Picks quotes by Stan Musial
#1. I consciously memorized the speed at which every pitcher in the league threw his fastball, curve, and slider. Then, I'd pick up the speed of the ball in the first 30 feet of its flight and knew how it would move once it has crossed the plate. #Quote by Stan Musial
Picks quotes by Dean Koontz
#2. The line between moral behavior and narcissistic self-righteousness is thin and difficult to discern. The man who stands before a crowd and proclaims his intention to save the seas is convinced that he is superior to a man who merely picks up his own and other people's litter on the beach, when in fact the latter is in some small way sure to make the world a better place, while the former is likely to be a monster of vanity whose crusade will lead to unintended destruction. #Quote by Dean Koontz

Picks quotes by Helen Fisher
#5. There were real reasons that you were attracted to somebody originally. The brain doesn't pick willy-nilly. Unless you part ways hating each other for some reason, that mechanism could get triggered again. You can literally fall in love again. #Quote by Helen Fisher
Picks quotes by Thomas Merton
#6. Our minds are like crows. They pick up everything that glitters, no matter how uncomfortable our nests get with all that metal in them. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Picks quotes by Rory Power

Picks quotes by Baruch Halpern
#8. I ran through the manuscript in the space of a day, much as one might pick compulsively at a box of chocolates. It was simply too provocative to put down. Has the potential of being highly influential inside the field and among an informed public. #Quote by Baruch Halpern
Picks quotes by Sebastian Thrun
#9. I used to tell my graduate students at Stanford, 'Don't worry about what job you have to pick because your job picks you. Let your job pick you. Find something you are passionate about. Then when you are passionate, be persistent. Just keep doing it for a while because progress is always hard work. It never rests in ideas.' #Quote by Sebastian Thrun
Picks quotes by J.R. Ward

Picks quotes by Suzy Menkes

Picks quotes by Jodee Blanco
#14. You don't get to pick who you are in this life, but you can decide what you become. #Quote by Jodee Blanco
Picks quotes by Ellen Bass
#15. The Aftermath

When the fierce pure pleasure
has clawed through, ripped open
my tent of separateness,
I lay in my lover's arms, weeping
and exposed. I can't help seeing

my sister, new widow
whose heart hangs
heavy, a side of beef
in the ice box of her chest.
I imagine her entering
a bedroom like this, maples
flaming beyond the window
against a perfectly useless blue sky.

And then my mother-in-law
stops at the library on the way home
from her husband's funeral,
picks up the book they've been holding.
It sits in the passenger seat
while she stares at the windshield, stunned,
a bird flown into glass.

Even my friend whose wife hasn't died yet
appears in this sex-drenched air. Tears
pool in the shallows under his eyes.
If his soul were a tin can, it would be sliced,
the thick soup leaking out.

The night is soaked with suffering.
My dumb body, sprung open, can't tell
the difference between this blaze of pleasure
and the sorrow it drags in.
As I gaze out into the gathering darkness
it seems I almost comprehend
the mystery, glimpse the water of life
pouring through my form into theirs,
theirs back to mine, misery and ecstasy
swirled like the blue white planet
seen from space,

but it lasts less than a moment--
the arms of my own dear one
haul me back into my #Quote by Ellen Bass
Picks quotes by Rahki
#16. I like so many different genres of music that I guess it would be hard for me to pick one person who inspires me when so many people inspire me to make good music. #Quote by Rahki
Picks quotes by Barbara Woodhouse
#17. Dogs understand your moods and your thoughts, and if you are thinking unpleasant things about your dog, he will pick it up and be downhearted. #Quote by Barbara Woodhouse
Picks quotes by Bob Dylan
#18. You say you're looking for someone who'll pick you up each time you fall, to gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call, a lover your life and nothing more. But it ain't me, babe. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Picks quotes by Patricia MacLachlan
#19. Melinda Pratt rides city bus number twelve to her cello lesson, wearing her mother's jean jacket and only one sock. Hallo, world, says Minna. Minna often addresses the world, sometimes silently, sometimes out loud. Bus number twelve is her favorite place for watching, inside and out. The bus passes cars and bicycles and people walking dogs. It passes store windows, and every so often Minna sees her face reflection, two dark eyes in a face as pale as a winter dawn. There are fourteen people on the bus today. Minna stands up to count them. She likes to count people, telephone poles, hats, umbrellas, and, lately, earrings. One girl, sitting directly in front of Minna, has seven earrings, five in one ear. She has wisps of dyed green hair that lie like forsythia buds against her neck.

There are, Minna knows, a king, a past president of the United States, and a beauty queen on the bus. Minna can tell by looking. The king yawns and scratches his ear with his little finger. Scratches, not picks. The beauty queen sleeps, her mouth open, her hair the color of tomatoes not yet ripe. The past preside of the United States reads Teen Love and Body Builder's Annual.

