Periods quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#1. Fathers, yours is an eternal calling from which you are never released. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Periods quotes by Gary Larson
#2. Humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time in human history, largely to meet rapidly growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fiber and fuel. This has resulted in a substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth. #Quote by Gary Larson
Periods quotes by Robert Fulghum
#3. Water is everywhere and in all living things; we cannot be seperated from water. No water, no life. Period. Water comes in many forms - liquid, vapor, ice, snow, fog, rain, hail. But no matter the form, it's still water. #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Periods quotes by Glen Hansard
#4. Certain songs have a life, and certain songs don't. A song is like a saddle: you ride it for a while, and if it's the right kind of song you can sing it for the rest of your life. And then other songs are only really important for certain periods of your life, and you move on from them and find yourself not necessarily needing to sing them anymore. #Quote by Glen Hansard
Periods quotes by Samantha Harvey
#5. Common perceptions of female friendships are morning coffees discussing children, bags, periods and agreeing about the misdemeanours of men ... mild, soft, nurturing relationships. #Quote by Samantha Harvey
Periods quotes by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
#6. The Girl of the Period, sauntering before one down Broadway, is one panorama of awful surprises from top to toe. Her clothes characterize her. She never characterizes her clothes. She is upholstered, not ornamented. She is bundled, not draped. She is puckered, not folded. She struts, she does not sweep. She has not one of the attributes of nature nor of proper art. She neither soothes the eye like a flower, nor pleases it like a picture. She wearies it like a kaleidoscope. She is a meaningless dazzle of broken effects. #Quote by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
Periods quotes by Earl Nightingale
#7. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

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

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

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

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Periods quotes by William Clay Ford, Jr.
#8. One cannot find a healthy economy anywhere in the world that does not have a strong industrial base, period. #Quote by William Clay Ford, Jr.
Periods quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#9. Premenstrual Syndrome: Just before their periods women behave the way men do all the time. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Periods quotes by Ian Mortimer
#10. W. H. Auden once suggested that to understand your own country you need to have lived in at least two others. One can say something similar for periods of time: to understand your own century you need to have come to terms with at least two others. The key to learning something about the past might be a ruin or an archive but the means whereby we may understand it is
and always will be
ourselves. #Quote by Ian Mortimer
Periods quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#11. Adolescence is not only an important period in life, but that it is the only period where one may speak of life in the full sense of the word. The attractile drives are unleashed around the age of thirteen, after which they gradually diminish, or rather they are resolved in models of behaviour which are, after all, only constrained forces. The violence of the initial explosion means that the outcome of the conflict may remain uncertain for years; this is what is called a transitory regime in electrodynamics. But little by little the oscillations become slower, to the point of resolving themselves in mild and melancholic long waves; from this moment on all is decided, and life is nothing more than a preparation for death. This can be expressed in a more brutal and less exact way by saying that man is a diminished adolescent. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Periods quotes by Joan Didion
#12. We were that generation called silent, but we were silent neither, as some thought, because we shared the period's official optimism nor, as others thought, because we feared its official repression. We were silent because the exhilaration of social action seemed to many of us just one more way of escaping the personal, of masking for a while that dread of the meaningless which was man's fate. #Quote by Joan Didion
Periods quotes by Leo Ornstein
#13. I think there have been some periods when the writing almost became a bit of a burden. #Quote by Leo Ornstein
Periods quotes by Tony Benn
#14. In developing our industrial strategy for the period ahead, we have the benefit of much experience. Almost everything has been tried at least once #Quote by Tony Benn
Periods quotes by Craig Keener
#15. ...the early church fathers provide abundant evidence that gifts such as prophecy and miracles continued in their own time, even if not as abundantly as in the first century. Christians in the medieval and modern periods continued to embrace these activities of the Spirit. It is, in fact, cessationism that is not well documented in earlier history; it seems no coincidence that it arose only in a culture dominated by anti-supernaturalism. #Quote by Craig Keener
Periods quotes by Pat Robertson
#16. Never place a comma where God has placed a period. God has spoken! #Quote by Pat Robertson
Periods quotes by Washington Irving
#17. It was his belief, furthermore, that this religion, so elevated and simple, had repeatedly been corrupted and debased by man, and especially outraged by idolatry; wherefore a succession of prophets, each inspired by a revelation from the Most High, had been sent from time to time, and at distant periods, to restore it to its original purity. Such was Noah, such was Abraham, such was Moses, and such was Jesus Christ. By each of these, the true religion had been reinstated upon earth, but had again been vitiated by their followers. The faith, as taught and practiced by Abraham when he came out of the land of Chaldea, seems especially to have formed a religious standard in his mind, from his veneration for the patriarch as the father of Ishmael, the progenitor of his race. #Quote by Washington Irving
Periods quotes by Daniel Kehlmann
#18. One of the points where the art world is at its most metaphysical is in this weird aspect of the power of the expert. There are experts who claim they cannot be fooled because they have an inner connection to an artist and can feel whether something is genuine or fake. I've heard experts say, on panels: When it comes to my period, or my painters, I cannot be fooled. And of course that's completely ridiculous. #Quote by Daniel Kehlmann
Periods quotes by Graham Hawkes
#19. There's something just magical about flight. Period. #Quote by Graham Hawkes
Periods quotes by Steven Johnson
#20. How could so many intelligent people be so grievously wrong for such an extended period of time? How could they ignore so much overwhelming evidence that contradicted their most basic theories? These questions, too, deserve their own discipline: the sociology of error. #Quote by Steven Johnson
Periods quotes by Yukio Mishima
#21. The period of childhood is a stage on which time and space become entangled. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Periods quotes by Michael Jackson
#22. Because I think every child star suffers through this period because you're not the cute and charming child that you were. You start to grow, and they want to keep you little forever. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Periods quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#23. These races came to distinguish ever more minute periods of duration, and at the same time to extend their temporal grasp so as to apprehend ever longer periods as "now. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Periods quotes by Anonymous
#24. May you always follow your dreams. The path will never be easy and you might have to chase them for years. There will be obstacles to overcome and criticisms to ignore. There will be periods of doubt and moments of insecurity. But you will reach them. And when you finally touch those dreams, No matter how old you are or where life has taken you, Hold on tight - savor that feeling of accomplishment - and never let go. Ever. #Quote by Anonymous
Periods quotes by Milton Friedman
#25. You had a flood of immigrants, millions of them, coming to this country. What brought them here? It was the hope for a better life for them and their children. And, in the main, they succeeded. It is hard to find any century in history, in which so large a number of people experience so great an improvement in the conditions of their life, in the opportunities open to them, as in the period of the 19th and early 20th century. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Periods quotes by James Ellroy
#26. I don't have a cellphone or a computer. I deliberately circumscribe my mental life within the periods that I write about, and the power of Perfidia is that it's the result of complete immersion. I was there for the two years that it took me to write that book. #Quote by James Ellroy
Periods quotes by Emily Susan Rapp
#27. I don't believe in God, but I do believe in that chaotic reality, and also this: that none of us knows anything about anything. Period. #Quote by Emily Susan Rapp
Periods quotes by Scott Bakula
