Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#1. Strange and marvelous things will happen with constant regularity as you alter your life and begin living in harmony with the laws of the universe. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#2. Inside the magic globe that Florence Nightingale carries, there are wishes and hopes and love. And all of these things are very tiny and also very bright. And there are thousands of wishes and hopes and love things, and they move around in the magic globe, and that's what Florence uses to see by. That is how she sees soldiers who have fallen on the battlefield of life. #Quote by Kate DiCamillo
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#3. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Thomas Hardy
#4. WEATHERS
This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I;
When showers betumble the chestnut spikes,
And nestlings fly;
And the little brown nightingale bills his best,
And they sit outside at 'The Traveller's Rest,'
And maids come forth sprig-muslin drest,
And citizens dream of the south and west,
And so do I.
This is the weather the shepherd shuns,
And so do I;
When beeches drip in browns and duns,
And thresh and ply;
And hill-hid tides throb, throe on throe,
And meadow rivulets overflow,
And drops on gate bars hang in a row,
And rooks in families homeward go,
And so do I. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Nightingale quotes by Rumi
#5. Don't ask me about prayer rocks
Anyplace I put my head is a prayer rock.
Don't talk of direction
All six directions face Him.
Gardens, flames, nightingale,
whirling dance, and brotherhood
Throw all these away
and throw yourself into His love. #Quote by Rumi
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#6. In a sick-room or a bed-room there should never be shutters shut. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#7. When she remained silent, the slave went back to work. He started humming the tune of a song only to stop, rearrange the notes, then sing them again in a different order. He did this over and over. Like he was testing the song and it kept failing him. Asha lay back, letting his voice distract her from the teeth-grinding pain of his needle sewing her up. A story rose to mind, unbidden. Rayan strode through his mother's orange grove and stopped sharp. Someone was singing. Someone with the voice of a nightingale. #Quote by Kristen Ciccarelli
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#8. People say the effect is only on the mind. It is no such thing. The effect is on the body, too. Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by color, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of color in the objects presented to patients, are actual means of recovery. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by William H. Gass
#9. Normally, we are supposed to say farewell to the page even as we look, to see past the cut of the type, hear beyond the shape of the sound, feel more than the heft of the book, to hear the bird sing whose name has been invoked, and think of love being made through the length of the night if the bird's name is nightingale; but when the book itself has the beauty of the bird, and the words do their own singing; when the token is treated as if it, not some divine intention, was holy and had power; when the bird itself is figured in the margins as though that whiteness were a moon-bleached bough and the nearby type the leaves it trembles; and when indigo turbans or vermilion feathers are, with jasmines, pictured so perfectly that touch falls in love with the finger, eyes light, and nostrils flare; when illustrations refuse to illustrate but instead suggest the inside of the reader's head, where a consciousness is being constructed; then the nature of the simple sign is being vigorously denied, and the scene or line or brief rendition is being treated like a thing itself, returning the attention to its qualities and composition. -- From "The Book As a Container of Consciousness #Quote by William H. Gass
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#10. You must go to Mahometanism, to Buddhism, to the East, to the Sufis Fakirs, to Pantheism, for the right growth of mysticism. #Quote by Florence Nightingale

#12. The great reformers of the world turn into the great misanthropists, if circumstances or organization do not permit them to act. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#13. Go, little book, and wish to all
Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall,
A bin of wine, a spice of wit,
A house with lawns enclosing it,
A living river by the door,
A nightingale in the sycamore! #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Nightingale quotes by Kristen Ashley
#14. Liar. You've loved me since I held your hand at your mother's memorial service when you were five years old. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#15. The 'kingdom of heaven is within,' indeed, but we must also create one without, because we are intended to act upon our circumstances. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#16. Women have no sympathy and my experience of women is almost as large as Europe. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#17. To become successful and outstanding at something, we don't have to come up with something new; we need only find ways of doing it better. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Stephen Leather
#18. Jack Nightingale: "So I'm a hero?"
Supt. Chalmers: "No, Nightingale, you're an arsehole. But I can't arrest you for that. #Quote by Stephen Leather
Nightingale quotes by Odysseus Elytis
#19. The splendor of youth is, to a point, the splendor of error. Jealous the old, who have everything previewed! The nightingale will never come sing over your wisdom. It won't, darlin', it won't. #Quote by Odysseus Elytis
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#20. What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralization and disorder on the part of the inferior ... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#21. Insult is a monstrous scorpion, and compliment is a likeable nightingale; one stings mercilessly, and the other sings sweetly. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Nightingale quotes by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
#22. As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing (2 Corinthians 6:10).

