Diamond quotes by Eric Maskin
#1. I probably learned most at MIT by teaching and working with Peter Diamond, who acted like a big brother to me during my time in the department. #Quote by Eric Maskin
Diamond quotes by Diamond Johnson
#2. At this moment, all I was trying to do was protect the twins because years from now, I wasn't trying to be sharing our rape stories. I #Quote by Diamond Johnson
Diamond quotes by Bob Diamond
#3. Is it okay for a U.S. bank to pay a U.S. banker but not a U.K. bank to pay a U.S. banker? #Quote by Bob Diamond
Diamond quotes by Tina Fey
#4. Yeah, it's tough being smart and sexy, too. I have to say, I'm really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date. I promise you it's true. My husband Jeff Richmond saw a diamond in the rough and took me in. #Quote by Tina Fey
Diamond quotes by Grete Waitz
#5. Running gives me a clearer perspective on the world ... I've always seen the world by running, and that has allowed me to view things in a different way. Places look different in the early-morning hours, when the streets are deserted. I've smelled crabs boiling on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco on my way to the Golden Gate Bridge, watched the sun rise over Diamond Head in Hawaii, and seen deer grazing on the Alps in St. Moritz, Switzerland. I clearly remember turning to my husband, Jack, in one of these places and saying, 'People don't know what they're missing.' #Quote by Grete Waitz
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#6. Native Americans had only stone and wooden weapons and no animals that could be ridden. Those military advantages repeatedly enabled troops of a few dozen mounted Spaniards to defeat Indian armies numbering in the thousands. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Hank Green
#7. Your cruelties and mistakes may look damning to you, but that is not what I see. Every human conversation is more elegant and complex than the entire solar system that contains it. You have no idea how marvelous you are, but I am not only here to protect what you are now, I am here to protect what you will become. I can't tell you what that might be because I don't know. That unknown is a diamond in a universe of dirt. Uncertainty. Unpredictability. It is when you turn your emotions into art. It is BTS and the Sistine Chapel and Rumi's poetry and Ross Geller on the stairs yelling, 'Pivot.' Every creation great and small, they are our diamonds. And what you may be in two hundred years, we can guess with fair accuracy. What you are in two thousand . . . Oh, my friends . . . my best friends, you cannot know. #Quote by Hank Green
Diamond quotes by J.R. Ward
#8. Vishous's chest expanded ... and his diamond stare slowly swung to Butch. There was a heartbeat of intensity. Then V reached out and repositioned the cross so it once again hung over Butch's heart. You did well, cop. Congratulations, true? #Quote by J.R. Ward
Diamond quotes by J.R. Ward
#9. Vishous came up onto the dais, his eyes down. He accepted the silver glove from Z and slipped it over the black leather he already wore on his hand. Then he scored himself with a quick flash of the black blade and stared at the skull as his blood dripped down into the basin, joining the others'.

"My flesh," he whispered.

He seemed to hesitate before turning to Butch. Then he pivoted and their eyes met. As candlelight flickered over V's hard face and got caught in his diamond irises, Butch felt his breath get tight: At that moment, his roommate looked as powerful as a god...and maybe even as beautiful.

Vishous stepped in close and slid his hand from Butch's shoulder to the back of his neck. "Your flesh," V breathed. Then he paused, as if asking for something.

Without thinking, Butch titled his chin up, aware that he was offering himself, aware the he...oh, fuck. He stopped his thoughts, completely weirded out by the vibe that had sprung up from God only knew where.

In slow motion Vishous's dark head dropped down and there was a silken brush as his goatee moved against Butch's throat. With delicious precision, V's fangs pressed against the vein that ran up from Butch's heart, then slowly, inexorably, punched through skin. Their chests merged.

