I think many people can relate to that excruciating pain of love gone wrong. I'd rather have a broken arm than a broken heart.
Rather go to bed with out dinner than to rise in debt.
I would rather be remembered by a song than by a victory.
If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
I would rather trust a woman's instinct than a man's reason.
The journey matters as much as the destination. By engaging in the moment on set, I've stopped rushing and now find pleasure in the collaborative process - the characters, the costumes - rather than worrying about the finished product.
It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody.
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy.
I would rather discover one true cause than gain the kingdom of Persia.
Religions have always stressed that compassion is not only central to religious life, it is the key to enlightenment and it the true test of spirituality. But there have always have been those who'd rather put easier goals, like doctrine conformity, in place.
I try to feed my hunger rather than my appetite.
In these dangerous times, where it seems the world is ripping apart at the seams, we can all learn how to survive from those who stare death squarely in the face every day, and we should reach out to each other and bond as a community, rather than hide from the terrors of life at the end of the millennium.
Patience doesn't mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that's unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.

I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints - the sinners are much more fun.
Rather than dividing the world between good and evil, the Left divided the world in terms of economics. Economic classes, not moral values, explained human behavior. Therefore, to cite a common example, poverty, not one's moral value system, or lack of it, caused crime.
It is only in appearance that time is a river. It is rather a vast landscape and it is the eye of the beholder that moves.
If you're actually allowing your creative part to control your writing rather than a more commercial instinct or motive, then you'll find that all sorts of interesting things will bubble up to the surface.
Chance doesn't mean meaningless randomness, but historical contingency. This happens rather than that, and that's the way that novelty, new things, come about.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved who I am not. Even if you're not accepted, at least you are still yourself.

God, who preferred the correction rather than the death of a sinner, did not desire that a homicide be punished by the exaction of another act of homicide.
You will notice that the Occupy Wall Street crowds - and the progressives who support them - focus on bringing the wealthy down to earth rather than lifting the 99 percent. They have a nearly religious belief that too much wealth is fundamentally immoral and unhealthy for society.
I can't gather around and talk about how much everybody in the room doesn't believe in God. I just don't - I don't have the energy for that, and so I...
