Winterbourne View quotes by Brian Alan Ellis
#1. If I ever get a car I'm going to hang a miniature garbage can from the rear view mirror and tell people it's my "dream catcher. #Quote by Brian Alan Ellis
Winterbourne View quotes by Nikki Rowe
#2. I see a lot of people complaining about the things they can fix, and a lot of people being accepting of the things they cannot change.
Maybe tragedy really is the catastrophic event, for the way people view their lives.
I would rather be wise, than nieve. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Winterbourne View quotes by Ovid
#3. And when wine has soaked Cupid's drunken wings,
he's stayed, weighed down, a captive of the place.
Wine rouses courage and is fit for passion:
care flies, and deep drinking dilutes it.
Don't trust the treacherous lamplight overmuch:
night and wine can harm your view of beauty.
Paris saw the goddesses in the light, a cloudless heaven,
when he said to Venus: 'Venus, you win, over them both.'
Faults are hidden at night: every blemish is forgiven,
and the hour makes whichever girl you like beautiful.
Judge jewellery, and fabric stained with purple,
judge a face, or a figure, in the light. #Quote by Ovid
Winterbourne View quotes by Shannon Lucid
#4. You think America is the biggest place on Earth, but it's not. [The view from Mir] put everything in perspective. #Quote by Shannon Lucid
Winterbourne View quotes by Harold Bloom
#5. What is literary tradition? What is a classic? What is a canonical view of tradition? How are canons of accepted classics formed,and how are they unformed? I think that all these quite traditional questions can take one simplistic but still dialectical question as their summing up: do we choose tradition or does it choose us, and why is it necessary that a choosing take place, or a being chosen? What happens if one tries to write, or to teach, or to think, or even to read without the sense of a tradition? Why, nothing at all happens, just nothing. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Winterbourne View quotes by Jeffrey Wright
#6. Too often a story is examined through biased eyes, without a sensitivity for everyone who forged it. It's seen from the point of view of the great white savior, and rarely is the perspective of the slave a part. #Quote by Jeffrey Wright
Winterbourne View quotes by Sydney Wilhelmy
#7. By the way our society lives, if you climb the tallest building in the world so you can say you've seen the highest view in the world, by the time you get to the top, there will be a taller building standing right next to you. #Quote by Sydney Wilhelmy
Winterbourne View quotes by Jo Coudert
#8. It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things. #Quote by Jo Coudert
Winterbourne View quotes by Michael Soll
#9. You see a moment from only one angle. You see in only two dimensions. You cannot see that the line is actually a circle. You've never been forced to step around a situation and view it from another perspective. You stand glued to your spot as the world turns if front of you and you assume what you see is the only. But it's not. You are one man in one place in one moment is time. You rule this space, but one quake can fill the hole. One solar flare can destroy everything that is you. #Quote by Michael Soll
Winterbourne View quotes by Robert Friedrich
#10. A fictional Dystopia is better than a fake Utopia. #Quote by Robert Friedrich
Winterbourne View quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#11. Koudelka puzzled over this attempted readjustment of his point of view, then let it bounce harmlessly off his impermeable habits of thought. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Winterbourne View quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#12. In one conspicuous case, that of royalty, the State does already select the parents on purely political grounds; and in the peerage, though the heir to a dukedom is legally free to marry a dairymaid, yet the social pressure on him to confine his choice to politically and socially eligible mates is so overwhelming that he is really no more free to marry the dairymaid than George IV was to marry Mrs Fitzherbert; and such a marriage could only occur as a result of extraordinary strength of character on the part of the dairymaid acting upon extraordinary weakness on the part of the duke. Let those who think the whole conception of intelligent breeding absurd and scandalous ask themselves why George IV was not allowed to choose his own wife whilst any tinker could marry whom he pleased? Simply because it did not matter a rap politically whom the tinker married, whereas it mattered very much whom the king married. The way in which all considerations of the king's personal rights, of claims of the heart, of the sanctity of the marriage oath, and of romantic morality crumpled up before this political need shews how negligible all these apparently irresistible prejudices are when they come into conflict with the demand for quality in our rulers. We learn the same lesson from the case of the soldier, whose marriage, when it is permitted at all, is despotically controlled with a view solely to military efficiency.
Well, nowadays it is not the king that rules, but the tinker. Dynast #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Winterbourne View quotes by Jennifer James
#13. What choices are you making in your perception of the events around you? We choose how we view our times. There is a pinch of pessimism in our culture now. Counter it with small acts of optimism. Pick up a piece of litter that isn't yours. Show some extra grace on the freeway. Give to your food bank. Smile at a child who is in your way. Help someone you know. Help someone you don't know. The accumulation of small, optimistic acts produces quality in our culture and in your life. Our culture resonates in tense times to individual acts of grace. What's your choice? #Quote by Jennifer James
Winterbourne View quotes by Brian May
#14. Every time I listen to Jeff Beck my whole view of guitar changes radically. He's way, way out, doing things you never expect. #Quote by Brian May
Winterbourne View quotes by Muriel Barbery
#15. There are times, however, when life becomes a phantom comedy. As if aroused from a dream, we watch ourselves in action and, shocked to realize how much vitality is required simply to support our primitive requirements, we wonder, bewildered, where ARt fits in. All our frenzied nudging and posturing suddenly becomes utterly insignificant; our cozy little nest is reduced to some futile barbarian custom, and our position in society, hard-won and eternally precarious, is but a crude vanity. As for our progeny, we view them now with new eyes, and we are horrified, because without the cloak of altruism, the preproductive act seems extraordinarily out of place. All that is left is sexual pleasure, but if it is relegated to a mere manifestation of primal abjection, it will fail to proportion, because a loveless session of gymnastics is not what we have struggled so hard to master.
