Madeleine L’Engle
198
My very best friend died in a car accident when I was 16 years old. That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure. Suddenly, you realize tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, ‘Today is what I have.’
199
History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them.
200

202

203
There should not be a question of legal or illegal immigration. People came and immigrated to this country from the time of the Indians. No one’s illegal. They should just be able to come.
204
Years of drought and famine come and years of flood and famine come, and the climate is not changed with dance, libation or prayer.
John Wesley Powell
205
We all stand on the shoulders of our ancestors. We’re in a relay race, relying on the financial and human capital of our parents and grandparents. Blacks were shackled for the early part of that relay race, and although many of the fetters have come off, whites have developed a huge lead.
206
Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness.
207
I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
208
Comedians like to see people smile. With acting, I love giving people a feeling, an emotion. I like to give people a feeling. When they come away from my scene, I want them to think.
209
Everybody has a different journey. Everybody has a different path, and you don’t really know what to expect. All you know is to just keep plugging away, and you hope something will come through and something will happen.

Epicurus
212
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.

Ian Fleming
215
The most important thing about Spaceship Earth – an instruction book didn’t come with it.
216
What you want in a mentor is someone who truly cares for you and who will look after your interests and not just their own. When you do come across the right person to mentor you, start by showing them that the time they spend with you is worthwhile.

224
In Korean, the word ‘future’ is made up of two parts. The first part means ‘not,’ and the second means ‘to come.’ In that sense, ‘future’ means something that will not come. This is to say the future is now, and our now is us living our future.
225
Nothing can come of nothing.
226
Anybody is able to doubt me. I say, ‘Come with your criticism to polish the diamond of the truth.’ People need to wake up to their own power. Everybody has this nature.

229
I keep a hotel room in my town, although I have a large house. And I go there at about 5:30 in the morning, and I start working. And I don’t allow anybody to come in that room. I work on yellow pads and with ballpoint pens. I keep a Bible, a thesaurus, a dictionary, and a bottle of sherry. I stay there until midday.
230
To win is not important. To be successful is not even important. How to plan and prepare is crucial. When you plan very well and prepare very well, then success can come on the way. Then winning can come on your way.
231
The Tao teaches us to let go of things. Use the 80/20 rule. If you take all your clothes, you’ll find out that you only wear 20 percent of them. Take what you have and don’t use and circulate it. Give stuff to people who truly need it. After all, we come into this world with nothing; we leave this world with nothing.
232
An opera begins long before the curtain goes up and ends long after it has come down. It starts in my imagination, it becomes my life, and it stays part of my life long after I’ve left the opera house.
Maria Callas
233
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

239

241
I have to ask Allah‘s forgiveness and not get angry, because they come to me out of love, and it’s not fitting that I should turn to them in hatred.
242
People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn’t they? People feared coal, they feared gas-powered engines… There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear. But with time, people will come to accept their silicon masters.
243
I come from a family of teasers myself. My grandfather was from Liverpool, and he had a dry sense of humor, and he would tease us terribly. My brother Beau was so skilled in his teasing that he could get a rise out of me by simply pointing at me.
244
The fun of sitting around Pangong Lake with 40 guys around a fireplace, having a glass of winestaying in one camp together… that’s an experience. Waking up at 5 in the morning, watching the sun come up. You don’t do these things in Bombay.
Gautam Singhania

One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.
250
Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not ‘yours,’ not personal. They are conditions of the human mind. They come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you.
251
Always be original. Never duplicate what you’ve seen another actor do. Be true to the character that you’ve been given, and the rest will come easy.
Lee Tamahori
252
People come into your lives who you have a good time with, and time goes by and you still have a good time with them and you do stupid stuff with them. To me, that’s life.
253
There are many people in the world who really don’t understand-or say they don’t-what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin!
254
If you come to fame not understanding who you are, it will define who you are.
255
War will never cease until babies begin to come into the world with larger cerebrums and smaller adrenal glands.
256
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
257
Happiness doesn’t come from being rich, nor merely from being successful in your career, nor by self-indulgence. One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy so that you can be useful and so you can enjoy life when you are a man.
258
God expects but one thing of you, and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made and let God be God in you.
259
I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault – they watched the foot come towards their face.
260
If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.
261
And it’s a human need to be told stories. The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.
262
I’ve worked very hard for everything I have and nothing has come easy.

265
I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.
266
The strength people need to proceed along the path of human development can come only from the spiritual worlds.
267
Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.
268
I’ve been waiting over 40 years to come to Cyprus, and it has not disappointed – the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Crossroads of Civilization, and, I might add, a genuine strategic partner to the United States of America.
269
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. ‘Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after you.
270
Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
271
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
272
My very best friend died in a car accident when I was 16 years old. That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure. Suddenly, you realize tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, ‘Today is what I have.’
273
My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected on to a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.
Robert Bresson
274
I’d say it’s been my biggest problem all my life… it’s money. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true.

