Jive quotes by Graeme Simsion
#1. I took her in the standard jive hold that I had practised on the skeleton, and immediately felt the awkwardness, approaching revulsion, that I feel when forced into intimate contact with another human. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Jive quotes by Joni Mitchell
#2. I wanna be strong, I wanna laugh along, I wanna belong to the living. Alive, alive, I wanna get up and jive, Wanna wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Jive quotes by Zadie Smith
#3. Most of us have complicated backstories, messy histories, multiple narratives. It was a high-wire strategy, for Obama, this invocation of our collective human messiness. His enemies latched on to its imprecision, emphasizing the exotic, un-American nature of Dream City, this ill-defined place where you could be from Hawaii and Kenya, Kansas and Indonesia all at the same time, where you could jive talk like a street hustler and orate like a senator. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Jive quotes by Lil' Mama
#4. I didn't know that Left Eye's dad passed away right when she wanted to tell him that she just signed to LaFace Records. After I signed to Jive Records and just before I put out my first album, my mother passed away. It was very odd how much we had in common. #Quote by Lil' Mama
Jive quotes by Mojo Nixon
#5. People from outer space they come up to me, they don't look like Doctor Spock, they don't look like Klingons, all that Star Trek jive. They look like Elvis. #Quote by Mojo Nixon
Jive quotes by Joni Mitchell
#6. I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Traveling, traveling, traveling
Looking for something, what can it be
Oh I hate you some, I hate you some, I love you some
Oh I love you when I forget about me

I want to be strong I want to laugh along
I want to belong to the living
Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some juke box dive
Do you want - do you want - do you want to dance with me baby
Do you want to take a chance
On maybe finding some sweet romance with me baby
Well, come on

All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you too
All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you
I want to talk to you, I want to shampoo you
I want to renew you again and again
Applause, applause - Life is our cause
When I think of your kisses my mind see-saws
Do you see - do you see - do you see how you hurt me baby
So I hurt you too
Then we both get so blue.

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling
It's the unraveling
And it undoes all the joy that could be
I want to have fun, I want to shine like the sun
I want to be the one that you want to see
I want to knit you a sweater
Want to write you a love letter
#Quote by Joni Mitchell
Jive quotes by Rachael Wade
#7. I hoped Tia was different. Easier to manage for people like me, who didn't naturally jive with the little tykes. I'd only met her for a few seconds, so I had no idea what I was in for, here. All I knew was this wasn't my element, and her father had just compared me to a pregnant woman.
Wasn't there something wrong with this picture? #Quote by Rachael Wade
Jive quotes by Mur Lafferty
#8. Writing - like any art - is so damned personal that there really isn't a right way to do it. You do what works for you; what matters is getting the words on the paper. Sure, if you hear advice, and it works, then excellent. But, if it doesn't, you have to realize that perhaps nothing is wrong with you. You don't jive with the advice. #Quote by Mur Lafferty
Jive quotes by Ben Oakland
#9. I love coffee, I love tea, I love the Java Jive, and it loves me. Coffee and tea and the Java and me, A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup. #Quote by Ben Oakland
Jive quotes by Na'im Akbar
#10. When young Black boys learn that there are no limits to our possibilities on the basketball courts, we create the athletic genius of Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson and in their genius, they recreate the game of basketball. When our young people know that there are no limits to their potential in the world of manufacturing, communication, physics, chemistry or the science of the human mind, then those same young Black minds who create dances on the dance floor or compose music on their bodies with the 'hand jive' will recreate these fields of human endeavor with the same incomparability. #Quote by Na'im Akbar
Jive quotes by Count Basie
#11. I don't dig that two-beat jive the New Orleans cats play. My boys and I have to have four heavy beats to the bar and no cheating. #Quote by Count Basie
Jive quotes by William H. Macy
#12. Ninety percent of the preparation we do as actors is just jive. It doesn't do anything. #Quote by William H. Macy
Jive quotes by Mark Forsyth
#13. Wouldst like to con a glimmer with me this early black?', which he [Cab Calloway] helpfully explains as 'the proper way to ask a young lady to go to the movies'. It should be noted here, that if the object of your affections replies 'Kill me', they are not requesting to be euthanatised and you should not actually murder them. Kill me is merely the Cab Calloway way of saying 'Show me a good time' and is the best response you could have hoped for. Jive was rather confusing in this way. #Quote by Mark Forsyth
Jive quotes by William S. Burroughs
#14. Hip - Someone who knows the score. Someone who understands "jive talk." Someone who is "with it." The expression is not subject to definition because, if you don't "dig" what it means, no one can ever tell you. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Jive quotes by Billy Squier
#15. Red lights, green lights, stop and go jive. Headlines, deadlines, jamming your mind. #Quote by Billy Squier
Jive quotes by Leonard Barnes
#16. There's a little truth in all jive, and a little jive in all truth. #Quote by Leonard Barnes
Jive quotes by Jonathan Dunne
#17. Earth is such a sweet 'n sour place, thought Gonzo, puffing on his seaweed roll-up, and he knew that if aliens did exist, then they'd probably only stop to avail of this planet's toilet facilities on the intergalactic highway. #Quote by Jonathan Dunne
Jive quotes by Demetri Martin
#18. I wonder if, as a society, we will ever be able to call someone a jive tofurkey. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Jive quotes by Louis Armstrong
#19. The Brick House was one of the toughest joints I ever played in ... Guys would drink and fight one another like circle saws. Bottles would come flying over the bandstand like crazy and there was lots of plain common shooting and cutting. But somehow all that jive didn't faze me at all. I was so happy to have some place to blow my horn. #Quote by Louis Armstrong
Jive quotes by John Mayer
#20. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction. #Quote by John Mayer
Jive quotes by Stephen King
#21. Commala-come-come
There's a young man with a gun.
Young man lost his honey
When she took it on the run.

