As far as playing, I didn't care who guarded me - red, yellow, black. I just didn't want a white guy guarding me, because it's disrespect to my game.
Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one.
I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders.
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
How far away the stars seem, and how far is our first kiss, and ah, how old my heart.
William Butler Yeats
God's plan for enlarging His kingdom is so simple - one person telling another about the Savior. Yet we're busy and full of excuses. Just remember, someone's eternal destiny is at stake. The joy you'll have when you meet that person in heaven will far exceed any discomfort you felt in sharing the gospel.
Americans have so far put up with inequality because they felt they could change their status. They didn't mind others being rich, as long as they had a path to move up as well. The American Dream is all about social mobility in a sense - the idea that anyone can make it.
In terms of my marriage, you know, falling in love with my husband was by far the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Never trust a husband too far, nor a bachelor too near.
Everyone with a cell phone thinks they're a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they're a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what's far out and what's reality. And they have no dedication to truth.
I was forced to live far beyond my years when just a child, now I have reversed the order and I intend to remain young indefinitely.
As far as playing jazz, no other art form, other than conversation, can give the satisfaction of spontaneous interaction.
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.
I intend to live forever. So far, so good.
The most painful thing about mathematics is how far away you are from being able to use it after you have learned it.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.
As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.
Hunter S. Thompson
The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake.
Honesty and integrity are by far the most important assets of an entrepreneur.
Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.
Chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest, living fantastic lives, never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment.
Nothing is impossible in this world. Firm determination, it is said, can move heaven and earth. Things appear far beyond one's power, because one cannot set his heart on any arduous project due to want of strong will.
It's far better to shoot a good picture than a good-looking picture.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
