One Thing quotes by Haruki Murakami
#1. I was twenty-nine years old. In six months my twenties would be over. A whole decade since living here. One big blank. Not one thing of value had I gotten out of it, not one meaningful thing had I done. Boredom was all there was.
How were things before? Surely there had to have been something positive. Had there been anything that really moved me, anything that really moved anyone? Maybe, but still it was all gone now. Lost, perhaps meant to be lost. Nothing I can do about it, got to let it go.
At least I was still around. If the only good Indian is a dead Indian, it was my fate to go on living.
What for?
To tell tales to a stone wall?
Really, now. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
One Thing quotes by Cassia Leo
#2. It's always tempting to choose the safer road. The one you think will get you to your destination in one piece. But as you learned today, sometimes the safe roads are nothing but dead ends. And I'll tell you one thing I know for sure. No matter what your destination is, there's no safer road than the one you take with someone you love. #Quote by Cassia Leo
One Thing quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#3. but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14) #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
One Thing quotes by Lewis Carroll
#4. The Mad Gardener's Song

He thought he saw an Elephant,
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
'At length I realise,' he said,
'The bitterness of Life!'

He thought he saw a Buffalo
Upon the chimney-piece:
He looked again, and found it was
His Sister's Husband's Niece.
'Unless you leave this house,' he said,
'I'll send for the Police!'

He thought he saw a Rattlesnake
That questioned him in Greek:
He looked again, and found it was
The Middle of Next Week.
'The one thing I regret,' he said,
'Is that it cannot speak!'

He thought he saw a Banker's Clerk
Descending from the bus:
He looked again, and found it was
A Hippopotamus.
'If this should stay to dine,' he said,
'There won't be much for us!'

He thought he saw a Kangaroo
That worked a coffee-mill:
He looked again, and found it was
A Vegetable-Pill.
'Were I to swallow this,' he said,
'I should be very ill!'

He thought he saw a Coach-and-Four
That stood beside his bed:
He looked again, and found it was
A Bear without a Head.
'Poor thing,' he said, 'poor silly thing!
It's waiting to be fed!'

He thought he saw an Albatross
That fluttered round the lamp:
He looked again, and found it was
A Penny-Postage Stamp.
'You'd best be ge #Quote by Lewis Carroll
One Thing quotes by George W. Bush
#5. It's one thing about insurance, that's a Washington term. #Quote by George W. Bush
One Thing quotes by James Roberts
#6. I've rattled around long enough to have learned one thing: the universe is cold, and cruel, and violent - but only if you choose to look at it that way. For every act of aggression there are a thousand acts of kindness. For every hateful word, a million declarations of love. #Quote by James Roberts
One Thing quotes by Maggie Nelson
#7. One thing they don't tell you 'bout the blues when you got 'em, you keep on fallin' 'cause there ain't no bottom,' sings Emmylou Harris, and she may be right. Perhaps it would help to be told that there is no bottom, save, as they say, wherever and whenever you stop digging. You have to stand there, spade in hand, cold whiskey sweat beaded on your brow, eyes misshapen and wild, some sorry-ass grave digger grown bone-tired of the trade. You have to stand there in the dirty rut you dug, alone in the darkness, in all its pulsing quiet, surrounded by the scandal of corpses. #Quote by Maggie Nelson
One Thing quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
#8. If there's one thing I've realized, it's that you have to be honest. Even if you're scared, even if you're worried that you're going to get your heart stomped on, even if you think that the truth is going to ruin everything, you have to put it out there. Because otherwise, you're fucked. #Quote by Lauren Barnholdt
One Thing quotes by Bob Mayer
#9. One thing I often talk about in my business is that an eBook is not like a print book: it's very, very different. It's organic. It's changing. #Quote by Bob Mayer
One Thing quotes by Shalom Auslander
#10. He could pull this off. He was sure of it. It would have been one thing to protect Anne Frank from the Nazis; he was pretty sure he couldn't have managed that. But protecting his family from Anne Frank? How difficult could that be? #Quote by Shalom Auslander
One Thing quotes by Lisa Ann Walter
#11. Basically, in our society, you can never fix anything enough. The minute you get your head above water about one thing, they let you know that 12 other things about you suck. It's like playing 'Self-Esteem Whack-A-Mole.' #Quote by Lisa Ann Walter
One Thing quotes by K.M. Golland
#12. Let's get one thing straight. I kiss you because I want to fucking kiss you, because I like it and because you taste good. So don't think for one second that I have an ulterior motive. #Quote by K.M. Golland
One Thing quotes by M.A. George
#13. The cleanest civilization I've ever seen ... and the number one thing you pack for a wedding is a jar of dirt? #Quote by M.A. George
One Thing quotes by Frank Stella
#14. The one thing I learned is not to say anything about my own paintings. Keep my mouth shut. You'll never stop hearing what you said. It will come back to you again and again, people will always tell you about it. Even if you were the source of what's wrong with it. #Quote by Frank Stella
One Thing quotes by Satoshi Kanazawa
#15. If any value is deeply evolutionarily familiar, it is reproductive success. If any value is truly unnatural, if there is one thing that humans (and all other species in nature) are decisively not designed for, it is voluntary childlessness. All living organisms in nature, including humans, are evolutionarily designed to reproduce. Reproductive success is the ultimate end of all biological existence. #Quote by Satoshi Kanazawa
One Thing quotes by Brene Brown
#16. What I've learned through my work and what I heard that night in Newtown makes one thing clear: Not enough of us know how to sit in pain with others. Worse, our discomfort shows up in ways that can hurt people and reinforce their isolation. I have started to believe that crying with strangers in person could save the world. #Quote by Brene Brown
One Thing quotes by Bill Parcells
#17. Accept false steps as opportunities to learn. It's one thing to hate failure, it's another to fear it. #Quote by Bill Parcells
One Thing quotes by Lil' Kim
#18. The one thing I do like is lotion and moisture on my hands and face. I love to have my face moisturized. I like different ones. I like Natura Bisse. #Quote by Lil' Kim
One Thing quotes by Alice Munro
#19. One thing in the school was captivating, lovely. Pictures of birds. Rose didn't know if the teacher had climbed up and nailed them above the blackboard, too high for easy desecration, if they were her first and last hopeful effort, or if they dated from some earlier, easier time in the school's history. Where had they come from, how had they arrived there, when nothing else did, in the way of decoration, illustration?

