Single Sentence quotes by Terry Pratchett
#1. If words had weight, a single sentence from Death would have anchored a ship. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Single Sentence quotes by Jonas Jonasson
#2. Allan realised it was only a matter of time before he and Herbert were stopped along the road and checked out properly. Not even a marshal would be allowed just to roll into the capital of a country at war without somebody at least asking a question or two. So Allan spent a couple of hours instructing Herbert as to what he should say – just one sentence in Russian, but a very important one: 'I am Marshal Meretskov from the Soviet Union – take me to your leader!'
Pyongyang was protected at this time by an outer and an inner military ring. The outer one, twenty kilometres from the city, consisted of anti-aircraft guns and double checkpoints on roads, while the inner ring was virtually a barricade, a front line for defence against land attack. Allan and Herbert got caught in one of the outer checkpoints first and were met by a very drunk North Korean soldier, with a cocked machine gun across his chest. Marshal Herbert had rehearsed his single sentence endlessly, and now he said:
'I am your leader, take me to… the Soviet Union. #Quote by Jonas Jonasson
Single Sentence quotes by Louis De Wohl
#3. Gregor flushed as he went on: "The entire content of the Confesions could be put into one single sentence in the book: when Augustine addresses God, saying: 'Thou hast made us for Thyself and our heart is unquiet until it rests in Thee.' This sentence, my lords and friends, is immortal. It contains the very heart of religion. #Quote by Louis De Wohl
Single Sentence quotes by Friedrich Engels
#4. In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. #Quote by Friedrich Engels
Single Sentence quotes by Jesse Andrews
#5. I'm not really putting this very well. My point is this: This book contains precisely zero Important Life Lessons, or Little-Known Facts About Love, or sappy tear-jerking Moments When We Knew We Had Left Our Childhood Behind for Good, or whatever. And, unlike most books in which a girl gets cancer, there are definitely no sugary paradoxical single-sentence-paragraphs that you're supposed to think are deep because they're in italics. Do you know what I'm talking about? I'm talking about sentences like this:
The cancer had taken her eyeballs, yet she saw the world with more clarity than ever before.
Barf. Forget it. For me personally, things are in no way more meaningful because I got to know Rachel before she died. If anything, things are less meaningful. All right? #Quote by Jesse Andrews
Single Sentence quotes by Louis Agassiz
#6. I have devoted my whole life to the study of Nature, and yet a single sentence may express all that I have done. I have shown that there is a correspondence between the succession of Fishes in geological times and the different stages of their growth in the egg,-this is all. It chanced to be a result that was found to apply to other groups and has led to other conclusions of a like nature. #Quote by Louis Agassiz
Single Sentence quotes by Alejandro Jodorowsky
#7. During these past years, not being able to speak with you, I dedicated myself to reviewing, within myself, the sacred books I know by heart. I had the idea I should summarize them in a single volume. Then, in a single chapter, then in a single page, and finally in a single sentence. This sentence is the greatest thing I can teach you. It seems simple, but if you understand it, you will never have to study again." The Rabbi recited it. And life, from that moment on, changed for Alejandro. "If God is not here, He is nowhere; this instant itself is perfection. #Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Single Sentence quotes by John Tukey
#8. In a single sentence the moral is: admit that complexity always increases, first from the model you fit to the data, thence to the model you use to think about and plan about the experiment and its analysis, and thence to the true situation. #Quote by John Tukey
Single Sentence quotes by Joseph Joubert
#9. There are single thoughts that contain the essence of a whole volume, single sentences that have the beauties of a large work. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Single Sentence quotes by Alfa H
#10. Some poets write pages upon pages because their hearts have a song to sing and their melodies cannot be contained in a single stanza... and I find myself typing out a quote because my soul is still gasping for breath, and all the words form a single sentence: I miss us. #Quote by Alfa H
Single Sentence quotes by Bo Lozoff
#11. The cause of all our personal problems and nearly all the problems of the world can be summed up in a single sentence:
Human life is very deep, and our modern dominant lifestyle is not. #Quote by Bo Lozoff
Single Sentence quotes by Sarah Manguso
#12. Sometimes a single sentence can be enough to fill the imagination completely. And sometimes a book's title is enough. #Quote by Sarah Manguso
Single Sentence quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#13. If I had to define a major depression in a single sentence, I would describe it as a genetic/neurochemical disorder requiring a strong environmental trigger whose characteristic manifestation is an inability to appreciate sunsets. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Single Sentence quotes by Chris Matakas
#14. Words make the intangible aspects of human experience communicable, and a single sentence can shatter our world view and assist us in the formulation of a new one. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Single Sentence quotes by Mary J. Miller
