Smallest Continent quotes by Colum McCann
#1. He was not beyond knowing that they thought him - when he first arrived - a quiet patsy. The Arab. The Yank. The Judge. Your Harness. Mohammed. Mahatma. Ahab. Iron Pants. He wasn't interested in playing himself Irish or Lebanese. Not for him the simple ancestral heart: he wanted to make himself the smallest continent possible. #Quote by Colum McCann
Smallest Continent quotes by Lydia Davis
#2. There was no confusion of our bodies. I knew which arm was his and which mine, and which leg, and which shoulder. I did not lose track and kiss my own arm, or whatever came near my mouth. THe smallest motion did not immediately lead to another motion. It was not endless, I did not go more and more deeply into my body and his body as though to go as far as possible from my mind, and his mind, so conscious, so unrelenting. It did not end while it was still in the middle. #Quote by Lydia Davis
Smallest Continent quotes by P.D. Ouspensky
#3. Everything 'happens'. People can 'do' nothing. From the time we are born to the time we die things happen, happen, happen, and we think we are doing. This is our normal state in life, and even the smallest possibility to do something comes only through the work, and first only in oneself, not externally. #Quote by P.D. Ouspensky
Smallest Continent quotes by Banani Ray
#4. Life is a hologram. Even the smallest moment contains eternity within it. #Quote by Banani Ray
Smallest Continent quotes by Stephen King
#5. The workman cut to the left, still laying on his horn, and roared around the drunkenly weaving limousine. He invited the driver of the limo to perform an illegal sex act on himself. To engage in oral congress with various rodents and birds. He articulated his own proposal that all persons of Negro blood return to their native continent. He expressed his sincere belief in the position the limo driver's soul would occupy in the afterlife. He finished by saying that he believed he had met the limodriver's mother in a New Orleans house of prostitution. #Quote by Stephen King
Smallest Continent quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#6. If there ever was a pursuit which stultified itself by its very conditions, it is the pursuit of pleasure as the all-sufficing end of life. Happiness cannot come to any man capable of enjoying true happiness unless it comes as the sequel to duty well and honestly done. To do that duty you need to have more than one trait. From the greatest to the smallest, happiness and usefulness are largely found in the same soul, and the joy of life is won in its deepest and truest sense only by those who have not shirked life's burdens. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Smallest Continent quotes by Vivake Pathak
#7. Universe is the smallest clock. #Quote by Vivake Pathak
Smallest Continent quotes by Bill Bryson
#8. Distance changes utterly when you take the world on foot. A mile becomes a long way, two miles literally considerable, ten miles whopping, fifty miles at the very limits of conception. The world, you realize, is enormous in a way that only you and a small community of fellow hikers know. Planetary scale is your little secret.

Life takes on a neat simplicity, too. Time ceases to have any meaning. When it is dark, you go to bed, and when it is light again you get up, and everything in between is just in between. It's quite wonderful, really.

You have no engagements, commitments, obligations, or duties; no special ambitions and only the smallest, least complicated of wants; you exist in a tranquil tedium, serenely beyond the reach of exasperation, "far removed from the seats of strife," as the early explorer and botanist William Bartram put it. All that is required of you is a willingness to trudge.

There is no point in hurrying because you are not actually going anywhere. However far or long you plod, you are always in the same place: in the woods. It's where you were yesterday, where you will be tomorrow. The woods is one boundless singularity. Every bend in the path presents a prospect indistinguishable from every other, every glimpse into the trees the same tangled mass. For all you know, your route could describe a very large, pointless circle. In a way, it would hardly matter.

At times, you become almost certain that you slabbed #Quote by Bill Bryson
Smallest Continent quotes by Ree Drummond
#9. My phone rang at midnight, just as I was clearing my bed of the scissors and magazines and glue. It was Marlboro Man, who'd just returned to his home after processing 250 head of cattle in the dark of night. He just wanted to say good night. I would forever love that about him.
"What've you been doing tonight?" he asked. His voice was scratchy. He sounded spent.
"Oh, I just finished up my homework assignment," I answered, rubbing my eyes and glancing at the collage on my bed.
"Oh…good job," he said. "I've got to go get some sleep so I can get over there and get after it in the morning…" His voice drifted off. Poor Marlboro Man--I felt so sorry for him. He had cows on one side, Father Johnson on the other, a wedding in less than a week, and a three-week vacation in another continent. The last thing he needed to do was flip through old issues of Seventeen magazine for pictures of lip gloss and Sun-In. The last thing he needed to deal with was Elmer's glue.
My mind raced, and my heart spoke up. "Hey, listen…," I said, suddenly thinking of a brilliant idea. "I have an idea. Just sleep in tomorrow morning--you're so tired…"
"Nah, that's okay," he said. "I need to do the--"
"I'll do your collage for you!" I interrupted. It seemed like the perfect solution.
