Politics in America is like stale bread. It's so yada yada that the best among us can hardly stand it.
For an author to write as he speaks is just as reprehensible as the opposite fault, to speak as he writes; for this gives a pedantic effect to what he says, and at the same time makes him hardly intelligible.
I do have ADD and in real life, I'm all over the place and can hardly focus. If we were talking for, for more than an hour or so, I'd start drifting off... I can't sit still too long.
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
Business, you know, may bring you money, but friendship hardly ever does.
If one sticks too rigidly to one's principles, one would hardly see anybody.
We are living in 1937, and our universities, I suggest, are not half-way out of the fifteenth century. We have made hardly any changes in our conception of university organization, education, graduation, for a century - for several centuries.
H. G. Wells
There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Promise keeping is a powerful means of grace in a time when people hardly depend on each other to remember and live by their word.
Lewis B. Smedes
Prayer gives a man the opportunity of getting to know a gentleman he hardly ever meets. I do not mean his maker, but himself.
William Ralph Inge
Onstage, I am a devil. But I'm hardly a social reject.
Well, the first thing is that truth and power for me form an antithesis, an antagonism, which will hardly ever be resolved. I can define in fact, can simplify the history of human society, the evolution of human society, as a contest between power and freedom.
Ceremony leads her bigots forth, prepared to fight for shadows of no worth. While truths, on which eternal things depend, can hardly find a single friend.
There are hardly five critics in America; and several of them are asleep.
It was a very stupid thing to do, I'll admit, but I hardly didn't even know I was doing it.
J. D. Salinger
We were alone. Where, I could not say, hardly imagine. All was black, and such a dense black that, after some minutes, my eyes had not been able to discern even the faintest glimmer.
Machiavelli's teaching would hardly have stood the test of Parliamentary government, for public discussion demands at least the profession of good faith.
Adversity is the trial of principle. Without it a man hardly knows whether he is honest or not.
One hardly saves a world without ruling it.
Emile M. Cioran
There is hardly any money interest in art, and music will be there when money is gone.
There is hardly a case in which the dispute was not caused by a woman.
You can only realize change if you live simply. Once people want enormous excess, you can hardly do social change.
I hardly ever stretch the canvas before painting.
Periods of inactivity, I don't know such things. I'm consistently writing. My life is busy. It always is. There are hardly any moments for self-indulgent laziness.
I'm very friendly or whatever, but I would hardly say that I'm that cookie-cutter. I don't live in L.A. or New York. I live in Texas, and I go to hole-in-the-wall bars, so there's no paparazzi there.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
