Plot Investment quotes by Maria Semple
#1. 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette' is an epistolary novel - one told in letters. I had no idea how much fun it would be, puzzling together the plot with letters and documents. #Quote by Maria Semple
Plot Investment quotes by Jesse Eisenberg
#2. In 'Zombieland,' it was such a freewheeling plot it almost didn't matter what the characters were doing scene to scene as long as there was a consistent banter. #Quote by Jesse Eisenberg
Plot Investment quotes by Oliver Stone
#3. Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply transferred from one perception to another. This painting here. I bought it 10 years ago for 60 thousand dollars. I could sell it today for 600. The illusion has become real and the more real it becomes, the more desperately they want it. #Quote by Oliver Stone
Plot Investment quotes by Nan Fairbrother
#4. Every search has its own momentum. It is why a search makes such an excellent plot for a film or story. #Quote by Nan Fairbrother
Plot Investment quotes by Todd B. LaBerge
#5. I am frightened at the prospect of how much I might love you, because I know the price it brings, and just thinking of you has begun the investment process within my heart. It would be easier to never invest at all, to hold all vulnerability close to my chest, not allowing anyone to enter my safe. But what a cruel thing it would be, to deny an opportunity to love a soul as beautiful as yours. I'm going to hope, and hope, and hope, until one day I do something. Maybe then, we'll be able to find that place that we have both wanted for so long. Maybe then, we'll have each other. I'm not reaching for stars anymore. I'm reaching for you, and honestly, that's far more beautiful than a night full of dancing flames. I am not good with words, but still my words dance out of chaos, forming something beautiful. #Quote by Todd B. LaBerge
Plot Investment quotes by Ben Bernanke
#6. Education - lifelong education for everyone - from toddlers to workers well advanced in their careers - is indeed an excellent investment for individuals and society as a whole. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Plot Investment quotes by Ray Bradbury
#7. Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Plot Investment quotes by John Muir
#8. He was one of the most sincere tree-lovers I ever knew. About twenty years before his death he made choice of a plot in the Yosemite cemetery on the north side of the Valley, not far from the Yosemite Fall, and selecting a dozen or so of seedling sequoias in the Mariposa grove he brought them to the Valley and planted them around the spot he had chosen for his last rest. The ground there is gravelly and dry; by careful watering he finally nursed most of the seedlings into good, thrifty trees, and doubtless they will long shade the grave of their blessed lover and friend. #Quote by John Muir
Plot Investment quotes by Jon Krakauer
#9. But it also demonstrates how difficult it is to correct a false belief after people have made an emotional investment in that belief being true. When our heroes turn out to be sleazebags, self-deception is easier than facing the facts. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Plot Investment quotes by Rupert Holmes
#10. A lot of my early career, I wrote story songs that had narratives, that had plots. #Quote by Rupert Holmes
Plot Investment quotes by Patty Smith
#11. A lot of (children's literature) beginners get bogged down by morals. A moral should never be driving the story. And a moral should never be confused with a plot. You can't preach to kids, and you can't talk down to them, either. It's amazing how they sense condescension. #Quote by Patty Smith
Plot Investment quotes by Louise J. Kaplan
#12. We humans, once we have become emotionally invested in a homeplace, a prized personal possession, or, especially, in another person, find it immensely difficult to give them up ... Because they were made at a time of life when we were utterly dependent on them, the love attachments of infancy have inordinate power over us, more than any other emotional investment. #Quote by Louise J. Kaplan
Plot Investment quotes by Andrea Jung
#13. There's obviously a correlation between an economically empowered woman and the investments she makes. That leads to her social and moral conscience for bettering her community. #Quote by Andrea Jung
Plot Investment quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#14. Investment that only goes to enrich an already wealthy elite bent on monopolizing both economic and political power cannot contribute toward egalite and justice
the foundation stones for a sound democracy. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Plot Investment quotes by Henry Miller
#15. You can forgive a young cunt anything. A young cunt doesn't have to have brains. They're better without brains. But an old cunt, even if she's brilliant, even if she's the most charming woman in the world, nothing makes any difference. A young cunt is an investment; an old cunt is a dead loss. All they can do for you is buy you things. But that doesn't put meat on their arms or juice between their legs. #Quote by Henry Miller
Plot Investment quotes by Brad Meltzer
#16. There is no better place to plot the death of a character than when you're miserable and working out. #Quote by Brad Meltzer
Plot Investment quotes by Marie Lu