Next to Minna, leaning against the seat, is her cello in its zippered canvas case. Next to her cello is her younger brother, McGrew, who is humming. McGrew always hums. Sometimes he hums sentences, though most often it comes out like singing. McGrew's teachers do not enjoy McGrew answering questions in hu #Quote by Patricia MacLachlan
Picks quotes by Robert Fulghum
#20. One of the very few reasons I had any respect for my mother when I was thirteen was because she would reach into the sink with her bare hands - bare hands - and pick up that lethal gunk and drop it into the garbage. To top that, I saw her reach into the wet garbage bag and fish around in there looking for a lost teaspoon. Bare hands - a kind of mad courage. #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Picks quotes by Milan Kundera
#21. When I described Madame de T's night, I recalled the well-known equation from one of the first chapters of the textbook of existential mathematics: the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting. From that equation we can deduce various corrollaries, for instance this one: our period is given over to the demon of speed, and that is the reason it so easily forgets its own self. Now I would reverse that statement and say: our period is obsessed by the desire to forget, and it is to fulfill that desire that it gives over to the demon of speed; it picks up the pace to show us that it no longer wishes to be remembered; that it is tired of itself; sick of itself; that it wants to blow out the tiny trembling flame of memory. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Picks quotes by Katharine Hepburn
#22. You don't pick who you fall in love with. There are so few people to love. It's hard for one adult to even like another. Almost impossible. #Quote by Katharine Hepburn
Picks quotes by Bob Dylan
#23. Every singer has three or four or five techniques, and you can force them together in different combinations. Some of the techniques you discard along the way, and pick up others. But you do need them. It's just like anything. You have to know certain things about what you're doing that other people don't know. Singing has to do with techniques and how many you use at the same time. One alone doesn't work. There's no point to going over three. But you might interchange them whenever you feel like it. It's a bit like alchemy. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Picks quotes by T. J. MacGregor
#24. It was Tark's experience that TV addicts were usually addicted to something else as well. Food, booze, drugs, sex, money, take your pick. #Quote by T. J. MacGregor
Picks quotes by Emma Roberts
#25. Love is not necessarily about grand gestures. It can be the little things, like someone knows you like a certain food so they pick it up for you. Stuff like that is sweet. It's little things that are nice and thoughtful that you can do every day. #Quote by Emma Roberts
Picks quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#26. It hasn't been easy to find American citizens who are willing to pick fruit in 110 degree weather. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Picks quotes by Veronica Roth
#27. It's not a perfect situation. But when you have to choose between two bad options, you pick the one that saves the people you love and believe in most. You just do. Okay? #Quote by Veronica Roth
Picks quotes by Brooke Fraser
#28. People aren't problems to be fixed. People are people, for us to walk alongside and journey with and help pick up the pieces with and, when they drop them again, to get back down and help them pick them up again. And that's real love - without condition and without expectation. #Quote by Brooke Fraser
Picks quotes by Babe Ruth
#29. The most important thing that a young athlete must do it pick the right sport. Not one that they like just a little bit, but one that they love. Because,if they don't really love their sport, they won't work as hard as they should. Me? I loved to hit. #Quote by Babe Ruth
Picks quotes by Robin Williams
#30. Whenever a big white man picks up a banjo, my cheeks tighten. #Quote by Robin Williams
Picks quotes by John Elkington
#31. The biggest weakness of the green-consumer movement, always, is that we tend to pick the easy-to-do things because that's where we can most readily engage people. It doesn't cost them very much to switch products or whatever it happens to be. #Quote by John Elkington
Picks quotes by Chris Tucker
#32. I think real life reflects your movies. In your life, you pick stuff that influences what movie roles you wanna pick. I think if you've got an interesting life, you wanna do interesting movies about interesting things. #Quote by Chris Tucker
Picks quotes by Alan Shearer
#33. Lampard picks his head up and knocks it out to the wing. #Quote by Alan Shearer
Picks quotes by J. B. Smoove
#34. We came here to pick up chicks, not talk about dicks. #Quote by J. B. Smoove
Picks quotes by Dave Dravecky
#35. All you have to do is pick up a baseball. It begs to you: throw me. If you took a year to design an object to hurl, you'd end up with that little spheroid small enough to nestle in your fingers but big enough to have some heft, lighter than a rock but heavier than a hunk of wood. Its even, neat stitching, laced into the leather's slippery white surface, gives your fingers a purchase. A baseball was made to throw. It's almost irresistible. #Quote by Dave Dravecky
Picks quotes by Justin Theroux
#36. I haven't had a chance to pick up a good book in a long time, because I've been either reading scripts or learning them or writing them. And so, by the time the day is done, I usually just want to click on The Bachelor and fall asleep. But I gravitate toward biographies and things like that. #Quote by Justin Theroux
Picks quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#37. Do you see, Arren, how an act is not, as young men think, like a rock that one picks up and throws, and it hits or misses, and that's the end of it. When that rock is lifted, the earth is lighter; the hand that bears it is heavier. When it is thrown, the circuits of the stars respond, and where it strikes or falls the universe is changed. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Picks quotes by Robert Goolrick
#38. I know that I am not the only person who is alone in the world. I know that others sorrow in the night. That others pick up a razor and slice into their own skin, with greater or lesser success. I know that others look at their lives and see only silent failure and disconsolation, feeding the cat, checking their email, doing the crossword. I know that I am not the only person to have lived a life like mine. I am aware. (212) #Quote by Robert Goolrick
Picks quotes by Ilona Andrews
#39. I'll call you," he repeated.
"If you call me, I won't pick up the phone."
"You will wait by the phone for my call, and when it rings, you will pick it up and you will speak to me in a civil manner. If you don't know how, ask someone. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Picks quotes by Jenny Han
#40. It doesn't work like that. You don't just pick your song. The song picks you. Like the Sorting Hat. #Quote by Jenny Han
Picks quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#41. Whether your name is (Lou) Gehrig or (Cal) Ripken, (Joe) DiMaggio or (Jackie) Robinson, or that of some youngster who picks up his bat or puts on his glove, you are challenged by the game of baseball to do your very best day in and day out. That's all I've ever tried to do. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Picks quotes by David Levithan
#42. Then he picks up the first book and holds it so Peter can read the title.
I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This

Peter quiets. Watches as Neil holds up the books one by one.

Just Listen
Stay
You're the One That I Want
So Much Closer
Where I Want to Be
The Difference Between You and Me
Positively
Matched

Keep Holding On

When Neil is through, Peter smiles and holds up his hand, gesturing Neil to wait there, to not say a word. He picks out two books from the YA section, then runs to the fiction section for a third. He is still smiling when he returns to Neil and shows his selections one by one.

