Boasts Synonym quotes by H.L. Mencken
#1. The man who boasts that he habitually tells the truth is simply a man with no respect for it. It is not a thing to be thrown about loosely, like small change; it is something to be cherished and hoarded and disbursed only when absolutely necessary. The smallest atom of truth represents some man's bitter toil and agony; for every ponderable chunk of it there is a brave truth-seeker's grave upon some lonely ash-dump and a soul roasting in Hell. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Boasts Synonym quotes by Miguel El Portugues
#2. Whom boasts about his happiness, cause doesn't got it! #Quote by Miguel El Portugues
Boasts Synonym quotes by William Hope Hodgson
#3. There had stood a great house in the centre of the gardens, where now was left only that fragment of ruin. This house had been empty for a great while; years before his - the ancient man's - birth. It was a place shunned by the people of the village, as it had been shunned by their fathers before them. There were many things said about it, and all were of evil. No one ever went near it, either by day or night. In the village it was a synonym of all that is unholy and dreadful. #Quote by William Hope Hodgson
Boasts Synonym quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#4. Youth boasts of strength;
age boasts of wisdom. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Boasts Synonym quotes by Eula Biss
#5. And when comfort is what we want, one of the most powerful tonics alternative medicine offers is the word 'natural.' This word implies a medicine untroubled by human limitations, contrived wholly by nature or God or perhaps intelligent design. What 'natural' has come to mean to us in the context of medicine is 'pure' and 'safe' and 'benign'. But the use of 'natural' as a synonym for 'good' is almost certainly a product of our profound alienation from the natural world. #Quote by Eula Biss
Boasts Synonym quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#6. The commentator may be excused for repeating what he has stressed in his own books and lectures, namely that "offensive" is frequently but a synonym for "unusual;" and a great work of art is of course always original, and thus by its very nature should come more or less as a shocking surprise. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Boasts Synonym quotes by Barry Eisler
#7. I thought of how Midori had once articulated the idea of mono no aware, a sensibility that, though frequently obscured during cherry blossom viewing by the cacophony of drunken doggerel and generator-powered television sets, remains steadfast in one of the two cultures from which I come. She had called it "the sadness of being human." A wise, accepting sadness, she had said. I admired her for the depths of character such a description indicated. For me, sad has always been a synonym for bitter, and I suspect this will always be so. #Quote by Barry Eisler
Boasts Synonym quotes by Karl Kraus
#8. A "seducer" who boasts of initiating women into the mystery of love is like a stranger who arrives at a railroad station and offers to show the sights to a tourist guide. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Boasts Synonym quotes by BS Murthy
#9. The boasts of men about their conquests would seem hollow since it's the vulnerability of women that fetches them their favors.. #Quote by BS Murthy
Boasts Synonym quotes by Janice Lane Palko
#10. I'll have you know Southern isn't a synonym for stupid. #Quote by Janice Lane Palko
Boasts Synonym quotes by Jodi Picoult
#11. Purgatory, he thought, was just a synonym for 'tomorrow'. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Boasts Synonym quotes by Michael Parenti
#12. The diseconomies of capitalism are treated as the public's responsibility. Corporate America skims the cream and leaves the bill for us to pay, then boasts about how productive and efficient it is and complains about our wasteful government. #Quote by Michael Parenti
Boasts Synonym quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#13. Violation is a synonym for intercourse. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Boasts Synonym quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#14. He who boasts of being perfect is perfect in folly. I never saw a perfect man. Every rose has its thorns, and every day its night. Even the sun shows spots, and the skies are darkened with clouds; and faults of some kind nestle in every bosom. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Boasts Synonym quotes by Joe Biden
#15. As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, DC as the "capital of the free world." But it seems to me that this great city (Brussels), which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title. #Quote by Joe Biden
Boasts Synonym quotes by Theodore Levitt
#16. Ideation is not a synonym for innovation, conformity is not its simple antonym, and innovation is not the automatic consequence of "creative thinking.". #Quote by Theodore Levitt
Boasts Synonym quotes by John Kessel