#17. As a writer, I try to appeal to the 'elusive boy audience' the same way I try to appeal to everyone: I do the very best I can to create interesting characters, addictive plots, tons of conflict, believable settings, unexpected plot twists, intriguing beginnings, and satisfying endings. #Quote by Marie Lu
Plot Investment quotes by George Whitefield
#18. O poor New England! There is a deep laid plot against your civil and religious liberties, and they will be lost. Your golden days are at an end. You have nothing but trouble before you ... Your liberties will be lost. #Quote by George Whitefield
Plot Investment quotes by Dan Jenkins
#19. The maplewood flat-finished Martin had represented the most outrageous luxury in her life when she bought it in 1971 for four hundred dollars. But Lonnie Slocum assured her the Martin was a good investment, even if she never learned to play it better than an acid head who was into heavy metal. #Quote by Dan Jenkins
Plot Investment quotes by Eric Siegel
#20. Data matters. It's the very essence of what we care about. Personal data is not equivalent to a real person - it's much better. It takes no space, costs almost nothing to maintain, lasts forever, and is far easier to replicate and transport. Data is worth more than its weight in gold - certainly so, since data weighs nothing; it has no mass. Data about a person is not as valuable as the person, but since the data is so much cheaper to manage, it's a far better investment. Alexis Madrigal, senior editor at The Atlantic, points out that a user's data can be purchased for about half a cent, but the average user's value to the Internet advertising ecosystem is estimated at $1,200 per year. Data's value - its power, its meaning - is the very thing that also makes it sensitive. The more data, the more power. The more powerful the data, the more sensitive. So the tension we're feeling is unavoidable. #Quote by Eric Siegel
Plot Investment quotes by Peter Piot
#21. Investment in AIDS will be repaid a thousand-fold in lives saved and communities held together. #Quote by Peter Piot
Plot Investment quotes by Ira Bruce Nadel
#22. In many ways ... the completeness of biography, the achievement of its professionalization, is an ironic fiction, since no life can ever be known completely, nor would we want to know every fact about an individual. Similarly, no life is ever lived according to aesthetic proportions. The "plot" of a biography is superficially based on the birth, life and death of the subject; "character," in the vision of the author. Both are as much creations of the biographer, as they are of a novelist. We content ourselves with "authorized fictions. #Quote by Ira Bruce Nadel
Plot Investment quotes by Jose Mujica
#23. Businesses just want to increase their profits; it's up to the government to make sure they distribute enough of those profits so workers have the money to buy the goods they produce. It's no mystery - the less poverty, the more commerce. The most important investment we can make is in human resources. #Quote by Jose Mujica
Plot Investment quotes by Iain S. Thomas
#24. Your nerve endings
I know their plot
To attack
My never endings
Until we fall asleep
In each other's arms #Quote by Iain S. Thomas
Plot Investment quotes by Harvey Pekar
#25. I'm as big as snob as they come, but money is a terrible barometer of a person's worth. The standard I used is what a person is choosing to do with his life. So for me a struggling musician (someone dedicated to their craft, not some slacker) is much better than some lame investment banker. And the fact that she lied seemed like she was ashamed. She dismissed my anger as if I were overreacting. #Quote by Harvey Pekar
Plot Investment quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#26. Once we considered education a public expense; we know now that it is a public investment. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Plot Investment quotes by Mary Morris
#27. The late John Gardner once said that there are only two plots in all of literature. You go on a journey or a stranger comes to town. Since women, for many years, were denied the journey, they were left with only one plot in their lives --
to await the stranger. Indeed, there is essentially no picaresque tradition among women novelists. While the latter part of the twentieth century has seen a change of tendency, women's literature from Austen to Woolf is by and large a literature about waiting, usually for love. #Quote by Mary Morris
Plot Investment quotes by Frank Herbert
#28. When I was writing Dune there was no room in my mind for concerns about the book's success or failure. I was concerned only with the writing. Six years of research had preceded the day I sat down to put the story together, and the interweaving of the many plot layers I had planned required a degree of concentration I had never before experienced. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Plot Investment quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#29. Fortunately, there's another handy driver that has manifested itself throughout the history of cultures. The urge to want to gain wealth. That is almost as potent a driver as the urge to maintain your security. And that is how I view NASA going forward - as an investment in our economy. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Plot Investment quotes by Grace Napolitano
#30. For people who have for been putting their hard-earned money into the system for years, the president's idea would replace their safety net with a risky gamble with no assurance of a stable return of investment. #Quote by Grace Napolitano
Plot Investment quotes by Maggie Siff
#31. For me to get to work with a writer-director over time in developing a project - my investment feels much more profound. I know that whatever is on the other end I'm going to feel that much closer to. #Quote by Maggie Siff
Plot Investment quotes by Michael Lewis
#32. The moment Salomon Brothers demonstrated the potential gains to be had from turning an investment bank into a public corporation and leveraging its balance sheet with exotic risks, the psychological foundations of Wall Street shifted, from trust to blind faith. No investment bank owned by its employees would have leveraged itself 35:1, or bought and held $50 billion in mezzanine CDOs. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Plot Investment quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#33. Plot comes first. The plot is the archictecture of your novel. You wouldn't build a house without a plan. If I wrote without a plot, it would just be a pile of bricks. Characters are your servants. They must serve your plot. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Plot Investment quotes by Jeffery Deaver
#34. My books are primarily plot driven but the best plot in the world is useless if you don't populate them with characters that readers can care about. #Quote by Jeffery Deaver
Plot Investment quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#35. The first person who, having enclosed a plot of land, took it into his head to say this is mine and found people simple enough to believe him was the true founder of civil society. What crimes, wars, murders, what miseries and horrors would the human race have been spared, had some one pulled up the stakes or filled in the ditch and cried out to his fellow men: Do not listen to this imposter. You are lost if you forget that the fruits of the earth belong to all and the earth to no one! #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Plot Investment quotes by Barbara Corcoran
#36. I think of my business and investments as extension of my family. #Quote by Barbara Corcoran
Plot Investment quotes by Tracey Emin
#37. The idea that I'm going to have to sit down to write some fiction where I'm going to have to think of a plot would really scare me, because it would come out a mess. #Quote by Tracey Emin
Plot Investment quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#38. When we try to push the envelope, there are certain sectors of society that say this is a Zionist plot to sort of destabilize our country, or this is an American agenda. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Plot Investment quotes by Gordon Brown
#39. If people are persuaded of the need for education and the need to invest in education, they're also persuaded of the need not to waste that investment by having low-quality education but to have high-quality education. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Plot Investment quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#40. There is no more certain way to deter employment than to harass and penalize employers. There is no more certain way to keep wages low than to destroy every incentive to investment in new and more efficient machines and equipment. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Plot Investment quotes by A.A. Gill
#41. Celebrity is a national drama whose characters' parts and plots are written by the tabloids, gossip columnists, websites and interactive buttons. The famous don't actually have to turn up to their own lives at all. #Quote by A.A. Gill
Plot Investment quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#42. Character, I think, is the single most important thing in fiction. You might read a book once for its interesting plot - but not twice. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Plot Investment quotes by Tim Anderson
#43. Network Marketing allows anyone the opportunity, with little investment, to build their own residual income. #Quote by Tim Anderson
Plot Investment quotes by Bethany McLean
#44. The last and most painful irony is that the two longtime rival armies in the securitization market - the investment banks and the GSEs - would end up magnifying each other's sins rather than keeping each other in check. #Quote by Bethany McLean
Plot Investment quotes by Harrison Ford
#45. In relationships with a directors, I want to be able to give and take, and I can't name what it is: respect, energy, investment in the task, focus, humor, intelligence, but I always feel responsible for taking the money. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Plot Investment quotes by Paul J. Zak
#46. My research shows that improving the quality of education is a cost-free way to raise prosperity. it's cost-free because it reinforces so many of the other things we need to keep the virtuous cycle rolling that, ultimately, the increase in economic benefits far outstrips the cost of the investment. Education brings more people into the comfort zone of higher income, which increases trust, then causes people to demand better government, which further increases the trust, which further reduces inequality, which increases the pool of those who will get a good education. #Quote by Paul J. Zak
Plot Investment quotes by Jean Hanff Korelitz
#47. When you get right down to it, there's something uniquely satisfying in being gripped by a great plot, in begrudging whatever real-world obligations might prevent you from finding out what happens next. #Quote by Jean Hanff Korelitz