A red-headed woodpecker; an oriole; a blue jay; a Canada goose. The colors clear and long-lasting. Backgrounds of pure snow, of blossoming branches, of heady summer sky. In an ordinary classroom they would not have seemed so extraordinary. Here they were bright and eloquent, so much at variance with everything else that what they seemed to represent was not the birds themselves, not those skies and snows, but some other world of hardy innocence, bounteous information, privileged lightheartedness. No stealing from lunch pails there; no slashing coats; no pulling down pants and probing with painful sticks; no fucking; no Franny. #Quote by Alice Munro
One Thing quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#20. But I cant stand saying one thing when everyone knows I mean another. Whats the use in such hypocrisy? If people arrange the world that way for women, theres no good pretending it's arranged the other way ... #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
One Thing quotes by Edwin O'Connor
#21. I've often thought that among all the afflicting sights of the world, none can be much more so than this one short walk along three city blocks, where night after night it's possible to see--indeed, it's impossible not to see--these faces from which hope and joy and dignity and light have been draining so steadily and for so long that now there is nothing left but this assortment of indifferent, damaged masks. They belong to human beings who, after a lifetime of struggling to become one thing or another, have succeeded only in becoming the rough sketches of their species, recognizable but empty, the bruised and wretched bodies and souls of the saddest people on earth: the people who no longer care. #Quote by Edwin O'Connor
One Thing quotes by Rohinton Mistry
#22. Flirting with madness is one thing. But when madness starts flirting back, its time to call the whole thing off. #Quote by Rohinton Mistry
One Thing quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#23. Noble disappointment, noble self-denial are not to be admired, not even to be pardoned, if they bring bitterness. It is one thing to enter the kingdom of heaven maim; another to maim yourself and stay without. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
One Thing quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#24. If you're going to be a true Christian, I'll tell you one thing amongst others: it'll be a lonely life. It's a narrow way and it becomes narrower and narrower and narrower. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
One Thing quotes by Peter Drucker
#25. The real achiever do one thing at a time. #Quote by Peter Drucker
One Thing quotes by Wes Anderson
#26. The one thing I've observed over the years is the best way to get an actor to not want to play a certain role is to offer it to them. That makes them say, "Well, maybe it's not that good. These guys don't want me to do this ... " #Quote by Wes Anderson
One Thing quotes by Smith Wigglesworth
#27. The Lord would so cleanse the motive and desires of our hearts that we will seek but one thing only, and that is, His glory. #Quote by Smith Wigglesworth
One Thing quotes by Florence Maule Updegraff
#28. One thing that kept me from being unhappy was the mountains, for with mountaintops to see, a body can't quite despair. #Quote by Florence Maule Updegraff
One Thing quotes by Prem
#29. There are always one thing missing in the life. No matter what it is? #Quote by Prem
One Thing quotes by Donald M. Nelson
#30. We must drop the idea that change comes slowly. It does ordinarily - in part because we think it does. Today changes must come fast; and we must adjust our mental habits, so that we can accept comfortably the idea of stopping one thing and beginning another overnight. We must discard the idea that past routine, past ways of doing things, are probably the best ways. On the contrary, we must assume that there is probably a better way to do almost everything. We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all. #Quote by Donald M. Nelson
One Thing quotes by Ron Paul
#31. Must there always be "wars and rumors of war"? Accepting the inevitability of war is one thing, but glorifying war in the name of God and claiming that it reflects strong character and patriotism is quite another. #Quote by Ron Paul
One Thing quotes by William Albert Allard
#32. What's really important is to simplify. The work of most photographers would be improved immensely if they could do one thing: get rid of the extraneous. If you strive for simplicity, you are more likely to reach the viewer. #Quote by William Albert Allard
One Thing quotes by George Crook
#33. All the tribes tell the same story. They are surrounded on all sides, the game is destroyed or driven away; they are left to starve, and there remains but one thing for them to do - fight while they can. #Quote by George Crook
One Thing quotes by Daniel Tosh
#34. It's funny ... you can make fun of AIDS or Haiti, but if you make fun of some starlet in Hollywood's looks? That's like the one thing ... the line you are not to cross. #Quote by Daniel Tosh
One Thing quotes by Patsy Cline
#35. The one thing I wanted to do more than anything else was sing country music. #Quote by Patsy Cline
One Thing quotes by Agona Apell
#36. There is only one thing worse than a little baby who won't stop crying: it is a big baby who won't stop whining about it #Quote by Agona Apell
One Thing quotes by Wes Fesler
#37. When the world grinds you down, bent to tear you apart, cling to what you hold dear, and stay true to your heart. For the world has a way to dismantle your cause, to exploit what you lack and expose all your flaws. But when every layer of your being is gone, and it seems there's no point anymore to go on; just remember one thing, at the end of the day, when you have self-respect they can't take that away. #Quote by Wes Fesler
One Thing quotes by Kyle Chandler
#38. Sometimes a scene may be about one thing, and it may end up still being about that, but the emotionality of it comes from somewhere else, or the humor of it comes from somewhere else, and it gives it that real-life quality. #Quote by Kyle Chandler
One Thing quotes by J.A. Redmerski
#39. I think it was the one thing I didn't like about him or about guys in general: when a girl says she doesn't want to talk about it, the truth is that she usually does. I wanted him to pry it out of me. Of course, I would've pretended to be a little angry that he didn't just leave me alone, but eventually I would've told him, when I was tired of pretending. #Quote by J.A. Redmerski
One Thing quotes by Anna Quindlen
#40. I can't begin to predict how news will be delivered to readers in, say, 100 years. But I do know one thing that hasn't changed: Whatever the delivery system, whether it's a magazine, book or blog, people like vivid writing, strong stories and credible people. So while the venue is changing rapidly, human nature isn't, which I find soothing. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
One Thing quotes by Ronald H. Nash
#41. One thing evangelicals want is a reprieve from intolerance against their beliefs, values, and practices. #Quote by Ronald H. Nash
One Thing quotes by R.F. Kuang
#42. We don't die so much as we return to the void. We dissolve. We lose our ego. We change from being just one thing to becoming everything. Most of us, at least. #Quote by R.F. Kuang
One Thing quotes by Colleen Hoover
#43. I don't know why we ever started drifting apart, but I'm certain of one thing: I'll never allow it to happen again #Quote by Colleen Hoover
One Thing quotes by Karl Marx
#44. For as soon as the distribution of labour comes into being, each man has a particular, exclusive sphere of activity, which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape. He is a hunter, a fisherman, a herdsman, or a critical critic, and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood; while in communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, herdsman or critic. #Quote by Karl Marx
One Thing quotes by Helen McCloy
#45. That's the one thing a politician mustn't have - political opinions or principles. He can have prejudices - indeed he must have prejudices and share all the popular political superstitions of the moment as ardently as he can. But he must not have principles. He must never let the people suspect that they cannot eat their cake and have it. He must promise them a defense program and a higher standard of living. He must never use that dreadful little word or. #Quote by Helen McCloy
One Thing quotes by J.D. Robb
#46. Roarke, one thing." She walked to him, well aware he was all but snarling with temper. "I haven't kissed you good-bye," she murmured and did so with a thoroughness that rocked him
back on his heels. "Thank you." Before he could speak, she kissed him again. "For always knowing what matters to me."
"You're welcome." Possessively, he ran a hand over her tousled hair. "Miss me." "I already am." "Don't take any unnecessary chances." His hands gripped in her hair hard, briefly. "There's
no use asking you not to take the necessary ones."
"Then don't." Her heart stuttered when he kissed her hand. "Safe trip, " she told him when he stepped into the elevator. She was new at it, so waited until the doors were almost shut. "I
love you." The last thing she saw was the flash of his grin. #Quote by J.D. Robb
One Thing quotes by Zoketsu Norman Fischer
#47. Okay, here is the uplifting part: Your life isn't and has never been about you ... about what you accomplish, how successful you are or are not, how much money you make, what sort of position you ascend to, ... or how much good you do for others or the world at large. Your life, like mine, and like everyone else's has always been about one thing: love. #Quote by Zoketsu Norman Fischer
One Thing quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#48. One of our Church educators published what he purports to be a history of the Church's stand on the question of organic evolution. His thesis challenges the integrity of a prophet of God. He suggests that Joseph Fielding Smith published his work, Man: His Origin and Destiny, against the counsel of the First Presidency and his own Brethren. This writer's interpretation is not only inaccurate, but it also runs counter to the testimony of Elder Mark E. Petersen, who wrote this foreword to Elder Smith's book, a book I would encourage all to read. Elder Petersen said:

Some of us [members of the Council of the Twelve] urged [Elder Joseph Fielding Smith] to write a book on the creation of the world and the origin of man.... The present volume is the result. It is a most remarkable presentation of material from both sources [science and religion] under discussion. It will fill a great need in the Church and will be particularly invaluable to students who have become confused by the misapplication of information derived from scientific experimentation.


When one understands that the author to whom I alluded is an exponent of the theory of organic evolution, his motive in disparaging President Joseph Fielding Smith becomes apparent. To hold to a private opinion on such matters is one thing, but when one undertakes to publish his views to discredit the work of a prophet, it is a very serious matter.

