play

To play safe, I prefer to accept only one type of power: the power of art over trash, the triumph of magic over the brute.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I worked very hard. I felt I could play the game. The only thing that could stop me was myself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What we play is life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is two kinds of music the good and bad. I play the good kind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Who can map out the various forces at play in one soul? Man is a great depth, O Lord. The hairs of his head are easier by far to count than his feeling, the movements of his heart.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cowardice and courage are never without a measure of affectation. Nor is love. Feelings are never true. They play with their mirrors.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If there is a species which is more maltreated than children, then it must be their toys, which they handle in an incredibly off-hand manner. Toys are thus the end point in that long chain in which all the conditions of despotic high-handedness are in play which enchain beings one to another, from one species to another --cruel divinities to their sacrificial victims, from masters to slaves, from adults to children, and from children to their objects.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Should we have stayed at home and thought of here? Where should we be today? Is it right to be watching strangers in a play in this strangest of theatres?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are like ignorant shepherds living on a site where great civilizations once flourished. The shepherds play with the fragments that pop up to the surface, having no notion of the beautiful structures of which they were once a part.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Just because Fate doesnt deal you the right cards, it doesnt mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Even an attorney of moderate talent can postpone doomsday year after year, for the system of appeals that pervades American jurisprudence amounts to a legalistic wheel of fortune, a game of chance, somewhat fixed in the favor of the criminal, that the participants play interminably.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Free will and determinism are like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you is determinism. The way you play your hand is free will.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Grammar is a piano I play by ear. All I know about grammar is its power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For a mother the project of raising a boy is the most fulfilling project she can hope for. She can watch him, as a child, play the games she was not allowed to play; she can invest in him her ideas, aspirations, ambitions, and values -- or whatever she has left of them; she can watch her son, who came from her flesh and whose life was sustained by her work and devotion, embody her in the world. So while the project of raising a boy is fraught with ambivalence and leads inevitably to bitterness, it is the only project that allows a woman to be -- to be through her son, to live through her son.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
God does not play dice with the universe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The words of language, as they are written or spoken, do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thought. The physical entities which seem to serve as elements in thought are certain signs and more or less clear images.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When the number of factors coming into play in a phenomenological complex is too large scientific method in most cases fails.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of what use, however, is a general certainty that an insect will not walk with his head hindmost, when what you need to know is the play of inward stimulus that sends him hither and thither in a network of possible paths?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whatever games are played with us, we must play no games with ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Commerce is a game of skill which everyone cannot play and few can play well.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I can see only one safe rule for the historian: that he should recognize in the development of human destinies the play of the contingent and the unforeseen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We grew up founding our dreams on the infinite promise of American advertising. I still believe that one can learn to play the piano by mail and that mud will give you a perfect complexion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Animals are stylized characters in a kind of old saga -- stylized because even the most acute of them have little leeway as they play out their parts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I play [golf] with friends sometimes, but there are never friendly games.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind -- not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement -- but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Despots play their part in the works of thinkers. Fettered words are terrible words. The writer doubles and trebles the power of his writing when a ruler imposes silence on the people. Something emerges from that enforced silence, a mysterious fullness which filters through and becomes steely in the thought. Repression in history leads to conciseness in the historian, and the rocklike hardness of much celebrated prose is due to the tempering of the tyrant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A Judge may be a farmer; but he is not to geld his own pigs. A Judge may play a little at cards for his own amusement; but he is not to play at marbles, or chuck farthing in the Piazza.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Blessed are the people whose leaders can look destiny in the eye without flinching but also without attempting to play God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Children play soldier. That makes sense. But why do soldiers play children?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is the result of our emotions -- love, antipathy, charity, or malice -- and what part is predetermined by the constant power play among individuals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you play bridge badly you make your partner suffer, but if you play poker badly you make everybody happy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Begin to imagine what the desirable outcome would be like. Go over these mental pictures and delineate details and refinements. Play them over and over to yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is essential to our well-being, and to our lives, that we play and enjoy life. Every single day do something that makes your heart sing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My conception of the audience is of a public each member of which is carrying about with him what he thinks is an anxiety, or a hope, or a preoccupation which is his alone and isolates him from mankind; and in this respect at least the function of a play is to reveal him to himself so that he may touch others by virtue of the revelation of his mutuality with them. If only for this reason I regard the theater as a serious business, one that makes or should make man more human, which is to say, less alone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The life of a creator is not the only life nor perhaps the most interesting which a man leads. There is a time for play and a time for work, a time for creation and a time for lying fallow. And there is a time, glorious too in its own way, when one scarcely exists, when one is a complete void. I mean -- when boredom seems the very stuff of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What call thou solitude? Is not the earth with various living creatures, and the air replenished, and all these at thy command to come and play before thee?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In my opinion, the most fruitful and natural play of the mind is in conversation. I find it sweeter than any other action in life; and if I were forced to choose, I think I would rather lose my sight than my hearing and voice. The study of books is a drowsy and feeble exercise which does not warm you up.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To me, we must learn to spell the word RESPECT. We must respect the rights and properties of our fellowman. And then learn to play the game of life, as well as the game of athletics, according to the rules of society. If you can take that and put it into practice in the community in which you live, then, to me you have won the greatest championship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You must play boldly to win.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rule: Never perform card tricks for the people you play poker with.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who have free seats at a play hiss first.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
