Has Beens quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#21. It has been observed before that images, however beautiful, though faithfully copied from nature, and as accurately represented in words, do not of themselves characterize the poet. They become proofs of original genius only as far as they are modified by a predominant passion; or by associated thoughts or images awakened by that passion; or when they have the effect of reducing multitude to unity, or succession to an instant; or lastly, when a human and intellectual life is transferred to them from the poet's spirit. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Has Beens quotes by Janet Jackson
#24. There are artists, true performers that have come before me who have been a big inspiration to me. I hope I do the same for others. #Quote by Janet Jackson
Has Beens quotes by David Jeremiah

Has Beens quotes by R.D. Laing
#26. The schizophrenic may indeed be mad. He is mad. He is not ill. I have been told by people who have been through the mad experience how what was then revealed to them was veritable manna from Heaven. The person's whole life may be changed, but it is difficult not to doubt the validity of such vision. Also, not everyone comes back to us again. #Quote by R.D. Laing

Has Beens quotes by Jeff Stelling
#32. Gareth Jellyman of Mansfield Town has been sent off, hope he doesn't throw a wobbly! #Quote by Jeff Stelling

Has Beens quotes by James Frain
#34. I would want to keep that in a little glass sphere, perhaps in the corner of my living room, lit up. But, I think that's an extremely expensive rig. The costumes were crazy expensive, beyond anything they could afford to give you, to take away. They're going to be in a museum of some kind, on display until they get the go for Tron: Legacy 2. It would have been awesome to keep, though. I don't think there was anything that they could afford to let go. I probably would have been arrested. #Quote by James Frain
Has Beens quotes by Julius Nyerere
#35. Having come into contact with a civilization which has over-emphasized the freedom of the individual, we are in fact faced with one of the big problems of Africa in the modern world. Our problem is just this: how to get the benefits of European society - benefits that have been brought about by an organization based upon the individual - and yet retain African's own structure of society in which the individual is a member of a kind of fellowship. #Quote by Julius Nyerere
Has Beens quotes by Johnny Depp
#36. My experience with Sondheim has been nothing but glorious, especially for a guy who doesn't sing. #Quote by Johnny Depp
Has Beens quotes by John Medina
#37. Though we have been stuffing them into classrooms and cubicles for decades, our brains actually were built to survive in jungles and grasslands.

Has Beens quotes by Goldie Hawn
#38. Letting go of someone we love is the hardest thing we will ever do. Some people never surrender to love for the fear of being hurt. But to not have loved, to not have felt the immense joy it brings, would have been a far worse kind of death. #Quote by Goldie Hawn
Has Beens quotes by Archimedes
#39. Spoken of the young Archimedes: ... [he] was as much enchanted by the rudiments of algebra as he would have been if I had given him an engine worked by steam, with a methylated spirit lamp to heat the boiler; more enchanted, perhaps for the engine would have got broken, and, remaining always itself, would in any case have lost its charm, while the rudiments of algebra continued to grow and blossom in his mind with an unfailing luxuriance. Every day he made the discovery of something which seemed to him exquisitely beautiful; the new toy was inexhaustible in its potentialities. #Quote by Archimedes
Has Beens quotes by Robert Fisk
#40. Even my landlord, who is a moderate Lebanese guy, says, "But bin Laden says what we think." These people believe that bin Laden is being targeted not because of the World Trade Center and Washington; they are not convinced by the evidence that has been produced. They believe he's being targeted because he tells the truth. #Quote by Robert Fisk
Has Beens quotes by Sean Combs
#41. Fans made me. The fans gave me a chance, and they made me. Beyond that, my career has been trials and tribulations and ups and downs, so I have to have true fans riding with me. #Quote by Sean Combs
Has Beens quotes by Cornelia Otis Skinner
#42. It is disturbing to discover in oneself these curious revelations of the validity of the Darwinian theory. If it is true that we have sprung from the ape, there are occasions when my own spring appears not to have been very far. #Quote by Cornelia Otis Skinner
Has Beens quotes by Joan Miro
#43. My characters have undergone the same process of simplification as the colors. Now that they have been simplified, they appear more human and alive than if they had been represented in all their details. #Quote by Joan Miro
Has Beens quotes by Charles Dance
#44. Because [writers] Dan Weiss and David Benioff have done such a great job in adapting them, that's what we work with. It serves no purpose to anybody for actors to come onto a set with a well-thumbed copy of the source material and start querying why this or that line has been left out of the script. It's probably been left out for a good reason. #Quote by Charles Dance
Has Beens quotes by Jeff Koons
#45. I'm interested in power. I'm interested in the kind of polarities and equilibriums that take place within sexuality and philosophy and sociology. So in Versailles, in this type of setting, you have a place that is about absolute control, where everything has been thought about. #Quote by Jeff Koons
Has Beens quotes by Orson Scott Card
#46. It has been my experience that the better a man you are, the more folks there are who resent you for it, and find occasion to get angry at you no matter how kindly meant your deeds may be. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Has Beens quotes by Daddy Yankee
#47. 'Limbo' has been one of the greatest hits of my career. A great response all over the world, not just Latinos but people in Europe and America. #Quote by Daddy Yankee
Has Beens quotes by Voltaire
#48. Needless to say since Christ's expiation not one single Christian has been known to sin, or die. #Quote by Voltaire
Has Beens quotes by Nicole Krauss
#49. She was gone, and all that was left was the space you'd grown around her, like a tree that grows around a fence. For a long time, it remained hollow. Years, maybe. And when at last it was filled again, you knew that the new love you felt for a woman would have been impossible without Alma. If it weren't for her, there would never have been an empty space, or the need to fill it. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Has Beens quotes by Leo Ornstein
#50. I think there have been some periods when the writing almost became a bit of a burden. #Quote by Leo Ornstein

