Tell me who admires and loves you, and I will tell you who you are.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you're lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind. Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.
Power is like being a lady... if you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be.
John Henrik Clarke
The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You're in a conversation and everybody's agreeing with what you're saying - even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don't want to hear.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.
H. L. Mencken
If you're married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife 'I love her' the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and every opportunity? And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ is that it is the most important thing in my life.
And what's more I've got no need for anyone to tell me how to do it. I am not interested. You act how you want to and leave me alone to do my own thing.
When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!' Then get busy and find out how to do it.
There's nothing better than having a baby. I've always loved children. I used to work summers at the YMCA and be in charge of, like, 30 preschool kids. I knew that when I had a child, I'd be overwhelmed, and it's true... I can't tell you how much my attitude has changed since we've got Frances. Holding my baby is the best drug in the world.
People change and forget to tell each other.
Whenever things go a bit sour in a job I'm doing, I always tell myself, 'You can do better than this.'
If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results.
George S. Patton
If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty - not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live.
I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders.
My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.
You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!
Technology gives us power, but it does not and cannot tell us how to use that power. Thanks to technology, we can instantly communicate across the world, but it still doesn't help us know what to say.
If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera.
I tell a lot of fart and poop jokes. I can't help it. I have no filter, and it just comes out.
You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.
Tell me, why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognise our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a Devil.
James A. Garfield
We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining - they just shine.
Dwight L. Moody
On Sunday morning, I'm not nervous... I can't wait to tell what God wants me to say.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
