Jacob Portman quotes by Ransom Riggs
#1. Good gravy," said Elmer. "You're getting a real crash course, then."
"That's for sure."
"It's definitely more crash than course," said Enoch. #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Jacob Portman quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#2. But in the end you cannot serve two masters, Theos and Elohim, the god of the Greco-Roman philosophers and Caesars and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the violent god of profit proclaimed by the empire and the compassionate God of justice proclaimed by the prophets. You can try to hybridize them and compromise them for centuries, but like oil and water they eventually separate and prove incompatible. They refuse to alloy. They produce irreconcilable narratives and create different worlds. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Jacob Portman quotes by Rick Yancey
#3. Will isn't my little bastard assistant. Will is Pellinore Warthrop's little bastard assistant. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Jacob Portman quotes by Jodi Picoult
#4. In my opinion, the very fact that Mark doesn't know this diagnostic criterion suggests that he's a lot closer to actual retardation than I am. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Jacob Portman quotes by J. Lynn
#5. Sleep just go to sleep.
Cam lived across the hall?
You need to get up early. Go to sleep.
How in the world was that possible? He was everywhere I went.
Go to sleep.
And why did he have a pet turtle and did he seriously name it after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, because that was kind of funny.
Morning's going to come soon.
Did he only wear a shirt during class? Oh my God, he seriously lived across the hall. Jacob was going to flip ... and probably move in. That would be fun. I really liked Jacob, but I had a feeling he'd borrow my clothes.
Go the fuck to sleep. #Quote by J. Lynn
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Nordby
#6. To reclaim our natural power and this birthright of real magic, we must get naked and face ourselves.

The truth of Who You Really Are is vast. It is genius. It crackles with electricity and sensuality and other forbidden, dangerous things. You have longed for it all your life. You catch glimpses of it from the corner of your eye. A riff of music reminds you, a surge of ecstasy during sex brings you home, a crisp Autumn wind carries some long forgotten scent which thrills you for inexplicable reasons. A thousand tiny hints show up to seduce you awake and lead you back into your true nature, but they flee when you try to grasp them and leave you wondering if you were just imagining things.
You weren't though.
This quality of richness and balance and home is Who You Really Are. That is the kingdom we seek and it waits for us to find it. It wants us to regain our rightful place. #Quote by Jacob Nordby
Jacob Portman quotes by Francois Jacob
#7. The Place of No Shadows, in Isaac Asimovs Science Fiction Magazine (1990) In our Universe, matter is arranged in a hierarchy of structures by successive integrations. #Quote by Francois Jacob
Jacob Portman quotes by R William Bennett
#8. To feel the pain of unresolvable regret-- this, Jacob is hell. It is far worse than any fire and brimstone man has conjured. #Quote by R William Bennett
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Sullum
#9. If the fact that people make poor decisions is reason enough for the government to second-guess their decisions about dangerous activities such as smoking cigarettes and riding motorcycles, why on earth should the government let people make their own choices when it comes to such consequential matters as where to live, how much education to get, whom to marry, whether to have children, which job to take, or what religion to practice? #Quote by Jacob Sullum
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Bowen
#10. Don't call it death; call it moving to Heaven. #Quote by Jacob Bowen
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Chance
#11. Everyone has a bad day here and there, but I've been having a bad year. Life has smashed a giant creme pie in my face over and over for the past five months. #Quote by Jacob Chance
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#12. The most remarkable discovery made by scientists is science itself. The discovery must be compared in importance with the invention of cave-painting and of writing. Like these earlier human creations, science is an attempt to control our surroundings by entering into them and understanding them from inside. And like them, science has surely made a critical step in human development which cannot be reversed. We cannot conceive a future society without science. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Braude
#13. The surest way to get a job done is to give it to a busy man. He'll have his secretary do it. #Quote by Jacob Braude
Jacob Portman quotes by Thomas De Witt Talmage
#14. Bring the little ones to Christ. Lord Jesus, we bring them today, the children of our Sunday-schools, of our churches, of the streets. Here they are; they wait Thy benediction. The prayer of Jacob for his sons shall be my prayer while I live, and when I die: The angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads. #Quote by Thomas De Witt Talmage
Jacob Portman quotes by Mark Gevisser
#15. Remember one thing as South Africa prepares to go to the polls this week and the world grapples with the ascendancy of the African National Congress leader Jacob Zuma: South Africa is not Zimbabwe.
