Iron Horseshoe quotes by Hokusai
#1. What is drawing? It is working oneself through an invisible iron wall that seems to stand between what one feels and what one can do. - Vincent van Gogh, The Letters of Vincent van Gogh to His Brother #Quote by Hokusai
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Rachel Vincent
#2. Harmony glanced to her left, and my gaze followed hers to the living room, where my aunt had died, my cousin had been restored, and I'd whacked a psychotic grim reaper with a cast-iron skillet.
Weirdest. Tuesday. Ever. #Quote by Rachel Vincent
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#3. Elide said, "Your mount doesn't seem evil." Abraxos's tail thumped on the ground, the iron spikes in it glinting. A giant, lethal dog. With wings. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Adrienne Rich
#4. Across the curve of the earth, there are women getting up before dawn, in the blackness before the point of light, in the twilight before sunrise; there are women rising earlier than men and children to break the ice, to start the stove, to put up the pap, the coffee, the rice, to iron the pants, to braid the hair, to pull the day's water up from the well, to boil water for tea, to wash the children for school, to pull the vegetables and start the walk to market, to run to catch the bus for the work that is paid. I don't know when most women sleep. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Iron Horseshoe quotes by John James Audubon
#5. I ate no butcher's meat, lived chiefly on fruits, vegetables, and fish, and never drank a glass of spirits or wine until my wedding day. To this I attribute my continual good health, endurance, and an iron constitution. #Quote by John James Audubon
Iron Horseshoe quotes by David Foster Wallace
#6. A bird named Vlad the Impaler, who spent the bulk of his life hissing and looking at himself in a little mirror hanging[ ... ] in the iron cage, a mirror so dull and cloudy with Vlad the Impaler's bird-spit that Vlad the Impaler could not possibly have seen anything more than a vague yellowish blob behind a pane of mist[ ... ] A bird that not infrequently literally bit the hand that fed it, before returning to dance in front of its own shapeless reflection, straining and contorting always for a better view of itself. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Cory Doctorow
#7. It's as if the railroad were looming on the horizon, and the most visionary thing the futurists of the day can think of to say about it is that these iron horses will have a disastrous effect on the hardworking manufacturers of oat-bags for horses. #Quote by Cory Doctorow
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Mario Batali
#8. I like cast iron coated with enamel for longevity and forgiveness if I happen to take my eyes off the prize while pouring Chianti. #Quote by Mario Batali
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Marie Lu
#9. Yes - at the cost of a third of your army. What will happen when you try to seize what remains of Tamoura? When the Beldish strike at you again? Queen Maeve is watching you, I'm sure." He takes a deep breath. "Adelina, you're Queen of the Sealands now. You've annexed Domacca and northern Tamoura in the Sunlands. At some point, your goal should be not to conquer more territories but to keep order in the territories you do have. And you won't achieve that by ordering your Inquisitors to drag unmarked civilians out into the streets and brand them with a hot iron. #Quote by Marie Lu
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Bruce Willis
#10. We were lucky to get Sam Jackson and Jeremy Irons and John McTiernan back. Long movie and hard movie to make and difficult for me because instead of working, my biggest concern was not repeating things I had done it in the previous films. And it rang notes in my head of episodic TV. A sequel is not a new movie; it's a chapter in a movie that you have already seen. Thank god Sam was there and thank god Jeremy was there. Again, it went outside the template of that series of films but it did well and made a ton of dough and the third chapter of a lot of sequels is always the one that falls down. #Quote by Bruce Willis
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Herman Melville
#11. As, blind and deaf, the whale plunged forward, as if by sheer power of speed to rid himself of the iron leech that had fastened to him; as we thus tore a white gash in the sea, #Quote by Herman Melville
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Walt Whitman
#12. There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#13. Hand of iron! Head of iron! Heart of iron!" And he lashed blindly with his sword over the shield wall. "Your death comes, sang the hundred! #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Iron Horseshoe quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#14. America is neither free nor brave, but a land of tight, iron-clanking little wills, everybody trying to put it over everybody else, and a land of men absolutely devoid of the real courage of trust, trust in life's sacred spontaneity. They can't trust life until they can control it. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Hesiod