Take a Bow
A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You
Keep Holding On #Quote by David Levithan
Picks quotes by Ann Patchett
#43. Isn't often the past picks up the phone and calls, affording the opportunity to reconsider personal history in a way that could have saved countless thousands of dollars in therapy had I been inclined to go. I #Quote by Ann Patchett
Picks quotes by Ned Vizzini
#44. Do you know about lock picking?"
"I'm sure it's like sex."
"I'm sure it's not like sex."
"How would you know? Everything's like sex. It's the universal metaphor. To pick a lock, let me guess, you have to go slow at first, but then you have to pull off some fancy moves, and you have to stay concentrated, and you have to stick something in something, right? #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Picks quotes by Alain Ducasse
#45. My son, Arzhel, is two, and he eats vegetables twice a day. We have a vegetable garden on our farm in the Southwest, and he gets two baskets, one over each arm, and says, 'Garden, Papa!' and then he eats what he picks. #Quote by Alain Ducasse
Picks quotes by Phoebe Cates

Picks quotes by Brad Meltzer
#48. On the day my daughter was born, I started writing a book for her. The plan was that, over the course of her life, I'd fill it with advice on how to be a strong woman. But along the way, I got caught up in the stories of Amelia Earhart, Sally Ride, and so many others. So how do you pick the best heroes for your kids? #Quote by Brad Meltzer
Picks quotes by Jess Walter
#49. And it's a life with no shortage of moments to recommend it, a life that picks up speed like a boulder rolling down a hill, easy and natural and comfortable, and yet beyond control somehow; it all happens so fast, you wake a young man and at lunch are middle-aged and by dinner you can imagine your death. #Quote by Jess Walter
Picks quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#50. My thought is, if you're a book lover, you're going to enjoy winning a book even if it's not something you'd ordinarily pick up on your own. It's a chance to expand your horizons a little. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Picks quotes by Natalie Clifford Barney
#51. Hero worship has died with heroes, and if someone bows down today, it is to pick up something. #Quote by Natalie Clifford Barney
Picks quotes by George Orwell
#52. For if in careless summer days
In groves of Ashtaroth we whored,
Repentant now, when winds blow cold,
We kneel before our rightful lord;
The lord of all, the money-god,
Who rules us blood and hand and brain,
Who gives the roof that stops the wind,
And, giving, takes away again;
Who spies with jealous, watchful care,
Our thoughts, our dreams, our secret ways,
Who picks our words and cuts our clothes,
And maps the pattern of our days;
Who chills our anger, curbs our hope,
And buys our lives and pays with toys,
Who claims as tribute broken faith,
Accepted insults, muted joys;
Who binds with chains the poet's wit,
The navvy's strength, the soldier's pride,
And lays the sleek, estranging shield
Between the lover and his bride. #Quote by George Orwell
Picks quotes by Lama Surya Das
#53. I've also learned that you don't always get to pick the people with whom you travel the journey. You sometimes may think you do, but don't be deceived. And the corollary of that - and this was my real lesson - is that you start to realize that you can love even the people you don't like and must love and help everyone. #Quote by Lama Surya Das
Picks quotes by David Simon
#54. Eventually, someone is going to pick up a brick. #Quote by David Simon

Picks quotes by Louis L'Amour

Picks quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#57. Everytime, he breaks your heart. And everytime, he expects me to pick up the pieces. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Picks quotes by Paul McDonald
#58. I sing both in my shower and in my car, mostly in my car, because I have this weird thing - whenever I'm singing to the radio - my friends kind of hate it - but I pick out the harmonies in my head, and I'm singing the harmonies to the tracks and I'm jamming it out. #Quote by Paul McDonald
Picks quotes by Sparky Anderson
#59. I'm beginning to see Brooks [Robinson] in my sleep. If I dropped a paper plate, he'd pick it up on one hop and throw me out at first. #Quote by Sparky Anderson

Picks quotes by Tinsel Korey
#62. Kristen is really focused and really quiet, as an actress. She just does her thing, but she's cool. I like her. I know a lot of people have mixed comments about her, but I think she's a rad person. She's just focused on what she's doing, as an actress, and she wants to pick the right roles, and she's committed to her craft. She's really cool. We got along. There weren't any tensions or anything. #Quote by Tinsel Korey
Picks quotes by Joelle Charbonneau
#63. Things don't always work out the way we hope. You just have to pick yourself up and find a new direction to go in. #Quote by Joelle Charbonneau
Picks quotes by Joe Biden
#64. One of the reasons to pick the cancer effort is to demonstrate to people that there's not much beyond our capacity. It will take time, but if we focus, if we narrow down where the bottle necks are and we move, there's never been a problem we can't solve. #Quote by Joe Biden
Picks quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#65. I really do miss playing basketball. I don't play a lot of pick-up games. But I do like using basketball as a form of cross training. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee

He picks up a copy of Must Love Dogs from the display. His five dogs are waiting for him in his car. He turns the book over and sees it's about a big Irish family. His wife, Diana Meehan, is from a big Irish family. #Quote by Claire Cook
Picks quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#67. What we see here (and in our lives) is that love inspires what the law demands - the law prescribes good works, but only grace can produce them. Gratitude, generosity, honesty, compassion, acts of mercy, and self-sacrifice (all requirements of the law) spring unsummoned from a forgiven heart. This is how God works on us. He picks us, the least deserving, out of the crowd, insists upon being in a relationship with us, and creates in us a new heart, miraculously capable of pleasing Him. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Picks quotes by Nora Roberts
#68. Mary Stewart will always be my goddess. I can pick up one of her early books - one I've read a dozen times - and still slide right into the story. #Quote by Nora Roberts

helps him get through the day #Quote by Scott Adams
Picks quotes by Tom Brady
#71. I think any man who lets a woman pick what he should wear ... I mean, you gotta draw the line somewhere as a man. I see these guys, 'My wife told me to wear this!' And I just shake my head. #Quote by Tom Brady
Picks quotes by Jack Abramoff
#72. A senator will come off Capitol Hill and they'll be barred from two years from lobbying in the Senate. So they'll pick the phone up and they'll call their buddy, the senator, their old buddies, and they'll say, 'Listen, I'm here at this law firm now. I can't lobby you, but my new partner, Jack, can lobby you.' #Quote by Jack Abramoff
Picks quotes by Mehmet Oz
#73. Most food you drop is still perfectly edible. If it was in your eyesight the whole time, you can pick it up and eat it. #Quote by Mehmet Oz
Picks quotes by Anna Deavere Smith
#74. I think some of our most talented people are not going to pick the arts as a way that they're going to spend their lives. #Quote by Anna Deavere Smith
Picks quotes by Piers Anthony
#75. Here's a secret: fictive text doesn't necessarily flow easily. Most of the time it's more like cutting a highway through a mountain. You just have to keep working with your pick, chipping away at the rock, making slow progress. #Quote by Piers Anthony