Sorrow was beautiful, but her beauty was the beauty of the moonlight shining through the leafy branches of the trees in the wood, and making little pools of silver here and there on the soft green moss below. When Sorrow sang, her notes were like the low sweet call of the nightingale, and in her eyes was the unexpectant gaze of one who has ceased to look for coming gladness. She could weep in tender sympathy with those who weep, but to rejoice with those who rejoice was unknown to her.

Joy was beautiful, too, but his was the radiant beauty of the summer morning. His eyes still held the glad laughter of childhood, and his hair had the glint of the sunshine's kiss. When Joy sang his voice soared upward as the lark's, and his step was the step of a conqueror who has never known defeat. He could rejoice with all who rejoice, but to weep with those who weep was unknown to him.

"But we can never be united," said Sorrow wistfully. "No, never." And Joy's eyes shadowed as he spoke. "My path lies through the sunlit meadows, the sweetest roses bloom for my gathering, and the blackbirds and thrushes await my coming to pour forth their most joyous lays."

"My path," said Sorrow, turning slowly away, "leads through the darkening woods, with moon-flowers only shall my hands be filled. Yet the sweetest of all earth-songs--the love song of the night--shall be mine; farewell, Joy, farewell."
#Quote by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#23. Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God's law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#24. A success is the school teacher who is teaching because that's what she wants to do. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#25. We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#26. Perseverance is another word for faith! #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Kristen Ashley
#27. I figured the Nightingale Investigations job application form had the question Are you hot? Yes. No. If you answered no, please exit the building. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#28. It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Jodi Picoult
#29. You told me this lawsuit isn't about race. But that's what started it. And it doesn't matter if you can convince the jury I'm the reincarnation of Florence Nightingale - you can't take away the fact that I am Black. The truth is, if I looked like you, this would not be happening to me. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#30. For the sick it is important to have the best. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Plutarch
#31. A Locanian having plucked all the feathers off from a nightingale and seeing what a little body it had, "surely," quoth he, "thou art all voice and nothing else. #Quote by Plutarch
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#32. Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#33. To give oneself is the only way of becoming oneself. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Jason Nightingale
#34. I believe that if we give up on our dreams that we give up on ourselves.
Jason Nightingale (Still Undiscovered 2014) #Quote by Jason Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#35. Nightingale
Did I wound you, mutilate. Take away your voice. Did I cut something from you. Leave you locked in silence?
This is what you do: you sing. Every part of you. Your locks of hair sing, your eyes, your hands, your smile. If I listen closely I can even hear your blood.
Was I the one that took that away?
Go down to the water where we used to swim. Stand under the sky at dawn when the sky is streaked with blood. Open your mouth and shout our secret to the waves. The ocean will be your voice. You won't have to carry anything alone. Little Sister, my Spring, April. Little nightingale. Sant at the edge of the water. Your voice will come back to you. Maybe. If I am silent. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Nightingale quotes by Alfred Tennyson
#36. And while he waited in the castle court,
The voice of Enid, Yniol's daughter, rang
Clear through the open casement of the hall,
Singing; and as the sweet voice of a bird,
Heard by the lander in a lonely isle,
Moves him to think what kind of bird it is
That sings so delicately clear, and make
Conjecture of the plumage and the form;
So the sweet voice of Enid moved Geraint;
And made him like a man abroad at morn
When first the liquid note beloved of men
Comes flying over many a windy wave
To Britain, and in April suddenly
Breaks from a coppice gemmed with green and red,
And he suspends his converse with a friend,
Or it may be the labour of his hands,
To think or say, 'There is the nightingale;'
So fared it with Geraint, who thought and said,
'Here, by God's grace, is the one voice for me. #Quote by Alfred Tennyson
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#37. The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career! #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#38. NIGHTINGALE AND I did what all good coppers do when faced with a spare moment in the middle of the day - we went looking for a pub. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Nightingale quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#39. I lied as a nightingale sings, ecstatically, self-obliviously; reveling in the new life-harmony which I was creating. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#40. Failures ... believe that their lives are shaped by circumstances ... by things that happen to them ... by exterior forces. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Robert Aris Willmott
