Clever quotes by Antony Beevor
#1. The great help of being in the Army is to understand why are the armies clever in what they describe as emotional intelligence, making soldiers come to terms with the death of comrades by certain rituals. #Quote by Antony Beevor
Clever quotes by Steven Brust
#2. A stupid person can make only certain, limited types of errors; the mistakes open to a clever fellow are far broader. But to the one who knows how smart he is compared to everyone else, the possibilities for true idiocy are boundless. #Quote by Steven Brust
Clever quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#3. The shell game that we play ... is technically called 'renormalization'. But no matter how clever the word, it is still what I would call a dippy process! Having to resort to such hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self-consistent. It's surprising that the theory still hasn't been proved self-consistent one way or the other by now; I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Clever quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#4. I am so stupid that I cannot understand philosophy; the antithesis of this is that philosophy is so clever that it cannot comprehend my stupidity. These antitheses are mediated in a higher unity; in our common stupidity. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Clever quotes by Brett Dennen
#5. What I strive to do with songwriting is be really honest, authentic and try to be open and share that with people. I choose that over trying to be clever, poetic, or lyrical. #Quote by Brett Dennen
Clever quotes by Deyth Banger
#6. People should train their brain by watching films, by listening music, by playing games, by reading quotes. If people do this, I can said from this a big percent from here you can become clever. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Clever quotes by John Le Carre
#7. Some fieldmen, and particularly the clever ones, take a perverse pride in not knowing the whole picture. Their art consists in the deft handling of loose ends, and stops there stubbornly. #Quote by John Le Carre
Clever quotes by Christopher Golden
#8. Chaos is an ocean," Alexandra Nueva said. "It ebbs and flows and sometimes it rises to destroy those who build their lives beside it. But if you're clever and determined, you just might find a way to hold back the tide. #Quote by Christopher Golden
Clever quotes by William Boyd
#9. Any fool can "obey" an order,' Hamo said, darkly. 'The clever thing is to interpret it. #Quote by William Boyd
Clever quotes by T.L. Shreffler
#10. So you don't like fish?"
"Not especially," he replied in an equally soft voice. Then a wicked glint lit his eyes. "Unless it has long, slimy tentacles and suckers, with tiny black eyes that have been boiled in soup..."
"Oh, hush!" Sora laughed. "Are you describing yourself? I think I've seen a few tentacles under that cloak..."
The assassin grimaced. "You're very clever."
"I learned it from you," she grinned.
"We'll have to put a stop to that."
Sora's grin widened. "You could always throw me to the sea."
Crash laughed. "That wouldn't work. As I recall, you're a very good swimmer." The compliment was unexpected. He had adopted a deep tone that Sora had never heard before. It sent shivers across her skin and she shifted in her seat, strangely excited.
"I could teach you," she said.
"Why don't we have our first lesson in the bath? #Quote by T.L. Shreffler
Clever quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#11. The dilemma is this. In the modern world knowledge has been growing so fast and so enormously, in almost every field, that the probabilities are immensely against anybody, no matter how innately clever, being able to make a contribution in any one field unless he devotes all his time to it for years. If he tries to be the Rounded Universal Man, like Leonardo da Vinci, or to take all knowledge for his province, like Francis Bacon, he is most likely to become a mere dilettante and dabbler. But if he becomes too specialized, he is apt to become narrow and lopsided, ignorant on every subject but his own, and perhaps dull and sterile even on that because he lacks perspective and vision and has missed the cross-fertilization of ideas that can come from knowing something of other subjects. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Clever quotes by Glenn Haybittle
#12. He likes to think of himself as someone who can give quick clever answers to awkward questions. It is an important part of his self-esteem. #Quote by Glenn Haybittle
Clever quotes by Gail Jones
#13. The men she had known at university, with their practised uncouthness, their masculine argumentation, the way they assumed ownership of the women they lassoed into their grasp. She had endured them, her series of clever boyfriends, who expected her to pick up their towels and edit their poor prose. They had all exemplified the modish paranoias of their age. They were conceited over-achievers and smugly privileged. It had been a relief to fly away, #Quote by Gail Jones
Clever quotes by Laozi
#14. The ancient Masters didn't try to educate the people, but kindly taught them to not-know. When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide. When they know that they don't know, people can find their own way. If you want to learn how to govern, avoid being clever or rich. The simplest pattern is the clearest. Content with an ordinary life, you can show all people the way back to their own true nature. #Quote by Laozi
Clever quotes by Honore De Balzac
#15. Alas! Where love is concerned, self-interested deception is superior to the truth itself, which is why so many men pay so high a price to clever deceivers. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Clever quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#16. You think you're a very clever fellow, don't you?" Saldur challenged.
"No, Your Grace," Merrick replied. "Clever is the man who makes a fortune selling dried-up cows, explaining how it saves the farmers the trouble of getting up every morning to milk them. I'm not clever - I'm a genius. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Clever quotes by Miles Franklin
#17. It came home to me as a great blow that it was only men who could take the world by its ears and conquer their fate, while women, metaphorically speaking, were forced to sit with tied hands and patiently suffer as the waves of fate tossed them hither and thither, battering and bruising without mercy. Familiarity made me used to this yoke; I recovered from the disappointment of being a girl, and was reconciled to that part of my fate. In fact, I found that being a girl was quite pleasant, until a hideous truth dawned upon me--I was ugly! ... In conjunction with this brand of hell I developed a reputation of cleverness. Worse and worse! Girls! girls! Those of you who have hearts, and therefore a wish for happiness, homes, and husbands by and by, never develop a reputation of being clever. It will put you out of the matrimonial running as effectually as though it had been circulated that you had leprosy. So, if you feel that you are afflicted with more than ordinary intelligence, and especially if you are plain with it, hide your brains, cramp your mind, study to appear unintellectual--it is your only chance. Provided a woman is beautiful, allowance will be made for all her shortcomings. She can be unchaste, vapid, untruthful, flippant, heartless, and even clever; so long as she is fair to see, men will stand by her, and as men in this world are "the dog on top," they are the power to truckle to. A plain woman will have nothing forgiven her. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Clever quotes by Jane Goodall
#18. Here we are, the most clever species ever to have lived. So how is it we can destroy the only planet we have? #Quote by Jane Goodall
Clever quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#19. The hardest tumble a man can make is to fall over his own bluff. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Clever quotes by Francis Shenstone
#20. Clever people learn from their mistakes; wise people study other people's errors first. #Quote by Francis Shenstone
Clever quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#21. Every year when I stands first in my class, Ma gives me the advice: Daughter, she say, never be gamandi. What you have, given to you by God. You just a basket into which God puts the flowers. Flowers not belong to you. They belongs to God. Same way, your clever belong to God. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Clever quotes by Colum McCann
