I have had an experience which might perhaps be described as being shot down. At the same time, I call shot down only when one falls down. Today I got into trouble but I escaped with a whole skin.
Manfred von Richthofen
Even if one tree falls down it wouldn't affect the entire forest.
Bathtub falls and police officers kill more Americans than terrorism, yet we've been asked to sacrifice our most sacred rights for fear of falling victim to it.
Loss and possession, death and life are one, There falls no shadow where there shines no sun.
I hope somebody falls in love with me - other than my fiancee. But that's what you want. As a player you want a team that really wants you; head coach, GM, owner, everybody that really wants you in their place and the players believe in you. I'm looking forward to making somebody fall in love with me.
Robert Griffin III
France is the country where the money falls apart and you can't tear the toilet paper.
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Being on a boat that's moving through the water, it's so clear. Everything falls into place in terms of what's important and what's not.
When the curtain falls, the best thing an actor can do is to go away.
Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
For some days, people thought that India was shaking. But there are always tremors when a great tree falls.
The highest service that men may attain to on earth is to preach the word of God. This service falls peculiarly to priests, and therefore, God more directly demands it of them.
It's Niagara Falls. It's one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world. Who wouldn't want to walk across it?
The price of every thing rises and falls from time to time and place to place; and with every such change the purchasing power of money changes so far as that thing goes.
Some things I think are very conservative, or very liberal. I think when someone falls into one category for everything, I'm very suspicious. It doesn't make sense to me that you'd have the same solution to every issue.
Louis C. K.
Like the rest of the genetic lottery, beauty is unfair. Everyone falls short of perfection, but some are luckier than others. Real confidence requires self-knowledge, which includes recognizing one's shortcomings as well as one's strengths.
From 1936 on, I have taken more falls than any other 20 comedians put together. From the time I was 21, I've taken them on everything from clay courts to cement to wood floors, coming off pianos, going out a two-story window, landing on Dean, falling into the rough. You do that and you're gonna have problems.
All trembling, I reached the Falls of Niagara, and oh, what a scene! My blood shudders still, although I am not a coward, at the grandeur of the Creator's power; and I gazed motionless on this new display of the irresistible force of one of His elements.
John James Audubon

This is the pain pacemaker. I've got a battery under my skin. From that battery are two electrodes that go into the spine where they cut bone away to accommodate it. Now I put on the power here. If I have the pain, the stimulator starts. It's tingling, like when your foot falls asleep, you know?
I think luck falls on not just the brave but also the ones who believe they belong there.
A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.
I think that if you shake the tree, you ought to be around when the fruit falls to pick it up.
Growing up in Niagara Falls, Ontario, I took classes as a young girl and became very serious about ballet, and also performed with a local company, although it wasn't a professional company.
