Downhill Uphill quotes by Margaret Mahy
#1. When, suddenly, on an ordinary Wednesday, it seemed to Barney that the world tilted and ran downhill in all directions, he knew he was about to be haunted again. #Quote by Margaret Mahy
Downhill Uphill quotes by Hermann Hesse
#2. The weeks up there were almost the most beautiful in my life. I breathed the pure, clear air, drank the icy water from streams and watched the herds of goats grazing on the steep slopes, guarded by dark-haired, musing goatherds. At times I heard storms resound through the valley and saw mists and clouds at unusually close quarters. In the clefts of rocks I observed the small, delicate, bright coloured flowers and the many wonderful mosses, and on clear days I used to like to walk uphill for an hour until I could see the clearly outlined distant peaks of high mountains, their blue silhouettes, and white, sparkling snow fields across the other side of the hill. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Downhill Uphill quotes by Libba Bray
#3. The wind swoops over the tenements on Orchard Street, where some of those starry-eyed dreams have died and yet other dreams are being born into squalor and poverty, an uphill climb. It gives a slap to the laundry stretched on lines between tenements, over dirty, broken streets where, even at this hour, hungry children scour the bins for food. The wind has existed forever. It has seen much in this country of dreams and soap ads, old horrors and bloodshed. It has played mute witness to its burning witches, and has walked along a Trail of Tears; it has seen the slave ships release their human cargo, blinking and afraid, into the ports, their only possession a grief they can never lose. #Quote by Libba Bray
Downhill Uphill quotes by Peter S. Beagle
#4. So I had something to do, something I'd done, someplace to go, and something to look forward to. That's a reasonable way to live. I enjoyed myself living. I had a good time. How much else can you ask for?"
"A lot more," Laura said softly, "if you're greedy. I was greedy once."
"So was I, but that was a long time ago. You're greediest when you're born, and after that it's downhill all the way. Live to be two hundred and you wouldn't demand anything. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
Downhill Uphill quotes by David Mathis
#5. The waters of good preaching are always running downhill to the stream of Christ, who he is, and how he has loved us. #Quote by David Mathis
Downhill Uphill quotes by Ernst Junger
#6. It is no coincidence that precisely when things started going downhill with the gods, politics gained its bliss-making character. There would be no reason for objecting to this, since the gods, too were not exactly fair. But at least people saw temples instead of termite architecture. Bliss is drawing closer; it is no longer in the afterlife, it will come, though not momentarily, sooner or later in the here and now - in time.
The anarch thinks more primitively; he refuses to give up any of his happiness. "Make thyself happy" is his basic law. It his response to the "Know thyself" at the temple of Apollo in Delphi. These two maxims complement each other; we must know our happiness and our measure. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Downhill Uphill quotes by Anthony Licata
#7. The giant deer took a leap to the downhill side, and then high-stepped around and past me, walking, not running, as if having known all along what decision I would make during this most perfect of days in one of the most perfect seasons, and situated perfectly and halfway between who I used to be and who I was on my way to becoming. #Quote by Anthony Licata
Downhill Uphill quotes by Marisha Pessl
#8. I took a step inside to get a better look and realized the man was actually Christ, the way he appeared in Sunday-school classrooms: milky complexion, starched blue dressing gown, a beard trimmed as painstakingly as a bonsai tree. He was doing what he was always doing: cupping blinding light in his hands like he was trying to warm up after a long day of downhill skiing. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Downhill Uphill quotes by Carolyn McCarthy
#9. With my history, unfortunately, with my family suffering through gun violence, it's something that I feel passionately about, that even though the odds are certainly always uphill, that doesn't mean that I will stop fighting to try to change that. #Quote by Carolyn McCarthy
Downhill Uphill quotes by Thomas Sadoski
#10. Working on 'Newsroom' has given me an appreciation of the struggle that you go through on the 24-hour news cycle. The people who are legitimately attempting to deliver honest news are really facing a tough, uphill climb that's a lot harder than any other time in history. #Quote by Thomas Sadoski
Downhill Uphill quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#11. Our work for human dignity is often lonely, and almost always an uphill climb. At times, our efforts are misunderstood, and we are mistaken for the enemy. There has been a clear erosion of respect for U.N. blue and our impartiality. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Downhill Uphill quotes by Billy Graham
#12. Man is not growing better! Man is not climbing upward. Instead of progress in man himself there is degeneracy - degeneracy of body, mind, and spirit. Man is going downhill. #Quote by Billy Graham
Downhill Uphill quotes by Dave Ramsey
#13. This is not a game, ... Debt has become a part of who we are. It's become that spoiled child in the grocery store with their lip stuck out: 'I want it. I want it. I deserve it because I breathe air.' And, well, that's an uphill climb in our culture right now, to go against that and say, 'Hey, let's be grownups here. Let's be mature, learn to delay pleasure, save up and pay for things.' #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Downhill Uphill quotes by Mike Royer
#14. In most companies, the corporate mentality is if you're over 30, you're on the downhill side, and if you're over 40, you're brain dead. Or, if you're over 30 or 40 and you've been doing it for a while, you've got experience and you want to be paid for that experience. #Quote by Mike Royer