Eternity eludes us. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Winterbourne View quotes by Angus Young
#16. With AC/DC, we've always started with rock, and we've just kept it going. The critic's view is always, 'They just made an album and it's the same as the last one.' I'll have fifteen of them, anytime. #Quote by Angus Young
Winterbourne View quotes by Jenny  Lawson
#17. The most unsettling part of the visit, however, came when the doctor casually asked if I'd ever considered having any work done, as they were having a special on Botox. Then I stabbed him in the knee with a pen. But just in my mind, because you can never find a pen when you really need one. In reality I just told him that I wasn't a fan of paying money to inject paralyzing poison into my face and that I was actually quite proud of my laugh lines, which I view as a badge that tells people I'm not an asshole. He countered that it was really the frown line between my eyebrows that he'd focus on. I pointed out that I'd gone through a lot of living to get that frowny wrinkle and I wasn't about to erase it now.
"MY HUSBAND MADE THAT LINE," I said, with a defensiveness that surprised even me. "This line represents every time I have ever argued with him about everything in the damn world. It's a line that says, 'Don't cross me or I will cut you.' It's practically a medal for time served and I EARNED IT. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Winterbourne View quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#18. General Wavell feared that the policy of strict blockade of Jibuti favoured by Generals de Gaulle and Le Gentilhomme would merely stiffen its resistance. He proposed instead making an offer to admit sufficient supplies, such as milk for children, to prevent distress, to allow any troops wishing to join the Free French to do so and to evacuate the rest to some other French colony, and to negotiate for the use of the railway for supplying his own forces. But at home we took a different view. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Winterbourne View quotes by Michelle Alexander
#19. We have avoided in recent years talking openly and honestly about race out of fear that it will alienate and polarize. In my own view, it's our refusal to deal openly and honestly with race that leads us to keep repeating these cycles of exclusion and division, and rebirthing a caste-like system that we claim we've left behind #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Winterbourne View quotes by C.S. Lewis
#20. The sense that in this universe we are treated as strangers, the longing to be acknowledged, to meet with some response, to bridge some chasm that yawns between us and reality, is part of our inconsolable secret. And surely, from this point of view, the promise of glory, in the sense described, becomes highly relevant to our deep desire. For glory means good report with God, acceptance by God, response, acknowledgment, and welcome into the heart of things. The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Winterbourne View quotes by Jonny Wilkinson
#21. My own position is so far on the obsessive side of preparation and professionalism that I fear my point of view is not going to be shared by anyone. #Quote by Jonny Wilkinson
Winterbourne View quotes by Ronald Ross
#22. The student of biology is often struck with the feeling that historians, when dealing with the rise and fall of nations, do not generally view the phenomena from a sufficiently high biological standpoint. To me, at least, they seem to attach too much importance to individual rulers and soldiers, and to particular wars, policies, religions, and customs; while at the same time they make little attempt to extract the fundamental causes of national success or failure. #Quote by Ronald Ross
Winterbourne View quotes by Ruth Perry
#23. Dear Lord, who made the face of me not all that I would have it be, not really homely, only plain, but strong and patient in the main. Yet one, a man apart, who found me fair and gave his heart. Now Lord, that I have grown more sage ... into middle age. I only ask, as face grows lines of countenance, it be described as kind; that wrinkles by my eyes will show a little humor as I go; that I may view my humble scene with glance of one content, serene, through grateful, shining eyes that see the blessings you have given me. #Quote by Ruth Perry
Winterbourne View quotes by Deepak Chopra
#24. One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Winterbourne View quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#25. It is good to be attracted out of ourselves, to be forced to take a near view of the sufferings, the privations, the efforts, the difficulties of others. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Winterbourne View quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#26. Imagine you were now dead, or had not lived before his moment. Now view the rest of your life as a bonus ... #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Winterbourne View quotes by Robert Rauschenberg
#27. I don't think there's anything really wrong with influence because I think that one can use another man's art as material either literally or just implying that they're doing that, without it representing a lack of a point of view. #Quote by Robert Rauschenberg
Winterbourne View quotes by Eric Edmeades
#28. If you became grateful, right now, for everything that ever happened in your past, how would that impact your view of the future? #Quote by Eric Edmeades
Winterbourne View quotes by J. Gresham Machen
#29. That view of the Cross, it cannot be denied, runs counter to the mind of the natural man. It is not, indeed, complicated or obscure; on the contrary it is so simple that a child can understand, and what is really obscure is the manifold modern effort to explain the Cross away in such fashion as to make it more agreeable to human pride. #Quote by J. Gresham Machen
