A cat can never be well-trained because they're too independent. ~ Marjane Satrapi
Wells quotes by Marjane Satrapi
I want order and taste. A well displayed meal is enhanced one hundred per cent in my eyes. ~ Marie-Antoine Careme
Wells quotes by Marie-Antoine Careme
I'd had a cold that day and wasn't as powerful as usual, otherwise Alyss would never have done so well," Redd said as, in the alcove, the final image dissolved. She blew at the cloud and it drifted out into the crypt. "Has a malicious ruler ever suffered more? I think not. ~ Frank Beddor
Wells quotes by Frank Beddor
As we learned from the Clinton administration and much of the media, a machine gun in the hands of a federal agent is now a symbol of benevolence and concern for a child's well-being. ~ James Bovard
Wells quotes by James Bovard
Well, my paper has asked me to do a series: Lives of the Great Musicians, reading time 2 minutes. ~ Dodie Smith
Wells quotes by Dodie Smith
I was really more interested in dramatic work, but I thought, 'Well, I guess I could do comedy.' ~ Donny Most
Wells quotes by Donny Most
In real life, as well as in experiments, people can come to believe things that never really happened. ~ Elizabeth Loftus
Wells quotes by Elizabeth Loftus
I have it in my mind that classification is a necessary condition of the working of the mental implement but that it is a departure from the objective truth of things, that classification is very serviceable for the practical purposes of life but a very doubtful preliminary to those fine penetrations the philosophical purpose, in its more arrogant moods, demands. All the peculiarities of my way of thinking derive from that.

I submit to you that syllogism is based on classification, that all hard logical reasoning tends to imply and is apt to imply a confidence in the objective reality of classification. Consequently in denying that I deny the absolute validity of logic. Classification and number, which in truth ignore the fine differences of objective realities, have in the past of human thought been imposed upon things. [...] The forceps of our minds are clumsy forceps, and crush the truth a little in taking hold of it.

It was about this difficulty that the mind of Plato played a little inconclusively all his life. For the most part he tended to regard the idea as the something behind reality, whereas it seems to me that the idea is the more proximate and less perfect thing, the thing by which the mind, by ignoring individual differences, attempts to comprehend an otherwise unmanageable number of unique realities. ~ H.G. Wells
Wells quotes by H.G. Wells
Oh! you shall see how well I know how to love! I can only love; I know only how to love! With moderate faculties, we can yet do much when we center them on a single object. ~ Jeanne Julie Eleonore De Lespinasse
Wells quotes by Jeanne Julie Eleonore De Lespinasse
When I swore that you're getting more and more beautiful everyday. Well, I was only kidding, honey. ~ Al Yankovic
Wells quotes by Al Yankovic
You're not allowed to give yourself a nickname. This holds true in life as well as in poker. ~ Richard Roeper
Wells quotes by Richard Roeper
There are many in the Church as well as out of it who need to learn that Christianity is neither creed nor a ceremonial, but a life vitaly connected with a loving Christ. ~ Josiah Strong
Wells quotes by Josiah Strong
Do you think any of us know how to love?! Do you think anybody would ever do anything if they waited until they knew how to love?! Do you think that babies would ever get made or meals cooked or crops planed or books written or what God-damn-have-you? Do you think people would even get out of bed in the morning if they waited until they knew how to love? You have had too much therapy. Or not enough. God knows how to love, kiddo. The rest of us are only good actors.