#76. The same computers that make it impossible for you to cheat on your income tax can ensure that the blood of your group is in the ambulance that picks you up from a car smash. #Quote by John Brunner

Picks quotes by Yoweri Museveni

Picks quotes by Cassandra Clare
#79. Why, oh why, had Jace picked a fight with a pack of wolves? What had possessed him? Then again, it was Jace. He'd pick a fight with a Mack truck if the urge took him.
-Clary, pg.40- #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Picks quotes by Kevin Eubanks
#80. In most places that are rich in guitar culture, everyone uses their fingers, like in Spain or Africa. In Japan there are string instruments played that way. It is not until you get in the States that you find people using picks. #Quote by Kevin Eubanks
Picks quotes by Fred Beck
#81. If you pick up a golfer and hold it close to your ear, like a conch shell, and listen, you will hear an alibi. #Quote by Fred Beck
Picks quotes by Anonymous
#82. (Colds and flus aren't spread by drinking from a sick person's glass. They're spread by touching it. One person's finger leaves virus particles on the glass; the next person's picks them up and transfers them to the respiratory tract via an eye-rub or nose-pick.) #Quote by Anonymous
Picks quotes by Kristin Hannah
#83. To make real friends you have to put yourself out there. Sometimes people will let you down, but you can't let that stop you. If you get hurt, you just pick yourself up, dust off your feelings, and try again. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Picks quotes by Jenna Dewan

Picks quotes by Brian Greene
#87. When you buy a jacket, you pick the size to ensure it fits. Similarly, we live in a universe in which the amount of dark energy fits our biological make-up. If the amount of dark energy were substantially different from what we've measured, the environmental conditions would be inhospitable to our form of life. #Quote by Brian Greene
Picks quotes by Frederick Lenz
#88. If you had to pick between one or the other, I can't say which one is better; but I would certainly say, in my orientation, the light of samadhi is all-pervasive. Samadhi will free you. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Picks quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#89. Because I readily absorb ideas from every source - frequently starting where the last person left off - I never pick up an item without thinking of how I might improve it. #Quote by Thomas A. Edison
Picks quotes by Bob Kersee
#90. It's a great feeling as a coach to see your athlete run well, hearing the oohs and aahs as she picks people off. #Quote by Bob Kersee
Picks quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#91. With the palms zipping past and the big sun burning down on the road ahead, I had a flash of something I hadn't felt since my first months in Europe - a mixture of ignorance and a loose, "what the hell" kind of confidence that comes on a man when the wind picks up and he begins to move in a hard straight line toward an unknown horizon. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Picks quotes by Adam Carolla
#92. The truth is we're all probably more creative than we realize, except we spend our lives watching TV or reading somebody else's book. We never pick up a brush and stand in front of our own easel. #Quote by Adam Carolla
Picks quotes by Taylor Hanson
#93. You never get to pick how you get pinned and how people perceive you. #Quote by Taylor Hanson
Picks quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#94. How do we create beauty in a broken world? How do we create a view of sustainability in an economy that is crashing? How do we reconfigure our lives, how do we pick up the pieces and create a meaningful life? So, yes, we have a different form of leadership but the questions remain the same. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Picks quotes by Richard Dawkins
#95. I hope nobody is seriously suggesting that we get our morals from scripture because if we did we'd be stoning people for working on the Sabbath or switching on a light on the Sabbath. So the point is that you can find good bits of the Bible but you have to cherry-pick, you have reject the nasty bits and pick the nice bits. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Picks quotes by Vito Acconci
#96. I can pick out people in this city to follow. I can be in a show at the Museum of Modern Art, my space in the Museum of Modern Art is my mailbox, my mail is delivered there. Whenever I want mail, I have to go through this city to get my mail. #Quote by Vito Acconci
Picks quotes by Libba Bray
#97. The wind picks up. It sends leaves scurrying for cover until a softer breeze blows through, settling them down again as if to say, Shhh, there, there, it's all right. One leaf still dances in the air. It spins higher and higher, defying gravity and logic, stretching for something just out of reach. It shall have to fall, of course. Eventually. But for now, I hold my breath, willing it to keep going, taking comfort in its struggle. #Quote by Libba Bray
Picks quotes by Zohreh Ghahremani
#98. God sure picks the finest flowers. #Quote by Zohreh Ghahremani

Picks quotes by Mary Lou Retton
#101. Training for the Olympics was much easier than balancing my life now! When practice was over, there was time for me. But with four kids and a career, I have no downtime. When I'm not on the road, I finish my workday at 2:30 p.m. Then I pick the kids up from school and they get 100 percent Mommy, not part Mommy and part Mary Lou Retton. #Quote by Mary Lou Retton

