Five Years quotes by William M. Daley
#1. I think the misconceptions, there are certain people that are fixed in those with those beliefs, and been in those for twenty-five years, you're not going to change them ... What you've got to do is basically talk to the future about what you want to with the country. #Quote by William M. Daley
Five Years quotes by Boots Riley
#2. When I was five years old, me and my cousin got into a fistfight because when "That's the Way (I Like It)" came on the radio, he said, "That's my song," and I said, "No, that's my song." #Quote by Boots Riley
Five Years quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#3. Five years ago your brother Lymond was found to have been selling his own country for years: he's been kicked from land to land committing every crime on the calendar and now he's back here, God forgive him, with filthier habits and a nastier mind than he set out with. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Five Years quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#4. God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Five Years quotes by Linda M. Godwin
#5. In the Astronaut Office we're never totally out of training, we always keep our hand in it. But after five years, things have changed and so it's been good to get back into the flow and relearn a lot of things. #Quote by Linda M. Godwin
Five Years quotes by Jodi Picoult

#8. So it took me five years because in the interim I have been doing a lot of personal appearances and movies and some television series that went into the plumbing and I stopped writing for a while. #Quote by Robert Klein
Five Years quotes by Justin Vernon
#9. The way I see it is that I grew up with a good set of values, but it was never too strict. I was always encouraged to be a free-thinking individual. I spent the first five years out of high school trying to make it work in Eau Claire, then I had to leave because there wasn't enough going on in town. #Quote by Justin Vernon
Five Years quotes by Lemony Snicket
#10. I recommend learning how to write a very good thank-you note. A child who can write a nice thank-you note can turn into a cocaine dealer five years later and be remembered as child who wrote nice thank-you notes. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Five Years quotes by Elton John
#11. I became successful and within five years conquered the world and had the most amazing run. I had so much momentum and adrenaline going, but then it ends and you have to find what level you're going to be on, how enthusiastic you're going to be. #Quote by Elton John
Five Years quotes by Erma Bombeck
#12. When it comes to cooking, five years ago I felt guilty "just adding water." Now I want to bang the tube against the countertop and have a five-course meal pop out. If it comes with plastic silverware and a plate that self-destructs, all the better. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Five Years quotes by Henry Ford
#13. I invented nothing new. I simply combined the inventions of others into a car. Had I worked fifty or ten or even five years before, I would have failed. #Quote by Henry Ford
Five Years quotes by Shepard Smith
#14. I like to cover news when it happens, not five years later. #Quote by Shepard Smith
Five Years quotes by Pratheepan Gulasekaram
#15. The 1790 Naturalization law determined that "free white persons" could naturalize after two years of residency, and established that the children of citizens would also be citizens. Soon after, in 1795, Congress extended the residency period to five years, and in 1798 extended the residency requirement even further, to fourteen years. #Quote by Pratheepan Gulasekaram
Five Years quotes by David Cook
#16. I spent a majority of my life in Kansas City, so I am a Chiefs and Royals guy. I used to work for the Royals for like five years in the suites department and in the stadium club restaurant. #Quote by David Cook
Five Years quotes by Clive Thompson
#17. There's nothing wrong with talking out loud in public, but there is something wrong with the government sucking up all those utter instances in a database just in case they maybe want to bust you in five years. #Quote by Clive Thompson
Five Years quotes by Temple Grandin
#18. Boys who cry can work for Google. Boys who trash computers cannot. I once was at a science conference, and I saw a NASA scientist who had just found out that his project was canceled - a project he'd worked on for years. He was maybe sixty-five years old, and you know what? He was crying. And I thought, Good for him. That's why he was able to reach retirement age working in a job he loved. #Quote by Temple Grandin
Five Years quotes by Christian Boltanski
#19. When I was four or five years old, I heard a lot of stories about the Holocaust because both my parents were survivors. I'm sure that was very important in my life. My father snuck out from under the floorboards to make love to my mother. I can't imagine why they kept me. #Quote by Christian Boltanski
Five Years quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#20. Anyone who says businessmen deal in facts, not fiction, has never read old five-year projections. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Five Years quotes by Steve Jobs
#21. Woz is living his own life now. He hasn't been around Apple for about five years. But what he did will go down in history. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Five Years quotes by Alison Goodman
#22. There was a saying that the strength of a man's steel was only known under the hammer of circumstance. If anyone had asked me a few hours ago, I would have said that nearly five years of boyhood had hammered me into constant fear and excessive caution. But now I realised it had done the opposite. It had shaped me into someone who stepped forwards and reached for what she wanted. It was too late for me to tuck my hands behind my back and wait like a good woman. #Quote by Alison Goodman
Five Years quotes by William Adams
#23. In the end of five years I made supplication to the king to go out of this land, desiring to see my poor wife and children according to conscience and nature. #Quote by William Adams
Five Years quotes by Miranda Neville
#24. He'd kept his figure despite being past his first youth. Pretty good for nearly forty.
Who was she fooling? She knew quite well that he was thirty-five and a half, exactly five years older than she. Their birthdays were two days apart. It was absurd the way trivial facts lingered in the memory, facts as unimportant as what she had for dinner on Tuesday. Except that she couldn't remember last week's menu and she was annoyingly aware of Max Quinton's preference for lamb over beef, for apple tart over syllabub. He preferred Shakespeare to the modern poets, the country to the town. #Quote by Miranda Neville
Five Years quotes by Cassandra Danz
#25. The way to get a deciduous hedge for free is to ask a neighbor to let you take divisions from his shrubs. You can take ten or twenty sucker-like shoots with their roots attached before he will notice and start to feel like a sucker himself. Thank him profusely and suggest that you'd love to have him and the wife over to dinner sometime, but don't give a specific date. Perhaps in the winter, you might suggest, when there's not so much work to do in the yard.
... in about three to five years the little suckers will grow into an informal hedge whose height will depend on the type of shrub you have selected. I know three to five years is a long time when you're middle-aged and older. But what do you want? You've just glommed several hundred dollars' worth of shrubs for free, for heaven's sake. In three to five years your neighbor will have forgotten about that dinner, also. #Quote by Cassandra Danz
Five Years quotes by Bill Watterson
#26. I'd always enjoyed the comics more, and felt that as long as I was unemployed it would be a good chance to pursue that and see what response I could get from asyndicate, as I didn't have anything to lose at that point. So I drew up a comic strip - this was in 1980 - and sent it off and got rejected. I continued that for five years with different comic strip examples 'til finally Calvin and Hobbes came together. But it's been a long road. #Quote by Bill Watterson
Five Years quotes by Rick Yancey
#27. I got a very late start at fatherhood. I'm a late bloomer in general. It took me seven years to get through four years of college. I was five years away from 40 before I had a family, and I had never been around kids much at all. All of a sudden, I was around three boys all the time. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Five Years quotes by Gore Vidal
#28. By the end of World War II, we were the most powerful and least damaged of the great nations. We also had most of the money. America's hegemony lasted exactly five years. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Five Years quotes by Christian Hosoi
#29. I spent five years in prison, a free man for the first time in my whole life. #Quote by Christian Hosoi
Five Years quotes by Kristen Ashley
#30. Liar. You've loved me since I held your hand at your mother's memorial service when you were five years old. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Five Years quotes by Chelsea Handler
#31. I was the youngest of six kids, and my brothers and sisters were kind of a lot older than me. And the one sister that was, like, in a close age range - she was five years older than me. She was my closest sister in age, and she was a loser. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Five Years quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#32. There is nothing for me to be sour about. What you got to understand is that I'm a military man. We usually do my shift for four or five years and then you got to move on. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Five Years quotes by Maj Sjowall
#33. After five years of marriage their idea of a really pleasant evening was to be at home, alone, help each other make a good dinner and then sit for a long time and eat and drink and talk. #Quote by Maj Sjowall
Five Years quotes by Lou Dobbs
#34. We expect a horse race, ... The reality is that competition drives all innovation. Intel did nothing with its 386 chip for five years until AMD introduced its own version in 1991. #Quote by Lou Dobbs
Five Years quotes by Edouard Daladier
#35. If the blood of France and of Germany flows again, as it did twenty-five years ago, in a longer and even more murderous war, each of the two peoples will fight with confidence in its own victory, but the most certain victors will be the forces of destruction and barbarism. #Quote by Edouard Daladier
Five Years quotes by Mary Wesley
#36. My first husband would never make up his mind in less than five years, so I used to get him to think that whatever course of action needed to be taken was his idea. Then he'd go right ahead. #Quote by Mary Wesley
Five Years quotes by Charles Dickens
#37. No little Gradgrind had ever seen a face in the moon; it was up in the moon before it could speak distinctly. No little Gradgrind had ever learnt the silly jingle, Twinkle, twinkle, little star; how I wonder what you are! No little Gradgrind had ever known wonder on the subject, each little Gradgrind having at five years old dissected the Great Bear like a Professor Owen, and driven Charles's Wain like a locomotive engine-driver. No little Gradgrind had ever associated a cow in a field with that famous cow with the crumpled horn who tossed the dog who worried the cat who killed the rat who ate the malt, or with that yet more famous cow who swallowed Tom Thumb: it had never heard of those celebrities, and had only been introduced to a cow as a graminivorous ruminating quadruped with several stomachs. To #Quote by Charles Dickens
Five Years quotes by Joseph Grenny
#38. Most professionals progress until they reach an "acceptable" level, and then they plateau. Software engineers, for instance, usually stop progressing somewhere around five years after entering the workforce. Beyond this level of mediocrity, further improvements are not correlated to years of work in the field. #Quote by Joseph Grenny
Five Years quotes by Hanabusa Ikkei
#39. I thought to live
two centuries, or three-
yet here comes death
to me, a child
just eighty five years old #Quote by Hanabusa Ikkei
Five Years quotes by Richard Price
#40. Rocco was gripped with the panic he often experienced around her, around himself. He seemed to be both here now and simultaneously five years in the future looking back at this moment, at the loss of this moment. He was always sliding past the nowness of being with her, throwing himself at her like a cranked-up insincere clown for an exhausting fifteen minutes a day or getting cozy with booze in order to achieve the proper mood, and from the time she was born he had felt he was on his deathbed, remembering with regret how skittish and slippery his time with her had been. Had been, as if she were a hard thirty-seven and divorced instead of a two-year old baby, as if he were eighty-six and senile instead of forty-three and slightly overweight. #Quote by Richard Price
Five Years quotes by Rand Paul
#41. Well, let's be clear I'm the only one on the stage who actually has a five-year budget that balances. #Quote by Rand Paul
Five Years quotes by Larry Niven
