Arrivals quotes by Judy Delton
#1. Many writers believe in arrival without leaving home. They believe in talent but not skill. #Quote by Judy Delton
Arrivals quotes by Alistair Cooke
#2. Texas does not, like any other region, simply have indigenous dishes. It proclaims them. It congratulates you, on your arrival, at having escaped from the slop pails of the other 49 states. #Quote by Alistair Cooke
Arrivals quotes by Frank Moore Colby
#3. We do not mind our not arriving anywhere nearly so much as our not having any company on the way. #Quote by Frank Moore Colby
Arrivals quotes by Jane Harper
#4. The the street was quiet again. Country quiet.

That's partly what took city natives like the Whitlams by surprise, Falk thought: the quiet. He could understand them seeking out the idyllic country lifestyle, a lot of people did. The idea had an enticing, wholesome glow when it was weighed out from the back of a traffic jam, or while crammed into a gardenless apartment. They all had the same visions of breathing fresh clean air and knowing their neighbors. The kids would eat home-grown veggies and learn the value of an honest day's work.

On arrival, as the empty moving truck disappeared form sight, they looked around and were always taken aback by the crushing vastness of the open land. The space was the thing that hit them first. There was so much of it. There was enough to drown in. To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.

Soon, they discovered that the veggies didn't grow as willingly as they had in the city window box. That every single green shoot had to be coaxed and prized from the reluctant soil, and the neighbors were too busy doing the same on an industrial scale to muster much cheer in their greetings. There was no daily bumper-to-bumper commute, but there was also nowhere much to drive to.

Falk didn't blame the Whitlams, he'd seen it many times before when he was a kid. The arrivals looked around at the barrenness and the scale and the sheer bloody hardne #Quote by Jane Harper
Arrivals quotes by John Scalzi
#5. While landing a spacecraft on a planet via Skip Drive navigation was officially and strongly discouraged by the Colonial Union, the Colonial Defense Forces recognized the strategic value of sudden and unexpected arrivals. #Quote by John Scalzi
Arrivals quotes by Franz Kafka
#6. The Messiah will come only when he is no longer necessary, he will come only one day after his arrival, he will not come on the last day, but on the last day of all. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Arrivals quotes by Henry Miller
#7. If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things. #Quote by Henry Miller
Arrivals quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#8. Bubble-gum angels swooped from top margins, or scraped their wings between teeming paragraphs. Maidens with golden hair dripped sea-blue tears into the books spine. Grape-colored whales spouted blood around a newspaper item (pasted in) listing arrivals to the endangered species list. Six hatchlings cried from shattered shells near an entry made on Easter. Cecilia had filled the pages with a profusion of colors and curlicues, Candyland ladders and striped shamrocks. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Arrivals quotes by Gillian Flynn
#9. Danish. I'd come to believe there was no food more depressing than Danish, a pastry that seemed stale upon arrival. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Arrivals quotes by Adela Rogers St. Johns
#10. The modern woman is the curse of the universe. A disaster, that's what. She thinks that before her arrival on the scene no woman ever did anything worthwhile before, no woman was ever liberated until her time, no woman really ever amounted to anything. #Quote by Adela Rogers St. Johns
Arrivals quotes by David Nicholls
#11. What was it, she wondered, this need to brandish his shiny new metropolitan life at her? As soon as she'd met him at the arrivals gate on his return from Thailand, lithe and brown and shaven-headed, she knew that there was no chance of a relationship between them. Too much had happened to him, too little had happened to her. Even so this would be the third girlfriend, lover, whatever, that she had met in the last nine months, Dexter presenting them up to her like a dog with a fat pigeon in his mouth. Was it some kind of some sick revenge for something? Because she got a better degree than him? Didn't he know what this was doing to her, sat at table nine with their groins jammed in each other's faces? #Quote by David Nicholls
Arrivals quotes by Michael Bassey
#12. Buy a gift for a dog, and you'll be amazed at the way it will dance and swerve its tail, but if don't have anything to offer to it, it won't even recognize your arrival; such are the attributes of fake friends. #Quote by Michael Bassey
Arrivals quotes by Neal Shusterman
#13. How many kids are in the Graveyard?"
"A bunch."
"Who sends your supplies?"
"George Washington. Or is it Abraham Lincoln? I forget."
"How often do you receive new arrivals?"
