Horizon The Game quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#1. The advisors, on the other hand, were like older brothers and sisters. My favorite was Bill Symes, who'd been a founding member of Fellowship in 1967. He was in his early twenties now and studying religion at Webster University. He had shoulders like a two-oxen yoke, a ponytail as thick as a pony's tail, and feet requiring the largest size of Earth Shoes. He was a good musician, a passionate attacker of steel acoustical guitar strings. He liked to walk into Burger King and loudly order two Whoppers with no meat. If he was losing a Spades game, he would take a card out of his hand, tell the other players, "Play this suit!" and then lick the card and stick it to his forehead facing out. In discussions, he liked to lean into other people's space and bark at them. He said, "You better deal with that!" He said, "Sounds to me like you've got a problem that you're not talking about!" He said, "You know what? I don't think you believe one word of what you just said to me!" He said, "Any resistance will be met with an aggressive response!" If you hesitated when he moved to hug you, he backed away and spread his arms wide and goggled at you with raised eyebrows, as if to say, "Hello? Are you going to hug me, or what?" If he wasn't playing guitar he was reading Jung, and if he wasn't reading Jung he was birdwatching, and if he wasn't birdwatching he was practicing tai chi, and if you came up to him during his practice and asked him how he would defend himself if you tried to mug him wit #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Horizon The Game quotes by Mu Xin
#2. Ideas' can be only in the distant background of a work of art, something like a very low horizon. In the middle distance and foreground ... there shouldn't be any 'ideas' visible. #Quote by Mu Xin
Horizon The Game quotes by Nelly
#3. As you become a legend in the game, you build more doubters than you build supporters. And that's fine. I think that comes with anything that's challenging. I think it even comes with sports. The older that Michael Jordan got, I think the more doubted he became. #Quote by Nelly
Horizon The Game quotes by Jen Sincero
#4. Making a big fat deal out of anything is absurd. It makes much more sense to go after life with a sense of, "Why not?" instead of a furrowed brow. One of the best things I ever did was make my motto "I just wanna see what I can get away with." It takes all the pressure off, puts the punk rock attitude in, and reminds me that life is but a game. #Quote by Jen Sincero
Horizon The Game quotes by Amy A. Bartol
#5. Do you remember when I told you that I sometimes believe that you're not real? That I imagined you just to hurt myself?" Reed says softly with a bitterly self-effacing laugh that has nothing to do with humor. "I know now that you have to be real. This kind of pain cannot exist if you were imaginary," Reed's sexy voice breathes. I feel like I could reach out and touch him, he feels that close to me. "I know you exist, but you're like a sunset to me now - beautiful and so distant that no matter how fast I fly, I cannot reach you. You are always on the next horizon," Reed says sadly, and my breath catches in my throat as an unbelievable ache throbs in my chest. "Tel me where you are. I wil meet you
wherever you are in the world. I wil be there. Just you and me, I swear it. We don't have to endanger anyone else
we'l make sure Buns and Brownie and Zephyr are safe. Just you and me, I promise ... I wil meet you anywhere at anytime ... I wil ... #Quote by Amy A. Bartol
Horizon The Game quotes by Glenn Hoddle
#6. I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game. #Quote by Glenn Hoddle
Horizon The Game quotes by Rebecca Zanetti
#7. It's Okay, Mom." The little girl grinned impishly. "Max will be pretty with pink nails."
"Oh I brought my A-game," the vampire snorted as he sat on the other couch.