#15. It's also obsessiveness. I'll spend a lot of time working on a single sentence, debating over a dash or a colon, etc. I want things to be perfect. I know nothing will ever be as perfect as I want it, and this is very sad, but sometimes I can get close. #Quote by Mary J. Miller
Single Sentence quotes by Tom Stoppard
#16. He could not put down a word without suspecting that it might be the wrong one and that if he held back for another day the intermediate experience would provide the right one. There was no end to that, and Moon fearfully glimpsed himself as a pure writer who after a lifetime of absolutely no output whatsoever, would prepare on his deathbed the single sentence which was the distillation of everything he had saved up, and die before he was able to utter it. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Single Sentence quotes by Horace Mann
#17. Resolve to edge in a little reading every day, if it is but a single sentence. If you gain fifteen minutes a day, it will make itself felt at the end of the year. #Quote by Horace Mann
Single Sentence quotes by Silas House
#18. I always tell my writing students that every good piece of writing begins with both a mystery and a love story. And that every single sentence must be a poem. And that economy is the key to all good writing. And that every character has to have a secret. #Quote by Silas House
Single Sentence quotes by Neale Osborne
#19. One single sentence, one frame of film, and abracadabra! the story's wings would take her to another lost world, another magic realm that was ready to be explored. #Quote by Neale Osborne
Single Sentence quotes by Irvine Welsh
#20. Iggy Pop looks right at me as he sings the line: 'America takes drugs in psychic defence'; only he changes 'America' to 'Scatlin', and defines us mair accurately in a single sentence than all the others have ever done. #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Single Sentence quotes by Kyung-Sook Shin
#21. What kind of writer are you?" You can't think of a single sentence that would satisfy Hyong-chol. Your #Quote by Kyung-Sook Shin
Single Sentence quotes by David Carr
#22. Most stories about one's past could fairly and adequately be told in a single sentence, and a short one at that: Everyone did the best they could. #Quote by David Carr
Single Sentence quotes by Gregory B. Sadler
#23. If the attitude of many non-Catholic modern philosophers toward Catholic thought could be summarized in a single sentence, it would be: It has been tried, it has produced its definitive results, which have been found lacking, and now its time is past #Quote by Gregory B. Sadler
Single Sentence quotes by Scott Matthews
#24. 74. In 1944 a 16-year-old black student in Columbus, Ohio won an essay contest on the theme 'what to do with Hitler after the war' by submitting a single sentence. "Put him in black skin and let him live the rest of his life in America. #Quote by Scott Matthews
Single Sentence quotes by Albert Camus
#25. A single sentence will suffice for modern man. He fornicated and read the papers. After that vigorous definition, the subject will be, if I may say so, exhausted. #Quote by Albert Camus
Single Sentence quotes by Samuel Beckett
#26. I always thought old age would be a writer's best chance. Whenever I read the late work of Goethe or W. B. Yeats I had the impertinence to identify with it. Now, my memory's gone, all the old fluency's disappeared. I don't write a single sentence without saying to myself, 'It's a lie!' So I know I was right. It's the best chance I've ever had. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Single Sentence quotes by Sam Harris
#27. If you think that it would be impossible to improve upon the Ten Commandments as a statement of morality, you really owe it to yourself to read some other scriptures. Once again, we need look no further than the Jains: Mahavira, the Jain patriarch, surpassed the morality of the Bible with a single sentence: 'Do not injure, abuse, oppress, enslave, insult, torment, torture, or kill any creature or living being.' Imagine how different our world might be if the Bible contained this as its central precept. Christians have abused, oppressed, enslaved, insulted, tormented, tortured, and killed people in the name of God for centuries, on the basis of a theologically defensible reading of the Bible. #Quote by Sam Harris
Single Sentence quotes by Joseph Joubert
#28. A few words worthy to be remembered suffice to give an idea of a great mind. There are single thoughts that contain the essence of a whole volume, single sentences that have the beauties of a large work, a simplicity so finished and so perfect that it equals in merit and in excellence a large and glorious composition. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Single Sentence quotes by Christopher T. Garry
#29. Write down what your reader needs, no more, no less. Reading should be textured, but not obscure. Henry James could make an entire paragraph out of a single sentence. The reader is completely sensory deprived of the story until the words show the way. If a reader were practiced, then James' prose could be followed and appreciated for its economy and elegance. #Quote by Christopher T. Garry
Single Sentence quotes by Marisa De Los Santos
#30. I was there to get a Ph.D. in English literature. That's not true. I was there to read a lot of books and to discuss them with bright, insightful, book-loving people, an expectation that I pretty quickly learned was about as silly as it could be.