Butch closed his eyes and absorbed the feel of it all, the warmth of their bodies so close, the way V's hair felt soft on his jaw, the slide of a powerful male arm as it sli #Quote by J.R. Ward
Diamond quotes by Marc Jacobs
#10. You can go to Graff and buy a diamond that's flawless. You aren't going to be able to buy the same diamond at Fortunoff, but it's still a diamond you can enjoy. If fashion can allow you to have the Chanel mystique through a lipstick, then why shouldn't art allow you to have that through a sweatshirt that says 'Cremaster' on it? #Quote by Marc Jacobs
Diamond quotes by William Congreve
#11. Wit must be foiled by wit: cut a diamond with a diamond. #Quote by William Congreve
Diamond quotes by Oscar Eccentric
#12. Who can blame the poor lad for not advertising his rather unique name? Especially when his mother's maiden name is Jewel Diamond Sunrise and his grandmother's is Dawn Moonbeam Sunrise. Dawn Sunrise, such a pretty name. And it is true that your mother was almost named Red Sky Sunrise, but your grandfather said he would divorce her mother if she didn't change it. He was in the navy and thought that it was a bad omen. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, you know. And Max's grandmother didn't tell anyone that she considered calling her daughter Sunset Sunrise. Catchy isn't it? #Quote by Oscar Eccentric
Diamond quotes by Confucius
#13. Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without. #Quote by Confucius
Diamond quotes by Jed Diamond
#14. Middle age is such a low point for well-being; it's at the bottom of a U-shaped curve that shows greater happiness among the younger and older people. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Diamond quotes by Neil Diamond
#15. Fencing made me feel for the first time like a winner. #Quote by Neil Diamond
Diamond quotes by Salman Rushdie
#16. One Kashmiri morning in the early spring of 1915, my grandfather Aadam Aziz hit his nose against a frost-hardened tussock of earth while attempting to pray. Three drops of blood plopped out of his left nostril, hardened instantly in the brittle air and lay before his eyes on the prayer-mat, transformed into rubies. Lurching back until he knelt with his head once more upright, he found that the tears which had sprung to his eyes had solidified, too; and at that moment, as he brushed diamonds contemptuously from his lashes, he resolved never again to kiss earth for any god or man. This decision, however, made a hole in him, a vacancy in a vital inner chamber, leaving him vulnerable to women and history. Unaware of this at first, despite his recently completed medical training, he stood up, rolled the prayer-mat into a thick cheroot, and holding it under his right arm surveyed the valley through clear, diamond-free eyes. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#17. big-bang reproduction, or semelparity: a single reproductive effort, followed by preprogrammed death. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Sky Diamond
#18. Believe in your dreams and when people doubt you, prove them wrong. #Quote by Sky Diamond
Diamond quotes by Jed Diamond
#19. Parents and therapists offer unconditional love without needing it to be returned, yet both sides grow in love, understanding, and acceptance. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Diamond quotes by Jed Diamond
#20. If you want more love in your life, you could not find a better gift to give yourself, a friend, or a lover ... #Quote by Jed Diamond
Diamond quotes by Neil Gaiman
#21. She began to whisper something in my ear. It's the strangest thing about poetry - you can tell it's poetry, even if you don't speak the language. You can hear Homer's Greek without understanding a word, and you still know it's poetry. I've heard Polish poetry, and Inuit poetry, and I knew what it was without knowing. Her whisper was like that. I didn't know the language, but her words washed through me, perfect, and in my mind's eye I saw towers of glass and diamond; and people with eyes of the palest green; and, unstoppable, beneath every syllable, I could feel the relentless advance of the ocean. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#22. Australia is by far the driest, smallest, flattest, most infertile, climatically most unpredictable, and biologically most impoverished continent. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#23. Diamonds are held under tons and tons of pressure, extremely high temperatures of fire and shuffled under shifting of tectonic plates, for a long, long time! Yet when they come out from there and are put on display for their beauty; does anybody stop to evaluate the diamond based upon all the shit it's been through and say "Remember that disgusting hole it used to be in? I bet it was hell in there!" No, people don't remember where a diamond has come from; they just see the beauty of it now. But it wouldn't have become so beautiful, you know, if not for all of that! So why should we look at other people, or at ourselves and evaluate them/ourselves based upon their/our pasts? Shouldn't we forget that? And only see the beauty that is in front of our eyes? Whatever it was, it made you beautiful! And that is what matters! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Diamond quotes by Sri Jibankrishna Or Diamond
#24. The new definition of God - It has the root in Vedanta. The concentrated form of the whole human race is God. Where does it concentrate? In Vedanta it has the explanation. Where is the universe? It is within the body of every human being. It is the realization of Vedanta. It cannot be proved outside. First comes visualization of Atma or soul, then visualization of universe within Atma. Where Atma is visualized? This occurs within this body. Then it comes that the universe is within this body and again it is outside. #Quote by Sri Jibankrishna Or Diamond
Diamond quotes by Frankie Boyle
#25. The owners of a dog which swallowed a diamond worth £12000 had to wait three days until it re-emerged. With a bit of planning it could have been a nice way to propose. #Quote by Frankie Boyle
Diamond quotes by Charles Simonyi
#26. Programming today is the opposite of diamond mining. In diamond mining you dig up a lot of dirt to find a small bit of value. With programming you start with the value, the real intention, and bury it in a bunch of dirt. #Quote by Charles Simonyi
Diamond quotes by Mike Bond
#27. We sat bathed in luscious darkness, Casco Bay's thousand islands spread out before us like a diamond quilt. 'I don't get enough of this,' she said. #Quote by Mike Bond
Diamond quotes by Leona Lewis
#28. Diamonds are supposed to be a girl's best friend but it's impossible to know for sure where they have come from so I find it is safer just to avoid them altogether. #Quote by Leona Lewis
Diamond quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#29. As the steamer continued the crossing, Pandora tugged off her left glove to admirer wedding ring, as she'd already done a dozen times that day. Gabriel had chosen a loose sapphire from the collection of Challon family jewels, and had it set in a gold and diamond ring mounting. The Ceylon sapphire, cut and polished into a smooth dome, was a rare stone that gleamed with a twelve-ray star instead of six. To his satisfaction, Pandora seemed inordinately pleased by the ring, and was fascinated by the way the star seemed to move across the surface of the sapphire. The effect, called asterism, was especially noticeable in the sunlight.
"What causes the star?" Pandora asked, as she tilted her hand this way and that.
Gabriel tucked a kiss behind the soft lobe of her ear. "A few tiny imperfections," he murmured, "that make it all the more beautiful. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Diamond quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#30. Every tooth in a man's head is more valuable than a diamond #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Diamond quotes by Russell Simmons
#31. When I started the diamond business, no black person, period, was in it to do what we're trying to do to change the industry. So I like to do things that I see clearly that are in my, you know, scope. And then, I had to figure how I get talented or smart business people around me to execute. That's what I have to do. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Diamond quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#32. All people want to belong to some sort of hierarchy. Allow me to explain. The rich want to be the richest; the poor want to be the smartest; those who are both rich and smart want to be the better persons; the better persons want to go to heaven; those who are in heaven will look down upon those who are in hell... there is always some kind of hierarchy desired by everyone; even by those who claim the opposite of this. So how do you find true divinity? Divinity is found in those who reach down low; because it is those who are above who must reach down low, while it is those who are below who must constantly reach for what is above! And this is divinity. What is divine, is what will have a curiosity in what is below. There is no fear of becoming "tainted"; because what is lesser can never really taint what is greater. it is what is greater that is able to transform what is lesser. The alchemist must first find the mud, pick it up, before she is able to transform it into diamond. She must first reach into the swamp, in order to pull out roses. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Diamond quotes by Dustin Diamond
#33. If I ever went, I'd want to go peacefully in my sleep. I wouldn't want to plan my own death. #Quote by Dustin Diamond
Diamond quotes by George MacDonald
#34. Ah, but, dear North Wind, you don't know how nice it is to feel your arms about me. It is a thousand times better to have them and the wind together, than to have only your hair and the back of your neck and no wind at all."

"But it is surely more comfortable there?"

"Well, perhaps; but I begin to think there are better things than being comfortable."

"Yes, indeed there are. Well, I will keep you in front of me. You will feel the wind, but not too much. I shall only want one arm to take care of you; the other will be quite enough to sink the ship."

"Oh, dear North Wind! how can you talk so?"

"My dear boy, I never talk; I always mean what I say."

"Then you do mean to sink the ship with the other hand?"

"Yes."

"It's not like you."

"How do you know that?"

"Quite easily. Here you are taking care of a poor little boy with one arm, and there you are sinking a ship with the other. It can't be like you."

"Ah! but which is me? I can't be two mes, you know."

"No. Nobody can be two mes."

"Well, which me is me?"

"Now I must think. There looks to be two."

"Yes. That's the very point. - You can't be knowing the thing you don't know, can you?"

"No."

"Which me do you know?"

"The kindest, goodest, best me in the world," answered Diamond, clinging to North Wind.