#41. Many books belong to sunshine, and should be read out of doors. Clover, violets, and hedge roses breathe from their leaves; they are most lovable in cool lanes, along field paths, or upon stiles overhung by hawthorn, while the blackbird pipes, and the nightingale bathes its brown feathers in the twilight copse. #Quote by Robert Aris Willmott
Nightingale quotes by Brian Selznick
#42. Remember, Little Nightingale, you can always stop doing dangerous things. And you can prove yourself trustworthy, right? Start by forgiving your uncle for his anger. That would be a nice gift. #Quote by Brian Selznick
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#43. Everything that's really worthwhile in life comes to us. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Sharlene Hawkes
#44. -The Wallflower
A wall flower at a dance is not always a wall flower everywhere. We all have our areas of expertise and our areas of inability or inexperience. The problem is that many people become wallflowers in too many areas of their lives because they have given things a try and felt foolish in the end. And because no one likes to appear foolish many decide that it is better to simply blend in. "If I don't do anything different, I won't ever look foolish," the reason, "No one will laugh at me or tease me."
Why are we so concerned about what our peers think of what we are doing, wearing, or saying??? One of my favorite quotes is by Earl Nightingale. He said, "You wouldn't worry so much about what other people thought of you if you only realized how little they do." Exactly. Most people are too worried about themselves to really care about what you are doing! And for those who can put on blinders and remain oblivious to the possible embarrassment of total failure, it is usually cheers – and not jeers – that await them. #Quote by Sharlene Hawkes
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#45. Successful people are not without problems. They're simply people who've learned to solve their problems. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#46. But you, you foolish girl, you have gone home to a leaky castle across the sea to lie awake in linen smelling of lavender, and hear the nightingale, and long for me. #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#47. Life is a hard fight, a struggle, a wrestling with the principle of evil, hand to hand, foot to foot. Every inch of the way is disputed. The night is given us to take breath, to pray, to drink deep at the fountain of power. The day, to use the strength which has been given us, to go forth to work with it till the evening. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#48. Our rewards in life will always be in direct ratio to our service. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#49. Control your thoughts. Decide about that which you will think and concentrate upon. You are in charge of your life to the degree you take charge of your thoughts. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#50. It is in the expectations of happiness that much of happiness itself is found. And it takes courage to expect happiness. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#51. Everything perfect in its kind has to transcend its own kind, it must become something different and incomparable. In some notes the nightingale is still a bird; then it rises above its class and seems to suggest to every winged creature what singing is truly like. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#52. [On Thomas Babington Macaulay:] He was a most disagreeable companion to my fancy ... His conversation was a procession of one. #Quote by Florence Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#56. People talk about imitating Christ, and imitate Him in the little trifling formal things, such as washing the feet, saying His prayer, and so on; but if anyone attempts the real imitation of Him, there are no bounds to the outcry with which the presumption of that person is condemned. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Cathleen Schine
#57. Elinor Lipman tweets like a nightingale with an eagle eye. #Quote by Cathleen Schine
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#58. When the days are too short, chances are you are living at your best. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#59. The account he gives of nurses beats everything that even I know of. This young prophet says that they are all drunkards, without exception, Sisters and all, and that there are but two whom the surgeon can trust to give the patients their medicines. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#60. Everything you and I will ever have will come to us as the result of the way we use our minds, the one thing we possess that makes us different from all other creatures. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Denis O'Hare
#61. I was raised on the brothers Grimm, but my favorite fairy tales in the world are Oscar Wilde's - 'The Nightingale and the Rose,' 'The Selfish Giant.' The latter is probably my all-time favorite. #Quote by Denis O'Hare
Nightingale quotes by William Kent Krueger
#62. But I believe if you tell a story, it's like sending a nightingale into the air with the hope that its song will never be forgotten. #Quote by William Kent Krueger
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Rumi

Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#69. I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#70. Attitude is the reflection of a person, and our world mirrors our attitude. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#71. It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as the very first requirement in a hospital that it should do the sick no harm. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#72. But tell me, who is he that can offend the spirit? Shall the nightingale offend the stillness of the night, or the firefly the stars? #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#73. I can stand out the war with any man. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Victor Hugo
#74. I propose a toast to mirth; be merry! Let us complete our course of law by folly and eating! Indigestion and the digest. let Justinian be the male, and Feasting, the female! Joy the depths! Live, O creation! The world is a great diamond. I am happy. The birds are astonishing. What a festival everywhere! The nightingale is a gratuitous Elleviou.
Summer, I salute thee! #Quote by Victor Hugo
Nightingale quotes by John Keats
#75. It is a flaw In happiness to see beyond our bourn, - It forces us in summer skies to mourn, It spoils the singing of the nightingale. #Quote by John Keats
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Suzy Kassem
#79. A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey. A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#80. Do what experts since the dawn of recorded history have told you you must do: pay the price by becoming the person you want to become. It's not nearly as difficult as living unsuccessfully. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#81. I cannot remember the time when I have not longed for death ... for years and years I used to watch for death as no sick man ever watched for the morning. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#82. Sweet was the sound, when oft, at evening's close,
Up yonder hill the village murmur rose;
There as I passed, with careless steps and slow,
The mingling notes came soften'd from below;
The swain responsive as the milkmaid sung,
The sober herd that low'd to meet their young;
The noisy geese that gabbled o'er the pool,
The playful children just let loose from school;
The watch-dog's voice that bay'd the whispering wind,
And the loud laugh that spoke the vacant mind;
These all in sweet confusion sought the shade,
And fill'd each pause the nightingale had made. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#83. Getting along well with other people is still the world's most needed skill. With it ... there is no limit to what person can do. We need people, we need the cooperation of others. There is very little we can do alone #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#84. It is our attitude toward life that determines life's attitude toward us. We get back what we put out. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Erica Cameron
#85. When I look at Mari now, it's like I see her in layers - the burning blonde with the ribbon over her mouth, the princess tearing apart a screwed-up tea party, the goddess wrapped in burning chains, and the girl who is somehow all those things yet isn't aware of it. Who doesn't even see the cliff she's running toward at full speed. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Colleen McCullough
#86. There's a story ... a legend, about a bird that sings just once in its life. From the moment it leaves its nest, it searches for a thorn tree ... and never rests until it's found one. And then it sings ... more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth. And singing, it impales itself on the longest, sharpest thorn. But, as it dies, it rises above its own agony, to outsing the lark and the nightingale. The thorn bird pays its life for just one song, but the whole world stills to listen, and God in his heaven smiles. #Quote by Colleen McCullough
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#87. Time can't be managed. I merely manage activities. Each night, I write down on a sheet of paper a list of the things I have to accomplish the next day. And when I wake up ... I do them. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#88. If your attitude toward the world is good, you will obtain good results. If your attitude is excellent, excellent will your results. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#89. George Bernard Shaw said: "People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." Well, #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#90. Mistakes are a natural part of growing up. They're to be expected and made light of. But children bloom like spring flowers under praise. They want so much to be noticed and appreciated, to excel and have that excellence noticed. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#91. Our first journey is to find that special place for us. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by A.G. Howard
#92. Morpheus is not his true name. He is glory and deprecation - sunlight and shadows - the scuttle of a scorpion and the melody of a nightingale. The breath of the sea and the cannonade of a storm. Can you relay birdsong, or the sound of wind, or the scurry of a creature across the sand? For the proper names of netherlings are made up of the life forces defining them. Can you speak these things with your tongue? #Quote by A.G. Howard
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#93. We tend to minimize the things we can do, the goals we can accomplish, and for some equally strange reason we think other people can accomplish things that we cannot. I want you to understand that that is not true. You have deep reservoirs of talent and ability within you that you can bring to the surface and achieve all that you desire #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#94. We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#95. Courage changes things for the better ... [With courage you can] stay with something long enough to succeed at it, realizing that it usually takes two, three or four times as long to succeed as you thought or hoped. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by J. E. Nightingale
#96. Being married to her must be very much like living with a tiger, a not very tame tiger at that. #Quote by J. E. Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#97. I have lived and slept in the same bed with English countesses and Prussian farm women ... no woman has excited passions among women more than I have. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#98. The next Christ will perhaps be a female Christ. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by William Shakespeare
#99. PORTIA
So doth the greater glory dim the less:
A substitute shines brightly as a king
Unto the king be by, and then his state
Empties itself, as doth an inland brook
Into the main of waters. Music! hark!