Has Beens quotes by Jacques Delors

Has Beens quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#60. Someone once asked me what I regarded as the three most important requirements for happiness. My answer was: A feeling that you have been honest with yourself and those around you; a feeling that you have done the best you could both in your personal life and in your work; and the ability to love others. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Has Beens quotes by Henry Watson Fowler
#61. Quotation ... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium. #Quote by Henry Watson Fowler
Has Beens quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#62. How right it is to love flowers and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh

Has Beens quotes by John Templeton
#68. Anybody who had come up with a new concept would have been under suspicion for being out of step with the tradition or out of step with the teachings of the church. #Quote by John Templeton
Has Beens quotes by Chris Paul

Has Beens quotes by Megan Hart
#73. This is the truth. I have been in love. I have been in lust. I've made good choices and bad ones, I have been smart and I've been stupid. But I have never in my life felt the way I do now, here, with Will. #Quote by Megan Hart
Has Beens quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#74. To become wise you have to want to experience certain experiences, and so to run into their open jaws. This is very dangerous, tobe sure; many a "wise man" has been eaten up in doing so. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Has Beens quotes by Richard Benjamin
#77. If I were an immigrant Latino not born in the US, I could not have written Searching for Whitopia: An Improbably Journey to the Heart of America book. And that is because many of the Whitopians would not have been comfortable talking about their views on immigration, talking about their views on taxes. And they wouldn't have spilled to me the new script on race and poverty as they did. #Quote by Richard Benjamin

Has Beens quotes by Dan Cutforth
#80. I think it's really hard to say now what makes a show kind of sink or swim, and what creates longevity. For instance, I think that Survivor is a very well produced show. It's very simple, it's very elemental, and I think it gets into big issues. I think American Idol has been an amazing show for many, many seasons. #Quote by Dan Cutforth
Has Beens quotes by Dane Cook
#81. I'm sure that people who have been tweeting funny things have ended up on writing staffs of a late night show. #Quote by Dane Cook

#83. There's no denying that the way horror has been packaged in the past has done it no favours. Lurid black covers adorned with skulls, corpses crawling with insects and scantily clad maidens being chewed into by vampires
all good clean fun, but it doesn't do much to give the genre an air of respectability or seriousness to the casual browser. #Quote by Tim Lebbon
Has Beens quotes by JJ Feild
#84. Every penny I've ever saved has been spent on airline tickets to different corners of the world. #Quote by JJ Feild
Has Beens quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#85. I remember, when I have preached at different times in the country, and sometimes here, that my whole soul has agonized over men, every nerve of my body has been strained and I could have wept my very being out of my eyes and carried my whole frame away in a flood of tears, if I could but win souls #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Has Beens quotes by Mary Jo Bang
#86. You are reduced / To the after-sorrow / That will last my lifetime. The hair-tearing / Grief of the mother / Whose child has been swept away. #Quote by Mary Jo Bang
Has Beens quotes by Xavi
#87. Leo [Messi] is the best player of all time - better than Pele, Maradona or Cruyff. There have been some great teams in history - Pele's Brazil, Cruyff's Ajax, Sacchi's Milan - but in the past 20 years this Barcelona team is the best. #Quote by Xavi
Has Beens quotes by Robert L. Reymond
#88. Man in his raw, natural state as he comes from the womb is morally and spiritually corrupt in disposition and character. Every part of his being-his mind, his will, his emotions, his affections, his conscience, his body-has been affected by sin (this is what is meant by the doctrine of total depravity) #Quote by Robert L. Reymond
Has Beens quotes by Stephen Vincent Benet
#89. Ironically the blog has re-opened the essay as a good form for me. I like to look and make commentary! If I sense my essays are good, I try to resubmit to another place in pulp and several of them have been variously published in newspapers and magazines. #Quote by Stephen Vincent Benet