#28. When you get into any kind of period work, or any kind of prosthetic work, or anything that alters what your 8x10 looks like, it's the joy of escaping and becoming somebody else. And it is definitely freeing. #Quote by Scott Bakula
Periods quotes by John Chamberlain
#29. Thus a new way of finding fluidity will inevitably be imposed on management and labor alike. The profit-sharing, or "progress" sharing union contract is the only possible way of satisfying labor and the consumer without saddling industry with fixed costs that in depression periods can kill off marginal companies like flies. #Quote by John Chamberlain
Periods quotes by Michael Crichton
#30. It is especially difficult for modern people to conceive that our modern, scientific age might not be an improvement over the prescientific period. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Periods quotes by Daniel J. Siegel
#31. Each of us needs periods in which our minds can focus inwardly. Solitude is an essential experience for the mind to organize its own processes and create an internal state of resonance. In such a state, the self is able to alter its constraints by directly reducing the input from interactions with others. (p. 235) #Quote by Daniel J. Siegel
Periods quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#32. Power is always personal: any study of a Western democratic leader today reveals that, even in a transparent system with its short periods in office, personalities shape administrations. Democratic leaders often rule through trusted retainers instead of official ministers. In any court, power is as fluid as human personality. #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Periods quotes by Jean Cocteau
#33. We are in a period of such individualism that one no longer speaks of disciples; one speaks of thieves. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Periods quotes by J.C. Wickhart
#34. I always seek tranquility, but what would I do if I happened to acquire such composure? I suppose that the boredom from lack of the absurd would expand to such a great weight, I would have to run amuck and shatter it, for my own twisted freedom. Why step out of the ordinary? People have been known to go insane when faced with unfamiliar conditions for extended periods of time. So who is to say it can't go vice versa? Release the madness, release the demons. Chin high, spine erect, fists clinched, feet firm, balls out. Claim the moment, but disregard the aftermath. #Quote by J.C. Wickhart
Periods quotes by Mario Testino
#35. I like getting my ideas from the things of now. I am very conscious of the moment, of images that belong to this moment instead of another period. Fashion is really a reflection of our lives. You see women today and they don't do their hair up; they all wear their hair undone. So you have to reflect that in your photography . #Quote by Mario Testino
Periods quotes by David Foster Wallace
#36. [Stice's] parents had met and fallen in love in a Country/Western bar in Partridge KS - just outside Liberal KS on the Oklahoma border - met and fallen in star-crossed love in a bar playing this popular Kansas C/W-bar-game where they put their bare forearms together and laid a lit cigarette in the little valley between the two forearms' flesh and kept it there till one of them finally jerked their arm away and reeled away holding their arm. Mr. and Mrs. Stice each discovered somebody else that wouldn't jerk away and reel away, Stice explained. Their forearms were still to this day covered with little white slugs of burn-scar. They'd toppled like pines for each other from the git-go, Stice explained. They'd been divorced and remarried four or five times, depending on how you defined certain jurisprudential precepts. When they were on good domestic terms they stayed in their bedroom for days of squeaking springs with the door locked except for brief sallies out for Beefeater gin and Chinese take-out in little white cardboard pails with wire handles, with the Stice children wandering ghostlike through the clapboard house in sagging diapers or woolen underwear subsisting on potato chips out of econobags bigger than most of them were, the Stice kids. The kids did somewhat physically better during periods of nuptial strife, when a stony-faced Mr. Stice slammed the kitchen door and went off daily to sell crop insurance while Mrs. Stice - whom both Mr. Stice and The Darkness cal #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Periods quotes by Lin Yutang
#37. There are no books in this world that everybody must read, but only books that a person must read at a certain time in a given place under given circumstances and at a given period of his life. #Quote by Lin Yutang
Periods quotes by Alfred Lansing
#38. There were the sounds of the pack in movement - the basic noises, the grunting and whining of the floes, along with an occasional thud as a heavy block collapsed. But in addition, the pack under compression seemed to have an almost limitless repertoire of sounds, many of which seemed strangely unrelated to the noise of ice undergoing pressure. Sometimes there was a sound like a gigantic train with squeaky axles being shunted roughly about with a great deal of bumping and clattering. At the same time a huge ship's whistle blew, mingling with the crowing of roosters, the roar of a distant surf, the soft throb of an engine far away, and the moaning cries of an old woman. In the rare periods of calm, when the movement of the pack subsided for a moment, the muffled rolling of drums drifted across the air. #Quote by Alfred Lansing
Periods quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#39. He shook his head, absorbed in one of his feats of memory, those brief periods of scholastic rapture where he lost touch with the world around him, absorbed completely in conjuring up knowledge from all its sources. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Periods quotes by Kurt Angle
#40. There are so many things that have evolved since I wrestled. They don't have periods anymore. They have rounds ... it confuses the younger demographic. #Quote by Kurt Angle
Periods quotes by Flynn Meaney
#41. And once, a sophomore English teacher, Mr. Watts, found out that one of his students had spent the past eight class periods carving an elaborate design into his desk. The "artwork" read: "Mr. Watts and Dickens sucks dick." Mr. Watts confronted the carver, telling him, "That's wrong!" Then Mr. Watts took the knife and crossed out the last s in sucks. "This sentence has two objects," he explained. "You need to conjugate the verb differently." And he handed the knife back. #Quote by Flynn Meaney
Periods quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#42. I have the legacy of my father and his nocturnal automatic waking up. But I like those periods. I immediately have a different vision of humanity and my life. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Periods quotes by Jay London
#43. His puppyhood was a period of foolish rebellion. He was always worsted, but he fought back because it was his nature to fight back. And he was unconquerable. #Quote by Jay London
Periods quotes by Jackie Kessler
#44. If Melissa Miller were an artist, she would have painted the world in vicious streaks of red. Nothing like Picasso's rose period, all soft and cheerful and so optimistic that it made you want to puke. Missy's red phase would have been brutal and bright enough to cut your eyes. Missy's art would have been honest. #Quote by Jackie Kessler
Periods quotes by Craig Williams
#45. The separation of the individual from a corporeal relationship with the Soul is mirrored in the separation of the individual from nature. This is perhaps one of the most important spiritual and psychological poisons of modernity: the alienation of the individual from the wilderness of nature. The modern obsession with progress and technology has worked to effectively separate man from the unpredictable and uncontrollable milieu of the wilderness and the concomitant alienation of the Soul from the flesh. The modern mind worships the Techno-God and uses many methods to enforce the separation of the flesh from the Soul. Reconnecting to nature requires only concentrated periods spent in a natural environment instead of living a life entirely immersed in artificial environments Efforts should be made to spend significant time in nature to allow the Sacramental Vision to thrive and organically develop. Without a constant connection to nature, the primordial voice of the Soul will eventually fade into silence. Nature must become a constant companion. #Quote by Craig Williams
Periods quotes by Hudson Gurney
#46. [Young] was afterwards accustomed to say, that at no period of his life was he particularly fond of repeating experiments, or even of very frequently attempting to originate new ones; considering that, however necessary to the advancement of science, they demanded a great sacrifice of time, and that when the fact was once established, that time was better employed in considering the purposes to which it might be applied, or the principles which it might tend to elucidate. #Quote by Hudson Gurney
Periods quotes by Martin Scorsese
#47. I'm in a different chapter of my life. As time goes by and I grow older, I find that I need to just be quiet and think. There have been periods when I've locked myself away for days, but now it's different - I'm married and we have a daughter who is in my office the whole time. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Periods quotes by Thomas Kuhn
#48. The resolution of revolutions is selection by conflict within the scientific community of the fittest way to practice future science. The net result of a sequence of such revolutionary selections, separated by periods of normal research, is the wonderfully adapted set of instruments we call modern scientific knowledge. #Quote by Thomas Kuhn
