Raises quotes by Isadore Sharp
#1. Luxury, by definition, means something that appears to be the best of whatever it represents. It's a word that raises people's expectations, whether talking about clothing for women or locations for people to live You pay for recognition, but probably the most important thing it represents is delivery on the promise of the brand's name. #Quote by Isadore Sharp
Raises quotes by Joseph Addison
#2. We find that Good and Evil happen alike to all Men on this Side of the Grave; and as the principle Design of Tragedy is to raise Commiseration and Terror in the Minds of the Audience, we shall defeat this great End, if we always make Virtue and Innocence happy and successful. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Raises quotes by Denis Leary
#3. My charity is in the business of helping firefighters in any way that we can. For instance, after 9/11 we were the second-fastest charity to raise and distribute money to the widows and surviving family members of the 343 firefighters who died that day. #Quote by Denis Leary
Raises quotes by Cathy O'Neil
#4. Thanks in part to the resulting high score on the evaluation, he gets a longer sentence, locking him away for more years in a prison where he's surrounded by fellow criminals - which raises the likelihood that he'll return to prison. He is finally released into the same poor neighborhood, this time with a criminal record, which makes it that much harder to find a job. If he commits another crime, the recidivism model can claim another success. But in fact the model itself contributes to a toxic cycle and helps to sustain it. That's a signature quality of a WMD. #Quote by Cathy O'Neil
Raises quotes by Nicolas Cage
#5. The best characters are the ones that somehow manage to be both attractive and repulsive at the same time. If you do that, you're at the center of the universe - if you can find characters who are more ambiguous and can raise more questions than answers. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Raises quotes by Michelle Obama
#6. As a mom, I know it is my responsibility, and no one else's, to raise my kids. But we have to ask ourselves, what does it mean when so many parents are finding their best efforts undermined by an avalanche of advertisements aimed at our kids. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Raises quotes by Jeff Flake
#7. There are some Republicans who say that any time you raise new revenue, you have to have a tax cut to match it. I am not one of those Republicans. #Quote by Jeff Flake
Raises quotes by David Chang
#8. Say a child raises this beautiful beet. It's going to give her a sense of ownership, and that changes everything. You stop taking things for granted; you become less wasteful. #Quote by David Chang
Raises quotes by Elie Ducommun
#9. Wars, however frequent and destructive they may be, have never been able to kill entirely the intellectual and moral sense which raises man above the beast. #Quote by Elie Ducommun
Raises quotes by Roland Barthes
#10. One of the marks of our world is perhaps this reversal: we live according to a generalized image-repertoire. Consider the United Sates, where everything is transformed into images: only images exist and are produced and are consumes ... Such a reversal necessarily raises the ethical question: not that the image is immoral, irreligious, or diabolic (as some have declared it, upon the advent of the Photograph), but because, when generalized, it completely de-realizes the human world of conflicts and desires, under cover of illustrating it. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Raises quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#11. Most mother-women give up whatever ghost of a unique and human self they may have when they 'marry' and raise children. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Raises quotes by John Dominic Crossan
#12. Augustus came from a miraculous conception by the divine and human conjunction of Apollo and Atia. How does the historian respond to that story? Are there any who take it literally or even bracket its transcendental claims as beyond historical judgment or empirical test? Classical historians, no matter how religious, do not usually do so. That divergence raises an ethical problem for me. Either all such divine conceptions, from Alexander to Augustus and from the Christ to the Buddha, should be accepted literally and miraculously or all of them should be accepted metaphorically and theologically. It is not morally acceptable to say directly and openly that our story is truth but yours is myth; ours is history but yours is lie. It is even less morally acceptable to say that indirectly and covertly by manufacturing defensive or protective strategies that apply only to one's own story. This, then, #Quote by John Dominic Crossan
Raises quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#13. I don't want my kids safe and comfortable. I want them BRAVE ... I don't want to be the reason my kids choose safety over courage. I hope I never hear them say, 'Mom will freak out,' or 'My parents will never agree to this.' May my fear not bind their purpose here. Scared moms raise scared kids. Brave moms raise brave kids. Real disciples raise real disciples. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Raises quotes by Stefan Zweig
#14. There is nothing that so raises a young man's self-esteem, that so contributes to the formation of his character as for him to find himself unexpectedly confronted with a task which he has to accomplish entirely on his own initiative and by his own efforts. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Raises quotes by Frederick Lenz
#15. Your own nature is pure, spotless, and pristine. Through association we drag ourselves down or we can raise ourselves up. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Raises quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#16. As the priest is characterized by his cassock, so the smoker by his pipe. The way in which he holds it, raises it to his lips, and knocks out the ashes, reveals his personality, habits, passions, and even his thoughts. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Raises quotes by Kasie West
#17. My older brother, Lucas, is twenty and away at college."
"Those are pretty normal names."
"Normal?"
"No Chets or Wellingtons or anything."
He raises one eyebrow. "Do you know any Wellingtons?"
"Of course not, but you probably do."
"No, actually I don't. #Quote by Kasie West

#18. The Niger Delta is an occupied territory. Citizens raise their hands in the creeks each time they see the military #Quote by Nnimmo Bassey
Raises quotes by Immanuel Wallerstein
#19. The basic question that the 'new science' raises for our balance sheet is the issue of what scientific questions have not been asked for 500 years, which scientific risks have not been pursued. It raises the question of who has decided what scientific risks were worth taking, and what have been the consequences in terms of the power structures of the world. #Quote by Immanuel Wallerstein
Raises quotes by Lisa Whelchel
#20. Raise children who do the right things for the right reasons. #Quote by Lisa Whelchel
Raises quotes by Hafez
#21. A poet is someone Who can pour Light into a spoon, Then raise it To nourish Your beautiful parched, holy mouth. #Quote by Hafez

Raises quotes by Thomas Paine
#23. I know not whether taxes are raised to fight wars, or wars are fought in order to raise taxes. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Raises quotes by John E. Goldingay
#24. The imprecatory psalms are for us to pray, who are not victims. Indeed, if we do not want to pray them, it raises questions about the shallowness of our own spirituality, theology and ethics. Do we not want to see wrongdoers put down and punished? One #Quote by John E. Goldingay
Raises quotes by Mario Cuomo
#25. The Mafia is a question every time an Italian raises his head. #Quote by Mario Cuomo
Raises quotes by Don McPherson
#26. I came to realize that we don't raise boys to be men, we raise them not to be women. #Quote by Don McPherson
Raises quotes by Elizabeth O'Roark
#27. We went to Paris for our honey - " I trail off. God. I cannot believe I just said that out loud.
He stops. "You're telling me you dreamed about our honeymoon?"
I should be too upset by what this MRI might uncover to be capable of humiliation right now, but I'm not. I feel the heat in my face and there is no way to stop it. "No comment."
He raises a brow, holding the elevator door open and following me in. "Oh, you're not getting off that easily. If we had a honeymoon in Paris, I need to hear all about it. What did we do?"
I roll my eyes, trying hard not to smile. "It was December and cold as hell, and we were there on our honeymoon. What do you think we did?"
He laughs. "Wow. Any other glamorous trips where we never left the hotel? #Quote by Elizabeth O'Roark
Raises quotes by Pat Tillman
#28. So use all that is called fortune. Most men gamble with her, and gain all and lose all, as her wheel rolls ... A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. #Quote by Pat Tillman
Raises quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#29. All bowmen are caught between heaven and earth, born to discovery, choosing to love and raise their eyes high to a future that is apparent only through the strength of their hope. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Raises quotes by Charles De Lint
#30. If you cherish something enough", she told me, "it doesn't matter how old or worn or useless it's become; your caring for it immediately raises its value in somebody else's eyes. It's just like rehab- a body's got to believe in their own worth before anybody can start fixing them, but most people need someone to believe in them before they can start believing in themselves. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Raises quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#31. How can I keep my soul in me, so that it doesn't touch your soul? How can I raise it high enough, past you, to other things? #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Raises quotes by Aeschylus
#32. But when once the earth has sucked up a dead man's blood, there is no way to raise him up. #Quote by Aeschylus
Raises quotes by John Piper
#33. So when the fear of not persevering raises its head, don't try to overcome it by saying, "Oh, there is no danger, we don't need to persevere." You do. There will be no salvation in the end for people who do not fight the good fight and finish the race and keep the faith and treasure Christ's appearing. And don't try to overcome the fear of not persevering by trying to win God's favor by your exertions in godliness. God's favor comes by grace alone, on the basis of Christ alone, in union with Christ alone, through faith alone, to the glory of God alone. He is totally, 100% irrevocably for us because of the work of Christ if we are in Christ. And we are in Christ not by exertions but by receiving him as our sacrifice and perfection and Treasure. #Quote by John Piper
Raises quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#34. Paper is cheap, and authors need not now erase one book before they write another. Instead of cultivating the earth for wheat andpotatoes, they cultivate literature, and fill a place in the Republic of Letters. Or they would fain write for fame merely, as others actually raise crops of grain to be distilled into brandy. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Raises quotes by Adam Smith
#35. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Raises quotes by Anne Boleyn
#36. The king has been very good to me. He promoted me from a simple maid to be a marchioness. Then he raised me to be a queen. Now he will raise me to be a martyr. #Quote by Anne Boleyn
Raises quotes by Anna Banks
#37. She's amazing."
Galen turns to Dr. Milligan, who's standing beside him and staring at Emma as if she were floating in midair. "Yes, she is," Galen says.
Dr. Milligan looks at Galen, a knowing smile plastered on his face. "Looks like she's enchanted more than just the little fish. In fact, looks like you're worse off than any of them, my boy."
Galen shrugs. He's got nothing to hide from Dr. Milligan.
Dr. Milligan lets out his breath in a whistle. "What does Rayna say?"
"She likes her." The good doctor raises a thin gray brow. Galen sighs. "She likes her enough.."
"Well, can't ask for more than that, I suppose. Shall we, then?"
Galen nods. "Emma. Dr. Milligan is here."
Emma turns. And freezes. "You!" she chokes out. "You're Dr. Milligan?"
The older man bows his head. "Yes, young lady, I am. You remember me, then."
She nods, walking slowly toward them as if she smells a trap. "You tried to give me free season passes. You talked to me at the petting tank."
"Yes," he says. "Of course I offered you season passes. How else could I study your fascinating interaction with the specimens?"
She crosses her arms. "I didn't know I could talk to fish at the time. How did you?"
"At first I didn't," he says, closing the distance between them and gently taking her hand. "But when I saw your eye color, I knew you had to be Syrena. I remembered Galen telling me about that gift, but I never really believed it. Which is silly, I supp #Quote by Anna Banks
Raises quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#38. I am a pilgrim of the Unknown -
That is my joy.
It raises and resolves
All my conflicts.
No sooner has the Known bound me fast in her net,
Than appears the Unknown
And it bewilders me!

- Poem 30 #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Raises quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#39. He raises his head. "You're nothing like your father, Monty. For a start, you're far more decent than he is."

I'm not sure how, after all the terrible things I've done, he can possibly mean that. "You might be the only person left on earth who thinks me decent."

Between us, I feel his knuckles brush mine. Perhaps it's by chance, but it feels more like a question, and when I spread my fingers in answer, his hand slides into mine.

"Then everyone else doesn't know you. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee
Raises quotes by Chris Voss
#40. Set your target price (your goal). 2. Set your first offer at 65 percent of your target price. 3. Calculate three raises of decreasing increments (to 85, 95, and 100 percent). 4. Use lots of empathy and different ways of saying "No" to get the other side to counter before you increase your offer. 5. When calculating the final amount, use precise, nonround numbers like, say, $37,893 rather than $38,000. It gives the number credibility and weight. 6. On your final number, throw in a nonmonetary item (that they probably don't want) to show you're at your limit. The #Quote by Chris Voss
Raises quotes by Diego Rivera
#41. The artist must try to raise the level of taste of the masses, not debase himself to the level of unformed and impoverished taste. #Quote by Diego Rivera
Raises quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#42. If you cut a thing up, of course it will smell. Hence, nothing raises such an infernal stink at last, as human psychology. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Raises quotes by T. Allen Lawson
#43. It benefits all artists to help one another - it raises the whole profession. #Quote by T. Allen Lawson
Raises quotes by Victor Serge
#44. With his worn-out lungs, his obstinate self-effacement, his bookish timidity, Broux is nonetheless a strong man; by means of his awareness of how impossible it is to live, he raises himself precisely to a higher possibility of living, to an endurance which is more sure of itself because it believes it has nothing more to lose. From his weakness he was able to create a strength; from his despair, an acquiescence; from his acquiescence, a hope... #Quote by Victor Serge
Raises quotes by Rob Lowe
#45. If somebody else is achieving more than I am, that means I can do it, too. Everybody has the ability to raise themselves up, and my life has been marked by that. #Quote by Rob Lowe
Raises quotes by PewDiePie
#46. I'm so central to YouTube now, and that puts me in the spotlight and raises a lot of questions like, 'Why is he so big?' #Quote by PewDiePie
Raises quotes by Patrick Henry
#47. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Beside, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of Nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Raises quotes by Kendare Blake
#48. She raises her brows at Thomas and Carmel.
"How do you want to room? The two of you and the two of us? Or boys in one, girls in the other?"
"Boys in one," I say quickly.
"Right. Back in a minute." Jestine gets up to make the arrangements, leaving me with my gaping friends.
"Where'd that come from?" Carmel asks.
"Where'd what come from?"
As usual, playing dumb gets me nowhere. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Raises quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#49. I do not fear to die, that pang is past. God raises my weakness, and gives me courage to endure the worst. I leave a sad and bitter world; and if you remember me, and think of me as of one unjustly condemned, I am resigned to the fate awaiting me. Learn from me, dear lady, to submit in patience to the will of Heaven!"~~Justine Moritz #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Raises quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#50. Culture implies all which gives the mind possession of its own powers, as languages to the critic, telescope to the astronomer. Culture alters the political status of an individual. It raises a rival royalty in a monarchy. 'Tis king against king. It is ever a romance of history in all dynasties
the co-presence of the revolutionary force in intellect. It creates a personal independence which the monarch cannot look down, and to which he must often succumb. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Raises quotes by Simone Weil
#51. We cannot take a single step towards heaven.
It is not In our power to travel in a vertical direction.
If however we look heavenward for a long time, God comes and takes us up.
He raises us easily. #Quote by Simone Weil
Raises quotes by Don Winslow
#52. Six bad hombres have tried to kill Ramos. Ramos went to all six funerals, just in case any of the bereaved wanted to take a shot at revenge. None of them did. He calls his Uzi "Mi Esposa" - my wife. He's thirty-two years old. Within hours he has in custody the three policemen who picked up Ernie Hidalgo. One of them is the chief of the Jalisco State Police. Ramos tells Art, "We can do this the fast way or the slow way." Ramos takes two cigars from his shirt pocket, offers one to Art and shrugs when he refuses it. He takes a long time to light the cigar, rolling it so that the tip lights evenly, then takes a long pull and raises his black eyebrows at Art. The theologians are right, Art thinks - we become what we hate. Then he says, "The fast way." Ramos says. "Come back in a little while." "No," Art says. "I'll do my part." "That's a man's answer," Ramos says. "But I don't want a witness. #Quote by Don Winslow
Raises quotes by Rod Blagojevich
#53. Parents don't need government to raise their kids. That's their job. But government can help them protect their children from influences they may not want their kids exposed to. #Quote by Rod Blagojevich
Raises quotes by Hillary Clinton
#54. It is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back. We need more than a plan for the big banks. The middle class needs a raise. And we need more jobs. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Raises quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#55. Trust in Creation which is made fresh daily and doesn't suffer in translation. This God does not work in especially mysterious ways. The sun here rises and sets at six exactly. A caterpillar becomes a butterfly. A bird raises its brood in the forest and a greenheart tree will only grow from a greenheart seed. He brings drought sometimes followed by torrential rains and if these things aren't always what I had in mind, they aren't my punishment either. They're rewards, let's say for the patience of a seed. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Raises quotes by Dirk Nowitzki
#56. I want to raise a family and have a couple of small Dirks running around. But it will not be easy to win my heart. #Quote by Dirk Nowitzki
Raises quotes by Francis Schaeffer
#57. If you want a significant man, with absolutes, morality, and meaning, then you must have what the Bible insists upon - that God will judge men justly, and they will not be able to raise their voices because of the base upon which He judges them. #Quote by Francis Schaeffer
Raises quotes by Holly Madison
#58. I don't want to be too strict, because I think kids can get rebellious, but I want to raise my daughter to be passionate about doing good things and pursuing real things and hobbies instead of frivolous materialistic stuff. #Quote by Holly Madison
Raises quotes by Tobin Bell
#59. I learned that I could not do enough work; it's always incomplete. When you ask a question, the answer will raise four more questions, and those four will become eight. #Quote by Tobin Bell
Raises quotes by Ayn Rand
#60. I think it's a worthy undertaking
to provide a decent apartment for a man who earns fifteen dollars a week. But not at the expense of other men. Not if it raises the taxes, raises all the other rents and makes the man who earns forty live in a rat hole. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Raises quotes by Alan Watts
#61. Now, you see, if you understand what I'm saying, with your intelligence, and then take the next step and say "But I understood it now, but I didn't feel it." Then, next I raise the question: Why do you want to feel it? You say: "I want something more", because that's again that spiritual greed. And you could only say that because you didn't understand it. #Quote by Alan Watts
Raises quotes by Kristine Carlson
#62. Your children are your legacy to the world. As you raise them with love, you contribute to making this world a better place. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Raises quotes by Kresley Cole
#63. Sebastian glanced around. "Raises my hackles, though" - another flash of lightning - "almost like it's ... haunted." Sebastian gets a cookie. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Raises quotes by Charles Colson
#64. The true mark of a Christian leader is trying to build up other people. Raise up other leaders! #Quote by Charles Colson
Raises quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#65. There were three classes of inhabitants who either frequent or inhabit the country which we had now entered: first, the loggers, who, for a part of the year, the winter and spring, are far the most numerous, but in the summer, except for a few explorers for timber, completely desert it; second, the few settlers I have named, the only permanent inhabitants, who live on the verge of it, and help raise supplies for the former; third, the hunters, mostly Indians, who range over it in their season. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Raises quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#66. Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Raises quotes by Lea Thompson
#67. My mother told me to raise my kids with calculated neglect. They get their self-worth from doing what they can do and not having everything done for them. #Quote by Lea Thompson
Raises quotes by Haruki Murakami
#68. A sheet of white extends to the lone dark vertical of the elm tree in the centre ... It is too perfect, to inviolate ... The snow is graced with waves written by the wind, the elm raises crooked arms in sleeves of white. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Raises quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#69. He who blinded by ambition, raises himself to a position whence he cannot mount higher, must thereafter fall with the greatest loss. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Raises quotes by Nicolas Cage
#70. I want to make all kinds of movies. I do want to make big movies that are a lot of fun to go to, but I also want to make movies that are going to stimulate some thought and maybe raise some awareness. #Quote by Nicolas Cage

#71. If you can raise money, you're never going to have trouble getting a job. #Quote by Seth Godin
Raises quotes by Lisa See
#72. All women on earth
and men, too for that matter
hope for the kind of love that transforms us, raises us up out of the everyday, & gives us the courage to survive our little deaths: the heartache of unfulfilled dreams, of career and personal disappointments, of broken love affairs. #Quote by Lisa See
Raises quotes by Kekla Magoon
#73. They spin away, always away. Too fast to understand, sometimes. They rush on, but we remain. They will come back, and we will still be here, as they expect us to be. We are the guardians.
In between each small flurry, we rest. We breathe. Redeema raises her face to the sky. "My children," she murmurs, and the sound of it aches. #Quote by Kekla Magoon
Raises quotes by Everett Dirksen
#74. When a member of the House moves over to the Senate, he raises the IQ of both bodies. #Quote by Everett Dirksen
Raises quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#75. Mummy dying with it; Christ dying with it, nailed hand and foot; hanging over the bed in the night-nursery; hanging year after year in the dark little study at Farm Street with the shining oilcloth; hanging in the dark church where only the old charwoman raises the dust and one candle burns; hanging at noon, high among the crowds and the soldiers; no comfort except a sponge of vinegar and the kind words of a thief; hanging for ever; never the cool sepulchre and the grave clothes spread on the stone slab, never the oil and spices in the dark cave; always the midday sun and the dice clicking for the seamless coat. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Raises quotes by Maya Angelou
#76. Don't let anybody raise you. You've been raised. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Raises quotes by Isaac Watts
#77. No, I'll repine at death no more, But with a cheerful gasp resign To the cold dungeon of the ground These dying, withering limbs of mine. Let worms devour my wasting flesh, And crumble all my bones to dust:
My God shall raise my frame anew, At the revival of the just. #Quote by Isaac Watts
Raises quotes by Orson Scott Card
#78. How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Raises quotes by Chloe Neill
#79. Girl! I hope you did lots of nasty with Our Dear Sullivan and made us all proud. Please bring him back in a good mood. And eager to give us all raises. We need shoes. Hearts, Lindsey. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Raises quotes by Antony Flew
#80. I am open to [the notion of theistic revelation], but not enthusiastic about potential revelation from God. On the positive side, for example, I am very much impressed with physicist Gerald Schroeder's comments on Genesis 1. That this biblical account might be scientifically accurate raises the possibility that it is revelation. #Quote by Antony Flew
Raises quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#81. A teacher who can show good, or indeed astounding results while he is teaching, is still not on that account a good teacher, for it may be that, while his pupils are under his immediate influence, he raises them to a level which is not natural to them, without developing their own capacities for work at this level, so that they immediately decline again once the teacher leaves the schoolroom. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Raises quotes by David Ricardo
#82. The facility of obtaining food is beneficial in two ways to the owners of capital, it at the same time raises profits and increases the amount of consumable commodities. #Quote by David Ricardo
Raises quotes by Chaz Bufe
#83. A time-tested political tactic guaranteed to raise a president's popularity rating by at least 30 points. It is especially useful during election years and economic downturns. #Quote by Chaz Bufe
Raises quotes by Shirley Jones
#84. After I won the Oscar, my salary doubled, my friends tripled, my children became more popular at school, my butcher made a pass at me, and my maid hit me up for a raise. #Quote by Shirley Jones
Raises quotes by Kevin Costner
#85. I want to live forever, and I know I won't. I'm not afraid of dying. I'm only afraid of one thing: not being able to raise my kids. #Quote by Kevin Costner
Raises quotes by Robert Benchley
#86. A child of three cannot raise its chubby fist to its mouth to remove a piece of carpet which it is through eating, without being made the subject of a psychological seminar of child-welfare experts, and written up, along with five hundred other children of three who have put their hands to their mouths for the same reason. #Quote by Robert Benchley
Raises quotes by Will Rogers
#87. When you figure it right down, none of us are in a really essential business but the farmer, and he raises so much that even his business is partly non-essential. #Quote by Will Rogers
Raises quotes by Andy Hargreaves
#88. Don't raise the bar and narrow the gap, but narrow the gap to raise the bar. #Quote by Andy Hargreaves
Raises quotes by Carla Gugino
#89. I always feel like I want to work with people who raise my game, and I can do the same for them, and we can jump off the cliff together. #Quote by Carla Gugino
Raises quotes by Tony Leuzzi
#90. Writing is not always a priority. . . .I only write those things that are necessary for me to write. I love to write, and when I'm not writing, I often feel as if I'm betraying my art, my gift, my calling, but that sensation is probably hubris or neurosis as much as anything else. The problem, and one of the joys of writing poetry, is that none of us can really count on entering the canon. The chances are that none of our work will survive long after we're gone. That's just the way it is. To feel otherwise is foolish. we write in competition with the dead for the attention of the unborn. We are writing poems that are trying to take the attention of people away from Sappho, Shakespeare, Whitman, and Baudelaire. Good luck to you! There's a built-in failure to writing poetry that I find comforting.
If you know you're doomed to failure, then you can work freely. People who think their work is going to last, or that it matters, well . . . I always try to disabuse my students of their desire to write for fame. I ask them, "Who here has read Shakespeare?" Everyone raises his or her hand. We agree that his work is immortal, then I remind them: "he's still dead. He's as dead as he'd have been if you hadn't read him; and you'll be dead too someday, no matter how well you write." To sacrifice your life for your art is an appalling notion. On the other hand, I have been called to be a poet, ad it's an unimaginably rich gift. Like every artist, I know that in order to be a moral, eff #Quote by Tony Leuzzi
Raises quotes by Helen Quist Milligan
#91. In choosing a mate, don't pick the tallest and most handsome or the most beautiful. Don't choose one just because that person raises your physical passions. Look for the person who is good from within, the one with substance and worth. #Quote by Helen Quist Milligan
Raises quotes by Joe Dempsie
#92. Concept is what makes actors raise their game. #Quote by Joe Dempsie
Raises quotes by Bill Nye
#93. Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found. #Quote by Bill Nye

Raises quotes by Cameron Sinclair
#96. Design is about creating spaces for people to enjoy and of course, creating moments where you elevate the spirit, but 'design for good' is figuring out a program that not only creates better spaces, but creates jobs, creates new industry and really kind of raises the conversation about how we rebuild. #Quote by Cameron Sinclair
Raises quotes by Christine De Pizan
#97. [W]hen someone finds himself quite unjustly attacked and hated on all sides, there is no need for such a person to feel dismayed by misfortune. See how Fortune, who has harmed many a one, is so inconstant, for God, Who opposes all wrong deeds, raises up those in whom hope dwells. #Quote by Christine De Pizan

#101. Beauty is not the divine in a cloak of physical reality; no, it is physical reality in a cloak that is divine. The artist does not bring the divine on to the earth by letting it flow into the world; he raises the world into the sphere of the divine. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner

#102. When fear raises it's head, don't freak, look it in the eye, ask it its name and what it wants to teach you, then invite it to dance, pull it in real close and let it know that this is your life and your dance and you'll be taking the lead. #Quote by Les Dossey
Raises quotes by Marlon Brando
#103. I think Robert F. Kennedy really, finally, cared; he realized that all of the rhetoric had to be put down into some form of action. That's perhaps the reason they killed him. They don't care what you say, you can say as much as you want to, provided you don't do anything. If you start to do something and your shuffling raises too much dust, they will disestablish you. That's what happened to Martin Luther King. #Quote by Marlon Brando

#104. And what is a man? He is someone who rises when life has knocked him down. He is someone who raises his fist to heaven when a storm has ruined his crop
and then plants again. And again. A man remains unbroken by the savage twists of fate.
That man may never win. But when he sees himself reflected, he can be proud of what he sees. For low he may be in the present scheme of things: peasant, serf, or dispossessed. But he is unconquerable #Quote by David Gemmell

#106. You've earned an honorable death, creature." He meets my gaze; his eyes begin to glow, as if filled with stars. I can't look away. "This will not hurt for long."

There is no sympathy in Death's starry eyes, nothing but resolve as he secures my wrists, pinning them with one gloved hand. He raises the other to his mouth, using his teeth to tug off the gauntlet.

To touch me.

I woke, shooting upright. Death was in my dreams and in my mind. It was as if I could sense his presence in my head, a heavy feeling. Like being possessed. #Quote by Kresley Cole

But where it is a work of beauty it has no question to answer; it has nothing to do, but to be. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore

To hide my awkwardness, I mime taking a gun out of my pocket and toss it aside. He reaches into an imaginary shoulder holsters and takes out a gun, putting it on his planner. I unsheathe an invisible knife from my thigh.

"All of them." I indicate under the desk. He reaches down to his ankle and pretends to take a handgun out of an ankle holster.

"That's better." I sink into my chair and close my eyes.

"You're deeply weird, Shortcake." His voice is not unkind. I force my eyes open and the Staring Game almost kills me. His eyes are the blue of a peacock's chest. Everything is changing. #Quote by Sally Thorne

#120. When the Archives file out of the room, Galen turns to Emma. She's ready for him. She holds up her shushing finger. "Don't even," she says. "I was going to tell you, but I just didn't have a chance."
"Tell me now," he says. "Since it seems I'm the last to know." He isn't the last to know, of course. But he'd really hoped she would come to him with it. Before now. Before it became an issue for other people.
She raises a hesitant brow.
"Please," he grates out.
She sighs in a gust. "I still don't think it's important at the moment, but when Rayna took off for the Arena, I hoped on one of the jet skis and tried to follow. But," she amends, "I did not intend to get in the water. I swear I didn't. It's just that Goliath wanted to play, and he tipped over the"-she must sense all his patience oozing out-"anyway, so I come across this Syrena, Jasa, and she's been caught in a net and two men are pulling her aboard. So me and Goliath helped her."
"Where are the fishermen now?"
"Um. Unless Rachel did something drastic, they're probably at home telling their kids crazy stories about mermaids."
Galen feels a sense of control slipping, but of what he's not sure. For centuries, the Syrena have remained unnoticed by humans. Now within the span of a week, they've allowed themselves to be captured twice. He hopes this does not become a pattern.
Toraf must have mistaken his long pause for brooding. "Don't be too hard on her, Galen," he says. "I told you, E #Quote by Anna Banks
Raises quotes by Milton Friedman
#121. When unions get higher wages for their members by restricting entry into an occupation, those higher wages are at the expense of other workers who find their opportunities reduced. When government pays its employees higher wages, those higher wages are at the expense of the taxpayer. But when workers get higher wages and better working conditions through the free market, when they get raises by firm competing with one another for the best workers, by workers competing with one another for the best jobs, those higher wages are at nobody's expense. They can only come from higher productivity, greater capital investment, more widely diffused skills. The whole pie is bigger - there's more for the worker, but there's also more for the employer, the investor, the consumer, and even the tax collector.

That's the way the free market system distributes the fruits of economic progress among all people. That's the secret of the enormous improvements in the conditions of the working person over the past two centuries. #Quote by Milton Friedman

#124. In a way it is even humiliating to watch coal-miners working. It raises in you a momentary doubt about your own status as an 'intellectual' and a superior person generally. For it is brought home to you, at least while you are watching, that it is only because miners sweat their guts out that superior persons can remain superior. You and I and the editor of the Times Lit. Supp., and the Nancy poets and the Archbishop of Canterbury and Comrade X, author of Marxism for Infants – all of us really owe the comparative decency of our lives to poor drudges underground, blackened to the eyes, with their throats full of coal dust, driving their shovels forward with arms and belly muscles of steel. #Quote by George Orwell

Raises quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#130. At issue here is the question: "To whom do I belong? God or to the world?" Many of my daily preoccupations suggest that I belong more to the world than to God. A little criticism makes me angry, and a little rejection makes me depressed. A little praise raises my spirits, and a little success excites me. It takes very little to raise me up or thrust me down. Often I am like a small boat on the ocean, completely at the mercy of its waves. All the time and energy I spend in keeping some kind of balance and preventing myself from being tipped over and drowning shows that my life is mostly a struggle for survival: not a holy struggle, but an anxious struggle resulting from the mistaken idea that it is the world that defines me.

As long as I keep running about asking: "Do you love me? Do you really love me?" I give all power to the voices of the world and put myself in bondage because the world is filled with "ifs." The world says: "Yes, I love you if you are good-looking, intelligent, and wealthy. I love you if you have a good education, a good job, and good connections. I love you if you produce much, sell much, and buy much." There are endless "ifs" hidden in the world's love. These "ifs" enslave me, since it is impossible to respond adequately to all of them. The world's love is and always will be conditional. As long as I keep looking for my true self in the world of conditional love, I will remain "hooked" to the world-trying, failing,and trying again.

"Here," he says. "You must try this." As she takes the bite, he uses his thumb to discreetly wipe the tear that falls down her cheek.

"I'm sorry," he says softly. "I suppose I haven't even tried to consider your point of view. It was thoughtless of me."

"It is all right," Mirabella says. "Does she know that you love her?"

Billy raises his eyebrows.

"Why would she when I didn't? It wasn't like I read in books. A thunderclap. Eyes meeting. Tortured glances. With Arsinoe it was more like . . . having cold water poured down your back and learning to enjoy it."

"And does she love you?"

"I don't know. I think she might." He smiles. "I hope she does."

"I hope so too." Another tear slides down her cheek, and Billy darts forward to discreetly hide it.

Billy sets down his fork, insulted. Then they both begin to laugh. #Quote by Kendare Blake

#139. She raises her arms in an effort to hook at the nape of her neck a gown of black veiling. She cannot: no, she cannot. She moves backwards towards me mutely. I raise my arms to help her: her arms fall. I hold the websoft edges of her gown and drawing them out to hook them I see through the opening of the black veil her lithe body sheathed in an orange shift. It slips its ribbons of moorings at her shoulders and falls slowly: a lithe smooth naked body shimmering with silvery scales. It slips slowly over the slender buttocks of smooth polished silver and over their furrow, a tarnished silver shadow.... Fingers, cold and calm and moving.... A touch, a touch. #Quote by James Joyce
Raises quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#140. For mothers, some mothers, my mother, daughters are division and sons are multiplication; the former reduce them, fracture them, take from them, the latter augment and enhance. My mother, who would light up at the thought that my brothers were handsome, rankled at the idea that I might be nice-looking. The queen's envy of Snow White is deadly. It's based on the desire to be the most beautiful of all, and it raises the question of whose admiration she needs and what she thinks Snow White is competing for, this child whose beauty is an affliction. At the back of this drama between women are men, the men for whom the queen wants to be beautiful, the men whose attention is the arbiter of worth and worthlessness. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit

#149. when she was 7, a boy pushed her on the playground
she fell headfirst into the dirt and came up with a mouthful of gravel and lines of blood chasing each other down her legs
when she told her teacher what happened, she laughed and said 'boys will be boys honey don't let it bother you
he probably just thinks you're cute'
but the thing is,
when you tell a little girl who has rocks in her teeth and scabs on her knees that hurt and attention are the same
you teach her that boys show their affection through aggression
and she grows into a young woman who constantly mistakes the two
because no one ever taught her the difference
'boys will be boys'
turns into
'that's how he shows his love'
and bruises start to feel like the imprint of lips
she goes to school with a busted mouth in high school and says she was hit with a basketball instead of his fist
the one adult she tells scolds her
'you know he loses his temper easily
why the hell did you have to provoke him?'
so she shrinks
folds into herself, flinches every time a man raises his voice
by the time she's 16 she's learned her job well

#150. Biblical higher criticism is preserved in the particular enclave of academic Christian scholarship and is thought to be too unfruitful to share with the average pew-sitter, for it raises more questions than the church can adequately answer.

In this way that ever-widening gap between academic Christians and the average pew-sitter made its first appearance. #Quote by John Shelby Spong

In the same way the lifted leg of an arabesque becomes a wing, and not a mechanical leverage like a raised trap door. This is the precise difference between dancing and acrobatics.

#164. When top executives get huge pay hikes at the same time as middle-level and hourly workers lose their jobs and retirement savings, or have to accept negligible pay raises and cuts in health and pension benefits, company morale plummets. I hear it all the time from employees: This company, they say, is being run only for the benefit of the people at the top. So why should we put in extra effort, commit extra hours, take on extra responsibilities? We'll do the minimum, even cut corners. This is often the death knell of a company. #Quote by Robert Reich

Perhaps the most striking aspect of this entire subject is that there are nonhuman primates so close to the edge of language, so willing to learn, so entirely competent in its use and inventive in its application once the language is taught. But this raises a curious question: Why are they all on the edge? Why are there no nonhuman primates with an existing complex gestural language? One possible answer, it seems to me, is that humans have systematically exterminated those other primates who displayed signs of intelligence. #Quote by Carl Sagan

#171. All the energy is destroyed due to conflict. That is why the infinite energy of the soul does not manifest (is not seen). If the slightest negative intent occurs, or the eye raises (on someone), it is conflict. What happens if you collide with a wall? You will crack your head. In the absence of conflict alone, man could go to moksha. If one learns only this: 'I do not want to get into conflict with anyone', he will go directly to moksha. Then no guru or anyone else would be needed in between. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan

#177. With motherhood and marriage there was no finish line, no hour or day or year when you got to say you were through. Life just went on and on, endless and formless, with no performance evaluation, no raises or feedback or two weeks' vacation. #Quote by Jennifer Weiner
Raises quotes by Martha Smith
#178. I think the Bravo test is really important for a number of reasons. It's kind of symbolic. It raises a lot of the issues that are related to the whole controversy over nuclear testing. #Quote by Martha Smith

Raises quotes by Murong Xuecun
#181. Unfortunately, I have dedicated great effort to the task of compiling this 'sensitive words glossary,' and I have mastered my filtering skills. I knew which words and sentences had to be cut, and I accepted the cutting as if that was the way it should be. In fact, I will often take it on myself to save time and cut a few words. I call this 'castrated writing' - - I am a proactive eunuch, I have already castrated myself before the surgeon raises his scalpel. #Quote by Murong Xuecun
Raises quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#182. The idea is that of the earth not only becoming covered with myriad grains of thought, but becoming enclosed in a single thinking envelope so as to form, functionally, no more than a single vast grain of thought on the sidereal scale, the plurality of individual reflections grouping themselves together and reinforcing one another in the act of a single unanimous reflection ... A new domain of psychical expansion- that is what we lack. And it is staring us in the face if we would only raise our heads to look at it. #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Raises quotes by Denis De Rougemont
#183. Passion and marriage are essentially irreconcilable. Their origins and their ends make them mutually exclusive. Their co-existence in our midst constantly raises insoluble problems, and the strife thereby engendered constitutes a persistent danger for every one of our social safeguards. #Quote by Denis De Rougemont
Raises quotes by Sadie Jones
#184. When I was a child, I wanted to raise horses in Wyoming or be a cabin boy on a pirate ship. #Quote by Sadie Jones
Raises quotes by Henry Rosovsky
#185. I focus on faculty, as opposed to facilities, budgets, endowments or students. I do so because I believe, based on many decades of work as a teacher, a scholar and an administrator, that the quality of the faculty determines the quality of the university. Everything else flows from the quality of the faculty. If the faculty are good, you will attract good students and you will have alumni who will raise funds for you. #Quote by Henry Rosovsky
Raises quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#186. I cry to you, my Lord, my rock! Do not be deaf to me, for if you are silent, I shall go down to the pit like the rest. Hear my voice raised in petition as I cry to you for help, as I raise my hands, my Lord, toward your holy of holies. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Raises quotes by Emmanuelle Beart
#187. I just decided that I would not put my professional life on hold to raise children. I know that sounds selfish to a lot of people and I don't know if what I'm doing is the right thing. But that's the way I'm doing it. #Quote by Emmanuelle Beart
Raises quotes by E.L. James
#188. I watch as he moves gracefully through his kitchen. He's so at ease with his body on one level, but then he doesn't like to be touched... so maybe deep down he isn't. No man is an island, I muse – except perhaps Christian Grey.
'What are you thinking?' he asks, pulling me from my reverie. I flush.
'I was just watching the way you move.'
He raises an eyebrow, amused.
'And?' he says dryly.
I flush some more.
'You're very graceful.'
'Why thank you, Miss Steele' he murmurs. #Quote by E.L. James
Raises quotes by David Bentley Hart
#189. The claim that there cannot be an infinite regress of contingent ontological causes raises a truly difficult challenge to pure materialism; but to imagine that it can be extended to undermine the claim that there must be an absolute ontological cause is to fall prey to an obvious category error. #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Raises quotes by Chester A. Arthur
#190. Well, there doesn't seem anything else for an ex-President to do but to go into the country and raise big pumpkins. #Quote by Chester A. Arthur
Raises quotes by Murray Bookchin
#191. [The] term 'libertarian' itself, to be sure, raises a problem, notably, the specious identification of an anti-authoritarian ideology with a straggling movement for 'pure capitalism' and 'free trade.' This movement never created the word: it appropriated it from the anarchist movement of the [nineteenth] century. And it should be recovered by those anti-authoritarians ... who try to speak for dominated people as a whole, not for personal egotists who identify freedom with entrepreneurship and profit. #Quote by Murray Bookchin

#193. Maybe if you had focused a little more in school, you could have gotten some scholar..." "No!" Owen shouts, plugging his ears. "How dare you speak that word in my presence?" "What word?" Liam asks with a chuckle. He raises his voice purposefully. "Scholarships? #Quote by Loretta Lost
Raises quotes by Giorge Leedy
#194. DICK'S DESIRE

Dick's eyes-
Soft, cold, and blue-
Meet Devonshire's-
Dark, sexy, and yearning.

Turning away-
Dick grabs two packets of sugar-
While Devonshire's eyes-
Are still upon him-
Pondering his every move.

Is Dick a playboy,
A ladies' man,
A mans' man,
Or a killer?

Does his sex long for,
Something hard-
Or something soft?

Does he need cream in his coffee-
The screaming splash of a man,
Or the sweet flow of a woman?

Finishing up at the bar-
Dick turns to leave-
Meets Devonshire's gaze again-
Hot, thirsty, and longing-
But full of trepidation.

Following the flow of etiquette-
Dick shoots out of the cafe,
Past Devonshire,
And into a world of dashed hopes,
And regrets.

But Devonshire-
No longer of two worlds-
Rises in pursuit-
Goes after Dick,
And taps him on the shoulder.

Dick gives a turn,
Raises his shoulders,
And smiles with interest-
Taking Devonshire's hand,
And asking his name.

Devonshire answers-
Desire.

Dick invites Devonshire to dinner,
Where he eats everything,
Swallowing Dick's life stories,
And devouring his misgivings.

For dessert,
Devonshire takes Dick home,
Into his bed,
Against his flesh,
And gives Dick all of him-
His deepest desires,< #Quote by Giorge Leedy

#195. When she lowers her eyes she seems to hold all the beauty in the world between her eyelids; when she raises them I see only myself in her gaze. #Quote by Natalie Clifford Barney

Raises quotes by William L. Shirer
#197. Germany no longer feels bound by the Locarno Treaty. In the interest of the primitive rights of its people to the security of their frontier and the safeguarding of their defence, the German Government has re-established, as from today, the absolute and unrestricted sovereignty of the Reich in the demilitarized zone!" Now the six hundred deputies, personal appointees all of Hitler, little men with big bodies and bulging necks and cropped hair and pouched bellies and brown uniforms and heavy boots, little men of clay in his fine hands, leap to their feet like automatons, their right arms upstretched in the Nazi salute, and scream Heils, the first two or three wildly, the next twenty-five in unison, like a college yell. Hitler raises his hand for silence. It comes slowly. Slowly the automatons sit down. Hitler now has them in his claws. He appears to sense it. He says in a deep, resonant voice: "Men of the German Reichstag!" The silence is utter. #Quote by William L. Shirer

#198. When I think about writers who use fiction as social commentary and to raise social awareness but who are also very popular, I think of Dickens. #Quote by Jodi Picoult

#200. Hail to St. Aegolius Our Alma Mater. Hail, our song we raise in praise of thee Long in the memory of every loyal owl Thy splendid banner emblazoned be. Now to thy golden talons Homage we're bringing. Guiding symbol of our hopes and fears Hark to the cries of eternal praises ringing Long may we triumph in the coming years. - The Owls of St. Aegolius #Quote by Kathryn Lasky
