Hard To Keep quotes by Henry Rollins
#1. Not that the writers weren't good. I believe in those books and those writers very much. It's just that in the climate it's really hard to keep the lights on and the doors open when you're selling poetry and literature that appeals to a fringe audience. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Hard To Keep quotes by Mark Blyth
#2. The "German problem" after 1970 became how to keep up with the Germans in terms of efficiency and productivity. One way, as above, was to serially devalue, but that was beginning to hurt. The other way was to tie your currency to the deutsche mark and thereby make your price and inflation rate the same as the Germans, which it turned out would also hurt, but in a different way.

The problem with keeping up with the Germans is that German industrial exports have the lowest price elasticities in the world. In plain English, Germany makes really great stuff that everyone wants and will pay more for in comparison to all the alternatives. So when you tie your currency to the deutsche mark, you are making a one-way bet that your industry can be as competitive as the Germans in terms of quality and price. That would be difficult enough if the deutsche mark hadn't been undervalued for most of the postwar period and both German labor costs and inflation rates were lower than average, but unfortunately for everyone else, they were. That gave the German economy the advantage in producing less-than-great stuff too, thereby undercutting competitors in products lower down, as well as higher up the value-added chain. Add to this contemporary German wages, which have seen real declines over the 2000s, and you have an economy that is extremely hard to keep up with. On the other side of this one-way bet were the financial markets. They looked at less dynamic economies, such as the Un #Quote by Mark Blyth
Hard To Keep quotes by James Altucher
#3. Excuses are leaks in a boat. When you cover one, another pops up, and it's even bigger. It's hard to keep the boat repaired and get safely to shore if you have an excuse mind-set. #Quote by James Altucher
Hard To Keep quotes by Henry Rollins
#4. It hurts to let go. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it's so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn't coma back. You're left so alone that you can't explain. Damn, there's nothing like that, is there? I've been there and you have too. You're nodding your head. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Hard To Keep quotes by Kyle MacLachlan
#5. 'Dune' was like a giant machine, and it was hard to keep track of all the pieces, but 'Blue Velvet' was a very sleek, compact little experience. #Quote by Kyle MacLachlan
Hard To Keep quotes by Gary Jennings
#6. I write novels, mostly historical ones, and I try hard to keep them accurate as to historical facts, milieu and flavor. #Quote by Gary Jennings
Hard To Keep quotes by Beth Mowins
#7. Every game is an away game. Sometimes its hard to keep up with real life. #Quote by Beth Mowins
Hard To Keep quotes by Thomas Mann
#8. It's hard to keep going when it seems like you're not getting anywhere, but you'll never succeed if you stop. Those of us with a dream that seems so far from being realized must remember that the road is long, but only those who stay on the path will reach their destination. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Hard To Keep quotes by Pauline Hanson
#9. I will fight hard to keep my seat in this place, but that will depend on the people who sent me here. #Quote by Pauline Hanson
Hard To Keep quotes by Buddy Guy
#10. It's kind of hard to keep going sometimes but you just have to believe in what you are and what you can do and that's the way to success. #Quote by Buddy Guy
Hard To Keep quotes by Shunryu Suzuki
#11. People say that practicing Zen is difficult, but there is a misunderstanding as to why. It is not difficult because it is hard to sit in the cross- legged position, or to attain enlightenment. It is difficult because it is hard to keep our mind pure and our practice pure in its fundamental sense. #Quote by Shunryu Suzuki
Hard To Keep quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#12. I learned early in my career, where you get so wrapped up and so excited, that all of a sudden you don't think. So I worked very hard to keep myself suppressed. And that's one of the reasons I wasn't gregarious with the gallery. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Hard To Keep quotes by Donna Karan
#13. It's hard to keep the energy going sometimes, that's why I like to go with a group of people who are meditating. I love meditating in groups, it's fantastic. #Quote by Donna Karan
Hard To Keep quotes by Jodi Picoult
#14. It's never fifty-fifty in a marriage. Someone falls in love first. Someone puts someone else up on a pedestal. Someone works hard to keep things rolling smoothly, someone else sails along for the ride. Someone who would do anything to keep it the way it was in the beginning. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Hard To Keep quotes by Sue Grafton
#15. It's hard to keep passing myself off as a grown-up when a piece of me is still six years old and utterly at the mercy of authority. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Hard To Keep quotes by Lou Gramm
#16. I go to the gym five days a week and I have a personal trainer. I am on a strict diet, which is kind of hard to keep up with on the road, but I stick to it as well as I can. #Quote by Lou Gramm
Hard To Keep quotes by Miles Teller
#17. At the end of the day, it's hard to keep relationships with people. I've got my family, my best friends and if a girl's gonna be a part of that then it's got to be good. If not, I'm out. #Quote by Miles Teller
Hard To Keep quotes by Kim Basinger
#18. My dad worked very hard for the money he made, and my mom worked very hard to keep this household up and running and all the kids fed and everything. And she did it in a brilliant fashion. They both did. In fact, the work ethic, to me, is so important in this life. #Quote by Kim Basinger
Hard To Keep quotes by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
#19. She still loved the profession and enjoyed the lives and piece to cameras, but she knew it was all a tad too farcical at times. There were far too many stories they reported and forgot. Far too many conflicts that were once headlines and had captured the imaginations of many now awaited resolution, stale and unwanted as yesterday's tea. It was hard to keep up your spirit when you started realizing it was just a job after all and that a headline did not change someone's destiny. Except maybe the reporter's if she or he was picked up by a rival channel for better pay. So getting into the profession wanting to make a difference and working for the greater good as the journalists of yore had done was certainly not an option anymore. #Quote by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
Hard To Keep quotes by Betty N. Thesky
#20. I was on a 747 flight out of Denver with four flight attendants on the plane. One of the flight attendants got off the plane to go check someone's carry-on bag in the cargo hold, and while she was gone, the door closed and we began to taxi out. While we were giving the demo, we looked out the window of the airplane to see the flight attendant running alongside the plane in the snow, waving and yelling and trying to catch up to us. 'Did you notice that we're missing someone?' I said to the other flight attendant. 'Yes, but try to keep it low-key - there's a supervisor on board!' Well, it's hard to keep it low-key when someone is running alongside your plane, waving and screaming. The plane stopped and the air stairs went down so she could get on board, and my co-worker said, 'Tell her to try to be inconspicuous when she gets back on.' Well, she had to walk the entire length of the plane to get back to her station, and everybody on board broke into applause. #Quote by Betty N. Thesky
Hard To Keep quotes by Lauren Bacall
#21. In the world of relationships, possibly the most complicated, uncommon, hard to find, hard to keep and most rewarding has got to be friendship. #Quote by Lauren Bacall
Hard To Keep quotes by Kim Harrison
#22. Worried, I touched the jacket's sleeve. "You think it's too much?" I asked, working hard to keep my tone non-combative. I'd had this conversation with ex-roommates before. #Quote by Kim Harrison
Hard To Keep quotes by Laura Harring
#23. For me, it's hard to keep up with trends. I just go for the roles and movies that I feel I could add value to, or contribute to, that I feel I could portray. #Quote by Laura Harring
Hard To Keep quotes by Jazz Feylynn
#24. Maybe that's why the Westmores never allowed any pets. Hard to keep them off the menu. #Quote by Jazz Feylynn
Hard To Keep quotes by Samantha Young
#25. This was a man who'd fought long and hard to keep me, even when I was bent on self-destructing us. This was a man who understood I could be difficult and stubborn and a little bit irrational (okay, maybe a freaking lot irrational), and still loved me. #Quote by Samantha Young
Hard To Keep quotes by Colleen Houck
#26. Wow," I said. "That story is disturbing on so many different levels. One thing that's mystifying about Indian mythology is how often the names change. The skin color changes – she's golden, she's black, she's pink. Her name changes – she's Durga, Kali, Parvati. Her personality changes – she's a loving mother, she's a fierce warrior, she's terrible in her wrath, she's a lover, she's vengeful, she's weak and mortal, then she's powerful and can't be defeated. Then there's her marital status – she's sometimes single, sometimes married. It's hard to keep all the stories straight."

