Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by J.G. Ballard
#1. Luxury Rent Rebel Surrender'
'Posh People's Scorched Earth Policy'
'Win a House in Chelsea Marina'
But we had not surrendered. The exodus had been a tactical retreat, a principled refusal to accept the rule of police and bailiffs. Rather than submit to the patronising do-goodery of social-workers and psychologists like Henry and myself, the residents had decided to leave with their heads held high and integrity intact. The revolution would continue on a date to be agreed, seeing itself in a hundred other middle class estates across the land, in Tudorbethan semis and mock-Georgian villas. Wherever there was a private school or a snow-white lavatory bowl, a Gilbert and Sullivan performance or a well-loved old Bentley, the spectre of Kay Churchill would lighten the darkness, hope springing from her raised middle finger. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Bill Bryson
#2. To get from "protoplasmal primordial atomic globule" (as Gilbert and Sullivan put it) to sentient upright modern human has required you to mutate new traits over and over in a precisely timely manner for an exceedingly long while. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Stephen Sondheim
#3. The fact is popular art dates. It grows quaint. How many people feel strongly about Gilbert and Sullivan today compared to those who felt strongly in 1890? #Quote by Stephen Sondheim
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Ben Macintyre
#4. A farmer by birth, Purchase was 'rugged in appearance and character,' with 'an impish sense of humor' and a finely calibrated sense of the ridiculous: he loved Gilbert and Sullivan operas, toy trains, boiled eggs, and his model piggery in Ipswitch. #Quote by Ben Macintyre
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Helen Macdonald
#5. ...he lifted the fat and frightened hawk onto his fist reciting it passages from Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard II, Othello-- 'but tragedy had to be kept out of the voice'-- and all the sonnets he could remember, whistling hymns to it, playing it Gilbert and Sullivan and Italian opera, and deciding, on reflection, that hawks liked Shakespeare best. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Dinah Sheridan
#6. But I think you could say my parts in Appointment In London and Gilbert and Sullivan were particularly interesting. #Quote by Dinah Sheridan
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Robert M. Hutchins
#7. On the principle laid down by Gilbert and Sullivan that when everybody is somebody, nobody is anybody; if everybody is abnormal, we don't need to worry about anybody. #Quote by Robert M. Hutchins
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Karen DeCrow
#8. The irony is that the more we fight age, the more it shows. Paint on a 50-year-old face brings to mind a Gilbert and Sullivan comic figure. Smooth the cheeks, and suddenly the ear lobes and hands look out of place. Do we run around in October, painting the gold leaves green? #Quote by Karen DeCrow
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Isaac Asimov
#9. Is everything normal now?"
"Well he hasn't got religious mania, and he isn't running around in a circle
spouting Gilbert and Sullivan, so I suppose he's normal." (45) #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#10. Up until the middle of the nineteenth century, men of science were all believers. Most of the great early English naturalists were also ministers; they were the only ones who had education and leisure for such pursuits. Darwin himself almost became a minister. God's power was always thought to be most easily and obviously revealed in the majestic works of nature. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#11. But doesn't that make sense? That the infinite would be, indeed ... infinite? That even the most holy amongst us would only be able to see scattered pictures of the eternal picture at any given time? And that maybe if we could collect those pieces and compare them, a story about God would begin to emerge that resembles and includes everyone? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#12. The love between Uncle Dees and Roger was every bit as enduring as it had been immediate. They were never to be seen apart, man and dog, not since the moment of their introduction. Very quickly after their arrival in Amsterdam four years earlier, Roger had given Alma to understand that he was no longer her dog
that, in fact, he had never been her dog, nor had he ever been Ambrose's dog, but that he had been Dees' dog all along, by force of pure and plain destiny. The fact that Roger was born in distant Tahiti, whereas Dees van Devender resided in Holland, had been the result, Roger appeared to believe, of an unfortunate clerical error, now thankfully rectified. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Gilbert Gottfried
#13. I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by my attempt at humor regarding the tragedy in Japan. I meant no disrespect, and my thoughts are with the victims and their families. #Quote by Gilbert Gottfried
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by John Jeremiah Sullivan
#14. We need others to bring us back into the comity of human life. This appears to have been the final lesson for me - to appreciate someone's embrace not as forgiveness or as an amicable judgment but as an acknowledgment that from time to time private life becomes brutally hard for every one of us, and that without one another, without some sort of community, the nightmare is prone to lurk, waiting for an opening. #Quote by John Jeremiah Sullivan
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Sullivan Stapleton
#15. I keep my diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein. #Quote by Sullivan Stapleton
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Brantley Gilbert
#16. I think it's just a conglomerate of everybody's influences that comes out on the record, and live as well. #Quote by Brantley Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#17. I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#18. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Kelly Loy Gilbert
