Pawn Shops quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#1. You might be a redneck if your primary source of income is the pawn shop. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Pawn Shops quotes by Alex Shvartsman
#2. Instead of finishing the sentence she slid a business card across the counter. It listed her contact information for every social media site I'd heard of, and several that were still in beta. Except for Google Plus. Even Internet-addicted fairies have standards. #Quote by Alex Shvartsman
Pawn Shops quotes by Steven Rattner
#3. Eye-popping tales of growing income inequality are hardly new. By now, nearly every American must be painfully aware of the widening pay gap between top executives and shop floor laborers; between 'Master of the Universe' financiers and pretty much everyone else. #Quote by Steven Rattner
Pawn Shops quotes by Carrot Top
#4. I love to shop, especially in retro stores. I have about a million pairs of old-school sports shoes like Adidas, so that's probably my biggest vice. #Quote by Carrot Top
Pawn Shops quotes by Volker G. Fremuth
#5. We are merely a pawn in a chess game played by the nations of the world. Should we not be a bigger, more important piece in the game? Are we not all capable of playing the part of the king or queen? #Quote by Volker G. Fremuth
Pawn Shops quotes by Holly Black
#6. One of the windows was open, she noticed, curtain fluttering. The party must have gotten too warm, everyone sweating in the small house and yearning for the cool breeze just outside. Then, once the window was open, it would have been easy to forget to close it. There was still the garlic, after all, still the holy water on the lintels. Things like this happened in Europe, in places like Belgium, where the streets teemed with vampires and the shops didn't open until after dark. Not here. Not in Tana's town, where there hadn't been a single attack in more than five years.
And yet it had happened. A window had been left open to the night, and a vampire had crawled through. #Quote by Holly Black
Pawn Shops quotes by Jason Mraz
#7. If you're a new artist, practice your art and share it. Set up shop somewhere, whether it's a street corner or a coffee shop. I got my start in a coffee shop that didn't even have live music. I wanted to play in coffee shops that did have live music, but I didn't have an audience. #Quote by Jason Mraz
Pawn Shops quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#8. When I lay down on my deathbed, I want to know that I have done all I could to be a first rate human, not a third rate pawn of the gods. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Pawn Shops quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#9. So far as he could prevent it, Dickens never permitted a day of his life to be ordinary. There was always some prank, some impetuous proposal, some practical joke, some sudden hospitality, some sudden disappearance. It is related of him (I give one anecdote out of a hundred) that in his last visit to America, when he was already reeling as it were under the blow that was to be mortal, he remarked quite casually to his companions that a row of painted cottages looked exactly like the painted shops in a pantomime. No sooner had the suggestion passed his lips than he leapt at the nearest doorway and in exact imitation of the clown in the harlequinade, beat conscientiously with his fist, not on the door (for that would have burst the canvas scenery of course), but on the side of the doorpost. Having done this he lay down ceremoniously across the doorstep for the owner to fall over him if he should come rushing out. He then got up gravely and went on his way. His whole life was full of such unexpected energies, precisely like those of the pantomime clown. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Pawn Shops quotes by Misty Copeland
#10. I think I'm pretty laid back. I like cooking, being at home, and going to concerts. And I love to shop! #Quote by Misty Copeland
Pawn Shops quotes by Mary McCarthy
#11. The famous Florentine elegance, which attracts tourists to the shops on Via Tornabuoni and Via della Vigna Nuova, is characterized by austerity of line, simplicity, economy of effect. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Pawn Shops quotes by Candace Bushnell
#12. I actually don't shop very much. I have a tendency to rotate a few pairs of ripped jeans and an old cashmere sweater. #Quote by Candace Bushnell
