Shostakovich String quotes by Khayri R.R. Woulfe
#1. Perfection itself is a flaw, an odd knot in the cosmic fabric of evenly-braided imperfections. #Quote by Khayri R.R. Woulfe
Shostakovich String quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#2. Some rabbis say that, at birth, we are each tied to God with a string, and that every time we sin, the string breaks. To those who repent of their sins, especially in the days of Rosh Hashanah, God sends the angel Gabriel to make knots in the string, so that the humble and contrite are once again tied to God. Because each one of us fails, because we all lose our way on the path to righteousness from time to time, our strings are full of knots. But, the rabbis like to say, a string with many knots is shorter than one without knots. So the person with many sins but a humble heart is closer to God. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Shostakovich String quotes by Anne Perry
#3. Here in England there's a glass wall between you and the taste of reality. I don't want to see the last true passion tamed by railways, and men with Bibles telling everyone to cover their bodies." He spread his powerful, elegant hands. "Play your string quintets, by all means, Mr. Narraway, but don't silence the drums simply because you don't understand them. The men who play violins have steel and gunpowder, and the men who play drums don't. #Quote by Anne Perry
Shostakovich String quotes by Charlie Day
#4. I think people are surprised when I string two sentences together. But I had a fiercely academic upbringing. #Quote by Charlie Day
Shostakovich String quotes by Lily King
#5. Come down here so I can kill you, the man said to the moon, for you have stolen my wife. The moon laughed. Every woman is my wife first, he said. So in fact you stole this wife from me. This only made the man angrier and he climbed the tree to the highest branch and pulled at the raffia string. It would not move so he began to climb the string toward the moon. Soon his arms grew heavy and though he had climbed far from the tree he still was no closer to the moon. Let go now, the moon said. And the man, who had no more strength left, let go and fell directly into his canoe and paddled home to share his wife, as all men did, with the moon. #Quote by Lily King
Shostakovich String quotes by Al Gore
#6. Two thousand scientists in a hundred countries, engaged in the most elaborate, well-organized scientific collaboration in the history of humankind, have long since produced a consensus that we will face a string of terrible catastrophes unless we act to prepare ourselves and deal with the underlying causes of global warming. #Quote by Al Gore
Shostakovich String quotes by Michio Kaku
#7. What I do for living, working on something called string theory which we think may answer the fundamental question: Are there other universes? Can you go through a black hole? Can you warp the fabric of space and time and meet your mother before you were born? These are all questions that in principle string theory should be able to answer. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Shostakovich String quotes by John Sandford
#8. Cinnamon Girl" wasn't right for this day, for this time, for what was about to happen. If he were to have music, he thought, maybe Shostakovich, a few measures from the Lyric Waltz in Jazz Suite Number 2. Something sweet, yet pensive, with a taste of tragedy; Qatar was an intellectual, and he knew his music. #Quote by John Sandford
Shostakovich String quotes by Debasish Mridha
#9. Inspiration is an inner string which must be tuned often in order to play it. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Shostakovich String quotes by Giou Yomi
#10. The pain and the sadness that you encounter when you lose something important is only a mix of one emotion: guilt. When you feel it once, you learn from it. When you live it twice, you mourn in silence. But if you experience it thrice, you will break, shattering like a frail piece of glass. But if you manage to survive, then you will only be a shadow of your soul: a broken doll. Because we are nothing more than mere puppets of Destiny, holding tightly on the string that keeps us from being consumed by the darkness. The string that will eventually lead humankind to its pinnacle.
A simple red string named Hope. #Quote by Giou Yomi
Shostakovich String quotes by Margery Williams Bianco
#11. Between them all the poor little Rabbit was made to feel himself very insignificant and commonplace, and the only person who was kind to him at all was the Skin Horse.

The Skin Horse had lived longer in the nursery than any of the others. He was so old that his brown coat was bald in patches and showed the seams underneath, and most of the hairs in his tail had been pulled out to string bead necklaces. He was wise, for he had seen a long succession of mechanical toys arrive to boast and swagger, and by-and-by break their mainsprings and pass away, and he knew that they were only toys, and would never turn into anything else. For nursery magic is very strange and wonderful, and only those playthings that are old and wise and experienced like the Skin Horse understand all about it.

"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

Shostakovich String quotes by Rick Riordan
#12. As for Sadie, she didn't appear interested in strategy. She leaped from puddle to puddle in her combat boots. She hummed to herself, twirled like a little kid and occasionally pulled random things out of her backpack: wax animal figurines, some string, a piece of chalk, a bright yellow bag of candy.

She reminded me of someone …

Then it occurred to me. She looked like a younger version of Annabeth, but her fidgeting and hyperness reminded me of … well, me. If Annabeth and I ever had a daughter, she might be a lot like Sadie.


It's not like I'd never dreamed about kids before. I mean, you date someone for over a year, the idea is going to be in the back of your mind somewhere, right? But still – I'm barely seventeen. I'm not ready to think too seriously about stuff like that. Also, I'm a demigod. On a day-to-day basis, I'm busy just trying to stay alive.