#22. The short sharp shock of three thousand mother two hundred mothers. The ones who picked through the supermarket debris for pieces of their dead husbands. The ones who still laundered their gone son's bed sheets by hand. The ones who kept an extra teacup at the end of the table, in case of miracles. The elegant ones, the angry ones, the clever ones, the ones in hairnets, the ones exhausted by all the dying. They carried their sorrow - not with photos under their arms, or with public wailing, or by beating their chests, but with a weariness around the eyes. Mothers and daughters and children and grandmothers, too. They never fought the wars, but they suffered them, blood and bone. #Quote by Colum McCann
Clever quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#23. Life, it turns out, is infinitely more clever and adaptable than anyone had ever supposed. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Clever quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#24. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Clever quotes by Jane Austen
#25. My idea of good company, Mr Elliot, is the company of clever, well-informed people, who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company."
"You are mistaken," said he gently, "that is not good company; that is the best. Good company requires only birth, education, and manners ( ... ) #Quote by Jane Austen
Clever quotes by Jessica Cluess
#26. It's easy to poke fun at the world and think yourself clever, but it's much harder to stand silent and endure. #Quote by Jessica Cluess
Clever quotes by T.H. White
#27. The nice thing about the queen of Flanders' daughter, had been that she did not laugh at him. A lot of people laughed at you when you went after the Questing Beast - and never caught it - but Piggy never laughed. She seemed to understand at once how interesting it was, and made several sensible suggestions about the way to trap it. Naturally, one did not pretend to be clever or anything, but it was nice not to be laughed at. One was doing one's best. #Quote by T.H. White
Clever quotes by Aidan Chambers
#28. Ah, clever clogs, but it will have happened in one of my alternative lives. You know
the lives hot-shot scientists tell us we are living at the same time as this one we know about. Which being so, how do you know that what happens in one of your alternative lives doesn't sometimes leak through into your consciousness in this life, and make you sad that you aren't living that particular alternative life instead of this one? Don't you sometimes feel depressed for no reason you can think of? I do. And maybe that's why. We've had a leak from an alternative life and want that life now. Like wanting an ice cream when you were little, which you knew was in the freezer, but your mom wouldn't let you have it. #Quote by Aidan Chambers
Clever quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#29. Whenever a woman smiled his way, she'd already begun dividing her life into trimesters. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Clever quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#30. But he was coming. He would be here soon, all sweet and brave and shattered and kind. He would come carrying and clever-fingered and oh so unaware of oh so many things. He was rough against the world, but even so ... #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Clever quotes by John Lubbock
#31. Many of the greatest men have owed their success to industry rather than to cleverness. #Quote by John Lubbock
Clever quotes by Rosa Parks
#32. You spend your whole lifetime in your occupation, actually making life clever, easy and convenient for white people. But when you have to get transportation home, you are denied an equal accommodation. Our existence was for the white man's comfort and well-being; we had to accept being deprived of just being human. #Quote by Rosa Parks
Clever quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#33. I think that's what people do with the holidays. They wrap it up all neatly with a turkey and clever gifts and lots of eggnog and laugh and laugh, but at the end of the day there are always people missing from the table. And you have to either sit with those empty chairs and laugh, or you can choose not to come to the table at all. I would rather come to the table. #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Clever quotes by Kerry Ellis
#34. I love Lady Gaga! I think she's incredible. I think she's so clever - you know, about what she wears and when she does it. Plus, her music is just incredible. You can really compare her to Madonna now - she's really amazing. #Quote by Kerry Ellis
Clever quotes by Sue Townsend
#35. I have a problem. I am an intellectual, but at the same time I am not very clever. #Quote by Sue Townsend
Clever quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#36. Why,' said he, 'does not the emperor, who has devised so many clever and efficient modes of improving the art of war, organize a regiment of lawyers, judges and legal practitioners, sending them in the hottest fire the enemy could maintain, and using them to save better men? #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Clever quotes by Alexander Ostrovsky
#37. To pronounce something clever and honest is not such a big deal, lots of them have been said and written. For a statement of truth to be effective and for it to make people wiser, it has to be filtered through the soul of a highest quality, the soul of an artist. #Quote by Alexander Ostrovsky
Clever quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#38. They went Indian file. First came the scouts, clever, graceful, quiet. They had rifles. Next came the antitank gunner, clumsy and dense, warning Germans away with a Colt .45 automatic in one hand and a trench knife in the other.
Last came Billy Pilgrim, empty-handed, bleakly ready for death. Billy was preposterous - six feet and three inches tall, with a chest and shoulders like a box of kitchen matches. He had no helmet, no overcoat, no weapon, and no boots. On his feet were cheap, low-cut civilian shoes which he had bought for his father's funeral. Billy had lost a heel, which made him bob up-and-down, up-and-down. The involuntary dancing, up-and-down, up-and-down, made his hip joints sore. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Clever quotes by Winston Churchill
#39. Bessie Braddock: "Winston, you're drunk. Churchill: "Bessie, you're ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Clever quotes by Chico Kidd
#40. Still men be clever and in an hundred centuries or more, perchance will have found a way to journey thither; when that they have discovered and understood all things on the earth. What will a man be like in the xxvii century, or even the xx? Very like unto us, I do expect; I do not think that man's nature shall change; nor do I anticipate that he will be the wiser than we, for all his learning, for 'tis a part of that nature which is ours that we do not heed the lessons of history: neither our own, nor the world's. #Quote by Chico Kidd
Clever quotes by J.D. Salinger
#41. That cat was a spy. You had to take a pot shot at it. It was a very clever German midget dressed up in a cheap fur coat. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Clever quotes by E.L. James
#42. I really like clever men who challenge you. #Quote by E.L. James
Clever quotes by J. Aleksandr Wootton
#43. Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by being clever (always), honest (as a rule, but with common-sense exceptions), courteous (especially to the elderly, no matter their apparent social station), and kind (to anyone in obvious need), even a child can succeed where those who seem more qualified have failed.
And this precisely what children most need to hear.
To let them go on believing that the world is safe, that they will be provided for and achieve worthwhile things even if they remain stupid, shirk integrity, despise courtesy, and act only from self-interest, that they ought to rely on those stronger, smarter, and more able to solve their problems, would be the gravest disservice: to them, and to society as a whole.
-On the Supposed Unsuitability of Fairytales for Children #Quote by J. Aleksandr Wootton
Clever quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
#44. The quarrel is a very pretty quarrel as it stands - we should only spoil it by trying to explain it. #Quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Clever quotes by Winston Churchill
#45. Any clever person can make plans for winning a war if he has no responsibility for carrying them out. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Clever quotes by Robert Jordan
#46. I'm not a clever man, but I'm willing to listen to people who are, and I think you are. Just don't try poking me in the direction you want me to go. I don't like that Master Balwer. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Clever quotes by Scott Lynch
#47. Angry now? My, yes, you would be… angry that you fucked up. Angry that you're not as clever as you think. Angry that the gods gave lots of other people the same sort of brain they gave Locke Lamora. Quite the pisser, isn't it?...