Periods quotes by Jayne Anne Phillips
#49. I work via the high-tension-wire method, which is maybe going for long periods without writing while the tension builds up - when am I going to write this, am I going to be able to write this, what is this image about - and I'm thinking about it all the time, but I'm not really inside it, inside the writing. #Quote by Jayne Anne Phillips
Periods quotes by Maria Montessori
#50. There are many who hold, as I do, that the most important part of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when a man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. But not only his intelligence; the full totality of his psychic powers. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Periods quotes by Zadie Smith
#51. He wanted to be in the world and take what came with it, endings local and universal, full stops, periods, looks of injured disappointment and the everyday war. He liked the everyday war. He was taking that with fries. To go. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Periods quotes by Mary Blakely
#52. If a woman is to know herself, then periods of solitude should be courted, planned, and embraced. #Quote by Mary Blakely
Periods quotes by Tom Bingham
#53. There are doubtless those who would wish to lock up all those who suspected of terrorist and other serious offences and, in the time-honored phrase, throw away the key. But a suspect is by definition a person whom no offence has been proved. Suspicions, even if reasonably entertained, may prove to be misplaced, as a series of tragic miscarriages of justice has demonstrated. Police officers and security officials can be wrong. It is a gross injustice to deprive of his liberty for significant periods a person who has committed no crime and does not intend to do so. No civilized country should willingly tolerate such injustices. #Quote by Tom Bingham
Periods quotes by Aubrey De Grey
#54. The aim is to postpone frailty, postpone degenerative disease, debilitation and so on and thereby shorten the period at the end of life, which is passed in a decrepit or disabled state, while extending life as a whole. #Quote by Aubrey De Grey
Periods quotes by David Downie
#55. Depending on which flavor of academic scholarship you prefer, that age had its roots in the Renaissance or Mannerist periods in Germany, England, and Italy. It first bloomed in France in the garden of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the 1780s. Others point to François-René de Chateaubriand's château circa 1800 or Victor Hugo's Paris apartments in the 1820s and '30s. The time frame depends on who you ask. All agree Romanticism reached its apogee in Paris in the 1820s to 1840s before fading, according to some circa 1850 to make way for the anti-Romantic Napoléon III and the Second Empire, according to others in the 1880s when the late Romantic Decadents took over. Yet others say the period stretched until 1914 - conveniently enduring through the debauched Belle Époque before expiring in time for World War I and the arrival of that other perennial of the pigeonhole specialists, modernism.

There are those, however, who look beyond dates and tags and believe the Romantic spirit never died, that it overflowed, spread, fractured, came back together again like the Seine around its islands, morphed into other isms, changed its name and address dozens of times as Nadar and Balzac did and, like a phantom or vampire or other supernatural invention of the Romantic Age, it thrives today in billions of brains and hearts. The mother ship, the source, the living shrine of Romanticism remains the city of Paris. #Quote by David Downie
Periods quotes by Dick Latvala
#56. I don't have an agenda. I don't have things I want to get to or something. I have like a broad, slim grasp of certain periods and certain shows within that period, an awareness of them, but they demand re-listening. I have a flimsy grasp of all the eras and ideas within each period of what would be a good show to think of. #Quote by Dick Latvala
Periods quotes by Nina Fedoroff
#57. We have domesticated crops over a very long period of time, like tens of thousands of years. And crops get - seeds get carried. Sometimes, if they're very small seeds, they get scattered off trucks. Pollen travels. #Quote by Nina Fedoroff
Periods quotes by Greta Gerwig
#58. I don't know. I think I'm sick.
And I don't know if my ailment has a name
- it's just me sitting and staring at the internet or the television for long periods of time interspersed by trying to not do that and then lying about what I've been doing. Then I'll get so excited about something that the excitement overwhelms me and I can't sleep or do anything - and then I just am in love with everything but can't figure out how to make myself work in the world #Quote by Greta Gerwig
Periods quotes by Alan Hovhaness
#59. There were periods when I sometimes made fires in a large, open fireplace that lasted about two weeks, which was how long it took to burn my compositions. So there has been an awful lot that I have destroyed. #Quote by Alan Hovhaness
Periods quotes by Russell Simmons
#60. When I started the diamond business, no black person, period, was in it to do what we're trying to do to change the industry. So I like to do things that I see clearly that are in my, you know, scope. And then, I had to figure how I get talented or smart business people around me to execute. That's what I have to do. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Periods quotes by Bernard Hinault
#61. I believe there are two periods in life, one for the bike, the other for becoming active on one's work. #Quote by Bernard Hinault
Periods quotes by Jude Law
#62. I was an optimist, a great champion of the human spirit. And I lost that for a time. I feel like I've regained a bit of that in the last few years but there was a period of my life in which I had a very low opinion of people in general. #Quote by Jude Law
Periods quotes by Cyndi Lauper
#63. The '80s was a really creative and brave period. Remember, it was a period of ultraconservatism, and so you needed brave people to push ahead like that. #Quote by Cyndi Lauper
Periods quotes by Robert Breault
#64. The trick to writing an aphorism is to place a period at the point where you're inclined to say, in other words ... #Quote by Robert Breault
Periods quotes by Peter Capaldi
#65. I think the periods of being unsuccessful have made me a better actor. #Quote by Peter Capaldi
Periods quotes by Robert B. Reich
#66. Look back over the last hundred years and you'll see the pattern. During periods when the very rich took home a much smaller proportion of total income - as in the Great Prosperity between 1947 and 1977 - the nation as a whole grew faster, and median wages surged. The basic bargain ensured that the pay of American workers coincided with their output. In effect, the vast middle class received an increasing share of the benefits of economic growth. We created that virtuous cycle in which an ever-growing middle class had the ability to consume more goods and services, which created more and better jobs, thereby stoking demand. The rising tide did in fact lift all boats. On the other hand, during periods when the very rich took home a larger proportion - as between 1918 and 1933, and in the Great Regression from 1981 to the present day - growth slowed, median wages stagnated, and we suffered giant downturns. #Quote by Robert B. Reich
Periods quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#67. People tend to think they break up because they get tired of the person they've been with---that it's someone's decision, either yours or theirs. But this really isn't true. Periods in our lives end the way seasons change. That's all there is to it. Human willpower can't change that--which means, if you look at it another way, that we might as well enjoy ourselves until that day arrives. #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Periods quotes by Wasif Ali Wasif
#68. The period before the dawn of knowledge is called the age of darkness. #Quote by Wasif Ali Wasif
Periods quotes by Benton MacKaye
#69. The problem of living is at bottom an economic one. And this alone is bad enough, even in a period of so-called "normalcy." But living has been considerably complicated of late in various ways - by war, by questions of personal liberty, and by "menaces" of one kind or another. #Quote by Benton MacKaye
Periods quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#70. The history of government management of money has, except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant fraud and deception. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Periods quotes by Meher Baba
#71. Avataric periods are like the spring-tide of creation. They bring a new release of power, a new awakening of consciousness, a new experience of life - not merely for a few, but for all. Qualities of energy and awareness, which had been used and enjoyed by only a few advanced souls, are made available for all humanity. Life, as a whole is stepped up to a higher level of consciousness, is geared to a new rate of energy. The transition from sensation to reason was one such step; the transition from reason to intuition will be another. #Quote by Meher Baba
Periods quotes by Alex Kingston
#72. Californians don't have that marvelous British cynicism, but then the British can be so patronizing at times. #Quote by Alex Kingston
Periods quotes by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
#73. It had been a long, dull day at Jackson without Hurrican Lena, and I was starting to wonder how I ever got through eight periods without all the trouble she caused me. Without all the trouble she made me want to cause myself. #Quote by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Periods quotes by Kevin O'Leary