Winterbourne View quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#30. We should always aim to read something different=not only the writers with whom we agree, but those with whom we are ready to do battle. Their point of view challenges us to examine the truth and to test their views ... and let us not comment on nor criticize writers of whom we have heard only second-hand, or third-hand without troubling to read their works for ourselves ... Don't be afraid of new ideas. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Winterbourne View quotes by Vince Vaughn
#31. I was filming a movie in London, and I drove through Ireland. It was quite beautiful, and the countryside was really remarkable. The contrast between the countryside and Ireland, and the murals there, with Northern Ireland still being a part of the United Kingdom, there's just a stark contrast in those two things. And I found that the art that came out of the conflict was really spectacular because it was about remembering either events or points of view for local neighborhoods, or the rallying cries of one side against the other. #Quote by Vince Vaughn
Winterbourne View quotes by Anonymous
#32. I let my eyes scan the map, watching it move in coordination with my gaze and zoom forward on a section whenever my eyes stilled. Setting my finger down on a section froze the map so that my eyes could freely take in everything in view at leisure. Once I let go and looked away, the map zoomed back out, resetting. #Quote by Anonymous
Winterbourne View quotes by Christine De Pizan
#33. Those who plead their cause in the absence of an opponent can invent to their heart's content, can pontificate without taking into account the opposite point of view and keep the best arguments for themselves, for aggressors are always quick to attack those who have no means of defence. #Quote by Christine De Pizan
Winterbourne View quotes by Danah Boyd
#34. Teens' use of social media is significantly shaped by race and class, geography and cultural background [boyd, danah , "An Old Fogey's Analysis of a Teenager's View on Social Media," Medium, January 12, 2015]. #Quote by Danah Boyd
Winterbourne View quotes by William Gibson
#35. If there's a movie of Neuromancer, what I really want the special effects guys to do is make you see, from Case's point of view, the little acid giggies: the little lines and trails coming off of things. #Quote by William Gibson
Winterbourne View quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#36. I smelled jasmine first-then saw stars. A sea of stars flickering beyond glowing pillars of moonstone that framed the sweeping view of endless snowcapped mountains.
"Welcome to the Night Court. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Winterbourne View quotes by Josh Lanyon
#37. It was tempting to view your family as an extension of yourself, but it was a mistake. #Quote by Josh Lanyon
Winterbourne View quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#38. With the elevator stopped between floors, my view is about a cockroach above the green linoleum, and from here at cockroach level the green corridor stretches toward the vanishing point, past half-open doors where titans and their gigantic wives drink barrels of champagne and bellow to each other wearing diamonds bigger than I feel. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Winterbourne View quotes by Stephen Gaghan
#39. Starting in '98 when I was researching 'Traffic,' I got to meet really serious people in Washington, which for a screenwriter was kind of a great gift. And I really valued these guys; I stayed in touch with them, and I find their point-of-view quite interesting. #Quote by Stephen Gaghan
Winterbourne View quotes by Helen LaKelly Hunt
#40. There is a growing interest in examining the point at which the political and the spiritual intersect. Service to others is a spiritual value, and the overt recognition of this can be part of the development of our wholeness. My hope is to add my voice to the chorus of other women who are calling for a bridge between the secular and the spiritual. Our effectiveness in building this bridge will depend on how well we connect to each other in every interaction. That means taking the time to listen to those who come from points of view that are different from our own. If we listen well, learn from one another, and find the ability to empathize with one another's experiences, I believe the split will have served us well. When a broken bone mends, it becomes stronger along the break. When we strengthen our connections to one another, we become whole. And when we are whole, we are empowered an can empower others. #Quote by Helen LaKelly Hunt
Winterbourne View quotes by Markus Zusak
#41. I climbed aboard and took it in my hand, not realizing that I would keep it and view it several thousand times over the years. I would watch the places where we intersect, and marvel at what the girl saw and how she survived. That is the best I can do- watch it fall into line with everything else I spectated during that time. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Winterbourne View quotes by Jaime Levy
#42. Take a chance and step outside. Lose some sleep and say you tried. Meet frustration face to face. A point of view creates more waves. - JOY DIVISION (1979) #Quote by Jaime Levy
Winterbourne View quotes by Victoria Moran
#43. I don't have the activist temperament. I like listening to divergent points of view and hearing people out. I like getting along. I even like being liked, although activists of any stripe should get rid of that handicap at the outset. #Quote by Victoria Moran
Winterbourne View quotes by Robin Williams
#44. Politically, I don't care what party you're from, offer a point of view and let's see what happens and really debate the issues rather than use personal attacks. Really talk about it, talk about immigration, talk about education, talk about pollution. #Quote by Robin Williams