"About as often as you beat your wife. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Arrivals quotes by Richard Curtis
#14. Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around. #Quote by Richard Curtis
Arrivals quotes by Laurent Jalabert
#15. Especially with the signing of riders with climbing abilities and the new arrival of Tyler Hamilton, who has the strength and ability to become a great leader for the big tours. All in all, I feel this is a very complete team. #Quote by Laurent Jalabert
Arrivals quotes by Confucius
#16. Please stop waiting for a better and more appropriate time to become happy and focus on the moment you live in. Happiness is not an arrival, it is the journey itself. Many people seek for happiness above the height of human beings, some below. Yet, happiness is exactly at the exact height of human beings. #Quote by Confucius
Arrivals quotes by Victoria Denault
#17. She's been a barrel of bitchy monkeys since Jordan and I walked out of the Arrivals gate together earlier this afternoon. #Quote by Victoria Denault
Arrivals quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#18. I've always disliked kamikazes, that is, people who commit suicide in order to kill others. Starting with the Japanese ones from World War II. I never considered them Pietro Miccas who torch the powder and go up with the citadel in order to block the arrival of the enemy troops at Torino. I never considered them soldiers. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Arrivals quotes by Rohinton Mistry
#19. In twenty-four years of proofreading, flocks of words flew into my head through the windows of my soul. Some of them stayed on and built nests in there. Why should I not speak like a poet, with a commonwealth of language at my disposal, constantly invigorated by new arrivals? #Quote by Rohinton Mistry
Arrivals quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#20. It's better to think of my life like that - part miracle, part madness. It's better if I accept that I can't control any of the things that matter. My life is a trail of shipwrecks and set-sails. There are no arrivals, no destinations; there are only sandbanks and shipwreck; then another boat, another tide. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Arrivals quotes by Maria Popova
#21. Life is a continual process of arrival into who we are. #Quote by Maria Popova
Arrivals quotes by Alvin Toffler
#22. Future shock is the dizzying disorientation brought on by the premature arrival of the future. #Quote by Alvin Toffler
Arrivals quotes by Nancy Mairs
#23. Out of the new arrivals in our lives
the odd word stumbled upon in a difficult text, the handsome black stranger who bursts in one night through the cat door, the telephone call out of a friend's silence of years, the sudden greeting from the girl-child
we constantly make of ourselves our selves. #Quote by Nancy Mairs
Arrivals quotes by Bill Bruford
#24. I mean, Chris is, I'm sure, a wonderful guy. But in those days he also very, very late. For all appointments and departures and arrivals and sound checks and anything. #Quote by Bill Bruford
Arrivals quotes by Ashley Madekwe
#25. I've been known to spend an afternoon on There's just so much on there, and I can't stand not seeing all the new arrivals just in case I miss out. #Quote by Ashley Madekwe
Arrivals quotes by Ray Bradbury
#26. Someone who loved night arrivals and dark departures, for the hell, the fun, the death of it? #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Arrivals quotes by David Nicholls
#27. As soon as she'd met him at the arrivals gate on his return from Thailand, lithe and brown and shaven-headed, she knew that there was no chance of a relationship between them. Too much had happened to him, too little had happened to her. #Quote by David Nicholls
Arrivals quotes by Jared Polis
#28. From the newest arrivals to our Native American brothers and sisters, we are one America. #Quote by Jared Polis
Arrivals quotes by William Shakespeare
#29. I despised my arrival on this earth and I despise my departure; it is a tragedy. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Arrivals quotes by Preston Sturges
#30. A pretty girl is better than a plain one. A leg is better than an arm. A bedroom is better than a living room. An arrival is better that a departure. A birth is better than a death. A chase is better than a chat. A dog is better than a landscape. A kitten is better than a dog. A baby is better than a kitten. A kiss is better than a baby. A pratfall is better than anything. #Quote by Preston Sturges
Arrivals quotes by Neil Armstrong
#31. In flying, the probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival. #Quote by Neil Armstrong
Arrivals quotes by Henry James
#32. To say that she had a book is to say that her solitude did not press upon her; for her love of knowledge had a fertilizing quality and her imagination was strong. There was at this time, however, a want of lightness in her situation, which the arrival of an unexpected visitor did much to dispel. #Quote by Henry James
Arrivals quotes by Nicholas G. Carr
#33. We become, after the arrival of the printing press in general, more attentive more attuned to contemplative ways of thinking. #Quote by Nicholas G. Carr