#74. We need physical exercise to prepare our brain for long periods of concentration #Quote by Kevin O'Leary
Periods quotes by Steve Jobs
#75. I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Periods quotes by Aisha Tyler
#76. I've always been a gamer, and I had a period where I was gaming at a really hardcore level. #Quote by Aisha Tyler
Periods quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#77. I think that Sir Winston Churchill, in the period that the Germans occupied the Channel Ports, when the whole war hung in issue, fulfilled a role, which is as great as any role in our history. #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
Periods quotes by Elie Wiesel
#78. A Jew who converted, who simulated, was, at least in some periods, safe. Hitler in the beginning did not want to kill all the Jews but he wanted us to have a Germany free of Jews. If America had allowed Jews to come in, the British had accepted Jews from Palestine, they were safe. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Periods quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#79. I am just postmodern enough not to trust 'postmodern' as a description of our times, for it privileges the practices and intellectual formations of modernity. Calling this a postmodern age reproduces the modernist assumption that history must be policed by periods. #Quote by Stanley Hauerwas
Periods quotes by Anne Lamott
#80. Periods in the wilderness or desert were not lost time. You might find life, wildflowers, fossils, sources of water. I wish there were shortcuts to wisdom and self-knowledge: cuter abysses or three-day spa wilderness experiences. Sadly, it doesn't work that way. I so resent this. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Periods quotes by Alice Walker
#81. Creation is a sustained period of bliss, even though the subject can still be very sad. Because there's the triumph of coming through and understanding that you have, and that you did it the way only you could do it. You didn't do it the way somebody told you to do it. #Quote by Alice Walker
Periods quotes by Emily Dickinson
#82. Pain - has an Element of Blank
It cannot recollect
When it begun - or if there were
a time when it was not -
It has no Future - but itself -
Its Infinite contain
Its Past - enlightened to perceive
New Periods - of Pain. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Periods quotes by Steve Blake
#83. I have periods where I listen to regular rap, Jay-Z, Eminem and Lil Wayne. The next day I might have some Christian alternative music. The next day I have on some dance music. It all varies what I listen to. #Quote by Steve Blake
Periods quotes by Frances Conroy
#84. It's actually meditative to sit in a character for an extended period of time, realizing what your relationship is to who you're playing and then letting go, just being there. #Quote by Frances Conroy
Periods quotes by Nicholas Kardaras
#85. If you really want a child to thrive and blossom, lose the screens for the first few years of their lives. During those key developmental periods, let them engaging creative play. Legos are always great, as they encourage creativity and the hand-eye coordination nurtures synaptic growth. Let them explore their surroundings and allow them opportunities to experience nature. . Activities like cooking and playing music also have been shown to help young children thrive developmentally. But most importantly, let them experience boredom; there is nothing healthier for a child then to learn how to use their own interior resources to work through the challenges of being bored. This then acts as the fertile ground for developing their powers of observation, cultivating patience and developing an active imagination-- the most developmentally and neurosynaptically important skill that they can learn. #Quote by Nicholas Kardaras
Periods quotes by Charlie Munger
#86. Black-Scholes is a know-nothing system. If you know nothing about value - only price - then Black-Scholes is a pretty good guess at what a 90-day option might be worth. But the minute you get into longer periods of time, it's crazy to get into Black-Scholes. For example, at Costco we issued stock options with strike prices of $30 and $60, and Black-Scholes valued the $60 ones higher. This is insane. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Periods quotes by Anousheh Ansari
#87. Being an entrepreneur does require a lot of sacrifice of your personal time and personal hobbies and things that you enjoy. At least for the period of high growth that you experience at the beginning of a company's life cycle, you have to be ready to make a lot of time sacrifices and personal sacrifice. #Quote by Anousheh Ansari
Periods quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#88. Kessen groaned, then silently wondered if she should download the e-reader application for her phone she could pretend to be texting but be reading instead. It might look odd for her to be staring at her phone for long periods of time. #Quote by Rachel Van Dyken
Periods quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#89. A government is republican in proportion as every member composing it has his equal voice in the direction of its concerns, not indeed in person, which would be impracticable beyond the limits of a city or small township, but by representatives chosen by himself and responsible to him at short periods. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Periods quotes by Chris Colfer
#90. In what grade do we stop believing in ourselves? In what grade do we stop believing, period? #Quote by Chris Colfer
Periods quotes by Lynn Margulis
#91. People think the earth is going to die and they have to save it. That's ridiculous. If you rid the earth of flowering plants, people would die, period. But the earth was without flowering plants for almost all of its history. #Quote by Lynn Margulis
Periods quotes by A. C. Green
#92. If you can control yourself sexually, you can control yourself. Period. #Quote by A. C. Green
Periods quotes by John Hudson Tiner
#93. Isaac looked for a grand patter to the Universe. He spent long periods lost in thought. Then suddenly he dashed off several pages without pausing. #Quote by John Hudson Tiner
Periods quotes by Leigh Steinberg
#94. But the equipment to protect the players hasn't developed along with that, so now you have more players out with worse injuries, for longer periods of time. #Quote by Leigh Steinberg
Periods quotes by John Jeremiah Bigsby
#95. The Silurian Period-the grandest of all the Periods,-and, as yet, apparently the seed-time of all succeeding life. #Quote by John Jeremiah Bigsby
Periods quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#96. With the exception only of the period of the gold standard, practically all governments of history have used their exclusive power to issue money to defraud and plunder the people. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Periods quotes by Montgomery Clift
#97. I have the same problem as Marilyn. We attract people the way honey does bees, but they're generally the wrong kind of people. People who want something from us - if only our energy. We need a period of being alone to become ourselves. #Quote by Montgomery Clift
Periods quotes by Alan Parker
#98. Period recreation is very difficult unless you make a black-and-white movie. #Quote by Alan Parker
Periods quotes by Victoria Chang
#99. I think being a poet, period, is isolating. #Quote by Victoria Chang
Periods quotes by Jennifer Nettles
#100. I have always loved and continued to love Johnny Depp. Period. End of story. #Quote by Jennifer Nettles
Periods quotes by Curtis Jackson
#101. My work out routine is always changing. It should never stay the same for long periods of time. #Quote by Curtis Jackson
Periods quotes by Edward Gibbon
#102. The two Antonines (for it is of them that we are now speaking) governed the Roman world forty-two years, with the same invariable spirit of wisdom and virtue ... Their united reigns are possibly the only period of history in which the happiness of a great people was the sole object of government. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Periods quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#103. There had been periods in his twenties when he would look at his friends and feel such a pure, deep contentment that he would wish the world around them would simply cease, that none of them would have to move from that moment, when everything was in equilibrium and his affection for them was perfect. But, of course, that was never to be: a beat later, and everything shifted, and the moment quietly vanished. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Periods quotes by Rhys Darby
#104. I was in the New Zealand army for like four years, the exact period of when it was on the air, so I never saw it. #Quote by Rhys Darby
Periods quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#105. I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Periods quotes by John G. D. Clark
#106. One aspect of this is the way we have come during recent centuries to appreciate that the world and indeed the very universe in which we live have evolved over immense periods of time. #Quote by John G. D. Clark
Periods quotes by Judd Apatow
#107. I really think more about being honest and truthful about feelings and how people behave for the movies that I direct, but I also love movies like Zohan and Anchorman, just balls to the wall, how much can you make people laugh in one 90 minute period. #Quote by Judd Apatow
Periods quotes by Louis Cozolino
