Masters quotes by Steven Erikson
#1. They consider themselves masters at cheating. But then, I think this will be the first time that they sit at a table with mortal humans facing them. Cheating? When it comes to that, the Elder Gods are as children compared to humans. Since the time of my return, this much at least I have learned. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#2. In the advanced practice, the relationship between the Zen master and the student becomes very terse. The Zen master will expect things of the student because the student is in graduate school. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Masters quotes by Ali Akbar Khan
#5. Music is like a river or stream that has come down to us through time, bringing nurture to man's soul. From the past masters, this music flowed to my father and through him to me. I want to keep this stream flowing. I don't want it to die. It must spread all over the world. #Quote by Ali Akbar Khan
Masters quotes by William Shakespeare
#6. King Henry: But what a point, my lord, your falcon made, And what a pitch she flew above the rest! To see how God in all his creatures works! Yea, man and birds are fain of climbing high. Suffolk: No marvel, an it like your majesty, My lord protectors hawks do tower so well; They know their masters loves to be aloft, And bears his thoughts above his falcon's pitch. Gloucester: My lord, 'tis but a base ignoble mind That mounts no higher than a bird can soar. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Masters quotes by Alejandro Jodorowsky
#7. The only thing a master can teach is how to learn about yourself. There are no secrets. They are only techniques to waken yourself. #Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Masters quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#8. A typical master. Right to the end, he didn't give me a chance to get a word in edgeways. Which is a pity, because at that last moment I'd have liked to tell him what I thought of him. Mind you, since in that split second we were, to all intents and purposes, one and the same, I rather think he knew anyway. #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Masters quotes by Eve Masters
#9. Oh get over it Cecilia! You are no longer human. Such decorum doesn't exist amongst our kind #Quote by Eve Masters
Masters quotes by Jessica Valenti
#10. If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, it's clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young women's sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether they're acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that we're the majority of undergraduate and master's students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just don't make for good headlines, it seems. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Masters quotes by Jerry Falwell
#11. I am convinced that America can be turned around if we will all get serious about the Master's business. It may be late, but it is never too late to do what is right. We need an old-fashioned, God-honoring, Christ-exalting revival to turn American back to God. America can be saved! #Quote by Jerry Falwell
Masters quotes by K.J. Masters
#12. As soon as a person sits down in front of a medium asking for a reading they are opening a door and extending an invitation to Satan to come in. Satan is a master of disguise. #Quote by K.J. Masters
Masters quotes by Henry Wiencek
#13. Many writers on slavery today have emphasized the "agency" of the enslaved people, insisting that we pay heed to the efforts of the slaves to resist their condition and assert their humanity under a dehumanizing system. But as slaves gain "agency" in historical analyses, the masters seem to lose it. As the slaves become heroic figures, triumphing over their condition, slave owners recede as historical actors and are replaced by a faceless system of "context" and "forces." So we end up with slavery somehow afloat in a world in which nobody is responsible. #Quote by Henry Wiencek
Masters quotes by Albert Parsons
#14. Formerly the master selected the slave; today the slave selects his master. #Quote by Albert Parsons
Masters quotes by Oswald Chambers
#15. Many people begin coming to God once they stop being religious.There's only one master of the heart-Jesus, not religion. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#16. The later stages of the enlightenment process are trickier, and it is really essential to have a teacher then. You need correction, direction, and most of all you need a master's auric empowerment. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Julia Cameron
#17. Perfectionism doesn't believe in practice shots. It doesn't believe in improvement. Perfectionism has never heard that anything worth doing is worth doing badly
and that if we allow ourselves to do something badly we might in time become quite good at it. Perfectionism measures our beginner's work against the finished work of masters. Perfectionism thrives on comparison and competition. It doesn't know how to say, "Good try," or "Job well done." The critic does not believe in creative glee
or any glee at all, for that matter. No, perfectionism is a serious matter. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Masters quotes by Gautama Buddha
#18. Beware of the anger of the mouth. Master your words. Let them serve truth. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Masters quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#19. Think of such civilizations, far back in time against the fading afterglow of creation, masters of a universe so young that life as yet had come only to a handful of worlds. Theirs would have been a loneliness of gods looking out across infinity and finding none to share their thoughts. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Masters quotes by John Dryden
#20. To draw true beauty shows a master's hand. #Quote by John Dryden
Masters quotes by Laozi
#21. The ancient Masters didn't try to educate the people, but kindly taught them to not-know. When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide. When they know that they don't know, people can find their own way. If you want to learn how to govern, avoid being clever or rich. The simplest pattern is the clearest. Content with an ordinary life, you can show all people the way back to their own true nature. #Quote by Laozi
Masters quotes by Mike Norton
#22. Never say that you can't do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can't be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible #Quote by Mike Norton
Masters quotes by Edward Gibbon
#23. To resume, in a few words, the system of the Imperial government, as it was instituted by Augustus, and maintained by those princes who understood their own interest and that of the people, it may be defined an absolute monarchy disguised by the forms of a commonwealth. The masters of the Roman world surrounded their throne with darkness, concealed their irresistible strength, and humbly professed themselves the accountable ministers of the senate, whose supreme decrees they dictated and obeyed. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Masters quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#24. The dust's for crawling, heaven's for flying, Wherefore, O Soul, whose wings are grown, Soar upward to the sun! #Quote by Edgar Lee Masters
Masters quotes by Jules Verne
#25. Ah, monsieur, to live in the bosom of the sea! Only there can independence be found! There I recognize no master! There I am free! #Quote by Jules Verne
Masters quotes by Thomas More
#26. On his mounting the scaffold to be beheaded: 'I pray you, Master Lieutenant, see me safely up, and for my coming down, let me shift for myself.' To the executioner: 'Pick up thy spirits, Man, and be not afraid to do thyne office; my neck is very short; take heed, therefore thou strike not awry, for saving of thyne honesty.' #Quote by Thomas More
Masters quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#27. So that in the nature of man,
we find three principal causes of quarrel:
First, Competition;
Secondly, Dissidence;
Thirdly, Glory.
The first, maketh men invade for Gain;
the second, for Safety;
and the third, for Reputation.
The first use Violence, to make themselves Masters of other men's persons, wives, children and cattle;
the second, to defend them;
the third, for trifles, as a word, a smile, a different opinion, and any other sign of undervalue, either direct in their Persons, or by reflexion in their Kindred, their Friends, their Nation, their Profession, or their Name. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Masters quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#28. There are puppet-masters, but they are systems and ideologies, not people. As #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Masters quotes by Avery Johnson
#29. I thought I would make it (to the NBA). I believed that I would make it. But I had a Plan B. I was going to get my Master's degree at Tulane University had it not worked out. I think the pressure of making it wasn't on me as great as some other players that had no other options. I was going to do something special in life and I wanted to play in the NBA. I had a backup plan but I went full speed ahead with my Plan A. #Quote by Avery Johnson
Masters quotes by Edith Hahn Beer
#30. One class. No masters. No slaves. No black. No white. No Jew. No Christian. One race
The human race. #Quote by Edith Hahn Beer
Masters quotes by Born In Slavery: Slave Narratives From The Federal Writers Project
#31. I was owned by Johnson Bell and born in New Orleans, in Loisiana. Cordin to the bill of sale, I'm eighty-six years old, and my master was a Frenchman and was real mean to me. He ran saloon and kept bad women. I don't know nothing 'bout my folks, if I had any, 'crept my mama. They done tell me she was a bad woman and a French Creole.
I worked 'round master's saloon, kep everything cleaned up after they'd have all night drinkin' parties, men and women. #Quote by Born In Slavery: Slave Narratives From The Federal Writers Project
Masters quotes by George MacDonald
#32. If those who had set themselves to explain the various theories of Christianity had set themselves instead to do the will of the Master, how different the world would be now! #Quote by George MacDonald
Masters quotes by Daniel Quinn
#33. I didn't want a guru or a kung fu master or a spiritual director. I didn't want to become a sorcerer or learn the zen of archery or meditate or align my chakras or uncover mast incarnations ... I was after something else entirely, but it wasn't in the Yellow Pages or anywhere else that I could discover. #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Masters quotes by Arthur Scargill
#34. My father still reads the dictionairy every day. He says your life depends on your power to master words #Quote by Arthur Scargill
Masters quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#35. Those ignorant "masters of our destinies" who regard humans as animals or as monstrous hybrids of natural and supernatural must be dethroned by scientific education.