Certainly there were other people who loved books, I'm sure there were, but whoever had notified them ahead of time that loving books was not the point, was, in fact, a hopelessly counterproductive and naive approach to the study of literature, neglected to notify me. It turned out that the point was to dissect a book like a fetal pig in biology class or to break its back with a single sentence or to bust it open like a milkweek pod and say, "See? All along it was only fluff," and then scatter it into oblivion with one tiny breath. #Quote by Marisa De Los Santos
Single Sentence quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#31. The revolution in cancer research can be summed up in a single sentence: cancer is, in essence, a genetic disease. - Bert Vogelstein #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Single Sentence quotes by Confucius
#32. In the Book of Poetry there are three hundred poems, but the meaning of all of them may be put in a single sentence: Have no debasing thoughts. #Quote by Confucius
Single Sentence quotes by Linda Flower
#33. Trying to compose even a single sentence can have the same effect, as we try to juggle grammatical and syntactical alternatives plus all the possibilities of tone, nuance, and rhythm even a simple sentence offers. Composing, then, is a cognitive activity that
constantly threatens to overload short-term memory. #Quote by Linda Flower
Single Sentence quotes by Martin Heidegger
#34. What was Aristotle's life?' Well, the answer lay in a single sentence: 'He was born, he thought, he died.' And all the rest is pure anecdote. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Single Sentence quotes by Mark Twain
#35. To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself ... Anybody can have ideas
the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph. #Quote by Mark Twain
Single Sentence quotes by E. M. Forster
#36. In the light of her son's comment she reconsidered the scene at the mosque, to see whose impression was correct. Yes it could be worked into quite an unpleasant scene. The doctor had begun by bullying her, had said Mrs Callendar was nice, and then - finding the ground safe - had changed; he had alternately whined over his grievances and patronized her, had run a dozen ways in a single sentence, had been unreliable, inquisitive, vain. Yes, it was all true, but how false as a summary of the man; the essential life of him had been slain. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Single Sentence quotes by Robert Breault
#37. An aphorism is a single sentence that totally exhausts its subject. #Quote by Robert Breault
Single Sentence quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#38. If you can't do it, don't pledge to do it. Don't be a liar; say only what you can do. It's better for you to have a "single sentence" manifesto about your life which is fulfilled than to have 25 chapters' theories about your visions that remain undone! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Single Sentence quotes by Ralph Lombreglia
#39. Alethea Black can drop you into a dream with a single sentence, then convince you it's real. Her characters' best hopes and worst fears usually come to pass, often in fabulous ways, but their adventures feel inevitable and true-not only because Ms. Black richly imagines her people, but because she loves them. I Knew You'd Be Lovely is a lovely debut, with masterful prose and inspired invention on every page. #Quote by Ralph Lombreglia
Single Sentence quotes by Robert South
#40. The seven wise men of Greece, so famous for their wisdom all the world over, acquired all that fame, each of them, by a single sentence consisting of two or three words. #Quote by Robert South
Single Sentence quotes by Carlos Salinas