#108. Sensitive periods are triggered via the interaction of genetic timing and experience. Sensitive periods are times of rapid learning when thousands of synaptic connections are made each second (Greenough, 1987; ten Cate, 1989). The timing of sensitive periods varies #Quote by Louis Cozolino
Periods quotes by Steven Pinker
#109. The authors of recent histories of mass killing are adamant that the idea of an unprecedented "century of genocide" (the 20th) is a myth. On their first page Chalk and Jonassohn write, "Genocide has been practiced in all regions of the world and during all periods in history," and add that their eleven case studies of pre-20th-century genocides "are not intended to be either exhaustive or representative. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Periods quotes by Alain De Botton
#110. Because the rhythm of conversation makes no allowance for dead periods, because the presence of others calls for continuous responses, we are left to regret the inanity of what we say, and the missed opportunity of what we do not. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Periods quotes by M. E. W. Sherwood
#111. The poor are always ragged and dirty, in very picturesque clothes, and on their poor shoes lies the earth of the Lacustrine period. And yet what a privilege it is to be even a beggar in Rome! #Quote by M. E. W. Sherwood
Periods quotes by Irene Nemirovsky
#112. After the calm comes the storm; it starts out slowly, reaches its peak, then it's over and other periods of calm, some longer, some shorter, come along. It's just been our bad luck to be born in a century full of storms, that's all. They'll die down. #Quote by Irene Nemirovsky
Periods quotes by Darmie Orem
#113. We are the wining fighters we are today because we are the products of rougher times that, didn't break 'self-respect' during tested periods. #Quote by Darmie Orem
Periods quotes by Austin Ligon
#114. After careful consideration, we have decided that for our next fiscal year, we'll issue guidance on comparable store used unit sales and on earnings per share only for the full fiscal year. We will no longer issue quarterly guidance. This decision reflects our continuing focus on longer-term store, sales, and earnings growth and on return on invested capital, and our recognition that the performance in shorter-term periods can be more volatile than over the longer term. As we report our quarterly results, we plan to comment on how our performance is tracking against our annual guidance. #Quote by Austin Ligon
Periods quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#115. The world got side-tracked from development issues during the post-9/11 crisis period. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Periods quotes by Gayle Forman
#116. Life can be hard and beautiful and messy, but hopefully, it will be long. If it is, you will see that it's unpredictable, and that the dark periods comes, but they abate
sometimes with a lot of support
and the tunnel widens, allowing the sun back in. If you're in the dark, it might feel like you will always be there. Fumbling. Alone. But you won't
and you're not. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Periods quotes by Ken Keyes Jr.
#117. By tuning in to your minute-to-minute stream of consciousness, you discover the addictions that make you worried, anxious, resentful, uptight, afraid, angry, bored, etc. You thus use every uncomfortable emotion as an opportunity for consciousness growth. Even though you may still be feeling emotional and uptight, you begin to get at the roots of your ups and downs - your brief bits of pleasure and your long periods of unhappiness. #Quote by Ken Keyes Jr.
Periods quotes by Mary Karr
#118. When people suffer, their relationships usually suffer as well. Period. And we all suffer because, as the Buddha says, that's the nature of being human and wanting stuff we don't always get. #Quote by Mary Karr
Periods quotes by Ruth Rendell
#119. There are only two periods in a woman's life when she hopes to be taken for older than she is, under sixteen and over ninety. #Quote by Ruth Rendell
Periods quotes by David Rhodes
#120. His psychic wounds presented a more complicated challenge. Something was needed in addition to the autonomic remedies provided by dreams, shaking, weeping, hollering, sweating, and vomiting. For true recovery -- involution -- Blake required satisfactory relations with other creatures over extended periods of time, and lots and lots of rest ... Blake could sometimes imagine what a reasonably balanced state of mind would be like. He could almost picture a less haunted edition of himself, sense an inheritance that might come due someday. #Quote by David Rhodes
Periods quotes by Lewis Spence
#121. As Mr. R. U. Sayee has well said: 'It should be clear a priori that fairy lore must have developed as a result of modifications and accretions received in different countries and at many periods, though we must not overlook the part played by tradition in providing a mould that to some extent determines the nature of later additions.' It must also be self-evident that a great deal of confusion has been caused by the assumption that some spirit-types were fairies which in a more definite sense are certainly not of elfin provenance. In some epochs, indeed, Faerie appears to have been regarded as a species of limbo to which all 'pagan' spirits - to say nothing of defeated gods, monsters, and demons - could be banished, along with the personnel of Olympus and the rout of witchcraft. Such types, however, are usually fairly easy of detection. #Quote by Lewis Spence
Periods quotes by Joe Henderson
#122. They trained mostly by time periods, checking their pace for known distance only on special occasions. #Quote by Joe Henderson
Periods quotes by Jean M. Auel
#123. I could write historical fiction, or science fiction, or a mystery but since I find it fascinating to research the clues of some little know period and develop a story based on that, I will probably continue to do it. #Quote by Jean M. Auel
Periods quotes by Gabe Polsky
#124. I don't want to get into being too hockey centered, but I just felt like the late 70's and 80's into the 90's was the right time period to tell the story. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Periods quotes by Neko Case
#125. I really wanted to find a piano for the farm house. There were so many free pianos on Craigslist, I thought, 'Let's get as many free pianos as we can and stick them all in the barn.' I got eight in a short period of time, only six of which were tunable, but it's still quite funny. #Quote by Neko Case
Periods quotes by Charles Stross
#126. I am a lazy, cynical, middle-aged guy who has long since come to the conclusion that most historical periods really sucked, for most people, most of the time. #Quote by Charles Stross
Periods quotes by Clive Barker
#127. Our lives are scattered throughout with periods of unbelonging; in childhood, of course, and adolescence; but in adulthood too, when sudden loss (or gain) forces us to reassess things we believe immutable. #Quote by Clive Barker
Periods quotes by Haruki Murakami
#128. Girls have periods and boys wank. Everybody. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Periods quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#129. During the first period of our lives the greatest danger is not to take the risk. When once the risk has been taken, then the greatest danger is to risk too much. By not risking at first one turns aside and serves trivialities; in the second case, by risking too much, one turns aside to the fantastic and perhaps to presumption. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Periods quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#130. There are also flat periods in life which may well be the periods during which-before new lessons come- the past lessons of life are allowed to seep, quietly and deeply, into the marrow of the soul. These outwardly flat periods, when enduring well may not seem very purposeful,, are probably the times when needed attitudinal alignments are quietly occurring. #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Periods quotes by Richie Sambora
#131. Going through the grief period of my dad and losing him - that was the worst thing because you know when you get that call. When you are seven, eight years old, you have that almost vision in your mind of what that's going to be like and what your going to feel like and it doesn't prepare you. #Quote by Richie Sambora
Periods quotes by Chris Boardman
#132. There simply is nothing else like it. And, as a test of physical and mental endurance it has no equal. Other sports may be as intense, as pressurized, as hard for short periods: But the Tour does on day after day after day. It's the only race in the world where you have to get a haircut halfway through. #Quote by Chris Boardman
Periods quotes by Philip Roth
#133. Life is just a short period of time in which you are alive. #Quote by Philip Roth
Periods quotes by Michael Kadoorie
#134. I think as you grow up, you have the adjustment to responsibilities. Now you could say that's easy or not easy ... but that's a difficult period of your life. You have the loss of loved ones, which then means you have more responsibilities. Periods in business when things don't run evenly. #Quote by Michael Kadoorie
Periods quotes by Dorothee Solle
#135. In cultures where asceticism developed and was practiced, people knew that one can suffocate when every option is a readily available one. Without self-limitation, without fixed boundaries - like those given in creation between day and night, summer and winter, being young and growing old-life loses its humanness. Asceticism means to renounce at least for periods of time the options that present themselves . . .

