Limelight By Alcone quotes by John Lurie
#1. My musical education started in the limelight, because I found myself surrounded by real musicians, but after my career had taken off. #Quote by John Lurie
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Martin Thornton
#2. Our souls, that is our selves, are like a jumbled heap of pins: interests, thoughts, emotions, volitions, and feelings -- our life at work, our life of play, our domestic and social life, our life in the limelight, and our life alone -- all a heap of pins pointing in all directions and getting in one another's way. But the slow approach of a magnet sorts the jumble out in a remarkable way, confusion becomes a pattern, each pin points in the same direction, and all is achieved by the focus of magnetic power. It is superfluous to add that the only magnet which can sort out all the intricacies of the human soul is God. In short the state of perfect recollection is that most characteristic expression of the work of the Holy Ghost; the creation of order out of chaos. #Quote by Martin Thornton
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Andre Aciman
#3. Never in my life had I been so happy. Nothing could go wrong, everything was happening my way, all the doors were clicking open one by one, and life couldn't have been more radiant: it was shining right at me, and when I turned my bike left or right, or tried to move away from its light, it followed me as limelight follows an actor onstage. I craved him but I could just as easily live without him, and either way was fine. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Limelight By Alcone quotes by John Garfield
#4. I always wanted to be in the limelight, and I found I could get it by being on the stage. That was the beginning of everything for me. #Quote by John Garfield
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Al Pacino
#5. My first language was shy. It's only by having been thrust into the limelight that I have learned to cope with my shyness. #Quote by Al Pacino
Limelight By Alcone quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#6. The moment men begin to care more for education than for religion they begin to care more for ambition than for education. It is no longer a world in which the souls of all are equal before heaven, but a world in which the mind of each is bent on achieving unequal advantage over the other. There begins to be a mere vanity in being educated whether it be self-educated or merely state-educated. Education ought to be a searchlight given to a man to explore everything, but very specially the things most distant from himself. Education tends to be a spotlight; which is centered entirely on himself. Some improvement may be made by turning equally vivid and perhaps vulgar spotlights upon a large number of other people as well. But the only final cure is to turn off the limelight and let him realize the stars. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Sarah Sundin
#7. Only then did she realize no one was chanting or laughing or staring at her anymore. How strange that she'd dissipated the attention by accepting it and stepping into the limelight for one blissful moment. #Quote by Sarah Sundin
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#8. How often do we not scold or call ourselves to order? If our needs are utterly fulfilled, it may be that we still remain unsatisfied. By creating additional wants or artificial wishes, we generate a cascade of new desires that outshines our search for genuine needs. Through our loss of authenticity, we fade away in the vapor of pathetic shallowness or vanish into the flamboyance of trivial limelight. ("Consumers' Dream") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Ryu Murakami
#9. It was around this time that I'd begun trying to perfect the art of fucking with people's minds. I'd figured out that when someone else was hogging the limelight, you could cut him down to size by bringing up a subject he didn't know anything about. If the other person knew a lot about literature, I'd talk about the Velvet Underground; if he knew a lot about rock, I'd talk about Messiaen; if he knew a lot about classical music, I'd talk about Roy Lichtenstein; if he knew a lot about pop art, I'd talk about Jean Genet; and so on. Do that in a small provincial city and you never lose an argument. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Patrick Larkin
#10. Too many of the men and women serving in Congress were political opportunists by habit, inclination, and experience. When a president was popular, they crowded in close, hoping to share in the limelight. But at the first sign of trouble or weakness they were only too eager to join the pack baying for his blood. #Quote by Patrick Larkin
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#11. Every turning point in a person's life isn't reached by luck, they choose to be successful, they know what it takes to be there, they can do what is expected of them to do, they do not show trepidation about the requirements needed to be on top #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Limelight By Alcone quotes by John Galsworthy
#12. Every phase and question of life is brought more and more into the limelight. Theatres, cinemas, the radio, and even lectures, assist the process. But they do not, and should not replace reading, because when we are just watching and listening, somebody is taking very good care that we should not stop and think. The danger in this age is not of our remaining ignorant; it is that we should lose the power of thinking for ourselves. Problems are more and more put before us, but, except to crossword puzzles and detective mysteries, do we attempt to find the answers for ourselves? Less and less. The short cut seems ever more and more desirable. But the short cut to knowledge is nearly always the longest way round. There is nothing like knowledge, picked up by or reasoned out for oneself. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Sarah Waters
#13. Her friend - and her partner on the stage. You will not believe me, but making love to Kitty - a thing done in passion, but always, too, in shadow and silence, and with an ear half-cocked for the sound of footsteps on the stairs - making love to Kitty and posing at her side in a shaft of limelight, before a thousand pairs of eyes, to a script I knew by heart, in an attitude I had laboured for hours to perfect - these things were not so very different. A double act is always twice the act that the audience thinks it; beyond our songs, our steps, our bits of business with coins and canes and flowers, there was a private language, in which we held an endless, delicate exchange of which the crowd knew nothing. This was a language not of the tongue but of the body, its vocabulary the pressure of a finger or a palm, the nudging of a hip, the holding or breaking of a gaze, that said, You are too slow - you got too fast - not there but here - that's good - that's better! It was as if we walked before the crimson curtain, lay down upon the boards and kissed and fondled - and were clapped, and cheered, and paid for it! #Quote by Sarah Waters
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#14. I grew up in the limelight and being the child of someone famous. So my relationship with fame is not bedazzled. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Beryl Dov
#15. Voices in the Poet's Head
I have a repertory company in my head ~
each voice a vain actor vying
for his moment upon the stage,
for his 15 minutes of faux-fame
in the fading limelight. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Marco Rubio
#16. Obviously I don't agree with everything he [Donald Trump] says. There's a lot that we have a difference of opinion on. But we can't ignore that he's touched on some issues that people are concerned about. If you look at the statements he made this week, obviously I think he made them partially to recapture the limelight after having lost it. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Bernhard Goetz
#17. With my time in the limelight, I regret that I didn't use it more to push vegetarianism. I support vegetarian options in the school lunch program. #Quote by Bernhard Goetz
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Sanjay Kumar
#18. I'm very comfortable in having a strong team. I'm very comfortable in sharing the limelight with the team. #Quote by Sanjay Kumar