Ren snickered. "Sounds like a normal woman to me. #Quote by Colleen Houck
Hard To Keep quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#27. When you have been hurt by life, it may be hard to keep that in mind. When you are standing very close to a large object, all you can see is the object. Only by stepping back from it can you also see the rest of its setting around it. When we are stunned by some tragedy, we can only see and feel the tragedy. Only with time and distance can we see the tragedy in the context of a whole life and a whole world. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Hard To Keep quotes by Charles Sheehan-Miles
#28. Sometimes ... I think parents work so hard to keep us from making their mistakes, they won't allow us to make our own. #Quote by Charles Sheehan-Miles
Hard To Keep quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#29. I think we're the only ones in the building," he says.
"Then no one will mind when I do this!" I jump onto the desk and parade back and forth. St. Clair belts out a song, and I shimmy to the sound of his voice. When he finishes,I bow with a grand flourish.
"Quick!" he says.
"What?" I hop off the desk. Is Nate here? Did he see?
But St. Clair runs to the stairwell. He throws open the door and screams. The ehco makes us both jump, and then together we scream again at the top of our lungs. It's exhilarating. St. Clair chases me to the elevator,and we ride it to the rooftop. He hangs back but laughs as I spit off the side, trying to hit a lingerie advertisement. The wind is fierce,and my aim is off,so I race back down two flights of stairs. Our staircase is wide and steady, so he's only a few feet behind me. We reach his floor.
"Well," he says. Our conversation halts for the first time in hours.
I look past him. "Um.Good night."
"See you tomorrow? Late breakfast at the creperie?"
"That'd be nice."
"Unless-" he cuts himself off.
Unless what? He's hesitant, changed his mind. The moment passes. I give him one more questioning look, but he turns away.
"Okay." It's hard to keep the disappointment out of my voice. "See you in the morning." I take the steps down and glance back.He's staring at me. I lift my hand and wave. He's oddly statuesque. I push through the door to my floor,shaking my head. I don't understand why things always #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
Hard To Keep quotes by Richard Branson
#30. Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple. #Quote by Richard Branson
Hard To Keep quotes by Paul Monette
#31. But the fevers are on me now, the virus mad to ravage my last fifty T cells. It's hard to keep the memory at full dazzle, with so much loss to mock it. Roger gone, Craig gone, Cesar gone, Stevie gone. And this feeling that I'm the last one left, in a world where only the ghosts still laugh. But at least they're the ghosts of full-grown men, proof that all of us got that far, free of the traps and the lies. And from that moment on the brink of summer's end, no one would ever tell me again that men like me couldn't love. #Quote by Paul Monette
Hard To Keep quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#32. Ember, he's not going to - " I pushed off the car. "Please. Hayden, please don't tell him. I'm all Olivia really has. Please." My voice cracked, and I looked away, embarrassed. "She's all I have."

Hayden made a soft noise deep in his throat. Then he clasped my elbows and pulled me right up against him. His arms carefully snaked around my waist, trapping me in a hug. It could have been the bunny. Hell, it could've been the last two years that suddenly made me want to stay in Hayden's embrace. Surely - surely not the way his heat thawed the ice encasing my entire body. Or how hard his chest felt under the sweater… or how perfectly I fit against him. And he was a chivalrous type of guy. Right? He wanted to help me control my gift, as ridiculous as that sounded. Comfort - he offered comfort, and I needed to remember that. His arms around my waist made it hard, really hard to keep that in mind, though.

"Okay." Hayden's breath stirred the hair around my ear. "Even though I think I should tell him, I won't. But I will figure out who did this. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Hard To Keep quotes by Azzedine Alaia
#33. In modelling, it's very hard to keep in touch with the people you knew when you started. #Quote by Azzedine Alaia
Hard To Keep quotes by Patty Schemel
#34. For a person that's on tour, the environment is difficult. I don't want to come off sounding like, "Oh, it's so hard!," but it gets tough, after awhile. You need to take care of yourself. You need to sleep and you need to eat. Those things are hard to keep on any kind of routine. #Quote by Patty Schemel
Hard To Keep quotes by Babe Ruth
#35. Gee, its lonesome in the outfield. It's hard to keep awake with nothing to do. #Quote by Babe Ruth
Hard To Keep quotes by Kara Swisher
#36. I, for one, am pretty exhausted since I started blogging almost a year ago. But I am blaming that on my two sons, aged 3 and 6, whose perpetual-motion-machine energy is hard to keep up with at my advanced age. #Quote by Kara Swisher
Hard To Keep quotes by Haile Gebrselassie
#37. All athletes need three things: commitment, discipline and hard work. Without that it's hard to keep running. #Quote by Haile Gebrselassie
Hard To Keep quotes by Gary Allan
#38. When I look into your eyes I still get weak
And when Im this close to you I just cant speak
And its hard to keep my hands to myself
When I know I could never love anybody else #Quote by Gary Allan
Hard To Keep quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#39. The lighthouse teaches me to work hard, to keep my room clean, to be honest and to be nice to people." Then, reflecting, looking down at her feet, "My room is a mess and I lie sometimes and I'm not always nice to people but that's the idea. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Hard To Keep quotes by Rod Blagojevich
#40. One of the greatest challenges in collecting child support is that deadbeat dads move from job to job and state to state. it's hard to keep track of them. #Quote by Rod Blagojevich
Hard To Keep quotes by Jonathan Cainer
#41. Nothing in this world is more powerful, or more dangerous, than the truth. That's why some people go to such lengths to avoid hearing it. It may also be why others strive so hard to keep their conversations empty. They wouldn't want to find themselves accidentally saying something meaningful that might bring about a change. #Quote by Jonathan Cainer
Hard To Keep quotes by Margaret Atwood
#42. Women are hard to keep track of, most of them. They slip into other names, and sink without a trace. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Hard To Keep quotes by Kevin Roose
#43. It's hard to keep harping on Liberty's intolerance, though, because just as my aunts are nothing like the demonized stereotypes of gay people that are tossed around at Liberty (they're both psychologically balanced, with stable jobs, healthy family lives, and a long-term, monogamous relationship), the majority of my friends at Liberty aren't the intolerant demagogues Tina and Teresa picture when they think of Liberty students. In Tina's latest e-mail, she mentioned that she and Teresa had run into a group of fundamentalist Christians at an equality rally in Spokane. She described them as "negative and hateful," and reported that they were toting signs with messages like "You deserve Hell" and "God is angry with the wicked every day." Maybe I'm deluded, but that just doesn't sound like my hallmates. Most of them believe homosexuality is a sin, yes, but they're not going to picket pride parades on the weekend. #Quote by Kevin Roose
Hard To Keep quotes by Muriel Maufroy
#44. it is hard to keep your feet on the earth while your heart looks for the heavens. #Quote by Muriel Maufroy
Hard To Keep quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#45. Information is a lot like water; it's hard to hold on to, and hard to keep from leaking away. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Hard To Keep quotes by Louise Gornall
#46. You don't look very sick..."