In South Africa, no one doubts that Wednesday's elections will be free and fair. While there is an unacceptable degree of government corruption, there is no evidence of the wholesale kleptocracy of Robert Mugabe's elite. While there has been the abuse of the organs of state by the ruling ANC, there is not the state terror of Mugabe's Zanu-PF. And while there is a clear left bias to Zuma's ANC, there is no suggestion of the kind of voluntarist experimentation that has brought Zimbabwe to its knees. #Quote by Mark Gevisser
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Latimore
#16. Keep God first, chase your dreams, and everything will pay off. #Quote by Jacob Latimore
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob G. Hornberger
#17. History has shown more than once that when people surrender totalitarian powers to their rulers, they are inevitably exercised in the next big crisis. And let's not forget here that the next president who wields this power and who will be in charge of military might well be Hillary Clinton. #Quote by Jacob G. Hornberger
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#18. The central opposition between magic and science is the opposition between power and knowledge. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Lief
#19. It strikes me as unfortunate that this approach - affording the same dignity to and investing in the same quality for a poor child as you would for your own - is so often received as provocative. #Quote by Jacob Lief
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Grimm
#20. Husband down the steps so that he broke his leg. Take the good-for-nothing #Quote by Jacob Grimm
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Burckhardt
#21. True universality does not consist in knowing much but in loving much. #Quote by Jacob Burckhardt
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Lund Fisker
#22. For instance, why do we still work eight hours a day, 50 weeks a year, when we're twice as productive as we were 50 years ago? #Quote by Jacob Lund Fisker
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Grimm
#23. stood still and stared at them. 'Why do you stand gaping there?' cried the dwarf, and his ashen-grey face became copper-red with rage. He was still cursing when a loud growling #Quote by Jacob Grimm
Jacob Portman quotes by Anonymous
#24. 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, 20 love the LORD your God, obey Him, and remain faithful to Him. For He is your life, and He will prolong your life in the land the LORD swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. #Quote by Anonymous
Jacob Portman quotes by Natalie Portman
#25. I always think the most romantic books or films are the ones where the romance doesn't happen, because it makes your heart ache so much watching it. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Jacob Portman quotes by Marion G. Romney
#26. Lehi, in counseling his son Jacob, makes a very challenging statement: "All things have been done in the wisdom of him who knoweth all things." (2 Ne. 2:24.) If I interpret this statement correctly, it means that one's wisdom is proportionate to his knowledge. This being so, how insignificant is the wisdom of man, which is based upon his limited mortal experience, when compared with the wisdom of God, which is based upon his knowledge of all things. #Quote by Marion G. Romney
Jacob Portman quotes by Nikki Reed
#27. I have great respect for actors like Jodie Foster and Natalie Portman who went to school the entire time they were acting. All I did was one small little independent film, and I realised I couldn't balance both lives. #Quote by Nikki Reed
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Hashimoto
#28. Opera is something you have to educate yourself about. You have to make sure you understand the stories, what was happening politically, socially during the time these things were made and how they've changed through history. #Quote by Jacob Hashimoto
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Wren
#29. If I'm the enemy then really let me have it. If moral outrage about the state of the world is consuming your life, paralyzing you, taking over your world, then set fire to the reader in an act of revenge. Instead you leave the reader, or this reader at least, indifferent, watching your ineffective life unravel ineffectually. If our wealth is criminal then let's live with the criminal joy of pirates or fight to the death to bring a sliver more of justice into being. Not the passive slither forward you are attempting to pass off as literature. #Quote by Jacob Wren
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#30. This is the concentration camp and crematorium at Auschwitz. This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance. It was done by dogma. It was done by ignorance. When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Burckhardt
#31. The essence of tyranny is the denial of complexity. #Quote by Jacob Burckhardt
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Lew
#32. We cannot win the future, expand the economy and spur job creation if we are saddled with increasingly growing deficits. That is why the president's budget is a comprehensive and responsible plan that will put us on a path toward fiscal sustainability in the next few years - a down payment toward tackling our challenges in the long term. #Quote by Jacob Lew
Jacob Portman quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#33. Christ is on both sides: he holdeth up, and throweth down, in one and the same act; he denieth the woman to be his, and is on her side to grace her, to believe that he is her's. Christ putteth his child away, and he desireth that his child should not be put away from him; he is for Jacob in his wrestling, and as if he were against him, saith, 'Let me alone.' Christ here doth both hold and draw, oppose and defend at once. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Jacob Portman quotes by Rob Portman
#34. Things are not getting better. They are getting worse. We need to elect Mitt Romney to turn things around. #Quote by Rob Portman
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Needleman
#35. What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose? #Quote by Jacob Needleman
Jacob Portman quotes by Gilbert Morris
#36. Ardon was greeted by several of the members of the tribe of Dan. They were an unruly, quarrelsome group, and Ardon remembered the prophecy that Jacob, the grandson of Abraham, had given on his deathbed. He had identified the nature of each of his sons, and of Dan he had said, "Dan will be a serpent by the roadside, a viper along the path, that bites the horse's heels so that its rider tumbles backward." A grim smile touched Ardon's broad lips. "Old Jacob got it right that time. Dan has some good soldiers, but they are not to be trusted. #Quote by Gilbert Morris
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#37. Do you think, little flower, that there will ever come a day when you regret meeting me?" he asked quietly.