Forget love. Try good manners. ~ Rebecca Wells
Wells quotes by Rebecca Wells
[A]ny notion of the serious life of leisure, as well as men's taste and capacity to live it, had disappeared. Leisure became entertainment. ~ Allan Bloom
Wells quotes by Allan Bloom
Once a job it has begun, do not stop until it's done. Whether it is big or small, do it well or not all. ~ Bear Grylls
Wells quotes by Bear Grylls
Passively accepting your sadness is the same as forgetting to build your own happiness. Happiness is more than a mood. It's a long-lasting state that is more accurately called well-being. ~ Deepak Chopra
Wells quotes by Deepak Chopra
Money, like most other inventions, had happened to mankind, and men had still to develop to-day they have still to perfect the science and morality of money. ~ H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
But it's the things that preceded it that made that happen, and of course now someone like me thinks, well, if I can do that ... then there are a lot of other things that are possible. ~ Lou Reed
Wells quotes by Lou Reed
Knowledge is a Weapon, Jon. Arm yourself well before you ride forth to Battle. ~ George R R Martin
Wells quotes by George R R Martin
I don't think leaders are born. Well, they're born; everybody's born, but I think leadership can be enhanced, they can be developed, and I think that it's important we do that, particularly with our youngsters. ~ Pat Williams
Wells quotes by Pat Williams
Antique art has come down to us in a fragmentary condition, and we have virtuously adapted our taste to this necessity. Almost all our favorite specimens of Greek sculpture, from the sixth century onward, were originally parts of compositions, and if we were faced with the complete group in which the Charioteer of Delphi was once a subsidiary figure, we might well experience a moment of revulsion. We have come to think of the fragment as more vivid, more concentrated, and more authentic. ~ Kenneth Clark
Wells quotes by Kenneth Clark
I got to thinking - when it was too late - you have to reach out to people. To your family, too. You can't just let them sit there, you should put your hand out. If they slap it back, well you reach out again if you care enough. If you don't care enough, you forget about them, if you can. ~ Cynthia Voigt
Wells quotes by Cynthia Voigt
I think that is the fight that we have to wage if we're to save the middle class. And I do have doubts about whether Hillary Clinton or whether any Republican candidate out there is prepared to take on the big money interests who control so much of our economy and as a result of Citizens United, our political process as well. ~ Lindsey Graham
Wells quotes by Lindsey Graham
Well, all I can say is, it's a day-by-day program, and so I'm very worried about relapsing, but I don't know. I don't want to use. I don't want to go back to that place because nothing good came of it. It was super dark; it's not nice. ~ Jack Osbourne
Wells quotes by Jack Osbourne
By the end, you should be inside your character, actually operating from within somebody else, and knowing him pretty well, as that person knows himself or herself. You're sort of a predator, an invader of people. ~ William Trevor
Wells quotes by William Trevor
Yes it's going really well. We are planning on having a baby together. ~ Shahrukh Khan
Wells quotes by Shahrukh Khan
Well, Winnepeg has everything to do with my music in the sense it was where I was born and raised, cultured and all that sort of thing. A lot of my experiences come from Winnepeg. ~ Chantal Kreviazuk
Wells quotes by Chantal Kreviazuk
I have two doctors, my left leg and my right. ~ G. M. Trevelyan
Wells quotes by G. M. Trevelyan
The average man never really thinks from end to end of his life. The mental activity of such people is only a mouthing of cliches. What they mistake for thought is simply a repetition of what they have heard. My guess is that well over 80 percent of the human race goes through life without having a single original thought. ~ H.L. Mencken
Wells quotes by H.L. Mencken
I've always had good support of parents for doing what I wanted to do. When it became music they were just as supportive as well. ~ Negash Ali
Wells quotes by Negash Ali
Until we can ban all of them [firearms], then we might as well ban none. ~ Howard Metzenbaum
Wells quotes by Howard Metzenbaum
As a professional football player, I have known perfectly well from the day I started playing that every day I have to fight for my place. ~ Luis Figo
Wells quotes by Luis Figo
I was a directing student and a production design student at Carnegie Mellon. I went in as a production design student and became a directing student. ~ John Wells
Wells quotes by John Wells
There are few things easier than to live badly and die well. ~ Oscar Wilde
Wells quotes by Oscar Wilde
'Cabin Fever' was very much inspired by 'The Thing.' It's really a perfect guy's horror movie: There's no love story, it's just straight-up horror. And it's so well-done. It moves at a slow pace, but it's really terrific. ~ Eli Roth
Wells quotes by Eli Roth
There's some homophobia within black community, but there's some strong homophobia throughout the whole of American society as well, particularly throughout the South to a degree, whether white or black. And since many of us migrated from the South, that could be a strong connection along those lines. ~ Otis Moss III
