There's a fraudulent root element of comedy in that we say things night after night as though they are rolling effortlessly from the brain and off the tongue, when in fact they are crafted over weeks and months and years.
But I believe we must not allow feelings of defeat to take root in our hearts.
I hate painting with a broad brush, but I think the birther thing, at its root, is racist. The guy was born in Hawaii. A black guy is president. It's cool. Get over it. Just deal with it. There's nothing you could show these birther people that would shut them up.
Every duty is a charge, but the charge of oneself is the root of all others.
Lack of money is the root of all evil.
George Bernard Shaw
Confidence is at the root of so many attractive qualities, a sense of humor, a sense of style, a willingness to be who you are no matter what anyone else might think or say and it's true, I do have a certain fondness for women that have dark hair.
Perhaps the old monks were right when they tried to root love out; perhaps the poets are right when they try to water it. It is a blood-red flower, with the color of sin; but there is always the scent of a god about it.
Our heart glows, and secret unrest gnaws at the root of our being. Dealing with the unconscious has become a question of life for us.
Every legend, moreover, contains its residuum of truth, and the root function of language is to control the universe by describing it.
James A. Baldwin

At the root of the shy temperament is a deep fear of social judgment, one so severe it can sometimes be crippling.

I experienced firsthand what it means to be poor, what it means to go hungry, and that, I think, may be the reason, the root cause of why I'm able to work so hard, even these days.
I've torn the word 'pride' out from my dictionary because I prefer not to use it. To me, pride is the thing that is at the root of most of the wars in the world. I've seen it while growing up in Ireland. Whether it's religious, national or personal pride, people often tend to fight much more easily over things that are attached to their pride.
I think that everything I do tends to root for the underdog.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
