Petulance is not wit, although a few grains of wit may be found in petulance; quartz is not gold, although a few grains of gold may be found in quartz. ~ Walter Savage Landor
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Savage Landor
A president, like a college freshman, can't know in advance which questions he'll have to answer or what topics he'll have to master. He has to be flexible, supple, and responsive. He has to be comfortable with multiple-choice. ~ Walter Kirn
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Kirn
It often comes into my head That we may dream when we are dead, But I am far from sure we do. O that it were so! then my rest Would be indeed among the blest; I should for ever dream of you. ~ Walter Savage Landor
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Savage Landor
...but I was urged on by a courage born of despair. ~ Walter Moers
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Moers
I never had the ambition to be something. I had the ambition to do something. ~ Walter Cronkite
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Cronkite
Expressive glances Shall be our lances And pops of Sillery Our light artillery. ~ Walter Raleigh
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Raleigh
Design came into being in 1919, when Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus at Weimar. Part of the prospectus of this school reads:
'The function of art has in the past been given a formal importance which has severed it from our daily life; but art is always present when a people lives sincerely and health.
'Thus our job is to invest a new system of education that may lead to a complete knowledge of human needs and a universal awareness of them.'
[...]
What Gropius wrote is still valid. Tis first school of design did tend to make a new kind of artist, an artist useful to society because he helps society to recover its balance, and not to lurch between a false world to live one's material life in and and ideal world to take moral revenge in. ~ Bruno Munari
Walter Chappell quotes by Bruno Munari
Will future ages believe that such stupid bigotry ever existed! ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
Look back on your wedding
And be filled with joy and pride
Deservedly so, for the many years
You've flourished, side by side ~ John Walter Bratton
Walter Chappell quotes by John Walter Bratton
When you're bringing in a fairly unknown candidate challenging a sitting president, the population needs a lot more information than reduced coverage provides. ~ Walter Cronkite
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Cronkite
The greatest power is not money power, but political power. ~ Walter Annenberg
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Annenberg
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, and men below, and the saints above, for love is heaven, and heaven is love. ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
Almost no two experiences are exactly alike, not even of two children in the same household. The older son never does have the experience of being the younger. And therefore, until we are able to discount the difference in nurture, we must withhold judgment about differences of nature. As well as judge the productivity of two soils by comparing their yield before you know which is in Labrador and which in Iowa, whether they have been cultivated and enriched, exhausted, or allowed to run wild. ~ Walter Lippmann
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Lippmann
These changes-the more rapid pulse, the deeper breathing, the increase of sugar in the blood, the secretion from the adrenal glands-were very diverse and seemed unrelated. Then, one wakeful night, after a considerable collection of these changes had been disclosed, the idea flashed through my mind that they could be nicely integrated if conceived as bodily preparations for supreme effort in flight or in fighting. Further investigation added to the collection and confirmed the general scheme suggested by the hunch. ~ Walter Bradford Cannon
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Bradford Cannon
Many of the wonderful achievements of the 20th century were the result of the pursuit of profits. Unfortunately, demagoguery has led to profits becoming a dirty word. Nonprofit is seen as more righteous, particularly when people pompously stand before us and declare, 'We're a nonprofit organization.' ~ Walter E. Williams
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter E. Williams
He is the best sailor who can steer within fewest points of the wind, and exact a motive power out of the greatest obstacles. ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
I always had one ear offstage, listening for the call from the bookie. ~ Walter Matthau
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Matthau
Libertarianism is neither of the left nor of the right. It is unique. It is sui generis. It is apart from left and right. The left right political spectrum simply has no room for libertarianism. Think of an equilateral triangle, with libertarianism at one corner, the left at a second corner and the right at the third corner. We are equally distant from both of those misbegotten political economic philosophies. No, better yet, think in terms of an isosceles triangle, with us at the top and the two of them at the bottom, indicating they have more in common with each other than with us. ~ Walter Block
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Block
To sit next to Walter Hill, and to be able to exchange ideas back and forth, and for him to be able to tell you that he likes what you're doing - I don't know. I kind of pinch myself. ~ Sarah Shahi
Walter Chappell quotes by Sarah Shahi
To live thy better, let thy worst thoughts die. ~ Walter Raleigh
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Raleigh
I think of writers as explorers, not necessarily as detectives. So there is certainly detecting that is going on, but they're explorers. ~ Walter Mosley
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Mosley
If you can achieve winning a league championship, that, to me, is the full test of the team and management because it is over the full season and you have a lot of problems you have to overcome. ~ Walter Smith
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Smith
