Wells quotes by Joe Buck

Wells quotes by Simone Weil
#2. Bourgeois society is infected by monomania: the monomania of accounting. For it, the only thing that has value is what can be counted in francs and centimes. It never hesitates to sacrifice human life to figures which look well on paper, such as national budgets or industrial balance sheets. #Quote by Simone Weil
Wells quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#3. You do sometimes have to work on things where you love the cast and you love the filmmaker, and the role might not be great but it's fun. I'm totally down to do those things, and will continue to do those things, as well, but it at least has to be peppered with roles that are really interesting and that are hard. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Wells quotes by Chris Cleave
#4. Is it my fault if I do not look like an English girl and I do not talk like a Nigerian? Well, who says an English girl must have skin as pale as the clouds that float across her summers? Who says a Nigerian girl must speak in fallen English ... ? #Quote by Chris Cleave
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#5. If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn't expecting it. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Gayle Rubin
#6. Youth Liberation has argued for some time that young people should have the right to have sex as well as not to have it, and with whom they choose. The statutory structure of the sex laws has been identified as oppressive and insulting to young people. A range of sexual activities are legally defined as molestation, regardless of the quality of the relationship or the amount of consent involved. #Quote by Gayle Rubin
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells

Wells quotes by John Selden
#9. He that hath a scrupulous conscience is like a horse that is not well weighed; he starts at every bird that flies out of the hedge. #Quote by John Selden

#10. An idiot child screaming in a hospital." (on George Bernard Shaw) #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Amelia E. Barr
#11. Mediocrity is always in a rush; but whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing with consideration. For genius is nothing more nor less than doing well what anyone can do badly. #Quote by Amelia E. Barr
Wells quotes by William Julius Wilson
#12. But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance. #Quote by William Julius Wilson
Wells quotes by Sir Charles Sedley, 5th Baronet
#13. Lovers, like dying men, may well
At first disorder'd be,
Since none alive can truly tell
What Fortune they must see. #Quote by Sir Charles Sedley, 5th Baronet
Wells quotes by Martha Wells
#14. Expecting it and having it happen were two different things, something I learned the first time I got shot to pieces. #Quote by Martha Wells
Wells quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#15. As president, Reagan worked very well with Democrats to do big things. It is true that he worked to reduce the size of government and cut federal taxes and he eliminated many regulations, but he also raised taxes when necessary. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Wells quotes by Deborah Wells
#16. The dark man is ubiquitous. People from all times and in all places have recorded their experiences of him in stories, poems, paintings, songs, stone, dance, crafts and prayers. Saint or sinner, scientist or theologian, agnostic or true believer, it makes little difference as the dark man has walked beside us since the very beginning and he will stay with us until the end. He is so intrinsic to the human experience that everyone has at least one dark man story to tell... #Quote by Deborah Wells
Wells quotes by Martin Bashir
#17. For watching sports, I tend to drink Guinness; early evenings always begin well with a Grey Goose and tonic with plenty of lime; and on a cold winter's night, there's nothing quite like a glass of Black Maple Hill ... an absolute peach of a bourbon. #Quote by Martin Bashir
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#18. I had not, I said to myself, come into the future to carry on a miniature flirtation. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Robin Wall Kimmerer
#19. A bay is a noun only if water is dead. When bay is a noun, it is defined by humans, trapped between its shores and contained by the word. But the verb wiikwegamaa - to be a bay - releases the water from bondage and lets it live. "To be a bay" holds the wonder that, for this moment, the living water has decided to shelter itself between these shores, conversing with cedar roots and a flock of baby mergansers. Because it could do otherwise - become a stream or an ocean or a waterfall, and there are verbs for that, too. To be a hill, to be a sandy beach, to be a Saturday, all are possible verbs in a world where everything is alive. Water, land, and even a day, the language a mirror for seeing the animacy of the world, the life that pulses through all things, through pines and nuthatches and mushrooms. This is the language I hear in the woods; this is the language that lets us speak of what wells up all around us.[…]
This is the grammar of animacy. #Quote by Robin Wall Kimmerer
Wells quotes by Michio Kaku
#20. There are so many wonders awaiting us. If we can upload memories, then we might be able to combat Alzheimers, as well as create a brain-net of memories and emotions to replace the internet, which would revolutionize entertainment, the economy, and our way of life. Maybe even to help us live forever, and send consciousness into outer space. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Wells quotes by Emile Zola
#21. Since the same human mire remains beneath, does not all civilization reduce itself to the superiority of smelling nice and living well? #Quote by Emile Zola
Wells quotes by Joseph Wood Krutch
#22. Both the cockroach and the bird would get along very well without us, although the cockroach would miss us most. #Quote by Joseph Wood Krutch
Wells quotes by Amber Frey
#23. Well, I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I've been seeing this really sweet guy for the past few weeks. #Quote by Amber Frey
Wells quotes by Haruki Murakami
#24. On any given day, something can come along and steal our hearts. It may be any old thing: a rosebud, a lost cap, a favorite sweater from childhood, an old Gene Pitney record. A miscellany of trivia with no home to call their own. Lingering for two or three days, that something soon disappears, returning to the darkness. There are wells, deep wells, dug in our hearts. Birds fly over them."
-from "Pinball, 1973 #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Wells quotes by Steven Gerrard
#25. If you don't play well, you have a bad game or a nightmare you know that the amount of coverage is worldwide. #Quote by Steven Gerrard
Wells quotes by Carolyn Wells