#42. Johnny, did you ever hear of the Club of Rome?" Johnny had, but the audience would need reminding. "They were the people who did computer simulations to find out how long we could get along on our natural resources. Even with zero population growth - " "They tell us we're finished," Sharps broke in. "And that's stupid. We're only finished because they won't let us really use technology. They say we're running out of metals. There's more metal in one little asteroid than was mined all over the world in the last five years! And there are hundreds of thousands of asteroids. All we have to do is go get 'em." "Can we?" "You bet! Even with the technology we already have, we could do it. Johnny, out there in space it's raining soup, and we don't even know about soup bowls. #Quote by Larry Niven
Five Years quotes by Lindsey Kelk
#43. I was not going to waste any more tears on someone who had left me a note. I was not going to make myself sick over someone that thought five years could be written off in fewer than four sentences. I was not going to break my heart over someone who could break my heart and still think it was OK to take my toothpaste at the same time. I was done. #Quote by Lindsey Kelk
Five Years quotes by Phil Keoghan
#44. After more than twenty-five years in television, there are days when I feel like I'm just beginning, because I'm learning new things. I want to be better all the time. #Quote by Phil Keoghan
Five Years quotes by Heather Heffner
#45. We're only five years apart," I said defiantly. "If you look at some of those dysfunctional vampyre relationships, we're near normal. #Quote by Heather Heffner
Five Years quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#46. Today, names of screenwriters like Zoe Akins, Jeanie Macpherson, Beulah Marie Dix, Lenore Coffee, Anita Loos, June Mathis, Bess Meredyth, Jane Murfin, Adela Rogers St. Johns, Sonya Levien, and Salka Viertel are too often found only in the footnotes of Hollywood histories. But seventy years ago, they were highly paid, powerful players at the studios that churned out films at the rate of one a week. And for over twenty-five years, no writer was more sought after than Frances Marion; with her versatile pen and a caustic wit, she was a leading participant and witness to one of the most creative eras for women in American history. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Five Years quotes by Anna Kendrick
#47. I'm glad I got to do 'The Last Five Years' and 'Into the Woods,' which are both shows that I just don't think I could have the stamina to do them eight times a week. I just have so much respect for the women who do these vocal roles eight times a week. They're so challenging. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Five Years quotes by Brad Stone
#48. But then he offered this:
'The things that people are going to feel are still to come. The kind of impact this is going to have on our cities -ninety-five or ninety-eight percent of it is still yet to happen. What if I said there's still going to be no traffic in any major city in the U.S. in five years? #Quote by Brad Stone
Five Years quotes by S.A. David
#49. I've been twenty one years as a nurse, five years as a forensic nurse." Bunmi was seducing Asa into accepting a fact that her interrogations were professional and infallible "I've come across countless MOs of various rapists. Many a rapist seems to be cautious of AIDS so they coerce their victims into stripping and only for them to penetrate in between the thighs. #Quote by S.A. David
Five Years quotes by Michel Hazanavicius
#50. I chose the American ones, more or less the last five years of the silent era, because those are the ones that aged the best in the way they tell the story. One, it's about human beings with context. It's a very classical story with feelings, with laughter, melodrama and it really works, the good ones - Murnau's American movies, John Ford's Four Sons, King Vidor's The Crowd, or the (Josef) von Sternberg movies. You can watch it now and it still works. I mean they are really, really good pieces so this is where I tried to work. #Quote by Michel Hazanavicius
Five Years quotes by George R R Martin
#51. No sooner had the Flowering taken root, so to speak, than your people rushed back to their private chambers, unleashed their carnal lusts and parental urges, and began reproducing faster than ever. Mean family size is greater now than five years ago, by .0072 persons, and your average citizen becomes a parent sooner by .0102 years. #Quote by George R R Martin
Five Years quotes by Jimmy Carter
#52. The erosion of our confidence in the future is threating to destroy the Social and the Political fabric of America. The confidence that we have always had as a people, is not simply some romantic dream, or a proverb in a dusty book, that we read, just on the Fourth of July. It is the idea of which founded our nation and has guided us in our development as a people. Confidence in the future has supported everything else. We've always believed in a thing called, progress. We've always had a faith, that the days of our children, would be better than our own. Our people are losing that faith. For the first time in the history of our country, a majority of our people believe, that the next five years, will be worse than the past five years. We were taught that our armies were always invincible and our causes were always just, only to suffer the agony of Vietnam. We respected the presidency as a place of honor, until the shock of Watergate. We've got to stop crying and start sweating. Stop talking and start walking. Working together, with our common faith, we cannot fail. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Five Years quotes by Barry McGuire
#53. So gradually, and then I had an Italian roadster that I built, it took me five years to build it, it was stolen from me and stripped. I said, well maybe we should have another where we shouldn't steal from each other. #Quote by Barry McGuire
Five Years quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#54. You go to him for advice? He's only what? Five years old? I swear I own older sweaters. (Tory) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Five Years quotes by Wil S. Hylton
#55. Since losing his reelection in 2002, Barr has lost not only his power but also many of his friends. It doesn't help that after alienating nearly every Democrat with impeachment, he spent the next five years alienating his fellow Republicans - railing against the invasion of Iraq, the PATRIOT Act, and the Bush administration in general. #Quote by Wil S. Hylton
Five Years quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#56. You're getting better, my lady."
"Don't patronize me."
"No, really, Your Highness. When you started painting five years ago, I could never tell what it was you were trying to depict."
"And this is a painting of ."
Ashe paused. "A bowl of fruit?" he asked hopefully.
Sarene sighed in frustration.
"Beautifully - which is more than I can say for the painting." He paused for a
moment. "It's a horse, right?"
Sarene scowled.
"A house?" he asked.
"It is not a bowl of fruit either, my lord," Ashe said. "I already tried that."
"Well, she said it was one of the paintings in this room," Lukel said. "All we
have to do is keep guessing until we find the right one."
"Brilliant deduction, Master Lukel." Ashe said. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Five Years quotes by Ellie Goulding
#57. The only day I remember of my parents' marriage was the day my dad walked out. As I stood there at five years old, with my older sister and younger brother, I knew that he was gone. #Quote by Ellie Goulding
Five Years quotes by Alison Goodman
#58. I have never heard a lady say 'arse,'" the emperor said mildly.
"I haven't been a lady for long," I reminded him. A little demon–made of exhaustion and the emperors smile– pushed me into adding,"For five years I've been saying 'arse.' It's hard to stop saying 'arse' after that many years. I suppose I should stop saying 'arse,' since ladies don't say-"
"'Arse'," he finished for me.
I met his grin. #Quote by Alison Goodman
Five Years quotes by Shinichi Suzuki
#59. I am mentally preparing myself for the five-year-old mind. I want to come down to their physical limitations and up to their sense of wonder and awe. #Quote by Shinichi Suzuki
Five Years quotes by Hiroyuki Sanada
#60. I was a child actor, so when I started filming when I was five years old, it was a long time ago. #Quote by Hiroyuki Sanada
Five Years quotes by David Cassidy
#61. All I had done for five years was work 18 hours a day all over the world. I needed to step back and distance myself from it. #Quote by David Cassidy
Five Years quotes by John Katzman
#62. Americans have learned to trust free markets. Republican or Democrat, we believe the unimpeded exchange of goods and services will yield better solutions than five-year plans set by even the most well-meaning public servants. #Quote by John Katzman
Five Years quotes by Eric Alterman
#63. There are more people at Obama's table offering ideas than there were five years ago, but when it came to facing up to the Republicans' threat to force a double-dip recession if they didn't get their millionaires' tax cut, they still amounted to nothing. And therein lies our fundamental problem. #Quote by Eric Alterman
Five Years quotes by Kevin Durant
#64. I feel as though I've proved myself these last five years that I can be one of the top players in the league. #Quote by Kevin Durant
Five Years quotes by A.M. Homes
#65. I once jokingly told someone that every book is like a relationship. They're four or five years long - that's not so bad. They're serious. They demand a lot of attention. But I remember thinking that I wanted to have one with someone who's not so crazy and peculiar and demanding. #Quote by A.M. Homes
Five Years quotes by Matthew Dickson
#66. Job interview question: Q: Where do you see yourself five years from now?A: Well, five years from now I see myself being able to answer this question. #Quote by Matthew Dickson
Five Years quotes by Stephen King
#67. Should you go on, you will surely be disappointed, perhaps even heartbroken. I have one key left on my belt, but all it opens is that final door, the one marked. What's behind it won't improve your love-life, grow hair on your bald spot, or add five years to your natural span (not even five minutes). There is no such thing as a happy ending. I never met a single one to equal "Once upon a time."
Endings are heartless.
Ending is just another word for goodbye. #Quote by Stephen King
Five Years quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#68. I had a job interview at an insurance company once, and the lady said 'Where do you see yourself in five years?' I said, 'Celebrating the fifth year anniversary of you asking me this question!' #Quote by Mitch Hedberg
Five Years quotes by Mike Colter
#69. Sometimes you meet someone at an inopportune moment and it doesn't work out, but then you see them again five years later and you're in different places and it's a better time. #Quote by Mike Colter
Five Years quotes by Jennifer Johnston
#70. I had an emerald ring that my mother gave me four or five years before she died. She wore it always, I wore it always, and I have given it to my daughter, and she wears it always. This ring belonged originally to my great, great grandfather. It's well over 150 years old. #Quote by Jennifer Johnston
Five Years quotes by Phil Robertson
#71. Three, four, five years, we're out of here. You know what I'm saying? It's a TV show. This thing ain't gonna last forever. No way. #Quote by Phil Robertson
Five Years quotes by Alan Chains
#72. What is the next unit of time after milliseconds?"
"Correct. What is the next?"
"There you go," the professor revealed. "Computers and androids like Christmas operate on nanoseconds. A nanosecond to them is a precision unit like a millisecond to you and I. Now try to think what doing something for fifteen minutes is to them. A millisecond is one million nanoseconds. One second is one billion nanoseconds. A minute is sixty billion nanoseconds. Fifteen minutes equals to nine hundred billion nanoseconds. Multiply that by a million for scale - that's the disparity between a human precision unit and a computer precision unit we first talked about. What do you get? Nine hundred quadrillion nanoseconds. That is ten thousand four hundred seventeen days, one thousand four hundred eighty-eight weeks, three hundred forty-two months. That is twenty-eight point five years. Does that seem like ages to you or what?" (What constitutes "ages" to machines) #Quote by Alan Chains
Five Years quotes by P.W. Catanese
#73. It's a queer thing, growing up. The years pile up, Hap, but at the same time I'm still ever age I ever was. When we stood before those sea-giants, I felt five years old, awed and scared. When I see a pretty lady, I'm eighteen again! And when my bones remind me, I feel all of my sixty years. All those ages are still inside me, all at once. The years stack up like sediment, and the layers remain. #Quote by P.W. Catanese
Five Years quotes by J.K. Rowling
#74. How can I have hung round you for five years and not think girls are clever? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Five Years quotes by George DeValier
#75. The moment we met, I saw it. I saw you. You are such a wonderfully kind person, but you don't want anyone to know it. You have secret depths of passion that you hide within yourself out of fear. You love too deeply, but you try to deny it, because you know that the deeper you love, the more you hurt. Your heart is so fragile, which is why you keep it locked in an iron cage. But I am pretty sure that this cage has a lock. And if it takes me five years, or ten, or fifty… I am determined to find the key. Because I will never break something so precious, just to find out what is inside. I could give you a thousand words, and describe you a thousand ways. But in the end it is very simple. I want you because I love you. No one else. You are the only one. You are my only one."

