#1. The most important thing about Olympics, of course, is the games and not the opening ceremony. It's weird the way it gets inverted sometimes. - Author: Danny Boyle

#2. When we get these thruways across the whole country, as we will and must, it will be possible to drive from New York to California without seeing a single thing. - Author: John Steinbeck
Thing And Wings quotes by John Steinbeck
#3. And now that they had met and begun to see more of one another, she seemed to have fallen in love with him. A new problem with women loomed on the horizon for Hesse. That was the worst thing he could imagine: he found the prospect of entering into binding relationships with other people hard to take. This too was down to the heretic and the mystic in him, who shunned anything that threatened to formalize and institutionalize a living feeling - be that the established Church or the institution of marriage. This extreme self-centeredness was narcissistic. But in this, Hesse was far from being an exception among artists. - Author: Gunnar Decker
Thing And Wings quotes by Gunnar Decker
#4. Enjoy making decisions. You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person you stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you've been waiting for to fall into place. If you really want your life to be passionate, you need to live with this attitude of expectancy. - Author: Anthony Robbins
Thing And Wings quotes by Anthony Robbins
#5. True love is a blinding thing, it can color the experiences of even the worst events with a rosy tint, it can turn men and women into the best types of people - ones who will sacrifice the world for a shared moment of bliss. - Author: Tod Goldberg
Thing And Wings quotes by Tod Goldberg
#6. There is the great lesson of 'Beauty and the Beast,' that a thing must be loved before it is lovable. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Thing And Wings quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#7. Models are like baseball players. We make a lot of money quickly, but all of a sudden we're 30 years old, we don't have a college education, we're qualified for nothing, and we're used to a very nice lifestyle. The best thing is to marry a movie star. - Author: Cindy Crawford
Thing And Wings quotes by Cindy Crawford
#8. As the shape of Christianity changes and our churches adapt to a new world, we have a choice: we can drive our hearses around bemoaning every augur of death, or we can trust that the same God who raised Jesus from the dead is busy making something new. As long as Christians are breaking the bread and pouring the wine, as long as we are healing the sick and baptizing sinners, as long as we are preaching the Word and paying attention, the church lives, and Jesus said even the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. We might as well trust him, since he knows a thing or two about the way out of the grave. - Author: Rachel Held Evans
Thing And Wings quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#9. Then it occurred to me: You either waited for someone else to do the right thing, or you stood up and did it yourself. - Author: Eileen Cook
Thing And Wings quotes by Eileen Cook
#10. I was pulled this way and that for longer than I can remember. And my problem was that I always tried to go in everyone's way but my own. I have also been called one thing and then another while no one really wished to hear what I called myself. So after years of trying to adopt the opinions of others I finally rebelled. I am an invisible man. - Author: Ralph Ellison
Thing And Wings quotes by Ralph Ellison
#11. I am still yours, Allie, my queen, my timeless beauty. You are, and always have been, the best thing in my life - Author: Nicholas Sparks
Thing And Wings quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#12. So was it cultural imperialism for Westerners to criticize foot-binding and female infanticide? Perhaps. But it was also the right thing to do. If we believe firmly in certain values, such as the equality of all human beings regardless of color or gender, then we should not be afraid to stand up for them; it would be feckless to defer slavery, torture, foot-binding, honor killings, or genital cutting just because we believe in respecting other faiths or cultures. - Author: Nicholas D. Kristof And Sheryl WuDunn
Thing And Wings quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof And Sheryl WuDunn
#13. Because I am all too human, I don't always do the right thing, so how can I expect others to perform perfectly on the issues that are my top priority? I don't mean that we shouldn't try to do our best, but judgment and recrimination are such heavy weights. I find that accepting that we are all fallible lightens my load. - Author: Karen Dawn
Thing And Wings quotes by Karen Dawn
#14. Had the ancient Greek poet Archilochus and the modern philosopher Isaiah Berlin been magically transported to northern Italy in November of 218 B.C., they might well have speculated on the strategic prospects. "Hannibal knows many things, but Rome knows one big thing," the Greek might have proposed. To which Berlin might have replied, "Perhaps at the outset. But then the fox could get stuck in a rut, and the hedgehog might learn new tricks." This would have been the Second Punic War epitomized. - Author: Anonymous
Thing And Wings quotes by Anonymous
#15. I think hiphop is a beautiful thing and I embody it and I'm going to live it and I'm going to represent it until the day I leave this earth, because I represent everything positive about hiphop. - Author: Jon Connor
Thing And Wings quotes by Jon Connor
#16. Dead. things, dead things ... " I said. "Come no closer. Talking of madness and love, in this reeking place! And that old monster, Magnus, locking them up in his dungeon. How did he love them, his captives? The way boys love butterflies when they rip off their wings! - Author: Anne Rice
Thing And Wings quotes by Anne Rice
#17. Love is a funny thing," he says, breaking the silence.
"Sometimes, I'd like to be better with words, so that I could talk about it more. It seems so wrong to me that there is this condition that affects all of us, more than anything else in our lives ever will, and only the poets and song writers get to talk about it with any sort of authority. - Author: Rowan Coleman