Wells quotes by Katie Pavlich
#27. Well, I am actually a daughter of the American Revolution #Quote by Katie Pavlich
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells

Wells quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#29. Sometimes good people [are] helpless ... terrible things happen ... to good people ... there [are] sad endings as well as happy ones. #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Wells quotes by Gary Kemp
#30. For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That's all I did. I had no other social life. I don't want my life to be like that now. I've spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun. #Quote by Gary Kemp
Wells quotes by William Shakespeare
#31. King Henry: But what a point, my lord, your falcon made, And what a pitch she flew above the rest! To see how God in all his creatures works! Yea, man and birds are fain of climbing high. Suffolk: No marvel, an it like your majesty, My lord protectors hawks do tower so well; They know their masters loves to be aloft, And bears his thoughts above his falcon's pitch. Gloucester: My lord, 'tis but a base ignoble mind That mounts no higher than a bird can soar. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Wells quotes by Jackee Harry
#32. Well, there's no other person like me. Ain't nobody else like me. It's flattering. I don't like to do it too much because I get tired of me. But people ask, so I get to do it every now and then. #Quote by Jackee Harry
Wells quotes by Ben Crenshaw
#33. Hale Irwin is the exception. He just does everything so well. #Quote by Ben Crenshaw
Wells quotes by Bryan Ferry
#34. I like to think Duke Ellington would probably embrace a fragrance as well. #Quote by Bryan Ferry
Wells quotes by Hattie Carnegie
#35. My clothes are built to show off the woman who wears them. I like them to be simple ... to move well, to move with the times and a little ahead of the times. #Quote by Hattie Carnegie
Wells quotes by David Gest
#36. I knew I couldn't solve it. Because I couldn't figure out what made her drink when things were going well. #Quote by David Gest
Wells quotes by Don Yaeger
#37. You gotta do common things, uncommonly well. #Quote by Don Yaeger
Wells quotes by David E. Hoffman
#38. My goal was to show the history of the end of the Cold War through both sides - the U.S. side and the Soviet side. I really felt that especially the Soviet side of the story hadn't been well told because we didn't know. #Quote by David E. Hoffman
Wells quotes by Vanessa Williams
#39. Well, my mom taught public school music for almost 40 years. And she's about 5 feet - and very mighty. And she would control her kids a lot by giving them the eye, or the stare. #Quote by Vanessa Williams
Wells quotes by Jim Clyburn
#40. Democrats are fighting for a new direction that includes protecting Social Security as well as making healthcare affordable, bringing down the high cost of gasoline, and making higher education more accessible for all Americans. #Quote by Jim Clyburn
Wells quotes by Jerry Coleman
#41. Thomas is racing for it, but McCovey is there and can't get his glove to it. That play shows the inexperience, not on Thomas' part, but on the part of Willie McC ... well, not on McCovey's part either. #Quote by Jerry Coleman
Wells quotes by Maxine Greene
#42. What is crucial is the provision of opportunities for telling all the diverse stories, for interpreting membership as well as ethnicity, for making inescapable the braids of experience woven into the fabric of America's plurality. #Quote by Maxine Greene
Wells quotes by Jennifer Weiner
#43. This is so much harder than I ever thought it would be ... because the thing is, even if you're just working part-time, your boss is going to expect a full week's worth of work, no matter how understanding she is. That's just the nature of the working world-things have to get done, babies or not. And if you're like me-if you're like any woman who ever did well in school and did well at her job-you don't want to disappoint a boss. And you want to do a good job raising your baby ... It's not like you think it's going to be #Quote by Jennifer Weiner
Wells quotes by Alex Flinn
#44. I have a great deal of empathy for anyone who's having a hard time. I believe this ability to see another's viewpoint has served me well as a writer. #Quote by Alex Flinn
Wells quotes by Rachel Cohn
#45. Well what's in your Amazonian hope chest? #Quote by Rachel Cohn
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#46. He came away with an exasperated sense of failure. He denounced parliamentary government root and branch that night. Parliament was doomed. The fact that it had not listened to Rud was only one little conclusive fact in a long indictment. "It has become a series of empty forms," he said. "All over the world, always, the sawdust of reality is running out of the shapes of quasi-public things. Not one British citizen in a thousand watches what is done in Parliament; not one in a thousand Americans follows the discourses of Congress. Interest has gone. Every election in the past thirty years has been fought on gross misunderstandings. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by David Nicholls
#47. I tell you what it is. It's ... when I didn't see you, I thought about you every day, I mean every day in some way or another -"
"Same here -"
"- even if it was just 'I wish Dexter could see this' or 'where's Dexter now?' or 'Christ, that Dexter, what an idiot', you know what I mean, and seeing you today, well, I thought I'd got you back - my best friend. And now all this, the wedding, the baby - I'm so happy for you, Dex. But it feels like I've lost you again. #Quote by David Nicholls
Wells quotes by Faye J Crosby
#48. Anyone who wishes to combine domestic responsibilities and paid employment with the least stress and most enjoyment might start by pondering this paradox: the first step to better functioning is to stop blaming herself for not functioning well enough. #Quote by Faye J Crosby
Wells quotes by Bob Woodward
#49. People like to pigeonhole and say, Well, I'm a Washington insider, and you know, that's quite silly. What does that even mean? #Quote by Bob Woodward
Wells quotes by Walt Disney