#41. 'They fell in love.' Such a rare and special event cannot be done justice by one statement; it involves so much more than that single sentence could explain: it means two people that were brave enough to show their scars, vulnerability, rough edges, happiest thoughts, along with their worst fears, and find a mutual respect, appreciation, and fondness for one another; they achieved a gift that not many people get to experience in their lifetime in its truest form. #Quote by Carlos Salinas
Single Sentence quotes by Malik Bendjelloul
#42. The perfect story is one you can retell in three minutes, and every single sentence is interesting. #Quote by Malik Bendjelloul
Single Sentence quotes by Jordan B. Peterson
#43. In the Christian tradition, Christ is identified with the Logos. The Logos is the Word of God. That word transformed chaos into order at the beginning of time. In his human form, Christ sacrificed himself voluntarily to the truth, to the good, to God. In consequence, He died and was reborn. The Word that produced order from Chaos sacrifices everything, even itself, to God. That single sentence, beyond comprehension, sums up Christianity, Every bit of learning is a little death. #Quote by Jordan B. Peterson
Single Sentence quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#44. The whole gospel of Karl Marx can be summed up in a single sentence: Hate the man who is better off than you are. Never under any circumstances admit that his success may be due to his own efforts, to the productive contribution he has made to the whole community. Always attribute his success to the exploitation, the cheating, the more or less open robbery of others. Never under any circumstances admit that your own failure may be owing to your own weakness, or that the failure of anyone else may be due to his own defects - his laziness, incompetence, improvidence, or stupidity. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Single Sentence quotes by Jeffrey L. Staley
#45. But you can't fault me on my footnotes. I've worked hard on them and they look pretty impressive. And almost all the sources I quote actually exist. I must confess, however, that the idea of putting footnotes in chapter 5, the autobiographical chapter, started out simply as a joke. Who but a biblical scholar would think of footnoting an autobiography? But the joke quickly got out of hand and become a significant part of that chapter. I plan someday to write a scholarly article consisting of a single sentence and a twenty-page footnote. #Quote by Jeffrey L. Staley
Single Sentence quotes by John Steinbeck
#46. I don't think there is a single sentence in this whole book [East of Eden] that does not either develop character, carry on the story or provide necessary background. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Single Sentence quotes by Lindsey Pollak
#47. When I asked for her best motivational tip, she shared a single sentence she uses with her employees. Whenever she assigns a project, she says, "Make it as awesome as you want. #Quote by Lindsey Pollak
Single Sentence quotes by Jerry Pinto
#48. We began our hospital visits: one day Susan, one day me, everyday The Big Hoom. On one of these visits, she told me about the tap that opened at my birth and the lack drip filling her up, and it tore a hole in my heart. If this was what she could manage with a single sentence, what did thirsty years of marriage do to The Big Hoom? #Quote by Jerry Pinto
Single Sentence quotes by Victoria Schwab
#49. It was a stick-figure drawing. Two people holding hands. A thin man in black and a girl, half his height with short hair, and wide eyes. The stick-girl's head was cocked slightly, and a small red spot marked her arm. Three similar spots, no bigger than periods, dotted the stick-man's chest. The stick-man's mouth was nothing more than a faint grim line.