Humans can be literally poisoned by false ideas and false teachings. Many people have a just horror at the thought of putting poison into tea or coffee, but seem unable to realize that, when they teach false ideas and false doctrines, they are poisoning the time-binding capacity of their fellow men and women. One has to stop and think! #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Masters quotes by Wayne Dyer
#36. People need to learn how to respond to each other's hatreds with love - which is what Jesus taught us, which is what Buddha came here to teach us, which is what Muhammad taught us, which is what all of the great spiritual masters who have ever walked among us who live at those highest energies taught us - responding to force with more force will just create more problems. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Masters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#37. To demand of strength that it should not express itself as strength, that it should not be a desire to overcome, a desire to throw down, a desire to become master, a thirst for enemies and resistances and triumphs, is just as absurd as to demand of weakness that it should express itself as strength. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Masters quotes by Gustave Courbet
#38. I have studied the art of the masters and the art of the moderns, avoiding any preconceived system and without prejudice. I have no more wanted to imitate the former than to copy the latter; nor have I thought of achieving the idle aim of art for art's sake. #Quote by Gustave Courbet
Masters quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#39. Spirituality is indeed the master key of the Indian mind; the sense of the infinitive is native to it. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Masters quotes by Martin Farquhar Tupper
#40. If thou art master to thyself, circumstances shall harm thee little. #Quote by Martin Farquhar Tupper
Masters quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#41. Any watching the battle would have found no breath in the next few blurring moments. Never had the Underdark witnessed such a vicious fight as when these two masters of the blade each attacked the demon possessing the other - and himself. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Masters quotes by Hozier
#42. No masters or kings when the ritual begins [making love]
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean #Quote by Hozier
Masters quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#43. Are we really servants when we can become masters again once we think we have done our part or made our contribution? Are we really servants when we can say when, where, and how long we will give of our time and energy? Is service in a far country really an expression of servanthood when we keep enough money in the bank to fly home at any moment? #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Masters quotes by Salman Rushdie
#44. Well, there they were, the masters of the earth, canned like tuna on wheels and blind as bats, their heads full of mischief and their newspapers of blood. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Masters quotes by Jacques Mieses
#45. Many an expert says that there is a certain affinity between (Capablanca's style) and that of the world master, Lasker. There may be some truth in it. Lasker's style is clear water, but with a drop of poison which is clouding it. Capablanca's style is perhaps still clearer, but it lacks that drop of poison. #Quote by Jacques Mieses
Masters quotes by Blaise Pascal
#46. The authority of reason is far more imperious than that of a master; for he who disobeys the one is unhappy, but he who disobeys the other is a fool. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#47. An enlightened master is a perpetual source of the cosmic light because his mind is always merged with nirvana. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#48. It would have been much more fortunate had the Persians become masters of the Greeks, rather than have the Romans of all people assume that role. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Masters quotes by Richard J. Foster
#49. One remarkable feature of the devotional masters is the incredible sense of uniform witness in the midst of such diverse personalities ... and the necessity of Christian simplicity is one of their most consistent themes. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#50. Let the rain of unhappy and tragic experiences fall, as sometimes it inevitably must, even in the lives of the enlightened masters. If your mind has become one with nirvana, you will remain happy at all times. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Robert Greene
#51. Such is the fate, in some form or other, of all those who unbalance the master's sense of self, poke holes in his vanity, or make him doubt his pre-eminence. #Quote by Robert Greene
Masters quotes by Jack London
#52. You are one with a crowd of men who have made what they call a government, who are masters of all the other men, and who eat the food the other men get and would like to eat themselves. You wear the warm clothes. They made the clothes, but they shiver in rags and ask you, the lawyer, or business agent who handles your money, for a job.
'But that is beside the matter,' I cried.
Not at all. It is piggishness and it is life. Of what use or sense is an immortality of piggishness? What is the end? What is it all about? You have made no food. Yet the food you have eaten or wasted might have saved the lives of a score of wretches who made the food but did not eat it. What immortal end did you serve? Or did they? #Quote by Jack London
Masters quotes by Kevin Shields
#53. The French were always masters at mid-range. And I like the attitude. #Quote by Kevin Shields
Masters quotes by Jurgen Moltmann
#54. Even the disciples of Jesus all fled from their master's cross. Christians who do not have the feeling that they must flee the crucified Christ have probably not yet understood him in a sufficiently radical way. #Quote by Jurgen Moltmann
Masters quotes by Samuel Richardson
#55. The English, the plain English, of the politest address of a gentleman to a lady is, I am now, dear Madam, your humble servant: Pray be so good as to let me be your Lord and Master. #Quote by Samuel Richardson
Masters quotes by Kenneth Rexroth
#56. Any talented decadent can make unreality believable. To make reality convincing is another matter, a matter for only the greatest masters. #Quote by Kenneth Rexroth
Masters quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#57. MAJESTY, n. The state and title of a king. Regarded with a just contempt by the Most Eminent Grand Masters, Grand Chancellors, Great Incohonees and Imperial Potentates of the ancient and honorable orders of republican America. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Masters quotes by Plato
#58. He who is not a good servant will not be a good master. #Quote by Plato
Masters quotes by Yvon Chouinard
#59. At Patagonia, making a profit is not the goal because the Zen master would say profits happen 'when you do everything else right'. #Quote by Yvon Chouinard
Masters quotes by Joseph Kanon
#60. At graduation, I assumed I'd be in publishing, but first I went to England and got a master's degree in English Literature. And then I came back to New York and had a series of publishing jobs, the way one does. #Quote by Joseph Kanon
Masters quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#61. There is an old Greek saying that men are tormented not by things themselves but by what they think about them. If that assertion could be proved to be always true everywhere it would be an important point gained of the comforting of our wretched human condition. For if ills can only enter us through our judgemente it would seem to be in our power either to despise them or to deflect them towards the good: if the things actually do trow themselves on our mercy why do we not act as their masters and accomodate them to our advantage? If what we call evil or torment are only evil or torment insofar as our mental apprehension endows them with those qualities when it lies within our power to change those qualities. And if we did have such a choice and were free from constraint we would be curiously mad to pull in the direction which hurst us most, endowing sickness, poverty or insolence with a bad and bitter taste when we could give them a pleasent one, Fortune simply furnishing us with the matter and leaving it to us to supply the form. Let us see whether a case can be made for what we call evil not being an evil in itself or (since it amounts to the same) whether at least it is up to us to endow it with a different savour and aspect. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Masters quotes by Tiger Woods
#62. Sad to say I'm missing the Masters. Thanks to the fans for so many kind wishes. #Quote by Tiger Woods
Masters quotes by Indro Montanelli
#63. Which ever one of you will want to become a journalist, let him remember to choose his own master: the reader. #Quote by Indro Montanelli
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#64. Being a siddha master is indeed a great accomplishment, but it is not the same as being enlightened. People confuse siddha masters, who have the power to perform miracles, with enlightened masters who can enter into samadhi. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#65. Master Seneca says that 'No one can wear a mask for very long.' This is true; but someone can wear different masks for very long! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Masters quotes by Bertrand Russell
#66. The conception of duty, speaking historically, has been a means used by the holders of power to induce others to live for the interests of their masters rather than for their own. Of course the holders of power conceal this fact from themselves by managing to believe that their interests are identical with the larger interests of humanity. Sometimes this is true; Athenian slave owners, for instance, employed part of their leisure in making a permanent contribution to civilization which would have been impossible under a just economic system. Leisure is essential to civilization, and in former times leisure for the few was only rendered possible by the labors of the many. But their labors were valuable, not because work is good, but because leisure is good. And #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Masters quotes by Anne Leonard
#67. A man who would kill himself rather than face capture was a man who had a cause. Or a man who was afraid of what his own masters would do to him for having botched the job. #Quote by Anne Leonard
Masters quotes by Zlazloj Zlizlek
#68. Hapiness was never important. The problem is that we don't know what we really want. What makes us happy is not to get what we want. But to dream about it. Hapiness is for opportunists. So I think the only life of deep satisfaction is a life of eternal struggle, specially struggle with oneself. If you want to be happy, just remain stupid. Authentic masters are never happy, hapiness is a category of slaves. #Quote by Zlazloj Zlizlek
Masters quotes by Terry Carr
#69. If the Holy Bible was printed as an Ace Double it would be cut down to two 20,000-word halves with the Old Testament retitled as 'Master of Chaos' and the New Testament as 'The Thing With Three Souls. #Quote by Terry Carr
Masters quotes by Kim Il-sung
#70. In a nutshell, the idea of Juche means that the masters of the revolution and the work of construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive force of the revolution and the work of construction. In other words, one is responsible for one's own destiny and one has also the capacity for hewing out one's own destiny. #Quote by Kim Il-sung
Masters quotes by Mambo Chita Tann
#71. televangelist Pat Robertson took to the world's airwaves and tried to suggest that the earthquake was God's vengeance for the Haitian Revolution, alleging that the slaves had sold their souls to Satan at Bwa Kayiman in return for the power to overthrow their masters. #Quote by Mambo Chita Tann
Masters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#72. Every master has but one disciple, and that one becomes unfaithful to him, for he too is destined for master-ship. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Masters quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#73. Only dogs know and respect their masters. This is a rare characteristic of men who secretly envy their masters and wish their downfall. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Masters quotes by Audre Lorde
#74. As women, we have come to distrust that power which rises from our deepest and nonrational knowledge. We have been warned against it all our lives by the male world, which values this depth of feeling enough to keep women around in order to exercise it in the service of men, but which fears this same depth too much to examine the possibility of it within themselves. So women are maintained at a distant/inferior position to be psychically milked, much the same way ants maintain colonies of aphids to provide a life-giving substance for their masters #Quote by Audre Lorde
Masters quotes by Adam Smith
#75. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Masters quotes by Mark Helprin
#76. How just it would be if for our final reward we were to be made the masters of time, and if those we love could come alive again not just in memory, but in truth. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Masters quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#77. If the secret core of potlatch is the reciprocity of exchange, why is this reciprocity not asserted directly, why does it assume the "mystified" form of two consecutive acts each of which is staged as a free voluntary display of generosity? Here we encounter the paradoxes of forced choice, of freedom to do what is necessary, at its most elementary: I have to do freely what I am expected to do. (If, upon receiving a gift, I immediately return it to the giver, this direct circulation would amount to an extremely aggressive gesture of humiliation, it would signal that I refused the other's gifts - recall those embarrassing moments when elderly people forget and give us last year's present once again … )