Wells quotes by Otis Moss III
I have a life that's just been a well of loneliness. ~ Jessica Lange
Wells quotes by Jessica Lange
One thing is certain in life. Just when things are going well, soon afterward they are certain to go wrong. It's just the way things are meant to be. ~ Bryce Courtenay
Wells quotes by Bryce Courtenay
It is well for us if we have learned to listen to the sweet persuasion of the Beatitudes, but there are crises in all lives which require also the emphatic "Thou shalt not" of the decalogue which the founders wrote on the gateposts of their commonwealth. ~ John Greenleaf Whittier
Wells quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz opened up a new line of attack on Donald Trump, targeting his involvement in Trump University, a for-profit, non-licensed now defunct institution which triggered lawsuits from individuals who claimed they were defrauded by him, as well as a suit alleging fraud from New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman. ~ Chris Hayes
Wells quotes by Chris Hayes
Principle of "Christian love": it insists upon being well paid in the end. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Wells quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
It's harder and harder to make a well-done romantic comedy these days because the conventions have been so played out. ~ Dana Fox
Wells quotes by Dana Fox
The idea of taking a song, envisioning the overall sound in my head and then bringing the arrangement to life in the studio ... well, that gives me satisfaction like nothing else ... My state of being has been elevated, because I've been exercising, writing songs ... No masterpiece ever came overnight. A person's masterpiece is something that you nurture along. ~ Brian Wilson
Wells quotes by Brian Wilson
The more committees you belong to, the less of ordinary life you will understand. When your daily round becomes nothing more than a daily round of committees you might as well be dead. ~ Stella Benson
Wells quotes by Stella Benson
Cripple crow say something for our grieving, where do we go once we start leaving. Well close that wound or else keep on bleeding and change your tune, it's got no meaning. ~ Devendra Banhart
Wells quotes by Devendra Banhart
Thus, experience has ever shown, that education, as well as religion, aristocracy, as well as democracy and monarchy, are, singly, totally inadequate to the business of restraining the passions of men, of preserving a steady government, and protecting the lives, liberties, and properties of the people ... Religion, superstition, oaths, education, laws, all give way before passions, interest, and power, which can be resisted only by passions, interest, and power. ~ John Adams
Wells quotes by John Adams
Happiness doesn't require laughter, only well-being and a sense that the world is breaking someone else's heart, not mine. ~ Diane Ackerman
Wells quotes by Diane Ackerman
Most people, after one success, are so cringingly afraid of doing less well that they rub all the edge off their subsequent work. ~ Beatrix Potter
Wells quotes by Beatrix Potter
Secular writers can tell a story about the physical, the emotional, and the intellectual parts of a character. But no matter how well they tell the story, they miss a facet that is innately part of all of us - the spiritual. ~ Karen Kingsbury
Wells quotes by Karen Kingsbury
Little things make the difference. Everyone is well prepared in the big things, but only the winners perfect the little things. ~ Bear Bryant
Wells quotes by Bear Bryant
I took Spanish in high school and I didn't do too well in it. My Spanish teacher told me not to go on with Spanish anymore, so I was discouraged a little bit. ~ Tyler Posey
Wells quotes by Tyler Posey
A man always writes absolutely well whenever he writes in his own manner, but the wigmaker who tries to write like Gellert ... writes badly. ~ Georg C. Lichtenberg
Wells quotes by Georg C. Lichtenberg
Butch didn't live in his own place. He didn't spend his own money. He had no job, no future. He was a well-kept pet, not a man. ~ J.R. Ward
Wells quotes by J.R. Ward
Don't think you have to be solemn to meditate. To meditate, well, you have to smile a lot. ~ Nhat Hanh
Wells quotes by Nhat Hanh
Happiness is the most natural thing in the world when you have it, and the slowest, strangest, most impossible thing when you don't. It's like learning a foreign language: You can think about the words all you want, but you'll never be able to speak it until you suck up your courage and say them out loud. ~ Dan Wells
Wells quotes by Dan Wells
With the horses, you can't let them call the shot part of the time and then you call the shot part of the time. They're not really designed to be your leader, but they can be a great partner, but you need to lead, and they need to respect you and respond with respect. Don't think of respect as a dirty word. You need to respect them as well. ~ Buck Brannaman
Wells quotes by Buck Brannaman