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
276
I love life. I wish I could live another 500 years, truly. There is so much to do. I don’t feel bitter or angry or disappointed. If anything, I am very grateful for where I come from. I have absolutely no regrets.
Waris Dirie
277
Exceed your customer’s expectations. If you do, they’ll come back over and over. Give them what they want – and a little more.

280
I come from Toledo, Ohio, a town that has been hurt badly by the shift of the automobile business towards Japan. And yet I remember how the car workers lived in the neighborhood that I grew up in. My father was a car salesman, and I remember how we lived. I remember how modestly we lived.
281
In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.
282
We learn from each other. We learn from others’ mistakes, from their experience, their wisdom. It makes it easier for us to come to better decisions in our own lives.
283
The secret is not to give up hope. It’s very hard not to because if you’re really doing something worthwhile I think you will be pushed to the brink of hopelessness before you come through the other side.
284
What difference is there between us, save a restless dream that follows my soul but fears to come near you?
285
The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective – people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.
286
Self-reflection is so healthy. Journaling works for me – when I record the details of what I’m going through, whether it’s a relationship issue or negative thoughts, I can look back and see how far I’ve come. It makes me proud to see my progress and how I got through a bad situation.
287
Your Highest Self is not just an idea that sounds lofty and spiritual. It is a way of being. It is the very first principle that you must come to understand and embrace as you move toward attracting to you that which you want and need for this parenthesis in eternity that you know as your life.
288
Most recently, I learned another hobby: baking. It’s so much fun to mix all the ingredients and to see the cake come out nice. It’s so rewarding when the cake comes out great and tastes great.
289
Presidents come and go, but the Supreme Court goes on forever.
290
I have never written that there is a threat of fascism in America. I always considered the idea overwrought. But now I believe there really is such a threat – and it will come draped not in an American flag, but in the name of tolerance and health.
291
When we are born we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.
292
Winners, I am convinced, imagine their dreams first. They want it with all their heart and expect it to come true. There is, I believe, no other way to live.
293
We are come for your good, for all your goods.
King George II
294
Whether you come from heaven or hell, what does it matter, O Beauty!
295
I hate all the old pictures of me before 2010 – and they are always the first ones to come up. That’s why I don’t Google myself, man.
296
You have no choices about how you lose, but you do have a choice about how you come back and prepare to win again.
Pat Riley
297
I hate wars and violence but if they come then I don’t see why we women should just wave our men a proud goodbye and then knit them balaclavas.
Nancy Wake
298
A girl phoned me the other day and said… ‘Come on over, there’s nobody home.’ I went over. Nobody was home.
299
The year 1999, seventh month, from the sky will come a great King of Terror. To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols, before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
300
What goes up must come down.
301
The child inside of you knows how to take things as they come, how to deal most effectively and happily with everything and everyone it encounters on this planet. If you can recapture that childlike essence of your being, you can stay ‘forever young at heart.’
302
We are too much accustomed to attribute to a single cause that which is the product of several, and the majority of our controversies come from that.
303
Your outlook upon life, your estimate of yourself, your estimate of your value are largely colored by your environment. Your whole career will be modified, shaped, molded by your surroundings, by the character of the people with whom you come in contact every day.
304
Christmas morning, I’m going to open presents with my kids. I’m going to take pictures of them opening the presents. Then I’m going to come to the Staples Center and get ready to work.
305
If I’ve learned anything from TJ, it’s that life is a fine balance of holding on, letting go, and never looking back unless it’s to admire how far you’ve come.
306
I’m a man at the end of the day and I come from the streets, the trenches, I came from nothing, water and cornflakes.
307
It’s so different when you get a second chance to come back out and do your thing – you’re more humble, you appreciate it more, you know what not to do this second time around.
308
These wretched babies don’t come until they are ready.
309
Sometimes I live in Paris for a couple of months, then I have a job some place, and then I come back to New York. I guess my base is New York-ish, ’cause my family is here. But my husband’s family is all in Paris, so we try to spend a lot of time there, also. Especially now that we have Rose.
310
Islam expect every Muslim to do this duty, and if we realise our responsibility time will come soon when we shall justify ourselves worthy of a glorious past.
311
Trends carry on forever, until they stop. I want to be around after things come to a standstill. As a result, I tend to be pretty conservative.
Johann Rupert
312
Before Hurricane Katrina, I always felt like I could come back home. And home was a real place, and also it had this mythical weight for me. Because of the way that Hurricane Katrina ripped everything away, it cast that idea in doubt.
313
My mother is a strong woman. Her strength comes from being tested by life’s unpredictability. It comes from soldiering on for her children, even when she might rather have given up. I know it hasn’t always come easily, but I also know it’s her greatest gift.
314