NERISSA
It is your music, madam, of the house.

PORTIA
Nothing is good, I see, without respect:
Methinks it sounds much sweeter than by day.

NERISSA
Silence bestows that virtue on it, madam.

PORTIA
The crow doth sing as sweetly as the lark,
When neither is attended, and I think
The nightingale, if she should sing by day,
When every goose is cackling, would be thought
No better a musician than the wren.
How many things by season season'd are
To their right praise and true perfection!
Peace, ho! the moon sleeps with Endymion
And would not be awaked.

- Acte V, Scene 1 #Quote by William Shakespeare
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#100. Success is not the result of making money; making money is the result of success - and success is in direct proportion to our service. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#101. A want of the habit of observing and an inveterate habit of taking averages are each of them often equally misleading. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#102. A woman cannot live in the light of intellect. Society forbids it. Those conventional frivolities, which are called her 'duties', forbid it. Her 'domestic duties', high-sounding words, which, for the most part, are but bad habits (which she has not the courage to enfranchise herself from, the strength to break through), forbid it. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#103. I am not yet worthy; and I will live to deserve to be called a Trained Nurse. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Julian Fellowes
#104. I like people who don't accept boundaries. Like Florence Nightingale. And Napoleon or Louis XIV, though I'm not sure how much I'd have liked to meet them. I admire people who aren't circumscribed by circumstance. #Quote by Julian Fellowes
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#105. Throughout all history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers,
and prophets have disagreed with one another on many different things.
It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement. We become what we think about. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#106. If you don't have a good model for success, just look at what everybody else is doing and do the opposite. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#107. Any person who contributes to prosperity must prosper in turn. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#108. Successful people form the habit of doing what failures don't like to do. They like the results they get by doing what they don't necessarily enjoy. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Alan Lightman
#109. The catchers delight in the moment so frozen but soon discover that the nightingale expires, its clear flutelike song diminishes to silence, the trapped moment grows withered and without life. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#110. The night is given to us to take breath, to pray, to drink deep at the fountain of power. #Quote by Florence Nightingale

#122. Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.