It is also apparent to all who have the Spirit o #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
One Thing quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#49. Sex is the one thing you cannot really swindle; and it is the centre of the worst swindling of all, emotional swindling ... Sex lashes out against counterfeit emotion, and is ruthless, devastating against false love. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
One Thing quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#50. There was only one thing that someone with great power wanted. More of it #Quote by Mary E. Pearson
One Thing quotes by Robert Silverberg
#51. It was the same in just about every trade. Sooner or later someone decided it needed organizing, and the one thing you could be sure of was that the organizers weren't going to be the people who, by general acknowledgment, were at the top of their craft. They were working too hard. To be fair, it generally wasn't done by the worst, neither. They were working hard, too. They had to. #Quote by Robert Silverberg
One Thing quotes by William Styron
#52. When, in the autumn of 1947, I was fired from the first and only job I have ever held, I wanted one thing out of life: to become a writer. #Quote by William Styron
One Thing quotes by Sarah Bessey
#53. I will always pray as if this one thing is true: God is for us. And it's worthwhile to keep knocking.
That's all I know about faith for sure. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
One Thing quotes by Jami Brumfield
#54. I told my father I would lay down my life, give all I have to my alpha except one thing, my heart. My heart belongs to my mate." Gabriel shook his head and gave her a devilish grin, "It's rather ironic that my new alpha happens to be my mate and has owned my heart since birth. #Quote by Jami Brumfield
One Thing quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#55. How long Archibald slept he could not have said. He woke some hours later with a vague feeling that a thunderstorm of unusual violence had broken out in his immediate neighborhood. But this, he realized as the mists of slumber cleared away, was an error. The noise which had disturbed him was not thunder but the sound of someone snoring. Snoring like the dickens. The walls seemed to be vibrating like the deck of an ocean liner....

His spirit was not so completely broken as to make him lie supinely down beneath that snoring. The sound filled him, as snoring fills every right-thinking man, with a seething resentment and a passionate yearning for justice, and he climbed out of bed with the intention of taking the proper steps through the recognized channels. It is the custom nowadays to disparage the educational methods of the English public school and to maintain that they are not practical and of a kind to fit the growing boy for the problems of afterlife. But you do learn one thing at a public school, and that is how to act when somebody starts snoring.

You jolly well grab a cake of soap and pop in and stuff it down the blighter's throat. And this is what Archibald proposed - God willing - to do. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
One Thing quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#56. Whatever else India may not be, she is at least one thing, She is the greatest storehouse of spiritual knowledge. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
One Thing quotes by Danny DeVito
#57. I'll tell you one thing, it's a cruel, cruel world. #Quote by Danny DeVito
One Thing quotes by Grant Morrison
#58. Animal Man: 'Listen, just tell me one thing: am I REAL or what?'
Grant Morrison: 'Of COURSE you're real! We wouldn't be here talking if you weren't real.
'You existed long before I wrote about you and, if you're lucky, you'll still be young when I'm old or dead.
'You're more real than I am. #Quote by Grant Morrison
One Thing quotes by Samantha Young
#59. No one will ever understand like I do. You're so different with me, baby. You take care of me. You make me feel safe. You're not who you think you are. Didn't you once tell me that people aren't just one thing? You're so much more to me than anything you might have done in the past. #Quote by Samantha Young
One Thing quotes by John C. Maxwell
#60. Attitude isn't everything, but it is one thing that can make a difference in your life. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
One Thing quotes by John Green
#61. I thought of the one thing about home that I missed, my dad's study with its built-in, floor-to-ceiling shelves sagging with thick biographies and the black leather chair that kept me just uncomfortable enough to keep from feeling sleepy as I read. #Quote by John Green
One Thing quotes by J.G. Holland
#62. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slow, endures. #Quote by J.G. Holland
One Thing quotes by Josh Billings
#63. Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there. #Quote by Josh Billings
One Thing quotes by Freya Stark
#64. Curiosity is the one thing invincible in Nature. #Quote by Freya Stark
One Thing quotes by Milton Berle
#65. Your marriage is in trouble if your wife says, 'You're only interested in one thing,' and you can't remember what it is. #Quote by Milton Berle
One Thing quotes by Carl Sagan
#66. Of all the planets, moons, asteroids, and comets in our Solar System, there is fire only on Earth - because there are large amounts of oxygen gas, O2, only on Earth. Fire was, much later, to have profound consequences for life and intelligence. One thing leads to another. #Quote by Carl Sagan
One Thing quotes by Bertrand Russell
#67. The more things a man is interested in, the more opportunities of happiness he has and the less he is at the mercy of fate, since if he loses one thing he can fall back upon another. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
One Thing quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#68. Sweet for a little even to fear, and sweet,
O love, to lay down fear at love's fair feet;
Shall not some fiery memory of his breath
Lie sweet on lips that touch the lips of death?
Yet leave me not; yet, if thou wilt, be free;
Love me no more, but love my love of thee.
Love where thou wilt, and live thy life; and I,
One thing I can, and one love cannot - die.
Pass from me; yet thine arms, thine eyes, thine hair,
Feed my desire and deaden my despair.
Yet once more ere time change us, ere my cheek
Whiten, ere hope be dumb or sorrow speak,
Yet once more ere thou hate me, one full kiss;
Keep other hours for others, save me this.
Yea, and I will not (if it please thee) weep,
Lest thou be sad; I will but sigh, and sleep.
Sweet, does death hurt? thou canst not do me wrong:
I shall not lack thee, as I loved thee, long.
Hast thou not given me above all that live
Joy, and a little sorrow shalt not give?
What even though fairer fingers of strange girls
Pass nestling through thy beautiful boy's curls
As mine did, or those curled lithe lips of thine
Meet theirs as these, all theirs come after mine;
And though I were not, though I be not, best,
I have loved and love thee more than all the rest.
O love, O lover, loose or hold me fast,
I had thee first, whoever have thee last;
Fairer or not, what need I know, what care?
To thy fair bud my blossom onc #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
One Thing quotes by Courteney Cox
#69. Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. #Quote by Courteney Cox
One Thing quotes by Tammara Webber
#70. Remember last fall, when you needed to be reckless, and I told you to use me? Well, now, it's time to be fearless. I can't promise that you won't be hurt again, because life can suck. And, sometimes it hurts like hell. I'm asking you now to have faith in one thing, for now: the fact that when we're alone, I'm just Reid, and you're just Dori, and we're going to love each other for the rest of our lives. #Quote by Tammara Webber
One Thing quotes by Saleem Haddad
#71. In America the gay world touched my life at the margins, though references and images and occasional conversations with men and women who celebrated their homosexuality with pride. As far as I could see there was nothing to be proud about. There was only pain, humiliation and shame. If I were to join this group, I would have to act proud and hide my feelings of rejection and loneliness. If I were to show these men and women that I was terrified for my future, I would be regarded as misguided or a victim of Islam or Arabness. But if there was one thing I wsa certain of it was that there was nothing misguided about my feelings, and I did not feel that Islam or my Arabness was to blame. If I were to join this group, I would simply go from the repressiveness of secrecy to the repressiveness of pride. I didn't despise my shame. I had no reason to do so. My shame illuminated my intense attachment to the world, my desire to be connected with others. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
One Thing quotes by Anna Akana
#72. One thing that I really like to do is, I'll look in the mirror, and I'll imagine that I'm rapidly aging, until I'm just a skull. #Quote by Anna Akana
One Thing quotes by Herman Melville
#73. Queequeg explained to me that his world was very different from ours. However, one thing he learned quickly, was that within all groups of people there are kind men and there are unkind men. #Quote by Herman Melville
One Thing quotes by Lou Reed
#74. I try very much, whenever I do projects, whatever it is, there's only one thing on my mind, only one thing. #Quote by Lou Reed
One Thing quotes by M. Russell Ballard
#75. But one thing is certain: the commandments have not changed. Let there be no mistake about that. Right is still right. Wrong is still wrong, no matter how cleverly cloaked in respectability or political correctness. We believe in chastity before marriage and fidelity ever after. That standard is an absolute standard of truth. It is neither subject to public opinion polls nor dependent upon situation or circumstance. There is no need to debate it or other gospel standards. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
One Thing quotes by Jasmine Guy
#76. I have often felt bad that I am not great at any one thing. Like just a super super singer. Or the Gregory Hines of something. #Quote by Jasmine Guy
One Thing quotes by Antonio Tabucchi
#77. I've come to realize one thing, that stories are always bigger than we are, they happen to us and we are their protagonists without realizing it, but in the stories we live, we aren't the true protagonists, the true protagonist is the story itself. #Quote by Antonio Tabucchi
One Thing quotes by Michael Palmer
#78. When you're becoming overwhelmed, just make a list. Make a list and do one thing at a time. #Quote by Michael Palmer
One Thing quotes by Johnny Carson
#79. Entertainment is like any other major industry; it's cold, big business. The business end wants to know one thing: Can you do the job? If you can, you're in, you're made; if you can't, you're out. #Quote by Johnny Carson
One Thing quotes by Susanna Sonnenberg
#80. I love her," I said, but I couldn't think of one thing I still did to show her. #Quote by Susanna Sonnenberg
One Thing quotes by John Glenn
#81. If there is one thing I've learned in my years on this planet, it's that the happiest and most fulfilled people I've known are those who devoted themselves to something bigger and more profound than merely their own self interest. #Quote by John Glenn
One Thing quotes by Rick Yancey
#82. You're not the only one," he says through gritted teeth. "My twelve-year-old sister died in my arms. She choked to death on her own blood. And there was nothing I could do. It makes me sick, the way you act as if the worst disaster in human history somehow revolves around you. You're not the only one who's lost everything - not the only one who thinks they've found the one thing that makes any of this shit make sense. You have your promise to Sammy, and I have you. #Quote by Rick Yancey
One Thing quotes by Celia Rivenbark
#83. I braced myself for something wise and useful. Dink, like most Bubbas, could be quite insightful and kind when you least expected it.
"Always remember one thing in this life," he said, pausing to stare at the koala's big brown glass eyes. I knew he woulda shot it if we were really in the wild.
"What is it, Dink? What should I remember? I could really use some perspective here."
"Always remember ... you can't drink all day if you don't start in the mornin'. #Quote by Celia Rivenbark
One Thing quotes by Jake Delhomme
#84. He hasn't lost his vision. That's one thing. He's good. The guy is smooth and knows how to set up blocks. He's a veteran, too. It's fun to watch him run. Hopefully everything works out all right physically, but certainly he looks good so far. #Quote by Jake Delhomme
One Thing quotes by Julianna Margulies
#85. It's one thing in this business to actually work. 5 percent of the Screen Actors' Guild works. It's another thing to do work that's satisfying and that people are loving. #Quote by Julianna Margulies
One Thing quotes by Thad Matta
#86. Working hard is one thing, but working hard with purpose is what separates the good from the great #Quote by Thad Matta
One Thing quotes by Brian Posehn
#87. Just got a new car - got a little Miata convertible. Pretty happy about it, except for one thing: I'm 6-foot-6, so now I look like a McDonald's toy. #Quote by Brian Posehn
One Thing quotes by J.K. Rowling
#88. He knew one thing only, and it was beyond fear or reason: He was not going to die crouching here like a child playing hide-and-seek; he was not going to die kneeling at Voldemort's feet ... he was going to die upright like his father, and he was going to die trying to defend himself, even if no defense was possible ... #Quote by J.K. Rowling
One Thing quotes by Alicia Cook
#89. It's one thing to have a support system in your life
to cheer you on during the instances when
everyone is rooting for you. However, it's another
thing entirely to look back in your darkest
moments and still see them standing in your
corner, encouraging you to stay in the ring and
FIGHT, when the odds aren't in your favor and all
you want to do is throw in the towel.
Not many people in this life will be on your side
even when they aren't on your side. Even less who
momentarily will slam doors out of frustration but
never actually lock you out.
Unconditional love; the definition of sister. #Quote by Alicia Cook
One Thing quotes by Roger Zelazny
#90. It would be nice if there were some one thing constant and unchanging in the universe. If there is such a thing, then it is a thing which would have to be stronger than love, and it is a thing which I do not know. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
One Thing quotes by Martha Wainwright
#91. If there's one thing that differentiates me from the rest of my family it's the rock element. I hung out with friends who like punk rock a lot. Not getting a big record deal, and having a hard time for years, it means you have to prove yourself and scratch your way up from nothing. #Quote by Martha Wainwright
One Thing quotes by Bob Marley
#92. Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all. #Quote by Bob Marley
One Thing quotes by Elfriede Jelinek
#93. The ignorant majority, which does however possess one thing in abundance: It is raring for a fight. #Quote by Elfriede Jelinek
One Thing quotes by Oren Peli
#94. I'm pretty content with what I have, but the one thing that I don't have is something like the iPod - but PC-based. I think that would be cool. #Quote by Oren Peli
One Thing quotes by Herbie Hancock
#95. One thing I like about jazz is that it emphasized doing things differently from what other people were doing. #Quote by Herbie Hancock
One Thing quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#96. A person who had no one would be well advised to cobble together some passable ghost. Breathe it into being and coax it along with words of love. Offer it each phantom crumb and shield it from harm with your body. As for me my only hope is for eternal nothingness and I hope it with all my heart. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
One Thing quotes by S.L. Jennings
#97. I'm a lot of things – crass, stubborn, brutally honest, egotistical – but one thing I am not, is careless. I know my boundaries, and I never cross them. In a business where lines can be easily blurred, those boundaries are outlined in black Sharpie, traced in gasoline, then set the fuck on fire, ensuring that no one even gets close enough to inhale the fumes of temptation.
Yet, here I am, touching, tempting, tasting the limits. Begging to get burned by an angel with a halo of fire. #Quote by S.L. Jennings