Pawn Shops quotes by Aron Nimzowitsch
#13. The passed Pawn is a criminal, who should be kept under lock and key. Mild measures, such as police surveillance, are not sufficient #Quote by Aron Nimzowitsch
Pawn Shops quotes by Dana Stabenow
#14. Cops never took anything on faith, and disbelieved every story that was told them on principle until and unless they could confirm that the story was fact in all its essentials, and even then remained wary and unconvinced. Cop shops bred skeptics. Skeptics cherished few illusions about human nature, and therefore were seldom disappointed. #Quote by Dana Stabenow
Pawn Shops quotes by Jamie McMurray
#15. It was really special for Bass Pro Shops to take Tracker off the side and put Joplin, Missouri on there. They have helped me a lot this past week with putting together ways to raise money to help rebuild Joplin. It's my hometown. It was heartbreaking to see the tornado and see all the people that lost their homes and the ones that lost their lives. It is really special that Johnny let us put that on there. Hopefully we made some people proud tonight. #Quote by Jamie McMurray
Pawn Shops quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#16. I don't just use yarn from a store. I buy old sweaters from consignment shops. The older the better, and unravel them. There are countries of women in this scarf/shawl/blanket. Soon it will be big enough to keep me warm. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Pawn Shops quotes by Bill Vaughan
#17. How men hate waiting while their wives shop for clothes and trinkets; how women hate waiting, often for much of their lives, while their husbands shop for fame and glory. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Pawn Shops quotes by Lianne La Havas
#18. I love vintage and I shop vintage a lot because it's just such great value for money. #Quote by Lianne La Havas
Pawn Shops quotes by George MacDonald
#19. Common people, whether lords or shop-keepers, are slow to understand that possession, whether in the shape of birth or lands or money or intellect, is a small affair in the difference between men. #Quote by George MacDonald
Pawn Shops quotes by Virginia Woolf
#20. One might fancy that day, the London day, was just beginning. Like a woman who had slipped off her print dress and white apron to array herself in blue and pearls, the day changed, put off stuff, took gauze, changed to evening, and with the same sigh of exhilaration that a woman breathes, tumbling petticoats on the floor, it too shed dust, heat, colour; the traffic thinned; motor cars, tinkling, darting, succeeded the lumber of vans; and here and there among the thick foliage of the squares an intense light hung. I resign, the evening seemed to say, as it paled and faded above the battlements and prominences, moulded, pointed, of hotel, flat, and block of shops, I fade, she was beginning. I disappear, but London would have none of it, and rushed her bayonets into the sky, pinioned her, constrained her to partnership in her revelry. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Pawn Shops quotes by Don DeLillo
#21. The students tend to stick close to campus. There is nothing for them to do in Blacksmith proper, no natural haunt or attraction. They have their own food, movies, music, theater, sports, conversation and sex. This is a town of dry cleaning shops and opticians. Photos of looming Victorian homes decorate the windows of real estate firms. These pictures have not changed in years. The homes are sold or gone or stand in other towns in other states. This is a town of tag sales and yard sales, the failed possessions arrayed in driveways and tended by kids. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Pawn Shops quotes by K. Johnson-Bair
#22. This luxury of mind began with a RECORD. #Quote by K. Johnson-Bair
Pawn Shops quotes by Henny Youngman
#23. My wife loves to shop at Bloomingdale's. I bring her mail there twice a week. #Quote by Henny Youngman
Pawn Shops quotes by Terry Pratchett