Thing And Wings quotes by Rowan Coleman
#18. The interesting thing with child actors is that kids are natural actors. They're wonderful actors, and most kids are acting all the time. They're imagining they're out in the yard playing. They're imagining that things happened, and they can get very vivid. - Author: Clint Eastwood
Thing And Wings quotes by Clint Eastwood
#19. I tend to basically exaggerate in life, and in writing, it's fine to exaggerate. I really enjoy overstating for the purpose of getting a laugh. For another thing, writing is easier than digging ditches. Well, actually, that's an exaggeration. It isn't. - Author: Dr. Seuss
Thing And Wings quotes by Dr. Seuss
#20. There is only one thing children find harder to hold back than tears, and that is joy. - Author: Karl Ove Knausgaard
Thing And Wings quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#21. His nerve, his memory, and I can't remember the third thing. - Author: Lee Trevino
Thing And Wings quotes by Lee Trevino
#22. How rarely these few years, as work keeps up aloof,
Or fares, or one thing or another,
How we had days to spend under our parents' roof;
Myself, my sister, and my brother.
All five of us will die; to reckon from the past
This flesh and blood is unforgiving.
What's hard is that just one of us will be the last
To bear it all and go on living. - Author: Vikram Seth
Thing And Wings quotes by Vikram Seth
#23. My job doesn't define me. The people I love define me. And if Nan's aneurysm taught me one thing, it's that those people are getting older, and their lives are getting shorter. I don't want to be a full day's journey away from them. I want to make the most of our time together and enjoy the absolute crap out of them while I have the chance. - Author: Whitney Dineen
Thing And Wings quotes by Whitney Dineen
#24. She turns her head, throws the damn thing with a strong flick, and it lands in the side of a wooden heron's head. Holy shit. I can't believe it. Lust bashes me like a sledgehammer, and I suddenly imagine her naked.
"Dude!" Blake yells, snapping me back to reality.
Anna stares down at me like she's conquered me. "You showed your colors!"
"Did not," I reply quickly. But even as I say it, I think I bleedin' well might've. - Author: Wendy Higgins
Thing And Wings quotes by Wendy Higgins
#25. Filmmaking is essentially about entertainment, but it's amazing to realize that it has this other muscle that could actually help. Do you know what I mean? People permit entertainment to wash over them, but every once and a while, entertainment - and this is entertaining - also galvanizes something else and that would be a really good thing to have happen in this case. - Author: Ken Burns
Thing And Wings quotes by Ken Burns
#26. The thing about fires most people don't realise is the noise. It's deafening so even if you shout, you can't be heard three feet away. You can never quite get used to the fury of it, it's like a mighty roar of anger that just keeps going. I suppose flame is beautiful, the way it leaps into the air like it's free to do what it wants. Other elements are also free and I guess the sea can be pretty awesome, wind too, and lightning, but fire has a mind and a determination. You don't see it as a blind raging thing, which I suppose it is, but something that attacks and thinks and changes tactics. It has a malevolence that uses surprise, dirty tricks, cunning. You get to think of it as someone, not something, and it's someone you have to beat, but right from the start you don't like your chances because it's so big and unpredictable and can do so much harm. - Author: Bryce Courtenay
Thing And Wings quotes by Bryce Courtenay
#27. He was a bad man, a bully and a thug, yet he was deeply religious in his way - I very much doubt that he would have made such a thing up. It was not his sort of lie, if you know what I mean. - Author: Gene Wolfe
Thing And Wings quotes by Gene Wolfe
#28. I burnt for the more active life of the world--for the more exciting toils of a literary career--for the destiny of an artist, author, orator; anything rather than that of a priest: yes, the heart of a politician, of a soldier, of a votary of glory, a lover of renown, a luster after power, beat under my curate's surplice. I considered; my life was so wretched, it must be changed, or I must die. After a season of darkness and struggling, light broke and relief fell: my cramped existence all at once spread out to a plain without bounds--my powers heard a call from heaven to rise, gather their full strength, spread their wings, and mount beyond ken. - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Thing And Wings quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#29. How wonderful he smelled all sleep warm first thing in the morning. But I wanted more from him than just that. I wanted to hear his voice, hear him talk about everything and anything. - Author: Kylie Scott
Thing And Wings quotes by Kylie Scott
#30. If Albert Einstein, the last century's very poster boy for the cunning man and the wild-haired magician of science, knew one thing, then it was simply that there was always more to be known. He didn't pridefully condemn dreams of physics and incomplete theories. He pointed off into the future and named the unknown things as, in fact, spooky action at a distance. - Author: Warren Ellis
Thing And Wings quotes by Warren Ellis
#31. We all have those days when you feel like you're against the world, every little thing goes wrong and your blood pressure is up. And you feel like punching somebody! - Author: Josh Turner
Thing And Wings quotes by Josh Turner
#32. The biggest mistake you can make is assuming that creativity will hit you all at once and the muse will carry you to the end of the book on feather wings while 'Foster the People' plays gently in the background. Storytelling is work. Pleasurable work, usually, but it is work. - Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Thing And Wings quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#33. What I'm trying to say is, you can't change a guy. Concentrate on your own life. Someone whose hobbies include trying to break his neck on a motorcycle and slipping into a girl's bedroom first thing in the morning isn't worth bothering about."