#50. Do what you do so well that those who see you do what you do are going to come back to see you do it again and tell others that they should see you do what you do. #Quote by Walt Disney
Wells quotes by David F. Wells
#51. God's holiness, then, is not only the opposite of evil; it is the measure by which we know evil to be evil. #Quote by David F. Wells
Wells quotes by Jonathan Horton
#52. After thorough reflection, I realized that my desire to achieve my goals in this sport outweighed my self-doubt. This perseverance has helped me to be successful not only in gymnastics, but in my non-athletic life as well. #Quote by Jonathan Horton
Wells quotes by Marina Warner
#53. I used to retain information extremely fast, so perhaps it's hardening a bit and I don't take the impression as well as I used to. Instead of writing in free flight, I had to check on the stories all the time. So I have decided I better to do it while I am fresh! #Quote by Marina Warner
Wells quotes by Marion Woodman
#54. We all experience 'soul moments' in life-when we see a magnificent sunrise, hear the call of the loon, see the wrinkles in our mother's hands, or smell the sweetness of a baby. During these moments, our body, as well as our brain, resonates as we experience the glory of being a human being. #Quote by Marion Woodman
Wells quotes by Jeremy Lin
#55. Well, I'm not here to live up to anyone else's expectations-I'm here to live up to mine. #Quote by Jeremy Lin
Wells quotes by Caroline B. Cooney
#56. Stephen had just come from a class discussion in which several students believed that the right cup of herbal tea would save them from pain and sorrow. Well acquainted with pain and sorrow, Stephen did not contribute to the discussion. He merely crossed these idiots off his list of possible friends. #Quote by Caroline B. Cooney
Wells quotes by Charles Bukowski
#57. Bad luck for the young poet would be a rich father, an early marriage, an early success or the ability to do anything well. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Wells quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#58. Let us be merciful as well as just. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Wells quotes by Giordano Bruno
#59. You explain right well, and you shew that you understand argument and are not a mere sophist since you accept that which cannot be denied. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Wells quotes by Theodore Bikel
#60. I am first, and foremost, an actor. That's what I am. To me, a song is a mini-drama. My musical ability informs the actor as well because it gives me a sense of timing that non-musicians don't have. So, one hand washes the other. #Quote by Theodore Bikel
Wells quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#61. I am a nationalist, and a Pan-Africanist, first and foremost. I was well grounded in history before ever taking a history course. I did not spend much formal time in school - I had to work. #Quote by John Henrik Clarke
Wells quotes by Jack Kornfield
#62. In the end, just three things matter:
How well we have lived
How well we have loved
How well we have learned to let go #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Wells quotes by Seneca The Younger
#63. On him does death lie heavily, who, but too well known to all, dies to himself unknown. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Wells quotes by Michael Malone
#64. As Gloria Steinem said about Ginger Rogers: She was doing everything Fred Astaire was doing, just doing it backwards in high heels. Well, Southern women are doing and enduring what other women have to do and endure, but (at least until recently) they had to do it in heels and hats and white gloves and makeup and a sweet smile, with maybe a glass of bourbon and a cigarette to get them through the magnolia part of being a steel magnolia. #Quote by Michael Malone
Wells quotes by Jaye Wells
#65. Debriefings were always framed as closure, but sometimes they felt like ritualized reopening of wounds. Having to stand in front of someone with the power to steal your badge and defend the choices you made in the line of fire felt like its own sort of hell. Not the watery hell of that lake with the monster and the madman, but a hell lorded over by the demons Would Have, Could Have, and Should have. #Quote by Jaye Wells
Wells quotes by Warren Buffett
#66. If you have a harem of 40 women, you never get to know any of them very well. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Wells quotes by Nick Cave
#67. At some point you start seeing the difference between what you really want, and what is your priority order. I feel that today I know what I want. That's the problem with perspective, as well as focus and concentration. #Quote by Nick Cave
Wells quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#68. In your heart must well that sympathy which soothes away all pains from the hearts of others. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Wells quotes by Charles Dance
#69. Because [writers] Dan Weiss and David Benioff have done such a great job in adapting them, that's what we work with. It serves no purpose to anybody for actors to come onto a set with a well-thumbed copy of the source material and start querying why this or that line has been left out of the script. It's probably been left out for a good reason. #Quote by Charles Dance
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#70. An immense and ever-increasing wealth of knowledge is scattered about the world today; knowledge that would probably suffice to solve all the mighty difficulties of our age, but it is dispersed and unorganized. We need a sort of mental clearing house for the mind: a depot where knowledge and ideas are received, sorted, summarized, digested, clarified and compared #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#71. I agree that two times two makes four is an excellent thing; but if we are dispensing praise, then two times two makes five is sometimes a most charming little thing as well. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Wells quotes by Jeffrey Jones
#72. Well, my brother was a schizophrenic, so I understood it in a different way from seeing my brother. #Quote by Jeffrey Jones
Wells quotes by K.C. Wells
#73. Scuse me diary ... gotta take care of a pressing problem in my jeans right now.