#90. I love my daughter. She and I have shared my body. There is a part of her mind that is a part of mine. But when she was born, she sprang from me like a slippery fish, and has been swimming away ever since. #Quote by Amy Tan

#91. I have been to the darkest corners of government, and what they fear is light. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Has Beens quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#92. There has been something crude and heartless and unfeeling in our haste to suceed and be great. Our thought has been 'Let every man look out for himself, let every generation look out for itself,' while we reared giant machinery which made it impossible that any but those who stood at the levers of control should have a chance to look out for themselves. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Has Beens quotes by Thomas Francis Meagher
#93. The treason of which I stand convicted loses all its guilt, has been sanctified as a duty, and will be ennobled as a sacrifice. #Quote by Thomas Francis Meagher
Has Beens quotes by Bertrand Russell
#94. For over two thousand years it has been the custom among earnest moralists to decry happiness as something degraded and unworthy #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Has Beens quotes by Laurence Sterne
#95. Upon looking back from the end of the last chapter and surveying the texture of what has been wrote, it is necessary, that upon this page and the five following, a good quantity of heterogeneous matter be inserted, to keep up that just balance betwixt wisdom and folly, without which a book would not hold together a single year. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Has Beens quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#96. In truth,there was only one christian and he died on the cross. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Has Beens quotes by C.S. Lewis

Has Beens quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#100. The many pro-surveillance advocates I have debated since Snowden blew the whistle have been quick to echo Eric Schmidt's view that privacy is for people who have something to hide. But none of them would willingly give me the passwords to their email accounts, or allow video cameras in their homes. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Has Beens quotes by Cornel West
#101. I have some notions that have people conceiving of themselves as capable of changing the world. That's why, for me, the issues of self-love, self-respect and self-regard are preconditions for human agency and especially black agency, given the fact that we have been and are such a hated and despised people. #Quote by Cornel West
Has Beens quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#102. When I was six I had a chicken that walked backward and was in the Pathe News. I was in it too with the chicken. I was just there to assist the chicken but it was the high point in my life. Everything since has been anticlimax.
#Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Has Beens quotes by Ivan Illich
#103. School divides life into two segments, which are increasingly of comparable length. As much as anything else, schooling implies custodial care for persons who are declared undesirable elsewhere by the simple fact that a school has been built to serve them. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Has Beens quotes by Alan Bennett
#104. If, for instance, we'd made the film after the show had been to Broadway, it would have been exactly the same film but we would have been assured that they would have understood it. We didn't have to do any alterations for Broadway. I was supposed to go a fortnight before it opened to alter anything that was necessary and there was nothing really. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Has Beens quotes by Joseph Boyden
#105. During World War I the Canadians were the shock troops. In many historical cases, Canadians have been very proficient at killing, and doing what we have to in order to survive. But no one wants to acknowledge that fact. #Quote by Joseph Boyden
Has Beens quotes by Edith Sitwell
#106. My temper is not spoilt. I am absolutely non-homicidal. Nor do I ever attack unless I have been attacked first, and then Heaven have mercy upon the attacker, because I don't! I just sharpen my wits on a wooden head as a cat sharpens its claws on the wood legs of a table. #Quote by Edith Sitwell
Has Beens quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#107. We should say to the West: "You have been supporting dictators for too many years. Don't expect the people to introduce democracy over night. It is going to take time." It took time with the French revolution, it took time with the Eastern European revolutions. And it is going to take time there. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Has Beens quotes by Alexander Ostrovsky
#108. To pronounce something clever and honest is not such a big deal, lots of them have been said and written. For a statement of truth to be effective and for it to make people wiser, it has to be filtered through the soul of a highest quality, the soul of an artist. #Quote by Alexander Ostrovsky
Has Beens quotes by Saint Augustine
#109. When regard for truth has been broken down or even slightly weakened, all things will remain doubtful. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Has Beens quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#110. If you want to say something truly new, you must first know everything that has been said in the human history; not half, not ninety percent, but all that has been said! Only then you can say something new, if you can! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan

Has Beens quotes by William H. Whyte
#115. We have been the most prodigal of people with land, and for years we wasted it with impunity. There was so much of it, and no matter how we fouled it, there was always more over the next hill, or so it seemed. #Quote by William H. Whyte
Has Beens quotes by Chuck Todd
#116. This deep insecurity has been going on for a while. I mean I picked it up in 2014 sitting in focus groups of women who were feeling terrified, not just about that ISIS was coming, but terrified that their children couldn't be safe at school, terrified about what was happening in Ferguson and other places. #Quote by Chuck Todd
Has Beens quotes by Steve Jobs
#117. I know from my own education that if I hadn't encountered two or three individuals that spent extra time with me, I'm sure I would have been in jail. #Quote by Steve Jobs

Has Beens quotes by Rupert Brooke
#119. I have been so great a lover: filled my days So proudly with the splendour of Love's praise, The pain, the calm, and the astonishment, Desire illimitable, and silent content, And all dear names men use, to cheat despair, For the perplexed and viewless streams that bear Our hearts at random down the dark of life. #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Has Beens quotes by Paul Fry
#120. The mantra of the new historicists was "we have betrayed ourselves." Since their emergence, there have been more or less interesting paradigm shifts having mainly to do with Habermas and the increased focus on media studies, but the talismanic word has never ceased to be "history." #Quote by Paul Fry
Has Beens quotes by Jim Barksdale
#121. I think we're proving ourselves as we go along. The past several months our strategy has been evolutionary - making maximum advantage of our client browser, as well as our enterprise software for people who want to build Web sites. #Quote by Jim Barksdale
Has Beens quotes by Liz Garbus
#122. If you look at the gifted sportsman, like Tiger Woods, or Ryan Giggs, you can see how they have been built up to be so much more than one person could ever be. #Quote by Liz Garbus
Has Beens quotes by Ric O'Barry
#123. In a world where so much that is wild and free has been lost to us, we must leave these beautiful animals free to swim as they will and must. They do us no harm and wish us none and we should let them alone. #Quote by Ric O'Barry
Has Beens quotes by Charles Deems
#124. The Lord's Supper has been greatly instrumental in keeping His cause alive. It is the voice of all believers preaching the Lord's death till He come. He who believes that the Lord did come and die for us, and will come again and take us to Himself, and will not hesitate to regard this last request of our Lord and Saviour. #Quote by Charles Deems
Has Beens quotes by Dorothy Parker
#125. I know that ridicule may be a shield, but it is not a weapon. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Has Beens quotes by John Steinbeck
#126. The church and the whorehouse arrived in the Far West simultaneously. And each would have been horrified to think it was a different facet of the same thing. But surely they were both intended to accomplish the same thing: the singing, the devotion, the poetry of the churches took a man out of his bleakness for a time, and so did the brothels. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Has Beens quotes by Bill Bryson
#127. Science has been quite embattled. It's the most important thing there is. An arts graduate is not going to fix global warming. They may do other valuable things, but they are not going to fix the planet or cure cancer or get rid of malaria. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Has Beens quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#128. What has been attained may again be lost. Only when you realise the true peace, the peace you have never lost, that peace will remain with you for it was never away. Instead of searching for what you do not have, find out what is it that you have never lost. That which is there before the beginning and after the ending of everything, to That there is no birth nor death. That Immovable state, which is not affected by the birth and death of a body or a mind, that state you must perceive. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Has Beens quotes by Derrick Jensen
#129. From the beginning, this culture - civilization - has been a culture of occupation. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Has Beens quotes by Mitch Daniels
#130. We say that anytime budgets are balanced and an ample savings account has been set aside, government should just stop collecting taxes. Better to leave that money in the pockets of those who earned it, than to let it burn a hole, as it always does, in the pockets of government. #Quote by Mitch Daniels
Has Beens quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#131. I compare myself with my former self, not with others. Not only that, I tend to compare my current self with the best I have been, which is when I have been midly manic. When I am my present "normal" self, I am far removed from when I have been my liveliest, most productive, most intense, most outgoing and effervescent. In sort, for myself, I am a hard act to follow. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Has Beens quotes by Jackie Kessler
#132. If Melissa Miller were an artist, she would have painted the world in vicious streaks of red. Nothing like Picasso's rose period, all soft and cheerful and so optimistic that it made you want to puke. Missy's red phase would have been brutal and bright enough to cut your eyes. Missy's art would have been honest. #Quote by Jackie Kessler
Has Beens quotes by Dylan McDermott