'He doesn't rule his graveyard by logic, boy; he rules it by fear. Fear of him keeps the older sprats in line. Fear of them keeps little shits like you in line. Anything that undermines that fear is a threat to his position. Enter Locke Lamora waving the idiot flag and thinking himself so much cleverer than the rest of the world!'

'I really… I don't… think I'm cleverer than the rest of the world.'

'You did until three minutes ago. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Clever quotes by Guy Deutscher
#48. Gladstone's was neither the first nor the last of great minds to be led astray by religious fervor, but in the case of his Studies on Homer, his convictions took the particular unfortunate turn of trying to marry Homer's pagan pantheon with the Christian creed. ... The Times was not amused: "Perfectly honest in his intentions, he takes up a theory, and no matter how ridiculous it is in reality, he can make it appear respectable in argument. Too clever by half! #Quote by Guy Deutscher
Clever quotes by Malcolm McDowell
#49. The most dangerous people are always clever, compelling, and charismatic. #Quote by Malcolm McDowell
Clever quotes by Philip Kerr
#50. Sometimes a stupid man is only a couple of good guesses away from looking clever. #Quote by Philip Kerr
Clever quotes by Ian McDonald
#51. Najia can feel yts subdermal activators against her forearm. Not man not woman not both not neither. Nute. Another way of being human, speaking a phsyical language she does not understand. More alien to her than any man, any father, yet this body next to hers is loyal, tough, funny courageous, clever, kind, sensual, vulnerable. Sweet. Sexy. All you could wish in a friend of the soul. Or a lover. #Quote by Ian McDonald
Clever quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#52. The first humans were especially ungrateful. After the birth of the sun and the moon, they asked for stars. After the crops rose from the ground, they asked for beasts to fill the fields. After some time, the god of the ground, weary of their demands, thought it best to destroy them and begin again with humbler beings. So it goes that the god of the sky thought the first humans too clever to waste, and he agreed to keep them in the sky with the promise that they would never again interfere with the ground.
The History of Internment, Chapter 1 #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Clever quotes by Mark Twain
#53. It is full of interest, it has noble poetry in it and some clever fables and some blood drenched history, some good morals and a wealth of obscenity and upwards of a thousand lies.
(Re The Bible) #Quote by Mark Twain
Clever quotes by Matt Taibbi
#54. The new America, instead, is fast becoming a vast ghetto in which all of us, conservatives and progressives, are being bled dry by a relatively tiny oligarchy of extremely clever financial criminals and their castrato henchmen in government, whose job is to be good actors on TV and put on a good show. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Clever quotes by E.K. Johnston
#55. If you are clever and you are good, the monster will not have you.
You should not believe everything you hear.
Good men fall to monsters everyday. Clever men are tricked by their own pride or by pretty words. #Quote by E.K. Johnston
Clever quotes by Melina Marchetta
#56. I won't push you for it anymore, okay. We'll stick to clever conversation.
A bit of this and that won't hurt.
Yeah, it won't hurt you. It'll drive me bloody crazy. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Clever quotes by John Gardner
#57. Don't be fooled by clever hands, sir" the Sunlight Man said. He'd be lying with the back of his head on his hands, as he always lay. "Entertainment's all very well, but the world is serious. It's exceedingly amusing, when you think about it: nothing in life is as startling or shocking or mysterious as a good magician's trick. That's what makes stagecraft deadly. Listen closely, friend. You see great marvels performed on the stage - the lady sawed in half, the fat man supported by empty air, the Hindu vanishing with the folding of a cloth - and the subtlest of poisons drifts into your brain: you think the earth dead because the sky is full of spirits, you think the hall drab because the stage is adazzle with dimestore gilt. So King Lear rages, and the audience grows meek, and tomorrow, in the gray of old groceries, the housewife will weep for Cordelia and despair for herself. They weren't fools, those old sages who called all art the Devil's work. It eats the soul. #Quote by John Gardner
Clever quotes by Karl Kraus
#58. The secret of the demagogue is to make himself as stupid as his audience so they believe they are clever as he. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Clever quotes by Carl Honore
#59. Then there is the curse of multi-tasking. Doing two things at once seems so clever, so efficient, so modern. And yet what it often means is doing two things not very well. Like many people, I read the paper while watching TV - and find that I get less out of both. #Quote by Carl Honore
Clever quotes by Erik Naggum
#60. Very clever implementation techniques are required to implement this insanity correctly and usefully, not to mention that code written with this feature used and abused east and west is exceptionally exciting to debug. #Quote by Erik Naggum
Clever quotes by Ogden Nash
#61. Too clever is dumb. #Quote by Ogden Nash
Clever quotes by Lyndon LaRouche
#62. The ruling British elite are like animals
not only in their morality, but in their outlook on knowledge. They are clever animals, who are masters of the wicked nature of their own species, and recognize ferally the distinctions of the hated human species. Nonetheless, obsessively dedicated to being such animals, they can not [sic] assimilate those qualities unique to true human beings. #Quote by Lyndon LaRouche
Clever quotes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
#63. P44- in tarzans clever little mind many thoughts revolved and back of these was his divine power of reason. #Quote by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Clever quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#64. Its humble beginnings are that of a parasite, growing in something that is alive, draining its host of beauty. It's clever - the plight of the splinter. A sort of rags to riches story. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Clever quotes by Osho
#65. No relationship can truly grow if you go on holding back. If you remain clever and go on safeguarding and protecting yourself, only personalities meet, and the essential centers remain alone. Then only your mask is related, not you. Whenever such a thing happens, there are four persons in the relationship, not two. Two false persons go on meeting, and the two real persons remain worlds apart. #Quote by Osho
Clever quotes by Walt Disney Company
#66. Those who are clever, who have a brain, never understand anything. #Quote by Walt Disney Company
Clever quotes by Matt Haig
#67. As well as religion, human history is full of depressing things like colonisation, disease, racism, sexism, homophobia, class snobbery, environmental destruction, slavery, totalitarianism, military dictatorships, inventions of things which they have no idea how to handle (the atomic bomb, the Internet, the semi-colon), the victimisation of clever people, the worshipping of idiotic people, boredom, despair, periodic collapses, and catastrophes within the psychic landscape. #Quote by Matt Haig
Clever quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#68. There's nothing good about being certain about things. And I don't think there's any real talent in using language in a manipulative way, with phrases like "tax relief" or "Social Security reform." It's politically clever, but it's also completely disingenuous, and it's not something to aspire to. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Clever quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#69. Ridicule is also a weapon against forces of evil. Really clever, intelligent ridicule. #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Clever quotes by Winston Churchill
#70. By being so long in the lowest form [at Harrow] I gained an immense advantage over the cleverer boys ... I got into my bones the essential structure of the ordinary British sentence - which is a noble thing. Naturally I am biased in favor of boys learning English; I would make them all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honor, and Greek as a treat. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Clever quotes by Jay Nordlinger
#71. You Cannot Live as I Have Lived and Not End Up Like This: The Thoroughly Disgraceful Life & Times of Willie Donaldson. #Quote by Jay Nordlinger
Clever quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#72. Be clever and do not build walls, because in the future they will bring only shame to you! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Clever quotes by Sarah Waters
#73. Oh, Frances, for somebody so clever you can be awfully dull sometimes. Don't you know the sort of mistake I mean? I was going to have a #Quote by Sarah Waters
Clever quotes by Terry Pratchett
#74. This man was so absent-mindedly clever that he could paint pictures that didn't just follow you around the room but went home with you and did the washing-up. #Quote by Terry Pratchett

