Alphabet R quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#1. All that paddling around in the alphabet soup of one's childhood, scooping up letters, hoping to arrange them into enlightening sentences that would explain why things had turned out the way they had. It evoked a certain mutiny in me. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Alphabet R quotes by Huston Piner
#2. On Algebra - We're a month into it, and I'm planning to start a real protest movement, one to have X and Y removed from the alphabet. Z is also suspect as far as I'm concerned ... Damn it! They put a man on the moon; can't they find some way to end the scourge of Algebra? #Quote by Huston Piner
Alphabet R quotes by Sarvesh Jain
#3. The difference between lonely and lovely is only of one single alphabet. That single alphabet is called Friends. #Quote by Sarvesh Jain
Alphabet R quotes by Victor Hugo
#4. Equality, citizens, is not the whole of society on a level, a society of tall blades of grass and small oaks, or a number of entangled jealousies. It is, legally speaking, every aptitude having the same opportunity for a career; politically all consciences having the same right. Equality has an organ, gratuitous and compulsory education. We must begin with the right to the alphabet. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Alphabet R quotes by John Ashbery
#5. Vetiver"
Ages passed slowly, like a load of hay,
As the flowers recited their lines
And pike stirred at the bottom of the pond.
The pen was cool to the touch.
The staircase swept upward
Through fragmented garlands, keeping the melancholy
Already distilled in letters of the alphabet.

It would be time for winter now, its spun-sugar
Palaces and also lines of care
At the mouth, pink smudges on the forehead and cheeks,
The color once known as "ashes of roses.-"
How many snakes and lizards shed their skins
For time to be passing on like this,
Sinking deeper in the sand as it wound toward
The conclusion. It had all been working so well and now,
Well, it just kind of came apart in the hand
As a change is voiced, sharp
As a fishhook in the throat, and decorative tears flowed
Past us into a basin called infinity.

There was no charge for anything, the gates
Had been left open intentionally.
Don't follow, you can have whatever it is.
And in some room someone examines his youth,
Finds it dry and hollow, porous to the touch...
O keep me with you, unless the outdoors
Embraces both of us, unites us, unless
The birdcatchers put away their twigs,
The fishermen haul in their sleek empty nets
And others become part of the immense crowd
Around this bonfire, a situation
That has come to mean us to us, and the crying
In the leave #Quote by John Ashbery
Alphabet R quotes by Russell Smith
#6. Possibly the strangest book ever made, the 'Codex Seraphinianus' is an encyclopedia of an imaginary world, with illegible calligraphy - it is written in an alphabet no one can understand - and surreal drawings of odd beasts and machines. #Quote by Russell Smith
Alphabet R quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#7. The alphabet and print technology fostered and encouraged a fragmenting process, a process of specialism and detachment. Electric technology fosters and encourages unification and involvement. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Alphabet R quotes by Alice Sebold
#8. In moments like this she thought of all the little girls who grew into adulthood and old age as a sort of cipher alphabet for all those who didn't. Their lives would somehow be inextricably attached to all the girls who had been killed. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Alphabet R quotes by Woody Allen
#9. The great question of philosophy remains: If life is meaningless, what can be done about alphabet soup? #Quote by Woody Allen
Alphabet R quotes by Tom Robbins
#10. To pragmatists, the letter Z is nothing more than a phonetically symbolic glyph, a minor sign easily learned, readily assimilated, and occasionally deployed in the course of a literate life. To cynics, Z is just an S with a stick up its butt.
Well, true enough, any word worth repeating is greater than the sum of its parts; and the particular word-part Z can, from a certain perspective, appear anally wired.
On those of us neither prosaic nor jaded, however, those whom the Fates have chosen to monitor such things, Z has had an impact above and beyond its signifying function. A presence in its own right, it's the most distant and elusive of our twenty-six linguistic atoms; a mysterious, dark figure in an otherwise fairly innocuous lineup, and the sleekest little swimmer ever to take laps in a bowl of alphabet soup.
Scarcely a day of my life has gone by when I've not stirred the alphabetical ant nest, yet every time I type or pen the letter Z, I still feel a secret tingle, a tiny thrill…
Z is a whip crack of a letter, a striking viper of a letter, an open jackknife ever ready to cut the cords of convention or peel the peach of lust.
A Z is slick, quick, arcane, eccentric, and always faintly sinister - although its very elegance separates it from the brutish X, that character traditionally associated with all forms of extinction. If X wields a tire iron, Z packs a laser gun. Zap! If X is Mike Hammer, Z is James Bond. If X marks the spot, Z avoids the spot, #Quote by Tom Robbins
Alphabet R quotes by Victor Hugo
#11. One might almost say that affinities begin with the letters of the alphabet. In that sequence, O and P are inseparable. You might just as well say O and P as Orestes and Pylades.
A true satellite of Enjolras, Grantaire lived within this circle of young men. He dwelt among them, only with them was he happy, he followed them everywhere. His pleasure was to watch these figures come and go in a wine-induced haze. They put up with him because of his good humour.
In his belief, Enjolras looked down on this sceptic; and in his sobriety, on this drunkard. He spared him a little lordly pity.
Grantaire was an unwanted Pylades. Always snubbed by Enjolras, spurned, rebuffed and back again for more, he said of Enjolras, 'What marmoreal magnificence'. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Alphabet R quotes by Bob Hicok
#12. Truth About Love"

I apologize for not being Gandhi or Tom
the mailman who is always kind.