Not to find one's way in a city may well be uninteresting and banal. It requires ignorance - nothing more," says the twentieth-century philosopher-essayist Walter Benjamin. "But to lose oneself in a city - as one loses oneself in a forest - that calls for quite a different schooling." To lose yourself: a voluptuous surrender, lost in your arms, lost to the world, utterly immersed in what is present so that its surroundings fade away. In Benjamin's terms, to be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to be capable of being in uncertainty and mystery. And one does not get lost but loses oneself, with the implication that it is a conscious choice, a chosen surrender, a psychic state achievable through geography. ~ Rebecca Solnit
Walter Chappell quotes by Rebecca Solnit
Life is an irreversible process and for that reason its future can never be a repetition of the past. ~ Walter Lippmann
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Lippmann
The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of numbers can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force. ~ Walter Lippmann
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Lippmann
Great God! hast Thou given men Thine own image that it should be thus cruelly defaced by the hands of their brethren! ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
I'm very proud of what Harry Truman turned out to be in office and the record he made. Certainly I think he'll go down in history as one of the greats, because of his conscience, his determination to stick with what he knew was right. ~ Walter Cronkite
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Cronkite
Cats are a mysterious kind of folk. There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of. ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
The only feeling that anyone can have about an event he does not experience is the feeling aroused by his mental image of that event ... For it is clear enough that under certain conditions men respond as powerfully to fictions as they do to realities. ~ Walter Lippmann
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Lippmann
In painting, whether colour reflection is apparent or not, every hue must echo neighbouring hues, so that homogeneity may be attained. ~ Walter J. Phillips
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter J. Phillips
For those of us who spent our careers competing with David Broder, the hardest thing to abide was the inevitable comparison. If someone said Jack Germond - or Jules Witcover or Walter Mears or whoever - 'is a pretty good political reporter,' the default response would be, 'but he's no David Broder.' ~ Jack Germond
Walter Chappell quotes by Jack Germond
The government of the German Democratic Republic rejects secret policies. It works for the people, and only the people, so it does not need to keep secrets like the warmongers. ~ Walter Ulbricht
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Ulbricht
We must not forget that these men and women who file through the narrow gates at Ellis Island, hopeful, confused, with bundles of misconceptions as heavy as the great sacks upon their backs these simple, rough-handed people are the ancestors of our descendants, the fathers and mothers of our children. ~ Walter Weyl
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Weyl
What is it in people, or just in people like me, that would rather let a lie go by, would rather wish it away or minimize it, than point it out and cause the liar embarassment? ~ Walter Kirn
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Kirn
Love makes you blind to your own survival. And if it doesn't then it's not love at all. ~ Walter Mosley
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Mosley
From the minute you start school, you're fed a bunch of lies: Be yourself. Don't follow the crowd, blah blah. What they really mean is: Follow the crowd. Just make sure it's the right one."' – Total Constant Order (208) ~ Crissa-Jean Chappell
Walter Chappell quotes by Crissa-Jean Chappell
The rise of a hypersexual culture is not proof that we have reached full equality; rather, it has reflected and exaggerated the deeper imbalances of power in our society. Without thoroughgoing economic and political change, what we see when we look around us is not the equality we once sought; it is a stalled revolution. ~ Natasha Walter
Walter Chappell quotes by Natasha Walter
when you only eat natural foods, you are less likely to become addicted to sugar or fat. And because you won't be prone to sugar or fat addictions, it will be very hard to eat extra calories. ~ Walter James Brown
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter James Brown
floor of Bethesda Naval Hospital, sick with duodenal ~ Walter Isaacson
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Isaacson
How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people. ~ Walter E. Williams
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter E. Williams
Europe's experiment with multiculturalism, or the side-by-side existence of different cultures, has failed throughout the continent. Integration requires a minimum basis of shared values, that is, a culture of mutual tolerance and respect - in other words, what constitutes the heart of European culture. ~ Walter Kasper
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Kasper
I've written enough books with real celebrities, such as Walter Payton and Hank Aaron and Billy Graham, to know that fame looks good only to people who don't have it. ~ Jerry B. Jenkins
Walter Chappell quotes by Jerry B. Jenkins
If a farmer fills his barn with grain, he gets mice. If he leaves it empty, he gets actors. ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
Each gray hair still seemed like a weevil in a flower bed. ~ Jess Walter
Walter Chappell quotes by Jess Walter
A sudden light transfigures a trivial thing, a weather-vane, a windmill, a winnowing flail, the dust in the barn door; a moment - and the thing has vanished, because it was pure effect; but it leaves a relish behind it, a longing that the accident may happen again. ~ Walter Pater
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Pater
Only he who can view his own past as an abortion sprung from compulsion and need can use it to full advantage in the present. For what one has lived is at best comparable to a beautiful statue which has had all its limbs knocked off in transit, and now yields nothing but the precious block out of which the image of one's future must be hewn. ~ Walter Benjamin
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Benjamin
Heap on more wood! - the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still. ~ Walter Scott
Walter Chappell quotes by Walter Scott
