Quote of the Day
And I have exposed myself to art so that my work has something beyond just the usual potter.
I continue to get further away from the usual painter's tools such as easel, palette, brushes, etc.
A career path is rarely a path at all. A more interesting life is usual a more crooked, winding path of missteps, luck and vigorous work. It is almost always a clumsy balance between the things you try to make happen and the things that happen to you.
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
Like all young reporters - brilliant or hopelessly incompetent - I dreamed of the glamorous life of the foreign correspondent: prowling Vienna in a Burberry trench coat, speaking a dozen languages to dangerous women, narrowly escaping Sardinian bandits - the usual stuff that newspaper dreams are made of.
For children, diversity needs to be real and not merely relegated to learning the names of the usual suspects during Black History Month or enjoying south-of-the-border cuisine on Cinco de Mayo. It means talking to and spending time with kids not like them so that they may discover those kids are in fact just like them.
Mistakes are the usual bridge between inexperience and wisdom.
Wonder knows that while you cannot look at the light, you cannot look at anything else without it. It is not exhausted by childhood, but finds its key there. It is a journey like a walk through the woods over the usual obstacles and around the common distractions while the voice of direction leads, saying, 'This is the way, walk ye in it.'
Sustainable fishing is a fraud. It's a marketing term that really means 'business as usual.'
Certain things in life are more important than the usual crap that everyone strives for.
The last time I saw Ted Kennedy was a generation after my first meeting, at the Senate subway below the Capitol on Obama's Inauguration Day. He was his usual gregarious and gracious self - with beaming smile and booming voice wishing my husband and me good luck with our pregnancy and expressing his excitement about the new president.
I normally don't love green juices, but Body & Eden makes theirs tasty by blending ingredients like avocado and banana with the usual suspects like kale and spinach. Delicious as they are, they're low calorie, and the drink names are catchy: I Have Balance, I Have Energy, and my favorite, I Have Calm.
My recipe for dealing with anger and frustration: set the kitchen timer for twenty minutes, cry, rant, and rave, and at the sound of the bell, simmer down and go about business as usual.
I tried to steer the student newspaper toward more pertinent information instead of the usual gossip and bull.
I do not understand how it is that financial institutions could think that they could take taxpayer money and then turn around and act like it's business as usual. I don't understand how they can't see that the world has changed in a fundamental way, that it is not business as usual when you take taxpayer dollars.
I have made this letter longer than usual, only because I have not had the time to make it shorter.
America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization.
Greatness, generally speaking, is an unusual quantity of a usual quality grafted upon a common man.
William Allen White
Novelists are stamina merchants, grinders, nine-to-fivers, and their career curves follow the usual arc of human endeavour.
And there is a time where you can be beyond yourself. You can be better than your technique. You can be better than most of your usual ideas. And this is a whole other category that you can get into.
Over the past decade... while many businesses have pursued what I call 'business as usual,' I have been part of a different, smaller business movement, one that tried to put idealism back on the agenda.
It's about ladies, as usual. I'm telling the ladies I got the right temperature to keep them warm.
All possible means were used by the infatuated parents to conclude the bargain; and deception put an end to these usual artifices.
Adelbert von Chamisso
To really boost your sense of self-efficacy, think of ways you could modify your usual tasks to suit your personal style.
I imagine a future aircraft, which will take off vertically, fly as usual, and land vertically. This flying machine should have no moving parts. This idea came from the huge power of cyclones.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