She took it on the run!
Left her baby lonely
But he baby ain't done.

The wind'll blow ya through.
Ya gotta go where ka's wind blows ya
Cause there's nothin else to do.

Nothin else to do!
Gotta go where ka's wind blows ya
Cause there's nothin else to do.

Can you tell me what ya see?
Is it ghosts or just the mirror
That makes ya wanna flee?

I beg ya, tell me!
Is it ghosts or just your darker self
That makes ya wanna flee?

Whatcha doin at my do'?
If ya doan tell me now, my friend
I'll lay ya on de flo'.

I can lay ya low!
The things I've do to such as you
You never wanna know.

Ain't it grand to be alive?
To look out on Discordia
When the Demon Moon arrives.

Even when the shadows rise!
To see the world and walk the world
Makes ya glad to be alive.

You're in a nasty fix!
To take a hand in traitor's glove
Is to grasp a sheaf of sticks!

Nothing there but thorns and sticks!
When your find your hand in #Quote by Stephen King
Jive quotes by Jonathan Dunne
#22. The closest Apollo had ever come to expressing an interest in the opposite sex was the door signs of public bathrooms. #Quote by Jonathan Dunne
Jive quotes by Ted Dekker
#23. ...we all face similar pressures to forget the simple truth of who we are. Particularly the truths that don't jive with what we see around us. As time wears us down we can forget who we once were. #Quote by Ted Dekker
Jive quotes by Langston Hughes
#24. I stay cool, and dig all jive,
That's the way I stay alive.
My motto,
as I live and learn,
Dig and be dug
In return. #Quote by Langston Hughes
Jive quotes by Vijay Seshadri
#25. When you're an immigrant, you're at the bottom of the ladder. You might not be at the bottom of the ladder economically. Those contradictions led me to feel that the role in society I was given didn't jive with my sense of myself. I think, in fact, that is the case with most people. Everybody feels themselves to be in an original relationship to creation, and feels confined by their social role. #Quote by Vijay Seshadri
Jive quotes by Jonathan Dunne
#26. Opposites attract, mom.'
'Yes, but in your case, darling, it is hydrogen and oxygen, and we all know what happened the Hindenberg.'
Just in case their daughter wasn't aware of the ill-fated zeppelin, Lambert clarified: 'This too will end in flames. #Quote by Jonathan Dunne
Jive quotes by REYoung
#27. -- all that you left behind when you signed up. when you dropped out of that world, went out on the plains with the thousands of other eager, nervous, frightened young men to push the arms of civilization farther into the darkness, and suddenly you had everybody together, raw-boned, freckle-faced crackers and big fucking spades and tough little beaners from the east side, who knows, maybe even some crazy howling ragheads from the desert, inscrutable yellow and red skins with slanted and almond and olive eyes. It didn't matter where you came from, everybody was together, you were all crazed, laughing and shouting all this bullshit jive with reefer and booze and crystal methedrine in your veins and Independence Day going off over your head. And then a shell lands right in the middle and suddenly you're sitting in the pile of smashed cherry pie and scattered limbs screaming AAAAHHHHH! AAAAHHHHH! AAAAHHHHH! over and over again because you alone were untouched, because all those other lives and all those other voices that were laughing and shouting around you a second ago stopped, and were gone forever, and you alone kept talking into the void. #Quote by REYoung
Jive quotes by Rickey Laurentiis
#28. Take It Easy"