…the reciprocity of exchange is in itself thoroughly ambiguous; at its most fundamental, it is destructive of the social bond, it is the logic of revenge, tit for tat. To cover this aspect of exchange, to make it benevolent and pacific, one has to pretend that each person's gift is free and stands on its own. This brings us to potlatch as the "pre-economy of the economy," its zero-level, that is, exchange as the reciprocal relation of two non-productive expenditures. If the gift belongs to Master and exchange to the Servant, potlatch is the paradoxical exchange between Masters. Potlach is simultaneously the zero-level of civility, the paradoxical point at which restrained civility and obscene consumption overlap, the point at which it is polite to behave impolitely. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Masters quotes by Anya Kamenetz
#78. There is certainly the intention of efforts like the Common Core to raise education standards and make sure that every student masters advanced math concepts - algebra, geometry, statistics and probability. #Quote by Anya Kamenetz
Masters quotes by Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton
#79. Master books, but do not let them master you. Read to live, not live to read. #Quote by Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton
Masters quotes by Lyndon LaRouche
#80. The ruling British elite are like animals
not only in their morality, but in their outlook on knowledge. They are clever animals, who are masters of the wicked nature of their own species, and recognize ferally the distinctions of the hated human species. Nonetheless, obsessively dedicated to being such animals, they can not [sic] assimilate those qualities unique to true human beings. #Quote by Lyndon LaRouche
Masters quotes by Bob Goalby
#81. You win all the Tucsons, all the Kemps, all the Iron City Opens you can, nobody remembers. You win a Masters, nobody ever forgets #Quote by Bob Goalby
Masters quotes by Masters Of Minecraft
#82. Secret Minecraft Tricks 41-48 Who Turned Out The Lights -If you're in a room lit up only by lava, it's a good idea to place a few torches around before you extinguish it. The View Up Here Is Great -Tree houses are fun to build, but sometimes hard to find, be sure to remember their location. I Love Fishing -Since fish are unlimited in quantity, it's always a good time to go fishing. Just Like My Neighborhood -Watch out when you're killing zombie pigmen, whenever you attack one, you will find others will quickly close in, and gang up against you. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch!