In rich societies, the fundamental idea of sacrifice is highly suspect; it contradicts the basic constitution of the world of affluence. Sacrifice, as well as those who are to do the sacrificing have indeed been much abused. Even so, voluntary sacrifice, freely renouncing status, and limiting career or other options available to oneself can consolidate one's capacity for happiness.

This seems very apparent to me in ecological resistance movements. No one can feel at home in a world that has to be bought and used up. We ourselves as well as the environment are damaged by consumerism; it dulls the senses so that people no longer know how to smell, taste, feel, and see. #Quote by Dorothee Solle
Periods quotes by Shelley Jackson
#136. Nobody can remember when the sperm became large enough to see, but we agree on this: once that point was reached, every generation topped the last. They went from guppy to goldfish, and before long they could frighten a schnauzer, and not much later even Great Danes made way for them....
Sperm are ancient creatures, single-minded as coelacanths. They are drawn to the sun, the moon, and dots and disks of all descriptions, including periods, stop signs, and stars. They worship at nail heads, doorknobs and tennis balls. More than one life has been saved by a penny tossed in the air. #Quote by Shelley Jackson
Periods quotes by Michael Meade
#137. Something deep in the human soul awakens as things fall apart. Something in the soul knows that everything in this world can become lost. And something in the soul knows how to survive periods of devastation, disorientation and loss. Descent and falling is the way of the soul from its beginning. We each fell from the womb of life when the waters of the inner sea broke and it came time for us to breathe on our own. #Quote by Michael Meade
Periods quotes by Joseph Story
#138. There never has been a period of history, in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundation. #Quote by Joseph Story
Periods quotes by George Saunders
#139. So let me just say this. There are ways. You already know that because, in your life, there have been High Kindness periods and Low Kindness periods, and you know what inclined you toward the former and away from the latter. Education is good; immersing ourselves in a work of art: good; prayer is good; meditation's good; a frank talk with a dear friend; establishing ourselves in some kind of spiritual tradition - recognizing that there have been countless really smart people before us who have asked these same questions and left behind answers for us. It would be strange and self-defeating to fail to seek out these wise voices from the past
as self-defeating as it would be to attempt to rediscover the principles of physics from scratch or invent a new method of brain surgery without having learned the ones that already exist. #Quote by George Saunders
Periods quotes by Elizabeth Kostova
#140. It's a shame for a woman's history to be all about men-first boys, then other boys, then men, men, men. It reminds me of the way our school history textbooks were all about wars and elections, one war after another, with the dull periods of peace skimmed over when they happened. #Quote by Elizabeth Kostova
Periods quotes by Melissa Benoist
#141. Every day, I just thank the universe that I am as lucky as I am. Because, I went through periods of time when I didn't have a single bit of work. Months and months where I was auditioning all the time. I mean, all the time, and nothing was happening. #Quote by Melissa Benoist
Periods quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#142. But then I go through long periods where I don't listen to things, usually when I'm working. In between the records and in between the writing I suck up books and music and movies and anything I can find. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Periods quotes by Kevin Hart
#143. When I was married, I definitely went through a lying period. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Periods quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#144. It is noticed, that the consideration of the great periods and spaces of astronomy induces a dignity of mind, and an indifferenceto death. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Periods quotes by C.S. Lewis
#145. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy, therefore, is undulation--the repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks. If you had watched your patient carefully you would have seen this undulation in every department of his life--his interest in his work, his affection for his friends, his physical appetites, all go up and down. As long as he lives on earth periods of emotional and bodily richness and liveliness will alternate with periods of numbness and poverty. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Periods quotes by George Orwell
#146. On the village green, where you pick up sides and no feeling of local patriotism is involved, it is possible to play simply for fun and exercise: but as soon as the question of prestige arises, as soon as you feel that you and some larger unit will be disgraced if you lose, the most savage combative instincts are aroused…Nations work themselves into furies over these absurd contests, and seriously believe – at any rate for short periods – that running, jumping, and kicking a ball are tests of national virtue. #Quote by George Orwell
Periods quotes by Manmohan Singh
#147. Let me say that I think the economic history of the last 150 years clearly shows that if you want to industrialize a country in a short period, let us say 20 years, and you don't have a well-developed private sector, entrepreneurial class, then central planning is important. #Quote by Manmohan Singh
Periods quotes by Kristin Chenoweth
#148. I read my Bible and I pray and all of that. I really do. But at the same time, I don't think being gay is a sin. Period. #Quote by Kristin Chenoweth
Periods quotes by Dan Fogler
#149. I grew up in the '80s. I was a kid, but all my favorite movies came out of that period. #Quote by Dan Fogler
Periods quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#150. Of course there were plateaus, periods when my results leveled off while I internalized the information necessary for my next growth spurt, but I didn't mind. #Quote by Josh Waitzkin
Periods quotes by Mitch Horowitz
#151. Women had no clerical role anywhere in the Western world, period. #Quote by Mitch Horowitz
Periods quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#152. The great periods of our life occur when we gain the courage to rechristen what is bad about us as what is best. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Periods quotes by Rick Perry
#153. Scouting ought to be about building character, not about sex. Period. Precious few parents enroll their boys in the Scouts to get a crash course in sexual orientation. #Quote by Rick Perry
Periods quotes by Perry Noble
#154. If you don't let your past die, then it won't let you live. Period. #Quote by Perry Noble
Periods quotes by Lawrence Blair
#155. Totally isolated from our own culture for long periods, we became vulnerable to forgotten times and tribes re-awakening within us. Our journeys, we found, were to take us simultaneously to some of the least-charted regions of the planet and to the least-charted regions of our own minds. What began for us as the effort to capture a purely objective record of what we saw gradually dissolved into a quest, an odyssey of self-discovery which actually took place amongst the last of the lands of real living kings and queens, dragons and pirates, cannibals and headhunters, mystics and magicians. #Quote by Lawrence Blair
Periods quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#156. Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Periods quotes by Antonio Gotto
#157. If you can maintain the diet over a period of time, that's very good.
