Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
William Butler Yeats
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Ludwig van Beethoven

Lawrence G. Lovasik
Formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil.
J. Paul Getty
I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people's ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing. That's the only thing we see as talent. Things like determination, courage, discipline, temperament, these are also talent.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
John D. Rockefeller
A fast is not a hunger strike. Fasting submits to God's commands. A hunger strike makes God submit to our demands.
Edwin Louis Cole

Eventually they find the right time to strike out, and they will.
When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck to crush him.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Poetry should surprise by a fine excess and not by singularity, it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
Our party must continue to strike fear in the heart of the white man, our real enemy!
If you strike at, imprison, or kill us, out of our prisons or graves we will still evoke a spirit that will thwart you, and perhaps, raise a force that will destroy you! We defy you! Do your worst!
At any street corner the feeling of absurdity can strike any man in the face.
Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.
The buried talent is the sunken rock on which most lives strike and founder.
Frederick William Faber
I was a boy with one dream and one dream only: I wanted - no, strike that, I was desperate for - a room of my own. You see, in those days I shared a room with my little brother, Jesse, and it wasn't pretty. He was the Oscar to my Felix: messy, careless, and just a little bit sticky - exactly the way a kindergartner is supposed to be.

If workers are more insecure, that's very 'healthy' for the society, because if workers are insecure, they won't ask for wages, they won't go on strike, they won't call for benefits; they'll serve the masters gladly and passively. And that's optimal for corporations' economic health.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