Clever quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#76. Sister, they send you out for one and you bring back two ... and a half. Such a clever girl. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Clever quotes by Gelila Bekele
#77. Modeling is not something you excel because you are clever but is based on physical appearance, but then you have to be a businesswoman, like, to keep your longevity. #Quote by Gelila Bekele
Clever quotes by Robert Frost
#78. When clever people ask me where
I get a poem, I despair. #Quote by Robert Frost
Clever quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#79. There are but very few men clever enough to know all the mischief they do. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Clever quotes by Akio Morita
#80. I have always believed that a
trademark is the life of an enterprise
and that it must be protected boldly. A
trademark and a company name are
not just clever gimmicks-they carry
responsibility and guarantee the
quality of the product. If someone tries
to get a free ride on the reputation and
the ability of another who has worked
to build up public trust, it is nothing
short of thievery. We were not flattered
by this theft of our name. #Quote by Akio Morita
Clever quotes by Jane Austen
#81. She was sensible and clever, but eager in everything; her sorrows, her joys, could have no moderation. #Quote by Jane Austen
Clever quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#82. That's the problem with college kids. I blame Hollywood for skewing their perspective. Life is just a big romantic comedy to them, and if you meet cute, happily-ever-after is a foregone conclusion. So there we were, the pretty blond girl milking her very slight congenital limp in order to seem damaged and more interesting, and the nervous boy with the ridiculous hair trying so hard to be clever, the two of us hypnotized by the syncopated rhythms of our furiously beating hearts and throbbing loins. That stupid, desperate, horny kid I was, standing obliviously on the fault line of embryonic love, when really, what he should have been doing was running for his life. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Clever quotes by Thomas Huxley
#83. No mistake is so commonly made by clever people as that of assuming a cause to be bad because the arguments of its supporters are, to a great extent, nonsensical #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Clever quotes by Catherine Austin Fitts
#84. With QE3, we are essentially being bought out with our own money ... and unemployment is being used to facilitate this process in a very clever manner. Monetary inflation is currently being offset by labor deflation. The way you avoid collapse is by printing money and stealing assets. The way you avoid inflation is with labor deflation. #Quote by Catherine Austin Fitts
Clever quotes by Tony DiTerlizzi
#85. Clever is as clever does. #Quote by Tony DiTerlizzi
Clever quotes by Brandi Glanville
#86. Today's "housewife" is a sassy, clever, opinionated woman who faces challenges head-on and never shies from telling it like it is
all the while hoping to create a happy "home life," regardless of what kind of home she has and who lives there. #Quote by Brandi Glanville
Clever quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#87. Meanwhile, we'd been kicked out of school at fifteen and had worked in factories and slaughtered animals for a living, but then we'd made something of ourselves, even though the whole system was against us. So how upset could we be when clever people said we were no good? #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Clever quotes by J.K. Rowling
#88. Wingardium Leviosa!" he shouted, waving his long arms like a windmill.
"You're saying it wrong," Harry heard Hermione snap. "It's Wing-gar-dium Levi-o-sa, make the 'gar' nice and long."
"You do it, then, if you're so clever," Ron snarled. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Clever quotes by David Liss
#89. Seduction is an absolute pleasure to read
clever, suspenseful, exciting, mysterious, learned, and engrossing. Some of the best historical fiction I've read in quite some time and just plain reading fun. M.J. Rose is at the top of her game, and that is saying something. #Quote by David Liss
Clever quotes by Kimberly Derting
#90. You know she made me a list, don't you?"
"What do you mean?"
"A list. Chelsea made me a list of questions to ask Mike."
Violet laughed, pulling herself up. It was too ridiculous to believe. But it was Chelsea, so of course it was true.
"What did you do with it? You didn't give it to him, did you?" Violet asked, her eyes wide with shock.
Jay sat up too and grinned, and Violet was sure that he had. And then he shook his head. "Nah. I told her if she really wanted the answers, she'd have to give it to him herself."
Violet relaxed back into the couch. "Did she?"
Jay shrugged. "I dunno. You never know with Chelsea." He leaned forward, watching Violet closely as he ran his thumb down the side of her cheek. "Anyway," he said, switching the subject, "I get off work at six tomorrow; maybe we can hook up after that." He moved closer, grinning. "And you can tell me how much you missed me."
He kissed her, at first quickly. Then the kiss deepened, and she heard him groan. This time, when he pulled back, there was indecision in his eyes.
Violet wanted to say something sarcastic and sharp-witted to lighten the mood, but with Jay staring at her like that, any hope of finding a clever response was lost. She could feel herself disappearing into the depths of that uncertain look. #Quote by Kimberly Derting
Clever quotes by Alphonse Daudet
#91. The clever way death cuts us down, but makes it look like just a thinning-out. Generations never fall with one blow - that would be too sad and too obvious. Death prefers to do it piecemeal. The meadow is attacked from several sides at the same time. One of us goes one day; another some time afterwards; you have to stand back and look around you to take in what's missing, to grasp the vast slaughter of your generation ... #Quote by Alphonse Daudet
Clever quotes by Jake Barton
#92. It's not very hard to be clever. It's far harder to be simple, obvious, and meaningful. #Quote by Jake Barton
Clever quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#93. In the world of journalism, the personal Web site ("blog") was hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become something quite different. Far from replacing newspapers and magazines, the best blogs-and the best are very clever- have become guides to them, pointing to unusual sources and commenting on familiar ones. They have become mediators for the informed public. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Clever quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#94. He announces that lately he keeps losing things. "Like your wife and child," I want to say, but don´t. At fourty, I´ve learned not to say everything clever, not to score every point. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Clever quotes by George R R Martin
#95. Hodor twice as big, twice as strong, and half as clever. #Quote by George R R Martin

Clever quotes by Sun Tzu
#97. What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Clever quotes by Saad Ireland
#98. Clever politeness can throw people off. Be tactful. #Quote by Saad Ireland
Clever quotes by Lalla Ward
#99. I think Douglas was a real one-off. He was so clever and so intelligent and so well read in real science that he could make science fiction work as well as it did. And just such fun to have around, he was just such a lovely man. #Quote by Lalla Ward
Clever quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#100. Some thought he was quite wicked, but in truth, he was no more or less than any other crow: enamored of bright new things, and too clever to get them by the usual path. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Clever quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#101. I didn't like the way I looked, the way I dressed and moved, what I achieved and what I felt I was worth. But there was so much energy in me, such belief that one day I'd be handsome and clever and superior and admired, such anticipation when I met new people and new situations. Is that what makes me sad? The eagerness and belief that filled me then and exacted a pledge from life that life could never fulfill? Sometimes I see the same eagerness and belief in the faces of children and teenagers and the sight brings back the same sadness I feel in remembering myself. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Clever quotes by Ellen Connor
#102. Tru only matched his grin and walked on. Pen caught up with him, tugging on his arm. "What is it?"
"I took a walk yesterday when you were working."
"A walk."
"Had you shifted?"
"Yes, I had."
Pen caught his humor, although she couldn't understand its origins.
"I may have used their freshwater reserves as a latrine. And then encouraged the other skinwalkers to do the same."
She giggled like a little girl being told a dirty joke.
"That's remarkably crude."
"I like to think of it as clever and resourceful."
"That, too. #Quote by Ellen Connor
Clever quotes by Derek Landy
#103. Please don't arrest me."
"Listen to me, I'm not going to arrest you, ok? I'm not a cop."
"Are you sure?"
"Am I sure I'm not a cop? yes, I'm sure."
"You could be undercover. #Quote by Derek Landy
Clever quotes by Ines De La Fressange
#104. Buying a matching blouse and skirt from the same store is a crime. A clever mix of chic and cheap hits the jackpot. Know how to mix styles and labels. #Quote by Ines De La Fressange
Clever quotes by Judith McNaught
#105. Is there a bird among them, dear boy?" Charity asked innocently, peering not at the things on the desk, but at his face, noting the muscle beginning to twitch at Ian's tense jaw.
"Then they must be in the schoolroom! Of course," she said cheerfully, "that's it. How like me, Hortense would say, to have made such a silly mistake."
Ian dragged his eyes from the proof that his grandfather had been keeping track of him almost from the day of his birth-certainly from the day when he was able to leave the cottage on his own two legs-to her face and said mockingly, "Hortense isn't very perceptive. I would say you are as wily as a fox."
She gave him a little knowing smile and pressed her finger to her lips. "Don't tell her, will you? She does so enjoy thinking she is the clever one."
"How did he manage to have these drawn?" Ian asked, stopping her as she turned away.
"A woman in the village near your home drew many of them. Later he hired an artist when he knew you were going to be somewhere at a specific time. I'll just leave you here where it's nice and quiet." She was leaving him, Ian knew, to look through the items on the desk. For a long moment he hesitated, and then he slowly sat down in the chair, looking over the confidential reports on himself. They were all written by one Mr. Edgard Norwich, and as Ian began scanning the thick stack of pages, his anger at his grandfather for this outrageous invasion of his privacy slowly became amusement. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Clever quotes by Mark Twain
#106. Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it? #Quote by Mark Twain
Clever quotes by Mark Haddon
#107. No one wants to know how clever you are. They don't want an insight into your mind, thrilling as it might be. They want an insight into their own. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Clever quotes by Kristen Ashley
#108. And he has to be handsome, unbelievably handsome, impossibly handsome with a strong, square jaw and powerful cheekbones and tanned skin and beautiful eyes with lush, thick lashes. He has to be clever and very wealthy but hard-working. He has to be virile, fierce, ruthless and rugged. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Clever quotes by Jarod Kintz
#109. A brick and a blanket could be used as characters in a story full of clever dialogue, such as:

Brick: I checked everywhere, and it's not where I last left it. Did you touch my penis sandwich?

Blanket: What? Eww no, why would I touch your penis sandwich?

Brick: Well, would it make you more comfortable if I put on some condiments and rolled on a condom?

Blanket: Dude, or lady, whatever you are. I'm not gay - or straight. I'm not even bisexual. I'm a blanket, and I'm asexual. I'm also not hungry now. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Clever quotes by Confucius
#110. Clever talk, ingratiating looks, fawning reverence: Tso-ch'iu Ming found that shameful, and so do I. Friendly while harboring resentment: Tso-ch'iu Ming found that shameful, too, and so do I. #Quote by Confucius
Clever quotes by Judith Viorst
#111. Passionate investment leaves us vulnerable to loss. And sometimes, no matter how clever we are, we must lose. #Quote by Judith Viorst
Clever quotes by Indeewara Jayawardane
#112. You can be clumsy yet clever. You can be classy yet poor. It's not tearing a leaf off a calendar which will make you a better or a worse man but the attitude that you have from dusk till dawn every day. #Quote by Indeewara Jayawardane
Clever quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#113. Emotion will always win over coolness and cleverness. It's when a scene works emotionally and it's cool and clever, then it's great. That's what you want. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Clever quotes by James Cosmo
#114. I think HBO seems to have an extraordinary clever knack of catching the pulse of its audience. It really, really knows its audience. #Quote by James Cosmo
Clever quotes by Paris Hilton
#115. Never drink diet soda. It shows you have no nerve. Only drink real colas, caffeine-packed energy drinks, or vitamin water. Hate champagne because that's what everyone expects you to love. Energy drinks are the best party drinks. You never get tired, you never get a hangover, and you can make fun of all the loaded people who think they're clever but are really acting stupid. #Quote by Paris Hilton
Clever quotes by Neal Stephenson
#116. But what little I'd heard had left me amazed by how clever people were at finding ways to make each other crazy and miserable. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Clever quotes by Ian McKellen
#117. You put anyone in the outfit, and they look like Gandalf. Not that clever. #Quote by Ian McKellen
Clever quotes by Martin Luther
#118. People give ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon. Whoever wishes to appear clever must devise some new system, which of all systems is of course the very best. This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but the sacred scripture tells us that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, not the earth. #Quote by Martin Luther
Clever quotes by Paul Hoffman
#119. Even for the very clever it can be like breaking bones to stand back from something that's been in front of you all your life. #Quote by Paul Hoffman

#125. My husband is smart enough to notice me trying to control him like I'm his boss or his mother - instead of his lover - no matter how clever my wording. #Quote by Laura Doyle
Clever quotes by Steven Moffat
#126. The Doctor: Doctor Song, you've got that face on again.
River: What face?
The Doctor: The "He's hot when he's clever" face.
River: This is my normal face.
The Doctor: Yes it is.
River: Oh, shut up.
The Doctor: Not a chance. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Clever quotes by Bertrand Meyer
#127. Careful as they may be, developers of Eiffel libraries will always run into cases in which, after releasing a library class, they suddenly experience what in French is called esprit de l'escalier or wit of the staircase: a great thought which unfortunately is an afterthought, like a clever reply that would have stunned all the other dinner guests - if only you had thought of it before walking down the stairs after the party is over. #Quote by Bertrand Meyer
Clever quotes by Patricia Briggs
#128. She could smell the wrongness in the air and it made her wolf nervous. It felt like something was watching them, as if the wrongness had an intelligence - and it didn't help to remember that at least one of the people they were hunting could hide from their senses.
Anna fought the urge to turn around, to take Charles's hand or slide under his arm and let his presence drive away the wrongness. Once, she would have, but now she had the uneasy feeling that he might back away as he almost had when she sat on his lap in the boat, before Brother Wolf had taken over.
Maybe he was just tired of her. She had been telling everyone that there was something wrong with him...but Bran knew his son and thought the problem was her. Bran was smart and perceptive; she ought to have considered that he was right.
Charles was old. He'd seen and experienced so much - next to him she was just a child. His wolf had chosen her without consulting Charles at all. Maybe he'd have preferred someone who knew more. Someone beautiful and clever who...
"Anna?" said Charles. "What's wrong? Are you crying?" He moved in front of her and stopped, forcing her to stop walking, too.
She opened her mouth and his fingers touched her wet cheeks.
"Anna," he said, his body going still. "Call on your wolf."
"You should have someone stronger," she told him miserably. "Someone who could help you when you need it, instead of getting sent home because I can't endure what you have to #Quote by Patricia Briggs

#129. The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Clever quotes by Olga Trujillo
#130. I was shocked and terrified to hear Dr. Summer say I had what was formerly known as multiple personality disorder. Is that like Sybil? Am I like the woman in The Three Faces of Eve? My head began to spin. What do I have inside of me? Is there a crazy person in there? What am I? I felt like a freak. I was afraid to have anyone know. I have a mental illness. People make fun of people like me. Upon hearing my diagnosis, I stopped thinking of myself as smart, creative, or clever. Even though Dr. Summer had worked hard to help me understand that I had developed an amazingly adaptive survival technique, I no longer thought of it that way at all.

