Nicholas Ii quotes by Paul Ham
#1. There was a happy irony in the first cousin of the autocratic Kaiser Wilhelm II and Tsar Nicholas II (with whom George bore a striking resemblance) furthering British democracy. #Quote by Paul Ham
Nicholas Ii quotes by Robert K. Massie
#2. Peter, who broke his enemies on the rack and hanged them in Red Square, who had his son tortured to death, is Peter the Great. But Nicholas, whose hand was lighter than that of any tsar before him, is "Bloody Nicholas". In human terms, this is irony rich and dramatic, the more so because Nicholas knew what he was called. #Quote by Robert K. Massie
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas II Of Russia
#3. I am just a plain, common man. #Quote by Nicholas II Of Russia
Nicholas Ii quotes by Sarah Miller
#4. My sisters and I sit together on a pair of suitcases. If we've forgotten anything, it's already too late
our rooms have all been sealed and photographed. Anyway, Tatiana would say it's bad luck to return for something you've forgotten. #Quote by Sarah Miller
Nicholas Ii quotes by Danilo Kis
#5. The local Red Cross chapter volunteered to publish his book. It came out in a deluxe, gold-embossed, Japanese-paper edition to remind the reader of human artistry, which can be a refuge from evil and a source of new, platonic stirrings. One copy was reserved for His Imperial Majesty Nicholas II. (The Tsar fairly devoured mystical works, believing that hell could be avoided by a combination of education and deceit.)

"The Book of Kings and Fools," p. 136. #Quote by Danilo Kis
Nicholas Ii quotes by Orlando Figes
#6. With the Russian Empire teetering on the brink of collapse, the tsarist regime responded to the crises with its usual incompetence and obstinacy. The basic problem was that Nicholas himself remained totally oblivious to the extremity of the situation. While the country sank deeper into chaos he continued to fill his diary with terse and trivial notes on the weather, the company at tea and the number of birds he had shot that day. When Bulygin suggested that political concessions might be needed to calm the country, Nicholas was taken aback and told the Minister: 'One would think you are afraid a revolution will break out.' 'Your majesty,' came the reply, 'the revolution has already begun. #Quote by Orlando Figes
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas II
#7. I am not yet ready to be Tsar. I know nothing of the business of ruling. #Quote by Nicholas II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas II Of Russia
#8. I do not rule Russia. 10,000 clerks do. #Quote by Nicholas II Of Russia
Nicholas Ii quotes by Sarah Miller
#9. I'll pretend, I tell myself. Pretending is safer than believing. #Quote by Sarah Miller
Nicholas Ii quotes by Saul David
#10. Given the gruesome fate of the last Tsar, Nicholas II, and his family, and the fact that five of the previous 12 Romanov rulers were also murdered, it is easy to regard Russia's imperial dynasty as cursed. #Quote by Saul David
Nicholas Ii quotes by Sarah Miller
#11. Maria cries unashamedly on my shoulder while I whisper and pet her cheek, but Anastasia grips my other hand and stares fiercely back at our Alexander Palace with her wet blue eyes until it is no more than a lemon-colored speck against the sunrise. #Quote by Sarah Miller
Nicholas Ii quotes by Anita Paddock
#12. Read the book, Shadow over the Winter Palace," Sam Hugh explained. "It's about the Russian Czar Nicholas II and his crazy wife." Of course, Santos #Quote by Anita Paddock
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Murray Butler
#13. The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method-more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records-of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason. #Quote by Nicholas Murray Butler
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Stoller
#14. A big part of being in a relationship or marriage or whatever is you have to eventually compromise. Your life doesn't end up exactly the way you think it's going to, and if it's the right relationship, you might have to compromise what you're doing professionally. #Quote by Nicholas Stoller
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#15. So you become numb to insults, particularly if you teach yourself to imagine that the person uttering them is a variant of a noisy ape with little personal control. Just keep your composure, smile, focus on analyzing the speaker not the message, and you'll win the argument. An ad hominem attack against an intellectual, not against an idea, is highly flattering. It indicates that the person does not have anything intelligent to say about your message. The psychologist #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#16. When I was a young boy, during the aftermath of World War II, Germany was broken and in ruins. Many people were hungry, sick, and dying. I remember well the humanitarian shipments of food and clothing that came from the Church in Salt Lake City. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#17. One of the most irritating conversations I've had is with people who lecture me on how I should behave. Most of us know pretty much how we should behave. It is the execution that is the problem, not the absence of knowledge. I am tired of the moralizing slow-thinkers who pound me with platitudes like I should floss daily, eat my regular apple, and visit the gym outside of the New Year's resolution. In the markets the recommendation would be to ignore the noise component in the performance. We need tricks to get us there but before that we need to accept the fact that we are mere animals in need of lower forms of tricks, not lectures. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas G. Carr
#18. I think what the book did in addition to its practical uses, is it gave us a more attentive way of thinking. #Quote by Nicholas G. Carr
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#19. Allie would love what you've done," he remarked. "She was always a softie when it came to things like this."