#83. Thou wert wise to chisel for me:
«Taken from the evil to come». #Quote by Edgar Lee Masters
Masters quotes by Seneca.
#84. You must linger among a limited number of master thinkers, and digest their works, if you would derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind. #Quote by Seneca.
Masters quotes by June Masters Bacher
#85. Stop building tomorrow's roads on today's grounds. #Quote by June Masters Bacher
Masters quotes by Frederick Douglass
#86. These dear souls came not to Sabbath school because it was popular to do so, nor did I teach them because it was reputable to be thus engaged. Every moment they spent in that school, they were liable to be taken up, and given thirty-nine lashes. They came because they wished to learn. Their minds had been starved by their cruel masters. They had been shut up in mental darkness. I taught them, because it was the delight of my soul to be doing something that looked like the bettering the condition of my race #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Masters quotes by Anthony De Mello
#87. What can I do to see Reality as it is?" The master smiled and said, "I have good news and bad news for you, my friend." "What's the bad news?" "There's nothing you can do to see it is a gift." "And what's the good news?" "There's nothing you can do to see it is a gift. #Quote by Anthony De Mello
Masters quotes by Tony Dovale
#88. If it is to BE today, it's totally UP TO me NOW. Time for SWIFT Actions, with Fierce Focus, on CLEAR Goals. Time for a Mindset Reset? #Quote by Tony Dovale
Masters quotes by Francis Bacon
#89. Velazquez found the perfect balance between the ideal illustration which he was required to produce, and the overwhelming emotion he aroused in the spectator. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Masters quotes by Richard Dawkins
#90. Words are our servants, not our masters. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Masters quotes by Frank Rich
#91. No one is better placed or more philosophically suited than Obama to construct the new counter narrative as we go forward in our new New Deal. But many masters of the old universe, including quite possibly his chief economic adviser, can't recognize that the world has changed or should change. #Quote by Frank Rich
Masters quotes by Rajneesh
#92. A real Master is not a teacher: a real Master is an awakener. His function is totally different from a teacher; his function is far more difficult. And only very few people can stay with a Master because to wake up after millions of lives is not an ordinary feat; it is a miracle. And to allow somebody to wake you up needs great trust, great surrender. #Quote by Rajneesh
Masters quotes by Kent Beck
#93. I've known people who have not mastered their tools who are good programmers, but not a tool master who remained a mediocre programmer. #Quote by Kent Beck
Masters quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#94. You may never get to touch the Master, but you can tickle his creatures. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Masters quotes by James Lipton
#95. We are the only school in America, drama school in America that trains actors, writers and directors side by side for three years in a master's degree program, and we want them - to expose them to everything. #Quote by James Lipton
Masters quotes by Rajneesh
#96. This word 'individual' is beautiful; it means indivisible. Right now as you are, you are divided. You are only many fragments clinging together anyhow without any center being there, without any master in the house, with only servants. And for a moment any servant can become the master. #Quote by Rajneesh
Masters quotes by Kallypso Masters
#97. That a healthy BDSM or kink relationship involves building a deep trust in each other, open and honest communication, using safewords, negotiating and sharing your hard and soft limits, and always involves activities mutually consented upon between adults. #Quote by Kallypso Masters
Masters quotes by Marguerite Duras
#98. Alcohol doesn't console, it doesn't fill up anyone's psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn't comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny. #Quote by Marguerite Duras
Masters quotes by Martin Page
#99. It's easier to get your high school diploma, become a police inspector, or get your master's degree in literature than to commit suicide. The success rate is less than eight percent. #Quote by Martin Page
Masters quotes by Ibn Taymiyyah
#100. As for the people of Tasawwuf, they affirm the love of Allah, and this is more evident among them than all other issues ... the affirmation of the love of Allah is well-known in the speech of their [old] and recent masters, just as it is affirmed in the Holy Qur'an and the Sunnah and in agreement of the ways of the early generation (Salaf) #Quote by Ibn Taymiyyah
Masters quotes by Frederick Lenz
#101. Find a teacher of Tantric Zen and study with them because it is transference of awareness, a sharing of the perception of the beauty of life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Masters quotes by Gozo Shioda
#102. Today's aikido is so dimensionless. It's hollow, empty on the inside. People try to reach the highest levels without even paying their dues. That's why it seems so much like a dance these days. You have to master the very basics solidly, with your body, and then proceed to develop to the higher levels ... Now we see nothing but copying or imitation without any grasp of the real thing ... #Quote by Gozo Shioda
Masters quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#103. When the master has come to do everything through the slave, the slave becomes his master, since he cannot live without him. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Masters quotes by Dean Koontz
#104. Like children, dogs want discipline and are most secure when they have rules to live by. The happiest dogs are those with gentle masters who quietly but firmly demand respect. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Masters quotes by Brad Pitt
#105. I've been in these tabloids for 14 years now, and at some point you just become a Zen master of it all #Quote by Brad Pitt
Masters quotes by David Jeremiah
#106. When we take voice lessons from the Master, we learn to speak with tenderness. #Quote by David Jeremiah
Masters quotes by Oswald Chambers
#107. Am I learning how to use my Bible? The way to become complete for the Master's service is to be well soaked in the Bible; some of us only exploit certain passages. Our Lord wants to give us continuous instruction out of His word; continuous instruction turns hearers into disciples. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Masters quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#108. I think if you're going to master policy, especially world affairs, you've got to know history. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Masters quotes by Jean Guitton
#109. When I read the documents relative to the Modernism, as it was defined by Saint Pius X, and when I compare them to the documents of the II Vatican Council, I cannot help being bewildered. For what was condemned as heresy in 1906 was proclaimed as what is and should be from now on the doctrine and method of the Church. In other words, the modernists of 1906 were, somewhat, precursors to me. My masters were part of them. My parents taught me Modernism. How could Saint Pius X reject those that now seem to be my precursors? #Quote by Jean Guitton
Masters quotes by Gogen Yamaguchi
#110. It's easy to listen to what you are taught. But it's difficult to find what you have within yourself and master it as yor own. #Quote by Gogen Yamaguchi
Masters quotes by Mark Hopkins
#111. Guided by His wisdom, strong in His strength, there maybe for you struggle and suffering, the darkness and the storm. "The disciple is not above His Master." There may be weeping that shall endure for a night, but joy shall come in the morning. If the night cometh, so also the morning, "a morning without clouds," the morning of an eternal day. #Quote by Mark Hopkins
Masters quotes by Dennis McKinsey
#112. Biblical backing for Mormon behavior is easy to find, although Mark Twain is reported to have denied its legitimacy to a Mormon. The Mormon claimed polygamy was perfectly moral and he defied Twain to cite any passage of Scripture which forbade it. 'Well,' said Twain, 'how about that passage that tells us no man can serve two masters at the same time?' #Quote by Dennis McKinsey
Masters quotes by Tom Metzger
#113. As far as the targets hit by the Islamic attackers, I do not consider the WTC a U.S. institution, but the headquarters of most that's wrong with our present masters. #Quote by Tom Metzger
Masters quotes by Andy Andrews
#114. When I choose to smile I become the master of my emotions. #Quote by Andy Andrews
Masters quotes by Kenneth G. Mills
#115. The fire of the diamond of true Identity is always there; it just needs the Master's crafting to reveal it. #Quote by Kenneth G. Mills
Masters quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#116. Die Judenfrage,' it used to be called, even by Jews. 'The Jewish Question.' I find I quite like this interrogative formulation, since the question - as Gertrude Stein once famously if terminally put it - may be more absorbing than the answer. Of course one is flirting with calamity in phrasing things this way, as I learned in school when the Irish question was discussed by some masters as the Irish 'problem.' Again, the word 'solution' can be as neutral as the words 'question' or 'problem,' but once one has defined a people or a nation as such, the search for a resolution can become a yearning for the conclusive. Endlösung: the final solution. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Masters quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#117. In daily life what distinguishes the master is the using those materials he has, instead of looking about for what are more renowned, or what others have used well. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Masters quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#118. A man cannot serve two masters: so it is either reason or the scriptures.