Yet, looking at Sadie, I could imagine that someday maybe I'd have a little girl who looked like Annabeth and acted like me – a cute little hellion of a demigod, stomping through puddles and flattening monsters with magic camels. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Shostakovich String quotes by Alice Warrender
#13. A book about courage-a long string of tiny courageous steps. It is also about hope and faith and love. It is modest, careful and joyous. I do not see how any attentive reader could fail to be touched, awed and encouraged." Sara Maitland, Author #Quote by Alice Warrender
Shostakovich String quotes by Margaret Atwood
#14. If you want what's in the package you should at least know how to get the string off, is what I say. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Shostakovich String quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#15. Sometimes I muse about how wonderful it would be if I could string all my dreams together into one continuous life, a life consisting of entire days full of imaginary companions and created people. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Shostakovich String quotes by Thomas H. Cook
#16. It was at that moment that I'd first begun to experience one of life's deepest lessons: you are the most alive when you feel the most vulnerable, not when the arrow is still in the quiver but when it has been released by the string and is flying toward you. #Quote by Thomas H. Cook
Shostakovich String quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#17. I had lines inside me, a string of guiding lights. I had language. Fiction and poetry are doses, medicines. What they heal is the rupture reality makes on the imagination. I had been damaged, and a very important part of me had been destroyed - that was my reality, the facts of my life. But on the other side of the facts was who I could be, how I could feel. And as long as I had words for that, images for that, stories for that, then I wasn't lost. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Shostakovich String quotes by Sylvia Plath
#18. But when I took up my pen, my hand made big, jerky letters like those of a child, and the lines sloped down the page from left to right horizontally, as if they were loops of string lying on the paper, and someone had come along and blown them askew. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Shostakovich String quotes by Stephen Lloyd Jones
#19. It felt as if his body poured into a memory of itself, a recognized groove. #Quote by Stephen Lloyd Jones
Shostakovich String quotes by Sarah Zettel
#20. As far as the writing goes, I started telling stories as soon as I could talk, and started writing them down as soon as I could string words together. #Quote by Sarah Zettel
Shostakovich String quotes by John Green
#21. Dr. Singh told me once that if you have a perfectly tuned guitar and a perfectly tuned violin in the same room, and you pluck the D string of a guitar, then all the way across the room, the D string on the guitar will also vibrate. I could always feel my mother's vibrating strings. #Quote by John Green
Shostakovich String quotes by Leigh Newman
#22. I was an only child. And it's very much my temperament. I remember playing with a piece of string in my room for hours. I had never thought about what it would be like to have siblings. #Quote by Leigh Newman
Shostakovich String quotes by J.J. Ferrer

Shostakovich String quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#24. When anesthesia was developed, it was for many decades routinely withheld from women giving birth, since women were "supposed" to suffer. One of the few societies to take a contrary view was the Huichol tribe in Mexico. The Huichol believed that the pain of childbirth should be shared, so the mother would hold on to a string tied to her husband's testicles. With each painful contraction, she would give the string a yank so that the man could share the burden. Surely if such a mechanism were more widespread, injuries in childbirth would garner more attention. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Shostakovich String quotes by Christopher K. Germer
#25. A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life. #Quote by Christopher K. Germer
Shostakovich String quotes by Terry Pratchett
#26. Knowledge equals power ...
The string was important. After a while the Librarian stopped. He concentrated all his powers of librarianship.
Power equals energy ...
People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.
Energy equals matter ...
He swung into an avenue of shelving that was apparently a few feet long and walked along it briskly for half an hour.
Matter equals mass.
And mass distorts space. It distorts it into polyfractal L-space.
So, while the Dewey system has its fine points, when you're setting out to look something up in the multidimensional folds of L-space what you really need is a ball of string. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Shostakovich String quotes by Jules Shear
#27. The bottom string is tuned to an open G. #Quote by Jules Shear
Shostakovich String quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#28. From within he produced a crumpled piece of paper, and old-fashioned brass key, a peg of wood with a ball of string attached to it, and three rusty old disks of metal. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Shostakovich String quotes by Shulamith Firestone
#29. The patriarchal family was only the most recent in a string of 'primary' social organizations, all of which defined woman as a different species due to her unique childbearing capacity. The term family was first used by the Romans to denote a social unit the head of which ruled over wife, children, and slaves - under Roman law he was invested with the rights of life and death over them all; famulus means domestic slave, and familia is the total number of slaves belonging to one man. #Quote by Shulamith Firestone
Shostakovich String quotes by Daniel Clowes
#30. Bring me your Nortons, your Kramdens, your housewives, and sewermen.
Weight my limbs with the nests of your flotsam, that we may chirp in chorus this melancholy anthem.
Mourn with your busdriver piety this sapless husk;
dull with your tender hymn the string of the lumberman's axe. #Quote by Daniel Clowes
Shostakovich String quotes by Guy Clark
#31. All gut strings. That's just the first kind of guitar I played, it was a nylon string guitar. And to me, it's the purest form of guitar making, and I just enjoy doing it. #Quote by Guy Clark
Shostakovich String quotes by Roy H. Williams
#32. In essence, String Theory describes space and time, matter and energy, gravity and light, indeed all of God's creation ... as music. #Quote by Roy H. Williams
Shostakovich String quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#33. As for the bracelet Mom wore to the funeral, what I did was I converted Dad's last voice message into Morse code, and I used sky-blue beads for silence, maroon beads for breaks between letters, violet beads for breaks between words, and long and short pieces of string between the beads for long and short beeps, which are actually called blips, I think, or something. Dad would have known. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