Confidence doesn’t come out of nowhere. It’s a result of something… hours and days and weeks and years of constant work and dedication.
Roger Staubach
315
I got into being vegan because I was simply looking to benefit from being more compassionate. I have since come to learn that it is an animal-based diet that is responsible for the overwhelming majority of cases of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, and all kinds of other problems.
316
Good food is good food. It doesn’t have to come with pretense.
317
When the heroes go off the stage, the clowns come on.
318
When you come up with a theory, you fall in love with the beauty the simplicity and elegance of it. But then you have to get a sheet of paper and pencil and crack out all the details. Hundreds and hundreds of pages. Because you have to prove it.
319
‘Redneck’ has been terribly abused as a term. Where I come from, a redneck was a farmer who worked the fields all day and got his neck sunburned. People made fun of them.
320
I’m a blunt person, not mean-spirited. I come from a place of love, but I’m interested in being real.
321
As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such a twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slightlest we become unwitting victims of darkness.
William O. Douglas
322
I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden.
323
Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.
324
What a blessing that God allows a life to come through your body, and then allows you to place that body in a body bag and take it out. I had to say that there’s a magnificent something that God has for me to do, to give me that level of completion. That level of experience. It’s unspeakable.
325
When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans – an avian flu pandemic.
326
Some people come into our life as a blessing, while others come into our life as a lesson, so love them for who they are instead of judging them for who they are not.
327
Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one’s soul, when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds love and brotherhood.
328
The pursuit of an extreme Brexit cannot come at the cost of peace in Northern Ireland.
329
One of the things that has to be faced is the process of waiting to change the system, how much we have got to do to find out who we are, where we have come from and where we are going.
Ella Baker
330
The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.
331
Poor people cannot rely on the government to come to help you in times of need. You have to get your education. Then nobody can control your destiny.
332
I always knew I had a voice and I’ve always known I could sing, but I was too shy to let it come out. I think it’s the hardest thing to do, to sing in front of people. When I finally let go and did it, I realized it’s what I’m most talented at and what I love to do the most.
333
Flowers heal me. Tulips make me happy. I keep myself surrounded by them as soon as they start coming to the island from Canada, and after that when they come from the fields in La Connor, not far from where I live.
Rebecca Wells
334
We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility.
335
I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief… For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
336
If you have good food, people will come to your restaurant.
337
Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
338
I know this may come as a shock to most of you, but I’ve decided to quit acting. I will not be auditioning for anything anymore, and if I get offered something like a role in a movie or a commercial or something, I will graciously turn it down. It’s been great, but its just not for me anymore.
339
I believe that good things come to those who work.
Wilt Chamberlain
340
‘The time has come,’ the walrus said, ‘to talk of many things: of shoes and ships – and sealing wax – of cabbages and kings.’
341
You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even going and coming.
Emily Carr
342
First scenes are super-important to me. I’ll spend months and months pacing and climbing the walls trying to come up with the first scene. I drive for hours on the freeway.
343
The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.
344
If the people don’t want to come out to the ballpark, nobody’s going to stop them.
345
You can’t stop technology or science, and it is snowballing quicker than ever. Something’s got to come to a head. How? Who knows? But it will.
346
All of my misfortunes come from having thought too well of my fellows.
347
Everyone likes flattery; and when you come to Royalty you should lay it on with a trowel.
348
If you’re too methodical, too fearful, you’re not going to win. But the clever thing is to make the calculation correctly about where and when to go over the top. You’ve got to know when to push it and when to come back.
Colin McRae
349
Nothing else matters so much as long as you can come home and be with your family.
350
What humility does for one is it reminds us that there are people before me. I have already been paid for. And what I need to do is prepare myself so that I can pay for someone else who has yet to come but who may be here and needs me.
351
True love doesn’t come to you it has to be inside you.
352
The time has come for all evangelists to practice full financial disclosure. The world is watching how we walk and how we talk. We must have the highest standards of morality, ethics and integrity if we are to continue to have influence.
353
If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.
David Livingstone
354
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, but trailing clouds of glory do we come.
355
The way people come into your life when you need them, it’s wonderful and it happens in so many ways. It’s like having an angel. Somebody comes along and helps you get right.
356
I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Colour is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.
Kim Hunter
357
In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.
358
Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
359
Success doesn’t come overnight, especially for women.
360
If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.

