place

When a writer knows home in his heart, his heart must remain subtly apart from it. He must always be a stranger to the place he loves, and its people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I am your anointed Queen. I will never be by violence constrained to do anything. I thank God I am endued with such qualities that if I were turned out of the Realm in my petticoat I were able to live in any place in Christendom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nor do I hear in my imagination the parts successively, I hear them all at once. What a delight this is! All this inventing, this producing, takes place in a pleasing, lively dream.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reason itself is fallible, and this fallibility must find a place in our logic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He that is discontented in one place will seldom be content in another.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hollywood is a place where people from Iowa mistake each other for stars.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Washington is no place for a good actor. The competition from bad actors is too great.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Murder is unique in that it abolishes the party it injures, so that society has to take the place of the victim and on his behalf demand atonement or grant forgiveness; it is the one crime in which society has a direct interest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Precisely because we do not communicate by singing, a song can be out of place but not out of character; it is just as credible that a stupid person should sing beautifully as that a clever person should do so.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is neither good or evil, but only a place for good and evil.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whole visible universe is but a storehouse of images and signs to which the imagination will give a relative place and value; it is a sort of pasture which the imagination must digest and transform.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy. In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am convinced that the world is not a mere bog in which men and woman trample themselves in the mire and die. Something magnificent is taking place here amid the cruelties and tragedies, and the supreme challenge to intelligence is that of making the noblest and best in our curious heritage prevail.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A place for everything, and everything in its place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Compassion has no place in the natural order of the world which operates on the basis of necessity. Compassion opposes this order and is therefore best thought of as being in some way supernatural.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One can say of language that it is potentially the only human home, the only dwelling place that cannot be hostile to man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good place to visit, but a poor place to stay.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Firm, faithful, and devoted, full of energy and zeal, and truth, he labors for his race; he clears their painful way to improvement; he hews down like a giant the prejudices of creed and caste that encumber it. He may be stern; he may be exacting; he may be ambitious yet; but his is the sternness of the warrior Greatheart, who guards his pilgrim convoy from the onslaught of Apollyon. His is the exaction of the apostle, who speaks but for Christ, when he says, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. His is the ambition of the high master-spirit, which aims to fill a place in the first rank of those who are redeemed from the earth -- who stand without fault before the throne of God, who share the last mighty victories of the Lamb, who are called, and chosen, and faithful.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never the time and the place and the loved one all together!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In deep sadness there is no place for sentimentality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is in books. The true university of these days is a collection of books.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thought once awakened does not again slumber; unfolds itself into a System of Thought; grows, in man after man, generation after generation, --till its full stature is reached, and such System of Thought can grow no farther, but must give place to another.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Outer space is no place for a person of breeding.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The sick man must follow his illness to the place where it is treated. He is set aside in one of the technical and secret zones (hospitals, prisons, refuse dumps) which relieve the living of everything that might hinder the chain of production and consumption, and which repair and select what can be sent back up to the surface of progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Treat your friends as you do your pictures, and place them in their best light.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

A writer is in danger of allowing his talent to dull who lets more than a year go past without finding himself in his rightful place of composition, the small single unluxurious retreat of the twentieth century, the hotel bedroom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have wrestled with death. It is the most unexciting contest you can imagine. It takes place in an impalpable grayness, with nothing underfoot, with nothing around, without spectators, without clamor, without glory, without the great desire of victory, without the great fear of defeat.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To a teacher of languages there comes a time when the world is but a place of many words and man appears a mere talking animal not much more wonderful than a parrot.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I is a militant social tendency, working to hold and enlarge its place in the general current of tendencies. So far as it can it waxes, as all life does. To think of it as apart from society is a palpable absurdity of which no one could be guilty who really saw it as a fact of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The idea that seeing life means going from place to place and doing a great variety of obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A university should be a place of light, of liberty, and of learning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation. Its success will be measured by the nature of his vision, what he has done to equip himself, and how well he has performed along the line of its development.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The advantage of time and place in all practical actions is half a victory; which being lost is irrecoverable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everything requires time. It is the only truly universal condition. All work takes place in time and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable, and necessary resource. Nothing else, perhaps, distinguishes effective executives as much as their tender loving care of time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A dead atheist is someone who is all dressed up with no place to go.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Art is not necessary at all. All that is necessary to make this world a better place to live in is to love --to love as Christ loved, as Buddha loved.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change is an easy panacea. It takes character to stay in one place and be happy there.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man could not live if he were entirely impervious to sadness. Many sorrows can be endured only by being embraced, and the pleasure taken in them naturally has a somewhat melancholy character. So, melancholy is morbid only when it occupies too much place in life; but it is equally morbid for it to be wholly excluded from life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are celebrating the feast of the Eternal Birth which God the Father has borne and never ceases to bear in all eternity.... But if it takes not place in me, what avails it? Everything lies in this, that it should take place in me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Here lies an Atheist: All Dressed Up and No Place to Go.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is change; all yields its place and goes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