#15. For now indeed is the race of iron; and men never cease from labour and sorrow by day and from perishing by night. #Quote by Hesiod
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Rick Riordan
#16. In the back corner, a stairwell led down. It was blocked by a row of iron bars like a prison door. Percy wondered what was down there - monsters? Treasure? Amnesiac demigods who had gotten on Reyna's bad side? #Quote by Rick Riordan
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#17. The mind has its needs, just as the body does. The latter are the
foundations of society; from the former emerge the pleasures of
society. While government and laws take care of the security
and the well being of men in groups, the sciences, letters, and
the arts, less despotic and perhaps more powerful, spread
garlands of flowers over the iron chains which weigh men
down, snuffing out in them the feeling of that original liberty for
which they appear to have been born, and make them love their
slavery by turning them into what are called civilized people. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#18. You cannot make steel until you have made the iron white-hot in fire. It is not meant for harm. Trouble and disease have a lesson for us. Our painful experiences are not meant to destroy us, but to burn out our dross, to hurry us back Home. No one is more anxious for our release than God. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Cervantes
#19. I come to a world of iron to make a world of gold. #Quote by Cervantes
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Thomas Bulfinch
#20. Mail armor continued in general use till about the year 1300, when it was gradually supplanted by plate armor, or suits consisting of pieces or plates of solid iron, adapted to the different parts of the body. #Quote by Thomas Bulfinch
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Gillian Hovell, 'Visiting The Past'
#21. Discover how to visit the past and bring yesterday's stories into our lives today #Quote by Gillian Hovell, 'Visiting The Past'
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Diablo Cody
#22. The funny thing was that the sisters were hardly nubile, creamy-skinned Lolitas blushing on the bough. In fact, one of them looked like she'd beaten herself with a tire iron during a smallpox-induced hallucination, and the other looked like a close-up photo of a wolf spider. #Quote by Diablo Cody
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#23. Ice and iron cannot be welded. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Edward Abbey
#24. Concrete is heavy; iron is hard - but the grass will prevail. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#25. Emperor held court from his Iron Throne, made from the personal weapons of all those monarchs the Emperors of the past had conquered and deposed, each glazed and guarded against rust. The throne itself was over six feet tall and four feet in width; a monolithic piece of furniture, it was so heavy that it had not been moved so much as a finger-length in centuries. Anyone looking at it could only be struck by its sheer mass - and must begin calculating just how many sword blades, axes, and lance points must have gone into the making of it ... None #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#26. By early evening all the sky to the north had darkened and the spare terrain they trod had turned a neuter gray as far as the eye could see. They grouped in the road at the top of a rise and looked back. The storm front towered above them and the wind was cool on their sweating faces. They slumped bleary-eyed in their saddles and looked at one another. Shrouded in the black thunderheads the distant lightning glowed mutely like welding seen through foundry smoke. As if repairs were under way at some flawed place n the iron dark of the world. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#27. That devilish Iron Horse, whose ear-rending neigh is heard throughout the town, has muddied the Boiling Spring with his foot, and he it is that has browsed off all the woods on Walden shore, that Trojan horse, with a thousand men in his belly, introduced by mercenary Greeks! Where is the country's champion, the Moore of Moore Hall, to meet him at the Deep Cut and thrust an avenging lance between the ribs of the bloated pest? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Ronald Wright
#28. Though we became experimental creatures of our own devising, it's important to bear in mind that we had no inkling of this process, let alone its consequences, until only the last six or seven of our 100,000 generations. We have done it all sleepwalking. Nature let a few apes into the lab of evolution, switched on the lights, and left us there to mess about with an ever-growing supply of ingredients and processes.