Same day - later.

What? At least I didn't come over your nice, clean pages, right? #Quote by K.C. Wells
Wells quotes by Jack White
#74. Well, I sort of don't trust anybody who doesn't like Led Zeppelin. #Quote by Jack White
Wells quotes by Johnnetta B. Cole
#75. Racism is alive and doing too well in America. #Quote by Johnnetta B. Cole
Wells quotes by Cory Wells
#76. I was a big fan of black gospel. As a kid, there were black groups I sang with from my teen years to my early 20s. #Quote by Cory Wells
Wells quotes by Tre Cool
#77. I told my dad 'Yeah, I'm going to be a drummer', and he said 'Well, if you can rub your stomach at the same time as you pat your head at the same time you're standing on one leg and kicking the other one out in a circle and say the pledge of allegiance'. And I did all that just like bam, you know? #Quote by Tre Cool
Wells quotes by Rebecca Wells
#78. It's life. You don't figure it out. You just climb up on the beast and ride. #Quote by Rebecca Wells
Wells quotes by Gloria Naylor
#79. Contempt mates well with pity. #Quote by Gloria Naylor
Wells quotes by Bo Burnham
#80. Then the challenge is, once you left brain it and build it, then when you're on stage you have to know it so well that you can get lost in it. I don't want to be onstage looking like a robot, I want to be at the end of the day very emotional and what feels like someone being up there rather than reciting things. That's always the challenge, to analyze and then somehow lose yourself in something you absolutely know backwards and forwards. And nothing's going to surprise you, but you have to be surprised by it and let it surprise you. #Quote by Bo Burnham
Wells quotes by Hilary Duff
#81. Well, I'm not going to be singing about lollipops because I no longer relate to lollipops. #Quote by Hilary Duff
Wells quotes by Tamara Mellon
#82. Men always look smart in a well-fitted, tailored suit. Conversely, they can be incredibly handsome in jeans combined with a cashmere jumper or a beaten-up leather jacket or even just a cotton T-shirt. #Quote by Tamara Mellon
Wells quotes by Christopher Titus
#83. How come Mom is crazy and I'm not? Well, it's possible my mom could stand up in front of this many people and talk about all the crap in her life and those people could have sat around and laughed with her, it would've meant nothing and she could have moved on cool. It's also possible she could have taken out the whole front row with a large-caliber weapon. #Quote by Christopher Titus
Wells quotes by Donald Trump
#84. Jeb Bush brought it up at the debate and he was doing it very well, and all of a sudden, I don't know what happened, but he got shut down. #Quote by Donald Trump
Wells quotes by Robert Jordan
#85. Dance well with a woman, and she's halfway yours. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Wells quotes by Winston Churchill
#86. We proceeded systematically, village by village and we destroyed the houses, filled up the wells, blew down the towers, cut down the shady trees, burned the crops and broke the reservoirs in punitive devastation. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Wells quotes by Terry Goodkind
#87. Kahlan ambled toward the door. "Well, my breasts aren't as large as yours Berdine." She slowed as she passed Raina. "I think Raina's hands would fit mine better. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Wells quotes by Akshay Kumar
#88. I'm glad that my films have been consistently faring well rather than one stray Friday! #Quote by Akshay Kumar
Wells quotes by Shane Carruth
#89. 'Pierrot le Fou' is something I keep coming back to. It's so surreal but still really engaging - it proves narratives within narratives are a landscape that can be pursued well. #Quote by Shane Carruth
Wells quotes by John Garamendi
#90. Well, actually, if you can stay in your home that is a better deal for the neighborhood. It's certainly a better deal for the person that is in their home, rather than to be on the street and for that house to go into foreclosure and become a problem for the whole community. #Quote by John Garamendi
Wells quotes by James Payn
#91. As a rule, anyone who can tell a good story can write one, so there really need be no mistake about his qualification; such a man will be careful not to be wearisome, and to keep his point, or his catastrophe, well in hand. #Quote by James Payn
Wells quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#92. The real challenge of acting for me, I suppose, is just getting to know a character very, very well and just applying what I know about them to every single scene. That's what it can be broken down to. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Wells quotes by Shane Filan
#93. You shouldn't end a band like Westlife and not be financially secure to some extent, but I wasn't at all - it was the complete opposite. But you look at stuff then, 'Well, what do I have? I don't have money but I have a great marriage, three healthy kids, and I have my voice. I'll just start again.' #Quote by Shane Filan
Wells quotes by Shaul Schwarz
#94. I think people were very skeptical always when they said, "Oh docs, they don't work. When you make depressing docs that don't have 'save this or save that,' they just can't do well." I fought very hard to say, "No. This is important. I think people care and I think it's interesting." I hope people go see it. #Quote by Shaul Schwarz
Wells quotes by Michel Pastoureau
#95. Some bears are sold for amazing sums at auction. An example is a very old stuffed individual named Mabel that had belonged to Elvis Presley (as a child or an adult?) and had been sold at auction several times after the King's death; it was made in the Steiff workshop in 1909. Its end was exceedingly sinister. Lent by its owner for an exhibition of stuffed bears in Wells, England, in which it was to be the star attraction, it provoked a hatred or jealousy of a young Doberman accompanying the night watchman after the first day of the exhibition. The dog seized the precious relic and furiously bit and clawed it to pieces. (252) #Quote by Michel Pastoureau
Wells quotes by Derek Jeter
#96. What kind of influence did my parents have on my life? Well, they had the most influence. These are the people who are closest to me. My parents are very positive people. They've been supportive. They're always there. #Quote by Derek Jeter
Wells quotes by Jay Ellis
#97. You have to believe in yourself and you have to take risks. You know how people say 30 is new 20 and 40 is new 30? Well I think essentially what that's telling us is there are so many opportunities out there, you don't have to rush into something. #Quote by Jay Ellis