#102. Volleyball rules are simple. If it is on the floor, pick it up and get it into the air. If it is in the air, keep it off the floor. - #Quote by John Kessel
Picks quotes by Judi Dench
#103. I get sillier as I get older, so I don't know what wisdom means. I can only pass on something that I've been acquainted with and let whomever it is pick the bones out of it #Quote by Judi Dench
Picks quotes by Rachel Caine
#104. Myrnin turned away to pick up his Ben Franklin spectacles, balanced them on his nose, and looked over them to say,
Don't do drugs. I feel I ought to say that. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Picks quotes by Joanna Lumley
#105. I've got lots of good friends. I could have affairs. I can read a book all night, put the cat on the end of the bed. I can pick up my passport and go to France. I don't have to ask anybody. #Quote by Joanna Lumley
Picks quotes by Louis Kronenberger
#106. It is disgusting to pick your teeth; what is vulgar is to use a gold toothpick. #Quote by Louis Kronenberger
Picks quotes by Eric Schmidt
#107. This is a common refrain you hear in Silicon Valley: the CEO who picks up the stack of newspapers outside the front door, the founder who wipes the counters. With these actions, the leaders demonstrate their egalitarian natures - we're all in this together and none of us are above the menial tasks that need to get done. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Picks quotes by John McPhee
#108. From seaport to seaport, papers accumulate on the captain's desk. "Paperwork has become the bane of this job," he says. "If a ship doesn't have a good copying machine, it isn't seaworthy. The more ports, the more papers. South American paperwork is worse than the paperwork anywhere else in the world but the Arab countries and Indonesia." Deliberately, he allows the pile on his desk to rise until a deep roll on a Pacific swell throws it to the deck and scatters it from bulkhead to bulkhead. This he interprets as a signal that the time has come to do paperwork. The paper carpet may be an inch deep, but he leaves it where it fell. Bending over, he picks up one sheet. He deals with it: makes an entry, writes a letter - does whatever it requires him to do. Then he bends over and picks up another sheet. This goes on for a few days until, literally, he has cleared his deck. The #Quote by John McPhee
Picks quotes by Lisa See
#109. No one picks a friend for us; we come together by choice. We are not tied together through ceremony or the responsibility to create a son; we tie ourselves together through moments. The spark when we first meet. Laughter and tears shared. Secrets packed away to be treasured, hoarded, and protected. The wonder that someone can be so different from you and yet still understand your heart in a way no one else will. #Quote by Lisa See
Picks quotes by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
#110. But to make the intangible tangible, to pick the emotion out of the air and make it true for others, is both the blessing and the curse of the writer, for the thing between book covers is never as beautiful as the thing he imagined. #Quote by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Picks quotes by Sasha Grey
#111. It's so easy to pick up a camera, white balance, and shoot people having sex, but I don't think there's anything very interesting about it. You might get off, but that's it. #Quote by Sasha Grey
Picks quotes by Sue Harrison
#112. I gathered his words like an old woman who picks up spilled beads, and his slowness gave me opportunity to consider the light and color and life in each. #Quote by Sue Harrison
Picks quotes by Larry David
#113. I once stopped to pick up a girl, and then there was this creepy-looking guy standing behind the bushes waiting to jump out and get in, too. So I just quickly drove away. #Quote by Larry David
Picks quotes by Jon Fishman
#114. Led Zeppelin was pretty much what made me pick up drum sticks. #Quote by Jon Fishman
Picks quotes by Tim McGraw
#115. I'm a private guy, and you don't want to be out there preaching to people. But faith leads you in the decisions you make. You don't always pick the right path, but it's there in your conscience. #Quote by Tim McGraw
Picks quotes by Michelle Ryan
#116. I toned down my accent at school; otherwise, people would pick on me. #Quote by Michelle Ryan
Picks quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#117. I believe every person has a guardian spirit or angel. They assist us in the transition between life and death and they also help us pick our parents before we are born. #Quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Picks quotes by Jandy Nelson
#118. We breathe and breathe and breathe together. She takes my hand and I think how otters sleep floating on their backs in water, holding hands exactly like this, so they don't drift apart in the night.
After a while, she picks up her fist. I do the same.

Picks quotes by Veronica Roth
#119. I open my eyes and for the first time stare openly at my own reflection. My heart rate picks up as I do, like I am breaking the rules and will be scolded for it. It will be difficult to break the habits of thinking Abnegation instilled in me, like tugging a single thread from a complex work of embroidery. But I will find new habits, new thoughts, new rules. I will become something else.
... Looking at myself now isn't like seeing myself for the first time; it's like seeing someone else for the first time. Beatrice was a girl I saw in stolen moments at the mirror, who kept quiet at the dinner table. This is someone whose eyes claim mine and don't release me; this is Tris. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Picks quotes by Bill Bruford
#120. I didn't write any music at all, and then, I remember Jon Anderson being very insistent saying that there were two kinds of musicians: the ones who wrote music and the ones who didn't. #Quote by Bill Bruford
Picks quotes by E.K. Johnston
#121. There's a moment when I know that I should scream. But screaming would be hard. And blackness would be easy. Black picks me. #Quote by E.K. Johnston
Picks quotes by Tina Turner
#122. Sometimes in a restaurant you'll see a lady dressed very nice, she picks up a menu or something ... a little fan is always a little bit nice. #Quote by Tina Turner
Picks quotes by Alain De Botton
#123. A great writer picks up on those things that matter. It's almost like their radar is attuned to the most significant moments. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Picks quotes by David Henry
#124. My friend goes through the wedding section of the Sunday paper looking at the brides-to-be and picks out a Dog-of-the-Week. I think that's cruel toward women. Myself, I look to see who shows the most cleavage. #Quote by David Henry
Picks quotes by Elizabeth Olsen
#125. I think part of that comes from time's passed, and she's been in an environment where training is part of the thing. It's not like we do a montage of her discovering her powers like in every X-Men film but yeah, there's no montage. But she does have these new abilities that we pick her up with. #Quote by Elizabeth Olsen
Picks quotes by Steven Spielberg
#126. Every movie you're going to forget that it's 3D whether it's widescreen or whatever it is, you're going to forget everything if the movie is working. If the movie doesn't work or if the movie generically doesn't work then immediately you start to pick apart whatever has contributed to that. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Picks quotes by David O. Russell
#127. What we assert, very often can become our reality. To some degree, everybody can try to shape and control their fate. Everybody picks an identity. #Quote by David O. Russell
Picks quotes by Jeffrey M. Schwartz
#128. Because the observer's only freedom is the choice of which question to pose (Shall I look up at the sky?), it is here that the mind of the observer has a chance to affect the dynamics of the brain. An examination of the mathematics, Stapp argued, shows that "the conscious intentions of a human being [reflected in the choices he makes about what question to put to nature] can influence the activities of his brain....Each conscious event picks out from the multitude of...possibilities that comprise the quantum brain the subensemble that is compatible with the conscious experience." The physical event reduces the state of the brain to that branch of it that is compatible with the particular experience or observation. #Quote by Jeffrey M. Schwartz
Picks quotes by Nayomi Munaweera
#129. They hate me because I am the worst thing possible. I am the bad mother.