#24. I believe everyone should have a good death. You know, with your grandchildren around you, a bit of sobbing. Because after all, tears are appropriate on a death bed. And you say goodbye to your loved ones, making certain that one of them has been left behind to look after the shop. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Pawn Shops quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#25. I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least - and it is commonly more than that - sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements. You may safely say, A penny for your thoughts, or a thousand pounds. When sometimes I am reminded that the mechanics and shopkeepers stay in their shops not only all the forenoon, but all the afternoon too, sitting with crossed legs, so many of them - as if the legs were made to sit upon, and not to stand or walk upon - I think that they deserve some credit for not having all committed suicide long ago. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Pawn Shops quotes by Aasif Mandvi
#26. We are Muslims. My father would pawn off his Muslim in-laws as Hindus just so that he could get free pancakes. #Quote by Aasif Mandvi
Pawn Shops quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#27. In Rome there is a pathological shortage of small coins. For change, the little shops tend to use candy. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Pawn Shops quotes by Matthew McConaughey
#28. The male is always the pawn in a romantic comedy. Come together, break up, go chase her, get her, roll credits. That's what happens in all of them. #Quote by Matthew McConaughey
Pawn Shops quotes by Patti Smith
#29. The city was a real city, shifty and sexual. I was lightly jostled by small herds of flushed young sailors looking for action on Forty-Second Street, with it rows of x-rated movie houses, brassy women, glittering souvenir shops, and hot-dog vendors. I wandered through Kino parlors and peered through the windows of the magnificent sprawling Grant's Raw Bar filled with men in black coats scooping up piles of fresh oysters. The skyscrapers were beautiful. They did not seem like mere corporate shells. They were monuments to the arrogant yet philanthropic spirit of America. The character of each quadrant was invigorating and one felt the flux of its history. The old world and the emerging one served up in the brick and mortar of the artisan and the architects. I walked for hours from park to park. In Washington Square, one could still feel the characters of Henry James and the presence of the author himself … This open atmosphere was something I had not experienced, simple freedom that did not seem oppressive to anyone. #Quote by Patti Smith
Pawn Shops quotes by Maureen F. McHugh
#30. The Second Koran tells us that the darkness in ourselves is a sinister thing. It waits until we relax, it waits until we reach the most vulnerable moments, and then it snares us. I want to be dutiful. I want to do what I should. But when I go back to the tube, I think of where I am going; to that small house and my empty room. What will I do tonight? Make more paper flowers, more wreaths? I am sick of them. Sick of the Nekropolis.

I can take the tube to my mistress' house, or I can go by the street where Mardin's house is. I'm tired. I'm ready to go to my little room and relax. Oh, Holy One, I dread the empty evening. Maybe I should go by the street just to fill up time. I have all this empty time in front of me. Tonight and tomorrow and the week after and the next month and all down through the years as I never marry and become a dried-up woman. Evenings spent folding paper. Days cleaning someone else's house. Free afternoons spent shopping a bit, stopping in tea shops because my feet hurt. That is what lives are, aren't they? Attempts to fill our time with activity designed to prevent us from realizing that there is no meaning? #Quote by Maureen F. McHugh
Pawn Shops quotes by Joe Thompson
#31. It's a small town; everybody eats in the same cafe; everybody gets their hair cut in the same barber shop. That kind of community building, I think, begins to bridge those gaps. #Quote by Joe Thompson
Pawn Shops quotes by Tessa Dare
#32. Can I interest you in a tour of the shops?"
"Shops? I only see one."
"Well, yes. There is only one. But it's all we have need of, you see. Bright's All Things shops has everything a young lady could wish to buy."
Mrs. Highwood surveyed the street. "Where is the doctor? Diana must have a doctor nearby at all times, to bleed her when she has her attacks."
Susanna winced. No wonder Diana's health never fully returned. Such a useless, horrific practice, bleeding. A "remedy" more likely to drain life than preserve it, and one Susanna had barely survived herself. Out of habit, she adjusted her long, elbow-length gloves. Their seams chafed against the well-healed scars beneath.