"You'd wait that long?"

"Forever, mi corazón. #Quote by George DeValier

#76. A company that insures cellphones and other tech devices is expected to announce plans to open a service call center in Las Vegas that would provide up to 800 jobs within five years. #Quote by Anonymous
Five Years quotes by Pedro Pascal
#77. I just went to your typical public schools, and my dad would take us to the movies every week, or he'd buy scalped tickets to San Antonio Spurs games. I remember I was four or five years old and my parents, who were very young, took us to see The Police in Austin, and Iggy Pop opened. #Quote by Pedro Pascal
Five Years quotes by Joe Reyes
#78. They are as smart as they are ruthless. That's why they've been around for all five years. #Quote by Joe Reyes
Five Years quotes by Karl Pilkington
#79. If you'd have told me five years ago that I'd have done all this - two books, some television and everything - I'd panic, I'd be scared. #Quote by Karl Pilkington
Five Years quotes by Antony Beevor
#80. It was only after five years in the army, when I was having to do a very boring job in a very boring place, that I thought: 'Why not try writing a novel?' partly out of youthful arrogance and partly because there had been a long line of writers in my mother's family. #Quote by Antony Beevor
Five Years quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#81. Haven't I been worth five years' excellent gossip to you? Are you not all waiting agog to see me seize my sister-in-law by the hair? When I think of it, damn it, I'm a public benefactor. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Five Years quotes by Sara Baume
#82. The world is wrong. It took me twenty-five years to realise and now I don't think I can bear it any more. The world is wrong, and I am too small to fix it, too self-absorbed. #Quote by Sara Baume
Five Years quotes by Jesse Lauriston Livermore
#83. It took me five years to learn to play the game intelligently enough to make big money when I was right. #Quote by Jesse Lauriston Livermore
Five Years quotes by Jonathan Swift
#84. As soon as I entered the house, my wife took me in her arms, and kissed me; at which, having not been used to the touch of that odious animal for so many years, I fell into a swoon for almost an hour. At the time I am writing, it is five years since my last return to England. During the first year, I could not endure my wife or children in my presence; the very smell of them was intolerable; much less could I suffer them to eat in the same room. To this hour they dare not presume to touch my bread, or drink out of the same cup, neither was I ever able to let one of them take me by the hand. The first money I laid out was to buy two young stone-horses, which I keep in a good stable; and next to them, the groom is my greatest favourite, for I feel my spirits revived by the smell he contracts in the stable. My horses understand me tolerably well; I converse with them at least four hours every day. They are strangers to bridle or saddle; they live in great amity with me and friendship to each other. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Five Years quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#85. Maris smiled as he saw that day so clearly in his mind. He'd been pinned to the school wall by a bully who'd been pounding on him. Out of nowhere, this tiny little red-haired boy had come charging in like a hurricane. Barely five years old, Darling had been short for his age. But what he lacked in height, he made up for in ferocity. In no time at all, he'd beat the bully back and had him on the ground, crying for his mother. After making him swear he'd never even look at Maris again, Darling had stood up and come over to him. Forever proud and fierce, Darling had wiped the blood from his lips, then offered Maris his other hand. "Hi, I'm Darling Cruel. We should be friends." Maris had fallen in love instantly. And he'd been in love with Darling every day since. "You #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Five Years quotes by Candis Cayne
#86. I came out to my parents as gay, and then I realized, you know, four or five years later, that I wasn't really happy, no relationships were working, and there was something missing in my life, and you know, I was doing drag, performing and stuff, and I realized through that arc that I was much happier doing that. #Quote by Candis Cayne
Five Years quotes by Rebecca Yarros
#87. I'm twenty-five years old, trying to run a growing business, raise twins on my own, and in the middle of…" My hands flailed, motioning to everything on my desk "…cancer. I don't' have time to go chasing romance. I don't care how good-looking he is." Or how massive his arms were. None of that mattered. #Quote by Rebecca Yarros
Five Years quotes by Jennifer Damiano
#88. 'The Next Ten Minutes' from 'The Last Five Years' is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. #Quote by Jennifer Damiano
Five Years quotes by Tunku Abdul Rahman
#89. In the twenty-five years that have passed since the ending of the World War when the people of this country emerged from generations of humiliation under foreign occupation, we have accomplished much to our credit, overcome many difficulties and changed the course of our history. #Quote by Tunku Abdul Rahman
Five Years quotes by Lady Gaga
#90. Who's to say I'm not an entirely different person? Because I am. You have to understand, five years ago I was a waitress. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Five Years quotes by Abraham Robinson
#91. I've made it a policy to move every five years, either physically or in my research. #Quote by Abraham Robinson
Five Years quotes by Kim Karr
#92. That's why I left the bar five years ago, because I wanted what I shouldn't. I didn't care about anything else. I wasn't thinking about consequences, so I had to leave. #Quote by Kim Karr
Five Years quotes by James Fenton
#93. I've not been a prolific poet, and it always seemed to me to be a bad idea to feel that you had to produce in order to get ... credits. Production of a collection of poems every three years or every five years, or whatever, looks good, on paper. But it might not be good; it might be writing on a kind of automatic pilot. #Quote by James Fenton
Five Years quotes by John Hudson Tiner
#94. For five years Isaac had been working eighteen hours a day. #Quote by John Hudson Tiner
Five Years quotes by Shane Bauer
#95. CCA finds ways to minimize its obligation to provide adequate health care. At the out-of-state prisons where California ships some of its inmates, CCA will not accept any prisoners who are over sixty-five years old, have mental health issues, or serious conditions like HIV. The company's Idaho prison contract specified that the 'primary criteria' for screening incoming offenders was 'no chronic mental health or health care issues.' The contracts of some CCA prisons in Tennessee and Hawaii stipulate that the states will bear the cost of HIV treatment. Such exemptions allow CCA to tout its cost efficiency while taxpayers assume the medical expenses for the inmates the company won't take or treat. #Quote by Shane Bauer
Five Years quotes by Richard Branson
#96. We believe that within five years, 96 percent of British consumers will have access to the Internet, whether it be through a personal computer, a set-top box or a mobile phone. #Quote by Richard Branson
Five Years quotes by Ren Ng
#97. I don't remember the first picture I took, but I actually found a picture of myself on a trip back to my old family home in Malaysia. I'm five years old, sitting on the floor with the family camera in my hand. It was a film camera - not a DSLR - with a fixed lens and a nice manual zoom. #Quote by Ren Ng
Five Years quotes by Jonathan Banks
#98. Forty-five years since I made my first paycheck, and I'm telling you that 'Breaking Bad' is as good as it gets. #Quote by Jonathan Banks
Five Years quotes by Nathaniel Rateliff
#99. Roadrunner wanted to make Born in the Flood the next Nickelback, but I didn't want to be that. I didn't want to be a huge rock star playing songs I didn't like. I didn't want to be stuck playing 'Anthem,' the song everybody liked but I didn't want to put on the record, for the next five years. #Quote by Nathaniel Rateliff
Five Years quotes by Kimmy Gibbler
#100. We never clean at my house. We move in, trash the place for five years, then move out. #Quote by Kimmy Gibbler
Five Years quotes by Suzanne Gordon
#101. Today age segregation has passed all sane limits. Not only are fifteen-year-olds isolated from seventy-year-olds but social groups divide those in high school from those in junior high, and those who are twenty from those who are twenty-five. There are middle-middle-age groups, late-middle-age groups, and old-age groups - as though people with five years between them could not possibly have anything in common. #Quote by Suzanne Gordon
Five Years quotes by Anonymous
#102. I thought I had paid for everything. Not like the woman pays and pays and pays. No idea of retribution or punishment. Just exchange of values. You gave up something and got something else. Or you worked for something. You paid some way for everything that was any good. I paid my way into enough things that I liked, so that I had a good time. Either you paid by learning about them, or by experience, or by taking chances, or by money. Enjoying living was learning to get your money's worth and knowing when you had it. You could get your money's worth. The world was a good place to buy in. It seemed like a fine philosophy. In five years, I thought, it will seem just as silly as all the other fine philosophies I've had. #Quote by Anonymous
Five Years quotes by Fwah Storm
#103. You see, when I was growing up I watched my mother battle with cancer...she died when I was 15 after going through five years of treatment...and during all that time you could see that the treatment was like torture to her...It seemed like the doctors were pumping her full of chemicals just to prolong the when I saw the chance to make a difference, I was determined to get it right! #Quote by Fwah Storm
Five Years quotes by Susannah Grant
#104. Fairy tales were important to me. Aren't they for any kid? My sister says I spent a good five years of my youth convinced I would grow up to be a princess. #Quote by Susannah Grant
Five Years quotes by Jodie Sweetin
#105. I actually never auditioned for 'Full House.' I had done a guest appearance on 'Valerie' as the next door neighbor's niece, and from that I got into 'Full House.' I was only five years old, and I was on the show until I was 13. #Quote by Jodie Sweetin
Five Years quotes by Jenny Han
#106. Dear Peter,

I miss you. It's only been five days but I miss you like it's been five years. Maybe because I don't know if this is just it, if you and I will ever talk again. I mean I'm sure we'll say hi in chem class, or in the hallways, but will it ever be like it was? That's what makes me sad. I felt like I could say anything to you. I think you felt the same way. I hope you did.

So I'm just going to say anything to you right now, while I'm still feeling brave. What happened between us in the hot tub scared me. I know it was just a day in the life of Peter for you, but for me it meant a lot more, and that's what scared me. Not just what people were saying about it, and me, but that it happened at all. How easy it was, how much I liked it. I got scared and I took it out on you and for that I'm truly sorry.

And at the recital party, I'm sorry I didn't defend you to Josh. I should have. I know I owed you that much. I owed you that much and more. I still can't believe you came, and that you brought those fruitcake cookies. You looked cute in your sweater, by the way. I'm not saying that to butter you up. I mean it.

Sometimes I like you so much I can't stand it. It fills up inside me, all the way to the brim, and I feel like I could overflow. I like you so much I don't know what to do with it. My heart beats so fast when I know I'm going to see you again. And then, when you look at me the way you do, I feel like the luckiest girl in th #Quote by Jenny Han
Five Years quotes by Chris Matthews
#107. Five years from now, 10 years from now, there's going to be a huge Islamic population in the world, they're going to be nationalistic, they're going to be religious, and they're going to be militant. #Quote by Chris Matthews
Five Years quotes by Laura Riding
#108. A child should be allowed to take as long as she needs for knowing everything about herself, which is the same as learning to be herself. Even twenty-five years if necessary, or even forever. And it wouldn't matter if doing things got delayed, because nothing is really important but being oneself. #Quote by Laura Riding
Five Years quotes by Vivian Stanshall
#109. Five years ago I was a four-stone apology - today I am two separate gorillas. #Quote by Vivian Stanshall
Five Years quotes by Shakira
#110. I was five years old; I got addicted to being on stage. I felt like it was the most wonderful place on Earth, performing in front of an audience, who in this case were a bunch of classmates, kids my age. #Quote by Shakira
Five Years quotes by Peter Capaldi
#111. My parents didn't take me to the theatre to see Chekhov when I was growing up - we went to see 'Francie and Josie' once every five years. #Quote by Peter Capaldi
Five Years quotes by Bob Colacello
#112. I took photos from 1976 to when I left in 1993, primarily for Interview and a column I had called "Bob Colacello's Out" which Andy had conceived of. I've never taken a picture since, not even with my phone! It just felt too Andy Warhol to keep going around town taking photographs. And I never really thought of doing anything with them after I left the magazine until this great Art Director Sam Shahid about for or five years ago asked where all of the old photos were. #Quote by Bob Colacello
Five Years quotes by Peter Riegert
#113. I did 'Animal House' in 1978, then 'Local Hero' in 1983, and then in '88, 'Crossing Delancey.' And I realized that every three to five years, you need a big role to put you into the national psyche. #Quote by Peter Riegert
Five Years quotes by James Oakes
#114. Benjamin Fitzpatrick was admitted to the practice of law in Alabama in 1821. Within five years, having participated in some law suits regarding conflicting property claims among slaveholders, he had built up a clientele sufficiently broad to allow him to begin acquiring slaves. In 1826 Fitzpatrick purchased three slaves for a thousand dollars; in 1827 he bought a fifteen-year-old boy for four hundred dollars. The following year he spent over five hundred dollars on a seventeen-year-old girl and her six-month-old son, $975 on a sixteen-year-old girl along with a twelve-year-old mulatto and a nine-year-old boy. Later in 1828, he added a boy named Peter and a woman named Betsey #Quote by James Oakes