The effect on us and the world has accumulated ever since. Let's list a few steps between the earliest times and this: sharp stones, animal skins, useful bits of bone and wood, wild fire, tame fire, seeds for eating, seeds for planting, houses, villages, pottery, cities, metals, wheels, explosives.

What strikes one most forcefully is the acceleration, the runaway progression of change - or to put it another way, the collapsing of time. From the first chipped stone to the first smelted iron took nearly 3 million years; from the first iron to the hydrogen bomb took only 3,000. #Quote by Ronald Wright
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Alan Bradley
#29. The panel on the right portrayed Jesus emerging from his tomb, as Mary Magdalene, in a red dress (also iron, or perhaps grated particles of gold), holds out to him a purple garment (manganese dioxide) and a loaf of yellow bread (silver chloride). #Quote by Alan Bradley
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Herman Melville
#30. What business have I with this pipe? This thing that is meant for sereneness, to send up mild white vapors among mild white hairs, not among torn iron-grey locks like mine. I'll smoke no more. #Quote by Herman Melville
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#31. Seriously," said Kami, her voice faint. "I think I left the oven on at home. Or the iron. Possibly both. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Ernie Els
#32. I think most amateurs dread playing a 180-plus-yard par 3 even more than a hard par 4. Part of it is psychological: You think you should be getting a breather, distance-wise, and instead, you get hit with a long iron or hybrid shot over trouble. #Quote by Ernie Els
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#33. Evil thought is a dangerous pet. It is safer to play with it from behind the iron bars of circumstance. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Iron Horseshoe quotes by V.C. Andrews
#34. Look at you, standing there in your iron- gray dress, feeling pious
and self- righteous while you starve small children! #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Jack London
#35. But this is not a world of free freights. One pays according to an iron schedule
for every strength the balanced weakness; for every high a corresponding low; for every fictitious god-like moment an equivalent time in reptilian slime. For every feat of telescoping long days and weeks of life into mad magnificent instants, one must pay with shortened life, and, oft-times,
with savage usury added. #Quote by Jack London
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Billy Collins
#36. Japan

Today I pass the time reading
a favorite haiku,
saying the few words over and over.

It feels like eating
the same small, perfect grape
again and again.

I walk through the house reciting it
and leave its letters falling
through the air of every room.

I stand by the big silence of the piano and say it.
I say it in front of a painting of the sea.
I tap out its rhythm on an empty shelf.

I listen to myself saying it,
then I say it without listening,
then I hear it without saying it.

And when the dog looks up at me,
I kneel down on the floor
and whisper it into each of his long white ears.

It's the one about the one-ton
temple bell
with the moth sleeping on its surface,

and every time I say it, I feel the excruciating
pressure of the moth
on the surface of the iron bell.

When I say it at the window,
the bell is the world
and I am the moth resting there.

When I say it into the mirror,
I am the heavy bell
and the moth is life with its papery wings.

And later, when I say it to you in the dark,
you are the bell,
and I am the tongue of the bell, ringing you,

and the moth has flown
from its line
and moves like a hinge in the air above our bed. #Quote by Billy Collins
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Christa Faust
#37. Here the scent of fake roses was underscored with the bright iron reek of blood. #Quote by Christa Faust
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Jack Vance
#38. What is peace? Balance three iron skewers tip to tip, one upon the other; at the summit, emplace an egg, so that it too poises static in mid-air, and there you have the condition of peace in this world of men. #Quote by Jack Vance
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#39. Quick work doesn't mean less serious work, it depends on one's self-confidence and experience. In the same way Jules Guérard, the lion hunter, says in his book that in the beginning young lions have a lot of trouble killing a horse or an ox, but that the old lions kill with a single blow of the paw or a well-placed bite, and that they are amazingly sure at the job... I must warn you that everyone will think that I work too fast. Don't you believe a word of it. Is it not emotion, the sincerity of one's feeling for nature, that draws us, and if the emotions are sometimes so strong that one works without knowing one works, when sometimes the strokes come with a continuity and coherence like words in a speech or a letter, then one must remember that it has not always been so, and that in time to come there will again be hard days, empty of inspiration. So one must strike while the iron is hot, and put the forged bars on one side. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#40. No individual and no nation need fear at any time to have less money than it needs. Government measures designed to regulate the international movement of money in order to ensure that the community shall have the amount it needs, are just as unnecessary and inappropriate as, say, intervention to ensure a sufficiency or corn or iron or the like. This argument dealt the Mercantilist Theory its death-blow. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Iron Horseshoe quotes by Sun Tzu
#41. 42. If soldiers are punished before they have grown attached to you, they will not prove submissive; and, unless submissive, then will be practically useless.
If, when the soldiers have become attached to you, punishments are not enforced, they will still be useless.
43. Therefore soldiers must be treated in the first instance with humanity, but kept under control by means of iron discipline. This is a certain road to victory.
44. If in training soldiers commands are habitually enforced, the army will be well-disciplined; if not, its discipline will be bad. #Quote by Sun Tzu