"Why am I good to you?"
#Quote by George MacDonald
Diamond quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#35. As she lifted the glittering strand of diamonds from the box, a small slip of paper fell out. She caught it as it wafted toward the floor. Four words in ancient script, an arrogantly slanted scrawl.
Accept these, accept me.
Well, she thought, blinking, that was
certainly direct and to the point.
-Adam's note to Gabrielle #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Diamond quotes by Lana Del Rey
#36. Dope and diamonds, dope and diamonds, that's all that I want #Quote by Lana Del Rey
Diamond quotes by Robinson Jeffers
#37. Sad sons of the stormy fall,
No escape, you have to inflict and endure; surely it is time for you
To learn to touch the diamond within to the diamond outside,
Thinning your humanity a little between the invulnerable diamonds,
Knowing that your angry choices and hopes and terrors are in vain,
But life and death not in vain; and the world is like a flight of swans. #Quote by Robinson Jeffers
Diamond quotes by Rebecca M. Gibson
#38. She noticed as if in a dream, a single diamond hair comb fall to the floor. The sparkling jewels landed face down in the mud. #Quote by Rebecca M. Gibson
Diamond quotes by Kenneth G. Mills
#39. The fire of the diamond of true Identity is always there; it just needs the Master's crafting to reveal it. #Quote by Kenneth G. Mills
Diamond quotes by Christian D. Larson
#40. You can lead mankind into the gold mines of the mind and into the diamond fields of the soul, and the secret lies in the words you speak. #Quote by Christian D. Larson
Diamond quotes by Saleem Sharma
#41. Flowers say you're sorry.
A date says you've learnt your lesson.
A diamond says both the above.
All three and you're making her suspicious. #Quote by Saleem Sharma
Diamond quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#42. Wealth of time is actually of more value than natural resources (petroleum, gold, diamond, gas etc.) and more valuable than human resources. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Diamond quotes by Katharine Sergeant Angell White
#43. Consider the many special delights a lawn affords: soft mattress for a creeping baby; worm hatchery for a robin; croquet or badminton court; baseball diamond; restful green perspectives leading the eye to a background of flower beds, shrubs, or hedge; green shadows - This lawn, a carpet all alive/With shadows flung from leaves' - as changing and as spellbinding as the waves of the sea, whether flecked with sunlight under trees of light foliage, like elm and locust, or deep, dark, solid shade, moving slowly as the tide, under maple and oak. This carpet! #Quote by Katharine Sergeant Angell White
Diamond quotes by Sam Kean
#44. On a submicro scale, pure diamond is billions of billions of carbon atoms bonded to one another. If you shrunk yourself down and stood inside the diamond, you'd see nothing but carbon in a perfect pattern in every direction. #Quote by Sam Kean
Diamond quotes by Unknown
#45. don't lose a diamond while you're busy chasing glitter. #Quote by Unknown
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#46. In short, Europe's colonization of Africa had nothing to do with differences between European and African peoples themselves, as white racists assume. Rather, it was due to accidents of geography and biogeography - in particular, to the continents' different areas, axes, and suites of wild plant and animal species. That is, the different historical trajectories of Africa and Europe stem ultimately from differences in real estate. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by George MacDonald
#47. It's not good at all - mind that, Diamond - to do everything for those you love, and not give them a share in the doing. It's not kind. It's making too much of yourself. #Quote by George MacDonald
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#48. Naturally, what makes patriotic and religious fanatics such dangerous opponents is not the deaths of the fanatics themselves, but their willingness to accept the deaths of a fraction of their number in order to annihilate or crush their infidel enemy. Fanaticism in war, of the type that drove recorded Christian and Islamic conquests, was probably unknown on Earth until chiefdoms and especially states emerged within the last 6,000 years. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Turcois Ominek
#49. One day they'll realize they lost a diamond while playing with worthless stones. #Quote by Turcois Ominek
Diamond quotes by Greg King
#50. Many in America, as one social historian wrote, 'believed implicitly that New York's social leaders went to bed in full evening dress, brushed their teeth in vintage champagne, married their daughters without exception to shady French counts, and arrayed their poodle dogs in diamond tiaras.' ... #Quote by Greg King
Diamond quotes by Bob Diamond
#51. The ultimate arbiters of the models of banking and the management of banking are the investors. It's the shareholders. #Quote by Bob Diamond
Diamond quotes by Henry Miller
#52. The creative life! Ascension. Passing beyond oneself. Rocketing out into the blue, grasping at flying ladders, mounting, soaring, lifting the world up by the scalp, rousing the angels from their ethereal lairs, drowning in stellar depths, clinging to the tails of comets. Nietzsche had written of it ecstatically - and then swooned forward into the mirror to die in root and flower. «Stairs and contradictory stairs,» he wrote, and then suddenly there was no longer any bottom; the mind, like a splintered diamond, was pulverized by the hammer−blows of truth. There was a time when I acted as my father's keeper. I was left alone for long hours, cooped up in the little booth which we used as an office. While he was drinking with his cronies I was feeding from the bottle of creative life. My companions were the free spirits, the overlords of the soul. The young man sitting there in the mingy yellow light became completely unhinged; he lived in the crevices of great thoughts, crouched like a hermit in the barren folds of a lofty mountain range. From truth he passed to imagination and from imagination to invention. At this last portal, through which there is no return, fear beset him. To venture farther was to wander alone, to rely wholly upon oneself. The purpose of discipline is to promote freedom. But freedom leads to infinity and infinity is terrifying. Then arose the comforting thought of stopping at the brink, of setting down in words the mysteries of impulsion, compulsion, propu #Quote by Henry Miller
Diamond quotes by Anthony Doerr
#53. Her father says to tamp down her imagination. Stones are just stones and rain is just rain and misfortune is just bad luck. Some things are simply more rare than others, and that's why there are locks. "But, Papa, do you believe it's real?" "The diamond or the curse?" "Both. Either." "They're just stories, Marie. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Diamond quotes by Edward Hoagland
#54. Hard-bitten had a double meaning: bitten hard by life, like her, or clamping meanly down on other people. But, as though belying his thoughts, she said, "I hope your days are good."
"If only. My eyes, you know, are like Swiss cheese, the doctor says. I see through the holes. #Quote by Edward Hoagland
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#55. Civilization originates in conquest abroad and repression at home. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Alan Armstrong
#56. These new prospective projects include the Appalachian Connector and the Diamond East projects, both are major new projects that connect the burgeoning supplies from the Marcellus and Utica directly to growing demand on Transco that is anxious to see the supplies coming their way as those markets strive to grow as well. #Quote by Alan Armstrong
Diamond quotes by Diamond Johnson
#57. Months back when Rashard had got drunk off his ass and decided to spend the night at my crib, I was the one that told Quanie to go take those pictures #Quote by Diamond Johnson
Diamond quotes by Jeannette Walls
#58. Bought me another snow cone, and, as he gave it to me, planted a diamond ring on top. "A piece of ice that I'm hoping will make you melt," he said. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Diamond quotes by Avijeet Das
#59. The next generation should embrace their struggles. A butterfly develops only after a struggle to break free from its cocoon. A diamond can only emerge after taking in all the pressure that it can. Struggle hard and never ever give up! You are born to be a Hero. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Diamond quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#60. If you give a five thousand dollar diamond ring to a two year old child, sooner or later, that child is going to lose the treasure. Even though you could have meant well, yet the child would misplace the diamond. It is obvious because that child doesn't know the value of a diamond ring. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Diamond quotes by Karl Marx
#61. We cannot tell by looking at the diamond that it is a commodity. When it serves as a use-value, asthetic or mechanical, on the breast of a harlot, or in the hand of a glasscutter, it is a diamond and not a commodity. #Quote by Karl Marx
Diamond quotes by Harry Crews
#62. White people were dangerous and snakes were dangerous and now the two were working together, each doing what the other told it to. She was sure she had seen a snake in a weeded ditch with the head of a white man. Right after she came out of the house on the way to Big Joe's, which she had immediately forgotten, she saw it, long and black and diamond-patterned in the ditch with a white man's head. It had blue eyes. The bluest eyes any white man ever had. She was sure she had seen it. She thought she had seen it. Maybe it was only a dream or a memory of another time. Whatever it was, she still saw it every time she closed her eyes, coiled there on the back of her eyelids, blue-eyed and dangerous. #Quote by Harry Crews
Diamond quotes by Jennifer Crusie
#63. I even yelled at you last night." Phin eased up. "For which I apologize."
"It was kind of nice," Sophie said. "At least you know I was there."
"Oh hell, Spohie, I always know you're there." Phin rolled twords her on one hip, and Sophie felt felt a flare of hope, but he was just digging something out of his back pocket. "Here." He weld out an emerald-cut diamond ring the size of her head. "Marry me, Julie Ann. Ruin the rest of my life."
"Hello." Sophie gasped at the ring. "Jeez, that thing is huge. Where did you get it?"
"My mother gave it to me," Phin said sounding bemused.
Then the other shoe dropped. "Marry you?" Sophie said, and the sun came out and the birds to sing and the river sent up a cheer. Marriage was probably out- Liz as a mother-in-law was too terrifying to complete , and Phin would never get elected agian if he was married to a pornographer- but suddenly everything else was looking pretty good. #Quote by Jennifer Crusie
Diamond quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#64. A diamond is proof that you sometimes have to go through a great deal of pressure before you can shine. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Diamond quotes by Chuck Tanner
#65. Having Willie Stargell on your ball club is like having a diamond ring on your finger. #Quote by Chuck Tanner

Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#68. History as well as life itself is complicated
neither life nor history is an enterprise for those who seek simplicity and consistency. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Katharine McGee
#69. At the mention of children, Connor halted his steps. For a moment Beatrice thought he was going to storm off, turn away from her and never look back.
Instead he fell to one knee before her. Time went momentarily still. In some dazed part of her mind Beatrice remembered Teddy, kneeling stiffly at her feet as he swore to be her liege man. This felt utterly different. Even kneeling, Connor looked like a warrior, every line of his body radiating a tensed power and strength.
"It kills me that I don't have more to offer you," he said roughly. "I have no lands, no fortune, no title. All I can give you is my honor, and my heart. Which already belongs to you."
She would have fallen in love with him right then, if she didn't already love him so fiercely that every cell of her body burned with it.
"I love you, Bee. I've loved you for so long I've forgotten what it felt like not to love you."
"I love you, too." Her eyes stung with tears.
"I get that you have to marry someone before your dad dies. But you can't marry Teddy Eaton."
She watched as he fumbled in his jacket for something - had he bought a ring? She thought wildly - but what he pulled out instead was a black Sharpie. Still kneeling before her, he slid the diamond engagement ring off Beatrice's finger and tucked it in the pocket of her jacket. Using the Sharpie, he traced a thin loop around the skin of Beatrice's finger, where the ring had been.
"I'm sorry it isn't a real ring, but I #Quote by Katharine McGee

Diamond quotes by Jed Diamond
#72. The physical body itself is continually vibrating and resonating with other energies in the environment. While Western medicine has developed few interventions that are based in the recognition that energy is at the foundation of, or at least intimately intertwined with, physical matter, scientists from many other disciplines are working within this perspective. They are, for example, recognizing the potential explanatory power of fields that are 'totally unlike any of those presently known' in the ways they hold and transmit information, display quantum properties such as nonlocal influence, and interact with consciousness. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Diamond quotes by Drew Chadwick
#73. Love is priceless. And all I really want is a good night kiss. So if tears were diamonds, more valuable gold, then a fortune in the corners of my eyes I would hold. #Quote by Drew Chadwick
Diamond quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#74. MEET MR. HIV," writes an 11-year-old child, over a diamond-shaped face from which six scaly legs extend. "He invades your body. This is what he looks like when he does," another child writes over a scary-looking monster that resembles a tarantula. An HIV-infected 12-year-old draws a transparent yellow picture of his body filled with hairy, bloblike creatures that resemble paramecia and amoebae. "I hate you because you do bad things to my body," writes another boy. "Go pick on someone your own size. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Diamond quotes by Kresley Cole
#75. Once I faced a female with diamond skin," Nix said breathlessly. "I was transfixed - even as she was choking the life out of me."
"Really?"
" No, I saw that character on X men. I just wanted to commiserate. Alas, I have no weaknesses."
"Except your insanity," Lucia pointed out.
sigh. "Well played, Archer. then carry on ... #Quote by Kresley Cole
Diamond quotes by J.D. Robb
#76. She thought she loved him. What do you have in your pocket?"
He smiled, drew out the gray button that had fallen off her very ugly suit the first day they'd met.
"See?" She couldn't say why that stupid button moved her so damn much. "People in love keep things. Sentimental things."
"What do you have?"
She pulled the chain, and the tear-shaped diamond from under her shirt. "I wouldn't wear this for anybody but you. It's embarrassing. And - "
"Ah, something else."
"Shit. I'm tired. It makes me gabby. I have one of your shirts."
His brow creased in absolute bafflement. "My shirts?"
"In my drawer, under a bunch of stuff. You lent it to me the morning after our first night together. It still sort of smells like you."
For a moment, the worry on his face simply dissolved. "I believe that's the sweetest thing you've said to me in all our time together."
"Well, I owed you. Besides, you have enough shirts to outfit a Broadway troupe. So, help me toss the room?"
"Absolutely. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Diamond quotes by 5 Seconds Of Summer
#77. Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Simmer down, simmer down
They say we're too young now to amount to anything else
But look around
We work too damn hard for this just to give it up now
If you don't swim, you'll drown
But don't move, honey

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
And I know now, that I'm so down (hey!)

Hey, hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Let's get out, let's get out
'Cause this deadbeat town's only here just to keep us down
While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking
If I showed up with a plane ticket
And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it
Would you wanna run away too?
'Cause all I really want is you

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
I made a mixtape straight out of '94
I've got your ripped skinny jeans lying on the floor
And I know now, that I'm so down

Hey, hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

You look so perfect standing there

Diamond quotes by Charles Dickens
#78. Then, at the end of every hand, Miss Bolo would inquire with a dismal countenance and reproachful sigh, why Mr. Pickwick had not returned that diamond, or led the club, or roughed the spade, or finessed the heart, or led through the honour, or brought out the ace, or played up to the king, or some such thing; and in reply to all these grave charges, Mr. Pickwick would be wholly unable to plead any justification whatever, having by this time forgotten all about the game. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Diamond quotes by Confucius
#79. A blemish may be removed from a diamond by careful polishing, but evil words once spoken cannot be effaced. #Quote by Confucius
Diamond quotes by Jimmy Piersall
#80. Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. #Quote by Jimmy Piersall
Diamond quotes by Jardine Libaire
#81. But Elise eclipses the woman from Jamey's future, the lady in tennis whites flashing her diamond as she drinks orange juice fresh-squeezed by a maid. A woman Jamey never quite believed in anyway. #Quote by Jardine Libaire
Diamond quotes by Sara Teasdale
#82. Morning Song


A diamond of a morning
Waked me an hour too soon;
Dawn had taken in the stars
And left the faint white moon.