One Thing quotes by Nalini Singh
#102. Reaching up, he began using the exercise bar to do chin-ups. The repetitive act helped focus his mind as it multitasked. One thing was certain - he refused to never again experience the intimacy of being with Brenna. It wasn't the sex, though that had been the most amazing experience of his life. It was the way he'd made her laugh, made her smile, made her complain and then cuddle. All because she'd felt safe, reassured by the strength of their emotional connection.
He would not steal that feeling from her. And he most definitely was not going to surrender her to another male who could give her what she needed. The idea made him want to break something. #Quote by Nalini Singh
One Thing quotes by Joseph Wood Krutch
#103. The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only. #Quote by Joseph Wood Krutch
One Thing quotes by Tomi Adeyemi
#104. Children of Blood and Bone was written during a time where I kept turning on the news and seeing stories of unarmed black men, women, and children being shot by the police. I felt afraid and angry and helpless, but this book was the one thing that made me feel like I could do something about it. I told myself that if just one person could read it and have their hearts or minds changed, then I would've done something meaningful against a problem that often feels so much bigger than myself. #Quote by Tomi Adeyemi
One Thing quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#105. Isaac was a stranger and he had seen more of my wounds than anyone else. Not because I chose him like I did Nick. He was just always there. That's what scared me. It was one thing inviting someone into your life, choosing to put your head on the train tracks and wait for imminent death, but this - this I had no control over. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
One Thing quotes by Colin Andersen
#106. and one thing I'm certain

One Thing quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#107. It was one thing to have guessed it, another to have had that guess confirmed beyond possibility of refutation. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
One Thing quotes by Darrell Royal
#108. For one thing, I like to walk when I play golf. Now I don't walk the whole way, but I try not to be the driver when in a cart. #Quote by Darrell Royal
One Thing quotes by Nora Raleigh Baskin
#109. You know how they say there's only one thing in the universe that's constant?' Jonas started. 'Change. Change is the only constant in the universe. And left alone, all things return to chaos. #Quote by Nora Raleigh Baskin
One Thing quotes by Margaret Atwood
#110. Men are sex machines, said Aunt Lydia, and not much more. They only want one thing. You must learn to manipulate them, for your own good. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
One Thing quotes by Bryan Burrough
#111. Everyone in the room knew about leveraged buyouts, often called LBOs. In an LBO, a small group of senior executives, usually working with a Wall Street partner, proposes to buy its company from public shareholders, using massive amounts of borrowed money. Critics of this procedure called it stealing the company from its owners and fretted that the growing mountain of corporate debt was hindering America's ability to compete abroad. Everyone knew LBOs meant deep cuts in research and every other imaginable budget, all sacrificed to pay off debt. Proponents insisted that companies forced to meet steep debt payments grew lean and mean. On one thing they all agreed: The executives who launched LBOs got filthy rich. #Quote by Bryan Burrough
One Thing quotes by Andy Warhol
#112. Believe me ... I've made a career out of being the right thing in the wrong space and the wrong thing in the right space. That's one thing ... I really do know about. #Quote by Andy Warhol
One Thing quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#113. If you think one thing is sacred but you cannot stand the other, if you love the Creator but hate the creation, that is vulgarity. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev

One Thing quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#116. I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
One Thing quotes by Matthew Zapruder
#117. That is a horrible thing in a way, but it is the one thing poets can bring back to experience, this intense focus on language, which activates words as a portal back into experience. It's a mysterious process that's very hard to articulate, because it's focused entirely on the material of language in a way, but in the interests not just of language itself whatever that would mean - that's the mistake, by the way, that so many so-called "experimental" poets make - but in service to human experience. #Quote by Matthew Zapruder
One Thing quotes by Dave Attell
#118. I tell you one thing that's great about children. They don't need a show to have fun. What do they need? A book of matches, some oily rags, a little brother ... that's all they need. #Quote by Dave Attell
One Thing quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#119. There are mountains in the world,' I said, 'which are huge, immense and dotted all over with monasteries. And in those monasteries live monks in saffron robes. They stay seated, with crossed legs, for one, two, six months at a time, thinking of one thing and one thing only. One thing, do you hear? Not two - one! They don't think of women and lignite or books and lignite, as we do; they concentrate their minds on one and the same thing, and they achieve miracles. You have seen what happens when you hold a glass out to the sun and concentrate all the rays onto one spot,
Zorba? That spot soon catches fire, doesn't it? Why? Because the sun's power has not been dispersed but concentrated on that one spot. It is the same with men's minds. You do miracles, if you concentrate your mind on one thing and only one. Do you understand, Zorba? #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
One Thing quotes by Peter David
#120. What do we think of sex on television? Frankly, I think it's a pain. For one thing, the cable box gets wedged into your back and gets real uncomfortable ... #Quote by Peter David
One Thing quotes by Fabio Geda
#121. If you've only just arrived(and the fact that you've only just arrived is obvious the moment you open your mouth to ask for something), if you don't know where you are,or how things work in a place,or how your'e supposed to behave, people can easily take advantage of you.One thing I wanted to avoid (one among many others, like dying) was people taking advantage of me. #Quote by Fabio Geda
One Thing quotes by Don DeLillo
#122. She wanted to stay focused, one thing following sensibly upon another. There were moments when she wasn't talking so much as fading into time, dropping back into some funnelled stretch of recent past #Quote by Don DeLillo
One Thing quotes by Bella Andre
#123. Once upon a time, he'd believed that his music, his guitar, and his songs were everything he needed. But tonight, as his tour bus roared down yet another highway to yet another stadium, Ford finally realized that his songs and audiences could never even come close to filling the hole inside of him.
Only one thing - only one person - had ever been able to do that.
Only Mia. #Quote by Bella Andre
One Thing quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#124. In a world plagued with commonplace tragedies, only one thing exists that truly has the power to save lives, and that is love. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
One Thing quotes by David Eddings
#125. The policeman recognized me, but I suppose that's only natural. Silk was going to kill him, but I said no."
"Why?" Beldin asked bluntly.
"We were in the middle of a busy street for one thing. Killing somebody's the sort of thing you ought to do in private, wouldn't you say? #Quote by David Eddings
One Thing quotes by Conan O'Brien
#126. As you leave these gates and re-enter society, one thing is certain. Everyone out there is going to hate you. Never tell anyone in a roadside diner that you went to Harvard. In those situations, the correct response to, 'Where did you go to school?' is 'School? I never had much in the way of book learnin' and such.' And then get in your BMW and get the hell out of there. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
One Thing quotes by Durga Chew-Bose
#127. To this day, watching a woman mindlessly tend to one thing while doing something else absorbs me. Like securing the backs of her earrings while wiggling her feet into her shoes. Like staring into some middle distance, where lines soften, and where she separates the relevant from the immaterial. #Quote by Durga Chew-Bose
One Thing quotes by Mary Anna King
#128. But in life, no one is spared, no one is let off the hook. Those buried sensations had to come out, be felt, addressed, and lived through.
I wish I could say I let it all out that night. All of the tears, all of the screams, all of the bullshit. But I didn't. I couldn't. It would take something much stronger to bring all that out of me. Still. By the time the sun rose the next morning, one thing had changed: I was no longer full of shit... I drove west; needing to escape the gravitational pull of both of my families and anyone who knew them. I needed to wallow in uncertainty, without the balancing effects of religion or school, or friends, or family to cling to. If I was ever going to figure out who I was, I needed to be a stranger again. #Quote by Mary Anna King
One Thing quotes by Steve Goodier
#129. What if today you gave yourself permission to be outrageously kind? What if you extended as much good will and kindness as you can possibly muster to every person you meet? And what if you did it with no thought of reward? I'm sure of one thing: it will be a day you will never regret. #Quote by Steve Goodier
One Thing quotes by Maxim Gorky
#130. I was consumed by a restless curiosity, a thirst for knowing everything in the shortest possible time. This is a side of my character that has prevented me all my life from devoting myself seriously to any one thing. #Quote by Maxim Gorky
One Thing quotes by Miroslav Krleza
#131. Whatever the answer, one senses one thing clearly: the man from whose mind this chaotic vision emanated did not purchase his "outlook on life" in a dime store, but came into this chapel like a meteor and left behind him the smell of cosmic sulphur...And century after century men come here bleating like goats, staring wide eyed at these testimonies of human passion and intelligence... #Quote by Miroslav Krleza
One Thing quotes by Rumi
#132. You can accomplish a hundred other things but if you do not accomplish the one thing for which you have been sent, it will be as if you have done nothing. #Quote by Rumi
One Thing quotes by Dan Brown
#133. Suggesting a married Jesus is one thing, but questioning the Resurrection undermines the very heart of Christian belief. #Quote by Dan Brown
One Thing quotes by Tom Felton
#134. One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money - putting a price on your childhood - is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can't put a price on them. #Quote by Tom Felton
One Thing quotes by Fabian Black
#135. I had proven one thing to myself. Love was a complication best lived without. I made a promise. I wouldn't fall again. #Quote by Fabian Black
One Thing quotes by Anya Nowlan
#136. If there was one thing to know about families, then it was that they'd never, ever stop meddling in your life. #Quote by Anya Nowlan
One Thing quotes by Emmet Fox
#137. DYNAMITE (13 Sticks for Immediate Use - Handle with Care) PLAN tomorrow's work today. Review the events of the day, very briefly before retiring. Keep your voice down. No screamers wanted. Train yourself to write very legibly. Keep your good humor even if you lose your shirt. Defend those who are absent. Hear the other side before you judge. Don't cry over spilt milk. Learn to do one thing as well as anyone on earth can do it. Use your company manners on the family. If you must be rude, let strangers have it. Keep all your goods and possessions neat and orderly. Get rid of things that you do not use. Every day do something to help someone else. Read the Bible every day. These points may seem to be trite and obvious, but each one has hidden behind it, an invincible law of psychology and metaphysics. Try them. #Quote by Emmet Fox
One Thing quotes by Michele Sinclair
#138. Seeing the confounded look on the young soldier's face, Constance offered some advice. "You can try and follow, but you'll never catch her. And even if you did,you would then have to explain just why you thought her welfare more important than that of her sisters, which trust me,you don't want to have to defend. So if I were you,I would do as instructed and see to the safety of the group. For one thing is for certain, that doesn't include her ladyship anymore." Then she marched over to her horse,made a quick silent prayer,and struggled back onto the mare's back,cursing all the while. #Quote by Michele Sinclair
One Thing quotes by Lisa Bloom
#139. No matter how much money you make or don't, how many friends you think you have or lack or how much you know you are loved - or not, we all cherish one thing above all else, the intrinsic need to connect #Quote by Lisa Bloom
One Thing quotes by Annie Dillard
#140. I feel as though I stand at the foot of an infinitely high staircase, down which some exuberant spirit is flinging tennis ball after tennis ball, eternally, and the one thing I want in the world is a tennis ball. #Quote by Annie Dillard
One Thing quotes by Virginia Postrel
#141. The mere existence of 'Buffy' proves the declinists wrong about one thing: Hollywood commercialism can produce great art. Complex and evolving characters. Playful language. Joy and sorrow, pathos and elation. Episodes that dare to be different - to tell stories in silence or in song. Big themes and terrible choices. #Quote by Virginia Postrel
One Thing quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#142. Years ago, after the publication of my third book, a journalist once asked me if you could tell right away whether a student had a mind for law or not, and the answer is: Sometimes. But often, you're wrong - the student who seemed so bright in the first half of the semester becomes steadily less so as the year goes on, and the student about whom you never thought one thing or another is the one who emerges as a dazzler, someone you love hearing think. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
One Thing quotes by April E. Brucker
#143. If people-young and old-can get one thing from my book I hope it is this: that there dream do count, no matter how big or small. #Quote by April E. Brucker
One Thing quotes by Sander Levin
#144. Power, that's one thing, but love of family and of siblings is more important, is more powerful than any other power - at least earthly power, at least earthly power. #Quote by Sander Levin