Five Years quotes by Latrell Sprewell
#116. Well I forgot how different it was because I've been here for about four or five years. It's a big load off my shoulders now. Now that I'm there, I'm like, man, I can breathe a little bit, you know? #Quote by Latrell Sprewell
Five Years quotes by Jim Hunt
#117. Who knows what technology will emerge in the next five years, let alone 20. Yet the education we provide our children now is supposed to last for decades. We cannot train them for jobs that do not even exist yet, but we can provide them with the minds and tools they'll need to adapt to our ever-changing set of circumstances. #Quote by Jim Hunt
Five Years quotes by David Bailey
#118. Instead of putting someone in prison for being a hooligan, give him a choice. He may have beaten someone up and he's got eight years, but tell him you can do eight years inside or spend five years in the Army. Put him in the Parachute Regiment, they'd soon sort him out. #Quote by David Bailey
Five Years quotes by Andy Warhol
#119. If you're traveling for five years or something like that, you're going somewhere. But five years are being used up, and you don't have to do anything. You just sit on the plane. That might make time go really fast. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Five Years quotes by Mark Salling
#120. I decided I wanted to be a musician when I saw the movie 'Amadeus' around 1987. I was five years old, so it was a good time to start piano lessons after seeing Tom Hulce who played Mozart play the harpsichord on his back with his hands crossed. Such a great movie to inspire a five-year-old. #Quote by Mark Salling
Five Years quotes by James Rothman
#121. I had five years of failure, really, before I had the first initial sign of success. #Quote by James Rothman
Five Years quotes by Elie Wiesel
#122. When did I learn the Bible? When I was four or five years old. It's still the pull of my childhood, a fascination with the vanished world, and I can find everything except that world. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Five Years quotes by Damon Galgut
#123. For the first five years of my life, things felt pretty good. A lot went wrong after that, family-wise. #Quote by Damon Galgut
Five Years quotes by Jana Kramer
#124. I was five years old, onstage singing 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' - a rock version - and I was always wanting to entertain. But the biggest thing for me is just country music has helped me get through the worst times of my life and the best times of my life. I want to give that back to people. #Quote by Jana Kramer
Five Years quotes by Jared Leto
#125. The idea that I would ever end up on David Letterman or Jay Leno is horrifying. I am such a freak in comparison to most other twenty-five-year-old guys. I have no idea what other people are thinking. I'm not really in touch. #Quote by Jared Leto
Five Years quotes by Azra T.
#126. I'm always soft for you, that's the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say 'come here, it's been too long, it felt like home with you. #Quote by Azra T.
Five Years quotes by Jay Leno

Five Years quotes by Pattie Mallette
#129. My dad abandoned me when I was about two years old. So, he wasn't around to protect me the way I needed to be protected. I started getting sexually abused from the time I was about five years old to the time I was ten. It really messed with my sense of self worth and my sense of all that was good with the world, almost. #Quote by Pattie Mallette
Five Years quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#130. I was a cannibal for twenty-five years. For the rest I have been a vegetarian. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Five Years quotes by Eric Hobsbawm
#131. So far as I am aware no leader of a party of the European left in the past twenty-five years has declared capitalism as such to be unacceptable as a system. The only public figure to do so unhesitatingly was Pope John Paul II. #Quote by Eric Hobsbawm
Five Years quotes by Matt Shea
#132. You know, we've been right on everything, haven't we? We told people about drones five years ago, didn't we? We told people about the NSA five years ago, didn't we? We told them about indefinite detention. We told them you can't come after the internet, that's unconstitutional. You can't do warrantless searches, that's unconstitutional. #Quote by Matt Shea

Five Years quotes by Tom Perrotta
#134. Unburdening, she'd told Laurie about a vision she'd had when she was four or five years old. Unable to sleep on Christmas Eve, she'd tiptoed downstairs and seen a fat bearded man standing in front of her family's tree, checking items off a list. He wasn't wearing a red suit - it was more like a blue bus driver's uniform - but she still recognized him as Santa Claus. She watched him for a while, then snuck back upstairs, her body filled with an ecstatic sense of wonder and confirmation. As a teenager, she convinced herself that the whole thing had been a dream, but it had seemed real at the time, so real that she reported it to her family the next morning as a simple fact. They still jokingly referred to it that way, as though it were a documented historical event - the Night Meg Saw Santa. #Quote by Tom Perrotta
Five Years quotes by James Altucher
#135. g) Time it takes to reinvent yourself: five years. Here's a description of the five years: Year One: You're flailing and reading everything and just starting to do. Year Two: You know who you need to talk to and network with. You're doing every day. You finally know what the Monopoly board looks like in your new endeavors. Year Three: You're good enough to start making money. It might not be a living yet. Year Four: You're making a good living, and you can quit your day job. Year Five: You're making wealth. Sometimes you get frustrated in years one through four. You say, "Why isn't it happening yet?" That's okay. Just keep going. Or stop and pick a new field. #Quote by James Altucher
Five Years quotes by T.J. Klune
#136. The big kid hasn't said anything yet. 'I do like hearing myself talk,' I say, 'only because I have a lot of neat things to say, but eventually the conversation will run out in, like, four or five years, and then where will we be?'
Wonder of all wonders, he cracks a little smile. I don't blame him. I am pretty funny. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Five Years quotes by Andre Reed
#137. A lot of times I go to the gym and I see people and they don't know how to work out. There's no routine or anything like that. I saw a guy who I haven't seen in five years and the guy looks the same as he did five years ago. #Quote by Andre Reed

Five Years quotes by Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah
#140. James Baldwin lived in this house for more than twenty-five years, and all that was left were half a dozen pink teacups and turquoise saucers buried by the house's rear wall, orange trees that were heavy with fruit, but the fruit was bitter and sharp to the taste. We see Baldwin's name in connection to the present condition more often than we see Faulkner's, Whitman's, or Thoreau's. We can visit houses and places where they lived and imagine how their geography shaped the authors and our collective vocabulary. By next year, Baldwin's house will just be another private memory for those who knew it. #Quote by Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah
Five Years quotes by Doreen Orion
#141. As Tim followed me up the narrow stairwell, he playfully pinched my butt with every step, a pleasant (and painful
in a black-and-blue sort of way) reminder that all I had yearned for as a student twenty-five years before had come true, even if I hadn't taken the time to notice it until now: I was happy. At twenty years old, had I articulated what I thought I needed in life, I would have probably said a big house, a successful husband, and a great career. Yet all I really needed for true happiness was the homeless, unemployed bus driver right behind me, pinching my butt every step of the way. #Quote by Doreen Orion
Five Years quotes by James Mattis
#142. You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling. #Quote by James Mattis
Five Years quotes by Stewart Brand
#143. Since the soon-to-be outnumber the living; since the living have greater impact on the unborn than ever before thanks to depletion of natural systems, atmospheric disruption, toxic residue, burgeoning technology, global markets, genetic engineering, and sheer population numbers; since our scientific and historic understandings now comfortably examine processes embracing eons; and now that our plan-ahead horizon has shrunk to five years or less - it would seem that a grave disconnect is in progress. Our everhastier decisions and actions do not respond to our long-term understanding, or to the gravity of responsibility we bear. "The #Quote by Stewart Brand