Beneath the drawing ran a single sentence: I made a friend. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Single Sentence quotes by Penelope Lively
#50. We open our mouths and out flow words whose ancestries we do not even know. We are walking lexicons. In a single sentence of idle chatter we preserve Latin, Anglo-Saxon, Norse; we carry a museum inside our heads, each day we commemorate peoples of whom we have never heard. More than that, we speak volumes – our language is the language of everything we have read. Shakespeare and the Authorised Version surface in supermarkets, on buses, chatter on radio and television. I find this miraculous. I never cease to wonder at it. That words are more durable than anything, that they blow with the wind, hibernate and reawaken, shelter parasitic on the most unlikely hosts, survive and survive and survive. #Quote by Penelope Lively
Single Sentence quotes by Heather Demetrios
#51. Maybe the only way you really know you love someone is it they can break you with a single sentence. #Quote by Heather Demetrios
Single Sentence quotes by Brenda Ueland
#52. I found that many gifted people are so afraid of writing a poor story that they cannot summon the nerve to write a single sentence for months. The thing to say to such people is: "See how *bad* a story you can write. See how dull you can be. Go ahead. That would be fun and interesting. I will give you ten dollars if you can write something thoroughly dull from beginning to end!" And of course, no one can. #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Single Sentence quotes by George Halas
#53. You might reduce Lombardi's coaching philosophy to a single sentence: In any game, you do the things you do best and you do them over and over and over. #Quote by George Halas
Single Sentence quotes by Manasa Rao
#54. I don't understand how teens in this generation stress being in a relationship/love more than adults do about their future. She's testing him to see if he's loyal, he's testing her to see if she's after money. So, basically it's a messed up-stressed-testing generation. Love has been blown so far out of proportion I reckon. The stress surrounding the single sentence 'I love you' is saddening. Relax!!! You're young! Your teen years are supposed to be fun. You have your whole lives ahead to find the right one. Just sit back, chill and live life the way it comes. #Quote by Manasa Rao
Single Sentence quotes by Seth Grahame-Smith
#55. I hereby resolve to kill every vampire in America. #Quote by Seth Grahame-Smith
Single Sentence quotes by Martin Cruz Smith
#56. 'High Concept' means a book or a film whose core idea can be stated in a single sentence, such as 'Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are twins.' Or, 'Arnold is pregnant.' #Quote by Martin Cruz Smith
Single Sentence quotes by Matthew Healy
#57. I'm writing songs that connect to millions of people. And that happens for a reason. I don't really worry too much about people who aren't into it because that's the beauty of music. It's subjective. If every single person in the world loved our music, then that'd be weird. #Quote by Matthew Healy
Single Sentence quotes by Ron Paul
#58. No single person, including the President of the United States, should ever be given the power to make a medical decision for potentially millions of Americans. Freedom over one's physical person is the most basic freedom of all, and people in a free society should be sovereign over their own bodies. When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us, we in essence accept that the state owns our bodies. #Quote by Ron Paul
Single Sentence quotes by Mandy Hale
#59. When you live in the present, the past is forgotten & the future takes care of itself. #Quote by Mandy Hale
Single Sentence quotes by Meghan O'Rourke
#60. There is no single way of grieving. But research suggests that there are some broad similarities among grievers. #Quote by Meghan O'Rourke
Single Sentence quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#61. I, for example, quiet plainly and simply insist upon annihilation for myself. "No," they say, "you must go on living, for without you there would be nothing. If everything on earth were reasonable, nothing would ever happen. Without you there would be no events, and it is necessary that there should be events." Well, and so on I drudge with unwilling heart so that there be events, and bring about unreason by command. People think toute cette comedie is something serious, all there unquestionable intelligence notwithstanding. There lies there tragedy. Well, and they suffer, of course, but … al the same they live, they live in reality, not in fantasy; for suffering is also life. Without suffering what pleasure would there be in it? Everything would turn into one single, endless church service: much holy soaring, but rather boring. Well, and I? I suffer, but even so I do not live. I am the "x" in an indeterminate equation. I am one of life's ghosts, who has lost all the ends and the beginnings, and even at last forgotten what to call myself. You are laughing . . . No, you are not laughing, you are angry again. You are eternally angry, you would like there to be nothing but intelligence, but I will tell you again that I would renounce all this empyrean existence, all these honours and ranks just in order to be able to take fleshy form in the person of a seven-pood merchant's wife and set up candles to God in church.

'So, you don't believe in God either?' Ivan said, sm #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Single Sentence quotes by Nikki Godwin
#62. Eventually, the sun will rise, I'll have to bleed with my butterfly brothers, and the rest of the world will get to see my blue ink, not just you. But here's the thing," he says. "I may bleed every single day for the world, but I bleed the most for you. #Quote by Nikki Godwin
Single Sentence quotes by Carrie Brownstein
#63. At that age I thought apartments were built specifically to house the single or the newly single, a divorce dormitory of sorts. #Quote by Carrie Brownstein
Single Sentence quotes by Glen Duncan
#64. Naturally we looked at each other. Naturally the single second that passed was more than enough time to enjoy a purified intimacy, to note each other's details and feel the exact weight of each other's history. naturally our essences, peremptorily denuded, exchanged a stunned glance.