Masters quotes by Michael Ayrton
#119. Michelangelo's contemporaries thought him the greatest artist who ever lived and called him 'divine.' His reputation as sculptor, architect, painter and draughtsman has not subsequently been surpassed, and who is to say his contemporaries were wrong? #Quote by Michael Ayrton
Masters quotes by Jen Frederick
#120. Masters, this won't go anywhere."
He draws back slightly and frowns. "Is that how you think of me? As Masters? I'm not your teammate."
"I'm not anything to you."
The side of his mouth quirks up. "That's what you think. #Quote by Jen Frederick

Masters quotes by L.L. Raand
#122. Tell your masters the Alpha of the Timberwolf Pack says these streets are mine. This city, this territory is mine. If you sell drugs to poison my wolves, I will come for you. If you threaten my Pack, I will come for you. If you break the laws of my Pack land, I will come for you. The challenge is issued. And I will not be as quick as I was with this cur. Now go. #Quote by L.L. Raand
Masters quotes by Louis De Montfort
#123. Chosen soul, how will you bring this about? What steps will you take to reach the high level to which God is calling you? The means of holiness and salvation are known to everybody, since they are found in the Gospel; the masters of the spiritual life have explained them; the Saints have practiced them ... These means are: sincere humility, unceasing prayer, complete self-denial, abandonment to Divine Providence, and obedience to the will of God. #Quote by Louis De Montfort
Masters quotes by T.S. Eliot
#124. Polyphiloprogenitive
The sapient sutlers of the Lord
Drift across the window-panes.
In the beginning was the Word.

In the beginning was the Word.
Superfetation of to en,
And at the mensual turn of time
Produced enervate Origen.

A painter of the Umbrian school
Designed upon a gesso ground
The nimbus of the Baptized God.
The wilderness is cracked and browned



But through the water pale and thin
Still shine the unoffending feet
And there above the painter set
The Father and the Paraclete.



. . . . . .



The sable presbyters approach
The avenue of penitence;
The young are red and pustular
Clutching piaculative pence.



Under the penitential gates
Sustained by staring Seraphim
Where the souls of the devout
Burn invisible and dim.



Along the garden-wall the bees
With hairy bellies pass between
The staminate and pistilate,
Blest office of the epicene.