#17. Coaches and players at the start must think their way through problems where a more experienced person would react out of habit and memory. One must not gain this experience, however, without being careful of empty redundancy. Do not fall into the error of the artist who boasts of 20 years of experience at his craft while, in fact, all he has had is one year - 20 times. #Quote by John Kessel
Boasts Synonym quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#18. There is no such thing as an exact synonym and no such thing as an unmixed motive. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Boasts Synonym quotes by Nicholas Meyer
#19. So the Lincoln movie gets trashed because Connecticut voted for the amendment - not to mention how the people in Connecticut feel - but there's a lot of that. And I think it precedes from a fundamental misunderstanding of cinema. They are entertainment. And I'd like to say that entertainment isn't a synonym for disposable or mindless or stupid. Hamlet? Pretty entertaining from where I come from. #Quote by Nicholas Meyer
Boasts Synonym quotes by Robert Lane Greene
#20. Americans tend to use "nation" as a synonym for "country." But political scientists and historians, as well as many Europeans, tend to use the term for a much more specific phenomenon: a group of people who feel they belong together, whether they have a country of their own or not. #Quote by Robert Lane Greene
Boasts Synonym quotes by Eloisa James
#21. Discretion is a synonym for intelligence. #Quote by Eloisa James
Boasts Synonym quotes by Washington Allston
#22. Reputation is but a synonym of popularity: dependent on suffrage, to be increased or diminished at the will of the voters. #Quote by Washington Allston
Boasts Synonym quotes by Thomas More
#23. Besides, they say, when we eat something, what really happens is this. Our failing health starts fighting off the attacks of hunger, using the food as an ally. Gradually it begins to prevail, and, in this very process of winning back its normal strength, experiences the sense of enjoyment which we find so refreshing. Now, if health enjoys the actual battle, why wouldn't it also enjoy the victory? Or are we to suppose that when it has finally managed to regain its former vigour - the one thing that it has been fighting for all this time - it promptly falls into a coma, and fails to notice or take advantage of its success? As for the idea that one isn't conscious of health except through its opposite, they say that's quite untrue. Everyone's perfectly aware of feeling well, unless he's asleep or actually feeling ill. Even the most insensitive and apathetic sort of person will admit that it's delightful to be healthy - and what is delight, but a synonym for pleasure? #Quote by Thomas More
Boasts Synonym quotes by Ayn Rand
#24. Observe, in politics, that the term extremism has become a synonym of "evil," regardless of the content of the issue (the evil is not what you are extreme about, but that you are "extreme" - i.e., consistent). #Quote by Ayn Rand
Boasts Synonym quotes by Donald Worster
#25. Human domination over nature is quite simply an illusion, a passing dream by a naive species. It is an illusion that has cost us much, ensnared us in our own designs, given us a few boasts to make about our courage and genius, but all the same it is an illusion. #Quote by Donald Worster
Boasts Synonym quotes by John Barrymore
#26. I am thinking of taking a fifth wife. Why not? Solomon had a thousand wives and he is a synonym for wisdom. #Quote by John Barrymore
Boasts Synonym quotes by Douglas M. Jones III
#27. Even more interesting is that with all these millions of "fortuitous" colors, it appears that particularity is so rampant that any object we identify as, say, "blue" shares almost nothing in common with any other object we might identify as the same color. We tend to
think that color operates like crayons. We use one crayon to fill in a tree, a bird, jacket, and a roof. But it appears that the same color can be served by very different microstructures. For example, what we see as simple blue can be produced by incandescnce, transitions, vibrations, refraction, scattering, diffraction, etc. As Hardin points out, the "same blue" found in the sky, water, a rainbow, a beetle, a sapphire, the star Sirius, and a television dot results from very different microstructures. This may be a tough swallow for some Platonists who hope for a uniform basis for each color, but it should be a joy for those who seek to honor our God of the details. Like the true particularity of the persons of the Trinity, creation boasts in real individuality too. #Quote by Douglas M. Jones III
Boasts Synonym quotes by George Carlin
#28. Is there another word for synonym? #Quote by George Carlin
Boasts Synonym quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#29. Thus far then have we travelled along the terrible road we chose at the call of duty. The mood of Britain is wisely and rightly averse from every form of shallow or premature exultation. This is no time for boasts or glowing prophecies, but there is this: A year ago our position looked forlorn, and well nigh desperate to all eyes but our own. To-day we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: 'We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Boasts Synonym quotes by Louise Gluck