He makes his way every day no matter
the mood of the sky with our words

in a sack and Gandhi made the English
give India back without

taking a gun for a wife. My contribution
to the common good is playing

with the alphabet in a little room
while the world goes foraging

for food. I'm a better poet than man
and it's well known how little

my verbs are worth. I am my only subject,
being the god of my horizons.

What saves me is that just beyond my skin
the world of yours is where

I'd rather live. The AMA says you've added
seven point six years to my life.

In a phrase, love is a transfer of wealth.
This is why Adam Smith gave up

romantic verse. In trying to say what can't
be said I'll take the Dragnet

approach. Just the facts. I'd be dead
sooner without you, you'll die faster

for being a Mrs., raw deal can't be more
clearly defined. To make amends

I offer ten percent more kisses each year.
Or do I do more harm the closer

we become? If yes, leaving would be love
and a better man might. But my thrills

are selfishly domestic. I like sweeping words
into piles and whispering good night. #Quote by Bob Hicok
Alphabet R quotes by Sarah Cross
#13. Art is a kind of magic. Creativity is mysterious, even to artists, who might be able to name their inspiration but can't always explain how their influences and experiences came together to create this new thing- this painting, this story, this song. If you break art down to its base elements, there's nothing miraculous about the letters of the alphabet or a drop of paint. But an artist can put those elements together to create something powerful, something that moves us and withstands the test of time. A work that no one but that artist could have imagined, let alone created. #Quote by Sarah Cross
Alphabet R quotes by Stephane Mallarme
#14. Verse is everywhere in language where there is rhythm, everywhere, except in notices and on page four of the papers. In the genre called prose, there are verses [ ... ] of all rhythms. But in truth there is no prose: there is the alphabet, and then verses more or less tight, more or less diffuse. #Quote by Stephane Mallarme
Alphabet R quotes by Penny Reid
#15. Life is alphabet soup, Elizabeth. Eat that soup." *** #Quote by Penny Reid
Alphabet R quotes by Joshua Foer
#16. Forgotten phone numbers and birthdays represent minor erosions of our everyday memory, but they are part of a much larger story of how we've supplanted our own natural memory with a vast superstructure of technological crutches - from the alphabet to the BlackBerry. These technologies of storing information outside our minds have helped make our modern world possible, but they've also changed how we think and how we use our brains. #Quote by Joshua Foer
Alphabet R quotes by Simon Newcomb
#17. I was taught the alphabet by my aunts before I was four years old, and I was reading the Bible in class and beginning geography when I was six. #Quote by Simon Newcomb
Alphabet R quotes by Joseph Telushkin
#18. The Rebbe now spoke in a manner that anticipated the work that was later to be done by the shluchim whom he dispatched throughout the United States and the world: "One must go to a place where nothing is known of Godliness, nothing is known of Judaism, nothing is even known of the Hebrew alphabet, and while there, put one's own self aside and ensure that the other calls out to God! . . . Indeed, if one wants to ensure his own connection to God, he must make sure that the other person not only becomes familiar with but actually calls out to God!" It was not enough, it was never enough, to simply practice Judaism by oneself or in an already religiously observant community; one has to bring others to embrace God as well #Quote by Joseph Telushkin
Alphabet R quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#19. Action, looks, words, steps, form the alphabet by which you may spell character. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Alphabet R quotes by Jared Diamond
#20. The King's 28 letters have been described by scholars as the world's best alphabet and the most scientific system of writing. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Alphabet R quotes by Norval Morrisseau
#21. I transmit astral plane harmonies through my brushes into the physical plane. These otherworld colours are reflected in the alphabet of nature, a grammar in which the symbols are plants, animals, birds, fishes, earth and sky. I am merely a channel for the spirit to utilize, and it is needed by a spirit starved society. #Quote by Norval Morrisseau
Alphabet R quotes by Myla Goldberg
#22. Rushing toward her are all the letters of the alphabet. Each one moves in its own way, X cartwheeling over and over, C hopping forward, M and N marching stiff-legged and resolute. #Quote by Myla Goldberg
Alphabet R quotes by Roz Chast
#23. I sometimes suffer from insomnia. And when I can't fall asleep, I play what I call the alphabet game. #Quote by Roz Chast
Alphabet R quotes by Marcel Duchamp
#24. The Chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chessboard, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem #Quote by Marcel Duchamp
Alphabet R quotes by Nick Wilgus
#25. Well, it's like they say," Mrs. Ledbetter offered, "if Plan A doesn't work, the alphabet has twenty-five other letters to choose from. #Quote by Nick Wilgus
Alphabet R quotes by Charles Wright
#26. Arrange your unutterable alphabet, my man, / and hold tight. / It's all you've got, a naming of things, and not so beautiful. #Quote by Charles Wright
Alphabet R quotes by Arthur Koestler