"How grossly inappropriate of you to notice,' I reply, fighting hard to keep my voice even. #Quote by Louise Gornall
Hard To Keep quotes by Reginald Rose
#47. It's very hard to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And no matter where you run into it, prejudice obscures the truth. #Quote by Reginald Rose
Hard To Keep quotes by Lawrence Kasdan
#48. If your work is going to draw from life, you'd better work very hard to keep up with reality. #Quote by Lawrence Kasdan
Hard To Keep quotes by Akwaeke Emezi
#49. It was hard to keep secrets; you had to keep track of them, regulate how they moved through your body, make sure they didn't swerve and jump out of your mouth. #Quote by Akwaeke Emezi
Hard To Keep quotes by Marie Forleo
#50. Take a look in the mirror. Who are you today? Discover yourself anew. Don't assume you are the same person you were last week or last year. Don't limit yourself with your history. Look at your partner with new eyes each day as well. Who is this person? Rediscover him. Don't assume he is the same person that you were with last week or last year. Don't jail him with your judgments or his past. You cannot control how your partner shows up. What you can control, however, is how you show up in relationship to him. Rather than a stale repetition of the good old days we all fight so hard to re-create, be open to the newness in each moment and give your relationship a chance to breathe.
Trying hard to keep a relationship together is a classic sign that it's falling apart. Don't pretend everything is OK when it's not or gloss over problems in order to save face. Welcome challenges and speak your truth. Every so-called problem is an opportunity in disguise for you to expand and express new levels of your irresistibility. #Quote by Marie Forleo
Hard To Keep quotes by Corey Feldman
#51. With my son, I work very hard to keep him away from the press and media and I want an opportunity for him to lead as normal a life as possible. #Quote by Corey Feldman
Hard To Keep quotes by Bea C. Pilotin
#52. Where have you been?" I softly answered followed by a question. I wanted to laugh hysterically at the controlled calmness of it all, as if nothing at all had happened, as if he hadn't resurrected himself after an eternity of absence.
"New York," I have a good friend there. I found a job, a place. I had to- away from here; away from Bella; from you."
Swallowing, I clasped my hands together to stop from trembling and I said in a low, audible voice, "From me?"
He sighed heavily. "I can't love you, Helena. I still love Bella. And I suppose I could love another woman in another way at the same time, but not you."
"…but why?" I tried hard to keep my voice and gaze even. I glanced at the plain wedding ring on the third finger on his left hand, his wedding band. It was gleaming brightly in the firelight. I felt my heart plummet, like a disappointed child.
Seeking the right words, he replied with a very soft voice, "It's because I would always see you as an extension of her. I want to fall in love with you in separate way, the one that involves only us, uninfluenced by the past and our hurt. I can't do that now and I can't tell when I'll be able to. #Quote by Bea C. Pilotin
Hard To Keep quotes by Kurt Cobain
#53. It's really not hard to keep your dignity and sign to a major label ... Most people don't have any dignity in the first place. #Quote by Kurt Cobain
Hard To Keep quotes by Jeff Goodell
#54. The oil industry fought hard to keep Keystone alive, making wildly exaggerated claims that the pipeline - the country's largest infrastructure project - would create tens of thousands of jobs and decrease America's reliance on oil from the Middle East. #Quote by Jeff Goodell
Hard To Keep quotes by Colleen Hoover
#55. Sorry," Kiersten says to Lake and I. "Mom says the FCC is responsible for inventing cusswords just for media shock value. She says if everyone would just use them enough, they wouldn't be considered cusswords anymore and no one would ever be offended by them"

This kid is hard to keep up with!

"Your mother encourages you to cuss?" Gavin says.

Kiersten nods. "I don't see it that way. It's more like she's encouraging us to undermine a system flawed through overuse of words that are made out to be harmful, when in fact they're just letters, mixed together like every other word. That's all they are, mixed up letters. Like, take the word "butterfly" for example. What if someone decided one day that butterfly is a cussword? People would eventually start using butterfly as an insult, and to emphasize things in a negative way. The actual WORD doesn't mean anything. It's the negative association people give these words that make them cusswords. So if we all just decided to keep saying butterfly all the time, eventually people would stop caring. The shock value would subside…and it would just become another word again. Same with every other so-called bad word. If we would all just start saying them all the time, They wouldn't be bad anymore. That's what my mom says anyway."

"Kiersten?" Eddie says. "Will you be my new best friend?"

Lake grabs a french fry off her plate and throws it at Eddie, hitting her in the face with it. "That' #Quote by Colleen Hoover

Hard To Keep quotes by Meredith Wild
#57. Ours was a hard love. We'd fallen hard into it, and we'd fought hard to keep it. Our kind of love didn't ask nicely. It took. It ravaged. It consumed the heart whole and asked questions later. The rewards were soul-deep and all-consuming, sweeping through like a wildfire. #Quote by Meredith Wild
Hard To Keep quotes by Thomas Harris
#58. It's hard to have anything isn't it? Rare to get it, hard to keep it. This is a damn slippery planet. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Hard To Keep quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#59. The end result of all this consumption is a society running furiously to stay in place. The overwork by each member of society puts a burden (a negative externality) on others, who must also run hard to keep up. Consumers also run because others are running, with everybody finding themselves in a race they'd rather do without. The #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs

Hard To Keep quotes by Dorothy Bryant
#61. A novel is more a symphony, opera, oratorio. It exists in time, it goes by you a sound dying out as you write on, so that it is very hard to keep in touch with the whole thing ... #Quote by Dorothy Bryant
Hard To Keep quotes by Kenneth G. Ortiz
#62. If you value your friendship with someone, you will always try to maintain that friendship at any cost. No matter what it is that has set you apart. Friends are hard to keep, and true friends are hard to find. #Quote by Kenneth G. Ortiz
Hard To Keep quotes by Jon Oringer
#63. When I started Shutterstock, I tried to get people access to big events. It's very hard to keep up, to publish them quick, and to get the right photographers. #Quote by Jon Oringer
Hard To Keep quotes by Peter S. Beagle
#64. Then what is magic for?" Prince Lír demanded wildly. "What use is wizardry if it cannot save a unicorn?" He gripped the magician's shoulder hard, to keep from falling.

Schmedrick did not turn his head. With a touch of sad mockery in his voice, he said, "That's what heroes are for. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
Hard To Keep quotes by Robert Thier
#65. I am not a man who often expresses is emotions, Miss Linton."

"You don't say?"

