, amazing things happen to people and nobody knows about it. Nobody knows or cares. Someday many years from now in the faraway future, I will look back and say, "That year when I was in seventh grade, I knew a boy named Henderson Elliot, and what he did for me was extraordinary and who he was and how he won my heart was nothing short of incredible."
Some people in peril don't get saved, like Marty Hoey or my mom, and some people in peril do get saved, like me. Maybe it was because Henderson bought a chunk of a falling star, a gold-flecked quiet and ever-hopeful star. I hold it now tightly in my palm. - Author: Phoebe Stone
Short Spine quotes by Phoebe Stone
#31. And that's the bottom layer in old boxes: melancholy, an indefinable sense of loss. You dig around and it comes swirling up to the top - Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist
Short Spine quotes by John Ajvide Lindqvist
#32. Watching artists like Joplin perform, I felt that tingle down my spine; I experienced the wonders of a cultural and musical revolution. - Author: Clive Davis
Short Spine quotes by Clive Davis
#33. What can rulers, nobility and all the lords of the earth say to justify the horrible killing and maiming of twenty or thirty million valuable men who a short while ago ploughed, dug, wove, built, guided the traffic of the world, took their pleasure, loved their fellows, cherished their families, and feared naught? - Author: Helen Keller
Short Spine quotes by Helen Keller
#34. It hurts me when we can only travel a short stretch on the same road - Author: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Short Spine quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#35. I really like the city of Vienna. I like its art, its music and its architecture. In short, I like the culture that Vienna represents. What really captures me is the period around 1900 - the time of Freud, Schnitzler and Klimt. This is the period in which the modern view of mind was born. - Author: Eric Kandel
Short Spine quotes by Eric Kandel
#36. There lived a redheaded man who had no eyes or ears. He didn't have hair either, so he was called a redhead arbitrarily. He couldn't talk because he had no mouth. He had no nose either. He didn't even have arms or legs. He had no stomach, he had no back, he had no spine, and he had no innards at all. He didn't have anything. So we don't even know who we're talking about. It's better that we don't talk about him any more. - Author: Daniil Kharms
Short Spine quotes by Daniil Kharms
#37. Now i did think, The smoke will drive the bugs away. And, to some degree,it did. I'd be lying, though, if I claimed I became a smoker to ward off insects.I became a smoker because 1. I was on an Adirondack swing by myself, and 2. I had cigarettes, and 3.I figured that if everyone else could smoke a cigarette without coughing, I could damn well, too.In short, I didn't have a very good reason. So yeah, let's just say that was the bugs. I made it through three drags before I felt nauseuos and dizzy and only semipleasantly buzzed. I got up to leave As I stood, a voice behind me. - Author: John Green
Short Spine quotes by John Green
#38. The alumni of Second City from John Belushi to Martin Short have changed my entire life and brought a new kind of comedy to America and the World. - Author: Bernie Brillstein
Short Spine quotes by Bernie Brillstein
#39. I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it? - Author: J.K. Rowling
Short Spine quotes by J.K. Rowling
#40. Sometimes entire families participate unconsciously in a culture of self-dramatization. The kids fuel the tanks, the grown-ups arm the phasers, the whole starship lurches from one spine-tingling episode to another. And the crew knows how to keep it going. If the level of drama drops below a certain threshold, someone jumps in to amp it up. Dad gets drunk, Mom gets sick, Janie shows up for church with an Oakland Raiders tattoo. It's more fun than a movie. And it works: Nobody gets a damn thing done. Sometimes - Author: Steven Pressfield
Short Spine quotes by Steven Pressfield
#41. Most of our girls are accustomed to playing several games in a short time frame. As a coach and as a team, you want to play games. Plus, you might see a different brand of softball than you are accustomed to playing, and that can be beneficial as well. - Author: Frank Minis Johnson
Short Spine quotes by Frank Minis Johnson
#42. Until fairly recently, every family had a cornucopia of favorite home remedies--plants and household items that could be prepared to treat minor medical emergencies, or to prevent a common ailment becoming something much more serious. Most households had someone with a little understanding of home cures, and when knowledge fell short, or more serious illness took hold, the family physician or village healer would be called in for a consultation, and a treatment would be agreed upon. In those days we took personal responsibility for our health--we took steps to prevent illness and were more aware of our bodies and of changes in them. And when illness struck, we frequently had the personal means to remedy it. More often than not, the treatment could be found in the garden or the larder. In the middle of the twentieth century we began to change our outlook. The advent of modern medicine, together with its many miracles, also led to a much greater dependency on our physicians and to an increasingly stretched healthcare system. The growth of the pharmaceutical industry has meant that there are indeed "cures" for most symptoms, and we have become accustomed to putting our health in the hands of someone else, and to purchasing products that make us feel good. Somewhere along the line we began to believe that technology was in some way superior to what was natural, and so we willingly gave up control of even minor health problems. - Author: Karen Sullivan
Short Spine quotes by Karen Sullivan
#43. Life's too short to constantly be worrying about everything that could go wrong. - Author: Jessica Sorensen