Arrivals quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#34. A letter, by its arrival, defrauds us of a whole secret region of our existence, the only region indeed in which the true pleasure of life may be tasted, the region of imagination, creative and protean, the clouds and beautiful shapes of whose heaven are destroyed by the wind of reality. #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Arrivals quotes by Max Hastings
#35. One of Beria's most cynical ruses was carried out in August 1941: NKVD agents disguised as Nazi parachutists were dropped into the Volga German autonomous region, to test the loyalty of its citizens. Villages where the new arrivals were offered shelter were liquidated wholesale; the entire region's surviving population was eventually deported to Siberia and Kazakhstan. #Quote by Max Hastings
Arrivals quotes by J.A. Baker
#36. Wandering flushes a glory that fades with arrival. #Quote by J.A. Baker
Arrivals quotes by Anthony Aveni
#37. Heaven was not so far away in the eyes of these people (the Maya), who believed that individual, civic and social truths could be revealed by consulting with nature: the shifting of the wind, the arrival of the rain, the appearance of the stars #Quote by Anthony Aveni
Arrivals quotes by William Gibson
#38. She knows, now, absolutely, hearing the white noise that is London, that Damien's theory of jet lag is correct: that her mortal soul is leagues behind her, being reeled in on some ghostly umbilical down the vanished wake of the plane that brought her here, hundreds of thousands of feet above the Atlantic. Souls can't move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage. #Quote by William Gibson
Arrivals quotes by Douglas Adams
#39. Even traveling despondently is better than arriving here. To welcome visitors the arrivals hall featured a picture of the president of NowWhat, smiling. It was the only picture anybody could find of him, and it had been taken shortly after he had shot himself, so although the photo had been retouched as well as could be managed, the smile it wore was rather a ghastly one. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Arrivals quotes by John Hume
#40. Before the arrival of the Credit Union, people who were from the poor background or a working class background couldn't borrow from banks. #Quote by John Hume
Arrivals quotes by John Dewey
#41. Traveling is a constant arriving, while arrival that precludes further traveling is most easily attained by going to sleep or dying. #Quote by John Dewey
Arrivals quotes by Rosamunde Pilcher
#42. It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive. Arrival often brings nothing but a sense of desolation and disappointment. #Quote by Rosamunde Pilcher
Arrivals quotes by Crystal Eastman
#43. If the feminist program goes to pieces on the arrival of the first baby, it's false and useless. #Quote by Crystal Eastman
Arrivals quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#44. We lost our innocence in the Fall, and our turn to it is through the Redemption which was brought about by Christ's death and by our slow participation in it. Sentimentality is a skipping of this process in its concrete reality and an early arrival at a mock state of innocence, which strongly suggests its opposite. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Arrivals quotes by Chris Benz
#45. I have specific playlists for arrivals in different cities. Tokyo skews new wave, Paris more jazz, and New York is Top 40. #Quote by Chris Benz
Arrivals quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#46. Ian waited outside the airport in the arrivals lane after they collected their bags. He looked at them and his brows rose. "Where's Denise? And what are you doing with a bloody cat, Charles? Some sort of mascot for our dear Reaper here?" "Not another word," Spade snapped, getting into the car and seating the carrier on his lap. "Ian, trust me - don't," Crispin said before he threw their bags into the boot. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Arrivals quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#47. We had had mass immigration from the late 1800s all the way through the early 1900s to the 1920s, and we had to pause the immigration in order to for the new arrivals to assimilate, to become Americans, to learn English, for one thing. The one thing - or not the one; there are many different things. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Arrivals quotes by Rudolf Arnheim
#48. In a land of immigrants, one was not an alien but simply the latest arrival. #Quote by Rudolf Arnheim
Arrivals quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#49. In Trinidad, where as new arrivals we were a disadvantaged community, that excluding idea was a kind of protection; it enabled us - for the time being, and only for the time being - to live in our own way and according to our own rules, to live in our own fading India. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
Arrivals quotes by Penelope Lively
#50. I am addicted to arrivals, to those innocent dawn moments from which history accelerates. #Quote by Penelope Lively
Arrivals quotes by Rick Yancey
#51. I'm not encouraged by the silence. I can think of no benign reason for it. I'm afraid we may expect something closer to Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas than a scene from Close Encounters, and we all know how that turned out for the Native Americans. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Arrivals quotes by Franz Kafka
