What life half gives a man, posterity gives entirely.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20 are no longer true at 40 - and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't been discovered when he was 20?
Arthur C. Clarke
In November 2008, the day of the presidential election, Israeli military forces invaded Gaza and killed half a dozen Hamas militants. Well, that was followed by a missile exchange for a couple of weeks in both directions.
To flatter and follow others, without being flattered and followed in turn, is but a state of half enjoyment.
There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear. Half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable.
Christian Nestell Bovee
To preach more than half an hour, a man should be an angel himself or have angels for hearers.
When I was younger, I could do something useful just by being free for half a day, but now I need five days to get the world I've left out of my head and ten days or a fortnight not talking to anyone to hold what I need to hold inside my head.
Do not make best friends with a melancholy sad soul. They always are heavily loaded, and you must bear half.
Our willingness to acknowledge that we only see half the picture creates the conditions that make us more attractive to others. The more sincerely we acknowledge our need for their different insights and perspectives, the more they will be magnetized to join us.
Margaret J. Wheatley
It is easier to keep half a dozen lovers guessing than to keep one lover after he has stopped guessing.
Big companies are like marching bands. Even if half the band is playing random notes, it still sounds kind of like music. The concealment of failure is built into them.
Who overcomes by force, hath overcome but half his foe.
With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.
Lope de Vega
Now I meditate twice a day for half an hour. In meditation, I can let go of everything. I'm not Hugh Jackman. I'm not a dad. I'm not a husband. I'm just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.
My whole damn family was nice. I don't think I've imagined it. It's true. Maybe it has to do with being brought up as Christian Scientists. Half of my relatives were Readers or Practitioners in the church.
Women hold up more than half the sky and represent much of the world's unrealized potential. They are the educators. They raise the children. They hold families together and increasingly drive economies. They are natural leaders. We need their full engagement... in government, business and civil society.
If I ever completely lost my nervousness I would be frightened half to death.
If a man has talent and can't use it, he's failed. If he uses only half of it, he has partly failed. If he uses the whole of it, he has succeeded, and won a satisfaction and triumph few men ever know.
About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs.
Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.
Nam June Paik
Among doctors in general, I think more than half support what I'm doing.
A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time.
Around me I saw women overworked and underpaid, doing men's work at half men's wages, not because their work was inferior, but because they were women.
Anna Howard Shaw
Harry Potter to me is a bore. His talent arrives as a gift; he's chosen. Who can identify with that? But Hermione - she's working harder than anyone, she's half outsider, right? Half Muggle. She shouldn't be there at all. It's so unfair that Harry's the star of the books, given how hard she worked to get her powers.
Half a million women die each year around the world in pregnancy. It's not biology that kills them so much as neglect.
Nicholas D. Kristof
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