Then I shot him in the face. #Quote by Glen Duncan
Single Sentence quotes by Jodi Picoult
#65. When you get down to it, though, explaining what you believe isn't all that easy. If you say that you believe something to be true, you might mean one of two things - that you're still weighing the alternatives, or that you accept it as a fact. I don't logically see how one single word can have contradictory definitions, but emotionally, I completely understand. Because there are times I think what I am doing is right, and there are other times I second-guess myself every step of the way. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Single Sentence quotes by Trisha Goddard
#66. I can be horrifically single-minded. #Quote by Trisha Goddard
Single Sentence quotes by Nikki Gemmell
#67. There were the endless birthday nights and New Year's Eves of just you in your bed and no one else. There was the welling up at weddings, the glittery eye-prick, when all the couples would get up to dance. Sometimes it felt like your heart was crazed with cracks like your grandmother's old saucers. Sometimes the sight of a Saturday afternoon couple laughing in a park would splinter it completely. #Quote by Nikki Gemmell
Single Sentence quotes by Eoin Colfer
#68. Vern did not trust humans was the long and short of it. Not a single one. He had known many in his life, even liked a few, but in the end they all sold him out to the angry mob. Which was why he holed up in Honey Island Swamp out of harm's way.
Vern liked the swamp okay. As much as he liked anything after all these years. Goddamn, so many years just stretching out behind him like bricks in that road old King Darius put down back in who gives a shit BC. Funny how things came back out of the blue. Like that ancient Persian road. He couldn't remember last week, and now he was flashing back a couple thousand years, give or take. Vern had baked half those bricks his own self, back when he still did a little blue-collar. Nearly wore out the internal combustion engine. Shed his skin two seasons early because of that bitch of a job. That and diet. No one had a clue about nutrition in those days. Vern was mostly ketogenic now, high fat, low carbs, apart from his beloved breakfast cereals. Keto made perfect sense for a dragon, especially with his core temperature. Unfortunately, it meant that beer had to go, but he got by on vodka. Absolut was his preferred brand. A little high on alcohol but easiest on the system. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
Single Sentence quotes by Kelsea Ballerini
#69. I have a picture of me with Lady Antebellum, when they released their first single and I was at CMA Fest as a fan. I'm in flower-power shorts and a headband - so not cute - and I'm fan-girling next to Hillary. I couldn't believe I was standing next to her. #Quote by Kelsea Ballerini
Single Sentence quotes by Rihanna
#70. Single life is so overrated. #Quote by Rihanna
Single Sentence quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#71. All I have learned in the twenty years that I have been a monk I can sum up in one sentence: All that arises passes away. This I know. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Single Sentence quotes by Branford Marsalis
#72. There is not a sentence in the world that could respectfully do justice to the life and music of Jerry Garcia. #Quote by Branford Marsalis
Single Sentence quotes by Ava Gardner
#73. I caught his drift, but I wasn't going to argue for a single second. Just get me to the Hampshire House, that's all I cared about. Besides, how could I say, "No, I'm not a prositute. I'm Mrs. Frank Sinatra out for an early morning walk in the rain"? #Quote by Ava Gardner
Single Sentence quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#74. Let us not subside into a single mandatory way of thinking or feeling, immersed by a spirit of self-gratification. But let's dig into the fresh energy of new boundaries and at the same time pick the blossoms of poetry welling up along the path of our life, and enjoy the innocence of the little wonders of every day.
