His imagination conceived and bore - worlds; but nothing in these worlds became alive until he discovered its true and living name. The name was the breath of life; and, sooner or later, he invariably found it.
Algernon H. Blackwood
Shyness is invariably a suppression of something. It's almost a fear of what you're capable of.
You look at any culture, and prohibition has invariably been an unmitigated failure. It is just idiotic to criminalise any substance, I think.
For me, writing, drawing, and political activism are three separate pursuits; each has its own intensity. I happen to be especially attuned to and engaged with the society in which I live. Both my writing and my drawing are invariably mixed up with politics, whether I want them to be or not.
Secessionists, whether in Scotland, Catalonia, Quebec or anywhere else, invariably assume that a person must either be Scottish or British, Catalan or Spanish, Quebecois or Canadian. What about those who feel they are both?
At every turn, when humanity is asked the question, 'Do you want temporary economic gain or long-term environmental loss, which one do you prefer,' we invariably choose the money.
Knowledge is invariably a matter of degree: you cannot put your finger upon even the simplest datum and say this we know.
T. S. Eliot
I didn't have the worst childhood, but I didn't have the best, and when you grow up like that, you have certain limitations invariably stuck inside you. Slipknot was a way to work it out.
A new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he's in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.
I am invariably late for appointments - sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
It is unfair to suppose that one party has invariably acted rightly, and that the other is responsible for every wrong that has been committed.
Nelson A. Miles
You often see politicians who try to put on a different persona; they think they should be more jolly or serious. Invariably, the persona they choose is worse than their own.
Innumerable confusions and a feeling of despair invariably emerge in periods of great technological and cultural transition.
But the trouble is that when you drink it, you invariably meet other people drinking it.
Discord or jealousy inhibits the ability of the Holy Ghost to teach us and inhibits our ability to receive light and truth. And the feelings of disappointment that invariably follow are the seeds of greater discord and faultfinding among those who expected a learning experience that did not come.
Henry B. Eyring
Fear invariably and universally induces disengagement, and disengagement is negative division of labor.
The trouble with telling a good story is that it invariably reminds the other fellow of a dull one.
Capitalism invariably boils down to barter between two willing parties, neither of whom uses force to work with the other.
Many men think they're playboys, but they invariably land wide of the mark. Surrounding yourself with champagne, fast friends, and paid escorts is the very definition of the word 'loser.'
Gang members have invariably grown up in broken, chaotic homes, often experiencing domestic violence; they have truanted from school and many have been formally excluded; and they live in neighbourhoods where worklessness, addiction and crime are rife.
Iain Duncan Smith
Propaganda invariably serves the long-term interests of some elite.
I have often talked with angels on this subject, and they have invariably declared that in heaven they are unable to divide the Divine into three, because they know and perceive that the Divine is One and this One is in the Lord.
Literature throws us many great heroes. Real life invariably outdoes them.
I think it will be found that experience, the true source and foundation of all knowledge, invariably confirms its truth.
It's quite ironic I suppose, it's that thing about being in a group when you all start out as friends and then invariably end up hating each other. So I just thought they needed telling really, in case they were labouring under the apprehension that they were still friends.
Incompetents invariably make trouble for people other than themselves.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Image of the Moment
Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness, but it is greatness.
George Bernard Shaw