Cinco de Mayo has come to represent a celebration of the contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to America.
363
To catch a piece of life on camera and make it come alive, add layers to it and deliver a product that is wholesome is really exciting to me.
364
Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics.
365
I’ve always looked for the perfect life to step into. I’ve taken all the paths to get where I wanted. But no matter where I go, I still come home.
366
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.
367
When I’m inspired, I get excited because I can’t wait to see what I’ll come up with next.
368
The pictures I make come from every blink of my lashes.
369
Great things come out of being hungry and cold. Once you’re pampered, you get lazy.
370
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
371
The painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.
Jackson Pollock
372
If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem.
373
But as an entrepreneur you have to feel like you can jump out of an aeroplane because you’re confident that you’ll catch a bird flying by. It’s an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go splat because the bird doesn’t come by, but a few times it does.
374
Any time you got nothing to do – and lots of time to do it – come on up.
375
It’s always inspiring when people all come together and be strong as a group. This is why I feel so strongly to put the message to people that we need to stand together in tough times.
376
Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.
377
Faith is the highest passion in a human being. Many in every generation may not come that far, but none comes further.
378
One whom the infernal gods of Hannibal will cause to be reborn, terror of mankind; never more horror nor worse days in the past than will come to the Romans through Babel.
379
I did a few movies, but the word ‘star’… I cannot compare to a star like Clint Eastwood. I used to call Clint ‘Larry Dickman’ when he would come to my show; then, he started using the name when he would go under cover in a ‘Dirty Harry‘ movie. That’s why he’s a movie star… he’s so creative.
380
Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright‘s pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
381
Life is like a wheel. Sooner or later, it always come around to where you started again.
382
If you want to cut your own throat, don’t come to me for a bandage.
383

I come from a family of business people, but I had the idea I wanted to become an artist.
Dick Bruna
385
Everybody, my friend, everybody lives for something better to come. That’s why we want to be considerate of every man – Who knows what’s in him, why he was born and what he can do?
Maxim Gorky
386
Somehow, we have come to the erroneous belief that we are all but flesh, blood, and bones, and that’s all. So we direct our values to material things.
387
Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!
388
Death means change our clothes. Clothes become old, then time to come change. So this body become old, and then time come, take young body.
389
Today is your own. Tomorrow perchance may never come.
390
War is big business. It’s a lot of money going to and fro, and unfortunately a lot of angst, and a lot of fear, and a lot of doubt. And eventually a lot of wonderful people, like soldiers, like men and women that are out there trying to do the best they can, they come back being wounded on many levels.
391
I am not handsome, but when women hear me play, they come crawling to my feet.
Niccolo Paganini
392
All things must come to the soul from its roots, from where it is planted.
393
Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time.
394
Never be discouraged. If I were sunk in the lowest pits of Nova Scotia, with the Rocky Mountains piled on me, I would hang on, exercise faith, and keep up good courage, and I would come out on top.
395
The way to be successful in the software world is to come up with breakthrough software, and so whether it’s Microsoft Office or Windows, its pushing that forward. New ideas, surprising the marketplace, so good engineering and good business are one in the same.
396
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are.
397
To be able to walk out the door when you come home from a job and wander into the garden to do a bit of watering gives you time to be creative in your mind.
398
Animals have a much better attitude to life and death than we do. They know when their time has come. We are the ones that suffer when they pass, but it’s a healing kind of grief that enables us to deal with other griefs that are not so easy to grab hold of.
399
America is just the country that how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society.
Peter Kropotkin
400
All existing things are really one. We regard those that are beautiful and rare as valuable, and those that are ugly as foul and rotten The foul and rotten may come to be transformed into what is rare and valuable, and the rare and valuable into what is foul and rotten.
Zhuangzi
401
Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
402
There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.
403
You cannot define a person on just one thing. You can’t just forget all these wonderful and good things that a person has done because one thing didn’t come off the way you thought it should come off.
404
Where you come from now is much less important than where you’re going. More and more of us are rooted in the future or the present tense as much as in the past. And home, we know, is not just the place where you happen to be born. It’s the place where you become yourself.
405
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
406
Election days come and go. But the struggle of the people to create a government which represents all of us and not just the one percent – a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice – that struggle continues.
407
I wake up. If I have a rehearsal, I go do that, and when I come back to the hotel, I sit down and turn on the laptop, ’cause I’ve got nothing to do without that!
408
We don’t even know what our desire is. We ask other people to tell us our desires. We would like our desires to come from our deepest selves, our personal depths – but if it did, it would not be desire. Desire is always for something we feel we lack.
409
Your employees come first. And if you treat your employees right, guess what? Your customers come back, and that makes your shareholders happy. Start with employees and the rest follows from that.
410
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
411
Writing music is very, very clinical. You just sit down at a piano, map out a theme and when all the technicalities come together, out pours the music.
412
Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.
Epicurus
413
This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands.
414
Do all you can to make your dreams come true.

