Transportation is the center of the world! It is the glue of our daily lives. When it goes well, we don't see it. When it goes wrong, it negatively colors our day, makes us feel angry and impotent, curtails our possibilities.
I think that being happy makes the biggest impact on your physical appearance.
I believe there's an inner power that makes winners or losers. And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts.
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Marilyn vos Savant
I like the word 'indolence'. It makes my laziness seem classy.
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.
Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas.
The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.
The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand.
Money is not the only answer, but it makes a difference.
We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.
A good boss makes his men realize they have more ability than they think they have so that they consistently do better work than they thought they could.

I think kids want the same thing from a book that adults want - a fast-paced story, characters worth caring about, humor, surprises, and mystery. A good book always keeps you asking questions, and makes you keep turning pages so you can find out the answers.
I don't like food that's too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I'd buy a painting.

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.
We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans - because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings.

The best liar is he who makes the smallest amount of lying go the longest way.

Hunter S. Thompson
I have learned to live each day as it comes, and not to borrow trouble by dreading tomorrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes cowards of us.
The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary.
J. K. Rowling
The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.
One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn't have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see.
I'm not perfect; no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. I think you try to learn from those mistakes.
