Prime quotes by Saul Alinsky
#1. This book will not
contain any panacea or dogma; I detest and fear dogma." ...
"This is not an ideological book except insofar as argument for change,"...
"ideologies tend to be smelted into rigid dogmas claiming exclusive possession of the truth"...
" An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma. To begin with, he does not have a fixed truth. "...
" In the end he has one conviction - a belief that if people have the power to act, in the long run they will, most of the time, reach the right decisions.
I am not concerned if this faith in people is regarded as a prime truth and therefore a contradiction of what I have already written, for life is a story of contradictions. Believing in people, the radical has the job of organizing them so that they will have the power #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Prime quotes by Ludwig Quidde
#2. Some pacifists have carried the sound idea of the prime importance of security too far, to the point of declaring that any consideration of disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as eternal peace has not been attained. #Quote by Ludwig Quidde
Prime quotes by Ammon Shea
#3. Or we reference Winston Churchill, who was famously reported to have written "This is the kind of tedious/arrant nonsense up with which I will not put," in response to an overweening staffer having removed a preposition from some of his writing. (However, as with many quotes that are purported to have originated with the former prime minister of Great Britain, the author was someone other than Churchill).* #Quote by Ammon Shea
Prime quotes by T.H. White
#4. Lancelot and Guenever were sitting at the solar window. An observer of the present day, who knew the Arthurian legend only from Tennyson and people of that sort, would have been startled to see that the famous lovers were past their prime. We, who have learned to base our interpretation of love on the conventional boy-and-girl romance of Romeo and Juliet, would be amazed if we could step back into the Middle Ages - when the poet of chivalry could write about Man that he had 'en ciel un dieu, par terre une deesse'. Lovers were not recruited then among the juveniles and adolescents: they were seasoned people, who knew what they were about. In those days people loved each other for their lives, without the conveniences of the divorce court and the psychiatrist. They had a God in heaven and a goddess on earth - and, since people who devote themselves to godesses must exercise some caution about the ones to whom they are devoted, they neither chose them by the passing standards of the flesh alone, nor abandoned it lightly when the bruckle thing began to fail. #Quote by T.H. White
Prime quotes by Derek Landy
#5. He stepped on it. Squished it. Squashed it. Killed it. Cut it down in its prime. It kicked the bucket, turned up its toes, shuffled off this mortal coil. It was ... an ex-rabbit."
"He's a dangerous man, your father."
"The baby better learn to dodge. #Quote by Derek Landy
Prime quotes by John Key
#6. Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don't, how you'll handle a situation - whether you've got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions. #Quote by John Key
Prime quotes by Scottie Pippen
#7. It [would have] been very difficult. As I said, the rules ... but if the rules were put in place back when Michael Jordan was in his prime - no hand-checking, the game was more geared toward offense, wanting to promote scoring in the game - he could have probably got close. He did score 69. #Quote by Scottie Pippen
Prime quotes by Rutger Bregman
#8. Whether it's the growth of the economy, audience shares, publications – slowly but surely, quality is being replaced by quantity. ... And driving it all is a force sometimes called "liberalism," an ideology that has been all but hollowed out. ... Freedom may be our highest ideal, but ours has become an empty freedom. Our fear of moralizing in any form has made morality a taboo in the public debate. The public arena should be "neutral," after all – yet never before has it been so paternalistic. On every street corner we're baited to booze, binge, borrow, buy, toil, stress, and swindle. Whatever we may tell ourselves about freedom of speech, our values are suspiciously close to those touted by precisely the companies that can pay for prime-time advertising. #Quote by Rutger Bregman
Prime quotes by Arthur Miller
#9. By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Prime quotes by Chris Cleave
#10. Charlie put his head on one side to watch. The ears of his Batman hood flopped over. He said, "That is the Joker, isn't it?" "No Charlie. That is the prime minister." "Is he a goody or a baddy?" I thought to myself. "Half the people think he is a goody and the other half think he is a baddy." Charlie giggled. "That's silly," he said. "That is democracy," I said. "If you did not have it, you would want it. #Quote by Chris Cleave
Prime quotes by Michael Marmot
#11. A prime way of giving children a good start in life is to help their parents. There #Quote by Michael Marmot
Prime quotes by Edward S. Greenberg
#12. The "evils of faction" theme recurs throughout our history, from the writings of the "muckrakers" at the turn of the twentieth century to the Democratic presidential primary campaigns of 2008 with talk of Halliburton's contracts in Iraq and the shady practices of sub-prime mortgage lenders. #Quote by Edward S. Greenberg
Prime quotes by Dan Wakefield
#13. Religion is rarely mentioned in current prime-time dramas or sitcoms that supposedly reflect the way we live now. #Quote by Dan Wakefield
Prime quotes by Matt Haig
#14. To enjoy life, we might have to stop thinking about what we will never be able to read and watch and say and do, and start to think of how to enjoy the world within our boundaries. To live on a human scale. To focus on the few things we can do, rather than the millions of things we can't. To not crave parallel lives. To find a smaller mathematics. To be a proud and singular one. An indivisible prime. #Quote by Matt Haig
Prime quotes by Doris Lessing
#15. Arthur Deikman's prime and particular contribution, apart from drawing attention to the problem, was to point out how much cultish behaviour goes on unrecognised, in, for instance, business life or in apparently harmless organisations, religious or philanthropic. It is useful to ask oneself the question: do I feel superior because I belong to - whatever it is? Do I look down on people outside? Perhaps the most easily seen feature of a cult s that: WE are better than THEM. It is salutary to recognise how often in a day we feel disapproval or superiority, matching ourselves with 'outsiders' ... #Quote by Doris Lessing
Prime quotes by Harry Leslie Smith
#16. In November, when our nation remembers her fallen soldiers and honours the lost youth of my generation, the Prime Minister, government leaders and the hollow men of business affix paper poppies to their lapels and afford the dead of war two minutes' silence. Afterwards, they speak golden platitudes about the struggle and the heroism of that time. Yet the words they speak are meaningless because they have surrendered the values my generation built after the horrors of the Second World War. #Quote by Harry Leslie Smith
Prime quotes by Virginia Woolf
#17. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Prime quotes by Anne Serling
#18. On a deeper level, the film [Seven Days in May] displays several themes that are important to my father throughout his career. Prime among these is not succumbing to fear born of ignorance. In the nuclear age, he seems to be telling us, we can't throw up our hands in helplessness over the enormity of the problem. With the stakes as dire as they are, we must all work positively to change things for the better. I think that is why he believes so firmly in the idea of the United Nations. As in 'Twilight Zone's' "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", my dad is warning us that the greatest threat we face is if a potential enemy uses our fears to get us to start destroying ourselves. #Quote by Anne Serling
Prime quotes by Norman Longmate
#19. Later that afternoon with the Germans already in Trafalgar Square and advancing down Whitehall to take their position in the rear, the enemy unit advancing across St. James 'Park made their final charge. Several of those in the Downing Street position were already dead... and at last the Bren ceased its chatter, its last magazine emptied.

Churchill reluctantly abandoned the machine-gun, drew his pistol and with great satisfaction, for it was a notoriously inaccurate weapon, shot dead the first German to reach the foot of the steps. As two more rushed forward, covered by a third in the distance, Winston Churchill moved out of the shelter of the sandbags, as if personally to bar the way up Downing Street. A German NCO, running up to find the cause of the unexpected hold-up, recognised him and shouted to the soldiers not to shoot, but he was too late. A burst of bullets from a machine-carbine caught the Prime Minister in the chest. He died instantly, his back to Downing Street, his face toward the enemy, his pistol still in his hand. #Quote by Norman Longmate
Prime quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#20. To say that one goes on holiday is to speak the language of the working class, for whom the time off appears merry and playful; but to say one goes on vacation is to speak the language of the ruling class. Vacation comes from the same root as vacant and reflects what the owner sees when he looks around the floor - a vacancy where John 'should' 'be'. (I suspect that the owner probably thinks some negative thoughts about the Labor Unions and the 'damned Liberal' Government that force him to pay John even when John 'is vacant.')