"But I must admit I was... somewhat concerned for you."

I had to work hard to keep a smile from my face."

"Somewhat concerned? Dear God, really?"

Abruptly, he turned to me, his eyes blazing with cold fire. "Dammit! Do not joke, Miss Linton!"

I looked up at him, the picture of innocence drawn by a five-year-old with absolutely no artistic talent. "I wouldn't dare!"

Stepping towards me, he reached out, until one of his hands gently touched my cheek. "I..." He swallowed, and tried again. "I might be slightly... irrationally infatuated with you."

Warmth spread deep inside me. And on my face, a grin did. "Irrationally infatuated? Dear me!"

His jaw clenched. "All right, all right! I may even have certain... impulses towards you that border on caring about you."

"You don't say?" I raised an eyebrow at him. "Well, I am so glad to hear that you feel a certain amount of friendship towards me."

His dark gaze pierced me accusingly. But I was enjoying this far too much to stop. I wouldn't make it easy for him.

"Friendship is not the right word, Miss Linton," he bit out between clenched teeth, every word like a shard of burning ice. "My impulses towards you... they might go slightly beyond the platonic."

"Oh, so they are Aristotelian?"

"Mr Lin-" He swallowed, h #Quote by Robert Thier
Hard To Keep quotes by T.E. Carter
#66. Time, when you're young, doesn't pass in the same way. It feels endless. It's hard to keep track of how seasons change, of when days become months, because we fill time until there's nothing left of it. We fill it with parties and bonfires and school and sports and relationships and people, but it's never enough. Because there's so much time, we need to fill it entirely. Boredom frightens us. #Quote by T.E. Carter
Hard To Keep quotes by Ernie Harwell
#67. So much happened (in 1968) it was hard to keep up with everything. We had Denny McLain's thirty-one victories, Gates Brown's great pinch-hitting in the clutch, Tom Matchick's home run to beat Baltimore in the ninth inning, then Daryl Patterson striking out the side to beat them in the ninth. Excitement every day in the ballpark. #Quote by Ernie Harwell
Hard To Keep quotes by Al Capone
#68. Hell must be a pretty swell spot, because the guys that invented religion have sure been trying hard to keep everybody else out. #Quote by Al Capone
Hard To Keep quotes by Mariana Zapata
#69. It was about everything. About life and death, and white and black and gray. It was about having to be tough when you weren't used to it. About having to grow when you'd thought you were done growing. In the back of my head, I knew what I'd said didn't make any damn sense. But how could I explain? How could I begin to tell him that I had lost a part of myself with my brother's death, and I was trying so hard to keep what I had left together with duct tape and paper clips? #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Hard To Keep quotes by Lorelei James
#70. Back off, perv! I have a black belt in taekwondo
and I will fuck you up if you take another step toward
me."
Chase raised his hands in surrender, trying really,
really hard to keep his eyes on hers. "Whoa, there,
crouching tiger. Let's just take this down a notch. #Quote by Lorelei James
Hard To Keep quotes by Donnie Wahlberg
#71. It's not hard to keep up the image we chose. It's not hard to stay yourselves. #Quote by Donnie Wahlberg
Hard To Keep quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#72. It took me a moment. I blinked, and suddenly it swam into focus and I had to frown very hard to keep myself from giggling out loud like the schoolgirl Deb had accused me of being.
Because he had arranged the arms and legs in letters, and the letters spelled out a single small word: BOO.
The three torsos were carefully arranged below the BOO in a quarter-circle, making a cute little Halloween smile.
What a scamp. #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Hard To Keep quotes by Robertson Davies
#73. I think our love was all the better for being stretched out by our necessity to study hard to keep up with our work. To have all the time in the world to devote to love may be idyllic for a summer, but linked sweetness long drawn out is the greater luxury. [ ... ] During these summer absences, I longed for her, and wrote to her, and loved her more than ever, abstinence sharpening the appetite. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Hard To Keep quotes by Grace Slick
#74. I stopped dropping acid for a while after my daughter was born. It's hard to keep an eye on the kid while you're hallucinating. #Quote by Grace Slick
Hard To Keep quotes by Conditions
#75. I know most of the time it's hard to keep in mind - from lessons learned comes better life. #Quote by Conditions
Hard To Keep quotes by Jay Nixon
#76. So we have a tremendous amount of water where the two greatest rivers in North America meet. And then all of the tributaries from the various areas come in there also. It's also highly populated. So we're working a number of water rescues. We're working extremely hard to keep people safe and make sure that we're keeping the rule of law and keep people warm. It's been pretty cold. #Quote by Jay Nixon
Hard To Keep quotes by Laura Lippman
#77. My grandmother's parents had thought she was too good for my grandfather. They were Irish, shipworkers who had gotten the hell out of Locust Point and moved uptown, to Charles Village, where the houses were much bigger. They looked down on my grandfather just because he was where they once were. It killed them, the idea that their precious youngest daughter might move back to the neighborhood and live with an Italian, to boot. Everybody's got to look down on somebody. If there's not somebody below you, how do you know you've traveled any distance at all in your life? For my dad's generation, it was all about the blacks. I'm not saying it was right, just that it was, and it hung on because it was such a stark, visible difference. And now the rules have changed again, and it's the young people with money and ambition who are buying the houses in Locust Point, and the people in places like Linthicum and Catonsville and Arbutus are the ones to be pitied and condescended to. It's hard to keep up.

Hard To Keep quotes by Isabelle Joshua
#78. I feel a strong hand caress my inner elbow and his lips at my ear. "You look good dancing."
I turn and Alex and I share the same breathing space. It's hard to keep my eyes away from his mouth. "Really? I didn't realize you saw me."
He narrows his eyes briefly. "I see you. #Quote by Isabelle Joshua

#79. Forget the press - just being a partner of somebody who's very, very famous, it's hard to keep your center and your personality intact. #Quote by Patti Scialfa

Hard To Keep quotes by Brian Wayne Peterson
#81. It's main storytelling hell because it's really hard to keep a secret. It's really hard to not communicate. But I think that's what's great about this world is it's a world where he is off the grid, and for me, it's a way to step back. #Quote by Brian Wayne Peterson
Hard To Keep quotes by Jennifer Connelly
#82. It's so hard to keep perspective and keep things in context, and it's so easy to get distracted. This film [Shelter] reminded me how important it is to remain aware, and to keep seeing the things that are happening around the world. #Quote by Jennifer Connelly
Hard To Keep quotes by Jim Rohn
#83. It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Hard To Keep quotes by Val McDermid
#84. I don't like fighting,' he said. 'It makes me hurt inside. Like I'm a kid again. In the cupboard, in the dark. If the grown-ups are fighting, it must be my fault. That's why I don't do rows.' He blinked hard, to keep the tears at bay. She was the only person in the world who could make him feel so exposed. It din't always feel like a good thing. 'Carol, I'm going home tomorrow. I can't manage without you. Not in any sense. So can we stop this no? I can't do it. #Quote by Val McDermid
Hard To Keep quotes by Pete Lembo
#85. I really try hard to keep a good bead on the pulse of the team. Am I pushing the right buttons? When do I need to be harder on them? When do I need to have a little more fun with them? It's all about timing. The more I can do that the better chance we have for these guys to be hitting on all cylinders and reach their potential. #Quote by Pete Lembo

Hard To Keep quotes by Cynthia Hand
#88. Do you know how I think we should spend the first night of our honeymoon?" She asked in a soft, low voice.
For the first time since the announcement of their betrothal, G knew exactly how he wanted to spend the night. A pit of anxiety and anticipation formed in his stomach. He raised his eyebrows expectantly.
Her eyes got brighter, if that was possible. "I think we should raid our food cupboards and take some smoked meat down to the peasants who were attacked earlier!"
G worked hard to keep his face from falling. "My lady, you read my mind," he said, grateful that his lady could not read minds. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Hard To Keep quotes by Julia Quinn
#89. She was swaying slightly from side to side, and he could see her shoulders rise and fall with each shuddering breath.