O white moon, you are lonely,
It is the same with me,
But we have the world to roam over,
Only the lonely are free. #Quote by Sara Teasdale
Diamond quotes by Jed Diamond
#83. Anything that helps us know ourselves more deeply, love ourselves more fully, improve our social connections with family and friends, and engage us more completely with the earth, animals, and environment, is a good resource for healing. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Diamond quotes by Riitta Klint
#84. Nothing like being woken up after only a few hours of sleep by workmen wanting to come into your sanctuary to check water lines to put life into perspective. Wine glasses, dishes, yesterday's ghosts, and a fucking mess everywhere. It's not all about me, is it? Life moves around out there and sometimes it wants to come in and mess with me when all I want to do is turn over and hide. I am a fragile being, sometimes it takes almost nothing to knock me off my feet and make me tired of living. Sometimes I am so tired that everything is a gargantuan effort. But I'm strong, I always hang on and hold on. My emotions run from being elated and looking up to the sky and seeing all the infinite possibilities, to looking straight into the eyes of Hades. But you know me, I always come through with all my scars, all the love I carry in my heart, and my crooked tiara. Every single diamond in that tiara reflects all the light within me and within you. Indestructible #Quote by Riitta Klint
Diamond quotes by Debra Holland
#85. On the road leading from his ranch to Samantha's, Wyat t drove his surrey up a small hill and caught his breath as the beauty of the large crescent moon dangling just out of reach over the crest A full moon would have been plump with luminescence, yet the pearly surface of the sickle still cast enough light to shadow his surroundings and seemed close enough that once he drove to the top of the hill, he'd be able to touch the bottom horn or at least toss a rope around it. He slackened the reins, slowing the horse, knowing that the higher he climbed, the sooner the illusion of closeness would disappear and he wanted to preserve for a moment the fantasy that the moon was within his grasp.
The stars, by contrast, were distant pricks of diamond light farther out than a man could dream. He sighed. Life as a rancher or as a rancher's wife was not moon and stars easy or romantic. What would put stars in Samantha's eyes? #Quote by Debra Holland
Diamond quotes by Sophie Tucker
#86. Once you start carrying your own suitcase, paying your own bills, running your own show, you've done something to yourself that makes you one of those women men like to call 'a pal' and 'a good sport,' the kind of woman they tell their troubles to. But you've cut yourself off from the orchids and the diamond bracelets, except those you buy yourself. #Quote by Sophie Tucker
Diamond quotes by Jennifer Allison
#87. When I first entered the school, I was all set to tie my hair in a ponytail, get a fake tan, and write my homework in pink gel ink. I was prepared to hear girls bragging nonchalantly about the BMWs and diamond earrings they recieved for their birthday. I almost looked forward to hearing the flashlight-wielding nuns tell me to "leave room for the holy ghost" when I danced lewedly with messy-haired prep-school boys #Quote by Jennifer Allison
Diamond quotes by Andrea  Smith
#88. Any time, Diamond," he replied, giving me a sexy smile. He turned going back to his group. I watched as he sauntered away, totally mesmerized by his powerful presence. That was the only way that I could describe it. There was a sense of power he exuded; and it was sexy; damn sexy. #Quote by Andrea Smith
Diamond quotes by Michelle Kwan
#89. It's incredible. Nine? Wow. I just remember winning my first one, getting the medal and the plate, the pin with the diamond for first place. My ninth title, I have no answer for that because I never thought it would be possible. #Quote by Michelle Kwan
Diamond quotes by Marilyn Monroe
#90. A kiss on the hand might feel very good, but a diamond tiara is forever. #Quote by Marilyn Monroe
Diamond quotes by Ron Rash
#91. Not for the first time, it occurred to me that sorrow could be purified into song the same way a piece of coal is purified into a diamond. #Quote by Ron Rash
Diamond quotes by Spencer Pratt
#92. Madonna, eat your heart out, Britney Spears, eat your heart out. I would say we have diamond records coming - they're gonna sell 10-million plus. #Quote by Spencer Pratt
Diamond quotes by J.R. Ward
#93. His cheeks were slick with tears that spilled over his diamond eyes, a ceaseless flow he neither noticed nor appeared to care about. And she had a feeling it was going to be a while before the leaking stopped-an inner artery had been nicked and this was the blood of his heart, spilling out of him, covering him. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Diamond quotes by Hill Harper
#94. The media is convincing people that if you have that 'next thing,' that diamond, the right car, then you'd be happier. #Quote by Hill Harper
Diamond quotes by Seanan McGuire
#95. Because the air had smelled so sweet, and the sky had been black velvet, spangled with points of diamond light that didn't flicker at all, only burned constant and cold. Because the grass had been wet with dew, and the trees had been heavy with fruit. Because she had wanted to know what was at the end of the long path between the trees, and because she hadn't wanted to turn back before she understood everything. Because for the first time in forever, she'd felt like she was going home, and that feeling had been enough to move her feet, slowly at first, and then faster, and faster, until she had been running through the clean night air, and nothing else mattered, or would ever matter again. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Diamond quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#96. Do not go for glass beads leaving the mine of diamonds. This life is a great chance. What, seekest thou the pleasures of the world? He is the fountain of all bliss. See for the highest, aim at that highest, and you shall reach the highest. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Diamond quotes by Sarah Ockler
#97. Beneath the vast diamond sky, I felt both all important and utterly significant, the goddess and the damned in equal measure. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Diamond quotes by Merry Clayton
#98. Back when I was working with the Stones and with Joe Cocker and Neil Young and Neil Diamond and all of those - 'the boys,' I call them - it was fun. #Quote by Merry Clayton
Diamond quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#99. White Pond and Walden are great crystals on the surface of the earth, Lakes of Light. If they were permanently congealed, and small enough to be clutched, they would, perchance, be carried off by slaves, like precious stones, to adorn the heads of emperors; but being liquid, and ample, and secured to us and our successors forever, we disregard them, and run after the diamond of Kohinoor. They are too pure to have a market value; they contain no muck. How much more beautiful than our lives, how much more transparent than our characters, are they! #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Diamond quotes by Julie Ann Dawson
#100. You don't create a diamond by rubbing it with fluffy bunny slippers. You need to apply pressure and heat. There are enough air-headed cheerleaders out there. We need more drill sergeants. #Quote by Julie Ann Dawson
Diamond quotes by Neil Diamond
#101. Over the years, you grow up, you mature and you see things in a different way, and it's reflected in the writing. #Quote by Neil Diamond
Diamond quotes by Rachel Olsen
#102. What is the most valuable thing on earth? It's not the Hope Diamond, or the National Treasury. It's not a Picasso collection, or the Microsoft fortune. It is the wisdom of God, seen in the pages of your Bible. You've had access to it all along. #Quote by Rachel Olsen
Diamond quotes by Daniel J. O’Leary Quoting Bearwatcher, An Apache Medicine Man
#103. In the Apache language there is no word for 'guilt.' Our lives are like diamonds. When we are born we are pure and uncut. Each thing that happens to us in our lives teaches us how to reflect the light in the world; each experience gives us a new cut, a new facet in our diamond. How brilliantly do those diamonds sparkle whose facets are many, to whom life has given many cuts! #Quote by Daniel J. O’Leary Quoting Bearwatcher, An Apache Medicine Man
Diamond quotes by Andre Maurois