You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
418
I think holidays come in all sizes – sometimes you just need to relax.
419
Greater than the tread of mighty armies is an idea whose time has come.
420
It’s always good to remember where you come from and celebrate it. To remember where you come from is part of where you’re going.
Anthony Burgess
421
The biggest lessons I’ve learned in life have probably come from a bad situation, from an angry situation, even if I wasn’t the one who was angry.
422
Secularism‘ is the most misused word in the country. Its misuse should come to an end.
423
Nobody knows what you have in you until you’ve done it, so I just keep pushing those boundaries, and I figure it will all come out in the wash.
424
We have come to the edge of the abyss and now it is time for a bold step forward. There is a political view that the tougher you are, the more credible you are.
Ed Balls
425
Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.
426
The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car… a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little.
Ben Sweetland
427
A new era doesn’t come from nothing. New thoughts, values and methods will be established after overcoming various hurdles on the way.
428
I always say: ‘Share your happiness with the world, give other people that happiness and let it come back,’ but some things make me question it. I don’t know if I want some people to know that I am happy. I think a lot of people want to take it away from you, and that’s really scary.
429
Animals praise a good day, a good hunt. They praise rain if they’re thirsty. That’s prayer. They don’t live an unconscious life, they simply have no language to talk about these things. But they are grateful for the good things that come along.
430
Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
431
If you haven‘t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
432
No, I don’t believe in hard work. If something is hard, leave it. Let it come to you. Let it happen.
433
All credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth come only from the senses.
434
There is only one difference between a long life and a good dinner: that, in the dinner, the sweets come last.
435
Now it’s like, I’ll go to Starbucks, or I’ll go to the mall or anywhere, and lots of people will recognize me, and I’m like, ‘Oh, wow, this is actually a thing now; this is happening.’ It can get a little bit crazy at times, but I love meeting people, and people shouldn’t feel scared to come up to me and say ‘Hi.’
436
Leadership is something you earn, something you’re chosen for. You can’t come in yelling, ‘I’m your leader!’ If it happens, it’s because the other guys respect you.
Ben Roethlisberger
437
Tears come from the heart and not from the brain.
438
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
439
Wisdom cannot come by railroad or automobile or aeroplane, or be hurried up by telegraph or telephone.
440
You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
441
Trust is hard to come by. That’s why my circle is small and tight. I’m kind of funny about making new friends.
442
I have found out one thing and that is, if you have an idea, and it is a good idea, if you only stick to it you will come out all right.
Cecil Rhodes
443
I’m a strong man, and usually I get over hurts and it makes me stronger when I come back.
Dusty Baker
444
Do you know what it means to come home at night to a woman who’ll give you a little love, a little affection, a little tenderness? It means you’re in the wrong house, that’s what it means.
445
If Jesus was a Jew, how come he has a Mexican first name?
446
Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you’re juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you’re walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.
447
The great powers of the world may have done wonders in giving the world an industrial look, but the great gift still has to come from Africa – giving the world a more human face.
448
Time will pass and seasons will come and go.
Roy Bean
449
There is only one thing that a man really wants to do, all his life; and that is, to find his way to his God, his Morning Star, salute his fellow man, and enjoy the woman who has come the long way with him.
450
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
451
If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.
452
Eagles come in all shapes and sizes, but you will recognize them chiefly by their attitudes.
E. F. Schumacher
453
Well, I believe that the depth of your struggle can determine the height of your success. I was inspired to come out of everything I’ve been through and end up in a place where I never thought that I would be.
454
That is what a good manager does – you study and think and discuss, and you come up with a model of playing.
455
People come to the stadium to forget their lives for 90 minutes, and it’s up to us to give them satisfaction; to get them out of their chairs and to fall asleep with stars in their eyes.
456
Things go up and down. If you can survive the down, it will come back.
John Denver
457
Out of Ireland have we come, great hatred, little room, maimed us at the start. I carry from my mother’s womb a fanatic heart.
458
In Missouri, where I come from, we don’t talk about what we do – we just do it. If we talk about it, it’s seen as bragging.
459
The true worth of a man is not to be found in man himself, but in the colours and textures that come alive in others.
460
I trained for the drums for about two weeks, and then rocking out in front of an entire crowd was sort of like a dream come true. And now, Guitar Hero, I can’t do that anymore. It’s nothing like doing it on stage. I kinda wish I had a fake band, and we could go on tour.
Devon Bostick
461
I’ve never taken drugs. My drug, I suppose, is drink. I never drink before I sing, but I do make up for it when I come off!
462
He who has faith has… an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well – even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.
B. C. Forbes
463
Humour is like violence. They both come to you unexpectedly, and the more unpredictable they both are, the better it gets.
Takeshi Kitano
464
You take wins where you can get them because they’re not easy to come by. You win at the major-league level, and you’ve done something.
465
We did not all come over on the same ship, but we are all in the same boat.
466
Jews outside Israel live in permanent contradiction. I think they should come home.
467
Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.
468
Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.
469
