Never take a wife till thou hast a house (and a fire) to put her in.
We should declare war on North Vietnam. We could pave the whole country and put parking strips on it, and still be home by Christmas.
When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.
What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?
Henry David Thoreau
It's silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home by Christmas.
Who wants a stylus. You have to get em and put em away, and you lose em. Yuck. Nobody wants a stylus.
A novel is never anything, but a philosophy put into images.
We've got to put a lot of money into changing behavior.
Of my mental cycles, I devote maybe ten percent to business thinking. Business isn't that complicated. I wouldn't want to put it on my business card.
Honestly, I never really put the mic down.
It takes these very simple-minded instructions - 'Go fetch a number, add it to this number, put the result there, perceive if it's greater than this other number' - but executes them at a rate of, let's say, 1,000,000 per second. At 1,000,000 per second, the results appear to be magic.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
In giving us children, God places us in a position of both leadership and service.

When Ford sells a car, a dealer isn't allowed to take out the engine and put a different one in. When a newsstand sells the Washington Post, no one can go to the newsstand and pay them to rip out the classified section and put their own classified section in - if they could, they would do so.
I don't know if I ever feel totally great about a record when I put it out. With every record that I put out, someone has literally got to come pry it from me because when I listen to my own music, I just hear flaws in it.
The word 'racism' is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything - and demanding evidence makes you a 'racist.'
I always try to put a seed of hope into people's hearts. I'm not there to teach them doctrine necessarily, but to let them know that God is a good God, and has a plan for their lives. Hopefully, that will restore their faith, or draw them into faith.
Great grief does not of itself put an end to itself.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian.