"Bout Time," Janie retorted #Quote by Rebecca Zanetti
Horizon The Game quotes by Anna Funder
#8. Von Schnitzler's job was to show extracts from western television broadcast into the GDR - anything from news items to game shows to 'Dallas' - and rip it to shreds. 'That man radiated so much nastiness he simply wasn't credible. You'd come away feeling sullied, as if you'd spent half an hour atrociously badmouthing someone. #Quote by Anna Funder
Horizon The Game quotes by David Ortiz
#9. My mom, she wasn't like a baseball mother who knew everything about the game. She just wanted me to be happy with what I was doing. #Quote by David Ortiz
Horizon The Game quotes by E.A. Bucchianeri
#10. You mean something like 'truth or dare'? I haven't played that in a long time." She didn't think he would ever get himself entangled in a game like that, but it was addictive, a compromising icebreaker featuring all the strategy of Poker, minus the cards, mixed with a dash of danger from Russian Roulette, without the revolver. #Quote by E.A. Bucchianeri
Horizon The Game quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#11. When they find out what I do for a living, many people tell me they love music listening, but their music lessons 'didn't take.' I think they're being too hard on themselves. The chasm between musical experts and everyday musicians that has grown so wide in our culture makes people feel discouraged, and for some reason this is uniquely so with music. Even though most of us can't play basketball like Shaquille O'Neal, or cook like Julia Child, we can still enjoy playing a friendly backyard game of hoops, or cooking a holiday meal for our friends and family. This performance chasm does seem to be cultural, specific to contemporary Western society. And although many people say that music lessons didn't take, cognitive neuroscientists have found otherwise in their laboratories. Even just a small exposure to music lessons as a child creates neural circuits for music processing that are enhanced and more efficient than for those who lack training. Music lessons teach us to listen better, and they accelerate our ability to discern structure and form in music, making it easier for us to tell what music we like and what we don't like. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Horizon The Game quotes by Richard Hofstadter
#12. What came in the end was only a small war and a quick victory; when the farmers and the gentlemen finally did coalesce in politics, they produced only the genial reforms of Progressivism; and the man on the white horse turned out to be just a graduate of the Harvard boxing squad, equipped with an immense bag of platitudes, and quite willing to play the democratic game. #Quote by Richard Hofstadter
Horizon The Game quotes by Richard Powers
#13. You have given me a thing I could never have imagined, before I knew you. It's like I had the word "book," and you put one in my hands. I had the world "game," and you taught me how to play. I had the word "life," and then you came along and said, "Oh! You mean this. #Quote by Richard Powers
Horizon The Game quotes by Alton Brown
#14. I'm an absolute connoisseur of cheeseburgers and like to think that I can detect even mere percentages of shift in fat content in ground meat in a burger and can actually name the temperature to which it was actually cooked to the degree if I'm, you know, really on my game. #Quote by Alton Brown
Horizon The Game quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#15. The harder I tried to assimilate, the more I had the feeling that I was distancing myself from my culture, betraying my parents and my origins, that I was playing a game by somebody else's rules. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Horizon The Game quotes by Kate McCarthy
#16. How Nicky went all fierce before he hung up. It was kinda hot actually."