#52. In the morning and in the evening and at night in his dreams, this street was filled with constantly bustling traffic, which seen from above seemed like a continually self-replenishing mixture of distorted human figures and of the roofs of all sorts of vehicles, constantly scattered by new arrivals, out of which there arose a new, stronger, wilder mixture of noise, dust, and smells, and, catching and penetrating it all, a powerful light that was continually dispersed, carried away, and avidly refracted by the mass of objects that made such a physical impression on one's dazzled eye that it seemed as if a glass pane, hanging over the street and converging everything, were being smashed again and again with the utmost force. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Arrivals quotes by Hannah Arendt
#53. Naturalization, on the other hand, also proved to be a failure. The whole naturalization system of European countries fell apart when it was confronted with stateless people, and this for the same reasons that the right of asylum had been set aside. Essentially naturalization was an appendage to the nation-state's legislation that reckoned only with "nationals," people born in its territory and citizens by birth. Naturalization was needed in exceptional cases, for single individuals whom circumstances might have driven into a foreign territory. The whole process broke down when it became a question of handling mass applications for naturalization: even from the purely administrative point of view, no European civil service could possibly have dealt with the problem. Instead of naturalizing at least a small portion of the new arrivals, the countries began to cancel earlier naturalizations, partly because of general panic and partly because the arrival of great masses of newcomers actually changed the always precarious position of naturalized citizens of the same origin. Cancellation of naturalization or the introduction of new laws which obviously paved the way for mass denaturalization shattered what little confidence the refugees might have retained in the possibility of adjusting themselves to a new normal life; if assimilation to the new country once looked a little shabby or disloyal, it was now simply ridiculous. The difference between a naturalized citizen and a statele #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Arrivals quotes by Edward Hirsch
#54. He tried to escape he could not
Cut the binding cord of human love [ ... ]
Sweet venom
His arrivals were swift
And his departures sudden
I couldn't understand how
He lifted the shower door
Right off its hinges [ ... ]
Love you he coughed and kissed me
See you next week he was out
The door like a thousand other times [ ... ]
Most reckless of
reckless angels #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Arrivals quotes by Jane Bryant Quinn
#55. The shortest period of time lies between the minute you put some money away for a rainy day and the unexpected arrival of rain. #Quote by Jane Bryant Quinn
Arrivals quotes by Mark Victor Hansen
#56. Miracles never cease to amaze me. I expect them, but their consistent arrival is always delightful to experience. #Quote by Mark Victor Hansen
Arrivals quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#57. Walking is a state in which the mind, body, and the world are aligned ... it produces thoughts, experiences, arrivals. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Arrivals quotes by Constantine P. Cavafy
#58. Have Ithaka always in your mind.
Your arrival there is what you are destined for.
But don't in the least hurry the journey. #Quote by Constantine P. Cavafy
Arrivals quotes by Charlaine Harris
#59. I put the books I was returning on the appropriate desk, and I began looking at the shelves of new arrivals. Most of them were some permutation on self-help. Going by how popular these books were and how often they were checked out, everyone in Bon Temps should have become perfect by now. #Quote by Charlaine Harris
Arrivals quotes by Claire Messud
#60. As my wise friend Didi has more than once observed about life's passages, every departure entails an arrival elsewhere, every arrival implies a departure from afar. #Quote by Claire Messud
Arrivals quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#61. The startings and arrivals of the cars are now the epochs in the village day. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Arrivals quotes by Tiger Woods
#62. It's a never-ending struggle, which is great. You can always get better! You can never get there. It's a journey with no arrival. And that's the beauty of it
that you can always become better the next day. It's pretty cool to think about it in that sense. Tomorrow I will be a better player than I was today. #Quote by Tiger Woods
Arrivals quotes by Alan Cohen
#63. If you act anxiously to hasten your results, you delay their arrival. Calm poise reveals the shortest route home. #Quote by Alan Cohen
Arrivals quotes by Heinz Heger
#64. This man kept us standing and waiting for a good while, while a group of eight to ten Capos gathered round us and looked us up and down… They were on the lookout for a possible lover among the new arrivals. Because I still did not have a full beard, even though nearly twenty-three, so looked younger than my years, and because I had filled out a bit again thanks to the supplementary rations from my Sachsenhausen Capo, I was obviously very much at the center of these Capos' considerations… The situation in which the five of us found ourselves seemed to me very much like a slave-boy market in ancient Rome. #Quote by Heinz Heger
