We made the buttons on the screen look so good you'll want to lick them.
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher
We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives... inside ourselves.
I did not direct my life. I didn't design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That's what life is.
B. F. Skinner
We're making the same mistakes we made 1,000 years ago. So they must be the right ones. So relax.
A great man is made up of qualities that meet or make great occasions.
James Russell Lowell
Before the Civil War, Canada was at the top of the underground railroad. If you made it into Canada, you were safe unless someone came and hauled you back. That was also true during the Vietnam War for draft resisters.
I too have my own demons, and I have struggled. I've made my own mistakes, and I'm not proud of them.
I'm the only man in the world with a marriage licence made out to whom it may concern.
My ace in the hole as a human being used to be my capacity for remembering birthdays. I worked at it. Whenever I made a new friend, I made a point of finding out his or her birthday early on, and I would record it in my Filofax calendar.
I went to college on a classical piano scholarship. My grandmother made me practice one full hour a day. Every day. Man. I thought all she wanted was for me not to have any fun. Next thing you know, you have a career in music. Now, not everybody's going to go on and be Mozart or Michael Jackson. But music makes you smarter.
I had a very simple, unremarkable and happy life. And I grew up in a very small town. And so my life was made up of, you know, in the morning going to the river to fetch water - no tap water, and no electricity - and, you know, bathing in the river, and then going to school, and playing soccer afterwards.
The most important decision I've made in business? The choices of people I have around me. When I first started I brought everybody with me, my homies from the neighborhood, criminals. I just said, 'Come on everybody, we made it.' Then I had to realize we didn't make it. I made it.
Logic has made me hated in the world.
In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider's web. It shows that the truth sticks inside.
Sometimes it's okay to give yourself a pat on the back and say, 'That was cool. That made me feel good.'
Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.
Otto von Bismarck
I wasn't trying to be an outlaw writer. I never heard of that term; somebody else made it up. But we were all outside the law: Kerouac, Miller, Burroughs, Ginsberg, Kesey; I didn't have a gauge as to who was the worst outlaw. I just recognized allies: my people.
Hunter S. Thompson
Everything about me is a contradiction, and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There's a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them.
Just really, really believe in what you're trying to do. Don't let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.
My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them.
The world is made up for the most part of morons and natural tyrants, sure of themselves, strong in their own opinions, never doubting anything.
Marriage is like a game of chess except the board is flowing water, the pieces are made of smoke and no move you make will have any effect on the outcome.
Don't ask me who's influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he's digested, and I've been reading all my life.
Charles de Gaulle
I have made it a rule of my life to trust a man long after other people gave him up, but I don't see how I can ever trust any human being again.
Ulysses S. Grant
The day you think there is no improvements to be made is a sad one for any player.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
