#11. What I've always taken away from his words is the sense that we all have something that confines us, that seeks to define us, label us, belittling us in the process, shortchanging our potential. Can it be that that is our sanctuary, our refuge, our way to liberty? #Quote by Noorilhuda

"Oh yes?" His eyes lit with enthusiasm. I was speaking his language now. "Guy Pearce in L.A. Confidential or William Hurt in Body Heat?"
"I was thinking more like Woody Allen in Play It Again, Sam. #Quote by Josh Lanyon

Amateur Sleuth quotes by Marissa Meyer
#20. Scrubbing away the last bit of the painting - her own amateur portrait - Cinder stepped back to join him. The ship no longer looked like the Rampion she'd come to think of as home. It no longer looked like the stolen ship of Captain Carswell Thorne.
She swallowed the lump in her throat.
All around her, strangers were helping to gather up the painting supplies, scrubbing paint off one another's faces, pausing to take enormous drinks of water, and smiling. Smiling because they'd spent the morning together, accomplishing something. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Emil M. Cioran

Amateur Sleuth quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#23. Sure there are times when one cries with acidity,
'Where are the limits of human stupidity?'
Here is a critic who says as a platitude
That I am guilty because 'in gratitude
Sherlock, the sleuth-hound, with motives ulterior,
Sneers at Poe's Dupin as "very inferior".'
Have you not learned, my esteemed communicator,
That the created is not the creator?
As the creator I've praised to satiety
Poe's Monsieur Dupin, his skill and variety,
And have admitted that in my detective work
I owe to my model a deal of selective work.
But is it not on the verge of inanity
To put down to me my creation's crude vanity?
He, the created, would scoff and would sneer,
Where I, the creator, would bow and revere.
So please grip this fact with your cerebral tentacle:
The doll and its maker are never identical. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Peter Schjeldahl
#24. Rembrandt was way ahead of his time. It's as if he was painting an amateur theatrical, or a professional theatrical, in his studio. It's a kind of performance. #Quote by Peter Schjeldahl
Amateur Sleuth quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#25. Give me the artist who breathes it like a native, and goes about his work in it as quietly as a common man goes about his ordinary business. Mozart did so; and that is why I like him. Even if I did not, I should pretend to; for a taste in his music is a mark of caste among musicians, and should be worn, like a tall hat, by the amateur who wishes to pass for a true Brahmin. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Henry Bessemer
#26. At this period the enthusiasm of the amateur was fast giving way to a more steady commercial instinct, and I let no opportunity slip of improving my position, but I felt that I was still labouring under the disadvantage of not having acquired some technical profession. #Quote by Henry Bessemer
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#27. An amateur can be great in front of the camera, but you need an education to get on stage where you have full control as an actor. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Steven Pressfield
#28. The amateur has a long list of fears. Near the top are two: Solitude and silence. The amateur fears solitude and silence because she needs to avoid, at all costs, the voice inside her head that would point her toward her calling and her destiny. So she seeks distraction. The amateur prizes shallowness and shuns depth. The culture of Twitter and Facebook is paradise for the amateur. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Amateur Sleuth quotes by John Berry Hobbs
#29. We are such sticklers for tradition in insisting on an amateur captain, regardless of the question of whether he can pull his weight as a player. The time is coming when we will have to change our views [...] when there will be no amateurs of sufficient ability to put into an England side. #Quote by John Berry Hobbs
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Joel Henry Hildebrand
#30. The invention of IQ did a great disservice to creativity in education ... Individuality, personality, originality, are too precious to be meddled with by amateur psychiatrists whose patterns for a "wholesome personality" are inevitably their own. #Quote by Joel Henry Hildebrand
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Arthur Harry Church
#31. It was to Hofmeister, working as a young man, an amateur and enthusiast, in the early morning hours of summer months, before business, at Leipzig in the years before 1851, that the vision first appeared of a common type of Life-Cycle, running through Mosses and Ferns to Gymnosperms and Flowering Plants, linking the whole series in one scheme of reproduction and life-history. #Quote by Arthur Harry Church
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Steven Pressfield
#32. The amateur allows his worth and identity to be defined by others. The amateur craves third-party validation. The amateur is tyrannized by his imagined conception of what is expected of him. He is imprisoned by what he believes he ought to think, how he ought to look, what he ought to do, and who he ought to be. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Freya Stark
#33. The true gardener then brushes over the ground with slow and gentle hand, to liberate a space for breath round some favorites; but he is not thinking about destruction except incidentally. It is only the amateur like myself who becomes obsessed and rejoices with a sadistic pleasure in weeds that are big and bad enough to pull, and at last, almost forgetting the flowers altogether, turns into a Reformer. #Quote by Freya Stark
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Lydia Ko
#34. I've played such good golf, and it was hard coming up and it wasn't easy in any matches or any shots. It means a lot. I think hopefully it will mean a lot to New Zealand because I'm the next winner of the U.S. Amateur after Danny Lee. #Quote by Lydia Ko
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Gore Vidal
#35. I Must warn you, Iris, that I'm not a believer. And though I'm sure that the revelations of other men must be a source of infinite satisfaction to them, individually, I shouldn't for one second be so presumptuous as to make a choice among the many thousands of recorded revelations of truth, accepting one at the expense of all the others: I might so easily choose wrong and get into eternal trouble. And you must admit that the selection is wide, and dangerous to the amateur. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Kirsten Miller
#36. To those of you who are sticklers for safety and approach life with all the caution of amateur beekeepers, I can offer no excuse for what I did then. I'll admit that a more mature human being would never have let her curiosity take control. Thankfully, I was twelve years old and fully prepared to meet the challenge at hand. #Quote by Kirsten Miller
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#37. The poet, the artist, the sleuth - whoever sharpens our perception tends to be antisocial; rarely "well-adjusted", he cannot go along with currents and trends. A strange bond often exists between antisocial types in their power to see environments as they really are. This need to interface, to confront environments with a certain antisocial power is manifest in the famous story "The Emperor's New Clothes". #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Andrew Solomon
#38. A witness can be of more value than a policy analyst. An amateur witness, free of conceptual bias, sometimes sees the plainest truth. One should never be blinded by tailoring. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Lee Siegel
#39. I love the idea of the amateur - that's what popular culture is all about. But what the Internet's doing is professionalizing everyone's amateuristic impulses. #Quote by Lee Siegel
Amateur Sleuth quotes by David Sarnoff
#40. I ... began my career as a wireless amateur. After 43 years in radio, I do not mind confessing that I am still an amateur. Despite many great achievements in the science of radio and electronics, what we know today is far less than what we have still to learn. #Quote by David Sarnoff
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Archibald MacLeish
#41. The first discipline is the realization that there is a discipline - -that all art begins and ends with discipline, that any art is first and foremost a craft. We have gone far enough on the road to self-indulgence now to know that. The man who announces to the world that he is going to "do his thing" is like the amateur on the high-diving platform who flings himself into the void shouting at the judges that he is going to do whatever comes naturally. He will land on his ass. Naturally. You'd think, to listen to the loudspeakers that surround us, that no man had ever tried to "do his thing" before. Every poet worth reading has, but those really worth reading have understood that to do your thing you have to learn first what your thing is and second how to go about doing it. #Quote by Archibald MacLeish
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Kurt Angle
#42. My true love is with amateur wrestlin;, that's where I was born. I've always wanted to wrestle. #Quote by Kurt Angle