Clouds and darkness surround us, yet Heaven is just, and the day of triumph will surely come, when justice and truth will be vindicated.
Mary Todd Lincoln
470
Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable.
471
The melodies I come up with, they’re not normal.
Future
472
Some calamities – the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 – have come like summer lightning, as bolts from the blue. The looming crisis of America’s Ponzi entitlement structure is different. Driven by the demographics of an aging population, its causes, timing and scope are known.
473
Good fiction is made of that which is real, and reality is difficult to come by.
Ralph Ellison
474
As life goes on, we accrue more and more loseable objects. Providence dictates that objects that are too large to lose, such as houses, always come with tiny little keys, specially designed to give you the slip.
475
Don’t worry about being famous or making money; the most important thing is being the best. You have to become a master of your craft, and everything else will come.
476
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop.
477
I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.
478
You never get away from that thing in your hometown that it has over you. You don’t outgrow where you come from.
479
If you trust in yourself and fight for it until the end, your dreams will come true.
480
The world runs on individuals pursuing their self interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a, from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way.
481
Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.
482
No, I’m not a vegetarian. I do eat that way. I actually eat vegan quite a lot. I feel better when I eat that way, and I think there’s been a lot of proof that’s come up over the last however many years, that you can’t deny, I don’t think, that meat or dairy aren’t all that good for us.
483
The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.
484
The living room is where we come to think, to slow down the world for a second.
485
A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow. Don’t wait for an inspired ending to come to mind. Work your way to the ending and see what comes up.
486
Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.
487
A lot of legends, a lot of people, have come before me. But this is my time.
488
Ice ages have come and gone. Coral reefs have persisted.
489
You know, at the end of the day, all you can do is work at it, perfect your craft, come in with a great attitude and just respect everybody in the building.
490
What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.
491
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
492
I was chef to the French Presidents between ’56 and ’59, finished with de Gaulle, and during de Gaulle I remember serving Eisenhower, Nehru, Tito, Macmillan; those were the heads of state at the time. I never saw anyone. No one would ever, ever, ever come to the kitchen. You couldn’t even see them.
493
When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.
494
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
495
Sometimes negative news does come out, but it is often exaggerated and manipulated to spread scandal. Journalists sometimes risk becoming ill from coprophilia and thus fomenting coprophagia: which is a sin that taints all men and women, that is, the tendency to focus on the negative rather than the positive aspects.
496
I love producing! It’s so much fun to start with a blank canvas and create the picture you want to create and see it all come together.
497
I tend to be so lost in the work that I don’t notice the weather. My partner will come home and say, ‘Beautiful day, wasn’t it?’ and I’ll say, ‘Was it?’ as I won’t have noticed the real world at all.
498
Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
499
When I was a child I thought I saw an angel. It had wings and kinda looked like my sister. I opened the door so some light could come into the room, and it sort of faded away. My mother said it was probably my Guardian Angel.
500
Nobody should come to the movies unless he believes in heroes.
501
If I had to come back in life, I’d come back as a dolphin… they’re always smiling; they’re always playing.
Nathan Phillips
502
In the business world, everyone is paid in two coins: cash and experience. Take the experience first; the cash will come later.
Harold S. Geneen
503
It doesn’t matter if you come from the inner city. People who fail in life are people who find lots of excuses. It’s never too late for a person to recognize that they have potential in themselves.
504
With awareness come responsibility and choice.
505
I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
506
Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends – your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.
507
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
508
We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life.
509
You will be judged in years to come by how you responded to genocide on your watch.
510
Do all you can to make your dreams come true.
511
Most people when they come to you for advice, come to have their own opinions strengthened, not corrected.
512
Whence come I and whither go I? That is the great unfathomable question, the same for every one of us. Science has no answer to it.
Max Planck
513
Our job as gay people was to come out, to be visible – to live in the truth, as I say – to get out of the lie.
514
Freedom does not come without a price. We may sometimes take for granted the many liberties we enjoy in America, but they have all been earned through the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many of the members of our armed forces.
Charlie Dent
515
Once we start to act, hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come.
516
People have entire relationships via text message now, but I am not partial to texting. I need context, nuance and the warmth and tone that can only come from a human voice.
517
Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.
518
Meditation is to dive all the way within, beyond thought, to the source of thought and pure consciousness. It enlarges the container, every time you transcend. When you come out, you come out refreshed, filled with energy and enthusiasm for life.
519
It seems to me that more and more we’ve come to expect less and less from each other, and I think that should change.
520
I have recommended in my writings the study of civic virtues, without which there is no redemption. I have written likewise (and repeat my words) that reforms, to be beneficial, must come from above, that those which come from below are irregularly gained and uncertain.
