General Rieekan quotes by Philippe Petit
#1. When art in general, and film in particular, succeeds is when it pulls you away onto a voyage. Then it's a good film. #Quote by Philippe Petit
General Rieekan quotes by Gray Davis
#2. I know that Duke made a number of demands, including that the attorney general drop its investigation. We have no intention of asking the attorney general to do that. #Quote by Gray Davis
General Rieekan quotes by Janet Evanovich
#3. Stroll around and look sexy, ask annoying questions, in general get on everyone's nerves. All those things that come naturally to you. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
General Rieekan quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#4. Einstein's E=mc2 is an extraordinary concept. So radical: matter and energy are two phases of the same sort of general stuff. There's only one other idea that radical: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
General Rieekan quotes by Michael Chabon
#5. Literature, like magic, has always been about the handling of secrets, about the pain, the destruction, and the marvelous liberation that can result when they are revealed. Telling the truth when the truth matters most is almost always a frightening prospect. If a writer doesn't give away secrets, his own or those of the people he loves; if she doesn't court disapproval, reproach, and general wrath, whether of friends, family, or party apparatchiks; if the writer submits his work to an internal censor long before anyone else can get their hands on it, the result is pallid, inanimate, a lump of earth. #Quote by Michael Chabon
General Rieekan quotes by Steve Albini
#6. I think fashion is repulsive. The whole idea that someone else can make clothing that is supposed to be in style and make other people look good is ridiculous. It sickens me to think that there is an industry that plays to the low self-esteem of the general public. I would like the fashion industry to collapse. #Quote by Steve Albini
General Rieekan quotes by Cillian Murphy
#7. I suppose I've always been attracted to this sort of outsider in general - in literature, in music, politics, whatever - and to the person that is able to be relentlessly themselves. I don't think that I have that quality, that strength of mind. #Quote by Cillian Murphy
General Rieekan quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#8. He is a Londoner, too, in his writings. In his familiar letters he displays a rambling urban vivacity, a tendency to to veer off the point and to muddle his syntax. He had a brilliantly eclectic mind, picking up words and images while at the same time forging them in new and unexpected combinations. He conceived several ideas all at once, and sometimes forgot to separate them into their component parts. This was true of his lectures, too, in which brilliant perceptions were scattered in a wilderness of words. As he wrote on another occasion, "The lake babbled not less, and the wind murmured not, nor the little fishes leaped for joy that their tormentor was not."
This strangely contorted and convoluted style also characterizes his verses, most of which were appended as commentaries upon his paintings. Like Blake, whose prophetic books bring words and images in exalted combination, Turner wished to make a complete statement. Like Blake, he seemed to consider the poet's role as being in part prophetic. His was a voice calling in the wilderness, and, perhaps secretly, he had an elevated sense of his status and his vocation. And like Blake, too, he was often considered to be mad. He lacked, however, the poetic genius of Blake - compensated perhaps by the fact that by general agreement he is the greater artist. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
General Rieekan quotes by Ralph D. Stacey
#9. Most Western managers believe that long-term success flows from a state of stability, harmony, predictability, discipline, and consensus-a state that I refer to as stable equilibrium. This belief leads them to demand general prescriptions that they can immediately convert into successful action. The most popular prescriptions are to formulate a vision of an organization's future state, to prepare long-term plans to realize that vision, to set strategic milestones and monitor achievements against those plans, to write mission statements and persuade people to share the same culture, to encourage widespread participation and consensus in decision making, and to install control systems that allow top executives to set the organization's direction and stay in command. #Quote by Ralph D. Stacey
General Rieekan quotes by Stacey D'Erasmo
#10. I don't go online when I'm writing - that's the devil's workshop - but in general, I'm on there as much as any other global citizen. #Quote by Stacey D'Erasmo
General Rieekan quotes by Mary Russell Mitford
#11. I foresee that the Andersen and Fairy Tale fashion will not last; none of these things away from general nature do. #Quote by Mary Russell Mitford
General Rieekan quotes by John Fowles
#12. Under this swarm of waspish self-inquiries he began to feel sorry for himself - a brilliant man trapped, a Byron tamed; and his mind wandered back to Sarah, to visual images, attempts to recollect that face, that mouth, that generous mouth. Undoubtedly it awoke some memory in him, too tenuous, perhaps too general, to trace to any source in his past; but it unsettled him and haunted him, by calling to some hidden self he hardly knew existed. He said it to himself: It is the stupidest thing, but that girl attracts me. It seemed clear to him that it was not Sarah in herself who attracted him - how could she, he was betrothed - but some emotion, some possibility she symbolized. She made him aware of a deprivation. His future had always seemed to him of vast potential; and now suddenly it was a fixed voyage to a known place. She had reminded him of that. #Quote by John Fowles