If you're taking statins and you're not following a diet, you could partially undo the effects of statins. #Quote by Antonio Gotto
Periods quotes by Roger Zelazny
#158. An army, great in space, may offer opposition in a brief span of time. One man, brief in space, must spread his opposition across a period of many years if he is to have a chance of succeeding. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Periods quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#159. What about little microphones? What if everyone swallowed them, and they played the sounds of our hearts through little speakers, which could be in the pouches of our overalls? When you skateboarded down the street at night you could hear everyone's heartbeat, and they could hear yours, sort of like sonar. One weird thing is, I wonder if everyone's hearts would start to beat at the same time, like how women who live together have their menstrual periods at the same time, which I know about, but don't really want to know about. That would be so weird, except that the place in the hospital where babies are born would sound like a crystal chandelier in a houseboat, because the babies wouldn't have had time to match up their heartbeats yet. And at the finish line at the end of the New York City Marathon it would sound like war. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Periods quotes by John Gould
#160. What I love about the currawongs is the way in which they appear from nowhere and, for a brief period, rule the garden's soundscape, only to disappear as quickly as they arrived. #Quote by John Gould
Periods quotes by Thom S. Rainer
#161. If outside forces and culture were the reasons behind declining and non-influential churches, we would likely have no churches today. The greatest periods of growth, particularly the first-century growth, took place in adversarial cultures. We are not hindered by external forces; we are hindered by our own lack of commitment and selflessness. #Quote by Thom S. Rainer
Periods quotes by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
#162. Power deities, for all their strength, are very much like humans, They are subjects to periods of despair and are not free from the crippling consequences of emotions, For over two decades Tibetans were forbidden from holding any religious ceremonies or prayers. No prayer flags, incense or ceremonies were offered to the deities and demi-gods of the region. This neglect broke their hearts and they became bedraggled and weak. #Quote by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa
Periods quotes by Danielle LaPorte
#163. I focus for periods of time on creative work and I'm very insular during those times - not a lot of socializing. I play when I want. That means I can take off on a retreat, catch a matinee, make friends. My core desired feelings are my time management system. #Quote by Danielle LaPorte
Periods quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#164. Over immense periods of time the intellect produced nothing but errors. A few of these proved to be useful and helped to preserve the species: those who hit upon or inherited these had better luck in their struggle for themselves and their progeny. Such erroneous articles of faith ... include the following: that there are things, substances, bodies; that a thing is what it appears to be; that our will is free; that what is good for me is also good in itself. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Periods quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#165. How much more the seeker of abstract truth, who needs periods of isolation, and rapt concentration, and almost a going out of thebody to think! #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Periods quotes by Gore Verbinski
#166. I think comedy is drama, often. It's hard to have comedy over a period of time - commercials are one thing, but over a period of time - comedy and tragedy go hand in hand. #Quote by Gore Verbinski
Periods quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#167. Personal ignorance and shallow thoughts led me to misconstrue reality. Instead of taking an occasional respite from meeting work related deadlines and reflecting upon the growth of the inner self, all my personal energy was devoted to efficiently performing daily tasks, responding to the never-ending heave of the external world of busyness. Busy people tabulate the value of their life of work by what they achieved, which can prove meritorious. We can also hide from ourselves by never devoting select intervals of quietness for self-reflection. We need periods of silence and contemplation in order to nurture our spiritual development. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Periods quotes by Robert Englund
#168. Many great horror stories are period pieces and English actors have a facility for historic characters. #Quote by Robert Englund
Periods quotes by Katherine Harris
#169. No partisan political activity transpired in my office during the recount period. #Quote by Katherine Harris
Periods quotes by Edward Wilmot Blyden
#170. I would rather be a member of this [Afrikan] race than a Greek in the time of Alexander, a Roman in the Augustan period, or Anglo-Saxon in the nineteenth century. #Quote by Edward Wilmot Blyden
Periods quotes by Jim Webb
#171. I have proudly spent several periods in government, but I'm not a career politician. I come from a family of 'citizen soldiers.' #Quote by Jim Webb
Periods quotes by Leonard Nimoy
#172. For a period of time, I carried cameras with me wherever I went, and then I realized that my interest in photography was turning toward the conceptual. So I wasn't carrying around cameras shooting stuff, I was developing concepts about what I wanted to shoot. And then I'd get the camera angle and do the job. #Quote by Leonard Nimoy
Periods quotes by Rico Lebrun
#173. If we artists are to survive this period at all - we will survive as spokesmen, never again as entertainers. #Quote by Rico Lebrun
Periods quotes by Etgar Keret
#174. I was first introduced to Kafka's writing during my compulsory army-service basic training. During that period, Kafka's fiction felt hyperrealistic. #Quote by Etgar Keret
Periods quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#175. The Prydain Companion is more than a quick reference or handy glossary, though it is all of that as well. Instructive, certainly. But, like any good companion, a pleasure to be with over a long period of time. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Periods quotes by Ford Madox Ford
#176. A gentleman in those days consulted his heirs about tree planting. Should you plant a group of copper beeches against a group of white maples over against the ha-ha a quarter of a mile from the house so that the contrast seen from the ball-room windows should be agreeable - in thirty years' time? In those days thought, in families, went in periods of thirty years, owner gravely consulting heir who should see that development of light and shade that the owner never would. #Quote by Ford Madox Ford
Periods quotes by Marion Barry
#177. The contagious people of Washington have stood firm against diversity during this long period of increment weather. #Quote by Marion Barry
Periods quotes by Paul R. Ehrlich
#178. The history of the knowledge of the phenomena of life and of the organized world can be divided into two main periods. For a long time anatomy, and particularly the anatomy of the human body, was the a and ? of scientific knowledge. Further progress only became possible with the discovery of the microscope. A long time had yet to pass until through Schwann the cell was established as the final biological unit. It would mean bringing coals to Newcastle were I to describe here the immeasurable progress which biology in all its branches owes to the introduction of this concept of the cell. For this concept is the axis around which the whole of the modem science of life revolves. #Quote by Paul R. Ehrlich
Periods quotes by Abraham Flexner
#179. At no period of [Michael Faraday's] unmatched career was he interested in utility. He was absorbed in disentangling the riddles of the universe, at first chemical riddles, in later periods, physical riddles. As far as he cared, the question of utility was never raised. Any suspicion of utility would have restricted his restless curiosity. In the end, utility resulted, but it was never a criterion to which his ceaseless experimentation could be subjected. #Quote by Abraham Flexner
Periods quotes by Ben Burtt
#180. Most sound people don't get the assignment to create worlds of sound and get freedom to try a lot of things and then get the scrutiny and support of the team over a long period of time. #Quote by Ben Burtt
Periods quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#181. All men know that by sheer weight of physical force, the mass of men must in the last resort become the arbiters of human action. But reason, skill, wealth, machines and power may for long periods enable the few to control the many. But to what end? The current theory of democracy is that dictatorship is a stopgap pending the work of universal education, equitable income, and strong character. But always the temptation is to use the stopgap for narrower ends, because intelligence, thrift and goodness seem so impossibly distant for most men. We rule by junta; we turn Fascist, because we do not believe in men; yet the basis of fact in this disbelief is incredibly narrow. We know perfectly well that most human beings have never had a decent human chance to be full men. Most of us may be convinced that even with opportunity the number of utter human failures would be vast; and yet remember that this assumption kept the ancestors of present white America long in slavery and degradation.