One Thing quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#146. We don't have to do anything at all to die... Living is more complex. There's one thing we always have to do. Breathe. In and out, every single day in every hour minute and moment we must inhale whether we like it or not. Even as we plan to asphyxiate our hopes and dreams we still breath. Even as we wither away and sell our dignity to the man on the corner we breathe. We breathe when we're wrong, we breathe when we're right, we breathe even when we slip of the ledge toward an early grave. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
One Thing quotes by Alexa Land

One Thing quotes by Guy Laliberte
#151. In life I've learned one thing; if you want to be good you have to connect with the best people. So I got very close to the high-stakes players here. I get to watch them and play with them a little bit. #Quote by Guy Laliberte
One Thing quotes by Ken Kesey
#152. I lay in bed the night before the fishing trip and thought it over, about my being deaf, about the years of not letting on I heard what was said, and I wonder if I can ever act any other way again. But I remembered one thing: it wasn't me that started acting deaf; it was people that first started acting like I was too dumb to hear or see or say anything at all. #Quote by Ken Kesey
One Thing quotes by Ken Mehlman
#153. We've suffered a war, and one thing we know: Whenever our nation's faced war, whether it was in the 1980s when we were winning the Cold War or in the 1940s during World War II, the responsible thing to do has been to borrow money to win the war. #Quote by Ken Mehlman
One Thing quotes by K. Pinson

One Thing quotes by Marjan Kamali
#156. Is he kind?" Darya asked. "Because, Mina, there's a lot to be said for education. And a profession. And family history. And, well, looks. But if there's one thing that matters, it's character. That's the only thing that lasts. Degrees can lose significance, jobs can be lost, a family's past really shouldn't define a person, and as for looks . . ." Darya sighed. "Well, looks fade for the best of us. But character, Mina, is what lasts. Kindness will carry you through the ups and downs of life. #Quote by Marjan Kamali

One Thing quotes by Gina Wings
#158. It was an instant-fix afternoon quickie, and the Architect was a master of the kind. After I locked my front door after him, still radiant from recent orgasmic thrill, I had it all figured out: love yourself. Take care of yourself. Nurture yourself. Have your needs met; and everything will fit in its space. Eventually, if not earlier.
Yet, there was one thing I was unable to grasp:
How come men can do the nasty with their shoes on (how do they take their pants off?), yet they never fail to take off their handwatches? #Quote by Gina Wings
One Thing quotes by Kirsty Eagar
#159. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's the wounded male ego. It's as though Hollywood thinks I've got some choice in whether I like him or not. As if. I can't change who I am. #Quote by Kirsty Eagar
One Thing quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#160. It is the Spirit of Christ in us that will draw satan's fire. The people of the world will not much care what we believe and they will stare vacantly at our religious forms, but there is one thing they will never forgive us-the presence of God's Spirit in our hearts. They may not know the cause of that strange feeling of antagonism which rises within them, but it will be nonetheless real and dangerous. satan will never cease to make war on the Man-child, and the soul in which dwells the Spirit of Christ will continue to be the target for his attacks. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
One Thing quotes by Robert Pinsky
#161. A reflection on Robert Lowell


Robert Lowell knew I was not one of his devotees. I attended his famous "office hours" salon only a few times. Life Studies was not a book of central importance for me, though I respected it. I admired his writing, but not the way many of my Boston friends did. Among poets in his generation, poems by Elizabeth Bishop, Alan Dugan, and Allen Ginsberg meant more to me than Lowell's. I think he probably sensed some of that.

To his credit, Lowell nevertheless was generous to me (as he was to many other young poets) just the same. In that generosity, and a kind of open, omnivorous curiosity, he was different from my dear teacher at Stanford, Yvor Winters. Like Lowell, Winters attracted followers - but Lowell seemed almost dismayed or a little bewildered by imitators; Winters seemed to want disciples: "Wintersians," they were called.

A few years before I met Lowell, when I was still in California, I read his review of Winters's Selected Poems. Lowell wrote that, for him, Winters's poetry passed A. E. Housman's test: he felt that if he recited it while he was shaving, he would cut himself. One thing Lowell and Winters shared, that I still revere in both of them, was a fiery devotion to the vocal essence of poetry: the work and interplay of sentences and lines, rhythm and pitch. The poetry in the sounds of the poetry, in a reader's voice: neither page nor stage.

Winters criticizing the violence of Lowell's #Quote by Robert Pinsky
One Thing quotes by Varaidzo

One Thing quotes by DMX
#163. One thing that people don't really understand is that as celebrity you rarely get fair treatment. You either get love or hate. It's never really fair. #Quote by DMX
One Thing quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#164. Discussing racism is not the same thing as discussing 'black identity'. Discussing racism is about discussing white identity. It's about white anxiety. It's about asking why whiteness has this reflexive need to define itself against immigrant bogey monsters in order to feel comfortable, safe and secure. Why am I saying one thing, and white people are hearing something completely different? #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
One Thing quotes by Tom Petty
#165. Rock n' roll was one thing, and then they chopped off the 'roll' and called it 'rock,' which became a sort of umbrella term for anything with a guitar in it. Like hair bands. How could we possibly believe that? It's just gotten downright silly, to the point where now it's sort of become like professional wrestling. #Quote by Tom Petty
One Thing quotes by Tao Lin
#166. pink hamster' recently criticized for not knowing what the word 'meta' means practicing a LOOKBOOK.nu pose titled 'Practicing A LOOKBOOK.nu Pose In Anticipation of a Rumored LOOKBOOK.nu for Hamsters' in anticipation of a rumored LOOKBOOK.nu for hamsters worried that LOOKBOOK.nu for hamsters will never be created and beginning to think (causing its eyes to unfocus slightly) of another way to show that it knows what the word 'meta' means and if maybe there's a way to incorporate all of this, as it is, without the existence of LOOKBOOK.nu for hamsters, into one thing that would show to its detractors that it definitely knows what the word 'meta' means #Quote by Tao Lin
One Thing quotes by David Foster Wallace
#167. It's actually not true that our literary culture is nihilistic, at least not in the radical sense of Turgenev's Bazarov. For there are certain tendencies we believe are bad, qualities we hate and fear. Among these are sentimentality, naivete, archaism, fanaticism. It would probably be better to call our own art's culture now one of congenital skepticism. Our intelligentsia distrust strong belief, open conviction. Material passion is one thing, but idealogical passion disgusts us on some deep level. We believe that ideology is now the province of the rival SIGs and PACs all trying to get their slice of the big green pie...and, looking around us, we see that indeed it is so. But Frank's Dostoevsky would point out (or more like hop up and down and shake his fist and fly at us and shout) that if this is so, it's at least partly because we have abandoned the field. That we've abandoned it to fundamentalists whose pitiless rigidity and eagerness to judge show that they're clueless about the "Christian values" they would impose on others. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
One Thing quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#168. Well," he begins, sitting up a bit taller, "I was being quite gallant, actually, and offered to help with her suitcase. And then we started talking and one thing led to another ... " Hadley grins. "And he's been carrying my suitcase ever since." "it's what any true gentleman would do," Oliver says with exaggerated modesty. "Especially the really gallant ones." The old woman seems pleased by this, her face folding into a map of tiny wrinkles. "And here you both are." Oliver smiles. "Here we are. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith
One Thing quotes by Paulo Coelho
#169. Fatima went back to her tent, and, when daylight came, she went out to do the chores she had done for years. But everything had changed. The boy was no longer at the oasis, and the oasis would never again have the same meaning it had had only yesterday. It would no longer be a place with fifty thousand palm trees and three hundred wells, where the pilgrims arrived, relieved at the end of their long journeys. From that day on, the oasis would be an empty place for her.
From that day on, it was the desert that would be important. She would look to it everyday, and would try to guess which star the boy was following in search of his treasure. She would have to send her kisses on the wind, hoping that the wind would touch the boy's face, and would tell him that she was alive. That she was waiting for him, a woman awaiting a courageous man in search of his treasure. From that day on, the desert would represent only one thing to her: the hope for his return. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
One Thing quotes by Sonny Rollins
#170. This is my dilemma. I'm a guy who makes things up as I go along, so nothing is ever finished - there are so many layers. So when you solo, yeah, you might get into one thing, but then, hey, everything has implications! You can hear the next level. And that's how I feel about improvising - there's always another level. #Quote by Sonny Rollins
One Thing quotes by Maxine Hong Kingston