521
I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.
522
I have come to the conclusion that the most important element in human life is faith.
523
The love I was getting from the gym, I wasn’t getting at home. That actually glued me to the gym. It made me always work harder and want to come back.
524
The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us.
525
I come bearing an olive branch in one hand, and the freedom fighter‘s gun in the other. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.
526
To other countries, I may go as a tourist, but to India, I come as a pilgrim.
527
Once the state has been founded, there can no longer be any heroes. They come on the scene only in uncivilized conditions.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
528
Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life – a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are.
529
I distrust Great Men. They produce a desert of uniformity around them and often a pool of blood too, and I always feel a little man’s pleasure when they come a cropper.
530
I have accomplished my childhood dream: to be in show business. Everybody should be so lucky to have their dreams come true. I’ve been truly blessed.
531
If you don’t live it, it won’t come out your horn.
Charlie Parker
532
Gliders, sail planes, they’re wonderful flying machines. It’s the closest you can come to being a bird.
533
Positive feelings come from being honest about yourself and accepting your personality, and physical characteristics, warts and all; and, from belonging to a family that accepts you without question.
534
My weaknesses… I wish I could come up with something. I’d probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they’re the same thing.
535
You will learn more from your failures than your successes – so embrace those mistakes, as difficult as that sounds, and grow from them. When a project is successful, you’re never really sure why, because so many elements come into play. However, when you fail, you always know why. That is how you learn and grow.
536
Along the way, let’s never forget that once we were children and that we were all playing together without distinction of skin color, society level, or where people come from. Adults need to remember to play and to be more childlike in our behavior. We’ve forgotten what that childlike experience was like.
537
There is no refutation of Darwinian evolution in existence. If a refutation ever were to come about, it would come from a scientist, and not an idiot.
538
You got to have a strong mind if you fall back. When you fall back, they going to count you out. So you got to have a strong mind and know your worth. When you come back, you’ve got to be different and even more better.
539
Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.
540
Here’s how I think of my money – as soldiers – I send them out to war everyday. I want them to take prisoners and come home, so there’s more of them.
541
Nostalgia, the vice of the aged. We watch so many old movies our memories come in monochrome.
542
It always feels good to come back here. I love New York… it’s just nice to see a lot of familiar faces.
Latrell Sprewell
543
Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this Earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come.
544
You gotta have a dream. If you don’t have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true?
Oscar Hammerstein II
545
Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
546
Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.
547
I don’t have any elaborate uniforms; I come to the ring in a T-shirt, a pair of sneakers and some shorts.
548
The soldiers that didn’t come back were the heroes. It’s a roll of the dice. If a bullet has your name on it, you’re a hero. If you hear a bullet go by, you’re a survivor.
549
Good buildings come from good people, and all problems are solved by good design.
550
Come dress yourself in love, let the journey begin.
Francesca da Rimini
551
I am mean; I’m nasty at times. I don’t feel like talking to people at times. When I am in a bad mood and have had a really awful day, don’t come in my face because I am not tolerant and I am not a goddess; I can’t handle it after a point. I am going to get up, and I am going to scream, and I am going to say bad things to you.
552
If you look at the field of robotics today, you can say robots have been in the deepest oceans, they’ve been to Mars, you know? They’ve been all these places, but they’re just now starting to come into your living room. Your living room is the final frontier for robots.
Cynthia Breazeal
553
Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation, that He exists.
554
Money is the probably the most successful story ever told. It has no objective value… but then you have these master storytellers: the big bankers, the finance ministers… and they come, and they tell a very convincing story.
555
For better or worse, zoos are how most people come to know big or exotic animals. Few will ever see wild penguins sledding downhill to sea on their bellies, giant pandas holding bamboo lollipops in China or tree porcupines in the Canadian Rockies, balled up like giant pine cones.
556
Sometimes you just need a spark, and then boom, boom, boom, now the bats come alive.
557
Horror is like a serpent; always shedding its skin, always changing. And it will always come back. It can’t be hidden away like the guilty secrets we try to keep in our subconscious.
558
Everything that goes up must come down. But there comes a time when not everything that’s down can come up.
559
Collaboration is like carbonation for fresh ideas. Working together bubbles up ideas you would not have come up with solo, which gets you further faster.
560
Just because Pluto or comets aren’t as big as Jupiter doesn’t mean they are not scientifically important – indeed, just the reverse is often true. Sometimes, great things come in small packages.
561
Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon… must inevitably come to pass!
Paul J. Meyer
562
It’s part of my Special Forces training. You’re taught to come up with a solutions, not look for excuses.
563
The Church is not an automobile showroom – a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.
564
This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.
565
Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
566
Say what you will about the ten commandments, you must always come back to the pleasant fact that there are only ten of them.
567
Never underestimate the intelligence of the audience; make good programmes, and they will come.
Armando Iannucci