It is then one's moral duty to see that every human being, to the extent of his capacity, escapes ignorance, poverty and crime. With this high ideal held unswervingly in view, monarchy, oligarchy, dictatorships may rule; but the end will be the rule of All, if mayhap All or Most qualify. The only unforgivable sin is dictatorship for the benefit of Fools, Voluptuaries, gilded Satraps, Prostitutes and Idiots. The rule of the famished, unlettered, stinking mob is better than this and the on #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Periods quotes by Paul Merton
#182. It was a bizarre existence I led in my early twenties - that cliche of the comedian who goes out and entertains a roomful of people and then goes home to a lonely bedsit was unbelievably poignant for me because that was exactly what I was doing. I had periods of real loneliness. #Quote by Paul Merton
Periods quotes by Rodney Clawson
#183. It seems like songwriting for most songwriters is only one season in their life, a five or ten year period. For me, I don't worry about it, but I know there might come a day when I can't write anymore, or don't have good song ideas or the fire to do it anymore. #Quote by Rodney Clawson
Periods quotes by Chelsea Handler
#184. While looking at a website for liposuction, I learned that it was a six-to eight-week recovery period, the clincher being that, during that time, I would under no circumstances be able to use street drugs. Obviously I had to think of a more realistic approach. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Periods quotes by Orson Welles
#185. [The movies] make the sort of comment only a novel can make, an allusion to the world in which people live, the psychological and economic motivations, the influences of the period in which they lived. #Quote by Orson Welles
Periods quotes by Richard G. Scott
#186. He [the Lord] will always hear your prayers and will invariably answer them. However, His answers will seldom come while you are on your knees praying, even when you may plead for an immediate response. Rather, He will prompt you in quiet moments when the Spirit can most effectively touch your mind and heart. Hence, you should find periods of quiet time to recognize when you are being instructed and strengthened. #Quote by Richard G. Scott
Periods quotes by Lindsey Graham
#187. For 40 years, the American middle class has been disappearing. Millions of people are working longer hours for lower wages despite a huge increase in technology and productivity. And what we have seen during that period is a massive transfer of trillions of dollars from the middle class to the top one-tenth of 1 percent of America #Quote by Lindsey Graham
Periods quotes by Daniel Walker Howe
#188. George Smith shows how many of the prophet's followers embraced plural marriage during a period when the LDS Church was emphatically denying the practice ... [and he tells this in] a lucid writing style. #Quote by Daniel Walker Howe
Periods quotes by John Updike
#189. Nothing seems to matter quite as much. I no longer think about death in the concentrated way I once did. I don't know? you get so old and you sort of give up in some way. You've had your period of angst, your period of religious desperation, and you've arrived at a philosophical position where you don't need, or you can't bear, to look at it. #Quote by John Updike
Periods quotes by Christina Lauren
#190. He closes the door with a determined click, and I hear him call to a flight attendant, and I sink down onto the toilet seat, resting my elbows on my knees and my head in my hands as I listen to him through the door.

"I'm sorry to bother you but my wife," he says, and then pauses. With the last word he says, my heart begins to hammer. "The one who now got sick? She's started her... cycle? And I'm wondering if you keep any, or rather if you have... something? You see this all happened a bit fast and she packed in a hurry, and before that we were in Vegas. I have no idea why she came with me but I really really don't want to screw this up. And now she needs something. Can she, uh," he stutters, finally saying simply, "borrow quelque chose?" I cover my mouth as he continues to ramble, and I would given anything in this moment to see the expression of the flight attendant on the other side of this door. "I meant use," he continues. "Not to borrow because I don't think they work that way."

I hear a woman's voice ask, "Do you know if she needs tampons or pads?"

Oh God. Oh God. This can't be happening.

"Um..." I hear him sigh and then say, "I have no idea but I'll give you a hundred dollars to end this conversation and give me both. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Periods quotes by Eric Kandel
#191. As you know, in most areas of science, there are long periods of beginning before we really make progress. #Quote by Eric Kandel
Periods quotes by Francois Fenelon
#192. We must have faith during the period of our grief. We think that our afflictions will be greater than we can bear, but we do not know the strength of our own hearts, nor the power of God. He knows all. He knows every folding of the heart and also the extent of the sorrow that he inflicts. What we think will overwhelm us entirely only subdues and conquers our pride. Our renewed spirit rises from its subjugation with a celestial strength and consolation. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Periods quotes by Hideki Tojo
#193. Throughout that period, Japan had made honest efforts to keep the destruction of war from spreading and, based on the belief that all nations of the world should find their places, had followed a policy designed to restore an expeditious peace between Japan and China. #Quote by Hideki Tojo
Periods quotes by Ron Brackin
#194. Patience is not developed by being forced to wait in long lines or for long periods of time. Patience is a decision: to sit back rather than lean forward, to shift your weight from the balls of your feet to your heels. To settle your thoughts on now, to enjoy the journey, to give something or someone time to grow. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Periods quotes by Michael Mosley
#195. There is no reason to be alarmed by benign, occasional, short-term hunger. Given base-level good health, you will not perish. You won't collapse in a heap and need to be rescued by the cat. Your body is designed to go without food for longish periods, even if it has lost the skill through years of grazing, picking, and snacking. Research has found that modern humans tend to mistake a whole range of emotions for hunger.6 We eat when we're bored, when we're thirsty, when we're around food (when aren't we?), when we're with company, or simply when the clock happens to tell us it's time for food. Most of us eat, too, just because it feels good. This is known as hedonic hunger, #Quote by Michael Mosley
Periods quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#196. In my opinion, for Baudelaire, the word vast is a vocal value. It is a word that is pronounced, never only read, never only seen in the objects to which it is attached. It is one of those words that a writer always speaks softly while he is writing it. Whether in verse or in prose, it has a poetic effect, which is also an effect of vocal poetry. This word immediately stands out from the words that surround it, from the images, and perhaps, even, from the thought. It is a "power of the word." Indeed, whenever we read this word in the measure of one of Baudelaire's verses, or in the periods of his prose poems, we have the impression that he forces us to pronounce it. The word vast, then, is a vocable of breath. It is placed on our breathing, which must be slow and calm. And the fact is that always, in Baudelaire's poetics, the word vast evokes calm, peace and serenity. It expresses a vital, intimate conviction. It transmits to our ears the echo of the secret recesses of our being. For this word bears the mark of gravity, it is the enemy of turmoil, opposed to the vocal exaggerations of declamation. In diction enslaved to strict measure, it would be shattered. The word vast must reign over the peaceful silence of being. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Periods quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#197. During the periods in my marriage when I chose to stay home with my kids rather than work as an attorney, it caused me no end of anxiety. Despite the fact that I knew I was contributing to our family by caring for our children, I still felt that my worth was less because I wasn't earning. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Periods quotes by Art Hochberg
#198. For a man, he has to learn how to get along without a woman for periods of time. For a woman, she has to learn how to get along without a man for periods of time. That's how men and women learn to be able to get along with each other. #Quote by Art Hochberg
Periods quotes by Mike Lofgren
#199. Every time General David Petraeus appeared before a congressional committee, whether to testify about Iraq or Afghanistan or to be confirmed as CIA director, the hearings were largely a waste of time. Members of Congress burned through large segments of their time-limited question periods by tossing verbal kisses to the witness and going on about what a patriot Petraeus was. There was little time to ask serious questions about the strategy of our trillion-dollar military engagement in the Muslim world and to explore alternatives. The fawning of military cheerleaders such as Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham reached such extravagant lengths as would have made Caesar blush. #Quote by Mike Lofgren
Periods quotes by Jen Campbell
#200. Lignin, an organic polymer found in trees, is chemically similar to vanillin, the primary extract of the vanilla bean. So when trees are made into books and kept for long periods of time, the lignin in the paper breaks down and starts to smell like vanilla.
This is why antiquarian books, and secondhand bookshops, smell so damn good. #Quote by Jen Campbell