Diamond quotes by Francis Mandewah
#105. My story has more than a "great white hope" plot. I loved and respected Tom because he was a servant of God who happened to be white, just as I feel I am a servant of God who happens to be black and from Africa. #Quote by Francis Mandewah
Diamond quotes by Neil Diamond
#106. Whatever success I've had so far has been assimilated into my body and mind. #Quote by Neil Diamond
Diamond quotes by Claudia Black
#107. My boyfriend's idea of a lesson was to take me on a black diamond run in the middle of a hail storm and say, 'Go!' Ski patrol had to escort me to another lift to get me down the mountain. No, that wasn't humiliating, not at all. #Quote by Claudia Black
Diamond quotes by Anne Perry
#108. choosing a gown of a dark blue-gray so soft that in the shadow it looked almost indigo. The line of the neck and the sweep of the skirt were both very flattering, and cut in the fashion of the moment. Deliberately she wore no jewelry, except very small diamond drop earrings. Her shining silver hair was ornament enough. #Quote by Anne Perry
Diamond quotes by Carew Papritz
#109. More than likely you'll do well enough alone by the engines of your own fate until you either hit a few really nasty bumps in the road or grow old enough to realize that there may be a diamond or two in what you thought was your old man's bucket. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond

Diamond quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#113. I would say Will came at a time in my life where he saw beauty in me that I didn't see in myself at the time. And, you know, he saw a diamond in the rough and kind of, picked me up and blew off all the dust and said, 'I'm telling you, I'm going to make you shine, girl.' #Quote by Jada Pinkett Smith
Diamond quotes by Bat For Lashes
#114. I have been listening a lot to The Carpenters and Neil Diamond, Elton John, and thinking, like, 'God, it'd be great to write a sort of subversive, alternative ballad,' like Lou Reed does so well with 'Perfect Day.' And I really loved 'Video Games' - at the time, it hadn't really got as big, but it's a classic song; you can't deny it. #Quote by Bat For Lashes
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#115. Thousands of years ago, humans domesticated every possible large wild mammal species fulfilling all those criteria and worth domesticating, with the result that there have been no valuable additions of domestic animals in recent times, despite the efforts of modern science. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Adam Smith
#116. The things which have the greatest value in use have frequently little or no value in exchange; and, on the contrary, those which have the greatest value in exchange have frequently little or no value in use. Nothing is more useful than water; but it will purchase scarce any thing; scarce any thing can be had in exchange for it. A diamond, on the contrary, has scarce any value in use; but a very great quantity of other goods may frequently be had in exchange for it. #Quote by Adam Smith
Diamond quotes by J.C. Ryle
#117. Holy, holy, holy", seems written on every page. To talk of comparing the Bible with other "sacred books" so-called, such as the Koran, the Shasters, or the book of Mormon, is positively absurd. You might as well compare the sun with a rushlight, or Skiddaw with a mole hill, or St. Paul's with an Irish hovel, or the Portland vase with a garden pot, or the Koh-i-noor diamond with a bit of glass. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Diamond quotes by Blaque Diamond

Diamond quotes by Lena Dunham
#121. None of my actions have ever sort of been motored by the search for a husband or wondering if I was going to have a family someday or wanting to live in a really great house or thinking it would be really great to have a diamond. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Diamond quotes by Robert Graves
#122. The difference between you and her
(whom I to you did once prefer)
Is clear enough to settle:
She like a diamond shone, but you
Shine like an early drop of dew
Poised on a red rose petal.
The dew-drop carries in its eye
Mountain and forest, sea and sky,
With every change of weather;
Contrariwise, a diamond splits
The prospect into idle bits
That none can piece together. #Quote by Robert Graves
Diamond quotes by Bob Diamond
#123. I never set money as a goal. It was a result. #Quote by Bob Diamond
Diamond quotes by J.A. Ironside
#124. Maybe because I knew Haze and Kate so well by then the passage leapt out at me, clear and sharp as diamond.

"My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath…He's always,
always in my mind: not as a pleasure any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being."

A love that was terrifying in its depth, but all the more enticing because of that. I thought I understood. Love could be just as destructive as hate if it became poisoned or twisted. #Quote by J.A. Ironside
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#125. The main thing that gives me hope is the media. We have radio, TV, magazines, and books, so we have the possibility of learning from societies that are remote from us, like Somalia. We turn on the TV and see what blew up in Iraq or we see conditions in Afghanistan. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by James Galway
#126. I have to report to those of you who think diamonds make a difference that I cannot tell what it is. Seriously, as you all know, they make no difference at all. They just make the flute look a little more special. #Quote by James Galway
Diamond quotes by Alyson Richman
#127. She always told us there were two types of women. Those who are lit from the outside and those who are lit from within. The first needs the shimmer of a diamond to maker her sparkle, but for the other, her beauty is illuminated through the sheer light of her soul. #Quote by Alyson Richman
Diamond quotes by Maya Angelou
#128. I have forgiven myself; I'll make a change. Once that forgiveness has taken place you can console yourself with the knowledge that a diamond is the result of extreme pressure. Less pressure is crystal, less than that is coal, less than that is fossilized leaves or plain dirt. Pressure can change you into something quite precious, quite wonderful, quote beautiful and extremely hard. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Diamond quotes by Louise Erickson
#129. It's been the same since caveman days, this game of love - they just changed the trumps from clubs to diamonds. #Quote by Louise Erickson
Diamond quotes by Anne Rainey
#130. Suddenly, Cain flipped her over and caged her in, his muscled strength creating a protective embrace. "My diamond," he growled. "You are home."
She lifted her hand and cupped his cheek, then murmured, "Yes. I am."
"I was dead without you. I would have ended up a shell like Rafael."
She kissed him, hating the pain in his voice. "No, never like him. He was evil, Cain, his soul black. Yours isn't. Just a little gray."
He smirked. "Gray?"
She shrugged. "Well you aren't lily white, that's for certain. #Quote by Anne Rainey
Diamond quotes by Suraj Sharma
#131. If you take a diamond that's raw and you put one face to it, it has that one face, and then you've gotta find another face. At the end, you're going to have this diamond that's everything you've done. I feel that's the way you should look at it because that puts you in a constant state of progress. #Quote by Suraj Sharma
Diamond quotes by Melissa Jensen
#132. Favorite painting...?"
"Painting? Odalisque," I said.
"Really.His non-nude nude. Interesting."
It was,to me. Edward's most famous painting of Diana is Troie, where he painted her as Helen of Troy: naked except for the diamond bracelet and the occasional tendril of auburn hair. It had caused quite a stir at its exhibition. Apparently, Millicent Carnegie Biddle fainted on seeing it. It wasn't quite what she was used to viewing when she sat across from Mrs. Edward Willing every few weeks, sipping tea from Wedgewood china cups.
Odalisque was more daring in its way, and infinitely more interesting to me. Most of the Post-Impressionist painters did an odalisque, or harem girl, reclining on a sofa or carpet, promising with their eyes that whatever it was that they did to men, they did it well. An odalisque was almost compulsory material.But unlike any of them,Edward had painted his subject-Diana-covered from neck to ankle in shimmery gauze.Covered,but still the ultimate object of desire.
"Why that one?" Dr. Rothaus asked.
"I don't know-"
"Oh,please.Don't go all stupid teenager on me now.You know exactly why you like the painting.Humor me and articulate it."
I felt myself beginning the ubiquitos shoulder dip. "Okay. Everyone is covering up something. I guess I think there's an interesting question there."
"'What are they hiding?'"
I shook my head. "'Does it make a difference?'"
"Ah." One sharp corner of her mouth lifted. I would #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Diamond quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#133. In the movie where somebody is invisible all the sudden - you know, a nuclear radiation fluke or a mad scientist recipe - and you think, what would I do if I was invisible...? Like go into the guy's locker room at Gold's Gym or, better yet, the Oakland Raiders' locker room. Stuff like that. Scope things out. Go to Tiffany's and shoplift diamond tiaras and stuff. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Diamond quotes by Jamie Begley
#134. begrudgingly. "When you're done, I expect to see you." Diamond nodded before going down #Quote by Jamie Begley
Diamond quotes by James      Martin
#135. Many Jesuit jokes play on our (supposed) struggles to be humble. One has a Jesuit, a Franciscan, and a Dominican dying and going to heaven. They are ushered into God's throne room, where God is seated on an immense, diamond-encrusted gold chair. God says to the Dominican, "Son of St. Dominic, what do you believe?" The Dominican answers, "I believe in God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth." God asks the Franciscan, "Son of St. Francis, what do you believe?" The Franciscan says, "I believe in your son, Jesus, who came to work with the poor." Finally God turns to the Jesuit and from his great throne asks, "Son of St. Ignatius, what do you believe?" The Jesuit says, "I believe... you're in my seat! #Quote by James Martin