#133. I've tried like hell to make bad movies good, and I can't. Maybe Marlon Brando has been able to do that at times. But even he has a hard time making 'The Appaloosa' a good movie. #Quote by Dylan McDermott
Has Beens quotes by Wendell Berry
#134. The river and the garden have been the foundations of my economy here. Of the two I have liked the river best. It is wonderful to have the duty of being on the river the first and last thing every day. I have loved it even in the rain. Sometimes I have loved it most in the rain. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Has Beens quotes by George Saunders
#135. When I was a kid, I took 'The Brady Bunch' and 'The Partridge Family' very seriously. It was a world to me in the same way that the Greek myths would have been had I read them. You know, Marcia is Athena and Mr. Brady is Zeus. #Quote by George Saunders
Has Beens quotes by Jay Leno
#136. A man in Florida has been arrested for wearing a President Obama mask while robbing a McDonald's. To show you how good this guy's disguise was, instead of a holdup note he was reading from a teleprompter. #Quote by Jay Leno
Has Beens quotes by Anna Wickham
#137. I feel that women of my kind are a profound mistake. There have been few women poets of distinction, and, if we count only the suicides of Sappho, Lawrence Hope and Charlotte Mew, their despair rate has been very high. #Quote by Anna Wickham
Has Beens quotes by Wayne Huizenga
#138. Our philosophy has been to be fiscally conservative, so we can be operationally aggressive. We're not using borrowed money to grow. So we'll put up a store just to get there before the competition. If it doesn't work, we'll close it and lose a little equity. It won't kill us. #Quote by Wayne Huizenga
Has Beens quotes by Hillary Clinton
#139. All of us have to recognize that we owe our children more than we have been giving them. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Has Beens quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#140. As you grow older and young people come up to you with their history books, you realize that some of the things I have been able to do have been impactful. But for me, I try to keep everything in perspective and stay humble. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Has Beens quotes by Joanna Newsom
#141. Lyrics are very different. There is a clear line between that and a poem. Something that has been a source of great excitement and delight for me is this idea that I get to rhyme. #Quote by Joanna Newsom
Has Beens quotes by Louis L'Amour
#142. I have been nothing ... but there is tomorrow. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Has Beens quotes by Emanuel Lasker
#143. By some ardent enthusiasts Chess has been elevated into a science or an art. It is neither; but its principal characteristic seems to be - what human nature mostly delights in - a fight. #Quote by Emanuel Lasker
Has Beens quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#144. How grateful we are that the heavens are indeed open, that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored, and that the Church is founded on the rock of revelation. We are a blessed people, with apostles and prophets upon the earth today. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Has Beens quotes by John Muir
#145. Books are but steeping stones to show you where other minds have been. #Quote by John Muir
Has Beens quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#146. You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Has Beens quotes by Jonathan Swift
#147. In all assemblies, though you wedge them ever so close, we may observe this peculiar property, that over their heads there is room enough; but how to reach it is the difficult point. To this end the philosopher's way in all ages has been by erecting certain edifices in the air. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Has Beens quotes by David Berlinski
#148. At the beginning of the new millennium, we still do not know why mathematics is true and whether it is certain. But we know what we do not know in an immeasurably richer way than we did. And learning this has been a remarkable achievement-among the greatest and least-known of the modern era. #Quote by David Berlinski
Has Beens quotes by Milan Kundera
#149. God has been kind to dogs in no putting a sense of beauty into their heads. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Has Beens quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#150. I assume that to prevent illness in later life, you should never have been born at all. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Has Beens quotes by Jerome Liebling
#151. These days it seems that physical truth can easily be rearranged, rethought, or re-created outright. Any image can be made pristine, all the warts can be removed. But returning to the source of a thing - the real source - means the photographer has to watch, dig, listen for voices, sniff the smells, and have many doubts. My life in photography has been lived as a skeptic. #Quote by Jerome Liebling
Has Beens quotes by Sharon Gannon
#152. Don't wait for a better world. Start now to create a world of harmony and peace. It is up to you, and it always has been. You may even find the solution at the end of your fork. #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Has Beens quotes by John Hodgman
#153. I am someone who values truth - actual truth as opposed to 'truthiness.' #Quote by John Hodgman
Has Beens quotes by Ted Cruz
#154. While there may have been an age difference, Josh Duggar's transgressions are far less an affront to God than what gays do with each other. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Has Beens quotes by Helen Keller
#155. He who is content with what has been done is an obstacle in the path of progress. #Quote by Helen Keller