Arrivals quotes by Joe Peterson
#65. Our tomorrows must be met at the time of their arrival ... with the HOPE they are as BEAUTIFUL as today! #Quote by Joe Peterson
Arrivals quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#66. It was like being a prisoner on death row who survives month after month and becomes accustomed to the life, while he registers with an objective eye the horror of the new arrivals: registers it with the same numbness tha he brings to the murders and deaths themselves. All survivor literature talks about this numbness, in which life's functions are reduced to minimum, behavior becomes completely selfish and indifferent to others, and gassing and burning are everyday occurences. In the rare accounts by perpetrators , too, the gas chambers and ovens become ordinary scenary, the perpetrators reduced to their few functions and exhibiting a mental paralysis and indifference, a dullness that makes them seem drugged or drunk. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Arrivals quotes by Benigno Aquino III
#67. Tourism is a crucial industry that could employ millions of Filipinos, skilled and unskilled alike, cross those 7,107 islands of the Philippines. From the current projection of 3.3 million tourist arrivals in 2010, our aim is to eventually attract 6 million tourists. In the process, we expect to create 3 million jobs in the next six years. #Quote by Benigno Aquino III
Arrivals quotes by Alexander Smith
#68. In life there is nothing more unexpected and surprising than the arrivals and departures of pleasure. If we find it in one place today, it is vain to seek it there tomorrow. You can not lay a trap for it. #Quote by Alexander Smith
Arrivals quotes by David Attenborough
#69. I suffer much less than many of my colleagues. I am perfectly able to go to Australia and film within three hours of arrival. #Quote by David Attenborough
Arrivals quotes by C.S. Lewis
#70. Why do I make room in my mind for such filth and nonsense? Do I hope that if feeling disguises itself as thought I shall feel less? Aren't all these notes the senseless writhings of a man who won't accept the fact that there is nothing we can do with suffering except to suffer it? Who still thinks there is some device (if only he could find it) which will make pain not to be pain. It doesn't really matter whether you grip the arms of the dentist's chair or let your hands lie in your lap. The drill drills on. And grief still feels like fear. Perhaps, more strictly, like suspense. Or like waiting; just hanging about waiting for something to happen. It gives life a permanently provisional feeling. It doesn't seem worth starting anything. I can't settle down. I yawn, I fidget, I smoke too much. Up till this I always had too little time. Now there is nothing but time. Almost pure time, empty successiveness. One flesh. Or, if you prefer, one ship. The starboard engine has gone. I, the port engine, must chug along somehow till we make harbour. Or rather, till the journey ends. How can I assume a harbour? A lee shore, more likely, a black night, a deafening gale, breakers ahead - and any lights shown from the land probably being waved by wreckers. Such was H.'s landfall. Such was my mother's. I say their landfalls; not their arrivals. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Arrivals quotes by Ned Sublette
#71. A laborer might last ten years or so before expiring. But individual workers in the death camp of sugar were survived by their culture, which was constantly re-Africanized by fresh arrivals. To that plantation culture, the music of our hemisphere owes no small debt. #Quote by Ned Sublette
Arrivals quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#72. Grief embraced him and welcomed him back, showering tears upon his arrival. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Arrivals quotes by Rick Riordan
#73. We crept along, following the line of new arrivals that snaked from the main gates toward a black-tented pavilion with a banner that read: JUDGMENTS FOR ELYSIUM AND ETERNAL DAMNATION Welcome, Newly Deceased! #Quote by Rick Riordan
Arrivals quotes by Scout Niblett
#74. The beauty of inspiration for me is that you can't predict when it's coming. I like that it just pops up out of nowhere. You just have to be open to its arrival. #Quote by Scout Niblett
Arrivals quotes by David Roediger
#75. In some ways Jews and the various largely Catholic and often poor European immigrant groups were "white," as the historian Tom Guglielmo has recently put it, "on arrival." Where naturalization law was concerned, for example, ample precedents recognized their ability to become citizens, a right explicitly resting on their "whiteness." But they also remained, as Working toward Whiteness puts it, "on trial" for a harrowingly long time. #Quote by David Roediger
Arrivals quotes by Thomas Sydenham
#76. The arrival of a good clown exercises a more beneficial influence upon the health of a town than of twenty asses laden with drugs. #Quote by Thomas Sydenham
Arrivals quotes by Matthew Aaron Goodman
#77. My emotions were arrivals and departures, nonstop insignificances speeding through a station. #Quote by Matthew Aaron Goodman