("A Thousand times touched." ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Single Sentence quotes by Cynthia Hand
#75. But then I think about what I've learned here in the last year, and I don't mean in my classes, but what I've learned from watching my friends face their futures and search for their purposes. I've learned that a storm isn't always just bad weather, and a fire can be the start of something new. I've found out that there are a lot more shades of gray in this world than I ever knew about. I've learned that sometimes, when you're afraid but you keep on moving forward, that's the biggest kind of courage there is. And finally, I've learned that life isn't really about failure and success. It's about being present, in the moment when big things happen, when everything changes, including yourself. So I would tell us, no matter how bright we think our futures are, it doesn't matter. Whether we go off to some fancy university or stay home and work. That doesn't define us. Our purpose on this earth is not a single event, an accomplishment we can check off a list. There is no test. No passing or failing. There's only us, each moment shaping who we are, into what we will become. So I say forget about the future. Pay attention to now. This moment right now. Let go of expectations. Just be. Then you are free to become something great. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Single Sentence quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#76. When your attention is diffuse, it's like a broad, weak beam of light that doesn't reveal much. Concentration brings the weak beam down to a single, sharply focused, supremely bright, exponentially more illuminating point. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Single Sentence quotes by Carol Storm
#77. Sebastian pulled her into his arms, and planted a kiss on her lips that made her toes curl. Heat and hunger combined with a teasing, caressing sense of mastery. This DeMarco had her number, all right. For all his fierce discipline, this was a man who took his time making love to a woman. He could make a single kiss last for hours. #Quote by Carol Storm
Single Sentence quotes by Meg Tilly
#78. I really enjoy acting. At home I can't even finish a sentence, and here I am reading these wonderful lines. I think it must be every housewife's dream, to be an actress part-time. #Quote by Meg Tilly
Single Sentence quotes by Georges Laraque
#79. I haven't played a single game all year. This is bullshit! #Quote by Georges Laraque
Single Sentence quotes by Emma Chase
#80. I stand outside Mr. Haverstrom's door, staring at the black letters of his name stenciled on the frosted glass, listening to the murmur of voices inside. It's not that Mr. Haverstrom is a mean boss - he's a bit like Mr. Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights. Even though he doesn't get much page time, his presence is strong and consequential.

I take a breath, straighten my spine, and knock on the door firmly and decisively - the way Elizabeth Bennet would. Because she didn't give a single shit about anything. Then Mr. Haverstrom opens the door, his eyes narrow, his hair and skin pale, his face lined and grouchy - like a squished marshmallow.

On the outside, I nod and breeze into the office, but inside, I cringe and wilt. #Quote by Emma Chase
Single Sentence quotes by Rosie Blythe
#81. Remember The Princess and the Pea? She could feel a single pea through dozens of mattresses, and that's how everyone knew she was of noble blood, even though she'd arrived looking bedraggled and scruffy.
It's supposed to be an example of the saying "breeding will out", meaning that you can always spot true royalty, even if that someone is dressed in rags. Am I the only one who thinks the moral of this story is all screwed up? You get caught in a storm and knock on a stranger's door in the middle of the night to ask for shelter... then when they ask how you slept, you COMPLAIN that you were uncomfortable?
Honey, that's not being a Princess. That's being a diva bitch. #Quote by Rosie Blythe
Single Sentence quotes by Lisa N. Paul
#82. Catey, happiness doesn't just happen to us, especially when we've been living without it for so long. Happiness is a choice we make every single day. We wake up and decide that no matter what happens we will find a way to obtain the very thing our heart needs to flourish. #Quote by Lisa N. Paul
Single Sentence quotes by Marcel Proust
#83. Life is extraordinarily suave and sweet with certain natural, witty, affectionate people who have unusual distinction and are capable of every vice, but who make a display of none in public and about whom no one can affirm they have a single one. There is something supple and secret about them. Besides, their perversity gives spice to their most innocent occupations, such as taking a walk in the garden at night. #Quote by Marcel Proust

Single Sentence quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#85. It took me a moment. I blinked, and suddenly it swam into focus and I had to frown very hard to keep myself from giggling out loud like the schoolgirl Deb had accused me of being.

That's nearly 25 percent less. For single mothers, the situation is even worse. One third of them are living in poverty or just on the edge of poverty. This is an unacceptable situation. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