Downhill Uphill quotes by Emily Giffin
#15. Nothing about my life is lucky - it's all about hard work, it is all an uphill struggle. #Quote by Emily Giffin
Downhill Uphill quotes by Edward Abbey
#16. Beyond the wall of the unreal city ... there is another world waiting for you. It is the old true world of the deserts, the mountains, the forests, the islands, the shores, the open plains. Go there. Be there. Walk gently and quietly deep within it. And then
May your trails be dim, lonesome, stony, narrow, winding and only slightly uphill. May the wind bring rain for the slickrock potholes fourteen miles on the other side of yonder blue ridge. May God's dog serenade your campfire, may the rattlesnake and the screech owl amuse your reverie, may the Great Sun dazzle your eyes by day and the Great Bear watch over you by night. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Downhill Uphill quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#17. So we are nearing the end. The right-hand, still untasted part of the novel, which, during our delectable reading, we would lightly feel, mechanically testing whether there was still plenty left (and our fingers were always gladdened by the placid, faithful thickness) has suddenly, for no reason at all, become quite meager: a few minutes of quick reading, already downhill, and–O horrible! The heap of cherries, whose mass had seemed to us such a ruddy and glossy black, had suddenly become discrete drupes: the one over there with the scar is a little rotten, and this one has shriveled and dried up around its stone (and the very last one is inevitably hard and unripe) O horrible! #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Downhill Uphill quotes by Francis Spufford
#18. ...for a piece of famous fluffiness that doesn't just pretend about what real lives can be like, but moves on into one of the world's least convincing pretences about what people themselves are like, consider the teased and coiffed nylon monument that is 'Imagine': surely the My Little Pony of philosophical statements. John and Yoko all in white, John at the white piano, John drifting through the white rooms of a white mansion, and all the while the sweet drivel flowing. Imagine there's no heaven. Imagine there's no hell. Imagine all the people, living life in - hello? Excuse me? Take religion out of the picture, and everybody spontaneously starts living life in peace? I don't know about you, but in my experience peace is not the default state of human beings, any more than having an apartment the size of Joey and Chandler's is. Peace is not the state of being we return to, like water running downhill, whenever there's nothing external to perturb us. Peace between people is an achievement, a state of affairs we put together effortfully in the face of competing interests, and primate dominance dynamics, and our evolved tendency to cease our sympathies at the boundaries of our tribe. #Quote by Francis Spufford
Downhill Uphill quotes by Carl Hart
#19. Looking at the data and at my drug use and evaluating it carefully just let me see that I wasn't special, but my drug use challenged what I thought about cocaine. Because I would accept when I would say, "What happened to that person?" and someone would say, "They started using cocaine ... they went downhill ... " I would just accept that, even though I had a different experience and all these other people had a different experience. But I would throw that out because I thought my experience was an aberration. #Quote by Carl Hart
Downhill Uphill quotes by Justin Bog
#20. I don't correct her to let her know her backdoor wisdom yanks me deep into another country, where water runs uphill. #Quote by Justin Bog
Downhill Uphill quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#21. The way downhill, into the bottomless incredulity which is despair, was incandescent with flowering chestnut trees. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Downhill Uphill quotes by Amy Lee
#22. Every time a cool rock chick or actress seems to respect themselves as a strong woman, I'm like, 'Yeah!' And I love them, and they're my girls. And then they start to go downhill and people aren't paying attention anymore. So they start stripping their clothes off, because that's all they have left. I swear to everything I've ever known, I will never do that #Quote by Amy Lee
Downhill Uphill quotes by Miley Cyrus
#23. There's always gonna be another mountain, I'm always gonna wanna make it move, Always gonna be a uphill battle, Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose, Ain't about how fast I get there, Ain't about what's waiting on the other side, It's the climb #Quote by Miley Cyrus
Downhill Uphill quotes by Amy Chua
#24. Because come to think of it, I think those were great choices we made too, even though all those people worried that you and Sophia would be permanently damaged psychologically. And you know, the more i think about it, the madder I am getting. All these Western parents with the same party line about what's good for children and what's not-I am not sure that they are making choices at all. They just do what every one else does. They are not questioning anything either, which is what Westerners are supposed to be so good at doing. They just keep repeating things like "You have to give your children the freedom to pursue their passion" when it is obvious that the "passion" is just going to be Facebook for ten hours which is a total waste of time and eating all that disgusting junk food - I am telling you this country is going to go straight downhill. #Quote by Amy Chua
Downhill Uphill quotes by Elton John
#25. But until we get rid of that shame, then people are going to stay underground, they are not going to get tested, and we're facing an uphill battle [with AIDS]. #Quote by Elton John
Downhill Uphill quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#26. But one way or another competing and weeding takes place ... or a race goes downhill. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Downhill Uphill quotes by Shannon Messenger
#27. Which is the main reason I refuse to let Isaac drag me out tonight for another one of his disastrous fix-ups.