"He's actually been here since last night."

Dad's fingers tightened on the doorknob even though his voice stayed light. "I really need to buy that shotgun."

"He was sick and needed to lie down," said Kami.

"Uh-huh," said Dad.

"He was literally unconscious, and Mum and I had to carry him up the stairs."

"Oldest trick in the book," grumbled Dad, but his brow cleared. "Claire didn't mention anything about this."

"Maybe because she thought you'd go out and buy a shotgun?"

"Maybe," Dad conceded. - Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Thing And Wings quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#34. The thing about bands is everybody wants to be the next Oasis, and that doesn't mean slogging it out around the toilet [gigs], it means, "Give me the check, I need to go to the Levis shop and I need a 1960s Gibson." - Author: Noel Gallagher
Thing And Wings quotes by Noel Gallagher
#35. If he be really and seriously seeking to live a good life, the first thing from which he will abstain will always be the use of animal food, because ... its use is simply immoral, as it involves the performance of an act which is contrary to the moral feeling - killing. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Thing And Wings quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#36. Honestly, I try and stay away from what's been written about me, because if you let that stuff get to you and it's not true it can drive you crazy. One thing that I have heard recently which is not true, I didn't say it, is that I believe I was quote saying 'I will never take my shirt off for a movie again.' I didn't say that. - Author: Taylor Lautner
Thing And Wings quotes by Taylor Lautner
#37. To me, truth is the big thing. Constantly you're writing something and you get to a place where your characters could go this way or that and I just can't lie. The characters have gotta be true to themselves. - Author: Quentin Tarantino
Thing And Wings quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#38. Not that anyone minds
no one's paying attention to the music. Most of them never really listen to music. Practically no one actually does. Even at concerts people pay good money for, instead of a three-dollar cover charge, they talk through the whole thing. I feel sorry for them, since none of them understand what it's like to have a song just get into your soul and become your whole world. They don't know what it's like when a song changes your life. - Author: Adam Selzer
Thing And Wings quotes by Adam Selzer
#39. When I turn my mind's eye upon myself, I understand that I am a thing which is incomplete and dependent on another and which aspires without limit to ever greater and better things ... - Author: Rene Descartes
Thing And Wings quotes by Rene Descartes
#40. The American dream means that you have the chance to work hard, get an education and do great things for yourself, for your kids. The great thing in American is it doesn't matter what your last name is, doesn't matter if you're wealthy. - Author: Bobby Jindal
Thing And Wings quotes by Bobby Jindal
#41. Moreover, the eye contains a big flaw: the retina is inside out. Why would an almighty designer do such a thing? No intelligent designer, .. would put such a clumsy arrangement in a camcorder, and this is just one of the hundreds of accidents frozen in evolutionary history that confirm the mindlessness of the historical process. - Author: Daniel Dennett
Thing And Wings quotes by Daniel Dennett
#42. The thing about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, the thing that was so profound to me that summer - and yet also, like most things, so very simple - was how few choices I had and how often I had to do the thing I least wanted to do. How there was no escape or denial. No numbing it down with a martini or covering it up with a roll in the hay. As I clung to the chaparral that day, attempting to patch up my bleeding finger, terrified by every sound that the bull was coming back, I considered my options. There were only two and they were essentially the same. I could go back in the direction I had come from, or I could go forward in the direction I intended to go. - Author: Cheryl Strayed
Thing And Wings quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#43. It is GOOD to cherish your yesterdays; It is BETTER to dream your tomorrows; but it is BEST to live your today's! Remember to hold fast to your dreams, for if your dreams die, then your life is like a bird with broken wings that cannot fly. - Author: Donald Pillai
Thing And Wings quotes by Donald Pillai
#44. Go to Old Delhi,and look at the way they keep chickens there in the market. Hundred of pale hens and brightly colored roosters, stuffed tightly into wire-mesh cages. They see the organs of their brothers lying around them.They know they are next, yet they cannot rebel. They do not try to get out of the coop. The very same thing is done with humans in this country. - Author: Aravind Adiga
Thing And Wings quotes by Aravind Adiga
#45. He stopped the flyers
And by his rare example made the coward
Turn terror into sport. As weeds before
A vessel under sail, so men obeyed
And fell below his stem. His sword, Death's stamp,
Where it did mark, it took; from face to foot
He was a thing of blood, whose every motion
Was timed with dying cries. Alone he entered
The mortal gate o' th' city, which he painted
With shunless destiny; aidless came off
And with a sudden reinforcement struck
Corioles like a planet. Now all's his,
When by and by the dim of war gan pierce
His ready sense; then straight his doubled spirit
Requickened what in flesh was fatigate,
And to the battle came he, where he did
Run reeking o'er the lives of men as if
'Twere a perpetual spoil; and till we called
Both field and city ours, he never stood
To ease his breast with panting. - Author: William Shakespeare
Thing And Wings quotes by William Shakespeare