Five Years quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#145. Mrs. Allan's face was not the face of the girlbride whom the minister had brought to Avonlea five years before. It had lost some of its bloom and youthful curves, and there were fine, patient lines about eyes and mouth. A tiny grave in that very cemetery accounted for some of them; and some new ones had come during the recent illness, now happily over, of her little son. But Mrs. Allan's dimples were as sweet and sudden as ever, her eyes as clear and bright and true; and what her face lacked of girlish beauty was now more than atoned for in added tenderness and strength. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Five Years quotes by Billy Boyd
#146. Rather than thinking, 'If I do this, and in five years I'll be where I want to be,' you're better just doing something that makes you happy now. #Quote by Billy Boyd
Five Years quotes by Hiro Arikawa
#147. I get it. Having had Satoru take me in as his cat, I think I felt as lucky as he did. Strays, by definition, have been abandoned or left behind, but Satoru rescued me when I broke my leg. He made me the happiest cat on earth. I'll always remember those five years we had together. And I'll forever go by the name Nana, the name that - let's face it - is pretty unusual for a male cat. The town where Satoru grew up, too, I would remember that. And the green seedlings swaying in the fields. The sea, with its frighteningly loud roar. Mount Fuji, looming over us. How cosy it felt on top of that boxy TV. That wonderful lady cat, Momo. That nervy but earnest hound, Toramaru. That huge white ferry, which swallowed up cars into its stomach. The dogs in the pet holding area, wagging their tails at Satoru. That foul-mouthed chinchilla telling me Guddo rakku! The land in Hokkaido stretching out forever. Those vibrant purple and yellow flowers by the side of the road. The field of pampas grass like an ocean. The horses chomping on grass. The bright-red berries on the mountain-ash trees. The shades of red on the mountain ash that Satoru taught me. The stands of slender white birch. The graveyard, with its wide-open vista. The bouquet of flowers in rainbow colours. The white heart-shaped bottom of the deer. That huge, huge, huge double rainbow growing out of the ground. I would remember these for the rest of my life. And Kosuke, and Yoshimine, and Sugi and Chikako. And above all, the one who #Quote by Hiro Arikawa
Five Years quotes by Erin Kellison
#148. Oh, please, no. The tag was a six-moon survey permit for Encantada, a cluster world at the edge of the Han System. It was the kind of tag a xenobioform engineer would need among a crew exploring a new world. He'd seen one once before. Five years ago. When she had left him.
His balance faltered. Vision narrowed. The universe condensed to a name, printed above the tag code.
Mica Sol. Once his. Forever his only.
He could've killed her ... #Quote by Erin Kellison
Five Years quotes by John Fowles
#149. He stared to sea. I gave up all ideas of practicing medicine. In spite of what I have just said about the wave and the water, in those years in France I am afraid I lived a selfish life. That is, I offered myself every pleasure. I traveled a great deal. I lost some money dabbling in the theatre, but I made much more dabbling on the Bourse. I gained a great many amusing friends, some of whom are now quite famous. But I was never very happy. I suppose I was fortunate. It took me only five years to discover what some rich people never discover - that we all have a certain capacity for happiness and unhappiness. And that the economic hazards of life do not seriously affect it. #Quote by John Fowles
Five Years quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#150. Re-reading is much underrated. I've read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold once every five years since I was 15. I only started to understand it the third time. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Five Years quotes by Walter Isaacson
#151. While a student in McCollum's class, Jobs became friends with a graduate who was the teacher's all-time favorite and a school legend for his wizardry in the class. Stephen Wozniak, whose younger brother had been on a swim team with Jobs, was almost five years older than Jobs and far more knowledgeable about electronics. But emotionally and socially he was still a high school geek. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Five Years quotes by Carolyn See
#152. I used to worry about exclamation marks, but what the hell. Sometimes I feel some enthusiasm. So I put in an exclamation point. About five years ago, I began to question the whole concept of "improvement." I think I'm done being "improved." That's part of my prose style, and I'm certainly not going to change it now. And I may lose weight or get my wardrobe finally in order, but the chances on all that are low. "I yam what I yam," as Popeye says. #Quote by Carolyn See
Five Years quotes by Matt Haig
#153. There is a tree in California, a Great Basin bristlecone pine that was found, after an intensive ring count, to be five thousand and sixty-five years old.

Even to me, that pine seems old. In recent years, whenever I have despaired of my condition and needed to feel a bit more mortal and ordinary, I think of that tree in California. It has been alive since the Pharaohs. It has been alive since the found of Troy. Since the start of the Bronze Age. Since the start of yoga. Since mammoths.

And it has stayed there, calmly in its spot, growing slowly, producing leaves, losing leaves, producing more, as those mammoths became extinct,... the tree had always been the tree. #Quote by Matt Haig
Five Years quotes by William Stanley Jevons

Five Years quotes by Johnny Depp
#155. It's funny what [producer Richard Zanuck said about even though you can't quite place when the book or the story came into your life, and I do vaguely remember roughly five years old reading versions of Alice in Wonderland, but the thing is the characters. You always know the characters. Everyone knows the characters and they're very well-defined characters, which I always thought was fascinating. Most people who haven't read the book definitely know the characters and reference them. #Quote by Johnny Depp

Five Years quotes by Vin Diesel

Five Years quotes by Dan Eaton
#159. A man named Vicente Fox was sworn in as president of Mexico, ending seventy-five years of control by the Institutional Revolutionary Party. Across the border, the United States Supreme Court released its landmark decision in Bush v. Gore, deciding the 2000 presidential election and ensuring the term "hanging chad" took its place permanently in the English lexicon. Leninist guerrillas launched an attack in Istanbul, and a series of bombs exploded in downtown Manila, killing twenty-two people and injuring dozens more. Cambodia's failed coup slipped from network news bulletins, and the country returned once more to relative international obscurity. #Quote by Dan Eaton
Five Years quotes by Tate Donovan

Five Years quotes by Swati Avasthi
#163. But I'm not the one digging her grave; I didn't open her hole in the earth when I drove away that night or when I couldn't make her come with us. My dad dug it years ago; he forced her to lie down in it and kept her there by fear and beatings. And when she tried to get out, he stomped her back in. She has been lying there for twenty-five years. Her muscles have atrophied, her joints have stiffened, and she can't see anything except him and the tight little space she calls home. I don't know how she'll get out; I can tug and pull and yank, but it won't make any difference. She was right: she's gotta solve it her own way. #Quote by Swati Avasthi
Five Years quotes by Louis Farrakhan
#164. I am not the same man I was 35 years ago. And I hope that five years and ten years from now, I'll be a better man, a more mature man, a wiser man, a more humble man and a more spirited man to serve the good of my people and the good of humanity. #Quote by Louis Farrakhan
Five Years quotes by Saddam Hussein
#165. I like to call a spade a spade in politics and in everything else.
That's why the zionists and the americans ...
The top officials hate Saddam Hussein.
The White House is lying once again. He's a liar.
He's the world's number one liar.
He said there were chemical weapons in Iraq, and that Iraq is connected with terrorism.
Later he declared: 'We didn't find any of this in Iraq.'
What I want to say is that he also declared that what Saddam Hussein says is not true ...
This is defamation of your president of thirty five years. #Quote by Saddam Hussein