Wells quotes by Bill Bryson
#98. The people are immensely likable - cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted, and unfailingly obliging. Their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water. They have a society that is prosperous, well ordered, and instinctively egalitarian. The food is excellent. The beer is cold. The sun nearly always shines. There is coffee on every corner. Life doesn't get much better than this. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Wells quotes by Campbell Newman
#99. Well, something is happening in Queensland that is not happening anywhere else. #Quote by Campbell Newman
Wells quotes by George Best
#100. The best thing about being a dad? Well, I think it's just the thing that every man wants - to have a son and heir. #Quote by George Best
Wells quotes by John Dalton
#101. Berzelius' symbols are horrifying. A young student in chemistry might as soon learn Hebrew as make himself acquainted with them ... They appear to me equally to perplex the adepts in science, to discourage the learner, as well as to cloud the beauty and simplicity of the atomic theory. #Quote by John Dalton
Wells quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#102. In such times as we are in, whether the threats be global or local or in individual lives, I too pray for the children. Some days it seems that a sea of temptation and transgression inundates them, simply washes over them before they can successfully withstand it, before they should have to face it. And often at least some of the forces at work seem beyond our personal control. Well, some of them may be beyond our control, but I testify with faith in the living God that they are not beyond His. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Wells quotes by Donald Verrilli Jr.
#103. There was this point about, you know, the basic point there as well - this statute treats some parts of the country different from others, and what's the justification for that? Well, you know, I had eight million things to say about that, but he put it in such a sharp, excruciating way that it was just very hard to handle it effectively. #Quote by Donald Verrilli Jr.
Wells quotes by Hugh Nibley
#104. Well, I have a testimony, I may be ignorant, but I am not lost. #Quote by Hugh Nibley
Wells quotes by Steve Jobs
#105. Well, Apple invented the PC as we know it, and then it invented the graphical user interface as we know it eight years later (with the introduction of the Mac). But then, the company had a decade in which it took a nap. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Wells quotes by Murray Rothbard
#106. The costs of government are bound to be much higher than those of the free market ... The State cannot calculate well and therefore cannot gauge its costs accurately. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Wells quotes by Ned Vizzini
#107. I know a lot of famous people didn't do well at school, like James Brown; he dropped out in fifth grade to be an entertainer, I respect that ... but that's not going to be me. I'm not going to be able to do anything but work as hard as possible all the time and compete with everyone I know all the time to make it. #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Wells quotes by William J. Clinton
#108. The fundamental problem you have anywhere is when people think their lives and the lives of their children don't matter, they they are somehow disposable, just like a paper napkin after a lunch at a restaurant or something, if we want our freedom to be in deed as well as word in America, we have to make people feel that everybody matters again. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Wells quotes by Abraham Maslow
#109. People with intelligence must use their intelligence, people with eyes must use their eyes, people with the capacity to love have the impulse to love and the need to love in order to feel healthy. Capacities clamor to be used, and cease in their clamor only when they are used sufficiently. That is to say, capacities are needs, and therefore are intrinsic values as well. #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Wells quotes by Barbara Pym
#110. I imagine the proverb about too many cooks spoiling the broth can be applied to writing as well as anything else. The poetical or literary broth is better cooked by one person. #Quote by Barbara Pym
Wells quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#111. Our survival as a species depends on our ability to recognize that our well-being and the well-being of others are in fact one and the same. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Wells quotes by Henry Watson Fowler
#112. Quotation ... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium. #Quote by Henry Watson Fowler
Wells quotes by Rene Daumal
#113. You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. #Quote by Rene Daumal
Wells quotes by Nikki Glaser
#114. No guy is ever gonna be like, 'Well, I'm not into her because she just doesn't seem into me!' That's never been a complaint for why a guy doesn't like a girl. Ever! That's an attractive thing, so always err on the side of aloofness. #Quote by Nikki Glaser
Wells quotes by Frances Fox Piven
#115. The only way to change American society, and indeed I think this is true of other societies as well, is for people to discover the power latent in the cooperative roles that they play in a range of institutions. #Quote by Frances Fox Piven
Wells quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#116. State a moral case to a plowman and a professor. The former will decide it as well, and often better than the latter, because he has not been led astray by artificial rules. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Wells quotes by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
#117. I am not religious, but I am a pious man ... A religious man has a definite religion. He says "God is there" or "God is there," "God is there." "Your god is not my god, and that's all." But the pious man, he just looks out with awe, and says, "where is God?" And "well, I don't understand it and I would like to know what this creation really means." That is a pious man, who is really touched by the greatness of nature and of the creation. #Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#118. For three centuries the life of the Hebrews was like the life of a man who insists upon living in the middle of a busy thoroughfare, and is consequently being run over constantly by omnibuses and motor-lorries. Pul #Quote by H.G.Wells