But here's a secret: in America there are no good mothers. They simply don't exist. Always, there are a thousand ways to fail at this singularly important job. There are failures of the body and failures of the heart. The woman who is unable to breastfeed is a failure. The woman who screams for the epidural is a failure. The woman who picks up her child late knows from the teacher's cutting glance that she is a failure. The woman who shares her bed with her baby has failed. The woman who steels herself and puts on noise-canceling earphones to erase the screaming of her child the next room has failed just as spectacularly. They must all hang their heads in guilt and shame because they haven't done it perfectly, and motherhood is, if anything, the assumption of perfection. #Quote by Nayomi Munaweera
Picks quotes by Georgia Nott
#130. It's nice to be able to let go of the reins sometimes and know that somebody you really trust is gonna pick them up as soon as you do. #Quote by Georgia Nott
Picks quotes by Theodore Zeldin
#131. The brain is full of lonely ideas, begging you to make some sense of them, to recognize them as interesting. The lazy brain just files them away in old pigeonholes, like a bureaucrat who wants an easy life. The lively brain picks and chooses and creates new works of art out of ideas. #Quote by Theodore Zeldin
Picks quotes by Joe
#132. In Prodigal Son, Christine Sutton has penned a tight, brutally honest portrait of a psychopath reminiscent of Theodore Sturgeon's 'Some of Your Blood'. This dark descent into the broken mind of Timothy Robert Shively will send chills down your back. Every word rings true, and every page is dark with menace. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up right now. You can thank me later. #Quote by Joe
Picks quotes by Sam Trammell
#133. I don't read a lot of magazines, but when I'm traveling, I'll pick up a copy of 'Vanity Fair' to read on the plane - it's like a full meal! The articles are so good, especially the crime stories. Browsing the Web is more like snacking - but I live on snacks. #Quote by Sam Trammell
Picks quotes by Christa McAuliffe
#134. NASA was going to pick a public school teacher to go into space, observe and make a journal about the space flight, and I am a teacher who always dreamed of going up into space. #Quote by Christa McAuliffe
Picks quotes by Tanya Tucker
#135. At one point, I didn't get out of bed for, I think, three months, and I went down to the bottom of the hill one day and I had to call somebody to get me to come back up - come pick me up because I couldn't physically walk up the hill. #Quote by Tanya Tucker
Picks quotes by Meister Eckhart
#136. Above thought is the intellect, which still seeks: it goes about looking, spies out here and there, picks up and drops. But above the intellect that seeks is another intellect which does not seek but stays in its pure, simple being, which is embraced in that light. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Picks quotes by Tracey Emin
#137. Art is like a lover whom you run away from but who comes back and picks you up. #Quote by Tracey Emin
Picks quotes by Ken Kesey
#138. A bluetick hound bays out there in the fog, running scared and lost because he can't see. No tracks on the ground but the one's he's making, and he sniffs in every direction with his cold red-rubber nose and picks up no scent but his own fear, fear burning down into him like steam. #Quote by Ken Kesey
Picks quotes by Evan Esar
#139. A man picks a wife about the same way an apple picks a farmer. #Quote by Evan Esar
Picks quotes by Susan May Warren
#140. So you made some bad choices. Some of God's best players were His imperfect, broken prodigals. In fact, iffy players are God's best picks. He specializes in short-tempered, reckless, flawed people to accomplish his plans. #Quote by Susan May Warren
Picks quotes by Elder Thaddeus Of Vitovnica
#141. Question: How can we consider created matter to be better than us if God has endowed us with a rational mind and has called us His sons?

Answer: If you place your hand over your heart and are entirely sincere with yourself, you will realize that you are indeed less than many created things. Look at the bee, how diligently it labors! It gives of itself without reserve, sparingly. The lifespan of a bee is a month and a half at the most. It often dies working, without going back to its home, the hive. And we? How we pity ourselves and spare ourselves! Or, look at the ant who is never tired of dragging a heavy burden. Even when its burden falls down, the ant patiently picks it up and goes on with its work. As for us, we give up immediately if things do not go the way we want them to! #Quote by Elder Thaddeus Of Vitovnica
Picks quotes by Snow Patrol
#142. I'm miles from where you are. I lay down on the cold ground, and I pray that something picks me up, and sets me down in your warm arms. #Quote by Snow Patrol
Picks quotes by Mandy Moore
#143. Stupid cupid you're a real mean guy, I'd like to pick your wings so you can't fly, I am in love and it's a crying shame, and I know that you're the one to blame, hey, hey set me free, stupid cupid, stop picking on me. #Quote by Mandy Moore
Picks quotes by Terry Pratchett
#144. This is called the theory of narrative causality and it means that a story, once started, takes a shape. It picks up all the vibrations of all the other workings of that story that have ever been. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Picks quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#145. In the distance, the battle rages still, moved on to other avenues and other victims. Hock Seng limps down the street. Bodies lie everywhere. He reaches an intersection and hobbles across, too tired to care about the risk of being caught in the open. At the far side, a man lies slumped against a wall, his bicycle lying beside him. Blood soaks his lap.

Hock Seng picks up the bicycle.

"That's mine," the man says.

