Keenness quotes by James Boswell
#1. I am sensible that my keenness of temper, and a vanity to be distinguished for the day, make me too often splash in life ... I amresolved to restrain myself and attend more to decorum. #Quote by James Boswell
Keenness quotes by Helen Keller
#2. The infinite wonders of the universe are revealed to us in exact measure as we are capable of receiving them. The keenness of our vision depends not on how much we can see, but on how much we feel. #Quote by Helen Keller
Keenness quotes by Irving Stone
#3. It's not macho to read? Nonsense. Reading is a stouthearted activity, disporting courage, keenness, stick-to-itness. It is also, in my experience, one of the most thrilling and enduring delights of life, equal to a home run, a slamdunk, or breaking the four-minute mile. #Quote by Irving Stone
Keenness quotes by Anthony Trollope
#4. As the high mountains are intersected by deep valleys, as puritanism in one age begets infidelity in the next, as in many countries the thickness of the winter's ice will be in proportion to the number of the summer musquitoes, so was the keenness of the hostility displayed on this occasion in proportion to the warmth of the support which was manifested. As the great man was praised, so also was he abused. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Keenness quotes by Jeremy Collier
#5. Temperance keeps the senses clear and unembarrassed, and makes them seize the object with more keenness and satisfaction. It appears with life in the face, and decorum in the person; it gives you the command of your head, and secures your health, and preserves you in a condition for business. #Quote by Jeremy Collier
Keenness quotes by Bill Bryson
#6. To my surprise, I felt a certain springy keenness. I was ready to hike. I had waited months for this day, after all, even if it had been mostly with foreboding. I wanted to see what was out there. All over America today people would be dragging themselves to work, stuck in traffic jams, wreathed in exhaust smoke. I was going for a walk in the woods. I was more than ready for this. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Keenness quotes by Anne Catherine Emmerich
#7. Man's value before God is estimated by the dispositions of his heart, its uprightness, its good will, its charity, and not by keenness of intellect or extent of knowledge. #Quote by Anne Catherine Emmerich
Keenness quotes by Anonymous
#8. A man shall not boast of his keenness of mind, But keep it close in his breast; To the silent and wise does ill come seldom #Quote by Anonymous
Keenness quotes by Karen Horney
#9. No one ... can entirely step out of his time, that despite his keenness of vision his thinking is in many ways bound to be influenced by the mentality of his time #Quote by Karen Horney
Keenness quotes by Stephen King
#10. In small towns people scent the wind with noses of uncommon keenness. #Quote by Stephen King
Keenness quotes by Terry Pratchett
#11. So he said to young Sam: if you lose your cow you should report this to the Watch under Demonic & Farmyard Animals (Lost) Act of 1804. They will swing into action with keenness and speed. Your cow will be found. If it has been impersonating other animals, it may be arrested. If you are a stupid person, do not look for your cow yourself. Never try to milk a chicken. It hardly ever works. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Keenness quotes by Marcel Proust
#12. This compulsion to an activity without respite, without variety, without result was so cruel that one day, noticing a swelling over his stomach, he felt an actual joy in the idea that he had, perhaps, a tumor that would prove fatal, that he need not concern himself with anything further, since it was this malady that was going to govern his life, to make a plaything of him, until the not-distant end. If indeed, at his period, it often happened that, though without admitting it even to himself, he longed for death, it was in order to escape not so much from the keenness of his sufferings as from the monotony of his struggle. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Keenness quotes by William Wordsworth
#13. A lawyer art thou? Draw not nigh! Go, carry to some fitter place The keenness of that practised eye, The hardness of that sallow face. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Keenness quotes by Rosen Trevithick
#14. A man who offers to cook after he's seen you trying to freeze a dead dog has to be at least a little bit keen. #Quote by Rosen Trevithick
Keenness quotes by Priyavrat Thareja
#15. Acquiring of wisdom is a function of inquisitiveness for information and keenness for learning. Plenty of resource and the gravity of flow will ensure a momentum good enough for learning. #Quote by Priyavrat Thareja
Keenness quotes by Víctor Del Árbol
#16. It was strange to see the keenness with which men had tried to order, constrain, and systematize human passions, jealousy, rage, violent death, accusations. That was the justice system (...): the absurd pretension that human nature could be dominated by the power of the law. Reducing it all to a summary of a few pages, organizing the facts, judging it, archiving it, and forgetting it. That simple. And yet in the silence of that place you could hear the murmur of the written words, of the key players, the screams of the victims, the hatred never forgotten by either party, the pain that never went away. #Quote by Víctor Del Árbol
Keenness quotes by Paul Laurence Dunbar
#17. NOT THEY WHO SOAR Not they who soar, but they who plod Their rugged way, unhelped, to God Are heroes; they who higher fare, And, flying, fan the upper air, Miss all the toil that hugs the sod. 'Tis they whose backs have felt the rod, Whose feet have pressed the path unshod, May smile upon defeated care, Not they who soar. High up there are no thorns to prod, Nor boulders lurking 'neath the clod To turn the keenness of the share, For flight is ever free and rare; But heroes they the soil who 've trod, Not they who soar! #Quote by Paul Laurence Dunbar
Keenness quotes by Eli Siegel