Arrivals quotes by Connie Zweig
#78. Unconscious of your story, you are in its grasp; but with consciousness, an alchemical process begins: The solidity of the complex dissolves and you can open up to the arrival of a new archetype, the birth of a new cycle of life. In the shadow, then, lies our myth and our fate. #Quote by Connie Zweig
Arrivals quotes by David Crystal
#79. Ever since the arrival of printing - thought to be the invention of the devil because it would put false opinions into people's minds - people have been arguing that new technology would have disastrous consequences for language. #Quote by David Crystal
Arrivals quotes by Thomas Merton
#80. For now, oh my God, it is to You alone that I can talk, because nobody else will understand. I cannot bring any other man on this earth into the cloud where I dwell in Your light, that is, Your darkness, where I am lost and abashed. I cannot explain to any other man the anguish which is Your joy nor the loss which is the Possession of You, nor the distance from all things which is the arrival in You, nor the death which is the birth in You because I do not know anything about it myself and all I know is that I wish it were over - I wish it were begun. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Arrivals quotes by Milarepa
#81. Hasten slowly and ye shall soon arrive. #Quote by Milarepa
Arrivals quotes by Henri Matisse
#82. Arrival = Prison, and the artist must never be a prisoner. #Quote by Henri Matisse
Arrivals quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#83. The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured cosiness. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Arrivals quotes by Sylvia Earle
#84. The observations that have developed over the years have given us perspective about where we fit in. We are newcomers, really recent arrivals on a planet that is four and a half billion years old. #Quote by Sylvia Earle
Arrivals quotes by Eric Schmidt
#85. We're about to see an acceleration in technological platforms that, for marketers, will be on a scale rivalled only by the arrival of color TV. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Arrivals quotes by Rick Yancey
#86. He asks me what happened to my leg. I told him I was shot by a shark. He doesn't react. Doesn't seem confused or amused or anything. Like getting shot by a shark is a perfectly natural thing in the aftermath of the arrival. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Arrivals quotes by Lorrie Moore
#87. No matter that you anticipate a thing; you get so used to it as part of the future that its actuality, its arrival, its force and presence, startles you, takes you by surprise, as would a ghost suddenly appearing in the room wearing familiar perfume and boots. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Arrivals quotes by Jacob Zuma
#88. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival in Cape Town was the beginning of all South Africa's problems. #Quote by Jacob Zuma
Arrivals quotes by Mitch Albom
#89. We move through places every day that would never have been if not for those who came before us. Our workplaces, where we spend so much time
we often think they began with our arrival. That's not true. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Arrivals quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#90. The greatest event for the world is the arrival of a new and wise person. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Arrivals quotes by Michal Coret
#91. Maybe I live in the gates that lead to outbound international flights. Maybe that is home.
And do I feel more comfortable at the departures or at the arrivals? #Quote by Michal Coret
Arrivals quotes by Ken Thompson
#92. A survey of oceanic (i.e. remote) islands found that, as far back as records exist, they have been accumulating alien plants. In 1860 the average oceanic island had less than 1 introduced plant for every 10 natives. By 1940 the ratio was 1 alien for every 2 natives, and today the ratio is about 1:1. Despite all these new arrivals there have been very few extinctions among the original inhabitants, so the number of plant species on such islands has approximately doubled. Thus, although left to themselves remote islands tend to have rather few species (compared to similar continental areas at the same latitude), so many species have been introduced to Hawaii that it now has as many plants as a similar area of Mexico. Moreover, the evidence suggests that remote islands are by no means 'full' of plants, and that there is room for even more alien plants to establish, and thus for total plant diversity to increase: at the current rate the average oceanic island will have 3 aliens for every 2 natives by 2060. Do we have any idea how many different plant species might eventually be able to coexist on an island like Hawaii? No, we don't. Or, to express that conclusion in a more general form, in a report from US ecologists Dov Sax and Steve Gaines: 'we have a relatively poor understanding of the processes that ultimately limit how many species can inhabit any given place or area #Quote by Ken Thompson
Arrivals quotes by Murray Kempton
