The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
When it looks like I may live longer than five minutes I'll drop cigarettes like a hot potato.
The teachers' unions that block school reform have done serious damage to the union brand. The public no longer views unions as their friend, much less their champion. They view them as corrupt, intransigent and more interested in protecting their political clout within the Democratic Party than protecting their members or even school children.
We are no longer happy so soon as we wish to be happier.
Walter Savage Landor
I live in sin, to kill myself I live; no longer my life my own, but sin's; my good is given to me by heaven, my evil by myself, by my free will, of which I am deprived.
When Jonathan Winters died, it was like, 'Oh, man!' I knew he was frail, but I always thought he was going to last longer. I knew him as being really funny, but at the same time, he had a dark side.
I can't tell you if the use of force in Iraq today will last five days, five weeks or five months, but it won't last any longer than that.

We live in the mind, in ideas, in fragments. We no longer drink in the wild outer music of the streets - we remember only.
The most important thing a pastor does is stand in a pulpit every Sunday and say, 'Let us worship God.' If that ceases to be the primary thing I do in terms of my energy, my imagination, and the way I structure my life, then I no longer function as a pastor.
Eugene H. Peterson
Modern technology has become a total phenomenon for civilization, the defining force of a new social order in which efficiency is no longer an option but a necessity imposed on all human activity.
Tennis was never work for me, tennis was fun. And the tougher the battle and the longer the match, the more fun I had.
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
H. G. Wells

Martin Luther King, Jr.