He knew that sort of breath. It was the one you drew when you were trying so hard to keep your feelings inside, but you just weren't strong enough. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Hard To Keep quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#90. I looked at the ground and the dark, drizzling sky and pretty much anyplace that wasn't her. "I like you. A lot." When I finally glanced at her, my face was hot and it was hard to keep looking.
She squinted up at me. Then she crossed her arms. "This is a really inappropriate place to be having this conversation."
"I know. I like you anyway."
Saying it a third time was like breaking some kind of spell. Her face went soft and far away.
"Don't say that unless you mean it."
"I don't say anything I don't mean. #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff

Hard To Keep quotes by Austin Butler
#92. As soon as you start feeling like you can't trust the person and you need to check his phone or have his Facebook password or look through his messages - as soon as that trust barrier is broken - it's hard to keep a relationship going after that. #Quote by Austin Butler
Hard To Keep quotes by Andrew Klavan
#93. It can be crazy hard. To keep your faith, to keep going. It can be harder than I ever would have imagined. Sometimes things happen to you, really bad things that aren't fair, things that make you feel so terrible you're not even sure who you are anymore or whether you're right or wrong, good or bad. Sometimes you feel like there's no one to turn to, and you're all alone and so scared you can hardly move and so tired you just want to curl up in a ball and go to sleep forever. I guess that's kind of the way Alex felt that last night I saw him. And that's the way I felt now. But I guess I had one advantage over Alex. I guess in some way I'd been training for this time my whole life. I'd been training every day, even in simple things, little things. I trained to keep my mind sharp when I went to school. I trained in karate to keep my body and spirit strong. Even when I just went to church, or when I prayed by myself, it was a kind of training: I was training to remember that I was not alone. I was never alone. #Quote by Andrew Klavan

Hard To Keep quotes by James Mercer

Hard To Keep quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#99. My stomach growled again, even more loudly than the first time. I flushed in embarrassment.
Jack's brows lifted. "Sounds like you haven't eaten in days, Ella."
"I'm starving. I'm always hungry." I sighed. "The reason I eat vegan is because my boyfriend Dane does. I never feel full for more than twenty minutes, and it's hard to keep up my energy."
"Then why do you do it?"
"I like the health benefits. My cholesterol and blood pressure are really low. And my conscience feels better when I eat an animal-free diet."
"I know of some good remedies for an active conscience," he said.
"I'm sure you do."
"It sounds like if it weren't for your boyfriend, you'd be eating meat."
"Probably," I admitted. "But I agree with Dane's take on the issues, and most of the time it's not a problem for me. Unfortunately, I'm temptable."
"I like that in a woman. It almost makes up for your conscience."
-Jack & Ella #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Hard To Keep quotes by Richard Matheson
#100. But it was hard to keep his hands still. He could almost feel them twitching emphatically with his strong desire to reach out and stroke the dog's head. He had such a terrible yearning to love something again, and the dog was such a beautiful ugly dog. #Quote by Richard Matheson

Hard To Keep quotes by Mithun Chakraborty
#107. I would say the film world has stopped operating as one. We have divided it into Hindi movies, Bengali movies, Tamil movies and so on. Earlier, there was only one channel and we all knew what was going on. Today, it is hard to keep track of programmes due to the advent of regional channels. #Quote by Mithun Chakraborty

#111. It was very hard to keep a straight face when I had seen a glimpse of her 'oh-so-propah' husband in pink women's underwear. There were few glimpses I'd ever regretted seeing, but that one was at the top of my list. #Quote by Tyra Lynn

Hard To Keep quotes by Ken Jennings
#117. During the whole 'Jeopardy' experience, I felt like I was living a bit of a double life, I would be secretly flying out to L.A. to tape new shows, hoping that none of my coworkers would notice the absence and figure out what was going on. 'Jeopardy' tries very hard to keep their secrets. #Quote by Ken Jennings

Hard To Keep quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert

Hard To Keep quotes by Meredith Brooks
#122. I have so many plans! Sometimes it's hard to keep up because at this point it's just been me and the little bit of help my label gives me. #Quote by Meredith Brooks
Hard To Keep quotes by Guy Debord
#123. The erasure of the personality is the fatal accompaniment to an existence which is concretely submissive to the spectacle's rules, ever more removed from the possibility of authentic experience and thus from the discovery of individual preferences. Paradoxically, permanent self-denial is the price the
individual pays for the tiniest bit of social status. Such an existence demands a fluid fidelity, a succession of continually disappointing commitments to false products. It is a matter of running hard to keep up with the inflation of devalued signs of life. Drugs help one to come to terms with this state of affairs, while madness allows one to escape from it. #Quote by Guy Debord
Hard To Keep quotes by Trisha Goddard
#124. I work very hard to keep on an even keel as far as alcohol is concerned. #Quote by Trisha Goddard
Hard To Keep quotes by Rhidian Brook
#125. Lewis could feel something swelling inside him, at his sinuses and in his chest. He had worked hard to keep this ghost at bay, but now it was pressing in, coming to claim its dues. The tears were coming, and he had to swallow to hold them. He stood up. #Quote by Rhidian Brook
Hard To Keep quotes by Steven Soderbergh

Hard To Keep quotes by Gavin MacLeod
#128. Filming "The Love Boat" was exciting, but sometimes it was hard to keep track of where to show up for work. It all depended on the cut. Some of them were really on the ship. Some were really on the set. Like if they had the stars for a week, that was usually on the set, except if we were on location for that particular show. #Quote by Gavin MacLeod

Hard To Keep quotes by Darren Hogarth
#131. ....there'll be times in your life where it'll be hard to keep your faith. Times when you wonder why God is putting you through a particular trial. But you'll always look back and see clearly how you grew and learned about yourself, and sometimes you'll learn the nature of others.

Hard To Keep quotes by David Beckham
#132. I didn't expect it to come so quickly. It's been hard to keep up with. There's been articles in the papers that say I've got too big for my boots but people who know me say I'm just the same. Things have changed in my life but I haven't, too many people would knock me down if I did. #Quote by David Beckham

Hard To Keep quotes by Margrét Helgadóttir
#141. Your grandma is a magician. Remember that time when you fell off your bicycle and she lifted you up onto the kitchen counter? She cleaned your bloody knees, washed the tears and snot off your face, told you funny stories and tickled your stomach until you giggled so hard it made you hiccup. The tears, the blood, the pain, your mum's closed bedroom door - all vanished, as if your grandma had waved a wand - sim sala bim! Hard to keep your smile off your face now, no? She did such things. Still does. A trickster, she is. Always full of pranks and laughter. Like now, looking so wrinkled and pale in her bed, not responding. Bet she opens her eyes any moment now with that mischievous grin of hers, pleased she fooled you. You'll both double over in laughing fits. Any moment now.