#30. Panic is a synonym for being; in its delays, in its swerving and rushing syntax, its frantic lists and questions, it fends off time and loss. Its opposite is oblivion: not the tranquil oblivion of sleep but the threatening oblivions of sex and death. #Quote by Louise Gluck
Boasts Synonym quotes by Tim Ferriss
#31. Excitement is the more practical synonym for happiness, and it is precisely what you should strive to chase. It is the cure-all. #Quote by Tim Ferriss
Boasts Synonym quotes by Dave Barry
#32. Although it was constructed in 1536, the New York subway system boasts an annual maintenance budget of nearly $8, currently stolen, and it does a remarkable job of getting New Yorkers from Point A to an indeterminate location somewhere in the tunnel leading to point B. #Quote by Dave Barry
Boasts Synonym quotes by Danelle Harmon
#33. The Pirate Queen did not seem amused. I hope you intend to bring that poor girl more happiness than it appears you have already brought her!" "Have no fear of that, milord. Following my business with you, and my fleet, I'll have Colin take me to her island so I can claim her and rectify the situation immediately." He raised his glass and gave a sly grin. "Her days of plundering the Spanish Main are, I can assure you, about to end." "I should damn well hope so," Nelson snapped. "Should the Admiralty in London learn of your antics, it'd be disastrous enough, but if you were to involve yourself with a pirate, they'd waste no time demanding your resignation regardless of how many laurels your career boasts." "All the more reason to put an end to Her Majesty's piratical pursuits, now. #Quote by Danelle Harmon
Boasts Synonym quotes by Anonymous
#34. Beowulf spake then, Boast-words uttered - the latest occasion: He boasts of his youthful prowess, and declares himself still fearless. "I braved in my youth-days battles unnumbered; Still am I willing the struggle to look for, Fame-deeds perform, folk-warden prudent, If the hateful despoiler forth from his cavern Seeketh me out! #Quote by Anonymous
Boasts Synonym quotes by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
#35. Sisterhood is a powerful metaphor; it ought not become a synonym for groupthink. #Quote by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
Boasts Synonym quotes by Guy LAROCHE
#36. Eccentricity is not the synonym for elegance. #Quote by Guy LAROCHE
Boasts Synonym quotes by Dan Brown
#37. Google' is not a synonym for 'research'. #Quote by Dan Brown
Boasts Synonym quotes by James Hold
#38. Evil is by nature fearful and superstitious; therefore it boasts. And thus boasting it succumbs, not to the power of good, but to its own inherent weakness. The premise of evil is a lie that must be compounded to be maintained, until it collapses of its own weight. Hence its downfall, though not immediate, is inevitable. This then is the true power of good: that good need exert so little to flourish, while evil must give all, and still fail. #Quote by James Hold
Boasts Synonym quotes by Gregory Schrempp
#39. Long a topic of interest for history and philosophy of science, the Copernican Revolution more recently has become a favorite symbol for popular science writers. This symbol is used in two main ways, both of which shade easily into the mythic. First, the Copernican Revolution is invoked to mark a point of grand transformation between anthropocentric and objective thinking. Second, many portrayals of the Copernican Revolution heroize its protagonist and ritualize his deed. The Copernican Revolution designates an alleged shift in worldview that took place in the past, but also a sort of personal microcosm of that event - a rite of passage that any mind aspiring to science must undergo. The term "myth" in some usages becomes a near-synonym for pre-Copernican thought - a definition that is maddeningly inadequate even though refreshingly concise. #Quote by Gregory Schrempp
Boasts Synonym quotes by Richard Dawkins
#40. A theist believes in a supernatural intelligence who, in addition to his main work of creating the universe in the first place, is still around to oversee and influence the subsequent fate of his initial creation. In many theistic belief systems, the deity is intimately involved in human affairs. He answers prayers; forgives or punishes sins; intervenes in the world by performing miracles; frets about good and bad deeds, and knows when we do them (or even think of doing them). A deist, too, believes in a supernatural intelligence, but one whose activities were confined to setting up the laws that govern the universe in the first place. The deist God never intervenes thereafter, and certainly has no specific interest in human affairs. Pantheists don't believe in a supernatural God at all, but use the word God as a non-supernatural synonym for Nature, or for the Universe, or for the lawfulness that governs its workings. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Boasts Synonym quotes by Melissa Jensen
#41. Frankie had used one (reverently) to wipe his eyes.This specimen was old and soft,monogrammed with a J in the corner. "Makes it interesting," he told me once, after finding a box monogrammed with M for fifty cents at a sidewalk sale. "Was it Max or Michael? Maybe Marco..."