Sweeney shifts from ham to ham
Stirring the water in his bath.
The masters of the subtle schools
Are controversial, polymath. #Quote by T.S. Eliot
Masters quotes by William Barclay
#125. Prayer is not flight, prayer is power. Prayer does not deliver a man from some terrible situation; prayer enables a man to face and to master the situation. #Quote by William Barclay
Masters quotes by Ching Hai
#126. Sometimes, if we are faced with obstacles, be they tangible or not, such as jealousy, worldly sentiment, greed, hatred or obsession, etc., there is no other way to overcome them except by practicing more diligently. You need to read Master's books and to listen to Master's tapes more often, meditate more, do Quan Yin more, put more effort into your practice and concentrate more on the path of practice. It is safe only when you are sheltered by the supreme power, no other way. #Quote by Ching Hai
Masters quotes by EL Seed
#127. "eL Seed" was inspired by the French play Le Cid by Pierre Corneille. It was seeing "Le Cid" coming from the Arabic name "el sayed," which means "the master, the man." So I called myself like that because I was 16; I said, "Yes, I'm the man." That's how it started. #Quote by EL Seed
Masters quotes by Jonathan Swift
#128. The translators of the Bible were masters of an English style much fitter for that work than any we see in our present writings; the which is owing to the simplicity that runs through the whole. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Masters quotes by Jose Raul Capablanca
#129. Alekhine evidently possesses the most remarkable chess memory that has ever existed. It is said that he remembers by heart all the games played by the leading masters during the last 15-20 years. #Quote by Jose Raul Capablanca
Masters quotes by Colleen Masters
#130. He rises like a storybook hero out of the darkness - of course, his armor is of leather and ink, rather than chain mail. #Quote by Colleen Masters
Masters quotes by Paul Halmos
#131. The student skit at Christmas contained a plaintive line: "Give us Master's exams that our faculty can pass, or give us a faculty that can pass our Master's exams." #Quote by Paul Halmos
Masters quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#132. To put meaning in one's life may end in madness,
But life without meaning is the torture
Of restlessness and vague desire
It is a boat longing for the sea and yet afraid. #Quote by Edgar Lee Masters
Masters quotes by K.J. Masters
#133. Don't argue with the person who puts his knowledge above everyone's else's; you'll always lose in that respect. But, in reality, he is the loser because he has put himself in a position where he can longer learn and therefore he can no longer grow and prosper! Be humble and open to always being a student, and you will continue to grow wise throughout your days! #Quote by K.J. Masters
Masters quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#134. The gossip will carry to Attolian spies, who will report to Relius, Attolia's master of spies, and he will carry the news to her."
"Her secretary of the archives," murmured the magus.
"Hmm?" asked the queen.
"Secretary of the archives, Relius. Master of spies is so-"
"Accurate?"
"Overtly direct," said the magus.
Eddis laughed. #Quote by Megan Whalen Turner
Masters quotes by Ed Balls
#135. I don't think I've ever sent a text to Gordon Brown because I'm confident that he would absolutely have no idea how to receive it. He barely managed to master WordPerfect 4.1. #Quote by Ed Balls
Masters quotes by Anthony De Mello
#136. The Master would insist that the final barrier to our attaining God was the word and concept God. #Quote by Anthony De Mello
Masters quotes by Franz Kafka
#137. The animal wrests the whip from its master and whips itself in order to become master, not knowing that this is only a fantasy produced by a new knot in the master's whiplash. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Masters quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#138. For the life of us all - whether we be star or starfish - is made of four ingredients, ingredients that can be found in the recipe to Alice's hot-milk cake.

Those ingredients are earth, fire, air, and water. But as Theo walked down the snowy vein of Cockle Cove Road and into the arctic air that surrounded the sea, he sensed that fifth element, which poets and religions and pregnant women and jazz musicians point to - that fifth element of spirit.

He sensed that fifth ingredient with the cat. Surely, she is knowing. Surely, she has a soul. As the snowflakes dropped onto his pea coat, Theo thought that this was not only the snow descending upon the mantel of his coat, but the sacred ephemerals that he, like Ahanu and Reverend Cummings, believed ran through all living things. It was the fifth element of which the great masters - Moses, Socrates, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, and Big Thunder - spoke. The Sacral Spirit. We were put on this magical planet, not to dominate and consume her, but to care for her and love her. To harrow gently. To harvest gratefully. To build reasonably. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Masters quotes by Richard J. Mouw
#139. Here is Max De Pree at his best, and that is very good indeed. In Leading Without Power, De Pree shows us why we cannot master the how-to-dos of effective leadership without also being clear about what leaders?and followers?must be. In doing so, he not only provides us with much practical wisdom about creative leading and organizational health, he also nurtures our souls. This is a book to be savored by all who care about such things as vision, faithfulness, trust, and hope. #Quote by Richard J. Mouw
Masters quotes by Jay Roach
#140. I wish I was sort of someone like Woody Allen who can stage everything in one long master shot, no coverage; just, you know, that's it. #Quote by Jay Roach
Masters quotes by Donald L. Hicks
#141. We may have pets, but when it comes to unconditional love, they are the masters. #Quote by Donald L. Hicks
Masters quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#142. BELOVED fellow-servants of Christ, our work requires us to be in the best possible condition of heart. When we are at our best, we are feeble enough; we would not, therefore, fall below our highest point. As instruments, we owe all our power for usefulness to the Divine hand; but, since tools should always be kept in order, we would have our spirit free from rust, and our mind sharp of point and keen of edge to answer at once to the Master's will. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Masters quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#143. We should not only master questions, but also act upon them, and act definitely. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Masters quotes by E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax
#144. When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters. #Quote by E. F. L. Wood, 1st Earl Of Halifax
Masters quotes by Joan Crawford
#145. Mr. Cukor is a hard task-master, a fine director and he took me over the coals giving me the roughest time I have ever had. And I am eternally grateful. #Quote by Joan Crawford
Masters quotes by Edgar Lee Masters
#146. My name used to be in the papers daily
As having dined somewhere,
Or traveled somewhere,
Or rented a house in Paris,
Where I entertained the nobility.
I was forever eating or traveling,
Or taking the cure at Baden-Baden.
Now I am here to do honor
To Spoon River, here beside the family whence I sprang.
No one cares now where I dined,
Or lived, or whom I entertained,
Or how often I took the cure at Baden-Baden! #Quote by Edgar Lee Masters
Masters quotes by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
#147. In the last stage of the spiritual master's life, the devotees of the spiritual master should take preaching activities into their own hands. In this way the spiritual master can sit down in a solitary place and render nirjana-bhajana. #Quote by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Masters quotes by George Leonard
#148. Mastery is a journey, and that the master must have the courage to risk failure. #Quote by George Leonard
Masters quotes by Jane Fonda
#149. We cannot always control our thoughts, but we can control our words, and repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation. #Quote by Jane Fonda
Masters quotes by Joseph Hall

