Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#1. Research has shown that the perceived style of leadership is by far the most important thing to most voters in evaluating officeholders and candidates. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Sylvia Plath
#2. It will be long before everyone is wiped out. People live in war time, they always have. There was terror down through history - and the men who saw the Spanish Armada sail over the rim of the world, who saw the Black death wipe out half of Europe, those men were frightened, terrified. But though they lived and died in fear, I am here; we have built again. And so I will belong to a dark age, and historians will say "We have few documents to show how the common people lived at this time. Records lead us to believe that a majority were killed. But there were glorious men." And school children will sigh and learn the names of Truman and Senator McCarthy. Oh, it is hard for me to reconcile myself to this. But maybe this is why I am a girl - - - so I can live more safely than the boys I have known and envied, so I can bear children, and instill in them the biting eating desire to learn and love life which I will never quite fulfill, because there isn't time, because there isn't time at all, but instead the quick desperate fear, the ticking clock, and the snow which comes too suddenly upon the summer. Sure, I'm dramatic and sloppily semi-cynical and semi-sentimental. But in leisure years I could grow and choose my way. Now I am living on the edge. We all are on the brink, and it takes a lot of nerve, a lot of energy, to teeter on the edge, looking over, looking down into the windy blackness and not being quite able to make out, through the yellow, stinking mist, just what lies belo #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Teeter quotes by Liane Moriarty
#3. For a moment Tess felt her strange, inappropriate happiness teeter. It was as though she were balanced on a narrow crevice surrounded by chasms of grief. One wrong thought and down she'd tumble. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#4. Whatever he does should be seen as working at the Presidency and if he goes to Colorado for Christmas, it should be for a minimum amount of time, the family tradition and family get-together aspect emphasized, and it be seen as a working vacation. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#5. I think we need one recognized, respected public figure to make a tough, blunt statement on just what Reagan's record is and what he might do to the country, let alone the Republican Party before Christmas. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Chanda Hahn
#6. I'm sorry if I have the emotional stability of a teeter-totter right now, but that's better than you, who has the emotional maturity of a rock. #Quote by Chanda Hahn
Teeter quotes by Kevin Bolger
#7. Normally Felicity liked to spend her recess holding the duty teacher's hand and tattling on kids who were breaking nitpicky safety rules like no climbing fences, no running up the slide, and no using the teeter-totter as a human catapult. - Zombiekins #Quote by Kevin Bolger
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter

Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#12. We need a little more 'Hail to the Chief.' #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Charles Bukowski
#13. something's knocking at the door

a great white light dawns across the
continent
as we fawn over our failed traditions,
often kill to preserve them
or sometimes kill just to kill.
it doesn't seem to matter: the answers dangle just
out of reach,
out of hand, out of mind.


the leaders of the past were insufficient,
the leaders of the present are unprepared.
we curl up tightly in our beds at night and wait.
it is a waiting without hope, more like a prayer for unmerited grace.


it all looks more and more like the same old movie.
the actors are different but the plot's the same:
senseless.


we should have known, watching our fathers.
we should have known, watching our mothers.
they did not know, they too were not prepared to teach.
we were too naive to ignore their counsel and now we have embraced their ignorance as our own.
we are them, multiplied.
we are their unpaid debts.
we are bankrupt in money and in spirit.


there are a few exceptions, of course, but these teeter on the
edge
and will
at any moment
tumble down to join the rest
of us,
the raving, the battered, the blind and the sadly
corrupt.