#136. How much better might human communication be if words were as precious as diamonds? If each of us were allotted only 100 words per day? #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#137. Britain never regained its naval and economic dominance over the world, and it remains notoriously conflicted ("Brexit") about its role in Europe. But Britain is still among the world's six richest nations, is still a parliamentary democracy under a figurehead monarch, is still a world leader in science and technology, and still maintains as its currency the pound sterling rather than the euro #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Mark Twain
#138. If we hadn't our bewitching autumn foliage, we should still have to credit the weather with one feature which compensates for all its bullying vagaries-the ice storm: when a leafless tree is clothed with ice from the bottom to the top – ice that is as bright and clear as crystal; when every bough and twig is strung with ice-beads, frozen dew-drops, and the whole tree sparkles cold and white, like the Shah of Persia's diamond plume. Then the wind waves the branches and the sun comes out and turns all those myriads of beads and drops to prisms that glow and burn and flash with all manner of colored fires, which change and change again with inconceivable rapidity from blue to red, from red to green, and green to gold-the tree becomes a spraying fountain, a very explosion of dazzling jewels; and it stands there the acme, the climax, the supremest possibility in art or nature, of bewildering, intoxicating, intolerable magnificence. One cannot make the words too strong. #Quote by Mark Twain
Diamond quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#139. The autumn stars had come out, incredible in number and brilliance, twinkling and almost blinking because of the dust stirred up by the earthquake and the wind, so that the whole sky seemed to tremble, a shaking of diamond chips, a scintillation of sunlight on a black sea. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Diamond quotes by BinYamin Gulzar
#140. He murmured ,

"Hope" is a dangerous thing,
Its makes you see things that aren't there.
The " pain" makes you hallucinate ,
It's like dragging your torn and tired soul through the haunted woods,
And the light that you see at the end must be my calling!

And she said ,
'You are broken ...
All beautiful things are broken !'

A broken soul allows the "light to scatter like a Diamond #Quote by BinYamin Gulzar
Diamond quotes by Elizabeth Bishop
#141. But he sleeps on the top of his mast
with his eyes closed tight.
The gull inquired into his dream,
which was, I must not fall.
The spangled sea below wants me to fall.
It is hard as diamonds; it wants to destroy us all. #Quote by Elizabeth Bishop
Diamond quotes by Samuel Johnson
#142. The chief advantage which these fictions have over real life is, that their authors are at liberty, though not to invent, yet to select objects, and to cull from the mass of mankind, those individuals upon which the attention ought most to be employed; as a diamond, though it cannot be made, may be polished by art, and placed in such a situation, as to display that luster which before was buried among common stones. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Diamond quotes by Khalid Masood
#143. Time makes the carbon a diamond. #Quote by Khalid Masood
Diamond quotes by Jared Diamond
#144. Infectious diseases introduced with Europeans, like smallpox and measles, spread from one Indian tribe to another, far in advance of Europeans themselves, and killed an estimated 95% of the New World's Indian population. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Diamond quotes by Drew Hunt
#145. Old lady Patterson is a real tightwad." Raising his voice

Diamond quotes by Neil Diamond

Diamond quotes by Ruth Wind
#147. He danced the way he made love, with passion and tenderness and spirit, communicating with hands and eyes the most subtle messages, tenderly making up for Lila's awkwardness. In his lashes and his hair, mist clung in tiny diamond drops. She could not take her eyes from him. #Quote by Ruth Wind
Diamond quotes by Lisa Diamond

Diamond quotes by Vashti Bunyan
#149. All the new songs have been written since the re-issue of Diamond Day. With my first royalties I got a Mac and a little mixer and a keyboard, figured out the basics of a music program, and gradually started to write and record the songs and the arrangements. #Quote by Vashti Bunyan

#152. Stand-up in general is the most raw form of entertainment. There is no pyrotechnics or back-up dancers, it's just live and die by your jokes, that's it. #Quote by Dustin Diamond
Diamond quotes by Emily McKee
#153. The ring is simple with a diamond and a plain gold band but it symbolizes our time together. We have been on a roller coaster ride this entire year and I think we deserve some simplicity. That's what this ring is because asking you to marry me is the simplest thing ever.
I had an idea forever ago for you to move in with me and it's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I thought I knew all there was to know about life and then you ran into mine. The second I saw you I knew one day you were going to be Mrs. Mitchell. Before I had time to think or breathe all of the pieces were falling together and now we're here. And as simple as taking my next breath I can say that I want you forever. So Isabelle Katherine Clark . . . Will you marry me? #Quote by Emily McKee
Diamond quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#154. Little lies are very dangerous, because there are so many of them, and because each one of them scours upon the character as diamond-pointed. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Diamond quotes by A.S. Peterson
#155. She dove, plunging fully beneath the surface and came up again in tears. Rivulets ran from her face, and the sun ignited them each, transforming them, even amid her sorrow, into gilded runnels set with a diamond shine. #Quote by A.S. Peterson
Diamond quotes by Delaney Diamond
#156. Intuitively, she sensed Leonardo's gaze on her, and she caught sight of him near the entrance to the balcony. He was watching her, though he should have been engrossed in the conversation with the two other people with whom he was standing, one of which was the redhead. Even from that distance across the room, she could sense his desire for her, and there was an answering pounding of the blood in her veins as their gazes locked.