I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.

580
I worked in a Starbucks that wasn’t very popular – before the big coffee boom in London. My boss didn’t take kindly to my incessant sitting. I was like, ‘Look, I’ve dusted everything, the stockroom is all figured out… I would rather sit now so I have the energy when a customer does come in.’
581
I could be baking a cake and I’ll do it a certain way. If you’re just a creative person, it’ll come out no matter what.

I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose.

Marla Gibbs
596
The male is always the pawn in a romantic comedy. Come together, break up, go chase her, get her, roll credits. That’s what happens in all of them.

Whether it is a tsunami, or whether it is a hurricane, whether it’s an earthquake – when we see these great fatal and natural acts, men and women of every ethnic persuasion come together and they just want to help.
601
Good things will come from self-expression.
602
Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, ‘No, this not real cheating.’ So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that’s what we find, is that we’re basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.

Andrei Platonov
611

612
My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.
613
Our higher education system is one of the things that makes America exceptional. There’s no place else that has the assets we do when it comes to higher education. People from all over the world aspire to come here and study here. And that is a good thing.
614
Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don’t collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don’t really mean anything.
615
People come in and out of our lives, and the true test of friendship is whether you can pick back up right where you left off the last time you saw each other.
Lisa See
616

623
Over time, I have come to believe that ‘brave‘ does not mean what we think it does. It does not mean ‘being afraid and doing it anyway.’ Nope. Brave means listening to the still small voice inside and doing as it says. Regardless of what the rest of the world is saying.
624
With me, I come in the ring and start thinking right away. My thought process is just to put a guy down. I’m like a technician and learn to break it all down – from head to toe.

Leo Durocher
630
I’m actually no longer a strict vegan. I don’t hang out in the cheese section – I don’t even eat cheese. I don’t drink milk. But every once in a while I’ll have an egg. I’m going to eat eggs that come out of my next-door neighbor’s farm, that’s just the way it is.
631
We have self-centered minds which get us into plenty of trouble. If we do not come to understand the error in the way we think, our self-awareness, which is our greatest blessing, is also our downfall.
Joko Beck
632
On two occasions I have been asked, ‘Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?’ I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
633
Archaeology holds all the keys to understanding who we are and where we come from.
634
The most important decision I’ve made in business? The choices of people I have around me. When I first started I brought everybody with me, my homies from the neighborhood, criminals. I just said, ‘Come on everybody, we made it.’ Then I had to realize we didn’t make it. I made it.
635
Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things.

648
Stem cell research is the key to developing cures for degenerative conditions like Parkinson‘s and motor neuron disease from which I and many others suffer. The fact that the cells may come from embryos is not an objection, because the embryos are going to die anyway.
649
When we look back on all the perils through which we have passed and at the mighty foes that we have laid low and all the dark and deadly designs that we have frustrated, why should we fear for our future? We have come safely through the worst.
650
The devil ain’t got no power over me. The devil come, and me shake hands with the devil. Devil have his part to play. Devil’s a good friend, too… because when you don’t know him, that’s the time he can mosh you down.

People always come up to me and say that my smoking is bothering them… Well, it’s killing me!
652
Politics I supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
653
We’re nondenominational. I come from Northern Ireland, and we’ve had religious wars for years. I didn’t want to create an illusion that my God is better than your God. So our show is a spiritual show, not a religious show.
654
You don’t have to go looking for love when it’s where you come from.
Werner Erhard
655

657
I have come to believe that this is a mighty continent which was hitherto unknown.
658

670
The Lord may not come when you want Him, but he’s always going to be there on time.

672
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.
673

679
Usually I start with a beat, I start making a beat, and my producer side is making the beat. And on a good day, my rapper side will jump in and start the writing processmaybe come up with a hook or start a verse. Sometimes it just happens like that. A song like ‘Lights Please’ happens like that.
680
You have to come to your closed doors before you get to your open doors… What if you knew you had to go through 32 closed doors before you got to your open door? Well, then you’d come to closed door number eight and you’d think, ‘Great, I got another one out of the way’… Keep moving forward.
681
Life is full of surprises: new opportunities come up; that’s part of the fun – the adventure of life. The thing is, chaos doesn’t allow us to enjoy the adventure.