#93. Any experience deeply felt makes some men better and some men worse. When it has ended, they share nothing but the recollection of a commitment in which each was tested and to some degree found wanting. [ ... ] The consequences of the journey change the voyager so much more than the embarking or the arrival. #Quote by Murray Kempton
Arrivals quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#94. In my life long study of human beings, I have found that no matter how hard they try, they have found no way yet to prevent the arrival of Monday morning. And they do try, of course, but Monday always comes, and all the drones have to scuttle back to their dreary workday lives of meaningless toin and suffering. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Arrivals quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
#95. The future is an empty canvas or a blank sheet of paper, and if you have the courage of your own thought and your own observation you can make of it what you will #Quote by Lewis H. Lapham
Arrivals quotes by Daniel Alarcon
#96. How emigration is actually lived - well, this depends on many factors: education, economic station, language, where one lands, and what support network is in place at the site of arrival. #Quote by Daniel Alarcon
Arrivals quotes by Zadie Smith
#97. This has been the century of strangers, brown, yellow and white. This has been the century of the great immigrant experiment. It is only this late in the day that you can walk into a playground and find Isaac Leung by the fish pond, Danny Rahman in the football cage, Quang O'Rourke bouncing a basketball, and Irie Jones humming a tune. Children with first and last names on a direct collision course. Names that secrete within them mass exodus, cramped boats and planes, cold arrivals, medical checks. It is only this late in the day, and possibly only in Willesden, that you can find best friends Sita and Sharon, constantly mistaken for each other because Sita is white (her mother liked the name) and Sharon is Pakistani (her mother thought it best - less trouble). #Quote by Zadie Smith
Arrivals quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#98. Since we had nothing to do with our arrival and usually are not consulted about our departure, what makes so many of us think we're entitled to so much while we're here? #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Arrivals quotes by Gerri Hirshey
#99. [T]he best, truest popular music is one born of journeys and arrivals, of long odysseys and lightning epiphanies. #Quote by Gerri Hirshey
Arrivals quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#100. 'Welcome to New York,' said the sign. [...] We got our luggage from the carousel and went to queue in the taxi rank outside the arrivals hall. [...] As we waited, this massive yellow car drove by. It must have had nineteen or twenty doors on it.
'I knew the cars here were big,' I slurred, 'but not that big!'
'It's a limousine, you idiot,' said Tony [Iommi]. #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Arrivals quotes by C.L. Wilson
#101. Ellysetta was sitting at the secretary in Rain's suite, penning a note to her parents, when Bel burst through the doors. The other members of the quintet followed so swiftly that all five warriors nearly ended up in a heap on the floor. They were breathless and flushed, perspiration trickling down the sides of their faces.
Kieran bent over, hands on his knees, and dragged air into his lungs. "Well done,brothers. We beat the smug chervil."
"You all look like you could use a drink." Cool and unwinded, Gaelen smiled at the new arrivals from the sofa near the window. "Water? Or perhaps something a little stronger to help you regain your strength? #Quote by C.L. Wilson
Arrivals quotes by Dick Cheney
#102. Two days ahead of schedule, the world witnessed the arrival of a free and sovereign Iraq. #Quote by Dick Cheney
Arrivals quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#103. Life is all arrivals and departures. #Quote by Karen Joy Fowler

Arrivals quotes by J.C. Ryle
#105. What would you expect? Sin will not come to you saying, 'I am sin.' It would do little harm if it did. Sin always seems 'good, pleasant and desirable' at the time of arrival. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Arrivals quotes by Richard Curtis
#106. Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspision love actually is all around. #Quote by Richard Curtis
Arrivals quotes by V. P. Singh
#107. The way people are being displaced, who can stop the arrival of Maoism? #Quote by V. P. Singh
Arrivals quotes by John Desmond Bernal
#108. Hunger and sex still dominate the primitive mammalian side of human existence, but at the present time it looks as if humanity were within sight of their satisfaction. Permanent plenty, no longer a Utopian dream, awaits the arrival of permanent peace. #Quote by John Desmond Bernal
Arrivals quotes by E. M. Forster
#109. George had turned at the sound of her arrival. For a moment he contemplated her, as one who had fallen out of heaven. He saw radiant joy in her face, he saw the flowers beat against her dress in blue waves. The bushes above them closed. He stepped quickly forward and kissed her. Before she could speak, almost before she could feel, a voice called 'Lucy! Lucy! Lucy!' The silence of life had been broken by Miss Bartlett, who stood brown against the view. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Arrivals quotes by Ralph Ellison