Hock Seng pauses, studying the man. The man can barely keep his eyes open, yet still he clings to normalcy, to the idea that something like a bicycle can be owned. Hock Seng turns and wheels the bicycle down off the sidewalk. The man calls out again, "That's mine." But he doesn't stand and he doesn't do anything to stop Hock Seng as he swings a leg over the frame and sets his feet on the pedals.

If the man complains again, Hock Seng doesn't hear it. #Quote by Paolo Bacigalupi

Picks quotes by Eva LaRue
#148. I did not know there was any controversy. I don't get a lot of time to read the fan forums, etc. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to have more storylines. I was just so happy to step in and pick up some of the slack for Emily while she was pregnant. It was so important for Emily to concentrate on her health and the well-being of her baby. In the end ... she is a great mother and her baby is adorable. I did not realize there was any controversy. LOL! #Quote by Eva LaRue
Picks quotes by Richard Branson
#149. I will work day and night to avoid failure, but if I can't, I'll pick myself up the next day. The most important thing for entrepreneurs is not to be put off by failure. #Quote by Richard Branson
Picks quotes by Bill Gates
#150. If your goal is to make the world a better place, one thing you can do is pick a specific challenge that you really care about. Then, learn as much as you can about it and try to volunteer your time to help an organization that is working in this area. While you're doing that, look for creative new ways to use technology to tackle parts of the problem that you come in contact with. #Quote by Bill Gates
Picks quotes by Tim Winton
#151. The beachcomber goes looking for trouble, everything he finds is a sign of trouble. The writer is the same; without trouble he has nothing to work with, so he picks over the tide line, over the bits and pieces of people's lives with grim fascination. #Quote by Tim Winton
Picks quotes by Patsy Cline
#152. Mother would come and pick me up at work and take me wherever I could get a job. Mother didn't trust anybody with me. Usually we'd get home at 3 in the morning. #Quote by Patsy Cline
Picks quotes by Judith Martin
#153. Miss Manners does not mind explaining the finer points of gracious living, but she feels that anyone without the sense to pick up a potato chip and stuff it in their face should probably not be running around loose on the streets. #Quote by Judith Martin
Picks quotes by Kari Aguila
#154. Kate stops grinding the knife and begins to pass it over the length of the stone. Turning her wrist, she pulls the blade, swiping one side after the other, honing it to a fine edge. She wipes it dry with an old cloth and picks up a long piece of dark leather. One end of the strop she ties to the knob on the back of her chair, then holds it taught with her left hand. She counts in her head as she passes the blade over the length of the leather, flipping it at the bottom and the top of each pass. When she gets to twenty, she releases her hold on the strop and looks closely at the knife blade. Even in the dim light of the room, it shines. #Quote by Kari Aguila
Picks quotes by Graham Greene
#155. It's a pity people pick and choose what they learn from the Bible. #Quote by Graham Greene
Picks quotes by John C. Maxwell
#156. To Stay Focused in Life:
You can't know everyone
You can't do everything
You can't go everywhere
We have to pick and choose between good and a little bit better. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Picks quotes by Toni Morrison
#157. But it wasn't all bad. Sometimes things wasn't all bad. He used to come home easing into bed sometimes, not too drunk. I make out like I'm asleep, 'casue it's late, and he taken three dollars out of my pocketbook that morning or something. I hear him breathing, but I don't look around. I can see in my mind's eye his black arms thrown back behind his head, the muscles like a great big peach stones sanded down, with veins running like little swollen rivers down his arms. Without touching him I be feeling those ridges on the tips of my fingers. I sees the palms of his hands calloused to granite, and the long fingers curled up and still. I think about the thick, knotty hair on his chest, and the two big swells his breast muscles make. I want to rub my face hard in his chest and feel the hair cut my skin. I know just where the hair growth slacks out-just above his navel- and how it picks up again and spreads out. Maybe he'll shift a little, and his leg will touch me, or I feel his flank just graze my behind. I don't move even yet. Then he lift his head, turn over, and put his hand on my waist. If I don't move, he'll move his hand over to pull and knead my stomach. Soft and slow-like. I still don't move, because I don't want him to stop. I want to pretend sleep and have him keep rubbing my stomach. Then he will lean his head down and bite my tit. Then I don't want him to rub my stomach anymore. I want him to put his hand between my legs. I pretend to wake up, and turn to him, but n #Quote by Toni Morrison

Picks quotes by William Friedkin
#163. Every time you run a 35mm print, it picks up scratches. It picks up dirt. Sometimes it breaks, and you have to re-splice it. You lose frames. This doesn't happen with digital or Blu-ray. I think that's great. Because I love the new media. #Quote by William Friedkin
Picks quotes by Miranda Leek
#164. I really enjoy playing the piano. I took lessons throughout middle school, but I had to drop the lessons. I actually got too busy, but I hope to pick up the lessons when I'm in college if I can. #Quote by Miranda Leek
Picks quotes by Keanu Reeves
#165. We are the sum of who we are. We pick certain things at certain moments that influenced us. #Quote by Keanu Reeves
Picks quotes by Arthur Hertzberg

Picks quotes by Paul Tough
#167. Optimists, by contrast, look for specific, limited, short-term explanations for bad events, and as a result, in the face of a setback, they're more likely to pick themselves up and try again. #Quote by Paul Tough
Picks quotes by Christopher Paolini
#168. What a strange expression said the herbalist who would compare themselves to chopped liver in the first place? If you have to to choose an organ why not pick a gallbladder or a thymus gland instead? Much more interesting than a liver. Or what about chopped t- #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Picks quotes by Roger Ebert
#169. Steve Coogan picks up enough to lecture an interviewer: This is a postmodern novel before there was any modernism to be post about. Later it's claimed that Tristram Shandy was No. 8 on the Observer's list of the greatest novels, which cheers everyone until they discover the list was chronological. #Quote by Roger Ebert