I was overwhelmed by fear and shame. The words multiple personality disorder echoed in my mind. I thought of all the ways people with multiple personalities were ridiculed and marginalized: They're locked away in mental institutions. They are really sick. I'm not going to be the subject of people's jokes. I am a lawyer. I work at the U.S. Department of Justice. The more I thought about it, the deeper my despair grew. #Quote by Olga Trujillo
Clever quotes by Hanshan
#131. Old and sick, more than one hundred years Face haggard, hair white, I'm happy to still live in the mountains A cloth covered phantom watching the years flow by Why envy people with clever ways of living? #Quote by Hanshan
Clever quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#132. There are those who seek me a lifetime but never we meet,
And those I kiss but who trample me beneath ungrateful feet.
At times I seem to favor the clever and the fair,
But I bless all those who are brave enough to dare.
By large, my ministrations are soft-handed and sweet,
But scorned, I become a difficult beast to defeat.
For though each of my strikes lands a powerful blow,
When I kill, I do it slow ... #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Clever quotes by Rohinton Mistry
#133. Multilate. Ha Ha Ha,' said Nusswan, avuncular and willing to pretend it was a clever joke. 'Its all relative. At the best of times, democracy is a see saw between complete chaos and tolerable confusion. You see, to make a democratic omelette you have to break a few democratic eggs. To fight fascism and other evil forces threatening our country, there is nothing wrong in taking strong measures. Especially when the foreign hand is always interfering to destabilize us. Did you know the CIA is trying to sabotage the Family Planning Programme? #Quote by Rohinton Mistry
Clever quotes by Sara Lindsey
#134. No, I'm not smart," he whispered against her ear, "but I was wise enough to fall in love with you and clever enough to convince you to marry me. I hope I'm not so stupid that I would ever let you go. #Quote by Sara Lindsey
Clever quotes by Eddie Marsan
#135. Mike Leigh taught me about making choices - as an actor, you choose between being honest and clever, and with Mike, it's always about being honest. I learned how to behave on a film set from Jim Broadbent. He was a great example of someone with a fantastic career who kept his feet on the ground. #Quote by Eddie Marsan
Clever quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#136. where data are sparse, competing ideas abound that are clever and wishful. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Clever quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#137. However a man who was honest and clever was always, ALWAYS more difficult to scam than someone who was both dishonest and clever.
Sincerity. It was so difficult , by definition, to fake. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Clever quotes by J.M. Barrie
#138. But where do you live mostly now?"
With the lost boys."
Who are they?"
They are the children who fall out of their perambulators when the nurse is looking the other way. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent far away to the Neverland to defray expanses. I'm captain."
What fun it must be!"
Yes," said cunning Peter, "but we are rather lonely. You see we have no female companionship."
Are none of the others girls?"
Oh no; girls, you know, are much too clever to fall out of their prams. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Clever quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#139. We now live in a world where counter-intuitive bullshitting is valorized, where the pose of argument is more important than the actual pursuit of truth, where clever answers take precedence over profound questions. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Clever quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#140. The silliest woman can manage a clever man; but it needs a very clever woman to manage a fool. #Quote by Rudyard Kipling

Clever quotes by Aussiescribbler
#142. Ook, though very clever, was the worst fighter in the tribe. That is how he ended up with Grot-Grot as his woman. Grot-Grot had a bald patch on the top of her head, she was missing an eye and she smelled like a dead skunk. She did have a good sense of humour though. #Quote by Aussiescribbler
Clever quotes by M.I.A.
#143. My dad grew up in a mud hut and studied by candlelight. He was 14 when he got a scholarship to Russia. He was super clever - the cleverest person. He landed in 5ft of snow, and was alone at 14, studying science and engineering. He didn't have a bed, and he slept on a table. #Quote by M.I.A.
Clever quotes by Voltaire
#144. Clever tyrants are never punished. #Quote by Voltaire
Clever quotes by Chris Manby
#145. There is never a right time to break someone's heart. And anyone with even a microgram of sensitivity in his or her body will agonise for an age over that timing. Only problem is there is always some reason not to make someone unhappy. The day a relationship end, if that relationship was at all important to the suckers involved, becomes as important an anniversary as a wedding day or birthday.
Obviously, the average person doesn't want to kick someone they once loved while that person is down.
It's not just hard times when someone is down that become obstacles to making your getaway. After times of bereavement, unemployment and general unhappiness, those events that should be happy ones also make some times off limits for the eager would- be dumper. Christmas, birthdays, Easter all impossible. A clever person with a sensitive lover that they sense is not quite as into them as he or she used to be, could starve off the inevitable for years by carefully spacing out this crucial dates. #Quote by Chris Manby
Clever quotes by Ilya Ilf
#146. So what was in this building before historical materialism?'
'Before what?'
'You know, back then, under the old regime?'
'Oh. Under the old regime my master lived here.'
'A bourgeois?'
'You're a bourgeois yourself! He wasn't a bourgeois. He was a marshal of the nobility.'
'So he was a proletarian, then?'
'You're a proletarian yourself! I told you loud and clear, a marshal.'
The conversation with the clever dvornik with a vague understanding of the class structure of society would have lasted god knows how long if the young man hadn't made a decisive move. #Quote by Ilya Ilf
Clever quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#147. To straddle the middle ground and win elections, we have to be in charge of the political agenda. This can only be done by not being beaten in the argument with our critics. They complain that I come down too hard on their arguments. But wrong ideas have to be challenged before they influence public opinion and make for problems. Those who try to be clever at the expense of the government should not complain if my replies are as sharp as their criticisms. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Clever quotes by T.J. Kirk
#148. A clever person can tell them the truth in a way that they want to hear. #Quote by T.J. Kirk
Clever quotes by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
#149. The number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can't tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.
... knitters just can't watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can't wait in line, knitters just can't sit waiting at the doctor's office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways. #Quote by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Clever quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#150. This was a clever man, as clever as Alfred, and he knew that weakness invited war. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Clever quotes by Courtney Milan
#151. Don't feel embarrassed," she said. "It's acceptable to lose the flow of conversation. Not everyone is clever enough to think of something to say immediately." Bradenton's lips thinned. "And you're a marquess," she added. "Maybe there are deficiencies in your understanding, but nobody will ever notice them so long as you make absolutely certain to introduce yourself as a marquess first. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Clever quotes by Tobias Wolff
#152. Say you've just read Faulkner's 'Barn Burning'. Like the son in the story, you've sensed the faults in your father's character. Thinking about them makes you uncomfortable, left alone you'd probably close the book and move on to other thoughts. But instead you are taken in hand by a tall, brooding man with a distinguished limp who involves you and a roomful of other boys in the consideration of what it means to be a son. The loyalty that is your duty and your worth and your problem. The goodness of loyalty and its difficulties and snares, how loyalty might also become betrayal - of the self and the world outside the circle of blood.

You've never had this conversation before, not with anyone. And even as its happening you understand that just as your father's troubles with the world - emotional frailty, self-doubt, incomplete honesty - will not lead him to set it on fire, your own loyalty will never be the stuff of tragedy. You will not turn bravely and painfully from your father, as the boy in the story does, but foresake him, without regret. And as you accept that separation, it seems to happen; your father's sad, fleshy face grows vague, and you blink it away and look up to where your teachers leans against his desk, one hand in a coat pocket, the other rubbing his bum knee as he listens desolately to the clever bore behind you saying something about bird imagery. #Quote by Tobias Wolff
Clever quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#153. West had always congratulated himself on being too clever to desire a woman he couldn't have. But Phoebe was as rare as a year with two blue moons. All through dinner, he'd marveled at how beautiful she was, the candlelight striking gleams from her hair and skin like rubies and pearls. She was clever, perceptive, quick as a whip. There had been hints of an absolutely lacerating wit, which he loved, but there were also touches of shyness and melancholy that went straight to his heart. She was a woman who badly needed to enjoy herself, and he wanted to indulge her in some thoroughly adult fun. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Clever quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#154. City is a madhouse! Don't stay there too much or you get mad! Go to the nature, to the Temple of the Clever! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Clever quotes by Richard Feynman
#155. Mr. Frankel, who started this program, began to suffer from the computer disease that anybody who works with computers now knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is you play with them. They are so wonderful. You have these switches - if it's an even number you do this, if it's an odd number you do that - and pretty soon you can do more and more elaborate things if you are clever enough, on one machine. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Clever quotes by Victoria Alexander
#156. An arrogant man knows his own worth, and if he is clever as well, knows yours. #Quote by Victoria Alexander
Clever quotes by Sangu Mandanna
#157. He can see what move I'm planning to make in chess and counters before I can do it. He always knows who the killer is in a detective story. I think he could make a career out of detecting, but he wants to write plays for theater. Maybe he could be a Shakespeare instead of a Sherlock. He could be anything. Anything he wants to be. #Quote by Sangu Mandanna
Clever quotes by Aeschylus

