Beware of the man who rises to power from one suspender.
Edgar Lee Masters

The disparity between a restaurant's price and food quality rises in direct proportion to the size of the pepper mill.
Bryan Q. Miller
You have to open your mind. I like the ability to express myself in a deep way. It's the closest music to our humanity - it's like a folk music that rises up out of a culture.
Everyone rises to their level of incompetence.
Laurence J. Peter
An architect is given a program, budget, place, and schedule. Sometimes the end product rises to art - or at least people call it that.
He stands erect by bending over the fallen. He rises by lifting others.
As society advances the standard of poverty rises.
Agave nectar is a good substitute for refined sugars. It has a relatively low glycaemic index, which means it doesn't cause quick rises in blood sugar levels. It also has a nice, mild flavour.

I don't know if it's irrational, and I would never say this before, but I think I'm a little bit agoraphobic when I'm in huge crowds of people. I mean, it's claustrophobic, probably - small spaces and large groups of people, anxiety rises for me.
