Quote of the Day
Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.
Honore de Balzac
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.
As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport.
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
The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Jean de La Fontaine
A closed mouth catches no flies.
Miguel de Cervantes
Time flies like an arrow - but fruit flies like a banana.
Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator.
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.
All the minor sports injuries you acquire over the years begin to multiply like flies when you get over 70.
As my Sicilian grandfather used to say, you get more flies with honey than with vinegar, right?
I had a great time investigating the pigments of different mutant fruit flies by following experimental protocols published in Scientific American, and I also remember making my own beetle collection when it was still acceptable to make such collections.
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.
I was much entertained last summer with a tame bat, which would take flies out of a person's hand.
I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be eaten by spiders and man to be devoured by sorrow.
But meanwhile time flies; it flies never to be regained.
Managing is like holding a dove in your hand. Squeeze too hard and you kill it, not hard enough and it flies away.
He who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free and nothing holds him back.
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.'
Although finding fruit flies in your wine or beer can be a bit annoying, I hope people will pause to admire the tenacity of these clever little creatures. They are really just hungry animals looking for something to eat, and have no intention of ruining your happy hour.
When you get a groove going, time flies.
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.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