Marlboro Man chuckled. "Ha--no way. I do my own homework around here."
"No, seriously!" I insisted. "I'll do it--I have all the stuff here and I'm totally in the zone right now. I can whip #Quote by Ree Drummond
Smallest Continent quotes by Eric Partridge
#10. In short, every adventure of the mind is an adventure vehicled by words. Every adventure of the mind is an adventure with words; every such adventure is an adventure among words; and occasionally an adventure is an adventure of words. It is no exaggeration to say that, in every word of every language - every single word or phrase of every language, however primitive or rudimentary or frag­mentarily recorded, and whether living or dead- we discover an enlightening, sometimes a rather frightening, vignette of history; with such a term as water we find that we require a volume rather than a vignette. Sometimes the history concerned may seem to affect only an individual. But, as John Donne remarked in 1624, 'No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;… any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.' History is not merely individual, it is collective or social; not only national, but international; not simply terrestrial, but universal. History being recorded in words and achieved partly, sometimes predominantly, by words, it follows that he who despises or belittles or does no worse than underestimate, the value and power, the ineluctable necessity of words, despises all history and therefore despises mankind (himself perhaps excluded). He who ignores the enduring power and the history of words ignores that sole part of himself whi #Quote by Eric Partridge
Smallest Continent quotes by Steve Gaynor
#11. When you're working on a game that has a budget of tens of millions of dollars and you have to sell millions and millions and millions of copies to break even, you have a lot more layers between you and the audience. You have a marketing department, and there's a different marketing department for every continent, and the parent company has stockholders, and all that kind of stuff. #Quote by Steve Gaynor
Smallest Continent quotes by Doug Peacock
#12. The whole concept of 'wild' was decidedly European, one not shared by the original inhabitants of this continent. What we called 'wilderness' was to the Indian a homeland, 'abiding loveliness' in Salish or Piegan. The land was not something to be feared or conquered, and 'wildlife' were neither wild nor alien; they were relatives. #Quote by Doug Peacock
Smallest Continent quotes by Jim Rohn
#13. There lies within each person a huge reservoir of untapped potential for achievement, success, happiness,
health and greater prosperity. It's like an ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities
waiting to be released and channelled toward some great good. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Smallest Continent quotes by Koichi Tanaka
#14. My grandmother valued even the smallest of things. #Quote by Koichi Tanaka
Smallest Continent quotes by Tim W. Burke
#15. Look at the worms, Eric. See how they glow with life? Like jewels! Aren't even the smallest lives beautiful? #Quote by Tim W. Burke
Smallest Continent quotes by Louise Penny
#16. They'd crossed over to that continent where grieving parents lived. It looked the same as the rest of the world, but wasn't. Colors bled pale. Music was just notes. Books no longer transported or comforted, not fully. Never again. Food was nutrition, little more. Breaths were sighs. And they knew something the rest didn't. They knew how lucky the rest of the world was. #Quote by Louise Penny
Smallest Continent quotes by Caitlin Moran
#17. All my life, I've thought that if I couldn't say anything boys found interesting, I might as well shut up. But now I realize there was that whole other, invisible half of the world - girls - that I could speak to instead. A whole other half equally silent and frustrated, just waiting to be given the smallest starting signal - the tiniest starter culture - and they would explode into words, and song, and action, and relieved, euphoric cries of "Me too! I feel this too! #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Smallest Continent quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#18. Each evening, I ached for the shelter of my tent, for the smallest sense that something was shielding me from the entire rest of the world, keeping me safe not from danger, but from vastness itself. I loved the dim, clammy dark of my tent, the cozy familiarity of the way I arranged my few belongings all around me each night. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Smallest Continent quotes by Anton Chekhov
#19. I believe that nothing passes without a trace and that each of our smallest steps has significance for the present and the future. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Smallest Continent quotes by Mark Manson
#20. The smallest dog barks the loudest #Quote by Mark Manson
Smallest Continent quotes by Karen Traviss
#21. If we were given one word of information in our entire history, how we'd treasure it! how we'd pore over ever syllable, divining it's meaning, arguing its importance; how we'd examine it and wring every lesson we could from it. Yet today we have trillions of words, tidal waves of information and the smallest detail of every action our government and businesses take is easily available to us at the touch of a button. And yet ... we ignore it, and learn nothing from it. One day we'll die of voluntary ignorance #Quote by Karen Traviss
Smallest Continent quotes by Craig Raine
#22. What the poet does is as ordinary and mysterious as digesting. I question. I break life down. I impose chaos on order. For instance, we think we know how food is ingested, digested, divided into energy and excrement. The neat theory, however, is one thing; control of the process is another; consciousness of the process yet another. Are we aware of protein in the stomach being acted on by pepsin, the appropriate enzyme? Digestion, thinking and breathing are all functions we perform without knowing how we perform them. The body is a dark continent. The mind is another. So I can say very little about what I do. I accept nothing as read. I attack the pretence that we know how things work, whether they happen to be the action of saliva or sexual love from adolescence to old age. #Quote by Craig Raine
Smallest Continent quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#23. The researchers looked at about 700,000 trees on every continent around the world. The surprising result: the older the tree, the more quickly it grows. #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Smallest Continent quotes by Sean Williams
