Beauty is an outward gift which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused.
A widow's refusal of a lover is seldom so explicit as to exclude hope.
Every one, more or less, loves Power, yet those who most wish for it are seldom the fittest to be trusted with it.
Very seldom do we receive any support for trusting ourselves, listening to our own sense of inner truth, and expressing ourselves in a direct and honest way.
I am relatively sure, from conversations that I had with former president Bill Clinton, that George Bush seldom called upon him for advice.
I very seldom worry about other systems. I concentrate pretty fully on just making Linux the best I can.
Women were seldom given quality assignments or adequate air time.
Religion, for better or for worse, has been politicized in blatant ways that have seldom been equaled in American elections.
Progress is seldom simple; it comes with costs and casualties, even challenges about whether a change represents an advance or a retreat.
In England or America, actors do not have to cater to an image. In India, it is almost demanded of us. Very seldom do you get a film where you can walk away from your image.
Sometimes people ask, 'Does writing make you happy?' But I think that's beside the point. It makes you agitated, and continually in a state where you're off balance. You seldom feel serene or settled.
When you write a song, it may come from a personal space, but it very seldom actually represents you. It comes out of a sort of mood of melancholy, somehow. It's almost theatrical.
I very seldom read back into what I've written.
I very seldom compose anything in my head which later finds its way into text, except character names sometimes - I'm often very much inspired by things that I misunderstand.
Life is made up of constant calls to action, and we seldom have time for more than hastily contrived answers.
I very seldom compromise. I am a Capricorn.
In an ideal world, an individual's institutional power would be correlated perfectly with his or her value-add. In practice, this is seldom the case.
Something that's seldom appreciated about me is that I am in sympathy with a great deal of what Marx wrote, except that I'm on the side of the bourgeoisie.
You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.
A woman seldom writes her mind but in her postscript.
We probably wouldn't worry about what people think of us if we could know how seldom they do.
It is seldom right to say that anything is true 'according to Google.' Google is the oracle of redirection. Go there for 'hamadryad,' and it points you to Wikipedia. Or the Free Online Dictionary. Or the Official Hamadryad Web Site (it's a rock band, too, wouldn't you know).
A proof of really great art is that it is generally true - it seldom falls into the misapprehensions to which minor art is liable.
Anger is never without an argument, but seldom with a good one.
George Savile, 1st Marquess of Halifax
I have an acquired taste for language, yet it is seldom an actual focus of mine.
John F. Kennedy