Hard To Keep quotes by Thomas Morris
#145. I'm tired of waking up at 7 a.m. And I'm tired of making breakfast, getting dressed, brushing my teeth, walking to the bus, coming to school, going to lessons and stying there as the day grows darker. My legs are tired and my hips are tired, and my ankles are aching, and my head always feels like I've just done an exam. I find it hard to keep focused on a thought without thinking about thinking about that thought. And I'm finding it hard even talking to you now. And you know what I'm most tired of? Knowing that this is just the start, that I'll only get more tired as I get older, that I'll have a life of being ___ #Quote by Thomas Morris
Hard To Keep quotes by Kris Kidd
#146. Los Angeles has no seasons, so it's kind of hard to keep track of time here. The lines between spring, summer, fall, and winter all blur like my vision. I get stuck on repeat for different measures of eternity. #Quote by Kris Kidd
Hard To Keep quotes by Pearl Cleage
#147. Sometimes the contradictions in their lives are so intense they seem manufactured for teaching life lessons, but it's hard to keep up with what you're supposed to be learning in that terrible moment between defiance and despair when all your energy is going into figuring out why it took so long to name the thing that's driving you crazy. At those moments, the best I can do is keep quiet and say a little prayer, which is what I did. #Quote by Pearl Cleage
Hard To Keep quotes by Naomi Klein
#148. Climate change is like that; it's hard to keep it in your head for very long. We engage in this odd form of on-again-off-again ecological amnesia for perfectly rational reasons. We deny because we fear that letting in the full reality of this crisis will change everything. And we are right.5 #Quote by Naomi Klein
Hard To Keep quotes by Boo Weekley

Hard To Keep quotes by Woody Allen
#151. It's very hard to keep your spirits up. You've got to keep selling yourself a bill of goods, and some people are better at lying to themselves than others. If you face reality too much, it kills you ... you've got to find an answer to the question: Why go on? #Quote by Woody Allen
Hard To Keep quotes by Dianna Agron
#152. Having a dance background, I became used to rejection at an early age. Dance is very competitive, especially for a sensitive person like me. But I realized it's better not to take it so seriously. If you beat yourself up, it's hard to keep going. #Quote by Dianna Agron

Hard To Keep quotes by Henry Rollins
#157. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold onto something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because it's so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn't come back. You're left so alone that you can't explain. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Hard To Keep quotes by L.M. Montgomery

Hard To Keep quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#160. The wooden devil got a good laugh out of the ones who passed by, though. They were so funny she couldn't even feel sorry for them. They tried so hard to keep track of time. Whenever they were together they couldn't let sixty of their minutes pass without asking each other what time it was; as if time was a volatile currency that they either possessed or did not possess, when in fact time was more of a fog that rose inexorably over all their words and deeds so that they were either forgotten or misremembered. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Hard To Keep quotes by Rachel Platten
#161. I'd faced a lot of rejection from labels and the industry, and it was getting hard to keep believing in myself. But something wouldn't let me - inside - I had this voice that was relentlessly hopeful, and honestly, I just loved performing and writing too much to ever really quit. #Quote by Rachel Platten
Hard To Keep quotes by Lynn Kurland
#162. He was, and she had to swallow very hard to keep from choking, the most terribly beautiful man she had ever seen. He had a long, wicked scar that traveled from his temple down his cheek to the side of his chin and below his jaw. Somehow, though, it just didn't detract from his handsomeness, dark though that was. His face was all planes and angles, harsh even in the deepening gloom. His hair was dark and his eyes were full of cynicism. #Quote by Lynn Kurland
Hard To Keep quotes by Richard G. Scott
#163. Are there so many fascinating, exciting things to do or so many challenges pressing down upon you that it is hard to keep focused on that which is essential? When things of the world crowd in, all too often the wrong things take highest priority. Then it is easy to forget the fundamental purpose of life. Satan has a powerful tool to use against good people. It is distraction. He would have good people fill life with 'good things' so there is no room for the essential ones. Have you unconsciously been caught in that trap? #Quote by Richard G. Scott
Hard To Keep quotes by Katie Ashley
#164. I didn't know what it meant to have a nervous breakdown. I'd heard people jokingly exaggerate that they'd had one. Until that moment on my bathroom floor, I had no concept.

Then the frayed strands of my sanity that I'd fought so hard to keep together snapped in two, and I started to free fall into chaos.

First, I screamed.

I screamed and I screamed until I was hoarse. Then my screams turned over to cries of agony. Pain, both physical and emotional, consumed me. Will tried to console me, but it was useless. He panicked and called my parents.

When they heard my sobs in the background, they told him to call the paramedics. So he did. By the time they arrived, I was spent of emotions.

Instead, I lay motionless on the floor. They were a hazy blur of blue uniforms and soft voices. I could hear them calling my name from far off - like I was under the surface of water. But I couldn't muster the strength to reply. I heard crying behind me. It must've been Will because one of the paramedics said,

"Don't worry, son, we're gonna take good care of her."

Then I felt myself floating upwards as they put me on a gurney. I rattled and shook as they pulled me out of the house. The flashing lights hurt my eyes. But then a needle pierced my vein, bringing liquid peace to my soul."--Melanie #Quote by Katie Ashley
Hard To Keep quotes by Mariana Zapata
#165. I made it three days before the text messages started one afternoon while I was trying to finish warming up before our afternoon session. I had gotten to the LC later than usual and had gone straight to the training room, praising Jesus that I'd decided to change my clothes before leaving the diner once I'd seen what time it was and had remembered lunchtime traffic was a real thing. I was in the middle of stretching my hips when my phone beeped from where I'd left it on top of my bag. I took it out and snickered immediately at the message after taking my time with it.

Jojo: WHAT THE FUCK JASMINE

I didn't need to ask what my brother was what-the-fucking over. It had only been a matter of time. It was really hard to keep a secret in my family, and the only reason why my mom and Ben - who was the only person other than her who knew - had kept their mouths closed was because they had both agreed it would be more fun to piss off my siblings by not saying anything and letting them find out the hard way I was going to be competing again.

Life was all about the little things.

So, I'd slipped my phone back into my bag and kept stretching, not bothering to respond because it would just make him more mad.

Twenty minutes later, while I was still busy stretching, I pulled my phone out and wasn't surprised more messages appeared.