#24. Metaphorically speaking," she said with a smile, "'if' is the smallest word in the Galactic Standard lexicon, yet it stands between us and our greatest dreams. Let it be a bridge, Shigar. It's time you crossed it. I will be waiting for you on the other side. #Quote by Sean Williams
Smallest Continent quotes by David Frum
#25. Power creates temptations, and that is true even for the smallest increments of power: the power of the building inspector, of the customs official, of the cop at the traffic stop. It took a lot of work by a lot of people over a long time to build even America's highly imperfect standards of public integrity. Undoing that work would be a far easier task. Corruption is the resting state of pubic affairs; integrity a painstaking, unceasing struggle against cultural inertia and political gravity. #Quote by David Frum
Smallest Continent quotes by Terrence McKenna
#26. Through psychedelics we are learning that God is not an idea, God is a lost continent in the human mind. That continent has been rediscovered in a time of great peril for ourselves and our world. Is this coincidence, synchronicity, or a cruelly meaningless juxtaposition of hope and ruin? #Quote by Terrence McKenna
Smallest Continent quotes by Philip Yancey
#27. Faith is not simply a private matter, or something we practice once a week at church. Rather, it should have a contagious effect on the broader world. Jesus used these images to illustrate His kingdom.: a sprinkle of yeast causing the whole loaf to rise, a pinch of salt preserving a slab of meat, the smallest seed in the garden growing into a great tree in which birds of the air come to nest. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Smallest Continent quotes by George Catlin
#28. If my life be spared, nothing shall stop me short of visiting every nation of Indians on the Continent of North America. #Quote by George Catlin
Smallest Continent quotes by Amit Ray
#29. God is visible in the smallest details of the creatures. She is visible in the darkest space of human heart. She is visible in the grandest art of cosmic space. God is everywhere. Witness the presence of God within every thing and every being. #Quote by Amit Ray
Smallest Continent quotes by Winston Churchill
#30. He has the gift of compressing the largest amount of words into the smallest amount of thoughts. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Smallest Continent quotes by Francis Ray
#31. Payton "Sin" Sinclair was an unapologetic people-watcher. As a sports consultant, working with some of the biggest and most recognizable athletes in sports and business, he had to be able to read the smallest nuances of others. That ability was just one of the unique attributes that set him apart from the competition and made him the go-to person when corporations wanted to align themselves with the top professional athletes in the country. #Quote by Francis Ray
Smallest Continent quotes by Chang-rae Lee
#32. All around B-Mor it's much the same, which is happy enough. But maybe it's the laboring that gives you shape. Might the most fulfilling times be those spent solo at your tasks, literally immersed or not, when you are able to uncover the smallest surprises and unlikely details of some process or operation that in turn exposes your proclivities and prejudices both? And whether or not there is anything to be done about it, you begin to learn what you value most. #Quote by Chang-rae Lee
Smallest Continent quotes by Betsy Cornwell
#33. A whole life could change, and change again, in the smallest fraction of forever. #Quote by Betsy Cornwell
Smallest Continent quotes by Haruki Murakami
#34. Even chance meetings are the result of karma ... Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there's no such thing as coincidence. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Smallest Continent quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#35. But what has happened during the last year and a half has forced all reasonably farsighted men to understand that we are living in a new world. We have let our navy deteriorate to a degree both shameful and alarming. We have shown by our own conduct when the Hague Conventions were violated that all such treaties are utterly worthless, as offering even the smallest safeguard against aggression. Above all, the immense efficiency, the utter ruthlessness, and the gigantic scale of the present military operations show that we need military preparedness on a scale never hitherto #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Smallest Continent quotes by Carlos Saavedra Lamas
#36. America is the world of peace and must be made the continent of its definite consequence. #Quote by Carlos Saavedra Lamas
Smallest Continent quotes by Xinran
#37. (As a "grandchild of a capitalist household"
At school, I was forbidden to take singing and dancing lessons with the other girls because I was not to "pollute" the arena of the revolution. Even though I was short-sighted, I was not allowed to sit in the front row in class because the best places were reserved for the children born to peasants, workers or soldiers; they were deemed to have 'straight roots and red shoots'. Similarly, I was forbidden to stand in the front row during PE lessons, though I was the smallest in the class, because the place nearest the teacher were for the 'next generation of the revolution'. #Quote by Xinran
Smallest Continent quotes by Jerome Hart
#38. It is the fashion in many parts of the United States to sneer at Chicago. This is notably the case in San Francisco. Most San Franciscans say they dislike Chicago.It is true that there is much that is unlovely there. To the impatient traveler hastening from New York to San Francisco the enforced stop at Chicago is distasteful. For Chicago has contrived things with such skill that it is difficult to cross the continent without stopping within her gates. Everybody must pay toll. The pilgrim must pause, even thought he do not unpack his wallet. He must stop at least for a bath and a bite. You find it difficult to go around Chicago. Chicago will not let you pass her without stopping. #Quote by Jerome Hart
Smallest Continent quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#39. I saw myself before an infuriated mob, facing the firing squad, weeping out of pity for the evil they could not understand, and forgiving!-Like Jeanne d'Arc!-'Priests, professors, masters, you are making a mistake in turning me over to the law. I have never belonged to this people; I have never been a Christian; I am of the race that sang under torture; laws I have never understood; I have no moral sense, I am a brute: you are making a mistake.'