Clever quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#159. Which would you rather be if you had the choice
divinely beautiful or dazzlingly clever or angelically good? #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Clever quotes by A.S. Byatt
#160. [Loki] was beautiful, that was always affirmed, but his beauty was hard to fix or to see, for he was always glimmering, flickering, melting, mixing, he was the shape of a shapeless flame, he was the eddying thread of needle-shapes in the shapeless mass of the waterfall. He was the invisible wind that hurried the clouds in billows and ribbons...He was amused and dangerous, neither good nor evil. Thor was the classroom bully raised to the scale of growling thunder and whipping rain. Odin was Power, was in power. Ungraspable Loki flamed amazement and pleased himself.
The gods needed him because he was clever, because he solved problems. When they needed to break bargains they rashly made, mostly with giants, Loki showed them the way out. He was the god of endings. He provided resolutions for stories -- if he chose to. The endings he made often led to more problems.
There are no altars to Loki, no standing stones, he had no cult. In myths he was always the third of the trio, Odin, Hodur, Loki. In myths, the most important comes first of three. But in fairy tales, and folklore, where these three gods also play their parts, the rule of three is different; the important player is the third, the *youngest* son, Loki. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Clever quotes by Anthony Trollope
#161. The old family carriage and the two lady's maids were there,
as necessaries of life; but London society was not within her reach. It was therefore the case that they had not heard very much about Lizzie Eustace. But they had heard something. "I hope she won't be too fond of going out," said Amelia, the second girl.
"Or extravagant," said Georgina, the third.
"There was some story of her being terribly in debt when she married Sir Florian Eustace," said Diana, the fourth.
"Frederic will be sure to see to that," said Augusta, the eldest.
"She is very beautiful," said Lydia, the fifth.
"And clever," said Cecilia, the sixth.
"Beauty and cleverness won't make a good wife," said Amelia, who was the wise one of the family.
"Frederic will be sure to see that she doesn't go wrong," said Augusta who was not wise. #Quote by Anthony Trollope

Clever quotes by Bram Stoker
#167. You are clever man, friend John; you reason well, and your wit is bold; but you are too prejudiced. You do not let your eyes see nor your ears hear, and that which is outside your daily life is not of account to you. Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplate by men's eyes, because they know – or think they know – some things which other men have told them. Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explain not, then it says there is nothing to explain. But yet we see around us every day the growth of new beliefs, which think themselves new; and which are yet but the old, which pretend to be young – like the fine ladies at the opera. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Clever quotes by Aldous Huxley
#168. „Hitler", wrote Herman Rauschning in 1939, „ has a deep respect for the Catholic church and the Jesuit order, not because of their Christian doctrine, but because of the ´machinery they have elaborated and controlled, their hierarchical system, their extremely clever tactics, their knowledge of human nature and their wise use of human weaknesses in ruling over believers. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Clever quotes by Zhao Gangan
#169. , then why do you always forget that I love you very much? I love you very much, so even though it's indeed true that there are girls who are taller than you, slimmer than you, prettier than you, more clever, gentle and sensible than you in this world, but they are all none of my business. #Quote by Zhao Gangan
Clever quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#170. Hence, why Tudeski is only my pen name (stage name – made up name) and I don't use my real surname when I write anything any longer. Clever of me, right? No, not really, my real surname got fucked over by critics long before I actually found out an author could use a pretend name – I just believe it's Tudeski's turn to take some of this shit now! #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski

#173. People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other's personalities. Who wouldn't? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that's not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner's faults honestly and say, 'I can work around that. I can make something out of it.'? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it's always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Clever quotes by Manu Joseph
#174. Most of you will probably never really discover anything. You may not contribute anything to the great equations that describe the universe to the world. But you will have the good fortune of encountering people of exceptional intelligence. People who are much smarter than you. Never get in their way, never group together in disgruntled circles and play games. Respect talent, real talent. Worship it. Clever people will always be disliked. Don't exploit that to crawl your way to the top. By the laws of probability most of you are mediocre. Accept it. The tragedy of mediocrity is that even mediocre people shake their heads and mull over how "standards are falling". So don't mull. Just know when you've to get out of the way. Most of you will be sideshows, extras in the grand unfolding of truth. That's all right. Once you accept that and let the best brains do their jobs, you will have done your service to science and mankind. #Quote by Manu Joseph
Clever quotes by David Brin
#175. Again, how will we keep them loyal? What measures can ensure our machines stay true to us? Once artificial intelligence matches our own, won't they then design even better ai minds? Then better still, with accelerating pace? At worst, might they decide (as in many cheap dramas), to eliminate their irksome masters? At best, won't we suffer the shame of being nostalgically tolerated? Like senile grandparents or beloved childhood pets? Solutions? Asimov proposed Laws of Robotics embedded at the level of computer DNA, weaving devotion toward humanity into the very stuff all synthetic minds are built from, so deep it can never be pulled out. But what happens to well-meant laws? Don't clever lawyers construe them however they want? Authors like Asimov and Williamson foresaw supersmart mechanicals becoming all-dominant, despite deep programming to "serve man. #Quote by David Brin
Clever quotes by Peter McWilliams
#176. People who want to appear clever rely on memory. People who want to get things done make lists. #Quote by Peter McWilliams
Clever quotes by Nora Roberts
#177. Looking up, she watched the balloons dance at the tops of their strings. Hanging by a ribbon at the end was a little white card.
She wouldn't even open it, she told herself.She knew who they were from anyway. Who else? No,she wasn't going to open it.In fact,she was going to find a pin and pop every last balloon. What were they but a bunch of hot air? It was ridiculous.To prove a point, Shelby let the strings go so the balloons drifted up to the ceiling. If he thought he was going to win her over with silly presents and clever little notes...he was absolutely right, dammit.
Shelby jumped up, swearing when she missed the strings by inches.Hauling over a chair,she climbed into it and grabbed the card.

The yellow's for sunshine, the pink's for spring.Share them with me.

"You drive me crazy," she muttered, standing in the chair with the balloons in one hand and the card in the other. How did he know,how could he know just the sort of thing that would get to her? Strawberries and pigs and balloons-it was hopeless. Shelby stared up at them, wishing she didn't need to smile. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Clever quotes by Ricky Gervais
#178. Pol Pot - he rounded up anybody he thought was intellectual and had them executed. And how he told someone was intellectual or not was whether they wore glasses. If they're that clever, take them off when they see him coming! #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Clever quotes by Grenville Kleiser
#179. Discreetly keep most of your radical opinions to yourself. When with people be a listener a large part of the time. Be considerate in every word and act, and resist the tendency to say clever things. The best evidence of your culture is the tone and temper of your conversation. #Quote by Grenville Kleiser
Clever quotes by Suzanne Collins
#180. It seems like I've only shut my eyes for a few minutes, but when I open them, I flinch at the sight of Haymitch sitting a couple of feet from my bed. Waiting. Possibly for several hours if the clck is right. I think about hollering for a witness, but I'm going to have to face him sooner or later.