"There is a surgeon next town over," she said. A surgeon she wouldn't allow near cattle, much less a young lady. "Here in the village, we have a very capable apothecary." She hoped the woman would not ask for specifics there. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Pawn Shops quotes by Bonnie Tyler
#33. I went to all the shops in the village looking for work. I didn't have any qualifications. I ended up working in a grocery shop for about a year and then went to a confectioner, where I earned three pounds 10 shillings. I gave the money to my mother and father, but I also managed to save five shillings a week. #Quote by Bonnie Tyler
Pawn Shops quotes by Megan Rich
#34. The faces of the people were wrinkled with change. Sudden change to which the skin can't possibly conform, faster than the aging of man, faster, even, than their wildest dreams. It stretched their skin thin, as did their bulging bellies, their newfound love of doughnuts, hamburgers, milk and cheese. What was once a once-a-year privilege could now be bought in twelve shops on the same street. #Quote by Megan Rich
Pawn Shops quotes by Kate Smith
#35. Every small town has its dramatic group, its barber-shop quartet, every home has music in one form or another. #Quote by Kate Smith
Pawn Shops quotes by Frantz Fanon
#36. In order to assimilate the culture of the oppressor and venture into his fold, the colonized subject has to pawn some of his own intellectual possessions. For instance, one of the things he has had to assimilate is the way the colonialist bourgeoisie thinks. This is apparent in the colonized intellectual's inaptitude to engage in dialogue. For he is unable to make himself inessential when confronted with a purpose or idea. On the other hand, when he operates among the people he is constantly awestruck. He is literally disarmed by their good faith and integrity. He is then constantly at risk of becoming a demagogue. He turns into a kind of mimic man who nods his assent to every word by the people, transformed by him into an arbiter of truth. But the fellah, the unemployed and the starving do not lay claim to truth. They do not say they represent the truth because they are the truth in their very being.

During this period the intellectual behaves objectively like a vulgar opportunist. His maneuvering, in fact, is still at work. The people would never think of rejecting him or cutting the ground from under his feet. What the people want is for everything to be pooled together. The colonized intellectual's insertion into this human tide will find itself on hold because of his curious obsession with detail. It is not that the people are opposed to analysis. They appreciate clarification, understand the reasoning behind an argument, and like to see where they are going. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Pawn Shops quotes by Mark Lawrence
#37. When they killed him, Mother wouldn't hold her peace, so they slit her throat. I was stupid then, being only nine, and I fought to save them both. But the thorns held me tight. I've learned to appreciate thorns since. The thorns taught me the game. They let me understand what all those grim and serious men who've fought the Hundred War have yet to learn. You can only win the game when you understand that it IS a game. Let a man play chess, and tell him that every pawn is his friend. Let him think both bishops holy. Let him remember happy days in the shadows of his castles. Let him love his queen. Watch him loose them all. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Pawn Shops quotes by Michele Borba
#38. When you look in that mirror, do you see a person who uses your kids as a pawn in your quarrels with your partner? Do you try to get your kids to take sides, confide in them about adult issues, or manipulate them in your own domestic war? Ring any bells? If so, think how it is damaging your child. What will you do to change? #Quote by Michele Borba
Pawn Shops quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#39. Runners are bouncing up and down at the curb waiting for lights to change. Cops are in coffee shops dealing with bagel deficiencies. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Pawn Shops quotes by Joan Miro
#40. Never, never do I set to work on a canvas in the state it comes in from the shop. I provoke accidents - a form, a splotch of color. Any accident is good enough. I let the matiere decide. Then I prepare a ground by, for example, wiping my brushes on the canvas. Letting fall some drops of turpentine on it would do just as well. If I want to make a drawing I crumple the sheet of paper or I wet it; the flowing water traces a line and this line may suggest what is to come next. #Quote by Joan Miro
Pawn Shops quotes by Kevin Henkes
#41. I usually do my writing in a very nice room, my studio, which is in the attic of our house in Wisconsin. But the nice thing about writing is that I can do it in many places. So sometimes I'll write in coffee shops. #Quote by Kevin Henkes
Pawn Shops quotes by King Tuff
#42. My friends ask me what it's like moving from Vermont to L.A., but no matter where I am, I pretty much just end up sitting in coffee shops, thinking about songs. #Quote by King Tuff
Pawn Shops quotes by Christie Hefner
#43. Playboy strategically selected the Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas to debut our first U.S. store because it is one of the most successful retail shopping destinations in the world. It is clear that Playboy and Las Vegas are a powerful match, presenting the chance for consumers and visitors to experience all of the glamour, sexiness, style and fun associated with both. #Quote by Christie Hefner
Pawn Shops quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#44. Immigrants do more than help us win our wars, or set up cleaning shops or ethnic restaurants. #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