Yes, my eyes are closed to your light. I am a beast, a nigger. But I can be saved. You are sham niggers, you, maniacs, fiends, misers. Merchant, you are a nigger; Judge, you are a nigger; General, you are a nigger; Emperor, old itch, you are a nigger: you have drunk of the untaxed liquor of Satan's still.-Fever and cancer inspire this people. Cripples and old men are so respectable they are fit to be boiled.-The smartest thing would be to leave this continent where madness stalks to provide hostages for these wretches. I enter the true kingdom of the children of Ham. #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Smallest Continent quotes by Vernon Johnson
#40. Surely--we argue--it is safer to make, at the Morning Offering, a virtual intention covering all the day, and then carry on with practical common sense.
This sounds excellent in theory, but too often it breaks down in practice and merely ends in the making of the Morning Offering, while we slip through the day on a purely natural plane till we arrive at our prayers in the evening; and it is precisely our habit of thus meeting the smallest actions of our daily life on the natural plane which makes them more than we can cope with. Divorced from their true purpose, that of leading us out of ourselves to God and to our fellow-men, they imprison us within ourselves and make us give way to self-pity and discontent.
On the other hand, if we do everything to please Our Lord we shall find ourselves becoming more and more alert to help others and far more conscious of the endless little opportunities around us, the value of which we had never realized before. #Quote by Vernon Johnson
Smallest Continent quotes by Lisa Genova
Smallest Continent quotes by David Cameron
#42. What Churchill described as the twin marauders of war and tyranny have been almost entirely banished from our continent. Today, hundreds of millions dwell in freedom, from the Baltic to the Adriatic, from the Western Approaches to the Aegean. #Quote by David Cameron
Smallest Continent quotes by Lee Westwood
#43. It's such a psychological and mental game, golf, that the smallest wrong thing at the wrong time can distract you from what you're trying to achieve. #Quote by Lee Westwood
Smallest Continent quotes by Colm Toibin
#44. Wait until you're old, Nora," she said, "and then you'll know. It's the mixture of being content with even the smallest thing and then feeling a great dissatisfaction with everything. #Quote by Colm Toibin
Smallest Continent quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#45. Movies are made out of darkness as well as light; it is the surpassingly brief intervals of darkness between each luminous still image that make it possible to assemble the many images into one moving picture. Without that darkness, there would only be a blur. Which is to say that a full-length movie consists of half an hour or an hour of pure darkness that goes unseen. If you could add up all the darkness, you would find the audience in the theater gazing together at a deep imaginative night. It is the terra incognita of film, the dark continent on every map. In a similar way, a runner's every step is a leap, so that for a moment he or she is entirely off the ground. For those brief instants, shadows no longer spill out from their feet, like leaks, but hover below them like doubles, as they do with birds, whose shadows crawl below them, caressing the surface of the earth, growing and shrinking as their makers move nearer or farther from that surface. For my friends who run long distances, these tiny fragments of levitation add up to something considerable; by their own power they hover above the earth for many minutes, perhaps some significant portion of an hour or perhaps far more for the hundred-mile races. We fly; we dream in darkness; we devour heaven in bites too small to be measured. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Smallest Continent quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#46. I have more artistic control in a smaller show. But it doesn't really matter. Sometimes you can have the smallest role in the smallest production and still make a big impact. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Smallest Continent quotes by Gloria Burgess
#47. To change the world, a country, an organization, a community, a relationship, begin with the smallest seed of change: begin with yourself. That is what this book is all about. #Quote by Gloria Burgess
Smallest Continent quotes by Patrick Vlaskovits
#48. You want to understand the smallest feature set customers will pay for in the first release. #Quote by Patrick Vlaskovits
Smallest Continent quotes by John Bul Dau
#49. Times slows when your life is in danger. Every second takes a minute to pass, and even the smallest event gets chiseled into memory. (95) #Quote by John Bul Dau