I leave it as a puzzle for the reader: Do the Irish and English speak Working Class in this case because they have had several socialist governments, or have the had several socialist governments because they learned to speak the language of the Working Class? And: has the U.S., alone among industrial nations, never had a socialist government because it speaks the Ruling Class language, or does it speak the Ruling Class language because it has never had a socialist government? #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Prime quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#21. A Friend who attends to you only at his spare-time is not worth your prime-time. #Quote by Bernard Kelvin Clive
Prime quotes by Gavyn Davies
#22. There is an honourable tradition in British public life that those charged with authority at the top of an organisation should accept responsibility for what happens in that organisation. I am therefore writing to the prime minister today to tender my resignation as chairman of the BBC. #Quote by Gavyn Davies
Prime quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#23. So far are we generally from thinking what we often say of the shortness of life, that at the time when it is necessarily shortest we form projects which we delay to execute, indulge such expectations as nothing but along train of events can gratify, and suffer those passions to gain upon us which are only excusable in the prime of life. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Prime quotes by Noam Chomsky
#24. In September 1993, President Clinton presided over a handshake between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat on the White House lawn - the climax of a 'day of awe,' as the press described it. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Prime quotes by Michael Manley Former Prime Minister Of Jamaica
#25. Where are these fucking guns coming from? #Quote by Michael Manley Former Prime Minister Of Jamaica
Prime quotes by Pema Chodron
#26. Opting for coziness, having that as your prime reason for existing, becomes a continual obstacle to taking a leap and doing something new, doing something unusual, like going as a stranger into a strange land. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Prime quotes by Norman Mailer
#27. I usually need a can of beer to prime me. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Prime quotes by Paul Ham
#28. In America's 'nonlinear war', with no frontline or clear political or territorial goals, the number of enemy killed apparently revealed who was 'winning'. 'The military kill' became 'the prime target, simply because the essential political target is too elusive for us, or worse, because we do not understand its importance'. #Quote by Paul Ham
Prime quotes by Derek Wilson
#29. Lord Rothschild had access to all manner of leaders and experts. He was responsible only to the Prime Minister and answerable to neither the electorate nor the civil service chiefs. #Quote by Derek Wilson
Prime quotes by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
#30. Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. #Quote by Pedro Calderon De La Barca
Prime quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#31. I was young at Myna, that first time. When had the change come? He had retreated to here, to Collegium, to spin his awkward webs of intrigue and to lecture at the College. Then, years on, the call had come for action. He had gone to that chest in which he stored his youth and found that, like some armour long unworn, it had rusted away.
He tried to tell himself that this was not like the grumbling of any other man who finds the prime of his life behind him. I need my youth and strength now, as never before. A shame that one could no husband time until one needed it. All his thoughts rang hollow. He was past his best and that was the thorn that would not be plucked from his side. He was no different from any tradesman or scholar who, during a life of indolence, pauses partway up the stairs to think, This was not so hard, yesterday. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Prime quotes by Edward James Olmos
#32. Had I done the movies that were offered to me in my prime, at the height of my career, I would have been alongside the likes of Denzel Washington. But, I chose not to do those movies. #Quote by Edward James Olmos
Prime quotes by Jarod Kintz
#33. My penis is seven. Not years old or even inches. No, my genitalia is the prime number seven. Isn't that odd? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Prime quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#34. The effectiveness of an author turns chiefly upon his getting the reputation that he should be read. But by practicing various arts, by the operation of chance, and by certain natural affinities, this reputation is quickly won by a hundred worthless people: while a worthy writer may come by it very slowly and tardily. The former possess friends to help them; for the rabble is always a numerous body which holds well together. The latter has nothing but enemies; because intellectual superiority is everywhere and under all circumstances the most hateful thing in the world, and especially to bunglers in the same line of work, who want to pass for something themselves. This being so, it is a prime condition for doing any great work
any work which is to outlive its own age, that a man pay no heed to his contemporaries, their views and opinons, and the praise or blame which they bestow. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Prime quotes by Sharon Olds
#35. Seeing yourself as responsible for the quality of your relationship, as a prime mover in your life, I think is a bold, amazing step. #Quote by Sharon Olds
Prime quotes by Barack Obama
#36. I think the Prime Minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia's still got some work to do. Just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do on these issues. Human Rights Watch probably has a list of things they think we should be doing as a government. #Quote by Barack Obama
Prime quotes by David Blunkett
#37. It is now in Gordon Brown's - and the Labour party's - best interests for those seeking the prime minister's immediate departure to back off #Quote by David Blunkett
Prime quotes by Carol Shields
#38. This was during a period in my reading life when I was given to understand that "relating" to the fictional characters or situation was of prime importance, and so I read, I'm sorry to say, narrowly, frugally, unadventurously, as though I had no interest in the greater world and no desire to experience other cycles of thinking and being. This idea of "relating", or identifying, was encouraged by my teachers and even, I believe, by the critical theories of the day. Naive as it may sound, one read fiction in order to confirm the reality of one's experience. #Quote by Carol Shields
Prime quotes by Thaksin Shinawatra
#39. I never, never supporting any violence and everybody that know me, and all the countries here they know well that is no one, nowhere that the former prime minister will become terrorist to hurt their own country. No way. #Quote by Thaksin Shinawatra
Prime quotes by Alan Bennett
#40. Never be prime minister at the start of a war, Nessie [..] The man that lead you into it isn't the one to lead you out of it. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Prime quotes by Marlon James
#41. And that's all this Prime Minister needed, a nice multi-syllable word like destabilization to turn it into a fucking jingle. But he threw us on the defensive in a way that I'll make sure never happens again. Of course the only people listening was Penthouse magazine. Goddamn, what does it mean when the conscience of America airbrushes pussy for a living? #Quote by Marlon James
Prime quotes by Wassily Kandinsky
#42. Barriers are continually being made out of ... new values which have overturned the barriers of the past. Thus one sees that it is not basically the new value that is of prime importance, but rather the spirit that is revealed in this value, as well as the freedom necessary for this revelation ... #Quote by Wassily Kandinsky
Prime quotes by Mark Twain
#43. In America, we hurry-which is well; but when the day's work is done, we go on thinking of losses and gains, we plan for the morrow, we even carry our business cares to bed with us ... we burn up our energies with these excitements, and either die early or drop into a lean and mean old age at a time of life which they call a man's prime in Europe ... What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges! #Quote by Mark Twain
Prime quotes by Meister Eckhart
#44. St Augustine says: 'The true servant of God does not desire to be told or to be given what they would like to hear or see, for their prime and highest wish is to hear what is most pleasing to God.'3 #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Prime quotes by Gyorgy Lukacs
#45. This feeling that
contrary to the consciously philosophic and historical conception which proclaims unceasing and peaceful progress
one is experiencing a last brief, irretrievable intellectual prime of humanity manifests itself in the greatest representatives of this period in different ways, in keeping with the unconscious character of this feeling. #Quote by Gyorgy Lukacs
Prime quotes by Gordon Brown
#46. Other prime ministers leave office and stay in London. I have come back with my whole family to Fife. This is where they are being brought up. It is better for them and better for me. It's great to see more of the kids. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Prime quotes by Alexander Downer
#47. Yeah, well I'm not aspiring to be the Prime Minister. #Quote by Alexander Downer
Prime quotes by Charlton Heston
#48. The prime motivation in making almost any film is success, because film is the art form of the 20th century. #Quote by Charlton Heston
Prime quotes by Jonathan Frakes
#49. If the prime directives were followed a little more accurately here on earth, I mean it sounds somewhat Pollyanna, but I think people would certainly get along better. #Quote by Jonathan Frakes
Prime quotes by Bob Lilly
#50. We started playing the Baltimore Colts early, and I was still very impressed with Johnny Unitas, who just passed away recently. I thought he was one of the best quarterbacks at the time when I was very young, he was in his prime. #Quote by Bob Lilly
Prime quotes by Peter Van Der Veer
#51. What economists and political scientists today call the "rational choice of individuals," but what Smith called "the individual pursuit of happiness," leads according to this view in a mechanical way to general welfare. As Alexander Pope in his Essay on Man put it: "true Self Love and Social are the same." While this is the foundation of liberal capitalism, Marx's dialectical materialism is not different in its selection of the economy as the prime mover. In this way the economy becomes the most important purpose of society. Fortunately, the economy has laws of causation, or, at least, that is what economists would like us to believe. Statistics are gathered to provide an objectified view of reality that enables social engineering. The individual and the collective are simultaneously put in an economic framework that is secular not in the sense that it is nonreligious, since individuals can rationally pursue religious ends, but in the sense that a God-given order of society has been replaced by an order that is constantly produced by homo economicus" (p. 41). #Quote by Peter Van Der Veer

Prime quotes by Baba Kalyani
#53. Everywhere in the world, whether manufacturing, trade or whatever, it is controlled by one apparatus and one policy perspective. Here we have one prime minister with good intentions, and six ministries running their own empires. This creates problems including the import culture. #Quote by Baba Kalyani
Prime quotes by Xun Kuang
#54. Thus, the enlightened ruler is fond of what is essential, and the (565) benighted ruler is fond of the minor details. If the ruler is fond of what is essential, then the hundred affairs will be taken care of down to their minor details, but if the ruler is fond of the minor details, then the hundred affairs will be neglected. A true lord is one who judges the one right prime minister, sets out the one right model, and (570) makes clear the one right directive, so as to cover all, illuminate all, and then observes things flourish. A #Quote by Xun Kuang
Prime quotes by Kato
#55. It never happens that, when we go home and open the refrigerator, we see all infinitely many prime numbers there. #Quote by Kato
Prime quotes by Katie Hafner
#56. Suddenly life was good, even glamorous. We were poor but didn't know it, or maybe we did know, but we didn't care, because my mother had stopped disappearing into her bedroom. Our apartment building was surrounded by empty lots, which were all that separated us from the ocean. Within a couple of decades, those stretches of undeveloped land – prime coastline real estate –would be built upon, with upscale apartment complexes and million-dollar houses with ocean views. But in 1967, those barren lots were our magnificent private playground. I had a tomboy streak and recruited neighborhood boys onto an ad hoc softball team. Dieter and my mother installed a tetherball pole, which acted as a magnet for kids in the neighborhood. For the first time in years, we were enjoying what felt like a normal, quasi-suburban existence, with us at the center of everything–the popular kids with the endless playground. #Quote by Katie Hafner
Prime quotes by Jessica Lahey
#57. Middle school is prime time for failure, even among kids who have sailed through school up to that point. The combined stressors of puberty, heightened academic expectations, and increased workload are a setup for failure. How parents, teachers, and students work together to overcome those inevitable failures predicts so much about how children will fare in high school, college, and beyond. #Quote by Jessica Lahey
Prime quotes by Conan O'Brien
#58. George Clooney says he's had sex with too many women to ever run for office. He was immediately made Prime Minister of Italy. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Prime quotes by John Cheever
#59. At her dressing table putting on earrings. She is a pretty woman in the prime of life, and her ignorance of financial necessity is complete. Her neck is graceful, her breasts gleamed as they rose in the cloth of her dress, and, seeing the decent and healthy delight she took in her own image, I could not tell her that we were broke. She had sweetened much of my life, and to watch her seemed to freshen the wellsprings of some clear energy in me that made the room and the pictures on the wall and the moon that could see outside the window all vivid and cheerful. #Quote by John Cheever
Prime quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#60. Any time, every time, you can damn the Prime Minister and so long as it is not a lie and a criminal lie, nothing happens to you. You can say a lot of things. You can write books about him, damning him. So long as it is not a libel, go ahead. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Prime quotes by Clarence John Laughlin
#61. Dissatisfaction with one's self and dissatisfaction with the world - is necessary - it is one of the prime things that keeps the artist going on - that drives him - happiness, as such, must come in between times, as best it can. #Quote by Clarence John Laughlin
Prime quotes by Ronnie Barker
#62. But first, the news: The House of Commons was sealed off today after police chased an escaped lunatic through the front door during Prime Minister's question time. A spokesman at Scotland Yard said it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. #Quote by Ronnie Barker
Prime quotes by Hal Borland
#63. Weekend planning is a prime time to apply the Deathbed Priority Test: On your deathbed, will you wish you'd spent more prime weekend hours grocery shopping or walking in the woods with your kids? #Quote by Hal Borland
Prime quotes by David Petraeus
#64. The progress in Iraq is still fragile. And it could still be reversed. Iraq still faces innumerable challenges, and they will be evident during what will likely be a difficult process as the newly elected Council of Representatives selects the next prime minister, president, and speaker of the council. #Quote by David Petraeus
Prime quotes by Ally Carter
#65. No, you misunderstand, Madame Prime Minister. I'm not just good at staying alive. I'm also really, really good at drugging people. - Grace #Quote by Ally Carter
Prime quotes by Mark Haddon
#66. Prime numbers are useful for writing codes and in America they are classed as Military Material and if you find one over 100 digits you have to tell the CIA and they buy it off you for $10,000. But it would not be a very good way of making a living. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Prime quotes by Brian Mulroney
#67. If your only objective is to be popular, you're going to be popular but you will be known as the Prime Minister who achieved nothing. #Quote by Brian Mulroney
Prime quotes by Joseph Campbell
#68. There have been systems of religion where the mother is the prime parent, the source, and she's really a more immediate parent than the father, because one is born from the mother ... so that the image of the woman is the image of the world. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Prime quotes by Jon Stewart
#69. Spain's new Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero announced he will soon call back Spain's 1300 troops from Iraq - meaning the coalition of the willing is fast turning into a duet of the stubborn. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Prime quotes by Ray Bradbury
#70. Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Prime quotes by Andrea Leadsom
#71. For the second time in history the Conservatives will have a female prime minster, proving that we are not just the greatest but the most progressive party in Britain. #Quote by Andrea Leadsom
Prime quotes by Thomas Moore
#72. Every season hath its pleasure; Spring may boast her flowery prime, Yet the vineyard's ruby treasuries Brighten Autumn's sob'rer time. #Quote by Thomas Moore
Prime quotes by William C. Bryant
#73. The linden, in the fervors of July,
Hums with a louder concert. When the wind
Sweeps the broad forest in its summer prime,
As when some master-hand exulting sweeps
The keys of some great organ, ye give forth
The music of the woodland depths, a hymn
Of gladness and of thanks. #Quote by William C. Bryant
Prime quotes by Neville Chamberlain
#74. My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time ... Go home and get a nice quiet sleep. #Quote by Neville Chamberlain
Prime quotes by Paula Deen
#75. You know, not everybody can afford to pay $58 for prime rib or $650 for a bottle of wine. My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills. #Quote by Paula Deen
Prime quotes by Samuel I. Prime
#76. If you feel sincerely sorry on account of your sins, and believe that Christ is able and willing to forgive you, the work is done. You may trust with all the confidence of a child who confesses his fault, and casts himself into his father's arms. This is faith; a simple trust in the power and willingness of the Father to forgive, for the sake of what Christ the Son has done. #Quote by Samuel I. Prime
Prime quotes by Sam Manekshaw
#77. Don't you think I would be a worthy replacement for you, Madam Prime Minister? You have a long nose. So have I. But I don't poke my nose into other people's affairs. #Quote by Sam Manekshaw
Prime quotes by Ben Ehrenreich
#78. [T]he prime purpose of the occupation was not to take land or push people from their homes. It did that too of course, and effectively, but overall, with its checkpointed and its walls and its prisons and its permits, it functioned as a giant humiliation machine, a complex and sophisticated mechanism for the production of human despair. #Quote by Ben Ehrenreich
Prime quotes by Monica Esposito
#79. Only here [in the Center] a new union can occur, as the Mysterious Pass is the ideal space and time to experience the interpenetrating fluctuations of Yin and Yang. The Mysterious Pass is therefore the primordial Chaos (hundun) containing the germ of life-the pre-cosmic sparkle of Original Yang and Original Yin-which is the prime mover and the materia prima of the alchemical work. #Quote by Monica Esposito
Prime quotes by Vivian Balakrishnan
#80. I was recruited by the former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. And I never forgot his key message to me when he was encouraging me to come in. He said: "You must hold fast to your values. If you have to compromise your values in order to join us, you lose your value to us." #Quote by Vivian Balakrishnan
Prime quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#81. While she watched them, she reviewed their conversation. "When he said 'Kyr,' did he mean Kyr Zemen, the prime commander of the League?" Maris drained his glass in a way that was more akin to his military training than to the fastidious man she knew him to be. "One and the same. Unfortunately. Bloody damn wanker bastard." The venom behind those words had to spring from a personal grudge between them. She'd never seen so much hatred from Maris before toward anyone. Not even her. "How do you know him?" she asked. "He's my oldest brother." That #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Prime quotes by Oche Otorkpa
#82. In their quest to hit cloud Nine, our young men and women in
their prime are gradually finding themselves on ground Zero,
emotionally battered, academically bankrupt and medically
paralyzed. #Quote by Oche Otorkpa
Prime quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#83. America is replicated at every level of British life, from the taxi driver to the prime minister. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
Prime quotes by James Dean
#84. Trust and belief are two prime considerations. You must not allow yourself to be opinionated. #Quote by James Dean
Prime quotes by Max Irons
#85. They're a nasty bunch of people. The Riot Club's sole purpose is to celebrate wealth, elitism, hedonism, and excess - just random acts of destruction and chauvinism, which is interesting because our Prime Minister, our Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Mayor of London were are a part of this club. #Quote by Max Irons
Prime quotes by James Franco
#86. The general view is that actors start on soaps and then maybe graduate to prime-time television or film; normally you don't see a film actor going to do a soap. #Quote by James Franco
Prime quotes by Osho
#87. The whole of history is the history of murderers. If you become a murderer, fame will be very easy. You can become a prime minister, you can become a president - but these are all masks. Behind them you will find very violent people, terribly violent people hiding, smiling. Those smiles are political, diplomatic. If the mask slips, you will always see Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Nadir Shah, Napoleon, Alexander, Hitler, hiding behind. #Quote by Osho
Prime quotes by Michael Shermer
#88. The first-cause and prime-mover argument, brilliantly proffered by St. Thomas Aquinas in the fourteenth century (and brilliantly refuted by David Hume in the eighteenth century), is easily turned aside with just one more question: Who or what caused and moved God? #Quote by Michael Shermer
Prime quotes by Samar Sudha
The most important thing that requires to stand on the path of this Life's journey,
to face and get rid of all the hurdles and keep walking towards the Goal.
We started our life from our home,
where The God gave us himself but as a Mom.
But she has to push us out by squeezing her heart,
Because to live in the world, there is an Art.
To live in this cruel world, by knowledge you have to be a richer,
And for that everyone requires a Teachers.
They start their teaching from writing to Speak,
Thus how we become stronger where we been so weak.
In this been they become harsh for sometime,
Its even for us because to educate us for them actually prime.
They are instructor that show us right path & right ways,
Teachers are actually the God's grace and Divines rays

Prime quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#90. The primary imagination I hold to be the living power and prime agent of all human perception, and as a repetition in the finite mind of the eternal act of creation in the infinite I Am. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Prime quotes by Yitzhak Rabin
#91. It is my hope that I could be not just a Prime Minister, but a Prime Minister for Aboriginal affairs, the first I imagine that we've ever had. #Quote by Yitzhak Rabin
Prime quotes by Osho
#92. In the old days prime ministers were not chosen by the vote of the people, because how can you choose by the vote of the people? How can people choose their leaders? They would like to, but they are not capable. Democracy is just a dream, it has not happened anywhere – it cannot happen. And wherever it happens it creates trouble; the medicine proves more dangerous than the disease itself. #Quote by Osho
Prime quotes by Stephen King
#93. At bottom, you see, we are not Homo sapiens as all. Our core is madness. The prime directive is murder. What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle. And that is what the Pulse exposed five days ago. #Quote by Stephen King
Prime quotes by William Pryor
#94. The historical truth is a fiction. OK, I did whatever I could to find out what happened from
surviving friends, family and media, but that is simply a skeleton upon which the story is draped.
This is the unmasking of the myth, and, as Jean Cocteau put it: "Man seeks to escape himself
in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw
into himself, he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort."
I wanted to go beyond a recreation of the past to discover meaning in the degradation of my
addiction experience. The past is another country and not my prime interest. It's more what
the past can tell us about how we deal with the present moment.
- William Pryor #Quote by William Pryor
Prime quotes by Ray Bradbury
#95. Somehow, irresistibly, the prime thing was: nothing mattered. Life in the end seemed a prank of such size you could only stand off at this end of the corridor to note its meaningless length and it's quite unnecessary height, a mountain built to such ridiculous immensities you were dwarfed in its shadow and mocking of its pomp. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Prime quotes by Mark Haddon
#96. Prime numbers is what is left when you have taken all the patterns away. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Prime quotes by John Major
#97. I thought I could do something different from any Conservative prime minister before me. But I couldn't. #Quote by John Major
Prime quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#98. Will not perhaps the temporal power of Islam return and with it the menace of an armed Mohammedan world, which will shake off the domination of Europeans - still nominally Christian - and reappear as the prime enemy of our civilization? The future always comes as a surprise, but political wisdom consists in attempting at least some partial judgment of what that surprise may be. And for my part I cannot but believe that a main unexpected thing of the future is the return of Islam. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Prime quotes by Stockwell Day
#99. Individuals have little opportunity to get elected to Parliament under the label of the government party ... unless they are in good standing with the Prime Minister and pledged to be cooperative. #Quote by Stockwell Day
Prime quotes by Suzy Kassem

The modern day idols and animal gods
Embrace higher platforms in the sky
Than the statues of the gods of the ancients.
They beam through our screens
And we scream for them to be seen
And we cry if they aren't covering the pages.
We care more about a celebrity
Than the man who saved
An island of a million drowning men!
Eliminate these plastic idols and bloated gods
That represent nothing but shame.
And shame on us for allowing them to be seen
In a divine manner.
No man is to ever be put on a pedestal,
If he/she is not a prime example of the right way,
Has nothing to say,
Or simply has the money to buy
A rotating banner. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Prime quotes by Martin Bunton
#101. In a speech at Bar Ilan university, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the first time endorses the establishment of a Palestinian state. #Quote by Martin Bunton
Prime quotes by John Carey
#102. Dickens' hypocrites are the prime beneficiaries of his inventive genius. The heroes and heroines have no imagination. We could scrap all the solemn parts of his novels without impairing his status as a writer. But we could not remove Mrs. Gamp or Pecksniff or Bounderby without maiming him irreparably. #Quote by John Carey
Prime quotes by Susan C. Young
#103. Prime yourself for success and demonstrate to others that you are diligent, reliable, and trustworthy. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Prime quotes by Hans Haacke
#104. I have a particular interest in corporations that give themselves a cultural aura and are in other areas suspect. Philip Morris presents itself in New York as the lover of culture while it turns out that if you look behind the scenes, it is also a prime funder of Jesse Helms, someone who is very hostile to the arts. #Quote by Hans Haacke
Prime quotes by John Lanchester
#105. The credit crunch was based on a climate (the post-Cold War victory party of free-market capitalism), a problem (the sub-prime mortgages), a mistake (the mathematical models of risk) and a failure, that of the regulators. #Quote by John Lanchester
Prime quotes by Phillip C. McGraw

Here they are: Power Proteins Super Starches Chicken breast Oats Tuna (chunk light, canned in water) Brown rice Black beans Corn Prime Produce - Veggies Fit Fats Carrots Avocado Tomatoes Sunflower seeds Mushrooms Cashews Prime Produce-Fruits Blueberries Oranges Grapes #Quote by Phillip C.

Prime quotes by Marta Acosta
#107. Slim and neatly groomed, he looked like a really sexy mathematician unaware that he was a prime number. I wanted to unbutton his shirt, muss his hair, and exclaim, Good heavens, Professor Dracula, you're stunning! #Quote by Marta Acosta
Prime quotes by William J. Clinton
#108. You know, by the time you become the leader of a country, someone else makes all the decisions ... You may find you can get away with virtual presidents, virtual prime ministers, virtual everything. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Prime quotes by Adhish Mazumder
#109. A man in his early prime contemplates on life, shattered by the distortions of society he gazes ahead in time. There were vows of happiness and fairy tale beginnings. Now there is nothing of that sort; now there is nothing that started the tales so bright. It's after all this while that he understands why fairy tales begin with 'once upon a time'... #Quote by Adhish Mazumder
Prime quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#110. Uselessness
Let mine not be the saddest fate of all,
To live beyond my greater self; to see
My faculties decaying, as the tree
Stands stark and helpless while its green leaves fall
Let me hear rather the imperious call,
Which all men dread, in my glad morning time,
And follow death ere I have reached my prime,
Or drunk the strengthening cordial of life's gall.
The lightning's stroke or the fierce tempest blast
Which fells the green tree to the earth to-day
Is kinder than the calm that lets it last,
Unhappy witness of its own decay.
May no man ever look on me and say,
'She lives, but all her usefulness is past. #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Prime quotes by Edward Heath
#111. This was a secret meeting on a secret tour which nobody is supposed to know about. It means that there are men, and perhaps women, in this country walking around with eggs in their pockets, just on the off-chance of seeing the Prime Minister. #Quote by Edward Heath
Prime quotes by Jack Williamson
#112. [Science fiction is] a specialized type of fantasy, in which the prime assumption usually is a new scientific discovery or invention. #Quote by Jack Williamson
Prime quotes by Michel Faber
#113. Could indicate the cocky self-awareness of a male in prime condition. #Quote by Michel Faber
Prime quotes by Gordon Brown
#114. A woman said to me, 'You're better than your successor.' She then said she's lived under 10 prime ministers, and each was worse than the last. That put me in my place. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Prime quotes by Brian Tracy
#115. Practice "zero-based thinking" in every part of your life. Ask yourself continually, "If I were not doing this already, knowing what I now know, would I start doing it again today?" If it is something you would not start again today, knowing what you now know, it is a prime candidate for abandonment or creative procrastination. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Prime quotes by Greg Egan
#116. The campaign was also among the most heated in recent memory, or short -term anticipation. The soon-to-be Opposition Leader never tired of listing the promises the new Prime Minister would break; she in turn countered with statistics of the mess he'd create as Treasurer, in the mid-eighties. (The causes of that impending recession were still being debated by economists; most claimed it was an "essential precursor" of the prosperity of the nineties , and that The Market, in its infinite, time -spanning wisdom, would choose / had chosen the best of all possible futures. Personally, I suspect it simply proved that even foresight was no cure for incompetence. #Quote by Greg Egan
Prime quotes by Winston Churchill
#117. Solitary Trees if they grow at all, grow strong. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Prime quotes by Karl Marx
#118. In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life's prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly - only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs! #Quote by Karl Marx
Prime quotes by Benjamin Netanyahu
#119. This is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing. Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel. #Quote by Benjamin Netanyahu
Prime quotes by Suman Pokhrel
#120. Through years of my prime
I walked with a heart
crazy about love. #Quote by Suman Pokhrel
Prime quotes by Enrico Letta
#121. The first law I passed in my cabinet was a law eliminating the double salary for the prime minister and the ministers. I have a salary as member of parliament. I don't want a double salary. So it was a very important decision. #Quote by Enrico Letta
Prime quotes by Winston Churchill
#122. When I warned them [the French] that Britain would fight on alone whatever they did, their generals told their Prime Minister and his divided Cabinet, In three weeks England will have her neck wrung like a chicken. Some chicken! Some neck! #Quote by Winston Churchill
Prime quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#123. I am not in the market to create jobs, build an

Prime quotes by Rajneesh
#126. All of our miseries are nothing but attachment. Our whole ignorance and darkness is a strange combination of a thousand and one attachments. And we are attached to things which will be taken away by the time of death, or even perhaps before. You may be very much attached to money but you can go bankrupt tomorrow. You may be very much attached to your power and position, your presidency, your prime ministership, but they are like soap bubbles. Today they are here, tomorrow not even a trace will be left. #Quote by Rajneesh
Prime quotes by Kim Campbell
#127. I'd be prouder still to say I was Canada's 10th woman prime minister. #Quote by Kim Campbell
Prime quotes by Michael Gove
#128. I don't want to have anyone else as Prime Minister other than David Cameron, and if people spend their time thinking about some of this stuff, then they are getting in the way of two things: one, a fair, open, fact-based referendum debate; and two, the Conservative government continuing afterwards in a stable and secure fashion. #Quote by Michael Gove
Prime quotes by David Foster Wallace
#129. Fackelmann claimed to have started a Log just to keep track of Kite's attempted pickup lines
surefire lines like e.g. 'You're the second most beautiful woman I've ever seen, the first most beautiful woman I've ever seem being former Bristish Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher,' and 'If you came home with me I'm unusually confident that I could achieve an erection,' and said that if Kite wasn't still cherry at twenty-three and a half it was proof of some kind of divine-type grace. #Quote by David Foster Wallace

Prime quotes by Muriel Spark

Prime quotes by Michael Todd

Prime quotes by Margaret Thatcher

Prime quotes by Ellen Swallow Richards
#134. I often think that all the difficulties we encounter only give us the more strength if we keep hold of our work, and we must not now give up while in the prime of life. It is best to keep trying, and by and by the opportunity will come. If we have given up, then we shall not be ready for it when it does come. #Quote by Ellen Swallow Richards
Prime quotes by Mircea Eliade
#135. Man makes himself, and he only makes himself completely in proportion as he desacrilizes himself and the world. The sacred is the prime obstacle to his freedom. He will become himself only when he is totally demysticized. He will not be truly free until he has killed the last god. #Quote by Mircea Eliade
Prime quotes by John Polson
#136. I do prime time network shows like 'Blue Bloods.' I've done 'Fringe,' I've done 'The Good Wife,' done a lot of 'The Mentalist.' #Quote by John Polson
Prime quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#137. Many bright people are really in the dark about vegetable life. Biology teachers face kids in classrooms who may not even believe in the metamorphosis of bud to flower to fruit and seed, but rather, some continuum of pansies becoming petunias becoming chrysanthemums; that's the only reality they witness as landscapers come to campuses and city parks and surreptitiously yank out one flower before it fades from its prime, replacing it with another. The same disconnection from natural processes may be at the heart of our country's shift away from believing in evolution. In the past, principles of natural selection and change over time made sense to kids who'd watched it all unfold. Whether or not they knew the terms, farm families understood the processes well enough to imitate them: culling, selecting, and improving their herds and crops. For modern kids who intuitively believe in the spontaneous generation of fruits and vegetables in the produce section, trying to get their minds around the slow speciation of the plant kingdom may be a stretch. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Prime quotes by Jack LaLanne
#138. I tell people that the scales lie. You may have played basketball and weighed 175 pounds, with a 30-inch waist, back when you were in college. And you may still weigh 175 at 55. But you probably have a 35-inch waist and you've probably lost 30 or 40 pounds of muscle
and gained 30 or 40 pounds of fat. The tape measure doesn't lie. Get that tape measure out and put it on your hips and your waist. Keep checking it. And keep exercising and cutting those calories down until that tape measure gets close to where you were in your prime. #Quote by Jack LaLanne
Prime quotes by Tucker Elliot
#139. It's widely noted that among players currently eligible for the Hall of Fame, Maris and Murphy are the only two-time MVP recipients not enshrined at Cooperstown. In a previous book I argued Maris should be in the Hall of Fame - here I'd simply point out that during his prime, Murphy was the best player in the game. You can argue that his prime didn't last long enough or that his career numbers aren't strong enough, but then he didn't cheat either. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Prime quotes by Rene Descartes
#140. [ ... ] the diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise from some being endowed with a larger share of reason than others, but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different ways, and do not fix our attention on the same objects. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it. The greatest minds, as they are capable of the highest excellences, are open likewise to the greatest aberrations; and those who travel very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the straight road, than those who, while they run, forsake it. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Prime quotes by Drexel Deal
#141. One of the things we haven't taught our people as a nation, that this is their country. We haven't told them that this Bahamas belongs to them. Whether it succeeds or fails it is entirely up to them. WE haven't told our people that they are valuable. I sometimes pass little boys playing in the road and I would stop my car and say to them: 'Excuse me baby, do you realize how valuable you are? Do not play in the road, if anything happen to you that is going to hurt us. Because you might be our Prime Minister one day. Iris Adderley, consultant in the Disability Affairs Devision of The Department of Social Services. #Quote by Drexel Deal
Prime quotes by Virginia Woolf
#142. For though I have no wish to be Queen of England - or only for a moment - I would willingly sit beside her; I would hear the Prime Minister's gossips; the countess whisper, and share her memories of halls and gardens; the massive fronts of the respectable conceal after all their secret code; or why so impermeable? And then, doffing one's own headpiece, how strange to assume for a moment someone's - anyone's - to be a man of valour who has ruled the Empire; to refer while Brangaena sings to the fragments of Sophocles, or see in a flash, as the shepherd pipes his tune, bridges and aqueducts. But no - we must choose. Never was there a harsher necessity! or one which entails greater pain; more certain disaster; for wherever I seat myself, I die in exile: Whittaker in his lodging-house; Lady Charles at the manor #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Prime quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#143. Kaffman (2009) described childhood victimization as a "silent epidemic", and Finkelhor, Turner, Ormrod, and Hamby (2010) reported that children are the most traumatized class of humans around the globe. The findings of these researchers are at odds with the view that children have protected status in most families, societies, and cultures. Instead, Finkelhor reports that children are prime targets and highly vulnerable, due principally to their small size, their physical and emotional immaturity with its associated lack of control, power and resources; and their related dependency on caregivers. They are subjected to many forms of exploitation on an ongoing basis, imposed on them by individuals with greater power, strength, knowledge, and resources, many of whom are, paradoxically and tragically, responsible for their care and welfare. These traumas are interpersonal in nature and involve personal transgression, violation and exploitation of the child by those who rely on the child's lesser physical abilities, innocence, and immaturity to intimidate, bully, confuse, blackmail, exploit, or otherwise coerce.

In the worst-case scenario, a parent or other significant caregiver directly and repeatedly abuses a child or does not respond to or protect a child or other vulnerable individual who is being abused and mistreated and isolates the child from others through threats or with direct violence. Consequently, such an abusive, nonprotective, or malevolently exploitative #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Prime quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#144. A former boxer, he sat on one end of a small couch; I sat on the other. . . . By the end of our meeting, I was wedged tightly into the corner of the couch, appalled at his bullying attitude and barely controlled rage. (it refers to Vladimír Mečiar, the former prime minister of Slovak republik) #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Prime quotes by Stephen King
#145. The ass of a man is the piston that drives the world, and you have a good one. In my prime, I would have corked it with my thumb and then eaten you alive. Preferably by the pool of Le Meridien in Monte Carlo, with an admiring audience to applaud my frontside and backside efforts. #Quote by Stephen King
Prime quotes by Alan Dean Foster
#146. Remember that the prime consideration of science is the protection and betterment of human life. I would never contravene that. #Quote by Alan Dean Foster
Prime quotes by Matt Groening
#147. When The Simpsons came around, there really was nothing else like it on TV. It's hard to imagine, but when Fox first took the plunge with it, it was considered controversial to put animation on prime time. #Quote by Matt Groening
Prime quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#148. I think it might be better to have the President sort of like the King of England - or the Queen - and have the real business of the presidency conducted by ... a city manager-type, a Prime Minister, somebody who's directly answerable to Congress, rather than a person who moves all his friends into the White House and does whatever he wants for four years. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Prime quotes by Terri Irwin
#149. Bindi the Jungle Girl aired on July 18, 2007, on ABC (Channel 2) in Australia, and we were so proud. Bindi's determination to carry on her father's legacy was a testament to everything Steve believed in. He had perfectly combined his love for his family with his love for conservation and leaving the world a better place. Now this love was perfectly passed down to his kids.
The official beginning of Bindi's career was a fantastic day. All the time and effort, and joy and sorrow of the past year culminated in this wonderful series. Now everyone was invited to see Bindi's journey, first filming with her dad, and then stepping up and filming with Robert and me. It was also a chance to experience one more time why Steve was so special and unique, to embrace him, to appreciate him, and to celebrate his life.
Bindi, Robert, and I would do our best to make sure that Steve's light wasn't hidden under a bushel. It would continue to sine as we worked together to protect all wildlife and all wild places.
After Bindi's show launched, it seemed so appropriate that another project we had been working on for many months came to fruition. We found an area of 320,000 acres in Cape York Peninsula, bordered on one side by the Dulcie River and on the other side by the Wenlock River--some of the best crocodile country in the world. It was one of the top spots in Australia, and the most critically important habitat in the state of Queensland. Prime Minister John Howard, along with th #Quote by Terri Irwin

Prime quotes by Toni Cade Bambara
#153. I am one beautiful and powerful son of a bitch,' he told himself. 'Smart as a whip, respected, prosperous, beloved and valuable. I have the right to be healthy, happy and rich, for I am the baddest player in this arena or any other. I love myself more than I love money and pretty women and fine clothes. I love myself more than I love neat gardens and healthy babies and a good gospel choir. I love myself as I love The Law. I love myself in error and in correctness, waking or sleeping, sneezing, tipsy, or fabulously brilliant I love myself doing the books or sitting down to a good game of poker. I love myself making love expertly, or tenderly and shyly, or clumsily and inept. I love myself as I love The Master's Mind,' he continued his litany, having long ago stumbled upon the prime principle as a player--that self-love produces the gods and the gods are genius. It took genius to run the Southwest Community Infirmary. So he made the rounds of his hospital the way he used to make the rounds of his houses to keep the tops spinning, reciting declarations of self-love. #Quote by Toni Cade Bambara
Prime quotes by William Blake
#154. Re-engrav'd time after time
Ever in their youthful prime