General Rieekan quotes by John Linder
#13. While tributes to Americans who had lost their lives in battle had been held in a number of towns across the nation, one of the more well-known stories about the beginnings of Memorial Day is the story about General John Logan. #Quote by John Linder
General Rieekan quotes by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
#14. If I still had the space, charcoal, and available walls,
I could compose a great work about forgetting:
a general theory of oblivion. #Quote by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
General Rieekan quotes by Saint Augustine
#15. Samson crushed himself and his enemies to death beneath the ruins of a building. He can only be excused on the grounds that the Spirit of the Lord, who wrought miracles through him, had bidden him to do so. But, apart from such men excepted by the command of a just law in general or of God, the very Source of justice, in a special case, any one who kills a human being, himself or another, is guilty of murder. #Quote by Saint Augustine
General Rieekan quotes by Gladys Taber
#16. History records the large events or the general condition of society, but only an individual can put down the way of life in a small town ... #Quote by Gladys Taber
General Rieekan quotes by Joshua Reynolds
#17. Raphael and Titian seem to have looked at Nature for different purposes; they both had the power of extending their view to the whole; but one looked only for the general effect as produced by form, the other as produced by colour. #Quote by Joshua Reynolds
General Rieekan quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#18. I regard it in fact as the great advantage of the mathematical technique that it allows us to describe, by means of algebraic equations, the general character of a pattern even where we are ignorant of the numerical values which will determine its particular manifestation. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
General Rieekan quotes by Hiromu Arakawa
#19. Haven't you ever heard of the saying, "If you want to shoot the general, first shoot the horse!"?'
If you wanna shoot the general, then you should just SHOOT THE GENERAL!'
Ed #Quote by Hiromu Arakawa
General Rieekan quotes by Emma Roberts
#20. I love to just work with new people in general. It's always really fun. #Quote by Emma Roberts
General Rieekan quotes by George Orwell
#21. All progressive thought has assumed tacitly that human beings desire nothing beyond ease, security and avoidance of pain ... Hitler, because in his joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don't only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life. #Quote by George Orwell
General Rieekan quotes by Patricia C. Wrede
#22. From what I'd written in "The Improper Princess" and from the history I'd given in Talking to Dragons, I already knew the general outline of her adventures, which, again, required someone smart, practical, and sure of herself. Explaining this occasionally confounds people who think that I wrote Cimorene as some sort of feminist statement about what women can achieve. I find their surprise hard to understand. My real-life family and friends are full of women like Cimorene, from my twin cousins, who have been fur trappers in the Alaskan bush for most of their lives, to my mother, who became an engineer long before women's liberation officially opened "nontraditional careers" to women, to my grandmothers, aunts, and cousins, who were office managers, farmers, nurses, nuns, geologists, and bookkeepers, among other things. None of these women takes any guff from anyone. They aren't proving a point about what women could, should, or can do; they are ignoring that whole question (which none of them considers a question worth asking at all) and getting on with doing the things that interest them most. #Quote by Patricia C. Wrede
General Rieekan quotes by Stephen Root
#23. Researching real people and doing them, I think, is harder than anything else. You don't want to do a caricature of them and you don't want to do an impression. You just want to do the best you can, in terms of presenting their views and a general impression of the guy. That's the hardest thing to do, real people. #Quote by Stephen Root
General Rieekan quotes by Sigmund Freud
#24. Religion has clearly performed great services for human civilization. It has contributed much towards the taming of the asocial instincts. But not enough. It has ruled human society for many thousands of years and has had time to show what it can achieve. If it had succeeded in making the majority of mankind happy, in comforting them, in reconciling them to life and in making them into vehicles of civilization, no one would dream of attempting to alter the existing conditions. But what do we see instead? We see that an appallingly large number of people are dissatisfied with civilization and unhappy in it, and feel it as a yoke which must be shaken off; and that these people either do everything in their power to change that civilization, or else go so far in their hostility to it that they will have nothing to do with civilization or with a restriction of instinct. At this point it will be objected against us that this state of affairs is due to the very fact that religion has lost a part of its influence over human masses precisely because of the deplorable effect of the advances of science. We will note this admission and the reason given for it, and we shall make use of it later for our own purposes; but the objection itself has no force.