Wells quotes by Janet Evanovich
#124. The elevator doors opened, and Ranger stepped out and spied Tank stretched out on the carpet.
"Fainted," I said.
Ranger walked to Tank and stood hands on hips, staring down at him. "Tank doesn't faint. I've been in firefights with him. He's a rock."
"Well, the rock fainted. #Quote by Janet Evanovich

Wells quotes by J.R. Ward

Wells quotes by Richelle Mead
#131. Well ... what did you promise exactly? Not to tell anyone that Eric Dragomir had a mistress and baby?"
Sonya nodded.
"And not to tell who they were?"
Sonya nodded again.
Sydney gave Sonya the warmest, friendliest smile i'd ever seen on the Alchemist. "Did you promise not to tell anyone where they are?" Sonya nodded, and Sydney's smile faltered a little. Then her eyes lit up. "Did you promise not to LEAD anyone to where they are? #Quote by Richelle Mead
Wells quotes by Bernie Siegel
#132. It is astounding how much the immune system is strengthened by reducing daily mental stress levels with either visualization or meditation. The other great tonic for the immune system is love - loving ourselves as well as others. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Wells quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#133. Perhaps the most radical thing we followers of Jesus can do in the information age is treat each other like humans-not heroes, not villains, not avatars, not statuses, not Republicans, not Democrats, not Calvinists, not Emergents-just humans. This wouldn't mean we would stop disagreeing, but I think it would mean we would disagree well. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Wells quotes by Dan Wells
#134. The actual words I used," I said, "were that I followed strict rules to make sure I didn't do anything wrong. It seems like you'd be pretty happy about that, but instead you're yelling at me. This is why I need therapy."
"'Happy' is not a son who has to follow rules to keep himself from killing people," she shot back. "'Happy' is not a psychologist telling me that my son is a sociopath. 'Happy' is - "
"He said I was a sociopath?" That was kind of cool. I'd always suspected, but it was nice to have an official diagnosis. #Quote by Dan Wells
Wells quotes by Mao Zedong
#135. We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Wells quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#136. Any damage that's been done, you have to fix yourself because it needs fixing and there is nobody else to do the work. Blame may well be justified, but it's not going to move you forward in your life. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Wells quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#137. A person who had no one would be well advised to cobble together some passable ghost. Breathe it into being and coax it along with words of love. Offer it each phantom crumb and shield it from harm with your body. As for me my only hope is for eternal nothingness and I hope it with all my heart. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Wells quotes by Abbi Glines
#138. Can I get a lock for my tent?
Bears can't unzip tents, Lana.
Well, chainsaw psychos who wander the woods looking for young girls all alone to chop up into pieces can.
There are no chainsaw psychos! I can't believe you've never been camping. It's safe, Lana. I promise.
Easy for you to say. You'll be snuggled up safely in the arms of Beau Vincent. I'm more than positive he could take on a black bear. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Wells quotes by Dan Cutforth
#139. I think it's really hard to say now what makes a show kind of sink or swim, and what creates longevity. For instance, I think that Survivor is a very well produced show. It's very simple, it's very elemental, and I think it gets into big issues. I think American Idol has been an amazing show for many, many seasons. #Quote by Dan Cutforth
Wells quotes by Martin Clunes
#140. Do I suffer for my art? Well, I get a lot of flatulence when I'm nervous. #Quote by Martin Clunes

Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#142. And she wanted to be free. It wasn't Mr. Brumley she wanted; he was but a means - if indeed he was a means - to an end. The person she wanted, the person she had always wanted - was herself. Could Mr. Brumley give her that? Would Mr. Brumley give her that? Was it conceivable he would carry sacrifice to such a pitch as that?... #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Kendall Jenner
#143. My first crush was this kid in kindergarten who told me he had tigers in his attic as well. #Quote by Kendall Jenner
Wells quotes by Albert Camus
#144. But again and again there comes a time in history when the man who dares to say that two and two make four is punished with death. The schoolteacher is well aware of this. And the question is not one of knowing what punishment or reward attends the making of this calculation. The question is one of knowing whether two and two do make four #Quote by Albert Camus
Wells quotes by Mary Wells Lawrence
#145. If you're not satisfied with your life, it's time to invent a new one. #Quote by Mary Wells Lawrence
Wells quotes by John Armstrong
#146. Your friends avoid you, brutishly transform'd
They hardly know you, or if one remains
To wish you well, he wishes you in heaven. #Quote by John Armstrong
Wells quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#147. You know, when one's in love,' I said, 'and things go all wrong, one's terribly unhappy and one thinks one won't ever get over it. But you'll be astounded to learn what the sea will do.'
What do you mean?' she smiled.
Well, love isn't a good sailor and it languishes on a sea voyage. You'll be surprised when you have the Atlantic between you and Larry to find how slight the pang is that before you sailed seemed intolerable. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Wells quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#148. The sudden and abrupt removal of my all-consuming goal ... well, it was like I was a donut, and somebody had sucked all the jelly out of me. But I could stuff new jelly in there. It would just get my hands a little sticky in the process. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#149. All men, however highly educated, retain some superstitious inklings. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Ida B. Wells
#150. It is extremely rough to follow through with my goals, but I felt a responsibility to show the world what the African Americans are facing through this rough patch. #Quote by Ida B. Wells
Wells quotes by Phillips Brooks
#151. No man ever yet thought whether he was preaching well without weakening his sermon. #Quote by Phillips Brooks
Wells quotes by Ryan Adams
#152. I like things that reach a little further and are a little more abstract, but I don't think that's what I do naturally well. How I write naturally is probably what's furthest from me, and the most removed from what I understand. #Quote by Ryan Adams
Wells quotes by Tim DeChristopher
#153. My spiritual path has largely been Christianity - a label that I embraced and then rejected and have partially embraced again, as my understanding of Christianity has changed over time. When I accepted the mainstream, dogmatic definition of Christianity there came a point when I had to say, "Well, if that's what a Christian is, I'm not one." #Quote by Tim DeChristopher
Wells quotes by Sugata Mitra
#154. The bottom line is, if you're not the one controlling your learning, you're not going to learn as well. #Quote by Sugata Mitra
Wells quotes by Richard Yates