Haymitch leans forward and dangles something on a thin white wire in front of my nose. It's hard to focus on, but I'm pretty sur what it is. He drops it in to the sheets. "That is your earpiece. I will give you exactly one more chance to wear it. If you remove it from your ear again, I'll have you fitted with this." He holds up some sort of metal headgear that I instantly name the head shackle. "It's alternative audio unit that locks around your skull and under your chin until it's opened with a key. And I'll have the only key. If for some reason you're clever enough to disable it" ---- Haymitch dumps the head shackle on the bed and whips out a tiny silver chip--- "I'll authorize them to surgically implant this transmitter into your ear so that I may speak to you twenty-four hours a day."
Haymitch in my head full-time. Horrifying. "I'll keep the earpiece in," I mutter
"Excuse me?" He says
"I'll keep the earpiece in!" I say loud enough to wake half the hospital.
"You sure? Because I'm equally happy with any of the three options," he tells me
"I'm sure," I say. I scrunch up the earpiece protectivley in my fist and fling the head shakle back in #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Clever quotes by J.K. Rowling
#181. Good day to you, Harry Potter's relatives!" said Dedalus happily, striding into the living room. The Dursleys did not look at all happy to be addressed thus; Harry half expected another change of mind. Dudley shrank nearer to his mother at the sight of the witch and wizard.
"I see you are packed and ready. Excellent! The plan, as Harry has told you, is a simple one," said Dedalus, pulling an immense pocket watch out of his waistcoat and examining it. "We shall be leaving before Harry does. Due to the danger of using magic in your house--Harry being still underage, it could provide the Ministry with an excuse to arrest him--we shall be driving, say, ten miles or so, before Disapparating to the safe location we have picked out for you. You know how to drive, I take it?" he asked Uncle Vernon politely.
"Know how to--? Of course I ruddy well know how to drive!" spluttered Uncle Vernon.
"Very clever of you, sir, very clever, I personally would be utterly bamboozled by all those buttons and knobs," said Dedalus. He was clearly under the impression that he was flattering Vernon Dursley, who was visibly losing confidence in the plan with every word Dedalus spoke.
"Can't even drive," he muttered under his breath, his mustache rippling indignantly, but fortunately neither Dedalus nor Hestia seemed to hear him. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Clever quotes by Margaret Feinberg
#182. While some dismiss the Bible as a dusty old book, I view its pages as portals to adventure. Not only is the book chock-full of clever plots and compelling stories, but it's laced with historical insights and literary beauty. When I open the Scripture, I imagine myself exploring an ancient kingdom ... With every encounter, I learn something new about their life journeys and am reminded that the Bible is more than a record of the human quest for God: it's the revelation of God's quest for us. - Scouting the Divine #Quote by Margaret Feinberg
Clever quotes by Kenneth Grahame
#183. I'm such a clever Toad. #Quote by Kenneth Grahame
Clever quotes by Jeffrey Archer
#184. Some clever children don't discover how bright they are until after they've left school,' continued Mr Holcombe, 'and then spend the rest of their lives regretting the wasted years. #Quote by Jeffrey Archer
Clever quotes by M.C. Beaton
#186. Clever plastic surgery can restore an appearance of youth, but nothing changes the expression of age and experience in the eyes. #Quote by M.C. Beaton
Clever quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#187. I'm lazy! I hate work! Hate hard work in all its forms! Clever shortcuts, that's all I'm about! #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Clever quotes by Anna Sofia Botkin
#188. The women hailed in the bible as examples for us were exceedingly wise, clever, intelligent, capable, and quick-witted. They were not shackled to the home, brainless ans without ambition. But their ambitions were God-oriented and God-directed.
~ Jennie #Quote by Anna Sofia Botkin
Clever quotes by Russell J. Rickford
#189. Yet Betty would learn among the black Muslims that any black person clever or lucky enough to reach adulthood must choose between slumber and strugle. #Quote by Russell J. Rickford
Clever quotes by Newt Gingrich
#190. Is the purpose of free elections to allow the most clever and vicious person to aggregate power, or is the purpose of free elections to enable the American people to have a serious conversation about their country's future and try to find both a policy and a personality that they think will carry to them that better future? #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Clever quotes by Sarah MacLean
#191. You shouldn't dally with clever women. You'll never outsmart them, and before you know where you are, you're married to them. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
Clever quotes by Kathy Reichs
#192. Shelton pushed Ben lightly. "Remember when you couldn't flare without losing your temper? So Hi kicked you from behind to get you mad, and you threw him in the ocean?"
Ben snorted. "He deserved it."
"I was providing a service," Hi protested. "I recall Tory once trying to eat a mouse."
I pinched my nose. "Ugh, don't remind me."
Ella giggled. "One time Cole lost his flare while carrying a boulder. It pinned his leg for an hour."
Then everyone had a story. Our funeral became a wake.
The mood lifted as we swapped flare stories. It was cathartic. A way to say good-bye.
I caught Ben smiling at me. "I remember when Tory sniffed that mound of bird crap in the old lighthouse. I thought she'd vomit on the spot."
Chance laughed. "I knew she was too clever. Always with a trick up her sleeve."
The boys glanced at each other. Their smiles faded.
Something passed between them.
Abruptly, both looked at me.
I could see a question in their eyes. A resolve to see something through.
They talked. Oh God, they talked about me.
They're going to make me choose.
In a flash of dread, I realized I could delay this no longer.
With another jolt, I realized I didn't need to.
There was no point putting it off.
There was also no decision to make.
My eyes met a dark, intense pair staring back earnestly. Longingly. Fearfully.
I smiled. Even as my heart pounded.
Before anyone spoke, I stepped forward, leg #Quote by Kathy Reichs
Clever quotes by John Grisham
#193. A man shrewd enough and clever enough to amass such a fortune in ten years does not throw together #Quote by John Grisham
Clever quotes by Bernard Lietaer
#194. Our [American] money system is structurally brittle. It doesn't matter if you put a very clever guy or a stupid guy at the wheel. The clever guy will take a half hour to have an accident, and the stupid guy will take ten minutes. #Quote by Bernard Lietaer
Clever quotes by Dalia Mogahed
#195. I don't think there's any clever way for the establishment to take Donald Trump down. It's very simple. Another candidate is going to have to find a way either to out-maneuver him, or to just frankly beat him in the argument. #Quote by Dalia Mogahed
Clever quotes by Scott Lynch
#196. Mizzenmast," bellowed Caldris, and Locke and Jean both fetched up short, breathing heavily.
"Ship doesn't bloody have one," said Locke. "Just foremast and mainmast!"
"Oh, clever you! You've undone my subtle ruse, Master Kosta. Get your bloody uniform and we'll let you act the peacock for a few hours. #Quote by Scott Lynch

#198. Gilks sighed. 'You're a clever man, Cjelli, I grant you that,' he said, 'but you make the same
mistake a lot of clever people do of thinking everyone else is stupid. #Quote by Douglas Adams