I folded my hands in my lap. "I wish she could be there this weekend."
Noah glanced at the stack of letters. I knew he was imagining Allie, and for a brief moment, he looked strangely younger.
"So do I," he said. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#20. She set her shoulders back, meeting his gaze with a challenge. "You call that a kiss?" One corner of his mouth quirks up. "We haven't the time for a proper one, pirate. Now tell me, where precisely are we? #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Nicholas Ii quotes by Dennis Nappi II
#21. Small changes among the masses, can have a massive impact across the world. #Quote by Dennis Nappi II
Nicholas Ii quotes by William Joyce
#22. In death as in life, I defy the Jews who caused this last war [WW II], and I defy the powers of darkness which they represent. I am proud to die for my ideals, and I am sorry for the sons of Britain who have died without knowing why. #Quote by William Joyce
Nicholas Ii quotes by Peter Pomerantsev
#23. When Surkov finds out about the Night Wolves he is delighted. The country needs new patriotic stars, the great Kremlin reality show is open for auditions, and the Night Wolves are just the type that's needed, helping the Kremlin rewrite the narrative of protesters from political injustice and corruption to one of Holy Russia versus Foreign Devils, deflecting the conversation from the economic slide and how the rate of bribes that bureaucrats demand has shot up from 15 percent to 50 percent of any deal. They will receive Kremlin support for their annual bike show and rock concert in Crimea, the one-time jewel in the Tsarist Empire that ended up as part of Ukraine during Soviet times, and where the Night Wolves use their massive shows to call for retaking the peninsula from Ukraine and restoring the lands of Greater Russia; posing with the President in photo ops in which he wears Ray-Bans and leathers and rides a three-wheel Harley (he can't quite handle a two-wheeler); playing mega-concerts to 250,000 cheering fans celebrating the victory at Stalingrad in World War II and the eternal Holy War Russia is destined to fight against the West, with Cirque du Soleil–like trapeze acts, Spielberg-scale battle reenactments, religious icons, and holy ecstasies - in the middle of which come speeches from Stalin, read aloud to the 250,000 and announcing the holiness of the Soviet warrior - after which come more dancing girls and then the Night Wolves' anthem, "Slavic Skies":

Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#24. Try the following experiment. Go to the airport and ask travelers en route to some remote destination how much they would pay for an insurance policy paying, say, a million tugrits (the currency of Mongolia) if they died during the trip (for any reason).Then ask another collection of travelers how much they would pay for insurance that pays the same in the event of death from a terrorist act (and only a terrorist act). Guess which one would command a higher price? Odds are that people would rather pay for the second policy (although the former includes death from terrorism). The psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky figured this out several decades ago. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by David Horsey
#25. Our vision of war is probably too influenced by the biggest one of all, World War II, where the forces of evil were so unambiguous and so relentless that there was no choice but to commit to total war and to demand unconditional surrender. Seldom, though, is it quite that clear cut. #Quote by David Horsey
Nicholas Ii quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#26. Ten years ago I said, you know, my goal is to be able to get food on the table. What I'm trying to say by that is trying to create a vibrant, capable and effective middle class. The quicker and stronger that we can be able to do this, the easier it is for political reform to move forward. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#27. Staring at the stars was like staring backward in time, since some stars are so far away that their light takes millions of years just to reach us. That we see stars not as they look now, but as they were when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The whole concept just struck me as ... amazing somehow. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#28. One of my frustrations is that we in society generally have this bifurcation in how we see the world. That's probably a little less true with business audiences, but in general, there tends to be this view that for-profit companies are greedy, and nonprofits are noble. It's absolutely more complicated than that. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#29. One might think that economic inequality leads to self-correction in democracies, as the public becomes alarmed or outraged by income gaps and institutes taxes or other policies to take from the rich or give to the poor. But this doesn't happen often. Researchers have found that instead, in countries around the world, the accumulation of wealth also often leads to accumulation of political power that is then harnessed to multiply that wealth. Indeed, that's what we're seeing in America. Our political system responds to large donors, so politicians create benefits for the rich, who then reward the politicians who created them. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Nicholas Ii quotes by Pope John Paul II
#30. The family, as the fundamental and essential educating community, is the privileged means for transmitting the religious and cultural values which help the person to acquire his or her own identity. Founded on love and open to the gift of life, the family contains in itself the very future of society; its most special task is to contribute effectively to a future of peace. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Eftimiades
#31. The MSS uses two main themes in recruiting foreign nationals of Chinese ancestry. First, it appeals to their perceived obligation to help the land of their heritage, thereby exploiting sentimental feelings of ethnic pride. Second, it implies that family members still in the PRC will receive unfavorable treatment unless the subjects cooperate. The latter approach is quite stressful for the subjects and a strong motivational factor in favor of compliance. #Quote by Nicholas Eftimiades
Nicholas Ii quotes by Torkom Saraydarian
#32. If I must needs boast, I will boast of my sufferings." II Corinthians 11:30

People boast about their wealth, their physical strength, their financial success, their educational achievements... but there are only a few people who can boast about their pains and sufferings. Those who are able to lay down their lives for a great mission are rare, but they are those who are able to transcend themselves and stand as great leaders and heroes in front of humanity. -Torkom Saraydarian #Quote by Torkom Saraydarian
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#33. The four most influential moderns: Darwin, Marx, Freud, and (the productive) Einstein were scholars but not academics. It has always been hard to do genuine - and no perishable - work within institutions #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Pope John Paul II
#34. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Stoller
#35. I think the script's actually pretty solid. It really is a labor of love for us to get this thing off the ground. It was scary but then there was the change in leadership and I think that the new guy in charge is basically like, "We should just do this." #Quote by Nicholas Stoller
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#36. With few exceptions, those who dress outrageously are robust or even antifragile in reputation; those clean-shaven types who dress in suits and ties are fragile to information about them. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Rumi
#37. Eblis said, "No man who thinks ill, will hear the truth despite a hundred signs.