There's another reason I don't like to date - but I'm trying not to think about her.
"Come on, man," Isaac whines. It's the third time he's called me in twenty minutes. "I promise it won't be like last time."
By "last time" he means when he hooked me up with Stacey Perkins. Apparently she's a vegan - which is cool. Her choice. But nobody told me until after I brought her to Outback Steakhouse. Then she asked the waitress if they had any "cruelty free" items on the menu.
Things only went downhill from there. Especially when I still ordered a steak. There are few things worse than an irritated vegan. #Quote by Shannon Messenger
Downhill Uphill quotes by Deborah Mitford
#28. In extreme old age you suddenly find you are unable to run uphill, two buckets full of hen food are heavier than they were and the cheerful scream of hearing aids, provided they are working, is a welcome sound. Other things go wrong. Paddy Leigh Fermor, aged ninety-four came to stay, got into the bath, looked down at the tap end and to his dismay saw that both feet had turned black. 'Oh God,' he thought, 'Teeth, ears and eyes are wonky and now my feet.' He need not have worried. he had got into the bath with his socks on. #Quote by Deborah Mitford
Downhill Uphill quotes by Roger Crawford
#29. You can t coast uphill. #Quote by Roger Crawford
Downhill Uphill quotes by Laura McNeal
#30. I had reached the end if the trail and the dead end of Willow Glen Road, which meant I had a long way to go, most of it uphill. I heard a bicycle, and because sometimes the world gives you what you want, the bicycle that streaked into view held Amiel. #Quote by Laura McNeal
Downhill Uphill quotes by Evan Currie
#31. Communism worked great, up to maybe four dozen people. Libertarianism was a bit better and could handle thousands before it started to fall apart. Capitalism worked best on scale, but it too began to implode once you moved close to the billion mark or so and began to factor in multiple local governments. Socialism always sucked and tended to work like a glacier moving uphill, but it worked at pretty much every scale in the same way. It was reliable, even if you could only rely on it to piss you off and barely get anything done. #Quote by Evan Currie
Downhill Uphill quotes by Glenn Turner
#32. I keep trying to bring a more professional approach to New Zealand cricket. It's an uphill battle. I stay in the game because I find it intriguing and interesting. I'm not interested in coaching international sides. I don't mind short-term coaching. I don't want to get involved in the politics of teams. #Quote by Glenn Turner
Downhill Uphill quotes by Gonzalo Fernandez De La Mora
#33. Hiding behind such sacred terms as human rights and distributive justice, politicians and intellectuals alike have perpetrated a gargantuan ruse on humankind: they have convinced us that mass homogeneity is more essential for the betterment of society than is individual initiative, and they have adorned this dubious assumption with assurances that by leveling all distinctions between human beings, collective peace and unity will result as a matter of course, just as water runs downhill or the cart follows the ox. #Quote by Gonzalo Fernandez De La Mora
Downhill Uphill quotes by Richard Bach
#34. If we want to end this lifetime higher than we began, we can expect an uphill road. #Quote by Richard Bach
Downhill Uphill quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#35. Don't quit.
When your latest efforts fail, don't quit. When your performance is scoffed and ridiculed, don't quit. When you're told you have no talent, don't quit. When you come in dead last, don't quit. When it seems an uphill fight to keep going, don't quit. When you can't see any possible way to achieve your goals, don't quit. When your last supporter is you alone, don't quit. When discouragement and depression seem your constant companion, don't quit. When you feel like quitting, don't quit.
Time and time again you will crave relief from the harsh fight of trying to succeed. You will falsely think that quitting will bring peace and reprieve, but alas, only regret and disappointment await the quitter. Victory means never ever ever quitting.
So don't quit.
