Quote of the Day
- Page 2
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.
People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me - like food or water.
Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas A. Edison
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not.
James Russell Lowell
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
My husband and I are best of friends first and foremost. We fight like cats and dogs, but never stay mad for long. I was lucky to find him, he is in every way, my soulmate.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
Life is like a roller coaster, live it, be happy, enjoy life.
I love women, but I feel like you can't trust some of them. Some of them are liars, you know? Like I was in the park and I met this girl, she was cute and she had a dog. And I went up to her, we started talking. She told me her dog's name. Then I said, 'Does he bite?' She said, 'No.' And I said, 'Oh yeah? Then how does he eat?' Liar.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
