Quote of the Day
Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Jean de La Fontaine
Time sometimes flies like a bird, sometimes crawls like a snail; but a man is happiest when he does not even notice whether it passes swiftly or slowly.
Life flies by, and it's easy to get lost in the blur. In adolescence, it's 'How do I fit in?' In your 20s, it's 'What do I want to do?' In your 30s, 'Is this what I'm meant to do?' I think the trick is living the questions. Not worrying so much about what's ahead but rather sitting in the grey area - being OK with where you are.
Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.
Honore de Balzac
The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.
Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator.
Time flies so quick. I remember my second year in business when Bullocks Wilshire did a whole window of my white dresses. I was so excited, I went there at night and took pictures.
Time flies never to be recalled.
Time flies like an arrow - but fruit flies like a banana.
As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport.
A guided missile corrects its trajectory as it flies, homing in, say, on the heat of a jet plane's exhaust. A great improvement on a simple ballistic shell, it still cannot discriminate particular targets. It could not zero in on a designated New York skyscraper if launched from as far away as Boston.
And I always think of life like a giant wave. You know, it rises and it crests and it flies, and it's just magnificent, and then it crashes. And for a lot of people, when it crashes, that's the end, and they go down the deep, dark hole of depression.
He who binds to himself a joy Does the winged life destroy; But he who kisses the joy as it flies Lives in eternity's sun rise.
When you get a groove going, time flies.
Imagine a country that flies into space, launches Sputniks, creates such a defense system, and it can't resolve the problem of women's pantyhose. There's no toothpaste, no soap powder, not the basic necessities of life. It was incredible and humiliating to work in such a government.
But meanwhile time flies; it flies never to be regained.
What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It's not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A closed mouth catches no flies.
Miguel de Cervantes
Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through.
Pop flies, in a sense, are just a diversion for a second baseman. Grounders are his stock trade.
Managing is like holding a dove in your hand. Squeeze too hard and you kill it, not hard enough and it flies away.
Extreme heroism springs from something that no scientific theory can fully explain; it's an illogical impulse that flies in the face of biology, psychology, actuarial statistics, and basic common sense.
Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same.
Ideas for my first experiments in human aggression came from discussions we had in a research seminar about William Golding's 'Lord of the Flies.'
John F. Kennedy