One Thing quotes by William Goldman
#173. I think pain is the most underrated emotion available to us," the Count said. "The Serpent, to my
interpretation, was pain. Pain has been with us always, and it always irritates me when people say 'as
important as life and death' because the proper phrase, to my mind, should be, 'as important as pain and
death.'" The Count fell silent for a time then, as he began and completed a series of complex adjustments.
"One of my theories," he said somewhat later, "is that pain involves anticipation. Nothing original, I
admit, but I'm going to demonstrate to you what I mean: I will not, underline not, use the Machine on
you this evening. I could. It's ready and tested. But instead I will simply erect it and leave it beside you,
for you to stare at the next twenty-four hours, wondering just what it is and how it works and can it really
be as dreadful as all that." He tightened some things here, loosened some more over there, tugged and
patted and shaped.
The Machine looked so silly Westley was tempted to giggle. Instead, he groaned again.
"I'll leave you to your imagination, then," the Count said, and he looked at Westley. "But I want you to
know one thing before tomorrow night happens to you, and I mean it: you are the strongest, the most
brilliant and brave, the most altogether worthy creature it has ever been my privilege to meet, and I feel
almost sad that, for the purposes of my book and future pain scholars, I m #Quote by William Goldman
One Thing quotes by Ellen Bass
#174. Receiving feels wonderful once you get used to it. But first you must acknowledge how scary it is to be open. If, as a child you were left to fend for yourself or there were strings attached to getting what you needed, you learned that nurturing was either unavailable or unsafe. But now, receiving doesn't have to mean owing something back. Start asking for at least one thing you want every day. #Quote by Ellen Bass
One Thing quotes by Tom Petty
#175. I've learned one thing, and that's to quit worrying about stupid things. You have four years to be irresponsible here, relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember the time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Go out with your friends on a Tuesday when you have a paper due on Wednesday. Spend money you don't have. Drink 'til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does ... #Quote by Tom Petty
One Thing quotes by Joanna  Campbell
#176. The Bad-Moon Girls appear on days when Dad doesn't know what he is thinking, or even if he is thinking. Those days can weigh less than air or more than an ocean. He has blank thoughts without feelings, followed by heavy feelings without thoughts. Time means nothing. A minute ticks by in the same rhythm as an entire day. He can look at one thing for an hour without moving. He can see me or Victor without knowing we are in the room, peering at us as if we are underwater, moving in warped slow motion.

After the nothingness, he wades through a stagnant lake with the moon reflected in it, waiting for the daylight to rinse it away. He almost drowns while time ticks on. The sky is filled with black milk. No stars. Two days can pass before he surfaces.

Dad's brain-switch, the focusing thing the rest of us switch on to make things look better, is a bit buggered. Those are his words, not mine.

The Bad-Moon Girls whisper evil in Dad's ear, the sort of women who would set their own mother on fire if there were no other way to light their cigarettes. The trouble is, they can follow. Just as we were setting off to Clacton last autumn, they hunted him down. #Quote by Joanna Campbell
One Thing quotes by John Piper

One Thing quotes by Ali Banisadr
#179. Think about the way you go surfing on the Internet - you go from one thing to another. You can't really concentrate. I can't sit and read 10 pages on my computer. You'll read and then all of a sudden part of your brain is like, What about that? ... You're not reading the whole book. You're reading fragments. Even though I think it's bad, I think it's interesting too, because that's the way my brain works. #Quote by Ali Banisadr
One Thing quotes by Parul Tyagi
#180. Life will be so monotonous if I was looking for someone just like me. It's so much better to have that one person in life who is so different from you that you in fact love him (or her). Know that living together will call for tremendous adjustments but they are just adjustments and not issues unless you make them. And trust me, you cannot waste your time in trying to make a list of things that you ought to know before you start living together Because matrimony is a 24 hour game. There will definitely be that ONE thing you will know only when its time comes! #Quote by Parul Tyagi
One Thing quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#181. For the sacrificed, in the hour of sacrifice, only one thing counts: faith-alone among enemies and skeptics. Faith, in spite of the humiliation which is both the necessary precondition and the consequence of faith, faith without any hope of compensation other than he can find in a faith which reality seems so thoroughly to refute. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
One Thing quotes by Rajneesh
#182. Doing brings ego. Ego is the shadow of action. And there is only one thing that is not doing and that is awareness, watchfulness. The only thing that is not part of the world of action is pure awareness. No shadow is created by pure awareness. It is so pure that light can pass through it - it is transparent and no shadow is created. #Quote by Rajneesh
One Thing quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#183. I am a mess. Like that MargieMocha, I am spilled across a floor, but there's nobody to mop me up. I have only one thing to show for the day: Perry Delloplane. The sound of a name. It is a grape in my mouth. I roll it over and over on my tongue

One Thing quotes by Caryll Houselander
#185. Every ordinary thing in your life is a word of God's love: your home, your work, the clothes you wear, the air you breathe, the food you eat ... the flowers under your feet are the courtesy of God's heart flung down on You! All these things say one thing only: "See how I love you." #Quote by Caryll Houselander
One Thing quotes by Greg L. Hawkins
#186. Nothing has a greater impact on spiritual growth than reflection on Scripture. If churches could do only one thing to help people at all levels of spiritual maturity grow in their relationship with Christ, their choice is clear. They would inspire, encourage, and equip their people to read the Bible - specifically, to reflect on Scripture for meaning in their lives. The numbers say most churches are missing the mark - because only one out of five congregants reflects on Scripture every day. #Quote by Greg L. Hawkins
One Thing quotes by Tony Robbins
#187. We're all going to face extreme stress in our lives, there's no one who is going to escape that. That's the one thing, rich or poor, I don't care who you are, you're going to lose. #Quote by Tony Robbins
One Thing quotes by Oghenovo Obrimah
#188. There is a time for everything. There is a time for a leader to allow those over whom he has authority to demonstrate what they are about and their capabilities. There also is a time for a leader to utilize knowledge garnered while silent to bring about stability in interpersonal relationships within the context of the achievement of organizational goals or institutional objectives. #Quote by Oghenovo Obrimah

One Thing quotes by Wendy Plump
#191. When you start to get bored with your misery, you are on the first rung of recovery and you are beginning to climb back up. You add one thing at a time back into your life just as a break from monotony. Instead of feeling wretched, I will start reading again. Instead of feeling wretched, I will start working out again. I will start answering the phone. I will consider the city. I will think about coffee with friends. You start putting in the pieces until eventually what you have is an actual life. #Quote by Wendy Plump
One Thing quotes by Vincent D'Onofrio