When one who fantasises is presented with reason his fantasies increase.
When one talks to such a person, their words become the very cause of that person's fantasy. The crusader's sword is a tool for a thief.
So the response to him is silence and peace; to talk with an idiot is insanity.
- Mathnawi-ye ma'nawi II 2714–17 #Quote by Rumi
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#38. On the drive we talked easily, but we did make a small detour. After pulling into a rest stop, we made out like teenagers. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#39. If you are in banking and lending, surprise outcomes are likely to be negative for you. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#40. Corporations are in love with the idea of the strategic plan. They need to pay to figure out where they are going. Yet there is no evidence that strategic planning works - we even seem to have evidence against it. A management scholar, William Starbuck, has published a few papers debunking the effectiveness of planning - it makes the corporation option-blind, as it gets locked into a non-opportunistic course of action. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#41. It is each woman's responsibility to take the time when she is in her time of the moon to purify. It is the responsibility of the men to give the women the opportunity to do so. Nicholas Noble Wolf, #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Nicholas Ii quotes by David Dudley Field II
#42. Government is the greatest combination for forces known to human society. It can command more men and raise more money than any and all other agencies combined. #Quote by David Dudley Field II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Pope John Paul II
#43. What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#44. My experience is that money and transactions purify relations; ideas and abstract matters like "recognition" and "credit" warp them, creating an atmosphere of perpetual rivalry. I grew to find people greedy for credentials nauseating, repulsive, and untrustworthy. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#45. You educate a boy, and he'll have fewer children, but it's a small effect. You educate a girl, and, on average, she will have a significantly smaller family. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Nicholas Ii quotes by Sean Patrick Flanery
#46. Now 'Boondock II,' people are gonna see it because they liked the first one. There won't be very many people who go see it who aren't familiar with the first one. #Quote by Sean Patrick Flanery
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#47. It's not that I'm vain; I simply thought I had plenty of time, so I told Vivian I'd be ready to go in a few minutes. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#48. The memories of the day played in his mind, but this time, his thoughts were of his daughter and the way she'd clung to Katie, her little face buried in Katie's neck.
The last time he'd seen that, he reflected, was when Carly had been alive. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Hoult
#49. I manage to live pretty normally. #Quote by Nicholas Hoult
Nicholas Ii quotes by Pope John Paul II
#50. Every Mass is a memorial of that one sacrifice and that passover which restored life to the world. Every Mass puts us into intimate communion with her, the mother, whose sacrifice 'becomes present' just as the sacrifice of her Son 'becomes present' at the words of consecration ... At the root of the Eucharist is the virginal and maternal life of Mary #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#51. In a lifetime of mistakes, you two are the greatest things that have ever happened to me. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by ~Theresa Griffin Kennedy~
#52. The butter was real of course. Daddy had a fetish about using only real butter. As he handed it to me, I noticed the hue was brash and yellow, almost like the artificial color used in the making of cheap Margarine. The boysenberry preserves were recently purchased. The glass had a bright red foil label with intricate embossed wording and as I turned the lid, I heard the sucking sound of the seal breaking. Daddy looked over, concerned, until I carefully laid the jar of jam on the counter, pushing it toward him. "I can do everything Tweetie Bird," he said to me. I smiled, embarrassed at my old nickname from when I was a child and nodded my head. #Quote by ~Theresa Griffin Kennedy~
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#53. Theresa, remember - you've got nothing to lose. The worst that could possibly happen is that you fly home in a couple of days. That's all. You're not going on a quest to search for a tribe of cannibals. You're just going to find out if your curiosity was warranted. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Ii quotes by Nicholas Rhea
#54. Think of me as you pass by, As you are now, so once was I. As I am now, some day you'll be, So now prepare to follow me. Someone, #Quote by Nicholas Rhea
Nicholas Ii quotes by Pope John Paul II
#55. God made us for joy. God is joy, & the joy of living reflects the original joy that God felt in creating us. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
