It is only by risking our persons from one hour to another that we live at all. And often enough our faith beforehand in an uncertified result is the only thing that makes the result come true.
A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Politics is a profession; a serious, complicated and, in its true sense, a noble one.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.
I like it when someone tells me 'I don't agree.' This is a true collaborator. When they say 'Oh, how great, how great, how great,' that's not useful.
Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.
Honore de Balzac
The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.
Man is an exception, whatever else he is. If he is not the image of God, then he is a disease of the dust. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Marriage can be a magnificent lesson in becoming our best selves; that is true.
There is plenty of television. There are plenty of talk shows. There are plenty of comedians. But there is not plenty of worship of the true and living God.
Charles R. Swindoll
But a true diva has dismissed that drama. A true diva's heart is open, and she's ready to play by her own rules - rules that are gentle and kind.
It's true that I've never had a burning desire to rebel against my parents.
Baloney is flattery laid on so thick it cannot be true, and blarney is flattery so thin we love it.
Fulton J. Sheen
It takes a person who is wide awake to make his dream come true.
Grace is in garments, in movements, in manners; beauty in the nude, and in forms. This is true of bodies; but when we speak of feelings, beauty is in their spirituality, and grace in their moderation.
You can be true to the character all you want but you've got to go home with yourself.
I have resolved on an enterprise that has no precedent and will have no imitator. I want to set before my fellow human beings a man in every way true to nature; and that man will be myself.
You gotta have a dream. If you don't have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true?
Oscar Hammerstein II
The caricature of science is that we hold tight to the theories we have, and shun challenges to them. That's just not true. In fact, we hold our highest rewards for those scientists who can prove others wrong. And by the way, they are famous in their own lifetimes. We don't wait until they're dead.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Integrity is the first step to true greatness. Men love to praise, but are slow to practice it. To maintain it in high places costs self-denial; in all places it is liable to opposition, but its end is glorious, and the universe will yet do it homage.
I think carrying moral baggage is very dangerous for an artist. If you have a duty, it's to be true and not cover up the cracks.
It is better to be true to what you believe, though that be wrong, than to be false to what you believe, even if that belief is correct.
Anna Howard Shaw
If someone is very upper-class, you have a stereotype of him which is probably true. If someone has a working-class accent, you have no idea who you're talking to.
I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that's true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life.
It is thus necessary to examine all things according to their essence, to infer from every species such true and well established propositions as may assist us in the solution of metaphysical problems.