Masters quotes by Daniel Abraham

Masters quotes by Robert Greene
#152. It is the fool who always rushes to take sides. Do not commit to any side or cause by yourself. By maintaining your independence, you become the master of others - playing people against one another, making them pursue you. #Quote by Robert Greene
Masters quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#153. Enlightenment, understood in the widest sense as the advance of thought, has always aimed at liberating human beings from fear and installing them as masters. Yet the wholly enlightened earth is radiant with triumphant calamity. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Masters quotes by Victor Niederhoffer
#154. Only those with passion can become masters. #Quote by Victor Niederhoffer
Masters quotes by Philip Guston
#155. The things I felt ... about certain painters of the past that ... inspired me, like Cezanne and Manet ... that complete losing of oneself in the work to such an extent that the work itself ... felt as if a living organism was posited there on the canvas, on this surface ... That's truly ... the act of creation. #Quote by Philip Guston
Masters quotes by Albert Camus
#156. That is the answer to the question which is always being asked: why has
the revolutionary movement identified itself with materialism rather than with idealism? Because to
conquer God, to make Him a slave, amounts to abolishing the transcendence that kept the former masters
in power and to preparing, with the ascendancy of the new tyrants, the advent of the man-king. When
poverty is abolished, when the contradictions of history are resolved, "the real god, the human god, will
be the State." Then homo homini lupus becomes homo homini deus. This concept is at the root of the
contemporary world. #Quote by Albert Camus
Masters quotes by Tilda Swinton
#157. I think of great masters, like [Alfred] Hitchcock, for example, who works absolutely within this sensational realm. You feel like you can always tell what temperature a room is in a Hitchcock film because the people feel alive, they don't feel like they're just being filmed on a stage. #Quote by Tilda Swinton
Masters quotes by Ellen G. White
#158. The things of nature are the Lord's silent ministers, given to us to teach us spiritual truths. They speak to us of the love of God and declare the wisdom of the great Master Artist. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Masters quotes by Adam Mickiewicz
#159. I am the master! I stretch forth my hands, even to the skies! I lay my hands upon the stars, as on the crystal wheels of the harmonica. Now fast, now slow, as my soul wills, I turn the stars. I weave them into rainbows, harmonies. I feel immortality! I create immortality! #Quote by Adam Mickiewicz
Masters quotes by Dan Millman
#160. Masters of one art have mastered all because they have mastered themselves. With dominion over both mind and muscle, they demonstrate power, serenity, and spirit. They not only have talent for their sport, they have an expanded capacity for life. The experts shine in the competitive arena; the masters shine everywhere. #Quote by Dan Millman
Masters quotes by Kallypso Masters
#161. Ask forgiveness, not permission. #Quote by Kallypso Masters
Masters quotes by Walter Pach
#162. The form and color which guide men experienced in the study of the masters are not always recognized by laymen. Yet they can feel the genuineness of an artist's response to the life they know. #Quote by Walter Pach
Masters quotes by Thomas M. Disch
#163. But the toaster was quite satisfied with itself, thank you. Though it knew from magazines that there were toasters who could toast four slices at a time, it didn't think that the master, who lived alone and seemed to have few friends, would have wanted a toaster of such institutional proportions. With toast, it's quality that matters, not quantity. #Quote by Thomas M. Disch
Masters quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#164. True masters are those who've chosen to make a life rather than a living. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Masters quotes by Eric Temple Bell
#165. In his wretched life of less than twenty-seven years Abel accomplished so much of the highest order that one of the leading mathematicians of the Nineteenth Century (Hermite, 1822-1901) could say without exaggeration, 'Abel has left mathematicians enough to keep them busy for five hundred years.' Asked how he had done all this in the six or seven years of his working life, Abel replied, 'By studying the masters, not the pupils. #Quote by Eric Temple Bell
Masters quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche

Masters quotes by A. L. Kennedy
#168. As every languageless, stateless, selfless nation has one last, twisted image of its worst and best, we have the ceilidh. Here we pretend we are Highland, pretend we have mysteries in our work, pretend we have work. We forget our record of atrocities wherever we have been made masters and become comfortable servants again. Our present and our past creep in to change each other and we feel angry and sad and Scottish. Perhaps we feel free. #Quote by A. L. Kennedy
Masters quotes by Marc Grossberg
#169. Large firms are interesting places, Mr. Moran. They are their own universe, and the masters of that universe are all-knowing, even when the information is about one of their own. #Quote by Marc Grossberg

Masters quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#175. Who claims Truth, Truth abandons. History is hir'd, or coerc'd, only in Interests that must ever prove base. She is too innocent, to be left within the reach of anyone in Power,- who need but touch her, and all her Credit is in the instant vanish'd, as if it had never been. She needs rather to be tended lovingly and honorably by fabulists and counterfeiters, Ballad-Mongers and Cranks of ev'ry Radius, Masters of Disguise to provide her the Costume, Toilette, and Bearing, and Speech nimble enough to keep her beyond the Desires, or even the Curiosity, of Government. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Masters quotes by H.G. Wells
#176. It doesn't take ten years of study, you don't need to go to the University, to find out that this is a damned good world gone wrong. Gone wrong, because it is being monkeyed with by people too greedy and mean and wrong-hearted altogether to do the right thing by our common world. They've grabbed it and they won't let go. They might lose their importance; they might lose their pull. Everywhere it's the same. Beware of the men you make your masters. Beware of the men you trust.

We've only got to be clear-headed to sing the same song and play the same game all over the world, we common men. We don't want Power monkeyed with, we don't want Work and Goods monkeyed with, and, above all, we don't want Money monkeyed with. That's the elements of politics everywhere. When these things go wrong, we go wrong. That's how people begin to feel it and see it in America. That's how we feel it here -- when we look into our minds. That's what common people feel everywhere. That's
what our brother whites -- "poor whites" they call them -- in those towns in South Carolina are fighting for now. Fighting our battle. Why aren't we with them? We speak the same language; we share the same blood. Who has been keeping us apart from them for a hundred and fifty-odd years? Ruling classes. Politicians. Dear old flag and all that stuff!