#167. Right after I graduated, my girlfriend, who I had been going out with for five years, dumped me, and my grandmother died. #Quote by Mike Gordon
Five Years quotes by Bernie Mac
#168. I was born October 5, 1957, on the South Side of Chicago, in the Woodlawn area, a neighborhood that hasn't changed much in forty-five years. Our house was on 66th and Blackstone, but the city tore it down when the rats took over. #Quote by Bernie Mac
Five Years quotes by Paula Wolfert
#169. When people ask me how I develop recipes, I have to respond: "travelling, eating, watching, experimenting, and constantly asking myself: 'Do I want to eat this dish again?'" Will I yearn for it some evening when I'm hungry? Will I remember it in six months' time? In a year? Five years from now? #Quote by Paula Wolfert
Five Years quotes by Ling  Ma
#170. What I didn't say was: I know you too well. You live your life too idealistically. You think it's possible to opt out of the system. No regular income, no health insurance. You quit jobs on a dime. You think this is freedom but I still see the bare, painstakingly cheap way you live, the scrimping and saving, and that is not freedom either. You move in circumscribed circles. You move peripherally, on the margins of everything, pirating movies and eating dollar slices. I used to admire this about you, how fervently you clung to your beliefs - I called it integrity - but five years of watching you live this way changed me. In this world, money is freedom. Opting out is not a real choice. #Quote by Ling Ma
Five Years quotes by Lewis Black
#171. My parents were married for sixty-five years, and I was married for about ten minutes, my first year at Yale Drama School. Something, somehow, didn't get passed on to my generation. #Quote by Lewis Black
Five Years quotes by Michela Wrong
#172. Keep your head down, think small, look after yourself: these constituted the lessons of Leopold. The spirit, once comprehensively crushed, does not recover easily. For seventy-five years, from 1885 to 1960, Congo's population had marinated in humiliation. No malevolent witch-doctor could have devised a better preparation for the coming of a second Great Dictator. #Quote by Michela Wrong
Five Years quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#173. I'm very picky when it comes to men. I come across a man who I'm really attracted to about once every five years. #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
Five Years quotes by Teri Hatcher
#174. I feel like I'm a stay-at-home mom, which I was for the five years before this. She's absolutely been my focus. That's the choice I made. Desperate Housewives is perfect for me. I get to go back to work and still be able to take my daughter to school and pick her up. #Quote by Teri Hatcher
Five Years quotes by Brian Tracy
#175. Decide how much you want to be earning one year, five years and ten years from today. What will you have to do to achieve these amounts. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Five Years quotes by Dana Carvey
#176. I used to sneak up to the 8th floor and watch Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo rehearsing 'Saturday Night Live' and could only wonder if I would ever have the chance to be funny. It took me five years to go up the two stories, but it is such a sense of fulfillment to be able to show what I can do on national television. #Quote by Dana Carvey
Five Years quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#177. The music was linked with almost everything I had done, none of the records came without a memory. Everything that had happened in the last five years rose like steam from a cup when I played a record, not in the form of thoughts or reasoning, but as moods, openings, space. Some general, others specific. If my memories were stacked in a heap on the back of my life's trailer, music was the rope that held them together and kept it, my life, in position. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Five Years quotes by John H. Lienhard
#178. Five hundred years ago a person in error was a person searching for the truth. #Quote by John H. Lienhard
Five Years quotes by Jennifer Granholm
#179. In five years, you're going to be blown away by the strength and diversity of Michigan's transformed economy. #Quote by Jennifer Granholm
Five Years quotes by Graeme Smith
#180. No one seriously disputes that today a woman in Afghanistan is less likely to die giving birth to a child, that the child is more likely to reach the age of five years old, and having reached the age of five that child is far more likely to have a chance to go to school. #Quote by Graeme Smith
Five Years quotes by Catherine Crier
#181. It has been a wonderful five years. I'm excited about the many projects we're working on as we move into year six, and I want to thank everyone for tuning in. We couldn't do it without you! #Quote by Catherine Crier
Five Years quotes by Russ Carnahan
#182. Five years of Republicans' failed energy policies have resulted in Americans paying twice as much at the pump as they did in 2001, while big oil companies make triple the profits. #Quote by Russ Carnahan
Five Years quotes by Laurent Fabius
#183. I want to make an extremely strong appeal to those who abstained. Vote. It takes five minutes and then it's for five years. #Quote by Laurent Fabius
Five Years quotes by Ian Fleming
#184. I was just running away from the person I'd been for the past five years. I wasn't particularly pleased with the person I was now, but I had hated and despised the other one, and I was glad to be rid of her face. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Five Years quotes by Martha Stout
#185. After listening for almost twenty-five years to the stories my patients tell me about sociopaths who have invaded and injured their lives, when I am asked, "How can I tell whom not to trust?" the answer I give usually surprises people. The natural expectation is that I will describe some sinister-sounding detail of behavior or snippet of body language or threatening use of language that is the subtle giveaway. Instead, I take people aback by assuring them that the tip-off is none of these things, for none of these things is reliably present. Rather, the best clue is, of all things, the pity play. The most reliable sign, the most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy. #Quote by Martha Stout
Five Years quotes by Jonah Lehrer
#186. In particular, Vaillant says, it is the experience of loving and being loved that most closely predicts how we react to the hardships of life; human attachments are the ultimate source of resilience. "The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points, at least to me, to a straightforward five-word conclusion," Vaillant writes. "'Happiness equals love. Full stop. #Quote by Jonah Lehrer
Five Years quotes by Patricia C. Wrede
#187. I loved getting my M. B. A., and I really enjoyed being an accountant and financial analyst before I quit my day job twenty-five years ago to write full time. I just liked writing more ... plus, I knew even then that as a full-time writer, I'd get plenty of chances to do business-type stuff, while as an accountant, I probably wouldn't get a lot of opportunities to write about dragons. #Quote by Patricia C. Wrede
Five Years quotes by Bob Hope
#188. I've been married fifty-five years and I've been home three weeks. #Quote by Bob Hope
Five Years quotes by Georges Perec
#189. This is your life. This is yours. You can establish an exact inventory of your meager fortune, the precise balance sheet of your first quarter-century. You are twenty-five years old, you have twenty-nine teeth, three shirts and eight socks, a few books you no longer read, a few records you no longer play. You do not want to remember anything else, be it your family or your studies, your friends and lovers, or your holidays and plans. You traveled and you brought nothing back from your travels. Here you sit, and you want only to wait, just to wait until there is nothing left to wait for: for night to fall and the passing hours to chime, for the days to slip away and the memories to fade. #Quote by Georges Perec
Five Years quotes by Anonymous
#190. 4Jonathan, the son of Saul, had a son who was crippled in his feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel, and his nurse took him up and fled, and as she fled in her haste, he fell and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth. #Quote by Anonymous
Five Years quotes by Jason Segel
#191. I did a show called 'Freaks and Geeks' when I was very young. And I had the naivete and arrogance of youth. You know, I really assumed that when the show got cancelled, like, oh, it doesn't matter, you just keep rolling, you know. I'm about to be the biggest star of the world. And then I was met with five years of unemployment. #Quote by Jason Segel
Five Years quotes by J.R. Ward
#192. I have peanut M&M's up there."
"Not my style"
"Sam Adams."
Thor narrowed his eyes. "Cold?"