a great white light dawns across the
continent,
the flowers open blindly in the stinking wind,
#Quote by Charles Bukowski
Teeter quotes by Liam Callanan
#14. It's only with mild surprise I find I don't so much read anymore, but rather teeter, wonder, take flight, like Pascal, like Madeline, like Bemelmans, like Lamorisse, like my daughters. Like Robert. Like anyone who has ever started or finished a book, or a love affair, or confused the two, in sweet anticipation of the fall. #Quote by Liam Callanan
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#15. Look at the declining television coverage. Look at the declining voting rate. Economics and economic news is what moves the country now, not politics. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#16. The President has not created any Ford constituency, unique from that of any Republican President. The one exception to this is that he does show unique strength with young voters for a Republican. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Shozan Jack Haubner
#17. In the Buddhist view, I depend on you for my existence. All things depend on each other, equally. Welcome to the doctrine of dependent origination. It's teeter-totter metaphysics - I arise, you arise; you arise, I arise. Forget about our presumed Maker, the divine machinist in the sky. Take a look at this moment right now. You are you because you are not something else; therefore, what you are not - the chair beneath you, the air in your lungs, these words - births you through an infinity of opposites. It's like the ultimate Dr. Seuss riddle: Without all the things that are not you, who would you be you to? There's no Higher Power in this system to grab on to for support; we are all already supporting each other. Pull a person or people the wrong way and you immediately redefine yourself in light of what you've done to your neighbor. #Quote by Shozan Jack Haubner
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#18. While these attitudes are more visible when directed at government, there is ample evidence that many working people distrust their own union as much as they do the corporation they work for. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#19. We ought not to be looking for something spectacular but rather develop a plan in conjunction with the White House to work our way out of this problem over the next six weeks. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#20. Let's put a
chimpanzee in a tiny cage fronted by concrete bars. The animal would go berserk,
throw itself against the walls, rip out its hair, inflict cruel bites on itself, and in 73%
of cases will actually end up killing itself. Let's now make a breach in one of the
walls, which we will place next to a bottomless precipice. Our friendly sample
quadrumane will approach the edge, he'll look down, but remain at the edge for
ages, return there time and again, but generally he won't teeter over the brink; and
in all events his nervous state will be radically assuaged. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Teeter quotes by Charles Bukowski
#21. For each Joan of Arc there is a Hitler perched at the other end of the teeter-totter. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Teeter quotes by Roman Payne
#22. She was a free bird one minute: queen of the world and laughing. The next minute she would be in tears like a porcelain angel, about to teeter, fall and break. She never cried because she was afraid that something 'would' happen; she would cry because she feared something that could render the world more beautiful, 'would not' happen. #Quote by Roman Payne
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#23. Many citizens see all the leadership of these large institutions together in a conspiracy against them rather than in any adversary relationship with each other. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#24. As the society has gotten larger and more complex, individuals have lost their ability to influence any of the institutions that affect their lives. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#25. The President's political travel is going to get blamed (and probably rightly) for a share of this downturn. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#26. There are not enough people out talking about the President positively. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Barry Lynes
#27. A noted cancer specialist in Boston said he believed that if some simple and inexpensive replacement for Chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer were found tomorrow, all US medical schools would teeter on the verge of bankruptcy, so integral a part of their hospital revenues is oncology, the medical specialty of cancer treatment #Quote by Barry Lynes
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#28. While the President leads his potential adversaries in almost every state, his support is soft. He is seen as honest, sincere, just, and friendly but gets mediocre or relatively poor ratings being competent strong, intelligent, and a forceful leader. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#29. Every person has only so much attention to give, and politics and government takes up only a fraction of what it did 25 years ago. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by James Wolcott
#30. I understand that one of the purposes of bipartisanship is to cram something difficult and necessary down the American people's gullets for which neither party has the fortitude to assume full responsibility. It's a way of turning a possible gangplank into a teeter-totter. #Quote by James Wolcott
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#31. We need people out talking about the President, explaining, agreeing with and praising his actions. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robin York
#32. You think it's...like a prank. Like the time you and the guys soaped all the windows at the high school or rolled the football coach's car to the park and left it on top of the teeter-totter. What did you do, stay up late with a six-pack of beer, jerking off to porn, and then think I should put Caroline up here? #Quote by Robin York
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#33. Another cause for the increase in alienation and cynicism is a feeling that too many policy decisions that affect individuals have been taken out of any system that has accountability or that they can influence. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Rick Yancey
#34. The intervening years are sucked down these acheronian halls like light into a black hole while you helplessly teeter upon the event horizon, where time is measured by the beating of a fly's wing in the stagnant air. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Teeter quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#35. No, see the slide's too high. He could fall and get a concussion. (Wulf)
Forget that. He could rack himself on the teeter-totter. (Chris)
Teeter-totter nothing. The swings are a choking hazard. Whose idea was it for him to have this? (Urian) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Teeter quotes by Lynn Culbreath Noel
#36. It's hard to see a river all at once, especially in the mountains. Down on the plains, rivers run in their course as straightforward as time, channeled toward the sea. But up in the headwaters, a river isn't a point where you stand. In the beginnings of the river, you teeter on the edge of a hundred tiny watersheds where one drop of water is always tipping the balance from one stream to another. History changes with each tiny event, shaping an outcome that we can only fully grasp in hindsight. And that view changes as we move farther downstream. #Quote by Lynn Culbreath Noel
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#37. The President, the Administration and the campaign need a theme. I am concerned that the President is seen as a tactician without an overall strategy of his plan for the country. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#38. Without a Mayaguez, or something comparable that we don't see in the immediate future, there is probably no one thing the President can do to himself to turn this situation around. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Christine Feehan
#39. He felt her shift her weight, felt them both teeter, and then they were tumbling into the pool beneath them.
Locked together, they went to the bottom, their mouths clinging to one another, their shared laughter in their minds. He kicked his legs strongly as she wrapped hers around his waist. Their heads broke the surface, sending rings of ripples skipping over the water.
She was laughing, catching his face in her hands. "You are so incredibly romantic, Jacques, I can barely catch my breath here."
His hands moved up to catch her buttocks, to massage suggestively. He raised one eyebrow. "Are you saying this was my fault? Woman, I never lose my balance. I needed to follow you into the water to keep you from embarrassing yourself. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Teeter quotes by Rahman Baba
#40. Sow flowers to make a garden bloom around you,
The thorns you sow will prick your own feet.
Arrows shot at others
Will return to hit you as they fall.
You yourself will come to teeter on the lip
Of a well dug to undermine another.
Though you look at others with contempt,
It's you whose body will be reduced to dust.
Humanity is all one body;
To torture another is simply to wound yourself.
[ ... ]Make your path straight now, by the bright light of day;
For pitch darkness will come without warning. #Quote by Rahman Baba
Teeter quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#41. If success is really dependent on someone liking you or not liking you, and you have to teeter on that kind of tightrope of how you're supposed to act and how you're supposed to look and who you are, it's just not a healthy way to live. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Teeter quotes by Jonathan Maberry
#42. There are moments that define a person's whole life. Moments in which everything they are and everything they may possibly become balance on a single decision. Life and death, hope and despair, victory and failure teeter precariously on the decision made at that moment. These are moments ungoverned by happenstance, untroubled by luck. These are the moments in which a person earns the right to live, or not. #Quote by Jonathan Maberry
Teeter quotes by Robert Teeter
#43. I think he could have made most of the trips and gone to most of the fund-raisers if he would have avoided the partisan rhetoric and talked to the country as President in each of these appearances rather than to the narrow partisan audiences. #Quote by Robert Teeter
Teeter quotes by Blake Crouch
#44. onto his side and pushed up into a sitting position, tucking his head between his knees. Sensed the instability of the world long before he opened his eyes, like its axis had been cut loose to teeter. His first deep breath #Quote by Blake Crouch