Nightingale quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#127. In the depth of my soul there are songs unwilling to take the garb of words, songs living as seed in my heart. They will not flow with ink onto paper. Like a translucent veil, they are wrapped about emotions that can never flow sweetly on my tongue.
Yet how can I even whisper them when I fear what the particles of air may do to them? To whom shall I sing them when they have become accustomed to live in the house of my soul and fear the harshness of other ears?
Were you to look into my eyes, you would see the image of their image. Were you to touch my fingertips, you would feel their quick movements. The works of my hands reveal them as the lake reflects the twinkling of the stars.
My tears disclose them as the mystery of the rose petal is disclosed at the moment the heat dissolves the drops of dew when that rose withers.
... Who can combine the roaring of the sea and the warbling of the nightingale? Who can link the crashing thunder with the baby's sigh? #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#128. When you see the natural and almost universal craving in English sick for their 'tea,' you cannot but feel that nature knows what she is about ... A little tea or coffee restores them ... There is nothing yet discovered which is a substitute to the English patient for his cup of tea. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#129. The strangest secret in the world is that you become what you think about. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#130. She had on a spangled top that sparkled like fish scales. Her hair was very yellow. She looked like a mermaid in a bad mood.
(p. 82 RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE) #Quote by Kate DiCamillo
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#131. Don't concern yourself too much with how you are going to achieve your goal - leave that completely to a power greater than yourself. All you have to do is know where you're going. The answers will come to you of their own accord, and at the right time. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Yasser Kashef
#132. Be unique in your choices ... As the nightingale among voices #Quote by Yasser Kashef
Nightingale quotes by Cisneros Sandra
#133. Alone, all alone in the world, sad and small like a nightingale serenading the infinite. How could a love so tender and sweet become the cross of my pain? No, no, I can't conceive I won't receive your precious lips again. My eyes are tired of weeping, my heart of beating. If perhaps some crystal moment before dawn or twilight you remember me, bring only a bouquet of tears to lay upon my thirsty grave. #Quote by Cisneros Sandra
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#134. Do not engage in any paper wars. You will convince nobody and arrive at no satisfaction yourself. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#142. Goals reflect your choice of destination. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by James Belushi
#143. When Whitney Houston died, I felt great sadness. My sadness, of course, was about our collective loss - when you listened to this nightingale sing, your body would drop into a chair, your head would tilt up, a small smile would creep across your face, and inside you knew that there was a higher power somewhere: gifted, beautiful, spiritual. #Quote by James Belushi
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#144. Everything you do in a patient's room, after he is 'put up' for the night, increases tenfold the risk of his having a bad night. But, if you rouse him up after he has fallen asleep, you do not risk - you secure him a bad night. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Pier Paolo Pasolini
#145. I am black with love/ neither boy nor nightingale/ perfectly whole as a flower/ I desire without impulse #Quote by Pier Paolo Pasolini
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#146. The best way to help a man increase his output is to help build the man. Help him increase his stature as a man, and he will just naturally do better-on the job and off. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#147. Instead of competing, all we have to do is create. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#148. Why do people sit up so late, or, more rarely, get up so early? Not because the day is not long enough, but because they have no time in the day to themselves. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#149. We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within. #Quote by Earl Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by John Milton
#152. Now came still evening on; and twilight gray Had in her sober livery all things clad: Silence accompanied; for beast and bird, They to they grassy couch, these to their nests, Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale. #Quote by John Milton
Nightingale quotes by Nightingale Daniel
#153. Do not criticize what you do not understand. #Quote by Nightingale Daniel
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#154. In The Science of Getting Rich, W. D. Wattles wrote that we must always give more in service to our customers and to those around us than we are getting in return. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#155. The picture you have of yourself, your self-esteem, will have a profound effect on the way you see the world and the way your world sees you. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#156. Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#157. We are all creatures of habit. We can do most things without even thinking about them; our bodies take charge and do them for us. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Erica Cameron
#158. The light show when she picked up the statue was insane. Blue cracks spread from her hand, up her arm, and across her entire body in less than a second. When she dropped it, I thought maybe she'd seen what was happening and would leave the statue alone. Or throw it at me - it kinda seemed like she wanted to throw it at me for a second. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#159. Why have women passion, intellect, moral activity these, three and a place in society where no one of the three can be exercised? #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale

Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#163. Every nurse ought to be careful to wash her hands very frequently during the day. If her face, too, so much the better. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#164. Most people tiptoe their way through life, hoping they make it safely to death. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#165. The most important practical lesson that can be given to nurses is to teach them what to observe - how to observe - what symptoms indicate improvement - what the reverse - which are of importance - which are of none - which are the evidence of neglect - and of what kind of neglect. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Immanuel Kant
#166. Even a man's exact imitation of the song of the nightingale displeases us when we discover that it is a mimicry, and not the nightingale. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#167. I can expect no sympathy or help from my family. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Conrad Aiken
#168. Is it a comb, a fan, a torn dress, a curtain, a bed, an empty rice-bin? It hardly seems to matter. The Chinese poet makes a heart-breaking poetry out of these quite as naturally as Keats did out of the song of a nightingale heard in a spring garden. It is rarely dithyrambic, rarely high-pitched: part of its charm is its tranquility, its self-control. And the humblest reads it with as much emotion as the most learned. #Quote by Conrad Aiken
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#169. So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#170. That's the secret: be interesting. If you can't be interesting, shut up. There's nothing wrong with silence. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Erica Cameron
#171. I tell myself I have time. But the itch forming along the back of my neck and across my shoulders says otherwise.
I hate this. It's like I'm racing a clock ticking down to doomsday without knowing how much time I have left. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Viktor Elsin
#172. Night Swimming by Viktor Elsin
Black velvet night, pinned wide and high
By pinprick stars. Faces under moonlight.
Faint echoes float atop the river.
Our reckless splashes toss them here and there.
How very young we were, one floating year ago.
Wet tresses draped our ears.
And in the air, the hum of crickets chanting
Apologies we could not, did not, hear.
Gone, gone, the forest's past perfection:
Patchwork shade, pine needle carpet,
Ocher-resin drops of sun. The air
Hums...Unseen, the nightingale, too late,
Thrums its stubborn song- caught somewhere
Between the deep black water and sky. #Quote by Viktor Elsin
Nightingale quotes by Denis Healey
#173. I often compare Margaret Thatcher with Florence Nightingale. She stalks through the wards of our hospitals as a lady with a lamp. Unfortunately, it's a blowlamp. #Quote by Denis Healey
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#174. I attribute my success to this: - I never gave or took an excuse. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#175. Never give nor take an excuse. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#176. Stephen had been put to sleep in his usual room, far from children and noise, away in that corner of the house which looked down to the orchard and the bowling-green, and in spite of his long absence it was so familiar to him that when he woke at about three he made his way to the window almost as quickly as if dawn had already broken, opened it and walked out onto the balcony. The moon had set: there was barely a star to be seen. The still air was delightfully fresh with falling dew, and a late nightingale, in an indifferent voice, was uttering a routine jug-jug far down in Jack's plantations; closer at hand and more agreeable by far, nightjars churred in the orchard, two of them, or perhaps three, the sound rising and falling, intertwining so that the source could not be made out for sure. There were few birds that he preferred to nightjars, but it was not they that had brought him out of bed: he stood leaning on the balcony rail and presently Jack Aubrey, in a summer-house by the bowling-green, began again, playing very gently in the darkness, improvising wholly for himself, dreaming away on his violin with a mastery that Stephen had never heard equalled, though they had played together for years and years.

Like many other sailors Jack Aubrey had long dreamed of lying in his warm bed all night long; yet although he could now do so with a clear conscience he often rose at unChristian hours, particularly if he were moved by strong emotion, and crept from his bedro #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Nightingale quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#177. There's more to life than just London," said Nightingale.
"People keep saying that," I said. "But I've never actually seen any proof. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#178. Poetry and imagination begin life. A child will fall on its knees on the gravel walk at the sight of a pink hawthorn in full flower, when it is by itself, to praise God for it. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#179. Can she sing? She's practically a Florence Nightingale. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn
Nightingale quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#180. If in the moonlight from the silent bough
Suddenly with precision speak your name
The nightingale, be not assured that now
His wing is limed and his wild virtue tame.
Beauty beyond all feathers that have flown
Is free; you shall not hood her to your wrist,
Nor sting her eyes, nor have her for your own
In any fashion; beauty billed and kissed
Is not your turtle; tread her like a dove -
She loves you not; she never heard of love. #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#181. These people get to the top because they have to, because inside them burns a dream too big, too ever present, too demanding to be denied. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#182. Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Rosalind Miles
#183. Florence Nightingale was never called "the Lady with the Lamp," but "the Lady with the Hammer," an image deftly readjusted by the war reporter of the Times since it was far too coarse for the folks back home. Far from gliding about the hospital with her lamp aloft, Nightingale earned her nickname through a ferocious attack on a locked storeroom when a military commander refused to give her the medical supplies she needed. #Quote by Rosalind Miles
Nightingale quotes by Meg Merriet
#184. The music of cri-cri and cigales droned on in a hypnotic rhythm, punctuated by the occasional croon of the nightingale. I thought of lullabies and how as a child they would placate my disappointment that another day had ended. I was used to sleeping in strange places, and would always focus on sound to relax. In the pawnshop, it was the ticking of grandfather clocks or the tuning of antique instruments. In the thieves' den, it was striking of a match, the bubbling of a water pipe and the gentle murmur floating in off the streets. On the Wastrel, it was the wind or the creaking wood. It was important to me to find lullabies where I could. If death came with a lullaby, perhaps fewer men would fear it. #Quote by Meg Merriet
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#185. If honesty did not exist, it would have to be invented, as it is the surest way of getting rich. #Quote by Earl Nightingale