"Downright icy."
Thor crossed his arms over his chest and told him self he was not pouting like a five-year-old. "I want Milk Duds. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Five Years quotes by Marco Rubio
#193. The terrorists that attacked us in San Bernardino was an American citizen, born and raised in this country. And I bet you we wish we would have had access to five years of his records so we could see who he was working with. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Five Years quotes by Victoria Lincoln
#194. We wasted little time wondering how anyone, even Lizzie, could nurse for five years a smoldering, mounting, murderous hate for anyone as uninteresting as Abby Borden ... we did, however, attach grave importance to Lizzie's 'peculiar spells. #Quote by Victoria Lincoln
Five Years quotes by Stevie Nicks
#195. I don't love the years going by. I'd just as soon stay forty-five. But it's OK because I feel a whole lot better than I did at thirty-five. #Quote by Stevie Nicks
Five Years quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#196. I'd been on the road for twenty-five years, pretty much. I was like a mouse on a wheel: album, tour, album, tour, album, tour, album, tour. #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Five Years quotes by James Reston
#197. In foreign policy you have to wait twenty-five years to see how it comes out. #Quote by James Reston

#199. Mr Daniels,
The answer to where I want to be in five years? Simple. With you. #Quote by Brittainy C. Cherry
Five Years quotes by The Modern Bowerbird: Tales Of A Bookshelf
#200. Through books we can time travel, play make-believe and even create our own intangible art using the words to paint complex and vivid images in our minds. Your own interpretations of what's on a page, like snowflakes or fingerprints, will never be the same as someone else's. And to me, that's the magic that books hold: Preserved in dried ink, on flattened paper, between two covers, that make up the endless world of possibilities lost in a page of carefully curated characters

The unread books that have been staring you in the face for the past five years that you swear you could have read, or books that took you years to read that evolved along with your life; those that were bought for you as gifts or those that you bought yourself as a treat after a testing semester at school. The books that remind you of someone you loved, the books you forgot to return to a friend, or the coffee table books you will likely never read, and be pleasantly surprised by their pages when they are opened for the first time by a visiting friend. #Quote by The Modern Bowerbird: Tales Of A Bookshelf
Five Years quotes by Amelie Mauresmo
#201. When I finished the juniors I felt, perhaps for about a year and a half, that everything was going to be the same and that I would be able to go out there and win any match. But it wasn't the case. I struggled. #Quote by Amelie Mauresmo
Five Years quotes by Steven Seagal
#202. I've been a police officer for over 20 years, and I've investigated murders and all kinds of different crimes. #Quote by Steven Seagal
Five Years quotes by Isaac Asimov
#203. One would suppose that the battle for religious liberty was won in the United States two hundred years ago. However, in the time since, and right now, powerful voices are always raised in favor of bigotry and thought control. It is useful, then, to have a compendium of the thoughts of great men and women of all faiths (and of none) on the subject, to convince us that we men and woman of freedom are not and never have been alone. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Five Years quotes by Gregory Benford
#204. In science fiction, basic doubts featured prominently in the worlds of Philip K. Dick. I knew Phil for 25 years, and he was always getting onto me, a scientist. He was a great fan of quantum uncertainty, epistemology in science, the lot. #Quote by Gregory Benford
Five Years quotes by Jenni Fagan
#205. As specimens go, they always get excited about me. I'm a good one. A show-stopper. I'm the kind of kid they'll still enquire about ten years later. Fifty-one placements, drug problems, violence, dead adopted mum, no biological links, constant offending. Tick, tick, tick. I lure them in to being with. Cultivate my specimen face. They like that. Do-gooders are vomit-worthy. Damaged goods are dangerous. The ones that are in it cos the thought it would be a step up from an office job are tedious. The ones who've been in too long lose it. The ones who think they've got the Jesus touch are fucking insane. The I can save you brigade are particularly radioactive. They think if you just inhale some of their middle-classism, then you'll be saved. #Quote by Jenni Fagan
Five Years quotes by Sebastian Coe
#206. I'm a Chelsea season-ticket holder, and I've supported them for 37 years, so any judgment of Manchester United by me is seen as biased. #Quote by Sebastian Coe
Five Years quotes by Frank Herbert
#207. When I was writing Dune there was no room in my mind for concerns about the book's success or failure. I was concerned only with the writing. Six years of research had preceded the day I sat down to put the story together, and the interweaving of the many plot layers I had planned required a degree of concentration I had never before experienced. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Five Years quotes by Robert Benchley
#208. It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous. #Quote by Robert Benchley
Five Years quotes by Patrick Modiano
#209. My wife's a lot younger than me ... thirty years difference ... You should never marry a woman a lot younger than you ... Never ... #Quote by Patrick Modiano
Five Years quotes by Josh Billings
#210. Threescore years and ten is enough; if a man can't suffer all the misery he wants in that time, he must be numb. #Quote by Josh Billings
Five Years quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#211. There in its nasty, stinking, underground home our insulted, crushed and ridiculed mouse promptly becomes absorbed in cold, malignant and, above all, everlasting spite. For forty years together it will remember its injury down to the smallest, most ignominious details, and every time will add, of itself, details still more ignominious, spitefully teasing and tormenting itself with its own imagination. It will itself be ashamed of its imaginings, but yet it will recall it all, it will go over and over every detail, it will invent unheard of things against itself, pretending that those things might happen, and will forgive nothing. Maybe it will begin to revenge itself, too, but, as it were, piecemeal, in trivial ways, from behind the stove, incognito, without believing either in its own right to vengeance, or in the success of its revenge, knowing that from all its efforts at revenge it will suffer a hundred times more than he on whom it revenges itself, while he, I daresay, will not even scratch himself. On its deathbed it will recall it all over again, with interest accumulated over all the years… #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Five Years quotes by Pamela Sargent
#212. Ancient Egyptians went to great lengths to avoid change; they couldn't entirely do so, of course, but did preserve a cultural continuity for almost four thousand years. #Quote by Pamela Sargent
Five Years quotes by Joan Rivers
#213. My mother told me 'man on top, woman underneath.' For years my husband & I slept in bunk beds. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Five Years quotes by H.M. Ward
#214. Life occurs in segments, little bursts of time setting us on a course. Our little boat floats out into vast waters, sailing along until a storm comes to knock us off course - or worse. How many people are floating around, lost? I'm not even sure I am floating anymore. It's more like I'm trying to break my boat free from years of rot after it's been filled with sediment and settled on the ocean floor. #Quote by H.M. Ward
Five Years quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#215. It is useful to compare the Branch Davidians with the Mormons of the mid-nineteenth century. The Mormons were vilified in those years in large part because Joseph Smith believed in polygamy. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Five Years quotes by Barack Obama
#216. In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our middle class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor. #Quote by Barack Obama
Five Years quotes by Linda Hogan
#217. Remembering, in Spanish, means to pass something through the heart again, and now all the years are going through his heart again as he tries to turn away from the ocean. But he hears it and he knows it is out there. Some sleepless nights he goes out. But this night in his sleep he says, Oh, look at all those beautiful life rafts. #Quote by Linda Hogan
Five Years quotes by Sara Shepard
#218. You should know the truth about the stars