#19. She was one of those quiet heroes that we have all across America.They're not famous. Their names are not in the newspapers, but each and every day they work hard. They aren't seeking the limelight. All they try to do is just do the right thing. #Quote by Barack Obama

Limelight By Alcone quotes by Susan Ertz
#21. Crises have a way of thrusting into the limelight hitherto obscure persons, and giving them, for a long or short period, a leading role. #Quote by Susan Ertz
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Richard Prince
#22. Some people are better at handling the limelight than others. #Quote by Richard Prince
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Sarah Waters
#23. All unwillingly I opened my eyes - then I opened them wider, and lifted my head. The heat, my weariness, were quite forgotten. Piercing the shadows of the naked stage was a single shaft of rosy limelight, and in the centre of this there was a girl: the most marvellous girl - I knew it at once! - that I had ever seen. #Quote by Sarah Waters
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Oswald Chambers
#24. It's one thing to go through a crisis grandly, yet quite another to go through every day glorifying God when there is no witness, no limelight, and no one paying even the remotest attention to us. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#25. Life is a catwalk and brings us into the limelight of human and social interaction. It teaches us to watch sympathetically, listen responsively, and feel united with the world around us. ("With confidence ») #Quote by Erik Pevernagie

Limelight By Alcone quotes by Johnny Ramone
#32. When I was younger, I was ready to go off at any time. My wife, Linda, and I would go out to the Limelight in New York, and I would see people and be able to freeze them with a look. People were even too scared of me to tell me that people were scared of me. #Quote by Johnny Ramone

You're not going to see me giving my opinions in the public arena, until I start selling my book. I'm going to emerge then submerge. #Quote by George W. Bush
Limelight By Alcone quotes by Kareena Kapoor Khan
#37. I don't know why people feel that I am snooty. I am not a person who has ever given an interview on image building. I have never been that person, as I am very confident of what I do. People do PR, but I get completely foxed. I don't know how to do it. I stay away from the limelight, as I think my work should speak on my behalf. #Quote by Kareena Kapoor Khan

Limelight By Alcone quotes by Yasmina Khadra
#48. What to keep of all these reels of film, what to throw away? If we could only take 1 memory on our journey, what would we choose? At the expense of what or whom? And most importantly, how to choose among all these shadows, all these spectres, all these titans? Who are we, when all is said and done? Are we the people we once were or the people we wish we had been? Are we the pain we caused others or the pain we suffered at the hands of others? The encounters we missed or those fortuitous meetings that changed the course of our destiny? Our time behind the scenes that saved us form our vanity or the moment in the limelight that warmed us? We are all of these things, we are the whole life that we have lived, its highs and lows, its fortunes and its hardships, we are the sum of the ghosts that haunt us ... we are a host of characters in one, so convincing in every role we played that it is impossible for us to tell who we really were, who we have become, who we will be. #Quote by Yasmina Khadra