Has Beens quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#156. We are not judged by what we are basically. We are judged by how hard we use what we have been given. Success means nothing to the Lord. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Has Beens quotes by Jim Gerlach
#157. Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities. #Quote by Jim Gerlach
Has Beens quotes by J.R. Ward
#158. If sex were food, Rhage would have been morbidly obese. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Has Beens quotes by Phoebe Cary
#159. One sweetly solemn thought, comes to me o'er and o'er; I am nearer home today, than I ever have been before. #Quote by Phoebe Cary
Has Beens quotes by George Washington
#160. My aim has been ... to keep the United States ... independent of all and under the influence of none. #Quote by George Washington
Has Beens quotes by Mary Potter
#161. I cannot but feel I have had a call from God to devote myself to help save souls in their last hour ...
I have been drawn so strongly to pray for the dying and I believe it to be a work appointed for me, perpetual prayer for the dying. #Quote by Mary Potter
Has Beens quotes by Jill Shalvis
#162. I'm already yours. Always have been. All you have to do is step into the ring. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Has Beens quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#163. Hence it comes that all armed prophets have been victorious, and all unarmed prophets have been destroyed. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Has Beens quotes by Elon Musk
#164. My motivation for all my companies has been to be involved in something that I thought would have a significant impact on the world. #Quote by Elon Musk
Has Beens quotes by Jim Garrison
#165. It has been my policy not to respond to each of the many canards which have been part of the campaign to discredit my investigation, nor to waste time trying to prove negatives. #Quote by Jim Garrison
Has Beens quotes by Cesar Millan
#166. My dogs have been my most loyal friends and constant companions. #Quote by Cesar Millan
Has Beens quotes by Dan Barker
#167. The longer I have been an atheist, the more amazed I am that I ever believed Christian notions. #Quote by Dan Barker
Has Beens quotes by Don Herold
#168. If I had my life to live over, I would try to make more mistakes. I would relax. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I know of very few things that I would take seriously. I would be less hygienic. I would go more places. I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less spinach. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary troubles. #Quote by Don Herold
Has Beens quotes by Jeremy Jackson
#169. Most cornmeal producers don't tell you when their cornmeal was milled, which makes it difficult to know how long the product has been sitting in the store before you bought it. #Quote by Jeremy Jackson
Has Beens quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#170. In this dynamic rivalry between house and universe, we are far removed from any reference to simple geometrical forms. A house that has been experienced is not an inert box. Inhabited space transcends geometrical space. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Has Beens quotes by Kevin Costner
#171. I don't think I'd have been as good as Bruce was. He was a better JFK than I would have been. #Quote by Kevin Costner
Has Beens quotes by Maynard James Keenan
#172. Do unto others what has been done to you, #Quote by Maynard James Keenan
Has Beens quotes by Frankie Boyle
#173. The owners of a dog which swallowed a diamond worth £12000 had to wait three days until it re-emerged. With a bit of planning it could have been a nice way to propose. #Quote by Frankie Boyle
Has Beens quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#174. But hey, what's life without a little adversity?
That had to have been the fakest attempt at optimism since my fourth grade teacher tried reasoning that we were better off without the dead kids in our class because it'd mean more turns on the playground swings for the rest of us. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Has Beens quotes by Noam Chomsky
#175. Evaluating countries is senseless and I would never put things in those terms, but that some of America's advances, particularly in the area of free speech, that have been achieved by centuries of popular struggle, are to be admired. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Has Beens quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#176. Both of my parents have been actors; there were a lot of show tunes on in the car all of the time. I grew up with that. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Has Beens quotes by Frederick Lenz
#177. I enjoy the writings of all of these authors and they have been very inspirational for me. But I think that it is important as writers of metaphysical, New Age, occult fiction and nonfiction to not take ourselves too seriously. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Has Beens quotes by Henning Mankell
#178. Our exile organizations have been our way of replacing the cities and villages we have lost. #Quote by Henning Mankell
Has Beens quotes by Michael Shaara
#179. A man who has been shot at is a new realist, and what do you say to a realist when the war is a war of ideals? #Quote by Michael Shaara
Has Beens quotes by Adam Smith