#110. And all the more so because the voice seemed well aware that a piece of science fiction was the last thing I aspired to write. In fact, it seemed to tease me with allusions to that pseudoscientific sociological concept which held that most Afro-American difficulties sprang from our "high visibility"; a phrase as double-dealing and insidious as its more recent oxymoronic cousins, "benign neglect" and "reverse discrimination," both of which translate "Keep those Negroes running-but in their same old place." My friends had made wry jokes out of the term for many years, suggesting that while the darker brother was clearly "checked and balanced"-and kept far more checked than balanced-on the basis of his darkness he glowed, nevertheless, within the American conscience with such intensity that most whites feigned moral blindness toward his predicament; and these included the waves of late arrivals who refused to recognize the vast extent to which they too benefited from his second-class status while placing all the blame on white southerners. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Arrivals quotes by Neal Shusterman
#111. So Connor stands there with secret anticipation each time there's a group of new arrivals, hoping beyond hope he'll find that self-righteous, self-important, pain-in-the-ass Lev still alive. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Arrivals quotes by Agatha Christie
#112. All three wore the air of superiority assumed by people who are already in a place when studying new arrivals. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Arrivals quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#113. In the Phaedrus, Plato argued that the new arrival of writing would revolutionize culture for the worst. He suggested that it would substitute reminiscence for thought and mechanical learning for the true dialect of the living quest for truth by discourse and conversation. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Arrivals quotes by Carl Bernstein
#114. John Paul was the first modern pope to grow up in a secular culture: He attended public schools, danced with girls - indeed, as a teenager he had a crush on a beautiful Jewish girl who fled his hometown just ahead of the arrival of the Germans. #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Arrivals quotes by Horatio Nelson
#115. I believe my arrival was most welcome, not only to the
Commander of the Fleet but almost to every individual in it. #Quote by Horatio Nelson
Arrivals quotes by Chris Hogan
#116. Arrival at a new destination only occurs from leaving your current location. #Quote by Chris Hogan
Arrivals quotes by Barack Obama
#117. For all the noise and anger that too often surrounds the immigration debate, America has nothing to fear from today's immigrants. They have come here for the same reason that families have always come here-for the hope that in America, they could build a better life for themselves and their families. Like the waves of immigrants that came before them and the Hispanic Americans whose families have been here for generations, the recent arrival of Latino immigrants will only enrich our country. #Quote by Barack Obama
Arrivals quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#118. The procurator studied the new arrival with avid, and slightly fearful eyes. It was the kind of look one gives someone one has heard of and thought a lot about, and whom one is meeting for the first time. #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Arrivals quotes by Chaim Weizmann
#119. We will establish ourselves in Palestine whether you like it or not ... You can hasten our arrival or you can equally retard it. It is however better for you to help us so as to avoid our constructive powers being turned into a destructive power which will overthrow the world. #Quote by Chaim Weizmann
Arrivals quotes by Darynda Jones
#120. And," Amber said, practically drooling as she ogled him, "it's tradition for new arrivals to help with the pep rally."
Brooklyn quirked her lips in doubt. "Tradition?"
"It's a new tradition," Amber shot back.
"Clearly the deeper meaning of the word has escaped you. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Arrivals quotes by Trevor Francis
#121. The arrival of Ade Akinbiyi gave everyone a lift. He's a natural born goalscorer. #Quote by Trevor Francis
Arrivals quotes by Jane Levy
#122. As an actor, you realize that your whole life is about arrivals and departures. You're always meeting people, you get really close, and then you all have to leave. #Quote by Jane Levy
Arrivals quotes by Rebecca Rasmussen
#123. Used to be when a bird flew into a window, Milly and Twiss got a visit. Milly would put a kettle on and set out whatever culinary adventure she'd gone on that day. For morning arrivals, she offered her famous vanilla drop biscuits and raspberry jam. Twiss would get the medicine bag from the hall closet and sterilize the tools she needed, depending on the seriousness of the injury. A wounded limb was one thing. A wounded crop was another.
People used to come from as far away as Reedsburg and Wilton. Milly would sit with them while Twiss patched up the 'poor old robin' or the 'sweet little meadowlark.' Over the years, the number of visitors had dwindled. Now that the grocery store sold ready-bake biscuits and jelly in all the colors of the rainbow, people didn't bother as much about birds. #Quote by Rebecca Rasmussen