#27. The same make of organelles functions in the cells of mice and men; the same make of contractile protein serves the motion of amoeba and of the pianist's fingers; the same four chemical units constitute the alphabet of heredity throughout the animal and plant kingdoms-only the words are different for every creature. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Alphabet R quotes by Lisa Borden
#28. If you aren't outraged, then you just aren't paying attention #Quote by Lisa Borden
Alphabet R quotes by Claire Cook
#29. If plan A doesn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters - 204 if you're in Japan. #Quote by Claire Cook
Alphabet R quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#30. The Phoenicians are also credited with the first alphabet. Chinese and Egyptian languages used pictographs, drawings depicting objects or concepts. Babylonian, which became the international language in the Middle East, also #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Alphabet R quotes by Dan Skinner
#31. Faggot, queer, fairy. Those words aren't taught in a history course. You don't learn them with the alphabet. Discrimination comes from the circles you're supposed to trust. The home, the family, the church. They try to convince you God made you in his image, and then would destroy you because you weren't good enough. That's a good God? Who comes up with this crap? #Quote by Dan Skinner
Alphabet R quotes by Beryl Dov
#32. The ABCs of Going Down
If you use the alphabet technique
when you go down on a woman for the first time,
remember to skip the letter 'X'~
otherwise she might feel she was targeted. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Alphabet R quotes by Voltaire
#33. In short, the alphabet was the origin of all man's knowledge, and of all his errors. #Quote by Voltaire
Alphabet R quotes by Virginia Postrel
#34. For designers, the rigidity of an alphabet presents a never-ending artistic challenge: How do you do something new and still preserve the letters' essential forms? #Quote by Virginia Postrel
Alphabet R quotes by Andre Kertesz
#35. If you want to write you should learn the alphabet. You write and write and in the end you hava a beautiful, perfect alphabet. But it isn't the alphabed that is important. The important thing is what you are writing, what you are expressing. The same thing goes for photography. Photographs can be technically perfect and even beautiful, but they have no expression. #Quote by Andre Kertesz
Alphabet R quotes by Giorgio Armani
#36. I've always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet. #Quote by Giorgio Armani
Alphabet R quotes by Virginia Woolf
#37. And he went on reading. His lips twitched. It filled him. It fortified him. He clean forgot all the little rubs and digs or the evening, and how it bored him unutterably to sit still while people ate and drank interminably, and his being so irritable with his wife and so touchy and minding when they passed his books over as if they didn't exist at all. But now, he felt, it didn't matter a damn who reached Z (if thought ran like an alphabet from A to Z). Somebody would reach it - if not he, then another. This man's strength and sanity, his feeling for straightforward simple things, these fishermen, the poor old crazed creature in Mucklebackit's cottage made him feel so vigorous, so relieved of something that he felt roused and triumphant and could not choke back his tears. Raising the book a little to hide his face, he let them fall and shook his head from side to side and forgot himself completely (but not one or two reflections about morality and French novels and English novels and Scott's hands being tied but his view perhaps being as true as the other view), forgot his own bothers and failures completely in poor Steenie's drowning and Mucklebackit's sorrow (that was Scott at his best) and the astonishing delight and feeling of vigour that it gave him. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Alphabet R quotes by Stacy Allison
#38. That's exactly what climbing is to me ... Expression. What a painter does on a canvas, what a writer can do with the twenty-six letters in the alphabet. It's the key that unlocks my spirit, the clearest representation of who I am. When I'm focused, climbing is almost an unconscious act for me. I don't have to drive myself, I'm already driven. #Quote by Stacy Allison
Alphabet R quotes by Ben Yagoda
#39. designer can inject the most artistic flair. The word "ampersand" didn't come into being until the nineteenth century. At that time & was customarily taught as the twenty-seventh letter of the alphabet and pronounced "and." When schoolchildren recited their ABCs, they concluded with the words "and, per se [i.e., by itself ], 'and.'" This eventually became corrupted to "ampersand." The symbol is a favorite of law and #Quote by Ben Yagoda
Alphabet R quotes by Frederic Goudy
#40. Of all the achievements of the human mind, the birth of the alphabet is the most momentous. #Quote by Frederic Goudy
Alphabet R quotes by Carl Sandburg
#41. Poetry is a type-font design for an alphabet of fun, hate, love, death. #Quote by Carl Sandburg
Alphabet R quotes by Elana K. Arnold
#42. Marissa keeps herself entertained by rating the guys that cruise by. She has her own rating scale: each guy is assigned a letter of the alphabet. But it isn't A to Z order - Marissa must have like a touch of autism or something, because she has this theory that some letters are sexier than others. #Quote by Elana K. Arnold