Picks quotes by Neil Gaiman

Picks quotes by Derek Webb

Picks quotes by Jennie Garth

Picks quotes by Laura McBride
#177. It all matters. That someone turns out the lamp, picks up the windblown wrapper, says hello to the invalid, pays at the unattended lot, listens to the repeated tale, folds the abandoned laundry, plays the game fairly, tells the story honestly, acknowledges help, gives credit, says good night, resists temptation, wipes the counter, waits at the yellow, makes the bed, tips the maid, remembers the illness, congratulates the victor, accepts the consequences, takes a stand, steps up, offers a hand, goes first, goes last, chooses the small portion, teaches the child, tends to the dying, comforts the grieving, removes the splinter, wipes the tear, directs the lost, touches the lonely, is the whole thing. What is most beautiful is least acknowledged. What is worth dying for is barely noticed. #Quote by Laura McBride
Picks quotes by Nicholas Carr
#178. You can take a book to the beach without worrying about sand getting in its works. You can take it to bed without being nervous about it falling to the floor should you nod off. You can spill coffee on it. You can sit on it. You can put it down on a table, open to the page you're reading, and when you pick it up a few days later it will still be exactly as you left it. You never have to be concerned about plugging a book into an outlet or having its battery die. #Quote by Nicholas Carr

Picks quotes by Anne Sexton
#182. After Auschwitz"

Anger,
as black as a hook,
overtakes me.
Each day,
each Nazi
took, at 8: 00 A.M., a baby
and sauteed him for breakfast
in his frying pan.

And death looks on with a casual eye
and picks at the dirt under his fingernail.

Man is evil,
I say aloud.
Man is a flower
that should be burnt,
I say aloud.
Man
is a bird full of mud,
I say aloud.

And death looks on with a casual eye
and scratches his anus.

Man with his small pink toes,
with his miraculous fingers
is not a temple
but an outhouse,
I say aloud.
Let man never again raise his teacup.
Let man never again write a book.
Let man never again put on his shoe.
Let man never again raise his eyes,
on a soft July night.
Never. Never. Never. Never. Never.
I say those things aloud.

I beg the Lord not to hear. #Quote by Anne Sexton
Picks quotes by Jennette McCurdy
#183. I really cherish the memories I have of my trips. For some reason, when you travel, it's like your mind picks up on the fact that this is something uncharacteristic, so it tunes in more acutely and remembers better. #Quote by Jennette McCurdy
Picks quotes by Katie McGarry
#184. The kiss comes hotter and faster than before. Our lips move quickly, a hunger grows between us that can't seem to be quenched. There's a rhythm, a dance, and somehow, I know the steps. An instinct tells me to follow his lead, to explore even further, to touch.
My hands drift down his back and when I feel scorching skin near the hem of his shirt, I gasp for air. Isaiah moans, and his lips leave mine to travel along my throat. My heart picks up speed as my entire body becomes one live electrical current.
His tongue swirls against the sensitive skin right where my jaw meets my neck. I shiver and press my body closer to his. When he meets my lips again, Isaiah loops his arm around my waist and pulls me farther onto the bed. On our sides, his body heat penetrates past my clothes, past my skin, creating an inferno in my blood.
A sudden coldness causes my eyes to flash open. Kneeling beside me, Isaiah's hands go behind his head and he yanks off his shirt, tossing it to the floor. A flutter of excitement and nerves trembles in my stomach. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Picks quotes by Francine Prose
#185. But if I were asked to pick one constant, one quality that seems dependable, immutable, endlessly available, I'd say that it was intensity. For nothing in Sicily seems withheld, done half way, restrained or suppressed. There's nothing to correspond to say, the ironic, the cerebral remove at which a Frenchman might consider an idea or a question, or the Scandinavian distrust of the sloppy, emotive response. #Quote by Francine Prose
Picks quotes by Sean Penn
#186. When you act in a film, you're inevitably surrounded by people you didn't choose, right down to the set painter. I like being able to pick the family I'm waking up to in the morning that's going to make this group effort to tell a story that applies to what's interesting to me at that stage in my life. #Quote by Sean Penn
Picks quotes by Patti Smith

Picks quotes by David Macaulay
#189. Occasionally, I just need to escape from my work or be reminded of the comparative bliss of my own life, so I pick up a novel. #Quote by David Macaulay
Picks quotes by Bruce Campbell
#190. I'm sick of over-trained heroes. I'm really bored with that. Guys that are just ripped to shreds and full of skills. That's boring me. Give me the mechanic that picks up a weapon. Now I'm interested. That's my hero. #Quote by Bruce Campbell
Picks quotes by Dash
#191. I distrust a close-mouthed man. He generally picks the wrong time to talk and says the wrong things. Talking's something you can't do judiciously unless you keep in practice. #Quote by Dash

Picks quotes by Tim Burton
#195. It's very nice to have someone that you can have a completely abstract conversation with and leave the room, feel like everything's fine, and then realize that if you pick it apart, you have absolutely no idea what either of you said. #Quote by Tim Burton
Picks quotes by Mindy Kaling
#196. I want to say one last thing, and it's important. Though I am a generally happy person who feels comfortable in my skin, I do beat myself up because I am influenced by a societal pressure to be thin. All the time. I feel it the same way anybody who picks up a magazine and sees Keira Knightley's elegantly bony shoulder blades poking out of a backless dress does. I don't know if I've ever seen my shoulder blades once. Honestly, I'm dubious that any part of my body could be so sharp and firm as to be described as a "blade." I feel it when I wake up in the morning and try on every single pair of my jeans and everything looks bad and I just want to go back to sleep. But my secret is: even though I wish I could be thin, and that I could have the ease of lifestyle that I associate with being thin, I don't wish for it with all of my heart. Because my heart is reserved for way more important things. #Quote by Mindy Kaling

"Don't," I warn him.

"Dry," he croaks. "Tongue ... shriveling."
I shake my head, picking up the jar. "It's dehydrated. You're supposed to add water. Good thing you're mostly made of water."
He tries to say something. Brown powder dusts his shirt.
"Also," I tell him, "that's decaf. #Quote by Holly Black
