In utter loneliness a writer tries to explain the inexplicable.
To me, spirituality means 'no matter what.' One stays on the path, one commits to love, one does ones work; one follows one's dream; one shares, tries not to judge, no matter what.
One of the greatest moments in anybody's developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is.
Norman Vincent Peale
Each age tries to form its own conception of the past. Each age writes the history of the past anew with reference to the conditions uppermost in its own time.
Frederick Jackson Turner
One does nothing who tries to console a despondent person with word. A friend is one who aids with deeds at a critical time when deeds are called for.
Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great.
The average bright young man who is drafted hates the whole business because an army always tries to eliminate the individual differences in men.
I do not believe in political movements. I believe in personal movement, that movement of the soul when a man who looks at himself is so ashamed that he tries to make some sort of change - within himself, not on the outside.
Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.
J. C. Watts
The difference between memoir and autobiography, as far as I see it, is that a memoir is there primarily to tell one particular story, whereas an autobiography tries to be a full account of a life.
A man that is born falls into a dream like a man who falls into the sea. If he tries to climb out into the air as inexperienced people endeavor to do, he drowns.
Unfortunately, in collective bargaining one party or the other too often tries to gain an advantage - a bargain, like buying something in a store for less than it is worth.
Charles E. Wilson
I imagine 'Daily Grace' as, like, your awkward older sister who tries to give you advice.
Every time I make a new game, I put all of my effort completely into that game. It's like putting all your effort into a new child that's being born. Once the project is done, I can step back and look at it objectively, which is when I can see a lot of flaws. That's when I start to make a new game that tries to fix some of those flaws.
I'm not one of those people who writes a biography or tries to figure out what kind of ice cream the character liked when he was 10.
When someone takes their existing business and tries to transform it into something else - they fail. In technology that is often the case. Look at Kodak: it was the dominant imaging company in the world. They did fabulously during the great depression, but then wiped out the shareholders because of technological change.
God created the world; the laws of nature were created by God. True science tries to find out what God put in the world. The trouble is where scientists speculate about theology and they don't know what they're talking about because they weren't there. They can't speculate about the origins of life because they weren't there.
I'm the type of person who tries to save the world.
Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either.
The future is an opaque mirror. Anyone who tries to look into it sees nothing but the dim outlines of an old and worried face.
For me, I think everybody with half a heart tries to do their best to do their part of good during the holiday season.
Everything I do tries to do the same thing, which is to express things that are hard to express, hidden things.
An ideal wife is one who remains faithful to you but tries to be just as charming as if she weren't.
Everyone tries to compare cooks to rock stars. I see more comparisons to the fashion world.
Leadership is an active role; 'lead' is a verb. But the leader who tries to do it all is headed for burnout, and in a powerful hurry.
A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