Five Years quotes by John H. Westerhoff III
#219. Those who created the structure of the Episcopal Church were, in many cases, the same individuals who had framed and adopted the Constitution of the United States only a few years earlier, so it is not surprising that our structure is very similar. #Quote by John H. Westerhoff III
Five Years quotes by Mark Millar
#220. Why train for years to do a job, you bitched about all day? Didn't it make more sense to follow your dreams and maybe do a little good at the same time. #Quote by Mark Millar
Five Years quotes by Alan W. Watts
#221. [F]or several thousand years we have been obsessed with a false humility - on the one hand, putting ourselves down as mere creatures" who came into this world by the whim of God or the fluke of blind forces, and on the other, conceiving ourselves as separate personal egos fighting to control the physical world. We have lacked the real humility of recognizing that we are members of the biosphere, the "harmony of contained conflicts" in which we cannot exist at all without the cooperation of plants, insects, fish, cattle, and bacteria. In the same measure, we have lacked the proper self-respect of recognizing that I, the individual organism, am a structure of such fabulous ingenuity that it calls the whole universe into being. In the act of putting everything at a distance so as to describe and control it, we have orphaned ourselves both from the surrounding world and from our own bodies - leaving "I" as a discontented and alienated spook, anxious, guilty, unrelated, and alone. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Five Years quotes by Will Smith
#222. You are who you associate with. Look around at your five closest friends and that's who you are. If you don't want to be that person, you know what you gotta do. #Quote by Will Smith

#223. It's going to be really weird when I'm 80 years old, in a walker, and people are still calling me America's sweetheart. We need a new one. #Quote by Mary Lou Retton
Five Years quotes by Elena Ferrante
#224. They were complicated years. The order of the world in which we had grown up was dissolving. The old skills resulting from long study and knowledge of the correct political line suddenly seemed senseless. Anarchist, Marxist, Gramscian, Communist, Leninist, Trotskyite, Maoist, worker were quickly becoming obsolete labels or, worse, a mark of brutality. The exploitation of man by man and the logic of maximum profit, which before had been considered an abomination, had returned to become the linchpins of freedom and democracy everywhere. Meanwhile, by means legal and illegal, all the accounts that remained open in the state and in the revolutionary organizations were being closed with a heavy hand. One might easily end up murdered or in jail, and among the common people a stampede had begun. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Five Years quotes by Sophie Calle
#225. I traveled for seven years, and when I came back home I was completely lost. I didn't know what to do with my life, so I decided to let people decide for me. For month I followed strangers on the street. For the pleasure of following, not because the party interested me. I photographed them without their knowledge, took note of their movements, and finally lost sight of them. At the end of January 1980, I chose a man and followed him to Venice. That's how I started. That's all. #Quote by Sophie Calle
Five Years quotes by Steve Hely
#226. I try not to hate anybody. "Hate is a four-letter word," like the bumper sticker says. But I hate book reviewers.

Book reviewers are the most despicable, loathsome order of swine that ever rooted about the earth. They are sniveling, revolting creatures who feed their own appetites for bile by gnawing apart other people's work. They are human garbage. They all deserve to be struck down by awful diseases described in the most obscure dermatology journals.

Book reviewers live in tiny studios that stink of mothballs and rotting paper. Their breath reeks of stale coffee. From time to time they put on too-tight shirts and pants with buckles and shuffle out of their lairs to shove heaping mayonnaise-laden sandwiches into their faces, which are worn in to permanent snarls. Then they go back to their computers and with fat stubby fingers they hammer out "reviews." Periodically they are halted as they burst into porcine squeals, gleefully rejoicing in their cruelty.

Even when being "kindly," book reviewers reveal their true nature as condescending jerks. "We look forward to hearing more from the author," a book reviewer might say. The prissy tones sound like a second-grade piano teacher, offering you a piece of years-old strawberry hard candy and telling you to practice more.

But a bad book review is just disgusting.

Ask yourself: of all the jobs available to literate people, what monster chooses the job of "telling people how bad #Quote by Steve Hely
Five Years quotes by Scott Walker
#227. In my teenage years I was as addicted to great pop as I was to free jazz, electronic music, and hardcore blues. #Quote by Scott Walker
Five Years quotes by Steve Robinson
#228. maybe an hour in the morning or at night and just dedicate it to that skill you have. Read books about it. Take courses to excel at it. Promise. In the next five or six months, you will be better at it than most people. Your confidence will go up and you will no longer compare yourself to others or try to be good at something just for the sake of proving to others that you are confident. You will have finally discovered what your life will be about. #Quote by Steve Robinson
Five Years quotes by Francoise Sagan
#229. Love lasts about seven years. That's how long it takes for the cells of the body to totally replace themselves. #Quote by Francoise Sagan
Five Years quotes by Barbara Delinsky
#230. But you don't know what I want, do you. You formed an idea of who I am and What I do, and you've woven that idea in your life. You may listen to my words, but you don't hear my thoughts. You don't hear my needs. You don't see me. You haven't seen me in years. #Quote by Barbara Delinsky
Five Years quotes by Atul Gawande
#231. It turns out that inheritance has surprisingly little influence on longevity. James Vaupel, of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, in Rostock, Germany, notes that only 3 percent of how long you'll live, compared with the average, is explained by your parents' longevity; by contrast, up to 90 percent of how tall you are is explained by your parents' height. Even genetically identical twins vary widely in life span: the typical gap is more than fifteen years. If our genes explain less than we imagined, the classical wear-and-tear model may explain more than we knew. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Five Years quotes by Ayn Rand
#232. But I still wonder how it was possible, in those graceless years of transition, long ago, that men did not see whither they were going, and went on, in blindness and cowardice, to their fate. I wonder, for it is hard for me to conceive how men who knew the word "I," could give it up and not know what they lost. But such has been the story, for I have lived in the City of the damned, and I know what horror men permitted to be brought upon them. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Five Years quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#233. Priesthood quorums teach and assist their members to attain good health, financial stability, and a year's supply of food and clothing. They also teach their members to be self-reliant and to give their time, talents, and means in behalf of the Church, community, and needy. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Five Years quotes by Alan Lightman
#234. Music is, of course, a universal emotional experience, cutting across cultures and languages. I studied piano for ten years as a child and consider that experience one of the most valuable in my life. #Quote by Alan Lightman
