Nothing to me is unexpected. No disappointment is unexpected - whether it's movies or people or relationships. I'm always ready for the punch directly between the eyes. So I get hurt, but I never get hurt. Happens all the time.
There is a difference between listening and waiting for your turn to speak.
Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.
A good marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband.
Michel de Montaigne
I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.
We must differentiate between guilt and duty. The soldier on the front, like the common man, who does his duty everywhere, should not be held responsible for the actions of a few who also called themselves Germans.
I always have a beard between jobs. I just let it grow until they pay me to shave it. People are quite surprised it's ginger. Sometimes they ask me if dye my hair and I always say 'Wow, no!' I'm 'trans-ginger.'
What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.
Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.
I spent my childhood clad in 1970s hand-me-downs, primarily from male cousins, which mainly consisted of a selection of beige, brown and orange dungarees. That, combined with a perfectly round pudding-bowl haircut, made me look, on a good day, like a cross between Ann Widdecombe, one of the Flower Pot Men, and a monk.
The difference between the Parthenon and the World Trade Center, between a French wine glass and a German beer mug, between Bach and John Philip Sousa, between Sophocles and Shakespeare, between a bicycle and a horse, though explicable by historical moment, necessity, and destiny, is before all a difference of imagination.
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination.
The real war is not between the West and the East. The real war is between intelligent and stupid people.
We must have constantly present in our minds the difference between independence and liberty. Liberty is a right of doing whatever the laws permit, and if a citizen could do what they forbid he would no longer be possessed of liberty.
Charles de Montesquieu
The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.
There's a big difference between falling in love and being in love. There's a big difference between infatuation and falling in love.
When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them. It misdirects crucial resources and undercuts the trust needed between law enforcement and the communities they serve. It has no place in our national discourse, and no place in our nation's police departments.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.
A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past.
God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.
Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.
I should like to suggest to you that the cause of all the economic troubles is that we have an economic system which tries to maintain an equality of value between two things, which it would be better to recognise from the beginning as of unequal value.
C. S. Lewis