"Gross, Leah." I stand up and make a grab for the purple dress she's scrunching in her hands. "That's my brother."

"What? I can't think your brother's hot?"

"No. It's a rule," I inform her as I toss the dress on the bed and peel off my hoodie. I drop it on the floor. "Thou shalt not covet thy best friend's brother or thy best friend shalt barf."

Off goes my white tank top, and I peel the gym shorts down my legs without inhibition. After years of locker rooms, stripping in front of my friend and teammate isn't much of a big deal.

"Thou friend has eyes in her head, and he's hot as hell so shut your mouth. #Quote by Kate McCarthy
Horizon The Game quotes by Wally Lamb
#17. Destiny shuffles the cards, but we are the ones who must play the game. #Quote by Wally Lamb
Horizon The Game quotes by William Shakespeare
#18. There's an old saying that applies to me: you can't lose a game if you don't play the game. (Act 1, scene 4) #Quote by William Shakespeare
Horizon The Game quotes by Margaret Fuller
#19. At Chicago I read again 'Philip Van Artevelde,' and certain passages in it will always be in my mind associated with the deep sound of the lake, as heard in the night. I used to read a short time at night, and then open the blind to look out. The moon would be full upon the lake, and the calm breath, pure light, and the deep voice, harmonized well with the thought of the Flemish hero. When will this country have such a man ? It is what she needs - no thin Idealist, no coarse Realist, but a man whose eye reads the heavens while his feet step firmly on the ground and his hands are strong and dextrous in the use of human instruments. A man, religious, virtuous and - sagacious; a man of universal sympathies, but self-possessed; a man who knows the region of emotion, though he is not its slave; a man to whom this world is no mere spectacle or fleeting shadow, but a great, solemn game, to be played with good heed, for its stakes are of eternal value, yet who, if his own play be true, heeds not what he loses by the falsehood of others. A man who lives from the past, yet knows that its honey can but moderately avail him; whose comprehensive eye scans the present, neither infatuated by its golden lures nor chilled by its many ventures; who possesses prescience, as the wise man must, but not so far as to be driven mad to-day by the gift which discerns to-morrow. When there is such a man for America, the thought which urges her on will be expressed. #Quote by Margaret Fuller
Horizon The Game quotes by Taya Kyle
#20. One of the things that I admired about Chris's relationship with our kids was his insistence that each be his or her own person.
Even when that meant rooting against his beloved Dallas Cowboys. Though in that case, there were limits.
He and Bubba were watching a football game one Sunday, with Dallas playing the Philadelphia Eagles.
Philadelphia started winning from the get-go. Decisively. And Bubba rooted for them. Loudly.
Finally, Chris could take it no more.
"Bubba, you can root for whoever you want," he said at last. "But today, you're going to do it in your head. #Quote by Taya Kyle
Horizon The Game quotes by Jerry West
#21. Personalities seem in many cases to dominate the lucrative endorsement market. But that doesn't upset me. What upsets me is when not enough attention is paid to the product-the game. #Quote by Jerry West
Horizon The Game quotes by Alex Gibney
#22. There's something magical about a home run. It almost violates the space of the stadium. It's a game of the imagination in some ways. Baseball. #Quote by Alex Gibney
Horizon The Game quotes by Naveen Jain
#23. Just think of the opportunities we can unlock by making education as addictive as a video game. This type of experiential, addictive learning improves decision-making skills and increases the processing speed and spatial skills of the brain. When was the last time your child asked for help with a video game? #Quote by Naveen Jain
Horizon The Game quotes by Rickie Fowler
#24. My grandpa was the one; he started taking up golf when I was about two and introduced me to the game as far as just taking me to the driving range where I grew up playing. That was really all he had to do was let me hit a golf ball and kind of fell in love with it from there. He didn't really have to teach me a whole lot or anything. #Quote by Rickie Fowler
Horizon The Game quotes by Osvaldo Ardiles
#25. The lad is surprisingly strong and can turn a game with his incredible acceleration before applying a world-class finish. You can't kick Messi out of a game- he rides tackles like a thoroughbred horse. #Quote by Osvaldo Ardiles
Horizon The Game quotes by Peter Mayhew
#26. Never having played Chess before, it was most interesting to be playing the game with no pieces in front of me. But I still knew how to stroke my hair when I won. #Quote by Peter Mayhew
Horizon The Game quotes by Eric Fellner
#27. Something like small English films were in vogue you had something like The Crying Game and everyone piled into London and wanted to make small English movies. #Quote by Eric Fellner
Horizon The Game quotes by Sibylla Matilde
#28. ...he'd become the star on the horizon that had gently kept her centered. The warm comfort in a storm. The fragment of kindness in what had been for so long an unkind world... #Quote by Sibylla Matilde
Horizon The Game quotes by Tapan Ghosh
#29. The habit of passing the blame onto someone is a sign of being dependent on that person. #Quote by Tapan Ghosh
Horizon The Game quotes by Roger Scruton
#30. Unlike every other product that is now manufactured for the table, wine exists in as many varieties as there are people who produce it. Variations in technique, climate, grape, soil and culture ensure that wine is, to the ordinary drinker, the most unpredictable of drinks, and to the connoisseur the most intricately informative, responding to its origins like a game of chess to its opening move. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Horizon The Game quotes by D. B. Weiss