Money has, as we know, no value in itself. It is a convenient yardstick for a large number of material values. But the health and life of an individual as well as the health of a nation cannot be measured by that yardstick. If we, entrusted with protecting and defending the health of the population, give in to a salesman's scale of values we are lost. ~ Karl Evang
Wells quotes by Karl Evang
You can't be halfhearted in a revolution. Values that serve well in a civil society don't work in a state of nature. ~ Glenn Reynolds
Wells quotes by Glenn Reynolds
I talk to fashion designers and say I want some money to save the rainforest, and they say, 'Oh, I agree with you completely Vivienne. Yes, climate change, it's definitely happening,' but they don't feel that they can do anything about it; they don't even think 'Well let's stop it!' ~ Vivienne Westwood
Wells quotes by Vivienne Westwood
Listen, if you're not going to be a nun or something, you might as well laugh. ~ J.D. Salinger
Wells quotes by J.D. Salinger
Be able to draw an illustration as least well enough to get your point across to another person. ~ Marilyn Vos Savant
Wells quotes by Marilyn Vos Savant
I tell you (dogmatically, if you like to call it so, knowing it well) a square inch of man's engraving is worth all the photographs that were ever dipped in acid ... Believe me, photography can do against line engraving just what Madame Tussaud's wax-work can do against sculpture. That and no more. (1865) ~ John Ruskin
Wells quotes by John Ruskin
As long as you're eating well and moving your body every day, age is just a state of mind ~ Giada De Laurentiis
Wells quotes by Giada De Laurentiis
A good education prepares you well for anything. ~ Marv Levy
Wells quotes by Marv Levy
The man that found the 726-carat diamond in Africa, received $350,000 for it and wants to buy a farm and silk hat. Well, I can understand a man perhaps being eccentric enough to want to own a silk hat. ~ Will Rogers
Wells quotes by Will Rogers
Well the themes for me were and remain sex and love and grief and death - the things that make us and undo us, create and destroy, how we breed and disappear and the emotional context that surrounds these events. ~ Thomas Lynch
Wells quotes by Thomas Lynch
Amma Theodora said: A certain monk, afflicted by many sorrows, said to himself, "Leave this place." With these words he began to put his sandals on his feet, and suddenly he saw the devil in the form of a man sitting in the corner of his cell. The devil was also putting on his sandals. He said to the monk, "Are you leaving here because of me? Well then, wherever you go, I will be there before you." ~ Ignatius Bryanchaninov
Wells quotes by Ignatius Bryanchaninov
For the gods, though slow to see, see well, whenever a man casting aside worship turns folly. ~ Sophocles
Wells quotes by Sophocles
What is it that wells up so suddenly and menacingly under my heart, swallowing the soft air of melancholy? Are you pleased with us, dark night? What is it you conceal under your mantle, that grabs invisibly and powerfully at my soul? A rich balm drips off your fingers from a bundle of poppies. You raise up the heavy wings of the soul – darkly and inexpressibly we are moved. I see an earnest face startled with joy – softly and reverently it inclines toward me, and under endlessly entangled locks
appears the cherished face of our Mother. How poor and childish the light seems to me now − how welcome and
blessed is the day's departure. ~ Novalis
Wells quotes by Novalis
Whatever side I take, I know well that I will be
blamed. ~ Keith Richards
Wells quotes by Keith Richards
As well might it be said that, because we are ignorant of the laws by which metals are produced and trees developed, we cannot know anything of the origin of steamships and railways. ~ Alfred Russel Wallace
Wells quotes by Alfred Russel Wallace
If two New Hampshiremen aren't a match for the devil, we might as well give the country back to the Indians. ~ Stephen Vincent Benet
Wells quotes by Stephen Vincent Benet
When somebody is angry with us, we draw a halo around his or her head, in our minds. Does the person stop being angry then? Well, we don't know! We know, though, that when we draw a halo around a person, suddenly the person starts to look like an angel to us. ~ John Lennon
Wells quotes by John Lennon
Well, if you're talking about perfection, I'll show you the image of my backside. ~ Onew
Wells quotes by Onew
You have to be simultaneously well-prepared and spontaneous. You don't really know for sure what percentage of the preparation you are going to use, and you don't know exactly where it will apply. So you have to be prepared, but not locked into that preparation. ~ Bob Costas
Wells quotes by Bob Costas
Doctor, I can't pronounce my F's, T's and H's." "Well you can't say fairer than that then ~ Tommy Cooper
Wells quotes by Tommy Cooper
Some brains are barren grounds, that will not bring seed or fruit forth, unless they are well manured with the old wit which is raked from other writers and speakers. ~ Margaret Cavendish
Wells quotes by Margaret Cavendish
I have to say I'm all for public flogging. One type of criminal that a public humiliation might work particularly well with are the juvenile delinquents, a lot of whom consider it a badge of honor to be sent to juvenile detention. And it might not be such a cool thing in the 'hood to be flogged publicly. ~ Ann Coulter