It is doubtful whether men were in general happier at a time when religious doctrines held unrestricted sway; more moral they certainly were not. They have always known how to externalize the precepts of religion and thus to n #Quote by Sigmund Freud
General Rieekan quotes by Jarrett McCall
#25. Ishmael had the posture of a classic general; the intellect of a cab driver. #Quote by Jarrett McCall
General Rieekan quotes by W. Kamau Bell
#26. It doesn't do any good to just be on the side of black people. The funnier comedic position is to be on the side of oppressed people in general. #Quote by W. Kamau Bell
General Rieekan quotes by Flann O'Brien
#27. Is there any body of citizens in the country who actually welcome and enjoy a General Election?..YES. Those citizens are schoolchildren ... attending national schools. It may be very cynical, but on the appointed day those Lyceums of lower learning are turned into polling stations, the homes of innocence temporarily become part of the grim apparatus of politics and the scheming of sundry chancers. #Quote by Flann O'Brien
General Rieekan quotes by Hayley Hasselhoff
#28. People dwell so much on the little things, but why should they hold you back when you have the big things to look forward to? By exuding positive energy when dealing with your problems, you will exude it in your being in general. Treat yourself with love and you will exude love to others. #Quote by Hayley Hasselhoff
General Rieekan quotes by Jose Saramago
#29. The General Cemetery's unwritten motto is All the Names, although it should be said that, in fact, these three words fit the Central Registry like a glove, because it is there that all the names are to be found, both those of the dead and those of the living, while the cemetery, given its role as ultimate destination and ultimate depository, has to content itself only with the names of the dead. This mathematical evidence, however, is not enough to silence the keepers of the General Cemetery who, confronted by what they call their apparent numerical inferiority, usually shrug their shoulders and argue, With time and patience everyone ends up here, the Central Registry, from this point of view, is merely a tributary of the General Cemetery. #Quote by Jose Saramago
General Rieekan quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#30. Men with common minds seldom break through general rules. Prudence is ever the resort of weakness; and they rarely go as far as as they may in any undertaking, who are determined not to go beyond it on any account. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
General Rieekan quotes by C.S. Pacat
#31. You fight them, his father had said.
You don't trust them. His father had been right. And his father had been ready. Rabatians were cowards and deceivers, they should have scattered when their duplicitous attack met the full force of the Akielon army. But for some reason they hadn't fallen at the first sign of a real fight, they had stood firm, and shown metal, and, for hour upon hour, they had fought, until the Akielon lines had begun to slip and falter.
And their general wasn't the king, it was the twenty-five year old prince, holding the field.
Father, I can take him, he'd said.
Then go, his father had said, and bring
us back victory. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
General Rieekan quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#32. I deny the power of the general government to making paper money, or anything else a legal tender. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