#31. When I put a quarter into an arcade machine or call up an emulated game on my computer, I do it to escape the world that is a slave to the time that makes things fall apart. I have never played these games to occupy my world. #Quote by D. B. Weiss
Horizon The Game quotes by Cam Newton
#32. You don't go into the game to compete. You go into each game to win. #Quote by Cam Newton
Horizon The Game quotes by Randy Carlyle
#33. I don't think you can really expect to win a hockey game giving up three power-play goals. In reality, you cant give up those and that's the difference in the hockey game. #Quote by Randy Carlyle
Horizon The Game quotes by Tom Everett Scott
#34. Actors should be better poker players. But I think there's actual skill and crazy guts that you need to play poker - this ability to put all this money on the line inside of that game of cards. There's this whole different set of skills that doesn't apply to acting whatsoever. #Quote by Tom Everett Scott
Horizon The Game quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#35. The majority of people have successfully alienated themselves from change; they tediously arrange their lives into a familiar pattern, they give themselves to normalcy, they are proud if they are able to follow in auspicious footsteps set before them, they take pride in always coloring inside the lines and they feel secure if they belong to a batch of others who are like them. Now, if familiar patterns bore you, if normalcy passes before you unnoticed, if you want to create your own footsteps in the earth and leave your own handprints on the skies, if you are the one who doesn't mind the lines in the coloring book as much as others do, and perchance you do not cling to a flock for you to identify with, then you must be ready for adversity. If you are something extraordinary, you are going to always shock others and while they go about existing in their mundaneness which they call success, you're going to be flying around crazy in their skies and that scares them. People are afraid of change, afraid of being different, afraid of doing things and thinking things that aren't a part of their checkerboard game of a life. They only know the pieces and the moves in their games, and that's it. You're always going to find them in the place that you think you're going to find them in, and every time they think about you, you're going to give them a heart attack. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Horizon The Game quotes by John Rhein
#36. Keep your eyes on the horizon and not on your feet. #Quote by John Rhein
Horizon The Game quotes by Helen Keller
#37. For, after all, every one who wishes to gain true knowledge must climb the Hill Difficulty alone, and since there is no royal road to the summit, I must zigzag it in my own way. I slip back many times, I fall, I stand still, I run against the edge of hidden obstacles, I lose my temper and find it again and keep it better, I trudge on, I gain a little, I feel encouraged, I get more eager and climb higher and begin to see the widening horizon. Every struggle is a victory. One more effort and I reach the luminous cloud, the blue depths of the sky, the uplands of my desire. #Quote by Helen Keller
Horizon The Game quotes by K.A. Applegate
#38. You needed love to win at the game of music ... I played of sadness. I played of loneliness. Despair. Love found and lost. I played of tragic misunderstanding and weary cynicism and defeat. I played of perseverance, endurance beyond all suffering. Endurance in the face of hopelessness, hope when even hope was a betrayal ... And yet, though I played so much sadness, the music at the same time denied despair. How could anyone despair while music was being played? #Quote by K.A. Applegate
Horizon The Game quotes by Rohit Prasad
#39. The game is never over. The universe has a pretty good knowledge management system and stores every new idea, every innovation ever attempted in its bottomless ledgers. #Quote by Rohit Prasad
Horizon The Game quotes by James Hain Friswell
#40. I shook with cold and fear, without being able to answer. After a lapse of some moments, I was again called. I made an effort to speak, and then felt the bandage which wrapped me from head to foot. It was my shroud. At last, I managed feebly to articulate, 'Who calls?'

'Tis I' said a voice.

'Who art thou?'

'I! I! I!' was the answer; and the voice grew weaker, as if it was lost in the distance; or as if it was but the icy rustle of the trees.

A third time my name sounded on my ears; but now it seemed to run from tree to tree, as if it whistled in each dead branch; so that the entire cemetery repeated it with a dull sound. Then I heard a noise of wings, as if my name, pronounced in the silence, had suddenly awakened a troop of nightbirds. My hands, as if by some mysterious power, sought my face. In silence I undid the shroud which bound me, and tried to see. It seemed as if I had awakened from a long sleep. I was cold.

I then recalled the dread fear which oppressed me, and the mournful images by which I was surrounded. The trees had no longer any leaves upon them, and seemed to stretch forth their bare branches like huge spectres! A single ray of moonlight which shone forth, showed me a long row of tombs, forming an horizon around me, and seeming like the steps which might lead to Heaven. All the vague voices of the night, which seemed to preside at my awakening, were full of terror. ("The Dead Man's Story") #Quote by James Hain Friswell
Horizon The Game quotes by Drake
#41. The game ain't always fair and that's the thing though. You can play your heart out, everyone don't get a ring though. #Quote by Drake