Wells quotes by Ann Coulter
This is about putting education absolutely in the centre of enterprise and then using the traditions of Birmingham to inspire and grow. If you have knowledge and business linked together you will grow well, you go further down the innovative path and actually you create more and more jobs. Those jobs will only be available for people with skills but they will be real sustainable employments. That is how important innovation is. ~ Digby Jones, Baron Jones Of Birmingham
Wells quotes by Digby Jones, Baron Jones Of Birmingham
In less than twenty-five years ... the motor-car will be obsolete, because the aeroplane will run along the ground as well as fly over it. ~ Philip Gibbs
Wells quotes by Philip Gibbs
Write in such a way as that you can be readily understood by both the young and the old, by men as well as women, even by children. ~ Ho Chi Minh
Wells quotes by Ho Chi Minh
Once the scent caught me on the street in Greenwich Village. I stopped in my tracks and looked around. Where was it coming from? A shop? The trees? A passerby? I could not tell. I only knew the smell made me cry. I stood on the sidewalk in Greenwich Village as people brushed by, and felt suddenly young and terribly open, as if I were waiting for something. I live in an ocean of smell, and the ocean is my mother. ~ Rebecca Wells
Wells quotes by Rebecca Wells
Like Paul Kraston said, all I ask in life is a water bed, a TV and a typewriter. Well, I'll just have an ordinary bed, a TV and a guitar. ~ John Lennon
Wells quotes by John Lennon
When I was growing up, my parents asked me what I wanted to do, and I said that I wanted to live in Springfield. They were like, "Well, that's not how it works. There is an actor who play Homer, and someone who writes what Homer says." So, I was like, "Well, I want to write what Homer says." ~ Jonah Hill
Wells quotes by Jonah Hill
Sometimes your medicine bottle has on it, 'Shake well before using.' That is what God has to do with some of His people. He has to shake them well before they are ever usable. ~ Vance Havner
Wells quotes by Vance Havner
Well the thing is that the New York of 1846 to 1862 was very different from downtown New York now. Really nothing from that period still exists in New York. ~ Martin Scorsese
Wells quotes by Martin Scorsese
Our challenge is not to educate the children we used to have or want to have, but to educate the children who come to the schoolhouse door. ~ H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I've always believed that if you took one tenth the enrgy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out. ~ Randy Pausch
Wells quotes by Randy Pausch
Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us! ~ Suzanne Collins
Wells quotes by Suzanne Collins
Well, art has to be sexy. ~ Wade Guyton
Wells quotes by Wade Guyton
I had the good fortune of speaking with Orson Wells many decades ago and he said 'Success is primarily luck anyway.' And I have been very lucky. Of course, Orson Wells was enormously talented and brilliant - so who am I to argue with him! ~ George Kennedy
Wells quotes by George Kennedy
A normal person is someone that you don't know very well. ~ Jean Houston
Wells quotes by Jean Houston
It is a little sad how many nights I have spent waiting for some animal to poop. The ~ Jeff Wells
Wells quotes by Jeff Wells
Doing something purely for one's own enjoyment is fine, but, I must admit, finding that others enjoy it as well has a certain power over the corners of my mouth. ~ Jhonen Vasquez
Wells quotes by Jhonen Vasquez
Oh my research. Well, I got an English Degree. And I got that degree in a certain time/at a certain place. If you add UC Berkeley + 1984 the other side of the = is "new historian" meaning that I studied with and was influenced by those who were interested in how the personal shaped the political (and literary), how science and literature might interact, and what the body got to do with it. ~ Laura Mullen
Wells quotes by Laura Mullen
The isness of things is well worth studying; but it is their whyness that makes life worth living. ~ William Beebe
Wells quotes by William Beebe
Well, Doctor, I don't have the diagnosis on that. I'll be sure to do a physical checkup and get back to you. ~ Shaquille O'Neal
Wells quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
Ultimately, work on self is inseperable from work in the world. Each mirrors the other; each is a vehicle for the other. When we change ourselves, our values and actions change as well. When we do work in the world, internal issues arise that we must face or be rendered ineffective. ~ Charles Eisenstein
Wells quotes by Charles Eisenstein
When you act, you're being asked to pretend in a very rigid, controlled environment. It's very un-childlike. So a lot of times, when you put kids in that situation, you hope they have a better support system outside of what they're doing to bring them back to reality at the end of the day and to keep them well-rounded. ~ Patton Oswalt
Wells quotes by Patton Oswalt
What I liked about working with Palmbomen and him being a super crate digger and super well known with all this exotic and unfamiliar music to me. ~ Sam De Jong
Wells quotes by Sam De Jong
