Evolution can go to hell as far as I am concerned. What a mistake we are. We have mortally wounded this sweet life-supporting planet - the only one in the whole Milky Way - with a century of transportation whoopee.
Seasonally ploughing and harvesting crops will mash up a few moles, slice through a burrow of field mice and crush any ground-nesting bird chicks. Far more significant, however, is the creation of the field in the first place: an act that replaces entire ecosystems, along with all their animal inhabitants.
II know a little about Greek mythology. It's not that far away from the Nordic mythology.
Vampires, werewolves, fallen angels and fairies lurk in the shadows, their intentions far from honorable.
A man in debt is so far a slave.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.
Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.
H. P. Lovecraft
It might be odd for people to hear this, but honestly, you know, when you're on stage, I don't think people realize how grueling eight shows a week is. And as far as jobs go, being a Broadway actor, it's hard. It's fun, but it's hard.
Man is supposed to be the maker of his destiny. It is only partly true. He can make his destiny, only in so far as he is allowed by the Great Power.
Truth titillates the imagination far less than fiction.
Marquis de Sade
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
I will far rather see the race of man extinct than that we should become less than beasts by making the noblest of God's creation, woman, the object of our lust.
Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.
The Secretary of Hygiene or Physical Culture will be far more important in the cabinet of the President of the United States who holds office in the year 2035 than the Secretary of War.
Walking at random through the streets, we came by chance upon the Cathedral of Notre Dame. I shall long remember my first impression of the scene within. The lofty gothic ceiling arched far above my head and through the stained windows the light came but dimly - it was all still, solemn and religious.
Disasters are usually a good time to re-examine what we've done so far, what mistakes we've made, and what improvements should come next.
A BMW can't take you as far as a diploma.
Imagine - four years you could have spent travelling around Europe meeting people, or going to the Far East of Africa or India, meeting people, exchanging ideas, reading all you wanted to anyway, and instead I wasted it at Roosevelt.
The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited; he must not make himself a nuisance to other people.
John Stuart Mill
The resolution to avoid an evil is seldom framed till the evil is so far advanced as to make avoidance impossible.
Real education should educate us out of self into something far finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity.
Poetry, I feel, is a tyrannical discipline. You've got to go so far so fast in such a small space; you've got to burn away all the peripherals.
From being a little girl in the projects, going through all of the mess that I was going through, to ending up at the Inauguration for the first African-American president, I'm speechless right now because I never thought I'd - I never ever - I couldn't even see that far. Even when I ended up in the music business, I couldn't see that.
Mary J. Blige
I'm a little left of center, for sure, with Angels & Airwaves. But even when I get really weird, it's not that weird. It's not like some obscure Sonic Youth record or something. We don't take it quite that far. But what we do like are crescendos, and we do like when a song catches you off guard and it gives you the chills up and down your arms.
I've spent a lot of very happy times in Edinburgh as a result of playing virtually every festival since 1996. It's also a beautiful city in its own right, is walkable, within sight of the sea and mountains - and was too far north for the Luftwaffe to have done any damage, hence the spectacularly beautiful architecture.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy

Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized.