#19. Because if you're tangled up in someone else, if your futures are tied that way, if that's real and if you know when it happens - then it means you know who you belong to, and you know whose fates are tied to yours, whether you like it or planned it or not, whether they still exist in the same world with you or they don't, and I think that's where everything begins and ends. I think that's everything. #Quote by Kelly Loy Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#20. The two slept most of the next day, waking only when a boy delivered what he thought might be breakfast, or perhaps lunch, but turned out to be the evening meal. The steaming bowls of vegetable stew and round loaf of brown rye arrived along with a note from Arcadius asking them to visit his office after eating and to do so while being seen by as few students as possible. There was a postscript for Royce explaining it was all right if some students saw them. This was underlined twice #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Daniel M. Gilbert
#21. Most of us appear to believe that we are more athletic, intelligent, organized, ethical, logical, interesting, open-minded, and healthy-not to mention more attractive-than the average person. #Quote by Daniel M. Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#22. I keep remembering one of my Guru's teachings about happiness. She says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you're fortunate enough. But that's not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it. If you don't you will eat away your innate contentment. It's easy enough to pray when you're in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainments. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#23. You know, even I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I honestly cannot identify. And what is that thing? And how are we to relate to it in a way that will not make us lose our minds, but, in fact, might actually keep us sane? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Melanie Shankle
#24. Someday you're gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You'll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing. ELIZABETH GILBERT #Quote by Melanie Shankle
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Vance Gilbert
#25. I can be whatever it takes to be a folksinger. Folk music to me, if we had to have a definition, is portable music. A lot of what I do is flash, gesture, athletics, but what it comes down to is getting across a melody that will help it stick to your ribs, and being able to take it from town to town. #Quote by Vance Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#26. Never put away your labors while the sun is high, Alma, with the hopes of finding more hours to work tomorrow - for you shall never have any more extra time tomorrow than you had today, and once you have fallen behindhand in your responsibilities, you will never catch up. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Martin  Gilbert
#27. It was five months since Haig had told the British War Council: 'The machine gun is a much over-rated weapon and two per battalion is more than sufficient.' He was once again being proved terribly wrong. #Quote by Martin Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Anne Sullivan
#28. If the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less showily. Let him go and come freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself. #Quote by Anne Sullivan
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Gilbert Hernandez
#29. For me, the reason to make the movie is that if people like the comic, then people would like the movie if it was well made. There are good movies for them, but very few. And I mean that in a true sense. If they love your story for freaking 30 years, then they can do a movie about it. #Quote by Gilbert Hernandez
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#30. But gay marriage is coming to America first and foremost because marriage here is a secular concern, not a religious one. The objection to gay marriage is almost invariably biblical, but nobody's legal vows in this country are defined by interpretation of biblical verse - or at least, not since the Supreme Court stood up for Richard and Mildred Loving. A church wedding ceremony is a nice thing, but it is neither required for legal marriage in America nor does it constitute legal marriage in America. What constitutes legal marriage in this country is that critical piece of paper that you and your betrothed must sign and then register with the state. The morality of your marriage may indeed rest between you and God, but it's that civic and secular paperwork which makes your vows official here on earth. Ultimately, then, it is the business of America's courts, not America's churches, to decide the rules of matrimonial law, and it is in those courts that the same-sex marriage debate will finally be settled. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#31. True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it. It is arduous and it is rare. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#32. We gallop through our lives like circus performers balancing on two speeding side-by-side horses
one foot is on the horse called "fate," the other on the horse called "free will." And the question you have to ask every day is
which horse is which? Which horse do I need to stop worrying about because it's not under my control, and which do I need to steer with concentrated effort? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Gilbert And Sullivan Patience quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#33. Yet I can tell you that there was a lonely and untenanted corner of my heart that I'd never known was there - and Frank moved right into it. Holding him in my heart made me feel like I belonged to love itself. Although we never lived together or shared a bed, he was always a part of me. I saved stories for him all week, so I would have good things to tell him. I asked for his opinions, because I respected his ethics. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