"Yes," she said simply.
"I see," he said tightly.
"Would you like a specific date?"
"You are teasing me," he realized suddenly.
"No, I'm dead serious. I have an exact date in mind."
Jacob pulled back to see her eyes, looking utterly perplexed as her pupils sparkled with mischief.
"What date is that? And why are you thinking of pink elephants?"
"The date is September 8, because, according to Gideon, that's possibly the day I will go into labor. I say 'possibly,' because combining all this human/Druid and Demon DNA 'may make for a longer period of gestation than usual for a human,' as the Ancient medic recently quoted. Now, as I understand it, women always regret ever letting a man touch them on that day."
Jacob lurched to his feet, dropping her onto her toes, grabbing her by the arms, and holding her still as he raked a wild, inspecting gaze over her body.
"You are pregnant?" he demanded, shaking her a little. "How long have you known? You went into battle with that monster while you are carrying my child?"
"Our child," she corrected indignantly, her fists landing firmly on her hips, "and Gideon only just told me, like, five seconds ago, so I didn't know I was pregnant when I was fighting that thing!"
"But . . . he healed you just a few days ago! Why not tell you then?"
"Because I wasn't pregnant then, Jaco #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Jacob Portman quotes by Mira Jacob
#38. Because if you grow up to be the kind of person who asks questions about who you are, why things are the way they are, and what we could do to make them better, then you still have hope for this world, and if you still have hope, my love, then so do I. #Quote by Mira Jacob
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Grimm
#39. Hansel took his little sister by the hand, and followed the pebbles which shone like newly-coined silver pieces, and showed them the way. #Quote by Jacob Grimm
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Grimm
#40. In the meantime, when he went on his way back, the seed had grown into a tree which reached up to the sky. Then thought the peasant, 'As thou hast the chance, thou must just see what the angels are doing up there above, and for once have them before thine eyes.' So he climbed up, and saw that the angels above were threshing oats, and he looked on. #Quote by Jacob Grimm
Jacob Portman quotes by Mira Jacob
#41. Weddings are about fantasies - you understand? Your job is to photograph the fantasy, not the reality. Never the reality. If I ever see another picture like that, you're fired. #Quote by Mira Jacob
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob M. Appel
#42. Battery Park resonates with lust as the sun approaches its zenith. A primal impulse takes hold of the young couples strolling the gravel walkways, the newlyweds who have paused to admire DeModica's bronze bull, the truant teens laid out on the cool grass. Maybe because all flesh tantalizes in the early summer, in the right light, or because, at this time of year, there is more flesh exposed, midriffs, cleavage, inner thighs, the park is suddenly transformed into a dynamo of panting and groping. This desire is not the tender affection of evening, the wistful intimacy of the twilight's last gleam. It is raw, concupiscent hunger. #Quote by Jacob M. Appel
Jacob Portman quotes by Anonymous
#43. 10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. #Quote by Anonymous
Jacob Portman quotes by Cornelia Funke
#44. It hadn't been easy to reach the city where Jacob had grown up. The borders in his world were more tightly guarded than the island of the Fairies. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Braude
#45. Most of these love triangles are wrecktangles. #Quote by Jacob Braude
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Appelbaum
#46. One must acknowledge with cryptography no amount of violence will ever solve a math problem. #Quote by Jacob Appelbaum
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Latimore
#47. When you love what you do, you just really fall in love with it. Sometimes you record a lot more songs than the album will even hold. You record like 300 songs and only 12 songs go on the album. It takes time. But if you love what you do, it works out. #Quote by Jacob Latimore
Jacob Portman quotes by Thomas C. Foster
#48. I can't go as far as Barthes in killing off the author, but I'm with him on the importance of the reader. We are the ones, after all, who exist long after the author (the real, physical being) is in the grave, choosing to read the book, deciding if it still has meaning, deciding what it means for us, feeling sympathy or contempt or amusement for its people and their problems. Take just the opening paragraph. If, having read that, we decide the book isn't worth our time, then the book ceases to exist in any meaningful fashion. Someone else may cause it to live again another day in another reading, but for now, dead as Jacob Marley. Did you have any idea you held so much power? #Quote by Thomas C. Foster
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob M. Held
#49. great literature is literature that speaks to deep, fundamental human truths and experience in a way that is relatable to the reader and that may provoke engagement or facilitate insight into these truths and experiences. If these truths and experiences are about breaches of the normal, then surely horror has a place in literature, and in facts may proffer deep engagement with the most profound aspects of our existence. Sometimes only horror can say what needs to be said. #Quote by Jacob M. Held
Jacob Portman quotes by Jacob Grimm
#50. You are mine, and I am yours, and no one in the world can alter that. #Quote by Jacob Grimm