#180. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Has Beens quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#181. What is wrong with us human beings, and has been wrong since time immemorial, is that without ever stating it in so many words, we believe that we have entered the realm of immortality. We behave as if we are never going to die - an infantile arrogance. But even more injurious than this sense of immortality is what comes with it : the sense that we can engulf this inconcievable universe with our minds. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Has Beens quotes by Frank Gohlke
#182. When a photographer chooses a subject, he or she is making a claim on the interest and attention of future viewers, a prediction about what will be thought to have been important. #Quote by Frank Gohlke
Has Beens quotes by Mark Twain
#183. There have been innumerable Temporary Seekers after the Truth-have you ever heard of a permanent one? #Quote by Mark Twain
Has Beens quotes by Moses Finley
#184. What I am arguing, in effect, is that the full democratic system of the second half of the fifth century B.C. would not have been introduced had there been no Athenian empire. #Quote by Moses Finley
Has Beens quotes by Edmond De Goncourt
#185. History is a novel that has been lived, a novel is history that could have been. #Quote by Edmond De Goncourt
Has Beens quotes by Maria Sharapova
#186. There's not many firsts in my career, as I have been a part of many tournaments and fortunate enough to win many. #Quote by Maria Sharapova
Has Beens quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#187. You men of the einsatzgruppen are called upon to fulfill a repulsive duty. But you are soldiers who have to carry out every order unconditionally. You have a responsibility before God and Hitler for everything that is happening. I myself hate this bloody business and I have been moved to the depths of my soul. But I am obeying the highest law by doing my duty. Man must defend himself against bedbugs and rats, against vermin. #Quote by Heinrich Himmler
Has Beens quotes by Joseph Prince
#188. For generations, the body of Christ has been defeated and put under a constant siege of condemnation from the accuser because they believe wrongly that the Holy Spirit convicts believers of their sins. #Quote by Joseph Prince
Has Beens quotes by Tim Berners-Lee
#189. The Google algorithm was a significant development. I've had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website. #Quote by Tim Berners-Lee
Has Beens quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#190. So many good things have happened to me in the game of baseball. When I do allow myself a chance to think about it, it's almost like a storybook career. You feel so blessed to have been able to compete this long. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Has Beens quotes by Marcel Proust
#191. The only thing that does not change is that at any and every time it appears that there have been great changes. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Has Beens quotes by Charles Sanders Peirce
#192. In all the works on pedagogy that ever I read - and they have been many, big, and heavy - I don't remember that any one has advocated a system of teaching by practical jokes, mostly cruel. That, however, describes the method of our great teacher, Experience. #Quote by Charles Sanders Peirce
Has Beens quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#193. From the start it has been the theatre's business to entertain people ... it needs no other passport than fun. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Has Beens quotes by Anne Boleyn
#194. The king has been very good to me. He promoted me from a simple maid to be a marchioness. Then he raised me to be a queen. Now he will raise me to be a martyr. #Quote by Anne Boleyn
Has Beens quotes by Matthew Arnold
#195. Thou waitest for the spark from heaven! and we, Light half-believers in our casual deeds ... Who hesitate and falter life away, And lose tomorrow the ground won today- Ah, do not we, Wanderer, await it too? #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Has Beens quotes by Broda Otto Barnes
#196. Forty years ago, after many years of successful use of thyroid therapy, leading gynecologists in this country and elsewhere were reporting thyroid had cured more menstrual disorders than all other medications combined. Unfortunately, that lesson seems to have been largely lost. #Quote by Broda Otto Barnes
Has Beens quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#197. In history there are no control groups. There is no one to tell us what might have been. We weep over the might have been, but there is no might have been. There never was. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Has Beens quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#198. The liberty of man consists solely in this, that he obeys the laws of nature because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have been imposed upon him externally by any foreign will whatsoever, human or divine, collective or individual. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Has Beens quotes by William Golding
#199. One thing should be put firmly. Where people have commented on that novel [The Paper Men], they generally criticize the poor academic, Rick L. Tucker, who is savaged by the author, Wilfred Barclay. I don't think people have noticed that I have been far ruder about Barclay than I have been about Tucker. Tucker is a fool, but Barclay is a swine. The author really gets his come-uppance. #Quote by William Golding
Has Beens quotes by Louis Agassiz
#200. Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next they say it has been discovered before. Lastly they say they always believed it. #Quote by Louis Agassiz
Has Beens quotes by Cassandra Clare
#201. Old ghosts, the shadows of might-have-beens. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Has Beens quotes by Aceyalone
#202. The world is full of bullshitters,