Our school-books never tell us a word about the American common man; and his school-books never tell him a word about us. They flutter flags betw #Quote by H.G. Wells

Masters quotes by Michelangelo
#178. It is not sufficient merely to be a great master in painting and very wise, but I think that it is necessary for the painter to be very moral in his mode of life, or even, if such were possible, a saint, so that the Holy Spirit may inspire his intellect. #Quote by Michelangelo
Masters quotes by Jack LaLanne
#179. Have you seen some of the crap they're selling as exercise equipment now? How about that Suzanne Somers? She should have been thrown in jail for selling the piece-of-crap Thigh Master. It just develops a little muscle on the inner thigh. What good is that? #Quote by Jack LaLanne
Masters quotes by Jaka Tomc
#180. We are like chess players who are trying to predict the opponent's future moves, but in this case, we are dealing with life itself. True masters do not play the game on a single chessboard, but on multiple chessboards at the same time. And what's the difference between grandmasters and masters? Surprises. The moves that cannot be predicted by the opponent. Life can play a simultaneous game with seven billion people at the same time and it can take each and every one of us by surprise. And we still believe we are capable of winning, because we can predict three of four moves ahead. We are insignificant. #Quote by Jaka Tomc
Masters quotes by Marcus Garvey
#181. I trust that you will so live today as to realize that you are masters of your own destiny, masters of your fate; if there is anything you want in this world, it is for you to strike out with confidence and faith in self and reach for it. #Quote by Marcus Garvey
Masters quotes by Ben Hogan

Masters quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#187. The Chancellor looked down at the paper in front of him. He cleared his throat. 'Re'lar Ambrose, are you a donkey?'
Ambrose went stiff. 'No, sir,' he said.
'Are you possessed of,' he cleared his throat and read directly off the page. 'A pizzle bound to fizzle?' A few of the masters struggled to control smiles. Elodin grinned openly.
Ambrose flushed. 'No sir.'
'Then I'm afraid I don't see the problem,' the Chancellor said curtly, letting the paper settle to the table. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Masters quotes by Elie Wiesel
#188. Blessed be God's name? Why, but why would I bless Him? Every fiber in me rebelled. Because He caused thousands of children to burn in His mass graves? Because he kept six crematoria working day and night, including Sabbath and the Holy Days? Because in His great might, He had created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories of death? How could I say to Him: Blessed be Thou, Almighty, Master of the Universe, who chose us among all nations to be tortured day and night, to watch as our fathers, our mothers, our brothers, end up in the furnaces? Praised be Thy Holy Name, for having chosen us to be slaughtered on Thine altar? #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Masters quotes by Adam S. McHugh
#189. We could paraphrase "repent and believe" with "close your ears and listen." Obedience has both a stop and start to it. We turn our backs to the old voices and offer our attention to Jesus' voice.

We desire for God's voice to crescendo in our lives, with the competing voices fading away. This means that we must ruthlessly silence the calls of other masters. We confess our auditory rebellions to others, since somehow moving the jaw in confession seems to unplug our ears. #Quote by Adam S. McHugh
Masters quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#190. Too often on such occasions one feels, as I feel so strongly with regard to poor old Stilton, that the kindly thing to do would be to seize the prospective bridegroom's trousers in one's teeth and draw him back from danger, as faithful dogs do to their masters on the edge of precipices on dark nights. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Masters quotes by Angelina Grimke
#191. I believe it is now the duty of the slaves of the South to rebuke their masters for their robbery, oppression and crime ... Nostation or character can destroy individual responsibility, in the matter of reproving sin. #Quote by Angelina Grimke
Masters quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#192. In God's school, the teachers must be masters of the art of holiness. If we teach one thing by our lips and another by our lives, those who listen to us will say, "Physician, heal thyself." "Thou sayest, 'Repent.' Where is thine own repentance? Thou sayest, 'Serve God, and be obedient to His will.' Do you serve Him? Are you obedient to His will?" An unholy ministry would be the derision of the world, and a dishonour to God. "Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord." He will speak through a fool if he be but a holy man. I do not, of course, mean that God chooses fools to be His ministers; but let a man once become really holy, even though he has but the slenderest possible ability, he will be a more fit instrument in God's hand than the man of gigantic acquirements, who is not obedient to the divine will, nor clean and pure in the sight of the Lord God Almighty. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Masters quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#193. It was in this way that he learned where Gandalf had been to; for he overheard the words of the wizard to Elrond. It appeared that Gandalf had been to a great council of the white wizards, masters of lore and good magic; and that they had at last driven the Necromancer from his dark hold in the south of Mirkwood. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Masters quotes by Colleen Masters
#194. I can't believe I just rejected him. I'm stunned, but I also feel like giving myself a standing ovation. I just resisted the advances of Nate Thornhill, my fantasy of almost three years. I should win a willpower award. #Quote by Colleen Masters
Masters quotes by Kameron Hurley
#195. When I sat down with one of my senior professors in Durban, South Africa to talk about my Master's thesis, he asked me why I wanted to write about women resistance fighters.

"Because women made up twenty percent of the ANC's militant wing!" I gushed. "Twenty percent! When I found that out I couldn't believe it. And you know – women have never been part of fighting forces –"
The Huntress

The Huntress, art by S. Ross Browne

He interrupted me. "Women have always fought," he said.

"What?" I said.

"Women have always fought," he said. "Shaka Zulu had an all-female force of fighters. Women have been part of every resistance movement. Women dressed as men and went to war, went to sea, and participated actively in combat for as long as there have been people. #Quote by Kameron Hurley
Masters quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#196. The highest use of the great masters of literature is not literary; it is apart from their superb style and even from their emotional inspiration. The first use of good literature is that it prevents a man from being merely modern. To be merely modern is to condemn oneself to an ultimate narrowness; just as to spend one's last earthly money on the newest hat is to condemn oneself to the old-fashioned. The road of the ancient centuries is strewn with dead moderns. Literature, classic and enduring literature, does its best work in reminding us perpetually of the whole round of truth and balancing other and older ideas against the ideas to which we might for a moment be prone. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Masters quotes by Robert Barry
#197. I'm getting more and more into Chinese art and Japanese, some of those scroll paintings are amazing. You follow the change of the seasons. It's really something. These guys were great masters and of course the use of space. #Quote by Robert Barry
Masters quotes by Ernst Gombrich
#198. During the days of my youth, critics and art-lovers resorted freely to this term of abuse. Even some of the most renowned Old Masters were also pilloried as having manufactured insipid and sugary paintings that were offensive to good taste. #Quote by Ernst Gombrich
Masters quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
#199. How a person masters his fate is more important than what his fate is. #Quote by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Masters quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#200. The battle was first waged over the right of the Negro to be classed as a human being with a soul; later, as to whether he had sufficient intellect to master even the rudiments of learning; and today it is being fought out over his social recognition. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson
