Rare Things quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#3. Seen from a lower point of view, the Constitution, with all its faults, is very good; the law and the courts are very respectable;even this State and this American government are, in many respects, very admirable, and rare things, to be thankful for, such as a great many have described them; but seen from a point of view a little higher, they are what I have described them; seen from a higher still, and the highest, who shall say what they are, or that they are worth looking at or thinking of at all? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Rare Things quotes by William, Saroyan

Rare Things quotes by Sei Shonagon
#7. 71. Rare Things-- A son-in-law who's praised by his wife's father. Likewise, a wife who's loved by her mother-in-law.

A pair of silver tweezers that can actually pull out hairs properly.

A retainer who doesn't speak ill of his master.

A person who is without a single quirk. Someone who's superior in both appearance and character, and who's remained utterly blameless throughout his long dealings with the world.

You never find an instance of two people living together who continue to be overawed by each other's excellence and always treat each other with scrupulous care and respect, so such a relationship is obviously a great rarity.

Copying out a tale or a volume of poems without smearing any ink on the book you're copying from. If you're copying it from some beautiful bound book, you try to take immense care, but somehow you always manage to get ink on it.

Two women, let alone a man and a woman, who vow themselves to each other forever, and actually manage to remain on good terms to the end. #Quote by Sei Shonagon
Rare Things quotes by Taylor Swift
#8. Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Rare Things quotes by Junot Diaz
#9. Love was a rare thing, easily confused with a million other things, and if anybody knew this to be true it was him. #Quote by Junot Diaz
Rare Things quotes by Emma Cline
#10. The filmmaker wanted me to know what I already knew: I had no power. He saw my need and used it against me. My hatred for him was immediate. Like the first swallow of milk that's already gone off - rot strafing the nostrils, flooding the entire skull. The filmmaker laughed at me, and so did the others, the older man who would later place my hand on his dick while he drove me home. None of this was rare. Things like this happened hundreds of times. Maybe more. The hatred that vibrated beneath the surface of my girl's face - I think Suzanne recognized it. #Quote by Emma Cline
Rare Things quotes by Cynthia Hand
#11. I don't get the point, really," I'd said as we contemplated the plastic-wrapped roses. "Why give a girl something that's supposed to represent love that's only going to wilt and die in a matter of hours?"
Steven laughed and said that was a pretty pessimistic way to view life, and I shrugged.
Then he said, "All the best things are like that, though, Lex, the most beautiful things. Part of the beauty comes from the fact that they're short-lived." He picked up a bouquet of deep-red roses, held it out to me. "These will never be as beautiful as they are at this moment, so we have to enjoy them now."
I stared at him. He scratched the back of his neck, a little red-faced, then gave me a sheepish grin. "Just call me a romantic," he said.
I wanted to say that there were some things in this world, some rare things, that were beautiful and stayed that way. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Rare Things quotes by John Maus
#12. The man believes the woman's got the hidden secret. That's a rare thing. You meet lots of people, and they're all deserved of love, of course, but romantic love involves some kind of supplement: she has the secret. That's what's desired. #Quote by John Maus
Rare Things quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#13. If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Rare Things quotes by Erika Swyler
#14. His words are heavy with rare things: care and possibility. #Quote by Erika Swyler
Rare Things quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#15. That wind! ... it called to mind the small, scarce, stemmy flowers that she and Edmund would walk half a day to pick, though in another day they would all be wilted. Sometimes Edmund would carry buckets and a trowel, and lift them earth and all, and bring them home to plant, and they would die. They were rare things, and grew out of ants' nests and bear dung and the flesh of perished animals. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Rare Things quotes by Ken Watanabe
#16. The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one and it would not be a wasted life. #Quote by Ken Watanabe
Rare Things quotes by Rick Yune
#17. Its a rare thing when a father and son can share the same experience. My father and I have seen all 19 Bond films together, two or three times. #Quote by Rick Yune
Rare Things quotes by Francois Rabelais
#18. It is quite a common and vulgar thing among humans to understand, foresee, know and predict the troubles of others. But oh what a rare thing it is to predict, know, foresee and understand one's own troubles. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
Rare Things quotes by Beth Revis
#19. He treats books like treasured, rare things, and I guess they are, but my father used to dog-ear books and read them until they fell apart, and I like his method better #Quote by Beth Revis
Rare Things quotes by Nursultan Nazarbayev
#20. North Eurasia is one of the best examples of religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence of Islam and Christianity. This is a rare thing in today's world, even in its most liberal parts. #Quote by Nursultan Nazarbayev
Rare Things quotes by Alex Ferguson
#21. In England, it's a rare thing to see a player smoking but, all in all, I prefer that to an alcoholic. The relationship with alcohol is a real problem in English football and, in the short term, it's much more harmful to a sportsman. It weakens the body, which becomes more susceptible to injury. #Quote by Alex Ferguson
Rare Things quotes by Matt Czuchry
#22. I'm grateful that on a lot of casts I've gained friends for life. But it's more of a rare thing than a normal thing. I have a small group of friends, and I just, uh, feel fulfilled by the people that are in my life. #Quote by Matt Czuchry
Rare Things quotes by John Astin
#23. United Artists wanted to do records with me. I had no idea, what a rare thing that was ... to make an album. And they put a guy with me working on songs, and I got busy with films. I just kind of let it slide. Isn't that amazing? #Quote by John Astin
Rare Things quotes by Stephanie Garber
#24. Legend did not believe in endings.
For most of his immortal life, he believed his world would come crashing down if he fell in love and became human. Instead, his world had become more precious, particularly the pieces involving her.
He stifled a laugh as he read her letter again. Tella wouldn't like it if she knew he was laughing, but she was one of the rare things he found funny.
It was one of the many reasons he loved her. #Quote by Stephanie Garber
Rare Things quotes by Mark Morford
#25. RJD was pretty much heavy metal personified, a tiny 5-foot-4-inch sorcerer with a mangy mane, demonic eyes and sly grin, all coupled to a simply huge, operatic voice, a diminutive powerhouse who prowled the stage like a feline elf and who was, it turns out, also finely intelligent and well spoken, an actual gentleman in a genre known all too well for its bombastic, monosyllabic doltbuckets. A rare thing indeed. #Quote by Mark Morford
Rare Things quotes by Confucius
#26. A fool marvels at rare things, but a wise man at common ones. #Quote by Confucius
Rare Things quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#27. There is no harder lesson for man to learn than the lesson of humility. It is the rarest of all gifts. It is a very rare thing to find a man or woman that is following closely the footsteps of the Master in meekness and humility. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Rare Things quotes by Ralph Strangis
#28. It's a great feeling to be a part of something - see it from beginning to end - and it's a rare thing that anyone gets to do in any business. #Quote by Ralph Strangis
Rare Things quotes by Matthew Ashford
#29. It's a rare thing to find somebody you can work with, work off of, and have fun with. #Quote by Matthew Ashford
Rare Things quotes by Taylor Swift
#30. If you're the girl that needs a boyfriend, and once she loses that boyfriend needs to replace it with a different boyfriend, it's just this constant stream of boyfriends all the time. I don't feel like I ever want to be that girl. I want to be the girl that when she falls in love, it's a big deal and it's a rare thing. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Rare Things quotes by Alex Flinn
#31. A boy admiring a pretty girl. A rare thing to be certain. But love-true love-is something else. #Quote by Alex Flinn
Rare Things quotes by Thomas Bailey Aldrich
#32. The ability to have our own way, and at the same time convince others they are having their own way, is a rare thing among men. Among women it is as common as eyebrows. #Quote by Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Rare Things quotes by Kevin Powers
#33. To continue, I had to see the world with clear eyes, to focus on the essential. We only pay attention to rare things, and death was not rare. #Quote by Kevin Powers
Rare Things quotes by Paul Murray
#34. When he gets up he spends an hour kicking and stamping on his French horn so he will not have to play it again. Music, maths, these are things that no longer make any sense to him. They are too perfect, they do not belong here. He does not khow how he ever believed this universe could be a symphony played on super-strings, when it sounds like shit, played on shit. #Quote by Paul Murray
Rare Things quotes by Justin Theroux
#35. I haven't had a chance to pick up a good book in a long time, because I've been either reading scripts or learning them or writing them. And so, by the time the day is done, I usually just want to click on The Bachelor and fall asleep. But I gravitate toward biographies and things like that. #Quote by Justin Theroux
Rare Things quotes by Matthew Arnold
#36. Whoever sets himself to see things as they are will find himself one of a very small circle but it is only by this small circle resolutely doing its own work that adequate ideas will ever get current at all. #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Rare Things quotes by Luanne Rice
#37. People who don't like doing things together probably ... well probably shouldn't get married. #Quote by Luanne Rice
Rare Things quotes by Frederick Lenz
#38. When you understand dharma, when you see its perfect perfection, shining both in and beyond all things, you will be freed from all misunderstandings. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Rare Things quotes by Honore De Balzac
#39. Am fully convinced that it is impossible for a woman, even if she were born close to a throne, to acquire before the age of five-and-twenty the encyclopaedic knowledge of trifles, the practice of manoeuvring, the important small things, the musical tones and harmony of coloring, the angelic bedevilments and innocent cunning, the speech and the silence, the seriousness and the banter, the wit and the obtuseness, the diplomacy and the ignorance which make up the perfect lady. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Rare Things quotes by Colbie Caillat
#40. I miss everything about you
Can't believe that I still want you
And after all the things we've been through #Quote by Colbie Caillat
Rare Things quotes by Harper Lee
#41. Things are never as bad as they seem. #Quote by Harper Lee
Rare Things quotes by Pema Chodron
#42. You're the only one who knows when you're using things to protect yourself and keep your ego together and when you're opening and letting things fall apart, letting the world come as it is - working with it rather than struggling against it. You're the only one who knows. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Rare Things quotes by Mae Whitman
#43. For me, one thing I love is having an arc for a character. #Quote by Mae Whitman
Rare Things quotes by James Frey
#44. They say confront the difficult while it is easy, accomplish the great one step at a time. They say let things come and let things go and live without possession and live without expectation. #Quote by James Frey
Rare Things quotes by Ronnie Apteker
#45. What is it about business that makes us laugh - when things go wrong, which they do all the time (why, I still wish I knew) then we need to laugh. #Quote by Ronnie Apteker
Rare Things quotes by Charles Frazier
#46. How embarrassing that she ever did something that silly. But, good God, she was seventeen. At that age, we're mostly high-pitched and crazy. All urgent chemicals raging around the blood course. And that's why we do dangerous and embarrassing things, as if simultaneously we're immortal and going to die tomorrow. And that's why we look back on that time so fondly from the dimmer years to come. Remembering the days when we were like Greek gods. Mighty and idiotic. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Rare Things quotes by Dave Eggers
#47. She needs a new journal. The one she has is problematic. To get to the present, she needs to page through the past, and when she does, she remembers things, and her new journal entries become, for the most part, reactions to the days she regrets, wants to correct, rewrite. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Rare Things quotes by Serge Nubret
#48. Genetics help to some degree, but the most important thing is the mind and the spirit. These two are even more powerful than physical characteristics that are passed on. #Quote by Serge Nubret
Rare Things quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#49. To know oneself is one of the most difficult things because in the observation of myself I come to a conclusion about what I am seeing; and the next observation is through that conclusion. Can one observe the actual anger without any conclusion, without saying right, wrong, good, bad? Can one observe holistically? Self-knowledge is not knowing oneself, but knowing every movement of thought. Because the self is the thought, the image, the image of K and the image of the `me.' So, watch every movement of thought, never letting one thought go without realizing what it is. Try it. Do it and you will see what takes place. This gives muscle to the brain.
from: Exploration into Insight, Foreword #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Rare Things quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#50. I know very little with anything approaching certainty. I know that I was born, that I exist, and that I will die. For the most part, I can trust my brain's interpretation of the data presented to my senses: this is a rose, that is a car, she is my wife. I do not doubt the reality of the thoughts and emotions and impulses I experience in response to these things. . . . Yet apart from these primary perceptions, intuitions, inferences, and bits of information, the views that I hold about the things that really matter to me--meaning, truth, happiness, goodness, beauty--are finely woven tissues of belief and opinion. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor
Rare Things quotes by Penelope Ward
#51. I never stopped thinking about you. All of these years, they feel like a blur. I look at you sitting in front of me right now, and I'm feeling all of the same things I did when we were together. #Quote by Penelope Ward
Rare Things quotes by Michael Symon
#52. Go to the grocery store and buy better things. Buy quality, buy organic, buy natural, go to the farmers market. Immediately that's going to increase the quality of the food you make. #Quote by Michael Symon
Rare Things quotes by Hugh Prather
#53. By approaching my problems with "What might make things a little better?" rather than "What is the solution?" I avoid setting myself up for certain frustration. My experience has shown me that I am not going to solve anything in one stroke; at best I am only going to chip away at it. #Quote by Hugh Prather
Rare Things quotes by Washington Gladden
#54. No, there are no long stages of preparation through which you must pass; all things are now ready; there is nothing to hinder you from becoming a Christian this very hour. And, if any of you have been trying to make yourself better until you are weary and discouraged in the work, all you have to do is to put it into stronger hands. #Quote by Washington Gladden
Rare Things quotes by T.D. Jakes
#55. Stop watering things that were never meant to grow in your life. Water what works, what's good, what's right. Stop playing around with those dead bones and stuff you can't fix, its over ... leave it alone! You're coming into a season of greatness. If you water what's alive and divine, you will see harvest like you've never seen before. Stop wasting water on dead issues, dead relationships, dead people, a dead past. No matter how much you water concrete, you can't grow a garden. #Quote by T.D. Jakes
Rare Things quotes by Maurice Merleau-Ponty
#56. I rediscover the world - which I had distinguished from myself as a sum of things or of processes tied together through causal relations - 'in myself' as the permanent horizon of all of my thoughts and as a dimension in relation to which I never cease situating myself. #Quote by Maurice Merleau-Ponty
Rare Things quotes by James Atlas
#57. All of us, I suspect, imagine that a world exists from which we alone have been excluded; all of us have our noses pressed against the glass. But if we contemplate our own lives, not the phantom life on the other side, we might find things in them to envy-a family that's intact; a job we like; excellent health (the thing we take for granted and on which all happiness depends). Good fortune is there, however sporadic, however modest, however difficult to achieve. The trick is to recognize it. #Quote by James Atlas
Rare Things quotes by Rachel Autumn Deering
#58. She had developed a number of habits in her younger years, none of which carried with them a bright future, and the things she would offer to do for a couple of dollars would make the Devil blush. #Quote by Rachel Autumn Deering
Rare Things quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#59. decided then that I don't want to spend time thinking about things that I don't want to have a place in my life. You have to kick people out of your head as forcefully as you'd kick someone out of your house if you didn't want them to be there. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Rare Things quotes by Marat Safin
#60. Wimbledon is not the tournament I love. I don't like how they treat the players. There are small things that don't cost them anything and they make such a big deal out of it. If they treat us this way, well, we have to treat them the same. We want to be respected, the way we respect Wimbledon, even if it is not the best Grand Slam on earth. #Quote by Marat Safin
Rare Things quotes by Carrie Fisher
#61. Statistics say that a range of mental disorders affects more than one in four Americans in any given year. That means millions of Americans are totally batshit.
but having perused the various tests available that they use to determine whether you're manic depressive. OCD, schizo-affective, schizophrenic, or whatever, I'm surprised the number is that low. So I have gone through a bunch of the available tests, and I've taken questions from each of them, and assembled my own psychological evaluation screening which I thought I'd share with you.
So, here are some of the things that they ask to determine if you're mentally disordered
1. In the last week, have you been feeling irritable?
2. In the last week, have you gained a little weight?
3. In the last week, have you felt like not talking to people?
4. Do you no longer get as much pleasure doing certain things as you used to?
5. In the last week, have you felt fatigued?
6. Do you think about sex a lot?
If you don't say yes to any of these questions either you're lying, or you don't speak English, or you're illiterate, in which case, I have the distinct impression that I may have lost you a few chapters ago. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Rare Things quotes by Don Berry
#62. Now it occurred to him the changes of mental state that might be important were just such minor things as this abnormal irritability. Not so dramatic as visions and fevers, maybe. But important. An attitude of carelessness, or annoyance, clouded your judgment, and that was not a good thing in the woods. #Quote by Don Berry
Rare Things quotes by Susan Hill
#63. Sometimes a book has its day and, although of course it does not change, the reader does, as a result of having read better things, or new tastes having come to the fore, or fashions in literature having moved on. Other novels seem to have improved, usually because we have matured as readers, our imaginations have expanded and we understand new literary approaches, sometimes because of life events which have opened us up to a new emotional awareness and understanding. #Quote by Susan Hill
Rare Things quotes by Robert Reed
#64. Things that are impossible usually take time. #Quote by Robert Reed