#18. One of the things called forth by the Imagist movement in poetry was neatness; and when we say keenness, we mean neatness. A knife that is keen is also a knife that cuts neatly; it isn't brutal. Sharpness is different from brutality. Brutality is clumsy: it is wide - it has a lot of fist and thumb and no delicate finger. #Quote by Eli Siegel
Keenness quotes by Anthony Liccione
#19. May your sleep be your death, and your wakefulness be your heaven. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Keenness quotes by Nadine Gordimer
#20. Keenness of hearing revives when one is alone. #Quote by Nadine Gordimer
Keenness quotes by Norah Wilson
#21. Her lips parted on a shocked gasp, and he took full advantage, sweeping into her mouth. She tasted of surprise and cinnamon and an unexpected innocence, which took the edge off his anger, but did nothing to dull the keenness of his intent. He grasped her face, tilting it for better access to her mouth, and proceeded to kiss her with deliberate, frank eroticism. No gentle request, no teasing enticement, no sweet cling of lips. Just pure, driving sexual demand. #Quote by Norah Wilson
Keenness quotes by Ursula Tillmann
#22. Keenness is dangerous but also rebirth of thought and mind. Complacency is the death of ideals. Always stay keen. #Quote by Ursula Tillmann
Keenness quotes by R.J. Palacio
#23. He cleared his throat and read from the book: " 'It was at moments such as these that Joseph recognized the face of God in human form. It glimmered in their kindness to him, it glowed in their keenness, it hinted in their caring, indeed it caressed in their gaze.' " He paused and took off his reading glasses again. "It glimmered in their kindness to him," he repeated, smiling. "Such a simple thing, kindness. Such a simple thing. A nice word of encouragement given when needed. An act of friendship. A passing smile." He #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Keenness quotes by Elizabeth O'Connor
#24. [on "proportionate giving"]
Proportionate to what? Proportionate to the accumulated wealth of one's family? Proportionate to one's income and the demands upon it, which vary from family to family? Proportionate to one's sense of security and to the degree of anxiety with which one lives? Proportionate to the keenness of our awareness of those who suffer? Proportionate to our sense of justice and of God's ownership for those who follow after us...? The answer, of course, is in proportion to all of these things. #Quote by Elizabeth O'Connor
Keenness quotes by Gillian Flynn
#25. Every phrase had to be captured on paper or it wasn't real, it slipped away. I'd see the words hanging in midair
Camille, pass the milk
and anxiety coiled up in me as they began to fade, like jet exhaust. Writing them down, though, I had them. No worries that they'd become extinct. I was a lingual conservationist. I was the class freak, a tight, nervous eighth-grader frenziedly copying down phrases ("Mr. Feeney is totally gay," "Jamie Dobson is ugly," "They never have chocolate milk") with a keenness bordering on the religious. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Keenness quotes by Irving Stone
#26. Reading is a stouthearted activity, disporting courage, keenness, stick-to-it-ness. #Quote by Irving Stone
Keenness quotes by Adam Weishaupt
#27. We see with what keenness and zeal the frivolous business of Freemasons is conducted, by persons knit together by the secrecy of their union. #Quote by Adam Weishaupt
Keenness quotes by William Shakespeare
#28. No metal can
no, not the hangman's axe
bear half the keenness of thy sharp envy. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Keenness quotes by George MacDonald
#29. I wonder how many Christians there are who so thoroughly believe God made them that they can laugh in God's name; who understand that God invented laughter and gave it to his children. Such belief would add a keenness to the zest in their enjoyment, and slay that sneering laughter of which a man grimaces to the fiends, as well as that feeble laughter in which neither heart nor intellect has a share. It would help them also to understand the depth of this miracle. The Lord of gladness delights in the laughter of a merry heart. #Quote by George MacDonald
Keenness quotes by William James
#30. The exercise of voluntary attention in the schoolroom must therefore be counted one of the most important points of training that take place there; and the first-rate teacher, by the keenness of the remoter interests which he is able to awaken, will provide abundant opportunities for its occurrence. #Quote by William James
Keenness quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#31. Elrond raised his eyes and looked at him, and Frodo felt his heart pierced by the sudden keenness of the glance. 'If I understand aright all that I have heard,' he said, 'I think that this task is appointed for you, Frodo; and that if you do not find a way, no one will. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Keenness quotes by Albert Einstein
#32. Men like Henry George [ the pioneer of land value taxation] are rare, unfortunately. One cannot imagine a more beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, artistic form, and fervent love of justice. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Keenness quotes by Jessica Khoury
#33. It slowly dawns on me what it is, the sensation that has bridged the gap between how I saw the world yesterday and how I see it today. It compensates for my lost keenness and even makes everything around me a little brighter.
Hope. #Quote by Jessica Khoury
Keenness quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#34. Happiness and goodness, according to canting moralists, stand in the relation of effect and cause. There was never anything less proved or less probable: our happiness is never in our own hands; we inherit our constitution; we stand buffet among friends and enemies; we may be so built as to feel a sneer or an aspersion with unusual keenness and so circumstanced as to be unusually exposed to them; we may have nerves very sensitive to pain, and be afflicted with a disease very painful. Virtue will not help us, and it is not meant to help us. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