One Thing quotes by Gary Paulsen
#193. All right, he thought, take one thing at a time. Just one thing.
I poked my leg with an arrow.
There. Good. I pulled the arrow out. My leg still works. It must not have been a broadhead because it didn't go in very deep. Good.
My tent collapsed. There. Another thing. I'm in a tent and it collapsed. I just have to find the front zipper and get out and climb up the bank. Easy now, easy.
Something hit me on the head. What? Something big that thunked. The canoe. The wind picked up the canoe and it hit me. #Quote by Gary Paulsen
One Thing quotes by Herta Muller
#194. Silence is also a form of speaking. They're exactly alike. It's a basic component of language. We're always selecting what we say and what we don't. Why do we say one thing and not the other? And we do this instinctively, too, because no matter what we're talking about, there's more that doesn't get said than does. And this isn't always to hide things - it's simply part of an instinctive selection in our speech. This selection varies from one person to the next, so that no matter how many people describe the same thing, the descriptions are different, the point of view is different. And even if there is a similar viewpoint, people make different choices as to what is said or not said. This was very clear to me, coming from the village, since the people there never said more than they absolutely needed to. When I was fifteen and went to the city, I was amazed at how much people talked and how much of that talk was pointless. And how much people talked about themselves - that was totally alien to me.
For me, silence had always been another form of communication. After all, you can tell so much just by looking at a person. At home we always knew about each other even if we didn't talk about ourselves all the time. I encountered a lot of silence elsewhere as well. There was the silence that was self-imposed, because you could never say what you really thought. #Quote by Herta Muller
One Thing quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#195. All the different nations in the world, despite their differences of appearance and religion and language and way of life, still have one thing in common, and that is what's inside of all of us. If we X-rayed the insides of different human beings, we wouldn't be able to tell from those X-rays what the person's language or background or race is. #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
One Thing quotes by Julie March

One Thing quotes by Terry Crews
#199. I enjoy sports movies that don't sugarcoat. One thing that irritates me about sports movies is that they're like, 'The magic of the ball,' and 'The magic of the stadium.' It ain't that magical. When you get hit coming across the middle at 25 miles per hour, the magic's over. #Quote by Terry Crews
One Thing quotes by Sarah Gailey
#200. I didn't mean to kill Josh Harper.

One Thing quotes by Nikki Sixx
#203. You have to age gracefully. And that's what I love about Keith Richards. That's what I love about the Rolling Stones. They are aging gracefully. They are falling apart at the seams right before our eyes, and they are doing it gracefully. And that's the most beautiful thing that we can do. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
One Thing quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#204. The void? I'd asked," crestfallen.

One Thing quotes by Marcus Gray
#205. When it comes to people we admire, it is in our nature to be selective with information, to load with personal associations, to elevate and make heroic. That is especially true after their deaths, especially if those deaths have been in any way untimely and/or shocking. It is hard to hold onto the real people, the true story. When we think of the Clash, we tend to forget or overlook the embarrassing moments, the mistakes, the musical filler, the petty squabbles, the squalid escapades, the unfulfilled promises. Instead, we take only selected highlights from the archive-the best songs, the most flatteringly-posed photographs, the most passionate live footage, the most stirring video clips, the sexiest slogans, the snappiest soundbites, the warmest personal memories-and from them we construct a near-perfect rock 'n' roll band, a Hollywood version of the real thing. The Clash have provided us with not just a soundtrack, but also a stock of images from which to create a movie we can run in our own heads. The exact content of the movie might differ from person to person and country to country, but certain key elements will remain much the same; and it is those elements that will make up the Essential Clash of folk memory. This book might have set out to take the movie apart scene by scene to analyse how it was put together; but this book also believes the movie is a masterpiece, and has no intention of spoiling the ending. It's time to freeze the frame. At the very moment they step #Quote by Marcus Gray

One Thing quotes by Michelle Cuevas
#211. You rarely know, in the moment, when it's the last time you'll do something. Most of the time, the whole thing just sneaks away in the night, never to be seen or heard from again, not even sending back so much as a postcard to say hello. #Quote by Michelle Cuevas

Of course, yeah, it would be easy to say it was Zack. But that's not it, is it?
Before Zack.
Before Ryan. Before Max and Derrick or that whole thing with the wallet.
Before Ashley.
Before tenth grade even began.

One Thing quotes by Xi Chuan
#213. Many people pretend to be in thought, proving thought to be a beautiful thing.
But the bald man doesn't need a comb, the tiger doesn't need weapons, the fool doesn't need thought. The person with no needs is practically a sage, but the sage also needs to count the rivers across the iron bridge to pass the time. This is the difference between the sage and the fool. #Quote by Xi Chuan

#215. The thing that drives me crazy is when comics say 'I have low self-esteem.' No you don't. You're standing on stage asking people to pay. You don't play an instrument. You want people to pay to hear what's in your mind. You don't have low self-esteem. You might have other problems. #Quote by Colin Quinn

One Thing quotes by Tim Walker
#218. When I was at college, the idea of fashion was more immediate to me, whereas art photography, the depth of it, was a different thing. Storytelling - fanciful storytelling - can only be told through fashion photography. It's the perfect way to play with fantasy and dreams. #Quote by Tim Walker
One Thing quotes by Edward Said
#219. By humanism I mean first of all attempting to dissolve Blake's mind-forg'd manacles so as to be able to use one's mind historically and rationally for the purposes of reflective understanding and genuine disclosure. Moreover, humanism is sustained by a sense of community with other interpreters and other societies and periods: strictly speaking, therefore, there is no such thing as an isolated humanist. #Quote by Edward Said

One Thing quotes by Sonya Mukherjee
#222. I'd imagined that just because he was so good-looking, he must be extra good inside too. See, that's the thing about our species. We can kind of tell the difference between looks and personality, but only kind of. We're always getting the two things mixed up in our heads, even when we know better. #Quote by Sonya Mukherjee
One Thing quotes by Nicole Peeler
#223. The thing is, Iris, I've never liked the idea of compromise. In films and in stories people who love each other - really love each other - make horrendous sacrifices. They give kidneys they move across the world they die. Or become the undead because you know I like that sort of book. Basically the heroine's lover calls and she answers. Which is stupid. You know why "
Iris shook her head.

One Thing quotes by David Lynch
#224. When you finish anything, people want you to then talk about it. And I think it's almost like a crime. A film or a painting – each thing is its own sort of language and it's not right to try to say the same thing in words. The words are not there. The language of film, cinema, is the language it was put into, and the English language – it's not going to translate. It's going to lose. #Quote by David Lynch

One Thing quotes by Krystal Sutherland
#232. Love doesn't need to last a lifetime for it to be real. You can't judge the quality of a love by the length of time it lasts. Everything dies, love included. Sometimes it dies with a person, sometimes it dies on its own. The greatest love story ever told doesn't have to be about two people who spent their whole lives together. It might be about a love that lasted two weeks or two months or two years, but burned brighter and hotter and more brilliantly than any other love before or after. Don't mourn a failed love; there is no such thing. All love is equal in the brain. #Quote by Krystal Sutherland

One Thing quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#234. Truth is like the moon in the sky. Words are like a finger. A finger can point to the moon's location, but it is not the moon. To see the moon, you must look past the finger. To look for the truth in books, the Sixth Patriarch was saying, is like mistaking the finger for the moon. The moon and the finger are not the same thing.

One Thing quotes by Lara Vapnyar
#238. Brighton Beach does not look, smell, or sound like Russia. It's a parody of Russia at best, something as different from the real thing as a picture of the Eiffel Tower. Yes, they sell Russian food on Brighton Beach, and Russian books and videos, and Russian clothes, and there are Russian restaurants and Russian nightclubs, and everybody speaks Russian, but the Russianness of the place is so concentrated that it feels ridiculously exaggerated. Everything Russian on Brighton Beach is too Russian, far more Russian than in real Russia. This is what happens all over Brooklyn. From the Scandinavians of Bay Ridge to the Chinese of Sunset Park, Brooklyn's immigrants go to ridiculous extremes to re-create their homelands only to end up with a vulgar pastiche. #Quote by Lara Vapnyar