"Here," he said now. "You have lipstick halfway down to your chin."
Humiliated, I scrubbed at my face.
Frankie held out his hand, palm up. "Okay,let's have it." I pulled the tube out of my pocket. "Not really my thing, madam, but since I've seen what happens when you don't use a mirror..." I'm sure it helped that he was holding my face, but he read it like a pro. "You had a mirror."
"I did.I'm hopeless."
"Maybe.Open." He squinted as he filled in my upper lip. "I don't like this."
"The color? I knew it was too pink-"
"Quiet.You'll smear it.The color is fine. Better for Sienna, I'm sure..." He surveyed his handiwork. "I don't like that you're doing this for him."
"Don't start. I told you how nice he was."
"In excruciating detail."
Given, the post-Bainbridge family dinner e-mail to Frankie and Sadie had been long. But excrutiating stung, especially from the boy who'd used every possible synonym for hot in describing his Friday-night bookstore acquisition. No name, just detailed hotness and the play-by-play of their flirtation over the fantasy section. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Boasts Synonym quotes by Benjamin Graham
#42. At heart, "uncertainty" and "investing" are synonyms. #Quote by Benjamin Graham
Boasts Synonym quotes by A.D. Aliwat
#43. Really, the definition of what makes us "human" confuses me. Showing "humanity" is like this synonym for "treating others kindly" or "like you want to be treated" or whatever, when that isn't really human at all. Whoever came up with that definition is a real scammer, and a real genius. More than anything else, humans have been terrible to each other throughout history, and this is still the way it works today and will continue to work. It's how we're wired. I have "human understanding"; that's it. #Quote by A.D. Aliwat
Boasts Synonym quotes by Paul Valery
#44. I am not averse to generalizing the notion of "modern" to designate a certain way of life, rather than making it purely a synonym of 'contemporary'. There are moments and places in history to which 'we moderns' could return without too greatly disturbing the harmony of those times, without seeming objects infinitely curious and conspicuous ... creatures shocking, dissonant, and unassailable. #Quote by Paul Valery
Boasts Synonym quotes by David Bowie
#45. Since the departure of good old-fashioned entertainers the re-emergence of somebody who wants to be an entertainer has unfortunately become a synonym for camp. I don't think I'm camper than any other person who felt at home on stage, and felt more at home on stage than he did offstage. #Quote by David Bowie
Boasts Synonym quotes by John Maiorana (oohGiovanni)
#46. Talk is cheap for the man who boasts his worth, you don't have to take my word to know who i am. #Quote by John Maiorana (oohGiovanni)
Boasts Synonym quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#47. Science boasts of the distance of its stars; of the terrific remoteness of the things of which it has to speak. But poetry and religion always insist upon the proximity, the almost menacing closeness of the things with which they are concerned. Always the Kingdom of Heaven is "At Hand." #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Boasts Synonym quotes by Ayn Rand
#48. The respectable family that supports worthless relatives or covers up their crimes in order to "protect the family name"(as if the moral stature of one man could be damaged by the actions of another)
-the bum who boasts that his great-grandfather was an empire-builder, or the small-town spinster who boasts that her maternal great-uncle was a state senator and her third cousin gave a concert at carnegie hall (as if the achievement of one man could rub off on the mediocrity of another)
-the parents who search geneological trees in order to evaluate their prospective son-in-law.
-the celebrity who starts his autobiography with a detailed account of his family history
-All these are samples of racism. #Quote by Ayn Rand