Wells quotes by Susan Mann
#157. Technology is a cross-curriculum perspective running through the new Australia curriculum, and there are a number of technology subject areas as well which include coding which has not previously been part of the Australian Curriculum. #Quote by Susan Mann
Wells quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#158. To have a free, peaceful and prosperous world we must be ever stronger particularly in the spiritual things ... It is American belief in decency and justice and progress and the value of individual liberty because of the rights conferred on each of us by our Creator that willcarry us through ... There must be something in the heart as well as the head. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Wells quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#159. Heaping glowing coals on another person's head is usually misunderstood and comes to nothing because the other person knows just as well that he is in the right and has also given some thought on his own part to heaping coals. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Wells quotes by Anna Wintour
#160. People respond well to those that are sure of what they want. #Quote by Anna Wintour
Wells quotes by H.G.Wells
#161. A shambling, hairy, brutish, but probably very cunning creature with a big brain behind; so someone, I think it was Sir Harry Johnston, has described Homo Neanderthalensis. To this day we must still use similar terms to describe the soul of the politician. The statesman has still to oust the politician from his lairs and weapon heaps. History has still to become a record of human dignity. Finance #Quote by H.G.Wells
Wells quotes by Tim Fulford
#162. John Clare, in his poem To a Fallen Elm, makes the tree a selfmark as well as a landmark. #Quote by Tim Fulford
Wells quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#163. The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; 'tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Wells quotes by Joseph McGinty Nichol
#164. Some films go so well, and some films are disappointing. It's the beauty of the craft. You get it right, and you get it wrong. You have tremendous highs, and you have tremendous lows. Hopefully, you learn from them and become better, as you go along. #Quote by Joseph McGinty Nichol
Wells quotes by Paul McCartney
#165. One of my great memories of John is from when we were having some argument. I was disagreeing and we were calling each other names. We let it settle for a second and then he lowered his glasses and he said: "It's only me." And then he put his glasses back on again. To me, that was John. Those were the moments when I actually saw him without the facade, the armor, which I loved as well, like anyone else. It was a beautiful suit of armor. But it was wonderful when he let the visor down and you'd just see the John Lennon that he was frightened to reveal to the world. #Quote by Paul McCartney
Wells quotes by Jim Rohn
#166. Choose action, not rest. Choose the good in life in all things, and choose the opportunity as well as the chance to work when springtime smiles on your face. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Wells quotes by Erich Fromm
#167. Religion and nationalism, as well as any custom and any belief however absurd and degrading, if it only connects the individual with others, are refuges from what man most dreads: isolation. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Wells quotes by Keter Betts
#168. Find what it is you love to do and do it well. Make the world a better place. #Quote by Keter Betts
Wells quotes by Deepika Padukone
#169. I always think before I speak. I'm not the sort who will just say anything that comes to my mind. I'm a very emotional and sensitive person. But I'm also very strong and know my mind well. #Quote by Deepika Padukone
Wells quotes by Isaac

Wells quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#171. Oh, well. Everyone else has suave, cosmopolitan sheep: why not us? The Millers at Hepple have a ewe that's been to Kelso three times, and they've never been farther than Ford in their lives." Kate peered absently into the farm pond, and clucked again. "Thoughtless creatures. They've forgotten the fish. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett

Wells quotes by John Travolta
#175. Sometimes when something really works well, it becomes a target, forty years for me, I've been a part, and I've loved every minute of it. My family has done so well with it. It's been a beautiful thing for me. I've saved lives with it and saved my own life several times. Through my loss of my son, it helped me every step of the way for two years solid, and here I am. #Quote by John Travolta

Wells quotes by Jupiter Hammon
#178. When I was at Hartford in Connecticut, where I lived during the war, I published several pieces which were well received, not only by those of my own colour, but by a number of the white people, who thought they might do good among their servants. #Quote by Jupiter Hammon
Wells quotes by Billy Connolly
#179. What is it with McDonald's staff who pretend they don't understand you unless you insert the 'Mc' before the item you're ordering?

Wells quotes by Donnell Rawlings
#182. That's why when I talk to younger comics, and they say, 'Well I need this and this, and I need so and so,' I tell them they don't need nothing. All you need is some great idea and go shoot it. #Quote by Donnell Rawlings

Wells quotes by Hermann Von Helmholtz
#184. Heat can also be produced by the impact of imperfectly elastic bodies as well as by friction. This is the case, for instance, when we produce fire by striking flint against steel, or when an iron bar is worked for some time by powerful blows of the hammer. #Quote by Hermann Von Helmholtz
Wells quotes by Jonathan Hull
#185. Love is self-explanatory: the right person makes you feel well nigh immortal, vaccinating you with their affections. So long as you remain in their heart you are safe, or better than safe even, for a while at least. You are momentarily, in a state of grace. #Quote by Jonathan Hull
Wells quotes by Christina Ricci

Never mind-
Anyway ... #Quote by Stephen Sondheim

Wells quotes by Robert Motherwell
#193. Abstract expressionism was the first American art that was filled with anger as well as beauty. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Wells quotes by Ronald Reagan
#194. A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work. #Quote by Ronald Reagan

Wells quotes by Suze Orman
#198. You are to set your own value, communicate that value to the world, and then not settle for less. Sound daunting? That's just because it takes you out of your comfort zone. You have got to stop being an obstacle on your own path to wealth and security and happiness. You must understand that valuing yourself is well within your control. #Quote by Suze Orman
Wells quotes by Douglas Conant
#199. Ultimately as a leader, you're evaluated on how you interact with people. If you do it well, you develop a reputation as effective leader. If you don't, you develop a reputation for being a highly ineffective leader. #Quote by Douglas Conant
Wells quotes by Tim McGraw
