Speak properly, and in as few words as you can, but always plainly; for the end of speech is not ostentation, but to be understood.
Newspapers are the second hand of history. This hand, however, is usually not only of inferior metal to the other hands, it also seldom works properly.
If you lose emotion, and you gain it back, you realise that hate and love are very important to distribute properly. So I'm not going to waste any kind of emotion on things that aren't related to me.
Marriage is like wine. It is not be properly judged until the second glass.
Douglas William Jerrold
To become properly acquainted with a truth, we must first have disbelieved it, and disputed against it.
Love exercised while duty is neglected will make children headstrong, willful, perverse, selfish, and disobedient. If stern duty is left to stand alone without love to soften and win, it will have a similar result. Duty and love must be blended in order that children may be properly disciplined.
Ellen G. White
The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a 'sleeping dictionary.' Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I'm still trying to remember where I picked up the other two.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Philosophy is properly home-sickness; the wish to be everywhere at home.
When a nation is over-reliant on one or two commodities like oil or precious minerals, corrupt government ministers and their dodgy associates hoard profits and taxes instead of properly allocating them to schools and hospitals.
You see people who have been very heavy in their life who have taken that body, trimmed it down, firmed it up through discipline, exercise and being able to say no. Eating properly, that all comes into it.
Properly, we should read for power. Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand.
I don't care about the rules. In fact, if I don't break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I'm not doing my job properly.
I can tell you I didn't feel good when I could not articulate properly. Getting my GED was important and I want other women to feel that.
Mary J. Blige
No business can succeed in any great degree without being properly organized.
James Cash Penney
LOVE: A word properly applied to our delight in particular kinds of food; sometimes metaphorically spoken of the favorite objects of all our appetites.
Brunch, for me, is an extended breakfast that should be enjoyed whenever you have time properly to engage in cooking and eating.
I have a big problem with piped music. I like either silence or to listen to it properly.
Who would want a face that hasn't seen or lived properly, hasn't got any wrinkles that come with age, experience and laughter? Not me, anyway.
I can't play anywhere near like I used to, and I was a hot drummer. It doesn't bother me, because frankly, if you get to that point where you can't hold a drumstick properly, there are many other things in life which are far more important, like cutting a loaf of bread or a piece of cheese.
However great his outward conformity, the immigrant is not Americanized unless his interests and affections have become deeply rooted here. And we properly demand of the immigrant even more than this. He must be brought into complete harmony with our ideals and aspirations and cooperate with us for their attainment.
Louis D. Brandeis
Romanticism has never been properly judged. Who was there to judge it? The critics!
It's just that... working on 'Green Lantern,' I saw how difficult it is to make that concept palatable, and how confused it all can be when you don't really know exactly where you're going with it or you don't really know how to access that world properly - that world comic book fans have been accessing for decades and falling in love with.
If properly dried and trimmed, New York-style pizza could be used to make a box for Chicago-style pizza.
The physical sensation of gliding with the wind in your face is exhilarating. That automatic activity of pedalling, when you have to be awake but not think too much, allows you to let subconscious thoughts bubble up, and things seem to just sort themselves out. And the adrenaline wakes you up if you weren't properly alert.
I'm not joking around when I've said occasionally, trying to learn how to play a D chord properly has been a very big thing for me.
C. S. Lewis