Liars, and triers and quitters,
Coulda-beens, wannabe's, thought-I-was, isn't-I-is's ...
And everybody in your business. #Quote by Aceyalone
Has Beens quotes by John Steinbeck
#203. I can't tell you how to live your life," Samuel said, "although I do be telling you how to live it. I know that it might be better for you to come out from under your might-have-beens, into the winds of the world. And while I tell you, I am myself sifting my memories, the way men pan the dirt under a barroom floor for the bits of gold dust that fall between the cracks. It's small mining
small mining. You're too young a man to be panning memories, Adam. You should be getting yourself some new ones, so that the mining will be richer when you come of age. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Has Beens quotes by Jo Graham
#204. He hadn't done it, and there was no point thinking about might-have-beens #Quote by Jo Graham
Has Beens quotes by Terry Pratchett
#205. At least nine-tenths of all the original reality ever created lies outside the multiverse, and since the multiverse by definition includes absolutely everything that is anything, this puts a bit of a strain on things.
Outside the boundaries of the universes lie the raw realities, the could-have-beens, the might-bes, the never-weres, the wild ideas, all being created and uncreated chaotically like elements in fermenting supernovas.
Just occasionally where the walls of the worlds have worn a bit thin, they can leak in. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Has Beens quotes by Alfred Bertram Guthrie
#206. Fiction is love and hate and agreement and conflict and common adventure, not lonely musings on have-beens and might-have-beens. #Quote by Alfred Bertram Guthrie
Has Beens quotes by Vivi Andrews
#207. You play it safe and all you end up with is a lifetime of should-have-beens. #Quote by Vivi Andrews
Has Beens quotes by Kasie West
#208. He shrugs. "Doesn't help to waste my time thinking about would've-beens."
Laila whispers, "He says to the girl with a mind full of them. #Quote by Kasie West
Has Beens quotes by Harlan Coben
#209. Few things, I assure you, will devastate like the might-have-beens. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Has Beens quotes by Harlan Coben
#210. Regrets and could-have-beens tried to sneak in, but he shoved them away. No time for this now. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Has Beens quotes by Meghan Quinn
#211. life isn't worth living if you never put your heart on the line, if you don't try new things. Pain can be short-lived, 'could have beens' will live with you forever. Don't live your life in a bowl full of regrets, because you're scared of the unknown. #Quote by Meghan Quinn
Has Beens quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#212. I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try. #Quote by Nikki Giovanni
Has Beens quotes by Alicia Cook
#213. You always want one more day.
You always want one more picture
as the old ones begin to fade.
You always want that one final hug
to have lasted just a tad longer.
You always want the fondness
of the remember-whens
to outnumber the might-have-beens.
You want more years, more months,
more weeks, more days,
more minutes, and more seconds.
You want the happily ever after
you always thought you deserved,
but the only thing actually promised
in this life is uncertainty. #Quote by Alicia Cook
Has Beens quotes by Andre Aciman
#214. The past may or may not be a foreign country. It may morph or lie still, but its capital is always Regret, and what flushes through it is the grand canal of unfledged desires that feed into an archipelago of tiny might-have-beens that never really happened but aren't unreal for not happening and might still happen though we fear they never will. And I thought of Ole Brit holding back so much, as we all do when we look back to see that the roads we've left behind or not taken have all but vanished. Regret is how we hope to back into our real lives once we find the will, the blind drive and courage, to trade in the life we're given for the life that bears our name and ours only. Regret is how we look forward to things we've long lost yet never really had. Regret is hope without conviction, I said. We're torn between regret, which is the price to pay for things not done, and remorse, which is the cost for having done them. Between one and the other, time plays all its cozy little tricks. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Has Beens quotes by Abigail Haas
#215. I can't help my mind skipping over the here-and-now and racing on, to what might come next. Consequence and regret and other might-have-beens: plotting out every angle and scenario, knowing all along that the path I take means missing something else. #Quote by Abigail Haas
Has Beens quotes by Julia Mills
#216. Stay out of the past. There's nothing there but would've beens, could've beens, and should've beens that will keep you from moving forward. #Quote by Julia Mills
Has Beens quotes by Robert Breault
#217. God sends the dawn that we might see the might-have-beens that still might be. #Quote by Robert Breault
Has Beens quotes by John Steinbeck
#218. I know it might be better for you to come out from under your might-have-beens, into the winds of the world. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Has Beens quotes by Orson Scott Card
#219. Might-have-beens are a bitch. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Has Beens quotes by Liz Tolsma
#220. No what-might-have-beens. If God says not to worry about tomorrow, I would think the same applies to yesterday. There's enough trouble in the here and now to worry about how differently things could have turned out. #Quote by Liz Tolsma