Do not quit. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Downhill Uphill quotes by Dan Jenkins
#36. The recreational golfer who gives it careful thought will conclude that the favorite golf hole in his life played downhill, gradually or severely, and normally was downwind as well. #Quote by Dan Jenkins
Downhill Uphill quotes by Peter Steele
#37. I was fine, until I was born. And it's been downhill ever since. #Quote by Peter Steele
Downhill Uphill quotes by D.W. Griffith
#38. Everything went downhill after Lillian [Gish] left me. #Quote by D.W. Griffith
Downhill Uphill quotes by Julia Quinn
#39. I give in," she gasped. "What has turned your evening into such a dreadful affair?"
"What or whom?"
"' Whom'?" she echoed, tilting her head as she looked at him. "This grows even more interesting."
"I can think of any number of adjectives to describe all of the 'whoms' I have had the pleasure of meeting this evening, but 'interesting' is not one of them."
"Now, now," she chided, "don't be rude. I did see you chatting with my brothers, after all."
He nodded gallantly, tightening his hand slightly at her waist as they swung around in a graceful arc. "My apologies. The Bridgertons are, of course, excluded from my insults."
"We are all relieved, I'm sure."
Simon cracked a smile at her deadpan wit. "I live to make Bridgertons happy."
"Now that is a statement that may come back to haunt you," she chided. "But in all seriousness, what has you in such a dither? If your evening has gone that far downhill since our interlude with Nigel, you're in sad straits, indeed."
"How shall I put this," he mused, "so that I do not completely offend you?"
"Oh, go right ahead," she said blithely. "I promise not to be offended."
Simon grinned wickedly. "A statement that may come back to haunt you."
She blushed slightly. The color was barely noticeable in the shadowy candlelight, but Simon had been watching her closely.
She didn't say anything, however, so he added, "Very well, if you must know, I have been introduced to eve #Quote by Julia Quinn
Downhill Uphill quotes by Richard Dawkins
#40. Darwinism is not a theory of random chance. It is a theory of random mutation plus non-random cumulative natural selection ... Natural selection ... is a non-random force, pushing towards improvement ... Every generation has its Darwinian failures but every individual is descended only from previous generations' successful minorities ... [T]here can be no going downhill - species can't get worse as a prelude to getting better ... There may be more than one peak. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Downhill Uphill quotes by Peter Horton
#41. I just think age is meaningless. It's a system we've all agreed to that supposedly signals when we should develop, reach our peak and go downhill, as they say. It interferes with our natural growth. #Quote by Peter Horton
Downhill Uphill quotes by Stephan Labossiere
#42. However, when the circumstances in front of you are too overwhelming, you may turn around and run away. The battle appears to be all uphill and impossible and for what? You feel like the relationship holds no guarantee. Especially, if you've already been through a lot in your life, it may not seem worth it to fight through the chaos for the possibility of true love. #Quote by Stephan Labossiere
Downhill Uphill quotes by Veronica Rossi
#43. It's time, Perry. He let her go. She took a step back, taking in his face one last time. His green eyes. The bend in his nose and the scars on his cheek. All the tiny inperfections that made him beautiful. Without a word, she turned and made her way downhill. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Downhill Uphill quotes by Picabo Street
#44. Every once in a while I run the Olympic downhill in Japan in my head. I think of how the energy is going to flow and then I make it all work for myself. #Quote by Picabo Street
Downhill Uphill quotes by Debra Oswald
#45. From what Natalie could observe, by middle age, every person's life had rolled some distance downhill, even if it was a very gentle slope, coming to rest at a place of disappointment. Some spheres of an individual's life might have gone spectacularly well but there would always be an obstinate slab of disappointment in another department - a stalled career, inability to have kids, a dismal marriage, whatever. #Quote by Debra Oswald
Downhill Uphill quotes by Lauren Bacall
#46. There were times, sure, I wanted my career to go better. But once it starts to go downhill, you can never get back, or only to some degree. #Quote by Lauren Bacall
Downhill Uphill quotes by Chuck Aldridge
#47. shelter and uphill. I wasn't ready for that. Left at 8:30 this morning and pulled in at 3:30. I wish I had a hiking companion. It was nice hiking with Mary. I suspect I'll be at this site alone, after spending last night with over twenty people. Other than the pack weight, the weather makes one the biggest of the #Quote by Chuck Aldridge
Downhill Uphill quotes by Dallas Willard
#48. We were built to count, as water is made to run downhill. We are placed in a specific context to count in ways no one else does. That is our destiny. #Quote by Dallas Willard
Downhill Uphill quotes by James Patterson
#49. The instructor stared at me with cold, cut-me-no-slack determination, then got into a fighting stance, holding one hand out, beckoning me.
"I saw that movie too!"I said."It was like the coolest movie of all-"
He launched himself at me.
That was when his day really went downhill. #Quote by James Patterson