That the light stalks your skin,
no, that your skin makes it: a radiating
hum, jive, a freedom, a beehive
packed just as much with honey as does it
hazard; also, a balm for where the sting sits,
a treaty, country upon which I first laid
my claim, but was usurped; where
carefully do I move to cross it again. Now
here come my lips to it, pink over your body's
good bark. Now here is my mouth, entire.
I'm scared of you, baby, it says, scared like a god
is of his faithful, and like the faithful. Light
-struck. Delighted. Terrorstruck. Come, lift up
your gates, your countenance spread like a lily upon me:
whip me, I am so whipped. These are my eyes. #Quote by Rickey Laurentiis
Jive quotes by Jason Harvey
#29. The contemporary music of Tina Turner might make you feel powerful and energized. South African music provides a mind-boggling choice of styles from folk tunes to jive. Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony has the magical ability to transport you to a country scene and trap you in a driving rain storm. #Quote by Jason Harvey
Jive quotes by Tim Reid
#30. What helped me get the part was that I turned it down. When I read the script, Venus was just a black guy who came in wearing a big coat and a hat and making jive talk. I'd been up for so many of those! I'd had enough of caricatures, what white writers conceive blacks to be. I told the producer I wasn't interested in doing anything like that for three or four years. He said that it was just a pilot, that Venus would be given a human dimension and would be quiet off-the-air. I wanted that input. I thought that side was as important as the comic side. For 'WKRP,' too much of either would be bad. #Quote by Tim Reid
Jive quotes by Imelda May
#31. I'm in no hurry to get old. But when I do, I'll be out to enjoy every last minute. I see myself at 90 in some nursing home, waving my walking stick about as I jive to Gene Vincent records. #Quote by Imelda May
Jive quotes by Steve Erickson
#32. But of course the Western changed along with America's view of itself, from some sort of heroic country, where everybody's free, to the spiritually fucked-up defiled place it really is, and now you got jive Italians, if you can feature that, making the only Westerns worth seeing anymore because white America's just too fucking confused, can't figure out whether to embrace the myth or the anti-myth, so in a country where folks always figured you can escape your past, now the word is out that this is the country where you can do no such thing, this is the one place where, like the jive that finally becomes impossible to distinguish from the anti-jive, honor becomes impossible to distinguish from betrayal or just, you know, stone cold murder ... #Quote by Steve Erickson
Jive quotes by Janet Frame
#33. The day is early with birds beginning and the wren in a cloud piping like the child in the poem, drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe. And the place grows bean flower, pea-green lush of grass, swarm of insects dizzily hitting the high spots; dunny rosette creeping covering shawl ream in a knitted cosy of roses; ah the tipsy wee small hours of insects that jive upon the crippled grass blades and the face of the first flower alive. #Quote by Janet Frame
Jive quotes by Elle Lothlorien
#34. Seriously, what is the purpose? Maybe I'd feel better about walking around speaking fluent jive if I knew there was a reason for it. #Quote by Elle Lothlorien
Jive quotes by David Foster Wallace
#35. Part of the reason I actually preferred Twin Peaks's second season to its first was the fascinating spectacle of watching a narrative structure disintegrate and a narrative artist freeze up and try to shuck and jive when the plot reached a point where his own weaknesses as an artist were going to be exposed (just imagine the fear: this disintegration was happening on national TV). #Quote by David Foster Wallace