In my Golden House on high
There they shine eternally #Quote by William Blake
Prime quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#155. Trying to get to the answer before one has understood all the right questions is a prime source of error in human affairs. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
Prime quotes by Robert Downey, Jr.
#156. I grew up with a lot of people whose whole prime mover was dad rage. I never really had it - it always seemed so empty. It always seemed to be masking something else, which was really their own lack of initiative. #Quote by Robert Downey, Jr.
Prime quotes by Donna Andrews
#157. But what about your own?" he asked. "Assuming, of course, you're interested in having one?"
"I'm not. If I ever get married, I shall elope. That has now become my prime requirement in a husband. Willingness to elope. #Quote by Donna Andrews
Prime quotes by Jim Harrison
#158. Cliff, a cell phone isn't a toy. It's a very lucky technical miracle for all of us. It's a prime weapon against our essential loneliness.
I can't say I've ever felt that lonely. #Quote by Jim Harrison
Prime quotes by Victoria Vane
#159. She let her gaze travel over him in a slow appreciation of his tall, lean, muscular frame. She guessed he stood at least six-three in his boots. "I suppose not," she said. "It would be only prime grass-fed beef and Idaho potatoes for you."
He crossed his arms over his broad chest and leaned on the door frame studying her. "Miz Powell, if I didn't know better, I'd think you were undressing me with those pretty blue-green eyes of yours."
A guilty flush infused her face but she refused to give him the advantage. She opted for a strong offense instead. "So what if I was? Weren't you quite fixated on my ass at Denver airport?"
He raised a sandy eyebrow. "You noticed that, eh?" His confession came with a shameless grin attached.
She jutted her chin. "Quid pro quo, Counselor. What do you say to that?"
He approached her slowly, the smile in his eyes transforming in a blink to a wicked gleam. A gleam that promised very bad things. His reply sent a warning signal to every nerve in her body. "I'd say, why just use your eyes? #Quote by Victoria Vane
Prime quotes by Bryan Greenberg
#160. If a fan comes up and it is a middle-aged lady, it is probably from 'Prime'; if it is a younger girl, it is probably from when I guest-starred on 'One Tree Hill.' And if it is, like, a skateboard kid or a hipster kid, I can tell they are 'How to Make It' fans. #Quote by Bryan Greenberg
Prime quotes by Wafa Sultan
#161. Why does a young Muslim, in the prime of life, with a full life ahead, go and blow himself up in a bus full of innocent passengers? In our countries, religion is the sole source of education, and this is the only spring from which that terrorist drank until his thirst was quenched. He was not born a terrorist, and did not become a terrorist overnight. Islamic teachings played a role in weaving his ideological fabric, thread by thread, and did not allow other sources - I am referring to scientific sources - to play a role. It was these teachings that distorted this terrorist, and killed his humanity; it was not [the terrorist] who distorted the religious teachings, and misunderstood them, as some ignorant people claim. When you recite to a child still in his early years the verse 'They will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternative sides cut off,' regardless of this verse's interpretation, and regardless of the reasons it was conveyed, or its time, you have made the first step towards creating a great terrorist. #Quote by Wafa Sultan
Prime quotes by Billie Jean King

Prime quotes by Meg Howrey
#164. Before Luke had come to Prime he had considered the question of why so much money should be spent on space exploration when the problems of Earth were so desperate. Now he sees that it is the wrong question. Humans were going to go on savaging Earth and savaging each other i no one ever spent another penny on space exploration.

Going to Mars could make us better humans. And we had to be better. "When we eventually colonize Mars," Boon Cross has said, "then we need to do so as an enlightened species moving forward, not as panicked refugees clinging to survival by our fingernails. #Quote by Meg Howrey

Prime quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#166. The richest person in the world - in fact, all the riches in the world - couldn't provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available in your local library. You can measure the awareness, the breadth and the wisdom of a civilization, a nation, a people by the priority given to preserving these repositories of all that we are, all that we were, or will be. Our libraries are being eroded alarmingly by inflation. It behooves us - all of us - to stop the rot by the application of that prime preserver - money. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Prime quotes by Frigyes Karinthy
#167. You cannot imagine, to give you another example, that you may have, one day, a prime minister (it would go against my modesty to breathe his name) who, one day, after announcing in Parliament, in a cool, impassive voice, that, as the result of a number of carefully thought out diplomatic manoeuvres he has refrained from discussing before (for he is not a man of many words), he has succeeded in annexing Britain as an ordinary colony of Hungary, and that he is taking this opportunity to apprise the House of the fact; - Well, as I say, after explaining this in a cool and impassive tone, ignoring the shouting, jubilant Members who want to carry him round on their shoulders, suddenly he takes up a fencing posture and, right there, on the premier's rostrum, employing a formidable, hitherto unknown jujitsu hold, floors the Australian world wrestling champion whom the British opposition treacherously hid under the rostrum in order to assassinate the greatest European. #Quote by Frigyes Karinthy
Prime quotes by Imran Khan
#168. People still laugh at me in politics, they think I won't make it; but I think I will, after Harold Wilson, I will be your next Chancellor to become Prime Minister. #Quote by Imran Khan
Prime quotes by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
#169. Today is indeed an historic occasion when as a first chair-in-office woman I hand over to another woman chair in office, your Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, in the presence of a woman head of the Commonwealth, Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty the Queen of England. #Quote by Kamla Persad-Bissessar
Prime quotes by Tivadar Kosztka Csontvary
#170. I, Tivadar Kosztka, who gave up his prime of youth for the rebirth of the world, accepting the call of the invisible Spirit, had a regular civil job, comfort, wealth then ... Going to Paris in 1907 I oppositely standed alone in front of millions with only the result of the divine providence, and I beat the vanity of the world hollow, but I haven't killed 10 million people, only sobered them. I haven't made commercials from things, because I didn't care for the pedlar's press; I retired from the world instead, going to the top of the Lebanons, and I painted cedars. #Quote by Tivadar Kosztka Csontvary
Prime quotes by Gail Sheehy
#171. It is a paradox that as we reach out prime, we also see there is a place where it finishes. #Quote by Gail Sheehy
Prime quotes by Matt Haig
#172. Because prime numbers are fucking serious, man. Some serious shit. They can make you lose it. They're like sirens. They call you in with their isolated beauty and before you know it you are in some major mind-shit. #Quote by Matt Haig
Prime quotes by Courtney Cole
#173. After a few minutes of running aimlessly through empty halls, I find myself outdoors by the pool. It's still and quiet and the water is sparkling under the moon. There is no one here so I collapse into a heap on a lounge.
And I cry.
I cry in heaves and sobs and wrack my ribs and finally my freaking head hurts again from all the sobbing. And I don't even feel pathetic for crying so much because anyone in their right mind would cry in my situation.
I'm in a foreign country, all alone, in love with the Prime Minister's son and he's too afraid to break out of his cage and love me back. Oh, and I practically got stomped to death by a gigantic horse yesterday. I deserve some slack.
Finally, I'm all cried out. #Quote by Courtney Cole
Prime quotes by Lionel Jospin
#174. I am not the Prime Minister of French capitalism. I am the Prime Minister of France. #Quote by Lionel Jospin
Prime quotes by George MacDonald Fraser
#175. Tony Blair is not just the worst prime minister we've ever had, but by far the worst prime minister we've ever had. It makes my blood boil to think of the British soldiers who've died for that little liar. #Quote by George MacDonald Fraser
Prime quotes by Anne Tyler
#176. She had tried her best to be a good mother---which to her meant a predictable mother. She had promised herself that her children would never have to worry what sort of mood she was in; they would never peek into her bedroom in the morning to see how their day was going to go. She was the only woman she knew whose prime objective was to be taken for granted. #Quote by Anne Tyler
Prime quotes by John Key
#177. I think what happens when you are prime minister is no day is the same and every day you are under pressure. And there is always so much happening that the days just flash by and flash into weeks. #Quote by John Key
Prime quotes by Jim Shaw
#178. Warhol was a prime example of a schizoid person. Maybe he had Asperger's, or maybe he was just an amorous human being on earth. #Quote by Jim Shaw
Prime quotes by Aleister Crowley
#179. If one had to worry about one's actions in respect of other people's ideas, one might as well be buried alive in an antheap or married to an ambitious violinist. Whether that man is the prime minister, modifying his opinions to catch votes, or a bourgeois in terror lest some harmless act should be misunderstood and outrage some petty convention, that man is an inferior man and I do not want to have anything to do with him any more than I want to eat canned salmon. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Prime quotes by Angela Merkel
#180. I've spoken several times with Prime Minister Erdogan about relations between Turkey and Israel. I'm pleased that, following President Obama's visit to Israel, talks between Israel and Turkey are again taking place and hope that relations between them will further improve in the interest of both countries. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Prime quotes by Julia Gillard
#181. The Prime Minister seems now to be basing his re-election campaign on this plot line. He is saying to the Australian people, look out, the baddies behind you - hiss, boo and whatever you do, don't vote Labor. This political parody of pantomime is looking and sounding desperate. #Quote by Julia Gillard
Prime quotes by Andrew Morton
#182. The Prime Minister, who was in close contact with the Queen and Prince Charles, captured the feelings of loss and despair when he spoke to the nation earlier in the day from his Sedgefield constituency. Speaking without notes, his voice breaking with emotion, he described Diana as a 'wonderful and warm human being.'
'She touched the lives of so many others in Britain and throughout the world with joy and with comfort. How difficult things were for her from time to time, I'm sure we can only guess at. But people everywhere, not just here in Britain, kept faith with Princess Diana. They liked her, they loved her, they regarded her as one of the people. She was the People's Princess and that is how she will stay, how she will remain in all our hearts and memories for ever.'
While his was the first of many tributes which poured in from world figures, it perfectly captured the mood of the nation in a historic week which saw the British people, with sober intensity and angry dignity, place on trial the ancient regime, notably an elitist, exploitative and male-dominated mass media and an unresponsive monarchy. For a week Britain succumbed to flower power, the scent and sight of millions of bouquets a mute and telling testimony to the love people felt towards a woman who was scorned by the Establishment during her lifetime.
So it was entirely appropriate when Buckingham Palace announced that her funeral would be 'a unique service for a unique person'. The posies, the p #Quote by Andrew Morton

