In theory one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed. So it is with Time in one's life.
I detest 'Jingle Bells,' 'White Christmas,' 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,' and the obscene spending bonanza that nowadays seems to occupy not just December, but November and much of October, too.
It almost seems that nobody can hate America as much as native Americans. America needs new immigrants to love and cherish it.
Experience seems to most of us to lead to conclusions, but empiricism has sworn never to draw them.
There is a kind of elevation which does not depend on fortune; it is a certain air which distinguishes us, and seems to destine us for great things; it is a price which we imperceptibly set upon ourselves.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
I am certain no one sets out to be cruel, but our treatment of the elderly ill seems to have no philosophy to it. As a society, we should establish whether we have a policy of life at any cost.
My friends tease me about the fact that if someone seems bad or shady or like they have a secret, I find them incredibly interesting.
It seems that fighting is a game where everybody is the loser.
Zora Neale Hurston
It is comforting to reflect that the disproportion of things in the world seems to be only arithmetical.

James M. Barrie
Personal identity seems like it's just such an American archetype, from Holly Golightly re-inventing herself in 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' to Jay Gatsby in 'The Great Gatsby.' It seems like the sort of archetypal American issue. If you're given the freedom to be anything, or be anyone, what do you do with it?
To have a great man for a friend seems pleasant to those who have never tried it; those who have, fear it.
If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don't actually live longer; it just seems longer.

William J. Clinton

Lyndon B. Johnson
The proclamation of the saving love of God comes before moral and religious imperatives. Today sometimes it seems that the opposite order is prevailing.
To think, I have had more than 60 years of hard struggle for a little liberty, and then to die without it seems so cruel.
Susan B. Anthony
The happy man is not he who seems thus to others, but who seems thus to himself.
It seems sensible to me that we should look to the medical profession, that over the centuries has helped us to live longer and healthier lives, to help us die peacefully among our loved ones in our own home without a long stay in God's waiting room.
John F. Kennedy