Jojo: WHY WOULD YOU NOT TELL ME

Jojo: HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME

But there is only one perfectly safe place for your kind, and you will not reach it until all your adventures are over and none of them matter any longer. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Hard To Keep quotes by Neal Stephenson
#169. He has reverted, in other words, back into a pure balls-to-the-wall nerdism rivaled only by his early game-coding days back in Seattle. The sheer depth and involution of the current nerdism binge would be hard to convey to anyone. Intellectually, he is juggling half a dozen lit torches, Ming vases, live puppies, and running chainsaws. In this frame of mind he cannot bring himself to give a shit about the fact that this incredibly powerful billionaire has gone to a lot of trouble to come and F2F with him. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Hard To Keep quotes by Marcin Batylda
#170. In time, the witchers' steel swords earned the name of "swords for men." A foul moniker, though not one conjured out of thin air. A good steel blade is indeed our first line of defense against mankind's hatred, stupidity, or greed. The world is full of those who would happily kill a witcher - out of resentment toward our trade, for fame, or simply to profit by snatching up our hard-earned coin. So the witchers, fully aware of the situation, never hesitated to relieve this world of the burden of dolts who were so thick headed as to threaten their lives. For that reason, in my day we called our steel swords "swords for fools." Unfortunately, seeing as how mendacious the two-faced scoundrels of bitches seem to rule this world, a great many fools have been apparently spared this selection process. #Quote by Marcin Batylda

Hard To Keep quotes by Stuart Wilde
#172. Next, take a look at the quality of the people who surround you. Do these people back you emotionally, or not? If they don't back you, are they at least passive? If not, get rid of them. Sometimes it is hard to drop off your mates at the great bus stop of life. But remember, your energy will only rise in direct relationship to the number of things you are able to get rid of - not to the things you acquire. By getting rid of things, attitudes, encumbrances, and blocks of one kind or another, things fly. #Quote by Stuart Wilde