Amateur Sleuth quotes by Zoe Tapper
#45. I fell in love with acting at around the age of 11, when I was drafted in to play a fairy at an amateur production of 'Midsummer Night's Dream.' #Quote by Zoe Tapper
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Alfred Stieglitz
#46. Let me here call attention to one of the most universally popular mistakes that have to do with photography - that of classing supposedly excellent work as professional, and using the term amateur to convey the idea of immature productions and to excuse atrociously poor photographs. #Quote by Alfred Stieglitz
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Alexander Pope
#47. Every professional was once an amateur. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Alan Alda

#49. My tongue tasted like a gladiator's jockstrap [Marcus Corvinus after a night out] #Quote by David Wishart
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Vox Day
#50. The Social Justice Warrior is best regarded as a sort of unpaid amateur propagandist. SJWs are clearly not insane, as their observable discomfort with the more troubling and problematic aspects of reality suffices to demonstrate that they are able to distinguish between that which is real and that which is not. They are also not sociopathic because they are herd animals who are often willing to lie in the perceived interest of the herd-defined narrative, not only in their own immediate interest. Also unlike sociopaths, they are seldom inclined to deny previous statements when caught out but instead tend to respond by moving the goalposts, abruptly falling silent, or otherwise ending the conversation. #Quote by Vox Day
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Gregory Benford
#51. As fandom grew more variegated, genzines reflected a broadening of interests, carrying personal columns of humor and reflection, science articles, amateur fiction, stylish gossip, and inevitably, thoughtful pieces on the future of fandom. #Quote by Gregory Benford
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Terry Pratchett
#52. The dwarfs were staring at Lady Sybil as she changed up through the gears into full, operatic voice. For an amateur soprano she had an impressive delivery and range, a touch too wobbly for the professional stage but exactly the kind of high coloratura to impress the dwarfs. Snow #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Catherine Zeta-Jones
#53. I had - along with my singing and dancing, I was very happy to be born in the hometown of Dylan Thomas. So the government was financing dramatic groups and amateur dramatics and stuff like that. #Quote by Catherine Zeta-Jones
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Junior Ming
#54. A great photographer show off his talent & awards on facebook.
An amateur photographer show off his work and skill on facebook.
A foolgrapher show off his camera and how he holds it, on facebook. #Quote by Junior Ming
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon

"Do we need to get you a Midol before we go?" – Sundown
"I'm not that easy to soothe, cowboy. My peeves are on a cellular level." – Sasha #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Kurt Angle
#56. I'm not going to be a guy that retires and keeps coming back. When I'm gone, I'm gone. Same thing as amateur wrestling; when I won the world championships in Olympics, I left and I never went back. Same for pro. #Quote by Kurt Angle
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Mike Bove

Amateur Sleuth quotes by Gary Weiss
#59. Numerous academic studies have shown that amateur investors make poor traders - buying stocks for the wrong reasons, holding losers for too long, and acting on whims and emotions. #Quote by Gary Weiss
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#60. Sometime look at a novice workman or a bad workman and compare his expression with that of a craftsman whose work you know is excellent and you'll see the difference. The craftsman isn't ever following a single line of instruction. He's making decisions as he goes along. For that reason he'll be absorbed and attentive to what he's doing even though he doesn't deliberately contrive this. His motions and the machine are in a kind of harmony. He isn't following any set of written instructions because the nature of the material at hand determines his thoughts and motions, which simultaneously change the nature of the material at hand. The material and his thoughts are changing together in a progression of changes until his mind's at rest at the same time the material's right. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Edmund Hillary
#61. I think the really good mountaineer is the man with the technical ability of the professional and with the enthusiasm and freshness of approach of the amateur. #Quote by Edmund Hillary
Amateur Sleuth quotes by Michel-Rolph Trouillot
#62. But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands. #Quote by Michel-Rolph Trouillot
Amateur Sleuth quotes by David Levithan
#63. It's almost scary how amateur I am when it comes to musicals - I'm a musical goer, but I am not as obsessed with musicals as perhaps some of my theatrical friends are. #Quote by David Levithan