Maybe it was the kiss between Russell and Joan and the romantic notion of long-lasting love, but Alexa found her thoughts straying to memories of sharing passionate kisses with Leonardo. She carefully placed her glass of wine on the table before it slipped from her damp fingers and crashed onto the expensive white carpet. She felt nervous and jittery because she knew the reason for Leonardo's smoldering scrutiny. She was fully aware of what was expected of her, and she found herself breathlessly anticipating the end of the evening. #Quote by Delaney Diamond
Diamond quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#157. Time is more precious than gold, more precious than diamonds, more precious than oil or any valuable treasures. It is time that we do not have enough of; it is time that causes the war within our hearts, and so we must spend it wisely. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Diamond quotes by Anthony Liccione

Diamond quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#159. The problem is I got a lot of brains but no polish

Tryin' to reach my goal. My power of speech: unimpeachable #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Diamond quotes by Diamond Mike Watson

#162. My wedding was at home, so I didn't really want to wear a veil in my house. Instead I wore a lot of diamond hair clips. They were brooches, actually, designed by Lorraine Schwartz. #Quote by Georgina Chapman
Diamond quotes by Carlo Collodi
#163. Today at school I will learn to read at once; then tomorrow I will begin to write, and the day after tomorrow to cipher. Then with my acquirements I will earn a great deal of money, and with the first money I have in my pocket I will immediately buy for my papa a beautiful new cloth coat. But what am I saying? Cloth, indeed! It shall be all made of gold and silver, and it shall have diamond buttons. That poor man really deserves it; for to buy me books and to have me taught he has remained in his shirt sleeves ... And in this cold! It is only fathers who are capable of such sacrifices! ... #Quote by Carlo Collodi

Diamond quotes by Timothy Keller
#168. Jesus lost all his glory so that we could be clothed in it. He was shut out so we could get access. He was bound, nailed, so that we could be free. He was cast out so we could approach. And Jesus took away the only kind of suffering that can really destroy you: that is being cast away from God. He took so that now all suffering that comes into your life will only make you great. A lump of coal under pressure becomes a diamond. And the suffering of a person in Christ only turns you into somebody gorgeous. #Quote by Timothy Keller

Diamond quotes by Rumi
#174. YOU MUSTN'T BE AFRAID OF DEATH
you're a deathless soul
you can't be kept in a dark grave
you're filled with God's glow
be happy with your beloved
you can't find any better
the world will shimmer
because of the diamond you hold
when your heart is immersed
in this blissful love
you can easily endure
any bitter face around
in the absence of malice
there is nothing but
happiness and good times
don't dwell in sorrow my friend
ghazal number 2594 #Quote by Rumi

Diamond quotes by Kate Winslet
#176. I need to be looked after. I'm not talking about diamond rings and nice restaurants and fancy stuff - in fact, that makes me uncomfortable. I didn't grow up with it, and it's not me, you know. But I need someone to say to me, 'Shall I run you a bath?' or 'Let's go to the pub, just us.' #Quote by Kate Winslet

Diamond quotes by William Goldman
#181. Writing is finally about one thing: going into a room alone and doing it. Putting words on paper that have never been there in quite that way before. And although you are physically by yourself, the haunting Demon never leaves you, that Demon being the knowledge of your own terrible limitations, your hopeless inadequacy, the impossibility of ever getting it right. No matter how diamond-bright your ideas are dancing in your brain, on paper they are earthbound. #Quote by William Goldman
Diamond quotes by Lou Diamond Phillips
#182. Hollywood will put you in a box, so to speak. Some people will have seen you in 'La Bamba' or another dramatic film and think, 'Okay, that's what Lou does.' But they don't really have an idea of the range or diversity that I can bring to a project. #Quote by Lou Diamond Phillips
Diamond quotes by Jason Diamond
#183. I lived through those books, songs, television shows, and movies - the way the characters talked, looked, acted. I thought that could translate over into reality, that I could make their world my world. I wanted so badly to run away from my life. But you can't bury yourself in other people's pages and scenes. You aren't David Copperfield or Tom Sawyer. Those love songs on the radio might speak to you, but they're not about you or the person you pine for. Life is not a John Hughes film. #Quote by Jason Diamond
Diamond quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#184. The sun shines equally on diamond and charcoal, but the former has developed qualities that enable it to reflect the sunlight brilliantly, while the latter is unable to reflect the sunlight. Emulate the diamond in your dealings with people. Brightly reflect the light of God's love. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Diamond quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri

Diamond quotes by Pearl Zhu

Diamond quotes by Andrew Harvey
#188. There are no solutions to life, but there is an experience of wholeness, of bliss, of being, of the deathlessness of the Divine Self, of Silence in all its multifacted, diamond splendor that heals all grief, all wounds, all questions. #Quote by Andrew Harvey

Diamond quotes by Judith McNaught
#191. His coach drew up before the Duke of Stanhope's town house, and Ian walked swiftly up the front steps, almost knocking poor Ormsley, who opened the door, off his feet in his haste to get to his grandfather upstairs. A few minutes later he strode back down and into the library, where he flung himself into a chair, his eyes riveted on the clock. Upstairs the household was in an uproar as the duke called for his valet, his butler, and his footmen. Unlike Ian, however, the duke was ecstatic. "Ormsley, Ian needs me!" the duke said happily, stripping off his jacket and pulling off his neckcloth. "He walked right in here and said it."
Ormsley beamed. "He did indeed, your grace."
"I feel twenty years younger."
Ormsley nodded. "This is a very great day."
"What in hell is keeping Anderson? I need a shave. I want evening clothes-black, I think-a diamond stickpin and diamond studs. Stop thrusting that cane at me, man."
"You shouldn't overly exert yourself, your grace."
"Ormsley," said the duke as he walked over to an armoire and flung the doors open, "if you think I'm going to be leaning on that damned cane on the greatest night of my life, you're out of your mind. I'll walk in there beside my grandson unaided, thank you very much. Where the devil is Anderson? #Quote by Judith McNaught
Diamond quotes by Michelle Madow

Diamond quotes by Jane Porter
#193. Virtue, without the graces, is like a rich diamond unpolished
it hardly looks better than a common pebble; but when the hand of the master rubs off the roughness, and forms the sides into a thousand brilliant surfaces, it is then that we acknowledge its worth, admire its beauty, and long to wear it in our bosoms. #Quote by Jane Porter
Diamond quotes by Erin Kellison
#194. He gaped at her. "You want me to wear it?"
"Yes. That's what a chain of diamond is for ... Wear it. Wear it all the time, even when you sleep. I need you to wear it. I got it for you."
"You've had it for twenty years." At least.
"I was trying it on. #Quote by Erin Kellison
Diamond quotes by Thomas Keneally
#195. If Frau Rasch, in the last and fullest days of her husband's power in Brno, had idly - during a party, say; a musical recital at the castle - gazed into the core of the diamond that had come to her from Oskar Schindler, she would have seen reflected there the worst incubus from her own dreams and her Führer's. An armed Marxist Jew. #Quote by Thomas Keneally
Diamond quotes by Awdhesh Singh
#196. It is not enough to only discover your potential. Your potential, at best, is like a rock from which the statue is yet to be carved. A rock of raw diamond can't be used to make rings and the dust of gold is useless for all practical purposes. Only by honing your skill through hard work, you can develop your potential and achieve happiness and success in your life. #Quote by Awdhesh Singh
Diamond quotes by Michael Caine
#197. People say to me, why did you do those films, and I say, for money. It wasn't for diamond rings or kidney shaped swimming pools in Beverly Hills, it was in order to improve the lot of everyone around me. #Quote by Michael Caine