#173. It is hard to communicate understanding because that is something you get by living with a problem for a long time. You study it, perhaps for years, you get the feel of it and it is in your bones. You can't convey that to anyone else. Having studied the problem for five years you may be able to present it in such a way that it would take somebody else less time to get to that point than it took you. But if they haven't struggled with the problem and seen all the pitfalls, then they haven't really understood it. #Quote by Michael Atiyah
Hard To Keep quotes by Mark Batterson
#174. Don't whine. Don't complain. And don't check out. Make the most of the situation. Do little things like they are big things. Keep a good attitude. And faithfully carry out your current obligations. If your job isn't exciting, then bring some excitement to the job. One of the greatest acts of worship is keeping a good attitude in a bad situation. And doing a good job at a bad job honors God. It will also open doors of opportunity down the road. It did for Nehemiah. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Hard To Keep quotes by Mohammed Hanif
#175. She tries to maintain a nondescript exterior; she learns the sideways glance instead of looking at people directly. She speaks in practised, precise sentences so that she is not misunderstood. She chooses her words carefully, and if someone addresses her in Punjabi, she answers in Urdu, because an exchange in her mother tongue might be considered a promise of intimacy. She uses English for medical terms only, because she feels if she uses a word of English in her conversation she might be considered a bit forward. When she walks she walks with slightly hurried steps, as if she has an important but innocent appointment to keep. She avoids eye contact, she looks slightly over people's heads as if looking out for somebody who might come into view at any moment. She doesn't want anyone to think that she is alone and nobody is coming for her. She sidesteps even when she sees a boy half her age walking towards her, she walks around little puddles when she can easily leap over them; she thinks any act that involves stretching her legs might send the wrong signal. After all, this is not the kind of thing where you can leave your actions to subjective interpretations. She never eats in public. Putting something in your mouth is surely an invitation for someone to shove something horrible down your throat. If you show your hunger, you are obviously asking for something. #Quote by Mohammed Hanif
Hard To Keep quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#176. How hard it is for people to live without someone to look down upon-really to look down upon. It is not just that they feel cheated out of someone to hate. It is that they are compelled to look more closely into themselves and what they don't like about themselves. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hard To Keep quotes by Veronica Roth
#177. Never forget to keep tension here, he says in a quiet voice. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Hard To Keep quotes by J.K. Rowling
#178. Dobby would never be able to tell them who had sent him to the cellar, but Harry knew what he had seen. A piercing blue eye had looked out of the mirror fragment, and then help had come. Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.
Harry dried his hands, impervious to the beauty of the scene outside the window and to the murmuring of the others in the sitting room. He looked out over the ocean and felt closer, this dawn, than ever before, closer to the heart of it all.
And still his scar prickled, and he knew that Voldemort was getting there too. Harry understood and yet did not understand. His instinct was telling him one thing, his brain quite another. The Dumbledore in Harry's head smiled, surveying Harry over the tips of his fingers, pressed together as if in prayer.
You gave Ron the Deluminator. You understood him…You gave him a way back…
And you understood Wormtail too…You knew there was a bit of regret there, somewhere…
And if you knew them…What did you know about me, Dumbledore?
Am I meant to know, but not to seek? Did you know how hard I'd find that? Is that why you made it this difficult? So I'd have time to work that out? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Hard To Keep quotes by Gautama Buddha
#179. The wise say that it is not an iron, wooden or fiber fetter which is a strong one, but the besotted hankering after trinkets, children and wives, that, say the wise, is the strong fetter. It drags one down, and loose as it feels, it is hard to break. Breaking this fetter, people renounce the world, free from longing and abandoning sensuality. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Hard To Keep quotes by Betty Rollin
#180. To be afraid is in a way to be hopeful, because to be afraid means that you haven't given up. You know it doesn't help, but you keep thrashing. The monster has you pinned to the wall, but you're not ready to say, 'Oh, hell, eat me. #Quote by Betty Rollin
Hard To Keep quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#181. It was one of those bitter mornings when the whole of nature is shiny, brittle, and hard, like crystal. The trees, decked out in frost, seem to have sweated ice; the earth resounds beneath one's feet; the tiniest sounds carry a long way in the dry air; the blue sky is bright as a mirror, and the sun moves through space in icy brilliance, casting on the frozen world rays which bestow no warmth upon anything. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Hard To Keep quotes by Janis Karpinski
#182. It's hard to be happy when you are facing 120 to 140 degree temperatures and nothing seems to be moving in a direction that you think or they think or you've been told it's supposed to be moving in. #Quote by Janis Karpinski
Hard To Keep quotes by David Foster Wallace
#183. It's not that students don't "get" Kafka's humor but that we've taught them to see humor as something you get
the same way we've taught them that a self is something you just have. No wonder they cannot appreciate the really central Kafka joke
that the horrific struggle to establish a human self results in a self whose humanity is inseparable from that horrific struggle. That our endless and impossible journey toward home is in fact our home. It's hard to put into words up at the blackboard, believe me. You can tell them that maybe it's good they don't "get" Kafka. You can ask them to imagine his art as a kind of door. To envision us readers coming up and pounding on this door, pounding and pounding, not just wanting admission but needing it, we don't know what it is but we can feel it, this total desperation to enter, pounding and pushing and kicking, etc. That, finally, the door opens ... and it opens outward: we've been inside what we wanted all along. Das ist komisch. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Hard To Keep quotes by Barack Obama
#184. We are not going to keep the window open forever. #Quote by Barack Obama
Hard To Keep quotes by J.K. Rowling
#185. Oh, don't lie, Harry," she said impatiently. "Ron and Ginny say you've been hiding from everyone since you got back from St. Mungo's."
"They do, do they?" said Harry, glaring at Ron and Ginny. Ron looked down at his feet but Ginny seemed quite unabashed.
"Well, you have!" she said. "And you won't look at any of us!"
"It's you lot who won't look at me!" said Harry angrily.
"Maybe you're taking it in turns to look and keep missing each other," suggested Hermione, the corners of her mouth twitching. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Hard To Keep quotes by Kathy B. Steele
#186. Her skirts are long and don't seem to have straight hems, and her shirts are loose and hang over the skirts, so it's hard to see where one ends and the other begins. But with her children, she has clear control. They flow around her like her long skirts, flapping away and returning. Karen knows they will return to her side, like a magnet assured of its eternal attraction to tiny metal filings. #Quote by Kathy B. Steele
Hard To Keep quotes by Donald L. Hicks
#187. Happiness and Unhappiness are not things that just happen to you, they are a choice. They are a perspective.
Smile, and think about that for a moment. Now smile some more.
Not that hard is it? #Quote by Donald L. Hicks
Hard To Keep quotes by Frederick The Great
#188. I think it better to keep a profound silence with regard to the Christian fables, which are canonized by their antiquity and the credulity of absurd and insipid people. #Quote by Frederick The Great
Hard To Keep quotes by Erica Brown
#189. I took to religion at about age 12; it was very hard for me to be Sabbath observant as a kid in a home which was not Sabbath observant. I think my parents thought the whole Jewish thing was a phase. #Quote by Erica Brown
Hard To Keep quotes by Paul Bloom
#190. A sympathetic parent might see the spark of consciousness in a baby's large eyes and eagerly accept the popular claim that babies are wonderful learners, but it is hard to avoid the impression that they begin as ignorant as bread loaves. #Quote by Paul Bloom
Hard To Keep quotes by Elliott Chaze
#191. In tennis the addict moves about a hard rectangle and seeks to ambush a fuzzy ball with a modified snow-shoe. #Quote by Elliott Chaze
Hard To Keep quotes by Keith Shackleton
#192. I would warn very sincerely against the pitfalls of copying photographs. A frozen, split-second bears little relationship to the continuing process of living reality. It is better to look, look again, and keep on looking. #Quote by Keith Shackleton
Hard To Keep quotes by Robert J. Sawyer
#193. The right things to do are those that keep our violence in abeyance; the wrong things are those that bring it to the fore. #Quote by Robert J. Sawyer
Hard To Keep quotes by Hillary Clinton
#194. I've often thought that when something is hard for you, whether it's going to law school or anything else that challenges you, that's probably what you should do. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Hard To Keep quotes by Jessica Biel
#195. As much as I hate auditioning - it's so hard and awkward - it's way better to walk out of that room and win a role because of what you did. #Quote by Jessica Biel
Hard To Keep quotes by Hans Christian Andersen
#196. Then your tail will divide and shrink until it becomes what the people on earth call a pair of shapely legs. But it will hurt; it will feel as if a sharp sword slashed through you. Everyone who sees you will say that you are the most graceful human being they have ever laid eyes on, for you will keep your gliding movement and no dancer will be able to tread as lightly as you. But every step you take will feel as if you were treading upon knife blades so sharp that blood must flow. I am willing to help you, but are you willing to suffer all this?"
"Yes," the little mermaid said in a trembling voice, as she thought of the Prince and of gaining a human soul. #Quote by Hans Christian Andersen
Hard To Keep quotes by Andy Rooney
#197. Republicans ... are conservatives who think it would be best if we faced the fact that people are no damned good. They think that if we admit that we have selfish, acquisitive natures and then set out to get all we can for ourselves by working hard for it, that things will be better for everyone. They are not insensitive to the poor, but tend to think the poor are impoverished because they won't work. They think there would be fewer of them to feel sorry for if the government did not encourage the proliferation of the least fit among us with welfare programs. #Quote by Andy Rooney
Hard To Keep quotes by Joby Warrick
#198. After spending time in the East and meeting with ordinary Afghans there, it's hard to imagine how a future Afghan government will retain control of provinces such as Khost or Paktia once U.S. forces are gone. #Quote by Joby Warrick
Hard To Keep quotes by Anonymous
#199. 8The LORD says, I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.+ 9Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control. #Quote by Anonymous
Hard To Keep quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#200. Singaporeans, if I can chose an analogy, we are the hard disk of a computer, the foreign talent are the megabytes you add to your storage capacity. So your computer never hangs because you got enormous storage capacity. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Hard To Keep quotes by Alexander The Great
#201. Our enemies are Medes and Persians, men who for centuries have lived soft and luxurious lives; we of Macedon for generations past have been trained in the hard school of danger and war. Above all, we are free men, and they are slaves. There are Greek troops, to be sure, in Persian service - but how different is their cause from ours! They will be fighting for pay - and not much of at that; we, on the contrary, shall fight for Greece, and our hearts will be in it. As for our foreign troops - Thracians, Paeonians, Illyrians, Agrianes - they are the best and stoutest soldiers in Europe, and they will find as their opponents the slackest and softest of the tribes of Asia. And what, finally, of the two men in supreme command? You have Alexander, they - Darius! #Quote by Alexander The Great
Hard To Keep quotes by H.L. Mencken
#202. Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Hard To Keep quotes by Isla Fisher
#203. I think there's a lack of quality roles for women in comedies. Most actresses get cast as the "eye-roller" or "the serious one," while men in comedies get to do all the fun, silly stuff and muck around. Sometimes you just have to search hard for a role or create one for yourself. #Quote by Isla Fisher
Hard To Keep quotes by Jarod Kintz
#204. A brick could be used as a puzzle. See if you can correctly add up the number of sides. If you keep getting the number seven, try consulting a psychologist - or a numerologist. Incidentally, I just so happen to be the latter, so feel free to give me a call. But don't feel too free, because my services are most certainly not free. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Hard To Keep quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#205. The tectonic layers of our lives rest so tightly one on top of the other that we always come up against earlier events in later ones, not as matter that has been fully formed and pushed aside, but absolutely present and alive. I understand this. Nonetheless, I sometimes find it hard to bear. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Hard To Keep quotes by Isaac Newton
#206. One [method] is by a Watch to keep time exactly. But, by reason of the motion of the Ship, the Variation of Heat and Cold, Wet and Dry, and the Difference of Gravity in different Latitudes, such a watch hath not yet been made. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Hard To Keep quotes by Maelle Gavet
#207. I tell my colleagues that it is actually all right to make mistakes, and I am worried when they do not make them, because it means that they either hide them from me or are not trying hard enough. #Quote by Maelle Gavet
Hard To Keep quotes by Steve Voake
#208. Well, we all like things to be predictable, don't we? We expect things to be safe and to keep on happening just the way they always have. We expect the sun to rise in the morning. We expect to get up, survive the day and finish up back in bed at the end of it, ready to start all over again the next day. But maybe that's just a trick we play on ourselves, our way of making life seem ordinary. Because the truth is, life is so extraordinary that for most of hte time we can't bring ourselves to look at it. It's too bright and it hurts our eyes. The fact of the matter is that nothing is ever certain. But most people never find that out until the ground suddenly disappears from beneath their feet. #Quote by Steve Voake
Hard To Keep quotes by Jeffery Deaver
#209. I also try very hard to create characters - both heroes and villains - with psychological depth. #Quote by Jeffery Deaver