#186. Holy shit. I'm a Smurf. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#187. I have an idea," I said.
"This better not be a cunning plan," said Leslie.
Nightingale looked blank, but at least it got a chuckle from Dr Walid. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#188. Without a goal we are much like the man with a boat and nowhere to go. Goals give us the drive and energy we need to remain on track long enough for their accomplishment. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#189. We've got to put the fuel in before we can expect heat. Likewise, we've got to be of service first before we can expect money. Don't concern yourself with the money. Be of service. Build. Work. Dream. Create. Do this and you'll find that there is no limit to the prosperity and abundance that will come to you. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Sharon Lawrence
#190. Florence Nightingale was an amazing figure. She created the American Red Cross. She saw the suffering from bad health conditions on the battlefield and in the military hospitals, and she fought like crazy to change the conditions; to make sure that the doctors washed their hands and practiced sanitary measures. She put herself at great risks. #Quote by Sharon Lawrence
Nightingale quotes by Erica Cameron
#191. After all the shit that went down with Calease, I hate sleeping the way some people hate airplanes. Or small, dark spaces. Or spiders. Or being on an airplane in a small, dark space filled with spiders. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Florence Nightingale
#192. Let whoever is in charge keep this simple question in her head (not, how can I always do this right thing myself, but) how can I provide for this right thing to be always done? #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Nightingale quotes by Nick Cave
#193. The butcher bird makes its noise
And asks you to agree
With its brutal nesting habits
And its pointless savagery
Now, the nightingale sings to you
And raises up the ante
I put one hand on your round ripe heart
And the other down your panties #Quote by Nick Cave
Nightingale quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#194. Here was the world wide-awake and yet only for me, all the fresh pure air only for me, all the fragrance breathed only by me, not a living soul hearing the nightingale but me, the sun in a few moments coming up to warm only me. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Nightingale quotes by Suzy Kassem
#195. REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWER

Great people will always be mocked by those
Who feel smaller than them.
A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena.
A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song
At the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker.
Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.
Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
It does not allow the dirt that surrounds it
To affect its growth or beauty.
Be that lotus flower always.
Do not allow any negativity or ugliness
In your surroundings,
Destroy your confidence,
Affect your growth,
Or make you question your self-worth.
It is very normal for one ugly weed
To not want to stand alone.
Remember this always.
If you were ugly,
Or just as small as they feel they are,
Then they would not feel so bitter and envious
Each and every time they are forced
To glance up at magnificently
Divine YOU.

REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWER by Suzy Kassem #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Nightingale quotes by David Bronstein
#196. It would be as naive to study the song of the nightingale, as it would be ridiculous to try and win a King's Gambit against a representative of the old chess guard. #Quote by David Bronstein
Nightingale quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#197. In each human heart are a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale. Diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Nightingale quotes by Erica Cameron
#198. What's up with your friend?" Dawn asks after a few minutes. I doubt she's asking about K.T. I follow Dawn's stare and wonder how much she can see from this far away.
Mari is standing in front of the store's nearly empty stone display and listening as K.T. points out the different types of stone.
"Her name is Mariella."
"I don't usually get a read on people unless they're giving off some pretty strong vibes, but wow. That girl needs an aura cleansing fast."
"Yeah. I know." I look away from Mari, forcing myself to focus on the selection Dawn has laid out in front of me. "It's a work in progress. #Quote by Erica Cameron
Nightingale quotes by Plato
#199. You seem to
think me inferior to the swans in prophecy. They sing before too, but when
they realize that they must die they sing most and most beautifully, as
85 they rejoice that they are about to depart to join the god whose servants
they are. But men, because of their own fear of death, tell lies about the
swans and say that they lament their death and sing in sorrow. They do
not reflect that no bird sings when it is hungry or cold or suffers in any
other way, neither the nightingale nor the swallow nor the hoopoe, though
they do say that these sing laments when in pain. Nor do the swans, but
b I believe that as they belong to Apollo, they are prophetic, have knowledge
of the future and sing of the blessings of the underworld, sing and rejoice
on that day beyond what they did before. As I believe myself to be a
fellow servant with the swans and dedicated to the same god, and have
received from my master a gift of prophecy not inferior to theirs, I am no
more despondent than they on leaving life. #Quote by Plato
Nightingale quotes by Earl Nightingale
#200. Visualization is the human being's vehicle to the future - good, bad, or indifferent. It's strictly in our control. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