#183. I believe in Wendel Clark. We want Wendel to be a prime-time player. #Quote by Pat Burns
Prime quotes by Charles Stross
#184. The final vanity. This whole episode has never been about us. Can't you see? If this is happening now, it must have happened over and over. Who knows how many other planets we lost in the past, consumed as weapons of forgotten wars? Maybe all we see, the planets and stars and galaxies, is just the debris of huge wars - on and on, up to scales we can barely imagine. And we're just weeds growing in the rubble. Tell that to the Prime Minister. And I thought we might ask them about their gods! What a fool I've been - the questions on which I've wasted my life, and here are my answers - what a fool." She was growing agitated. "Take it easy, Edith - #Quote by Charles Stross
Prime quotes by P.D. Bekendam
#185. It's kind of sad how cynical I've become, but the more I think about it, I wonder how anybody makes it through life without becoming this way. The way I see it, after you make it past the innocence of youth you have one of two choices: you can either become cynical or delusional. I tried delusional for a while. It was sort of nice while it lasted-mainly because I didn't realize I was delusional. But then I woke up. So now I'm cynical. And the universe is once again having its way with me. #Quote by P.D. Bekendam
Prime quotes by Ferdinand De Saussure
#186. Of all social institutions language is least amenable to initiative. It blends with the life of society, and the latter, inert by nature, is a prime conservative force. #Quote by Ferdinand De Saussure
Prime quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#187. Prime area for something nasty to wait for prey. Bring it. I've got time to wash blood off my boots.' - Evalle #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Prime quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#188. I would say that if you're going to slander a lady's reputation," Simon said in a dangerously pleasant tone, "you had better have some hard proof of what you're saying."
"Egads, gossip doesn't require proof," the young man replied with a wink. "And time will soon reveal the lady's true character. Hodgeham doesn't have the means to keep a prime beauty like that - before long she'll want more than he can deliver. I predict that at the season's end, she'll sail off to the fellow with the deepest pockets."
"Which would be mine," Simon said softly.
Burdick blinked in surprise, his smile fading as he wondered if he had heard correctly. "Wha - "
"I've watched as you and the pack of idiots you run with have sniffed at her heels for two years," Simon said, his eyes narrowing. "Now you've lost your chance at her."
"Lost my… what do you mean by that?" Burdick asked indignantly.
"I mean that I will afflict the most acute kind of pain, mental, physical, and financial, on the first man who dares to trespass on my territory. And the next person who repeats any unsubstantiated rumors about Miss Peyton in my hearing will find it shoved right back in his throat - along with my fist." Simon's smile contained a tigerish menace as he beheld Burdick's stunned face. "Tell that to anyone who may find it of interest," he advised, and strode away from the pompous, gape-jawed little runt. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Prime quotes by John Bercow
#189. The prime minister's job is to captain his team, his party and his government. #Quote by John Bercow
Prime quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#190. SPEAKING OF PRIMING "The sight of all these people in uniforms does not prime creativity." "The world makes much less sense than you think. The coherence comes mostly from the way your mind works." "They were primed to find flaws, and this is exactly what they found." "His System 1 constructed a story, and his System 2 believed it. It happens to all of us." "I made myself smile and I'm actually feeling better! #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Prime quotes by Rene Descartes
#191. For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Prime quotes by Samuel Johnson
#192. But grant, the virtues of a temp'rate prime
Bless with an age exempt from scorn or crime;
An age that melts with unperceived decay,
And glides in modest Innocence away #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Prime quotes by James Brady
#193. We ended up our talk by my asking Dennis his feelings now about the Marines. Any regrets for all those wounds? Or about having been sent to and having to fight an unpopular war?
"No. The Marine Corps meant a tremendous amount to me. And even today I gain momentum from it. The Corps is one of the prime reasons Marines are so successful in whatever we do - because we refuse to quit. #Quote by James Brady
Prime quotes by Mordechai Vanunu
#194. We do not know which irresponsible Israeli prime minister will take office and decide to use nuclear weapons in the struggle against neighboring Arab countries. What has already been exposed about the weapons Israel is holding can destroy the region and kill millions. #Quote by Mordechai Vanunu
Prime quotes by Iain Duncan Smith
#195. You cannot stop what the public want. The public want two strong women in the final round and then a woman prime minister and I'm absolutely with that. #Quote by Iain Duncan Smith
Prime quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#196. That is why, as one who values the U.S. - Israel relationship, and loves Israel, I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister's speech - saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi

Prime quotes by Martin Jacques
#198. The election of Shinzo Abe as the leader of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic party and now prime minister will have profound repercussions for Japan and East Asia. Most western commentary during the premiership of Junichiro Koizumi has been concerned with the extent to which Japan has allowed a freer rein to market forces. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Prime quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#199. Prime Minister to the Emperor of Ethiopia 9 May 41 It is with deep and universal pleasure that the British nation and Empire have learned of Your Imperial Majesty's welcome home to your capital at Addis Ababa. Your Majesty was the first of the lawful sovereigns to be driven from his throne and country by the Fascist-Nazi criminals, and you are now the first to return in triumph. Your Majesty's thanks will be duly conveyed to the commanders, officers, and men of the British and Empire forces who have aided the Ethiopian patriots in the total and final destruction of the Italian military usurpation. His Majesty's Government look forward to a long period of peace and progress in Ethiopia after the forces of evil have been finally overthrown. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Prime quotes by Preity Zinta
#200. My mother always tells me that when I was a little kid, my first ambition was to be a truck driver, and after that, I went through everything from wanting to be a Prime Minister to an air hostess, but never an actor. So I became one, and it was a great journey. I learnt a lot, worked very hard. #Quote by Preity Zinta
